Fears at rest AN INDEPENDENT study has revealed that night-time train commuters feel much safer when Protective Services Officers (PSOs) are manning their train station. Market research consultants DBM carried out the study across a selection of stations patrolled by PSOs - including Yarraville, South Yarra, Noble Park, Epping, Frankston and Box Hill - to determine how effective the officers were in maintaining perceptions of public safety. The study found: Night-time train users gave PSOs almost universal approval, with 94 per

·

cent agreeing that PSOs are a good idea and 93 per cent keen to seek their help if they felt unsafe; 94 per cent of night-time train users reported having seen PSOs on patrol, and those commuters who knew that PSOs patrolled their station felt safer; and Two-thirds of parents said they would be happier about their children travelling by train at night, now that PSOs are patrolling. PSOs guard the stations in pairs between 6pm and the last train and are equipped with the same weapons as police.

· ·

They also have the authority to shoot as a last resort. There are currently 488 PSOs working at 79 train stations across the network. Across the West, PSOs are stationed at Footscray, West Footscray, Yarraville, Tottenham, Werribee, Hoppers Crossing, Williams Landing, Sunshine, St Albans, Watergardens, Melton, Altona, Williamstown, Laverton and Newport. Ginifer train station became the latest to staff PSOs, with officers starting their shift last Tuesday. PSOs have issued more than 12,000

infringement notices for a wide range of offences, including being drunk in a public place, possessing alcohol, graffiti and weapons. “We committed to making our railway stations places of safety, not fear, and these are extraordinary findings and testament to the Coalition Government’s commitment to introduce PSOs at metropolitan and major regional railway stations from 6pm until the last train every night of the year,” Police Minister Kim Wells said. The State Government has promised to deploy 940 PSOs across Melbourne’s train stations by November 2014.

THE 24th annual Williamstown Swimming and Surf Life Saving Club’s Australia Day Swim is on Sunday 26 January. Club president Iain Dickson said they wanted to encourage swimmers to enter the event and start focusing on training - with a group of friends or family. “Now is the time for people to focus on their swim preparations for the summer season,” Mr Dickson said. Race director Simone Trigger and said the swim day is the club’s major fundraising event for the year. “The greater community of Williamstown is aware of the

WSLSC but may not have any direct contact with it,” Ms Trigger said. “The Australia Day Swim is an opportunity for the club to present itself to the greater community by demonstrating the contribution that it makes.” She said it was also an opportunity to bring swimmers from all over Australia to the historic bayside suburb of Williamstown with past winners including some of the greats of Australian swimming. The event attracts many swimmers in the categories Juniors (12-17 years), Open (1829 years) Seniors (30-39 years, Masters (40-49 years), Veterans (50-59 years) and Veterans Plus

(60 years and over). There are three events over a distance of 1km, 2km and 5km. Local Williamstown identity Mark Davis, director of Stonehenge, is continuing to support the local community and will be a major sponsor of the Australia Day Swim. Greg Hocking Elly Partners are also getting behind the event. Director Wayne Elly is a strong believer in supporting the local community and acknowledges the work carried out by volunteer lifesavers and members of the club.

THE new CEO of the West’s largest advocacy group has promised to focus more on social issues like violence against women. Craig Rowley was confirmed as the CEO of LeadWest earlier this month after Anton Mayer retired from the top job. Mr Rowley comes from a background of both public and private enterprises and has lived in the West for over 10 years with his wife and two children. He was also involved in corporate and community development with Stonnington Council. It was this experience that Mr Rowley said made him want to join an organisation like LeadWest. “With my job I would drive through Toorak and see the big mansions before driving home to the West,” he said. “It made me think how different our communities were and how I’d like to give something back to the West.” Mr Rowley said during his tenure as CEO of LeadWest there would be better engagement between all members of the group so that they “can see the fruits of their efforts translate into results”. He also said there would be a renewed focus on social issues that would in turn improve the West’s financial outlook. “When you look at issues like preventing violence against women, the investment isn’t very high, yet a reasonable amount of money can make a huge difference to people’s lives,” he said. “If we can make a difference in some of these areas then we can increase people’s opportunities to participate.” Mr Rowley also said that while Maribyrnong Council had signalled that they were planning on leaving LeadWest, they would still be members for another two years. He said he could see potential that the council would change its mind in that time and remain members of LeadWest.

Deadly increase By NICOLE VALICEK HOBSONS Bay has experienced one of the biggest annual increases in local road fatalities according to the latest statistical summary by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC). According to the data Hobsons Bay, Boroondara and Port Phillip munipalities had the biggest increase in local fatalities in the 12 months to the end of September 2013.

Four fatalities occurred in Hobsons Bay in 2013, compared to one in 2012 and none in 2011, up 300 per cent from last year. However, as at midnight 23 October 2013, overall fatalities in Victoria are down 19 per cent compared to the same time last year. But TAC’s chief executive officer Janet Dore said with 182 lives lost on Victorian roads this year, it was important to remember there were still 182 families grieving for a loved one.

Ms Dore said the TAC’s latest statistical summary, released last Wednesday, showed that Victorians still needed to take care on the roads. “The summary shows that in the 12 months to the end of September 2013, fatalities in Melbourne reduced by 16 per cent compared to the previous year,” Ms Dore said. But she said despite this many localities, including Hobsons Bay, have seen a tragic increase in local road trauma. Ms Dore said the TAC is urg-

ing Victorians not to be complacent about road safety, despite a downward trend in the road toll. “The TAC is working with our Road Safety partners, the Government and the community to implement the ‘safe system’ approach: to have safer people in safer cars on safer roads at safer speeds.” The Safe System recognises that it’s not one single action, but a range of initiatives that address all aspects of the road network that will reduce the road toll.

