Ice’s slippery slope to crime end cycle has a ‘crash’ which can produce a serious depression.’’ Senior researcher Belinda Lloyd said icerelated ambulance attendance numbers reflected an increase. Detective Henley urged parents and teachers to help tackle the growing problem. ‘‘Realistically, educating our young not to take drugs in the first place combined with empowering them to resist peer pressure is the only real solution,’’ he said. ‘‘We can police it as best we can, but realistically we’ll be chasing our tails because while there is a demand there will be supply.’’

Weathering the storm ROADS were flooded and a ninemegalitre dam almost burst its banks after 18 millimetres of rain fell in Melton over the weekend. Department of Sustainability and Environment spokesman Darrin McKenzie said it, the CFA and SES were called to assist after pressure began to build on the banks of a dam at a Rockbank farm about 4pm Sunday. Water was pumped out and an excavator brought in amid fears the dam could burst and send water onto nearby Melton Highway. ‘‘DSE and other services monitored the situation overnight. The heavy rainfall in the last week contributed to the catchment becoming saturated. We will have a controlled release over the next 24 hours to bring levels of water of the dam to a safe level.’’ Melton’s Acting Sergeant Jamie Love yesterday said the threat to Melton Highway would be monitored.

THE drug ‘ice’ is being used more widely, ruining lives and driving many users to commit crime, according to police. Calling for better drug education, Detective Sergeant Robert Henley said the effects of crystal methamphetamine hydrochloride were horrific. ‘‘When I started working, it was heroin. Now ice is creating significant policing issues,’’ he said. ‘‘Ice is the nastiest drug, particularly because of the effects it has on the human body. Ice ruins lives and health.’’ Detective Henley said a significant number

of thefts and assaults were related to ice in some way. ‘‘Because of the violent episodes from ice, assaults and property crime to pay for the drugs are common.’’ Shelly Cross, general manager of Melton drug and alcohol counselling service Stepping Up, said alcohol remained the most abused substance locally, but problems with ice were becoming more common. She said taking large and continuous doses for several days could cause serious damage. ‘‘There is risk that the person will become psychotic while under the influence. Users tend to lose interest in food, sleep, and hygiene. The

He also called for police to take a proactive approach and educate troubled youth about the legal and justice system, rather than inflicting harsh punishment. Mr Twentyman said youth in the west were dealing with a ‘‘tidal wave of issues’’ and urged the state government, police and senior educators to step in. He called for alternative education centres to be established for troubled youth to keep them engaged through specialised learning. ‘‘For many disadvantaged kids, life is like treading water or just waiting to drown. Just because these kids are disengaged doesn’t mean they have no brains; they just have no opportunity. Education gives you the power to make choices,’’ he said.

MVVA presented the school with $1000 for the weekly menu. Vice-president John Hodges (also pictured, with Pastor Gary Russell) says children are ‘‘stoked about fresh fruit Friday’’. Mr Hodges says MVVA members felt it was important to give back to the community that wholeheartedly supports its members. ‘‘We wanted to do something for the children.’’ On Saturday, the association commemorated the Vietnam Veterans Day and 50th anniversary of the arrival of Australian troops in Vietnam. Mr Hodge said thousands of residents gathered at the Melton Cenotaph to pay tribute.

POLICE, youth workers and educators have vowed to take a united approach to helping troubled young people following a youth violence summit in Caroline Springs. Last Tuesday’s summit, ‘Keeping kids in the classroom and out of the courtroom’, was organised by youth worker Les Twentyman in response to what he called ‘‘the growing rate of youth violence’’ gripping Melbourne’s north-west. Senior police, educators, students and migrant leaders attended the meeting at the Catholic Regional College campus. Detective Superintendent Pat Boyle said gang violence had reached unprecedented levels, and he urged the community to work together to tackle the issue. ‘‘Police can’t do it alone. We need teachers, the government and youth workers to work together on this,’’ he said. Detective Superintendent Boyle said there were proven links between truancy and youth gang violence. ‘‘Teachers need to not only understand but be aware of what a gang presence looks like in the school environment and how to intervene.’’ Catholic Regional College deputy principal Kelley Revelman said teachers were working with students to come up with ways to improve student attendance and connection to education. ‘‘A traditional school environment is not perfect for all students,’’ she said. ‘‘A major benefit of the summit was for teachers to be aware of other services that are out there to assist troubled young people and to connect students to these services if they are in need.’’ African community leader Abselom Nega, who attended the summit, said more than 200 troubled youths had sought help from youth education group iEmpower in the past year. As the organisation’s chief executive, he said migrants and refugees were particularly vulnerable. ‘‘Our target group is mainly migrants and refugees, many of African background who

INBRIEF Demand for Mowbray campus sites Several private schools are lining up to buy insolvent Mowbray College’s three campuses. Fitzroy’s agent David Bourke said several schools had identified the north-west as a place to establish and expand. ‘‘Melton campus is a significant infill site well suited to development. There’s still a reasonably steady market in the schools sector.’’ Mr Bourke said all three Mowbray campuses were extensive in scope. ‘‘The cost to replace them would be very high.’’ He said a number of private school bodies were interested. ‘‘There are also inquiries from developers. The town centre campus is well located in the centre of Caroline Springs.’’ Mowbray College collapsed earlier this year and was placed in receivership in July. Expressions of interest close September 14.

‘West to drive jobs growth’

Police are seeking help from the public after a man exposed himself in front of two girls in Melton West last Wednesday night. Detectives said the girls, 11, were walking home from a park along Roslyn Park Drive after 6pm when a man, who was riding a bike approached them. He fled after exposing himself and starting to masturbate. He’s described as Caucasian, 183 centimetres with brown hair and a goatee. He was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans, sneakers and a blue bike helmet. Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Speed limits to undergo change BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM and ANDRIA COZZA MELTON has one of the highest rates of youth unemployment in metropolitan Melbourne, new figures reveal. But there’s hope for a better future, with employment forecasts suggesting Melbourne’s west will lead the way in job creation over the next five years. Federal Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations labour force data shows youth unemployment in the outerwestern suburbs, which includes Melton, hit 14.5 per cent in the 12 months to June. The region had the second-highest youth unemployment rate in the state. The central highlands district, including Horsham, recorded a jobless rate of 15.4 per cent.

