Coach Thai Nguyen is happy to have finally secured a home for the Officer City Soccer Club. 178340 Picture: ROB CAREW

Score for soccer If finding a training ground was the goal, then the Cardinia Shire Council would be the goalie. Officer City Soccer Club has gone head-to head with the council since September last year to find a suitable ground to train on. But despite months of struggle, the newlyformed club has finally found a place to call home. The club was initially formed by a group of parents who, dissatisfied with the only soccer club in the Pakenham area, decided to form another club. "Our journey started last year in September and our contacts with council haven't yielded any positive results in terms of assistance with getting a facility for our club," Officer City Soccer Club president Thai Nguyen said.

"We've recently has some luck at John Henry Primary School as this facility is not run by council but by the YMCA. "We are so relieved to finally find somebody out there who cares about soccer and the club." The Officer City Soccer Club kicked off their training sessions in early March, to great success. "Currently our offerings are fun soccer skills and activities for players from the ages of four to 11," Mr Nguyen said. "Our oval's capacity is 40 players at any time in 4 groups, which is a little bit limiting. "We don't have council's support for a facility yet, but we will continue to work with them to secure a place in Officer that's large enough to field senior 11-a-side matches, have floodlights to enable soccer after hours and has

canteen facilities to provide refreshments to the community. "We're making the most of what we've got." Feeling similarly constrained by the lack of available facilities, the council said it was developing "a master plan" to support the growing interest in soccer in the shire. The council's manager of active communities Kristen Jackson said the growth of soccer and other field-based sports in Cardinia Shire had been strong. "Consequently, existing council-owned facilities suitable for a soccer club are fully allocated at this time," Ms Jackson said. "As part of our commitment to providing our community members with great facilities for physical activity, we are currently developing a master plan for McMullan Recreation Re-

serve in Officer, which is earmarked for a new soccer facility. "In the future, a facility like this one could support new clubs such as Officer Soccer Club." In the interim, Ms Jackson advises that the club use available school facilities. "Council staff have been in close communication with the newly-formed Officer Soccer Club since late last year," she said. "Our discussions have centred on what we are doing to explore options for the club, including the club potentially using local school facilities in the short to medium term as it establishes and grows." To find out more about training times and to keep updated on the clubs' development, visit the Officer City Soccer Club Facebook page, or contact OfficerCitySc@gmail.com.

Footy star beats jail By Brendan Rees A former AFL footballer and known SouthEast superstar who pleaded guilty to a series of drugs and weapons offences, including possessing an unregistered handgun, has been spared jail. Justin Lee Berry, 36, of Dandenong North, faced charges of trafficking methylamphetamine, ecstasy and butanediol over a threeyear period in the Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on Friday, 2 March. Berry was also charged with possession of a taser, knuckle dusters, a flick knife, 9mm pistol ammunition, an imitation firearm, stolen bank cards and driver licences, multiple plastic snap lock bags containing drugs, and a stolen Yamaha motor bike valued at more than $7000. Judge Jack Vandersteen praised Berry for his engagement with drug treatment during his CISP bail program after he was arrested during a police raid at his home on 29 September last year. Berry was given a 12-month community corrections order and ordered to perform 250 hours of unpaid community work for 12 months. “While you’ve been undertaken to that program, you have attended every condition and gone over and beyond what was required of you in terms of maintaining your rehabilitation,” Mr Vandersteen said. “Had you not pleaded guilty to the charges before the court, I would have sentenced you to nine months' imprisonment and placed you on a 12-month community corrections order,” he said. Berry was drafted by St Kilda in 2001 and played top-up games with Carlton in the VFL. He has been a superstar in Melbourne’s SouthEast, with stints at Cranbourne, Devon Meadows, and Garfield as well as Frankston’s VFL side.

While you have undertaken that program, you have attended every condition and gone over and beyond what was required of you in terms of ... your rehabilitation… Magistrate Jack Vandersteen

Mr Vandersteen credited Berry for being cooperative with police, gaining employment, focusing on his family and acting as a role model and volunteer at his local football club. “You’ve done everything right. You place yourself in a very strong position,” he said. Mr Vandersteen noted Berry’s age, his limited criminal history, his full admissions to police, and the fact that he kept up his drug rehabilitation. He said it was important for Berry to ensure he upheld high standards if he chose to be involved in sporting clubs. Berry’s lawyer, Jacqui Caust of Dandenong Legal Aid said Berry was remorseful and was motivated in keeping his appointments with his counsellor. His 12-month CCO includes supervision, and drug and mental health treatment. Seventy-five hours of Berry’s rehabilitation may be regarded as unpaid community work.

Magical Parks is staged as part of Parks Week 2018. It is at Wilson Botanic Park and Bacchus Park between 10 and 25 March.

Wilson Botanic Park will host a family app-game this month.