Parking progress HOBSONS Bay City Council has noted the progress made on implementing the Williamstown, Altona and Newport Parking Strategies. The strategies aimed to make the most efficient use of existing and future parking resources around the commercial precincts. Key actions include: constructing commuter parking in Market St, Newport; advocating for improved bus and train services in Altona and improving safety at the station; adopting changes to the statutory car parking rates and altering the way parking is assessed; monitoring commuter parking in Newport; and investigating the possibility of a decked car park in Williamstown at the rear of the Williamstown Town Hall and Coles supermarket. Some of the outstanding actions include: undertaking a review of trader parking issues; reviewing the existing resident parking scheme; and preparing a parking overlay for inclusion in the Hobsons Bay Planning Scheme. The parking implementation plans will encourage the use of integrated transport and makes effective use of walkable parking options.

Scam warning By XAVIER SMERDON POLICE are warning residents to be vigilant to avoid becoming the victims of a new scam. Leading Senior Constable Dawn Youla said a resident from Point Cook had reported receiving a call from a company called CPR. Several people claiming to be from the company called the resident and stated that he owed over $3000 in outstanding court fines from a matter in New South Wales. “The gentleman was placed under considerable pressure to deposit the outstanding amount into a Commonwealth Bank account,” Leading Sen Const Youla said. “The gentleman, while very rattled, had the good sense not to comply with this demand. He was then threatened with arrest for non-compliance.” Leading Sen Const Youla said the incident was a timely reminder to residents to report any call they think may be a scam.

Give your kitchen a stunning makeover with Granite Transformations, the largest kitchen renovation company in the world.

Family tells pooch: ‘fangs’ for the save A WILLIAMSTOWN woman got the shock of her life after she discovered a venomous intruder making itself at home in her kitchen pantry last week. Sally Hicks said if it was not for her Tibetan Spaniel Gemma, the Tiger snake that slithered unnoticed inside the house would have been left there for her children to discover. Ms Hicks said she was sitting at her desk at home when the dog started barking and did not stop when asked. “I thought that was really odd she was still barking when I asked her to stop. It was a real warning sort of bark,” she said.

She realised Gemma’s bark was directed at the kitchen and on inspection realised the pantry door was left open and there was half a snake’s head popping out. Ms Hick said she was quite close to the snake at that stage. She grabbed the dog and phone and rang the council who contacted the snake catcher while Ms Hicks stood where she could monitor the reptile. “I had no idea the snake was in the house if it wasn’t for the dog warning me,” she said. Ms Hick said if the snake had gone unnoticed she would have left

the house with the intruder still inside. And the first thing her two children, Lily, 11, and Evi, 7, do when they get home is head straight to the pantry. “They would have got more than they bargained for,” she said. Ms Hick said the snake catcher came within half an hour but she was shocked to discover that the Williamstown Hospital does not stock anti venom. “I know the vets stock anti venom for cats and dogs but the hospital doesn’t stock it for people,” she said. Ms Hick said she was particularly concerned for the nearby William-

stown High school with fears new ponds could be attracting the reptiles with reported sitings inside school buildings this year. “There have always been snakes in the rifle range but there have never been three large ponds full of frogs close to the high school to bring snakes even closer,” she said. “We’re lucky to have wet lands and wildlife, but we need to manage the risks that go with that.” If a snake is on your property, in a reserve or on the roadside and is causing a concern to you, please contact 9932 1000.

Toyota talks welcomed HOBSON’S Bay mayor Angela Altair has welcomed talks between the Victorian Premier Denis Napthine and Toyota executives at the company’s Japanese headquarters. Toyota has requested more State and Federal government assistance to keep the Altona plant viable. “I would urge the State and

Federal governments to offer any assistance they can to help secure the future of our local car industry and local jobs,” Cr Altair said. Cr Altair said Toyota is a valued corporate citizen, employing 3300 people at its Altona plant and any initiative that will improve the future stability of that site would be well

received by Hobsons Bay and Melbourne’s West. “With news last week that Toyota is offering up to 100 voluntary redundancies, these talks come at a crucial time.” Hobsons Bay Councillors and senior council officers toured the Altona plant last week.

So close to their hearts

SALE EXTENDED MUST END 31st OCTOBER

By NICOLE VALICEK FOR someone with a lifethreatening heart problem having access to a defibrillator machine could mean all the difference between life and death. Mother Caroline Anderson lives each day with this constant worry. Her son Daniel Day, 5 who was born in August 2008 was diagnosed with a Congenital Heart Defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. Commonly referred to as “TOF”, the condition means that there are combinations of four heart defects that are present at birth. These defects together affect the structure of the heart and how blood flows through it. Daniel required open heart surgery at the age of 14 months at the Royal Children’s Hospital. Today Ms Anderson said Daniel lives a relatively normal life, and participates in a number of activities, but he still has a small series of holes in his heart and a leaking pulmonary valve. “Unfortunately children like Daniel who have had a Tetralogy of Fallot repair procedure are at a higher risk of experiencing life-threatening events, such as ventricular arrhythmia and sudden death,” she said. “If that does occur ... the best first aid that could be offered is a defibrillator.” Ms Anderson said in all of the activities Daniel does, including swimming, soccer and karate, they make sure the clubs own a defibrillator machine.

iel to attend next year. Again they went with the one that owns a defibrillator over their preferred option. Last week the family received news that the Heartstart Foundation, a project of the Rotary Club of Williamstown, would donate a defibrillator to Sacred Heart in Newport. “To know that where he is spending the majority of his time has a defibrillator is amazing, and obviously it’s not just going to benefit Daniel, it’s going to benefit the wider community.” “It’s very overwhelming that this generosity exists.” Heartstart Foundation director Claude Bury has a personal affiliation with the program that

aims to install defibrillators in schools and provide training for staff, after experiencing a number of heart complications. This included a cardiac arrest in 1997, four subsequent heart attacks and a quadruple bypass. “So you can see why I’m so passionate about these defibrillators,” he said. “Defibrillators now are proven life savers.” Since 2005 Heartstart has donated 28 defibrillators to schools across Victoria and Tasmanian and 12 personal donations to those in need, including Daniel Day. Donations to Heartstart can be made to the Rotary Club of Williamstown.

