No cheer here By Alana Mitchelson THE issue of the lack of Christmas decorations in the shire’s major townships has resurfaced this year as the council election and the festive season approaches. Mayor Jodie Owen has defended Cardinia Shire Council’s decision to refrain from spending money on Christmas street decorations after another candidate contesting a seat on council included the issue in her official candidate statement. “Christmas decorations in Main Street are not funded by the council because if they were paid for in Pakenham, then they would need to be funded in every township in Cardinia Shire,” Ms Owen said. “With rate capping, council’s changed. If we don’t make the hard decisions, we’d have to start cutting services. “Pakenham has one of the largest carols in Victoria. Each year thousands attend this night, and not all families who attend are Christian. “I think the majority of residents would support funding for child and maternal health, school crossing supervisors, youth services, senior services and of course numerous infrastructure programs over putting decorations up in each of our townships. “It’s a shame that in a council election, this is becoming one of the main issues.” Pakenham’s Mama Rosa Pizza owner Rosa Santo said she organised a Santa float with a horse and carriage every year for the enjoyment of children in the community during Christmas-time. “We’ve done it every year for 12 years. It doesn’t matter what religion you are, it’s for everyone to enjoy,” Ms Santo said. “For the last two or three years, the council hasn’t contributed to my Santa float.“ Continued on page 3

Mr Thomas was thrilled with the success of the annual charity dinner, attended by 250 people at the Cardinia Cultural Centre on Friday 14 October. “The room looked better than it has before, people had a great time and, most importantly, we raised significant funds to be used by local community groups across the Casey Cardinia Region,” he said. “It is the most important fundraising activity the foundation participates in and our thanks goes out to everyone who contributed to making it a huge success.” Guests rocked out to the sounds of the Awesome 80s show, featuring hit songs from the likes of Sean Kelly from The Models, Dale Ryder from Boom Crash Opera and Mark Gable from The Choir Boys.

‘Name and shame’ plan

Pain to stop the agony By Alana Mitchelson PAKENHAM’S Jake Ward hopes to raise more than $50,000 for breast cancer research next month by challenging himself to a 1500-kilometre run over 30 days from the Gold Coast to Cranbourne. This will be Jake’s third campaign raising funds and awareness for the National Breast Cancer Foundation, a charity he holds close to his heart after breast cancer took the lives of his aunt and cousin. He ran 110 kilometres across the City of Casey to raise about $8000 in 2013, before undertaking a 16-day 1000-kilometre journey from Sydney to Cranbourne, raising more than $40,000 the following year. Jake received a significant boost to his current fund-raising efforts on Sunday 16 October when his fatherin-law Andrew Brown, from Andrew’s Autos, single-handedly donated $5000. Mr Brown held a car show with a barbecue and raffles that contributed a further $1700 towards his son-inlaw’s cause. “It all started off when my cousin Samantha passed away from breast cancer. She was only 31 at the time,“ Jake said. “A few years after that, my aunty on the other side of my family had breast cancer and passed away during recovery. “This year I’m aiming to raise $51,725.95. It’s a very precise figure because it would mean that across three campaigns, I would have raised an overall total of $100,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.“ Recently friends of his jazzed up a car, loaned from Andrew’s Autos, that will drive alongside Jake as he runs 50 kilometres a day for 30 days straight

next month. “I feel like a little kid before Christmas at the moment,“ Jake said. “While most people are enjoying the day off on November 1 over the long weekend, I’ll be beginning my run. “I play football all year, I lift weights and go to the gym, but the preparation is just about building up mentally. There’s only so much running you can do. “As I learned during the Sydney

to Melbourne run, although I trained three to four times a day in the leadup, on the fourth day my body broke down and if I hadn’t prepared mentally it could’ve been over after 200 kilometres.“ Jake is expected to finish his run at about 4pm on Wednesday 30 November at Cherryhills Drive, Cranbourne. He has so far raised about $18,000 for charity. “I am absolutely so appreciative of every single dollar people donate. I

No cheer here - it’s a fun-free Christmas From front page Ms Santo recalled Pakenham’s Main Street being decorated during the Christmas season some 25 years ago. “I remember us having a steel frame in the shape of a Christmas tree,” she said. “Decorations would attract more people to the town. It would be nice to have Christmas lights and to make the street look like Christmas time for the kids. “I have multicultural kids from different religious backgrounds come into my shop during Christmas time just to see my Christmas tree.” Jeff’s Main Street Meats owner Jeff Gatt said he did not agree that street decorations would significantly affect business. “Realistically, any kind of street decorations wouldn’t help my busi-

ness. We put up our own decorations in the shop window,” Mr Gatt said. “But I think we should get a Santa in Main Street handing out lollies. I think that would bring more people to Main Street during the Christmas season.” Council candidate Vanessa Marie Van Gramberg, contesting for a Central Ward seat, listed the shire’s lack of Christmas decorations as a main election issue in her official candidate statement within the ballot pack material mailed out to voters. “Christmas decorations may appear to not be a priority for some, however it is for many residents I’ve spoken to and also to some business owners,” Ms Van Gramberg said. “Council should not ignore Christmas as it is the nation’s most significant cultural event. We do have Christmas Carols but that does noth-

ing for the local streetscape and only lasts a few hours. “Councils have to utilise ratepayer funds wisely and this is a wise investment in the local community and economy.” Ms Van Gramberg said the council had approved two art sculptures for Main Street costing $80,000, but had refused Rosa Santo $300 towards her Christmas float this year. “I would like to see a big Christmas tree in Pakenham,” she said. “With concerns about crime, homelessness and the lack of local job opportunities, people want some joy and Christmas can uplift a community and bring it together.” A Beaconsfield business lodged a petition with the council last year seeking Christmas decorations for the town.

But after consultation with businesses across the shire, the council received minimal interest from business groups and shop owners. “Even the original business who lodged the petition didn’t respond to the council,” Ranges Ward councillor Brett Owen said. “The only feedback we did receive was that it’s probably the role of businesses to decorate their shop fronts. “If things have changed, maybe this is something the new council can revisit.” A previous council report estimated that $150,000 to $200,000 would be required to provide Christmas decorations to all townships in the shire, including about $19,000 for banners on street poles in Pakenham’s Main Street that may need to be replaced after several years.

YOUTHS who continue to seriously offend while out on bail may be publicly named and refused bail as part of a controversial State Opposition policy targeted squarely at gangs including Apex. Under 18s facing criminal charges cannot be named under current laws, however the Opposition has announced it will release their so-called ‘name and shame’ policy in the interest of the public and their “right to know” in the next six months. Juvenile offenders would also lose the right to request bail and be automatically remanded for repeat offending. However, the Minister for Police Lisa Neville and police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton have flagged concerns with the proposal, suggesting some young offenders thrive on notoriety, and naming them might further fuel their criminal behaviour. “These young offenders enjoy the notoriety of their offending and the evidence suggests that ’naming and shaming’ them would not be a deterrence, but would actually encourage more offending,” Ms Neville said. “We need to make sure that any interventions are reducing crime, not increasing it.” Shadow Attorney-General John Pesutto MP said the Opposition was yet to work through the detail, but suggested offenders from the age of 16 who committed serious offences twice or more while on bail would be subject to the policy. It proposes to give the courts the power to identify the youth, and refuse bail. “These are older youths who are expected to know full well the difference between violent wrongdoings and other acts,” he said. Earlier this year, the government softened its youth bail laws so minors who breached bail conditions would not be penalised. “We want to stop the revolving door of justice which sees this type of offender out committing home invasions and carjacking get bail only to breach it again,” Mr Pesutto said. In Cardinia Shire, aggravated burglary rates have almost tripled in the past year. The area was hit with a huge 166 per cent increase in home invasions, with 80 offences recorded this period compared with 30 in the last. The increase is hugely disproportionate to that experienced by the rest of Victoria, recording hikes more than four times the rate state-wide. The State Government currently has legislation before parliament which seeks to ensure young offenders who commit home invasions and carjackings are refused bail and face longer fail terms. “We currently have more young people on remand than ever because of police cracking down on this serious offending,” Ms Neville said. The Opposition is yet to formally discuss its policy with the courts.

