Fight of her life By XAVIER SMERDON ALEXANDRA Miller’s parents have not told their four-year-old daughter that she will only live for a maximum of two more years. Last month the cheeky and mischievous child was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), an extremely rare tumour located in the middle of the brain stem. It only effects children and is incurable. Only three cases are seen by doctors at the Royal Children’s Hospital every year, and little Alex just the second person to be diagnosed this year. “We’ll never forget when we found out,” Alex’s father Andrew said. “It hit everybody really hard.” With an infectious laugh and a cheeky way of getting what she wants, you would never know that Alex is in the middle of the fight of her life. Just over a year ago Alex was taken to a doctor when her left eye started to turn inwards, and her parents were told it was most likely a muscle or nerve condition. As more tests were done and she was prepared for an operation, it was discovered that she actually had the rare tumour. “It just broke our hearts,” her mother Eva said. “I was in total disbelief and shock. I just remember thinking, how can you not operate on it? Why can’t you fix it?” As soon as Andrew Miller heard of his daughter’s condition, he flew back home from his interstate job as a crane operator, handing in his resignation immediately. The most optimistic diagnoses so far has been that Alex will only live for another two more years. Andrew and the rest of the family said they just want to spend as much of that time as possible with Alex, creating lasting memories. “I was a dribbling mess for ages when I found out. I couldn’t even look at someone without breaking down,” Eva said. “It was like being given a daily pass to hell. You always want to protect your kids but this is something you can’t do anything about.

but in the meantime her siblings Tessa, Shana, Ash and Brooke are doing everything they can to keep a smile on their little sister’s face. For now Alex is living the closest thing possible to a normal life and last week she told Star that her favourite thing to do was to draw rainbows and to play with her new pet guinea pig. But with Andrew having to sacrifice bringing in a pay cheque for spending time with his daughter, medical bills are piling up. “With my job I’ve been away quite a bit to try and provide for the family,

and we’ve been limited as far as dad and daughter time goes,” he said. “Now none of us are working but we still have a house to run, and you can’t lose sight of that, so it’s always in the back of your mind.” A bank account has been set up in Alex’s name so donations can be made.

“But you’ve just got to pick yourself up and start laughing and smiling with her to make sure that she is happy.” While Alex receives almost daily treatments of radiation to try and stunt the growth of the tumour, as far as she knows, she is only going to hospital to try and fix her eye. “It would be really hard for an adult to face their mortality, so how do you tell a four-year-old that they won’t live much longer?” Eva said. Eventually Alex will lose her mobility and control of her facial muscles,

Hillier view

By XAVIER SMERDON WYNDHAM’S new mayor has declared he will focus on the biggest issues facing the municipality and has said he will be an inclusive representative. Bob Fairclough fended off a challenge from colleague Marie Brittan to win the mayoralty by seven votes to four. After arriving from New Zealand in 1984 Cr Fairclough worked as a professor at Victoria University before retiring in 2005, the same year he became a councillor. Cr Faiclough said he was “delighted” to be announced as the mayor at last Wednesday’s public meeting. “I’m absolutely delighted to be given the opportunity to represent Wyndham,” Cr Fairclough said. Cr Fairclough said he used to be a member of the Labor Party but quit several years ago, and he committed to work with all sides of politics to get the best results for Wyndham. “When you’re on council it’s important to work with all political parties,” he said. “Being an independent I think makes it easier to interact with all members of the community no matter what their political background is.” Cr Fairclough said he wanted to focus on the areas that had been identified by residents as the most important for the municipality. These were public transpor-

Home or Office We Come To You

I AM a former member of the Werribee Racing Club and also served on the committee for a few years. I was on the committee when the new grandstand was opened and when racing was stopped at the course because the track was not up to standard. The club went perilously close to going out of existence. There was talk of a housing development going up on the site and the rich history of the Werribee Racing Club hung in the balance. Fortunately that did not happen. The International Quarantine Centre saved the club and part of the deal was a multi-million dollar upgrade of the track so racing could continue in the months between housing the international horses for the spring carnival. Last week, the time-honoured Werribee Cup was dealt another massive blow, the meeting scheduled for tomorrow, 13 November, was shifted to Ballarat and the Werribee meeting postponed until 15 December. That is simply not good enough. In this day and age the problems with the track would have been obvious some time ago not a week before the event. The Werribee Cup has become some sort of nomadic joke in the racing industry. It has been run at Geelong, run twice in the same year, not run at all and run on almost every day of the week. The Werribee Cup used to have credibility; for God’s sake, the great Makybe Diva won this Cup in 2002. The people running racing don’t seem to understand what a big event this used to be in the City of Wyndham, and I say used to be, because it is now officially stuffed. I know the Wednesday before Melbourne Cup was a bigger day for many locals than cup day itself. There was no point trying to get any business done that day this side of the West Gate. After the race the town was buzzing with every pub and restaurant packed. Sadly that is not the case now, and I doubt ever will be again. After the money that has been spent on the track, why is it still not fit to hold a meeting? The people of Wyndham deserve some answers as does the racing fraternity. I would love to hear your thoughts but for me the Werribee Cup is now a shadow of its former self as a race. If you have any news or events please let me know on the email kevin@howdypartnersmedia. com.au 402308-JF20-9

Werribee Cup on hold By XAVIER SMERDON WERRIBEE Racing Club’s flagship event has been postponed as Racing Victoria announced that the track would not be ready to host the Werribee Cup on Wednesday 13 November. The meeting will instead be transferred to Ballarat to give more time for a new multi-million dollar renovation of the inside section of the track to consolidate. As a result, the TAB Werribee Cup, which was scheduled to be run on Wednesday, will now be conducted at Werribee on Sunday, 15 December. The 2000-metre Benchmark 78 race that was to have been run as the Cup will retain its $80,000 stake,

but will carry a different name for the new Ballarat meeting. The remainder of the race program remains unchanged. The inside seven metres of the Werribee track underwent a major renovation following the abandonment of the Club’s meeting on 17 July 2013. It has remained out of commission during the Spring Racing Carnival so that it could best consolidate for Werribee’s busy summer racing period. RV’s Chief Executive, Bernard Saundry, said the decision to reschedule the Cup, made in consultation with the Victorian Jockeys Association (VJA), had been made to allow the renovated section of track

further time to consolidate. “It is important for the industry and the local community that racing return to Werribee with the track in peak condition and we are not satisfied that it would be at its optimum for next Wednesday’s meeting,� Saundry said. Werribee Racing Club general manager Ross Kendell told Star the track was “excruciatingly close� to being ready for the Werribee Cup. “The inside seven metres, which has undergone a major renovation since July, has made pleasing progress over the past fortnight with the warmer weather,� Mr Kendell said. “But it has not quite consolidated to the standard we would like to commence racing on it next

Wednesday. “I think it’s fair to say that Werribee is judged twice as hard as most other tracks ... because of its history,� he said. “We just weren’t prepared to come back early and risk any kind of incident happening.� Mr Kendell also gave an “ironclad� guarantee that the track would not be used as much next year, giving it a better chance to be ready for scheduled race meetings. The club contacted members who had made reservations for the Cup last week. Free entry and reduced prices will be available to patrons for the rescheduled meeting in December.

