A Berwick man has been charged following the discovery of a woman’s body in Cranbourne North on Saturday 7 July. A 36-year-old woman was located deceased at the Maria Court property just after 10.30am following reports of a fire. Homicide Squad detectives charged the 38-year-old man with one count of murder. Remanded in custody, he will appear in court at a later date. Detectives arrested the 38-year-old man at the residential address in Berwick just before 4pm on Saturday 7 July. All parties who were involved in the incident are believed to be known to each other. The occupants who lived at the address have been located safe. Police will await the results of a post mortem regarding the exact cause of death. City of Casey Deputy Mayor Amanda Stapledon, who also lives in the neighbourhood where the incident occurred, said the street was swamped with emergency services in a street that is usually “peaceful.” “The whole area was blocked off for a good part of the day,” she said. As a resident for more than 20 years, she said the incident came as such a shock; she began to shake from being upset. “It was devastating in itself and even more so as it was in my backyard and my concerns remain with those dear children,” she said. “It gives me an insight into how communities feel when these things happen but it also strengthens my resolve to make sure that our communities remain safe.” Another neighbour, Bill, who did not wish to reveal his surname, said although he didn’t know the family, the incident came as a shock. “We didn’t know much about her at all. We never heard any fighting between her and her husband,” he said. “Everyone is saying how much of a wonderful person she is.” Bill said he regularly heard children playing on the trampoline and the man would often take his boat out fishing. “I never ever heard him raising his voice or yelling or anything.” Domestic Violence Victoria (DVR) was devastated by the murder. It has reiterated the need for all political parties at both federal,

Libs pledge Clyde rail build By Brendan Rees An extension of the Cranbourne rail line to Clyde would be in place by the end of 2022 if the Liberals win this year's State Election, opposition leader Matthew Guy has promised. Mr Guy visited Cranbourne Railway Station on Wednesday 11 July for the announcement, saying a Liberal Nationals Government would build five kilometres of electrified double line from Cranbourne to Cranbourne East and terminating at Clyde at a cost of $487 million. Construction is expected to start in 2019. As part of the project, new stations would be built at Cranbourne East and Clyde along with 350 additional parking spaces. In the last year, the combined population of Cranbourne East and Clyde grew by 7,300 people, say the Liberals. "We need to ease the population squeeze which is why I am so focused on planning for population growth so every Victorian can enjoy living in their communities," Mr Guy said. He said the rail extension would be built with no new level crossings, adding key intersections at the South Gippsland Highway, Narre Warren-Cranbourne Road, Broad Oak Drive and Berwick-Cranbourne Road will be grade-separated. Local bus services will also be improved to connect commuters to the new railway stations at Cranbourne East and Clyde. Member for Bass, Brian Paynter said "Clyde is experiencing massive population growth and we need to make sure that when it comes to infrastructure we aren't playing catch up but rather getting ahead." Liberal Candidate for Cranbourne, AnnMarie Hermans said the rail extension would be a "huge boost" to residents in Cranbourne East and Clyde. "I am going to keep working with commu-

Member for Bass Brian Paynter, Leader of the Opposition Matthew Guy, and Liberal Candidate for Cranbourne Ann-Marie Hermans at the Picture: GARY SISSONS announcement at Cranbourne Railway Station. 182808 nity leaders to deliver more for our local community because Labor has been taking this area for granted for too long and we need more investment," she said. Acting Premier James Merlino said the Liberals could not be trusted when it came to public transport. "The Liberals have form with these announcements - when last in Government they promised to build Doncaster Rail and then did

nothing, they also promised a rail line to Avalon airport and that never happened either," he said. The State Government is currently spending $15 billion on the Cranbourne line, which includes funding planning work for the duplication of the Cranbourne line. The extension of the rail network to Clyde has also been one of Casey Council's wish list projects under its 'Commit to Casey' slogan.

City of Casey Mayor Geoff Ablett said earlier this year: "Fixing roads and extending rail will create jobs, improve access to essential services, ease cost of living pressures and help the local community and economy thrive." The Liberals have also said future upgrades to the Cranbourne line will be essential, including the full duplication from Cranbourne to Dandenong, and a future extension to Koo Wee Rup.

Growers gear up for pipeline fight on their home soil A group of Casey residents are fighting to get a proposed high-pressure gas pipeline rerouted - with farmers fearing their livelihoods could be lost. They are unhappy with a proposal from energy heavyweight APA to build a 60 kilometre pipeline from Crib Point to Pakenham that will cut through their properties. Fighting to save her farm is Lisa Corrigan, from Corrigan's Produce Farms in Devon Meadows - Australia's biggest producer of kale and growing millions of dollars of vegetables of year. She says she understood the need for the pipeline but running it under their prime vegetable land was not the place to put it as it would pose a risk to contaminating their fertile soil. "It's a cheap nasty route and they (APA) do not care about farmers or fresh food," she said. "The number priority should be to avoid high production agricultural land. Our con-

Darren and Lisa Corrigan are strongly opposed to the pipeline. 180995 cern is that it will impede our ability to farm the land which in turn impacts our contribution to Melbourne food bowl," she said. "We need food and we need energy, let's go the common sense reasonable route and align the pipeline along the boundary of the farm so that we can have both," Ms Corrigan said. Ms Corrigan added the proposed pipeline


would "destroy and devastate prime Victorian soil." "This is precious agricultural land. The only reason that we've been given from APA is cost it would cost them too much money." City of Casey Mayor Cr Geoff Ablett tabled a 159-strong petition opposing the plan at a 3 July council meeting. Council will now call on the State Government to develop an alternative route for the pipeline so the food bowl within the green wedge is not disrupted. "It's not just people who own farms either, its people who are concerned that why should someone be able to come in and halt so much food growing," Cr Ablett said. He said an alternative route may be more expensive but would not impact the farming crops, adding it would be a "Pretty sensible outcome one would think." AGL proposes to develop a gas import facility at Crib Point to deliver gas to Victorians.

