Square crime concern By Goya Dmytryshchak

A newsagency representative did not want to be quoted but said there needed to be more lights and cameras. Hobsons Bay police Inspector Michelle Young said patrols would be stepped up and talks would continue with traders. “We value any information that may assist us in our investigations of these incidents and other concerns as raised by the community,” she said. Hobsons Bay mayor Sandra Wilson said the council was working with traders and holding discussions with police on what more the council could do to help. “We know that crimes like this distress our community,” she said. “We all need to work together on increasing safety in public places.” The square shot to notoriety after the near-fatal bashing of former bookshop owner Jill Brookes on July 20, 2012. It is understood she is in a nursing home after the assault, which remains unsolved. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

(Damjan Janevski)

An Altona cafe owner is calling for action amid a spate of break-ins at Harrington Square, saying the shopping centre has become a playground for crooks. Birdcage Cafe Altona owner Adrian Davey said his business, which has been open six months, was last week burgled for the third time this year. “We’ve been done three times, the newsagency three times just this year, Cartridge World as well and the barber next door,” he said. He said that early on Wednesday morning, intruders spent considerable time drilling into concrete to get inside his cafe. “These people got their drills out, drilled the concrete – that would be extremely loud and take some time,” he said. “But no one sees or hears anything. “I was standing there [Wednesday] morning with the police officers and they said, ‘I wonder why it always gets hit around here’, and I said, ‘Take a look around you – there’s no one here, it’s pitch-black dark’. “The front carpark has no lighting, no cameras. It’s a playground for criminals – they can take their time.” PSOs who are posted at Westona station, opposite Harrington Square, leave after the last train. Rod Cain from Cartridge World said action was desperately needed after his business was also recently broken into. “They just smashed the front glass in the door and came in and ransacked the place and they didn’t take anything,” he said. “We need someone to help as soon as they can. “It’s been an all-too frequent occurrence of recent times.”

Snow job for Seaworks holidays There will be snow in Williamstown next month when Seaworks is transformed into a winter wonderland. Minnie, age 4, last week got a sneak peak of things to come when half a tonne of snow was trucked in to promote the event. Seaworks, at 82 Nelson Place, will be turned in to a wintry haven on July 14 and 15 from 10am-3pm. There’ll be tons of snow, a giant ice slide, chairlift, climbing wall, snowboard rides, snowman-making and snowball-tossing. The initiative by local parents, traders and Hobsons Bay council aims to attract visitors to Williamstown during winter and the July school holidays.

An ode to Norfolk Island Pine Think of the Esplanade in Altona and you immediately recall the Norfolk Island pines (Araucaria heterophylla). They’re as evocative of Altona Beach as the pier, the sea breeze and the sand. Council is planting new trees along the foreshore to complete the iconic avenue of Norfolk Island Pines along the Esplanade. The new plantings in this location will have temporary fencing installed around each tree to provide greater security and successful growth during the first year of establishment. Once the trees have established, the fencing will be removed.

Residents urged to ‘butt-out’ A human-sized cigarette butt is handing out free personal ashtrays and posters to urge smokers to dispose of their cigarette butts responsibly. Council has also installed footpath decals and extra cigarette butt bins to encourage residents to ‘Butt it – Bin it’. Cigarette butts are not only unsightly but also hazardous, as they contain chemicals that can leach into the environment, causing contamination. They’re also incredibly dangerous to birds and marine life who mistake the litter for food. The Cigarette Butt Litter Reduction Program has been made possible through funding from the Victorian Government’s Litter Hotspots Program administered by the Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group.

NEWS

VU tips major pain if cuts kick in By Stella Tzobanakis Victoria University’s reputation, contribution to the community and staffing levels will be severely threatened if proposed cuts are implemented. That’s the prediction of VU vice-chancellor Peter Dawkins following news of proposed federal government cuts to the Commonwealth Grant Scheme. Professor Dawkins said that if the cuts went ahead, VU would be “one of the

hardest hit” as it relied on teaching grants, was operating with a deficit of $11.4 million (as at 2016) and did some of the “heaviest lifting” in higher education in terms of social equality. He said the cuts would mean VU would lose an initial $3.2 million in revenue, rising to $6.5 million annually from 2019, and “almost certainly require at least an additional 50 redundancies over the next 18 months”. Professor Dawkins said although the university had “no immediate plans to close

campuses”, the cuts would reduce the quality of student services and research. He said they would “significantly” jeopardise the university’s reputation and its ability to undertake research for industry and the local community. “Due to our student profile and the relatively low SES [socioeconomic status] demographics of the region we mainly serve, we depend on this funding,” he said. VU, along with Swinburne University and others across Australia, including Western

Sydney, Newcastle and Charles Sturt, are collectively urging the government to reconsider the planned cuts. VU, the only university in Melbourne’s western suburbs, is undergoing a major restructure aimed at saving the university $30 million to return it to surplus by next year. It has been operating at a loss for four of the past five years. Professor Dawkins said government cuts would “almost certainly compromise our aim to return the university to surplus”.

Order adds up for accountant

W i l l i a m s t o w n’s Terry Heazlewood, well known as a Lions International district governor, has received a Medal of the Order of Australia in the Queen’s Birthday honours for service to higher education mainly for accounting. “I liked learning at university so much, I thought I’d like to stay there,” he said. He has worked with numerous tertiary institutions including Monash University, Riverina-Murray Institute of Higher Education, University of Wollongong, Mitchell College of Advanced Education and Massey University in New Zealand. When Riverina amalgamated with Mitchell, it became Charles Sturt University, Mr Heazlewood became the foundation professor of accounting. “We set up our accounting programs in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia,” he said. “However, you might have heard of the Asian financial crisis in the 1990s and at that point in time, prime minister Dr Mahathir in Malaysia said no more scholarships, no more students go to Australia – you’ve got to study in Malaysia. Because of the financial situation, they couldn’t afford to give scholarships. “So, we kept the programs over there and trained them up to teach the students anyway.” Mr Heazlewood also taught in Cambodia. China and London. “In London, we taught our business programs and an MBA … they were going very well until the British Government decided that international students shouldn’t be going into England and getting an Australian degree, they should be getting an English one. We had that small problem.”

