î Ž Dandenong’s most needy fall victim to the ...

Most greedy THIEVES have stolen $2000 from Dandenong’s most needy. Dandenong and District Benevolent Society members arrived to find their Thomas Street opportunity shop and headquarters ransacked on Thursday morning. “They’ve taken all our food vouchers, all our money, petrol vouchers ... “ secretary Barbara Siddall said. “Anything that they could lay their hands on. “It is shocking. “The treasurer walked in and found all the mess. They’d been in the office and thrown everything everywhere.� Ms Siddall said the store had “a big heavy door at the back that was battered down�. “It’s a rotten thing to do,� she said. “People who’ve been calling up, we can’t help them.� She said the volunteer group gave about $72,000 worth of food away last year, plus other goods. Fiona Melville manages the shop each Thursday and said police had taken fingerprints from the scene and thieves had broken into a filing cabinet. “We’ve had $2000 worth of vouchers stolen,� she said. “They trashed the place. They threw stuff every-

where. There was no need for that. “They’ve used behind the counter as a toilet.� Ms Melville said some groceries from Foodbank were untouched, but the vouchers allowed people to supplement the parcels with meat and vegetables. “We’ve got nothing like that now,� she said. “Who would steal from a charity?� She said Dandenong and District Benevolent Society mainly assisted new immigrants, the homeless and other people who “needed a hand from time to time�. It provides food, emergency relief and support programs to alleviate stress on household and personal budgets and strives to make sure families and individuals receive adequate daily nutrition. The group aims to develop sustainable and resilient individuals and communities. It now needs donations to continue its good work. “Any help people can give us would mean a lot,� Ms Melville said. “There are good people left out there.� People can drop goods in reasonable condition at the shop, or arrange for volunteers to pick up larger items. Take donations to 305 Thomas Street, Dandenong, or call 9793 3736.

POLICE are yet to lay charges over an arson spree in Springvale last Monday night. Greater Dandenong CIU Acting Detective Sergeant Luke Kirton said they had interviewed a 49-year-old Springvale man over at least four blazes, but had released him pending further inquiries. “We’re reviewing CCTV footage and the investigation is ongoing,” he said. Springvale’s former police station and court house on Royal Avenue were set alight about 9.30pm on 17 February. The buildings are vacant and expected to be demolished to make way for a residential development. Neighbour Joe Rechichi discovered large flames coming from the site as he drove home. “As I turned the corner, I saw there were all these flames near my house,” he said. “I ran around my fence line to check no sparks had got into my firewood before I went to bed. “The front of the police station is well and truly gutted. “If the court house was put on fire, first my house would have gone.

A WOMAN narrowly escaped from two men who cornered and threatened her at Sandown Park railway station on 12 February. Greater Dandenong CIU detectives are appealing for any information about the incident, and for a man who assisted the victim to come forward. The 19-year-old was walking north to the station along Corrigan Road, Noble Park, about 5.15am. A dark sedan with tinted windows and no registration plates approached from behind and pulled in front of her at Alamein Street, blocking her path. The passenger, a man dressed in black, exited the vehicle, ran toward the woman and threatened her while the driver stayed behind the wheel. The victim ran to the station and received help from a man who appeared to be on his way to work. The man, who was chasing her, then turned and ran back to the vehicle and left the area.

ARSON chemists have deemed the Potter Street fire that killed a Dandenong toddler on 7 February non-suspicious. The three-year-old boy’s mother told police she’d locked him inside the home to attend to duties outside, and spotted the fire about 10 minutes later. Smoke and heat kept her from returning inside to rescue him. A Victoria Police spokeswoman could not confirm the fire’s cause, and said police were preparing a report for the Coroner.

There’s no better twilight friend than a melodious thrush FOR some time over summer, husband Don and I have been privileged at twilight to be serenaded by a melodious feathered songster which perches in the trees on our block adjoining our home. There is a variety of trees on the block, and our visiting songster set us exploring our ornithological books to endeavour to identify our guests. We are now certain it is a thrush. We already have regular guests with dozens of pigeons, occasionally doves, a rather arrogant magpie but the thrush has not been a visitor in the half a century plus that we have lived here. My late father, Rowland Archer, formerly of Ryecroft, Lyndhurst, was an ornithologist and one of his collections was birds eggs from all over the world.

MY VOICE A MOMENT WITH

MARG STORK After his death, my late mother bequethed them to the Melbourne Museum. At Ryecroft, I remember when I was growing up, we were frequently visited by Grosby Morrison and Alice Chisholm, both leading Melbourne naturalists. Dad had special cabinets lined with cotton woool to house both his Australian and overseas collections or eggs from ostrich eggs to humming birds eggs... the sublime to the ridiculous in the variations of size.

Dr Maurice Burton in his encyclopedia describes thrushes as being slender billed songbirds of small to medium size. He writes that the plumage in most chicks is inconspicuous because it is often grey or brown, but is sometimes chestnut, blue, green, black, or pale buff. Our visitor is buff shaded. Most thrushes eat insects but also spiders, tiny reptiles, worms, snails and other animals. Many enjoy fruit and berries in the autumn and winter. Our songster enjoys the crumbled up bread I give to all our feathered friends twice or three times a day and none of them are adverse to leftover cooked vegetables. Where are they now? In a faded and tattered copy of

the Dandenong Journal printed on Wednesday evening, 24 January 1951, available at the time for the princely sum of three pence, I came upon a story of two Dandenong art students who hitch-hiked 1000 miles (1500 kilometres) for five shillings each. The two girls, Prudence Boileau and Margaret Edwards, were on a painting expedition and holiday. Their feat made headlines in the Wangarratta Chronicle. The girls said since they left Melbourne they had “hardly walked a yard”. They first passed through Wangarratta then Canberra with their sights set on Sydney and fulfilled their intial plans to be home again on the Thursday night. Their total expenses were lessened when they sold two water colour paint-

ings for 10 shillings each and also because of the helpfulness of the people with whom they came into contact. So successful was the trip, the two girls said they were then planning to tramp Tasmania armed with their paint cases and palettes. I would love to hear from anyone who knows what happened to Prudence and Margaret after their artistic adventures. Let me know at journal@ starnewsgroup.com.au Red Cross Australia Red Cross Australia is calling for help during its annual tin-rattle. Noble Park’s Vajira Ekanayake needs volunteers for a fund-raising drive between 10am and 3pm on 1 March at Police and Jacksons roads in Mulgrave. Call him on 0401 178 436 to lend a hand.

LOOKING BACK

- Compiled by the Dandenong and District Historical Society 50 years ago 24 February 1964 Hospital ball conflict ‘Mayor can please himself’ Dandenong council will tell the Dandenong and District Hospital Auxiliary that the mayor can please himself whether or not to sponsor the annual hospital ball. In a letter to council on Monday night, the auxiliary expressed disappointment that the present mayor (Cr Downard) has withdrawn mayoral sponsorship of this year’s hospital ball. The decision announced after the committee meeting was that the auxiliary will be informed that the booking of the town hall is available if the auxiliary requires it for the hospital ball. Council considered that it was entirely a matter for the mayor to decide whether or not to sponsor a function, as he saw fit. On the question of the future association be-

tween the council and the auxiliary, the council felt that it could not commit future mayors on the line of action they should take. 20 years ago 24 February 1994 $55 Million Dandy boost Investments of $55 million in Dandenong were officially opened last week by Premier Jeff Kennett. The projects have seen the employment of more than 100 local people at the Cussons factory in Hammond Road and the Yakult complex in Monterey Road. The Japanese-based Yakult company has invested $30 million in its fermented milk plant, a move Mr Kennett said was important for Dandenong. He said “Yakult’s long-term investment is one of a number of positive indicators for industrial and employment growth in Dandenong, following the severe contraction of the region’s industrial base during the recession.”

