Petition calls for playground

Member for La Trobe Jason Wood met with residents from Arden Estate in Pakenham to discuss their petition for a park on Saturday.

By Jessica Anstice La Trobe MP Jason Wood has joined the call to build a park in Arden Estate in Pakenham. More than 100 people have signed a petition calling for a park after an article was published in the Pakenham Officer Star News last week. Members of Arden Estate Neighbours Group united on Saturday with the request to build a park with play equipment in the estate. Mr Wood attended the meet up and supported the demand. “There are will be around 550 houses in the estate once completed,” Mr Wood said. “It is important to high-

light that there is no park in the estate built by council or the estate developer and there is no plan to build one in future.” Many petition supporters evoked their reasoning for need of a park on the petition website. “Our estate is in desperate need of a park and open space for children to play in,” one woman commented. “Council have let us down and so have the developers. “We bought our land based on being told that there were lots of parks already planned and now the heritage grass is overgrown and disgusting to look at.” To sign the petition visit, http://chng.it/P4x24PJp59

March: off track March was a challenging month across the Public Transport Victoria (PTV) network, with multiple incidents causing delays to trains in Melbourne and regional Victoria, including disruption on the Cranbourne, Pakenham and Frankston lines. The performance results for March showed Metro delivered 88 percent of services ontime, Yarra Trams delivered 78 percent of services on-time, and V/Line delivered 84 percent of services on-time. “There were a number of issues last month

that significantly impacted the performance across the network - some of these were out of the operators’ control, some in their control,” PTV acting CEO Alan Fedda said. “That’s why this week we’re getting on with the Autumn construction blitz to build the Metro Tunnel, remove level crossings and upgrade many parts of the network to continue to improve its resilience and reliability.” On the regional train network V/Line saw 95.2 percent of services delivered. More trains ran on time on the Gippsland

line than last month. A number of external incidents impacted the regional services, including the Bunyip bushfires. “There’s a lot of work going on across the regional network to upgrade train lines across the state,” said Mr Fedda. Due to each operator missing performance targets in March, passengers can claim compensation. Compensation can be claimed by all hold-

ers of Myki passes that are valid for 28 days or more and have been used on train or tram services for at least 10 days of that month. Compensation for March will equate to the value of one daily fare or complimentary day return V/Line ticket being uploaded onto the Myki. For details on how to claim, and for detailed performance results, visit the PTV website at www.ptv.vic.gov.au/tickets/refunds-compensation-and-replacement-tickets/compensation

Friends’ tributes for Jeni By Jessica Anstice Noted Cardinia Shire community worker Jeni Mathieson lost a long battle with cancer on Wednesday 10 April. Jeni’s family and friends reflected on her time selflessly serving the community through charity organisation 4Cs in Pakenham. The well-known woman was recognised as the inaugural Pakenham-Berwick Gazette Person of the Year for 2011 and Cardinia Shire Citizen of the Year in 2012. Jack and Margaret Mitchell knew Jeni for some 12 years, working closely with her through 4Cs. Mr Mitchell described Jeni as a “totally selfless community person”. “Jeni was a terrific provider for the community,” he said. “She did extraordinary things and she was a very down-to-earth Christian woman. “In recent times with her illness, her son Andy became her carer and he did a fine job.” Jeni had the ability to attract people from all walks of life and always offered a kind word and a helping hand. “She did wonderful things and worked enormous hours for what she wasn’t compensated for. She was never off duty,“ Mr Mitchell said. “She devoted her time and energy to the development of the 4Cs and the Cardinia shire has a lot to thank Jeni for. “My wife and I think the absolute world of her and we’re sorry that she’s lost that battle.” One of Jeni’s co-workers and close friends described Jeni as an “amazing woman” that “just helped everybody”. “She was such a well-organised person and she was the one that got the 4Cs up and running,” Jeni’s friend of 14 years said. “From a personal perspective, she was a lot

She would not finish at 5pm each night. She’d be working well into the night.” Another of Jeni’s co-workers and friends said she was impressed by Jeni’s “extremely strong faith”. “She had an amazing connection to God and she would speak to him as though he was standing beside her. That really had a big impact on me,” the friend said. “She was also quite open about it. That’s what she left with me. “She had a great sense of giving too. Whenever she saw something that needed to be done she just hopped in and did it.” A funeral will be held for Jeni on Thursday 18 April from 11am at the Turning Point Church, 1785 South Gippsland Highway, Cranbourne.

Sadly, Pakenham woman Jeni Mathieson lost her battle with cancer last week. Her family and friends have reflected on her time with the 4Cs charity.

