CON ONGRATULA ULATION IONS TO O AL ALLL AWARD A RD WIN INNE NERS RS

We often underestimate and take for granted the fantastic work that volunteers do in our local community. Every day there are countless locals who freely give their time, energy and money to help make our community the fantastic place that it is. I recently held the 2012 Local Community Awards to celebrate and recognise some of our valuable locals who epitomise this community spirit. The local community have embraced these awards, and it was overwhelming to see the amount of worthy nominees again this year. The awards ceremony, held at Mooroolbark Bowls Club and proudly supported by the Mooroolbark Community Bank (Bendigo Bank), was a great opportunity to say thanks to people that our community could not operate without. To hear some of the stories of the efforts that our volunteers have put into our local organisations is truly inspiring and given their efforts, it is little wonder we live in such a fantastic area. I wish to again congratulate all the award winners and would like to thank everyone for making the day such a success.

They can also connect with arts, music, hobby and special interest groups, as well as sports and social clubs.

A chalk mural highlighting this year’s festival theme ‘Local Heroes’ will be sketched on to a concrete activity area for all festival-goers to colour in. You can support the community groups by buying a tasty snack or treat from one of their fund-raising sites at the festival. ■ This year’s Maroondah Festival falls on Remembrance Day — a time to reflect on the sacrifice of our fallen Diggers and show support for those serving our country.

Tit for tat on residency claims public domain. ‘‘He has used his position to find out where I live and in doing so gained an unfair advantage over me,’’ she said. Ms Di Battista added that Cr Cox’s promotion on his campaign material as the ‘‘only local candidate’’ was false, as he did not live within the ward himself. She said she had looked at maps that showed his property was ‘‘clearly indicated as Chandler ward’’. To this, Cr Cox said: ‘‘I sit on the boundary but fall in the ward . . . I’m a Walling ward voter.’’ In a survey sent by the Weekly to all candidates during the election period, Ms Di Battista had declined to answer the question ‘suburb of residence’. ‘‘In the end, she doesn’t live in the ward and that’s why I said I was the only local candidate,’’ Cr Cox said. ‘‘One of the problems was that she didn’t tell anyone where she lived during her campaign. You need to tell people where you live and provide contact details so

LONG-term councillor Len Cox has been accused of using his position to discover personal information about his opponent in last month’s council election. Lisa Di Battista was the sole candidate running against Cr Cox in Walling ward and lost the election by just 168 votes. She says Cr Cox used contacts within Yarra Ranges Council to find out that she did not live within the ward. But Cr Cox, who has served on the council for 30 years, hit back, calling the claims ‘‘ridiculous’’. ‘‘I would never do that,’’ he said. ‘‘Nobody on staff at the council would help me find out that information anyway.’’ Cr Cox said someone had told him where Ms Di Battista lived, although he could not remember who. Ms Di Battista believes ‘‘there was no other way’’ Cr Cox could have found out she lived outside Walling ward as she had never provided details of her address in the

they can speak to you.’’ The Victorian Electoral Commission could not confirm details of the complaint for privacy reasons. Municipal Association of Victorian chief executive officer Rob Spence said there were always ‘‘a few complaints’’ about campaign conduct following an election. ‘‘An election is a highly-charged time so it’s important that each complaint is investigated,’’ Mr Spence said. ‘‘But they don’t often come to much and we don’t often see a lot of action come out of it.’’ Ms Di Battista said she wasn’t expecting any change in the close results for the ward, but she would ‘‘definitely run next year’’. Cr Cox said despite the complaint, he was extremely pleased to be retained as a local councillor. ‘‘I’ve never lost interest in council. Something different happens all the time.’’

New councillor to vie for mayoral robes BY NATALIE KOTSIOS THIS year’s mayoral election is shaping up to be a battle between the new and old, with councillor-elect Jim Child confirming he will be throwing his hat in the ring. While other councillors remained tight-lipped when the Weekly asked who would be nominating, Mr Child was the only one to state

WALLING WARD Len Cox, Kilsyth Occupation: retired. This time round he’s keen to see a new community hub in Kilsyth, better connected bike paths and the completion of the Pinks Reserve netball courts.

CHIRNSIDE WARD Andy Witlox, Chirnside Park Occupation: project manager. In his first stint at local government, Witlox says he will focus on rate rises and balancing the need for development.

his intentions. The councillors will vote on a mayor following their inauguration at tomorrow night’s special council meeting. Mr Child said that he and the other four new councillors had discussed the matter and decided that, among them, he would be the one to put his hand up for the position. Mr Child would bring some experience to the position, having served as a mayor and council-

O’SHANNASSY WARD Jim Child, Wesburn Occupation: company director. Child writes the CouncilWatch blog, which he says he will continue writing but ‘‘there are certain things I won’t be able to make public’’.