Westgrove Primary School’s Grade 6 multimedia students Ben and Tanika are excited to be finalists in the 2013 Screen It competition. 109271 Picture: DAMJAN JANEVSKI

Students make multimedia finals success WESTGROVE Primary School’s multimedia students are already showing their great talents and have been announced as 2013 Screen It finalists. The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) last week announced the finalists for the annual Screen It competition which is Australia’s largest competition for school-aged film-makers, animators and game makers. The Westgrove students are one

of seven finalists nation-wide in the Primary Animation category. Multimedia teacher Angela Walsh said the school had only just introduced the multimedia program to the Grades 5 and 6 students this year and was proud the students were already producing a high standard of work. “They’ve done extremely well,� Ms Walsh said. “They sacrificed one or two lunch times a week to work on the project over the term.� “They showed a lot of indepen-

dence and their enthusiasm was definitely evident.� Ms Walsh said the group of students who worked on the project eagerly approached her at lunch times to work on the project. “They showed true dedication and perseverance,� she said. Everything in the movie from voice-overs to the music was created by the students. “They created little plasticine characters with the wire to stabilise it and they created the scenery and all the things that are on the movie

itself they created,� Ms Walsh said. “They are very proud of what they’ve achieved,� she said. Almost 1500 students from 373 schools from every state and territory created live-action films, computer games and animations to suit this year’s theme ‘Connect’. The winners will be announced on the ACMI website on Monday 25 November. For more information on Screen It 2013 visit acmi.net.au/screenit

Avalon jobs lost By XAVIER SMERDON ALMOST 300 people will lose their jobs at Avalon Airport after Qantas announced it would be closing its heavy maintenance facility by the end of March next year. The airline will continue to maintain aircraft at its major facility in Brisbane after the Avalon base is closed. Qantas Domestic CEO, Lyell Strambi, said that after a comprehensive eight week review it was clear that there was no future for the Avalon maintenance facility. “Qantas is gradually retir-

ing our fleet of Boeing 747 aircraft, which means there is not enough work to keep our Avalon base viable and productive,” Mr Strambi said. “Over the next four years there would have been up to 22 months with no scheduled maintenance at Avalon. No business could afford to continue operating a facility under those circumstances.” Qantas is the only major airline in Australia that does heavy maintenance. The Avalon closure will see 53 Qantas employees and 246 contractors, who currently work for Forstaff, without jobs.

Mr Strambi confirmed that staff had offered to take pay cuts to keep their jobs in Avalon. “I particularly acknowledge constructive efforts from one of the unions which would see some employees take up to three months leave without pay in an effort to keep the facility open, however this wouldn’t come close to addressing the 22 months of no work over the next four years,” he said. “Our next step is to examine where this work will be done,” he said.

Caryn Hearsch has started the support group Workers Connect to connect and help others who are recovering from work injuries like herself. 109311 Picture: DAMJAN

New support group hopes to connect unemployed By YASEMIN TALAT THE last year has not been easy for Hoppers Crossing resident Caryn Hearsch. Last May Ms Hearsch was involved in an accident, where she slipped and injured herself at work. She sustained a shoulder injury and has been out of work since. She hoped to go back to work this year but the 57 yearold was not offered her same job back. “I feel so lost and alone I don’t feel I have any worth anymore because my job was such a huge part of my life and since that’s been taken away I just don’t feel I have a purpose,” Ms Hearsch said. Ms Hearsch has eagerly

been trying to get back into the workforce, applying for up to 60 different jobs, but has had no luck. “I need to work financially and mentally. I need that outside stimulation,” she said. “For 40 years I’ve got up to work to go to a full time job,” she said. “I expected to stay at my job for the rest of my life.” “All I did was walk down the corridor to my office as I had been doing previously, I slipped and my whole life changed.” Ms Hearsch said her injury affected her life in many ways but she hoped to help make a difference for others. She has decided to start a support group for others in similar situations.

“You are financially penalised, you cannot work, you become depressed, you lose friends and even family because they cannot cope with this new person you have become,” she said. “It’s just damn hard every day. “I thought there must be other people out there who feel the same way. “Anyone who is recovering from an injury can come along and have a coffee with people who have been through the same thing.” The new Workers Connect Support Group will meet for the first time on Wednesday 27 November at 10 am at Donut King in Werribee Plaza for more information call Caryn on 0408 371 294.

New tip cell needed as space runs out By XAVIER SMERDON WYNDHAM Council is planning on submitting a works approval to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to begin using a new cell at the rubbish tip, as the areas currently used reach the end of their available space. Cr Heather Marcus said Wyndham City will host two public information sessions to assist residents to understand

the application and the approval process, ahead of a consultation phase that will be co-ordinated by the EPA. “Industry experts will all be available to answer any questions residents might have about the planned works. Wyndham staff and EPA Officers will also be present and can explain (the) EPA’s assessment process,” Cr Marcus said. “The proposal is to construct another ‘cell’ ten hectares in

St Martin celebrates with a feast By XAVIER SMERDON A LAVERTON school has celebrated the different backgrounds of its students by holding an extra special feast. Students from St Martin De Porress Primary in Laverton were encouraged to dress up in clothes from their cultural backgrounds last Wednesday. The cultural day also coincided with the feast day of the school’s namesake, Saint Martin De Porres. Principal Chris Walsh said the relatively small school was proud of having such a diverse group of students. “Because St Martin De Por-

res had quit a multicultural background we thought we would combine our feast day with the current learning theme of Where in the World,” Mr Walsh said. “We always teach our students that regardless of where we come from, we are one family working together to create a caring and supportive learning community.” The school’s 136 students come from roughly 20 different nationalities and last week’s event was held in cooperation with Melbourne City Mission, who hold English lessons for members of the Karen community at the school.

As well as enjoying a multicultural feast, students also played sports from different countries, learned indigenous art techniques and watched dancers from different cultures perform. Mr Walsh said he hoped the students would take what they had learned into the real world. “One of the great qualities of the students is the way they just come together and work as one,” he said. “The kids see each other as people, not colours or races, but they also recognise their diversity.”

