n Disabled people say they’re being left behind by...

Short-sighted city By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS A SPRINGVALE man who spoke out about being recently refused entry with his Guide Dog at a restaurant says people with a disability are not being listened to in Greater Dandenong. Twanny Farrugia, a long-standing community advocate, gained wide media coverage after he and his Guide Dog, Val, were refused entry from a restaurant in Clayton on 29 October. Last week, he said there were many more battles to fight but he had become “sick and tired” of he and other disability advocates being ignored on major works projects. He quit the independent Disability

Access South-East out of frustration because he felt the group wasn’t being listened to by the council, Places Victoria, Metro Trains and Dandenong Taxis on projects such as the redesign of Dandenong railway station and Revitalising Central Dandenong. “They first take action then consult with people with disabilities after the event. “It annoys the bejesus out of me. Why not just speak to people with a disability before construction? “To fix things later will cost them an arm and a leg. First, to fix the problem which could have been avoided had they consulted with people with disabilities.

“Second, if I fall due to inappropriate planning by the council, who provided the permits, I would have a strong case to sue the council for negligence.” He cited the problem of the train station’s lift opening up to a stairwell, despite forewarning by disability advocates, and the removal of a straight, direct line of pedestrian access from the station to Vision Australia’s offices on Princes Highway. Mr Farrugia said the council’s disability consultative framework was not as accessible as the defunct City of Springvale. “We had no major issues with the (Springvale) council because they con-

sulted with us often prior to providing any permits especially in the building area.” Disability Resources Centre co-ordinator Frank Hall-Bentick said there was “some sort of token consultation before the event but they don’t listen to what people say”. “Like many other places, if Greater Dandenong don’t like what they hear, they bring in an outside voice to tell them what they want to hear.” At the behest of councillor Matthew Kirwan, the council is expected to consider a report on establishing a disability reference group and disability advisory group this month. Greater Dandenong engineering

services director Bruce Rendall said consultation had taken place with groups and stakeholders prior, during and following the major works in central Dandenong. He said effort had been made to ensure the works were done in “a manner that meets the needs of all users”. Community services director Mark Doubleday said the council’s consultation with people with a disability included inviting individuals to consultative forums, regular e-newsletters providing and seeking feedback, and surveys. Twanny has his say, see Your Community Voice, Page 12

Sideshow alley makes a big splash Like is has for the past 141 years, the show rolled into Dandenong on the weekend. Crowd numbers were down due to the inclement weather, particularly on Saturday, but that didn’t dampen the delight on the faces of children trying to choose a showbag or dent the pride of those awarded Best in Show for their baking, craft or livestock. Armed with umbrellas Mariah Mackintosh (left) and Jessica King were among the many stallholders who kept smiling despite the at times challenging conditions.

Cr Sampey launches WorkCover action...

Albion Hotel

Toll of service

Memeti to lead city revival By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS JIM Memeti was showered with high praise from colleagues upon his election as Greater Dandenong’s mayor for the next 12 months. Cr Loi Truong was moved to declare Cr Memeti, who had previously served in the role in 2010, as the best mayor he had served under for the past six years. Even Cr John Kelly broke with his tradition of keeping silence at mayoral elections to pledge his “full support� for Cr Memeti. During the outpouring of goodwill, Cr Memeti was also described as the “perfect fit� to lead councillors into a landmark year, in which the $62 million municipal building project in Dandenong was due for completion. “I think it’s really good we’re getting someone who’s multicultural and is a successful businessman who knows what it’s like to build a business from the grass-roots [as mayor],� Cr Sean O’Reilly said. In response to his colleagues’ good will, Cr Memeti told the Journal he would try to work hard for them. “They’re all good people and they’re all passionate about the city. We will work together and get the best outcomes for the city.� He declared the recent acrimony over the council’s probe of Crs Maria Sampey and Peter Brown as “done and dusted�. Watched by a packed gallery of family and the city’s living treasures and inter-faith network leaders, Cr Memeti told the council he was humbled by the “incredible opportunities� opened to him since settling from Albania 38 years ago. “My most important role is to respect each and every one of you who make this city a better place�. He said it was a “lovely twist of fate� that he would open the municipal building project, having backed its initiation as mayor in 2010. His nominated key projects were the improvements in central Dandenong, including the revamped Af-

New Greater Dandenong mayor Jim Memeti with his wife Mary. ghan Bazaar, upgrades to the George Andrews Pavilion, the Springvale Gateway and Ross Reserve Urban Park projects and lobbying for the removal of the level crossing at Heatherton Road, Noble Park. He will continue working as a People of Australia Multicultural Ambassador. Cr Memeti thanked outgoing mayor Angela Long for her “tireless

Sharons

work� attending hundreds of functions and “serving this city well�. On a reflective note, Cr Roz Blades admitted to a tinge of sadness that Cr Memeti would be the last mayor elected at the Springvale Civic Centre. The civic centre will possibly be put to new use after the council moves camp to the new municipal building in Dandenong.

Kremlin call a red flag GREATER Dandenong councillor Peter Brown believes he may have struck upon a catchy name for the under-construction Municipal Building Project in Dandenong. In a pointed missive to fellow councillors and chief executive John Bennie, Cr Brown - who with Cr Maria Sampey was the subject of a confidential council probe - suggested The Kremlin. He said the “new big red council building� was “a place in which secret investigations can be undertaken by elected officials and their staff into the actions of other elected officials with whose work they disagree and do all they can in their power to keep the reports secret�. He signed off the email: “Comrade Brown�. Some have dubbed the site - which will be home to the state’s busiest library, cafes and a 30,000-square-metre public square - as the “Federation Square of the south-east�. A Journal reader last week suggested it looked like the doomed luxury liner the Costa Concordia. Cr Brown, who said he got a tetchy response from some of his colleagues, said he had a “great sense of pride� when he recently inspected the project. “It’s going to be a great asset to the community and add to the architectural improvement in Dandenong,� he said. “Considering the new Tax Office building and the Government Services building nearby, it’s going to be a lively area. “I think The Kremlin might stick for the wrong reasons.� What name should adorn the big red building?

fective voice for councillors on that board. I believe Cr Sampey [if reinstated] is going to scrutinise them and ask the hard questions.� Cr Sean O’Reilly, in supporting Cr Sampey’s position, said: “If we have a representative that has shown the interest, attended the meetings and ... many would agree she’s doing a good job, we should not be displacing people for anyone else.� No opposing councillors voiced their reasons for dumping Cr Sampey in favour of Cr John Kelly. Cr Sampey said newly-elected mayor Jim Memeti, who last week declared the matter “done and dusted�, would have to “unscramble� the investigation fallout.

1096158-RC41-13

A COUNCILLOR has taken stress leave and lodged a WorkCover claim against Greater Dandenong Council for the mental toll caused by a secret council investigation into her and a colleague. Cr Maria Sampey was absent from Thursday’s mayoral election, having taken medical leave until 14 November. During her absence, councillors dumped her as a non-voting council representative on Dandenong Market’s board - though Cr Sampey had indicated her desire to continue in the role. “This isn’t a bit of a break,� Cr Sampey said last week. “This is

ing debate over a botched footpath in Noble Park. The two accused councillors have fought for access to the investigation report, handed to the council in July. They were disappointed that fellow councillors had voted for access only to a version of the report edited by M+K Lawyers. In her and Cr Brown’s view, the report’s edits may be only ostensibly to protect complainants’ privacy. At Thursday’s meeting, Cr Matthew Kirwan moved for Cr Sampey’s retention as a “passionate, dedicated representative� on the Dandenong Market board. “The market board is doing a fantastic job but you need a very ef-

stress. It’s been going on and on and on. There doesn’t seem to be any let-up. “The doctor said I was so stressed, put in a WorkCover claim. I’m hoping WorkCover will investigate [council chief executive] John Bennie and [previous mayor] Angela Long - they haven’t looked after my well-being.� Since lodging the claim, Cr Sampey said the council has offered her access to psychological support services. The council did not comment on the matter before deadline. In May, Mr Bennie and Cr Long launched a confidential investigation into Crs Sampey and Peter Brown for allegedly causing council staff to feel hurt and distressed dur-