LYSTER WARD Samantha Dunn, Selby Occupation: financial controller. The outspoken councillor is a passionate advocate of environmental and over-development issues.

lor on the former Upper Yarra Shire Council. Fellow councillor-elect Maria McCarthy confirmed she would not be nominating but would be supporting Mr Child. It raises questions of a divide between the four returning councillors and the five new names — a suggestion that all councillors the Weekly spoke to dismissed. Returning councillor Samantha Dunn said last

RYRIE WARD Name: Fiona McAllister, Healesville Occupation: workplace psychologist. The first-time councillor’s concerns include planning reform, rate rises and infrastructure upgrades.

CHANDLER WARD Name: Jason Callanan, Silvan Occupation: intensive care paramedic. Another first-time councillor, he is committed to keeping rates down and improve roads and health services.

week that she would ‘‘probably’’ run, but that ‘‘it was a little too early to call’’. Fellow returning councillors Len Cox and Terry Avery said they were considering it, though Cr Avery added it was ‘‘unlikely’’ for him. Newcomer Jason Callanan said he would not be running. Noel Cliff, Fiona McAllister and Andy Witlox did not respond to the Weekly before deadline.

BILLANOOK WARD Maria McCarthy, Lilydale Occupation: administration officer. Running as a member of the Yarra Ranges Ratepayers’ Association, her key issues include rate rises.

MELBA WARD Name: Terry Avery, Mooroolbark Occupation: police officer. Avery plans to focus on upgrading infrastructure and improving roads and public transport.

A Supreme-sized Maccas battle stop the fast-food chain being built after the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal approved it last month. TVAG president Nicole Gale said the group was still waiting to hear final advice from planning solicitors about whether it had a strong case. To make an appeal to the Supreme Court, objectors must find a significant error of law in the VCATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision. Ms Gale said lawyers had found areas for appeal. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There are errors of law â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the question is, how significant are they?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. Online petitions against the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans to open in Tecoma have gathered almost 6500 signatures. Deputy opposition leader James Merlino responded to letters via email, stating he had asked Mr Guy to intervene to ensure that the number of objections to a proposal were given appropriate weight at VCAT hearings. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I was as appalled as you are that when the matter was heard at VCAT, it chose to ignore the individual submissions of more than 1300 constituents,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Merlino said.

BY PATRICK HUTCHENS A DELEGATION of four people will meet with Planning Minister Matthew Guy on Thursday in a bid to halt the building of a McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant in Tecoma. The delegation hopes to persuade the government to stop the fast-food restaurant being built and will also lobby the minister to change the planning laws that permit development regardless of community opposition. Campaigners at a community meeting last Thursday night agreed to extend their fundraising and lobbying efforts until at least April next year. The group has been lobbying members of Parliament, including Mr Guy and AttorneyGeneral Robert Clark and plans on using money from donations and fund-raising initiatives to launch an advertising blitz against McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The Tecoma Village Action Group (TVAG) is yet to decide whether to make an appeal to the Supreme Court â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the final avenue to

Re: Give drivers time to react

Re: QC weighs in on Maccas fight

It’s good that Jan of Heathmont (Weekly, October 30) is concerned about improved road safety, but I can’t see how her suggestion of ‘‘blinking lights’’ at intersections will make any difference to driving habits. When traffic lights change from red to amber, drivers are required to stop, providing it is safe to do so. But many drivers accelerate during the amber cycle, even though they have ample time to stop. This leads to them driving through, or partially through, a red light. I suspect such impatient motorists would also accelerate during Jan’s suggested ‘‘blinking’’ cycle.

The argument against planning might be debatable in law, but community opposition surely must count for something. The simple injustice of three perfectly good, independent food businesses being bulldozed to make way for one McDonald’s is an offence against the memory of those who fought to protect Australian social and human rights when those were threatened by outside forces. Our politicians never tire of proclaiming their support for ‘Australian families doing it tough’. But, increasingly, we see our freeways, land and cityscapes blighted and dominated by large concrete global-concerns such as Woolworths, KFC, McDonald’s, Shell and BP outlets. Meanwhile, just off the freeways, smaller, family-run businesses are selling off their out-of-date Mars Bars because the economic might and negotiating power of these companies is large enough to intimidate those

Painful wait confirms tardy taxi service BY DAVID SCHOUT

Night owls stuck

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

A CROYDON NORTH woman using crutches after knee surgery was forced to wait almost 90 minutes for a taxi before finding alternative transport. The incident brings into question the lengthy waiting times for taxis — a feature of the statewide taxi inquiry headed by Professor Allan Fells that the government is expected to respond to before Christmas. Noelene Bell, 64, had been shopping at Chirnside Park Woolworths one afternoon in July and needed a taxi to take her home as she was still recovering from the painful surgery. After a supermarket staff member had ordered the taxi, she ended up calling 13CABS three times to check where the car was. Each time, she was told a taxi would be 10 minutes away. The taxi never arrived and Mrs Bell was given a lift home by a Woolworths employee. ‘‘I was told there were no taxis in the area, but I could see them going up and down the highway,’’ she said.

