New state seat planned for Wyndham BY LAURA LITTLE A NEW seat will be created in Werribee if changes to Victoria’s state electoral boundaries are approved. The seat will be based around the Werribee electorate which existed from 1976-2002, including Werribee, Wyndham Vale, Werribee South and Little River. Under the proposed boundary overhaul, changes will be made to the seats of Tarneit and Altona, which are held by Labor MPs Tim Pallas and Jill Hennessy respectively. John Eren’s seat of Lara, which takes in Little River and parts of Wyndham Vale, will be moved south and will no longer include Wyndham. Tarneit will be adjusted to cover the northern half of the Wyndham council area, taking in Truganina, Williams Landing, Laverton North, Tarneit and Hoppers Crossing. Altona, the state’s second-largest seat, will be reduced, losing Williams Landing, Truganina, Laverton North and Hoppers Crossing. Point Cook will remain in the electorate. It will be joined by the new suburb of Point Cook West. The Electoral Boundaries
Commission has proposed changes for both houses of State Parliament to ensure each vote has equal value. Under Victorian law, electorates should contain roughly equal numbers of electors, not varying by more than 10 per cent from the state average. Ms Hennessy said she understood the need for changes but urged the commission to ensure they were correct to stop Wyndham residents from being disadvantaged. “Our communities live the consequences of underestimating population growth on a daily basis.” Western Metropolitan Region Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury welcomed the new Werribee seat, saying it was needed given population growth in Wyndham in the past decade. He hoped the Liberal Party would benefit from the seat’s creation, saying it came within 400 votes of winning Werribee at the 1999 election. Submissions to the proposals can be made until July 29, with final boundaries declared by October to apply at next year’s election. The state’s electoral boundaries were last changed in 2005.
Planning minister slams council’s ‘silly’ plan to cap residential growth A WYNDHAM council plan to cap residential growth has been slammed by Planning Minister Matthew Guy. As reported by the Weekly, the council last week approved a strategy which would limit growth to 3000 houses a year. The council believes the cap is necessary because the city has reached the point where residential growth cannot continue without the provision of adequate infrastructure.
But Mr Guy labelled the plan “silly”, saying there were better ways to ease Wyndham’s population pressures. “No state government or local government can limit population growth as suggested. To suggest that any form of government could limit the number of children people can have is silly. “They should be looking at other measures like greater density [living] in the Werribee town centre.”
Mr Guy said the council should focus its attention on things it could control and guarantee. He said precinct structure plans had already been approved for Wyndham, allowing the development of “vastly more” than 3000 houses each year. Mayor Heather Marcus said the council was determined to slow down population increases and limit the number of growth fronts in the city. “Economic and employment
growth has not kept pace with residential growth and our residents are telling us very loudly and clearly that this can’t continue. “The community has every right to expect that Wyndham City and the government have a detailed strategy in place for residential development and the provision of infrastructure and local employment for these areas.” The strategy also called for future land releases to be conditional on
infrastructure being delivered and the creation of local jobs. The council estimates that 55 per cent of residents work outside the municipality. Mr Guy said changes to how critical infrastructure was funded would make it easier for infrastructure to be delivered when areas are developed. He said the development of the Werribee Employment Centre would also ease population pressures.

Unstable ALP ‘frustrates’ residents: Libs candidate “The issue we have is that Labor are still focused on managing their own jobs and looking after themselves, which they continue to do, and continue to ignore the needs of Lalor.” Mr Samara believed people were “frustrated with the Labor brand”. The Greens’ Lalor candidate, Beck Sheffield-Brotherton, said she was surprised that Ms Gillard was dumped. However, Ms Sheffield-Brotherton was hopeful Ms Gillard’s resignation would increase her own primary vote.
LABOR may have changed its leader but infighting will continue to destabilise the party, according to Liberal Lalor candidate Nihal Samara. The Altona Meadows resident hit Werribee’s Watton Street last Thursday to talk to locals about Julia Gillard’s retirement from politics and their thoughts on the future of the seat. Mr Samara (pictured) told the Weekly many people he had spoken to believed instability rocking the government had become a major concern.
— Laura Little and Nick Toscano
Mixed response to loss of Lalor’s VIP MP THE sensational dumping of Julia Gillard has been met with mixed reactions in her seat of Lalor, where residents are losing their local member of 15 years. Ms Gillard was elected to the seat in 1998, replacing Barry Jones. Labor has held the seat of Lalor,
spanning Wyndham, Melton and part of Hobsons Bay, since 1969. Werribee resident Craig Berry said Ms Gillard had been a hard-working local member. “She has done a lot for her electorate. People say you have to be in a swinging seat for things to get
done, but things were done here,” Mr Berry said. He believed Ms Gillard had been hard done by, but said he accepted Kevin Rudd’s return to the role of prime minister was in the best interests of the Labor party. “I’m a Gillard supporter, but
I understand them putting Kevin Rudd back in again. Otherwise they would have lost more seats – it was a pragmatic decision.” Mr Berry said the Labor candidate for Lalor at the coming election would have “big shoes to fill”. Susan Ingram, of Wyndham Vale,
said she was pleased Ms Gillard was resigning. Ms Ingram said she didn’t think Ms Gillard had done anything for her electorate. “She has played dirty politics. From a personal point of view, dealing with her local office has been difficult.” — Nick Toscano and Laura Little
Laura Little and Nick Toscano asked Wyndham shoppers if Labor had made the right decision.
Rhoda Primrose, Werribee Julia Gillard was the best prime minister we have ever had. There is no way I’ll vote Labor now. I’ll be looking for an independent MP for Lalor.
Kim Heta, Werribee Julia Gillard’s path into becoming prime minister wasn’t the easiest, but she didn’t do too bad considering what has happened.
Louise Heta, Werribee I’m scared that Tony Abbott will become prime minister and what that will mean for us in the western suburbs. I feel sad for Julia Gillard.
Anthony Colangelo, Williamstown I think it is unfair. I think that she was treated unfairly by a lot of people. She doesn’t deserve to be put out that way. She has done a good job in tough circumstances.
Barry Roberts, Wyndham Vale I think it is the best thing that ever happened. Her leadership was poor. We probably went backwards under her. I’d like to see a Liberal member for Lalor.

