TAFE teachers doing it tough

COVER: Mooroolbark’s Billanook College under-16 girls’ honours volleyball team has taken out gold at the state volleyball championships. Read more on page 5. Picture: Rob Carew

BY CLAIRE THWAITES TEACHERS at Swinburne University’s Lilydale TAFE campus are struggling to stay strong for their students — all the while knowing they may not have a job next year. The university announced last month that it would close its Lilydale campus at the end of the year — a decision that has been met with public outcry and prompted a second rally at the campus last Wednesday. Belinda Allwood, a Lilydale TAFE teacher in tourism, spoke to the Weekly about the challenges facing staff during the difficult period. ‘‘The staff are going through a hell of a time,’’ she said. ‘‘You have your moments when it gets you down. We are there for the students but we are struggling ourselves.’’ She said that she was moving in cycles, from trying to be strong and positive to simply feeling sad. ‘‘It has got to the point it’s quite a toxic environment here. But having said that, people are doing their best.’’ Ms Allwood believed the number of job losses was likely to be more than the 120 being reported. She said the number would be closer to 400, including contract workers. Ms Allwood is also concerned about the future of the supported learning network, which teaches students with intellectual disabilities, as this will be discontinued next year. ‘‘That is something they [Swinburne] are keeping very quiet,’’ she said. There are now more than 30 supportedlearning students at Lilydale. Ms Allwood, who lives in Lilydale, was one of the speakers at last week’s rally. About 400 people braved wintry conditions to march down the main street to Evelyn MP Christine Fyffe’s office. They left a letter asking her to present a motion in Parliament to overturn the state government’s proposed TAFE budget cuts. Swinburne student and Healesville resident Amie Watson — who created a Facebook page ‘save Swinburne Lilydale/Prahran’ that now has more than 800 members —

deemed the rally a success. More than 6500 signatures have been added to the Save Swinburne petition with many businesses in the Yarra Ranges still collecting more. ‘‘Our goal is 9500 signatures, which is how many they got when pushing for the university to open,’’ Ms Watson said. Another rally protesting against the statewide TAFE cuts will be held this Thursday at Parliament House.

YARRA Ranges council is continuing to push for another university to take over Swinburne’s Lilydale campus. Mayor Graham Warren said a meeting early last week with Deakin University ‘‘went quite well’’ and meetings are planned this week with La Trobe University and Box Hill TAFE. ‘‘We will just keep talking to people and hopefully something will come up,’’ Cr Warren said. The council maintains its top priority is keeping the Lilydale campus as a higher education centre for the outer-east. The Weekly first reported last month that the council had started approaching other universities.

Every poker machine produces almost one new problem pokies addict . . . so 427 machines are already harming about 350 local Yarra Ranges residents. So it is proposed to add another 24 people to that list? Now add the fact that for every pokies addict (the elderly/retired/supporting parents are very likely to be hit with this affliction) another 10 people are all harmed indirectly by that pokies addiction. Do you really need another 240 harmed citizens to add to the approximately 3500 you already have in the Yarra Ranges who are all hurt by pokies even if they do not use them? Stop them.

Re: Parents to get answers on Parkwood Secondary closure plan A community meeting was held last Tuesday night with a unanimous motion to keep the school open expressed by all who attended. We heard one representative after another throw spin at a hall full of emotional and upset parents. Norwood’s relenting of an agreed merger with-

out any merit has successfully destroyed a great school, disrupted hundreds of students’ education and created a monopoly of the area. By refusing a merger and refusing students as a result, Norwood should be ashamed.

Re: Swinburne TAFE Lilydale closure ‘Knowledge can never be taken from you’ was an encouragement by my first lecturer. But it is intended that our university can be. I walked around Lillydale Lake recently and realised what an amazing precinct I was part of because of its ancient and recent history. The beauty of the outer east is manifest. It is our home and should remain the home of further education for the sake of the future. Lois, Croydon (via email)

Sporty day out Doreen Niven and Ken Holford were among those that joined in a torch relay as part of the North Ringwood Senior Citizens Olympics day held late last month. The events included mini-golf, darts and ball throwing. Mrs Niven said the event was a great success and everyone involved got into the Olympic spirit.