IN BRIEF

‘Send me an angel’ By Cam Lucadou-Wells Barbara considers herself a strong woman, someone who’s worked in business and office management for years. Yet when she was admitted as a compulsory patient into a hospital psychiatric ward, she was left isolated, terrified and bewildered. The South East single mum in her 40s says medical staff didn’t explain to her why this happened, what her rights were nor did they notify her children of her admission. At times she sat in the ward for four days before she was seen by a doctor, she said. “Patients were saying to me: don’t buck up, don’t ask questions or they’ll keep you in here longer or give you medication.” She felt lost, without support, but for the help of an advocate working for Independent Mental Health Advocacy (IMHA). In the role, an advocate visits hospitals and is a voice of support for patients. Barbara described his intervention as like an “angel”. Unfortunately it seems there are not enough of these angels in our mental health system. According to a recent independent review, there needs to be twice as many IMHA advocates to reach every compulsory patient. The horrors started for Barbara when, stalked and threatened by a violent ex-partner, she had “a bit of a breakdown”. She sought help at Casey Hospital in Janu-

ary where she had an epileptic seizure. She was told paramedics were transferring her to The Alfred hospital for a CAT scan. Then to her bewilderment, she was admitted as a compulsory patient into a psychiatric ward. “I don’t know if there was some sort of mistake Weeks later, she visited Narre Warren police station to apply for an intervention order. Upon checking her details, police officers grabbed her, patted her down in the car park and carted her back to Casey Hospital. There, medical staff started to shackle her to a bed and demanded she swallow psychiatric medication. She was told she had been avoiding her medication since released in the community. “’I’m not on any medication,’ I said. “It’s a very weird situation when your whole person and whole mind is being judged incorrectly. “I would rather be in a police cell.” A recent RMIT University review released this month found the IMHA service was doing a sterling job, but was under-resourced. The review is calling for a funding boost to expand the service to an opt-out model for all involuntary mental health patients. IMHA manager Helen Makregiorgos said the service was a “safeguard”.

“You can be held in a locked ward and forced to receive medications, as well as other restrictions like limiting your communication with the world outside. “It’s a daunting prospect to face by yourself. “We support people to learn about their rights and have as much of a say as possible, so they don’t have to undergo unnecessary or unwanted treatment.” Dr Chris Maylea, who led the RMIT review, said several inpatients in Dandenong told how frightening the system could be, and how few the supports. “We identified that services often breached the Mental Health Act and that IMHA helps services to comply with the Act.” The IMHA was introduced by the State Government in 2015 at an annual cost of $2.3 million. Mental Health Minister Martin Foley said the Royal Commission into mental health would give answers to a system that needs repairing. “In the meantime, we will continue to support the Independent Mental Health Advocacy to make sure the views and voices of mental health patients are heard.” Meanwhile, Barbara is lodging a complaint with the Mental Health Complaints Commissioner. She is also submitting to the Royal Commission.

Holiday pain at the petrol bowsers By Brendan Rees With Easter just around the corner, Casey motorists are set to face high petrol prices as they head off on road trips for the long weekend. The average unleaded price in Melbourne over the past week was up 14.8 cents to $153.8c a litre, according to CommSec senior economist Ryan Felsman. "Unleaded petrol prices are set to remain around $1.50 a litre in the near term," he said. Mr Felsman said a jump in international crude oil, continued Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries - Russian production cuts and supply disruptions in Venezuela, Libya and Sudan, had pushed up prices by 40 per cent this year. "The school holidays are underway with the Easter-Anzac Day block of public holidays encouraging most Aussies to take some extended time off," he said. "Those who have hit the road would've noticed that petrol prices have lifted." Feeling the pinch at the bowser has been Berwick furniture removal truck driver Mark Johnson who uses about 600 to 700 litres of premium diesel fuel a week. "Of my turnover fuel would be around about 24 to 27 per cent," he said. Mr Johnson said he would pay as much as $640 to fill his 400-litre tank. "Because I'm using it predominately for highway and removal work I can claim for the diesel excise but it

Police are appealing to the public with any information about the pictured campervan.

Campervan stolen Police are appealing for help following the theft of a campervan in Berwick on Saturday 23 March. Police say the vehicle was locked but the keys were located and used to allegedly steal the vehicle. The vehicle has a manual transmission and solar panels on the roof with a beige interior. Police were only supplied an image showing only the front of the vehicle. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online at www.crimestoppersvic.gov. auand quote the incident number 190108989.

Cars taken in raid Casey Crime Investigation detectives are investigating a burglary at an automotive workshop in Cranbourne West on Sunday 7 April. Investigators have been told at least three men broke into the Universal Way premises about 6am and allegedly stole two vehicles, including a silver Ford Falcon sedan with registration 1OV8JZ, which is yet to be located. The second vehicle was a black Nissan Skyline, which was recovered on Monday 8 April. Police say no arrests have been made at this stage and are investigating. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppersvic. com.au

Thirsty thieves take off with top-shelf liquor Police are appealing for help following the theft of four bottles of liquor from a store in Fountain Gate, Narre Warren on Saturday 13 April. Narre Warren police say the thieves entered First choice Liquor before selecting a litre bottle of Jim Beam and three one-litre bottles of Johnny Walker and leaving the store without paying. Police have released images of people believed to be aged in their twenties and of African appearance who may be able to assist their enquiries. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report online at www.crimestoppersvic.gov. auand quote the incident number 190133991.

