Death toll drop By XAVIER SMERDON THE number of people being killed on Brimbank’s roads has fallen by almost half, indicating that they are the safest they have been in several years. The latest TAC road safety statistics were released last week showing that all but one suburb in the West had seen a drop in road-related fatalities. Brimbank had a drop of 44 per cent when compared to last year and now has a five-year average of seven deaths on the municipality’s roads. Wyndham had the biggest decrease after two horror years where nine people were killed consecutively in 2011 and 2012, to see a decrease of 56 per cent.

The figures, which compare the 12 months to October this year, also indicated that Melton had seen a reduction in fatalities of 50 per cent from 2012 to 2013. When comparing this year to 2011 the drop is even more dramatic at 63 per cent. Maribyrnong also had a drop of 25 per cent. The only suburb where the number of road deaths increased was Hobsons Bay, which went from just one in 2011 to three this year. Chairman of RoadSafe Westgate, which advocates for safer roads and driver education in the West, Jim Gid-

dings, told Star a higher police presence was behind the shift. “Two things have contributed to this reduction and they are a greater community awareness of issues like speeding and hooning, and a greater presence from the police,” Mr Giddings said. “There is no doubt that when we have a more visible police presence that people do slow down.” Mr Giddings said that the message of road safety was slowly sinking in to young drivers. “Slowly but surely we are seeing results, but it’s a lot of hard work,” he said. “We need to continually work at it to bring the wider community on board and to maintain their interest.”

Mr Giddings said the West had a long way to go before it would be able to shake its image as a hoon and dangerous driving hotspot. “I don’t want to paint a bleak picture of the West, but when you look at the impoundment figures, a higher proportion of those are in the Western Suburbs, and particularly Melton,” he said. “They are not going down, but what that tells us is that we have more police on our roads and they are catching more dangerous drivers. “Hoon activity is continuing and we need to be more than vigilant.” Hoon drivers can be reported to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

MORE than 70 residents have unanimously voted to fight plans to build a commercial precinct within Cairnlea. They made the vow at a meeting organised by the group No Industrial Zone for Cairnlea, on 2 December at the Cairnlea Soccer Club. At the meeting, Western Metropolitan Region MP Khalil Eideh listened to residents’ concerns about a Places Victoria proposal to

build more than 146 townhouses, 50 apartments and a commercial zone on land bordered by Cairnlea Drive and Ballarat Rd. More than 60 people have signed a petition against the redevelopment which will be delivered to Brimbank City Council. Places Victoria has already dropped plans to include an industrial zone on the site, increased the proposed residential area and provided more recreational space. At the meeting, resident

Peter Brandecker described Cairnlea as “an oasis in the Western Suburbs”. A key worry of protestors has been a plan to remove 300 sugar gum trees to make way for the development and instead plant 750 new trees. A Groundwater Quality Restricted Use Zone has been applied to the land on the south-east corner of the former factory - and part of nearby Ardeer – due to residual groundwater contamination in the area.

BRIMBANK police have busted yet another two cannabis grow houses, seizing hundreds of plants in the process. Brimbank Police Inspector Chris Gilbert said at around 4.30 am on Saturday 23 November, Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) crews attended a house fire in Cleveland St, St Albans. “Police also attended and the MFB personnel discovered evidence of a hydroponic cannabis crop,” Insp Gilbert said. A later search of the property located approximately 100 cannabis plants and an illegal electricity bypass.” A couple of days later around 170 plants were seized under warrant from a home in Annetta Court, Albanvale as part of Operation TAXA,” Insp Gilbert said. Earlier this year, Star revealed the state-wide TAXA operation has executed more than 50 search warrants across Brimbank in 12 months. The taskforce has also interviewed 33 people in relation to trafficking and cultivating cannabis within the area. Acting Inspector Dave De Francesco from the Drug Taskforce told Star many of the homes searched under Operation TAXA were cannabis grow houses with crop-sitters, electrical bypass systems installed and rooms converted especially to grow cannabis. Insp Gilbert said illegal electrical bypass systems also posed dangers to surrounding residents, as they could cause fires without warning - much like the case of a Cairnlea crop house discovered in June. A blaze which broke out at the Eaglehawk Circuit house took firefighters took almost 30 minutes to bring under control and caused “extensive fire, heat and smoke damage throughout the entire property”. “Police have repeated a warning about the dangers of cannabis grow houses and encourage anyone with information about suspected grow houses to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000,” Insp Gilbert said.

Robbers hit the streets By ALESHA CAPONE BRIMBANK police have stepped up action to cut down on the rising rate of street robberies in the municipality, often committed by youths high on drugs and alcohol. Brimbank Police Inspector Chris Gilbert has told Star street robberies account for a “substantial amount” of all robberies recorded in th area. Insp Gilbert said officers believe high unemployment levels and increasing levels of amphetamine use have been causing the street robberies. Victims of the robberies have

often been leaving public transport hubs at night. Insp Gilbert said because many train stations on the Watergardens line are now staffed by protective services officers (PSOs) during evenings, offenders have been committing robberies in the street rather than at transport locations. “We’ve had some people robbed after getting off NightRider buses very late on weekends and that’s virtually when there’s no people around at all and businesses are shut,” he said. Insp Gilbert said arrests have already been made in relation to the street robberies.

He said police believe teenagers and young adults, possibly taking drugs or alcohol, have been committing some of the crimes. “You know when they’re committing an offence which results in big jail time, just to steal one mobile phone or small amount of cash off someone, it’s not worth it and they haven’t put much thought into it,” he said. Insp Gilbert said since Brimbank recorded a 25 per cent rise in robberies between September 2012 and October this year, the rates dropped during November. Insp Gilbert said many residents in Brimbank relied solely on public

transport so police have been working to address the vulnerability of victims and the causes of the crimes. Insp Gilbert said a police campaign to crack down on anti-social behavior, such as public liquor consumption in the Sunshine CBD has been successful across the past few months. He said police have since begun been dedicating more hours, including foot patrols, to various suburban business centres throughout Brimbank. “We’re already spending time at Watergardens and in St Albans and certainly we’ll be in Deer Park a bit more as well,” Insp Gilbert said.

Commuter solutions MORE than 200 new car parks could be constructed for the Keilor Plains train station if a planning application is approved. Brimbank City Council has received a proposal from the Public Transport Corporation (PTC) to build approximately 220 new commuter car spaces at 2/336 Main Rd West in St Albans. City development director, Stuart Menzies, said the planning application has requested permission to add new car spots to the south of the existing Keilor Plains car park. The PTC has estimated the project could cost around $700,000. The proposal to install new car spaces comes after last month when Brimbank City Council released its Transport Priorities Paper (TPP). The document has been designed to help guide the council’s future advocacy to the State Government and other agencies. A section of the TPP focuses on the need for more car parks at stations located along the Sunbury line. “There is a significant shortfall of commuter parking at train stations,” the report said. “Cars are inappropriately parked in neighbouring streets and on reserves, causing damage to council and railway infrastructure. “This practice is also causing amenity issues and at times, restricting access ways and making areas unsafe for other users and pedestrians. “A review of the supply of commuter parking facilities at all railway stations in Brimbank is required, with a plan for increasing the available car parking to be developed.” The TPP also said the Zone One ticket fare border for Brimbank trains should be extended beyond Albion station. The report said this would make public transport more affordable, spread the commuter parking demands across more stations and create a fair ticket system comparable to the rest of metropolitan Melbourne.

Road rage assault

Rekiah remembered in mural’s colours By ALESHA CAPONE A POIGNANT memorial honouring a Sunshine North woman killed in an act of domestic violence has been installed at the Brimbank Youth Resource Centre. Rekiah ‘Kiah’ O’Donnell was just 22 years old when she was allegedly shot by her ex-boyfriend during October. Brimbank City Council and its White Ribbon Working group have supported two of Ms O’Donnell’s friends, Bethany Joy and Daniel Robinson, who wanted to create a tribute in her memory.