Former PM bids electorate a final farewell BY NICK TOSCANO IN a typically graceful address last Wednesday, Julia Gillard looked back on the “absolute privilege” it had been to serve as Lalor’s voice in Canberra for 15 years. Ms Gillard will be home in the coming weeks to say goodbye to the community that returned her at the last election with 65 per cent of the primary vote, a 4 per cent increase. After Kevin Rudd regained party leadership in a caucus vote, an emotional Ms Gillard told how her government had made Australia stronger, smarter and fairer. The 51-year-old listed her proudest reforms, which, as she often said throughout her three years steering the country, had been designed with the needs of Melbourne’s west in mind. Ms Gillard maintained the socially driven policies of Labor struck the right chord in places like Wyndham, home to generational disadvantage
and young families in housing estates. “Look at this part of the world – it’s a growth corridor where people come to make a life for themselves and their families, so government services really matter to them.” She said education funding reforms that passed Parliament on her final day as prime minister were the “defining passion” of her life. DisabilityCare, which launched on Monday, was “something that it took this Labor government to get done and I’m very proud of that”. Ms Gillard urged voters to give Labor another term in office, saying many major policies were ‘‘works in progress’’ and at risk of being cut back if the Coalition took government. Wyndham mayor Heather Marcus described Ms Gillard as a hardworking local member who was warm, funny and compassionate. “I think we can be very proud of what we received while Julia was member for Lalor.’’
Kirner speaks up for political sister
Big shoes to fill for safe seat contender Maribyrnong MP Bill Shorten. Labor powerbroker Senator Stephen Conroy could reportedly back another candidate, Peter Khalil, a former policy adviser during Kevin Rudd’s first period as prime minister and now director of corporate affairs at SBS. Mr Khalil could not be reached for comment. Political analysts suggest Labor’s Lalor candidate will be a woman from the party’s Right. Monash University lecturer Nick Economou said the ALP was significantly below its quota of women contesting winnable seats. Katie Hall, a former staffer to
retiring Gellibrand MP Nicola Roxon, was also floated as a potential nominee. Ms Hall has since told the Weekly she will not nominate. “I think whoever follows Julia has the biggest shoes in Australia to fill,” she said. Australian Council of Trade Unions president Ged Kearney, also mentioned as a potential candidate for the seat, has confirmed she will not nominate. The ALP is expected to e stablish a preselection timetable for L alor this week. — Nick Toscano and Laura Little

VICTORIA’S first woman premier, Williamstown resident Joan Kirner, says she’s disgusted at the treatment of former prime minister Julia Gillard and “men can’t cope with a woman in power”. “Who else can you think of would have made that hung parliament work and get 500 acts through, and the policies that they contained?” Ms Kirner said. Ms Kirner said she did not believe “arch conservative” opposition leader Tony Abbott was a shoo-in for Australia’s next prime minister. — Goya Dmytryshchak

AS the dust settles following Julia Gillard’s shock decision to retire from politics, contenders for her safe seat of Lalor are emerging. Labor sources told the Weekly former Melbourne councillor Kimberley Kitching (pictured) was the front runner. If an election is called earlier than September 14, Labor’s national executive could use its emergency powers to fast-track a candidate for the seat instead of going to a local vote.

Middle-class users on ice’s slippery slope BY NICK TOSCANO
DRUG counsellors are reporting a surge in the number of “relatively normal, middle-aged and successful people” in Wyndham who are affected by crystal methamphetamine use. The Werribee-based Stepping Up consortium, Wyndham’s only fulltime alcohol and drug treatment service, says use of the highly addictive drug known as ‘‘ice’’ has soared because the availability of speed, another amphetamine-based drug, has declined. Stepping Up general manager Shelley Cross said the “dramatic and rapid” shift had taken a massive toll on the Wyndham community, affecting a new demographic of middle-class residents. “There is a perception that ice users have a long history with alcohol and other drugs, or a history of criminal activity, but this is not the case,” she said. “Within the past six months, we have been able to identify a growing trend across all our sites
in the increasing prevalence of methamphetamine.” Ms Cross said the counselling service, with centres at Werribee and Melton, had received an increase in the number of firsttime users referred on court orders, particularly due to domestic violence. Last Wednesday, magistrate Sharon Cure, who regularly sits at Werribee Magistrates Court, slammed ice as “the worst drug out there”. “Victorian psych hospitals are full of people with meth-induced psychosis,” she said in her remarks to a 22-year-old Werribee man applying to have his driver’s licence reinstated after being caught high on ice behind the wheel. Latest data from Ambulance Victoria reveals the number of callouts across Wyndham related to ice abuse more than doubled within a 12-month period. Paramedics were called to 19 crystal meth cases in the municipality in 2011-12, compared to nine a year earlier. Statewide, there were 592 crystal meth callouts last year, up from 282.
Massive toll: Shelley Cross says ice use is affecting a new demographic.

School pleads for urgent repairs ONE of Wyndham’s oldest schools is urging the state government to address maintenance problems. The Grange College’s school council president, Noel Moodie, said no significant infrastructure had been added to the Hoppers Crossing senior campus since it was built 20 years ago. He said the school was suffering from water damage, drainage and roofing problems and burst irrigation pipes. Four wings of the secondary school have been without heating for 12 months. “There has been a lack of maintenance and we have been warning it will fall over,” Mr Moodie said. “A recent review said we were in good condition.” Mr Moodie said the school hoped to follow in the footsteps of Werribee Secondary College and Wyndham Central College, which have received
state funding for redevelopments in recent years. He said The Grange’s primary school was built to accommodate about 300 pupils – about 800 are now enrolled. Tarneit MP Tim Pallas said the school was forced to add portable classrooms to deal with population growth and now had 27 portables across two campuses. Western Metropolitan Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury said the government had to balance repairing existing schools with building new ones. An Education Department spokesman said the school’s buildings were rated higher than the threshold to attract funding. He said the department had reviewed five buildings and expected to make a decision on their need for repair by the end of this month. The department was working with the college to find a solution to its heating problems.
No rates discount for retirement homes RATES will rise by an average 5.5 per cent after Wyndham council approved its 2013-14 budget. Councillors adopted the budget at Monday’s council meeting after receiving 12 submissions, including requests for funding for road widening in Little River and differential rates for retirement village residents. Councillors, for a consecutive year, knocked back the retirement
villages’ request, saying it would increase the rates burden on other ratepayers. Included in the budget is $29 million for stage one of the Wyndham Leisure and Events Centre redevelopment and $10 million for the Werribee Sports and Fitness Centre redevelopment. A $92 million capital works program also includes $27 million for roads, including $5 million to start
construction of Armstrong Road. Cr Bob Fairclough said the budget challenged the council to meet infrastructure needs while retaining a strong financial position. “The growth here is real and the need for infrastructure is real. ‘‘We have worked hard in this budget to deliver the services we need to make sure our city is liveable.” — Laura Little

Tigers make point of rewarding loyalty F
a total of $75,000 has been injected into the TCR program,” Mr Penaluna says. “And last year, we donated 12 defibrillators to local clubs.” Mr New says all profits from the Tigers Clubhouse go to Werribee Football Club – a not-for-profit organisation. Established in 2001, the Tigers Clubhouse has been Wyndham’s capital for entertainment. It runs morning melodies, tribute shows, themed singles parties and showcases live bands on Friday and Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons. Some of Australia’s most successful performers have graced the stage, including Brian Mannix, Scott Carne, David Sterry, Dale Ryder and Mental as Anything. Local sporting clubs can still join this year’s Tiger Community Awards program which began on April 1 and finishes on March 31, 2014. Call Rhys New at the club to find out if your club is already involved or to sign up. Tigers Clubhouse, at 70 Old Geelong Road, Hoppers Crossing, opens 9am-3am daily. Inquiries: 9974 6900 or tigersclubhouse.com.
or three years, the Tigers Clubhouse in association with Werribee Football Club has run a unique sponsorship/members loyalty program that rewards community sporting groups in the local area. Formerly known as Tigers Sports Assist, the program has been renamed Tiger Community Awards and, to date, has donated more than $100,000 back to local sporting groups. Rhys New, general manager of Tigers Clubhouse, explains how the program works. “Tigers Clubhouse members can nominate their sporting club [if it’s in the program] and with every purchase made in our bar or bistro points are attributed to that club’s tally. “The best example is where parents can nominate their children’s sporting club and, by visiting the clubhouse, can start earning points for that club which, in turn, leads to a higher Tigers Community Rewards prize at the end.” Werribee Football Club’s general manager Mark Penaluna says the program has been rejuvenated. “We now have more incentives, with monthly prizes awarded.

