Melton powers on...... and oh what a feeling!

y l i m a f n o s i Harr From Keith and Joan Harrison’s humble service station beginnings on High Street in 1973 to Grant Harrison’s outstanding facilities on the same street today, the journey has become one rich in community spirit. Melton’s population has grown since then from about 5000 to more than 125,400 today, with 241,000 expected to be reached

by 2031. The year Keith and Joan started building their future, the Sydney Opera House was officially opened, Richmond took out the AFL premiership, the voting age was lowered to 18, Keiren Perkins was born, Alvin Purple was on the big screen and Melton was declared a satellite city a year later.

A Melton & Moorabool Weekly special feature

Tracking Melton’s growth the Harrison way The Harrison family has been part of Melton for generations, with roots going deep into the community. Active church members and participants in many community groups, the Harrisons have always adhered to family values, a principle that’s guided them into actions and ambitions for their future.

“It’s about humility, challenges, flexibility. It’s about listening and supporting staff, customers and family alike. It’s about a little service station on High Street and how we remain true to the same ideals we had back in 1973.”

On Keith and Joan Harrison’s retirement in 2002, their eldest son Grant took the reins of the Harrison legacy after 12 years’ training in all facets of the business.

Melton Toyota, the longest serving single-owned dealership in the network, was just the start. The family went on to establish Harrison Hyundai, Suzuki Cars & Bikes, Ford F Trucks & Chevrolet Silverados, Opposite Lock franchise and other business concerns.

Grant explains his commitment and business philosophy.

Last year, Melton Toyota became one of just three Melbourne dealerships to be awarded Toyota’s

prestigious 5-Star Customer Service Award which is based on customer surveys. “The surveys ask our customers how they feel about dealing with us. They are sent out and collated by a third party so we have no influence over the results,” says Grant. “Needless to say, we are very proud of this award and very grateful to our customers for rating our service so highly.” The Harrisons have consistently maintained their support of locals and other Melton businesses. They provide employment for more than 120 local families and aim to spend as much money locally as possible.

And just when you thought the Harrisons couldn’t get any busier, Grant and wife Gayle are now the 2014/15 ambassadors for Relay For Life. The role is tailor-made for this dynamic couple whose focus on others is the cornerstone of all they set out to achieve. “It’s a two-way street,” Grant enthuses. “Locals spend their automotive dollars with us and we give back, through wages, business supply purchases and grassroots community support. I can’t think of a better business model.”

Toyota Motor Corporation Australia congratulates Grant Harrison along with the Harrison Family and all the team at Melton Toyota for achieving 40 years as a Toyota dealership. Melton Toyota has been and remains a model dealership in the Toyota family, aspiring to and maintaining outstanding levels of performance. Re-investment in a magnificent new facility shows their commitment to the local community, ensuring that customers enjoy high levels of comfort when visiting the dealership. Whether it be sales, parts or service, Melton Toyota embrace the Toyota way in their activities, continually reviewing their operations to ensure the customer is absolutely central in every activity. In 2013, Melton Toyota had the highest customer satisfaction ratings of all metropolitan dealers, a true testament to their customer focus.

school’s in: heathdale celebrates campus opening

seeing is believing, say residents

MELTON

Former Mowbray College pupils are among the students enrolled at a new Melton school that was officially opened last week. Heathdale Christian College, which has operated in Werribee for more than 30 years, has almost 30 pupils from prep to grade 4 enrolled at its Melton campus, located at the former Mowbray site in Centenary Avenue. Head of the junior school, Lyn Moffett, said pupils received “certificates of commencement” during a celebration last Thursday, which was also attended by some people from the former Mowbray. “They were very excited to see what we’ve done with the place,” said college spokeswoman Annisa Croxon. Mowbray College collapsed under the weight of massive debts in June 2012, leaving about 1200 students and 200 staff without a school. \ PRISCILLA MOCA

Overcrowding and inadequate staff training at Melton’s two existing prisons in Ravenhall are among the problems revealed by a Victorian Ombudsman’s report into deaths and harm in custody. Ombudsman George Brouwer said he was concerned with many elements of the prison system, including lack of funding for new and existing infrastructure, overcrowding, increased assaults of prisoners and staff members, and increased cases of self-harm leading to prisoner deaths. A director of the Human Rights Law Centre told Mr Brouwer they had spoken to prisoners who had been locked in their cells for days on end. ‘‘It’s getting worse, particularly at the [Metropolitan] Remand Centre [in Ravenhall],’’ the director said.

