Cor blimey, Chicken’s flown the coop

One of children’s literature’s favourite feathery fellows is embarking on a new adventure with a little help from his creator, Williamstown artist and author Leigh Hobbs. After taking Paris by storm, Mr Chicken is now squeezing as much as he can into a flight of fancy through London’s many sites. Hobbs says his new book is a love letter of sorts to his favourite city in the world. ■ For the full story, turn to page 14.

Cable jobs to join exodus By Benjamin Millar Nearly 100 more jobs are set to be lost from Melbourne’s western suburbs with Tottenham power cable manufacturer Nexans Olex to cease production before the end of the year. A high Australian dollar and falling demand are being blamed for the decision to shut down operations and lay off 90 workers, with locally made products struggling against global competitors. The job losses follow gradual cuts at Nexans Olex over the past 12 months

and come as thousands of western suburbs workers face employment oblivion in the face of ship-building and auto-industry closures. Nexans Olex is Australia’s largest power cable supplier, employing more than 700 staff in Australia and New Zealand. Its human resources and corporate affairs general manager John Thomson said the company would be doing the right thing by workers affected. “Our immediate priority is to provide appropriate support to these employees,” he said.

A statement issued by the company indicated the exact timing of the Tottenham closure would coincide with completion of forward orders. “Nexans Olex has taken this step to position the company for a sustainable and successful future in Australia,” the statement read. “Over the coming months, Nexans Olex will work closely with customers to ensure they are provided with the best cable solutions.” The company’s Lilydale site and New Zealand operation are unaffected by the decision.

Mr Thomson said the Tottenham warehouse operations would remain in place, and sales, sales support, supply chain and technical and administration roles would mostly be unaffected. “The Tottenham facility as such is not closing,” he said. “[However] the manufacturing of power cable products will not reopen at Tottenham. Manufactured products will be sourced from our Lilydale or New Plymouth [New Zealand] facilities or from Nexans-approved supply partners.” ■ Unity ticket on ships job threat – P 8

NEWS

Down by the riverside, a design ‘to enjoy’ The developer planning to build a 28-storey high-rise tower on the banks of the Maribyrnong River has praised the project’s design, despite a growing backlash. Martin Toogood, of Devcorp (Vic), said he has been working with the council and state government for 14 years after acquiring the 2 Hopkins Street, Footscray, site in 2000. “I think it will bring a great result,” he said. “We spent a lot of time with the architects, a lot of time with the council in the beginning. “I think the design is impressive visually; a lot of people would enjoy the design, enjoy driving down Dynon Road and seeing it.” Last week, Star Weekly reported Planning Minister Matthew Guy had used his powers to approve the $200 million riverside development of 751 apartments in four towers ranging from 16 to 28 storeys. The approval came despite a design review panel of the Office of the Victorian Government Architect finding significant shortcomings and holding “fundamental concerns that the

current proposal compromises the public amenity of the Maribyrnong riverside corridor and does not adequately contribute to the realisation of an integrated and successful urban precinct in Footscray”. The panel expressed the “firm view that the civic amenity is negatively affected by this proposal”. Maribyrnong mayor Grant Miles said council had specific concerns about the height of the buildings. “The development is located within the riverside precinct and will have a significant detrimental effect on liveability of local streets,” he said. Cr Catherine Cumming said the project was too tall and failed to live up to the minister’s promise to protect the river from overdevelopment. “With this development, it would seem they are abusing the minister’s powers and pushing for much higher, much larger developments,” she said.

Mr Toogood said the plans were upfront about shadows falling on adjoining properties and the river, and the minister would have had this information in making his decision. “It has been a long process,” he said.

“We don’t know why he does what he does, the reasoning of the advice he is getting.” Mr Buxton said the politicisation of planning was unhealthy. “The minister is making it a political process. He’s putting himself at the centre of decisionmaking. He’s got to get himself out of it and leave it to local councils.”

Benjamin Millar

Wind fears for Paintspot site

By Benjamin Millar Planning Minister Matthew Guy has failed to properly plan Footscray’s future and should hand control of development back to Maribyrnong council, according to critics. Last week’s controversial approval of a 28-storey riverside high-rise project has ignited calls for Mr Guy to hand back the powers he has held since 2007. Maribyrnong mayor Grant Miles said Mr Guy’s decision to announce the tower by media release before informing the council showed how little the minister cared for the views of the council and community. Former mayors and current councillors Sarah Carter and Catherine Cumming were also scathing, with Cr Carter labelling the decision the final straw. “It’s a slap in the face; he’s an authority unto himself,” she said. “I have no hope for the future of being able to work with the planning minister.” Cr Cumming said the controls were handed over in good faith that the council’s views would be considered. “It would seem over time that the power the council handed to the minister has been abused,” she said. “It’s probably time to look at requesting the controls come back to the council.” RMIT planning expert Michael Buxton said the council should be responsible for local decision making. He said the secrecy behind the current process was disturbing. “These decisions are being made on information and a basis that the community doesn’t know anything about,” he said.

“I would be very hopeful this could get started very quickly – it will be a great thing for Footscray.”

Footscray Labor MP Marsha Thomson said the latest decision highlighted the damage being wrought on Footscray without proper scrutiny. “This is about making sure, as the community grows, it is done in a way where it is hand in hand with jobs and infrastructure.” Mr Guy’s office did not answer questions about the issue.

A 16-storey residential tower proposed for a prime Footscray site has been rejected by Maribyrnong council, with the final decision resting with Planning Minister Matthew Guy. The $40 million project for the Paintspot site at 26-34 Buckley Street would contain 182 dwellings built above ground floor retail stores. But the council has objected to the application on the grounds it lacks housing diversity, provides fewer car parking spaces than needed, conflicts with planning policies and would have unacceptable impact on local amenity. Mayor Grant Miles said the council could not support the development. “We have concerns about overshadowing on Nicholson and Buckley streets, concerns about major wind funnels,” he said. A report on the application found the proposed 16-storey building was six storeys taller than the preferred height for the area under the Footscray Structure Plan. The building setback was considered insufficient, parking in the area would be impacted and wind conditions experienced by pedestrians would be “severely compromised”. A spokeswoman for the Planning Minister said a decision about the proposal had yet to be reached. Benjamin Millar

‘Ghost town’ fee uproar By Goya Dmytryshchak Williamstown traders have made a budget submission opposing a 10 per cent rise in Nelson Place parking fees, saying the dearest hourly rates in the west have already turned their shopping strip into a “ghost town”. Hobsons Bay council is proposing to increase fees from $3 to $3.30 per hour in its 2014-15 budget. In 2012-2013, the council made $884,000 from Nelson Place parking meters and 1506 fines. Traders say nine businesses in Nelson Place have closed since January. Atomic Bar owner Marty Grech said traders were at a disadvantage because Nelson Place was the only street in Hobsons Bay with parking meters. “The parking down here in Nelson Place has killed us,” he said. “The fact that it’s all day until 10pm – I think most other suburbs finish off at 6.30pm – and the fact that it’s $3 per hour is absolutely ridiculous. “The street’s just getting drained and drained and drained. They claim that they’re in line with other councils; I don’t know where. “South Melbourne is around $1.40, $1.60 an hour until 6.30pm and Sunday is free. “Footscray is a little bit more than that ($1.70-$2.20 per hour). “I want to push that the hours are dropped at least until 6.30pm. “It’s a ghost town down here and everyone’s suffering. This is meant to be the so-called tourist precinct for Williamstown … without us, what are people coming here for?” Santorini Restaurant owner Stav Mastro said that by increasing parking fees again, the council was stopping people from visiting.

