Hearing tests? Sounds good epean Hearing is offering free hearing checks for adults and hearing aid trials of the new Verso hearing aids by Resound in May and June. The Verso hearing aid, worn in each ear, works to help eliminate background noise. ‘‘Hearing aids worn in each ear are able to focus on the speaker and not the background noise,’’ says Nepean Hearing’s David Beer. ‘‘Often the signs of a hearing problem creep up very gradually over a number of years. Voices become indistinct and some television programs are difficult to hear. You may miss out on the first words of a sentence and then the whole conversation can be lost. ‘‘We’re offering a 20 per cent dis-

count on Verso hearing aid purchases. Nepean Hearing offers personalised services and the practice is staffed by university-trained audiologists. It’s a fully OHS accredited provider.’’ Mr Beer says there are a full range of digital hearing aids for pensioners and private clients. ‘‘Our hearing aid prices, for private clients and pensioners who elect a top-up aid, are at least 20 per cent less than the larger clinics. ‘‘Pensioners and DVA clients can choose from a wide range of free of charge aids.’’ To arrange a hearing check or hearing aid trial, call Nepean Hearing at 10 Davey Street, Frankston, on 9783 7520. Nepean Hearing is also at 184 South Gippsland Highway, Cranbourne. Phone: 5996 1117.

Garden wisdom here in spades omerville Garden Supplies is offering generous monthly specials to help keep your garden in prime condition — as well as your bank account. Somerville Garden Supplies owner Mark Fulton is a Baxter resident who has been run the business for three years. ‘‘Although I took over the business in July three years ago, it is actually a fourth-generation business running for at least 25 years,’’ he said. Mr Fulton’s grandfather started the family traditional garden business by setting up Fultons in Hawthorn in 1954. ‘‘My dad and his two brothers took that over about 16 years ago, and about 10 years ago they bought Oasis in Wantirna,’’ Mr Fulton said. ‘‘Four years ago, dad and I set up Bayside in Cheltenham and when he retired, three years ago, I came and bought this place.’’ The business is operated by Mr Fulton, two

S

other full-timers and two casual staff. ‘‘My dad tries to help out here and there when he can during his retirement years.’’ Mr Fulton said there had been a noticeable growth in the business. ‘‘Reality television shows, such as The Block, inspire people to perform their own garden makeovers and are a huge factor in the business growth. ‘‘The people who are into DIY are a large part of our business and we’re more than willing to offer some advice on landscaping or general gardening to help them with their transformations.’’ Somerville Garden Supplies sells a variety of good quality products at a competitive price for residential and commercial premises. The products include a selection of palms including, Bangalo, Cocos, Chinese Windmill and Canary Island date palms.

ranbourne Hairhouse Warehouse, which opened 12 years ago, is keeping its trendy touch with new management. The store’s new manager Brooke Lambeth started managing the Cranbourne outlet early last year. ‘‘I’ve been hairdressing for about 27 years and had my own business in Lang Lang for about 14 years that I sold last October. After my first overseas trip, I started here in early February,’’ Ms Lambeth said. ‘‘I manage the salon and retail and have six girls on staff at the moment.’’ One point of pride for Ms Lambeth is the atmosphere at the Cranbourne store. ‘‘I love the fact that I’m working with an amazing bunch of girls. It’s got a really nice team feel, a good family feel to it. I love the busy hype and the challenge of keeping everything on schedule and keeping the girls up to date in the industry with all the training we do.’’ Tony Margaritis, the owner of the Cranbourne and Parkmore Hairhouse Warehouses, is proud of the success of the popular chainstore that specialises in hair products, body piercing, and

Owner Michael Pollock and his wife Jacinta opened the Melbourne’s Mower Centre in 2001 after a shopping trip to buy a mower. ‘‘We went to the store’s closing-down sale to buy a mower for ourselves and ended up talking to the owner about why the store was closing down and decided to buy it,’’ Mr Pollock said. The couple did not expect that the company would extend to another five stores, including the Red Shed Ride On Mower Superstore. Across the five stores, there are 32 staff members to help you buy the right product. Melbourne’s Mower Centre & The Red Shed Ride on Mower Superstore offer lawnmowers,

Harmony flourishes in fertile ground 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

Mosque row heads to tribunal BY CATHERINE WATSON THE controversial Doveton mosque is headed for a hearing at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal after its planning permit was declared invalid last week. Casey Council issued a permit for the mosque, in Green Street, earlier this month after the VCAT advised it had received no objections. However, at a brief hearing at the VCAT on Thursday, deputy commissioner Helen Gibson acknowledged that Catch the Fire Ministries, which plans to build its new church and head-

quarters next to the mosque site, had lodged an appeal within the required 21 days. She said the permit was therefore invalid and must be revoked. Ms Gibson apologised to the church group and the council for the error. Catch the Fire’s objection will be heard at the VCAT in July on a date yet to be set. Catch the Fire Ministry’s pastor Danny Nalliah said the church group would argue that the council failed to consider community concerns in approving the application for the mosque on March 12. Thirty objectors and more than 2000 petitioners opposed the mosque.