RAVENHALL

Bus routes stopping at three railway stations yet to be built have been included in new plans released by the Transport Department. The documents, tabled at an east-west link planning panel last month, have buses stopping and starting at Toolern, Toolern East and Caroline Springs train stations by 2021. While time frames for Caroline Springs station – up and running by 2016 – and Toolern station – part of a 10-year plan that started in 2012 – have previously been stated, a Toolern East station has yet to be confirmed. Public Transport Victoria’s Adrian Darwent said the documents were for planning purposes and did not necessarily represent commitments regarding capital spending or infrastructure works. Mr Darwent said the Metropolitan Planning Authority’s growth areas plan noted the “opportunity for a new station” in the Toolern East area. The plan lists two stations in the Melton corridor, at Toolern and a possible station at Paynes Road, on the Toolern East border. But Melton Residents Association president Peter Rowan said he would only believe promises about new stations and extra services when they were operating. “I see this situation time and time again,” he said. “[Governments] are notoriously slow at providing services in new estates.” \ TM

Controversial plans for the extension of a north-west landfill site should be halted until “significant” odour issues are addressed, according to Brimbank council. Formally objecting to Boral’s plans to expand its Ravenhall facility – which is in Melton City – Brimbank chairman John Watson said any increases should be made in strict, incremental stages. “It’s too much too soon,’’ he said. ‘‘Clearly there are problems with it. Our residents are taking the brunt of the odour issues.” Brimbank has no jurisdiction in the matter, which could go before Melton council by June. Boral’s application seeks to extend its operations by 179 million cubic metres. If approved, it would create one of the biggest garbage dumps in Australia.

Brimbank administrator John Tanner said “Residents have indicated the odour from the site was important but “must be managed the landfill is significant and are personally properly”. recording the date and times of odour Two petitions objecting to Boral’s plans have occurrences,” the report said. attracted about 6000 signatures.

The Ballarat Magistrates’ Court has heard that Moorabool Shire Council prosecutors, leading a case where a seven-year-old girl was allegedly mauled by a family dog, did not record an audio interview with the victim. It comes as prosecution case informant Lisa Handley confirmed all of the accused’s interviews had been recorded on audio tape on July 1 last year. Denise, Anthony and Stuart Wilson are each charged with offences relating to injury caused by dog bite for an incident that occurred last June 22. Stuart and Denise Wilson are the victim’s grandparents and Anthony Wilson is her uncle. The girl was allegedly bitten on the face by kelpie “Mack” at her grandparents’ Balliang property. Prosecution witness, surgeon Dr Michael Lowe said the girl had sustained lacerations and abrasions to her face, lost a tooth and required surgery as a result of the incident. Defence lawyer Phil Brown argued council’s prosecutors had failed to record an audio interview with one of their key witnesses at her Bacchus Marsh home on August 9 last year. Before magistrate Peter Mithen last Wednesday, Mr Brown called the prosecution’s instructing solicitor, Matthew Sherwell, to the stand. Mr Sherwell, who is employed by Maddocks Lawyers and does not have specialist training in interviewing young children, told the court he did not use a recording device during the interview because he did not want to create an “undue traumatic experience” for the victim. Mr Sherwell said he was satisfied with the interview and had recorded it in his notes and in an email to Ms Handley. The hearing resumes on April 29. \ BALLARAT COURIER

Melton and Bacchus Marsh commuters who travel to Melbourne for work will benefit from cheaper train fares under changes to the metropolitan rail network pricing structure. From January 1 next year, anyone who currently purchases a zone 1 and 2 ticket will only have to pay the price of a zone 1 fare. Rockbank, Melton and Bacchus Marsh are all zone 2 stations. While Bacchus Marsh is beyond the metropolitan network, Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder’s spokeswoman

“Specifically regarding Melton, we regard the two-hour service frequency as a much greater deterrent to using the train service than the level of fares,’’ Mr Morton said. “We believe people in Deer Park, Caroline Springs and Melton would be much better off having the line duplicated and the frequency increased to match other Melbourne suburban trains, compared to having the current two two-hour non-service with a discounted fare.” \ TARA MURRAY and PRISCILLA MOCA

Theatre enthusiasts are involved in talks to launch an amateur playhouse and production company in Bacchus Marsh. Moorabool councillor John Spain said the creation of a group to put on musicals, radio shows and plays would provide a valuable social outlet and could uncover hidden talents. “We could have anything to do with entertainment, even a movie night where we show locally made movies,” he said. “The past six weeks has been about discovering where there’s interest, and we’re hoping to get this thing rolling and attract younger people and families.” Bacchus Marsh resident and sketchwriter Herman Jansik was part of the former Bacchus Marsh Players in the 1980s. “We used to put on all sorts of little shows, from old English pub shows and songs, to cockney shows and singalongs,” the 75-year-old recalls. “And all to a packed hall. We made a fair bit of money and it all went to the hospital, and that’s what we should bring back.”