Burger battle sizzles on BY CLAIRE THWAITES THE fight by hills residents to stop McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from opening a restaurant in Tecoma will continue at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal next month. Following a six-day hearing, another two days have been locked in for September 3 and 4, as there were too many submissions to be heard in the scheduled time. Vice-president of the Tecoma Village Action Group David Jewell addressed the tribunal last Tuesday. He told the Weekly on Friday it was too early to predict an outcome. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No, thus far theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only presented their first expert witness, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be fair and let them have their say,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. Yarra Ranges councillor Samantha Dunn said each day there was a strong support base of 25-35 passionate residents at the hearing. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have given the tribunal lots of things to think about,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cr Dunn said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There has been an impressive

difference of the foothills to other places in the Shire of Yarra Ranges.

At the time the council got more than 1000 letters of rejection and only eight letters of support for McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is being represented at VCAT by barrister Christopher Townshend SC, whose areas of expertise are planning and environment.

Master mister: Gavin Parker was named the young master builder of the year. Picture: Rob Carew

Symphony in stone BY CLAIRE THWAITES RESTORING historic buildings is a passion of Gavin Parker, who used his interest to start Lilydale business I G Parker Stonemasons with his father. Their hard work and dedication has paid off after Mr Parker was named the young master builder of the year at the Excellence in Construction awards held earlier this month. ‘‘I was very overwhelmed and my heart was thumping,’’ he said of hearing his name called out as the winner. Mr Parker said taking on projects in which they brought historic buildings up to standard was rewarding work. ‘‘When you get to see the finished product, that’s the most rewarding part.’’ Mr Parker said their work takes them all over the state but project highlights for him included working on the Williamstown Town Hall and the Athenaeum Theatre in

Lilydale. Mr Parker, who lives in Heidelberg, said his ‘‘next big project’’ would be the birth of his daughter next month. Master Builders executive director Brian Welch said Mr Parker impressed the judges with his enthusiasm and motivation. “At 32 years old, Gavin has already achieved so much in his career. He has a bachelor of engineering technology (environmental) and has been a project manager since 2004,” Mr Welch said. “He has successfully managed and taken full responsibility for project performance, including financial, programming, safety, industrial relations and quality. The judges were very pleased with his grasp and management of a wide range of technical and complex issues.” Building company W O Longmuir Pty Ltd received a special commendation at the awards for the McDonald’s building in Kilsyth South.

INBRIEF Lewd suggestions Police are appealing for witnesses to an incident in Coldstream on August 2. Police said three 12-year-old girls were in the Halle Supple Reserve playground about 4.45pm when they were approached by a man who asked them to expose themselves. The girls immediately left the playground and police were notified a short time later. The man is described as being in his late 30s or early 40s, solid build and balding with red hair and a moustache. Police said he was wearing a white polo shirt and jeans and may have been driving a white VS Commodore sedan or similar.

Immunisation concerns Yarra Ranges Council’s immunisation team says results from an online survey have so far revealed that 39 per cent of people have concerns about immunisation. The survey also revealed close to half of the respondents used their GP while the others used the council immunisation service. Waiting times at public sessions was listed as a concern by 33 per cent of respondents, particularly at the most popular venue – Mooroolbark Community Centre. The survey will continue until November 30 and can be found at yarraranges.vic.gov.au/Residents/ Immunisation. [YAR]

East faces $21m hit BY CLAIRE THWAITES SUPERANNUATION funding shortfalls will leave outer eastern ratepayers facing a $21 million bill next July. Yarra Ranges Council confirmed last week it will have to pay almost $13.4 million next July to subsidise the shortfall in the Local Authorities Superannuation Fund. Maroondah Council will have to top up the fund by $7.9 million and Knox Council will have to pay $11.6 million. All the above amounts include liabilities for the Eastern Regional Library Corporation. As previously reported by the Weekly, all Victorian councils will be required to subsidise the LASF shortfall, which totals about $400 million. The LASF, known as Vision Super, is a defined benefit scheme that covers past and present council employees who began work before December 1993. Under the scheme, which closed in 1993, these employees are given a guaranteed amount when they retire. Councils are intermittently required to top up the fund to ensure this. Yarra Ranges Council’s director of corpor-

