Fashion statement MINARET College has joined a world-wide movement to help people better understand the hijab. Students including Afsoon, Maliha, Fatima and Sahar took part in a World Hijab Day event at the Keysborough campus on 13 March demonstrate a stylish way to wear the hijab.They invited peers from non-Islamic schools to attend and look at why women chose to wear the head covering. A blogger shared her tips on how to dress modestly with a hijab in a fashionable way, and a doctor spoke about her experiences of wearing a hijab in a professional field. The first annual World Hijab Day was held on 1 February last year, thanks to New York resident Nazma Khan who encountered discrimination when she moved to the Bronx from Bangladesh at age 11. 115414 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS

It’s race hate, mate LOCAL African groups are worried that the Federal Government’s proposed changes to the Racial Discrimination Act may spur on hatreds laid bare in 2007. Saturnino Onyala, secretary-general of the Dandenong-based Sudanese Community Association of Australia, said the draft changes released last week were an invitation to racism that could stir “bad feelings” between community groups. He fears it could revive the persecutory effect felt by Greater Dandenong’s Sudanese community in 2007 when

then-Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews said Sudanese people weren’t integrating. At the time, members of the Sudanese Australian community blamed Mr Andrews’s words for creating a “climate” for violent attacks against its young people. Jose Gonsalves, project manager of Noble Park-based African Communities Foundation Australia, writes in his Community Voice in today’s Journal that Mr Andrews’s comments were like an “endorsement to attacks against us at the time”. He said Federal Attorney-General George Brandis’s view last week that

“people have the right to be bigots” has a “massive impact”. “Greater Dandenong is very suggestive to hate speech debates like this because of its diversity and sensitive nature to bigotry and race offensive language.” A spokesman for Mr Brandis did not respond to the the comments by the Journal’s deadline. However, a press release on the Attorney-General’s website states that the reforms to the Racial Discrimination Act will strengthen protections against racism while at the same time removing provisions which unreasonably limit freedom of speech. Race Discrimination Commissioner

Dr Tim Soutphommasane said he had “very serious concerns” with “seriously weakening protections against racial vilification”. He said proposed exemptions were broad, “obliterating” the line between free speech and hate speech. In other words, promoting “freedom without responsibility”. “The signals we send are important for racial harmony,” he said. “We expect leaders to give signals that bigotry is unacceptable in a liberal democracy.” Jane Dixon SC, president of Liberty Victoria, said the draft amendments were “a massive overreach”.

“We value free speech. The purpose of the changes is strengthening free speech but it hasn’t got the balance right in that regard. “It just makes it easier for people to make humiliating and denigrating statements based on racial or religious backgrounds. State Multicultural Affairs Minister Matthew Guy said he was concerned by the changes and would make a submission based on the state government being “unambiguously opposed to any form of discrimination based on an individual’s race, faith, gender, or for any other reason”.

Jail after cell attack He said at the time Warry, who was on methadone treatment, was “off the planet” on a mix of pharmaceutical drugs Xanax and benzodiazepine. The court was told the constable’s blood test results would be known in three months. Magistrate Jack Vandersteen said the assault would “affect that police officer’s life on so many levels”. “Spitting in one’s face is unacceptable. There’s orifices there in which saliva can enter. That’s aside from the biting,” he said. According to a police summary, Warry became “extremely aggressive” when told she was going to be moved to a holding cell. While restrained, Warry bit the con-

By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS A POLICE officer has an anxious threemonth wait after being spat in the face and bitten on the arm by an accused shoplifter in Dandenong police station. The constable had arrested and interviewed Anna Louise Warry, 27, of Dandenong, after she allegedly stole shoes from a Dandenong Plaza store on 21 March. Warry’s lawyer told Dandenong Magistrates’ Court last Monday that Warry had apologised to police for her behaviour, assuring them she didn’t carry transmissible diseases such as HIV or hepatitis-C. “She said there’s just no excuses,” the lawyer said. “It doesn’t seem to be a feature of her (past) offending behaviour.”

stable on the right forearm for several seconds, drawing blood and causing red marks and swelling on the arm, police allege. As she was led to the custody area, Warry allegedly turned and spat in the constable’s face. She also lunged at and tried to spit on a sergeant while in the holding cell. Warry had been on bail for a list of theft and shoplifting offences since 2009 including the theft of more than $23,000 of jewellery from her Waverley Gardens employer, a 52-inch TV from aN electric goods shop, a worker’s $800 mobile phone from a staff room, and more than $1000 of cosmetics and earrings.

Solicit sting charges

Warry’s lawyer said she was regarded as “very personable” at her retail job. “I take it she was reasonably effective. She realises she will never be able to work in retail again, which was something she enjoyed.” He said Warry’s offending seemed to be linked to spikes of benzodiazepine use - usually triggered by continued family rejection. She also required treatment for a borderline personality disorder, her lawyer said. Warry was sentenced to 30 days’ jail and given a community corrections order for unlawful assault, theft and weapons offences.

Chess tournament is a better move A SPRINGVALE Chinese chess group brings together lovers of the game and tackles problem gambling. Councillor Sean O’Reilly said Xiangqi players from around Australia attended the recent Australian Friendship Chess Association annual tournament in Springvale South. Master Ngoc Thach Nguyen was the tournament’s champion. Pham Nguyen Bao was runner-up, Master Yan Cai finished in third place and Khanh Nguyen was fourth. Cr O’Reilly said the non-profit organisation helped the community on a number of fronts. Players socialise post-game and

the strategy involved assists with mental strength. “One reason it was set up was to attract people who might become afflicted with problem gambling,” he said. “It’s a game where no money changes hands.” Xiangqi, or Chinese chess, is a strategy board game for two players in the same family as traditional chess. Australia Friendship Chess Association is at 575a Springvale Road, Springvale South, and welcomes new players. Visit www.australiafriendshipchess.org for more information.