Minister for Energy Lily D'Ambrosio said: "We support this facility because of its potential to bring cheaper gas into Victoria, help drive down energy prices and boost the reliability of gas supply. "However, strict environmental requirements will need to be met before any decisions are made," she said. APA understands landowners will naturally have questions and concerns about the potential impacts of a new pipeline construction. A spokesperson for the APA said the pipeline would "not run under any part" of the Corrigan's existing market gardens. "Our approach is to talk with landowners to better understand the current and planned uses of their land. That way we can work together to address environmental and other concerns, and minimise disruptions," he said. Member for Hasting Neale Burgess said APA had acted like "dictators," forcing their pipeline plan onto private properties while other options existed.

Tyson all set for a big trip By Brendan Rees A teen with an incurable condition is off to America this month to meet his comic book idols thanks to the support of the Casey community. Fitness coach Stuart Cunningham of CrossFit Cranbourne spearheaded a GoFundMe fundraiser for Tyson Stanley, 17, as he "deserves to go to the greatest pop culture convention in the world." With the community's help, $25000 was raised for Tyson so he can attend Comic Con an event that draws thousands of comic book, science-fiction, and fantasy lovers in San Diego, California on 19-22 July. Tyson has Fibrodysplasia ossificans progressive, an extremely rare connective tissue disease. Simply put, his muscle tissue and connective tissue such as tendons and ligaments are slowly being replaced by bone. It affects one in two million people. The funds will cover flights, accommodation, food, Comic Con tickets, spending money and "Everything he needs to have an epic adventure." "Rather than raising money to help fund cures, because that's already happening, I wanted to do something purely for him,"

Mr Cunningham said. "He's pretty restricted with the choices he's got - he relies heavily on other people to help." Mr Cunningham completed four gruelling days of fitness challenges from May 24-27 including a 7km swim at Mornington bay, a 300km on an Assault Air Bike, eight hours of CrossFit training, and a 51km run at Lyrebird Track in the Dandenong Ranges to help raise money. "All the money was intended to go towards him to have an incredible experience and adventure in the States," he said. For the past seven years, Tyson has been training with Mr Cunningham and the pair have developed a "power friendship." "He is tough as nails and rarely shows any frustration with his condition, Mr Cunningham explained on the GoFundMe page. "But I know deep down it would be hard. He is incredibly intelligent, loves to read, loves the footy and his Bulldogs, and is a mad Pop Culture fiend. From Marvel to DC, Walking Dead to Game of Thrones, Harry Potter to Rick and Morty, Tys knows about it all and loves it." Anyone wishing to donate can visit: https://

Murder charge after body found at house A man has been charged following the discovery of a woman's body in Hampton Park on Saturday 7 July. Police were called to the Redwood Avenue address just before midday where the 45-yearold man was arrested at the scene. Homicide Squad detectives have charged the man with one count of murder. He has been remanded in custody and is expected to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Monday 9 July.

The woman had been identified and the cause of death is yet to be determined. All parties involved are believed to be known to each other and police are not looking for anyone else in relation to the incident at this stage. Domestic Violence Victoria (DVR) said attitudes needed to be challenged that condone discriminatory attitudes towards women. "The best evidence on the likelihood of perpetration of domestic violence is attitudes to-

wards women and attitudes towards violence," said DVR chief executive Fiona McCormack said. The Australian Domestic and Family Violence Death Review report showed 80 per cent of the 152 intimate partner homicides in Australia between 2010-2014 were committed by a man killing his current or former partner. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

OPINION Not in keeping with old Berwick I read with great interest the article: VCAT fight for ‘Old Berwick’ in The Berwick Star News (28 June) on the residents of Wilson Street, Berwick fighting proposed two by two-storey units with basement garage. Reason: “Not in keeping with old Berwick”. And that the City of Casey is going in to bat for them against developer at VCAT. City of Casey reasons are: Neighbourhood character. Density. Site coverage. Building setbacks. Lack of separation. Landscaping and private open space. Spare a thought for your neighbours living in the old Narre Warren estate, with proposed Planning Amendment C198 by City of Casey for three to four-storey units. Picture this: Service Road, Lancaster Avenue, Moran Street and Sweeney Drive - boarded by Stewart Avenue and Narre Cranbourne Road. Just imagine how many three to four-storey units can be built in an area this size and consider the reasons by City of Casey for two units. It seems a bit unfair. Already residents are selling up and moving away from this area due to the fear of units being built next door to them. Think ahead ... slums of the future. Carolyn and Peter Hamill, Narre Warren.

