WEATHER

Wintry weather is here to stay for a while yet, but today won't be as bad as some of the recent cold weather. A minimum of four degrees, but the mercury will eventually hit 15 degrees. It will be cloudy, with the possibility of showers and some light wind.

FIVE YEARS AGO

Beulah stalwart Tony Lehmann will play his 500th game for the Blues against Ouyen United. Lehmann, 49, has played with the Blues since he was nine years old and despite attempting to end his football career five years ago, he has continued to answer the call from the Blues when the reserves side needed a player and the games have kept adding up.

“I've experienced body image issues a bit and a lot of my friends have experienced the pressures of having to look like a Barbie doll.'' - Warracknabeal College school captain and Yarriambiack Shire Young Achiever of the Year Maddy Jeffery on body image pressure.
