“BITTERLY disappointing” is how principals are describing a budget black hole for Greater Dandenong schools. Lyndhurst MP Martin Pakula said “not a single cent, let alone a dollar” had been allocated to schools in the electorate in the 2014’15 State Budget. “The community has been deceived,” Chandler Park Primary principal Peter Paul said last week. The Keysborough school has been waiting for funding to complete a merger with Maralinga Primary started five years ago. “We cannot simply continue the way we are,” he said. “We’re running across both campuses. We try to operate as one school. We are one school. “That places a strain on planning. That places a strain on time. “It’s a situation that beggars belief.” Mr Paul said the school needed $5.7 million to add more classrooms and art room, library and administration facilities. “That means we would bring every child onto the Chandler campus,” he said. “They would relinquish the Maralinga site so the government gets the site back. “I think one would balance the other quite well.” Mr Paul has since met with Education Minister Martin Dixon at the school, to no avail. “Our bid to complete the school has gone on the cutting room floor,” he said. “We’ve had enough.” The school board is due to meet tomorrow night (Tuesday) to decide a course of action.

Keysborough College principal Heather Lindsay said the school was waiting on about $30 million to complete a redevelopment that also started five years ago. “We were a school that formed after four schools merged,” she said. “We’ve had virtually half of our finding. We’ve completed half the school. “We’re a school of contrast we have fantastic new buildings and then we have really poor older buildings.” Ms Lindsay said the two campuses had rooms that leaked, lacked natural light, were draughty and needed new cabling. “They’re not really fit for teaching in, and they need replacing,” she said. Dandenong MP John Pandazopoulos was disappointed there was no funding for stage four of Dandenong High School’s redevelopment. “The school’s been hoping for funding for the last two budgets,” he said. He said most school funding was going to growth corridors or marginal seats. “They can find money like the $18 million for a school in Frankston which, as the Member for Frankston said, did not even know it was getting the funding and did not ask for it,” he said. A spokeswoman for Mr Dixon said the budget delivered $1.6 billion for education as well as $500 million to build 12 new schools and upgrade more than 70 existing schools. “Labor’s so-called Victorian Schools Plan left us a $420 million school maintenance backlog which we are now having to fix,” he said.

STATE BUDGET 2014

Local jobs chance lost DANDENONG MP John Pandazopoulos has accused the government of missing the chance to maximise local jobs and content on the Cranbourne-Pakenham rail upgrade project. He said the government should have insisted the project’s Metro Trains-led private consortium be stationed in Dandenong, rather than leasing an office in Collins Street, Melbourne. “One would have thought that if the consortium had a project in the area it would try to maximise local jobs in the region, and as part of maximising local jobs in the region would provide opportunities for local content,” Mr Pandazopoulos told State Parliament on Tuesday. “It is where the locals expect those offices to be and where that workforce will be. “It would also allow access to the project by local industry, of which Dandenong has a significant part, and enable it to benefit from this project.” The State Government did not respond by deadline. – Cam Lucadou-Wells

$2b rail plan queried $305m boosts By CAM LUCADOU-WELLS

CRITICS are pondering the value of a $2 billion-plus upgrade of the overcrowded Dandenong rail corridor – funded under a public-private partnership and which will be detached from the City Loop. The State Government announced in its 2014-’15 budget last week the project would finish in five years. According to its budget papers, the State Government has allocated just $56 million over four years towards the project, estimated to increase the corridor’s capacity by 30 per cent at a cost of $2-2.5 billion. Reports suggest the involvement of a private consortium, which includes Metro Trains, might bloat the project’s real cost to $5 billion. The repayments are reportedly up to $1 million a day for the next 20 years. Another reported aspect of the PPP is developers being handed land at grade separation sites. Opposition Public Transport spokeswoman Jill Hennessy said the government appeared to have “ditched proper planning process in a desperate bid for votes”. “There are reports that Denis Napthine is planning to spend billions of taxpayer dollars under a veil of secrecy and with no regard for the integrity of the process.” Public Transport Users Association president Dr Tony Morton said the project had

Commuters on the Dandenong line will no longer be able to get off at City Loop stations if government plans proceed. “substantial value” for the Dandenong corridor despite its delay and his concerns about the PPP agreement. “The return on public investment would be even greater if it were taken on as a public project with conventional debt financing to reduce the ultimate bill to the taxpayer. “It basically hands over planning responsibility to the private sector, with the public interest a subsidiary consideration. “This means the planning may not adequately consider elements like good bus interchanges at stations, that serve the public interest but do not assure a financial return to the project proponents.

“The rail corridor’s trains are Melbourne’s most congested. In a PTV passenger load report, 12 peak services a day were overcrowded beyond benchmark levels. About 25 per cent of peaktime passengers were caught on these overcrowded services. Professor Graham Currie of Monash University’s Institute of Transport Studies said congestion would get worse until the upgrade was finished in 2019. He said Metro Trains’ PPP in Hong Kong had worked well but it was unclear what the “real detail” of the Victorian PPP could be. “Metro Trains (in Hong Kong) makes money because it

develops the property around the station. “A key question is whether the community here is happy to give this land away to developers.” Critics have also focused on the impact of the government’s Melbourne Rail Link proposal. Under the plan, the Dandenong corridor’s commuters would miss the City Loop and be offloaded at Southern Cross station on the furthest side of the CBD. Dandenong ALP state candidate Gabrielle Williams said: “If you live in or around Dandenong and you want to get to Parliament, Melbourne Central or Flagstaff, you will always have to change trains at Richmond to catch a City Loop service. “This will add to commute times and congestion.” Sitting Dandenong MP John Pandazopoulos told Parliament last Thursday: “We are going to spend all of this money not to make it easier on everyone but to make it harder on the people who use that rail corridor.” The government has announced it is entering “exclusive negotiations” with the private consortium, hoping to finalise an agreement by late this year subject to “a positive value for money outcome”. The project includes 25 new trains, high-capacity signalling and the removal of at least four level crossings. The State Government did not respond to the Journal’s questions before deadline.

students By CAM LUCADOU-WELLS A SUPPORT program for students with disabilities has been boosted by $305 million over the next four years but may not stop students “falling through the cracks”, principals and parents say. The State Government announced in last week’s budget that the Program for Students with Disabilities would get a $28.9 million injection and the Student Disabilities Transport Program $5 million in 2014-’15. The boost extends help to 1900 more students under the PSD and 350 more under the SDTP. John Mooney, principal of the Dandenong North-based Emerson School, said he “applauded the recognition for people with disabilities”. He said the specialist school still needed a “wider ambit” to stop students “falling through the cracks”. “I get 4-5 calls a day from parents asking for help,” he said. “One of my great challenges with the disabilitiy field is how hard it is to get into our school with all the red-tape and paperwork.

Square needs a name

STATE BUDGET 2014

GREATER Dandenong’s new public square needs a name. The space at the new civic centre on the corner of Lonsdale and Walker streets, Dandenong, is designed for people to come together, lounge, celebrate and play in. It’s been dubbed the Federation Square of the south east, mostly for the seven-metre wide digital screen that will host locally-produced film content as well as shared content from further afield. The square will accommodate large-scale outdoor events, offer smaller spaces to sit and relax and become a focal point for community events and celebrations. The City of Greater Dandenong is looking for an appropriate and relevant name, and has invited public suggestions. Submissions close 30 June. Submitted names will be shortlisted, advertised and the selected name will be announced in 2015. Visit www.greaterdandenong.com for full details and to make a submission.

$43m for cemeteries By CASEY NEILL CEMETERIES in Springvale and Bangholme will share more than $43 million from the State Budget announced last week. Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (SMCT) manages Springvale Botanical Cemetery and Bunurong Memorial Park. CEO Jonathan Tribe said the projects would have positive employment and wider community benefits. The trust approved a $41.7 million master plan for Bunurong two

years ago that included new administration, chapel and function facilities, water features and park-like lawn areas. The State Government allocated $36 million in its 2014-’15 Budget to the plan, in addition to a previous $2.8 million investment. The project needs another $300,000 and is expected to be completed in late 2015. The memorial park was established in 1995, spans 101 hectares and offers burial, cremation, memorial and mausoleum options.

“These are significant investments focused on meeting the needs of our communities in future years,” Mr Tribe said. “As well as the significant community benefits these magnificent properties present, they also facilitate important local employment opportunities.” This budget included $7.6 million for the central precinct at Springvale, on top of $12 million allocated last financial year. The $19.6 million project is expected to be completed by August

and includes seven new function rooms, a café, administration building, enhanced client and employee amenities and a customer service facility. “We have been delighted with the building progress which is well on track and my team is really looking forward to the move into the new facility,” Mr Tribe said. The SMCT Perpetual Maintenance Reserve generated the funding for the projects. The reserve ensures funds are set aside for the trust to maintain the cemeteries under its care for future generations.