Helping hand for little ones By Alana Mitchelson

Now nearly four years old, happy and healthy Amity McMurtrie, with her Picture: ROB CAREW mum Tia-Anne Ryan. 160731

Father Michael McMurtrie with Amity after her premature birth.

Ms Ryan said she gave back to the foundation by taking part in the annual Walk for Prems around Albert Park Lake every year. Now almost four years old, Amity is healthy and has a strong immune system. “You’d never know what she’s been through,� Ms Ryan said. “Amity’s always done the walk in her stroller, so this will be the first year where she will be walking with us which is exciting.� All funds raised from the walk on Sunday 23 October go to Life’s Little

only through the generous support of the community that Life’s Little Treasures Foundation can be there for these families as they face an emotional and uncertain journey," she said. “A $10 donation means we can provide one more family with a free copy of A Guiding Hand, with essential information for any family who finds themselves in the unknown world of a neonatal intensive care unit.“ Every year more than 48,000 babies are admitted into neonatal intensive and special care units across Australia. For more information, visit www.

Treasures Foundation, helping provide free support, education and understanding to families of premature-born babies. There will also be face painting, children’s entertainment, music, a jumping castle and amusement rides for the kids. Life’s Little Treasures Foundation chief, Susannah Morris, said the money raised would go towards providing more support, education and understanding to families in need, free of charge. “Without government funding, it is

PAKENHAM’S Tia-Anne Ryan had assumed that she would have her baby after nine months and was excited to become a mother for the first time. But her daughter, Amity, came along 14 weeks premature, weighing in at just 949 grams. The 24-year-old said she found herself in an alternate universe, rushing in and out of the hospital intensive care unit. “It was horrible,� Ms Ryan said. “Amity is my first child - I can’t even imagine having other children to look after while going through all of that. “I’d never heard of micro preemies. I think there’s a real lack of education about premature babies. “If it wasn’t for the hospital referring us to Life’s Little Treasures Foundation, we probably wouldn’t have had a lot of support.� Ms Ryan said the foundation provided her with a range of free education materials and put her in touch with other parents of prem babies facing similar challenges through family support groups. “After Amity’s birth, there was a really overwhelming amount of people who wanted to help us and the foundation gave us practical advice on what to say to friends and family members. “For example, asking for a homecooked meal rather than a gift, and other practical things that really helped us while we were in and out of hospital.�

He’s the working wounded By Cam Lucadou-Wells

Jason McDonald flanked by workmates Dan Young, Quin Griffin, Chris Harvey, Tony O'Donovan and Billy Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS Morrison. 160293 Within a year, he was back at basically full capacity and had successfully re-tested for his driver’s licence. Looking back, Mr McDonald remembers nothing of the accident. Even his first few gentle days back at work - initially just two hours a week - were a bit of a haze.

“When I got back, people (in the workshop) were always looking out for me. A few times I said to them I’ll be right.” With the help of a case manager and occupational rehabilitation provider, he was forced to take routine half-hour breaks to manage his heavy fatigue.

He made the decision to return to Seelite with his insurer’s reluctant blessing just three months after the crash - 12 weeks ahead of schedule. He initially worked for two hours a week on light duties, with breaks every 30 minutes.

He was diligently attending to up to four days of intensive rehabilitation sessions a week to heal his physical and mental demons. “It was pretty hard when you’re strong-willed like I am to take orders from doctors that you don’t know. “But I realised they know this stuff better than I do.” It was a new situation for his proud boss Mr O’Donovan - who applied his maxim of matching his workers’ tasks to their capabilities. His recollection of the crash is vivid. Workers were wondering why Mr McDonald wasn’t back from his lunch break, why police had closed local roads and a helicopter was hovering over the scene. The obvious and horrific conclusion soon dawned on Mr O’Donovan. Then he made that difficult call to Mr McDonald’s wife. “I believe he’s going to be OK but he’s gone by air ambulance to The Alfred,” Mr O’Donovan told her. More than a year later, when asked what he learnt through all this, Mr O’Donovan said: “Nothing is guaranteed.” The silver lining for his fully-recovered worker Mr McDonald is that he is becoming more self-aware. He uses meditation to help manage the moodiness that descends as part of his injuries. The wake-up call has made him put more priority on his family. He pays tribute to his wife who carried a great extra burden. To this day, he has not been able to resume karate with his two daughters and is not sure if he ever will. “I’m focusing on the important things in life. You never know what’s around the corner.”

JASON McDonald’s boss describes it as a “bloody horrible accident”. Soon after Mr McDonald left on a lunch run, he was critically injured when he was a passenger in a crash with a parked truck on Wedgewood Road, Hallam. He had taken the brunt of the impact - and who knew if and when he was going to return to his workplace Seelite Windows and Doors just 200 metres away. As police cordoned off the scene he was stretchered into an air ambulance and flown to The Alfred’s Intensive Care Unit. He had multiple fractures throughout his left side, a broken neck, internal bleeding and a serious head injury. At that stage - in June 2015 - Seelite production manager Tony O’Donovan was trying to calm his voice as he delivered the unsettling news to Mr McDonald’s wife. On 7 October this year, his worker was recognised as a finalist in the Worker Return to Work Achievement category in this year’s Worksafe Awards. It recognised Mr McDonald’s brave road back with the immense support of his employer, workmates, family and a crew of rehab helpers. Before his return, Mr McDonald had itchy feet. He says he hates sitting still - something he had to do a lot while recuperating at his Ringwood East home. He was restricted to a two-kilo lifting limit which barred him from even the most simple chores such as unpacking the washing machine, mowing the lawns or vacuuming. “I was ready to just sticky-tape my arm and come back,” he said.

IN HIS statement for re-election, the Mayor of Casey, Sam Aziz, claims that his opponents do not have a coherent plan for the future of this city; a city impacted by poker machine addiction, high population growth, and secret council meetings. One way to make Casey a richer city is to start combating poker machine addiction. A 20 per cent reduction in spending on poker machines means people in the south-eastern suburbs will have $25 million that can be spent elsewhere, such as starting up a business, travel, or investment for their future. Under Sam Aziz nothing has been done to stop the growth in poker machine addiction. But problem gambling is behind crime in Casey. More police and 24-hour police stations will only deal with the symptoms, not the underlying problem. My first step will be to join with other councils in launching an assault on the hotel and poker industry. John Glazebrook, Endeavour Hills.