HOBSONS Bay City Council has welcomed $90,000 of state government funding to go towards stage two of the play space upgrade of AB Shaw Reserve and $40,000 for the Altona Meadows junior skate park. Minister for Sport and Recreation Hugh Delahunty announced the funding at the reserve on Monday. The council will contribute $100,000 to the AB Shaw Reserve project and $40,000 to the Altona Meadows junior skate park project. Wetlands Ward councillors

Colleen Gates and Luba Grigorovitch said the funding will secure the reserve’s standing as a real showcase for the community. “The second stage of works at AB Shaw Reserve will result in a more inclusive space through the installation of new accessible play equipment, such as swings, tunnels, a trampoline and climbing structures,” Cr Gates said. She said the upgrade will also include paths and new pedestrian access as well as the establishment of natural play elements and a sensory garden,

offering wonderful new play opportunities for the benefit of some of the youngest residents. The detailed design of stage one has been completed and construction will commence in early 2014. The value of these works is $140,000. Works will include the establishment of accessible paths of travel, the replacement of existing play equipment and installation of new equipment and play experiences and the construction of a multisport court for netball and basketball.

A DISCO in Williamstown has provided young people with a fun and safe environment for the past 25 years and they’re not done dancing. Next month on Friday 15 November the Williamstown Blue Light Disco will celebrate 25 years of operation. Williamstown Blue Light Disco President Harry Dumergue has been part of the committee of volunteers who have been dedicated to running the event since it began. Mr Dumergue said the disco’s aim is for children to have fun in a safe environment in which to enjoy themselves.

“They provide a safe place for teenagers to have a night out without the risks of alcohol and drugs,” he said. Group treasurer Helene Deahl is another of the group’s life members. Ms Deahl said what keeps the disco going is the dedicated people that volunteer their time every month to ensure its success. “Any of these initiatives that people put together, what keeps them going is the committed adults that put the time in,” she said. Mr Dumergue said most importantly the volunteers are there to keep the kids entertained.

“They can rely on us to be here, we entertain them and they love it, as long as they continue to enjoy it we’ll keep going.” Victoria has 41 Blue Light Disco’s operating throughout the state. Off duty police and civilians are involved in the disco supervision. The next disco that will celebrate 25 years of operation will be held on 15 November, at the Newport Baptist Hall, Newport 7.30pm to 9.30pm. Past disco volunteers and attendees are invited to attend the upcoming celebrations. For more information, contact Harry on 0400 562 145.

Dogs lead to love By NICOLE VALICEK YOU would be barking mad to deny destiny was not at play the day Paul and Sharon McLay met. It was 2008 and a day like any other when the two strangers from Williamstown decided to walk their dogs - or so they thought. Sharon was walking her red and blue heelers Meg and Mae while Paul was with his own blue heeler Minh. Both were walking near the time ball tower in Williamstown when in a strange turn of events both of their dogs ran into some shrubbery, emerged and returned to the opposite owner. The strangers were forced to meet by their respective canines and the start of a strong and unexpected friendship developed. “Something was going on we just didn’t realise it,” Sharon said. “We never organised to catch up at the dog park and walk. We’d just always see each other. We’d walk together for a good hour, and the dogs would play.” “We found we were really good friends. We were talking to each other about anything and anything which was rare for both of us. We both found it a little bit interesting.” The friendship went on for three years until a kiss in February 2011 changed everything. The pair again randomly met up when both were out with friends at the Pirates Tavern.

Paul and Sharon McLay were introduced by their beloved pets and had a fairytale wedding. 108718 Picture: SUPPLIED “Finally we had a kiss, someone had to do something. We finally did and here we are in 2013 married.” The couple married in September this year with Sharon describing the experience as “a bit of dog magic”. “It felt like it was meant to be, but it felt like the dogs were quite keen on it.” “Our advice to anybody is to love a dog and find a nice person walking it, it sounds really corny but it worked for us.” She hoped their story could inspire optimism in others. “We both had to have open hearts and minds we’d both

been in other relationship that hadn’t worked, we both vowed not to get into another one, both of us said we weren’t going to do that. “It just felt magical and I hope other folk can have an open heart and open mind to the prospects for life. “You never know when you will meet someone so perfect, who just turns your whole attitude around.” The couple asked that their wedding guests donate to Edgars Mission farm sanctuary instead of giving them gifts. The couple live in Newport with their four dogs.

Hospital fired up By YASEMIN TALAT STAFF at Werribee Mercy Hospital have been praised for their quick response to a fire that broke out at the hospital last week. Just after lunch time last Monday 21 October the Werribee, Hoppers Crossing and Point Cook appliances responded to the fire. Hospital staff evacuated 28 staff members, eight patients and two visitors while another staff member extinguished the fire. The fire was caused by an electrical fault in a patient call bell system located in the prep-

aration room near the operating theatres. Executive Director Health Services at Mercy Health, Linda Mellors, said the fault was identified after staff noticed the device was hot and was producing smoke. “Our staff were very quick to detect and resolve the issue,” Ms Mellors said. “Patients and staff in the immediate area were moved for their safety while the Metropolitan Fire Brigade attended,” she said. “We also evacuated staff and visitors from nearby areas as a

precautionary measure. Other than those in the immediate area, there was no need to move patients or staff from other inpatient clinical areas in the hospital.” Ms Mellors said all patient call bells in the area were checked and no further issues were found. Lieutenant Paul Ryan of the Werribee Brigade praised hospital staff for their action in moving all the people from the area and extinguishing the fire. “Their swift action prevented further damage or injuries from a potentially serious event,” Lieutenant Ryan said.