Mr Nalliah said that if the VCAT rejected the appeal against the mosque, the church intended to appeal to the High Court or Supreme Court. He welcomed Ms Gibson’s apology but said he was disappointed it had cost his church almost $2000 in professional fees to rectify the error. Under planning laws, the tribunal does not award or pay costs. Casey mayor Amanda Stapledon also welcomed VCAT’s apology, which she said cleared the council of all blame. It was the first time the council had experienced an error by the tribunal.

Another case of misinformation Two years ago misinformation was circulated in the community by a local resident suggesting that Casey Council wanted to establish a level crossing at Aylmer Road, Lynbrook. As a result, the then mayor, Cr Shar Balmes, sent a letter and brochure to residents clarifying that what the council wanted was an underpass. The misinformation campaign is now being repeated, with a letter to the editor from Julia Welham (Weekly, April 8) claiming that resident action was needed to stop the council building a level crossing at Aylmer Road. I can categorically clarify that: ■ The council’s advocacy efforts in relation to this matter are firmly focused on the state government contributing funding for an underpass. ■ The option of a level crossing is not being pursued by the council. ■ The state government is responsible for the provision of rail infrastructure. It is disappointing that some residents continue to peddle misinformation to the Lynbrook and Lyndhurst communities.

Narrow streets force parking fines Why should residents have to pay for extra car parking spaces after estates have been built? Why isn’t common sense used when an estate is planned? Do the developers not look at how wide the streets are? Sadly, these days it seems to be about squeezing the maximum number of houses into the smallest amount of space to make money, and the councils approve this. Then they fine residents for parking on nature strips in estates approved by the council. Leanne Clark (via web)

notify the council at the next ordinary meeting. It was also alleged that between February 8-May 3, 2011 Mr Tyler failed to disclose that the claim had been referred to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. The claim was settled in a mediated hearing at VCAT in 2011. The charge sheet states that Mr Tyler had a direct interest in whether the matter should be defended or settled, how much should be paid to settle the claim and whether the council should fund a legal defence. In April last year, a motion to sack Mr Tyler was defeated 6-5 but councillors voted to refer the matter to the Municipal Association of Victoria for an independent investigation into the council’s handling of the claim. The matter was referred to the Local Government Inspectorate. Mr Tyler continues as Casey CEO.

Rail plan leaves Casey in cold

Homes sought for seized border collies

BY CATHERINE WATSON

CASEY Council has an unusual problem: finding good homes for 38 border collies. The 27 puppies and 11 adult dogs were seized from a Cannons Creek business last month. The council has charged the owner of the business, John Tresize, with 51 counts of conducting a domestic animal business on unregistered premises along with other offences under the Domestic Animal Act and Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Act. The dogs have been in the Casey pound, at the Lost Dogs Home in Cranbourne, since they were seized. In Dandenong Magistrates Court on Friday, the council was granted an order to rehouse the dogs after May 10, allowing the 21 days stipulated under the act. The case against Mr Tresize, which began last Thursday, will continue in court next month. The case is the second prosecution in Victoria under Oscar’s Law, named after a puppy rescued from a dog-breeding ‘factory’ in central Victoria in 2011. Both cases have been brought by the council. Residents considering adopting the dogs and puppies can register an expression of interest by emailing the council at caseycc@casey .vic.gov.au. — Catherine Watson

‘We had hoped the state government would have made a commitment to undertake works to Casey’s train network in the short term.’ —Amanda Stapledon

