Plea to save giant oak By Benjamin Millar Pressure is mounting on Maribyrnong council to tighten tree protection rules after a developer was able to order the removal of a gigantic oak tree without a permit. Chainsawing of the beloved Footscray tree, planted in the late 1800s, began last Wednesday at the behest of the owner of the Hyde Street land containing its trunk, a local developer who also owns an adjacent property. The Footscray Historical Society says the tree is at least 120 years old. It has developed a canopy almost as large as three houses, spreading across five backyards and providing a safe habitat for birds and possums.

establish the significance of the tree and, if verified, should be doing all it can to save it,” she said. Maribyrnong planning services director Nigel Higgins said the tree had not been nominated as a tree of significance with the National Trust and was not native. “The private property is in an Activity Centre Zone and requires no planning approval for

removal,” he said. The council is negotiating with the property owner about opportunities to retain the tree in its partially lopped state. Neighbours have started a petition and a Facebook group and were expected to raise the matter at Tuesday night’s Maribyrnong council meeting. The property owner declined to comment.

Ms Walker is now petitioning the council to create its own significant tree register. A spokesman for Victorian Planning Minister Richard Wynne said the onus was on councils to identify which trees should be protected. That view was backed by Footscray MP Marsha Thomson. “Council should be doing all it can to 12363036-PB35-17 10057191-21

Dr Greg Moore, chair of the National Trust’s Significant Tree Committee, said the tree would have qualified for the trust’s listing in its original state, but might now fail given about a third of its canopy had been destroyed. “This tree was a spectacular oak tree,” he said. “It’s a real shame what is happening here.” Dr Moore said he had written to all Melbourne councils at least three times in the past decade imploring them to create their own significant tree registers. Neighbour Lesley Walker decried the removal of scarce greenery in an area already critically short of trees. “I heard one arborist was asked to do the job and he refused, so they asked another,” she said. Neighbour Leanne Webb said the arborist was displeased when she refused to allow him access to her property, stalling the tree’s removal. “To take something like this away beggars belief,” she said. Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria arborist James Shugg, who visited the oak tree on Friday, is upset at such “a fine specimen” being destroyed. He warns Melbourne is already losing many of its older trees and this will have a profound effect on the city’s quality of life. In Hobsons Bay, no tree with a trunk diameter more than 45 centimetres at a height of 1.5 metres from the ground can be removed without a permit. Maribyrnong has no such rule.

A modern aged care community with a warm heart Dorothy Baybrooke has been a resident at Baptcare Wyndham Lodge Community for nearly six years. She says that the people there are as warm and welcoming today as they were the day she moved in.

A supportive community After Dorothy was hospitalised for a leg injury in early 2012, she was no longer able to live at home alone. She says that the transition to living in residential aged care was smooth because of the way she was treated by everyone at Baptcare Wyndham Lodge Community. “There was a lot of support from the beginning. And not just from the staff – the other residents were also lovely.” Dorothy says that each day at Baptcare Wyndham Lodge Community is different, depending on what she feels like doing. “Most of the time I join in with the activities and games that the staff organise. Bingo, cards and bowls are my favourite. But some days I spend a bit more time in my room if I feel the need to rest. The carers always come and ask you what you want to do that day. They tell you what

activities are on and you can say yes or no, depending on how you feel.” Dorothy has another practical role at Baptcare Wyndham Lodge Community. “I walk down to the mailbox every day after lunch to pick up the mail. I’ve been doing it for years. It helps me stay fit, and keeps me out of mischief.”

Baptcare Wyndham Lodge Community features: > Light and bright shared areas > A rich and varied lifestyle and activities program

Dorothy says that one of the important benefits of living at Baptcare Wyndham Lodge Community is that there is always someone around to help her. “A few months ago, I collapsed in my room. The nurses were there right away and I was transferred to the hospital immediately.”

> A choice of tasty, healthy meals

Contemporary living spaces

> Bright and comfortable rooms with ensuite bathroom

> 24-hour nursing-led care > Allied health services, including podiatry and physiotherapy

Baptcare Wyndham Lodge Community was fully redeveloped in 2016, to cater to regional growth. Dorothy says that the new building is modern but comfortable. “It’s a beautiful place to live. There are big windows with nice views, and there’s plenty of natural light. My room is also much larger now.” The new design also helps to bring the community together. “It’s much more spacious, which makes it easier to get around and spend time with other people in some of the lovely common areas.”

Council withdraws support from tunnel project bans on Millers Road, Mason Street, Kororoit Creek Road (east of Millers Road), North Road and High Street. The council voted to write to all state MPs advising them of the many issues with the project and urging them to either oppose the project completely or ensure that Hobsons Bay council’s recommendations are implemented. “If we wait much longer it will be too late because a decision will be made,” Cr Briffa said. “We have never, well, I certainly have never, supported the West Gate Tunnel/Maribyrnong bypass.

Other council recommendations include upgrading Grieve Parade as the preferred truck route (via Princes Highway) to access the West Gate Freeway and a “shadow toll/availability charge”, as implemented on the Peninsula Link, to mitigate toll avoidance. The council also wants separation of residential and freight traffic, particularly at Millers Road between the West Gate Freeway and Geelong Road, and the reopening of the train station at Altona North.

“There’s so many faults with it. “You have to remember this is a political fix – it’s not an engineering fix – this whole West Gate Tunnel/Maribyrnong bypass nonsense.” The council will seek support from other western suburbs councils and advocacy group LeadWest to lobby the state government to implement Hobsons Bay’s recommendations. “It’s disgusting how much money and resources they have put toward social media in pushing the barrow of this horrible project and it is a disgrace,” Cr Briffa said.

Altona courts expansion By Goya Dmytryshchak

Fifteen drunk or drug-affected drivers were detected in a police blitz in Hobsons Bay on Friday night as part of Operation Fortified. Three booze buses and two roaming patrol units were used to test 3414 motorists from 5.30pm to midnight. An 18-year-old P-plate driver from New South Wales was among three people whose vehicles were impounded. Sergeant Adam Wojcik, of Altona North police, said he was conducting laser duties near Bunninsg in Altona North when he heard the speeding car approaching. The male driver, who was clocked at 129km/h in a 60km/h zone on Millers Road, pulled over and was apologetic. Sergeant Wojcik said it was disturbing that in vehicles coming through the booze-bus line, two children not wearing seat-belts had been found. Sergeant Wojcik said it was very disappointing to detect 15 people under the influence in six and half hours. “With the warmer months approaching, we’ll be vigilant with our road policing given the number of licensed venues in Hobsons Bay and the amount of people that flock to the beach and consume alcohol,” he said. He said the majority of drink-driving offences detected were in the lower range, with two drivers blowing above 0.1 and three detected for either amphetamines or cannabis. Twenty-eight fines were issued overall for offences including mobile phone use, failing to stop at a traffic control signal, unlicensed driving and unregistered vehicles. A further six people will face court on summons for other traffic offences.

