By Brendan Rees With the emergency shutdown of cafes and restaurants across the Casey region due to the Coronavirus crisis, many businesses are hurting. Through these troubling times, Star News has unveiled a new a 'Shop Local' campaign to help businesses stay afloat, which will run across Star's publications. "We are encouraging local people to buy locally and provide as many struggling businesses as possible the opportunity to get their messages out that they are still open for business or to let readers know about their changed operating methods," Star News Group managing director Paul Thomas said. Mr Thomas said everyone had been impacted by the crisis and together "we can only try to reduce that impact as much as possible". "Our own business has had a significant detrimental impact. Please shop locally, help an impacted business and keep as many people employed as we can." It comes as the Victorian State Government ordered a shutdown of non-essential industries such as cafes, restaurants, pubs, clubs,

Vista Cafe director Adam Sadiqzai, left, with his team Mel Hodges, Leonie Clark and John Barbaressos, who are feeling the pinch during the Coronavirus crisis. 206832 and Crown Casino among others from midday on Monday 23 March to curb the spread of Covid-19 - leaving businesses to plunge into unchartered waters. Cafes and restaurants can still operate but are restricted to takeaway - a measure which has left the Shingle Inn cafe at Fountain Gate Shopping Centre in a dire situation as he was forced to lay of five workers. "I don't know what will happen this year. I can't predict anything but clearly I don't have any income," the owner of the cafe, Sunil Ariyaratne, said, who had seen a big drop in customers due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Shoppers were also sparse at Fountain Gate, he said, with the normally bustling area

turning into an eerie solitude. Mr Ariyaratne added he was also stressed about his 21-year-old daughter, a medical student in England, who has been asked to help in a hospital as the country deals with the Coronavirus outbreak. Degani Bakery Cafe owner Ayman Beshay, also at Fountain Gate, had also been forced to lay off staff and was losing money fast. In Cranbourne, Kelly's Hotel, which has been a popular watering hole for over a century, have resorted to a pick-up menu service through its bottle shop, which has remained opened and complies with social distancing rules with a tap and go service through a window.

"In these particular moments in time there is no major issue because all the staff are paid ... it's next week when the money doesn't come in there's going to be the issue," the hotel's manager Michael Goldie said. City of Casey CEO Glenn Patterson said the welfare of the business community remained a top priority. "Our team of economic development officers are available to speak with businesses to help navigate the options available from the Federal and State Government. Additionally, we are developing a package of local initiatives to offer support and relief to our community. This will be communicated when available," Mr Patterson said.

IN BRIEF

Covid-19 measures By Cam Lucadou-Wells A 500-strong police ‘coronavirus’ taskforce and a shut-down of “non-essential“ services has been announced in a bid to “save lives“ during the Covid-19 pandemic. The “non-essential” businesses will be shut down from midday on Monday 23 March, and government school holidays have been brought forward to Tuesday 24 March. As of early on 25 March, Victoria had recorded 466 coronavirus cases - up by 55 in the previous 24-hours. Premier Daniel Andrews announced that coronavirus police squad officers will increase spot checks on returned travellers in 14-day isolation as well as on limits to indoor and outdoor gatherings. Mr Andrews said police would not hesitate to enforce fines of up to $20,000 for breaches. It was confirmed that police had found a number of travellers breaching isolation rules, as well as intervening in misbehaviour at supermarkets. The crackdown was necessary because “unacceptable” mass gatherings at nightclubs, pubs and bars across Melbourne would otherwise “cost lives”. “It’s disappointing it’s come to this,” he said. In a dire warning, Mr Andrews said if the Covid-19 virus “gets away from us”, there will be a situation in which there won’t be enough critical-care beds, doctors, nurses and ventilators to keep people alive.

Daniel Andrews has announced Stage 1 shutdowns to combat the spread of coronavirus. If people acted “selfishly” and didn’t take the threat “seriously”, people would die. As a “Stage 1” of “unprecedented” service shutdowns, pubs, clubs, nightclubs, Crown Casino and licensed venues in hotels and pubs will be closed. Gyms, indoor sport venues, places of worship, cinemas and entertainment venues are also closed. Takeaway and home delivery services from restaurants and cafes are exempt. The Stage 1 bans will be in place until 13 April - though it is “highly likely” that the shut-

downs will widen and last beyond that date, Mr Andrews said. He said many Victorians were acting “selfishly” by flouting the rules such as indoor gatherings of 100 people and outdoor gatherings of 500. The new rules didn’t mean to “have your mates home and get on the beers”. He cited the example of a guest with Covid-19 infecting all the attendees at a dinner party over the weekend. “It’s not essential and it’s not appropriate.” Government schools will be closed for holidays from the end of the school day on Monday 23 March. It brings school holidays forward from Friday 27 March, giving schools the chance to prepare for the possibility of remote, online learning for students. “These are no ordinary school holidays,” Mr Andrews said, declaring that going over to friends’ places and hanging out at shopping malls as “not appropriate”. Kindergartens and child care services will be still open at this stage, Mr Andrews said. “I call on every Victorian to undertake their civic duty and practise social distancing: don’t be closer than 1.5 metres from another person, wash your hands and practise good hand hygiene.” For latest updates and advice, go to dhhs.vic. gov.au/coronavirus