Sisters of string By YASEMIN TALAT SIBLINGS from Heathdale Christian College in Werribee are following the same rhythm as they prepare to perform in Orchestra Victoria’s mOVe Future Talent Concert. Sisters Lysianne and Stephanie Ahtuam both play the violin, both love it and have both been selected to perform later this month. Lysianne, who has just completed Year 12, started playing the violin four years ago. She was inspired by her older sister Hannah who also played the violin and younger sister Stephanie who was also playing the instrument. Stephanie, who is now in Year 10, started playing the violin in grade two after also being inspired

by her older sister Hannah. And although Hannah does not play as much anymore her younger sisters are continuing the legacy. The pair said they loved playing and practicing together. “It’s really good because we always practice together, she’s my motivation to keep practicing,” Lysianne said. “Two violins sound better than just being on your own so it’s good to practice together,” she said. The girls have played in various orchestras since they started and are now both in the college orchestra. “It’s good because I love violin and I can share that with her,” Stephanie said. “And it’s really good because we can learn from each other,” she said.

The girls were also selected to be part of Orchestra Victoria’s On the mOVe education program where they participated in master classes with professional orchestra players. Music teacher and conductor of the College Orchestra David Filip said the introduction of the College Orchestra this year helped students further develop into musicians. “The orchestra helps the students get more skills and experience,” he said. “It’s really a pleasure to see both Lysianne and Stephanie and how much they’ve improved.” The free concert will be held at the Dallas Brooks Centre on 30 November for more information contact Orchestra Victoria on 9649 Lysianne and Stephanie Ahtuam on the violins. 109315 3600.

The final countdown to digital-only TV has begun!

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. *Please note: switch off may occur earlier in some towns. Residents in these towns will be informed about the switchover dates. See the website for more information.

Pool barrier warning WYNDHAM City Council has encouraged all pool and spa owners to check their barriers as summer fast approaches. Two hundred random inspections across the municipality have shown more than 75 per cent of pool owners failed to carry out the required maintenance of their pools and spas. Three pool owners from Hoppers Crossing have already been ordered to pay up to $3500 for court costs. Another owner was issued a fine as well as a criminal conviction. Councillor Glenn Goodfellow said pool and spa owners should assure their pool or spa is kid safe. “Residents with pools should be checking: could a young child easily climb over, under or through your fence to get to the pool? “Do all of the gates in your pool safety barrier close and latch properly, so that they could not easily be opened by a small child? “Is the pool clear of toys and other floating objects that could attract a child’s attention? “Could a child get access to a swimming pool through a window in your house?” A building permit is required for the construction or alteration of a swimming pool barrier. For more information contact Wyndham City’s Building Service Unit on 9742 0718 or visit www.wyndham.vic.gov.au

Watch out for bird swooping WYNDHAM residents are being warned about the dangers of the breeding season for native birds in the municipality. Wyndham Councillor Peter Gibbons said the birds would defend their territory by swooping unsuspecting passers-by if they felt threatened. “While swooping is generally a bluff to scare you away from the nest, it can be quite frightening and if they connect, may cause injury,” Cr Gibbons said. “There are steps residents can take to protect themselves from swooping birds. Be aware of the swooping hotspots where birds are regularly known to defend their nest and avoid the area. “If you must pass through move quickly, but do not run. Wear a hat and make sure you are carrying a stick to fend off swooping birds. If possible, travel through swoop hotspots in a group.” Cr Gibbons said cyclists should dismount their bikes and walk when travelling through a swooping hotspot.

Long walk to show we care By YASEMIN TALAT MORE than 700,000 carers in Victoria go above and beyond their daily duties to look after and care for dependent loved ones every day. This weekend Carers Victoria will host Walk to Care to recognise the contribution that carers make to the community. Werribee family the Massese’s will unite with relatives and friends this weekend to join the walk, which as carers, they hold close to their hearts. Rick Massese’s mother fought terminal cancer for the last two years of her life before losing her battle to the disease. During this time Mr Massese, an only child, became the carer of his ill mother. Together with the help of his wife Annalisa and his young

children Mia and Thomas and his elderly father Lino, the Massese’s took on a whole family approach to care for Mrs Massese senior. “To a certain degree it was a pleasurable experience because I know mum was comfortable and I know she was well looked after,” Mr Massese said. “We didn’t dwell on her illness we wanted to make her comfortable and do what we could,” he said. “As carers we all had our different roles; my wife did all her personal care, my daughter was nine at the time and she would feed my mum, my son would come home from school and share his work with her. “Even my father to a certain degree was a fantastic carer. They all played their own part and role in the whole situation.”

Mr Massese said Walk to Care was an important event to recognise the many unsung heroes in the community as well as a way for carers to meet others in similar situations. “A walk like this just gives strength and recognition to people and lets them know they’re not alone,” he said. Mr Massese said organisations like Carers Victoria were fantastic and helped him and his family by providing resources and support. Walk to Care will be a leisurely 4km walk from the Coulson Gardens in Maribyrnong on Sunday 17 November and full of kid’s activities and entertainment.

Feral fears Road safety action on intersection over pet fee increase By XAVIER SMERDON

By XAVIER SMERDON WYNDHAM could see a rise in the number of abandoned and feral cats and dogs following an increase in pet registration fees. Since April this year the cost of registering a microchipped dog or cat with Wyndham Council has increased from $15.20 to $45.50, a figure which Hoppers Crossing resident Joanna Colliver said would cause trouble for the municipality. “There is no justification for such a rise in the municipality where people are paying sky rocketing home rates,” Ms Colliver said. “I would like the council to justify the rise in animal registration fees. What do they do for the dogs and cats of most owners?” Ms Colliver said the increase in fees could also see less people adopting pets from shelters. “Many people would like to save a dog or a cat from a shelter, often more than one animal, but paying such a fee will be a deterrent for them,” she said. “Another scenario is that others will not register their pets at all.” According to the council’s most recent Domestic Animal Management Plan, there is already an increasing amount of stray cats being found in Wyndham. “There is emerging evidence of a large increase in un-owned cats,” the plan states. “Un-owned domestic or feral cats are a nuisance in the community and a risk to owned cats through the spread of disease (such a feline aids) and injuries from cat fights.” But Wyndham Council CEO, Kerry Thompson, said the increased fees were the result of State Government legislation. “A new fee schedule for pet registration (under the Domestic Animals Act 1994) was introduced by the State Government across Victoria on 11 April 2013,” Ms Thompson said. “The changes mean that any animal registered after 11 April 2013 is no longer eligible for a discount from the State Government because it is microchipped.” “Wyndham City uses the funds collected through animal registration fees to cover the costs of operating the animal management service, including the Municipal Pound, and towards a domestic animal welfare fund.”

