It’s all about accessories

Approach hits the right note omen, popularly considered as beings from Venus, usually like a friendly, approachable manner when it comes to buying items for their homes. And owner of Forty Winks Sunbury, Siobhan McGrory, finds she and her team hit all the right notes, especially with female customers. “We’re not at all pushy but instead friendly and helpful. My team and I enjoy chatting to clients to find out their needs and provide them with the most suitable products.” Siobhan has been in retail for the past 30 years, stepping into that world after a period of study in the scientific research field. “I found I preferred interacting with people more than the often solitary research endeavours.”

All classes are conducted by women.

There are no other fitness centres in Sunbury that offer this service, Narelle says.

‘‘About a year ago my mum, sister and I were sick of getting in the car and travelling out of Sunbury to get last-minute accessories for our outfits,’’ says co-owner Antoinette Manariti. ‘‘We always said how amazing it would be if something opened nearby. We pondered on that for a while, then slowly, with hard work and dedication, our dream came true.’’

“Quality customer service with approachable staff is important to us, attributes that can be hard to find these days.” They provide a delivery and installation service - free to clients with a senior’s card - and offer interest-free terms to approved applicants.

More trains, less time to wait BY TARA MURRAY METRO trains will run at least every 14 minutes during weekday peak hours on the Sunbury line from November 18. Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder yesterday announced the new timetables that have been introduced to coincide with the completion of the Sunbury line electrification. He said morning weekday peak-hour trains would run every 12 minutes and every 12 to 14 minutes in the evening weekday peak period. “Currently, Diggers Rest and Sunbury passengers wait an average of 25 minutes for a V/Line train in the morning peak, with inconsistent gaps between trains,” Mr Mulder said. ‘‘Sunbury and Diggers Rest passengers will benefit from two additional trips in the morning peak. ‘‘Sunbury will receive an additional four trips in the evening peak. “Diggers Rest will have five additional

trains in the evening peak period — almost double the number of trips compared with current V/Line frequencies.’’ On weekends and in off-peak periods, trains will run every 40 minutes. “There will be almost double the number of trains running on weekends, making public transport a great option for getting to and from weekend activities in the city,” Mr Mulder said. V/Line and bus timetables will also change on November 18. A Public Transport Victoria spokeswoman said V/Line trains would continue to stop at Sunbury station, but not at Diggers Rest. ‘‘Metro trains will replace all services that previously commenced and terminated at Sunbury. ‘‘Apart from these services, the number of trips on the Bendigo line will not change and all services that previously stopped at Sunbury will continue to do so.

‘‘Sunbury passengers will not be prevented from catching a V/Line service, but it is expected that for the vast majority of people the more frequent Metro service, which provides direct access to the City Loop and Flinders Street station, will be a better way to travel.’’ She said that there would be some limited Metro express services. ‘‘The timetable will provide a consistent pattern of services and standardised stopping patterns at the height of the peak periods. ‘‘Sunbury peak services will run express from Sunshine to Footscray and Sydenham/ Watergardens services will stop all stations (except South Kensington).’’ Seven Sunbury bus services, including the bus service from Sunbury to Moonee Ponds, will have changed timetables. The PTV spokeswoman said there would not be any new bus services, just altered timetables co-ordinated to connect better with trains.

Just kidding Sunbury College assistant principal Geoff Dillon (pictured with Maddison, 13, Chelsea, 14, and Erica, 13) found himself in an unusual position last Friday, being locked up to raise money for the Kids Helpline. The helpline provides free counselling service to people aged between 5 and 25. Student wellbeing teacher Rebecca Bartlett said it was the second year the school supported the helpline by taking part in the Lock Up Your Principal program. ‘‘It was the idea of the student wellbeing group and part of the activities we’ve done for Mental Health Week. Students have to donate money to the cause and once enough money is raised for the ‘bail’ the principal is let out.’’ She said the school raised $1500 last year and was still counting the money raised on Friday.