Cranbourne Food Truck shuts down By Brendan Rees Casey’s needy will be left without hot meals as the Coronavirus pandemic forces the closure of the Cranbourne Food Truck. The Cranbourne Regional Uniting Church, which runs the truck, officially put it services on hold from Saturday night, 21 March. Reverend Ray McCluskey said the truck’s dedicated volunteers were devastated by the decision - but one they had to make for the sake of everyone’s health which was of “primary concern” in the wake of Covid-19 crisis. “It’s a very, very difficult situation for us,” Rev McCluskey said, as the government announced more stringent social distancing measures to curb the virus. Sixty volunteers would normally go out four times a week, providing up to 25 free hot meals as well as fresh fruit and vegetables and nonperishables to those in need. Rev McCluskey said it would still try to reach out to clients through its Facebook page and blog site which contained news, messages, and videos - “so they don’t feel isolated and left out”. “The content and quality will grow as we move along but we could be here for some months,” he said. “It just couldn’t a situation where we’re potentially gathering people who might be very susceptible in any way and have ongoing health concerns,” he said.

Man charged over shooting Armed Crime Squad detectives have charged a man in relation to a shooting in Narre Warren South earlier this month. It is alleged a man was shot in the upper body while seated in a car on Shrives Road about 5am, 7 March. The man was transported to hospital in a critical condition. On 19 March police arrested a 33-year-old Lynbrook man and 22-year-old Narre Warren woman. The man has been charged with attempted murder. The woman was charged with possess drug of dependence, commit offences whilst on bail and weapons related offences. The pair will face Melbourne Magistrates Court on 19 March.

Bikie clubhouse torched A bikie clubhouse has gone up in flames in Cranbourne West after emergency services responded to reports of an explosion during the early hours of Thursday 19 March. Police found the Finks Outlaw Motorcycle Club clubhouse on Morialta Road extensively damaged by fire after attending the scene about 1.30am. The CFA sent four trucks from Hallam, Cranbourne, and Skye to the building where the blaze was brought under control within halfan-hour. It is believed no one was in the property at the time and no one was injured. Hours earlier, police were called to a supplement store on Nepean Highway, Frankston following reports of a fire just after 11pm. A short time later and distance away police were then called to a car on fire in Brunel Road Seaford about 11.10pm. Investigators are looking at the possibility that the incidents are linked. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au

Police impound a car after a man was caught speeding on the Monash Freeway. The Cranbourne Food Truck will be kept behind locked gates in response to the Coronavirus crisis. Pictured is volunteer Chris Marsh who is devastated by the outcome. 206879 Picture: STEWART CHAMBERS “From our perspective, because the model of what we do is hot meal sit down - it made it very difficult.” Rev McCluskey said the Food Truck, which started in 2012, would review its closure at the end of April. He praised the “fantastic” free home delivery meal service being offered by the Casey Sikh community during the crisis but said “unfortunately at this time we don’t have the ability to do that”. Heartbroken volunteer Chris Marsh said

the truck’s closure was still sinking in. “It literally changes overnight; I’ve had a few days to get used to it but I’m still not there yet,” she said. “You worry about those people and how they’re surviving. Unfortunately we’re not in a position to help them at the moment.” Meanwhile, the church had also closed its doors to the public - with worship services being uploaded to Facebook as it responds to the pandemic gripping the world.

Speedster caught Casey Highway Patrol have caught a man speeding more than 50 kilometres above the speed limit on the Monash Freeway on Saturday the 21 March. Police clocked the small SUV allegedly travelling at 157km/h in an 100km/h zone about 2.55am. The vehicle at the time was being used for ride sharing services with two clients on board. The driver, a man in his 50s, had his vehicle impounded for 30 days and had to call for another ride sharing service to collect him. He is expected to be charged with speeding matters and will attend court at a later date.