Two Casey parklands will host ‘virtual’ appbased games as part of a Magical Parks event this month. Wilson Botanic Park in Berwick and Bacchus Park in Cranbourne West are set to turn into digital fantasy playgrounds with a recycling-rubbish theme. As part of the game, children and families explore the “blended virtual world” using a specialised app. Instructions are displayed in each of the parks. It is aimed at families and children aged between six and 11. It follows a successful Magical Parks transformation of Wilson Botanic Park last year, which attracted more than 170 players. The park was the second-most popular Magical Parks host in Australia. Casey mayor Geoff Ablett said the game was a “great way to sneak in some exercise”, noting the average distance travelled by play-

… BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE The editor’s desk News of 21st century grave robbers in the South-East surely represents a new low for humanity. How hungry, how desperate for fix, how bereft of a soul would you have to be to go lifting plaques from the dead for their scrap metal value? And what kind of a dealer would cash them in? It seems ridiculous that our cemeteries would seriously have to consider night-vision security cameras to halt this lunacy. It’s a story that would make no sense in the least affluent community in Australia - and it makes no sense here either. The old adage is that criminals don’t take up crime because they’re smart but this surely represents an entirely new low water mark of intelligence. The impact on the living - those poor relatives left behind to pick up the pieces - can scarcely be imagined. Someone out there knows something. And something must be done to make it clear that this community considers these actions to be completely beyond the pale. There is no room in heaven for those who interfere with the sleep of the dead. So if you know something about these crimes, make the police aware so we can halt this dreadful trade. And if, worse, you’re involved in it ... then hand yourself in post-haste, and get the help you clearly so desperately need. - Jason Beck

NEWS Birds hover over a gaping hole in Bunjil Place''s roof. 178530 Picture: CAM LUCADOU-WELLS

Second try By Cam Lucadou-Wells

Bunjil’s roof raised By Cam Lucadou-Wells Storms have literally raised the roof at Casey Council's $125 million Bunjil Place building. Four months after the landmark building's opening, about 10 panels from the roof's southern edge were peeled off by strong winds on 14 February. Since then, the roof section on the corner of Princes Highway and Magid Drive has been left with a gaping hole. Casey Council has denied there were "significant structural or safety issues" despite a three-metre-long steel door handle falling near a toddler at Bunjil's main reception door on 28 February. Henry Sonogan was visiting with a friend and a 20-month-old girl when the door handle

crashed to the floor "of its own accord". "It gave us all one hell of a shock," Mr Sonogon said. "The young girl cried out." Mr Sonogan feared a young child would suffer serious injury if struck by the falling handle. "It is a bit worrying to visit Bunjil Place what with dislodging and unsecured roof cladding, and door handle bars that could dislodge at any time." Mark Dibsdale, the Bunjil close-out projects manager, said the door handle came loose due to the fixing bolt working loose. It was repaired straight away and all similar handles were checked for tightness, he said. The roof was expected to be fixed by the end of next week.

"Upon becoming aware of the problem, the remaining panels were immediately checked and additional fixings were installed to ensure that no additional panels could come loose," Mr Dibsdale said. "Engineers have reviewed the roof and recommended new fixings that would be able to withstand a greater degree of wind force." The proposal was being reviewed by a thirdparty engineer, Mr Dibsdale said. He said a "wide range of items" had been rectified during a 12-month defects-liability period as part of Bunjil's construction contract. "Construction contract defects and omissions rectification have no cost impact to Council."

An Emerald man has submitted for a Dandenong Drug Court treatment order after pleading guilty to several counts of trafficking GHB and disqualified driving. Reece Pepi, 26, was facing a likely jail term at Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on 5 March due to his long history of 14 unlicensed, suspended and disqualified driving offences. In a dramatic turn of events, Pepi was then invited to resubmit for a drug-court screening on 8 March, after being denied by the drug court the week before. The court heard that Pepi was found by police hiding in a car with a container of GHB, zip-lock bags and about $2083 - mainly stashed in his underpants - on Ernst Wanke Road, Berwick on 26 November. He was charged with driving after being disqualified, his fourth such charge since June. He had also been intercepted by police at an Officer service station with five bottles of GHB, a zip-lock bag of meth, an ice pipe and about $2000 in his pants pocket on 12 November. As of 5 March, Pepi had spent the past 99 days in remand custody. During that time, Pepi had dried out from drug addiction and turned back into “the person that he used to be”, his lawyer said. In arguing against further jail, Pepi’s lawyer said the accused had successfully completed a corrections order and suspended sentence in 2014. There had been no further offending until Pepi’s relapse into drug addiction last year. After an interval, magistrate Jack Vandersteen said he discussed the matter out-of-court with drug court magistrate Gerard Bryant. Mr Vandersteen said Mr Bryant, in rejecting Pepi’s application for drug court on 1 March, had been unaware of the three trafficking charges at the time. A drug treatment order combines drug treatment with a suspended jail term.

Mike Tyler with a monstrous effort of over 36 years with Cranbourne and Berwick deserves recognition. Love him or dislike him, his resolve has been inspiring. He has seen many councillors both average, poor and diligent come and go during his watch. If he was a racehorse he would have won the Melbourne Cup, a footballer the Brownlow. And a tennis or golf sportsman knows the important thing is his stamina and task to get things moving. It is now up to councillors and staff to ensure there is an afternoon tea farewell for all to attend and wish him good health and happiness. Geoff Cousins, Cranbourne.