Marty Grech, of Atomic Bar, “feeds” a meter. (Damjan Janevski)

“We shouldn’t have to wait until January for the good weather in order to get people,” she said. “People should be there all year round. The whole of Nelson Place is dead as it is. “It’s a big tourist attraction of Williamstown and it’s just a ghost town. It’s dying.” “It was bad enough that they put the parking meters in in the first place … increasing them is ridiculous.” Mayor Sandra Wilson said it was the first time parking fees in the Williamstown area had increased in three years. “This is the first time parking fees in the Williamstown area have increased since 2011

and the 30-cent increase is in line with CPI,” she said. “Free parking permits are available to residents of Hobsons Bay.” Strand ward councillor Paul Morgan said he would oppose the parking fee hike and vote against the budget. He suggested parking fees be dropped in winter. Fellow ward councillors Angela Altair and Peter Hemphill did not respond by deadline when asked if they supported the fee increase. The date for the council’s adoption of the budget has been extended from June 24 to July 8.

Group slams debt proposal Hobsons Bay Residents Association (HBRA) has made a budget submission objecting to the council’s plans to increase its debt to $16.5 million. HBRA’s submission also claims it is unfair that Strand ward has been allocated four times more than Cherry Lake ward in the capital works budget. Figures in the submission show Strand ward will get $10.2 million, compared with $2.6 million for Cherry Lake ward and $3.4 million for Wetlands. In 2013-14, Strand ward received $8 million, Cherry Lake $1.5 million and Wetlands ward $1.1 million. The HBRA submission said council debt would rise from $1.6 million last financial year to $16.5 million by July 2015. “This is an increase of more than 930 per cent in just two years.’’ The submission also questioned what the council was buying for $2.3 million in Wetlands ward. “There is another confidential acquisition in Wetlands ward of $2.3 million, which is proceeding, financed completely from borrowings,” the submission states. “Why is the council treating this confidentially?’’ Star Weekly asked the council several questions about the HBRA’s concerns. Mayor Sandra Wilson replied: “We won’t be responding until we’ve considered the submission and responded to the HBRA directly.” Goya Dmytryshchak

Mr Mulder needs to get out of his ivory tower and face the residents of Altona by

attending the annual meeting of the Altona Loop Group. I’m sure the residents would certainly disagree with his recent claims. Frustrated, via web

Going offshore

Nexans Olex had a workforce of 220 last year, then it was cut to 90. Now, everyone is out of a job (‘Ninety jobs go as Tottenham cable manufacturer closes’, Star Weekly online, June 5).

Let council do its job

Diana Hogg obviously has strong convictions about the Hobsons Bay council budget (‘Budget must be reviewed’, Letters, June 4). However, she expresses them as though she is speaking for everybody living in Hobsons Bay. I am also a resident and small business owner who considered running for council in the previous election. I personally believe our new mayor Sandra Wilson and her colleagues are doing a great job. This is Sandra’s first term as a councillor, and within a year she was elected by her esteemed colleagues to become mayor of Hobsons Bay, which is a great achievement in itself. I imagine juggling the commitments of being the mayor, councillor, wife and mother of young children is not an easy feat and commend her for taking on this great responsibility. Furthermore if the “Tony Briffa-led faction” of the last council were such

champions for the community, why are none of them still councillors? Three were voted out at the last election and it seems Tony Briffa decided to depart in a hurry this year. It’s time we allowed our elected officials to do their duty by supporting their endeavours, which I have no doubt are in the best interest of the community at large. Lisa Taggart, Williamstown

Bulldogs In Focus

Peter Gordon, I’d just like to offer you, and the whole club, my full support. The plan is transparent and I can see it isn’t wavering. I believe success will come. Undying belief is powerful and can help overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. I have seen it at Manchester United and at Geelong. Melbourne Football Club has found either belief or confidence, and we have seen the change there. The roar of the crowd in Adelaide is another confidence booster for the South Australian teams. You have been instrumental in some good work with our cheer squad. But I think they need to do a little bit more and lead our supporters to roar/sing like the Barmy Army. Bulldogs fans can do more.

A saint for those in need A Footscray nun inspired by the charity work of Saint Mary MacKillop has been recognised for her lifetime of work by being named a Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia (AM). Sister Joan Healy received the Queen’s Birthday honour on Monday for her significant service to the Catholic Church in Australia and as a social welfare advocate in South East Asia. Sister Joan was the co-founder and director of Footscray’s St Anthony’s Family Centre in 1976. When 24, she found a book about Mother Mary’s work for the poor and uneducated. “What inspired me was here was a woman of vision and courage and prayer who was not behind a convent wall but right down on the ground with people who were poor.” Benjamin Millar

John Ballestrino has been putting up his hand to fill vacancies on committees, raise money for community groups and help get local projects off the ground since he was 13. Now his 40-year commitment to the Wyndham and Hobsons Bay communities has been recognised with an Order of Australia (AO) in this year’s Queen’s Birthday honours. Mr Ballestrino, of Seabrook, says the award is not recognition for his community service but of all the volunteers he has ever worked with. “If they weren’t around none of this would have happened,” he said. “I wish they could all receive replicas of the award. You can’t get on with things unless other people help and I’ve worked with hundreds.” Mr Ballestrino has been involved in a variety of organisations in Wyndham and Hobsons Bay, from the Altona Youth Group to the Laverton Magpies Football Club, where he is a coach, committee member and life member, and Hobsons Bay Pirates Softball Club. He volunteers for school councils and the Royal Melbourne Hospital dialysis support group and is president of the committee which set up Point Cook’s own Relay for Life event to raise money for cancer research. “Relay for Life is the most fulfilling committee to be on in terms of what you get back from it,” he said. “The people involved have such strength.” Mr Ballestrino said volunteering was something he had always done. “I like being part of a team and have made

Unity ticket on ship jobs threat (Wayne Hawkins)

By Goya Dmytryshchak

Fires spark arson probe Police believe four suspicious fires within a week at vacant buildings in the Braybrook and Footscray area could be linked. Maribrynong detectives are investigating a fire at an unoccupied, double-storey unit in Errol Street, Braybrook about 11pm on June 4, which came after two fires the previous night. One fire gutted a vacant house in Balmoral Street, Braybrook just after 2am on June 3. The house is expected to be demolished. There was also a blaze at a house in Ballarat Road, Footscray about 11pm on June 2, which took 23 firefighters 35 minutes to control. The house, which had a for sale sign at the front, was believed to have been vacant at the time of the blaze, which caused about $150,000 worth of damage. The latest fires came after two men were seen running from a fire at an

unoccupied unit in Empire Street, Footscray about 9.30pm on May 31. “Detectives are investigating whether the suspicious fire is linked to other reports of similar fires in the area in the past week. Investigators have a number of inquiries to make and their investigation is ongoing,” a police spokesman said. Metropolitan Fire Brigade senior station officer Damian Bourke told Fairfax radio that neighbours saw two men running from the area about the time the May 31 fire began. “Because it was late at night there’s no description of the men, but just the number of men was two,” Mr Bourke said. He said several aerosol cans were found in the unit. Ben Cameron

The state government has joined the opposition in calling on the federal government to ensure there is work for Williamstown’s 1000 shipbuilders in the wake of Friday’s announcement that two new navy supply vessels will be built offshore. Victorian Manufacturing Minister David Hodgett said his government was seeking a commitment from the Abbott government that Williamstown’s BAE shipyard will be given work on the two replenishment vessels to be sourced from Spain or South Korea. As reported by Star Weekly in April, Gellibrand Labor MP Tim Watts said unless new work contracts were awarded to BAE, the shipyard would close. Current work at BAE runs out in January. On Friday, Mr Watts said the government had “torpedoed the local shipbuilding industry”, while the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union labelled the move to source ships offshore as “insidious”. Mr Hodgett urged the federal government to guarantee work for local shipbuilders and re-allocate work to Williamstown under its Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD) program. “While it’s disappointing the federal government has announced it will source two vessels from Navantia in Spain or Daewoo in South Korea, we believe there are significant opportunities for BAE to be involved and complete work on the vessels at Williamstown in the same way they have done on the amphibious assault ship,” he said.

