The Change the Game pilot was launched in November 2015 and buddied 10 up and coming female athletes with 10 emerging leaders (male or female)from the industrial giant, both groups purposely chosen to represent diversity.

BlueScope’s general manager for people and performance Kristie Keast led the program’s development and said because sport was such an important part of Australian culture they wanted to be apart of it.

‘We were trying to find innovative ways of tapping into different experiences to grow all of our people,” she said. “It offers personal development and growth for all participants in terms of having an innovative way of sharing experiences in business and sport.”

The program runs for 12 months where each pair will learn about each other’s world and what drives their success in the hope of strengthening attributes within themselves.

Aldi wants land

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

Aldi has confirmed it is looking at land in Kyneton to develop a new store.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

A spokesperson has revealed to theExpressthe supermarket chain would like to build in town within the next five years.

“Kyneton has been identified as favourable for an Aldi store in the medium-to-long term, however we will continue to assess this location based on growth opportunities in surrounding areas,” the spokesperson said.

Aldi would not confirm or deny whether the site at the corner of Market and Ferguson Streets would be the potential location, but did say it had a particular site in mind.

“As part of our expansion plans, we are currently assessing the suitability of a site in the suburb … at this stage we have not secured a suitable site,” the spokesperson said.

It was rumoured last week that property developer Ian Stewart had sold or was selling all orpart of the Market/Ferguson Streets site to Aldi.

Mr Stewart bought the property eight years ago with a supermarket in mind but went on to begin a 22-lot residential development on site. So far, only two townhouses have been built. The old stock agents building also remains on site, although it does not have heritage protection.

The spokesperson said Aldi would work closely with local stakeholders if it was to establish a new store in Kyneton.

“We work closely with local planning bodies such as councils, other businesses and community groups, to help ensure new stores positively impact the local area.”

Letters to the editor

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

VALIANT: Owners of Beechworth IGA Jim and Patricia McCormack give their gratitude to the fire and rescue personnel at the scene of the fire on Saturday night. A momento and tributeTOGETHER with the Beechworth community, we were shocked by the devastating fire that gutted the Ritchies IGA supermarket building on Saturday night.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

However, it is a consolation to us that no lives were lost in the blaze and none of the surrounding buildings were damaged.

For this, we extend our heartfelt thanks to the fire and rescue personnel who workedto bring the fire under control in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Those involved in the fire response came from local stations and also regional centres near such as Albury, Wodonga, Bendigo and Shepparton.

Their skill and professionalism was first-class. We would like to specially thank Paul King and the Country Fire Authority, Sergeant Geoff Still and the officers of Victoria Police, Mayor James Trenery, Councillor Bernard Gaffney,Glen Colwell and the Indigo Shire Council for the role they played in coordinating the response to the disaster.

It was a great pleasure to be involved in the construction of the supermarket 16 years ago and balancing the requirements of a modern store with a respect for the heritage values of the town was a priority.

We knowit is a hub for the township and a source of employment for many local people, who will continue to feel the impact of this event.

Ritchies has become well known for its Community Benefits program and we understand the importance of continuing this scheme through a temporary supermarket premises in town.

We are resolved and fully committed to rebuilding the supermarket within a time frame to minimise inconvenience and ensurethe quality of goods and services it offers the local community will be restored.

When the building is reopened for business, we would like to see the small fire truck that has been situated outside the front entrance to the shop kept in the same position, as both a memento and a tribute to the valiant efforts of the fire fighters at the building last weekend.

JIM AND PATRICIA MCCORMACK,Owners of Beechworth IGA PremisesBeing Australian is aboutTHE theme for Australia Day this year is “everyone, everywhere”. Whether you’re in a city or regional area it is important to come together to celebrate what is so great about being Australian.

Country towns are excellent places to travel to on this special day, as they really celebrate what it means to be Australian and so many come together in celebration.

I am reminded of a comment made by our patron and previous Governor General Sir William Deane saying many years ago – “we as a nation will be judged by the way we treat our most vulnerable” and we have many vulnerable who are forgotten and isolated.

This year we have already witnessed the damaging effect of bushfires ravaging across Australia, destroying more than a hundred homes and claiming the lives of several people.

We have seen people in Australia putting the wellbeing of other Australians before their own, we have seen victims helping other victims, and we have seen people with very little giving to assist others who have lost loved ones and their homes.

We have also witnessed our courageous fire-fighters who year after year put themselves at risk and our police officers who are the line between the good and criminal elements.

And then there are groups such as Lions Clubs, Rotary Clubs, Country Women’s League, Catholic Women’s’ League and so many others groups and individuals who make great contributions to the community.

This Australia Day, I encourage you to spare a moment for the people that have given their lives and donated their time to fighting the recent bushfires and to think about what being Australian is about.

Pinned under truck

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

A truck driver has made an incredible escape from serious injury after rolling his vehicle at a notorious bend on Cobb and Co Road, Carlsruhe.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Emergency services were called to the scene at 11.40am lastMonday to find the 47 year old Bendigo man conscious and pinned under the passenger side of the cabin by his arm, Woodend SES deputy controller Clive Hubert said.

Emergency services attend to a trapped driver in a truck rollover in Carlsruhe.

The driver was travelling towards Kyneton when the Cleanaway garbage truck rolled onto its left side.

An SES team freed the man in just 40 minutes, using airbags to lift the vehicle enough to dislodge his arm.

Police blocked the road and fire brigades from Carlsruhe and Kyneton were on scene.

Paramedics attended to the man throughout the ordeal. An air ambulance rushed the man to the Royal Melbourne Hospital, initially categorising his arm injuries as serious.

His injuries were soon downgraded to ‘minor’ when it was confirmed he suffered little damage to his arm, Leading Senior Constable Mark Tepper at the Macedon Ranges Highway Patrol said.

The man did suffer a hairline fracture to his ribs, had three nodules on spine knocked off, and had to undergo surgery on his thumb.

“It’s pretty miraculous really, to get away with the level of injuries he has, he’s very lucky,” LSC Tepper said.

The man was travelling along a well-known, dangerous stretch of the road, nearby the old mill, which is signed with an advisory speed of 60km/h – although the road’s limit is 100 km/h.

Two witnesses reported a short rain shower in the area just before the accident which may have affected road conditions, LSC Tepper said.

LSC Tepper said its a timely reminder to all motorists to take extra care on the road and adhere to advisory signage.

“They are there to for the purpose of getting people to slow down, it indicates that there is a danger at that point in the road. They’re there for a reason – so basically obey them.”

Sergeant Geoff Neil of Macedon Ranges Highway Patrol said he was disappointed to see the driver was not wearing a seatbelt.

“He’s a very lucky little Vegemite, it could have been substantialy worse,” he said.

“Like everything there’s lessons to be learnt. Drive to the conditions which includes the vehicle you’re driving and wearing your damn seatbelt.”

Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances to the accident.

Cobb and Co Road remained closed to the public until the scene was cleared late on Monday.
