More parking pledged for Cranbourne commuters An elected Liberal Nationals Government will invest $2.5 million to provide an extra 250 asphalted car parking spaces at Cranbourne Railway Station. "We'll provide more parking at Cranbourne station and extend the rail line to Clyde," Victorian Opposition Leader Matthew Guy said. "This will help locals to get around faster, while Daniel Andrews just wants to build a tunnel to Broadmeadows in 2050. "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." The new carpark will replace the unsafe, informal parking that is currently taking place on the vacant Vic Track land adjacent to the station. This paved extension will allow for easy access to the station for the elderly and disabled and ease the pressure on carpark availability for commuters. The extra parking will also remove 250 cars a day from our roads, easing the congestion squeeze. "A Matthew Guy- led government will get things done in Cranbourne," Liberal candidate for Cranbourne Ann-Marie Hermans said. "As I knock on doors and speak to residents in Cranbourne, time and time again the lack of safe parking at the station is brought up. We're going to fix that." This announcement builds on the Liberal

Victorian Opposition Leader Matthew Guy and Liberal candidate for Cranbourne Ann-Marie Hermans. 185126 Nationals' commitment to extend the rail line from Cranbourne to Clyde to accommodate the population boom that's happening in Cranbourne, Cranbourne East and Clyde.

The Liberal Nationals will expand and improve our rail and road networks by rebuilding the Cranbourne rail network and removing intersections at Thompsons Road and Western Port Highway in Lyndhurst, and Hall Road and

Western Port Highway in Cranbourne West. The Liberal Nationals claim only they can deliver congestion-busting infrastructure without blowing the budget.

Residents fear unloved heritage site devaluing homes By Jessica Anstice


Concerned residents of Alarah Estate in Cranbourne West are urging the City of Casey to start maintaining the poor appearance of a heritage listed property located nearby their homes. The heritage listed property, located between City Vista Circuit and Ercildoune Court, is a neglected dilapidated house with broken windows, shattered glass and rusty metal around the property. Resident Jennifer Fitzsimmons said when the development of Alarah Estate was tendered by Wolfdene it included a proposal to restore the house and landscape the property into a communal area. The property was handed back to the council around three years ago. "Nothing besides securing the house from intruders has been done for over five years," Ms Fitzsimmons said. "This has affected the overall appeal of the estate as it lacks this integral community infrastructure and affected the value of the properties immediately surrounding the park.

"More than being an eyesore, I believe this is an OHS concern particularly since this is meant to be a park where children play." Ms Fitzsimmons said many of the residents purchased their properties due to its view of the park and advertised development of the park. "However residents only have a view of a paddock and a dilapidated house," she said. "Myself and fellow residents would like to know when this will be rectified. "We believe there is much potential for this property as a valuable communal area, with its well established fruiting trees and open grass area, something sorely lacking within the Alarah Estate." City of Casey city planning acting manager Kathryn Seirlis said the Council will commence preparation of a Master Plan for the parkland surrounding the Ercildounde Heritage building in early 2019. "As part of the Master Plan, Council will consult with the community regarding their suggestions for this property," she said. "The property holds large historical importance as it is one of the remaining farm-

Ms Seirlis said in 2016, Council undertook works to secure the building, as well as re-

moved temporary fences. "It's hoped that throughout the process of developing a Master Plan, Council can determine a future for this site that is beneficial for all and will consider recommended projects through the annual budget process," she said.

With Carmen Williams, Narre Warren entrepreneur

What is something people don't know about you? Nine years ago I shaved off all of my long blonde hair. I raised money but that was not my primary motivation. I was always known as 'the girl with the long blond hair' so in my quest for self-discovery I shaved my hair to ponder the questions about who I would be if I didn't have long blond hair anymore. Spoiler alert... I was the same Carmen I always was, but now I could feel wind on my head. The responses by others around me were fascinating. Some people mourned the loss of my hair, others told me that I was brave and children were curious and wanted to approach me (but were advised by their parents not to). What was your most memorable moment? Having my children was very memorable. With my first, I had a ceaser and was a bit out of it in the recovery room, when I looked up and I thought 'why is he holding a blanket in his arms?!' and then I realised that there was a baby in it! With my second I remember her being placed on my chest and her big eyes taking it all in. What's the best thing about being a mum? The constant reminder to stay in the moment and be fascinated by everything around me. And cuddles too. What is your favourite movie? I don't have one. I don't watch many movies and don't watch any movies more than once. Although if I do want some escapism, I'm happy to sit down to a comedy, drama or action movie. If you were PM for a day, what would you do? This one is hard because I understand that change in a democracy takes time and I don't think that I could have a huge impact in one day. The best way to leverage the position for one day would be to listen to people's perspectives and information that I would only have access to as a PM, synthesis this, put my two cents in and then share these insights with the lead-

ership that would take over the next day and where appropriate, the Australian population via responsible (non-sensationalist) reporters. At school I...... was uncoordinated. I never skipped rope or did handstands. I am changing that now. I can now skip rope and am working on double unders and handstand push ups. Favourite holiday spot in Australia? Anywhere with a beach or a mountain and not too many people.

Which six dinner guests dead or alive, would you invite to dinner? Just my mum. What's your favourite book? I love books and read voraciously. I don't think I can pin it down to one. One that rocked my world recently is The Obstacle is the Way. Best concert you have been to? The one in my living room where we put on loud music and dance around like crazy.