What sort of troubles have you had with taxis in the area? Post your comment at maroondahweekly. com.au, via Twitter@Maroondah Weekly, or Facebook at facebook.com/MaroondahWeekly.

‘‘They didn’t want to pick me up because it was only going to be a short trip, which they don’t like.’’ After the incident, Mrs Bell wrote to Warrandyte MP Ryan Smith, who then forwarded the letter to Transport Minister Terry Mulder. Mr Mulder said in his response that under current regulations it was up to the taxi company to allocate a booking, and ‘‘it is the responsibility of the driver to accept bookings sent to them by the taxi network’’. ‘‘I don’t know who is at fault but it shouldn’t happen again,’’ Mrs Bell said. To reduce waiting times, the Fels inquiry has proposed that: ■ Taxis should have greater access to

Waiting games: What’s the solution to the outer east’s taxi woes? bus lanes along freeways and major roads. ■ The current booking system for wheelchair-access taxis should be terminated. The inquiry also noted that ‘‘taxis that fail to pick up a passenger elicit some of the strongest negative customer reactions on service performance’’. Taxi lobby group Transit Solutions

Picture: Teagan Glenane

Victoria founder Doug Clark, who has held a taxi licence for over 40 years and was a public contributor to the inquiry, said incidents like this needed to spark change. ‘‘There’s just no rapport with customers at the moment,’’ he said. ‘‘Usually these things happen on weekends when drivers congregate at certain areas like pubs and clubs to ensure they remain in a confined area and get more jobs.’’

TAXIS are nowhere to be seen in the Dandenongs on Friday and Saturday nights, residents say. Tecoma resident Deborah Firth said there were no cabs near the pubs and taverns, so most people walked home. ‘‘Revellers wake us up at 2am and there are fights. It’s just bedlam in summer. I’ve had to call the police and the officers take them home because they’ve sat on my lawn,’’ she said. Ms Firth, who lives near the corner of Glenfern Road and Burwood Highway, believes the building of a McDonald’s restaurant in the town will only cause more revellers to be out on the streets at night. Sergeant John Saddington, of Belgrave police, said he wouldn’t see lack of taxis as a huge problem for the area. ‘‘The bottom line is we could all use more taxis everywhere. It will probably become worse over summer, but this is no different from anywhere else.’’ — Patrick Hutchens

INBRIEF Milkbar robbed

The National Broadband Network connecting you to more choice and better value

Robbers armed with knives stole cash and cigarettes from a milkbar in Mooroolbark on Friday night. Two men, with bandannas covering their faces, entered the Yin Milkbar on Hayrick Lane about 4.20pm and made several demands. No one was injured in the incident. Information to Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.

Yarra Glen houses damaged Vandals have repeatedly targeted homes in Farrell Street, Yarra Glen, in the past few months. Yarra Ranges police are searching for the owners of a dark sedan seen leaving the street on Friday at 1.30am after a spate of criminal damage. Police are appealing for anyone with information to call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.

Copper moulds stolen Six copper moulds valued at about $100,000 were stolen from a Bayswater North business last month. It is believed the six beryllium copper rings, each weighing between 20 and 30 kilograms, were stolen between October 17 and 23 from the Burgess Road site. The rings are used as moulds to make white plastic lids for buckets. Maroondah crime investigation unit detectives are keen to hear from anyone who may have information about the theft or who noticed suspicious activity in the area. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers.com.au.

Register burn-offs Locals have been urged to register any burning off they plan to do in the coming months. CFA state duty officer Craig Brownlie said registering burning off allowed the CFA to know what was going on in the area and reduced the chance of being called out for a false alarm. ‘‘The community needs to understand that, for the most part, we’re talking about volunteers who have to leave their work or spend time away from their family by responding to false alarms,’’ he said. Locals can register burn offs with the CFA on 1800 668 511.

Lilydale residents will benefit when the Medicare office in Chirnside Park merges with the Lilydale Centrelink office from next Monday. All staff who now provide Medicare services at Chirnside Park shopping centre will relocate and offer the same services alongside Centrelink at the corner of Anderson and Chapel streets, Lilydale, from 8.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. The merger is part of a federal government initiative to increase the number of locations across Australia where people can access Centrelink and Medicare services in one spot.

New disposal for old TVs, computers Yarra Ranges residents can recycle their old TVs and computers free of charge instead of paying to dump them in landfill. Coldstream Transfer Station in Ingram Road has signed up to a national TV and computer recycling scheme and is calling for all unwanted computers and TVs, including parts and accessories such as printers and keyboards. Director of environment and engineering at Yarra Ranges shire council Mark Varmalis says residents can bring their old equipment free of charge.