WE CONGRATULATE Cranbourne businessman Mr Barry Drayton for advocating a change this month in the City of Casey coun-

cil election. He has brought out the facts about Bunjil Place. The erection of this incredibly expensive and totally unnecessary ego-boosting new building to enable current councillors (including the CEO and office personnel) to live in a workplace luxury and point out “I built that." We are sure that this luxurious, elaborate building could out beat Parliament House. He has also drawn on the area where the present mayor in particular is sensitive to any form of opinion and that they (the council) must remember that it is we, ratepayers who pay them their fat salaries. Also mentioned are the endless color shoots by the mayor, councillors and hierarchy of the council. Another waste of ratepayers' money. Where do you see or hear from these people during their tenure of service in the council? The time has come when the future of the City of Casey is in the hands of every ratepayer who must put every existing councillor last when completing the ballot paper. Ratepayers think before you vote. We need fresh blood for our new council. Dunstan Girton and Louis Kotsiras, Hampton Park.

Tagged a terrorist IT IS deplorable that the 'Council elections

2016, Campaign race row hits’ article (13 October) should be reporting the ugly spectre of 1950s McCarthyism in 2016 Australia. Talk about history repeating itself. In 1950s with America under the sway of McCarthy whole sections of society were under suspicion, the innocent reported then persecuted. Now we have Councillor Aziz reporting 26 people just for a tag on Facebook. It appears these days in Casey you don’t even have to say something to be reported as a potential terrorist. Is the next step thought police, or to report as a potential terrorist anybody who votes for the Springfield candidate Faisal Najibi? Meanwhile your newspaper ignores real issues such as the Narre Warren power station that could affect people’s health and their homes. Refer to my website https:// www.caseyre.org and the Narre Warren power station section for details. A person’s house and land can represent the largest financial investment they may make in their lifetime. For some in Casey that financial investment is threatened by the current operation of the Narre Warren power station, the EPA guidelines and failure of Casey Council to adhere to EPA guidelines. Garry Page, Candidate for Springfield Ward.

It’s None Of Our Business But ... THE Casey Cardinia Foundation has a wonderful opportunity, as charity partner for the Cranbourne GP Run, to raise funds for the community through coin collection. But the foundation needs about 50 volunteers to assist with coin collection throughout the three-hour event on this Saturday 22 October, in Cranbourne’s High Street. If you would like to make a local difference in your local community - and can make yourself available - the foundation would love to hear from you. Volunteers would be needed between 8am and 11am in Cranbourne, and will be issued with tins and visibility wear.

A car was parked squarely in the middle of two sought-after spaces outside Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on 17 October. Its personalised number plate started with

three letters - 'WTF’. AN EXCITABLE accused was meanwhile anxious to quiz people outside the court on the probity of the legal system. After posing for a selfie with another accused dressed in bold sunglasses and a gleaming suit, the man asked a bystander what did he think about the law. “It’s all in favour of the woman," he declared. The pair looked like they were dressed for the Flemington races but we assume he wouldn’t be bound for Oaks Day - the traditional ladies’ day.

Scream of security By Cam Lucadou-Wells BURGLARS must have got a rude shock when they were greeted by screaming alarms after breaking into a Hallam security company several weeks ago. Recorded on high-resolution CCTV, the group had arrived at Eclipse Security in a stolen white Toyota Kluger about 4.30am and jemmied the front door with a large crowbar. Within minutes, the burglars fled from the caterwauling alarms with a few items of little value from the showroom. Greg Flood, owner of Eclipse Security, was alerted via an i-Pad push-notification. Within five minutes, via an app, he was reviewing CCTV footage and sending images of the Kluger’s number plates to Narre Warren police. Unfortunately, for the sake of identification, the plates and vehicle were stolen and the intruders were shrouded by hoodies. The burglars had presumably been unaware of the nature of his business, which specialises in alarms, smoke machines, CCTV and other criminal deterrents, Mr Flood said. “It’s not like we have got things they can sell down the pub like phones or power tools.” In recent months - during a much publicised spate of home invasions in Casey - Eclipse Security has had a 20 per cent boom in customers. A nearby factory had been broken into twice in the past month. Eclipse had recorded footage of the offenders as it passed its business on both occasions - as well as catching large-scale litterers dumping in a

Greg Flood demonstrates one of the new popular lines of defence from intruders. 155443 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS nearby reserve on Centre Road. “Even people in commercial premises are becoming more focused on getting their security up to scratch. “Your run-in-the-mill methods are not going to deter people like the Apex Gang.” Mr Flood said the first step was to get a high-tech CCTV and alarm system, and put up signs to tell would-be intruders that the premises are secured. Police wouldn’t attend alarm ac-

tivations unless they were verified, Mr Flood said. New alarm systems sent realtime images of break-ins to the owner’s smartphone and can provide that proof to police. Loud alarms are the “second line of defence”, forcing burglars to flee before too much damage is done. Smoke machines can also deter intruders from ransacking a premises such as a pharmacy or a 24-hour servo. “Normally a burglar can fill up

their backpack and be out of there within minutes. But you can’t steal what you can’t see.” CCTV was now routinely highdefinition. Eclipse’s standard is BluRay quality, Mr Flood said. Mr Flood says Casey is relatively quiet for crime compared to other parts of the world such as South Africa. It was the rise of violent offences such as armed home invasions and the rising numbers of illegally held guns on the streets that was startling.

CLINICIANS at a Hampton Park medical precinct say footpath bollards are needed after a car mounted a parking area’s kerb and ploughed into a pharmacy’s display window. The large four-by-three metre window was shattered and shelving pushed across the shop floor by the vehicle at Nova Pharmacy off Stuart Avenue shortly before 7am on Monday 17 October. A 46-year-old Hampton Park woman is expected to receive a summons for careless driving, a Victoria Police spokeswoman said. Olivera Doder, manager of the neighbouring Southern Cross Medical Centre, heard the impact as she arrived at work. Ms Doder said the middle-aged driver was shaken but not injured by the crash. It seemed the driver had pressed the accelerator instead of the brake, but was unable to explain what happened. “She was just coming in to have a blood test this morning.” Ninety-degree parking spots are separated from the pharmacy and neighbouring clinics by just two metres of paved footpath. Julie from of the adjoining Dorevitch Pathology said pedestrians and patients needed to be protected by bollards. She said two vehicles had crashed into her clinic. Pharmacist Greg Clements said it had been 15 years since a similar crash into the pharmacy, but backed a call for protective bollards. Mr Clements said the damaged window was expected to be secured some time that day.

No ‘black dogs’ here HILLCREST Christian College took the opportunity to promote mental health to its students during Mental Health Week earlier this month. Hillcrest’s main focus was on their hard-working VCE students who are preparing for their final exams. “With all the pressure and studying, their mental health is paramount,” said Michelle Nye, director of the Discovery Centre (DC). “This whole week, we have given the students tools and exercises to deal with stress and anxiety.” Perhaps the most exciting event occurred on Wednesday,12 October when rescue dogs from Forever Friends Animal Rescue in Pakenham paid a visit. Volunteers from the animal rescue brought some lively dogs during lunchtime for the VCE students to enjoy. There was lots of belly rubs, patting and excitement ‘on hand’ for the foster dogs. “The students seemed to immediately de-stress and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the canine company,” said Germaine Moser, a discovery centre teacher at Hillcrest. Students also learnt about the benefits of adopting and fostering pets from the volunteers at Forever Friends Animal Rescue.