Supply of land are included with the areas allocated for residential housing. A greater supply of titled land should drive price competition and help more Victorians own their own home. Of course with more land must come more infrastructure - the Liberals have recently announced a $30 billion road package including an East West Link and North East Link and the removal of 55 intersections to get Melbourne moving. Closer to home, the Liberals will ensure McGregor Road is duplicated and the Pakenham Bypass interchange completed with new entry and exit lanes; the busy roundabout at


The lack of available land in Casey and Cardinia has caused land prices to skyrocket - median lot prices are now $375,000 and $344,000 respectively, with Cardinia’s median increasing 41.2 per cent in the last 12 months alone. (Gazette, 4 July). This week Opposition Leader Matthew Guy announced that an elected Liberal Nationals Government will fast track the release of an additional 290,000 residential housing lots across Melbourne’s growth areas, including Casey and Cardinia. This land was rezoned for urban growth in 2010 but bureaucracy and red tape has so far kept it from the market. Areas for employment

Plant a tree instead Pioneer Park in Peel Street, Berwick, is the former Berwick Primary School site, which concerned citizens of Berwick worked long and hard to raise money to purchase the site and also, I believe, obtained grants to secure the land as a park - subsequently named Pioneer Park. It is scandalous that the City of Berwick sees fit to re-name this park in any one person’s name. Surely a tree planted to honour the former councillor would be sufficient. W. and M. Goodwin, Berwick.

SOCIALLY SPEAKING On the 4 July, the Cranbourne Star News published a story about the State Government announcing a site had been secured at 50S Eliburn Drive, Cranbourne East to start work on the Casey Fields (Five Ways) Primary School. The story created some strong opinions. Here is how they reacted online: Ryan Loose: Somebody should tell this Liberal Candidate for Cranbourne that the developer who owns the land to the east of Smiths Lane in Botanic Ridge where a new Primary School has been planned has refused to develop the land for five years and have been given a further five year extension by Casey Council. This same developer contributed thousands of dollars to the current Mayor of the City of Casey’s failed Lib-

Narrelle Osborne: I think it’s great the area is getting more primary schools but they need more secondary colleges to keep up with demand. Four different secondary colleges cannot service an area with nearly ten primary schools. On the 6 July, the Cranbourne Star News published a story about Victorian opposition leader Matthew Guy promising to allocate new housing lots in the City of Casey to tackle the housing affordability crisis. Here is

how our readers reacted online: Ryan Loose: What about the Developer in Botanic Ridge who has sat on the land it owns for five years without developing it and has been given an extra five year planning permit extension by Casey Council. This same developer contributed thousands of dollars to Cr Ablett’s unsuccessful Liberal Party campaign at the 2014 State Election. So we have a Liberal Party donor who refuses to develop land that has been available for housing for years!!! Chris Bateman: Anyone that thinks his strategy of fast tracking PSP approvals is as stupid as Matt Guy is, this won’t help first hope buyers one little bit! It will not see a dramatic drop in pricing, what an absolute flog.

They're the unsung heroes, tirelessly helping others without asking much in return - except for a loving pat. In honour of their services, a memorial was unveiled at KCC Park in Skye on Sunday 8 July which paid tribute to all defence and service dogs that have died while serving in the protection of Australia and its citizens. The event, organised by the Service Dogs Memorial Committee and Dogs Victoria, was officiated by the patron of Dogs Victoria, Peter Hitchener OAM. Dignitaries included City of Casey Mayor Cr Geoff Ablett and Deputy Mayor Amanda Stapledon who laid tribute wreathes for all dogs that have given their lives. The Last Post was performed at the conclusion of the ceremony. More than a million dogs have served the country with the Australian Defence Force since WWI. Service Dogs Memorial Committee founder Merilyn Syme OAM said the memorial provided a permanent tribute dedicated to the courage and sacrifice of canines.

"We felt we should have something acknowledging our passion we feel about our dogs to honour all dogs," she said. "It is extremely important; it's taken us a couple of years to raise the money. We're very proud and very grateful for the people turning out today. We admire the ability of all breeds of dogs and we want to look after their future and their welfare," Ms Syme said.

Australian War Animal Memorial Organisation President Nigel Allsopp said the memorial was a great opportunity to recognise the outstanding contribution of Australia's war and service dogs. "They're out there serving the community literally every hour so it's vitally important that we honour two legged diggers that have served our nation," he said.


Lots of housing set By Brendan Rees

"The most important policy both parties could commit to in order to address housing affordability would be to invest heavily in public housing," she said. "Clients we work with at CISS are often paying more than 60 per cent of their income in rent, and many are on the precipice of homelessness. All they want is safe, secure and affordable housing for their families." Member for Cranbourne Jude Perera said Matthew Guy could not be trusted when it came to housing. "When in Government, he rezoned land overnight to line the pockets of Liberal Party donors, while cutting funding to the schools

and hospitals our growing suburbs need," he said. "We're boosting housing affordability through our Homes for Victorians package - slashing stamp duty for first home buyers, doubling the first home owner grant in regional Victoria and giving first home owners the chance to co-purchase their house through the HomesVic shared equity scheme." Shadow Minister for Planning, David Davis said: "While local MP Luke Donnellan wakes up in his trendy inner-city suburb, he has no idea about the housing affordability crisis looming 45kms away in his electorate, and the cost of living pressures faced by his constituents."

A learner driver has been caught allegedly behind the wheel in Cranbourne with illicit drugs in their system on Wednesday 4 July. Casey Highway Patrol intercepted the Holden Commodore sedan on Duff Street at about 11.30am. The driver, a 27 year-old male from Cranbourne West allegedly did not have a qualified driver accompanying him and tested positive to drugs after undergoing an oral fluid test. Police seized the keys to the vehicle and the man will face court with charges of drug driver, learner driver unaccompanied and fail to display L plates.


