■ Residents fed up with constant car thefts are living in a...

Street of fear By XAVIER SMERDON RESIDENTS of a Werribee street have said they are too scared to park their cars out the front of their own houses after a constant spate of break-ins and thefts. Dave Morrison has been living in High St for about three years and said his four-wheel drive has been the target of attempted break-ins twice. Both times the lock has been damaged causing hundreds of dollars worth of damage. One of his neighbours has had their car stolen three times while his stepdaughter Larissa had the window of her car smashed by a brick after leaving it unattended for just 20 minutes. Mr Morrison’s neighbour Paul McGinness said that he had woken up to find his car doors wide open. “Just the feeling of them being in there is a bit weird. You feel victimised,” Mr McGinness said. “They are pretty brazen and everyone is definitely mindful of what they leave out now.” Mr Morrison said almost all of his immediate neighbours had been targeted by the thieves and some residents had been hit with repair bills into the thousands of dollars. “There is no patten to it, it can happen at day time or night time,” Mr Morrison said. “This is a really good street and the people that live here are really good people. Almost everyone that lives here works full time or is retired.” Mr Morrison said he had often seen suspicious people walking down his street but as soon as anyone looked at them they would cover their heads with their hooded jumpers and turn away. “If we’ve all been hit so many times god knows how many people have been hit in the other streets around here,” he said.

“You never know when it is going to happen, all you know is the next morning your gear is missing.” Another resident, who lives on the other end of the street to Mr Morrison and only wanted to be identified as Dorothy, said her car had been stolen twice. “I don’t even have a car anymore because to live in this street and have a car costs you too much,” Dorothy said. “I love this street and I love my

neighbours but these hooligans have left me living in fear.” Acting Detective Sergeant and Officer in Charge of the Wyndham Crime Impact Team, Nick Di-Mieri, told Star police were working to try and bring an end to these kinds of offences. “The Crime Impact Team was set up to help, dismantle, disrupt and or neutralise high impact crime such as theft of motor vehicle and theft from motor vehicle,” Acting Det Sgt Di-Mieri said. “As you could imagine the unit is

extremely busy covering the Wyndham PSA. Our crime rate for these offences is on the decline however as you would appreciate there is always room for improvement. Acting Det Sgt Di-Mieri said his team was looking at beginning an operation that would tackle thefts of and from cars in the Wyndham area. He said as most of the offences are caused by youths within Wyndham and the operation would target bail compliance checks and repeat offenders.

Jobs plan fail: MP MELTON MP Don Nardella has slammed the Napthine Government for failing to produce a jobs plan despite a marked increase in unemployment across the North West. The ALP’s Mr Nardella said the most recent Australian Bureau of Statistics Labour Force figures show the unemployment rate in the North West region has jumped from 6.5 per cent or 10,200 people - under Labor in 2010 to 9.1 per cent - 16,000 people - in February 2014 under the Napthine government. The North West region encompasses the municipalities of Brimbank, Melton, Moonee Valley, Macedon, Hume and Moreland.

“The new Australian Bureau of Statistics figures were shocking for Melton families and those looking for work,” Mr Nardella said. “Denis Napthine still hasn’t released a jobs plan, but Labor’s Project 10,000 will invest $2 billion on Melbourne and Regional roads and create 10,000 new jobs across Victoria. “Labor’s Plan for Jobs and Growth will see more investment in job-creating projects for communities throughout Victoria and in Melton. “Under Denis Napthine, Melton is losing jobs, businesses are closing their doors and workers are worried about their future.” Western Metropolitan Re-

gion MP Andrew Elsbury hit back last week, saying the government was working hard to create jobs in the region. “There was a note on those statistics to say that the standard deviation is pretty high considering how small the region is,” the Liberal’s Mr Elsbury said. “We’ve got the East Werribee employment precinct project, which we’re putting our full support behind and will generate 54,000 permanent jobs over its lifespan. “We’ve also got the Airport West and Essendon Fields employment precinct that was announced by Minister (Matthew) Guy last week, so that’s an extra 15,000 jobs in the northern part of the electorate.”

CHILDREN at a Werribee school will be swiping their way into the future thanks to a grant they were recently awarded. Westgrove Primary School was given a $1200 grant from the Telstra Kids Fund which will mean it is able to provide its students with iPads. Telstra Country Wide Area Manager, Duane Dalton, said the iPads would be used to support the school’s numeracy and literacy intervention program while also assisting with advanced learning and increasing students’ confidence. Grade 4 student Eh Kel Ler was just one of the kids that tested out one of the new iPads last week. 117136 Picture: DAMJAN JANEVSKI

Hillier view KEVIN HILLIER SOCIAL media is killing our communication skills, giving us an excuse to not interact and offering a diversion to being involved in real life. I base my thoughts on my observations at various places in the last week or so. How many times when you have been dining out of late, do you see people texting rather than talking to the person they are sharing a table with? Last weekend in Inverloch a cafe I walked past had a sign outside saying: “No wi fi. You will just have to talk to the person at your table or the table next to you.” It was gold for me because I am no fan of the non-communication that is invading our society. I see it all the time in restaurants, at my son’s swimming classes - parents don’t watch their children because they are on their mobiles. In offices, I know people are sitting just metres from each other and rather than get up and go face to face they send an email or a text message. Have you noticed this as well? What are the more bizarre examples you can share? I challenge any cafe or eatery in Wyndham to emulate the Inverloch cafe.

RECENTLY I have criticised the changes to Old Geelong Rd at the intersection of Forsyth Rd, and now I turn my attention to a new set of lights on Morris Rd at the intersection of Bellbridge Drive.

This is an intersection I use a lot. It has become very confusing, even more congested, and to be honest, more likely to be the scene of an accident than ever before. They have put in a pedestrian crossing, which is totally useless, as I have not seen one pedestrian there in the last three weeks, since the lights were installed. The fact there is another set of lights just 500 metres away is also relevant. The flow of traffic seems worse, and cars entering Morris from Bellbridge both ways, have been disadvantaged. As I see it, they have put the lights on the wrong side of Bellbridge Drive. If they had put them towards Sayers Rd, they would have allowed traffic leaving Bellbridge Drive a better flow both ways. I would love to hear from readers regarding the changes you have seen in your area that need to be changed or the ones they have got right or wrong. IF you have any news or events please let me know on the email kevin@howdypartnersmedia.com.au and you can follow me on twitter @KevinHillier and check out the website howdypartnersmedia.com.au 402308-JF20-9

Win for train commuters By XAVIER SMERDON WYNDHAM and Melton residents are guaranteed to benefit from the upcoming State Election with both Labor and the Coalition pledging to abolish Zone 2 public transport, a move that it is claimed will save commuters up to $750 a year. Premier Denis Napthine announced last week that if he won the November election he would remove Zone 2 and also offer free public transport within the Melbourne CBD.

