$10m sensor ‘problem’ revealed EXCLUSIVE

THEFACTS

BY CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS

■ Sensys advised VicRoads in 2009 that its studs had a ‘‘potential moisture problem’’ and supplied 400 replacement studs.

Stop-start: Cars stop at the red light at the entry to the M1 at Hallam.

UNDERCONTROL SENSYS wireless sensors: how do they work? Magnetic sensors are housed in a drilled hole in the road, detecting passing vehicles. They can be installed within 20-30 minutes by closing one lane of traffic. They communicate wirelessly with a repeater or an access point, which transmits traffic speed, occupancy and volume data to VicRoads’ central traffic monitoring system in Kew.

Win for people power A PEOPLE power campaign against three-storey apartments in a predominantly onestorey residential street of Dandenong has won support from Greater Dandenong Council. Neighbours to the proposed 12-apartment building at 30 MacPherson Street have claimed it is incompatible to the precinct’s character. A number of historic homes are nearby. Council officers and councillors agreed, rejecting the proponent’s planning application on Monday last week. The site is in a residential 2 zone, and if the council had approved the proposal, neighbours would have had no rights of appeal. However, the developer may yet appeal against the council’s decision to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Cheryl McCoy, a neighbour, said she would like to think ‘‘people power’’ might send a message to prospective developers in the street. “It’s a bit like [the film] The Castle. Soon after we came here we learnt about the history and how it was such a nice street. If the development had gone through, we’d move. “I know there’s going to be development in Dandenong but keep it in other areas like around that estate in Cheltenham Road.’’

being rolled out. ‘‘The report . . . assumes that a single faulty batch will be repeated on an ongoing basis, which has not been the case, therefore it [the report] is flawed and incorrect.’’ Mr Gidley said an ‘‘innovative solution’’ had been required on the M1. If wire-based detector loops were used instead, it would have involved removing or cutting the existing loops each time the realigned lanes were moved. It would have closed parts and all of the freeway for extended time. Mr Gidley said that M1 project director for Intelligent Transport Systems, Phillip Walsh, recommended the use of the studs after the testing and trials — ‘‘it followed the normal VicRoads process’’. Mr Walsh, who last year joined supplier Sensys as Australasian director, would not comment on why the studs were chosen. He recently left Sensys to become Land Lease roads manager.

■ The report stated the sensors are powered by three AA batteries. Sensys claimed they had a shelflife of 10 years and were virtually ‘‘maintenance free’’. But an installer found an average battery life of four to five years.

G3949083AA-dp9May

AN internal VicRoads report has revealed a costly epidemic of flaws in its installation of wireless traffic sensors during the Monash Freeway upgrade. A VicRoads product evaluation report in August found a ‘‘serious problem’’ with the Sensys-brand sensors, of which 2376 were installed as part of a $100 million freeway management system. The report — sighted exlusively by the Journal — stated it could cost more than $10 million over 10 years to maintain and replace the faulty devices, which are placed at access ramps and at 500-metre intervals on each lane to monitor traffic flow and control traffic signals. VicRoads chief operating officer Bruce Gidley defended use of the sensors, saying the report was the view ‘‘of one individual, and does not represent VicRoads’ position.’’ But employees of companies that installed the studs have told the Journal faulty sensors are being replaced daily en masse. They said the wireless technology was not given ‘‘type product approval’’ by the roads authority prior to their installation. Three of the employees said this was unprecedented in their experience. “If the normal approval process had happened, this whole debacle wouldn’t have happened,’’ one said. However, Mr Gidley said new products were often used prior to typeapproval. He said the studs were chosen after being independently evaluated by Australian Road Research Board and La Trobe University, which found they were a viable alternative to wiredetector loops, and were trialled before

VICROADS surveyed the wireless sensors across various road projects in Victoria and Western Australia. Its subsequent report in August found: ■ On average 15 per cent of studs were not providing data and the failure rate was 30 per cent.

BY CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS CASEY deputy mayor Sam Aziz will seek to impose a planning condition ‘‘not to preach hatred from the pulpits’’ on a proposed Afghan mosque in Doveton. Cr Aziz has backed objections by Catch the Fire Ministries pastor Danny Nalliah, who is rallying opinion against the mosque in Green Street. The mosque, if approved by the council, would be built in an industrial zone next to Catch the Fire’s $2 million planned church. Cr Aziz has requested a motion at tomorrow’s council meeting to invite Mr Nalliah to address the council ‘‘reflecting upon his international experience, on the dangers of indoctrinated religious intolerance to the values, freedoms and stability of liberal and democratic societies’’. Cr Aziz told the Journal he would not back down from his stance — despite claiming to have received an anonymous death threat last week. He said a ‘‘coward’’ calling from a private number told him: ‘‘You insulted Islam, I’m going to come and kill you.’’ ‘‘I’m prepared for the consequences, even if it’s at significant personal cost,’’ Cr Aziz told the Journal. He said those claiming Islam was a ‘‘peaceful religion’’ was not ‘‘reflected in behaviours we’ve seen’’.

THE DANDENONG JOURNAL \ DECEMBER 3, 2012

Not backing down: Sam Aziz denies Islam is a peaceful religion. Cr Aziz cited recent anti-terrorism raids on Muslims living in the south-east as evidence that the threat was ‘‘not too far from home’’. Cr Aziz, who said he studied for a masters degree on religious terrorism at the Australian Defence Force Academy, said religious peace in Casey was ‘‘up to the Muslims’’. ‘‘When was the last time you saw a Hindu or Buddhist commit a terrorist

atrocity? Never. We do not welcome the imposition of other values on our own, especially when it is with threats of violence.’’ In justifying his planning condition upon the mosque, Cr Aziz said there were Koran verses that ‘‘can incite hatred’’ — ones that referred to people as ‘‘pigs and monkeys’’ and denigrated women. ‘‘I am a Christian. There’s not a single verse in the New Testament that I couldn’t live with, within my values in a liberal democracy.’’ He said other planning concerns included the mosque’s proximity to nearby churches. Narre Warren North MP Luke Donnellan lashed the ‘‘attitude’’ of ‘‘some Christian leaders in our community’’. ‘‘In this multicultural and multi-faith community we value the diversity and ability of all members to practise their faith. These people who peddle division should remember the lessons from overseas where fundamentalist approaches to religion simply destroy countries and communities.’’

