We’re sorry: landfill operator generation, which has been the source of the odour. It will carry out six-monthly aerial infrared monitorings to detect gas emission hot spots and report to the EPA and the community every three months. SITA will also plant trees along the South Gippsland Highway to screen the tip and contribute $100,000 to a local environment project to restore a degraded area in Casey within the next two months. The EPA will help the company identify relevant projects and the community will be consulted at a meeting to be held by the EPA at the end of October. SITA estimated the cost of complying with the undertakings at about $800,000. The company’s Victorian general manager Daniel Fyfe said the undertaking was a more effective mechanism than court proceedings as it promoted advanced landfill management practices and contributed to the community rather than to state coffers. ‘‘Operational processes for the landfill have been reviewed, with smaller cells, shorter fill-

THE operator of the Hampton Park landfill has formally apologised to neighbours of the tip for unacceptable odours, and pledged to do better in the future. The apology is part of an enforceable undertaking ordered by the Environment Protection Authority following more than 600 resident complaints in the past year. As part of the undertaking, SITA Australia will commission an independent research study into the health impacts of the landfill. The study will be scoped by EPA and the Department of Health, conducted by RMIT University and reviewed by the CSIRO. It will include an extension of the air sampling and analysis being undertaken by the EPA around the landfill. The undertaking, which was signed by the EPA on Friday week, includes actions SITA must carry out over the next three years to improve operations and manage landfill gas

ing times and increased landfill gas management being introduced for the first time in a Victorian landfill facility,’’ he said. Hampton Park Progress Association treasurer Tony O’Hara questioned the sincerity of the company’s apology, in which it stated: ‘‘The company regrets that the community may have been adversely impacted by the emission of offensive odours . . .’’ ‘‘The use of the words ‘may have’ does not indicate an acceptance of responsibility,’’ Mr O’Hara said. He was also disappointed that the EPA had not contacted the association and other affected groups when it released the undertaking. ‘‘I just hope it has an effect. By the end of September we are supposed to stop smelling odours from the tip,’’ he said. SITA will amend its licence to reflect the requirements of the undertaking.

Gran’s heartbreak A Cranbourne grandmother has made a tearful plea to burglars who robbed her this week: just return the camera card, which has hundreds of photos of her grandchildren taken over the years. Heather, a grandmother of 10, said thieves ransacked her Cameron Street house between 10am and 3pm last Wednesday while she was volunteering at the Salvation Army depot three doors away. They took a TV set she had saved for six months to buy, a box of Skylander toys she had been buying throughout the year for Christmas gifts for her grandchildren, and her camera. The thieves even stripped her bed and took a new jar of coffee. Anyone who wants to help Heather can call the Weekly on 9238 7649 or email cwatson@mmpgroup.com.au.

Include candidates’ brochures Casey Council candidates Neil Lucas and Gary Rowe are both former state Liberal MPs, and many others, I fear, are either running mates or Liberal-aligned. It is ridiculous to have to fight against all these high-profile candidates and resources. Council is supposed to be for locals to run, to ensure locals have a strong chance of winning — and then by injecting true community

needs through the council to benefit the community, not political parties. The Victorian Electoral Commission mails out ballot packs to every voter. Why not even the playing field by including a brochure of every candidate? Steve Beardon, Lynbrook, candidate for River Gum Ward

Council rates not affordable Casey’s rates are out of touch and out of the reach of young families and pensioners. This council has slugged us ratepayers far more than is currently affordable by struggling families. Last week, a councillor informed the council that one resident’s rates bill had gone from approximately $4000 to $30,000 because of a change in zones. I know of a people on single incomes who are paying 6 per cent of their weekly wages for their rates bill. Council needs to provide rate relief for pensioners and a monthly payment option to lighten the load required every three months under the current system.

TAFE help praised as the cuts hit home BY PAULINA OLSZANKA A STUDENT at Chisholm Institute told of the difference TAFE had made to his life as students and teachers met politicians last week to discuss the impact of cuts to TAFE funding. Stuart Rogers, who studies accounting at Chisholm’s Berwick campus, said his teachers had supported him through three hospital stays and helped him complete the outstanding units of his course. ‘‘I firmly believe that if I was at university, I wouldn’t have received the support I’ve received here at TAFE,’’ Mr Rogers said. ‘‘I’m so grateful. It’s been really helpful to get the skills I need in a mentored environment.’’ Mr Rogers formed part of a group of students, teachers and union delegates who met the federal Tertiary Education Minister Chris Evans and La Trobe federal Labor MP Laura Smyth at Chisholm’s Berwick campus last Wednesday. Chisholm Institute plans to raise course fees by about 70 per cent and slash 220 jobs across its six campuses after losing $30 million in funding.