Free food in crisis By Brendan Rees In a time of crisis, a group of kind-hearted Sikh volunteers have banded together by delivering free food to people's homes. The Sikh Volunteers Australia - a not-forprofit organisation based in Devon Meadows - are offering free food with home delivery services for the next two weeks to those in need due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The charity's vice president, Manpreet Singh, said since starting the service on 18 March, the volunteers had responded to 300 orders on the first day which was backed up by 460 meal deliveries the following day. "We have a few categories; we are not giving the food to everyone," Mr Singh explained. "We are giving to those people who are directly or indirectly affected by this virus especially disabled people, aged people who can't go shopping and they have to stay home," he said. He said they were also helping single mums, families who had recently returned from overseas, people experiencing homelessness, and those who had lost their jobs. The service was also targeting people who are in self-isolation across the south east with Mr Singh saying they had received three calls from people who had contracted Coronavirus. The home deliveries were in addition to the Sikh volunteers' weekly free food van which has been increased to three times a week during the crisis - where they provided 130 meals in one night after setting up their van in Frankston and Tooradin. Those grateful for the service have taken to social media sharing their heartfelt admiration for the selfless volunteers. "Thank you for your kindness. Hearts of pure love," one posted. "You are simply wonderful humans - thank

The food menu announced on social media includes gluten free pasta, veg soya curry, chickpea curry, veg korma and fresh salad. The Facebook advertisement said volunteers would deliver meals to people in Cranbourne, Tooradin, Hampton Park, Lyndhurst, Lynbrook, Junction Village, Devon Meadows, Narre Warren, and Berwick. Last December the Sikh Volunteers responded to the bushfire crisis by providing free meals to thousands of people at a relief centre set up at the Bairnsdale football oval. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced on 18 March for Australians to "stop hoarding" food supplies at supermarkets, labelling the behaviour as "un-Australian" and "not sensible".

"It is not helpful and it has been one of the most disappointing things I have seen in Australian behaviour in response to this crisis," Mr Morrison said at the press conference at Parliament House, adding the government could impose limits if the panic buying continued. "Stop hoarding. I can't be more blunt about it. Stop it," he said. "There is no reason for people to be hoarding supplies in fear of a lockdown or anything like this." Twenty-nine new cases of Covid-19 were confirmed on 18 March bringing the total number of cases in Victoria to 150. The new cases include 17 men and 12 women, with people aged from their early twenties to their early seventies. The Department of Health and Human Services is continuing to investigate all new cases.

Kids cough in face of kiosk worker By Brendan Rees A kiosk worker says she is now too scared to return to work after a group of kids coughed in her face at Cranbourne Park Shopping Centre. Paullie, who did not want her surname used, said she saw the group boys and girls run amok in the centre as she worked behind the counter of a phone repair shop about 2pm on Monday 16 March. "They walked past once. I heard them coughing so I just looked at them and they just laughed," she said. The group then returned where their unruly behaviour continued. Paullie said they "pretended" to enquire about the cost to fix one of their phones before one leaned over the counter and coughed straight in her face in a blatant disregard of social distancing and good hygiene as the country implements stringent measures to stem the spread of Coronavirus. Paullie, who was luckily wearing a mask, filmed the horrifying incident on her phone.

She wanted to share her experience to not only highlight the bad behaviour but to deter others thinking about carrying out such pranks in the midst of the crisis. She said other shopkeepers at the centre had been harassed in recent days - with other youths coughing in front of staff in what had appeared to be deliberate acts. "Right now I don't really want to work over there," Paullie, 30, said, labelling the behaviour as "terrible". Nearby shops called security - however the video showed the group walking off as they appeared to continue coughing loudly and laughing in front of shocked onlookers. The video was shared on Facebook by a friend of Paullie, who was concerned for her safety. "I am disgusted and saddened that these kids have done this I honestly can't believe it," Eryn Clarke said on the post. "This kind of behaviour needs to be stopped. It is already a highly stressful time for everyone without disgusting cruel

behaviour like this. "I'm hoping this video reaches the parents of these children as I'm sure they won't be impressed with their kids terrorising people like this." Victorian schools had their last day of school term on Monday 23 March - which was brought forward by four days - however the Premier Daniel Andrews said holidays for children were out as the nation was placed in lockdown to slow the spread of Coronavirus. Mr Andrews also reinforced calls for every Victorian to undertake practice social distancing. "Call it mateship. Call it your civic duty. I don't really mind. But please follow the rules," he said. "Don't be closer than 1.5 metres from another person, wash your hands and practice good hand hygiene. "Do that for yourself, your loved ones and for the loved ones of people you have never met. It will save lives."