ate services Rebecca McKenzie said the fee would not have an impact on this year’s budget as the money was not due until July next year. ‘‘The council will need to consider its payment options as part of the 2013-14 budget process, which will begin later this year. It’s likely that some, if not all of the shortfall, will need to come from borrowings,’’ Ms McKenzie said. Maroondah Council’s chief executive officer Frank Dixon said the council was aware there could be a call for funding and had allowed some money in the 2012-13 budget to go towards the payment. ‘‘However, the amount required to be paid has come as a complete surprise to council, as it has to all other councils in Victoria,’’ Mr Dixon said. ‘‘As it is due to be paid in the 2013-14 year it is appropriate for the newly elected council to determine the source for funding the debt [after the election in October]. ‘‘It’s premature to determine the impact on ratepayers at this stage. The new council will need to consider its options before setting the 2013-14 budget and long-term financial strategy.’’

AFTER 20 years looking after a very extended family, Janine and Ian Slinger are just as passionate about their foster caring role as the day they began. ‘‘I knew there was a need for foster carers so we thought we would give it a go,’’ Mrs Slinger said. ‘‘I have to admit when we first got into it I thought we would do it for five or so years. ‘‘But then once we dabbled in it, I realised there were always more children that needed a home. ‘‘We are needed by these kids. That’s how 20 years just flew by.’’ In that time, the Mount Evelyn couple have fostered more than 50 children — an incredible achievement acknowledged recently with a milestone award at the Anglicare Victoria foster care award night. With three biological children, the couple also foster two children in permanent care and one in long-term care. ‘‘I guess I got into it because I really enjoyed bringing up my own three children,’’ Mrs Slinger said. ‘‘I was a primary school teacher so my natural job was also around children.’’ At their busiest time, the Slingers had their own children plus three foster children all under

one roof at the same time. Mrs Slinger said their biological children were very positive about their parents being foster carers, with one daughter planning to work for Anglicare Victoria until she has a child of her own. The couple hope to continue as foster carers and say once they get to an age when it becomes too difficult they will become part-time carers. ‘‘I can’t imagine really ever wanting to leave the foster care community. It’s too much part of my lifestyle now to give it up all together.’’ Mrs Slinger said she would encourage more people to become foster carers. ‘‘A lot of people say they couldn’t relinquish a child back after doing so much, but when you can see when they leave your home how much you have done for them, it is rewarding. If no one was prepared to put themselves out there emotionally, then where would these kids go?’’ Anglicare Victoria needs an additional 20 carers from Maroondah and Yarra Ranges to help fill shortages in the area. Different types of foster care placements are available and range from emergency (one night) to respite (one weekend a month) and long-term. Foster care information sessions are being held in Mitcham on September 11 and Lilydale on September 18. Call 1300 889 335 to register.

Operation Jayde progressing well GIGGLING with her younger sister and playing a game on an iPad, Jayde Stannard is a picture of content. But behind the 11-year-old Kilsyth girl’s cheeky grin lies an unhappy experience. In November 2008, Jayde fell ill with what was thought to be encephalitis — a swelling of the brain often caused by infections. A second opinion revealed that Jayde had in fact developed a brain disease known as DESC/FIRES, a rare epilepsy syndrome. After having surgery, Jayde started rehabilitation in 2009 through the Victorian Paediatric Rehabilitation Service. Later, she was transferred to the VPRS clinic at Angliss Hospital in Upper Ferntree Gully to make travel easier for the family. The VPRS provides specialist rehabilitation for children and adolescents aged up to 18 who have suffered an injury, had surgical intervention, or functional impairment. Needing a lot of rehabilitation, Jayde was

unable to return to a normal schooling routine for several months. ‘‘It took her until term three to be able to mentally cope with a full day,’’ her mother Marian Boyle said. Jayde’s rehabilitation team ensured all staff at the school were aware of her situation by holding regular meetings and having epilepsy experts talk about her condition and how to manage risks. The VPRS also educates and counsels families. ‘‘When you have a normal child and then something happens to that child and it’s not the same child, it’s very hard,’’ Ms Boyle said. Co-ordinator Renata Winkler said that although Jayde no longer needed rehabilitation, the VPRS would continue to be involved with the family and hold regular assessments. Ms Boyle is grateful for all the help Jayde has been given. ‘‘We wouldn’t be where we are today without the rehab team.’’ Although Ms Boyle isn’t sure her daughter

A dinkum li’l ditty for the bard of strine BY CLAIRE THWAITES

Poetry lovers: CJ Dennis Society members Stephen Whiteside, Jim Brown and David Campbell playing the characters of CJ Dennis, Banjo Paterson and Henry Lawson in a poetry reading.

