Spirit's season not a total loss
What a disappointing season it has been for the Bendigo Spirit women's basketball team.
Even though they gave 100 per cent each and every game, they weren't able to get a win.
Tess Lavey was always a shining light every time she took the court.
The Spirit had a lot of young and inexperienced girls on the team and at times were out of their depth, but the experience they got this season will bode them well for their future careers.
Bendigo is the only regional city who have a women's team in the national competition and we should be proud of that.

Is it too late?
Many Australians feel that we have sold out our country over the past decades including prime farming land and infrastructure assets.
Just two that come to mind are Cubby Station, but the most worrying one being the 99-year lease on the Darwin Harbour initiated by the Northern Territory CLP government supposedly with out any knowledge of the federal government.
On the evidence that has been presented to us over many years, we are entitled to form the opinion that the takeover of any worthwhile projects of interest to this particular country has well and truly occurred, and now we are paying a very heavy "price" for our poor judgement.
Another, more real explanation cannot be printed in this news paper.
Now our present government is beating its chest and endeavoring to deflect their past indiscretions by now saying that they want to rip up any further agreements that any state of Australia may enter into with this same major owner of most of our country forthwith.
Many could hardly disagree with this proposal and a good start would be the Darwin Harbour agreement.
But has the sale of the infrastructure horse well and truly bolted and unable to be captured. Many would say definitely and very regrettably-- yes.

KFC planning confusion
The traffic through this intersection is already a challenge. This is a major connector with Eaglehawk and a major truck route. How will a vehicle turning off Midland Highway into Howard Street, turn right into the site?
There will be very little room and because there is only one lane for vehicles, traffic flow will be impeded, thus creating a dangerous hazard.
