Anger rises over units By Charlene Macaulay Tarneit residents fighting a proposal for 13 double-storey units in their estate have been shocked to discover plans for 26 more units on a neighbouring block. More than 110 objections have been lodged with Wyndham council over a developer’s plans to build 13, double-storey units on a vacant block at 1 Onyx Way in Tarneit’s Ridge estate. Objectors voiced their concerns at a recent town planning meeting, with the matter to be decided at an upcoming council meeting. Now residents have a new battle on their hands, with a planning application for 26 units proposed for 3 Onyx Way.

All smiles for Ruby’s 100th

Our little community … is going to be ruined

’’

The new application had received 17 objections at the time Star Weekly went to print, meaning it will now be taken before a town planning meeting and the matter eventually decided at a council meeting. Resident Melanie said that if both planning applications were approved, Ridge estate residents would have to live in close proximity to 39 units. “Thirty-nine units in a confined space without provision for adequate parking is going to be the downfall of the surrounding estates,” she said. “There simply isn’t enough room in the surrounding streets for residents to park, let alone visitors. “The high concentration of units locally has already had a negative impact on surrounding homes, with traffic, rubbish, cars parked on nature strips, shopping trolleys dumped. “Our little community, where there is an abundance of vacant land just beyond Tarneit, is going to be ruined and we are deeply concerned about this potentially going ahead.” Melanie said she also had concerns that approval of these two developments would set a precedent for other units to be built in the estate. Another resident, Kylie, told Star Weekly earlier this year: “Many of our blocks are 500 square metres-plus and we’ve bought [for] the very reason of having a bit of space around us – not these units/houses built on top of one another when there is plenty of land around to do that elsewhere.”

Meet Werribee’s newest centenarian. Ruby McLachlan, who celebrated her 100th birthday on Monday, still has a twinkle in her eye and a spring in her step. Mrs McLachlan, who lives at Bapcare Wyndham Lodge, was born in Dundee, Scotland, the eldest of six children. As a young girl, she had to step up and play a leading role at home after her mother was widowed twice at a young age. “She was left with six of us, and some of that was left on my shoulders,” Mrs McLachlan said. “I was 11 and a half, and she’d depend on me. “When I think back, it was a big responsibility. I used to always say to my mother, ‘I’m not having six children!’ “Sometimes, when I go to bed at night, I look up and I say, ‘Are you looking after me for what I’d done when I was young?’ ” Mrs McLachlan met her husband, Andrew, through her uncle. She and Andrew would go out dancing together. “He was a very good man,” she said. “He couldn’t dance though!” They moved to Australia in 1960 because of Andrew’s work as an engineer. They were married for 66 years before Andrew passed away, aged 91. Mrs McLachlan has one daughter and two grandchildren. She celebrated her 100th birthday with a party among family and friends. Mrs McLachlan said she was thrilled to have received a birthday card from the Queen congratulating her on the milestone. “What’s the secret [to making it to 100]? I wish I knew myself! It’s up to God, it’s a blessing,” she said. Charlene Macaulay

Arsonists bid to appeal rejected By Alesha Capone and Ewen McRae An arsonist who caused more than 431,000 square metres of grassland in Melbourne’s north and west to go up in flames, has been denied permission to appeal his prison sentence. Mark Ganon, 41, faced the Supreme Court earlier this month requesting the right to appeal. The court heard that between January 4 to 14 last year, Ganon started between 20 to 30 fires. Within the first five days of his offending, Ganon lit fires in Mount Ridley, Donnybrook, Keilor North, Calder Park and Sunshine West.

On January 10, he lit five fires in Keilor, Laverton North and Sunshine West. The blaze in Laverton North burned 161,874 square metres of grassland. On January 13, Ganon lit fires in Sunshine West and Keilor Downs that burned more than 60,000 square metres of grassland. The next day, he started fires in Sunshine West, Cairnlea and Keilor Downs. Police later observed Ganon driving a vehicle with stolen registration plates. CCTV footage had identified a similar vehicle as being involved in the fires. Gannon was arrested on January 16.

He faced the County Court last year, where he pleaded guilty to six charges of intentionally causing a bushfire, possessing a drug of dependence, handling stolen goods, committing an indictable offence while on bail, resisting an emergency worker, unlicensed driving and using an unregistered motor vehicle. In September last year, he was sentenced to five years in prison, with a non-parole period of three years and four months. During the request to appeal the sentence the Supreme Court heard Ganon had a number of prior convictions dating back to 1993, but

Making a case for Afro pride

Capital works borrowings at $70 million

These two Tarneit Senior College students are keen to embrace their cultural heritage – not apologise for it. Fed up with racism directed at African young people, year 12 students Jumess Tshishimbi and Pasi Pesa started the AfroFever program last term at their school to celebrate African culture, including traditional dance performances in African costumes during lunch breaks. Their plans for the future include an African youth festival where young people can sing, dance and showcase the African talent. “We created this program because we wanted to empower African youth and also have people see the inside of our culture,” Jumess said. Referring to the crimes involving African young people that dominated headlines earlier this year, she said: “We want to remind one another of our African morals, because we’re not raised like this.” Pasi added: “Other people choose to do the wrong thing … it overshadows what other people are doing, and that’s what we’re trying to change. “I’ll walk into a Woolies or Coles, and I will have someone following me, thinking that I’m going to do something wrong. We want to stand against those stereotypes.” The two young women, who both plan on becoming police officers, said they’ve felt that the wrong actions of a small minority had overshadowed the talents and strenghs of many striving to do their very best. “We want to broadcast the beauty and diversity in the African community, as it is not shown enough in general society,” Pasi said.