Moorabool’s strategic plan identified Underbank “for future investigation’’. It does not refer to it as potential residential. Previous councils agreed never to rezone Underbank as residential as it is not in our town’s best interests. The site is clearly unsuitable for 400-square-metre blocks on a flood plain. It’s land that would clearly be better used for agriculture. If Bacchus Marsh needs more residential subdivision, then there are better places that will not destroy the liveability of the place.

10 MELTON & MOORABOOL WEEKLY \ APRIL 1, 2014

My shout clearly a hangover from the previous administration. Let’s set the record straight, Mr Griffin. You were mayor when the controversial Underbank proposal received a green light from the council. The minutes of the meeting clearly show no objection from the mayor of the day. As for your claims of overdevelopment, it’s implausible that the ex-mayor that presided over some of the worst development projects in Bacchus Marsh’s history should be critical of what was clearly a procedural motion in terms of council process. NEIL DE SILVA \ VIA WEB ALCOHOL VIOLENCE Alcohol-fuelled violence has been a hot topic for years, but lately the public debate has shifted to the underlying Australian drinking culture at the heart of this issue. VicHealth’s research shows drinking is seen as normal in most social situations, from funerals to children’s birthday parties, to the footy and everything in between.

So it’s not surprising we’re starting to question whether alcohol is needed to enjoy our social lives. VicHealth thinks this conversation is an important step towards changing the alcohol culture in Victoria. We’ve asked Victorians aged from 16 to 29 years to come up with a creative name for the point in the night when clear thinking turns into more drinking. Go to namethatpoint.com to take part in the conversation. Anyone who votes for the top name has the chance to win $1000. JERRIL RECHTER \ VICHEALTH CEO

The Napthine government’s pledge to scrap the higher train fare between zones 1 and 2 (which has been matched by the Labor Opposition) is great news for outer-suburban commuters and not just because of the lower cost to get to work. It should also ease traffic congestion because many people will now feel compelled to leave their car at home and use their local zone 2 station rather than drive down the line to pay zone 1 fares. It should also free up car parking spaces at dual-zone stations such as Albion, Laverton and Glenroy, making it easier for commuters coming from surrounding areas not serviced by the Public Transport Victoria train network. Of course, this will encourage more people to use the trains so it needs to be backed up by measures to ensure the system can keep up with any increase in demand. \ DAVID BONNICI \ EDITOR

Donna Zabinskas was inspired to open the Greendale Wildlife Shelter more than 17 years ago after seeing a nearby rescue project. “Back then there was the Blackwood Wildlife Shelter, which was run by one woman in a little house,” Ms Zabinskas said. “We became more active and the more people got to know, the more animals came, and enclosures got built.”

Ms Zabinskas runs the non-profit emergency shelter with her son Damien. They rescue and rehabilitate injured, sick and orphaned wildlife. Proceeds from a pet show being held as part of the Blackwood Woodchop Easter Carnival on April 19 will help meet the shelter’s running costs of up to $20,000 a year. \ PM » wildlifeshelter.org.au/greendale.html » http://on.fb.me/1fbZmYJ

info sought on armed robbery A man carrying a machete allegedly threatened to kill a convenience store attendant during an armed robbery in Melton last Thursday. Detective Leading Senior Constable Paul Barrow said a man entered the 7-Eleven on Coburns Road about 12.34am and demanded the attendant hand over cash and cigarettes. He said the man – who was wearing a hoodie, gloves and a scarf over his face – threatened to kill the male store attendant if he didn’t fill a backpack with money. The offender fled with $650. Detective Leading Senior Constable Barrow said there were witnesses in the store at the time of the robbery.