With many teachers employed on a casual basis, staff estimate as many as 400 jobs may be on the line. Mr Rogers’ teacher, Lyn Smith, said the course she taught had effectively been cut from the curriculum. ‘‘I’m in my 50s. I’m at the age where I can’t stand up against all these younger people. I’m going to have to spend the next 10 years of my life trying to find work,’’ she said. TAFE teacher Robert Vidas, who convened the meeting, said a cut in the liberal arts curriculum would hurt the community. ‘‘We’re creating a socio-economic time bomb out here in the outer suburbs. They’re just going to become ghettos. ‘‘TAFE is the dam that holds back the flood. Now that dam’s been breached.’’ Senator Evans said the wrong areas were being targeted by the TAFE cuts. ‘‘Although there are trade jobs, it needs to be acknowledged the biggest job growth area is in health or social services,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s going to impact negatively on the community. TAFE is often the thing that

Life lesson: Stuart Rogers, centre front, spoke eloquently of his TAFE experiences when he met federal politicians at Chisholm Institute’s Berwick campus last week. Picture: Gary Sissons gets people back into the community.’’ The state Higher Education and Skills Minister, Peter Hall, said last week the state government had committed an additional $1 billion over the next four years to tertiary training.

He said the government remained committed to providing industry-relevant training, through increases in subsidies to critical trades, apprenticeship studies, skill shortage industries and expensive and intensive areas of study.

COUNCILELECTION2012

Candidates claim election stacked with dummies WITH 85 candidates standing for Casey Council — by far the highest number for any council in Victoria — it would be tempting to see it as a sign that democracy is alive and well. But some candidates fear the numbers indicate the opposite. They say a large number of candidates are dummies standing for election simply to direct preferences to particular candidates. Of the 85 candidates, 13 have not included any contact details for the media or voters, which usually indicates they are not serious about being elected. Returning officer Ian Herron said it was not compulsory to provide contact details, but electoral officers did alert all candidates to do so. ‘‘Some choose not to do so.’’ Sitting councillor Kevin Bradford said his ward, Mayfield, was so heavily stacked with dummy candidates he had virtually no chance of being re-elected. He suggested raising the nomination fee, currently $250, to $1000. ‘‘At least that would make them think twice.’’ Mayor Sam Aziz said the situation in Four Oaks Ward — with 22 candidates — was ridiculous. He claimed at least three candidates were standing as dummy candidates to get former

councillor Rob Wilson back on to the council. The Weekly attempted to contact the three candidates named by Cr Aziz but could not get through on the phone numbers they had provided. Candidates had until Friday to announce who

‘I’m not going to be anyone’s puppet.’ — Jamie Kenmure would get their preferences and the pattern will become clearer once these are listed on the Victorian Electoral Commission website. Last week was spent wheeling and dealing to sort out the best preference deals. Mayfield Ward candidate Jamie Kenmure said Casey mayor Sam Aziz advised him to preference sitting councillor Amanda Stapledon, and Cr Stapledon rang him about an hour later to ask for his support. ‘‘We were not even two hours into the campaign and I was getting bombarded. ‘‘I thought — let me work it out for myself. I’m not going to be anyone’s puppet.’’

Last-minute rush to BY CATHERINE WATSON

THEIR RESPONSES

CASEY voters will have their work cut out sorting through record fields of candidates making their pitch for election to Casey Council. Returning officer Ian Herron said there was a last-minute rush of nominations to meet the deadline, at noon last Tuesday. Most candidates were reluctant to show their hand too early and left it to the last two days, with 30 enrolling on Monday and another 30 on Tuesday morning. Candidates could fill in their details online but they had to present in person at the electoral office, in the old Cranbourne Shire offices, to complete their nomination. A record 85 candidates are standing, more than 60 per cent up on the 52 nominations for the previous election in 2008. The most hotly contested of the six wards is Four Oaks, with 22 nominations, including current ward councillors Shar Balmes and Beverley Hastie and three former councillors, Rob Wilson, Paul Richardson and Karen Baxter. Sixteen candidates, including sitting councillors Wayne Smith and Lynette Keleher, and former councillors Steve Beardon and Angela Dunleavy, are contesting in River Gum Ward. Eighteen candidates — including incumbent