While he welcomed the federal government’s decision to fast-track at least 20 replacement steel-hulled Pacific patrol boats, Mr Hodgett said there would be open competition among Australian shipyards for the work. “We urge the federal government to ensure that the awarding of this contract is done urgently as we believe BAE Systems is in the best position to deliver steel-hulled vessels,” he said. BAE spokesman Simon Latimer said timing was critical.

‘‘

We believe BAE Systems is in the best position  – David Hodgett

’’

“We believe our highly skilled team, our Williamstown shipyard and the reach back we have to the extensive naval shipbuilding capability that exists in our international organisation can play an integral role in the AWD project,” Mr Latimer said. “We will be putting a strong case to the federal government that we’re ready to take on additional work and responsibilities to help deliver this significant national project. “We look forward to quickly discussing with the government these challenges and the solutions that are available to it. “Once we have done so, we will provide further specific comments regarding both short- and long-term plans for our company’s shipbuilding operations in Australia.”

Extra round for sluggers By Goya Dmytryshchak Williamstown’s Barry Michael reached the pinnacle of his boxing career aged 30 when he beat Lester Ellis for the 1985 International Boxing Federation super featherweight world title. The two boxing legends will pair up this Friday to tell “The Real Story” at a film night in Sunshine’s Westend Market Hotel. The pair first met when Lester was 12 and Michael was 22. The latter says he instantly recognised a future champion in another boy from Melbourne’s commission flats. “We sparred thousands of rounds together and he tried to kill me every time,” Michael says. But Michael says the Ellis camp was ‘‘filthy’’ on him after he won the world title bout at Melbourne’s Festival Hall on July 12, 1985. “It’s now history that after 15 brutal rounds – which was one of the last 15-rounders because they brought it back to 12 rounds after that – it caused a lot of bad blood.’’ Michael says the pair patched things up when Ellis arranged a meeting after Michael lost his world title in England in 1987. “It’s been pretty good ever since,” he says. Friday’s event will include a screening of their big fight and other highlights of their careers. Michael and Ellis will also take questions from the audience. “It’s a bit of a unique night; this is only the second one we’ve done.” Michael says. “Basically, there’s nothing hidden – anything anyone wants to ask.’’ The event is at 47 McIntyre Road from 7.30pm.

Law a factor in Kororoit rezone A two-storey, 90-bed, aged-care centre could be built in Williamstown North, with Hobsons Bay council officers recommending the rezoning of industrial land at 222-258 Kororoit Creek Road. A report that went before a council meeting on Tuesday, June 10, states rezoning the land from industrial 3 to residential growth would open it up for aged-care and residential development up to four storeys high. But the land’s rezoning could “elevate the potential for the Hobsons Bay Caravan Park to be closed”, according to the report. “It is anticipated that the amendment process and potential rezoning will take approximately 12 to 18 months to resolve,” the report states. “The council is working with the owner of the land to ensure that adequate arrangements are in place to assist people who live on the land to find alternative accommodation in the event that the caravan park closes. “There are also lease and tenancy laws that must be followed by the owner if the caravan park is to close some time in the future.” But, according to the report, “it is understood that there is no proposal at this time to close the Hobsons Bay Caravan Park”. The report says the main environmental concern is soil contamination, but the site can be remediated. Goya Dmytryshchak

Cash cut may shut new ward (Supplied)

By Xavier Smerdon

Mickey D and Damian Callinan

Duo in search of a vibe Comedians Damian Callinan and Mickey D are headed for Williamstown and Werribee to film suburban documentaries for their Road Trip shows. Locals are being invited to fill out a survey with suggestions of where the pair should film during their two-day suburban adventures. The survey asks: “What is great? What is terrible? What would you like them to explore?” Asked if it was really possible to film a road trip in just one suburb, Mickey D, aka Michael Dwyer, was enthusiastic. “Yes, totally! The great thing about Road Trip is that we are on the hunt for the essence, the characters, the friendly underbelly. “No matter how big or small the town, village or city may be, we aim to capture the local vibe through the eyes of a visitor. We then set about

playfully celebrating the fine and not so finer points of the area.” Dwyer and Mickey D will be filming in Williamstown on June 16 and 17. He is happy to take any dares, recommendations and local tips at the FB page: www.facebook.com/ roadtripwithmickeyddamiancallinan.” Road Trip will be screened at Williamstown’s Mechanics Institute on June 18 and Wyndham Cultural Centre in Werribee on June 21. Visit www.hobsonsbaytickets.com.au or www.wyncc.com.au/whats_on/road_trip or phone 9932 4074 or 8734 6000.

A new $28 million building at Werribee Mercy Hospital is in danger of closing just four months after it opened because of federal and state budget pressures. The Catherine McAuley Centre is a rehabilitation and geriatric medicine complex built to cater for patients in Melbourne’s west who are recovering from surgery or serious injury. The two-storey building, opened in February, offers an in-patient ward with 30 multi-day beds, eight two-bed rooms and 14 single-bed rooms. It also includes a gymnasium, meeting rooms, staff rooms and offices on the ground floor. But Lalor MP Joanne Ryan said funding cuts to Mercy Health, which runs the hospital, could close the new sub-acute and rehab facility. Mercy Health executive director of health services Dr Linda Mellors confirmed that federal funding for sub-acute services in the new building would end on June 30. “We’re now waiting on our budget for the next financial year,” she said. “The rehabilitation and geriatric evaluation and management beds have been full almost since we opened. “These services were desperately needed and I’m certain the community would be disadvantaged if they were no longer available.” Ms Ryan said Mercy Health had been hit with funding cuts of $29.4 million over the next four years. “Mercy Health in Werribee has well-trained

and dedicated staff; some of the top experts in Victoria choose to work at this service,” Ms Ryan said. “But this makes their task so much harder. Not only is there no new money to fund for growth, it cuts expected operation funding. This will have an immediate impact. “This funding cut has the potential to put the brand new sub-acute and rehab facility under threat of closure.” A spokesman for federal Health Minister Peter Dutton said health funding to Victoria would rise from $3.46 billion in 2013-14 to $4.69 billion by 2017-18.

‘‘

We need further investment, not cuts



’’

- Joanne Ryan

“In regards to sub-acute beds, Ms Ryan knows full well that was a one-off funding arrangement,” the spokesman said. Ms Ryan said that when compared to Labor’s last budget, the Abbott government was investing $3.2 billion less for public hospitals and Wyndham residents could not afford to see health services go backwards. “We’re a high-growth area that requires further investment, not cuts. Star Weekly revealed in May that Werribee Mercy had missed out on $85 million requested from the state government for new operating theatres, an in-patient unit, central sterile supply department, and eight critical-care beds.