Fawkner officers were checking industrial estates about 9.45pm last Wednesday when they were passed by a Holden sedan that revved its engine a number of times. Officers said they stopped the car and spoke to the driver, a 22-year-old Brookfield man, who told them he had

Fawkner Senior Constable Dan Carbonneau said he was shocked by the incident. “Illegal drag or street racing is an incredibly dangerous and risky activity. I am at a loss as to why anyone would attend and put their own life at risk, let alone that of a child.” The driver and passenger were fined for seatbelt offences.

Eye in the sky Vanessa O’Hanlon shines in any weather, writes SARAH HARRIS

T

he slim blonde is delivering a piece to camera when from behind her lurches a snarling clutch of lost souls, blood streaming down their faces, arms outstretched. You won’t find it on Vanessa O’Hanlon’s official bio, but this is her secret zombie flick. Blink and you will miss her appearance in Dead Country – a movie far more horrible than horrifying which sank pretty much without trace upon release in 2008. Confronted with evidence from her undead past, the national weather presenter for ABC News Breakfast is remarkably gracious. “I don’t think I ever even saw it,” she laughs. “It’s just a tiny reporter part that someone asked me to do and I agreed to before I realised there would be zombies surrounding me.” While it’s highly unlikely that she’ll ever so easily fall into their clutches again, the zombie encounter underscores O’Hanlon’s willingness to step out of her comfort zone. Whether it’s climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, trekking the Kokoda Track, encountering gorillas in Uganda, travelling solo to Sarajevo, at the gym, or the hands-on renovation of a four-bedroom home in North Melbourne, O’Hanlon likes to push herself. She describes her steady ascent from Melton schoolgirl community radio volunteer to one of the national broadcaster’s more popular faces as one of “sheer determination”. This, after all, is a woman who for years spent much of her working day as a traffic reporter doing live crosses from a helicopter, feeling ever-so-slightly nauseated. “I don’t know if you have ever looked down in a chopper, but I used to get a little bit sick,” O’Hanlon admits now. For seven years, on and off, she reported on and filmed real-time road conditions, traffic congestion and accidents for all major radio and television stations including regular spots on Sunrise and the Channel 10 news. During that time she also worked as a host of Melbourne After Dark on Mix 101.1 and

(MICHAEL COPP)

A new jobs program, aimed at helping young people unsure about their future, will be launched in Melton today. YouthNow, which provides education, training and employment support for young people, will run the program at Melton library, providing advice to young adults looking for career guidance. Trainer Maria Cox (pictured) says the CareersNow program is free for 17-to24-year-olds who are not in education or training. “CareersNow will be delivered as a short community education program for those who are still wondering what it is they want to do,” Ms Cox said. “This program has been running successfully from our base at the Visy Cares Hub in Sunshine for over a year and has achieved some amazing results. “We use a career quiz to identify career interests, skills and preferences. Outcomes have included part-time jobs, people returning to school to complete VCAL or VCE, enrolling in a vocational course and volunteering.” Last year, YouthNow and Melton council launched the Building Melton Together

project, designed to help the local building and construction industry meet recruitment needs. YouthNow is also involved in a partnership with the council, Djerriwarrh Education and Community Services, Wesley Mission, Merrimu Services and the Melton Specialist School in delivering a pilot program to help

people with disabilities gain self-confidence and skills in a supportive work environment. YouthNow is open and accessible from 10am-2pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Melton Library and Learning Hub. \ TARA MURRAY » Maria Cox: 0409 169 531

Diggers Rest residents will get the chance to have their say about the creation of a new Sunbury municipality. The Sunbury Out of Hume community consultative committee will conduct a series of listening posts and public forums, including one in Diggers Rest, as part of a four-week consultation period. The meetings are aimed at allowing the committee to hear resident views to take to a local government panel that will decide the new municipal boundaries and transition arrangements, including distribution of assets and delivery of municipal services. Diggers Rest is split between Hume and Melton municipalities, with residents living in Hume likely to be included in the new shire. The Diggers Rest listening post will be at the Diggers Rest General Store this Friday from 4-5pm. Residents can make written submissions until April 14. \ TM » bit.ly/1dyuyCX