Greater Melton Chamber of Commerce president Ollie Tabone said the situation for local businesses was similar to the national picture. But while there was a tendency to talk things down, the chamber saw many positives for the shire with more people moving in and new businesses setting up. ‘‘Employment in the area we feel is quite positive and often jobs are filled before they are even listed,’’ Ms Tabone said. She said youth jobless figures remained a concern. ‘‘[Youth unemployment] is something that the businesses in the shire in conjunction with the GMCC need to look at . . . including work placement, work experience and even a ‘give a kid a go’ campaign.’’

This week’s opening of an expanded NQR grocery store in Melton is a sign there are better times ahead, according to its chief executive Aaron Fitzgerald. He said half of the 30 positions at Melton NQR were new. Maribyrnong MP and Federal Employment and Workplace Relations Minister Bill Shorten said the department predicted 33,600 jobs would be created in the outer-west over the next five years, with the area home to the largest working-age population in the state. “We have our challenges in Melbourne’s western suburbs, but people who are raising families and running businesses here should feel reassured that the future is positive.’’ He said the greatest challenge was to equip workers with the right skills to match opportunities.

A MELTON man who was forced to resort to squatting is holding onto hope that he will one day be reunited with his family. Damian, who did not want his last name published, has been granted emergency housing at a motel in Deer Park with his partner Alissa and their three children but is unable to house his ‘‘fur family’’. Trish Burke, of Woodend’s Pets Haven animal shelter, has agreed to care for dog Nitro and cat Puss until the family can find permanent accommodation. Last month the Weekly reported that Damian would often lie awake at night, afraid that the house he was squatting in may be broken into. He squatted with his two pets, while his partner and children were ‘couch surfing’ with friends. Damian said the family had sought help from a Melton support service but was turned away because no accommodation was available.

At the time, Melton Labor MP Don Nardella said cases like Damian’s highlighted ‘‘the abandonment of those at risk’’. But Housing Minister Wendy Lovell said statewide public housing data showed a significant fall in applications in the June quarter. With his family and animal friends safe, Damian said he was glad someone was taking care of his pets while long-term accommodation was sought. ‘‘I can’t thank Pets Haven enough for looking after my fur family. Soon we’ll all be together,’’ he said. Melton resident and Pets Haven volunteer Shelley Culpin said the family’s circumstances were tragic, but Damian’s decision to stand by his pets was admirable. ‘‘It’s not every day that you would come across someone like Damian. His pets are also his family,’’ she said.

forward. In Collie, Western Australia in the early ’70s, Bev fell pregnant to her father, delivering Elizabeth two days after her 15th birthday. Bev met Elizabeth for the first time about 10 years ago; Elizabeth only learnt the truth about her father that day. ‘‘It was very emotional,’’ she said. ‘‘It was harder on her than it was on me. She took it all right considering . . . she didn’t blame me.’’ Mr Coles admits an apology will take the edge off, however slightly, the mistake he made as a young man. Although he’s quick to point out none of this is about him, but rather the mothers and the children they were forced to relinquish. ‘‘They [the mothers] were essentially blocked by social workers, hospital authorities and even their parents. ‘‘[The apology] gives validation for those who suffered, it confirms the practices causing so much grief and trauma did take place, and it provides a commitment that these practices will never happen again.’’

FAMILIES affected by the practice of forced adoptions have welcomed the state government’s decision to make a formal apology. Bacchus Marsh’s Gary Coles said he had only just begun to forgive himself for abandoning his baby 45 years ago. A significant step towards inner peace was meeting his son, ‘‘Mark’’, in 2009. Mr Coles said that in 1967, as a 21-year-old student, he didn’t have the financial or emotional support of his parents to help raise the son he conceived with girlfriend Kay. As reported by the Weekly in March, the birth was kept a secret from Kay’s Catholic parents and Gary eventually left his home country, New Zealand. Under draconian forced adoption regulations in place in New Zealand and Australia at the time, the baby was taken away by authorities.

A Senate committee inquiry has estimated as many as 250,000 babies were taken between the 1950s and ’70s, mostly from young and single mothers. Premier Ted Baillieu last week announced an official apology would be made on October 25. Association of Relinquishing Mothers secretary Jo Fraser said the move was welcome. ‘‘We want a sincere apology, which acknowledges the immense pain that has been caused,’’ she said. ‘‘There are seven stages of grief, with the last one being acceptance. ‘‘But these women have never been able to accept it. People need ongoing counselling from specialised professionals who know all about adoption issues.’’ Ms Fraser said the Weekly’s story on forced adoptions earlier this year helped several Melton women engage with support service Relinquishing Mothers. For Melton’s Bev, who did not want her surname published, relinquishing her daughter was the only logical step

New kidney means a new life IT wasn’t until Marilyn Edwards had children of her own that she began to think of the consequences a hereditary kidney disease could have on her life. After being diagnosed with polycystic kidneys when she was in her 20s, the Melton resident knew it would be only a matter of time before she would need to undergo a transplant. ‘‘After I gave birth to my two children I began to realise the seriousness of the condition,’’ she said. ‘‘I had my children tested straightaway so they would be aware of the condition from a young age and be conscious of making healthy lifestyle choices.’’ Her youngest son was diagnosed with the condition. Ms Edwards, 61, was on dialysis for four years before she was given a kidney transplant three months ago. She knew all too well what life on dialysis was like; she had watched her mother go through the same routine many years earlier. ‘‘Dialysis just becomes a part of your weekly ritual. ‘‘It’s an extremely emotional time because you

know you have to be hooked up to this machine every second day to keep on living.’’ Ms Edwards was among 150 people who attended a free forum on kidney health in Sunshine last week. The event sought to highlight the links between kidney disease and other conditions like diabetes and heart disease. Ms Edwards said even though kidney disease was a widespread condition, many people didn’t understand how serious it was. ‘‘When you see the number of people in hospital hooked up to dialysis to live, it’s mind-boggling,’’ she said. ‘‘Melton alone has 48 patients on dialysis, and then you consider the number of units in Victoria.’’ According to the National Kidney Foundation, leading causes of kidney disease include diabetes and high blood pressure. The rate of people with diabetes in Brimbank continues to soar, increasing 212.5 per cent from 2001-11. Brimbank is Melbourne’s diabetes hot spot, with 11,793 residents living with the condition, Diabetes Australia-Victoria figures show. About 15 new cases are diagnosed in the area each week. For more information on kidney health, visit kidney.org.au

Second chance: Marilyn Edwards underwent a kidney transplant three months ago.