HAYAT Doughan is hardly shocked by ongoing inflammatory anti-Islamic debates. A Muslim and a member of the Casey Multifaith Network, Ms Doughan said ‘‘it shouldn’t be this way but we’re getting used to it’’. ‘‘The best thing we can do is prove them wrong. We want to live our lives peacefully.’’ Ms Doughan, who has lived in Casey for 25 years, was speaking in reference to critics’ objections to a proposed Doveton mosque (see pages 4 and 14). She believes most residents do not hold the same views as Cr Sam Aziz and pastor Daniel Nalliah. “People want to learn about your culture. They want to learn about what you think,’’ she said. “If you want to talk about other religions, you have to learn about the other religion before you talk about it.’’ Ms Doughan said that contrary to recent commentary, Islam was a “religion of acceptance’’ and verses in the Koran celebrated diversity. The Afghan mosque, applying to resettle in Green Street, Doveton, had been based “peacefully’’ in Photinia Street for 15 years. “There’s been no fighting with anyone.

‘‘It’s a place of worship,’’ Ms Doughan said. The concerns about rogue Muslims, such as after the recent federal police anti-terrorist raids of homes in Melbourne’s south-east, were disproportionate. “This is one criminal incident. You have in every society good people and bad people. Just because one person is bad doesn’t make the whole box of apples rotten. “Some think Muslims don’t want to join in with the mainstream. We are Australian. We came here because Australia is a peaceful country.’’ Casey Multifaith Network president Pam Mamouney says she’s seen non-Muslims’ apprehension dissipate during the network’s tours of mosques. “I’ve seen old women initially scared but their attitude changes when they go in a mosque. The imam puts on a service, he answers questions. He gives out Turkish delight and shows hospitality.’’ She said Catch the Fire Ministries had agitated to destroy the fledgling multifaith network 51⁄2 years ago. “I’m disappointed by the vitriol by Catch the Fire Ministries. Radical people of all faiths cause problems, but you can’t judge an entire religion based on one group.’’

DEFIBRILLATORS, used to revive people under cardiac arrest, will be provided at all Greater Dandenong Council’s sports venues. The council will fund the potentially lifesaving devices at 32 venues at a cost of about $67,000, after a reduced-price bulk deal with St John Ambulance. Clubs are expected to train at least two members in using the defibrillators, which deliver electric impulses to revive ailing hearts. The devices have been found to greatly increase the survival chances of heart attack victims. Greater Dandenong mayor Angela Long said defibrillators at sporting venues were considered best practice sports management. “Heart attacks are a known risk at sporting events for both participants and spectators,” she said. “Funding defibrillators at all City of Greater Dandenong-owned sporting venues is the best way to manage that risk.” The Southern Football League rolled out defibrillators at all its venues after a Skye Football Club player collapsed at a game at Dingley Village this year. Casey Council has also recently announced a defibrillator roll out at its sports venues.

Braving the $2 ghostly affair ’TIS the season for dramas and pantomimes, and Noble Park Secondary College set the stage early with special effects that tingled a few spines. It was Halloween and the school’s Redback Theatre group transformed the drama room into a haunted house. The idea was hatched by drama co-ordinator Scott Caughey. It evoked the presence of the drama room’s ‘resident ghost’ Billy Bobbins. The story goes that Billy was fatally bitten by a spider, leaving his acting dreams unfulfilled. Now he whiles away the hours by toying around with arc lights and rustling the curtains. The haunted house was opened to visitors, who for $2 found themselves in a dark maze with grotesque images dancing on the wall and lightning flashes enhancing the terrors of zombies grasping at them from corners. “The response from those brave enough to enter was fantastic,’’ Mr Caughey said. ‘‘The terrified expressions on their faces were almost as entertaining as the spectacle inside. It’s raised money for our group and is likely to become an annual event.”

MARG STORK A MOMENT WITH MARG homes, and parks are festooned with flowers. And the visitors to Dandenong’s Cornerstone Drop-in Centre are cheered by spring’s graces. “There’s something about spring that seems to make people a bit happier than usual, and at Cornerstone we have much to thank God for,’’ says co-ordinator Pastor Don Cameron. The centre has had a new kitchen sink and cabinets installed and more volunteers stand by to make people feel welcome at free lunches. And two ladies wandered in to donate homemade blankets after hearing about the centre on Channel 10’s news. VCAL students from secondary schools have been helping in the kitchen and storeroom and

chatting with lonely people who come in off the street. Mr Cameron said Jordan, of Dandenong High School, was a frequent helper and noted it was pleasing when former student-volunteers returned. ANZ staff helped serve lunch and gave Cornerstone a donation that covered the cost of meals for two lunch-times. Then the staff of Daniels Corporation made another of their visits to help with lunchtime chores. Mr Cameron thanked the Rotary Club of Dandenong East, Rowville Baptist Church Sunday school, Australian Taxation Office staff and other groups that had bought swags for homeless people.

Stepping up for ‘Sisters’ BY CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS A CANCER survivor and her family are hoping to form a charity to help financially-stricken breast cancer patients meet steep treatment costs. Keysborough’s Lauren Bryant and husband Justin have faced more than $65,000 of expenses since she was diagnosed with a grade three breast tumour two years ago. But they are not alone — the mother of two knows many other young women through her Facebook breast cancer support group who have been financially shattered since their diagnoses. She tells of one member who, having had to give up work and facing countless bills, could not afford petrol to attend radiotherapy sessions. Her Facebook group, the Young Pink Sisters, rallied to her financial aid — even though many themselves were broke. Mrs Bryant said starting the charity would not be about awareness — ‘‘everyone knows they should be checking their boobs’’ — but to instead help

with the out-of-pocket costs. Maxine Morand, chief executive of Breast Cancer Network Australia, said most breast cancer patients were affected financially in some way. ‘‘Women may have to stop or reduce working hours for long periods of time and often have out-of-pocket costs associated with treatments including radiotherapy and MRI scans. ‘‘Many women who have private health insurance often incorrectly assume this will cover all their treatment costs.’’ Of course, it’s a tough enough fight without the expense. Ms Bryant was pregnant with her second son Jackson when diagnosed with an aggressive tumour, which was growing one centimetre a week. Soon after Jackson was induced at 34 weeks, his mother was whisked away to start her treatment. The Bryants opted for private health treatment so they could choose their surgeon, oncologist and other specialists. It also meant Ms Bryant avoided lengthy waits for treatment. She received $15,000 reconstructive

surgery swiftly after her double mastectomy — she knows others still waiting 10 years for a breast reconstruction on the public hospital system. Other expenses mount: wigs, garments to ease symptoms of lymph gland swelling, gene tests, body scans, chemo and radiotherapy. This Christmas, the Bryants have printed 1000 full-gloss calendars to raise money for breast cancer patients’ medical expenses. The calendars are whimsical, full of beefy male models coming to the aid of Young Pink Sisters members. The couple have also decorated their Keysborough house to the hilt, also to promote the cause. An electrically-lit Christmas tree and Santa and reindeer are a showpiece of their front lawn. Details on the calendar at facebook .com/MummaPsGirls

Council class action push over smart meters GREATER Dandenong councillor Peter Brown has foreshadowed a bid for the council to refuse the installation of smart meters on council-owned property. Cr Brown said the council could ‘‘lead by example’’ by resolving to refuse smart meters on its premises due to ‘‘evidence’’ of unhealthy radiation levels. He said the council could argue smart meters were a breach of occupational health and safety requirements. The council could also consider supporting residents who refuse smart meter installations, Cr Brown said. The council is working on a report to investigate legal costs for a class action against the smart meter roll out. The class action was rejected by a majority of member councils of the Municipal Association of Victoria.

