At-risk teens handed a lifeline committee comprising school, police, ambulance and mental health experts to respond to the crisis. ‘‘Difficult situations can divide or unite a community. It’s clear this issue has united the community.’’ Ms Wooldridge said the school initiative was an Australia first and would become a model for other communities facing similar crises. ‘‘Seventy-five per cent of significant mental health issues emerge before the age of 25. Early intervention is vital but schools can’t do it on their own. ‘‘We want to learn from this so if other communities are affected in the future, we can respond quickly without having to learn all over again how to do it. We want to know what worked and what needs to be improved to help schools respond to young people who need help.’’ The CEO of headspace, Kathleen Alonso, said the Casey community had led the way in providing a co-ordinated early response to young people at risk, and the new initiative would build on that work and reduce anxiety

STUDENTS in Casey and Cardinia secondary schools will be screened to ensure they are not at risk of self-harm as part of a $960,000 program to tackle youth suicide. State Mental Health Minister Mary Wooldridg, announced the initiative in Hampton Park last week in response to a cluster of youth suicides in Casey and Cardinia in 2011 and 2012. A school support team from the national youth mental health service headspace will provide the services, including assessment and training. Students found to be at risk will be referred on to clinical services if necessary. Initially, the program will focus on up to 12 schools that have been affected by suicide but it could be extended to up to 50 schools and two TAFE colleges. Ms Wooldridge said the Casey community — parents, siblings, teachers, friends, classmates — had endured tragic losses as a result of youth suicides. She lauded the response of Casey Council which established a network

among parents, teachers and students. ‘‘Youth suicide is complex and multi-faceted and it needs a complex response. Suicide clusters require a highly co-ordinated response.’’ She said the program would provide ‘‘gatekeeper’’ training for school staff to recognise those at risk, with direct clinical support available when required. The group manager of emergency operations for Ambulance Victoria, Andrew Watson, welcomed the initiative. Mr Watson, a member of Casey’s youth suicide steering committee, said his members had been severely affected by the deaths of so many young people in 2011-12. He said the incidence had certainly fallen since its peak. ‘‘The main message is to encourage people to seek help.’’ Headspace will open a new centre on the site of the old Savers shop in Dandenong this month. ■ If you or someone you know may be at risk, you can find help at Lifeline 13 11 14 and beyondblue 1300 224 636.

A couple of mates could do with some company when they stride out in Akoonah Park on Saturday. Jake Downward and Shaye Webber, year 10 students at Beaconhills College’s Pakenham campus, have organised the walk in support of young people battling mental health problems. They set up Stride4Life in response to a cluster of youth suicides and self-harm incidents in Casey and Cardinia schools last year. Guest speakers will address walkers after the event and representatives of community support services will answer queries. Details: stride4life.org.au or just turn up at Berwick’s Akoonah Park by 10am on Saturday. If you or someone you know is experiencing an emotional crisis, call Lifeline, 131 114.

I think this is a perfect example of why breedspecific legislation is such a badly constructed ‘law’ and why it is resulting in the unnecessary deaths of many perfectly good animals and trauma to their families — not to mention the fortunes squandered by local councils like Cardinia and Hume to mention but two in their fanatical pursuit of dogs and their owners under this appalling law. Breedspecific legislation should be immediately and urgently repealed. There are many better models that have been clearly demonstrated to be more

What has this dog done wrong? Who has this dog hurt? Instead of using valuable council funds on a dog that has harmed no one, why not use those funds in a proactive way, such setting up a lost animal website for your area, or lowering the ‘euthanasia’ rates at your nominated pound, etc. Dogs that have actually caused harm should be impounded and reckless owners who encourage aggression in their animals fined. Show some common sense and let this poor innocent dog be reunited with his owner. Chrissy (via web)

NARRE Warren North residents fear a new Hindu place of worship will signal the end of their quiet lifestyles on Casey’s fringe. The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal has upheld a decision by Casey Council to allow a Hindu place of worship and community centre to be built on a large residential block in Hallam North Road. Residents say the decision creates a precedent for the area’s large blocks to be transformed into places of worship, with three others already in the area. Kathryn Caldwell, who lives 500 metres from the site, said only members of the Shri Sanatan Dharam Society would be allowed on the site. ‘‘It’s been approved as a community centre but in actual fact no one that lives in the vicinity will be allowed on the site.’’ She denied residents’ objections had anything to do with religion — ‘‘our dispute is not with the people but with the uses of the premises’’.

Harmony grows in fertile ground

Residents claim an end to the quiet life BY CHAD VAN ESTROP

Earlier this year, 255 residents signed a petition objecting to Buddhist and Hindu groups buying up houses in Narre Warren North and using them as places of worship. ‘‘We don’t want to be overrun by these organisations,’’ Ms Caldwell said. Narre Warren North resident Barry Walker said objectors could not afford to take the fight further. ‘‘Casey don’t give a stuff about the residents. They just let it go through [because] it’s all too hard. ‘‘It’s easy pickings here because the houses are set on big blocks. It’s a lot easier to buy around here than start from scratch.’’ Mr Walker, whose bedroom window is 25 metres from the site’s boundary, claims he heard loud music coming from the site late at night over the Easter weekend. A petition from the Shri Sanatan Dharam Society, with 111 signatures, was presented to the council last year supporting the place of worship. The society declined to comment to the Weekly.