Hope for the future in budget, says CEO GREATER Dandenong wasn’t a big winner in last week’s State Budget, but the future is looking bright. The municipality’s CEO John Bennie said the finer details of the funding announced for the 2014-’15 financial year were still to come, but the city had missed out in some areas. Level crossing removal was one area he was hoping to see cash for, but he noted there was funding to plan and investigate removing at least three in Noble Park. “Which pleases us, but we’re looking for the commitment to implement,” he said. “We go into these processes with a lot of optimism and a lot of expectation but are also realistic and need to understand that some things can’t

always be satisfied and responded to. “Our wishes and aspirations have not been satisfied, but the government is putting itself in a position to fund them during this or future financial years. “We see that as a positive.” Mr Bennie said the State Government had generated a $900 million budget surplus. “When a state government is in a strong financial position it’s much better placed to fund infrastructure going into the future,” he said. “The buoyancy of the state economy would assist business growth and development potential. “Greater Dandenong stands to benefit from anything that would improve business growth and economic growth in this region.” Mr Bennie said the council was

hoping for money for the Dandenong West, Dandenong Park and Springvale Rise kindergartens, and had put aside cash to co-fund proposed projects. “We do note that money has been allocated for kinder upgrades, and we’re hopeful Greater Dandenong kinders might be recipients of some of that,” he said. Among more definitive budget wins for the municipality, Mr Bennie said, was the $38 million allocated to the western section of the Dingley Bypass, from Westall Road through to Warragul Road. “That would then complete that western section and facilitate travel from South Road and Warragul Road in Moorabbin right through to the South Gippsland Highway,” he said. “We then only need, and would

look for the final bit, between the South Gippsland Highway and Monash Freeway to be completed. “That completes a really important east-west connection.” He said a reduction in payroll tax would benefit the region’s business community. “They need all the support they could possibly get,” he said. And the budget included additional funding to combat family violence. “We would be hopeful that some of this funding might be available, if not to this council then to this region,” he said. Mr Bennie said the PakenhamCranbourne railway line project would assist Greater Dandenong commuters and those travelling into the municipality for work.

Community Dawn dances in to Neighbourhood Watch I HAVE known Dawn Vernon for many, many years. I first met Dawn when I used to write stories about her dance school in Noble Park for the Journal. Dawn is one of the true treasures of the Great Dandenong community. As well as raising four children with her husband Reg, and running her own business for decades, Dawn has been the driving force behind Neighbourhood Watch Greater Dandenong. Dawn works tirelessly promoting safety in the community, a role I know our local police value highly. For example last Thursday night Dawn was at Dandenong Railway Station with members of Victoria Police highlighting to commuters the dangers of leaving their cars unlocked. Dawn is president and Reg runs the group’s website. Councillor Matthew Kirwan is secretary.

MY VOICE A MOMENT WITH

MARG STORK Thirty years ago Dawn was among a handful of people who doorknocked in the community to get Neighbourhood Watch off the ground in Noble Park. She took over as president when the group looked like it might fold. “I’d spent all those cold nights collecting money, I wasn’t going to let it fold,” she laughed. Neighbourhood Watch Greater Dandenong desperately needs more volunteers. Dawn said a lot of members were either moving out of the area or were

getting older and couldn’t help as much as they once did. “All I need is people to volunteer a couple of hours a year if that’s all they can spare at events like this one tonight at the station,” explained Dawn. “When we are asked by the police or the council to help highlight a safety issue, letter drop or hand out leaflets, that’s when I need helpers. “If you are retired and want to volunteer in the community and, particlulary if you love walking, I’d love you to join us. “We’ve started having dine-outs together, where we gather for a meal. People have started to become friends.” Dawn would also love to hear from anyone handy with a computer. “Reg and I do our best, but anyone with computer skills would be a help.” Dawn has 20 volunteers on her list at present, but numbers are dwindling.

The next Neighbourhood Watch public forum will be held on Wednesday 21 May with guest speaker Sergeant Pat Green. Police attend all forums, which are held throughout year. Last week Dawn trialled a day forum at St Gerard’s, so that people who are unable to get out at night could attend. “The role of Neigthbourhood Watch is to give people confidence about their personal safety. I have lived in Noble Park for 67 years and I am very passionate about it. “The area has changed a lot and a whole lot of different cultures have come in. We want to embrace that and we want them to get involved as well.” Anyone interested in joining Neighbourhood Watch can contact Dawn on 0407 325 030. Dawn and Reg desperately need storage for the Neighbourhood Watch trailer, which is currently exposed to

the weather in the Vernons’ backyard. TALENT QUEST The success of the television show Australia’s Got Talent has spawned a local spin-off, Africa’s Got Talent. Auditions will be held at The Castle on 13 May between 4pm and 8.30pm. Organisers have put a call out for performers of African descent to get up on stage and showcase their talents. Doesn’t matter if you sing, act, dance, have a comedy routine, perform poetry or play an instrument, everyone is welcome. The finals will be held at the Fitzroy Town Hall on 24 May in front of judges of the calibre of Deni Hines, who will also perform, Stephanie Kabanyana and Lamine Sonko. This is a wonderful initiative to harness the energy of Greater Dandenong’s young people. For more information go to www.facebook.com/ pages/Africas-Got-Talent

LOOKING BACK 100 years ago 14 May 1914 Jottings from my Notebook The motor hog has developed a new “turn,” which has made the proprietors of good country hotels very wroth - and with very good reason, too. The game seems to be played in the following style: Eight or nine people roll up to the hotel door in a finely-fitted car laden with rugs galore. Half the occupants are ladies, and afternoon tea is desired for the swell-dressed crowd. It is served at one shilling per nob, and, while the proprietor goes out and gives orders to clear the dirty dishes away, the “beauties and the beasts”

For the site of the new supermarket, Woolworths have purchased 1 and ½ acres of land at the corner of McCrae and Clow sts., for a figure in excess of £150,000.

Mr Keith Allison, of Keith Allison Pty. Ltd., Estate Agents, 37 Walker St., Dandenong, who negotiated the sale, said today he expected work on the project to start soon, probably early in August. Mr Allison said Woolworths intended to erect a modern supermarket of a design not previously used by the company in Victoria.

DANDENONG JOURNAL

Woman in ice axe attack By CAM LUCADOU-WELLS A WOMAN who had heavily used ice and other drugs was spared conviction for allegedly striking a former housemate with a short-handled axe in Dandenong. The woman allegedly raised the axe from her handbag when the victim returned to the Vizard Street house to collect her own property on 21 January 2013, prosecutor Marie Eales told Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on Monday. The accused denied police claims that she struck the victim’s head with the axe. Her version was she raised the axe in a threatening manner and swung it at the victim’s head. The victim was also punched, kicked and had her hair pulled, Leading Senior Constable Eales said. The accused had been taking a lot of drugs, including ice and marijuana, at the time, her lawyer told the court. Her drug-taking started after being sexually assaulted as a 17-year-old, the court heard. She had been subsequently diagnosed with post-traumatic stress and depression. Since the axe incident, the accused was undergoing drug treatment, had undertaken a certificate two nursing course and was pregnant to her live-in partner. Her mother told the court: “I’ve got my daughter back again.” Magistrate Jack Vandersteen said the accused – who was due to give birth this week – had committed a violent, very serious act. “Why you had an axe in your handbag was probably to do with your lifestyle. “You were probably getting in arguments with people you normally got on with.” Mr Vandersteen, who was satisfied it was an isolated incident, handed down a 12-month good behaviour bond without conviction.

Ice age ambos By CAM LUCADOU-WELLS AMBULANCES are being called out at least once a week to treat people using crystal methamphetamine, otherwise known as ‘ice’. A Turning Point report released last week showed icerelated call-outs nearly doubled to 54 in Greater Dandenong and nearly tripled to 72 in Casey in 2012-13. In metropolitan Melbourne, annual call-outs had increased from 136 to 1112 in the three years up to 2012-13. Turning Point clinical director Dr Matthew Frei said these cases were for the “really crook” patients – those extremely agitated, violent and in some cases vulnerable to heart problems and stroke. He said the community needed more education on the drug’s potentially serious side-effects. “Many people use this drug with minor ill-effects and only for a brief time. “A person may see their friends use it and haven’t seen

EPIDEMIC the ill-health problems, but they may be themselves vulnerable to the serious mental health effects of the drug.” He said smoking ice had opened up a “new market” – a more intense and less stigmatised experience than injecting the drug. “It’s (wrongly) perceived as a soft drug because it’s smoked in a pipe.” Dr Frei said the drug-induced violence was putting a “huge pressure” on police, ambulance officers and emergency department staff. In some cases, patients needed high levels of sedation to calm them down. The other challenge was the lack of a medical solution “of the size and effect of methadone” – which is used to treat heroin addicts.