THREE … Tips to getting a good night's sleep


Start calming your mind and body in the afternoon Tiring yourself through exercise will help but try to do it in the first half of the day. Four to six hours before bed, limit your intake of alcohol, caffeine and nicotine and two hours before bed, avoid using your electronic devices.


Be consistent around bedtime Avoid napping during the day, develop a bedtime routine and try to go to bed and wake up at the same time each day (even on weekends) and keep your bed for sleeping only; don't read, watch TV or use your phone in bed.


Get out of bed if you can't sleep If you haven't been able to sleep after 20 minutes, get up and do something boring in dim light until you're tired and then try again. And repeat as often as needed. Write down any thoughts you're stuck on in a notepad to get them out of your head.

14yo crash boy arrested Major Collision Investigation Unit detectives have charged a teenage boy as their investigation into a crash in Hampton Park continues. Investigators have been told a gold Nissan Maxima lost control at a roundabout and struck a pole at the corner of Ralph Crescent and Cornell Place about 5.30pm on Tuesday (4 September).

The car had been reported stolen from a Springvale address on 30 August. A 15-year-old Cranbourne girl who was in the car was taken to hospital, where she remains in a critical condition. Three other occupants, a 15-year-old Cranbourne East boy, 13-year-old Cranbourne girl and 14-year-old Cranbourne North boy, sus-

tained minor injuries. The Cranbourne North boy was last night charged with theft of motor vehicle and is appearing before a children's court. A fifth teenager, a 14-year-old Hampton Park boy, was arrested shortly after the incident and has been released pending further enquiries.

Detectives are yet to establish who was driving the vehicle and the investigation is ongoing. Police are continuing to appeal for anyone who witnessed the collision, has dash cam footage or saw the car driving prior to the crash to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at

Funding boost for kinders Kindergarten children in the local area will be among the first to benefit from the Andrews Labor Government's Australian-first school readiness funding next year, helping them get the most out of kinder and ensuring they start school on track. Minister for Early Childhood Education Jenny Mikakos and Member for Cranbourne District, Jude Perera MP have announced the 580 Victorian kinders that will share in $58.1 million to engage with experts and access evidence-based programs to help kids stay on par with their peers. "We know that one in five children start prep not ready for school and if they start behind, they tend to stay behind," Ms Mikakos said. "School readiness funding means investing in the things that will truly make a difference to a child's life. "We're helping them very early in their education journey, so they can start their first day at school ready, on track and on par with their peers." City of Casey has 122 kinders which will share in $2,071,893.00 for 2019 - a 14 percent increase in base funding for the area. Census data shows that one in five Victorian children start school developmentally vulnerable and once behind, they tend to stay behind.

"We're investing in our littlest Victorians in our local area so they get the best possible start in life and make the most of these valuable kinder years," Mr Perera said. School readiness funding will allow Victorian kinders to tap into the expertise of speech and occupational therapists, language and literacy professionals and child psychologists, who can then boost the capability of both parents and teachers. It's the first time in Australia such funding has been made available to kindergartens and will become a permanent part of Victoria's early childhood education funding. School readiness funding will be rolled out to all kinders statewide by 2021, with the 580 kinders part of the first tranche of 25 local government areas, which includes suburbs in Melbourne's west and south, and regional areas such as Horsham, Mildura, Swan Hill, and Gippsland. All kindergartens operated by an Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations in Victoria will also receive the funding next year. This needs-based funding aims to reduce the impact of educational disadvantage on children's learning and development and improve outcomes in communication (language development), wellbeing (social and emotional regulation) and access and participation.

Cranbourne MP Jude Perera and Minister for Early Childhood Education Jenny Mikakos. It is part of the Government's landmark $202.1 million Education State Early Childhood Reform Plan, which recognises the im-

portance of providing families with strong support in early childhood, so kids are ready for kinder, ready for school and ready for life.

Kellie Banks: I hope they plan to fix the intersection onto Camms Road too. Darren OB: Oh if only this electorate was smart enough to vote against the Andrews government, but it won't happen because most people think they'll get free stuff if he stays in power.

An Australian "cultural icon" was the star attraction at Casey Grange Village on Wednesday 5 September when the 2018 Melbourne Cup paid a visit. The $200,000 cup, which was in Cranbourne as part of the Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour, was escorted into the village clubhouse by 1959 Caulfield Cup winning jockey Trevor Dyer. It was soon surrounded by people keen for a photograph or a selfie. In the lead up to the running of the 2018 carnival, the cup will visit 37 destinations in five countries including, for the first time, the UK, Ireland and Seoul, where it will be present for the Korean Cup. "It is really about taking the cup to the people," said tour organiser Joe McGrath. Cup Ambassador Keith Hillier, who has enjoyed a long career as a racing writer and broadcaster, said the tour was a rare opportunity for people to view the Melbourne Cup up close and even hold the famous trophy. "It is the most famous trophy in Australia. It is a cultural icon," Mr Hillier said. He said the cup was called a "loving" cup because of its three handle design, representing the owner, trainer and jockey. "People love talking about the Melbourne Cup and they always have a memory to share. People will tell me stories about when they were 15 and took a day off school and backed a winner," Mr Hillier said.