RELIGIOUS and ethnic harmony is being sown in a flourishing garden in Hampton Park. The community garden at Hampton Park’s Uniting Church has become a social space where people of all races, nationalities and religions meet, socialise and put their green thumbs to work. Minister Mat Harry said everyone was welcome to help tend the garden no matter what their sex, race or religion. ‘‘The community that is formed around the garden needs to be reflected in the broader sense.’’ Mr Harry said the garden — currently growing fruit, flowers and vegetables — was designed to promote a sense of belonging and connection. The garden has 40 plots for rent, costing up to $40 a year. But Mr Harry said expansion was on the horizon, after eight cubic metres of soil was delivered to the garden for a working bee last week. Hampton Park’s Nema Singh, who grows zucchinis , was among 20 at the working bee. Ms Singh, a Hindu, said she was happy to socialise and work with people of different religions and nationalities . ‘‘The garden promotes unity and we respect

Iran asylum seeker San Niksafat, who is on heavy working restrictions as a condition of his stay in Australia, says the garden gives him the opportunity to connect with people he normally wouldn’t. Mr Harry said he hoped to use the garden to heal religious divisions, which had surfaced over a controversial proposal for a mosque in Doveton. — Chad Van Estrop

Sitting tight on the straight and narrow BY CATHERINE WATSON

HAVE YOUR SAY

LAST year Casey Council issued 922 fines to drivers who parked on nature strips, many outside their own homes. Drive around Casey and you will see thousands of cars parked on nature strips, particularly in the newer housing estates with small building blocks and narrow streets. Many residents don’t realise they can be fined for doing so. Even if they do, many have no choice because their streets are too narrow to park on. Last week a Cranbourne East resident told Channel Nine he intended to challenge an $86 fine issued by the council for parking on his nature strip. At a council meeting today, Casey councillor Gary Rowe will introduce a notice of motion to amend the policy to make it legal to park on nature strips under certain conditions. ‘‘Anyone from Cranbourne North, Cranbourne East, Cranbourne West is affected. Every second house has a car parked on the nature

strip. Most families have at least two cars. Some of those places don’t have a double garage. ‘‘These people bought in subdivisions that they expected to be able to live in. We have to live with this and we have to make it work.’’ But changing the policy might not be so easy. The council’s acting manager of community safety, Tracey Blythe, said parking on nature strips was an offence under state legislation, and councils had to enforce it. ‘‘The law is not a matter of amenity but (visual) safety for motorists and pedestrians.’’ Cr Rowe said local laws officers generally exercised discretion about imposing fines. ‘‘Some municipalities such as Melbourne use this as a very lucrative revenue stream. I would hope this is not the case with Casey.’’

Hobson’s choice: Parking on nature strips is illegal but may be safer than parking on the narrow streets in Casey’s new estates. He said the council had inherited state planning laws that encouraged developers to reduce the size of building blocks and width of streets. At present, residents can apply for a permit to construct an indented parking space on their nature strip, but it could cost them about $5000 and neighbours are entitled to use the space too.

A solution for existing estates could be a special charge scheme, whereby the council would construct indented parking spaces on nature strips and allow home owners to pay off the cost. Cr Rowe will also ask the council to look at establishing a parking area for trucks to keep them out of residential streets.

AT CRANBOURNE

TAFE cuts starting to bite STUDENTS at Chisholm TAFE’s Berwick campus say they are beginning to feel the pinch of state government funding cuts. Chisholm, which also has campuses in Cranbourne, Dandenong and Frankston, axed 220 jobs and 27 courses last year in response to $30 million in budget cuts. Allison Parker, who is studying for a diploma of child services, said she was now given less attention by her teachers after class sizes rose dramatically at the beginning of this year. Ms Parker said six months had also been slashed from her course. ‘‘The cuts have made the TAFE rethink our course. The lack of resources is probably why they shortened our course.’’ Ms Parker said she now spent less time on campus and more time studying at home. ‘‘A lot of the teachers’ hours have been cut because the TAFE is unable to allocate them the time. It’s tough because I’m more a handson type of person.’’ Danielle Ferrari-Mela, who is also studying for a diploma of child services, said the changes to her course were ‘‘not a bad thing’’.

‘‘The course has given me the skills to go out and work at a Pearcedale day care and kindergarten,’’ she said. Ms Ferrari-Mela hit out at wider cuts to the TAFE sector, saying it was unfair to limit the options of students who did not want to study at university. Narre Warren North Labor MP Luke Donnellan said it was unlikely Chisholm would see any of the $200 million cash injection into the sector announced shortly after Denis Napthine replaced Ted Baillieu as premier. Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews, who visited Chisholm last week, said cuts to courses in retail, hospitality and business had hit Chisholm hard. ‘‘There are fantastic teachers, students and services here at Chisholm but it is a great shame that there isn’t enough support.’’ Deputy chief executive at Chisholm, Peter Harrison, said the TAFE sector was in ‘‘good shape’’ and continued to provide ‘‘essential training for the community’’.