Hobsons Bay council has voted to start detailed design and development of an $18.5 million four-court extension of the Altona Sports Centre. Home to more than 30 clubs and 6000-plus registered users, the centre at HD Graham Reserve in Altona Meadows currently has six indoor basketball/netball courts and two outdoor netball courts. Mayor Angela Altair said the council would seek funding from state and federal governments and other sources, including $3 million from the state government’s better indoor stadium fund.

Not too long ago, there were 42 byes each week

- Peter Hemphill

Cr Michael Grech said the four new indoor courts would include a “show court” with retractable seating for up to 1000 spectators. “These additional four courts will also allow the centre to host state and regional tournaments,” he said. Cr Peter Hemphill said netball and basketball were two of the municipality’s fastest-growing sports, and the centre was currently running three courts short of requirements. “Not too long ago, there were 42 byes each week … that’s about 80 teams that were not getting a game,” he said. Based on registrations at the centre in 2016, 54 per cent of basketballers and 44 per cent of netballers were Hobsons Bay residents. Most remaining users came from adjoining municipalities, including 35 per cent from Wyndham and 10 per cent from Maribyrnong. Hobsons Bay has a current population provision of 11,595 people per indoor court. Basketball Victoria and Netball Victoria advise that a population provision per court of 5000 for basketball and 8000 for netball represents current best practice.

Hobsons Bay council last week voted to officially oppose the West Gate Tunnel project, expressing anger at increased freight traffic and the effect of diesel fumes on residents’ health. It represents a major shift in the council’s position from its previous conditional support. Cr Tony Briffa last week successfully moved to oppose the project because its design and construction would significantly detrimentally impact Hobsons Bay residents, and numerous council recommendations had been refused.

Labor’s Katie Hall and Melissa Horne have entered the box seat to become the new state members of Parliament for the safe seats of Footscray and Williamstown.

Hall eager to take on challenge Protecting jobs, improving infrastructure, reining in development and creating more open spaces are at the top of Katie Hall’s to-do list in the Footscray electorate. The Footscray local was last week confirmed as the Labor candidate for the 2018 state election, heading off a preselection challenge from Maribyrnong deputy mayor Sarah Carter, former councillor Michael Clarke and former prime ministerial staffer Andrew Porter. Ms Hall, 35, said she was honoured to secure the nomination in an area she is the fifth generation of her family to call home. “I’m a Footscray girl; I live here with my husband and my two-year-old daughter Matilda,” she said. “I come from a long line of people who have lived and worked and contributed to this community, and very proudly so.” Ms Hall said Footscray is a “constantly intriguing” place that is always in transition. “It’s a place where migrant communities and refugees have been able to settle in Australia and contribute to that incredible colour and diversity that we have,” she said. “I really love hearing Westside stories, I love hearing why people have come here and made this place their home.” Ms Hall said living in Footscray as a mother

of a two-year-old has opened her eyes to the challenges families face in securing childcare and accessing services. Heritage and environmental issues are also high on her agenda, along with improvements to cycling and other infrastructure. Ms Hall intends to spend the next 12 months listening to what the area’s residents want from the state government and has no intention of taking for granted a safe seat. “I see community engagement and community organising as a really important part of what I want to do here in Footscray.” The state election is scheduled to be held on November 24, 2018. Benjamin Millar

The woman most likely to be Williamstown’s next Labor MP says she has politics in her blood. Melissa Horne, 49, grew up in the Hunter Valley with her sister and their school teacher parents. “My sister and I grew up in a very politically active family,” she said. “Mum and dad were public high school teachers who were fervent members of the union, and so we grew up discussing education policy and politics at the kitchen table. “When I was a teenager, dad (former Paterson MP Bob Horne) made the leap from being a teacher into being a federal member … so, it’s sort of in the blood.” Ms Horne’s career has taken her from the ALP’s national office to her current role as stakeholder relations director with the Level Crossing Removal Authority. She and partner Alex Lovelock moved from Canberra to Yarraville in 2002, before buying in Seddon 14 years ago. “Shack de Bodgy has been a labour of love,” she says of their renovated home where they live with their boys, Sacha, 9, and Phoenix, 12. About seven years ago, Ms Horne became involved with the SKY High Working Group, lobbying the state government to establish a state secondary school to service families in Seddon, Kingsville and Yarraville. “We were successful in being able to gain a commitment out of what was then the Andrews opposition, which … has since eventuated into a $25 million commitment for the Footscray Learning Precinct,” she said. The removal of the crossing at North Williamstown station in Ferguson Street will

be one of the most contentious issues for the new Williamstown MP. “Personally, I think that there needs to be a solution that deals with traffic management first and foremost,” Ms Horne said. “That roundabout is a nightmare. You’ve got a school really close. “There needs to be provision to stop any rat-running down past that school.” Another contentious issue is the West Gate Tunnel Project, which has split her electorate. Hobsons Bay council last week officially opposed the “Maribyrnong bypass” and vowed to lobby the state government ahead of next year’s election. Goya Dmytryshchak

Stories from the street

Dog groomer wins appeal

By Benjamin Millar and Laura Michell While the rapid gentrification of the inner-west is well-documented, not every resident has landed on easy street. Among those sharing their stories in the new series of fly-on-the-wall TV documentary Struggle Street is former heroin addict Michael, who lives in transitional housing in Seddon. Viewers are introduced to Michael on the day of his mother’s funeral. He reveals he is going to the funeral despite having no contact with his family for the past 30 years, and not being able to afford to buy nice shoes to wear to the service. Michael struggles to get by on the $60 a fortnight left after he has paid rent and some bills while “dodging” other bills. He lives with two dogs in a house overflowing with litter. He has mental health problems. He no longer takes heroin, but is on prescribed methadone after spending the 1990s on drugs. “I suffered years of bullying at school … by 19, I was hooked on heroin,” he said. “Everyone I know died during the ’90s. Everyone except maybe one or two people.” The second series of Struggle Street was filmed across Queensland and Victoria. The filming in Seddon was carried out on the quiet after Maribyrnong council rejected the producer’s application to film in the area when they floated the idea of filming the entire series in Braybrook. Maribyrnong council chief executive Stephen Wall said at the time the permit was denied due to the negative portrayal of suburbs, residents and disadvantage in the first series, filmed in Sydney’s west. However Struggle Street executive producer David Galloway said the second series did not

focus on a particular location, but rather issues affecting people across Australia. He said the people featured in the six episodes wanted to tell their stories of hardship because they believed their voices weren’t being heard. “In just about every suburb there are people doing it tough,” Mr Galloway said. “These are issues being experienced in every postcode.”

SBS television and online content director Marshall Heald said the series offered a “really raw, unflinching and honest portrayal of hardship”. Mr Heald said 2.99 million Australians live below the poverty line, with 105,000 people now homeless. Struggle Street will air on SBS at 8.30pm Tuesday-Thursday from November 28.