A SPRINGVALE teen had a memorable Valentine’s Day for all the wrong reasons. Police received reports of a man waving around a handgun on Parkmore Road, Keysborough, about 5.30pm on 14 February. Officers arrived and instructed the 17-yearold to drop the weapon, and he quickly complied. The weapon turned out to be a fake. He was bailed to answer charges of possessing an imitation firearm at the Children’s Court.

Five years ago 24 February 2009 When the Journal photographer Wayne Hawkins headed out to cover the bushfires that engulfed the areas north, east and south-east of Melbourne on 7 February, little did he know that two weeks later the death toll from Australia’s worst ever natural disaster would reach more than 200. Fires that have so far burnt 400,000 hectares and wiped out several communities in their path began on 7 February, dubbed Black Saturday as temperatures soared to 46.4 degrees. Hawkins, a seasoned photographer, who covered the 1983 Ash Wednesday fires, the 1997 Ferny Creek fires and the Halls Gap fires in 2006, first felt the intensity of the condition when he was called out to cover fires at Bunyip State Park near Pakenham. “I was shaking with the camera from the wind. You could hardly stand up,” he said.

100 years ago 24 February 1914 The Electric Light Installation at Dandenong On Sunday night a start was made with the lighting of the town by electricity. Those who took part in the proposal and carried matters to a successful issue are to be congratulated. We are informed that an official opening ceremony is to be arranged at an early date. The street lights at present number about 50, and the illuminating power therefrom is a distinct advantage as compared with “lights” hitherto provided. There is every likelihood of the number being increased in the near future; judging by the requests already made to the shire council, and no doubt applications of this nature from ratepayers will receive favourable consideration.

SPECIALISTS are struggling to find effective treatments for “epidemic” levels of the illicit stimulant drug ‘ice’, says the magistrate at the south-eastern-based drug court. Tony Parsons sits on the state’s only drug court in Dandenong, which oversees 60 offenders in Melbourne’s south-east diverted onto communitybased drug treatment orders. They take part in a two-year intensive treatment and counselling regime as an alternative to a jail sentence. Five years ago, ice - also called crystal methamphetamine - was barely a factor in criminal cases, Mr Parsons says. Heroin remains the most common substance abused by the court’s defendants, but half of the drug court’s offenders are using ice and half of those offenders combine heroin and ice. Mr Parsons says some heroin users take ice because it keeps them awake to enjoy their high; ice users take heroin to help them sleep. “It’s rapidly making the picture more complicated. It’s epidemic in its proportion. “It’s become such a common feature in such a short space of time. It’s such a new problem that the therapeutic community haven’t made a lot of progress in treatments. “We don’t have the tools (such as methadone medication for heroin) because it’s such a new phenomenon.” Mr Parsons said research into substitute drugs was in its “infancy”, such as trials of the ADHD-medication dexamphetamine in England and New South Wales. In the court’s program, some offenders were trying anti-depressive medication and cognitive therapy group sessions.

A NOBLE Park man has narrowly escaped jail over an illegal abalone haul. Moorabbin Magistrates’ Court heard Fisheries Victoria officers saw the 43-yearold emerging from the water in the Ricketts Point Marine Protected Area with 401 abalone - 205 undersized - on 11 August last year. They told the court they saw him diving at 11pm, before he turned his torch off and returned to shore. As officers approached him he ran back to into the water, throwing away some of his diving equipment. Magistrate Luisa Bazzani sentenced the man to six months’ jail, suspended for two years, ordered him to pay a $2000 fine and placed him on a five-year order prohibiting him from taking or possessing abalone. All of his diving equipment was forfeited. The daily bag limit per person for abalone is five, with no more than two greenlip. Fisheries Victoria executive director Ross McGowan said abalone poaching threatened sustainability. “Restrictions are in place to help protect these resources and ensure that they are appropriately shared among users,” he said. “Anyone who sees or suspects illegal fishing activity is urged to call the 24-hour reporting line, 13FISH.”

Dandenong Drug Court magistrate Tony Parsons relishes his role in getting lives back on track. 115268 A report by drug research group Turning Point released last year found ice-related ambulance call-outs jumped significantly across Melbourne in 2011-’12. Call-outs in Greater Dandenong rose from nine in 2010-’11 to 30 in 2011-’12 - the third highest municipality in Melbourne. In Casey, attendances rose from 11 to 25. Mr Parsons laments the toll of the “terrible drug” that elicits psychotic, violent and risk-taking behaviour, such as brazen driving, not to mention the brain damage that is “rarely 100 per cent” reversible. “The other research is if you’re a

regular user, it takes five to 10 months of abstinence before the effects reverse. That’s why it’s important this order is two years so we can hang onto them. “It’s a terrible drug. It makes people utterly fearless. They don’t seem to have understanding of the consequences of their behaviour. “All their inhibitions are gone. It seems to give people the strength of Superman. “People who take ice don’t sleep. When people don’t have sleep for 10 days, that’s when psychotic behaviour emerges.” See next week’s Journal for an exclusive report from inside the Dandenong drug court.

Let there be coats RE: Bunny busters (Dandenong Journal, 17 February). THERE is a simple answer to problems such as these - let every lady in Australia be allowed (should they desire) to purchase a rabbit-skin coat. Super warm in winter and very nice to look at. Fox skin is the same. In a very short time the vermin that exists would be gone. Also, the bunny pictured is a hare and the fox that can chase that down is faster than Mr Bolt. Malcolm McKay, via web.

Sold out RE: On the scrap heap (Dandenong Journal, 17 February). WE have sold this country down the drain and need to reverse the devastation that is happening as more and more manufacturing goes overseas! I looked for SPC tinned products at the supermarket and couldn’t find any or many on the shelves as SPC have been replaced with supermarketbrand tins. It’s time for the government to have a hard look at the state of the nation. Bruce Ruxton and those of his ilk would turn in their graves at the state of Australian manufacturing and its demise and it certainly isn’t acceptable. The floodgates were opened a long time ago and we were told not to worry and now look at what we are living with poverty, unemployment and no future for our children as foreign investors buy up our homes to rent to us! Cybil, via web.

Solved like a shot RE: Bunny busters (Dandenong Journal, 17 February). IF the school contacts the Sporting Shooters’ Association of Australia (SSAA) at their Box Hill office they will find the SSAA have various roles with government authorities for vermin control in and around Melbourne and would be able to provide some assistance for no cost.