FEATURESTORY

Keeping the home fires burning Many of Victoria’s elderly are fighting a battle against age to remain in their own homes. CHAD VAN ESTROP looks at what services are keeping them in their homes. ucked away in a corner of Alan’s home in Noble Park is a treadmill and an exercise bike. These are his weapons in his battle against age. As age and illness have challenged, Alan, 79, has placed renewed importance on his fitness regime and somewhat reluctantly opened himself up to services available to the elderly living alone. Alan refuses to allow age to take hold of his life. He is hell-bent on maintaining his fitness and using the services available to him to stay in his own home. Psychiatrists and those working in aged care say the longer the elderly can continue to live in their homes the better it is for their health and well-being. The battle to remain in their homes is one fought by many of the state’s seniors. But for the 55 per cent of Victorians aged over 75 who live alone, that battle is solitary. Alan uses his fitness regime and the Red Cross Telechat service as weapons in his silent battle against age. So when Alan’s phone rings each Friday at 11.30am he is quick to pick up. Alan is one of 70 Melburnians who receive the Telechat service from the Red Cross. The free service provides regular telephone calls to people who have little or no social connection. Participants are matched with volunteers based on their interests and hobbies. Volunteers call participants once a week for an open-ended chat. “It is outstanding and it takes a lot of worry from my mind,” Alan says. Alan’s other tool against age, his fitness regime, includes weekly walks at Parkmore shopping centre and daily stints on his treadmill and short weight sessions. “These are the things I do to fight age. It’s for my own benefit.’’ Alan’s dedication to his fitness stems from the time he spent in the army between 1950-56. “I’ve got to keep moving, if I don’t I’ll die,” he says. “At 75 I could run like a yoyo. I could go anywhere and do anything. I’d like to get back to that level.” In recent years, Alan’s battle against age has intensified; arthritis restricts movement in his hands, pinched nerves in his back mean he can only stand for short periods, restricted blood flow to his legs leave him reliant on a walking stick and his blood sugar level fluctuates daily. “If I wanted to get more services I could, but I don’t want it,” he says. While Alan has largely shunned the services available to the elderly, preferring to maintain his fitness as deterrent to the onset of age, many Victorian seniors have taken up the opportunity. Chadstone resident Carmen has a number of services at her disposal in her struggle against age. At 79, she faces an uphill battle trying to minimise the effect renal failure, a hairline fracture in

Helping hand: Angela Dunleavy (right) says there are myriad services available for the elderly in their own homes, everything from help with the shopping to help with showering. Picture: Rob Carew her left leg and arthritis have on her life. Carmen, who has lived alone for 23 years, has home cleaning fortnightly through a service provided by Monash Council. Carmen says it is a “great help” because she doesn’t have the stamina to complete the cleaning herself. She says discounted rates for a gardener provided by the council helps with the upkeep of her home. Carmen says her lifeline is a personal alarm she wears around her neck day and night. The alarm, provided by personal assistance service Mepacs, gives her immediate access to emergency services. She is one of almost 30,000 Victorians using the service to ensure help is never far away. Late last year when Carmen fell in her shower, she witnessed the speed of the Mepacs service. ‘‘I pressed the button because I couldn’t get up and within 10 minutes I was surrounded by people,” she says. Carmen is also a user of the Red Cross Telecross service, which provides daily calls to the elderly who may be at risk of an accident or illness going unnoticed. If the calls are unanswered an agreed emergency procedure is activated and help is arranged if needed. Diana Carroll, manager of Red Cross social inclusion programs, says the benefits of social interaction for the elderly must not be forgotten. “Humans are social creatures and regardless of what age we are we need some interaction.”

April 16, 2013

Call out: Alan of Noble Park uses the Red Cross’s Telechat service to relieve some of the loneliness associated with living alone. Picture: Wayne Hawkins Victoria Police runs a service similar to the Telechat program. Cranbourne, Maroondah as well as other stations have seniors’ registries which volunteers use to call the elderly on a regular basis. Angela Dunleavy, chief executive at the Dandenong South-based Care Professionals — an organisation providing in-home care and help to the elderly — says there are gaps in the services provided to people in their homes. She says extended aged care in homes, supported by the federal government, is “over-

managed and under-serviced”. Ms Dunleavy says administrative costs tended to prevent the filtering of services down to a local level. “All the costs come out of the same bucket. I think the care bucket should be separate from the administrative bucket.’’ Peter Feeney, manager of the south-eastern region of National Seniors Victoria — a lobby group aiming to improve the lives of those over 50 — says information about services provided by local and state government needs to be more widely circulated. “The biggest problem is getting the information out to people.” Mr Feeney also works with the Maroondah Healthy Ageing Network, where he and his team publish the Chatterbox newsletter, giving details of services available to the elderly in Knox, Maroondah and Yarra Ranges. Mr Feeney says councils are generally the best point of call to uncover the services available to the elderly. “Councils have a lot of information for the elderly, all you need to do is talk to them. ‘‘When people are in their own home they can maintain their circle of friends and contacts,’’ he says. ‘‘It gives them more power.” Psychiatrist Nitin Dharwadkar, who worked in adult psychiatry at Monash Hospital between 2006-11, agrees. Dr Dharwadkar says the level of control inside nursing homes often had a negative effect on the self-esteem of the elderly.