A pet groomer convicted over the fatal beating of a dog with a hair dryer at a Maribyrnong salon has avoided jail-time after his three-month sentence was set aside on appeal. Paul Rogers, 51, was convicted in September on animal cruelty charges over an incident at the Petbarn salon at Highpoint shopping centre in April last year. The court heard that the silky-fox terrier died soon after the incident. Rogers, who entered a guilty plea, was sentenced to three months imprisonment and ordered to perform 200 hours community work. The court also disqualified Rogers from being in charge of an animal for the maximum 10 years. He appealed the severity of the sentence and was bailed pending the hearing of a County Court appeal last Friday. County Court Judge Michael O’Connell set aside the sentence and 10-year disqualification, instead imposing an 18-month Community Correction order including 200 hours community work and a four-year ban on being in charge of any animal. RSPCA Victoria prosecutor, Senior Inspector Daniel Bode, said Rogers’ act was a serious offence with terrible consequences. “We are appalled at the cruelty inflicted on this dog,” he said. Rogers was also ordered to pay RSPCA Victoria’s costs of $4368. Benjamin Millar

Crash driver lands in jail

The utility that crashed at Altona Beach. (Goya Dmytryshchak)

Near Millers Road, Harvey’s vehicle hit the rear of the ute causing the ute to veer right and cut across the footpath next to the seawall. “As the ute crossed over the footpath, it collided with Mr and Mrs Xerri, narrowly missing their adult daughter, Jessica,” Ms Quin said. “The impact propelled them over the retaining wall and on to the beach. The ute landed on its roof on the beach.” Passers-by assisted Mr and Mrs Xerri, while four people crawled out of the ute’s windows, seemingly uninjured. Harvey drove on to a nature strip at the corner of The Esplanade and Millers Road before taking off along Millers Road. Mrs Xerri, in her late 50s, suffered a fractured pelvis, fractures to her lower spine and internal bleeding. Her husband received fractures to his lower limbs and internal bleeding. They were treated at The Alfred hospital before being taken to Epworth Rehabilitation, where they remained until May, 2015.

COMMODORE JOHN ZAMMIT

Yacht history revealed The world’s oldest continually-running motor yacht club is opening its doors to the public. The Royal Victorian Motor Yacht Club, established 113 years ago, is this month hosting a community open day in Williamstown. Commodore John Zammit said the club originated in the Port Phillip Club Hotel in Flinders Street in 1904 and moved to its present site at 260 Nelson Place in 1937. “The club actually pre-dates the Royal Australian Navy,” he said. “The club still has a strong association with the navy. In fact, the patron is the current Chief of Navy [Vice Admiral Tim Barrett]. “During the war, a number of our boats were seconded to a the naval auxiliary and they patrolled the local wharves and the docks.”

The club was granted its royal warrant, allowing it to use the prefix ‘Royal’, in 1937 - “in view of the possible usefulness of the club from a national standpoint in time of emergency”. Mr Zammit said the open day aimed to dispel the myth that boating was out of reach or for a different echelon of society. “While we are primarily a boat club, there is a great family and social side to the RVMYC,” he said. “In fact, many of our members don’t even own boats and come along just to enjoy our location and facilities.” The open day, with food trucks, boating exhibits, live music, and bar and bistro facilities, is on November 26 from 11.30am-3.30pm.

A man will spend at least 16 months in jail for his part in a collision that seriously injured a couple at Altona Beach in 2015. Hoppers Crossing man Daryn Harvey, 48, pleaded guilty in the County Court to charges of negligently causing serious injury and failing to stop and render assistance after an accident. He was sentenced to two years and nine months’ jail with a minimum of 16 months. The court heard about 9pm on February 19, 2015, Harvey had been driving a white Hyundai SUV with a passenger, Tarek El Houli, when his car was involved in a collision with a white Mitsubishi ute driven by Altona Meadows man Samir Haddara. Two pedestrians, Michael and Doris Xerri, were struck by the ute and suffered serious injuries. The court heard both cars had driven from the Point Cook Road/Central Avenue roundabout at Point Cook, along Queen Street and then Maidstone Street to The Esplanade at Altona. County Court Judge Claire Quin said Harvey believed he was “under imminent threat of death or serious injury from a member of or people connected to the Haddara family”. “You became friendly with members of the El Houli family and because of that connection became embroiled in a familial dispute between them and the Haddara family,” she said. Both vehicles were observed by witnesses being driven on the wrong side of The Esplanade at an estimated 90-100km/h.

Zombie movie a monster hit By Goya Dmytryshchak An independent feature film featuring zombie extras from Melbourne’s west premiers this week with three sell-out shows. The Last Hope opens at Lido Cinemas on Friday as part of Monster Fest, which is dubbed Australia’s foremost celebration of international cult and horror cinema. The plot revolves around a post-apocalyptic world, with zombies descending on Australia which has so far been unscathed through a brutal border protection policy and internment camps. The film was shot at locations across the west including Seaworks at Williamstown, the Newport Railway Workshops, the former Sunbury asylum, and industrial landscapes around Spotswood and Yarraville. Director Leigh Ormsby said a call-out for zombie extras, which featured in Star Weekly last year, went viral. “We had about 13,000 end up joining the group … and about 3500 applicants,” he said. “For a lot of people, it’s fun to do something that’s quite different – so dressing up and having professional make-up artists work on you. It’s also something that takes you out of your normal comfort zone. “To go into base human instinct as a monster is really appealing to a lot of people, it seems.” He said one of the biggest scenes in Melbourne’s independent film history was shot at Newport and involved more than 500 cast and crew. “On the big-shoot day, there was basically just a nice big horde that runs around the corner and overwhelms a group of soldiers,” Ormsby said. “We had a lot of soldier extras as well, utilising actual members of the Defence Force.

“We actually held a rehearsal for all our extras in a park so they could learn how to do some basic falls … because having 250-300 people run around a corner, the potential for incident is massive.” For more information on the film, visit the film’s Facebook page.

Inspired by ghostly gran A creative call for compassion for those in need is being brought to the stage in Footscray this week. Vivid, a new play by Hoa Pham, traces the story of Khan, a Vietnamese girl with schizophrenia who sees the ghost of her grandmother. The deeply personal play was inspired by Pham’s grandmother, Ba, who had schizophrenia and saw her deceased husband and choruses of cats. The author, playwright and psychologist has drawn on her experience working with clients who experience psychoses, including delusions concerning refugees.

“Ironically, the way Australia treats refugees is like that of a paranoid delusion – the government is persecutory and is out to get them,” Pham said. The work follows on from her play Silence and novellas Wave and The Other Shore. Director Wolf Heidecker said what might look like an illness to some might be spiritual sophistication to others. Vivid will be performed at Footscray Community Arts Centre from 7.30pm nightly until Saturday. Tickets $22/$18 via www.trybooking.com.