Truck driver Mark Johnson with his son Mitchell who says fuel prices are ridiculous. would probably be 16 cents a litre, not much. "On road costs, daily road costs, fuel and maintenance is ridiculous," he said. According to Petrolspy.com on Monday 15 April BP Cranbourne South on FrankstonCranbourne Road and 7-Eleven in Cranbourne East on Ballarto Road had unleaded fuel priced at $152.9c a litre, while Woolworths Caltex Berwick on Clyde Road was $153.3c a litre, and Coles Express Narre Warren on Princes Highway, a $156.9c a litre.

RACV manager of vehicle engineering Michael Case advised motorists to top up rather than fill up where possible. "The price cycle is a function of competition, driven by competing fuel stations attempting to undercut each other in order to sell more petrol," he said. "When this discounting reaches an unsustainable level where profit margins are very low or even running at a loss, the fuel price gets driven back up again by some of the retailers."

Police wish to speak with these people.

Mother’s break-in shock By Brendan Rees A Berwick mother says she is feeling "massively shaken" after finding the contents of her car had been rummaged through. "There's a whole heap of things missing from my glove box," Jess-Louise Douglas said. She explained her partner had found her car door open as he was about to leave for work about 6.20am on Friday 12 April. "He told me straight away and I was up and out. I just don't know how I didn't hear it." She said her car, a 1998 Mitsubishi Lancer sedan was parked on the nature strip outside her home in Clendon Street. "There's a few things missing from the car but I've been told I'm not allowed to touch it until the police come over. "It was locked. My father actually reckons they may have tried to get my car started to try and steal it," she said. She was relieved to find her pram worth about $800 and baby seat still present."Both of them would've woken me. If you try and take a baby seat out you make so much noise." A drink cooler was taken, and possibly some coins, as well as a new box of brake pads that had been opened. "I know I had bank details, as stupid as it was on me in my glove box. I don't know if they've gone or not. "It's a new estate in Berwick so I didn't expect this." She said adding to her heart ache was that fact she had been up the "whole night stressing" about her brother who had a kidney transplant the day before. "Bloody annoying...you go to work and you earn it." Narre Warren Police are investigating. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www. crimestoppersvic.com.au.

Fire relief fund distributes $170,000 to the victims By Jessica Anstice Victorians have dug deep and donated funds to people affected by the Bunyip State Park bushfires. Casey Cardina Foundation (CCF) has worked tirelessly alongside Gippsland Emergency Relief Fund (GERF) fund to raise and distribute more than $170,000 to bushfire victims. Various organisations contributed funding, including Cardinia Shire Council, City of Casey, City of Greater Dandenong, Lakeside Residents Group and the general public. “The Gippsland Emergency Relief fund properly assessed each property in the fire affected areas and determined the amount of funding they would receive based on the impact,” CCF chair Paul Thomas said. “Overall, it’s been an amazing community effort.” Emergency financial support was provided to 29 families in Cardinia who lost homes or property in the Bunyip and Tonimbuk fires. “GERF is working closely with Cardinia

Council to help local residents who have had their primary place of residence damaged by the recent bushfires, in their recovery process,” GERF president John Mitchell said. “We know that recovery for families and businesses in a long and demanding process. “The funding support provided by GERF is to provide some financial assistance to families/individuals whilst insurance and government claims are being processed.” Melbourne Food and Wine Festival was a generous supporter of this year’s GERD appeal by raising funds at several events. “While we’ve already provided support to many local families in need, the funds raised through this year’s appeal haven’t yet reached the payments GERF has made- so we’re encouraging members of the local community to donate where they can.” Donations can be made at any NAB branch across Australia, via cheque or Paypal, with further details available at gerf.org.au All donations made to GERF are tax deductable.

From left, Casey Cardinia Foundation board member Norm Davidson, City of Casey Cr Wayne Smith, CCF chair Paul Thomas, CCF committee member Kate Lempriere, City of Casey Mayor and CCF committee member Amanda Stapledon and City of Casey CEO Glenn Patterson. City of Casey made a substantial donation of $20,000 on Wednesday. “Cardinia is one of our neighbours and we felt compelled to reach out and so that’s what

we’re doing,” City of Casey Mayor and CCF committee member Amanda Stapledon said. “Our aim is to assist the community to get back on their feet again.”

