‘best years of their lives’ under way at a sparkling new school POINT COOK
There were smiles all round at St Mary of the Cross Primary School last week as pupils finally got the chance to inspect their new surroundings. The first school built in Point Cook’s Saltwater Coast estate opened its doors to 170 pupils, ranging from prep to grade 6, last Friday. Principal Leon Colla said the school had been designed to reflect the estate’s proximity to Port Phillip Bay, and teachers were excited to show pupils their new classrooms. “We had hoped to do the handover last year, but we had to wait so today is the first opportunity students have had to see their new school.” The school is expected to ease the burden on Point Cook’s other Catholic primary schools, which are struggling to meet demand. Mr Colla said St Mary of the Cross would grow over the next five years to accommodate about 800 pupils. He anticipated that at least two more stages of the school would be built in that time. \ LL
hands-on plan a boon for student teachers EDUCATION
Student teachers will be put through their paces at schools in Point Cook and Seabrook as part of a plan to improve training for future educators. The $1.6 million plan announced by Teaching Profession Minister Peter Hall will create 12 professional academies across Victoria. The first academy will be based at Point Cook Senior Secondary College. Carranballac P-9, Point Cook P-9 and Seabrook Primary School will be partners in the academy, along with Victoria University. Mr Hall says the academies will provide

ancient battles spark up again for comics creator TARNEIT
Shaun Paulet has always loved comic books. As a child, his mother bought him a new comic every month, hoping it would encourage him to read regularly. Paulet couldn’t get enough of them. “My first comic was X-Men in 1991. That’s what hooked me. I enjoyed the fantasy and escape from reality.” The Tarneit resident is about to launch his own series of comics, Xtreme Champion Tournament. The series is about some of history’s most famous heroes and villains, including Greek gladiator Spartacus. Paulet says the series is set in 2069, when the remains of heroes, villains, monsters and creatures long believed to be myth or legend have been found and cloned. The clones are then trained and forced to fight each other to death in an arena, with people looking on. Paulet’s inspiration for his comic was New Zealand TV series, Spartacus. “I loved the TV series and when it ended I came up with how I would continue the stories of most of the characters and introduced some other heroes from throughout history,” he says. Paulet has been working on the comic for about 12 months. To help fund its release, he has launched an online crowd-funding campaign. He’s hoping to raise $5000 in the next four weeks to allow him to print and distribute the comic and travel to the US to promote his work. While in America, Paulet will attend the Dallas Comic Con and Comicpalooza in Houston. He hopes the rise in popularity that comic books have experienced over the past three years will encourage people to invest in his work. “Comic books are very mainstream now, whereas they used to be a niche market. “I go to conventions in Australia and New Zealand which get 20,000 to 60,000 people turning up.” \ LL

property prices surge
House prices in Wyndham rose by an average of $20,000 in the December quarter last year, but the city remains one of Melbourne’s most affordable municipalities. Latest figures from the Real Estate Institute of Victoria, based on sales between October and December, reveal average house prices in Wyndham ranged from $336,000 in Wyndham Vale to $425,000 in Point Cook. The median metropolitan house price was $643,000. Hoppers Crossing recorded the highest growth in Wyndham, with prices rising 11 per cent from $328,500 in September to $363,500 in December. Point Cook was the only suburb to record a decline in average prices, falling 3 per cent from $437,786. Ruby Sweeney, of Tarneit’s Sweeney Estate Agents, said she expected Wyndham would remain affordable. Emily Huang has lived in Point Cook for two years and recently bought a house in Williams Landing. She said affordability played a large part in her decision to stay in Wyndham, despite the city lacking the infrastructure of many eastern suburbs. “There’s potential for growth here. We can see the work being done to improve infrastructure and the amenity of the area.” Ms Sweeney said most prospective homebuyers understood they were making a long-term investment. “They have done their research and they know when train stations and shopping centres are coming.” \ LAURA LITTLE