CASEY residents could join the action in Australia’s biggest garage sale this year. On May 5 last year, more than 3000 households around the country combined for a garage sale that attracted more than 75,000 shoppers nationally, helped by an online map of sale locations. This year’s sale will be held on October 26, and several Victoria councils have already signed up. Last week, Casey councillors agreed to invite the founders of Garage Sale Trail, Tamara Dimattina and Andrew Valdar, to explain the scheme to them. Casey mayor Amanda Stapledon said the trail project was aimed at reducing the volume of stuff going to landfill but also encouraged neighbourhood and community connections. ‘‘The idea is to have sales in the morning and a more social focus in the afternoon.’’ The invitation to the Garage Sale Trail founders coincides with a review of Casey’s hard rubbish collection. Two years ago, the annual city-wide hard rubbish collection was replaced by a system where residents could book two free collections a year. At a recent council meeting, Cr Rafal Kaplon

called for a report comparing the costs, benefits and disadvantages of the two collection systems. He said too many residents were unaware of or confused about the new system, as shown by the discarded television sets, chests of drawers and mattresses around the street. ‘‘Sometimes a problem arises simply because people don’t know they need to pre-book. ‘‘They see a neighbour putting their hard rubbish out and believe it must be the annual hard rubbish collection and put theirs out too.’’ He said there were also issues around informing Casey’s multicultural communities about the new system. Earlier this month, the state government announced funding for charity stores to install surveillance equipment, signage and fencing to stop illegal dumping of unusable goods at op shops. Environment Minister Ryan Smith said the dumping of litter at opportunity shops was a burden on Victorian charities. Stores involved in the trial include the Salvos in Narre Warren and Cranbourne and St Vincent de Paul in Cranbourne. To book a hard waste collection, residents need to call Transpacific Cleanaway on 9729 9100.

Cutting out the waste

Biggest sale of all BY CATHERINE WATSON

CARDINIA Shire Council is calling on residents to reduce household waste as a part of a Halve Your Waste program. The council is offering residents the option to swap their 120-litre bins for smaller 80-litre bins. The program aims to have residents recycling up to 65 per cent of household waste by 2014. ‘‘In Cardinia Shire, we generate over 16,000 tonnes of waste that ends up in landfill every year. ‘‘That’s the weight of 38 jumbo jets,’’ Cardinia mayor Brett Owen said. He said composting food scraps was also a proven way of reducing household waste. The council will offer residents a $30 discount on their rates for taking part in the program.

Ready to recycle: Betty Maddocks has taken up the challenge to halve her waste. Picture: Wayne Hawkins

Ever Considered Seeing A Chiropractor? You Must Read This Now If you suffer from a health problem and have considered seeing a chiropractor, this could be a very important article for you to read.

• Sporting Injuries • Car Accidents • Shoulder, Hip And Knee Pain

My name is Dr. Robbie Hunt, DC. I chose to start my practice in Pakenham over four years ago because I felt there was a big shortage of chiropractic services in the Pakenham, Berwick, Officer and Beaconsfield areas. Since then, I’ve used chiropractic treatments to help many in our community feel better and live healthier, more productive lives.

“Does Chiropractic Really Work?” Chiropractic has been around for over a hundred years, and has been used on everyone from tiny babies to the elderly. Even top sports people see chiropractors… including Tiger Woods, Pat Rafter, Lance Armstrong and Usain Bolt, just to name a few! In addition to this, here’s what some top medical researchers had to say about chiropractic… “Manipulation, with or without exercise, improved symptoms more than best care (medical care) alone after three and 12 months.” - %ULWLVK 0HGLFDO -RXUQDO     -1381. A scientific study concluded that patients with chronic neck pain showed “clinically important improvements from a course of spinal manipulation....” - -RXUQDO RI 0DQLSXODWLYH 3K\VLRO 7KHU  -XO\  (6): 473-8.

“Isn’t Chiropractic Just For Back Pain?”

“How Much Does Chiropractic Cost?” It’s impossible to know for sure what you’ll need to potentially improve your nagging health problem until you have been examined. I’ve priced my initial chiropractic assessment for a very affordable $37. This will include: • An in-depth consultation about your health where I will listen. • A complete nerve, muscle and spinal exam to find the potential “cause” of your problem. • If clinically indicated a set of spinal x-rays can be taken onsite (additional cost) to look for misalignments, bad posture, and joint degeneration… • A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings (if taken) so we can map out your plan to better health. I’ll also answer all your questions about what chiropractic may be able to do for you.