A MAN has been ordered to pay back more than $2000 to a Keysborough supermarket after going on a cosmetics stealing spree. Shane Ronald Thompson, 30, of Dandenong, admitted to entering the Woolworths store with his partner and stealing a large amount of cosmetics on 25 November 2011. He then returned 11 minutes later for another heist. During an inventory check, it was found 77 cosmetic items were missing, totalling $2208.93. After being arrested in June 2012, Thompson told police he sold off the cosmetics for drugs. Police prosecutor Ian Vandenbosch told the court neither Thompson nor his partner, both using drugs at the time, were able to remember specific details. Thompson’s lawyer said the accused’s life had turned around since becoming a father in early 2012. Thompson had himself been raised in a separated family “wracked by domestic violence”, his lawyer said. He had been chroming with spray paints when 11, moving onto “his nemesis” heroin, which was behind his lengthy history of thefts and driving offences. At the time of the cosmetic theft, he and his partner were homeless, in an “itinerant lifestyle” and using heroin. Thompson has since complied with a methadone treatment program, become full-time employed and is living with his young family in private rental accommodation. Magistrate Julie O’Donnell noted Thompson’s behaviour had changed significantly, fining him $800 with conviction, but taking “no further action” for the accused’s breach of a suspended sentence. –Cameron Lucadou-Wells

Tall tales of makin’ bacon By RUSSELL BENNETT THE Dandy pig’s house was made of brick, but its true foundation was built around mateship, and community. And on 16 February at the Dandenong Workers Club, more than 50 former Dandy Hams and Bacon employees came together to remember the good times, when - to them the mateship of their colleagues made their jobs a highlight of each week. The stories that filled the room brought life back to a company that was once one of the three titans of local industry, alongside Heinz and General Motors Holden. Ron Chivers, now 84 years old, started at Dandy Bacon as a maintenance carpenter in 1970. He was thrown in the deep end, having to learn on the job, but working in what he described as “a well-oiled organisation” and “a tight, professional ship” made his job so much easier. He went on to become the company’s social club president and has organised reunions

of former employees since. Former Dandy sales manager Melville Wangman, 80, has suffered three strokes in the past 12 months. Though he struggles with names now, he still remembered every face in the room at the Workers Club. He said his 12 years with the company - starting from when he drove delivery vans in 1968 were “an absolute joy”. “Everyone knew everyone else,” said Mr Wangman, a former butcher by trade. “Everyone had mateship and support from each other and we all had an ingrained knowledge of the industry and what it was all about.” The Robertson brothers Chris, Stewart and Steve - are all former Dandy employees and each of them made the journey to the Workers Club for the reunion.

Chris was on the production line for nine years; Stewart in sales for four years; and Steve in accounts and in the office for 14 years - it was his first-ever job from 1974 to 1989. “It was just fantastic to work there. We had to learn fast but we had great teachers along the way,” he said of the company that employed 350 locals at its peak. “They taught me how to work.” Prior to this month’s reunion, it had been while between drinks for these faithful Dandy employees and Mr Chivers doesn’t know if, or when, the next will take place. He’s calling on as many former employees of the company as possible to help document the factory’s 70-year history, which he wants to see presented to the Dandenong Historical Society. To help out, call Mr Chivers on 9792 4618.

sault charges and last week unsuccessfully argued for a further adjournment of their 3 March hearing on the basis they couldn’t afford a lawyer. Magistrate Jack Vandersteen refused because the case had been already adjourned last July. “That’s not a fair trial, Your Honour. What a lovely legal system! That sucks s***!” one mumbled.

STORIES of former Dandenong mayor Maurie Jarvis’s efforts for his community are still emerging, more than a decade after his death. Former Dandenong Bacon employees revealed a couple about the former sales manager and delivery driver at a reunion last week. One of Maurie’s team members said the roof of his new sedan rusted in a matter of days. General Motors Holden denied it was their problem, but an outraged Maurie in no time secured repairs at no cost. Maurie organised housing commission accommodation for another co-worker who remains in the same Dandenong home more than 40 years later.

Dandenong Magistrates’ Court last week heard he was unsupervised and swerving side-to-side while travelling about 70 km/h in a 100 zone when police pulled him over. He stopped his car on the roadside, sticking about 40 centimetres into the right lane, then crashed into another car when officers directed him to move to the left-hand roadside. He was fined $1000 without conviction for driving an unregistered vehicle, failing to display L-plates and failing to give way. “The fastest way for a young man to get into trouble is through driving,” Magistrate Jack Vandersteen said.

Street in a jam By CASEY NEILL EDWARD Avenue in Dandenong is so choked with parked cars that it’s an accident waiting to happen, residents say. But City of Greater Dandenong won’t consider increasing parking restrictions for at least six months. Resident Colin Gibbons said the problem started when a new mental health centre opened on Cleeland Street about five months ago. “When they started building it we asked that a traffic impact study be done,” he said. “Nobody seems to know where it is or what the figures were on it. “None of the residents were spoken to.” Mr Gibbons said staff and visitors parked in the narrow residential streets around the centre. Parking on one side of Edward Avenue is restricted to two hours from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, and there’s no parking on the other side between 8.30am and 4.30pm on weekdays. “After 4.30pm they’re there on both sides of the street,” Mr Gibbons said. “It becomes a one-way street. “Residents are actually having to do a three-point turn to get into their driveway.” He said weekend parking was completely unrestricted which is when the problem was at its worst. Mr Gibbons said a fire truck recently drove 50 metres into the street before parked cars made it too narrow and the

Edward Avenue is choked with cars each weekend, residents say. truck had to reverse out. “If there’s a fire in the street, what’s going to happen?” he said. He said there was a primary school around the corner but it was no longer safe for children to play in the street and that he now parked at a neighbour’s home on the street’s corner to make sure he could get out. Cars regularly meet nose to nose and are unable to pass each other. “We’ve have had a couple of people want to come to blows,” he said. “Somebody’s going to get hurt here.” Following complaints, the council sent letters to residents asking if they wanted tougher parking restrictions. Mr Gibbons said most of his neighbours told him they didn’t understand it so didn’t reply. “The council has taken their non-response as ‘we don’t want

to have the parking changed’,” he said. “This is wrong.” A resident who’s lived on the street for almost 30 years, who did not want to be named, said there’d never been such a dangerous problem with parking before. He puts bollards out in the street to clear a path to exit his property. City of Greater Dandenong engineering services director Bruce Rendall said the council sought community feedback following a resident request for extended restrictions in Edward Avenue. “The community feedback did not support a change to the restrictions currently in place,” he said. “Council would be happy to reinvestigate this issue in six months’ time and would be happy to meet with Mr Gibbons about his concerns.”

GABRIELLE Williams hopes to keep Dandenong in ALP hands at November’s State Election. She’s been selected as the party’s candidate for the seat, with current Labor MP John Pandazopoulos to step down after almost 22 years. “I have worked in and around the Dandenong area over several years while employed by the local Federal Member (for Bruce), Alan Griffin,” Ms Williams told the Journal last week. “It is important that Dandenong has the benefit of strong representation and effective advocacy. “I hope to be part of a Labor government that listens and responds to community needs, creates opportunity and offers greater support for Dandenong’s schools, hospitals and public transport.” Ms Williams, who works as a project manager for the University of Melbourne’s Vice-Chancellor,

said it was an honour to follow in Mr Pandazopoulos’ footsteps. “Somebody who has had such a successful parliamentary career and enjoyed such long-standing support from the local community,” she said. She said the State Government had “largely neglected” the Dandenong community over the past three years. “I look forward to working hard for the people of Dandenong and to ensuring they are given a strong voice in the lead-up to the election and, with their support, beyond,” she said. Ms Williams has worked as an advisor to state government ministers as well as Mr Griffin. She has experience in the legal and community sectors, working as a lawyer at Baker and McKenzie and serving as a director and secretary of a Victorian disability not-for-profit. The Victorian State Election will take place on 29 November.

Gabrielle Williams is the ALP’s candidate for Dandenong for this year’s State Election.

ANNE Whitehead became a tutor for new migrants as a way to help the community during retirement. But the volunteer has found she’s learning as much as her students. Noble Park AMES needs more people like Ms Whitehead for informal one-onone English lessons. Tutors help students learn everyday language for transport, socialising and shopping, to help them settle into their new home and connect to the community. Ms Whitehead has been working with Chinese migrant Yifang Jiang since October. The mother of two young girls is a university graduate and ran a business back home. “What I did when we first

met was that we just talked,” Ms Whitehead said. “I found out about her and her family, where she came from and what she likes. “She’s a very good reader. She’s an excellent speller. “She’s frightened about speaking because she’s frightened of saying the wrong word.” Ms Whitehead said she remembered coming to Australia from England at age 22. “You want to learn because you want to be able to get a job and you want to integrate and make friends,” she said. “I just have so much admiration for somebody who comes to another country where they don’t speak the language.” She said she’s learning as much as Ms Jiang - about Chinese culture and the English language.