ompletely ignoring everything our PM has to say on the topic, you probably have some understanding of the environmental damage we humans are doing to our planet. I’ve always thought it’s up to each of us individually to do one little thing every day to help slow the process of climate change. Something as simple as putting out the recycling, using cloth bags at the supermarket or chucking food scraps in a compost bin. On a larger scale, installing a water tank and solar panels. All these ideas are featured in the Sustainable Living Festival, happening over the next few weeks in Melbourne, with an array of art displays, tours, talks and interactive activities, films and forums. Locally, Wyndham council’s sustainability people have organised a great program of events and information. Worm farming, keeping chooks in the backyard, a tour of the Western Treatment Plant, and information on heritage fruit trees are all on the agenda. My own personal contribution is a short tour of our property in Little River. Our family home is fully powered by 30 solar panels and a 12-cell battery bank. We have no grid connection at all, which means we never pay an electricity bill, and I love it when energy companies ring me up and offer a better deal. Sustainability is a topic close to my heart, although I’m sure some of you out there are yawning into your non-biodegradable coffee cup. My point is that just one sustainable action a day is all it takes to help our planet. And even Tony Abbott has to agree that’s a good thing. \ EMMA SUTCLIFFE Emma Sutcliffe is a freelance writer on Facebook at ‘‘Little River Emma’’. » slf.org.au and wyndham.vic.gov.au

If there’s insufficient jobs in the Wyndham area, then why is it naively assumed that any vacant land represents potential subdivisions for housing? The problem is not a housing or infrastructure shortage, but excessive population growth. It’s not due to big families but high rates of economic immigration. With little other economic activity in Victoria, except housing, the next generation will inherit a big infrastructure debt and little to build our economy on to pay the debt. We need to see beyond the housing/construction one-trick-pony to some real innovation and initiative to create a working and productive economy.

I know I’m a little daft sometimes, but I keep getting confused on the West Gate Freeway by what I reckon is misleading signage. I keep missing the Bolte Bridge exit when coming from South Melbourne or the Domain Tunnel and then have to cross the bridge and come back. As far as I’m concerned, signs pointing to the Todd Road and CityLink/Airport don’t make it clear they’re via the same exit. The problem is an arrow over the left lane that points to the West Gate Bridge, which makes you think it’s a lane to the Bolte Bridge after Todd Road. Damn thing gets me every time. I thought it was only me until I heard a colleague far wiser than myself admitting he fell for the same trap. So is it just us? Or has anyone else been confused by that or other signs on the West Gate Freeway/CityLink maze? \ DAVID BONNICI \ EDITOR

pokies losses fuel bet-limit campaign
outer zones seek inside running
Problem gamblers are estimated to have lost $30 million on Wyndham’s poker machines last financial year, prompting calls for $1 bet limits to be introduced in Victorian gaming venues. The Greens are using the latest data from the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation to support their plan to introduce legislation to have betting limits placed on poker machines. As reported by the Weekly, gamblers lost almost $250,000 a day on Wyndham’s pokies in 2013. Most money was lost at the Werribee Plaza Tavern, with gamblers giving up $18 million at the venue in the 12 months. Western Metropolitan Greens MP Colleen Hartland said the party’s proposed bill would make a huge difference to families suffering from the detrimental impacts of problem gambling. “Currently, problem gamblers can lose thousands of dollars an hour on pokies,” she said. “ A $1 bet limit would limit losses to $120 per hour. “A $1 limit on bets is the cheapest, most effective and most straightforward option for limiting the losses of problem gamblers.”
Last year, Monash University researcher Dr Charles Livingstone called for $1 limits to be introduced in outer-suburban areas, where gambling losses are among the highest in the state. But Clubs Victoria executive director Richard Evans said betting limits would not prevent problem gambling. “Firstly, address problem gambling as
a health issue. It’s not about the amount [of money being gambled] – it’s about the amount of time a person will stay. ‘‘Problem gamblers will stay longer until they get the same result. “This is a false policy and does not address the issue of problem gamblers ... the problem lies with the person.” \ LAURA LITTLE
A lobby group for Australia’s growth areas is urging the federal government to focus on infrastructure and transport for the areas in its 2014-15 budget. The National Growth Areas Association said new approaches were needed to finance much-needed infrastructure in booming areas. Group president Paul Pisasale, mayor of Queensland’s Ipswich council, argued that growth areas, such as Wyndham, presented tremendous opportunities. “The availability of affordable land, an existing industry base and a relatively young population in outer-suburban growth areas provide real opportunities to boost productivity and improve people’s quality of life,” he said. “We want to work with the government to unlock this amazing potential and open the door to new and emerging industries and jobs of the future.” Cr Pisasale said priorities for outer-suburban growth areas included transport to boost business and jobs, industry development incentives and support and infrastructure for “learning and employment pathways”. \ SH