Honour for compassionate service Williamstown’s Ella Bambery remembers the night World War II ended, singing Land of Hope and Glory in honour of the “mother country”. Now, she has been recognised in the Queen’s Birthday honours with a Medal of the Order of Australia for a life of service to the community of Williamstown and the western suburbs. Mrs Bambery, 99, is a foundation member and served as president for 10 years of the Williamstown Legacy Widows Club. During WWII, she was a member of The Concert Party, a troupe of entertainers who toured Victoria performing for convalescing

servicemen at repatriation hospitals and personnel at internment and prisoner-of-war camps. After the war, she joined Williamstown Little Theatre in 1949, where she served as a performer, committee member and treasurer until the 1980s. She describes one of her most rewarding roles as being caring for patients. Mrs Bambery has been a volunteer and phone counsellor with Mercy Palliative Care in the western region for 13 years, and has volunteered with Southern Cross nursing home at Newport and with Meals on Wheels.

“I loved the work and it enriched my life,” she said of her volunteering with palliative patients. “I met the most courageous and beautiful people, and I got far more out of it than I put in to it.” Mrs Bambery said she couldn’t believe she had been named in the Queen’s Birthday honours list. “I really didn’t think I deserved it,” she said. “Then I thought, Kylie Minogue gets it for her hot pants.”

PM coup for trailblazer

Man charged over court bomb threats

By Goya Dmytryshchak A Williamstown High School student has become the first female elected youth prime minister for the National Indigenous Youth Parliament. Year 11 student Aretha Stewart-Brown made national headlines when she addressed an estimated 50,000 protesters in Melbourne on Australia Day calling for the date of the national holiday to be changed.

‘‘

A Williamstown man has been charged over alleged bomb threats to Melbourne’s busiest court. A Victoria Police spokeswoman said that a 21-year-old man was arrested in Williamstown on Thursday, in relation to bomb threats to the Melbourne Magistrates Court in the CBD. He has been charged with hoax-related offences and using telecommunications to threat menace. Fairfax Media understands that all court proceedings in the building were temporarily adjourned on Thursday morning, with lawyers and their clients asked to leave courtrooms while police searched the building for potential bombs. The spokeswoman confirmed that police conducted safety checks at the building just after 11am. “The building was deemed safe after midday and no evacuations were required,” she said. One lawyer said that Magistrate Michelle Ehrlich had asked everyone in her courtroom to leave after receiving a note, saying there had been a “bomb threat”. People were blocked from entering the court building for several minutes. The Williamstown man has been bailed to appear at Melbourne Magistrates Court on August 9.

A couple of years earlier, she addressed an indigenous dawn service at the Shrine of Remembrance and attended the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings in Turkey as the state government’s indigenous representative. Her Aboriginal great-grandfather was a machine-gunner at Kokoda in World War II, but didn’t have the right to vote when he returned. Aretha, a Gumbaynggirr woman, fought off 17 candidates for the prime ministership at last month’s 50-member parliament, which debated issues important to their community. Now the one-time aspiring model has her sights firmly set on politics and education. “The area that I’m focussed on at the moment is education, and especially the reforms that I want to see placed within schools,” she said. “I’m focused in on the actual teaching of Aboriginal history, or the lack of it. “I want a set curriculum – I no longer want my history to be elective, I want it to be with

Leap into saving frogs A frog-friendly garden has opened in Maidstone. The Frog Friendly Habitat Garden at Dobson Kindergarten in Burns Street was created in April as part of a school holiday program run by Maribyrnong council in partnership with Melbourne Water, Newport Lakes Nursery and the kindergarten. During the opening, pupils and their families and friends learned to create a frog-friendly habitat with indigenous plants. Melbourne Water’s James Frazer said encouraging frog populations to flourish was important to the eco-system. “Frogs control insect populations and can also act as an indicator of waterway health as

they are sensitive to changes in their habitat,” Mr Frazer said. “One of the biggest threats to frog populations across Melbourne is a loss of habitat but it is possible to mitigate this by creating homes for frogs in backyards and community gardens. This helps to prevent species loss.” Melbourne Water is collecting data on frogs via the Frog Census App. The data collected through the program is used to help manage Melbourne’s frog populations and raise awareness of waterway health issues.

Kill threat charges

Wyndham North police have charged a 67-year-old Altona Meadows man with allegedly making a threat to kill. The charge relates to an alleged incident on June 6, where a call was made to an imam with a threat to kill. The man will appear at the Werribee Magistrates Court on October 30.

Bones not human

Bones found in Werribee South on June 2 have been confirmed as non-human. A worker using an excavator found the bones near the corner of Diggers Road and Duncans Road.

Old hospital’s new look unveiled By Goya Dmytryshchak

An artist’s impression of the revamped Williamstown Hospital.

Plans for the revamped Williamstown Hospital have been revealed as a $2.2 million fundraising goal gets nearer. The Heart of Williamstown appeal has raised more than $2 million with just $200,000 to go before the upgrade starts. Unlike most hospitals, 122-year-old Williamstown Hospital lacks outdoor spaces for patients and visitors.

Just ask any mum or dad about our emergency - Steve Bracks department

’’

The upgrade will include a new entry leading to a community hub in the “heart” of the hospital. Located in the centre of the building, the hub will have a cafe, courtyards and gardens for patient rehabilitation and exercise. The foyer will also be transformed, with a new visitor lounge area leading to a courtyard. Former Victorian premier and Williamstown resident Steve Bracks is the appeal’s patron. “For over 120 years, Williamstown Hospital has served our community and today it still plays a vital role in healthcare,” he said. “Just ask any mum or dad about our emergency department and they will tell you the care is fantastic. “At Williamstown, the medical and nursing expertise is unbeatable. Yet the hospital needs new facilities to meet the healthcare challenges of tomorrow. The Heart of Williamstown appeal will transform the public spaces of Williamstown Hospital to create a new heart within the hospital.”

The new hub will lead to the original hospital wings, which will become a new learning centre open to the community for health-related activities. A community push will be launched later this month to raise the final $200,000 needed for the project.

Looking for Educators VIP Family Day Care are now looking for experienced educators to join our growing team.

