Sobering note to revelry A successful Big Day Out 2009 was marred by the suspected drug overdose death of a 17-year-old female. Police repeated their Summadayze initiative using sniffer dogs to detect drugs before they were carried into the venue. Residents said noise and parking were better managed this year.

THE sun must have an element of control over the logical part of our brain. Last weekend, the temperature reached the high 30s and while some people chose to cool off at the beach or in airconditioning, a handful had other, more harmful ideas. Once again, a thoughtless person has used lighter fluid and turpentine to destroy bushland in City Beach. This comes just weeks after an arsonist took to Kings Park.

And about 70 people put their futures at risk at the Big Day Out in Claremont when they were charged with drug-related offences. Drugs can be lethal in any weather but combined with severe heat and crowds, the risk increases. Unfortunately, it appears to have proven fatal for one 17-year-old concert goer. There’s better things to do in the sun than light fires and dabble in drugs.

EVERY time I walk in to my local supermarket, I feel like Matt Damon in one of the Bourne movies. The first thing I do is check out where the closed-circuit TV cameras are. You see, I’m a lover of grapes. My first choice is those squashed by nubile young lasses somewhere in the hinterland of Margaret River and then lovingly poured into wine bottles. But this time of year I revel in the big bunches of succulent grapes that lie languidly in my corner store just waiting to be plucked and eaten. I’m the sort of guy who likes to pluck before I buy. That’s when the shop surveillance cameras start to freak me out. Is it stealing or shoplifting to eat a grape in the supermarket before you decide whether or not to purchase a bunch? Once upon a time, when you actually had shop assistants that assisted you, I can vaguely

remember Italian greengrocers seductively offering my mum a grape to try in the hope she would buy. (Not quite Caesar to Cleopatra but you know what I mean. She usually did, and so my love of this fruit began.) At the moment I’m lucky in that the piles of grapes at my local supermarket do not appear to be in the direct line of vision of any CCTV. Yet every time I surreptitiously pick a grape, it does indeed feel like the ‘forbidden fruit’ and I wait in fear for the

suburbs safer. Claremont Council will be installing nine new cameras around the Bay View Terrace shopping precinct. The new Multiplex and Hawaiian development will also have its own CCTV network so we can expect more cameras in Claremont than you’d find at an AFL fixture at Subiaco Oval. (Women I spoke to on Bay View Terrace welcomed the idea of more cameras, especially when informed that the digital technology ensures a much better quality picture. “I think it’s terrific for all those girls who have never got their photo in the newspaper social pages!” exclaimed one elegant lady.) Meanwhile, Subiaco Council has called for a feasibility study to be carried out so CCTVs can be placed the length and breadth of Rokeby Road and Hay Street. While not ostensibly as vain or fashion-conscious as Claremont consumers, the Subiaco Business Association still believes that the shoppers want more security in the area while sipping their skinny de-café lattes. George Orwell’s voice echoes through our suburbs murmuring, “I told you so!”

Ring the cops! We’ve got another grape grabber!” But if you live in the western suburbs you may as well get used to a life of constant surveillance. Both Claremont and Subiaco councils have indicated that they are prepared to invest heavily in CCTV technology in the belief that it will make these

Dead girl ‘may have panicked’ by denise s. cahill and michael gill PARKING and noise complaints stemming from the Big Day Out at Claremont Showground became trivial when Claremont councillor Anita Lorenz heard that a 17-year-old girl had died from a suspected drug overdose. “Some family is out there missing their daughter…I feel ill,” Cr Lorenz, who lives opposite the showground, said. The unconscious teenager was taken to the on-site first aid tent before being conveyed to Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, where she later died. A Police Media spokesman said officers sus-

pect the girl panicked when she saw police at the entrance to Claremont Showground and swallowed a number of ecstasy pills. Organised Crime Detectives are investigating and a post mortem will be conducted to determine the exact cause of death. Cottesloe Police Sergeant Jason Mercer said considering the excessive heat and humidity of Sunday afternoon, the crowd was “quite well behaved” during his shift. While a targeted operation involving officers from the Police Rail Unit resulted in about 70 drug-related charges, local officers issued one summons for drug possession and charged a man with stealing a purse.

Members of the crowd “rugby-tackled” the man as he allegedly tried to make off with the purse and security officers then held him until police arrived. Several underage concertgoers removed from licensed areas received move-on notices from Police and had to leave the venue. The Town of Claremont sparked panic last December when it refused an application to hold the event at its home of nearly 10 years, however the Department of Environment and Conservation overturned the decision. Cr Lorenz said noise levels were better than previous years and while she did not experience problems at her property, she had received a call

from a ratepayer about people parking dangerously outside their home. Graylands Road resident Erika Love, who attended the event, said residents near the showground had received two parking permits per property from the council. She said the initiative appeared to have worked although she suspected disabled parking bays near the venue had been used illegally. She said there were plenty of rangers and police issuing infringements. Have your say at

Waited for orders to evacuate KINGS Park Avenue resident Dorothy Smith received the shock of her life when flames appeared outside her apartment window a fortnight ago. “I walked into the kitchen about 6.40am and saw the first big pool of smoke go up, then a short while later, watched as the first fire trucks rolled along our street,” she said. “It was very scary. Until then, I had never considered that we could have a bushfire on our doorstop.” Later, she watched as embers and sparks jumped 150m, lighting a palm tree and shrubbery at the iconic blue boatshed opposite her apartment complex. Together with husband Alan, she wondered if the day would be their last in their home and what to take if the order was given to evacuate. “We were here throughout, not wanting to leave in case they did not let us back in,” Mrs Smith said. “I grew up in the country experiencing several bush fires, yet here, close to the river and City, we had a fire right next to us, so I was extremely concerned.” Mrs Smith praised the efforts of firefighters and police in the intense heat, the latter walking the streets to reassure residents while urging readiness to leave. For the Smiths, the decision to

Engagement ring lost AUSTRALIA Day ended on an unhappy note for Banksia Grove resident Melissa Seed when she realised she had lost her engagement ring when leaving Kings Park.

She said the ring had sentimental value and was distinctive because the band was bent. Call 0402 922 187.

They did not venture out until 3pm, when “things seemed to have settled down”, although flare-ups continued over the next 24 hours. “These people who light fires deserve huge punishment, but will probably never be caught,” she said. d304022

Subi dog attack worries by michael gill A VICIOUS fight between two dogs at Market Square Park has left Mosman Park resident Erin O’Loughlin feeling uneasy about venturing around Subiaco. Last Tuesday, Ms O’Loughlin was walking through the park opposite Subiaco Oval on her way to work about 9am when she saw a man walking two bull mastiff dogs on leashes. She said a golden retriever dog, not on a leash and belonging to a woman walking at the park, took off towards the two dogs. “Seconds later the larger brown dog had half the retriever’s face in its mouth,” she said. “The woman was small and petite, desperately tak-

ing on the large dog trying to make it release its jaws… the man obviously could not control his powerful dogs.” Ms O’Loughlin said she soon abandoned the idea of trying to separate the dogs as a nearby council worker who tried to do the same received bites to his hands and the retriever was in a vice-like grip. She said about 20 minutes went by before council staff took the woman, who had puncture wounds to her arms and hands, as well as her injured dog for medical attention. A spokeswoman for the City of Subiaco would not provide more details about the incident or respond to comments from Ms O’Loughlin that city staff should have responded sooner. “The city is aware of the incident and is currently

investigating the matter,” she said. The spokeswoman said the city would source statements from those involved and witnesses to help the city decide on “a course of action”. Ms O’Loughlin said when the bull mastiff freed the golden retriever, the man left the scene among the ruckus with his dogs and her search of nearby streets failed to find him. “There is debate over the woman’s dog not being on a lead, but if that was a child who ran up to the dog, everyone would agree the dogs are dangerous,” she said.

Joy, tears for new students

Have your say at

FIVE-year-old Oliver Clennett was in good company at Rosalie Primary School in Shenton Park yesterday, sharing the joy and in some cases the tears of thousands of children at the start of a new school year. Students were not the only new arrivals, with recent graduates, interstate and international recruits used to fill all of the state’s teacher vacancies, according to Education Minister Liz Constable. Several western suburbs schools also welcomed transplanted staff, such as former Subiaco Primary School principal Susan Goddard, who will lead Rosalie this year. Police are urging drivers to remember that the new term hails the return of 40km/h school zones, which operate from 7.30am to 9am and 2.30pm to 4pm on weekdays. Signs are posted to indicate the start and end points for the 40km/h speed limits.

Give kids a healthy start “It shows that even in schools that don’t have a canteen, you can play an active part, as parents have a very strong role in what their children eat,” she said. Mrs Cole makes sure her children tuck into a healthy lunch, with plenty of water at the ready and tailors a gluten free meal for Jacob who has enjoyed an energy boost since dropping the proteins from the menu two years ago. “As it’s a bit far to walk to school, they also participate in sports most afternoons or kick around a ball at the park. It all helps in terms of their longevity and overall wellbeing,” she said. Further tips offered by CCWA include avoiding packaged snacks high in fat and salt as well as cutting fruit and vegetables into fun shapes to entice fussy eaters. Ms Atkins said impressing healthy habits on youngsters would help them avoid the increased risk of cancer and chronic illness.

