her mayoral term, it was not Cr Stapledon’s only achievements as mayor. Following quite a tumultuous year for the council in 2012, Cr Stapledon took on the role as mayor at a challenging time. Following the election, there was almost a completely different council voted in, with five first-time councillors, two returning councillors and only four councillors re-elected. Cr Stapledon has been credited as one of the driving forces behind returning harmony to the council and supporting and guiding the new councillors into their roles. Current mayor and close friend and colleague Geoff Ablett said Cr Stapledon was a worthy recipient of the recognition. “I believe Cr Amanda Stapledon to be quite an extraordinary human being,” he said. “I say this as this is my sixth year working with her and she has a real concern for the welfare of all people, and works extremely hard to make a positive difference in the lives of all the people she comes into contact with. “The Mayor’s Walk for Disability was just another huge example of supporting those who need support on an ongoing basis to make a real difference to their quality of life. “Her concern for the welfare and teamwork with her fellow councillors made her a fantastic mayor who could really lead and be part of the team. “She certainly set an example of leadership that I will, and those who follow will, try to emulate. “With Amanda, what you see is what you get, and she will never change from being the outstanding human being she is. “She will always do outstanding things for the City of Casey.”

WHEN Casey councillor Amanda Stapledon finished up her mayoral term in October, she left behind a great legacy. One of the highlights of her mayoral term, the Mayor’s Walk for Disability in August raised much-needed awareness and money for the critical service gaps in Casey facing people living with a disability and their carers. Cr Stapledon, who is the carer for her son Pete, trekked 75 kilometres, for two weeks, visiting prominent community centres, organisations, businesses, services, educational institutions and landmarks to speak with the community and highlight these key issues. Given the mayor’s profile, the walk drummed up huge support from the local community and successfully attracted some funding commitments from the State and Federal governments for improved services in early intervention, employment, supported accommodation and respite. The council resolved in August, that the walk would become an annual event. It is for this reason that Cr Amanda Stapledon has been chosen as the 2013 Berwick Cranbourne News Person of the Year. Cr Stapledon thanked Star News Group for the honour. “As a mayor or councillor, I would never expect to receive any such recognition for the work that I have been elected to do, but I do appreciate this privilege so very much,” she said. “The Star News is a wonderful paper that covers so many community issues and none more than the Mayor’s Walk for Disability. “The response to the Walk is still being discussed by community members even now which highlights the importance of the pressing issues facing people with a disability and their carers and how things need to improve and that they need our support. “When I was elected to council, I committed to representing everyone and I have endeavored to do just that. “But when there is an issue that sees people with such a need, it deserves extra focus and effort to try to improve their lives and that is what I hope that walk has done. “There is no greater service than to service one’s community.” While the walk was one of the highlights of

2013 – The year that was…

Hilary sends our hearts hopping HILARY the Kangaroo entered the hearts and minds of animal lovers throughout the state after she was shot with arrows in Endeavour Hills in July. After successful surgery Wildlife Victoria planned to release Hilary before her condition took a turn for the worse and she died on Saturday 10 August. A 21-year-old Dandenong man was interviewed and released pending further inquiries in relation to the attack on Hilary, who was rushed to an emergency wildlife vet after being shot with two arrows in her back and side. Fears for the kangaroo’s wellbeing and potential spinal damage were rife after one arrow was lodged 14-centimetres deep into its back. Wildlife Victoria’s Amy Amato said fines weren’t a harsh enough punishment for animal cruelty. “We don’t believe justice will be served as with many other incidents like this in the past, the penalties for such crimes are just not significant enough,” she said. This attack followed the death of a male kangaroo shot in the neck by an arrow in Narre Warren in November 2012.

Bus smash hero hailed DAWN Fredericks was hailed for her heroic efforts in saving a group of Dandenong North students from a head-on bus crash in March. This selflessness saw the Ventura Bus Lines employee, who chaperones a group of Emerson Middle School students on their daily commute to and from school, honoured with an Ambulance Victoria Community Hero award, as well as a commendation. On 21 March, Ms Fredericks and 31

students from the specialist school were on board when the bus and a car collided on Nettle Drive, Hallam, wedging the vehicle underneath. In the pandemonium after the crash, Ms Fredericks cracked open the rear window of the bus and helped the students escape. Two students were rushed to hospital but sustained only minor injuries. “The first thing that came to my head

was to check that everyone was OK, I had to move really quickly,” Ms Fredericks said. “There were a couple of obvious injuries, scratches and nosebleeds and I went to the front and talked to them and told them it was going to be OK, we’re all right, you’re all safe.” The day after the incident, Ms Fredericks made sure she was back on the bus to care for the students.

VANESSA Tanasio made international headlines in August when she came back to life after being clinically dead for 42 minutes. The Narre Warren South mother of two was rushed to Monash Medical Centre after suffering a severe heart attack at home, and then at the hospital had a cardiac arrest which technically killed her. Doctors at Monash used a new CPR machine called a LUCAS 2 External Compression device to keep blood flowing to Ms Tanasio’s brain after the cardiac arrest, allowing them to perform emergency stent surgery on her blocked artery. Ms Tanasio said without the LUCAS 2 machine, one of only

two in Australia, she wouldn’t be alive today. “I wouldn’t be here without it. It was keeping oxygen in my brain,” she said. “The surgeons were stoked. They were making calls to other doctors in the hospital to let them know what had happened.” Ms Tanasio, en ex-smoker with a family history of heart problems, started having chest pains on the morning of Monday 12 August which prompted her mother, Virginia, to call the ambulance. When Virginia was finally allowed to see her daughter in the hospital room, Vanessa passed her a handwritten note which said “kids”.

2013 – The year that was…

Vision plan THERE was much hype across the community in June when the council announced its visionary plan to create the $125 million Casey Cultural and Civic Precinct. The precinct would be a onestop-shop for services, arts and entertainment, described as a unique hub similar to Federation Square. It will combine business, arts and other facilities under one roof including a regional theatre with 800 seats, multi-purpose exhibition space, regional art gallery, new community library, community meeting rooms, civic centre and community plaza. The council hopes it would attract touring art exhibitions and major companies like The Australian Ballet and Melbourne Theatre Company. The announcement was not without controversy, though, with Greater Dandenong councillor Matthew Kirwan asking his colleagues at a meeting in June that a letter be writ-

ten to the State Government asking it not to help fund Casey’s plans. Cr Kirwan feared that his council’s major project plans could come under threat by the Casey Cultural and Civic Precinct. The proposal is similar to City of Greater Dandenong’s new municipal building plans which will feature a new library, café, civic offices, retail space, community rooms and a civic square which is hoped to become a Federation Square of Melbourne’s south-east. The precinct received star-studded support in October when Guy Sebastian signed on to announce the winning design, which will be chosen this month (January). At the same time, the council announced that four architectural design teams had been shortlisted, from 20 submission, which will now produce concept design proposals for the precinct. The shortlisted teams are Lyons

A YOUNG boy battling acute lymphoblastic leukaemia touched the hearts of many readers last year. At only five years of age, Narre Warren South resident Seth Sleep was diagnosed with cancer. Now aged six he has inspired many, above all his father. Earlier this year, Simon Sleep did the Speedo Dash, a fund-raiser hosted by the Leukaemia Foundation. Although it was Simon’s wife who signed him up for this, his little boy was proud to see his dad do the dash for cancer and raise more than $300 for to fight leukaemia. It hasn’t only been Seth’s family which has been touched by the bravery of this young boy, but so too have many other local organisations and individuals. Earlier this year, the Narre Warren South Cricket club donated an enormous $23,850 to the Sleep family, and Seth’s primary school Trinity Catholic Primary has also thrown its support behind the family. A young Berwick man was also in awe of Seth’s brave fight and as a result Ravi Wickramaratne from Narre Warren South Cricket Club shaved his head, and together with his work ANZ and his cricket team, the Casey South Melbourne Cricket Club, raised $900 for the cause. More recently, Seth visited Casey Fields for another meet and greet with players from the Melbourne Stars cricket team, and his father said that cricket has played

ILONA Prohaska’s story is one of incredible bravery after she survived an horrific stabbing and was left for dead following a home invasion. The Hungarian grandmother, who has lived in Endeavour Hills for 35 years, had her throat cut by an intruder for $70 and a bank card but afterwards managed to claw her way through her house to contact paramedics using her emergency duress beeper. After forcing his way in, the attacker took what little cash Ms Prohaska had in her purse along with a bank card, demanding the pin number and threatening her if she didn’t co-operate. The assailant then took Ms Prohaska downstairs to the basement room where he stabbed her in the throat, leaving her unconscious on the floor before fleeing. When she came to, Ms Prohaska realised her attacked must have left and that she was dying. Ms Prohaska crawled step by step on her hands and knees up the basement stairs to her living room when she remembered her duress alarm device the attacker had thrown into the front room. Summoning all her strength and suffering from impaired vision, Ms Prohaska crawled to the room and made her life-saving reach for the alarm device, pressing the button and contacting security services and paramedics via the intercom. Police broke a window to bypass the front door which the assailant