THEY come from far and wide, having pledged to keep the words of one of Australia’s most celebrated poets alive — and the members of the C J Dennis Society are doing their utmost to stick to it. The society was formed in 2010 and often uses the Singing Gardens in Toolangi, near Healesville, where Dennis penned many of his famous poems. With more than 50 dedicated members, the society has two events planned to help spread the legacy left behind by the writer who penned The Songs of a Sentimental Bloke. It will appear at the inaugural Sunnysiders Festival in Kallista on September 1 and the annual C J Dennis Poetry Festival on October 20 at the Singing Garden. The latter incorporates a poetry competition with a variety of categories, and entries are now open. Society secretary/treasurer Jim Brown, of Heathmont, said you did not have to be a ‘‘poetry expert or poetry performer’’ to be involved. ‘‘C J Dennis was a literary master and he deserves to be remembered and recognised,’’ Mr Brown said. ‘‘It appears to us it will be a shame if a great

‘CJ Dennis was a literary master and he deserves to be remembered and recognised.’ — Jim Brown icon like this fades out of consciousness.’’ The society corresponds mainly via email as its members are scattered, and its main source of fund-raising is through membership fees. New members are always welcome. ‘‘We are discovering C J Dennis fans all over Australia,’’ Mr Brown said. The society plans to put a proposal together for the state government to ensure the poems of C J Dennis are included prominently in school curricula. ‘‘His work should be taught in the classrooms more than he is at the moment and that is one of our goals as a society.’’ The society’s patron is Australian folk musician Ted Egan. ‘‘We have got some good people on board, which makes us feel we are going to be around for a while.’’ It is estimated that Dennis wrote more than 5000 poems. He died in 1938. Details: Jim Brown on 0438 339 459 or www.thecjdennissociety.com.

FEATURESTORY

Teamwork a ruff and tough job Dog squad handlers and their four-legged crime-fighting partners both love the thrill of the chase, SANDRA BULL reports. police dog’s bark is worse than its bite. Mostly. Dog squad trainer Senior Constable Gary Murray says it’s a misconception that police want angry, aggressive hounds straining on the leash. ‘‘People think we want dogs to be aggressive and ready to bite. But we want our dogs to have a good temperament and nature and be able to interact with the community.’’ But as experienced criminals know, when a police dog is sniffing around it’s better to come out of hiding than run away. ‘‘Biting is not common, but it happens. It has to be justified, just as when a police member uses a baton or [capsicum] spray. Dogs will only bite if someone is struggling or fleeing or assaulting the dog or its handler,’’ Senior Constable Murray says at the squad’s Attwood base in Melbourne’s west. There is a strong sense of history at the base. Office walls are plastered with photographs of past and present handlers and their dogs, some dating back to the mid-1970s when the squad began. Members of the tightly knit team also have their own catchphrases. Offenders are often referred to as ‘‘crooks’’, play items used to reward dogs are ‘‘articles’’ and successful apprehensions are ‘‘catches’’. A dog’s reward for a catch is never food — they are delighted with a bit of playtime with a ball or old shoe and the sheer satisfaction of catching their ‘prey’. The squad also has outposts at police stations in Springvale, Glen Waverley, Footscray and Northcote. Its 45 members, and their canine partners, can be sent anywhere in Victoria, whether it’s to catch a ‘‘crook’’, track down a missing child or lost senior citizen or help control an unruly crowd. The squad was responsible for more than 1500 arrests in 2011 and is on target to achieve similar results this year. Leading Senior Constable Ryan Porter, 36, and his German shepherd Vice, are based at Springvale, which means they are more likely to be called on for jobs in the region spanning from St Kilda to Dandenong, Pakenham, Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula. Vice is Leading Senior Constable Porter’s second dog in his four years in the dog squad. He is typical of handlers who, like their canine companions, would rather be jumping fences than ploughing through paperwork. ‘‘I originally thought I wanted to become a detective, but once I did that I found it meant a lot of time behind the desk; that didn’t suit my nature. The police force gives you the opportunity for lots of different roles,’’ he says. ‘‘The dog squad isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but for me it’s a perfect fit. I love it.’’ The bond between handlers and their dogs becomes evident when he reminisces about his

