Macca’s gets new franchisee BY DAVID SCHOUT A YARRA Ranges local has bought the franchise rights for the controversial Tecoma McDonald’s restaurant — after the original franchisee pulled out. Businessman James Currie will be the franchisee for the Burwood Highway site after Howard Armitage — the son of Clive Armitage, the first McDonald’s franchisee in Australia — recently withdrew. Mr Currie said he was looking forward to opening the restaurant, with construction expected to start in May. ‘‘I’m a born and bred Victorian and have lived in the Yarra Ranges for over 15 years,’’ he said. ‘‘I love the area and the people, and as a local businessman I’d really like to play an active and supportive role in Tecoma.’’ Mr Currie would not answer whether the controversy surrounding the restaurant had weighed on his decision, but said he hoped ‘‘the community and I can work together moving forward’’. He also would not answer whether he had sought community feedback on the restaurant before making his decision. McDonald’s spokeswoman Skye Oxenham said there were ‘‘a number of

candidates interested in . . . the Tecoma location’’. She gave no indication as to why Mr Armitage had pulled out at such a late stage. Earlier this month, 3000 people marched through the streets of Tecoma against the site and urged McDonald’s hierarchy to meet with locals. Ms Oxenham, however, confirmed that a meeting would not be happening in the near future. No Maccas in the Hills spokesman Garry Muratore — who has previously labelled Ms Oxenham’s rhetoric as ‘‘at best delusional or at worst a corporate lie’’ — said he did not believe McDonald’s would actually begin construction in May. ‘‘We believe McDonald’s made this statement to draw attention to themselves after 3000 people walked through Tecoma and said ‘no’.’’ Mr Muratore said the protest march was ‘‘the largest gathering of people ever in the Dandenong Ranges’’. ‘‘McDonald’s can say what they like but the community is against this.’’ Despite the store’s imminent arrival in Tecoma, anti-McDonald’s support continues to rise.

Landowners hit with tall-grass fines to landowners, 100 of whom did not cut their grass in the specified time frame. The council sent out invoices to these landowners to cover the cost of maintaining the lawns for them, as well as contractor costs. Owner of Lilydale and Outer Eastern Slashing Service Tony Lander said contractor costs

YARRA Ranges landowners have been fined tens of thousands of dollars for not keeping their grass under 10 centiemtres long this fire season. Under fire prevention rules, the council can order residents to maintain their lawns to reduce the chance of causing a fire. This season the council issued 1400 notices

were typically $100-$200. Yarra Ranges executive officer of emergency management Kate Siebert said the council was relatively pleased with the result. ‘‘Given the council assesses more than 60,000 properties, it’s good to see the majority of landowners doing the right thing,’’ she said.

If you’re in two minds, leave early. The best way to prepare for this fire season is to stay informed and plan to leave early, before you see smoke or fire. Don’t wait and hope for the best. Plan to leave early: ü Talk to everyone you live with so you all know when you’re going to leave and where you’re going to go if a fire starts. ü Pack a relocation kit with important documents and essential items. ü Use more than one source of information for warnings.

At last, relief on the way BY DAVID SCHOUT

Just give us clarity, parents plead

PEOPLE with a disability and their carers are both excited and uncertain about what the National Disability Insurance Scheme will mean for them. Last Wednesday, locals with a disability, their carers and families met federal Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Carers Jan McLucas at a forum in Bayswater North to discuss how the scheme would benefit them. ‘‘As part of the NDIS, we will ask people with disabilities questions they haven’t been asked before,’’ Senator McLucas said. ‘‘It won’t be about ‘how do we keep you alive’; it’s about treating you as a person who wants to be included in society.’’ The NDIS is a new healthcare program introduced by the federal government that will change the way people with a disability and their carers are treated. It is one of the few policies on which the two sides of politics are unified in how they’ll implement it. Heathmont resident Woody Marriott, who at 18 months old was diagnosed with cerebellar ataxia, a nervous system disorder that affects balance and co-ordination, said years of broken promises had taken its toll. ‘‘I just