AS youngsters return to classrooms, the Cancer Council WA in West Perth has urged parents to make the start of the school year a healthy one for children. CCWA nutrition and physical activity manager Jenny Atkins said that with the number of overweight children doubling in the past decade, it was vital to improve eating and exercise habits. “Providing a diet rich in fruit and vegetables is one of the most important ways parents can help ensure their children remain healthy,” she said. “Fruit, vegetables and water should be ‘must-haves’ in lunchboxes.” One mother putting these tips into practice is Floreat resident Jo Cole with her three children Jacob (9), Adele (7) and Sam (5). Part of the nutrition committee at the Holy Spirit Catholic School in City Beach, Mrs Cole helps develop healthy recipes for fellow parents and provides nourishment tips in newsletters.

Council lifts ban on child photo by michael gill A SNAPSHOT of children in suburbia originally dropped from a Subiaco Library exhibition is now on show, to the delight of photographer Nicole Boenig-McGrade. Subiaco council decided to exclude the image of the two children with their shirts off from a collection of prints by the artist because of recent controversy regarding photos of children. The Australia Council introduced new protocols this year for artists applying for Federal Government grants when working with youngsters, after photos of nude children by Bill Henson caused uproar in Sydney last year. Subiaco Deputy Mayor Andrew McTaggart said since receiving public feedback and advice from the peak body for the arts, the council had decided to reinstate the photo. “The City erred on the side of caution in this instance, which is understandable given the history of the debate around photographs of children,” he said. While the Federal protocols do not apply to the picture taken by Ms Boenig-McGrade, who is a commercial photographer, the photo sparked interest after a blog entry and an open letter to the Arts Council of Australia expressed concerns that the pro-

tocols could inhibit artistic freedom in general. “I’m making a point that we need to keep that artistic freedom of speech, as once you put on limitations and silence artists, you can ruin the history of today for future generations,” she said. Surprised at the level of interest in the slice-of-life photo, the mother-of-two said she had not set out to cause any backlash for the City, as she appreciated the opportunity to display her works. “I never actually mentioned Subiaco in my letter, and I can understand that they don’t want

to upset the public,” she said. “I love what I do and I’m shocked that anything I would do is offensive to anyone...I just think its wonderful people can see it.” She snapped the commissioned black and white photo depicting Australian suburban life in 2006. Ms Boenig-McGrade won the People’s Choice award for an entry in the City of Subiaco Photographic Awards in 2005. Her works will remain on display until Friday, February 20. Have your say at

Christmas, when it is not so easy to come by, and councillors seem happy to keep it that way,” chief executive Graeme Simpson said. “Everyone used to get it some years ago, but it was negotiated out for office workers as they are mostly senior positions now.” However, the policy should be reviewed and the bonuses possibly incorporated into employee wage agreements, according to Shire president Brian Kavanagh. Peppermint Grove was among two of seven western suburbs councils to award bonuses last year.

“There is no facility for the Town to pay Christmas bonuses to any of its staff,” Cambridge governance manager Neil Costello said. Town of Claremont Mayor Peter Olson said some staff received bonuses if they had met certain performance indicators outlined by CEO Arthur Kyron. However, he said Mr Kyron had to work within the town’s budget and bonuses differed for each individual. Mr Olson said he was unsure how many staff members received bonuses last year and Mr Kyron, who had the information, was on leave.

STAFF at the Shire of Peppermint Grove received an extra two weeks’ pay as a Christmas “performance” bonus, despite the financial crisis threatening program and job cuts elsewhere in the State. Council unanimously approved the bonus, as per previous years, after finance manager Chris Howard reported that operational staff performed in a “satisfactory manner” with “very good” service delivery. Work crews responsible for park and garden maintenance, rubbish collection and one administrative officer overseeing the Neighbourhood Watch program received the bonus. “The work crews like to have that money available at

Shire president Brian Kavanagh.

Postal voting gets thumbs down CLAREMONT Mayor Peter Olson has baulked at suggesting the council manage postal voting at election time, but says it is costing the council too much money. Mr Olson said it was unfair that the WA Electoral Commission had the monopoly on counting postal votes for councils, but he had not investigated the cost of Claremont taking control of the process. “If we have to do it that involves staff and staff time, and it takes them away from their normal duties,” he said. WA Local Government Association President Bill Mitchell said local governments should have a choice to complete the process internally to provide competition for the WA

Electoral Commission. Under the Local Government Act 1995, the WA Electoral Commission is “statutorily tasked” with the conduct of postal elections. A WA Electoral Commission spokeswoman said benefits of the organisation managing the process included that it ensured the integrity and independence of the election that was “highly cost-effective” and allowed economies of scale. The spokeswoman said a statutory body with extensive experience in processing elections completed the election. She said the cost for councils depended on the size of the council or ward, the type of election, candidate numbers and advertising.

Bonus for selected staff

“In conducting postal elections the WA Electoral Commission charges direct costs only, with a small overhead on staff time. There is no profit component in the cost.” Cr Mitchell said Perth’s council with the highest population, the City of Stirling, paid $350,000 every second year for an election. “There’s the cost of letters going out and then coming back in, and then counting the votes,” he said. Town of Mosman Park Mayor Ron Norris said the council was against postal voting because of the cost and low participation. “In-person voting is best in Mosman Park. We handle the absentee votes because it is more cost effective and generally effective.”

DECISION REVERSED The City of Subiaco reversed its decision not to show a photo of two young children playing in a suburban street.

Camera trial in Subi ‘welcome’ PEDESTRIANS in the heart of Subiaco would welcome a surveillance camera trial but perceived the area as crime-free during daylight hours, a straw poll in Hay Street last week revealed. Most were unaware of the recent increase in petty theft and street crime, saying they felt safe on the streets. Daglish property owner Pauline Bogle believed Subiaco was a safe area but perhaps less so in the early hours of the morning when her two grown sons were likely to be out. “I have always felt safe here during the week and walking around at night, but am a bit older so usually home before midnight. “Cameras are a great deterrent, but I worry about the expense to ratepayers, preferring Subiaco Council spend that money on keeping facilities like Lords and the markets open,

which keeps locals here and troublemakers out.” Crime appears non-existent in Subiaco, according to 18-year-old athlete Jared Bezuidenhout. “I train near here and am not at all concerned about crime, as it is much safer than home in Warnbro,” he said. “Surveillance cameras would not bother me, as I am not doing anything wrong.” Cottesloe councillor Jay Birnbrauer said he had never “had any reason to feel unsafe” when catching the train to Subiaco to catch

up with friends and shop once a fortnight. But he endorsed the camera trial being considered by Subiaco Council and hoped to do the same in Cottesloe. “People are often concerned about their privacy being invaded by cameras and I feel the same when people don’t respect mine, but I don’t believe this would as it is surveillance of an open, public area,” Cr Birnbrauer said. Burglaries dropped last week, but robberies continued to be high from Friday through to Sunday, times when surveillance could prove useful, according to Subiaco Senior Sergeant Vic Hussey. “We would welcome cameras as we are trying to use every single tool we can find in the box,” he said. “And I can’t help thinking that cameras could have helped us identify more offenders when we had motorcycle gangs in the area recently.”

POLICE are stopping scooter and motorbike riders to check for stolen engine components and warn of the risk of theft, following an escalation in local vehicle theft rates. None of the 31 stopped on Thomas Street on Thursday were stolen, but two riders were charged with having no licence and another fled police. Thieves find scooters easy pickings, filling the gap created when car immobilisers became compulsory. Thieves often jump on for a joyride then dump it around the corner, or use a screwdriver in the ignition lock and ride off, according to Subiaco officer-incharge Vic Hussey. “With factors such as the rising cost of fuel, scooters are more common than ever and comprise roughly half of all our vehicle thefts,” he said. “That is a concern but the challenge is that scooters are a very easy form of transport and rarely secured properly, either left on the footpath or with the keys still in the ignition.” Stolen scooters are also easily broken down for spare parts. A strong cable lock is advised to deter thieves.

western view CCC replies to Tennant BRIAN Tennant (WSW, January 27) asked why no criminal prosecutions had been made in the Mallard matter by the Corruption and Crime Commission. The published report on the Commission’s investigation into the Mallard matter expressed six opinions of misconduct against the two main police officers involved in the Mallard investigation, and two against the DPP lawyer who prosecuted the case. The report also recommended that the Commissioner of Police and DPP consider taking disciplinary action against the public officers concerned. These opinions and recommendations were reached by retired NSW Supreme Court judge, Acting Commissioner John Dunford QC, at the conclusion of hearing evidence from 47 witnesses over 65 days of public hearings and considering the huge volume of material available on the Mallard matter. As someone from outside the state who has had no involvement in the Mallard matter over the years, Mr Dunford undertook his role conscientiously and with vigour. While the CCC can recommend charges, there needs to be sufficient evidence to support a criminal prosecution with a reasonable prospect of conviction to warrant such a recommendation. Having carefully considered all the evidence, Mr Dunford obviously concluded that recommendations of disciplinary action were the most appropriate response. Mike Silverstone, Executive Director, Corruption and Crime Commission.

