Saigon market gutted By Benjamin Millar The community is rallying behind businesses and a charity devastated by the loss of the Little Saigon market. A blaze tore through the iconic market on Tuesday morning, sending palls of black smoke billowing across Footscray and Seddon. Fire crews were called to the marketplace about 6am after fire broke out in a refrigeration system above a cool room. Nearby residents were warned to close all doors, windows and vents as 75 firefighters battled for more than six hours before declaring the fire contained soon after noon. The blaze destroyed stock valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars, as well as thousands of school textbooks and Christmas presents that had been donated to the Les Twentyman Foundation. The Seddon Community Bank branch will set up a drop-off point for new donations to Les Twentyman’s charity at the Carols in the Yarraville Gardens event this Saturday. Vietnamese Community in Australia president Viv Nguyen said the market, which opened in 1992, had been an important meeting place for Melbourne’s Vietnamese Australian community. “For us, Footscray is a name that a lot of Vietnamese Australians hold dear,” she said. “I think it’s really important the community gets behind them.” Footscray Traders Association president and Littlefoot bar co-owner Stuart Lucca-Pope said the fire will have a flow-on effect throughout Footscray and beyond. “It will have a massive impact on traders in the lead-up to Christmas, especially for local traders who depend on it,” he said. “We source our goods from there. Thankfully, we have still got the Footscray Market, but a lot of produce is only available there at Little Saigon.” Mr Lucca-Pope said he wants to work with landlords in the area to determine whether any short-term arrangements can be made for trading to continue out of other premises. Loc Lam, co-owner of the Little Saigon building with Binh Le for more than 20 years, said he was devastated. “A terrible thing has happened,” he said. Mr Lam vowed to rebuild the market, which included 30 shops, as part of a Little Saigon redevelopment. Maribyrnong council approved plans in 2011 for a new $70 million mixed-use development of Little Saigon, which includes two towers of eight and 12 levels respectively, comprising 260 apartments, above a ground-level market.

Childcare approval a ‘system failure’: critics A decision to allow a childcare centre to be built at one of the city’s most polluted intersections signals a planning system failure, critics say. Star Weekly last week revealed the state’s planning tribunal had approved plans for a 170-place childcare centre on the site of a petrol station at the corner of Williamstown Road and Francis Street in Yarraville. The applicant, Southern Capital Corporation, appealed to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) after Maribyrnong council rejected its plan for a 206-place centre on the site. Maribyrnong Truck Action Group secretary

Martin Wurt said it was “madness” to allow a childcare centre to be built at an intersection passed by more than 8000 trucks per day. “We have some grave concerns about this; young people are the most susceptible to health issues associated with air pollution, and we could not think of a worse place to have a childcare centre.” Western suburbs Greens MP Colleen Hartland said she will take the issue up as a matter of urgency with planning minister Richard Wynne. “This is one of the worst truck streets in the state – this site is simply not suitable for use

will be required to ensure it is suitable for its new intended use. Williamstown MP Wade Noonan said VCAT has put binding conditions in place so the future centre will be safe to use, but he is happy to hear from anyone who holds concerns. “This case may be a sign that the council needs to check their local planning scheme is up to date.” Maribyrnong mayor Catherine Cumming said VCAT had made its decision. “The location leaves a bit to be desired.”

as a childcare centre,” she said. “The EPA is completely useless on this stuff, it’s not good enough.” Environment Protection Authority chief executive Nial Finegan said the siting of sensitive uses, such as childcare centres, near major roads is not covered by state environment protection policies. “There is also no planning framework within the council’s planning scheme to prevent or control the building of new childcare centre alongside arterial roads,” he said. Mr Finegan said the site’s current use as a petrol station means an environmental audit

Snakes on the streets A dog-walking group has moved out of Altona because of snakes, with one local vet warning that snake season is just warming up. Karen Hollis, founder of Facebook group Cavalier Meet-Up in Melbourne’s West, said members have decided Altona is too dangerous for their cavalier King Charles spaniels. She said the group’s favourite walk had been from Altona dog beach to Apex Park. “We’ve also tried Cherry Lake, but we can’t go down there this particular time of year because of the snake situation,” Ms Hollis said.

“I’m actually linked up with a Facebook group that reports snake sightings in the west … Snake Sightings in Melbourne’s West found snakes had come into Altona’s streets – Purnell Street and Galvin Street. “I thought, if they’re in Galvin Street and Purnell Street, I think we’ll move out of the Altona area. “There’s [been] a tiger snake at the sports club, and they’ve been at the Altona dog beach as well, so I thought, no, we’ll just move down to Cruickshank Park in Yarraville.” Dr Adam Campbell from Altona Vet Clinic said the large snake population, especially tiger

A Wyndham Vale woman has been charged with murder over the fatal stabbing of a man in Williamstown on Friday. Police and paramedics attended an apartment at the Old Royal Hotel building in Nelson Place about 9.50am, where they found 37-year-old resident Danny O’Brien on a bedroom floor with multiple stab wounds. He was treated by paramedics, but died at the scene. Kerry Jones, 38, handed herself in at the police station across the road a short time later. Police say the pair knew each other. Jones was charged with murder on Friday night and appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court for a brief hearing on Saturday morning. She did not apply for bail and was remanded to appear in court at a later date. A resident, who asked not to be named, said there were frequent problems at the address, which she said housed about 18 people. “Residents … have been trying to close this place down for years,” she said. Yarra Community Housing, which is responsible for the property, has been contacted for comment. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or submit a confidential report at crimestoppersvic.com.au