FOR one Montrose couple, the promise of the NDIS is not enough to assuage their fears of what lies ahead for their daughter. The couple,who want to remain anonymous, spoke with the Weekly at Wednesday’s forum about their concerns with the NDIS. The couple’s 26-year-old daughter has an intellectual disability. ‘‘One of our biggest concerns is working out long-term care for our daughter when we can no longer care for her,’’ they said. ‘‘We’re not sure at all if she’d survive in a community house. ‘‘She takes a lot of things on face value, which can be problematic. ‘‘If someone smiles at her or says some-

NDIS was something everyone should be aware of. In Victoria, the NDIS will be first launched in the Barwon area in July. From there, the government will rely on feedback to refine the scheme for other areas in the state.

Ministers haggle, patients wait

Foundation puts poverty on trial

WAITING lists for elective surgery at Maroondah Hospital have almost doubled in the past year. The latest state government figures show that on December 31 last year, 1156 patients were waiting to have an elective procedure at the hospital — compared with 641 patients at the same date in 2011. And while the state and federal governments continue to blame each other for the blowout, locals are losing out. Health Minister David Davis said while the federal government had backflipped on its plan to cut $107 million to Victorian hospital funding, the planned cut had still affected hospitals like Maroondah. ‘‘This savage cut was belatedly promised to be restored in February after extreme pressure on the federal government, but our hospitals have already scaled back their activity,’’ Mr Davis said. ‘‘It will take the hospitals some time to gear up again, and those cuts will show up in future quarterly reports.’’ Federal Health Minister Tanya Plibersek had earlier said Victorians were living in a ‘‘state of secrecy’’ and that earlier cuts by the state government were also to blame.

FOR Emma Jane Ryan, the long weekend wasn’t so much about rest and relaxation. Rather, it was an extra day to spread the word on ending poverty. As a group leader of Oaktree Foundation ambassadors, Ms Ryan has been playing an important role in raising awareness for the Roadtrip to End Poverty campaign, which culminated in a region-wide forum in Lilydale on Sunday. The 21-year-old Lilydale resident phoned schools and sent out flyers in preparation for the forum, which was run by the ambassadors themselves. ‘‘When I was in high school learning about other countries, it was troubling to learn about their struggles and the inequalities,’’ Ms Ryan said of why she got involved. ‘‘I wanted to have my voice heard and help others who are less fortunate.’’ The Roadtrip to End Poverty is an awarenessbased campaign that aims to demonstrate community support for a rise in the foreign aid budget to 0.7 per cent of gross national income by the year 2020. Currently, just 0.36 per cent GNI in Australia is given in foreign aid. Victoria has about 260 of the ambassadors,

FREE ePaper If you’re a female in business, you’re time-poor right? With competing demands from work, family, and friends, the idea of having more time in your day is often a lovely, but elusive, fantasy. Caren Hendrie (BA Hons, DFP, CFP) understands this because she’s lived it. Not only does she run a successful family business, she also keeps busy by raising a family, travelling, staying fit, catching up with friends, entertaining, writing, building a new house, and much more. She also claims to have created a recipe for the perfect lamb roast. Most importantly, she still has energy left at the end of each day. So how does she do it? Following the success of her recent main stage presentation at this year’s GO Festival, Caren has prepared an entertaining ePaper - 9.5 practical (and thoroughly road-tested) tips for finding more time to get it all done. You can download this FREE resource at www.hendrie.com.au along with some of Caren’s other publications.

