race highlights commuters’ daily battle
Fifteen residents will brave morning peak traffic next month to draw attention to their daily struggle to access Melbourne’s CBD from Wyndham by car, train, bus and bicycle. The residents will set off from Manor Lakes, Point Cook and Truganina at 7.30am on April 2, racing each other to Federation Square as part of the council’s Race to the City. Among those taking part is Point Cook’s Leone Brunato, who will cycle to highlight the lack of continuous bicycle tracks between Wyndham and Melbourne. Councillors Marie Brittan and Peter Maynard have also signed on. Mayor Bob Fairclough hopes the race will highlight the limited travel options available to Wyndham residents. “There is only one major road route [into the city], which is often congested, a train line which is the second-most-overcrowded on the metropolitan network, and five of our six bus routes in Wyndham don’t run past 9pm on weeknights,’’ he said. ‘‘Our cyclists also lack a safe, fast and continuous route. “Every peak hour, thousands of our residents face the stress of racing to work by train, bike or car and spending valuable time away from their family.” The race is part of the council’s Get Wyndham Moving campaign, which will be launched at the civic centre this Thursday night. The campaign urges the state government to provide more funding to improve roads and public transport in Wyndham. The council has a ‘‘road solutions’’ wishlist, including state and federal funding for arterial road duplications, construction of the western end of the east-west link, the removal of level crossings, and more buses and trains. Cr Fairclough said governments needed to boost funding before things got worse. \ LAURA LITTLE » getwyndhammoving.com.au HAVE YOUR SAY

yndham council is seeking suggestions about how to solve our ongoing traffic problems as it prepares to host a community forum. I’ll leave that discussion to wiser heads than mine. But I thought it an opportune time to mention my newly discovered way to cope with our stressful traffic issues. It comes in the form of a CD containing lots of favourites from my bogan teenage years. Turned up just enough to cover my pitch-imperfect singing voice, No Lies by Noiseworks is my song of choice for navigating the busy right-turn lane into Forsyth Road. But it’s the Baby Animals belting out One Word that gets me through the disappointment of getting stopped at every single red light down Derrimut Road. I can almost picture Rose Tattoo singer Angry Anderson’s bald pate as he growls the words to Rock ’n’ Roll Outlaw, a song perfect for Leakes Road which, let’s face it, resembles a car park most mornings. And you can’t help but forget your traffic woes when legendary Cold Chisel frontman Jimmy Barnes shouts the story of the Vietnam veteran in Khe Sanh, although I reckon it’s taken me the best part of 20 years to learn all the words. I recommend you try your own over-enthusiastic, karaoke-style warbling with added finger tapping and a dash of air guitar while stopped at the lights. You’ll be at your destination before you can say “I’m an 80s Aussie rock tragic”. Perhaps not the type of feedback the council is looking for with its Get Wyndham Moving campaign. But every little bit helps, right? The forum is at the civic centre this Thursday.

valuables in cars an easy target Wyndham residents are being reminded not to leave valuable items in their car, following a spate of thefts. Leading Senior Constable Craig McDonald said it took thieves less than 20 seconds to smash a car window and grab an item. \
Wyndham residents are being urged to get vaccinated against influenza amid predictions that this year’s flu season will be the most dangerous on record. The warning by the Influenza Specialist Group comes as new Health Department statistics reveal Wyndham recorded a 71 per cent increase in flu cases last year, with 163 cases reported to the department. In 2012, 95 cases were recorded. Ten Wyndham residents have already been diagnosed with the flu this year. Free vaccination is available for people aged 65 and over, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders aged 15 and over, pregnant women and anyone over six months with a medical condition that can lead to severe influenza. South Western Melbourne Medicare Local chief executive Gaylene Coulton (pictured right) urged all Wyndham people to visit their doctors. “Making sure you’re vaccinated for the upcoming flu season is vital in maintaining immunity to influenza,” she said. \ LAURA LITTLE » betterhealth.vic.gov.au

Of the many political contradictions that filter into the community, none are more galling than those surrounding asylum seekers. Like the notion that someone can be very concerned about asylum seekers’ safety at sea while happily leaving them to rot in internment camps with scant regard for their safety or mental well-being. Then there’s the opposition to spending millions on resettling asylum seekers while condoning billions spent on locking them up offshore. Locking up asylum seekers is a cruel smokescreen that makes people think their way of life is being protected, while taking the focus off threats under their noses, such as a push to tighten worker entitlements, including penalty rates. Meanwhile, while we prevented several thousand asylum seekers from making a life here, we happily allowed 126,000 people to come into Australia on 457 visas. \ DAVID BONNICI \ EDITOR