Mr Robinson has painted a mural which says RIP KIAH and includes the White Ribbon motto of ‘Australia’s Campaign to Stop Violence Against Women’. The artwork has been erected at the Brimbank Youth Resource Centre in St Albans. The mural was launched with a barbecue to mark the annual White Ribbon campaign, which aims to eliminate male violence against women. In a post on the event’s Facebook page, Ms Joy encouraged other females experiencing family violence

to seek help. “Kiah would never let anyone forget and she’d let everyone know about it if this had happened to one of her friends so we will do the same,” Ms Joy said. “We won’t let your story fade out and or disappear, we will continue to spread your story in the hope that we will help change lives of others via your story.” The CEO of Women’s Health West Dr Robyn Gregory, said they have experienced a 35 per cent increase family violence referrals from police across the past year.

This has led to WHW delegating resources away from helping longterm clients to assist the emergency response team, she said. “We’re having to make some really tough decisions about who gets help and who doesn’t,” Dr Gregory said. “We are really struggling to meet increasing demand for family violence services would appreciate anything the Government could do to assist.” For help, call Women’s Health West on 9689 9588 during business hours or after hours on 9373 0123.

POLICE have appealed for witnesses to come forward after a male was assaulted following a road rage incident on the Western Ring Rd in Sunshine West last month. Police said they believe the Mooroolbark man was driving a Mitsubishi Triton ute south on the Western Ring Road at around 12.30pm on 28 November. The 48-year-old driver was allegedly cut off by a dark-coloured Hyundai Excel. Both motorists pulled into the emergency stopping lane between Ballarat Rd and Boundary Rd after a verbal altercation. Two people allegedly got out of the Hyundai and punched the ute driver in the face before fleeing the scene. The victim drove to a service station where he collapsed unconscious and was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Police are seeking a clean shaven man, in his late 20s to early 30s, around 175cm tall with a thin-to-medium build and short, dark hair. Anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Ticket bill not so fine By ALESHA CAPONE A KEILOR MP has said train commuters will be disadvantaged under a new fines system if Myki ticket machines break down at railway stations. Natalie Hutchins has told parliament a State Government bill allowing on-the-spot fines of $75 on trains, trams and buses would be unfair to people who arrive at a station to find the ticket readers are not working. Ms Hutchins spoke about an incident which occurred at Keilor Plains Train Station during October to make her point. Ms Hutchins said she and other commuters discovered none of the Myki machines at the station were working in the morning peak hour. She said the hundreds of travellers present were advised by Metro Trains to get off at another station and swipe their Myki cards. “I was advised by the guy in the call centre that passengers needed to get off the train and swipe their Myki

cards and that the train would not wait for them,” Ms Hutchins said. “I can tell members that hundreds of commuters at my local station were absolutely apoplectic on their way to work that morning, and I know for a fact that some of those people were fined when they reached the city loop stations.” A Public Transport Victoria spokesperson said they were aware the Keilor Plains machine experienced “an intermittent issue that affected device availability on the day in question”. He said ticket inspectors would investigate when told machine malfunctions have led to passengers travelling without a valid ticket. “Sometimes, however, a passenger may not raise the issue of machine malfunction at the time of interception and will do so after receiving an infringement notice,” he said. “Where this occurs the functionality of the machine is investigated as part of the infringement notice review.”

No illegal crackers BRIMBANK City Council has encouraged residents to dob in anyone in possession of illegal fireworks. The council has encouraged people who witness others setting off illegal fireworks contact Victoria Police immediately on 000. In January last year, Tarneit resident Carlos Rodriguez died after

sustaining head injuries when fireworks exploded in his face. Hours before his tragic death, police had raided a St Albans shop which allegedly sold the firework which injured the father-of-two. “Serious penalties, including fines and imprisonment exist for their use.”

Youth art to combat graffiti A MURAL has been painted at a Deer Park shopping centre to help prevent graffiti and tagging. Eight young residents, under the guidance of mentor Marcus Diaz, spent five days creating the artwork at Brimbank Shopping Centre. The mural stands at around 30 metres in length and runs along the wall of an undercover car park at the shopping centre. The mural came about after a discus-

sion between the centre and Brimbank Youth Services concerning the issue of graffiti within the community. The Brimbank Youth Services’ Street Art program, which has been running for the past two years, consulted with young people to come up with the idea for the mural. The Brimbank Shopping Centre manager, Pearse Coleman, said the mural was a great chance for youth to show off their skills to the public.

“The mural was an engaging opportunity for young people from the local community to use their creative skills in a more constructive way,” Mr Cole said. “It has been a great inclusion to the car park and has transformed what was a bland concrete wall into a piece of art that represents youth culture and the city they live in.” Brimbank City Council’s spends around $210,000 of ratepayer’s money on graffiti removal every year.

By ALESHA CAPONE ARDEER and Sunshine North residents affected by severe noise pollution and vibrations have called for the Regional Rail Link tracks to be constructed below the ground in their suburbs. Several residents have contacted Star and questioned why the Regional Rail Link Authority (RRLA) will not build a cutting from Anderson Rd to Fitzgerald Rd, like the one in Wyndham Vale further down the line. “Our community, which has the highest residential density of anywhere along the line, is told that it cannot have a cutting,” Ardeer resident Anna Parapouras said. “While a wall may address

noise, it will not address vibration that causes our doors and windows to rattle every time a train goes past.” Sunshine North resident John Kodric and other protestors gathered at the Ardeer Train Station last Wednesday with a fake noise wall they created. The group designed the prop to demonstrate their opinion the proposed corten steel noise walls - which the RRLA has proposed building along Forrest St, Fraser St and Ridgeway Pde – would be inadequate. “From the early days of the project, the government and RRL has been well aware that the noise levels - both passenger and freight - in our area are already exceedingly high, at 92 decibels maximum and over 60 decibels in an hour at the Kel-

lie O’Connell Kindergarten, Ridgeway Parade,” Mr Kodric said. “Our community has said time and again that it does not want ugly walls to deal with the noise from the increased rail noise as a result of the regional rail project,” said Geraldine Brooks from the Fix the Links community group. A RRLA spokesperson said they would provide “scientifically-tested noise barriers which will help to block the main source of rail noise”. “Further, a cutting does not satisfy the noise policy principle of best-fit solutions, which requires RRLA to take account of what is practicable, reasonable and cost effective, and is not a feasible noise treatment option for this area,” she said.

Kathleen’s keen drive to succeed By ALESHA CAPONE YOUNG Kathleene is a high achiever no matter whether she is swimming laps or solving sums. The 12-year-old Burnside Heights resident has won the Caltex All Rounder Award at Catholic Regional College in St Albans. The award acknowledges students for their all-round contribution to the school and the community. Kathleene, in Year 7, has been involved a school liturgy team, represented her house and the school in cross country, swimming and athletics and served

on the Year 7 Level Council. She also represented the school at La Trobe University’s Tournament of Minds and a Maths Games Day. Kathleene said she was “really shocked” to win the Caltex All Rounder Award but has enjoyed being involved in so many different activities. “It’s just getting to know new people and getting a new experience,” she said. Kathleene also came second in a school contest to see which pupil could read the most books. She read around 160 books for the competition in an effort which hel-

ped her class secure the college Reader’s Cup. In addition to her literary leanings, Kathleene is a member of the Brimbank Swimming Club and keen runner. “It’s just so much fun. Like swimming, there are just so many different things you can do,” she said. Her duties at CRC have included showing visiting Year 5 pupils around the school and giving them advice about starting secondary college. “They said: ‘Is it scary?’ And I said: ‘It’s not scary because there are a lot of teachers to help you’,” she said.

Natalie Cunningham has made a documentary about Ror, a talented teenage hip-hop artist Picture: DAMJAN JANEVSKI and songwriter. 111423

Doco is a roaring success By ALESHA CAPONE THE story of a talented young South Sudanese songwriter is the subject of a new documentary from filmmaker Natalie Cunningham. Ms Cunningham’s previous documentary, shot in Sunshine, focused on her grandmother’s memories of growing up in Greece and immigrating to Australia. Ms Cunningham’s latest doco is about 17-year-old hiphop artist Ror, who arrived in Australia as a refugee at the age of nine with his family. ‘Ror’ is up for two awards including Best Postgraduate Production 2013 from the Victorian College of the Arts, where Ms Cunningham studies. Ror said he was “pretty sur-

prised and excited” when Ms Cunningham asked him to be in her documentary. He collaborates with other young people and producers such as Motley and Dan West to create songs at the Rising High Recording Studio, in a program offered by Yarra City Council. “I discovered I could write my own lyrics and it was a way for me to tell a story, mainly about my life and the world around me,” he said. Ms Cunningham spent three months following Ror with her camera after his “incredible and reflective lyrics” caught her attention on a compilation CD. “You find the most extraordinary stories in the most random places when you’re not even looking,” she said.

