Brumby Run dried out

The Riverine Herald - - YEAR IN REVIEW 2018 -

THE 2018 Bil­l­abong Ranch Brumby Run has been can­celled due to a lack of wa­ter, (un­like last year’s event, pic­tured). With drought sweep­ing through the coun­try, Bil­l­abong Ranch’s dams at only 50 per cent ca­pac­ity and wa­ter al­lo­ca­tions not at 100 per cent, or­gan­is­ers Richard and Kerri Ac­quisto have re­alised they do not have a suf­fi­cient amount of wa­ter to make any mud. The Brumby Run is an an­nual ob­sta­cle course at Bil­l­abong Ranch and in­cludes a swim in the chan­nels and a heave through a mud pit.

Fake let­ters prove costly

FOR­MER Mur­ray Shire coun­cil­lor Gavin Burke has been “vin­di­cated” af­ter win­ning his defama­tion and ma­li­cious false­hood case against for­mer Mur­ray Shire mayor Graeme Shiells and his wife San­dra. In Mel­bourne County Court, Mr Burke was awarded $75,000 in dam­ages (which in­cluded $15,000 in ag­gra­vated dam­ages). He was also awarded costs, which are ex­pected to be sig­nif­i­cant given the drawn out progress of the ac­tion.