Alkira pays tribute By Jessica Anstice Alkira Secondary College held a Holocaust Remembrance Day Thursday, 30 August. In attendance were Gia Lipshut who told her story of survival during the Holocaust, Les Kausman from Courage to Care, City of Casey Cr Rosalie Crestani, students and teachers from Mount Scopus Memorial College, other special guests from the Jewish Community and Year 9 and 10 students from Alkira Secondary College. The Year 9 students were the audience and the Year 10 students ran the ceremony. "Discovering parts of my history that I'd never delved into enlightened me to the atrocities my ancestors had to live through. It made me grateful and aware to stop anything like it from occurring again," Year 12 student Dylan Winestone said. Year 10 student Jessie Little said, "The Commemoration Ceremony taught me that no matter what I am facing and finding hard right now, there is always someone out there doing it harder or struggling more, so don't stress the small things and take every opportunity possible to live every day as the last." Chairman of Courage to Care Tony Weldon said, "A thousand thanks to all of you for the magnificent way in which you are teaching about and learning from the past. "It is in this way that all involved will go into the wide world and contribute to it becoming the place we all want it to be."

Bikie gunman jailed By Cam Lucadou-Wells A Hells Angels bikie gang member who shot two men in the car park of Hampton Park Tavern will be deported after serving at least six years in jail. Vince Tominiko, 26, of Hampton Park, shot one victim in the buttocks and the other into his lower abdomen at point blank range during a relative's party early on 19 November 2017. He was sentenced at the Victorian County Court on 7 September for intentionally causing serious injury in circumstances of gross violence, intentionally causing injury and possessing an unregistered handgun.

The two victims - who were brothers aged 27 and 21 - were among a group of nine standing in the car park about 12.45am, the court heard. A male punched one of the victims in the head. Tominiko produced a firearm - believed to be a cut-down 0.22 calibre rifle - and shot the victim in the buttocks. At one stage, Tominiko fended off a woman who tried to restrain him. He walked to the second victim and shot him twice. After the first shot, another male dragged the second victim to ground, kicked him and stomped on his head. Tominiko then shot the second victim in

the lower abdomen at point-blank range. Both brothers were taken to The Alfred hospital by ambulance. In sentencing on 7 September, Judge Susan Pullen noted the second victim had suffered considerably since life-saving surgery to repair part of his wounded bowel. "You have a number of unresolved issues. "Until you address them and change your attitude towards violence and what is acceptable behaviour, I remain concerned for the members of the community." Tominiko was jailed for up to eight years, four months and 49 days, with a non-parole period of six years.

Facebook mugger grabs second chance By Cam Lucadou-Wells A Hampton Park man who used a Facebook buy-and-sell page to lure and violently rob unsuspecting victims has been praised in court for turning around his life. Mabil Naghoy, 20, pleaded guilty to five robberies in which he and other males ambushed and stole two iPhones and $6220 cash from online buyers and sellers late last year. Among his victims was a father - responding to a 'Facebook Marketplace' ad selling an iPhone X - met with Naghoy and was bashed in front of his three children on Boxing Day. A 13-year-old girl tried in vain to protect her father during the attack. The man's primary school age sons, watching from the car were said to be "extremely traumatised" by the event, according to police. After punching and kicking the man's head, Naghoy grabbed $1200 cash from the car's glovebox in front of the boys.

Naghoy and his associates set up ambushmeetings with victims in Hampton Park, Dandenong, Sunshine West and Melbourne CBD. They either offered iPhones for sale or responded to sellers' posts on Facebook online. Naghoy committed the last three robberies including the Boxing Day assault - while on bail. He was on a community corrections order at the time. After his arrest, Naghoy spent 40 days remanded in adult custody. In February, he pleaded guilty at Dandenong Magistrates' Court and was bailed to a deferred sentence. During the regime over the past seven months, Naghoy was required to live at his parents' home and to undergo Youth Justice supervision. He was ordered to report to police three times a week, enrol in education, not associate with co-offenders and obey a night curfew. On 10 September, defence lawyer Nick Power told Dandenong Magistrates' Court that Naghoy had "certainly engaged well" with Youth Justice,

as well as studying and working a job. Magistrate Jack Vandersteen praised Naghoy's "exceptional" performance since the spate of "serious" offending. "You are somebody described (in a Youth Justice report) as polite, respectful and determined. "You walk away from this process with your head held high." In February, Mr Vandersteen noted the "voluminous" "high-end" offending would have been "horrific" for each victim. He said he had to balance the accused's rehabilitation with protection of the community. "If you engage, if you go back to school, if you stay with your family, don't commit any further offences, then ... you will not return to custody. "However if you commit a further offence and don't comply with bail conditions, it's likely that you will receive a custodial sentence." On 11 September, Naghoy was sentenced to a 12-month community corrections order with conviction.