Glenn Patterson remains secret about his salary Casey council's 2019/20 budget will not be transparent to ratepayers and residents. Casey Council CEO Glenn Patterson recently agreed to meet with me at Casey following Casey Council's refusal to allow me to know how much our CEO is being paid even though Glenn Patterson is paid by ratepayers as are all senior managers and staff at Casey, and even though the employment contracts of most Victorian municipal CEOs are transparent to local ratepayers and residents. Mr Patterson was made aware by email of my items of interest for discussion. He informed me that under the legislation he doesn't have to tell me his salary or contract. When asked how then Casey's 2019/20 budget will then be transparent Mr Patterson seemed to just shrug his shoulders with indifference. He did claim, however, that his salary is less than his predecessor Mike Tyler. Well then why does it have to be kept secret Mr Patterson? Mr Patterson did also state that his salary will be revealed in Casey's annual report which will not be available until the end of September this year; well after Casey's 2019/20 budget is released. Annual reports are not necessarily transparent because they may not itemise the salary and financial incentives paid to staff and CEOs. Rather annual reports can disguise pay-

I believe that Casey Council's, and Mr Glenn Patterson's, preference for secrecy, over the CEOs salary and contract, strikes a blow

against transparency and democracy in Casey. John Glazebrook, Endeavour Hills

SOCIALLY SPEAKING On April 16 a story was shared to the Star News Facebook page about the son of an elderly Narre Warren South resident who has declared war with Casey Council over their failure to pick up a hefty bill after a nature strip tree caused damage to her sewer pipeline. Here is how our readers reacted: Suzi Grbesa: The council need to remove the gum trees as well! Their leaves kill lawns and make a mess!!! And the roots lift foundations. It's absolutely ridiculous. You would think after so many years and heaps of complaints that they would do something about this and plant something else instead! Ruth Rickard: This council hasn’t a clue that gum trees belong in the bush not nature strips! Rupinder J Gill: Similar thing happened to the lady next door, the tree roots went through her water supply and water was leaking out. pakenhamnews.starcommunity.com.au

‘Through the roof’ bandits By Brendan Rees A Cranbourne East man has told of his shock after intruders allegedly climbed through his roof and ransacked his home. Adam Messina said he was left devastated when he came home from work on Tuesday 9 April to find his home "turned upside down." According to Mr Messina, the intruders avoided his "massive dog" in the backyard by climbing onto his roof before forcing their way through the manhole. During the raid, he says the bandits stole items of sentimental value including his grandfather's 24 carat gold necklace, rings and watches he had kept from his 21st birthday, as well as jewellery passed down from family generations. "That's the main stuff I'm worried about; other stuff can be replaced," he said. "They went through the whole house, every room, every cupboard, every draw. "(They) flipped up my couch, even took TV remote controls; left the TV hanging on the wall, took a lot of jewellery, lap tops, iPads, Nikon camera with portrait lenses, a lot of power tools." His beloved blue and white Honda motorbike worth about $13,000 was also taken from his garage during the raid. Police spokeswoman Natalie Butler said it's believed two men travelling in a small white hatchback broke into the property about 7.30am. They allegedly stole the motorbike with registration HRC11 which has yet to be located before leaving about 9.10am. According to Mr Messina, CCTV footage from his neighbours captured men in the area walking towards his home between 7.45am and 9am. "They came in through the roof and opened the roller door and the car's been reversed (into the garage) on the footage," Mr Messina said. "They've taken the garage remote with them as well."

Cardiac care vital While there are some risks that can’t be changed - for example increasing age, being male, ethnic background (Indian sub-continent and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) and family history - there are plenty of risk factors that can be mitigated: smoking,high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, being inactive, being overweight, unhealthy diet or depression/isolation. Fortunately for the people of Berwick and surrounding communities, St John of God Berwick Hospital offers a range of cardiac services and specialises in the management of patients who are experiencing symptoms associated with heart failure. Along with a cardiovascular interventional laboratory, which allows cardiologists to look inside a heart and enables them to diagnose and treat heart conditions, the hospital offers cardiac/high dependency care to patients who have experienced a cardiac event such as a heart attack.

The 10-bed high acuity cardiac unit is part of the hospital’s Critical Care Unit which caters to patients who may need to be monitored very closely following major surgery, require the insertion of a stent, pacemaker or internal cardiac defibrillator, or for those who have unexpectedly become very ill. The hospital also provides in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation services which enables it to provide a holistic approach to cardiac care in this region. The hospital has also recently launched a rapid access Chest Pain Clinic which allows quick access to a cardiologist for patients suffering from non-active cardiac symptoms, within 1-2 weeks. A GP referral is required. For emergencies and active chest pain, please call 000. For more information on cardiac care, please contact St John of God Berwick Hospital on 8784 5000.

Heart disease claims the lives of thousands of Australians each year and that’s why the Heart Foundation is focusing on the importance of physical activity in reducing the prevalence and impact of the disease during its annual Heart Week being held from April 28-May 4. According to the Heart Foundation, cardiovascular disease is a major cause of death, killing one person every 12 minutes and accounting for nearly 30 per cent of all deaths in this country. Largely preventable, heart disease affects one in six Australians with more than one million people aged 30-65 at a high risk of having a heart attack or stroke - many of whom may not even know it. Knowing your individual risks is the first step in avoiding a heart attack or stroke and the best way to find out your overall risk is to see your doctor or health practitioner for a heart health check.