Enter stage right Williamstown High School’s $3 million theatre was officially opened on Friday. The theatre, officially known as the Performing Arts Centre of Excellence, will seat 304 people with some of the seats to soon bear name tags denoting the benefactors. Principal Gino Catalano said the opening was the end of a six-year journey. “Our vision grew from simply a stage and audience area to a performing arts centre superior or equivalent to any nearby,” he said. The theatre is a “legacy project” whose seed was planted when the school began planning for its centenary celebrations in 2011. “I distinctly remember Jim Williamston, school council member at the time, turning to me and saying, ‘Gino, what does the school need … and think big’.

“And think big we did.” Money for the theatre was raised through donor seats and walls and other grassroots fundraising. “One of my favourite recollections is of one of our year 7 students from 2012, Johnson Cumming, who took his money boxes and spent the weekend busking in the city for our theatre,” Mr Catalano said. “We knew it had to be built before he finished.” Williamstown MP Wade Noonan, whose government contributed $500,000 towards the theatre in the 2015-16 state budget, helped cut the ribbon at Friday’s opening. The school is seeking funding to begin stage two of works.

Wanted: house and stars By Goya Dmytryshchak Two noted Newport filmmakers are seeking actors and a 1940s house in the lead-up to a NASA short-film competition. Tom Vogel and Jerry Creaney are each entering a film, using 10 per cent NASA footage, in the third annual CineSpace short-film competition. Last year’s competition attracted 460 entries from 48 countries, with films by 15 finalists premiering at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.

‘‘

As long as they’ve got the American accent I think - Tom Vogel we can pull it off

’’

Vogel’s film will feature children playing baseball in a park next to a 1940s house, hence his search for a house from that era. “Apparently they shot some of the Marilyn Monroe series here in Newport, so I’m going to look in to that,” he said. “I’m after a 1940s house and if there’s not a park near it … we’ll marry it up to make it look like the house and the park are next to each other.” He is also seeking teenagers who can pull off a convincing American accent. “We’re just going to dress them up with some baseball caps and hopefully I can find something that looks like it can pass for the 1940s Yankees uniforms,” Vogel said. “As long as they’ve got the American accent, I think we can pull it off.” Creaney has built a spaceship for his film and is seeking travellers to a distant planet.

“I’ll be looking for a young teenage person – could be male or female – and two adults who could be their parents and a very old lady in her 80s or 90s,” he said.

Filming is expected to start this month. People can contact Tom Vogel at vogeldesign@optusnet.com.au and Jerry Creaney at jeromecreaney@hotmail.com

Due West arts festival finds new direction Maribyrnong’s new $170,000 annual arts festival has been launched. The inaugural Due West: Immersive Arts Festival will showcase works from local artists, organisations and venues across Melbourne’s inner west from August 10 to 27. It will include performance, workshops, visual arts, music and dance over the three weeks and focus on artists and creative industries based in the west and on works generated in and from the west. Maribyrnong mayor Catherine Cumming said the new festival – which has replaced the now defunct Big West Festival – should bolster the city’s growing reputation as a premier arts destination and aims to attract significant support to the west from government, philanthropic and corporate partners. The council has kicked in $85,000 and the state government has matched this funding. Local creative agency The Background has been engaged to deliver the inaugural festival in conjunction with the council. The full festival program will be announced in July. The closure of Footscray’s 20-year-old Big West Festival in mid-2016 meant the municipality was without a dedicated arts festival.

Drivers wanted to steer program By Charlene Macaulay

Learner driver Abraham Mathet with L2P co-ordinator Lisa Pisani. (Joe Mastroianni)

Wyndham and Hobsons Bay L-platers are getting a helping hand getting behind the wheel. The state government last week launched the WynBay L2P program, which recruits volunteers to help disadvantaged young people get their driver’s licences. The volunteers will use specially provided cars to supervise up to 40 learner drivers under the age of 21 who are finding it difficult to clock up the required 120 driving hours due to family, economic or other circumstances.

The L2P program has helped 3953 young people across the state get their P-plates and given nearly 10,000 learners on-road driving practice since launching in 2010. Wyndham council safer communities portfolio holder Kim McAliney said the initiative would have a real impact on the wider community. “By introducing a program like L2P, we can help young people gain the skills they need to become safer drivers,” Cr McAliney said. “Road safety is a major issue in our community. Over the last five years, 2635 young drivers aged between 18 and 25

were involved in collisions in Wyndham and Hobsons Bay. Tragically, 10 of these young people were killed and 321 were seriously injured.” Wyndham and Hobsons Bay councils, VicRoads, Laverton Integrated Services, Bendigo Bank Community Grants Program and Kia Motors Hoppers Crossing are supporting the initiative. To join an L2P program, participants must be aged between 16 and 20, hold a current learner’s permit and not have access to a vehicle, a supervising driver or both.

Evolve wins link land Property developer Evolve has splashed out $8.51 million on a Footscray development site offloaded by the state government. It is understood more than 18 tenders were lodged for the 4341 square metre parcel of land at 130-186 Buckley Street. The site, a mix of houses and commercial properties on a 280-metre stretch of Buckley Street, was compulsorily acquired for the Regional Rail Link line several years ago. It had been expected to fetch more than $4 million. Evolve director Ashley Williams said plans were still in a preliminary stage. “It probably lends itself to a townhouse-style development. It’s got a lot of frontage to Buckley Street,” Mr Williams said. Teska Carson agent George Takis, who handled the marketing campaign, declined to comment on the details of the deal but said “the outcome was extraordinary”.

The deal is part of a huge property sell-down by the government, including suburban schools and a swath of properties in Parkville, Collingwood and Clifton Hill acquired for the shelved EastWest Link. In the past month, five Clifton Hill houses have sold for a total $5.06 million, including 367 Wellington Street for $1.63 million and 137 Gold Street for $1 million. Next week, the former Jimmy Possum furniture showroom at 16 Alexandra Parade, an 880 square metre building on a 1062 square metre site, goes to auction through Savills. In Footscray, a 6.9-hectare development site on McNab Avenue fetched $13.5 million in February and other Buckley Street properties have sold totalling more than $6 million. Nicole Lindsay/The Age

Fundraiser kicks off

Sweet sound of success

By Stella Tzobanakis The not-for-profit Asylum Seeker Resource Centre – which has a base in Footscray – is holding an Australia-wide telethon to raise awareness and funds to support refugees and asylum seekers. The telethon will be held on June 20 – World Refugee Day – and the ASRC aims to raise $300,000 to provide 12,000 nights of shelter to hundreds of people seeking safety, 1699 mental health appointments, and one year of food and groceries for 45 families seeking asylum.