Lisa Drought, corporate affairs general manager of electrical supplier United Energy, said smart meters had been found by a state government review to be safe and were being safely installed. ‘‘The data is in with regard to these concerns,’’ she said. ‘‘I’m concerned by fearmonging in the community and whether these questions and propositions are based on fact.’’ She cited an Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency finding that smart meters emitted less radiation than baby monitors, microwave ovens and mobile phones. An Energy Safe Victoria report in July found no evidence that smart meters were exploding or catching fire. ‘‘When smart meters fail, they fail safely and potentially reduce the risk of personal damage and injury,’’ the report stated.

Rail deal a win for jobs BY CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS ABOUT 70 manufacturing jobs have been ‘‘secured’’ after the state government ordered new V/Line carriages from Bombardier Transportation Australia’s Dandenong South factory. In a welcome boost for the region’s manufacturing hub, the government will buy 40 VLocity carriages to expand its regional rail fleet. The carriages are set to roll onto tracks from 2014, adding to 130 VLocity carriages on the network. The last of 40 is expected to be finished in late 2016. Bombardier overhauls team leader Mark Scholten, of Blind Bight, has worked at the factory for 10 years and said the contract should secure his job for almost another 10. The fitter-and-turner was pleased for not only his future but for his three apprentices at Bombardier, including Cranbourne’s Cory Brinkley. Both men are married, and with daughters. ‘‘It’s absolutely exciting. It’s good for Bombardier and good for local content suppliers as well,’’ Mr Scholten said.

On track: Mark Scholten and Ted Baillieu next to VLocity carriages at Bombardier’s factory last week. Picture: Cameron Lucadou-Wells Bombardier managing director Dan Osborne said the decision reinforced ‘‘the excellent performance’’ of the VLocity fleet. ‘‘These vehicles are designed and built in Australia using local expertise and the local supply chain.” The factory is also building 50 trams

Shooting victim in hospital A Noble Park man was injured when shots were fired from a moving car last Monday. Dandenong police said the 33-year-old man was walking along Kelvinside Road, Noble Park, about 7pm when he was shot in both legs. The man sought help from nearby residents, who called triple-0. He was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital, where he remains in a serious but non-life-threatening condition. Police are seeking witnesses and are searching for a small, light-blue hatchback believed to have been used in the shooting. Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Man charged over collision Major collision investigation unit detectives have charged a man over a smash involving a car and a motorcycle in Dandenong on Friday night. The collision took place at the intersection of the South Gippsland Highway and Princes Highway about 9.50pm. The 33-year-old Springvale male motorcyclist was taken to The Alfred hospital with life-threatening injuries and yesterday remained in a critical condition. A 22-year-old Pakenham man has been charged with negligently causing serious injury, failing to stop and failing to render assistance. He has been bailed to appear before the Melbourne Magistrates Court tomorrow.

INBRIEF

Tuesday. Police say a 10-litre jerry can of paint thinner was thrown into the car and set alight about 3.50am. Detective Senior Constable Nick Lamb of Greater Dandenong CIU said the car was significantly damaged. Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Greater Dandenong CIU on 9767 7487.

Casting factory cuts energy costs A Dandenong South automotive casting factory has taken a big step to cutting its annual power bill. Nissan Casting Australia used a $616,432 federal grant to replace four furnaces with a highefficiency tower melt furnace. Mark Dreyfus, parliamentary secretary for industry and innovation and Isaacs MP, said the project would cut the plant’s carbon emissions by 41 per cent, saving the company $252,000 a year in energy costs.

Disqualified driver charged A disqualified driver had his car impounded for 30 days after being detected speeding at 170km/h in a 100km/h zone on the Monash Freeway. Dandenong highway patrol officers intercepted the sedan just after 4.30am on November 23. Police say the 27-year-old driver, of Springvale, gave a false name and address. Police allegedly found cannabis and amphetamines in the vehicle. The man was charged and his car impounded.

Caddy cruising Chestnut Gardens retirement village staff member Ashwin Lennox and resident Eileen McCullough lapped up the luxury of a 1940 Cadillac last Wednesday. The vintage vehicle was among several hot rods and old automobiles driven to the village for display by Dandenong Valley Historic Cars.

Re: Mosque plan irks church I would like to share with the readers that the real issue is the building of a mosque, not the religion Islam. Church leader Reverend Daniel Nalliah misquotes and misinterprets Islamic teachings without having any adequate knowledge and information of Islam and its teachings. Accusing a religion and hurting the feelings of its adherents — this is absolutely not the Australian way. We’re living in a very peaceful and harmonious society. Instead of walls of hatred being erected we need peace to prevail, and for this to occur people of all faiths must join together. For peaceful co-existence in the community, it’s very

Qamar D Khokhar, Dandenong

What has Islam and Muslims to do with ‘race’? There are Pakistani Christians, Hindus and Muslims, just as there are British Christians, Hindus and Muslims. Islam and Muslims have nothing to do with race or ethnicity. Am I a racist when I criticise certain practices of the Catholic church or Hinduism? It seems we are only smeared as ‘racist’ when we criticise Islam. No doubt there’s a lot to criticise about certain Islamic practices and the divisive ways in which some Islamic community leaders and clerics seek to impose their constant grievances onto the rest of the community. Where is my choice as ratepayer and taxpayer to not fund Islam-only causes such as curtains on public swimming pools or Muslim-only prayer

rooms in public hospitals or Muslim-only washrooms in universities ? Where is my freedom from (Islamic) religion? Why do we allow this religious apartheid to divide our communities? Raoul Machal (via web)

