THE Cranbourne Salvation Army is encouraging everyone to donate what they can this festive season to help those less fortunate. The Salvation Army Christmas appeal gives to thousands of people every year whose Christmas celebrations would otherwise be left wanting. Cranbourne-based Major Robert Evans said Cranbourne in particular really benefited from the efforts of the community partnership with the Salvation Army. “We have a number of people approach us during Christmas and before who recognise they will be doing it tough, and seek assistance,” he said.

Major Evans said the Cranbourne area had a particularly high need for the services of the Salvation Army at this time of year. “We expect to help about 200 families this year and up to 500 individuals,” he said. “Statistically, Cranbourne has a higher level of social need because we have some of the highest rates of family violence and homelessness in the state and while they are not flattering figures, they reflect the depth of human need we deal with.” The Cranbourne Salvation Army contributes to those in the community through food hampers, toys and partnerships with businesses in the community. A donation to the Salvation Army Christmas appeal means

the more than 50 volunteers in the Cranbourne area can provide effective and much-needed assistance to the community. “I want to acknowledge the contribution of that community as it is critical to our ability to assist people in need over Christmas,” Major Evans said. “Their partnership over this time of the year and the donations of food and goods is invaluable, and I encourage people to give because giving what they give makes a real difference.” Donations can be made to The Salvation Army in Cranbourne via the Salvation Army website at or by calling 13 SALVOS (13 72 58) or at any Westpac Bank branch.

A special Santa for these autistic kids By Victoria Stone-Meadows CRANBOURNE Park Shopping Centre is offering families with children who have sensory challenges the chance to create precious memories with Santa Claus. The Sensitive Santa sessions at Cranbourne Park are available to any families whose children are hypersensitive to light and sounds. The sessions are held before the regular opening hours of the shopping centre to allow children to meet Santa away from the regular hustle and bustle of the centre. Alison Hellmuth brought her boys Oliver and Ashton to Cranbourne Park all the way from Phillip Island to have a session with the Sensitive Santa. Her older son Oliver was this year diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum, and Ms Hellmuth was worried that getting photos of her sons with Santa would not be possible. “Oliver’s on the spectrum, and he doesn’t like a lot of things that are different from his usual routine,” Ms Hellmuth said. “It was the first time we heard of Sensitive Santa and the first year he has got a diagnosis, so we thought we would give it a go.” Ms Hellmuth said the experience was one that she would rec-


ommend to any family whose children are hypersensitive. “For us, it was all about the time they got,” she said. “The time they got with Santa meant we were able to sit there with Ollie until he felt more confident to stand next to him, and he even sat for a minute once he had a bit more confidence.” “For any kid that has sensory issues or special needs or anything, I think it’s awesome.” For the first time the Hellmuth family were able to get a family photo with Santa where both the young boys were calm and relaxed. Ms Hellmuth said Santa’s helpers who spoke with her sons and kept them calm and collected made all the difference to the family’s experience. “We got a couple of really nice photos and even got a family one which we have never had before,” Ms Hellmuth said. “We got a photo of them reading next to Santa and sitting with Santa which was awesome; it was a really good experience.” The Sensitive Santa at Cranbourne Park Shopping Centre will be available for bookings on Sunday mornings from 8am - 10am before the centre opens on 4 December and 11 December.

Have a Christmas snap with Santa at Cranbourne Park Shopping Centre daily.

All Christmas needs covered

Oliver and Ashton meet the Sensitive Santa at Cranbourne Park Shopping Centre.

CRANBOURNE Park is the heart of Cranbourne, and this year it has all of your Christmas needs covered. Whether you’re looking for special gifts for the ones you love, shining stars to top your tree, a Christmas feast to fill your table or a special outfit for the big day from one of their many fashion retailers, it has everything you could possibly need to add a little sparkle to your Christmas. Santa is available for photographs daily until Christmas Eve 24 December, and you can find him located opposite the Commonwealth Bank. Cranbourne Park is also running a Sensitive Santa session this year; the program invites families with a child who has sensory challenges to have a photo with Santa without the common hustle and bustle and sensory overload.

Families can book an appointment when there is minimum noise before the shopping Centre opens to the public and have their child or children photographed with Santa in a safe and friendly environment. Bookings are essential. To make Christmas shopping even easier, Cranbourne Park will be open longer this year, so you can find the perfect gift, shiny decoration or delicious Chrissy dish at a time that suits you. The Salvation Army will be back again this year; for a gold coin donation the Salvation Army will perfectly prepare your presents with our gift wrapping service. All donations will go to the Salvation Army. For more information on Christmas at Cranbourne visit

Every Saturday and Sunday in December between 11am-2pm (last day Dec. 24)

CASEY Cardinia Libraries (CCL) has established forgiving trees at all its branches in the lead-up to Christmas. People are welcome to contribute items of food or unwrapped gifts for people in need of support. If donors have library fines, CCL will waive their fees in acknowledgement of their generosity. Casey Cardinia Libraries CEO Chris Buckingham said the forgiving tree was a golden opportunity for library members with overdue items or fines to wipe the slate clean and feel good about it. “This is the season for giving, and we want people across our community to know that if they pay it forward and help out others, we will return the favour,“ Mr Buckingham said. “We know Christmas is a time where lots of households are under pressure to make ends meet. As a public library service, we take great pride in providing useful and free services in safe welcoming places. By waiving fines and encouraging people to visit our libraries, we can bring people together and help celebrate the best things about community life in Casey Cardinia.“

Donated non-perishable food needs to have its packaging intact with best before dates in 2017.

Christmas gifts must be new and unwrapped. Participating libraries include Cranbourne, Doveton, Emerald, Endeavour Hills, Hampton Park, Narre Warren and Pakenham.

VICTORIA Police Family Violence Units are set for a shake-up and Family Violence officers from Casey, Cardinia and Greater Dandenong are not pleased with the proposed changes. On the back of the recommendations from the Royal Commission into Family Violence, Victoria Police is considering restructuring the Family Violence units. Anonymous informants from within Victoria Police have told Star News of a complaint lodged to the Victorian Police Association regarding the changes to the family violence units in Casey, Cardinia and Greater Dandenong. The Police Association of Victoria has confirmed there has been communication with them from aggrieved police members in the southern metropolitan region. Star understands the complaint outlines concerns from the officers that the potential restructure would see them lose their commuted overtime pay and officers on the family violence unit would be removed after six months. According to the 2011 Victoria Police EBA officers, who work irregular hours similar to a detective, such as those on the family violence units, are entitled to just over $10,000 per year in commuted overtime. The Victoria Police informants say they are concerned officers with experience in handling complex family violence issues will be removed from the units in favour of younger officers and cheaper overtime requirements. The informants have claimed an officer that has been on one of these units for six months is only eligible for $5000 of the commuted overtime. The anonymous informants have claimed that on 11 November this year, officers in the Casey, Cardinia and Greater Dandenong family Violence units were told officers working on the family violence units for more than six months were to be sent back to their original station and returned to uniform duties. Victoria Police Superintendent for the

Southern Metropolitan Region Paul Hollowood confirmed there were changes being considered for the family violence units in the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are looking at a whole lot of options around the Family Violence units,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing has officially been decided and we are looking a whole variety of options off the back of the Royal Commission recommendations and looking at what family violence approach we should be taking going forward.â&#x20AC;? Supt Hollowood said while changes were expected to the make-up of the family violence units within Victoria Police, it was not decided how that would affect officers' pay structures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The changes are all about increasing the number of police in the area,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be no changes to the pay structure at all, but how officers are paid depends at the end on what the composition of the units is going to be.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;In terms of the family violence units, it depends if they are comprised of detectives or other specialist resources but no decisions have been made and options are being looked at currently.â&#x20AC;? Victoria Police spokeswoman Sara-Jane Delaney confirmed there were a number of options for restructure under consideration, but nothing had been made official at this stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Local management are currently considering how to best offer policing service to family violence victims in the area,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want to continue to build their capacity and strengthen how they support family violence victims. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are engaging with both internal and external stakeholders, though no final plans have been made or approved at this time.â&#x20AC;? It remains unclear how long these options will be considered for before the changes to the Family Violence Units come into effect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to put schedule against it,â&#x20AC;? Supt Hollowood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are being actively looked at at the moment."