Push to rename federal seat By Benjamin Millar A trailblazing activist for Aboriginal rights could be recognised with the renaming of the Federal electorate of Gellibrand in his honour. A push is under way for Gellibrand to be renamed Cooper, after indigenous rights pioneer William Cooper, who helped to establish the Footscray-based Australian Aborigines’ League in 1934 to advocate for a fairer deal for indigenous Australians. Labor has written to the Australian Electoral Commission seeking the change in conjunction with any redrawing of the electorate’s boundaries as part of its redistribution ahead of the next election. Gellibrand MP Tim Watts said the legacy of early European lawyer and explorer Joseph Tice Gellibrand and the ‘Batman Treaty’ he helped formulate was “contested at best”. “The ‘treaty’ seems to have involved the purported exchange of 600,000 acres of land in what is now Melbourne, for a collection of trade goods,” he said. “Gellibrand was a product of a different time and his interactions with indigenous Australians reflect outdated thinking about our relationship with the traditional owners of our land.” The proposal to change the name was part of a submission by Labor to the AEC that was publicly released on Monday. The submission also calls to replace the name Batman to Wonga and McMillan to Monash. William Cooper held an ‘Aboriginal Day of Mourning’ on January 26, 1938, to coincide

with the 150th anniversary of the landing of the First Fleet. The day evolved into a National Aborigines Day and later became NAIDOC Week. Mr Cooper’s legacy lives on locally in the naming of the William Cooper Bridge at Footscray station and the William Cooper Cup, an annual footy match between Victoria Police and an indigenous team at Footscray’s Whitten Oval during NAIDOC Week.

‘‘

Gellibrand was a product of a different time

’’

- Tim Watts

Williamstown High School year 11 student Aretha Stewart-Brown, who earlier this year became the first female elected youth prime minister for the National Indigenous Youth Parliament, echoed the call for change. “Everyone should know about this remarkable civil rights campaigner who was amongst the first in the world to protest against the Nazis treatment of the Jews in the 1930s,” she said. “It’s initiatives like this which show Aboriginal people are slowly getting the recognition they deserve.” Mr Watts has posted a petition in support of the name change on his website and comments on the suggestion are able to be made via the AEC website until December 1.

Bravery honoured Altona North man Roger Bertocci, who was murdered after going to the rescue of a pregnant woman being assaulted by her partner, has been posthumously honoured with a bravery award. Mr Bertocci, 46, was fatally stabbed on December 14, 2014 after pulling over in Blackshaws Road to help the woman. The woman, who was 22 weeks pregnant, had been headbutted and punched by her partner causing her to fall to the ground. Mr Bertocci left behind his wife, Helen, and their two daughters, Ashlee, now aged 17, and Brylee, now four. Last week, he was among 20 Victorians recognised by The Royal Humane Society of Australasia. Mrs Bertocci last week accepted the The Posthumous Medal for her husband from Victoria’s Governor Linda Dessau.

“He respected women,” Mrs Bertocci said. “He held women in high regard. It would be so against his grain to even contemplate any form of physical violence on a woman or a child.” Mrs Bertocci praised police investigator James Brady and his team, who she said had constantly reminded her that her husband’s actions had saved two lives. “When they put together the chain of events, there’s no doubt in their minds that Roger acted as a hero on that day, and that protected her baby as well.” Mr Bertocci’s killer, Jonathon Sporton, was sentenced to 21 years’ jail with a 17-year minimum.

Unit plan stifles hopes for park By Benjamin Millar

Architectural renders for the Buckley Street proposal. (Supplied)

Plans have been revealed for a 10-storey apartment building on a parcel of Footscray land that residents had been pushing to turn into a park. Residential developers Keystone Property Group, which bought the site at 94-104 Buckley Street from the state government, has submitted plans to Maribyrnong council to use the land to build 121 apartments atop four retail stores. The 2736-square metre site was acquired by the state government during construction of the Regional Rail Link and sold to Keystone

last year for just under $5 million. About 80 homes and businesses along and near Buckley Street were bulldozed to make way for the project. Maribyrnong council last year baulked at buying the land for public open space after the state government said it would need to pay close to $5.5 million to secure the site. Keystone is in the process of building the adjacent eight-storey The Buckley development. A town planning report submitted with the new application cites the site as “an ideal candidate” for infill redevelopment. “It is a site, which by virtue of its size and configuration, presents a unique opportunity

for a development of significant scale and intensity. “There are few, if any other vacant sites located within the FMAC [Footscray Metropolitan Activity Centre] which would be comparable to the subject site in this regard.” Resident Daniell Flood, who led the push for the land to be opened up as a park, warned the proposal would help Buckley Street become “a tunnel of towers filled with port trucks”. Property developer Evolve recently spent $8.51 million to acquire land at 130-186 Buckley Street and the state government has also sold a 646-square metre site at 112 Buckley Street to an investor for $1.425 million.

Jet-skis back on duty Williamstown Swimming and Life Saving Club is gearing up for a busy summer with two jet-skis in its arsenal. After a successful trial last year, the jet-skis will be permanently based at Williamstown to patrol the water, including other jet-skiers. Club president Josh Charlesworth said the jet-skis provided a deterrent to irresponsible jet-ski behaviour while also extending the club’s patrol capability and capacity. “The latter is particularly important as it allows the club to be proactive and patrol waterways outside the flags,” he said. Club lifesaving operations director Kane Treloar urged people to check conditions before going out on the water and to ensure they had appropriate safety equipment. He said lifesavers recently helped a kite surfer who had been blown out to sea.

“Often members of the public are getting into trouble by using equipment they are unfamiliar with in challenging conditions,” Mr Treloar said. “Always check the weather before going in the water and make sure they match your ability.” During the jet-ski trial, lifesavers responded to requests ranging from medical incidents and water rescues to broken-down vessels, in addition to supporting other emergency service providers, including Victoria Police. Williamstown MP Wade Noonan said the club had received a $25,000 state government grant for jet-ski storage, clubhouse upgrades and development of a Starfish Nippers program for children with additional needs.

MY PLACE The five giant bronze statues of footy greats that flank the Avenue of Legends on the approach to the MCG are the work of sculptor Lis Johnson, who loves Yarraville’s village feel. She speaks with Benjamin Millar What is your connection with Yarraville? I moved back to Melbourne in 1994 after living in New South Wales for 11 years, and started sculpting for an art production company in Spotswood [Mothers Art]. I’d never heard of Yarraville, except I knew that a few brave musician friends had moved here in the late ’80s. There was one cafe, empty shops, a boarded-up theatre, and… affordable houses. I somehow convinced the bank to lend me enough money to buy one. When the artists and musicians move into an area the rest follows: cafes, bars, cool shops, trees, culture … What do you love most about the area? It’s conveniently close to the city, but still has a friendly “village” feel. Although it’s become gentrified, it’s not too pretentious. Do you have a favourite local place or places? Of course, I love the Sun Theatre. My two favourite shops are Village Idiom and Post Industrial Design (in West Footscray). There are so many great places to eat out, or get takeaway (Bopha Devi is a fave). How did your love of sculpting develop? I had quite a “free-range” upbringing in the ’60s and ’70s, close to remnant bushland in Melbourne’s outer eastern suburbs – building cubbies or billy-carts, digging traps for tigers, re-enacting pirate movies. Not a lot of TV, more imaginative and “hands-on” activities. I progressed from Play-Doh, Lego

and constructing things out of cardboard to making life-sized plaster figures. As a teenager, I believed the world would be destroyed within my lifetime (by nuclear war), so when deciding about a career I opted for something that I enjoyed, which was the arts. I gravitated towards sculpture. It was a good choice for me because I can stay physically active with plenty of intellectual stimulation. Each project involves researching different subjects and solving technical problems. Ideas are easy; it’s the follow through, bringing them into reality – that’s the challenge for every artist or inventor. Who have been your biggest personal and artistic inspirations and why? Scuptor Bert Flugelman was my main artistic mentor: Wise, funny, he taught me not to make excuses – if you don’t know how to do something, find out and don’t give up. I’m also lucky to have Louis Laumen as a friend. I think he is one of the best figurative sculptors in the world right now. There are so many artists I admire: Antony Gormley, William Kentridge, Yayoi Kusama, Louise Bourgeois, Frida Kahlo, David Bowie, Bjork, Missy Higgins, Jane Campion, Charlie Chaplin … What’s something people might be surprised to learn about you? I can move my ears without touching them. Lis Johnson will open her West Footscray studio this weekend as part of Open Studios. Visit maribyrnong.vic.gov.au for details and www.lisjohnson.com.au