Point Cook midwifery student Lisa Pollard will spend two weeks in Vanuatu this July, but it will be no holiday. While many cruise ships dock in Port Vila, Ms Pollard will volunteer in a bush hospital in the village of Santo, where the things that Australians consider to be the basics are pure luxury. She is raising funds to get basic supplies for the Northern Provincial Hospital, rated as a secondary hospital after the main hospital in Port Vila. “People think of Vanuatu as a tourist spot, but where I’m going they need the basics,” Ms Pollard said. The final-year Australian Catholic University student said pregnant patients of the hospital had less medical help than in First World countries. Ms Pollard will also travel to treat people in outlying villages. She’s among six midwifery students hoping to raise $2000 to provide hospital supplies. \ SH » gofundme.com/7959p8

THREADS OF LIFE A lifesaving foundation was started when one man dared to hope, writes sarah harriS
mpish Wilson Jackman, 4, is among many who owe their lives to the slim umbilical thread of one man’s hope that he could save his son. Diagnosed with a particularly rare type of auto-immune deficiency at the age of 18 months, Wilson needed a bone marrow or stem cell transplant if he was to survive. With no match to be found among family members, all hopes rested with the Bone Marrow Donor Institute’s (BMDI) Cord Blood Bank. It was six agonising months – every day spent fearing the slightest germ could carry off the little boy – before the call came. In March last year, the Jackman family travelled from their central Victorian home to the Royal
Children’s Hospital for the transplant. A match had been found, but it was far from the end of their ordeal. After the transplant Wilson developed life-threatening complications. “There were times when I thought that Wilson might not make it,” his mum Angie confesses. “I will remember for the rest of my life how, every night, I would beg him to stay with me for just another 24 hours.” The family’s vigil at Wilson’s bedside was made possible by the Fight Cancer Foundation which – in addition to funding vital research into cancer treatments and education support for young patients – provides affordable accommodation close to

major treating hospitals. The development of this much-needed accommodation service is the latest chapter in a story that began 25 years ago. Robbie Lodder was eight when he became the catalyst for the formation of Australia’s first bone marrow registry from which the Fight Cancer Foundation grew. The plight of the charismatic, dark-eyed boy, who appeared on 60 Minutes, Today Tonight, A Current Affair, in New Idea and on the front page of Melbourne’s Sun News-Pictorial, touched Australians, who signed up to become donors by the tens of thousands. The highly public effort to save Robbie became pivotal to the formation not only of the registry but to the BMDI Cord Blood Bank established in his memory – both of which have given so many, like Wilson, a second chance at life. Today, reflecting on his son’s legacy, Ray Lodder will scarcely allow that he played his own part as a tireless fund-raiser and advocate. The gravel-voiced retired manufacturer still lives in Woodend, surrounded by the community which rallied round Robbie after his diagnosis. Robbie’s short life is celebrated in the Woodend’s Children Park with a walkway and lookout named in his honour. Standing in the park watching children play, Lodder smiles. “It’s a lovely way to be remembered.” He vividly recalls the shock when Robbie was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) in March, 1989. “Back then the only cure for a CML patient was a bone marrow transplant. So in my naivety, I said ‘Oh well, we better get him one of those then’. When I was told there was no bone marrow registry in Australia, I was most indignant.” Together with a handful of other Melbourne parents who had children with or lost to leukaemia, Lodder set about establishing the life-giving service. “I was going to turn heaven and earth over to find a cure for Rob,” he says. “Linda [Robbie’s mother] and I went around the world. We went to the Anthony Nolan Register in the UK, we went to specialists in Holland, we went to Seattle to one of the biggest and most successful hospitals for the treatment of leukaemia.” But no match on the fledgling Australian registry or those overseas could be found for Robbie. It was the world’s leading expert, Professor John Goldman, who pioneered bone-marrow transplantation for CML, who confirmed the worst after reviewing results of thousands of tests. “He said, ‘You know, you are not likely to get a match … he’s going to die’ – there weren’t any ifs about it. Then he said: ‘Have you ever considered having more children, because at least one in four siblings is going to be a match’.” The couple’s decision to have another child sparked controversy. “Some people publicly accused us of having babies for spare parts,” Lodder recalls. “It was really quite hurtful, but to some degree what was said touched a nerve because in a way – while we were happy to have another child and had never previously ruled the idea out – Matthew was born with some hope he could also save Robbie. “He wasn’t a match, sadly, but he is such a lovely, lovely boy and we were – and of course always will be – so very glad to have him.” In 1991, Robbie, aged 11, died from complications arising after a bone marrow transplant from his grandmother which was a close but not complete match. Lodder continued his work, driving his considerable energies to establishing, in 1996, the BMDI cord blood bank which is now part of the national AusCord network. Last year there were more than 2000 life-saving bone marrow, cord blood and peripheral stem cell transplants in Australia and New Zealand. But for Ray Lodder and his former wife Linda, it will forever be a story that began with one little boy. \ email@example.com MARCH 19, 2014 \ WYNDHAM WEEKLY 13
food for thought in truck campaign
wyndham leads in solar power switch
The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) yesterday launched a campaign to crowdfund $100,000 for a “food justice truck” delivering discounted food to people living on as little as $3 a day and prohibited from seeking work. The ASRC’s director of aid, Patrick Lawrence, said the truck would deliver food to people living on up to 89 per cent of Australia’s lowest dole payment and even some “getting nothing”. “There are 10,000 asylum seekers living in the community in Melbourne alone and none of them get the [full] Newstart allowance,” Mr Lawrence said. “Some of them get a percentage of Newstart, some of them get nothing, some of them have work rights, some of them don’t have work rights – and their food security situation is extremely dire.” He said the food justice truck would visit several locations in Melbourne’s west, selling fresh fruit and vegetables, whole foods, non-perishables and other healthy items. Mr Lawrence said food would be sold to the general public at market rates and to up to 2000 asylum seekers at a 75 per cent discount. “So that $10 or $20 that an asylum seeker might have will actually buy them $40-$80 worth of food,” he said.
“We can’t afford to just give food away to 2000 people so we’ve got this hybrid social-enterprise model. It will only have one paid full-time staff manager and 60 volunteers. ” He said other organisations and private individuals had lined up to help “right some of the wrongs” against asylum seekers. “[But] fundamentally, there’s only one institution that really can right the wrongs
and that’s the federal government – whichever federal government it might be at the time, that they finally decide that they’re going to change direction on this issue,” he said. The ASRC is returning to 214 Nicholson Street in Footscray – “the suburb of its birth” – and will run the truck from Maribyrnong. \ GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK » http://bit.ly/1d8t56p
More Wyndham residents are turning to solar energy, with the 3029 and 3030 postcodes leading the state in solar panel installations. A new report from the federal government’s Clean Energy Regulator shows that more households in Hoppers Crossing, Tarneit and Truganina have solar panels than anywhere else in Victoria. A total of 4268 solar panels were installed in the 3029 postcode in the year to February. In the same period, 3784 solar panels were installed in Werribee and Point Cook, while 1042 were added to houses in Wyndham Vale. Sustainable Energy Association chief adviser Ray Wills said more outer suburbs residents were installing solar panels because they were concerned about energy costs. “People who have installed solar panels for any reason do consider their energy use more closely,’’ Professor Wills said. ‘‘It makes economic sense to generate electricity from a solar panel.” \ LL