Cr Wayne Smith needs to read the Koran, which is Islam’s guidebook and cannot be neglected or disobeyed. It is loaded with hate for all nonMuslims (infidels) and includes statements such as ‘‘Kill the infidel wherever you may find him’’, and explicitly teaches that Christians and Jews are descended from monkeys and apes. Another command comes in the Koran at 8:12 — ‘‘Your Lord inspired the angels with the message: I am with you. Give firmness to the Believers [i.e. Muslims]. I will terrorise the unbelievers [i.e. the rest of us] . Therefore smite them on their necks and every joint and incapacitate them. Strike off their heads and cut off each of their fingers and toes.’’ The people of Dandenong realise this attitude is vastly different from the attitude promoted by churches. They follow the New Testament, which promotes ‘‘love’’ — for example, ‘‘Love

your enemies’’ and ‘‘Do good to them that despitefully use you.’’. Joe (via web)

Re: Dingley arterial: why bother with Cheltenham Road overpass? The road is being built to freeway standard with provision to become an M-class road at an undefined point in the future. It is preferable to do as many grade separations now, compared with when the road is trafficked in the future and construction costs increase. I applaud the state government for increasing scope now to separate this road. Bill (via web)

need to house extra cars and, while we are referred to as ‘the second city’, I hope that Dandenong can preserve some of its unique heritage like the Heritage Hill precinct, which would become overshadowed and choked from oversized development, pollution and increased traffic. I hope sense prevails. Cybilbutler (via web)

I would like to thank Greater Dandenong Council for voting against the proposed development at 30 MacPherson Street, Dandenong. I find it worrisome that there are houses that need significant heritage protection afforded to them, namely three 90-year-old cottages in Scott Street that could be demolished to make way for dwellings and a cafe (Journal, 19/11/12). There are at least four other examples listed in the same story. More work still needs to be done by the council to protect our streets from inappropriate development. Patsy Horne, Dandenong

Re: Church ‘ruined my career’ Good on you, Carmel Rafferty (Journal, 26/11/12) for speaking out against the predatory priests who prowled Holy Family parish, and thank you, current parish priest, Father Michael Shadbolt, for speaking out about the Catholic Church’s use of Holy Family as a ‘‘dumping

ground’’ for predatory priests. I grew up in Doveton and was involved in parish activities, first as a primary school pupil and later as a leader in the youth club. I count myself fortunate that I was never sexually assaulted, but I was spiritually and emotionally raped in ways that many of my generation accepted as the natural course of things. I remember wondering, even as a 12 year old, why some of the people assigned to teach us about the love of God exuded a palpable aura of malevolence. Of course, gut feelings were worthless in the face of blind faith, and our parents seldom believed us when we told them about some of the cruel punishments meted out in the name of discipline and obedience. Fortunately, times have changed, and the truth is now bubbling to the surface as it inevitably must. I was highly suspicious of one priest in particular, and while I could never prove anything at the time, that person went on to be convicted as a sexual predator. I wonder if the terms of reference of the national royal commission will be broad enough to allow testimony from people such as myself, who suspected foul play but could never prove it. Legally, what I have to say is likely to be labelled ‘‘trivial conjecture’’, but if it helps in some small way to break the isolation of even one of the victims, I’m happy to put it on record. Nick Costello (via web)

Greater Dandenong councillors donned White Ribbon Day campaign T-shirts last Monday. Mayor Angela Long, fourth from left, said ‘‘we must all work together as a community’’ to prevent violence against women and children. “One in three women is physically assaulted in their lifetime — the equivalent of 17,000 women in Greater Dandenong,’’ she said. About half of domestic violence cases are thought to be unreported. Last week, male council staff signed a pledge against family violence during a rolling program of White Ribbon events.

FEATURESTORY

Back into the furnace It’s the start of summer and thoughts are on the beach, cool drinks and barbecues. But during the warmer months, there is always the lurking danger of a bushfire. TARA McGRATH talks to the Fire Services Commissioner to see how the season is shaping up. t has been one wet winter, as far as recent memory tells anyway, and the city’s water storages are as healthy as they have been for a decade. But memory can be deceptive. It fails to remind us that those things to which we recently have become accustomed, like prolonged water restrictions and dry-weather football, are at odds with normal. This year, weather and fire risk, are returning to long-term established patterns, much like those that preceded the fires during the summer of 1997. The previous winter — of 1996 — had been a soggy one. But that didn’t stop the flames roaring through 400 hectares of the Dandenong Ranges and killing three people. Fire Services Commissioner Craig Lapsley says that in hindsight, the size of that particular fire was comparatively small: ‘‘But it had a very, very direct path.’’ Mr Lapsley, whose focus is on the summer months ahead, says that in areas like the Ranges with a dense population area and ample fire-fuel, even those smaller blazes can have serious consequences. ‘‘The thing that defines fires in those areas is that they don’t have to be very big. You can have a fire of a few hundred hectares but they will still have an enormous impact because of how densely we live — the fire is always going to be near homes.’’ As people prepare to go on holidays to celebrate Christmas or the New Year, they’re being urged to consider what they can do to prevent themselves from being in a dangerous situation this summer. This year marks the introduction of several new initiatives in the Dandenong Ranges and surrounds suggested by the Royal Commission that investigated the horrific Black Saturday bushfires. But despite the warnings — like sirens, text messages and community refuges — Mr Lapsley is urging residents not to be complacent. ‘‘The shared responsibility and shared obligation still has to be there. People have to take responsibility for themselves, their actions, their preparedness.’’ The Bureau of Meteorology has predicted a return to a ‘‘normal summer’’ — like we used to experience in the late 90s before the drought. That means above-average maximum temperatures and above-average minimum temperatures. This means fuels like grass don’t take on overnight moisture, so the next day they will be in a drier fuel condition. ‘‘January and February will be the peak of it but people need to be conscious of what happens

Inferno: CFA warns for preparedness this fire season.

CHECKLIST Smoky haze: The aftermath of a fire at Lyndhurst earlier this year. Picture: Gary Sissons in December as well,’’ Mr Lapsley said. ‘‘We’re not saying it’s absolutely doomsday, but fires will travel in the types of climates that are being forecast — travel and do damage.’’ One of the simplest things residents can do to protect their property is to look over their backyard fence if they live next to parkland, Mr Lapsley said. ‘‘See what’s over it — how many people dump their rubbish over the back fence, how many people put their own grass clippings over the fence — because it can be out of sight and out of mind.’’ John Schauble — manager of policy and planning for the Fire Services Commissioner and captain of the Sassafras-Ferny Creek fire brigade — said people in the suburbs often overlook the risks around them. ‘‘People have this thing of ‘I live in the suburbs, it’s not my problem’. Well, in fact it is, particularly in newer developments around Rowville and places like that because you are exposed to parcels of bush around you,’’ Mr Schauble said. He warned that anyone within 700 metres of a substantial bush area was at risk of a bushfire or ember attack. ‘‘Because a third of the population in the outer-eastern suburbs changes every five years, it’s difficult to engage people who have only just arrived, as opposed to people who have been there 1000 years — it’s a challenge.’’