As always, if you have any recipes, tips or other info you’d like to share, email me at sarah@ howdypartnersmedia.com.au

STEPHANIE HOBBS,

I can’t tell you how excited I get upon seeing sweet, juicy, blushing mangoes hit the supermarkets about this time of year. The annual Honey Gold mango harvest is well under way in the Northern Territory. Producer Pinata Farms says picking has begun in Katherine, with first ripe fruit due to arrive soon.

PUBLIC AFFAIRS CO-ORDINATOR

Pinata Farms managing director Gavin Scurr says: “Overall, we’re confident of another good mango season, with a slight increase in volume expected on last season.”

FB: How would you rate your cooking skills? SH: I’m a pretty good cook and have always loved cooking. When I was a kid, I would always be making a mess in the kitchen and experimenting. Now I’m less adventurous, but I love to make anything from a curry to a good chocolate brownie. FB: What is your signature dish? SH: If I ever have people over, I always make pesto pasta with roasted cherry tomatoes. It’s super simple but never fails to impress … you can’t go wrong with homemade pesto. I’ll often buy organic or gluten-free pasta just because I can find it too heavy otherwise. FB: If you could only have one more meal, what would it be? SH: Coming from North Queensland, I love seafood, so if I could just feast on prawns and Moreton Bay bugs I’d be very happy. FB: What is your favourite TV food show and who is your favourite TV food person? SH: It’s got to be MasterChef MasterChef. I think I’ve watched every season to date and it never fails to impress. As for my favourite TV person, it would have to be Heston Blumenthal. I know he’s technically not a chef but he’s so passionate about what he does and it’s amazing to see what he can come up with. FB: What is your favourite food? SH: If not seafood, I’m a fiend for a good-ice cream – but definitely not together! FB: What is your favourite drink? SH: Coffee or an espresso martini. FB: Which five people would you most like to invite to dinner? SH: My grandma died when I was a kid and I don’t have many memories of her, so it would be amazing to have dinner with her again. I’d also invite Barack and Michelle Obama, because they’d have amazing stories to tell. Throw in Roy Orbison for the entertainment, and then my cousin, who is a clean freak so I wouldn’t have to worry about doing the dishes. FB: Do you have a kitchen tip for us? SH: Speaking of dishes! I hate going to bed without cleaning the kitchen. Something about it grosses me out. So my tip would beAs to clean straight it’ll make always, if away you –have anyyou feel better and it’s one less thing you have to do in the morning.

Honey Gold mangoes will be available at leading supermarkets nationally. Enjoy them fresh for breakfast, pop them in your morning smoothie, grill them or combine with cream and sponge finger biscuits to create “mangomasu” (a summery twist on your traditional tiramisu).

Make good on those Christmas promises Christmas is nearly here again… and it’s probably about now you’re remembering all of the new appliances promises you made yourself after spending hours in the kitchen last Christmas.... and forgot about until now. The oven that needs an upgrade to cope with yet another family Christmas lunch roast with all the trimmings, the bigger fridge to fit just a few more dessert plates and the dishwasher that can not only cope with the multitude of dirty dishes but actually clean them properly too. So many good intentions to make Christmas feast cooking a breeze this year and where did those 12 months go? Never fear, Harvey Norman is here to ensure there’s still time for those Christmas promises to be kept! Westinghouse WVEP615S/W PyroClean oven (pictured) Easily clean this multifunction oven using minimal effort and without harsh chemicals. Safely heat the oven to a high temperature to turn different levels of grease and grime into ash. Then just quickly wipe the residue away. Westinghouse French-door refrigerator WHE6060SA (to fit 90cm cavity) Clever engineering allows this to be installed with minimum gaps on the sides. A huge 605-litre capacity means maximum storage for all fresh produce. It comes with a filtered water dispenser, FamilySafe lockable compartments and selfclose main freezer drawer. Westinghouse dishwasher WSF6608X Not only do dishes come out perfectly clean and dry – this one has spacious FlexRack cutlery trays and adjustable baskets to accommodate up to 15 place settings. An 30-minute program is ideal for lightly soiled dishes and a sensor adjusts the wash cycle to match soil levels.

Gingerbread Christmas cookies INGREDIENTS Cookies • 160g unsalted butter • 140g castor sugar • 180g brown sugar • 3 eggs • 2 tbsp molasses • 500g plain flour • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder • 2 tsp ground cinnamon • 3 tsp mixed spice • 2 tbsp ground ginger Lemon Icing • 1 1/2 lemons, juiced • 300g pure icing sugar, sifted METHOD Cream butter and sugars in a food processor. Add the eggs and molasses and process until combined. Add remaining ingredients and bring together to a smooth dough. Rest in the fridge for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180C fan-forced or 200C conventional. Line a baking tray with baking paper. On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1 centimetre thick and cut out cookies. Lift on to lined tray, leaving a couple of centimetres between each, and bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. They will still be a little soft when they come out of the oven so leave to cool on the tray. To make the lemon icing, mix together the icing sugar and lemon juice until you have a thick honey-like consistency - adjust with more sugar or juice if needed. Dip the cooled biscuits in the icing or decorate using a squeeze bottle or piping bag - you can also set edible silver balls in the icing to add a little more sparkle - and place on a rack to set.