Milestone is an important Legacy THE Melbourne Legacy Widows Club and I share an important milestone - we are both 90 being ‘born’ in 1923. Melbourne Legacy was formed to help the widows and children of comrades who did not survive World War I. At the time people thought the Great War was the war to end all wars, but sadly that has not been the case. To this day Legacy is still caring for widows and children of veterans of subsequently conflicts. These include the World War II, Korea, Malaya, Vietnam, the Gulf War and numerous peace operations. While the need for dependant children has decreased in recent years, the ongoing care of widows has increased. Based in Birch Avenue, Dande-

MY VOICE A MOMENT WITH

MARG STORK nong North, the Dandenong West Gippsland Group of Melbourne Legacy covers a wide area from Warneet to Belgrave, Springvale to Nar Nar Goon and Lang Lang to Wantirna. Legacy members will no doubt pause today (Monday) at 11am for the annual Remembrance Day commemorations. The Dandenong Cranbourne branch of the RSL held its Remembrance Day service last Thursday at the Endeavour Hills War Memorial. Buying a poppy for Remembrance

Day contributes to Legacy’s important ongoing work. Another way you can support Legacy is through buying one of the special commemorative medallions which capture the spirit and essence of Legacy’s 90 years of service. The medallions feature the Louis Laumen sculpture, Widow and Children, and the symbol of the Australian Army bugler. A donation of $5 will go to Legacy from every sale of the silver medallion and commemorative pair. For further details go to www.legacy.com.au. LIVING TREASURES The immediate past mayor of the City of Greater Dandenong, councillor Angela Long, resplendent in her robes of office, was a striking hostess when she entertained the city’s Living Treasures at the annual dinner in October.

The treasures and their partners present included Heather Duggan, Merle Mitchell, Maria Erdeg, Val Wilson, Mary Borg, Albert and Patricia Blashki, Peter Jaddour, An Nguyen and myself. Cr Long said she was humbled when she looked about the room and acknowledged the outstanding contribution each of the Living Treasures had made to our great city. She said the Living Treasures had become mentors to other who have “followed in your footsteps”. “Your hope, heart and wisdom reinforced the belief that there is a better future for Greater Dandenong, one that encompasses equality, acceptance and opportunity.” Sadly, we lost Living Treasure Lorenzo Modica during the year.

LOOKING BACK 100 YEARS AGO 11 November 1913 The weather

50 YEARS AGO 11 November 1963 Gay pageantry for show opening

The weather of the previous week greatly discounted progress in the construction works under F. Godfrey, of the Dandenong Waters Trust. A few points of rain in Dandenong generally means a heavy fall in the ranges, and this is what has been experienced lately. With a fairly good spell of fine weather the laying of the pipes will be completed.

The Dandenong Show arena was a blaze of colour for the official opening by the State Governor (Sir Rohan Delacombe) at 2.30pm last Saturday. A mass parade of Boy Scouts, Cubs, Girl Guides, Brownies and marching girls splashed the green of the arena with red, blue, brown, green and purple under waving flags, providing an impressive touch of pageantry for Dandenong’s biggest and best show. His Excellency said he and his wife were

delighted to be at the show which provided the whole atmosphere of the country so close to Melbourne. In the last few years the population had increased by 4-fold and is now nearing the 30,000 mark; it is estimated that very soon it will be 53,000.

20 YEARS AGO 11 November 1993 High schol hit by staff cuts The State Government’s new staffing for schools would see Dandenong High School lose 6.5 teaching positions out of 81, the member for Dandenong Mr Pandazopoulos said

in parliament last week. He told parliament: “The school services 1100 students, and has already faced staff reductions as a result of action taken late last year by the State Government.” “It is one of the largest in the region and has a tradition of providing an excellent education”.

5 YEARS AGO 11 November 2008 Repairs go like clockwork The Dandenong Town Hall clock has been out of action for more than a week after its control mechanism reached the end of its working life.

Work has started on repairing the hand-made control mechanism, which dates back to 1934. Greater Dandenong Council’s cultural facilities director Paul Strefkerk said the clock had recently proved unreliable and resetting it had become a long cumbersome process. Repair work has already been carried out on the clock’s control mechanism this year, but the time has now come for the mechanism to be replaced. - Compiled by the Dandenong and District Historical Society

Man’s schoolgirl bail is revoked

High-rise residential

A MAN “infatuated” with a female school student shrugged his shoulders and raised his hands as if in disbelief after having his bail revoked for allegedly breaching orders not to contact the girl. Police prosecutor Anthony Ciardullo told Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on Monday that Ramin Mohseni had continually breached bail conditions and intervention orders imposed on 13 August. “The victim and her family have had to change how they live, including the victim changing her hair colour several times and the times she goes to school out of fear of Mohseni.” A police informant told the court that he had “very real concerns that the offending will continue”. “Even with time in police custody, he’s just infatuated with this young girl”. Mohseni had been on bail while awaiting sentencing for guilty pleas to his original charges. Sentencing had been deferred until 13 December pending a forensic mental health report on the accused. He was also facing charges of stalking and persistent breaching of an intervention orders arising from his alleged breaches in October. During that month, he’d visited the victim’s home, been spotted driving towards the home and being present while an associate rang the victim. His defence lawyer said Mohseni had been making “good progress” being treated by a counsellor twice a week for six weeks since being out on bail. He said there had been “no specific violence involved” though his client was “obsessional about this young girl”. Magistrate Pauline Spencer questioned how Mohseni could be monitored if he breached an intervention order, bail conditions and was under treatment. - CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS

A SECOND step in a trail that tells the story of how Springvale and its Enterprise Hostel welcomed 30,000 new arrivals with open arms was unveiled yesterday. The Trail of Significant Sites now has two links - the site of the former hostel and, as of yesterday (Sunday), the Springvale Aid and Advice Bureau. It is part of a story that shows how a harmonious community in Springvale grew out of the “extraordinary welcome” given to the hostel’s new arrivals in 1970-92, says Enterprise Hostel Community Group member Merle Mitchell. “It’s our belief that innovative approach built the harmonious community we enjoy today.” The bureau site, with a small rose garden, commemorates the dedicated work of bureau volunteers, particularly the late Sherron Dunbar who took hostel residents on orientation walks. The trail, when complete, will take in other sites visited by Dunbar’s walks - such as the former Springvale Primary School and the neighbourhood house. Ms Mitchell recalls Dunbar had a broad knowledge of world affairs so knew what migrant communities needed. But there were many others at the bureau who were just as committed, providing settlement services such as employment, welfare, advocacy and housing. Ms Mitchell said the trail scheme keeps growing into a project of national significance to show how a friendly welcome makes a difference for new arrivals. “These days, I think the organisation of how we provide the support to new arrivals leaves a lot to be desired.

Drugs grow charge A SPRINGVALE South man, 36, told police he was growing cannabis in his Heatherton Road home when they arrived to search the property on 31 October. Greater Dandenong Tasking Unit members executed a search warrant and discovered 24 cannabis plants growing hydroponically, a small amount of dried cannabis in the lounge room and a quantity of dried cannabis in plastic bags in another room. The man will answer charges of trafficking, cultivating, possessing and using cannabis.

who had publicly tackled Mr Bosman over the council’s haste to implement the new zones, said it was never going to be easy to move single-storey streets out of the highrise zones. “In terms of reducing the residential growth zone, it’s going to be up to the Minister of Planning. However I want the council to represent the needs of residents.” Last week Mr Guy said that Greater Dandenong struck a “healthy balance between residential growth and protection”. “This lays the foundation for a strong future for the City of Greater Dandenong, with an affordable housing supply and protection for appropriate areas,” he said. The amendment is expected to come into operation on 14 November.