New housing lots for new homes in the City of Casey would be created to tackle the housing affordability crisis if a Victorian Coalition Government is elected. Opposition leader Matthew Guy has committed to fast-track the release of 290,000 residential housing lots in the hope of giving more Victorians the chance of owning their own home. "This fast track will happen alongside our long-term strategic work to decentralise population growth to regional Victoria, to take pressure off Melbourne and ensure it does not become unliveable," Mr Guy said. An elected Liberal Nationals Government would fast-track the completion of the planning of all metropolitan Precinct Structure Plans by 30 June 2020. Mr Guy said housing lot prices in Casey had increased 35 per cent, jumping from an average of $270,000 in 2016, to $365,000 in 2017. For the outer areas of Melbourne the price of a housing lot has spiked by 54 per cent under Labor, Mr Guy added. South Eastern Metropolitan MP, Inga Peulich, MLC said housing prices in Casey had "spun out of control." "The Andrews Labor government has made it harder to live in Casey by introducing 12 new taxes and turning a blind eye to inflated housing prices," she said. "Fast-tracking housing developments in Casey will help first-time homebuyers and residents by alleviating the cost of living pressures." However, Cranbourne Information and Support Service (CISS) executive officer Leanne Petrides said while the Liberal's policy may assist a number of people purchase a home of their own, there were still more than 82,000 Victorian families and individuals on

Kids let their hair down By Brendan Rees Lego men had to come to the rescue for a grade one student last week after his hair caught fire at Tooradin Primary School. Luckily, it was a false alarm as the red flames on Rohan's hair had been sprayed on. His wacky hairstyle was one of many creations embraced by students who took part in Crazy Hair Day on Friday 29 June. From hair filled with mini toadstools, sparkly pipe cleaners and glitter, to an octopus, cupcakes, trolls, waves with sharks and surf-

ers, tropical beach with palm tree, coloured hair spray, and unicorn horns, the eccentric dos were boundless. Grade one Teacher Lauren Skitt said the day celebrated the end of term two with students and parents putting their creative talents to work. "The whole school community came together for a grand parade where students were able to display their wide variety of hair styles," she said. "Some of the students and parent must have got up very early before school to spray,

comb, tease, shape and preen their amazing hair creations. "It is always a great way to end the term before the mid-year break, bringing a great deal of excitement to the chilly winter day," Ms Skitt said. "The endless ideas for Crazy Hair Day are always impressive and bring a smile to everyone's face". The day also helped raise funds for the students to attend the Frankston Arts Centre where the school will hold its school production in October.

Trailer’s comeback Casey Cardinia Region

By Brendan Rees

Business Lunch

A Berwick man has been reunited with his ride-on-mower and trailer within days - and it was all thanks to the power of social media. Tony White said he was gutted to find his work equipment missing outside his Bemersyde Drive home at 7.30am on Friday 29 June. “That’s my living obviously. When that sort of stuff disappears what do you do?” he said. Mr White’s neighbour’s CCTV camera captured the moment thieves allegedly hooked up his trailer and ride-on-mower to their car before driving off about 5.20am. “(It was) parked on the street, one time I didn’t have a lock on it.” “What do you do? I could be jumping up and down and getting angry and bits and pieces. I just rang the police,” he said. With the help of family, Mr White said he also posted a post of Facebook’s Casey Crime Page and Pakenham Crime Page in the hope of

finding his equipment, worth about $17,000. By 12.30pm on Sunday 1 July, a member of Pakenham Crime Page messaged Mr White, saying they’d seen the trailer parked in Officer. “Somebody mentioned they saw a trailer what looked like it might have been abandoned,” he said. “I jumped in my car and went for a drive; drove around Officer and I managed to find it. “I found my trailer, ride on mower, my push lawn mower but my whipper snipper, blowers, hedges that was inside it, that’s all gone. The ramps to get my ride on mower off the trailer are gone; tool kits and bit and pieces are gone.” Mr White said he was feeling “pretty relieved“ however, to find the bulk of his equipment that he recovered in Arcadia Estate. “I got most it back but not all of it, I’m feeling a little bit lucky.” Narre Warren police are investigating. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Join us as we welcome Melanie Gleeson, Founder of Endota Spa and discover how she turned $5000 on a credit card into a business turning over $60 million! Today, the words ‘wellness’, ‘self-care’ and ‘spa’ are a well-known and understood part of the cultural zeitgeist. But in 2000 when Melanie Gleeson quit her full-time job to launch Endota Spa, the average Australian didn’t have any concept of the kind of business that she was wanting to build.

"Award nominations were assessed by an independent design jury and to again see such high recognition received for the iconic design of Bunjil Place is a testament to the contemporary and innovative design that fjmt envisioned for our community facility. "We are proud that the iconic design has created a welcoming and enlivening destination for residents and visitors to enjoy the many exciting entertainment, arts and cultural experiences on offer at Bunjil Place."

Teen charged with damage

The volunteers with a View By Brendan Rees They're the volunteers that are the backbone of the Smith Family. Cranbourne View Club (Voice Interest and Education of Women) are hoping to enlist more volunteers to its group and have their voices heard on issues of importance in Australian society. Members enjoy directly helping children and young people in need reach their potential through education, says committee member Gwyn Allan. "We have been meeting for seven years and have approximately 40 members and currently support eight students as children are the future

and the more we can help the better," she said. "We would love to see new members join us where many friendships are formed while helping the Smith Family. "As well as helping the children it is a great way for women to come together and make new friends," said Ms Allan. The group, which is only made up of women members, meet on the first Wednesday of each month at the Amstel Club in Cranbourne for their monthly meeting which includes lunch and a guest speaker who can be from many walks of life. For further information contact the club's president Trish Ransom on 5995 7037.

