To believe the unbelievable

(Damjan Janevski)

Altona North’s Jarryd Byrne is appearing in what has been dubbed “summer’s biggest show”. The Unbelievables, is running at Hamer Hall from January 3-18. Byrne, of Dancing with the Stars fame, is one of six elite-level ballroom dancers in the show. “It’s a variety show which is taking inspiration from the Royal Variety … so there’s some fantastic acts,” he said. There’s comedy, live music, magic and circus acts, a Tony Award-winning ventriloquist and four-time Guinness world record quick-change artists. Byrne said the ballroom dancers brought each act on and off stage. “We bring in ballroom, Latin American, and a 1920s, ’30s and ’40s feel – so a lot of swing sections, Charleston and a lot of fun, eclectic styles. I think it’s a show for all ages.” Goya Dmytryshchak

School overhaul unveiled The inner-west’s biggest educational shake-up in decades is looming after the state government revealed details of its plans for a new Footscray Learning Precinct. Education Minister James Merlino on Tuesday said the $15 million first stage of the precinct would include master planning and designs for three campuses, as well as works at Footscray City Primary School and Gilmore College, in partnership with Victoria University and Maribyrnong council. In preparation for the precinct, next year will be the final year 7 or 11 intake for the all-girls Gilmore College, which will become

a co-educational junior campus for years 7-9 from 2020. Also in 2020, Footscray City College will became a senior campus for years 10-12. A new co-educational junior campus for years 7-9 will be built in Seddon, near the existing Footscray Nicholson campus of Victoria University, construction subject to future budget funding. “The Footscray Learning Precinct will create and link education facilities across Footscray, providing better learning opportunities for students, from early childhood through to secondary school and beyond,” Mr Merlino said. One principal will be appointed to oversee

the entire precinct, with principals also based at each campus. One school council will oversee all the campuses, which will also have a “shared learning framework” outlining how teaching and learning will be undertaken across the schools. The Footscray City College campus will be refurbished, while Gilmore College will be redeveloped as part of a central hub that will include Footscray Primary School. Footscray City Primary School will be redeveloped to increase capacity and a new early learning centre and a new hall and gymnasium will be built on the site. Current Footscray City College students

will complete their schooling at the existing site. Gilmore College students wishing to continue in a girls-only stream will have help to find alternative schools. Footscray MP Marsha Thomson said the project would improve education opportunities for local students. Williamstown MP Wade Noonan said the community had been involved in the process to ensure a result that fitted everyone’s needs. Further details about student transition arrangements, school governance and the shared learning framework for the precinct were to be outlined at a community meeting at Footscray City College on Tuesday night.

A MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR

OUT AND ABOUT

I am humbled and honoured to be elected as Mayor of this great city. I want to thank Cr Catherine Cumming for her work as Mayor over the past year.

I began my new life in Maribyrnong, and it is my gratitude for Australia and Melbourne’s west that drives me to serve our community. I have been given so many opportunities and this is a way that I can give back.

MY VIEW

Cr Cuc Lam Mayor of the City of Maribyrnong

Many of you would have seen media coverage recently about the Federal Government releasing the Maribyrnong Defence Site for development. It is a prime site with a riverside location and so close to the CBD. Council has been working closely with the Department of Defence and the Victorian Planning Authority and will be ensuring that the community is consulted about the site.

COUNCIL MEETINGS Dec Tuesday 12, 6.30pm – Ordinary Council Feb Tuesday 20, 6.30pm – Ordinary Council Friday 23, 8am – Inner Melbourne Action Plan Implementation Committee Meeting to be held at the City of Port Phillip, St Kilda Town Hall Carlisle Street, St Kilda Tuesday 27, 6.30pm – City Development Special Committee Meeting Meetings are held at the Maribyrnong Council Offices, corner Hyde and Napier Streets, Footscray. Agendas are available via Council’s website the Friday before a meeting at www.maribyrnong.vic.au/meetings.