Teachers on to a new chapter BY DAVID SCHOUT ALMOST all the teachers at the soon-to-close Parkwood Secondary College will have work next year within Maroondah or nearby. Only ‘‘one or two’’ teachers have not secured a spot at another school in 2013, says Australian Education Union president Mary Bluett. Most of the teachers have been offered a position at one of the seven schools within the Maroondah Education Coalition (MEC) or at neighbouring Warrandyte Secondary College. ‘‘This is a very good result,’’ Ms Bluett said. ‘‘Thanks to the efforts of all the principals within the MEC we have been able to ensure almost all teachers at Parkwood have been

placed in another school next year.’’ But the news was not so good for educational support staff at Parkwood, who are employed on a contract basis. ‘‘Our biggest problem is that 45 per cent of educational support staff are on contracts that run out at the end of 2012,’’ Ms Bluett said. At the moment she is unsure what will happen with those staff, who include classroom aides, library assistants and financial officers. Parents were notified on September 19 that the school was officially closing at the end of 2012. A meeting between parents and the school council on August 7 indicated that most families were in favour of keeping the school open. The decision to close was blamed on low enrolments.

Saying ‘danke’ for the award A SHORT film made by four Luther College students has won a prize at a film festival for students learning German. The year 9 students — Renee Kocur, Amanda Morgan, Ashley McPherson and Elise Dymke — topped the middleyears section at the German School Film Festival. With the help of their German teacher, Celeste Acfield, they made a film themed on ma¨ rchenhaft, which means ‘‘fairytale’’ or ‘‘magical’’. The film was titled Crystals Laune (Crystal’s temper), centred on a girl who has everything but still isn’t happy because she has a bad temper. ‘‘The film could be no longer than four minutes and the script, music and all of the editing had to be done by the students,’’ Ms Acfield said. ‘‘They worked in class for about a month, but the girls did a lot at home, including filming and putting it all together in the end.’’ The festival is run by the Goethe Institut, a German cultural institute with branches in Australia. The competition is aimed at encouraging German language students to practise their vocabulary. Entries are open to Australian students and the films are screened each year in Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney. Ms Acfield says Luther has a strong German studies program that now has record enrolments. — David Schout

Riding tall: horseman was no ordinary Joe BY DAVID SCHOUT

IN HIS OWN WORDS

AFTER returning home from the First World War, Joe Clark didn’t want to speak of what he had experienced and seen. When the radio or television made references to war, it re-etched vivid images in his head that he wanted to erase, so he would turn away. Then 73 years later, in 1991, Mr Clark — then a member of the Mt Evelyn RSL — revealed all to local historian Anthony McAleer, who has now written a book on Mr Clark’s experiences, titled The Last Light Horseman. ‘‘When I finished speaking with Joe, I asked him if he ever told his family about his story,’’ Mr McAleer says. ‘‘He said ‘no’, and told me I was the first person he ever spoke to about the war. His way of coping with his wartime experiences was to not talk about them at all.’’ In the book, Mr Clark describes his horse as ‘‘marvellous’’ and he would ensure it was hydrated before taking a drink for himself in the desert. When the soldiers were due to return to Australia, they could not take their horses back with them and were forced to shoot them — an experience Mr McAleer says was traumatic for the young Joe Clark.

Younger days: Joe Clark before setting off to Gaza in World War I.

Mr McAleer, who is also secretary of Mt Evelyn RSL, says Mr Clark was the oldest member of the group, until his death aged 102 in 1999. He describes Mr Clark as an ‘‘ordinary guy in an extraordinary position’’. ‘‘Every time I meet with others who knew Joe, they would say he was an absolute gentleman,

always impeccably dressed,’’ he says. ‘‘It’s just interesting to see a man who was so lovely who would have been thrown into such tough situations.’’ The Last Light Horseman will be launched at 1pm this Sunday at the Mt Evelyn RSL hall after the 11am Remembrance Day service.

THE Weekly can share some of Joe Clark’s thoughts on World War I from the book The Last Light Horseman. In it, he describes: ■ How he forged his dad’s signature to enlist for the war: ‘‘Being young and that, you were all excited about the war. You wanted to go. The quicker you got away the better. Mind you, you learned a lesson when you got there.’’ ■ His opponents during the war: ‘‘I reckoned the Turks were really very good fighters and they were pretty fair. In the few encounters with them, when you met, they were good fellows.’’ ■ Conditions in Egypt: ‘‘Egypt was murder for flies. You’d rake them out of one eye and they’d be in the next. You were continually wiping your eyes.’’

