 Authorities to launch all-out war on plague of rabbits...

Bunny busters A PLAGUE of rabbits has brought an influx of foxes to a Keysborough school site. But a solution to a five-year battle against the bunnies could finally be on its way. Land at 402 Corrigan Road is home to the Resurrection primary school and church, Keysborough Learning Centre (KLC), occasional childcare centre Freedom Club and units for the elderly - plus hundreds of rabbits. Resurrection Primary principal Steve Bellesini first noticed one or two in the school grounds about five years ago. “We found that they were mainly coming from an easement that runs alongside the school,” he said. He contacted Melbourne Water, which manages the easement, and they shared the cost - about $1500 - to bait the bunnies. “It didn’t make much difference,” Mr Bellesini said. The school then spent $2200 to bring in a pest exterminator. “But within a month or two the rabbits were back to their full force,” he said. Mr Bellesini said the rabbits dug holes in the playground, creating a hazard for children and teachers, and the school held regular working bees to fill in their burrows. “And they’re going underneath the asphalt and the asphalt’s been collapsing,” he said.

“The feeling is that the reason why the rabbits are coming in is the development along Cheltenham Road. “That’s pushing the rabbits out of their natural environment. “I would easily see 100 rabbits in the yard in front of me at 8am.” KLC general manager Neil Cooper heard rumours the plague had started from two pets escaping from a nearby home. “They look cute and the kids all thought they were wonderful,” he said. “Then they started to breed. “Of an evening you can see them streaming across the oval.” Mr Cooper said the rabbits had chewed through a telephone line and a data cable. “And if you’ve got lots of rabbits you’re going to get foxes,” he said. “We come across dismembered bits of rabbit. You start to worry about kids or elderly that may be at risk. “You disturb a rabbit and they’ll hop away. You disturb a fox and they might bite.” Freedom Club co-ordinator Karen Kruiskamp said staff had seen a fox on their site during the day, and it seemed they had reduced rabbit numbers over the Christmas break. “Everywhere you looked there was a rabbit,” she said. “It got to the point where they weren’t even scared of you.”

City of Greater Dandenong last week contacted Melbourne Water for help to control the plague. “We went and investigated. We determined they were coming from the Melbourne Water drains,” Cr Roz Blades said. Melbourne Water maintenance team leader David Leggo told the Journal they had met with the council and school to discuss how to address the problem. “We have proposed a joint

management program and are looking into the best approach in terms of timing and control methods near a school,” he said. “While investigations show that most of the burrows are on school property, this is a shared problem and we all have a responsibility to work out a solution. “Given our previous experience with rabbit control in other locations, we will take the lead role in managing the eradication program, with costs shared by all parties.”

A FOUR-STOREY apartment block in Springvale received council approval last Monday. But not all the City of Greater Dandenong councillors voted for the application for 18 Royal Avenue, which will have 23 one and two-bedroom apartments plus a basement car park. Councillor Sean O’Reilly said the development’s height

But Councillor Matthew Kirwan said the height was inappropriate for the street, which was predominantly single storey and on the periphery of the residential activity zone. He said supporting the application could lead to more apartments in this street and others further from the activity zone centre.

ed two years before Joe arrived. It has helped waves of needy families - including the refugees who dwelled in the Enterprise Hostel. Springvale has changed from a country town in the 1960s to a suburb burgeoning with people from many lands. Their businesses woke up a sleepy town. In the 1990s Joe noticed growing numbers of long-term unemployed as the region’s industries moved out. These days, Springvale has become a desired place to live. Blocks of land in its central district are priced over $1 million. It’s a sign of the suburb’s progress, he says. However, demand for help is now as high as it has ever been. The benevolent society receives requests from growing numbers of the working poor struggling to meet the soaring cost of living.

Joe Rechichi knows what it’s like to go hungry. 114686

“SOMETIMES the pot was on top of the fire and there was nothing to put in it. I know what it’s like to be a child without a toy.” Springvale Benevolent Society’s passionate president Joe Rechichi has stark memories of his own childhood poverty growing up in Delainuova, a small Calabrian town in Italy. It’s why he cannot let a child go without, he says. He puts himself on call for the volunteer-run charity 24/7 and is quick to answer the hotline when it rings in his study. Like many new arrivals, he and his mother Grazia and five siblings came with nothing. He was 17, knew nothing about Australia and spoke little English. “I came here to work and really got my hands in. You don’t work, then you don’t eat - that’s what I told myself.

“I arrived on a Monday when it was 105 degrees Farenheit (40 degrees Celsius), looked for a job on Tuesday, got work on Wednesday, got paid on Thursday and went to a rock-and-roll night at Springvale (town hall) on Friday night. “That night I thought this is beautiful. You don’t have to speak English to have a great time.” Last week marked his 50th year since landing in Springvale and reuniting with father Domenico who had left for Australia a year earlier to pave the way for his family’s arrival. Joe built a successful life - as a cabinet-maker who made his own house and as a contented husband and father to wife Teresa and two children. In some ways, the 67-yearold’s life work is complete yet he - and the benevolent society - still patch up many more lives in the region. The benevolent society start-

Cabbies attacked By CASEY NEILL

TAXI drivers are calling for more support from police, following a drunken assault in Dandenong last Monday. Sojan Thomas told the Journal he was standing at the taxi rank opposite Dandenong Railway Station about 9pm on 10 February when his colleague refused to take three men who appeared to be intoxicated. Mr Thomas said the trio argued with the driver before punching him twice and turning their attention to other cabbies nearby. “I was just standing over there and he just turned around and punched me on my face,� he said. “He hit me three times.� Mr Thomas ran toward protective services officers (PSOs) at the train station, who caught one of the men involved until police arrived and arrested him. “The two others had already left,� he said. Mr Thomas suffered bruising and cuts to his nose and forehead, pain in his neck, and had to replace his broken glasses. His doctor recommended at least four days off work to recover. “I can’t work, so it stops my income,� he said.

Mr Thomas has worked as a driver in Dandenong for about six months and said he was regularly subjected to verbal abuse. He’s always worried it will get physical. “Taxi drivers are easy targets,� he said. “We normally don’t refuse the fare, but if the appearance of the client is very violent or if you think they are drunk or drugged, they are the only rare cases we refuse any jobs.� Mr Thomas urged police to step in to protect taxi drivers. “We are humans. We are doing a job for a living,� he said. “We don’t deserve anybody’s abuse. “The police aren’t taking it seriously, but this is our life. They are waiting for somebody to die then they will do something.� Colleagues Maqsood Abro and Chetan Molri told the Journal they’d suffered many attacks from punches to threats with weapons and being spat on. “We’ve gone to the police station for help and they’ve told us, ‘mate if you don’t like the taxi industry, just leave’,� Mr Abro said. Mr Molri said police told him “they’re just drunk� when he reported an altercation. “It’s not our problem. We need help,� he said. Dandenong Inspector Bruce

Taxi driver Sojan Thomas with the glasses he was wearing during Picture: CASEY NEILL an assault. 114828 Kitchen said he understood the drivers’ frustrations. “I don’t envy a taxi driver’s occupation at all,� he said. “People have a few drinks and they’re the first place they call. They do put up with a lot of abuse. “That’s unacceptable.� But Insp Kitchen said it was “a fine line with police�. “We don’t have the resources to run every time someone abuses

them,� he said. “They just have to use their discretion. If anyone starts abusing them, don’t pick them up in the taxi.� He said the PSOs were an extension of police resources and had assisted in this case. “They prevented something more serious from happening,� he said. Insp Kitchen urged anyone with information about the incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Police slam fast and furious ‘fools’ By CASEY NEILL A SPEEDING hoon wasn’t fast enough to evade police but is no doubt furious. The Berwick probationary driver has lost his car for a month and will face court after flying through a 60 kilometre zone at 150 kilometres per hour. Greater Dandenong Highway Patrol Senior Sergeant Scott Roberts said the 18-year-old was among about 200 people who turned out in 100-plus cars in Apollo Drive, Hal-

lam, last Tuesday night. “We’re out trying to keep the road toll down and these fools are getting out there on the back of watching the Fast and the Furious,� he said. “We’re not going to tolerate this sort of behaviour. The hoons moved on to National Drive in Dandenong South, where police observed the P-plater drag racing another car toward Bayliss Road. Sen Sgt Roberts said the driver