2013 – The year that was…

Council meeting spills into court THE controversy sparked from the fateful City of Casey council meeting in April 2012 continued to make news in 2013. The Dandenong Magistrates’ Court heard two cases in 2013, which were sparked as a result of that meeting. An investigation was launched into the council’s chief executive Mike Tyler in relation to his handling of a previously settled VCAT sexual harassment claim by a former council staff member against him and the council in 2011. At the same meeting, former Casey councillor Paul Richardson had to be forcibly removed from the chamber by police after he refused to leave when he was asked to. He was later charged over the matter. Both cases went to court last year. Casey councillors backed Mr Tyler’s

ongoing tenure in October after he escaped conviction for failing to properly disclose a conflict of interest to the council and the mayor. Mr Tyler was not fined but placed on a 12-month good behaviour bond and ordered to pay $1000 to his partner’s fundraising efforts for National Breast Cancer Foundation. He was also given a stay of two months to pay $9000 in agreed costs to the prosecuting agency the Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate. The court heard Mr Richardson’s case in November, where he was convicted for willfully trespassing at a council meeting and resisting police arrest and ordered to pay a $3000 fine. Magistrate Lesley Fleming said she

considered sending Richardson to jail but for his early guilty plea, which cut short what could have been a four-day hearing. Richardson, a Justice of the Peace, originally pleaded not guilty. Following the hearing, Casey councillors moved to strip him of his Justice of the Peace status by reporting the conviction to the Department of Justice. Mr Richardson said he would rather go to jail than pay the fine. At one stage, Mr Richardson, accusing the court of bias, said: “I’m considering calling a mistrial,” he said. “I have done nothing wrong. If I’m guilty I ask God to strike me dead in front of you, Your Honour and everyone here. I’m not afraid of dying.”

Casey councillors backed CEO Mike Tyler’s ongoing tenure in October after he escaped conviction for failing to properly disclose a conflict of interest to the council and the mayor.

Heat’s off as fire ministry moves on rian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) against the council’s decision to grant a planning permit for a mosque. A VCAT hearing was set for September, but it was successfully adjourned by Catch the Fire until November. However, in October Catch the Fire announced that it would be moving from its Green Street site rather than pursuing its legal challenge against the mosque. The evangelical Christian church dropped its plans to build a $2.3 million church but instead base its new headquarters in an existing church and offices in Star Crescent, Hallam, from November. Pastor Daniel Nalliah, from Catch the Fire, said finding the new site was a “great miracle”. “It’s the best outcome for all parties,” Mr Nalliah said. “I didn’t want to be placed next to a

mosque because of my former experiences with the community. “It feels more relaxed. If you think of the court case, constructing the church and a $1.5 million mortgage - that’s going to be a strain for anybody. “It lets me focus on the political party (Rise Up Australia).” “I think we now have a better opportunity to have good relations than if we were next door.” Mosque secretary Elyas Naimzada said his community had planned to have a good relationship with the church “from day one”. “We were planning to set an example that two different faiths can co-exist,” Mr Naimzada said. “But despite all ups and downs currently the community is happy the legal battle is over and we are moving on with the project.”

IT WAS a battle of two faiths that made headlines in Doveton in 2013. In March, Casey council passed a controversial planning application which meant a mosque would be built next door to an outspoken Christian church. Councillors approved an 11.5-metre tall Omar Farooq Mosque to be built next door a proposed church being built by Catch the Fire Ministries in Green Street, Doveton, despite strong opposition. The council received four objecting petitions to the mosque, which included more than 2000 signatures. Councillor Wayne Smith said the councillors needed to make a decision based solely on planning grounds and not religious or personal views, and added the application fitted the council’s planning requirements. In March, Catch the Fires Ministries lodged an application with Victo-

A EUMEMMERRING man has vowed never to venture â&#x20AC;&#x153;anywhere nearâ&#x20AC;? Doveton again after he and his dog were viciously attacked by an uncollared pitbull in Waratah Reserve. Mark, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want his surname published, said he was terrified when a pitbull attacked and bit his brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boxer cross Staffordshire terrier, Buddy, on Saturday morning and was warning residents to be on the lookout for it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It��&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most terrifying moment Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve experienced,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it to happen again.â&#x20AC;? Mark, who takes care of Buddy on

the weekends and regularly walks him at Waratah Reserve, said he heard the pitbull before he saw it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was walking the outline of the soccer oval where the fence follows the stormwater drain,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As I passed the park area I heard the dog but I kept walking and when I turned around I saw this thing heading towards us, about 30 metres away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most dogs usually stop about 10 metres away but this one didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop,â&#x20AC;? he said. The pitbull jumped at Buddy and started attacking him despite Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best efforts to deter the other animal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I jumped in front of the pitbull and

Mark, who is 110 kilograms, said he then started punching and kicking the animal but it could not be stopped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve boxed before but after two minutes of fighting this animal I was stuffed,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was feeling hopeless. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never felt hopeless before.â&#x20AC;? Mark had to let go of Buddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead before two residents from neighbouring houses heard the commotion and came out to help. One had a shovel while his neighbour picked up a tree branch and managed to force the

animal to stop attacking Buddy, after which it fled. Buddy suffered from a scratch to his shoulder blades and bite marks and lacerations in his cheek following the attack. Mark has since contacted Dandenong Police and Casey Council and warned locals to be wary of the reserve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have to be careful if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re walking around Waratah, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so remote,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If something does happen to you, you have no chance. I was just lucky I had people there.â&#x20AC;? Casey Community Safety manager Caroline Bell said a council officer had visited Waratah Reserve after Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sighting of the pitbull but had been unable to locate it.

A WILDLIFE Victoria spokeswoman has called for stricter penalties for animal cruelty following the death of an eastern grey kangaroo shot by two arrows a fortnight ago. The call comes as two people were questioned by police for carrying bows in the same Endeavour Hills area last week. Wildlife Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Amy Amato said fines werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a harsh enough punishment for animal cruelty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe justice will be served as with many other incidents like this in the past, the penalties for such crimes are just not significant enough,â&#x20AC;? she said. A 21-year-old Dandenong man was interviewed and released pending further inquiries in relation to the attack on Hilary, who was rushed to an emergency wildlife vet after being shot with two arrows in her back and side. Ms Amato said Wildlife Victoria was planning to release Hilary before $15,990 her condition took $a16,990 turn for the worse on Friday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tears have been flowing as Hilary touched many hearts and we all hoped that she would make a miraculous recovery, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to be,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, her injuries were too severe and as much as Hilary $24,990 $26,990 showed some promising signs of recovery, the stress and pain was just too much for her.â&#x20AC;?

FIVE months after she was viciously stabbed and left for dead in her Endeavour Hills home, Ilona Prohaska is still too terrified to return. The Hungarian grandmother, who has lived in Endeavour Hills for 35 years, had her throat cut by an intruder for $70 and a bank card but afterwards managed to claw her way through her Georgette Crescent house to contact paramedics using her emergency duress beeper. After four weeks in hospital, with significant persisting injuries to her neck tendon, shoulder and arms and a permanent scar etched across her throat, the 73-year-old is now living in a nursing home where she is struggling with mounting costs. She desperately wants to return home, but has vowed not to until a security door is installed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m too scared to come back home but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let somebody put me out of my home, what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked for all my life,â&#x20AC;? Ms Prohaska said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I have to die, I have to die at home.â&#x20AC;? On Tuesday afternoon, 21 May, Ms Prohaska was expecting a visit from an insurance representative and opened her front door after she heard knocking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I opened the door a little bit and I looked outside and I said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Can I help you?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I look up and down and then I look in his hand and see a big knife,â&#x20AC;? Ms Prohaska said â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to quickly close the door and he marched faster and kicked the door and the door hit me on my head and I fly here (into the next room) where the tiles finish and I drop onto my bottom.â&#x20AC;? The attacker took what little cash Ms Prohaska had in her purse along with a bank card, demanding the pin number and threatening her if she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t co-operate.

tors did not put their addresses on the petition because people had received death threats. She said council should listen to opposed residents and said she wanted to â&#x20AC;&#x153;save council the headacheâ&#x20AC;? because if the permit was granted, objectors would most likely take the matter further, referring to VCAT. City of Casey Mayor Amanda Stapledon said no matter what decision was made, the issue could be taken to VCAT. Sherene Hassan, a member of the mosque, said she hoped members of the mosque and of Catch the Fire could exist peacefully on Green Street. Pastor Nalliah said the decision made by the council was â&#x20AC;&#x153;politically correctâ&#x20AC;? and said it was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sad day for Australia.â&#x20AC;?