Excitement at guest speaker MOMENTUM Women’s Forum is thrilled to share with you that Her Excellency Governor-General Quentin Bryce will be attending the International Women’s Day Luncheon as the guest speaker. We are especially excited because it is the first time she will be speaking in Western Australia and, also, because her appointment as the first female governor-general of Australia is an important milestone for all women. Her message that women “can do anything, be anything” encapsulates the spirit of the luncheon. The luncheon, to be held on March

6 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, is in support of the Women’s Council for Family and Domestic Violence Services. The winner of MWF’s Most Inspiring Women of the Year award will also be announced at the luncheon. Barbara McNaught, Director, Momentum Women’s Forum, Applecross.

WA should take nuclear waste VALERIE Glauser has raised the matter of storage of nuclear waste (WSW, January 27). Western Australia has enormous areas of desert that are geologically stable and are ideal for the storage of nuclear waste. Unfortunately, the loony left is opposed to Australia accepting nuclear waste from other countries. These same people have deprived WA of billions and billions of dollars of income. Just imagine what could have been done with that income in the form of schools, hospitals, railways, public housing, etc. The list is mind-boggling. And would that not have been preferable to countries like Russia putting their waste into metal drums and dropping it in the ocean to be left to eventually rust and escape into the sea? At least with all of it in WA, the

whole world would know where it was, and could be confident that none would fall into the wrong hands, or escape into the environment. John Skevington, Cottesloe.

Too high a cost for nuclear power IN his recent letters to the Western Suburbs Weekly, Robin Linke gives his wholehearted support to nuclear power stations in Australia, the mining of uranium in Australia and the importation and storage of nuclear waste in Australia. These are really three separate issues, and in the interests of presenting clear information to your readers, I will consider them separately. Firstly, nuclear power stations. Countries that have chosen to generate some of their electricity requirements by nuclear power have their own strategic reasons. Robin alludes to this when he writes: “The Swiss are smart… (by using nuclear power) they don’t have to rely on Russian gas to keep warm.” Some countries produce nuclear bombs, and can integrate the nuclear power industry with their nuclear bomb industry. So what is the strategic need for nuclear power in Australia if we don’t want nuclear bombs and we don’t use Russian gas? Robin invokes the spectre of glob-

al warming as justification for generating a significant proportion of Australia’s electricity requirements using nuclear fuel rather than fossil fuels. This is a popular argument in the nuclear power industry, but rather dubious given the high degree of uncertainty as to the extent of global warming. It’s hard to convince people that they should introduce nuclear power, with its attendant waste disposal and security problems, into Australia in order to solve a problem that isn’t affecting anyone. Next, mining uranium in Australia. Well, let’s not confuse this issue by even talking about nuclear power. Uranium ore is just another hazardous substance, like lead or nickel ore, but more so. The mining and shipment of it simply requires high standards of compliance with well-understood safety procedures, such as those that protect ports like Esperance from lead pollution. The environmental effects of the extraction of very large amounts of water from the Great Artesian Basin to service the copper and uranium

mine at Olympic Dam have been determined by experts, and their advice ignored. This would have happened whether or not there was uranium in the ore, so really it has nothing to do with the uranium, and more to do with good governance of the mining industry generally in order to minimise environmental damage. That shouldn’t be hard. And finally, importing and storing nuclear waste in Australia. The reason other countries want to send their nuclear waste to Australia is that it is a hot potato. Some of it is very toxic, for a very long time. It comes in different types and concentrations, and some of it emits such high-energy radiation that it can degrade the containers it is stored in. Instead of accepting a large amount of money to store this stuff, let’s find a safe way for West Australians to earn $3 billion a year. Or just be happy with what we’ve got. It’s not so bad here is it? Lee Hemsley, Shenton Park.

Getting their hands dirty by denise s. cahill O MANY Mosman Park residents, Leah Knapp is the saviour for the town’s natural habitats and open spaces. However, the new council sustainability officer says she is simply on board to coordinate work in the area and it is the volunteers getting their hands dirty and really making a difference. Ms Knapp, of Fremantle, said her most important role was to ensure the council, its staff, residents and contractors were in


constant contact and communicating. Mosman Park introduced the new role, and in October hired former Murdoch University student who holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with honours in sustainable development. And 2009 has already proved to be a busy year with the town recently releasing a Bush Management Plan to restore natural bushland off Fairbairn Street. Ms Knapp said volunteers from the area had already weeded a significant part of the area classified in the plan as “good� and Conservation Volunteers Australia members were working on the more degraded area.

“At the moment this is my main project but that will change because the first year will be the hardest and most expensive,� she said. “Years two and three will be more about maintaining the area.� Ms Knapp said natural areas in Bayview Park were also being reviewed so a bush management plan could be established and the city had recently signed on for the Cities for Climate Protection that involved collecting data on the town’s ecological footprint. Mosman Park resident Judy Watt said it was positive move by the council to, first, agree to put a management plan in place for natural

areas and then employ someone to facilitate it. Ms Watt said she also hoped Ms Knapp would be able to attract more volunteers to regular workdays on the last Sunday of every month from 8am. Volunteers are not required to have any formal knowledge or training however, some have completed a Bush Regeneration Course. Ms Knapp, residents and volunteers from Conversation Volunteers Australia will meet at the footpath off Fairbairn Street on February 7 and 8 to complete more weeding in the area. For more information, call Ms Knapp on 9384 1633.

Charity chorus to raise funds by denise s. cahill MUSICIAN Sam Parry had “jam sessions” with friends during school holidays to cure boredom but then developed an urge to organise something bigger, so he developed the WA Charity Orchestra and Chorus. The young group performed for the first time last year and raised $8500 for Princess Margaret Hospital. They will perform at the Perth

Concert Hall on Monday, February 9 at 7pm to raise more money for the Subiaco hospital. Sam said he visited various schools, the WA Academy of Performing Arts and the University of WA to poach musicians for the group and finished with 80 people in the orchestra and 85 in the chorus. The 18-year-old said all members volunteered their time and had been rehearsing during the holidays. “I have learnt other skills from

last year’s concert so this year will be a bit different,” he said. “We got $8500 last year so we are trying to do betetr than that this year.” He donated last year’s total to the children entertaining room known as the Megazone at Princess Margaret. The concert will feature works from composers Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, Dukas and Wilberg as well as familiar sounds from Star Wars and The Planets. Call BOCS 9484 1133.

For movie night organiser Dianne Scott, this will be her third year involved in the ride, this year captaining the Red Ink Homes team. Mrs Scott first became involved in Ride for Youth after the suicide of her son Matt at 18. “A few friends told me about it,” she said. “It’s been a great motivator for me and this year I introduced a friend to the ride as well.” Mrs Scott said that alerting the public to the issue of youth suicide was an important part of her role on the ride. “On the way, we send representatives from each team into schools to talk to students,” she said.

Valentines Day 14th February

Jamie passes on his tennis passion by louise bettison YEARS spent helping children and adults learn the game of tennis paid off for Jamie Venerys, when he was named Peppermint Grove Citizen of the Year on Australia Day. Mr Venerys started playing tennis at age five, using his mother’s racquet to hit the ball against every possible surface and gradually working his way up to a State junior ranking. “I remember hitting against anything I could find, from the garage wall to kitchen cupboards, and that repetition and practise turned me into a tennis player,” he said. “I just love the game and the people I meet, having made some really good friends through this sport.” However, an injury and growing love of surfing diminished the allure of competing, and at age just 14, he turned his hand to coaching. Now holding a commerce degree and managing clinics at Peppermint Grove and Mosman Park tennis clubs, he is focused on “growing the sport” and his contagious enthusiasm is boosting local memberships. “My philosophy is that in simply picking up a racquet and having a go, everyone can be a tennis star,” he said. “But the point is that tennis is a community-based sport and families can play together.” Mr Venerys was the sole nominee for the three annual awards honouring a Peppermint Grove citizen, young citizen up to 24 years old, and community group. ■ Council also voted to present a Certificate of Recognition to the family of the late Bob Falkner, citing his dedicated, consistent contribution to Neighbourhood Watch.

Important for people to become involved BEING awarded Cottesloe Citizen of the Year was humbling for Chris Wiggins, despite his consistent efforts to guide local planning strategies to residents’ benefit. “I was brought up to think you should take an interest and put something back into your community, and that it is important to the democratic system for people to become involved,” he said. Foreshore building heights, budgets and the tri-area library are just some of the issues the 12-year Cottesloe resident has addressed council on, more so since becoming president of action group SOS Cottesloe in 2007. His citation on Australia Day described “tireless contributions” to the town, including input to the disability services advisory committee “typifying the best of the Cottesloe community”. ■ Seven environmentally aware parents associated with North Cottesloe Primary School were also commended, with the Community Group of the Year award. Since forming EcoSmart in May 2007, they initiated projects from worm farms to a waste audit and organic vegetable garden, emphasising the need for children and adults alike to act now to conserve the environment for the future. “As we all know, the environment is moving rapidly up the agenda of worldwide and local concern,” group member Sally Grainger said. “We are certain this award will

further stimulate and promote enthusiasm towards our planned projects for 2009, and hope it helps raise the eco-awareness and participation of our students in their planet’s future.” EcoSmart plans to expand its organic waste and garden projects this year, strengthen links to other like-minded environmental groups and schools, and local businesses.