The music will never stop By Goya Dmytryshchak Williamstown will get the blues in a big way this Sunday. The final gig at the Way Out West (WOW) Roots Music Club – before the Williamstown RSL Club closes permanently on January 3 – is expected to be sold out as people come for last drinks. WOW president Rob Rowe, who is also the Williamstown RSL vice-president, said the music venue had quickly developed a reputation after forming 15 years ago. At its inception, Mr Rowe and his friend Terry Smith got 10 people to put in $50 each to book a band. After the first two or three gigs, musicians were phoning them to play. “We had the best musicians in Australia play here. We’ve also had seven or eight internationals who are Grammy awardwinning Blues Hall of Fame [musicians],â€? Mr Rowe said. “We’ve had people like Joe Louis Walker from the States; he played at George Bush’s inauguration. We had Charlie Musselwhite, who’s Blues Hall of Fame ‌ John Hammond, also Blues Hall of Fame.â€? WOW has about six gigs booked for next year as it seeks a new venue. The Williamstown Jazz Club is also searching for a new home. Mr Rowe said one thing was certain: WOW would be resurrected. “We’ll continue because the music’s the most important thing to us,â€? he said. “It’s interesting that one of the really successful RSLs is the Oakleigh RSL, which now call itself the Caravan Club. They’re doing music four or five days a week.â€? “We were told once – and I got angry about it – but someone from Anzac House said music isn’t important to RSLs. Well, we beg to differ. Music’s important to everyone.â€?

Cash to meet enrolment spike Mount St Joseph Girls’ College in Altona will receive $500,000 state government funding towards its $4 million upgrade, Education Minister James Merlino announced last week. The funding is part of a $120 million plan to upgrade Catholic and independent schools statewide. Mr Merlino said the funding would provide new and refurbished classrooms to meet increasing enrolment demand, with one in three Victorian students attending Catholic and independent schools. “We’re matching the sector dollar-for-dollar, building modern and fit-for-purpose classrooms and facilities to meet increasing enrolment demand.â€? Mount St Joseph’s principal Kate Dishon said the money would go towards a two-storey classroom block. “We’re excited to receive the $500,000 ‌ as part of the capital project we’re embarking on next year, which is development of our two-storey classroom block, so [we’ll have] an innovative classroom and huge refurbishment as part of a $4 million project.â€? The project also includes development of an administration block to create open space and innovative learning spaces. The school has 930 girls enrolled. “They deserve high-quality infrastructure and buildings, and that’s what this funding will achieve,â€? Altona MP Jill Hennessy said. Goya Dmytryshchak

Cafe soccer scores big Soccer with soul was played with gusto when an annual fundraising match for Williamstown’s Helping Hand Cafe was held on Friday, supporting some of the community’s most in need in the lead-up to Christmas. Now in its 11th year, the cafe is a weekly meals program at Williamstown Church of Christ open to anyone wanting a free two-course meal and a food parcel to take away. Founder Robert Adams, a former street kid, said people came for the company as well as the food. “It’s just about feeding the community, helping people in the flats, anyone on the street that needs a meal, or just wants to come down to chat to people if they’re lonely,” he said. “I’ve just done close to 22,000 meals.”

Mr Adams said that for the past eight years, Williamstown MP Wade Noonan had donated funds to the cafe from the annual soccer match. Mr Noonan said this year’s match pitted a team of “ageing amateurs” against the cream of Bayside College’s deep pool of soccer talent. “This is a chance to live out the Christmas message by helping our neediest neighbours whilst indulging our dreams of sporting prowess and glory on the pitch,” Mr Noonan said. Helping Hand Cafe will hold its annual Christmas party on Tuesday, December 20, from 11am. For a $4 donation, guests will enjoy a roast meal and take home a food parcel. Goya Dmytryshchak

Twice around the globe

Sting smokes Haddara link

By Goya Dmytryshchak The Williamstown maritime community has rallied around a Polish sailor who ran into trouble while circumnavigating the world in honour of his late grandmother. Gregor Wegrzyn, 64, has been invited to use the slipway at the Royal Yacht Club of Victoria (RYCV) until his 10.5-metre boat is ready to set sail for Auckland. His vessel is named Regina R in honour of his grandmother, and a flag bearing her likeness flies atop the mast. He set sail from Poland on June 6, 2015. Crossing the Indian Ocean, his vessel passed through 16 storms. The backstay failed and he had engine problems so he sailed into Fremantle. While there, Mr Wegrzyn was invited to stay in Melbourne where his boat is undergoing more repairs. Speaking through an interpreter and member of the RYCV, the veteran sailor said he planned to circle the globe twice. “I plan to circumnavigate the globe anticlockwise and then once I get back to Poland I plan to do a refit on the boat over a period of perhaps a couple of years. “Then I plan on doing a circumnavigation as close as possible from north to south around the globe. I want to tie a bow around the globe and that’s a present for my grandmother.” He said it was unknown when his quest would end. “A sailor doesn’t say when he’s going to finish because he can’t predict it. When he arrives, that’s when he’s there.” RYCV vice-commodore John Duffin said members had rallied to help, honouring a long-standing mariners’ tradition to help each other in times of need. “The club decided that we’d give him all the assistance we could to make the ongoing trip

A Maidstone businessman has avoided jail despite his role in smuggling 17 tonnes of tobacco into Melbourne. County Court judge Liz Gaynor sentenced Daniel Keefer, 65, to 18 months imprisonment, suspended on a two-year good behaviour bond after he pleaded guilty to one charge of importing tobacco with intent to defraud the Commonwealth. The court heard Keefer was in financial difficulties with his Maidstone business Flooring & Bathroom Bonanza. “As a result of this … you discussed the matter with another person … that person being unbeknownst to you, a member of the Haddara family, a family which, although not all its members can be said to be criminal, is well known to this court,” Judge Gaynor said. Keefer was offered money to use his premises and business to stash a container of goods concealing tobacco. A container said to contain 600 toilets, which arrived in Australia in August 2013, was found to have 17 tonnes of tobacco leaf hidden inside. Customs detected the tobacco, and the delivery continued under police surveillance. The court heard the container was delivered and Keefer made a forklift and employee available for the removal of the tobacco. “You have been extraordinarily foolish, and it has clearly cost you dearly,” Judge Gaynor told Keefer.