TWENTY wanted criminals are off the streets, thanks to the new Divisional Response Unit (DRU). Detective Senior Sergeant John Bergin established the 20-member unit at Dandenong police station in late August to tackle drug crime and fugitives in Greater Dandenong, Casey and Cardinia. “Since we’ve started, we’ve picked up 20 persons of interests with outstanding warrants,” he said. “A significant amount of them are from what’s appeared in the paper, 11 of them.” The crew has also hit drug trafficking hard. Police executed a warrant at a home in Ambrie Crescent, Noble Park, on Thursday 6 October. They uncovered a large quantity of ice, cannabis and a firearm, and charged a 27-year-old man with trafficking and possessing drugs of dependence and possessing a prohibited weapon. On Thursday 13 October, they executed warrants in Carlisle Road, Hallam, and uncovered cocaine, methamphetamine and illegal prescription medication. They charged a 22-year-old man with possessing and trafficking drugs of dependence. The following day, a warrant executed in Buckley Street, Noble Park, found heroin, cannabis, an imitation firearm and an “offensive weapon”. A 31-year-old man will answer charges of trafficking and possessing drugs of dependence, and possessing prohibited weapons. Det Sen Sgt Bergin encouraged residents to keep an eye out for signs of cannabis-producing, hydroponic grow houses and clandestine laboratories, generally used to manufacture ice. “We obviously rely on public information,” he said. He said observed patterns of times, dates, descriptions of cars, registrations, suspects and addresses could help police. “I think it’s fair to say that the whole division is impacted greatly by drug-related crime,” he said. “We’re hell-bent on targeting that.” He urged anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.

Riders, start your engines! By Victoria Stone-Meadows THE roar of motorbike engines will fill the air of Cranbourne on Saturday 22 October when the 18th Annual GP Run takes to the streets once again. What started out as a few bikes getting together for a ride, has grown over the years into a stream of thousands of motorbikes and a sea of colour parading towards the island. An annual Cranbourne tradition, the GP Run will see thousands of motorbikes rumble down High Street and onto the South Gippsland Highway headed for Phillip Island for the 2016 Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix. Held in conjunction with the City of Casey and the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix, the Cranbourne GP Run is

a sight to behold and an event not to be missed. The benefit of the day sees local businesses and charities showcase themselves and take advantage of the influx of tourists. Local charity, the Casey Cardinia Foundation is the official partner of this year’s GP Run and the bikes will be waved off by the Casey Young Citizen of the Year, Oliver Thomson. One of the largest events on the calendar for Cranbourne, the GP Run will attract thousands of locals and visitors from across the country to watch the bikes leave for Phillip Island. One and all are encouraged to attend this momentous event and there will be many activities on the day to keep every member of the family entertained.

Local food producers and storekeepers will be out in force to feed the crowds and there will be all manner of entertainment to make the day truly something special. Roads will be closed off early in the morning for the event and there will be heavy traffic management plans in place. The main activity hub of the festival will be centred on the South Gippsland Highway (High Street) in Cranbourne. The entertainment and activities kick off just after 8am on Saturday and the official wave off and run begin at 10am. Get your engines revving, your hearts pumping and your feet moving into Cranbourne for this motor-powered spectacular.

Casey Multi-faith Network's Pam Mamouney, Stephanie Saunders and Jim Reiher. 160729

Picture: CAM LUCADOU-WELLS

Award for keeping peace By Cam Lucadou-Wells A GROUP dedicated to promoting social harmony in Casey over the past decade has taken out a state multicultural award. Casey Multi-Faith Network received a Meritorious Service to the Community award as part of the Victorian Multicultural Awards for Excellence at Government House on 14 October. President Stephanie Saunders, 78, said the network aims to dispel mis-

conceptions about religious traditions and to foster greater understanding. In noting a recent flashpoint involving a proposed Narre Warren North mosque, she said there needed to be a “generational change” for that to occur in Casey. Ms Saunders is demonstrably unafraid of making a stand and staring down bigotry. She describes a moment at a Lyndhurst pub in which she confronted some young males who were racially taunting a family of diners.

“You’re spoiling my lunch,” Ms Saunders told them. Then the men “slinked off”, she recalls. Casey Multi-Faith Network has held tours of places of worship as well as hosted domestic violence forums and multi-faith concerts and art shows. Its members also broadcast a weekly radio program called Voices of Faith. There are plans to hold Ramadan evening meals for the community to

better understand the Islamic faith and to find ways to help young Muslim men have more involvement. Vice-president Pam Mamouney said that, subject to funding, there were plans for a sports event, service project, a barbecue and an overnight camp in Gippsland. “Discussions are taking place with a local Muslim business owner, youth leaders from other churches and Casey council.” Since its formation in 2007, the network has overcome early opposi-

tion from Casey Pastors Network and come to peace with the municipality’s traditional Christian churches. Former president Jim Reiher recalled that pastors were concerned that the multi-faith network could usurp the opening prayer spot at Casey council meetings. “We said we don’t want it but instead we got to say our faith statement after their prayer. “We just want people to live well together.”

A hand for mine victims By Cam Lucadou-Wells and Casey Neill DOVETON College students’ handiwork has made a profound difference for two landmine victims. The students, teamed with Dandenong South East Rotary Club, to fund-raise and then assemble two prosthetic hands in the college’s workshop on 18 October. Rotarian Don Cantwell said Rotary clubs in the area had now provided 40 hands in the Building Hands for Landmine Victims program, thanks to sponsorship from businesses and community groups. “There are estimated to be 384,000 people who have lost

one or both hands to landmines, and these are mostly children,” he said. “There are 120 million landmines still set in the world, mostly in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, and they are being cleared at a rate of only 100,000 per year. “At this rate, it will take 1200 years to clear all the mines! “If you lose your hands you lose your independence. “By fitting these hands, although not perfect, we restore some independence and hope.” The hands are supplied in kits of 10 priced at $4000, and it takes two people two hours to put them together. Each hand is sent to its re-

cipient with the name of the people who assembled it and the sponsor. “We are now getting emails from some of the victims who have some of our hands fitted, telling us what a difference it will make to their lives,” Mr Cantwell said. Doveton College teacher David Aird said students had organised two free-dress days to raise funds, which was boosted by a donation from Rotary. The project was part of an extensive student leadership program, he said. Rotary members also volunteer in Doveton College classrooms, including a sewing program and the college’s breakfast club for 80 students.

LIONS clubs members have pitched in to help out a Hampton Park family. The day-long working bee was a godsend for the Youngs, who have gone through a living hell with their 13-year-old son and brother Connor. For the past four months, the family has been crowd-funding for vital equipment for Connor. He requires $40,000 for a new wheelchair, a comfortable chair for relaxation, a hydraulic ramp for the family car, a modified car seat and a shower chair to live full-time at home. Aside from visiting his family once a week, Connor is mainly confined to respite care in Seaford. Narre Warren Lions Club president Lorraine Riches said the service clubs, in hearing of Connor’s plight, didn’t have the required funds to directly help.

But members still pitched in to lift the family’s spirits. On 11 September, members from four Lions and Lionesses Clubs in Narre Warren, Endeavour Hills and Hampton Park held a day-long working bee to clean out and weeds in the Youngs’ overgrown backyard. The clubs also invited one of Connor’s sisters Caitlin on a school holiday camp at Licola, and donated a family pass to Myuna Farm. Connor’s mum Belinda was full of praise for the Lions members’ “amazing” kindness which has cleared the backyard for the kids to play in. “It’s a weight lifted off my husband and my shoulders. We just didn’t have time to sort it out.” It was a lift for the family, not least Connor who endures a “shopping list” of medical conditions.

Connor can neither walk nor talk due to debilitating cerebral palsy. He stays six days a week at a respite house because he can no longer be lifted manually into bed, the car, bath, shower and his wheelchair due to his spinal fusion. Life-saving surgery was required in April due to his spine collapsing at a 133-degree angle over six months. Connor’s head had become fixed in a horizontal plane; he couldn’t keep food down due to the spine cramping his stomach and other organs. After a procedure Connor’s spine was fused so he nearly sits upright (at 66 degrees). His improved posture has meant he has “outgrown” his wheelchair and car seat.