Coos and cuddles for the early arrivals BY PATRICK HUTCHENS ‘‘HER head was the size of a tennis ball.’’ That’s how first-time mother Suzzana Collins conveys the size of her baby girl when she was born prematurely in April. Isabella was born at 28 weeks and four days and weighed less than a kilogram. Due in June, she instead arrived at Easter. Ms Collins spent 12 weeks driving back and forth from her Bayswater North home to the Royal Women’s Hospital in Parkville to spend time with Isabella in the hospital nursery, adding to the many and sometimes difficult costs of having a baby. Since then, her daughter has made good progress. The months her baby stayed in hospital might have been more traumatic for Ms Collins were it not for the support she got through a program run by Maroondah Council. Bee4Time, a six-week program, brought together 10 mothers whose babies were born at less than 37 weeks, allowing them to chat about

their experiences and the challenges they had faced. Ms Collins says that when she went to the shops people would comment about how small her baby was, which she would find upsetting. ‘‘You feel things that other people just don’t get,���’ she said. Maroondah’s director of community and leisure services Wendy King says the council provides support sessions for mothers of premature babies to share stories with others who have gone through similar experiences. “Around the world, one in 10 births is classified as premature. This can have a big impact on families and how they cope with the first few months of their babies’ lives,” Ms King said. After the program, some of the mothers continue to stay in touch with each other. ‘‘I catch up weekly with one of the girls. We go for a walk with the babies,’’ Ms Collins said.

To find out more about the Bee4Time group, call Maroondah Council on 9294 5736.

AROONDAH Art Gallery has the perfect cure to any lingering winter blues as it hosts an exhibition by award-winning Australian artist Jan Berg. Antidote features complex, map-like gardens that are aimed at creating a tranquil sanctuary for viewers. Director of community and leisure services Wendy King says Berg’s artistry incorporates using works on paper that are layered flat and sculptured into various forms. “Berg uses this unique technique to create lacy green forms to depict elements of nature and then links these with manmade elements made from sculpture, drawing and collage,” Ms King says. Antidote runs until December 8 at Maroondah Art Gallery, Maroondah Federation Estate, Greenwood Avenue, Ringwood.

Methven’s National Breast Cancer Foundation Gala Fundraising Dinner Success! The month of October is renowned as Pink Ribbon month, when our fundraising efforts were kicked up a notch in support of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. On Saturday 20th October the Methven Professionals team and 251 guests donned a ‘touch of pink’ and came together for a fantastic evening of dinner, drinks, inspirational messages, and lots of fundraising at the York on Lilydale. Throughout the evening 10 items were auctioned off, around 15 items formed our silent auction, and an additional 30 were raffled. To top off the evening’s winnings, a cash prize of $1000 was handed over to one lucky and very excited Yarra Ranges’ resident. Aside from NBCF fundraising fun, a highlight of everyone’s evening was the inspirational guest speakers, Sharon and Allan Cohrs. It was an absolute privilege to hear Sharon’s story of breast cancer survival, and we were all left feeling inspired to do more when Sharon and Allan spoke of their Mount Everest climb – the first Australian born couple to reach the summit!

Our team were absolutely thrilled with the support of over 50 local businesses and residents who donated items and sponsored the event. We’d like to pass on our sincere thanks for all their support, and also that of all the wonderfully generous members of our community who came along on the night. We would also like to extend a special thanks to the Mt Evelyn and Mooroolbark branches of Bendigo Bank for their sponsorship, and also GLN Conveyancing for their support and help in making our NBCF Gala Fundraiser such a fantastic success. We are extremely proud to announce that the hundreds of members of our fantastic Yarra Ranges community who contributed to the event and attended on the night helped raise a total amount of over $17,100 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. What a brilliant result for a sensational evening!

MOTORING ●

Muzzle the guzzle BMW — running on the smell of an oily rag, report DEREK OGDEN and EWAN KENNEDY. unning on ‘the smell of an oily rag’, once an attempt at automotive humour, is no longer a joke when talking about diesel-powered cars. The new BMW 318d, for example, a dieselfuelled sedan, takes up the fuel economy battle to the hybrids. Putting the BMW 318d in the ring with such petrol/electric hybrids is a four-cylinder twinpower turbo-diesel engine that weighs in with a peak power output of 105kW and maximum 320Nm of torque. Fuel consumption is just 4.5 litres per 100km on the combined urban/ highway cycle. During our week with the new BMW 3 Series entry-level model we managed to get fuel consumption down to just 3.6 litres per 100km on the motorway and 6.1 in town, which goes a long way to matching petrol/electric hybrids. But diesels create more CO2 than petrol/electric hybrids. As an example the BMW 318d has a Green Vehicle Guide rating of 118 grams a kilometre, compared with the Toyota Prius at 89

R

grams. Helping to achieve such low fuel consumption figures in the BMW 318d sedan is an eight-speed automatic transmission. All 3 Series models also now feature auto start/stop, as standard, automatically cutting the engine at traffic lights or in stationary traffic to save fuel. Further fuel-saving measures include brake energy regeneration that has power for the vehicle electrical system being generated only during braking and overrun. The fitment of electric power steering, which only draws power when assistance is required in cornering, also helps reduce fuel usage. Performance, on the other hand, takes a hit with acceleration from zero to 100 km/h taking 9.3 seconds. The petrol-driven 320i hits the same speed a couple of seconds quicker. Drivers and passengers have the benefit of the new Driving Experience Control, which in the BMW 318d sets the tone with three driving modes — Comfort, Sport, and Eco Pro — working on powertrain, steering, throttle and