By NICOLE VALICEK LAVERTON Community Centre is recruiting volunteers for emergency relief (ER). Volunteer co-ordinator Ellen Warren said the important role would be suited to someone who is switched on and has people skills. “It’s about developing a rapport with people,” she said. “They need to be a people person and they need to have a good communication.” For example she said if a woman comes in with a traumatic experience like a relationship break-up, the volunteer

is expected to chat with them, build a rapport and get the right information to help them without feeling judged or threatened in any way, shape or form. “It’s about building a relationship with a client and a lot of the things we will help them with come out of if that relationship can be built.” The ER volunteer will interview people to access their needs, for example if they require a food parcel, a voucher, if they need assistance prescriptions filled at a pharmacy or if they need to speak to a crisis intervention worker and referred to the Salvation Army.

“They have a conversation and are to assess to what their needs are,” Ms Warren said. “Fundamentally were helping people at risk, people who are marginalised, people who don’t have the basic items they need.” All training is provided. Ms Warren said all volunteers develop a sense of community and joy in knowing they are helping others. She said they have five ER volunteers on the rooster, and would ideally like an additional person to relieve people if they need time off.

Werribee Hyundai Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development Wendy Lovell, Western Metropolitan Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury and his daughter Grace, 2, at the Little Kids’ Day Picture: SUPPLIED In held at Scienceworks last week. 108655

Week for science By NICOLE VALICEK

MINISTER for Children and Early Childhood Development Wendy Lovell was in town last week to launch the week-long celebrations of the youngest people in the community. Ms Lovell officially launched Children’s Week last Monday 21 October at Little Kids’ Day In at Scienceworks a fun day for children under six, their parents and carers. She said the free hands-on learning day was one of many

Children’s Week activities that “engage curious minds through discovery, exploration and play”. “Playing is, after all, one of the most powerful vehicles for learning, with benefits that can last a lifetime,” she said. “Playing with objects accelerates creativity and independence, while giving language and social skills the best chance to grow.” As part of the Little Kids’ Day In early learners are given free rein of the Scienceworks

exhibitions and sites, allowing them to explore and discover in their own time, without older children in the space. “At Scienceworks, we know how important it is for children of all ages to have access to a range of welcoming and inspiring educational experiences,” Manager Scienceworks Dr Nurin Veis said. Since commencing in February 2012, more than 14,000 children and their families have attended Little Kids’ Day In, which is held twice every term.

2013 Annual Meeting The Western Health Annual Meeting will this year be held at 5.30pm on Thursday 14 November in the Panorama Room at Flemington Racecourse. Presentation of staff service awards will commence at 4.30pm. The formal Annual Meeting will commence at 5.30pm.

Recyling puffers By NICOLE VALICEK ASTHMA sufferers across Hobsons Bay are set to breathe a little more easily, thanks to the launch of an Australia-first puffer recycling initiative. The initiative by GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) will be piloted across Victoria with a view to expand nationwide. Altona North Chemmart Pharmacy will participate in the program which encourages patients to return empty respiratory inhalers to participating pharmacies for recycling. Once collected, the inhalers will be taken to a specialist recycling centre.

Recovered plastics will be used in the creation of a range of household items, while nonrecyclable components will be used as fuel or other means to help generate energy. Supported by 49 Chemmart Chemists in Victoria and Asthma Australia, the scheme hopes to help reduce the environmental impact of disposed inhalers which would otherwise end up in landfill. When disposed this way, old inhalers also pose a risk in terms of greenhouse gas emissions should the gas canisters be pierced and any propellant released.

GSK Australia medical director, Doctor Andrew Yeates, said the program had already proved successful in the UK and would help pave the way for a more environmentally sustainable treatment of respiratory disease in Australia. “If every person in Australia were to recycle their inhalers for one year, we would save 52,869 tonnes of CO2 which is the equivalent of driving around the world 26,490 times,” he said. Mr Yeates said by the end of 2015, they hoped to have collected more than 1.5 million inhalers.

GET READY FOR SUMMER Servi Evapoce Your Cool rative er Fr om $

By XAVIER SMERDON A POINT Cook mother has her sights set on one goal, to represent her country in her unusual sport. Anna Shedrina moved to Sanctuary Lakes just over two years ago before her son was born and was recently selected for the Commonwealth Games Shadow Team for trap shooting. Along with six other women from around Australia she is vying for two places in the Commonwealth Games team. Earlier this month Ms Shedrina competed at the Australian Masters Games and walked away with a gold medal in every event she entered. Currently ranked fourth in Australia for trap shooting, at 31 years old and after just eight years in the sport she is a good chance to achieve her dream of representing her country. But Ms Shedrina said sport did not come naturally to her and she felt lucky to have discovered shooting. “As a kid, I was pretty average at every sport I tried. I had never won a trophy or a medal, which made me want that more than anything else. “Those blue ribbons you get when you win at school sport were very elusive. While others walked around with 10 of them plastered onto their chest, I’d never won one. I found one on the ground once and kept it. “It turns out that I just hadn’t tried the sport that I was good at yet.”

She even set up an ammunition manufacturing business with her partner, Bronze Wing Ammunition, where she works as a finance manager. She said the thrill of beating her competitors is what she loved the most about the sport.

“The feeling that you get when you have a win. The satisfaction you feel to have all your hard work pay off - it never gets old,” she said. “It’s been eight years since (I discovered shooting) and I’ve barely had a weekend away from it. Now, it’s my life - my recreation, my sport and most of my work is related to shooting.”

The Westgate Basketball Association has introduced a Pinkball team to its line-up. 108255 Picture: DAMIAN VISENTINI

Young sports are on the ball 1099215-JO44-13

By CHARLENE MACAULAY THE Westgate Basketball Association is proof you can be a girly girl and still shoot hoops. The group, which has more than 400 kids playing across nearly 60 teams every Saturday out of Whitten Oval Stadium, has recently introduced a Pinkball team to its ranks. Pinkball caters to girls aged between five and 12 years, and is a more feminine take on the sport, with female coaches and helpers, a pink basketball and pink singlets.