THOUSANDS of single parents in Lalor are hopeful of a better future following hints that Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s new cabinet could reverse cuts to parenting payments. Labor has flagged it will weigh up a decision on Julia Gillard’s welfare agenda, under which single parents whose youngest child had turned eight were shifted off parenting payments onto the lower-paying dole. Moves to shift single parents onto Newstart began under the Howard government in 2006 and were continued by the Gillard government when it applied the changes to another 84,000 families on January 1. Single-parent families were stripped of between $60 and $110 a week. The issue caused controversy in Ms Gillard’s seat of Lalor, which had the highest number of parents on single parenting payments in Australia.
Wyndham Vale mother-of-two Kerry Arch said she was pleased at the prospect of a policy shift, but any decision could only become a re-election promise. “We want the reversal now, and we want to be able to discuss our important issues with the government,” she said. “If this goes to a promise after the election, we’re still worried about what happens if Tony Abbott gets in.” Ms Arch, of lobby group United Sole Parents of Australia, said members were excited about last week’s change of prime minister. Greens Lalor candidate Beck Sheffield-Brotherton cast doubt over the extent the government’s welfare policy will shift under Mr Rudd, given that a Greens bill to deliver a $50-a-week increase to Newstart was defeated in the Senate on Friday. It was voted down by both the ALP and coalition.
THE future of a closed Laverton North motorcycle track that attracts illegal trail bike riders will be placed in the hands of the community. Wyndham council will host a forum to gauge residents’ opinions on how the track at Lawrie Emmins Reserve should be used after it was closed to the public in 2010. The track has become a haven for illegal trail bike riders, who access the site through holes in the fence. Police regularly carry out blitzes to educate and fine users amid concerns someone will be seriously injured. The council will spend $265,000 to make the track secure. Cr Bob Fairclough said council was concerned about the safety of people illegally using the track. “We understand there’s currently a shortage of off-road motorcycle facilities in Melbourne’s west and that’s why we will be asking for feedback from the community to determine the future of the track.” The forum is at the civic centre on Tuesday, July 16, from 7-8.30pm. — Laura Little

Land buy-out plan ‘traps’ owners BY NICK TOSCANO
pointcook.com.au 10 WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE \ July 3, 2013
LANDOWNERS between Little River and Mount Cottrell say they are sick of being “duck-shoved” after it was revealed they won’t be bought out until the Commonwealth approves a state government strategy. Despite more than 100 landowners being told in 2009 their land would be sacrificed to provide the Western Grassland Reserve as an environmental offset for Melbourne’s growth, a date has yet to be set for when they will be bought out. Less than 7 per cent of the 15,000 hectares required for the reserves has been acquired, while the delay has forced many to put their lives on hold. Mount Cottrell landowner John Morton said he was fed up with blame-shifting between two levels of government. Mr Morton, whose family has grown crops on the 280-hectare property for 90 years, said the grassland and acquisition overlay meant he was “trapped” until being
bought out. The 82-year-old said he was relying on the land sale to buy a smaller retirement property. “I just feel the government should make up their minds and either buy it or let us sell it on the open market,” he said. A federal Environment Department spokeswoman said progress hinged on a conservation strategy that the state government was required to submit, but it was “only publicly released on May 13”. “The Australian government is now considering whether to approve the strategy and consequent development in the growth corridor.” As developer contributions will fund compensation to landowners, the spokeswoman said acquisition depended on the rate of development and was the state government’s responsibility. A spokesman for the Victorian Department of Environment and Primary Industries said it was committed to buying properties in the Western Grassland Reserve “as quickly as resources allow”.
Rare flora falls victim to vandals
In limbo: Mount Cottrell landowners Sasha Janson and John Morton are awaiting a decision on the acquisition of their properties.
WYNDHAM council will have to fork out $50,000 to restore critically endangered vegetation at Little River after vandals tore up a grassland reserve. Parts of the Little River Road reserve, home to the spiny rice flower and other threatened grass species, have been destroyed by tyre tracks and may take years to repair. The vandalism follows a similar incident at Mount Cottrell a week earlier, when motorbike riders left a trail of destruction through Cobbledicks Ford reserve. Council is appealing to residents for information to help authorities hunt the vandals behind the damage. Iramoo ward councillor Peter Gibbons said the vandalism was a massive blow to Victoria’s native remnant grasslands, most of which are within Wyndham. Under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act, offenders can receive a fine of $46,200 or seven years’ imprisonment, Cr Gibbons said. — Nick Toscano

$1.05m infrastructure boost
One scheme. One focus on individuals. One commitment to lifelong support. From 1 July, Australia’s current support system for people living with disability is being progressively replaced with DisabilityCare Australia. This new scheme will help provide a better quality of life for Australians with a significant and permanent disability, and for their families and carers too.
What’s new about DisabilityCare Australia? DisabilityCare Australia is a new way of funding personalised support for people with disability. As well as looking at a person’s immediate needs, it will take a lifelong approach and enable people with disability to have choice and control over their supports. It will focus on early intervention, recognising that timely support can minimise the impact of a disability on individuals, families and carers. Assistance will be provided at the right time, rather than only once people reach crisis.
Who is eligible? DisabilityCare Australia will help people who have a significant and permanent disability and who need assistance with everyday activities. This includes people whose disabilities are attributed to intellectual, cognitive, neurological, sensory, or physical impairment, or a psychiatric condition.
Wyndham council has received extra federal funding to help with infrastructure projects. Lalor MP Julia Gillard announced the $1.05 million last week, saying it could be used to build sports grounds, playgrounds, libraries or kindergartens.
NAIDOC Week celebrated Wyndham residents can celebrate the city’s indigenous community by taking part in NAIDOC Week celebrations from Sunday. The council will hold a flag-raising ceremony at the civic centre from 2pm on Tuesday. It will be followed by a speech from Victoria University’s indigenous academic unit director Karen Jackson.

Vodka binge led to shop rampage He stole three pornographic magazines as he left the store ...
BY NICK TOSCANO A WERRIBEE man who drank three bottles of vodka before starting a fight with a milkbar owner has been convicted of theft and causing damage of more than $1200. Jake Graham, 22, trashed the milkbar at Railway Avenue, Laverton, on January 14 after paying for a pack of cigarettes with a $50 note and believing he had been given incorrect change. Werribee Magistrates Court heard Graham left the store but began banging on the shop window about 3.15pm. The shop’s manager confronted him and a push-and-shove ensued. Graham followed him back inside, picking up two cardboard display signs and hurling them, then swiping several items off the counter. The court heard Graham smashed his fist through an acrylic glass barrier protecting a cash register, dislodged the monitor and pushed it onto the ground. He stole three pornographic magazines as he left the store and rode away on a push
bike. Police arrested him nearby shortly after and escorted him to Laverton police station for questioning. The court heard he was “extremely aggressive, non-cooperative and made no admissions”. Graham’s defence counsel, who said Graham had drunk three bottles of vodka that morning, described the offending as a matter of “confusion and alcohol mixed together” and theft of the magazines as “vigilante justice” because he thought he had been short-changed. He was ordered to undergo mental health treatment and alcohol therapy as part of a community corrections order. Jason Guo, whose family owns the shop, said his father was shaken by the incident. Magistrate Sharon Cure said pursuing damages would be a civil matter.

