DIS

Real estate range By XAVIER SMERDON THERE was a $1.05 million difference between the most expensive and cheapest homes sold in Wyndham this year, according to new figures. Statistics provided to Star by the Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) show that the most expensive house was sold in Hoppers Crossing and went for $1.175 million. The Leatherwood Drive property was sold by Barry Plant on 4 May this year after being on the market for five years and being handled by seven different agencies. An impressive structure, a description of the house said that it took three years to build, boasts crystal chandeliers and more than 700 downlights. There are seven king-sized bedrooms, a solid timber staircase, four bathrooms, five toilets and enough undercover parking spaces for 14 cars. Rick O’Halloran from Barry Plant Tarneit sold the house and told Star in a different suburb it would have fetched an even higher price tag. “A lot of people would say, ‘why would I wan’t to pay that much for a house in Hoppers Crossing’, but I just think, try and live in something

as palatial as this on the other side of town,” Mr O’Halloran said. “It would cost more than the selling price just to construct a house like this in some other suburbs.” Mr O’Halloran, who currently holds the record for the most expensive houses ever sold in Tarneit, Truganina and Hoppers Crossing, said the Leatherwood Drive house was bought by a man from Blackburn. “He said that he was never going to be able to buy something this big on his side of town, so he sold his house for $850,000 and it was 20 per cent of the size of this house,” he said. According to the REIV’s data, the current median price for a house in Hoppers Crossing is still only $285,000, making the Leatherwood Drive property’s sale price even more impressive. Only three other houses, all of them in Point Cook, broke the $1 million mark this year. By contrast the cheapest house in the municipality was sold in Bellfield Court in Wyndham Vale for just $121,000 on 2 February. The fire damaged house was followed closely by a house in Kookaburra Ave in Werribee which sold for $160,000 on 30 January. CEO of REIV, Enzo Raimondo, said house prices were likely to grow at a slower rate next year.

THE streets of Wyndham have lit up again this Christmas season showcasing some of the best lights and decoration displays in the West. And Point Cook’s Santander Crescent is one of the most popular places to visit. Siblings Cameron, left, and Breeanaa put some finishing touches to a tree. 112129 Picture: DAMJAN JANEVSKI

KEVIN HILLIER

Who stole 2013? OK, who stole 2013? I know we say it every year but this year has flown and while there have been some big changes, not a lot has really changed. Our Federal representative has changed and as a result our profile as a city has diminished. That will happen when the Prime Minister is your local rep. By and large our political representatives have had little impact on our day to day lives, that is not a criticism, just a fact of life. Let’s be honest, we still have the same major beefs about life in the West. Traffic is still the number one gripe for me and it is getting worse. The inability to get across our city is a real problem, and then, when you try and commute to Melbourne, it goes from bad to worse. The real worry is that no one has a solution (me included). It is not that long ago that moving around different parts of Wyndham was easy, and I was the envy of my work colleagues because I could breeze in to the city in under 30 minutes, now I am lucky if I get out of Hoppers Crossing in that time.

I AM looking forward to Christmas with my family and I hope you and your loved ones have a memorable festive season.

Thief appeals jail term By ALESHA CAPONE A MAN who committed more than 50 crimes in locations including the West has appealed his jail sentence. The Supreme Court of Victoria Court of Appeal recently heard Bradley Berry was sentenced to more than four years’ imprisonment during May this year. He was given a non-parole period of two years and six months after committing 58 offences including theft, obtaining property by deception, attempted armed robbery, handling stolen goods and aggravated assault. The offender’s first charge in the

crime spree happened in June 2012 when Berry stole a woman’s purse while she was shopping in Hoppers Crossing. Berry went on to steal purses and handbags from people in Altona, Altona Meadows, Caroline Springs, Maribyrnong, Point Cook and Williamstown. Sometimes he was accompanied by a co-accused who would steal the bags while Berry distracted the victim. At one stage, the pair conducted transactions worth more than $3000 with stolen credit cards at Altona, Altona North, Braybrook, Hoppers Crossing, Sydenham, Taylors Lakes

