Council’s $127m spend Maribyrnong home owners will pay on average $2000 for their rates in the next financial year. The city has allocated $127.3 million of its $134 million budget to major projects. It will increase average residential rates by almost 2 per cent – equivalent to about $38 per household – in 2017-18. The rise is on par with last year’s increase, which pushed the average annual rate notice up to $1968.78. Maribyrnong corporate service director Celia Haddock said the value of a property also contributed to how much a home owner in the city would actually pay. “The average dollar amount ratepayers will pay differs per property as rates also reflect increased property valuations,” Ms Haddock said. “This means some residents will pay more while others may find that, due to a low valuation, their rates have not greatly increased.” To offset the rise, pensioners will receive a 2 per cent rate-rebate increase from $181.70 to $185.35. As outlined in the council budget, which was adopted last week, rates are considered “a major source of operating revenue, accounting for, or in excess of 71 per cent of all income”. Rates raised in Maribyrnong during 2017-18 are expected to pour almost $95 million into the city’s coffers. Statutory fees and fines, user charges

and government grants are also significant contributors to total income. The 2017-18 budget also reaffirms the city’s improved financial position. The city has been back in the black since July 2016 after almost a decade in debt.

Asset sale signals shipyard’s end By Goya Dmytryshchak Victoria’s last shipyard at Williamstown is selling off its plant equipment, sinking all hope that work may start up again. Tiger Asset Group is conducting the major shipyard and fabrication asset sales on behalf of BAE Systems, via an expressions of interest campaign until December 28. BAE Systems Australia spokesperson Kaye Noske said the company had been working to dispose of assets since shipbuilding operations

ceased at the site in 2016. “This includes the transfer of assets to other parts of the business and the sale of assets where we see no immediate requirement,” she said. “It is important to note that the Williamstown site continues to house an important engineering and project-management hub, which provides pivotal support to our national maritime sustainment business.” Williamstown historian Brian Haynes said that in 1913 the dockyard was known as the State Shipbuilding Yard and was taken over by the

Victorian Navy,  the largest fleet in Australia.” Last month, the federal government announced its $89-million naval shipbuilding plan, which included major investment in South Australia and Western Australia. Australian Manufacturing Workers’ Union state secretary Craig Kelly described the end of shipbuilding in Williamstown as “very disappointing”. “It’s another lost opportunity for Victoria and the people who built those ships,” he said. “It’s an opportunity gone begging.”

Commonwealth government in World War I. “Ownership passed to the Melbourne Harbor Trust after WWI but during World War II it was requisitioned back by the Commonwealth and was known as the HM Naval Dockyard Williamstown, but commonly known by all as the Williamstown Naval Dockyard,” he said. “In 1987, it passed into private control, where it remains today. Today’s southern section of the BAE’s site encompasses the long-gone Naval Torpedo Depot and drill hall, harking back to the days of the 19th-century

Foodies’ skills are recognised A Footscray-based catering enterprise employing and training people with a disability has received national recognition. Yooralla Catering in Hyde Street placed second in this year’s Australia-wide Supported Employment Excellence Awards, which celebrate enterprises that encourage people with a disability to work to their full potential. To date, this enterprise has provided practical training for almost 90 people, building the capacity and skills of people with all types of disabilities. Catering and hospitality manager Joanne O’Connell said she was thrilled that Yooralla Catering has been recognised for excellence on the national stage in its third year of operation. “We began with a group of supported employees who had a passion for food and cooking,” Ms O’Connell said. “Because our customers have spread the word about our quality and service, we’ve quickly built into a sustainable enterprise in our own right. National recognition has been wonderful. “Our supported employees know they are a part of something that’s doing well, and being recognised; the whole team were really proud.” Daniela Koterski has been a employee of Yooralla Catering for the past two years and echoed Ms O’Connell’s sentiments. “It’s amazing we’ve actually been recognised,” Ms Koterski said. “I just love working here. The staff that I work with are just awesome, friendly and happy and we all work well together.” Yooralla Catering’s training programs include certification in food handling, health and safety.

The world’s longest-established AC/DC tribute band is playing in Williamstown to mark Bon Scott’s birthday. The late singer would have been 71 on July 9. Aussie DC, formerly known as Dirty Deeds, has featured Altona Meadows’ own Alfi Rocker on vocals since 1990. “One of the things I love about AC/DC, beside the fantastic music, is the fact that they are not posers, not pretentious like almost every other successful band,” Rocker said. “They come across as five working-class men – that’s just my style too.” Aussie DC is performing at the Rose of Australia hotel on July 7 with a special guest from Sydney, Tony Currenti who played drums on AC/DC’s first album High Voltage. Aussie DC will perform tracks from both the Bon Scott and Brian Johnson eras. Doors open at 8pm and tickets cost $20. The following night another tribute band, Bon But Not Forgotten, will play at the Yarraville Club. The band features former AD/DC drummer Simon Wright and bass guitarist Mark Evans. Wright joined AC/DC after the departure of Phil Rudd in 1983, while Evans played on the albums T.N.T, T.N.T Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap and Let There Be Rock. Doors open at 8pm on July 8; tickets are $38.

Club still riding high Williamstown’s All Aboard Club celebrates its 80th birthday on July 4. The All Aboard Club, which had various branches, was started by radio and TV broadcaster Doug Elliot in 1937 to raise money for charity and to send food parcels to Australian soldiers overseas. President Wendy Taylor said the Williamstown club, which has 87 members, is the last still standing. “We’re a social club and we work for charity,” she said. “It was more or less, you help anybody out. To go back through the old minutes is very interesting … there might have been a chap who couldn’t pay for his medication and somebody would find out about it so they paid the bill.

“Since 1991, [Williamstown Hospital records show] we’ve given $103,720 to the hospital.” Secretary Marni Brunt said the club was initially formed to help the war effort. “When it first started, it was more to help people in Williamstown have somewhere to go,” she said. “If the ship was in Williamstown and it was going to England, they would take down stuff and give it to the sailors to take home.” The club’s motto is: ‘All aboard for you and me’. Members meet in the Williamstown Town Hall chamber and for social afternoons. For inquiries, call Wendy Taylor on 0421 747 040 or Marni Brunt on 0405 338 483. Goya Dmytryshchak

“There has been quite a few comments about the ground being open. It is a community space and we want all grounds and reserves to be accessible for the community to use (properly of course) all year round,” it said. “Our grandstand is an amazing place to watch football, but it is not realistic to restrict access.” Maribyrnong community services director Clem Gillings said it was “sad” to see the extent of damage that had been caused by the fire. “This grandstand and sporting precinct is an integral part of both the Yarraville sporting and local school community,” Ms Gillings said. Temporary fencing has been put in place around the grandstand, but the oval remains available for use. Ms Gillings said the council would consider “all options to manage risk in these circumstances, and will continue to liaise with the tenant clubs to discuss best available options”.