Eleven from western suburbs

Jamie Venerys, Peppermint Grove Citizen of the Year.


ELEVEN people who live or work in the western suburbs were included on the Australia Day 2009 Honours List, announced last week. Kevin Hammond, of Crawley, James Gill, of Nedlands, and Professor Lynda Beazley from the University of WA were appointed Officers of the Order of Australia. Nedlands resident Edward Graham and Professor Warren Kerr,

who works at a Subiaco-based architect company, were appointed Members of the Order of Australia while Susan Glasfurd, of Swanbourne, Dennis O’Meara, of Dalkeith, and Robert Weiland, of Claremont were awarded Medals of the Order of Australia. Athletes Steve Hooker, Katrina Porter and Elise Rechichi also awarded Medals of the Order of Australia.

Mothballed sports club needs lifeline, say readers THE majority of online Western Suburbs Weekly readers want the City of Subiaco to rescue the mothballed Lords Sports Club. A recent story about the council’s decision to proceed with advertising a business plan for six weeks to gather public comment on the future of the venue has prompted a strong response from readers. The plan, available on the council’s website, involves the prospect of the city running a recreation centre at the

venue for up to 10 years. Leading the online charge was Lords Action Group co-ordinator Stef Hayward who said that retaining a local sporting complex could help tackle issues like obesity and skin cancer. “Economic changes mean the Lords site may well be left empty if it is not used, and deliver no rent at all.” Subiaco ratepayer Sharlene Lee

said her family regularly attended the centre and hoped the council would soon resolve the situation, while Polly Dorn said the complex just needed management and renovation to continue its service to the community. Subiaco Councillor Lynley Hewett also posted comments on the website about the role of the club in tackling obesity and suggestions that rent hikes

imposed by the council had affected Lords’ profitability. “Lords gym was said to be nonviable even in boom times as far back as 2002 prior to a proposed routine rent review required by the lease,” she said. The city will accept comments on the business plan until 4pm Tuesday, March 3.

JOHN Forster has family connections to City Beach but it is the character and feel of his neighbourhood that has kept him there for the past 22 years. In a recent Western Suburbs Weekly survey, Mr Forster was among the majority of local respondents who believed they lived in an excellent neighbourhood where they could stay forever. Mr Forster said his father was the first person to build a home in South City Beach, near Oceanic Drive. He said he moved in to Sellenger Court 22 years ago and had been the Neighbourhood Watch representative for his street for the past seven years. “We have good neighbours who we have Christmas parties with,” Mr Forster said.

³Simply Unforgettable´

“We just talk about old times. Everyone looks out for each other.” Of the Western Suburbs Weekly readers who responded to the survey, 64 per cent said they lived in an excellent neighbourhood where they could stay forever, compared to 44 per cent of the outside population. Sixty six per cent of locals surveyed chose their home suburb because of its character and feel. Mr Forster said he walked his two dogs in two nearby parks and his stepchildren grew up in the family friendly street. “You get the odd yahoos coming through but that happens anywhere, it’s very peaceful normally,” he said. ■ Your Local Listening Post is set to become a feature of the Western Suburbs Weekly throughout 2009.

CANCER patient Roger Constable and his wife May want to help themselves and others with the justestablished Western Suburbs Prostate Cancer Support Group. Mr Constable said that after being diagnosed in 2007, there was little support to help him deal with the various treatment options and little community support for his wife. While still undergoing treatment, the Floreat resident has affili-

ated the group with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia and now needs members. The first meeting is on Wednesday February 11 at the Wembley Community Centre from 7pm. Mr Constable said he encouraged men to bring their partners and arrive at 6.30pm if they wanted

to chat before the meeting. “During such a difficult time, the experience, understanding and advice that a support group can offer is truly invaluable to anyone who has been affected by a diagnosis of prostate cancer,” he said. Call or text message Mr Constable on 0404 985 809.

Students build up a career FOURTEEN WA high school students got a taste of work as an architect at the University of WA during the school holidays. The students from John XXIII College, Christ Church Grammar, Shenton College, St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School and Australind received a brief that involved designing a courtyard for a new high school in Butler. The gifted teenagers, some aspiring architects, spent four days on the project and received advice from

UWA employees Sophie Giles and Kate Sloss as well as teachers Dr Annette Pedersen and Jean Astbury. Students learnt to draw in AutoCAD, designed a piece of substantial landscape architecture, created a model of their designs and were involved in an architectural design jury session with university students. Dr Pederson established the initiative three years ago with Professor William Taylor from UWA to expose students to the course.

Buns to boost children’s minds by michael gill HEALTHY hot cross bun sales at Coles Supermarkets lead to healthier schoolchildren with the Red Cross Good Start Breakfast Club. This year, the company will donate $250,000 from Easter bun sales to the initiative, which gives primary school children across the nation free breakfasts and nutritional advice. Coles West Leederville store manager Terry Williams said the program proved a good fit for shops to help youngsters get a nutritious start to their day. “Obviously as a company we try and do what we can for organisations like Red Cross and this is an ideal opportunity with Easter buns as they are a huge seller,” he said. “It allows us to give back to the community that supports us with their custom.” With the Dieticians Association of Australia suggesting one in four children skip breakfast daily, the breakfast club program will benefit many young minds. Red Cross spokesman Shaun Hazeldine said the project was a hit with close to 80 per cent of

teachers at participating schools, who had reported an improvement in student’s concentration levels. Mr Williams said the West Leederville store expected to sell plenty of buns to help

the program this year. “The most popular is still the regular fruit bun, we have other varieties like choc-chip and extra fruit but the standard fruit bun outsells the rest 10 to one,” he said.

NEW life saving equipment donated to Princess Margaret Hospital is at the ready for hundreds of youngsters treated at the intensive care unit. Funded by a gala ball held last year by West Perth-based charity HeartKids WA, the $25,000 portable ventilator provides filtered air to patients when moving between wards. PMH clinical nurse manager Katherine Craig said the paediatric intensive care unit would put the device to use to treat about 800 infants and children each year. “This is the most current portable ventilator, which can be used on children through to adults,” she said. “It’s widely used in emergency departments around the state as well as by the Royal Flying Doctor Service.” The added benefit of a long battery-

life enables use of the unit on patients being transported between hospitals without the need for a power supply. HeartKidsWA spokeswoman Fran Maunton said last year’s ball had proved “a tremendous success”, raising $50,000, and the group had started gearing up for the 2009 event. TV personality Simon Reeve will serve as emcee for the From the Heart Gala Ball at the Sheraton Hotel’s Golden Ballroom on Saturday, March 14. “The key function of our organisation is providing emotional support to families who are living with congenital heart disease,” she said. “With one in 100 Australian babies born with congenital heart disease, there is a serious need for this support.” Visit

DOES wearing a yellow vest give people the ability to do whatever they want, and when did West Australians decide that industrial activity was the ultimate in life? Claremont artist George Egerton-Warburton set out to test the theories with a series of experiments used as inspiration for a new group exhibition at Fremantle Arts Centre. Yellow Vest Syndrome runs until March 29 and features works by 29 renowned and emerging artists. Artists and academics will discuss the syndrome and distinguishing features of West Australian art in a complimentary forum, Donning the Vest, on March 14.

Saleh swears he’s true blue OMEDIAN Akmal Saleh clearly remembers when, at age 11, he and his family emigrated to Australia. The Sydney comedian said the experience was one of his most vivid memories. “My parents didn’t tell us that we were moving to Australia,” Saleh said. “They told us we were going on holidays to Alexandria. “I thought ‘if we’re going to Alexandria, why are we taking 22 bags?’ ” Saleh said landing in 1970s Australia was like landing on another planet. “In the ’70s, there weren’t many people here in Australia, while in Cairo it was overpopulated,” he said. “I thought, ‘oh my God, Australia is closed!’” Saleh said he soon found plenty of humour in his new surroundings. “A lot of our neighbours were working class and spoke with that typical (in nasal twang) ‘How ya goin?’,” Saleh said. “I found that quite funny. “Egyptian people are funny too, but in a completely different

way. Australia is a big country with plenty of space for everyone, and I think this has influenced Australian people’s humour, as well as their easygoing attitude.” He recently released a DVD Live and Uncensored of a performance at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre.

Saleh visits WA this week for several shows, accompanied by his comedian mate Joel Ozborne. “We travel together well and it’s important to have someone you like with you on tour,” he said. “At each show we have a segment together when we bring $2 stuff that we got from St Vinnies that day.” ■ Saleh will perform at the Regal Theatre in Subiaco on Saturday.

Passionate tale under stars A Opera will give local audiences a free performance of The Elixir of Love under the stars at 8.30pm on Saturday, February 7. Opera in The Park, which takes place in Supreme Court Gardens, has become an annual highlight with a diverse range of audience members flocking to see what the prestigious arts company has in store for them. This year will mark the debuts of young WA artists Roberto Abate and Sitiveni Talei, who will star alongside popular local singer Robert Hofmann. Also featured in the production is Perth singer, Penelope Reynolds.