ward councillor Judy Owen, former councillor Mick Morland and former Berwick Council CEO and former state Liberal MP Neil Lucas — are contesting Edrington Ward. The former Liberal MP for Cranbourne, Gary Rowe, is standing in Mayfield ward, along with current ward councillors Amanda Stapledon and Kevin Bradford. Eleven candidates are contesting Springfield ward, including mayor Sam Aziz and sitting councillor Bob Halsall. Cr Aziz told the Weekly he was ‘‘the underdog’’ in the race because there tended to be a high turnover of councillors. Incumbent councillor Geoff Ablett faces off against three candidates in Balla Balla ward. Mr Herron said ballot papers would be sent out to voters from October 9-11.

FEATURESTORY The dingy op shops of the past are long gone, replaced by brightly lit retail centres frequented by collectors and others who enjoy the thrill of the chase. CATHERINE WATSON reports. Pictures by LUCY DI PAOLO.

Op shoppers share the thrills A

sk op shoppers about their best buy and they get a dreamy look. For Lyn Parsonage, manager of Cranbourne’s Vinnies store, it was a little toby jug. ‘‘It was one of those quirky little things. I tend to like the older, antique things.’’ For me, it was a hand-made, double-sided coat, purple silk on the outside, fine black wool on the inside. I bought it for $10 from the Brotherhood of St Laurence store at Pakenham almost 10 years ago and happily rediscover it each winter as the cold descends. For Joelle Hodges, a student, op shopping is about cheap prices and vintage clothing. She’s always looking for fun pieces she will enjoy wearing. The pleasure for her is rediscovering clothes on their second time around just as they come back into vogue on the fashion merry-goround. Her best find? ‘‘A red cord jacket.’’ Her mother, Vicki, accompanying her on a school-holiday expedition to Vinnies Cranbourne store, recalls it. ‘‘It was something I would have worn as a teenager myself,’’ she says. In fact, not long ago, the mother and daughter visited an op shop in Langwarrin and Joelle picked out three items — all had been donated the previous week by Vicki. ‘‘I made her put them back,’’ she says. For Janet Morris, who volunteers at Vinnies Cranbourne store, it’s the thrill of the chase — never knowing what she will find when she walks into an op shop. ‘‘It’s the first thing I visit when I’m in a new town,’’ she says. Now that she works on the other side of the counter in Vinnies, she can see the social benefits as well. She volunteered five years ago when she moved to Cranbourne and didn’t know anyone. ‘‘I thought it would help me meet people and make friends.’’ It certainly did that. She also enjoyed the work, sorting donations and serving on the counter. She’s got a part-time job now but still volunteers every Monday. Lyn Parsonage is the only paid employee at Vinnies Cranbourne but there are 80 volunteers. She says the store couldn’t operate without them. A lot of them come to perform their Centrelink obligations for a Newstart allowance, but they tend to stay far longer than their allotted hours. The brightly lit store is gearing up for the spring racing carnival with glamorous window displays and mannequins sporting outfits ranging from tasteful stripes for the mature woman to a hot pink number for the young at heart. Of course, there are the hats and shoes to match them. Lyn says the professional window dressing is the work of a young man who presented himself recently as part of the work-for-the-dole program. ‘‘I asked him what he did and he said he was a merchandiser! He’s wonderful. And we have a lady who has been doing our mannequins for many years. We’re very fortunate.” Last week, Kerryn Caulfield, the CEO of the

Ms Parsonage says Vinnies Cranbourne store hasn’t noticed a fall-off in donations but goodquality stock is always useful. Donating is a win for everyone, she says. It’s a chance to get rid of your fashion mistakes, you’re helping people buy good clothes at affordable prices, you’re reducing waste by recycling and profits are ploughed back into the local community to help people in need. Asked about memorable donations, she recalls a woman donating a house lot of modern Italian

furniture worth about $9000. It was bought as a job lot by a woman who had just built a big house in Narre Warren. At the other end of the scale, this month she sold a lounge suite from the 1890s that needed restoring. ‘‘That sold within two days, I think to a collector,’’ Ms Parsonage said. Professionals and other collectors are regulars. ‘‘Sometimes we don’t realise it’s valuable and they get that elusive bargain.’’ But they try not to let the good stuff go too cheaply. She has built up her valuer skills over the past three years and, if she’s in doubt, calls on one of the antique valuers or auction houses for an estimate. She was always an antique buyer and op shopper but says she has friends who wouldn’t dream of visiting an op shop. She believes that’s a hangover from the days when op shops were dark, dingy and crowded shops full of mustysmelling old clothes that had probably been