Layla’s little miracle By Victoria Stone-Meadows A COUPLE from Devon Meadows are celebrating the newfound life in their granddaughter after she received a miracle liver transplant. Terry and Elain Saxon are urging everyone to consider organ donation after their granddaughter finally underwent a life-saving liver transplant. Baby Layla was diagnosed with biliary atresia at just seven weeks old and was given six months to live if she did not receive a new liver. The awful disease that afflicted Layla is rare and only occurs in infants, causing the liver to malfunction and bile to damage the vital organ. At six months old, Layla has spent most of her life living at the Royal Children’s Hospital waiting on donor lists for an infant-sized liver. “Layla would not have survived unless she had that transplant and unfortunately she

needed a child-sized donation,” grandfather Terry said. “We are over the moon our little girl has received this donation but I would encourage people to look at the opportunities of registering themselves as a donor so they can see they will help others.” Grandmother Elain Saxon also said organ donation had the power to save many people’s lives, although it took a hard truth to realise it. “It is something that has been bought to our attention, unlike most people who have never been in this situation before,” she said. “We weren’t fully aware of the impact of the situation and I think you can say that it really has brought it home when we speak to people about the numbers and stats.” According to the organisation Donate Life, around 1500 people are on Australian organ transplant waiting lists at any time and one person can im-

AN ALLEGED disqualified driver - and his ‘ride home’ - are both facing charges after a police intercept in Cranbourne North. The first driver, a 22-year-old Narre Warren South man, was stopped in a silver Ford Focus by police on Berwick-Cranbourne Road about 1.40am on Tuesday. After being discovered as a disqualified driver, the man called a 26-year-old Narre Warren South woman to pick him up and take him home. A check revealed the woman’s licence was allegedly suspended, police said. The pair were then driven home by a 63-year-old Narre Warren South man. The Focus was impounded, costing the owner $1060. Police said the man and woman were expected to be charged with driving while disqualified and suspended respectively.

prove the life of 10 or more people. “When you see those sorts of stats and the impact it creates, going into the Royal Children’s is heart-breaking, it’s really something quite thoughtprovoking,” Mrs Saxon said. It is through this experience with their granddaughter that Terry and Elain Saxon are asking everyone to consider organ donation for themselves. “If you are thinking about it, discuss it with the family, discuss it and then be aware that one person can improve the life of 12 people,” Elain said. “It’s just a wonderful gift and it doesn’t take away or make a big difference - a lot of people aren’t aware of it, they think it’s a lot more gruesome than it is.” “My understanding is we are brought into the world to help each other and to choose not to is not what we normally do,” Terry said.

Community’s inside look at Islam By Victoria Stone-Meadows THE Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Berwick Chapter held an exhibition on Saturday 26 November at the Hampton Park Library showcasing the Quran. The exhibition not only displayed the holy book but also calligraphy and verses and question sessions for people to learn more about the Ahmadi teaching of the Islam faith. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has held a number of such exhibitions in the south-east suburbs to dispel the myths surrounding the Muslim faith. All members of the community were invited to the exhibition and given a chance to learn about the teachings of the Muslim faith and gain a better understanding of Islam. Mubashar Khalid, president of the Berwick Ahmadiyya community group, said the group want to bridge the divide between Muslims and other faiths. “Our objective to hold this Quran exhibition is to engage with the wider community and build bridges on common grounds and to spread Islam’s beautiful and peaceful teachings through these outlets of information and discussions.

TWO Honda trail bikes were stolen from a property in Cranbourne after thieves broke into the garage of a house on Central Parkway. Between 6.30am and 3.30pm on Friday 18 November, the two bikes, which were chained together, are believed to have been dragged from the property. Both trail bikes were red and white Honda CRS dirt bikes, one was a 250cc bike with registration 1699E and the other was a smaller unregistered 110cc. Police have released images of a white Ford Territory with a trailer that were caught on CCTV making a getaway from the scene of the crime. Anyone with any information relating to this incident is asked to contact Detective Senior Constable McAllister at Casey Crime Investigation Unit on 9705 3114 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Park rape guilty plea By Cam Lucadou-Wells A 20-YEAR-OLD man has accepted a community corrections order after pleading guilty to raping a teenage girl in a Cranbourne North park. Dale Mawer, who was 18 at the time, and his then 16-year-old victim had been walking together in the park near a party on the night of 7 February, 2015. In sentencing, Judge Mark Dean of the Victorian County Court said both had drank “substantial quantities” at the party and were “heavily intoxicated”. The girl’s friends discovered the pair

in the park after hearing the girl crying out, Judge Dean said. Mawer dressed and left the scene, the court heard. Judge Dean said he accepted the traumatic impact on the girl and her mother, as well as the distress to Mawer’s family. “This is a tragic case,” he told Mawer. “Much harm has been caused to the victim and to her family, and to those close to you and your family. “Alcohol abuse and the objectification of women played an all too com-

mon role in these events.” Mawer was to be punished, though also considered as a young first offender, the judge said. “Rape is an extremely serious offence. “Vulnerable young women must be protected from this kind of offending by the courts.” The court heard that Mawer was a talented sportsman, a former TAC Cup footballer for Sandringham Dragons, and a graduate of the Hallam Sports Academy with good character references.

By Victoria Stone-Meadows

He had no psychological illness but required treatment for alcohol abuse. Judge Dean accepted Mawer was “deeply remorseful” and had good prospects for rehabilitation. Prosecutors accepted that the sentence’s purpose could be fulfilled by a community corrections order, the judge noted. Mawer’s corrections order includes alcohol-abuse rehab, a sexual offenders’ program, 150 hours of unpaid work and supervision. He will be named on the state’s sexual offenders register for 15 years.

THE City of Casey has confirmed 19 dogs were removed from a property in Pearcedale on Monday 21 November, but remained tightlipped as to why. Council officers raided the property and removed dogs of various breeds from the premises in what council described as “part of an ongoing investigation.” While the council will not reveal why the dogs were removed from the property, they did confirm officers acted under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. “The investigation is ongoing and any further action will depend on the outcome of the investigation,” a spokesperson for City of Casey said. “Council will be in a position to provide a further update following the completion of the investigation.” At this stage City of Casey has not released where the dogs are being kept while they investigate, but the RSPCA said it had no involvement in this action. This incident follows a number of animal cruelty actions taken in the southern reaches of Casey in the last few years. On Friday 15 April 2016, RSPCA and Police officers searched a property in Blind Bight and found many dogs to be living in sub-standard conditions on the property. Similarly in 2013, a man in Cannons Creek was handed a 10-year ban from owning more than two dogs after an unregistered puppy farm was discovered on his property. Those who become aware of any actions that constitute animal cruelty can contact the Victorian RSPCA Inspectorate team on (03) 9224 222.

Wild cop chase By Aneeka Simonis POLICE are yet to find the naked driver at the centre of a wild and dangerous pursuit which shocked motorists travelling in the south-eastern suburbs on Tuesday. A teenage girl from Narre Warren, who was let out of the stolen getaway car in Pakenham, has been released by police pending further inquiries. The search for the driver last seen heading toward the Western Port Highway from Cranbourne continues. The pursuit began in Berwick about 10.10am on Tuesday 29 November, after police responded to a seemingly unstable naked man walking around a vacant block of land in Berwick. Witness footage shows the man get into a reportedly stolen white Toyota Hilux bearing false plates, and drive from the vacant block with the female teen in tow. The driver was picked up driving erratically on the Princes Freeway in Ber-

wick, forcing a large-scale police chase which involved more than half a dozen police cars and the air wing. Police pursued the car through Narre Warren, Pakenham and Berwick before terminating the pursuit in Cranbourne just after 11am. The car was last seen on Cranbourne-Frankston Road in Cranbourne heading towards the Western Port Highway. Casey Crime Investigation Unit (CIU) Detective Senior Constable Ray Gunton said a 19-year-old Narre Warren woman was in the car throughout the pursuit, but was let out in Pakenham. “It’s understood he was going to continue to drive and she was going to get out. She didn’t want to be involved in the matter any further,” he said. She was taken in for questioning, but has since been released pending further inquiries. At a media briefing after the in-

