Ringwood library plans lagging BY DAVID SCHOUT and YESSAR DAOU

mid-2013, according to the council website. In 2007, the council sold a large amount of land along Maroondah Highway for the Eastland redevelopment for $9.8 million, on the condition that new council facilities — including the library — were built by QIC and leased back to council. The council had previously said the value of the finished product would be ‘‘in excess of $22 million’’. The library and learning centre will be located on Maroondah Highway as the centrepiece of a new Ringwood town square precinct. QIC refused to comment on specific questions about the delays and stated developments were ‘‘progressing well’’.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

THE opening of the new Ringwood Library, Learning and Cultural Centre will be delayed by more than 12 months. The centre, which will be built by Queensland Investment Corporation as part of its $500 million Eastland shopping centre redevelopment, was set to open in late 2014 but will now not open until 2016. Construction on the site was to begin late last year but has not yet begun. The news comes as the state government announced a $500,000 funding boost for Maroondah Council’s internal fitout of the centre. It is in addition to a $400,000 federal grant received last year. Maroondah chief executive officer Frank Dixon said the council’s hands were tied. ‘‘Look, it is slightly delayed. They [Eastland owner QIC] are carrying out the works so it has to be when they’re ready to go,’’ he said.

Are you concerned about the future of the Eastland redevelopment/Ringwood town centre? Post your comment at maroondahweekly.com.au, or via Twitter @MaroondahWeekly

‘‘It’s still all systems go. Considering all the factors in the retail world it’s amazing they’re able to proceed with the project. While we would like to have it completed earlier, it’s more important that it’s still going ahead. ‘‘We are concerned about the delays but fully understand them.’’ The $13 million centre will replace the existing Ringwood library. In July last year the council said it would relocate the library ‘‘in the coming months’’ to a temporary home in Warrandyte Road to accommodate construction works. However this will now not happen until

I wish to strongly object to the continuing sight of rubbish placed on nature strips. No sooner has one lot of rubbish been cleared than another pile takes its place nearby. Also, from time to time, items are left behind. Many of these are not hard rubbish and should be disposed of in the weekly collections. By the time foragers have searched through the piles, items are scattered over the pavement or in the gutter — a most unsightly mess! Is this really the best way to overcome the problem? I would suggest there are many householders wishing for a reversion to the “old” system of annual clearances. Doug Coulson, Ringwood

Re: Tecoma: Macca’s not a crime magnet, police say

in regard to this issue. As a resident of the area, I’ve wanted to see a sensible and civil discussion on the pros and cons of the development. Unfortunately, all I’ve read until now is the ‘worst case scenarios’ of what I’m coming to believe is a vocal and not so local minority. Chris

Really? Subway is not open 24 hours! That’s why police have no issues there. Their stores are only open until 9.30pm. Not exactly comparing apples with apples are they? Anyway, perhaps the headline of this article should have been ‘‘Tecoma: Macca’s are potential traffic nightmare, police say’’. The point is the police do have concerns about a Macca’s in Tecoma, as do nine out of 10 residents.

It’s heartening to see some objectivity

THE future of the vacant Parkwood Secondary College site remains unclear. The Department of Education said it was unsure whether the site would be used as an educational facility or for other purposes in the coming years. The Ringwood North site now houses empty classrooms after the school closed its doors at the end of 2012. A spokesman for the Department of Education said the department was weighing up its options. ‘‘It will conduct an assessment process to determine if the site is needed for future educational purposes,’’ he said. There was no indication as to

when this assessment would take place. And it was not known whether the site would be used for purposes other than education. The future of the site — if it does not remain an educational facility — brings into question whether schools in Maroondah can continue to accommodate local students. The Weekly reported in November that two local schools, Norwood and Ringwood secondary colleges, were either at or past their enrolment capacity for the 2013 school year. Parkwood confirmed in September last year that it would close its doors permanently at the end of 2012. Low enrolments were blamed for the decision.