A grandstand at a popular Yarraville sports ground should be closed off to the public while not in use in a bid to protect it from being totally destroyed, according to one of the clubs that uses it. Yarraville Cricket Club president Matt Beasley is calling on Maribyrnong council to make the W. Pedley Stand at Yarraville Oval – on the corner of Williamstown Road and Anderson Street – out of bounds at particular times to stop it from being further damaged. “If we lose that grandstand, which is a centrepiece of western suburbs history, it’ll be devastating,” he said. “We have to do something to protect it because once it’s gone, it’s gone.” The appeal follows a fire at the grandstand on Saturday, June 17, about 3.40am. MFB spokesperson Bruce Weaver said four fire trucks attended the fire, which took almost two and a half hours to bring under control, with accessibility difficulties affecting firefighters’ efforts. Mr Weaver said the fire was in the floor area of the grandstand and fire crews had to remove cement sheeting installed over the wooden floor. Police have deemed the fire suspicious and are investigating. Footscray Detective Senior Constable Mark Abela said police believed youths set light to rubbish, causing part of the grandstand to catch fire. Mr Beasley said fires at the grandstand were “a regular occurrence”. He described the latest as “the biggest” and said it highlighted the need to protect it. “We’re not saying block it off to the community – it’s a community asset at the end

Yarraville Seddon Eagles president Andy Willis said the club was disappointed by the damage but thankful for assistance being provided by Maribyrnong council. “We are working together to restore the grandstand to ensure that it is safe as soon as possible and reopened to the community,” he said A post on the Yarraville Seddon Eagles Facebook page indicated the club and its committee were “deeply upset” by the grandstand fire.

Program ‘won’t fill gap’

MPs spar over level crossings

By Goya Dmytryshchak Russell Urmston, who lived in the Hobsons Bay Caravan Park for 27 years before it was demolished for development, says he would have been homeless if not for a program run by the Tenants Union of Victoria. On June 30, the state government will cut the $250,000 funding for the program. The Tenants Union says its Rooming House Outreach Program is the only one of its kind that goes into places such as legal and illegal rooming houses and low-rent accommodation to help people like Mr Urmston. The 61-year-old is now living in public housing in Braybrook and considers himself one of the lucky ones. “If I didn’t have them helping me, there’s no way known I’d be where I am today,” Mr Urmston said. “They were saying they can help people then they came around and asked me. “I said, ‘I’m out of work’. My caravan was falling apart because I’d had it for a long time. “They asked, ‘Where would you like to go?’ “I said, ‘Anywhere, within reason, as long as I’ve got a place because I don’t want to be homeless’. I wouldn’t have had any money so I don’t know what I’d be doing.” The Tenants Union’s outreach services identifies and reports illegal rooming house operators to bring dodgy properties into the legal registration system. There are 20 registered rooming houses in Hobsons Bay and 50 in Maribyrnong, and double that number are believed to be operating illegally. Tenants Union of Victoria chief executive Mark O’Brien said a new statewide tenancy assistance and advocacy program would replace the outreach program. “This specialist service for a highly

Concerns have been raised in state Parliament about increased traffic from the impending removal of Kororoit Creek Road level crossings at North Williamstown station and outside the nearby Mobil refinery. Western Metropolitan Liberal MP Bernie Finn has asked if the state government would “publish all data on the effects on traffic volumes of the grade separations, particularly in light of traffic projections for the West Gate Tunnel project”. Mr Finn said Williamstown residents were concerned “that the removal of these level crossings will simply draw more traffic through Williamstown and make it a more attractive route, especially given the increasing truck traffic predicted for nearby roads”. Public Transport Minister Jacinta Allan said removing the two “dangerous” level crossings would “significantly increase safety and better protect all members of the Williamstown community”. “The Kororoit Creek Road level crossing removal project also is partially duplicating the Altona Loop, improving the reliability of train services in Melbourne’s west,” she said. Williamstown MP Wade Noonan said separating the road and rail line at Ferguson Street/Kororoit Creek Road would “keep the hundreds of school children who use this crossing each week safe”.

said the old program had been delivered out of just two metropolitan locations. “This new program goes much further by engaging 13 community-based agencies across the state to reach tenants who need help – including many rooming-house residents outside of Melbourne,” she said.

New start for homeless families By Stella Tzobanakis

When the fear recedes For almost nine months, “Jackie” and her two young boys did not have a place to call home. The then 29-year-old mother and her children, aged nine and 10, found themselves homeless after family violence forced them to flee their one-time home. “At the time, I was studying full-time and looking after the kids at the same time and basically, it was about safety,” “Jackie” (not her real name) said. “We had to go. It was with a very heavy heart that I made the decision after living in the family home for 30 years, but it had to be done.” What followed were short stays in temporary housing and days on end of uncertainty. “It’s scary,” she said. “All you want is safety and security, and so you live in hope. “That’s what I did – I lived in hope, but I wasn’t sure something [permanent housing] was going to happen.” After nine months of homelessness, Jackie received a life-changing call from the United Housing Co-operative in Yarraville. She was told there was a long-term rental property available for her and her boys. “Jackie” said it was the greatest call she could receive. “It’s so great,” she said. “It’s secure. We’re able to get back to structure, routine and rebuilding our lives. “We’re able to wake up safe and with freedoms we never had. It’s just something that we haven’t felt for a long time. “I have no words really to describe the feeling to be honest,” she said. “No words at all.”

Eight homeless women and their children will now call Maribyrnong and Hobsons Bay home. The families are moving into eight homes in the inner-western suburbs this month after the United Housing Co-operative in Yarraville purchased and finalised tenancy arrangements for them. The co-operative received a $3.54 million state government grant as part of the rapid housing program to secure rental accommodation for the families. The eight families, which include 21 children, were either in short-term shelter, temporary housing or had no fixed address after escaping domestic violence. United Housing Co-operative manager Peter Sibly said the families would be renting long-term community housing. “Secure and affordable housing has provided these families with the opportunity to re-build their lives and the lives of their children without which they would have been under serious threat,” Mr Sibly said. “They have been enabled to return their children to permanent schooling, establish some level of personal security, re-establish networks, commence training and education, and prepare for future employment.” Mr Sibly said 68 families had applied for the eight homes. “Many families not housed are living with friends or family or are in emergency housing until they are properly housed, which can take up to three years,” Mr Sibly said. The other 60 applicants remain on housing waiting lists.