Police set up on Thompson Road, Sandhurst. cident, police would not confirm the pair’s relationship, but said the teen cooperated with police inquiries. At least two police cars were damaged in the wild pursuit. One was witnessed driving on Henry Road, Pakenham, with a damaged bumper, and another believed to be involved in the pursuit was towed away from Dandenong police station, covered in OC spray. Footage also shows the car colliding with a ute in Cranbourne. Det Sen Const Gunton said it was

lucky no-one was seriously injured. “It’s a great concern for us that this person has driven as erratically as he has. We ask this male to hand himself in to the nearest police station, so this matter can be resolved,” he said. The car was fitted with false registration plates: AKC 72. Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident or who may have any footage to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or file a confidential report at www

A COUPLE from Narre Warren have achieved a diamond milestone in their marriage that started out with a glimpse across a lawn. Bert Battin was working on a temporary basis at a factory in Clayton in the mid-1950s when he first caught sight of his future wife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was on holidays for a fortnight and I wanted some money to buy a car so my sister got me a temporary job at the Repco Forge in Clayton for two weeks,â&#x20AC;? Mr Battin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was having my lunch one day when a saw a redhead beauty running across the lawn and I thought â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wow, look at that, who is that?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Mr Battin first saw a young flame-headed Iso-

bel on a Monday but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cross paths with her again until the following pay day. Mr Battin again saw Isobel running across the lawn while he was lining up to receive his pay and learned her name in an unusual way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were lined up to get paid and I saw her again running across but this time I could hear the migrants yelling out to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Isabellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? Mr Battin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I turned to the young bloke next to me and asked him â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that girl? And he told me she had just come out to Australia from Scotland.â&#x20AC;? Mr Battin was so taken with the young Scottish lass he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even met that he knew from the exact moment he wanted to be with her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told the young bloke in line â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to marry herâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and he turned and said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;get out of here you little turd,

you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even work here.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? This exchange took place in October and the two didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet face to face until December the same year when Isobel popped over to visit Bertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I opened door and saw the red hair,â&#x20AC;? Mr Battin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;About a month later I ran into her again and we went out and that was it since then.â&#x20AC;? A year later, on 29 September 1956, the two lovebirds were married at the Presbyterian Church in Springvale. Since then the couple have shared a full life together including raising three kids in Shane, Christine, and Stuart, seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. The couple have said they had led a wonderful life together and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change any of it.

AS YOUNG car buyers scour the state for their first set of wheels, it is timely to remind them to put safety at the top of their shopping lists. Many first car buyers and their parents would be surprised to find dozens of used car models with potentially life-saving features like side curtain airbags and electronic stability control, are available for less than $3000. Gone are the days when the only cars firsttime buyers could afford were old clunkers with little in the way of safety features. Victorians are 30 times more likely to crash in their first six months of solo driving, so it makes sense that young drivers do their research before buying a car. The Transport Accident Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s How Safe is Your First Car website is a great place to start, allowing users to find four and five star ANCAP safety rated vehicles within their price range. While colours, sound systems and fuel economy may seem important to some, these features should all take a back seat to ensuring we all get home safe. Getting everyone in safer cars will help us in our Towards Zero vision for a future where no person dies or is seriously hurt on our roads. For more information on safe affordable cars head to au. Samantha Buckis, Transport Accident Commission.

Chase ends in county court By Cam Lucadou-Wells FOUR people accused over the alleged throwing of a Molotov cocktail at police in Cranbourne North are facing a new charge that puts them in front of the Victorian County Court. Matthew Butler, 29; John Vave, 29; Angie Christdou, 26; and Kylie Blythman, 20, appeared briefly in separate video-link hearings at Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on 29 November. The co-accused now face an additional serious indictable charge of attempting to pervert the course of justice by attempting to destroy a stolen Audi Q3

“by way of arson” on 11 November, the court heard. According to the charge, police were in the process of seizing the vehicle as evidence. The charge laid on 28 November took the hearing out of Dandenong Magistrates’ Court into the County Court jurisdiction, the court heard. On 11 November, the four co-accused were allegedly involved in a high-speed police pursuit in Melbourne’s southeast after the unignited Molotov cocktail was hurled. They were arrested when the vehicle allegedly hit a garden bed in Hampton Park.

Butler and Christdou were charged with recklessly endangering life by driving a vehicle at high speeds and changing drivers while driving in Hallam on the same day. Other charges include recklessly endangering life and attempted arson by throwing a Molotov cocktail - a 750ml vodka bottle of petrol - at a police officer next to a police vehicle. The four were also charged with receiving two stolen number plates and stealing a $40,000 Nissan Navara. All were remanded for a filing hearing at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 5 December.

In the education grove By Victoria Stone-Meadows A NEW early learning centre under construction will cater for young children in Clyde North. The new centre in Heather Grove will be attached to the new Heather Grove Primary School and give children an opportunity for integrated learning. The centre and primary school have been made possible through a partnership with the YMCA and the Victorian State Government. In having the early learning

centre and the primary school as a single educational unit, education providers can ensure a student’s transition from kinder to school is seamless. YMCA Victorian CEO Peter Burns said the organisation prioritised the wellbeing of students while offering the best educational outcomes and facilities possible. “It is our number one priority to always create a safe environment that exceeds expectations, so parents can rest assured their child is getting the best possible

start,” he said. “Our educational programs are based on international best practice and take a holistic approach to learning. “Busy parents can feel comfortable knowing that their children are getting the opportunity to play outside every day and that we invest in high quality healthy food for the children in our programs.” The new primary school and early learning centre at Heather Grove are scheduled to open in the 2017 school year.

They did it all for Mel By Victoria Stone-Meadows WHEN these few blokes get together to do something nice for a friend; they really get something special happening. The Better Life for Mel fund-raiser dominated the Cranbourne Racecourse on Sunday 27 November, all to help Mel Popple from Tooradin who was tragically diagnosed with cancer for the third time. The woman of the hour said she couldn’t believe the support from all her friends, family and the wider community. “It has been an emotional roller-coaster of a day but it has been very hard to wipe the smile from my face,” she said. “I have been moved to tears but they have been tears of happiness and I cannot thank everyone enough for bringing out their pride and joy just to support me.” Mel said without the support from the people around her, she wouldn’t be as strong as she was today. “I want to give a huge thanks to everyone,” she said. “Everyone’s kind wishes and positivity is what helps me to keep fighting on and it’s amazing how uplifting it is.” Event organiser Stuart Smith said the event went very smoothly and everyone was “over the moon” with the results.

like sporting grounds to help bring communities together. “If you are just buying or building a house, you aren’t connected yet and that takes time,” she says. “The provision of facilities is really important when planning the new buildings because once developers buy land and subdivide for housing, it’s very expensive to buy it back.” According to the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services, there are many benefits of sporting precincts, clubs and groups. “Sport and recreation plays an important part in the lives of individual Victorians and helps shape community identity,” the

department’s website says. “Sport and recreation opportunities provide settings for social interaction, sharing common interests and enhancing a sense of community.” Ms Eime says governments have a responsibility to ensure there is fair access to sporting facilities for all communities. “We need to make sure there are clubs and programs available and there are appropriate facilities and recreation spaces available and look at organisations to promote access to them.” “We also need to look at legislative requirements in terms of land availability.”

POLICE have described two men as “bumbling” through two armed robberies at milk bars in Hallam and Cranbourne West. The men armed with fishing knives were captured on CCTV as they entered a milk bar on George Chudleigh Avenue in Hallam about 10.30am on 23 November. Without a staff member present, the pair paced to and fro and rummaged behind the counter but settled for stealing a box of lighters. They fled in a waiting vehicle driven by a third male south along Nettle Drive. Two hours earlier, the same pair armed with fishing knives are believed to have demanded money from a milk bar attendant on the corner of David Avenue and Camms Road, Cranbourne West.