“For a full-fare commuter who currently buys a Zone 1 + 2 daily fare there will be a saving in the order of approximately $5.00 a day,” Dr Napthine said. “A commuter who pays for a Zone 1 + 2 ticket each day will save around $1,200 each year, or, if using an annual myki pass, will save more than $750. “Tram travel within the CBD and Docklands will be free in a move that will enhance Melbourne’s reputation as an international city.” Dr Napthine said the plan would

take effect on 1 January 2015 at a cost of $100 million every year. Shadow Treasurer and Member for Tarneit, Tim Pallas, said that Labor would match the plan being offered by the Coalition if they were elected. “No matter who you vote for in November, Melburnians will get cheaper public transport but only Labor will deliver better public transport,” Mr Pallas said. “We need infrastructure plans that will remove the bottlenecks from the system so that we can run

more trains more often. “Only Labor will remove the 50 most dangerous and congested level crossings, including Werribee Street and Cherry Street. Only Labor will build Melbourne Metro Rail, which would allow for a threefold increase in the number of trains to and from Wyndham in peak hour.” While Labor has promised to remove level crossings, funded by selling the Port of Melbourne, the Napthine Government is hoping it can win votes with the East West Link.

Get set for more growth WYNDHAM Council has reached an agreement with the Metropolitan Planning Authority (MPA) which will see the early delivery of key road infrastructure linking Wyndham’s western growth front to the Princes Freeway. The Council will now confirm conditional support for the Wyndham West Development Contribution Plan (DCP) in a letter to the Planning Minister. The Wyndham West DCP covers a 2,700 hectare piece of land, which includes areas soon to be developed in sections of Mambourin, Wyndham Vale and Werribee West. When the MPA first placed the Plan on exhibition, Wyndham Council raised concerns relating to the provision of open active space and requested a funding commitment on the construction of a key section of the Armstrong-Ison Rd Link to the Princes Freeway. Mayor Bob Fairclough said ongoing negotiations with the State Government and key developers had been positive. “While there are still some details to be confirmed, the discussions so far indicate that a constructive outcome is likely, which will be great news for residents,” Cr Fairclough said. “Some concessions have been necessary, including removing the need for a “cap and release” element in the plan, which would limit development until infrastructure is agreed to, however we are positive about the commitments being made that will largely deliver the same outcome. These possible commitments include road infrastructure being constructed from Ballan Rd to the Princes Freeway, via Armstrong then Ison Rd and the prospect of a land swap to create open space north of Presidents Park in Wyndham Vale.” “While this in principle agreement is promising and, when finalised, will deliver much needed commitments, Wyndham City is continuing to advocate on behalf of residents for improved infrastructure on a number of different fronts as development occurs.” For more information on the Wyndham West DCP, visit www.wyndham.vic.gov.au

Anti-wrinkle injections for $11 per unit

New police uniform hits the street beat By CHARLENE MACAULAY POLICE in Wyndham, Hobsons Bay and Maribyrnong are sporting a new look this week. Officers stepped out in the new look dark blue uniform on Monday, which includes long sleeve shirts for all police, shirt pockets for females and tactical trousers, giving police the option between tactical and office pants. There is also summer and win-

ter undergarment to wear under the Integrated Operational Equipment Vests. The new attire was unveiled in December 2012, and Chief Commissioner Ken Lay and other members of force command started to wear the uniform in June last year, marking the first significant change in Victoria Police’s uniform for more than 30 years. The new uniform will be rolled out progressively across the state

until May. Acting Superintendent Geoff Kedge said local police were pleased to receive the new look uniforms. “There were about 80 different ways to wear the uniform, so this change will ensure a more streamlined look for Victoria Police,” he said. “This uniform is fresh and modern and will be easily recognisable on the streets of Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong and Wyndham.

“While our uniform may have changed, our commitment to keeping the community safe remains.” Victoria Police and Rotary have teamed up to recycle around 150,000 old uniform garments, which will be collected and de-badged before being donated. Anyone interested in volunteering to help should contact their local Rotary club.

Westmed Cosmetic Medicine is offering anti-wrinkle injections at the 50% discount price of $11 per unit for the months of March, April & May.

Outsource outrage By CHARLENE MACAULAY VICTORIA University may outsource key services in a bid to cut down on university spending. Child care and IT are among the “non-core” services being considered as part of the proposal to address recent budget cuts, including a $40 million TAFE funding cut. In a statement released last week, VU Deputy Vice Chancellor Professor Duncan Bentley said the university had been looking at the possibility of some outsourcing, but no firm decision had been made. Prof Bentley there was the possibility of job cuts if the outsourcing plan was implement-

ed. “As with many universities, VU is looking at all options to improve the service we offer to students, staff and partners and to focus on our core business of teaching and learning, research and knowledge exchange,” he said. “If the university finds that non-core operations can be offered by a third party in a way that improves our core business we will certainly consider it. “With this in mind, we are exploring some options, around our facilities, infrastructure and IT operations to test the market. “Obviously, there is no point in outsourcing services unless there are strong value benefits both in terms of efficiency and, most importantly, service to

Relax @ Little

students, partners and staff. “We are expecting some job losses in 2014 as we, like other universities, continue to face budget pressures, but the final numbers are not yet clear.” NTEU VU president Paul Adams slammed the plan during a union meeting last week. Mr Adams said the restructuring of 1100 staff last year has caused enormous administrative problems for the university, while academic workloads have skyrocketed. Meanwhile, a VU performance assessment found low staff satisfaction with the six newly created shared services portfolios announced last year.

Carlo Addamo celebrates after two separate entries won on the same night. 117466 Picture: JOE MASTROIANNI

TWO lucky people who won first division in TattsLotto after buying both of their tickets from the same Hoppers Crossing store have failed to claim their prizes. The unknown punters bought separate tickets and each took home more than $500,000. One of them pocketed $573,000, $50,000 more than the other person, because they had bought a more expensive ticket, but both of them picked all six correct numbers. Carlo Addamo, the owner of Target Lotto in the Hoppers Crossing Shopping Centre where the tickets were sold on Saturday 22 March, said he was amazed to see that he had two

winners from one lottery draw. “We came in to open the store on Sunday at 8am and it told us straight away on the computer that we had sold two first division tickets,” Mr Addamo said. “I was absolutely amazed. We usually have one first division winner a year and we hadn’t had one for two years before this so we were thinking ‘what’s going on’. “Now we’ve made up for it.” Mr Addamo, who owns the store with his wife Christine, said he had previously sold two winning tickets in successive draws, but never two from the same draw. It is believed it has only happened once before in Victoria. Mr Adammo said these most

recent winners took his tally of first division tickets sold to 27, and his biggest winner had taken home $9 million on their own. He said his store was still void of any lucky charms though. “I think we’re one of the luckiest shops in Australia,” he said. “We don’t have any statues or anything like that. We’ve been lucky so now we’re too scared to get one. It might break our luck.” A TattsLotto spokesperson said the winning tickets were registered to players but the company had been unable to contact them and as of last week they had still not come forward to collect their winnings.