However, there had been “good” outcomes using psychosocial treatments, such as counselling. “There’s no way society is going to tolerate it anymore, particularly the very violent behaviour,” Dr Frei said. “In my view, the law enforcement response – which is always going to have a role – needs to be augmented by education and treatment.” Turning Point researcher Dr Belinda Lloyd said an “all-community” approach was required involving government, health agencies, police, community groups, residents and businesses. “We must continue to work hard to get the message out about what drugs can do to the individual as well as those close to them. “Whether it’s ice, alcohol or even prescription drugs, people need to be aware of the risks involved.” How ice nearly destroyed a life.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Safety from survey IT IS great to see the City of Greater Dandenong is surveying residents in a bid to improve road safety in our community (Road safety mapped out, Dandenong Journal, 7 April). As a lawyer who works for people injured in road accidents in the Dandenong area, I feel strongly about making sure our roads are safe for everyone. I hope the council will use the survey findings to improve safety, particularly at local traffic hot-spots like the intersection of Thomas and Scott streets, and the turn-off to Robinson Street from Princes Highway. Tim Conboy, Maurice Blackburn Dandenong.

No right to bigotry DEAR Senator Brandis, it is with respect that I request you to kindly retract the statement you made in parliament that “People do have a right to be bigots you know. In a free country people do have rights to say things that other people find offensive or insulting or bigoted”. I agree that freedom of speech is important in a free country. But even a free country has its boundaries. Freedom of speech must come with the boundary of respect. The problem with the word bigot by definition is the refusal to tolerate or respect the opinions or diversity of others or their right to have their own differing views in a public arena. The freedom to speak or air one’s personal beliefs and opinions in public is quite different from imposing unreasonable intolerance, publicly in an offensive and bigoted manner. If we desire to be a free united nation we must endeavour to ensure that the laws of our land command desirable not undesirable behaviour that seeks to enable all Australians to practice respect and public tolerance in ways that are mindful and respectful of our collective human dignity, personal diversities, national citizenship and the peaceful common good of all Australians. I do not believe that anyone should have the right to offend and be a bigot, as bigoted

behaviour can easily disturb public peace and order. It is important to be mindful of the potential threat that stating “People do have a right to be bigots you know ... ” can impose on peace and public safety in general. Hence, I respectfully request you to please rephrase or withdraw the above statement. I am certain an apology to Australians for the same would be much appreciated. Regards the remaining action, why not retain the lawful intent of the words ... insult, humiliate, intimidate, within the public context and refine the remainder of the bill to ensure that any offensive behaviour that is likely to hurt, exclude, obfuscate, deprive or cause bodily harm be unlawful with logical consequences befitting of the behaviour? Protection for racial vilification is vital to the protection of human dignity, communal peace, harmony and co-existence. There are no compelling reasons for your proposal to repeal Section 18C, so why lower our existing benchmarks? The fact that Australia is globally positioned within the Asia Pacific and East Asia regions makes it even more compelling for our legislation to have the highest standards with no loopholes for possible abuse. Hence any recommended changes to the Racial Discrimination Act must seek to be as inclusive as possible and command total respect. In this modern era of globalised and multi-national transactions we cannot be good international citizens without good national tolerance and respect on our domestic home front. Please let us not backtrack into the cobwebbed recesses of past racial intolerances, injustices and discriminations or dismiss intolerance in guarded mateship. Instead let us ensure that “we do unto others as we would have others do unto us”, as advised by a certain wise and great Jewish carpenter some 21 centuries ago. A tried and tested way to co-exist in peace and harmony and advance Australia fair in a united non-discriminatory way. Geraldine Gonsalvez, Dandenong.

IT’S NONE OF OUR BUSINESS BUT… AN ALLEGED armed robbery victim copped some unexpected attention from Embona detectives. They found three imitation machine-guns on visiting the man’s house in August. He appeared in Dandenong Magistrates’ Court last Monday over the prohibited ‘weapons’, which he said a friend bought and he’d assumed were legally bought at a toy shop. “I play video games,” he said. “I enjoy reading about those sort of things and watching those movies.” The court ordered the destruction of the guns and fined the man $800 with conviction. FIRE crews unwittingly uncovered a hydroponic cannabis crop following a fire outside a Keysborough home.

Neighbours spotted flames coming from the box between the powerline and the Kingsclere Avenue home on Thursday 1 May and called triple-zero. Firefighters extinguished the blaze and checked the house for occupants as standard procedure. They didn’t find anyone home, but did discover 96 cannabis plants. Police arrested a 35-yearold man but released him without charge. Investigations are continuing.

at last Wednesday’s Greater Dandenong Chamber of Commerce breakfast, Mr Landsman asked with a grin: “Is it made out of metal?” “No, you can’t recycle it!” Mr Sturgess replied. “I SWEAR by Almighty God to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth,” guest speaker Andrew Rule proclaimed, holding a book high above his head as he stepped up to the lectern at last week’s Greater Dandenong Chamber of Commerce breakfast. He said he learnt from watching police in the witness box “the higher the Bible, the bigger the lie”. “But I’m not going to tell you any lies today,” he said.

PREMIER Regional Business Awards chairman James Sturgess feared for the small eagle statue he presented to nominee Tyrone Landsman from Future Metals Recycling. As he received the glass token

Accused to contest exposure charges By CAM LUCADOU-WELLS A FORMER bus driver will contest charges of wilfully and indecently exposing himself to a 15-year-old girl after allegedly asking her to watch him urinate out of a bus. Albert White, 43, whose address has been legally suppressed, allegedly told police he had a “medical condition with his bladder” and didn’t think the passenger “minded”, prosecutor Marie Eales told Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on Monday. Leading Senior Constable Eales said the victim complied with the driver’s request for her to watch while the bus was parked during a DandenongBrighton bus run on 29 November, though she thought it “strange”. According to the victim, White – after relieving himself – turned around with his penis still in his hand. White allegedly then questioned the victim while he was still exposed. She allegedly

gave a false name to him and fled the bus. CCTV footage confirmed the victim’s version of events, Leading Senior Constable Eales said. White was also charged with obscene and indecent exposure over separate footage of him “playing” with himself in his seat while passengers were on board the same day, LSC Eales said. Defence lawyer Bill Grimshaw told the court his client had acted under a “medical emergency” arising from a urinary tract problem. “He’s someone who is otherwise of good character. He’s never been in trouble before. He would be someone with good prospects of rehabilitation. “His position is it’s a misunderstanding. “He did his best to conceal his penis from the complainant at all times.” As a result of the incident, White – who is married with a son and three daughters aged

5-14 – had lost his bus-driving job and voluntary positions at a Samoan community church, Mr Grimshaw said. White had also had his ‘working with children’ card suspended. Magistrate Jack Vandersteen indicated he would convict White and order him to perform unpaid community work in exchange for a guilty plea. “There’s nothing discreet about this ... why does he have his penis exposed on the bus?” He said White faced a “class one” sexual offence – one that involved a child – which would require the accused to be registered as a sexual offender. “I don’t expect someone (in this position) to be totally upfront and candid. “She wants to get out (of the bus). He tells her it’ll be all right ... there’s more to this than meets the eye.” White, who had sought a non-conviction, will contest the charges at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 13 June.

TESTIMONIALS I ve been using Body Be Best for weight loss and body sculpting. I am thrilled with the results. I have lost 5 kilos and 24cm from my torso, which equates to 2 dress sizes for me, since I started. When talking to the consultants about my severe Carpal Tunnel problems, I also discovered the beneits of the micro current machine as a symptom relief for the pins and needles, and the numbness I was experiencing in my hands and I was delighted with the unexpected results. I found after only a few treatments I was waking up with no pins and needles or numbness! I found driving easier and using my hands for tasks that usually I gave up on had greater improvement. I would like to thank very much the staff and management of Body Be Best as I have found them to be of the highest professional and personal standards and I highly recommend this experience. Julie, 45, Wantirna I was having so much pain my itness was disappearing at a great rate. Low and behold after two treatments the pain started to subside which enabled me to resume training, and after one month I was back on track to compete at the World Masters Games.

Lose the smirk By CAM LUCADOU-WELLS

A MAGISTRATE scolded an accused for seemingly “smirking” over dangerous driving charges in Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on Monday. Dean Francis Keogh, 29, had pleaded guilty to charges arising from a drink-driving crash on Westall Road, Springvale on 29 September. As Keogh’s defence was presented, Magistrate Jack Vandersteen noted the accused appeared to be “smirking” or “laughing”. Keogh’s lawyer assured the court her client was remorseful. She said: “It’s a quirk that he has. He is not smirking ... that’s what his face looks like.” Police prosecutor Marie Eales said Keogh had been observed driving in a “careless and unpredictable” manner, swerving from lane to lane before striking the rear of a car stopped

at a red light about 9.30pm. Keogh’s car flipped onto its roof and slid for several metres, Leading Senior Constable Eales said. The accused, who escaped out of the car’s window, urged onlookers not to call emergency services and refused a preliminary breath-test. A bottle of bourbon was found in his car’s front seat, the court was told. LSC Eales said Keogh, after being hospitalised due to complaining of head pain, recorded a .145 blood-alcohol reading three hours later. He told police in October he had no memory of the incident, LSC Eales said. Keogh’s lawyer said the accused had under-estimated how much he drank that day. He did not drink often, let alone to excess, and didn’t behave “appropriately” after the

crash because of a combination of shock and concussion, the lawyer said. Mr Vandersteen said there was nothing to suggest Keogh had tried to avoid the victim’s car – which said much for Keogh’s “state of mind – or lack of”. He said often fatal crashes occurred when a driver had “a bad day”. “That’s all it takes. “Say the vehicle you hit was shunted into oncoming traffic or that car flipped and those occupants were seriously injured or dead. “That’s why the deterrence is so high for drink-driving.” Keogh had paid off a $7000 damage bill as a result of the crash, the court was told. He was convicted, fined $1000, disqualified from driving for 24 months and ordered to attend a road-trauma seminar.