ELEVEN people will face prostitution charges following another sting in the Dandenong CBD. Police ran the operation targeting clients and street sex workers on 19 March after local residents and businesses raised concerns. Acting Sergeant Leigh Mackey said officers were proactively patrolling problem areas in central Dandenong. “All persons charged can expect a summons to be personally delivered to their home address,” he said. “The police strongly discourage the solicitation of prostitutes and further operations to reduce this activity are expected to be undertaken in the future.” Last month the Journal reported that eight gutter crawlers would have to cough up $4000 in fines after they were arrested for soliciting police officers who were posing as prostitutes. Police wore recording equipment to collect evidence during sting operations on Scott Street on 12 September and 14 November. The operations followed a Star News Group report in February last year that a 70-year-old woman was propositioned outside her Scott Street home and a story in July that gutter crawlers propositioned a 19-year-old girl as she waited for a bus in Scott Street. –Casey Neill

Popular new learning is in your neighbourhood! DANDENONG Neighbourhood House has seen a 75 per cent increase in enrolments and programs in the past 18 months. This is a wonderful effort by the committed staff and tutors who deliver vital programs to the diverse ethnic communities within the city. Manager Robyn Coslovich said training hours have been quadrupled. In 2012 Dandenong Neighbourhood house delivered 3000 training hours. By the end of term one this year, 12,570 will have been delivered. I was impressed to hear from Robyn that in 2014 Dandenong Neighbourhood House is using 11 venues to meet demand including Wallara, Dandenong Primary School, Dandenong West Primary School, the Salvation Army, Avo-

We used to run this column in the days when legendary crime reporter Hugh Buggy was on our staff at Number 1 Scott Street. ‘Sir Hugh’, as we fondly knew him, often came to the home of my first husband, Ron Stork, and I always cooked him lamb and roast vegetables which he enjoyed. He lived alone with his treasured cat and his typewriter in an inner Melbourne suburb and often spoke of the Pyjama Girl murder at Albury, which he had reported on for a Melbourne newspaper. Hugh and I had great fun filling the column with snippets from around the district so it’s great to hear that None of Our Business But... is one of the most widely read sections of the Journal since its relaunch in September.

LOOKING BACK 100 years ago 26 March 1914 Illumination of Dandenong THE illumination of the town of Dandenong by electric light, although a vast improvement on the obsolete gas system, is not yet satisfactory. A paltry forty lights, good enough perhaps 20 years ago, are totally inadequate, and the Council will need to make provision for at least 50 lights. 50 years ago 25 March 1964 Dandenong High School enrolment falls to 1100 ALTHOUGH Dandenong High School’s enrolment for 1964 has fallen to approximately 1100 pupils, the number studying Matriculation has been doubled to 120 pupils this year. An impressive ceremony organised

by the Dandenong Ministers’ Fraternal, marked the opening of religious instruction for the year. The ceremony was conducted in the Dandenong Town Hall where the service was led by the Rev Yule who was assisted by Senior Prefects, Ute Martini and Graeme Cheesman, who read the lessons. Mr J Menadue, the school’s music master with Mrs Cowen at the piano conducted the school in the singing of hymns. Following the religious service the full school witnessed the colourful ceremony of school officials for the coming year. For the first time the Mayor of Dandenong (Cr C Downard) presented the badges of office to the incoming officials while the Senior Mistress (Miss Houston) presented their banners.

The Headmaster stressed the importance of the work undertaken by the student school officials and the essential roles they play in the smooth running of the school.

Guards tied By CAM LUCADOU-WELLS A FAIR Work Commissioner has criticised Monash Health for “ambiguous” security policies that create a “significant conflict” for security officers dealing with violent visitors at its hospitals. However, in an unfair dismissal decision this month, Commissioner John Ryan upheld Monash Health’s sacking of a security guard who injured a patient in Dandenong Hospital’s emergency department. The patient, who was sitting on a trolley at the time, had hit a clinician with a “glancing blow” to the mouth. In an ensuing struggle with the guard, the patient was pulled off the trolley, falling face-first and sustaining a broken jaw and cut chin.

The commissioner found the guard used “excessive and unnecessary” force, though he thought the guard did not intend to injure the patient nor intended to pull her off the trolley. Monash Health had contended the guard was not following hospital policy because he could only restrain a patient when instructed to do so by a clinician. However, under questioning, the hospital’s security services group manager conceded it was proper for the guard to prevent the patient striking the clinician. “At its simplest, the policies are misleading,” Commissioner Ryan stated. “At its worst the policies create a significant conflict for a security officer.” Health Services Union officials, representing the guard, were bemused by the deci-

sion and were considering legal options. Last year, after the guard’s dismissal, his colleagues told the Journal they were being denied the use of reasonable force to protect staff from violent visitors. Guards past and present said they had regularly faced drugfuelled or mentally ill visitors armed with bladed weapons such as machetes, but had been forbidden to carry handcuffs, batons or capsicum foam. One guard estimated they seized a knife a week but were forbidden by managers to apply so much as an armlock. ‘‘We’re not allowed to do our job,’’ he said. A Monash Health spokesman said security officers at Dandenong Hospital do an “excellent job” in a “complex and dynamic clinical environment”.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Poor parking prevails WE KEEP talking about law and order, road safety, security and prevention of accidents. We pretend to be more civilised than others, more learned or better educated yet our reprehensible behaviour and actions at the Dandenong Railway Station car park, near the bottle shop, speak louder than our words. Some irresponsible and selfish owners of vehicles have turned that car park into a labyrinth. And driving one’s car in that area has become very difficult and extremely dangerous between 7am and 6pm almost every day. The other day I even saw two cars that had been parked across the bays reserved for disabled people, thus blocking the access. One wonders whether these people have any idea about discipline and consideration for others. How do they raise their own children? What kind of role model can they be for our youths? What baffles some observers, however, is the incapacity of the authorities to take actions against the offenders. Why can’t the vehicles of all recalcitrants be towed away? Desperate ills call for desperate remedies. It’s a shame if law and order, discipline and common sense cannot prevail. Eliézer Francois, Endeavour Hills.

Crossing consequence WE DO not agree it is an accident danger area (Speed Appeal, Journal, 24 March). You see, when one wants to cross the highway there are pedestrian traffic lights on the James Street intersection where one can safely cross. Reducing the speed limit on a major highway will not solve any problems; we believe it will make it worse. If you take away the responsibility for a person’s actions, that person will simply

never grow up to be a responsible adult. The article indicates the community wants the 60km/h speed zone extended. Really? I don’t think that is the reality. Whatever happened to teachers monitoring the exit from the school? Whatever happened to measuring out discipline to those students who ignore the warnings and refuse to use the highway pedestrian overpass or abide by signals at the pedestrian crossing at James Street /Princes Highway corner? When we grew up we were told rights were what you earned by being responsible. It’s time to get back to basics – teach our children to respect others, respect the law, take responsibility for their own actions and breed into them common sense and accountability. Our government is also responsible in that they have taken a lot of the natural disciplines out of the hands of parents and teachers. We never got the strap or anything like that, but those we know who did said it taught them something and they appreciate that no-one gave up on them. But today everyone seems to be throwing their hands up in the air and stepping back, rather than doing what is right. Tiddo and Rijna Huisman, Dandenong. Editor’s note: The Journal acknowledges that the views expressed in this letter may be controversial dealing as they do with an issue which arose after the tragic death of a Dandenong High School student last year. The Journal does not endorse the opinons of the correspondents but does respect the right of all citizens to have their say within the letters to the editor forum.