Tea time for book chook By Benjamin Millar Not content with making his mark on Paris, Mister Chicken is again flying the coop, this time taking London by storm. From Trafalgar Square to Big Ben via a spot of tea with the Queen, the favourite feathery creation of Williamstown artist and author Leigh Hobbs is back for a new adventure, this time inspired by a city very close to his creator’s heart. Hobbs has visited London more than 20 times, drawn again and again by the chance to stroll streets with layer upon layer of history. “Since I was a kid of 12 I’ve had ambitions: one was to be an artist, the other was to go to England,” he says. “London is not the most beautiful city in the world – Paris is far more beautiful – but I have always had $ an interest in English history. As a boy itVwas E castles, knights and pirates; as I got SA my fascination shifted to architecture older and art.” Mr Chicken Goes To Paris was adapted for a stage production and shortlisted for the Prime Minister’s Literary Awards, and has been a steady seller in the Louvre Museum bookshop in Paris. Yet despite its success, Hobbs wasn’t planning another adventure until it dawned on him that having Mr Chicken visit London was a way to create a love story for the place. “During my last few visits I started doing some drawings – what would he do, where would he go?,” he says. Mr Chicken Lands On London will be launched at the Sun Bookshop in Yarraville from 4pm Wednesday, June 25. Children are being encouraged to take paper and pencils.

Vision of what lies beneath (Supplied)

By Benjamin Millar

Kinder training a good fit A Newport kindergarten is pioneering personal training for its three and four-year-olds. Home Road Kindergarten has teamed with Williamstown fitness club Healthy Fit to run fitness activities for children. An Active Healthy Kids Report Card recently ranked Australia 11th out of 14 nations on physical activity levels. The report, compiled by universities and research institutes, gave Australian children a D- for physical activity levels after finding 80 per cent of children aged 5-17 were not doing the recommended 60 minutes of exercise a day. The kinder’s educational leader, Lynsey Leong, said the fitness program was aimed at getting the children healthy and interested in sport. “It’s a huge part of their physical development, especially at a really young age –

that’s when they master skills,” she said. “They build a lot of confidence through what they can do physically. If they have races, they always want to win, and it’s all about, ‘I can do this’.” Ms Leong said many families could not afford to pay for their children to do physical activities like Auskick or dance classes outside kinder. Healthy Fit instructors have been teaching children to do push-ups and sit-ups and take part in sprints, obstacle courses and games. Ms Leong said the kids can’t wait to see their instructors. “We don’t force the children to do something they don’t want to do,” she said. “It’s all fun. It’s all in the name of play and experimenting, and the kids love that.”

The random undercurrents of life have inspired Yarraville dancer Paea Leach’s latest creation for leading dance company Chunky Move. The performer and choreographer said her piece, the lines of birds, looked at the pathways people create, like desire lines walked into cities, and the idea of ‘‘ruptures’’ breaking up linear forms. “I’m looking at things that travel in a linear fashion, how you make steps in a logical way, but it’s more interesting to me to look at what’s underneath, the undercurrents of something else emerging in this space,” she said. Leach traces her love of dance back to early childhood in Newcastle, where a false start in ballet was rescued by the discovery of contemporary dance. She moved to Perth and trained at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, going on to perform and teach nationally and internationally with Chunky Move, Australian Dance Theatre and Perth Theatre Company. Leach said her latest piece was one of three brought together for the show It Cannot Be Stopped, alongside works by rising talents Atlanta Eke and Benjamin Hancock. The performance involves three dancers and musicians Madeleine Flynn and Tim Humphrey, who will draw on ambient sounds to create a unique score for each show. “I’m really interested in collaboration, in how people come together to create something together,” Leach said. “This has been really

challenging, but I love how you can build a new language in this grey area between us.’’ ‘‘I think because the process has been really rigorous, this is reflected in the work and I have a great feeling about how it will turn out.” It Cannot Be Stopped is at Chunky Move Studios, 111 Sturt Street, Southbank from June 19-29. Tickets: $20-$30. To book, visit www. chunkymove.com or phone 9645 5188.

Ring road ‘robbed’ of funds By Xavier Smerdon The state and federal governments have been accused of jeopardising safety and risking more congestion on the Western Ring Road by diverting $500 million in funding to the East-West Link. Opposition roads spokesman Luke Donnellan said the money would have been used to fund vital upgrades to the Western Ring Road.

“The Abbott and Napthine governments have essentially stolen $500 million from the Western Ring Road upgrades to pump up their dud east-west tunnel, which still has no business case and won’t reduce congestion for thousands of motorists across Melbourne’s west for more than a decade,” he said. Keilor MP Natalie Hutchins said the western suburbs needed the Western Ring Road to continue to be upgraded.

“The road is one of Melbourne’s most important transport links, and ripping away funding from the project will mean more congestion and less safety in years to come,” Ms Hutchins said. According to Labor, the $500 million was originally intended as part of a $2.25 billion project that would have provided extra lanes and improved signage and signals along the Western Ring Road. More than 130,000 vehicles use the busiest

section of the road – between the Tullamarine Freeway and Pascoe Vale Road – every day. In April, Prime Minister Tony Abbott announced he would contribute $1.5 billion to fund the western section of the East West Link, meaning stages one and two of construction would take place almost simultaneously. Star Weekly contacted the state government for comment, but it did not respond before deadline.

Doing white by our youth A new initiative by a Footscray charity is helping households across Maribyrnong while providing young people with valuable training. Kids Off The Kerb’s white goods recycling program collects unwanted items such as fridges, freezers, washing machines and clothes dryers. Community partnerships manager Mark Young said donated items were refurbished, broken down for spare parts or recycled as scrap metal. “There is zero landfill in the process and a range of affordable second-hand white goods stock is created,” he said. “Funds from the resale of refurbished white goods support Kids Off The Kerb initiatives including training, development and employment opportunities for young people and the Footscray youth support service.” For more details, phone 9918 7999.

Life Activities is coming to Maribyrnong

Steering young drivers to a safe road A new Activities Club is launching in Yarraville on 16 April and you are invited!

By Xavier Smerdon Young drivers from Melbourne’s west are being given a helping hand to ensure they know how to stay safe when behind the wheel. Courtney Harman, pictured, is a program leader with Fit2Drive (F2D), an initiative that breaks down the barriers between lecturers and students to help the road safety message sink in. Ms Harman, 24, has been travelling to high schools throughout the west to arm mainly year 11 students with the knowledge they need to be safer drivers.

“I found out about the program when they came to my university to hold a workshop,” Ms Harman said. “I was studying teaching and this seemed like it would be a lot of fun but it also had some really good messages.” Ms Harman said F2D was not about standing in front of students and telling them what to do, a tactic that often had a negative effect. “Road safety is not seen as cool, which is something that needs to change,” she said. “It’s not about telling them ‘You will die if you don’t listen to us’, it’s about giving them

The chairperson of RoadSafe which funds F2D, said young drivers had a higher risk of being involved in an accident. “They comprise a small proportion of licensed drivers yet are substantially more involved and over-represented in road crashes, fatalities and injuries,” Jim Giddings said. The Victorian Community Road Safety Partnership Program has provided funding to support RoadSafe Westgate in addressing road safety issues throughout the west.