The move met resistance from Cr Rosalie Crestani, who was the only councillor to vote against the permit. Cr Crestani asked several questions about how the council officers would ensure the hours of operation, maximum patrons and parking requirements in the report would be adhered too. Officers replied the applicants were obliged to follow councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s requirements and could face fines or be taken to VCAT if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Cr Crestani said there were a lot of unanswered questions in the council report, including who would be in control of the mosque and if they would have any affiliation with offshore entities. Cr Crestani said some of the objec-

closed theatre sessions since 2011 due to Baillieu Government funding restraints,â&#x20AC;? Ms Fitzpatrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theatre nurses are currently being redeployed when theatres are closed or lists are cancelled. ANF is working closely with members and management during this very challenging time to ensure workforce stability is maintained.â&#x20AC;? ANF has called on the leaders of both levels of government to negotiate and to fix to the current funding situation. Narre Warren South MP Judith Graley and La Trobe MP Laura Smyth, both Labor, have blamed the State Government funding cuts for the possible closure. Minister for Health David Davis did not reply to requests for comment made by the News before it went to print. For more, turn to Page 11

Cr Smith said he supported the council officersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recommendations, and would have also supported them if they had recommended the council refuse the permit. He said the councillors needed to make a decision based solely on planning grounds and not religious or personal views, and added the application fitted the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning requirements. He said council would receive criticism from members of the community regardless of their decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Council canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win on this. There are probably as many people against it as there are for it. The people who are against it are just more vocal,â&#x20AC;?

or ambulances will carry the burden. Politicians are putting the politics before peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives and it should be the other way around.â&#x20AC;? Australian Nursing Federation (Victorian Branch) Secretary Lisa Fitzpatrick said the ANF understood Southern Health was yet to make a decision about service cuts, if any, to Casey emergency department. Ms Fitzpatrick said that to alleviate some of the uncertainty caused by unconfirmed rumours, the union contacted Casey management to remind them of their obligations under the public sector nurses and midwives enterprise agreement to consult with ANF about proposed service changes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ANF can also confirm that while there is definitely a lot of uncertainty, at this stage, no theatre nurse positions have been lost. Casey theatres have already experienced permanently

ther to go to other hospitals, meaning the ambulances will be out of the area,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153; It puts an increased workload on paramedics and on other hospitals. Dandenong Hospital is already full, now it could be even busier as a result of the Emergency Department closure.â&#x20AC;? Secretary of the Ambulance Service Union, Steve McGhie said the union expressed their concerns to Ambulance Victoria and the State Government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any closure of beds and wards means ambulances will be tied up or utilised and unavailable for longer, which puts patients at risk,â&#x20AC;? Mr McGhie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The State Government is playing a political game with the Federal Government which is disappointing. Both of them need to fix the problem

CASEY Council on Tuesday passed a controversial planning application which means a mosque will be built next door to an outspoken Christian church. Police, security guards, a media swarm and a man in a chicken suit criticising the council were among those at the council chambers on Tuesday, when councillors approved a permit for a mosque in Doveton. Cr Sam Aziz was not at the meeting, where councillors voted nine to one to approve a permit made by Achivision for the use and development of a mosque on a three-acre site at 27, 29 and 31 Green Street, Doveton despite strong opposition. Pastor Daniel Nalliah and Catch

the Fire ministries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; currently building on a one-acre site at 25 Green Street - voiced strong opposition to the mosque. The council received four objecting petitions which included over 2000 signatures. The move to approve the mosque was made by Cr Wayne Smith, following recommendations by council officers. He said many of the objectors were non-residents and about 1900 signatories on one petition did not leave their address, raising a question over its validity. He said it was interesting to note another planning application for an Ebenezer Christian Assembly Church near Green Street, on Claredale Road, received far fewer objections than the mosque application.

not travel to other locations. She said the Emergency Department at Casey Hospital was always busy at night, and the closure of it in the evenings would put a strain on nearby hospitals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crazy at nights, sometimes people have to wait five or six hours. If they go to Dandenong, they may have to wait longer now,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am hoping both the federal and state government come to the party and find a solution. The whole health system needs a shake-up.â&#x20AC;? Another medical professional who also asked to remain anonymous said not only would the closure of the Emergency Department in the evening affect patients and other hospitals, it could also increase wait times for ambulances who have to transfer injured or sick Casey residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will not have to travel fur-

Health jobs fear Good neighbours? CASEY Hospital staff have been anxiously waiting to hear whether their jobs could be affected if the Emergency Department closes at nights. Rumours are rife among hospital staff that the Emergency Department will be closing its doors during the evening, which could push patients to other hospitals, put added strain on ambulance services and force night shift workers to switch locations or resign. Southern Health has not replied to requests made by the News to confirm or deny the allegations, but one employee, who wished to remain anonymous, said she could be forced to choose between changing hospital locations and resigning. She said, if asked to make a choice, she would have to resign as she had commitments during the day and could

A EUMEMMERRING man has vowed never to venture â&#x20AC;&#x153;anywhere nearâ&#x20AC;? Doveton again after he and his dog were viciously attacked by an uncollared pitbull in Waratah Reserve. Mark, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want his surname published, said he was terrified when a pitbull attacked and bit his brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boxer cross Staffordshire terrier, Buddy, on Saturday morning and was warning residents to be on the lookout for it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most terrifying moment Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve experienced,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it to happen again.â&#x20AC;? Mark, who takes care of Buddy on

the weekends and regularly walks him at Waratah Reserve, said he heard the pitbull before he saw it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was walking the outline of the soccer oval where the fence follows the stormwater drain,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As I passed the park area I heard the dog but I kept walking and when I turned around I saw this thing heading towards us, about 30 metres away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most dogs usually stop about 10 metres away but this one didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop,â&#x20AC;? he said. The pitbull jumped at Buddy and started attacking him despite Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best efforts to deter the other animal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I jumped in front of the pitbull and

Mark, who is 110 kilograms, said he then started punching and kicking the animal but it could not be stopped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve boxed before but after two minutes of fighting this animal I was stuffed,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was feeling hopeless. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never felt hopeless before.â&#x20AC;? Mark had to let go of Buddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead before two residents from neighbouring houses heard the commotion and came out to help. One had a shovel while his neighbour picked up a tree branch and managed to force the

animal to stop attacking Buddy, after which it fled. Buddy suffered from a scratch to his shoulder blades and bite marks and lacerations in his cheek following the attack. Mark has since contacted Dandenong Police and Casey Council and warned locals to be wary of the reserve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have to be careful if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re walking around Waratah, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so remote,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If something does happen to you, you have no chance. I was just lucky I had people there.â&#x20AC;? Casey Community Safety manager Caroline Bell said a council officer had visited Waratah Reserve after Markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sighting of the pitbull but had been unable to locate it.

A Victorian Police spokesman said it was a disaster waiting to happen to carry weapons in this type of environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People need to use common sense and not go off with a bow and arrow or any weapons that they could fire and hurt wildlife or humans,â&#x20AC;? the spokesperson said. This latest attack comes after the death of a male kangaroo shot in the neck by an arrow in Narre Warren in November. Kangaroos are protected under the Wildlife Act and anyone with information can contact Wildlife Victoria on 1300 094 535.