USUALLY police are out taking criminals off the streets, but in Endeavour Hills one inquisitive man came knocking at their door. Police executing a search warrant in Arthur Phillip Drive arrested and charged the home’s occupant, plus another man who’s left them dumbfounded. He walked past three police cars to the front door to ask officers what was happening. Suspicious of his behaviour, they searched the man and found him in possession of drugs, believed to be methamphetamine, and stolen goods. THE council’s engineering services director Bruce Rendall left last Monday’s council meeting to squeals of delight from children rolling down a grassy hill in the new civic square. “That’s what it’s all about,” he said, beaming.

When asked what the point of order was, he explained: “I’ve made a mistake. I meant to object to a later item.” Cr Sean O’Reilly was also confused, asking “isn’t this 2.4.3?” Whoops! The gremlins snuck into the Journal’s Medically Speaking feature and we inadvertently referred to Valley Private Hospital’s director of cardiology Dr Jodie Ann Senior as a surgeon rather than a physician.

Saba Karim, 27, studied filmmaking at university and had been working in advertising when “one day something hit me”. “I wanted to put my talent to good use, not just make money off it,” he said. “I want to give back to the community and help people along the way.” So he’s creating a video series called Realize, filming motivational people from his own backyard and as far afield as Dubai. “Whether it’s a story of success or struggle, the videos are aimed to encourage viewers to make a change in their

life by being more appreciate, aware of others around them or simply wanting to be a better person,” he said. “I set up a meeting generally where they’re in the place that they’re most often working in or operating from.” Mr Karim has just finished his seventh piece which is about a former drug dealer who turned his life around and now owns a fitness gym and runs a youth coaching program. “I just hope each episode motivates an individual,” he said. “I just want somebody to get something out of it. “There is no commercial gain to me or anyone else making these videos.” The videos already have a global reach, with viewers

from Singapore leaving comments. “These are just everyday people,” Mr Karim said. “My idea is not to highlight celebrities but everyday Australian heroes or people who are making a difference to the world.” He hopes to create one film a week to keep the momentum going, and is seeking advertising, sponsorship or a grant to fund the project. “I wish I’d started earlier. There are so many people that are doing such amazing things,” he said. “I’m just trying to catch up on it. “I hope lots of people hear it from across the world.” Visit www.realize.org.au to view the videos.

DOVETON Medical Clinic has overhauled its records system after a patient died from conflicting medications. Dandenong woman Margareta Snopek, 67, died at Dandenong Hospital in March 2008 from lithium toxicity and a chest infection. Coroner Heather Spooner last July held an inquest into her death after her family expressed concerns about her medical management. GP Doctor Anu Achar prescribed Mrs Snopek Coversyl for high blood pressure at Doveton Medical Clinic two months before her death.

Mrs Snopek had been taking lithium for many years for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. The Coroner heard that lithium was excreted almost entirely by the kidneys, and that Coversyl worked in the kidneys to reduce high blood pressure. This can stop the kidneys from effectively excreting lithium and cause lithium toxicity. Mrs Snopek was admitted to Dandenong Hospital on 9 March following several falls, and blood tests revealed a lithium level double the normal range. She died 10 days later. Bernadette Snopek told the inquest that Dr Achar did not

warn her mother about the potential medication clash. Dr Achar said the clinic’s computer system “did not give a warning in relation to the interaction because lithium was not in the patient’s list of medications in the computer file”. Releasing her finding on 5 February, Ms Spooner said the clinic should have ensured the appropriate lithium monitoring and testing occurred, and utilised the computer system. She recommended the clinic undertake regular audits to ensure each patient had a legible individual health record, and record all allergies and medications electronically.

Left speechless by new centre By CASEY NEILL A PACKED gallery witnessed the first official meeting in the new City of Greater Dandenong council chambers last Monday and plenty of teething problems with the room’s new technology. Councillors and officers were left voiceless as microphones dropped out during proceedings but a handheld microphone made its way around the desk until the state-of-the-art system found its feet. It was a minor hiccup that failed to dampen the occasion a week after the council moved into the $65 million civic centre. Past City of Springvale, City of Dandenong and City of Greater Dandenong councillors were among the gallery and Mayor Jim Memeti applauded their contribution to the city’s development. “I am so proud of this wonderful new civic centre site,” he said. Cr Memeti invited the public to the precinct’s official opening at 2pm on Saturday 12 April. “We would love to see you all there,” he said. “You’ll be in for a big surprise.” Cr Peter Brown dubbed the expansive courtyard with big screen “Bennie’s back yard” with tongue firmly in cheek, but was brimming with pride at the landmark the council had

He said its excellent facilities, including “not so much a library but a learning centre”, would be an enduring legacy. “And the people who’ll see the greatest benefit of our learning centre will be the people who have the least, not the most,” he said. Cr John Kelly said staff brought together from the former Springvale and Dandenong council offices could now communicate face to face. “The one thing that’s stood out for me are the smiles on the staff’s faces,” he said.

“It’s like they all started a new job but just happened to know everyone.” At the meeting, councillors agreed to the first of eight retail leases for the new centre. Café/restaurant Melissa Cakes will move in and open 7am to 11pm every day and has a five-year lease with the option of two five-year extensions. The business, which has four other locations throughout Melbourne, will pay $63,000 a year plus GST to rent the space.

Beware impacts of bigots COMMUNITY

VOICE

JOSE GONSALVES

AFRICAN COMMUNITIES FOUNDATION AUSTRALIA

WHEN the federal Attorney-General George Brandis says: “People have the right to be bigots, you know” - I didn’t see that coming. It has a massive impact especially coming from a person in a position of power. An ordinary citizen can think ‘what can stop them from doing the same’. In 2007, Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews said the African migrant intake would be cut because Sudanese people weren’t integrating.