Wyndham council has amassed a $70 million debt to fund capital works projects across the city. Earlier this month, the council voted to borrow $15 million over a 10-year fixed-interest bond to be issued through the Local Government Funding Vehicle (LGFV), a public sector short-term financing program that allows Victorian councils to aggregate their borrowings. The borrowing model is considered to be the best-practice alternative to bank loans because it gives councils access to savings on interest. It’s the third time Wyndham council has borrowed money through the LGFV. It took out $40 million in November, 2014 (which will mature in 2021), and a further $15 million in June, 2016 (maturing 2026). The average interest rate on the current $55 million borrowed is 4.31 per cent. Councillor Kim McAliney said she fully backed the move. “The borrowing will fund the council’s capital works program, including projects that will be delivered under the Wyndham West DCP (Development Contribution Plan),” Cr McAliney said. The borrowing follows the release of council’s draft 2018-19 budget, which includes a $145.9 million capital works program, of which $37.1 million has been allocated to roads.

this was the first time he had been convicted of arson-related offences. In responding to Ganon’s appeal, Supreme Court Justices David Beach and Phillip Priest said that although no one was injured as a result of Ganon’s actions, some of the fires he started burned close to residential properties and caused traffic delays on freeways. “The applicant’s complaints are totally devoid of merit,” they said. “His offending involved multiple attempts to light multiple fires.” They said that the sentence was not manifestly excessive, and that a longer sentence could easily be argued.

Wyndham tourism push By Charlene Macaulay More hotels across Wyndham could be on the horizon as the council seeks to capitalise on Avalon Airport starting international services. Wyndham council’s tourism and major events portfolio holder, John Gibbons, said the region has worked hard in recent years to position itself as an events capital, playing host to events such as the State Rose and Garden Show, the Fromage a Trois Cheese Festival, Park Lounge, Point Cook Lunar New Year Festival, the Wyndham Art Prize and Werribee’s pop-up park.

‘‘

We’re open for business, we’re an events city

’’

- John Gibbons

Next up will be the annual Winter Street Festival on June 29, which will encourage locals to come out of hibernation and enjoy the best Werribee’s CBD has to offer, including a big inflatable installation at Station Place. Construction of Avalon’s international terminal has officially begun, with the project receiving $20 million in the federal budget. “With Air Asia coming in [to Avalon Airport], the sky’s the limit for Werribee,� Cr Gibbons said. As reported by Star Weekly, the InterContinental Hotels Group PLC will open a 150-room Holiday Inn as part of the council’s 12-storey catalyst development slated for a parcel of land on the corner of Synnot Street and Duncans Road. But Cr Gibbons believes Wyndham will “need a few more hotels� to accommodate the expected boost in tourism that the

Councillor John Gibbons says Wyndham is open for business. (Supplied)

international terminal is likely to provide. He said the council was also advocating for state funding to add a K Road interchange along the Princes Freeway. “We want people to stay here rather than jump on a bus and go all the way to the city. We’re open for business, we’re an events city.�

The council’s economic growth and visitor economy strategy stated that visitation growth to the area has almost doubled (up 98 per cent) in the Wyndham municipality between 2008 and 2016, with 46 per cent of visitors coming to Wyndham to see friends and relatives.

Ex cop loses parking appeal A former traffic cop who lost a parking dispute with Wyndham council has been ordered to pay the council’s legal fees. Wyndham Vale resident Graeme Lee took the council to Werribee Magistrates Court recently over two parking fines he received last year for parking along the dividing strip across from his Ballan Road property. The initial fine was waived after Mr Lee argued that he parked along the shoulder of a road, not a dividing strip, which was not an offence. He was shocked to receive a second fine, which was later downgraded to an official warning. Instead of accepting the warning, Mr Lee opted to take the matter to court to settle the dispute. But the magistrate upheld the second fine and also ordered Mr Lee to pay the council’s court costs of $800. Mr Lee branded the ruling ridiculous. “You can park on the shoulder of the road on Ballan Road, but you can’t park on the shoulder of the service road [of Ballan Road],� he said. Mr Lee said he would not appeal. Wyndham council city operations director Stephen Thorpe said it was unfortunate the matter ended up in court. “On multiple occasions council offered Mr Lee the option of resolving the matter by paying the original infringement amount of $93, but he chose to proceed to court,� Mr Thorpe said.

Crims keep busy at stations By Charlene Macaulay More than 1500 offences have been reported at Wyndham train stations and train station carparks in the past five years, with the bulk of crimes happening at Werribee. Crime Statistics Agency data revealed a total of 603 offences were reported in and around Werribee train station, including 270 instances of theft and property damage, 157 public order and security offences and 63 assaults between

January 1, 2013, and December 31, 2017. There was also 397 offences reported at Hoppers Crossing train station and the station carpark, 265 offences at Williams Landing, 173 at Tarneit and 129 at Wyndham Vale. Theft, property damage and public order and security offences were the most common crimes reported for each station. Meanwhile, Wyndham police have cautioned commuters to keep anything of value hidden from view and, be alert in and around train

stations and bus stops, and have one ear free at all times when using headphones following a slight increase in mobile phones and bicycles thefts from transport hubs. Acting Senior Sergeant Jason Forster told Star Weekly that in particular, there had been an increase in mobile phone thefts at bus stops around Point Cook, and bike thefts from Williams Landing train station. Offenders are running off with phones after asking victims if they can borrow it to make a call.

“We haven’t seen a large number of phone thefts, but it is one of the areas that Victoria Police wish to impact on,” Acting Senior Sergeant Forster said. “For that to occur we need to work with our community ensuring they be aware of their surroundings and contact triple-0 to report any suspicious behaviour.” Acting Senior Sergeant Forster also called on cyclists to use a sturdy lock when leaving bikes at train stations.

On base for top action The Werribee Softball Association is polishing its diamonds and battering up for a mammoth long weekend of competition. Association president Trevor Murphy said the organisation was thrilled about hosting this year’s Victorian Masters Softball Championships, which will be run across the Queen’s Birthday weekend of June 9-11. About 52 teams from all over Victoria – and some from interstate – will descend on Presidents Park for the tournament starring players aged 35 and over. The sport is particularly popular among women, with female teams comprising about 80 per cent of the competition. Mr Murphy said Wyndham council had top-dressed five of the diamonds, repaired five in-fields and fixed irrigation to make the facility competition-ready. Association registrar Angela Broadbent added: “We’ll be using all of our 11 diamonds. It’s a huge job to have the grounds up to a standard when all the teams descend on the

park. “It’s pretty exciting. For quite some time now, [the competition’s been held] in rural areas. To get the opportunity to host the masters is a huge coup for our association.” Mr Murphy said the masters championships was one of two major tournaments being held at Presidents Park this year, with the Werribee association also hosting the Werribee Memorial Shield in mid-September.