Human rights on menu at Barry Jones Oration ONE of Australia’s best known human rights lawyers was the guest speaker at an annual event in Werribee South. Julian Burnside QC spoke at the Barry Jones Oration on Wednesday 30 October. Councillor Intaj Khan said the Barry Jones Oration aimed to raise the profile and importance of learning and skills development, innovation, creativity and technology in Wyndham. “Each year a high profile speaker is honoured by being invited to speak at an annual oration, named in honour of the life work of Barry Jones,” Cr Khan said. “A ‘Living National Treasure’, former Minister for Science and Technology, Officer of the Order of Australia, quiz champion and author Barry Jones has achieved so much in his career and we have named this oration in his honour. “Julian Burnside is a renowned Australian barrister who practises in commercial litigation, trade practises and administrative law. He has provided legal counsel in a wide variety of highly publicised court cases.” Cr Khan said around 130 representatives from Wyndham’s business community attended the event. “It was a valuable opportunity for a question and answer session, allowing for further insight and knowledge from one of Australia’s leading intellects,” he said.

SAFETY upgrades at one of Wyndham’s most dangerous intersections could finally be starting soon, with the State Government announcing a contract to upgrade the Old Geelong Rd and Forsyth Rd intersection in Hoppers Crossing. Member for the Western Metro-

politan Region, Andrew Elsbury, announced last week that Patten Pavement Services had been awarded the $860,000 contract. “With the intersection’s history of crashes, the signalisation of the intersection will reduce the likelihood of crashes and make driving safer for through traffic and turning

vehicles,” Mr Elsbury said. “When complete, drivers will notice safety improvements including the installation of highly visible traffic signals and new street lighting making the intersection safer, particularly at night.” In the five years through to 30 June 2013, there were six casualty

crashes at the intersection, two of which resulted in serious injuries and four in other injuries. Works will start later this year and be complete in 2014, with other safety improvements at this location including road widening and resurfacing, line-marking, installation of a wire rope safety barrier and a new slip lane.

Victoria University researcher Dr Patrick Guay has studied the skulls of Tasmanian devils to help save the population. 109670 Picture: Courtesy VICTORIA UNIVERSITY

Research is a devil of a job By ALESHA CAPONE A VICTORIA University researcher is playing a role in efforts to keep an iconic Australian animal from extinction. Doctor Patrick Guay works across the university’s Footscray, St Albans and Werribee campuses. He has embarked on a long-term project with partners Zoos Victoria, the Zoo and Aquarium Association and Save the Tasmanian Devil Program. The study will help verify whether the brains of Tasmanian devils get smaller, if they are bred in captivity across generations.

Recently Tasmanian devils have been battling the deadly Devil Facial Tumour Disease which has devastated their population. Efforts to repopulate the species have concentrated on breeding the animals in captivity. This is where Dr Guay’s research comes in - because if the brains of animals shrink while they are in captivity, this can diminish their natural survival instincts upon being released back into the wild. “For me it is a way to make a difference for the conservation of Australian animals,” Dr Guay said. “The big problem with captive breeding is that it is often thought of

as the initial step of domestication which is known to cause irreversible brain size decrease.” As part of his research, Dr Guay has studied the skulls of Tasmanian devils at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston. Dr Guay said his previous studies into ducks, swans and geese has shown their brain size can shrink by around 11 per cent while in captivity. However, so far his work with marsupials has revealed their brains will not shrink if they are kept in an ‘enriched’ captive environment. “What this suggests is that - if the animal is provided with an enriched

environment similar to their natural environment where they have to find their own food - this decreases the chances of having their brains shrink,” Dr Guay said. He said most scientists conducting research want to obtain significant results so they could publish their work. “But in this particular case, getting no particular difference with wild and domesticated animals is what we are hoping for - although I am not trying to pre-empt the results at all,” Dr Guay said. “If there is no change, in this case that is a good news story.”

Life’s little treasures By XAVIER SMERDON WITH two young children under the age of two, Jacki McMeeking has certainly got her hands full, but she would not trade it for the world. Her youngest daughter, Aerin, was born two months premature weighing just 1324 grams due to a condition where the two had incompatible blood types. Aerin spent one week in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and another five weeks in a special care nursery after she was born. Jacki said this time was one of the most stressful in her life. “It was exhausting and incredibly scary,” Ms McMeeking said. “We started to get indications from our doctor at around the four-and-a-half month mark of the pregnancy that things weren’t progressing like they should be. “So you lose the pregnancy as well as the birth and the healthy baby stage.” When the Wyndham mother was finally told that her baby would be arriving prematurely, she was more relieved than scared. Today Aerin is a happy and healthy baby who enjoys playing with her sister Freya and Jacki has formed a new group to help other families going through the same situation. “We hear ad nauseam that we have the highest birth rate in Wyndham so it makes you think how many people are having premature babies in the area, yet there’s nothing like this in Wyndham,” she said.

Pavilions open WYNDHAM has added two new sports pavilions to the area with the recently completed Wyndham Vale South Sports Pavilion and the Glen Orden Sports Pavilion ready for use. Cr Peter Maynard said the two new pavilions would bring much-needed space and support for local sports clubs. “The Wyndham Vale Football and Cricket Clubs are excited to be moving to this new home, which now features two new ovals and a pavilion,” he said.

The Wyndham Vale South Sports Pavilion, which cost $2.7 million, will include changerooms, a large social room, fully-equipped semicommercial kitchen and bar, umpire rooms, storage space, covered outdoor spaces, a new car park and lighting. The Glen Orden Sports Pavilion is also completed after a $2.6 million make-over. The make-over included a redesign, with the input of members, and refurbished and new spaces.

Get active at army boot camp WYNDHAM’S young residents will be treated to a month of fun with the annual Youth Festival taking place at a new venue. As part of the event, which is organised by Wyndham Council, Cr Marie Brittan has urged young people to get active at the Boot Camp Army Party on Friday 15 November at the Youth Resource Centre. “The camo dress-up party is going to be lots of fun. There will be a DJ room for the dancers and a giant inflatable army obstacle course for all the ‘soldiers’ out there,” Cr Brittan said.