That played as an endorsement to attacks against us at the time. The general sentiment was that Australia prides itself as treating people equally but, all these statements, specially coming from high profile politicians, can be interpreted and perceived as blunt reinforcement of old prejudice where its believed that some people are more equal than others. It touched a raw nerve. We come here hoping to start afresh, start a new life. People are trying their best to integrate. One day, while doing our outreach program, I asked a very active young man why he drinks too much. He said to me: “You have to remember I have to assimilate with my peers. “I have to drink to be accepted in the group, and drinking seems to be part of what young Aussies do,” he says.

He was embracing a cultural value, but by doing so, he was also turning into an alcohol dependant. I told him that he should be wise enough to embrace only the values that would enrich him as an individual and as a valued member of a community. You have to choose the values that you should embrace. On the other hand, men in some cultures behave in a certain way, which isn’t in line with Western, or even some African values, that the woman and the man have the same rights. That attitude should be dropped towards our wives and children. We should be brave enough to challenge cultural values and prejudice that goes against universal human rights. As migrants, we should also be brave enough

Afghan flavour’s freshness wows EAT LOCAL, DINE GLOBAL By CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS RESTAURANT owner Baryalai Rahimi has two rules for cooking: simplicity and freshness. For this reason, he forgoes the temptation of drowning his signature Afghan-style mantu dumplings in spices or fat. He likes using fresh ginger, tomato, celery, parsley or onions, but not too many dried herbs and spices that are “too heavy” for the body. “It gives a good tastier flavour to cooking which is fresher and healthier for you,” he said. Rahimi is often asked for the recipe to these light dumplings - steam-cooked orbs of mince, simply dressed with gravy, lentils, yoghurt and mint. It is one that won over food critic and Masterchef judge Matt Preston at the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, as well as wowing diners at the Afghan Rahimi Restaurant in Walker Street, Dandenong. Rahimi started cooking for crowds when volunteering as a chef for weddings and funerals within Melbourne’s Afghan community.

Afghan Rahimi chef Hayat and Baryalai Rahimi. But the truth was that cooking “was in my blood”, he says. When Rahimi first started up in Thomas Street 14 years ago, he was told he was making a mistake. His restaurant was one of about eight shops in the street, a dead part of town at the time. At the same time, he worked two other jobs, as a migrant resource worker during days and a cabbie on Friday nights to support his family. High standards meant his business had to succeed, he says. “That’s why after nine months, the restaurant stood on its own two feet.” The business is in its fourth incarnation: its first two sites have been demolished as part of Revitalising Central Dandenong works, and the third site was acquired by one of his staff. Rahimi moved his eatery into a former wedding reception venue last year. It is spacious, opulently decorated and strategically placed within sight of the recently-opened government services building and civic centre. This month’s influx of council workers at the nearby civic centre has revitalised his restaurant’s lunch time trade, he says. It coincides with his $20, five-course lunch special of skewered chicken, Afghan rice, meatballs, eggplant and mantu dumplings with salad and traditional bread.

to protect those good values and to drop those bad ones. The Greater Dandenong community is more vulnerable during debates like this because of its diversity and sensitivity to bigotry and racially offensive language. Just recently a report was made public about racial profiling by police. It was so encouraging to see police taking a very humble position that errors were made. We saw that as a beginning of a new dialogue. We were prepared to move forward to change attitudes in the Victoria Police force and attitudes in the community towards police and the justice system. And then the Federal Government sends in this bomb, that sets us back again. I hope this is not a prelude of what is yet to come.

It’s clean and simple SIMPLE choices in everyday life can help to keep the environment clean and green. This was the message from Sunday’s Sustainability Festival at Dandenong Market, which was held by the City of Greater Dandenong. The free event celebrated environmental sustainability through activities, games, demonstrations and entertainment. Among the activities, attendees learnt new ways of growing, preparing and cooking food, tried their hand at gardening, met live animals, and pedalled to produce their own smoothies and music. The council had sustainability experts and environmental and planning officers on hand to answer questions. Journal photographer ROB CAREW captured all the family fun.

CITY of Greater Dandenong council has backed Mayor Jim Memeti’s motion to pressure the state government to close Lyndhurst toxic waste dump at the “earliest possible date”. The council will call on the government to develop an alternative strategy to using the site because of reduced demand. Demand had dropped due to “high technology soil treatment facilities” and landfill levies leading to waste being redirected from landfills, according to Cr Memeti’s motion. The council will also seek the positions of major parties and Carrum electorate candidates ahead of the state election. “All we want to know as a community is where they stand,” Cr Memeti told Monday’s council meeting. Last month, Isaacs MP Mark Dreyfus called for the tip’s closure after a fire sparked warnings for residents in surrounding suburbs to stay indoors. The state ALP and Liberal-National Coalition parties have supported the toxic waste dump. Labor allowed grades B and C toxic waste to be dumped there when in government in 2007; the Liberals added grade A hazardous soils in the mix in 2011. An ALP Opposition spokesman last month said: “Denis Napthine has failed to outline his plans for Taylors Road Landfill or put in place emergency management plans to ensure nearby residents and businesses are protected from future events similar to those that occurred last Sunday. A spokeswoman for Environment Minister Ryan Smith last month did not respond to questions about the landfill’s future.

It’s a nice break from cooking every night and they have a large choice of meals… everyone has something they don’t like, so it is nice to have a good range to choose from.” “They have a Summer menu, Winter menu, Autumn menu, Spring menu and a Christmas menu as well, so it is very easy”.

NOBLE PARK

This block size of 650 square metres has permits for seven dwellings. The proposed approved twobedroom units are split over two floors and they all include a parking spot plus storage compartment. The floor plans are cleverly designed to maximise light and they’re well spaced out with a touch of open plan living. Noble Park Central, the train station and all of the area’s best eateries are just a few minutes away. Combining these two assets, plus the addition of quality homes to be built, means the new owners can enjoy the rewards when they decide to sell the homes individually. Currently on the block is a three-bedroom home which has a tenant so the property is already making money.

