n Robbery victim sends fake firearm attackers packing...

Fake gun attack A NOBLE Park man, 45, made a dangerous assumption as he stared down the barrel of what turned out to be a fake gun outside his home last week. Three men - one brandishing the fake firearm - entered his Moya Crescent front yard and demanded money about 5.25am on Monday 25 November as he and a woman, 40, were leaving for work. But the terrifying robbery occurred as Victoria Police figures revealed a 17.1 per cent drop in robberies in the Greater Dandenong police service area (PSA) between 1 October last year and 30 September this year, compared with the previous 12 months. Despite being under attack, the man identified the weapon as an imitation and challenged the thief. “On this occasion the victims were lucky,� Greater Dandenong CIU Detective Acting Sergeant Luke Kirton said. “We’d certainly dissuade anyone in those circumstances from confronting someone believing their gun is an imitation. “It’s not worth risking your life.� The other two thieves approached the woman, demanded money and stole her purse. She chased them to Leslie Street where they produced a metal pole from a car and struck her. They then fled in the vehicle, described as a silver four-door sports sedan with a rear spoiler and covered registration plates. An ambulance took the woman to Dandenong Hospital for treatment for minor head injuries. Overall crime increased 9 per cent in Greater Dandenong in 12 months, Victoria Police figures released last Wednesday showed, compared to a 4.6 per cent increase state-wide. Greater Dandenong Inspector Bruce Kitchen said motor vehicle thefts were down 17.1 per cent, but

street assaults, property damage incidents and residential burglaries had increased. “Rest assured local police are addressing these issues through planned operations and strategic daily tasking of the Safe Suburbs Task Force, uniform members from Springvale and Dandenong police stations, our local criminal investigation unit and newlyformed Tactical Anti-Crime Teams (TACT),� he said. Mr Kitchen said the Greater Dande-

nong Family Violence Unit continued to have a significant impact on repeat offenders and a vast improvement on police referrals and reporting. “It is our view that these strategies will help break the cycle of violence and make the family home safer,� he said. Protective Services Officers (PSOs) have now been deployed to four railway stations within the area - Dandenong, Noble Park, Sandown Park and Springvale. “A reduction in criminal offences

at these locations has continued with their presence,� Mr Kitchen said. He said officers would continue community engagement projects to tackle youth crime, partnering with other government agencies and community support groups. “In the coming months you will see local uniform police at shopping centres and other public places answering your questions, offering advice and asking how police can do things better for you,� he said.

Sign of respect SMOKE filled Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on Friday, but there was no cause for alarm. The Koori Court hosted a welcome to country and traditional smoking ceremony to show respect for the land’s traditional owners. The court opened in 1994 but a ceremony had not previously taken place. Wurundjeri woman, Jemima Gardiner, delivered the welcome to country and the Jindi Woraback dancers performed in traditional body paint with boomerangs Picture: ROB CAREW and didgeridoos. 110545

Changing of the guard tage and currently the longest-serving Labor member in the Legislative Assembly,” he said. Dandenong has been a safe ALP seat since 1969 and takes in Dandenong, Doveton and Eumemmerring and parts of Dandenong North, Endeavour Hills, Keysborough and Noble Park. Like so many other teens, Mr Pandazopoulos started his working life at McDonald’s.

TWO women have nominated to represent the safe APL seat of Dandenong following the announcement by long-serving MP John Pandazopoulos that he won’t contest next November’s state election. President of the Dandenong branch of the ALP Xiaoli Ma and Gabrielle Williams from Box Hill will contest pre-selection for the seat.

Arrest after family ‘set upon’ by dogs Window smash foiled A SPRINGVALE man, 38, ordered his two dogs to attack a couple after he knocked them to the ground, police allege. Greater Dandenong CIU Detective Acting Sergeant Luke Kirton said a woman, 58, was walking her dog in Buckingham Avenue, Springvale, about 11pm on 24 November when two dogs attacked the pet. She took the injured dog back to her nearby residence and her son, 26, returned to the scene with her husband, 61, to

get the other dog owner’s details. The dog owner is alleged to have assaulted the son and punched the father in the head repeatedly when he went to his aid. The offender allegedly knocked the woman to the ground when she returned then encouraged his dogs to attack her and her husband. She suffered facial injuries and her husband suffered a serious laceration to his right leg. Ambulances took both to

Dandenong Hospital where they had surgery. The son was treated at the scene for minor injuries. Officers arrested the man the following morning. He was remanded in custody and will reappear in Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 6 December to answer charges of intentionally causing serious injury and other assault-related offences. Rangers impounded the dogs but City of Greater Dandenong could not confirm their fate.

Memories of a Historical Society livewire WITH a colourful full page pictorial report of the Dandenong Agricultural and Pastoral Society’s 2013 Show highlighted in the Dandenong Journal on 11 November, it was interesting to turn back the clock to the days when Geoffrey Skidmore was an active participant in helping to arrange at the annual show a display featuring the Dandenong Historical Society. The display always drew interested spectators. Mr Skidmore, who died in 1984 at the age of 65, was a keen historian. He joined the Dandenong and District Historical Society in 1966, and was actively involved in its functioning for 18 years. He served as a senior vicepresident and then president. His enthusiasm and dedication was an inspiration to other members, and he set a high standard for 12 years

MY VOICE A MOMENT WITH

MARG STORK when he was honoured as a life member. In 1981, he took on the vital role of vice-president, then minute secretary in 1983 until his death. From 1968, he was society’s South Eastern Historical Association’s delegate. He also was a member of the Bass Valley, the Mornington and the Royal Historical Societies of Victoria. In 1967, Mr Skidmore was a member of an historical society deputation to the City of Dandenong to secure new premises at the Dandenong Town Hall when the council re-located to Clow Street.

Not only did he serve on a sub-committee in 1970 to establish a quarterly Historical Society Newsletter, but he also worked on the sub-committee created to enable the Dandenong Agricultural Society to write its own history. He was involved in a deputation to the City of Dandenong in 1972 to urge the council to form a museum at its then newly acquired Laurel Lodge. Together with many volunteers, he helped to set up and furnish the Lodge when it opened to the public in late 1973. Mr Skidmore was born in Kyneton and was the son of Henry John James (Jack) and Esther Skidmore. His school days were spent in Kyneton, and he moved to Red Hill in the 1930s. It was there he met his future wife, Sheila Sheehan. The couple lived in Red Hill after their marriage, then moved to Noble Park.

During World War II, Mr Skidmore served with the 2/14th Field Regiment in Darwin, and he was a member of the Caulfield RSL. He was employed as a Health Inspector by the Caulfield Council for 30 years. He lived in Noble Park for 30 years and was planning to move to his holiday home at The Gurdies after he retired. Sadly, this was not to be. He made lasting friendships with many residents in Dandenong and Noble Park in particular, and is remembered affectionately. AMBULANCE WARNING With last week’s hot weather, and the forecast for more warm days this week, Ambulance Victoria has sent out a timely warning about the danger of leaving children locked in cars. Shockingly, Ambulance Victoria paramedics were called to cases of

children locked in cars an average of five times a day last summer. Group manager Brett Drummond said leaving children in a car could prove deadly. “Babies and young children can’t regulate their body temperature like adults can, so being left in a hot car can quickly become life threatening.” “It doesn’t have to be a scorching hot day for the car to quickly heat up. Tests by Ambulance Victoria found that even on a 29 degree day the inside of a car can reach 44 degrees within 10 minutes and hit 60 degrees within 20 minutes. “Some peole think they can duck into the shop and leave their child but there’s a risk they will be delayed and it’s a risk that’s not worth taking,” Mr Drummond warned.

LOOKING BACK 100 years ago 2 December 1913 Electric light The electric light poles erected in Thomas Street, complained of at the Dandenong shire council meeting on Monday, as being an obstruction to traffic, are placed on the proper surveyed line and must be left there in compliance with the authorised scheme. The gas company barrackers in the Dandenong shire council evolved a smart question on Monday, viz, “What will be the result if the electric light fails?” This is easy to answer. In such case the light will go out, but the supply in the accumulators will, we hope, keep things go-

ing. The numerous failures of the farthing dip gas were ghastly, and anyone who thought at all would have refrained from referring to the gas company’s bad failures.