Decanter \ BEN THOMAS LOVES HIS CHARDONNAY

I

f you ever bump into me at a wine bar, chances are I’ll be swirling a glass of chardonnay. This noble grape is my favourite white by some distance. When winemaker and head of France’s famous Chablis chardonnay region Louis Moreau hit town recently, I arranged a catch-up to chat about all things chardonnay. Chablis is the only region in France with mono-cépage, where only one grape variety can be used in its wines: chardonnay. Eighteen villages make up the appellation and the wines are divided into four levels: petit chablis, chablis, premier cru and grand cru. Chablis’ winemakers tend to shy away from ageing their wines in oak, comes bottled under screw cap; rare for to keep their purity. Louis Moreau French wine. We’re the only country in “Chablis should have three the world to which some chablis producers characteristics: it should be fresh, it should will ship screw-capped wine.

in the neighbourhood Officially part of the Burgundy region, Chablis shares characteristics with the nearby Champagne. “The first Champagne vineyard is not even an hour’s drive from Chablis,” Moreau says. “The climate, soils, terroir is similar and back in history we were closer to the Count of Champagne rather than the landowners in southern Burgundy.” Until relatively recently, Chablis wasn’t the domain of only chardonnay. “Back in history there was a little bit of pinot noir and gamay, but it was pulled out,” Moreau says. “I remember some of those vineyards when I was younger, but they were used for family consumption and workers. There was always a tank of red wine in the winery but that disappeared and we solely concentrate on chardonnay.”

★★★★★

INTENSE

Grown on steep slopes in a commune called Chichée, this has delightful floral perfume of melon, spice, stonefruit and lemon zest. Seriously delicious honey-tinged melon, stonefruit and grapefruit flavours are laced with minerality. There’s a savoury character, too, plus texture and the lightest of grips and a zippy, refreshing line of acid. Such an evenly balanced wine. Food match \ Cold poached salmon

The average vine age is 25 years. There’s a stalky, chalky perfume to the blossom, citrus and stonefruit aromas that’s rather beguiling. It carries into the mouth, too, and combines nicely with intense lemon, green melon, honeysuckle and saline flavours. It fairly clips along the tongue, with energetic acid and a refreshing finish.

CHALKY

So you love a bargain?

Domaine Oudin Chablis 2011 (Chablis) $41.95; 12.5%

While most petit chablis comes from the north of the region on various soils, Defaix’s organically farmed petit chablis is grown on the region’s famed kimmeridgian soils. It opens with a little sulphuric funk, which blows off (a quick decant is a worthwhile exercise for the impatient) to reveal complex clingstone peach, gunflint, citrus and chalky aromas and flavours. It’s smooth, slippery and refreshing, with a lemon and mineral drive through the finish. Food match \ Rabbit with a creamy mustard sauce

SILKY

French-Canadian Piuze takes grapes from a load of vineyards around Chablis, most of which are home to vines that are more than 40 years old. This smells of nectarine, green melon, lemon and seaspray, with a little yeasty funk. These are mirrored on the rounded palate. There’s a lemon and mineral-flavoured line of acid that cuts through the ripe stonefruit and melon flavours. Starting with a silky texture, it flows delightfully through the mouth. Food match \ Fish pie

Louis Moreau Chablis 2012 (Chablis) $35; 12% ★★★★ ½

There’s a purity to this wine, with stonefruit, citrus and blossom, ripe apple and a touch of saffron. Lively and energetic in the mouth, with seashell minerality, there’s acidity and rich, but gentle ripe nectarine flavours. It’s a delightful wine with a focused finish featuring lemon and grapefruit. It’s lengthy, too. Food match \ Fish and chips

BRIEFS FLU SEASON STARTS EARLY Health experts are warning of an early flu season, with a high number of cases already recorded this year. Health Department figures show there were 11 cases reported in Melton before March 25. One case had been reported in Moorabool. In 2013, there was 65 cases in Melton and 11 in Moorabool. Federal Health Minister Peter Dutton said having a flu shot was the single best way to stop flu in its tracks. The last severe influenza season was in 2009. \

Despite the brawl being captured on video and uploaded to social media, no one who witnessed the incident has been willing to talk to police. Police also spoke to the men involved in the altercation, but they did not provide statements. Footage posted on Facebook shows two men near the train doors exchanging abuse before one of the men throws the first punch. The fight caused a 30-minute delay on the Sunbury line while the driver waited for police to arrive. Information to Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000. \

EXPLOSIVE DEVICE FOUND IN CAR A Caroline Springs man has been charged after being caught driving a stolen vehicle with an explosive device on board. The man, aged in his 30s, was stopped in Caroline Springs Boulevard about midday on March 23. He was also interviewed about a series of thefts in the area and was charged with theft from, and of, a motor vehicle. He will appear in Sunshine Magistrates Court in August. \

MOTORBIKE STOLEN A blue and white Yamaha YZ125 motorbike was stolen from a garage in Narracan Close, Caroline Springs, on March 21. Three burglaries at properties under construction occurred the same day in Brookfield and Taylors Hill, with vanities, tapware, doors and a kitchen bench stolen. \

TRAIN FIGHT WITNESSES SOUGHT Police are urging witnesses to come forward after a punch-up between two men caused major delays on the Sunbury train line. The fight occurred on a train as it pulled into Ginifer station about 2.10pm on March 24.