FIRE engulfed a Croydon shed containing 12 small gas cylinders on Thursday afternoon, causing $30,000 of damage. The cylinders did not explode and the MFB and CFA classified the fire as ‘‘contained’’ at about 2.15pm. MFB commander Peter Egan said at this stage the fire was not suspicious. ‘‘We got a call at about 1.45pm to find two sheds in Edward Court, Croydon, which were well alight,’’ he said. ‘‘The fire did impinge onto the property at the rear of the house, but it caused no further damage. ‘‘The shed was being used as a workshop and for storage.’’ Commander Egan said they ‘‘didn’t have any problems’’ with the 12 gas cylinders inside the shed as they did not explode. Nine vehicles attended the fire, which reportedly reached 10 metres high. Witness Rohan McMahon was near the blaze. ‘‘I was at my friend’s property about four houses down and heard two big explosions,’’ he said. ‘‘We went out the front and straight away heard sirens. The sheds were completely engulfed.’’ Edward Court is about 100 metres from Dorset public golf course. — David Schout

Council holds its breath BY DAVID SCHOUT MAROONDAH Council will learn tomorrow if it has been shortlisted for a $15 million federal government grant for Ringwood’s new pool Aquanation. The decision is a significant one, as the council has stated it would have to ‘‘reconsider the scope of the project’’ if funding is not granted. But Maroondah mayor Nora Lamont said fears the construction of the pool hinged on this decision were unwarranted. ‘‘When locals ask me about the pool I say, ‘Look, in the end we’re going to be having an aquatic centre’,’’ Cr Lamont said. The council announced in December that construction of Aquanation would be delayed until it secured external funding. It had previously assured locals the $46.5 million project was fully budgeted for. However, an unexpected $7.9 million local government superannuation liability had thrown plans off track. The council has applied for a $15 million grant from the Regional Development Australia Fund. If it is shortlisted tomorrow, it will then compete against other organisations for the funding, which will be announced on July 12.

Drug testing on tap BY ROY WARD LOCAL football leagues will this season be able to request drug tests for players suspected of using performance enhancing drugs. The tests, which would be done by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority, were made available to leagues at an AFL conference with community football administrators last October. Both the Eastern Football League and Southern Football League confirmed to the Weekly that all players were under the AFL’s AntiDoping Code, and ASADA could be called in or arrive at random to test local footballers. Both leagues also said they had not had any doping or performance enhancing drug complaints raised about their players, but were concerned about the issue and were educating clubs and club officials on the matter. The Australian Crime Commission released an interim report about crime in sport on Thursday which stated performance enhancing drug use, organised crime connections and the grooming of players for match-fixing were a problem at elite level while at ‘‘sub-elite’’ level the report expressed concerns about players getting PEDs and other substances online and using them during training.

EFL chief executive Rob Sharpe said his league had repeated warnings to its clubs and players about the dangers of doping and of attempts to purchase products which may contain banned substances. Sharpe said players were also warned about the ASADA investigative powers, especially when looking into products bought over the internet or from overseas. The ACC report also stated there was a possibility underworld figures could ‘‘groom’’ young emerging players and later use them to provide information or fix elite level matches. Several EFL players have moved into the Victorian Football League then been drafted to the AFL in past seasons, while the EFL sends a number of players to the TAC Cup competition each year. Sharpe said he was confident players were being well educated on the risks of performance enhancing drugs and other threats. TAC Cup clubs were not speaking publicly about the report, instead pointing to a press release from AFL Victoria. But the Weekly understands all TAC Cup clubs educate their players about the dangers of PED use and players would receive extra education on this topic in the coming months.

Digging in: Graham Howes preparing himself for this Sunday’s rice meal. Picture: Wayne Hawkins

Grain of truth: a meal of empathy CROYDEN Cricket Club will this Sunday host a Rice Meal event to raise awareness on the struggle of living below the poverty line in Third World countries. Rice Meal’s co-founder Graham Howes is hoping for almost double the attendance last year, the first time the event was held. ‘‘We had 46 people taking part. This year we’re hoping for about 80 to 100,’’ he said. For $30, people taking part get a glass of water and a bowl of steamed rice.

‘‘Most Westerners take rice and water for granted.

Delays on the Lilydale and Belgrave railway lines last Tuesday have been blamed on a bat that sparked a shortcircuit at Camberwell station. Commuters faced almost an hour’s wait to get in or out of the city. A stolen copper wire was also cited as a reason for the delays. Train users of both lines also suffered headaches last Wednesday, with normal services not resuming until Thursday.

Residents have been reminded against burning off rubbish on their properties, particularly on days of high fire risk. Police have reported three incidents in the Mt Evelyn area of residents setting fire to rubbish over the past fortnight, which is not only dangerous but a criminal offence on fire ban days. Local officers are warning that anyone caught setting fire to anything will face criminal charges.