Kids given a sporting chance BY LAURA LITTLE
ALMOST one in five Wyndham children don’t take part in organised sport or cultural activities outside of school hours, a new report reveals. The Smith Family report found 21.5 per cent of children aged five14 living in Australia’s fourthmost disadvantaged communities, including Wyndham, had not been members of a sporting club in the past 12 months. The report also revealed 23.8 per cent of children living in areas like Wyndham did not visit a library, art gallery or museum unless it was with a school group. The Smith Family’s head of research and advocacy, Anne Hampshire, said costs associated with after-school sports or cultural activities often prevented children from participating. “However, a child’s participation
in sport or cultural activities and their ability to access the internet at home are critical for their overall education and development,’’ she said. ‘‘When children continually miss out on vital educational and social opportunities, the long-term impact can be profound.” To help tackle the problem, the Smith Family has set up a community hub in Wyndham which runs programs for children including afterschool art tutoring. As reported by the Weekly, the Thursday afternoon program at Wyndham Central College allows students to develop their folios with the help of a Deakin University art student. The Australian Sports Commission is offering schoolchildren free access to sport through its Active After School Communities (AASC) program. The program runs at schools and out-of-hours care centres across Wyndham.
A great celebration’s the goal Hoppers Crossing Soccer Club players, supporters and officials – including Cayden, 9; Gary McFarlane; Jarred Redmond; Ethan, six months; John Russell and Lachlan, 9 (all pictured) – will gather at Grange Reserve next month to celebrate their beloved team.

seen as the fastest-growing city in Australia. I urge the council to cap growth even if the State Government promises to spend money on infrastructure. Wyndham needs time for the infrastructure to catch up before it spirals out of control. I continually see developments across the city that are throwing up houses at a tremendous rate yet surrounding roads and infrastructure fail to meet the demands of an everincreasing population. Proposed land releases in Wyndham Vale, Point Cook, Tarneit and Truganina will cripple our roads and services. I urge anyone who feels this way to contact their councillors and MPs and express support for capping growth to more sustainable levels.

Troubling reports exposing racism show it’s time to find a solution. Every racist incident is serious, no matter how insignificant it seems. Our research shows the more racism people experience, the more likely they are to suffer psychological distress, which can lead to other problems. Of the 600 people in regional, rural and metro Victoria we surveyed, 83 per cent wanted more to be done about racism. One in three pledged to take action if they saw it. It is important that we all act.

Caring for carers Information sessions are empowering many, writes Nick Toscano
“I’ve been OK for the past 12 months now, but there were times I broke down when people would ask, ‘how’s Dave?’ and I couldn’t speak. I can only imagine what my husband goes through half the time.” Joanne, who lives in Albion with David and their 10-year-old son, says people struggle to comprehend what they’re going through. “It’s not easy. Unless they’re going through something similar, it’s hard to understand.” Joanne is among hundreds of carers and families affected by mental illness who are finding support through information sessions hosted by Mind Australia in Werribee. Support worker Grace Hancock said Mind was starting monthly sessions to address a lack of knowledge about the welfare system. “These sessions are hoped to provide families and carers with the information, knowledge and ... empowerment needed to assist in their caring role,’’ Ms Hancock said. Joanne, who for years was unaware she could receive a carer’s allowance, says: “It makes you feel good knowing you’re not the

She flatlined three times as paramedics airlifted her to hospital in Melbourne. While Joanne (pictured) doesn’t remember the crash, her husband, who was in the driver’s seat, will never forget. He’s still rocked by nightmares more than a decade later. “I was in the ICU [intensive care unit] at The Alfred hospital. I’d broken vertebrae in the neck, punctured a lung, and broke my ribs down the right side,’’ Joanne recalls. ‘‘Then there were several months of rehab. David had to watch me go through it all. He just went downhill from there.” David began to self-medicate with alcohol. Doctors later told him he had developed bipolar disorder and Joanne became his carer.

Swervin’ Mervyn There’s a lot going on behind, and slightly north of, Merv Hughes’ trademark moustache and countless kilometres beneath those sometimes wonky knees, writes Robert Fedele
he name Merv Hughes conjures up a kaleidoscope of images. An imposing figure, burly and brash, Hughes was a useful right-arm fast bowler with a finicky run-up that seemed to stretch the length of an Olympic-sized swimming pool. He played in a golden era of Australian cricket and is best remembered as a likeable larrikin, with his handlebar moustache, usually covering a cheeky grin, capturing nearly as much attention as the man himself. When we meet at an Essendon coffee shop on a crisp winter’s morning it’s the first thing that registers. ‘‘I’ve had the mo since 1985,’’ Hughes chuckles. ‘‘Growing up, two of my biggest heroes were Max Walker and Dennis Lillee so I think I was destined to grow a moustache.’’ Hughes has lived in Essendon for two decades and is a regular at the North Essendon Village shopping strip. ‘‘It’s interesting. You’re sort of part of the furniture here, but I find if you go somewhere new it’s a bit of a big deal.’’ Does the limelight annoy him? ‘‘The benefits outweigh the negatives, but there are times when you just want to go and hide somewhere and have a quiet coffee and you get hammered a bit. That’s part and parcel of it. At the end of the day, you can’t really complain if people enjoy what you did.’’ Hughes’ sporting aspirations began in childhood. His father was a school teacher and the family moved around so much his upbringing was akin to a cricket ball being smacked to all corners of the ground. He was born in Euroa, but Apollo Bay, Werribee, Violet Town and Myrtleford were all places young Hughes called home. Werribee resonates with him most strongly. ‘‘Moving around a lot, [Dad] was adamant that you meet people if you play sports.’’ Hughes ate up football, cricket and basketball. But he never dreamed of wearing the baggy green cap. ‘‘As a 16, 17, 18-year-old, all I wanted to do was play footy. Cricket took a backseat.’’ A robust and talented defender, Hughes played for Werribee in the Victorian Football Association (now VFL) and was invited to train with Geelong for a couple of nights, ‘‘but it just didn’t work out’’. It was the late ’70s and a time of upheaval when media mogul Kerry Packer turned cricket
Sign of appreciation: Merv Hughes at the Footscray oval named in his honour.
on its head by dreaming up the renegade World Series Cricket. And there had been a few retirements in the Victorian cricket team, so Hughes was called up to the squad. ‘‘When I got down to Geelong I was playing cricket at Footscray, and the cricket took off a bit,’’ he recalls. Hughes made his Victorian debut in 1981 against South Australia in a one-day match. Four years later the national side beckoned and Hughes quickly became a crowd favourite, with thousands mimicking his customary stretches. It was 1988, a one-day match between Australia and Pakistan at the MCG. Australia had opened the batting and had posted a handy score. Carl Rackemann and Terry Alderman snared early wickets, but rain stopped play with Pakistan in quicksand. The crowd had turned restless, boredom setting in, and Hughes began to limber up. ‘‘I heard a big roar behind me, but every time I looked around there was nothing. So I started the stretching again. There’s a bit of a roar and the same thing. ‘‘I ran and bowled my over and Dean Jones came across to me and said, ‘Do you know what’s going on down there? Every time you do an exercise there’s about 10,000 people behind you doing the same thing’. And you think, well how good’s that?’’ The MCG is full of memorabilia of famous sporting moments and Hughes finds the funny side in the fact there is a photo of him stretching in front of the infamous Bay 13.
“A lot of people remember my career because of that and you think, ‘mate, give me a bit of credit’.” To concentrate only on Hughes the showman would be an injustice to a handy bowler who gave his all. He represented Australia between 1985 and 1994, playing 53 Tests and taking 212 wickets. Former Australian captain Ian Chappell observed Hughes from the commentary box. ‘‘He gave everything he had to try and help his team win,’’ Chappell says. ‘‘Merv is a great example to all budding young fast bowlers ... if you have some skill and give it everything you’ve got, you can succeed.’’ As he tucks into a sandwich, Hughes recollects his career, detailing mateship, mayhem and triumph. When he first got into the national side in December, 1985, the environment, he says, was edgy, cricket still recovering from the turmoil of World Series. He says it took a few years to swing that attitude around, and he credits the change to the influence of Allan Border, coach Bob Simpson, and wide-eyed wicketkeeper Ian Healy. Hughes’ first tour was with the famed 1989 Ashes-recapturing side in England. Australia, pinned as underdogs, took out the six-Test series 4-0. He would return in 1993 for the Ashes, celebrating another victory this time with the cream of Australia’s youth in the likes of Damien Martyn, Shane Warne, Matthew Hayden and Michael Slater. ‘‘In 1989 I was very much a junior player
within the set-up, and four years later you go over as an experienced player and you watch these young blokes come through and you just think: ‘I knew they were good players, but I didn’t think they were gonna be that good’.’’ When his career finally wound down in 1994, he was, he says, physically knackered. He admits he could have looked after his weight more but has seemingly no lasting regrets. ‘‘I loved my food, loved my drink. Ultimately, it probably did cost me.” Following a two-year stint with the Canberra Comets and a couple of years in the Footscray seconds, Hughes kept his hand in the game, helping develop young junior teams at Victorian level and seeing the likes of Cameron White and Peter Siddle come through. In 2005 he became an Australian selector, but was sacked five years later. Nowadays, Hughes’ main gig is as a tour host with Australian Sports Tours, following Australian cricket tours around the world with die-hard fans. Back home he is on the committee at Footscray-Edgewater and speaks fondly of the club where he cut his teeth. He seems genuinely humbled by the fact they chose to name the ground after him. Outside of cricket, his passions revolve around the Western Bulldogs, golf, and fishing. ‘‘My wife Sue constantly tells me there’s a fine line between fishing and sitting in a boat, holding a rod and not catching anything, which is what I tend to do a fair bit,’’ he laughs.