multifaith blessing for clinic’s move
woman charged over crime spree
Operators of a mental health clinic that moved from Footscray Mall to Nicholson Street Mall say its new site will make it easier for people to access mental health treatment. Mercy Mental Health’s Saltwater Clinic last week was blessed in a multifaith ceremony. Director Mario Blandin de Chalain said the new Nicholson Street building site was safer for clients to access. “Our program tends to see people with more serious mental health issues ... we tend to see people with schizophrenia, bipolar, affective disorder, serious depression and the like.” The site was blessed by indigenous Australian, Hindu, Muslim and Catholic groups to symbolise cultural diversity in the west. A welcome to country ceremony by Wurundjeri elder Aunty Diane Kerr was followed by a Hindu blessing by Mercy psychiatriasts and an Islamic ceremony by Mohamadu Nawas Saleem of the Australian National Imams Council. The clinic has been named after the former European name for the Maribyrnong River. \ GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK

A Werribee woman has been remanded in custody until next month after being charged with more than 100 offences following an alleged crime spree across the western suburbs. Bronwyn Holland, 25, has been charged with 128 offences including robbery, theft of motor vehicle, theft from motor vehicle, and dangerous driving. Police have not revealed when the offences took place. Ms Holland was scheduled to face Sunshine Magistrates Court on Monday, but did not appear for the short hearing. Her lawyer asked for the case to be adjourned until March 4 and did not make an application for Ms Holland to be released on bail. The court heard that Ms Holland was withdrawing from drugs. She was arrested by police at a house in Werribee on Sunday. Police say the offences took place in Werribee, Hoppers Crossing, Altona Meadows, Caroline Springs, Rockbank, Taylors Lakes, Laverton North and Altona North. \ LAURA LITTLE
sometimes it’s best not to soldier on, says war vet As an officer in the Australian army, Anthony Krupa was living his dream. He spent his days serving his country and helping make a difference in communities around the world. But one day, he hit rock bottom. On August 9, 2012, Krupa had a mental breakdown. Eighteen years of placing himself in life-threatening situations had finally caught up with him. On the recommendation of army doctors, Krupa spent almost two months in the Austin Repatriation Hospital in Heidelberg West. He was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety and panic attacks. “I had bottled it up all my life,” Krupa says. “I would be driving along, looking in the rear-vision mirror, going under bridges looking to see if there was anyone waiting on higher ground, taking aim. ‘‘I’d be in shopping centres, being very careful where I would walk, with my back to the wall. I was having nightmares at night, waking up and thinking I was back there. “I went from being a very strong, very fit, very determined person to having nothing.” Krupa joined the Royal Military College at
18, graduating as a lieutenant at 20. He served on 11 operations, travelling to Bougainville, East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan. Despite being a logistics officer, Krupa was involved in a fair bit of combat. Over the years he injured various parts of his body, including his back, shoulder and wrist. But Krupa says
the psychological injuries were the worst. “Of the 40 soldiers killed in action throughout Afghanistan, I was there four times. “One time I was very close to the action in Tarin Kowt. Other times I was in charge of the repatriation.” Krupa was medically discharged from
the army and left to rebuild his life at age 36. He was made aware of the Soldier On Foundation, an organisation set up as an alternative to the RSL to help younger veterans cope with the experiences of war. The foundation helped him through “a really hard time”, giving him the opportunity to share his story with St Kilda Football Club players and to travel to Canada to spend a weekend with wounded soldiers from Canada, America, Britain and Australia. The organisation also put him in touch with the Wyndham Future Leaders Program, through which 18 high school students are raising money for the community and training to walk the Kokoda Track in April. Krupa is mentoring the students, advising them on the physical and mental challenges they will encounter on the trek. To help them out, and give back to Soldier On, Krupa is organising a gala night in Point Cook on March 15. The event at The Brook on Sneydes will include performances from the Royal Australian Air Force jazz band and comedian Lehmo, plus silent auctions. Tickets cost $150 and include a three-course meal and drinks. \ LAURA LITTLE » facebook.com/soldierongala