Council wrath for extra pokies By Charlene Macaulay Wyndham council has slammed a Victorian Commission for Gambling and Regulation (VCGLR) decision to allow an extra 10 poker machines at The Tigers Clubhouse. Werribee Football Club, which runs the Old Geelong Road venue, has been successful in its application for an increase in poker machines from 75 to 85, arguing that revenue generated by the additional machines would help to ensure the continued viability of the club. The new machines form part of a $1.69

million redevelopment proposed for the venue, with plans lodged through Wyndham council earlier this month. In handing down its decision earlier this month, the VCGLR has ordered Werribee Football Club to allocate $25,000 to Wyndham not-for-profit community groups and sports organisations for each year the extra machines operate. This is on top of an annual $75,000 paid out to Wyndham community groups and sports clubs. Councillor Josh Gilligan, who chairs the council’s gambling reference advisory group,

‘‘

We cannot afford to have more of these machines

’’

- Josh Gilligan

said the commission’s decision would harm the local community. “In the 2016-17 financial year alone, our community lost $97 million on pokies,” Cr Gilligan said. “That’s $275,000 being funnelled out of our community every single day.

“Wyndham is ranked eighth out of 70 local government areas for electronic gaming machine losses in Victoria. The VCGLR’s own figures also show that gambling losses by Wyndham adults are increasing almost eight times faster than the Victorian average. “We cannot afford to have more of these machines in our municipality, which is exactly why council is in the process of developing the Wyndham Gambling Harm Minimisation Policy and Action Plan.” The Werribee Football Club did not respond to requests for comment by deadline.

Public puts Park on top It’s an accolade worth a toast or two – Werribee’s The Park Hotel has been named Time Out’s 2018 Most Loved Local Pub in Melbourne as voted by the public. Nick Christou and his wife Connie said they were stoked, surprised and overwhelmed by the honour. “That’s a big achievement for us and the staff, it’s a massive accomplishment to be voted by the public,” Mrs Christou said. When the pub opened six years ago in a three-way partnership between Mr Christou and two other investors, it’s sophisticated decor and extensive craft beer menu was unlike anything that Werribee had seen. About three years in, Nick bought his partners out and Connie joined the team. Today, it’s truly a family business, with the couple’s son James working as front-of-house manager. “Timing is everything, and the timing was

right. I think the population was 148,000 at the time and we sort of thought, here’s an opportunity, it’s the right space and the right location. We wanted to come up with a unique offering that was different to the area, but we weren’t reinventing the wheel either,” Mr Christou said. And there’s more to come. A wood fire pizza oven and another functions space are both in development for the pub, and the Christous are heading over to the US next month on a “study tour” to check out venues in New York, San Francisco and LA. “A lot of it is just going to different breweries and different distilleries and seeing what’s going on in the industry and who’s doing what, and then we’ll come back with a fresh bag full of ideas. We’re always looking to grow,” Mr Christou said. Charlene Macaulay

But ugly parenting is not confined to sport, it is everywhere – and so is good parenting, in case anyone wants to look. Not every member of the younger generation is a spoilt brat with no manners, no work ethic and no prospects who believes their future should be gift-wrapped and handed to them. It is far too easy to bundle them all up in the one basket and stamp their papers “one size fits all”. The media has a tendency to fuel this fire because this is an issue that sells papers and gets radio talkback lines ringing off the hook.

nothing to do with age. In fact, the innocence of youth and the experience of age are often the best conduits for clear, rational, impartial thinking and ideas. This is the reason these generations tend to gravitate towards each other. Stereotyping people is unfair, and we in the west know that only too well. We are not all moccasin-wearing bogans who smoke and drink and collect the dole. In the same way, all politicians are not crooked and not all Collingwood fans have teeth missing, the entire younger generation is not a waste of space. They will tackle the future in a different way to us, but it is theirs to embrace. They communicate in different ways and that might not be a bad thing, either. They are breaking down a lot of barriers and taboos we thought impossible, and admitting their own flaws, which we found uncomfortable. We didn’t get everything right and neither will they – we are all human, after all. ■

Salute to supervisors “They really are marvellous kids – you get sad when they grow up and leave,” Ms Smith said. “I used to think people weren’t taking any notice of me, but they must be if I’ve been nominated for this award,” Ms Norris said. “If I ever miss a day, the kids all tell me off because they didn’t see me.” George Reitter, who supervises a crossing near Alamanda K-9 College, and Pam Pepi, who supervises a crossing near Westgrove Primary School, have also been nominated.

This year 12 student has a passion for helping others and a drive to do more. Thomas Carr College’s Kerry Wang was recognised for her contribution to the community, volunteering and leadership earlier this month when she received a Wyndham council mayoral youth award. The 17-year-old has volunteered in leadership positions within Thomas Carr College including as social justice captain, the student representative council, college ambassador, president of the Thomas Carr College Vinnies conference and liturgy captain. Last year, she acted as an interpreter during sister school summer camps and she tutors primary school pupils, especially those from refugee backgrounds.

Learning the ropes in a new country is something Kerry can relate to, after she came to Australia from China in 2010. To top it off, Kerry also volunteers at Tarneit library and is studying Italian at Melbourne University on an extension program. She hopes to study a bachelor of arts next year, with a view of returning to Thomas Carr as a teacher one day. Kerry said had been shocked to learn about the mayoral youth award, and believes there should also be an award for parents. “I feel that I couldn’t achieve all this, and participate without the support of my parents, especially my mum.” Charlene Macaulay

Fight for ‘best friend’ Byy Alesha Capone Western suburbs residentt Danielle describes W her dogg Lacey as a “life saver�. Yet Danielle regularly ly conffronts resistance to the presence of her official assistance dogg and companion. In 2005, Danielle survived a hit-and-run after another motorist ran into her vehicle on Punt Road. The driver of the other car, which was stolen and unregistered, was never found byy police. As a result off the accident, Danielle has been dealingg with spinal inj in uries and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome rome T Ty pe 1 (CRPS), a degenerative neurological condition that can cause severe pain throughout the body. y Since 2014, she has also been diagnosed with lupus, postural orthostatic tachycardia y syndrome and complex post traumatic stress disorder. Daniellee says sa manyy people do not believe say that Lacey, y a 12-year-old zuchon, is her official assistance dog. Although she has letters from f her doctor stating Lacey is an assistance animal who can accompany Danielle anywhere under the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act (except for planes, without certification), she has found that some people are openly hostile. Danielle recently ly received a settlement through the Victorian Equal Opportunityy and Human Rights Commission after a shopping centre store would not let her take Lacey inside. Danielle said that a week later a staff member and customer at a Werribee cafe confronted her about Laceyy and “her legitimacyy in being with me�. “I have come to realise, through conversations with other individuals diagnosed with CRPS