FOOD REVIEW STARWEEKLY.COM.AU

CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir enjoys a taste of Turkey On the way to Cafe Lakoza, I attempt to get Bennie enthused about our impending lunch by indicating he will be free to order a halal snack pack. If he so desires. He doesn’t. “I’m all done with halal snack packs,” he says. Hmmm – it seems another teen fixation has fallen by the wayside. So if an HSP isn’t the go, I suggest we may want to get stuck into the Turkish breakfast feast on offer. It’s the kind of thing – replete with all sorts of sweet and savoury offerings – we’ve had before in more northern suburbs, but never in the west. As it turns out, we arrive after the noon deadline for the brekky line-up, so settle for more orthodox Turkish feeds. Cafe Lakoza is right next to Found 401, which has become a well-regarded burger stop, and about a block from a fine yum cha establishment. The place is pretty darn busy for Cup Day; there’s a big family occasion – birthday party? – taking up most of the room. But we are seen to with smiles and in good time, both in having our order taken and in having our food served. Visually, there’s not a lot of difference between Bennie’s selection of mixed kebab platter, with chicken and lamb, and my own choice of lamb alone. Both cost $18 and are wonderful value for

CAFE LAKOZA Address: G08/1 Foundry Road, Sunshine West Phone: 0404 499 031 money. There’s a lot of food here and neither of us go close to finishing our plates. All is fine and fresh. Good dips and salad and rice. Heaps of meat. Best of all are the chips – they are excellent. A rarely noted phenomena: Oft times the best chips you’ll find anywhere in Melbourne are those served in joints of the Middle Eastern and/or Mediterranean persuasion. The bread we are served, after a short delay on a busy day, is not the fresh-baked Turkish flatbread we are expecting. It’s more of a bun thing – like a cross between Turkish bread and a regular dinner roll. It still does the job. We finish happy chappies – but not before noting that the halal snack packs being served to another table do look fabulous. It’s a fine thing to have a good Turkish eatery in Sunshine – and it seems it’s already become a popular fixture. And the location is good, with parking no problem.

We have identified female football as a key - Matthew Duck strategic item

■ The

’’

WRFL chief executive Matthew Duck said the league was committed to working with its clubs to expand participation opportunities for females in the west. “We have identified female football as a key strategic item, so we will continue to collaborate with clubs to ensure female football is viable for not just next season, but for many years to come,” he said. The WRFL will initiate a series of club development workshops to drive the development of female football. AFL Victoria female football development manager Chyloe Kurdas will facilitate the workshops during the off season.

The century that wasn’t By Lance Jenkinson It’s a good thing that Yarraville captain-coach Matthew Love has a good sense of humour. Love could see the funny side of a miscalculation that robbed him of a century against Preston in Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association north-west first XI at Yarraville Oval on Saturday. Love thought he brought up the magical triple figures just before rain stopped played on the second day of an enthralling contest after his teammates gave him a standing ovation. He even went through the ritual of raising his bat to his applauding teammates. Then the thunder and lightning crashed in, followed by rain – and a ball later, play was abandoned at a crucial moment in the match. Love returned to the dressing room to realise he was only on 99 and his teammates had calculated his score incorrectly. “I’ve never celebrated 100 before and then [I] realised it wasn’t,” said Love with a laugh. “There was a big clap and applause for the ton. There was only another ball left after that, so I defended that because I knew we’d be going off for the rain, thunder and lightning. “When I got off the ground, they were like, you actually only made 99. It was a bit flattening, but like one of the guys said, it will be something to laugh at in the future.” It was not only Love who was robbed. The spectators missed out on what promised to be a thrilling finish to the match. Preston played its part on day one, posting an imposing 6-302 off 80 overs. But Yarraville showed its batting strength on the second day, racing to 1-193 off 51 overs. The Eagles lost seven overs to rain early in the day, but still would have had 22 overs late in the day to pick off the 110 runs required with nine wickets in hand. “That was the most disappointing part – not getting the chance to get to the target and notch up a win,” Love said. “The game was still sort of in the balance, because we lost seven overs with the first rain delay. “It was turning out to be a cracker of a game, so it was disappointing not to get a result, but there’s definitely positive signs.” David Morgan posted his best score for the season with 47, while youngster Joe Billings continued his consistent form with 37 not out. “We’re playing positive enough cricket, but we just need to get a couple of wins on the board in a row and set ourselves up for a launch after the Christmas break,” Love said. Yarraville will travel to Hoppers Crossing for a two-day game starting on Saturday.

world changes for a few of our talented young sports people with the AFL draft this Friday night. Cam Rayner and Lachlan Fogarty head the list of prospective draftees to the elite. Products of the Western Jets, they may both be interstate bound, and maybe together to Brisbane’s sunshine. I am always intrigued by the expectation that comes with being a high draft pick and I hope these young men are mentally prepared for how their life is about to change. The physical demands are much easier met than what happens above the shoulders. I hope elite football clubs put as much effort into the mental and social preparation as they do for football.

■ Whoever

the new Bulldogs draft recruits are, fans can meet them at the final Inside the Kennel show at the Yarraville Club on Thursday, December 14 when I will host Jackson Trengove and some of the other new pups for a meet and greet with the red white and blue army. It is always a good chance to find out a bit more than you get from the papers, as the boys are always relaxed and excited about their new challenges. The recruiting staff will also be on hand to give an inside view of why the new players were chosen to be part of the future at the Whitten Oval.

■ Spotswood

Cricket Club is hosting a Sunday Roast at Donald McLean Reserve on Sunday, December 10 from noon featuring the 2001 Brownlow medallist Jason Akermanis. Tickets are $60 and available through Nick Bartol on 0409 186 337. Aker is an entertaining speaker who does not mince words, and has a remarkable story to tell. Not surprisingly, it is about him. The Spotswood women’s team will play a T20 game from 2pm so it should be a most enjoyable afternoon. The Spotswood first X1 are currently third on the VTCA ladder.

■ In

other cricket news a remarkable double hat-trick was the highlight of last weekend with Jarrod Eccles taking 6-3 for Footscray ANA. The footage shared on social media was priceless. Konrad Kurta has the hottest bat in the west adding an unbeaten 84 to his recent double century for Yarraville Club CC. Matthew Love scored 99 not out and picked up three wickets for Yarraville in its draw with Preston in the VSDCA, while top of the ladder Williamstown’s Craig Sheedy scored 73 and took 2-42. Both are former district cricket players still showing their class. Kevin Hillier

Meanwhile, Williamstown had to share the points with a plucky Taylors Lakes after rain forced the abandonment of play on day two at the Williamstown Cricket Ground. The Seagulls were in the box seat after posting 304 and having Taylors Lakes in dire trouble on 9-152.

But the rain came at just the right time to snap the Seagulls’ three-game winning streak. They will travel to Brunswick for a two-day top-two blockbuster starting on Saturday. There was no play between Altona and Hoppers Crossing on the second day, with the teams sharing the points.

The Western Region Football League will run a stand-alone women’s competition for the first time in 2018. The WRFL combined with the Essendon District Football League for a joint competition last season, but with growing interest from WRFL clubs in creating their own competition and the increasing popularity of the AFL Women’s national competition, the WRFL and EDFL have decided to go their separate ways next year. The WRFL’s most rapid growth is in its junior girls section, which grew from 10 teams in 2016 to 27 this year across three different age groups. That number is expected to increase next year, with teams putting forward submissions for girls teams at under-12, under-15 and under-18 levels and some clubs venturing into girls’ football for the first time. The senior women’s competition could have as many as 12 teams in its inaugural season, creating a clear pathway for juniors.

Opener bats Altona North into safety once again Opening batsman Matthew Frydas has given Altona North a fighting chance of defending its undefeated record in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association north west division. Frydas posted an entertaining 80 as the wickets crumbled around him to lead North to a competitive 7-153 off 58 overs on a rain-interrupted opening day against Sunshine United at Selwyn Park. With North in trouble on 5-70, Frydas combined with Phil Auciello (23) for a 53-run sixth wicket partnership that turned the tide and had the game in the balance when play was stopped for rain. North will have another 11 overs to bat when play resumes on day two before Sunshine United gets 69 overs for its run chase. “We weren’t going too well and then Matty Frydas and Phil Auciello really steadied the ship,” North captain Haydn Wilkinson said.