and Werribee stores. Berry was finally captured when Westfield Plaza security staff from recognised him and the co-accused on 27 July last year. When the guards followed the duo outside, Berry produced a large hunting knife. Berry ran away towards a sedan driven by a 67-year-old woman and her 70-year-old husband. Berry opened the car’s passenger side door and ordered the woman to drive, but the woman exited the vehicle and her husband pulled on the handbrake to stop the car. Berry jumped out and ran into

the front of another car being driven by a woman and made her stop the vehicle. She trapped Berry’s arm in the car’s door frame before he escaped. Berry then attempted to gain entry to another vehicle driven by a grandmother, with her six-year oldgranddaughter and four-year-old grandson inside. Justice Paul Coghlan told the court this failed and police later arrested Berry, before taking him to the Geelong Police Station. Judge Coghlan and two other judges did not reduce Berry’s original sentence.

Police eye break-ups By CHARLENE MACAULAY TAKE care when wrapping up your Christmas shopping - Victoria Police will be on the roads and watching. Victoria Police has rolled out Operation Break Up across the state, which is targeting the fatal five road user behaviours which are known causes of road trauma. Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill said the community could expect to see police at all major shopping hubs and anywhere else where there will be an influx of cars, pedestrians and cyclists. Mr Hill said police would be placing particular focus on driver distraction and seatbelts as we head into the festive season. “Police will be in the CBD, on the roads around major shopping centres and patrolling the local shopping strips to make sure all road users do the right things in these areas,� he said. “We know this time of the year can be really hectic and people have a lot of things on their minds. “But it’s also a time where we have a lot of our most vulnerable road users, both young and old, on the roads. “That makes it even more important to ensure all drivers remain vigilant and take extra care. “If you receive a ticket for using your mobile phone while you are driving, get booked for not wearing a seatbelt or you’re penalised for not crossing the roads correctly, I make no apologies. “That ticket may just be the reminder or the intervention needed to prevent someone being seriously injured or killed in a collision.�

Stefanie De Castro lives her passion of dance on stage as part of the ensemble of the multi-million dollar production Grease 111860 Picture: SUPPLIED

Grease is the word for our Stefanie By YASEMIN TALAT THERE will be a whole lot of summer lovin’ when the production of Grease hits Melbourne next month and Werribee’s very own Stefanie De Castro will help bring the classic movie alive on stage. Ms De Castro is a member of the ensemble, joining famous Aussies Bert Newton, Rob Mills, Todd McKenney and Anthony Callea as they travel Australia singing and

dancing all the unforgettable songs from the hit movie. Having started to pursue her passion of dance at the mere age of four years old, Ms De Castro said being a part of the Grease spectacular had been a highlight for her. “Grease is one of those movies I’ve always watched and always loved, so to be in the show is crazy,� Ms De Castro said. “I always aspired to do musical

theatre or be a professional dancer on stage,� she said. She started ballet lessons in Williamstown, before moving to Werribee and continued at a dance school there where she studied the major styles of dance. Ms De Castro made her musical theatre debut in 2012 as an original cast member of the Australian premier of TML’s ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’.

“A lot of people don’t get the chance to ever be in a musical,� she said. “To get into Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was a dream come true.� “I don’t think those emotions will ever go away I always have to pinch myself and realise I am doing something that I really wanted to do for a really long time,� she said. Grease will open at Her Majesty’s Theatre from 2 January 2014 for more information visit greaseistheword.com.au

Care for your pets this Christmas By YASEMIN TALAT AS Christmas fast approaches and celebrations are underway for the festive season, pet owners are being reminded to take extra care of their furry friends. Point Cook Greencross Vet Dr Zoe Sullivan said the silly season could be hazardous to pets across Wyndham. She urged pet owners to take extra precautions to ensure their safety this festive season. “It’s a very exciting time of year, with a lot going on. It’s easy to get swept up in the festivities, but it’s important to be mindful of your pet’s safety,” Dr Sullivan said. Dr Sullivan’s tips include