When the fire brigade arrived, the blaze had entered the rear of the Journal premises and the flames were licking the roof of the garage. The damage is estimated at between 250 pounds and 300 pounds. About 21 firemen, under Station Officer Dave Foss, attended the fire with very effective results.

Now there are many stores offering the same as we do. Dandenong has grown so much.

Crisis strikes for refugees GREATER Dandenong councillor Roz Blades says there’s a “crisis” among exhausted asylum seeker support agencies and volunteers. She said agencies, wholly dependent on charity and volunteers, were being stretched by the large numbers of resident asylum seekers on bridging visas, who weren’t allowed to work and lived on less than the dole. “There’s a lot of people out there donating their time and their goods so (asylum seekers) can have beds, pots and pans things that we would take for granted. “People are tiring, they’re using their own money and resources. “It can’t go on forever like that. “It’s a crisis. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that agencies are exhausted.” Sri Samy, of Friends for Refugees, said warehouse storage was desperately needed for

donated goods such as televisions and furniture. “We’ve been struggling like this since May and I’ve been lobbying to be heard at all levels of government. “We’ve got a lot of support from the public donating goods but we’re struggling to get it out there. “There’s not enough transport or volunteers.” She said bigger agencies such as AMES, Red Cross and Salvation Army were “doing what they could but they’re also under pressure”. David Spitteler of the Asylum Seekers Centre in Dandenong has had to close his books in the past year to manage new registrations for food aid. “I opened registrations up on Cup day. We got 100 more on our books, bringing a total of 290.” At one stage, the centre was swamped by more than 440 registrations for food. The centre, which runs solely on donations, could not cope.

Mr Spitteler said computers, as well as food donations for Christmas hampers, were required. “We’ve given out 2800 computers since I’ve started. We give away up to a dozen a week.” David Owen, of the Christian-based Multi-Ethnic Support Network, helps about 170 asylum seekers to “learn English and to assimilate” in classes in Dandenong, Noble Park and Doveton four days a week. At the start of the year, there was an initial class of six students. The network, like other English class providers, is now struggling to accommodate demand. “It costs money to run these things,” Mr Owen said. “We’re doing a lot of work in the community, which should be sponsored by government and council.” To help, contact Sri Samy at contact@srisamy.com.au and David Spitteler on 9802 5268.

SOCIALLY SPEAKING create greater certainty and clarity for residents on development. What is now certain is that four-storey developments can be approved in the northern neighbourhood streets of Dandenong, which are predominately single-storey streetscapes. The scales are clearly tipped in favour of developers. Mel, Dandenong.

Well done Cr Brown for bringing this to our attention and shame on the contractors for taking short cuts trying to save costs and using imported materials. Our forefathers didn’t go to war for democracy and independence to see what they fought for slowly being degraded. Bring back the Buy Aussie campaign and patronise Australian-owned companies.

Height of confusion THE new residential zones have been introduced in Greater Dandenong without community consultation. This was justified on the basis that the translation to the new zones resulted in no change in the planning controls contained in Victoria planning provisions. Building height is one such planning control. Maximum building height in the Residential Growth Zone is 13.5 metres, but it was nine metres under its former equivalent. Since when does nine metres directly translate to 13.5m? Amanda, Dandenong.

Lost opportunity HAS our council and planning department seriously considered the cumulative impact of block after block after block of high rises throughout the northern streets of Dandenong in the Residential Growth Zone? The conversion to the new zones means the floodgates are open for four-storey developments spanning out as far as David Street. This will have a depressing affect. It will create a negative impression of our city and we will bear the stigma of our address. For many, it will become a city to be avoided. We will be a city of lost opportunity. Surely we can create more open, inspiring, family and people-friendly neighbourhoods while still achieving our population growth objectives? We should have been consulted before transition to the new zones. The decisions made now will have far-reaching effects, for the better or for the worse, of our city. We need to get this right as these decisions can not be undone. Silvia M, Dandenong.

Inappropriate controls

Cobble concerns

WHEN were Dandenong residents last consulted on whether “planning controls... continue to be appropriate and balance the needs of the community and landowners”? (Jody Bosman, High-rise Residential, Dandenong Journal, 11 November). My recollection was 2008 when Amendment C96 was exhibited. To say planning controls continue to be appropriate is nonsense when there has been no recent community consultation. Residents have been concerned about highrise for years. Issues remained outstanding after Amendment C96 including shrinkage of the now Residential Growth Zone which was required to be dealt with separately. Why hasn’t our council taken action earlier to address this? Why wait for the Zoning Reviews in 2014? The move to the new residential zones was to

Councillor John Kelly doesn’t think the council’s festive decorations are ‘Christmassy’ enough. What do you think? ■ Councillor Sean O’Reilly: Christmas decorations are subject to budgetary limits, the same as all things on council. Happy to hear opinions on whether residents think that more should be spent, though. ■ Laura Wilks: Where does the assumption that it (Christmas) offends Muslims come from? Which Muslim group has spoken out against it? I am personally not aware of any Muslims, be that in my family or wider community, that are offended by it. In fact, I know many who say they actually really enjoy Christmas and I know quite a few families that even put up a tree to get into the festive spirit. After all, it is a celebration of the birth of one of their most important prophets. facebook.com/DandenongJournal

Christ sidelined say churches By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS TWO Christian church leaders have joined a “groundswell of dissatisfaction” against Greater Dandenong Council’s Christmas decorations. Catch the Fire Ministries, based in Hallam, recently removed a website post linking “Muslim mayor” Jim Memeti with the removal of the word ‘Christmas’ from street banners. “It shocks me that in most cases in most parts of the world, people who claim to be offended at the word ‘Christmas’ seem to be Muslims living in the West,” the post stated. “It does not surprise me that the Dandenong Council with a Muslim mayor has decided to follow the same path in removing Christmas celebrations.”

Pastor Daniel Nalliah later told the Journal that the church was “just asking the question: is the Muslim mayor the cause behind the Christmas decorations in Dandenong”. He said the council had described the Christmas omission as an oversight, so he removed the post out of “good will”. Last week the church posted criticism of the council’s Christmas card designs - which mention “Seasons Greetings” and “happy festive season” but no message referring to Christmas. “Please keep praying and speaking out for ‘Merry Christmas’ to be restored in Dandenong and across all of Australia despite of all political correctness, multiculturalism and inter-

faith,” the post stated. David Owen, a pastor at Noble Park Christian Church, defended Cr Memeti who “has taken a great deal of interest in what Christian groups are doing and has put his support behind us”. But he said there was a “groundswell of dissatisfaction” among Christian leaders in the Dandenong Ministers’ Fellowship and a Christian group Momentum. He said council and government money should not be spent on promoting religion “usually under the guise of multiculturalism”. “The $85,000 spent (by the council) on Christmas street decorations would be better used to help supplement our pensioners’ rates giving them a pleasant Christmas gift and something to

celebrate. “This is especially considering we have used the same decorations, bells, boxes, banners and Christmas trees what is Christian about these? - for as long as I can remember and that they do not depict Christianity at all. “After all, Christmas is all about the birth of Jesus Christ. “The Christian community are not even consulted on celebrating Christmas. “At the carols service, we could have a Christmas message of peace and goodwill, instead of Santa.” Cr Memeti said there had been “no decision by anyone at (the) council to remove the word Christmas or cancel or alter the way Christmas is celebrated in our community”.

He said the council also provided roving Christmas performers in shopping districts, and sponsored Dandenong’s Carols by Candlelight. “We’re trying to do as much in the city as we can. I’m happy to hear how we can do it better.” He said he would attend the carols, hoping more people of different faiths would boost numbers at the celebration. “I have many Christian friends. I give them Christmas cards, they invite me to lunch and dinner to celebrate with them. “I also know Christians who celebrate with other communities’ religious festivals. We really respect each other and we’ll keep celebrating with each other.”