A SPRINGVALE apprentice chef has triumphed in the kitchen and the classroom. Hoang Le won the Outstanding Apprentice Student award at the Holmesglen annual awards dinner on 21 March. A $3000 cash prize recognised his hard work last year while studying a certificate III in hospitality (commercial cookery). “I was pretty shocked,” he said. “When I actually went up there, you’re supposed to have prepared a speech and I had nothing planned. “I was just standing up there with a big smile on my face.” The 25-year-old said he was up against tough competition. “I want to thank my teachers for putting their time and effort into everything,” he said. “I wouldn’t be where I am without Holmesglen. “They’ve shaped my career.” Mr Le also captained the successful Holmesglen team in the VIC-TAFE Cookery Challenge for two years running and took out last year’s Holmesglen Iron Apprentice Chef. In January last year, Star News Group reported he’d be mixing it with Australia and New Zealand’s best young culinary talent in the Proud to be a Chef competition. He was among 32 apprentices selected to take master classes at award-winning Melbourne restaurants, evaluated on their passion and commitment to food service as well as their goals, aspirations

Hoang Le whips up a quick dish. 92449 and an original recipe. “I got to meet a lot of aspiring young chefs and a lot of mentors,” he said. “It made me much more excited about doing what I was doing.” Meeting people with similar attitudes to his own refuelled Mr Le’s drive. “It reinvigorated me and made me push myself even harder,” he said. He’s spent time in the Chateau Yering kitchen in the Yarra Valley and at Sebastian’s Food and Wine

in Hampton, and is now working at Vietnamese restaurant Dandelion in Elwood. “But I promised myself when I started my apprenticeship that I was going to travel,” he said. So in six weeks he’s leaving for London to expand his horizons and push his boundaries. He plans to holiday for a month before finding a job in a kitchen and has dreams of one day opening his own restaurant. Mr Le has had an interest in cooking from a young age and a “special

He worked as a labourer for more than three years after finishing high school before taking a month off to evaluate what he wanted to do with his life. “I finally decided to be true to myself,” he said. He moved back home and took up a chef apprenticeship at his local TAB with support from his family. “The power of food is amazing,” he said.

Council at your service THE council may move its Springvale customer service centre out of the civic precinct to save money. Councillor Peter Brown moved a motion to look for an alternative site at last Monday’s City of Greater Dandenong meeting. He asked that the council defer converting the former Springvale Council Chambers into a customer service centre and for councillors to receive a report on the options in April. The report is set to include a costbenefit analysis of using Springvale Library, the Springvale Council Chambers or leasing a property in the Springvale CBD. “The needs of the customer service centre are smaller than a coffee shop,” Cr Brown said. “Alternatives need to be reappraised.”

Number called By CAM LUCADOU-WELLS A WOMAN who tried to buy a mobile phone with a fake credit card and identification has been put on a 12-month good-behaviour bond without conviction. Ngoc Pham, 41, had intended to buy an i-Phone from a Dandenong mobile phone shop using the cards on 19 July 2012, Dandenong Magistrates’ Court was told last Monday. Police prosecutor Sarah Rafferty said staff noticed “holograms and other details” on the cards didn’t match their own Medicare and driver’s licence cards. They told police Pham

A cut above the rest By CASEY NEILL DANDENONG nurse Amanda du Toit shaved her head to support cancer research this month - for the fifth time. “I started working on a ward with cancer patients in 2008 and what they and their families go through inspired me to do the shave to try to find a cure for leukaemia,” she said. “I also lost a friend to cancer.” Ms du Toit’s first shave was in 2010 and her daughters joined her the following year, the youngest colouring and the oldest shaving and donating her hair. “In 2012 a colleague and I shaved and in 2013 three of us from work

shaved,” she said. This year she was on her own in the fund-raiser and lost her locks on 14 March. “Every small contribution towards finding a cure and making life easier for the patients helps, so each year the donations or sponsors you manage will make it easier for the patients,” she said. “You never know when someone really close to yourself will need the support. “After all, for a couple of weeks it is very easy hair days!” Visit www.worldsgreatestshave. com, click on ‘sponsor’ and search for ‘Amanda du Toit’ to donate.

didn’t seem interested in knowing the cost or details of the phone plan at the time. Pham, a disability pensioner and mother of four children, had “issues with her memory” due to fracturing her skull in a car accident in 2007, her lawyer said. “She had no good reason for committing the offence other than she needed a new phone and would have difficulty affording one.” Magistrate Julie O’Donnell said there was an element of planning in the crime but noted it was Pham’s first offence. She ordered Pham to pay $250 to the court’s charitable fund.

Passenger charged after crashing into cop car

Amanda was all smiles after having her head shaved for the fifth year.

THE passenger of a car that crashed into a parked divisional van outside Dandenong Police Station has been charged with reckless conduct causing serious injury. Nabin Chaulagain, 30, of no fixed address, was charged with two counts of reckless conduct endangering life, two counts of reckless conduct causing serious injury and four counts of criminal damage. He appeared in Dandenong

Magistrates’ Court last week. On 21 March, the car’s driver Saravanan Rajasakaram faced the court on charges including conduct endangering life over the incident. The court heard that police officers were metres away from the collision in Langhorne Street on 20 March, preparing for a morning pre-work run. The two co-accused were taken to The Alfred hospital after the crash.

BUSINESS SOUTH-EAST

Lost opportunities of no-job culture By CASEY NEILL GENERATIONAL unemployment is on the horizon for Greater Dandenong if employers and workers don’t change their attitudes This was the message from Ivan Neville who spoke about recruitment challenges at South East Business Networks’s (SEBN) breakfast at Highways in Springvale on 27 March. The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) labour analyst also participated in a questions and solutions panel alongside Anita Francis from the Department of Human Services (DHS), Todd Hartley from Hilton Manufacturing and Terry Breheny from Link Employment and Training. To finish, all attendees got out butcher’s paper and textas to brainstorm solutions to recruitment scenarios. SEBN manager Sandra George said the morning aimed to find a better match between what employers wanted and the available workforce. She’s established a Greater Dandenong Employment Taskforce that brings together employment, training and community organisations to discuss ways to better engage the labour market. Greater Dandenong is within the South East Melbourne priority employment area (PSE) - one of 21 recognised as areas that are vulnerable to slow-downs in the economy. Mr Neville said one in four children in Greater Dandenong aged under 15 lived in a jobless family.

Train order is direct hit for Bombardier BOMBARDIER in Dandenong received a $17 million train carriage order from the State Government last week. Premier Denis Napthine and Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder made the announcement at Bombardier on 23 March. It was on top of an existing order for 40 new VLocity carriages which was placed in November 2012. “This new three-carriage train will be capable of seating an additional 228 passengers, each and every trip for commuters travelling from Traralgon, Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo,” Dr Napthine said. The first of the 43 new VLocity railcars are to be delivered this year, and the last in late 2016.