Budget gets frostyy response Wyndham council and Lalor MP W Joanne R Ryan have slammed the federal government’s budget ffor 2018-19. W ndham deputyy mayor Walter Wy Villagonzalo, said Melbourne’s west – particularly Wyndham – had been “neglected� in the budget, which was released last week. “The Turnbull government has made a big deal of its intention to spend $7.8 billion on roads and railway wa lines in Victoria, but not one cent off this will be invested in W Wyndham,� he said. He said Wyndham required fun f ding ffor a western interstate freig f ht terminal, planning ffor new Regional Rail Link stations, a feasibilityy study for the Outer Metropolitan Ring Road and modernised water supplyy for Werribee South farmers. Mss R Ryan told Parliament of her disappointment in “a $270 million cut to TAFE� and a lackk of plans to improve housing affor ff dability. She said that the budget failed “dramatically on infrastructure f ffor Victoria�. “Despite the $5 billion promised for the airport-to-cityy rail link, there is only $250 million to be spent in the next four years,� she said. The federal government claims the 2018-19 budget will create more jobs, provide tax relieff and guarantee essential services. In a statement, the government said its $75 billion 10-year infrastructure plan would “help bust congestion in our cities�. Alesha Capone

Mayoral Column The waste and recycling tour I mentioned last week continues. Our recent tour of the Leeds Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility was inspiring. Their emissions are mainly water and the rest of the gases and ash from incineration are captured and treated. Even the bottom ash from the incinerator is used for road building. I was also given a tour by a Councillor of the North Yorkshire County Council of the Allerton Waste Recovery Park - one of the UK’s newest and most advanced waste treatment facilities. It combines a range of technologies to reduce household waste to landfill by 90% and generates enough energy to power 40,000 homes. Unlike the other sites visited so far, the Ecoparque de Toledo in Spain does not send residual waste to thermal treatment. It is placed in the adjacent landfill after recovery of materials, reducing waste to landfill by 60%. The landfill produces 4MW of electricity. In a pilot process they’re undertaking, 3,000 tonnes of film plastic is being used to create an alternative fuel. This trip is uncovering some of the honest truths about alternatives for waste and landfills. I’m confident residents will benefit from the information we’re gathering. Regards, Peter Maynard

Team Bob bowled over By Alesha Capone It’s time to go barefoot bowling to help raise funds for Team Uncle Bob. The Werribee Bowls Club will host a special event later this month, to help the family of Rob ‘Bob’ Tottle in their efforts to fundraise for research into Motor Neurone Disease (MND). In March last year, lifelong Werribee resident Rob was diagnosed with MND. Rob’s daughter, Chera Tottle, said her father was diagnosed with the illness after he retired from almost 40 years of service in the MFB. Ms Tottle said there was no cure for MND, an illness in which nerve cells fail to work normally, causing the degeneration of muscles which help people to move, speak and swallow. She said that her mother Lyn was now Rob’s full-time carer, and that MND Victoria had given them an electrical wheelchair for Rob – a formerly very active man – to use. “This man who was so strong and could just about build anything, and did for just about everyone, could no longer walk or pick up his grandchildren,” she said. Ms Tottle said her father had been asked to donate a tissue sample for research being conducted by Neale Daniher’s foundation, into finding a cure for MND. She said as a result, her family – including herself and brother Ashley, her uncle Marty and cousin Gerard – had decided to join Daniher’s Drive as Team Uncle Bob. The annual driving event, which will be held in October this year, raises funds for the Fight MND organisation. Ms Tottle said they hoped to raise $5000 and have already raised more than $2670 thanks to donations and a fundraising barbecue at Snap Fitness in Werribee. Rob’s former workplace, MFB station number 47

Mail theft warning in Point Cook By Alesha Capone and Charlene Macaulay

Fairy’s tales weave magic

(Damjan Janevski)

Point Cook residents are being urged to report mail theft to the police after opened postal items were found dumped in Alamanda estate. Neighbourhood Watch of Point Cook Central issued a warning earlier this month to alert households. The group said that opened mail had been found dumped in Alamanda Boulevard, Reef Walk and Royal Circuit. It said people had been seen “checking out” post boxes in the Waterhaven Boulevard area during the early morning hours. Similar activity has been reported in the Innisfail estate. Neighbourhood Watch advised residents to lock their mailboxes to help prevent theft. Wyndham Police Inspector Martin Allison said reports of dumped mail and postal theft were “not uncommon” in Wyndham. He encouraged residents to contact police to report incidents of mail theft. In July last year, Wyndham police found 267 stolen letters and four credit cards in the back of a car they had intercepted. The mail was addressed to properties in Werribee, Hoppers Crossing and Point Cook. A 28-year-old Werribee man was charged with theft, handling stolen goods and possessing drugs. In August last year, police arrested another man and four women after executing a warrant at a Werribee house. Investigators said they found a large amount of mail, believed to have been stolen from letterboxes in the area, at the address. Anyone with information about mail theft should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

A touch of magic has arrived at the Quantin Binnah Community Centre. The Werribee centre is hosting Fairy Tales storytimes every Friday. The sessions, aimed at children aged from two to five years, feature the centre’s community development officer and “fairy” storyteller Rebecca Tucker. The Fairy Tales sessions include activities for the children and morning tea with fairy bread, scones, jam and cream. Ms Tucker (pictured) said the storytime program had been designed to encourage a love of literacy and to help prepare children for school, in addition to giving parents the chance to socialise, network and build support. She said the 9.30-10.30am sessions helped promote the centre’s cafe, Cafe QB, as a shared community space. The Quantin Binnah Community Centre is located at 61 Thames Boulevard, Werribee.

A corner cafe with a home vibe A generous dose of Italian hospitality has turned a Werribee cafe into a coffee hot spot. The South Corner, which will celebrate its first year in business next month, is a big hit with locals. Run by Werribee’s Fab Fazzolari and his wife, Fiona, the cafe pays homage to the building’s former life as a corner milk bar through a similar front counter and other little touches. Mr Fazzolari says hospitality runs in his blood, with his parents having run restaurants and cafes in Italy and Melbourne’s CBD for more than five decades.

