A Monash university professor said the death of a 38-year old Barooga woman, who died from ectopic pregnancy after an extended ambulance wait, was a very uncommon scenario in Australia. Professor Euan Wallace said it was extremely rare for death to occur from the condition and it more likely to happen in developing countries with little medical service. “It does happen, the tube ruptures because it can’t accommodate the developing pregnancy and bleeds into the woman’s abdomen,” Professor Wallace said.
A proposal to give indigenous groups power to jointly manage Victorian Crown land has represented equality according to local indigenous figure Neville Atkinson. Mr Atkinson praised the Victoria Government it’s commitment to reconciliation. “I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up because it hasn’t been decided yet, but I think it would be huge,” Mr Atkinson said. This comes after just one week ago when it was announced the Yorta Yorta people would co-mange the Barmah national park.
An elderly man who gunned down a Numurkah woman last year, who he was infatuated with, is being sued by her children for compensation. 36-year old mother of three Jodie Blake was fatally shot on March 5 last year by 65-year old Ronald Sauders who later turned the gun on himself. Her children are seeking compensation for emotional and psychological hardship. “Immediately following the shooting of the deceased, (two of the children) attended their dead or dying mother on the floor of the premises,” a court document read.

The Mayor of Shepparton says the council has to accept a controversial brothel development will go ahead in the north-east Victorian region. The council last year refused to extend a planning permit for a brothel to be built on Apollo Drive. The applicant appealed against the decision to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) which has ruled in their favour. Mayor Geoff Dobson says the council accepts VCAT's decision and will cooperate with the applicant. "There's nothing more we can do... the appeal's been through VCAT and the council will react accordingly and wait for the official paper work to come through," he said. But anti-brothel campaigner Mark Rumble has questioned the democracy of the state's planning system if a decision is made contrary to what the community wants. "What's the good of spending all that money and getting our council representatives to attempt to make decisions that are ideally for the betterment of our community and then not be able to follow through on those decisions because people are allowed to appeal to a higher source and have those decisions overturned?" he said. Shepparton's vocal anti-brothel group said there would be no further protest planned after

Next month marks the 20th anniversary of the Walsh Street Killings, which claimed the lives of Constables Damian Eyre and Steven Tynan.
The two officers were shot dead in South Yarra when they responded to reports of an abandoned car.
The National Police Remembrance Day commemorations are a chance to pay respects to the slain officers.
Frank Eyre, who recently retired after more than 45 years in the force, says his son is not forgotten.
"There's a huge photograph in the Shepparton police station of my son, and everyone person who walks into the police station takes a moment to remember the job the police do every day," he said.
"They see me still working the watch house counter and they wonder how I continue to do the job that resulted in the loss of my son. My memories of Damian will remain forever present and the loss that we feel will never go away."