A WILDLIFE Victoria spokeswoman has called for stricter penalties for animal cruelty following the death of an eastern grey kangaroo shot by two arrows a fortnight ago. The call comes as two people were questioned by police for carrying bows in the same Endeavour Hills area last week. Wildlife Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Amy Amato said fines werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a harsh enough punishment for animal cruelty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe justice will be served as with many other incidents like this in the past, the penalties for such crimes are just not significant enough,â&#x20AC;? she said. A 21-year-old Dandenong man was interviewed and released pending further inquiries in relation to the attack on Hilary, who was rushed to an emergency wildlife vet after being shot with two arrows in her back and side. Ms Amato said Wildlife Victoria was planning to release Hilary before $15,990 her condition took $a16,990 turn for the worse on Friday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tears have been flowing as Hilary touched many hearts and we all hoped that she would make a miraculous recovery, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to be,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, her injuries were too severe and as much as Hilary $24,990 $26,990 showed some promising signs of recovery, the stress and pain was just too much for her.â&#x20AC;? Fears for the kangarooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-being and potential spinal damage were rife after one arrow was lodged 14 centimetres deep in its back. Coincidentally,$a28,990 man and woman $28,990 were issued a warning under the National Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Act by Parks Victoria

FIVE months after she was viciously stabbed and left for dead in her Endeavour Hills home, Ilona Prohaska is still too terrified to return. The Hungarian grandmother, who has lived in Endeavour Hills for 35 years, had her throat cut by an intruder for $70 and a bank card but afterwards managed to claw her way through her Georgette Crescent house to contact paramedics using her emergency duress beeper. After four weeks in hospital, with significant persisting injuries to her neck tendon, shoulder and arms and a permanent scar etched across her throat, the 73-year-old is now living in a nursing home where she is struggling with mounting costs. She desperately wants to return home, but has vowed not to until a security door is installed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m too scared to come back home but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let somebody put me out of my home, what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked for all my life,â&#x20AC;? Ms Prohaska said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I have to die, I have to die at home.â&#x20AC;? On Tuesday afternoon, 21 May, Ms Prohaska was expecting a visit from an insurance representative and opened her front door after she heard knocking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I opened the door a little bit and I looked outside and I said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Can I help you?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I look up and down and then I look in his hand and see a big knife,â&#x20AC;? Ms Prohaska said â&#x20AC;&#x153;I went to quickly close the door and he marched faster and kicked the door and the door hit me on my head and I fly here (into the next room) where the tiles finish and I drop onto my bottom.â&#x20AC;? The attacker took what little cash Ms Prohaska had in her purse along with a bank card, demanding the pin number and threatening her if she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t co-operate.

She said council should listen to opposed residents and said she wanted to â&#x20AC;&#x153;save council the headacheâ&#x20AC;? because if the permit was granted, objectors would most likely take the matter further, referring to VCAT.

The move met resistance from Cr Rosalie Crestani, who was the only councillor to vote against the permit. Cr Crestani asked several questions about how the council officers would ensure the hours of operation, maximum patrons and parking requirements in the report would be adhered too. Officers replied the applicants were obliged to follow councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s requirements and could face fines or be taken to VCAT if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Cr Crestani said there were a lot of unanswered questions in the council report, including who would be in control of the mosque and if they would have any affiliation with offshore entities.

closed theatre sessions since 2011 due to Baillieu Government funding restraints,â&#x20AC;? Ms Fitzpatrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theatre nurses are currently being redeployed when theatres are closed or lists are cancelled. ANF is working closely with members and management during this very challenging time to ensure workforce stability is maintained.â&#x20AC;? ANF has called on the leaders of both levels of government to negotiate and to fix to the current funding situation. Narre Warren South MP Judith Graley and La Trobe MP Laura Smyth, both Labor, have blamed the State Government funding cuts for the possible closure. Minister for Health David Davis did not reply to requests for comment made by the News before it went to print. For more, turn to Page 11

Cr Smith said he supported the council officersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recommendations, and would have also supported them if they had recommended the council refuse the permit. He said the councillors needed to make a decision based solely on planning grounds and not religious or personal views, and added the application fitted the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning requirements. He said council would receive criticism from members of the community regardless of their decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Council canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win on this. There are probably as many people against it as there are for it. The people who are against it are just more vocal,â&#x20AC;?

Australian Nursing Federation (Victorian Branch) Secretary Lisa Fitzpatrick said the ANF understood Southern Health was yet to make a decision about service cuts, if any, to Casey emergency department. Ms Fitzpatrick said that to alleviate some of the uncertainty caused by unconfirmed rumours, the union contacted Casey management to remind them of their obligations under the public sector nurses and midwives enterprise agreement to consult with ANF about proposed service changes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ANF can also confirm that while there is definitely a lot of uncertainty, at this stage, no theatre nurse positions have been lost.

ther to go to other hospitals, meaning the ambulances will be out of the area,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153; It puts an increased workload on paramedics and on other hospitals. Dandenong Hospital is already full, now it could be even busier as a result of the Emergency Department closure.â&#x20AC;? Secretary of the Ambulance Service Union, Steve McGhie said the union expressed their concerns to Ambulance Victoria and the State Government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any closure of beds and wards means ambulances will be tied up or utilised and unavailable for longer, which puts patients at risk,â&#x20AC;? Mr McGhie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The State Government is playing a political game with the Federal Government which is disappointing. Both of them need to fix the problem

CASEY Council on Tuesday passed a controversial planning application which means a mosque will be built next door to an outspoken Christian church. Police, security guards, a media swarm and a man in a chicken suit criticising the council were among those at the council chambers on Tuesday, when councillors approved a permit for a mosque in Doveton. Cr Sam Aziz was not at the meeting, where councillors voted nine to one to approve a permit made by Achivision for the use and development of a mosque on a three-acre site at 27, 29 and 31 Green Street, Doveton despite strong opposition. Pastor Daniel Nalliah and Catch

the Fire ministries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; currently building on a one-acre site at 25 Green Street - voiced strong opposition to the mosque. The council received four objecting petitions which included over 2000 signatures. The move to approve the mosque was made by Cr Wayne Smith, following recommendations by council officers. He said many of the objectors were non-residents and about 1900 signatories on one petition did not leave their address, raising a question over its validity. He said it was interesting to note another planning application for an Ebenezer Christian Assembly Church near Green Street, on Claredale Road, received far fewer objections than the mosque application.

She said the Emergency Department at Casey Hospital was always busy at night, and the closure of it in the evenings would put a strain on nearby hospitals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crazy at nights, sometimes people have to wait five or six hours. If they go to Dandenong, they may have to wait longer now,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am hoping both the federal and state government come to the party and find a solution. The whole health system needs a shake-up.â&#x20AC;? Another medical professional who also asked to remain anonymous said not only would the closure of the Emergency Department in the evening affect patients and other hospitals, it could also increase wait times for ambulances who have to transfer injured or sick Casey residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will not have to travel fur-

Rumours are rife among hospital staff that the Emergency Department will be closing its doors during the evening, which could push patients to other hospitals, put added strain on ambulance services and force night shift workers to switch locations or resign. Southern Health has not replied to requests made by the News to confirm or deny the allegations, but one employee, who wished to remain anonymous, said she could be forced to choose between changing hospital locations and resigning. She said, if asked to make a choice, she would have to resign as she had commitments during the day and could

Boost for the blind CONSTRUCTION on Victoria’s only primary school for the blind and vision impaired in Casey received a $1.5 million Christmas present. The funding was a September election promise by local MP Jason Wood and Insight Education Centre for the Blind and Vision Impaired founder Alan Lachman wanted to ensure the funding was received and construction on the facility continued. Due to a delay in registration and a blowout in costs, Insight had to pause construction on the Berwick facility while looking for new funds to pay the construction company, putting the 2014 opening at risk. Mr Lachman travelled to Canberra in November and Mr Wood intervened to secure a meeting with Senator Mitch Fifield MP, who helped rush the payment through and have it signed off by Prime Minister Tony Abbott. “I am extremely proud to be a part of building the Insight school dedicated to the blind and vision impaired in Victoria with Mr Lachman,” Mr Wood said.

“Thanks to Senator Fifield’s hard work with the Prime Ministerial Office and Mr Lachman’s tenacity, we can now proudly say that La Trobe will be the first to house Victoria’s only education facility for the blind and vision impaired.” Mr Lachman said the funding had allowed construction to recommence on the specialist primary school. “Insight Education Centre for the Blind and Vision Impaired is now being built at a very fast pace after receiving the $1.5 million of funding on Thursday 12 December,” Mr Lachman said. “The support we have received from Jason Wood, Senator Mitch Fifield and Prime Minister Tony Abbott has been formidable and greatly reflects the need for a facility like Insight Education Centre in the area and across Victoria.” Insight is the realisation of a dream for Mr Lachman, along with his family, whose vision impaired daughter can receive the education she needs in a supportive environment.