“Join in water fights and boot camp competitions, with a variety of prizes to be won. It only costs $2 and snacks, drinks and a barbecue will be provided. “I am also very excited to announce this year’s Wyndham City Youth Festival will be taking place on Friday 22 November, 2013 at Mossfiel Reserve from 4pm until 9pm. Cr Brittan said the annual event is usually held at the Youth Resource Centre, however due to the construction at the Wyndham Leisure and Events Centre, the switch had been

made this year to Mossfiel Reserve. “Free rides and amusements will be part of Festival, as well as a free sausage sizzle - so make sure you and your friends head down for a fun day out,” she said. All Youth Service programs are fully supervised and are alcohol, drug and smoke free events. The Youth Resource Centre is located at 86 Derrimut Rd in Hoppers Crossing.

Ready to walk to end cancer THREE Werribee mothers will be walking towards a healthier future for their young daughters when they take part in the upcoming Weekend To End Women’s Cancers in March. Rachel Black together with friends Tanya and Tamara have registered their team Flourish Fitness, and will take part in the 60km, two day walk benefiting the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. “We all have daughters and it seems to be becoming more and more common that women are getting, not just breast cancer, but all sorts of cancers,” Ms Black said. “It’s our idea to do something to protect our girls when

they grow up.” Each participant of The Weekend must raise a minimum of $2000 to participate, so Ms Black and her team are working hard both on and off the tracks to make a difference. “At the moment we are walking 20 kilometres once a fortnight and in the next couple of weeks we’re going to increase that to 25 kilometres,” she said. “And eventually we are going to try and walk from Werribee to Williamstown.” “We would love to get some sponsors that would be fantastic.” “Tamara has had a car boot sale and we are doing a Bunnings sausage sizzle.” “And we’ve been asking

friends and family and local businesses to get behind us.” Proceeds from The Weekend will provide vital funding to research and clinical care at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre which is Australia’s only public hospital solely dedicated to cancer, and home to Australia’s largest cancer research group. “Ultimately the reward is that we know it’s going to a good cause,” Ms Black said. “And hopefully when our girls are old enough there will be some prevention methods in place.” To make a donation visit www.endcancer.org.au and search for Rachel Black or her team Flourish Fitness.

Importance of recycling By YASEMIN TALAT

Campbell sorts through some books. 109313

WYNDHAM’S youngest residents will be busy this week celebrating a brighter future. This week marks Planet Ark’s National Recycling Week and the kids at Wyndham Vale’s Community Children Child Care and Kindergarten know the importance of the week. All the kids will be celebrating the week with a massive book swap party. Sustainability Leader for Community Children Sarah Lawrence said the children were encouraged to bring in a book they were happy to swap with Picture: JOE MASTROIANNI other children.

“All of our children have donated a book,” Ms Lawrence said. “They will get to go shopping and bring a new old book home, it’s lovely for them,” she said. “They are very excited, they’re all talking about which books they were bringing and which books they want to get.” Throughout the week children will take turns in choosing a book to take home from the bunch of pre-loved books which they donated. Rather than asking the parents to bring in just any book the children were actively involved in the event by donating and choosing replacement books

themselves. “We asked the children to find a book that they didn’t read anymore, that was still nice and that somebody else might like to read,” Ms Lawrence said. “When they choose the books to swap they’re happier to donate and they also have a better understanding of what’s going on,” she said. “They understand that someone else will get their book and they will get theirs.” For more information about the week and local events visit RecyclingWeek.PlanetArk.org or for local recycling options visit the Wyndham City Council page.

IT’S Keeping Up With the Kardashians, City of Maribyrnong style. Khloe Kardashian will visit Highpoint Shopping Centre on 20 November as part of a whirlwind Australian tour to celebrate the recent launch of the new ready-to-wear Kardashian Kollection. Khloe and sister Kim gave Star an insight into their new Kollection last week, which includes a mix of clothes, jewellery, sunglasses, handbags, hosiery and denim that reflects Khloe, Kim and Kourtney’s personal style. For the first time, the Kardashian Kollection also includes a line of shoes designed exclusively for Australia in partnership with RMK Shoes. “I’m so excited, I love Aus-

tralia, I could move there - and any day I would love to,” Khloe said. “Our Kardashian Kollection is obviously one of our biggest passions, and we have some phenomenal graphic prints, some large floral prints, a lot of black and white and we’re also launching our shoes for the very first time in Australia, and that is something that we’re so excited about and we’ve been working very hard on. “I think the biggest plus about our line is you have three different sisters who definitely have our own style, our own likes and personalities, so you have three different designers for one line, so you get a little bit of everything, and I think that’s the perk and why, in my opinion, it does so well.” Kim added: “We have so

Kev’s Greatest Gadget Just as we have the dazzling displays of Kit Kats, Flakes and Freddo Frogs to tempt us at the supermarket checkout, I always find it hard to resist the itty bitty little gadgets you find on display next to the cash register at most homewares stores. You know the ones I mean – teeny little silver turkey thermometers, micro-sized cheese graters … fridge magnets shaped like chickens with built-in tape measures.

garlic,” she replied, plucking one out of the display and holding it up for inspection. “See? You put your garlic cloves inside, and then give it a roll.” To demonstrate, she then rolled the squishy little yellow cone under her palm on the counter. Personally, I thought the whole idea was a load of codswallop, but Kevin was already sold. Seconds later, so was the yellow garlic cone (I thought the hot pink one looked nicer.)

Well, the other week Kevin and I stumbled on a beauty. At least, Kevin did. We’d just popped into the Chef’s Hat in South Melbourne to buy some new frypans when Kevin suddenly became mesmerized by some colourful little silicone cones on display at the checkout. “What do these do?” he asked the lady behind the counter. “They peel

Anyway, the following week Kevin got his first opportunity to put his new gadget to use. Every Monday night at our house, we have Kev’s Cook Up, featuring his famous ‘Monday Mushies’ – three different types of mushrooms sautéed in lashings of garlic and wine. Kevin took three unpeeled garlic cloves, sliced off the woody ends, and eagerly stuffed them into his cone. Then he rolled it on the bench, tipped out the cloves … and voila! They were all perfectly peeled. He did three more … and three more perfectly peeled cloves came out. He was beside himself with excitement and very quick to say to me “I told you so.”

I must say I was fascinated when a workmate (and fellow foodie) told me about the pizza base he’d recently made, requiring just two ingredients – yoghurt and flour! Great if you don’t want to muck around with yeast, or don’t have the time or patience to wait for dough to prove. This recipe from KidSpot Kitchen will make one pizza: In a bowl, combine one cup of self raising flour with one cup of Greek or natural yoghurt and bring together to form a ball. Turn out onto a floured board, then knead and roll. Knead for five to eight minutes, before rolling out.

Good thing I had my iPhone handy, because I have photographic evidence. See for yourself. The silicone garlic cone really is a winner!