The wetlands used to be called Werribee Swamp and went from Geelong almost to Melbourne, but it’s nearly all gone now. I worked with the council’s neighbourhood renewal program to help revive the area. People can get involved in the Friends of Glen Orden Wetlands by attending Clean Up Australia Day on March 2. I’m also hoping to get a ‘junior friends’ group started. I’m a member of Werribee Ladies Probus Club and vice-president and public relations person for the Wyndham Park Community Centre. I’ve also been volunteering with Williamstown Theatre for 43 years.
What do you remember being in Werribee that’s no longer there? When I used to go to Werribee Plaza, everyone there would talk to you. But it’s changed, and I miss that. Most embarrassing moment when out and about? I was asked to find a pair of fur-lined handcuffs for Williamstown Theatre and I went to the local hardware
store to get them. I explained what I was after and why and they thought I was making it up and buying them for myself. As I was leaving I turned around and all the staff were looking at me. My conversation about the handcuffs must have spread! \

Trail of destruction: A damaged car is towed away. (WAYNE HAWKINS)
cars, pumps struck at servo CRIME
A worker at an Altona Meadows petrol station says it’s lucky no one was killed after police and customers’ cars were struck by another car on Friday. A Victoria Police spokeswoman said officers had tried to intercept a car about 11am at the service station at the corner of Queen and Merton streets. Service station worker Jag Jawanda said two customers’ cars were struck as they were being filled with petrol. He said two bowsers were “totally gone” after a vehicle crashed into them, just metres from where a tanker was unloading petrol. “This guy was using pump number nine and then two police cars rocked up. They blocked him. When he saw
the police, he accelerated. Then he hit the front car, but he couldn’t go anywhere ... and then he smashed into pump number 10. “I think the wife of the customer at pump 10 was sitting in the car. The customer was filling and the car just got all twisted.’’ Mr Jawanda said bowser number seven was also hit before the driver got away. A police station wagon had minor damage, while the second had damage from being sideswiped. A Tarneit boy, 16, has been charged with conduct endangering life, conduct endangering person, and car theft. He was remanded to appear at a children’s court at a later date. A Point Cook boy, 15, has been charged with car theft and was bailed. \ GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK

BRIEFS boating pair rescued A man and his dog have been rescued after they became stranded in their boat near Point Cook on Monday. The Portarlington man, 43, and his three-legged dog were stranded at sea after setting off in a fibreglass boat from Portarlington earlier in the day. Police launched an air and sea search about 5pm after receiving reports the boat had not returned to shore. The man and his dog were located by the air wing about 6.20pm. The man was not wearing a lifejacket. The water police’s Leading Senior Constable Mark Hurwood said police urged all boat users to always wear an approved lifejacket. “This is required by law for vessels 4.8 metres and under, when people are alone or at night.” \
David Kennedy might drive a knock-about four-wheel-drive on weekdays, but come the weekend he slides into the seat of a luxury sports car. The 49-year-old, who is single, says he couldn’t afford a family because of his “man toys”– two Chevrolet Corvettes. The Hoppers Crossing man’s pride and joy is a 2012 model valued at about $140,000. It took $50,000 to convert it from left to right-hand drive. Kennedy works at a Sunshine West shop that converts the cars over seven weeks. He had the limited-edition 2012 model converted to commemorate Chevrolet’s 100th anniversary. “It’s the love of my life, and when I take it out for weekend cruising people are impressed.” Kennedy recently showed the car at the inaugural Warrnambool Corvette Owners Show. \ SH

