‘I can’t live like this’ By Stella Tzobanakis Maria Kariofillidis says the West Gate Tunnel project will be the death of her. The 76-year-old Greek pensioner lives in Hyde Street, Yarraville, opposite the fuel terminal. English is her second language. Last week she found out that after almost eight years of talks between the government and residents about possible acquisition and compensation, the state will not buy her home as part of the $5.5 billion tunnel project. Her daughter, Koula Papadopoulos, delivered the news as she translated the relevant section of a 10,000-page environmental effects statement for her. “I will die here if they do this,” Ms Kariofillidis said in Greek. “I won’t have a life here. They need to buy our homes. “I don’t know where I will go but I can’t live like this.” The West Gate Tunnel is a new tollway that will widen the West Gate Freeway to 12 lanes and also tunnel under Yarraville to link the West Gate to CityLink. It is due to open in 2022.

She said the consequences of staying for all of them would be devastating. “It is likely that if we are not compensated for the affects to our amenities, most of us will be forced to stay and suffer,” Ms Papadopoulos said. “Rental return is likely to be significantly affected, and our houses will be unsellable, therefore relocation is not an option.

“Some of us will be stuck in houses which have mortgages higher than their value and with growing families to worry about.” Greens MP Colleen Hartland said if homes were not compulsory acquired, the front yard of these homes would become a “truck superhighway”. Ms Hartland said she was in talks with government bodies about how these residents

Newly announced 24-hour truck bans along Francis Street will see the volume of vehicles drop by 5000 a day there, but will force an increase of vehicle traffic by a predicted 1600 on Hyde Street. The EES predicts 7600 trucks will drive past 11 Hyde Street homes – including that of Ms Kariofillidis – every day. Almost 6000 vehicles, including fuel tankers, already drive by the homes daily. Ms Kariofillidis said she had called Hyde Street her home for 44 years and, despite the already surrounding traffic problems, it was still her home. “It’s so noisy, the house shakes,” she said. “I block my ears, I feel dizzy sometimes from the fumes. I can’t really grow anything in my garden. “But all my life has been here. It’s like I was born here.” She is not alone. Her neighbours also want the government to purchase their homes and have banded together to lobby the state. Ms Kariofillidis’s daughter is a spokesperson for the lobby group, made up of 11 Hyde Street

Increasing car ownership, population growth and changing land use has heightened the demand for public parking. We need to have an approach that is consistent across the City and that is responsive to the needs of the community. It can ease congestion, improve the amenity for residents and ensure safety of drivers and pedestrians. We have drafted a Parking Management Policy that aims to provide fair, locally responsive and safe distribution of parking infrastructure throughout the City of Maribyrnong. We want this to be achieved by community engagement and parking management strategies that take into account the needs of everyone in our community. A Community Advisory Group will be formed comprised of residents and key business representatives from specific precincts across the municipality to advise Council on the development and implementation of the new draft policy.

A Workshop:

Talking With Your Child About Alcohol and Drugs The earlier you start talking about alcohol and other drugs with your children the higher the likelihood they will defer drinking to a later age. The Alcohol and Drug Foundation is holding a free workshop to help parents have ‘the other talk’. Parents are still an important and trusted source of information for young people and play a crucial role in children’s future decision making. Workshop details Monday 19 June 2017, 5.45–7.45pm (5.30pm arrival) Footscray Library 56 Paisley Street, Footscray, 3011 Refreshments will be provided Telephone: 03 9611 6100 Email: adf@adf.org.au Register via: theothertalkfootscray.eventbrite.com.au

We are calling for residents to participate in the Community Advisory Group and nominations close 5pm Friday 16 June.

Speaking about getting out and about, don’t let the onset of winter keep you indoors. We have events for all the family, these are listed on our website under the events section. This includes Jazz Out West activities happening over the next few days in various locations. We also regularly have events at the Bluestone Church Arts Space in Hyde Street, Footscray our next production there is Trash Goes Down the River: Intricacy, Mystery. And dark, dark comedy.

Green light for new shopping centre Folkestone has also entered a joint venture with property developer Wilmac for a $28 million business park next door with 76 office/warehouses, known as Millers Junction Business 2. This adds to its Millers Junction Business centre. Originally, a family centre had been planned with a discount department store, cinema, sports and aquatic centre, childcare centre, GPs and restaurants. However, this idea was scrapped to prevent competition with nearby businesses. Folkestone’s real estate head Ben Dodwell

said he was pleased to have entered a deal with BWP Trust, Australia’s biggest owner of Bunnings Warehouses, to buy the land. “This, together with Millers Junction Business 2, will deliver the final stage of the Millers Junction master plan and demonstrates our ability to use our balance sheet to secure and develop investment-grade real estate across multiple sectors,” he said. In 2014, Bunnings relocated 250 metres south in Millers Road and became the anchor store of stage one of Folkestone’s development. Goya Dmytryshchak

Property fund manager Folkestone has gained Hobsons Bay council’s support to build a Woolworths-anchored retail centre on the old Bunnings site at Altona North. Folkestone on Friday announced the $70 million development at 290-298 Millers Road, opposite its Millers Junction Home centre, which has an Aldi, Bunnings, Officeworks, Petstock, Repco, Autobarn and JB Hi-Fi Home store. Millers Junction Retail, to be completed in 2019, will have similar-style “large format stores”. It is yet to gain final approval from the state government.

Two “brave” nine-year-old girls bit and kicked a stranger who tried to abduct them from a residential street in Melbourne’s south-west earlier this month. Detective Mat Evans, from the Footscray Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation team, said the friends were playing at a park on the corner of Oxford and Newcastle streets in Newport on May 20, when a man pulled up on the wrong side of the road in a black car just after 1.40pm. He started talking to the girls before getting out of the car and grabbing one of them by her T-shirt and started dragging her towards his car. “The other girl ran up to the man and kicked him from behind and the girl he had hold of bit him on the finger,” Detective Senior Constable Evans said. The girls broke free and got on their scooter and bicycle and fled to one of their homes nearby, he said. A parent then rang police. Detective Senior Constable Evans said the girls were extremely brave. “The girls are fine. They’re very resilient, it’s more the parents in these situations who are often more emotional,” he said. Police said there were no similar crimes in the past that matched the description of the attacker. The man – Caucasian and aged in his 20s or 30s – had a distinctive long blond goatee beard down to his chest. “We appeal to people to have a look at the composite … and ring Crime Stoppers if they recognise him or believe they know someone who has these features and has access to a black car,” Detective Senior Constable Evans said. Anyone who witnessed the incident or with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report to www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.