She’ll be Jake, mate By ADEM SARICAOGLU A BRILLIANT bowling performance from Jake Haberfield lifted Footscray Edgewater to a nailbiting 14 run win against Prahran on Saturday. After setting the True Blues 309 for victory on day one, Footscray found itself on the back foot as Prahran recovered from an early stumble. From 1/0, the batting side moved along to 1/102 as Adam Bull and Steve De Bolfo combined for the triple digit partnership. The re-introduction of Haberfield into the attack brought about the demise of the latter, as De Bolfo was bowled for 32 and Jack Taylor soon followed for a duck. Bull remained at the crease despite the double strike and combined with James Miller for a 135run partnership. Seemingly cruising at 4/241, the Footscray bowlers hit back. Haberfield again secured back-to-back wickets and this time he was joined by Travis Dean who also made a double strike. Dean removed Bull for 163 and True Blues captain Sam Coates for 11 to leave the chase in tatters. The remaining wickets also fell in quick succession as Footscray ended the Prahran innings at 294 in the 89th over. Haberfield finished the match with the dominant figures of 7/82 from 27 overs. Since joining Footscray in the off-season, the opening bowler has taken 19 wickets, the most of any Premier Cricket bowler. He was well supported by Dean, who finished with figures of 2/23 while Hamish Winter-Irving took one wicket. The result sees Footscray move into outright second place on the Premier Cricket ladder with a 5-1 win/loss record for the season. The Bulldogs are just three points behind top of the table Carlton. When round seven of the season continues this weekend, Footscray will take on 15th placed Frankston in a two-day fixture.

FOOTBALL Federation Victoria has officially confirmed the Victorian model of the National Premier League will not be introduced for the 2014 season. The FFV made the announcement via a media release late last week. It means the Victorian Premier League will continue in its normal format next year. “It is with great regret and disappointment that the FFV board announces that the National Premier Leagues (NPL) will not be introduced in 2014,” the release said. The FFV had planned in September to announce the successful applicants that would take part in the new league. However, the Magistrates Court restrained the governing body from making an announcement and referred the matter to the Supreme Court. The action was brought on by a group of ‘co-signatory’ clubs who strongly opposed the FFV’s model

Cats couldn’t claw it back HOPPERS Crossing failed to give much of a yelp in its ultimately doomed pursuit of Yarraville Club’s 6/383 in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association Senior Division on Saturday. Starting their chase from scratch on Saturday at Yarraville Club’s Walker Oval, the Cats’ already formidable task was rendered almost impossible after two early wickets fell before they could even hit double digits in the runs column. Emmett Bronca removed Chris Henry for a duck and Sanka Abeyruwan for two before claiming Michael Tubb (14) to leave Hoppers Crossing stranded at 3/31. The visitors’ plight was made even more arduous when skipper Darrel Brown (15) became Bronca’s fourth victim a short time later. When Matthew Murphy joined the party in removing Cameron Nicol for eight and William Gardiner for three, the game looked to be over. A strong middle order resistence led by Asif Jan (56) and Luke Goegan (46) added some respect to the Cats’ chase, but it wasn’t nearly enough in the end as Hoppers Crossing was bowled out for 181 in the 70th over.

No NPL next year By ADEM SARICAOGLU

for the NPL, citing numerous issues that included restrictions on junior participation, registration costs, facility requirements and their strong dissatisfaction with the FFV’s consultation process. Both parties recently attended mediation sessions in an attempt to resolve the matter, but an agreement could not be reached. Local VPL giants Melbourne Knights and Green Gully, along with most VPL clubs, have publicly stated their opposition to the FFV model. State League One outfits Werribee City and Sunshine George Cross were the only established clubs from Melbourne’s West to confirm their interests in joining the NPL. However it now seems likely Werribee City, who won promotion after finishing second in SL1 this season, will take part in the VPL alongside the Knights and Cavaliers next season. Despite the setback, the FFV is still keen to implement the NPL initiative into the Victorian footballing

Werribee City and Sunshine George Cross were both in the running to join the now postponed National Premier League in 2014. 106166 Picture: KRISTIAN SCOTT landscape over coming years. FFV president Nick Monteleone said the idea behind the NPL was to “increase the quality of youth development practices, develop better coaches, require clubs to explain their fee structure and ensure that fees are reasonable and not excessive”.

Monteleone also said it was to “regulate the role of player agents and private academies, improve club governance and financial reporting, correct unsustainable player payments in State League competitions and promote local youth development within the club team structure”.

GRAND United was the only Williamstown and District Cricket Association A Turf home team to score a win in round five of the competition on Saturday. United’s bowling attack proved to be far too good for Melton Centrals in their one-day clash at Parsons Reserve, successfully defending its 9/156. Luke Fox was the star claiming five wickets as Centrals capitulated to be bowled out for just 51 after 22 overs. In other one-day results on Saturday, Bellbridge was victorious over West Newport after reaching its target of 172 with two overs to spare and one wicket in hand. Scott Walker top-scored with 47. Meanwhile the Williamstown Colts were too good for Williamstown Congs, getting to their target of 127 in the 34th over. Gellibrand was also able to snare victory on the road, defeating Melton South Primary School by exactly 100 runs on Saturday. WILLIAMSTOWN has signed former Collingwood rookie listed player Ben Richmond for the 2014 season. Richmond was on the Magpies’ list for a year and played in 16 VFL games for the club. His rise to the ranks of the AFL took a different path to many of his teammates with Richmond an elite basketball player through his junior sporting career. While training at the Australian Institute of Sport he was offered a contract by Collingwood and decided to turn his hand to AFL. Richmond started off playing forward for the Magpies before moving down back in the second half of the season. Seagulls football manager Chris Dixon said his club saw Richmond as an exciting development prospect. “We received strong endorsements about Ben from a few people at Collingwood and were really impressed when we sat down with him by his attitude and desire to improve,” Dixon said. “He got a taste of AFL last year and it’s great he wants to continue down the football path. He performed some really good defensive jobs last year in the second half of the year and actually played one of his better games against us in Round 16. We see him as a player who is going to keep developing and will hopefully get another chance in the AFL system in future years.” Richmond’s signing adds to Williamstown’s developing key position players with David Fahey and Sean Tighe having already been added, along with Sam Critchley, Simon Deery and Ben Casley all re-committing for season 2014.