His car was impounded and he’s expected to be charged on summons with traffic offences. \
men arrested over assault Two Werribee men, both 19, have been arrested after allegedly assaulting a man and his girlfriend in the early hours of January 25. Police allege that the men attacked a man, 19, and a woman, 19, at 12.05am near a bus terminal outside Werribee Plaza. The couple had been walking home from a night out. Detective Senior Sergeant John Johnston said the men allegedly drove past the couple before getting out and assaulting them. The man suffered severe bruising to his body and was left with cuts to his head and body. The woman suffered bruising. \ fun day to help alex A fund-raiser will be held at Altona Lacrosse Club on Sunday to raise money for Wyndham Vale’s Alex Miller. In October, Alex, 4, was diagnosed with a rare and incurable brain tumour in the middle of the brain stem, which affects only children.

giving’s in the game plan Playing football is just a part of what the Western Bulldogs do, writes Tara murray
e pride ourselves on being known as the community club of the AFL,” says Western Bulldogs community engagement manager Kiemi Lai. Lai, along with players and staff, is preparing for the club’s community camp in Melton and Bacchus Marsh this week. While all AFL clubs take part in community camps around Australia, for the Bulldogs the camps continue the work they’re already doing. “We did request Melton as our camp’s location as it was part of our blitz of getting into the community last year and we wanted to continue that work,” Lai says. “In Melton we’ve been working on building the ‘friendly schools’ program, a relationship with the Western Region Football League and involvement with Auskick clinics.” The camp represents only a small part of the Bulldogs’ community work in Melbourne’s western suburbs. The club works in five regions – Melton, Wyndham, Brimbank, Maribyrnong and Hobsons Bay – and has connections with Sunbury and Bacchus Marsh as well. “The club has a very broad program which is split into three different groups,” says Lai. “We have three pillars in our community work: the ‘Fresh’, disability training and community training programs.” Lai says she’s not sure whether there’s any other sporting club that runs a community education service like Fresh, which has “nothing to do with football”. “It’s a Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) program and we have our own classrooms set up with teachers and staff,” she says of the program which allows young people who have had problems with mainstream education to complete senior secondary qualifications. “It provides a pathway to continue education in a very unique way.” The club’s disability program, on the other hand, focuses on using football as a medium to keep people engaged. “We were writing various training programs when we entered into a partnership with Victoria University,” Lai says.
“The Total Footy program, which is part of this, sees the multiple programs. “When I started in 2006 we were doing a participants come to Whitten Oval and do a whole term of lot of programs and were driving the demand. footy learning.

Wyndham Rotary president Sue Campbell wants the club to be known for more than sausage sizzles – although these fund-raisers allow the group to help people living in poverty overseas. Barbecues and other activities raised $6500 to buy cows, pigs, water purifiers, bicycles, school supplies and uniforms for impoverished schools, an orphanage and a village in Cambodia. Mrs Campbell, four other local Rotarians and 11 supporters took the money on a
recent trip to Cambodia, spending the funds there to boost the local economy. “People are so poor there, we just don’t understand it until we see it,” she said. “In Siem Reap, we visited a blind and deaf school where Rotary had purchased a Braille typing machine and they were so grateful.” Mrs Campbell said they donated skipping ropes to the Pagoda school in Siem Reap and Rotarians constructed bio-sand-water filters and wells where villagers had no fresh water. “The children don’t speak much English; but I don’t speak Cambodian. Still, you could tell they appreciated everything.” \ SH 10005374-01-5Feb©MMP