Penelope Reynolds d296247

A veritable veteran of local opera, Reynolds said she particularly loved the yearly outdoor event as it gave her, and other people’s, children the chance to watch and experience opera. “There is always children milling and dancing around, and that is fabulous. It really adds to the atmosphere,” she said. This year’s performance is sure to be a little more joyful than last year’s Helpmann Award-winning production of Madama Butterfly. “The Elixir of Love is a lovely, light-hearted opera,” Reynolds said. “It is very passionate in moments and it is a lovely one for the outdoors. I can imagine lots of

champagne corks popping.” Reynolds said that as a seasoned performer, she had the skills to tackle the challenge of singing opera outdoors. “There is no difference between preparing for a show at somewhere like His Majesty’s Theatre or for a free outdoor concert,” she said. “They are all at the same level, but they just require different skills, like being able to use a head microphone and being able to control your voice without the feedback monitors. “Also, it is harder to tell how the audience is responding outdoors; you have to hope that they are enjoying it, which they usually are – fingers crossed.”

Debut direction EALING with the sudden death of a family member is a dreadful experience, but it can also be a cathartic one, says Kate Cherry. Cherry is about to make her directorial debut for Black Swan State Theatre Company with the one-woman play, The Year of Magical Thinking, as part of the 2009 Perth International Arts Festival. The stage adaptation of Joan Didion’s best-selling, Pulitzer Prize-nominated memoir chronicles a year of the writer’s life in which she transcends the tragedy of losing her husband to a heart attack and dealing with her daughter’s life-threatening illness by navigating through her imagination. The subject matter strongly resonates with Cherry who lost her own father to a heart attack when she was just 20. Cherry’s mother was also 20 when her father died suddenly of heart failure. “It really spoke to me, not so much about grief, but about surviving,” Cherry said. “I think theatre explores survival so brilliantly because like life, theatre is ephemeral. “Canvas lasts, cinema lasts, so theatre’s the perfect form to explore this story.”


Sandra Giles, Desma Mitchell, Ray Lange,Dr Margaret Pride and Tim Strahan. d304027

Director Kate Cherry, Helen Morse and Iain Grandage.

Playing Didion is Australian stage and screen veteran Helen Morse, with the musical score composed by cellist Iain Grandage. The collaboration marks the fourth time Morse has worked with Cherry – appointed Black Swan’s artistic director early last year. The pair also worked together for Cherry’s debut at the Melbourne Theatre Company. “She’s (Morse) the perfect person to play Joan as there is

a remarkable physical resemblance between the two women and they have very similar sensibilities as artists. “Both have exquisite attention to detail and shape emotional events with a real sense of clarity and precision.” When asked if she had caught Robyn Nevin’s performance in the Cate Blanchett-directed Sydney Theatre production on the east coast last year, or perhaps Vanessa Redgrave’s in d296225

the Broadway version, Cherry said she never saw other productions of works she was directing. “As soon as I read the book about two-and-a-half years ago, I said to Helen, ‘I want to share this with you’,” she said. “There wasn’t even a play in existence then. And then suddenly, there was and I thought this was too perfect an opportunity to pass up.” ■The Year of Magical Thinking runs at UWA’s Dolphin Theatre, Nedlands, from February 7 to 25.

Popular concert an unusual mix PIRATES, belly dancers and the odd flamethrower will take over the Octagon Theatre at the University of WA for the annual summer picnic concert this Saturday. The popular concert is the culmination of the summer school program run by UWA Extension, and is usually a sell out, according to program manager Sanchia Robinson. UWA music lecturer Margaret Pride has conducted the summer school choir since it began 10 years ago, and said it presented challenges as well as much fun and laughter. “Any time you bring a

hundred people of varying vocal talent and knowledge together for so few rehearsals, it makes for an interesting concert but we have found a formula that works,” she said. “Some people enjoy it so much they come back year after year, while others come along with a friend, like our New Yorker who is only visiting Perth for six weeks.” The choir’s repertoire includes sea shanties, pieces by Gilbert and Sullivan, and more contemporary songs. Tickets are $39 and are available from UWA Extension, on 6488 2433.

Where least expected by liam ryan OR the next few weeks, public spaces in the CBD will be unwittingly stomped on by the eager feet of performers who will bring contemporary dance to the city’s wandering masses – whether they like it or not. The improvised performances, cooked up by the aptly titled collective Anything is Valid Dance Theatre (AIVDT), are intended to let shoppers in the Hay and Murray Street malls taste-test the oft-misunderstood world of contemporary dance. AIVDT co-director Serena Chalker said the new show, They’ll Be Dancing in the Streets, partly took its cue from the where-did-they-come-from tradition of internet-organised flash-mobs, where spontaneous shows or groups of people appear to materialise from nowhere in public spaces. “We want to increase the public awareness of contemporary dance by


taking it out of traditional theatre venues,” she said of the street-based improvised performances. “There is a bit of a misunderstanding as to what contemporary dance is so this is a way of demystifying it.” The four dancers taking it to the streets are all WAAPA graduates and Chalker said audience reactions to the past high-quality outdoor performances, though often unpredictable, had been quite positive. But beyond the pure entertainment, Chalker also sees the greater good in taking performance from its home in the black boxes of theatres and fusing it with the everyday ebb and flow of city life. It is also a way of bringing life and vitality to neglected city spaces that remain relatively untouched by the energy coursing through the local art scene. Shoppers may stumble upon the shows on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through to mid-February in random spots in the Hay and Murray Street malls.

Big and small questions

Performing Lines dancers, now on at the Playhouse. d302002

TO help bring its latest work to life, dance company Performing Lines digs below the surface for answers to some of the big and small questions that follow us from youth to old age. Questions Without Notice combines the skills of eight top-flight dancers, with the guidance of leading choreographer Sue Peacock, of Nedlands. Through dance, they tackle the subject of life’s unpredictability and the spontaneity underlining human existence. “The central theme is what happens when something happens that we

are not expecting,” Peacock said. “And what happens physically; how do we react when something we are not expecting occurs?” Peacock, also a lecturer at the WA Academy of Performing Arts and founding member of locally-based Strut dance company, said the production employs a combination of dance, live video and an evolving score. The title is inspired by the unexpected parliamentary questions of the same name – the performers video themselves interviewing one another live, with the physical response drawn from the dialogue.

“What has been interesting about this process are the questions providing the context for the movement,” Peacock said. “The movement doesn’t necessarily mirror the conversation, there is a sense of counterpoint; a gentle question could be followed by violent movement. “It invites the audience to think about things and not take them at face value, but to instead look at what is at the heart of something.” Peacock hopes the Playhouse Theatre production, running from February 3 to 7, will appeal to a broad audience.

VER since Cirque du Soleil made its Perth debut in 1999 with Saltimbanco, a ticket to the Grand Chapiteau on Langley Park has become one of the most coveted in town. Last Wednesday night – 10 years after its world premiere – Dralion arrived, featuring 73 artists from 19 countries, with the promise of another enthralling display of circus arts and street performance testing the physical limitations of the human body. While Cirque is proudly animal-free, the presence of clowns remind punters they are indeed at a circus, and not a theatre show, though it may seem. But fear not, coulrophobia (clown phobia) sufferers. There is not a rainbow-coloured wig or sad face paint in sight, and thank goodness for that. Dralion’s bumbling clown trio were on hand to rev up the audience, interspersing the two-hour show with (at times, some rather unfunny) extended slapstick. The more sophisticated mind-bending fare is what actually pulls in the punters. The first standout was the single hand-balancing contortion act, in which an agile young Chinese girl balances herself on a cane on one hand, while twisting her body into myriad positions. Some acts felt unnecessarily drawn-out, while others, such as the fast-moving juggling set to slick choreography, had the audience captivated as the Russian maestro with the incredible physique juggled up to seven balls simultaneously. By far the most engrossing was the trampoline act, in which aerialists – who wouldn’t look out of place in a Matrix movie – bounced off two


The trampoline act is one of the highlights of the show.

trampolines using the futuristic set backdrop as a diving board and launching pad. Close to matching that ‘wow factor’ were the hoop divers in the second half, in which 10 male artists threw themselves through hoops fastened to a central table. A circus this may be, but leave the ankle-biters at home. This is strictly adult entertainment. Emilia Vranjes

BHP Billiton helps me help myself.

Hi. Erin here. I was born with Retinitis Pigmentosa, which is a genetic disorder that causes the light-sensitive retina to slowly degenerate. I currently have five percent vision. But, luckily, I also have my Guide Dog, Ronnie. We’ve been together for about five and a half years and he helps me get where I need to go. I can tell him to find things like steps, doors, footpaths, trains and buses. He’ll anticipate what’s coming up and go around obstacles such as road works and mobs of people. Sometimes I don’t even realise he’s doing it. I just relax and let Ronnie navigate. Guide Dogs WA did a fantastic job training him up and integrating him into my life. If I get a new job or move to a new area, they’ll come out to check mobility and help with retraining. The Association for the Blind of WA - Guide Dogs WA doesn’t receive Government funding for their Guide Dog program, so they need corporate funding to be able to train and place Guide Dogs at no


cost to the people in need. That’s why BHP Billiton’s continued support is so important.

Thank you BHP Billiton for supporting the Association for the Blind of WA - Guide Dogs WA.