A

Following his nose: Vice, working with handler Ryan Porter, in tracking mode. first police dog, Zol, who was at his side for about three years before being euthanised in December after an immune disease attacked his spine. ‘‘It was very sad. He had a really good tracking ability. It was a terrible Christmas.’’ The bond is unsurprising as the dogs are never far from their handlers. They live at the family home in a purpose-built kennel and travel in ‘doggy div vans’, where they are safely restrained in the back. If a dog is retired or injured, handlers have to go through an intensive training process with their replacement to ensure they are a good match and learn to pick up each other’s cues. ‘‘Zol was a very big, strong placid dog, a bit like a big bear, and I like to think he tried to please me by doing what I asked. He was quite happy to do his job and quite happy to relax when we were at home,’’ Leading Senior Constable Porter says. ‘‘Vice is like a 16-year-old boy — he’s certainly a lot younger, very active and on a higher gear.’’ The pair are working well together, with Vice

recently giving him an early ‘‘heads up’’ to a man wielding a metal pole. ‘‘He wouldn’t put the pole down and kept coming at me pretty aggressively so I let Vice go and he bit him. The man dropped the pole but kept punching and hitting at Vice. ‘‘But generally, while people may not have any issues in trying to fight police members, the presence of a dog is usually enough to de-escalate situations.’’ Handlers and their dogs need this seamless communication, especially as they often search at night and need to dodge obstacles ranging from garden stakes to tree branches. ‘‘Every dog is different with their body language. When Vice is tracking and knows he is getting close to whatever we’re searching for, the tail comes up and he is very focused. It’s a real team effort. The dogs have abilities well beyond our own, but they can only do so much. They’re telling me one thing and I have to interpret it.’’ Officer in charge of the dog squad, Senior Sergeant Shaun McGovern, says one of the strongest

attributes of a police dog is its ability to track human scent. ‘‘A great example was in Hoppers Crossing in June where an offender, wanted in relation to dumping a stolen car around 2am, was tracked by police dog Kaos some 20 minutes later,’’ Senior Sergeant McGovern said. ‘‘The track, approximately three kilometres long, led the handler along bike tracks, railway lines and across both lanes of the Princes Freeway. It continued through fences, across paddocks, through factory yards to where the offender was finally located.’’ Playful German shepherd pups at Attwood are months away from being fully fledged general duties police dogs — if they make the cut. Tumbling over each other and mouthing at toys, a trio of pups stick their heads a little under a wire fence and start pulling out grass as Senior Constable Murray looks on approvingly. These are the full-on, high-energy hounds that have the best chance of making the grade. Timid couch potatoes are soon weeded out as potential crime fighters. ‘‘We want the X factor . . . the drive to want to work. It’s like some people are naturally lazy or workaholics. We want the dogs to be happy to work and train hard.’’ The furry raw recruits are already in training, although they don’t know it. A tape in the background blares out a cacophony of sounds: fireworks, gunshots, thunder, a screaming baby, all things which could disconcert a dog if it hears them for the first time out on a job. Plastic bags attached to fences serve the same purpose of desensitising the dogs to unexpected sights and sounds, with Senior Constable Murray keen to add a garden gnome to the array. Field trips to hear the police helicopter and see the mounted branch in action are also part of the training. Senior Constable Murray says while squad members have an affinity for dogs, diehard ‘dog lovers’ aren’t wanted. ‘‘With us, dogs are not a commodity but they are a tool and we have to utilise them in the best possible way for Victoria Police. A dog is a tool of my trade. It sounds harsh but you make sure you have an end product that you can use and they’re a very clever tool.’’ Leading Senior Constable Ryan Porter will keep Vice at home when the dog retires at the end of his working life, a gesture of respect that most handlers make. A strong, alert animal, with an impressive bark, Vice is devoted to his handler and there’s plenty of playful licks on the face when the pair pose for the Weekly. But as with all police dogs, anyone apart from the handler who feels tempted to give them a friendly pat risks being bitten. While not going so far as attributing dogs with the capacity to love their handlers, Leading Senior Constable Porter says an undeniable bond exists. ‘‘I think that bond really does contribute to dogs and their handlers being persistent. There’s only so much a dog is going to do for a tennis ball or a football. To keep driving and going, there’s got to be something more. ‘‘And I would say handlers are very alike. We’re a tightly knit little group and a lot of that would come from sharing the same qualities.’’