COUNCIL ELECTION 2012

JACKSONS CREEK WARD

Whittle down a crowded field

Name: Ann Potter Age:47 Occupation: Administration officer/carer Political party/affiliation: ALP A current councillor for the ward, I still feel I have a lot to offer our community. As a mother and carer, I experience the day-to-day hardships that our community faces, from childcare to aged services. I am a normal community member who commutes to the city each day for work. Growth and infrastructure are the major issues.

Name: Trevor Dance Age:52 Occupation: Company director and operations manager Political party/affiliation: Independent I want to maintain and develop the many good features of Sunbury (city living-country style) with improved facilities, a financially transparent and accountable council, with independent representation for Sunbury/ Tullamarine/Bulla residents. I have a business/financial background.

Name: Jan Ward Age: 53 Occupation: Owner manager of Jan’s Engraving Political party/affiliation: Independent, but Liberal Party member I would bring a business sense, good work ethic, negotiation skills and the ability to work well with fellow councillors. I will tackle issues such as the inadequate parking at the station and shopping centres, and the poor condition of local and main roads.

Name: Ross Buchanan Age: 41 Occupation: Hospital management Political party/affiliation: Independent I want to help families in Sunbury and the rest of Hume. My community involvement focuses on health and education. The issues I will focus on include access from Jacksons Hill to Vineyard Road and keeping the former Victoria University site in public hands. I don’t think Sunbury can leave Hume without having a negative impact on rates and services.

Name: Adrian Lodders Age: 26 Occupation: Technical consultant (information technology) Political party/affiliation: Independent, but a Liberal Party member I hope to bring fresh ideas to the table and I believe that someone of my age can better reflect the views of youth and young families who live in the area. Road congestion and lack of parking in Sunbury and the resealing of roads in Bulla are some of the top issues.

Name: Stephen Coughlan Age: 37 Occupation: Train driver Political party/affiliation: Independent I can see a number of areas where the council has missed the boat. Public transport advocacy is one. With 150 000 residents in one of the fastest-growing areas in Australia, we do not have a community-driven transport forum. A fix for decaying roads and the urgent need for a third rail crossing in Sunbury are other issues.

Name: Jack Medcraft Age:60 Occupation: Real estate Political party/affiliation: Independent I feel Hume has been dominated by party politics for far too long and the ratepayers’ needs have been neglected. Among the main issues in Sunbury are the third rail crossing, installation of CCTV cameras promised at the last state election, better transport, and a police training centre or trade university at the old Victoria University site.

Name: Bart Simes Age: 35 Occupation: Renewable Energy Sales Leader (Australia) Political party/affiliation: Liberal The ward represents a collection of small country townships that are at risk of becoming outer Melbourne suburban sprawl. We are too dependent on other wards and cities for employment opportunities. Most of us spend a large proportion of our time and net income simply getting to and from work.

Name: Carmel Barrot Age: 58 Occupation: MS officer Political party/affiliation: Labor At a time when families are finding it hard to make ends meet, we need to keep rates low. We need to provide multi-level parking at the Sunbury railway station, address traffic congestion and not allow the Coalition government to sell off the former Victoria University site to developers.

Brakes on bike path BY TARA MURRAY SALESIAN College and Hume Council are yet to come to an agreement over the construction of the ‘missing link’ of the Sunbury bike path. The council received $300,000 funding from the state government to construct a bike path from the railway line on Blind Creek through Salesian’s land to the town centre and across to ‘The Nook’. The council says on its website that the start date is planned for 2012-2013. It’s the third and final stage of completing the bike paths around Sunbury. Both parties said last week they were still in discussions about the path. ‘‘The Salesian Society, the property owner, is supportive of the development of a bike path,’’ Salesian College principal Mark Brockhus said. ‘‘The school is working closely with the council to finalise an outcome that suits all parties

involved. ‘‘The path will be a valuable link for both students and the wider community.’’ Council chief executive Domenic Isola said the council was still looking to start the path in 2012-2013. “We’ll continue to work closely with Salesian College over the coming months to finalise an agreed outcome, with works still expected to start in 2012-2013.” Sunbury resident and regular bike user Hector Bugeja said the community had been waiting for a long time for a date to be set. ‘‘We are waiting on the college’s decision on whether they will allow the construction of this section of the pathway network on college land. ‘‘The good news is that it’s still going to proceed, but it’s been 12 months they have been discussing this and they still don’t have a start date. ‘‘The bike paths are a real asset to Sunbury and it’s a shame it’s taking so long for this part to start.’’