A REVIEW into the future of Dandenong’s battling Little India is to go ahead despite some councillors saying it is none of the council’s business. Opponents say the area is part of State Government developer Places Victoria’s vision and that anything the council does risks being undone in the future. “The future of the area is not really in council’s hands,� councillor John Kelly, who voted against the review, told a council meeting on Monday last week. He suggested the struggling traders should be “proactive� and join the Dandenong Retail Traders’ Association. “There are other retailers within Dandenong, Noble Park, Springvale, that would love the attention. I’m concerned this council will spend a lot of money to promote this area and in a few years’ time it will be bulldozed or something else.� But councillor Matthew Kirwan, who proposed the review, later told the Journal that “Dandenong is our business�. “We should look after what we can control branding, promotion, community events, retail strategy and advocate to Places Victoria what we want for Little India for the aspects under their control. “As for spending money, the purpose of a review is to see what actions could be done and what the cost/benefit analysis of those actions are. “Let’s get the information into the hands of councillors and the community and then we can make the best decisions.� Cr Kirwan said the future streetscape could incorporate Little India by having shops on the ground floor of new apartment and office buildings. “Redevelopment of Foster Street, realistically, is probably years away so now is an opportunity to revitalise this unique asset and make sure it benefits from the new people that will be attracted into the city centre when the new library and civic starts operating in March.�

gatherings also caused public order and criminal damage issues, and businesses in Dandenong South and Hallam industrial areas had installed CCTV systems to protect their livelihoods. “They’re supplying us with images. We’re going to be using them,� he said. He urged anyone with knowledge of planned hoon events to notify police. “If they sit idly by, it’s taking resources away from looking after them and their family,� he said.

came to a stop following a 700 metre police pursuit, telling officers his car wasn’t quick enough for him to get away. They impounded the vehicle and will charge him on summons with various offences, including driving at a dangerous speed. “It’s a mob mentality when these sorts of people get together,� he said. “If one of these people gets traction and puts it into a crowd, there’s going to be carnage.� Sen Sgt Roberts said the hoon

Gentleman Bill was great supporter for Dandy DANDENONG lost one of its true gentlemen last month with the passing of Bill Brooks. Bill was a long time member of the Dandenong and District Historical Society and recorded his memories of Dandenong in the Gippsland Gate of October 2008. Reginald J Brooks, always known as ‘Bill’, was born in 1914. With his family Bill moved to 38 Robinson Street, Dandenong, in 1920. The property, which belonged to Bill Greaves, ran from Robinson Street back to Thomas Street behind the Methodist Church and parsonage. Bill started his education at Dandenong East School 1403 and then in 1925 moved to the new Dandenong West State School.

MY VOICE A MOMENT WITH

MARG STORK In 1925 he started at Dandenong High School. Bill lived the rest of his life in Dandenong. His home in 38 Robinson Street had no sewerage or electric power so the Brooks family had a dunny out the back and kerosene lamps and candles. As with most houses of that time, there was a fireplace in every room. Some of the smells Bill could remember from that time in Dandenong

included the horse-shoeing forges, the boiling-down of fat, the smell of fresh bread from the baker-house and the aroma of the Dandy Bacon Factory. Bill remembered the great floods of 1934 and was a lifelong supporter of the Scout movement in Dandenong. After serving in World War II Bill became an employee of the then PMG where he meet his wife Barbara Macdonald. Together the couple built a home in King Street where Bill lived until the last 12 months of his life. That house still stands today and is still owed by the Brooks family. Bill died aged 100. President of the historical society Chris Keys said the organisation was

extremely grateful to Bill for his many years of support. History talks Members of the Dandenong and District Historical Society have a wealth of knowledge about the history of Greater Dandenong and are set to share that knowledge with a series of public lectures. The first lecture was held on Monday 3 February, in the North Dandenong Senior Citizens rooms. President Chris Keys spoke on early Dandenong from 1835 to 1904. She will speak again on 24 March about the influence of her own family, the Keys, on Keysborough. On 10 February Ken Mastens spoke on the history of his family.

On 17 February Jenny Ferguson will speak on the history of the Dandenong Market and on 24 Feburary Ray Carter’s topic will be floods in Dandenong Max Curtain and his influence on the youth of Dandenong in the 1960s with be Carmen Powell’s topic on 17 March. The lectures are open to the public and all are welcome to attend. Chris Keys also issued an ongoing invitation to all interested to visit the historical society’s rooms with are open each Wednesday. The society is based at The Houlahan Centre 186 Foster Street East, Dandenong. Phone 9794 8967.

LOOKING BACK 100 years ago 19 February 1914 Jottings from my notebook By Philos The youngest spark in Dandenong will be the electric spark, and I am sure on all sides it will evolve a vital flame, which, it is cheering to hear, is very shortly to be set going in the streets and houses. Then the town will show a progressive air, and a new industry will be established to replace the former dolorous darkness that existed. 50 years ago 19 February 1964 Cleaner Dandenong streets would cost “considerable money”. Unless the council is prepared to outlay considerable expenditure, nothing more can be done from the funds available to keep the

streets and footpaths clean, said the City Engineer (Mr Wright) at Dandenong Council’s meeting last week. He was replying to criticism by councillor Schoon (about) the untidiness of the streets in the main shopping centre. Councillor Schoon said the council had purchased a small sweeping machine and he would like a report on how it could be used to better advantage. Mr Wright said he had not missed inspecting Lonsdale St. and Thomas St. each Sunday morning since councillor Schoon had commenced his complaint. The main street is swept every morning seven days a week including Anzac Day and Christmas Day, at considerable expense “as I pointed out in my report last year, unless you are prepared to put up a considerable expenditure, we can do no more with the funds available”.

20 years ago 21 February 1994 Ultimatium to clean up VicRoads has been given until this week to take immediate action to improve the appearance and condition of the Stud Road extension and Foster Street, Dandenong. The move follows the city council’s anger at the way the area has been left following works associated with the extension and the closure of the eastern end of Foster Street. 5 years ago 23 February 2009 Police reach out to the community In an initiative to break down barriers between residents and police, Dandenong’s uniform officers are holding a meet-and-greet session at Dandenong Neighbourhood House. The pilot “police clinic” will be used as a forum for residents to meet police and

discuss issues. Dandenong’s officer in charge Senior Sergeant Alan Drew said the aim was to make police more accessible to the community. “It’s the first time we’ve done this in Greater Dandenong. “Some people are intimidated about coming into a police station, so we are going out into the community and find out about concerns.” Neighbourhood House manager Amanda Hudson said having the police there would be positive. “We’re less intimidating than police stations for people who have perhaps not had good experiences with police in their countries of origin or grown up with a fear of police.” - Compiled courtesy the Dandenong and District Historical Society

Unfair fines hit

Suffering from unresolved unresolved Suffering from

Lower Back Pain?

By CASEY NEILL DANDENONG Plaza is wrongly fining shoppers, claiming they’ve overstayed in time-restricted parking zones. Loraine Doran parked on level one in the Clow Street car park shortly after 9am on 4 December. “I was there under an hour, then went off, had lunch,” she said. Ms Doran returned about 3pm to pick up her daughter, parked on the same level but in a different bay, and returned to her vehicle to find a $66 Traffic Monitoring Services (TMS) fine for failing to comply with the five-hour parking restriction. “I phoned TMS who weren’t interested, told me to email them and hung up on me,” she said. “It was too bad if I didn’t have internet.” She emailed TMS an objection to the fine complete with statutory declaration. “The onus was on me. I had to do all the running around for something I didn’t even do,” she said. “Luckily I could prove where I was. “How many can’t prove it? The day it happened to me I might have just gone home.” Ms Doran also called Plaza management and informed them of the issue. She was advised that her fine would be waived and that management was “in the process of ensuring errors like yours do not happen in the future”. “We will hopefully have the system fixed shortly,” an email to Ms Doran read.