looking after the nutrition and well-being of pets by feeding them well. “Don’t stuff your pet like a turkey,” Dr Sullivan said. “Avoid fatty foods (like) cooked poultry and ham bones, trimmed steaks and sausages, as (they) can contribute to tummy upsets, gastric obstructions and pancreatitis, a serious problem we see in pets over the festive season,” she said. Chocolate should also be completely avoided, Dr Sullivan said. “Theobromines in chocolate will cause seizures and heart failure,” Dr Sullivan said. “If any is eaten, get your

pet to your vet or emergency clinic where vomiting can be induced. The sooner the chocolate is vomited, the less toxin is absorbed, and the better the chances of survival.” And as the weather heats up Dr Sullivan recommended pets be kept out of the heat. “Avoid long walks during the hottest part of the day, this will help prevent heatstroke,” she said. Dr Sullivan said pets, like humans, could also suffer from sunburn and required sunblock. “Like humans, animals still get burnt through hair. White dogs and cats especially will require sunblock.”

Jing Wu is in the state badminton team but is trying her chances at becoming an Olympic Picture: JOE MASTROIANNI boxer. 111936

Elantra

From badminton to boxing By YASEMIN TALAT POINT COOK resident Jing Wu is one step closer to becoming an Olympic Athlete. The 20 year-old is one of 13 Victorians who have made the cut to attend the AIS Sports Draft camp in Canberra. She will be among 38 athletes from around Australia who have been given the opportunity to show if they have what it takes to be a future Olympic Games and Commonwealth Games gold medallist in either boxing or judo. Although admittedly shock-

ed at first, Jing said she was excited by the opportunity. “I thought it would be an interesting opportunity for me and I didn’t have anything to lose from having a go,” Jing said. Jing’s sport of choice is badminton and she has been playing since she was 11. She has taken the opportunity to be a part of the AIS sporttransfer program which will see her training in the medal-rich sport of boxing. This will be her first time ever doing boxing, or any form of contact sport.

Tuesday, 17 December, 2013 Page 7

“The application asked for athletes who were currently in a non-Olympic sport and who were interested in trying out another sport,” she said. “I’ve always been interested in boxing because my brother joined a boxing gym a few years ago and at home he would teach me a little bit.” “I don’t really know what it would be like but I’m hoping it will be something I’ll enjoy.” If successful during the five day testing at the camp, Jing will have the chance to receive 12 months of coaching to prepare her for boxing.

Seeing Eye Puppy Farrow has appeared on the February section of the PawPal Calender, which features puppies who are currently in training to become a Seeing Eye Dog 112075 Picture: SUPPLIED

Puppy love for this calendar girl By YASEMIN TALAT IRAMOO Primary School’s favourite puppy is now a calendar girl. Seeing Eye Puppy Farrow will appear on the February opening of the PawPals Calender, a volunteer based organisation that are raising funds to support volunteer puppy carers. Farrow is in the care of Iramoo Primary School Principal Moira Findlay, and is a much loved member of the school community. The calendar is sold amongst puppy carers and their family and friends, and has been bought by many of the students. “The money that’s raised

from these calendars helps fund all the things to do with the puppy training days,” Ms Findlay said. “I’m very proud of Farrow and she’s grown so much since those calendar photos were taken, she’s quite a big pup now,” she said. “I don’t think there’s anything cuter than a Labrador puppy; the only thing that’s cuter is a Labrador puppy with a Seeing Eye Dog coat on,” Ms Findlay said. Farrow accompanies Ms Findlay to school each day and has been doing so since October 2013. Ms Findlay said the students and staff loved having Farrow

at school and even the extended Werribee community had a chance to meet the pup around town. “I think she is the best known pup in Werribee,” Ms Findlay said. She said when Farrow was being trained on the main street people would often stop to say hello. “Absolutely everywhere I go people ask questions and are very, very welcoming and it is absolutely raising people’s awareness about Seeing Eye Dogs,” Ms Findlay said.