VICTORIA’S latest rail strategy has no plans to cater for up to 200,000 new residents expected to move into Casey by 2036. Casey’s two long-awaited stations are not even mentioned in the strategy, which has projections for the next 20 years. Almost all the projects to benefit the growth suburbs will occur in the west, including new stations at Tarneit and Wyndham Vale. There is no mention of stations at Cranbourne East and Clyde to serve the tens of thousands of people now living in the area, with about 80,000 more expected in the next 20 years. Casey Council’s transport manager Paul Hamilton said the state government needed to reassess the rate of development in the south-east if it could not provide public transport to the area. ‘‘A plan of this calibre should effectively address the needs of Casey’s growth areas, and this strategy, in its current format, does not.’’ Casey mayor Amanda Stapledon said she was disappointed the strategy did not deliver the urgent public transport upgrades needed in Casey, particularly the new stations. ‘‘We had hoped the state government would have made a commitment to undertake works to

Casey’s train network in the short term. The state government has allocated vast amounts of land to be brought within the urban growth boundary, people have moved in and, ultimately, basic transport services are needed by residents including local buses, adequate roads and an accessible train network.’’

Over the next 20 years, patronage on the Cranbourne/Pakenham lines is projected to grow by at least 5 per cent a year — the highest rate in the state — but the network plan makes little provision for the anticipated growth. The only mention is an unspecified upgrade of the Dandenong line, but not the full duplication which is considered necessary to increase capacity. The strategy also fails to mention a projected rail freight link from Dandenong to the expanded Port of Hastings. ‘‘While the state government has made a commitment to progress plans for the Port of Hastings, it’s unfortunate that the strategy provides no detail as to how rail freight services will share the Dandenong/Pakenham corridor and link in the future to the Port of Hastings,’’ Mr Hamilton said.

FEATURESTORY Thefrontline MIKE Annett knows the trauma of soldiering at first and second hand — his father fought in New Guinea in World War II and as a regular soldier, Mr Annett was on peacekeeping duties. If peacekeeping sounds like a walk in the park, it’s misleading, says Mr Annett, the CEO of the Victorian branch of the RSL. In Rwanda, Australian soldiers on peacekeeping duties saw hundreds of people massacred. Even though they were armed, they could do nothing because of the guidelines under which the UN operates. ‘‘Partners don’t understand how the person they loved has changed so much,’’ Mr Annett says. ‘‘It’s a huge issue for them to deal with, quite apart from the effect on the children.’’ The experiences of earlier veterans were no less harrowing, he says. ‘‘The fellows who served in bomber command who flew at night over Germany. Half of them were killed. During the day they were back in Britain eating bacon and eggs and preparing to fly again that night knowing there was a high chance they would not return that night. You can’t even begin to imagine how it changed them.’’ When they returned from war, they were just expected to get on with things. ‘‘That’s why the RSL was so strong after Word War II. It was the only outlet for men to share their experiences. Whether they drank too much was another matter.’’

Peter Godfrey was proud to serve Australia, to stop the spread of Communism. ‘‘We were brainwashed,’’ he says. Picture: Daryl Gordon

Peter and Diane Godfrey, February 1970, when he was home on leave from Vietnam. He was ‘‘happy-go-lucky, laid back,’’ Diane says.

Nightmare on civvy street P

eter Godfrey sat at home one day with a bottle of whisky and a knife, weighing up life and death. He wasn’t crazy. He wasn’t even depressed. He just felt desperately tired of being alive. He chose to carry on, but many of his army mates chose differently. In 40 years, he knows of at least eight who killed themselves. The first suicide happened nine months after they got back from Vietnam. Many more happened in the 1980s and ’90s. Now he’s thinking of the boys coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan. ‘‘Us men, we’re brave and strong, we don’t cry,’’ he says, although his eyes are glistening with tears. ‘‘We get on with the job, but back home we’re still wired to kill.’’ There will be breakdowns and suicides, he predicts, and heartbreak for their partners and families and communities. Returned soldiers are a ticking time bomb. He should know. Twenty-five years after he returned from the war in Vietnam, he ended up in a psychiatric ward in the Repatriation Hospital. His wife Diane had to pick up the pieces. ‘‘She had to look after the house, the family and her own husband. I don’t know how she stuck it.’’ It took the doctors, nurses and psychiatrists years to put him back together again. Two years of intensive psychotherapy, 15 years of counselling. Step by step, day by day. It’s 18 months since he’s had to see his psychiatrist, but it’s still difficult. Every morning he says to himself, ‘‘Come on, Peter. Be happy. Smile.’’ He is sceptical now of old men who send young men to war. “Weapons of mass destruction — a load of hogwash. There’s companies making billions from war.’’ Peter was 21 when he was called up for national service in 1969. Back then he believed all the propaganda. He was proud to serve Australia, to stop the Communists. He and Diane got engaged before he left for Vietnam. He was 21, she was 17. They’d met at