THE bane of every op shop is dumping: the people who come after hours and drop their ‘‘stuff’’ at an op shop. Last year, Australia’s charity op shops spent many millions of dollars dumping 88,000 tonnes of unusable donations, everything from filthy mattresses and old analog television sets to broken-down furniture and dirty clothing. The mystery is why anyone would think the op shops want this stuff — why they don’t put it in their rubbish bins or call Casey Council to pick up the old TVs and mattresses (Casey residents get two free hard rubbish pickups a year). Cranbourne Vinnies manager Lyn Parsonage says the increase in dumping is demoralising for volunteers, devaluing their hard work by reducing the profits that should be going back into the local community. Last week, the state government announced $1.5 million funding for charity op shops to offset the cost of taking dumped items to landfills. Another $500,000 will be provided for measures such as closed-circuit television cameras to help prevent illegal dumping.

donated by the relatives of people who had died. Those days are long gone, she says. Op shops are really like normal stores now. In fact, she’ll let you into a secret. Many of their donations have never been worn. That’s right — they’re so new they still have their labels. ‘‘I think there is a lot of impulse buying,’’ she says, ‘‘or people buy at sales. It’s only when they get home they find something doesn’t suit them or doesn’t fit.’’ And that’s the real beauty of op shops: one woman’s fashion disaster is another woman’s fashion triumph.

Charities fill gap as families feel crunch BY CATHERINE WATSON RELIEF services in Cranbourne report a rising tide of poverty, with families struggling to pay basic bills and seeking help to put food on the table. Food vans operated by the Uniting Church and St Vincent de Paul now serve meals in Cranbourne every night to meet the need. The co-ordinator of the Uniting Church van, Peter Kreun, said they were seeing some very desperate people. ‘‘Last night a bloke walked in and said he hadn’t eaten for four days,’’ Mr Kreun said. ‘‘He told us his story. He said he was looking after his kids but he couldn’t look after himself as well. ‘‘We gave him a hamburger — he said he loved it but he hadn’t eaten for so long it almost made him sick.’’ The manager of the Salvation Army’s Cranbourne depot, Kerry Jose, said up to 30 families a day were seeking help for basic food items, and the number was growing.

‘‘Things are getting tighter and tighter for a lot of people,’’ she said. ‘‘They are just your average families, people who are not receiving benefits and who don’t qualify for a healthcare card. ‘‘They are generally working people with mortgages or rent taking up a huge percentage of their income.’’ Ms Jose said many more people were seeking help to pay their gas and electricity bills. ‘‘We apply for a utility relief grant if they’re eligible or set up a time payment facility.’’ The Salvos are also seeing more homeless people who come in to use the showers and get food. ‘‘While some are couch surfing or living in boarding houses, others are sleeping in tents.’’ Ms Jose said the Salvos provided them with shower packs, a change of clothes and what clothes they could. ‘‘But it’s not easy for them to cook when they’re homeless.’’ She said the nightly food vans were providing essential help for these people.

Comfort food: Volunteers Silvia, Heather, Chris and Erica help prepare food packs at the Salvation Army’s Cranbourne depot.

FOR an Endeavour Hills-based charity, the 42-kilometre Melbourne Marathon is a personal mission to find a cure to a cruel childhood cancer. Khush Harris is one of more than 185 runners joining as a team for her charity Isabella and Marcus Paediatric Brainstem Tumour Fund for next month’s event. In 2008, Ms Harris’s six-year-old daughter Isabella died just six months after being diagnosed with the brainstem tumour , also called diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG). There is no cure for the degenerative disease, which occurs mainly in children aged 5-9. Most die within a year of diagnosis, having rapidly lost their ability to walk, talk and feed. ‘‘It’s a nasty way to die,’’ Ms Harris said. ‘‘They remain ‘locked in’ and it’s extremely scary for them. ‘‘A lot of families have gone through the most horrendous time. In the last stages, you actually want your child to die.’’