Change against racism talked about racism, what it looks like and what they could do. “It allows people to think about the situation and act in a very safe situation,” she said. “When you act in real life in public we don’t know what the consequences are. “It’s hard being the only voice in these situations. It’s best to act not just as an individual but in a group of people. “What if the whole bus or train of passengers stand up and say ‘No’?” The project was supported by Greater Dandenong Council and Southern Ethnic Advisory and Advocacy Council. - Cameron Lucadou-Wells

POLICE nabbed more than 39 drivers during a number-plate sting on the Dandenong Bypass. They ran the automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) operation on 6 November alongside the Sheriff’s office and VicRoads. Police uncovered stolen cars and registration plates, drivers behind the wheel while suspended and unlicensed, unregistered cars and an unaccompanied learner driver. VicRoads officers found an unregistered truck and picked up 11 defects while Sheriff’s officers spoke to 95 drivers regarding outstanding fines and seized a number of vehicles. Dandenong Police Inspector Bruce Kitchen said about one in 20 vehicles intercepted during the operation were “of interest” and Victoria Police had four new ANPR vehicles ready to hit the road. “The chances of being detected by an ANPR vehicle is increasing all the time,” he said. Insp Kitchen warned drivers to ensure their vehicle, licence and fine payments were in order.

children,” he said. “If we come in during a house fire we don’t want them to be scared of us. “We want them to know that we’re there to help.” There were up to four interpreters in the room during each class. “So I’d make a joke and we’d have to wait for them to interpret it and then the kids would burst out laughing,” Mr Sanford said. “They want us to come back and do three or four through next year. “We’re getting a lot achieved.” The 25-member brigade is also eyeing attracting new recruits through community activities. “It’s about getting out in the community and letting people know we’re here and letting them know that we’re all volunteers,” he said. “We’re on call 24-7. “Trying to get members in this area is hard for a couple of reasons - the multicultural demographic, and a lot of students move in, rent for a few years and move away.” About 90 per cent of the brigade’s members signed on less than two years ago. “We’re a very young brigade at the moment, but very enthusiastic,” Mr Sanford said. “We’re doing extremely well compared to where we were five or six years ago. “We do anywhere between 160 to 200 jobs per year. That’s an average of three or four a week.” But new members don’t have to actually get on a truck to help out - they can help with fundraising activities or support firefighters during incidents, he said. Visit www.cfa.vic.gov.au for more information about joining the crew and an expression of interest form.

NOBLE Park Fire Brigade is going above and beyond to engage the suburb’s multicultural community. First Lieutenant Terence Sanford was among four CFA representatives at the Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia conference on the Gold Coast last month, attended by 400 people from across Australia. The theme was Multiculturalism: Breaking down the Barriers - a cause close to Mr Sanford’s heart. “Noble Park is just so multicultural and apparently only 30 per cent of Noble Park speak English as their first language,” he said. This is a challenge for his fire crew in emergency situations. Mr Sandford said he learnt a lot from the trip, particularly about the issues migrants faced in their homelands. “Why they came and the different struggles or barriers that they face coming to a totally new country, not even speaking the language, having no skills, trying to find work, trying to find a place to live...” he said. “Even just finding the services that are available to them. “They get out here and they’re a bit isolated.” The Noble Park brigade and the CFA as a whole is focused on community education. “If we can help stop emergencies by educating on fire safety, we don’t have to turn out on the truck as much,” he said. Mr Sanford and his crew visited Noble Park English Language School last month to teach classes about calling triple zero, smoke detectors and more. “I would come in in my full turnout gear with the breathing apparatus on, because it’s very confronting, especially for

THREE men forced their way into a Noble Park home and stole a dog, a car and a phone. A 36-year-old man answered a knock on the front door at his Joffre Street home about 5.45am on Sunday 24 November. A trio entered and assaulted the victim with blunt weapons, ransacked the house and rear shed, and stole a Ford XR6 se-

dan, a Staffordshire bull terrier and a mobile phone. An ambulance took the victim to Dandenong Hospital with head, facial and leg injuries, defensive wounds to his arms and a suspected broken collarbone. The attackers are all described as Caucasian with a large build. One had a fair-coloured

crew cut and another had longer brown hair. “It’s a nasty assault,” Acting Detective Sergeant Luke Kirton said. “At this stage there appears to be no motivation for the assault. “We’re still waiting until we can talk to the victim.” Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 with any information.

Loud applause By CASEY NEILL DANDENONG’S Senada Aldobasic has been applauded for her dedication to “those with a dim voice”. The 21-year-old was the inaugural winner of the $10,000 Newsboys Foundation Community Leadership Award, which Victorian Governor Alex Chernov presented on 19 November. Speaking from India, Ms Aldobasic told the Journal she was in shock. “Emotions stirred fast and I was in tears,” she said. “Everything that has allowed me to receive the award is what I love doing. “The heroes - my heroes are the ones fighting the fight, doing what they love and standing up for those with a dim voice whom are yet to be recognised. “I wish I could give everyone the recognition they deserve!” Ms Aldobasic’s work has included volunteering for the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME), engaging 120 young people to create mock legislation in the Victorian Youth Parliament, and taking part in the first National Indigenous Youth Parliament. She’s been a youth mentor, engaged young people about safe driving at public events, worked with children who have parents in jail and played basketball with prisoners. Ms Aldobasic said her passion to help “feels natural”. “As Mother Teresa said, ‘when we stop giving we stop loving and when we stop loving

Senada Aldobasic speaks with Dandenong High School students at a ‘speed career’ morning earlier this year. 101035 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS we stop growing’,” she said. She grew up in Dandenong, attending Dandenong North Primary School and Dandenong High School. “Where I learnt to stand up and be the difference, where I learnt the importance of making change and being that change,” she said. Ms Aldobasic was the first in her family to finish high school and go on to university and is in her third year of a Bachelor of Arts (Criminal Justice Administration) at RMIT. The degree required her to undertake an internship in a field relating to her passion standing up for human rights. “Especially that of those whose voice is dim beyond anything imaginable,” she said. This took her to India, where she’s helping to support people trafficking victims.

“Not only have I learnt about the huge issue that violates so many basic human rights I have also learnt about life through the women,” she said. “Their strength is incredible. “My goal is to work alongside the UN, preferably as a field worker which will allow me to advocate and stand up for the rights of human beings internationally.” Dandenong’s Sahema Saberi was a finalist for the Newsboys Foundation Community Leadership Award and received a certificate. The Afghani refugee was this year’s City of Greater Dandenong Young Citizen of the Year. The Newsboys Foundation provides grants to community organisations in Victoria working with disadvantaged young people aged 11 to 18.

Council’s fishing trip fails By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS “THEY tried to catch two sharks and came up with tadpoles.” That was Greater Dandenong councillor Maria Sampey’s conclusion after reading an edited version of the council’s confidential probe into her and Cr Peter Brown. Cr Sampey said she and other councillors were unable to publicly disclose the version’s contents due to a confidentiality agreement.

But in general terms, she said the version listed “a lot of false allegations” including a “trivial and irrelevant” matter in 2009 but no findings against her and Cr Brown. Cr Sampey, whose medical leave was last week extended until the end of January, said she remained stressed and anxious about the probe. “The (complainants) have said whatever they liked about me in the report and I have no right of reply.” The probe into the two councillors

had been launched by chief executive John Bennie and then-mayor Angela Long in May. It was alleged that council officers felt “hurt and distressed” by the accused pair’s conduct when they criticised a bungled footpath built over a mound in Noble Park. Last week, the council again stated that neither the full report or a redacted version would be publicly released, nor the cost of the inquiry. Acting chief executive Jody Bos-

man said the council “will not be making comment and that will remain our stance”. “It’s an internal and confidential investigation. It is not a public inquiry.” Cr Sampey, who with Cr Brown have argued for the report to be made public, said: “If it was being made public, the people who led the investigation would be a laughing stock. “There was no formal complaint made. It’s just a witch-hunt. “They’ve wasted about $14,000 of

ratepayers’ money on this.” She was steadfast in lodging a complaint to the Victorian Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission. Cr Brown said he won’t read the redacted version. “I really don’t want to read the content about people sitting in a room making allegations that won’t make the light of day. Mayor Jim Memeti said last Tuesday that he hoped to read the redacted report “in the next week or so”.