Soldiers are trained to kill . . . then expected to settle back into ordinary life as though nothing has changed. CATHERINE WATSON talks to a veteran who spent 25 years trying to forget the past, before it all came back. the Dandenong Town Hall, where she was helping out in the men’s cloakroom. He was a sharpie, she recalls. Happy-go-lucky, laid back, one of the lads. ‘‘Nothing like he is now.’’ When he came back from Vietnam, he was different. Noises made him jumpy. You had to be careful of what you said. It was like walking on eggshells. When she saw him getting wound up she’d suggest he went for a walk. She asked him what the matter was but he didn’t say a lot and so she got on with things, pouring her time into their two children and the new house. ‘‘I did wonder if our marriage was going to last. It was really tough, for the kids as well. Unbeknown to me he started drinking while I was at work.’’ It wasn’t until he had his breakdown that she learnt a bit about what was going on. In the Repat, he was heavily sedated for a long time, just a shell of a man. At one point she doubted he could ever come back, but now she realises his doctors knew what they were doing. As for what happened in Vietnam, ‘‘I still don’t know exactly what happened. And I guess I don’t want to know’’. What happened, Peter says, is that he and all the other 20 year olds were programmed to kill. “The Viet Cong weren’t human. That’s how we were brainwashed. We hear about the things the Americans soldiers do to Afghans — urinating on bodies — and people say that couldn’t happen, but soldiers do strange things in war. As far as I know, Australian soldiers are no different.’’ He was an infantryman in Vietnam. The routine was four weeks in the jungle then 10 days back at base. The army supplied liquor at 1 cent a can so they’d come back and drink themselves

silly. Sometimes they went to Vung Tau, an R&R town where women and drugs were laid on for the soldiers. Then they’d head back into the jungle. ‘‘It was all about survival. You’re tired. You’re on duty 24 hours. We did ambushes. You see shadows, you see branches moving.’’ His first kill was a young Viet Cong soldier wearing a Ho Chi Minh shirt and shorts. The interpreter found a diary in the dead soldier’s pocket and read it. ‘‘I miss my mum and dad back home and I miss my fiancee ...’’ That sounds like me, Peter thought. ‘‘I can remember trying to get the blood off my hands. The earth is red in Vietnam. And nothing I did would get rid of this blood. I couldn’t sleep for 21⁄2 days.’’ More than 25 years later, when he was in the Repatriation Hospital, he told a psychiatric nurse some of what he had done. ‘‘Peter,’’ she said. ‘‘It wasn’t your fault.’’ He’d never thought of that possibility. For 25 years he’d blamed himself. He’d been in a prison and suddenly he’d been told the door was open. It didn’t fix everything but it started him on the way back. He still finds it hard to relate to civilians. Civilians don’t know — and he doesn’t want them to know. Most of the people he knew from the army are now on disability pensions. That’s the ones who haven’t died, either by suicide or from cancer that many believe is linked to exposure to Agent Orange, the defoliant used to clear the jungle. When Peter came back from Vietnam, his whole body and nervous system had changed. He married Diane soon after his return but never spoke about it. He couldn’t stand loud noises. He had trouble sleeping. He couldn’t go anywhere where there were Asian people. Even now if a

helicopter goes overhead, he crouches down. He had a full-time job, worked in a service station at the weekend and had a lawnmowing round. That was the only way he could cope. Go, go, go. The crunch point came when he hit his boss. He couldn’t remember it afterwards. He’d never been a violent man. Then it all started coming out. At 2.30 one morning he stood at the back of his house and watched enemy soldiers climbing over his fence, coming to murder Diane and the kids. Finally one day he told Diane, ‘‘There’s something wrong’’. It probably saved his life. Eventually, through the Department of Veterans Affairs, he got to see a doctor, who said, ‘‘Peter, you’ve got post traumatic stress disorder’’. ‘‘What a load of hogwash!’’ he said. But he knew he’d lost control. He did two stints at the Repat. There he met men from all the Australian wars — WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, as well as peacekeepers from the many conflicts. It is still happening, he says. In 1999, Peter was put on a full disability pension. He wondered how he would fill in the rest of his life, so he became a volunteer pensions officer with the Cranbourne RSL, helping broken men like himself. ‘‘I can remember one WWII veteran pouring out his story. His wife was there and she said to me, ‘I didn’t know any of this’.’’ As for himself, he’s making progress. A few years ago, he got a call from a man in Clayton who had found his mobile phone. He had a Vietnamese name. As he drove over there, Peter did some deep breathing. He’d spent the years since the war avoiding Asians. ‘‘He gave me the phone. I shook his hand. I clasped his hand. He didn’t know what was going on, but for me it was building a bridge. It took me 35 years to shake hands with a Vietnamese. He wasn’t the enemy. He was normal.’’ If you or someone you know is experiencing an emotional crisis, call Lifeline, 13 11 14.