Altona North opener Matthew Frydas has made a century and two half centuries already this summer. (Marco De Luca)

“We kind of clawed it back a bit, so from where we were to where we are now, we’re pretty happy with that.

“We’ve got 11 more overs to bat, so we can still post a pretty good score next week. “We don’t have to go out there all guns blazing from ball one, we can work the field around a little bit before going. “Our guys are up for the challenge and we’re looking forward to next week already.” One of the cornerstones of Altona North’s hot early season form has been the runs that Frydas has made at the top of the order. Frydas was one of North’s most consistent batsmen last summer, averaging 30.2 across all forms. But Frydas has stepped up and become a match-winner for North in the early rounds of this season and has been doing it in style. “He’s gone to another level this year,” Wilkinson said. “He came off 100 last week and got an 80 today, so he’s really lifted. “He’s a pivotal point in our batting line-up.

“He doesn’t have much fear, he just plays his shots.” Elsewhere in the north west division, Laverton posted a commanding 2-203 off 57 overs away to Airport West-St Christophers. Dallas Treherne led the Magpies with 101 not out, while Broderick Williams carved out 63 not out. In senior division, Yarraville Club cruised to 2-182 before rain stopped play, with Konrad Kurta top-scoring with 84 not out. Spotswood bowled superbly to have Tullamarine 9-103. In north west A1, St Andrews Footscray, who made 122, are locked in a tense battle with Werribee Centrals, who are 6-71 in reply. Thanancheyan Arunthavapalan had a big day for the Saints with 3-18 and 21. Lance Jenkinson

Wolves slaughter Lions By Lance Jenkinson Top-of-the-ladder Williamstown Wolves ran amok in a 23-5 mercy rule win over finals contender Springvale Lions in the Baseball Victoria summer league division 2 at Rowan Road Reserve on Sunday. The Wolves only needed seven innings to dispose of the Lions in ruthless fashion before the umpires called a halt to play. Wolves playing coach Jarryd Rogers was taken aback by the brutal nature of the victory over a team that had denied his side a seventh consecutive win in a 5-5 draw at Melbourne Ballpark in a mid-week clash. “It’s very rare for that [mercy rule] to happen in a game between first and fourth,” Rogers said. “It’s a testament to how well we played today. “It’s a pretty good indicator of how well we’re playing right now.” Rogers almost ran out of breath going through the multiple hitters in the Williamstown line-up. There was three each for Jordan Camov, Aaron Green, Justin Gourlay, Jason McDonald and Bill Millar. Rogers himself took to the Lions pitchers with four hits of his own. There were towering home runs for Gourlay and Ryan Camov, while batters one through to nine ended up with multiple hits in the rout. It was an offensive display that left the home fans shocked. Above all, Rogers was proud of the patience his players displayed in the batters box. “We did pretty good at laying off pitches that were balls and forcing their pitchers to throw very hittable pitches,” he said. “When they did that, we didn’t miss it a whole lot today. “I was impressed with the team that it wasn’t just one guy who got all the hits.” Williamstown only needed to use two pitchers on the day, a luxury for a team in the midst of a hectic pre-Christmas period of games. Import Jonathan Mottay produced five solid innings to pick up the win before Aaron Green closed out the game in the last two innings. Mottay has made a super impression on Wolves fans since moving from Paris to link up with the team. “The short version is that he’s killed it so far,” Rogers said. “He’s dominated every game that he’s pitched in.” Williamstown is keen to keep its undefeated record intact in a double billing this week, including Sunday’s home game against Port Melbourne. In division 1, Newport Rams were pipped 6-5 by Upwey-Ferntree Gully Tigers in a thriller at Kings Park on Saturday. The Rams have lost their past six games, including three by a single run. The David Asp-coached team will be hoping for a change of luck with two games this week.

Dogs shine in the short form Footscray has made an impressive start to the Twenty20 strand of the Premier Cricket draw, defeating St Kilda by 29 runs on the road at the Harry Trott Oval on Sunday. The Bulldogs were denied the chance to make it two-out-of-two in the shortest format at the weekend, when their game against Essendon at the Merv Hughes Oval on Saturday was washed out with them in the box seat. Despite the initial setback, the win and the draw were enough to lift the Bulldogs into second place in the overall standings, as their good early-season form in the one-dayers carried over into the Twenty20s. On Sunday, Footscray posted a competitive 8-150 off their 20 overs with state representative Travis Dean hitting an entertaining 57 off 40 balls. Openers Greg Munro (15 off 12) and Hayden Butterworth (28 off 28) set up the innings with quick early runs. Footscray delivered a superb performance with the ball, restricting St Kilda to 4-121 off 20 overs. New-ball operators Jonah Koch, who took 2-25 off four overs, and Hamish Winter-Irving, with 1-16 off four, led from the front as the Bulldogs contained a usually potent Saints batting line-up. Damon Egan tried hard to get the Saints up to the required run rate with 54 off 48, but his side left its charge too late. On Saturday, Footscray had its nose in front of the game against Essendon before a storm forced a halt to play. After restricting the Bombers to 5-126 off 18.2 overs, the Bulldogs were coasting at 1-28 in reply after 2.3 overs. Justin Gourlay capped a three-hit performance for Williamstown Wolves with a home run. (Shawn Smits)

Lance Jenkinson


STARWEEKLY.COM.AU

Jet set for the top flight By Lance Jenkinson Western Jets have never had a player taken with the first pick in the AFL National Draft, but that could change on Friday night. The Jets have a genuine shot at providing the No.1 prospect in the nation, with gun youngster Cameron Rayner in the mix. Rayner is unlikely to fall below the third pick, but many experts, on phantom drafts, have him locked into the top spot. Should he be selected with pick one, Rayner, a Hillside Sharks and Essendon Doutta Stars product, will make Jets history and head to the Brisbane Lions. If the Lions look elsewhere, a move to Fremantle is a possibility. Should Rayner fall out of the top two, the Melbourne-based clubs will get their chance to swoop on the local, with Carlton and North Melbourne holding picks three and four respectively. Jets coach Torin Baker has fielded calls and had conversations with plenty of AFL recruiters. But he is none the wiser about where Rayner could land as the draft unfolds. “It’s really hard to know which way clubs are going to go because they like to keep their cards really close to their chest,” Baker said. “Clearly, Cam deserves to be in that conversation. “He’s been the early choice as the No.1, but whether that remains the same on draft night, I’m not sure.” Baker said Rayner’s competitiveness should see him shine at AFL level. “A club will be really happy that they get a really good player,” he said. Shannon Grant, taken with pick three in the 1994 draft, remains the top Western Jets’ draftee. Grant went on to play more than 300 games with Sydney and North Melbourne, claiming a Norm Smith Medal for best-on-ground in the grand final in the Kangaroos’ 1999 premiership side. Will Hoskin-Elliott, the next earliest Jets draftee, was taken with pick four by GWS Giants in 2011. Rayner, a powerful half forward-midfielder, has rare qualities that could see him become the No.1 pick – or make the clubs that pass on him forever rue the day. “He’s had that X factor about him,” Baker said. “Whether it’s been at the national championships, local grand finals or with us, it’s that ability to be a match winner and change games pretty quickly. “He’s got some of those rare athletic qualities. He’s got the power and strength in his game – and that contested ball-winning ability.”