Thai tiles make Aussie grade GREATER Dandenong Council maintains its $65 million municipal building project is meeting its Australian-made benchmarks despite a surprise delivery of ‘made in Thailand’ carpet tiles. The carpet’s origin was discovered by councillor Peter Brown on a visit of the building site last week. “During a walk through, a council officer pointed out a load of cardboard cartons and said that all came from Australia. “On close inspection of the cartons, I said to him, ‘the language might be in English but it says ‘made in Thailand’.” The carpet tiles had been supplied by an Australian manufacturer Interface which, unbeknown to the project team, had to source the tiles from overseas because of a fire at its Sydney plant last year. Cr Brown said the council’s 90 per cent locally-made benchmark added up to $6.5 million excluded from local sources. “A lot of money in anyone’s language and 6.5 million steps away from the assurance (the) council was given... ‘we will use Australian product wherever possible’.

The municipal building, starting to take shape. 110681 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS “There is a difference between the private market and public administration, and if the three levels of government do not support Australian industry, our future unemployed children will not be able to afford even the cheapest imports.” Nick Pavlovic, of the project manager Watpac Constructions, said 90 per cent of materials had still been sourced “locally”, despite last week’s revelation. Interface, a 40-year-old company known for sustainable Australian manufacturing, had been selected after a competitive tender process, Mr Pavlovic said. Its carpet had been required to meet

“specific quality, design, performance and Green Star rating requirements”. “The subcontractor responsible for procuring and installing the carpet is a Melbourne-based company,” Mr Pavlovic said. “Ninety per cent of materials for the project have been sourced locally, as well as providing additional opportunities for local sub-contractors, and this is something we are very proud of.” A council spokeswoman said: “The project is achieving its 90 per cent target for Australian content and... continues to be delivered on time and under budget.” Last week, Cr Brown revealed the project had been delayed partly due to waiting for cheaper glass made in China. He was disappointed that Dandenong-based Viridian Glass “one of Australia’s biggest and best glass manufacturers” hadn’t been utilised. He said the project’s building phase, which was originally due to finish this month, has been extended to the end of January. The council stated its staff would move in on time on 17 March with a formal opening in April.

Street seat By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS PRIMARY school students have taken a seat in “the real world” by designing and pitching a unique bench they hope will grace Springvale’s streets and open spaces. The Year 5 and 6 students from St Josephs Primary School drafted their S-shaped prototype from scratch, collaborating with Keysborough welder and fabricator Mick Cuttriss, and marketed the idea to Greater Dandenong Council. The school is one of nine Greater Dandenong schools unveiling their community projects in a Voices forum held by Monash Health’s School Focused Youth Service on Tuesday.

Get back on track with your career For more than 30 years National Workplace Training (NWT) has transformed the lives of students looking for something other than standard high school and tertiary routes. NWT values all forms of learning, including workplacebased avenues. Our courses provide valuable preparation

St Joseph’s deputy principal Alan Brew said the idea was for students to develop their “voice” through community projects. “It’s something very practical,” Mr Brew said. “It’s getting an idea to fruition in the real world.” The students identified the need for more seating on Springvale streets, then embarked on leadership training, came up with a shortlist of six designs and voted on which would be the final plan. They worked closely with Mr Cuttriss to build a scale model of each option, to decide what were suitable materials and source companies to build

the bench’s components. Then they learnt persuasive writing techniques to pitch to the council why Springvale needs these benches. The final design was a green bench, incorporating a flowered environmental theme and shaped for users to face one another. Mr Cuttriss, a former TAFE teacher, was impressed with the students’ “really worthwhile ideas” expressed in diagrams and pictures. “They pretty much threw themselves into it. They had questions that I hadn’t thought of.” “They’re going to be part of a future we can look forward to.”

Dawn - above and beyond A DANDENONG North carer who went above and beyond the call of duty has been honoured with an Ambulance Victoria Community Hero award. It was in March this year that Dawn Fredericks’ bravery shone through following a horror crash in Hallam. On Friday 22 November, she was held up as the epitome of what the awards are all about when she ignored her own injuries and worked with

emergency crews to ensure the safety of 30 children with special needs from Emerson School in Dandenong travelling on the school bus. The children were flung from their seats and as the cabin filled with smoke, Dawn kicked out the rear window to get the children out safely. Nominating paramedic David Kervin said Dawn was incredibly cool, calm and collected.

He said she was levelheaded and reassured the children, ignoring her own injuries. Health Minister David Davis mentioned Dawn in his opening speech, describing her as a true hero who showed “incredible courage” that day. Dawn said some of the children were traumatised by the crash and that she was “privileged and honoured” to have received the award.

IT’S NONE OF OUR BUSINESS BUT… THE Journal team was left blushing at last Tuesday’s Walk Against Family Violence in Dandenong. During her moving speech, Magistrate Leslie Fleming told the hundreds gathered that she enjoyed reading the Journal each week, particularly our court yarns and a piece from Inspector Wayne Viney about White Ribbon Day in our 25 November edition.

MICA Paramedic David Kervin nominated Dawn Fredericks for an Ambulance Victoria Community Hero award. She was awarded the honour at a ceremony at Parliament House. 111115

Melbourne and surrounding areas switch on 10 December 2013*

A HAMPTON Park man had a candid discussion about his dope-habit with a Dandenong magistrate last week. He replied “not really” when asked if he had a desire to stop smoking cannabis, as he faced charges of growing a 70-centimetre cannabis plant in his garage. Not to be outdone in the comedy stakes, when the magistrate heard the defendant worked at Bunnings he quipped “not in the gardening section?”. He was fined $1100 without conviction and ordered to attend drug counselling. A LONELY delivery driver’s “bad joke” at a Lyndhurst service station landed him with an assault charge. The 66-year-old divorcee grabbed a female staff member’s hand at a Lyndhurst servo in December as she walked toward the toilets and dragged her toward the men’s room. Dandenong Magistrates’ Court heard that when she broke free, the man told her he would try harder next time. Less than a week later he told the staff member “you just want me to stick it in” when she tried to tell him about a problem with a bowser. The man pleaded guilty to unlawful assault and his defence lawyer said his “joke” had “overstepped the line”. The magistrate fined him $500 and issued a 12-month good behaviour bond. AN ACCUSED drink-driver probably hasn’t found the right way to get ahead. The Taralgon man wrote to Dandenong Magistrates’ Court to say he couldn’t face his hearing for speeding, unlicenced driving and drink-driving because he had “lucrative” work up in the Northern Territory and like anyone else “wanted to get ahead”. The excuse wore thin with Magistrate Greg Connellan, who noted the man had sought a similar delay in April to work in Western Australia and that the offences had been committed four years ago. “I don’t think so” he said as he cancelled the man’s bail and ordered a warrant for his arrest.

Last week to switch! The final countdown to digital-only TV has begun 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.

STOP THE VIOLENCE

Message in the march By CASEY NEILL

Hundreds turned out for the walk through Dandenong. 110096 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS

Kara Dunn and Emily Learmonth champion the anti-family violence message. Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS

Women and men joined together to highlight the anti-violence message.