elected, I’d love to say Taylors Road will close shortly after. ‘‘But I’ve always been one of those representatives to tell the truth rather than use a byelection to tell people what they want to hear.’’ He pledged to have talks with opposition environment spokeswoman Lisa Neville on formulating a hazardous waste policy — something Victoria does not have. Greens candidate Nina Springle said she’d aim for a fiveyear shutdown of Taylors Road, and seek superior technology to manage hazardous waste. Lyndhurst electors can vote between 8am and 6pm on Saturday. See vec.vic.gov.au for booth addresses.

Marking Anzac Day

Parking review in train

Thousands of Cranbourne residents are expected to mark Anzac Day at a dawn service at the Cranbourne RSL or an Anzac Day march later that morning. The dawn service is at the RSL club, on the South Gippsland Highway, starting at 5.45, with breakfast to follow. The march will leave from the car park at the rear of Ritchies supermarket at 10.15, finishing at the cenotaph in High Street. There will also be a service at the Pearcedale Hall from 6am.

Casey will review its parking regulations to address concerns about residents being booked for parking on nature strips outside their homes. Last year the council fined 922 drivers for infringing the statewide regulation. Calling for a review, Cr Gary Rowe said many residents had few parking alternatives. He has also asked council officers for a report on providing a heavy vehicle parking area in the city for owner-drivers of trucks. The report will be considered on May 7.

Burglary, kidnap charges

Three charged on robberies

A 31-year-old Warneet man faces multiple charges related to an alleged aggravated burglary and kidnapping in Cannons Creek last Monday. Rodney Shaw appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court last Wednesday and was remanded in custody to reappear on May 29. He has been charged with aggravated burglary, kidnapping, recklessly causing injury, intentionally causing injury, drug offences and weapons offences. Casey detectives executed a search warrant at a house in Rutherford Parade, Warneet, last Tuesday.

Three Casey residents are among six people charged over a series of armed robberies in Springvale and Mulgrave between April 5-8. Isaiah Magele, 18, Hampton Park, was charged with one count of armed robbery, and Parawai Tai-Rakena Taki, 21, Cranbourne West, was charged with two counts. They appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court last Tuesday and were remanded in custody to appear again on May 27. A 16-year-old Hampton Park youth was charged with one count of armed robbery and remanded to the Children’s Court.

INBRIEF

Voters ‘go for the party’ LABOR’S candidate for Saturday’s Lyndhurst byelection tackled pointed questions head-on at a ‘meet the candidate’ forum in Hampton Park last Wednesday. Martin Pakula, hot favourite to win the safe ALP seat, defended himself against queries about living outside the electorate, being a ‘‘Labor Party man’’ and whether he would close the Lyndhurst toxic waste dump. The forum was organised by Residents Against Toxic Waste in the South East. Most candidates said the toxic waste dump in Taylors Road shouldn’t be near homes. Independent candidate David Linaker raised the crowd’s ire by confessing he wasn’t ‘‘greatly concerned’’ by odours in landfills in Taylors and Hallam roads. Rather, his main issue was publicising a proposed bridge, replete with solar panels and tidal and wind turbines, across the heads of Port Phillip. Another candidate Bobby Singh, of Hampton Park, revealed himself as a Labor member suggesting he was an unendorsed local alternative to Mr Pakula — who pointedly raised his eyebrows. Mr Pakula, who said he lived in ‘‘the City of Bayside’’, disputed the best candidate was independent or lived in the electorate. ‘‘The vast majority vote for the Labor, Liberal or the Greens party candidate. They don’t vote for the individual personality but for the philosophy of the party.’’ On Lyndhurst’s hazardous waste dump, he said: ‘‘If I’m