The day will kick off with a child friendly event, Trick or Treat Spectacular, from 3pm to 6pm. Children can come dressed up as their favourite character and trick or treat safely along a 1km trail, featuring spooky but friendly characters, entertainment and activities, with lollies included. The scare-factor will then go up a notch for Halloween Scare Park from 7pm to 10.30pm, recommended for people aged 14 and over. This event will include a terrifying 1km walking ghost train experience, live music, dancers, sound and light display, as well as food trucks and vendors. City of Casey CEO Mike Tyler encouraged residents to join in the Halloween fun at WBPB. “WBPB will be transformed into a spooky botanic playground, with Halloween fun for all ages throughout the afternoon and evening. “The day will kick off with the ultimate family friendly trick or treat experience, before the seri-

ously scary, yet seriously fun, Halloween Scare Park at night. “Those aged 18-plus also have the option to become a paranormal investigator for the night under the guidance of professional investigators from Aussiedownunder Paranormal Investigation. You can learn about equipment, techniques and analysis while conducting a live investigation. “There will also be a pumpkin carving competition to coincide with the event, where entrants can drop-off their creation to WBPB before 3pm on the day to go before the judges. This is a great opportunity for residents to give pumpkin carving a go, with the winner receiving a Volkswagen for a weekend and accommodation for one night, thanks to sponsor Berwick Volkswagen.” For further details on the two events, the Paranormal Investigation and the pumpkin carving competition visit www.casey.vic.gov. au/wbpb or call WBPB on 9707 5818. Tickets to Trick or Treat Spectacular cost $10 per child and adults are free, while Scare Park costs $20 per person. For tickets visit www. trybooking.com/MQOA.

Fascinated by hats By Alana Mitchelson ERIN Tucker’s fascinators will be among local milliners’ hair accessories featured at the inaugural Pakenham Millinery Showcase this week. Ms Tucker has hand made fascinators for the past five-and-a-half years and currently works from her Beaconsfield home studio under her label Erin Bridget Millinery. This year is the first time she has launched a spring and summer collection. Ms Tucker has always loved hats and remembers going to the races from a young age with her family and being in awe of the women dolled up in beautiful dresses and hats. “I started going to race meets as a teenager and began making my own hats without know-

ing what I was doing before studying under the mentoring of famous Melbourne milliner Richard Nylon,” she said. “This is peak time of year for us but there aren’t many opportunities for milliners, particularly locally, to get their work out there and known. “I think an event like this is a great way for us to display local works from milliners. “It has the potential to grow, especially with Pakenham Racing Club’s amazing new facilities, and become an annual event in the lead up to the spring carnival.” Ms Tucker said the latest trends in millinery include boater hats, crowns, leather headband, lace, metallics and bright floral colours. “I know there are certainly lots of ladies who

like getting dressed up at Pakenham Racing Club events,” she said. “Women may have a dress and want to design a one-off head piece to match their outfit perfectly.” In addition to Erin Bridget Millinery, local milliners Ash Grey Millinery, Artisan Millinery and Hats by Belle will also be featured at stalls outside the members’ area at Pakenham Racing Club. The Millinery Showcase is from 6pm to 9.30pm on Thursday 20 October to coincide with the Melbourne Cup tour race meeting in Pakenham.

CHARACTER, CHARM AND POTENTIAL

PAKENHAM

FROM PAGE 1 CONSTRUCTED about 1926 by the Bourke family, prominent graziers and horse racing identities, this large weatherboard home with broad timber decked return verandahs is a prominent Pakenham landmark. Set among mature oak trees in what would have been a very fine garden, the 5820 square metre allotment provides an elegant backdrop to what is still a very striking residence. The interior - with 10-foot ceilings and wide timber panelled passageways - has four generously proportioned bedrooms, plus study and two stately living rooms complete with original fireplaces, ornamental ceiling and with double hung sash windows throughout. The country-style eat-in kitchen still has the original combustion stove in place, plus family bathroom and sun room. The original racing stables are still in place. The property offers a unique opportunity to be restored to its former glory, or further development, subject to approvals. Ideally positioned for access to the M1 Freeway, public transport and major shopping and services.

PERFECT FOR SMALLER BLOCKS EVERY child needs a backyard to play in; however it is extremely difficult to combine the cost of a big block of land, and a big house at an affordable price. The Colchester 300E by RMS Homes is the perfect solution as this clever design combines four bedrooms, study nook, two separate living areas, a huge alfresco area complete with outdoor kitchen, patio blinds and barbecue ideal for outside living, and all capable of fitting on a 12.5m wide x 30m long block of land, leaving plenty of space for the kids to play. As with all RMS designs, it features the incredible “TurnKey Essential“ inclusions such as stone benchtops to kitchen, ensuite and bathroom; ducted heating, air conditioning, carpets and fully tiled living areas, fully fitted out wardrobes, window furnishings, 900mm stainless steel appliances and dishwasher. But that’s not all - the inclusions don’t stop inside, with fencing, landscaping, fully concreted driveway and path, clothesline and letterbox all completing the ultimate turnkey package. Take a look at RMS Homes’ huge range of home designs by going to their website. They have many options available with plans starting from a tiny 8 squares up to a whopping 60 squares and everything in between. RMS Homes is the only builder that includes everything in their entire home design range so you can literally put your key in the door, move in your furniture and start living straight away without the burden of completing items yourself.

The great thing about RMS Homes is they don’t have ‘starting prices’ - they have ‘finished prices’ so you know up front how much your selected new RMS home is going to cost before you hand over any of your hard earned money. Right now RMS Homes are offering their customers ’$500 full deposit’ on all of their designs with no more to pay until construction starts, a real money saver for those customers with their own land already. Colchester 300E As Displayed - $323,900 Website: www.rmshomes.com.au DISPLAY: 5 Clovelly Way Officer (Timbertop Display Village) Contact: 1800 663 853 or 0450 669 303

WHAT’S DRIVING REAL ESTATE PRICES UP? The real estate market across the state has been very strong over the past 2 years. This has seen prices push up strongly in the inner Melbourne market, which is now flowing through to the outer suburbs, including Pakenham. Prices being paid for homes and land locally have jumped over the past 6 months as demand continues to increase for home ownership. So what is driving this price increase? One reason is the shortage of homes being offered for sale. This time last year, almost 1,300 homes were taken to auction in Victoria, however this year we only had about 930 properties go to auction. The clearance rate was about 80%, which is high. The number of homes on the market in Pakenham is well down from previous highs, yet we have a rising population who have to live somewhere.

PAKENHAM 21 PARAMOUNT WAY

Other drivers are low interest rates, market confidence, a strong economy

This renovated home is simply unique. Open plan kitchen with an outlook of the entertaining area. A split system air con. The second dwelling is ideal for an elderly parent, teenage escape or man cave. A kitchenette, dining area, living area, bedroom. An outdoor entertaining area that’s enclosed and fully decked with a pond will provide peace and tranquillity all year around.

and a shortage of new land releases. There is a strong appetite from buyers for land to build their dream home on. Currently, there is not enough new land releases to keep up with the demand. As a result, developers are charging more for blocks of land, which is seeing the established housing market rise proportionately. There has never been a better time to sell and market conditions are as good as they have ever been if you are looking to achieve a super price. If you would like more details or would like to find out what your home is worth, please call Rod Capuano at O’Brien Real Estate Pakenham on 5940 4044.