“You don’t often have a 16-year-old guy writing lyrics about not standing for violence against women.” Ms Cunningham said as she and Ror became acquainted they discovered they had both attended Sunshine North Primary School, but in different years. “The first day I went along to the Rising High Studio and Ror was there collaborating on some lyrics, I was just so happy to be there and seeing that,” she said. ‘Ror’ will screen with other VCA works at ACMI on Friday at 8.45pm and Sunday at 6.15pm and 9.15pm.

Rail link on track By CHARLENE MACAULAY THE Regional Rail Link (RRL) project will be going full steam ahead over the summer holidays to take advantage of lower commuter numbers. The $4.8 billion project will reach a major milestone on 22 December with the opening of two new platforms at Southern Cross station and the project’s first section of dedicated V/Line tracks. This means trains on the Geelong line will have a clear run to Southern Cross and won’t have to wait behind metropolitan trains. Following this, a construc-

tion blitz from 28 December to 19 January will help the next stages of the project begin to take shape, including: - The revamping of Footscray and Sunshine train stations, including new platforms on the Irving St side of Footscray train station; - The removal of the Anderson Rd level crossing; and - The demolition of the old Nicholson Street bridge and the installation of the new bridge. “With Regional Rail Link on budget and ahead of schedule, passengers are going to progressively start seeing benefits well before the project’s completion,” Public Transport

Minister Terry Mulder said. A combination of shuttle train services and replacement buses will operate along the Sunbury line while the works are carried out. Metro will also run an amended timetable across most metropolitan lines from 22 December to 26 January to accommodate the construction works. For full details on all road and rail closures, maintenance, renewal works and information on replacement bus services can be found on www.regionalraillink.vic.gov.au or www.ptv.vic. gov.au

Schools shut by drips By NATALIE GALLENTI-BREKALO A CAROLINE Springs primary school was hit by callous thieves last month and forced to shut its doors. St George Preca Primary School was the target of thieves who stole water meters, leaving the school high and dry. The school and the Catholic Education Office confirmed the closure last week. One parent told Star the school was closed on Monday 25 November. The parent also said this was

the second time classes were interrupted because of similar thefts. This latest incident comes only months after Coburn Primary School was thrown into disarray when thieves vandalised and stole water meters and pipes on the school grounds. Students and staff were forced to use neighbouring amenities after the school was left without water in July, while some parents chose to bring their children home for the day.

At the time Cambridge, Coburn and Watts Residents Association president Nathan Miles said it was “disgusting” that thieves would target a children’s primary school and leave the school without water. “It is such a stupid and selfish act and as a result hundreds of kids have been affected as well as the dedicated staff at the school,” Mr Miles said. Melton Police recently called for public assistance saying water meter thefts continue to be a problem

across Melbourne’s West. Detective Senior Sergeant Barry Jenks said while a number of offenders had been charged in relation to a spate of thefts, they continued to occur throughout the municipality and neigbouring areas. He said scrap metal dealers are refusing to purchase these items and it is hoped this will result in making it less attractive for offenders to steal them. Anyone with information should contact Melton CIU.

Commuters feel platform pain By NATALIE GALLENTI-BREKALO GORTON MP Brendan O’Connor has joined the growing list of local politicians to call on the State Government to complete construction of the Caroline Springs Railway Station. “Caroline Springs is one of the fastest growing communities in Australia, yet it is a community with some of the worst access to public transport in Melbourne,” Mr O’Connor said last week. Work had started on the construction of the station but was shut down by the incoming Coalition Government following the 2010 State Election. “If the Coalition Government had continued to build the Caroline Springs station that had been started by the previous Labor Government, Caroline Springs would have a station by now. Yet, because of the decision by the Coalition Government to shelve this project, all we have is a road to nowhere.” Meanwhile other local politicians have called on the Napthine Government to “come clean” on how fare increases will affect them. Kororoit MP Marlene Kairouz said over the last three years, fares on the Sunbury line had increased by more than 20 per cent and commuters deserved an explanation. “Three years ago Kororoit was promised a quality public transport service but once in office the Liberals abandoned public transport for an $8 billion dud tunnel in the inner city. “By contrast, Victorian Labor has outlined a plan to transform the metro rail network by doubling the size of the city loop and adding five more stations.”

Pupils the power behind pedal project By ALESHA CAPONE STUDENTS and teachers at Overnewton Anglican Community College are racing towards the future with some innovative environmentally-friendly vehicles. Pupils from the school recently took part in the RACV Energy Breakthrough in Maryborough, which had over 300 entries from schools across the state. Overnewton teacher Tim Shovelton said four Year 9 teams and a senior team, who studied an elective

on sustainable travel and technology called Racing for the Future, participated in the contest. The school entered the Human Powered Vehicle (HPV), Try-athlon and Energy Efficient Vehicle (EEV) categories. “It’s a real-life learning opportunity for students so they have a meaningful experience where they have a successful outcome or have to deal with whatever issues happen along the way, no matter what happens,” Mr Shovelton said. Year 10 student Kevin and his fa-

ther David Semmens were involved with the project. “With the support of parents, friends, sponsors, and the community, Overnewton hopes to improve their future with the RACV Energy Breakthrough,” Kevin said. Year 9 pupils Tessa and Charlotte, from the college’s Taylors Lakes campus, spent 24 hours riding laps on a bicycle as part of the competition. They also had to make a presentation about the project to a panel of judges.

“I was to look at the construction and safety of the bike and how the bike was constructed, what it was constructed with, what types of metal were used and safety aspects, such as why there was a seatbelt on the bicycle,” Tessa said. The girls, both 15, said they were overwhelmed with joy when they finished the cycling course. “We were so relieved and happy and over the moon,” Charlotte said. “We were glad our hard work had paid off and it was totally worth it.”

A SPATE of impounds on Melton roads last month has left police questioning driver behaviour once again. In one incident a 21-year-old male from Roxburgh Park had his Ford Fairmont sedan impounded on 20 November after he was observed deliberately losing traction turning from Melton Highway into Gourlay Rd, Hillside, and was then clocked travelling 110km/h in a 60km/h zone. A 23-year-old male from Laverton had his Holden Calais sedan impounded on 18 November after being detected at 118km/h in a 70km/h zone on Hopkins Rd, Rockbank. Meanwhile a 28-year-old male from Kurunjang had his Holden utility impounded after he was observed doing a burnout leaving an address in Darlingsford Boulevard, Melton, on 17 November. The male performed the manoeuvre in front of an unmarked police car, leaving approximately 35 metres of skid marks on the road surface. All three vehicles were impounded for 30 days and offenders incurred almost $800 each in infringement notices. And a 23-year-old probationary driver from Kurunjang will be charged on summons with a number of offences after an incident on 24 November in Scott St, Melton. Police believe the man had an argument with his girlfriend and then deliberately drove his vehicle into three separate fences causing considerable damage. The bill is estimated to run to several thousands of dollars, and his Commodore sedan was extensively damaged and is unlikely to be repairable.

Big heart of a small band By ALESHA CAPONE

Former Melbourne Cup-winning jockeys Jim Johnson and Midge Didham visited the Picture: JOE MASTRROIANNI Children’s Ward at Sunshine Hospital. 111396

Race for funds EVERYONE in the West has been urged to race along to a fundraising day for the Children’s Ward at Sunshine Hospital. The 2013 Western Health Community Raceday at Flemington Racecourse will be on Saturday 14 December. Free children’s activities at the event will cater for all ages with outdoor games, arts and crafts and pony rides. Attendees will also enjoy eight races, alongside guided tours of the Flemington Heritage Centre and the racecourse. Western Health Foundation Trusts, Foundations and corporate relations manager, Si-

monne Michelle-Wells, said the fast-growing population in the West has led to high demand for children’s health services. “This year the funds raised from the raceday will benefit the Children’s Ward Appeal,” she said. “The Children’s Ward at Sunshine Hospital is more than 30 years old and will receive a significant upgrade in 2014 through the $1.1 million appeal. “The upgraded Children’s Ward will have a dedicated family room complex, a High Care Unit, isolation (negative pressure) room, baby bathing facility and a Day Procedure

Recovery Unit.” Last week, two former Melbourne Cup-winning jockeys Jim Johnson and Midge Didham visited young patients at Sunshine Hospital. The Emirates Melbourne Cup Tour ambassadors won the race during the 1960s and ’70s. The veteran jockeys were accompanied by the Melbourne Cup during their visit. On Saturday, the gates at Flemington will open at 11.50am, with the first race at 12.50pm. For further information contact Danny Crabb at The Western Health Foundation on 8395 8061.