Loraine Doran with her parking fine. 114914 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS But Ms Doran contacted the Journal when her friend found herself in the same situation last week. “They are fully aware of the system fault but continue to raise these fines, getting undue financial gain,” she said. “I can see this driving people away from our superb city. I certainly will think twice about Dandenong Plaza parking for the future.” Ms Doran said parking checks needed to include the vehicle’s precise position, not just which level it was parked on. Dandenong Plaza centre manager Mark Tannahill said

the car parking system was introduced last September to ensure the most convenient carparks were available to customers. “It is rare for this to happen,” he said. “If any customer has been wrongly fined they are able to speak with our information desk to have their fine waived. “If someone does happen to park in the centre twice in one day, then we encourage them to park on a different level on the second occasion, so they are not registered as having parked there continuously.”

CONGRATULATIONS. I was so pleased to see CEO of Greater Dandenong Mr John Bennie being honoured with a Public Service Medal in the recent Australia Day Awards.

YOU’VE heard of the Great Bin Swap, now get ready for the Great House for High-Rise Swap! Two highly significant events of major proportions are occurring in Dandenong - even as I write. The Great Bin Swap we know about as we have all received notification in the mail (the first of three mail-outs) and have seen the big ads in the papers. The other, the Great House for HighRise Swap, is yet to reach all residents and ratepayers. It seems architects and developers know all about it as they were consulted way back in 2009. We, the residents, are the last to be informed. There is to be consultation with us in March to April. I hope it will follow the excellent example of the Great Bin Swap. Will we be notified in the post? Will there be big notices in the papers? Will we be able to have choices as we

Paying for pokies TO THE question put to readers ‘can poker machines do more good than harm?’ (Jackpot for RSL, Journal, 3 February) the answer lies in the personal, family and financial crises experienced by too many people since pokies were introduced. Documented statistics of consistent tragic losses in personal financial security, along with depression and breakup of family life surely are enough in themselves to call for an end to this overall social curse. Regarding Noble Park RSL’s push to increase its machines; Monash University public health researcher Charles Livingstone realistically says “in the past they could operate effectively without the poker machine cash... any additional machine is going to create additional gambling problems”. I believe a very small number know how to control their gambling. However, before poker machines they would have found other satisfying outlets for entertainment. They should have no difficulty now surviving without the pokies. Peter Phillips, Springvale.

DANDENONG Market-goers puckered up for a free cuppa on Friday. And the Kiss for a Coffee promotion was only one part of Valentine’s Day celebrations. Shoppers also received chocolate-covered strawberries and flowers to mark the romantic occasion.

A COUNTERFEIT-NOTE shopping spree targeting Bunnings stores and chemists has proven expensive for a pair of wayward teenage mates. Both were fined $1000 without conviction after paying for eyedrops and power tools such as saws, an air staple gun and a drill with fake $50 notes last August. A DRIVER was in court last week for chauffeuring a mugger who stole an iPad from a woman on a Noble Park street. The thief - who was also the driver’s boarder - sold the iPad for

$300 and gave the driver a $35 cut. The driver was convicted and ordered to perform 200 hours of voluntary community work. COUNCILLOR Sean O’Reilly last Monday asked what new technology for council meeting webcasts was available at the council’s new digs. “The pixilation on these cameras does nothing for my complexion,” he quipped. MAYOR Jim Memeti has more invested in Healthy Together Greater Dandenong than most. “I’m actually one of the ambassadors now so everyone will be watching my weight!” he said at last Monday’s council meeting. The program aims to help residents improve their health and wellbeing where they live, learn, work and play. Visit www.healthytogether.vic. gov.au for more information. INSPECTOR Bruce Kitchen has spoken out in the wake of two suspicious deaths in Noble Park homes in the past two weeks. He said police believed both victims knew their attackers. “We want to reassure the community they are safe in their own homes,” he said.

IT’S NONE OF OUR BUSINESS BUT…

A FREEWAY prank after a long night of drinking landed a man a $1000 fine last Monday. Dandenong Magistrates’ Court heard he threw a stubbie out of a moving car’s window on the Monash Freeway, striking another car’s passenger in the head. In the police interview played to the court, he said he’d lobbed the bottle just to scare the other car’s 20-year-old female occupants. He said was unaware they were travelling in a soft-top four-wheel drive, its roof down at the time. This occurred shortly after he’d vomited in his friend’s car. Asked by police if he cleaned up the car later, he said: “I was hungover to the s...house.”

do with the bins? Will we be consulted as to whether or not we want our streets to swap over from houses to four-storey high-rises? Are we a city of opportunity for all, residents and ratepayers included, or are we a city of opportunity for architects and developers only? Residents and ratepayers are worth the price of a stamp when it comes to informing us about our bins. What about when it comes to consulting us and informing us about major changes to our city, changes that affect our lives 24/7? Going from living in single house blocks to adding four-storey apartment buildings in residential streets is huge. Come on council - we’ve paid our dues, surely we are worth the price of a stamp?

Gambler ends losing streak A GAMBLER who squandered more than $100,000 on poker machines in Dandenong and Doveton has been helped back on the rails by his employer. Terry Power of Doveton, who describes himself as a “recovering gambling addict”, owed about $20,000 on four maxed-out credit-cards before his workmates intervened. Nick Martinelli, financial controller at Mr Power’s workplace, CW Marketing in Rowville, helped organise a loan consolidating the debts and setting out a budget to repay them . He personally drove Mr Power to a first meeting with a gambling counsellor. “I said to him ‘do you want to stop this or not?’ Because if you do, we’ll support you all the way.” Last year, a grateful Mr Power cleared the debt - with the help of a long-service and annual leave payout from his boss - and has since steadily built savings. He is incensed that Greater Dandenong is poised to get more poker machines - albeit only five - at Noble Park RSL. The Albion Hotel has also applied for an extra six, taking the total in the municipality to 978. “The amount of machines in Dandenong is enough. It’s more than enough,” Mr Power said. “Those extra machines mean extra revenue, which comes out of our pockets.” Mr Power has come a long way from regularly blowing $1000 a week. His sessions have stretched from 9am to 3am the next morning, he said. “They fed you party pies and sausage rolls so you don’t even have to move from your chair.” As a measure to protect

problem gamblers, the State Government banned ATMs from gaming venues. However Mr Power said it would only take him minutes to withdraw more cash from that hotel’s TAB or an ATM across the road. He estimates his pokie losses at somewhere between $125,000 and $250,000. Included in that was a $72,000 superannuation and redundancy package in the early 1990s, which fatefully coincided with the widespread introduction of pokies in Victoria. He got hooked when he won a $100 jackpot. After that he became obsessed with trying to win back his losses. No staff member at a gambling venue told him to stop. Mr Power has described his state with poetry: “To gamble, not to gamble, that goes through my head/I even hear the music while lying in my bed”. “All I was thinking of was my next hit. I might get lucky. “Then all the way home you’re banging your head against a brick wall. You’re so annoyed with yourself. “You come home and start vacuuming the carpets or dusting. It’s more or less a penance. “I could have gone aroundthe-world three or four times.” As the counsellor warned him, there would be self-confessed “slip-ups”, such as a $700 splurge on the machines last Christmas Eve. Mr Martinelli, who checks on Mr Power’s financial affairs every month, said his colleague had always kept up with his new savings regimen. He’s seen Mr Power shed the stress of his indebtedness. “He’s now got money in the bank.”

Terry Power, left, has been helped out of gambling debts by workmate Nick Martinelli, right.