Anger over tax ruling By XAVIER SMERDON UP TO 950 Wyndham residents, most of them retirees on pensions, could be made to pay an extra $1200 a year just for living where they do. The Australian Taxation Office recently issued a draft decision on the GST paid by park owners who are managing properties where mobile homes are based. Member for Lalor, Joanne Ryan, urged the Abbott Government to overturn the ruling. “If the ruling goes ahead, park owners will be hit by having to pay double the GST on leased sites,” Ms

Ryan said. “I am concerned that not only would this mean higher costs for park owners, but that these costs will be passed on to residents.” “Mortgage stress and tenancy eviction are already massive issues in Wyndham. This is another housing pressure our community cannot afford.” Bob Purves, who is a permanent resident at Ison Village in Werribee, told Star most of his fellow lifestyle village residents would not be able to afford the extra tax. “(Most) of us here are pensioners, and some of us are on the breadline,” Mr Purves said.

“A lot of people here are on single pensions and this is something we never thought we’d have to pay. It was never even on the horizon. “Whether we can afford to pay it or not is not the point though.” A spokesperson for Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey said the ATO’s review had been underway for some time and it was made known to the previous government. “It is not a government decision and we cannot tell the ATO how to interpret the law,” the spokesperson Ison Village residents are up in arms about possible changes to the GST. 111836 Picture: DAMJAN JANEVSKI said.

Rachel strikes gold By XAVIER SMERDON A HOPPERS Crossing student has seen herself grow as a person, and win an award for it. Heathdale Christian College graduate, Rachel Deroon, recently completed the Duke of Edinburgh Award challenge and was rewarded for her efforts with the highest level of the award, Gold. Awards Victoria CEO, Anoushka Gungadin, said Gold Awardees undertake more than 10,000 hours in activities they choose in five different areas: physical recreation, skill, service, adventurous journey and a residential project. “Awards Victoria is very proud of our Gold Awardees. They have all worked extremely hard for this award and have discovered ‘real world’ knowledge and learnt important life values along the way,” Ms Gungadin said. “Awards Victoria oversees a range of

School Holidays

A Star Advertising Feature

Huffing and puffing for holidays THERE is a certain magic about the old steam locomotives that stirs the imagination of people of all ages and from all walks of life and is a great idea for a school holiday activity. The evocative sounds of the engine chugging, huffing and puffing as it hauls its load across the countryside, and the unmistakable sound of its whistle - are indeed unique. The wonderful atmosphere of the days when steam ruled the rails is brought to life on the historic branchline linking Castlemaine and Maldon. Every Wednesday and Sunday (and Saturdays during January) the dedicated workers of Victorian Goldfields Railway, fire up the old

steamers to take passengers on an authentic steam train journey. A steam train experience is something the whole family can enjoy during the school holidays and the Family Friendly Fare for two adults and up to three children make this an affordable as well as an enjoyable holiday activity. So for something different to give the kids a great day out these holidays, take them on a genuine vintage steam train ride. Trains do not run on Total Fire Ban Days for North Central Region. No trains will run on Christmas or New Year’s Day. Call 5470 6658 or visit www.vgr. com.au for comprehensive details of trains and special events.

Enjoy the amazing programs on now at Scienceworks.

Check out what’s happening at the Bellarine Railway these school holidays.

The Bellarine Railway: Summer Holiday Program Heritage Train Trips Trains run daily from Boxing Day to the end of the first week in January, then daily (except Mondays, Fridays and Thomas weekends) until the Australia Day weekend. NEW: Queenscliff Station History Tours Tours will give an insight to the railway’s history and its importance to Queenscliff - selected days in January.