Giants back in town By ADEM SARICAOGLU THE Werribee Giants are back on the winners list in Division Two baseball after beating St Kilda 2-1 at Presidents Park on Sunday. The Giants opened the scoring in the third inning before St Kilda replied with one of its own in the fourth. However it didn’t take long for Werribee to restore its lead, knocking in a second run in the fifth which turned out to be enough for the Giants’ third victory of the season. Werribee coach Phil Balzer said the slightly windy conditions suited the pitchers throughout the low-scoring affair. “Aaron Brandt (St Kilda’s pitcher) threw pretty well and with 10 strikeouts against us, we certainly had our work ahead of us,” Balzer said. “But Wes De Jong pitched seven innings for us, and whilst he only got one strikeout, he only gave up six hits as well. “So he was outstanding for us keeping them down to just one run, but we had some good defence behind him as well.” With the fifth-placed Giants now back above .500 with a 3-2 record, Balzer is feeling good about his side’s prospects despite a noted lack of offensive power at the plate. “I am pretty confident in what we’re doing,” Balzer said. “We’re very solid defensively. Offensively we’re not overly strong, but if we get a couple of guys on (base), I think we’re the fastest team in the league in terms of leg speed.“If we get a couple of guys on (base) then we’ll be able to start doing things and put the pressure on the opposition when they make mis-

Young girl, big stage By LIAM TWOMEY Werribee was very good defensively in its win over St Kilda on Sunday. 90661 Picture: MATHEW LYNN takes and capitalise on that.” Werribee’s next date will be with third-placed Springvale on the road this coming Sunday. Balzer is bullish about his Giants’ prospects, not only for this weekend’s clash but the entire remainder of the season still to come. “I’m really confident that we can take

that game and move from 3-2 to 4-2, which should move us into the top four,” he said. “Then it’s up to us after that.” After the Springvale game, Werribee is scheduled for two meetings with Mulgrave (currently last) and one with Port Melbourne (second-last) through to the end of November.

SHE may be young but Scarlett Saxon-Jones is on her way to the big stage. The Werribee Primary School student has been selected in the School Sport Victoria state cricket team. The side, which is made up of some of the best young female cricketers in the state, will compete in the School Sport Australia Cricket Championships in Bendigo.

Saxon-Jones impressed coaches throughout a long selection process, which began in February. She also performed brilliantly in a series of trial games run by Cricket Victoria and School Sport Victoria. The 12-year-old will now join team-mates to play in practice matches and training sessions before the championships in January. Saxon-Jones is also the only team member to be selected from the western metro region.

Greiser’s eye on draft By ADEM SARICAOGLU JAKE Greiser admits he was pretty chuffed after learning he led the TAC Cup in contested possession and clearances this season. The 18-year-old Keilor junior was a standout through 17 games for the Western Jets in 2013, establishing himself as one of the TAC Cup’s leading inside midfielders with an ability to win his fair share of the pill. “Obviously I didn’t come into the season hoping to win those stats, but I was pretty stoked with that result,” a sheepish Greiser told Star. “Most weeks I got pretty high numbers in contested ball and clearances, so having found out I did win that was pretty good to hear.” At 88kg, Greiser was already a ready-made and natural footballer in the trenches coming into his final year of under-18 footy. However, in the hope of hearing his name called by an AFL club come

Draft Watch Jake Greiser DOB: 22/8/1995 Junior club: Keilor Position: Midfielder 2013 Average Disposals: 23.88 (17 games) Torin Baker says: “He’s just a really ruthless, hard competitor - and in today’s footy, where there’s a lot of congestion around the ball, Jake can really slot into games that are played like that.”

year’s end, Greiser sat down with Jets coach Torin Baker and decided to put an emphasis on improving his outside game. “We spoke about what I needed to do this year for the team and for myself, and I guess that contested side of my game was already my strength,” Greiser said. “So it was the uncontested stuff with the uncontested marks, handball receives and spread from contests that was a focus each week. “Last year I wasn’t getting much uncontested ball - and this year I definitely did have good numbers in contested possessions but in uncontested possession, I guess I improved in most weeks.” That steady rate of improvement led to Greiser having his most consistent year to date, for which he was rewarded mid-season by gaining selection for Vic Metro in the national under-18 championships. “This year I thought was a really consistent year for myself,” Greiser said. “Having to play in the midfield each week at the Jets you have to play well - and overall I had a couple of good games. “I was pretty stoked to play Metro but having that hamstring injury, I couldn’t play that last game against Vic Country, so that was a bit disappointing. “But against South Australia I played pretty well with the contested ball and clearances and I did my job, so overall I’m pretty happy with the season.”

Jake Greiser kicks clear against Dandenong earlier this year. 97935 Greiser recovered from that hamstring and returned to the Jets, leading them to the finals before gaining an invitation to the state draft combine in early October, where he ran a personal

best eight seconds flat in the agility test. Now all that remains for Greiser is the dreaded waiting game that is the AFL draft period. “It’s definitely a nerve-racking time

because it’s pretty much out of my control what’s going to happen,” Greiser said. “So fingers crossed something happens.”

West anger at racing move THIS week everyone in the West should have been heading to the Werribee Racing Club for the running of the premier racing event the Werribee Cup, but last Wednesday it was moved to Ballarat because the track is not fit for racing. Why were punters and members kept in the dark and only given seven-days notice of the change. You can read my thoughts on this on my website - howdypartnersmedia. com.au - I am sick to death of the shabby way sport in the West is treated. There is no doubt we have no clout because of the politics of the area and I don’t see that changing for a long time. I don’t know about you but I am sick of being treated like the poor cousin. GOOD to see Ian Denny has not been lost to local footy and has landed the job as senior coach of the Point Cook Football Club who play in the VAFA competition. Daniel Fraser was the club’s inaugural coach and from what I saw, did a great job creating a club that has a good set of values to take it into the future. Ian is a very good coach and the last few years he has done an excellent job with the St Albans Football Club. Coaching at local level has become far more demanding time-wise, and while the rewards have increased I still think there is an element of giving back to the game that far outweighs most pay cheques, and hopefully that will always be the way it is. A well known football figure said to me recently there are two types of people involved in football those that are overpaid and those that are underpaid. He is so correct. WERRIBEE Masters Football Club is looking for players for the 2014 season when it will field three teams - over-35s, over-40s and blokes who should know better or as they are better known over-47s. Training starts on 14 November, from 6.15pm at Wyndhamvale Reserve in Honour Avenue, and continues every Thursday night till a pre-Christmas barbecue. The club has a website www.werribeemasters.