EMERGENCY services personnel from across Hume got together last Monday to discuss preparations for the fire season. The meeting in Craigieburn was attended by members of the CFA, MFB, SES police, ambulance and Parks Victoria. Local radio station representatives were also invited to discuss their roles in emergencies. CFA Hume group officer Gerry Hauke said the meeting was about getting all emergency services together in the one spot. ‘‘At the meeting we gave an overview of what was expected for the season. We are predicting a pretty average type of season. ‘‘We went through multi-agency scenarios to get a better understanding of how they [each agency] work to get people working together.’’ Mr Hauke said the united approach would benefit the community. ‘‘It’s an idea to see what they experience and the way each group does things, so we can work better together. ‘‘This allows us to work out any common problems and make sure we know who will be in charge in particular situations.’’ He said firefighters in Hume had to ensure they were prepared for fires quicker than some other areas due to the region’s rural-urban interface. ‘‘Usually bushfires and grassfires are fastrunning and can do a lot of damage. ‘‘You need to be a little quicker in responding in areas like Sunbury and Craigieburn, which are still surrounded by rural growth. ‘‘The biggest problem is needle grass — a big fire hazard.’’ Mr Hauke said the CFA wanted people to start preparing for the warmer weather. ‘‘People need to start cleaning up around their houses. It’s time to do some mowing, burning and it’s the opportune time to move potential fire hazards away from houses.’’ Local CFA stations will hold briefings for residents on fire safety in the coming months.

INBRIEF Driver hurt in smash Police are looking for witnesses to a crash between a truck and car in Wildwood last Monday. Brunswick major collision investigation unit’s Detective Senior Constable Ross Hancock said the two vehicles were believed to have collided head-on. The crash took place about 8.20am on Konagaderra Road and police, ambulance, the CFA and SES attended the scene. The car driver, a 48-year-old man, was trapped and taken to hospital with serious injuries. Senior Detective Hancock said police had spoken to the truck driver.

WorkCover fraud A Sunbury man has had to repay more than $55,000 after being found guilty of claiming false WorkCover payments. Reinhart Schmid pleaded guilty in the Broadmeadows Magistrates Court earlier this month to fraudulently obtaining payments and providing false information. The court heard Mr Schmid injured his back while getting into his car in September 2008, when he was working as a sales representative. He continued to work on modified duties and stopped working almost a year later, claiming his injury had worsened. He received weekly compensation for his injury, but surveillance carried out in August 2010 found Mr Schmid was working at a Coburg North car sales business.

Rain a pain, but no showstopper BY TARA MURRAY SUNBURY residents braved the wet weather as they turned out in big numbers at the 92nd Sunbury show on Saturday. Show president Gary Beaton said it was lucky the rain held off until 2pm. ‘‘With such a wet lead-up to the show there was perhaps a touch of gloom in a few of us on the committee, because who wants to go out when it’s wet and cold. ‘‘Fortunately the Sunbury weather gods smiled upon us until about 2pm and then it poured for about an hour. ‘‘I thought [the rain] may have affected the attendance, but we had around the same number of people as last year.’’ Mr Beaton said the pet parade and animal sections were among the highlights. The parade had a record 99 entries. ‘‘It’s a true community participation event because it’s people bringing along their home pet and entering it in any amount of novelty classes. ‘‘Over the years we have seen cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, cockies, right through to a young girl’s pet backyard chook. ‘‘Also not to be outdone was the poultry, rabbit and cavy section, with close to 200 birds and