But pets that aren’t registered or chipped, or whose chips have not been updated, may end up at the North Melbourne pound.

Lost pets from Hobsons Bay and the Macedon Ranges are the first to be posted online by the Lost Dogs Home under a new intiative aimed at reuniting more cats and dogs with their owners. The home’s general manager of animal welfare, Dr David Cunliffe, said Strays Online was about increasing pets’ chances of returning home.

“When anyone loses their pet …we’re aware that it can be extremely distressing,” he said. “We know that everyone would want to do everything they can to ensure that they get their pet back. It is definitely our aim to expand the service to include all our partner councils and I have agreement from probably about 80 per cent of them to be included mas we grow the service.” Dr Cunliffe said Hobsons Bay and Macedon Ranges councils directly reunited registered

Dr pleads for more security By Beau Donelly “This is just a ticking time bomb,” Dr Michael Wong told Fairfax Media on Thursday. “Nearly the same thing that happened to me three years ago has happened again. “What needs to happen before policy makers wake up? Do we need to wait for someone to die or be severely disabled?” Dr Wong’s comments come after Patrick Pritzwald-Stegmann was allegedly punched in the head last week in the Box Hill Hospital foyer following a verbal altercation with a man near the entrance. The cardiac and thoracic surgeon suffered life-threatening injuries and remains in intensive care at The Alfred hospital. A hospital spokeswoman on Monday said the father-of-two was still in a critical condition. Police have arrested a man in connection with the alleged one-punch attack. Dr Wong has been calling for increased security at public hospitals since his near-death experience in 2014, including separate entrances for medical staff, full-time security patrols in foyers, and restricted public access to wards. He said hospital staff continued to be confronted by violent, disturbed and drug-affected people on a daily basis, including being kicked, punched, bitten, spat at, headbutted and threatened with knives. Dr Wong said he was saddened and angered by last week’s attack, which highlighted the need for serious action on hospital security. “What happened to me and my colleague

are high-profile cases, but there are so many assaults being reported in the hospitals every day and nothing truly has been done to protect the staff,” he said. “There has been too much talk and too little action on safety in our hospitals.” Dr Wong said security guards at hospitals were called to “mop up the mess” when altercations occurred, but were needed to prevent violence in the first place.

‘‘

What needs to happen before policy makers wake - Michael Wong up?

He said his thoughts and prayers were with Dr Pritzwald-Stegmann and his family. “I dearly hope that he fully recovers,” Dr Wong said. “There are so many parallels to what happened to me. The location in a hospital entrance, the fact that we’re both surgeons and fathers of young families who were left fighting for life because of hospital violence.” Dr Wong was stabbed 14 times, suffering a punctured lung and wounds to his back, arms, hands, legs, chest, abdomen and head. He underwent 10 hours of emergency surgery as three surgeons worked to repair tendon and muscle damage, and remove part of his lung. His attacker was sentenced to 25 years of supervised treatment at a mental health hospital.

Calling all young heroes A 13-year-old Footscray boy’s quick-thinking may have saved a man from being hit by a train. Alexander Lloyd called triple-0 on Sunday January 29 about 4pm when he was riding on a train and saw a man sitting on a track at South Kensington railway station. The teenager told police during the emergency call he saw “a guy sitting on the tracks and holding something”. “He was definitely shaking,” he said. “I just thought I’d better report it.” Alexander, who is known to his friends and family as ‘Zander’, was one of 51 children who

received a Junior Triple Zero Hero award from the Emergency Services Telecommunications Authority this month. Emergency Services Minister James Merlino said the state’s junior triple zero heroes remained remarkably cool, calm and collected and are shining examples of how preparing children for an emergency can save lives. Police took the man away from the tracks and he was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Stella Tzobanakis

Sweet victory for chef

Safety plea on holiday driving

(Damjan Janevski)

By Goya Dmytryshchak West Footscray’s Santiago Cuyugan has been named Savour Patissier of the Year, beating some of the best pastry chefs in the world. The pastry chef and chocolatier at Bibelot in South Melbourne received the highest combined score across the four categories of desserts, tarts, entremets and eclairs in last month’s contest in Melbourne. His entremet, a mousse cake, was judged the best by a judging panel comprising internationally-renowned pastry chefs Christophe Michalak, Jordi Roca and Antonio Bachour and chocolatier Paul Kennedy. It was built with a caramel-sponge base, topped with a layer of caramelised puff pastry and then struzel, chocolate chunks, chopped hazelnuts and candied mandarin. “A lot of people will have a mousse and a jelly and a cream and everything’s very soft,” Mr Cuyugan said. “I just wanted something with a bit more crunch.” Meanwhile, his flower-shaped tart is sitting at No.1 in the yet-to-be decided People’s Choice award on Instagram. Cuyugan said the flower mould took two months to create and he planned to patent the design. “I want to sound humble, but it’s quite beautiful,” he said. His other entries in the competition were a French earl grey, grapefruit and hazelnut eclair and a fermented dessert containing rhubarb and kombucha jelly. His prize is $15,000 cash, training at Ravifruit studio in Hong Kong with world-renowned pastry chef Marike Van Beurden and a trip to a Ghana cocoa plantation courtesy of competition sponsor Callebaut.

Westgate Highway Patrol is calling on drivers to take extra care on the roads this weekend. Sergeant Marty Wallace said police would increase their presence on Wyndham, Hobsons Bay and Maribyrnong roads during the long weekend for the statewide Operation Regal. Police will focus on speeding, driver distraction, seatbelts, fatigue and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Sergeant Wallace said particular attention would be paid to the main arterial roads to deter speeding and distraction. Preliminary breath tests would be conducted across all three municipalities. He called on drivers to be aware of other traffic around them. “Queen’s Birthday is a time where the risk of collisions and injury is greatly increased,” he said. “Police will be working on the roads …our aim is to reduce the trauma on our roads to see that all drivers get to and from their destinations safely.” Last year, Wyndham drivers were charged with 152 offences over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend – the second highest-number of offences in Melbourne after Brimbank.