PETER Kearney is in A Very Small Band but he has a big heart when it comes to sharing music with young people. For the past three years, Mr Kearney has been teaching in the Loose Studios program offered by Brimbank Youth Services at St Albans. Every Saturday, he works with teenagers to educate them about drums, bass, guitars, keyboards, sound equipment, music software, recording and songwriting. “Developing confidence is definitely something we see a lot with teens who come into the program,” Mr Kearney said. “Often they come in and say, ‘Can you teach me to play that song?’ “When they learn, it makes their day, and to see them smile when they get it is really something else.” This weekend, youngsters from the Loose Studios travelled to Bundoora to record an EP at a professional studio. Mr Kearney said he developed his passion for music as a teenager. “I was 14 when I discovered Kiss. It really excited me,” he said. Nowadays Mr Kearney plays with a few music groups but says his favourite is A Very Small Band, whose first album ‘In the Poor House’ is on iTunes. “We play fun rock music and it’s with my two mates, I think that’s the best way to make music,” Mr Kearney said. “For the first album I recorded all the instruments myself and got guest singers in, and then later I got my best mates

Qantas to cut 1000 jobs AUSTRALIA’S major international air carrier has announced plans to cut at least 1000 jobs across the next 12 months. Qantas issued a statement last Thursday which said they were expecting an underlying loss before tax in the range of $250 to $300 million, for the six months ending on 31 December this year. The announcement comes after Qantas last year committed to sacking 400 workers from Tullamarine and hundreds more at Avalon. Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said he and the board

would also face a pay cut and no 2014 financial year bonus. “The outlook for the second half of FY14 remains volatile and, given the uncertainty in global economic conditions, fuel prices and foreign exchange rates, it is not possible to provide further guidance at this time,” a Qantas statement aid. “We will do whatever we need to do to secure the Qantas Group’s future,” Mr Joyce said. “The challenges we now face are immense – but we will

overcome them and we will continue to build a stronger and better Qantas for Australia. “Our competitors in the international market, almost all owned or generously supported by their governments, have increased capacity to pursue Australian dollar profits, changing the shape of the market permanently.” Mr Joyce said government help, if offered, could enable the airline “to keep competing effectively on a level playing field”.

Finally, we’re ready to race ABOUT 3000 people are expected to enjoy the festivities of the Werribee Cup this weekend with the General Manager of the Racing Club giving a “one million per cent” guarantee that it will go ahead as planned. Ross Kendell told Star live music, fashions on the field, marquees and, of course, horses, would make the day a community event to remember. While controversy has followed the Werribee Racing Club and particularly their signature event recently, Mr Kendell said he was confident that

Sarah - who coincidentally shares a first name with Ms De Bono - said she was thrilled by the opportunity. “We got a great response from the audience, everyone cheered and clapped and apparently some people cried,” she said. “The whole experience of meeting and performing with Sarah was something to be excited about, having a chance to perform with someone who is such a role model and an amazing artist was fantastic.” “She also said to never stop singing, if it’s what you love doing, then you need to just keep doing it no matter what.”

NO DEBT..! ... it’s what we all want..!

The Cup was originally planned to go ahead in November but concerns about the track forced the event to be postponed to this Sunday. Following glowing reports from jockeys and trackwork riders, Mr Kendell said there was no doubt the track would offer a great day of racing. “We’ll be having eight races on the day, which is just the perfect amount,” he said. “The track really could not be in any better nick.” For more information visit www.werribeeracingclub.com. au

prices according to the town or suburb in regional Victoria can give buyers a more detailed and useful snapshot of what is happening. So, too, whether it was a house or unit and how many bedrooms it had. For example, while the median price for a three bedroom house in Torquay was $585,000 in the year ending September 2013, in Bendigo it was $308,000 and in Colac it was just $200,000. The differences in apartments and townhouse prices are

FOR those buying a home in regional Victoria, the big attractions are often the lifestyle and affordability. However regional Victoria is a very diverse region with large price variations so house price data which merges all sales in regional Victoria are not always helpful. While median house prices are useful for analysing property market growth, a few particularly high sales in the larger towns can skew results for the entire region. So breaking down

equally dramatic. The median price for a two-bedroom apartment was $415,000 in Geelong – more than double of a two-bedroom townhouse in Traralgon, where the median was just $206,000. Suburb by suburb information about median prices according to property type and number of bedrooms for the 12 months to September is now available free on the REIV website.

BUILDERS SET TO WELCOME PERMIT CUTS

ESTHER LAUAKI

BUILDERSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; headaches could be relieved under new building standards announced last week. Builders will no longer need to apply for planning permits to build lower height boundary walls on new homes, thanks to a new Victorian Coalition Government initiative. The move aims to cut some of the red tape to save builders and families time and money, boost house affordability and create reforms that align regulatory standards with todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building practises. Minister for Planning Matthew Guy announced in a statement that under the new reformed building standards, boundary walls of new homes or extensions will have further setbacks and greater heights allowed without the need for a permit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Coalition Government continues to redefine planning and building controls for Victoria by delivering common sense reforms that drive better outcomes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These reforms will save time and money for builders, councils and Victorian families as they build their new homes,â&#x20AC;? Mr Guy said. Mr Guy said the new rules will be included into Victoria Planning Provisions and align the law with current building practices while cutting back unnecessary red tape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is about bringing our planning processes in line with modern building practices and expectations among home buyers saving everyone time and money,â&#x20AC;? Mr Guy said. The average height of a boundary wall allowed without a planning permit will be increased from 3.0 to 3.2 metres under the reform.

The maximum height of boundary walls is unchanged at 3.6 metres. Neighbours will be notified of any application to exceed boundary wall average or maximum heights, as per existing requirements.

The increase to boundary wall setbacks will allow for adequate fascia and guttering, and the boundary wall height change will enable builders to use â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;waffle podsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for laying a concrete slab on the

ground promoting efficiency and reducing waste, meet homeowner desires for higher 2.7 metre ceilings rather than 2.4 metres, and allow the construction of garages under the same roof line as the house.

Lots start from $200,000 for about 337 squares, to $255,000 for about 500 squares. The Orbis sculpture which marks the entrance to the estate was inspired by Spanish artist and sculptor Joan Miro.

Awards FOR EXCELLENCE 2013

MASTERPLANNED DEVELOPMENT

winner

MARRIOTT WATERS VILLAWOOD PROPERTIES AND MARRIOTT FAMILY CREATING a genuine sense of community and place is the idea behind the Marriott Waters development in Lyndhurst. The joint venture between the Marriott Family and Villawood Properties is the winner in the UDIA Masterplanned Development category. The partnership has taken what was a flood prone problem site and a run of the mill development plan and transformed it into an innovative masterplanned design with interconnecting wetlands. Marriott Waters is now a highly sought-after community, with many

different housing choices for residents. The sustainable development includes 27 hectares of wetlands and parklands, recycled water as well as access to transport, education, fibre optic network, sporting facilities, retail outlets and a residents’ club. The site is located in a regional ‘low spot’ with a significant external catchment from the north, east and south. Creatively designed with extensive wetlands, there is a network of walking and cycling paths, playgrounds, picnic and barbecue facilities, unique public art and sculptures, the exclusive

residents’ only Club Marriott and the new Marriott Waters Shopping Centre. The design focused on achieving a network of roads, footpaths and shared paths to provide residents and visitors with safe, attractive and well-connected roads and paths linking the key elements of the estate. The vision for Marriott Waters was for high quality contemporary house designs and the design of the shopping centre precinct with its main street theory, complements the open space created by the wetlands.

RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OF MORE THAN 250 LOTS

winner

MITCHELL’S RUN DACLAND PTY LTD MITCHELL’S Run is a development which successfully integrates with the natural landscape surrounding it. The site in Doreen is the worthy winner of the Residential Development- more than 250 lots category. The motto of ‘A Real Sense of Place’ perfectly describes the new community, which is characterised by picturesque views and informal parkland. From the entrance to the development, among parkland and river red gums, it is clear the focus of Mitchell’s Run is to establish an informal residential development with a focus on nature. Aboriginal scar trees, creek reserve,

undulating topography and views to the ranges have been retained in the development, allowing the surrounding landscape to provide the character of the estate. The developer, Dacland, has ensured that no residential lot is more than 300 metres from any number of the estate’s parks and open spaces and has been designed to link with neighbouring estates. Mitchell’s Run is pedestrian friendly from the front entrance to the network of quiet street and parks, and linkages are proposed with future developments to the north and south. A diverse mix of lot sizes (ranging

from 300 square metres to 2500 square metres) attracts a range of home buyers and encourages a wide range of building styles. Each home must meet a 5-star energy rating as standard from the commencement of Mitchell’s Run. The architectural styles are reflected in the objectives of the Mitchell’s Run Design Guidelines, focusing on diversity of materials and building styles. The estate is centrally located and is a key link for several north-south collector roads and public transport links for Doreen and surrounding suburbs.

Awards FOR EXCELLENCE 2013

RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT 250 LOTS OR FEWER

commendation

OAKTREE RISE BERNLY INVESTMENTS PTY LTD OAKTREE Rise estate is a unique offering in the property market, providing home buyers with the opportunity to build sustainable homes at the centre of an established rural township. Set in the picturesque suburb of Narre Warren North, the estate consists of 149 elevated residential lots, a boutique retail strip and community hub constructed astride t he restored Troups Creek and new Central Park. The estate also provides local retail, active recreation opportunities and sustainable transport options servicing not only new residents, but the greater community of Narre Warren North.

HIGH DENSITY

Prior to the estate’s development, there was no clearly defined town centre in Narre Warren North. The development was instrumental in the realisation of local planning policy set out in the Narre Warren North Township Strategy. It is these aspects and many others that have seen the estate awarded commendation in the ‘residential development 250 lots or fewer’ category. The estate was designed with a key aim of blending the development into the existing township of Narre Warren North, while preserving and enhancing the existing feel.

During the planning process, community consultation was held with local residents, council and the developers. The feedback from the consultation process helped inform the overall design of the subdivision, gained community buy-in to the layout of Central Park and shaped the successful relocation of the heritage oak trees, from which the site gets its name, along the Avenue of Honour. In recent years, Narre Warren has experienced strong population growth across all markets and Oaktree Rise has been well received, with a waiting list for future releases.

joint winners

WATERVIEW AND THE EDGE APARTMENTS

FIFTY ALBERT HAMTON FIFTY Albert’s unique design echoes the eclectic nature of the South Melbourne skyline. The High Density Development category joint winner is a 30-storey, mixed-use development which offers its residents a luxurious lifestyle in one of Melbourne’s most prestigious South Melbourne locations. Fifty Albert is a mixed-use development comprising 282 residential apartments, which range in size from 50.5sqm to 164.5sqm. This includes 84 one-bedroom apartments, 190 two-bedroom apartments and eight three-bedroom apartments - with two of the latter being double-storey.

VIEW APARTMENTS PTY LTD Fifty Albert’s apartments all feature luxury fittings including stainless steel appliances and designer European appliances in the bathrooms. The kitchen consists of timber veneer with stone benchtops and splashbacks, while all apartment robes feature a grey mirror finish. Hamton Property Group, the developer, is focused on selecting great inner-city locations in Melbourne, and Fifty Albert is no exception. The building is located perfectly on the eastern entry to Albert Road from St Kilda Road, one of Melbourne’s most characteristic urban boulevards, within a rich and vibrant precinct.

WATERVIEW and The Edge Apartments defied all odds to be named joint winner of the High Density section of the annual UDIA awards, despite the initial opposition it faced. These apartments achieve a balance between density and liveability and capture both the city and water views. Each building entrance offers an expansive and well-decorated lobby area which creates an ideal first impression and adds to the comfort and liveability of these apartments. Throughout the construction of the apartments, developers gave huge consideration to the value of views from the towers. The layout and form strongly engage

views such as Harbour Park, Edgewater Lake and Jack’s Wood. It is conveniently located only a short walk to many Maribyrnong amenities. The site enjoys excellent pedestrian and cycling accessibility, with easy access between ’the apartments’ and key points of interest along Edgewater Boulevard. Extensive links along the Maribyrnong River are also a major feature of these apartments, including paths to Pipemakers Park and Highpoint Shopping Centre. Connections to the Federation Trail are located less than 100 metres down the road with a high quality bicycle track also close by.

Awards FOR EXCELLENCE 2013 HIGH DENSITY

commendations

YARRA POINT MIRVAC STRATEGICALLY located and wellestablished in the heart of the Melbourne CBD, Yarra Point apartments have been recognised for their excellence with a commendation award for High Density. Located on a 5200 square metre site, Yarra Point houses a diverse mix of bedroom dwellings and has sealed its place as one of Melbourne’s most elite waterfront communities. Following an eight-year break, Mirvac re-entered Melbourne’s apartment market with a bang when it developed Yarra Point apartments. The towers are now home to almost 2000

38C AVENUE PROJECTS residents and in addition to its convenient location and unforgettable views of the city, the towers boast extra privileges such as a residents lounge, business centre, gym and herb and vegetable garden. Yarra Point is well connected to various popular precincts throughout the city, including South Wharf, South Gate and the East side of the Crown Entertainment complex. Throughout the design process of Yarra Point, a number of components were considered such as tower form, urban context and building footprint.

AVENUE Projects has touted 38 Camberwell Road as its benchmark marketing tool since its completion in May 2013, and not without reason. The building debuted on the market in 2011 and was sold to a mix of owner-occupiers and investors, with over 70 per cent of the apartments sold prior to construction in early 2012. The Hawthorn East development is situated on a prominent corner between Camberwell Junction and the vibrant shopping centres of Glenferrie and Auburn Road and offers 53 apartments over five levels. Each apartment enjoys high quality finishes, expansive indoor and outdoor living spaces and an

envied location. The design also includes basement car parking for all units to minimise the impact of parking on the site plan, with access via Auburn Grove rather than the busy Camberwell Road thoroughfare. Avenue Projects has also integrated disabled access into the building’s design while also using architectural variation to break down the length of the building in both streetscapes. In addition, the development has enhanced the public realm through maintaining the alignment of the Auburn Grove footpath and retaining the existing trees adjacent to the site.

Places Victoria We create great places to live, work and visit through urban renewal across the state.

Awards FOR EXCELLENCE 2013 MEDIUM DENSITY

winner

AFFORDABLE DEVELOPMENT

winner

205 GIPPS COMMON EQUITY HOUSING LIMITED BANBURY VILLAGE CEDAR WOODS PROPERTIES LTD BANBURY Village is an exciting new chapter in the remarkable history of Footscray. Property developer Cedar Woods has exceeded the local community’s and authorities’ expectations, in creating a vibrant village that is one with the surrounding community. The site was formerly used by the Olympic Tyre and Rubber Company and subsequently, South Pacific Tyres as its head office and factory, and presented an opportunity to deliver on state and local planning urban consolidation objectives - leading to the top prize in the Medium Density category, and a commendation

URBAN RENEWAL

for Urban Renewal. Banbury Village has established itself as the premier residential address in the inner west and has also been recognised by the former Department of Planning and Community Development as a notable example of industrial design heritage conversion. It features a major park that is unparalleled in the inner west, and key urban design principles include rear loaded dwellings on major thoroughfares to improve streetscapes, walk-ability and parking; strong design elements; and way-finding signage at key decision points.

winner

A 59-UNIT apartment and townhouse project at 205 Gipps Street Abbotsford that blends social and private housing has been hailed a resounding success by tenants and owners. Using a co-operative housing model, notfor-profit developer Common Equity Housing Limited invests profits from the sale of the project’s 34 private apartments to ensure its 25 social housing apartments are affordable to low-income tenants. The result is five storeys of high-quality apartments in three neighbouring buildings - the penthouse storeys tastefully set back behind a reinforced heritage facade of the former boot factory/warehouse. Deciduous trees in the complex’s landscaped internal courtyard shade the apartments