Mr Harris wants to involve more than 200 runners from Greater Dandenong and Casey into the team with the aim of funding a Melbournebased research unit to study DIPG. She and husband Robert De Rose founded a charity in 2010 to treat the disease with another bereaved couple, Daniela and Tony Ruberto whose five-year-old son Marcus also died from DIPG. Their hope is to raise $5 million for a worldclass, permanent laboratory that will study the disease. So far, the charity has raised $160,000. Ms Harris wants the unit to be based in the under-construction Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Parkville. The centre’s patron is Education Minister Martin Dixon and its ambassador is star basketballer Andrew Bogut, who attended Thomas Mitchell Primary School in Endeavour Hills, the same school as Isabella. Many of the teachers from the school will take part in the marathon. The event on October 14 comprises a three-

INBRIEF Councillor to appeal finding Casey councillor Kevin Bradford will appeal to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal to quash a finding of serious misconduct made against him by a councillor conduct panel last month. The finding relates to allegations that he obtained and disclosed confidential information on the 2009 Cranbourne GP run. The panel ordered him to take two months’ leave of absence from the council from September 18. Cr Bradford said the panel finding had made him more determined to stand for re-election. “This whole process has been a calculated and personally motivated attack against me in an attempt to ensure I am removed from the council.’’

Help sought on car fire Neighbours heard the sound of a vehicle driving away shortly after a car exploded in flames in Cranbourne. The car, which was in a driveway in Silverstone Avenue, was damaged in the attack, which happened about 3.30am on September 17. Anyone with information should call Casey CIU’s Detective Senior Constable Justin Stanton on 9705 3111 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Car goes off the road A young woman was taken to hospital after the car she was driving ran off the Baxter-Tooradin Road about 9.30am last Sunday week. Police blocked the road as five CFA units attended. There was a

another accident about a kilometre away about 6.30am the previous day.

Bid to make road safer Casey Council will seek a meeting with VicRoads to improve safety of the Lesdon Avenue exits onto Thompson Road and the South Gippsland Highway. Cr Amanda Stapledon said there was wide concern in the community about the dangers of exiting the horseshoe road. In March, a 73-yearold resident of Lesdon Avenue died after a collision between his car and a truck at the intersection with the South Gippsland Highway.

Kooweerup college steals the show Kooweerup Secondary College won first prize in the recent City of Casey’s Schools on Stage musical extravaganza. The college won $2000 for its performance in an original show titled Kisses. Beaconhills College was runner-up with its performance of songs from The Wiz.

Timbarra gets a stadium The Timbarra community’s wait for a stadium is over. The three-court stadium, at Timbarra P-9 College, has a kitchen, kiosk, toilets, change rooms and showers, umpires room, storage, office and multi-purpose room. It was funded by Casey Council, the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Sport and Recreation Victoria and the federal government.

Acting the goat is part of the buzz BY CATHERINE WATSON ake it from Riannon Berkeley: there’s nothing quite like fun and games to develop skills — in theatre and life. Berkeley, a Langwarrin actor, director, script writer and theatre games director, will run a theatre games program for 13- to 16-year-olds at Hampton Park library this week. Theatre games were originally designed to develop actors’ skills and help them become more familiar with their fellow cast members but have now become an enjoyable activity in themselves. ‘‘Where else could you yell at the top of your voice for the police or have a pitched battle with rolled-up newspapers?’’ Berkeley says. ‘‘There’s nothing quite like doing something funny as part of a group and having everyone laughing with you.’’ Earlier this year, she ran a script writing program at Narre Warren library and wanted to

T

offer something more physical for those less literally inclined. She describes theatre games as a combination of party games, play acting and improvised story telling. ‘‘There’s a lot of activity around play acting, movement and quick thinking. Taking those risks can give you such an adrenalin rush.’’ It can also be life-changing. ‘‘I was quiet an awkward clumsy person before I did this. I had so much fun I’d leave the sessions buzzing,’’ Berkeley said. ‘‘You don’t need acting experience — it’s all about having fun and trying something new.’’ Theatre games for 13- to 16-year-olds, Hampton Park library, 3.30-5pm on Thursday. Book online at tinyurl.com/cclcevents.

Fun and games: Riannon Berkeley found theatre games life-changing.