IT SEEMS ‘Jason’ and the rest of the RACV call centre staff aren’t happy. Roadside assistance call centre staff walked from their switchboards for a protest rally against a pay offer at the RACV’s head office in Noble Park last Wednesday. Staff waved Australian Services Union banners, expecting the two-hour-plus rally would cause roadside assistance delays that morning. ASU Private Sector branch secretary Ingrid Stitt said staff were opposed to a 2.5 per cent pay increase in exchange for working an extra 100 minutes a week and cuts to redundancy payouts. She said RACV directors had been recently granted an 11 per cent pay rise - a “sickening” double-standard. “We hope today’s rally sends a clear message. “Staff are reluctant to create delays and disruptions for the public but after six months of negotiation, they had little choice.” Sandy McIntosh, general manager of RACV’s member contact centre, said service to RACV members continued with “minimal disruption”. He said employees had rejected a “fair and equitable” pay and conditions offer.

Under the changes, some residential streets in Dandenong North, Noble Park and Keysborough about 27 per cent of Greater Dandenong’s - are zoned as neighbourhood residential zones and protected from radical development. About 11 per cent are zoned for residential growth. The council’s city planning, design and amenity director Jody Bosman said the council was well positioned to implement the new zones because they closely aligned with its policies. It was the first step to ensuring “the planning controls affecting residential land in Greater Dandenong continue to be appropriate and balance the needs of the community and landowners,” he said. Councillor Matthew Kirwan,

PLANNING zones that allow highrise development in many of Dandenong’s most desirable residential streets are set to be gazetted by the state government. The planning amendment C175 allows for high and medium rise units and apartments in residential growth zones, including Dandenong’s northern streets. Within the zones building heights can increase by at least a storey, up from nine metres to 13.5 metres, and places of worship, shops and medical centres can be approved without a permit. Greater Dandenong Council has pushed for early implementation of the zones. Melinda Puglisi, who was part

of a grass-roots signature petition campaign to remove streets such as Grace Avenue, MacPherson Street, Power Street and Clow Street from the zone, said the council should have waited until it reviewed the zone boundaries and Dandenong’s neighbourhood character. The reviews, which are currently underway, won’t be open for public submissions until March or April next year. “The (zones implementation) should have been done as a holistic exercise, including the reviews. “I don’t know why it wasn’t done,” Ms Puglisi said. “After the review is done, there’s no promise that (Planning Minister) Matthew Guy will agree to subsequent changes to the zone boundaries.”

SOCIALLY SPEAKING Public kept informed COUNCILLOR Matthew Kirwan, since being elected to council, by asking the questions that he does in the public forum is ensuring that the public is being informed of the answers given by the officers to the questions he is asking. He is a very caring, community-minded person. Keep up the good work, Matthew. Cr Maria Sampey, via web.

Welcoming suburb DANDENONG is a special suburb with different needs as it’s welcoming most of the new arrivals in Victoria. We are blessed to have a councillor as patient as Cr Matthew Kirwan who listens to us all the

time. God bless your hard work. Lamis Albyati, via web.

Derelict school site THE former Keysborough Park Primary School site is another example of negligence by the Department of Education. The building is in such a state that vandals and vagrants have taken up residence. The play equipment is so dangerous. I brought it to the attention of the City of Greater Dandenong, only to be told it was not their responsibility as the land was owned by a government department. They however promised to investigate, but nothing has been done. Nothing is likely to be done until the site is rezoned and a dollar can be made and council can collect additional rates.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR More questions, please IT SEEMS that questions are taboo in Greater Dandenong. We should always ask questions and seek answers...they aren’t always forthcoming with the City of Greater Dandenong council. Our meetings are short compared to other councils. Cr Kirwan has the right to ask all the questions he deems appropriate. We elected him to do that, not just concur with council officers. More councillors should take a leaf out of his book. Maybe then his questions wouldn’t stand out as “unusual” practice. Kim Reid, Dandenong North.

Questions serve a purpose REGARDING your article in the Journal (It’s None of our business but....4 November) I can assure your readers I don’t just ask questions of council officers at public council meetings - I ask questions frequently in between meetings as well. However, there are many questions each fortnight that I think are of general public interest that is why I ask them in public. Council meetings, in my view, should be a forum for public

debate about the many issues affecting residents and the future of Greater Dandenong - asking questions at a public council meeting is one way, in my view, an important way, of doing that. Cr Matthew Kirwan

Nothing wrong to query REGARDING the comment about Councillor Kirwan’s questions, since when is it a bad thing for councillors or the public to be asking questions, either of other councillors or council department heads as considered appropriate by the person asking the questions? Is that not a major part of why we have a council? Noel Wyndom, Noble Park.

Public forum for posers WHAT’S wrong with Cr Matthew Kirwan asking 13 questions at a public council meeting? I would be more concerned if he wasn’t asking many questions. If he didn’t ask the questions in public, how would we know what the answers would be? Michael Sullivan, Springvale.

I believe that the site should be immediately fenced in to prevent injuries and additional building damage. Noble Gentleman, via web.

Better use of building IT’S about time authorities had a moratorium to see how these buildings can serve the community (re: School left in ruins, Dandenong Journal, 4 November). With a population explosion in our local area, these empty buildings would make great community centres, education centres for the disengaged students or be re-established as a school rather than build new ones. Let’s have an open public forum with health providers etc to brainstorm how these buildings can be of service again.

It is disheartening to see them left to just become derelict when so many people have been educated in those premises and parents proudly fund-raised to provide facilities. We have become a far too disposable society always wanting to replace things with something new. Cybil, via web.

Reveal facts and figures “MR CRAIG would not tell the Journal (School Left in ruins, Dandenong Journal, 4 November) what stage the process was at or the timeline on plans, but the council confirmed it had not been approached about the site.” Why do they always have to be so dubious about presenting real facts and figures? Rose Sulder, via web.

Heroes given their due place THE call is out for people who make a positive impact on Greater Dandenong. The city’s Australia Day Awards nominations are now open. Greater Dandenong thenmayor Angela Long said they recognised exceptional contribution, hard work and determination. “They provide a wonderful opportunity for us to celebrate

the often unsung members of our local community who work tirelessly to make our city a better place to live,” she said. Residents have until 5pm on Monday 25 November to nominate a young citizen (aged 25 or under), citizen, good neighbour or non-resident for a nod. A community panel will decide the winners, who’ll receive their awards during the Greater

Dandenong Australia Day celebrations on 26 January at the Drum Theatre in Dandenong. Celebrations will continue with an Australia Day concert at Dandenong Park.

Sport and Recreation Minister Hugh Delahunty announced the cash at Ross Reserve on Wednesday 6 November, with a further $750,000 from City of Greater Dandenong. The project will include a plaza, street course, bowl, snake run, vertical ramp, rails, beginner’s bank, seating, lighting, public art, paths and landscaping. “Skate parks provide an important place for young people to become part of the skating culture and test their skills,” Mr Delahunty said. “This project will deliver top skating facilities in Noble Park, providing a great base to establish development programs and host youth and family events. “The new skate park will complement the other quality sports facilities at the reserve, such as the Noble Park Aquatic Centre, and inject new life into

Murder charge By CASEY NEILL THE haunting sounds of wailing women in mourning filled Marna Court, Noble Park, last Tuesday as news of a 31-yearold mother of four’s death reached her family and friends. Homicide Squad detectives later that day charged Doveton man Bona Lual, 36, with murder. They allege he killed his former partner in her home while her children, aged two to 12, slept nearby. “It’s hard to know what to do to make people that are that upset at ease,” Homicide Squad Detective Senior Sergeant Stephen McIntyre said of the women gathering in the home’s front yard. “There’s no words that are going to make it better.” Paramedics found the body following a triple-zero call about 2am. “The call was that a woman had been hurt at this location,” Sen Sgt McIntyre said.

victorian compensation lawyers

Friends and family grieve outside the Marna Court home where a woman died on Tuesday. 109538 Picture: CASEY NEILL “Simultaneously to that phone call being made, a man, who we believe is the man who made the phone call, attended at the Dandenong police station and surrendered himself to police.” Lual was remanded at an out of sessions hearing at Dandenong Police Station on Tuesday and the following day faced an administrative hearing at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court. A magistrate ordered him to submit to DNA tests and again

remanded him. He’s to reappear for a committal mention in February. Neighbours told the Journal that the woman kept to herself and the street was “very quiet”. Investigators believe Lual and the deceased were at a party at a hall in Dandenong North earlier in the night and want to speak to anyone who might have seen them. Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 with any information.