URBAN RENEWAL

in summer and allow more natural light in winter. At least half of the social housing dwellings are made available to people on the public housing waiting list. Six disability apartments were bought by the Transport Accident Commission and Summer Foundation. The rent is linked to income; residents pays no more than 25 per cent of their pension/ income on rent, or more than 75 per cent of the market rate for one and two bedroom apartments in the area. The private apartments were sold despite a saturated market of more than 1,500 available apartments in Abbotsford and resistance from buyers investing in a social housing setting.

commendation

ISLINGTON SILOS BLUE EARTH GROUP BANBURY VILLAGE CEDAR WOODS PROPERTIES LTD ISLINGTON Silos, a residential conversion of the former James Hood Malthouse and associated silos, in Collingwood’s iconic Islington Street has won the Urban Renewal award for 2013. The complex is protected by a Heritage Overlay in the Yarra Planning Scheme, and the statement of significance for the buildings attributes their historical value to their function and age, rather than aesthetic or architectural value. The Silos offer 21 three-bedroom apartments over 11 storeys. At ground level is a gymnasium and an apartment with a large terrace. Each of the 10 levels above provides two apartments separated by the central lift core.

Two impressive glass penthouses are perched at the ‘crown’ of the silos, creating the illusion of floating forms. The soft curves of the building feature large glass walls, capturing stunning views and lending an ethereal juxtaposition. The spacious floor plans allow for generous airflow and an enviable 360 degrees vantage, ensuring apartments are filled with constant stream of natural light. Although not within an activity centre this site is very close to significant concentrations of commercial, recreation and entertainment facilities along Victoria Parade, Hoddle Street, Brunswick Street and other strip centres. It is also very convenient to a variety of transport routes, schools and community facilities.

DEVELOPER Cedar Woods had a responsibility to ensure the values and features of one of the western suburb’s best urban renewal sites were integrated into the final design and benefited the local community. Banbury Village, Footscray, integrates seamlessly with the surrounding area, while also delivering a variety of housing to meet market expectations. To achieve this, Cedar Woods had to deal with, and manage a host of issues including: a harsh interface on three sides; the condition of the heritage buildings and the extent of the hazardous materials to be dealt with; and a range of

buyer profiles and the specific needs of an eclectic community. The feedback Cedar Woods has had from its customers has been overwhelmingly positive, leading to many referral and repeat sales. The developer believes this is of enormous benefit in the long-run with referral sales, positive local council and government relationships, a high level of staff satisfaction through taking pride in their work and – of course – an enhanced corporate reputation. All of this has helped establish Banbury Village as the premier residential address in Melbourne’s inner-west.

JUDGES AWARD

winner

HIGHETT MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT, WOLWORTHS (FABCOT PTY LTD)

DANDENONG LOGIS ECOINDUSTRIAL BUSINESS PARK PLACES VICTORIA AND MELBOURNE WATER DANDENONG LOGIS has transformed a contaminated, disused site into an environmental showpiece. The 154-hectare industrial business park has received this year’s Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Environmental Excellence award. The Dandenong Treatment Plant in Dandenong South closed in 1996, leaving behind highlycontaminated soil. In November 2005, the State Government announced a $150 million, fouryear land reclamation project to transform the 180 hectares into a bustling commercial and residential hub. The first land at LOGIS South, to the south of Greens Road, was released in 2009 and LOGIS

North land, between Dandenong Bypass and Greens Road, was first released in 2011. There’s a regional wetland for stormwater treatment, rainwater tanks, native plants and mature trees to promote birdlife and wildlife access to Dandenong Creek, Class A recycled water to every lot, solar hot water and natural ventilation, and mulch made from recycled shipping pallets. There are more than 20 hectares of open space for recreation and LOGIS is the first industrial development in Victoria to introduce T5 energy efficient street lighting. Posts feature twin lamps that activate when the roads are busy and reduce to one active lamp when road usage decreases.

AN EXCELLENT model for future mixeduse development, the concepts used in this particular site have not been seen in the Awards for Excellence submissions before. The emerging trend of apartments above the retail environment has been done well with a clear delineation between residential and retail. Circulation and access have been well handled

with the apartments having separate entry foyers and the loading facilities are entirely within the ground level built form. Rubbish zones were relocated to a concealed section and creating a landscape buffer to adjoining residences. Of particular note were the storage cages which, unusually, were located on the same floor as the apartments, with obvious benefits for residents.

MELBOURNE WATER RECOGNITION AWARD

(FABCOT PTY LTD)

LANDSCAPE AWARD

winner

NAPOLI PARK PROVIDENCE PASK GROUP

NAPOLI Park is not only beautiful; it is a multifunctional space of 1.8 hectares which has been provided early in the development of the Providence Estate. It is infused with many contemporary Australian elements. It is broken up into active and passive areas with a mix of walking paths through gardens, seating, protected spaces and opportunities for community and family gatherings.

MEDIA AWARD

winner

MARRIOTT WATERS VILLAWOOD PROPERTIES VILLAWOOD has worked hard to redesign a very basic stormwater system with a ‘bottom of the drain’ retarding basin, into a well integrated wetland and floodway system. They have taken drainage from two catchments beyond the site and created a major feature of the estate which now forms part of a larger walking path system. Delivery of Class A recycled water was brought forward

through the developer’s negotiations with the local water authority. A temporary above ground tank was installed as a holding tank for residents during peak times until the supply of recycled water became a permanent facility. Over 20% of the site has been devoted to the waterways and parks, the wetlands significantly reducing the risk of flooding in the low-lying area.

While containing all the appearances of a rich, exotic and layered environment, Napoli Park is actually designed to minimise maintenance, for example galvanised steel roofing treated in ‘Liquid Rust’ paint creates a themed effect while being a simple installation. It features art by mosaic artist Davia McMillan, which sit comfortably in the environment.

winner

TRACT TRACT produced a study for The (Melbourne) Magazine which measured the liveability of Melbourne’s suburbs, according to 14 criteria. The article produce very

It’s all bang on By CHARLENE MACAULAY THIS December, Victoria University is serving up science with a bang. The 2013 VU Science spectacular family night will showcase the Professor Science Troupe who will perform explosions and fire tricks along with other science demonstrations. The free show this Thursday will run for 70 minutes and will be followed by hands-on science activities for parents and children.

VU Lecturer in Foundation Studies Nick Athanasiou said the showcase was designed specifically to inspire students and generate a love of science. “It’s great for many families because often this is their first experience with science,” he said. “Their usual reaction after the first experiment is amazing. We work with the audience to give them a hands-on experience, which is much more appealing than traditional high-brow science events.”

The troupe is made up of VU students studying for a degree in science and education and the show provides them with teaching and presentation experience which is invaluable to their education. The troupe has been travelling to schools around Victoria and interstate for the past five years, promoting science through a range of amazing demonstrations. The VU Science Spectacular will run this Thursday from 6pm at the Footscray Park campus, building L, level 1, room 14.

Victoria University lecturer Simon will take part in this week’s science spectacular. 111524 Picture: JOE MASTROIANNI

Helen and her dog Musiu are happy to be together again. 111549 Picture: JOE MASTROIANNI

Keep love alive By XAVIER SMERDON PETS are important members of the family, so when they are sick and facing an uncertain future, their owners want to give them the best care possible. For one Werribee woman, however, the best care for her best friend was just simply unaffordable. Helen Kolasinksi is originally from Poland and arrived in Australia from France in 1950 with her husband before working as a wool inspector in a lab in Williamstown. Since then she has lived a full life, and she has always been surrounded by her pets, from German shepherds to cats until she found her maltese cross shitzu, Musiu, four years ago. His name means teddy bear in Polish and Ms Kolasinksi said she dubbed him that because his hair was fluffy when she first got him. Her husband passed away 10 years ago and her beloved sister who came from Poland to be close with her passed away just two years ago, making her friendship with Musiu even more important. So last month when she found a lump on his back near his tail, she took him straight to the vet. It was found that he had perineal hernia and needed an operation,

which was going to cost around $1000. “I’m on a single pension and I just couldn’t afford that much money,” Ms Kolasinksi said. “I don’t even have that much money for myself.”