110096

Victoria Police Southern Metropolitan Region Assistant Commissioner Luke Cornelius said 44 per cent of assaults committed across the state were family violence related. That figure is 9 per cent higher in Greater Dandenong, Casey and Cardinia. “These numbers represent those instances where the screams have become so loud that next door neighbours call police and ask for help,” he said. “Or the injuries that are presented at hospital are so serious they can no longer be covered by makeup or by a cover story about a fall down a flight of stairs.” Mr Cornelius urged the crowd to think about the psychological and physical injuries that go unreported and unobserved. “We all know what fear looks like,” he said. “And yet it’s very clear that we choose to be blind to it.” He said men needed to wake up to themselves. “We all ought to commit to calling

our mates to account, to pulling up the blokes that are telling the off-colour joke, who are speaking in disparaging ways about women,” he said. Anti-violence campaigner Phil Cleary’s 25-year-old sister was stabbed to death by her ex-boyfriend in 1987. “She’d ended the relationship with

isa Bisby and Melbourne Heart’s Philip Petreski. Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Rollo said awareness and support to change community attitudes about family violence would reduce “this insidious crime”. “It’s so important to speak up if you see or know someone is being abused in the home so that we can break the cycle of abuse,” he said. “Together we can demonstrate that violence against women and children is unacceptable and will not be tolerated in our community at any time.”

EVEN bigger than the sausage sizzle queue at Dandenong’s Pop Up Park on 24 November was the line to pledge support for the White Ribbon cause. Dandenong police hosted the White Ribbon Cup soccer tournament and community day to spread the White Ribbon message to never stay silent about violence. White Ribbon Day is held on 25 November each year and is a campaign led by men to reduce violence against women. The Dandenong event included a visit from Matildas player Lou-

a man she didn’t want to be with,” he said. “You must accept, men in the room, that a woman is not your possession and women have every right to assert their independence.” Mr Cleary said men had to stand between women and violent men, and urged women to speak up.

“Don’t ever be scared to go to your brother or your mates or the men in your world and tell them you want their help,” he said. “If my sister had come to me and told me that the man in her life was dangerous, she would be alive today.”

“AT Dandenong Magistrates’ Court we are dealing with 400 applications for family intervention orders every month.” Magistrate Leslie Fleming revealed this shocking statistic to gasps from a packed Drum Theatre following the inaugural City of Greater Dandenong Walk Against Family Violence last Tuesday. “That’s the busiest court in the state,” she said. “Why is that happening in this region? That’s too many.” About 500 men, women and children walked from Dandenong Market to the Drum carrying banners and wearing White Ribbon Day T-shirts, making a united stand against family violence. “In this room I see hope,” Ms Fleming said. “We’re all here about the catastrophe of family violence and we’re all on the same page about how we feel about that.” She referred to a mother of four’s death in her Noble Park home earlier this month. “She was in our court in 2009 but then she’d gone off the radar. “What happened there? What went wrong?” Ms Fleming said agencies richly serviced the region, but she wanted to see more co-ordination between them. “So if someone’s slipped through one service they’re picked up by another,” she said. “We do have strategies. Strategies that work. “We can save people.” But she said women needed to speak up. “If we remove that loaded feeling of shame we bring to the discussion people are prepared to go to court and to report,” she said. “Then the strategies kick in.” Walk participant Janelle echoed Ms Fleming’s plea. She is living through family violence and spoke up. “It’s still quite raw,” she said. “It was actually my own adult children.” Her primary school aged daughter has been through 12 months of trauma counselling and insisted they attend the march. Janelle said the event was an important step toward stopping family violence and hoped to see it return next year.

Seen by solar message

GREATER Dandenong Council is trialing a solarpowered CCTV camera in response to difficulties getting cameras connected to the electricity grid. Engineering services director Bruce Rendall told a council meeting last Monday that the trial had been spurred by “difficulties” dealing with energy companies in installing CCTV. Acting chief executive Jody Bosman told the Journal that the council would evaluate the solar CCTV installed at the Paddy O’Donohue Centre car park, Noble Park, to see if it was “cost-effective and sustainable as a technology”. He said the council would look at the CCTV’s reliability, the cost of the solar panel and energy cost savings. “We’ll have the results early next year to see if it’s an option to go with.”

By CASEY NEILL NARRE Warren South student Ace Bryans has cerebral palsy. He can’t speak, is confined to a wheelchair, and communicates nonverbally via a computer keyboard. But with help from Year 7 classmate William Millett he’s taken home an art award. “I felt bloody proud for all of us,” Ace wrote. The pair and Matthew Milicia from Cheltenham Secondary College won this year’s Wallara Picture This competition. The Dandenong support service for adults with a disability runs the contest to get students thinking about what social inclusion for people with disabilities really means. Judges selected the winners from more than 60 entries from five schools, and they were to receive their awards at Wallara’s annual concert at Robert Blackwood Hall last Saturday. The images will be used to transform Wallara buses into eye-catching mobile billboards. “My heart stopped when I was told by (visual arts teacher Phil) Perryman that we had won,” Ace wrote. “I can’t wait to see our design on the road.” Mr Perryman said Ace enjoyed art greatly. “He produces most works with large textas or paintbrushes in his mouth,” he said. “He has done some works with his hands, but finds this more difficult as he has less mobility and control in this area.” Mr Perryman said the design submitted was derived from ideas from both students. “The artwork in the background

A ROUTINE intercept has led to drug trafficking charges against a 26-year-old Noble Park man. Springvale police pulled over a car on Princes Highway in Springvale about 10.30pm on Sunday 24 November. They called the clandestine lab squad to the scene after finding 100ml of chemicals used to make speed inside the car, as well as 90 alleged ecstasy tablets and about 14 grams of amphetamine.

Early detection to save your life

Kathryne Turton Lane will close the doors of Heidi Rose in January. 110797

End of era at Heidi Rose AFTER 38 years, Dandenong business Heidi Rose will close its doors for the final time on 18 January. Owner Kathryne Turton Lane is holding a huge clearing out sale as she prepares to move on to new ventures. Kathryne thanked her many loyal customers. “I have been delighted to have been able to connect and showcase Heidi Rose’s unique clothing to my customers. “I have been honoured and blessed to have met so many amazing people who have become friends of the shop and myself. “But times are changing, Dande-

nong has changed, the face of retail has changed and it’s now time for me to take a new improved direction for my business in the future. “It is time for me to take a break and to reflect and refine where Heidi Rose will fit in the market place.” Kathryne is not sure how long it will be before she launches her next venture, but assures customers “it will be worth the wait”. She invites customers to stay connected and talk about the future direction of the shop via Facebook or the Heidi Rose web page. To join the Heidi Rose mailing list, email Kathryne at heidiroseclothing@y7mail.com

BOWEL cancer is the most common internal cancer, with about 13,000 new cases each year. Each week about 80 Australians die from bowel cancer. It is the second most common cause of cancer death in Australia. Bowel cancer can be treated successfully if detected in its early stages, but currently fewer than 40 per cent of bowel cancers are detected early. Colonoscopy offers the best chance of early detection and cure. Bowel cancer can develop with few, if any, early warning symptoms. Symptoms of bowel cancer can include bleeding from the rectum or any sign of blood after a bowel motion; a recent and persistent change in bowel habit, for example looser bowel motions, severe constipation and/or needing to go to the toilet more than usual; unexplained tiredness (a symptom of anaemia); and abdominal pain. The risk is greater for people who are aged 50 years and over - risk increases with age - who have a significant family history of bowel cancer or polyps, have had an inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, or have previously had special types of polyps, called adenomas, in the bowel. There is no single cause of colon cancer. Nearly all colon cancers begin as non-cancerous (benign) polyps, which slowly develop into cancer. Bowel polyps are small growths on the lining of the bowel wall. They are common, especially as we age. Polyps are usually non-cancerous. However, some have the potential to develop into bowel cancer in the future.

Dr David Badov, receptionist Gloria and Dr Seong Wong. 93900 Colonoscopy is currently the best way of detecting and the only means of removing polyps from the bowel. About half of all Australians are likely to develop a bowel polyp during their lifetime, but the majority of these remain undetected. If polyps are left untreated, a significant percentage of polyps will develop into bowel cancer. Although polyps are very common, they rarely produce symptoms and usually are discovered by chance at the time of colonoscopy. A National Bowel Cancer Screening Program is also currently in place

for screening all Australian citizens aged 50, 55 and 65 without symptoms with FOBT (faecal occult blood test). With screening, colon cancer can be detected before symptoms develop. This is when the cancer is most curable. Most polyps can be safely and completely removed during a colonoscopy to prevent development of bowel cancer. Contact Direct Endoscopy, Casey Day Procedure and Specialist Centre, 30-32 Verdun Drive, Narre Warren, on 9781 5959.