The Great Outdoors

A Star Advertising Feature

It’s official - it’s time to get out there

A blaze of colour at Emerald Lake. 160661 savings days. The visitor centre is open 10am to 4pm daily. Admission is free except when

there are special events at the park. Only minutes from the Monash Freeway, the park, 39 hectares or natural botanic wonders, attracts local and

international visitors and is sanctuary to an abundance of native animals. Perched on the edge of the basalt lake, the birdhide provides the perfect

cover for bird watching. The directional marker on the cliff above identifies panoramic highlights of Berwick and beyond. There are plenty of great picnic areas at the park, perfect for a barbecue with friends and the playground is popular with kids. Many enjoy the wonderful walking tracks around the picturesque lakes. Wandering through the grounds of the Botanic Park it is difficult to imagine the site was an operational quarry until the late 1970s. The quarry was founded by William Wilson in 1859. Mr Wilson recognised a business opportunity and began excavating the site, which would soon become renowned for producing some of the highest quality basalt in the Melbourne region. The transformation of the quarry site began in the late 1980s when work was started by the then City of Berwick. In 1992, the Honourable Bill Hayden AC, as Governor-General, officially opened the park, which is dedicated to the memory of early pioneers. A fossil seam is not something commonly found in a botanic garden or park, but Wilson Botanic Park Berwick is lucky enough to have two. The fossil sites, which have been studied by universities across Australia, boast both tropical and temperate species. It is rare to find these varieties in one place. Such evidence reveals that the site was tropical rainforest many years ago.

WITH the weather finally warming up, it’s time to get out into the great outdoors and enjoy what the region offers. Emerald Lake Park is always a good starting point. Situated in the heart of Emerald in the Dandenong Ranges, it’s just up the road, approximately one hour’s drive east of the Melbourne CBD. As one of the destination points for the iconic Puffing Billy, the park offers a range of activities including picnics, walking trails, paddleboats and fishing – something for everyone. It’s a ‘park for all seasons’ where visitors can seek relief from the summer heat under the cool established trees or enjoy a splash in the wading pool. In autumn, they can enjoy the old favourite ‘shuffle’ through fallen leaves and the spectacular display of autumnal colours. Then brisk walks through misty mornings in the wintertime are followed by the joy of spring flowers and the arrival of ducklings and moorchicks. The park, open every day of the year except Christmas Day and CFA code red and extreme fire danger days, also features the Nobelius Heritage Park and Emerald Museum which is open to the public. Or you could try somewhere a little closer to home and head to the Wilson Botanic Park at Berwick, 668 Princes Highway Berwick. Wilson Botanic Park is open every day except Christmas Day and Good Friday (and code red fire danger days) 7am-9pm during daylight

Support for patients, caregivers PASTORAL Services is a highly valued service offered at St John of God Berwick Hospital. During Pastoral Services Week from 16-22 October the hospital is aiming to raise awareness of this incredible source of support at the hospital and clear up exactly what Pastoral Services is. It is not uncommon when in hospital to feel worried or anxious. Pastoral Services can help address patients’ concerns such as their current or future health, their family and loved ones, their home situation, death and dying, faith and spirituality, among other issues. Pastoral Services is different to counselling and social work because it focuses on being a listening, attentive and compassionate presence, walking with patients on their journey. This may involve specific religious needs or general emotional/spiritual support. Counselling sessions tend to be in a regular sequence for in-depth discussion of specific issues. Social workers also address social and practical support issues, assisting people to access available services. Pastoral Services is not all about religion. The aim is to offer open-minded, attentive conversations and provide support according to the patient’s belief system. The team is skilled at providing resources for spiritual and emotional wellbeing, meditation and relaxation, and offering music and rituals to mark significant events as required.

BUSINESS SOUTH-EAST

New hub for youth By Victoria Stone-Meadows AARON Garth from Ultimate Youth Worker was the lucky recipient of office space in the new Casey Cardinia Business Hub in Narre Warren. Mr Garth started his business in 2012 when he noticed a high turnover of staff in the youth services industry and he decided something needed to be done about it. “I started recognizing that a whole heap of my friends had left the youth sector,” he said. “When we started to ask about why it was general things like a lack of communication, lack of jobs, no ongoing support, and a lack of supervision and training. “So we decided to have look and see if anyone was trying to fix it and no one was.” It was through this gap in the market that Ultimate Youth Worker was born to help people in the youth services industry maintain a passion for the work and provide up-to-date training. Mr Garth and his colleagues provide supervision sessions, coaching, mentoring and clinical training such as youth mental health, first aid, and self-care to youth worker professionals to keep them engaged and enjoying their work. The business has expanded into different areas of Melbourne since it began and Mr Garth was looking for a new office space to help youth workers in new areas. “I was driving home one day and heard

about the competition for the Casey Cardinia Business Hub on the radio,” he said. “There was the potential to win a coworking space and a major prize of an office and I had to jump on it. “I knew the City of Casey has the largest youth population in Australia and there would be youth workers facing the same issues.” Although Ultimate Youth Worker has only been in Casey for a few months, Mr Garth said he has received great feedback from the people it has been working with. “We are getting positive feedback and found there was a real need for us here but the biggest issue is the lack of funding,” he said. “With most of the Government’s agendas of free market economy and defunding health and community services, there is going to be a much higher turnover in years to come.” Mr Garth said he enjoys working in Casey and is well on his way to staking a claim here for people in youth services who need a career boost. “We want longevity in the social sector,” he said. “The average youth worker lasts about five years and general social workers about eight, compared to nursing which is about 28 years. “For us it’s all about how we can we provide the support social workers need to have career longevity.”

More dollars for some good oil By Cam Lucadou-Wells

A HALLAM manufacturer is set to create 10 new full time jobs and expand its multi-million dollar export trade after landing a State Government grant. Australian Botanical Products received $250,000 towards buying and installing a fullyautomated filling line and vacuum filler as well as high-tech dispensing equipment. The company makes and exports essential oils, carrier oils, raw materials and fragrances for commercial and professional use. The investment is expected to more than double its export sales to $8 million in the next four years as a result. The grant is part of a Manufacturing Program that supports advanced manufacturing in Victoria. Grants of up to $500,000 have been provided for new technology at 12 other firms recently, which was expected to create 100 full-time jobs. Narre Warren North MP Luke Donnellan said the program would help Victoria “transition” towards an advanced manufacturing economy. “Manufacturing is a key employer of Melbourne’s south east. “Our funding is helping local businesses like Australian Botanical Products to diversify into new markets, workers transition into new jobs and to help our local communities survive and grow.” Details are at the Business Victoria website www.business.vic.gov.au/fimp or by calling 13 22 15.

Market in jubilee mode putting the spotlight on fun By Casey Neill MORE than 28,000 people flocked to Dandenong Market to celebrate its 150th birthday. The regional icon hosted jubilee celebrations on Sunday 16 October, featuring food, rides, entertainment and more. Louise Noy was among the revellers and was pleased to see a “very big crowd” show up for the occasion. “I’m glad that they’re recognising how it got where it is today,” she said. Her family was involved in the journey from livestock market to the huge variety of stalls on offer today. Louise’s grandfather Joseph had a dairy farm and sold his cows at the market. “Then when they retired, my dad (Hank) had his own farm as well and he used to take the cows there,” she said. “I was always there as a kid. “I moved away from the area, but I always went there when I was on holidays.