Hobsons Bay truck fears grow By Goya Dmytryshchak With up to 7000 more trucks a day predicted to use Millers Road by 2031 under the West Gate Tunnel project, Hobsons Bay council is gearing up its campaign to protect its roads. The traffic impact assessment in the Environmental Effects Statement (ESS) released last week predicts an increase of up to 14,800 trucks a day by 2031, compared to 4500 trucks a day now, at Altona North and Brooklyn. The increase will result from the introduction of a new truck toll on the freeway combined with a total truck ban on current truck routes to the port north of the freeway. Asked to respond to concerns about the projected truck increase in Hobsons Bay, Roads Minister Luke Donnellan said Millers Road was designed to carry large numbers of trucks and heavy volumes of traffic. “We’ve listened to the community every step of the way on this project, delivering the 24/7 truck bans that the inner west has been calling for to make residential streets safer and quieter,” he said. Hobsons Bay mayor Sandra Wilson said the council was concerned about the impact on Millers Road and surrounding arterials including Blackshaws Road, Hudsons Road, High Street, Mason Street and Kororoit Creek Road. “The truck bans in the City of Maribyrnong are a great result for that part of the inner west, but it is only a part of the solution and the flow-on impacts on Hobsons Bay from those bans and toll avoidance need to be taken into account,” she said. “We need to make sure that controls are put in place to protect our local roads. “We are calling on the state government to work with us over the next 12 months on a regional assessment study and action plan that would prevent trucks and even more traffic spilling into Hobsons Bay.”

According to the EES, a drive from the city to the Princes Freeway in the afternoon peak will be 20 minutes quicker via the tunnel than through Footscray Road and Geelong Road. The predictions are based on the year 2031, nine years after the tunnel is due to open.

Bargain sale for a cause By Goya Dmytryshchak Women from Uganda will be the beneficiaries of a giant garage sale being held in Williamstown to raise money for the Bwindi Community Program. One of the project’s founders, Tricia Salau said proceeds would go towards building a tourist shop showcasing products sewn by the local women using African fabrics. To date, the project – founded and supported by members of the Hobsons Bay community – has funded a sewing microbusiness with the Ugandan Ride 4 a Woman (R4W) co-operative. It has also helped develop a women’s refuge and a hostel, empowering women in the communities surrounding Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. Ms Salau, who recently returned from Uganda, said the garage sale would help fund a shop in the village. “When we first went there, all there was was an open-air community centre with a thatched roof and a dirt floor,” she said. “Now they have a house for the manager to live in, they’ve opened a homestay for tourists and a women’s refuge. “They have a dining room with a chef for when people stay there. “And the big thing that we did last year … was help them build free range chook enclosures so they could be self sufficient in eggs and also use the eggs in the dining room. The manure from the chickens is composted to put back on the vegie gardens.” The chickens were funded by Hobsons Bay residents who gave them names such as Doris Lay and Gregory Peck. The garage sale will be held on Saturday, June 17 from 9am at 8 Russell Place, Williamstown.

7-Eleven fined for fuel pollution By Goya Dmytryshchak 7-Eleven Stores Pty Ltd has been fined more than $7700 for failing to clean up fuel contamination in groundwater under its Newport store. The Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) learned of the fuel contamination at the 438 Melbourne Road site from a report to its pollution hotline. EPA metropolitan region manager Daniel Hunt said the chain had known of the pollution for two years. “An EPA investigation found what has been

analysed and appears to be weathered petrol, in groundwater at and in the immediate vicinity of the premises,” he said. “During the investigation in February 2017, it was disappointing to uncover that 7-Eleven had known about the hydrocarbon issue at the site since it received a report in 2015, yet had failed to undertake any form of clean up.” It is yet to be determined if the contamination has spread beyond the site. The EPA has issued a notice requiring underground fuel tanks and equipment be tested for leaks. The chain must also provide an approved

interim clean-up plan completed by an EPA-appointed environmental auditor. 7-Eleven spokesman Clayton Ford disputed that the company had failed to act for two years. “In 2015, 7-Eleven detected some levels of contamination but which did not warrant active remediation,” he said. “7-Eleven instituted monitoring at the site, and subsequent

testing in late 2016 revealed that the levels of hydrocarbons were rising. “We instructed our consultants to investigate further and to take appropriate remedial action, which is still in process. “7-Eleven is disappointed by the EPA’s pre-emptive statement before the proper processes have been fully worked through.” Mr Ford said it was open to 7-Eleven to contest the infringement. “We have already shared information with the EPA that shows the issue is not as clear-cut as it has alleged, and we are seeking further advice in relation to the matter,” he said.

South American style Residents of Melbourne’s west will be among the almost 100,000-strong crowd at the soccer blockbuster between Brazil and Argentina at the MCG on Friday. And for some like Yukiyoshi Kamimura of Kingsville, who was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the clash is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “It’s a dream come true,” Mr Kamimura said. “Despite having spent the first 21 years of my life in Brazil, I’ve never actually had the opportunity to see Brazil play live. “This will be the first time. It will be quite emotional for me. I can’t wait.” Mr Kamimura said although the match was a friendly, two giant South American rivals would be facing-off on June 9. “Despite being a friendly match, I don’t think either team wants to lose,” Mr Kamimura said.