INBRIEF Cricketers win THE Melbourne-based Young Cricketers Development Program has claimed its hat-trick of wins at an annual under-17 cricket tournament in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, earlier this month. The YCDP has sent sides to the competition for several years and this year’s side featured a number of junior players from the Dandenong District Cricket Association. The team beat a Malaysian XI to claim the Twenty20 tournament for the third straight year. YCDP development manager Vernon Tissera said the team — led by Peter Mathison, Johann Jayasinha and himself — had done very well to beat the Malaysian side, which had beaten a strong Sri Lankan team in the semifinals. Tissera said the tours taught players much about cricket and also about different cultures as they played and mixed with cricketers from Malaysia, Sri Lanka and India. The YCDP side was captained by Liam Wolters and included Rama Davies, Clayron Landers, Liam George, Loughlin O’Connor, Riley Sheldon, Cleyon Landers, Billy Green, Mitchell Forsyth, Cameron Scott and Schintha Peiris. The program will send its first girls’ team on a tour to Sri Lanka and Malaysia in July.

Karate day Australia Shukokai Karate Dojo is inviting people from across south-east Melbourne to visit the club when it hosts a special open day this Saturday. The club has been operating in Dandenong for more than 40 years and recently moved into a new dojo on Greens Road, Dandenong. It wants to welcome new and old faces to its many classes. Chief instructor Sensei Ennio Aselmi and other members will hold demonstrations and participation activities covering karate, boxing, kick boxing, Pilates, weights, gym work, self-defence, massage and other disciplines. The open day runs from 10am-2pm and will be at the new dojo at 2-147 Greens Road, Dandenong.

Casey loses Casey Comets were beaten 3-1 by Box Hill United in their Women’s Premier League game at Wembley Park on Friday night. The loss takes the Comets’ record to one win and two losses for the season with a must-win clash against Altona City at Comets Stadium from 3pm on Sunday.

Waves beaten Peninsula Waves suffered their first loss of the Victorian Netball League championship season to Monash University on Saturday night. The Waves went down 60-51 to the impressive university team in their first home match for the season. Peninsula Waves now clash with North East Blaze on Wednesday night at the State NetballHockey Centre.

Coach tips beaten Cavs to improve against Pakenham CASEY Cavaliers coach Stewart Baird says his team will not be judged on its loss but rather the way it responds in its next Big V State League 2 match. The Cavaliers were beaten 73-62 by a committed Mornington Breakers outfit at the Mornington Basketball Stadium on Saturday night. Baird was disappointed in his team’s performance but backed it to respond against Pakenham at Pakenham this Saturday night. ‘‘I won’t judge them on losing but the way that we respond in our next game,’’ he said. ‘‘It was disappointing to lose but it was more disappointing to lose the way that we lost. ‘‘We didn’t really bring to the game what has been working for us either offensively or defensively.’’ The Cavs lacked the cohesion of previous weeks

despite the best efforts of Dylan Wayman (15 points) and Dean Johnson, who played his best game for the club. They drew within eight points with three minutes to play in the final term and were scoring freely but couldn’t stop the Breakers scoring with Dan Christian netting 27 points for the victors. ‘‘At that stage we were scoring a lot more freely than we had been but on the same token we couldn’t stop them from scoring,’’ Baird said. ‘‘We weren’t applying enough pressure on the guys that didn’t have the ball.’’ In good news for the Cavs, Jonno Hawes has been cleared of a fracture in his leg and is expected to resume playing in the next few weeks while Tim Morgan is also close to resuming from injury.

Comets on a winning trot BY BRAD McGRATH CASEY Comets made it three in a row with a gutsy 1-0 win over Warragul United in their State League 3 soccer clash at Comets Stadium on Saturday. From the outset United pressed hard and it took a brilliant save from Comets keeper Robbie Acs inside the first five minutes to stop them going a goal down. The Comets then missed a golden opportunity when Marce Janneker hit the underside of the crossbar, with the ball bouncing back into play. The teams went into half-time at a 0-0 deadlock with the defences of both teams well on top. The Comets then suffered a massive blow when Simon Webster was sent off after the umpire adjudged a tackle to be dangerous. Comets coach Stan Webster rejigged his line-up with Jason Rand moving into the defensive post vacated by Simon Webster. Although United was on top for a short period after the dismissal of Webster, the Comets regrouped to dominate proceedings with 10 men. The dominance of the Comets led to a penalty but John McCluskey missed and the resultant follow-up was disallowed due to an encroachment. Shortly afterwards, the Comets took a free kick near the penalty area with Sean McLaughlan spearing the ball into a dangerous position. Warragul United was unable to get the ball clear and Chris Reid finally broke the deadlock. ‘‘It was a great effort to win with 10 men,’’ Webster said. ‘‘Warragul are probably the best team we’ve played so far.’’ The Comets are now second on goal difference behind Doncaster with a clash against Berwick City under lights at Berwick on Friday night. The Comets will be bolstered by the inclusion of Scottish recruit Frank Gibson, but Simon Webster will miss through suspension. ‘‘They are a decent side and will be hard to beat on their home ground,’’ Webster said.