Calls to restore TAFE funding BY BENJAMIN MILLAR PRESSURE is building on the state government to reverse funding cuts after thousands of TAFE teachers and students last week marched on Parliament. Last Thursday’s rally followed the delivery of a petition containing more than 1000 signatures to Premier Ted Baillieu. The petition of Victoria University staff and students and western suburbs residents calls on the government to abandon about $300 million in funding cuts that are expected to heavily affect students from lower socio-economic backgrounds. Western Metropolitan Greens MP Colleen Hartland, who delivered the petition to the Premier last Tuesday, said the 1000 signatures were just the tip of the iceberg of people who wanted TAFEs to be well funded

and to continue providing quality education in the west. ‘‘Victoria University staff and students are already feeling the pain of the TAFE cuts as redundancies take effect and courses are cut,’’ she said. Ms Hartland told Parliament about 50 per cent of Victoria University students were on a low income and may no longer be able to access education. Federal Tertiary Education Minister Chris Evans warned that Victoria’s share of vocational funding was being placed at risk by its cuts to the public TAFE sector. But state Higher Education Minister Peter Hall said the government was making a record ongoing investment in vocational training while introducing essential reforms designed to save the system from collapse.

Youngest bookworms Caroline Springs children like Kane, Jeanette and Lana (pictured with instructor Bonnita Lobo) are getting a head start for National Reading Hour on Saturday. The initiative is designed to encourage families to read to their children, even for 10 minutes a day or an hour a week. Residents are encouraged to read during the official reading hour, from 6-7pm on August 25. ‘‘Books teach us valuable lessons, allow us to learn from the wisdom of others and open up our imaginations so we can dream impossible dreams and achieve great things in life,’’ Melton mayor Justin Mammarella said.

Melton Shire Council is inviting the community to have their say on the Bridge Road Reserve Masterplan. The 14.1 hectare Bridge Road Reserve is located on Bridge Road in the new Atherstone development in the northern section of the Toolern Regional Park. The development of the Bridge Road Reserve will consist of three stages. In stage one, the key features will be a senior AFL / cricket grass oval with turf wicket and a field hockey synthetic pitch (both with training level lights and associated infrastructure), four tennis courts, a community centre, a traffic school, a fenced playground with BBQ and shelter and a car park for 151 cars. Stage two will see a community pavilion, a local level synthetic athletics track (with lights and associated infrastructure) and another car park for 120 cars. An additional four tennis courts with lights, a second hockey pitch and a shared athletics / hockey pavilion are planned for stage three. The masterplan is available on Council’s website www.melton.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay and comments are required by Monday 27 August 2012.

Art Day Out will feature a Celtic harp performance, also arts and crafts will be available for sale on the day. The Mayor with Deborah Watson from the Mothers’ Network of Caroline Springs and Burnside who won the Community Organisation of the Year category at the 2012 Community Achievement Awards.

Have Your Say On Fenced Dogs Off Lead Parks Melton Shire Council is evaluating the municipality’s two fenced dog off lead parks and is encouraging residents to provide feedback by participating in a survey. In June 2011, Council voted to introduce two temporary fenced dog off lead parks at Navan Park in Melton West and Boronia Reserve in Hillside and evaluate the parks after 12 months. Council wants to know what residents think of the parks and what improvements they would like to see. The survey takes just a couple of minutes and asks questions such as which park do you use, how often do you visit the park and how satisfied are you with the parks. The survey can be accessed at www.melton.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay Those without access to a computer can pick up a copy from the Civic Centre in Melton, 232 High St or the Civic Centre/Library in Caroline Springs, 193-201 Caroline Springs Blvd. The survey closes on Friday 24 August 2012. Feedback from the survey will be presented to Council later in the year.

I think it’s also important to keep the community informed about Council grant and funding opportunities that are available to them, so, I’m very pleased to announce that applications for round 2 of Council’s Heritage Assistance Fund are now open. The fund provides ‘one off’ financial assistance for conservation works or preparation of conservation management plans, for heritage places within the Shire. For further information, contact Council’s Planning Services unit on 9747 7200 or visit www.melton.vic.gov.au

she emerges from the back of the truck an audience begins to gather and several shoppers question the diminutive but authoritative figure at the microphone stand. “As soon as you are in uniform there’s a certain level of interest; people come up and ask what you are doing,” Beattie says. “We explain to them that what we are doing is a full-time job.” It has been a full-time occupation since the 1980s, when professional musicians were first sworn in as police members. When the police band originated 120 years ago it was formed by those on the beat who volunteered to play an instrument part-time. In the 1980s, Beattie was singing Grizabella’s Memory from the musical Cats on Box Hill school Our Lady of Sion College’s stage, dressed in a black leotard with a newspaperstuffed tail. “It’s not like it was here when I was at school (in Box Hill),” Beattie says. “It’s a bit different now; there is a big drug problem and a lot of youth unemployment. “In the break, people talk about bad experiences they have had living around here, and their experiences with police. You get comments like, ‘I usually hate coppers but youse are all right’. “A lot of what we do is PR, and the music reaches people and you see smiles on their faces. Our primary role is to perform for graduations and police functions, but otherwise we perform at anything communitybased that benefits the community.” The Showband plays across Melbourne and regional Victoria, and its members come from all suburbs across Melbourne, from Eltham to Sandringham. Gig locations this year have included the city’s Federation Square, Nunawading, Ashburton, St Kilda, Williamstown, Frankston, Emerald Lake, Geelong, Swan Hill and Castlemaine. There

And finally, I’d just like to remind everyone that Art Beat, Council’s annual celebration of all things arty and creative, kicks off on 31 August. This year’s festival features photographic exhibitions, Artist-in-Residence programs, art and craft workshops, author talks and of course, Art Day Out, Art Beat’s signature event featuring live, original music, craft stalls and much more.