Cops catch counterfeiters FEDERAL police seized more than 15,000 suspected counterfeit DVDs and 53 DVD burners from a Springvale business last Thursday. They charged a 34-year-old Clayton man on 7 November following a nine-month investigation into the business which they allege had been manufacturing and selling pirated DVDs worth about $300,000 a year. Australian Federal Police (AFP) Detective Superintendent

Monday, 11 November, 2013 Page 11

Ian Bate said the large-scale counterfeit DVD business was making a substantial profit each year through copyright theft. “The AFP takes these largescale cases of copyright theft very seriously and this should be a warning to others who may be manufacturing and selling counterfeit goods that you are likely to get caught out,” he said. The man will answer one count each of commercial-scale infringement prejudicing copy-

right owner, making infringing copy commercially, selling or hiring out infringing copy, possessing infringing copy for commerce, and making or possessing a device for making infringing copy. AFP also charged him with dealing with money or property from proceeds of crime worth $100,000 or more. The maximum penalty for these offences is five years’ imprisonment.

MELBOURNE Cup Eve at Dandenong Magistrates’ Court is more of a canter than a gallop. A week before, the courts were bursting with action, lawyers complaining of the backlog and their clients languishing in police cells. Last Monday, the court list was brief, prosecutors and magistrates twiddling thumbs and there was barely a barrister to be found. Coincidence, or just a Cup Day weekend aberration?

IT WAS the straw that broke the camel’s back when my friend, my Guide Dog Val and myself were refused entry to a Chinese restaurant in Clayton on 29 October. Most of the time when initially refused entry, I like to explain about my Guide Dog and what she does for me. Often that resolves the issue. Occasionally, I also need to show my Guide Dog Vic ID card which had my details and a message from the Attorney-General explaining that it is an offence not to allow access to Guide Dogs which overrides the Health Act. I’m keen to make it clear why we use these dogs. My Guide Dog is not a pet. She’s my lifeline. My vision is like looking through a drinking straw except sometimes the straw is blocked. I’d be isolated inside my home without Val. I’m quite effective at self-advocacy since I’ve been heavily involved in disability and social issues for many years. I was a member of the City of Springvale’s proactive Disability Action Group (now defunct) which comprised people with disabilities, councillors and council workers. We had no major issues with the council because they consulted with us often prior to providing any permits. After the amalgamation of

DANDENONG’S Heritage Hill is set to star on the small screen. The site was closed on Thursday 7 November for filming for ABC series The Doctor Blake Murder Mysteries starring Craig McLachlan in the title role. Its interpretive kitchen was used as a feature location.

VOICE Twanny Farrugia

Springvale and Dandenong councils, sadly the group was disbanded. The replacement disability consultative framework at Greater Dandenong Council is not as accessible. At the moment, the only voice for people with disabilities that I am aware of in Greater Dandenong is the Disability Action South-East (auspiced by the Disability Resource Centre). I used to be on the DAS committee but I’m not taking part anymore. We have tried advocating to Places Victoria, the council, Metro Trains and Dandenong Taxis about Dandenong railway station and the Revitalising Central Dandenong project. I got sick and tired of them not listening to us. They first take action then consult with people with disabilities after the event. Since the 1970s I have been advocating with other individuals and groups. It’s taken a long time and a lot of hard work to move past tokenism, to get legislative change so that we are not treated as second class citizens. There has been progress with various legislation passed (Disability Discrimination Act 1992 just to mention one). We have got the National Disability Insurance Scheme being rolled out - positive stuff! However, we have policy-makers who have no knowledge of disabilities or chronic illness. They don’t consult with us. If they did, a lot of access issues and money could be resolved and saved prior to them becoming problems. I’m always the optimist. However, what saddens me is we can learn from our past history to improve on this but we don’t learn from our past.

A MAGISTRATE and police prosecutor struggled to keep straight faces as the case of an Easter egg thief was laid out in Dandenong

Magistrates’ Court last week. The accused pleaded guilty to stealing two cloth bags, which she filled with her $95.30 bounty of Easter eggs and chocolates as festive gifts for her son. “Are there any submissions for the prosecution...on behalf of the Easter Bunny?” the magistrate said.

Decades of shining bright By CASEY NEILL

Senior school student Aaron performs his own creative dance at the Saturday night celebrations.

EMERSON School has been giving kids a chance to shine since 1973. The Dandenong school celebrated its 40th anniversary with a dinner dance and fun fair on 1 and 2 November. Junior and senior campus principal Dianne Wright said the school for pupils with mild intellectual disabilities was education department bureaucrat Les Emerson’s vision. “Every kid deserves an opportunity,” she said. Ms Wright said the concept was to support kids languishing at the bottom of their class. “It was an opportunity for

those kids to shine,” she said. “Our school is the difference between being a recluse from society and actually giving back to society. “Our aim is for our students to be gainfully employed.” The school started with 144 pupils and now has more than 410. “I’ve been there since 1985,” Ms Wright said. “I was only going to stay for a few years. I chose it because my mum lived nearby at the time.” She planned to stay until her toddler son started primary school. “Now Bradley’s 31 and I’m still here,” she said.

“I really believe that what we do here makes a difference to the lives of the kids we have.” Ms Wright said the school had a fantastic weekend of celebration. “The weather was perfect and there were some very special moments as staff and students from over the four decades reminisced about times gone by,” she said. “We had over 200 people attend the gala dinner dance on Friday and another 300 people attending open day.” Actor Elida Brereton, principal on television series Summer Heights High, was the guest speaker at the dinner, which brought together former students, staff and parents.

IN BRIEF Car bullet hole probed

The final countdown to digital-only TV has begun!

A MYSTERY bullet hole in a car in Dandenong South has police appealing for witnesses. The vehicle was parked outside a Kirkham Road home on Sunday 3 October when someone shot its driver’s side front door with an unknown firearm. The owner found the damage to the blue 1991 Honda Civic the following afternoon. Police attended and are investigating. Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 with any information.

Rudely surprised A SPRINGVALE South man returned home to find a burglar inside his Springvale Road home on 3 November. The thief fled over neighbouring fences, but the police canine unit tracked him down. Police arrested and charged the 22-year-old Noble Park man, who they found carrying capsicum spray. He was remanded to appear in court at a later date.

Melbourne and surrounding areas switch on 10 December 2013* The analog TV switch off is happening on 10 December 2013* – and there’s no turning back. After this date you won’t see anything if you’re not ready for digital-only TV.

What do I have to do? Remember, to keep watching free-to-air TV shows, you’ll need either: • one set-top box or a digital TV recorder for each analog TV you use; or • a new TV with a built-in digital tuner. Most importantly, you do not have to buy a new TV if you do not want to. Most antennas and cabling should work after the digital switchover. However, if you have any concerns about your reception, you may consider asking an endorsed Antenna Installer to check your antenna and cabling. If you have any other questions, or to find your nearest endorsed Antenna Installer, visit our website or call the Digital Ready Information Line.

Don’t put it off any longer. Get ready for digital TV today.