DEMO

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basketball is sometimes viewed as a predominantly boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sport, and netball is often seen as the girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sport,â&#x20AC;? Westgate Basketball committee member Jo Hansby said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got lower participation rates in our girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; teams across the board, and our Aussie Hoops coach found out about a Pinkball program that was getting run across Dandenong, and thought it would be great to try it out here in the West. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fun way to advertise basketball to girls - and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say that all girls will want

to do Pinkball, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve still got girls registered in the Aussie Hoops program.â&#x20AC;? The Pinkball team already has 20 young girls signed up. The Westgate Basketball Association has boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; teams in under-10s, under-12s, under14s, under-16s and under-20s, and girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; teams in under-13s and under-17s. The group is also looking to start a womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and mixed adults team. Go to www.westgatebasketball.com.au for more information.

Christmas party ideas to make a party a success. Get out of the night time groove. While people tend to think of parties as evening affairs, they don’t have to be. Even if a company Christmas party idea is to host a meal for guests at a restaurant or hotel, people will drink less at a luncheon rather than a dinner. So just switching the time of day can help make alcohol less of an issue. Break the mould. Whatever a company normally does, change it from year to year. Host a disc golf, skating or bowling party. Remember when choosing a Christmas party idea based on an activity to pick something

·

·

that everyone can do.

· Mix up the guest list. Instead of hosting a Christmas party that’s just for staff, widen the guest list to include extended family, friends, neighbours and business associates. Dealcoholise the Christmas party. There is no rule that alcohol has to be served at a company Christmas party. People can certainly have a good time without drinking alcohol. Just make sure that everyone knows that it’s an alcohol free party ahead of time and that there will be plenty of other things for people to drink. Besides juices, teas, coffees and alcohol-free punches, mocktails can be a fun alternative.

THE one rule of hosting a company Christmas party is not to hold it in the office. It’s a good rule to follow. But there are two problems to solve to make the company Christmas party a success. How to get colleagues to show up and how to solve the alcohol dilemma? Tired and stressed employees may be hard to entice into spending even more time with one another, especially if the annual Christmas party has become a tired tradition. Both happiness and safety can be compromised when people are drinking and as a social host, legally organisers have a duty to supervise their guests and make sure they all get home safely if they’re consuming alcohol at a party. Try some of these company

Men at Work It’s a role that has defined generations of men - the provider, the breadwinner, the worker. When you ask men why they work, a lot of them will say they’re ‘only in it for the money’. When you work for money, you can be financially independent, provide a future for your family and have some control over your life. Sometimes money truly is the only reason a person works. But today it is becoming increasingly important to have a more substantial reason for working. Some want to spend their days doing something their good at, being productive or if they have skills which other people need, they feel obliged to supply them. The idea of not going to work and spending time at the beach, watching television, going to the movies or shopping, hanging out with friends and playing sport might appeal, but at least some money is necessary to do these things. Relaxing and kicking back is great for a holiday, but the novelty will wear off and leave you feeling aimless and bored. The benefits of paid and unpaid work are strongly linked to values we hold. When you know what your values are regarding work, you can work out what you hope to achieve through working, what your overall ambitions are, set meaningful goals, choose jobs that will satisfy you in ways that are deeper than your hip pocket and understand why you feel dissatisfied in a job that doesn’t fit with your values. Visit www.worksafe.com.au to find out more.

F How would you rate your FB: ccooking skills? RM: Not as good as Donna R H but good enough. All Hay y need is a bit of spunk to you c cook. FB: What is your signature d dish? RM: My Peking Duck Soup with corn, asparagus and egg ribbons. Everyone loves it! FB: If you could only have one more meal, what would it be? RM: I would have my mum’s Pho - Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup. FB: What is your favourite food? RM: European desserts. I can turn into a professional eater if you place a plate of European desserts in front of me. FB: What is your favourite drink? RM: I’m alcohol intolerant so give me an exotic mocktail any day and any time. In summer give me a Custard Apple Smoothie. In winter, take me to a café and we can laugh over perfectly made coffee. FB: Which five people would you most like to invite to dinner?

“Bette r to be de food fo r three prived of days, th tea fo an – Chin r one” ese pr overb

RM: Actor Henry Cavill (Superman.) He doesn’t have to say anything, Her Excellency The Honourable Quentin Bryce - she can lay her wisdom on me. Her style is impeccable. Coco Chanel, Jimeoin for a good laugh and the crowd that made the Rising Sunshine youtube clip. FB: Do you have a kitchen tip for us? RM: Buy fresh and be brave. Test out new ingredients. Hydrate your mints by soaking them in water for a few minutes. Soaking not only hydrates but kills all the bugs, and takes away dirt and sand. There is a science and art to cooking. Your dish can look like a masterpiece if you want it to. The science is the method you use. If it does not turn out the first time you try it, keep at it. People who are great at making a dish without a doubt have made it more than once. Have fun in your kitchen. Make it easy and make it fresh! Make a mess if that is what it takes.

Van Ritchie’s Asian Peking Duck Soup With Asparagus, Corn And Egg Ribbons: As promised, here is one of Van’s own special recipes: It serves 8. STEP 1: With a sharp knife, remove fleshy duck meat off duck bones. Place bones aside. Slice up duck meat and set aside. STEP 2: In a large stock pot and on medium heat, add two tablespoons of vegetable oil.