It’s always pleasing when I get the opportunity to let my constituents know what Council is doing to ensure our community has easy access to great facilities and relevant services, day in, day out. So, it’s particularly gratifying to be able to share details of Council’s recently adopted budget that has significantly invested in infrastructure improvements for facilities in Watts ward, including an epoxy floor in the change rooms and a veranda outside the community hall in Diggers Rest, and improvements to kiosk facilities at the Hillside Recreation Reserve. A very positive outcome for these grass-roots facilities, I’m sure you’ll agree.

t can be a glamorous life fronting a showband, but this is not one of those days. The band’s equipment truck, emptied of trunks of brass instruments and sound gear, doubles as a hasty change room for Elise Beattie as she transforms from “worker ant” roadie to lead singer in a shopping mall in Melbourne’s east. Long loose hair is secured in a no-nonsense plait, and casual clothing discarded for navy trousers, sensible flat black shoes and a crisp light-blue shirt with an epaulette and stripe on each shoulder. Only the showbiz shades remain from her civilian guise as Beattie prepares to front the Victoria Police Showband with co-senior constable Daina Jowsey under the midday sun for the mostly unsuspecting shoppers and commuters. Music director (and prominent Melbourne musician) Daryl McKenzie is absent, so Beattie and Jowsey consult over a whiteboard song list and a takeaway coffee while fellow band members set up 500 leads and an array of instruments for the gig. They choose songs from hundreds of the band’s own arrangements, mixing swing with jazz, classical, musical theatre, rock and pop. Beattie is down for Adele’s Rolling in the Deep, Jowsey is opening with Dancing in the Street. Together they will close with what Beattie says is a crowd favourite, The Flower Duet, a soaring soprano aria from French opera Lakmé. It is one of the tracks they performed for the Showband’s Divas CD, sales of which aid the police force’s Blue Ribbon Foundation community program. There are a few curious glances from passers-by as Beattie completes her assigned chores and sets up the microphones. But once

are school performances, too, and the public can check the police website for the showband’s calendar for a performance in their neighbourhood. More glitzy gigs include charity nights, when Beattie frocks up out of uniform to perform at venues that have included Crown’s Palladium room, Hamer Hall and Melbourne’s World Congress Centre. Beattie, 46, has been on patrol with the showband around Victoria for the past 11 years and previously she sang with the Victoria Police’s rock band, Code One, for six years. Her role in the police force was recognised with a national award for “rockin’ it” in January. She wears the stripe of a senior constable, “and we have full police powers of arrest”, she says. But, as with the rest of the 24 showband members, Beattie says she is not operational as a police officer. Band leader Sergeant Pat Hudson, who has in the past been in the back-row line-up on trombone, watches from beyond the policetaped stage edge as the party gets started. Music spills into the mall and an audience builds. Most of the smoking section – a halfbrick wall outside the supermarket – is full. Hudson says that at the height of the set about 200 people are toe-tapping to the tunes.

The youth that the showband is reaching out to largely respond to the offer of musical friendship, with most unplugging at least one earphone to catch a Lady Gaga or Beyoncé song. An older fan, Robert Fraser, 59, dances through all three sets, oblivious to the fact he is mostly dancing solo on the pavement. A middle-aged woman kicks off her heels, dumps her handbag under the watchful gaze of the band’s brass section and joins him for a track. Towards the end of the last set a trio of teens lose their inhibitions and let their lanky limbs loose. Fraser is a regular at showband gigs, says Hudson. Fans can find performance dates on the police website, which also lists gigs for the other two police bands, Code One and a Victoria Police Pipe Band, which brings bagpipes and drums to many Melbourne parades. Collectively, the three bands perform about 500 gigs annually, and Hudson says these reach about 650,000 Victorians a year. “One of the things the band does is to go find people who can’t come to us,” he says. “Often it’s in an unstable environment not particularly conducive to bands.” In times of hardship and disaster, the Showband is dispatched to communities where an uplifting tune can bring some cheer or relief in tough times.

music at Victoria College. She gained professional experience with Dame Joan Sutherland in Othello for the Australian Opera (now Opera Australia) and with the Wiggles in front of a crowd of 80,000. “I still have singing lessons because it is important that our music is as high a standard as it can be,” Beattie says. “Being with the band involves a regimented lifestyle, especially for the singers to stay fit and healthy. In a 10-day fortnight we get four days off, and those 10 days can be at any time. We spend many hours travelling … being on tour with the band on the bus is like being in a sitcom. There are some incredibly funny personalities.”

“When there were floods in country Victoria a year ago we had a week tour in those regions, and we based ourselves in Horsham. We were bussed out to country towns I had never heard of where all 50 people in the town came to see us. When we do a show for them it’s the only thing that has made them smile in a long time.” Beattie says the performances are not all about the music, as she spends a lot of time talking to locals. Hudson says: “That’s experiential contact. The audience doesn’t just see a copper in a uniform, they see Elise sing and talk to them and take a positive experience from it.” Beattie says: “Post-9/11 there was a big community memorial service at the tennis centre. Lots of American expats and government officials were there. I sang the Australian anthem and Daina sang the American anthem. It was one of the hardest things I have had to do; there was not a dry eye in the place. “After events like that you go home and have a cry. At those emotional gigs, that’s when your professional experience comes flooding back because you have got to concentrate on getting the job done.” In addition to Cats, Beattie took lead roles in her school’s Gilbert and Sullivan productions before studying voice at Melba Conservatorium and primary teaching in

Re-Bourne franchise loses the plot The Legacy fails to live up to its predecessors, writes Daniel Paproth att Damon’s name has become so synonymous with the Bourne film series that this fourth instalment, the first without Damon, feels like a slightly inferior reboot of the hugely successful franchise. Replacing Damon in the lead role is Jeremy Renner, who plays Aaron Cross, a man on the run from the CIA. When we are introduced to Cross, he is climbing out of glacial waters and preparing himself for a trek through ice-capped mountains en route to a fellow agent’s isolated cottage, fighting off wolves on the way. So far, so good. Now pay attention: Cross is an agent who was genetically enhanced through a CIA program named ‘Operation Outcome’, which Jason Bourne publicly exposed at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum. The government organisation believes it’s time to shut down the program once and for all – by killing off its agents one by one. Cross keeps himself fit and healthy using two medications as his fellow agents are ruthlessly terminated. Renner is solid in the role, delivering his dialogue with aplomb and looking

the part in the sprawling action sequences, but there’s no escaping that he’s not quite as engaging as Damon. Thankfully Rachel Weisz’s turn as the innocent scientist-cum-lifesaver Dr Marta Shearling gives the film some emotional weight. Other elements don’t fare quite as well. The fast-paced, scientific dialogue may leave some viewers scratching their heads. A flashback sequence shows Cross as a younger man being interrogated after a savage beating, and is never revisited or explained. Australian actor Shane Jacobson, of Kenny fame, inexplicably shows up as a factory boss in the Philippines. Even Edward Norton, playing the film’s central antagonist Eric Byer, can’t bring enough to the table to ever seem like a real threat. Directed by Tony Gilroy, co-writer of the first three films, Legacy is perfectly enjoyable, but ultimately undercut by a baffling plot, underdeveloped characters and a sloppy ending.