People power gets going

Call to stop drip-fed support

By Goya Dmytryshchak Altona P-9 College students are working hard to bring some Christmas cheer to young people who have no permanent roof over their heads, and are at risk of finding themselves homeless. The year 7 students have collaborated with Altona-based Latitude, which provides a range of supports to youth aged 15-25. Teacher Joshua Moore said the students had asked local businesses for donations of food and basic essentials to make up Christmas hampers for Latitude’s young clientele.

What a wonderful project, young people supporting young people

The yearly struggle to attract the federal funds that can help address homelessness must cease, a Footscray-based service tackling family violence has written. Women’s Health West is one of 209 organisations to sign an open letter last week, calling on prime minister Malcolm Turnbull to save key homelessness services from funding cuts by extending the federal government’s commitment to the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness (NPAH). “Cuts to the NPAH will withdraw support from some of the most vulnerable people in our community,” the letter stated. “We will see more people living on the streets of our cities and towns, more women facing family violence and sexual assault alone, fewer young people going to school, higher unemployment, more admissions to emergency departments, and the loss of lives that we can save.” The Turnbull government announced on Friday it would deliver $117.2 million in NPAH funding, but fell short of committing to longer-term support. Responding to the one-year funding announcement, Women’s Health West chief executive Robyn Gregory said family violence and related homelessness require a much longer term solution. “One year of funding does not enable us to plan and implement long term strategies for preventing family violence-related homelessness,” she said.

’’

- Rhonda Collins Year 7 students Sarah Brennan and Angelina Rotheram said they were motivated to help Latitude because the young people were of similar ages to them. “These kids aren’t much older than us,” Sarah said. “If we didn’t have what we have now, we could be like that in a few years … we’re so fortunate. “I think that Christmas is when you get presents and I think it just shows that someone cares about them, so it makes them just that little bit more happy.” Angelina said businesses had been very supportive. “Just about every business we’ve contacted has responded … or donated something or attempted to help us with vouchers,” she said. Latitude manager Rhonda Collins described the students’ actions as “magic”. ‘What a wonderful project, young people

supporting young people,” she said. “The students will develop a whole range of skills as they approach local businesses for donations and, most importantly, they are part of the discussion around the issue of youth homelessness. “It’s magic stuff. The hampers will be delivered to our young people, and they will certainly make a difference at what is a difficult time of year for our young people.” Students will be collecting items until

Monday, with collection boxes for community donations placed in the school’s office, and at Elle and Stuart Boutique at 89 Pier Street, Altona. Latitude, which is in Somers Parade, will also welcome donations for its food pantry. Suitable items include tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, pasta, rice, sauce, soup, canned food, cereal, spreads, long-life milk and juice, and toilet paper. Details: latitudedirections.org.au

Bulldogs still winning The rampaging Western Bulldogs have capped off their drought-breaking AFL premiership win with a record $3.64 million operating profit. The result is the third consecutive year of profit for the club, despite a $1.9 million “impairment charge” against the value of gaming machine entitlements associated with the failed Club Edgewater project. The operating profit rests on the back of a record $48.4 million take in total revenue, smashing last year’s previous record of $41.3 million and helping cut debt from $8.3 million to $1.9 million. The club set a new membership record of 40,081 members in a fairytale year in which it won the AFL and VFL premierships and the women’s Hampson-Hardeman Cup.

Chief executive Gary Kent said the club experienced record growth in game attendance and was the most watched sports team in Australia. The results mark a fitting farewell for club vice president and long serving director Susan Alberti. Maribyrnong mayor Catherine Cumming said a civic reception for the triumphant Bulldogs was a way of thanking the team for all it had done in lifting western suburb spirits. Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge told Star Weekly the sea of red, white and blue that took over the west through the club’s finals campaign had given the players a buzz that helped them on the field.

Masters stroke brings jobs back By Benjamin Millar More than 160 new jobs are expected to be created when the former Braybrook Masters store is redeveloped into a new shopping centre. Plans for the new centre, submitted to Maribyrnong council and estimated to cost $4 million, follow the spectacular crash of the home hardware chain. The first Masters store opened in Australia in 2011. The Braybrook store ceased trading last Sunday, with the loss of 130 full-time equivalent jobs.

‘‘

The development will enhance the range and - Impact report choice

’’

Plans by Home Consortium Company for a new supermarket, cafe and other retail stores are predicted to create 165 new jobs. An economic impact assessment for the project at 330 Ballarat Road revealed the proposed redevelopment will comprise a 4275 square metre supermarket, understood to

be Woolworths, along with 6842 square metres of retail and a 100 square metre cafe. The redevelopment is expected to take six months with the new centre’s opening scheduled for mid next year. “Braybrook Masters site … presents as a good opportunity for a new supermarket development, particularly in an area where many of the supermarkets are dated and relatively small,” the assessment found. The report also suggested the supermarket and retails stores could draw about $28.5 million in sales per year from surrounding

areas, particularly Sunshine, qualifying this as a “modest” and acceptable impact. “The impacts are broadly distributed, with no single centre or retailer anticipated to be heavily affected,” it stated. “The development will enhance the range and choice available to residents in the area by providing an additional full-line supermarket, as well as large-format retail stores, drawing residents from a broad area.” The assessment found many of the new jobs would be filled by local residents, a boon in an area of high unemployment.