‘‘We could have all 12 players on the roster ready to go in the next couple of weeks,’’ Baird said. The Casey Cavaliers division 2 women recorded a 61-46 victory over the Mornington Breakers with Jessica Szalek (13 points and 12 rebounds) and Leah Swain (11 points and 19 rebounds) dominant for the victors. Breakers’ Sinead Power did her best to keep her team in the contest and finished with 12 points and five rebounds. Mornington Breakers defeated the Cavaliers 83-68 in the Youth League 2 clash with Anthony Pegg top-scoring for the victors with 17 points. Casey’s David Gormlie was its best with 17 points and nine rebounds. — Brad McGrath


Eagles escape with narrow win BY BRAD McGRATH BEACONSFIELD was denied a huge win in a Casey Cardinia League clash against ROC at Officer Recreation Reserve on Saturday. The Eagles booted the opening seven goals of the match and held ROC goalless for more than a quarter as their midfield dominated proceedings. From this position the Roos booted the next six goals and stemmed the flow of scoring by the rampant Eagles. By three-quarter-time the match was in the balance with a 15-point margin separating the two teams. ‘‘We gave them a seven-goal start,’’ ROC coach Steve Coates said. ‘‘We didn’t switch on until the 10-minute mark of the second quarter and then we kicked the next six goals. After the slow start we were really good — we were accountable, our skills were really good and we did everything we trained for and we know that we can do it.’’

Despite the spirited performance, ROC went down by nine points after cutting the margin to three points early in the final term. Kane Hughes booted successive goals for the Eagles to put the margin back out to 15 points when ROC threatened. Michael McPhie booted four goals for the victors while Hughes, Kane Airdrie, Ben Kerrigan and ruckman Scott Meyer were prominent for the Eagles. ‘‘It was close in the end. We were seven goals to nothing up and then we took the foot off the pedal and we slacked off and they started to play some good footy,’’ Eagles coach Clint Evans said. ‘‘They [ROC] are a really good young side and I told the boys that to beat them would be bigger than the win against Berwick.’’ ROC was best served by star recruit Ryan Hendy who was prominent through the midfield and floating forward while Matt Clarke booted five goals opposed to Eagles defender Shaun Pollard. ‘‘We’ve got to learn to get over the line in these

games — we have to have that belief that we are good to get those wins,’’ Coates said. Doveton has shown it is in the mix to play in September by stunning fellow finals contender Tooradin-Dalmore by 42 points on Saturday. Doveton ace Matt Stocco was the catalyst for the victory with six majors while coach Shannon Henwood led the midfield superbly. Narre Warren flexed its considerable muscle for a 131-point victory over Keysborough, with Aaron McIver and Kerem Baskaya booting eight goals apiece for the victors. Chris Collins and Matt Lee were also prominent for the Magpies. Michael Downie was the best for Keysborough. Berwick had a 26-point victory over Pakenham, with Tim Gunn and Jordan Andrews both booting four goals. Cranbourne spearhead Marc Holt booted 16 goals in a 175-point demolition of Hampton Park. Ryan Davey and Nick Barker were also strong contributors.

A SWAG of Melbourne players guided Casey Scorpions to a crushing 83-point win over Essendon at Windy Hill on Saturday. The Scorpions were brilliant from start to finish as youngster Jesse Hogan again led the way with a four-goal haul in the 25.12 (162) to 11.13 (79) victory. Scorpions coach Rohan Welsh said his team was doing all the right things and praised their ability to work hard for four quarters. The Scorpions’ ability to start each quarter at top intensity proved a deciding factor in the clash against the newly formed Essendon team. ‘‘The way we went about it today was probably the best we have all year,’’ Welsh said. ‘‘Blokes like Fitzpatrick and Hogan, Page and Best at ground level in the forward line, it puts the opposition under pressure. ‘‘We had a real focus to start quarters well and it was driven by the players. The first contest you’re involved in, you win that contest. The way we started was the way we finished the game. They still had that mindset in the last quarter.’’ The Scorpions, who led by just four points at the first break, blew the game apart in the second term with seven goals to three to take a 28-point break into half-time. James Magner and Jordie McKenzie lead the way with 31 possessions each through the midfield while slippery small David Rodan was electrifying in a best-on-ground display that included three goals. Welsh praised players including Sam Blease, Jake Spencer, James Magner, captain Evan Panozza and Michael Riseley. On a day where Casey’s stats said eight players collected more than 30 possessions it