Thanks to Cam Lucadou-Wells for his report “CEO vacancy goes out to jobs market“, (Star News, Thursday, 1 March). If Cr Wayne Smith and Cr Rosalie Crestani want to hold a public farewell, as they state, for outgoing CEO Mike Tyler then they should pay for it, not Casey ratepayers. Many of the councillors who appointed Tyler without advertising the CEO job still remain on council today, unfortunately. However, some Casey ratepayers still have a sense of history about local government that appears to have been “anaesthetised’’ by Casey Council. Before the last council election, Mike Tyler wrongly told some Four Oaks ward residents they

had no entitlement to compensation even though Casey contractors/workers had planted some London Plain trees which destroyed the integrity of their gardens and driveways. Further, Mike Tyler and Casey Council were not transparent about who received the $250,000 “bonus“ for writing a failed rate cap variation application to the Essential Services Commission two years ago; a report that was found to be unsubstantiated by the commission. In 2008 Mike Tyler was CEO when the Casey mayor and council wrongly informed Brookland Greens residents that they were not entitled to compensation following toxic gas leaks from the Stevenson’s Road Landfill in Cranbourne.

‘Winners’ all round "A controversial roundabout project at the corner of Greaves Road and Berwick Springs Promenade has been given the all-clear by the state's planning tribunal. The $5.2 million project which would demolish the upmarket estate Berwick Springs's two-tiered bluestone-wall gateway was granted a permit by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal on 26 February. The decision was welcomed by project supporter Casey Council - and to a degree by opposing residents. To the residents' relief, the plans were modified to more faithfully reconstruct the original

An Invitation To Year 5 & 6 Students And Their Parents

gateway's dual-tiered wall. The 40-metre, two-lane roundabout will be co-funded by VicRoads and developer Moremac, which is building Alira estate to the north of Greaves Road. VCAT members Bill Sibonis and Ric Bland, in approving the project's new plans, found that the gateway would be replicated "for all intents and purposes". "The outcome of the proposal will be that an acceptable entry will be provided." As part of the project, the demolished gateway and landscaping will be reconstructed albeit further south. The developer's original design for a single

bluestone wall feature has been replaced with a second tier with plantings on both tiers "consistent with what presently exists". The application was opposed by 205 objecting residents, who fought to retain the original estate entrance. Organiser Michael Ball said contrary to some Facebook commentary, it wasn't a case of the council "winning" the battle. "If they want to claim a victory is the unwarranted destruction of the Berwick Springs Promenade then they can keep that trophy." Mr Ball said that democracy could be instead declared the winner.

GROW BUSINESS ‌ Casey Cardinia Region

Jade’s breakfast revolution By Narelle Coulter Jade Fraser loves breakfast so much that she is building a business around her favourite meal of the day. Jade, 38, is the founder of Tall Dark and Nutty a boutique muesli business. Sitting down to eat her own breakfast one morning last year, Jade hit upon the idea of combining traditional muesli with that other great breakfast favourite, coffee. "It just made so much sense. To me coffee and breakfast go hand in hand," said Jade, who loves coffee so much she has a cluster of little coffee beans tattooed behind her left ear. In the kitchen of her mother's Narre Warren home, Jade creates her signature dark chocolate espresso muesli - combining chocolate coated espresso beans, with oats, puffed rice, pumpkin seeds, six different nuts, shredded coconut and spice. The espresso beans, sourced from Zest in Berwick, are hand coated in the chocolate. "It's a labour of love," said Jade, laughing. She also makes a dirty chai muesli and is working on a French vanilla latte and a vegan mocha. A 300gram bag of muesli retails for $8.70. Her range also includes a spiced espresso dukkah and sweet espresso dukkah. Jade sells to individuals at the moment through Facebook and Instagram, but hopes to get her products into cafes soon. The origin of Tall Dark and Nutty goes back to Jade's own extraordinary weight loss journey which saw her lose 30.8 kilograms by changing her diet and exercising. At her heaviest she was over 100 kilograms. "I lost 12 kg through changing my diet alone," she explained. "The weight was coming off but my body look quite awful so I started training with a personal trainer. During that process I learnt what to eat. I was really quite confused by food before." Jade says she has always had an "interesting relationship with food". As a child she was an extremely fussy eater and when her mum got sick with cancer when Jade was 17 she virtually stopped eating. "I felt like everything was out of control so I stopped eating all together because I could control that," she explained. In her 20s she had a daughter who was three months premature and her mum, Fran, became sick again. "I lost touch with what food was, what it did and what its purpose was. "I lost my way." At 100.8 kilograms, Jade was boarding on using a cane to walk and her daughter was faced with the prospect of wheeling her mum around shopping centres in a chair. A doctor offered to write a prescription for diet pills, a solution Jade felt deeply uncomfortable with. When her brother urged her to take the pills because "you are just too heavy to do it on your own", something snapped and she