Fire safety for coastal villages By BRIDGET COOK

CASEY’S bushfire prone coastal villages now have better access to critical information to ensure they are a step ahead this fire season. The communities of Blind Bight, Cannons Creek and Warneet celebrated the installation of two automatic fire danger ratings signs and three bushfire information boards at a launch on 13 December. City of Casey mayor Geoff Ablett said the council applied for the $40,000 in funding for the signs through the State Government as the coastal villages were recognised by the CFA as extremely at risk of bushfire. “It is critical that we support these communities to be well prepared,” he said. “Through community consultation, council identified the need for local bushfire information to be available for residents, visitors, tourists and fishermen who frequently use the area. “The installation of the solarpowered automatic fire danger rat-

ing signs and information boards will provide both locals and visitors with the most up-to-date information about weather conditions and provide messaging about what to do should a fire occur. “While the official fire danger period has not yet been declared, it is vital that these new alert systems are available now, so people can become familiar with them, be alert and ready to make decisions about their safety accordingly.” Hastings MP Neale Burgess was at the event6 in Blind Bight, representing Deputy Premier Peter Ryan. “This project will enable local residents and visitors to these communities to make informed decisions and be better prepared ahead of any potential bushfire threat,” Mr Burgess said. “The signs and boards will also raise levels of bushfire awareness and preparedness for tourists and visitors to the region.” For more information on fire prevention, visit www.casey.vic.gov. au/health-safety/emergencymanagement/fires or www.cfa.vic.gov.au

RUTTER RESERVE TOORADIN

THE rumble and roar of supermodified tractors are set to bring Tooradin alive this month. The town’s 16th annual Tooradin Tractor Pull and Truck Show will be held at Rutter Reserve on Saturday 18 January, and is set to be an action-packed day. The feature of the event is the tractor pull, where drivers of hotted-up tractors compete to pull a metal sled, which becomes heavier the further it is pulled, the furthest down the track. Another highlight is the truck show, where some of the best rigs from around the country will compete for the number of prizes up for grabs.

The family friendly event has plenty to offer the whole family, with a street car and hot rod display, helicopters rides, live bands and rides and entertainment for children. Peter McGrath, who is on the organising committee, encouraged the community to come along and join in the fun and excitement. “If you want to see something different, then this event has it all,” he said. “If you think the tractors are just tractors, they definitely are not. These are super-modified, loud, with V8 engines in them. “The truck show also has more than 100 entries, and the owners put so much time and effort into them. “It’s a great day out for the

whole family. There really is something for everyone.” All proceeds from the event go back into local clubs, schools and charities. The Tooradin Tractor Pull and Truck Show will be held at Rutter Reserve, Tooradin. The truck show takes place from 10am to 3pm and the tractor pull kicks off at 3pm and runs through until 10pm. The cost is $25 for adults, $10 for children and $60 for families, with discounts available for those arriving before noon. For more information contact www.tooradintractorpullers.com.au

Minister for Roads Terry Mulder digs up the first ground in the duplication of Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road Pictures: NICOLE WILLIAMS project. 112578

By NICOLE WILLIAMS RESIDENTS can expect speed restrictions and delays as works start on the duplication of Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road. Minister for Roads Terry Mulder joined City of Casey Mayor Geoff Ablett and VicRoads workers on Tuesday at the site to launch the start of the road works. Mr Mulder said the road currently carried around 29,000 vehicles each day and had been the site of 61 casualty crashes in the past five years. “This has been a long time coming,” he said. “There has been a lot of development along this section of road. “This will get 29,000 vehicles flowing and flowing smoothly.”

Cr Ablett said the area was in huge need of the upgrade, with 50 families moving into Casey each week. “That brings a huge amount of traffic here also, so it will be good to get vehicles moving and save lives,” he said. Although there would be delays for motorists, Mr Mulder said they were trying to work with residents. “We want to work as best as we can with residents to get the best possible outcome,” he said. “There will be speed restrictions and delays. “Motorists also need to be respectful of workers on the side of the road.” The $49 million project will expand and upgrade Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road to a two and three-lane road for

a 3.5 kilometre stretch between Pound Road and Thompson Road. “The result will be safer and less congested for drivers, with three lanes each way between Ormond Road and Glasscocks Road, and two lanes each way for the other sections between Pound Road and Thompsons Road,” Mr Mulder said. “The upgrade of intersections as Ormond Road and Glasscocks Road, and new traffic signals at Rosebank Drive will also help people get to residential and commercial areas more safely and easily.” The project will also include improved pedestrian crossings and shared access paths for pedestrians and cyclists. Work on the project is expected to be completed by late 2015.

Design for hub’s heart is revealed THE design of Casey’s new cultural precinct will be unveiled at a special event on Friday. ARIA award-winning singer Guy Sebastian and comedian Ben Price will attend an event on Friday to announce the winning design for the $125 million Casey Cultural Precinct in Narre Warren. City of Casey Mayor Geoff Ablett said he was looking forward to the free event. “A tremendous amount of work has been done in the last six months to ensure the Casey Cultural Precinct will

meet the needs and aspirations of the community and deliver upon the vision to be an inviting central heart for the community that celebrates participation, belonging and civic pride,” he said. “So, come along on 10 January to find out which team will design the precinct, view the winning design and be entertained by both Guy Sebastian and Ben Price.” Four architectural design teams: Lyons and Ashton Raggatt McDougall (ARM); Denton Corker Marshall; Francis-Jones Morehen Thorp and John Wardle Architects have developed con-

Guy Sebastian will attend the Casey Cultural Precinct design launch on Friday. 112548 cept designs for the precinct. The $125 million Casey Cultural Precinct will include an 800-seat regional theatre,

multi-purpose exhibition space, regional art gallery, new community library, community meeting rooms, Civic Centre and a community plaza.

I HAVE been looking at the City of Casey travel registration and noticed that councillor Wayne Smith has spent more than $32,000 on travel over the period he has been a councillor. My question is what benefit have we the ratepayers recieved by all of this travel from 2002 untill now? I also recall Cr Aziz complianed about graffiti on the overpass rail bridge on the Cranbourne - Narre Warren Road in 2013, and I noticed in the travel documents that Cr Smith went on two trips to investigate graffiti. Has Cr Smith ever told Cr Aziz that he went on these trips back in 2004 and 2008? Cr Smith might be able to give Cr Aziz some advice on how to clean the graffiti off the overpass bridge. To all councillors, we voted you into council to be accountable and transparent with ratepayers’ funds, junkets not included. Rex Flannery, Narre Warren South.

WHILST I agree that Casey Council’s method of dealing with public questions is completely out of order and should be presented to councilors unabridged, it seems to be a matter of democracy not ‘political correctness’. Political correctness is endemic throughout the Western world! To infer that it does not exist is not only ridiculous but can be extremely detrimental to oneself and organisations. One has to be very careful in regard to negative comments made in public, in written or spoken word. Religious intolerance is also a reality. We live in a country that is loosely described as Christian and in a great many instances apart from weddings, christenings, funerals, Xmas and Easter, a great many Australians seem to be apathetic where religion is concerned. This not the case in some European countries where loose immigration policies have resulted in large numbers of religious extremists who have no regard for the beliefs of the host countries and live in enclaves where their law takes president over that of their adopted country. Political correctness has been a significant factor in the problems that are fast becoming intolerable in Europe! Wake up Australia! Graham Edgar, Berwick.

Ugly tree change AS WAS agreed with the Casey Council at the meeting on 17 July 2012 regarding the street trees, in particular ones in Coowarra Way, Coolong Avenue, Boree Court and Theodore Terrace, it was agreed that a number of trees would be removed and property line clearance would be undertaken. I agree that much of this work has been done, although very few trees were removed. However, these large gums that remain (forest trees) were nice trees in the wrong place. The trimming of the trees has now left us with ugly misshapen trees, still dropping copious amounts of leaves and bark, tree roots breaking up footpaths and impossible nature strips on which to grow any grass on. I have one of these particular trees on my nature strip that I would like to have removed completely. I would be happy to level and replace the grass on the nature strip and plant a suitable tree at my own expense. I have written to Mr Griffin at Casey Council. I wonder what sort of reply I will get to my request. Not holding my breath. Val Stephensson, Berwick.

Have you made any New Year’s resolutions for 2014? Kate Sunderland: Yes, leave the past behind, stay away from negative people, and move on to bigger and better things. Judie Hedrick: Yes, not to make a New Year’s resolutions.

Say no to booze violence IN REGARD to alcohol fuelled violence, it is encouraging to note that there is a move afoot to close venues earlier. It is also encouraging to note that alcohol is not being displayed on the apparel of the Australian Test cricket team. Next it will be encouraging to see reduced advertising of alcohol at sporting venues in particular. Yes we can do something to reduce alcohol fuelled violence, we can lessen the advertising that is designed to encourage the use of alcohol. Yes, we can do it! Let’s save lives and reduce alcohol fuelled violence. Yes, we can do it! Ron Roberts, Cranbourne.

Begging for a shed THIS is a begging letter. This is the first time, I don’t know what else to do. It’s not for more, it’s for help to get a men’s shed up and running in Cranbourne.

We have been butting heads with Casey Council for three years, getting nowhere. Please can these Rotary, Lions, Apex or any other organisation help? The council say we will build a new building. When, when, when? They have a building we can use until when, when when? But they say they are nothing to do with. The Apex building was for the community but that is under some committee that no one knows about, it can’t be used. I call on all men in Cranbourne to e-mail the council, tell them we want a men’s shed. If you haven’t got a computer, get your grandkids to do it for you. William Williams, Cranbourne West.