Drug user’s timely stop By Cam Lucadou-Wells A suspended driver with an array of illicit drugs in his car was intercepted by police after driving the wrong way in a slip lane in Cranbourne, a court has heard. Trevor William Anderson, 30, of Springvale, was spotted driving his Yaris down the oneway slip lane on South Gippsland Highway and Camms Road about 2.24am on 4 May. Police seized about 8 grams of cannabis in separate bags on his person. In the car were a bag of methamphetamine and a bag of amphetamine, police told Dandenong Magistrates' Court on 10 September. He told police there was "no good enough reason" for his offending. "Another stupid decision, no reason." Anderson - who had a lengthy criminal history - was on a County Court community corrections order at the time. The CCO, including a drug treatment program, was Anderson's best opportunity to overcome his long-standing drug issues, a defence lawyer told the court. The police intercept in May was a "blessing in disguise", derailing Anderson's plan to use the seized drugs, the lawyer said. A County Court judge was judicially monitoring Anderson, was aware of his recent offences and didn't want to interfere with the CCO, the court heard. Anderson was responding well to supervision, with still a number of programs to be put in place, according to a judicial monitoring report in July. Magistrate Julie O'Donnell said she'd "frankly stopped counting" while reading his long criminal history. Anderson was sentenced to perform 150 hours of unpaid work as part of a concurrent 18-month community corrections order.

Second time lucky winner Lotto lighting has struck twice for a semiretired Narre Warren South man after he won division one in TattsLotto for the second time in twenty years. The Melbourne man held the only division one winning entry across Australia in TattsLotto draw 3875, drawn on 8 September. He takes home a division one prize of $4,169,740.14. The thrilled winner revealed he had won division one as part of a syndicate nearly twenty years ago and planned to share his latest windfall with his family. The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased his winning 18-game Quick-

Pick entry The Pines Lotto and Confectionery, Shop 03A, The Pines Shopping Centre, 181 Reynolds Road, Doncaster East. Speaking to a Tatts official to claim his prize, the happy winner recounted how he discovered he was once again a division one winner. "That amount isn't bad hey?" the man said. "I was at home and my wife checked my ticket on Sunday. She said to me 'I think you've won Lotto'. I said to her 'Oh right-o, sure thing love' not believing her. "It's actually the second time we we've won division one. The last time was probably about

20 years ago and we won as part of a syndicate, so we got a good amount but obviously not the amount we got this time! "We must be the lucky ones!" When asked how he planned to spend this TattsLotto windfall the winner revealed it would go towards helping those at the top of his Lotto List - his beloved family. "I'll probably set up a bit for the children and the grandkids," he said. "I'm sort of semi-retired, but I haven't really thought about it. We'll find some good use for it." When asked if a full retirement was on the cards after the windfall, the happy winner re-

vealed he couldn't fathom giving up his job. "I'll stay working until I die - I love my job!" he said.. The Pines Lotto & Confectionery team member Gail Arthur said she was thrilled the outlet has sold another division one winning entry. "It is always exciting when your outlet sells a division one winning entry," She said. "When a customer wins it feels like they have passed the luck on and it feels like you have won yourself. "We are so excited for our customer and wish them all the best."

City of Casey Cr Rex Flannery with scout leaders (back)Sofia Lawrence and Lyn Fairweather and front, Narre Warren North scout Brodie Sherriff and Narre Warren scout Bridget Shields.

Local scouts win awards By Jessica Anstice City of Casey Cr Rex Flannery, from the ringfield Ward, had the pleasure of witnessing Narre Warren North scout Brodie Sherriff and Narre Warren scout Bridget Shields receive the Joey Scout Promise Challenge Award on Thursday night, 30 August. The Joey Scout promise Challenge Award is the highest award and to receive the badge, Brodie and Bridget had to complete and earn four other badges. The four badges include the Caring and Sharing Badge, the Buddy Scheme Badge, the Environmental Challenge Badge and the Adventure Challenge Badge. The aim of the challenge is to gain a greater understanding of the scouts promise and law, and to learn about its founder Lord Baden Powell (BP) and the history of scouting. "We see children on computers and playing games and here we have Brodie and Bridget learning about being good citizens," Mr Flannery said. If you have a child who would like to be involved in cubs or scouts contact your closest scout troupe.

The caller then directs the victim to stay on the phone and attend their local bank and

withdraw a significant amount of money. The victim is then directed to attend a specific ATM and deposit the cash.

Investigators have been told a 17 year old girl was on board the 893 bus from Cranbourne to Dandenong about 6pm on Tuesday 28 August. She exited the bus at Waverley Park Drive, Cranbourne North where a man had been waiting at the stop. He started following the victim before grabbing her and kissing her. The victim fought back and the man verbally abused her before producing a knife and punching her. She sustained minor scratches and the man fled. About 2.30pm the following day, a 17 year old girl was waiting with friends at a bus stop on the Princes Highway near Harmer Road, Hallam waiting for the 2.38pm bus.