The benefits of implants Many Australians suffer tooth loss, mostly due to tooth decay, gum disease or injury. For many years, the only treatment options available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. But today, dental implants are available. Dental implants are made of titanium and are designed to mimic tooth roots. Implants provide an extremely predictable and effective means of tooth replacement. Patients with missing teeth can now undergo replacement of a single tooth or several missing teeth with implant retained crowns and enjoy the function and aesthetics that they had with their natural teeth. There have been vast leaps in the science and technology behind dental implants in the last 20 years. Today, patients can have their missing teeth replaced so that it is almost impossible to tell that they are missing teeth at all. Technological advances range from the planning stages where 3D scanning technology have made it possible to accurately predict where the implant should go and what additional procedures may be required (such as hard and soft tissue grafting) to achieve perfect form, function and aesthetics. Advances in the design of implants as well have made them so much more predictable from a longevity point of view and, more im-

Brigade’s big 75th

Lifestyle Community 114 Rix Road OFFICER Cardinia Cultural Centre Lakeside Boulevard PAKENHAM

By Brendan Rees Narre Warren North fire brigade has achieved a milestone of 75 years serving its community. It was 11 February 1945 when residents banded together to form the brigade with donations exceeding 20 pounds at its first meeting. Members past and presented gathered on Saturday 6 April for a ceremony where captain Mark Dobrich and past captain Ivan Smith cut a celebratory cake to mark the occasion. Commander Arthur Haynes addressed attendees saying a lot had changed but the volunteers’ passion in serving the community had lived on. “In the early 1960s the brigade started looking for a site, as we had equipment in several farms around the district,” he said. “The fire truck needed to be more accessible, also the siren was located on private property.” “Len Sonogon donated half an acre of land to the brigade in 1963. The brigade some years later built the first stage of the fire station with the assistance of a small contribution from CFA. “The major fundraising activity was an annual bonfire night, five dollars all you can eat and drink. “After the first year, the system had to change due to the amount of alcohol being consumed. All the profits were being drunk,” Mr Haynes said. He said the brigade purchased their own “old brick” truck in 1972 which had a 1000 gallon tank fitted with a high capacity pump and a large German monitor. “Operationally the brigade has experienced a number of major fires within the boundaries of Narre Warren North,” he said. This included a Churchill Park fire in 1972, and a man who decided to burn a bush around the end of King Road in Harkaway in 1975, he said. The brigade also assisted in the Black Saturday fire 10 years ago where seven homes were destroyed and several others severely damaged in Narre Warren South.

paKENhaM aNd OFFiCEr


ON THE COVER

AVIVA REINVENTS RETIREMENT IN OFFICER AVIVA Communities has commenced work on what will be a ground breaking residential community for people over 50 at Officer. Managing Director of Aviva Communities Todd Strathdee said the $55million project is all about reinventing retirement and creating a community that is more suited to a young-spirited retiree. “The innovative design of the community and what we are able to offer our homeowners is very different to other options in the market,“ Todd said. Designed by award winning Wolveridge Architects, the homes and clubhouse reflect modern housing styles that are based on the history Officer and embody design practices that optimise liveability for homeowners.

“All living spaces are oriented to the north and achieve a minimum six star energy rating,“ said Todd. “Genuine master-planning means that every home has private open spaces that are achieved without tracts of imposing fences.“ All homes at Aviva Officer come with access to a stunning clubhouse known as The Lodge. The Lodge design reflects the brick kilns and timber mills that were the foundations of enterprise in Officer. With statuesque brick chimneys punctuating stunning timber facades, The Lodge will be home to a range of amenities that support an active social and physical life. Whilst the community is outstanding in

its design credentials, affordability was one of the most important considerations in its creation. “People living in retirement have fixed incomes and worry about how far their money will go. We have invested a lot of time in developing ways to provide our homeowners with financial certainty and a greater level of control over their cost of living,“ explained Todd. “At Aviva Communities Officer we are able to offer our homeowners financial peace of mind by rethinking the traditional way these communities work. One example of this is managing electricity costs through a marketleading energy system. We didn’t want out residents to be scrimping on the heater

in winter and A/C in summer, so we did something about that. We are able to offer our residents energy in a way that provides certainty and protects them against the everincreasing electricity price hikes.“ Located on McMullen Road, Aviva Communities Officer is within walking distance of the future planned Officer Town Centre and has the added benefit of being adjacent to the Gum Scrub Creek Nature Reserve. Aviva Officer will be launched in mid 2019. To register your interest and to take advantage of pre-release purchase benefits call 1800 961 585 or register on www. avivacommunities.com.au ●

At Aviva Officer we are challenging the traditional approach to retirement living Modern energy-efficient homes, inspiring lifestyle facilities and providing a safe, secure community are of course central. However, what is different is how we are genuinely helping you meet the very real and everyday demands of retirement – with our mission to provide homeowners with more choice, financial control and certainty in their future.