thought"you just watch me". Jade started replacing meals with diet shakes, walking around the school oval and using a power fit machine. Not long after, the idea for Tall Dark and Nutty was conceived. "I had detoxed off sugar and was looking for something for my own breakfast that was quick and easy. But I found whatever I could get in the supermarket was too sweet for my taste by then and I didn't feel had enough nutritional value so I started making my own muesli at home," she explained. Jade completed a business course through the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme, by the end of which she had a business plan and her product was "ready to go". Tall Dark and Nutty is financed through another venture Jade launched last December Luxe Grazing. Luxe Grazing, which offers fresh, healthy grazing boards for functions and parties, says Jade has "really taken off". "When I lost the weight I really struggled at functions and events because I didn't want to eat the fried spring rolls or pies. "Luxe Grazing came to me as a way to feed a lot of people as naturally as possible." As a single mum Jade relishes being able to work from home, however she also utilises a desk at the Waterman Business Centre in Narre Warren. That's where she tackles administration and "back end stuff because at home I just wasn't doing it". "I'd decide that instead of sending a difficult email to someone I really need to vacuum the floor," she said, laughing. "Working from home is great because I want to be around for kids but so easy not to do the hard stuff. " The shared working space at Waterman Centre has also brought her into contact with other small business entrepreneurs. Jade's aim with both businesses is to "build a brand around natural eating and body confidence". In five years she would like her muesli to be available in cafes, retail stores and hotels. "I'd like it to be a thriving brand with a really good message." She also dreams of a small factory with a shop front, coffee machine and community garden. "One of the hardest things, the most frustrating things about having the vision is not having the capital to do it, that's the biggest struggle." While she works towards making that vision a reality, Jade's passion and energy is revitalised each morning when she climbs back into bed before her children wake with a bowl of muesli and cup of coffee. "I would like to create a community around breakfast, whether that's eating my muesli or not. There should be more breakfast meetings and even breakfast dates. I just think there needs to be more breakfast," she said, with another peal of laughter.

Healthy habits are part of the culture at Outlook, and they have the certificate to prove it. As part of the Victorian Prevention and Health Promotion Achievement Program for workplaces, the Pakenham-based social enterprise organisation has just received its first level of accreditation as a workplace with a strong focus on the health and wellbeing of its staff and volunteers. It was recently recognised for its efforts by the Cancer Council with a formal certificate. Despite reaching this status, the organisation has vowed to continue its work in creating and sustaining a safe and healthy workplace, with the support of Monash Health health promotion staff. "Outlook has already introduced a number

of health and wellbeing initiatives within the organisation including; outdoor staff /volunteers stretching before starting their shift, fruit bowls in all worksite kitchens, a conscious decision to not have drink vending machines but offering access to chilled water, as well as no smoking at work sites," a Monash Health spokesperson said. "These actions complement and are consistent with internal policies and plans. The spokesperson said the benefit for the organisation was that "staff and volunteers are happier and healthier, thus being more productive and providing a win-win situation for all". More information about the Workplace Achievement Program can be found at http:// www.achievementprogram.health.vic.gov.au/.

More than 2000 cancer survivors, carers and supporters have rallied together for the 24hour Casey Relay for Life event on 2-3 March. The relay at Akoonah Park, featuring a moving candlelight ceremony for loved ones, is expected to raise more than $300,000 for cancer research, treatment and support. In its 15 year history, the Casey event has raised more than $4 million. The Cancer Council fundraiser attracted 74 committed teams and 2243 participants who kept motoring through the event's night and day. Event organiser Daniel Margariti - a 26-year-old cancer survivor - entered a team with friends from the Young Adult Cancer Support (YACS) group that he founded. Flanked by proud family and friends, the team surpassed all expectations raising more than $7500. The event was an emotional experience for the YACS team. They walked the first relay lap hand-in-hand. They are a tight group that want to get involved, to get out and do things, Mr Margariti said. "To meet other people that feel the same way - it means the world." There's no stopping Mr Margariti who has overcome a double-bout of cancer that spread to his stomach, spine and liver. He has prospered from pioneering stemcell transplant in 2015 - a last-resort option

PEAKE OF THEIR POWERS PEAKE Real Estate’s property management team was crowned the Property Management Team of the Year at the recent ARERA awards. The 12th annual Australasian Real Estate Results Awards was held at the Melbourne Town hall in February. Peake was a finalist in eight categories, taking out the Property Management award. The property management team, consisting of Lisa Hearn, Kim Williams, Cindy Huntington and Hannah Adams, is overseen by director Marisa Adams. “Our team of very experienced, mature ladies can offer all our clients a personalised service which we believe is second to none,” Ms Adams said. “Our team is highly trained to deal with all aspects of property management and ensure that our clients receive maximum return on investment. Your property portfolio is too important to leave it in the hands of an inexperienced property manager with little or no understanding of what it means to manage investment properties.” The newest member of the team, Kim Williams, also spoke at the two day conference held in conjunction with the awards. Ms Adams said the Peake team reflected the theme of this year’s awards - client experience and service. “I guess we showed in our submission that we have very good retention rates because of our personalised service. “Because our team manages a portfolio of smaller numbers they can

give that kind of personalised service.” Ms Adams summed up the team’s mood on the night as “ecstatic”. “ We celebrated big time,” she said, laughing. “It’s a great award for girls to be recognised in this way. There are lots of awards out there for sales staff, but property managers are often the hard workers who are forgotten in the background, so this was a great win for that reason.

“Property managers all over the place deserve a pat on the back for the massive amount of work they do.” The Real Estate Results Network, of which Peake Real Estate is a member, is headed by CEO and founder Michael Sheargold. He works with leading real estate agencies throughout Australia and New Zealand to maximise their competitive advantage through constant training to improve the standard of the industry.