A place where exotic pets get the very best of care By XAVIER SMERDON LIONS, tigers and bears. When it comes to the kinds of animals that Dr Sasha Herbert has treated, these are just the tip of the iceberg. Dr Herbert is the Exotic Pet Registrar at the Melbourne University Vet Hospital in Werribee. Her job requires her to treat all the unusual pets that come through the hospital’s doors every day. For the past 20 years Dr Herbert has travelled the world caring for animals that might not fit the normal vet’s bill. She told Star that since settling in at Werribee her usual clients consisted of rabbits, ferrets, rats, reptiles and amphibians. Last week she was treating a wild turtle that had sustained serious injuries, possibly after being run over by a car, and a guinea pig, Cookie, that was undergoing chemotherapy to treat lymphoma. “People can be very judgmental of which pet is deserving of surgery or medical treatment, or which kind of animal is deserving of having money spent on them for medical procedures,” Dr Herbert said. “But they are all loved pets.” Her new best friend is Hellenki the carpet python which was surrendered by its owner after it was discovered it had a rare disease, the Sunshine Virus.

IVE TEST DR! NOW

WERRIBEE HYUNDAI Dr Sasha Herbert with Hellenki the carpet python. 117356 Picture: KRISTIAN SCOTT Dr Herbert decided to adopt the snake herself so that it could be studied and more could be learned about its disease. “It’s not making her sick which is the amazing thing,” she said. “By studying her we’re hoping that we can eventually learn a lot more about the virus, such as how long it takes for snakes to shed it from their system and how it is transmitted.” Dr Herbert, who has even performed intricate surgeries on

frogs, said Wyndham residents would be surprised to learn that the services she offered were available on their doorstep. “We get people from all over Melbourne coming here to have their pets treated,” she said. “I love working at the university too because there’s so many clever people walking around. “No matter what I’m dealing with there’s always someone who can add their expertise.”

New Plaza work begins By XAVIER SMERDON WORK on the long-awaited Werribee Plaza redevelopment finally began last week following an official ceremony. The Plaza, which will now be known as Pacific Werribee, was opened in 1985 and over the next two years will be the focus of a $370 million overhaul. Wyndham Mayor Bob Fairclough said the redevelopment would boost economic activity in the area. “Werribee Plaza is a major asset for the West,” Cr Fairclough said. “The redevelopment of Werribee Plaza to Pacific Werribee will ensure the Centre becomes

a destination for the rapidly growing community offering more retail and lifestyle choices.” Graham Terry from the Pacific Group of Companies, who owns the shopping centre, said the redevelopment would create 400 jobs during the construction phase and up to 1500 retail jobs once complete. It will see the size of the centre grow by over 35,000 square metres. “The company is committed to building its flagship property into more than a shopping centre,” Mr Terry said. “The plan has been developed to meet the needs of the customers, retailers and the community to be a first choice

destination when it comes to retail and lifestyle experiences in the West.” Probuild has been awarded the contract to complete the construction and early works have already commenced on a new dining and entertainment precinct. A statement from the Pacific Group of Companies gave a detailed deadline for key works to be completed. This month a new 10 bus terminal interchange will be opened while a new Target and specialty stores will open by the middle of 2015. A new two-level Myer will be opened by the middle of 2016 while the fresh food precinct will be finished by late 2016.

WERRIBEE HYUNDAI Dee Dee gets close to a toy puppy. 117516

Picture: DAMJAN JANEVSKI

Puppy love required By XAVIER SMERDON WYNDHAM residents who love puppies and would like to use their training skills to help improve someone else’s life are being encouraged to sign up as a Puppy Parent. Assistance Dogs Australia is looking for residents who can offer their time and energy to help raise a puppy that will eventually be used to perform everyday tasks for a person with a physical disability. The organisation’s K9 Victoria Trainer, Dee Moore, who is from Werribee, said raising an assistance dog was a way of helping others. “Raising a puppy lets you

give back to the community with the added bonus of the pitter pattering of puppy paws,” Ms Moore said. “Puppy raisers and sitters will teach these pups to undertake tasks that are difficult or even impossible for people with physical disabilities to achieve. “They’ll teach them to pick up all sorts of objects such as mobile phones and keys and make sure they are able to alert bark when required. “You can also take the pups to the shops, cafes, on public transport and even to the cinema as it is all these experiences that will help them become an assistance dog.” Ms Moore will help future

puppy trainers by providing them with instructions and support for the 14 months they spend on their L-plates before returning to the National Training Centre in Sydney for advanced training. “The best part of being a puppy raiser or sitter is helping to change someone’s life by training a fantastic assistance dog,” she said. “To see the impacts these dogs make on their recipients is priceless.” Each dog takes two years to train and is worth an investment of $27,000 but they are placed with recipients free of charge.

By XAVIER SMERDON WYNDHAM’S inadequate justice system is crumbling under the strains of a booming population with residents forced to travel to Sunshine or the Melbourne CBD to access services, according to a legal assistance provider. Senior Policy Lawyer at the Wyndham Legal Service, Shorna Moore, said the lack of services meant Wyndham residents were being failed by their governments. “Limited service provision remains a key issue in Wyndham especially in terms of justice services. By simply providing limited outreach services in Wyndham, governments are failing to meet the needs of the rapidly growing population and putting more stress on those who live in outer-metropolitan

ham Legal Service is brought to the fore and receives the recognition and support that our community deserves,” he said. The report claims that Wyndham has an old and inappropriate court building that does not meet the community’s needs, limited physical presence of Victoria Legal Aid, a single community legal centre whose resources restrict its community outreach, a police station that cannot even accommodate its staff, and other significant issues. “It is a commonly held view within Wyndham that the Werribee Magistrates’ Court has outgrown its current useful life and is now a security risk for the public. The Court was built in 1980 to service a population of up to 40,000 residents,” Ms Moore said.