BUSINESS SOUTH-EAST

Manufacturing makes the grade By CASEY NEILL HALLAM Senior College students got a taste of the manufacturing floor this week in their classroom. Engineers from Norden Conversions in Dandenong helped the teens explore common engineering tasks to solve a real-life problem. Product design manager Haldun Olguner showed them a disability access vehicle that Norden had converted from a passenger van, before getting them to work through some of the engineering tasks he and his team performed to complete the fit-out. The students used weights and scales to simulate balancing and placing seats, wheelchair lifts and other componentry to ensure the front and rear axles did not exceed regulated weight limits. The class was part of the Beacon Foundation and South-East Business Networks (SEBN) Manufacturing XL program. It is designed to improve student awareness of and interest in careers in the manufacturing industry by bringing businesses into the classroom to help teach the curriculum. Duncan McKimm from Beacon Foundation said ‘business blackboard’ classes aimed to help teachers answer the common

question ‘when will I need to know this?’. Businesses use real examples from their work to show how the content students are learning is applied. “You not only teach them that what they’re learning is relevant, you’re also opening their eyes to the career opportunities available locally,” Mr McKimm said. SEBN manager Sandra George said it was important for young people to understand what manufacturing in the south east was all about. “It’s engineering and problem-solving skills like these that drive the industry, which this class really helps get across to young people,” she said. The Manufacturing XL program gives students the chance to tour local manufacturers, complete work placements and potentially gain school-based apprenticeships or traineeships. It’s part of Beacon Foundation’s national Real Futures Generation project, funded by the federal Department of Education, which aims to demonstrate that when businesses and schools work together to help young people start their careers, the outcomes are positive for the whole community. Businesses can contact Mr McKimm on 8668 3085 for more information.

Emotions show real intelligence

Dealership celebrates

WHEN someone yells at Dr Barbara Penson she suffers a physiological reaction. The aggression inherent in yelling reminds the principal of Catalyst Management Consultants of her father. “I grew up in a home where the prime man yelled a lot,” she told a South East Women in Business function last Thursday afternoon. “When a man yells I get upset, my heart pounds, and I know that belongs to my childhood.” Her message was that the key to emotional intelligence is not only understanding emotional responses in others, but also in oneself. “Emotional intelligence is really your own emotions and recognising those in others,” Dr Penson said. Dr Penson specialises in helping reduce conflict and improve relationships in the workplace.

PATTERSON Cheney is celebrating 30 years in Dandenong. The head office on Cheltenham Road employs about 170 people and the company has about 450 staff overall. It was born in Flinders Street, Melbourne, in 1915, when SA Cheney became an assembler of US vehicles. Bill Patterson bought into the business in 1972 and it’s been known as Patterson Cheney ever since. It’s now owned by the Bertalli family.

She highlighted Kevin Rudd as a example of an intelligent person who “lost his position due to his lack of emotional intelligence”. Dr Penson said the keys to using emotional intelligence effectively hinged on being self-aware of one’s own emotions “recognising a feeling as it happens”. She said other keys were managing emotions; being able to motive oneself and delay gratification; recognising emotion in others and handling relationships. “Emotional intelligence underlines everything you do in the workplace.” She said many companies searched for new recruits with high EI rather than a high IQ. “It is a dangerous thing to have someone in the workplace who is totally unaware (of EI).” - Narelle Coulter

OCCASIONALLY a skin cancer can present as a slow growing indentation in the skin surface only. The most common cancer to show itself in this way is the sclerosing (scar like) type of basal cell cancer. These can appear as a slow growing toughened, indented lesion in areas of skin most heavily exposed to the sun – especially on the head and neck. They can often go unnoticed and undiagnosed for a long time as they are not obviously abnormal to the naked eye. Magnfication of these lesions under bright illumination (dermoscopy) by a trained doctor however reveals the correct diagnosis. Fibrosing basal cell cancers need wide surgical excision and sometimes radiotherapy. The earlier they are diagnosed the better.

For further information contact Sun Patrol, 48 Van Der Haar Avenue, Berwick. Phone 9769 3358.

This inconspicuous indented area on the neck had gone unnoticed.

SPORT Demons come true

By JARROD POTTER IMAGINE the childhood football dream. Running out onto the MCG for your debut match, wearing the colours of your beloved team as you burst through the banner. James Harmes is one step closer to fulfilling that fantasy. Harmes, 18, from Devon Meadows, was selected at pick two in the AFL Rookie Draft by the team he’s always supported - Melbourne.

Harmes couldn’t believe he would not only be heading into the AFL system, but also going to become a Demon. “It’s pretty crazy growing up barracking for Melbourne and now that I’m on their list as well, so it’s pretty amazing,” Harmes said. The wily midfielder was training with the Casey Scorpions in anticipation for a year spent in the Victorian Football League, following last week’s AFL National Draft where he went unpicked, so he’s well accustomed to

James Harmes has become a Demon after his selection in Wednesday’s rookie draft. 98532 Picture: JARROD POTTER Casey Fields where he’ll likely play a lot of games this season. He had to use the disappointment of being overlooked in the main draft as motivation to train harder. “It was pretty hard, I was training at Casey and it was pretty hard to get back to training on that Friday night after missing out on Thursday,” Harmes said. “Was just really disappointed and it made me work even harder at the training and I took that disappointment into

training and worked as hard as I could to get a spot this week.” He had talked to Melbourne in the lead up to the Rookie Draft and thought he would be heading there - but to read his name listed among the other draftees and knowing he is now an AFL footballer is still sinking in for the versatile midfielder. “I can’t believe it - it’s crazy - can’t believe it’s happened,” Harmes said. “I spoke to them (Melbourne) yesterday and they said that they had me

in their sights for their second pick, pick 20 or something (19), and they said they’d take me there. “They said they’d take me with their second round pick but they took me with the second pick.” Harmes said he’d love to wear Colin Sylvia’s vacated number 12 - which will become available this season with Sylvia heading to Fremantle - but unfortunately for the Devon Meadows’ maestro, the number has already been taken by new recruit Dom Tyson.

Rangers... boom boom! By JARROD POTTER DANDENONG earned back second billing in the WNBL with a 15-point win over the gutsy Melbourne Boomers. The guards-of-honour Leilani Mitchell (16pts, 10ast, 6reb) and Jenna O’Hea (19pts, 4ast, 9reb) wrestled advantage back from the Boomers after the visitors took a narrow two-point lead at the first break. Dandenong coach Mark Wright praised the efforts of Mitchell and was encouraged by the New York Liberty guard scoring more to open up that aspect of her game. “It’s a big game - that being said and done - I’m still finding my way with the players and what I offer them and what I serve up to them as a coach and Leilani is an exceptional talent and I’ve just got to give her the opportunity to play at the level she can play at,” Wright said. “Just by learning what she does really well and allowing her to take over the game more by herself - when she’s looking to score she’s more dangerous than when she’s just being a feeder... she does that exceptionally well, but being a scorer gives her that other dimension as well.” The Dandy long-bombs started appearing in the second term as Mitchell and O’Hea hit them from wide out to register three each for the match. A 20-9 final term pushed the match Dandenong’s way at last - with Mitchell, Rosie Moult (4pts) and O’Hea sealing the deal with long-range buckets to clinch Dandenong’s eighth win. “They’re a good team - second on the ladder you don’t get that from not being really good,” Wright said. “So from our point of view it’s always good when you beat

In their stride By JARROD POTTER

Leilani Mitchell was in complete command of the Rangers 72-57 win over the Boomers. 111320 Pictures: STEWART CHAMBERS someone above you and from a grind-it-out style of game I’m happy.” Kayla Pedersen (10pts, 11reb) had an exceptional influence on the match, keeping Melbourne’s import Chelsea Poppens (5pts, 2reb) virtually quiet while posting her fourth double-double - all of which have come in a powerpacked November for the Connecticut Suns’ WNBA recruit. “I thought Kayla was exceptional tonight and I’m sure there’s a bit of a WNBA thing

going on in there, but Poppens is an excellent player and I thought Kayla did a great job,” Wright said. Rebecca Allen (24pts, 9reb) and Tess Madgen (15pts, 8reb) had to burden most of the offensive and defensive imitative for the Boomers, who are in desperate need to return Rachel Jarry to the line-up. The 8-3 Dandenong travel across the Nullarbor this week to face the West Coast Waves on Saturday night before their final

home game of the year next Saturday against Sydney Uni on 14 December and the marquee preChristmas match facing Bendigo away on 20 December. “We’re 8-3 - hopefully 9-3 and we’ve got two more games before Christmas - one against Bendigo which is going to be tough - as we try to go into the break with as close to three losses as we can,” Wright said. “It puts us up to second for the moment and we’ve got to bust our rears to hang on to that.”