Nifty: Small, fun and economical, the BMW turbo-diesel is excellent. dynamic stability control settings. Eco Pro, as well as altering throttle response and transmission shift points, keeps cabin heating and air-conditioning, optional heated seats and the exterior mirrors working at optimum efficiency, cutting fuel consumption by as much as 20 per cent. A fourth setting, Sport+, is available if the car is specified with Sport Line, Adaptive M Suspen-

sion or Variable Sports Steering option. At $56,400, the entry-level 318d limbos under the luxury car tax threshold bar with little to spare but can be tipped over into the higher bracket by a long list of cost options. While there’s a premium price to pay over the likes of the Prius and Civic, on running costs, the 318d takes the fuel sippers on in a fiscal fistfight. It’s close.

Enduring love for Corolla ustralians love Corollas and have done so for 46 years. Ours was the first market outside Japan to receive the car, Corollas were built here in Melbourne for many years and on average, Australians buy almost 10 times more Corollas than the global average for the car. I had the privilege of speaking briefly to Toyota president Akio Toyoda in Tokyo in 2011 during a visit to review and test-drive the new Toyota 86. The launch of that exciting

sports coupe showed that a revolution was under way in Toyota. The new Corolla, though obviously not in the same league for excitement as the 86, moves the car upwards in its styling and driving dynamics. This car is bang up to date in sleek lines and in the way the lights and grille work blend together. It is powered by a 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine based on the one used in the outgoing model. It has significant changes to improve power and torque characteristic and reduce consump-

tion. At this stage, the Corolla is being sold only as a five-door hatchback; sedans won’t be seen until this time next year. In the meantime, the existing sedans will remain on sale. Four grades are being offered, starting with the Corolla Ascent with a price tag of $19,990 before on-road costs. The most expensive new Corolla, the equipment-packed Levin ZR with automatic transmission, is priced at $30,490 plus on-roads.

Fast bowler in with a show BY ROY WARD CHIRNSIDE Park resident Matthew Fotia is no certainty to make the Victorian side for the national under-19 championships in Adelaide in January. But the 18-year-old right-arm fast bowler is giving himself every opportunity to make the side after being named in the 16-man preliminary squad last week. Players in the squad will go through fitness testing and match practice over the coming weeks before the squad is cut down to 12 or 13 players for the

championships. Fotia, who plays in Ringwood’s second XI, is excited to get the chance to continue with the under-19 side. “I’m happy with what I’ve achieved so far and excited for what’s happening next,” he said. Fotia will juggle his training with his year 12 exams at Mt Lilydale Mercy College. He said training with the best teenage players in the state was an excellent test of his skills. “It’s just exciting; it’s a good measuring stick for me. “There are a few players in the

squad who play Premier Cricket, a couple who have played under-19s for Victoria last year, so going up against them is great. You won’t come across players like this in club cricket.” Fotia said he was a bit nervous about checking the Cricket Victoria website to see if he had made the 16-man squad. “I was studying for my exams and got a text to check the website so I went online and found my name there. It was towards the bottom so I was a bit nervous checking through the names until I saw mine. “It took my mind off things a bit.”

New coach relishes a return to home turf

Spider coach: New Ringwood coach Brent Jane is relishing his return to the Redbacks. Picture: Wayne Hawkins

ASPIRATION and opportunity led new Ringwood coach Brent Jane back to his home club. Jane will be a playing coach for the Redbacks next season. The coaching role will be his first in senior football but comes after a number of years in the EFL, including being Bayswater’s captain between 2009 and 2011 and best-and-fairest player in 2008. Jane played under-18s with the Redbacks and started his senior career with the club, playing in the 2005 senior premiership side when the club played in division 2. Usually a full-back, Jane played much of the past season as the Waters’ full-forward so he could play at either end of the Redbacks. Jane said he was already working closely with his players to make sure they stayed on for season 2013, which he sees as a big year for the club. ‘‘Since I’ve been appointed I’ve been

very busy on the phone talking to players,’’ he said. ‘‘I’m in a good position where I know the blokes so I’ve called and touched base with them. We’ve got a healthy list and I want to maintain that. ‘‘You are always looking at recruits this time of year. We want to put the best team on the park and we’ll look to getting a couple of players to strengthen areas we think need some improvement.’’ During his time with the Waters, Jane kept a close watch on his former club. ‘‘I’ve always tracked Ringwood over the years, having played there before Bayswater. ‘‘I’m at that stage of life where coaching looks good. I’ve always had an aspiration to coach, and when I saw the Ringwood job advertised I thought it was a good opportunity. ‘‘The side is on the up. We had all sides in finals this year and it was the

right time in my life and an aspiration, so I had a go.’’ Jane is confident he can lead the side well as a playing coach, and he will have an assistant coach to run things from the interchange bench. ‘‘I went in for the job with confidence. To get the phone call to say it was mine was nice. ‘‘I guess there is always an element of surprise, but at the same time I will take confidence from getting it.’’ Redbacks president Bill Toohey said Jane was an excellent leader who the club was happy to see come home. ‘‘It’s with great excitement that the club has given one of its former sons the opportunity to return as coach of a club where Brent’s history began at junior level and matured to become a valued member of the senior team,’’ he said. ‘‘We look forward to a successful and promising 2013 season under Brent’s example and leadership. — Roy Ward