‘‘

The centre helped me to build my confidence

’’

- Flor Sedighi

In its second year, a team of more than 40 Australian identities including Samuel Johnson, Missy Higgins, Sam Pang together with ASRC volunteers and staff, will man the phones at the ASRC from 6am to midnight accepting donations. A donation station will also be set up on level one at Highpoint Shopping Centre from 10am to 6pm. Founded by Kon Karapanagiotidis in 2001, the ASRC supports and empowers more than 3000 people seeking asylum and refugees each year. Last year, the telethon raised $285,000. Former asylum seeker Flor Sedighi of Avondale Heights was among those the ASRC has helped. Ms Sedighi arrived in Melbourne in 2014 from Iran on a student visa aiming to study International Business, leaving behind her parents, sibling and friends. “I lived with a friend’s family in Preston before renting a unit with my husband,” Ms Sedighi said.

“At first I was overwhelmed, but as I became more familiar with Melbourne I appreciated its friendliness, multiculturalism and beauty. “The centre helped me to build my confidence through volunteering at the centre and holding two jobs at the time, through my support networks and colleagues.

NEWS

“The centre helped me to overcome the complexities and challenges of living and working in a new country and environment.” Telethon callers are invited to make a pledge and donate on the telethon hotline from 7am until 8.30pm on 1300 692 772.

An upcoming Yarraville live music venue has been selected as one of the first recipients of a new state government grant. The yet-to-be opened Mantra Studio Kitchen Bar was one of 26 Victorian music venues to receive a Good Music Neighbours grant of $2100 to undertake an acoustic assessment at its Campbell Street venue. Co-owner Patsy Toop, best known as one half of the musical duo The Long and Short of It, said the grant was a win-win. “It really focuses on the things that matter about being compliant,” Ms Toop said. “We’re very fortunate that we’re a fair way away from our neighbours and we’ll be operating outside business hours but we’re very conscious about noise.” Ms Toop said the “artists’ precinct” would open about July/August and incorporate a recording studio upstairs, live music venue downstairs seating 60 people as well as a cafe/restaurant. “We’re trying to encourage and showcase independent musicians, singers and songwriters,” Ms Toop said. The Good Music Neighbours program supports live music venues to undertake building projects – or seek advice – to manage sound, in and out of their premises. Venues can undertake a variety of projects from specialist acoustic advice, to installing double-glazing and sound-absorbing furnishings. Stella Tzobanakis

MY PLACE Penny Stephens is a West Footscray resident doing A Little Good for a lot of people. She talks with Stella Tzobanakis.

Three years. We were living in West Melbourne before. Why did you choose to live here? We needed more space because we were having another child and my husband had lived in the west before. I needed a bit of convincing as I was a bit of an eastern suburbs girl. I’m very glad that he did convince me as it’s been a very good move for us. There’s a real community here in West Footscray and it’s close to the city. It’s a great location. And you have even made West Footscray your business base? Yes. I started A Little Good as a home-based social enterprise business to provide a channel to market small business and entrepreneurs in the developing world. We’re part of the fair

trade and ethically-made movement. What is your favourite thing about this suburb? It’s the community feel. My eldest goes to the local school here … going there and already knowing so many people is just wonderful. Like I said, I know it’s a bit of a cliché but there really is a great sense of community here. Where do you like to go for a coffee and why? We go to Pod @ Post Industrial Design [on Barkly Street in West Footscray] because they do great food and have great service. And the best place to shop? We used to go to Little Saigon until that burnt down. Now we go to the Footscray Market because it’s noisy and colourful, and it’s good value – you can get the most weird and interesting things there.

Wyndham Harbour’s alluring lifestyle on full display Imagine living by the sea, with a harbour-side lifestyle and your own local beach to enjoy while the kids play during summer – that’s the lifestyle delivered by Wyndham Harbour. Wyndham Harbour management team member Nigel Sharp says a new display suite gives a real feel of life on the bay. “The suite is a great way to get a feel for the apartments,” he says. “The display showcases a full-scale kitchen and bathroom for a ‘touch and feel’ experience. “The display suite is located on-site at Wyndham Harbour, 50 Quay Boulevard, Werribee South, next to the cafe.” All apartments in The Lighthouse building have engineered timber flooring, reconstituted stone benchtops and Miele appliances in the generous kitchen area, wool carpets, and recessed downlights and LED lighting in the kitchens and bathrooms. The development has been so popular that all developer land lots sold out as of April this year and 75 per cent of the most recent and final apartment complex, The Lighthouse Building, has already sold.

Nigel says that if you’ve been considering Wyndham Harbour as a place to call home, time is running out – building is due to be completed by early to mid-2018 and it is predicted apartments will be sold out before then. “Lighthouse Apartments is one of only two apartment buildings in Wyndham Harbour,” he says. “It’s a fantastic lifestyle, really. Residents can enjoy great landscape-architect designed gardens and pathways, exclusive barbecue facilities, a community garden … and you are guaranteed a minimum of one car spot per apartment.” Bayside two-bedroom apartments start from $455,000. The architecture, conceived by SJB Architects, features a striking facade designed to maximise the views of Port Phillip Bay, the marina, internal gardens or the spectacular Melbourne city skyline.