As Williamstown Hospital launches the final stage of its Heart of Williamstown appeal to fund a $2.2 million upgrade, we celebrate the big-hearted widow who contributed more than $800,000. Dorothy Ethel Gilmore died on July 10, 2013, aged 93. She left 13 bequests totalling $60,000 and more than $800,000 each to the hospital and Cancer Council Victoria. Mrs Gilmore had no children and neither she nor her late husband, Patrick, had any known surviving siblings. She spent the last 20 years of her life being treated at Williamstown Hospital for a range of health issues. She had appointed one of her nephews, Paul Jensen, as executor. Mr Jensen said his aunty’s connection to Williamstown Hospital dated back many years. Her grandfather, Jens Christian Jensen, had jumped ship from a Norwegian freighter and married a nursing sister from the hospital. Mrs Gilmore was born in Cecil Street, Williamstown, and lived there until she married Patrick in 1948, after which the couple moved to Payne Street, Newport. They ran a very successful green grocery business in Barkly Street, West Footscray. Through that enterprise, they supported Mrs Gilmore’s sister, Margaret, in taking on a milk bar and grocery on the corner of Payne Street and Alma Terrace, Newport. They also owned many properties in Williamstown over the years. Mr Jensen said his aunty – one of nine siblings, most of whom were born at Williamstown Hospital – left more than $800,000 in her will

VicRoads offloads land By Goya Dmytryshchak A premium Williamstown development site that has been in the hands of VicRoads since the 1970s is up for sale. The 2435-square-metre corner landholding at 9-27 Kororoit Creek Road is listed for sale by Savills. But Williamstown residents are concerned the site is being sold on the cusp of a major redevelopment of North Williamstown railway station which is across the road. The level crossing will be removed, but the design of the grade separation is unknown.

Resident Cliff Elliott said it was unfair to sell the land for a development when future residents could be staring at an “ugly overpass”. “Us people here are up in arms about them selling it now because they’re probably going to put an overpass in there … they shouldn’t be selling public land until they finish the job,” he said. “It’s a bit contentious – you buy a block of land and they’re going to start doing an overpass at the station 50 yards away, and people might have a big eyesore in front of their house.” VicRoads regional director Vince Punaro said the Hobsons Bay council and the Level Crossing Removal Authority had advised that they did not require the land. “VicRoads acquired the [site] … in the 1970s and 1980s for the purposes of widening the road,” he said. “This was subsequently abandoned due to widening on the northern

Lawyer guilty of laundering cash By Tammy Mills A Williamstown solicitor has been found guilty of laundering dirty money allegedly given to him by a man accused of playing a part in the 1994 Richmond Armaguard robbery. John Anile’s barrister Peter Billings said it would be a “miracle” if his client ever practised law again after a jury found 58-year-old Anile guilty of money laundering and obtaining financial advantage by deception. Anile appeared in the Melbourne County Court on Friday for a plea hearing at which the court was told he laundered $400,000 allegedly given to him by former kickboxing champion Pasquale ‘Percy’ Lanciana in 1994. The case against Anile was part of Operation Tideland, a taskforce that investigated an organised crime syndicate responsible for serious crimes, including the 1994 Richmond heist, when syndicate members allegedly dressed as road workers to hold up an Armaguard truck and steal $2.4 million. Lanciana was charged with the Richmond robbery last year. He is contesting the accusations at a committal hearing in October. The prosecution in Anile’s case did not specify the laundered money came from the heist, stating instead that the cash came from a serious offence and Anile knew it was dirty. “That alone makes it a very serious offence and it calls for an immediate custodial sentence,” prosecutor Matt Fisher said. According to court documents, Anile was caught in a covert recording in 2013 saying to a witness: “I know exactly where the f---ing

money came from. I will never tell you where the money came from. You can put a gun to my head and I will never tell you. All I can tell you is that the $400,000 cash was a small proportion of it.” In another meeting, the witness speculated the money came from a train robbery, to which Anile replies: “You don’t have to be a genius. They had a bunch of cash and they did not work.” He went on to say: “Whatever it was, whether it was stand-overs or robberies, whatever it was, it wasn’t drugs”. Anile had pleaded not guilty to laundering the money and deception. Police said he bought a vacant lot in Williamstown using $400,000 of “under the table” cash and avoiding stamp duty and taxes by underquoting the sale. Mr Billings told the court his client had an unblemished record before and since, but his reputation was now lost and he had suffered substantial hardship. He said the Legal Services Commissioner had taken over Anile’s firm and he will have to hand in his practising certificate. “Unless a miracle occurs, he’ll never practise law again,” Mr Billings said. He said Anile had suffered an “enduring campaign” from the press, where it was alleged the money came from the Richmond Armaguard heist. “That’s not the basis of the prosecution case,” Mr Billings said. He asked Judge Phillip Coish to take into account his client’s remorse and likelihood he wouldn’t reoffend. Anile will be sentenced on Friday.

Bonnie’s paws turned blue. (Supplied)

Weedkiller a paw result Hobsons Bay council has reviewed its use of weed killer after a dog’s paws turned blue in an off-leash dog park in Williamstown. Julie-Anne Williams said that when she took her cavalier King Charles spaniel, Bonnie, to Cyril Curtain Reserve on Monday last week, her dog’s paws “suddenly turned blue”. She immediately suspected weedkiller and rang the council, which ordered spraying be stopped immediately. “They shouldn’t be spraying it close to the water, and they need to put up adequate signage and look at other ways to kill the weeds,” she said. “It makes me concerned that other people that are walking in that dog park don’t know that the area has been sprayed.

“There were actually a lot of people walking their dogs that day – and a few people, their dogs had blue feet as well.” The council confirmed Bonnie’s paws had been affected by a mixture of dye and weedkiller. Infrastructure and city services director Bill Millard said: “We are aware that a small dog ran through an area that had been sprayed earlier that morning and that is regrettable. “We’ve … undertaken a further review of our procedures to avoid this happening again and have decided to increase our signage, treat smaller areas at a time and reduce spraying nearby to off-leash areas.” Goya Dmytryshchak

MY PLACE Anton Horvat breathes, eats and almost sleeps Yarraville, despite living in Altona Meadows. He reveals the reasons to Stella Tzobanakis. Why do you feel so much more connected to Yarraville given you have been there only two years and in Altona Meadows 16 years? Since buying a small business in Yarraville, I tend to spend most of my time in Yarraville Village and I am more connected with Yarraville. What do you love about Yarraville? The sense of community and the diverse mix of people that come to my shop. Everyone is so friendly and I love to see the kids and babies that come in. What’s your least favourite thing about Yarraville? It’s always the traffic on the freeway. In Yarraville itself, there’s nothing I don’t like. What’s your favourite place to visit in the western suburbs and why? My favourite place is near my home. I love to visit Point Cook Homestead. I just love the peace and quiet.

If you could change one thing about Yarraville, what would it be? Tough question if one is to be realistic. So being realistic, there’s probably not much to change except I’d like to see a lot more sustainability actions implemented.