pet pooch a matter of principal Iramoo Primary School principal Moira Findlay can be forgiven for having a “teacher’s pet”. In fact, Farrow, a seeing eye dog in training, is everybody’s pet. Ms Findlay brings Farrow to school every day. The playful labrador pup lounges in the office during class times and then bounds out to have fun with pupils during breaks. “I love dogs but couldn’t commit to having one for years, but I could be a puppy carer for 12 months,” Ms Findlay says. “Farrow is in the [school] yard every day being exposed to noise, crowds, bikes and, of course, children.” Farrow’s experiences will help her join the ranks of trained seeing eye dogs. Ms Findlay will take the pup to Seeing Eye Dogs Australia’s open day at its new breeding and training facility in Kensington on March 22 from 11.30am-2pm.

New homes & land
Home buyers looking to live in an estate where there is plenty of recreational space, need look no further than Gateway in Truganina. Developed by Central Equity Land, the community has just opened Truganina Gardens, an 8000-square-metre park for residents of all ages. It has a playground, basketball court, walking-jogging path, large shelter with chairs and tables, and additional benches. The park was a significant asset for the new Gateway estate in Melbourne’s growing western suburbs, Central Equity Land marketing manager Jeremy Vile said, offering easy access to established shops, transport and recreational amenities. “At just 20 kilometres from the city centre, Gateway is the eastern-most estate in
Truganina and has good freeway access and proximity to Williams Landing train station,” Mr Vile said. “Gateway provides a great environment for growing families, with major employment hubs and schools such as Truganina South Primary School and Westbourne Grammar close by.” Nearby Lawrie Emmins Reserve has 80 hectares to explore, including an arts centre, archery facilities and cricket, softball and footy fields. “Gateway provides easy access to Federation Trail, Doherty’s Creek Reserve, Cheetham Wetlands and Point Cook Coastal Park,” Mr Vile said. “The estate is also home to an expansive nature conservation area that will help indigenous flora and fauna thrive.”
Werribee Mercy Hospital and medical centres at Wyndham Village, Laverton and Point Cook are nearby. House and land packages within the estate start from $310,000. Home buyers can check out the new display village, which is under construction but has many “just-completed” houses by Melbourne builders open for inspection. “Location and price make Gateway a great choice for buyers looking for real value,” Mr Vile said. “This estate is rapidly becoming the destination of choice for new-home buyers in the area.” For more information on Gateway in Truganina, contact the sales team or visit the estate website. \