They were scared off empty handed by the staff member and fled in a waiting car north along David Avenue. The first male was wearing a black hooded CAT jumper with ‘Caterpillar’ written down the right sleeve, a white T-shirt, a pink/red belt, dark pants, grey runners and a stocking or mask over his face,

A NEW report released by Victoria University shows sport participation in Casey is well below the state average. The report was compiled by Associate Professor Rochelle Eime who analysed 2015 registration data from sports such as Australian football, basketball, bowls, cricket, golf, gymnastics, hockey, netball, football (soccer), sailing and tennis. The results from the analysis showed that in Casey only 12.73 per cent of children and young adults in the region participated in a community sport group or club. In more established rural areas of the state, the participation in sport rate is nearly 45 per cent for people in the same age bracket. Ms Eime said there was a lack of sporting facilities in newly established and high population growth area that had contributed to this decline in sport participation. “There are two main things that stop people in these areas from participating in sports,” she said. “In newly-built areas, everyone is new and the shared history and formation of the community is absent. “Secondly, we need people to build the facilities for them because clubs are built by volunteers and people need to be connected.” Ms Eime said her research reflected the disconnected nature of rapidly growing suburbs and the need for infrastructure

Curator weaves his magic By Cam Lucadou-Wells

Cap busters By Cam Lucadou-Wells CASEY mayor Sam Aziz says the council is “most likely” to again apply for an exemption to the rates cap in its 2017/18 budget. Cr Aziz said the council “can’t afford not to” apply for a rates cap variation again. He said the “phenomenal” growth of 150 people moving into Casey each week caused great demand for infrastructure. “If we don’t have the rates variation, we’re facing a $200 million black hole over the next decade.” “We’re only talking about a marginal variation to rates for every household but it adds up to a lot - that’s the economy of scale.” Cr Aziz said the council was working on a four-year-plan to create Australia’s most liveable city with more local jobs, more “beautiful master-planned

suburbs” and “first-class” infrastructure. “It’s a vision worthy of the largest city (in Australia) by population.” The council had its application for a 3.47 per cent rates rise in 2016.17 - a 0.97 per cent variation to the 2.5 per cent rates cap - rejected by the Essential Services Commission in May. The council is expected to decide on making its 2017/18 application in December. Cr Aziz said the State Government’s recently-announced Growing Better Suburbs funding didn’t counterbalance the impact of rate capping in Casey. Three projects will receive $7.3 million in State funds, including $1.4 million to match Casey’s contribution for a redevelopment of Strathaird Community Centre. The State will also fund $2.3 million for sports facilities at

The Hunt Club and $3.6 million for a family and community centre in Doveton. The $50 million a year Growing Better Suburbs Fund targets 10 interface councils, including Casey - which received more than $5 million last year. At the funding announcement, Narre Warren South MP Judith Couacaud Graley said the Strathaird project would expand the centre’s kindergarten and maternal and child health services. It will include an internet cafe, a multi-purpose community room with modern technology, kitchen and courtyard, public art and improved parking. It will create 45 extra fouryear-old kindergarten places, and host more services such as a parents group and a sleep settling group. Construction of the Strathaird project starts late 2017.

EXPERIENCE certainly counts for Berwick Cricket Club’s long-time volunteer curator Brian Wills. Lesser mortals may have been broken when faced with a barren, football-boot scarred central pitch area, an unusually damp spring and no available fresh soil ahead of the 2016-'17 season. Mr Wills, who started tending the Ash Brown Reserve pitches in 1974, however weaved his magic - despite the pitch spending much time under covers. There’s plenty of runs in the pitch, he told Star News ahead of a mid-week T-20. He’s at the ground most days, either hand-pushing the heavy roller, watering the footmarks or dragging on and off the covers. “You only get out of the club what you put in. “I’ve had a lot of friendships and a lot of enjoyment here.” The 74-year-old is in spritely nick, but his work is made harder by all his equipment squeezed into a cramped, antiquated 42-year-old shed. To get out the roller in the back of the shed, he has to move the mower and other tools. The club is seeking funds for a double-capacity modern shed that can securely house the curating and players’ equipment, as well as keep a dry stockpile of pitch soil. Club member Allan Bartlett said the shed had “got to the point of being dysfunctional”. “It will start to impact on

Brian Wills and assistant curator Rod Allan in the cramped Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS shed. 162408 Brian’s capabilities of doing his job.” President Andrew Moore said club legends like Mr Wills and his curating knowledge were irreplaceable. Also on Mr Wills’ wishlist is a ride-on roller to replace the manual one that weighs about “three-quarters of a tonne”. When Mr Wills started with the club 60 years ago, it barely had enough players for a team. He started as a 14-year-old playing against men. His allround skills graced a remarkable career that earned him a spot in West Gippsland Cricket Association’s team of the century. He learnt his pitchcraft under Ern Dunham and former Flemington racecourse curator

William Mitchell. Often Mr Wills resorts to the fabled key-test to check the qualities of his pitch. With a bit of exertion, the key has to be able to break through the top surface, he says. The club is now a powerhouse of 11 senior teams, 13 junior sides and a masters squad - with a girl’s squad starting for the first time this season. Among the young cricketers are Mr Wills’ grandsons Jarryd and Toby. His son Gavin is a former president. “We’ve got tremendous people, volunteers who do a terrific amount of work,” Mr Wills said. “But also if you don’t put in, clubs like these fold.”

Representatives of community and sporting groups received $1000 and $10,000 donations from Brown Property Group at Saturday's Highgrove family day.


school support fund. It’s a hidden issue, but there are lots of families in our area who struggle with the costs of education. “This money will assist with items like uniforms, text books, fees even right down to basics like backpacks, lunchboxes, shoes and even undies if they’re needed.” Casey Cardinia Foundation executive officer Therese Howell was similarly grateful for her organisation’s $10,000 donation. “It’s a great initiative by Brown Property Group to be thinking philanthropically about the region and giving back into the region that they are gaining from,” she said. Other clubs to receive a donation were Berwick Netball Club, Narre Warren Football Club, Skye United Soccer Club, Heinz South Dandenong Cricket Club, Narre South Cricket Club and Casey Comets Football Club.

Marketing manager Graham Nolan said the family day was a way for Brown Property Group to showcase the community to potential new residents while also rewarding those who had already decided to call it home. The day also was a great was to showcase the new display village. “Some of our builders have been open for a while, but today is the first day we’ve had all our builders open,” Mr Nolan explained. “We also have a number of residents now in Highgrove, the community is growing, so we wanted to put a day on for them with lots of fun family entertainment and free food. We want to get them to meet each other and enjoy a fun day out.” Among those at the open day were Kath and Greg Neilson, who are building their new home with Romeo Homes. The couple said they wanted to show

their support for Romeo Homes, one of the builders on show in the new display village. “We liked Romeo’s flexibility, their design,” Kath said. “We like heritage but the space and functionality of the modern. They have allowed us to combine both.” Mr Nolan said when finished, Highgrove would be home to over 950 households. He said buyers were being drawn to Highgrove by its extensive network of parks and open space and the quiet ambience of the community. For more information New Display Village is located at Cnr Berwick Cranbourne Rd & Newbridge Blvd, Clyde North.

COMMUNITY groups and sporting clubs gratefully collected cheques worth tens of thousands of dollars at the Highgrove family day on Saturday 19 November, thanks to a unique three-way partnership. Hundreds of people flocked to the Clyde North community drawn by the brilliant sunshine, free food, kids activities and the chance to meet players from the Carlton Football Club. The family day also marked the opening of the Highgrove display village, which has 27 stunning homes by 12 of Melbourne’s best builders. On hand to present the cheques was Brown Property Group director and former Carlton player Fraser Brown. The donations were a result of a fundraising collaboration between Highgrove, Orbit Homes and the Carlton Football Club. The trio built and sold a house within the Highgrove community, with some of the proceeds of the sale going to some local community groups. Renee Purton from the Berwick Springs Junior Football Club welcomed the $1000 donation to her club. “Any donation we get to the club is wonderful. Brown Property Group have made a very generous donation. It’s going to help with new sports equipment and with our facilities. We are a non-profit organisation so we do rely on the generosity of the community. This is just fantastic.” Cranbourne Information and Support Service CEO Leanne Petrides said the group's $10,000 donation would help get local children get ready for school. “The Information and Support Service will use the money for our education assistance program,” Ms Petrides said. “At this time of year we run a back to

Multicultural Day’s many messages TUESDAY 22 November saw Cranbourne East Secondary College host its first Multicultural Day and celebrate all the nationalities that make up its community. The day was organised by students at the school and saw Year 7-9 groups par-

ticipate in face painting, dot painting, origami, an Olympic documentary and a humanities mapping activity. Emmanuel Jakwot from the VFL was a special guest on the day and the school celebrated many different cultures with dancing, singing, fashion, food and more.