Gates to handyman heaven This is perfect for the bloke who’s not interested in gardening
tanding proudly behind electronic security gates, this house has dual side access ideal for a handyman and is close to shops and schools. Extensively paved, the front yard’s minimalism will appeal to those who don’t place gardening high on their extracurricular agenda. Beneath a large Georgian-style window, a porch with solid posts and a security door opens to a hallway with floating floorboards, an open study with timber venetians and a lounge room with plush carpet and island wall;
both rooms are brimming with natural light. A family-meals hub at the back is also light-filled and adjoins a kitchen with Domani stainless-steel appliances (including cooktop with five gas burners), walk-in pantry with colonial-style door and a wide fridge cavity. The ground level also has a living room with a Coonara and sliding security doors to the pergola, while other features include ample understairs storage, a powder room and a laundry with side access to the carport. The first floor has a carpeted retreat with rooftop views, and four bedrooms.
Double doors open to the main room, which has a northerly aspect, a large walk-in wardrobe and a spick and span en suite. Two bedrooms have fitted wardrobes, while a further bedroom has a TV point. They share a bathroom with spa. Besides the double garage with internal access, there’s more off-street parking behind a gated side driveway and it links to a drive through a powered workshop or ‘man cave’. The pergola is flanked by another side driveway, with extensive concrete paving leading to a grassy backyard for the kids to play.

Another chance to live the dream More home sites are up for grabs at Point Cook’s Kingsford estate
omebuyers who missed out on a property at Kingsford estate in Point Cook now have another opportunity to buy there with the release of 26 new lots in stage 9A. The estate, developed by Peet Limited, accommodates everyone from first-home buyers to families, with home sites ranging from 184 square metres to 576 square metres. Homebuyers looking for ideas on what they’d like their dream home to look like and feature can visit the on-site Porter Davis Display Village, which has examples of new designs.
The Kingsford community has many attractions, including two landscaped parks, walking trails and a reserve, which add up to more than four hectares of recreational space. Peet has invested more than $1million in developing the community’s first park of more than 8000 square metres. It includes a 30-metre flying fox, a climbing frame, picnic and barbecue facilities. The second recreational zone, at Hargrave Park, will have a playground and another picnic area. Peet Limited managing director and CEO
Brendan Gore said 60 per cent of the home sites had been sold since sales began in September 2010. “Kingsford is home to 900 residents and will eventually have 545 households,” he said. “Its success is echoed by the rapid expansion of Wyndham, which has the biggest and fastest growth of any local government area in Victoria, while Point Cook is a thriving community of about 35,000.” The estate is ideal for buyers who work in the city as it’s just 24km from the CBD. There’s also the convenience of having
Aircraft and Werribee train stations and bus stops nearby. Families are catered to with primary and secondary schools close by and Point Cook Town Centre and Innisfail Village a short drive from the Kingsford community. For more information, visit the on-site sales office or call the team.

winthisnow.com.au and follow the prompts. Entries close on Monday at 11.59pm and will be drawn at 10am the next day at Level 2, 112 Cubitt Street, Richmond. Winners will be notified in writing and their names published at winthisnow.com.au, where terms and conditions are available.
hree Hoppers Crossing men will put their fitness to the test to raise money for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. Peter Woods, Adam Jordan and Matthew O’Donnell have signed up to take part in the Ride to Conquer Cancer on October 26-27. They will cycle 200 kilometres from Albert Park to the Mornington Peninsula, camping overnight. Mr Jordan (pictured) says the team, known as Woodies Warriors, took part last year. They hope to raise more than $20,000 for the centre. “I came on board because I thought it was a worthwhile cause, given that one in two people will be diagnosed with this insidious disease,” he said. “I got back on board with the ride this year because I want to see what else we can do to help the Peter Mac centre.” The team has been training for months, after finding last year’s ride challenging. They are also organising a trivia night and silent auction at Mossfiel Hall on September 21 to help them reach their fund-raising goal.