THINK Ahead, a major new long-term exhibition looks at the possibilities for life in the future through innovations in science, technology, engineering and design. “Think Ahead will completely change the way people experience Scienceworks,” said Scienceworks manager Dr Nurin Veis. “Targeted at eight to 12-year-olds, it’s technologically advanced and thought-provoking.” Developed by Museum Victoria, Think Ahead encourages visitors to think about the future and their involvement in it through topics including medicine and health, cities, the environment, space, music and communication. The exhibition includes the opportunity for visitors to: - Redesign their bodies using cybernetics; - Design their own 3D future city with vertical gardens and flying car factories; - Step inside an immersive space craft experience; - Influence others’ emotions through creating different soundscapes. Think Ahead features world-class innovations from Melbourne, including the Cochlear implant and bionic eye prototype and the two-wheeled electric Holden EN-V, a concept car of the future that can drive its passengers safely to their destination. Robots are a special feature of the exhibition. On public display in Australia for the first time will be two Nao (pronounced “now”) robots - advanced humanoids that will walk, talk, remember faces, dance and play games with visitors, and the Da Vinci Surgical Robot that has been used in more than 200,000 surgeries. “This new experience is totally unique to Scienceworks. “We’ve integrated immersive multimedia technology with hands-on physical interactions, rare artefacts and the work of local innovators,” says senior curator Kate Phillips. “Think Ahead showcases timelines of development across key areas of 20th and 21st century innovations and asks the question: What’s next?” Combining 200 objects from Museum Victoria’s collection and more than 30 items from the wider science and technological community, Think Ahead is the first new permanent exhibition for Scienceworks in seven years. Scienceworks is open daily at 2 Booker St, Spotswood. Pre-purchasing tickets is highly recommended. Call 131102 or visit www.museumvictoria.com.au for more information.

Choir students from Manorvale Primary School in Werribee are spreading the Christmas Picture: DAMJAN JANEVSKI spirit through song. 112020

Songs of Christmas By YASEMIN TALAT STUDENTS from Manorvale Primary School are spreading Christmas joy through song this week when they perform for the community. The school’s choir group, which is made up of 41 students, will perform a mix of classic and much-loved Christmas songs at Werribee West Kindergarten, Tarneit West Village and Heathglen Retirement Village this week. With the support of their

teachers Mrs Robyn Hawking and Mr Glenn Hunter, they have been performing around Wyndham every Christmas for the last four years. “We do this every year in fourth term, the purpose is community links and spreading the Christmas spirit,” Mrs Hawking said. Mrs Hawking said many groups across Wyndham, especially several aged care facilities, enjoyed having the children perform for them. “At the aged care facilities

the children really understand the spirit of giving and everyone really loves them,” Mrs Hawking said. “The kinder children love it too, they dance along at the same time,” she said. “It’s such a wonderful community spirit.” Mrs Hawking said the choir’s visits were only made possible by the donation of a bus from WESTRANS and therefore the spirit of giving could be shared by all.

There are four bedrooms set over two floors, the master with a balcony overlooking the bay, a huge walk-in wardrobe and en suite with his and hers basin. Bedroom two has a walk-in wardrobe, and bedrooms three and four include built-in wardrobes. On the ground floor there is a study or office, generous light filled rumpus area with built-in bar, and projector to entertain the whole family, well-appointed family bathroom, laundry and internal access to the oversized garage with rear roller door. The solid timber staircase takes visitors to the first floor, opening onto the dining and living area. The modern kitchen is finished with a two pack vinyl wrap kitchen, stone bench tops and Smeg appliances. The balcony needs to be viewed to appreciate its clean uninterrupted lines, with glass balustrade, timber lined ceiling and infrared heaters allowing for those balmy nights and cosy mornings. To the rear is a timber decked pergola with in-built pizza oven, fully landscaped gardens, with mature fruit trees and veggie garden all fully irrigated. The home also benefits from ducted heating and refrigerated cooling, a 23,000 litre underground water tank, high square set ceilings, state-of-the art security system, and insulation throughout.

THE CURRENT MARKET AND LOOKING TOWARD THE NEW YEAR

CONSIDERING SELLING IN 2014? NOW IS THE BEST TIME TO PREPARE

Whilst the current market outlook is positive with a marked increase in the Melbourne median house price for the September quarter, the year ahead will be impacted by factors such as volatile currency PDUNHWVWKHĂ RZRQIURPQHUYRXVQHVVLQWKHVWDELOLW\ of European markets and the growing interest of foreign buyers in purchasing properties in Melbourne. This, coupled with the propensity for Self Managed Super Fund holders to invest in the property market and interest rates still at historical low levels, means ZHFDQDQWLFLSDWHVLJQLĂ&#x20AC;FDQWPRYHPHQWLQWKH property market in 2014. SOURCE: THE AUSTRALIAN BUSINESS SECTION

With fewer properties listed over the summer months and buyers still actively looking, this is your opportunity to work closely with the Barry Plant team giving you the time to consider and plan your campaign for maximum effect.