Here’s to you, Mrs Robinson After being a mainstay of the early years of more than 1800 children, Janet Robinson is retiring after 30 years at Russell Court Kindergarten and Children’s Centre in Altona Meadows. Mrs Robinson said she has looked after four to five year olds in the same room all that time. “I will certainly miss the children,” Mrs Robinson said. “They keep you young. They’re just a delight every day to work with. I’ve just enjoyed it more and more as I’ve gone on. “It absolutely gets better and better all the time. I love it.” Now that word is out that she is leaving, Mrs Robinson said the children are “spoiling her rotten” while the staff even held a “Janet Week” that was full of surprises. Mrs Robinson, who has penned two children’s books, said her own children were aged five and six when she started. After three decades, she has cared for the

second generations of a number of families. “We’ve got students here now whose parents were students here too,” Mrs Robinson said. “So, I’ve got students coming back with their own children now. It’s lovely to see them.” Mrs Robinson, who lives in Altona, said she couldn’t go anywhere in the local area without seeing a former student. “It’s funny,” she said. “You wouldn’t think you’d remember the names, but it’s amazing – you see someone and it comes to you.” Goya Dmytryshchak

The 14-year-old student at Carranballac College in Point Cook has been invited to compete at the 2017 Track and Field Athletics Tour to Kelowna and Vancouver. Mackrell started in Little Athletics four years ago at Altona and now competes for Werribee Little Athletics and Western Athletics. The long-distance runner says her favourite events are the 1500 and 800 metres. She recently placed third in 1500 metres at the Victorian All Schools State Track and Field Championships, earning a place to compete at the Australian Junior Track and

Field Championships in Sydney next March. “Competing in Sydney and Canada comes at a great cost to my parents, who are busy organising fundraising events and trying to come up with the funds for me to compete and for my dream of representing my country to come true,” she said. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me and it would be an honour to go and represent my country.” Mackrell has started a gofundme campaign seeking donations or sponsorship in a bid to raise $10,000.

Mountain bikes on track By Benjamin Millar The west’s first downhill mountain bike track is in the pipeline as part of a planned $4.5 million revamp of the underused Quarry Park in Footscray. Cycling enthusiasts have welcomed the inclusion of the track and a skills park in a master plan for the 7.2 hectare former tip site. A report on the master plan presented to last night’s Maribyrnong council meeting envisages a “dramatic, sculpted landscape”,

which will offer park users “spectacular views”. “An item which received very strong support through the consultation was the mountain bike track and skills park,” the report noted. “These elements have therefore been developed to have a stronger presence in the park, utilising the steep landform along the northern part of the site, while still keeping the area to the south open for a variety of leisure uses.” John Symons, who led the community campaign for the mountain bike element of the

plan, said he was pleased to see the draft had been updated to take on board the suggestion. “I would like to see a little more length to the track, but it’s heading in the right direction,” he said. At least $2 million of landfill remediation will be required before further works can be completed to reuse the site. The council has allocated $1 million in the 2016-17 budget towards the works, with later elements to be staged as funding becomes available.

From bookworm to college dux A lifelong love of science and mathematics has led to a Braybrook student becoming dux of his school with an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of 99.5. Caroline Chisholm Catholic College student Carl D’Souza, 17, of West Footscray, studied specialist maths, physics, maths methods, chemistry and English language this year after studying VCE biology in year 11. Carl, who also enjoys playing piano and training in karate, said he felt anxious but mostly excited in the lead-up to finding out his ATAR score on Monday. “I’ve been interested in maths and science since I was a kid. I used to go to the library on weekends and borrow non-fiction books in these subject areas.” Carl was one of 14 of the school’s year 12 VCE students to receive ATAR scores above 90. Benjamin Millar

Get in the swim this summer Newport’s Jason Diederich, a below-knee amputee and Australian Paralympic swimmer, is among those entered for Victoria’s peak open-water swimming event at Williamstown on Saturday. Williamstown Swimming and Life Saving Club and Swimming Victoria are hosting the second state Open Water Championships and the Williamstown Open Water (WOW) Challenge. Diederich said he will attempt to double his distance this year. “One of the other guys I swim with and I have decided to push ourselves and stretch ourselves, and do the 10 kilometre,” he said. “I’ve swum all my life – I’ve done a lot of pool competitions plus swum at the Paralympics a couple of times, but I do love the open water swimming. “There’s many different distances people can do, from the shorter events to the longer events, so it’s a great chance when there are so many people around to look after things and keep everyone safe, to give it a try and go in the open water. “Plus it’s a real festival atmosphere … it’s a great opportunity to start the summer on a good note.” In a Victorian first, this year’s WOW Challenge has a multiclass swimmer category for people with a disability. And more than 15 swimmers will vie for the WOW Challenge Optus Junior Dolphins 750-metre ‘chase the champs’ challenge. Details: wowchallenge.com.au Goya Dmytryshchak

MY PLACE Creating meaningful jobs and helping save the environment are all in a day’s work for Green Collect co-founder and proud Footscray local Sally Quinn. She speaks with Benjamin Millar.