Beating the panic Anxiety can be kept in check with the right support network and psychological counselling, writes Rebecca Miller.
confident wearing them. All of a sudden the fuzziness and haze had disappeared.’’ Bacchus Marsh psychologist Danette Thackwray says people with anxiety don’t have to suffer in silence. ‘‘Psychological counselling is very helpful in the treatment of anxiety and panic attacks. ‘‘Patients can talk about their background and history of their symptoms and learn how and when the feelings began. They can gain the tools to help in their own recovery.’’ Robinson describes mental illness as being like a volcano – it can lie dormant for a while, but when it erupts you know about it. He says it is how you deal with it, and the help provided, that’s important. ‘‘Sufferers should accept they have a problem, get the right professional advice and no matter how bad things are, never give up.’’ If you are experiencing anxiety, call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
nxiety symptoms are often invisible, but for sufferers such as Glen Robinson the struggle is very real. ‘‘I was diagnosed with anxiety in 1995, when I was 17,’’ he says. ‘‘I left school to work fulltime, broke up with my girlfriend and never really accepted I had a problem. ‘‘My diagnosis was brought about because I’d have panic attacks, obsessive thoughts and night sweats. I was constantly on edge.’’ Eventually, things began to turn around. Robinson went back to school, completed his VCE and visited a psychologist regularly. But life took a turn for the worse in 2003 when his anxiety came back with a vengeance. ‘‘I became very sensitive to light, couldn’t handle crowds and was anxious and insecure outside my home.’’ He says the support of his parents got him through. ‘‘One day mum gave me a pair of sunglasses and said, ‘wear these’. ‘‘I wore them everywhere. It worked, I felt

Still a place for mum’s cooking Our food culture may just be turning full circle, writes Carole Levy.
with concoctions that borrowed from science. Tiny, painstaking portions of food-as-art began to perch on plates, gobbled up by rapturous crowds prepared to pay through the nose. But has the pendulum started to swing back? The Slow Food movement was a reaction against culinary pretensions and has continued to gain ground. Slow-cooked lamb shanks were the forerunners, giving diners a nostalgic taste of fare they may have enjoyed at grandma’s table. It’s a menu item that has held its ground since being reintroduced – and for good reason: most people, when it’s all said and eaten, still crave the food they grew up with. If you doubt this, just ask someone returning from an overseas holiday which meal they’re looking forward to having. The most likely answer: a traditional roast or steak and veg. It seems no matter how broad our food church, we hold dear our mum’s cooking. When the gourmet gorge ends, it’s a lamb chop with mash that remains – although hopefully cooked better than it used to be.
very culture has its version of comfort food. Indians have curries; Japanese their fish and rice; Mexican, tortillas; and Italians their pasta. Aussies have always had their meat and veg, but now we are so educated, indeed saturated, in foodie culture that the dishes of the past have been relegated to the ranks of old hat. When meat was often overcooked and vegies were boiled to within an inch of their lives, they could rightfully be thought of as bland, so it’s little wonder baby boomers embraced new culinary ideas with gusto. It all started with the introduction of Chinese food and the humble spag bol. Suddenly, Aussie families were eating meals with exotic flavours. The appetite for new tastes grew and today we enjoy nearly every cuisine on the planet. Chefs carved out a name by creating evermore exacting dishes that promised food nirvana. The cookbook sector exploded with new ideas and television programs delivered an orgy of vicarious feasting. Cooks went into overdrive, creating molecular gastronomy

Citizen of the year P
Well run: Peter Burke has been honoured for his 40-year involvement with amateur athletics in the western suburbs.
eter Burke’s 40 years’ dedication to athletics, both on and off the track, has been recognised with his naming as Wyndham City’s 2013 Citizen of the Year. The award, which is Wyndham’s highest individual honour, recognises a resident whose achievements have had a significant influence on the community. It was presented at the Wyndham Community Volunteer Awards at the Wyndham City Civic Centre in Werribee on June 28. Mr Burke was nominated for his tireless commitment to athletics in Wyndham and across the western suburbs in both administration and coaching roles, and his work in developing athletes and the sport of athletics. The 72-year-old Werribee resident said he was humbled to receive such a prestigious honour. “I’m still shocked and overwhelmed, to be honest,” Mr Burke said. “My father was an athletics coach at Essendon and I started running at the age of about 13 or 14 and I’ve been involved in the sport ever since – it’s in my blood.”
During the 1950s, Mr Burke was a member of the Essendon Amateur Athletic Club, where he competing in running, walking and triple jump events. In 1972, he joined the committee of the Werribee Amateur Athletic Club and over the next 40 years served a variety of roles, including executive officer, secretary and president, while continuing to coach. “Volunteering is an integral part of Australian society and when you’re a volunteer you get back so much more than you put in. Without volunteers lending their time to sporting clubs, charities and organisations, our country wouldn’t function.” Wyndham mayor Heather Marcus said Mr Burke was a deserving citizen of the year. “Although he’s now aged in his seventies, Peter continues to volunteer his time to coach more than 50 athletes and is a mentor to many other athletes, coaches and past athletes,” Cr Marcus said. “Peter was instrumental in the formation of Western Athletics, which is now one of Victoria’s largest athletics clubs. He has helped hundreds of athletes of all ages to realise their talents on the track, but also develop their

Grateful to a T
start the motor. Get back in and advance the timing until it runs smoothly. The first vehicle with what is now the standard pedal layout – clutch, brake and accelerator – came along in 1916, a Cadillac Type 53. Had the T become the template for all cars, your accelerator would be a lever on the steering wheel. And, you’d check the fuel by dipping a calibrated stick into the fuel tank under your seat. The T remained in production until 1927, and Henry saw no reason to change anything much although an electric starter was added in 1913 – probably at the behest of his wife, Clara, who regarded petrol-powered cars as noisy, dirty and difficult. She drove a Detroit Electric into the 1930s. If you’d like a primer on driving a T, go to YouTube and search “How to start a Model T Ford” for an entertaining 16-minute video. And give thanks that you live in the 21st century.
... for a story of control and letting go. By Rod Easdown
enry Ford was a great believer in abstinence. Maybe that’s why he made driving a Model T such a test of sobriety. Ts may be simple, but they’re not easy. The Model T resulted from Henry and three trusted employees locking themselves away in 1906 to brainstorm building cars better, faster and cheaper. But simplicity of operation was obviously not high on their agenda. And for all of the T’s oddities, you can’t argue with 15 million sales and 19 years of unbroken production. It’s a myth that all Ts were black; early examples were green. Henry went to black when he was shown Japan Black enamel, which could be sprayed and dried in half the time. Late in the car’s life other shades became available that were as fast to apply and dry, and buyers were offered a range of colours. But the vast bulk of Ts were black, and there were so many that at one point half of all the cars in the world wore a Ford badge – an achievement that has never been equalled.
So it’s surprising that the T’s control layout did not survive beyond the car. Sure it had three pedals on the floor, but none of them made it go faster. The pedal on the right was the brake. You pressed the middle pedal to engage reverse gear. The left pedal was for changing forward gears and was used in conjunction with the handbrake, which doubled as a shift lever. Confused? Try starting one. Turn on the ignition to start the four ignition coils humming, retard the timing lever on the steering wheel and pull out the choke knob. Now get out and rotate the crank handle anti-clockwise three times to draw fuel into the cylinders, and finally crank clockwise to