This property’s location and its large block size are clear drawcards, whether for a developer or a young family with a view to renovate. The triple-gabled weatherboard opens to a cosy hall where three bedrooms are off to the right. All three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes, two are carpeted and the main

Custom cabinetry has also been installed here, creating good storage. Across the hall is the kitchen and family-meals area. The kitchen has hardwood cabinetry, a brand-new Blanco oven and a six-burner gas cooktop. A servery window from the kitchen opens to a large extension which includes a rumpus room (that takes almost the whole

width of the house), powder room and laundry. Beyond the meals area there is a cosy living area which gets plenty of natural light. The block, of about 650 square metres, allows plenty of room for a big backyard. There’s a paved dining area with shade sails directly off the back of the house and several mature trees. A backyard studio with power and a small deck out the front is a fantastic addition. The lock-up double garage leads to off-street parking for two more cars.

Located within walking distance of Altona Gate Shopping Centre, St Leo’s Catholic Primary School plus Altona North Primary School, it’s a great central location for young families. The bus on Millers Road takes you to the city, the bus to Newport Station passes by the house. So whether you preserve the facade and renovate, develop or live in and update over time, the location and opportunity this little Aussie gem represents cannot be disputed. Samantha Freestone

PLEASE HELP TRANSFORM OUR LOCAL HOSPITAL. THE TIME IS NOW.

A special appeal for The Williamstown Hospital


STAR WEEKLY SPECIAL LIFTOUT

1

The Western Health Foundation is conducting a fundraising appeal to transform Williamstown Hospital. To date just over $2m has been raised from The Heart of Williamstown Appeal. Our target is $2.2m. Our vision is to create a state-of-the art healthcare hub in the heart of Victoria’s oldest community hospital.

2

While providing 21st century healthcare, Williamstown has ageing infrastructure that doesn’t allow for the open, community wellness spaces and design features that most modern hospitals offer - elements that have been proven to improve patient care.

3

We are seeking the involvement of local businesses and residents in Melbourne’s west to support this important community project.

Doug Mill Director of Nursing

Director of Nursing dedicated to Williamstown Doug Mill has worked at some of Melbourne’s biggest metropolitan hospitals throughout his 36 year healthcare career. But it’s the small community hospital of Williamstown that has captured his heart. Doug has spent the past decade overseeing the day-to-day running of Williamstown Hospital in the Director of Nursing role. He has led some big changes during that time in helping Williamstown Hospital consolidate its position as the key subacute provider for Western Health, boost the number of operating suites and vastly increase elective surgery numbers. “The key to successfully implementing the changes has been the ‘can do’ attitude of the staff,” Doug says. “The staff are committed to providing the best care they can for our patients and they love working at the hospital.” On any given day, close to 300 staff work across the hospital. It provides a range of services including emergency care, surgical, rehabilitation, geriatric evaluation and management, renal dialysis, along with community rehabilitation and transition care services. “You can’t beat the services and care we provide here at Williamstown. The problem is, we lack the social areas required for patients, visitors and staff to connect,” Doug says. “Social spaces are an important feature of modern hospitals because they give patients somewhere to interact with others and for our rehab patients to be able to move around freely. “This upgrade is based around providing a better environment for our patients to assist with their recovery and to help them to go home as well as possible.”

Our facilities Our patient care facilities include: Wards

Surgical Ward 29 beds

Medical Ward

30 beds

GEM Ward

Dialysis Centre

The hon. Steve Bracks AC Proud Heart of Williamstown Appeal Patron the hon. Steve Bracks launched The Heart of Williamstown Hospital appeal in March 2016, focused on updating the ageing facility and creating a new look for the much-loved part of Williamstown’s community. The Appeal commenced with a very generous bequest of over $800,000 from the estate of Dorothy Ethel Gilmore in July 2013 who, with no children of her own, decided to donate part of her estate to the hospital. After becoming a dear member of the extended part of the Williamstown Hospital community due to ill health in the later years of her life, she will always be remembered fondly by staff at the hospital. With Steve Bracks at the forefront and with local businessman George Kallifidas rallying the troops, the appeal quickly gathered momentum, the community banding together to raise the $2.2 million needed. As part of the vision, a new reception area and entry, outdoor patient waiting area, a visitor lounge, the New East courtyard and Heath Hub building will be created. The biggest change to the hospital, however, will be a large rehabilitation and courtyard area, located in the ‘heart’ of the hospital, hence the name of the appeal. Patron Steve Bracks says unlike most hospitals, Williamstown Hospital lacks outdoor spaces for patients and visitors. “There will be courtyards and gardens, especially important for patient rehabilitation and exercise,” he says. The large open-plan building will blend indoors and outdoors with green spaces, community art, and a cafe with attractive areas for patients and families to enjoy.

A special appeal for The Williamstown Hospital.

$200,000 still needed Steve says he joined forces with a small group of “committed folk” to transform the hospital into a modern and vibrant centre for healthcare. But The Heart of Williamstown Appeal is still short of its target. “Today we are close to our goal. We have raised over two million dollars and need another $200,000 to complete our vision. “Terry (Steve’s partner) and I along with many friends and neighbours have already made our donation to this very special community appeal. “Now we ask you to join us in supporting our hospital. Every gift will help and we are so close to our target. “This is the last push to get the project over the line so we can commence building works. “This appeal is really to look at what other contributions we can make to make it even better, and to look at the integration of the whole hospital with a better facade and better presentation. I’m pleased to be part of the appeal.”

A team effort The funds raised so far couldn’t have been achieved without the generous help of the wider community. The Williamstown Hospital Opportunity Shop on Ferguson Street alone has also been a big contributor to the Appeal. Last year the volunteers in the Op Shop raised close to $165,000 for the Appeal. A spokesperson for The Heart of Williamstown Appeal says there have been so many generous contributions to the cause. “Particularly, a few business people have really made a concerted effort to push the drive along and we are extremely thankful for their support,” she says.

Williamstown Hospital was first opened over 120 years ago. Today the 110 bed hospital provides vital healthcare services to both its local communities and to the west of Melbourne. The Emergency Department sees more than 20,000 people a year. With a new theatre complex, Williamstown Hospital is now the elective surgery centre for Western Health. More than 6,000 surgeries are performed each year, including orthopaedics, urology, plastics, gastro intestinal, breast, bowel and prostate cancer. Western Health manages Sunshine Hospital, Footscray Hospital, Sunbury Day Hospital, Hazeldean Transition Care Program, Western Centre for Health Research and Education (WCHRE) and the Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s Hospital making it well connected to meet all the needs of the community. Steve says he and his family have used the hospital many times when the children were younger. “Just ask any mum or dad about our Emergency Department and they will tell you the care is fantastic. “It also has a surgery department that is as good as any other hospital, with Melbourne’s best surgeons, and the latest technology. “It is big enough to handle most of your health needs and small enough to feel like family …. and it’s part of a wider hospital network to deal with larger medical needs,” he says. “Today, Williamstown has none of these facilities. Our special Appeal will put a new heart into Williamstown Hospital.” To donate to the Heart of Williamstown Appeal, visit www.williamstownappeal.com

A big thank you to our supporters At the heart of every community hospital is its people. Williamstown Hospital boasts the longest connection to its community of any suburban hospital in Victoria since it was built in 1894. Here, some of the major supporters of the Heart of Williamstown Appeal share why they are so passionate about their local hospital.