Nursing passion By CASEY NEILL ZOE Sabri’s passion for nursing the elderly in their own homes has earned her a national nursing award. The Narre Warren South 24-year-old won the Outstanding Graduate title at last week’s Australian Nursing Awards. She’s worked at Springvale’s Royal District Nursing Service since last year. “The main focus is to look after clients in their own home, and our aim is to prevent them from ending up in hospital or permanent care,” she said. “People are very thankful for it. “You know you’ve helped that person stay at home and that’s where they want to be.” The judges described Ms Sabri as a caring nurse and commended her “obvious engagement” with the community, evidenced in a client’s praise of her “amazing people skills and interest in others”. The HESTA award included a $5000 ME Bank EveryDay transaction account and a $5000 education grant. “I have been thinking of doing extra study but money has been an issue. It’s been preventing me,” she said. “I was excited and appreciative to know my hard work is paying off. Somebody has noticed. “I’ve taken the initiative a lot. I was doing more for my clients than I needed to.” Ms Sabri has always had a passion for health. “As a child I was interested in the human body and

She decided to give nursing a shot. “I’ve loved every day of it,” she said. “It can be very challenging, there’s a lot of on your feet problem-solving. “You don’t have that support of doctors around you as you would in a hospital setting. “But I feel like I can build a

better relationship with my clients.” Ms Sabri regularly relies on interpreters and reading body language to communicate with clients from non-English speaking backgrounds. “It’s definitely a challenge, but it also makes you really culturally aware of their traditions,” she said. “I’ve even learnt some different words from different languages.”

Dannielle’s message to feel good By YEAR 8 STUDENTS LAURA SMITH AND CHLOE LAU AT THE age of just two, Dannielle Miller suffered third degree burns on her right arm that resulted in several major operations. Although the scar is still visible today, she no longer despises or is embarrassed about this part of her body, but is happy and proud to reveal what she has overcome. Dannielle visited us this morning at Haileybury Keysborough’s annual Mother’s Day breakfast and taught a valuable lesson to students and mothers alike. She explained how she conquered her self-consciousness and taught us to treasure our bodies no matter what flaws we possess.

Dannielle gave us one task this Mother’s Day: to feel good about ourselves and be admirable role models, causing those around us to feel the same. This kind of mindset should be acknowledged worldwide as it is an inspiration to growing teens and girls struggling with their body image. During her years of adolescence, Dannielle’s scar affected her not only physically but mentally as well. After being told by her Grade 4 crush that the mark on her arm was “gross” and “ugly” she began to hide it by wearing jumpers and skivvies, even during summer, for many years. Later on in Dannielle’s life,

when she took on the role of school counsellor, she realised that to make students feel good about themselves, she had to unveil the part of her that she had kept hidden for so long. She had to be confident in herself and her body to make a difference. Dannielle Miller now accepts that it was not her Grade 4 crush’s fault for her self-doubt, but instead was hers due to caring about others’ opinions. As the saying goes, “sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me”. She now is an inspirational leader in modern Australian society and has had a profound impact on many women in today’s world.

SES search for missing man By CASEY NEILL SPRINGVALE SES volunteers joined the search for a missing man last seen in Dandenong South. Homicide Squad Missing Persons Unit detectives said Melbourne delivery van driver Shiva Chauhan, 27, started his route on Thursday 1 May. He was seen at a bakery on South Park Road, Dandenong South, about 12.30am on Friday and never completed his deliveries. His van was found in Hutton Road, Keysborough, about 3pm Friday, and investigators have been told the van was seen at the location about 5.40am that day. Mr Chauhan’s wallet and other belongings were left inside. SES volunteers conducted a line search near the scene last Thursday, looking for anything that might provide information about what happened to Mr Chauhan.

Springvale SES volunteers search Hutton Road. Detectives are concerned for his welfare and are treating his disappearance as suspicious. He’s described as Indian and about 177 centimetres tall with a slim build and dark-coloured straight hair.

Police urged anyone with information about Mr Chauhan’s whereabouts or who saw his delivery van in the Dandenong and Keysborough areas on Friday morning to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

HALLAM HOTEL

A NARRE Warren North retiree has been reunited with his stolen Mustang. Sergeant Andrew Payne said police found the car at a Dandenong address last Thursday 8 May, thanks to information from the public and investigations conducted Wednesday night. He said officers arrested a 48-year-old Dandenong man, who was interviewed and released pending summons. The investigation is ongoing. Sgt Payne said owner John Archibald was “over the moon”.

“His son was just about in tears,” he said. “The windscreen is cracked and there’s a little bit of panel damage. “But it could have been much worse.” Mr Archibald had pleaded for the Ford GT Mustang convertible’s safe return after returning home on Monday to find his garage broken into and the distinctive car missing. “Since I could walk I’ve always wanted to have a Mustang. “I can imagine why someone else wanted to get their

backside in it and have a flutter in it,” he said. Mr Archibald bought the car two years ago but said few people knew he had it. He suspected someone took a liking to it, followed him home and returned to steal it. “It was one of the retirement plans,” he said. Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit www. crimestoppers.com.au with any information about the theft. – Casey Neill

SPACE IS THE FINAL LIFESTYLE FRONTIER FOR TREE-CHANGERS ENZO RAIMONDO

CEO Real Estate Institute of Victoria

SPACE, the freedom to make noise, to live as you like - for many people in rural and regional Victoria these have been part of life for generations. And for many “tree changers”, who are keen to enjoy the benefits of living away from a major city, such freedoms are part of the attraction. But with the growth in recent years in our major regional centres of newer, smaller homes, this is starting to change. There are now many more units and townhouses - and even some apartments - than ever before. And they are clearly becoming

more popular, with healthy capital growth and rentals. The rental yield for this style of property in regional Victoria is now at 5.1 per cent for one-bedroom units and 5.2 per cent for twobedroom units. This is good news for investors, and for owner occupiers looking for a property that is likely to grow in popularity and value. For those looking for life in a smaller home, townhouses and apartments offer many benefits. They can be a welcome change low-maintenance, a ready-made community, perhaps a brand-new property. And for many, it offers an

affordable step on to the property ladder. But it can be a big adjustment, with most regulated by an owners’ corporation (previously known as a body corporate). For this reason, thorough pre-purchase research is the key to living harmoniously in this environment. If you are thinking of buying a unit or apartment, it’s important to thoroughly check the section 32 statement to potential buyers. In this, you will find out what the monthly, quarterly or annual costs are for the owners’ corporation. It’s also worth getting additional information on the property. You

can ask for this from the agent who will either be able to provide it or ask for it from the vendor. Some common questions to ask the agent include: have there been issues with parking, rubbish bins or gardens? All of these can cause issues in medium density living. You may also want to ask whether any of the owners have been reluctant to spend on maintenance or capital works. Armed with the right information, this style of living can be the right move - and just the answer for those wanting to downsize or make their first step on the property ladder.

A young couple beamed at each other as they stood on their new block of land at Highgrove and ran their hands over the large red ‘sold’ sticker. The couple snapped up the first block of land at Highgrove at the estate’s VIP launch on Saturday 3 May. Highgrove, which is nestled among the quiet rural ambiance of Clyde North, is the latest residential development by Brown Property Group. More than 50 guests attended the VIP launch. The master planned community will eventually boast 900 homes in four precincts linked by an extensive network of parks and open recreation space. The parklands will foster a sense of community to promote neighbourhood get-togethers, casual sporting events, children’s play and weekend picnics. There is also a planned recreation loop which will provide opportunities for walking, running and cycling. Development manager Ryan Pritchard said Highgrove combined “country charm with urban convenience”. He said it was close to a range of amenities, including schools, shops, public transport and recreation facilities, in Berwick and Cranbourne North. “We are very excited about the wonderful views offered at Highgrove as well as being so close to some key local amenities such as the township of Berwick and Casey Fields,” said Mr Pritchard.