“For Brazil, it’s just another opportunity to experiment with different players, but there’s a lot more at stake. “For Argentina, they’ll see this as an opportunity to create a good team cohesion and classify for the World Cup in Russia next year.” Stella Tzobanakis

Road Policing Enforcement Campaign Operation Regal Queens Birthday Holiday Weekend 2017 Operation Regal 2017 is a state-wide road policing operation which aims to increase driver awareness and journey planning, while reducing road trauma during the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, 9-12 June 2017. Victoria Police will implement a strategically co-ordinated and tactically focused approach to road policing targeting the five contributing factors to road trauma being speed, driver impairment, distraction, fatigue and seatbelts. This 4 day Road Policing Enforcement Campaign will run from Friday 9 June to Monday 12 June 2017. Westgate Highway Patrol Officer In charge Senior Sergeant Jason Templar said this operation will be conducted throughout all operational Police Regions and Police Service Areas during the four days, using all available personnel from local road policing units, general duties and other regional resources. Motorists are requested to stay within the speed limit, don’t drink alcohol or take drugs and drive, leave your mobile phone out of reach, wear your seatbelt and make sure you are well rested. Fatigue is one of the biggest killers on Victorian roads. Drivers are requested to plan their trip, be patient and ensure that you take at least a 15 minutes break at least every two hours and don’t drive if you are tired. Drivers planning to travel during this period can expect to see an increase in vehicles travelling on our major Freeways and Highways throughout the State. Road trauma isn’t just about the people who die – it’s about the enormous impact on the community, from the family members, to the emergency services workers who have to deal with these tragedies on a daily basis, to the police who have to deliver the devastating news to loved ones.

All of the community has a responsibility and a role to play in reducing road trauma. Remember, travel safety so that you arrive at your destination safely and enjoy your Queens Birthday Holiday weekend. RoadSafe Westgate Community Road Safety Council Chairman Mr Jim Giddings said it has been demonstrated time after time that speed is a contributing factor in most road crashes. Therefore stay within the speed limit and drive to suit the conditions you face. Speeding affects both the risk of a crash happening and the severity of injuries sustained when a crash does happen. Mr Giddings said the work of his group along with initiatives like the Operation Regal during the 2017 Oueens Birthday long weekend would hopefully reduce the number of serious road crashes on our roads. He asked the community to report speeding drivers to Crime stoppers number 1800 333 000 Holiday driving has its challenges and drivers should drive in the hours they are normally awake, take regular breaks to reduce fatigue and allow extra space between vehicles. Drivers need to adapt to the conditions of the road, the onus is always on the driver to suit the conditions they are facing, and that includes the quality of the road. If you plan to have a drink then plan not to drive, taking a big risk like drink and driving is just not worth endangering your live or other road users. Before embarking on any driving trips drivers should check their tyres, windscreen washers, brakes and lights.

DRIVING IS NOT A GAME! SPEED KILLS! Don’t make a Grave Mistake

Speed is the largest single factor in fatal road crashes on our roads. RoadSafe Westgate and your local council support reporting speeding drivers to Crime Stoppers.

Works shore up seawall By Goya Dmytryshchak Work has started at Altona beach to raise the seawall and create a platform leading down to the sand, to protect Altona and Seaholme residents from rising sea levels and storm flooding. In past years, homes along the Esplanade and beyond have flooded after the ocean breached the seawall. Hobsons Bay council says it is mitigating the risk of flooding by closing access gaps and building new access points for pedestrians at a height that meets 2070 floor levels and estimated 2100 sea-level rises. The seawall at Correa Street will be raised 60

centimetres. The CSIRO estimates there will be at least an 80 centimetre sea level rise by 2100. Infrastructure and city services director Bill Millard said work was under way on a pedestrian ramp at Correa Street, near Ransom Reserve. “The works will include a small raised platform with an accessible ramp and stairs leading to the beach,” he said. “The upgrade will bring the Correa Street beach access point in line with a height that will better protect the seawall from current and future high tides and storm surges.” Work on the Correa Street pedestrian ramp is expected to be completed within the next few months.

School art with heart Altona Primary School recently unveiled Aboriginal artwork created by pupils working with an indigenous artist. Twenty-six pupils from grade prep to 6 volunteered for the project, working with Aboriginal artist Jena Galvin, whose son attends the school. Ms Galvin discovered her Aboriginal roots four years ago. Her Aboriginal great-grandmother was born November 9, 1876, near Mannus in New South Wales. She said the children taking part in the school project had been very respectful and “gave it their all”. “I think they really enjoyed themselves,” she said. “They got a very good understanding when they realised how painstaking it is. They actually had a waiting list of kids wanting to

do it, and they did it after school in their own time.” Principal Kevin Enright said the children worked every Tuesday for 15 weeks to create six panels of artwork. He thanked Hobsons Bay council for supporting the project with a community grant. “The intent of the grant proposal was to introduce students to the methodology and technique of Aboriginal artwork and gain a deeper appreciation of the culture through art,” he said. The panels, depicting native species including a moth, pelican, frog, snake, lizard and seahorse, are on permanent display in the school playground. Goya Dmytryshchak

Yarraville’s Janice Simpson, author of Murder at Mt Martha, felt drawn to the 1953 unsolved murder of young Shirley Collins. Simpson, who will speak about ‘Australian noir’ at this month’s Williamstown Literary Festival, began researching Collins’ case for a non-fiction book before deciding on a fictional account attempting to explain the killer’s motivation and life. “Shirley was 14 years old and worked full-time in Coles Variety Store in Bourke Street prior to her murder,” Simpson said. “I visited this shop as a child, loving the fourth-floor cafeteria with its art deco trims and colours. “I also loved to ogle the preposterous desserts in tall glasses arranged in rows for customers

to slide onto their trays and take to the cashier. Shirley’s murder was brutal and violent. It was a front-page story for days and never really disappeared.” Simpson said her next aim was finding a publisher for her books featuring Brendan O’Leary and Ange Micelli, detectives whose cases take them to Ballarat, Glenlyon and beyond. Held on the weekend of June 17 and 18, the Willy Lit Fest, as it is affectionately known, will involve 50 events at the Williamstown town hall and Williamstown library.

Hands-on approach to good health By Ewen McRae If Footscray Hospital visitors notice a few more eye-catching sights around the grounds this year, it’s Braybrook students from Caroline Chisholm Catholic College they have to thank. Students undertaking the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning have been taking part in a beautification program at the hospital, the first project of its type at the hospital in its 60-year existence. College organiser Tony Prosia said the project was delivering many benefits for the

students and the hospital, giving the kids hands-on learning. “The students have been involved with designing, planning and liaising with their mentors at the hospital to make the spaces more friendly and beautiful,” Mr Prosia said. “Part of the VCAL program involves community service, so when the hospital contacted us it was a perfect fit. “We originally planned for them [students] to spend two hours there every second Friday … but they’re going above and beyond and spending longer there because they enjoy it.”