Vasse raises bar A

Vasse Felix chief winemaker Virginia Willcock.

S A sign of the passing years, new owners or new generations now operate five of Margaret River’s six original wineries. Moss Wood passed long ago from Bill and Sandra Pannell to Keith and Clare Mugford, Kevin and Di Cullen’s legacy has passed on to daughter Vanya and Cape Mentelle has passed from the Hohnen family to Moet Hennessy of Louis Vuitton fame. At Woodlands, the younger generation are the day-to-day team. Leeuwin Estate is the obvious exception as Tricia and Denis Horgan appear to be in the office every day when either at the winery or here in Perth. Vasse Felix, Margaret River’s original and literally groundbreaking commercial vineyard, is also evolving. The Holmes a Court family, who have owned the estate for more than half of its 42 years, have recently sold the winery to son Paul and his family. This is largely “business as usual” as he has been the chief executive since the turn of the century. The Heytesbury Chardonnay 2006 (four gold medals and five trophies) Heytesbury is the Vasse Felix premium label. This is a young, intense and potentially great Margaret River chardonnay. I have described it before as

great finesse around the appealing and unusually juicy regional and varietal Margaret River cabernet sauvignon flavours. There is a wonderful lingering finish and aftertaste. At the price, this is not your everyday cabernet sauvignon but when something absolutely marvellous is required then this is one of the wines that has to be on the short list. This is a fuller, softer, richer and more juicy cabernet sauvignon than Vasse has produced in the past and as a result is a more “crowd-pleasing” style. Given the extra age, this wine is developing beautifully and could surpass some of the finest of the previous vintages as the best of the Heytesbury reds to date. This is delicious and will be at its best between 2010 and 2016. 18.3pts and $69

being the best wine ever to be released from Vasse Felix. This wine is one of Australia’s great chardonnays from this era and at $45, is more reasonably priced than nearly all of the small number of its elite peers in Australia. I repeat that this is a great WA chardonnay that will drink marvellously from now until 2015. 18.6 points and $47.50 Vasse Felix Heytesbury Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 The reason that the Vasse Felix Heytesbury label is topical at the moment is that just before Christmas, in yet another of our masked 28-wine varietal tasting line-ups, this wine clearly dominated a range of Australia’s biggest-name cabernets – mainly from the premium Coonawarra and Margaret River regions. The year 2005 was a great vintage for cabernet sauvignon in Margaret River and this wine shows all of the aristocratic benefits of having the region’s oldest vines, all of the technology required and a quality winemaking team. This wine had the youth, power and quality fruit of the other wines tasted and also soft tannins providing both a lovely texture and

Wine of the Week Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon, 2005 2005 was a great Cabernet vintage in Margaret River and even the winery’s more reasonably priced cabernet sauvignon label ($34) gained the UK’s Decanter Magazine Trophy for the world’s Best Cabernet or Red Bordeaux Style Wine in what is one of the wine industry’s major international wine shows – to join its many other accolades. This will be sold out before the end of February so grab it while you can.

Update on Australian Fine China redevelopment Recently the Subiaco Redevelopment Authority finished gathering feedback about plans for the former Australian Fine China site. Feedback from residents, experts and business owners has now been used to make changes to the original plan. Some of the changes that have been made include:

“Every act of love is a work of peace

no matter how small.” Mother Teresa of Calcutta

• removing the 10 storey tower • increasing solar set backs to increase light and improve building appearance • reducing the amount of commercial space on Hay Street to address concerns about potential parking and traffic impacts • adding new public access ways through the Hay Street buildings • adding new mandated visitor bays for residential and commercial developments to alleviate concerns about parking The Subiaco Redevelopment Authority and the City of Subiaco are working together to progress the new plan, but more importantly they are working together to create one of Australia’s most sustainable residential developments. Using the latest design and technology, they want to create a place that minimises the environmental impact by reducing long-term water, waste and fossil fuel use. Another feature of the redevelopment will be bringing together public art and heritage aspects of the original Australian Fine China porcelain factory to celebrate its special place in our State’s history. Australian Fine China produced porcelain in Western Australia for 85 years. When the factory closed its doors for the last time in 2006, it was Australia’s last remaining high-quality porcelain producer. Parts of the original porcelain firing kiln will be incorporated into new building design and left-over porcelain pieces could be used to create unique public art that will conserve the Australian Fine China story for future generations.


“A NEW year is always refreshing. It brings with it the hope of positive changes, new beginnings and often hails the resolve to improve health and wellbeing. In my articles for the Western Suburbs Weekly this year, I have I chosen “peace” as a theme to better health. Why? As a nurse, I believe that a major casual factor of the illhealth present in our community is the lack of peace in our lives. Modern day living is busy. The drive to acquire, achieve and do; the work and social pressures – if not managed well – lead to stress and this affects our health. Through it, we become angry, tired, agitated and we feel exhausted, out-of-sorts and on edge. We may not realise we are feeling this way, as we have learnt to accept it as “the norm” but over time, the constant

pressures that we hold on to affect our body. High blood pressure, heart diseases, obesity, auto-immune diseases and gastrointestinal problems are just some of the diseases that develop when high levels of stress constantly hammer the cells of our body. Our body is a complex, finely tuned vehicle of energy. Housing body, mind and spirit constantly responds to physical, mental and emotional environments that it is exposed to. Much of the “health education” we learn about is focused on body and mind but our spirit plays a major role in good health too. Our spirit gives clues daily. We are going to learn to read the

clues and through eyes of self-appreciation, learn how our spirit can help improve our state of wellbeing. This discovery is an act of love, a work of peace that can heal and restore our body.

Dare to bare

debutantes by desmond eddy PROM season 2009 is red carpet hot with sexy, figurehugging styles, shorter flirty dresses showing off those tanned long legs and classic full gowns for that Hollywood princess moment. Perth ‘prom queen’ Dana Mathers has produced a stunning collection that’s made its debut in LA recently as part of the prestigious G’Day USA fashion show. “The signature look in this collection is my use of a spectacular liquid gossamer fabric that appears to flow like water,” Dana said. “It’s quite magical and a show-stopper when combined with hand-sewn crystal embellishments. “The overall effect echoes the romance of the 1920s art deco era.” Dana continues to nurture every girl’s desire to be a star on her big night with her big guarantee: “Your Dana Mathers design exclusive to your prom – or it’s free”. One thing she can’t guarantee is how quickly her designs are snapped up.

School ball season tips: Cocktail length shows off the legs. ■ A large ball skirt will camouflage your bottom. ■ A fitted dress will show off your figure. ■ Be natural and go with your personality, don’t try to be somebody you’re not. ■ Some colours, like black, work for all skin tones but when going for colour make sure the shade suits your skin tone. ■ Sequins and embroidery are fabulous on a dress, so a simple clutch bag and heels are the way to go. ■ A very intricate dress calls for sheer make-up and minimal accessories to avoid looking too busy. ■ A simple dress requires bold make-up, dramatising the eyes or lips. ■

Theory sparks art study by louise bettison LURID yellow, sweat-drenched vest was the detested but mandatory work uniform for George EgertonWarburton, as a manual labourer in construction, salvage and garbage collection. It immediately marked the Claremont resident as an unskilled worker, with all the accompanying stereotypes. But it also profoundly affected his sense of self and understanding of Western Australia,


and left him wondering why people in WA were so accepting of yellow vest wearers, letting them get away with anything. He tested the theory in his final year as a Curtin University art student, painting an East Perth wall wearing nothing but the vest then donning one to take over a supermarket aisle and construct a tower of cornflake boxes. “For the first I was breaking two laws at once including public nudity, so the big joke at home is that I am gaining a bit of ‘exposure’ from my art,” Egerton-Warburton said. His yellow vest theory was grounded in an

event three years earlier, when a graffiti artist completed a major work on Stirling Highway unhindered, simply by donning a yellow vest and erecting an orange mesh fence. “The writer let the benefits of the Perth public’s positive attitude towards industry and development work its magic, while he went to work on the wall,” Egerton-Warburton said. “It appealed to my criminal sensibilities, but I soon learned graffiti has a lot more rules than people think.” His recent work investigates the clash between self-sufficiency and industrial

development, and perceived ignorance of the source of material wealth and everyday produce. Egerton-Warburton attributes the tangent to his childhood in Kojonup, but says it is “intertwined” with the yellow vest theory as both explore the state’s love affair with industry. Egerton-Warburton and 29 artists including West Perth’s Annabel Dixon and Floreat painter Penny Coss exhibit in Yellow Vest Syndrome, at Fremantle Arts Centre in Finnerty Street until March 29.

Bark paintings tell a story

Art Gallery of Western Australia curatorial intern Chad Creighton. d301477

A NEW exhibition at the Art Gallery of Western Australia will bring stories from north east Arnhem Land to Perth via bark paintings. Curator Chad Creighton said most of the artworks were from the Louis Allen Collection, which was purchased by the State Government in 1988. Everywhen will be the final exhibition for Creighton, who has spent three years at the gallery completing an internship. He said putting together the exhibit involved extensive research and travel to the community of Yirrkala in the north of Australia. “Most of the artists in this exhibition were very well known in their day,” he said. “Some of them were also involved in very important significant events, like the Yirrkala Bark Petitions of 1963.” The petitions were the first traditional documents prepared by Aboriginal

Australians to be recognised by Federal Parliament. It was the first native title case on record and the petitions asserted the Yolngu people owned the land the Commonwealth Government had gifted to Nabalco to mine bauxite. A resultant parliamentary inquiry recommended compensation be granted to the Yolngu people however, when the case was taken to the courts in 1971 the magistrate ruled against it, citing terra nullius. Creighton said the exhibition had been a good opportunity for him to specialise in a specific art form.