Five men have been arrested after allegedly being caught with nearly 400 sea snails on the Mornington Peninsula on Wednesday 8 March. Victorian Fisheries Authority director of education and enforcement Ian Parks said the highly organised illegal fishing syndicate from Pakenham, Cranbourne East and Botanic Ridge had illegally captured blacklip abalone at Cape Schanck. The group was apprended and a car seized by 12 fisheries officers with support from Victoria Police. "This type of alleged illegal fishing has the potential to do serious damage to the sustainability of Victoria's abalone population, which is highly valued by commercial and recreational fishers," Mr Parks said. He said Fisheries officers saw four of the men walk from the car park down to the rocks, as one stayed back as a lookout. It's alleged three entered the water for several hours to dive for abalone while the fourth acted as a look out. Mr Parks said when the four men returned to their Commodore and allegedly put a large bag of abalone in the boot, Fisheries officers swooped in numbers. He said all five of the alleged men ran away, some not making it far while others hid in dense scrub nearby until being located and arrested. Officers found a bag in a car boot allegedly containing 315 abalone. "However officers who'd done surveillance on the men suspected more abalone had been harvested, so entered the water to search," he said. Officers allegedly found two more bags containing another 84 abalone, making 399 in total, 263 of which were undersize. Fisheries officers returned all the abalone to the water alive and Victoria Police transported the men to the Rosebud Police Station. The men have been charged under the Fisheries Act including taking and possessing a commercial quantity of a priority species, trafficking a commercial quantity of a priority species, and obstructing and hindering authorised officers. "I commend all the Fisheries Officers involved in this case for their extensive and professional work to stop this well organised and slick crew of illegal fishers from stealing aquatic natural resources that belong to the Victorian community," Mr Parks said.

Helping find a school

RAY’S SAY

The State Government's Findmyschool website has been updated so parents continue to have the latest information to find out the school zone they live in. Minister for Education James Merlino said the updates include school zones for the 14 new schools opening at the start of 2021. The website allows parents to find their closest Government school and other nearby government schools, giving parents clarity and consistency on what their public school options are. Schools can be found by typing in a residential address or searching by school name. Findmyschool will show the zone for the current enrolment year and the 2021 enrolment year. No student currently enrolled in a school will be required to change schools. When the site was launched last year, it was the first-time school zone maps became easily accessible in one place, giving schools and parents access to an official source of information on government school zones. Minister for Education James Merlino said: "The website takes the guess work out of identifying their closest government school, giving parents the clarity they need when deciding which school to enrol their child in."

Their actions aren't socially acceptable at the best of times. - Someone needs to teach them that they may be unknowingly spreading the COVID-19 virus. Just disgusting behaviour.

Thumbs up To all our politicians no matter of party persuasion for their handling of this horrid virus predicament.

Thumbs down To the nastiest virus ever known to human kind

Thumbs up To those helping each other with essential goods that can't be found in stores right now?

Thumbs up To having a strong safety net for everyone right now.

Thumbs down To being stuck at home while work is suspended

On Monday 16 March a story was shared on the Berwick Star News Facebook page about Coles extending its shopping hours exclusively to emergency workers. Here is how one reader reacted online: Bella Tracey: That's all well and good but one problem they need to stock their shelves unfortunately people can't get the necessities they need due to all the people who thought it was OK to over buy and only think of themselves. Everyone needs to eat and because of selfish people everyone misses out that includes the people that could be ones that have to save your life a loved one's life etc. Maybe these stores should keep all the stuff out the back that are being selfishly taken so it allows everyone to be able to buy it.

Kind hearts share care Small acts of kindness can get lost in times of crisis. The Sasa family of Cranbourne share their heartfelt story after rescuing an elderly woman who was left stranded at a shopping centre, reports BRENDAN REES. Miriama Sasa had just picked up her kids from school when she got a call from her husband to help an elderly woman battling to breathe. Her husband, Paul Sasa, was on shift as a security guard at Cranbourne Park Shopping Centre when he came to the aid of a distressed 76-year-old woman on Friday afternoon, 13 March. The woman, who walks with a frame, was fighting to breathe as her oxygen tank was running low. Mr Sasa spoke with the woman - before strict social distancing rules came in during the Coronavirus crisis - and found a phone number on the tank and organised for a replacement cylinder to be sent to her home. The woman, who had caught a taxi to the centre, was too overwhelmed and exhausted to go home alone - which prompted Mr Sasa to call his wife about the woman's ordeal. At this stage, Mrs Sasa was on her way to the supermarket with her four kids, some still in their school uniforms. "He told me just to drop everything and come over and help this lady," Mrs Sasa said. With her kids in the car, Mrs Sasa, a disability support worker, drove the woman home