Last year Peake Real Estate won the Service Excellence award. “To go on and win the Property Management award this year is a solid testament to the service the Peake team provide to all their clients across the business, including landlords and tenants,” Ms Adams said. “We feel very privileged to have won this award against some of the country’s largest and very successful businesses.” ●

FOCUS ON … EDUCATION CHOICES

Technology: tool or trap? Schools are enabling students with devices and internet capability, and yet it is known that unhealthy online habits and the prevalence of cyber-bullying can be very destructive. Is modern technology a tool or trap for young people? Current parents of teens grew up having nothing like the connectivity that children do today. Effectively a generation of "digital immigrants" is parenting a generation of "digital natives". How do we make it work in our schools and homes? How do we maximise the benefits while protecting our children? Principal at Chairo Christian School's Pakenham Campus, Peter Wells, explains how the school approaches this issue. "We embrace technology as a wonderful tool for learning, communication and creativity. We provide students with their own device and have a learning management system that connects teachers, students and parents to each other, and to essential information,” Mr Wells said. “We have robust technological controls on internet behaviour, but we also build a strong culture of child safety, and we work on shaping character so students will choose what is right, not merely be prevented from doing what’s wrong.” Chairo is an accredited eSmart school and also provides training for parents, empowering them to uphold shared values in the home. Chairo Pakenham is a K–12 school on a

St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School allows students to discover new interests as they engage in an extensive co-curricular program.

St Paul's Anglican Grammar School allows students to discover new interests as they engage in an extensive co-curricular program of sporting, music, performing arts, personal development, outdoor education, visual arts and cultural activities. Discover the St Paul's Junior School which encourages student creativity through the Year 2 Strings Program, Year 5 Brass and Woodwind Program, and Art Enrichment classes. Commencing early in Year 6 for existing and new students, the extended Year 7 Transition Program guides, mediates, supports and encourages students, helping them to have a confident start at secondary school. The electives program commences much earlier at St Paul's with students in Years 7 and 8 choosing their 'own adventure' through a

broad range of specialist electives in technology, performing arts and visual arts fields. The Elite Sports Performers (ESP) Program offered at St Paul's from Years 7 to 12 currently assists over 60 students to achieve their sporting dreams while supporting them to achieve their best at school. With pastoral care programs that include Trust Mapping in Years 3-9 (an online survey mapping tool that identifies students who are not feeling connected), staff are able to identify where appropriate support may be required, and parents can be assured their child will be happy, safe and respected at St Paul's.

FOCUS ON … EDUCATION CHOICES

St Brigid's Primary School in Officer opened in 2010 in response to the demand for Catholic education in the Officer and Beaconsfield areas. The school is a sister school of St. Michael's Primary and St. Catherine's Primary in Berwick and a feeder school of St. Francis Xavier College. St Brigid's Primary knows that starting school is a time of excitement, anticipation and longing. "Children instinctively want to learn new things, create and explore. At St Brigid's we endeavour to tap into this energy and engage and motivate these young people in their learning," St Brigid's Primary School principal Ken Gale said. "We aim to develop the whole child and provide a balanced curriculum that meets the needs of all students. "We value the importance of giving students the opportunities to demonstrate their individual strengths and abilities and to make connections in their lives to the world around them." St Brigid's offer a range of extra-curricular activities including garden club, choir, cross country, swimming and athletics teams, interschool sports (including hoop time basketball), origami club, Minnie Vinnies and a school concert at Bunjil Place.

Made of the Wright stuff By Nick Creely To champion kickboxer Jayden Wright, every win makes him even hungrier for more success. The 26 year-old Officer and XFC Narre Warren man's latest inspirational victory; taking him to a professional record of 7-0; came at a buzzing Melbourne Pavilion for Powerplay 36 last Friday night. Up against the unknown challenge of Leone Charalambous, Jayden swung the fight in the third round to win unanimously, with a series of brilliant body shots and uppercuts putting him ahead at the final bell. Jayden explained that this fight in particular set him a unique challenge, one that made him have to think on his feet and adapt to what was thrown at him. "It was good to get the win, considering we went in knowing absolutely nothing about him; we had no idea about him or what he could do," he said. "The Mini fight was still the hardest to date, but this was hard considering we knew absolutely nothing about him; if it happened again, it would be a completely different story because know we know what he's capable of. "All you can do is assume in that situation, and he did nothing of what we did assume; we got in the ring, and he did nothing of what we planned, so we had to adjust in the ring and go on the fly. "The first round, I got on top of him, and he stunned me with a good straight left to the chin in the second, and then I halted the momentum for a brief period, and in the third round I brought it home; fitness definitely played a part, for sure." Jayden still has to pinch himself in the ring, with the crowd, atmosphere and buzz around the Pavilion something that stays in his head. "At the Pavilion, there's always a great at-

But this win hasn't satisfied the hunger that has driven him to bounce back time and time again, and wants to continue making his fans and coaches proud, and his opponent's quake in their boots. "I'm just that hungry, I'll be back in the

ring in just three weeks; my coach has me on a timeline, which is a 10 year timeline; as my coach tells me, I'm only 40 per cent there in my development, I've got another 60 per cent of growth to do," he said. "I want to improve my fight IQ, things like being able to make strategy decisions at the drop of a hat; I've had another taste, now I want more. "I'm at full throttle, straight back into training."