Students and staff wore international free dress to raise money for student initiatives that support the wider community. The focus of the Multicultural Day was anti-racism and anti-bullying as well as getting along and tolerance.

Business digs in for jobs By Casey Neill A Dandenong business breakfast with a twist featured a “call to arms” to help Doveton’s unemployed. The Rotary Clubs of Dandenong, Dandenong South East, Casey, Endeavour Hills, Berwick and Narre Warren joined forces to host the event at Beletti Restaurant Cafe Bar on Wednesday 16 November. Dandenong MP Gabrielle Williams was among the morning’s guest speakers and spoke passionately about breaking the entrenched disadvantage and unemployment in Doveton. She said the suburb’s downward spiral followed the exit of major employers General Motors, International Harvester and Heinz which she said served as a lesson given the pending automotive industry exodus. Ms Williams said the south-east was home to more than half the auto supply chain jobs, with 81 of the 137 tier one and tier two suppliers in Victoria located in the region. “Not one single thing can replace auto,” she said.

Guest speaker James Sturgess, from law firm Macpherson Kelley. She spoke about State Government measures to assist, including funding projects in industries that could create jobs for auto workers. Ms Williams said the State Government also had a significant role to play in helping Doveton to spring back

from 22 per cent unemployment. “Industry is also a huge piece of the puzzle,” she said. Fellow guest speaker James Sturgess from law firm Macpherson Kelley said finding the people in Doveton who wanted jobs was hard and there was a

disconnect between employment networks. He’s fielding job offers from employers and contacting Doveton College for candidates. “M and K have employed three people from Doveton, through Doveton College,” he said. Mr Sturgess said the school was engaging with parents as well as students to make a change. He said Macpherson Kelley was always open to opportunities to put back into the community. “We want to be part of the community,” he said. “We are privileged to be in business in this region.” And it’s been a fixture of the community since 4 October 1905. “There’s not a lot of businesses in Australia that have a heritage of more than 100 years,” he said. Mr Sturgess has been with the firm for 30 years next month and said it had changed dramatically in the past 15 years in particular. It’s now a commercial law firm

with a focus on substantial businesses, and has grown from a $15 million turnover and 90 staff 12 years ago to $60 million and close to 300 people today. “It’s a really successful business that has grown up in this community,” he said. Mr Sturgess spoke about manufacturing as “a critical part of this region”. He said the sector had grown by a few hundred jobs in the region in the past 10 years against a downward trend more widely. Rotary Club of Dandenong South East’s Phil Thurgood said every dollar donated to Rotary “gets to the cause” unlike many charities. He spoke about the work the club had been doing, including supporting Disaster Aid Australia and Romac, and funding pizza nights and swags for Cornerstone Contact Centre. Greater Dandenong Mayor Jim Memeti said more than 50 per cent of council rates came from businesses, and that the council and Rotary shared a common goal to see the municipality grow and prosper.

�� Feathers fly... Panthers keep Swans grounded Page 36

�� Connecting people with the local sport they love.

Lakers farewell great By Nick Creely “WHAT happens on the field stays on the field” is a simple yet touching saying. It means to be competitive in the heat of battle - but when the day has ended and the umpires flick off the bails to signal stumps, it is truly about being kind to others and putting life into perspective. In the life of the late Andrew Pellissier, a Lynbrook Cricket Club champion, who passed away on 8 November 2016, at the age of just 47, this saying, truly defines a life that impacted on a lot of people. ‘Pellis’, as he was affectionately known by at his beloved Lakers, joined the club in 2007/08, and immediately became one of the most likeable and respected figures around the traps of the Dandenong District Cricket Association. He went on to play 95 games at the club, captaining numerous sides over the journey, including the club’s E Grade team this season. But there was more to the left-handed batsman, and highly regarded wicket-keeper, that met the eye. He was apparently a star bowler - but only in his eyes! The four wickets he once claimed in a match truly proved the adage that “cricket is a funny game”; because his mates say he “couldn’t bowl”. Sure he made over 1300 runs for the club, and claimed over 50 dismissals with the gloves, but his teammates spoke about his loyalty, his passion and his general loveable nature. He was described as the kind of bloke that would nurture the young players coming into the club, quick to give them advice and welcome them. He was often late to training, not because he avoided the cricket, but because he loved nothing more than getting to the rooms to enjoy the banter that cricket clubs are famous for.

Andrew Pellissier was a fine gloveman for his beloved Lakers. Picture: SUPPLIED Lakers club-president Jason Bishop spoke glowingly about his impact on the club, citing his “prankster” nature, in which he would often take selfies on people’s mobiles, or hide empty cans around someone’s house - but also his incredible passion for music was well-noted. Bishop said that Andrew was one of the first blokes to greet you with a handshake and a “how you going mate?”, but on the field, he was the master of the understated one-liner, but his sledg-

es were often directed at his teammates, not the opposition. He described Andrew as a loving father to Cam, Tan and Josh and husband to Kim, and this loving nature transgressed through every individual he encountered. So much so, that in the week after Andrew’s passing, all the clubs that played Lynbrook allowed the club to farewell him on the field, prompting DDCA secretary Ray Nicholls to say

Young guns take on state’s best By Russell Bennett CASEY Cardinia Athletics has taken on the might of the state’s biggest athletics outfits, and come out on top. Competing in the Victorian State Relay Championships at Lakeside Stadium in Albert Park on Saturday, Casey Cardinia’s Under 16 4x100 metre men’s team took home gold in a staggering display while the open 4x400 men’s team smashed the club’s existing record to qualify for the final at the prestigious Zatopek meet. The 4x400 team - consisting of Michael Hansford, Jordan Carthew, Kaine Foster and Matt De Bruin - smashed the existing club record by around 10 seconds, providing further proof that the quality of the Casey Cardinia athletes stacks up against anyone. To give some context, Saturday’s meet featured national stars of the sport such as Tamsyn Lewis and even Rio Olympians - including Morgan Mitchell and Peter Bol. The likes of Old Melburnians, St Kevin’s, Old Xavierians, and Essendon Athletics sent their biggest and brightest stars to the weekend’s meet, and Casey Cardinia’s own stars took it right up to them, and even beat them. Kaine Foster backed up his appearance in the 4x400 by also representing Casey Cardinia in the gold medal-winning Under 16 4x100 team alongside Cameron De Bruin, Amiru Chandrasena and Sam Merrick. In taking out the state title, the boys also set a new club record for the Under 16s - 44.47 seconds, which is also the third best relay time run at Casey Cardinia Athletics.

Kaine Foster, Jordan Carthew, Michael Hansford and Matt De Bruin qualified for the prestigious Zatopek meet with an impressive run in the open men's 4x400 metre relay.

Kaine Foster, Cameron De Bruin, Amiru Chandrasena and Sam Merrick won the Victorian state Under 16 4x100 metre relay title.

“It shows that this great game of ours can still bring people together during a time of grieving and the respect shown is gratifying.” Amazingly, his son Cameron is now the captain of the E Grade side, in what is a touching sentiment in his father’s honour. For Pellis, the bails have been flicked off, and it is now stumps, but the legacy left will live on forever.

Well-deserved honour for Ron HAMPTON Park Tennis Club President Ron Lamb has been duly recognised for his outstanding contribution to the club over the last 28 years. Lamb was recently presented with Tennis Victoria’s Highly Commended Service Award. The award recognised Ron’s contribution to the sport of tennis in the local community of Hampton Park. His outstanding and exemplary service has included 20 years of presidency, a position he holds to this day. Highly Commended Service Awards are presented to five recipients each year, to those who have demonstrated their contribution to the sport of tennis through devoted and significant service to any one or more of Tennis Victoria’s affiliated clubs, associations or member organisations. “The Club would not be around if it wasn’t for Ron’s hard work along with being the main driver for the upkeep maintenance of the facility,” said club vice president Carlos Santin. Ron and club members have celebrated his 20 years’ service as president of the club with several events in 2016. The longest serving president of the club that was founded in 1962,

Ron Lamb has become an integral part of the fabric of the Hampton Park Tennis Club. 162069 Picture: ROB CAREW his tenure will be a hard target to catch, especially as he hopes to remain president for many more years to come. “In 2017 the club will be celebrating 55 years, and its existence is held to date due to the time and efforts that Ron has put into the club,” Santin said.