COPPER TAKEN FROM SUBSTATIONS Electricity distributor Powercor has reported thefts of copper from six Caroline Springs substations between March 17 and 21. Copper was taken from sites in Orbis Drive, Heathcote Return, The Ridge Link, Otago Loop and Baretta Road. Information to Melton police: 9747 7999. \

Tech Talk \ Rod Easdown finds a speaker system that’s music to the ears What \ Bose SoundTouch 30

price \ $899

Tech talk verdict \ Happy wife, happy life

G

etting to try out the latest tech gadgets at home may sound good but it’s often disappointing. While these things usually do as promised, I’m seldom unhappy to send them back because I’ve discovered their annoying quirks and shortcomings. Occasionally I get a product I want to buy. The last was an umbrella that stands up to high winds. Before that, in 2004, it was some noise-cancelling headphones. Even so, I’d been looking forward to getting a Bose SoundTouch 30. I’d used it at its launch and in the shops, but home is the acid test. And at home something quite unprecedented happened. My non-technical, only just iPhone-literate wife played with it for 30 minutes and told me we have to get one. She’s even figured out where it will go. I’m not arguing. SoundTouch is neat. It’s a high-quality speaker system that hooks into your home wireless network and streams music from your phone, your tablet and your computer. Nothing new there. But it also has software built in to get internet radio and Pandora, and Bose says other music libraries are on the way. We’re big fans of Pandora, a predictive music library that takes your musical preferences and serves up the stuff you like, along with stuff it figures you’ll like. It guesses correctly most of the time, so you have a continuous stream of new and interesting music. What makes Pandora-through-SoundTouch so

compelling is convenience. There are six preset buttons on top and all you do is press one. This starts it, hooks it into whatever the preset is tuned for (one of your Pandora stations, an internet radio, the music on your phone) and starts playing. It’s so simple, fast and convenient, and it sounds so good that you tend to use it all the time, so the house is always full of music. When you’ve finished coffee and can’t put off housework any longer, changing from background music to Johnny Cash takes one button press. It goes so loud, without distortion, you can hear Mr Cash over the vacuum cleaner, important when he is integral to housework (I’ve found Elvis Costello also works well, as do the Doobie Brothers and Gypsy & the Cat). Quirks and shortcomings: the set-up, although easy, can take 30 minutes; start-up station loading often seemed to jam, which may be a firewall issue (flipping between presets got it going). Track information, shown at the start of the track only, is fleeting. The sound quality, while bass-oriented, is excellent. Add extra SoundTouch units and you get music wherever they are placed, too, with the same or different programs. The only problem I face now is the $899 involved, although there are a couple of cheaper offerings – a portable and the smaller SoundTouch 20 are both $549. \ reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au

A couple who have taken advantage of the service Choice Fresh Meals offers are Jack and Mavis Kennedy. Both 86, the couple decided to try Choice Fresh Meals after Mavis had heard good reports from friends. “I belong to seniors and we began talking about meals one day and someone said they were using the company and we decided to give it a try”, Mavis said. “The main reason we did it was that if anything happens to me, Jack would struggle to carry on with preparing food. And the same goes for me if something happened to Jack. It’s a nice break from cooking every night and they have a large choice of meals…everyone has something they don’t like, so it is nice to have a good range to choose from.” “We have tried a few different services, but we are very happy with Choice Fresh Meals,” Mavis said. “It’s conveniently delivered to us by Choice Fresh Meals who also now deliver fresh bread and milk and I look forward to not having to cook for the three nights… it’s a nice break. 10006735-01-a11Mar©MMP