Not shaping up well for Hume’s workers BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN HUME workers are drinking excessive amounts of alcohol and a vast majority are not eating enough fruit and vegetables, says WorkSafe Victoria. The figures, released last week, come from free WorkHealth checks that were done in Hume between April 2009 and April this year. Only 28.2 per cent of about 65,000 Hume workers had a WorkHealth check in this period. The check-up is a free 15-minute assessment for risk of diseases and conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Figures show that, overall, 93 per cent of workers did not have enough vegetables — that compared with the state figure of 89 per cent. Half of workers ate less than the state government-recommended daily amount of fruit and nine in 10 reported eating less than the daily recommended amount of vegetables. The daily recommended intake is two serves of fruit and five serves of vegetables. Seventy-two per cent of workers reported they were physically inactive — higher than the state average of 69 per cent. Thirty-eight per cent reported drinking

alcohol at ‘risky’ levels (the state average is 39 per cent). Dianella Community Health clinical director Ralph Audehm said the finding was only a small snapshot of the entire Hume community, given that it was about the health of workers and there was a 4.2 per cent unemployment rate in the north-western Melbourne area in August. ‘‘It’s not reflective of Hume itself. ‘‘This is looking at the health of people who partake in a workforce. ‘‘We’re looking at a select group of the population, so it’s hard to make good comment about it.’’ Dr Audehm encouraged more people to have a WorkHealth check because it was a free service and could be beneficial. ‘‘At the moment, only 28 per cent of the workforce has had a WorkHealth check. ‘‘I think the more we know about our health the better.’’ ‘‘We need to get people to become more interested in these checks. ‘‘People aren’t eating healthy.’’ Ninety-three per cent of people were not eating [the recommended amount of] vegetables, Dr Audehm said. ‘‘That still shocks me.’’

ith eyes flint sharp he cut straight to the chase, leaving hope in tattered ribbons on the floor. How many people out of 10 would cheat or bend the rules given the opportunity? “Nine,” Ken Fagan declared with a certitude that killed any prospect of cross-examination and a passing butterfly stone-dead. With 25 years’ experience as a Victoria Police officer and 15 years running his own private investigations company, Fagan’s view is supported by the evidence. From the stereotypical cheating spouse or cyber love-rat to the corporate fraudster it seems we have good grounds to be suspicious with the digital age providing unparalleled opportunities. Throw in the economic downturn and you have motive, which has led to a huge increase in fraud from the small-scale overtime rorts of the factory floor, inflated or false insurance claims and welfare rip-offs, to multi-million-dollar corporate heists. And, in turn, to more private investigators to detect them. In the 1996 census there were 904 people Australia-wide who gave their occupation as private investigator. In 2011-2012 there were 1330 people in Victoria alone specifically licensed as private investigators. Many, like Fagan, are

ex-police. The director of the Australian Security Management Group, which trains upwards of 40 PIs a year, estimates about 60 per cent come from a law enforcement background. “There are no Weetie packet detectives leaving our establishment,” Fagan says. Most will run a mile from the cheating hearts cases and specialise in particular aspects of investigation like risk management, insurance fraud, background checks and skip tracing. “The family-related matters – the suspicious spouse – still make up the bulk of inquiries, but the conversion rate is very low and we tend to steer clear of them” Fagan says. “The majority of stuff we do is for business.” Work-based investigation and surveillance forms the bulk of Alan Earl’s work through his firm Two One Investigations. It’s very different from what the former mechanical design engineer imagined when he first moved into the investigations field. “I admit I had the romantic idea of spying and surveillance, hiding in the bushes with my army background, at that stage not realising there was this whole other world of circumstantial investigation,” he says. He has done the odd investigation which has called for the camouflage gear, but more often he’s in a high visibility vest talking to people directly after being called in by HR to investigate allegations of bullying, harassment or discrimination that might form the basis of stress claims. Since 2006-07 there has been a 54 per cent increase in the number of mental stress claims. The average claim for psychological injury is