LOT 2 WOODLEIGH ST HELIER ROAD WOODLEIGH

Auction season is in full swing with a record number of auctions held last weekend. The REIV offers a few tips for potential buyers on bidding at auction. Before the auction, ensure that you have a plan including knowing when you intend to commence bidding and at what price point you should stop. Ensure you arrive early and make a final inspection of the property. You can check the contract of sale, vendor’s statement, and auction rules which should all be on display for at least 30 minutes before the auction commences. If you have questions about the auction rules, ask the agent in attendance. Be sure to position yourself where you can see the auctioneer and where they can see and hear you. Make bids clear by announcing them and raising your hand. The auctioneer should announce if the property is “on the market” if the owner’s reserve price has been reached. If the reserve price isn’t reached, the property will be passed in to the highest bidder, or on a vendor bid. If it is passed in, the owner must first negotiate with the highest bidder for the purchase of the property. So if the auctioneer announces that the property is going to be passed in, it is a good strategy at this point to make sure you are the highest bidder to secure this option to negotiate with the owner. Once the property’s passed in, it is too late. To find out more, visit www.reiv. com.au - Enzo Raimondo CEO Real Estate Institute of Victoria

BUSINESS SOUTH-EAST Minister’s stamp of approval By CASEY NEILL

Staff refuse to stay down By CASEY NEILL “THE phoenix has already risen out of the ashes and I see nothing but a great future ahead.” This was the message from QEP president Len Gould to workers at the flooring supplier’s Australian headquarters last Wednesday. Fire gutted its warehouse in Dunlopillo Drive, Dandenong South, on 19 September in a spectacular plume of black smoke. The company plans to return once the premises is rebuilt but has already found a temporary home in Keysborough and is on its way back to full strength. “It’s remarkable what progress has been made,” Mr Gould said. “I appreciate the tremendous, inspiring courage that you’ve shown in rebuilding this business. “I realise that conditions have not been great. Hours are messed up, days are messed up, conditions are cramped. “I want you to know that there’s a lot of people who care about you guys, and I’m one of them.” Mr Gould’s father Lewis started the company in his garage in 1979 and re-

More than 100 firefighters battled to control the blaze. Picture: KEITH PAKENHAM - CFA mains the CEO today. “It took two years to get out of the garage and hire one person,” he said. “Today there’s over 900 of us at 33 locations around the world. “It’s important to me that you realise that you’re part of a larger entity. “When this terrible fire took place, those people were reaching out. “A warehouse worker in the south of France offered to forgo his pay so that that money could come here to help fund this new office.” Mr Gould said his father loved to push his buttons.

“After we had the monthly numbers come in for October his comment to me was ’are you sure there was a fire in Australia?’,” he said. “It’s remarkable what you guys have put out the door, it really is.” He led a raucous “give me a Q, give me an E, give me a P” chant and gifted a “small financial token of appreciation” from the USA to each worker. The afternoon tea also featured a video package, dubbed Out of the Ashes, with images and footage of billowing smoke and flames, the rubble, clean-up and fitting out the new warehouse and office. QEP Australia managing director Bruce Maclaren was at the factory when the fire took hold. “We’ve been through a fairly traumatic event over the last five or six weeks,” he said. “It’s been a challenge but we’ve all come out the other side bigger and better. “We’re not necessarily over the hump entirely yet but we’re certainly well on the way. “About mid-January we should be back to normal trading.”

GREATER Dandenong workplaces have achieved their best safety performance in more than a decade. WorkCover figures released last week showed there were 1539 claims in the municipality in 2012’13 - the lowest since 2001-’02 and an 11 per cent drop from 2003-’04. Claims from the area’s manufacturing sector dropped to 583 in 2012-’13, down 24 per cent from 2003-’04. Assistant Treasurer Gordon Rich-Phillips said awareness of workplace safety was one of the big drivers behind the drop in claims during a tour of the Dandenong South Bombardier rail vehicle production site last Thursday. “It’s encouraging to see that employers and employees in the city are working together to make safety their number one priority,” he said. WorkSafe chief executive Denise Cosgrove also visited Bombardier. She said embedding safety into workplace culture rather than making it an add-on was important, as was eliminating risks completely rather than working around them. “The other thing is the sense that people feel like they can speak up if they see an issue,” she said. Bombardier managing director Rene Lalande said the company’s philosophy was that every accident was preventable.

“We don’t want to disassociate health and safety from anything else we do,” he said. “It’s part of the business - as important as delivering a train or satisfying a customer or delivering quality. “Health and safety is everyone’s responsibility.” Bombardier’s Dandenong South workforce in 24 months has grown from 54 blue-collar workers to about 200. “We still see growth ahead of us,” Mr Lalande said. Bombardier site director Ian Evans said this growth was a safety challenge, and the company had to work hard to make its attitude to safety the predominant culture. It looked to a number of programs within the industry for inspiration and came up with the Be Wise report card. Workers identify potential risks and report them to their health and safety representative, who takes them to the health and safety committee for action. The reps also work with a different group within the factory once a month to encourage new ideas. “The more important thing is we see now the guys are pro-actively saying ‘this isn’t really a concern, but it’s not the right way of doing it’,” Mr Evans said.

Show for the whole family By NARELLE COULTER WHEN Dandenong Show secretary Lynne Ferris escaped her desk in the administration building for half an hour to take a quick peek at the event she had spent months organising, she wasn’t disappointed. “I haven’t seen the actual show in 10 years,” she joked, as she darted around Greaves Reserve. It wasn’t the best show ever. The overcast skies and intermittent rain on Saturday put paid to that. But there were enough families wandering among the attractions and teenagers screaming as they were hurled skyward on gravity-defying carnival rides to satisfy the show secretary. “It was disappointing that there weren’t a few more people, but the mood was good so in all it was a reasonably successful show. The crowd was better on Sunday so I was pleased with that. “One of the show bag ladies stopped me on Saturday and said that despite the weather people were throwing money at her, which was great to hear. The showbag sellers are charities or community organisations so a percentage of what they sell goes back to the community.” Lynne’s mother, Phyllis Allan, was at the show also, her life member of the Dandenong Agricultural Society badge pinned to her coat. Phyllis and husband Graham, long time Keysborough residents, showed cattle for many years at Dandenong. Phyllis enjoys returning each year to catch up with old friends. On Saturday, two further generations of the Allan family accompanied her, grand-daughter Alisha Keyzer and great-grandson Jude. “There are lots of young kids this year,” observed Alisha. “I think it’s great that there are so many activities for the kids such as the craft activities and

cake decorating. It gets the kids involved. “And there is also a good cross section of food this year, lots of choice.” Another Dandenong Show stalwart, Donald Simpson, who lived in Noble Park for most of his 90 years, wandered through the poultry pavilion for, “something to do for the afternoon”. A member of the Oakleigh District Poultry Society, Mr Simpson entered birds in the Dandenong Show for decades from the early 50s. He gently lifts the door on the cage of the Champion Bird in Show bending down for a closer look at the Columbian Wyandotte bantam, entered by Boolarra breeder Debbie Sigmund. “I had Rhode Island Reds, bantams, moderns, lots of different colours. I judged several times and used to help put up the pens. The entries used to fill the other hall as well.” This year the bird entries comprised two rows of cages. “We used to have 40 breeders within four kilometres in Dandenong. Now there is only one, John Betts. Breeding and the interest in breeding is not around now.” He hopes the hobby will be kept alive by young enthusiasts like eight-year-old Bailey Hiscock, of Carrum Downs, who won junior champion with his Langshan, ‘Josie’. The Sclim family live minutes from Greaves Reserve and took their young daughters for an afternoon out at the show. Medina, six, liked the dodgem cars and the “beautiful cakes”. “It’s a good family day out,” said dad Hamzic. The hundreds of other families who enjoyed the attractions on offer over the weekend, including the spectacular fireworks Saturday night, would surely agree.