BY SOPHIE BOUSTEAD RINGWOOD Community Garden members are opening up their plots to share their gardening secrets with the outer east. The garden club is hosting an open day this month, partly in celebration of its 33rd anniversary. Boasting about 100 members and 120 plots, the garden club is home to a range of fruit and vegetables, from citrus and berries to Chinese vegetables. It encourages people from all backgrounds to contribute. Committee member and open day organiser Tony Milton has been involved for four years. ‘‘I’m a chef, so I love cooking from the garden,’’ he says. ‘‘People are growing lots of different fruits and vegetables and learning how to cook a broad range, too.’’ Once a month, members are invited to a morning tea underneath the garden’s old oak tree, where they are encouraged to discuss the garden and share recipes. In an interesting turn of events, the garden is now located in Wantirna’s JW Manson Reserve, having been relocated from its original location in Canterbury Road, Ringwood, to make way for East Link. The committee received overwhelm-

If you’re in two minds, leave early. The best way to prepare for this fire season is to stay informed and plan to leave early, before you see smoke or fire. Plan to leave early: ü Talk to everyone you live with so you all know when you’re going to leave and where you’re going to go if a fire starts. ü Pack a relocation kit with important documents and essential items. ü On high-risk days, check Fire Danger Ratings and fire warnings on the CFA website and listen to local radio.

Plan to leave early visit cfa.vic.gov.au call 1800 240 667

To the scenery, add a creamery THE Yarra Valley’s newest tourist attraction has opened with a bang. After opening its doors on December 15, the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery has been forced to increase staff numbers by 50 per cent to meet demand. The company’s strong start has been a coup for local tourism. Owner Leanne Neeland, who opened the business with her husband Ian, said the chocolaterie had more than 8000 visitors over the Australia Day long weekend. ‘‘The response has been amazing,’’ she said. ‘‘We’ve had to increase our staff from 40 to 62 to deal with the numbers. We knew people would eventually come but not in the first few weeks. We haven’t advertised, and the popularity has come largely from word of mouth or social media.’’

Hot weather has naturally increased the popularity of ice-cream. Mrs Neeland said supporting local growers was one thing she set out to do from the start. ‘‘We deliberately use local fruits and creams from the valley. We enjoy buying from them.’’ She said having international chocolatiers on board had brought fresh ideas to the team. ‘‘We have four chocolatiers from Belgium and two from France. They’ve never dealt with things like rocky road or honeycomb before so they’ve had to become accustomed to that quickly.’’ Mrs Neeland said the best thing about opening the business was seeing families enjoying time together in the sunny weather. ‘‘I love watching the kids run around and enjoying all the different chocolate we have.’’

Finishing touch: Croydon’s Danni Smyth putting a little love into some fresh chocolates. Team effort: Chocolaterie staff Debra, Shelly, Sue, Thomas, Connie and Carla. Pictures: Rob Carew

If you’re stuck on an idea for your Valentine on Thursday, the Yarra Valley creamery has handcrafted a range of limited-edition chocolates for

HEATHMONT resident Emily Dunlop is getting ready for a road trip of a different kind. Next month, the 20-year-old nursing student will travel around the nation to inspire 100,000 Australians at community meetings and events with the message that ‘‘we can end global poverty’’. Ms Dunlop was selected from thousands of applicants for the Oaktree Foundation’s 2013 Roadtrip to End Poverty. ‘‘Three months ago my friends told me to apply and said it’d be perfect for me. And it is, it’s right up my alley,’’ she says. ‘‘After I applied I got really nervous because I’d be so shattered if I wasn’t selected. Luckily, I was.’’ On the morning of March 9, more than 1000 young people will depart capital cities. Groups of 80 will travel together through communities, speaking to everyday people and attending events. Ms Dunlop and her peers will take part in training days in the lead-up to the road trip. After recently completing a three-year nursing course at Australian Catholic University, Ms Dunlop now works as a

TEENS will have the chance to strap on their dancing shoes and get ready to rumba in a new social dance program. Lilydale-based Dancesport Kingdom will relaunch for 2013, RAWR a ballroom and latin dance program for teenagers, with a free first lesson. Dances taught will include the jive, cha cha, salsa and rumba. Principal instructor Monica Fincham said the lessons would put new life into the traditional dance styles by using modern music. ‘‘The dances lend themselves to today’s music. It’s equally exciting now as it was for our grandparents.’’ She said teens did not need dance experience to attend the lessons. ‘‘We teach stuff everyone can get. It’s learning some simple steps and dancing with your friends. They’ll learn pretty quickly. Ninetynine per cent of the kids love it.’’ Ms Fincham said participants would be divided into beginner and intermediate groups during the first part of each lesson. ‘‘We’ll do some dedicated teaching. Then for the second half we’ll bring everyone together for a social dance. So we turn the lights off, have a disco ball going and dance the steps learnt to the latest music. ‘‘We use what’s called a progressive format, with the boys on the inside circle and the girls on the outside, so everyone is changing partners.’’ She said ballroom and latin dancing were fun alternatives to regular sports.