Paperwork out, smart policing in By Charlene Macaulay Chief Commissioner Ken Lay wants to overhaul the current Victoria Police system in favour of a more flexible model that will maximise crime fighting. Mr Lay last week released a Victoria Police Blue Paper which outlines a 10-year strategic plan that assigns police numbers and creates taskforces based on population growth, societal changes and crime statistics. The Blue Paper reveals that the demand

for urgent police response via triple-0 calls is outpacing population growth; serious and organised crime is growing rapidly; and the true extent of crimes like family violence, sexual abuse and fraud is not yet reflected in crime statistics. The report also found that about half of a police officer’s time on each shift was spent in the station doing paperwork. The Blue Paper looks at outsourcing administrative work and back-of-office jobs, such as IT and payroll, to leave officers free to

get on with the job of policing. Mr Lay said the Blue Paper advocated a more technologicallysavvy policeforce able to maximise its time spent out in the community. “We must shift the balance of police activities further towards prevention,” he said. “We need to get smarter so we can respond to complex social issues such as family violence and drugs, and tackle crime before it happens. But to do this, we need a more flexible model that allows us the freedom to deploy our police members where they are needed, when they are needed.”

Police Minister Kim Wells backed the Blue Paper last week. He said frontline taskforces that had already been set up by the chief commissioner were more effectively targeting key crime areas, such as family violence, organised crime, outlaw motorcycle gangs, road safety and the drug trade. Crime statistics released last month show a 2.5 per cent increase in overall crime across Brimbank, with a 9 per cent increase in drug offences and decreases in car thefts, residential burglaries, street assaults and property damage.

It’s enriching to be among these kids and a gift to see their resilience.” Burma has been a war-torn country since 1948. Before coming to Australia, many of the children taking part in the sessions had only known life in a refugee camp on the Thai border. A research project funded by Hobsons Bay council’s community grants program found that members of the Karen community, many of whom have settled in Laverton and Wyndham, feel isolated because of their lack of English skills. Ms Ashcroft says art therapy gives children a way to express themselves. More details at: www.artoflifewithmairead.com. Aye and Suzie

A new art therapy course in Werribee is helping child asylum seekers and refugees from Burma find their place in Australian culture. Altona Meadows art therapist Mairead Ashcroft says the project, for children aged 9-12, is sometimes heartbreaking. “We had a student social worker with us last week; she had to leave the room because she was crying [after hearing their stories],’’ Ms Ashcroft said. “The aim of the therapy session is to enable the kids to feel part of the community and value themselves as an integral part of it. “We did a meditation where I planted a seed on top of their heads and they imagined themselves growing in to a tree.

Former child soldier David Nyuol Vincent will speak at Williamstown library as part of local activities marking Refugee Week (June 15-21). Vincent’s book, The Boy Who Wouldn’t Die, tells of his barefoot march across the Sahara from South Sudan to Ethiopia as an eight-year-old. One of Sudan’s ‘‘Lost Boys’’, Vincent was trained as a child soldier in the Sudan People’s Liberation Army and spent many years in refugee camps before coming to Australia in 2004. “I’ll be sharing my life story, my journey as a refugee,” he said. “I left South Sudan when I was eight, lived in a refugee camp in Ethiopia for four years and then had another 12 years in Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya.’’ The Lost Boys was a group who fled during Sudan’s second civil war, in 1986-87. ‘‘Most of us were between eight and 10 and we headed down to Ethiopia and then to Kenya,’’ Vincent said. “We walked from my village in Ethiopia for three months. ‘‘We were scared and didn’t have anything to eat, but then there were a lot of people around … there were some elders who were looking after us. “There were over 20,000 of us at the end, when we arrived at the final destination.” The free author talk will be held in the gallery at Williamstown library from 6.15pm on June 18. Hobsons Bay council will publicly sign a refugee ‘‘welcome zone’’ declaration with the Refugee Council of Australia at Laverton Community Hub at 10am on June 17. Deputy mayor Colleen Gates said the

The show recreates what is hailed as one of the wildest performances in rock history. Smith says the live album was a perfect portrayal of a man “seriously jacked up on his own ego, emotions and only god knows what”. “This show, being somewhat a rock’n’roll train crash at times, is a perfect record full of nothing but unscripted high-energy piano blues.” Smith will perform at Yarraville Live, 135 Stephen Street.

FB: How would you rate your cooking skills? EG: My cooking skills are improving. Since becoming a mum, I definitely spend more time in the kitchen and have come to really enjoy baking. I love making muffins and home-made muesli bars for the kids. FB: What is your signature dish? EG: A chilli-tuna pasta. It’s extra zingy thanks to some lemon zest added at the end. FB: If you could only have one more meal, what would it be? EG: Hmmmmm – chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate? No? OK, maybe sushi or sashimi for entree, a beautiful slow-roasted leg of lamb and vegies for main, then a chocolate fondant with lashings of cream for dessert.

MUM’s THE WORD Erin Giansiracusa is the creator of The Mum’s Group, an online community where mums can find support, get advice, share their experiences and even make a new friend or two.

FB: What is your favourite food? EG: Chocolate. Sorry, boring but true.

Erin’s website (www.themumsgroup.com.au) features yummy recipes for time-poor parents and food-related articles, including a piece on Melbourne’s top kid-friendly cafés and restaurants.

FB: What is your favourite drink? EG: Coffee. But that’s a necessity with two (soon to be three) kids under four!

“As a new mum, I found so much support from my own mother’s group, but along the way I have learnt not everyone has the same experience,” Erin says. “I thought, what better way to support all of the mums out there, than to create our very online mum’s group?” With two beautiful boys – Gus and Eddie – and another baby on the way, Erin has a few tricks up her sleeve when it comes to cooking. Investing in a Thermomix is one of them. Erin was happy to chat to Food Bytes about her kitchen capers … not to mention her love of chocolate!

FB: Which five people would you most like to invite to dinner? EG: It might sound cheesy, but I would have to say my husband and children. And maybe Dora the Explorer to entertain the kids while we eat. FB: Do you have a kitchen tip for us? EG: A Thermomix! It is truly a remarkable piece of equipment and has changed my cooking entirely. Also don’t be afraid to stray from the recipe occasionally and add your own flair. That’s when the best dishes are created. Erin’s eBook – What I Wish I Knew About Pregnancy – is available at www.themumsgroup.com.au

KIDDIES FOOD KUTTER

Since we’re on the subject of kids, a great gadget I discovered at the Werribee Harvest Picnic is the Kiddies Food Kutter. With its stainless-steel rounded teeth, no sharp edges and specially designed handle, it teaches kids to cut their own food safely at the dinner table. That’s one less job for mum and dad! Adult supervision is required.