And Jayden recently added to his already extensive tattoo collection, and said he is hoping to add more in the near future. "I just added a new tattoo to the head (after the fight), so I just have to make sure I keep winning," he joked. Jayden will back in the ring on 23 March for Ultimate Legends, where he will look to continue his stunning record.

enjoyed their time at the club and despite there being no development league in 2018, a lot of our players have stayed." Rawlings said. "We've also been able to recruit a couple of others as well, so we're quite satisfied with what we've been able to achieve over the summer and we've given ourselves a good launching pad for the season." Casey fans will be happy to hear that Rawlings will require his players to be absolute competitors and build a defence that is steadfast. After all, spending seven years as a backline specialist with Melbourne, it's fair to say he knows a thing or two about instilling a defensive mindset. "There's a high premium on how we attack the footy and the contest side of the game." Rawlings said. "We'll have a very high emphasis on how we defend the ground as well. It's my background, it's my area of passion really - the defensive elements of the game, so it's something that I've been pretty strongly trying to impose on the group in my time at the club so far." Whilst the defence is at the forefront of Rawlings' mind, don't for a second think that the Casey's game style will be a boring one. The Demons will be looking to have that defensive energy slingshot their offence to new heights. "That's effectively why our focus is on contest and defence because there are two ways you can win the ball; at a contest or getting it back off the opposition. Then we've worked very hard on how we want to try to hit the scoreboard from those situations." Rawlings said.

"I expect this year to see a club that is really galvanised." That's the message from Casey Demons coach and former Hawthorn, Western Bulldogs, and North Melbourne player Jade Rawlings. In his first season as head coach of Casey, Rawlings - who has head coaching experience with Coburg in 2008 and Richmond as AFL caretaker coach in 2009 - outlines what he expects of his players. "Any of our VFL-listed players that come in and play for us, come in with a real purpose and show a real team-first mindset and commitment to what we believe in." Rawlings said. "From there, we'll go as far as we can go - I don't set a ceiling and I'm not a great crystal baller. But one thing I do expect to see is a footy club that is united in its approach, that loves playing the game each week, respects the game and really enjoys playing together." Rawlings, who has been an assistant at Melbourne since 2011 - as backline coach and then transitioning to defensive coordinator - jumped at the opportunity to once again lead his own team. "It was 10 years ago since I was a [head coach] and I've been assistant coaching for a long time, so when the opportunity was presented to be able to head coach again it was very entertaining for me." Rawlings said. "I haven't regretted it one bit - I love my job and I really enjoy the players and staff that I work with, so it's been very enjoyable and we haven't even played a game yet." Rawlings admits a lot has changed since his last head coaching role - for the better. "I think a lot of things haven't changed, but at the same time, over 10 years a lot of things evolve and develop." Rawlings said. "I've probably got more resources at my disposal as a coach this time around than what I had at Coburg. This modern day and age of technology, with how our young people probably behave is a bit different to what I was used to 10 years ago but all positive stuff." With preseason almost coming to a close, Rawlings reflected on his first summer at the helm. "We've had a pretty good summer - we've been able to retain a number of players from the 2017 list. There's obviously a lot of players who

Lions set to roar in finals PAKENHAM BOWLS For both the Midweek and Saturday Pennant competitions, the final home and away games for season 2017/18 were won and lost last week. For some teams it is now all over until 2018/19 - however two of Pakenham's Saturday sides and three from the Midweek competition have booked their places in the semi-finals. SATURDAY Pakenham 1 (Division 1) was in fourth spot after Round 17 but had to win at Berwick last Saturday if it was to maintain its position and have a crack at the finals. Unfortunately for the Lions, the Wickers were too good on their home ground and, with only one winning rink, the Lions fell short by 19 shots. Geoff Van Vugt (S), Ryan Drummond (3), Kerry Lewis (2) and Stephen Arms (L) were Pakenham's best with a 25-19 scorecard. Although they finished in the middle of the pack and missed out on the finals, it wasn't a bad season for the ones. Had they managed one more win they would have finished in at least third position and possibly even as high as second - however that was 'if' and as they say, 'if' is a big word. At ninth on the ladder, the bowlers from Pakenham 2 (Division 2) had their backs to the wall against the third-placed Edithvale and were facing the very real prospect of relegation. However although beaten (67-75), they went down fighting and picked up enough points on three winning rinks to end the season in eighth spot and avoid the dreaded 'R' word. The best winning rink, in a welcome return to form, was that of Gary Crowley (S), Paul Currie (3), Jennifer Bainbridge (2) and Norm Box (L) with a score of 24-12. Pakenham 3 (Division 4) played its last round on the difficult synthetic green at Cranbourne RSL. However they seemed to be in control of the game from the very early ends and finished with three rinks up and a very comfortable winning score of 101-64. The best rink, with a score of 32-14, was Charles Harris (S), Paul Walter (3),

Stephen Arms led for Geoff Van Vugt’s winning Pakenham rink on the weekend. Lois Mashado (2) and Ray Pigdon (L). The threes finished the season in third position on the ladder. They have booked a tough semi-final against cross-town rivals Cardinia Waters' number one side, at Cardinia Waters, next Saturday. Pakenham 4 (Division 6) had spent most of the season drifting in and out of the top four and found themselves in sixth spot when play commenced against Armadale (fifth) in Round 18. At the halfway mark, the game was wide open, with Pakenham holding a slender lead of just 43 shots to 40. However the Lions pushed hard from there on and eventually got three rinks up for an overall 30-shot win, 97-67. Two rinks won by 13 shots - John Moore (S), Roger Platt (3), Bill Bosch (2) and Luis Aguilar (L) with a score of 29-16, and Peter Bott (S), Ken Clifton (3), Ray Leggett (2) and Norm Buckley (L) with a 26-13 score card.