“What has been interesting is it’s the pronunciation that’s the difficulty,” she said. “You suddenly realise how difficult the English language is. “It’s been really interesting trying to find a way of breaking down the sounds of words.” Ms Whitehead said Ms Jiang’s confidence had improved and the process was rewarding. Volunteer tutor program coordinator Nada Railic said the tutoring supplemented formal classes at AMES. Tutors receive comprehensive training - with a new round starting next month - and are asked to volunteer two hours a week. They have to be fluent in spoken and written English but don’t need to know another language. Call Ms Railic on 8558 8804 or email railicn@ames. net.au to get involved.

Tabs on pokies By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS GREATER Dandenong may be set to roll the dice on a “strengthened” gambling policy against extra poker machines in the municipality. Councillors will vote on a report calling for a “revised and strengthened” gambling policy by October due to the “financial stress, family tension and ill health” faced by residents addicted to poker machines. The report anticipates the State Government “in future” would be likely to revise regional caps on poker machine numbers, including the 989-machine cap in Greater Dandenong. Recently, the council has not opposed applications for five extra machines at Noble Park RSL and six extra at Albion Hotel. It had reasoned in both cases that its opposition would have been unlikely to sway the arbiter, the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regu-

lation. The council is expecting further applications for more poker machines this year. Councillor Matthew Kirwan said the council’s policy needed to take a “stronger … more effective stand”. He said a set of criteria should be used to “generate” whether the council opposes extra poker machines at a venue. “By having a policy that has a set of criteria that automatically generates a recommendation, we will have a solid, defensible basis to object to an increase in machines. “Whatever we then decide won’t be seen as an ad hoc decision by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation, gambling venues or Greater Dandenong residents.” Cr Kirwan said the council should examine whether including the gambling policy in its planning scheme would give the policy greater weight.

Councillor Peter Brown said the council and its gambling policy would have little sway in the VCGLR decisions on extra poker machines. “If I could turn the clock back, I wouldn’t have poker machines in Victoria – and people know I like to have a bet. Unfortunately, the City of Greater Dandenong is one of the loss-leaders in the state. “The experience to date is the council can say what it likes, but nothing will change because the machines have been legitimately sold to the operators and venues.” In 2012-13, about $109 million was spent in the municipality – equivalent to nearly $1000 for every adult in Greater Dandenong. The spending per adult is the highest in Victoria. More than $2.4 billion have been lost to pokies in the economically-disavantaged council area since 1992 – the second highest total in Victoria.

GREATER Dandenong’s pub lic ‘cool rooms’ could automatically open at a trigger temperature in the future. A heatwave in January prompted City of Greater Dandenong to activate its heatwave plan and open designated air-conditioned spaces to the public for the first time. Springers Leisure Centre in Keysborough, Dandenong Oasis, Jan Wilson Community Centre in Noble Park North

and Paddy O’Donoghue Centre in Noble Park all welcomed hot and bothered residents and served up cold water as the temperature soared above 40 degrees on consecutive days. Mayor Jim Memeti said the spaces worked very well. “It’s mainly for people who don’t have air-conditioning,” he said. “Feedback from the community who used the cool rooms was fantastic.

“But how we can make sure that the community knows that it’s open?” Cr Memeti will now ask whether a trigger temperature to automatically open the rooms could be set and publicised. “I’m not sure what temperature we should set it,” he said. “Somewhere in the high 30s, and everyone needs to know that temperature.”

COVER STORY

NEW RELEASE, RENEWED INTEREST ONE of Casey’s most established move-up communities, Botanic Ridge estate has celebrated the new year with a brand new release of ideal family-sized blocks, giving many new home owners the opportunity to enjoy the serene and tranquil lifestyle on offer. Stage 19 features 41 blocks, ranging from 510sqm - 885sqm and starting from $221,000. With many new estates offering much smaller allotments, Botanic Ridge’s unique offering allows purchasers the convenience to build their dream home with room to move and a big backyard to boot. The new land release is ideally located directly opposite a future Neighbourhood Activity Centre zone which includes future plans for a shopping centre precinct with specialty shops, primary school, a host of sporting fields and other community facilities all earmarked within easy walking distance. Offering a relaxing and family-oriented way of life, Botanic Ridge is characterised by a number of wetlands, parklands and walking tracks which link the community with a host of nearby landmarks including the Royal Botanic Gardens, Cranbourne. The estate’s gently undulating land and larger-than-average blocks have created a semi-rural environment where children play in the parks after school and neighbours quickly become friends. Botanic Ridge’s development manager, Joe Cassera, said the new stage release had sparked renewed interest in the estate with many eager home-hunters registering their interest and already securing their dream lot in the lead-up to the launch. “Botanic Ridge has always offered large, spacious blocks which just aren’t on offer anywhere else. “This release once again offers move-up buyers an opportunity to purchase a large lot with the added convenience of being within easy walking distance to new community facilities outlined in the Botanic Ridge Precinct Structure Plan. “Our blocks in Stage 19 are significantly larger and represent better value than many of the blocks offered by other estates in the area, which is what makes Botanic Ridge so special - our estate offers a relaxing, tranquil way of life where people aren’t living on top of each other. “There’s space to grow and plenty of parks for families to enjoy on the weekends, so we are thrilled to bring our new stage to the market which offers many purchasers the opportunity to capitalise on this ideal family lifestyle,” he said. To find out more about Botanic Ridge, contact the sales office on 9785 9339 or visit the website: www.botanicridge.com.au

NEW HOMES & LAND

HOME BUILDERS ON THEIR TOES TWENTY three builders at Berwick Waters last weekend were raced off their feet as they entertained, informed and showed more than 3000 visitors to the estate around their display homes and the beautiful surroundings of this signature master-planned community by Australand and Mondous Property Australia. From Porter Davis, Simonds and Carlisle Homes to Burbank, Boutique and Henley Homes, visitors to the estate in Grices Road were delighted to have the opportunity to view some of the best home designs, all set within the verdant surrounds of Berwick Waters. Coinciding with the display village’s official opening was the completion of the one hectare Waterfront Park, a rolling space filled with lush grassy areas, an inviting picnic shelter and a substantial playground with slides, in-ground trampolines and a flying fox. Tranquillity, natural beauty and breathtaking views are only part of the story why thousands of Melburnians are expected to flock to this new waterfront haven. Set among magical watery surrounds which will total 52ha of wetlands (about 4km of water)

when fully constructed, walking and bike trails, and dotted with fitness stations, the picturesque viewing platforms over the wetlands provide for inspirational living that has elevated Casey to one of Australia’s desirable municipalities for families with lifestyle and affordability at the top of their shopping list. With land priced from $199,990 and house and land packages starting from well under $400,000, young singles through to emptynesters can now have a variety of secure living options and the opportunity of turning that dream into a reality, all within months. Last weekend’s two-day family fun event at Berwick Waters provided the ideal timing for visitors and potential buyers to take advantage of the sunshine and relaxed atmosphere and spend time with the family while also setting out on the display home trail to view the latest and newest offerings in home design and floorplans from some of Victoria’s finest builders. It also generated a handsome return for the Lioness Club of Berwick with $2250 being raised for their charitable work with a young local boy