Netball Top-of-the-table Werribee Centrals extended their winning streak to 11 in the Geelong and District Netball League A-grade. Victory was never in doubt for the undefeated Centurions in a 59-28 win over Bannockburn on the road on Saturday. Ellie Tubbs (36 goals) and Mickayla Ward (23) ran amok in the attacking circle.
Football Wayward kicking by Werribee Districts can take part of the blame for their 49-point loss to Old Melburnians in the Victorian Amateur Football Association premier B. The Tigers had just four fewer scoring shots but returned 5.16. In other matches, Old Westbourne lost by 56 points to La Trobe University in division 3, and had a narrow two-point win over Dragons to move into the division 4 top four.
WITH talented youngsters Jake Greiser and James Sicily running around for Vic Metro at the under18 national championships on Friday afternoon, the question for the Western Jets was who would step up to fill the void against an equally decimated Eastern Ranges in the TAC Cup on Saturday? Corey Ellis answered the call, rejoining the Jets from Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School and leading his side to a 105-point annihilation of the second-placed Ranges at Box Hill City Oval. Ellis racked up 31 possessions, nine marks and eight tackles to earn best-on-ground honours. “He’s a guy we want getting on the end of it because he’s such a good user of the ball,” Jets coach Torin Baker told the Weekly. “At the same time, in the midfield, you need to have a high workrate and good defensive pressure, and he was one of our leading tacklers. “It was a really good all-round game from him.” The Jets opened a five-goal break by quarter-time, stretched the lead to 51 points by half-time and extended it to 72 by the last change.
The merciless Jets finished with a nine-goals-to-three last term. The Jets spread the load in attack with 13 individual goalkickers. Jake McKenzie booted four, while there were three each to Liam Duggan and Matthew Singleton. McKenzie, brought back to the club under the 19-year-old rule, has changed his role under Baker after spending his early years as a running defender. “He was more of a defender last year, whereas now we’re playing him as a mid-forward, so we’re hoping he shows his best abilities to clubs,” Baker said. “There’s certainly a lot of clubs monitoring how Jake’s going. He was probably unlucky not to get drafted last year.” The Jets have moved up to fifth, still a game outside the top four. They are making a late push for a double chance, showing in the past two weeks they can match it against sides ranked in the top four. At Preston City Oval on Sunday, the Jets meet the Gippsland Power, another side that is considered a premiership threat. “We’ve been competitive in all our games, which is the most pleasing thing,” Baker said.
Top prospect: Duom Dawam snared two goals for the Western Jets.

Steep learning curve for Sharks By Lance Jenkinson
SANCTUARY Lakes shocked Sunshine Heights with the opening five goals of what most felt would be a lopsided Western Region Football League division 2 match at Ainsworth Reserve. But just as quickly as the Sharks burst to a 30-point lead, it evaporated into thin air en route to a 111-point loss. “We kicked the first five, which we were a bit shocked about,” Sharks coach Nick Waddell told the Weekly. “As quick as we got five, before we knew it we were a goal down at the break.” That is the life of an expansion club. But it offered Waddell a glimpse of what this young team has to offer. Waddell wants that future to be in division 2, not a diluted talent pool in a talked-about third tier. He is adamant his young players are learning from their exposure to battle-hardened clubs, such as Sunshine Heights.
“I’d rather play in division 2 and play against quality every week,” Waddell said. “It fast-tracks our kids and it’s going to be beneficial for next year. “No one likes being beaten by 15 goals, but we look at it like it’s all learning.” The Sharks have four wins under their belt and have a goal to finish in the top half of the table. “We haven’t dropped our heads at all this year and we’ve kept our numbers up at training,” Waddell said. “We knew where we were going to stand with the top five and our goal from here on in is to try and beat every side outside the top five.” The Sharks will pay a visit to Albanvale in what can be considered a winnable game at Robert Bruce Oval on Saturday. In other division 2 games on a lopsided weekend, Parkside pummelled Braybrook to the tune of 160 points. Manor Lakes, Sunshine Heights, Glenorden and Albanvale all registered triple-figure margins.
The hoodoo continues
Crunch time: Jack Marlais tries to break through the pack for the Sharks.
WERRIBEE Centrals have found it difficult to pick up points on road trips to Bannockburn in the Geelong and District Football League Smiths Holden Cup. It was no different on Saturday as the undermanned Centurions lost by 17 points at Victoria Park. The Centurions seem to struggle on the long and wide dimensions of the ground, and missing players didn’t help their cause. Tyren Montebruno and Brad McNicol were sidelined and their absences were compounded by the late withdrawals of Matt Walsen and David Hall. Centurions started with the opening two goals, but the Tigers had a quarter-time lead and held it until the end of the third. The last term saw the Centurions hit the lead on the back of strong play from Michael Cassidy and Shaun McGuinness, with Matthew Taylor kicking five majors. But the Tigers steadied for the win. The third-placed Centurions play top-two outfit North Geelong at Keith Barclay Oval on Saturday.

Dominant Reds pay price for missed chances with late draw HOPPERS Crossing was made to pay for its lack of killer instinct in a 1-1 draw with Surf Coast in the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 4 at Grange Reserve on Saturday. The Reds controlled large swathes of the contest and had numerous chances to double the half-time lead provided by striker Alister Smart. But they would have to settle for a frustrating split of the points, conceding a late goal to Adrian Bond. “It was just one of those games,” Reds coach Alfonso Opazo told the Weekly. “We dominated large patches of the game and the score doesn’t reflect the performance.
Wildcats pounce on tired Devils
— Lance Jenkinson
James Kearney impressed in his first start of the season. While Smart was busy up front and scored the Reds’ only goal, it was a blunt attack for most of the game. There were chances aplenty for the Reds’ front line, but they were scuppered time and again by a combination of inept finishing and good goalkeeping. “We had a lot of chances, even one-on-ones with the keeper,” Opazo said. “We didn’t put them away. “We didn’t finish them and then they go down the other end and score one.
“If you don’t kill a team off, it can bite you on the bum.” On the bright side, the Reds are unbeaten in five games and have picked up 11 of a possible 15 points in that time. They have jumped to eighth on the table, four points above the relegation zone. “We’ve been building for a while,” Opazo said. “The boys are starting to play the brand of football that I want them to play. “That’s basically quick-touch, move, the football always looking to go forward, and they’re doing that for a consistent time in the game now.”
The Reds will face a stern test in second-placed Brunswick Zebras back at the Grange on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Reds will host their inaugural past players’ day on August 10 when top dogs Corio come to town. Reds event co-ordinator Jarred Redmond has put the call out for past players, coaches, officials and supporters to join the club in recognising its proud 42-year history. The club’s links with the local community are strong and it plans to ‘give back’ with an annual charity day planned for September 14. — Lance Jenkinson
Tigers’ shock win triggers finals dream
WERRIBEE Devils have won their share of admirers for the competitiveness of a young team in a promotion year in the Big V basketball men’s championship. The Devils have been in the contest late in the fourth quarter of most games. They have taken it up to, and beaten, some of the glamour clubs of the championship. Now, are we starting to see the first signs of fragility in the young Devils? They suffered their harshest loss of the season on Saturday night, being blasted to smithereens in a 109-62 loss to Eltham Wildcats at Eltham High School. Too much of the load was left to Jordan Hughes (17 points and five rebounds) and Te Puao Silver (16 points and five rebounds). A six-game losing streak has ended the Devils’ finals dream. They are suddenly closer to the bottom sides than those at the top. Survival is the priority now for the Devils. They will go some way to securing their top-flight status if they can get a win over Diamond Valley Eagles at the Werribee Sports and Fitness Centre on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Werribee Devils maintained their pursuit of the minor premiership in the women’s division 2, smashing Chelsea Gulls 78-58 at home on Saturday evening. Lisa Troyahn had a huge impact for the Devils with 29 points and eight rebounds, while Nicole Green was a menace on the boards with 10 rebounds to go with seven points. The Devils will square off with the out-of-sorts Coburg Giants on the road on Saturday night.
“When you get the opposition coach saying you outplayed us and you only come away with a point, it’s a bit disappointing and the boys took it as a loss.” The Reds gained plenty of momentum from midfield duo Kevin Smart and Brian Chesson. They provided quality delivery to the front line, but the hard work was only seldom rewarded. “They’ve got a good understanding,” Opazo said. “Both of them again played well and kept the ball for long periods of time.” Michael McDowell offered plenty of bite on the left wing and teenager