THE SALES OFFICE IS OPEN SEVEN DAYS A WEEK. “The estate has been designed with family and community in mind. “There will be a definite community feel thanks to the interlinked network of parks, but residents will have all the amenities the area has to offer on their doorstep.” Highgrove includes a range of block sizes to accommodate a range of family needs. A sales office is now open daily from 11am to 5pm and a display village will open by the end of the year. Mr Pritchard said the Highgrove team was excited about welcoming new residents and “bringing the community to life”. Highgrove is at the corner of BerwickCranbourne Road and Pattersons Road, Clyde North. For more information contact Linda on 1800 444 447.

EDUCATION WEEK

St John’s is the first choice ST JOHN’S Regional College has been the first choice for Catholic secondary schooling in Dandenong for over 50 years. With over 100 nationalities represented in the student body, the college is a world within a school. St John’s focuses on helping students find the right path and place within the school community and out in the world. The safe, encouraging and challenging environment at St John’s allows students to grow and succeed spiritually, academically and emotionally. Curriculum and co-curriculum programs are designed to ensure the highest possible quality of learning experience and a sense of belonging. Every facet of St John’s, both in and out of the classroom is built upon five guiding principles: faith, learning, integrity, service, community. These guiding principles are reflected in the actions and behaviour of both teachers and students. St John’s Regional College is a community in which learning, self-discipline, responsibility and connectedness are fostered, valued and encouraged, allowing students to grow into productive, valuable members of the wider community. Last week a carnival and mass marked the annual St John’s Day. The Dandenong College students also performed in Talent Quest heats, and will return to the stage for the final this Thursday 15 May at 7.30pm at the Drum Theatre. The judges include two past students who’ve gone on to conquer stage and screen, Nathan Murfey and Jordan Herbert, plus Kent and Franca Ross, who’ve worked and studied extensively in the music and stage industries. Tickets are available for $10 on 9767 4022 and everyone is welcome.

BUSINESS SOUTH-EAST

Breakfast looks like lunch By CASEY NEILL RYE Crust Bakery owner Andrew Lipiszko joked that last week’s Greater Dandenong Chamber of Commerce breakfast was actually his lunch. He’d already completed five hours’ work at the store in Foster Street, Dandenong, which was among the year’s first three Premier Regional Business Awards nominees. “The hours aren’t great. You have to love what you do,” Mr Lipiszko said. “But I get to go to work without any traffic.” The awards entered their 24th year at the 7 May event, where guest speaker, journalist and author Andrew Rule spoke about crooked cops, swift shoplifters, hitmen and conspiracies. Three nominees will be announced at four more breakfasts throughout the year, with the winners to be announced at a gala dinner next March. Mr Lipiszko was studying electrical engineering at Monash University when he discovered his love for baking. “Electricity kills and bread doesn’t,” he joked. He started baking as a night job he could fit around his studies. “I fell in love with the trade,” he said. “I still graduated with honours.” Mr Lipiszko and wife Hanna opened their own business, between two Polish butchers, in September 2009, when Dandenong’s revitalisation was just getting underway. They initially concentrated on bread but soon added coffee, sandwiches, wholesale orders, sweets, deli products and a catering service. Mr Lipiszko cares for and uses a 100-year-old sourdough starter, monitoring PH levels to avoid a strong aftertaste. “It takes a lot of care to keep it alive so it doesn’t get mouldy,” he said. “It’s alive. You use it, then you feed it. It regenerates.” SRX Global is the Australian market leader in electronic manufacturing services, and partners with major innovators to make their visions a reality. It has established manufacturing facilities in Malaysia and New Zealand to complement its headquarters on Kitchen Road in Dandenong South, where it has just under 200 employees. General manager Jeff Malone said SRX Global exported to America and

SRX Global’s Jeff Malone, Tyrone Landsman from Future Metals Recycling and Rye Crust Bakery owner Andrew Lipiszko. Europe, and could see 15 to 20 per cent growth year on year for the next few. He said this would rely on the medical and defence industries. Mr Malone said the company was developing a cheek swab system to replace blood tests and an ultrasound machine the size of a phone. “The doctor walks around the hospital with an ultrasound like a stethoscope,” he said. “Or forget the hospital – he can go out in the field. “That’s the kind of design and manufacturing that’s happening in Melbourne right now. “If we’re not continuously breaking new ground we’ll fall behind.” Future Metals Recycling started in Shepparton in 2005 when two businessmen with no experience in the industry – Tom Garrett and Tyrone Landsman – purchased Fletcher Metals. In 2008 they established a purposebuilt facility in Ordish Road, Dandenong South, and bought National Metals in Hallam, consolidating the three sites under the Future Metals Recycling name. Mr Landsman, the managing director, attributed the company’s growth to three key areas – culture, strategy and service. He hires staff with a can-do attitude and empowers them to make decisions. “We treat everyone in our business

as a family member,” he said. A long-term strategy geared toward a sustainable future for the business guides every decision at Future Metals Recycling. It’s stuck strictly to ferrous and nonferrous metals, not straying into plastics or paper, and has positioned itself in the market above the backyard operators but below the major players. The business retained the small Hallam site to enable easy, quick access for small, one-off customers like tradesmen, and adjusts its prices on a monthly basis using the commodities index. Chisholm human, health and business services director Paul Goudie introduced the morning’s Youth Enterprise Award nominee, Danielle Erickson. The Frankston 18-year-old started a

Diploma of Specialist Make-up at Chisholm last year. “She’s a very dedicated and talented student. She strives to set high standards,” Mr Goudie said. “She’s got a wonderful future ahead of herself.” Danielle said she planned to make the most of her course, work hard and save money to explore her craft overseas. She’s always been creative and gets a thrill from “transforming someone into something that they love”. Danielle wants to work in film and television and one day establish her own make-up brand. “I could one day be the face of the make-up industry. I am the future of the make-up industry in Australia,” she said.

BUSINESS PROFILE

Beating back pain BACK pain is a common ailment for Dandenong residents and one in 11 residents can be expected to have back problems this year. Seeing a chiropractor can help reduce your back pain and correct your posture, which may prevent you from retiring too early. Chiropractic care is an effective management of different types of back pain. The Live Better, We’ve Got Your Back campaign launches Spinal Health Week (19-25 May, 2014), a national campaign by the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (CAA), to draw attention to the size of the problem of back pain and the importance of living a healthy lifestyle in Australia. Local chiropractors at Sims and Finn Chiropractic have called upon Dandenong residents to take up the challenge of improving their lifestyle habits to better care for their backs. “Improving our postural fitness, such as not sitting down for too long, sitting correctly, and using proper

techniques when bending or lifting can help to avoid damage to your spine,” Dr Hidge said. “Proper posture keeps everything in its natural position which reduces wear and tear on joints and relieves stress, improves health and enhances your appearance.” Putting up with back pain can lead to avoiding exercise and physical activity, and the effects can lead to mental health issues (including depression), and dissatisfaction in the workplace. “Low self-esteem can affect the way we feel about our bodies, including the way we carry ourselves,” Dr Djalikian said. “Poor posture places strain on the spine, thereby leading to potential back pain and poor spinal health.” Ways to improve your posture include: Try standing when you’re on the phone for extended periods; During meetings take regular stretch breaks;

· ·

you’re working at your · While computer take short breaks to stretch and stand;

and adjust your po· Check sition regularly; and the stairs instead · Take of the elevator where possible. To promote the message that a healthy spine leads to a healthier life, Sims and Finn Chiropractic is offering Dandenong residents the opportunity to attend the clinic for a complimentary spinal check. “Spinal Health Week is a great reminder to make an appointment with your local CAA chiropractor to assess your spinal health and discuss how a more active lifestyle will improve your overall well-being,” Dr Djalikian said. For a posture assessment or to make an appointment, contact Helen, Lilly, Veronica or Bianca at Sims and Finn Chiropractic, 52 Stud Road, Dandenong. Phone 9792 1945.

Correct freight, mate FREIGHT links projects will deliver a boost to business in the south east, Ports Minister David Hodgett said last week. The 2014-’15 State Budget included up to $9.1 billion to improve port connections and take trucks off local roads. Mr Hodgett said the budget provided $58 million, including a $38 million Commonwealth co-contribution, to establish Port Rail Shuttle services, developed in partnership with the private sector. “Which will improve the efficiency of containerised freight transport throughout Melbourne by connecting the port to major outer suburban freight hubs by rail,” he said. “The project will be based around the development of an efficient, dedicated rail terminal at the port connected to a system of private intermodal terminals within existing freight precincts at Somerton, Altona and Dandenong South.” Roads Minister Terry Mulder said the freight investment package included funding to build Victoria’s rail freight network as well as critical road connections, including the East West Link. “The full East West Link will dramatically improve connectivity across Melbourne, provide more direct routes to key destinations, including the port, the airport and the city, alleviating pressure on the Monash-West Gate corridor,” he said.