Williams proves that you can’t keep a good jockey down SPRING FEVER by ROY ASPINALL

TWELVE months ago, Cranbourne-born Craig Williams was robbed of the dream of becoming the first jockey to win the spring trifecta of the BMW Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup in one season. Five other jockeys — George Young (1924), Bill Duncan (1928), Scobie Breasley (1944), Harold Badger (1947) and Jim Johnson (1967) — had won the first two, but none could complete the treble. Williams, the son of Cranbourne

trainer and former jockey Allan Williams and wife Glenda, was suspended after the Bendigo Cup. A last-minute appeal to the VCAT failed to gain him a reprieve to ride Dunaden in the Melbourne Cup. One year later, he has again won the Caulfield Cup and now has the chance to win tomorrow’s 152nd running of the group 1 $6,200,000 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200 metres) at Flemington, again on Dunaden, who he partnered to an impressive win at Caulfield. Williams has ridden Dunaden four times, winning last year’s Geelong Cup and Hong Kong Vase. He went to England to ride the Frenchtrained horse and finished sixth in the King George Stakes at Ascot on July 21. Williams is not concerned Dunaden will have to carry 59 kilograms, a rise of 4.5kg on last year. It will be the highest weight carried by a winner

since metrics were introduced and the most since Rain Lover carried 9 stone, 7 pounds (60.5kg) when he won his second cup in 1969. “His form is excellent,” Williams said. “I believe he’s a four-lengths-better horse than last year. Only bad luck will stop him.” It’s an even more intriguing Melbourne Cup than other years. A large percentage of the overseas-raced horses have been either trained overseas or are now members of local stables, with some having exposed form and others yet to run here. Based on his great Caulfield Cup win, Dunaden is certainly the horse to beat. Also a top chance is Americain — owned by Dandenong businessman, Gerry Ryan, and his partner Kevin Bamford — who won the Melbourne Cup two years ago. In the Caulfield Cup,. Americain ran a slashing fourth after racing wide and losing two front

shoes. Connections were not happy with the ride of French jockey Gerard Mosse and he has been replaced by dual winner of the race, Damien Oliver. Last year’s runner-up, Red Cadeaux, has been working well at Werribee and looks better than in 2011. Although most interest centres on today, there’s still plenty on the $1,005,000 group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) to be run on Thursday. Then on Saturday, there’s the $1,002,500 group 1 Patinack Farm Classic (1200m) and the $1,005,000 group 1 Emirates Stakes (1200m) plus the $251,000 group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600m). The Spring Racing Carnival concludes on November 17 with Sportingbet Sandown Guineas Day on Sandown’s Hillside track.

Skipper’s ton puts Mt Evelyn on top BY CHRIS ANDERSON IT was a big day for the stars of the Yarra Valley Cricket Association as they shone on a perfect day for cricket. Talent, young and old, was the order of the day as the teams in DJ Strachan Shield rounded out the one-day stretch of the season with some entertaining cricket. At Mt Evelyn Reserve, Mt Evelyn captain Kane Jones, a dual Drummond medallist, lit up the crowd with a dominant display with the bat against Woori Yallock. In the opening two weeks of the season, the Rovers have been scratchy at the top of the order, and when they lost their first two wickets cheaply, Jones took it upon himself to restore some pride. Combining with his brothers Luke and Brad,

Jones dismantled the Tigers’ attack with a blistering 147 to lead his team to an imposing total of 8-284. ‘Frosty’ Smith (3-45) was the best of the hapless attack. The Tigers made a fair fist of the reply as a century-strong opening stand between Paul Broussard and Mick Dwyer set the foundations. The required run rate, however, was always going to be difficult to maintain and, despite some lusty hitting by talented Woori captain Simon Young (79), the Tigers fell 50 short. Jones capped off his day with 3-33, ably supported by youngsters Jesse Fraser and Jed Thompson. The big match of the round was at Coldstream, where the grand final rematch between the Crocs and Seville took place. Coldstream has been the most consistent team