The 19 students’ efforts include updating the hospital’s garden area, emergency department, outside courtyard and the rooftop visitors space over the coming months. Hospital volunteers co-ordinator Karin Haufe-Stellini said it was an important step for the hospital in building a relationship with the students and the broader community. “Some students only have had negative experiences in hospital,” she said. “This is a way for them to feel positive and that they have helped others who are not well.”

Citizen’s arresting win A colossal wall mural created by a Yarraville artist has taken out a coveted local prize. Heesco has won the Street Art category of the inaugural Footscray Art Prize for his entry, Miss Citizen of the World. The giant artwork is on display on building D of the VU Nicholson campus on the corner of Albert and Pilgrim streets in Footscray. The 37-year-old celebrated street artist explains the mural is of a woman – Miss Citizen of the World – dressed in centuries old traditional Mongolian dress along with modern fashion accessories, holding a smart phone. Heesco, who was born and raised in Mongolia, said Miss Citizen stands tall and confident, embodying both old and new cultures of our ever-changing world. “This image is from an ongoing theme in my current body of work, Heesco said. “It could be interpreted in a few different ways, and I’d

want the viewers to decide what it means to them individually, rather than me dictating the meaning. “It’s a public artwork, so now it’s mine as much as it is everyone else’s in the community, so the viewers should be welcome to provide meanings too.” Heesco said he loved drawing and painting since he was a child. Since moving to Australia in 1999, he has created many massive murals including a portrait of the late prime minister Malcolm Fraser on the side wall of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Footscray. “I go with the flow and work with what comes up, and try and better myself along the way,” Heesco said. “I’m not sure I have an ultimate goal as such, but I’m inspired by good people.” Stella Tzobanakis

MY PLACE Jess Martin, 22, is urging young people to get behind the Newport Youth Film Festival. She speaks with Goya Dmytryshchak. What’s your connection to Hobsons Bay? I’ve lived in Hobsons Bay my whole life even though my parents split when I was five. What do you like about Newport? What I like about the Newport/Hobsons Bay area is it always goes through big cycles of old people moving out and then new young families moving in. It’s always evolving. (Damjan Janevski)

What would you change? Changing the culture of the train station and getting more young people to maybe go to the hub rather than just hanging at the train station late at night. If you had visitors to Newport, where would you take them? I think I’d actually take them to The Substation. I think it’s a really great building. When you go upstairs, you can look out one way and you see Williamstown and the beach, but if you look the other way it’s heading towards the city and seeing all the lights and the city. In Hall Street, on the corner of Tait Street, there’s a mural of all the fish. I was part of doing that when I was a kid, so I definitely would

show them that. And also Newport Lakes. I love Newport Lakes – I think it’s a very, very nice place.

even if people aren’t all chatting together. Also Birds of a Feather. I like the food – it’s not too expensive.

What’s your favourite cafe or eatery?

Tell me about the Newport Youth Film Festival on June 30.

I like going to Leroy’s Cafe – I’m quite a regular. It’s got a really nice atmosphere. There’s people there with prams and then there’s also people sitting at a table by themselves reading the paper. It’s got a really nice community feel,

About five years ago, I was chatting with my dad, who’s part of the folk festival. They were looking for a youth component, and quite a lot of my friends are into filmmaking

in their spare time. They were like, what about a film festival? It’s a good way of getting young people to be part of the folk festival and also to showcase their talents and interests. Some years we’ve had lots of different films, other years we’ve had only a few films, but each and every year I find that you do get surprised by the quality.

Winter is here and your local Harvey Norman store is ready to help you escape the chill with the low-down on some of its popular heating products. Store manager Simon Day says the homewares retailer makes sure it stocks heating options at every price-point so there will always be something to suit every customer. “We have everything from small fan heaters starting at $24 to European-made panel heaters and Rinnai gas space heaters,” Simon says. “Electric blankets are also a great option to keep warm this winter. We stock Sunbeam, Breville, and Goldair for the more price-conscious consumer.” Harvey Norman offers a full installation service for gas or wall heaters. “We have partnered with Octopuss Installations, so all you have to do is pop in and we can organise everything on the day,” Simon says. Here are some of Simon’s recommendations for heating options this season: 1. Dimplex 1500W oil column heater with timer and fan, $148 A reliable oil column heater to keep you warm and comfortable on cold winter nights. 2. Rinnai 1500W delay timer electric panel heater, price $269 Clever design features means this panel heater warms a room quickly. Its features include silent operation, modern design with controls integrated unobstrusively into the body of the heater, vertical design and perforation of vents to disperse heat into a room fast and evenly, and user friendly settings and operation.

Price: Contact agent

High-end detail and innovative choices set within a traditional facade create spaces custom made for a design-savvy family. With plenty of nods to the Scandinavians, fashion-forward black powder-coated steel, tapware and cabinetry compliment marble finishings. On-point details frame comfortable family-friendly spaces. On a practical level, the house was returned to studs and re-built from the ground up by a builder as his family home, so the quality in construction mirrors the quality of the fit-out. The facade provides a perfect first impression with a clean dove grey and

white exterior. Gorgeous shingle detail and the double gabled pitched roofing are set against a brick-paved driveway and deep square front porch with timber decking evoking a country feel. Timber hardwood flooring throughout, builders-white painted walls and 3.5-metre ceilings set an appealing scene. The main bedroom has hydronic heating, a walk-in wardrobe and en suite with double-length frameless shower, with beautiful finishes. Sash windows have all been restored. The formal living room has a gas

fireplace with grey matte marble surround. French doors lead to the front porch. Bedrooms two, three and four follow, all with hydronic heating and dove grey carpeting. Two have built-in wardrobes. The main bathroom has a marble-topped bespoke vanity with twin basins, geometric-style marble tiling, bath and heated towel rack. From there, the extension begins – and it’s this main living space where a wow-factor really comes to the fore. The kitchen’s soft-closing matt black cabinetry is set against a marble waterfall bench and a true butler’s pantry –

it’s over-sized (with, sink, loads of creative storage and big enough for two fridges and the microwave) and styled beautifully. A second gas fire warms a large living space with dining nook and stunning floor-to-ceiling black-framed glass walls opening to the entertainer’s deck, the lawned area bringing nature into view. The property has single garage and a carport with dual entry, leading through to a concreted area for multi-purpose use. Here, great expectations are met.