Phone 5940-4760

Dr. Robbie with some of his patients There’s a long list of health problems chiropractic may be able to help with. For example, here’s what a study on chiropractic and high blood pressure found…

Although chiropractic works great for back pain, at our practice we’ve “This procedure has the effect of not one, but two blood-pressure medihelped patients with a range of problems. cations given in combination… And it seems to be adverse-event free. We may be able help conditions such as: We saw no side effects and no problems” said study leader George • Headaches and Migraines Bakris, MD, director of the University of Chicago hypertension center. • Asthma and Allergies Journal of Human Hypertension  (21):347-35 • Numbness in the Arms and Legs • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Call today and we can get started with your consultation, examination and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening in the schedule. Our practice is called Pakenham Chiropractic and you can find us at 40 Main Street. The big myth about health problems is “maybe it will just go away on its own.” But in most cases your problems will persist. That’s no way to live, not when there may be an easy solution to your problem. What I’m offering here is a natural approach to your health. I encourage you to call today. Sincerely, Dr. Robbie Hunt

INBRIEF Raids net big drugs haul Homes in Narre Warren, Noble Park and Clayton South were raided in a joint police drug operation last week. Police alleged drugs were found suspended in liquid within bottles of carpet stain cleaner and that the liquid equated to 280 kilograms of pure methamphetamine, with an estimated street value of $205 million. The bottles allegedly arrived in a shipping container at Port of Melbourne from Hong Kong. A 45-year-old Hong Kong national and a 31-year-old Canadian were arrested and faced Melbourne Magistrates Court charged with importing a commercial quantity of methamphetamines and attempting to possess a commercial quantity of methamphetamines.

Woman on child stealing charge A 38-year-old Narre Warren South woman appeared in Dandenong Magistrates Court last Monday week charged with child stealing. She was charged in relation to an alleged attempted abduction of a four-year-old child in Cranbourne’s Thompson Parkway shopping centre on April 3. The woman was remanded in custody to reappear.

Mature age study information Monash University is holding an information evening tomorrow night (Wednesday) for those thinking of returning to study as a mature age student or wanting to do postgraduate study. The information evening will be held in Building 901, Monash University, Berwick between 4pm-7pm. Register online to attend.

India mission an eye-opener AS an optometrist, Berwick’s David West gets many accolades from his local patients, but none like the ones he received during a recent trip to India as part of a health team. ‘‘We were rewarded with many smiles and hugs, and it wasn’t uncommon for the older patients to bend down and touch our feet in gratitude — all rather humbling.’’ For Mr West who, with his wife Carol has been practising in Cranbourne for 36 years, this was the second trip to India with Equal Health, a Perth-based aid agency. He and a Balwyn colleague, Sue Strachan, were part of a team of 26, including doctors, dentists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and nurses. Over two weeks, they examined 1700 people in the West Bengal area, a few hours’ train ride from Kolkata. They were accompanied by Mr West’s 19-year-old daughter Ellen, a student at Monash University, and Ms Strachan’s son Dan, with a nurse and interpreters to help. Mr West said that each day, they boarded a small bus for a bone-shaking drive to a school, hospital or clinic in various rural villages. ‘‘People would have travelled from far and wide, often waiting for hours in the sun to see us.’’

Second sight: Ellen West with an Indian patient, newly fitted with spectacles. In India, as in many other Third World countries, the main cause of poor sight is lack of spectacle correction. Although the team was able to organise cataract surgery for some, the main aim was to fit patients with suitable spectacles to allow them to lead a productive life. The spectacles are made up in a Western Australian prison.

Mr West said nothing could prepare the travellers for their first experience of Kolkata, a city of about 23 million people. ‘‘Imagine the population of Australia concentrated into one city. ‘‘Some of what we saw was quite confronting, but one tries not to be judgmental. It’s all a big adventure.”

When every day is precious BY CATHERINE WATSON WATCHING Veronica Matajevac’s sparkling eyes and hearing her ready laugh, you would think she was in the peak of health. Yet she has lived with metastasised bone cancer for three years — statistically speaking, she should be dead. ‘‘I don’t want to wait for death in a corner — I want death to chase me,’’ the Narre Warren resident told the Weekly. It’s that attitude she wants to bring to a support group for women with cancer she has started because she could find nothing on this side of the city to suit her own needs. The group will be a place for women to express their fears — the ones they can’t talk about even with their families — but also a place to laugh, to make friends and to plan ahead. Ms Matajevac said her mantra was ‘‘Do not suffer in silence’’. The group is open to everyone

Living proof: Veronica Matajevac says everyone needs something to look forward to. Picture: Wayne Hawkins but is particularly targeted at women from a non-Englishspeaking background who might not feel comfortable in an Anglo group. “I believe these are the ones who are suffering in silence.”

Since she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, Ms Matajevac has endured multiple regimes of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. After two years of remission, her worst moment came in 2010 when she learned the cancer had metas-

tasised to her bones. ‘‘Of course, I panicked. So I planned a trip to China. When I got back, my cancer count had gone down. My oncologist couldn’t understand it.’’ And therein lies a secret, she believes. ‘‘You need a reason to get up in the morning. There is a great power in that.’’ Of course, Ms Matajevac has her down times, too, but she gets out of them as soon as possible because she believes they are dangerous. “I’m not the first or the last to face this challenge. How you face it is your choice.” She says if nothing else, women will find a friend and gain strength from being with others facing the same challenge.