Stop and listen IT SEEMS again that Casey Council doesn’t listen to the ratepayers. On 12 December 2013 workers removed a concrete bus stop on Pound Road, Hampton Park, and replaced it with a glass bus stop. How long before the glass is all smashed? D. Gardner, Hampton Park.

I HAVE been looking at the City of Casey travel registration and noticed that councillor Wayne Smith has spent more than $32,000 on travel over the period he has been a councillor. My question is what benefit have we the ratepayers recieved by all of this travel from 2002 untill now? I also recall Cr Aziz complianed about graffiti on the overpass rail bridge on the Cranbourne - Narre Warren Road in 2013, and I noticed in the travel documents that Cr Smith went on two trips to investigate graffiti. Has Cr Smith ever told Cr Aziz that he went on these trips back in 2004 and 2008? Cr Smith might be able to give Cr Aziz some advice on how to clean the graffiti off the overpass bridge. To all councillors, we voted you into council to be accountable and transparent with ratepayers’ funds, junkets not included. Rex Flannery, Narre Warren South.

WHILST I agree that Casey Council’s method of dealing with public questions is completely out of order and should be presented to councilors unabridged, it seems to be a matter of democracy not ‘political correctness’. Political correctness is endemic throughout the Western world! To infer that it does not exist is not only ridiculous but can be extremely detrimental to oneself and organisations. One has to be very careful in regard to negative comments made in public, in written or spoken word. Religious intolerance is also a reality.

Dance over disability

GHB drug making chemical seized POLICE searched two Casey homes recently and an industrial chemical used for the manufacturing of GHB was found. Five men and one woman were arrested after police executed search warrants at homes in Debanne Court, Narre Warren, and Warana Drive, Hampton Park, about 7.25pm on Tuesday 31 December. Police seized a small quantity of what was believed to be an industrial solvent. The chemical was believed to be stolen during a burglary at a Cheltenham factory in November. Investigators have been told the break-in occurred sometime between Friday 8 and Tuesday 12 November, with the offenders allegedly stealing several drums containing an industrial solvent. The industrial solvent, if ingested by a person, can potentially have a similar effect as GHB. A 26-year-old Hampton Park man has been charged with trafficking and will face court at a later date. The other five people arrested were released, pending further inquiries.

By LACHLAN MOORHEAD WHEN Cranbourne teenager Charlee was born, her mother was told she would never walk. But limits are there to be broken, and 13-year-old Charlee, who suffers from hypotonia (low muscle tone) and an intellectual disability, is proof after not only learning to walk but also to dance. Charlee was awarded a 10year service award last year at Cathy-Lea Dance Music and Drama Works, based in Narre Warren, and Charlee’s mum Lisa Harris can’t speak highly enough of the influence the dance school has had on her daughter’s life. “She needed something to build up muscle tone, but she wasn’t able to play sport, and I happened to come across an ad for Cathy-Lea’s dance school,” Lisa said. “When I rang Cathy, she told me that she had been thinking about starting up a special needs class at the school.” Charlee was a driving influence in establishing the special needs class at CathyLea, which, a decade later, is a pivotal part of the school’s program. Lisa said dancing had helped Charlee in so many ways, not only in allowing her to adjust to her muscle tone but just as importantly enabled her to make close friends and be part of an envi-

ronment where she was welcomed with open arms. “It’s more than just dance, it’s the chance for Charlee to dance with a group of kids and to be accepted by the community,” she said. “She’s really made to be part it. A good example is during the end-of-year dance concert with all the other students, she is 100 per cent part of the Cathy Lee community. “And for me, it’s lovely to see kids interact with Charlee.” Charlee, who has flourished under the tutelage of the dance teachers at CathyLea, couldn’t contain her excitement when she heard she would be receiving the 10year service award. “What little kid doesn’t love dressing up with full make-up,” Lisa said. “It’s every little kid’s dream to be on stage.” Director Cathy-Lea Smith is passionate about her special needs dance classes and said she had marvelled at Charlee’s development over the years. “When she was little, Lisa was told by specialists that Charlee would never walk or talk and here she is now winning a trophy for dancing for 10 years in a dance school!” Cathy-Lea said. “It means a lot to them, and I think it is inspirational to other parents of children with disabilities.”

Charlee, here with her 10-year service award, has made dancing a vital part of her life after becoming a valued member of the CathyLea Dance Music and Drama Works school in Narre Warren over the last decade.

Up for Everest climb By BRIDGET COOK A GROUP of fitness fanatics is going to the end of the earth to support a Berwick woman in her plight to raise awareness and money for a rare brain disease. CrossFit members from Ultimate Fitness Training (UFT) in Berwick have set themselves a challenge to collectively complete 8848 metres of rope climbs, the equivalent to climbing to the peak of Mount Everest. The Rope Climbs to Everest event will take place on Saturday 18 January. UFT owner Denee Lalouette decided to organise the fundraising event to support Berwick mother Melissa Kolbeck who he has been voluntarily training for her own challenge later this year. Ms Kolbeck is walking from Melbourne to Sydney in April in memory of a sixyear-old boy named Talin who died of a diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), which is a type of brain tumour. The aim of the walk is to raise awareness about DIPG while also supporting two charities - The Cure Starts Now and Bear Cottage. Mr Lalouette said members were inspired by Ms Kolbeck and wanted to do what they could to support her cause. “So many of us have seen her work so hard for the past six months or so, in order to get herself to the physical levels required to achieve such a massive

THE Lawson Poole Daylight Lodge has made a generous donation that will make a difference to the lives of Casey youth. At the Cranbourne group’s Christmas luncheon in December, two cheques worth a total of $2500 were presented to the Casey branch of Southern Cross Kids Camp. Lawson Poole Daylight Lodge’s donation of $1250 was matched by Freemasons Victoria Board of Benevolence, whose vice president Bernard Henry presented the cheques. Mr Henry said it was a pleasure to represent the Board of Benevolence and pass the donations on to a well and worthy recipient. Diane Gilbert, from Southern Cross Kids Camp Casey, thanked the two donating parties for their generosity and said the money would enable them to send five disadvantaged youths from high-risk backgrounds on their annual camps. The camps are aimed at children who have never experienced a carefree environment where they feel safe. They aim to give children and teenagers the chance to experience that through camps, where they get to take part in a range of activities to have fun and build relationships.

WATERFORD RISE CONNECTS TO THE FUTURE WATERFORD Rise is at the forefront of Australia’s high-speed internet rollout, with residents of the estate now able to experience lightning-fast fibre optic internet speeds up to 100 megabits per second - years before their Warragul neighbours. With the click of a mouse, the official activation of the broadband service recently by Baw Baw Shire Mayor Murray Cook has placed the estate up to 10 years ahead of the roll out of the NBN network in some areas of metropolitan Melbourne. The ultra high-speed broadband fibre optic cable at Waterford Rise is up to 20 times faster than the network service currently provided to the local community and all but a few small areas of metropolitan Melbourne. David Setiady, director of Redtrain Network, said the ultra-fast network has reached Waterford Rise before most parts of Victoria because, when planning the estate, the developers elected to have the network installed by private operator Redtrain Network, the first private operator to offer installation at no cost to the developer since 2010. “Importantly, Redtrain has ’futureproofed’ the connection so that no more civil work will be required because the network is designed to cater for up to a gigabit connection to each individual house premises,” Mr Setiady said. “This means that that the connection is there to cater for any commercial enterprises or health or educational institutions in the Warragul region, where Redtrain deploys its network, that may need access to such high levels of bandwidth in the future.” Glenn Sanford, general manager of Baw Baw Developments, said the new stateof-the-art connection will have a range of

The service has been installed years ahead of the NBN Co rollout and offered more functionality that the NBN Co’s competing service. “NBN Co only offers internet access and

Come along and enjoy the company of others in our community as we all work towards joining with local soloists and choirs from St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar School to perform songs from the famous 70’s Rock Musical ‘Godspell’. Complete with rock band accompaniment, VSPA will certainly entertain the audience on 3 April. The beauty of VSPA lies in the variety of offerings for people who have always wanted to have a chance to learn an instrument, take singing lessons or join in a performing arts activity. The six short courses for 2014 cover community choirs, drama improvisation classes, TV and film acting and instrumental groups. These activities run for about eight to10 weeks, so are very achievable for most people with busy lives. VSPA offers lessons on piano, guitar, drums, voice, woodwind, brass and string instruments and music theory at all levels. VSPA also runs classes for those wishing to take Trinity Guildhall Drama studies. The highly qualified staff are happily awaiting your enrolment for 2014. Even if you’re not keen to join in, why not attend the wonderful performances on offer throughout the year. Details of these can be found on the website and bookings can be made through the Trybooking system prior to each show. Make it your aim to be a part of the performing arts in your community in 2014 by being involved in VSPA. Visit www.stmargarets.vic.edu.au for information and enrolment or join us on Facebook.