(Sup plied )

It’s a tough name to pronounce, but Cuiabá (koo-ya-ba), the capital of Brazil’s western state of Mato Grosso, offers many attractions. The city’s new Arena Pantanal will host Australia’s first match in the 2014 World Cup against Chile on June 13. With a capacity of 43,000, the stadium can hold almost 10 per cent of the city’s 550,000 inhabitants. Surrounded by fazendas, or farms, stocked with big white Brahman cattle, the town reflects its cowboy roots. Basking in tropical heat as it does, expect a Brazilian kind of Cairns or Townsville, complete with steak houses and boot-scooting live music barns. But with sertanejo (sur-ta-ney-oh) music blasting from taxis, buses, bars and clubs, Cuiabá does things a bit differently from Australia’s northern cities. It’s a form of folky dance with guitars and accordion, and Cuiabános love it. No trip into the state of Mato Grosso is complete without a night at one of the clubs, watching Cuiabános let down their hair. Dancing, and we don’t mean the Melbourne shuffle, is the focus. The energy and flair of the dances, put on mainly by amateurs, would make some popular TV dance shows pack up and go home. Outside Cuiabá, a short drive away, is the Pantanal, a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the world’s largest tropical wetlands. Mid-year is high season, so book ahead to cruise the wetlands by boat. Or ride a horse and see birds and South American wildlife of Attenborough proportions, including giant anteaters, giant otters, and the world’s largest rodent, the capybara. You might even spot an elusive jaguar. One surprise is that, as well as its yacare caiman (a species of small crocodile), Brazil has a variety of the emu, the ema (or rhea), and a big, white, red and black bird called a jabiru. Australians will feel almost at home.

Auction: June 21 at

If all the house renovation shows on TV have enthused you to take on the challenge of giving a place a new lease on life, then this Victorian dame in Newport could be the one for you. The once-grand residence has retained period features, including pressed metal ceilings, ornate fireplaces, Baltic pine floorboards and leadlight windows, but needs some TLC to bring it back up to scratch. There are three large bedrooms, one with built-in wardrobes, a bathroom, lounge-dining space and kitchen with freestanding oven. The house could be extended or the 550-square-metre property developed, subject to council approval. It’s in a great location, too, with Newport Park and station, a kindergarten, Sacred Heart Primary School, restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Kingsville 96 Chirnside Street Raising The Bar For All That Follow

UNDER OFFER

The term ´renovation´ doesn´t come close to doing justice to this stunning three bedroom, two bathroom residence. ´Re-invention´ is a better description for the fabulous contemporary spaces found behind a façade that retains all the elegance of its Victorian origins. Tasmanian Oak floorboards and generous proportions define living and dining areas surrounding an open plan kitchen where Hafele hardware, Caesar-stone benches and stainless steel appliances reflect a perfectionist´s approach. Merbau decking, drought tolerant landscaping and secure garage accessed from Webb Street provide outdoor appeal to match indoor allure, further enhanced by a zoned heating/ refrigerated cooling, zoned alarm, surround sound wiring and Jetmaster gas fire place. A fresh benchmark for Kingsville - and far beyond.

Pinot vines in Tasmania

When it comes to Australian pinot noir, three wine regions stand tall: the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula and Tasmania. With Mornington and the Yarra just up the road, we’re lucky their wines are so accessible. Tasmania, on the other hand, feels like the final frontier for pinot noir. A quick browse of a wine list in Hobart or a shop in Launceston can feel like a walk through Aladdin’s cave for a pinot lover, with unknown wines at every turn. At the moment there are about 160 wine producers in Tasmania, but only 60 or so send wines to the mainland. Demand for local wine in Tasmania is so strong that many producers don’t need to send the wines over Bass Strait. There’s the odd occasion when a pinot will make it onto a single Melbourne restaurant’s wine list because the sommelier is a friend of the winemaker or has helped out at the winery during the vintage harvest. All the big wine companies want a pinot noir in their portfolio from the state that produces just 0.5 per cent of Australia’s wine. From big corporates such as Accolade Wines (Bay of Fires and Arras) and Treasury Wine Estates (Heemskerk and Abel’s Tempest) to family-owned producers such as Brown Brothers (Devil’s Corner) and Shaw + Smith (Tolpuddle), they all have a foot in the door. Pinot noir is the state’s most widely planted grape, but there’s not all that much pinot to go around – just 5000 tonnes of pinot noir grapes were picked in 2013. A large proportion of that went into sparkling wine production. To put this volume into perspective, there are

wineries in the Barossa and Riverina that can process more than Tasmania’s annual pinot noir crop in a day. Despite all the interest from mainland producers, there hasn’t been a huge investment in wine infrastructure and many large producers ship grapes to the mainland to be processed at their wineries. Others ferment and crush their grapes on the island and ship the juice to their wineries to finish the maturation process. So why does everyone want a piece of Tasmania’s pinot noir pie? Tasmania is considered a marginal climate for growing grapes and its cool days mean grapes take a long time to ripen. Extra time on the vines helps them develop deeper flavours while retaining acid levels. Many Tasmanian wineries harvest their pinot into May, while most mainland pinot-producing regions have their wines fermented and tucked away for a rest in oak barrels by then. The further south you go, vineyards tend to be planted on sheltered or north-facing sites that give them enough sunlight to ripen. Still, it’s not guaranteed the grapes will ripen properly. Tracking down Tassie pinot noir You don’t need to visit Tasmania to track down its elusive pinot noir. Buy direct from the wineries or check out the Pinot Shop, run by Michele Round. Round regularly secures allocations of pinot from Tasmania’s smallest and most sought-after pinot noir producers. Based in Launceston, Pinot Shop has a range of mixed pinot cases and ships to the mainland for $14 a case. Ben thomas travelled to Tasmania as a guest of Heemskerk

SPORT BULLDOGS IN FOCUS In a regular series, Western Bulldogs president Peter Gordon and player Jordan Roughead write exclusively for Star Weekly

Together, we will get better

Still living the dream

od, I hate losing. And while Brisbane played well at the weekend, I’m sick to death of acknowledging the improvement of our competitors. We are not in this competition to make up the bloody numbers. We have to lift. We all have to try harder and get better, from the president down. Nothing is more important than winning games of footy.  Here are my other messages to you. 1.  We will expect maximum effort and competency from every director and employee of this club to help us to lift … players, coaches, physios, weight coaches, you name it. 2. Some so-called supporters have the nerve to write to me complaining about effort by the team when they haven’t even renewed their membership or, having renewed it, haven’t honoured their payments obligations.  To those so-called members and supporters, to quote  Elvis … “Clean up your own backyard before you come lecturing me”. 3. Some other so-called experts write that these kind of performances mean we will soon be out of existence. Time for a reality check!  We will make a profit this year. We’ll have paid down $2 million off club debt by season’s end. We’ve cemented an historic equalisation agreement with the AFL which provides us with better financial security and opportunity than we have ever had. Our membership will be in the top three in our AFL history, even with three years of indifferent on-field performances.  We’ve cleared years of roadblocks to our $30 million Edgewater facility and it opens early next year. If that sounds to you like an organisation going out of existence, time to go back to business school. 4. I’m proud of all those things. But if anyone thinks any of us is happy to see us puddle along with a 20-something per cent win-loss ratio, they don’t know me and they don’t know us. We will get better.

had a discussion with my mum recently about life, and how mine had panned out so far. We spoke about how fortunate I am to have been dealt this hand. I still have to pinch myself occasionally that I’m playing football for the team I barracked so hard for growing up. The conversation took me back to a moment that will forever be etched in my brain — the moment I became a Bulldogs player. Leading into the 2008 draft, I was hopeful of being picked up. But it was unlikely to be the Bulldogs as I hadn’t had any discussions with them. On draft day, my family and I were huddled over a laptop, listening to a streaming service that my IT-obsessed brother had set up for us. I memorised my registration number, so that I would know a second or two before anyone else if I was drafted. Player number 208223 was read out, and by the Western Bulldogs. In an instant, the dream I’m now living had begun. I often think about my dad’s reaction. It was understated, but I could tell just how proud he was, having played in the red, white and blue in 1974. Dad was a reliable ruckman before being struck down by a serious knee injury after 13 reserves games. He loved the club – he still does – and I get a feeling his teammates liked him, too. People tell me he was dependable on and off the field, as he has been as a father and mentor. Not long after my number was read out our phone rang. It was Daniel Giansiracusa. Gia congratulated me and said he looked forward to catching up at the club. That call meant a lot. Football has its associated pressures and setbacks, but after six years at the kennel, I still believe that I’m the luckiest Bulldogs supporter I know.