Message from the Mayor of Moorabool

The Shire of Melton is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Australia, offering the best in urban and rural lifestyles. Melton Shire Council offers more than160 different services and programs to residents across our community including maternal and child health, libraries, business advice for entrepreneurs, recreational facilities, waste collection, and Planned Activity Groups for seniors. As a council, we work tirelessly to create an inclusive and cohesive community that supports and nurtures its residents. The Shire of Melton boasts many wonderful educational facilities, from pre-schools through to secondary and tertiary institutions. Our municipality is strategically located, with excellent road infrastructure to service metropolitan Melbourne and beyond. Our proximity and easy access to freeways, airports and ports with easy access to major industrial hubs, makes the shire an attractive choice for business and investors alike. As a growth municipality, council continues to provide our community with the new infrastructure required to meet increasing demands. In the past 12 months, council has celebrated the opening of a number of new facilities and services, including the Springside Community Pavilion and the Taylors Hill Youth and Community Centre. We have also upgraded Melton West Children’s Centre to increase capacity and completed a significant upgrade to the Navan Park play space for our community to enjoy. Work is progressing well on the new Melton Library and Learning Hub, a landmark facility which will strengthen regional library, community and learning resources, and will improve access to education, training, employment and business opportunities not only in the shire, but within the western metropolitan region and beyond. It is indeed an exciting time to live in Melton Shire.

In writing this ‘Showcasing our Communities’ response, I reflected on the past year in Moorabool Shire Council and the myriad achievements council has overseen - achievements that will be a part of the Moorabool community for many years, such as the Lerderderg Library and the Darley Civic and Community Hub. I mentioned in this report last year my admiration for the optimism, natural beauty and a population with the human qualities of resilience, sociability, innovation and enthusiasm. I firmly believe these attributes have been instrumental in the recent growth we have experienced in not only the population of our shire but also the 40 per cent growth in visitor numbers in the past 12 months. Around 427,000 people visited our shire in the 12 months to 31 March, a testament to not only the outstanding attractions – both natural and created – but also the hospitality of the Moorabool people. The Regional and Rural Expo earlier this year was also tremendously successful in promoting our region to people in Melbourne as a place to visit, but also as a place to live. And work. I spoke with many people who were most impressed by what we have to offer and our proximity to Melbourne. Finally, in October, the Moorabool community will elect new shire councillors for the next four years through a postal ballot conducted by the Victorian Electoral Commission. In the next few months, some of our citizens will make the important decision to stand for council and put themselves forward to be your local representative, and they will state their vision for our future and endeavour to win your support. So think hard when you cast your vote, and make sure you do vote as we have a great democracy and you need to be part of it.

On the comeback trail The Bacchus Marsh district’s Aborigine population fell to dangerously low levels in the mid-19th century, but now the outer-western region has the fastest-growing indigenous population in Australia. Carole Levy reports. COIMADAI, Djerriwarrh, Korkiperrimul, Lerderderg, Merrimu and Myrniong ... They’re all familiar names in the Melton-Bacchus Marsh areas and a legacy of the early Aboriginal clans of Kurungjung-balluk and Mapeang-balluk, who were the first custodians of land on both sides of the Werribee River. From the 1840-50s, corroborees of between 150 and 400 Aborigines were held close to settlements at Melton and Bacchus Marsh. Groups are also known to have camped at the Werribee River’s Cobbledick’s Ford. But by 1863, there were just 33 Aborigines left in the Bacchus Marsh district. Sadly, few artefacts or detailed records remain of the first inhabitants, though some artefact scatters have been found above the Werribee River escarpment and a few scarred trees testify to Aboriginal lives. Today, there are about 700 Aboriginal people living in Melton and about 60 in Bacchus Marsh. In fact, the western region has the fastest-growing indigenous population in Australia. The Melton’s close-knit Koori community enjoys the support of the Kirrip Aboriginal Corporation, an association established about eight years ago when six friends combined to ‘‘get something going’’. Elder and corporation events organiser ‘Aunty Rhonda’ says Kirrip,

which now has nine board members, plays an important role. ‘‘We organise events that support our culture and traditions,’’ she says. ‘‘We run art classes, incorporating music and dance, so our young people can learn. For example, one of our youngsters has learnt to play the didgeridoo, and we have our own dance troupe,” Aunty explains. ‘‘Every month, we’re part of the Local Indigenous Network’s ‘Respect Your Mob, Respect Your Family’ program which runs right across the western region. ‘‘Basket-weaving, the art of making clap sticks and other traditional crafts are woven into the teaching about traditions and respect.’’ About 18 months ago, four families got together and organised Food Share, an initiative that now regularly provides meals for 28 families. ‘‘We have plans to take our young people camping to teach them cultural values and traditions. We also organise regular bus trips as community outings,’’ Aunty Rhonda said. One thing Kirrip lacks is a ‘home of their own’, and it now meets at Djerriwarrh House. ‘‘We have trophies, artefacts and photos but nowhere to display them,’’ Aunty Rhonda laments. ‘‘But we have plans...’’

A stack of options ONCE known only as a pizza shop, Saks in Melton has been revamped and now opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a fresh menu that’s sure to please. Owner Sabina Tursunovic says it was her passion for food that made it easy to convert the eatery. ‘‘When we bought the business in February our desire was to cater to the wider community so we increased our menu,’’ Sabina says. ‘‘We have a passion for food and it shows in our homemade meals. We pride ourselves on the food and beverages we make and are only satisfied when our customers are.’’ A family-run affair, Sabina’s son is in charge of creating delicious pizzas while her daughter is an all-rounder at the cafe. Saks’ new menu starts with breakfast including egg and bacon muffins, and pan-fried mushrooms on continental bread with eggs. For lunch, there are a range of soups, salads, and pastas while sandwiches and rolls can be made fresh on the spot. To finish with there is a selection of homemade cakes, slices and cupcakes. With seating for 30 people, Saks can cater for functions large or small. ‘‘People weren’t able to sit down and have a meal before but now they can come in and enjoy the atmosphere and good food. ‘‘And if they dine in, children under five can eat for free.” Saks Melton, at 1/311 High Street, Melton, opens 7.30am-10pm, Monday-Saturday, and 5-10pm Sunday.