“When you walk through the door, it’s like you’re walking into our house – we’re always going to greet you, no matter how busy it is,” he said. “I make a point to know people’s names and coffee orders. If people are lined up, I’ll just yell out ‘are you having the usual?’ and by the time they go up and make the transaction, their coffee is done.” The South Corner has just received planning approval to expand with a street-view alfresco area that can be open and closed to the elements depending on the weather.

The Fazzolaris have nominated The South Corner for the new and emerging category in the Wyndham Business Awards after they discovered they had been receiving votes from happy customers in the people’s choice category. Star Weekly is a media partner of the Wyndham Business Awards. Entries and nominations are open until June 8. For more information and to enter, visit wyndham.vic.gov.au/businessawards

An ebm-papst spokeswoman said the expansion would help strengthen the business by providing more services. “The dedicated warranty area will allow us to support our customers’ concerns and claims by being able to locally analyse, repair and rework products. The extension of the R&D facilities will continue to support locally designed and manufactured products for new and existing markets through customised product solutions. “We are hoping that this will help us to achieve our goal of an increase in revenue of at least 70 per cent within the next five years.” The business was named 2015 Wyndham Business of the Year and in 2016 was inducted into the Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame. The company employs 41 people across Australia and New Zealand. Charlene Macaulay

Kool honour in Tarneit Less than a year after it rose from the ashes of a devastating fire, Kool Kidz Tarneit has been nominated for two national awards. On June 5 last year, the centre was destroyed when a car, which was on fire, crashed into it during the early hours of the morning. The re-built centre, which opened in February this year, has been named a finalist in two categories of the Australian Early Education and Care Awards. The centre is a finalist in the Service of the Year section and the centre owner Samantha Johnson is a Director of the Year finalist. “All the educators and families are very excited,” Mrs Johnson said. “I am incredibly proud that the whole team has been recognised for the hard work they have put in over the past

year. My team put the children’s and families needs above their own after the fire … in times where they were feeling down and uncertain about their future, they were consistent, supportive and loving to all the families and children.” Mrs Johnston, who has worked in education for 16 years, said she loved walking into Kool Kidz Tarneit every day and feeling she was “part of a family”. The state winners of the Australian Early Education and Care Awards will be announced on May 23 and the national winners on June 15. See earlyeducationandcareawards.com.au for details. Alesha Capone

Pay error has school in hot water By Alesha Capone A swimming school franchise business that operates across Melbourne, including in the western suburbs, has apologised for underpaying 1308 staff. Paul Sadler Swimland Pty Ltd has issued a public notice saying it has agreed to be supervised by the Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) for two years.

The notice says the swimming school franchisees had contravened the Fair Work Act from July, 2010, to March, 2016. They included those in Bacchus Marsh, Braybrook, Essendon, Hoppers Crossing and Melton, and USAust Management Services Pty Ltd, trading as Paul Sadler Swimland Taylors Lakes Pty Ltd. The schools failed to pay the minimum wages to adult and junior employees and minimum

rates set out in enterprise agreements. The workers were underpaid a combined total of more than $1.42 million. As a result, the franchisees have committed to an enforceable agreement with the FWO, which will include a future audit to ensure they are complying with all federal workplace laws. Paul Sadler Swimland Pty Ltd will donate $25,000 to the Smith Family and $25,000 to Western Chances.

In a statement, the company said that in late 2015, it was made aware of an error with staff payments. The business conducted an audit of its manual payroll systems and confirmed that a number of employees had been “unintentionally underpaid”. The statement said that the company had worked throughout 2016 to ensure employees were repaid any money owed to them and had also written to all former employees who were owed money.

Leaving a lasting legacy When Mary Brand retired at the end of last year, she decided to dedicate her time to helping those who had helped her family in the past. The 62-year-old Werribee resident became a volunteer for Legacy, which supports more than 80,000 widows and families of ex-servicemen around Australia. It was a natural fit for Mrs Brand, whose family struggled when her dad returned after serving with the Army during World War II and was “very disturbed”. “Mum was what they would now call a virtual widow. It was a hard life growing up,” Mrs Brand said. “I wanted to help the people who had given help to mum over the years. I wanted to help the widows and the families. “I knew a little bit about what they did through mum, but I had no idea of the range, and how much they helped families – with children and education. It’s a wonderful organisation.” Mrs Brand has used her personal experience to bond with the Burnside War Widows group,

who she looks after in her role as legatee. She also volunteers with Werribee RSL, where she does nursing home visits with their welfare officer. Mrs Brand is one of many volunteers who will be recognised later this month to mark National Volunteer Week, which runs between May 21-27. For more information about Legacy, or to become a volunteer, call 8626 0500. Charlene Macaulay

Jobs program makes inroads A state government jobs initiative has proved a roaring success for both Werribee’s Open Range Zoo and long-term job-seekers. About 850 job-seekers across the western suburbs, including Sudanese migrants Charity, Margaret, Rieta and Salwa, have gained secure employment as part of the Jobs Victoria program. The four women have secured jobs in

customer service and in the kitchen at Werribee Open Range Zoo after the Westgate Community Initiatives Group and Wyndham Community and Education Centre helped fix up their resumes and mentored them as part of the program. Since arriving in Australia in 2002, Charity had only been able to secure intermittent work to support herself and her daughter, despite

having completed tourism qualifications. She is now in customer service, alongside Margaret, who has a diploma in hospitality but had also struggled to find work. Rieta and Salwa, who work as kitchen hands at the zoo, have gained further qualifications since starting work. Werribee MP Tim Pallas said the Westgate Community Initiative Group and Wyndham

Community and Education Centre have been instrumental in the success of the program, helping long-term job-seekers find stable work. Employment minister Ben Carroll added: “Unlike national jobs programs, which have a one size fits all approach, Jobs Victoria is delivering tailored assistance to job-seekers and is helping employers to find the workers they need.�

Reconciliation Week events Wyndham council will host several events during Reconciliation Week, which will run from Sunday, May 27 to Sunday, June 3. Co-chair of Wyndham City’s Reconciliation Advisory Committee, Cr Henry Barlow, said that on the first Sunday, a free community tree planting would be held on the banks of the Werribee River from 10am to midday. On June 2, a free bush tucker session will be held at the Plaza Library in Werribee from 11am to midday, to teach participants about traditional food. Cr Barlow said residents were also invited to attend thelibrary on Thursday May 31 from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, to hear from Rowena Price as she shares her story of discovering her hidden Aboriginal heritage. Performer Ian Michael will also present his show HART at the Wyndham Cultural Centre on Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2. Bookings are required for all of the events, see wyndham.vic.gov.au for details.