$29,000 and the average time off is 20 weeks, with overwork and stress now estimated to cost Australia $30 billion a year – half the total workplace injury bill. “Stress claims now are today’s equivalent of repetitive strain injuries of the 1980s,” Earl says. “We are in a climate now when so many people are questioning whether they are going to have a job next week and we are all working 24 hours a day seven days a week with technology. People are stressed. “But stress claims are highly investigated now because they are not tangential. It is not like you chopped your arm off. We need to find out what the facts are. “Since Brodie’s Law (an amendment to the Crimes Act introduced after waitress Brodie Panlock killed herself because of workplace bullying) this sort of investigation has become more and more important. “Companies can’t afford not to take it seriously,” he adds. In tough times more people are tempted to try soft options for increasing their income, translating to what Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) Global Economic Crime Survey identified as “an epidemic of fraud permeating Australian organisations.” Nobody knows this better than Tim Carrodus, a former Victoria Police detective inspector who has worked as a senior investigator for the United Nations and World Bank Group. “I think fraud will only increase,” the principal of Bottomline Investigation and Advisory Services (BIAAS) says. “All the research indicates a major-

ity of fraud goes unreported. It’s typical with the nature of fraud. Fraud is a hidwen crime and it’s often discovered too late to recover from it. Early intervention is the most important thing.” Without professional help it can be hard for the victim to even make a case to police or lawyers. As Carrodus puts it: “If you walk home at night and someone comes behind you and punches you in the head and steals your handbag it is pretty obvious a crime has happened. You have got a bruised face, you may have other injuries, your handbag’s missing and there might be witnesses to it. “So it is very, very easy for the police to establish that you are the victim of a crime. “With fraud we have to do the same thing, but it is more arduous to prove that, because most fraud is hidden – that is the whole nature of it. “You have no bruises. What you have is a business in turmoil and no money in the bank, but we have to establish what has happened. “I have two cases now where there has been a lot of trust involved between the business partners over many many years and in each case one of them has ripped off the other. “The people who come and see me are bewildered by it. They are severely traumatised by the experience because they had so much trust in this other person. “I have seen a lot of that happen over the years. “It’s tragic. Good companies and good businesses that had a lot of potential have failed because of it.”

For road safety, it’s all about respect A former policeman trucked into Sunbury on Saturday with a message for road users. It’s all about respecting one another on the road and truck and car drivers need to more aware of that, Glen Schmidtke said. Mr Schmidtke was visiting as part of the state government’s Road to Respect campaign. Interactive displays in the travelling truck

are used to spread the campaign message. ‘‘In the truck we have things that show you how far braking distance is, the blind spots and some things that are out of control of drivers. Mr Schmidtke said VicRoads figures showed about 70 per cent of accidents involving trucks were caused by people driving cars.

‘‘People don’t realise many things about sharing the road with trucks. ‘‘I have been getting a positive response especially from the 16-17-year-olds who are really interested. ‘‘It’s [the campaign message] something that should be included when they get their licence.

SUNBURY residents Daniel and Corina Payne (pictured with twin daughters Holly and Abby) started taking part in the Buddy Walk three years ago when Holly was born with Down syndrome. Buddy Walk, held in Melbourne last Sunday, is a walk-a-thon-style event to raise funds for Down Syndrome Victoria. ‘‘As I became more familiar with the services that DSV offered, I wanted to get involved and give something back,’’ Mr Payne said. ‘‘I instigated sponsorship (from his employer NAB) and started a local sponsorship funding team. ‘‘This year we have 35 people and have raised over $4000. NAB and Holly and Abby’s childcare centre Forever Friends have also got involved in helping to raise money.’’

One big stride in diabetes battle SUNBURY’S Jason Whiter knows all too well the consequences of living with type 1 diabetes. Despite the setbacks and physical challenges he has faced, this Sunday he will take on the five-kilometre Walk to Cure Diabetes charity event and is seeking sponsorship. Now 35, Mr Whiter has lived with diabetes since he was 11. In that time the disease has drastically affected his vision and mobility. In 2009, it nearly took his life when his kidneys gave up. He held on for a life-saving transplant the following year. The terrible condition affects every move he makes. Despite it all, Mr Whiter, with the support of his loving wife Janene, is busier than ever. The Moonee Ponds-based real estate agent still finds himself working most days and is in the process of moving from Sunbury back to his