INGREDIENTS: Half a Roasted Peking Duck 1 Fresh Corn, sliced off the cob 1 cup Fresh Asparagus 200g Packet Assorted Asian Mushrooms 1.5cm Ginger, finely pounded 1 Garlic clove, finely pounded 4 Spring Onions, White Part Minced finely 4 Spring Onions, Finely sliced on angle to serve 2 Ltrs of Water 2 tbsp Vegetable Oil 2 tbsp Soy Sauce Salt and Pepper to taste 4 Eggs 3 tbsp Cornflour 4 tbsp Cold Water Coriander to serve

WESTPOINT

always, if you have a any recipes, tips or other info you’d like to As always share, email me at sarah@howdypartnersmedia.com.au

STEP 4: Add 2 litres water and bring to a boil. Add duck bones. Cook for 15 minutes on high heat then simmer. STEP 5: Before serving beat eggs. Bring pot to medium boil. Pour in eggs and beat vigorously with a fork. STEP 6: In a small bowl add 4 tablespoons cold water and stir in 3 tablespoons of cornflour. Pour in cornflour mixture and stir quickly. Add soy sauce then season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 5 minutes on low heat. STEP 7: Serve with coriander and finely sliced spring onions. TIPS: Do not add eggs and the cornflour until you are ready to eat. The soup can be stored in the fridge for up to a day before serving. You may need to add more cornflour depending on the brand. Use the duck bones to create depth in the stock flavour. These should not be served up in bowls. Hope you enjoy making this wonderful soup and thanks again to Van for sharing her personal recipe with us.

Sport Three’s the charm LIAM TWOMEY THE Western Region Football League will move to a three division format in 2014. The competition’s board confirmed the change in structure last week with the league’s 24 senior teams seen as the right number to support a third-tier. League CEO Bob Tregear said that the new structure is a great step forward for the growing future of the league. “With the successful debut seasons of our two new clubs in Manor Lakes and Sanctuary Lakes this year, as well as the inclusion of Tarneit next season, the third division allows the league to expand and cater for new club development in the future,” he said. The WRFL will follow the same structure as the Essendon District Foot-

ball League which broke into a three-tier set-up in 2012. All 14 Division Two clubs will play each other once in the first 13 rounds of the season. At the conclusion of round 13, the top eight will remain in Division Two while the bottom six will form Division Three. League football operations manager David Newton said that the third division would also allow clubs and players to participate at a level which caters for their skill. “As part of the 2010/13 strategic plan, one of the six key issues raised was the evenness of competition,” he said. “By moving to three divisions it is anticipated that the imbalance that has been evident in recent years will be reduced significantly.

“When analysing the 2013 Division Two competition, the average losing margin of the bottom five teams against those in the top seven was around 20 goals. When the bottom five teams played each other it averaged only seven goals, so therefore it will benefit all clubs in that there will be closer games more often.” The league has also been confirmed that Werribee Districts will move straight into Division One after crossing over from the Victorian Amateur Football Association. The Tigers take the place of Glen Orden in the top division after the Hawks decided it was in their best interests to stay in Division Two. It is anticipated that the draft fixtures for Division One and Division Two will be completed by Friday 15 November.

Division Two premier Glen Orden will be part of a three-tier competition next season. 10523

Clubs back divisions LIAM TWOMEY THE Western Region Football League’s move into a three division competition has been well received by clubs. With the official announcement made last week, the majority of club presidents who would be affected by the split said they thought the move was the best way to curb lopsided results. As one of the newest teams in the expanding WRFL competition, Sanctuary Lakes president Danny Galea saw first-hand the difference between the top and bottom of Division Two. He said he was looking forward to a more even competition in the future. “I think it makes the competition a lot fairer,” Galea said. “If clubs go into Division Three and they are upset about losing so many games then you just have to be better for it. “You need to improve and it is up to you to work your way up to Division One. I think it is a good idea.” Albanvale president Jason Curmi also threw his support behind the three division split however, added that the Cobras would be fighting hard to remain in Division Two. After playing finals for 15 years in a row, Albanvale has found itself in the bottom six the last two seasons. Curmi said he was pleased the league’s decision would allow clubs to earn a spot in Division Two.

“I think the way they have introduced it is the best way to do it with the top eight staying after 13 rounds,” he said. “If you go down then you only have yourselves to blame. I would rather do that than just splitting it right now for the start of the season. “At least it gives you a chance to stay up.” After being on the receiving end of a number of lopsided results during its final year in Division One in 2012, Sunshine Heights was able to establish itself in the Division Two competition this season and made finals. Dragons president John Stewart was confident his side would avoid the bottom six but said the committee believed there were more important things than the division the club competes in. “To be honest, the on-field success in the seniors is a nice by-product of trying to get some of the club culture right,” he said. “If we were to find ourselves playing third division football but we had a strong junior program and we were heading in the right direction in other areas, I would not care at all which division we were playing in. “We pride ourselves on participation levels and our place in the community much more than how we are doing on the park.” The 14 teams in Division Two are, North Footscray, Glen Orden, Parkside, Manor Lakes, Wyndhamvale, Sunshine Heights, Caroline Springs, Albanvale, Braybrook, Sanctuary Lakes, West Footscray, Laverton, North Sunshine and Tarneit.

Based on last year’s ladder positions, Albanvale and Laverton will be forced to fight hard Picture: DAMIAN VISENTINI to remain in Division Two. 100749.

Doggies take charge By LIAM TWOMEY FOOTSCRAY Edgewater continued its strong start to the Premier Cricket season, smashing Essendon by nine wickets. After winning the toss, the Bulldogs sent the Bombers in to bat with immediate success. The bowling combination of Jake Haberfield, Hamish Winter-Irving, Michael Kelly and Sunam Gautam ripped through the batting line up in a dominating performance which saw Essendon dismissed for 96 runs in the 37th over. In reply, Footscray made light work of the total, losing just the one wicket before notching up the win in the 27th over. Opening the batting, Dylan Kight made 52 not out while Travis Dean was also not out on 23. Footscray captain Dean Russ was rapt with his side’s performance, particularly spin bowler Kelly who finished with 2/12 from 10 overs. “The deck was a little bit tacky and it gave a bit to the fast bowlers,” Russ said. “I thought Michael (Kelly) was outstanding. We thought we would get him in the game early and see how it goes and he responded fantastically. He hit really good areas and bowled with great control. “He picked up a couple of wickets later in his spell which he really deserved.” Saturday’s win sees Footscray secure a bonus point and move to a 4-1 win/loss record for the season. “It was great to be able to round off the oneday fixture with a bonus point and a comprehensive win so it has been a very pleasing start to the season,” Russ said. “We just wanted to play good cricket (through the one-day games) and we are doing that. The frustrating thing is that Richmond (round four) was very much the one that got away and there is a realistic chance that we could have been 5-0. “That happens but to be 4-1 is outstanding and we are going into the two-day format with a lot of confidence.” Footscray now has three two-day fixtures in a row, starting with a clash with Prahran this week. Russ said he didn’t expect the make-up of the team to change too much in the longer format of the game. “It is quite a good team that we have at the moment and it is a solid team,” Russ said. “I think it is about doing what we have been doing for an extended period of time. The batsmen need to try and bat as many balls as possible and the bowlers need to focus on hitting the right areas. “We have good options with the ball and we bat quite deep so I can’t see it changing too drastically at all.”