where they stayed and kept her company for a few hours. They exchanged phone numbers and have maintained regular contact including FaceTime calls which the woman conducts with Mrs Sasa "and kids all the time now" as well as spending time together over dinner. Mrs Sasa, who was born in Samoa, said it was part of her culture to help the elderly: "That's what my husband did what he did; that's how we've been taught." Since her heartbreaking experience, she has shared her story on Facebook in the hope to inspire others. "It doesn't cost much to show kindness; our kids have learnt a lot from her experiences. We have made a new best friend forever," she said on the post. "The saddest thing today was she was using Pine O Cleen we use to mop the floors as hand sanitiser, she said she couldn't find any anywhere. So tomorrow we're on a mission to find her some hand sanitiser." When asked how Mrs Sasa's family was coping with the Covid-19 crisis, she said: "At this stage we're OK ... we believe in our faith. I know that I believe we're going to get through this."

Cops gear up for Covid duty

Newspapers under threat Independent community newspapers may be forced to close within weeks unless the Federal Government unlocks up to $40 million in urgent funding. With a number of regional and community newspapers closing this week, including Mildura’s 130-year-old Sunraysia Times, newspaper proprietors are calling for immediate assistance from the government. The Federal Government had previously set aside $40 million in an Innovation Fund to assist country and regional community publications. However the money has not been spent and now newspapers are in desperate need of Federal Government support. Star News Group’s managing director Paul Thomas said: “News media mastheads are closing, yet $40 million remains in a previously guaranteed Federal Government innovation fund, promised and locked in when changes were announced to reform media laws. “The Great Southern Star after 130 years of publishing, the Sunraysia Daily in Mildura, Swan Hill Guardian and the Gannawarra Times have all announced closures this week. “To help maintain this vital information source at a critical time, the Federal Government needs to allocate the $40 million remaining in the Innovation Fund be repurposed to a regional and community newsmedia SURVIVAL fund. “Our company, Star News Group, employs approximately 150 people and has 20 news media mastheads, including Pakenham, Geelong, Healesville, Wyndham, Ocean Grove, Warwick and Noosa.

Our industry association Country Press Australia should be given the job of distribution. We can start that process tomorrow. “Democracy as we know it today will be changed forever, unless something is done now.” * Paul Thomas is the Managing Director of Star News Group, which publishes this masthead.

Victoria Police has established a dedicated operation to enforce containment measures put in place to combat the spread of Coronavirus. Operation Sentinel will see police conduct spot checks on returning travelers who should be in self isolation and follow up tips received from the general public and other sources. It will also enforce bans on indoor and outdoor gatherings at non-essential venues and businesses. Police will proactively patrol places of mass gathering such as beaches and shopping centres to ensure restrictions are being complied with. The operation will be centrally managed out of the State Police Operations Centre and resourced by 500 police from Transit, the Public Order Response Team, and police across Victoria who will perform these checks and enforce bans. Deputy Commissioner Nugent said situations will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, and police have a range of options available to deal with those who refuse to follow the directions of the Chief Health Officer. "People can be issued with an official warning, directed to return home, or charged on summons where a person repeatedly refuses to obey a direction or blatantly disregards the restrictions. People can also face heavy fines" he said. "We are urging people to take the restrictions seriously and do the right thing - don't be selfish is our message," he said. "For police, it's not just about fines or arrests but ensuring everyone in the community understands the serious risks associated with Coronavirus and the importance of complying with the directions from the Chief Health Officer. "We know this is a challenging time for everyone and we'll be asking our officers to use a commonsense approach when dealing with these matters. "Already we have seen a degree of ignorance

Police conduct a spot check wth a person in self-quarantine. Picture: VICTORIA POLICE where people think it's okay to just go out for a breakfast or to see a friend when it's absolutely not. "We also want to take advantage of Operational Sentinel to engage with the community, provide any further education around current requirements, and do everything we can to protect the safety of all Victorians. "It gives police the opportunity to check on the health and wellbeing of those in self isolation, and see if they need any further support such as medical assistance," Deputy Commissioner Nugent said. "So far, people are for the most part complying with the restrictions. We want to ensure that continues and people are showing each other the right amount of respect. "People who ignore the restrictions are placing others at significant risk, which means more people will become infected. This includes their family, friends and others in the community." At this time, no one has been charged with refusing or failing to comply with the direction. Fines for people who do not comply with the direction are $20,000 for individuals or $100,000 for companies or corporations.

Bridget O'Toole has tried to block out the painful memory the day her husband was tragically killed by two stab wounds to the upper chest. "I've got to be kinder to myself because you torture yourself thinking could've done more," says Mrs O'Toole. "Survivor guilt isn't good." It was 5pm on 12 July 2013 when a man wielding a 20-centimetre carving knife entered Bridget and Dermot O'Toole's jewellery store in Hastings. "I thought it was a customer coming in and I just got up to serve him," she said.