James and the big chill By LACHLAN MOORHEAD AT THE height of his three-year ice addiction, James wouldn’t sleep for four days straight and hallucinated that snakes were eating him alive. Heavily dependent on the drug, the 32-year-old’s life spiralled out of control soon after he began using it. James (not his real name), who has now been clean for more than 12 months, spoke of the extreme paranoia that consumed him while he was high on ice, including a harrowing episode which saw him hallucinating on the floor of a shed in Cranbourne for eight hours, taken to hospital the next day and transferred to a psychiatric ward for 10 days after that. “I was thinking I was getting eaten alive, for eight hours,” James said. “I thought there were bugs crawling down the wall, I could see them. I could actually see them, and spiders crawling down the wall. “And snakes kept coming to bite me, and they were biting into me and eating me alive. But it was through numbness, I was all numb.” James, who lives in Doveton, recalled how he couldn’t even recognise his own mother when she came to visit him at the hospital. “I thought I was going to die a few times, when I was in hospital. “My mother came to see me and I

ICE

EPIDEMIC didn’t even know who she was,” James said. “I really thought I was going to die, and I kept telling her, ‘I’m gonna die now, it’s time for me to go.’ “She was in tears; she couldn’t believe I didn’t know who I was.” At the age of 16, James made his way from rural Victoria to Melbourne. He started “hitting the drugs” a few years later, experimenting with marijuana, speed, heroin and everything in between. By the age of 28, James had started using ice, injecting the methamphetamine into his bloodstream after a friend showed him how to. James said the drug was like nothing he had ever taken before and extremely hard to stop using. “You’re also addicted to the actual needle, going in and feeling that instant feeling,” he said. “You could feel it run through your whole body, straight to your head, up the back of your neck.”

James was soon caught in the throes of an ice addiction, one which saw him stay awake for four days straight without food and hardly any fluids. Employed at a pallet company in Springvale, James would work and drive while he was high on ice. His workmates let him sleep at the warehouse overnight because he had nowhere else to go. As his life spiralled dangerously out of control, James grew estranged from his parents while falling deeper into the world of addiction, living in boarding houses where ice was commonplace. Devastated by the deterioration of his relationship with his parents, James sought solace through taking the drug. “I ended up choosing that (ice) and with my father not wanting to know me, I’d use more ’cause I was hurt, and so you try and escape that hurt. “In the end I just wanted them back, so bad.” With his life in ruins and his body a shadow of itself after years of drug abuse, James woke up one morning more than 12 months ago and told himself enough was enough. He staved off his ice addiction through going cold turkey, pushing friends away who offered him the drug and continually reminding himself of the new life he wanted – a life which now includes his mum and dad, who James has reconciled with.

“I woke up one morning and I was thinking, ‘I’ve got nothing.’ All the years that I’ve worked, I’ve got nothing to show for it and I was sick of having nothing,” James said. “Losing good people around me, all my family didn’t want to know me, I had had enough. I used to sit there and cry, every day I’d be crying towards the end. “I just wanted my family back and good people. I didn’t want that lifestyle.” While he carries the memory of his addiction with him every day, James uses it as motivation to remain clean, confident enough to decline the drug if ever it was offered to him. Now on his way to finding a new job and a new home, James has taken the first steps towards a new life, with the hardest steps behind him. And he’s urging others who are battling substance abuse to do the same and seek help. “I do have a lot to do to re-build my life and make it strong. I’ve got to start from scratch again, it’s like getting reborn and that’s where I’m at now. I’m only at the start,” he said. “But this is the best I’ve felt for a long time.” For information and support contact Stepping Up on 1800 828 466 or at www. stepping-up.org.au.

Despina’s achievements more than just hot air By CASEY NEILL DESPINA Karatzias knew not a word of English when she arrived in Australia from Greece at age eight. The Dandenong North mum last week returned to her former high school, Lyndale Secondary College, to share her path to releasing a book. Adventures of a Balloon Girl shares and celebrates the lessons she’s learnt over the past decade managing a successful hot-air balloon tourism business. She introduced students to “the young Despina”. “Her name was Despina Papathanasiou,” she said. “Her parents were the hardest-working people she will ever meet, often working around the clock, leaving before she got up for school and getting home after she went to sleep. “They did not read or write and spoke very little English. “She never had help with her homework – life sucked when she compared herself to her English speaking parent friends, she felt she was disadvantaged and would always struggle.” But during her studies, she followed the motto “no regrets”. “I didn’t care what grade I ended up with, I knew I only had one go at this,” she said. “I knew this would be a ticket to something out there. “Despite my determination I was an average student academically – so average, in fact, that my TER (tertiary entrance score) was 50.” Ms Karatzias looked at social work, but decided it wasn’t for her. “If you’re not that into it, best move

Despina Karatzias speaks to Lyndale students. 119682 on – pursue what you are passionate about,” she said. “Your time is valuable and can never be replaced – don’t waste it.” She had great travel aspirations so a career in tourism caught her attention. Her low TER score meant a path to university through TAFE. “The road is not always straight. Your score does not define you,” she said.

“Whatever it is that you want to do there is always a way – it may not be conventional but if you want it bad enough you will find it.” “Travel represented happiness, freedom and adventure and I have now enjoyed more than 15 years in this industry, with the last decade managing a hot air balloon company called Global Ballooning.

Fly by nighter drops in By MELISSA MEEHAN POLICE hope to interview a Dandenong man in relation to a car crash in Belgrave on Thursday night. Belgrave Sergeant Craig West said that police were called to a residential address not long after 9am on Friday and found an abandoned car crashed into the front yard. Owner of the property Peter Raaymakers said it was the

second time in three months that a car had driven through his front fence. “Last time the girl lost control on the corner, but this time I looked through the window and thought, well, that’s a nice car,” he said. “We didn’t hear it crash, but that’s probably because it is a busy road – but the guy, he locked the car and left it here. “We’re lucky we have the

brick fence here, otherwise who knows what could have happened.” Sgt West said that police were able to find the driver’s address through his licence plate and registration. The P-plate driver is expected to be interviewed in relation to the crash. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Picture: ROB CAREW “I loved this job so much I wrote a book about it. “You need to take ownership in your learning right here, right now. “Every single one of you has a talent and greatness within you, every single one of you has something you are good at. “No-one has written your destiny for you because you are responsible for writing your own destiny.”

$305m boosts students From page 2 “There are kids who present with clear, profound disabilities but miss out by one point (under the PSD funding criteria). “We should be able to help them.” Janeane Baker, whose son with autism spectrum disorder was denied PSD funding, said children would continue to miss out if the criteria remained the same “no matter how much funding may be ‘available’.” Ms Baker formed a Change the Criteria group in 2012 out of concern for students with high-functioning autism missing out on PSD funding but foundering at mainstream school. “Students with ASD still need assistance from their end, to help them learn about social norms and expectations, and to help them navigate the school world which is often very confusing for them. “It’s all well and good for schools to be accepting of kids on the spectrum – it’s fantastic actually – but out in the post-school real world the community is not quite as accepting.” Officer Specialist School principal Sue Campbell said: “No-one would argue there needs to be a line in the sand somewhere”. “(PSD) is an expensive program. Even some with learning difficulties who are unfunded still get support in mainstream school.” She hoped the school might play the role in a muchneeded ASD campus in the south-east growth corridor. “Some of that will also be around upskilling schools across the board.” A spokeswoman for Education Minister Martin Dixon said no changes to the criteria were planned. A substantial $83.6 million boost for the PSD and SDTPs in 2015-’16 was forecast to cover student number growth “using the same criteria that has been in place for a number of years”. By that time, the two programs have a budgeted cost of more than $760 million. Mr Dixon’s spokeswoman said all students with an ASD were supported by regional ASD teacher coaches, teacher training and access to psychologists and speech pathologists. There was a “focus on creating ASD supportive environments” within schools, she said.