Season’s Greetings

Connecting people and communities WERR

A Star Advertising Feature

Merry source of season’s greetings has become somewhat less ubiquitous than it was in the 20th century. (However, the commercialisation of the actual holiday continues unabated.) The non-religious sometimes use the greeting as well, however in this case its meaning focuses more on the secular aspects of Christmas, rather than the Nativity of Jesus. Its meanings and variations include “merry Christmas”, the traditionally used by many nations, “merry Xmas”, usually used to avoid the length of “merry Christmas”, with the “X” (sometimes controversially) replacing Christ or even “Feliz Navidad”, which is the Spanish language equivalent of “happy Christmas”, but is frequently used in English context. As of 2005, this greeting still remains popular among countries

with large Christian populations, including Australia. “Merry,” derived from the Old English myrige, originally meant merely “pleasant” rather than joyous or jolly as in the phrase “merry month of May”. Though Christmas has been celebrated since the 4th century AD, the first known usage of any Christmastime greeting, “merry Christmas and a happy new year” thus incorporating two greetings was in an informal letter written by an English admiral in 1699. The same phrase appeared in the first Christmas card, produced in England in 1843. The then relatively new term “merry Christmas” figured prominently in Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol in 1843.

Merry Christmas is used as a greeting in the holiday season, but how did it come about?

HOLIDAY greetings are a selection of greetings that are often spoken with good intentions to strangers, family, friends, or other people during the months of December and January at Christmas and on New Year’s Day. Some greetings are more prevalent than others, depending on the cultural and religious status of any given area. Controversy has aroused regarding the phrase “happy holidays” as an alleged attempt to diminish Christmas. The phrase is often proffered when it is known that the receiver is a Christian or celebrates Christmas. In the beginning of the 21st century, as Christians in increasingly multi-cultural societies continue becoming more sensitive to and respectful of non-Christians and non-Christian faiths, the phrase

PLAYING in Wednesday’s Australian Baseball League All Star Game is going to be that little bit more special for Darryl George. The young gun shortstop, currently plying his trade with both the Melbourne Aces and the Tampa Bay Rays in the US, is very much looking forward to representing Australia against the World All Stars. This year’s ABL showpiece will be taking place at the Aces’ Melbourne Ballpark in Altona, which for George, is right on his own doorstep. “I (grew up) in Hoppers Crossing, just around the corner,” George said. “I used to come down here and watch the old ABL back when that was on, so this is pretty much my backyard.” At 20 years of age, George still has the world at his feet. And considering his already impressive resume - donning the green and gold in the familiar surrounds of his home ballpark will be a massive honour for George. “To represent my country is something growing up as a kid I’ve always wanted to do, and I’m very grateful to be given that opportunity,” he said. “It’s just cool. It’s always an honour to be able to represent your country, especially in front of friends and family as well being so close to home. “So I’m looking forward to the opportunity and I’m sure it will be a fun night as well.” Since signing with the Rays in 2010, baseball has become a 24/7 gig for George. He was just a teenager when the Rays first snapped him up after representing Victoria as part of the Major League Baseball Academy program on the Gold Coast. Naturally, it took George a bit of time to adjust to his drastically new lifestyle, but he insists it does get easier with experience. “I think definitely in the first year the homesickness is huge,” George explained. “You’re 18-years-old, fresh out of high school

Darryl George will take part in Wednesday’s ABL All Star Game at Altona’s Melbourne Picture: SMP Images Ballpark. 112094 and you’re so used to being with mum and dad and then you go away and it’s a dog-eat-dog kind of world. “It’s a very competitive place and I think it just means you have to grow up a lot quicker.” Though George may now be well on his way to the big time, he hasn’t forgotten his humble beginnings as a Werribee Giant. “I’m definitely looking forward to going down there and helping them out a bit more.”