As tax time 2018 kicks off the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has profiled the five most common mistakes and the personalities most likely to have tax time troubles. Assistant Commissioner Kath Anderson said it’s often simple mistakes and misunderstandings that trip people up. The top five mistakes include taxpayers who leave out some of their income, claim deductions for personal expenses, forget to keep receipts or records of their expenses, claim for something they never paid for and claim personal expenses for rental properties. Ms Anderson says many of the mistakes are avoidable and there are a few things taxpayers

can do to make sure their tax time experience is stress-free. “Know what you can legitimately claim. There are three golden rules for work-related expenses. You must have spent the money yourself and not have been reimbursed, it must be directly related to earning your income, and you must have a record to prove it." “This tax time we will be paying close attention to claims for private expenses like home to work travel, plain clothes, and private phone calls. We will also be paying attention to people who are claiming standard deductions for expenses they never paid for.” “Around half of the adjustments we make are

because the taxpayer had no records, or they were poor quality. Yet it’s so easy to keep your records, using the myDeductions tool in the ATO app. Just take a photo, record a few details and then at the end of the year upload the information to your agent or to myTax.” Another tip is to include all your income. “A temp job, cash jobs, capital gains on cryptocurrency, or money earned from the sharing economy is all income that must be declared. We are constantly improving our data matching tools and even a one-off payment may be enough to raise a red flag. “We know some people lodge early because they want their refund, and that’s fair enough.."

AFFORDABILITY IS CRUCIAL: HIA HOUSING affordability must remain a key objective to support and encourage first home buyers to enter the market, according to the Housing Industry Association. “One of the best ways to address housing affordability is to increase land supply,” said Fiona Nield HIA’s Victorian executive director. “A lack of supply of new land is a core constraint to supplying housing that is affordable for new home buyers. “HIA has long advocated for more efficient delivery of shovel-ready land and reduced taxation and charges associated with new home building. “The current shortage of land across metropolitan Melbourne is starting to bite, resulting in additional cost to new home buyers. This needs to be urgently addressed.” Speaking in response to Opposition Leader Matthew Guy’s plan to tackle house affordability announced on 4 July, Ms Nield said: “This is a positive development, a plan that increases the supply of land for new homes, and we would hope reduces punitive taxes and charges imposed on that new land, which will flow through to new home buyers as lower upfront costs”. “Fast tracking land release is a key aspect to addressing affordability,” she said. “Current constraints are resulting in delays of up to two years from when a home buyer signs a contract with a builder to when their new home is built. “More efficient planning processes will also help together with improved access to land labour and resources. “A dedicated area of government to support housing supply is also essential to the future of the Victorian economy. “We are in a unique situation in Victoria where the housing industry is currently producing a record number of homes and plays

a significant role in the Victorian economy. “The economic benefits of the housing industry are significant with one in

10 people employed in Victoria in the construction industry. “Importantly we need to address housing

affordability so all Victorians can have a home to come back to at the end of each day.” ●

TAX FOCUS ON HOLIDAY RENTALS THE Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is setting their sights on the large number of mistakes, errors and false claims made by rental property owners who use their own property for personal holidays. “The ATO is focusing on taxpayers who claim deductions for holiday homes that are not actually available for rent or only available to friends and family,” Assistant Commissioner Kath Anderson said. “While private use by family and friends of a holiday home is entirely legitimate, it does reduce your ability to earn income from the property. This in turn impacts the deductions you can claim. “You can only claim deductions for your holiday home if your property is genuinely available for rent. You cannot claim for times when you were using it for your own personal holidays or letting friends and family stay rent-free. It’s not ok to expect everyone else to pay for your holiday.

“Holiday home owners also need to remember that if their property is rented to friends and family at mates rates, they can only claim deductions for expenses up to the amount of the income received.” Besides holiday rentals, the ATO is also focused on other times when a property is not rented or genuinely available for rent. Ms Anderson said some taxpayers claim their property is available for rent, but when the ATO investigates, it is clear they have little intention of renting it out. “We see things like unreasonable conditions placed on prospective renters, rental rates set above market rates, or failing to advertise a holiday home in a way that targets people who would be interested in it,” Ms Anderson said. “Incorrect rental property claims will not go unnoticed. Whether it is a genuine mistake or a deliberate attempt to overclaim, new technology, data matching and other systems allow the ATO to identify unusual claims. “Where something raises a red flag, it will be investigated. Property owners whose claims are disproportionate to the income received can expect scrutiny from the ATO.” Ms Anderson said all rental property owners should double-check their claims before lodging their tax return, even if submitting through a tax agent. “Make sure that you declare all rental income and only claim deductions for periods that the property is rented or was genuinely available for rent at market rates,” Ms Anderson said. “Be sure to keep accurate records of the income you receive from your rental property, expenses you incur, and evidence of the property being rented or genuinely available for rent at market rates. You should also keep records of who stayed at the holiday home and when, including the time you and your family stay at the property.” For more information on holiday homes, visit ●

Gallery showcases students’ art By Brendan Rees Talented students added a splash of colour at the Lynbrook Village Shopping Centre with a recent exhibition of their art work. The centre teamed up with Lyndhurst Secondary College in hosting a 'Grow your ideas' teen art competition with students' artwork displayed at the centre's foyer for the past six weeks. They received 59 entries, up from 29 last year with members of the public voting for their favourite. Student prizes were awarded at a presentation hosted by Lynbrook Village Shopping Centre at Suburban Burger on Thursday 28 June where the school also held a celebratory lunch. The aim of the exhibition was for students to develop their individual creativity, said principal Konnie Prades. "The kids are very talented, their very excited and it's really, really wonderful to see how much effort they've put into their work and how proud they are of their art work," she said. Art teacher Georgina Gaitanis said she was impressed with the variety of art pieces, add-

