None of our Business But….

CASEY councillor Damien Rosario was elected this year’s chairman of the Casey-Cardinia Library Corporation.
He hopes to link local schools with the online resources the libraries offer and promote community awareness.
“Schools can use these resources in classrooms for free,” he said.
“As a councillor I am facilitating conversations between school principals and the libraries.”
This week Star News also learnt a little bit about Cr Rosario’s fashion sense.
Opting for a man bag, his style choice is a Star Trek themed leather, across the shoulder.
Star News hopes this bag will live long and prosper.

A MAN recently felt the wrath of Dandenong Drug Court after bringing some of his stash to the courthouse.
The man, who is on a drug treatment court-order, arrived at court with a mints tin containing drug “residue” a defence lawyer told a judge.
He realised his mistake and threw the tin in a bin outside the court prior to being screened by court security.
Unluckily for him, an alert PSO retrieved the tin and arrested the man.

DANDENONG Magistrates’ Court dock and two custody officers were not enough to restrain one highly agitated offender.
The accused’s bail application came to an abrupt halt when he barrelled through the dock’s gate, bursting into the public gallery.
Fortunately, two police officers were in the courtroom and offered immediate reinforcement.
There was some doubt over whether the accused would find the inner calm to resume his quest for bail.

TWO Cranbourne stalwarts were warmly congratulated for their long-standing service to the community last month.
Retiring couple Barbara Maggs and Tony Jenner were acknowledged by Balla Balla Ward councillor Geoff Ablett at the February council meeting.
“A huge congratulations to Barbara Maggs and Tony Jenner on their retirement from organising the Cranbourne Christmas Motorcycle toy and food run for the past 31 years, delivering to those in need in our local community,” Cr Ablett said.
“You’re both champions!”

IT EMERGED at a function this week that Casey Mayor Sam Aziz was a contestant in a 1989 English speaking contest where former weather man Rob Gell was the MC.
The pair were reunited in Devon Meadows at the Australian Fresh Leaf greenhouse launch on Wednesday 2 March.
“Sam was a student then… never mind,” Rob trailed off, realising he was showing his age.
But Cr Aziz told him: “You only seem to be getting younger.”