Devesh Mishra

Williamstown businessman Devesh Mishra is a strong believer in giving back to his local community.

“We’ve met a lot of good people in Williamstown who have made it feel like home.

following in the footsteps of his father, mother and

Born in Fiji, Devesh was taught the power of charitable giving from a young age.

“By giving to the hospital, it will benefit many of those who live in the community and have made us feel so welcome,” he says.

Deveshwar is just as passionate as his parents in supporting the Heart of Williamstown Appeal.

Devesh, who moved to Sydney in 1980 and then to Melbourne with his young family in 2009, says his father, who was also a businessman, always gave back to their local village to help others. “It’s a big part of our family’s values and beliefs.

Devesh is the largest contributor to the Heart of Williamstown Appeal so far.

“Williamstown is continually growing and improving and we want to help out, to make sure that continues,” he says.

And it seems the family’s generosity will continue for many years to come, with Devesh’s son Deveshwar

“It’s such a close community and the hospital is an important part of that.”

grandchildren are sixth generation Williamstown residents, so the community means a lot to me and my family,” he says.

Ray is calling on his fellow Williamstown residents to support the Heart of Williamstown Appeal.

Ray Horsburgh Ray Horsburgh knows first-hand the vital role Williamstown Hospital plays in caring for local residents. Ray had his tonsils removed there as a young boy, witnessed the birth of three of his children at the hospital and sadly the passing of his beloved mother. So when he was asked to help form the Heart of Williamstown Appeal Committee last year, he was honoured to do so. “I’m a life-long resident of Williamstown and my

“Even though my mother died there, I have fond memories of visiting her. “The hospital has always been very community focussed, thanks to the volunteers who assist and the friendly staff who work there. I’m proud to say it’s my local hospital.”

“This appeal gives people the chance to dig deep to ensure we have vital healthcare services on our doorstep well into the future,” he said. “It will give the hospital a modern look and feel, while still keeping the integrity of the old hospital. “It’s a chance to give back to our hospital.”

George Kallifidas When George Kallifidas invited friends over for dinner recently, little did he know the drama that would ensue. “My friend cut his hand on glass and we knew straight away it needed to be seen to,” George says. “We took him to the Williamstown Emergency Department, he was taken straight in to be stitched up and we were home in time for dinner to be served. “The care they provide at Williamstown is just fantastic. It made the situation less stressful.”

George has been cared for at Williamstown Hospital numerous times - from a broken toe to a knee reconstruction. So when the opportunity arose to make a significant contribution to the Heart of Williamstown Appeal, George didn’t hesitate. “My father was also cared for at the hospital when he was battling cancer, so it’s a place that is very close to my heart,” he said. “It’s comforting to know that we have such a great

hospital in our backyard, and I think it’s important to ensure it stays that way for generations to come.” As the owner of North Williamstown Motor Bodyworks, George said it is also reassuring to have such a high quality healthcare service in the community for his staff to access. George has been a driving force behind the Heart of Williamstown Appeal, encouraging fellow business owners and community leaders to support their local hospital.

Jenny and her family have a number of businesses based in Melbourne’s west and have a proud history of giving back to the local community – particularly to the hospitals in the west.

a third generation Williamstown resident and was born at the hospital, so being able to support the Appeal and give something back to our community is very important to us.

Jenny was one of the key supporters in redeveloping the Sunshine Hospital Children’s Ward in 2013 and she has been a driving force on the Heart of Williamstown Appeal Committee over the past 18 months.

“The hospital needs some TLC and with the help of local businesses and residents, we can give it the upgrade it needs and put in place the community spaces that patients need to help them in their recovery and for families to spend time in when visiting their loved ones.”

Jenny Sadler As the mother of three children, Jenny Sadler knows the importance of having high quality healthcare close by. When her 7-year-old daughter broke her arm, Jenny had no hesitation in rushing her to the Williamstown Emergency Department. “It is more than just a convenience, it’s a necessity to have a good hospital nearby when you have young children,” Jenny says.

“I’ve lived in Williamstown for 14 years, my husband is

“I’ve been in business in the area for 30 years and I try to set an example by giving back to the community,” he says. Along with contributing to the Appeal, Wayne joined

“Our community is changing all of the time, so it makes it all the more important to ensure the hospital can meet the growing needs of the community.” Wayne and his family have used the hospital on numerous occasions.

His daughter was taken to the Williamstown Emergency Department after hitting her head on a brick wall, while Wayne also needed medical attention after a nasty fall while out jogging. “My daughter, wife and parents have used the hospital and the care has always been fantastic. “This upgrade will mean the facilities match the outstanding care provided at the hospital.”

This ever popular style of home makes perfect sense for retirees who relish an individual dwelling complete with all the amenities of a larger home including a garage and garden but on a more manageable scale.

DEAR heart of Jesus, in the past I have asked for many favours. This time I ask you, this very special one (mentioned favour). Take it, the dear heart of Jesus, and place it with your own broken heart, where your father sees it. Then in his merciful eyes, it will become your favour, not mine. Amen.

FOOD REVIEW STARWEEKLY.COM.AU

CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir honours a western suburbs pioneer Those of us who love Indian food owe the Dosa Hut crew a big vote of thanks. As far as I am aware, they were the very first to bring dosas to Melbourne’s western suburbs. These days, there are five Dosa Hut branches across Melbourne. But the change that first shop in West Footscray helped initiate extends well beyond dosas and extra branches. It’s taken the best part of a decade, but in that time Indian eating-out in Melbourne has changed dramatically. Not just dosas, but also the likes of idlis and vadas have become common. And it’s not just about those dishes, mostly associated with South Indian food – now Dosa Hut, and their many competitors, do Indo-Chinese, biryanis and sometimes even thalis. I still eat at the original Dosa Hut on occasion – and was definitely interested in trying out their Ramadan specials. These include the grain/pulse/meat dish that is haleem, of which I am not a fan, and a couple of biryanis – lamb shank and “gutti vankaya dum biryani” (eggplant biryani). My eggplant biryani ($13.95) appears at my table looking pretty much like any other biryani. Rice, gravy, raita – but no hardboiled egg. What sets this aside from the norm is that hidden in my rice are to be found two fat, rotund, tender and very tasty eggplants. This dish makes for a nice change from my