BUSINESS PROFILE

Lawyers moving in VICTORIAN Compensation Lawyers are making a big move - literally, opening its new branch office in Dandenong CBD. Founder and principal Sam Bektas said he expected the new address will benefit residents in Dandenong and surrounding areas who are seeking successful and efficient, no-win, no-fee legal representation in their fight for compensation. Located at the corner of Princes Highway and Stud Road, above the Dandenong Medical Centre, the revitalised new space reflects the spe-

cialised law firm’s continued growth and development. In addition to the team at VCL’s Melbourne office, VCL is aiming to create more local employment opportunities and bring practitioners and their clients closer together. “VCL accepts cases on a no win no fee basis, we help people in their fight by funding the expenses like reports required for their claims to proceed and we work hard to ensure maximum outcomes in an efficient timeframe,” Mr Bektas said. “We do not bill above court scales

and we do not tie clients to finance agreements.” Branch manager Cathy Symes, a former nurse, agrees. “I love a challenge and look forward to helping injured people in the local area.” According to Mr Bektas, who founded the firm in May 2007, the new branch is a reflection of VCL’s goal of improving access to justice and accessibility for its clients. He commends his team who have worked hard, in the midst of all manner of challenges, in order to grow

and evolve the practice that they uphold. Mr Bektas said: “Victorian Compensation Lawyers (VCL) is not the oldest, largest or most connected firm in the state, and in many ways we are still the new kid on the block. “Like many of our clients who have arrived in Australia as outsiders, we must work harder to be treated equally.” Victorian Compensation Lawyers Dandenong is located at Level 1, No. 176 Lonsdale Street.

JACQUELINE Laaksonen, Village manager of Saffron Grove Retirement Village in Hallam, nominated Ray Stewart for the Healthy and Active Living Award, Victorian Senior of the Year Awards, this year. Jacqueline started working at Saffron Grove Retirement Village in October 2012. “The community spirit here is something I continue to enjoy and brag about, to whomever will listen – contractors, staff, visitors, prospective residents and the local business community.” Ray and Glenys Stewart moved to Saffron Grove in August 2010. In the early development of village life, a hired professional facilitated exercises for health and fitness. However, numbers diminished over time, perhaps due to the ‘advanced’ schedule of the classes. So, Ray stepped in and things greatly improved. Attendance increased and, fun and laughter became part of the sessions. He conveyed to all residents that, he would be helping them out as a friend and, that they were not official exercise classes. They would just be a group of friends catching up, each exercising to their own individual abilities. Ray uses exercises recommended by the Arthritis Foundation. Ray has an ‘unassuming’ high profile within the village

Ray Stewart, Marilyn Higgins and Pat Smith. and recently became the president of the Residents’ Social Club Committee. He is easygoing and is very approachable. Since he took over the exercise group, he has made a great difference to village community well-being. Residents who previously did not attend, have joined the group and are experiencing the benefits of gentle exercise.

Ray’s positive attitude is contagious. He is an inspiration to all. Come along for a tour of the village and view the beautifully appointed display units. Meet some of the lovely residents, including Ray – you will be amazed. Saffron Grove Retirement Village is at 8 Saffron Drive, Hallam. Telephone 8795 7380.

The new residential zones also provide greater certainty about where different housing types and densities will be located.

In March/April 2014, Council will be seeking input from the community to assist with tailoring planning controls to local circumstances.

Ranges from first to Hurst By JARROD POTTER A CAPITAL charge from Canberra stars Natalie Hurst and Abby Bishop was enough to knock off Dandenong by eight points on Saturday night. Brushing off last week’s loss to the Rangers at home, Canberra travelled to Dandenong on Saturday night with ferocious intent. Attacking the basket at will, shooting with flagrant disregard for Dandenong’s defence, Capitals guard Hurst proved unstoppable as Leilani Mitchell (13pts, 4ast) tried to go toe-to-toe with the Capitals’ scoring machine. Hurst drilled 31 points and dished off 10 assists to carry the Capitals to the 93-85 victory over Dandenong. The Rangers’ roster rotated to accommodate the lofty challenge of defending Capitals’ tall-trio Abby Bishop (22pts, 15reb), Alex Bunton (6pts, 6reb) and former Dandenong Ranger Carley Mijovic (12pts, 6reb). A back-and-forth first half had Canberra ahead mostly as Mijovic drilled a three-pointer on the half-time buzzer to earn a 27-24 lead. Dandenong drew the lead on occasion after the main break - holding onto it throughout most of the third quarter - but Canberra rallied to finish the term ahead at the final break 51-47. Dandenong’s endeavour fell short in the final term, after edging back into the match to bring a 12-point gap back down to five. Fouling out were Alice Kunek (18pts) and Brigitte Ardossi (2pts, 5reb) to hurt the Rangers’ rotations down the final stretch, but the remaining roster persevered to squeeze the margin back down to five. Jenna O’Hea toiled all night for her usual output - hitting 12-21 from the field to register 26 points and also take seven rebounds, while Kayla Pedersen stood tall against Bishop and earned 17 points and 12 rebounds. “Still trying to work out why every single team in the league feels they can shoot the ball as freely as they can against us,” Dandenong coach Mark Wright said. “You’ve got to hand it to Canberra, they shot the hell out of it and we thought we were playing reasonable but they made a tremendous percentage, 47 per cent from the field and 50 per cent from the three-point line, that’s a good night out.”

Australian Opals Olympic team mates Abby Bishop and Jenna O’Hea vie for the ground ball in Canberra’s eight-point win over Dandenong. 109835 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS Dandenong has conceded five scores over 75 points from its eight matches so far this season and Wright admits that defensive laxness isn’t good enough. “Not sure if we’ve given them encouragement or if they all rose to the occasion but it’s happened

to us way too often where teams score too many points against us, so it can’t be all luck,” Wright said. “We need to address that.” With an injury to Aimie Clydesdale (finger) and the unavailability of Rebecca Mercer, Dan-

denong rising star Rachel Antoniadou was placed onto the active roster, but didn’t gain court time in her first outing in WNBL Rangers colours. Dandenong will face Logan at home on Friday night before flying up to New South Wales to face Sydney Uni Flames on Saturday night.

Towering ambition for Aira

Ryan a Hall of Famer

By JARROD POTTER

By JARROD POTTER

STEP-BY-STEP, flight-by-flight, Keysborough’s Aira Abarra hopes to knock off the Eureka Climb at the Eureka Tower. Abarra, 19, will tackle the Eureka Climb on Sunday morning - attempting to summit the 1,642-steps to the top of the Melbourne’s skyscraper. Running alongside training partner and friend Leroy McLennan also participating, Abarra hopes to knock off the run without stopping to walk in any section of the climb. “Getting through it without having a walking break is what I’m going for, but there isn’t really a set time I’m aiming to finish in,” Abarra said. “Should be interesting.” Instead of taking the clanking elevators inside Monash University’s Menzies Building on the Clayton campus, Abarra has taken to walking the flights of stairs in preparation for the Eureka Climb, on top of her regular running sessions. “It was just a bit of a novelty event - I’m not really a runner, I usually just do little events like five or 10 kilometres and this is a lot more of a challenge,” Abarra said. “I haven’t been to the Eureka Tower before, but this should be fun.” All eyes will be on the Victorias Emergency Service Challenge - with defending champions Melbourne Fire Brigade aiming for back-to-back wins over Ambulance Services and Victoria Police. Last year’s Eureka Climb raised over $308,000 for disadvantaged young people at home and abroad for the event’s charity partners Whitelion and Interplast Australia and New Zealand.

BASKETBALL’S greatest honour will be awarded to long-serving Dandenong Basketball Association (DBA) president Charles Ryan - with the administrator and basketball advocate inducted into the Australian Basketball Hall of Fame. Ryan - who passed away in 2011 following a two-year battle with lymphoma - will be inducted as a contributor to the Hall of Fame, earning his place alongside the greats of the game for his tireless work. Ryan was a founding member of the National Wheelchair Basketball League. The best wheelchair athletes in the country win the Charles Ryan Memorial Trophy in honour of his contributions to the sport. Throughout his tenure as DBA president, Ryan made women’s basketball a priority at Dandenong and helped push his beloved Rangers into the powerhouse they are today. “You can’t walk around the Dandenong Stadium or talk to anyone involved with the DBA without getting an understanding of the leadership qualities Charles Ryan possessed,” DBA CEO Da-

vid Graham said. “He was instrumental in the success the Dandenong Stadium now enjoys and also in the development of many players, coaches and administrators at the DBA.” Basketball Australia’s recognition of this via Charles’s Hall of Fame induction is a great testament to the man.” Current DBA president Lou Godfrey said Ryan’s passion helped guide a number of players on the path towards national representation - a credit to his ability to focus and train the next generation of basketball champions. “Charles Ryan left a great legacy to basketball in Australia during his life,” Godfrey said. “No one was more dedicated to working with young players teaching them the skills of the game. “Many went on to play for the Boomers and the Opals - he was a tenacious coach who always insisted on players doing what was right for the team. “Charles never played favourites and helped many players achieve their dreams.” The Class of 2013 Australian Basketball Hall of Fame induction will be held on Thursday 21 November.