Reformed addict is now in his happy place IT’S been almost 12 months since Springvale tradie Matt Torcasio last gambled. The 27-year-old is back on television screens after first appearing a year ago in the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation’s Fight for the Real You campaign. “I hope that will help other people, help them realise they can beat it and stay on the right track if they try hard enough,” he said. His addiction started as a release from the emotional strain of his mum’s brain cancer battle, and a few big wins

got him hooked. But he lost about $250,000 in eight years. “All my debts haven’t cleared up as quickly as I’d like, but they’re getting there,” he said. Mr Torcasio has weekly help from a financial counsellor and a general counsellor, who’s become like a friend. “Whenever I get that urge to gamble she’s made me visualise a happy place from when I was a kid. “That’s down at my aunty’s place where she used to have all my favourite movies. That seems to get me through.”

“I’m too happy now and have too much going for me to ever want to go back. “You might be happy for the five minutes that you win.” He does worry about extra pokies slated for Greater Dandenong. “When you’re surrounded by advertising for gambling and new venues it becomes quite temping and makes it a lot harder to avoid and try to stop thinking about gambling,” he said. “But there’s so many ways you can beat it with Gambler’s Help.”

His girlfriend of almost six years, Lauren, has also been a rock and he couldn’t thank her more. “Me and Lauren have moved out together, so one of the goals has been achieved.” Mr Torcasio is even an ambassador for the foundation now, speaking at schools and sporting clubs. “Even if I only help one person from each of those schools and clubs it’s worth it,” he said. He can’t see himself ever placing another bet.

In the running Text death threats to wife By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS

A MAN who sent death threats by text to his estranged wife has been put on a 12-month goodbehaviour bond. Aaron Luckett pleaded guilty to threatening to kill his estranged wife, sending nine text messages referring to her death in Keysborough on 7 November 2012. The couple had separated soon after his long-standing extra-marital affair - which spawned an eight-year-old son - was discovered. Prosecutor Glenn Horman told Dandenong Magistrates’ Court last Monday that Lockett texted his estranged wife “I will see my kids or you’ll f ... ing die”.

His training is mostly weight and sprint-based, three to four hours a day, six or seven days a week. “The idea is to have explosive power to get the sled moving as fast as possible,” he said. “On top of that I need to memorise, visualise and rehearse tracks before I go down, which can be mentally draining.” Winter Olympic selection was the culmination of his dedication. “It still did bring some sense of relief and pride as all of my

was hospitalised for a week as an involuntary psychiatric patient soon after the separation. A year before, he had discovered the body of his brother who committed suicide. “He spent a week wandering the streets of Dandenong in an incoherent state. He didn’t know where he was,” Luckett’s lawyer said. He was diagnosed with an adjustment disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and anxiety, became unemployed and has since lived with his mother. His lawyer said he had “stabilised” since the incident. Magistrate Julie O’Donnell sentenced Luckett to a sixmonth jail term that was suspended via a $2000, 12-month good behaviour bond.

IMAGINE driving a billy cart. Down a water slide. At 130 kilometres an hour. This is how Winter Olympian and former Dandenong student Heath Spence describes bobsledding. The 33-year-old hit the bobsleigh track in Sochi, Russia, for the first time in the early hours of Sunday in the two-man sleigh heats, with the four-man event following this Saturday. Spence is aiming for a top20 finish in both, which would be Australia’s best result. “With the team and equipment I have I think this is very achievable,” he said. It wasn’t watching the movie Cool Runnings that sparked the former St Mary’s Catholic Primary and St John’s Regional College student’s interest in the sport. “Realistically, that’s how many people can relate to the sport, so I’m grateful that people get a very basic idea of what I do,” he said. “Actually, I ran into the past driver for Australia (Chris Spring). “He gave me my first run in a bobsled and I fell in love with the adrenaline rush.” Competitors sprint down the icy track on foot, pushing their sled, before jumping in. The pilot then steers them through twisting, high-speed turns. Spence switched bobsleigh position from brakeman to pilot after just missing out on selection for the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010. “If I knew how much time and dedication you need to put in I probably wouldn’t have done it,” he said. “I had to sell a few of my possessions, borrowed a lot of

Three months before, he had breached an intervention order against her by making “phone contact”. He had also previously been charged with reckless conduct that could have caused serious injury to his girlfriend, who accompanied him in court. The court was told that Luckett’s wife was “resistant” to his attempts to see their three children and wouldn’t answer his phone calls. “It got to the stage a month before the incident that (Luckett) attended the children’s schools because he hadn’t seen them for five months.” The court heard that Luckett

By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS WAYWARD garbage truck drivers beware - you’re on camera. George Thomson is installing a $2000 motion-sensing, high-res CCTV system in his quiet Dandenong cul-de-sac to detect the repeated off-road diversions by garbage trucks over the past 10 years. He says truck drivers from a succession of several councilcontracted waste-collection companies have mounted the gutter in Isobella Court driving across the nature strip and even the footpath on occasions. Mr Thomson claims trucks have caused a deep gouge in his nature strip as well as crushing a PVC drainpipe underneath. He said children in the court, including those visiting a family day care service, were at risk. He has spoken to WorkSafe, frustrated by Greater Dandenong Council’s inability to rein in the potentially unsafe driving. “It doesn’t happen every week, but it still happens regularly. “When I used to ring, the council would push me through to (waste contractor) JJ Richards. Now I refuse and I say ‘It’s up to you’.” Mr Thomson has collected a compelling brief of evidence, including a meticulous log book of truck incursions. On 31 December he resorted to taking video footage of a stray JJ Richards garbage truck, which drove over the court’s gutter. A spokeswoman for JJ Richards, which has been the coun-

A garbage truck mounts the kerb in Isobella Court, Dandenong. Video still: George Thomson cil’s waste contractor since last year, said after a check of the truck’s video-log camera there was no evidence of a breach. “JJ Richards offered to bring out topsoil to fix the nature strip but that’s not the point,” Mr Thomson said. “I’ve told them and the council that they’ve been videoed.” Councillor Matthew Kirwan publicly raised the matter at a council meeting last month.

This month, Greater Dandenong acknowledged there was an “ongoing problem in Mr Thomson’s street which is not accepable”. Engineering services director Bruce Rendall said he “apologises unreservedly to Mr Thomson for this”. “Council staff will contact Mr Thomson directly to discuss the matter,” a council spokeswoman said. “Council provides over 400,000 bin lifts on average a month. “The level of complaints is very low, with an average of 48 per month (or 0.01 per cent of lifts). Council’s aim is to eliminate all complaints.” The council didn’t respond to questions on how it would solve the problem. After receiving a copy of Mr Thomson’s footage, the company didn’t comment by the Journal’s deadline.

Sen Const Atkins said it remained unclear why he was on the roof, but he would not face charges. “Getting up there’s very difficult and I’ve got no idea how he did it,” he said. “He said he got up there when it was dark. “There was no sign of any burglaries or anything.”

Senior Sergeant Jill Dyson said Sen Const Atkins remained calm under difficult circumstances and communicated well with all emergency service members. She said Const Aitken acted as the go-between with the CFA, brought supplies to the rooftop and directed traffic to allow CFA access. “I am very proud of the actions of my members on the day,” she said. Sen Const Atkins said he was “pretty happy” with the outcome. “It’s better than being dragged into the boss’s office for a telling-off,” he said.