DOSA HUT Address: 604 Barkly Street, West Footscray Phone: 8592 4900 DOSA CORNER Address: 587 Barkly Street, West Footscray Phone: 8528 5120 usual biryani order of chicken or lamb, though it is of rather high spiciness. Right across the road at Dosa Corner, they’re also doing haleem for Ramadan. And another dish I am most eager to try – paya ($9.99, roti $2 each). This is a soup/stew made with sheep trotters. There’s not a lot of meat involved, but the flavour is of immense meatiness, along with being tangy and having a nice chilli burn going on. The couple of pieces of sheep trotter? Well, no, not a lot of meat; but, yes, a whole bunch of gelatinous matter. Not, in other words, a cup of tea for everyone, but personally, I love it as something different and delicious. And I reckon anyone with a fondness for equally fiddly and bony chicken feet will feel the same.

SPORT Altona Magic moves away from the pack The Glory remains a little too close for comfort to the relegation zone, just four points clear of second-last Altona East Phoenix. Altona City continues to deliver the goods in men’s state league 2, but remains a point behind top side Hoppers Crossing. City thrashed Essendon United 5-0 at Kim Reserve on Saturday night, with Ayodeji Omoboye leading the way with a double. City is on a three-game winning streak, in which it has scored 16 goals and conceded one. Williamstown regained its touch in a 3-0 win over second-placed Whittlesea United at Thomas Street Reserve. Bobby Lojanica was the talk of the Blues after firing in a double. The Blues are suddenly back in the promotion hunt after that massive road win. Melbourne City faces a near impossible task to survive in the division with just one point from 13 games. City was dismantled 5-0 by Epping City away at Duffy Street Reserve.

Altona North has continued its rise up the men’s state league 4 ladder with a third win in four games. North knocked off third-placed Bell Park 1-0 at Duane Reserve. Laverton Park was a comfortable 4-1 winner over Spring Hills in the men’s state league 5 top-of-the-ladder clash, while Maribyrnong Greens beat Maidstone United 2-0 in the derby at Scovell Reserve. In women’s state league 2, Maribyrnong Swifts upset ladder leader South Melbourne 2-1 at Johnson Reserve, after goals to Elena Pereyra and Alana Dargham. The Swifts are now just three points off the summit. Yarraville Glory had a resounding 3-0 win over La Trobe University after Sarah Lovett scored a double. Maidstone United beat Watsonia Heights by the same scoreline after a double to Linda Marchetti. Lance Jenkinson

Survival plan kicks in By Lance Jenkinson Altona East Phoenix might have found a turning point in a bleak Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 1 season. The relegation-threatened Phoenix had a rare chance to smile on Saturday after a 2-1 win over Keilor Park at Paisley Park. It was just a continuation of a week of good vibes for the Phoenix, following the signing of former Socceroo Alan Davidson as coach for the remainder of the season. “It was a big week,” Phoenix president Jim Dimitriou said. “He only trained the boys for the first time on Thursday night, didn’t have much time to prepare, but he put a team together and we won. “We’re still under the pump, but it hopefully sets us up to start to get ourselves out of the relegation zone.” Last Thursday, Altona East sat rock bottom on the ladder, three points clear in that dreaded spot. Changes needed to occur, or the Phoenix would have likely faced an inevitable demotion. Davidson, a long-time friend of Dimitriou’s, answered the call. The 57-year-old has a soccer resume second to none: capped 79 times for the Socceroos, a professional with Nottingham Forest in the UK and Pahang in Malaysia and a former NSL player. He has the added benefit of understanding the area, having grown up in it, and a knowledge of how the Phoenix operates, though his close association with the club. Davidson was initially jumping on board as a coaching adviser to Allen Vella, but Vella pulled out and handed the keys to Davidson. “Initially, it was going to be them working together, but Allen said, ‘I haven’t been able to get the job done, I’ll just walk away and see if Alan can help the club out’, which was good of him,” Dimitriou said. “It’s still going to be tough, but we’ve just told Alan all we need is survival. To his credit, he jumped in with one night’s training and he’s committed to helping us get out of relegation.” Davidson commands respect and the Altona East players were all ears this week. The Phoenix responded with their best performance of the season, winning on the back of goals to Anthony Giannopoulos and Julian Cassano. “On Thursday night, he really got into the guys [about turning the season around],” Dimitriou said. “There wasn’t one guy that said anything back to him because of who he is. “You can’t talk back to him when he’s played professionally, he’s played in England, he’s played in Malaysia, he’s played 70-odd games for Australia, so you’ve got to listen to what he’s telling you and trust in him.

IN THE DOGHOUSE Sad to see the state of the old Yarraville Oval grandstand after some idiots set fire to it a few weeks ago. The fire is regarded as suspicious as grandstands don’t usually just burst into flames in the middle of the night. The combination of the fire and water damage is making life difficult for the Yarraville Seddon Eagles football club. Training and match days have been thrown into chaos, with the senior club relocating two home games, which will have some pretty big financial repercussions. Home game revenue is the lifeblood of local clubs. Yarraville will play North Footscray this Saturday at McLean Reserve Spotswood, a drop punt from Yarraville Oval – very convenient for players and supporters.

It is a time of year that many footy clubs decide the fate of their coaches. Manor Lakes has re-signed Aaron Bradley and his assistants Rob May and Tazzie Peterswood – a good move as the Storm will play finals this year and have really improved under Bradley. Albion coach Chris O’Keefe is locked in for 2018 with the Cats, who are still a chance of playing finals. Coaching local footy is incredibly demanding and does not come with the financial benefits of the elite level, nor the support team, but in terms of time and commitment there is not much difference. AFL coaches don’t have to deal with players missing games or training through work, overseas holidays, weddings, bowls tournaments, umpiring duties and a dozen other reasons. It’s a job you have to love.

It was great to hear Williamstown legend, premiership player and Liston Trophy winner Saade Ghazi, now coach of Altona, talk about the changing face of local football on the WRFL Footy in the West program last Friday. He believes it is time clubs put their foot down and stop offering players contracts if they can not commit to a full season and have plans to take off overseas for five or six weeks. We all know it is park footy, but when you are paying good money, as is the case these days, you should expect commitment to reflect the dollars. The points system and salary cap will only do so much to ensure competitiveness and viability of clubs. At the end of the day it all starts with the clubs, they set the agenda for everything and the sooner they take back control the better.