SPORT

Surprise debut for Hartung By JARROD POTTER SLOTTING his first AFL goal in front of friends and family will forever remain a great highlight for Hawthorn debutant Billy Hartung. While his first shot on goal veered off target, by his own admission of getting caught up thinking about the celebration afterwards, Hartung didn’t falter on his second go - running into goal against St Kilda last Saturday - and loved hearing the MCG and his Hawthorn team mates roar with joy for his achievement. “In the second quarter I missed an easy one and it was pretty disappointing, I was thinking about what I was going to do after I kicked it and that didn’t happen,” Hartung said. “Later on I got on the end of one of Hodgey’s handballs inside-50 and kicked my first one and was pretty happy about that. “I loved how the boys got around me and it made me feel pretty good to cap off a great debut game and help win it for the team.” The whole week leading up to the clash and the match itself - Hawthorn’s

145-point drubbing of St Kilda last weekend - took the wily former Mornington/ Dandenong Stingrays midfielder/wingman by surprise as he thought he was another week or more off a debut. “I was pretty surprised - I didn’t know I was going to get the call up,” Hartung said. “The week before that against Richmond I was the carry over player, the emergency, so I didn’t get to play VFL or AFL and I thought that might put me back in VFL to play another week. “I was lucky enough that I got the call up against St Kilda - I was excited and nervous at the same time, but a bit more excited to get the debut game in front of family and friends in Melbourne.” As far as debuts go, Hartung’s will rank among the top AFL echelons as he snared 26 possessions along with kicking his first AFL goal to go with it. It is even more remarkable as he started the game as the substitute and waited until an unfortunate injury ruled out club legend Sam Mitchell and brought Hartung into the action. “I was pretty surprised with how it all turned out - I couldn’t have played a

better debut game myself,” Hartung said. “I didn’t know I was going to get subbed on so early - I saw Mitchell get brought to the bench with a bit of a hobble. “It was nice to get on early obviously instead of later in the game so I could get a bit more of a feel for the game.” Hartung is living the schoolboy fantasy as an AFL footballer and has cherished his dream start in the senior ranks. His next hope is to maintain his place in the Hawthorn team and make sure he doesn’t travel between the senior team and their VFL affiliate Box Hill. “More so I just want to play consistent footy so I can keep my spot in the team,” Hartung said. “I don’t want to come in there, play a couple of games, then go back to VFL - I want to consolidate a spot and there’s a few injuries around at the moment so I’ve got a good opportunity.” Hartung held his spot this week and performed ably when the sub vest was taken off, gaining seven possessions and three marks in Hawthorn’s 19-point loss to Sydney.

Bowling them over By JARROD POTTER NATIONAL and State Champion in indoor bowls at a young age is a fantastic achievement for Keysborough Bowls Club’s Tiffany Brodie. Brodie, 15, from Hallam, is a three-time under-18 indoor Victorian bowls champion and won her first national championship last year. “I started playing indoor for five years and this year is my first outside,” Brodie said. “Mum (Karen) has been playing for 18 years and got me into it. “David Pratt from Keysborough saw me playing indoor at the club and told me to give outdoor a try and I’m really enjoying it… I love it.” On her fourth try for an indoor national championship Brodie almost swept the field winning seven-of-nine matches to clinch the title. “It was very challenging - we played nine games over the week and I won seven, had one draw and lost one… by one. “I was lucky enough to finish on top and won the gold.” Her achievements with Keysborough were staggering this season as she won the club outdoor two-bowl’s singles, ladies’ pairs, ladies’ triples and minor singles. She is also a hard-edged midfielder for Hallam Hawks Youth Girls football team and loves getting contested possessions through the centre.

Haileybury’s fast freestylers - from left; William Bowden, Angus Brabner, Anthony Ngo and Mitchell Black - claimed gold at the school swimming championships. 120142 Picture: JARROD POTTER

Haileybury’s own awesome foursome By JARROD POTTER

Keysborough Bowls Club’s youngest member - Tiffany Brodie is bowling her way to national and state championships. 118201 Picture: JARROD POTTER Her achievements are extraordinary enough, but Brodie is also profoundly deaf and believes her disability has made her strive to become better. “Just because I have a disability of being deaf, it doesn’t stop me from doing the things I love,” Brodie said. “If anything it has made me work harder. “It doesn’t stop me and no one should let deafness

hold you back - if you want something go and get it and anything is possible if you set your mind to it.” The next challenge for Brodie is the indoor national championships held in August before try-outs for the outdoor state Victorian team. “I’m trying out for the state team next month and if I get in that I’ll hopefully play in the Australian team in the future for outdoor bowls,” Brodie said.

LEAVING their opponents in their literal wake, Haileybury College’s boys freestyle relay smashed a School Sport Victoria state swimming record. The Haileybury Newlands campus under-11 boys 4x50metre freestyle relay - Angus Brabner, 11, Mitchell Black, 11, William Bowden, 10, and Anthony Ngo, 11, set the water ablaze as the relay touched in to claim gold and a new state record at 2.16.24 minutes.Haileybury held onto first place throughout the race and once the anchor Ngo touched the wall - the celebrations began. “It was really nerve wracking - everyone wanted to win,” Black said. “There were eight teams trying to win and it was a single heat and we won by seven or eight seconds and we got a state

record. “Throughout the race we were leading the whole way - Angus gave us a good start, I maintained it, Will put it out further and then Anthony brought us all home.” The foursome was elated to pick up the state championship and return to school as the best state swimmers in Victoria for their event. “It was good - well we won,” Bowden said. “I was very excited when I first went in the water and dived in,” Brabner said “I was very excited when Mitch Will and Anthony bring it home. “It feels really exciting and I was very joyful as you’ve just won such a big achievement,” Ngo said. Ngo also won the 11-year-old boy’s 50m breaststroke final to bring back a pair of gold medals and cap off a stellar Tuesday at

the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre last week. Away from the school the foursome also swim for their respective clubs - with Bowden and Black representing Haileybury Waterlions, Brabner swims for Bayside and Ngo is a star for Nunawading. The foursome is already geared up to defend their state title at next year’s School Sport Victoria swimming championships. They wanted to thank Haileybury for letting them go to APS and “Mr Scar” - Haileybury’s Newsland Boys Sports Co-ordinator Dominic Scardamaglia - for his help and taking the team to the swimming events. “They’ve trained really well throughout the season and worked pretty hard and reaped the rewards as a result of their hard work,” Scardamaglia said.

SEABL - round 7

Corker for Thunder By JARROD POTTER PUTTING aside their six-nil defeat last Friday night, Dandenong put its name back among the NPL top brass with a 3-1 win over defending champion Northcote City. The go-ahead score came late in the first half as Matt Millar banked his third goal of the season as he cannoned a shot from outside the box past the Northcote keeper Chris Theodoridis in the 32nd minute. A consolation goal came from Northcote substitute James Kalifatidis in the 78th minute to finish out the match with a two-goal deficit. Dandenong’s small forward line beguiled and ran straight past Northcote to slot the match-winners. Kieran Dover was set up beautifully in the 51st minute by a Marcus Schroen rocket that was blocked by Theodoridis before captain Alan Mulcahy found Dover unmarked across the box. Schroen added a notch to his goal ledger in the 73rd minute as Kris Koiussis found the Melbourne Heart youth player to slot the final nail in the Northcote coffin. Thunder coach Dean Hennessy said the nine-goal turnaround in fortune highlighted some new strategies and systems Dandenong wants to put in place, especially when they travel. “That was definitely for me the best performance of the season,” Hennessey said. “The scoreboard never lies - to go from a six-nil to 3-1 against the champions is a massive turnaround in the space of a week.

“I said to the boys you don’t become a bad team in two weeks but fundamentally you have to learn that when we go away against top sides we may have to defend a little different than when we play at home.” Slightly tinkering with the lineup on-field trying to prevent easy passes coming out of the opposing defence made a world of difference for Dandenong. “Football is probably a simple game, but by playing one player further forward it made a big difference going forward and defending higher up and stopping them having a dominance of possession at the back,” Hennessey said. “Going forward in the first half we looked dangerous - we should’ve been three or four up as we had not only half chances but two one-onone shots, but to their credit, the boys who missed the two one-onones scored later.” To continue the good news, Dandenong expect striker Jake Nakic to return - from a hamstring strain against Werribee, which has been rescheduled to Sunday evening at 6pm to coincide with the re-opening of the pavilion at George Andrews Reserve. It adds to the Thunder’s successful week after brushing aside State League team Doveton SC 3-1 to advance into the sixth round of the Dockerty Cup. Dandenong City travelled to Bendigo on Saturday night and returned home with a 2-4 loss while Springvale White Eagles face FC Bulleen Lions on Monday night.

Banjo back in fashion By MICHAEL FLOYD BANJO Boy returned to his brilliant best with a stunning win in his heat of the Group 2 Berwick Mazda Harrison-Dawson at Sandown Park on Thursday evening. The striking white and black chaser began well from box 8, sweeping around the field to lead through the first turn and powering to a two-and-three-quarter length victory in 29.34 seconds. The win was particularly satisfying for respected Tooradin-based mentor Ken Virtue who has had to deal with several issues with the greyhound. “To qualify for this race is very satisfying,” he said. “I was disappointed with his runs at the Meadows (during the Austra-

lian Cup Carnival in February). He had a little problem with a ligament but he wasn’t quite the same dog, just didn’t have the same drive.” Having taken a break from the track (and fulfilling limited stud duties), Banjo Boy resumed with a win in modest time on a heavy Warragul track. The run left Virtue uncertain as to where the greyhound was in his preparation. “I had a fair idea where he was but I had to be sure so I gave him a trial here (at Sandown) last Saturday. He went very well which gave me a lot of confidence that he was back to somewhere near his best.” Joining Banjo Boy in next Thursday’s $145,000 final is Tyronimo which caused the upset of the night in defeating reigning TAB Melbourne Cup champion Black

Banjo Boy strummed out a three-length victory on Thursday. 120141 Magic Opal, Group 3 Bert Bryan Memorial winner Musqin Bale, and the exciting Mepunga Melachi which came from last to win his heat. The $145,000 Group 2 Harrison-Dawson pays homage to the

club’s two longest serving chairmen - Henry Harrison and Geoff Dawson. The race is restricted to male greyhounds and is run concurrently with the $145,000 Macro Meats Sapphire Crown which is restricted to female greyhounds.