‘Superhero’ primed to grapple with best BY KAREN COOMBS WRESTLER Matt Silva has landed the chance of a lifetime and in a few weeks will move to the US to compete in one of the biggest sports entertainments in the world. Silva, who grew up in Berwick, is the first Australian signed to World Wrestling Entertainment. ‘‘It’s like being a superhero,’’ Silva says of his chosen craft. World Wrestling Entertainment in the US is the big stage of wrestling competitions and to be able to compete is a rare opportunity, especially for Australians. Silva was signed by WWE for a development deal after he was noticed by international legends of wrestling at try-outs last September. ‘‘Being in Australia the odds are less [of getting a contract],’’ Silva said. ‘‘For it to happen in Australia is a big deal — no one else has had it before.’’ Silva, 24, who began wrestling when he was six, will move to Orlando, Florida where he hopes to work his way from the bottom to the

top, travelling the country with the tours. ‘‘It will be very full on, no days off, always travelling, always wrestling. I will be tortured in a way,’’ he said with a laugh. Not that hard work is unfamiliar to Silva. Wrestling requires hard workouts daily in the gym to ‘‘make sure that the body is right’’. He is his own toughest critic, critiquing all his matches striving to be better. ‘‘You’ve got to believe in yourself,’’ Silva said. ‘‘I always believed in myself and strive to be better.’’ His last fight in Australia was on Saturday night when he came up against his ‘‘former’’ best friend and pupil Adam Brooks for Melbourne City Wrestling. The previous time the two met Brooks, ‘‘hit me with a chair and turned his back on me’’ — the ultimate insult in the theatre that is professional wrestling. An emotionally charged crowd gave Silva a rousing send-off. ‘‘Wrestling is larger than life. I like the ‘wow’ factor. The look on the audiences’ faces five metres away from the stage is priceless.’’

Dream chance: Matt Silva heads to the US soon to throw his weight around in WWE. Picture: Cory Lockwood

Falcons bring Rays crashing to earth BY BRAD McGRATH DANDENONG Stingrays’ TAC Cup season crashed from chocolates to boiled lollies on Saturday. The Stingrays were coming off a brillian victory over Eastern Ranges but all the things that made that victory possible were absent in their 65-point loss to Geelong Falcons. Stingrays coach Graeme Yeats said the 7.11 (53) to 18.10 (118) loss was littered with skill errors and poor decision making. ‘‘We were never competitively in the game — the scoreboard might have been pretty close but in general play they dominated around the contest. ‘‘We were clearly outclassed by a better team and a more hard-working team.’’ The Stingrays simply lacked the vigour of the previous week. Skipper Nathan Foote and defender Zac Jones desperately tried to lift them

but it was to no avail. Falcons George Cameron and Fraser Fort dominated the second half and guided their team to an important victory. Seventeen year olds Tom Lamb, who booted two goals, and Daniel Capiron battled valiantly. ‘‘In the third quarter we had probably had eight of the first 10 inside 50s. We just didn’t take our chances,’’ Yeats said. ‘‘They were then able to wrest the momentum back from us.’’ The Stingrays’ next game is against Western Jets on Sunday, April 28.

Seagulls off to flyer with a first-up win TOORADIN-Dalmore opened its Casey Cardinia League season with a gutsy 20-point win over ROC at Tooradin Recreation Reserve on Saturday. In windy and tough conditions, brilliant Seagulls star Matt Wade clicked into gear in the second half after being shadowed closely by Daniel Ellett, to guide his team to a 12.18 (90) to 11.4 (70) victory. ROC led by 20 points midway through the third term with Ryan Hendy threatening to tear the game apart before the Seagulls’ fightback. ‘‘It ebbed and flowed all day,’’ Tooradin-Dalmore coach Tom Hallinan said. ‘‘In the third quarter they really came out of the blocks and Ryan Hendy looked like he was going to take control of the game. ‘‘We shuffled the decks at threequarter-time. Beau Miller went into the middle, [Brett] Scarcella went forward and really provided some leadership.’’ The performance of several Seagull recruits had Hallinan beaming after the game. Scarcella was brilliant and youngster Ryan Eaton was also among the

best players in their Seagull debuts. Recruit Ryan Edwards missed the clash but is some chance of making his debut this weekend. Tooradin-Dalmore squandered several early chances but had managed to eke out a 13-point lead by the long change. ROC was managing to stay in the contest through the efforts of Ben Tivendale, Hendy and James Waldon. ‘‘There is just so much build-up to the first game and I told the guys not to worry about the mistakes,’’ Hallinan said. The coach said it was a ‘‘super day’’ for the club after the newly formed third XI and the reserves also recorded victories. Beaconsfield started its campaign with a 50-point victory over Berwick with boom Wodonga Raiders recruit Scott Meyer best on ground. Michael McPhie and Troy McDermott combined for nine goals for the victors. It was also the official opening of Beaconsfield’s new home ground, Holm Park Recreation Reserve, which various parties have contributed just over $12 million to make happen. Pakenham showed it is a vastly dif-