Lilydale father and son a handy pair LILYDALE is confident its batsmen can chase down a tricky total of 208 against Croydon Ranges when play resumes in the RDCA Wilkins Cup this Saturday. On a grinding day one, Ranges managed to bat out its 80 overs at Lilydale Reserve, making 9-208. It had to work hard for its runs against some consistent bowling from the home side. Lilydale coach Grant Jordan said that if his side batted its full 80 overs this Saturday it would come away with the win. ‘‘You wouldn’t mind if they had 20 less runs but their score was around par for the ground,’’ he said. ‘‘They batted well, but it was one of those games where no one was ever on top throughout the day. ‘‘It was a bit of a grind all day and it should be a good game when we get back out there on Saturday.’’ Lilydale was also happy with debutant 15-yearold bowler Zac Staggard, who took 2-31 from 10 overs and played his first match along side his dad, Craig, a long-time Lilydale player who took 1-23 from eight overs Marcus Baxter claimed 3-52 from 26 overs. — Roy Ward

with the bat so far this season, while Seville’s blistering bowling left this contest eagerly anticipated. Unfortunately for the Crocs fans, the match was almost over before it started. Not to be outdone by his contemporaries, four-time Drummond medallist Gary Frankovic marked his return to cricket with 4-17. The medium-pacer was supported brilliantly by Ishara Amarasinge (2-6) and captain Dean Troyhan (2-12). Brett Wiseman (23) battled gamely for the Crocs, but a paltry score of 55 was well below that of the premiers. The Blues have had their batting struggles in recent weeks, but despite gun Crocs recruit Matt Johnson prising out two early wickets, energetic Blues opener Leigh Aitkins (30 not out) ensured the visitors had minimal problems. They got to the target with six wickets in hand.

SCOREBOARD DJ Strachan Shield Coldstream 10-55 (B Wiseman 23, G Frankovic 4-17, I Amarasinghe 2-6, D Troyahn 2-12) defeated by Seville 4-59 (L Aitkins 30*, M Johnson 2-21, L Doughty 1-5, C Dikschei 1-12), Healesville 5-156 (G Stock 59* J Heywood 34 Q Hogkinson 3-30) defeated Yarra Junction 9-153 (C Spaulding 45 C Burridge 3-19 A Harrison 3-44), Mt Evelyn 8-284 (K Jones 147, L Jones 42, R Smith 3-45, J Bayliss 2-66, S Young 2-70) defeated Woori Yallock 10-234 (S Young 79, M Dwyer 64, P Broussard 44, K Jones 3-33, J Fraser 2-38, J Thompson 2-47), Warbuton Millgrove 8-120 (D Egan 43*, D Chesney 3-23) defeated Hoddles Creek 8-87 (B Derix 32, A Humphrey 3-10)

Middle order props up Vikings NORWOOD went on a run spree against South Warrandyte in the RDCA Lindsay Trollope Shield on Saturday. At 4-133, with David Hester contributing 51, the Vikings were sparked by a 139-run, fifth-wicket partnership between Jarrod Hochkins (96) and Zac McCubbin (50) that enabled them to compile 8-331cc. Josh Barrett (4-54) picked up late wickets for the Hawks. In other matches, Croydon North’s Chris Noy (59 not out) again ran out of partners in the Knights’ innings of 120 against Warranwood. Tim Hall (4-42) and Andrew Spittle (3-16) did the damage. In reply, Warranwood is in trouble at 3-24 and the premier is looking at three losses in a row. South Croydon looks in control of its match against Mooroolbark. After losing Lincoln Grigg on the second ball and Brendan Ricci to a runout, only Adam Houghton (35) made any meaningful runs in Mooroolbark’s total of 107. Travis Degenhardt (4-29) took bowling honours. The Bulldogs will resume next week at 2-45. On a very slow ground, North Ringwood sent Ainslie Park in to bat. The Parkers lost wickets consistently throughout the day to compile 125. Leigh Jones (3-34) was the main wickettaker for the Bulls. Wantirna South made 234 against Bayswater Park, with Cameron Smith (78) and Michael McDonald (56) sharing a fourth-wicket partnership of 76. Justin Laughlin bowled three overs before dislocating his finger and returned later to finish with figures of 5-51 off 20 overs. — Tony Smith [YAR]

NBCF Gala Fundraising Success!! On Saturday 20th October, the Methven Professionals team and 251 guests donned a ‘touch of pink’ and came together for a fantastic evening of dinner, drinks, inspirational messages, and lots of fundraising at the York on Lilydale. A highlight of the evening was the guest speakers, Sharon and Allan Cohrs. It was an absolute privilege to hear Sharon’s story of breast cancer survival, followed by her journey conquering Mt Everest with her husband Allan! Greg Earney Director of Methven Professionals said “the support from local businesses and residents has been simply amazing and with their generous support we are extremely proud to announce that just over $17,100 was raised on the night for the National Breast Cancer Foundation”. It was a brilliant result and fantastic to see the community come together for a great cause!!

The Professionals Group Limited are Diamond Partners with the NBCF, donating a portion of every sale. So far the group as a whole have raised just over $2 Million dollars.