Winners from left were Rifat (first prize), Alex (runner-up), Austin (third prize) and Bonnsitchick (People's Choice Picture: BRENDAN REES award). 182430 ing many students dedicating their time outside of school hours. "It was their own idea, they had their own inspiration but the theme they work with was 'Culture incorporating the community and the environment,'" she said. Lynbrook Village Shopping Centre's marketing manager Mel Brown said it was an exciting

concept and a great opportunity for students. "This program is great for us because it helps out the school; it encourages the students and helps us out because we can use the centre as a forum to exhibit the art," she said. "We give the school thousands of dollars' worth of art supplies which we source through one of our retailers." The winning art piece was painted by year 11 student Rifat for his piece 'Mother Nature' using a Digital/Adobe photo shop method, taking 15 hours to create. For his prize, Rifat won a $300 gift card for the shopping centre and his work will be printed on the centre's directories book mark. Runner-up was year 12 student Alex for his acrylic painting 'Who you are defines your surrounding' with year 12 student Austin taking out third prize for his work 'The light of the spiral shows the connection to the community' using a camera, tripod, steel wool, a battery, rope and whisk to create, while year 11 student Bonnsithick, won the People's Choice award for her painting 'Smile, a simple gesture that brings real peace to you and the world.'

Key to happiness By Brendan Rees A Cranbourne North woman has had her faith in humanity restored after a Good Samaritan found her car keys. Cate Parkinson said she had returned to her car at Cranbourne Park Shopping Centre, only to realise her keys were missing on Wednesday 27 June at 3.30pm. After having no success checking the bottom of her shopping bags, she said "I didn't panic but I thought I must have left them in Kmart." "I thought by the time I get down there they're probably handed in." However, Cate said the staff at Kmart hadn't received any lost keys so she began tracing her steps in the store. "I started to look at the different shelves, the first shelve no go, second shelf, yes there they were, I grabbed them then an Indian lady with a baby and she was just standing there," Cate said. "She said 'Oh are they yours?' And I said 'Yeah their mine, have you been guarding my keys?" Cate said. "And she said 'Yes I have.' She said 'I was going to take them to the service desk but she said 'No, I decided to wait, I thought you would come back'" Cate says she was blown away by the woman's generosity. "She just did it out of the kindness of her heart; I was so touched that someone would even do that." "I reckon she was standing there for 10 minutes guarding my keys and I couldn't thank her enough," she said. "I was very grateful and I just want to honour that lady."

Emerging from the dark By Russell Bennett At 27, Matt Runnalls is a multiple premiershipwinning midfielder from his time at a number of clubs in the local area. Sound relatable? His is a story that’s far from uncommon. In fact, it comes from a situation that’s so eerily similar to that faced by thousands of people across the country. But yet it’s one so often left alone - left unspoken under the guise of a 20-something-year-old’s perceived cloak of invincibility, or the fear or awkwardness of opening up. Since he was 17, he’s battled severe anxiety and depression, which led to several suicide attempts. He’s also lost seven close mates who were facing their own mental health battles and couldn’t find a way through the darkness. So Matt refuses to shy away from his battle. He embraces it and hits people right between the eyes with his cold, hard, truth. It even led to him starting his own foundation, and now a registered mental health charity, Mindfull. Later this month, Matt will head to Casey Stadium in Cranbourne to give a presentation on his mental health journey, focussing in no small part on one factor that most footballers would have dealt with in an on-field sense - resilience. It’s a vital part of his self-disciplined, holistic approach to staying well every single day. “It’s a really good opportunity for those who’re out there to understand - mental illness, or no mental illness, mind health challenges or not, it’s about building resilience and that’s the only reason I keep well,” he said about his presentation, which will be open to the public on 29 July. “It’s basically disciplined approach I have every single day that I go through - in good days or bad - to ensure I have a better tomorrow. It’s just an opportunity for anyone - kids, adults, whoever - to see how someone goes about living with bipolar but also lives a healthy, happy and fulfilling life and is now able to come out of those situations that we find ourselves in that are inevitable - losing a mate, work stresses, relationship issues, financial strain, anything.” So many people are constantly focused on training the physical, but the mental side is just as important. “How can we expect to be healthy and putting the best versions of ourselves out into the world if we don’t put any emphasis on, or work into our mind?” Matt said. “We talk about compassion, we talk about gratitude, we talk about aligning our values, and what we can control in life. “With therapy and medication, you’re putting your wellness in someone else’s hands. It’s all well and good to talk to people about what you’re experiencing - I’m obviously all for that, it’s crucial - but that only works when it’s complemented by being proactive instead of reactive. “We all possess unlimited amounts of com-

Matt Runnalls and Chris Adair joined forces for the second running of the Hampton Park Junior Football Club 'legends game' - which last year honoured the memory of one of Matt's friends, Shaun Ross. passion, love, kindness, care, empathy and support - we’ve just got to start using them and the world will be a better place. “It’s just about trying to tap into that by talking about lived experiences about how I’ve lost seven mates, how I’ve had suicide attempts, how I’ve lived off the street ... in terms of lived experiences there isn’t much I haven’t done in my short 27 years. Hopefully I’m able to share those experiences so other people don’t have to go through the same things. I’ve lived this journey so other people don’t have to - that’s the way I see it. “This is the beauty of what I talk about - it’s not just mental illness and suicide, it’s mental wellness. This is targeted at absolutely everybody. My focus is on finding value, self-worth, belonging, and purpose. Without those four things, life is pretty shit. “I’m able to bounce out of situations now that would have kept me down and out for weeks or months at a time previously. This is about prioritising things in our daily lives to ensure we have a better tomorrow.” Matt said it was environments, such as football clubs, that could provide a real source of strength or support for those doing it tough.