What do you love most about living and working here? What would you change? I love that Footscray has a lived-in feel. Unlike a lot of suburbs, it’s full of people walking, riding, turning up and sharing life. If I could change anything, I would want all people to have access to the many opportunities of the west, from housing to employment to art, and the deep sense of belonging I feel. That’s part of our passion and aim in bringing Green Collect to Footscray. In our workplaces, all people are valued and given the opportunity to be part of working together for a more sustainable planet. Do you have a favourite place to spend time? I love walking down the street and into the heart of Footscray. There’s always some little surprise to come across or person to meet that makes me smile. I’m hoping the mall redevelopment creates a beautiful and welcoming place where people from all ages and walks of life can be together, hang out and enjoy the vibe. What is Green Collect and how did it start? After working with communities who were excluded from work, due to barriers such as homelessness and refugee experiences, I

wanted to create a workplace that prioritised and valued these communities, and the skills and passion that all people have. At the same time, Darren and I kept seeing skips in the city full of good and usable resources, and we put together the idea to create a resource recovery enterprise that prioritised employment and training for people experiencing disadvantage. We were interested in social enterprise and received government, corporate and community support to start Green Collect just over 10 years ago. What are its most rewarding aspects? It feels pretty good when we occasionally step back and see the tonnes and tonnes of resources that have been saved from landfill because of Green Collect’s efforts. We’re proud of the solutions we find for hard to recycle materials like the 55,000 binder folders we collect from offices each year. Our upcycled notebook range is a great example of what can be done with products that have been thrown away. What are some of the most unusual things that have turned up in your collections? We get pots and pans, some still with last night’s dinner … entire contents from corporate offices complete with workplace awards and plaques of recognition. The massive amount of unused and perfect stationery we collect is unbelievable – but reflects the way we over-consume.

(Damjan Janevski)

What is your connection with Footscray? Within a week of discovering Footscray, my partner, Darren, and I bought a house here – it was love at first sight. That was 20 years and four kids ago, and we still have that same feeling. As soon as we could, we created our work to also revolve around Footscray, and we love that so many parts of our life intersect in this amazing place.

FOOD REVIEW STARWEEKLY.COM.AU

CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir finds there’s room for one more cafe … Like Lot 10 Eatery, Dumbo is a relatively new arrival in the WeFo neighbourhood. They join West 48, Pod @ PID, Brother Nancy and Jellybread. This is some fairly intense cafe action. But saturation point? Not yet, it would seem. Dumbo appears to have found its niche rather quickly. The old building next to Footscray West Primary School has been extensively revamped, with much of the limited space taken up by the kitchen and serving area. In the main customer space, there’s a big communal table and a handful of smaller types. The menu has plenty of takes on the usual line-up to keep breakfast fans happy, while the baked Moroccan lamb clay pot ($16) strikes us as something that could also be a handy lunch. The lunch list itself has just three dishes – and CTS tries the lot. Pearl couscous salad with herbs, tomatoes, Lebanese cucumber, chilli herb oil, blackened chicken and green pepper relish ($18) is super. The chicken, moist and juicy, smacks of cumin and more in the seasoning department. Best of all is the fabulous, tangy green pepper relish. No mere garnish this, it is provided in sufficient quantity to really give the dish a hearty flavour bomb. The quinoa zucchini salad with sun-dried tomatoes, dill, goats cheese, shallots, beetroot and smoked trout ($19) is lovely, yet doesn’t quite have the same impact or striking delineation of flavours. It’s undeniably constructed from top-notch

ingredients all round, but is a little bland for my tastes. Or maybe it’s this simple: Memo to self – never order anything that involves quinoa. Eating at cafes such as Dumbo often means CTS has to recalibrate expectations, taking on board that meals such as these salads are not the massive mounds of biryani or pho we habitually consume … and that $18 or $19 is the going rate for such fare. Dumbo’s brioche burger ($19) with chorizo patty, bacon, Swiss cheese, jalapeno cream cheese and caramelised onion, with thin chips and harissa mayo on the side, however, does seem to fall short in value for money terms. The verdict from my companion Tony is that the quality is there, but the quantity is less than generous. Then again, maybe comparing a cafe burger with those from ritzy burger joints is unfair. We have been interested to see what precisely ‘chorizo patty’ meant. Would it be a patty all of re-formed, smoked, porky sausage meat? Or would it be a beef patty with some chorizo meat in it. As far as we can tell, it’s the latter. My cafe latte ($3.80) is outstanding.

A VERY BAILEYS CHRISTMAS Like roast pork and apple sauce, some things just go together. For me, Christmas is synonymous with Baileys, whether it be a tumbler of my favourite liqueur over ice or a piece of Baileys fudge with a coffee on Christmas Eve. Clearly, I’m not the only person who feels this way, given the trouble I had getting my hands on a carton of Baileys ready-made custard for our Christmas Day spread last year. Baileys is also the key ingredient for this smooth, velvety mousse that’s strictly for grown ups, and is a cool, creamy alternative to your Aunty Thel’s steamed pudding on a hot Christmas Day. I have made this mousse several times and it’s very decadent. Of course, you can leave out the Baileys if you’re serving it to kids, but keep in mind it’s the Baileys that takes this dessert to the next level.

ROSS STEVENSON HOST OF 3AW BREAKFAST AND ‘A MOVEABLE FEAST’ FB: How would you rate your cooking skills? RS: Sadly, one out of 10 … and declining. FB: What is your signature dish? RS: Beef stroganoff from the Presbyterian Women’s Missionary Union Cookbook Cookbook, first printed in 1904. FB: If you could only have one more meal, what would it be? RS: The pork belly from Lee Ho Fook, scallop in the same shell from the Flower Drum, seafood spaghettini from Centonove. As always, if you have any recipes, tips or other info you’d like to share, email me at sarah@ howdypartnersmedia.com.au

FB: What is your favourite food TV show and who is your favourite TV food person? RS: Rick Stein. Such a delightful dag. FB: What is your favourite food? RS: Greek natural yoghurt and d’Affinois cheese.

This recipe makes enough for six people. You can serve it in individual glasses, but I tend to whack it all in one bowl and scoop it out to serve. Jazz it up with festive fruits and cream or – heaven forbid – a glug or three of Baileys custard!