Doctor Garang Dut is well aware of the dangers of untreated, preventable diseases. The former Sunshine College student and refugee from South Sudan grew up against a backdrop of war, spending 18 years in a refugee camp in Kenya. “I’ve seen how untreated diseases like hepatitis B can silently develop into liver damage and liver cancer,” the young doctor from Sunshine North said. To encourage other South Sudanese-born Australians to get tested for hepatitis B, he’s partnered with Cancer Council Victoria to spread the word about treatment and vaccination options. Hepatitis B and C infections are endemic in South Sudan, according to the World Health

FOOD REVIEW

CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir steps back in time for some warming fish and chips We love new-school fish and chips. We like the crisp, shiny places; we like the effort that is made with salads and the like; we love that often there is a variety of fish and other seafood available, matched by different methods of having it cooked. And we absolutely love that such places tend to operate as restaurants proper – and that means tables, chairs, and crockery and cutlery of the non-plastic variety. We have no interest in revisiting the “good old days” of fish and chips. But for some people, that does hold appeal. And a sub-set of such people involves those for whom old-school fish and chips ideally have a particularly British bent. The Little Chippy could’ve been created for them. It’s old-school from the ground up. Mind you, half the menu is dedicated to burgers and the like. But the other half of the food list tells the story. No potato cakes or dimmies here. But there is curry sauce and mushy peas and battered sausages. The place is done out in minimalist takeaway style, with in-house eating restricted to pozzies available at the window bench and its tall stools. I’m definitely up for giving the food a go! And if that’s the case, I may as well go the whole hog. So I order the North Atlantic cod with chips ($16), with a tub of Little Chippy’s coleslaw ($3) on the side. It’s been a long time since I settled in for a fish-and-chip feed wrapped in paper.

Ph: 9363 1030

THE LITTLE CHIPPY Address: Sanctuary Lakes Shopping Centre, Point Cook Phone: 7379 7065 I like the chips – there’s plenty of them and they’re defiantly old-fashioned and a long ways from shoestring fries and beer-battered chips. The fish? Well, it’s a mixed bag. As soon as I try to pick it up, it falls apart into several different pieces, with some of them losing their batter in the process. I’m unsure if this is a characteristic of this particular fish species, or if it’s something to do with the fact that as an import, it’s presumably been frozen. Whatever its cause, it’s not something I want to see in my fried fish. However, it is very nice indeed – mild of flavour, well cooked and with just the right amount of al dente meatiness. The surprise of my meal is the coleslaw. What looks like a regulation version of the gloopy and over-dressed takeaway joint salads found the length and breadth of the land turns out to be superb – fresh, crunchy, nicely on the salty side and a bargain at $3.

Palm Lake is just the place for a life of luxury As people hit their 50s, thoughts begin to turn to the next lifestyle stages, such as becoming empty-nesters and, further down the track, the retirement years. Some couples don’t want to rattle around – and maintain – a big house when the kids leave, nor want a large, attention-hungry garden to worry about while travelling, which they may now they have the means and freedom to pursue. Palm Lake Resort Truganina is designed for such people – those who want the benefits of downsizing or an active retirement in a five-star lifestyle community. The resort is a place that welcomes you back from your latest cruise or overseas adventure, with gardens looking lush, home secure and a meal to be had in the Paradise Palms Clubhouse bistro. Of course, for people who are just as happy to “play” around the resort, there’s no shortage of home-grown fun, with activities ranging from upbeat to relaxed. The indoor heated pool, spa and sauna is fab for a morning swim or to get into aqua aerobic classes. Maintaining fitness is also catered for with a gym, Pilates classes and yoga, as well as ballroom and line dancing activities which get extra ticks for being a fun way to socialise. There’s an undercover bowling green, bocce games, table tennis, mini and virtual golf, arts and craft classes, carpet bowls, bingo, darts, pool and snooker. And that only counts some of the perks. Another is the luxury 49-seat cinema – relaxation central, plus great for the visiting grandchildren. The social club organises excursions in the resort’s bus, with a weekly shopping trip an always popular fixture. Palm Lake Resort has no entry fees or stamp duty when you move in, there are no council rates to pay and use of all facilities is unlimited. You also keep 100 per cent of any capital gain. Only seven homes remain in the final release, with well-priced two- and three-bedroom designs available. For a personal tour of the resort or more information, call 1800 686 096.

Property of the week

WILLIAMSTOWN 33 Anzac Crescent, 3016 Sweeney Williamstown: 9399 9111

Price: $1,875,000+

This property is in a beautiful part of Williamstown, set on a curved crescent close to the beach. While the simple facade is easy on the eye, it doesn’t do this property justice – there’s plenty of hidden details in the build that set it apart, including a focus on a small eco footprint. The Fasham Johnson-designed house is positioned on the block to take advantage of the sun’s orientation. Combined with insulation and double glazing it ensures a comfortable temperature year-round. The slab was first poured in 2002, but

not before the builders excavated down to rock to ensure a solid foundation. The result – even the paving in the courtyard is perfectly preserved as if it was laid last week. All external windows are double-glazed, and sun through large windows warms the slab during the winter months. In the summer, cross breezes from the ocean alone are said to cool living spaces. This property was built to be private and the spaces feel secluded as a result. The main bedroom has french doors opening to the front yard. A generous

walk-in-wardrobe is next to the en suite which features a double-length frameless shower. The second bedroom has a built-in robe, and opposite is a third bedroom with walk-in robe, currently being utilised as a study. This room has views of the courtyard, with paving and hanging gardens. The kitchen has a step-in pantry, loads of storage, Westinghouse oven and Blanco electric hotplate cooktop. The laundry is accessed from the kitchen and also has external access.

The main living area has cathedral ceilings, a fireplace and custom cabinetry. It’s swathed in natural light. Outside spaces are a foodie’s dream with grapefruits, mandarins, heirloom apples, olives, lemons, oranges, peaches and apricots, with a sectioned-off purpose-built vegie garden. There is a 20,000 litre water tank in the backyard connected to the main water service. Sam Freestone 25 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY STAR WEEKLY \ JUNE 14, 2017


STAR WEEKLY ADVERTISING FEATURE

WHAT WOMEN WANT The past approach with selling property was a fast, data-driven one where vendors were advised not to be attached to the property and see it only as an asset in-asset-out financial transition. But as we all know, emotions run high when it comes to the place we call home. Further, most recent census figures (2011) show women make over 90 per cent of household financial decisions and when purchasing a family residence, it is women making the call on where the family will live. “Women want the experience to be more relationship-based rather than transactional, and at the same time are savvy and educated about their decision-making. Also there is the very maternal attachment to ‘home’,” Summer says. “This also is relevant to men, but sometimes the blokey approach shuts that down. It needs to be respected in its own right, and female real estate agents offer that.