She’s our hero By Brendan Rees Bridget O'Toole has tried to block out the painful memory the day her husband was tragically killed by two stab wounds to the upper chest. "I've got to be kinder to myself because you torture yourself thinking could've done more," says Mrs O'Toole. "Survivor guilt isn't good." It was 5pm on 12 July 2013 when a man wielding a 20-centimetre carving knife entered Bridget and Dermot O'Toole's jewellery store in Hastings. "I thought it was a customer coming in and I just got up to serve him," she said. However Mrs O'Toole, of Lyndhurst, was attacked by the armed assailant who pushed her into a glass cabinet and stabbed her several times. "He was screaming like a lunatic," she recalled. During the attack Mr O'Toole, who suffered from Parkinson's Disease, came out from the workshop to defend his wife and began wrestling with the assailant. "We were just trying to fight him off ... Dermot was desperately trying to save me." "Dermot fell over, he tripped over and he turned on him and stabbed him to death," she said. Mrs O'Toole attempted to pull the offender away from her husband and in doing so she was

further assaulted. The assailant then ran out of the shop. Mr O'Toole, 64, was fatally wounded and tragically died at the scene. Mrs O'Toole was taken to hospital where she had to undergo plastic surgery for the extensive serious stab and slash wounds and the glass shards that were embedded in her back. For her actions, Mrs O'Toole was awarded the 2018 Gold Clarke Medal during a presentation at the Melbourne Town Hall on Thursday 23 August. "It was a beautiful day," says Mrs O'Toole.

Mrs O'Toole was taken to hospital where she had to undergo plastic surgery for the extensive serious stab and slash wounds and the glass shards that were embedded in her back. For her actions, Mrs O'Toole was awarded the 2018 Gold Clarke Medal during a presentation at the Melbourne Town Hall on Thursday 23 August. "It was a beautiful day," says Mrs O'Toole. "I was totally humbled and to be deemed worthy of such a prestigious award I couldn't believe it." The medal is an award of The Royal Humane Society of Australasia and is the Society's highest award for the most outstanding case of bravery. Mr O'Toole was posthumously awarded the Star of Courage in 2017 - Australia's highest bravery accolades which recognises "acts of conspicuous courage in circumstances of great peril". The robber, Gavin Perry, 27, was high after taking ice and on parole at the time of the murder. He was jailed for 27 years in 2014 for the crime. Mrs O'Toole remembers her husband of 41 years as a wonderful man who was a funny, kind and loyal man."I had the best husband and we had a great life together," she said. "Life has just been horrible since."

Kerrigan releases album By Brendan Rees Singer-songwriter Kerrigan La-Brooy is excited to soon be releasing his much anticipated Gospel album. The senior pastor of Gethsemane Church in Berwick said he was thrilled to make "a longawaited come-back" to the music scene after releasing his seventh studio recording and first Gospel 10-track album. "It's nothing short of a miracle," Kerrigan, a father of six said, adding he planned to release the album in April. Kerrigan, who has won an array of Casey and state awards, particularly for his volunteer work with the Gethsemane Charity which provides food and clothes to more than 400 people every day, said he was most thrilled one of the tracks featured his children aged six to 11. Kerrigan dedicated about 30 hours creating the album and apart from doing all the lead vocals, he also does some harmonies. He put his music career on hold after meeting his love Michelle, whom he married in 2007. The Sri-Lankan born musician had toured the world until 2008 and at one point "topped the charts" but says raising his "priceless treasures" with his wife had been his greatest reward. "I decided to return to the recording studio to raise funds for Gethsemane in order to continue God's work, spread the love of Jesus and extend the Lord's kingdom," he said. This is on top of hosting a radio show every Wednesday night on Casey Radio, running a children's talent academy and an opportunity shop, leading worship, organising the annual Clyde Carols by Candlelight, and visiting the poor and the elderly. He described his return to the recording studio like "a fish to water" and added "there will definitely be more than one album". The Gospel album, which is yet to be

named, will cost $25 however anyone interested in pre-ordering and paying now, it will cost just $20.

Kerrigan is bearing the entire cost of producing the album which runs into thousands of dollars. He has also donated 50 per cent upfront. Account details for purchases or donations: Kerrigan La-Brooy - Commonwealth Bank Cheque Account.

"It's important to keep in mind that 50 per cent of all sales go straight into the work Gethsemane does in the community."