Roosters face reality checks West Footscray’s premiership credentials will be tested in coming weeks. After a flying start to the Western Region Football League division 2 season, in which the Roosters won seven of their first eight games, the club sits third on the ladder. But with games against the top-six trio of Manor Lakes, Parkside and Glen Orden in the next four rounds, West Footscray coach Trevor Davies knows his side will need to be at its best to retain its place. “We’re very pleased with where we’re at,” Davies said. “We know we have a couple of tough assignments coming up in the next month. We have been working towards them with our structures and our ball use.” After finishing 10th in last year’s division 2 season, the Roosters underwent a revamp in the off-season with Davies signing on as head coach and a number of recruits joining the club. Of them, Damien Yze has been the clear standout after dominating up forward throughout the first eight rounds. He has kicked 58 goals, including three bags of 11 or more. Davies said the new-look playing group had developed quicker than he expected. “We always thought that as the season progressed we would get better as a playing group,” he said. “That’s happening and it’s still going to get better. “That was always the worry in the first six weeks – that the playing group was just getting to know each other and how to play together. “We were always confident that the more games we got into this particular group, the better we would be.” It isn’t just the form of the senior side that is generating smiles at West Footscray.

Brave Gulls go down fighting

The club’s reserves’ side is undefeated after eight rounds and is in second spot on the ladder. Davies said there was a great feeling around the club. “It’s a really positive environment at the moment, which is good,” he said.

“Obviously winning games of football promotes a positive environment. We have had a couple of functions at the club and it’s a really positive environment off the field as well.” Liam Twomey

Altona put up a brave showing before succumbing 5-4 to Powerhouse-St Kilda in men’s premier league hockey last week. The Seagulls made the perfect start at the State Hockey Centre when Andrew Scanlon converted a penalty stroke. But the lead was short lived as defender Jake MacVean deflected the ball into his own net to equalise. The goal inspired Powerhouse, which scored three times in 20 minutes from two penalty corner flicks and a goal from an Altona mistake. Altona then regained the ascendency and defender Chris Coleman made it 4-2 with a flick from a penalty corner. As Seagulls strikers Cale Rout and Patrick Phillips put enormous pressure on the Powerhouse defenders, a turnover found Chris Porter with the ball and his shot hit a defender on the goal line. Scanlon converted and Alton went in to half time trailing 4-3. But the comeback hit a snag in the second half when Powerhouse scored a fifth goal. A long overhead pass cleared Altona’s attacking press and a Powerhouse forward won the race for the ball to shoot into the bottom of the net. Phillips made it 5-4 and an Altona equaliser proved elusive. Seagulls’ co-coach Steve Ritchie was disappointed to concede five goals. “Conceding that many makes it difficult to win.” Altona will play Doncaster at Grant Reserve this week. 59 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY STAR WEEKLY \ JUNE 11, 2014

Altona hopes coach can recapture Magic Altona Magic Soccer Club will be coached by Stuart McCloskey for the rest of the State League 1 season. The appointment of McCloskey was announced on Thursday. Former coach Pece Stojcevski parted ways with Altona after three consecutive losses, the last of which was against Sunbury United in round nine. Magic secretary Zoran Milenkovski said it had been a disappointing start to the season for the club. “We’re sitting second-bottom on the ladder and that’s a place we don’t want to be,” he said. “He [Stojcevski] felt it was time to move on for the best interests of the club; he resigned after the Sunbury game.”

McCloskey brings a wealth of experience, having played in the Scottish Premier League with Dundee United and St Johns in the early 2000s. He moved to Australia in 2007 and started playing with Richmond Soccer Club. Milenkovski said it was great to secure someone with McCloskey’s experience. “We heard he was available and had a meeting with him on the Sunday. It sounded good and promising and we believed it was an opportunity to pounce on,” he said. “Hopefully, he can bring us to where we need to get to. “He took his first training session last Tuesday. The atmosphere among the players has already changed.

“The players have an opportunity to redeem themselves from all the bad results of recent times.” McCloskey has been signed for the rest of the season, with the two parties to review things after the final home and away match. The Magic will look to get off to the perfect start under its new coach when it takes on Westgate FC at Paisley Park this Saturday. Milenkovski said the club was looking to have an impact this season and beyond. “We want to finish as high as possible because we do have ambitions to rejoin top-flight football at state level, which is the National Premier League. That’s our main aim.’’ Liam Twomey

Wayward Gulls top Tigers By Liam Twomey

The headline read: “I’m gay and I play footy. What’s the big deal?” It was a recent article in The Age written by Rhyian Anderson-Morley, who plays in the WRFL for the Yarraville Seddon Eagles. People have asked me what I thought of the article as I have been involved in the league for many years. For me, the headline says it all. What’s the big deal? I consider it a non-issue, and judging by the little reaction I’ve seen to it, so do most people. Was it brave of Rhyian to go public? Probably. Was it necessary? In my opinion, probably not. He wrote that some of his teammates had already asked him about his sexual orientation and he was honest in his answer. To me, that means everyone already knew before he addressed the group. No one sits on that sort of information in a club; it spreads like wildfire. Is homophobia alive and well in football? Of course it is, because football is a part of society and brings together people from different professions, backgrounds, religions, socio-economic groups – you name it. Football still has racist issues, especially at suburban level where the ethnic diversity of the participants is even more concentrated. The question Rhyian asks at the end of his article is interesting: is football ready for an openly gay player? We have had one in Jason Ball for a number of years, playing in the amateurs, and there has been nothing but support for him. Homosexuality is not an issue in female sports so why is it portrayed as the elephant in the men’s locker room? Is it sponsorship and the effect it might have on the mighty sports dollar? Probably, but I feel that public opinion and the media attention would make any sponsor think long and hard about withdrawing sponsorship. I hope Rhyian is the last footballer who feels the need to stand in front of his teammates and talk about his sexual preference. Let’s get on with the game.

Williamstown made it 11 consecutive wins against Werribee after edging out its Victorian Football League rival by nine points on Sunday. Both teams went into the game at Burbank Oval in outstanding form, but it was Werribee that made the most of its early chances. First-quarter goals to Ben Brown, Ben Warren, Kieran Harper and Jye Bolton allowed the Tigers to open up an eight-point lead at quarter-time. The Seagulls weren’t without their chances in front of the big sticks and were left to rue a wasteful two goals from eight scoring shots. That inaccuracy continued during the second term, with Werribee able to stay in front despite having just three scoring shots to Williamstown’s six. The shackles were far from lifted after half-time, with majors still at a premium. But in front of their home fans, Williamstown’s players were able to find another gear. Having trailed by one point at threequarter-time, the Seagulls hit the lead early in the final term after a good passage of play from Jack Dorgan allowed Nicholas Sing to mark and goal. That gave the Seagulls the lead. The margin was soon extended after Ed Carr roved a ball in the pocket and snapped truly. Werribee wasn’t about to give up without a fight and cut the eight-point margin to just two points with a goal to Jason Robinson. But it was Williamstown that came out on top, with former Tiger turned Seagull Scott Clouston kicking a goal against his old team to seal the 9.20 (74) to 9.11 (65) win. Fresh from his dominant display against the South Australian National Football League in the state representative game, Adam Marcon was again brilliant and clearly among the best players for the Seagulls. He was well supported by Clouston, who finished with two goals, while Ben Jolley also worked hard. For Werribee, on a day when goals were hard to come by, Warren worked hard up forward and finished with three majors. Williamstown (6-3) held onto third spot on the VFL ladder, while the Tigers slipped to sixth. The Seagulls hit the road to take on Box Hill Hawks when round 10 gets under way on Saturday. Werribee will look to force its way back into the top four when it hosts Essendon at Avalon Airport Oval on Sunday. For more photos, visit www. maribyrnong.starweekly.com.au.