ELLY PARTNERS

Seaholme 2 Garden Grove Sensational in the 60’s, Great Scope Today! This bright, boldly designed family home hides nothing of the trials and tribulations that long term tenancy has produced. In fact, this residence is happy to reveal its readiness for renovation - or its option for development, STCA, - on an irresistible allotment between the beach and Seaholme station. Downstairs areas for entertaining, with outdoor access, are accompanied by four bedrooms, a central spa bathroom and a separate laundry/second bathroom, each original and illustrative of their era. Above, living and dining spaces opening to a substantial balcony lead to a casual meals zone and a kitchen where tangerine laminate adds to the sense of time warp style. It needs work, the garage and the north-facing garden provide further proof of this, but the rewards will be wonderful!

FOOD REVIEW

CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir finds an old favouriteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new format is smokinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BURN CITY TEST KITCHEN Address: 31A Venron Street, South Kingsville Phone: 9043 9554 (open days after noon) florets are too big and undercooked, for my taste anyway. Chicken and potato salad ($18) is good â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I like what I eat a lot, though I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Nat is as impressed. The smoked chook â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even the breast â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is moist and very good, while the seeded mustard-dressed potatoes are fine. Had we been left to our own, non-reviewing devices, we both wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ordered the beef short rib. This is, on the list from weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working, the sole, really heavyweight barbecue offering. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;12hr smoked beef ribâ&#x20AC;? is crusty, musty, salty and delicious, the meat tender and excellent. Accompanying, a bit unusually, are honey carrots. I love them, even though they, a bit like the earlier broccoli, are a tad too much on the al dente side. For whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it worth, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;in breadâ&#x20AC;? efforts we see going by look very worthy of exploration. As do the baked pasta and bangers and mash being enjoyed by the friendly locals at our table.

Burn City Smokers has been one of the hotter and more well-known names on the Melbourne barbecue scene for quite a while. But that has been based on activities of the festival and catering variety. Now Burn City has a bricks-and-mortar thing going. Open for a few weeks is the shop front of the Vernon Street kitchen theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been using for a year or so. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re told menus proper are on the way, but in the meantime a prominently displayed blackboard does menu service. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a full menu and the outfitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website warns the food line-up will be changing regularly. As well, the hours are limited â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Friday dinner, Saturday lunch and dinner, and Sunday lunch and late lunch. Despite all these provisos, the place seems to have made many friends. Nat and I see plenty of Uber bags and other takeaways going out the door, and the locals with whom we share the communal table at the front are enthusiastic. Do we share their enthusiasm? Yes. A side of fries ($7) is fine, though I wish theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been hotter. A salad of broccoli, almonds, pickled red onion, chilli and garlic ($7) is a great idea, but the sum is less than the parts. Largely this is because it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really come together as a cohesive whole and the broccoli

SPORT Magic win spells boost for promotion bid Altona East Phoenix is down in the cellar after a 1-0 loss to Westgate in a clash of the bottom two at Castley Reserve. The Phoenix will be desperately seeking a major turnaround against second-placed Geelong away on Saturday evening. Yarraville Glory is ruing one that got away after a 3-2 loss to Preston Lions at McIvor Reserve. All was fine and dandy for the Glory at half-time, with the side leading by two goals on the back of a Keith Burch double. But a nightmare soon eventuated for the Glory though as Preston star Robert Stambolziev fired in a hat-trick late in the second half. All of Stambolziev’s three goals came within 23 minutes, including the winner in second-half stoppage time. The Glory, sitting two points above the relegation zone, has a crucial encounter with

mid-table Western Suburbs at Ralph Reserve on Saturday. Altona City has tumbled to third in men’s state league 2 after a 3-2 loss to Hume United at Kim Reserve. Ayodeji Omoboye scored both of City’s goals to make it six in 10 games. Williamstown ceded ground to ladder-leaders Brimbank Stallions in men’s state league 3 after a 1-1 draw with Melbourne University. In women’s state league 1, Maribyrnong Swifts were victorious 2-0 over Maidstone United in the local derby at Johnson Reserve. Alana Dargham and captain Aliantha Vandermey scored for the Swifts. Yarraville Glory enjoyed a 3-1 win over Yarra Jets, Sarah Lovett scoring a double. Lance Jenkinson

Vikings find their pace By Lance Jenkinson Altona Vikings coach Saade Ghazi has declared his side “back in the hunt” after a gallant nine-point win over the in-form Sunshine Kangaroos in the Western Region Football League division 1 at Kinder Smith Reserve on Saturday. Ghazi was speaking from a win-loss perspective, after his side squared the ledger at 4-4, more so than a performance standpoint, because he never once considered his side out of the finals race with the way they were playing for the most part in games this season. “We’ve lost four games by 22 points in total and one of those games didn’t even finish [due to poor weather], so we’re around the mark,” Ghazi said. “Obviously it was the win that we had to have. “It puts us into fifth position and we’re getting some momentum now.” Altona desperately needed the four premiership points, no matter which way they were achieved. The fact it came in the pressure cooker of a blockbuster game against Sunshine gives the Vikings even more validation that what they are doing is right. Ghazi stopped short of saying it was the Vikings best win under him – he steered them to two finals victories last season and an upset of four-peat premiers Deer Park – but he was not hiding his delight. “I’m extremely proud of our football club today,” he said. “I was proud of our players, they were outstanding, they were tough and showed enough quality.” Altona was deserving of its victory. Sunshine coach Barney Hallinan conceded the Vikings, led by ruckman Mark Paget and onballer Steve Kennedy, won the midfield battle. The Vikings were also in command across half-back, with Jayden Post and Joel Magnabosco producing outstanding performances. They were also one man down for most of the day after star midfielder Jordan Robbins injured his ankle. “To win without him for three quarters was a pretty good effort,” Ghazi said. Even though Altona went into three-quarter time with a 16-point advantage, Ghazi knew Sunshine was not going to make it easy for his side in the last quarter. The Kangaroos actually hit the front entering time-on, but two late goals ensured the Vikings would win a close one. “We couldn’t get our hands on it for the first 15 minutes of the last quarter and you’ve got to give credit to Sunshine, they’re on top for a reason,” Ghazi said. 36 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY STAR WEEKLY \ JUNE 7, 2017

IN THE DOGHOUSE ■ Maddi

Puli is an emerging basketball star, her selection last week in the Australian under-17 team to participate in the Oceania Championships is a great boost and indicator of her future in the game. The Werribee teenager has progressed well through the basketball ranks and looks destined for the big time. Maddi’s parents, Judy and James (a former Werribee footballer who played more than 100 VFL games and achieved state honours), are suitably proud of their daughter’s achievements. Maddi heads off next month for the tournament in Guam. Airport farewells may become a regular thing if a move to the US college system comes about.