Big move in good books NARELLE COULTER SHORTLY after the old Dandenong library in Stuart Street closes its doors for the final time on Sunday, specialist removalists will start the mammoth task of relocating nearly 1.5 kilometres of books in sequence to the city’s new library in the municipal building. As well as 58,000 books and magazines, 12,000 DVDs, Blu-ray disks and CDs will also be painstakingly packed into boxes and containers and relocated. Planning for the move has occupied library services manager Mary Rydberg and her 70 staff for much of the past six months. As she says “you don’t want to mix the collection up” or end up with a new library that doesn’t compare to the warmth, inclusiveness and longevity of the old one. The physical packing and relocation of the 70,000-item collection will be understaken by specialist removalist company Allied Pickfords. The really big job for library staff, said Ms Rydberg, will be reshelving the collection at the new site and then acquainting themselves with the layout before patrons are welcomed through the door on 17 March. The new library will occupy two floors of the municipal building, a space of almost 2000 square metres or nearly double the old library’s 1100 square metres. More than 1487 lineal metres of new shelving, manufactured in Victoria, have been installed at the new site. The ground level, off the square adjacent to the cafe, will have, in Ms Rydberg’s words, a “absolutely beautiful” children’s area, alcoves for people to read newspapers and magazines, a

teens’ room with game consoles and a high-tech discovery bar where people can “have a play” with new technology. “We see that as the busy area where there will be lots of activity.” Upstairs will be the fiction and non-fiction collections, alcoves where people can study as well as computer training rooms and spaces for community gatherings. “It will be lovely,” said Ms Rydberg. “The current library is so busy and small in size that there are no quiet areas and that’s some of the feedback we’ve had, particulalry from students trying to study. The design (of the new library) means we’ve got lots of quiet seating areas and plenty of study areas.” The new library will have radio frequency identification self-checkers so patrons can check out their own books. Space has also been allocated for a mechanical sorting machine, which will relieve staff of much of the manual work of handling returned material, freeing them up to be much more interactive with people using the library. “All libaries are moving to a more significant role in digital diversity. It’s very clear in our community that people want assistance in understanding the technology that is coming out like ipads and iphones and laptops.” Work on the design of the new library started three years ago in consultation with the municipal building project architects. “Because the staff have been so involved we’re all really excited and we realise how close it is. When we started three years ago it seemed something that was going to happen a long way in the future.” Ms Rydberg cheerfully admits her own long career in management “has

Library services manager Mary Rydberg and library services senior co-ordinator Natalie Brown. 114505 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS had nothing to do with libraries”. Responsibility for the city’s library service fell under her community care portfolio after a management restructure five years ago. The library service was a welcome addition to her responsibilities and she describes herself as “very much a reader”. “I’m a fiction reader. I read to relax and I love audio books. When you get on the treadmill or are walking nothing is better than a good audio book.”

Ms Rydberg said the library service was a huge investment for local government, but one of its most important areas of expenditure. Greater Dandenong boasts one of the highest membership rates in Victoria, around 66,000. Staff at the two branches handle more than 100,000 reference inquiries and process 1.5 million loans each year. Those numbers are only expected to climb with the new library offering longer opening hours and access to technology not dreamt of when the old

library opened its doors in 1972. For Ms Rydberg and her staff, three years of planning will come to fruition on Monday, 17 March when the public gets the chance to explore the new library for the first time. “We hope lots of people come in. We have lots of programs planned, especially children’s activities for the school holidays. “It’s been an absolute opportunity of a lifetime, being involved with creating something that is going to have to last at least another 40 years.”

Lovers of the book take a look BIBLIOPHILES of all ages joined staff at Dandenong’s Stuart Street library on Saturday afternoon to celebrate 40 years since the library was opened in February 1972. The anniversary celebration was also a chance for people to say farewell to the old library, which will close its doors for the final time on Sunday. The library is being relocated to the new municipal building on Lonsdale Street. Library services manager Mary Rydberg said staff felt it important that the milestone was marked with a community celebration. “The libary is closing but it’s also 40 years old, so we separated out the 40th birthday celebration from the closing because the library will continue into its 41st year but somewhere else,” she explained. Saturday’s festivities included children’s storytime, board games, Afghan tea and birthday cake. The Stuart Street library has been much-loved over the past four decades, however its early 1970s design was no longer adequate in an age when libraries have had to reinvent themselves and adapt to the digital world. To mark the closing of the Stuart Street site, patrons are being encouraged to record their memories of the library on special postcards. Contributions will be collated into a book and distributed at the official opening of the municipal building in April. One contribution reads: “Thankyou for all the years of being here. Enjoy your new ’home’ as much as the readers will.” The return chutes at Stuart Street will remain open until 16 March. During the two-week shutdown before the new library opens on 17 March, the council will operate a shuttle bus to the Springvale branch library. The shuttle bus will operate 10am6.30pm weekdays and 9.30am to 12 pm Saturdays. The shuttle bus timetable can be downloaded from the City of Greater Dandenong website.

Witnesses wanted on road rage stabbing

Hope to a T By CASEY NEILL A KEYSBOROUGH small business is supporting refugees through T-shirts. Savage Society will donate one artist-designed T-shirt to Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and Hotham Mission for each one sold through its Tees for Refugees online campaign. Company founder Jesse McIntosh works and volunteers in the not-for-profit sector and is passionate about equality and human rights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to raise the bar and see if we could do something different,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was looking to donate a bunch of T-shirts to a friend, who worked for a not-forprofit in Uganda.â&#x20AC;?

But Mr McIntosh was told his donation could do more harm than good - it could take work from a local business and damage the fragile economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we are looking to make a donation of 75 artistdesigned T-shirts to those who need it most, as some refugees are facing great persecution, hardship and challenges, and many are caught in the middle of some very difficult situations,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big problem, but as a business this is something we can do to make a difference.â&#x20AC;? He said the Savage Society team was excited to make a difference locally as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d noticed many Australians were disappointed in the way refugees were currently being

DJ

treated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very complex issue, but at the end of the day, we see this as an opportunity to think globally and act locally,â&#x20AC;? Mr McIntosh said. He said the project empowered refugees and enabled them to choose a unique clothing item they might not have the resources to obtain otherwise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much, it can actually be empowering to give them choice,â&#x20AC;? he said. The online campaign ends on Friday 28 February at 6pm. It will also support Savage Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth. To get involved or for more information, visit www.pozible.com/savageswithacause.

POLICE are appealing for witnesses in a recent road-rage knife attack in Dandenong after charging a 22-year-old Cranbourne man. Greater Dandenong CIU Detective Senior Constable Simon Ellis said two men were in a car on Frankston-Dandenong Road, waiting to turn into Greens Road, about 4.20pm on 5 February when they became involved in an argument with three men in a blue Toyota Camry. The attackers exited their vehicle, one brandishing a knife, and assaulted the victims, a 24-year-old and a 27-year-old from Dandenong. One suffered stab wounds to the side of his head and forearm and the other grazing and a laceration to his back. Det Sen Const Ellis said the vehicle carrying the attackers left the scene, and police later arrested and charged a Cranbourne man with intentionally causing serious injury. The accused is to appear at Dandenong Magistratesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Court on 1 July. Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 00 with any information.

Brave Dave defies the odds By CASEY NEILL

Friday 2 th Feb John Uni Dave Jacka is the Dinner Under the Stars guest speaker. “The Castle is the first place where Wallara started delivering services in 1959,” Mr Hayes-Brown said. Michael Buble-style crooner James Farrands will sing, and share how his uncle’s disability has shaped his perspective on the world. The Wallara Sing and Sign Choir, which includes Wallara service users, staff, family members and residents from aged care facility Eunice Sed-

don, will also perform. Wallara ambassadors will host every table. “They love being involved and they can’t wait,” Mr HayesBrown said. Guests can also purchase money can’t buy experiences, like a tour of Dave’s modified plane. Tickets are $300 per person. Table discounts also apply. Call Julie Cosgriff on 9792 2985 for tickets or more information.