Profile \ noel ryan is dedicated to ‘dishlickers’, WRITES SUE HEWITT
t may not be the sport of kings, but Werribee’s Noel Ryan is proud to have been crowned the greyhound coursing industry’s volunteer of the year. Ryan says while horse racing is for royalty, the “dishlickers” are for common folk like himself. “Anyone can own a greyhound; they’re lovely, placid dogs and reasonably cheap,” he says. The 77-year-old took over as president of the Werribee Greyhound Coursing Club 33 years ago and didn’t retire until September last year. Ryan was recently awarded the National Coursing Association’s Noel Banks Medal for continuous and outstanding volunteer service. Greyhound coursing involves racing two dogs over a 400-metre straight track and complements speed racing of eight dogs around a circular track. But the confusion has caused problems for the local coursing club’s goal of securing a new track in Werribee. “People think we need a huge track, but we only need a narrow grass track 400 metres long,” says Ryan, who helped secure the club’s original track at Werribee racecourse in 1982. That track closed in 2009 to make way for the International Race Horse Quarantine Centre. The club is still searching for an alternative venue, with members forced to travel to coursing tracks in Melton and Ballarat. In coursing or racing over a straight track, Ryan says “you do it for the trophies, not the money”. But these events train the dog for the money-making speed racing, and he admits to a few winners. Ryan and local club secretary John Barsby, who nominated Ryan for the award, raced Wyndham Whiz in speed races, collecting more than $60,000 in prizemoney, including $10,000 for the 2006 AWM

New homes & land
he opportunity for first-home buyers to purchase a new house for less than the price of an older one that needs work, or only slightly more than a rental property, has arrived. Developer ISPT has joined forces with builder Nostra Homes to provide a house and land package, named Otto, in the Forsyth Park community in Truganina and priced from $293,900. And that’s for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, single-garage house. The Otto designs are available in single or double-storey houses with up to four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a double garage. These packages include window furnishings, floor coverings, Blanco appliances, concrete
driveways and front and back landscaping. “For many families in the rental market there is a certain perception that owning their own home would represent a complete overhaul of their household budget and lifestyle,” Oliver Hume Real Estate Group project director Gerrard Ellis said. “However, with the recent introduction of affordable house and land packages such as the Otto homes at Forsyth Park, this perception is turning around.” Mr Ellis said paying a 10 per cent deposit of $29,390 and assuming the remaining funds are borrowed on a variable interest rate of 5.2 per cent, families can purchase one of the Otto house designs with a home loan which
equates to repayments of less than $340 a week, excluding council and water rates and stamp duty. The Otto houses are near proposed childcare and medical centres and a $1million park, which are due for completion this year. “Families not only enjoy their first home but they can rest assured they’re setting down roots in a premium location. “For many residents of the western suburbs there has never been a better time to enter the property market, so we are excited to deliver a product at such an affordable price.” For more information on buying a property and living at Forsyth Park, call the sales team, drop into the office or visit the website. \

n 1850 an intrepid young Scott named William Chambers set off up the Murray River from Adelaide in search of his future. He found it some 2000 kilometres upstream on the banks of the serene Lake Moodemere, where he built a homestead among the towering river red gums and planted some grape vines nearby. Those vines, and many, many more planted by those who followed, kick-started an industry that would survive

Vineyards, where William Chambers’ great, great, great grandson Michael and his wife Belinda greet visitors at their charming cellar door inside the family’s original 1850s homestead. They’ll happily regale you with tales of the region’s colourful past as you sample their fine wines – the unwooded chardonnay is a standout – or perhaps linger for a tantalising antipasto platter served under the red gums by the lake. There’s history, too, at Chambers Rosewood Winery just taste for Rutherglen down the road, where Michael’s cousin Stepen Chambers mans a delightfully rustic operation on one of the family’s original 1850s vineyards. Chambers’ no-fuss, perhaps self-serve approach and stellar muscats and tokays – lauded by American wine guru Robert Parker as linger for an antipasto “some of the world’s most remarkable dessert wines” – saw his cellar door named Australia’s best by platter Gourmet Traveller in 2012. The Chambers clan does not have a monopoly on history. At Campbells’ stylish cellar door, fifth-generation winemaker Colin and his daughters Jane and Susie will greet you with a taste of their renowned Bobbie Burns Shiraz, named for the vineyard established by John Campbell in 1870. And at Jones Winery & Vineyard, winemakers brother and sister Arthur and Mandy Jones make their acclaimed wines using traditional techniques with no irrigation or crushing, just as their family has done for almost 90 years. The winery’s atmospheric and reasonably priced French café is a nod to Mandy’s 14 years working on the Bordeaux vineyards. By comparison, Chris Pfeiffer is a relative newcomer, having established his Pfeiffer Wines in the old Seppelt’s distillery CAMPBELLS WINES on the banks of Sunday Creek just 30 years ago. Still he is a great raconteur on the region’s more recent history, including economic booms and busts, a gold rush, and the devastation of the development of topaque (muscadelle) and apera (sherry), phylloxera, to put the town of Rutherglen on the international marks in which he has played a leading role.