Sunday’s political forum in Lilydale had a panel of five guest speakers, including federal MP Tony Smith, Evelyn MP Christine Fyffe and Greens Senate candidate Janet Rice discussing their thoughts on Australia’s foreign aid contribution. Over in Croydon, a less formal community support event was held. Ambassadors, including Ringwood East’s Holly Trenegeza, were at Croydon Memorial Pool liaising with visitors and cooking pancakes. ‘‘Our role as ambassadors is to talk to people and explain the issue,’’ Holly, 16, said. ‘‘About 70 of us were there talking about poverty, and cooking for everybody.’’ Holly, who attends Ringwood Secondary College, is vocal in her thinking on poverty. ‘‘It’s something I want to see changed in my generation,’’ she says. ‘‘I think we can eradicate extreme poverty in our lifetime. We are the first generation that can make a difference.’’

Singles mingle for a bigger goal BY YESSAR DAOU DON’T judge a book by its cover, so goes the adage — and it’s certainly personified by the Diamond Singles. Despite the name, the Maroondah-based social group is not so much about matchmaking as it is about fund-raising, with Maroondah Breast Clinic its key cause. They’ve just chosen to do so in a novel way — through organising singles events for those aged over 40 and encouraging social activities for singles in that age group. ‘‘It’s about trying to make a difference in the lives of others who have been touched by cancer,’’ club president Sharon Norris says. She says the name represents the different facets and colours in diamonds — just like in all people. ‘‘There are many mature singles who are looking to meet others in the same situation,’’ she says. ‘‘Everyone is a VIP. We’re trying to help two communities — singles that are over 40, and breast cancer sufferers.’’ Before forming Diamond Singles — run by an eight-member committee — Ms Norris was raising money for the clinic by hosting fund-raisers out of her backyard. ‘‘I was running morning teas, luncheons and gold

coin collections,’’ says the Croydon resident. ‘‘During the events we’d play games and other fun stuff like ‘pass the parcel’. I charged people for entering my home, pretty much.’’ Interestingly enough, Diamond Singles was started almost by accident, with Ms Norris’s intentions being to host a girls’ night out, before she and the other members changed their plans at the last minute. The night was first held in January and raised

$1200 for breast cancer research. The event is hosted by the Maroondah Sports Club, its main sponsor. This Sunday, Ms Norris and fellow committee members will host its second event and hope to have more than the 70 people who attended last time. Entry is $20 and runs from 7pm-11pm. To book, or help sponsor the event, call Ms Norris on 0404 225 785.

Hepatitis doctor sent to prison A CROYDON anaesthetist who infected 55 women with hepatitis C has been sentenced to 14 years jail, with a 10-year non-parole period. Dr James Peters, the former director of Croydon Day Surgery clinic, was last Thursday found guilty of negligently causing serious injury to patients by reusing syringes he used on himself. The Supreme Court heard that Peters, who has a history of narcotic abuse, injected himself with pre-filled syringes of Fentanyl — an opioid — before using the remaining drug on women undergoing pregnancy terminations. He infected 55 women with the potentially deadly blood disease between June 2008 and November 2009. In handing down his sentence, Justice Terry Forrest declared Peters ‘‘truly reprehensible’’ as he handed down the sentence, stating he had breached the trust every patient has in the doctors who treat them. — The Age

Coolest chic: a tribute to Gran BY YESSAR DAOU FINALLY having her lifelong dream come true ended up being something of a bittersweet moment for Katrina Wright. Just hours after the budding fashion designer from Heathmont found out she’d be flying to Sydney to compete in a nationwide showcase, she received the news that she’d lost the biggest influence on her career. ‘‘My inspiration is my nana; she was always a fashionista. But just after I received the email saying I was chosen, I got the news she’d passed away,’’ she says. That was back in January. Now, as the 32-year-old departs this month for Sydney and her part in Australia’s biggest emerging designer showcase, DEBUT, she chooses to see the situation positively. ‘‘From that day on, I knew it was meant to be,’’ she says. ‘‘Being selected was a nice tribute to her. She’s the reason I love fashion.’’ Ms Wright, who has worked for Jeans West, Just Jeans, Gaz Man and Myer, says she’s excited to showcase her own collection and label Mikat. ‘‘It’s such a massive opportunity being part of