Sport Jacobs’ army ready By LIAM TWOMEY WESTERN Region Football League Division One coach of the year Brett Jacobs is ready to lead the competition into battle. Jacobs has been appointed head coach of the WRFL interleague side for next year’s clash against the Southern Football League. The match will be part of the first metropolitan interleague carnival since 1999 and Jacobs said he was looking forward to being involved in the concept. “I was involved (in representative football) at an under 18 level and played in a game and really liked it,” Jacobs said. “Some of the guys I played with in that side I am still mates with today. It is a really good concept in that regard. “Hopefully the players are keen to get involved. Certainly I think younger guys would be really keen. A few of the older guys who battle to get up week to week might be pushing it and give it a wide berth. If that is the case we certainly understand. “I would hope players were keen and clubs allow them to play and it is well supported.” The next step for Jacobs will be to finalise his support staff for the match which will be played at Visy Park on 29 March. Once that is complete he will look at forming the playing squad. “I would imagine we will be casting a wide net,” he said. “There are a lot of quality players going around and I think we will have a large group to start with and then make cuts each week until we finalise the squad.” Next year’s interleague carnival will see the top six metropolitan leagues square off in one huge day of football. All leagues have been ranked prior to the games with the SFL in sixth place and the WRFL in fifth. Other matches will include the fourth-placed Essendon District

Jets are still learning to fly By ADEM SARICAOGLU

Sunshine coach Brett Jacobs will lead the WRFL interleague side. 103727 Football League taking on the thirdplaced Northern Football League, while the battle for the prestigious number one spot will be contested between the Victorian Amateur Football Association and the Eastern Football League.

“The way the format is set up, within two years you could be playing off for the number one ranking,” Jacobs said. “It is very similar to the Country Championships and that is certainly really exciting. This is the first year

Picture: DAMIAN VISENTINI

it is in but I just think it will get bigger and bigger as each year goes past. “That is why we are really hoping the clubs support it and the players get behind the process and put their hands up to be involved.”

FOR Western Jets coach Torin Baker, 2013 was as much a learning year for himself as it was for the talented playing group he mentored. Baker took charge of the Jets after the 2012 season and went on to lead them to a finals berth in the TAC Cup this year. But the inherently different role TAC Cup coaches have compared to most of their contemporaries across other leagues provides for a unique set of challenges. For Baker and his coaching staff, the TAC Cup is as much a developmental competition for coaches as it is for players. “Certainly every year you coach you learn and you develop your views and your philosophies and it’s the same with the whole coaching staff,” Baker explained. “We’ve all had a reasonable level of coaching experience at a variety of different levels. “For all my assistant coaches it was their first year at TAC level, and they’ve all come from VFL backgrounds, so I think from that point of view it was certainly a learning year for most of the staff.” When dealing with a wealth of more than 50 budding AFL hopefuls in a 17-game season, navigating that balance of nurturing each individual while trying to play successful football can be more than a little tricky. “I think it’s a real balancing act,” Baker said. “What you really need to look at is what’s important for the individual, and there’s no doubt we don’t always play our best team or players in certain areas that can help the team. “We play them generally for what’s best for the individual, but then once we’ve decided on that we’ll certainly look to make sure that we’ve got a winning culture.” Like all TAC Cup clubs, success is measured both on the scoreboard and at draft time in November. But as shown by the Eastern Ranges in 2013, getting it right on the field has its advantages come November. For Baker, nurturing his players as natural competitors is important for both player and club. “We know that’s part of football,” he said. “We know if we’ve got a team that’s highly successful with results that it’s more likely going to lead to whether it’s a happy environment or more players get opportunities at further levels.”

Werribee Hyundai i20 WITH AUTO

Bees get busy on league By ADEM SARICAOGLU WERRIBEE City boss Nino Ragusa has welcomed Victoria’s National Premier League rollout with open arms. The Bees have been keener than most to be part of the new Football Federation Australia initiative that will replace the Victorian Premier League and State League structure in 2014. The club was one of the applicants of the original Football Federation Victoria model that faced stiff opposition from a large portion of the footballing community for much of the 2013 season. But now that the clubs and FFV have finally come together and agreed upon the implementation of the NPL for next year, Ragusa and his club can finally fulfil an end goal nearly three years in the making. “I’m relieved that now we have some clear direction going forward, and I think the club is relieved we can start planning,” Ragusa said. “Personally I think Victorian football needs a massive change at state level and Premier League level, and I think this NPL is a good thing going forward.” Since Ragusa took charge, Werribee City has been readying itself for the NPL.