“It’s in environments like that where people are often really worried about how they are perceived without getting mocked, shamed or embarrassed for talking about the things that really matter,” he said. “But it’s an absolute strength to speak up and show that vulnerability. “The moment I told my club that I was struggling, things became a lot easier for me. “They understand, and if they don’t, they offer you that environment where they have your back. For all those footballers who are out there and have something going on and are worried about speaking to their club - there are some pretty awesome people at football clubs, you’ve just got to get vulnerable and talk about the things that matter.” Mindfull’s Mental Health and Wellness Seminar will be held on Sunday, 29 July from 3.00 to 4.30pm at Casey Stadium. The cost is $10 per person. To register, visit mindfulaus or for more information call the stadium on (03) 5996 6052. For more information about Mindfull, search ‘Mindfull Aus. Stand up against Stigma’ on Facebook. Anyone needing help can contact Lifeline on 13 11 14.

Matt Runnalls won three senior premierships across stints at current West Gippsland Football Netball Competition clubs Garfield and Cora Lynn.

The Cavaliers are back with a vengeance By Hayley Wildes It was a busy weekend of Big V hoops for the Casey Cavaliers, with six games played. The State Championship Men fell at Hawthorn on Saturday night, with the Magic proving too strong when it mattered most, claiming a 91-86 win. Raheem Lemons (24 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists) and Matt Donlan (18 points, 4 rebounds) were impressive despite the defeat. The Cavs bounced back at home the following day though, claiming an important win against Corio Bay, 93-84. Lemons (23 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists) was again dominant, while Brent Hobba (20 points, 7 rebounds) provided important buckets. The Cavs (11-8) sit fifth as we near the business end of the season. The Division 1 Women made light work of Warrandyte at home on Saturday night, claiming a comprehensive 89-64 win. The Cavs had

five players score in double figures, led by Tarryn Wilkin (20 points, 15 rebounds). Amanda Hobba was involved in everything as she stuffed the stat-sheet with 13 points, 8 assists, 6 rebounds and 3 steals. After losing two in a row, the Cavs (15-4) have rediscovered their groove with back-toback wins to see them remain second on the ladder. The Youth League 1 Men are struggling for consistency this season, and that was again the case over the weekend. After disposing of the third-placed Werribee Devils on the road on Friday night, they suffered a loss at home on Sunday afternoon. Against Werribee, Casey was leading by 11 points in the final quarter, before the Devils came storming home to force overtime. Thanks largely to Oyiti Amum (20 points, 15 rebounds) and Luke Beard (26 points, 5 rebounds), the Cavs prevailed in overtime, 90-85. Facing Corio Bay on Sunday, the Cavs were

unable to take advantage of Jordan Gooiker's 27 points as they fell, 80-73. Amum was again dominant with 15 rebounds and 14 points. The Youth League 2 Women snapped their two-game losing streak with a 76-point demolition of Mornington at home on Sunday, 12549. In an incredible performance, a stunning eight Cavs' players scored in double figures, led by Bethany Dodgson (22 points, 9 rebounds) and Rebecca Peacock (19 points, 13 rebounds, 6 steals). The Cavs (13-2) remain on top of the ladder. Round 16 action sees a Youth League 2 Women and State Championship Men doubleheader tip-off at Casey Stadium from 6pm on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Youth League 1 Men host Hume City on Friday night from 8pm, before heading to Ballarat to face the Miners on Saturday afternoon. The Division 1 Women face Hawthorn on the road on Saturday night.

MORNINGTON PENINSULA NEPEAN DIVISION TWO - ROUND 13 Karingal inflicted Pearcedale with a 19-point loss at Ballam Park Reserve on Saturday, 8.12 (60) to 6.5 (41). The Bulls led at every change and got the game winning break in the second term, booting four goals to two to be up 29 at half time. The Panthers fought hard to win the second half, booting three goals to one to put some respectability back on the scoreboard. Down at Dromana, Devon Meadows couldn't overcome the home side to lose comfortably, 8.15 (63) to 5.8 (38). The Panthers still had a fighting chance when they were down by 16-points at three quarter time, but the home side kicked the only goal of the final quarter, with Rikki Johnston (four goals) in particular on fire in a low scoring affair. For the visitors, Mat Fletcher continued his superb year with another strong display, while Michael Theodoridis slotted two. EASTERN FOOTBALL LEAGUE DIVISION 1 - ROUND 12 Rowville claimed a comprehensive win over North Ringwood at Quambee Reserve on Saturday. The Hawks were in control after halftime, running out 13.16 (94) to 8.6 (54) winners. Ziggie Alwan (four goals) was dominant up forward, while Alex Frawley was superb. Noble Park put together a strong first half, but was unable to stay with Norwood as the game progressed at Mullum Reserve, falling 14.14 (96) to 9.14 (68). Kyle Martin (three goals) and Will Collis battled hard for the Bulls. SOUTHERN FOOTBALL LEAGUE DIVISION 2 - ROUND 12 The Doveton Eagles' magical season continued with an obliteration of Skye at Power Reserve. After an even first quarter, the Eagles outscored their opponents 9.1 (55) to 0.3 (3) in a whirlwind second term. Darren Sheen (eight goals), Peter Dye and Khaled Kandakji (four goals each) were electric up forward as Doveton claimed a massive 27.12 (174) to 5.9 (39) win. Keysborough dominated Clayton at home on Sunday, with the Burras running out 9.12 (66) to 3.11 (29) winners.