a prestigious design competition,’’ says Ms Wright. ‘‘It gives me the chance to build my brand identity.’’ She explains her label’s name. ‘‘It came from my nickname Kat, and has the Italian word for ‘me’ in front of it,’’ she laughs. ‘‘It’s what my designs are about.’’ Ms Wright carries a notepad wherever she goes, believing you never know when ideas will crop up. ‘‘Inspiration comes to me at the most random times.’’ Ms Wright began designing after continually being disappointed with what the market offered. But she still works part-time at Country Road at Eastland shopping centre as a means of keeping up to date with current trends. ‘‘I felt constantly disappointed by the style of handbags and stuff out there. At least at Country Road I get to keep my finger on the pulse and interact with customers.’’ Created in 2006, DEBUT is biannual event that gives new apparel and accessory labels from Australia and New Zealand a chance to break into the highly competitive Australasian fashion industry.

The statistics so far this summer indicate that this has been the worst summer on record for drowning deaths. With 31 people drowning in December 2012, an increase from 28 for the same period in 2011 shows that of these unnecessary deaths, almost 20 per cent were children in the age group 0 – 14 years. With this in mind, 1 in 5 children will leave primary school this year without the skills to swim at least 50 metres or even stay afloat for two minutes, even if their life depended on it. The dedicated team at Kilsyth Centenary Pool are offering parents a cost effective way for children to gain the valuable life skills needed with their swim school classes. Classes range from 6 months of age right thru to adults and cater for all abilities. Staff are fully qualified and do ongoing assessments to make sure your child receives the best possible learning outcome for each individual stage. Lessons are conducted all year round and start from $9.50 per week and are direct debited. This cost also allows

free membership to the pool, including parents of children under 5 years of age. Some health insurance funds also offer a rebate for swimming lessons ranging from $150.00 - $200.00, so check your health fund to see if they offer this service. To register, contact the team at Kilsyth Centenary Pool on 9725 9411. Kilsyth Centenary Pool is located at 75 Hawthory Road, Kilsyth www.kilsythcp.com.au G5848521AA-a12Mar©FCNVIC

Mt Evelyn climbs another rung BY CHRIS ANDERSON AFTER 21 weeks of toil it all came down to the last day of play for Mt Evelyn or WarburtonMillgrove to secure a place in the DJ Strachan Shield finals. With Seville, Coldstream and Healesville all but assured in the top four, it was a battle between the Rovers and the Burras for the final position. Warburton-Millgrove travelled to Hoddles Creek, defending 191 on the lightning-quick Hoddles Creek ground. Sitting at 1-19 overnight, both sides were looking for a quick start, and it was the Burras who snuffed out two early wickets to have their finals aspirations on track. The Derix name is synonymous with cricket at Hoddles Creek, and it was fitting that brothers

Brenton and Jeremy combined for a gamechanging partnership. With disciplined batting, the Wombats moved confidently towards the winning target. The loss of Brenton Derix for 32 gave the Burras some confidence, but Jeremy Derix (102 not out) expertly anchored the chase to see the Wombats through to the target with five wickets in hand. So Mt Evelyn was assured it would take part in finals and easily accounted for Woori Yallock. After being 2-38 overnight, and in a strong position, the Tigers were rocked from the first over, as the brilliant Kane Jones captured three wickets before the first change of ends. At 6-43, the Tigers were going to battle to make the required 160 for victory. Dean Worlley (30) and Daniel Ryan ensured

the Tigers wouldn’t be completely embarrassed with a fighting 27-run partnership, but Jones would have nothing of a revival as he quickly extinguished the Tigers’ tail and finished with 7-38. The Tigers were all out for 87. Seville and Coldstream will enter the finals with confidence at different ends of the scale after their final-round clash. Seville not only sent a message to the Crocs, but the entire association as it made short work of their score. Posting an imposing 267 on day one, the Blues didn’t give Coldstream an inch as speedsters Matt Tilney (4-49) and Ishara Amerasinghe (3-19) made short work of the Crocs, bowled out for a paltry 118. In this Saturday’s semi-finals Seville is expected to host Coldstream while Healesville should play host to Mt Evelyn.