Baptism of fire for Rangers young gun NEW Dandenong Rangers signing Sara Blicavs has come through the gruelling tests of preseason and is ready for life with the WNBL champions. After two WNBL seasons with the Australian Institute of Sport, the 19 year old has been asked to play power forward and centre due to the lack of import centre Krista Phillips and other Rangers talls, while at training she has struggled to keep up with the intensive fitness work demanded by Rangers coach Mark Wright. Yet Blicavs said she still loved being a part of the Rangers and learning the realities of WNBL basketball. ‘‘This preseason is going to be the death of me,’’ she joked. ‘‘It’s been tiring but I love training hard and getting back into things. ‘‘The girls have been awesome; I’ve fit in so well and they are a very accepting bunch.’’ With several of the Rangers missing from the side during the WNBL preseason tournament at Dandenong Stadium earlier this month, Blicavs got plenty of minutes to run herself up to WNBL speed.

But the majority of those minutes were in the post, rather than her favoured guard and small forward positions. With taller players such as Phillips and Carley Mijovic returning to the team, Blicavs is getting used to moving back outside. ‘‘I will play inside a little bit at times, like when I have mismatches or when we are missing players,’’ she said. The Rangers are returning the core of their championship team with Olympians Kath Macleod, Jenna O’Hea and Phillips all back along with Steph Cumming, Tegan Cunningham and Alison Downie. O’Hea could miss the first four or five matches due to WNBA play-off commitments with the LA Sparks. Blicavs and best friend Mijovic join the team fresh from the AIS and will face a battle to earn minutes in the team. But for Blicavs, she has embraced the battle to prove herself to her new team. ‘‘Our first training was a killer,’’ she said. ‘‘It sounds corny but I idolise those players above me in our team. ‘‘They show me the level I have to reach to be

up with them. You want to beat them at training and they are so knowledgeable that it’s helped me a lot.’’ Blicavs has also adjusted quickly to the demands of Wright, who wants to take his side to a second straight title against Lauren Jackson’s Canberra Capitals and a reloaded Bulleen. ‘‘He is very forward, which is great,’’ she said. ‘‘You need coaches who aren’t afraid to speak their mind because you need to know when you are going good or doing bad. ‘‘He is such a friendly and funny person, then as soon as training starts his mood changes and he becomes angry and intense for two hours, then straight after he is fine.’’ When it comes to her role this season, Blicavs has no idea how she will fit into the Rangers team but is committed to giving her all no matter what she is asked to do. ‘‘I’m trying to prove I’m worthy of playing some minutes but I can’t choose what happens. It’s totally up to Mark,’’ she said. The WNBL season starts on Friday night when the Rangers host Bulleen Boomers at Dandenong Stadium at 7pm.

Hub gives club an inside run

Step up: Casey-South Melbourne captain Jake Best, fielding, has called on his batsmen to lift this season including opener Rohan Blandsford, pictured left. Pictures: Gary Sissons/Sam Stiglec

Time to step up, skipper tells Bloods’ top order BY ROY WARD CASEY South Melbourne captain Jake Best has put the challenge to his fellow Bloods batsmen ahead of the Premier Cricket season. Best has demanded the Bloods’ top order take the side to the Premier Cricket finals. With almost the same top order returning this term, Best said his batsmen had no excuses not to have a successful summer. ‘‘We had a pretty young group last year,’’ he said, ‘‘so with another year under our belts we will be better. ‘‘But it’s time for the batsmen to stand up. ‘‘Our bowlers have been doing a lot of work over the past few seasons. ‘‘The key is for the bats to step up because we are striving for finals. ‘‘Guys like Rohan Blandford, Jolyon Lever and myself need to have big years because we have been around for a while now.’’ The Bloods’ main loss over the off-season is left-arm bowler Rodney Bird, while Jack Ryder Medallist Clive Rose will again be with the club after looking at his options interstate. Best also did nothing to hose down rumours former Sheffield Shield fast bowler Damien Wright will play some matches for the Bloods this season. Best said Wright’s playing status for this season was yet to be confirmed. Though the club was unlikely to bring an imported player in, Wright may still wear the red

Herrick may also makes appearances for the club in the opening rounds of the season, depending on their elite level commitments.