FOR 14 years one Werribee resident has been trying to put his life journey on paper, and now he has achieved his dream. Paul Rogers started writing his autobiography in 2000 and many edits and rejections later, it has finally been published. The book, Untracked, tells the story of Mr Rogers’ life, which started in a commission area of Ashburton. After leaving school at 15-years-old to become an apprentice, he eventually decided to become a Catholic priest. After seven years of training in the seminary Mr Rogers was ordained as a priest and spent the next seven years holding sermons throughout Melbourne before being sent to Werribee where he worked as a priest for three years. The next few years created the spark that would lead Mr Rogers to alter his life drastically. “I found myself more unsettled with what the Catholic Church was saying about issues such as its attitude towards women and the way they wanted priests to live in a big house all by themselves,” Mr Rogers said. “The more questions I asked the more silence there was. Whenever I questioned the hierarchy I was pushed aside. “I felt that if I stayed in the Church I wouldn’t be true to the community or to myself.” Mr Rogers left the Catholic Church at the age of 38 before getting married and starting a

He said he was overwhelmed to see his story in print. “When I opened the first box of books my hand started shaking,” he said. “There’s a great sense of relief, but also pride. When I was able to give the book to key

people that helped me in the process, that was quite uplifting.” Mr Rogers said he hoped that readers of the book would reflect on their own lives. For more information on purchasing the book email paulrogers@tpg.com.au

WERRIBEE HYUNDAI Emily Martignago is reminding residents to change their smoke alarm batteries. 117039 Picture: JOE MASTROIANNI

Be alert to alarm change By XAVIER SMERDON WESTERN Suburbs residents are being urged to change the batteries in their smoke alarms when they change their clocks for daylight savings this Sunday. As the clocks go back an hour on Sunday, Emily Martignago from the Werribee Fire Brigade said it was important for people to remember that their smoke alarms were an even more important aspect of everyday life. “If you do have a smoke

alarm it gives you an advantage in case there ever is a fire, but only if it’s working,� Ms Martignago said. “People are pretty much unable to smell smoke when they are asleep so the chances of waking up without a smoke alarm are much lower.� Ms Martignago, who has been a volunteer firefighter for two years, recently received her qualifications that will allow her to enter burning buildings. She balances her duties as a volunteer firefighter with

her university studies and the 21-year-old said she enjoyed giving back to the community. “Basically between everything else I do I found I had a bit of spare time so I decided I should volunteer,� she said. “I love the sense of family and community that it gives me and the sense of belonging. No matter how old you are or what your background is, everyone is just equal.� Daylight savings will end on Sunday 6 April with clocks going back one hour.

Fight racism policy WYNDHAM Council has released its draft Cultural Diversity Policy and has released details of its first campaign. The Racism-It Stops With Me campaign is part of the National Anti-Racism Strategy and invites all Australians to reflect on what they can do to counter racism wherever it happens. Wyndham Council signed a support agreement to join the campaign and adopted the policy at last week’s council meeting. Councillor Gautam Gupta said residents will soon be invited to submit feedback on the policy. “Wyndham is an increasingly diverse community, with over

33.7 per cent of our residents born overseas and over 100 languages spoken within our municipality,” Cr Gupta said. “The development of this policy demonstrates Wyndham City’s commitment to social justice, equity and human rights. “It will be used to actively promote cultural diversity by supporting programs and events that foster understanding and help to celebrate the benefits of multiculturalism across the broader Wyndham community,” Cr Gupta said. “The approval of the draft strategy is the first stage of the process, with extensive community consultation to be under-

taken, before a finalised document with projects, events and strategies is adopted. “We will now take this draft policy out to relevant community groups, staff and stakeholders, before inviting the broader community to comment.” “As a multicultural community, Wyndham residents need to play their part in addressing racism. “Council will now determine specific actions, projects and events aimed at stopping racism within the community. Once these are outlined, we will be inviting residents to join us in this campaign.” For more information visit www.wyndham.vic.gov.au

Better Homes and Gardens has donated a kitchen they built when the show was filmed in Werribee. It will now be sold for charity by Werribee Men’s Shed members, above. 117124 Picture: DAMJAN JANEVSKI

Kitchen sheds new opportunities By XAVIER SMERDON THE kitchen is often the hub of activity in any house, but one Wyndham organisation is taking that to a whole new level. Last month the stars of popular lifestyle show Better Homes and Gardens visited Wyndham where they filmed an entire episode. Part of the show was shot in the Bunnings Hoppers Crossing store, where an entire kitchen was built. After the cast and crew of the show packed up and rolled out of town, the decision of what to do with the kitchen still needed to be made. Bunnings decided to donate it the Werribee Men’s Shed, a

group that provides an outlet and a network for older men to pass on their handyman skills while making new friends. Volunteers from the Men’s Shed dismantled the kitchen and will now sell it on eBay to help them buy new tools. The Head of Community Development at the Men’s Shed, James Dredge, told Star the wider community would benefit from the sale of the kitchen. “We jumped at the opportunity to take the kitchen and we had all hands on deck pulling it out so we could get it back here,” Mr Dredge said. “It’s a very, very nice kitchen. It’s extremely modern and it has a solid bamboo top and

sides,” Mr Dredge said. Mr Dredge said new tools would be bought with the money raised so the Men’s Shed could continue its work. “This will help us out a lot,” he said. “We’re helping men help themselves. Becoming a member of a Men’s Shed gives a man that safe and busy environment where he can find many of these things in an atmosphere of oldfashioned mateship. And, importantly, there is no pressure. Men can just come and have a yarn and a cuppa if that is all they’re looking for.” To place a bid on the kitchen search for Werribee Men’s Shed on eBay.

Why should you choose an QIP Accredited Dental Practice? Because they care... The accreditation process ensures every facet of the practice conforms to a range of rigid “Best Practice requirements” that focus on patient well being in a number of ways:• Our practicing dentists are highly qualified and attend regular training to ensure they are up to date with the latest techniques and technology • All staff receive regular training on the requirements of infection control set out by the governing bodies both nationally and at state level.

Dr Carmine Camerlengo said “We have always worked on the philosophy that client care was foremost in everything we do at Wyndham Dental Solutions. From the moment you make your first appointment through to caring for you and your family for generations”. Now with National Dental Association Accreditation our best practice procedures and caring methods are recognised. Additionally, languages spoken include Italian, Portuguese an Indian dialect and English which helps clients with limited English obtain a clear understanding of the procedures and processes.

• Patients are always informed on the treatment that is recommended so they can discuss the range and options of the treatment. • Our policy of having the same dentist providing the ongoing care for a client (except in emergencies) builds a foundation for knowledge of the patient. • Our systems are designed and monitored to ensure patient privacy and confidentiality • Our facilities are modern state-of-the-art • We are proud to provide Accredited Dental services to the people of Wyndham

OVER 100 school students from across Wyndham converged on the Youth Resource Centre recently for the fourth annual Youth Forum. Young people decided the agenda for the day, which included discussions on drugs and alcohol, mental health, sexuality, general wellbeing and bullying. Councillor Marie Brittan who attended the forum said these issues were discussed and a workshop was conducted by a United Nations Youth representative about how to turn ideas into actions. “In addition to over 100 students from 13 local schools and education providers, representatives from Wyndham City, Victoria Police, HeadSpace, Isis, youth foundations and Safe Schools Coalition also attended,” Cr Brittan said. “Many of the workshops gave young people an idea of how to address some of the most important issues they are facing and it provided an opportunity for Council to hear directly from young people about their issues and concerns. “By providing feedback to the relevant authorities and getting guidance on how to address these issues, our young people are learning how to take responsibility for themselves and learning how they can empower other young people to make a difference.” Cr Brittan said Wyndham’s younger residents provided an important view point of life in the municipality. “Young people aged 12-24

Our girl reaches the final By XAVIER SMERDON A HOPPERS Crossing woman has achieved her dream of making it into the finals of a national beauty pageant. Laura Bradley was one of only five beauty queens chosen from the Victorian state finals of the Miss Galaxy Pageant to head to the national stage. She will now travel to Queensland to compete against some of the most dazzling women in Australia. If she wins there she will head to the USA to represent Australia in the world championships.