A ROOFTOP rescue in central Dandenong has earned praise for two police officers. Senior Constable Rob Atkins and Constable Bianca Aitken responded to calls from a Lonsdale Street shop owner who said he had an agitated man on the roof about noon on Saturday 1 February. “Just how to get up there was the main issue,” Sen Const Atkins said. “We had to just go through one of the shops and went to the old ladder out the back, up on an outhouse.” The man was wearing only shorts, was dehydrated and sunburnt and appeared to be in “a drug-induced state”. The unstable roof was littered with pieces of broken glass, nails and other debris. “It was a very hot day and it appeared that he had been on the rooftop for some time,” Sen Const Atkins said. “He was quite unpredictable. “He was in no condition to safely get himself and us down.” Sen Const Atkins stayed calm during negotiations. “When he fired up we backed off and left him to his own devices,” he said. “He didn’t say a lot at all and he didn’t want to speak to us. “We kept on telling him we were there to help him and explained what was going on the whole time.” Sen Const Atkins called for the CFA to attend with an extendable ladder and a cherry picker, and talked the man into

Science in action By CASEY NEILL DANDENONG North teacher Judith Sise loves science. And her work to share that passion with students at Lyndale Greens Primary School has earned her a national award. The BHP Billiton Science Teacher Award recognises teachers who engage students and contribute to science education in the wider community. Nominees from each state got together to share ideas and Ms Sise - the only primary teacher - was selected to attend the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in the USA in May. “It’s very uplifting when it’s said that you do something that’s very good and you make a difference to kids and science,” she said. “It was a big pat on the back.” Ms Sise will take four winning Australian students to the fair. “I can tap into science conferences that are run alongside it for teachers,” she said. “I can see all the work students can do across the world.” She still vividly remembers one high school zoology class where she dissected a dogfish. “From then on I was hooked,” she said. A class trip to chase creatures across mangroves was the icing on the cake. “To me, that’s what kids should do,” she said. “I thought ‘this is the way you learn, you don’t just sit in labs’. “There’s lots of kids who come back to tell me that they love science, and they’ve gone

Teacher Judith Sise has a passion for science. 114624 Picture: ROB CAREW on to study it,” she said. Ms Sise has collected a wealth of experience through volunteering to help the environment, working with councils, partnering with Melbourne Water and collaborating with science teachers from primary level to university. “My big thing to tell the other teachers was keeping a sense of awe and wonder,” she said. “Every time I meet a scientist or a Nobel Prize winner, it’s their sense of curiosity and awe

and wonder that hits you. “That’s what I think kids have to keep.” She combines investigations and group work with art, drama, maths, writing and more. “For children to actually learn science you have to think it through, act it out, paint it and draw it and talk about it,” she said. “You never teach the same lessons twice because kids ask different questions.”

Brand new 10 year lease Long-standing Vet Clinic Annual CPI increases Located in residential growth zone

PLACES Victoria’s decision to restructure last year seems to be paying dividends with land at its Dandenong eco-industrial park selling out. Bidders outnumbered the 19 lots available in the last land release, signalling a turnaround for Place Victoria’s financial position. Places Victoria acting CEO Peter Armstrong said the sell out at Dandenong followed a period of solid growth at Places Victoria’s residential estates in Epping and Officer. “We had to swallow a bitter pill last year, but the decisions made in early 2013 have resulted in a more focused and streamlined organisation that is demonstrating it can be a sustainable business entity,” Mr Armstrong said. LOGIS is a partnership between Places Victoria and Melbourne Water that will transform the 154 hectare former Dandenong treatment plant site into an industrial estate, generating about 5000 jobs for the Greater Dandenong area. Mr Armstrong said 25 companies from Australia and overseas had competed for land in stages six and seven at LOGIS, including some who were vying for multiple lots, with successful bidders including Australia’s largest tool distributor Hobson Engineering. All lots were contracted within a week of their release to the market, for a combined value of $19.5 million. Additional lots in stages six and seven at LOGIS will be released to the market early this year.

Lifts on the up By CASEY NEILL

two or three levels were constantly empty because the lifts were regularly out of service. “It’s impinging on the reputation and usage of car park,” he said. Mr Rendall said the lifts were “not meeting current standards” and the council had worked with the car park’s developer to secure a refurbishment. “We will then monitor them for three months and report back to council,” he said.

LIFTS at Springvale’s Number 8 car park will get a “major refurbishment” over the next five weeks, but just how often they’re expected to be in working order remains unclear. Councillor Sean O’Reilly at last Monday’s council meeting asked engineering services director Bruce Rendall what the minimum operating time was for the Balmoral Avenue lifts.

He said the council could consider replacing the lifts in the future if the refurbishment is unsuccessful, but would not confirm how reliable they were expected to be once they had been repaired.

Council’s undercover car unveiled FAMILY violence unit police can make discrete visits thanks to a new car from the council. City of Greater Dandenong last week handed Dandenong Inspector Bruce Kitchen the keys to one of its lease vehicles. “It’s an unmarked car,” Insp Kitchen said. “With our

family violence area, some people are sensitive to a marked police car. “We need discretion in some areas.” He said officers could use the car to visit victims and for surveillance. Mayor Jim Memeti said this was the second car the council had donated for police

use. “It’s a good to contribute in a way that will help the force and people in our community,” he said. “This is an ongoing partnership that the City of Greater Dandenong has with the local Victoria Police in our area.” - CASEY NEILL *Tuiio fee paid y MuliSkills

Connecting people and communities

Big sweet weekend IT WAS a big weekend for Springvale and its surrounds, with poffertjes and fireworks taking centre stage. Burden Park in Springvale South hosted the three-day Noble Park-Keysborough Lions Club summer festival from Friday to Sunday. The event raised money for the club to help the region’s needy and for Athol Road Primary School. There was live music, cultural

performances, a talent quest, multicultural food stalls, community displays, rides and a fireworks display on the Saturday night. Sandown Racecourse became home to all things Dutch on Saturday. The 40th annual Holland Festival featured traditional foods from poffertjes to oliebollen, kroketten and stroopwafels - games, traditional costumes, dancing and more.

Introducing your

School Principal Dr Roderick Crouch

Established in 1919, Dandenong High School is one of the oldest, largest and most culturally diverse Secondary schools in the state. During the past 5 years the school has undergone a period of intense change and redevelopment including a merge of 3 schools, the development of an innovative, collaborative learning model, the creation of a unique house structure and is nearing completion of Stage 3 of a 45 million dollar building project.

The school has successfully maintained a balance between tradition and innovation and our vision is to create an environment where all students can achieve success. In order to foster a real sense of belonging and connection to the school students are grouped in 7 Houses with 300 students from Years 7 - 12 in each House, a leadership team of 4 and 25 staff. Students learn in groups of 50 with a team of 3 teachers in architecturally designed, and technology rich learning spaces and learning is personalised to meet each students need. The curriculum is based on the principles of direct instruction, inquiry and discovery and we have an extensive, individualised Senior Studies program that provides the students with a wide range of pathways options. The school also has a strong student leadership program, a range of sporting and extracurricular activities and has achieved great success in the Performing and visual arts.

Welcome to Maranatha Christian School! Introduced in 1970 we are the longest serving Christian School in Victoria with campuses in Casey and Cardinia. I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Principal/CEO. An educator in several countries for nearly 30 years, I am committed to academic excellence, and assisting students to be the best they can be, becoming responsible global citizens and lifelong learners. Maranatha’s vision is to be an inclusive Christian learning community in partnership with home and church. Through a model of Christ centred education within a safe environment, we seek to inspire children to develop and use their God given gifts and talents. We do this by employing talented Christian teachers who are highly qualified and well regarded educators with the ability to build quality relationships with students. To be a student at Maranatha means to access opportunity - the opportunity to learn, develop, serve, grow and excel. These are accessed by participation in a rigorous, challenging and engaging curriculum. I also believe that in order for young people to succeed in an increasingly complex environment, they need a high quality education; to be taught skills to achieve success, and to think critically, enabling them to become good decision-makers in life. As new Principal/CEO, I look forward to meeting with you and embarking with your family on this journey of a life of learning and achieving our utmost for His Glory.