A door opens to free study For Halle Taylor of Hastings, the Victorian Government's Free TAFE for Priority Courses initiative offers the chance for her to study what she's been hoping for. Free TAFE ensures eligible students like Ms Taylor from across Melbourne's southeast region will be able to access free training at Chisholm in a range of courses that lead to jobs most in demand from Victorian employers. Through free TAFE, the Victorian Government will cover tuition fees for 20 priority TAFE courses and 18 pre-apprenticeship courses from 1 January 2019 for eligible students. Ms Taylor has completed a Certificate III in Pathology and is considering a Certificate IV in Mental Health. Until now, Ms Taylor and her family have found it challenging to meet the costs of vocational study, which can make it difficult for many to gain the skills they need to establish a career. "I am passionate about my career," Ms Taylor said. "Not having to pay for tuition fees would be really beneficial because instead of stressing and worrying about paying fees I can worry about my school work and doing the best I possibly can." Free TAFE removes the financial barrier for students in the south-east who want to undertake quality, accredited TAFE training that gives them the skills they need to secure real jobs

building the state and caring for the community. Victoria's unprecedented building boom of road and rail projects, new schools and hospitals, as well as increased support for Victorians living with disability and historic action to curb family violence has created a massive demand for skilled workers. More than ever, the skills required for these high-demand jobs are learned at TAFE. "Chisholm is proud to offer these free priority courses and play our part in making sure all Victorians can get the training they need for a good job, and help deliver the skills mix needed by industry," Chisholm CEO Rick Ede said. Chisholm is now taking enquiries for Free TAFE courses that begin in 2019. Chisholm is offering most of the pre-apprenticeship and non-apprenticeship courses on the Free TAFE list, including Certificate II in Plumbing, Certificate III in Community Services, Certificate IV in Cyber Security and Diploma of Justice. For the full list of Free TAFE courses on offer at Chisholm or for more information, visit It is important to note that eligibility criteria applies and other fees and charges, such as student services fees or materials fees, may also apply. Students can check their eligibility by calling Chisholm on 1300 244 746.

For Halle Taylor of Hastings, the Victorian Government's Free TAFE for Priority Courses initiative offers the chance for her to study what she's been dreaming of.

Superhero call out Clyde Primary School's last day of this term is Friday 21 September and on this last day the school is encouraging students to dress up as their favourite super hero for a gold coin donation in aide of the Cody's Paws For His Cause fundraiser. Cody's Paws For His Cause is a fundraiser to help raise money for a seizure alert dog for Cody Wallace. Cody has had an extensive medical history, beginning his journey with the Royal Children's Hospital before he was two years old, following a diagnosis of a choroid plexus papilloma (brain tumour) and hydrocephalous meaning fluid on the brain. Since then Cody has had nine brain surgeries. Early in 2017, Cody was diagnosed with hypothalamus dysfunction that inhibits his body's ability to produce cortisol. Cortisol is the hormone responsible for the flight or fight response for the body, so if Cody is sick, loses consciousness, or breaks a bone, his body starts to shut down rather than fight to stay alive. Since 2010, Cody has been battling epilepsy. Cody's brain is in a state of constant seizure activity that has been resistant to all medications and this has had a detrimental impact on his memory, cognition, ability to learn and gross and finer motor functions. He has suffered countless convulsive seizures that will not stop on their own, without medical intervention. This assistance dog will never leave Cody's side. As a constant and caring companion, the dog will be able to raise an alert when Cody has a seizure and stay with him during times of recovery. A seizure alert dog will save Cody's life. Cody is a fighter, he never gives up and is always ready to face a brand new day giving life

Clyde Primary School is hosting a dress up fundraising day for Cody Wallace. all that he has got. "At Clyde Primary, we think possessing super hero qualities like Cody has is super cool," school council member Courtney Goodman said. "We know that inside of each of us we also

have our own set of super hero qualities and so we are using our dress up day not only to show Cody how proud we are of him but also to celebrate all of the amazing things that make us special too."

Become a park ranger Protecting Phillip Island’s unique wildlife and managing the natural environment are all in a day’s work for a Nature Parks Ranger, and a new mobile game due to be released on Saturday 22 September gives kids the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and take on the role of a Ranger on Victoria’s wildlife island. The Phillip Island Park Ranger game brings conservation activities to life and puts the gamer in charge of managing the island’s natural habitat and protecting wildlife species such as Australian fur seals, Little penguins, Hooded plovers, shearwaters and more through a series of five challenging mini-games. “This game includes the kinds of tasks our rangers and researchers carry out every day, and will give kids a great insight into the role these dedicated people play in conserving the environment for our incredible wildlife,” said Roland Pick from Phillip Island Nature Parks. The game features a control centre from where rangers can monitor their tasks and move seamlessly from removing weeds in the shearwater habitat on Cape Woolamai to repairing the electronic circuitry on the penguin weighbridge at the Penguin Parade. “Each successfully completed task earns experience points, and kids earn bonus points for tasks completed while playing on Phillip Island. Rangers can upgrade their control centre, improve their Ranger rating and ultimately be rewarded with a free child’s 4 Parks Pass to visit the Penguin Parade, Antarctic Journey, Koala Reserve and Churchill Island once they have completed all the levels,” Roland said. “Phillip Island Park Ranger is free to download, contains no ads and has no in-app purchases, and parents can be assured that this game is both completely safe."