The science of learning is fun A SPECIALIST science centre is helping teachers and students in Melbourne’s western suburbs and across Victoria discover the world around them. Based in Bacchus Marsh, Ecolinc is a Department of Education and Early Childhood Development initiative focusing on environmental science programs for teachers and students. The centre offers students from foundation to year 12 interactive curriculum programs — on-site, off-site and online. Ecolinc director Suzanne Clark says the centre is offering support for schools to access outreach programs. Support for off-site outreach includes an Ecolinc education officer who will conduct a tailored program in the teacher’s classroom. All foundation to year 10 programs follow the Australian curriculum, with VCE biology, chemistry, environmental science and physics courses and resources provided. Ecolinc’s website aims to make learning science fun and interactive, with two new online programs called Discovering Wetlands and Watching the Weather designed for years 5 to 8 students. Discovering Wetlands enables students and teachers to explore Ecolinc’s virtual wetland. It includes a teacher and student navigator, a talk with the experts, macro-invertebrate

identification application, virtual wetland tour, interactive quiz, information about wetlands through the seasons and managing wetland ecosystems. ‘‘Watching the Weather provides student and teacher resources to use in conjunction with the Ecolinc weather wall,” Suzanne says. “Resources include making weather instruments, a webcam passport, being a weather presenter, meteorology quiz, photo gallery and glossary.” Ecolinc has also received funding from the Department of Sustainability and Environment to develop an online education program based on the biodiversity of the western volcanic plains. Teachers can register to learn more about Ecolinc by attending a teacher professional learning day on: • Friday, September 14: Investigating biodiversity in the wetland (years 5-8). • Friday, November 23: Biodiversity of the western volcanic plains, online — including a visit to Mt Rothwell (years 5-8). • Friday, December 7: VCE science. For more information, visit ecolinc.vic.edu.au.

Keeping pace with Melton Shire’s growth IN less than 20 years, it is predicted the Shire of Melton will have a population of more than a quarter-million. The shire presently has about 116,000 people within its borders so the projected growth rate is quite phenomenal. But, says mayor Justin Mammarella, the region is keeping apace with the many changes necessitated by unprecedented growth.

Moorabool delight: a land of opportunity TWO-THIRDS of Moorabool Shire is made up of water catchments, state forests and national parks and, with its semi-rural feel, is a desirable place for people wanting to combine country living with easy access to the city and major regional centres. It’s not surprising that the area’s population has grown by 14 per cent in the past decade, now topping around 28,600 people. The shire not only has picturesque scenery, first-class services and affordable homes and land, it offers a plentiful supply of work opportunities. And the shire enjoys the highest median income and employment levels within the Central Highlands region. Agriculture and horticulture remain integral to the shire’s economy, and are joined by residential growth, retail and service industries, light manufacturing and tourism as emerging economic drivers. New investment has emerged in the horticulture sector this year, when a state-of-the-art mushroom production facility opened in Parwan. It’s expected to provide about 80 fulltime jobs. New residential estates in Bacchus Marsh and Ballan provide plentiful work opportunities for trades and businesses supplying the construction industry. Many young families from metropolitan Melbourne are taking advantage of land prices about 20-25 per cent lower

than Melbourne’s. Prospective residents have a variety of appealing living options in 64 different localities, hamlets and towns within the shire. Multimillion-dollar developments into community projects include: • The Bacchus Marsh Main Street redevelopment, • The new Lerderderg Library • Bacchus Marsh Civic and Community Hub • Blackwood Reserve Community Recreation Facility • Wallace childcare hub • Wallace recreation reserve • Darley Park Oval Redevelopmen The variety of eateries continues to expand and new markets, such as Ballan Farmers’ Market, is attracting visitors from far and wide. The arts scene is on the rise, aquatic pursuits on the lake and rivers have returned post drought, health services have expanded and rural transport connections have increased mobility in remote parts of the shire. Moorabool Shire can rightfully claim a unique vibrancy, unrivalled liveability and opportunities reaching far into the future.

Perfect fit for family This property has all the ingredients for the good life, writes Carole Levy t’s often in the detail that causes a house to shine just that bit more brightly than its counterparts. In this one, on an elevated corner block of about 1011 square metres, it’s things like an unexpected angled ceiling, well-placed wall niches, porcelain floor tiles, extra-height internal doors and two sets of timber-framed bi-fold doors that earn it extra style points. Not to mention the colour palette, a beautiful olive green accented by white, that couples with a more conventional chocolate/latte combo elsewhere. And it’s a big house, with big rooms well positioned for all aspects of a family lifestyle. The main bedroom near the front end

has enough space for a parents’ retreat area, twin walk-through wardrobes and an en suite with dual vanity basins. Three other bedrooms (with wardrobes) are down a back hallway and flank a children’s lounge room. A separate toilet and gleaming main bathroom are close by. Both open and carpeted, the study and lounge room are ranged along the entry hall, as is the large laundry with garage access. The lounge room has bi-fold doors to an integrated alfresco zone, as does the meals area in the family hub. The casual living area surrounding the kitchen is big and light-filled, and a separate, carpeted rumpus room with backyard access is a downtime haven. Benchtop-to-ceiling splash-

back tiles add a stylish element to the kitchen which has a Caesarstone-topped island bench under pendant lights, a two-door walk-in pantry and Blanco 900mm gas cooker and dishwasher. The big backyard has oodles of grass, raised border gardens edged with sleepers, a concretepaved area and a garden shed. Within walking distance of a milk bar, playground and park, this property has all the ingredients for the good life.

om Walkinshaw may no longer be with us, but his spirit lives on in Melbourne where the company that carries his name, Walkinshaw Performance (WP), still produces some very interesting hot machines. Obviously WP will always be thought of in terms of ultra-quick Commodores, but take a look at the WP Hot Cruze Hot Hatch to see what we mean in the way of variety. Cruze Hot Hatch has received a very significant power boost. Upgrades for the already-good 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engines give it 80 per cent more power and 50 per cent more torque. That is, power is up from 103 kW to 180 kW and torque has been lifted from 200 Nm to 310 Nm. These are the sort of numbers you would expect from a 3.2-litre six-cylinder engine. In a small-medium hatch they result in stunning performance. The engine features an upgraded turbo and exhaust manifold. Keeping all the extra power firmly on the road are an upgraded and suspension

T

Real deal: Wait until you see the styling statement the hot WP Cruze Hot Hatch makes in the metal. package developed with Bilstein and 18 x 8 alloy wheels. This particular Cruze Hot Hatch has had its exterior wrapped in matt white by Exotic Graphics and looks stunning in the metal, though it must be admitted that publishing shots of a white car in a newspaper doesn’t do it a lot of favours. This sort of engineering doesn’t come cheap, WP quotes $19,995 for the package – to which has to be added the cost of the car you choose to have improved.