UTRAGEOUS jokes and frank conversations are all part of what makes stage show Biddies such an enjoyable ride for audiences. The performance is based on the lives of five women who return to their primary school classroom for a good oldfashioned session of what they call ‘stitch and bitch’. The group then discover they have been accidentally locked in the classroom for the night and are forced to pool their resources to make it through. Biddies was written by Don Reid, who also wrote the hugely successful Codgers about a group of elderly men who meet regularly at the gym to discuss a range of issues. Cast member Donna Lee, who plays the character Connie, said the feedback so far from audience members was that they could really relate to the female characters. ‘‘The story really shows that life never changes.

A message from Methven Professionals Global Financial Crisis? Read on for... four words to remember! Something strange seems to be happening in our local area. You’ve certainly heard all the doom and gloom talk. If you’re like me, you’re probably a bit fed up with it (although I must admit some of it sure is scary). Well, over the winter period, something strange happened in our area. Like a lot of businesses in town, we were expecting the worst. Instead, we got the best!! By “best”, I mean that a record number of properties were sold, many for prices which surprised us and delighted the owners. As we head into the remainder of 2012, we are all well aware of the gloomy forecasts. You may well have seen the man some people are calling the “Nutty Professor”. He’s often on TV telling you that your property is going to drop by 40 per cent in value… That means if you have a property worth $500,000, it is going to be worth $300,000. Based on what’s happening in this area, I have four words I want you to remember if you are worried that your property’s value is about to crash –

“Don’t you believe it”. Right now (and I cannot know how long this will last), we have a huge demand for properties in your area. As always, we are offering you a FREE no obligation estimate of what we feel will be the likely price of your property – if you are thinking of selling. I suppose there is no harm in you knowing what may well be some good news among the gloom. Please give us a call if there is anything I can do to help you. Yours faithfully METHVEN PROFESSIONALS

MOOROOLBARK pulled itself further up the FFV provisional league 1 south-east ladder with a 1-0 win over Monbulk Rangers at Monbulk on Saturday. From the start, it was clear that the hosts had a significant advantage with their artificial surface. The high bounce and the ball running along as if on the greens at Augusta National, together with a Monbulk side that looked barely out of nappies, combined to cause Barkers plenty of problems at the back. However, they managed to survive unbreached and, just before half-time, Brechen Adams received the ball from midfield. A lovely touch found Yiannis Christoforou on the left wing, who raced down the flank and crossed to the far post. Adams, who had continued his run, finished off what he started, athletically hitting the waisthigh ball home for the only goal of the game. The Barkers stay ninth on the ladder, five

The Barkers seniors face leaders Warragul United at Mooroolbark this Saturday night, followed by a Saturday night home game against runaway leaders Warragul United. ■ Mooroolbark women broke its club record making it 13-straight games without a loss following a 3-0 win over Ashburton in the FFV women’s state league 2 south-east on Saturday. Star striker Amy D’Ortenzio scored two goals and Monique Nogueir also netted. The Barkers are locked in a tight battle with Berwick City for the league title and their hopes got a boost with City drawing with Croydon. The Barkers hold a three-point lead over City who have a game in hand and a better goaldifference. A draw or loss by City at Ashburton this round would allow the Barkers to control their own destiny with two games left in their season. The Barkers win was a record-equalling ninth in a row.