Pablo Berger’s homage to the films of the 1920s had the great misfortune of arriving in the wake of The Artist – a far more accessible and comedic piece. But while it lacks the self-awareness of its Oscar-winning peer, Blancanieves has an endearing, sincere passion at its heart. Transplanting the Grimm Brothers’ Snow White into Franco’s Spain, Berger recaptures the darkness we remember from first reading those tales as children. This is a world of ghoulish acts and misshapen heroes, cast in the shadow of a dark sexuality. Our heroine Carmen is the daughter of a prize matador, struck down in his prime. Fleeing her deliciously evil and somewhat perverse stepmother (Maribel Verdú, best known for Y Tu Mamá También), she takes refuge with six bullfighting dwarves. On discovering a flair for her father’s sport, she is recruited by this diminutive troupe, but her new fame engenders resentments. Relying on clever, beautiful compositions, Blancanieves reminds the viewer how dialogue can distract from the magic of cinema. As with authentic films of its borrowed era, there is a sense here of peering through its grey glass into an enchanting, lost world. Stripped of the irony we’ve come to expect from modern retreads of fairytales, this is a joyous, wondrous and sensuous movie. \

Literary lowdown and there is a magic that happens when we get together,’’ Hackett explains. Through the book’s many outstanding images, thoughtful essays and extended photo captions, readers are presented with Clements’ artistic interpretation of what underwrites a healthy male culture. This month we celebrate the work of another talented British photographer, Martin Parr. The Non-Conformists ($49.95, Aperture) features Parr’s early work, taken 33 years ago around the Yorkshire mill town of Hebden Bridge, and captures many of the rituals of community life that have since vanished, or are swiftly disappearing. Hebden Bridge presented Parr and writer Susie Mitchell (who later became his wife) with rich material. As Mitchell explains in her introduction: “Beneath the traditions ran deep roots: people who had been neighbours and workmates for decades, long-standing communities, places that had been farmed by the same families for generations … this sense of connectedness was, to me, as exotic and alluring as life in the rainy city.’’ The Non-Conformists is the first time their work from this period has appeared in a book format. We are delighted to have it on our shelves. Its images and words reveal aspects of English village life that may have been lost forever if Mitchell and Parr had not infiltrated the Hebden Bridge community. If we needed a reminder why photography books are so vital to our visual culture, these two outstanding publications certainly provide it. \ firstname.lastname@example.org

With Hollywood celebrities, including Madonna and George Clooney, getting hot and sweaty with Bikram Yoga, certified Bikram Yoga instructor Shaan Lim says now’s the time for Wyndham residents to get in on it, too. And Lim’s business, Bikram Yoga, is sure to heat things up for participants. “I have more than nine years’ yoga experience and teach students a unique series of 26 postures (asanas) and two breathing techniques (pranayamas) in a room heated to about 39 degrees,” Lim says. “All our classes are beginner-friendly and suitable for anyone looking to start hatha yoga.” Lim says people are never too young, old or sick to do yoga and it’s never too late to start. “Our instructors focus on trying to help everyone achieve their optimal health and self-empowerment.” Lin has extended her business reach, opening another studio in Yarraville in May, 2013. It’s proving just as popular as her Werribee venture.

Fun-city for locals Keeping the kids entertained during school holidays can be a challenge, but with Wyncity Bowl and Entertainment now in Point Cook – after 28 years in Werribee – families are set to have the best holidays yet. “We provide a complete family entertainment centre to the local community – no matter what age, gender or ability,” director Edi De Pellegrin says. “We really do have something for everyone at Wyncity.” The family-run business starting out solely as a ten-pin bowling alley in the mid-80s but has expanded to include laser tag, bumper cars, mini-golf, arcade games and more. “During our time in business we’ve had many of our professional bowlers compete at local, state, national and international competitions. “We also have state-of-the-art technology here, including bowling with social connectivity – the first in Australia!” And the entertainment centre has its own licensed restaurant with all the family favourites on the menu, including wood-fired pizza, burgers and pasta. Owned by George and Bianca Scolaro until 2000, the business has since been operated by their four daughters who have continued the tradition of providing a great family entertainment venue to the Wyndham community. “We’re proud to provide affordable indoor entertainment and dining under the one roof.” Wyncity Bowl and Entertainment, at 36 Wallace Avenue Point Cook, opens 10am-11pm Monday- Friday; 9am-midnight Saturday; and 9am-11pm Sunday.