What is feminism these days? How has the gender debate informed the professional world? These are questions many people ask. From power suits to motherhood, men embracing paternity leave to hidden sexism; male feminists and the pay gap, it’s a minefield. Sweeney Yarraville director, Summer Salvato, speaks to Sam Freestone.

“There is this inaccurate attitude towards selling family homes in that the emotion needs to be taken out of it. “It’s careless. When you are dealing with someone’s home, if you don’t take that personally, then you are doing your clients a disservice.”

SUMMER’S STORY Sweeney Estate Agents franchisee and director Summer Salvato is passionate about empowering her Yarraville-based staff, men and women alike, and is changing the face of inner-west real estate in the process.

want our women to achieve – and I want our male agents to feel the same way.

Summer and I met at a cafe in Newport to talk about women’s representation in the real estate industry.

“In the interview process, the answers I am seeking aren’t what some think and I can tell by their answers pretty quickly, the content of their character, and I go off that … as well as sales results of course.”

An American who moved to Australia more than a decade ago, she still has her mid-western accent. She has glossy black hair, a warm smile and a steely gaze. She’s focused, strong-willed and carries with her a strong sense of social justice.

“We are not doing this because we are afraid of a sexual harassment lawsuit – we are doing it because these are the kind of attributes in people that I want to work with,” she says.

“It was such a horrible experience, with such an emotive sell, I knew I could do better. That experience stayed with me and that’s when I decided to get into real estate and did so as soon as I moved.”

But Summer says that women can be sexist and can be their own worst enemies.

We discuss family, children and flexibility in workplaces for fathers and mothers.

“Sweeney sees how women are more detail-oriented when it comes to the sell. There is an advantage there, a different approach which we value. “Further to that we went on a recruitment drive in 2015 to actively bolster our female staff numbers and because of that we are 50/50 male/female.” So what does he think about the pay-gap debate?

“Having been in this industry for more than 10 years and been involved with many offices over that time, I know this kind of work culture is not the norm.

“Every opportunity is made available. Gender is irrelevant.”

But then the direction quickly turns to issues many women face in male-dominated industries.

She says renovating the office has helped lift the whole mood of the operation.

Issues such as sexism.

Out-dated professional practices are slowly fading away – so much so that coming generations wonder what all the fuss has been about.

With a focus on recruiting agents with the same approach to life and who share the same priorities – family, professional ethics and gender neutrality – Summer is creating a team that reflects how she likes to do business.

“Especially in the past three to four years, the pendulum has swung,” he says.

“There isn’t one,” he says.

“We also just renovated the office and this feeds into staff morale. I could have just done the facade, but I want my staff to be happy.”

“I can just do what I can do … and it starts with practising what you preach.”

Regarding the ‘old-boys’-club’ style of real estate, he says today Sweeney Estate Agents has a corporate vision for equality and professionalism.

“I am employing people, not men and women,” she says. “I want professionalism. I want the language used to be respectful. I want to give my clients a contemporary service.

We talk, about sales approaches to property and how they can differ in men and women.

“This isn’t just in my industry – it’s rife in the professional world,” she says. “I know I’m over it and the funny thing is, most men are too.”

Director of Sweeney Corporate, Darren Dean, had been trying to get Summer on-board for years and eventually, he did just that.

Summer says she actively seeks male agents who are contemporary men, who are feminists and have equal gender respect.

“It all started when I sold a house very dear to me – my grandfather’s house in the US – before I moved to Melbourne,” she says. “I was lied to about offers, the whole thing was a sham – and this was from a female agent.

The emotional connections of properties need to be taken into consideration and that is something Summer schools her agents in – the emotional context of selling homes.

THE DEATH OF THE OLD BOYS’ CLUB?

“The power I have to enact change is in the type of people I am recruiting and finding out what their priorities are.

“All agents are equal. Same percentage, same training, same recruitment philosophy, same catchment cultivation areas. Same allowances.

THE SWEENEY YARRAVILLE APPROACH John is a local professional who has bought and sold with Summer. “I have noticed when I’ve purchased properties in the past, she has an intimate knowledge of the property she is selling. She’s fantastic to deal with. “You can feel with some agents that the onus is on you.” Asked if it is a gender influence, John is neutral on the subject.

Summer says she spoke to her 12-year-old just the other day, about women’s battles through the decades.

“I can’t say for sure if it is gender thing or a personality thing, but Summer went above and beyond to offer a service that made me feel secure in my choice rather than leaving me to my own devices and it being purely transactional in nature.

“I asked him if he knew what feminism was and he couldn’t answer,” she says.

“I don’t think we are doing any one thing specifically,” she says.

“Then I said, with a previous job I had, I was paid less, did more and achieved better targets than a previous male counterpart. I asked him if he thought it was OK, just because I was a woman – and he said, ‘No way! That’s not OK.

“I have an idea about how I want our office run and how I

“And I said to him, ‘Welcome to feminism’.”

“I would say that I would definitely go to her even if she wasn’t in the area. She works super hard, she is engaging and a delight to work with.” Regarding culture at Sweeney Yarraville, Summer says the ‘tall poppy’ syndrome in Australia took her by surprise when she first settled down here and she tried to breed a culture that promotes success. “I never knew the term ‘tall poppy’ until I came here. In America, success is celebrated and I try to bring that into my office. If someone succeeds, we all succeed.

ENGINE \ 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol turbo POWER \ 169kW at 4700-6200rpm TORQUE \ 350Nm at 1500-4600rpm

What is it? Something of a cult classic. Enthusiasts have cottoned on to Skoda’s mid-sized performance car, the Octavia RS sedan and wagon, that shares key elements with Volkswagen’s Golf GTI. This one is a limited-edition model with more grunt, improved dynamics and sharper looks.