Where are we going asks city Margaret Brabham from CRS Australia, Jill Wardle from AMES and City of Greater Dandenong’s Melda Rasool and Toby Sargent brainstorm. 117645 “So 24,500 children under 15 do not see their parents going to work every day,” he said. “They think this is normal. “We move almost inevitably toward generational unemployment.” And he said one in four people of working age in Greater Dandenong were receiving income support. Reducing this rate would help the area’s economy. Mr Neville said a recent survey of local employers showed they needed to change their expectations, particularly around experience. “Employers need to understand

the labour supply in this area and manage expectations,” he said. “We’re ruling out people who actually might have what it takes.” He said employability skills were vital and training and experience could follow. More work experience would improve young people’s employability skills, he said. Mr Neville also urged employers to look beyond traditional sources of labour, to the ageing workforce in particular, and improve workplace flexibility through part-time positions and phased retirement.

He said better utilising the migrant population would also reduce unemployment. More than 26,500 migrants have moved into the region over the past five years. About 25 per cent of these migrants of working age from “other than majority English speaking countries” have a degree. “We are not taking advantage of their skills,” he said. “These people are occupying jobs that could be filled by people who don’t have their skills or qualifications.”

WHERE is central Dandenong heading? That’s the question Dandenong Retail Traders’ Association (DRTA) is asking at its next forum on Tuesday 8 April. DRTA chairwoman Glenys Cooper said the area remained one of Melbourne’s major shopping areas despite a number of changes in recent years and increased competition from surrounding precincts. “We are hoping to gather information and perceptions on where central Dandenong business, including retailing, is heading,” she said. “This information will be recorded and it will assist in future programs for the association.” The open forum and networking event is to be held at the Ramada Encore Hotel, 50 McCrae Street, Dandenong, from 6pm to about 7.30pm. Call Ms Cooper on 0417 394 722 or 9794 9397 for more information about the forum or DRTA.

TAC Cup - round 2

Hard work By JARROD POTTER WRITTEN in blue ink on a whiteboard were these two simple words for the Dandenong Stingrays to play and abide by in its TAC Cup season opener. The demands on the Stingrays after last year’s horror finish - downed 112 points by Eastern Ranges in the 2013 TAC Cup grand final - would have been great and the lads stood up to the challenge... eventually. Under new coach Craig Black - the hard work he craved from the Stingrays didn’t show up in the first quarter-anda-half. Dandenong was blown away by Gippsland as the Power extended its lead beyond 40 points at one stage and threatened to tear the Stingrays apart. Little by little Dandenong turned the match around. Tom Lamb (six goals) was swung up forward to great effect as he clunked a number of contested marks. The run-and-carry from Alex Harnett and Mitchell White also kept the game moving while TAC Cup debuts continued promisingly as Tooradin-Dalmore ruckman Elliot Hunt showed he belonged at the level with a hit-out spree. The run on came late in the second quarter as goals to Wheeler, Wilson and Lamb revived the Rays. After half-time Dandenong was

dominion, with three quick goals levelling the once heavily-lopsided scoreline. Showing the brave characteristics necessary for a captain - Daniel Capiron was involved in a collision

Dandenong District Cricket Association

Hit the road running By JARROD POTTER PARKFIELD premiership captain Steve Spoljaric is on the move. A week on from playing the allround match of his life, batting the Bears out of trouble in the DDCA Turf 1 grand final with 106 before snaring 4/49 with the ball, Spoljaric has left Dunblane Reserve and will head down the South Gippsland Freeway to join Cranbourne. Spoljaric said the time was right to head off with Parkfield strong on the field and Cranbourne on the rise into the top division. “They had a chat to me the previous season and they showed their interest, but they didn’t make it (to Turf 1),” Spoljaric said. “This year they have, and what happened to us was a bit of a surprise… I had a think about things and thought I’d done this and that and I think I’ve left them (Parkfield) in a healthy state on field. “They’ve got enough talent to see them through, provided they stay together over the next few years… it was time to move on.” The 2013/14 Wookey Medalist - his third in four seasons - will be part of a bumper squad for the newly promoted Turf 1 team Cranbourne, which features former Buckley Ridges all-rounder Te Ahu Davis. “When you do your research they shouldn’t have been in Turf 2… hopefully a little bit of my direction and we can turn them into a powerhouse like they should be,” Spoljaric said. “Just happy for the fresh start and it’s going to be good fun… I’m there for two years and I hope I can get them on a very dominant path.” Looking back on his time at

Steve Spoljaric is heading off to Cranbourne after having guided Parkfield to premiership glory this season. 116838 Pictures: JARROD POTTER Parkfield, Spoljaric was rapt with the medals he’s won individually but loved getting the side a premiership and was still thinking about his run-out of Springvale South’s Aaron Morison in the grand final. “That little cheeky run out was the highlight for me,” Spoljaric said about the grand final win. “Doing something that only I knew what was going on at the time - everyone else was probably wiping their eyes, wondering what happened then.” Spoljaric’s finishes up his time at Parkfield with 3055 runs and 117 wickets including nine centuries and three six-wicket hauls.

Stingrays utility Aaron Wilson snares a strong grab. 117763 but he brushed off the knock to get up under his own strength. Gippsland’s kicking efficiency would have kept the Power awake on Saturday night - kicking 1.7 in the last term to squander a 28-to-19 scoring shot advantage to walk away without the points Gippsland squeezed a late goal to bring the match back to two points and eventually kicked a point with mere moments left in the game. Dandenong would hold on by a solitary point as the siren blared - in what seemed like an eternity - to spell

an end to a thrilling season opener. “I thought early on we had opportunities but going forward we didn’t kick the ball that well,” Black said. “To the boys credit they fought back hard to get back into the game. “Sam Geurts, Keiran Collins and Jacob Weitering proved defensively invulnerable - clutching any high ball that floated their way and rebounding strongly to impress on debut. “For a 17-year-old who hasn’t played a game at this level to go back and show the composure and mark the footy - and Jacob Weitering - they

Pictures: JARROD POTTER (Power) kept bombing the ball in and our boys stood up,” Black said. Even with his first TAC Cup match and win in the bag now, the result for Black meant more for his charges to grit their teeth and get back into the clash. “Little bit nervous before the game but to win by a point, I was really happy for the boys - 42 points down to be able to work ourselves back into the game then win the game so I’m more happy for them,” Black said. Dandenong heads to Simonds Stadium on Saturday to face Geelong from 2pm.