Cornish College is now in its third year of operation as the Uniting Church’s newest coeducational College based on 42 hectares of land several kilometres from Port Phillip Bay near Chelsea, Victoria. Community response to the new College has been overwhelming with student numbers having grown significantly. The College currently caters for 470 pre primary, primary and secondary students up to Year 11. The College’s VCE Beyond Boundaries program is an innovative approach to the delivery of senior school education, with students undertaking some of their studies off-site and online with the support of learning coaches. With a maximum capacity of 800 students, which is anticipated by 2018, there is already considerable demand for places with waiting lists at a number of levels. The College has excellent facilities with its own farm and wetland area. It is set in beautiful natural gardens with an abundance of bird life. The College has a nationally recognised curriculum linking ‘Education for a Sustainable Future’ with significant influences from Reggio Emelia and the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program. The curriculum is delivered via an integrated transdisciplinary approach in both primary and secondary areas. The College offers active music, performing arts, sport and cocurricular programs and is recognised for its excellent work in the creative arts. With organic vegetable gardens, a well established ‘Eco Kids’ program in the primary area and a number of environment based electives in the secondary area, there is a strong focus on sustainable living.

Sadly, the good results are just as quick and then just as easily gone. “I encourage people of all ages to look at how they cook and eat for long-term health,” she said. “Making small changes, such as controlling your portion sizes, is where the best health gains will be made.” Many people still have weight problems and may need to seek further assistance through surgical weight loss options to maintain a healthy weight. At St John of God Berwick Hospital, Complete Weight Loss Clinic and Lap Surgery Australia both offer a full range of dietician, psychology and surgical options to assist clients to obtain a healthy weight and maintain it.

BUSINESS SOUTH-EAST

Toyota closure a huge blow for all

On the scrap heap By CASEY NEILL “I FELT sick. That’s the only way to describe it.” Jill Wilcox said Toyota’s decision last week to stop making cars in Australia by 2017 was terrible for her Dandenong South company, Wilcox Metal Finishing, and others in Melbourne’s south-east. “We were all hoping that it wouldn’t happen,” she said. “We’re hoping to keep on going because we do have other customers. “But we’re going to lose our volume. The car industry is big volume. “It’s a disaster for the country.” Wilcox Metal Finishing has been in business for more than 50 years, is a third-generation family company and employs 23 people.

It puts rust-proofing on metal car components. About 80 per cent of its business is automotive. “We used to run three shifts, 24 hours a day a few years ago,” Ms Wilcox said. “That’s how much it’s declined with things going offshore. “We’re losing all these skills and factories.” Ms Wilcox said the company would now seek more work, including interstate, over the next three years. She said the car industry in Australia had been in decline for the past few years “because so much work is going off-shore anyway”. “If people had stepped in sooner, it could have been avoided,” she said. “I’m not saying one government or the other.

By CASEY NEILL

Wilcox Metal Finishing’s Jill Wilcox and Kaley Treverton worry about the company’s future. 114846 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS “I know they’ve had to prop up the industry but every nation in the world props up their car industry. “I would have liked to see more money go to Toyota as opposed to Holden and Ford.

“Toyota had 70-odd per cent of their production in Australia. “I think if they rewarded manufacturers who were actually making things here, rather than bringing in parts and assembling them here, it would have made a big difference.”

Nissan vows to keep on manufacturing By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS IT’S “business as usual” for Nissan’s casting plant in Dandenong despite the announced car-making closures of Ford, Holden and Toyota. Nissan Motor (Australia) spokesman Peter Fadeyev made the proclamation last Tuesday, a day after Toyota announced it would stop making cars in Australia by 2017.

“You could say we’re the last one standing,” Mr Fadeyev said, though noting Ford and Holden would retain a domestic engineering and car-design presence. Nissan Casting Australia’s Dandenong plant employs 143 full-time staff and 21 casual staff, with annual sales of more than $65 million. Its immediate outlook was “steady and plentiful”, Mr Fadeyev said.

The plant produces more than two million cast-metal components and after-sales accessory components a year for Nissan plants across the world. Isaacs MP Mark Dreyfus said Nissan’s ongoing commitment would help attract more investment. “This is an important vote of confidence for the skills of our local workers and Dandenong’s industry reputation.”

He blamed the government’s inaction for the loss of “thousands of Australian jobs in the automotive industry”, with 200,000 more jobs that indirectly rely on the car industry being at risk. “We must ensure Greater Dandenong remains an important manufacturing hub for Melbourne by supporting the companies we have and developing innovative industries,” he said.

AT LEAST six companies and 300 jobs in Melbourne’s south-east are on the line, following Toyota’s decision to leave Australia. South East Melbourne Manufacturers Alliance (SEMMA) executive officer Adrian Boden said Toyota was the biggest nail in the automotive manufacturing industry’s coffin. He said Toyota produced about 140,000 cars in Australia and purchased about 70 per cent of the components here, compared to about 50 per cent at Holden and Ford. “In December we had a number of companies who told us the Holden decision was going to make their life difficult but they could survive, but if Toyota left it would be a different question,” he said. He said preliminary investigations following last week’s announcement indicated about six companies in the south-east might go under, affecting up to 300 people. “There will be a number of others,” he said. Mr Boden said SEMMA representatives would visit companies in danger and look for opportunities for them to work with other SEMMA

members to save jobs. “You have to have growth to absorb them,” he said. “We don’t have that growth at the moment.” He said pumping money into innovation wasn’t the answer. “Manufacturing’s been innovating for 200 years. It happens all the time,” he said. “It’s how do we take to market those innovations? We need to market them overseas.” Mr Boden said a government ’buy Australian’ policy would help. “Don’t just buy on lowest price,” he said. Lyndhurst MP Martin Pakula met with Mr Boden last Friday. “We discussed the potential impact of the auto industry withdrawal on business owners, workers and their families, as well as the flowon effects for other small businesses that rely on trade in industrial zones in the south-east,” he said. “In the coming weeks, I will visit auto component manufacturers in Dandenong South to discuss the impact of these cuts and what assistance they might need.” Mr Pakula said the State Government needed to support businesses to adapt, to export and to diversify.

Good citizen’s life of service Wallace Werrett, at Dandenong RSL in 2006.

Obituary Wallace Robert Werrett Born: 9 October 1920 Died: 1 February 2014 DANDENONG Citizen of the Year and Medal of the Order of Australia recipient Wallace Werrett, was farewelled at Springvale Botanical Cemetery on 7 February. Daughter Marilyn Cookes said he passed away peacefully, at age 93. “Our father led a good life and a long life,” she said. Wal was born at the Maternity Hospital in Thomas Street, Dandenong, in 1920, the second son to Richard Frederick Werrett and Evelyn Violet Allan. He attended Keysborough Primary School, often riding there on his mother’s pony, Dolly - sister Jean perched in the saddle and Wal “clinging on for all life on the rump”. He enlisted in the Citizen’s Military Forces in 1938, was called up for full-time service in 1940 and transferred to the Second Australian Imperial Force (AIF) in 1941. He was discharged in July 1946 following operational service in Bougainville in 1944 and New Britain in 1945. In addition to his World War II service medals, he was mentioned in dispatches for distinguished service in the south west Pacific area. “He loved his years in service, reaching captain by the age of 22,” Marilyn said. She said the best outcome of her dad’s war days was meeting her mum, Edna Taylor, who was in the Australian Women’s Army Service. They had three children and had been married 42 years when Edna lost her cancer battle. They wed in 1947 in Brisbane. “Settling back in Dandenong, for over seven years dad and mum both worked tirelessly to operate and run various delicatessens and cake shops before

dad was approached by Angus Facey to join Frank Facey Real Estate Agency,” Marilyn said. Wal was a manager there for 20 years, retiring in 1977. “The usual car ride around the streets and district involved dad driving at snail’s pace with head turned left and right, constantly relaying what’s for sale, what’s been sold, how much it’s worth, how much was paid, who bought it... “ Marilyn said. “All us kids in the back would have our eyes planted firmly on the road ahead, wondering if he’d clip the parked car...” She recalled one day when he ran a red light and drove on, a police van with its siren blasting in pursuit. “When dad pulled slowly into our drive the policeman slowed down, wound down his window and said ‘hi Wal!’,” she said. Marilyn said her dad enjoyed public life and was well recognised in the streets of Dandenong and outer-Gippsland districts. “He worked selflessly in helping others, especially those in need - the young migrants to the area, the ex-service men and women through Legacy,” she said. Wal was Dandenong’s Citizen of the Year in 1982 and received a Medal of the Order of

Australia in 1985. He was the Dandenong Liberal Party president for 12 years and stood for Parliament, he was a Justice of the Peace and Dandenong Chamber of Commerce president, and received the Paul Harris Fellowship from the Rotary Club of Dandenong in 1994. Kay Poole was Wal’s constant companion during the last 20 years of his life. “Our family all love and think the world of Kay and are indebted to her,” Marilyn said. Wal’s friend of 39 years John Laughton spoke at the funeral on behalf of the Victorian RSL state president Major-General David McLachlan and the Dandenong-Cranbourne RSL’s members. Wal was an RSL member for 67 years and served on various councils and committees. “Wally was awarded Life Membership in 1964 - the league’s highest honour - the Meritorious Service Medal in 1984 and Life Membership with Gold Badge in 1993,” Mr Laughton said. “Wally was also a Life Member of the Dandenong RSL Club and a Life Member of the No. 3 District Board. “He was a wonderful Australian and a staunch RSL and community man.”