home town of Moonee Ponds. When he takes on the Walk to Cure Diabetes on Sunday, just finishing will be a huge effort. ‘‘I don’t know if there is a point I’m trying to make with this, but I don’t want diabetes to get me down — I see this as a way of not letting it get me down,’’ he says. ‘‘If there was a point I want to make, though, it’s that people don’t really realise the long-term consequences of diabetes. ‘‘I know I didn’t. When I was younger I thought, Yeah, I’ve got it, I’ll take care of it later. ‘‘There needs to be more awareness for people that if you don’t take care of it you could get kidney problems, or an amputation — we need to get that message out there.’’ To sponsor Jason, visit walk.jdrf.org.au.

Liability of a Landlord for Injury Many landlords may be unaware of the fact that if someone is injured while on your property, you may be liable for the costs even though the property was tenanted at the time. One recent example was where a tenant held a party. One of the guests became intoxicated and fell through a balcony railing. The owner and the agent were sued for damages for not maintaining the property properly. The settlement was extremely high. This is particularly important for your peace of mind as a landlord. A typical example of an amount to insure for would be $20,000,000. The policy is not expensive, but the alternative certainly would be. This point should be emphasised, for a little while there appeared an ominous article in the Herald Sun revealing that an inspector in a city high-rise apartment had falsified the installation of a sprinkler system. While the City has instigated legal action to get rectification of the situation, it is also leading to an audit of other buildings. Imagine the

The adjoining family room has floating floorboards, floral roman blinds and a wood heater. A hallway heads from here to three bedrooms with wardrobes, a bright main bathroom and separate toilet. The laundry with storage is off the kitchen.

The family room opens to the pergola, partially clad in Laserlite and with large pavers beneath. The large backyard of grass, edged with gardens, is introduced by an arbour with the same woodwork detail as the pergola. Silver birches, other ornamental trees and roses beautify the area. A side gate opening from Sexton Street to the backyard is an extra perk, allowing easy access for boat or caravan parking. The property has a double garage with remotecontrol and is a hop, step and jump from the main street, school, shop and station.

Hands make a welcome sign FIONA O’Sullivan says she has started sign language conversation classes in Sunbury to make life easier for people who are deaf like she is. ‘‘I’ve only just come up with the idea, so I started teaching people sign language in a relaxed environment,’’ Ms O’Sullivan (pictured) says. ‘‘It’s a good skill to have and it makes things easier when trying to order a coffee and things like that. ‘‘This morning someone at the bank signed ‘thank you’ and that sort of gesture makes my day.’’ Ms O’Sullivan, who was born deaf, has been doing sign language for more than 20 years. ‘‘I’m a qualified sign language teacher and have been teaching for 10 years, but I took some time off when I had my kids. ‘‘I’m looking at using these classes as a trial to see how it goes. ‘‘If I have success, I’ll look at running Auslan (Australian Sign Language) classes in Sunbury. ‘‘There’s nothing like this in Sunbury.’’ She says her classes so far have attracted a few people. Anyone is welcome to attend the conversation classes at the Just Planet store on Saturday from 10.30am.

Employers urged to look deeper BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN and TARA MURRAY

Classes cost $10 each. Details: text 0430 530 366 — Tara Murray

AN employment agency in Sunbury is urging businesses to ‘‘see the person, not the mental illness’’. To coincide with Mental Health Week last week, WISE Employment has launched a campaign called Empowermental. Its aim is to break down the stigma and encourage businesses to employ someone with a mental illness. A WISE survey showed that only one in three businesses would consider employing someone who has a mental illness. The survey involved 253 small businesses. WISE operates in Victoria, NSW, Tasmania and the Northern Territory. WISE Sunbury business manager Nick Papaioannou said a high number of jobseekers in Sunbury and Broadmeadows had some form of mental illness, including depression, anxiety and schizophrenia. ‘‘It is difficult trying to break down the mental