National Premier Leagues - round 2

Thunder out of nowhere

By JARROD POTTER

DANDENONG Thunder pulled off a result that many around the National Premier League would struggle to fathom. The Thunder, battling last season’s State Knockout Cup champions Green Gully, had been swamped at the back throughout the first 35 minutes, but the Cavaliers failed to seize its chances in front of the box before everything started improving for the visitors soon after. Green Gully peppered the Dandenong goals throughout the first half and everyone thought the game was over when Thunder midfielder Kris Kioussis departed - to leave the Thunder one-man down. “It was an amazing game,” Thunder coach Dean Hennessey said. “Once we lost Kris - and to be fair we hadn’t played that well in the first half an hour - the boys were all very much up for the game. “The players were aware that I coached Green Gully last year and really focused on trying to do a good job for us doing what we were good at.” With only 10 men the Thunder had its back to the wall, but the Dandenong resolve kicked in and a fight-back of legendary status ensued. Rotations forced Keiran Dover to be substituted for the defensively minded Anthony Giannopoulos and the shuffle left Thunder playing a 4-4-1 lineup. Holding onto a drawn clash at half-time, Dandenong exploded in the second stanza as Jake Nakic almost had the go-ahead goal. Enter Matt Millar. The Pearcedale powerhouse stormed through the midfield at the 75-minute mark of the clash, side-stepping Green Gully defenders at will before launching a thunderous strike into the bottom of the goals to erupt George Andrews Reserve. Dandenong held out Green Gully for the next 15 minutes to push the Thunder up to fourth on the NPL ladder with results still to come this weekend. “Matt Millar was always going to be a feature,” Hennessey said. “Millar scored a great goal off a great build up and great run and it turned into a very fabulous outcome based on a difficult circumstance. “I thought we dealt with it well - the boys were very organised and Green Gully found it hard to break us down.” Dandenong Thunder faces Hume City on Saturday night

SPORT AFL Metro Championships

SEABL - round 2

When four Bulls... just isn’t enough By JARROD POTTER FOUR Bulls weren’t enough to change the fortunes of the Eastern Football League downed easily by 46 points as the VAFA maintained top spot in the interleague rankings. Noble Park quartet Stewart Kemperman, Brett Dore, Sam Monaghan and Tim Kelly donned the red, white and black colours of the league in the revived AFL Victoria Metro Championships. This year’s marquee match had the EFL facing the Victorian Amateur Football Association (VAFA) for the right to next year’s number one ranking. An early Eastern lead turned into a stopping point as the EFL couldn’t move off two-goals-one through the second term. From there the VAFA ticked along to grasp the lead before it set about destroying the EFL. The VAFA slammed on seven goals in the last term as Brendan Goss (5 goals) stormed home with the clash. EFL interleague vice-captain and Noble Park stalwart Kemperman was listed among the best alongside former Hawthorn premiership ruckman Simon Taylor and Balwyn trio Taylor Gilchrist, Shane Tregear and Jarryd Chirgwin. Northern Football League will vie with the VAFA for top spot in 2015 after knocking off Essendon District 13.9 (87) to 7.8 (50). Eastern will face the Western Region in next year’s third-versus-fourth clash. Southern Football League - with three Greater Dandenong area clubs, Dandenong, Sandown Cobras and Lyndale, didn’t fare any better than Eastern, downed 6.10 (46) to 11.16 (82) by the Western Region Football League to fall to sixth-of-six on the Metro Championships table.

Bravo for Alpe D’Huez’s second win

THERE was not much joy in Dandenong’s SEABL doubleheader at Geelong Basketball Stadium on Saturday night, with the Rangers downed twice by the Supercats. The women’s team narrowly lost 56-63 to the Supercats as the Rangers fell away after quarter time. A 23-12 lead was squandered with Alex Duck (19 points) and former WNBL Dandenong Ranger Sara Blicavs (14 points) charging past Dandenong. Jacinta Kennedy - who readers of the Journal might remember as Jacinta Hamilton during her WNBL playing days before marrying Socceroo Josh Kennedy - snagged seven points and 11 rebounds to maintain a double-double average to her SEABL career. Also stepping up for Dandenong were Faith Probst (9 points, 7 rebounds) and Tenaya Phillips (9

points, 7 rebounds), who attacked the key with aplomb. The pain only got worse for Rangers’ fans that travelled down the coast with the defending champion Rangers thumped by the Supercats’ men 76-103. After once again holding a quarter time lead, 29-26 Dandenong was completely outplayed by the Supercats down the stretch as Eric Gaff (19 points, 16 rebounds) lit up the court for Geelong. Mike Mercer (24 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds) also impressed in the victory. On the Dandenong side of the ledger, Brent Hobba (26 points) and Tony Lewis (19 points, 14 rebounds) posted monster numbers. Dandenong women have a bye this weekend, while Dandenong men face a 2013 SEABL championship rematch against Mount Gambier on Friday night from 8pm.

Big V - round 3

Cougars dodge the bullets

The magnificent mountain Alpe D’Huez has made the second summit of a Grade 5 victory. 117767 Picture: SUPPLIED

By JASON ADAMS PROVEN performer Alpe D’Huez announced himself as a stayer not to be taken lightly, winning his Grade 5 final over 715m last Thursday night at Sandown Park. It took Alpe D’Huez eight attempts to claim his first win over the 715m at Sandown, but in claiming his second win over the trip he proved it was no fluke. Trainer Kelly Bravo was delighted with the run, however was a little concerned

about the rise in distance. “We weren’t too sure if he was capable of running over 700 as he doesn’t like to work too hard, though we’re very pleased with his recent efforts as he’s been finishing off his races really well.” said Bravo. As expected the former Group 1 Hume Cup winner was slow out of the boxes, settling mid field first time past the post and looking threatening down the back straight, before storming past early leader Speed Lane stop-

ping the clock at an impressive 42.09. Alpe D’Huez is as sound as he has ever been after an unfortunate run of injuries throughout his 56 race career. “Being so prone to injury we don’t trial him too often, but he’s been pulling up really well after his races which has been great”. Alpe D’Huez has predominantly been racing over the middle distance over the last 12 months, but the strength of the greyhound is not some-

thing that has come along with age, having consistently raced over the distance since the start of his career in late 2011. There could not be a better time for a greyhound with the attributes of Alpe D’Huez to be striking some good form, with the RSN Sandown Cup just 50 days away. “Yes, we will definitely be heading to the Sandown Cup, as long as he stays sound and injury free we will certainly be there”.