WHEN Graeme Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell faced Ringwood Cricket Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first delivery in Premier Cricket first grade play, no one would have expected he would still be on the Ramsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; front lines 45 years later. Last week, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell retired from the Rams as one of the longest serving club presidents in the competition. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell called time on his service to the Rams committee, including 20 years as president. Aside from facing the first ball in the Ramsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; maiden season in 1967, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell was the president when the club won its maiden first

grade premierships in 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 along with club championships in 2008-2009 and 2009-2010. He was also on the VCA pennant committee for 12 years and is the father of former Essendon premiership player Gary Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell and Australian netballers Shelley and Wendy Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell said family and his love of cricket had kept him at the club long past his playing days. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I was fortunate enough to be picked for first team cricket as a 36 year old and that first ball was against Rodney Hogg and I survived,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been interested in cricket and

volunteering. For my wife Bev and me, it was just a natural progression to stay involved because I had three boys and they all ended up down at Ringwood. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m part of the furniture now.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The 74 year old said it was time someone younger took on the role and brought in fresh ideas to the club presidency. Long-term club member Mark Freeman has taken on the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role for 2012-13. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been trying to get a change for the last couple of years,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mark had two boys in junior cricket and wanted to stay involved there. He said he was now ready to take over as president. I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made a good transition.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Cobra in NBL bid KILSYTH forward Auryn Macmillan is on the verge of scoring a long-awaited National Basketball League contract after getting a second try-out with Wollongong Hawks. The 25-year-old 204-centimetre player went to an open try-out with the Hawks last month and on Tuesday was invited back by the Hawks for a formal try-out this week. The Hawks are looking for a big man to fill the one spot left on their roster and Macmillan is confident he is the man to fill the role. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I trained there last time I played pretty well,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They told me Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a good chance so hopefully I get the spot.â&#x20AC;? Macmillan, who plays with Kilsyth Cobras in the South East Australian Basketball League, has been working for several years to make the NBL but with few teams having spots available he was

hardly confident about his chances, especially after the Gold Coast Blaze pulled out of the league last month. Macmillan was long considered a strong chance of earning a contract if a second Melbourne NBL side was added to the league but that plan was shelved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are not many jobs available in the NBL,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then eight Blaze players were put into the market and they are all proven at NBL level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very grateful for my opportunity.â&#x20AC;? Macmillan received an early look at NBL life last week when he trained with NBL club Melbourne Tigers after being invited to play for the side against Washington State University in front of a sellout crowd at Kilsyth Sports Centre. With only four Tigers player available for the game, Macmillan started at power forward and put

RINGWOOD Hawks will have home court advantage for the Big V state championship menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand final after sweeping Corio Bay 2-0 in their three-game semi-final series. Hawks forward Adrien Sturt hit seven threepointers on the way to 28 points as the Hawks beat the Stingrays 103-82 in game two at Maroondah Indoor Centre on Saturday night. The Hawks will be on the road for game one of the grand final series, visiting Eltham this Saturday night before hosting game two of the grand final at Maroondah next Saturday with game three, if needed, also at Maroondah next Sunday. Hawks coach Ken Harrington said his side was primed for the chance to win a championship on their home floor. But he said his side had plenty to work on after letting an 18-point lead drop back to four early in the final quarter. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Adrien really carried us tonight and when we were struggling offensively he made some big shots. When you have a 6â&#x20AC;&#x2122;10 guy shooting threepointers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that is very tough to guard.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Hawks play Eltham Wildcats in game one of the grand final at Eltham High School this Saturday at 8pm. The Hawks women were eliminated by Melbourne Tigers on Saturday night.

Let the finals battle continue BY ROY WARD THE battle for Yarra Valley Mountain District Football League division 1 finals places continues into the last two rounds of the season. Five clubs are separated by just one game between third and seventh position with only top-two clubs Gembrook Cockatoo and Woori Yallock assured of playing in the finals. Third-placed Monbulk moved past fourthplaced Wandin on Saturday after their clash at Monbulk, the home side winning by 25 points. The two clubs are tied on points with Monbulk holding a slim lead on percentage. Upwey Tecoma continued its rise into finals

calculations with a 62-point win over Healesville at Healesville but with a low percentage, the Tigers will need to keep on winning to confirm a place in the finals. The Tigers hold a slim two-point advantage over Warburton-Millgrove and Olinda-Ferny Creek. The Tigers visit Wandin this Saturday then host Warburton-Millgrove in the last round. While Mt Evelyn is out of the finals race, midseason recruit Damian Cupido continued his stellar form with seven goals in the Rovers win over Emerald on Saturday. The Rovers face Woori Yallock and bottomside Healesville in their final two games, avoiding