Learn about backyard microbats Go batty these school holidays with a special afternoon focused on microbats at the Cranbourne Royal Botanic Gardens. Dr Casey Visintin is an environmental conservation researcher who has studied microbats for a number of years and will reveal much about these amazing animals in a special presentation on Sunday 23 September. Microbats are among the most common animals in suburban backyards and in bushland. They come out at night to feed on insects. Children are much more likely to hear their high-pitched squeaks at night than adults. The tiny creatures use echo-location (sonar) to navigate and hunt and consume huge numbers of insects each night, including mosquitoes and other pest insects. Through the day they roost in tree hollows or crevices in tree bark. Dr Visintin will talk about how important microbats are and there will be an opportunity to see one or two living microbats up close. This lecture is in school holidays so children are especially welcome to bring along parents and grandparents. The talk will be held on Sunday 23 September between 2 – 3:30 pm at the Australian Garden Auditorium, Cranbourne Gardens. Bookings can be made via the Spring 2018 Naturelink Booking Form at: Cost is $20 for members, $25 for non-members and $10 for students, including refreshments. Proceeds from the event will go towards special projects undertaken by the gardens management. For further information contact 8774 2483.

A match made in heaven By Nick Creely SOUTH EAST FOOTBALL NETBALL LEAGUE PREVIEW - GRAND FINAL BERWICK (2nd) v NARRE WARREN (1st) Saturday from 2.30pm at Edwin Flack Reserve THE RECENT HISTORY: Semi Final, 2018: Berwick 11.13 (79) defeated Narre Warren 9.13 (67) Round 16, 2018: Berwick 8.19 (67) defeated Narre Warren 4.6 (30) Round 7, 2018: Narre Warren 13.10 (88) defeated Berwick 10.19 (79) Round 2, 2018: Narre Warren 8.11 (59) defeated Berwick 5.10 (40) Berwick players to watch: Bryce Rutherford, Madi Andrews, Harry Money, Travis Tuck Narre Warren players to watch: Brad Scalzo, Col McNamara, Trent Shinners, Michael Collins THE TIPSTERS: SEFNL chairman Ryan Ford: “It will be a Grand Final for the ages. The last ever SEFNL contest between two clubs that are both very deserving of their place in history here. Narre Warren was impressive last week after Cranbourne threw everything at them and will go in to this week with the confidence they can deliver against the reigning premiers. Berwick are a high quality and very dynamic team and will no doubt feel like they have Narre’s measure after two recent wins. The class of both sides will ensure an enthralling contest. Berwick by five points.” Officer president Nick McLennan: “Huge clash between the best two sides in the competition this year. I expect this to be a high scoring contest with multiple lead changes throughout the day. Both sides have exciting mobile forward lines with multiple contributors in front of goal, however delivery into the forward line is key to this contest and whichever side can win the battle in the centre will come out in front. Berwick have managed to string together some great performances in the back half of the year and the expected inclusion of Andrews joining Tuck, Magner and co will prove the difference. Berwick by nine points.” It’s a match made in heaven - a full-strength Berwick defending its premiership crown against the competition benchmark of the season, Narre Warren. Names such as Tuck, Andrews, Rutherford, Magner, Smith and Riseley will clash with Collins, Scalzo, Quirk, Scanlon and McNamara. What more could a grand final ask for? It will be tough, relentless football. Taking away the fact that these two powerhouses clashed in the grand final last season, this Saturday looms as an epic that will have many sharp turns of momentum. As it stands, the evenness of both teams should have an expected monster crowd in anticipation of what’s to come. Can Berwick once again inflict the Magpies with a grand final loss and lift the premiership cup for the second year in a row? Or does Matt Shinners’ side - with all of its experience and fearless youth - turn the tables and end the season just like they began? By 5pm on Saturday, these questions will be answered, and one team will go down as the final premiership team of the SEFNL. Back in April, Berwick coach Stewart Kemperman spoke about his side not being known as a “one-off”, and wanted to write yet another chapter, and not just be satisfied with the one premiership. “Our club’s been around for 134 years, and we’ve only gone back to back once - if the team gets it right this years and the coming years, this Berwick side could be known as the best the club’s ever seen,” he said. This time around, the Wickers didn’t achieve the perfect home and away season. But something clicked as the season wore on. Gradually, the Wickers found their mojo they defended with the stinginess of a champion team, and ran in waves, cutting the opposition to shreds when the moment to attack arrived. Winning their two finals, the Wickers enjoyed a much needed week off, and more

Great rivals and champion teams Berwick and Narre Warren will do battle for more silverware on Saturday. 184742 portantly, had Narre Warren scratching their heads to figure out just how to bring down this champion team. The break is something Kemperman - from his experiences last year - is not taking for granted. “The season does come with a toll - it’s (the week off) allowed us to prepare each individual,” he said. “We should have a few boys available.” The big stage - something the Wickers have relished in, is what Kemperman is craving, and he said the group understands what lies ahead. “From when we knew we’d be in the grand final, as a club we’ve certainly been excited,” he said. “It’s hard to block out (the expectation), but we’ll just embrace it - it’s an exciting week.” Kemperman expects superstar midfielder and skipper Madi Andrews to slot straight back in to take on a brilliant Narre Warren team, who he has viewed as the “benchmark” all season. “They are a very, very good side,” he said. “We’re under absolutely no illusions about what they can do. “They’ve been the form side of the year, so we know we have to be right on our game.” For Narre Warren coach Matt Shinners - a two-time premiership coach for the club in 2008 and 2010 - he said that his mix of youth and experience can carry his team to the pinnacle once more. “I’ve got such a young group, despite the experience of players like (Brad) Scalzo, (Michael) Collins, (Nick) Scanlon, (Trent) Shinners and (Dylan) Quirk,” he said. “But we’ve got so many youngsters running around for us, and they’ve got to have role models. “It not only sets us up for this year, but it sets us up for an exciting future.” Conquering the Wickers will be no easy task, but Shinners believes if they can get it in to their electric forward line quick enough, a winning score can be achieved. They have been the most potent attacking side in the competition all year, and there’s no