Nino Ragusa hopes to lead Werribee City in the newlyformed NPL competition next season. 106166 Picture: KRISTIAN SCOTT With a youthful squad hellbent on playing the right way, the Bees worked their way up to State League One before earning promotion with a solid 2013 season. “Whether it was VPL or whether it was NPL - we were always quite confident we were going to be at the highest level of football in 2014, and that’s where our direction always was,” Ragusa said. “In the last two and a half years I’ve been there, we have built the team based on an NPL

being rolled out in Victoria from the composition of the squad, the way we’re trying to set up the club, our under-21s and our coaching staff right across the board. “We still have a long way to go but that was always the direction, and at the same time we still tried to push on the park to get promoted naturally just in case it didn’t go through.” Ragusa said club officials will meet next week in preparation for their new application.

WERRIBEE Cricket Club has had a flying start to the 2013-14 season. Their firsts are undefeated and appear firm favourites for the flag. The runs are coming easily too with Matt Dean scoring a century recently in the ones and in the lower grades Dillon Taylor, Jack Gage and UK import MG Brown getting to the magical three figures. Shaun Dean and Tim O’Brien recently played in the VSDCA rep side and while both made a valuable contribution with bat (Dean 35, O’Brien 42) they lost on the second last ball of the game. The last T20 game for the season is on this Tuesday (17 December) at Chirnside Park with a BBQ, so head down and see some of our local cricketing talent in action. I would love to hear from other cricket clubs with details of how you are going in 2014. I love the passion people have for their football clubs at all levels of the game from AFL to grassroots. Last week I hosted Inside the Kennel at the Bulldogs and President Peter Gordon spoke about the future of the club with genuine passion and commitment, but tempered with the knowledge and wisdom, that success comes from hard work and planning. Then I interviewed the three draftees to the club. Two eighteen year-olds and a 23 yearold. Matt Fuller, the 23 year-old, cannot get the smile off his face, and rightly so. He thought his AFL dream was gone, and while he was happy to play at SANFL level, he still had the desire to play at the top level. He, like the other two, is now living his dream and good luck to them all.

Doghouse KEVIN HILLIER PASSION can also become poison when people become blinded by it. That is when the other p word - paranoia, sets in. I have been taken to task in recent times by a few clubs over my comments both in this column and on SEN. That is fine, I welcome feedback both for and against. I do not profess to have all the answers to the problems of the world, but I am entitled to have an opinion, and if you do not agree with me, that is fine too. It is an opinion, not a fact. I don’t get personal and I don‘t expect it from others. Feel free to challenge my opinions by all means, I welcome that. I have started my summer stint on SEN and you will be hearing a lot of me in the coming weeks on various timeslots during the day. This is the quietest time of year for football news as all clubs, at all levels are holidaying, and all leagues are closed down as well, but it does give the chance for some lesser profile sports to get some exposure. I really enjoy being on air over the summer - it does have its challenges but it is good fun. I want to thank all those readers who have sent emails with events and news during the year. I do appreciate your contribution to this column and hope it continues in the future. CHRIS Byrne and the team at Westpoint Ford have been my sponsor since day one and I value their support and commitment. I am looking forward to being with my family over Christmas. I would like to wish all readers a safe, happy and fun Christmas and look forward to be back in 2014.

During summer, the quietest time on our transport network, essential works will be happening on CityLink, the West Gate Bridge, and suburban and regional rail lines. Summer is also the best time for road maintenance and repair crews will be out across the state, on regional and metropolitan roads, repairing and resealing the Victorian road network. These major improvements are necessary to provide better public transport and better roads for all Victorians. There will be some delays but the works will help create a modern, safe and connected transport network.

Closures and reduced services Road Construction crews will be working over the summer months repairing and upgrading roads across Victoria. Motorists are advised to pay attention to advisory signs and obey reduced speed limits while these works are underway.