The team at AWD Automotive goes the extra mile for its Melton clients by providing a pick-up and drop-off service when their car is being worked on. Happy customers include Veronica, of Kurunjang and Sian, of Romsey. ‘‘They were courteous, fast, efficient and not expensive at all,’’ Veronica says. ‘‘In fact, they were less than half the price some others quoted. I just needed a few things checked, fluids topped up and brakes and tyres checked before a long trip.’’ Sian adds: ‘‘I was going to another mechanic for a while and was told about AWD and thought I would try them out. I went there for a service on my Holden and found the staff to be very welcoming and helpful. My car is going great and I highly recommend them to everyone I know.’’ The business is a VACC-accredited workshop.

Central nails down finals spot BY TEO PELLIZZERI MELTON Central will play Riddell District Football League finals after a landmark win against Romsey in which the reigning premier was held goalless in three quarters. Central’s 6.10 (46) to 4.4 (28) win at Romsey Park put the Blues a game and a half ahead of seventh-placed Wallan with a round to play, defusing this weekend’s match against fifthplaced Macedon which had for a number of weeks shaped as do or die. Romsey was scoreless in the opening term and kicked all four of its goals in the second quarter before failing to fire in the second half. Melton Central coach Brian Wheelahan said

the senior team’s run of seven wins in the last nine games was the best two months at the club in a long time. ‘‘A lot of hard work has gone on behind the scenes and on the field it’s great for the playing group to get some reward,’’ Wheelahan said. ‘‘You never celebrate until the siren goes but I’m still pinching myself, to be honest. I know it’s only local footy but to have a win like that . . . we really think we’ve got some unfinished business, we don’t want to make up the numbers.’’ Wheelahan said previous encounters against top teams had been over before half-time and a good start was critical to competing. ‘‘If we made it a scrap it would give us the best opportunity, it was really a hard slog underfoot

and for the majority of the day it was one-onone. We’ve got that belief, that with 22 contributors our best can push most sides.’’ Wheelahan singled out Shane Frederickson as best afield and defender Josh Armstrong, who kept Romsey’s league-leading goalkicker Matt Davidson to a single goal. ‘‘The run [Frederickson] provided off half back was terrific, he’s been our most consistent performer all year,’’ Wheelahan said. ‘‘We have a few guys that are genuinely sore, but even though we’ve cemented our spot we want to continue the momentum. ‘‘The sting might be out of the [Macedon] game but we still want to treat it like an elimination final because winning form is good form.’’

Top two teams to tangle twice MELTON Central secured a top-two finish and back-toback clashes against Macedon with an 11-goal win against Romsey in Riddell District Netball League A-grade at the weekend. The 42-31 win closed the door on any hopes the Redbacks had of finishing top two, sealing Melton Central and Macedon (both 14-1) in for the qualifying final in two weeks time. However the duo also clash this weekend with top spot on the line. The Blues currently hold top with 197.97 per-cent from Macedon on 194.81. Elsewhere, Diggers Rest 20 lost to Broadford 49, Rockbank 19 lost to Riddell 84, Sunbury Kangaroos and Wallan tied 44-all and Macedon 87 defeated Kilmore 13.

INBRIEF Soccer Melton’s charge back into contention for promotion from FFV provisional league 3 northwest continued on Saturday with a 6-2 hammering of Fawkner. The Phoenix went into the match expecting to beat the relegation battler and did so to close the gap to second place and potential promotion to just three points. However games in hand due to even more postponed fixtures have skewed the ladder. Melton is one of just two teams in the 12-team league to have played 18 of 18 fixtures this season. Darebin United (played 18, 39 points, plus 10 goal difference) leads the league from Heidelberg Stars (17, 36, +33), Bundoora United (16, 35, +15) and Melton in fourth (18, 33, +21). Melton plays last-placed Balmoral at MacPherson Park from 3pm this Saturday.

Harness racing The cream of talent from both Australia and New Zealand were in attendance at Tabcorp Park Melton on Sunday to compete at the richest day of Australian Harness Racing – Blue Chip Farms Australasian Breeders Crown Day, where $1.6 million in stakes was up for grabs in the Finals for Two, Three and Four year old pacers and trotters, all races being over the distance of 2240 metres. On paper, the Kiwis appeared to have a huge advantage over their Australian counterparts, with friendly rivalry taking place all throughout the day. To cap off a memorable day, it was the Aussies who prevailed winning five of the big finals compared to New Zealand’s four, with driving honours going to Chris Alford and Kate Gath who each snared a double. WINNERS: 4-Y-0 Trotters Final (Elegant Image – Andy & Kate Gath Long Forest), 2-Y-0 Trotters Final (Blitztemcalder – Ross Payne (Lara) & Chris Alford), 4-Y-0 Mares (Miss Moonlight – Andrew Stuart (Rangiora) & John Caldow), 3-Y-0 Trotters (Triumphant Monarch – Chris Alford T/D( Bolinda), 2-Y-0 Colts & Geldings (Bit Of A Legend – Cran Dalgety (Christchurch) & Dexter Dunn), 3-Y-0 Fillies (Cheer The Lady – Barry Purdon (Clevedon – Auckland) & Zac Butcher), 3-Y-0 Colts & Geldings (Fly Like An Eagle – Mark Purdon T/D (Christchurch), 4-Y-0 Entires & Geldings (Caribbean Blaster (Andy & Kate Gath Long Forest), 2-Y-0 Fillies (Glenferrie Shuffle – Craig Demmler (Parwan) & Gavin Lang). — Len Baker

Cobras’ finals hopes alive BACCHUS Marsh could not close out the Ballarat Netball League top six at the weekend but remains a warm favourite for a finals berth despite a defeat from Ballarat. The 48-52 loss means the sixth-placed Cobras must beat one-win, last-placed Sebastopol this weekend to guarantee sixth place and a spot in the finals. Ballarat (7-8) drew level on wins with Bacchus Marsh (7-1-7) but the Marsh’s drawn-game advantage means it will finish sixth through a win in the final home-andaway round. Melton comfortably accounted for Sebastopol at the weekend with a 55-26 win at MacPherson Park. The result means the Bloods will finish fourth and play fifth-placed Darley in an elimination final. In other results, Melton South 20 lost to Redan 68, Sunbury 46 defeated North