‘‘It’s a great break from school work. ‘‘We’ve found that for some teens in school who are not taking part in mainstream sports, such as football or cricket, they pick up dancing and really excel. ‘‘Dancing is great exercise and great for coordination.’’ She said dancing also increased the confidence of shy adolescents. ‘‘They can come in quite shy and come through much more confident at the end.’’ RAWR dance lessons will run from 6.30-8pm on Monday evenings. Lessons will cost $15 each. Dancesport Kingdom is at 24 Main Street, Lilydale. Details: 9739 6011 or visit dancesportkingdom.com.au.

MOTORING ●

Style and space in soulful package Ewan Kennedy road tests the Kia Soul ia’s Soul is aimed at people who want a sensible car that looks anything but sensible. People who like the retro look of a Fiat 500 or BMW Mini but who also need a back seat that’s suitable for family use. Chunky looks that come into the love-it-orhate-it category are the biggest feature of the soulful Soul from South Korea. We have to say straight out that we love it. Every line makes a statement. From the distinctive German-inspired grille, through the squared-off side and tall roof to the look-at-me tail lights, the Soul stands apart from the madding crowd of let’s-not-offendanyone school of design. The interior is cheeky in style too with big gauges and a funky look that harks back to the 1970s. The really good news is that the Kia Soul isn’t all style and no substance. Buyers of large family cars will find there’s room for large teenagers in the back seat. There is plenty of headroom, fore and aft. The Soul has a reasonable-sized boot, but in a

K

shortish car like this it relies on depth rather than length. While it may not be large enough to cart a lot of gear on an extended holiday trip with two kids on board, the Soul will prove more than adequate for most families almost all of the time. As with the Mini, the options list for the Kia Soul is large and designed to tempt the individualist who really wants to stand out. Our road test Kia Soul came in a bright red colour and had large alloy wheels added to a great design that was loved by all who saw it. The car we tested was powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine with 95kW of power and 157Nm of torque at 4850 rpm. The engine is nicely responsive and we found it happy to pull away from the lights with a good deal of poke. Handling is competent enough, the Soul holds the road well and is reasonably willing to change direction part way through a corner. The Kia Soul isn’t for everyone, but the individualist on a tight budget will love it. Prices start at $21,490, not including government or dealer delivery charges.

Cheeky looks: Kia’s Soul not only looks great, it also works well from a practical point of view.

Top-four spot within reach for Parkers BY ROY WARD AND TONY SMITH A FINALS appearance in their return season to the RDCA Lindsay Trollope Shield is up for grabs for Ainslie Park, now they have to take it. The Parkers, who have a slight hold on fourth place, will be out to defend their first-day total of 263 against fifth-place Mooroolbark at Ainslie Park Reserve when play resumes this Saturday. A win would see the Parkers all but safe in fourth spot entering the final round. With the Parkers batting first, Trent Sier (47) held the Parkers’ innings together to see them sit at 4-103 at tea. After tea, teenager Brad Wadsworth (51) and Darren Walles (40) batted sensibly to see Ainslie Park arrive at their final score. Matt Whittaker (4-69) and Daniel Dimitriou

(4-50) bowled tirelessly for Mooroolbark. Parkers captain Mark Arnot said his side still had to work hard with the ball to snare the vital win. ‘‘It’s not an unbeatable score, it guarantees we will still be in the game until later in the day,’’ he said. ‘‘The ground is really quick, we will need to take all 10 wickets.’’ Arnot said it was time for his bowlers to stand up and perform after some inconsistent performances during the season. ‘‘On our good days we can bowl nice tight lines and now it’s down to us to do that if we want to make the finals,’’ he said. Arnot also praised the batting of Wadsworth, Sier and Walles along with the tail, who put on almost 100 runs for the last three wickets.