Cody strikes gold By LIAM TWOMEY CODY Sylvester saves her best for the big stage. The Werribee resident competed at her first National Bowls Championships last month and wasted no time making herself at home on the greens. Sylvester and her Victorian teammates won the gold medal in the girls’ fours event. “That is the first time I have ever played in nationals,” she said. “I was nervous at the start but every end that we played I was getting better and better. Then I didn’t feel nervous at all after a while. I just wanted to keep going. “I was very surprised how well we did as a team together to get the

star gold,” Sylvester said. In the team’s first match, Victoria defeated pre-tournament favourites Queensland before also notching up wins against Tasmania and New South Wales to seal the gold. “When we played Queensland, we thought it was going to be a really hard match because they were the favourites but we just smashed

them,” Sylvester said. “After we won (the gold medal), we just kept hugging. We couldn’t believe it, we were so happy. We just wanted to shout it out to everyone. It was great.” However, the 16-year-old wasn’t finished yet and was able to back up her performance with a silver medal in the girls’ pairs. There are no plans to slow down with Sylvester eyeing more success at the top level. “I started bowls because my dad plays and my grandparents used to play so I thought I would join in too,” Sylvester said. “I didn’t want to be left behind. I never thought I would get this far. “I’ve got the state pairs coming

up so I am aiming to do well in that. “After that I will be aiming to get to the Commonwealth Games and just as high as I can go.” For her outstanding sporting achievements Sylvester has been named this month’s Don Deeble Rising Star nominee. The award is run by the Sunshine Western Region Sports Club in conjunction with the Star News Group. Cody will receive $1000 donated by the Yarraville Club Cricket Club and other prizes to assist in her future sporting goals. The Don Deeble Rising Star Award recognises young athletes in the Western Suburbs who have achieved outstanding results at a state and national level.

Werribee Hyundai SALE EXTENDED MUST END 31st OCTOBER

Straight talk By LIAM TWOMEY SINCE Altona’s finals exit at the hands of Sunshine last month, the rumour mill has been in full swing when it comes to the Vikings. But newly appointed committee member and reserves premiership coach Aaron Freeland wants to set the record straight. He and his Altona club mates are fed-up with talk of poor finances and a player walkout, and want to let the WRFL world know they plan on hitting the 2014 season stronger than ever. “There is obviously a fair bit of rumour and discussion about our footy club which is frustrating,” Freeland said. “No-one wants their club spoken about in that way. “What it does is, it encourages other sides to contact your list because they feel there is some vulnerability there. “We certainly want to present to the rest of the league and surrounding leagues that we have got a strong culture and that the players have indicated that they want to stay.” After building its success through the juniors, Freeland expressed how frustrating it is to see massive offers made to some of the club’s rising stars. As well as its 2012 senior flag, Altona has won the last two reserve premierships and went through this season’s under-16 competition undefeated. “I personally never played for money and I just think some of the offers that are getting bandied around for players and great kids from the footy club, it is certainly hard to

Aaron Freeland, speaking at the 2012 reserves grand-final, is confident Altona Football Club can remain at the top. 87153 Picture: MATHEW LYNN compete with,” he said. “We like to remunerate our players as best we can but some of the offers are just astronomical. “It is all well and good clubs spending a lot of money but what do they do when that runs out?” At this stage the only big name that may not be at Altona for round one next year is Jayden Post, who is travelling overseas. However, Freeland said that Post was committed to playing for the football club upon his return. With eight of the 2013 division one clubs replacing their coaches since the end of the season, the Vikings are the only ones yet to name a successor. The club will be accepting applications until Friday 1 November. “The coaching situation is

all going well,” Freeland said. “We have a shortlist at the moment and there has been a fair bit of interest in the position. “I would be encouraging anyone out there that hasn’t applied to certainly apply.” The coaching switch won’t be the only change at Altona with the club also making some adjustments to its board. Most notably, Brendan Post (father of Jayden) is taking over as president from David Gusman. “We are hoping local businesses and other supporters of the footy club can stand up to try and help the club out for one or two years off the field,” Freeland said. “I’m personally going on to facilitate the role of sponsorship manager for the footy club and basically we want to get more business like people on our committee.”

SPOTSWOOD has appointed Tom Langlands as a playing coach for next season. Langlands was captain at the Woodsmen this year and replaces Chris O’Keefe who stood down from the top job at season’s end. “I have wanted to coach for a few years now. It was a pretty tough gig to get and I was rapt to get the nod on Monday,” Langlands said. “In the last three years with Chris (O’Keefe) we have played in a flag and had two one-point losses which are obviously shattering. “I think this is a chance to refresh the boys. Obviously it is a massive step up because at the end of the day it all comes back to the coach in terms of your results. I am looking forward to it, that’s for sure.” Langlands played for the Woodsmen as a junior before taking his football to the next level with Victorian Football League side Williamstown. After three years at the Seagulls and one season in the Ovens and Murray Football League, he returned to Spotswood in 2011 and played in the club’s premiership win against Albion.