Bloods’ pressure on the rise By JARROD POTTER SPRINGVALE SOUTH carved through the Narre Warren (142) order to push into third on the DDCA Turf 1 ladder.

Springvale South v Narre Warren The Bloods had the runs on the board to make the Magpies’ job seemingly impossible - with 324 runs at its disposal, Springvale South set aggressive fields and kept the pressure up to the Narre bats. That pressure paid early dividends - Tim Ford (4/33) had a field day as he earned four wickets including the prized scalp of Narre skipper Michael Nell (15). With good new ball support from Yoshan Kumara (2/35), the pair burned through the first five Magpies with relative ease before some resistance and backbone was shown by Kaushalya Weeraratne (28), Shane Simpson (20) and the wicketkeeper Ben Swift (36). Their resistance was short-lived as Nathan King (1/45), Ford and Aaron Morrison (2/8) cleaned them up to push the Bloods up the ladder before a challenging clash with Parkfield this round.

Above: Springvale South’s Yoshan Perera goes for an appeal. 109832

Mordialloc v North Dandenong Mordialloc (184) made North Dandenong (128 and 40) hurt in the worst way imaginable as the visitors failed to notched the 56 runs necessary to avoid an innings defeat. Mordialloc pushed ahead on Saturday afternoon as Leon Kennedy (86) smashed anything that came near him to secure first innings points. North Dandenong would’ve been pleased with keeping Mordialloc under 200, with Crispin Gomez (2/9), Michael De Kauwe (2/36) and Shane Clark (2/36) achieving the best figures. From there the afternoon turned into a North Dandenong nightmare as 56 became mountainous and impossible

Clark (13) was the leading scorer with the rest of the order failing to reach double figures or even defend their own wicket. Chathura Athukorala (4/13) and Monto Perera (5/12) were impossible to play and ran through the order without any hesitation or resistance. It is North Dandenong’s second outright defeat of the season.

Berwick v Coomoora Coomoora (6/243) didn’t keel

over in response to Berwick’s (6/383) whopping first innings total and will take a lot away from the clash despite the loss. Losing Ollie Ashford (7) and Thanura Halambage (10) early, the Kangaroos steadied through Rahoul Pankhania (83) who was superb in bludgeoning the Bears’ attack about Arch Brown Reserve. Pankhania found solid support through Rob Johnston (19), adding 60 for the third wicket and

50 with captain Paul Hill (43) before his pegs were rearranged by Berwick rising-star spinner Tanner Stanton (1/40). Hill kept on with the chase and had Jake D’Atri (42) join the party with the pair putting together a 67-run partnership before both fell with the score on 219 as Cory Bevan (3/34) picked up the pair consecutively. Lance Baptist (10no) and Jason Bacic (10no) ensured Coomoora would head back to the

Big bang Fernando By JARROD POTTER HONOURS were split on the first day of Noble Park (0/23) facing Altona (182) in a VSDCA East/West First XI battle to stay in the top six. Altona started strongly with Tim Collins (65) and Peter Herrick (26) notching 92 for the first wicket, before Marasinghe Perera (2/30) shattered the partnership. Collins followed soon after, dollying the simplest of caught-and-bowled chances back to Anthony Salomon (1/34) to start the Altona wobbles. A 43-run stand from Aaron Maynard (29) and Lee Elmore (19) was the last sizeable addition in tandem to the Altona total as Mevan Fernando (5/25) got fired up.

Fernando found the middle and lower order asleep at the crease as he worked his way through the batting card - snaring his first fivewicket haul in the VSDCA to go along with a half-century forged earlier this season to start his year with a bang. Perera iced the cake, getting Trent Smith (0) - surprisingly stumped for a duck with some nimble glovework by Dirk Vandergert - helping dismiss Altona for the moderate total of 182. A cautious response from Noble Park left the game well poised for next week - captain Dean Edmunds (16no) and Jake Bradshaw (6no) saw off the new ball and survived 13 overs to leave 159 to chase on Saturday.

sheds with wickets in hand and in most circumstances, a match-winning total against their name. Ryan Crawford (2/16) snared a couple of wickets and Jarrod Goodes (0/67) was economical from his 27 overs of hard graft.

Xylia something special

SPRING FEVER

By MICHAEL FLOYD XYLIA Allen strengthened her claim as Australia’s fastest greyhound with a stunning all-theway win in the Group 3 Macro Meats Shootout at Sandown Park last Thursday night. “It was pretty much over at box rise,” said handler Joe Briffa after the five-time Group race winner landed two lengths in front of the stellar field. “Her first two sectional times were the best she’s ever gone, and the space she got in the four dog field really suited her.” Running a dazzling first split of 4.97, Xylia Allen led Banjo Boy by three lengths down the back straight, extending to five lengths approaching the final turn before Dyna Nalin unleashed a devastating finishing burst to reduce the margin to two lengths at the line. Xylia Allen is the first female greyhound to win the Macro Meats Shootout in 15 editions of the event, and her winning time of 29.07 seconds was a new race record. Ominously, Briffa believes we’re yet to see the best of the daughter of former Meadows track record holder Turanza Bale. “When we first trialled her at Geelong her (then) trainer Graeme Bate said ‘we’ve got something special here.’ She’s still learning, but the penny is starting to drop now. You look at the sectionals she can run - she’s just unbelievable - I think she’ll be the first greyhound to earn $1 million.” The win was the 19th from 46 starts and the $50,000 winner’s cheque took Xylia Allen’s career prize money to $454,125. Next on the agenda for the Jenny Hunt trained

Fitting conclusion

Xylia Allen flew around Sandown Park on Thursday night to claim the Group 3 Macro Meats Picture: SUPPLIED Shootout. 109836 superstar is the world’s richest greyhound race and the second leg of Sandown’s $1million Triple Crown, the TAB Melbourne Cup. “We’ll keep her fresh for the heats next Thursday... if she comes out the way she did tonight...

she could break the track record.” The heats of the $500,000 TAB Melbourne Cup will be run this Thursday night with the winner of each heat progressing through to the final the following Thursday.

When enough... just isn’t enough By JARROD POTTER

Nathan Lambden claimed a wicket on a sorry day of affairs for Dandenong in its two-dayer against Essendon. 108403 Picture: JARROD POTTER

QUITE a lot wasn’t enough for Dandenong, with Essendon (3/296) steamrolling the Panthers and chasing down a near-triple century total with 12 overs to spare. Following Brett Forsyth’s stellar 153 last week, Essendon decided to pile on the runs this time around as Dandenong struggled to break partnerships. Essendon worked its way into the innings via a 67-run opening stand from captain Ben MacRae (63) and Aaron Shellie (55). Shellie fell to James Nanopoulos (1/52), but all that did was bring Aaron Ayre (82) to the crease, who belted the Panthers about the field as he compiled 103 runs with the skip-

per. Ayre smashed his way to his half-century before MacRae finally succumbed to Dandenong as James Wilcock (1/67) held onto a caught-and-bowled. One Essendon smashing halfcenturion dismissed only replaced him with another - this time Solomon Mire (74no) who partnered with Ayre for 79 runs and knocked in the final 50 alongside James Seymour (11no) to guide Essendon to a comfortable victory. Nathan Lambden (1/52) was the only other Panther to grab a wicket in the dismal outing. Dandenong will need to brush aside its poor 1-1-4 start to the season when the Panthers hosts Prahran in a two-dayer at Shepley Oval.