“I think (the Yirrkala) are a really inspirational group of people,” he said. “If you look at everything they’ve achieved and what they’re still achieving it can be very inspirational.” Creighton said the name Everywhen was used as an alternative to the term ‘the Dreaming.’ “The Dreaming is a concept that applies to some Aboriginal groups but not all,” he said. “The Dreaming itself is not finished, it’s ongoing. Everywhen kind of captured that concept.” Everywhen will run until May 31.

Valentine concert gets velvet touch by michael gill IRELESS fundraiser Di Watts has organised a jazzy Valentines concert in Fremantle on Sunday, February 15. Regularly teeing up events to aid the Red Cross, Mrs Watts has extended her benevolent efforts to help raise money for the SolarisCare Foundation. The resource has centres at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in


Musician Adam Hall with Di Watts.

Nedlands and St John of God Hospital in Subiaco, offering therapies such as reflexology and massage to cancer patients. Mrs Watts bounced back from a brain tumour eight years ago and her husband’s subsequent cancer diagnosis introduced the family to the benefits offered by SolarisCare. “I know how valuable support is when you’re helping a family member through chemotherapy and I’m so glad that there’s somewhere like SolarisCare,” she said.

The Churchlands resident has enlisted the help of six-piece jazz outfit Adam Hall and the Velvet Playboys to perform at the Valentines show at the Navy Club on High Street, which starts at 4pm. “So many people I know and wonderful musician friends have been affected by cancer, so I think if you’re able to get out there and help, you’ve got to do it,” Mr Hall said. Tickets are $20 each. Call 0418 904 557 for tickets.

Santana tribute band Soul Sacrifice will perform in Crawley this Sunday.

Santana sounds for sunset gig THE sounds of Santana will fill the air at the Sunset @ Subi concert in Crawley this Sunday. Soul Sacrifice, named after the epic 11-minute Santana instrumental track, will perform at JH Abrahams Reserve on The Avenue from 6.30pm. An affinity for music performed by the Mexican guitar maestro prompted former university friends Sam Musca and Ezio Caffarell to put together the

tribute band about two years ago. The duo then called on several musician friends with the same passion for Santana to join in and the group has since filled out to a seven-piece. Musca said making the band a reality for two guys who were still as passionate about music as they were 30 years ago was a dream come true. Audiences can expect to hear

plenty of Santana favourites like Black Magic Woman, Oye Como Va and Evil Ways. The band has played a host of Perth venues including the Perth Blues Club in North Perth and the Leopold Hotel. Organisers have encouraged audiences to bring along a low chair or rug as well as refreshments for the performance in Crawley. Visit for more.

PEOPLE who are serious about hair removal prefer a specialist centre like Erazer Claremont, says owner Michelle. She said unlike Erazer, most IPL procedures in Perth used lowenergy removal technology. “As a result, we are seeing many people who have finished a course of low-energy IPL or SPL and can’t see much of a difference,” Michelle said. “When the hair is actively growing it is important that sufficient energy is delivered, otherwise it will keep coming back.” Erazer Claremont uses medical-grade IPL equipment to achieve permanent reduction in hair.

Melbourne Luxury True North Ashore — newly opened luxury accommodation in the Margaret River region.

True North equals luxury HOUGH accessible to all holidaymakers, the Margaret River region – in particular, Eagle Bay – has certainly established itself in recent years as something of a playground for WA’s rich and famous. Discerning southwest holidaymakers hunting around for luxury accommodation for their next visit may find what they are looking for with the recentlyopened, individually-designed, multi-million dollar True North Ashore. Set on 5500sqm of jarrah and peppermint trees on a hilltop overlooking the Indian Ocean and Eagle Bay, the home is operated by the directors of the wellknown luxury adventure cruise ship, the True North, and is


designed to combine the best of the Kimberley and the Southwest. Owner Mark Stothard said True North Ashore set a new benchmark for luxury private holiday homes in the area. “We’re surrounded by the holiday homes of the rich and famous at beautiful Eagle Bay, but we didn’t want to build just another expensive holiday house,” he said. “We wanted to create something special that touches people in a way they’re not expecting. “You can enjoy the ultimate Margaret River experience, but you’ll also experience the magic of the Kimberley.” Seventy tonnes of Kimberley stone from Wyndham was


brought down for the feature entrance water fall and the outdoor stone spa, while natural timbers and Kimberley colours are themed throughout the property. Mr Stothard said every detail had been carefully considered, with original concepts by leading landscaping designer Max Hewitt, and final architectural and design development by the awardwinning Planforum Design Studio. Highlights include sweeping views over the ocean to Busselton in the east and Rocky Point surf break in the west, and the option of an on-call private chef and massage therapist. Prices start from $3600 for three nights. Visit www.truenorth

A mother’s true tale told CHANGELING (MA 15+) Director: Clint Eastwood Starring: Angelina Jolie, John Malkovich


Otahuna Lodge on New Zealand’s South Island

Epicurean adventure in NZ like no other SERIOUS foodies looking for a tasty sense of escapism may want to consider a five-star epicurean adventure through the forests and fields of the Canterbury region on New Zealand’s South Island. The luxury Otahuna Lodge hosts the gourmet experience, which takes advantage of the abundance of porcini mushrooms that are ripe for picking now until March 1. Guests join executive chef Jimmy McIntyre on a mushroom hunt, cooking class and five-course degustation dinner designed to showcase New Zealand’s best wines. The lodge reopened in May 2007 after an extensive renovation by new owners Hall Cannon and Miles Refo, who swept in from New York to transform this magical historic property. The mushroom hunt starts with a foraging expedition in which expert chef McIntyre will track down porcini and field mushrooms, abundant on the lodge’s 12-hectare grounds. He will then take guests on a personal tour of his extraordinary ‘potager’, or kitchen garden – a onehectare chemical-free oasis tended by its own full-time gardener. The potager is adjoined by an orchard, abundant with berries, apples, pears, strawberries,

raspberries and quince, hazelnuts and walnuts. During a personal cooking lesson in the lodge’s country kitchen, guests will use the freshly picked mushrooms and other ingredients almost entirely gathered fresh on the property, from leeks and artichokes to chicken and eggs, to cook up some creative dishes. Guests will then venture further afield on a Taste Canterbury food and wine tour, escorted by awardwinning food writer Mavis Airey. From the Banks Peninsula to the Waipara Valley, guests will explore the workings of speciality cheesemakers and boutique wineries, tasting house-smoked salmon, single-flower honey varieties and hand-made chocolates. Otahuna Lodge’s two-night mushroom package, depending on the suite and based on double occupancy, ranges from NZ$4000 to $5200 plus 12.5 per cent GST. Rates include a two-night stay, daily breakfast, evening cocktails and canapes, two five-course degustation dinners with wine pairings, a cooking class and a Taste Canterbury food and wine tour.

O matter how captivating good fiction can be, nothing quite pulls in an audience like a compelling true story. And Christine Collins’ true tale of a mother’s quest to find her son is about as fascinating as a story can get. Seventy-eight-year-old film veteran Clint Eastwood puts on his director’s cap once again to continue his run of provocative and riveting dramas (Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River, Gran Torino) with Changeling, a stylistic and powerful retelling of Collins’ shocking saga, one that rocked California’s legal system in the late 1920s. In March 1928, single mother Collins (Angelina Jolie) returns to her Los Angeles home to find her nine-year-old son, Walter, missing. At first, the LAPD seems completely apathetic in their approach to her case, however, a radio minister, Gustav Briegleb (John Malkovich) begins to loudly scrutinise the morals and ethics of the department, who in turn begin to feel the heat from public opinion. Thus, five months later with Walter still missing, Captain Jones (Jeffrey Donovan) miraculously presents Collins with a boy they purport to be her son, however, she knows it isn’t Walter. Collins is forced to accept the new boy into her home on a “trial” basis, tricked by Jones to


Angelina Jolie shines in Changeling.

believe that she may have forgotten her son due to trauma. When she continues to plead that this is not her son, Jones does what he does with any citizen who questions the department – lock them up in a mental hospital. While Eastwood’s direction is stylish and reminiscent of the golden era of filmmaking and Jolie’s performance is on-point as she unravels in the midst of this unescapable horror, the star of the Changeling is the first-rate,

fastidiously researched script by Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski. Former journalist Straczynski uncovered the details of this shocking case in old police, hospital, city hall records, and worked for a year to provide attribution for every single scene. Rather than shoving all of his overwhelming discoveries in our faces, he builds the drama up slowly, keeping the audience guessing at every turn. Ross McRae

Employment Data National employment data for November 2008 shows that employers are trying to hold existing staffing levels in the face of a slowing economy, according to the Australian Chamber of Commerce. However, ACCI chairman Peter Anderson cautioned that unemployment would not stay low unless confidence returned, domestic stimulus packages worked and flexibility remained in employment regulation. Unemployment figures for November showed that unemployment had risen by 0.1 per cent to 4.4 per cent. Most economists had predicted a figure of 4.5 per cent unemployment for November. Mr Anderson said he welcomed

the fact that unemployment had risen by only a relatively small amount. “This suggests that most employers, having experienced a skills shortage for a number of years, are trying to stay positive and hold onto staff for as long as possible,” he said. “Although we know that business activity and job ads are down, in the short term employers are avoiding layoffs by reducing costs in other areas of business activity, by reducing hours or restructuring rosters, by staff taking periods of leave or redeploying staff. “However, in most businesses these are only options for a limited time.” Mr Anderson said a more critical time was likely to come in the

early months of 2009, once an economic activity assessment is made in the wake of the Federal Government’s stimulus package, recent interest rate reductions and consumer and investment confidence over the Christmas and New Year period. “To hold current jobs and to grow more jobs as the economy rebounds, we need to maintain flexibility in the labour market and keep investing in skills,” he said. “These should be policy objectives for industry, unions and governments.” Official Treasury department forecasts are for unemployment to rise to 5 per cent by June 2009.