Armed robber nabs wallet A KNIFE-WIELDING thief robbed a 19-yearold in central Dandenong this month. Police said the victim, a Dandenong man, was walking north along Cleeland Street about 6am on 3 February when he saw a man pass by on the opposite side of the road. The man doubled back and approached the victim from behind, produced a large knife,

demanded his wallet and fled east on Olive Street with it. The thief is believed to be aged in his mid-thirties and Caucasian with short brown hair and rotten and missing teeth. He was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans during the robbery. Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 with any information. Police are searching for this man.

Police shocked by 200km/h POLICE caught a Lynbrook man driving 120 kilometres per hour over the speed limit with a child in his car in Dandenong South. About 1.40am on Saturday 8 February, Greater Dandenong Highway Patrol members were patrolling on Greens Road

when they saw a car speeding. They allege the car was travelling at 200km/h in an 80km/h zone. They stopped the Mercedes Benz coupe, were shocked to find the driver had a nine-year-

old child in the car, and immediately impounded the vehicle under hoon legislation. The 44-year-old driver is expected to be charged on summons with offences including speeding and speed dangerous.

SPORT

We’re in and we’re rapt! By JARROD POTTER ONLY 10 days before applications were due Dandenong City Soccer Club had not decided if it wanted to pursue a National Premier League (NPL) licence. After putting in countless hours to get the license bid and application completed, the club placed its name on the list of potential licensee and had to wait for the news. Last week the potential concept turned into a tangible NPL license - with Football Federation Victoria granting Dandenong City its license and ability to make its mark in the inaugural competition this season. Dandenong City’s senior men’s team will feature in NPL 1 - the second tier of the NPL structure - and square off against other local sides Kingston City and Springvale White Eagles and fight for promotion to the NPL.

Club president George Sabljak said the club was thrilled to play in the premier competition and for the entirety of the structure - from under-12 juniors through to senior men and women - being a priority for developing future Australian soccer stars. “We are extremely rapt, it was a very exhausting procedure with very little time and we really didn’t know whether we’d be successful or not but we were pretty ecstatic when we finally announced that we were one of the successful licensees,” Sabljak said. “It’s important - not many people are aware that soccer is the most participated sport in the country, bigger than Aussie rules and NRL together - and what we see the NPL is able to do is to continue on with that pathway and produce successful Kewells, Vikduas and guys like that.” The club is interested in maintain an FFV

Dandenong City players and committee members were thrilled to see City receive its licence to play in the Victorian National Premier League 114973 Picture: JARROD POTTER State Leagues and junior presence outside of the NPL model and was unsure whether the NPL teams would maintain the Dandenong City name or if it would be entered under a new title. “Absolutely if there’s enough demand for me then we will (have a community model club),” Sabljak said. “We can’t single out kids that don’t want to play in the NPL. “We’re still deciding whether we keep the

community club as Dandenong City Soccer Club and enter the NPL with a new name but that’s yet to be determined.” The club is also projecting a record number of junior players after 200 kids attended Dandenong City’s first junior training session for the year. Any interested kids are welcome to attend training on Wednesday and Friday nights, starting 6.30pm sharp at Frank Holohan Reserve, Baden Powell Drive, Endeavour Hills.

Racing Victoria’s Chairman of Stewards, Terry Bailey, oversaw the trials and said that the upgrade had achieved the desired result of a high quality surface that would serve the industry well in the future. “The track played extremely well and all the feedback from the jockeys was positive so we were happy to give it the tick of approval,” Terry Bailey said. “There was a good cover of grass and the track manager, Tim Bailey, has done a good job presenting the track as it is given all the hot weather we’ve experienced. “As a workhorse for the industry, this upgrade will ensure that Sandown offers the best surface possible for racing, particularly during the winter period when

they’re racing nearly every week.” The upgrade, which saw the entire course proper surface replaced, was a $3.2 million joint investment by the Victorian Government’s Victorian Racing Industry Fund (VRIF), the Melbourne Racing Club and Racing Victoria. The current Sandown Racecourse opened on June 19, 1965 before a crowd of 52,379. A week earlier more than 20,000 turned up to a free open day to inspect the only metropolitan racecourse in Australia opened in the 20th century. The course underwent a large redevelopment in the 1980’s and now, almost 30 years later, it was overdue for an upgrade to restore the consistent racing surface of both the Lakeside and Hillside tracks. In 2002 the track had a partial redevelopment with the introduction of the Lakeside and Hillside tracks making Sportingbet Park, Sandown the only metropolitan course with dual tracks. The project provided a boost for East Gippsland with the turf being grown at Lilydale Turf’s farm at Lindenow South, near Bairnsdale.

By JARROD POTTER DANDENONG Club Bowls Club member Olive Harris earned herself an impressive bowls title this week - as she is now known as a regional bowls champion of champions. Travelling around to Clayton, Hampton and Melbourne Bowls Clubs, Harris, from Endeavour Hills, swept the field of 42 clubs to stand tall as the region’s finest bowler. Harris won her five matches and earned the title of Bowls Victoria Sandbelt Region champion of champions. In the final held on Wednesday, Harris easily bested Desiree Macauley from Caulfield Park/Alma Bowls Club to take the championship with a 25-11 victory. Harris said she felt lucky to take the win, but was pleased to now have the title of champion of champions on her bowling achievements list.

“I think I was just lucky there when she couldn’t grab her weight - I was lucky, but it was nice,” Harris said. Her next big challenge will be in Bendigo in April to play all the other regional bowls champion of champions’ winners from around the state in a test to become Victoria’s supreme bowls maestro for 2014. “I think I’ll come up with some tough opposition, I think the other side of town has a lot of good players too,” Harris said. Harris has won the club’s competition singles back-to-back. Dandenong Club Bowls Club secretary Carol Coshutt said the win was an outstanding success for Olive and made the club exceptionally delighted. “We’re very proud of her and it’s a great achievement for her and recognition for our club as well,” Coshutt said.

Showcasing just a few of her tournamentwinning skills, Dandenong’s Olive Harris earned her spot in a state-wide tournament after winning her way through the Sandbelt Pictures: JARROD POTTER region. 114975

Struck by Lightning

VWCA Premier Firsts - round 18

Lions’ King

By JARROD POTTER IT’S finally WNBL finals’ time. The Dandenong Rangers head to face Bendigo Spirit in Bendigo on Sunday afternoon, following the Rangers’ third loss in a row - this time conceding their second loss on the road to Adelaide this year. The Lightning struck early against the Rangers racing out to a 43-24 lead by half time as Angela Marino (18 points) and Jenny Screen (10 points) found their range. Despite a 36-23 final term to reel in an Adelaide 21-point lead, Dandenong couldn’t hit its straps hard enough and fell six-points short at the final siren as a disappointing season for the Lightning drew to a close. Jenna O’Hea (29 points, 5 assists) led the charge in her usual manner while Alice Kunek (16 points), Kayla Pedersen (13 points, 7 rebounds) and Natalie Novosel (10 points, 8 rebounds) all chipped in for double-digit tallies. It’s not an ideal lead in to the finals for Dandenong - conceding losses to Bendigo, Melbourne and now Adelaide consecutively to finish the home and away season with a 16-8 record, only besting Townsville by its record against the Fire this year. Dandenong heads to Bendigo for the first semifinal and the right to host the WNBL grand final for the victor. The Spirit has beaten the Rangers in their last nine contests and Dandenong will hope to make amends for that record on Sunday afternoon at 1pm.Tickets are on sale via Dandenong Basketball Association, with payments able to be made over the phone at the Dandenong Basketball Stadium on 9794 7192 or in person at the stadium. Tickets to be collected at Bendigo Stadium under the family name and all Rangers’ fans will be seated together directly behind the Ranger’s bench.