Cranbourne cruisers

By Nick Creely

By Nick Creely DDCA TURF 1 & 2 REVIEW - ROUND 5 (DAY 1) IT’S been a stunning fall from grace for Narre Warren, who looked completely out of their depth against Cranbourne at Casey Fields. The Magpies elected to bat, losing 4/8 before salvaging 74 all-out. Janaka Liyanabadalge (54) was the shining light, scoring over three-quarters of the runs, as Eagles superstar Steven Spoljaric (5/19) did what he liked once again. Other strong contributors with the ball were Pardeep Boyal (2/20) and Cameron Kelly (2/12). In response, the Eagles easily surpassed the Magpies three down, declaring at 3/82 off just 25 overs, before sending the Magpies in for further pain in the last hour of the day. Eagles opener Lucas Ligt (55no) found some vital form with the bat. The Magpies are currently 1/21, with outright looking a certainty. With a top-four spot on the line, Hallam’s first day grind may prove crucial in their intriguing clash with Heinz Southern Districts at Reedy Reserve. The Hawks started slowly, losing gun opener Leigh Booth (8) caught to the star Cobras recruit Kaushalya Weeraratne (2/47). Wickets, however, just kept tumbling, as Mark Davies (3/44) bowled wonderfully yet again, setting the tone with his immense pressure and accuracy. The Hawks were restricted to just 8/176 at stumps. Craig Slocombe has turned back the clock, in a vintage performance for Springvale South.

Eagles yet to score a win

It was a grinding day at the office for the Hallam batsman. 162336 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS After the Bloods were in disarray at 5/27, after being sent in by a hungry Dandenong West outfit, the skipper strode to the crease. Slocombe rescued his side, making a vintage 41, lifting the Bloods to a below-par but still defendable 146. With 46 overs of play left in the day, things couldn’t have gone worse for the Bulls, as they hardly got bat too ball, finishing the day’s play on 8/65 off 46 overs. Slocombe once again was astonishing, finishing with figures of 4/4 off 14 overs. It finally all came together for the Bucks on Saturday, destroying a disappointing Parkfield bowling unit at Park Oval.

In what has been a slow start to the season for their batsman, they amassed a whopping 9/338, as opener Jayson Hobbs (95) finally broke through. Bears pace-bowler Matthew Aslett (4/35) was easily the pick of the bowlers, and bowled his way to a hat-trick. With just four overs to go in the day’s play, North Dandenong simply had to survive with the bat - instead they walked off in humiliating fashion, losing 3/5. After Mordialloc elected to bat, they amassed a comfortable 218 off 76 overs. The Maroons bowled solidly, as wily veteran Shane Clark (5/44) bowled dominantly. With a reasonable day’s play, the

Maroons couldn’t have envisioned a more disastrous ending. Highly-rated opener Zafar Sheikh (0) fell straight away, followed by Qamar Awan (0) and Nasrat Malikzada (4) shortly after. Chathura Athukorala (2/5) was the chief-destroyer, as the Bloodhounds look to continue their momentum into next week. If there is one thing that is coming from the first-half of this season, it’s that Dingley are a team that can never be taken lightly. And at Arch Brown Reserve, the Dingoes are taking it right up to a starstudded Berwick, and are in a position to push for a victory next week. Bears captain Jarrod Goodes sent the Dingoes in, with James Wilcock (6/25) shredding apart the top-order with vicious pace. Dingoes opener Matthew Hague (70) played a stellar and perhaps game defining knock. The Dingoes pushed their total to 163 with some late hitting. But a flicker of hope, notably through Jasenthuliyana Chathuranga (3/8), saw the Bears lose three wickets before stumps, finishing on 3/56. TURF 2 NARRE South captain Scott Phillips has destroyed Beaconsfield at Perc Allison Oval. Phillips, who is a legendary local cricketer, took 6/28, as the Tigers capitulated for just 62. And with the Bat, Narre were sitting at 6/33, before Phillips struck a glorious 78, guiding them to first innings-points. The Tigers are 1/8 in their second dig.

VSDCA REVIEW - ROUND 5 (Day 2) ENDEAVOUR Hills have continued their season from hell, losing outright to Melton in another disappointing performance. After being routed for just 93 last week, the Eagles stood no chance, as Melton posted 4/180 before declaring after 40 overs. Richard Sainga (4/53) continues to stand tall for the Eagles, but there were few winners. The Eagles were then sent back in, again showing lack of application with the bat, as Ashley Sweet (7/36) ran through them for just 113. With just 27 runs to win, Melton took just 6.2 overs to chase down the outright victory, despite losing three wickets to the bowling of Brian Kulasena. Meanwhile, Noble Park has been destroyed by Werribee, being dismissed for just 102 in their pursuit of 214. Paul Hill (41) stood tall, but there was very little support around him, while gun Werribee seamer Brad Robertson (5/25) was destructive as usual. The Parkers were then sent back in with 13.2 overs left in the day, batting out the match, finishing on 2/31. Endeavour Hills are now one of two teams still winless, while Noble Park sits just outside the top six, and will be looking to bounce back from the disappointing performance.

By Nick Creely PREMIER CRICKET REVIEW - ROUNDS 8 & 9 (T20s) REGION rivals Dandenong and Casey-South Melbourne went head-to-head on Saturday in a Twenty20 at Shepley Oval, with the Panthers proving far too strong for a fighting Swans outfit. With the Panthers on a roll and sitting atop the ladder, and the Swans looking to bounce back after a few disappointing rounds, it seemed early on that a smashing was on the cards. The Swans were sent in to bat, and despite remaining steady in the first five overs, just couldn’t gain any momentum with the bat. James Pattinson (1/9) was fast and electric, and combined with Callum Parkinson (2/28), Adam McMaster (2/17) and Brett Fairbanks (2/14), restricted the Swans to just 111 off their 20 overs. Dev Pollock (24) top-scored for the Swans, but had very little support in the top six. With a small total to defend, the Swans couldn’t have done much more, and applied some great heat with the ball, but eventually the class of the Panthers prevailed, as Pattinson (37) and Brett Forsyth (37) combined for 63-runs to see them home. Spearhead Nathan Lambden (0/15) and Brendan Rose (2/19) bowled tightly. With a lot of positives to take out of Saturday’s performance against Dandenong, the Swans

Swans spearhead Nathan Lambden sends one down at Frankston on Sunday afternoon. 162470 Picture: RUSSELL BENNETT then headed to face other crosstown rivals Frankston at AH Butler Oval, who have endured a wretched start to the season at the bottom of the ladder. But unfortunately, a lack of intensity with the ball, despite a positive start, cost the Swans from ever being in the game. The Heat elected to bat, and Nathan Lambden struck relatively early, removing dangerous opener Liam Tonkin (21), who was caught off a miscued pull-shot. There was plenty of feeling between the two, who exchanged several words throughout Tonkin’s short stay at the crease. But that’s where things started to go a little pear-shaped, as veteran Luke Walker (61 not out) and Matthew Gapes (49) put together a vital 78-run partnership that steered the Heat to 3/157. The last over was particular damaging, as Chris McCormick (16 not out) and Walker smashed 18 runs, including two sixes off the bowling of Leigh Diston.

Brendan Rose (1/29) was probably the pick of the bowlers again, while spinner Cameron Dinger (0/24) did well despite being heavily attacked by the Heat batsman. And from that energy zapping last over, the Swans never really recovered, and despite a mid-pitch altercation between Dylan Hadfield and Heat spearhead Ben Ashkenazi, who wasn’t too happy about being run into in his follow through, there was a clear lack of intensity about the run-chase. When Ashkenazi removed Eaton for just eight, wickets started to tumble, and with it, the run-rate plummeted. Some late resistance from Michael Wallace (30 not out), who hit some expansive and inventive shots, and Dylan Hadfield (29), lifted the Swans to 6/139 off their 20 overs. The Swans will be looking to get back on the winners’ board, and will tackle St Kilda and Footscray Edgewater next week.