‘‘The good thing is it has come down to this stage — if we beat Mooroolbark we know we deserve to be in the finals, if we lose then we will know we are not quite up to that standard yet.’’ Warranwood’s Andrew Spittle (4-20 including four wickets in five balls) had South Warrandyte in all sorts of trouble early to see the Hawks stand at 5-27. Damien Vozzo (62) and Robert Bowen (60) then combined to see South Warrandyte finish at 187. Bayswater Park lost wickets consistently throughout the day to be bowled out for 137 off 54 overs against South Croydon. Matthew Parker (46) top scored for the Sharks and Travis Degenhardt (3-31) was the main wicket taker. In reply, the Bulldogs were 4-57 at stumps

with Michael King on 29 not out. Croydon North’s Jade Boyd (113), Ryan Hayres (29) and Chris Noy (29) had the Knights looking good at 2-134 against North Ringwood. Michael Scott ( 7-50 off 21) had other ideas and Croydon North lost 8-71 to be dismissed for 205. Wantirna South will resume next week at 0-22 chasing Norwood’s 163. Ben Hastie (41) top scored for the Vikings and wickets were shared by the Devils bowlers. The annual Twenty20 match between Ringwood CC and the RDCA will take place on February 20 at Jubilee Park, Ringwood at 5pm. This year’s charity is TLC for Kids. There is one match left in the season after this round of matches.

The team that trains together impresses

Rams star shows who is King of the hill AT the time his Ringwood Rams needed him most, Rams star David King stood tall and led his side to a memorable victory over Dandenong Panthers at Shepley Oval on Saturday. After making a 106 against Panthers star fast bowlers James and Darren Pattinson on the first day, King came on at a key juncture in the Panthers’ run chase and snared the vital wicket of batsman Brett Forsyth (38), leaving the home side 3-117 chasing 237. From that point the Panthers lost four quick wickets, then in the final hours of the day were bowled out for 185 from 65.5 overs. King (4-34) ended with the most wickets while Ian Holland (3-58) and Michael Topp (2-30) were also in good form. Rams playing coach Gavin Kellar said King’s performance was the difference in the match. ‘‘His game was outstanding,’’ Kellar said.

‘‘He put his hand up and won the club this game of cricket. ‘‘David came on to bowl at the crucial stage. They had a reasonable partnership going and he came on and got the key wicket.’’ Kellar said the win would build confidence among his side, which had lost some focus with its bowling in the early part of the day. ‘‘We started a little slowly and didn’t hit our zones early on,’’ he said. ‘‘But after we got the first wicket of the day, we went back to bowling to our lengths and dried up the scoring. In the end our line and length outlasted their batsmen.’’ The day was successful across the club, with all four senior sides winning. Panthers vice-captain Tom Donnell said his batsmen had not held onto their wickets long enough to make the total. ‘‘It was a disap-

pointing result after we had set the day up well,’’ Donnell said. ‘‘No one in the middle order put their hand up to bat a long period of time.’’ The Rams host Camberwell Magpies at Jubilee Park, Ringwood for a two-day game starting on Saturday.

THEY say the team that trains together, wins together. Yarra Valley Grammar Ariels coach Christina Puopolo believes having her side together all week will be a key to their chances in the Victorian Netball League season when play begins on February 27. Puopolo said her young side was quickly jelling into an impressive team. “With the group of girls we have, they seem to really want to work hard. It’s a good group which is bonding well so I have a good feeling about this season. “In past years we have had talented players but they were also involved in other programs and teams so we hardly ever trained together, which made it hard to work on our team and our structure.” The Ariels have lost some star talent in goal-shooter Sarah Main and goal-attack Stephanie Puopolo, although Puopolo missed much of last season with a knee injury. Main has joined Monash University Central while Puopolo signed with Adelaide Thunderbirds in the ANZ championship and has moved to Adelaide. But former Queensland Firebirds player Candice Adams has joined the club after moving to Melbourne to join boyfriend and Olympic rower Josh Dunkley-Smith. “We found out by chance that Candice was moving to Melbourne and we chatted and she decided to join us,” Puopolo said. “Candice will make a bit of difference and is a very talented player to have in goal attack.” Melbourne Vixens squad member Shannon Eagland and AIS member Micaela Wilson are also on the Ariels list but Puopolo won’t know how often she will have use of them until the season begins. “If Shannon don’t get much court time then we will have them week to week but it would be nice for her to get good court time at that level,” Puopolo said. Wilson will play either goalkeeper or goal defence but could miss matches as she is trying out for the Australian 21 and under side. Puopolo said the Ariels division 1 side again looked likely to contend for the premiership after making the finals last year while the under-19 Ariels side had some impressive talent. — Roy Ward The VNL pre-season competition continues on Wednesday night at the State Netball and Hockey Centre, Parkville.
