‘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.

families. 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.

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

Online hope for lost pets
E FFIC IE N T R A
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.

and micropchipped lost animals with owners where possible. “They’ve got a system where if you are picked up by the ranger and you are registered, you score a free ride home which I think’s brilliant,” he said. But pets that aren’t registered or chipped, or whose chips have not been updated, may end up at the North Melbourne pound. Last year, 384 cats and 282 dogs were brought to the home from Hobsons Bay and Macedon Ranges.
Police call to find suspect
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
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.”

EES claims trips between the city and Melbourne’s west will be cut by up to 20 minutes, but the report contains one example of a predicted 20-minute saving. 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
We are seeking further advice in relation to the - Clayton Ford matter
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.

Environment Effects Statement (EES), draft Planning Scheme Amendment and Works Approval application
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.

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.