SPORT

Jerome Jones enjoyed a stellar first season at Buckley Ridges. 203725

Picture: ROB CAREW

DDCA’s best of the best It’s been another strong season for some of the star cricketers of the Dandenong District’s toptier, and DDCA reporter Nick Creely has chosen his Turf 1 Team of the Year, based on the home-and-away season. It was an extremely unfortunate end to the Turf 1 season, with the standalone grand final scheduled on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 March cancelled amid the Covid-19 pandemic, with Berwick picking up its first premiership since 2011/12 due to finishing on top of the ladder at the conclusion of the regular rounds. Buckley Ridges - which was shooting for back-to-back flags - finished as runner-up after qualifying for the decider after finishing in fourth position. Here is the team (in batting order): Matthew Chasemore (Berwick, captain) - 617 runs at 61.7, highest score: 134* Now a Berwick premiership captain, the exVictorian Premier Cricket great enjoyed one of his most prolific scoring seasons in a number of years, mostly opening the batting for the Bears. The left-hander made a superb 134 not out against Buckley Ridges and also struck scores of 55 not out, 70 not out, 91 and 98 to be one of the most consistent top-order players in the association once again. He also led the Bears superbly throughout the season, which ultimately ended up in the Turf 1 flag after finishing on top of the table. Ateeq Javid (Springvale South) - 565 runs at 51.4, HS: 110, four wickets at 31.5 The overseas pro joined the Bloods as their skipper and had an immediate impact with scores of 110, 87, 75 not out and 63 all before Christmas to completely take the competition by storm. While his form tailed off slightly after the break, Javid was a driving force in the club’s push towards finals, and almost finished 18 STAR NEWS

the season with 600 home-and-away runs next to his name. Morteza Ali (Narre South) - 438 runs at 33.7, HS: 125, 24 wkts at 15.1, BB: 5/11 The Narre South all-rounder was a deserving winner of the Alan Wookey Medal as champion player of the Turf 1 season, with the exciting Lion proving his worth in the top-flight with some dominant performances that ultimately helped lead the club to an incredible finals appearance after being promoted from Turf 2. Ali belted a memorable 125 against North Dandenong early in the season, while just prior to Christmas, he put Hallam Kalora Park to the sword with 64 and 5/58, while he also snagged 5/11 in a match-winning performance against St Mary’s. David White (Buckley Ridges) - 695 runs at 53.5, HS: 101 It was always going to be a hard act to follow after one of the most dominant individual seasons in 2018/19 in his first season in the association, but the South African star was once again the most prolific Turf 1 batsman of the year, topping the competition in runs and providing his usual fireworks with some of the more entertaining and breathtaking knocks you’ll see. While White wasn’t at his absolute best towards the back-end of the season, the overseas pro led the club brilliantly through a rough patch before the grand final was cancelled, preventing the Bucks from a chance of back-to-back flags. Kaushalya Weeraratne (HSD) - 558 runs at 46.5, HS: 89, three wkts at 28 It was a fascinating season for the Heinz Southern Districts star, who was right up in the association in runs but couldn’t quite break through for the massive score despite showcasing immense consistency in the middle or-

der. Incredibly, Weeraratne made between 30 and 49 eight times throughout the season, and scored two half-centuries after Christmas, and only made one single digit score in the entire campaign. Jerome Jones (Buckley Ridges) - 429 runs at 53.6, HS: 97, 26 wkts at 18.8, BB: 5/45 What a recruit he’s been for Buckley Ridges. The West Indian all-rounder enjoyed an absolutely superb maiden season for the club, becoming a destructive middle-order batsman and outstanding spearhead with the ball, sending them down quickly at Park Oval. Jones often provided some huge individual performances, including a golden 97 against Berwick, and a highly-impressive 5/45 against North Dandenong. Ruwantha Kellepotha (Berwick) - 180 runs at 20, HS: 58*, 26 wkts at 17, BB: 4/8 The star all-rounder joined the Bears with a bit of expectation behind him after an extraordinary 2018/19 season with St Mary’s. While it took a bit of time for the leggie and middleorder batsman to settle in to his new surrounds, as the year wore on his value was evident with a number of excellent displays - particularly with the ball. Kellepotha had a tough start to the year with the bat but made some handy contributions, batting at four later in the season. Troy Aust (Buckley Ridges, wk) - 179 runs at 22.3, HS: 47, 17 catches, six stumpings The Buckley keeper and long-term leader enjoyed another incredibly consistent season and once again proved his skill with the gloves throughout the year and also his capacity to provide handy runs later in the innings for his club. He’s an unbelievably reliable cricketer who seemingly is still playing at an extremely high standard.