A DANDY double greeted Rangers fans on Saturday night as Dandenong overcame Frankston. Lighting up the court down the stretch, Dandenong pushed through a 93-71 win with 20-point quarters throughout the clash against the Blues - including a 12-on-15 field goal final term 28-point blitz. Dandenong’s assist game proved too hard for Frankston to stop as the Rangers piled on 21-toeight dish offs through the likes of rising star Michael Wearne (5 points, 6 assists) and inside presence Brent Hobba (1 point, 10 rebounds, 5 assists). Coach Darren Perry was able to give his star imports - Daequon Montreal (26 points, 9 rebounds) and Tony Lewis (21 points, 8 rebounds) a decent break as the whole team took Frankston to town. Calvin Enge (15 points) found his way to the basket with ease while Dwayne Campbell (9 points) and Owen Odigie (9 points) also stepped up to fill the void left by Andrew Harms’ absence. The win takes Dandenong men back to a .500 season with four wins and four losses and the third placed Eastern conference Rangers will face Ballarat at home on Sunday. Dandenong women similarly gunned past Frankston for a 72-65 win on the back of stellar first and last terms. The Rangers went to sleep through the middle terms - scoring nine and 12 respectively - as Frankston took a four-point lead into the last term. Stepping up under pressure were Dandenong’s young point-guard and centre combination in Aimie Clydesdale (21 points) and Lauren Scherf (16 points, 12 rebounds). Dandenong is relishing its time with Larissa Anderson back into the SEABL coaching ranks with a 6-1 record the best in the SEABL East on the back of a five-game winning streak. Dandenong women will face Ballarat, featuring former Dandenong triple SEABL premiership player Steph Cumming.

SPORT TAC Cup - round 7

The best revenge... is to win By JARROD POTTER

Above - This Stingray-Ranges tackle-fest could only be disassembled by the umpires. 120146 Pictures: JARROD POTTER In the heat of battle Tom Glenn takes a strong mark under pressure. 120146 the second half as Kempster, Bailey Dale (2) and a defensively-shifted Keegan Downie impressed coach Black. “Bailey Dale was really good again… he continually gets better every time he plays,” Black said. “Keegan Downie showed some signs when he was forced to go back, competed really well, Bailey Rice showed again and Jack Lonie always competes really well.”

Where it stings further for Dandenong will be with those who faced the 112-point TAC Cup grand-final humiliation last season by the Ranges, as Daylan Kempster, Kyle Gray, Jack Lonie, Tom Lamb and Blake Mullane gain no satisfying revenge the Stingrays would have desperately wanted. Black said the slightest drop in form can spell trouble in a competition as strong as the TAC Cup this

season and Dandenong did not perform at its best standard. “I think we play in a really strong competition you can’t afford to not be at 100 per cent of your game,” Black said. “I think we dropped off a bit and the other team pounced on us.” A one-week hiatus is on the cards for seventh placed Dandenong before facing Tasmania at Shepley Oval on Sunday 25 May from 11am.

Muddy draws all round for Demons SOUTHERN FOOTBALL LEAGUE Division 2 - round 4

ladder leading Mordialloc away on Saturday.

A BITTERSWEET draw summed up a tough day at the office for Springvale Districts. In muddy conditions better suited for ducks and pigs, The Demons fought through the slop to keep in contention with Hampton. Down seven points at the final break, Springvale Districts’ resolve was energised through an early goal to Dandenong-area football legend Gavin Vassallo, his second for the afternoon. David Ford was next to strike to erase the margin, before Matt Thompson helped bring the tally to 8.6 (54) - the very same as Hampton as the final siren blew. Aidan Jolly kept the Demons in the hunt with a pair of goals up to three-quarter-time while Brodie Snow relished the conditions to earn a best on ground nod alongside Matt Thompson, Chris McTaggart and Daniel Wilson. The seventh place Districts face

Division 3 LYNDALE claimed crucial points over the recently-demoted South Yarra, edging out the visitors in a 12-point victory. The hard yards were fought in the guts as Chris Egan, Ben Cox and Dale Tormey all pounced on any football that came near. Trevor Kumetaitis (3 goals) and Matt Stuart (2) were the best of the goal kicking Pumas. Narrowly downed by premiership hot-favourite Mount Waverley, Sandown performed ably in the soggy conditions to only concede an 11-point loss. The Mountain Lions mostly kept the Cobras off the scoreboard throughout the first half before Jake Chapman (3 goals) and Jesse Tregea (2) started rattling off a comeback. Sandown’s driving force was John Frenken, Lee Robinson and James Hewitt. Dandenong was belted by 85 points as Black Rock flexed its mus-

cles in Division 3. Jarrod Lapthorne added a brace to his goal kicking stats while Ryan Forsyth, Stephen Young and Warren Kairns put some muscle back into the Redlegs effort.

CASEY CARDINIA FOOTBALL LEAGUE Seniors - round 5 A BURRA-SHAPED bruising was the only thing left of Keysborough following a 6.10 (46) to 24.17 (161) pumping by premiership contenders Berwick. Keysborough’s contribution on the weekend was to witness the awesome power of Berwick; a young side emerging as a serious premiership contender that handed the Burra a 115-point belting at Rowley Allen Reserve. The Burra were competitive in the first quarter, but a super-efficient Berwick forward line saw the margin blow out to four goals by quarter time. The visitors flexed their muscles in the second term, a 10.2 to 1.3 flurry opening up a 75-point margin at the main break.

To Keysborough’s credit, it hung tough in the second half but was simply outclassed by a fitter, slicker, and clearly more talented combination. Glen Hawthorn was once again a standout for the Burra, continuing great from that should see representative honours come his way in the coming weeks, while Tyson King, Geoff Humphreys and Michael Downie were other experienced campaigners to show their younger team mates the way. For Berwick, Paul Vanschilt was dynamic through the midfield, kicking four goals and having a hand in many others, while Michael Manley and Jordy Andrews kicked five and four goals respectively. The Burra, who have been battered from pillar to post over the last four weeks, now enter a fivegame stretch where they should be aiming to notch a win or two on the board. That run starts this Saturday when the ninth-placed Burra roll out the welcome mat for eighth-placed Tooradin.

Eastern Football League - round 5

Bulls back with a bang By JARROD POTTER

Craig Anderson was sensational through the midfield for Noble Park in its 173-point flogging Picture: JARROD POTTER of Scoresby. 119736

LIKE Bulls in a China shop, Noble Park destroyed every effort Scoresby could mount in a 173-point belting. With last week’s comefrom-behind draw with Knox fresh in the Bulls’ minds, the rage was taken out on Scoresby - who look destined to fall from the EFL first division this season, scoring only 12.29 per cent on its opponents across its first five clashes. Not even the weather could spare Scoresby from a lashing

as Noble Park thumped home 26 goals. The waywardness of past weeks would have perturbed coach Jon Knight - with the Bulls kicking 21 behinds to go along with its 26 majors. The Magpies failed to swoop on a goal of their own, with a scant three behinds summing up their offensive achievements. The goal scoring was left to the Bulls and while it would probably be easier to list who didn’t kick multiple goals, the run-and-carry of Shayne Allan

(5 goals) and returned VFL midfielder Jackson Sketcher (4) stood out amongst 12 individual goal kickers. Craig Anderson put his hand up again for best afield, shattering the Scoresby midfield, while Dan Keely, Sketcher and Piva Wright also featured in the best. The percentage boost helps the Bulls creep up to seventh on the EFL Division 1 ladder as Noble Park heads up the hills to resume hostilities against long-time rival Vermont this week.

MUD on the shorts and painful memories will be the only things Dandenong takes away from a lacklustre outing against the Eastern Ranges. The hot-and-cold Stingrays evened out the strong performance against NSW/ACT Rams last week with an embarrassing capitulation against Eastern this weekend. Dandenong’s six games thus far this season - win, loss, win, loss, win and finally a 34-point loss to Eastern. “I’d love to show the consistency where we can string together consecutive games,” Stingrays coach Craig Black said. “I believe that we’ve got a strong enough group to do it, but that’s the challenge with the under-18s and the kids to get that four-quarter performance and take it week to week. “I think we’re a good footy team and we’ve got good players - as long as they’re playing their role and doing what is expected of them.” Two rotations down at half-time did not help the Stingray cause, but the damage was done in the second term as the Ranges ascended to the top of a 33-point lead on the back of bags from Rory Sheridan-Ferrie (4 goals) and Christian Petracca (3). Matt Homfray (knee strain) and Rourke Fischer (dislocated finger) took no further part in the clash after the half and in some respects were spared further embarrassment as Dandenong limped towards defeat. The Stingrays performed ably in