Lions making some noise By Nick Creely SOUTH EAST FOOTBALL NETBALL LEAGUE REVIEW - ROUND 11 (SPLIT ROUND) Pakenham coach Ash Green simply won't be drawn into finals talk despite his Lions now within striking distance of Officer in fifth spot. The Lions' stingy defence took its first real scalp of the season in horrendous, torrential conditions at Toomuc Reserve, knocking off a Beaconsfield side battling with injury, 6.10 (46) to 3.4 (22). Despite being just two points away from Doug Koop's Kangaroos and with a superior percentage, Green isn't talking the 'F' word just yet, and wants his side to keep building its form. "We aren't talking finals; we were just looking to beat a side inside the top five to get some enthusiasm in the second half of the year," he said. "We've lost a few games we should have won, so we aren't thinking about finals, we just want to be competitive. We're up against it, so we won't look that far ahead." Missing key cogs in Scott Meyer, Nathan Langley, Lachlan Modica, and the Eagles couldn't quite adjust to the conditions, but remained well and truly in the contest at half time, with both sides kicking just the one goal apiece. The importance of James Harrison (three goals) in the attacking half proved pivotal in the end, with the Lions locking down defensively and managing to find some run in the wet to kick five goals after half time. Green was proud of his side for bouncing back from a lacklustre effort last week. "We were really disappointed in our effort against Tooradin last week, and we made a conscience effort to have a really good week on the track - we had a couple of guys who were out injured, and they put a bit of pressure on the playing group," he said. "We brought a few new players in, so I'm pretty proud of the boys - conditions wise, it was miserable and two sides were out there having a crack, so it wasn't probably the greatest spectacle. "To our credit, we played well, so (I'm) happy with the performance." Stats suggest that Green's side is firming into fifth spot, with his improved defence leaking on average just 82 points, less than Officer. "It's important to have a strong defence, and we've been able to throw different blokes down there at times, and like any good side, you have to be versatile," he said. "We're really happy with our backline, we

Berwick star Travis Tuck celebrates a goal against Officer on Saturday. 182662 Pictures: ROB CAREW put a couple guys down back and they did a terrific job, but it doesn't mean they'll be there the following week against Narre. "We can certainly defend, but our problem has been scoring, and that's still a work in progress, that's for sure." Down by the Westernport, Tooradin-Dalmore pushed ladder-leaders Narre Warren to the brink, but the Magpies' experience ensured they could walk away with the four points, 13.8 (86) to 7.10 (52). The Magpies looked flat-footed for most of the contest in muddy conditions, and amazingly, found themselves down by under a kick at three-quarter time after the Seagulls kicked four goals in the term. It took a major spark for Matt Shinners' side to emerge with a win, with young pair Peter Gentile and Tom Miller finding much needed goals early in the final term, before the visitors slammed the door shut with a further four goals. The experience of Brad Scalzo and Michael Collins in the guts helped the Magpies over the line with polished displays, while Seagull skipper Matt Livermore, Andrew Dean (three

goals) and Brad Lenders were instrumental in a terrific effort by the home side. In the final game on the weekend, Berwick kept Officer goalless in a defensive masterclass at Starling Road, 10.11 (71) to 0.6 (6). While the Wickers still managed to kick 71 points in the rain, it's been a wonderful three weeks of defence that has brought Stewart Kemperman's side back into second spot. Incredibly, the Wickers have conceded over 100 points less than any side in the competition, and are building into their best form. The Wickers jumped out of the blocks to kick three first quarter goals, and steadily built the lead throughout the day as Travis Tuck, Matthew Young, Bryce Rutherford and Madi Andrews dominated the middle. But in defence - despite missing Michael Riseley - the Wickers didn't give the Kangaroos an inch, leaving them precariously hanging onto fifth spot on the ladder. Earlier in the round, back on 9 June, Cranbourne dominated Doveton at home, 35.21 (231) to 3.2 (20). Round 12 will be another split round, with Cranbourne and Tooradin-Dalmore to do battle,

City is within striking distance of the ladder lead By Nick Creely FOOTBALL FEDERATION VICTORIA SOCCER WRAP - ROUND 14 STATE LEAGUE 1 - SOUTH EAST Despite a torrid last month of football, Casey Comets pushed Beaumaris SC all the way to draw 1-1 in horror conditions on Saturday afternoon. The Sharks and Comets played out a fiercely fought game, with Dejan Radojicic scoring the Comets' only goal in the 50th minute. As a result of the draw, the Comets remain in 10th spot with three wins, and will look to get a much needed win against Richmond SC at home this coming round. In other results, Warragul United defeated Eltham Redbacks 3-1, while South Springvale went down in a heavy defeat to Manningham United, 4-0. STATE LEAGUE 2 - SOUTH EAST Berwick City remains within striking distance of top spot on the State League 2 ladder, defeating Heatherton United 1-0 on Saturday afternoon at Jack Thomas Reserve. It took until the 58th minute for City to strike, with skipper Orlando Mejias scoring his ninth goal for the season courtesy of a penalty, setting up the win. Mejias was superb as per usual, leading from the front in trying conditions that tested the skills of both sides. The City has one of the stingiest defences in the competition, and sit just two points away from top spot. Doveton SC , meanwhile, solidified their

The Doves took in a 3-1 lead at half time, but saved their best for the second half, scoring a further four goals in a dominant display.