Cobras put all the puzzle pieces together KILSYTH Cobras men’s coach Grant Wallace looked at his team at the end of last season and decided he had to fix several shortcomings. The first was to find a ‘‘pass-first’’ point guard with court speed and defensive skills, the second was a back-up big man for star post players Auryn Macmillan and Tim Lang, and finally the Cobras needed an import who could give them a boost on both offence and defence. Wallace believes he has solved all three problems, signing Tiri Matsunda from Hobart to fill the point guard position while signing veteran centre Brad Bridgewater, and import guard E J Krusnyer to replace Garfield Blair. He compared Krusnyer to former SEABL grand final most valuable player Mike Kelly, who went on to win the NBL championship with South-East Melbourne Magic. ‘‘E J is going to be great in that role, he hustles hard and plays a very similar role to a Mike Kelly type player,’’ Wallace said. ‘‘He is a better shooter but not as big although he has the same competitiveness and will surprise a lot of people this year.’’ Bridgewater has turned up in peak condition

after having knee and wrist surgery in October. ‘‘He will play two to three minutes each quarter to rest our big guys,’’ Wallace said. ‘‘He is an athlete and can play above the rim. We will look for him to play quality minutes rather than big minutes.’’ Matsunda struggled to play extended minutes in Tasmania but will get the chance to start and be a major player with the Cobras. ‘‘He was probably underutilised in Hobart,’’ Wallace said. ‘‘They had a lot of good guards but when he came off the court we were always relieved because we couldn’t stay in front of him. ‘‘He is arguably the quickest player in the competition and will relish the opportunity to start. I think he too will surprise a lot of people.’’ Macmillan will rejoin the side when he finishes the NBL season with Wollongong Hawks. Wallace said Macmillan could return as early as round 3 but could miss six to seven games if the Hawks go deeper into the post-season. Emerging Cobras players Cam Johnson, Matt Cromarty and Kristian Williams have also made good improvement while Dan Briglia, Matt

Coming back: Kilsyth forward Auryn Macmillan will return to the Cobras in the early rounds of the season. Maden and David Moore have left the side along with import Zach Malvik. The Cobras men start their season against Nunawading Spectres at Nunawading Stadium on Sunday at 2.30pm.

Hawks face big challenge IT won’t be easy but Ringwood Hawks will set out to win back-to-back Big V state championship men’s basketball titles when the season begins on Saturday night. The Hawks will return eight of their championship-winning players, although the two omissions, forward Adrien Sturt and grand final most valuable player and import guard Skyler Bowlin, have resulted in many doubting whether the Hawks are good enough to win it again. Sturt spurned the Hawks and decided to join Bulleen Boomers while Bowlin took up a lucrative deal in Denmark. Hawks coach Ken Harrington said he was happy his side was being written off. “Teams like Corio Bay, Bulleen and Diamond Valley have been busy recruiting in the off-season and seem to have generated the most interest in preseason,’’ Harrington said. “We are happy if nobody rates us, it means we can just play hard and let other teams try to handle the expectations that we had on us last year.” Captain Willie Weimer and veteran Matt Snowball are both closing in on 300 Big V games for the Hawks while big men Shaun Clarke, Luke Egan, Mark Whitehead and import Sam Belt will all return. New import guard Bryan Dougher, shooter Michael Stellar and emerging guards Max Sutton and Chris Flack round out the side. Just to add to the challenges, Sutton, Snowball, Egan and Dougher have all battled injuries during the preseason but all are expected to be ready to play in round 1. Weimer said his side would fight out each and every game and still believed it had the talent to contend once again. “It’s a tough league and they will hunt us,’’ he said. ‘‘But our championship was very hard to get and we won’t give it up without a serious fight.” — Roy Ward The Big V season for all men’s and women’s competitions begins this Saturday night.