The fours' win got them back into the four and finals contention. Their semi-final opponent next Saturday will be top of the ladder Keysborough at Keysborough. The six-a-side Pakenham 5 were given a walkover by Elsternwick Park last Saturday. Unfortunately for the Lions, the Pennant points they collected as a result left them in fifth position on the ladder - frustratingly, only one point behind the Dandenong Club (fourth) yet ahead of that team on percentage. Such is life! MIDWEEK It was a case of good news and bad news on the midweek front last Tuesday. The bad news was that only one of the four teams had a win, while the good news was that three of the four are in the semi-finals and two of those games are at home. The women's-only Pakenham 1 hosted

ladder-leaders Cranbourne One in a game that got away from them by the halfway mark and continued to go downhill from that point onwards. In the end they lost on all three rinks and were comprehensively beaten, 39-67. Fortunately the ladies clung onto fourth spot and will still feature in the finals. However, their first opponent will again be Cranbourne, at Cranbourne, so a considerable amount of regrouping will be required if they are to win that game and move on to the grand final. Pakenham 2 (Open Division 1) was at Bayside at Beaumaris. Unfortunately, the sea air did not prove beneficial to the visiting Lions and they dropped all three rinks in a 35-84 belting to end their season in fifth spot and out of the finals. For a team which has spent the majority of the season at the top of the ladder, Pakenham 3 (Open Division 3) seemed to drop the ball completely last Tuesday. Even with the benefit of the home ground advantage they were never in control in their game against the sixth-placed Dandy RSL REC and eventually conceded all three rinks in a 42-69 loss. Hopefully for them that was 'the game they had to lose' in order to win and they will put up a much stronger showing in their home semifinal against Cranbourne 3 on Tuesday. The six-a-side Pakenham 4 also spent a good part of the season at the top of their section and that is how they finished off. Playing seventh placed Willow Lodge at home, they never gave their opponents a sniff and eventually won comprehensively on both rinks with an overall score of 48-29. The best rink was that of John Hickman (S), Ray Leggett (2) and Trish Morris (L) with a 25-15 score card. The fours face Edithvale at home on Tuesday in their semi-final. HI-LO The winner for the final round (double the money) with number five was Stephen Bentley.

They're finals-bound at Cardinia Waters CARDINIA WATERS BOWLS A good finish to the home-and-away season by the Cardinia Waters Saturday teams has meant both have secured their places in the final four. The Division 4 side gained a home game and will play neighbouring club Pakenham and the Division 1, 12-a-side outfit will travel to Noble Park. The Division 4 side consolidated its place by defeating the Mulgrave Country Club 87-78. Skipper John Van Vugt with Dennis Patmore, lead, Gunter Baumbach, second, and Simon Koning, third, had a close game early but got on top after lunch and went on to win 27-20. The other winner was Phil Wynd, skipping for Cliff Heath, Gary Salomons and Graeme Taylor, who were in front from the second end. They lost a five on the 18th, which levelled the score at 15-apiece, but came back to win 19-15. Bill Hite skipped for Donny Gibson, Bill Tippelt and Mick Knight. His rink was behind until the 19th when they scored a six, and then

The Cardinia Waters Monday Night triples winners, from left to right, were Mick and Lydia Knight and Bill Hite. a three to take the lead but they ended up in a tied game, 23 each. Skipper Bryan Stevens, with Marion Stevens, Patricia Hutchinson and Len Judge, had a particularly hard-fought game with some lead changes. They lost a close one, 18-20.

The 12-a-side team went to Keysborough and won a close game, 52-50. John Carr skipped for Ian Smith, Bryan Anderson and Tom Gogan. They won 10 ends to three in the middle section and went on to win, 22-13. Dennis Smith with Alan Copley, Gary Bond field and Doug Eastick jumped to a 17-9 lead after 14 ends and withstood a charge from the home side to win 20-18. John Hutchinson was skipper for Ric Smart, Michele Bonfield and Ron Wakefield. They were well in the game early but lost their way from ends eight to 14 and eventually lost 10-19. The Midweek Division 2 side hosted Narre Warren and gave away an early lead to lose 44-54. Skipper John Van Vugt with Simon Koning, Gunter Baumbach and Graeme Taylor got away to a good start and held the lead all day to win 17-14. Phil Wynd was skipping for Jill Naylor, Dennis Stephenson and Ray Naylor. Theirs was a close game all day and they lost it on the last end, 17-18. The rink of David Blake with Donny Gibson, Bill Tippelt and Judy Wynd was