He’s all I have in my life now … Helen Kolasinski

Luckily the Melbourne University and Veterinary Clinic got in touch with the Pet Medical Crisis Fund who agreed to use their small pool of donations to fund the operation. Musiu is now running around Ms Kolasinksi’s house and he is even able to jump up on her lap to keep her company, which has made her very happy. “He’s all I have in my life now,” she said. “There are a lot of good people in the world.” Donations to the Pet Medical Crisis Fund can be made online at www.petmedicalcrisisfund.com.au or via PO Box 360 Hawthorn Road, Caulfield, 3162.

Get ready for office party time OFFICE Christmas parties can be awkward and boring when everyone gravitates toward the people they already know. However, the festive function is an opportunity for management to create unity among colleagues and ultimately improving interoffice relations. Playing games at the office Christmas party may seem cheesy and juvenile but it helps co-workers become more comfortable with one another and creates a fun atmosphere.

Add humour to the party with some funny employee awards. Co-workers will work together to decide who is worthy of each prize and have fun joking about everyone’s quirks in the office. Write up and print off some award certificates on a computer in advance, including one “for always being late to meetings” and “for never being in her cubicle.” Have co-workers nominate

one another, and then proudly present awards to the workers with the most votes. “Who Am I?” is an exciting game that will get the whole office laughing together as they guess who their character is. Grab a handful of sticky notes and scribble down a famous celebrity or well-known character onto each one. Everyone gets a note stuck onto their back, and they must ask their colleagues questions about who their person is.

The game ends when everyone has correctly managed to guess the character on the note on their back. Discover which person in the office is the biggest film buff with a Famous Movie OneLiners game. It’s a quiz about quotes from well-known movies.

Prepare a list of movie quotes in advance, such as “I’ll be back” from The Terminator. At the party, read each of them out loud and have everyone write down which movie they think that quote is from. For an interactive experience try a game of Employee Trivia.

A few days before the party, send a memo to the office workers attending the party asking them to email a few bits of trivia about themselves. Trivia should relate to Christmas in this case. Create a sheet whereby workmates need to match trivia to the name of their colleagues.

Cash plans for Christmas this figure as the overall holiday spending limit. 2. Set a spending limit for each area of holiday spending. Create a holiday spending worksheet then run through the list of holiday expenses gifts, decorations, holiday foods, in the first column, and set a budget for each area of spending.

4. Tweak the budget to cover any instances of overspending. Don’t panic if there is overspend in one of the categories, just scale the spending back in another category to make up for it.

1. Determine what can be afforded. Look over finances, and determine how much money there is for holiday-related purchases. Set

3. Track spending throughout the season. Keep a running total of purchases in the Actual Spending column of the worksheet. Then,

Some valuable tips * Big gift lists tend to lead to big bills. Whittle the list down to the people who matter most. Send Christmas cards to everyone else.

* It’s easier to spend money during the holidays, but it’s also easier to earn money during the holidays. Find ways to cover Christmas expenses as they arise so there is no need to play catch up later. For example pick up extra work or work overtime. * When working with a tight deadline it’s easy to overspend. Start Christmas shopping before the holiday decorations even go up, and there will be plenty of time to shop around for the best deals.

F How would you rate your FB: cooking skills? c CP: Pretty average in the C kitchen. I leave a lot of the cooking to my husband. He is c so much better than me. FB: What is your signature dish? CP: Have to admit I do make a nice shepherds pie and the family loves it. Never any leftovers. FB: If you could only have one more meal, what would it be? CP: A nice bowl of pasta with a simple tomato sauce. I could eat pasta every day. Must be the Italian coming out in me. FB: What is your favourite food? CP: Chocolate, chocolate and just a little bit more chocolate. Yummy but not too healthy. FB: What is your favourite drink? CP: In summer I do enjoy a nice refreshing Mai Tai. Discovered these a few years ago in Vietnam.

FB: Which five people would you most like to invite to dinner? CP: I think I would invite Michael Buble – seems like he has a good sense of humour and he might even break into an impromptu song. Olivia Newton John – she is just so inspirational to so many women. Liz Hayes – would love to hear all about her adventures behind the scenes with Sixty Minutes. Would love to invite Hugh Jackman, not only would he make good conversation, he’d be nice on the eye as well. And last but not least, my husband Peter. Wouldn’t want him to think he was missing out on anything. FB: Do you have a kitchen tip for us? CP: Biggest tip in the kitchen is clean as you go along.

A picture of the most glorious looking cake caught my eye in That’s Life magazine the other day and, on reading the recipe, I couldn’t believe how simple it was to make. So I whipped one up while staying at my mum’s place and it was so moist and crumbly and divine, we couldn’t stop eating it. It’s a great standby for afternoon tea when friends pop by in the lead up to Christmas, or serve it warm on Christmas Day with caramel sauce and a scoop of ice cream, as a delicious (but less time consuming) twist on the traditional plum pudding. It’s suitable to freeze, and as it’s an oil-based cake, there’s no mucking around with electric beaters or creaming butter and sugar.

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

EASY APPLE CAKE 2 cups plain flour 2 teaspoons each baking powder and ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon bicarb 1 cup raw caster sugar (I used regular white caster sugar) 400g can slice apple pie fruit 2 eggs ¾ cup rice bran oil (I used canola oil) 1/3 cup each sultanas and chopped pecans (these are optional) Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius (160 degrees fan forced). Line a 22 cm round cake pan with baking paper. Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon and bicarb into a bowl. Add sugar, apples, eggs and oil. Stir mixture until well combined. Fold through sultanas and pecans. Spoon mixture into pan. Bake for one hour and ten minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer. Cool in pan for ten minutes before turning onto a wire rack. Dust with icing sugar, or serve warm with caramel sauce and ice cream. CARAMEL SAUCE: Place one cup each thickened cream and brown sugar and 60g butter into a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until butter has melted. Cook a further four to five minutes or until thickened slightly. This is the last Food Byte column for the year.

Sport Exum’s in demand Sunshine & Western Region Sports Club Inc.

Don Deeble

Rising

star By LIAM TWOMEY SPORTING fans around the world are starting to catch on to the talents of Western Suburbs’ local Dante Exum. The Seabrook resident and Keilor Basketball Association junior is touted as a top five draft pick if he decides to nominate for next year’s NBA draft. If not, he will have a host of college recruiters desperate to secure his services. However, Exum’s astonishing exploits on the court are coming as no surprise to members of the Sunshine Western Region Sports Club.

The 18-year-old is one of hundreds of young athletes from the Western Suburbs who have been nominated for the club’s prestigious Don Deeble Rising Star Award which is sponsored by the Yarraville Club Cricket Club. Each month, one nominee receives $1000 towards achieving their sporting goals while at the award’s grand final, the overall winner is given $5000. On top of that, two runners-up also receive $2500. Sixteen athletes were nominated from June 2012 to November 2013 and are all in contention for the upcoming grand final which will be held in January. Sunshine Western Region Sports Club vice-president Barry Watson is rapt with the standard of nominees the award attracts. “We all are thrilled that he (Exum) is continuing to climb the ladder in basketball,” Watson said. “What an extraordinary effort if

he gets into the top five draft picks. Cecil (Dante’s father) and the family will be so thrilled.” Exum isn’t the only former Don Deeble Rising Star Award winner to be turning heads around the world. Point Cook’s Rachel Jarry secured a WNBA Title with the Minnesota Lynx this year while Werribee’s Jess Cameron is one of Australia’s leading female cricketers. “Rachel and Jess have been outstanding and have great careers ahead,” Watson said. “We all hope and wish them well. The Western Suburbs are producing some outstanding talent and with programs like what’s happening at Maribyrnong (College), let’s hope we keep seeing these youngsters with these talents continue to come through.” Watson also highlighted the amazing contribution of Yarraville Club Cricket Club in providing sponsorship for the award.

“Yarraville Club Cricket Club is unique,” he said. “What other club do we know of that would support such a great cause? “We know the parents are so appreciative of this support and with many athletes travelling the globe, the Yarraville Club Cricket Club contribution cannot be underestimated.” To nominate a junior athlete for the Don Deeble Rising Star Award, contact starsport@starnewsgroup. com.au or call 9933 4800. “We certainly encourage all athletes, coaches and parents to email their respective sons’, daughters’, friends’ or kids’ achievements (age bracket 13-20),” Watson said. “There are a number of ways, even if not nominated for a monthly award, that they can be helped. “Any athlete travelling and having to pay costs can be supported by our club.”