CRANBOURNE has become a leading harness racing training hub with the official opening of the innovative $1.5 million Cranbourne Harness Racing Training Centre on Tuesday. Racing Minister Denis Napthine officially opened the new training and stabling complex accompanied by representatives of Harness Racing Victoria, the Cranbourne Harness Racing Club and the City of Casey. He said the unique centre was made possible through a $918,000 state government grant. ‘‘The centre is a unique addition to the Victorian harness racing industry, helping to reduce the cost of starting out in the industry by providing new trainers with an opportunity to lease a number of boxes rather than purchase their own,’’ Dr Napthine said. ‘‘This facility can accommodate up to 48 horses, with the potential to grow. The influx of new trainers to the facility will boost jobs in the local area with extra business for feed merchants, vets, farriers and drivers. ‘‘Harness racing is undergoing a renewal in Victoria including big crowds at country cup meetings, the return of racing to many country tracks and new measures to internationalise feature races. ‘‘In fact, despite only a handful of horses already on site, the new training facility has already produced two wins with Stylish Jasper, trained by Viv Tomren and Charlie Wootton, recently taking the spoils at Tabcorp Park Melton and Cranbourne.’’ Set on 2.5 hectares, professional and hobby trainers can work together in the communal centre with access to a state-of-the-art 48 barnstabling complex, each with its own day yard. The stables directly link to the Cranbourne harness racing track and also to 1.2 kilometres of bridle paths. The complex features major advancements in training with two new specially constructed sand training tracks, a 1,200-metre jogging track, a 600-metre track for slow work, an eight-horse walking machine, horse pool and a lunging area. Club chief executive David Scott said it was indebted to the government and HRV for their support. ‘‘Our club believes that the creation of an industry-owned and -operated facility such as this will provide a sustainable operating model for trainers and importantly, offers a vital entry point for our next generation of participants to make their mark on harness racing,’’ he said. ‘‘At the same time, this project promises to secure the future of harness racing in the southeastern region of the state and as a club we are proud to have been involved in its creation.’’ HRV chairman Ken Latta congratulated the club, saying: ‘‘With support from the Coalition government and HRV, the club has been able to deliver an outstanding training centre which will assist in the development of the sport in the region. This project is a model that we would like to see replicated elsewhere in Victoria.’’ The state government provided $918,307 to the project with HRV and CHRC jointly providing $636,693. The City of Casey also provided $20,000 for perimeter fencing.

Contenders line up for shot There has been an influx of talent into the Dandenong and District Cricket Association, with several teams looking to take the next step. Springvale South again looks to be the team to beat but Dandenong West and Buckley Ridges boast formidable line-ups. BRAD McGRATH casts his eye over the competition. Dandenong District Cricket Association Turf 1 Berwick Coach: Jarrod Goodes Captain: Jarrod Goodes Last year: Premier Ins: Ryan Hercules (West Indies), Tanner Stanton (Frankston Heat) Outs: James Davies (England), Andrew Perrin (Casey-South Melbourne), Gavan Wills (retired), Cam McDonald (retired) Final Word: The Bears have lost some serious talent with long-time import James Davies not returning and strike bowler Andrew Perrin stepping up to the higher level again. But the retirements of veterans Gavan Wills and Cam McDonald could hit the hardest. Much is going to rest on import Ryan Hercules, with the West Indian coming with huge wraps. Dandenong West President: Jason Goodes Coach: Justin Stanton Captain: Justin Stanton Last year: Eighth Ins: David Weerden (Sydney), Alex Roberts (Bundoora), Zac Houghton (Casey-South Melbourne), Ryan Buckley (Durham, UK), Kieran Rodgers (Beaconsfield), Justin Stanton (Beaconsfield) Outs: Nil Final Word: Dandenong West desperately needed to address their batting over the off-season and new coach Justin Stanton has wasted little time. Former captain David Weerden has returned to the club while Roberts, Houghton and Englishman Ryan Buckley will all have an impact on the DDCA. North Dandenong President: Glenn Nicholls Coach: Roshan De Silva Captain: Craig Gunawardane Last year: Seventh Ins: Roshan De Silva (HSD), Dean Gunawardane (Hawthorn-Monash), Bobby Gray (Springvale South), Alex Kerr (North Melbourne) Outs: James Byrnes (unavailable) Final Word: North Dandenong has recruited heavily including Hawthorn-Monash allrounder Dean Gunawardane, the brother of captain Craig. Roshan De Silva has taken the coach’s reins and will be a handy acquisition. After just missing the finals last season they will be desperate the push into the upper echelon of teams. The

Outs: Liam Coates (England) Final Word: Coomoora is aiming to be competitive in its first season in Turf 1 and maintain its position in the top flight. The newcomers have switched imports with Englishman Oliver Ashford replacing his countryman. Former Highett captain-coach Jake D’Atri is also a big inclusion for Coomoora. Much responsibility will fall onto captain Paul Hill at the top of the order.