We have to ensure that it contains a mix of housing – affordable housing, different densities, it has to have open space such as parks and sporting facilities, it has to have libraries and community facilities, and it has to have good transport links. We have to also make sure that the heritage sites are maintained, such as the amazing Fisher Stables that will hopefully become the permanent home of the memorial to Sandy, the only lighthouse that returned home. By working together, we can develop a vision for the site that meets everyone’s needs. Cr Gina Huynh River Ward

Beach rental wrecked By Goya Dmytryshchak A beachfront holiday rental in Altona was trashed at the weekend, with walls ripped out, windows broken and fittings smashed. The double-storey house on the Esplanade had been rented out on Booking.com for $473 a night. A neighbour, who asked not to be named, said a loud party had started Saturday night. “At one stage it was very noisy and a police car came past … they stopped outside the house but I don’t think they went inside. “I woke up at sunrise and there was more noises in the place. I saw a police car had just arrived and that’s when I saw they were all Africans and some of them started to disperse and go home … but a number stayed behind. “I went back to bed and there was more smashing and smashing. “Eventually, some of them came outside and they argued beside the house … I think eight of them were arguing amongst themselves, all the males. And then there was more smashing and eventually they all disappeared.” Damage to the four-bedroom home includes smashed windows, fittings, objects and furniture vandalised, plaster ripped off and doors torn apart. Altona Meadows resident Fran Brown said she drove past about 8.30am and saw a number of people in the middle of the road. “There were some up on the balcony throwing things over the balcony,” she said. “I reckon I saw a chair at one stage. “Some were sitting on the footpath smoking bongs.” Star Weekly visited the property on Sunday afternoon as several police officers and the owner’s representative arrived to assess the damage.

The owner’s representative said the property had been rented out on Saturday night. “I feel very bad now,” she said. “I think I’m sick now. I just feel very cold.” Star Weekly has seen footage showing seven

hooded youths running into the property at dawn. Police urge anyone with information about the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

The unsuccessful fight to save a giant oak tree from destruction in Footscray has become a rallying point for the protection of significant trees in Maribyrnong. The oak tree, understood to be more than 120 years old, was completely removed last Friday despite an urgent request to the state planning minister to place an interim protection order on it. The minister last week argued it wasn’t up to the state government to “bail out” councils who hadn’t taken appropriate steps to protect their significant trees. Lesley Walker, a neighbour who campaigned to save the tree, said a crane was used for the last of the tree’s removal. “It would be great to see council and community creating guidelines,” she said. Almost 600 people have signed a petition calling for stronger protection for Maribyrnong’s significant trees. Maribyrnong council did not respond to requests for comment. Benjamin Millar

Drivers ignore warnings

Drug charges for Mexicans

By Goya Dmytryshchak and Benjamin Millar

Two Mexican men have been charged after about 300 kilograms of cocaine packed in pallets of cocoa powder was seized in Altona. The men, aged 33 and 34, have been charged with importing the drug haul, which has an estimated street value of $105 million. The charges follow a joint investigation by the Victorian Joint Organised Crime Taskforce, made up of Australian Federal Police, Australian Border Force, Victoria Police and the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission. Investigators said the 34-year-old man arrived in Melbourne from Los Angeles earlier this month. Australian Border Force officers allege a quantity of cocaine was found in the man’s possession. Police subsequently seized a consignment labelled as “coffee and cocoa powder” from an Altona business. It allegedly concealed 300 kilograms of cocaine. The pair were arrested after search warrants were executed on Wednesday in Port Melbourne and Balaclava. Both have been charged with importation of a commercial quantity of border controlled drugs. The 33-year-old has also been charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of border controlled drugs. AFP Commander John Beveridge said the investigation required significant co-operation between Australia and Mexico.

Repeated warnings not to drive in floodwater are still not sinking in, with at least two cars caught in flash floods during the weekend deluge. It took Metropolitan Fire Brigade crews about half an hour to rescue a young driver from his car after he drove into floodwater at Altona ford, where Altona Road meets Racecourse Road, on Sunday. Hobsons Bay SES unit controller Craig MacCallum said barricades were subsequently placed at the site.

“The warnings go out from the SES every time there’s heavy rains: do not walk, ride or drive through floodwater.” Hobsons Bay SES received about 20 calls for assistance in the first three days of summer, mainly for leaking roofs.

In a separate incident, a luxury sports car became stranded in a flooded underpass in Footscray on Saturday. Police were called to Victoria Street when a Maserati became stuck while attempting to pass through water pooled beneath the railway underpass at Middle Footscray station about 5pm. The car was unable to make it through the notorious flooding spot despite the Maserati logo being based on the trident held by Neptune, the god of freshwater and the sea. Another crossing notorious for flooding, the Merton Street underpass in Altona Meadows, was blocked off as Laverton Creek rose. “I think people just don’t realise how deep the water is and how fast it’s flowing,” Mr MacCallum said. “A car will float in 15 centimetres of water.