Locals step up to fight By Brendan Rees Two Casey women will walk in this year's Mother's Day Classic to raise money for breast cancer, something that is very close to their hearts. After suffering from breast cancer for nearly 10 years, the four-kilometre Mother's Day Classic walk is a huge feat for Sharon who was restricted from doing any physical activity for years. The 68 year-old Clyde North resident has kick started her training regime by doing two kilometre walks with her husband Don to get her ready to join the quest to find a cure for breast cancer. "I asked my two children not to give me a mother's day present but to sponsor me," she said. "I had breast cancer nearly 10 years ago and then last year in August I got breast cancer again - a different type." Sharon, who lives at Lifestyle Berwick Waters, said she was undergoing chemotherapy but found this "really difficult to cope with" and now has Herceptin treatment, a targeted cancer drug every three weeks at Dandenong Hospital. A shocking 48 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day in Australia. This is a stark reality for Jodi Dyer of Lyndhurst who watched her best friend and seven family members suffer from the disease. The 50 year-old is now determined to raise funds for cancer research by participating in numerous charity events. "I've always been an advocate for breast cancer because of the family history but now it's really ripping at my heart with my best friend," she said. "It doesn't matter how old you are you've just got to be aware." Jodi is the operations manager at Lifestyle

Sharon McLean will join residents from Lifestyle Berwick Waters for the Mother’s Day Classic walk. 192598 Communities, a company that has 13 residential communities for over 50s in and around Melbourne. She said all their home owners, team members, families were participating in the walk to

"do the best we can." "This Mother's Day Classic my kids asked what I wanted for mother's day and I said they're doing it with me," Jodi added.

Lifestyle Communities hopes to achieve its single largest group to ever walk with 600 attendees at the Mother's Day Classic which will be held on Sunday 12 May at the Alexandra Gardens, Melbourne.

health care system for the entire community. According to government figures, 45 per cent of metropolitan emergency department presentations are non-urgent. Tiny Hearts has also compiled statistics from participants, illustrating the importance of teaching the critical first aid skills. After the course, 98 per cent of parents said they felt more confident to act effectively in an emergency. Almost 50 per cent reported that they had used their acquired infant and child first aid knowledge within six months of undertaking the course. Narre Warren's Shelby Cooke, who performed CPR on her choking two-year-old daughter while paramedics rushed to their home, stressed the importance of first aid training. She believes that had she not received the course through her workplace, her daughter may have suffocated. "I still owe everything to having those skills," she said. "The more people that are equipped with them, the less tragedies we're going to see with children, babies and toddlers. "It's such a frightening thing to go through - so you need to be prepared." The free sessions will be held across the region, including at Beaconhills College, in Pakenham. Topics covered will include choking, fevers, convulsions, burns, drowning, bleeding, caring for an unconscious person, bites and stings and head injuries. Parents or caregivers interested in undertaking the free training can sign up by heading to: www.tinyheartsfirstaid.com/fundedcourse.

Hearts to help

A lifesaving Pakenham-based venture, spearheaded by a paramedic and a teacher, has received a federal cash injection to provide free first aid training throughout Melbourne's south-east. Tiny Hearts - founded by sisters Rachael Waia and Nikki Jurcutz - will arm 1800 local parents and carers with the skillsets required to save their children in the event of an emergency. In a regional first, 300 parents are also set to be trained bilingually, catering for Chinese and Afghan communities. Their journey began in a garage, but Tiny Hearts now has a headquarters in Pakenham's Industrial Park - proving that business success is attainable under the most challenging circumstances. Ms Waia, a former educator and volunteer first responder, was first aid trained when she was just 15 years old. She is determined to share her vital knowledge with as many parents as possible. "I've got two kids of my own and I know what it's like when they choke and when they're really sick," she said. "Because we've got such a good report built with our parents, we get a lot of feedback where they say, hey, you literally saved our babies' lives. "I love what I do - waking up and making a difference." Tiny Hearts worked in conjunction with the South East Melbourne Primary Health Network to secure the federal grant. The organisation also hopes to reduce the number of inappropriate admissions to the emergency department and create a better