BACCHUS Marsh made Ballarat work hard but ultimately couldn’t deny the Swans a win to seal their top-six status in Ballarat Football League at the weekend. The game, moved to Melton Recreation Reserve due to flooding of Maddingley Park, ended in a 10.14 (74) to 9.8 (62) win to Ballarat. Bacchus Marsh kicked the first and only goal of the first quarter in a period where they stopped the Ballarat run and put pressure on them to hamper their ball use. However, all this changed in the

second term and Ballarat gained control and made it look easy in the tough conditions. The Swans kicked four goals to one in the quarter with Matt Dawson outstanding off half-back and Ash Baker gathering plenty of the ball through the middle. Tyson Shea was again leading the way for the Cobras. Even though the scoreboard said the margin was only a couple of goals at half-time, Ballarat had the game on its terms. With goals to Nick Garner and Braeden Deary in the third term and the Swans out to a five-goal lead at three-quarter time, it

appeared to be game over. Bacchus Marsh had other ideas, though. The Cobras came out and kicked six goals in the final term after recording only three to threequarter time. Power forward Pasi Schawlger kicked two last-term goals after being kept quiet previously. Ultimately it was the siren that beat the Cobras.

Young bloods perform MELTON has bookended its long Ballarat Football League season with a morale boosting 35-point victory over Sebastopol. The Bloods earnt their third victory of the season on Saturday, defeating Sebastopol 9.10 (64) to 4.5 (29) at MacPherson Park to end their season on a winning note. “We have finished off well. It was great for the boys to enjoy a win at home,” Melton coach Bob Heaney said. “It has been a tough year because we didn’t make the most of our chances earlier in the year. “We beat Darley first round and we were up against Bacchus Marsh before losing it. We were also right in it against Lake Wendouree. “You lose a couple of close ones and when you are trying to break a losing culture, which we have at the moment, it might have done a lot for self belief. We’re still learning how to win them.” After a tight first quarter, Melton started taking its chances on the scoreboard in the second quarter to establish a 27-point advantage at halftime. There was a minor Sebastopol revival in the third quarter, the Kookaburras closing within 15-points at the final change, before the home team sealed the match with the wind in the last quarter with three unanswered goals. Heaney said the Bloods would continue to look to the future. “If you look at the year as a whole, we know where our list is at. Maybe if you look at what Ballarat was doing five years ago I think we’re trying to do the same things,” he said. “We’ve done our contracts and everyone has recommitted. We just have to bring in a few experienced blokes over the top. “All the guys we’ve brought in this year are under-25 and it’s still about building the list with players who will be with us for four, five or six years.” — Gav McGrath, Ballarat Courier

Resurgent Jets playing for pride BY LANCE JENKINSON

SCOREBOARD

THE Western Jets are going down swinging in the TAC Cup. The Jets are one of the form teams since the start of June with six wins from their past nine outings after recovering from a horror start. They left another positive footprint on Saturday with a 77-point dismantling of Bendigo Pioneers at Epsom Huntly Reserve. Finals are beyond the Jets, but coach Steven Kretiuk told the Weekly that his side has plenty to play for when they meet arch-rivals Calder Cannons in the last home-and-away game at Highgate Recreation Reserve on Saturday morning. ‘‘They embarrassed us last time we played,’’ he said, pointing to a 112-point defeat in round four. ‘‘It’s about our pride and putting a really good performance out there. ‘‘We want our top-age players having their last impact at TAC Cup level putting something forward to the recruiters and our bottom-age players seeing where they’re at in terms of playing against arguably one of the best teams in the competition.’’ The Jets have been superb defensively in back-toback wins over the past fortnight.

Western Jets 15.10 (100) d Bendigo Pioneers 3.5 (23) Western Jets — Goals: L. Hunter 6, S. White 3, C. Nastasi 2, A. Brown 2, J. Greiser , J. Bench 1 Best: S. White, L. Hunter, S. Critchley, J. Robinson, J. Sicily, A. Elkasovic.

They restricted the Pioneers to just three goals in a miserly display. ‘‘When they had the wind, we really stepped up the defensive aspects of our game and made it hard for them to score,’’ Kretiuk said. ‘‘It was obviously the telling factor in the game.’’ Sam Critchley was solid as a rock for the Jets down back. The key defender was not outpointed in a single contest and used the ball well on the rebound. The Jets had a dominant forward line, led by sixgoal star Lachie Hunter. The 17-year-old, son of Mark and potential fatherson prospect for the Western Bulldogs, capped a fine week after receiving an invitation to October’s NAB AFL Draft Combine.

Hunter, who usually plays as a hard-running midfielder, was confined to the attacking 50 due to a bout of osteitis pubis and appeared at ease in the role close to goal. ‘‘He hasn’t trained for a while so we had to play him as a small forward,’’ Kretiuk said. ‘‘He made good position, read the ball well in the wind and judged the flight of the footy much better than most other players in the game.’’ With three goals, Spencer White was the other dominant forward for the Jets. Kretiuk says a modified training plan is paying dividends for a player he dubbed ‘‘the most dynamic tall forward in the competition’’. ‘‘We just think in the first half of the year he didn’t take the steps we expected him to,’’ he said. ‘‘We formulated a program he had to complete every Tuesday before he could join in with the group and he’s done that week in week out and it’s certainly improved his footy. It was all about the way he reads the footy, the second and third efforts and just playing the basics of the game. ‘‘He was outstanding today, playing his role in the side and not trying to be someone he’s not.’’ The first bounce of the Jets stoush with the Cannons will be at 11am.

Experienced heads prevail SIX final-quarter goals have seen Redan home against Melton South in a scrappy affair at City Oval on Saturday. With the sides neck and neck for the majority of the contest, it took the experienced Redan heads of Jarrod Edwards, Damian Horbury and Ryan Waight to turn the game in favour in the Lions, who won 12.9 (81) to the Panthers’ 5.10 (40). Marc Dransman controlled the ruck for the visitors and also went forward to kick an important goal in the second quarter, keeping Melton South within three points at the main break. The final term was where the game was won for Redan, as the class and skill of the reigning premier proved too much for the Panthers, who appeared to run out of legs. Melton South coach Shane Geddes touched upon the fatigue aspect after the game. “For three quarters we were in the game. They got away from us in the last quarter where they showed a bit of polish and we were a bit fatigued,” he said. “Their good players also played well. I thought we could have maybe got a bit closer but it was under two goals at three-quarter time so it wasn’t all that bad in the end.” Go to meltonweekly.com.au for an action gallery from the Bloods’ win — Michael Hankin, Ballarat Courier