BAILEYS CHOCOLATE MOUSSE 3 eggs 75g caster sugar 350ml thickened cream 350g dark chocolate, melted 100ml Baileys Irish Cream

Whisk the eggs and sugar together in a heatproof bowl, then place the bowl over a pan of simmering water. Keep whisking until the mixture thickens a bit. In another bowl, whisk the cream until it forms soft peaks, then stir through the Baileys. Carefully stir the egg mixture through the melted chocolate. Fold through the whipped cream mixture, pour into glasses or a bowl and chill in the fridge until set. This is my last column for 2016. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas, filled with food. Let your hair down, say yes to the crackling (you know you love it) and stay safe over the festive season.

FB: What is your favourite drink? RS: Red wine of any type. FB: Which five people would you most like to invite to dinner? RS: Barack Obama, Winston Churchill, George Clooney, Francesca Cumani and Phar Lap. FB: Do you have a kitchen tip for us? As always, if you have any RS: Get your children to clean up after dinner every recipes, tips or other evening.

Pull up a pew on the glass-framed balcony and gaze out to the bay, or head back indoors through bifold doors to the spacious living domain with gas log fire. A tucked-away, all-white kitchen has mottled stone benches and all the mod-cons, and there’s a powder room servicing this second level. Three ground-level bedrooms (with wardrobes) share a lavish bathroom (with European laundry next door) – and one opens to a courtyard. The top floor has the main bedroom under a vaulted ceiling; mirrored built-in wardrobes, and an extravagant en suite with dual basins and a spa accompany this fab room and there’s access to a private balcony with breathtaking views. Split-system, intercom, security system and basement parking for two cars are other property perks.

Stroll two minutes down the road to get a coffee or take a five-minute bike ride to the train station … that’s how good the locale is for this spanking-new residence on about 355 square metres. It has three spacious, grey-carpeted bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, the main also with a sleek en suite with dual basins. The toilet is separate to the main bathroom, and an open study is tucked away near the front door. The light-filled living domain is anchored by pale oak floors and incorporates a modern grey-and-white kitchen with island bench, abundant storage and quality appliances. The laundry is separate. The backyard has lawn rimmed by garden beds, and there’s a remote-controlled double garage with internal access, plus driveway parking for one.

Just a stroll away from the hustle and bustle of the suburb’s main thoroughfare, Barkly Street, this residence benefits from a central Footscray location while offering bright and modern living. Constructed on two levels and with its commanding street frontage, the house presents an impressive facade. The townhouse is as practical as it is stylish; lots of consideration has gone into maximising the interior’s sunlight.

The end of the entry hall marks the beginning of open-plan family living, where the continuation of clean-cut lines defines the contemporary styling. The family-meals zone’s white-on-white colour palette gives the space an uncluttered sense of lightness and, when combined with conveniently placed pendant lightfittings, has a soft-industrial feel.

The two-tone kitchen adds a splash of colour, giving the space a point of difference. Fitted with an island bench and lots of storage, it also has a gas cooktop and underbench oven. The monochrome-colour scheme continues upstairs, with plush charcoal carpet contrasting with the stark white walls. The two remaining bedrooms up here have walk-in wardrobes, with bedroom two’s wardrobe providing direct access to the main bathroom. Back downstairs, two sets of glass sliders

House features include inverter reverse cycle heating and understair storage. Eleanor Tabone

S

I

RON’S VERDICT Style with substance and sunny side up.

t had me at hello: a hint of vintage, a dash of Italia, dressed in chic champagne with racy black stripes down the bonnet. Inside, the Mini Convertible successfully mixes disco and class, flaunting an array of LED multi-coloured lights around the dash while harking back to the original Mini design in its circular instruments, vents and door handles. Motorbike-style dials behind the steering wheel move up and down as you adjust its height, and little levers operate the ignition and roof. Super-comfortable sports seats, sat-nav and six-speed auto are standard. Talking of the roof, stash that away in a flash and the youthful fun factor ramps up. The folded roof seriously impedes rear vision but the problem is mitigated by generous side mirrors. You can also have the roof half-up, leaving an expanded sunroof. A small car makes parking, turning and city driving so easy but the downside is a tight, awkward boot space and a back seat that’s almost inaccessible to adults.

B Y T H E NUM B E R S IT COSTS \

$45,400

IT HAS \

A 141-kilowatt turbo-charged petrol 2.0-litre four-cylinder with six-speed auto

WE GOT \

We got 9.9 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 6.4L/100km in the country. Official combined figure is 5.4.

C O N S E N S US \ MINI’S CORE VALUES OF NIPPY PERFORMANCE AND FEEL-GOOD MOTORING ARE ALIVE AND WELL

JACQUI’S VERDICT (iStock)

ome might think the Mini Convertible is a show pony for people who like to tan while they drive, but we’re here to tell you the buffed body of this little two-door drop-top hides BMW mechanicals that deliver sufficient performance to wipe the smirk from doubters. Our test car was the mid-range Cooper S, with its burbling transverse-mounted 141kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine driving the front wheels – a layout perfected by the original Mini 57 years ago. This one can dash to 100km/h in 7.1 seconds and go around corners like a go-kart. The latest two-door, four-seat Mini Convertible – in its third generation since BMW resurrected the iconic British brand in 2001 – is bigger than any generation before it, although the confined back seats are still just for short passengers on short trips. The boot is weekend-away sized. Folding in 18 seconds, the fabric roof sits up on the boot, pram style, hindering the rear view. This makes it difficult to see disappearing smirks behind you.