James Wilcock (Berwick) - 46 runs at 23, HS: 13*, 31 wkts at 11.7, BB: 5/14 The Turf 1 leading wicket-taker interestingly had a slow start to the season with just four wickets from his first four games, but since then his class went to another level, completely dominating the competition and proving himself to be the premier quick of the DDCA. His patch leading into finals - including 3/3 from eight overs against Hallam and 4/8 against St Mary’s - was frightening. Brendan Rose (Berwick) - 21 runs at 3.5, HS: 7, 24 wkts at 12.8, BB: 5/29 Rose came as a highly-prized recruit to the club from Premier outfit Casey-South Melbourne, and enjoyed a strong first season at the club in 2018/19, but this year, the quick’s class was on display in a scary new-ball combination with Wilcock - providing so much consistency with his lines, something he’s well renowned for. He snared 5/29 in Round 2 to set the scene for his season and seemed to always lift to another level against the top-sides, as shown by his 4/19 against Buckley Ridges in a run-soaked one-day clash. Jarryd Straker (Springvale South) - 20 runs at 5, HS: 7, 29 wkts at 12.1, BB: 4/22 Once again staking a claim as the top spinner of the association, the left-arm tweaker was once again absolutely superb for the Bloods with his consistency, control and ability to wear down an opposition on display. He rarely went an innings without a wicket, and took three or more wickets six times throughout the 2019/20 campaign, including four against Berwick, Buckley Ridges and a quality 3/10 against Narre South. He’s truly a big game player. 12th man: Greg Todd Buckley Ridges All statistics are based on the home-and-away season only. cranbournenews.starcommunity.com.au


SPORT

Searching for the solution By sports editor Russell Bennett The postponement, or even cancellation of competitions across Australia has thrown the community sporting world into chaos, with players, clubs and leagues wondering where to turn next in the uncertain times surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. Of course, there are much bigger things at play here than sport - the community's health and safety, first and foremost - but the future is an incredibly uncertain one for business and sporting clubs alike. Terry Dillon from TD Solutions (TDS) Sports Administration has developed a coronavirus club response package, which aims to educate and direct administrators on ways of minimising damage to clubs and their future prospects, and emerging from the crisis ready to re-engage with their core business. Dillon is working in conjunction with the AFL to provide direction, and the next steps to take for the 3500-plus community clubs around the country to best manage what AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan admitted is a once in a 100-year challenge. A guide instructing clubs as to how to best move forward will be released this week. TDS has developed a financial model (covering both pre and post coronavirus) to estimate the effects on both club revenue, and expenditure. The club response package includes a fourpart, 90-minute webinar - starting next Monday, 30 March. Part 1 covers shortfall - teaching leagues and clubs how to estimate their revenue shortfall, using the TDS revenue model. Part 2 covers expenditure, and how to tightly manage the cash flow impact and all discretionary spending. Part 3 covers prevention measures with a strong revenue focus with, importantly, the adoption of a new-age revenue model; and Part 4 covers budgeting - the importance of a

forecasting model and how to lay out a budget in this new era. The 90-minute webinar in the TDS package alerts club administrators to the practical steps they can take to both understand their current situation, and to formulate a plan to emerge with a healthy club once the pandemic has eased. Dillon is one of the most well-known names in community sport - particularly throughout West Gippsland - and is synonymous with his beloved Cora Lynn Football Netball Club. But his knowledge and expertise extends far beyond the bounds of the local community, and this is why sporting clubs all over Australia - even including some of Cora Lynn's famous rivals - have engaged his business' services. "The current situation is a threat to all clubs," he said. "You can either allow it to weaken your club, perhaps beyond repair, or you can work on a plan to emerge from the crisis with a club that is as healthy as possible and ready to play." TDS brings Dillon's lifetime's work - including working for 17 years at AFL clubs including Collingwood (as chief financial officer under president Eddie McGuire), Hawthorn (as chief operating officer under Ian Dicker and Jeff Kennett, and acting chief executive), and St Kilda (as chief operating officer) - to the fore to help those running local sporting clubs. In his book, 'How Ordinary People Create Extraordinary Clubs', Dillon identified that the major challenges for clubs - regardless of the sport - fall into the same five categories: identifying and retaining good leaders, using strong reporting processes, using an effective and relevant revenue model, finding and retaining volunteers, and planning for the future. Without expertise in these key areas, he says that even committees and administrators with the best of intentions will struggle to run their clubs successfully.

"I've always been surprised that to coach a team, in nearly all sports around the country, you need to have gained a minimum education requirement," he said. "Yet, if you want to run the whole club, you need no qualification whatsoever - nothing, zip, zero. "To avoid catastrophe in clubland, there has to be a circuit breaker, something that provides not just hope and encouragement, but

real, practical support and workable solutions for clubs and their volunteer administrators in what is the most difficult landscape ever experienced by our country."