Money \ CHRIS TOLHURST tackles the school fee colossus
y parents educated their three sons at one of Melbourne’s pricier private schools in the 1970s. The all-up cost back then? About $8000 a year, including a hefty discount on fees for the third child. The “family discount” for volume enrolments still applies at my alma mater but today you need to find $23,976 to put a 12-year-old through year 7 – books, uniforms and extras not included. The fee for a student in years 11 or 12 is $25,760. In fact, a recent survey by the Australian Scholarships Group found that parents of a child born this year who choose private education can expect to spend $504,742 in metropolitan Melbourne from preschool to year 12. Rises in education costs are relentless. They outstrip inflation and salaries growth, and then there’s the prospect of large HECS fees afterwards. The only way to take the sting out of these charges is to plan and save.
$100 a month, it will compound until the child is ready to start school. Even if you educate your kids at government schools, the cost of a prep-to-year-12 public education is expected to reach $65,500 by 2030. The saving strategy you choose will be shaped by your income and marginal tax rates, what you can afford to put aside, how long before you need the money, your saving discipline, and appetite for risk.
NEVER TOO LATE
The latest evidence indicates that about 60 per cent of Australian families make no provision for education costs. Of those who do, most don’t save all the money needed. Yet regularly setting aside even small amounts can make a significant difference. If you put aside just
EDUCATION SAVINGS PLANS
FIND A STRATEGY
(istock \ thinkstock)
There are several ways to structure education savings. A tax-neutral strategy is to make extra payments on your home loan, build a nest egg and draw on it when the bills start arriving. If you’re on high marginal tax rates, you may be better off with the tax-paid options of investment bonds or special education savings plans, where the issuer pays tax on the returns at a maximum of 30 per cent. Traditional investments can work, too. High-interest savings accounts, managed funds or investing in property or shares can cover most, if not all, school fees.
These education-specific managed investment products, or scholarship plans, are offered by non-profit societies and have a tax benefit (30 per cent paid within the fund) if you are on higher marginal tax rates. Be careful, though. Relatively high management fees are deducted. Still, scholarship plans do offer a disciplined method for education savings, which can be made with weekly contributions. Lifeplan and the Australian Scholarships Group are two plan providers. Look at investment bonds, too. Because earnings and capital gains from bonds are tax-paid at 30 per cent and, in most cases, aren’t included as part of your taxable income, these long-term managed investment products can dovetail neatly with paying for schooling. They’re certainly worth considering if you’re paying big tax and require somewhat more than $8000. \ email@example.com Chris Tolhurst writes regularly for The Age and The Financial Review

Motoring \ rod easdown gets behind the wheel
ast time I looked at Mitsubishi’s neat little ASX it had just one problem; the highly economical diesel engine wasn’t available with an automatic gearbox. Now it is, and the combination of generous torque and economy will win plenty of customers, even if the motor is a bit noisy. The overriding factor is that the ASX is such a sensible package for the price, and prices start at just $24,990 for the base two-wheel-drive petrol model. It’s a compact wagon that offers optional four-wheel-drive and good ground clearance for the occasional bush track or fishing spot, but has none of the traditional hallmarks of big, boofy four-wheel-drives. In other words, it looks and behaves like a regular car. This not only makes it easier to drive and park, it also saves you from the sideways looks from neighbours and friends who fret about the fate of the planet and vote Green. Pretty much the only complaint I have is the temporary spare tyre, a dumb idea on a car that could otherwise be used comfortably for a big round-Australia trip. Bringing an automatic together with a diesel engine is never straightforward and that may be why Mitsubishi took its time doing it, but this combination works well. The changes are smooth and fuss free in normal driving. Only one thing to watch; the gearbox is calibrated for maximum fuel economy and that means it changes down at the earliest
Mitsubishi ASX Aspire diesel auto What is it? A neat little wagon with all-road ability. What’s in it? A 110-kilowatt turbo diesel with a six-speed automatic transmission. Is it thirsty? I used 12 litres per 100km in the city, 8.5 in the country. The official combined figure is 5.8. $36,990 - $40,421

possible opportunity, even when it means it’s grumbling along at 1200rpm, on the verge of labouring. But, given the generous torque available, this mostly works OK and is not something you notice until you floor the accelerator, when it takes a moment to sort itself out and get down to a lower gear. This is something to bear in mind when overtaking on the highway. While the ASX is not a car that enjoys being chucked into corners, its handling is adequate for the bulk of drivers and the ride is pretty good. The tyres can get a bit noisy on coarse
bitumen at freeway speeds, otherwise this is a very comfortable package, and well specified. There’s good cargo space and reasonable rear seat room. The most attractive thing about it is its pricing; it presents top-class value along with excellent economy, and the warranty is among the best in the industry. \ firstname.lastname@example.org test drive »