■ The

Sunshine Kangaroos Football Club has always been one where the family tag has sat very comfortably. That was never more apparent than last Saturday. As Brad Connor was rehydrating after his record-breaking 428th game for the club, he watched on as the Kangaroos named the new electronic scoreboard in honour of his late grandmother, Marj Laffin, a tireless worker for the club over many decades. The Kangaroos dropped from the top of the ladder with the loss to Altona, but are certainly one of the real chances to challenge for the WRFL division 1 flag.

■ Parkside

Football Club will celebrate its 120-year anniversary celebrations in fine style with a ball on Saturday, July 15, at the Melbourne Pavilion, Racecourse Road, Kensington. The Magpies have packed a lot into their 120 years and as the oldest club in the WRFL have seen the highs and lows. The 2014 division 2 premiership was a victory that turned sour. Rather than heading into division 1, the club was on the verge of shutting up shop completely. Back from the brink, it entered the division 3 competition, which it is favourite to win this year. Ball details: parkside120@outlook. com.au

■I

received some feedback regarding my comments on the changing face of suburban cricket as a new geographic zone competition is proposed by Cricket Victoria. My point was that clubs have to make decisions based on what is best for the majority of their members and participants – not some old boys’ club tradition. Club officers are only the caretakers for the future. The clubs are not their personal fiefdoms. That kind of thinking has been the downfall of many clubs. Kevin Hillier

“It was just a great reward for the footy club.” Meanwhile, Spotswood had a resounding 88-point win over Werribee Districts at Soldiers Reserve, led by six goals from Charles Bettiol and a best-on-ground from Tom Langlands. In division 2, premiership favourite North Footscray had a thumping 71-point win over Newport Power on a day when Jason Butty (seven goals) and Tyren Montebruno (six)

combined for 13 goals, while Yarraville-Seddon held off Manor Lakes by 28 points and West Footscray fell short by 38 against Albanvale. In division 3, Parkside kicked 23 second half goals to run out 159-point winners over Laverton, with Jason Cloke (seven), Jack Collard (six) and Brayden Maynard (five) sharing in 18 goals, while the Wyndham Suns gave Braybrook a 116-point shellacking.

Altona Magic steadied the ship with a 2-0 win over Western Suburbs in the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 1 soccer at Paisley Park on Saturday night. The Magic’s promotion push was jolted with a loss and a draw in the past fortnight, but the side was back to its best in picking up its first win since mid-May. Both of the Magic’s goals came in the first half, through Jon McShane and Joseph Franjic. McShane has scored five goals in 10 league appearances this season, while Franjic found the back of the net for the first time this campaign. Altona’s lead at the top of the ladder has stretched back out to five points ahead of a trip to mid-table Essendon Royals this Saturday. While one Altona side is on top of the pile, another has sunk to rock bottom.

SPORT

Some good out of wasted opportunities Dissecting a loss north of 10 goals is the unenviable task facing Western Jets coach Torin Baker this week. One aspect of the Jets’ 63-point loss to Oakleigh Chargers at Warrawee Park on Saturday that will provide Baker with a smile was the performance of bottom-age defender Stefan Radovanovic. Radovanovic was earmarked as a player to watch for the Jets since the under-16s, but the Keilor junior has had an interrupted 12 months. The 17-year-old was nursed through the second half of last season with injury and missed all the pre-season games this year. But Radovanovic has played six games straight for the Jets this season, including a best-on-team display against the Chargers. “We’re absolutely rapt with him,” Baker said. “He’s one that we’ve known about for a while, but he’s just had some durability issues and hadn’t had a decent run at it.

“He’s played the last six games in a row and he’s been in our best six players in nearly all of the games. We’re looking forward to what he is going to do for us over the next year and a half.” Buku Khamis and Cam Rayner backed up their Big V selections with quality outings for the Jets. Khamis played as a permanent forward, working hard to provide a target and kicking two goals. “While he may not have got as good a supply as what we would have liked, he certainly won his position up forward,” Baker said. “He looked very dangerous.” With three goals, Rayner kicked half of the Jets’ six. While it was not Rayner’s most consistent performance, he did show flashes of the brilliance that has him being talked about as a potential AFL draftee later this year. “Cam did some of the things we’ve come to expect of him,” Baker said.

“He’s got the brilliance in his play and he always has good moments in a game.” That is where the positives ended for the Jets. They kicked themselves out of the contest with 2.7 in the first quarter and never recovered. “The first quarter, we just sort of wasted a lot of very easy opportunities,” Baker said. “This has been a theme across a few games and we’re aware of where we’re at with that. “We’re just not putting enough scoreboard pressure on the opposition and we’re not a good enough team at the moment to make the most of our chances.” Khamis and Rayner will be joined in the Vic Metro squad by Jets teammates Lachlan Fogarty and Tristan Xerri. Vic Metro’s first game at the under-18 national championships will be against WA at Domain Stadium in Perth on June 18. Lance Jenkinson

Falcons finally down Waves

Newport attacker Hayley Sofarnos is looking forward to representing Australia on the world stage. (Damjan Janevski)

Playing the long game By Lance Jenkinson Newport co-captain Hayley Sofarnos will don the green and gold jersey for the first time in 10 years as part of the national squad that will compete at the Women’s Lacrosse World Cup in England this July. The last time Sofarnos represented Australia on the international stage was in the under-19 world cup back in 2007, she was 16 at the time and considered a player to watch for the future. At the time, Sofarnos envisaged a call-up to the open age team would follow shortly after those championships, but the months on the calendar turned into years. It will finally become a reality when Sofarnos runs out for Australia at the world cup later this year. “You don’t expect to be waiting 10 years for it,” she said. “As frustrating as it’s been, it definitely makes me appreciate the selection even more.” Sofarnos’ build-up to the world cup will be eerily familiar to a decade ago. On that occasion, the attacker tore her ACL earlier that year and faced a race against time to be fit for the junior world cup.