Hopes in deep water By JARROD POTTER

1118617-CB7-14

GREATER Dandenong added another sport to its ever-burgeoning sports club list with the South Eastern Phoenix bringing a water polo presence to the city. The Phoenix, coached by Australian Stingers’ and Victorian Tigers’ player Elise Rossato, is based out of the Noble Park Aquatic Centre (NPAC) and president Daniel Di Manno said the club was proud to be in the facility and helping grow the sport in the region. “It’s been really, really enjoyable so far and there’s been a really good response from everyone,” Di Manno said. “This is ideal - outdoor pool, it’s brand new, it’s deep enough and they (NPAC) are happy to have us here. “There’s a really broad range, in terms of the demographic of people in the area, so we just want as many people playing water polo.”

Di Manno said the learning curve for the sport is relative easy and players can pick up the basics quickly. “It’s a unique sport - it’s one of those ones people aren’t necessarily aware of until they see it,” Di Manno said. “It’s a very basic sport to learn and a really safe sport to play.” The club hopes to enter a variety of teams into this year’s Water Polo Victoria competition and host team trainings for Victorian and Australian level teams at NPAC, on top of running a number of sports and schools programs for teams and schools throughout Greater Dandenong and beyond. The Phoenix also want to become one of the premier sporting clubs, to show the capabilities of the sport to the local community. “Just want to see how high we could set the bar and to show not just water polo, but other local sporting clubs,” Di Manno said.

South Eastern Phoenix head coach Elise Rossato and president Daniel Di Manno were thrilled to launch the club at Noble Park Aquatic Centre on Saturday. 114980 Picture: JARROD POTTER “What can be achieved with working with local government, councils, facilities and sporting bodies - so we really do want to push the boundaries of what we’re doing with all the courses we’re running as well.” This year the Phoenix will also

launch Australia’s first access all abilities program to help get even more people involved in water polo. For more information on joining the Phoenix, contact the club at info@southeasternphoenix.com or visit the web site www.southeasternphoenix.com.

WOEFUL bowling from Brunswick Park (9/151) allowed Dandenong (192) to get away with a middling batting effort to take the points in the Victorian Women’s Cricket Association. Brunswick Park top scored for Dandenong in effect as the visitors waywardly hurled a superhumanly bad 58 extras, including 36 wides. Of the Lions’ batting effort, Chelsea Moscript (35) top-scored in a dour 70-ball effort, posting a 78-run opening stand with captain Erica Kershaw (30). Alana King (22), pushed up the order with Kelly Applebee and Sarah Elliott on Victorian duty, hit some clean fours down the ground and gained help from all-rounder Emma Gallagher (12). From there the run-rate needed increasing and Dandenong succumbed to the Brunswick Park bowling with a ball to spare in its innings. Brunswick Park was anchored ably by opener Holly Hyder (55), but she couldn’t find another willing partner to help chase the total. The Lions’ pride started to roar into life with Lara Croft (3/21), Calista Moffat (2/11) and King (2/16) making a steady supply of Brunswick Park wickets. Hyder’s scalp was offered up to Croft with a straight-ball that blew apart the stumps, leaving the task too great for Brunswick Park. Gallagher (1/27) kept things tight with the new ball and Primrose Wohlers (1/28) snared a scalp in her second first XI appearance. Dandenong hosts Melbourne on Saturday at Greaves Reserve.

Victorian Premier Cricket round 17 (week one) DANDENONG Panthers posted their best effort of the new year, storming to 297 on the back of a Mick Sweeney (100) ton. Sweeney posted his first triple-figure score in Victorian Premier Cricket to smash aside Northcote on day one of their round 17 clash. Tom Donnell (46) and James Wilcock (43) also performed well with the blade.

NORTH DANDENONG v SPRINGVALE SOUTH

*4WD, vans, 8cyl, special oil & imported vehicles may cost extra

TOP of the pops again, Springvale South (8/245) found its form at the right time with a clinical bowl-out of North Dandenong (167). Jurgen Andersen (54 not out) was the Northerner to shine in tandem with Clay McCartney (36) and captain Shane Clark (23). From many places did the Bloods get their scalps as Aaron Morrison (3/29) and captain Craig Slocombe (2/9) led the way. North Dandenong would need to bowl out Berwick twice for a pittance to stand a chance to qualify for finals while Springvale South host Coomoora for the chance to book a home semifinal at Harold Road the following week.

BARRING a miraculous outright victory this round against Hallam Kalora Park, Narre Warren (152) will be relegated to Turf 2 following Coomoora’s (153) nervy, but successful chase. Paul Hill (43 not out) stepped up when the Roos needed him most, guiding the chase with help around him from Rahoul Pankania (30) and Luke Wenke (20). Narre defended its meagre tally admirably with Jarryd Straker (3/45) and Pramod Liyanagamage (3/40) reeling off 18 overs each while the economical workhorse was Kaushalya Weeraratne (1/30) from an impressive 21.2 overs. The Magpies chipped away at the Kangaroos’ batting attack, but couldn’t prise Hill from the crease. It boiled down to the last wicket stand between Hill and Chris Konings (12) to keep Coomoora above Narre Warren in Turf 1. The number-11 Konings held on to post a 37-run partnership that will go down in the club’s favourite lore.

PARKFIELD (51 and 2/86) was finally knocked off the top of the perch as Buckley Ridges (241) devastated the home side’s batting. The Luke Fletcher (6/23) show had its primetime opening when needed most as the Englishman rattled through the Bears as if they were mere Teddy Bears. Steve Spoljaric (14) top-scored in the woeful first innings with Travis D’Souza (12 not out) holding onto his wicket as well. Wes Nicholas (3/15) spun out a trio of Bears to cap off the happy first innings hunting for Buckley Ridges. Bowling to boost percentage, Buckley Ridges snared a couple more wickets before Parkfield was allowed to exit the arena. Buckley Ridges hosts Dandenong West and Parkfield heads to Heinz Southern Districts with the Cobras’ season on the line.

DANDENONG WEST v LYNDALE THE Bulls rattled through Lyndale (150). Walid Ghauri (5/21) secured his first five-wicket haul in the association as he worked his way through the visitors’ order. Rory Ingram (36) stood tall in a captain’s knock but the rest of his attack failed to show up. Peter Atkinson (2/49) and Andrew Harry (2/19) claimed a couple of wickets apiece to complete the rout. Lyndale needs an outright victory against Mordialloc this round and a loss for Heinz Southern Districts to qualify for finals.

HARD yards were run by Marasinghe Perera (64) and Johan Vorster (56) to guide Noble Park (9/234) to victory over Croydon (8/233). The Bulls’ charge was led by Perera and Vorster through the middle overs - adding 96 for the third wicket partnership before both fell in succession. It left Mevan Fernando (35) and the tail to wag their way through another 80 runs. With help from Dirk Vandergert (18) and crucial runs from number 11 Anthony Salomon (11 not out), the Bulls snuck past the Croydon total in the 65th over. The win consolidates Noble Park’s fourth place position on the VSDCA ladder and secured its spot in the finals with two rounds to go. Noble Park heads to Melton this round for its last two-dayer.