stigma. In Sunbury and Broadmeadows, we encourage businesses to employ people with a mental disability. ‘‘They can be the best person for the job and we provide ongoing support to both the employer and employee. ‘‘There’s a stigma about mental illness within the community and in general, only because people aren’t very well educated about different illnesses and what people go through.’’ He said the agency encouraged job seekers to reveal their mental illness, but many were too scared to do so. The campaign, which will run throughout this month, also aims to let employers know that there is federal government support available if they hire someone who has a mental illness. Sunbury’s Western Region Health Centre’s acting team leader Deb North said she wasn’t surprised by the survey results. ‘‘It is difficult for people with a mental illness to get jobs and there is that stigma. ‘‘Many people with mental disabilities aren’t aware of their entitlements as well.’’

"genuine employment?''

ADVERTISERS PLEASENOTE Much hardship and difficulty is caused to job-seekers by misleading advertising placed in employment columns. Our Professional Employment and Situations Vacant columns are reserved for advertisements which carry a SPECIFIC and GENUINE offer of employment. All employment advertisements must state clearly the type of job offered and remuneration offered. (i.e. salary package, retainer plus commission or commission only). "Commission only'' jobs are only accepted in these columns PROVIDED that this is clearly stated in the ad AND the employer is paying Workcover and Superannuation. If not, then these advertisements MUST be placed in an alternate classification such as Self Employment Opportunities.

Helping others to help themselves Occupational therapist Josephine Snowden finds a spiritual richness in her work was fortunate to have occupational therapy pointed out to me by my brother who was studying medicine at the time,’’ Josephine says. ‘‘My main interest in it was to help others. My personality and creative nature meant the career suited me.’’ Josephine started with an occupational therapy degree and later completed a masters research degree. She has volunteered for The Australian Association of Occupational Therapists, taught at Deakin University and supervised La Trobe University students on placement. In her work, Josephine helps children with special needs, and their families, using different therapeutic strategies and sensory-based therapy. ‘‘Our goals are to develop the child’s potential for participating in life

through use of fine and gross motor skills, postural abilities, cognition, attention and emotion.’’ She sees children age two to adolescents, working on individual programs and group therapy sessions. ‘‘My other interest is in the spirituality of children with special needs and how this impacts their development and requirements in therapy. ‘‘The small group therapy sessions promote social interaction and understanding and target other skills in a fun, playful atmosphere.’’ Josephine has a practice consulting with individual children and their families through therapy, assessments and building special relationships. ‘‘I travel to the child’s school or kinder to assist others involved in their care and development.’’

She says there are many benefits to her career.. ‘‘The rich personal relationships you develop with clients is of great importance. ‘‘Being able to teach and encourage others as head of an occupational therapy department, and work as a mentor, have been enjoyable.’’ Josephine is now undertaking a PhD in spirituality and occupational therapy and plans to write and present papers in this challenging area. ‘‘It’s important to understand that occupational therapists don’t work only with children, and that it’s a complex area of work that needs dedication and lots of experience. Outside of helping others, Josephine enjoys spending time with family and friends, attending church, gardening and exercising.

Focus on Ford bargains Euro style and excellent value, writes Ewan Kennedy

12 MONTH WARRANTY

ord Australia has reduced the manufacturer’s list price of its Focus models. These cars are operating in one of the toughest of all market segments and buyers are being wooed from all directions. The company has revised the specifications of the entry level model, the Focus Ambiente sedan, by introducing the choice of a manual gearbox. The manual option was previously offered only on the hatchback. Ambiente is now on sale with a recommended drive-away price of just $19,990, an excellent price for a fully imported Euro styled car that sits a fair way up in the image stakes. Ford Australia is also offering drive-away pricing at $27,490 on the Focus Sport, and Focus Trend manual for $22,890. To further increase value, the Ford Sync system is now standard across the entire Focus range. Sync synchronises hands-free, voice-activated in-car connectivity. This consists of USB and Bluetooth connectivity including music streaming, and access to contacts stored in a connected phone. It also

Performance is good without being exactly exciting and our tests show it can get fuel consumption in the six to seven litres per hundred kilometres range on the open road.