DAVE Jacka doesn’t see why being a quadriplegic should stop him from flying a plane. Solo. Around Australia. He’ll share his story at Wallara’s Dinner Under the Stars fund-raising event on 13 March, to support the Wallara Wish Foundation. Wallara CEO Phil HayesBrown said the cash would fund one-off grants to Wallara service users for special equipment or experiences to improve their quality of life. “Everything raised goes out to service users,” he said. Last year’s event raised more than $35,000. “We’re hoping to meet that number again and maybe even beat it,” Mr Hayes-Brown said. Dave broke his fifth vertebrae in a motorbike accident four days before his 19th birthday. He has limited arm function, no finger function, can’t move any body part below his armpits and can’t regulate his body temperature. Despite this, he was in Australia’s Wheelchair Rugby Squad at the 1996 Paralympic Games and in 2006 became the first person with quadriplegia to fly a powered hang glider solo. “We’re delighted to have someone like Dave share their story,” Mr Hayes-Brown said. “We’re all about what you can do, not what you can’t do.” Guests will receive a personal tour of Wallara’s Potter Street headquarters, cocktails and canapés in the palm tree courtyard, and a gourmet meal at The Castle.

Decade-long office lease By CASEY NEILL THE State Government has signed a 10-year lease at a new Dandenong office. About 150 workers will move into the 2450 square metre space at 1-9 Dandenong Street mid-year. CBRE’s Richard Height negotiated the lease on behalf of Open Corporation Funds Management and said construction on the three-level building was due to finish in May. He said the State Government intended to start fitting out the space - 85 per cent of the building - in the next month or so, but could not confirm which department would be moving in. Mr Height said the building’s sustainability focus was a key factor behind the lease. “The Victorian Government required office accommoda-

tion that would achieve a Green Star rating of 3 to 5 once built, a NABERS rating of 4.5 stars and minimum water rating of 4 stars,” he said. “This Dandenong premises

fits the tenant’s geographical requirements, as well as its sustainability pre-requisites.” About 350 square metres on the top floor is still available for lease.

Cash boost to save energy THREE Greater Dandenong businesses will soon be saving energy, thanks to $59,760 in grants. South Eastern Metropolitan Region MP Gordon Rich-Phillips announced the cash boost earlier this month, through the State Government’s $1.7 million Smarter Resources, Smarter Business program. “Giving businesses the funding to improve materials and energy efficiency boosts their economic performance and helps companies such as these to compete in a truly sustainable way,” he said. In Dandenong, electrical ca-

ble manufacturer Tycab Australia received $25,000 to upgrade to a more energy-efficient air compressor and fermented milk manufacturer Yakult Australia will use $25,000 to install LED lighting. Polymer and rubber products manufacturer EMC Pacific in Dandenong South will spend $9760 on a variable speed drive (VSD) air compressor. Environment and Climate Change Minister Ryan Smith said the $3000 to $50000 grants would go a long way in supporting diverse sectors, including the manufacturing, retail, agriculture, tourism,

food and beverage, and aged care industries. “We are seeing just how important these grants are to small and medium-sized businesses that are competing on an international platform,” he said. “Everyone wants to do the right thing by the environment, but at times finding the upfront capital can be a barrier to environmental success.” The next round of Smarter Resources, Smarter Business Energy and Materials grants, is open until Friday 2 May.

in Dandenong will be out of the industry for five years following concerns about his conduct. Parmjit Singh agreed to cancel his Australian credit licence after Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) surveillance between 2010 and 2013. The investigation found he failed to verify documents supplied in support of about 40 loan applications to various banks. Mr Singh also agreed not to

pate in the consumer credit or financial services industries for five years. ASIC found that in preparing loan applications, Mr Singh obtained information from home loan applicants, but failed to verify payslips, bank statements and employment references in circumstances where suspicions should have been raised on the validity of the documents. ASIC was concerned Mr Singh was not a fit and proper person to engage in credit ac-

whether the loan applications contained false information about the prospective borrowers’ income and employment. “Under the credit legislation, brokers, as well as credit providers, have important responsible lending obligations,” ASIC deputy chairman Peter Kell said. “ASIC will take action where it identifies mortgage and finance brokers who knowingly or recklessly submit false loan documents.”

Rangers loose the Spirit By JARROD POTTER BENDIGO made it 10-wins-in-a-row against Dandenong, downing the Rangers 71-62 in a WNBL semi-final match dominated by the talls. The Spirit conceded a 25-30 deficit to Dandenong half-way through the second term before their charges lit it up. A back-and-forth scoreboard eventually started favouring Bendigo as Kelsey Griffin (19 points, 16 rebounds) and Gabe Richards (13 points, 11 rebounds) owned the bottom of the basket following Dandenong’s centre structure succumbing to foul trouble early. Kristi Harrower (14 points and 10 assists) lit up thes and launched the Spirit fans into rapturous applause with a long-range shot right as buzzer elapsed. Jenna O’Hea dragged the ball back down the court to launch two treys of her own, but by then the workload was too much for the Rangers to bring back. The reliance on O’Hea (16 points) hitting the threes was too great for Dandenong - as the ‘All Star Five’ guard made the only three threes of the match for the usually long-range-reliant Rangers. Brigitte Ardossi (12 points, 4 rebounds) popped up for 10 points in the first term - on sixof-six from the free-throw line but all told the Rangers struggled to find its scorers or its muchneeded three-point game. Dandenong will face Townsville Fire next Sunday afternoon at Dandenong Basketball Stadium at 3pm. It will be a repeat of last season’s preliminary final where the Fire upset the Rangers in a 78-66 thriller. Townsville pushed its way through to the preliminary final on the back of a nailbiting 78-73 win over the Melbourne Boomers with former Ranges Steph Cumming (9 points) and Rosie Fadljevic (3 rebounds) part of the success. Former Rangers’ Cumming and Fadljevic will be on the other side of the ledger in this preliminary final, having played on the Rangers roster in 2012-13.

Dandenong City steps up By JARROD POTTER

Showing off Greater Dandenong Warriors Hockey Club’s new colours, are Malavika Kattali, Brendan Ryan, Andrew Barber, Jasmine Singh and Harry Singh. 114971 Picture: JARROD POTTER

By JARROD POTTER OPPONENTS of Greater Dandenong Warriors Hockey Club now only need to fear three colours when they arrive at Bill Toon Playing Fields - black, blue and yellow. The club, founded in 2008 as a merger between Dandenong and Springvale-Noble Park Warriors Hockey Clubs, had combined its merger clubs’ colours for the last five seasons, but the current committee thought it was time to simplify the kit and make the uniforms stand out ahead of the upcoming Hockey Victoria winter season. “We changed from the fivecolour outfit - red and white in it - to being three colours with just blue, black and yellow,” Greater Dandenong Warriors president Brendan Ryan said.

“The colour was just a committee decision a few years ago that they wanted the uniform to be into three colours, as five colours does not really work.” The club hosted its Uniform Launch Day last Sunday afternoon with the juniors facing the parents in the first showcase of the new Warriors’ colours. On top of the new uniforms, the Warriors have excelled in the recruiting stakes, with the signing of club champion Lou Ciriello - father of Australian representative Chris returning to coach the senior men’s team while Geoff Hill will coach the senior women’s team. Spots are still available for the upcoming season with all inquiries to be directed to Phil D’Rozario at gdwhcselections@ hotmail.com.