Looking like a real team By LACHLAN MOORHEAD STUDENTS from James Cook Primary School scored a slam dunk last month when they received a $1000 Hoop Time Sport Grant from McDonald’s. The cheque was presented to the school during their assembly, with James Cook Primary one of five schools to receive the grant. James Cook assistant principal Lynne McDonald, who completed the 50-word application entry on behalf of the school, said the money would go towards uniforms for the student basketball team. “In the past our basketball team has had to borrow uniforms from other schools,” she said. “The kids were ecstatic that they can now look like a team. Before they had different coloured tops and different coloured shorts. “Now they feel like a basketball team.” Ms McDonald said she applied for the McDonald’s grant not just to promote sport inside James Cook Primary, but also to encourage students to get involved with sport outside school. This is the fourth year that McDonald’s has offered the Hoop Time Sports Grants and receives plenty of entries every year.

Tristan is looking forward to his new basketball uniform, which will be purchased with James Cook Primary School’s recently received Hoop Time grant.

The brain-child of jockey Jason Benbow, the event enters its second year with the purpose of raising awareness of the important role the NJT plays in the industry... at the same time raising funds and having a great community day out. A staggering 500 names adorn a memorial statue at Caulfield Racecourse, commemorating those who have paid the ultimate price in riding accidents around Australia. And while most people have phobias that can be neatly tucked away, it’s difficult for jockeys when the signs of danger are eminently prevalent. “There’s not many jobs where you go to work and have two ambulances follow you around,” Benbow said. “It’s something we don’t really think or talk about too much but we definitely take risks. “We enjoy what we do and it’s an exciting sport to be a part of... but there is an element of danger.” The NJT supports individuals and families, not just those affected by a fatal tragedy but also the impact of

career ending injuries for jockeys. Highlighting this is the fact that the two teams, the Jockeys, coached by former Sydney Thunder coach Shane Duff, and the All Stars, coached by media personality Richard Callander, will compete for the David Taggart Perpetual Trophy. “We actually named the trophy after David to highlight that point,” Benbow said. “David got bucked off a horse at Stony Creek, broke both his ankles and has been told he will never ride again, so it’s not just about supporting families who have paid the ultimate price, it’s about supporting jockeys who are going through difficult times.” The first of the now annual T20 contests was played at Red Hill last year and ended in a tie, but Benbow is under no illusion and realises his team needs to improve if it’s to be competitive this time around. “The result probably flattered us a bit last year, the All Stars had us covered, but we’re taking it a bit more serious this time around,” he said. “Shane’s had us in the nets and blokes like Damien Oliver and Steve Arnold have been hitting the ball pretty well, but we might struggle a bit with the ball, and our fielding’s not that flash. “It’s amazing how we’re prepared to jump on a horse and ride but we’re all scared of a cricket ball.”

And the number one target for the jockeys will be? “Bruce Clark. He’s their captain and he’s a bit of a bully. “He’ll be sitting in first slip because he can’t run, trash talking our players, but we’re ready for the banter.” The day promises to be a beauty with kids’ activities including pony rides, jumping castle, Kelly Sports games and activities, egg and spoon races, threelegged races, sack races and plenty of giveaways and prizes for the kids. A barbecue lunch and dinner and fully catered canteen and cash bar will be available while the day will also see the launch of the Inglis Pin and Win competition for the Melbourne Festival of Racing. Entertainment includes live commentary by the Punter-to-Punter Team of Con Marasco, Slim Whittle and Dr Turf while cover band Jack Hammer will perform post match. A raffle, auction items, market stalls and what’s sure to be an entertaining awards presentation will cap off a fun day for all the family.

WOMEN’S SOCIAL GOLF CLINICS

By DAVID NAGEL REVERTING to plan A has proved just the trick for Cranbourne trainers Colin and Cindy Alderson after their five-year-old mare Counted scored a gutsy win in the $100,000 Kellie Turvey Handicap (1200m) at Caulfield on Saturday. The Aldersons tried plan B -racing on paceat Counted’s most recent start at Caulfield on 30 November, but the mare raced keenly in the middle stages and failed to finish the race off. Settled back in the field by in-form hoop Vlad Duric, Counted recaptured the form that saw her place in a Group 3 behind Aerobatics and Assertive Eagle in the spring, pinning her ears back in the shadows of the post to reel in the Danny O’Brien-trained favourite Spending. The Aldersons capped off a successful weekend when their four-year-old mare Silver Trinket took out the first on the card at Kilmore on Sunday. Robbie Griffiths continued his stellar form and gave apprentice jockey Josh Cartwright his first Melbourne-metropolitan win when Romancingthestone opened the Caulfield program with a win in the $80,000 Claire Andrews Handicap (1000m). The three-year-old Holy Roman Emperor has always found one or two better this time in, having run four placings, including a second to the smart Minaj in the listed Crockett Stakes. Cartwright rode the filly a treat, being on pace throughout before storming away to win by two-and-half lengths. Griffiths trained three winners for the weekend, Magic Curves saluting at Bairnsdale on Saturday while The Princeling justified the long trip to Warrnambool on Sunday with a comfortable win over a mile and a quarter (2017m) in race seven. Racing returns to Cranbourne tomorrow night as the Browns Sawdust and Shavings night racing season continues.

Stars set to shine under the lights By DAVID NAGEL STAR players from both Pakenham and Merinda Park are set to shine under the bright lights of Toomuc Reserve on Saturday as WGCA cricket begins the run home to finals. The second-placed Lions and thirdplaced Cobras will begin their round-nine one-day clash at 3pm, meaning an expected close finish will be played out in front of a big crowd under lights. Both teams have depth but the battle between league leaders - Pakenham’s Chris Smith (574 runs) and Merinda Park’s Jess Mathers (25 wickets) - will be a contest not to be missed. Smith’s main support will come from fellow opener Russ Lehman, Jason Williams and skipper Dom Paynter while Mathers will have his brother Shannon in his corner along with tearaway quick Jarrod Armitage. The Cobras will need to get Smith early or fall to the in-form Lions for the second time this season. Top-team Tooradin will look to inflict Kooweerup’s fifth straight loss when the two sides clash at Westernport Oval. The Seagulls, the undefeated reigning champs, have had some bitter battles with the Demons in recent seasons and would love nothing better than keeping the visitors down for the count. Cardinia should consolidate fourth place on the ladder with a home-win against Emerald while Pakenham Upper/Toomuc host Upper Beaconsfield in a game crucial to both sides as they look to avoid relegation.

It’s a mixed bag By JARROD POTTER MIXED results have been offered up by City of Casey area teams in the Dandenong District Cricket Association - with a significant turnaround required from most to get even close to making finals. Heinz Southern Districts has jumped out of the blocks to finds itself fourth at the main break. The Cobras have a league-leading 2.133 percentage and have been miserly with the ball throughout the opening part of the year. Success has come from both ends of the Cobras’ order. The batting has been led by Matt Cox, with 369 runs at a whopping 92.3 with a pair of centuries before Christmas always a good sign of things to come. With 11 wickets against his name as well, Cox is working his way into a DDCA Best XI this season and will be up there in Wookey Medal contention. On the bowling side, Michael Davies has made his victims akin to tyros as he’s snared 19 wickets at a scant 9.4 per scalp. At the other end Justin Davis has also kept things tidy with 16 wickets at 11.8. The fact that Heinz hasn’t had to rely on their top line spinner Paul Stockdale is testament to how the rest of the team has risen to the challenge in 2013/14. Heinz has yet to face Parkfield or Mordialloc - the top duo in Turf 1 - and has to get to the job done early, lest they have to rely on winning a last round showdown with the high-flying Bears at home. The Cobras will rate their chances from here, but Cox could use a bit more support at the top of the order from the likes of Keith Perumal or Garrick Wiramanaden. The other Casey-area teams are in the doldrums at the moment, with Berwick (ninth), Hallam Kalora Park (10th) and Narre Warren (11th) at the tail end of the field. Hallam Kalora Park has plummeted following a first-versus-second battle with Parkfield in round