in the game at the halfway mark but won only two more ends in a 10-22 loss. The Division 3 side had the long trip to Chelsea and wasn't disgraced in losing 44-54. Mick Knight skipped for Alan Copley, Doug Eastick and Bryan Stevens. They overcame a slow start to be very competitive on the run home before losing 15-21. Skipper John Hutchinson, with Gary Bondfield, Bryan Anderson and Brian Byrne were behind from the fourth end but gave their score some respectability with a seven on the 20th end before losing 18-28. John Carr was skipping for Marie Stephenson, Dennis Patmore and Gary Salomon. He led early but won only two ends after lunch to go down 11-26. The finals of the Monday Night Triples were played last week and the winners were Bill Hite, skipper, with Lydia and Mick Knight. Runners-up were Phil and Judy Wynd, and Charles Stewart. The playoff for third saw Ray and Jill Naylor and Tom Harris defeat Ashley Graham, Trish Morris and Doug Eastick.

PAKENHAM GOLF Pakenham's members played a Stableford event on Monday, 26 February and it was a close call between the two Noels who regularly throw the anchor out to keep their handicap. Noel Bonne won the day in A Grade with 41 points and Noel Boyd came second with 40 points. The B Grade winner was Keith Barrot with 42 points with Danny McMinimee a close second with 41. Pakenham also had a famous Greek resident from the 'Main Street Village' score a hole-in-one on the second hole. Congratulations to Chris Kondarios on this feat, who celebrated late into the afternoon. The conditions on Wednesday were extremely windy, which made scoring particularly difficult for most players. A few members who scored extremely well were Peter Diss - winning A Grade with 42 points - and Peter

Dempster, scoring 40 points for runner-up. Ian Shennan won B Grade with 42 points on a countback from Trevor McQualter. Trevor won the Supercomp with 22 points and Leo DeJager won six balls with an eagle on the 13th and Bill Mcdonald won a pair of sunglasses for his shot on the eighth. The winner of the Wednesday twilight event was Domonic Lewin with 22 points. The ladies played for the March Monthly Medal on Thursday and one of Pakenham's newest members, Lynne Taylor, won the medal with 73 nett. Leah Barker also had 73 nett to win A Grade. On Friday Harry Elyasie won with 40 points and he also won with his scratchie, as did Steve Stoiljkovic. The scoring was of an extremely high stan-

dard on Saturday for the Monthly Medal. Andrew Went won A Grade with 66 nett, with Nick Gray runner-up with 67. Domonic Lewin won C Grade with 66 nett and Russell Allan was runner-up with 67 nett but the Monthly Medal winner was won by Bob Naismith with an incredible 63. Craig Clissold had 66 nett, which is normally good enough, but he had to settle for second. Craig, however, was second in the Supercomp and also won a kitchen voucher for best score over the last six holes. Mick Boyd had a hole-in-one on the eighth and if the old wives tale rings true it's expected that another hole-in-one isn't too far away because 'it happens in threes'. Neville Taylor and Darren Maggio won with their respective Scratchies. Sunday's winner was Tim Pratt with 41 points, with Tim Sallai runner-up on a countback with 40 points. pakenhamnews.starcommunity.com.au


MOTORING

Gear up with limited RF By Ewan Kennedy Mazda has introduced a limited edition to its MX-5 RF retractable fastback range. A serious car the Limited Edition features the Kuroi Sports Pack, aerodynamic additions, Brembo brakes and significant suspension upgrades. Small winglets near the front of the wheelarch openings direct air away from the wheels and along the sides of the body to smooth out the rush of air created by the little sports machine. A front strut bar links the front suspension towers to increase chassis stiffness. New design 17-inch diameter BBS alloy wheels are part of the package. Brembo’s opposed-piston, four-pot front brake calipers not only provide harder braking in heavy duty used, but also reduce unsparing weight by a significant two kilograms. The Brembos can increase fade resistance by as much as 26 per cent. A significant advantage if you want to take part in track days. The MX-5 RF Limited Edition colour choices are: Soul Red Crystal Metallic, Machine Grey Metallic, Snow Flake, White Pearl Mica, Ceramic Metallic and Eternal Blue Mica. A nice choice - however every car has a black roof. Mazda set up a testing drive route from Melbourne airport to the Yarra Valley and back, with a pause for lunch. It really showed of the Limited Edition to best advantage as this is exactly the sort of drive that keen Melbourne car enthusiasts are likely to take - well perhaps without visiting the airport… Handling is sharp and feedback through the wheel and the seat of your pants is excellent. You can control it on the throttle to really balance it beautifully in bends and it simply cries out for an interesting series of tight twist-

ing up-hill-and-down-dale roads. Want a Mazda MX-5 with an automatic transmission because you can’t be bothered changing gears yourself? Tough luck - this Limited Edition only comes with the lovely slickshifting six-speed manual. Love it. The MX-5 RF Limited Edition is priced at $55,748 driveaway and is on sale now. Only 110 have been produced for Australia so it might be smart to contact your Mazda dealer quickly if you’re a serious driver that wants something pretty special. The Mazda range is available for test drive at Pakenham Mazda, SouthEast Business Park, Pakenham. Phone 5942 5238.

Aero changes and BBS are the biggest visual changes in this Mazda MX-5, but there are also plenty of changes under the skin.