BRACING FOR FIRE SEASON: ■ Have your photos and important documents stored digitally. ■ Make sure your insurance policy is paid up and a copy is kept at your workplace. ■ Maintain your garden by mowing or pruning. ■ Plan what you will do in the event of a fire near you. — Source: Office of the Fire Services Commissioner

However, the state’s emergency bodies say they have learnt from the disasters of February 2009 — Black Saturday — and are trying to minimise those potential risks. Mr Lapsley said an array of warning systems was being introduced: ‘‘The Royal Commission saw the warning systems as not reliable or sophisticated, so there’s been a lot of work to improve them — both reliability and options. Not everyone has a mobile phone, not everyone hears the siren, not everyone listens to the radio.’’ For the first time ever, if you’re in an area that’s been threatened by a fire or similar emergency and your mobile phone network is Telstra, you’ll receive a text message alert. Messages would previously only be sent to users whose billing address was in the affected area. Now, even if you live in Mount Waverley and you’re enjoying a picnic in Sassafras, you’ll receive an alert. Mr Schauble called the technology enhancement ‘‘groundbreaking’’. Another ‘‘first’’ for the Hills area is that three

helicopters will be based at Healesville and Olinda this summer to fight fires from the air. But they’re dwarfed in size by the incredible Elvis helicopter, based at Essendon — and smaller ones, perhaps sadly, don’t get a name. Sirens at various CFA stations across the area have also been activated this year — a fiveminute continuous siren signifies an urgent emergency in the area for which residents should seek further information. A 90-second siren means a fire unit is responding to an incident. On the ground, community fire refuges will also be trialled over this summer. Mr Lapsley said the office was hoping to learn from the initiatives in the Dandenongs. One refuge will be built in Schauble’s home town of Ferny Creek — pure coincidence, he insists with a laugh — and all three locations for the refuges have been chosen based on existing infrastructure. The Ferny Creek refuge is being established at the primary school, which was built after Black Saturday, so it already meets certain standards. When school finishes before Christmas, the building will be upgraded. ‘‘You wouldn’t build a concrete bunker for 200 people because that’s all you could ever use it for,’’ said Mr Schauble. While Mr Schauble says they’re unlikely to be used in 2013, the pilot refuges will become a template in further years. ‘‘In each community it would work differently — you have a different make-up of people, different size and different locations.’’ But as for now, Mr Schauble says, the area is tracking well come bushfire season. ‘‘But come late January, if we haven’t had much rain, people will need to be prepared.’’ DECEMBER 3, 2012 \ THE DANDENONG JOURNAL 19

Tackling a retail revival BY CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS DANDENONG Retail Traders Association’s new chairwoman Glenys Cooper will be ‘angling’ for ways to bring customers back to Dandenong. Her own fishing tackle shop Compleat Angler has been resolute during disruption caused by roadworks. She wants the streets to be more carfriendly to help draw in customers. ‘‘I’ve been lucky that I can contact my customers on a database and say the works are finished,’’ she said. ‘‘For retailers like a bakery or a clothes shop, customers will just find a store that’s closer to them and not come back. Dandenong retail has gone through horrible times. It has been extremely tough but the roadworks are nearly done — I want to put it back on the map as a retail and business district.’’ Ms Cooper has put a two-year limit on her tenure. She said it should be long enough to make significant changes — and one may be to change the association’s name to include

Change-over: Roy Aspinall with his successor Glenys Cooper. ‘retail and business’ in the title. Ms Cooper said she and a revamped, expanded committee would try to work with the Dandenong Chamber of Commerce and Greater Dandenong Council to bring traders’ views to the fore. There will also be an internet presence — website and Facebook pages — to connect with traders. Ms Cooper was grateful for the support of other businesses when her store, and $400,000 of stock, was des-

troyed two years ago. As she rebuilt, she felt she needed to give back on the DRTA executive. She paid tribute to outgoing chairman Roy Aspinall, who has stoically led the association since its inception 16 years ago. ‘‘No one else had up their hand to say ‘hey, I’ll take on that role’. He’s given so much to the community in a huge way.’’ Mr Aspinall, who approached Ms Cooper to take the reins, said he would continue to help where needed.

Win for ‘chill out’ store HEIDI Rose Clothing is wearing Dandenong Retail Traders Association’s top annual award. The Foster Street women’s clothing store was named Central Dandenong Retailer of the Year at the association’s Christmas dinner last Tuesday. Owner Kathryne Turtan-Lane said her store was an ‘‘icon’’ of Dandenong for 35 years, unique for being a place for customers to ‘‘chill out’’. Her store was not a slave to fashion trends, she said. It celebrated curvaceous women’s shapes with colourful garments that were ‘‘oddities in the fashion world’’. Ms Turtan-Lane said the store also ‘‘nourished the soul’’ with books, CDs, tarot readings and meditation classes. The store has survived ‘‘dramatic changes’’ to its streetscape, namely the recent closing of Robinson Street. Ms Turtan-Lane said her loyal customers were the key to her survival. ‘‘It’s the only place in Dandenong you can do retail shopping and feel nourished. I’d like to see Heidi Rose continue to grow and shine its light.’’

If you’re in two minds, leave early. The best way to prepare for this fire season is to stay informed and plan to leave early, before you see smoke or fire. Plan to leave early: ü Talk to everyone you live with so you all know when you’re going to leave and where you’re going to go if a fire starts. ü Pack a relocation kit with important documents and essential items. ü On high-risk days, check Fire Danger Ratings and fire warnings on the CFA website and listen to local radio. Don’t wait and hope for the best. Visit the CFA website to find out how you can be FireReady.

A lifetime of giving OBITUARY November 16, 1925-October 5, 2012

BY MARG STORK Happy couples: Doreen and Leo Barnes, and John and Anna Crnkovic.

Members’ memorable milestones CONGRATULATIONS were the order of the day at Springvale Senior Citizens Multicultural Club when popular members Doreen and Leo Barnes of Mt Waverley and John and Anna Crnkovic of Dandenong North celebrated memorable milestones. Mr and Mrs Barnes celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary, and Mr and Mrs Crnkovic their 50th. The Barneses received messages from the Queen and Prime Minister Julia Gillard, among many others. The pair met on a blind date when Mr Barnes was 19 and Mrs Barnes 17, and married a year later at St James’ Anglican Church in St Kilda.