3. They’ve failed to pick up a point since and now sit third last with 15 points to their name. Reliance for survival has once again fallen to the Booths - Leigh (229 runs and seven wickets) and Cory (178 runs and eight wickets) are leading the charge but need more support around them from the rest of the batting order. Corrie Wilson (nine wickets at 31.8) has been a handy pick-up from Doveton but hasn’t been able to get the breakthroughs he is capable of attaining at Hallam Reserve. Big Callum Prosser (13 wickets at 17.3) has been intimidating with his steep bounce. Berwick’s batting has been boosted by the introduction of former Sri Lankan test batsman Thilan Samaraweera and the Bears grasped an impressive chase-down of Dandenong West in the week leading up to Christmas. The partnership of the season - 286 between Chris Davies and Bathiya Perera was something to behold and Perera (348 runs at 87) has been Berwick’s best batsman by a country mile and will benefit from brother-in-law Samaraweera at the other end. Perera has belted two centuries in Turf 1 and also flayed an unbeaten Twenty20 ton against Narre Warren. Nirmal Wickramaratne hasn’t replicated his numbers from his Narre Warren days so far with Berwick, but is guaranteed to chip in for 20 or so runs and a couple of wickets. Ryan Crawford terrified Springvale South in a supreme opening bowling spell at Alex Nelson Reserve and if he continues that form he will definitely jag a lot more wickets. At the other end, Tanner Stanton has been trialled at the top of the order and thrown the ball often for his spin and will be buoyed by some promising results in his first season of consistent Turf 1 cricket. Narre Warren has faced a minor exodus - losing Wickramaratne (Berwick) and spearhead bowling pair Nathan King (Springvale

Heinz Southern Districts’ Justin Davis flies in to bowl against Lyndale. 110336 South) and James Giertz. The Magpies needs more aptitude at the crease and there’s not enough stopping opposition bowlers - with Narre Warren reaching 200 only once this season in the 2013/14 opener against Lyndale in a onedayer. Dwayne Thomson (169 runs at 33.8) leads the Magpies’ card and is their only player over 100 runs this season. Narre let fellow bottom-

of-the-ladder dweller North Dandenong pile on 292 in the last match before Christmas, with the Magpies letting the Northerners escape from 5/66. Narre still has to face two topfour sides - Parkfield and Heinz Southern Districts - and the biggest indication of their season might come in the round 10 two-dayer against Coomoora.

The Magpies needs more aptitude at the crease and there’s not enough stopping opposition bowlers - with Narre Warren reaching 200 only once this season in the 2013/14 opener against Lyndale in a onedayer. Dwayne Thomson (169 runs at 33.8) leads the Magpies’ card and is their only player over 100 runs this season. Narre let fellow bottom-

of-the-ladder dweller North Dandenong pile on 292 in the last match before Christmas, with the Magpies letting the Northerners escape from 5/66. Narre still has to face two topfour sides - Parkfield and Heinz Southern Districts - and the biggest indication of their season might come in the round 10 two-dayer against Coomoora. Winner takes all and stays in the top turf grade.

BMW on track of success CALL it what you will - luxury four-wheel drive wagon; 4x4; sports utility vehicle; or BMW’s own title of ‘sports activity vehicle’ SAV’, the BMW X5 continues to barge its way through the Australian market. When it premiered in 1999, the four-wheel driven BMW X5 was the the first vehicle of its kind according to the German company. However, Range Rover may argue it introduced a sports activity model 29 years previously, though it didn’t tag it as such. Now the third generation of the new X5 is about to land in Australia with seven models, ranging in price from a tad over $80,000 to around $150,000, available from March. We had a preview of one of these, the X5 xDrive 30d recently. On the outside the new X5 is of similar proportions to the model it replaces but up front makes use of a wider kidney grille, headlight and tail lamp design giving the vehicle a more broad shouldered appearance.

Model range BMW X5 sDrive 25d: $82,900; BMW X5 xDrive 25d: $87,900; BMW X5 xDrive 30d: $99,900; BMW X5 xDrive 35i: $106,900; BMW X5 xDrive 40d: $115,900; BMW X5 xDrive 50i: $133,900; BMW X5 xDrive M50d: $147,900.

Style and function have combined up front with new air curtains at the outer edges of the apron designed to reduce drag by directing air around the wheel arches to create a curtain of air over the wheels, expressing it through breathers in the side panels. New-look 19-inch alloy wheels complete the picture. The xDrive 30d drivetrain, which includes an eight-speed automatic transmission and engine start / stop function, has been given boosts in power output, fuel economy and cleanliness. The 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine takes advantage of the latest in BMW TwinPower turbo technology and common-rail direct injection. This is enough to push the vehicle to 100 kilometres an hour from rest in just 6.9 sec-

The BMW X5 has upped the challenge to rivals. onds, 0.7 seconds quicker than before. Average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle has been improved by 1.2 litres per 100 kilometres to 6.2 litres per 100km, with carbon dioxide emissions of 162 grams per kilometre, 33 grams per km better. However these figures appear rather optimistic as our test car consumed 12.7 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and eight to nine litres during open-

road travel. Standard equipment for the BMW X5 xDrive 30d goes beyond its $100,000 price tag with particular attention being paid to keeping the driver in touch with his or her surroundings. Awareness has been improved with Bi-Xenon headlights, LED front fog lights, High-Beam Assist and antidazzle exterior mirrors. The head-up display, driving assistant, which includes lane

departure warning, forward collision warning and pedestrian warning with light city braking function, rear-view camera, 360 degree surround view and audible alarms of varying tones for each section of the vehicle, add to the safety credentials of the new model. The satellite navigation system is displayed with impressive sharpness on a dashboardmounted wide screen together with other functions at the call

of the iDrive Touch controller. The latter is positioned rather inconveniently to the left of the gearshift on the centre console, a nod to the left-hand drive origins of the BMW. Voice control, internet functions and quality audio system make up the grab bag of premium features. Primarily a five-seater, a third row of seats is among an extensive list of cost options to prise open the potential owner’s wallet. One thing that was given a workout was the Driving Experience Control by which the driver can alter drivetrain settings by means of a button on the centre console. Comfort is enhanced with electric front seat adjustment with memory, while cargo loading convenience is taken care of with an automatic tailgate. Sport mode has the X5 30d in spritely mood, rare in such a big vehicle (two tonnes-plus), Sport+ lifts the feral function. We liked it, which perhaps explained the higher than expected fuel consumption. Then again, isn’t the typical owner of the BMW X5 likely to push their machines along.

THOSE who aren’t into cars and technology may be puzzled to learn that the Subaru BRZ sports coupe, which has been on sale online since July 2012, is now being sold through Subaru dealerships for the first time. Huh? So where did people get them if dealers didn’t sell them? Until 1 January, the Subaru BRZ was sold exclusively online in this country. A smart marketing move by the local importer - allegedly due to limited availability from Japan, but more likely to grab buyers’ attention - meant that the only way to buy a Subaru BRZ was via the internet. Improved supply from the Subaru’s Japanese factory means the BRZ is now being retailed through authorised Subaru dealers. Cleverly, Subaru Australia hasn’t succumbed to the temptation to make higher profits from the car it’s recommended driveaway price remains at $37,150 for the six-speed manual, the six-speed automatic comes in at $39,730. This is in line with the online prices charged since day one 18 months ago. Nick Senior, the managing director of Subaru Australia, said: “It’s great for our dealers, who have the opportunity to display one of Australia’s most popular sports cars in their showrooms.” Such was the car’s popularity on launch that the initial allocation of just 200 cars sold out just three hours after going live on the web. Subaru has sold 1800 BRZs in Australia since its online launch. The Subaru BRZ is built at the company’s Ota plant in Japan as a joint venture with the company’s part-owner, Toyota. The division of labour between the two companies saw Toyota looking after the product planning and styling while Subaru did the engineering development and build. Subaru BRZ breaks new ground for the company in Australia in having rear-wheel drive. All other models sold here have

all-wheel drive (AWD), though the company does build front-drive (FWD) cars, none make it downunder. The Subaru coupe has low-slung styling and short overhangs. The front is dominated by a large, hexagonal grille with sweeping headlights. The rear is tall and aggressive and has an additional brake light positioned between twin large tail pipes. Once settled in the seat the driver will find it’s firm but comfortable with plenty of legroom and surprisingly good head space. Our test car had a manual gearbox, a delightful short-throw unit which is fast and smooth and just asks to be used frequently. Who needs big power and torque when you have a gearbox like this to play with? Although there are four seats, the BRZ’s rear pair are minute units for emergency use only by anyone other than tiny tots. Surprisingly for a car where space is at a premium, BRZ’s boot is ruined by having a full-size spare wheel. The rear seatbacks do fold flat for extra storage space, but it’s all a bit messy. Steering is precise and direct with excellent feedback to the driver. As expected in a car of this type, the ride is firm with plenty of feel for the road yet comfortable enough for an extended trip. Equipment levels are high with standard safety equipment that includes dual front, side and curtain airbags, ABS brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Control and a retractor brake pedal. It comes with a five-star ANCAP rating. Also standard are cruise control, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear lever, push-button start and stop, sports seats, front and rear foglights and power-folding door mirrors.