Tafe Applications Concerns about the economy and future employment options have prompted a big rise in the number of people seeking to take on full-time study. The number of applications to study full-time courses at TAFE colleges in 2009 has jumped by 14 per cent compared with last year. Figures show 13,595 people have applied this year, up considerably from 11,859 in 2008. State Training Minister Peter Collier said with the current economic situation, there would be greater emphasis on the training sector. “Now more than ever is a good time for people to gain new skills and qualifications not only through TAFE but also registered training

organisations,” the minister said. “This is particularly pertinent for mature-aged workers, who want to keep their skills relevant and up-to-date, or re-skill and move into different industries or careers. “In recent years, many Western Australians have been fortunate to obtain well-paid, unskilled positions but going into the future, the labour market is tightening and competition for jobs will increase. “Having a strong skill set is an invaluable asset for job seekers.” The minister said while the higher number of applications was encouraging, there was still plenty of work to be done to raise the status of training

programs and pathways, to ensure the state was well positioned to meet industry needs for the next decade. He said the increase reflected the Government’s aim to streamline the training system and make it easier for people to study and gain new skills. “Graduating students are extremely competitive in the marketplace when looking for work,” the minister said. Nursing and Teaching Assistant qualifications remain the most popular courses this year, followed by Electrotechnology. Applications for courses offering qualifications in Primary Industry have increased 39 per cent this year.

Healthy Living Climate Research Greater incidences of infectious diseases and food safety related illnesses are two of the likely health risks associated with climate change, according to the Federal Government’s National Health and Medical Research Council. Climate Change Minister Penny Wong said the Government would fund research into the human health effects of climate change, and the strategies needed to reduce the risks. “By 2020, for example, we are likely to see more food safety related illnesses and Dengue Fever is likely to spread southwards,” the Minister said. “We need to understand the diversity of these health risks, who will be the most vulnerable, and the actions governments, individuals and communities can take to reduce the risks.” On January 27, the Minister

released Human Health and Climate Change - a National Adaptation Research Plan, which details Australia’s research priorities during the next five to seven years. It will focus on key areas of heat, extreme weather, vector-borne disease, mental health, health care, food safety and the factors that influence risk. The Minister said it was the first time the NHMRC had declared health and climate change a priority in its funding guidelines, and the Government was providing $6 million to fund the research. Australian Medical Association vice president Gary Speck welcomed the announcement. “We are already seeing some of the impacts, with a virulent outbreak of dengue fever in Queensland and predictions that this could move south,” he said.

“Climate change could also see a resurgence of old diseases, the redistribution of others, and the emergence of new diseases linked to altered climate and changing ecological balances. “As we have seen in Queensland, the transmission of certain arboviruses, transmitted via mosquito bites, is particularly susceptible to environmental conditions. “Even social responses to climate change, such as the resurgence of back yard water tanks, can have health implications such as the risk of mosquitoes.”

A time to re-evaluate situations, and make definite decisions. Things may not be as gloomy as first thought. Friends may be helpful with advice but ultimately the decisions are yours. So be gentle with yourself, and simply do what you can. There are simply some things beyond your control. 13, 3, 19, 24, 11, 2

This week begins with a flurry of activity, try to space yourself. There could be a few stressful issues to be dealt with and past concerns resurface. Try to step back and see things in a new light. It is time for new beginnings, so open doors. 34, 29, 12, 3, 27, 6

A concern around family and friends finally has answers, they may not be what you expected, however it is a place to begin from. You may be placed in a difficult spot, around the confidence of another. It is literally between the devil and the deep blue sea. 34, 25, 10, 38, 7, 21




Well who rained on your parade? Just move on from that which you have absolutely no control over. People could appear a bit scattered and unsettled around you, try not to buy into their dramas. You will be happier doing your own thing. Financial blessing midweek. 6, 23, 45, 29, 2, 8

Head down and simply get the work done, then you can relax and enjoy a break. Try not to get caught up in the negative energies of others. What you cannot change, simply leave alone. Relationships are a bit on edge, so step gently, give everyone time to deal with their stuff. 16, 34, 29, 30, 42, 1

Decisions on emotional issues need to be made. This is not a time for procrastination, so just do it. Decide what you want, really want, then make it happen. Finances are in for a boost, which sees a smile on your face. The past tries to come back….Slam the door. 6, 12, 29, 30, 41, 11




There is light at the end of the tunnel, so it is a time for cautionary celebrations. Keep on moving forward with plans, and make sure you follow through. A challenge on the work front sees you rise to new heights. Take care on roads, especially at night. 34, 28, 12, 21, 4, 35

Work areas are highlighted and it may simply be time to state your case, or move on. Trust new directions are just around the corner. Partners tend to be a bit demanding, so you could feel a little unappreciated. Hang in it will all balance and be better shortly. 45, 21, 24, 29, 2, 15

This is not the time to take on the problems of others, you need to concentrate on yourself. The career area is about to hit overload, so rest while you can. Be prepared for some confrontation, and moving on. You need to put your own life in order, before sorting others. 45, 23, 10, 6, 37, 28




There are a few personal choices around that simply need to be sorted. This is no time to hide, just get on with it. New friends will open your mind to unusual interests. Some will look to sorting partnership issues on all levels. Old friends can be demanding. 21, 45, 16, 27, 41, 12

This is a time when relationships are highlighted in good and bad ways. What will blow up now simply will. Try to give others a bit of space, so that they can deal with their issues. Tempers are slightly frayed, so step gently. Midweek is better for financial situations. 26, 37, 18, 3, 9, 38

Time to stop beating around the bush, and simply stand your ground. The fear of hurting feelings is not doing you any good, or getting any change happening. Speak your piece and then begin putting the pieces back together in an acceptable manner. 3, 26, 20, 43, 10, 39

Subi-Floreat dismiss Midland by ted wishart DAY one of round thirteen in the WA Cricket Association saw Subiaco Floreat finish the day in a strong position against Midland Guildford. However, poor batting performances by Claremont Nedlands and University against Rockingham Mandurah and Perth mean their bowlers face an uphill battle this weekend. Simon Branston (3-59), Aaron Lilly (2-23) and Tim Monteleone (2-31) all bowled well and were the main wicket takers in Midland Guildford’s modest total of 211 at Floreat Oval. Opening batsmen David Bolton (26 not out) and Alex Malajczuk (18 not out) then guided their team to 045 at stumps. The Tigers’ top-order batsmen lost three early wickets at Lark Hill, with Claremont Nedlands eventually dismissed for 201. University was cruising at Fletcher Park and reached 2-126 but were eventually dismissed for 191.

WESTERN Suburbs Cricket Club was beaten by Whitfords on Saturday at Rosalie Park. Chasing Whitfords’ 161, Wests could only reach 112 and now sit 10th on the table, precariously close to the relegation zone. Resuming at 1-21, Wests started well, with Alex Drew and Jarrod Sinclair looking comfortable at the crease. The pair batted past the first drinks and added another 37 until Drew (19) was bowled by a James Parsons slider. Sinclair then followed shortly after, when a leading edge off Parsons ballooned to cover. Wests then collapsed to be 5-86, with Parsons tak-

ing all five. Some stubborn resistance from Troy Bilich and Ryan Smith saw Wests through to tea at 5-102. After tea, the two began cautiously and despite the cracked and grassless pitch playing inconsistently, appeared to have some control. However, when Bilich (12) was bowled by a shooter while attempting to pull, Wests had again left it to the bowlers to rescue the innings. Unlike previous weeks, the lower order provided minimal resistance. Several batsmen were trapped in front by balls that crawled and the last four wickets fell quickly. Michael Davis

Plan for success. The key to a waterwise garden lies in its design. For example, rather than scatter your plants any which way, it’s best to cluster together those with identical water requirements.

Sub-soil irrigation. From trees to garden beds, a properly designed and installed sub-soil watering system can save a significant amount of water. Choose one with a Waterwise Rebate, and it can save you a good deal of money too.