By Lance Jenkinson WERRIBEE upset high-flying Casey 5-3 in Hockey Victoria men’s Vic League 1 at President’s Park on Saturday. The Tigers might have set their pre-season bar too low; now they’re daring to dream of finals. Captain Ross Cowlishaw admits he underestimated the strength of his team, which has surpassed the goal of surviving the drop. “We’re four points out of the top four now,” Cowlishaw said.
38 WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE \ July 3, 2013
“We’re beating our expectations. We were trying to stay up and not get relegated. “We had a meeting at the start of the year and [teammate] Darren Wale said, ‘I don’t know why you’re settling for that. We should be pushing for finals and I didn’t believe what he said, but I actually believe it now.” The Tigers passed one of their biggest tests with flying colours. They twice returned from deficits to run away with a three-goal win over second-placed Casey.
The six-man attack rotation, spearheaded by Josh Pace, excelled. Coach Cam Whyatt has implemented an ice hockey-style rotation where the forwards are on and off in short, sharp bursts. The Tigers ran the Casey defence ragged and banked five goals. “They run, run, run for seven and a half minutes and come off and it’s been working well,” Whyatt said. “It’s new. It was brought in halfway through this year. We carry the full 16, so we’ve got five on the bench and can afford to do that.
“They’ve just got to run and be absolutely knackered after five minutes.” Pace is the player who makes the Tigers’ attacking line tick; he leads his team in that department. “He’s got that X-factor,” Cowlishaw said. “He’s got the skills to turn a defender inside out. “He’s got that arrogance about him. He thrives on scoring goals and beating defenders.” The Tigers have a trip to eighthplaced Brunswick on Saturday.

SW: You have been the major sponsor for 14 years but a sponsor much longer that haven’t you? TB: Yes I think it was something like 1966 and it was $10 I still have the receipt, that was when Dennis Dove and Peter Moloney were involved, those sorts of people. I have been a sponsor right through, even though I was a bit concerned when the boys were playing that someone might think they were getting a game because their Dad was a sponsor, but I know that was never the case. SW: What was it like watching Mark and Paul play at Werribee? (For the record Mark played 26 games and Paul 28) TB: I was very proud because I never really played football myself, so it was a very exciting thing for me as a Dad. They had a bit of talent too, and that is not just me being a Dad, that’s what others told me too. When Mark was at the Jets, Ken Fletcher (Dustin’s Dad) said ‘Your son is awesome”. SW: Who have been some of your favourite players at Werribee? TB: I liked Podsy (James Podsiadly) and Mick Barlow. I like watching them playing in the AFL. Robbie Castello has been great and I like Sharpie (Ben Sharp) because you know he is going to go in hard. I remember Frosty when he played and Robbo (Michael Frost & Travis Robertson) they were very good players. SW: When did you come to Werribee? TB: Valentines Day in 1958 I was not even 12 years old. We have lived here ever since. SW: When did you start work, and how has that progressed to today? TB: I was very young, 13 or 14, when I started in the butcher shop. We owned that by the time I was 19 with my brothers Mario and Louie. I was the oldest and now we have been here at Ballan Holden for 35 years. I think we have a pretty good reputation. SW: Has the association been good for the business? TB: I have been happy about it that is for sure and Holden like to see you getting the name out there and it certainly has got the name Ballan Holden Werribee out there. SW: I am told you are pretty vocal supporter, is that right? TB: Yes, at the end of the day sometimes my voice goes a bit, and my heart races a bit. SW: What would a premiership mean to you? Darren Howe
Werribee fought back from 43 points down to record a stirring 29-point victory over Essendon in the Victorian Football League on Saturday. The Tigers found themselves more than seven goals down midway through the second term before launching a sensational comeback to get their seventh win of the season. With Port Melbourne losing on the weekend, Werribee moved into sixth spot ahead of a crucial clash with new ladderleader Casey on July 14. “Was I worried? I was worried we’d get done by 100 points at one stage,” said Tigers coach Scott West. The Bombers dominated early, having 10 scoring shots to three in the first term at Avalon Airport Oval. Had they kicked straight, their 22-point quarter-time lead could have been a matchwinning one. It appeared to be heading that way early in the second term as the lead hit 43 points. Scott Gumbleton, on fire, kicked three for the quarter. The Tigers rallied late in the term with the last three goals but still trailed by 26 points at the half. From there, however, Werribee, with some changes around the ground, found a new level, kicking 11 of the next 14 goals. Jarred Moore kicked two of the Tigers’ four third-quarter goals and the lead was cut to four points before Gumbleton popped up again, kicking his fourth to give Essendon 10 points of breathing space at the final break. The Tigers got the first two of the final term to snatch the lead for the first time and for a few minutes scores were level. But Werribee would go on to kick seven to one, with Ben Brown, Majak Daw and Addam Maric all kicking important goals. Brown finished with three, Daw, Moore and Ben McKinley with two. Kangaroos ruckman Daniel Currie was back to some of his best since recovering from a finger injury. “You have to lift when you’re that far down,” said West. “It was more relief than anything else – it takes a lot of effort and the boys were drained afterwards. “They got rewarded for their efforts and sang the song with a bit of gusto.”
Big grab: Majak Daw marks for Werribee despite the efforts of Essendon’s Joe Daniher.
TB: It would mean a lot after all these years of involvement. Last year, as you know, we got very close, losing to Geelong by 5 points. I reckon we should have won that game. I would love to have a photo with John Nicol, you and the Premiership Cup, that would be good. S a I ca SW: See what can do do.
Bulldogs revel in first AFL women’s match Western Bulldogs went down fighting in a 8.5 (53) to 3.3 (21) loss to Melbourne in the first AFL-sanctioned women’s match at the MCG on Saturday evening. More than 7500 fans watched on as the Demons were awarded the HampsonHardeman Cup. Throughout the match, played at an impressively high standard, there were plenty of contested marks and women putting their bodies on the line as they
crashed into packs for marks, and there was no shortage of hardball gets for contested-ball lovers. Bulldogs coach Peta Searle said the players would take a lot out of the game despite the loss. “We were very disappointed with the result at the end,” she said. “But at the end of the day I think, more importantly it’s [about] what the girls get out of it and what they take
back to their states and clubs. For me it was about giving these girls a chance to see what they could do. Kira Phillips turned it on and I thought Louise Stephenson was great. “The Bulldogs have been fantastic. They haven’t done it because it’s part of their program or job or community charter, they’ve done it because they’re genuine about women’s footy.”