any sides who are battling for a finals berth. In division 2, Yarra Glen’s Ryan Kueffer kicked 12 goals in his side’s win over Yea on Saturday. Kueffer also passed his century for the season and he is now on 108 goals. Belgrave’s Mitch Collins has already passed his century with 104 majors. YVMFDL division 1: Gembrook Cockatoo 52 points, 148.00 per cent; Woori Yallock 52, 129.38; Monbulk 32, 110.58; Wandin 32, 91.56; Upwey Tecoma 30, 91.16; Warburton Millgrove 28, 99.26; Olinda Ferny Creek 28, 80.96; Emerald 24, 104.19; Mount Evelyn 24, 89.71; Healesville 18, 76.91.

Got hold: Lilydale’s Grant Hill is dragged back by East Ringwood’s Jamie Hoffman on Saturday. Picture: Wayne Hawkins

four-way battle for the top three positions, a win in either match by the Falcons could drastically effect the finals race. ■ Silvan is within one win of earning a double chance in its first EFL division 4 finals series after beating Eastern Lions by 21 points on Saturday. Cats forward Ash Froud again was a star with seven goals. The Cats host Kilsyth in their final game this Saturday and while a win would hand the

Cats third place, a loss leaves them falling as far down as fifth. — Roy Ward EFL division 1: Norwood 52 points, 132.59 per cent; Vermont 48, 132.24; Scoresby 48, 129.52; Balwyn 44, 142.83; Noble Park 44, 122.08; East Burwood 32, 102.34; Lilydale 28, 101.00; East Ringwood 24, 87.92; Blackburn 24, 84.07; Knox 24, 83.83; South Croydon 12, 68.76; Croydon 4, 64.19.

It’s tight at the top in three EFL divisions DIVISIONS 2, 3 and 4 of the Eastern Football League enter their final rounds this Saturday and several finals positions are still up for grabs. In division 2, Rowville looks assured of taking top spot unless it suffers an upset loss lowly Mulgrave. With division 2 using just a final-four system, Montrose and Mooroolbark are locked on 56 points but the Demons have a much better percentage so wins to both sides would see the Mustangs forced into an elimination final against either Bayswater or Donvale depending on which [YAR]

of those two score fourth position with the Waters more likely to win out. In division 3, North Ringwood and Glen Waverley Hawks will fill the top-two spots, while a win to Boronia would see it earn third position and a double-chance under division 3’s top-five system. Wantirna South, Ringwood, Heathmont, Mitcham and Templestowe are locked on 40 points with Ringwood and Heathmont to play each other, as will Mitcham and Templestowe. Wantirna South faces a tough battle to beat North Ringwood. Unless Coldstream suffers a

FINALSCORES

Roos overtake feisty Falcons LILYDALE’S hopes of stealing another lateseason win on Saturday fell away in the final minutes against East Ringwood in their Eastern Football League division 1 clash. After leading for much of the day, the Falcons were behind with five minutes left in the game following a goal from Roos captain Brendan Holowiuk. Roos coach Bernie Dinneen said he was relieved his side managed the three-point win. He said both sides battled throughout the day in wet and difficult conditions. “Brendan was on the bench in that last term and he asked me give him a chance up forward so he could get us over the line,” Dinneen said. “He has been working as hard as anyone and to come on and kick that goal, it was pleasing to see him do it. ‘‘I went to him after the game and told him I was proud of him. “It was a fitting end to our run of losses.” Ben Neagle, Dean Carswell, Ash Davies, Robbie Allen, Kris Shore and Leigh McCombe were named in the best players. The Falcons could still shape the top five as they face Vermont at Vermont this Saturday, then finish the season hosting top team Norwood at Lilydale. With Vermont and Norwood trapped in a

major thrashing, its superior percentage should see it survive the drop with bottom-side Whitehorse Pioneers facing relegation. In division four, The Basin and South Belgrave will finish in the top two while a win for Silvan over Kilsyth will see it earn third spot. Ferntree Gully Eagles and Nunawading should play off in the elimination final next week although a loss to either and a big win to sixthplaced Forest Hill over the Eagles would force fifth spot to be decided on percentage.