Time for cricket to shine bright CRICKET has certainly taken over from the footy now that the overly long trade period has finished. I am not a fan of the AFL taking up the headlines for the entire year. The English side has arrived and it will be very interesting to see how former Hoppers Crossing player Stuart Broad is welcomed by the Aussie fans. I have been told he is a great bloke by those that played with him at Hogans Rd but I am sure he is in for an MCG reception for the Boxing Day Test to rival that of John Snow in his heyday. The Werribee Cricket Club and Football Club Ashes Dinner has been moved to Wednesday 27 November at the Werribee Sports Club and will feature the very colourful Rodney Hogg. Tickets for the dinner are available through Janelle on 9741 9862 for $50 per person for a 2 course dinner with drinks at bar prices. IT is the season of cricket functions and I was the MC for a roast for local legend Michael “Tocka” O’Keefe last weekend at the Yarraville Club Cricket Club. Footscray greats Barry Watson and Tony Dodemaide were there for what was a great night to celebrate Tocka’s career and retirement from the game. Or at least we thought that was the case. Truth is, he played the next day in the fourths, so he could fulfil his dream of playing with his son, and who could blame him for that. There are few more genuine people in local sport than “Tocka” and I was very pleased to be a small part of the night. The video done by his teammates was priceless as was the message from his mate from Warrnambool Dave Hughes.

LES Twentyman loves to bring up a cricket day from the 1980s, when he teamed up with Andrew Gibson, and I partnered Brad Hardie, in a double wicket competition at Sunshine High School to raise some money for charity. The end result was Brad and I were thrashed, I rolled my ankle and missed a game the following weekend for Hoppers Crossing. The good news was, we raised some money for the 20th man Fund, and I knocked the helmet of Les’ head with the first ball I bowled. Les has an Ashes Breakfast coming up on Wednesday 20 November from 7am in the Champions Room at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre at Albert Park. For more details contact Bronwyn on 9689 4800 or Bronwyn@20thmanfund.com.au. The panel includes Merv, Deano, Hoggy, Dodders and Tony Jones as MC.

Pathfinder can find its own way THE all-new Nissan Pathfinder family SUV sets a new benchmark in driving and is now available in Australia. This next generation SUV is designed for families. Every detail has been meticulously considered, from the modern styling to new levels of comfort achieved thanks to interior luxuries, both big and small. With seven seats as standard and an ingenious EZ Flex seating system which makes the third row easily accessible and comfortable for all, the family will board and exit like never before. Once inside, the Tri-Zone climate control, which comes standard across the range, and the Tri-Zone entertainment, available on selected models, will have all occupants wishing journeys were just that little bit longer.

The roomy interior of the all-new Nissan Pathfinder has a whopping 2259 litres of cargo space when the second and third row seats are folded flat. The second row splits 60/40, and the third 50/50 to give numerous options for carrying both passengers and awkward loads. Then there’s the ingenious under-floor storage area, with even more room to stow stuff or keep valuables out of sight. The all-new Nissan Pathfinder range offers the option of two wheel drive or intuitive four wheel drive variants, as well as smooth responsive acceleration thanks to the next generation CVT, towing capability and the innovative around view monitor that makes parking safer and easier than ever. This is the ultimate SUV for the modern family. There is a host of safety

features as standard across the range including: five star ANCAP safety rating, six airbags, tyre pressure monitoring system, reverse parking camera with predictive path technology, reversing sensors, vehicle dynamic control, traction control system, anti-lock braking system, brake assist and electronic brakeforce distribution. Visit Werribee Nissan at 14-26 Heaths Rd, Hoppers Crossing, open from Monday to Saturday, 8.30am-6pm, and Sunday, 10am-5pm, or call 9974 5800 to test drive this vehicle. Alternatively visit Western Nissan on the corner of Western Highway and Christies Rd, Caroline Springs, open from Monday to Saturday, 8am-6pm and Sunday, 10am-5pm, or call 8361 8255 for more information.

History of performance THERE has only ever been one Golf GTI and nearly 40 years after its debut, it’s still turning heads. Its long history and potent mix of comfort, safety, style, value and blistering performance sets it apart from its rivals. This is a car with little to prove but much to offer. The new GTI wears its heritage lightly and demonstrates just how good a car can be when new ideas and proven technologies are carefully combined. It’s a kind of automotive alchemy and it means the GTI sets the benchmark for performance hatchbacks. It’s not just about the numbers, though the GTI’s numbers in power, acceleration and weight look very good indeed. It’s also about how the car feels and how it makes the driver feel. Every individual element, from the 2.0-litre, 162kW turbocharged TSI engine and sixspeed manual or optional DSG transmission to the Adaptive Chassis Control and Driving Profile Selection, Progressive Steering and ESP Sport Program, is strong on its own. But somehow they come together to create a car and an experience that’s much, much more than the sum of its parts.

The sporty Volkswagen Golf GTI model is hotter than ever with all new features. With its classic Golf lines, famous badge, distinctive alloy wheels, honeycomb pattern front grille and red stripe motif, there’s no mistaking it for any other model. Inside, quality touches and unexpected features abound. Sports seats, colour multifunction display, red stitching, GTI badging and red ambient lighting set the scene. Throughout you’ll find careful design, pleasant-to-touch upholstery and decorative inlays, not to mention a thoroughly modern feature set including advanced infotainment systems, ergonomic seats and easy-touse controls. GTI makes no concessions in the performance stakes and cuts no corners when it comes

to keeping its occupants as safe from harm as possible. Whether its systems designed to help avoid accidents like ESP, driver fatigue detection and daytime driving lights or systems designed to reduce the effect of accidents such as airbags, safety optimised front head restraints and a five-star EURO NCAP, the GTI will do everything it can to keep both driver and passengers as safe as can be. Visit Werribee Volkswagen to test drive this vehicle at 8-12 Heaths Rd, Hoppers Crossing, on Monday to Saturday 8.30am-6pm, Sundays 10am-5pm, or call 9974 5777 for more information.