Chef Gavin Swalwell and wife Fi Myers open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on the weekends (lunch and dinner only, Wednesday to Friday). So you might start the day with good coffee and Persian feta, caramelised onions, spinach and slow-roasted tomatoes on toast, linger over a lunch of risotto with exotic mushrooms, and stay on until dinner for the slipper lobster roasted in garlic and chilli butter, which has achieved cult status since Tastes opened 18 months ago.

Fine dining and gloriously bucolic surrounds combine to make this one of Victoria’s most acclaimed regional eateries.

You can see why, with dishes such as grilled cuttlefish with house-made merguez sausage and tokay crème caramel. Impeccable service and views complete the package.
Old-world charm meets modern comfort at this former Bank of Australasia (circa 1899) transformed into a B&B. Two spacious guest rooms are resplendent in Victorian flourishes and boast king-size beds, open fireplaces, TV and en suite complete with spa baths.

Come mid-March, the normally sleepy streets of Rutherglen will become a thriving hub as thousands of food and wine lovers converge for the annual Tastes of Rutherglen festival. Over two consecutive weekends, 19 participating wineries will showcase the best the region has to offer, with tastings of matched food and wines, special dinners, masterclasses, talks, entertainment and activities for the whole family. Buy tickets online or at any of the participating wineries and redeem them for a glass of wine and a matching entrée at any of the venues, or for one of the myriad activities. For those who don’t fancy driving, there’s a choice of four shuttle bus routes touring the region. Hop on and off at will to sample the likes of spiced pork belly matched with a glass of 2012 viognier at Campbells, or perhaps a tasting plate of decadent desserts and a glass of late-harvest muscadelle at Pffeiffer Wines. Join a cooking class with chef Simon Arkless at All Saints Estate or a Wine Sensory Lab at St Leonards, and finish off at Lake Moodemere Vineyards with tastings of Chambers fortifieds, led by local legend, Bill Chambers. There’s also live music at most venues.

While our Valentine’s Day may not be spent in such lofty company, we do have a chance to make our ‘significant other’ feel important and cherished.
Open Mon to Fri 11.30am until late, Sat & Sun open from 8am until late
Flowers, jewellery and a romantic dinner always go down a treat but there are other forms of giving that require thought and effort and will lay down wonderful shared memories. Here are some ideas:
Valentines Day @ d’Olive
• Hide a note in his/her wallet for them to find during the day telling of your affection and commitment: a guaranteed “Aw shucks” moment. • Secretly light candles throughout the house and explain that each flame represents the love you feel. Corny? Yes. Romantic? Yes. Forgettable? No. • Watch a DVD together, but one you would normally never choose but know they would like: that’s lerve! However you choose to shoot Cupid’s arrow, remember it’s not about their response; it’s about the shared journey. /CAROLE LEVY

taly is the hot mover in the car industry right now. Fiat’s 2013 sales were up by 7½ times 2012’s figures (3854 against 513), and Alfa Romeo’s more than doubled (2373 against 906). The reason is that their Australian distribution was taken in-house and prices have been slashed, in some cases by more than a third. The rumour is the Australians were told by the Italians that if they it’s aimed wanted factory help in achieving at an their red-hot pricing on the cute uber-niche little Fiat 500 and the Alfa Giulietta, market they’d have to take a couple of additional models they maybe wouldn’t normally consider.