Jake’s beating the odds By ADEM SARICAOGLU TAYLORS Hill boxing sensation Jake Ellis has never had to work as hard as he has been over the past six weeks. Ellis has been keeping himself busy in preparation for ‘Once Upon a Time in Sunshine II’ - an event he’s not only organising as promoter, but also fighting in himself. Six days a week Ellis will get some training done in the morning before suiting up to run some errands for the promotion.

After a long day of gym visits, poster runs, paying bills and ticket drop offs, Ellis then puts his gloves back on once more and resumes preparations for his third professional bout. “It’s just hard in the sense that if I was to promote, that’s all I’d do and if I was to only fight on the night then that’s all I’d do, and obviously I have my school and all that which is another added pressure,” Ellis explained. “But when you’re doing both it’s very hard. “You’re pretty much, from nine

to five, dressed in nice attire going around doing promoting errands, and then once five o’clock hits you have to glove up and become a boxer. “It is very mentally draining and stressful, especially thinking that I’m trying to prepare for a fight when all this other stuff is coming through. But I’m sure it’ll all pay off.” So far undefeated in the ring, Ellis has developed a keen ambition to master the promoting game as well. Ellis’ previous event, his first ‘Once Upon a Time in Sunshine’ promotion,

drew nearly 500 people back in August. While that night proved a raging success, Ellis hopes this time around it will be even bigger. “I was shy by about 30 or 40 people from the joint being full,” he said. “I pulled about 500 people, so there was a lot of real positive feedback from everyone. “It was by far my best promotion I’ve ever done, and that’s why I’ve actually felt confident enough to both promote and fight on the same night.”

Ellis’ fight will be the semi-main event of the evening, however his opponent for the bout has not yet been confirmed. “I don’t know who I’m fighting, which really doesn’t mean a whole lot to me anyway,” Ellis said. “I don’t really watch or do homework on my opponents anyway. I believe I’ll have an answer for anything that’s in front of me.” ‘Once Upon a Time in Sunshine II’ will be held at the Italia Club in North Sunshine this Friday night.

League goes national By ADEM SARICAOGLU THE long and bitter National Premier League saga that has plagued Victorian football has finally been resolved, with Football Federation Australia confirming it will go ahead next season. The FFA stepped in to resolve the long-running dispute between Football Federation Victoria and a group of co-signatory clubs - confirming on Friday the go-ahead for the NPL nearly four weeks after clubs were told to prepare for the Victorian rollout at a meeting in mid-November. The agreement has also put an end to Supreme Court proceedings between the FFV and the co-signatory clubs. “The NPL is an integral part of our national elite player pathway and a hugely important reform of the semi-professional tier of Australian football,” FFA CEO David Gallop said in Friday’s statement. “FFV and its clubs have worked through many issues and agreed on an NPL model that’s now a benchmark nationally in many areas.” South Melbourne’s Nick Galatas welcomed the news on behalf of the clubs. “The clubs have always wanted Victoria to be part of the NPL in 2014 and now we’ll apply for licences, work as quickly as we can to meet the criteria and get on with implementation,” Galatas said. “The clubs are looking forward to being part of the NPL which promises to deliver outcomes that are in the best interests of football in Victoria.”

Under the newly-revised model, the implementation of a potential two-division structure will depend on the number of successful applicants. As proposed by the clubs at

the November meeting, allocation of the successful applicants will be subject to their placing at the end of the 2013 Victorian Premier League and State League competitions. There will also be no promotion or relegation between the NPL and State League clubs for three seasons. However, NPL clubs will be

Sharks eye prize

In the

Doghouse

By ADEM SARICAOGLU

KEVIN HILLIER

For the love of the game IS loyalty dying at local football level? I ask this because of a few events I have heard about in recent weeks. One involves a playing group getting the coach the sack because they did not like his style. Another involves a player who agreed to play for one club, who got him employment, then reneged when offered more money by a rival club. I believe he kept the job. Player power to this degree is not healthy for the game, when they can dictate terms, walk out on contracts and control the big picture at a club, it is akin to the lunatics running the asylum. Clubs that allow this to happen are going to pay the price in the future. THE Bulldogs made the news last week after making a few changes to the structure of its cheer squad. While I understand the emotive reaction from the long-standing members of the cheer squad the club has every right to take control of how the cheer squad is run. The cheer squad belongs to the club not any individuals. Gary, Lorraine and David have done a great job over a long period of time but it is not their cheer squad. They have not been sacked from the club. I no longer host the president’s lunch nor the best-and-fairest, which I did for over a decade. Look at the history of current president of the club Peter Gordon, he is a great example of putting his love for the club above anything else. It might be a cliche, but the club is bigger than any individual. I HAVE to say I was surprised to hear Ryan Griffen named as Bulldogs captain last week. I did a function with him on Monday night and he gave no indication what was about to be announced the next day. ‘Griffo’ is an interesting choice because to be honest, I don’t see him as a natural leader, but obviously Brendan McCartney sees something else. There is no doubt he leads by example on the field as he is one of the elite players of the game. In retrospect I didn’t think Matty Boyd was a natural leader either and I was wrong there, hope I am again. One thing Ryan does have is a very balanced outlook on life and a realistic view where football sits in the order of importance. He loves nothing more than getting away from the city and going fishing. GREAT to see two terrific football people appointed to representative coaching roles last week. Former Bulldogs champion Brian Royal will coach the AFL Vic Metro team to play the Peter Knights-coached Vic Country next year. The Metro side will be chosen after the Vic Metro league play off at Visy Park on 29 March. The WRFL team in that series will be coached by Brett Jacobs from the Sunshine Kangaroos who was named WRFL Coach of the Year. THE Rotary Club of Altona City has their 12th annual golf day coming up on Friday 28 February, at Kooringal Golf Club. The day is very popular so it is advisable to get in early if you want to play or sponsor the day which raises funds for Very Special Kids and other Rotary projects. For more details contact Charlie Montebello on 0412 257 723 or email charles.montebello@bigpond. com. The Rotary Clob of Werribee is also holding a charity golf day on the same date at Werribee Park and you can get all the information from Graham Roper ropergh@optusnet.com.au or 0403 437 349.

TWELVE months ago Hillside was a footy club hell-bent on getting back into Division One of the Essendon District Football League. Now the Sharks are all about making sure they stay there, after blitzing Division Two on their way to an inaugural flag in 2013. Hillside was almost flawless under Steve Kolyniuk this year, dropping just one game on its way to Windy Hill - where the Sharks beat Moonee Valley in the Division Two grand final. However the club’s off-season since that historic day has so far not been so smooth. The Sharks faced some minor financial woes that Kolyniuk says have now been dealt with by new club president Rob Coletta and his board. However some of those woes have also had an impact on the field, with big name 2013 recruits Aisakie O’hAilpin (Albury) and Ryan Hargrave (Deer Park) both opting to move on. “We had a few off-field issues which needed to be addressed and they have been - so that put us behind the eight ball a little bit,” Kolyniuk said. “After having a successful season clubs then go and start speaking to players and offering them more money, and the difficulty at the moment is just maintaining the core of players we had last year.”

O’hAilpin was clearly Hillside’s most damaging player in 2013. His presence both in the ruck and around the ground proved vital in all of Hillside’s big games, prompting Kolyniuk to admit the big Irishman will be hard to replace. “It was a little bit of a surprise with Aisakie, but look he wants to play with his brother (Setanta),” Kolyniuk said. “He’ll obviously be a loss. He basically rucked all year unchanged and he’s just a competitor, so I doubt if anyone in local footy would be able to replace someone of his ilk.” Filling the void left behind by Hargrave proved to be no issue, with the Sharks securing young key defender Matthew Wallace from Keilor. For now though it seems, on paper at least, that Hillside will return to Division One with a weaker list than that of 2013. While Kolyniuk still plans on injecting some more quality into his line-up, he is willing to admit he might not have as much firepower at his disposal this time around. “If I was judging it on where we are right now, then I’d say last year’s (list) was stronger,” he said. “But in saying that, I think our side last year would’ve pushed for finals no problem in Division One.”