MY WYNDHAM Simon Spiteri has spent his life in the western suburbs, starting out in Brimbank before moving to Hoppers Crossing and then Point Cook. The 46-year-old business owner and father of two talks to Charlene Macaulay about his work, family and hobbies.

I originally came from West Sunshine, then Hoppers Crossing. We’ve lived in Point Cook for the past 20 years. It was either move to Caroline Springs or Point Cook, and my wife won! It’s close to the city, close to the beach, I like it. You would have been one of the first residents in Point Cook, what was that like? Not the first, but when we moved to Point Cook Gardens, it was all paddock and we’ve seen it grow from there. How did you and your wife Anyeta meet? I met her through another friend ‌ and we took off from there. She wanted to get married in February and she was still 17, so we had to go to court and get consent from the judge. That was 25 years ago – it’s gone quick. We’ve got a son, he’s 19, and a daughter, she’s 17. You and your wife run GJ Gardner Homes in Point Cook. How do the two of you work together?

We’ve been running this for four years now. It’s a bit of a struggle (laughs), but we work as a team. Sometimes you have your ups, sometimes you have your downs, as with any relationship. But the major thing is you talk about it and you come out on the other side laughing. What are your hobbies outside of work? I like motorbike riding, I like to play sports – a bit of soccer. My daughter’s heavily involved in taekwondo, she tried out for worlds two years ago and placed 13th, which was a big improvement, and now she’s trying again this year. What’s your favourite Wyndham restaurant or coffee haunt? We love to go to Vivere at Point Cook Town Centre, Rendeavous. If there was something you could change about Wyndham, what would it be?

(Damjan Janevski)

What’s your connection to Wyndham?

The roads. They’re just building too much – which is good for us – but they need to keep up with the infrastructure of the roads.

An application has been lodged with the Board of Works for a planning permit for a shopping centre almost the size of Chadstone at the corner of Derrimut and Heaths road, Hoppers Crossing. The notice has been sent to Werribee Shire Council whose attitude will largely determine the Boards of Works attitude to the application.

An 18-year-old teenager suffering from cerebral palsy was robbed of his only entertainment when thieves broke into his parent’s Werribee house, and stole the television, video recorder and cassette deck, last Sunday week. David Hogendorn who physically resembles a six-year-old child but cannot walk, sit up by himself or speak, has no other entertainment outlet available to him because of his severe disability.

CSR, developers of the proposed Wyndham toxic waste facility, has bowed to public pressure and changed its plans. Journalists at a closed briefing in Melbourne last week were told CSR would operate the Wests Road plant as a storage facility for toxic waste rather than a landfill for disposal.

More than 1200 people have already signed a petition launched last week against the proposed African-style theme park at Werribee Open Range Zoo. The petition forms part of a campaign by Friends of the Zoos, which plans to fight plans for the $220 million African Safari World development by Village Roadshow.

Give and gain at Manor Court With origins in the 1970s, Manor Court was built from the ground up by residents with the help of Rotary to support aging residents. Today it is known for being a caring, well-run, not-for-profit aged care facility that has a focus on loads of activities for residents, great staff and great food - just ask anyone that calls it home. Managing director Ross Smith says in the past, many retirees would routinely offer their time to their community, almost as a matter of course. “Today, things have changed, so we thought we’d reach out to the community,” he says. “We’d love locals to come by and see what a great place we have built up over the years and what a great mutual benefit can be gained by volunteering at Manor Court.” “It’s a lot of fun and you can become just as much a part of our extended community as the residents.” “By becoming a volunteer, you’ll be making a valuable contribution to society, but you may also be surprised at how much you’ll receive in return. Many Manor Court volunteers have gained a sense of achievement, lasting memories and positive connections within our caring communities.” Ross says his latest recruit is a young mother with two children under two. “She comes in once a week and just chats with residents and has a cup of tea and a biscuit. The kids run around, just being kids. The residents are always thrilled to have the kids come in, laughing and giggling,” he says. “She has been an invaluable contributor for our

Volunteer Darren plays Cribbage with resident Jack. (Supplied)

residents’ wellbeing and all she’s doing is sitting around in our comfy common area, having a chat. “Our point-of-difference has always been our activity and lifestyle programs. Whether it is going for a walk, or having someone to just sit and talk to, for a lonely resident, it can really make their whole week. “There’s no minimum amount of time to commit to either. Whether you can do an hour a

week, half a day or a whole day, it doesn’t matter. It is all greatly appreciated by our residents who we are deeply committed to. “We want them to be happy and healthy. As we all know, social interaction is so, so important.” So whether you love to play Scrabble, like to talk politics, are an avid gardener, knitter or just like to take a stroll, your help will always be of use. “If you play an instrument, or have a skill to

share, that is of course great too, but at the end of the day, it is a social life that we really want to foster,” Ross says. “There’s no magic button to push, it’s just about care and community.” Manor Court Werribee Aged Care, 5 Hogan Grove Werribee.

This is designed to identify any short-cut habits drivers may have adopted over the years of driving.” Participants also get a free, confidential once-over of their vehicles and advice from professionals such as VicRoads roadworthy officers about how to keep their cars in roadworthy condition. As well, each participant receives: • Specialist advice on taking care of tyres from a VicRoads tyre expert. • Updates on health, medicines and driving, and newer road rules. • Opportunities to ask question of the police road law specialists – the Highway Patrol. • A free Senior Drivers Expo pack that includes a reusable carry bag, copies of Senior Drivers Handbook and Driving in Victoria: Rules & Responsibilities, plus other relevant information. This is an opportunity to have a free and confidential check on your driving technique and get vehicle safety information and support to drive away with confidence. When: Saturday, June 16, 2018. Where: Central Park Community Centre, 80 Lonsdale Circuit, Hoppers Crossing. Time: 9.45am-2.30pm. Bring: Your car, notebook, pen. Registration required. Inquiries: Lynette 9742 7534.