Tech Talk \ Rod Easdown finds a speaker system that’s music to the ears What \ Bose SoundTouch 30
price \ $899
Tech talk verdict \ Happy wife, happy life
etting to try out the latest tech gadgets at home may sound good but it’s often disappointing. While these things usually do as promised, I’m seldom unhappy to send them back because I’ve discovered their annoying quirks and shortcomings. Occasionally I get a product I want to buy. The last was an umbrella that stands up to high winds. Before that, in 2004, it was some noise-cancelling headphones. Even so, I’d been looking forward to getting a Bose SoundTouch 30. I’d used it at its launch and in the shops, but home is the acid test. And at home something quite unprecedented happened. My non-technical, only just iPhone-literate wife played with it for 30 minutes and told me we have to get one. She’s even figured out where it will go. I’m not arguing. SoundTouch is neat. It’s a high-quality speaker system that hooks into your home wireless network and streams music from your phone, your tablet and your computer. Nothing new there. But it also has software built in to get internet radio and Pandora, and Bose says other music libraries are on the way. We’re big fans of Pandora, a predictive music library that takes your musical preferences and serves up the stuff you like, along with stuff it figures you’ll like. It guesses correctly most of the time, so you have a continuous stream of new and interesting music. What makes Pandora-through-SoundTouch so
compelling is convenience. There are six preset buttons on top and all you do is press one. This starts it, hooks it into whatever the preset is tuned for (one of your Pandora stations, an internet radio, the music on your phone) and starts playing. It’s so simple, fast and convenient, and it sounds so good that you tend to use it all the time, so the house is always full of music. When you’ve finished coffee and can’t put off housework any longer, changing from background music to Johnny Cash takes one button press. It goes so loud, without distortion, you can hear Mr Cash over the vacuum cleaner, important when he is integral to housework (I’ve found Elvis Costello also works well, as do the Doobie Brothers and Gypsy & the Cat). Quirks and shortcomings: the set-up, although easy, can take 30 minutes; start-up station loading often seemed to jam, which may be a firewall issue (flipping between presets got it going). Track information, shown at the start of the track only, is fleeting. The sound quality, while bass-oriented, is excellent. Add extra SoundTouch units and you get music wherever they are placed, too, with the same or different programs. The only problem I face now is the $899 involved, although there are a couple of cheaper offerings – a portable and the smaller SoundTouch 20 are both $549. \ firstname.lastname@example.org

tigers draw closer to title
Golf Sanctuary Lakes has made a flying start to the Golf Victoria men’s division 2 pennant season. The Lakes had a commanding five rubbers to two win over Kingston Heath at Latrobe Golf Club on Sunday. In the colts pennant, the Lakes failed to pick up a match in a heavy loss to Yarra Yarra. \
Werribee is a game away from a Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association east-west group grand final berth after its quarter-final with Altona was disrupted by rain at Chirnside Park at the weekend. The Tigers were not complaining, needing just a draw to move into the semi-finals, but the outcome was trickier than it appeared. The home side had to see out 76 tense overs on day two. “It was a draw, but it was a tough game of cricket over two days,” Tigers captain Shaun Dean said. “Everyone was on edge for most of the day. It was backs to the wall. To manage to draw the game … that’s a win in the overall scheme.” Set 164 to win, the Tigers saw the target as attainable and went in with a positive mindset. That thinking shifted considerably when the top order crumbled to a worrying 4-40. “I just said, ‘Go out and play as if it’s an 80-over game and we’ll get the runs’, bearing in mind that if we get ourselves in trouble, we can always retreat and we don’t have to play our shots,” Dean said. “Then at 4-40, you just need to bunker down.” Tim O’Brien (38) and Wade McCall (48no) took the wind out of the A’s’ sails with a gritty 54-run partnership.

O’Brien was dismissed after tea, but McCall and Jake Purton took the game away by safely negotiating the remaining overs with a minimum of fuss. “Jake’s innings was just as important as the other two,” Dean said. “He only got 10, but he batted the last 26 overs.” The Tigers bowled well on the opening day to