Doveton’s gem: Doveton’s Ryan Hendy sends a delivery down last season. return of Gayan Sameera is also a huge boost. Buckley Ridges President: Keiran Watson Coach: Marc Calkin Captain: Marc Calkin Last year: Fifth Ins: Marc Calkin (Nightcliff), Greg Todd (New Zealand), Tom Rowe (Nottingham), Ben Watson (year off). Outs: Te Ahu Davis (Cranbourne), Chris Batchelor (England), Shane D’Rosario (Lynbrook). Final Word: Buckley Ridges is intent on making up for the disappointment of missing the finals

English import Tom Rowe comes to the club on the recommendation of former imports Paul Frank and Luke Fletcher.

Dinesh Kumar is the big recruit, having been on the Kings XI Punjab team in the Indian Premier League in recent seasons. Officer recruit Olly Brown should bolster the batting while Shane White has stepped into the coach’s position. Blake Pearson is seriously talented, having represented his state at a junior level.

Changing faces: Berwick has undergone significant change over the winter. They are pictured celebrating the Twenty20 premiership victory over Coomoora last season. Picture: Sam Stiglec

Coach: Shaun Grabert Captain: Wendell Perumal Last year: Fourth Ins: Wendell Perumal (HSD), Shaun Grabert (Casey-South Melbourne) Outs: Nil. Final Word: The inclusion of former star Wendell Perumal and Casey-South Melbourne wicketkeeper Shaun Grabert should significantly boost the Magpies. Nirmal Wickramarathna is one of the DDCA’s premier players and it’s hard to see his star waning. The Magpies can play finals. Heinz Southern Districts President: Brian Milne Coach: Robert Davies, Justin Davis Captain: Trevor Davies Last year: 10th Ins: Keith Perumal Outs: Wendell Perumal (Narre Warren), Roshan De Silva Final Word: HSD had a solid debut season in the Turf 1 competition last season and they would be expecting further improvement. Captain Wendell Perumal has left for Narre Warren after the club opted to go with star batsman Trevor Davies as skipper. Much responsibility will fall onto Davies and they will hope a number of their youngsters can step up. Springvale South President: Peter Lawler

Coach: Craig Slocombe Captain: Craig Slocombe Last year: Runners-up Ins: Jeevantha Kalatunga (Sri Lanka), Natheesa Perera (Sri Lanka) Outs: Suranjith De Silva (Sri Lanka) Final Word: Springvale South has taken full advantage of being able to have two imports with highly regarded Jeevantha Kalatunga and Natheesa Perera coming on board. The loss of De Silva is a blow but Kalatunga has more than 9000 first-class runs in Sri Lanka and should be an able replacement. Tim Ford, Jackson Sketcher and Jarrod Armitage are all talented youngsters who will continue to improve while the evergreen Craig Slocombe will again be a force. Hallam Kalora Park President: Ian Baker Coach: Johan Vorster Captain: Johan Vorster Last year: Sixth Ins: Nil Outs: Nil Final Word: Hallam-Kalora Park has been very quiet on the recruitment trail. South African Johan Vorster has taken over as coach from Rob Walton with other clubs showing interest in the highly rated import.

keeping him out.

Mordialloc President: Lance Draper Coach: Roger Young Captain: Stuart Squires Last year: 11th Ins: Andrew Niblett (South Africa/New Zealand) Outs: Nil Final Word: Mordialloc is expecting to improve from last season. The acquisition of South African Andrew Niblett should bolster both their batting and bowling. The return of Sri Lankan import Chathura Athokorala is huge while Tim Whiton should step up and play regular senior cricket this year. Star all-rounder Tim Kennedy is not expected to be seen until after Christmas with a serious football injury

Parkfield President: Darren Linton Coach: Jarrod Williamson Captain: Stephen Spoljaric Last year: Ninth Ins: Jarrod Williamson (Melbourne University), Rod Bird (Casey-South Melbourne) Outs: Hemantha Alles (Sri Lanka), Final Word: The acquisition of Casey-South Melbourne paceman Rod Bird is a huge pickup for Parkfield with the paceman set to be one of the premier bowlers in the DDCA. Former junior Jarrod Williamson has rejoined the club as coach after playing with Melbourne University. Any team that features Stephen Spoljaric will be hard to beat.
