The way we were

10 years ago The McIvor Times, Fe­bru­ary 17, 2007 A mo­tion of no con­fi­dence in the McIvor Health and Com­mu­nity Ser­vices board of man­age­ment was passed at a pub­lic meet­ing in Heath­cote on Mon­day night … The meet­ing, called by res­i­dent Glen Car­roll, was at­tended by about 200 peo­ple.

Coster­field Pri­mary School was closed by the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion last Fri­day. The teacher, par­ents and five stu­dents re­ceived two days no­tice that the school could no longer re­main open due to dwin­dling num­bers.

Adrian Cof­fey of Toob­o­rac has earned him­self a place in the Vic­to­rian un­der 19 vol­ley­ball team, a fine ef­fort made more so by the fact that he is only 16.

It is in­ter­est­ing to learn that Robert Rainey of Toob­o­rac, Pres­i­dent of the Heath­cote Se­nior Young Farm­ers, has won the right to be the rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the State Fi­nal North Cen­tral Ar­eas in­ter­change visit to New Zealand. Robert will now have to com­pete against five other Young Farmer area win­ners in the State Fi­nal to be held some­time this month.

No­tice: Ru­mours hav­ing been cir­cu­lated in Coster­field and Dis­trict to the ef­fect that I, the un­der­signed, am a po­lice pimp and, there­fore, en­gaged, in un­der­hand deal­ings amongst my fel­low work­man and as­so­ciates, and as such a state­ment is ut­terly false and mis­lead­ing, I hereby de­sire to give it an em­phatic de­nial, and in fur­ther­ance and proof of such de­nial, I fur­ther­more chal­lenge the au­thor or au­thors of such defam­a­tory state­ments to lodge or for­feit £5 in proof.

At the last meet­ing of the McIvor Shire Coun­cil six house­hold­ers at Ar­gyle made ap­pli­ca­tion for the elec­tric light to be in­stalled in their premises.

A first-class pro­gramme was screened by the Heath­cote Fire Brigade Bio­graph last Satur­day evening, over 9,000 feet of film be­ing passed through the ma­chine. One of the pic­tures (two reel) fea­tured the world renowned Char­lie Chap­lin in one of his lat­est screams, “1am." No other artist tak­ing part in this pro­duc­tion, Char­lie's ac­ro­batic move­ments caused much laugh­ter, while oth­ers of the large au­di­ence were amazed.

On Mon­day night about 9 o'clock the whis­tle at the Bom­bay mine blew one long whis­tle. Some of the res­i­dents hear­ing it hur­ried to the mine and found that the gas which had been es­cap­ing from the pipe in the res­i­dence of Mr Doyle had be­come ig­nited and blaz­ing along the wall inside. How­ever, plenty of help was at hand and the flame was sub­dued by turn­ing the gas off. The dam­age done to the build­ing is not great, it be­ing merely scorched on the inside.

Have a laugh

St Peter and Satan were ar­gu­ing one day about the rules and reg­u­la­tions of the game that is foot­ball. Satan pro­posed a game to be played on a neu­tral ground be­tween a se­lect team from the heav­enly host and his own hand­picked boys. ‘‘Very well,’’ said the gate­keeper of Heaven. ‘‘But you re­alise, I hope, that we have got all the good play­ers and the best coaches.’’ ‘‘I know and that’s all right,’’ Satan an­swered un­per­turbed. ‘‘We've got all the um­pires.’’