What’s it like inside? A little demure, with swathes of black, charcoal and grey material broken up by red highlights. The gauge cluster is clear and concise and

FUEL USE \ 6.3/100km TO TEST DRIVE \ skoda.com.au

(Mark Bean)

What’s the cost and what do you get? That depends on whether you want a sedan ($41,490) or the more popular wagon ($43,190). Either way, you get a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that drives the front wheels through a clever electronically controlled, mechanically locking differential. Naturally, as a top-of-the-range model, it is also loaded with gear, including active cruise control, dual-zone climate control, sat nav and smartphone apps such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A five-year warranty with capped price servicing helps seal the deal. Skoda’s place as a member of the Volkswagen Group allows it to use technology from its big brother. Intriguingly, this limited-run model is available only with a manual transmission and it features Volkswagen’s VAQ active differential as standard. What’s it like to drive? Spunky, but not quite as agile as a Golf GTI. The Octavia hits a middle ground more fitting of its practical character, with more stability than Volkswagen’s benchmark hatch.

TRANSMISSION \ Six-speed manual, front-wheel drive

the infotainment display works seamlessly. Prod the “vRS Mode” button on the centre console and you get a variety of driving modes, including a customisable setting that allows you to tailor the car’s steering, suspension or driveline responses.

SPORT Seagulls flying with five wins in a row

Williamstown ruckman Nick Meese applies a vice-like tackle on Sandringham’s Nick O’Kearney. (Shawn Smits)

has improved to 6-2 and rocketed up to second spot on the ladder. The Seagulls will go into Sunday’s clash at Burbank Oval against the struggling North

Ballarat as hot favourites. Meanwhile, swingman Zaine Cordy kicked the clinching goal in Footscray’s thrilling four-point win over Essendon at the Victorian University Whitten Oval on Friday night. With Essendon leading entering time-on, Cordy took a contested mark and kicked truly for his second crucial goal of the quarter, ensuring the Bulldogs came away with their second consecutive win. Lukas Webb, Tom Liberatore and Mitch Honeychurch were prolific ball winners in the Bulldogs midfield, while Tom Campbell was strong in the ruck. Footscray improved to 5-3 to sit fifth on the VFL ladder ahead of a difficult away trip to face Casey Demons on Saturday night. Lance Jenkinson

Bombers’ soul search By Lance Jenkinson It’s not too late for a Braybrook recovery, but how much do the players really want it? That’s the question Bombers co-coach Heath Hunter asked his under-performing players during the Western Region Football League division 3 Queen’s birthday break. The Bombers went into the season full of optimism after a strong recruiting campaign was complemented by a preseason to match. Five weeks in, they were a little inconsistent with two wins, two heavy losses and a further loss that was brought about by a game that was abandoned in the second half due to wild weather, but nothing that could not have been fixed. “We had a massive preseason,” Hunter said. “We had probably 50 or 60 blokes on the training track, compared to last year when we had 10 to 15.” Then came that dreaded date, May 20. In a shock, Braybrook was upset by bottom-of-the-ladder Laverton Magpies on the road at Laverton Park. The two-goal loss probably flattered the Bombers after the Magpies registered eight more scoring shots and finished with 9.17. Nobody saw that result coming, particularly in that manner. What was to follow has been even more deflating for Braybrook. That loss seemed to have sapped the energy out of Pennell Reserve. The gaudy numbers at training in preseason are down considerably. “We’ve fallen away completely, and we can’t put our finger on why,” Hunter said, following heavy losses to top two sides Parkside and Wyndham Suns. “Trying to get commitment off blokes at the moment is just hard. “I know if we were sitting 6-0, they’d be down there, or if the weather was warmer.” If Braybrook wants to make a late dash to the finals, they need a change in mindset, and perhaps follow the lead of captain Luke Fox and defender Nathan Calleja, who are giving their all. The return of injured stars, forward Mick Lindsey, co-coach Jamie Lane and midfielder Ricky Howell, will help the Bombers cause, but it will not be enough. “We’re going to sit down tonight and try and put some stuff on the table,” Hunter said before training on Thursday. “There’s a five-week block and if we can tick off three or four wins, it will really set up our season for the back half of the year.” The WRFL returns on Saturday with Braybrook looking to get its season back on track away to North Sunshine.

IN THE DOGHOUSE ■ Spotswood Football Club recently marked its 90th anniversary with a fitting celebration at the Williamstown Town Hall. Club stalwart Tony Walshe held sway with an entertaining speech outlining the history of the club and the many traditions of the Woodsmen. Any club boasting 90 years can be proud of its survival but Spotty has success that all envy: 16 senior flags, 64 reserves and junior premierships, a Brownlow Medallist (Fred Goldsmith) and over a hundred players who have played at either VFL or AFL level. Current AFL stars Callan Ward and Bachar Houli proudly wore the green and gold of Spotswood and future star Lachlan Fogarty looms as the next star to emerge from McLean Reserve. One of the more staggering statistics of the history of the club is that in 90 years it has only had 18 presidents. 2017 looks to be another good year for the Woodsmen with their senior team blossoming under Anthony Eames, a former junior returning to take the club into its next phase of success. ■ Ronnie Simmons is only 10 years younger than Spotswood and the fitness fanatic is, as always, in great shape. The local who’s who of sport in the west turned out for Ron’s 80th birthday recently in Altona. Ronnie is probably best known as runner for the Footscray Bulldogs where he is a life member, but his help and guidance to many of the sports stars of the west over the years has been and will be his legacy. You would never meet a more humble human being than Ron, who was really touched by the turn up at his 80th. Bulldog stars of the past like Kelvin Templeton, Brad Hardie, Peter Welsh, Terry Wheeler, Rick Kennedy, Gordon Casey and Ross Abbey (to name a few) gathered to mark the milestone. Ron is a man of few words - always has been, always will be but his actions have always spoken volumes. ■ The changing faces at the WRFL continue with the resignation of Tim Shellcott from Football Operations Manager after a relative short time in the position. Tim has been at league headquarters for more than six years but less than a year in this role having taken over from David Newton. Tim finishes at the end of the month and along with David Newton, former CEO Bob Tregear and long time radio caller Steve Thom all moving on in recent months, the league is getting a new look under CEO Matthew Duck.