“It was always a place that I always wanted to go back and set up my own stall.” So 15 years ago, she did just that. “I have a huge range of dog treats. It’s a smorgasbord,” she said. Louise also stocks shampoos, collars, leads, and information on dogs. “I do know what I’m on about. I’m there to help you keep your dog happy and healthy. “I just love pets. “It was a hobby and then I went into it full time.” A statue unveiling will bring three months of Dandenong Market birthday celebrations to a close on Friday 4 November. The bronze sculpture by artist Anne Ross will reflect life in the market. The market kicked off festivities on 13 September with the launch of Dandenong Market: Celebrating 150 Years book and the official opening of Rosling Lane, a 20-metre historical mural.

‘Criminals’ bring badness By Cam Lucadou-Wells THE Escapees Theatre Company has tapped into the “badass” criminal underworld in their latest production. The play’s title Robin Deplace is in itself a neat play on words. It focuses on a hapless man who contemplates a criminal rampage to pay back a large debt to a mafia-like family. Soon this unemployed character’s life starts to intertwine with the family’s Don and a masked “supercriminal” King Crimson. There’s language, adult themes and violence warnings for this show, rated unsuitable for children. Robin Deplace is at Hallam Community Theatre, 74 Frawley Road, Hallam on 26-29 October, 7.30pm; $15 Details: escapeestc. com/

Gorilla dream comes true By Russell Bennett

Damien Belsham and Cameron Dixon are intertwined into the very fabric of the Pakenham Silverbacks. Sunday’s second straight championship win was a dream come true.

The victorious, all-conquering, Pakenham Silverbacks. what they were told to do when they were told to do it,” Martin, a Gridiron Victoria icon in his own right, said. “I made a promise to them at the start of the season - that they’d be better footballers at the end of the season than they were at the start. I’ve kept that promise.” Silverbacks offensive lineman and club co-founder Richie Howlett put into words after the game just what the back-toback championship victories mean to those who’ve been involved from the start. “We came out with something to prove - that last year wasn’t a fluke,” he said. “We didn’t just want to win we wanted to smash them.” And that, they did. Russell was instrumental as he had been all season - proving himself to be the best quarterback in Gridiron Victoria competition, and set for a professional career either in North America or Europe. “We thought we’d get an import quarterback because he could help impart some of his knowledge to our players,” Howlett said. “We thought a quarterback would be a mentor to our players and to everyone on the field, but when Kevin came down here we were just blown away. “When I made contact with him I’d seen footage of his college games and things like that, so I knew he was a successful player. I knew he was an athlete and he had so many years of experience playing the game at a high level that nobody else had. We knew he’d be good but it wasn’t until he came out here that we then realised how good he was - we weren’t really ready for that.” Next stop - Division 1.

the head as the second quarter wound down. He had his cage rattled and, even if only for a second, the Silverbacks were no longer on rock-solid ground. “Twenty four minutes of excellence, that’s all we need you know you’ve got it,” Martin said to the group at half-time. “I see it in everyone. It’s time to show them.” And show them, they did. Pakenham romped to a 43-8 win despite a penalty-ridden second half. The win was just as emphatic as they’d dreamed, and that dream had become a reality. “I’ve never had a season like this where we’ve gone undefeated,” Martin said. “I’ve said to a lot of people I don’t want another one, because the longer it went the more stress there was to continue winning. How would we deal with the let-down when or if we did lose? “All I said to these guys in pre-season, even before that, is that they got lucky last season and everyone knew it, but they had enough talent to dominate the league. That’s what they came out and did.” Kolinski was named MVP of the championship game after his outstanding performance on the defensive end, but this truly was a whole team performance. In the delay prior to the start of the game, Martin went around the Silverbacks’ changeroom and asked each player what the team meant to them. The sheer emotion stemming from some of the biggest men in the room showed just what it all meant. “They bought into everything - they put up with my grumpiness, they backed away when I was at my worst, but they bought in and they just did

“WIN it, and become a brotherhood so in 40 years when someone is walking down the street in Pakenham, or Washington and you hear a brother’s voice, you have a connection straight away again.” Pakenham Silverbacks coach Mel Martin has been involved in the sport of gridiron at a grassroots level for three decades, but what his team accomplished on Sunday at Lakeside Stadium in Albert Park was like nothing he’d ever experienced before - a perfect, undefeated season. All of the pressure was on the Pakenham side heading into its 2016 campaign. It was on a hiding to nothing. On the one hand, last season’s fairytale championship win was viewed by many around the state as a fluke. To make it truly count in the eyes of those outsiders, Pakenham had to back it up this year. And with every win, the pressure intensified. The Silverbacks stormed through the regular season with a 12-0 record and at that stage the jungle drums were beating so loud they were practically deafening. So many people were just waiting for the kings of the jungle to fall. There was an incredible amount of nervous energy leading into Sunday’s game and it threatened to boil over when the Division 2 decider started more than an hour behind time - inexplicably due to some missing equipment on the biggest day of the season. The Silverbacks warmed up twice in that time, and cooled down again. And when kick-off finally arrived, the Pakenham side started flat. It was star quarterback Kevin Russell’s last game in Silverbacks colours and he was faced with some immense defensive pressure early. The Northern Raiders had nothing to lose and they came out breathing fire from the outset. But as the quarter wore on, Russell’s quality shone - finding Jason Howlett in the endzone before Aaron Verbakel recovered a miscued snap to run in the extra two points. The Silverbacks took an 8-0 lead into the second and stretched that to 28-0 just before the half. Then, a 10 second lapse proved costly as the Raiders crossed for a touchdown of their own to cut the margin back to 28-6. Russell had played a sensational half, while Adam Kolinski was even more influential on the defensive end. But the Pakenham quarterback was rocked with a hit to

Bulls take charge of it all By Russell Bennett WEST GIPPSLAND CRICKET ASSOCIATION CARDINIA’S clash with Kooweerup on Saturday was the (extremely) early front-runner for the ‘game of the year’ title after a superb 94-run sixth-wicket partnership between former Cranbourne batsman Ben Maroney and young gun Travis Wheller steered their side to victory. There’s a 20-year age gap between the pair but they both displayed incredible calmness and maturity despite coming together at 5/104 chasing 200 for a memorable win. The Demons won the toss and elected to bat and openers Chris O’Hara and former Bulls coach Mark Cooper put on an ominous 111-run stand for the opening wicket before the former was run out for the second time in as many games (for 61) and the latter was stumped advancing down the wicket by Ben Parrott off Dwayne Doig for 49. But despite the strong partnership, the Demons weren’t able to assert their authority with a particularly strong run-rate on an E. Gunton Reserve surface that - while looking its lush, pristine best - seemed to play much quicker than normal. Chris Bright (24) and the in-form Ben Spicer (34) both looked to pick up the pace later in the innings, and at 6/200 after their 40 overs the Demons seemed to have the runs on the board for victory. Jess Mathers bowled Bulls opener Pat Nolen early in the side’s chase with an absolute peach but the 41-run stand between Alex Nooy (28) and skipper Neil Barfuss (26) that followed helped set the side well on the path to victory. Nooy, in particular, looked in ominous touch before being left shocked by an LBW decision off the bowling of young Demon speedster Jason Cox.