Ms Bradley told Star she was shocked when her name was called as a national finalist. “I was just so super exited,” Ms Bradley said. “I think it’s the best thing that has happened to me all year. It’s going to be amazing to travel to Queensland and I’m just so excited to meet all the other girls.” Ms Bradley moved to Wyndham Vale from Ireland when she was 14-years-old and she is now living in Hoppers Crossing where she works as a dental nurse. She previously told Star that people who have never been to a pageant might be

surprised at how different it is to what they expect. “The thing that I was most surprised by was how different all the people competing are,” she said. “I expected them all to be really tall blonde girls who are just glittered out to the max, but they are just really genuine people. “They’re all different heights, nationalities and they are all just so beautiful in their own ways.” For more information on the finals of the Miss Galaxy Pageant visit www. australiagalaxypageants. Laura Bradley will represent Wyndham on the national stage. 114253 com.au

A Star Advertising Feature

Hanging out for some special time SPENDING intentional uninterrupted time with a child has infinite rewards. No matter the quantity or quality of the toys they may have, it will never compare to simply being with their parents. Child development experts suggest that these little bits of special time will add up to an increased trust and emotional/ relational bond that will enable a child to feel secure and less likely to act out negatively

for attention. These experiences will also set a foundation for the future relationship with a parent to thrive even as they grow more and more independent. Strive to have several five to 15 minutes periods of special time rather than engaging for one long block of time with toddlers and pre-schoolers. Special time provides children with some structured way of knowing when their parents are available.

It will meet the need they have to feel connected and to have a feeling of security about their place in the family. With sufficient positive interaction, they won’t have to act out negatively in order to get attention. Knowing their parent will spend time with them at planned times throughout the day will encourage better independent play as well. To get started, plan with

the child some things that they would like to do. Give them some choices if they cannot think of anything. Later, remind them about the special time you had together and that another special time is coming. Do not take special time away as punishment for

behaviour earlier in the day. Being able to count on special time with a parent provides them with support and a sense of unconditional love and connection. Great ideas of things to do with a child could include going to the library - stay for story time - baking something,

constructing something with blocks or Lego, drawing or colouring together. Another great idea is to host a play date with their favourite friend, dress up together, swimming indoor or outdoor, have a picnic outside or even on the living room floor or visit a museum or zoo.

RENOVATE WISELY IN CURRENT MARKET

ENZO RAIMONDO

WE all want our homes to be comfortable and convenient, if not the home of our dreams then at least one with the features we want and decorations to our taste. When the property market is strong, as in recent months, the temptation is to spend on improvements and renovations, assuming prices will continue to rise and money spent would be recouped if the property was sold. But, while it is always tempting to put in the latest bathroom or kitchen, it may not be the best option. Overcapitalising - spending

CEO Real Estate Institute of Victoria

money on a property which may not be recouped by an increase in its value - is a risk for both investors and owner occupiers. While most investors are wary about overspending and wise to avoid this trap, that is not always so with improvements on our own homes. Of course if you plan to stay there for many years, spending money which may not be recouped in the short term is not such an issue. But we never know what the future will hold - unexpected events may require us to sell, so it is always wise to ensure your home is not overcapitalised.

The median price of a home in regional Victoria reached a record high in the last three months of 2013, up six per cent on the same quarter in 2012. t was encouraging news, but REIV predicts a slowing in property prices later this year, so it is not the time for major renovations unless you can be sure they will boost the property’s value to cover their cost and hopefully, make a profit. If you are contemplating renovations, it’s important to know your property’s current value and what it would be worth with that work completed. A good yardstick is

Within any area, the pool of buyers is only so large, and if your property is well above the median price - even if it is superior to many homes the same size - it may take longer to sell. Consult a real estate agent for an appraisal of your home and ask his or her advice about your plans would they be a wise move, would you get that money back if you sold? If the answer is no, the time, stress and cost of renovating are best avoided.

F od bytes As always, if you have any recipes, tips or other info you’d like to share, email me at sarah@ howdypartnersmedia.com.au

F B : How would you rate your cooking skills? S T : Average, but I try hard I like to experiment. F B : What is your signature dish? S T : Lasagne. It’s my kids’ favourite. F B : If you could only have one more meal, what would it be? S T : Oysters Kirkpatrick, lobster and Bombe Alaska . F B : What is your favourite food? S T : I love seafood and steak. F B : What is your favourite drink? S T : Beer and champagne. Not in the same glass, though. F B : Which five people would you most like to invite to dinner? S T : Robert Redford has always been my favourite movie star. Brad Johnson: his smile would brighten up any dinner. Jimmy Barnes could sing to us all. Ted Whitten – I’d love to hear his football stories, he would have us all laughing. My granny. My family and I came to Australia in 1971 from Ireland, so I grew up with no relatives. I only saw them when we went back for holidays. F B : Do you have a kitchen tip for us? S T : Clean as you go because the kids won’t do it and there’s nothing worse than a messy kitchen after a good meal.

Fritters with a twist As a teenager growing up in regional Victoria in the eighties, I remember the most sophisticated thing you could do on a Saturday night was go out for dinner at the local Chinese restaurant. My brother and I would spin the Lazy Susan and fiddle with the plastic chopsticks while my parents ordered a selection of sweet and sour pork, lemon chicken and beef in black bean sauce. And we ALWAYS finished off the meal with our all-time favourite – a speciality of Chinese restaurants the world over: Banana fritters and ice cream. This week’s recipe is a delicious twist on the battered variety. Instead of batter, you use spring roll wrappers. They’re so easy to make and you can prepare them ahead of time. I’ve also seen a variation on this recipe, where you sprinkle a few choc chips on the banana pieces before wrapping, instead of brown sugar. Your choice!

BANANA SPRING ROLLS 2 bananas 8 frozen spring roll wrappers, thawed 2 tablespoons brown sugar Vanilla ice cream, to serve Peel the bananas and halve them lengthwise, then cut each piece in half again. This will give you eight pieces. Fill a deep fryer or large “I don’t saucepan 1/3 full with oil and heat like foo arr d over a medium heat to 170 degrees is anged.