Altona East Phoenix goal scorer Anthony Giannopoulos goes up for the header against Keilor Park’s Ryan Filipovic. (Marco De Luca)

“If you do what he tells you, more likely you’re going to win.” The changes at Altona East will not stop with Davidson’s appointment. The Phoenix plans to use every second of the transfer window to bolster their line-up and you can bet the playing style will be tinkered with over time.

The honeymoon period has been fun for Davidson and the Phoenix, but can they make it last another week against title favourites and local rivals Altona Magic when they meet at Paisley Park on Saturday afternoon? “We’re not just going to roll over,” Dimitriou said. “We’re going to go out and fight and you never know.”

It could be the six pack that busts open the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 1 title race once and for all. Altona Magic moved eight points clear at the top of the ladder with a 6-0 annihilation of North Sunshine Eagles at Larissa Reserve on Saturday. That prompted some to ask: Who is going to catch the Magic now? The Magic led 1-0 at half-time, but piled on an incredible five unanswered goals after the break. The Magic goals were spread around, with Jon McShane, Melvin Becket, Adamson Ajayi, Kliment Dimitrieski, Jason Hayne and Nikola Markovski getting on the scoreboard. The Magic goes into Saturday’s clash with Paisley Park co-tenant Altona East Phoenix on the back of a four-game winning streak. Yarraville Glory’s form reversal was fleeting as it was beaten 3-0 by Geelong at Stead Park.

Bulldogs on the rise with win over Tigers Footscray has moved back into the VFL top four after a 24-point win over Werribee Tigers at the Victoria University Whitten Oval on Saturday. The Bulldogs have enjoyed the two meetings against their western suburbs foes this season, beating them comprehensively in round two and repeating the dose seven weeks later. It is no mean feat for the Bulldogs to complete the double against Werribee, who entered Saturday’s game on the back of a six-game winning streak. Footscray opened up an eight-point break at quarter-time and managed to extend the lead at every change. Anthony Bruhn had a day out in the Bulldogs forward line with four goals, but it was the Dogs defence, led by Kieran Collins, Matthew Boyd and Fletcher Roberts, that stifled the Tigers attack. Footscray, last year’s premiers, are just a

game and a half off the summit after the three teams above them on the ladder all got beaten in a round of upsets. The Bulldogs will face third-last Collingwood next up at Victoria Park on Sunday at 11.45am.

The Magpies take good form into the game, having upset second-placed Port Melbourne last start. In the women’s VFL, VU Western Spurs have been dumped from top spot after losing to second-placed Diamond Creek by 23 points at Plenty War Memorial Park. The Spurs were on the back foot all day after conceding four-goals-to-one in the opening term. They never gave up, closing to within two goals at three-quarter time, but they ran out of petrol in the last term. Harriet Cordner was best-on-ground for the Spurs, while Alyssa Mifsud and Jessica Francke snared two goals apiece. The third-placed Spurs will host lowly Cranbourne at Henry Turner Reserve on Saturday. Lance Jenkinson

Jets crash in second half Western Jets were obliterated by the Dandenong Stingrays in the second half of their TAC Cup clash at Burbank Oval on Sunday. The sides went into half-time inseparable on 27 apiece, but the Stingrays turned it on in the second half with a 13-goal-to-one blitz, running out winners 16.16 (112) - 5.6 (36). Stefan Radovanovic continued his stellar form for the Jets with a second best-on-ground for his side in three weeks. Radovanovic, a bottom-age player out of Keilor, has been in the Jets best in six of his eight games and managed to do so on limited preparation, having missed the pre-season with injury. Others to impress for the Jets included co-captain Nick Stuhldreier, Josh Mould, Xavier O’Halloran, Riley Ham and Tristan Xerri. The Jets have fallen to the bottom of the TAC Cup ladder. They will not get a chance to rectify their situation until July 9 when they host the Murray Bushrangers at Burbank Oval. Meanwhile, Western Jets stars Cameron Rayner and Lachlan Fogarty featured in Vic Metro’s 22-point win over Vic Country in the latest round of the NAB AFL under-18 national championships on Saturday. Rayner caught the eye with three goals, prompting the draft experts to ponder his validity as a potential high first round draft pick at this year’s national draft. Fogarty hit the scoreboard with two goals, while getting plenty of touches in the midfield and applying good defensive pressure. Vic Metro takes on South Australia at Etihad Stadium on Friday at 4.40pm. Lance Jenkinson

Seagulls’ midfield blues By Lance Jenkinson You do not say this often about Williamstown’s midfield, but was it fighting out of its class against Essendon in the VFL at Windy Hill on Saturday? The Seagulls onball division is one of the most feared in the VFL, but it had to face a Bombers centreline that included ruckman Matthew Leuenberger, Brent Stanton, David Myers, Heath Hocking and Darcy Parish – a combination that would fit seamlessly into most AFL starting line-ups. Williamstown would never back away from a challenge – they thrive on a standalone team versus professionals storyline – but it was perhaps biting off a bit more than it could chew against the Bombers on this day. Seagulls coach Andrew Collins pointed to the clearance battle lost as the key factor in a 15-point loss. “It was a really good challenge for us to play against an Essendon line-up which consisted of 18 AFL boys,” Collins said. “I thought they were terrific against us [at the stoppages], a lot more cleaner and a lot more precise than we were.

“We were down 10 clearances for the game and that’s normally one of our No. 1 areas. “That area was the most disappointing area of the game for us.” Williamstown’s hurt stemming from the loss was two-fold. Not only did the Seagulls’ six-game winning streak come to a halt, but it left a sour taste in the mouths of Ayce Cordy, Sam Dunell and Peter Faulks, who played their 100th VFL games on the day. Collins was full of praise for the trio, who have come back to the VFL from stints in the AFL to become strong players and leaders for Williamstown. “It was a big occasion for all three of them, so it’s disappointing not to share success with them for their milestone games,” he said. “On Thursday night I thanked them for coming back into the VFL and being such good role models. A lot of players take an easier option, what I’d call an easier pay cheque at local footy, but these guys continue to challenge themselves against AFL-listed players in the best competition outside the AFL and that’s a positive reflection of their characters.

“They could get paid more money playing local footy, it could be easier for them, but they want to be challenged against AFL-listed players and what great role models all three of them are to our younger players.” Forward Lachlan Schultz could be on his way to a long VFL career – or even higher. Schultz kicked four goals and was the Seagulls best player in an eye-catching performance. “He’s a very exciting prospect,” Collins said. “He’s highly aggressive, he’s got great pace and he plays very tall for a small forward. “I’m sure there were AFL recruiters there looking at him and going ‘wow, this kid has got a lot of potential’.” Tall defender David Fahey was good in one-on-one contests and offered drive out of the back half for Williamstown. Leigh Masters presented well and finished with two goals, while Cordy was the Gulls other multiple goalkicker with two. Williamstown goes into a bye round in second spot, just two points out of top spot. The Seagulls next game will be a blockbuster against ladder leader Box Hill Hawks at Box Hill City Oval on July 9.