SPORT

Baker pumped for new season Torin Baker has put pen to paper on a contract that will see him return as coach of the Western Jets. Baker’s 2018 season will be his sixth in charge of the TAC Cup club. “I was really committed to doing it again,” Baker said. “I’m looking forward to it.” Baker took on the head coaching position at the Jets in late 2012. He was a relatively untried coach, only 33 and still playing good football with Spotswood in the Western Region Football League. Baker was not an outsider at the Jets, having worked with the club as a development coach and assistant for the four seasons prior. But even with his connection to the club, Baker was considered to be a developing coach. “I was a pretty young coach going into it,” he said. “I hadn’t had a lot of coaching experience and I just finished playing and went straight into the coaching role. I wanted to do a good apprenticeship.” For the first three seasons, Baker coached the Jets part-time. The Jets decided to make it a full-time position three seasons ago and Baker has thrived. “Sometimes you go into your coaching thinking it’s all about what happens on the ground,” he said. “But there’s just so much that occurs around a football club and a team and I feel I’ve really got a broad-based knowledge now. “I’m really lucky that the coaching group I’ve got with me now are in their third year, with one of our coaches, Tom Perrett, in his fourth year … that’s been great for me personally and also good for the group as well. “When they’ve been with you for a little while, things just flow.” One aspect that is constantly changing is the playing personnel. Players have a short life span in the elite under-18 competition. Yet the Jets, who started their pre-season last week, will have a familiar look to them next season, with a number of 17-year-olds staying on board. “We’re pretty excited with this group,” Baker said. “Quite a few of the 17-year-olds finished high up in our best and fairest, so we think they’ll be strong contributors again. “We’d like to think we’ve got some players in draft calculations [next year].”

Fogarty flies under the radar as solid draft prospect Cameron Rayner has been all the rage among the draft experts, but the Western Jets reckon they have another gem in the ranks in Lachlan Fogarty. Fogarty is rated eighth on the Champion Data rankings and has been slotted into phantom drafts anywhere from the middle of the first round to the second round. The Spotswood product has enjoyed a stellar junior career, one that has run parallel with Rayner, the potential No. 1 pick. “With Cam and Fogs, they’ve always been at the very highest level in terms of their competitiveness and that’s what has put them in good stead since I’ve watched them as 14 or 15 year olds,” Western Jets coach Torin Baker said. “They’re at the top of the tree in terms of their competitiveness, they’ve been good listeners and really diligent with their footy. “Clearly they’ve got some real natural talent and they both have some strengths that are high end.”

Fogarty is a different type of player to Rayner, not as flashy, but just as effective. The 18-year-old has tremendous endurance and finds a way to impact every contest as a midfielder, be it in an attacking sense or defensively. “It’s that intensity around the ball and that willingness to tackle and repeat efforts,” Baker said. “When you’ve got a couple of elite qualities about you, it stands out at any level.” Three could be the magic number for the Jets. They could have a draft smokey in impressive ruck-forward Tristan Xerri. Xerri has made nearly every post a winner this season to bolt into draft contention. “He’s certainly attracted some interest and deservedly so with the way that he played in the back half of the year,” Baker said. “He had a couple of strong performances in the national championships, went to Werribee and competed against some really good opponents at VFL level and came back to us in

the last game of the year and had his best game. He played in the Young Guns game and was really good there as well.” Xerri is your typical modern day big. He can be a marking option in the forward line and then rotate into the ruck. That second string to his bow could be what sways an AFL recruiter in this draft, rather than risk missing out on him in 12 months time. Either way, the options are good for Xerri. “It’s a bit hard to know where some of the big boys will go because there is a tendency to draft bigger boys at an older age, but he’s given himself a good shot,” Baker said. “Sometimes the bigger boys take a little bit longer and he’s someone who’s had his injury troubles a little bit early in the year with an ankle injury, but he’s had a good run at it, got some games under his belt. “If he’s not drafted, he’ll be a 19 year old with us and will play some VFL football next year.” Lance Jenkinson

Contact your local Hyundai dealer for drive-away prices.

Small car big on performance By Derek Ogden, Marque Motoring When micro cars first came out, the joke went, you need two – one for each foot. The roller-skate analogy could equally be applied to the new Hyundai Kona – but for one thing. In latest technology, comfort and convenience, the small SUV is kitted out almost as well as its big brothers, Tucson and Santa Fe. Like its bigger siblings, the Kona comes in four levels of specification – Active, Active with Safety Pack, Elite and Highlander. There’s a choice of two petrol drivetrains – a 2.0-litre, naturally-aspirated unit mated with six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel-drive, or a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol unit, matched to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel-drive. Prices start at $24,500, plus on-road costs,

for the Active 2.0 six-speed automatic 2WD, and top out at $36,000 for the Highlander 1.6 turbo AWD with seven-speed double-clutch automatic. The front of the Kona is striking, with daytime running lights being separated from the main headlamp assembly Active has 16-inch wheels with a classic five-spoke design featuring twin spokes; Elite’s 17-inch wheels have a 20-spoke design; Highlander’s 18-inch wheels feature the classic five-spoke look with twin offset spokes in a contrasting black and machined metal finish. Kona will seat five with ample leg room front and back for the average size person. Luggage space is 361 litres with the back seat in place, expanding to an impressive 1143 litres with the rear seat folded.

Upmarket features include a head-up display in Highlander projecting a virtual image of drive-related information – speed, audio, cruise control details and systems warnings – on to a clear panel mounted behind the instrument binnacle. Infotainment is in the hands of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Safety features include forward collision assist, blind spot warning, lane keeping assist, driver inattention warning, high beam assist and rear cross traffic alert for use when reversing out of a parking spot. DRIVING During a launch drive out of Canberra and through the Yass Valley, the 2.0-litre took some urging off the mark and when pressed did so to the accompaniment of a harsh note.

WE ARE YOUR LOCAL KIA DEALER

At city speeds, the powertrain was unruffled, producing an adequate ride and handling experience. The 1.6 turbo, on the other hand, was sweet as, slipping between cogs smoothly, resulting in a responsive and spirited drive. Steering was just as positive and all-wheel drive made for a sure -footed stride on gravel. Kona has benefitted from input by Australian suspension engineers, hence the assuredness of both front-wheel and all-wheel drive models. Hyundai admits it’s coming to the small SUV segment late, leaving the market to the likes of the Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Mitsubishi ASX, Subaru XV and Toyota C-HR. But local executives maintain extra time and effort put into the Kona have enabled the company to produce a vehicle with superior performance and packaging. Over to you, punters.