Repeat with remaining wrappers, banana and brown sugar. Fry banana spring rolls for four minutes or until evenly browned all over. Remove with slotted spoon, drain on paper towels and serve with WESTPOINT ice cream. Good luck stopping at one. Source: That’s Life. Food Bytes proudly sponsored by Westpoint Ford

With Dr Kristi of Hoppers Crossing Vet Clinic and Hospital

HOPPERS CROSSING VETERINARY CLINIC & HOSPITAL

This is Sheldon the standard poodle puppy who had lovely clean ears at his check-up at our clinic.

Listen in to ear problems ONE of the medical conditions we see on a daily basis at our vet clinic is a dog with an ear problem. The pet usually presents with a sore or smelly ear which is caused by an infection. Occasionally this may progress to a large swollen ear flap known as an aural haematoma. Ear infections are caused by organisms such as ear mites, bacteria or yeast growing in the ear or by a foreign object such as a grass seed lodged down the ear canal. Your vet will need to exam-

ine down the ear canal with an otoscope and take samples to look at under a microscope to make a diagnosis. Prescription ear drops and sometimes oral medications may be needed to properly clear an infection. Ear cleaners which remove wax and dirt build up may be used to prevent the ear infection from returning in the future. Underlying skin allergies may be the cause of an ear infection returning as could incomplete medical treatment. An aural haematoma is a big

bruise between the cartilage and skin of the ear flap. It is often associated with vigorous head shaking, possibly due to an ear infection, trauma or allergies. Surgery under anaesthesia to repair the ear is usually required as well as medications to prevent pain and infection. Untreated haematomas may lead to a deformed or cauliflower-type appearance to the ear. Recurring ear disease can be frustrating for pets, owners and their vets so a thorough investigation and course of treatment is essential.

and then set up a fundraising page for a chance to win an exciting prize from major Victorian sponsor Eastside Mitsubishi. Human and four legged fashionistas looking for something special to wear on the day can also support the Million Paws Walk by purchasing something from the 2014 range of merchandise for people and dogs either online or at the event.

PETS PLACE EPPING

Meet Chester. Chester wants to be friends with everyone – he’s a sociable fella . Though he’d like to go to a quiet home, Chester would love to spend lots of time inside with his family. Chester is best suited to a home with no other pets. He likes to keep in shape, and enjoys daily walks. While Chester has had some basic training, he could benefit from brushing up on his manners. Beneath Chester’s soft and fluffy exterior is a big heart – a heart with a murmur. He needs an owner that will ensure he can continue to receive the necessary veterinary care for this condition. Find out more via: www.rspcavic. org / adoption and type CHESTER in ‘keywords’ box.

Meet Lizzie. She’s a shy puss but is waiting to blossom in the right home. Lizzie loves having toys and a nice scratching post to play around with. She’d be suited to living with secondary age children, and maybe even a friendly, desexed male cat. Lizzie is looking forward to an indoor lifestyle in her new home, to protect her gorgeous light features from the sun. Find out more via: www.rspcavic. org / adoption and type LIZZIE in ‘keywords’ box.

From April 2014 – May 2014, Melbourne Water is undertaking a control program at Truganina Swamp to reduce the number of rabbits. This is part of our commitment to responsible land management, biodiversity conservation and continued good amenity for our neighbours.

The Growth Areas Authority (now known as the Metropolitan Planning Authority, MPA), in consultation with the Wyndham City Council, Government agencies and service authorities has prepared a draft Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) for development of a new precinct known as Tarneit North. The plan applies to the area bounded by Boundary Road to the north, Derrimut Road to the east, Leakes Road to the south and Davis Road to the West. Amendment C188 also includes six concurrent planning permits proposing residential subdivision for approximately 3,000 lots, sets aside land for parks, roads and three future education facilities. Tarneit North PSP envisions the development of a new residential community of about 9,900 new homes, a town centre, schools, community and sports facilities, local parks and new road infrastructure. The PSP, planning permits and associated documents are now available for community consultation. Pending resolution of any matters raised through the consultation, the MPA intends to recommend that the Minister for Planning approve the plans, planning permits and associated documents as planning scheme Amendment C188 to the Wyndham Planning Scheme. You may inspect the plans for Tarneit North PSP, planning permits and supporting

The Jets kept up with Sandringham for threeand-a-half quarters at Craigieburn’s Highgate Reserve, but the Dragons managed to kick clear late in the piece to come away with a solid 46-point win. A low-scoring first half had Sandringham in front by a kick at the main break and as the game broke open in the third stanza, it was the Dragons who managed to convert on the scoreboard. By three-quarter time the margin was out to 22 but the Jets clawed their way back to peg it down to single figures in the final term. However, the Dragons’ seven goals to the Jets’ three sealed the result, handing the latter its second loss in as many games. Jets coach Torin Baker said he was pleased to see his side improve its attack on the footy after going down to the Cannons in round one - but will be hoping his forward line can make more of its opportunities count in coming weeks. Brenton Payne and Jayden Laverde each combined for four of the Jets’ eight goals on the day (two goals each). Billy Myers, Hayden Bray, Liam Duggan and Brandon Coletta each kicked a goal of their own. Draft prospects Corey Ellis, Dillon Viojo and Connor Menadue were among the Jets’ best on the day, while defender Harley ArmstrongWeston also drew praise from his coach for a solid display down back. The Jets will have a chance to rectify their 0-2 start this Sunday away to the Oakleigh Chargers before hosting the Northern Territory at Williamstown’s Burbank’s Oval in round four. The Jets sit 12th on the table and join the Gippsland Power, Bendigo Pioneers, North Ballarat Rebels and Eastern Ranges as the TAC Cup’s remaining winless clubs.

The top Dogs By LIAM TWOMEY FOOTSCRAY Edgewater saved its best for last in the Victorian Premier Cricket final. The Bulldogs dominated Essendon for two and a half days before putting the Bombers out of their misery before lunch on Sunday. In arguably its strongest showing of the season, Footscray won by a staggering 359 runs, capping off a truly amazing season. Almost everything went according to plan for the Bulldogs after they won the toss and batted first on day one. Despite the early wicket of Anthony Barton, the Footscray batting line-up always looked in control with some big scores up for grabs. Travis Dean showed why he is

going to be pushing for selection in the Victorian state team in years to come, blasting a brilliant 138. Dean’s knock came off 247 balls and included 18 boundaries. He also combined for a 158 run stand with wicket-keeper Dylan Kight who made 59. In any other match, 138 would normally be enough to secure man of the match honours. However, they were saved for middle order batsman Shanuka Dissanayaka, who was able to take Footscray from a strong position to an unbeatable one. Dissanayaka hit an incredible 175 not out, sending the bowling attack to all parts of the Junction Oval. His innings came off 258 balls

and included 23 boundaries. Everything was going right for Footscray with lower order batsmen Guy Walker (37), Hamish WinterIrving (43) and Jake Haberfield (24) adding to the total. Footscray captain Dean Russ eventually declared his side’s innings with the score at 8/526 after 157 overs. An impossible chase on paper was made even harder by a rampaging Haberfield who took the new ball. The gun quick dismissed Aaron Shellie just four balls into the innings. John Hastings then got in on the act, removing Ben MacRae for six. With Essendon at 2/14 there was

more pain on the way as Haberfield returned to knock over Solomon Mire for just one. Aaron Ayre and Shane McNamara followed soon after and with the score at 5/55, any hope of an unlikely victory was dashed. Footscray went on to claim the final wicket with the score at 167 off 43.1 overs. Haberfield was again the star with the ball, taking 6/58. The remaining wickets were shared by Hastings, Winter-Irving and Michael Kelly. For Essendon, Clinton McKay top scored for the innings with 35. The flag is Footscray’s second in the club’s history, the first since the 1979/80 season.