Two weeks ago, Sofarnos went down clutching her knee in a club game for Newport, and she feared the worst. “There’s been a few too many parallels in my preparation,” she said. “Recently, I had a fall with my knee, and we were scared it was my ACL again. “It’s been a very challenging time, physically and mentally, but very relieved that it is much less severe than initially thought.” Sofarnos has stepped aside from club duty and could miss out on the honour of running out for Victoria at the national championships, but, more importantly, she has plenty of time to prepare for the world cup. “I’m in a bit of rehab, non-impact mode at the moment,” the 26-year-old said. “A lot of biking and swimming and a bit of off-leg work. “There’s no use risking it this close to the world championships.” Sofarnos, the daughter of former national team coach Sue, will be one of 10 Victorian players in the 16-member Australian squad. She already knows most of her teammates as part of a close-knit Victorian state side. Still, Sofarnos will not waste her time on the

sidelines, further studying team tactics and teammates’ habits while nursing her injury. “When I’m on the field, it will be continuing to gel with all my teammates, but if it’s off field [through injury], I’ll be working on those connections and taking advantage of seeing another view, the outside looking into the field,” she said. Sofarnos, a young president of the Newport Ladies Lacrosse Club, is hoping to add some firepower to the Australian team on her return. She will form a lethal attacking combination with the likes of Hannah Nielson, Sarah Mollison and Abbie Burgess. “The variation that we all bring is really exciting,” Sofarnos said. It will be the 10th world cup, which is held every four years, and every country other than the US will be considered underdogs. Sofarnos is adamant that her team is not playing for second best. “We’ve prepared as best as we can, we know the styles those teams want to play and we’ll be contesting for a medal, hopefully gold,” she said. “Anything is possible in sport, so we’ll give it our best shot.”

City West Falcons struggled to shake a determined Peninsula Waves yet still came away with the points in the Victorian Netball League championship division. What was expected to be a certain win for the Falcons against the ninth-placed Waves turned out to be a hard-fought struggle. Scores were level at the first change and again at the main break, the Falcons’ accuracy vital as they had three less scoring shots for the half. The Falcons had to switch their goaling combination at half-time, with goal attack Stephanie Puopolo on game time restriction and replaced by Tahnysha Salanoa, as she had been the previous week. The game remained even in the third quarter, with the Falcons leading by just a goal at the final break. But the Falcons’ experience showed through in the final quarter, their best of the game – they scored 15 to seven to seal a 53-45 win. Kath Knott was the best goaler on court, shooting 36 goals. Salanoa shot 10 goals from 10 attempts, while Puopolo shot nine goals from 10 attempts. Emily Post, who was playing centre for a second straight week, with Molly Jovic out injured, was the only Falcons player to feature in the votes. She received one vote, behind the Waves Monique French and Jessica Maher. The Falcons are fourth on the ladder after seven rounds, with five wins. It was a good night for the Falcons, with their division 1 and under-19 teams also recording wins. In division 1, the Falcons led from start to finish in a 62-45 win. After leading by five goals at quarter-time, the Falcons extended the lead in every quarter. Tharjini Sivalingan was the best of the Falcons’ shooters with 37 goals from 43 attempts. Stephanie Tyrell shot 17 goals while Bridget O’Halloran shot eight goals after moving into goal attack at half-time. Claire Moylan was named best on court. She moved to equal second in the division 1 most valuable player award. The Falcons’ under-19 team had a big win against the Waves. The ladder leaders flew out of the blocks with a 19-7 first quarter and the Waves were never able to recover, eventually losing 65-40.

MW has struck back. Mercedes-Benz raised the bar in the large luxury car segment with its techno-laden E-Class in 2016. Now the brand from Bavaria has returned fire with its own high-tech, luxury executive sedan, the new generation 5-Series. It takes many cues from its larger counterpart, the 7-Series, stylistically as well as in technology, including remote parking via the key fob, head-up display, wireless phone charging, surround-view camera, and the Driving Assistant Plus suite, Comfort Access. The chassis and body are also all new, with a greater use of lightweight materials including aluminium, magnesium and high-strength steel bringing the final weight down by 95kg. The interior has an angular look and new high-quality finishes, including aluminium and timber trims. Standard inclusions encompass dual-zone climate control, leather seats, artificial leather on dash and door uppers, infotainment with touch and iDrive controls, satellite navigation, and a larger head-up display. Interior finishes are spot-on, with tightly fitted panel gaps, consistent button feel, and a fine balance of timber and metal decor, and a range of handsome colour combinations available. The wheelbase has grown slightly, which equates to extra rear legroom. There is also plenty of head clearance to ease getting in and out. Boot space grows slightly to 530 litres, and in-cabin storage is well served with wide door pockets, covered front cupholders and the wireless charge-pad’s storage tray. In this latest generation, BMW hasn’t backed down from its dynamic roots, and the range still delivers an engaging experience for drivers. The 5-Series range offers the diesel

520d and 530d, and petrol 530i and 540i. The four-cylinder petrol 530i is tipped to be the most popular, and after time behind the wheel it isn’t hard to see why. The engine is whisper quiet and BMW’s eight-speed auto is calibrated seamlessly. The 2-litre four-cylinder 520d also performs more

harmoniously than might be expected of an entry-level engine. Six airbags (dual front, front seat side, full-length curtain), ABS brakes, traction and stability control, pre-collision preparation, and autonomous emergency braking are fitted as standard.

At its core, the 5-Series still does luxury well. It is quiet and comfortable, capable of travelling big distances with ease and in the 540i is powerful enough to assert genuine authority. All in all, the range maintains a focus on dynamic capabilities and balances plushness and contemporary luxe well.