39 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY STAR WEEKLY \ DECEMBER 14, 2016


SPORT Seagulls brimming with outright joy Williamstown has rocketed to the top of the sub-district cricket standings with consecutive outright victories. The Seagulls stunned Endeavour Hills by an innings and 30 runs in a flawless east-west first XI performance at the Williamstown Cricket Ground on Saturday. Seagulls playing assistant coach Brent McMinn can’t recall being part of a side that has claimed back-to-back outright wins. “We’re flying at the moment,” McMinn said. “It’s great to get two 10-point victories before Christmas. Those sorts of wins don’t grow on trees. The playing group has got a lot of confidence now.” Williamstown’s game could not be faulted in any regard. The Seagulls left a trail of destruction in the Endeavour Hills batting card, bowling the visitors out twice and cheaply – for 128 and 91. With the bat, they only needed 40 overs to

amass an outright winning score of 3-249 declared, superbly driven by McMinn (115) and captain Dale McDonald (86), who combined for a 204-run second-wicket partnership. The speedy Seagulls scored at better than a run a ball to claim first-innings points before stumps on day one. “Our main focus was getting the six points straight up,” McMinn said. “We wanted to get it done and dusted on week one because you never know with the weather and what happens next week.” Williamstown would not have obtained maximum points in the match without the influence of left-arm orthodox spinner Pat O’Malley, who took 11 wickets for the match, including 7-32 on the second day to leave Endeavour Hills shell-shocked. “What a performance that was,” McMinn said. “You can’t get much better than that. A lot of his wickets were either lbw or bowled.

“Some would turn and some wouldn’t … when that happens, it’s very difficult to face spin.” Williamstown has gone from hunter to hunted in a short space of time. How will the Seagulls handle being the top dogs when they visit Mount Waverley in one-day game on Saturday, their last before the mid-season break? Meanwhile, Yarraville’s resurgence continued with a 79-run win over Box Hill at the Box Hill City Oval. Left-arm spinner Askshat Buch was the match-winner for the Eagles with 6-28 off 20 overs. Wicketkeeper Mali Pereira had five dismissals, including three catches and two stumpings. Altona lost for a second game running, bowled out for 110 in its pursuit of Bayswater’s 194. Lance Jenkinson

IN THE DOGHOUSE ■ Werribee

Park Golf Club bestowed the honour of life membership on Wayne Byrne last Saturday night at the club’s 40th anniversary dinner celebrations. Wayne – who has been a member for more than 35 years – is also the longest serving president of the club, having held that post for nine years. Now retired and enjoying his thrice-weekly games at the club, Wayne is a very deserving recipient of the honour. He joins Artie Bugg, Mick Russell, Ken Edsall, Greg Jackson, Connie Kennedy, Alan Thompson, Alan Herricot and Ian Bryant in a very exclusive club.

■ Champion

trainer Darren Weir made it back-to-back Werribee Cups when his horse High Church took out the $100,000 race last Sunday. Weir won the cup last year with Tall Ships and it was a pretty safe bet that one of his four runners would salute the judges. While the cup does not have the clout of previous years when Makybe Diva won it, it is still a much sought after trophy. The Werribee track looked great on television and a good crowd attended. The club will host its next meeting on Friday, January 27.

■ The

Western Bulldogs faithful will head to Etihad Stadium this week for the annual Whitten Social Club Members Christmas party which is completely sold out. There is bound to be a very big crowd on hand at Whitten Oval this Saturday for the open training day as fans just can’t get enough of their premiership heroes. At the Inside the Kennel show last week new recruits Travis Cloke, Tim English and Patrick Lipinski were unveiled to the supporters. Cloke is getting married on New Year’s Eve, English is heading home to Western Australia to help his family pack up their farm and relocate to Perth, while Lipinski will be home in Eltham with his family. Lipinski revealed that during the Bulldogs home visit pre-draft, his mother brought out his Bulldogs membership card to show the recruiters that he was a lifelong follower of the red, white and blue. A moment when he was more red, than the other colours.

■ Interesting

Bulldogs fail to finish job By Lance Jenkinson Yarraville-Footscray is bogged down in bottom-half mediocrity because of its inability to win close games in the Bowls Victoria premier division. The Bulldogs have a positive score difference, but a negative win-loss record, because of their trend of losing the tight games. They have lost three games by four shots or less, including a heartbreaking one-shot loss to cross-town rivals Altona away at Civic Parade on Saturday. “We’ve only had the one bad day this

season against Essendon, when they got us at Essendon,” Bulldogs’ skip Wayne Roberts said. “With the other losses, we’ve been in positions to win and just haven’t been able to get over the line. “This was another game we could’ve won, or should’ve won, and we find ourselves down the bottom end of the ladder when we could’ve been at the top.” It was all on the line late in the western derby for Altona and Yarraville-Footscray. In a close competition, with the top eight sides separated by only two wins, a 10-point swing either way would have massive consequences.

Yarraville-Footscray went to the last end three shots down, but Chris Ball could only pick up two, and Altona held on to keep their spot in the top four. For Yarraville-Footscray, this makes Saturday’s trip to Clayton a must-win game, otherwise it will be leaving itself too much work to do in the new year. “It’s probably season-on-the-line,” Roberts said. “If we don’t win that, it will be getting a bit too hard to make up.” Altona will host MCC in a Christmas cracker back at Civic Parade on Saturday.