Dillon Viojo was one of the Western Jets’ better players on Sunday. 105187 Picture: DAMIAN VISENTINI

By LIAM TWOMEY WERRIBEE has named an 11man leadership group for the 2014 VFL season. New coach John Lamont made the announcement at the club’s season launch last week. The group will be made up of Jarred Moore, Ben Warren, Scott Sherlock, Jarrod Mather, Ben Speight, Michael Sodomaco, Sam Wormald, Nathan Laracy, Addam Maric, Trent Shinners and Jake Wilson. “I have just been so pleased with the amount of ownership and buy-in that these blokes have had,” Lamont said. “Seven or eight of them were in the leadership group last year so they have been through a process where their peers voted for them. They were returning and we did a vote from the playing group and added some new ones in. “I think it will accelerate their development as leaders and hopefully increase their enjoyment.” As part of the move, Werribee will have a rotating captain throughout the season. Despite being in his first year at Werribee, Lamont has previously worked with a number of the Tigers’ players through the club’s alignment with North Melbourne. “In my whole experience in Victoria I have had JL (Lamont) looking over my shoulder,” former Kangaroo Warren said. “When I found out he was the coach it was obviously exciting. “It has also been interesting to see how he has developed. I’ve never known JL as the head of a team, I’ve only known him as sticking to the structures at North Melbourne and what the AFL alignment gives you. “It has been very interesting to see that whole process and the whole playing group have

team has what it takes to make an impact at the business end of the season. “If we get into the finals, I’ll back them right now that they will win at least one final,” he said. “The coaches and I will provide them with that direction, hopefully there is enough satisfaction along the way that they have made finals and then we put it all on the line and win one.

League’s season at its best of change starts West in interleague In the

Doghouse KEVIN HILLIER

By LIAM TWOMEY

GREAT to see the WRFL interleague side victorious over the Southern Football League last Saturday at Princess Park. It is over a decade since the last WRFL senior interleague and I hope our clubs have grown up enough to accept the concept into the future. I know club success is important, but if we all believe that our competition is getting better (and it is) let’s continue to embrace this pre-season championship, and get the WRFL up the ladder of suburban comps. Well done to Brett Jacobs and his coaching staff, the players and everyone involved on the day and in the lead-up. WRFL football operations manager David Newton deserves special mention for his contribution, as does Steve Thom the chairman of selectors. The players enjoyed the experience and deserve full recognition as they did it for the love of the jumper and nothing else. Altona’s Lee Spiteri was awarded the medal for best on ground. Well done to all who made our competition win and look good. Isn’t it nice to have a positive outcome? Let’s get the seniors involved in the junior interleague now to cement the connection for years to come. I want the WRFL juniors to look up to the Tim Jenkins, Brad Juliers and Lee Spiteris of the world in the future. They deserve that, and so does our competition.

A whole season’s work came down to one point in last year’s WRFL Division One competition. 105750 Picture: DAMIAN VISENTINI enough financial resources to do that. Some of those clubs really need some on-the-spot help. “It is going to take time and money to do that but we need to find a way to achieve that and raise the funds to do it. “We are very confident that we will keep all of the clubs we have got and we will be able to develop

some new ones as well.” Building on the expanding senior competition, the WRFL is also enjoying healthy growth in the juniors. The league is expecting at least six new junior teams to compete in the competition this season. Its only area of concern is the under-18 grade, which had just 14 teams last year.

“The under-18s will be the challenge,” Tregear said. “We were down to 14 teams last year and we are hoping for 16 or 17 this year. We really need to have about 24. “It took a dive last year so it is up one year down the next. It’s not enough to say it is a trend. I think it creates a challenge for everybody.”

West on rise in league clash of champions By LIAM TWOMEY THE Western Region Football League celebrated its return to interleague football with an impressive 37-point win on Saturday. Taking on the Southern Football League at Visy Park, the WRFL side looked in complete control throughout the contest and led at every change. Matthew Dean, Kwame McHarg and captain Jason Cloke were all among the best players, while Lee Spiteri was presented with the medal for the most valuable player. WRFL coach Brett Jacobs was rapt with his side’s performance. “We weren’t expecting a six-goal win, that’s for sure,” he said. “At the start we said 10 to 12 goals would probably win it so we thought it would be a low scoring game. We put a big emphasis on pressure. Being a preseason format we were sure that would be the best way to go and ... it worked for us.” Despite still coaching his own team (Sunshine), Jacobs said he and his coaching group found time to scout the SFL before the match. “We did a bit of work on the footy forums, Big Footy and what not,” he said.

“We did as much research as we could and looked at club websites and all that sort of stuff. We got some valuable information. I shouted one of my old mates who played in the league a lunch earlier this week and got a bit of juice out of him so it was all beneficial.” After starting the interleague format ranked number five, the WRFL now jumps to number four and will take on the Eastern Football League next season. The winner of that match will earn the right to play for the number one ranking the following year. “We were very happy with the process,” Jacobs said. “The majority of the players in the league made themselves available. We had a good squad to choose from. We had some great support. Steve Thom has been awesome through the whole process. Tymmsy (assistant coach Aaron Tymms) and Freez (assistant coach Aaron Freeland) have been terrific for me. “I think you will find a lot more players will put their hand up to participate next year. We hope it stays on for a few more years. I am a big fan of it and think it is fantastic.”