THIS Sunday, Vinnie Turcinovich - a well-known sports identity - will be competing in his 15th half-marathon in Shepparton. Vinnie is a member of the Western Suburbs Triathlon Club and is very well known in footy circles having been a player for the Bulldogs under-19s , Werribee and Williamstown and most recently for his junior coaching at Altona Vikings where he was nominated for the ACFA Award. He will be cheered on by his wife Jenny and their three children - Matthew, Ebony and Darcy. Good on you Vinnie and all the best in your role with Avondale Heights in the EDFL next year as reserves coach. GREAT to see Michael Barlow and Dale Morris back at Avalon Airport Oval last week to speak to the 2014 Morris Barlow squad. These are local players who have missed out on being part of the TAC Cup program, as both Dale and Michael did, but still have a desire to play at the highest level possible. You could find no better role models that these two, and how ironic that both have come back from what looked like career-ending horrendous leg injuries to again be pivotal players for their clubs.

Girls taking footy lead By LIAM TWOMEY GIRLS will be taking centre stage at the Point Cook Football Club next season. The Bulldogs announced earlier this month they would field junior girls’ teams in the fast growing WRFL women’s football competition. Originally the club planned to have one team in 2014 but after strong interest, committee member Mark King said a second team may also be a possibility. “We have been talking about it as a committee for awhile and we put an expression of interest out there to test the waters and it was very positive,” he said. “There are two age groups for girls football, 9-13 and 1318. “We thought we would probably get more girls for the younger group but at the moment we have probably got more for the older. We may even have two teams. We are very happy with how it’s all going.” While women’s football at Point Cook is only in its early days, the club has wasted no time appointing a high calibre head coach. Belinda McErvale will lead the Bulldogs throughout the season. She brings a wealth of experience to the roll hav-

Belinda McErvale will coach the Point Cook girls’ football Picture: DAMIAN VISENTINI teams next season. 109615 ing previously played 10 years of women’s football for Melbourne Uni. “We are so lucky to have someone of Belinda’s calibre on board at the club,” King said. “She is a great lady and she is pretty thrilled about it as well.” Despite the season still being months away, that hasn’t stopped an eager bunch of players getting stuck into early training. The Bulldogs have been running a pre-season academy with excellent numbers for the last few weeks. King said the club would also be looking towards having

a senior team in the future. “The AFL has really put a focus on women’s footy and they are really putting a bit of money into it,” he said. “We would love to have a women’s team. From our point of view, the game is for everyone. Male, female it doesn’t really matter. There are plenty of girls out there who want to play and we are very happy to support that.” Anyone interested in joining the Point Cook Football Club women’s teams can contact Mark King via email, markk4@ bigpond.net.au or phone, 0447 156 108.

Festive spirit of bank comes alive LAVERTON Altona Meadows Community Bank Branch is set to once again sponsor the Laverton Festival, to be held on Sunday 24 November at the Aviation Rd shopping precinct. The Community Bank branch is this year sponsoring children’s activities, including face painting, plaster painting, sand art and a visit by Piggy. Community Bank chairman, Henry Da Silva said the festival was an important event on the community calendar. “The Laverton Festival is a great chance for people in our community to come together and enjoy a free family event,’’ Mr Da Silva said. “We want to sponsor this event as a way of saying thank you to the community for its support of our locally-owned and operated branch. “Since opening our doors in 2000, our customers have helped us to return more than $2.7 million to support important community groups and projects, a truly fantastic achievement.” Community Bank branches are also operated at Altona and Point Cook, with the community company supporting a number of local initiatives, including the Laverton Youth Foundation. Laverton Altona Meadows Community Bank Branch manager Ashley Coles said the branch had contributed more than $150,000 to the establishment of the foundation, which supports leadership development, community projects

The Barking Dogs will be at the Laverton Festival. and programs for local young people. “The Youth Foundation is an inspiring program that aims to develop the leadership skills of young people aged 12 to 25 to generate positive social change and be active citizens in our local community,’’ Mr Coles said. “Our aim is to help create a vibrant

community, generate support for community business and foster strong and long lasting partnerships, all of which help to grow our own business and promote a highly effective local economy. “Just by choosing to bank locally, you are helping to support your local community and invest in its future growth.”

Cruzin’ into festival with knights of chrome VINTAGE Cars are Cruzin into Laverton Festival this year. Cruzin Knights was founded back in 2000 with a group of mates sharing the same interest, cars. After 10 years of talking about putting a club together, in early 2011 the group decided that it was time. Many meetings and discussions took place about what they would like if they started a car club. The one thing the group all agreed on was that it had to be a family orientated car club. In January 2012, the friends held their first club meeting as a car club. From 11 founders at this first meeting, Cruzin Knights had over 50 people show up to sign up 10 months. Today, the group has many more members to add to their club. The club’s latest show generated in excess of $31,000, that is to be donated in full to the Cancer Council. Members would like to say a very special thank you for those members who assisted throughout the day. Cruzin Knights will be present at the Laverton Festival this year with a display of cars. For more information, visit www.cruzinknightscc.com or via Facebook.

Cruzin Knights will show off their classic cars at the Laverton Festival.

African Star Dance and Drumming group will perform at Laverton Festival.

African dance to jazz spirits AFRICAN Star Dance & Drumming has been entertaining Australians since 2007. The company is focused on providing high-quality service and customer satisfaction in all areas of African dance, drumming and other cultural activities. The variety of entertainment on offer includes African dance and drumming workshops for kids and adults. The dance troop specialises in performances at schools, festivals, weddings, kindergartens, fetes, concerts, birthday parties and school holiday programs. The philosophy behind African Star is to teach people of all ages about African culture and traditions.

Everybody has a star inside of them and when the team at African Star perform they draw out the light and allow viewers to shine it at any event, creating a memorable experience for everyone. Among the most talented in the industry is group founder Shabba Eshun. Shabba is a professional dancer from Ghana. His styles include traditional, contemporary, Comedy, Acrobatic, RnB and hip hop. He was a member of Asanti Dance Theatre in Ghana West Africa for five years. He was also an instructor to students touring Ghana from the Deakin University Global Experi-

ence program and the Australian group ‘Wild-Moves’. Shabba has taught workshops to a variety of people from different cultures, backgrounds, age groups and disabilities. Through African Footprint International, Shabba had the opportunity to learn sign language, which enabled him to teach and perform with hearing-impaired students. In 2010, he launched his very own company African Star Dance and Drumming where he continues performing and teaching dance. African Star Dance faciliates workshops to school children and community groups around Victoria.

In 2009, the Australian Government presented Shabba with a 5 Star Community Coach Award for his extensive work in after-school care programs.

His performances include Suzuki Night markets, Sydney Road Festival, Darebin Music Feast, Woodford Folk Festival, Rainbow Serpent, Viva Festival and Moomba. Shabba’s future plans are to further his international career throughout Australia and all over the world.