The couple have one daughter, Sue and two grandchildren — Ryan and Marlo, and five great-grandchildren. The Crnkovics were born in Croatia, with John coming to Australia in 1959, later sponsoring his wife to follow. ‘‘He is friendly and outgoing and soon assimilated to the Australian way of life,” Mrs Crnkovic said. “We finally settled in Dandenong and we have lots of friends in the senior multicultural club. We look on them as family.’’ The couple have one daughter, Susan, and a granddaughter, Allegra Grace Jones. — Marg Stork

BETTY Luxford led a busy and rewarding life as a selfless community leader. She was mayoress three times — her late husband Bob was a Springvale City councillor for 18 years — and volunteered with Springvale fire brigade ladies auxiliary, the Red Cross, Meals on Wheels, Urimbirra Mental Health Association, was life governor of Dandenong Hospital, and Guides district commissioner. In 1986 she was honoured in the Australia Day awards as Springvale citizen of the year. She was the youngest of three daughters and her parents Albert and Hazel Crump owned Crump’s General Store in the heart of Dandenong. She would fondly tell of learning to ride a bicycle between bags of flour and stock feed on the store’s floor. When she finished school at Dandenong High, she worked with Melbourne and Metropolitan Board of Works as a draftswoman/tracer. It was a ‘love match’ when she and future hus-

band Bob met while playing tennis. They married in 1947 at St James’ Anglican Church, Dandenong and built a home in Ann Street. The couple had five children — Garry, Gail, Ross, Glen and Anne — 11 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Mrs Luxford travelled extensively overseas and around Australia driving a campervan herself, was a life member of Keysborough Bowls Club, keen gardener, avid reader and had a special interest in arts and crafts. Her well attended funeral service was at the Keysborough Bowls Club. A candle, symbolising hope, peace, and remembrance was lit during the service.

Dancing to a multicultural beat BY CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS contemporary African dance group, born from the passion of a Ghanaian street kid, will be bringing extra drums to Drum Theatre this month. Asanti Dance Theatre artistic director Appiah Assan formed a group from ‘‘all backgrounds’’ for the touring show Sankofa. The dancers are from a range of cultures. The dance is influenced by west African traditions as well as contemporary Australian dance companies such as Bangarra and Chunky Move. It promises to be a visceral experience, humming with live energetic music from sound artist Dale Gorefinkel and four instrumentalists. Assan, a child prodigy, has been trained in a wide range of disciplines, learning hip hop, acrobatics and drumming since being discovered as a talented 12 year old. He formed the group in Ghana with friends living on the streets in 2003, with the aim of spreading messages of tolerance and peace.

INBRIEF Art exhibition Tiny specimens of art have been unveiled in the 9 by 5 exhibition at Walker Street Gallery and Art Centre. The show features more than 100 artworks — each 9x5 inches. They include landscape paintings, abstract works, collage and conceptual pieces. The concept is based on an exhibition of painted 9x5-inch cigar box lids at Buxton’s of Swanston Street, Melbourne in 1889. The free exhibition runs until December 22.

Christmas greetings

Raw power: Feel the Afro-contemporary beats of Asanti Dance Theatre in Dandenong this month. bring the Ghanaian community closer to Westerners. He only occasionally performs, al though he confesses to dancing along as he watches his company in action.

Sankofa takes place at Drum Theatre, 226 Lonsdale Street, Dandenong, at 8pm on December 20. Bookings: 9771 6666 or drumtheatre.com.au.

Christmas street decorations will be ‘unwrapped’ in Greater Dandenong’s new public spaces in Noble Park and Springvale. In Noble Park’s Civic Space and Buckley Street, there will be ‘Seasons Greetings’ bin signage and decorative flower crates. In Springvale, 10 trees and flower crates will adorn Multicultural Place and a sky sign will be hoisted in Springvale Road. In Dandenong, a refurbished Santa will be atop of the Bendigo Bank building, decorations in Palm Plaza, and Christmas scenes on the doors of Drum Theatre. Other activities include the carols by candlelight in Dandenong Park on December 21 and a Christmas Eve family day at Dandenong Market.

DEPARTED Oakleigh District coach Stephen Wright has one question for his former club after a player mutiny forced him from his post last week. What happens when the players don’t like the next coach? Wright, who was named Victorian Australian Football Coaches Association senior coach of the year earlier this month, resigned last week after a group of about 20 players threatened to leave the club if he was not replaced. Wright’s shock resignation has had further effects, with the coach telling the Journal two vice-presidents, the club secretary and another board member had all left the club following the nasty saga. ‘‘What happens if the players aren’t happy with the coach next year? Will they do the same thing?’’ Wright said. ‘‘Does it mean the players are running the footy club? That would be pretty sad.

‘‘The players said they are the most important people at the footy club. ‘‘That means you are forgetting about the board, the sponsors and members, and especially the volunteers. That is pretty poor.’’ The Wright family has had a long association with Oakleigh District, with his wife Kerrie on the board, his sister-in-law on the board and his son Josh in the senior side. Wright said his son had been left out of the player revolt, which appeared to have started after Wright made it clear several players would be asked not to come back in 2013 due to having poor attitudes. He said a number of other players had expressed support for him. Wright led Oakleigh District to the Southern Football League division 2 grand final this past season. The side suffered a narrow loss to East Malvern. The former Sydney Swans best and fairest winner was looking forward to

taking his side a step further in 2013 but instead was called by new club president Greg Kiellerup telling him a group of players would leave if he didn’t resign. ‘‘The new president raised it with me and asked me if it would be best if I stood down or stayed on. I said in my opinion it would be best for me to stay on.’’ The players met again, then called Wright last Sunday week asking him to meet with them. He couldn’t attend but asked them to meet him and the club board last Monday night. In the meeting Wright said the players told him he had problems with his communication and had not been training them hard enough. Wright admitted communication with players was not his strong suit. The concerns about training left Wright confused, as he had challenged his players to improve their fitness outside of the football club.