young bees cop a premier reality check NPL soccer
Werribee City was handed a football lesson by powerhouse Green Gully Cavaliers in a 4-0 season opening National Premier League drubbing on the road on Sunday. Bees coach Nino Ragusa said it was always going to be a massive undertaking for his club to confront such a highly credentialled opponent first up. “If you look at the two line-ups on paper, the difference in experience and age between the two sides is really one extreme to the other,” he said. “We finalised a squad of about 20 players and the average age is under 23. “That’s been our policy for the past couple of years and that’s going to continue. “The reality is … the National Premier League is a very significant jump, and that was evident today.” The Bees were not totally out of their depth. They took the challenge right up to the Cavs
for 35 minutes but could not sustain that sort “He’s a talent, a class above anything that I of high level. have,” Ragusa said. “For 35 minutes, we were very good, on “His commitment and attitude to date has par with them,” Ragusa said. “Then, within been exceptional … he pushed really hard five minutes, we were 2-0 down – that’s the today. ruthlessness of this level. “I played him in the middle of the park, “As soon as the first goal went down, but he can play anywhere down the mentally we went a bit weak, which spine. He’s very big and very mobile is the sign of a young side … they for his size, and he’s strong.” “they could sniff the kill, which is the sign The Bees are looking forward could sniff of experience. to another tough hit-out against the kill” “It was disappointing the way Oakleigh Cannons in the Dockerty we crumbled, but it was very Cup on Saturday evening. encouraging that at least for 35 After a succession of games against minutes, up until the first goal, it was a lower-league opponents in the pre-season, fairly even game.” Ragusa is ready to expose his youngsters to Tommy Dunn was one of the best for the some of the teams they will be facing in the Bees in goals, but even he could not halt the top flight this season. Cavs’ onslaught once they found their groove. “I prefer we start playing these big sides Ryan Filipovic was one of the most week in, week out because it’s the only way damaging for the Bees, slotting into a central this young team will quickly catch up to the midfield role. standard,” he said. \ LJ
jets on right path Football
The Western Jets built a reputation as one of the toughest nuts to crack in the TAC Cup under first year coach Torin Baker last season. A fight-to-the-death attitude brought them within a whisker of victory late in most games, en route to an appearance in the second week of finals. Just days out from the Jets’ 2014 opener against semi-final conqueror Calder Cannons at Highgate Recreation Reserve, Baker has implored the new crop of players to adopt the same work ethic, desire and stubbornness as their predecessors. “I’m looking for real competitiveness among the group and a genuine effort level through the entire game, which is what we got last year,” he told the Weekly. “We were rapt with the way the boys were able to display that brand of footy. That’s the hallmark of a good side and if you can do that, generally the results pan out in your favour.” The Jets showed flashes of their best in preseason hit-outs but could not sustain it over four quarters. They need to take it up a notch to be first-round winners. “Our form has been a bit patchy over pre-season,” Baker said. “There’s certainly been some good signs, but … we haven’t put anywhere near a four-quarter performance together yet. I want to see the players play a certain way, whether it’s five minutes into the game or five minutes from the end of the game.” There is always plenty of spice when the Jets and long-time rivals Cannons square off. The rivalry has increased in recent years with a number of tight finishes between the clubs and two finals meetings. Irrespective of the opposition, round one