NOT even a Meg Lanning century could derail Dandenong (3/223) as a stellar knock from Lions’ captain Kelly Applebee helped chase down Box Hill’s 8/222. On a batting-friendly track at Greaves Reserve, Dandenong couldn’t rouse the Megastar from the crease as she went on to bludgeon 122 from 110 balls. The rest of the Mustangs order watched on as Lanning took to most of the Lions’ bowling attack. Julie Hunter (2/23) and Sarah Elliott (2/32) were the only Dandenong players able to halt Lanning’s charge in a battle of the Australian representatives. Lanning batted down the order as her teammates fell around here, before eventually skying one to end her 10th Premier-grade century knock. Outside of Cassandra Brock (28) and Anna Lanning (32), the captain Meg Lanning didn’t receive much help from the Mustangs’ batting order. It would prove critical as Dandenong went about its chase. Erica Kershaw (0) was taken from the crease early by Meg Lanning and it brought together Elliott (50) and Kelly Applebee (97no) to guide the rest of the chase. The Elliott/ Applebee partnership accrued 86 runs before Elliott fell just after her half-century, edging Isabelle Watson (1/26) to the wicketkeeper Kate Dempsey. Applebee took the rest of the required tally in her stride, combining with Laura Croft (27) and Chelsea Moscript (16no) to chase down the runs with five overs remaining. Applebee’s knock included 10 fours and a six to narrowly miss out on her fourth VWCA century. The win brings Dandenong back to third on 17pts and the Lions face Essendon-Maribyrnong Park on 14 December at Greaves Reserve in their last home match this year.

Stay classy Buckley Ridges

Above - Paul Rudd notched his half-century in a fighting knock for Buckley Ridges against Heinz Southern Districts. 111328 Left - In full flight, Nathan King jumps at the crease on a day that belonged to Springvale South. 111327 Pictures: JARROD POTTER

By JARROD POTTER THE sunshine returned to play around the grounds in Dandenong District Cricket Association (DDCA) Turf 1 cricket this weekend, leaving the batsmen in prime position to notch a few runs.

Buckley Ridges v Heinz Southern Dist. WHILE his namesake (Paul Rudd who plays Brian Fantana in the movie Anchorman 2) is currently on tour in Australia promoting his latest comedy, Buckley Ridges’ variant of Paul Rudd (86) was pivotal to pushing the Ridges to 224 from their 76.1 overs against Heinz Southern Districts (0/2). Rudd’s top-order early comrades, Jayson Hobbs (2) and Antonio Greenidge (0) fell quickly. The revival came from Rudd and big Dan Haasbroek (32), knocking in 77 for the third wicket stand as Rudd raised his bat for a wellearned half-century. Haasbroek was trapped plumb in front and this only brought more pain for the Cobras as Suren Ekanayake (63) combined with Rudd for another 94 runs. Rudd’s ‘Fantana-stic’ innings came to a close 14-short of a century as he was rendered LBW and had to vacate Park Oval. By then the Ridges had stabilised and approaching the double-century mark. Another collapse rendered the Ridges all out for 224, after being 4/186 when Rudd departed, as the tail failed to wag. Captain Matt Goodwright (11) was the best of the Ridges’ lower order as Matt Cox (3/24) Jus-

tin Davis (3/53) and Matt Cox (3/24) snared the scalps. Heinz batted out its three overs without issue and will resume at 0/2.

Springvale South v Berwick The rear-guard action of a few gave Berwick (153) something to defend as Springvale South (0/26) ran through the Bears. The Bloods’ new-ball pair Tim Ford (6/62) and Yoshan Kumara (2/58) pretty much bowled the entire innings, snaring eight wickets between them in a display of ruthless attack on the Berwick order. Ford struck like a clock chime - hitting his mark and snaring victims at metronomic intervals. At 2/3, with Ford and Kumara snaring Berwick’s openers on the cheap, it soon turned into 6/84 when Tanner Stanton (9) became victim number three for Ford. The fight back came from Ryan Williamson (34), promoted for his first Turf 1 run this season, and Nirmal Wickramaratne (32) - helping add crucial runs to a lacklustre tally. The captain Jarrod Goodes (21) emerged from the sheds at number 10 to help tickle the ball to the boundary in tandem with Adam Watson (16no) and Cory Bevan (8). This rout was completed by Ford taking his ninth five-wicket or greater haul in the DDCA’s Turf competitions. Nathan King (15no) and Steve Masterson (10no) batted to stumps unfazed with 128 left to attain.

Hallam Kalora Park v Lyndale Jaime Brohier continued his rampaging start to DDCA Turf 1 cricket, belting 104 for Lyndale (7/279) on a day to forget for Hallam Kalora Park. Brohier knocked in his second century of the season with defining support coming from captain Rory Ingram (57), Ciaron Connolly (41), Quyen Pham (30) and Sanjeewa De Silva (34no). There was little Hallam Kalora Park could do but hold on and wait for Brohier to make a mistake - it eventually came as he hit out via Jagveer Hayer (3/41). It leaves a whopping 280 for Hallam to chase next weekend.

Coomoora v North Dandenong North Dandenong’s (181) renaissance of form continued with a competitive tally accrued against Coomoora (3/37), before making significant in-roads to their batting order. Craig Gunawardana (69) was the rock of the innings with strong support lower down as George Russell (33), Jurgen Andesen (12) and Yuri Ryoboshapka (21) put the icing on the cake via the tailenders. The fighting resistance came from Coomoora’s Rob Johnston (6/64) as he ran through the Norths’ batsmen. Luke Wenke (17no) and Oliver Ashford (1no) were the only two surviving Coomoora batsmen on the first day as Andersen (2/17) picked up a pair at the death.

Dandenong West v Parkfield Dandenong West (121) was skittled by a com-

WHAT’S ON this week

bined Parkfield (2/21) effort. Matt Fielding (48) was the shining light of the Bulls’ order while the rest crumbled about him under pressure from Shane Bell (3/29), Steve Spoljaric (2/27) and Matt Aslett (2/24). In reply, Parkfield lost Rob Carr (7) and Tony Payne (0) just before stumps with Andrew Harry (1/12) and Peter Atkinson (1/5) cashing in late in the day.

Rizan selected By JARROD POTTER RIZAN Mawzoon has been selected to represent the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association (VSDCA) in an interleague clash on 8 December. VSDCA Chairman of Selectors Paul Bain announced Noble Park all-rounder Mawzoon was among a team of 12 to take on the Victorian Country Cricket League (VCCL) at Werribee Cricket Club’s Chirnside Park Reserve on Sunday. Mawzoon’s call up is on the back of 19 early season wickets at a miserly 8.84 in his five matches to lead the league’s East/West First XI competition. The match will start at 10.30am.