DEVELOPING the next generation is the key reason for Aaron Healey joining the ranks at Dandenong City. Former Young Socceroo and Melbourne Victory assistant coach Aaron Healey has been appointed Dandenong City’s technical director for 2014 and wants to hit the ground running at the club with new programs designed to produce top-tier footballers into the future. “Having worked with the club on an intermittent basis over the last couple of years it was enticing to get back into football and hopefully start putting in some good underlying and underpinning programs for Dandenong City,” Healey said. “The programs will hopefully cultivate and develop players, not only for the senior team in the NPL, but also players that are capable of representing a league teams and the Socceroos long-term.” As the City of Casey’s only National Premier League Victoria (NPLV) team, Healey said Dandenong City wants to be the benchmark club of the region and help promote players from the surrounding areas including the Yarra Valley, eastern suburbs and further afield in the south east suburbs. “I had a little bit to do with the club previously and it’s a club that has great ambition and wants to be representative of this area,” Healey said. “There’s always been a really strong and solid junior program here and now we’re trying to reach out for any players in the City of Greater Dandenong or the City of Casey that think they have the potential to play in the top league for juniors.

Former Young Socceroo Aaron Healey has signed on with Dandenong City Soccer Club as its technical director and hopes to develop the next generation in the south-east region. 115442 Picture: JARROD POTTER “We want to be representative of this region - the south east region - be very inclusive of both males and females and put together programs for these players that fulfil their potential and love for the sport.” Healey began coaching during an illustrious playing career where he represented Australia’s Under 17 (Joeys) and Under 20 (Young Socceroos) teams, including the 1991 FIFA U17 World Cup in Italy. Healey and the club wanted to thank the City of Greater Dandenong and the City of Casey for their support of Dandenong City and hoped to further develop these ties within both local

council areas. Interested players are welcome to attend the club on training nights, with Tuesday and Thursday for Under 12-14 and Under 18 and Wednesday/Fridays for Under 15-16, starting 6.30pm at Frank Holohan Reserve, Baden Powell Drive, Endeavour Hills. Plenty of spots are still open for Under 12s (players born 2002 and 2003) as well at the club, with limited spaces available in the Under 13s and 14s.

Kickstart is reaching out By JARROD POTTER PERHAPS the next great indigenous or multicultural footballer was inspired to succeed while listening to some of the AFL’s rising stars talk at Shepley Oval on Friday night. Melbourne recruit Jay Kennedy-Harris, originally from Endeavour Hills, and former Stingrays’ Billy Hartung (Hawthorn), Nathan Wright and Tom Curren (St Kilda) were on hand to help begin the KickStart and All-Nations Cup try-outs this week. Run by AFL Victoria, the Kickstart and All Nations programs are designed to give 15-and-under footballers from indigenous and multicultural backgrounds an opportunity to fast track their football development through a highly enjoyable on and off field program. For Kennedy-Harris the KickStart program gave him his first taste of elite football as a 14-year-old and he encourages all young footballers to get involved. “It’s an awesome stepping stone and I’m glad I got to be involved in it,” Kennedy-Harris said. “It helped me get into the TAC Cup system… I came into

the system knowing what to expect and how to go about it which made my TAC Cup footy a bit easier. “You get that many positives out of it - it’s not just the footy, they build really good people and characters so you go there and it’s a lot of fun and you learn about your culture.” To be eligible for the All Nations Cup Squad, players must have been born overseas and come from a non-English speaking background. The next stage of the tryouts is a Kickstart/All Nations Cup high performance camp in April, with potential stars able to win selection for the respective teams and compete at the National Indigenous and Multicultural Carnival in Coffs Harbour from 11-17 April. Players from Beaconsfield Youth Girls Junior Football Club were also on hand to help out with the clinic including recently retired Youth Girls champion and current Melbourne Football Club Women’s footballer Ellie Blackburn. The Koorie Auskick program also kicked off in Dandenong with more information available by contacting Peter Dye on 9791 8656 or peter. dye@aflvic.com.au.

Alisdair... you can call me Al By JASON ADAMS

1118617-CB7-14

VETERAN trainer Alisdair Armstrong is in line to claim one of the biggest victories of his career following his greyhound Al Moran’s win at Sandown Park on Thursday night. Beginning well from box five, Al Moran led the field first time past the post before opening a four length break down the back straight. He maintained that advantage to the line to claim the victory in 29.86 seconds. It was Al Moran’s 20th career win and fourth since joining Armstrong’s kennel. “He’s a good beginner and has been pinging out of the boxes lately, however I thought he might of found it a bit tricky to get across to the rail tonight,” said Armstrong. Al Moran is the only race dog in Armstrong’s kennel. He

was purchased by Armstrong and a close friend in early December from respected Junction Village trainer Russell McCrae. “I was keen to buy a racing greyhound since I already have five young pups in my kennel that are nearly ready to be broken in.” Armstrong is a true veteran of the sport, having being involved for 42 years after receiving his trainer’s license in 1972. A keen punter, Armstrong was thrust in to the training side of the caper by his brotherin-law. “I was working at Kodak at the time and used to enjoy a bet on the greyhounds. My brother-in-law was travelling to England and left me with a pup, unfortunately it wasn’t very fast on the track.” A Group race win is something that has evaded the 69-year-old throughout his

Alisdair Armstrong is onto a winner with his greyhound Al Picture: SUPPLIED Moran. 115448 career, Armstrong’s highlight being a chaser named Dancing Lights which made a Group 2 Warrnambool Cup final. “Dancing Lights nearly lead every race I entered her in. She was also the first female grey-

hound to break 24 seconds at Bendigo and she achieved that five times.” Al Moran lines up in box three in Thursday night’s Grade 5 final which carries a $12,000 first prize.

THE never say die Dandenong (297) cut down Northcote (120 and 151) in an outright victory to keep its slender final’s hopes alive. From 4/82 last weekend at stumps, Northcote capitulated spectacularly as Justin Butterfield (3/30), Dan Doran (2/22), James Nanopoulos (2/23) and James Wilcock (2/31) ran through the batting as if it was a net session. The Northcote resistance barely lasted 40 overs and left the home side having to bat again to avoid outright embarrassment. Marcus Stoinis, returning to Victorian duty, was not available to help the top

order hold off Wilcock (3/30) and Nanopoulos (4/41) as it collapsed for a meagre 151. Doran (2/19) took the key wicket of Ben Peake (40) to end all hopes of Northcote batting out for a first innings loss alone. Dandenong hosts Camberwell Magpies at Shepley Oval in the final match of the Victorian Premier Cricket home and away season. The winner of Dandenong versus Camberwell will need results to fall its way with Fitzroy-Doncaster losing to Melbourne and Prahran failing against Northcote. Dandenong will also need to drastically improve its percentage as well to leapfrog Prahran into the final topeight spot.

Bounty of five-wicket hauls

VSDCA East/West 1st XI round 12 (week one)

By JARROD POTTER

Northern stampede

FIVE-WICKET hauls summed up the second last week of DDCA action as Steve Spoljaric, Luke Fletcher and Joseph Hawke ran through their respective opponents.

BUCKLEY RIDGES v DANDENONG WEST BUCKLEY Ridges (8/162) ended the slim chances of Dandenong West (104) with Luke Fletcher (6/54) terrorising the Bulls at Park Oval. The horrifying 3/0 start for Dandenong West wasn’t much bettered as Fletcher and Jeremy Kuru (2/34) proved toxic to the Bulls’ batting. A last ditch effort from lower order batsmen Greg Siwes (39) and Andrew Harry (20) pushed the visitors to triple figures before succumbing to the Ridges’ attack. Fletcher (33) was the best with the bat as everyone made starts for the Ridges but failed to kick on. Shaun Weir (3/42) and Harry (3/36) were the best of the Bulls’ contingent with ball in hand, rather than ball zooming past their faces. Expect a quick-fire slog from Buckley Ridges’ remaining batsmen before attempting to take the outright victory and potentially boost itself to top spot in the DDCA.