is always much anticipated. “After a long pre-season, round one gets built up pretty big at whatever level you play and that’s certainly the case for us,” Baker said. Mitch Norton, on the comeback trail after a shoulder reconstruction, is a player to watch for the Jets. The mercurial forward could be set to show his wares in the midfield after spending most of last season closer to goal. “He’s only played six quarters of footy in the pre-season but he seems to have gone to
another level,” Baker said. Connor Menadue had a strong lead-up to the season and will be used in a variety of roles, while Liam Carter looks set to take the vacant key defensive post. Dillon Rainbow was the stand-out Jet in the final practice match against Northern Knights, working across half forward and half back. The first bounce will be at 11am, Saturday. \ LANCE JENKINSON email@example.com
plucky reds almost turn giantkillers Dockerty Cup
You would not have left Quarries Park with the impression that Hoppers Crossing was a battler, four divisions below FC Clifton Hill, in any facet other than the scoreboard after Dockerty Cup third round action on Sunday. The underdog Reds from state league 4 were supposed to be fighting out of their weight division. They were facing an opponent from state league 1, but they gave as good as they got, lacking only a killer touch in the 2-1 loss. Reds assistant coach Gus Dos Santos said it was a “bitter pill to swallow”. He said the Hoppers Crossing players had control of the game for long periods, only to fritter away their scoring opportunities. “They’re four leagues above us,” Dos Santos said. “Our boys did really well. We held our own and their side seemed a bit desperate at times. We just didn’t take our chances … that pretty much sums up our day.” The Reds were down on their luck, hitting the crossbar twice and the upright once. Kevin Smart had the travelling fans on the verge of a roar in the dying minutes, only to see his free kick ricochet of the crossbar. Liam McDermott was the Reds’ only goalscorer, with all three goals being scored in an action-packed first half. Even McDermott, one of the most influential players on the day, had kissed the woodwork with a shot moments before bulging the back of the net. “It was just reward for him,” Dos Santos said. “He got a cross at the far post, hit it first time and it deflected in.” Zia Sherzai was best-on-ground for the Reds. He made a number of his trademark marauding runs on the wing and was at times unstoppable. “His speed is always going to be dangerous,” Dos Santos said. “When he starts knocking it past players like he does, he’s hard to stop.” Under second-year coach Alfonso Opazo, the Reds are expected to be title challengers in state league 4 this season. They have recruited strongly, their retention rates are healthy and the youngsters are coming through the system. So the foundations are in place for the team to hit the ground running for round one on March 29. “There is high expectation this season,” Dos Santos said. “We’ve had a very good pre-season and a good 10-week program … we’ve got a really strong squad. “We’ll be fit and raring to go for the first round.” \ LJ MARCH 19, 2014 \ WYNDHAM WEEKLY 41
cliffhanger opens account
devils’ victory fails to impress coach
Werribee Devils held on to defeat the Eltham Wildcats 82-81 in a cliffhanger Big V basketball men’s championship season opener at the Werribee Sports and Fitness Centre on Sunday. The Devils regained the lead with 15 seconds to go, through two successful free throws from point guard Jordan Hughes. The Wildcats made one final push in the dying seconds, only for new Devils import Aaron McCuin to secure the defensive rebound and run down the clock. Devils coach Mark Hughes lauded a gritty performance from a team still getting used to its surroundings after a number of off-season changes. “It’s a new group so the hardest part is getting them all on the same page,” he said. “We had to tough it out with our defence and we just came through in the end. “To win at home is always special. You want to try and go unbeaten at home, and that’s the aim.” It was fitting that McCuin would end up with the ball at the final buzzer after a stunning 26 points and 18 rebounds on debut for the Devils. The 24-year-old, recruited from Fort Worth, Texas, via Paul Quinn College, was too much to handle on the inside for the Wildcats’ bigs. “They found it hard to stop him because he’s so strong under the boards,” Hughes said. “He just competes on every possession, which is pleasing, and he demands a bit of respect in the paint.” Jordan Hughes logged heavy minutes at the point, finishing with 25 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals. Hughes had his shooting struggles early in the game but came up with the big plays at the important times, including the game-winning free throws. “He had a bit of a slow start, missed a few shots but then he got going in the second half and brought it home,” Hughes said.
The Werribee Devils opened their new season’s account on Saturday with a 24-point win over Sunbury Jets in Big V basketball women’s division 1. Then Devils coach Lloyd Klaman brought his team back to earth with a brutal assessment of their performance. “Even though we won the game, I wasn’t very happy,” he said. “I thought we were average at best. If we play like that against Geelong next week, we’re going to be in a lot of trouble.” The Devils were indecisive for most of the game, committing an unseemly 19 turnovers. They shot a strong 44 per cent from the field but also missed countless easy baskets under the hoop. “Offensively, we didn’t look very cohesive,” Klaman said. “We were pretty sloppy with the ball. We should’ve done a lot more damage than we did. “There’s not many times you have a 24-point win and you’re not happy, but this is one of those times.” The Devils secured the win thanks to a strong second period and a purple patch in the third. Elisha Burnette was the diamond in the rough for the Devils. The guard posted an impressive line of 22 points, five rebounds and five steals. She was one of the few efficient scorers, hitting seven-from-12 from the field and a perfect seven-from-seven from the freethrow line in her comeback game from an ankle complaint. Alex Moss provided spark off the bench for the Devils with 11 points and two three-pointers. Lisa Troyahn notched her first double-double of the season with 15 points and 11 rebounds. The Devils will face one of the hot premiership fancies, Geelong, away at The Arena on Saturday night. \ LJ

“That’s what good players do.” Jordan Hughes’s workload is about to be lightened with the arrival of a second import, Rustin Dowd. Dowd can play at the one or two spot, as both distributor or shooter, and has a history of leadership roles, being a long-time captain of MidAmerica Nazarene University in Kansas City. Jonathan Sonda made a successful return to the court after a year away for study. He
scored 17 points, reeled in eight rebounds and shot a perfect 7-from-7 from the free-throw line. The Devils will play their first doubleheader of the season this weekend. They hit the road on Saturday night for a clash with McKinnon Cougars and return home for a Sunday matinee against Sherbrooke Suns. \ LANCE JENKINSON firstname.lastname@example.org
lack of practice games a selection bind for rep coach WRFL
Western Region Football League coach Brett Jacobs and his team of assistants have the unenviable task of trimming back the interleague squad without practice matches as a guide. The WRFL has been training for weeks, but without having players available for competitive match play, cuts are being made on training form, team balance and club practice matches. “It’s not easy,” Jacobs told the Weekly after cutting back the squad to 32. ‘‘It’s going to be even tougher next week when we have to cut 42 WYNDHAM WEEKLY \ MARCH 19, 2014

an integral role in Spotswood’s continued success in division 1. For Jacobs, reputations mean little; it’s what the players show on the training track that matters. Cloke, along with vice-captains Jordan Robbins (Altona) and Tim Jenkins (St Albans), are head and shoulders above the rest. “He’s been a standout at training,” Jacobs said. “He’s really excited about it and we’re delighted guys like him have bought into the concept and put their hand up to be a part of it. “We want the good players to play so we’re really rapt at this stage.” \ LJ