SPORT Newport rider joins criterium greats staying together. With a lap and three-quarters to go, I attacked … Adam Murchie was up the road. I came past him as hard as I could and then I did the last lap on my own “It’s a short circuit and I was happy with the gap that I had, so I just kept focused and powered through the corners … I saw I had the gap I needed so I could enjoy the win with a victory salute.” Kenny paid tribute to the riders who had won the race before him, thrilled to join some of the Footscray Cycling Club’s greats. “There are some really amazing riders who have won this race and are on the honour board, so I am pretty chuffed to know my name will go on to that board,” he said. Kenny took the victory ahead of last year’s winner, Henry Dietze, and Dom Dudkiewicz. In A-grade women, Sarah Gigante continued

with her fantastic form to take the win with a long solo breakaway. The 17-year-old used her time-trial skills to power away from the bunch. “My plan was to put the power down and see if anyone could go with me,” she said. “I didn’t want to leave it to a sprint and I like time-trialling, so I just went as hard as I could. “It was the first time I have raced this circuit and it’s pretty tight and makes for interesting racing, some of the corners are off-camber and it’s quite bumpy. “So it was better to be out on my own as I could choose my own racing line. It was pretty special to win this criterium.” Gigante took the win from Nonie Carr and Vanessa Wong. Mark Micallef

Import paying dividends By Lance Jenkinson Star import Konor Kulas has had a profound impact, not only on the Werribee Devils, but on the Big V basketball men’s state championship as a whole. Kulas has taken the league by storm, averaging 24.1 points and 10.6 rebounds per game. Last week, Kulas was the leading scorer in the competition, but he dipped to third after a relatively quiet double header last weekend – well, by his standards, back to back double doubles is certainly nothing to sneeze at. Kulas is relishing the chance to be the Devils’ go-to player in the post and is benefitting from a system that promotes high scoring. “I’ve always kind of had a leadership role on most teams I’ve played on and been expected to score,” Kulas said. “This one is no different. “Our team tries to play a really fast tempo and score a lot of points. “We’ve got a lot of guys that score a lot.” Werribee has won two of its past three games and Kulas has been influential in both of those victories. In the 105-91 win over Keilor Thunder on May 6, the power forward scored a career-high 42 points and 10 rebounds. He backed it up in Saturday night’s 103-90 win over Hume City Broncos with 26 points and 15 rebounds, before cooling off with 13 points and 13 rebounds in Sunday’s 75-71 loss to Knox Raiders. Kulas will never forget his 42-point outing. “That’s the most I’ve ever scored in a game in high school, college or playing anywhere else, it’s pretty cool,” he said. “Most importantly, we got the win and hopefully we’re back on track to get some more wins and to climb up the ladder.” It has been a season of promise for the new-look Werribee, but it remains mid-table with a 4-7 record. It could have been so much better for the Devils had they won more of the close ones. “We’ve lost two in overtime, one on a buzzer beater and a couple of other ones that we’ve got within five,” Kulas lamented. “We’ve been right there, but I think we’re improving, so hopefully we can start winning those close games and get some more wins.” Kulas is adamant Werribee can make a run to the playoffs in the second half of the season. “Definitely, that’s our goal to get into the playoffs and make some noise,” Kulas said. “We have one player back from the Werribee team last season, besides that it’s all new guys and a new coach, but we have a really good chemistry.” Growing up in Wisconsin, Kulas was interested in basketball from a young age. 64 WYNDHAM STAR WEEKLY \ MAY 16, 2018

IN THE DOGHOUSE ■ Success in sport, like every other pursuit in life, requires more than just raw talent. Everyone knows someone who had the talent to make it to the top level, but didn’t get there. Doug Hawkins talks about a few of his Braybrook junior teammates who fell by the wayside while Doug carved out a legendary career in the red, white and blue. Last week, Hugh Litchfield passed away and with him went a story of a sportsman who is always a subject of those conversations. Universally known as “Butch”, he was a very handy cricketer and became a VFA cult hero with the Sunshine Football Club. In 1985, when the Bulldogs were heading to a possible grand final spot, Butch was playing in the VFA second division at Skinner Reserve and carving out a reputation. His 110 goals that season were followed by 134 goals in 1986. The pinnacle was a 20-goal haul against Mordialloc. Butch was a star, a big fish in a little pond. Why didn’t he make it to the big time? There is no correct answer – it just happened. He played some reserves games with Footscray, but it was not meant to be. In recent years, Butch was seen following his son, Jackson, in the WRFL. Fair to say, Butch was a shadow of the man who imposed himself in the goalsquare for Sunshine 30 years ago. He had his demons, but will always be remembered for his larger than life exploits on the field. RIP Butch. Condolences to his family. ■ The WRFL interleague sides head to Yarrawonga this weekend to take on the very powerful Ovens and Murray league. The under-19s, under coach Matt Dean, have had great games and success in recent years, but will be tested by the country boys on their own deck. The seniors, under Brodie Holland, have a huge mountain to climb against a very powerful opponent, with most scribes giving them no chance. The EDFL’s withdrawal from the competition has meant a fixture redraw that has not helped the WRFL. This weekend might decide the fate of future interleague programs. I think the resources would be best used to continue the under-age rep teams and give the senior version a big miss. The under-age competition is still based on geographic location, whereas the senior competition is based on economics. It does not mean as much to most blokes in senior footy, so let them concentrate on club footy, and spend the money where it is appreciated and makes a difference.

His dad played professionally in Ireland and grandad played NCAA division 1 college with the Wisconsin Badgers. Kulas had an ambition to play basketball abroad and after impressing with NCAA division 2 college South Dakota School of Mines, he got his wish to travel and play after he was recruited by German club BBC Montabaur. “It’s been my goal since I was about 16 to be

able to travel and play basketball, so this is a dream come true,” he said. Kulas is not only dominating on the court, he’s leaving his mark off it. Together with Werribee’s other import Bryan Nagy, the pair run basketball clinics and attend junior games. “We run a lot of Aussie Hoops camps for the young kids and make school visits in the area,” Kulas said.