Brad Scalzo's Magpies and James Magner's Wickers will go head-to-head in the last ever SEFNL grand final. 184742 reason why they can’t pile on the goals again. “They’re such a good side, so even across the ground,” he said. “The game will be won in the middle, and if we can get some ball through there and get it forward, we can do some damage - we’ve got a very good forward line. “But we need to win that area, and make good decisions under pressure.” Shinners said that the preliminary final against Cranbourne was a great chance to re-

discover their attacking flair, and was pleased with the response of his group after being challenged for three quarters against the Eagles. “We were a lot better against Cranbourne, and we showed some great character after being just six points up with a quarter to play,” he said. “We played a really good last 30 minutes, and managed to get the game on our terms.” It will be the last ever SEFNL grand final, and it’s only fitting that we see these great powerhouses go out with a bang.

Berwick champion Madi Andrews took out the Norm Walker Medal. 17981

Premierships and league best and fairest medals seem to go hand in hand for Berwick star Madi Andrews. The Wickers skipper will be hoping he can make it three from three after claiming the Norm Walker Medal at the South East Football Netball League presentation evening on Monday evening at the Cranbourne racecourse. Andrews - who is certain to return for the grand final on Saturday against Narre Warren after being injured the last month - took out the SEFNL’s top honour for the third term, just edging out Magpies legend Michael Collins by just a single vote. Ironically, Andrews won the medal in 2015 and the Wickers went on to claim a premiership, and then last year, the champ achieved the very same feat. Andrews played 15 home and away matches this season, and despite a slow start to the year, managed to claim the maximum votes on four occasions, and finished on 20 votes. His gut-running and incredible ability to win the football was on show for all to see in 2018, and as he slowly warmed into the season, Andrews once again proved his standing as the best player in the competition. His best on ground performances came in Round 4, 10, 13 and 14, and also polled votes in Round 1, 2, 8, 9 and 11. Berwick president Glenn Gambetta accepted the award on his superstar’s behalf, with Andrews unable to attend the awards. Andrews told the News on Tuesday that he was humbled to win the award for the third time. “I was a bit shocked - I thought there was probably a few of my mates at Berwick that had better years, but it’s a great honour,” he said. “It was a bit of a disrupted year, I popped my shoulder out a few times, but I’m proud of the season.” While Andrews acknowledges the incredible achievement of winning a third Norm Walker Medal, winning a premiership on Saturday with his mates is the only thing that matters. “I’m definitely proud of it (winning the medal) - but for me, I only play footy for three reasons, to play footy with my mates, have fun and to win premierships,” he said. “A few things went wrong this year, but as a group, we’re relentless, and its how we have got through this year.” Andrews also confirmed that he will take his place in the grand final after missing almost a month with injury. He said he can’t wait to get out there and lead his team. “I probably could have played a bit earlier, but there was a risk of re-doing the injury,” he said. “I’ve been working extremely hard in rehab, and I’m ready to go.” Another star of the competition to be rec-

SEFNL 2018 MVP, Mitch Cotter (Doveton). ognised for his achievements was Cranbourne legend Marc Holt, with the league celebrating his years of service and his 1000th goal as an Eagle, which was crossed in 2018. With Holt also unable to attend the presentation evening, Cranbourne football director Manny Vella spoke about the impact the lionhearted spearhead has had on the competition, praising his loyalty, consistency and impact on community football in the region. Other major football awards on the night went to Doveton youngster Mitch Cotter, who capped his team of the year selection with the MVP award, while Hayden McLardy and Nick Russo shared the reserves best and fairest award and Max Sheppard - the under 19 leading goal kicker - took out the top gong in the Under 19s. In the A Grade netball league best and fairest, there was a three way tie, with Cranbourne star Tara Cecil, Beaconsfield’s Danielle Cameron and Tooradin-Dalmore’s Jess Cox sharing the award on 16 votes. Cecil - who now has four medals next to her name - told the crowd she wasn’t expecting to once again be crowned the winner. “I went away to Europe for four weeks, so I didn’t really expect to win it,” she said. But she wanted to thank her club for their support over a number of years. “It’s a lot of the girls I’ve played with over the years, a lot of them are the same girls,” she said. “They bring me up each game - I’d like to thank everyone from the Cranbourne Football and Netball Club, everything they do is amazing, and my amazing team.” Cameron was also awarded for an unbelievably consistent season for the Eagles, and deservingly shared the medal, while Cox - who was unable to attend on the night - was a colossal for the reigning A Grade premiers, and will be a key player in the grand final on Saturday.