Behind a neat garden with lawn, weeping rose and weeping cherry trees and a carpet rose-lined side drive that leads to the steel garage and carport, the much-loved house is proof that good things come in small packages. A slate-tiled entry opens into the foyer, which passes the combined living and dining rooms, three double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, laundry, (painted) timber-lined bathroom with shower, bath, vanity and second toilet, and a linen press/broom cupboard. The lounge room, accessed via bifold doors at the entry, has polished floorboards, gas heater and a ceiling fan. It is next to the

new coach, recruits for runners-up ROCKBANK

rdfl

Seventeen – that was the number of points that separated six teams in three Riddell District Football League grand finals last year. Riddell won the under-18.5 flag by a point. Diggers Rest won the reserves decider by nine points, and Riddell claimed the day’s biggest honours, by seven points, in the seniors. Season 2014 promises more of the same great football. Can Riddell do what so few teams have done and go back-to-back? Will a change of coach lead Diggers Rest to a long-sought title? Can Sunbury and Romsey return to the grand final stage? Can the likes of Macedon, Rupertswood and Melton Centrals close the gap? And can the other teams make a push for finals? Here’s how the competition’s Melton/ Moorabool teams are shaping up after a long preseason.

MELTON CENTRALS

Coach: Brian Wheelahan 2013: seventh, 8-8 The Centrals started with a lot of promise last year, winning their first four matches but only four of the remaining 12, eventually falling behind newcomers Rupertswood and missing the finals. A big bag of recruits will cover losses including Josh Armstrong and Mark Gillman. Greater consistency will be the key to succes this season.

VSDCA Grand finals, day 2 EAST WEST 1st XI: Noble Park 7-152 (Vorster 51no) bt Oakleigh 117 (Mawzoon 5-30). 2nd XI: Oakleigh 8-252 (Splatt 64 Norton 53 Veitch 6-58) bt Werribee 223 (Frenkel 82). NORTH WEST 3rd XI: Preston 5-97 bt Ivanhoe 96. 4th XI: Williamstown 9-169 bt Preston 121.

Coach: Rob Lynch 2013: 10th, 6-10 The Rams have been rocked by the departure of coach Leigh Sporle in the off-season. Add to that losing ruckman Chris Jones, Matt Krul and Anthony Long and it’s not been the ideal preseason for a team that showed greater competitiveness in 2013. Still, several recruits have come over from the Ballarat league and there was plenty of impressive young talent last year to suggest the Rams will fight for the lower reaches of the top six.

DIGGERS REST

Coach: Shaun Sims 2013: second, 14-2 Seven points were all that stood between the Burras and a long-awaited premiership. The club has parted ways with coach Jamie Elliott and will be led by Diggers stalwart Shaun Sims. The Burras have lost defender Brett Caton, and a number of others. But recruits headed by Matthew Krul from Rockbank and Hume Football League spearhead James Breen will ensure the Burras will be in the thick of it again. \ DANIEL PAPROTH dpaproth@mmpgroup.com.au

A winning formula just add water Grant Harrison has never lost the bug for hydroplane racing. Even when he suffered a broken neck and was in a coma for days after a test session went awry (some damaged equipment sent Harrison and his boat skyward before flipping and crashing) the GP1 racer couldn’t give it up.

“Our win meant that for the first time in GP history, one race team held the international, Australasian, national and state titles in the same season,” says Harrison. “But really, it started several years back for us, with designing, building and the refining the right boat.

“My dad didn’t want me to race anymore,” Harrison said. “At the time of the crash in 2004, we had already won one world championship. I know I was lucky to be alive. People thought that was the end of racing for me. We didn’t race for maybe a year.”

“We’ve spent countless hours analysing past performances and looking for the one-percenters. Of course, our extremely dedicated team has been right there from the start. For me, to do it the second time proves it wasn’t a fluke.”

Best described as Formula One motor racing on water, hydroplane racing proves a rush for thrill seekers and extreme sport enthusiasts. Boats are lifted by crane onto a waterway race track where the driver can reach speeds of up to 280 km/h. Drivers are acutely aware of the dangers, but this didn’t stop Harrison and his team –which also includes his father and team owner Keith – from claiming victory in 2012, winning the UIM World GP Hydroplane Championship in New Zealand for the second time.

M44

MotorOne

They say third time’s the charm, and Harrison and his team keep on training, racing and adding more titles to the trophy cabinet. “Power boat racing is in my blood. I’ve been part of the sport for as long as I can remember - first with Dad as a racer and now me. The only thing that scares me about it is the thought of not being part of it.”