Ben Maroney had a significant impact with both bat and ball on Saturday against Kooweerup. 160574 Matt Davey snared Barfuss, while Cox struck again to remove Kim Bentick for 24 thanks to an absolute rip-snorter of a diving catch by Cody Miller who bowled Ricky Campbell shortly after. That set the scene for the partnership of the year so far. While Maroney (58 not out) kept the scoreboard ticking over through clever footwork and looking to score off practically every

ball, Wheller (43) went large - particularly square of the wicket off anything short. Maroney played the exact type of innings that his side needed most and it was clearly his best in Bulls colours so far, while Wheller’s knock could prove to be the making of him despite being dismissed at 6/198 - within just three runs of victory. The Bulls ultimately got home with

four balls to spare, with Cox (2/17) and Miller (2/28) the multiple wickettakers for the Demons. Tooradin, meanwhile, received a much-needed confidence boost in the lead-up to their clash with Cardinia with a nine-wicket thumping of Emerald at Chandler Reserve in Avonsleigh; Pakenham easily had the better of Pakenham Upper-Toomuc at Toomuc Reserve; and Upper Beaconsfield re-

Personal best times for Randle NARRE WARREN North rising star Thomas Randle has enjoyed a comprehensive two-day test driving a Comtec Racing Formula V8 3.5 (formerly Formula Renault 3.5) at Spain’s Circuit de Valencia earlier this week. Randle’s test was in preparation for his debut in the high-speed open wheel championship, which will take place at Spain’s Jerez circuit during the weekend of 28-30 October. During the course of the two-day program, Randle completed over 100 laps, performed practice starts and completed pit stop simulations, lapping the 4.070k circuit over six seconds faster than he did while driving a FIA European Formula 3 specification car at the same venue late last year. “Driving the car was just phenomenal and the power was incredible, it just keeps on accelerating,” Randle said. “It was very similar to the feeling I got from the Saab Sports Sedan. My head was getting lifted up from the wind I was going that fast; around 280 kph on the approach to turn one. The grip on new tyres was unbelievable and I was reaching 215 kph minimum speed through the first corner which felt incredible, and pulling almost 3Gs laterally. It did take some time getting used to how quickly I could apply the throttle and had a few wheel-spin

Narre Warren North’s Thomas Randle is continuing his rapid rise through the world of motorsport. Picture: SUPPLIED moments here and there. “I felt I acclimatised to the speed of the car fairly quickly. The main thing I worked on was trying to slow everything down in my brain when

everything was actually happening so quickly. The carbon brakes were another area I had to get used to as the first two laps you have virtually no brakes at all until they

warm up, but once they have heat in them they’re very aggressive and the braking distances very short. It was great to be back at Valencia, a track which I already have the knowledge of, and I was running six seconds a lap faster than the times I did in there in F3. My fastest lap in the F3 was 1:25.7 and I did a 1:19.7 in this car, completing around 100 laps over the two days. “I feel very fortunate to have been given this amazing opportunity by Comtec Racing. It is easily the fastest and best race car I have ever driven with cornering speeds way in excess of anything I’ve ever experienced. Doing my first pit stops and starts was fun and using DRS was a new experience. I am so thankful to Josh Webb from Webb Performance for putting together a great training regime for me and I was able to last both days with little physical issue. I’m really looking forward to Jerez and hoping to continue learning more and more about the car and its capabilities, and also establishing just how close we really are to the pace of the competition." Phil Blow, Team Manager at Comtec Racing, said: “Thomas settled in really well and we covered off a lot of things such as pit stops and practice starts and he took everything in his stride. Within only a handful of laps he was straight down to very competitive times, so we’re all really looking forward to Jerez."

mains undefeated after a strong showing against Merinda Park. At District level, a dominant 88 not out from Kane Latham steered Tooradin to a 10-wicket win over Carlisle Park; Kalgidhar stormed to victory over Clyde off the back of 131 not out from Pardeep Singh; and Devon Meadows and Officer easily accounted for Cranbourne Meadows and Nar Nar Goon/Maryknoll respectively.

�� Reviews and news…

Muscle Holden’s beef up By Ewan Kennedy SADLY, the VF Commodore Series II is likely to be the last ever Holden family car made in Australia, though Holden may surprise us by introducing a further update in the next 12 months. However, the VF II SSV Redline sedan we tested last week has the final major upgrades and any future versions are likely to be minor dress-ups perhaps with special editions. Given Australians love of driving it comes as no surprise that sales of the sporty Commodore models – SV6, SS, SSV and SSV Redline – are now making up more than half of all Commodore sales. This gave us a great excuse to road test an SSV Redline powered by a Chevrolet LS3 6.2-litre V8. Yep, the big engine… OK, it’s a cliche – but there’s no substitute for cubic inches and we loved every minute we spent in the big Aussie bruiser, not only in the way the engine performs, but also in the sophisticated dynamics that keep all that power under control. Exterior design changes on the VF to make it the VFII are minor and are chiefly functional, being there for improved aerodynamics and the additional cooling requirements of the more powerful engine. Air vents on the bonnet assist the release of hot air from the engine bay,

they also give the car a more aggressive look. Large corner fascia ducts have been added to channel air away from the front of the car. Our test car had the most powerful non-HSV Commodore engine ever produced. With 304 kW and 570 Nm the LS3 has significantly more power and torque than the 6.0-litre it replaced, not that 270 kW and 530 Nm in the superseded VF was anything to sneeze at. All that grunt goes the back wheels by way of either a six-speed manual or some sort of an automatic transmission – we didn’t ask about the latter when offered a test drive by Holden. Commodore VFII has GM’s MyLink system that works with smartphones through Bluetooth. USB and Aux ports are also installed. We have to admit to spending our time listening to the engine rather than to testing the audio output. Anyone who drives a car like this high-performance Holden should know what they are doing behind the wheel. There are huge reserves of safety thanks to the well-tuned suspension and excellent brakes. Selectable electronic overrides are there should you make small to medium mistakes. Should something come unstuck in a big way Holden engineers

Big power Chevrolet LS3 V8 engine is the key to the hottest Holden ever. have ensured their car got a five-star ANCAP rating. We have been complaining about the visibility problems created by toowide A-pillars for many years. Obviously nothing is going to be done about this in the future, so we have no choice but to continue to live with it. This is the quite simply the quickest non-HSV Commodore ever, leaping from rest to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds. The clutch and gearbox aren’t exactly user-friendly, but that’s all part of

the fun in any US-based muscle car. The big V8 is supported by upgraded FE3 rear sports suspension aimed at improving ride comfort without affecting handling. Even when pushed hard through tight bends the hot Holden is well-balanced and stable. We managed some track driving at the historic Collingrove hillclimb during the VFII launch and pushing it to the limit never caused a moment’s doubt as to its ability to hang one. Our range-topping SSV Redline had Brembo brakes front and rear,

these can haul off speed very rapidly without any sign of fade. We didn’t do any track work but feel the brakes could even handle that. While performance is the number one demand by owners of V8s, the sounds the engine emit run a close second. Holden developed a component called the Baillie Tip. Named after the engineer who designed it, Dr David Baillie, it uses an aperture in the tailpipe to reverberate sound back through the exhaust and into the cabin. It sounds great and brought smiles to the faces of all who travelled in the big Commodore. Fuel consumption of the SSV Redline is listed at 11.8 litres per 100km on the combined cycle. We found our review car running in the mid-teens most of the time but it can be brought under 10 litres per 100 on motorways. With future Commodores likely to take the European route and be powered by four-cylinder turbo-petrols, and V6 turbo and non-turbo petrols we suggest that V8 lovers get their backsides into one of these high-performance VF Series II models.