Scorpions’ young gun puts on master class JESSE Hogan showed why he is one of the most hyped teenagers in the country with a match-winning performance for Casey Scorpions in a ninepoint victory over North Ballarat Roosters at Eureka Stadium on Saturday. The brilliant 17 year old booted three first-half goals and gave Melbourne fans a flicker of hope after another shellacking for the Demons, this time at the hands of West Coast on Saturday. Hogan is on Melbourne’s AFL list but is not eligible to play until next year. Scorpions coach Rohan Welsh believes the teen has a bright future. ‘‘Hogan was really good up front — he presented well and marked strongly. ‘‘He is showing all the signs that he’ll be a very good AFL player.’’ The Scorpions were leading by 40 points at half-time and appeared headed for a big victory but the Roosters showed plenty of fighting spirit. The win was given more merit by the fact the Scorpions lost Tom Couch

before the game through injury, Rory Taggert was knocked out in the opening minutes of the final quarter and Daniel Nicholson suffered a corked leg. Welsh said he was proud of the composure shown by his team after the Roosters threatened to steal a victory. ‘‘From a team point of view we actually spoke about having a good lead at half-time.’’ Scorpions ruckman Max Gawn was again dominant and pushed his claims for a call-up to bolster the struggling Melbourne ruck department, which was demolished by West Coast’s Dean Cox. James Strauss and captain Evan Panozza were also solid performers for the Scorpions. Dropped Melbourne utility Jack Watts did not play for the Scorpions or anywhere after he was kept on standby for Mitch Clark, who was under an injury cloud. The Scorpions face VFL newcomers Essendon at Windy Hill from 1pm on Saturday. — Brad McGrath

right from the outset and a punishing first half gave the Eagles no chance of revival. Narre Warren is holding the wood over Cranbourne in yet another bitter contest between the Casey Cardinia rivals.

Magpies extend hoodoo over fierce rival Eagles BY BRAD McGRATH NARRE Warren coach Chris Toner believes his side might have a psychological grip on Cranbourne after the Magpies claimed the latest instalment of their fierce Casey Cardinia Football League rivalry on Sunday. The Magpies have won their past four matches against Cranbourne including last year’s grand final, with the Eagles’ last victory over their old sparring partner coming in round two last year. Cranbourne won the 2011 premiership from Narre Warren and Toner knows from experience there are significant hurdles to overcome when a team has beaten you several times in a row. ‘‘I think we’ve won the last four now,’’ Toner said. ‘‘I know we were pretty apprehensive when they had beaten us six or seven times in a row — until we beat them. They were and are such a

powerful side but we felt a lot more overawed playing them [when they hadn’t beaten them] and that’s taking nothing away from them because they are still such a powerful side.’’ Narre Warren dominated proceedings in the first quarter of Sunday’s clash at Kalora Park but wasted several important opportunities. Kain Baskaya was dominating at centre half-forward and brother Kerem (five goals) was providing a target deeper in attack. All the early signs indicated Narre Warren would make it four in a row but the onslaught that came after quarter-time could not have been predicted. The Magpies slammed on 10.4 to 3.2 to take a 49-point break into halftime with Ben Wragg winning plenty of contested possession in an unfamiliar on-ball role. The final score was Narre Warren 18.18 (126), Cranbourne 12.9 (81).

Ruck recruit Dan Harders was strong in the ruck and Chris and Matt Lee were typically productive. Cranbourne star Marc Holt played a lone hand up forward with eight of his team’s 12 goals. Ryan Davey was the Eagles’ most productive midfielder but he was fighting a losing battle despite the Magpies losing Andrew Nelson, Boyle and Wragg through injury. Toner is expecting a much closer contest next time they come up against Cranbourne with several players, including Andrew Young, missing the clash. ‘‘It’s fair to assume they will be a lot better — they had a wedding on and they were missing three or four good players,’’ he said. Cranbourne should notch its first win of the season when it clashes with Hampton Park at home on Saturday, while Narre Warren travels to Keysborough.

The division 2 women won the second leg of their double-header 56-49 against Warrnambool in Warrnambool on Sunday.

Peninsula aims for a wave of supporters PENINSULA Waves are hopeful a home crowd will give them a boost in their Victorian Netball League clash against Monash University Central at Patterson River Secondary College on Saturday night. The Waves will play the first of two home games and coach Claire Houben hopes the local crowds will come out in force to support her undefeated championship team. But she knows it will be no easy task against Central, who are sitting fourth with a 3-2 record after five rounds. ‘‘It should be a very closely contested game,’’ Houben said. ‘‘I’m really hoping that we’ll match up well with them — they are normally a very good side and got a lot of strong talent.’’ The Waves have been awarded two home games this season and the club is hopeful strong crowd turnouts will help them secure more fixtures on the peninsula. ‘‘We do look forward to it and it’s great for our

young ones as well — the under-19s and div 1 — with parents and club supporters as well,’’ Houben said. ‘‘It’s usually a highlight for the club and hopefully it will be very entertaining.’’ To give the clash added spice, former Waves coach Robynn Pym, who stood down as championship coach after they bowed out of the finals last season, has joined Monash University as under-19s coach. Central will come into the match on the back of its most telling win of the season after thumping UB Ballarat Pride 70-38 in the previous round. But with the VNL pausing last week for the 19-and-under and 17-and-under national championships, the two sides will come into the game 11 days after their last match. Central coach Leesa Maxfield said her players would have to work hard to retain the form found in the win over the Pride. ‘‘It could be our biggest downfall coming into this game because we had such a great game