Panthers’ hunger for prey By JARROD POTTER A TOUGH chase awaited Dandenong on Sunday at Frankston-Peninsula (230) as Australian paceman James Pattinson returned to the Panthers for the Frankston-Dandenong Road showdown. Unable to utilise the tearaway paceman James Pattinson - back into the side as a batsman only, as he recovers from injury - Dandenong coach Ross Woodall leaned on up-and-coming quick Matt Willcocks (4/49) and new-ball pair James Wilcock (2/26) and Justin Butterfield (2/50). Former Berwick spearhead Wilcock found captain Michael McClean (5) edging to Rob Hearn early in the set piece, before Willcocks claimed the rest of the top order as Dale Elmi (17) and Matt Gapes (12) fell cheaply. It’s been a solid start to the season for Willcocks - claiming nine wickets so far in Premier First XI at 12.56 from his four matches. The home side was reeling at 3/38 before a critical partnership formed between Sam Wiese (76) and Luke Walker (49). A 113-run partnership was finally crushed by Willcocks, as the tail wagged another 50 runs onto the total, off the bat of Keirran Voelkl (21), Aiden Wheeler (18) and Glyn Trueman (12), before Dandenong ran through the remaining wickets. Butterfield and Wilcock cleaned up the tail to put the Panthers back in for a little bat before stumps. It left a tricky five-over spell for Brett Forsyth (10no) and captain Tom Donnell (5) to weather, but the openers held their nerve to resume on Saturday with 215 left for first innings points. Dandenong needs to win to keep in touch with the finals bound teams in Victorian Premier Cricket, sitting in 14th place and five-points off eighth. The Dandenong Journal went to print before final results were available.

Dandenong paceman Matt Willcocks rattles off another thunderclap en route to four wickets. 111323

Bulls appear penned in

Phenomenal on collision course By MICHAEL FLOYD PHENOMENAL confirmed his status as one of the country’s most exciting greyhounds with a devastating win at Sandown Park on Thursday night. Having returned to the winner’s list with an emphatic win in the rich City of Casey Cup at Cranbourne the previous Friday, Phenomenal stepped out over the 595m for the first time and proved far too good for an excellent field of middle distance chasers. Beginning well from box 5, Phenomenal tracked Evie’s Entity out of the straight the first time before assuming the lead down the back and racing to a convincing four-length win over Irish import Razldazl Luke. His winning time of 34.09 was extraordinary given the heavy

Chanaka Gunawardana drives strongly for Noble Park. 111326

By JARROD POTTER NARY has there been any love lost between Noble Park and Endeavour Hills in Victorian SubDistrict Cricket Association (VSDCA) action, with the Eagles swooping on the Bulls to leave a 200-run chase this week-end. Noble Park struggled to build critical partnerships and worse still, no one was able to carry on after a start. Captain Dean Edmunds (21), Chanaka Gunawardana (25), Marasinghe Perera (32) and Dhanushka Ekanayake (39) will all wonder what if, had they continued on after getting their eyes in. Endeavour Hills captain Matt Hutchinson (1/16) rotated his five bowlers about to great effect as Richard Saniga (3/31) followed up his unbeaten century last week with the middle order scalps of Perera, Mevan Fernando (13) and Jake

conditions. The win was the 11th of Phenomenal’s 21race career and took his career earnings beyond $39,000. Trainer Jason Thompson has earmarked the Group 1 Sale Cup - Victoria’s richest provincial Cup carrying a $75,000 first prize and the only one with Group 1 status - as the next target for his son of Collision. Earlier in the night, How Seductive announced herself as a greyhound to follow in the upcoming Group 2 Laurels series when she won her third race in five career starts. By Melbourne Cup winner El Grand Senor and out of Group 1 winner So Seductive, the immaculately bred youngster led all of the way for trainer Kel Greenough and will be set for the heats of greyhound racing’s version of the Oaks on Thursday 12 December.

Richardson (2). Wickets fell far too regularly for the Bulls with their biggest partnership earning 41 runs between Dirk Vandergert (16) and Ekanayake (39) from the eighth wicket stand. Ekanayake, Andrew Berman (18no) and Anthony Salomon (7) helped the tail wag to push Noble Park to 199 from 69.5 overs. Getting among the scalps for the Eagles were Chris Periera (2/47) and Shane Peake (2/52) keeping the Bulls from mounting a big tally. From the remaining 12 overs of the day, Noble Park made their task next week one-wicket easier as Justin Merlino (2) was skittled by Salomon (1/6) from his six overs. It left Eagles’ pair Jarrod Russell (6no) and Nick Cigetic (5no) at the crease for this week’s resumption of play.

Disbelief... Endeavour Hills’ captain Matt Hutchinson could not believe this LBW shout was turned down. 111326

MOTORING

Gangsta at the Core By EWAN KENNEDY THE reasoning behind the Chrysler 300 SRT Core is as simple as the car itself. The thinking behind it goes back to the core of buyer preferences - value for money in a high powered machine. A neat $10,000 has been stripped from the price of the standard 300 SRT, dropping it to an affordable $56,000. As it has kept the core values of the car exactly as before, the new model is tagged Chrysler 300 SRT Core. Tellingly the SRT Core is under the price of the lowestcost HSV models. Price trimming of the Chrysler SRT Core has been achieved by giving it cloth trim instead of leather; there’s no heating of the rear seats, though the fronts still get warmed (but not cooled); the drink holders are no longer connected to the air conditioning system so remain at the ambient temperature; and there’s no floor mat or cargo net in the boot. A basic audio system is used, with the number of speakers reduced from 19 to six meaning you will have to spend more time listening to the ex-

haust note of the big Chrysler V8. Sounds good to us! Standard, not adaptive, cruise control is used; you miss out on the adaptive suspension damping system; there isn’t a blind spot monitor (though surely anyone who drives an SRT knows how to set door mirrors?). The rear cross-path detection system is a handy feature but sadly it’s been stripped out. Styling, ah, styling! That’s what the Chrysler 300C is all about. Though the importer doesn’t like it to be called the ‘Gangsta’ car I’ve got some bad news - everyone who chatted to us about the new Core product used exactly that term! The Chrysler 300 SRT8 Core has 20-inch alloy wheels in a twin-five-spoke design. There are ‘Hemi 6.4L’ badges in red and chrome on the front guards and a red ‘Core’ badge on the bootlid. Core is offered in eight paint colours: Gloss Black, Ivory tri-coat pearl, Billet Silver metallic, Jazz Blue pearl, Granite crystal metallic pearl, Deep Cherry Red crystal pearl, Phantom Black tri-coat pearl, and Bright White.

The Core’s cabin has black seat trim with white stitching and ‘SRT’ is embroidered into material. There are piano black bezels and matte carbon accents on the instrument panel and centre console. All the important powertrain parts remain as in the standard Chrysler SRT8. The active exhaust system remains as does the excellent

launch control system that really gets the big beast moving with just the right amount of wheelspin. The really interesting thing is that the 300C SRT8 Core is lighter than its full-house big brother so presumably has better performance in a straight line. This American muscle machine sounds great, though a little more volume would be

appreciated at low to moderate throttle openings. It’s a bit sad when AMG Mercs and Bentley Continental Speeds provide bigger sounds than a Chrysler Hemi. A five-speed automatic transmission is used instead of the more modern eight-speed unit now on the rest of the 300 range. But if you’ve got 631 Newton metres of torque at your dis-

Chrysler 300 Core is a remarkably affordable American high-performance sedan.

posal you really don’t need that much more assistance from a bunch of extra ratios. Awesome stopping power is provided by the big Brembo disc brakes. Throttle response is all-but instantaneous and the automatic reacts quickly to the driver’s demands. Trundling up and down the M1 motorway between the Gold Coast and Brisbane at 115 km/h we saw fuel consumption average a hard-to-believe eight litres per 100 kilometres. That’s partly due to the COD (Cylinder On Demand) feature that cuts four cylinders under light load. That’s right, our Chrysler 300 SRT Core was a four-cylinder car! Consumption leapt in urban driving, being in the mid teens most of the time. In the country and having a go it was getting towards the 20s. Road grip is high but this is a big heavy car so you don’t get the same cornering enjoyment as you do from the best of the small hot hatches. Ride comfort isn’t too bad, but rough roads certainly let you know the low-profile tyres aren’t able to cushion the car all that well.