Lawyers own the court The lawyers at Duffy & Simon in Pakenham brought it all to court, playing off for the Pakenham Netball Association senior mixed Division 2 final against local team COBS recently at Cardinia Life. The Duffy & Simon mixed netball team was made up of players from the local law firm, with many having a background in the local West Gippsland Football Netball Competition. Duffy & Simon partner Sandy Keysers, from Nar Nar Goon Football Netball Club, added her skills on the court by playing a dangerous wing attack in the final. Receptionist Grace Cunningham was awarded best on court honours in the grand final and talked about the positives of playing a sport together. “The Duffy & Simon netball team has attributed to the positive workplace culture and team environment within the firm,” she said. The first half of the game was a close affair, but Duffy & Simon managed to get a break in the third quarter by creating many turnovers in the defensive end and mid-court. This saw goalers Grace Cunningham and Robert Hall convert with great accuracy. The local law firm had a great turn out from family, friends and co-workers with over 35 people attending to watch the victory on the night. Captain Maggie White said the win was a testament to the culture the side had developed and praised her teammates on their performance. “We knew we wanted it and I wanted to see it from them and they definitely delivered,” she said. Thanks to a top performance by the lawyers on the night, Duffy & Simon secured its first Pakenham Netball Association Division 2 premiership over the COBS, 25-14. Duffy & Simon’s starting line-up included: Robert Hall (GS), Grace Cunningham (Nar Nar Goon Netball Club, GA), Sandy Keysers (Nar Nar Goon Netball Club, WA), Maggie White (Nar Nar Goon Netball Club, C), Chris Luxford (ROC Netball Club, WD), Olivia Hunt (Bunyip Netball Club, GD), and Bryce Grimshaw (Trafalgar Footy Club, GK).

Duffy & Simon Lawyers proved their talents on the netball court.

Warriors get the job done at Big V level By Hayley Wildes It was another strong weekend of Big V basketball for the Pakenham Warriors, with three teams chalking up wins. It wasn't necessarily pretty, but when the game was there to be won, the Division 2 men rose to the occasion and took care of business against Wallan at home on Sunday afternoon. With the Panthers hitting their shots from deep, the Warriors struggled to keep up and just under halfway through the third quarter trailed by eight points, 53-45. Josh Dow was doing his best to keep Pakenham in the contest and when he completed a massive and-1 with four minutes to play in the third quarter, the Warriors had suddenly evened up the contest, 53-53. It was Dow and Daniel Steen that helped get Pakenham on top with clutch plays down the stretch and when Steen grabbed a steal and finished on the other end, the game was all but over, with Pakenham leading 78-70.

The Warriors ran out 82-73 winners, finishing the game on a 37-20 run in the final 15 minutes, with Josh Dow (23 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists), Brad Bridgewater (15 points and 10 rebounds), Daniel Steen (13 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists) and John Creighton (16 points and 11 rebounds) producing terrific performances. The win sees Pakenham (6-0) remain undefeated and sit second on the ladder. Meanwhile, the Division 2 women took on Sherbrooke on the road on Saturday night and came away with a hard-fought win. With both struggling from deep, it was Pakenham's dominance on the boards and ability to convert second chance opportunities that was the difference. Young gun Ellie Coutts (18 points, 12 rebounds, 7 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks) and Steph Pal (15 points, 8 rebounds, 4 steals and 3 assists) led the way as the Warriors claimed a 66-61 win to improve to 4-1 on the season and sit second on the ladder.

The Youth League 2 men made light work of Keysborough at home on Sunday, winning 97-80. Pakenham's willingness to share the ball was key to the win as they dished out 24 assists, compared to just 10 from the Cougars. Ned Weideman (24 points and 14 rebounds) and Lee Belton (19 points and 4 assists) led the Warriors home. The Warriors (5-0) remain undefeated and sit on top of the ladder. The Youth League 2 women were unable to get over the line against Sherbrooke on Saturday night, falling just short of victory, 70-65. Jasmine Ralls (15 points and 5 rebounds) and Sarah Thomson (11 rebounds and 10 points) did all they could for Pakenham but it wasn't enough. The Warriors (2-4) sit ninth. There's no Big V action this week, with teams returning to the court the following weekend.

Brad Bridgewater (15 points and 10 rebounds) was vital in Pakenham's win over Wallan. 192335 Picture: ROB CAREW

Doves draw level with City as FFV race heats right up By Nick Creely FFV STATE LEAGUE SOCCER REVIEW - ROUND 4 STATE LEAGUE 1 - SOUTH-EAST The Casey Comets have been unable to keep their momentum going, going down 0-1 to Eltham Redbacks FC at Comets Stadium on Saturday afternoon. The Redbacks were the better side from the outset, but the Comets fought hard - particularly in their defensive half to stay in the match. 22 STAR NEWS

Doveton SC drew 3-3 with Malvern City at Waratah Reserve, despite being down at halftime. Disappointingly for the Doves, they couldn't capitalize after scoring a goal in the opening minutes, going into the main break with a 2-1 deficit. A penalty gave City the best possible start to the second half and a 3-1 lead to go with it, but the Doves found the back of the net only minutes later before Josh Frame found the equaliser in the 89th minute.