But Riseley stuck to his task manfully against brilliant young Essendon tall Joe Daniher and Panozza was solid all day. But it was the Scorpions’ midfield that set up the victory. ‘‘You look at Spencer. He was sensational for us. The way he tackled and spread from the contest was fantastic,’’ Welsh said. The performance of Hogan was another huge positive for the Scorpions with the 17 year old having eight goals from two VFL hit-outs. ‘‘He is just a power forward, he has a strong

work ethic which is a great attribute to have and when the opposition has the footy he gets after them and from that point of view it is very promising,’’ Welsh said. The Scorpions development team recorded a 52-point demolition of Frankston’s development team at Casey Fields on Friday night. Michael Boland and Sam Waters were prominent for the Scorpions.

Great deals underfoot at Floorworld ith their decades of combined experience in the flooring industry, it was a natural progress for husband and wife team Cameron and Paula Sharp to buy a Floorworld store 13 years ago. Mr Sharp has owned Cranbourne Floorworld since April 2000 and the Mornington store since last August. ‘‘I run both businesses and split my time between the two, but my wife Paula is at the Cranbourne store and always happy to help with all your flooring needs,’’ he said. ‘‘Paula has over 10 years’ experience in the flooring industry and I have more than 20 years’ experience in all aspects of flooring.’’ Mr Sharp says the main point of difference with their businesses is they are owner-operated, so customers can get the best personal service. ‘‘Because we own and run the business we’re able to ensure the customer has the best possible care from start to finish on all jobs. ‘‘Our trades workmanship is of an excellent standard.’’ Sharp’s Floorworld offers an array of brands exclusive to Floorworld and reasonably priced high-end flooring. ‘‘We’re happy to look at all quotes and do our utmost to be the most competitive. ‘‘As a small business we can be very competitive because

Pawsitively beautiful fter starting Clipperworld from home nine years ago, Ann and Gary Martin soon found the business took on a life of its own and so they moved to a factory in Station Street, Cranbourne. The business has since expanded even further with their three factory premises housing Clipperworld, the Victorian College of Dog Grooming and Clippers of Casey. Kylie Tatti, one of the directors of the business, came on board after 20 years’ grooming experience and was just what the business needed. Ms Tatti, who joined the business at the start of last year, does the dog grooming on the premises, while their Victorian College of Dog Grooming experts teach do-it-yourself groomers, right through to a certificate III in dog grooming.

Notes from learning curve hen Carol Campbell started Nepean Industry Edge Training four years ago, she asked herself the question — ‘What would you do if you were brave?’ That simple question has now become the motto for her business and an affirmation of how Ms Campbell lives her life. NIET is a Mornington Peninsula-based training organisation offering comprehensive, tailored training programs to a variety of industries, including business administration, event management, hospitality, aged care, childcare and first aid. ‘‘After working as a trainer for many years, I realised we were falling short on the service we offered people. We might have been good at training but we needed to be inspiring. That’s why I started NIET,’’ she said. ‘‘I started the business by myself and at the time my children were younger, but you have to have tenacity and just keep going and believe in yourself.’’ This philosophy has become the point of difference for NIET compared with other training companies, and a factor in the success of the

business, she said. ‘‘When we look at going back to study it’s very scary and many people don’t do it because they’re scared they aren’t going to succeed. Our philosophy is to inspire and motivate people, and from the first contact we like to engage them. ‘‘Our trainers inspire students all the way and support them through the training program. We want to motivate them to achieve more and see the inspiration they can be to their kids and family. ‘‘The power of one decision can have a domino effect and an impact on everybody around you.’’ NIET trains a variety of people — from students who’ve just left school and aren’t sure about their job pathway, to people wanting a new career path and parents who want to join the workforce because their children have gone to school. ‘‘We’re very strong in our aged care and nursing on the peninsula and run training on site at Domain By The Bay, who have just won, in collaboration with us, the National Staff and Training Development Award. ‘‘Often on-site training is also turning into real