Ewan Kennedy previews the new Mercedes GL-Class n interesting feature of the new vehicle market is that 4WDs and SUVs have a significantly longer life cycle than cars. This reflects back to the days when they were based on light trucks and truck buyers were more interested in running costs and practicality than in owning the last word in style. Mercedes-Benz’s big GL-Class is a case in point. The new model we have just tested in Germany is a sensible update of the outgoing six-year-old model, not a totally new vehicle. Among other things, this helps to keep the new price down and to slow the rate of depreciation. While the external body components are all new, they retain a strong resemblance to the superseded GL. The result is a large wagon that’s imposing without being aggressive in its stance. The squared-off shape means the big Mercedes GL-Class has always been an immensely practical, genuine seven seater. More interior width and height have been squeezed out of the new body. The existing

As a start, 90 kilograms has been removed from its weight to reduce fuel use and CO2 emissions. Despite the lower weight, the body is even stiffer than before and, together with other sound-dampening measures, this makes for a more relaxed interior. The engineers put strong emphasis on comfort and quietness. The GL-Class does have an all-new interior with the latest Mercedes-Benz theme of simplicity and elegance.

hailand’s devastating 2011 floodwaters meant that no Honda CR-V models were available in Australia from October last year until July this year. Now things are really starting to pick up with the launch of an all-new, fourth-generation model. Despite being shorter, lower and lighter than its predecessor, the gen-four CR-V is more spacious. Its body is 20mm shorter, height is down by 30mm and the windscreen has been moved forward by 60mm. The 2WD Honda CR-V VTi and VTi (with navigation) are powered by a 2.0-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine. Honda measures the CR-V’s combined fuel consumption figure at 7.8 litres/100km for the manual version and 7.7 litres for the automatic. The three 4WD versions – the VTi, the VTi-S and the VTi-L – are blessed with a bigger 2.4-litre powerplant. Honda’s combined fuel consumption figure for the 4WD automatic is 8.7 litres.

Retooled Scorps set to name new coach BY BRAD McGRATH CASEY Scorpions are expected to make an announcement on their senior coaching position as early as today. The troubled VFL club was doing a second round of interviews with candidates late last week, with football manager Matthew Young confirming an appointment was imminent. ‘‘We are doing second interviews at the moment,’’ he said. ‘‘We’re hopeful of naming the coach very soon.’’ The Scorpions’ alignment with Melbourne will continue next season, with several coaching candidates believed to be at the Demons. Young said preseason training was under way with ex-North Melbourne rookie Ben Hughes, Cranbourne ruckman Michael Boland and six Gippsland Power graduates among the new faces. He confirmed that Rian McGough, Dave Collins and Dean Cleven had all departed the club. Cleven has joined Eastern Football League powerhouse Noble Park while

McGough has joined ex-Scorpions James Wall and Ben Waite at Goulburn Valley League club Tatura. Collins will play with a local club after work commitments meant he could not commit to another VFL season. ‘‘Our list is pretty good and we’ve done a fair bit of recruiting,’’ Young said. The Scorpions will go into their opening match next season with a significantly different team than the one that took them to the minor premiership this year. The Demons’ savage list cuts mean Matthew Bate, Jamie Bennell, Lucas Cook, Liam Jurrah, Ricky Petterd, Jai Sheahan and Leigh Williams have been moved on. Clint Bartram, Brad Green and Kelvin Lawrence have all retired while Stefan Martin and Brent Maloney have moved to Brisbane and Jared Rivers joined Geelong as a free agent.

Moving on: Dean Cleven has moved to EFL club Noble Park for season 2013. Picture: Wayne Hawkins

Rangers primed for tough clash BY ROY WARD DANDENONG Rangers have set the stage for a mid-season classic when they visit Bendigo Spirit in Bendigo this Saturday night. The Spirit have the best record in the WNBL with 10-1 and get to host the Rangers (10-2) in a battle that will decide who goes into the Christmas break as the championship favourite. Last Saturday night, the Rangers easily accounted for Canberra Capitals 91-72 at Dandenong Stadium with Olympian Jenna O’Hea the game high scorer with 22 points, seven assists and five rebounds. Rangers coach Mark Wright said his side looked forward to the clash with the Spirit but had to work on some key areas such as their shooting and their rebounding. The rebound count against Canberra was split 40-40. “We’ve had a couple of games now where we are not shooting a high percentage but still scoring 85-90 points,” he said. “We had a lot of easy baskets we didn’t finish, and that can burn you. “But we slowly got better with that over the match and I think we played OK, not great, but Canberra made us play that way, so credit to them.” Emerging Rangers star Sara Blicavs was a major contributor off the bench with 17 points in 21 minutes. Wright said the Rangers’ bench was continuing to be a big help to the team. “The energy we get off the bench is a massive strength for us. “Sara is coming along in leaps and bounds, Monica Wright is showing more and more and Carley [Mijovic] is looking great in training and we have to now get her to transition that form into matches. “Not many teams are bothering us right now but we need to be consistent in everything we do.” The Rangers play the Spirit at Bendigo Stadium from 7.30pm this Saturday .

INBRIEF Greens steal Thunder Dandenong Thunder has officially lost star Luke Sherbon to Bentleigh Greens while striker Nate Foster is rumoured to be following him to the Greens. Bentleigh confirmed Sherbon’s signature last week, with the Welshman to take both a playing role and a key coaching role in the club’s junior program. Foster is reportedly in negotiations with the Greens about a move to the club. Sherbon told the Journal on November 25 that he was moving to another VPL club which had made an offer to good to refuse. Sherbon’s loss will hurt the Thunder immensely while Foster’s loss would be equalling as troubling, as the pair combined for almost 40 goals this past Victorian Premier League season in which the Thunder won the treble.

Karate time Allstars martial arts acadamy in Dandenong is hosting its free annual state grading day at St John’s Regional College, Dandenong this Sunday. The academy has removed its entry fee for the event to make it accessible for people to come and see its various martial arts students in action. The grading day will also include a sausage sizzle and other family friendly activities while students will also demonstrate the skills from self-defence classes, karate and muay thai classes. Doors open at 8am and the event finishes at 2pm.

New Dandenong boss

* Ladder does not include the result of the Townsville v West Coast game, which finished after deadline yesterday.

Dandenong Basketball Association has appointed former Australian player David Graham as its new chief executive. He replaces highly respected former chief executive Graeme Allan, who was poached by Basketball Australia earlier in the year to take on a senior role with the national body. Graham had an extensive playing career in the NBL and played for Australia in the 1990 world championships before moving into the corporate world. DBA chairman Lou Godfrey said Graham’s experience in marketing and digital media helped him win the role. “From an outstanding field of candidates, David was the board’s choice,” Godfrey said. “He has had very successful experience in high-profile organisations and we felt he was the most suited candidate to develop the DBA further, following the outstanding work of Graeme Allen.” Graham is expected to commence his new role in January.