Vic Metro honour a handy marker for a Jet on the rise Late-blooming Western Jets ruck-forward Tristan Xerri is ecstatic after being selected to represent Vic Metro in the AFL under-18 national championships. Xerri, a product of Caroline Springs in the Western Region Football League, was so far off the radar three years ago that he was not considering a football career, let alone pulling on the Big V. “A few years ago, I was barely around the Jets or anything – I didn’t see this coming at all,” he said. “All throughout my juniors, I was never really going anywhere with my footy, but then I had a good season and had a call-up late [to the Jets squad]. “I’ve been lucky enough to play a few games with the Jets and had a good season [in the TAC Cup] last year. It means so much to be in the [Vic Metro] team – I’m rapt to be a part of it.” Growing up in Caroline Springs, Xerri had more envisaged a career in cricket. But as he started to fill out into his 202-centimetre, 95-kilogram frame, it became clear that football was where his talents lay.

Last season, Xerri announced himself with the Jets in the TAC Cup, before playing a pivotal role for Caroline Springs in its barnstorming run to the WRFL division 2 premiership. Much of Xerri’s development as a footballer and athlete can be attributed to his time with Lakeview Senior College. The 18-year-old is part of the college’s elite sports football program, which allows him to combine studies and football. Scott Korczynski, the program coach and coach of Caroline Springs, has been a major influence for Xerri. “It’s great, three days of the week being involved in the program,” Xerri said. “You get a weights program, work on your skills and you’re touching the footy every day. “Since I’ve been doing the program with him, my footy has definitely improved. Scott gave me the opportunity last year to play a couple of senior games for Caroline Springs and we ended up winning the flag in the seniors. “He’s had a huge impact throughout school and local footy and putting my name out there.”

“I’m a bit of a confidence player – when I get one early, I just play off that.” Xerri’s great strengths are his contested marking and his versatility. He wants to develop into a modern day ruck-forward, splitting time between the ruck and key forward roles. It is a role that former AFL star Brad Ottens, an assistant coach for Vic Metro, played for Geelong and Richmond in his playing days, so Xerri is learning from the best. “I definitely want to impact the scoreboard, but at the same time doing my work around the ground and in the ruck,” he said. Xerri, one of four Western Jets in the Vic Metro squad along with Buku Khamis, Cameron Rayner and Lachlan Fogarty, is hoping to earn a starting role for the championship opener against WA at Domain Stadium on Sunday. “Playing against the best is all you can ask for,” he said. “That will be a great experience.”

Xerri’s selection for Vic Metro was all but confirmed when he produced a dazzling display in a trial game against Vic Country. It was in that game that Xerri truly came to believe he belonged. “That was huge for me,” he said. “Taking that first grab early in the game and slotting a goal, that probably lifted my confidence.

Lance Jenkinson

Young hoop leads by example By Lance Jenkinson Paul Tsapatolis is more than just the dominant centre that will lead Vic Metro’s title defence at the under-16 national basketball championships in Perth next month. Tsapatolis can be just as proud of his achievements off the court as he is with his basketball form on it - and that tells you all you need to know about his character. The 14-year-old from Point Cook is the stand out basketballer in his age group in Victoria, hence him being named captain of Vic Metro, but he is also a leader on and off the court and switched on academically in year nine at Maribyrnong College. That’s why Basketball Victoria awarded Tsapatolis with the honour of young athlete of the year for 2016. “It was a very big surprise,” he said. “When they announced my name, I had the biggest shock. “It’s about me collective as a person, as much as on the basketball court. “Coaches don’t just speak about on the court, they talk about off the court and how you communicate, what you do on your off days, do you do homework or do you party. “It’s the biggest award that I’ve had.” Tsapatolis will be a major presence for Vic Metro at the nationals. It is hard not to be when you stand at 205 centimetres, about six-foot-eight in the old language, at the age of just 14. Tsapatolis knows that height alone is not enough in modern basketball, so he is working tirelessly to evolve into a do-it-all modern day centre. “With the centres in this generation, it’s not like back then with [former NBA great] Shaquille O’Neal, where you had to be big and dunk over anyone and just rebound and you don’t have to shoot,” Tsapatolis said. “Now it’s a lot like [current NBA stars] DeMarcus Cousins and Marc Gasol, especially the European centres, they can do everything, they pass, dribble, rebound, score, shoot threes and have to be as much as a guard as a centre.” Tsapatolis will relish the chance to captain Vic Metro. He was part of the gold medal-winning under-16 Big V team last year - the first bottom-age player to take to the court for that team since top NBA draft pick Ben Simmons. Already, Tsapatolis’s leadership has shone through, as teammates pick his brain for information leading up to this year’s tournament, starting on July 8. “To make it again and be captain is even better as it means I’m going on the right path,” Tsapatolis said. “The players will come to me and ask what it was like last year and what they should do off court to prepare.

Paul Tsapatolis has a massive future ahead in basketball. (Damjan Janevski)

“They ask for advice from what I picked up last year.” Tsapatolis has already spent time at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra. He is hoping to land a full time position at the AIS down the track. Of more immediate concern is to perform for Vic Metro, which is sure to be attended by basketball scouts from Australia and beyond. “If the under-16s nationals work out well and I do dominate, I presume I’ll get offers from AIS coaches,” Tsapatolis said. “There’s always scouts, Australian coaches come down and people live stream stats and watch the games.

“If you dominate this year, it means you are the best in your age group in Australia, so then Australia tryouts will come up, where you’re competing against the age above.” While the dream of Australian under-age representation and ultimately a professional basketball career is what Tsapatolis is striving for, he is quick to point out that he still has four years left as a junior and intends on using every minute to refine his game before taking the next steps. He loves going to work every day in the Maribyrnong College’s athlete development program, and feels blessed to work with a host of coaches both inside and outside of the

program, including Brian Vaughns, Shane McDonald, Ash Arnott, Andy Lim, Dom Linossier, Warwick Giddey, Phillip Dernehl and long time mentor Peter Fleming. “I do appreciate all their help,” Tsapatolis said. Tsapatolis is the June nominee of the Deeble Deeble Rising Star Award. The award, hosted by the Sunshine Western Region Sports Club and Star Weekly, recognises young athletes from the western suburbs who have achieved outstanding results at state and/ or national levels. Tsapatolis will receive $1000, donated by the Yarraville Club Cricket Club, and other prizes to assist him in achieving his sports goals.