THIS weekend sees the start of the WRFL season with St Albans hosting Deer Park in the season opener on Friday night under lights at Kings Park Reserve. At the WRFL season launch I was MC and I was taken by the onstage speech of Deer Park president Mark McGoldrick. He spoke of the club’s commitment to juniors and the community but then said when it comes to senior footy that it’s “business - it is about winning flags”. That is the first time I have heard that from Mark, and I have no problem with that, I am just glad that he has put it out there in those terms. I have been receiving emails from a lot of people in regards to my comments on money in local football. I want to finish this debate by saying the following - I don’t care what any club pays their players, local footy has changed, I don’t like the influence of money, but I understand it is a reality. My concern is that clubs forget their juniors in the pursuit of a flag and if that happens, then we all lose. Happy to hear your thoughts. I AM disgusted that two cricket wickets were doctored in the finals this year. The West Newport one really riles me, and the Werribee CC one is just good enough. Clearly the people involved in both cases are a vigilante group, not club people, who have decided to fix the result of a game. That is pathetic. Have I played with blokes who might be capable of this kind of action? I don’t think so. I played in both winning and losing grand finals and I have both happy and sad memories of both, and I cherish both. That is sport. The boofheads involved in both of these incidents just don’t get it and we all need to get these people out of our lives. I hope we track them down and kick them out of our clubs and competitions. YOU can hear the coverage of the WRFL this Saturday on 88.9 WYN FM from 1.30pm from Merv Hughes Oval with the Match of the Day between Parkside and Manor Lakes. Steve Thom and I are in our 12th year and we are both as keen as day one. We have a new team working with us this year who we hope will kick the same goals as before.

THE 2014 Western Region Football League season is shaping up as one of the most interesting in the league’s history. As well as the battle for top honours in Division One, there are a number of sub-plots set to play out throughout the season. Across Divisions One and Two, 17 new coaches will take the reins in round one. After round 13, the bottom six teams in Division Two will make up the newly created Division Three. For the second successive year, the WRFL will also have a brand new club with the Tarneit Titans making their debut. However, league CEO Bob Tregear isn’t taking his eyes off the future. After a lot of hard work, he and his board have got the league going upwards at a rate of knots and they are keen to continue the trend. One of their key goals during the next few years is to continue expanding the league with Tregear nominating a number of possible locations for new clubs. “It (the formation of new clubs) will happen in the new development areas,” Tregear said. “In Wyndham it will be places like Williams Landing and Truganina where there are new developments. We are also looking further north and, as the Melton corridor develops south, we will also be looking to develop clubs there.” However, the league is making sure it isn’t focusing on expansion to the detriment of its current clubs. Tregear added that finding a way to help struggling clubs is a key priority. “We are talking to AFL Victoria about how to do that at the moment,” Tregear said. “It is really a matter of having

Top kickboxer beats all odds By LIAM TWOMEY SIMON Coutsouvelis had no intention of being a world-beater. When he first walked through the doors of the Werribee Kickboxing gym, it was just about improving his fitness. What he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count on was building a partnership with one of the Western Suburbsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; legendary kick-boxing trainers, Ange Pagnoccolo. Over the past seven years, the pair have fought tooth and nail to take Coutsouvelis all the way to the top. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took eight months from the moment I started to the moment I stepped in the ring,â&#x20AC;? Coutsouvelis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I trained every single day for eight months. I was there every night and just loved it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ange has been amazing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone from knowing nothing and he has shown me everything.â&#x20AC;? Pagnoccolo said he gave Coutsouvelis no hope of getting in the ring when he first came across him, but was rapt to see the progress his star pupil had made. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simon came to me about six or seven years ago,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first two weeks he trained with me he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;I want to get in the ring.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I said to my partner, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;no way this kid is going to get into the ring. No way at allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? Pagnoccolo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After a few months of training, he never missed a night and then I started saying, this guy has got to get in the ring. He deserves to get in the ring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even since that first night, he has just been absolutely amazing.â&#x20AC;? The rise from rookie to champion for Coutsouvelis has seen him claim both Victorian and Australian titles. His first Victorian Title came in 2007 while his most recent Australian Title (one of three) was earlier this year. As well as working with Pagnoccolo, Coutsouvelis is also sponsored by Platinum Fitness. Despite seeming a natural in the ring from the moment he started, Coutsouvelis, who fights in the 66kg category, said the transition from training to fighting had been a tough one to make. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took a lot to get used to,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even now I consider myself to be a pretty awkward fighter. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not your standard fighter to watch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was very weird and very daunting at the start. The fact

you cop a hit and actually hitting someone as well, that is really not in my nature.â&#x20AC;? There are no plans to slow down for Coutsouvelis, who will compete in Adelaide next month. A win for the Hoppers Crossing resident could open the door to a number of possible fights both in Australia and overseas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Simon can go all the way and become a world champion,â&#x20AC;? Pagnoccolo said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has already got three

Australian titles and he just won the K1 Welter Weight Title. For someone who I thought was never going to fight, the dedication he has to the sport is amazing. That commitment and work ethic is why he is where he is now.â&#x20AC;? As well as training Coutsouvelis, Pagnoccolo is still running training sessions out of his Loop Street base. He encouraged anyone interested in taking up kick-boxing to stop by for a class.

Swag of medals for Western Athletes IT IS easy to get the feeling Western Athletics members enjoy a bit of gold. Across three different championships last month, the club was able to dominate en route to an impressive medal tally. At the Victorian Masters Championships, 11 Western Athletics team members combined for 15 gold medals, nine silver medals and four bronze medals. At the Australian Masters

Championships, two competitors combined for five gold medals, one silver medal and one bronze medal. One of the standout individual performances came from Allan Cook who won seven gold medals and one silver medal from the two Masters events. Not done with yet, Western Athletics also performed well at the Australian Junior Track and Field Championships, with 25 competitors taking home

one gold medal, one silver medal and three bronze medals. There were also 19 top ten finishes throughout the event. The gold medal was won by Julia Bourke, who established herself as a future national representative by taking out top honours in the Under 17 Girls shot-put. What makes the win even more impressive is that Bourke has only competed in athletics for one year.

Key grip on top spot By LIAM TWOMEY CITY West Falcons remain undefeated and on top of the Victorian Netball League ladder after another crushing win last week. The Falcons smashed the Southern Saints by 19 goals, 53-34. From the word go it was a dominating City West outfit that hit the court as the margin was quickly out to seven by the first break. From there, the Falcons continued to control the game and extended the lead across the next three quarters. Alice Teague-Neeld was incredibly accurate around goals for City West,

shooting at 96 per cent throughout the night. Teague-Neeld finished with 20 goals from her 21 attempts while fellow shooters Kathleen Knott and Julia Woolley finished with 23 and 10 goals respectively. In total, City West had 20 more attempts on goal for the match. The result maintains the Falcons’ one game lead over Boroondara Genesis on the VNL ladder. In other results, VU Western Lightning overcame a tough first quarter to get the better of Fed Uni Ballarat Pride by 19 goals, 61-42. Despite being winless and on the bottom of the ladder, the Pride fought hard

during the first quarter, keeping the deficit to just two at the break. However, the longer the match went the more VU began to take control as the margin spiked. Of the Lightning’s 61 goals, Kate Thompson shot 45. After a slow start to the year, VU is now a game clear inside the top four, occupying fourth spot on the ladder. When round eight gets underway this week, the two Western Suburbs clubs will clash at the State Netball and Hockey Centre. The pair last met in round one and on that occasion it was an easy win for the Falcons.