Bulldogs’ tenacity lands a third state water polo title Footscray’s dominance continues in Water Polo Victoria’s men’s state league 1. The Bulldogs made it three state championship titles in five seasons when they overcame the highly-fancied Melbourne Collegians Falcons, 14-10, in the grand final at Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre earlier this month. Long-time Bulldogs’ coach Peter Smith is lapping up success, knowing all too well how tough it can be to climb to the summit. “We had a tough period through the late ’80s and early ’90s, when we played in about five or six grand finals in a row without getting the chocolates,” Smith recalled. “This particular group now has been very successful.” Smith, a five-time Footscray premiership coach, rated this team ‘the pick of the bunch’. He said the Bulldogs faced many obstacles this season, but never wavered from their focus. “To win this one, which wasn’t to be expected – we’d been up and down with injuries and suspensions during the year – but we finally got a full team and showed our true colours when

it came down to it, so I was ecstatic,” Smith said. “It’s probably the best win from my point of view that I’ve had, and I’ve been coaching Footscray on and off since the 1980s.” Footscray was the underdog throughout the finals series. It was hammered by 17 goals in week one of finals by Melbourne Collegians. The Falcons were red-hot favourites after going through the regular season undefeated, holding an astronomical goal difference of plus-202. They re-grouped from the week one loss to soundly beat Monash University 22-9 in the preliminary final. It was the pick-me-up the Bulldogs needed leading into a grand final. “They played really well, the boys in the prelim,” Smith said. “They got a lot of confidence out of that game because Monash have been very competitive all year. “To beat them the way we did … we sort of took the foot off the pedal in the last quarter to have a bit of a rest, with a two-day break between the grand final and the prelim.”

Footscray was in control of the grand final from the outset, leading 4-1 at quarter-time. The only time the Bulldogs felt any scoreboard pressure came in the third quarter, when Melbourne Collegians closed to within a goal, but they kept composure and completed their back-to-back premiership mission. Goalkeeper Milan Stojlovic had a game to savour for Footscray, while Daniel Egan, Jamie

Oglvie-Lee and Cameron Gilmor were among the best. The Bulldogs were captained by Ben Smith, a former Victorian Seals state player. If they can keep their squad together, the Bulldogs should remain in the premiership mix for some time yet. “We’ve got a really good mix of some experienced senior players as well as some good 19 and 20 year old players,” Peter Smith said. “Three of them have played international water polo at junior Australian level for their country. “They’re used to playing against big guys in eastern Europe and so forth, which I think stood us in good stead with that strong youth presence plus the experience of our senior guys.” Meanwhile, Footscray also took out the women’s state league 1 title. The Bulldogs went into the grand final as underdogs against minor premiers NYP Dragons, but came away with a 7-5 win. Lance Jenkinson

Sports shorts Tennis

A star-studded Liston Tennis Club took out the 2016 women’s premier league title on Sunday. The Williamstown-based team exacted revenge on MCC Glen Iris Valley for last year’s result, with a comprehensive 3-8-53 to 0-1-22 win in the grand final re-match at the MCC Glen Iris Valley Tennis Club. Liston’s triumph was set up in the doubles, with dominant performances from the Jessica Moore-Arina Rodionova and Alison Bai-Masa Jovanovic pairings. Bai’s stunning two sets to love win over Jessica Brzozwska in the singles ensured Liston’s name went down in the history books. Liston’s team included three top-10 Australian players, including Bai, Moore and Rodionova.

Cricket

The opening day’s play between Footscray Edgewater and Ringwood was abandoned due to water on the pitch. It will be take two when the sides meet again for the second day’s play at Russell Lucas Oval on Saturday. In other Bulldogs’ news, promising youngster Jakob Tidyman has been selected to represent Vic Country’s under-19 team. On Sunday, the Bulldogs host the Melbourne Renegades’ family day and intra-club practice match at Merv Hughes Oval from 11am. Bill Fowler’s family had a banner made to celebrate his 300th match for Williamstown, which produced a thumping third XI win over Coburg. (Kerry Fowler)

Cricket in his bloodline By Lance Jenkinson Williamstown Cricket Club stalwart Bill Fowler has given new meaning to raising your bat for a 50. Fowler is about to be recognised by Cricket Victoria for his 50 years’ service to the game. The 58-year-old has played upwards of 800 matches when you include his days as a junior at Newport and his career peak with Footscray in the Premier Cricket. After bringing up the milestone in the third XI on Saturday, Fowler was proud to say 300 of those games had been for Williamstown. “It’s a great honour to have played that many games for such a great club,” he said. “It’s the third-oldest cricket club in Victoria and it’s great to have played so long for it.” Fowler was introduced to cricket at the age

of eight and has been hooked on the game ever since. Cricket was in the bloodlines with his father and grandfather both having played for Williamstown in their heyday. In his prime, Fowler was a strong batsman and left-arm off-spinner, just like his dad. In recent times, he has been relegated down the batting order, but his bowling figures still turn heads at Morris Street. Last summer, Fowler took an incredible 30 wickets at an average of 7.3. While he has played only two games this season, Fowler showed in his 300th that he still poses a threat to opposing batsmen, taking 2-15 off 15 tight overs. Fowler is thrilled to be able to play alongside the youngsters at Williamstown. The Williams Landing resident is no longer a

captain but is willing to share his experiences and point the young players in the right direction. “I used to captain the seconds, some six or seven years ago,” he said. “Now it’s just helping out the younger boys develop and showing them the right way to play the game. “It’s still great to be involved and playing. “I’ve played the game for 50 years and I still enjoy it.” Fowler’s nominated career highlights came as a Williamstown player. He cherishes the premiership/championship doubles the Seagulls achieved in the 2000-01 and 2006-07 seasons. “They’re the two highlights plus, of course, the friends we’ve made over the years,” the veteran said.

Cycling

Dom Dudkiewicz has continued his stand-out form, winning Footscray Cycling Club’s latest A-grade race at Altona. Dudkiewicz, last week’s Legend’s Race champion, battled with Morgan Smith and Mathew Robertson before emerging victorious. Other winners were Daniel Bucnall (B grade), Oskar Moore (C grade) and Paul Beasley (D grade).

Grid Iron

Western Crusaders re-elected Peter Steve as president for the 2017 Grid Iron Victoria season, while Matthew Ireland will be vice-president. The Crusaders were tremendous last season, reaching Vic Bowl XXXII before going down 16-12 to Monash Warriors.