STATE LEAGUE 2 - SOUTH-EAST Berwick City suffered its first loss of the 2019 season, going down 1-2 to Brandon Park at home on Saturday afternoon. Both sides were even at half time 1-1, but the visitors found the match-winning goal in the second half to hold on and claim the points. STATE LEAGUE 5 - SOUTH Pakenham United would be rueing missed opportunities after going down 0-2 at home to

Somerville on Saturday afternoon. The Eagles found goals in the first half and the second, with United unable to find any real momentum on their home pitch. In other matches, Old Mentonians gave Hampton Park United a hiding, with a 7-1 win in Keysborough, Tullamarine and White Star Dandenong drew 1-1, Aspendale defeated Rosebud 3-1, Knox United were a class above Bunyip 7-2, while Endeavour Hills Fire had a good weekend with a 5-2 win against Casey Panthers. pakenhamnews.starcommunity.com.au

Casey bounces right back entries that were coming in thick and fast. With a quarter to play, Casey held an 83-point lead, 17.10 (112) to 4.5 (29). While the forward line was operating superbly, the work down back from Harrison Petty and Declan Keilty was just as important, ensuring North Melbourne's forwards were never able to get into the game. With the game all but over, Casey took the foot off the gas in the final term and North Melbourne was able to put some respectability on the scoreboard. A six-goal to one term for the Kangaroos saw the Demons run out 54-point winners, 18.11 (119) to 10.5 (65). Despite North Melbourne trimming the deficit significantly in the final term, it was a commanding response from Casey as they rediscovered their pressure and defensive tenacity that led them to last year's grand final. There's no doubt that when the Demons are able to play their brand of footy, they are an incredibly tough team to beat and this performance should be the benchmark going forward. It was a strong team performance from the Demons, with an array of terrific players across the ground. The forward line was led by Jeff Garlett (18 disposals and three goals), who was involved in everything, along with Mitch

Team 11 still committed Team 11 has confirmed its intention to keep alive its ambition of delivering a professional men’s and women’s football club to the southeast of Victoria. The alliance of Team 11 Pty Ltd, the City of Greater Dandenong, City of Casey and Cardinia Shire councils - supported by nine surrounding municipalities and more than 50 grassroots football clubs - remains 100 per cent committed to the A-League/W-League bid that commenced in May 2017. This commitment includes: The retention of Team 11 Pty Ltd, with the ongoing support of shareholders Gerry Ryan, Ghadir Razuki, RMBL Investments, Intrapac Property, Pellicano Group and a local consortium; the City of Greater Dandenong continuing its planning and advocacy for the development of a rectangular sports and entertainment stadium next to Dandenong train station; the City of Casey continuing its planning and advocacy for the development of a football centre of excellence at Casey Fields, which would complement the community football facility currently being built; and Matt Windley continuing in his role as Team 11 Project Officer, working alongside fellow Project Team members Paul Kearsley pakenhamnews.starcommunity.com.au

and Emma Michie. Team 11 has informed members of the New Leagues Working Group and the National Second Division Working Group of its intention to continue to lobby for an A-League/W-League licence and learn more about plans for the creation of a National Second Division. All involved with the Team 11 bid were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and disappointment from members of the southeast Victorian community in the wake of Football Federation Australia’s decision to award A-League licences elsewhere in December. This support - coupled with the bid’s unwavering belief that this booming, multicultural population of more than 1.7 million is capable of growing what could become Australia’s biggest football club - was crucial in convincing all involved to keep the bid going. Team 11 will also continue to be an unashamed advocate for infrastructure development and activity in the south-east as the region continues to be overlooked in favour of others by key decision-makers. Further announcements, including the undertaking of a community-led rebranding process, will be made in due course.

White and Jaxon Briggs (three goals each). Harrison Petty, Mitch Gent (21 disposals) and Declan Keilty were also impressive as the Demons bounced back from a 62-point defeat at the hands of the Hawks last week. For North Melbourne, Tom Campbell, Ky-

ron Hayden and Nicholas Rippon were best in a tough day at the office. Casey has a bye in Round 3 and will return to action in Round 4 in what should be a great contest when they take on Richmond at Casey Fields from 2pm on Saturday, 27 April.

After a poor VFL Round 1 performance against Box Hill, the Casey Demons responded emphatically on Saturday afternoon, demolishing North Melbourne by 54 points at Casey Fields. The win was set up by a dominant first quarter as the Demons slammed on six goals and kept the Kangaroos scoreless. Tim Smith booted the first two goals of the game, before Jeff Garlett soccered through another to have Casey leading 3.3 (21) to 0.0 (0) halfway through the quarter. With Garlett applying intense pressure in the forward half, the Kangaroos were turning the ball over and the Casey forwards feasted on those mistakes. The second quarter was more of the same as Casey continued to put goals on the scoreboard and after Oskar Baker slotted the last two majors of the half, Casey entered the main break with a massive lead, 10.9 (69) to 2.3 (15). Clearly not content, the Demons were even more dangerous around goal in the third term as they put the contest to bed with a sevengoal to two quarter. The likes of Garlett, Baker, skipper Mitch White and Jaxon Briggs were impressive in the forward fifty as the Kangaroos defence just couldn't contain the direct and free-flowing