Comets put one past Heatherton

Confident Cavs slay Giants THE Casey Cavaliers’ Youth League outfit suffered a late scare but held off the Coburg Giants to record their second win of the Big V season on Saturday. In front of a vocal home crowd the Cavs recorded a 64-59 victory to square up their ledger at 2-2 for the season. Cavs coach Jason Suttie said there were a few anxious moments in the closing stages of the game but praised his team’s ability to keep its cool. ‘‘We were pleased with our performance. We got off to a decent start and got a decent lead near the end,’’ he said. ‘‘We did let the other team back in towards the end.’’ The lead stretched out to 20 points during the third term when Hamish Abbott nailed several three-pointers to put the Cavs in control. Charlie So was also back to his productive best after a quiet game against Keysborough last week. ‘‘The group, which is so young, is still getting used to playing at this higher level,’’ Suttie said. ‘‘It’s very hard to judge when we’ll hit our peak this season because some pick up the experience really quick.’’ Casey Cavaliers division 2 men recorded a 73-63 victory over the Giants as they shot to the top of the ladder and kept their unbeaten record intact. Dylan Wayman led the scoring for the Cavs with 17 points and Sean McKinnon scored 12 and dragged down 11 rebounds. The Giants were best served by Jordan Harding, who played a lone hand at times to finish with 25 points and 16 rebounds. The Casey Cavaliers division 2 women lost 54-58 to Coburg Giants with Leah Swain doing everything in her power to change the result.

against Ballarat that it would be good to keep that momentum going. ‘‘We’ll be keeping up our training all week and are very lucky that the AIS squad is coming down to Melbourne. We’ll play a full, proper game against them on Monday, then train on Thursday and play Saturday.’’ Maxfield said her players looked forward to playing in a different venue and against the Waves, who had stamped themselves as the early premiership favourite. ‘‘It’s a really good venue and fairly easy to get to with the new roads heading to Frankston. Heading out that way is not as big a deal as it used to be and our two sides match up very well even though they haven’t lost a game yet. The Waves are represented in the Victorian under-19 team by Meg Ross. Julia Smith is playing in the state under-17 team. Waves division 1 player Jess Whitford is an assistant coach with the under-19 state team. — Brad McGrath and Roy Ward

CASEY Comets’ strong start to the FFV State League 3 season continued on Saturday with a 1-0 win over Heatherton United at the Bosnia and Herzegovina Centre. The Comets broke the deadlock in the 36th minute when Matthew Morris-Thomas was chopped down in the box and the penalty was converted by John McCluskie. Comets coach Stan Webster said it was a tough atmosphere with a vocal home crowd turning out for the first game played under lights at the Bosnia and Herzegovina Centre. ‘‘It was a tough place to go and get a win,’’ he said. ‘‘There was a big crowd and it was the first game under the new floodlights. ‘‘The lights were really good but the ground was a bit bumpy.’’ The Comets’ defensive half was rock solid all day with Heatherton United struggling to make any opportunities. Morris-Thomas had a goal disallowed in the 70th minute, giving Heatherton United a sniff of an unlikely victory. ‘‘After that they lifted a little bit and maybe thought they could win,’’ Webster said. ‘‘Defensively the team was really solid but we’ve got to try and create a few more chances. ‘‘If we could win 1-0 every week we would take it but it is tough to do, so we need to try and be a bit more creative.’’ The Comets’ reserves squandered a 2-0 lead to go down 2-3 to Heatherton United in the earlier game. — Brad McGrath

Swans draw a blank CASEY-South Melbourne failed to have any players named in the team of the year at the Cricket Victoria awards on Thursday night. The selectors named Tom Donnell, Dean Russ, Graeme Rummans (captain), Solomon Mire, Lloyd Mash, Ian Holland, Brenton McDonald, David Alleyne, Rhys Adams, Marc Carson, Mark Stafford and Bryce McGain in the top 12 players. McDonald, brother of Victoria and Australian star Andrew McDonald, won the Ryder Medal as best-and-fairest player of the season, polling 37 votes. The former Richmond all-rounder, who crossed to Melbourne this season, held off Rummans on 29 votes. Mash, Matt Chasemore, Holland and Trent Lawford polled 28 votes to finish equal third. Brunswick Park captain Emma Inglis won the best and fairest medal for women’s Premier Cricket. Box Hill star Meg Lanning was selected as captain of the women’s team of the Season which featured Elyse Villani, Inglis, Tammy Norquay, Kelly Applebee, Anna Lanning, Emily Smith, Alana King, Emma Kearney, Emma Gallagher, Alex Hartley and Laura Croft. Ringwood’s Jackson Freeman won the second XI player of the season. Melbourne’s Tristan Larter and Ringwood’s Sam Wade won the third and fourth XI awards respectively.