Hearts set on marriage By Goya Dmytryshchak A Williamtown couple is hoping marriage equality legislation will enable them to marry before one of them “leaves this lifetime”. Cas Willow, who has been with her partner Heather Richards for 17 years, is receiving palliative care for breast cancer that has metastasised to her brain. Until recently, Ms Willow, 53, continued to work at her Williamstown counselling and clinical hypnotherapy practice with her partner. She has since used her skills to help other patients at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. “A lot of people in palliative focus on dying and that’s not helpful or useful,” Ms Willow said. “They call it end of life – well, I’m calling it transition. Getting married beforehand … I mean, that’s just absolutely fantastic and spectacular. “It’s not just about getting married – it’s about the equal rights that should have already been there. If we can get that happening before I pass, it gives us that equality that everybody’s struggled for years to get.” Ms Richards said most people, when they wanted to marry, traditionally needed to ask the father of the bride. “We had to ask 22 million people and wait for them to vote on it, then wait for the politicians to pass it as law while we wait, hope and pray that the amazing medical team at Peter Mac can keep Cas alive long enough for it to happen,” she said. Ms Willow hopes to release “Living Life” affirmation cards, which are about living in the now and being present, as part of her legacy. A friend has set up a GoFundMe campaign to help the couple live life to the fullest. Details: gofundme.com/ourbeautifulcas

Tunnel backflip bid fuels anger A residents lobby group has slammed a move to have Hobsons Bay council backflip on its official opposition to the West Gate Tunnel project. Cr Tony Briffa last month successfully moved to officially oppose the project, expressing anger at increased freight traffic, especially in Millers Road, and the effect of diesel fumes on resident health. But Hobsons Bay chief executive Chris Eddy has since received notice from a councillor that there will be a move to reverse the council’s official opposition at the December 12 council meeting. Don’t Destroy Millers Road spokesman Chris Dunlevy said he was disappointed the council could now rescind its official opposition to the project. “We believe that the community in enormous numbers, the vast majority of the community, do not support this project and have wanted council to oppose it for a very long time,” he said. “We think our position would have been a lot stronger from day one if they had opposed it. “We think that the time for sitting back and doing nothing and asking politely is well and truly over.” In a statement on Friday, mayor Angela Altair said the council would continue to lobby the state government on key priorities, including making Grieve Parade the preferred truck route instead of Millers Road.

Ship unloading has resumed at the Coode Island terminals after workers returned to the site following snap industrial action. Stop-work action was taken to highlight plans to cut staffing levels, which workers argued would have elevated the risk of a major catastrophe involving chemicals stored at the site, putting Yarraville, Footscray and Newport residents at risk.

A forum on art, disability and helping service providers become more inclusive will be held in Footscray next year thanks to a $10,000 funding windfall. Footscray Community Arts Centre’s ArtLife Intersections Forum and Exhibition received the money as part of the State Trustees Australia Foundation Grassroots Grant program. Hannah Murphy-Walsh, the creative producer organising the event, said the forum will bring together people with perceived disability, including culturally and linguistically diverse artists, the arts sector and disability service providers. “We want to look at how we change how we are talked about so it includes disabled voices,” she said.

Ms Murphy-Walsh said the event will be a chance to discover experiences of people with disability and look at the role art can play in exploring the identities that reflect the diversity of Melbourne’s west. The public forum will be recorded and resources will be put online to help inform future discussion, particularly around the National Disability Insurance Scheme. State Trustees executive general manager Melanie Lewis said the organisation is pleased to be able to support the forum and exhibition. “It’s inspiring to see the great work that these grassroots organisations do with this funding,” she said.

Trump mural cover-up

Council tick for park building

By Benjamin Millar

Other street artists have also experienced censorship by the council. Last year, the council threatened to fine and prosecute a business in West Footscray after street artist Lushsux painted a mural of then-US presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a skimpy swimsuit. In 2015, the council painted over a “No Paid Parking in Yarraville” message in a mural by Yarraville street artist Heesco. Maribyrnong planning services director

Nigel Higgins said Rudd’s Trump mural contravened the Graffiti Prevention Act 2007. “The request to alter or remove the mural was due to it being offensive and not because of the political statement expressed,” he said. The act specifically allows graffiti that is “reasonable political comment”. The council did not clarify why the mural was considered offensive or who decides what constitutes offensive graffiti.