MAINTAINING top billing in Big V Division 2 were the Keysborough Cougars men, thrashing North East Bushrangers by 36 points (81 to 45). Holding the home side to a scant nine points in the first quarter, Keysborough’s defence was too much for the Bushrangers to shoot through. Nathaniel O’Hara (17 points, 6 rebounds) led the scoresheet for the Cougars while Jackson Houpt (17 points, 6 rebounds) also featured prominently in the win with Kevin Benn (11 points, 10 rebounds) reeling in one of his customary doubledoubles. Keysborough women went close to their first victory in the grey, red and blue - downed 64 to 77 by fellow newcomers North East Bushrangers. The Cougars’ three-point game in the second quarter lit up the court as Tamara Hewish (22 points) hit six-from-11 from beyond the line.

Foul trouble cost the Cougars the playing services of Lucinda Johnson (8 points, 5 rebounds) and Tamara Booth (11 points, 5 rebounds) while three other Keysborough players also found their way to four fouls in a rough-and-tumble clash for both sides. Ratika Palat (10 points, 7 rebounds) also notched double figures while Nikolina Sukurica (9 points) notched her best figures for the Cougars. Keysborough men and women finished their north-east sojourn with a trip to Shepparton Basketball Stadium, where the men were downed by the Shepparton Gators 68 to 83 and the women Cougars fared no better losing 49 to 61. A double-header at Springers Leisure Centre on Saturday evening April 5, has both Keysborough’s sides facing Coburg Giants from 6pm.

SPORT Victorian Sub District Cricket Association - grand final

Bulls stampede home to win By JARROD POTTER OAKLEIGH had the wood on Noble Park this final’s series. After the Bulls convincingly charged into the finals they were given a rude awakening by Oakleigh smashing 8/306 in the VSDCA East/ West 1st XI qualifying final before bowling Noble Park for 252. The Bulls didn’t let their qualifying final clash worry them this week as they stormed through to their third Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association premiership. Noble Park (7/152) managed to overcome everything Oakleigh (117) could throw at them. The good work started on Saturday as Rizan Mawzoon (5/30) tore through the best of the Oakleigh batsmen, with solid support from Anthony Salomon (2/22) and Johan Vorster (1/26). Rob McCarthy (25) and Brent Warren (26) were the best the home side could muster as Mawzoon bowled his way through the order. Ben Edmunds (32) finished Saturday not out on 29 and after Marasinghe Perera (26) with Marasinghe Perera (26) falling late in the day to a spectacular one-handed grasp from Lee Hodgson. It was all Oakleigh traffic on Sunday afternoon as Noble Park lost five wickets en route to the premiership. Playing through the pain of an infected, broken finger - Johan Vorster (51 not out) was pivotal with the bat - coming in at a crisis at 5/83 and guiding the side through to the premiership 7/152. Vorster and Sean ‘Sharky’ Schubert (10 not out) was pivotal to getting the Bulls to victory after a tough time handling Splatt (4/28) and Hodgson (3/29) early. “It’s the ultimate - I don’t think there’s any other way you can describe it,” Edmunds said. “It’s been one of those years we’ve hung deep and stuck tough and that probably showed… when we did get under a bit of pressure, to rebound.“Did all the hard work yesterday but I didn’t think it would be easy getting 50-odd today (Sunday). Praising his all-rounder Vorster, Edmunds said the ability for the South African star and Scubert to bounce back and push ahead highlighted the capabilities of the entire team. “Vorster did a fantastic job and Sharky (Schubert) batted extremely well and kept everything together,” Edmunds said. “(Vorster) has got a broken finger and it’s very infected - he usually bats at four but he ended up batting at eight today so in some ways that may have

“I’m glad I could do my bit for the club and the team and I’m very happy.” “They came out really well,” Mawzoon said. “Early on wasn’t much swing, but after that I was able to hit the bat in the right areas and get the wickets at the right times. “Bowled patiently - 20 odd overs for 30 runs - so we had to be very patient to get the wickets.” It is Noble Park’s third VSDCA first XI premiership after wins in 2002/03 and 2005/06.

MOTORING Shine and substance FRONTAL chrome is to the automotive market what white teeth are to the entertainment industry, a sign of quality and style, although both can be irritating if overdone. The new Nissan Altima is a case in point. A swathe of shiny metal up front would not look out of place on a fifties Yank tank but in the 21st century we search for something a little more subtle to show off the pedigree of a car. Wide horizontal chrome slats dominate the radiator intake, a large Nissan badge announcing the car’s arrival. Further chrome embellishments include door handles and side window surrounds. To be fair, the new mid-size sedan is smack bang up to date with its coupe-style aerodynamic profile - giving a co-efficient of friction of 0.30 - and, in the case of our test vehicle, 18-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels. LED tail lights put their modernday stamp on the vehicle. The Nissan Altima is available in four model grades - ST, ST-L and Ti, powered by a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine and the range-topping Ti-S with a 3.5-litre V6 under the bonnet. Prices start at $29,990, with an estimated driveaway figure of $33,513, for the entry-level ST, while the Ti-S rounds out the range

at $45,390 ($50,784), the latter the test car in which we have spent the last week. The car carries a number of state-of-the-art technologies including active understeer control which incorporates intelligent control and instant-response braking on the inside front wheel during cornering, bringing vehicle dynamic and traction control into action, hence eliminating understeer. It is almost undetectable to the driver when it operates and Nissan is quick to point out that the system is designed primarily for everyday operation as opposed to during evasive manoeuvres in an emergency. Steering draws on an electronic hydraulic power-assisted system that feeds a smooth feel back to the driver, while producing fuel economy by using electric power rather than drawing it from the engine. Safety systems we have come to expect in expensive premium models are included in the Ti and Ti-S Altimas, with blind spot warning, lane departure warning and moving object detection topping the list. Nissan would like us to think that riding in an Altima is out of this world. That’s why the Japanese automobile maker called on US space agency NASA to come up with the most comfortable seats. To inspect the Nissan range contact Berwick Nissan, 6-8 Kangan Drive, Berwick. Phone 9796 1777.