Paul Kenny has etched his name into the Bob Robson Memorial Criterium history books. Kenny won the 58th edition of the western suburbs cycling race last month after being the best negotiator of the challenging layout around Williamstown High School. The men’s A-grade section produced a hot race right from the start, with the first 20 minutes of racing producing an average speed of 46km/h. Kenny, a 38-year-old Newport resident, was not going to die wondering, seizing his opportunity in the dying stages of the race. “I was actually really nervous about today because I had a plan that involved sitting at the back for the first half of the race,” he said. “This circuit is so tight that the bunch often breaks up into several groups … it was a really strong field, so I was really banking on it

Coach confident his Jets will eventually get firing Point Cook has not got its recipe quite right for its Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 3 promotion season. The Jets have been more than competitive in the higher league, and have even put in some commanding performances, but they are third from bottom with a single win after seven games. Coach Craig Filer is frustrated because of what he sees as self-inflicted wounds. “Something is just not clicking for us,” he said. “We’re not getting hammered – we’re losing by the odd goal, the odd mistake, a poor decision. That’s what’s costing us. “We’re going through a sticky stage that we have to dig ourselves out of – it’s as simple as that.” Point Cook’s 3-2 loss to Fawkner at Saltwater Reserve on Saturday was a prime example of how the Jets’ first seven weeks have gone. The Jets took an early lead through Farai Murwira, but were pegged back to 1-1 by half-time. They regained the lead through

Harrison Reading after the break and enjoyed Filer said. “Once it happens, I think we’ll be off and running, but we just need that second win a dominant 20 minutes. But instead of slamming the door shut on to get us going.” Meanwhile, Jason Hayne scored the equaliser Fawkner, they fell asleep for five minutes and in Hoppers Crossing’s 1-1 draw with Essendon copped two goals and a defeat. “We’ve probably out-played our opposition Royals in men’s state league 1. Truganina Hornets endured a nightmare 8-2 the last four games,” Filer said. “The Sebastopol game, we had 10 chances loss to Western Eagles in men’s state league 4, to their two. Essendon, we had five or six while West Point was beaten 2-1 by Gisborne in chances and didn’t take them. Last week, men’s state league 5. Julia Budiongo-Batota fired in a hat-trick to against Strathmore, we got done by a 93rd-minute penalty.

Another thriller for rivals

Hockey

Werribee is the latest in a long line of teams to be savagely beaten by Hockey Victoria Vic League 1 runaway leader Powerhouse-St Kilda. The Tigers were trounced 10-1 in their heaviest defeat of the season at the State Netball and Hockey Centre on Sunday. Sue Jones was the Tigers lone goalscorer on a bleak day. In men’s Vic League 2, Werribee’s poor home form continued with a 3-2 loss to St Bede’s. The Tigers have suffered one-goal losses in all three of their home games this season.

By Lance Jenkinson For late game drama, you can’t go past a Wyndham derby between Hoppers Crossing and Werribee Districts in the Western Region Football League division 1. The two local rivals know how to deliver a thrilling finish and that was the case again on Saturday as Werribee Districts emerged with a one-point victory at Hogans Road Reserve. Incredibly, the past four games in this rivalry have been decided by seven points or less – an average margin of 3.25 points per game. Werribee Districts coach Chris Gilham no longer needs to build up the game in his pre-game addresses – it builds up itself because of the history between the sides, the geography of the two clubs and the players who know each other through school, cricket, representative football or have crossed between the clubs. “It goes without saying we’ve got a fierce rivalry with Hoppers Crossing,” Gilham said. “No matter who is playing or where you are on the ladder, you just know that it’s going to be a tight game.” One solitary point separated the sides at the end of 120 pulsating minutes of football and Werribee Districts were the lucky ones on this occasion, earning a bit of payback for its narrow loss to the enemy in last year’s finals. The momentum shifted wildly all day with the Tigers prowling to a four-goal lead midway through the second quarter only to see Hoppers Crossing take a two-goal lead into three quarter-time. The final quarter was gripping. Hoppers Crossing kicked out to an 18-point lead before they were lassoed in by the Tigers, then Hoppers hit the lead again and the Tigers once again returned fire. Gilham was happy to concede that neither side deserved to lose, but he’ll take the four points of course. “It was a result that could’ve went either way so it was pleasing to be on the right side of it,” he said. Werribee Districts ruckman Will Sullivan had a colossal impact on the game. Sullivan, once listed with West Coast, dominated and was influential around the ground. “That’s probably where we thought we had the upper hand,” Gilham said. “Hoppers don’t sort of have a designated ruckman at the moment.” So far this season it has been Sullivan’s brother Caleb who has been one of Werribee Districts’ recruits of the year. “Caleb has no doubt been our best player for the first five weeks,” Gilham said. “He’s a really good intercept mark defender.” Onballer Mark Pozzuto was moved into the midfield as a fill-in for the injured Matt Dean and did some fine work at the coal face. Ruck rover Trent Lee was important in the

Basketball

Werribee Devils were pipped 79-77 in an overtime thriller by Casey Cavaliers in the Big V basketball women’s division 1 at Eagle Stadium on Sunday. The Devils had their chances in the dying stages of the extra time period, but a three-point attempt from Jessy Price and free throws from Sam Moodie missed the mark. Import Alyssa Bennett top-scored for Werribee with 23 points to go with 15 rebounds, while Jessica Slade hit an efficient 20 points with 12 rebounds. The Devils (4-6) have a winnable game against Warrandyte Venom (3-6) on Sunday at Eagle Stadium.

Tigers getting first use of the ball, while Stephen Plumridge shut down Hoppers star Jordan Mead. Cameron Lee, Jordan Patty and Chris Molivas kicked two goals apiece for the Tigers. For Hoppers Crossing, Mitch Palma, Chase Guy and Ashlin Brown were the standouts, while Daniel Strnak had a big day with four goals. Werribee Districts have had an undefeated start to the season, while Hoppers Crossing can also be content after its 3-2 start.

It’s the WRFL’s biggest rivalry over the past 12 months and here’s why ...

Werribee Centrals’ comeback fell short in a one-point loss to Winchelsea in the Geelong and District Football League Smiths Holden Cup. The Centurions trailed by 30 points at three quarter-time, but came home strongly with five goals to one in the fourth term to almost pull off a miraculous win. With three wins and a draw from the opening six games, the Centurions will go into the representative weekend break in sixth place. In the Victorian Amateur Football Association division 3, Westbourne Grammarians had an 18-point loss to Swinburne University, leaving them in seventh place ahead of a trip to Manningham Cobras this Saturday.