Lions jumping to the top of ladder By Nick Creely WEST GIPPSLAND CRICKET ASSOCIATION ROUND 6 - REVIEW (Day 2) PAKENHAM are continuing their impressive season in the Premier division, dismantling bottom-placed Emerald in an outright victory, and in the process, have captured top spot on the ladder. The Lions, after just falling over the line in their pursuit of the Bombers first-innings total of 148, took a 39-run lead, before sending them back in to bat. Skipper Dom Paynter (72) was once again the dominant batsman for the Lions, while Bombers bowler Geordie Scott (5/29) did the bulk of the damage. But in their second dig, the Bombers meekly lost 9/38, after at one stage being 0/45. Tom Jones (5/16) was devastating, shredding the middle-order en route to his best ever figures. Dom Paynter (3/36) was also amongst the wickets. This left the Lions with just 47 runs to chase down, with Dom Paynter (23no) ensuring they gain the double-points in just 6.3 overs. Tooradin has annihilated Upper Beaconsfield, and were close to gaining outright points before a resistance by the Maroons batsman. After rolling the Maroons for just 62 last week, the Seagulls resumed at 4/130, spanking a further 59 runs before declaring on 7/189, 127 runs in front. Aaron Avery (48) top-scored for the Gulls, while Tom Hussey (44) and Cal O’Hare (35) were also amongst the runs. The Maroons then dug deep, batting out the remaining 66 overs of the day, finishing on 6/138 after losing three quick wickets early in the innings. Bathiya Perera (30), Julian Bayard (30) and Scott Pitcher (29) were all solid with the bat, while Gulls opening bowler Cal O’Hare (3/25) did all he could. Pakenham-Upper Toomuc has stood no chance to a powerful Kooweerup unit, losing by a staggering 233 runs at Pakenham-Upper Reserve. With an imposing 357 to win, the Yabbies were never really in the contest, bowled out for just 133 in 61 overs. Opener Ben Clough (30) top-scored for the Yabbies, but it was all the Demons, as Skipper Mark Cooper (3/32) and Cody Miller (4/40) run amok. And finally, Merinda Park has upset Cardinia, defending their solid total of 266 at Donnelly Reserve. After a sparkling maiden century for Cobras opening bat Daniel McCalman the week prior, it seemed the momentum was with the home side, bowling out the Bulls for 212, with Neil Barfuss (100) once again reaching the triple figures. Seamer Leigh Paterson (4/50) was again the pick of the bowlers, while Daniel Diwell (2/9) and Grant Pearson (2/70) were among the wickets. Cranbourne Meadows just can’t seem to keep themselves out of the limelight, with yet another controversy in the District division, marring the round’s action. The Rebels, who were thumped by Tooradin, refused to bat in their second innings, due to their claim that the sledging received by the Seagulls fielders was incessant. The Seagulls crushed the Rebels, who could only muster up 63 in their chase of 188, with Kade Burns (3/15) and Tim Lenders (4/15) skittling them with no mercy. It only took 39.3 overs for the Rebels to be dismissed, but the day was over.

Kooweerup were clinical in victory on Saturday. 162332

Picture: ROB CAREW

Even the WGCA is left stumped By Russell Bennett DID you hear the one about the first XI cricket side that refused to take to the field for an entire innings? It’s the situation that has the West Gippsland Cricket Association stumped. After resuming on Saturday at 2/33 chasing Tooradin’s 187 in their District division clash at the Tooradin Recreation Reserve, Cranbourne Meadows was rolled for 63 in under 40 overs with Tim Lenders claiming 4/15 and lively newcomer Kade Burns 3/15. But instead of fighting to stave off an outright loss, the Rebels refused to take to the field for their second innings - handing full points to Tooradin by default. Officially, all the Cranbourne Meadows batsmen were timed out. There were some suggestions on social media that over-the-top sledging from the Seagulls was to blame. The Gazette understands the WGCA has received a

verbal complaint, but nothing yet in writing from the Rebels or the officiating umpires. Tooradin has emphatically denied any such suggestion of inappropriate language and the association has asked Cranbourne Meadows to explain why its first XI didn’t take to the field for its second innings. WGCA President Brett Armitage said he couldn’t recall a situation like this happening before. From the Tooradin perspective, president Kane Latham said: “We have looked into the allegations with captains, players and umpires and everything was found to be above board and within the spirit of cricket.” A number of Tooradin players mounted a staunch defence of their side, and their club - refuting any suggestion of abusive language or personal attacks - while Cranbourne Meadows declined to provide a comment on the incident to the Gazette.


The contest between Gembrook and Cardinia was a nail-biter. 162340 Pictures: STEWART CHAMBERS

Mick Floyd celebrates a wicket in the Panthers' crushing victory. 162339

Kalgidhar are continuing their stunning rise, holding off a competitive Nar Nar Goon/Maryknoll batting side to claim a vital victory. After Kalgidhar amassed a whopping 349 last week, off the back of a wonderful century by the classy Sunny Paul, the Marygoons gave it their all, as skipper Daniel Glen (72), Troy Schepisi (53) and Dean Henwood (47) put their best foot forward. But the total was just too far of a mountain to climb, as Pankaj Goyal (3/27), Vishal Thind (4/38) and Gagan Singla (1/34) eventually took the ten wickets. Clyde has been taught a cricketing lesson, dismantled by an impressive Devon Meadows bowling attack. Chasing 248, the Cougars failed miserably with the bat, bowled out for just 78. Matthew Hutchinson (5/37) was destructive, while Scott Clark (2/23) and Michael Floyd (2/13) were excellent supporting acts. And finally, Carlisle Park has tasted outright victory, crushing a hapless Officer in a dominant display of cricket at Carlisle Park Reserve. After the Bullants stunning batting collapse of 9/46 last week, the Vikings wasted little time in chasing down the total, but were eventually dismissed for 151 off the back of an impressive 51 by Henry Staughair. David Collins (5/41) continues to take wickets at will, while Adam Reid (2/18) was also in good touch with the ball in hand. The Bullants then simply had to grind out the last day, 40 overs to be exact, but were instead equally as disappointing, bowled out for just 85, as Jesse Fitzgerald (5/31) run amok. The Vikings then had to run down 19 runs to claim the outright victory, which they did in 5.4 overs. Meanwhile, in the Sub-District division, after Lang Lang’s ominous 325 last week, it was always going to be tricky for Aura Vale to chase.

And despite some fight in their second dig, the Lakers were outclassed, and were bowled out for just 92. Joseph Dalgleish (4/37) continued his strong season, doing the bulk of his work in the middle overs, while Ricky Caddell (2/8) was also in fine touch. The Swamp Tigers then sent the Lakers back in with outright on their minds, but the batting side dug in, finishing on 7/162. Clyde has continued their dominance over the competition, putting Nyora to the sword. After the Cougars whacked their way to 4/260 last week, the Maroons could only muster up 118, as Cougars bowlers Dean Williams (2/33) and Matthew Bayliss (2/12) took control. Pakenham have fought to a 58-run loss, after Catani managed to fend them off in their clash at Catani Reserve. The Cats posted 239 last week, and the Lions were on track, as Dene North (20) and Dwayne Noyahr (58) put on 71 for the first wicket. But a middle-order collapse, led by trio Lachlan Gregson (2/37), Ben Ahern (2/10) and Trent Adams (2/3), ensured the Lions could only reach 181. Cardinia have won a thriller, defeating Gembrook by just one wicket. Chasing 227, the Bulls were well led by gun opener Bradley Remy (97), who got them to a cruisy position of 5/219, eight runs short of victory. But the Bulls collapsed, losing four wickets in a short space of time, to be sitting on 9/225. Somehow the Bulls survived, surpassing the Brookers despite immense pressure.

Greyhound carnival hits Gippsland running GREYHOUND Racing Victoria will announce on Thursday that Sale, Warragul, Cranbourne and Traralgon will host an Australian-first carnival of greyhound racing across Gippsland. It is understood that the carnival will consist of qualifying races in each city followed by Cup nights with major prizemoney on offer, along with bonuses and other support races. The first Cup in the carnival, at Sale, will carry prize-

money of $108,000, and across the carnival greyhounds will be competing for an estimated $800,000. It is expected that a champion AFL player, with ties to Gippsland, has agreed to be the carnival’s ambassador. As part of the carnival, Greyhound Racing Victoria and the Andrews’ Labor Government are injecting a further $600,000 in advertising and event activities into the Gippsland region.