Coaches pull pin THE Bendigo Football League’s Macedon Ranges connections have been rocked by coaches resigning at both Gisborne and Kyneton in the last week. Gisborne coach Luke Saunders has stepped down due to health reasons, while Kyneton co-coaches Derrick Filo and Nathan Thompson have also exited. Saunders, 32, has been diagnosed with sudden sensory neural hearing loss, an ear-related virus that affects balance. Saunders’ deputy, 2010 Lancefield premiership coach Kevin Fitzgerald, is expected to be among the applicants to take on leading the Bendigo league runner-up. Filo stood down at Kyneton citing family commitments and a belief that the club would be better off with a coach who could devote more time to the role. Thompson has also stepped down as co-coach but is continuing at Kyneton as a player. — with Adam Bourke, Bendigo Advertiser

Atkins top Cannon RORY Atkins capped a consistent TAC Cup season by winning the Robert Hyde medal as the Calder Cannons’ best and fairest on Friday night. Atkins, 18, won the medal from Rupertswood’s Sean Hetherington with Aberfeldie’s Darcy Bailey third. The Maribyrnong Park product was among the best in nine of his 15 TAC Cup games this season. He was named best five times and booted 12 goals from midfield. Woodend’s Jake Owen won the coaches award and St Bernards’ Daniel Thompson was named most improved. Robert Ball, who played for Moonee Valley and Maribyrnong Park before entering the Cannons program, was awarded the academic achievement award for his year 12 results while in the Cannons system in 2011. The Doug McCasker award for most valuable club person went to elite athlete development coach Steve Forcone. — Teo Pellizzeri

Pair’s flailing fury costs Sunbury a first-up win BY TEO PELLIZZERI SUNBURY’S first full game back in McIntyre Cup was not one to remember as Sunbury United handed out an eight-wicket pasting on Saturday. Back in the top division of Gisborne District Cricket Association, Sunbury ground out 89 off its 41 overs batting first at Langama Park on Saturday. The score looked potentially like being enough when Sunbury United lost early wickets to be 2-6. But Leif Louwen-Skovdam (50) and Ryan Billinghurst (31) unleashed fury with the bats to reach 2-90 off just 11 overs. Stewart Robertson had earlier saved Sunbury from greater embarrassment when his 22 from No.11 took the score from 9-56 to 89 all-out. Louwen-Skovdam (4-12) and Lyndon Dowsett (3-19) were best of the United bowlers. Reigning premier Riddell was upstaged at home by Romsey as the Bombers fell 27 runs short. Romsey made 162 batting first with Cameron Armstrong (45) top scoring and Heath Wadden (3-16) best of the Riddell bowlers. But Riddell batsmen found it impossible to make a big score. Six reached double figures but only Michael Day (34) passed 30. Gary Williams (3-31) and Brent Tonkin (3-24) kept

consistent wickets coming for Romsey as Riddell was all out 135 off 36 overs. Woodend put too many on the board for Bacchus Marsh as it successfully defended 5-169 by bowling out the Bulls for 125 in reply. Rupertswood and Wallan will have to wait another week to put points on the board after their match at Rupertswood was abandoned 10 overs in, with Wallan 0-25 batting first. In B grade, Gisborne misfired with the bat in a ninewicket defeat to Macedon. Rolled for just 62 off 34 overs, Gisborne could not defend the total as Macedon patiently made 1-78 off 28 overs in reply. In C grade, Ashfield overcame a rocky start to beat Bacchus Marsh by 41 runs. Russell Phillips made 47 from No.8 as Ashfield posted 8-154 batting first before Andrew Farquhar’s 3-17 helped bowl out the Bulls for 113 in reply. At Romsey, visiting East Sunbury first XI thrashed the home team by 115 runs. Steve Grey (77) and Zach Ross (40) put on 80 for the first wicket as East Sunbury made 7-173 batting first. Four East Sunbury bowlers then took two wickets each as Romsey was skittled for 58 in reply. Diggers Rest Bulla Village posted 3-121 off its 40 overs but Sunbury United’s chase was abandoned 4.1 overs in with the score 0-4.