Casey prepared for prelim By Hayley Wildes Having earned a week off after demolishing Geelong by 91 points in the qualifying final, the Casey Demons return to action this Saturday as they look to book their place in the VFL grand final. Casey's opponent Essendon has come from the clouds, roaring into the preliminary final having beaten Collingwood and minor premiers Richmond in its two finals games after finishing eighth on the ladder. "They've got incredible momentum and they've had a really good run coming into this weekend," Casey captain Jack Hutchins said. "We're all really excited about the weekend and hopefully we've created something where it doesn't really matter who we play, our brand can hold up when it needs to." The Demons had a minor hiccup in the final two home and away season games, but rediscovered their identity against Geelong by playing the Casey brand of football - a tough and uncompromising thirst for the contest. "We pride ourselves on the contested ball, being aggressive at the contest and outnumbering at the contest," he said. "To me, that's certainly what transpired [against Geelong] and it was one of those games when everything just clicked and every player played their role." Casey and Essendon have met once this season and the Round 13 clash was an enthralling battle. In windy conditions at Craigieburn, the Demons claimed a hard-fought eight-point win. In his first season at Casey, coach Jade Rawlings has turned his team into a defensiveminded and ruthless outfit. Their willingness to firstly compete at every contest and then spread with width and use the ball with composure makes them a tough team to crack. Rawlings' season was recognised at Monday night's VFL Best and Fairest when he was awarded 2018 VFL Coach of the Year. Having led his team to a 14-4 record, finishing the home and away season in second position, it was some very well-deserved recognition of a coach who has brought his team together. "Full credit to Twiggy (Jade Rawlings) - he's had a great year and he's a fantastic coach to play under," he said. "The same with the two boys who got in the VFL Team of the Year - Corey Wagner and Jay Lockhart - they've had tremendous seasons

Teams for Saturday's game are yet to be named, but Casey will most likely boast the likes of Melbourne AFL-listed players Tom Bugg, Jeff Garlett, Jay Kennedy-Harris, Jayden Hunt, Declan Keilty, Harrison Petty, Tim Smith and of course Cam Pedersen - who finished equal fifth in the 2018 J.J Liston Trophy at Monday night's best and fairest.

While there is plenty of skill and experience among that group, the VFL-listed players are just as important and have consistently stood up for Casey. Corey Wagner, Jay Lockhart, James Munro, Josh Wagner and the skipper have been vital to the Demons' success. Hutchins has been a part of some tough finals losses with Casey over recent years, highlighted by the 2016 grand final loss to Footscray, but he believes the resilience of the 2018 Casey Demons makes them a different side to previous years.

"In times gone by, there has been games when it's only taken 10 or 15 minutes when sides have got a run on and we haven't been able to peg it back," he said. "The group we have this year is really resilient in terms of in any situation, we've been able to work through it and I think that's showed in different games throughout the year." Casey faces Essendon on Saturday at North Port Oval from 2.10pm.

Falcons soar into grand final as footy hits fever pitch By Hayley Wildes SOUTHERN FOOTBALL LEAGUE DIVISION 2 - PRELIMINARY FINAL Keysborough almost pulled off one of the great comebacks against Highett in their preliminary final on Saturday but fell agonisingly short. The Burras will be kicking themselves about their slow start that saw them trail by 39 points at the first break. Highett came to play and Keysborough was left reeling, but the second quarter was the start of a spirited Burras fightback. As Cory Hargreaves (three goals), Riet Pal and Michael Downie got heavily involved, Keysborough fought tooth and nail for every ball, reducing the margin to 20 points with a quarter to play. In a back and forth final quarter, it was on for young and old and when Chris Bryan kicked his third goal of the quarter - and sixth for the match - the Burras trailed by just four points with eight minutes to play. The final few minutes of the game were frantic as Keysborough searched for the match-winning goal, but a late Ed Turner major gave Highett some breathing room and they held on for a 14.15 (99) to 14.4 (88) win. Highett moves onto the grand final and will face the Doveton Eagles on Saturday afternoon at Jack Barker Oval. The Doveton Eagles will enter the grand final as clear favourites, having soundly beaten Highett in their semi final clash two weeks ago, 18.20 (128) to 10.9 (69).

Pearcedale Baxter won the under-15 girls White Division grand final of the Mornington Peninsula Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS Junior Football League on Sunday. 185075 in straight sets. After a tight and tough first half, Endeavour Hills produced an eight-goal to three second half to book their place in the grand final. Byron Hoe and Andrew Vella were sublime for the Falcons, while Jack Besley and Jackson Philpin were best in what was a disappointing end to a promising season for the Redbacks. Springvale Districts and Endeavour Hills

will face off in the grand final on Sunday afternoon at Power Reserve. Springvale Districts claimed two wins from three meetings this season. In Round 16, the Dees claimed a comprehensive win over the Falcons, 13.9 (87) to 3.7 (25). DIVISION 4 - GRAND FINAL Lyndhurst was unable to overcome a goalless opening term in its grand final match-up against

Cerberus on Saturday at Keysborough Reserve. League-leading goal kicker Hamish Browning did all he could, but the Lightning couldn't get their offence going, falling to Cerberus 12.14 (86) to 8.6 (54). Despite having kicked just four goals in three quarters, the Lightning was still in with a sniff, trailing by 23 points with a quarter to play. Lyndhurst kicked three of the first four goals in the final quarter to trim the deficit to 11 points with 15 minutes remaining, but it wasn't to be as Cerberus responded with three of the final four goals. Browning booted six majors in a dynamic display, while Jesse Walia and Anthony Besim also produced fine performances. For the premiers, Samuel Corcoran and Jimmy Miller (three goals each) played pivotal roles in helping their team claim the flag.