The Sale, Cranbourne, Warragul and Traralgon greyhound racing clubs contribute more than $40 million to the Gippsland economy each year, providing hundreds of local jobs. The carnival of racing will kick off at Sale on 18 December with qualifying heats followed by the Sale Cup on 26 December. The carnival concludes in Traralgon on 25 March.

Young guns need to fire up By Russell Bennett DESPITE a much-improved performance on Sunday, particularly with the bat, the West Gippsland Cricket Association (WGCA) Under 21s are still looking for their first win in this year’s Neil Wright Shield. The Warriors came up against the might of the powerhouse Dandenong District (DDCA) competition at Keysborough and showed plenty of positive intent with the bat, but were outclassed by seven wickets in their 40 overs aside one-dayer. After his side was sent in, WGCA skipper Zac Chaplin once again led from the front with a fine 61. Showing quick hands and sharp footwork, Chaplin displayed an impressive array of shots and this time had some valuable support from those around him - such as Tom Bethune (23) and Cody Miller (23). Runs were at a premium against the likes of

Josh Dowling (8 overs, 0/24), Jack Phillips (8 overs, 1/21) and spinner Jack Jessiman (8 overs, 3/34) but some valuable late hitting from 16-yearold Mitch Davey (18 not out) took the Warriors past 150 - ultimately finishing on 6/154. Matt Welsh (7.4 overs, 2/23) and Morne O’Donoghue bowled a particularly tight line and length at the start of the DDCA innings but the home side stayed composed - despite at one stage sitting on just 1/18 in the 11th over. Ultimately, the 105-run partnership between Rob Peat (46 not out) and Harley Dale (51) proved the difference-maker for the home side. The two showed some outstanding game awareness, stayed patient and pounced on anything loose as the DDCA reached the total in the 38th over just three wickets down. The WGCA now sits in 11th in the 12-team competition, with the DDCA sitting pretty in third.

CRANBOURNE BOWLS PLAYING at home against Doncaster was no problem for skip Tony Collins and his winning rink made up of Stan Myers, David Brown and Ron Shields. “Playing on a slow green at home was an advantage, we kept playing long ends and the opposition could not reach the head,” Collins said. “But I must admit my teammates were outstanding, particularly Ron Shields who was unbeaten all day and Stan Myers just kept the pressure on relentlessly.” The final result was Cranbourne second side defeated Doncaster by 28 shots in the end with three rinks up which was the only good news for the club on the day. The top side lost to Moorabbin by 31 shots and the third side lost by 10 shots against Hampton Park. Club news was the return of Andy Kidd this week after playing in the Police Bowls Tournament in the USA. Andy was excited about how he went but no one could understand what he was saying as he came back to the club talking with an American accent. The Cranbourne ladies side game was washed out on Tuesday so they had to split the points. With a number of players missing next game the selectors have a big challenge coming up during the week. Side 1 - Division 2 Cranbourne 59 lost to Moorabbin 90: P Elgar 17-24, D Boggie 15-21, I Barrenger 12-23 and N Hardy 15-22. Side 2 - Division 3 Cranbourne 88 defeated Doncaster 60: G Dudink 22-16, J McKenna 22-9, T Collins 29-9 and G Hunt 15-26. Side 3 - Division 4 Cranbourne 62 lost to Hampton Park 72: C Wright 12-25, J Kent 14-16, S De Piazza 17-17 and R Sorrensen 19-14. TOUGH WEEK FOR CRANBOURNE RSL

WGCA skipper Zac Chaplin was stoic in defence against the DDCA in the Under 21 Neil Wright Shield on Sunday. 162536 Picture: RUSSELL BENNETT The Warriors’ next clash will be at Princes Park in South Caulfield this Sunday against South East Brayside. At this stage, the WGCA side will include: Captain Zac Chaplin, Andrew Proctor, Kade Burns, Tom Bethune, wicket-keeper Ben Parrott, Matt Welsh, Morne O’Donoghue, Travis Wheller, Tim Lenders, Josh Browne and Damasara Menuwara.

�� Reviews and news…

Out of the ordinary luxury By Ewan Kennedy INFINITI, the upmarket Japanese car maker operated by Nissan, is pushing hard at the moment with new models in several segments, particularly in the small hatchback and SUV arenas.

Now, the Infiniti Q70 is joining the sales push, with major changes for the 2017 season. It has refreshed styling front and rear as well as in the cabin as well as improved NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) features that add to the upmarket feel. The Infiniti Q70 S Premium grade we have just tested also has suspension changes which not only make it smoother and quieter but also add to the sporty feeling. From the start the large Infiniti sedans have had sporty styling of the type favoured by British Jaguar saloons. This latest model continues to be low slung and attractive, with large guards, particularly at the rear that give it the sort of look that it’s ready to leap at the road. For 2017 the double-arch grille has a more three-dimensional look with what the designers call a ‘waved-mesh finish’, made to stand out even more by having chrome surround. The front bumper has been redone, with integrated foglights. The bootlid has been flattened and

the rear bumper slimmed down to make the rear of the Q70 look wider and lower. Our S Premium model had its rear bumper finished in high-gloss black paint. Large 20-inch alloy wheels in a double-spoke design certainly add to the sporty look. Inside, the big Infiniti continues to have a high-quality look with wood accents and leather trim. The front seats are heated and have 10-way power adjustment, including two-way lumbar support. Infiniti Q70 is powered by a 3.7-litre V6 petrol engine producing 235 kW at 7000 rpm, and 360 Nm of torque, the latter not peaking until a very high 5200 rpm. However there’s solid torque from relatively low revs. Power goes to the rear wheels through a seven-speed automatic transmission with manual overrides. Solid magnesium paddle shifters are a feature of the Q70 S Premium. The Infiniti Drive Mode Selector provides four modes - Standard, Eco, Sport or Snow. In Sport the Infiniti has measured the 0-100km/h time a 6.2 seconds so this big sports sedan is no slouch. There’s also a Q70 hybrid model that’s even quicker than the pure petrol version we tested, running a 5.3 second time to 100 km/h.

Bold, sports styling is a major feature of the revised for 2017 Infiniti Q7.

MODEL RANGE Q70 GT 3.7-litre petrol four-door sedan: $68,900 (automatic) Q70 S Premium 3.7-litre petrol four-door sedan: $78,900 (automatic) Q70 Hybrid GT Premium 3.5-litre petrol/electric hybrid four-door sedan: $82,900

An 8.0-inch high-resolution touchscreen and Infiniti Controller give access to multiple functions, including satellite navigation. Our Q70 S Premium had a Bose Premium Sound System with Bose Studio Surround sound system with digital 5.1-channel decoding and 16 speakers. Two of the speakers are mounted in the shoulders of each front seat. An Enhanced Intelligent Key system remembers last used audio, navigation and climate control settings for each key.

The latest Infiniti Safety Shield system as fitted to the Q70 S Premium has Forward Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Lane Departure Prevention (LDP). Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW) system and Back-up Collision Intervention (BCI) are fitted as part of the self-parking system. The front seats are large and comfortable and the aforementioned multiple adjustments make for secure travel. The rear seat is good for legroom and can carry three adults without too

much trouble. Two, with a child is a better way of doing it, though. The Q70 S Premium has the Active Noise Control feature, which monitors cabin noise levels and generates ‘cancelling waves’ to make travel almost eerily quiet on smooth roads. Despite the large tyres comfort was generally very good, though some rough surfaces did challenge the suspension due to the low profile tyres. Road grip is high and the steering responds nicely to driver input, as well as giving good feedback. Engine performance is fast and responsive thanks to the use of a large capacity V6 without a turbocharger. The transmission is generally in the right gear at the right time and we seldom found any need to override it using the manual modes. We preferred the added urge of Sport mode and kept the auto there most of the time. Fuel usage was relatively high by today’s standards, running at about seven to nine litres per 100 kilometres on country drives and motorways. Around town this went up to the low teens if pushed hard, but spent most of the time in the 11 to 12 litre range. Looking for something out of the ordinary in the luxury car field? Then the Infiniti Q70 certainly deserves a place on the shopping list. Its combination of quality build, quiet running and a sporty sedan looks and feel works