Cricket Trent Lawford’s meteoric rise from club cricketer at Wyndhamvale to state all-rounder with South Australia has been well documented. Lawford was on board with the Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League and made his first-class debut with the Redbacks in the Sheffield Shield. The 25-year-old was back playing grade cricket for Adelaide against Southern District in the SACA competition on Saturday. He hit a scintillating 265 off 187 balls, including 28 sixes. \

Werribee’s solution for one of its under-performing rinks may have created an unwanted knock-on effect in Bowls Victoria’s division 1. The reshaped Bees returned from Elsternwick Club on the back of a 73-64 loss. Rob Panton’s rink, the out-of-form quartet that had new blood injected into it, turned its form around to finish with a team-best plus-11. But Panton’s prospering came at the expense of Mick O’Neil’s usually strongperforming rink going -12 down. Only time will tell if the changes will be better in the long run or if it was a matter of shifting the problem elsewhere. The Bees are third on the ladder but can swoop on a top two-finish with three consecutive wins to round out the season. Steve Clancy has won the club singles championship with a win over Eddie Williamson in the final. Clancy arrived at the Bees three years ago from Richmond Union and has been a regular in the top side. \ LJ

Hoppers Crossing’s brittle top-order batting reared its ugly head again in a 113-run drubbing from South Caulfield in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association senior division at Hogans Road Reserve on Saturday. The Cats could muster only 138 in their search of the visitors’ 251 and their finals hopes are seemingly extinguished. Cats president Steve McNamara said batting issues had ruined his club’s season. “Our batting has been reasonably fragile all year,” he said. “We’ve quite often been two for very few and it puts a lot of “it puts pressure on the middle order.

POINT COOK FOOTBALL CLUB
Point Cook has strengthened its home semi-final bid with a thrilling outright win over the ambitious Newport-Digman Bulls in Victorian Turf Cricket Association west B1 at Bryan Martyn Oval on Saturday. The Bulls were eager to close the gap on the top four, so instead of letting the game peter out to a predictable conclusion, they spiced it up with a declaration on the second day – and that opened the door for the Warriors to claim maximum points. A challenging fourth innings run chase ensued for the Warriors, who had been out of touch with the bat. But they forgot about their recent woes to arrive at the 144 target in 40 busy overs with three wickets in hand. “We had to try and win outright to stay in touch with the finals and did the right thing in declaring,” Warriors captain Travis Bean said. “It sort of opened the door for us to get an outright, but we still had to bat well to make those runs in 40 overs.” The Warriors’ best win in the longer format for the summer keeps them in a good position two games out from the finals. They have a sizeable 16-point lead on third-placed Sunshine United, but jostling for the minor premiership with Sunshine Heights, just five points behind the Warriors, will continue. “We needed to win outright to continue to stay ahead of the rest of the pack because it’s pretty close in our division,” Bean said. “It’s a big advantage to have a home semi-final.” Stephen Luedi’s 44 was the key to the Warriors’ successful run chase. Important contributions came from newly promoted Chris Kavanagh (21), Bean (17), Matthew Kelton and Bryce Munce (both 16). While the Warrior batsmen found some form, it was fast bowler Troy Semmens who ripped the game apart with nine wickets. Semmens has taken a competition-best 41 wickets at 6.8. “He’s having an unbelievable year,” Bean said. “He’s just hitting his lines He bowled quite a long spell ... for three-quarters of his spell we had a 9-1 field. They only scored probably three or four runs on the leg side where there was only one fielder. “It shows you how good he is bowling and how accurately.” The Warriors can lock up a home semi-final with a win over Barkly Street United on the road in a two-dayer starting on Saturday. \ LANCE JENKINSON FEBRUARY 5, 2014 \ WYNDHAM WEEKLY 35