MOTOR Briefs Peugeot packs a punch

Peugeot Australia has launched the eagerly anticipated RCZ R – the most powerful road-going car the brand has ever produced. Despite considerable engineering modifications, the RCZ R (pictured) is priced from just $68,990, $10,000 more than the RCZ. At its heart is a vast range of mechanical upgrades. Inspired by the Peugeot RCZ Racing Cup track car, and riding 10mm lower to the ground, the range-topping sports coupé is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 199kW of power and 330Nm of torque. Weighing just 1280kg, it sprints to 100km/h in just 5.9 seconds – almost two seconds quicker than the RCZ. Now on sale, it’s available in four colours: Moroccan red, perla nera black, mercury grey and opal white.

Audi updates Sportback range

Audi has unveiled its new A7 Sportback, which has new engine configurations, transmissions, headlights, tail-lights and infotainment systems. The most striking changes are to the grille, bumpers, tailpipes and headlights. LED technology is now standard. Pricing and specification of the Sportback range will be announced closer to its Australian launch early next year.

Electric van going postal

Australia Post is trialling Renault’s Electric Kangoo Z.E. (zero emissions) van for 12 months. It’s the first time the fully electric vehicle has been used in Australia. Renault Australia currently supplies Australia Post’s normal delivery vans. The Kangoo Z.E. has been on sale in Europe since late 2011. More than 14,000 have been sold worldwide. The first two Kangoo Z.E. vehicles will be delivered to Australia Post this month.

Lavish Volvo a cut above

Efficiency, smarts par for course By David Bonnici While it doesn’t share the excitement of it’s GTi sibling, the Volkswagen Golf 90TSI Comfortline is the perfect car for city diving. It’s well put together and brimming with technology, providing safety, comfort and remarkable fuel efficiency, even for a small car. There’s not much it does doesn’t have – from 360-degree parking sensors and low-pressure tyre indicator to a driver fatigue warning system that can recognise if your driving is getting erratic and beeps to wake you up. The interior is smartly presented and uncluttered, with no cheap-looking plastic to be seen. There’s also no handbrake lever – in its place is a much smaller switch that controls the electro-mechanical parking brake. The dashboard and steering wheel are a mass of lights and switches, though there’s nothing confusing about the layout.

The 5.8-inch “composition media” touchscreen typifies the Golf’s usability. It displays radio, MP3 player and phone functions, park assist and real-time information about the car’s performance. Bluetooth connectivity is flawless. Park assist expands on reverse assist, with sensors around the car. While the camera only shows the reverse view, a graphic of the car appears with a series of distance markers that start flashing, along with an audible sonar-like warning, if you’re close to any objects. It’s handy for obstacles below window height such as bollards, high curbs or all the crap strewn about my garage. So what’s it go like? It has a 1.4 litre engine that won’t break speed records, but doesn’t struggle either. It cruises nicely on 100km/h, and if you want to get there faster the 7-speed automatic transmission has a semi-manual mode, which gives this car some zing. It’s incredibly fuel efficient too, helped by

Volvo has launched its all-new XC90 SUV, featuring what the Swedish carmaker says is the most luxurious interior designed for its cars. At its heart is the tablet-like touchscreen control console, which operates an all-new, in-car control system that’s virtually button free and represents an entirely new way for drivers to control their car and access internet-based products and services. The interior combines soft leather and wood with handcrafted details such as a crystal gear lever and diamond-cut controls for the start/stop button and volume control.

Fiat’s Abarth 595 50th anniversary model, the fastest and most powerful 595 ever, is available in Australia. Only 50 examples of the limited-edition model have been secured for Australia. Prices start at $45,000. Power comes from Fiat’s turbocharged, four-cylinder 1.4-litre T-Jet, which has been boosted to 132kW/250Nm, thanks to an overboost function activated by pressing the ‘sport’ button to adjust electronic control unit mapping and turbocharger boost pressure. It will sound the part too, thanks to the variable back-pressure exhaust designed to improve engine performance. The retro homage to the 1963 Abarth includes three-layer white paintwork, red leather sports seats with white inserts and red stitching, and sunroof.

Taken by two-door Toyota

Toyota’s popular 86 coupé has proven a hit in Australia, with almost one out of every 10 examples built being sold here. The 86 has helped rejuvenate the Toyota’s brand with an influx of young new customers. The last time Toyota sold more than 6700 of a sports model in a year was 1980 (Celica).

MOTOR

HQ: radical outside, simple within By Ewan Kennedy The 1960s and early ’70s were periods of frantic change in the car industry and, amazingly, the HQ Holden was the fourth all-new Holden body in just 10 years. The pace finally slowed and HQ-based variants lasted into the mid-1980s. The first major change was the increase in size of both six-cylinder engines. The 161-cubicinch motor grew to 173 cubic inches and the 186 grew to 202. Both of the Australian 253 and 308-cubic-inch V8s continued unaltered as did the Chevrolet 350 V8. In the suspension department further changes were evident as this was the first Holden to have coil springs all round. The demise of semi-elliptic rear springs was bemoaned by some, but anyone who drove quickly on dirt roads was delighted by the change. Such a suspension was, however, too soft for the enthusiast driver. A further change was the placement of the handbrake, now located on the floor on the driver’s side of the seat, not under the dash as in previous Holdens. The entry-level Belmont model was aimed mainly at fleet buyers, while the famous Kingswood was intended for the family buyer. In the standard wheelbase range the top of the line was the Premier. Station wagons were built on a longer wheelbase than the sedans for the first time and this platform was also used for the long-wheelbase Statesman and Statesman De Ville. These shared the HQ door panels and front guards but had a unique grille, roofline and rear guards. The Holden One-tonner (called at the time the cab-chassis) used a slightly crude ute-style front-end with a rugged full chassis behind it. It became a hit with Australian tradesmen due to

its rugged construction and big-engined torque. Lines of the Kingswood were radical in their day and had a lot of knockers. The body featured a big glass area with narrow, but strong, pillars. The simple front end style of the HQ was never beaten, despite many attempts with later facelifts. If there was a real criticism it was that the ridges along the sides were easily damaged

in car parks. Load area was considerably bigger in the wagon than the sedan, due to the sedan having a tail that sloped down steeply. The longer wheelbase also helped to provide more room. Although the HQ exterior was radical in its concept, the interior could be ordered in a surprisingly simple arrangement, with a column gearchange and front bench seats.

Flow-through ventilation was used for the first time in a full-size Holden. The instrument layout on the HQ featured a deep-set arrangement with round dials within squared-off surrounds. Ventilation controls were set into the panel, as were the washer/ wiper controls. The Premier model had an imitation woodgrained finish to this panel.
