HOW often at this time of year have
people after a long hot day sat outside in
a cool evening breeze and looked up at
Many, I think will have looked out onto
a star lit sky and wondered; how may
stars are there, out there?
Millions most likely, and how long
would it take to count them. Well in ac-
tual fact if you could see a million stars it
would take you roughly 23 days to count
If you don’t believe me, check out a
book by David Schwartz called, ‘How
much is a million’.
The calculations are all there. It’s all
about how long it takes to say the really
But I digress, why all this talk of stars?
Over the period leading up to Christmas
and the New Year the Leongatha Library
displayed 485 woven silk stars that were
made by a number of community groups
within South Gippsland as part of the
One Million Stars to End Violence Project.
Many people who came into the Library
over November and December comment-
ed on the beautiful stars look and asked
where they came from.
The staff took time to explain the pur-
pose behind the display.
The One Million Stars project began in
Brunswick in 2012 as a response to the
rape and murder of local woman, Jill
It has grown into an international move-
ment with stars being woven by commu-
nities across the world.
These stars have been part of stunning
displays at the Royal Exhibition Building
in Melbourne, Queen Street Mall in Bris-
bane, Myer Melbourne and the Sydney
The One Million Stars project is an op-
portunity for us to bring light and hope in
the world and to make something beauti-
ful and powerful together.
We know that domestic violence, vio-
lence on our streets, racism and harass-
ment is happening right now and often

The One Million Stars project is an op-
portunity to remind each other that we
can do something about it.
The goal is to weave one million stars
for an installation during the Gold Coast
2018 Commonwealth Games.
Every woven star reminds us that we
have to make safe spaces and that it
doesn’t just happen.
Every star is a commitment to resist
violence and revenge, to believe in forgive-
ness and healing.

Presents for pets
THE end of the year is always full of anticipation and excitement
as everyone gears up for Christmas.
A team of 11 people from the various churches of Korumburra
recently held a free Christmas program for primary students at the
Parish Hall. There was a buzz in the air as everyone got involved in
the music, games and stories - centred on the birth of Jesus Christ,
the “reason for the Season”.
It was great fun and each child was able to take home a bag of
various craft items they made during the session.
Students should stay tuned for the next free holiday program
offered by the Combined Churches, which will be on next Easter.
The crafty children made presents to take home.
The children took home the craft they created.
TAC calls for a new kind of resolution
THE New Year is a time many of us re-
solve to eat healthier or save more, but
the Transport Accident Commission is
encouraging Victorians to make a differ-
ent resolution for 2017 and beyond.
The TAC is calling on Victorians to
make a commitment to themselves and
their loved ones to help reduce the num-
ber of lives lost on our roads.
TAC road safety manager Samantha
Buckis urged every Victorian to consider
the role they could play in reducing road
trauma in 2017.
“As Victorians look forward to 2017
and start planning what they would
like to achieve in the future, we encour-
age them to think about how they can
contribute to reducing the number of
lives we lose on our roads each year,”
Ms Buckis said.
“Alongside more trips to the gym and
a healthier bank balance, a commitment
to safer driving should be added to the
list of resolutions.”
For road users looking to improve
their driving behaviour, the TAC sug-
gests: slowing down, never using a
phone while driving, buying a safer car,
always planning a safe way home from
functions involving alcohol and factoring
in rest stops on long trips.
“Whether you’re living in metropolitan
or regional areas, planning a safe way
home at this time of year is particularly
important,” Ms Buckis said.
“Planning how you’re getting home
means you can enjoy the night, with-
out having to take the risk of getting
behind the wheel.”
While drink-driving remains socially
unacceptable for the vast majority of
Victorians, TAC research last year found
one in 10 still got behind the wheel de-
spite their alcohol intake during the 12
months leading into the survey.
“Research shows most Victorians do
the right thing, but drink-driving re-
mains one of the biggest killers on our
roads and we still have a way to go.
“The responsibility lies with everyone -
leave the keys behind if you’re going to be
consuming alcohol and plan a safe way
Avoiding getting behind the wheel while
hung over and factoring in rest stops on
longer journeys are also important re-
minders for seeing in the New Year safely.