WHAT’S ON this week

ONE of the most memorable Melbourne Spring Racing Carnivals concludes with the running of Saturday’s Group 2 $351,000 Sportingbet Sandown Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield. Sportingbet Sandown Guineas Day concludes the world’s greatest racing carnival after the Melbourne Racing Club opened with the BECK Caulfield Guineas on October 12, topped off by one of the best Emirates Melbourne Cups seen in its 153 years. Australia’s ‘First Lady of Racing’, Gai Waterhouse had her first win in the great race, when Fiorente fought to the line under the superb riding of Damien Oliver who, became the first jockey to win an Australian ‘major’ (Caulfield Cup/Melbourne Cup/Cox Plate or Golden Slipper Stakes) 10 times. Saturday’s super meeting features the $351,000 Group 2 Sportingbet Sandown Guineas (1600m), the $351,000 Group 2 Deadly Design Zipping Classic (2400m), the $150,750 Group 3 Eclipse Stakes (1800m), the Group 3 TMB Printing Kevin Heffernan Stakes (1200m), the Group 3 $150,750 Sandown Stakes (1400m) and the Group 3 Le Pine Funerals Summoned Stakes (1600m). Two Group 2 events, four Group 3 races and three Listed events. Entries do not close until today (Monday) but fields are sure to be strong as this is a very popular meeting. The Sportingbet Sandown Guineas has been the race of future champions with the likes of Always There, Adbul, Taj Rossi, So Called, Galleon and Durbridge having won and Storm Ruler, Analight, Denise’s Joy and the mighty Saintly being placed. It has proven a popular event for horses coming through the Carbine Club Stakes at Flemington on Derby Day. Peter Snowden is one trainer who regularly targets the race and has won three times since 2008 including last year with Tatra. His Carbine Club Stakes winner, Paximadia, is likely to be a top chance with the runner-up Hucklebuck a top contender. Last year Tanby gave Lloyd Williams his fifth win in the Deadly Design Zipping Classic (previously known as the Williamstown Cup, Sandown Cup and Sandown Classic) in the last six years and he is sure to be represented. The race was renamed the Zipping Classic in 2011 following the incredible effort by Zipping, owned by Lloyd Williams, to win the Sandown Classic for the fourth successive year in 2010. The Sandown Classic was first run as the Williamstown Cup in 1888 and later renamed the Sandown Cup before becoming the Sandown Classic and now the Zipping Classic. The race has been run at the now defunct Williamstown Racecourse, Caulfield, Flemington, Moonee Valley and, of course, Sandown, making it the only event to have been contested on five Melbourne metropolitan tracks. Sportingbet Sandown Guineas Day on Saturday, November 16 is a great conclusion to an outstanding carnival.

MOTORING

Holden’s back on Trax By MURRAY HUBBARD THE compact SUV segment has a range of designs from boring to brilliant with the Holden Trax sitting to the right of centre as a well-styled SUV that exudes some style. The GM Trax has styling cues that break up the boxy design with muscular treatments where they make a difference to eye appeal, namely the mudguards, bonnet and rear quarter panels. A factor that young families like is high-seating position,

not just for driving, but for ease of placing priceless cargo into capsules and baby seats. The interior of Holden Trax is basic although the layout is fine and some of the design makes it interesting - like the prominent air-conditioning vents on either side of the dash that protrude like Porsche 911 headlamps. The dash centre is dominated by the 7-inch screen that supports the MyLink system. However, the overall feel is of cheap grey plastics, even though the design and layout is

functional. The driving position delivers good viewing and no one could complain about seat comfort. The rear pew is not bad either although better suited to two adults than three. There’s a fold down centre armrest with dual drink holders and good leg room as long as the front seat passengers aren’t overly tall. The cargo area is usable for the weekly shopping or a couple of medium-size suitcases and the Trax has a 60/40 split rear seat that gives good versa-

tality. Combined fuel consumption is officially 7.6 litres/100 km from the engine with auto combination, which is exactly what we managed during our week-long test. Holden is now including IsoFix child seat restraint anchors across all new models and the Trax gets these. Trax comes with an Australasian NCAP five-star safety rating. Safety features include six airbags, rear view camera, rear parking sensors, stability control, ABS brakes, EBD, BA and ESP traction control.

Neat shape of the Holden Trax is sure to interest a lot of potential buyers. It sits well on the roads and four cylinder petrol is adequate the suspension soaks up the in that it had no trouble matchhits. ing the traffic around it, but it The Trax is not the quickest will not break any speed recar in the segment.

Shoppers invited to celebrate By CASEY NEILL PARKMORE Shopping Centre has been a meeting place for the local community for 40 years and will celebrate the milestone with the people who’ve made its success possible. “The guests that walk through our doors every day,” centre manager Elizabeth Moroney said. “I think Parkmore is very much a centre for the local community. “I was talking to a woman who started shopping here in 1973 when we opened and hasn’t looked back. “We want to invite them to celebrate.” Festivities on 14 November are also designed to welcome those moving into the growing Keysborough community. “And, hopefully, get some new customers for the next 40 years,” Ms Moroney said. Parkmore shopping centre first opened its doors on 27 November

1973 as the fourth largest self-supporting shopping centre in Victoria. “Since then there have been a few physical variations but the core purpose of the centre - to be a meeting place for the community, with a convenient and family-friendly approach - still rings true and is what guides the centre,” Ms Moroney said. “With over 8.7 million guests a year, we think we must be doing something right!” Ms Moroney said the centre had seen a few facelifts, with major renovations happening in 1995 and 2007 in line with the growing demand from the local population. “We’re constantly evolving the centre to make sure it remains relevant,” she said. She’s not too sure what the future holds for the centre, but is determined to ensure it keeps giving shoppers reason to come back. “We want to make sure we’re here for the long haul,” she said.

Parkmore staff are ready to celebrate the centre’s 40th birthday. 109122

‘Spaceship headquarters’ draws crowds By CASEY NEILL THOUSANDS of people packed the $4.5 million Parkmore Shopping Centre - looking “a lot like a science-fiction spaceship headquarters” from the air - for its gala opening on 27 November 1973. The crowd was so dense by 9am that the 1200-space car park was filled to capacity, the Journal reported at the time in pages of coverage. Many shoppers were from distant suburbs and country areas, but most were locals with an eye to bargains and their hearts set on Christmas purchasing. They also came to see “Australia’s top showbiz personality” Johnny Farnham. The Journal brought him exclusively to the opening and he reportedly “made friends with everybody from matrons to youngsters”, had the littlies singing nursery rhymes and handed out gifts. The Journal also brought Santa to the centre in the world’s largest hot-air balloon on 30 November. Centre manager John Mickles said the opening was “just tremendous”. “We have 59 shops and to show the faith of the traders in this newly-expanding area, there is only six not yet let,” he said. “I’m confident Parkmore will fill a muchneeded want for the public and will go a long way.” Mr Mickles had been associated with building development in the area for 15 years and had been the youngest mayor of any city in Melbourne after holding the role at St Kilda at age 31. He managed “the fourth largest freestanding shopping centre in the state” as well as chairing its merchants’ association. At the opening, Coles New World Supermarkets Victorian general manager Robert Plunkett told the Journal that Coles was “delighted to be associated with such a modern and progressive shopping centre”. “We think it has enormous potential and will grow and grow over the years,” he said. Mr and Mrs Foxman came to the opening from Clayton because it was Mr Foxman’s day off. “The centre is beautiful and right on our own doorstep, too,” Mrs Foxman said. “I feel it will serve a much-needed want with the new houses and development in the area.” Thyra Hussey from Hampton Park was interested in “food bargains”, especially biscuits and tinned goods. “Groceries we buy today can spread over the Christmas period,” she said. “You can do your shopping all in the one spot - that’s a main advantage.” Barbara Ritter, from Noble Park, was laden with a portable typewriter, coffee and biscuits as she left the opening. “I think I’ll shop here all the time. If I had a car I’d get food, too,” she said.