Footscray has claimed its fourth win of the Hockey Victoria men’s premier league season, downing Powerhouse/St Kilda 2-1 on the road at the McKenzie Pavilion. All the scoring came in the second half with the Bulldogs finding the back of the net through Lewis Colasurdo and Nick Vlassis. In the women’s premier league, it was all one way traffic as Footscray pummelled KBH Brumbies 7-1 at Elgar Park.

Falcons fall to Lightning The votes move Stewart to second in the most valuable player race. Falcons defender Jacqui Newton sits four votes back from leader Lara Dunkley. Jovic, who missed a couple of games with an ankle injury, is a further vote back. Despite the loss, the Falcons remain fourth on the ladder, a game clear of Geelong Cougars, who also lost on Wednesday. It was a mixed night for the other two Falcons’ teams. The division 1 side had a strong 61-42 win, also against the Lightning. The Falcons led at every break. Tharjini Sivalingan shot 48 goals from 50 attempts. Soli Ropati was awarded the three votes. The under-19 side started well but couldn’t match it with the Lightning after quarter-time. The Falcons led by four goals at the first break, but could shoot only 19 goals for the rest of the match, losing 40-30. The Falcons have lost top spot, slipping behind Geelong Cougars. All three Falcons sides face ACU Sovereigns on Wednesday night.

Altona Vikings coach Saade Ghazi and his players face a tough trip to Hoppers Crossing on Saturday. (Marco De Luca)

Denby-Blake continued his stellar recent form with a best-on-ground display. Yarraville-Seddon Eagles had it all its own way in a 109-point demolition of West Footscray at Shorten Reserve. The Eagles were merciless from start to finish on a day when Matthew Taylor kicked seven goals and Jack Hargreaves added six. It sets up a mouth-watering first-versus-second clash between Yarraville-Seddon and North Footscray on Saturday. Newport Power’s tough season continued, losing to Manor Lakes by 69 points at Bryan Martyn Oval. In division 3, Laverton Magpies fell agonisingly short of a second win, beaten by North Sunshine by three points at Laverton Park. Parkside sunk to defeat for the first time this season, losing to second-placed Wyndham Suns by 41 points at Henry Turner Reserve. Braybrook fell by 34 points to Tarneit at Pennell Reserve on Saturday. It was the Bombers sixth straight loss.

Altona’s season of near misses has continued in the Western Region Football League division 1. The Vikings could not sustain an impressive start against four-peat premiers Deer Park, going down by 18 points at JK Grant Reserve on Saturday. In a similar tale to when the sides met in round one, Altona was in a strong position to win the game, but faded late. In the season opener, the Vikings held a handy eight-point lead at three-quarter time, only to be overrun in the last term. This time, the Vikings led by 16 points at half-time, which could have been more had it converted its chances in front of goal more efficiently. Again, Deer Park would come home like an out-of-control freight train, claiming the four points. The Lions kicked 11 goals to five in the second half to keep their spot on top of the ladder, leaving Altona to rue another game that got away. Brett Shiels (four goals) and Jordan Robbins (two) were the most dangerous players on the day for the Vikings. The Vikings have lost four games by single digits this season and another close loss has left them a game outside the top five in sixth. Altona will feature in another gold class game when it travels to Hoppers Crossing on Saturday. Spotswood produced a stunning last-term fightback to beat Sunshine Kangaroos by nine points at McLean Reserve. The Woodsmen looked gone for all money at three-quarter time, trailing by a massive 23 points. In modern football, a four goal margin can be pegged back in no time, and the Woodsmen managed to do so with an exhilarating six-goal-to-one final term. Spotswood is mere percentage off top spot, but that battle for first place will be up for grabs when the Woodsmen face ladder-leader Deer Park in a blockbuster at John McLeod Oval on Saturday. In division 2, North Footscray showed no signs of weakness in a 94-point drubbing of Albanvale at Hansen Reserve. The Devils piled on the pain in a 13-goal-to-one second half. Tyren Montebruno kicked four goals for the Devils, taking his season tally to 28, while Sam

City West Falcons and Melbourne University Lightning played out another thriller in the Victorian Netball League championship division – and it was Lightning that again came out on top. The rematch of last year’s grand final, won by the Lightning, was just as thrilling, with neither team able to gain a real advantage. The Falcons led by two goals at quarter-time and one at the main break. The Lightning had the better of it in the third quarter, turning the deficit into a six-goal lead. The Falcons fought back but fell short, losing 64-62 and registering their fourth loss of the season – two of those at the hands of the Lightning. Jane Cook did a mountain of work in the goal circle for the Falcons, shooting 59 goals at 90 per cent. Goal attack Stephanie Puopolo made just three attempts on goal, hitting all three shots. In all, the Falcons missed just seven attempts, but had 11 less shots than the Lightning. Mid-courter Molly Jovic was named the Falcons’ best player, awarded the one vote behind the Lightning’s Gabrielle Sinclair and Danielle Stewart.

s far as facelifts go, the updated Mazda2 is more Megan Fox than Mickey Rourke. Mazda has given its city car a blink-andyou’ll-miss-it nip-and-tuck that centres on improving its substance rather than its style, with more safety, more choice and more refinement. Exterior changes have been kept to a minimum (different trim elements and a new finish on the alloy wheels in high-grade models; side indicators move to the mirrors). But dig deeper into the specifications and you’ll find there’s more standard equipment, including automated emergency braking on every model and improved dynamics with the addition of Mazda’s G-Vectoring control, as well as a new range-topping GT variant and drive-away pricing. The range starts with the entry-level Neo at $16,990. It has a six-speed manual transmission (auto is a $2000 option on all models) with 15-inch steel wheels, cruise control, air-conditioning, push-button start, Bluetooth connectivity and rear parking sensors. It also picks up automated emergency braking and electric folding mirrors. It is powered by a less sophisticated version of the 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. All other models, from the next-level Maxx upwards, have the same engine with a higher compression ratio cylinder head. The Maxx costs $2700 more and gets 15-inch alloy wheels and a 7-inch colour multimedia display with six-speaker audio, internet radio apps, a reverse camera, rear emergency braking and digital radio. Only offered in the hatchback, the previous flagship Genki specification costs from

tested as part of its launch, the bold interior adds colour and class. In all other aspects, the 2 performs just like it always has, which is no bad thing. Like before, we love it for its dynamic fizz and all-round solid driving character. The engine might not have the low-down urgency of some of its turbo-charged European rivals,

but it revs freely, feels spritely away from the lights and achieves close to its claimed fuel consumption in everyday conditions. All in all, the Mazda remains a stylish, fun and frugal small car and is safer and better value than before.