BERWICK v NORTH DANDENONG BERWICK (5/156dec) snuffed out

the extremely remote North Dandenong (104 and 0/14) chances of making the finals with Nirmal Wickramaratne (7/19) going on a rampage. The ‘pink shirt’, raising awareness and funds for the McGrath Foundation, suited Wickramaratne as he destroyed any Northerner that stepped onto Arch Brown Reserve. North Dandenong lost its first five wickets for less than 50 as Wickramaratne hurled them from the crease rapidly. Edges flew thick and fast to Berwick keeper Col Tucker finished with six catches for the day. Ryan Crawford (2/33) and some seam-up opening bowling from Jarrod Goodes (1/26) was enough to capture the remaining three North Dandenong wickets on the cheap. Berwick’s Ryan Williamson (57) was sent out with orders to get quick runs and fulfilled his captain’s request with his first Turf 1 half century in tandem with Thilan Samaraweera (32 not out) and Ryan Crawford (34 not out). Berwick added 52 for North Dandenong to chase and the visitors kept all 10 wickets at stumps.

SPRINGVALE SOUTH v COOMOORA COOMOORA(5/80) refused to concede in its final match of the season, making top seed Springvale South (142) look sluggish with the bat.

Nathan King (52) was the only fighting Blood as the rest of Springvale South fell away in the face of a Joseph Hawke (5/48) rampage. Hawke claimed his best bowling figures as the Kangaroos hopped all over the Bloods, causing a rare collapse. The reply was spearheaded by Rahoul Pankhania (53) before a collapse of their own left the Kangaroos in a coin flip situation heading into day two five wickets in hand, 63 runs to chase. Springvale South needs the five wickets to have any chance of hosting a home semi-final while Coomoora would love to finish a lowly year on a high note.

LYNDALE v MORDIALLOC THE equation remains simple - Mordialloc (199) needs to bowl Lyndale for less than 200 to squeak past a likely losing Heinz Southern Districts while Lyndale needs a miracle outright win. Mordialloc failed to ground itself at the crease with Leon Kennedy (39), Michael Campbell (34) and Chathura Athukorala (34) the best performers for the Bloodhounds. Lance Bence (28 not out) had some happy hitting from number 11, including three fours and a six. Expect hit-in or hit-out cricket from Lyndale as it chases a final’s spot in his first

year back in Turf 1.

HEINZ SOUTHERN DIST v PARKFIELD HEINZ Southern Districts (139) will need to bowl its best innings of cricket this season to remain in the finals hunt, with Parkfield (0/17) running through the Cobras easily. Steve Spoljaric (6/54) made his presence felt with the ball - rattling off a superhuman 33.5 overs from a 70.5 over innings with 14 maidens. It continued Spoljaric’s one-a-year six-wicket haul trend and his second in two years against the Cobras. Heinz couldn’t keep its men at the crease with only Matt Cox (49) showing any tangible resistance to Spoljaric and the Bears. Shane Bell (1/38) kept things tidy down the other end for Parkfield with 10 maidens from his 25 overs. Heinz will barrack hard for Lyndale to take the win against Mordialloc, but fall short of a miraculous outright victory to maintain its finals place.

COMING EVENTS THE DDCA will host the annual Alan Wookey Medal night at The Dandenong Club on Monday 3 March from 7pm. Extra tickets for clubs are available from the association by contacting Neil Evans on 0414 997 292.

WHAT’S ON this week

By JARROD POTTER PLAYING less like the VSDCA wooden spooners and more like premiership aspirants, Melton (236) put the sword to Noble Park’s bowling to set up a significant chase this weekend. The Bulls made early inroads via opening quick trio Johan Vorster (3/41), Rizan Mawzoon (1/32) and Anthony Salomon (1/48) before Melton fought back. A 133-run fifth wicket stand between Anthony Gale (75) and captain Nathan Geisler (76) turned the match on its head as the Bulls lost all initiative. The partnership was ruptured by Vorster, finding the edge of Gale to give Dirk Vandergert his third catch of the afternoon. Geisler was next to fall at 6/210 having guided his side out of crisis. Nathan Allen (22 not out) held on as tail-end wickets started to tumble, with Mevan Fernando (4/39) spinning his way through the tail after claiming the must-have scalp of Geisler. A win would give Noble Park much needed breathing room from the chasing pack in the VSDCA finals equation before its final match of the home and away season hosting Williamstown.

MOTORING Circle of dealer confidence MERCEDES-BENZ Berwick, dealer principal and equity partner Craig P. Howard has had a long passion for the brand – something that has helped him and his team achieve amazing results in the two years since he took the helm at the prestige dealership. The team’s hard work and passion paid off this month with the dealership’s outstanding results at the Mercedes-Benz Cars, and Mercedes-Benz Vans, Dealer of the Year Awards held at the National Gallery of Victoria. Craig and his team took out the top awards of the event being named both the Metropolitan Dealer of the Year for 2013, and Metropolitan Vans Dealer of the Year for 2013. “Congratulations must go to each and every staff member at MercedesBenz Berwick, without their commitment and team efforts last year these awards would not have been possible,” Craig said. “We also wish to take this opportunity to extend a sincere thank you to our wonderful customers. Their loyalty and support in 2013 contributed to achieving these prestigious awards.” It was a big event for the Berwick team with many staff members being honoured and nominated. “Mercedes-Benz Berwick wishes to congratulate Tim Harty, who won PreOwned Sales Manager of the Year,” he said. “Tim began his employment at Mercedes-Benz Berwick in 2012 and his department has gone from strength to strength.”

The prestige brand has been part of Craig’s family for most of his life with his father Martin working for Mercedes-Benz for almost 30 years before retiring. Craig himself has also brought a

wealth of knowledge to Berwick with more than 20 years of prestige automotive industry experience in Management, Finance, Marketing and Business Development. From competing in Mercedes-Benz AMG Cycling events to sponsoring numerous charities such as Brainwave, Royal Children’s Hospital, Local Rotary and Sporting Clubs, Craig is determined to ensure that Mercedes-Benz Berwick always remains a strong force within the community.

Italian designers have done an excellent job of making the Fiat Panda stand out from the small car crowd. Below: Interior space is excellent for a car of this diminutive size.

G4810184AB-dp16Jan

ITALIAN style makes the Fiat Panda stand out from the many conservative vehicles that are competing in the small car market in Australia. The Panda could be described as a Fiat 500 ‘Cinquecento’ with a different body and the added convenience of back doors. Unlike the 500 which is unashamedly retro, the Panda is ultra modern in its funky shape. Panda’s stylists came up with a fascinating theme based around what they call a Squircle, that is squares rounded off by circular corners. The Fiat squircle is used on the exterior of the Panda to give what could have been a boxy vehicle a cute look. But it’s the numerous areas inside – the instrument surrounds, steering wheel centre, door handles, speaker housing, drink holders, and more try to count them for yourself – that really takes the design out of the ordinary. The Panda comes in Fiat’s usual model range – base Pop, midrange Easy and topline Lounge. Fiat Australia is asking only $16,500, driveaway for the Pop with a manual gearbox. None of the others are driveaway so their prices increase markedly. Then there’s an additional version called the Panda Trekking. It has the appearance of a small SUV – big roof racks, bold door cladding, and raised ride height. Even the cheapest model Panda Pop gets the sophisticated Blue&Me system developed by Microsoft and Fiat that uses voice activation. Handling is safe and secure, with these little cars able to hold onto the road at speeds much higher than would be expected for what is, after all, a small family car.