Young talent steps up for aerobics glory A KEYSBOROUGH student flew overseas to the world aerobics championships in The Netherlands and leapt to a world championship. Asuka Fujihara, a 13-year-old Haileybury College student, won the male cadet world championship, winning over the seven-judge panel in the finals to earn the highest score. Competitive aerobics involved competitors performing routines and being judged on their moves. Fujihara said he was proud to take home a world championship after finishing third in the same event last year on the Gold Coast. ‘‘I wasn’t too nervous in the first two routines, 38

THE DANDENONG JOURNAL \ DECEMBER 3, 2012

although I got a bit nervous in the finals but still put in my best routine,’’ he said. ‘‘When everyone has competed we went up to the presentations and they went through each category. ‘‘I knew I had got all ones from the judges so I knew I had won.’’ Fujihara trains extensively for competitions and the trip to The Netherlands was his first overseas visit. ‘‘I train three times a week and during the lead up I trained four times a week,’’ he said. ‘‘I do one to two-hour sessions with a warm-up and then some two-minute full routines

followed by fitness work after that.’’ He also made friends with several of his competitors when then got time to mix after the competitions. ‘‘I got to meet quite a few people there. They all spoke English so it was easy for us all to talk.’’ Fujihara comes from a large family of seven brothers and sisters with older brothers Kenji, year 11, and Yoshi, year 9, both competing in other divisions. Kenji came second in the senior male individual section and fourth in the senior pairs division with year 12 student Rachael Capp.

Leaping star: Asuka Fujihara performs during the world aerobics championships. Yoshi came third in the junior pairs division with Lauren Smith (year 9). — Roy Ward

Single ball sets pace for Panthers BY ROY WARD

Big impact: Dandenong’s Justin Butterfield took some key wickets on Saturday.

Picture: Wayne Hawkins

ONE ball rarely changes a two-innings cricket match, but in Twenty20 a single delivery can have a devastating effect. Dandenong opening bowler Justin Butterfield’s first ball in Hawthorn-Monash University’s run chase of 123 at Shepley Oval on Saturday is a prime example of what one delivery can do. Butterfield (2-14) tore through Hawks opener Lachie Inglis’ guard to rattle his stumps and the impact of the wicket proved significant as the Hawks never recovered, being bowled out for 62 in 15.4 overs and 60 minutes. Butterfield also snared Inglis’ opening partner William Tavare later in the opening over while at the other end James Wilcock bowled Radhik Gooneratne in his first over to leave the Hawks at 3-1. While Hawks captain David Alleyne (13) and Rob Keogh (17) showed a hint of a recovery the pair were both dismissed and the Hawks’ lower order and tail barely raised a whimper to be bowled out. All-rounder James Nanopoulos (2-11) and legspinner Daniel Doran (2-17) played their roles later in the innings while two run-outs added to the visitors’ misery. Earlier in the day the Panthers had their struggles with the bat, falling to 3-12 before Nanopoulos (34 off 28) came to the crease, while some later hitting by Michael Sweeney (28 off 22) in the

final over took their total to 8-123. Panthers captain Tom Donnell said his side had done well to arrest the momentum in the match after failing to take control when batting first. He said Butterfield’s wicket was the perfect start to the innings. ‘‘Momentum in Twenty20 cricket is pretty important,’’ Donnell said. ‘‘I think that first ball gave us momentum, especially coming off the last over of our innings where we batted well. ‘‘They had the momentum going into their innings and that first wicket swung it our way.’’ Donnell said his bowlers were exceptional on the day but the Panthers’ batsmen had to improve. ‘‘Our bowlers were fantastic,’’ he said. ‘‘Butters [Butterfield] was pretty fired up, he bowled well early and he has bowled well this year.’’ Alleyne said his side had failed to fight back from its early struggles. ‘‘At the halfway stage we were in a brilliant position,’’ he said. ‘‘But losing wickets at the top of the order compounded our efforts and then we didn’t show any steel or belief that the game was winnable. ‘‘Losing those early wickets lost the wind from our sails. With the younger guys it’s more not counterpunching and instead reacting. ‘‘We will learn from this situation.’’ The Panthers played Melbourne in a Twenty20 match yesterday with the match finishing after the Journal went to print.

North Dandenong rolled for 40 SPRINGVALE South is within reach of a vital outright win after tearing through the North Dandenong top order in the DDCA Turf 1 competition on Saturday. The Bloods won the toss at Alex Nelson Reserve and sent the visitors in to bat. That decision proved a wise one with North Dandenong falling to 5-11 and never recovering as the Bloods bowled them out for 40 in 20.4 overs. Bloods spearhead Tim Ford (5-15) was the chief destroyer while opening partner Jarrod Armitage (2-20) and Damian Stoter-Rainer (3-3) also did plenty of damage. In response, the Bloods spent 40 overs at the crease making 7-208, with Sri Lankan import Jeevantha Kulatunga (64 off 59 balls) showing some good touch as did Jackson Sketcher (51). The Bloods declared, leaving two overs to get a late wicket, but North Dandenong openers Scott Neeson and

Shane Clark held strong to end play on 0-4. They need to bat for most of day 2 to avoid an outright loss which would help the Bloods back within reach of the top four after some disappointments in the opening few rounds. Coomoora has put itself in prime position to upset an in-form Mordialloc after posting a challenging 7-238 from its 80 overs at Coomoora Reserve on Saturday. After struggling to 2-31 Jake D’Atri (62) and captain-coach Paul Hill (50) put on 67 for the third wicket before Hill and Rob Johnston (58) added 68 for the fourth wicket to get their side within reach of a good score. The Roos put together a couple of small partnerships in the final session to get to 238, a score which will trouble Mordialloc on day 2. Heinz Southern Districts will need early wickets when play resumes on day 2 of its clash with top side Dandenong West. HSD was bowled out for 163 with vital runs coming from Justin

Davis (56) and Trevor Davis (51) at the bottom of the order. Alex Roberts took five wickets for the Bulls. In response, the Bulls are 2-48 at stumps with David Weerden and Roberts at the crease. Hallam Kalora Park faces a tough ask to beat in-form Buckley Ridges after being bowled out for 144 on Saturday. Hallam opener Rhys Serpanchy (44) was the best of the batsmen as Buckley Ridges’ opening bowler Jeremy Kuru took 6-37. The Ridges are 0-21 heading into day 2. Parkfield has a narrow advantage after the first day of its clash with outof-form Doveton at Robinson Reserve. Parkfield bowled the Doves out for 119 after the home side won the toss and batted first. Former Premier Cricket left-arm bowler Rodney Bird led the way for Parkfield taking 3-43 while Shane Bell (2-23) and Travis D’souza (2-28) were also troublesome. But Parkfield could not consolidate its position, losing two