A five-storey apartment building will be built on the edge of Footscray Park following approval by Maribyrnong council. The council has given the green light to Toorak-based developer Felsink Pty Ltd to proceed with the 24-apartment project, which has scaled down from the seven-storey development it initially sought to build on a carpark at 2B Ballarat Road. Neighbours in the adjacent Pioneer Hotel redevelopment sought to block the project in VCAT because it initially proposed access via their property, but Frank Perry of Perry Town Planning, representing the objectors, said tweaks to the design had appeased the residents. Felsink director John Osbourne had been granted approval in the 1990s to build 36 apartments on the 1845-built Pioneer Hotel provided he also built a “multi-purpose public facility” on adjoining Crown land within a decade,or forfeit the carpark land to the council. He submitted several proposals that either lapsed or were rejected by the council. After the 10 years, the council laid claim to the carpark site, but in 2010 Supreme Court Justice David Habersberger found the council erred in rejecting the final proposal, ruling that the developer could retain the carpark land despite the “multi-purpose public facility” never being built.

Maribyrnong council has sparked another street art censorship controversy, this time involving an image of Donald Trump. BiGfiSh design and fabrication studio in Footscray recently commissioned Yarraville artist Van T Rudd to create the mural after studio head Alfons van Maanen was impressed by a smaller version of the work. The mural depicted protestors throwing rocks at an army tank topped by the face of US president Donald Trump, drawing on iconic images of Palestinian youth throwing rocks at approaching Israeli army tanks. Mr van Maanen received a call from the council insisting the mural had to go. “I have always been a fan of Van’s art, which is political and out-there,” Mr van Maanen said. “So I commissioned Van to do the mural, but our landlord is council, and I got a phone call from council saying they were concerned about it and it needs to be removed.” Mr van Maanen said he could appreciate the council’s position, but didn’t want it to obliterate the work entirely, so a white square was painted over Mr Trump’s face. Rudd said it’s not the first time his work had been targeted by the council, a situation he hadn’t faced anywhere else in Melbourne. In May, Maribyrnong council censored another of Rudd’s artworks, a mural depicting a bulldog wearing a Western Bulldogs football guernsey urinating on One Nation Senator Pauline Hanson. Council staff painted over Senator Hanson’s face. Earlier this year, the council painted over another political mural that a property owner had asked Rudd to paint on their fence facing on to Cruickshank Park in Yarraville. It featured Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Park plan a green dream By Benjamin Millar A new basketball court, adventure playground, barbecues and extra trees are all in the pipeline for West Footscray’s Hansen Reserve. A draft master plan for the suburb’s largest open space, incorporating community input, will go out for further feedback before a final plan is adopted next year. The 10-hectare reserve currently contains playing fields, sporting facilities, informal recreation space and a basic playground. The Maribyrnong Open Space Strategy lists improvements to the site as a very high priority, to help meet demand. Consultation undertaken in June and July prompted 231 responses to an online survey and three written submissions, including a proposal from the Western Riders to re-establish a velodrome at the site. The master plan aims to maintain the sporting focus while improving landscaping and pedestrian access through the reserve and provide more opportunities for children’s play. The council’s planning services director Nigel Higgins told last week’s council meeting that the velodrome was not considered a suitable option but the council has been investigating alternative sites including Quarry Park in Footscray. Mayor Cuc Lam said the community had provided valuable feedback that has been incorporated into the design in the form of improved pedestrian access and more trees. Cr Simon Crawford said Hansen Reserve is an important space for the community. “To date it hasn’t had the focus that some of the other reserves have had.” Cr Catherine Cumming said the existing playground was looking “a bit tired” and in need of a lift, along with other improvements.

New direction for Due West The Due West Festival will return next November following the runaway success of the festival’s first outing. The inaugural Due West: Immersive Arts Festival was hastily convened in August in the wake of the surprise demise of the 20-year-old Big West Festival. Maribyrnong council spent $85,000 on the festival, a figure matched by the state government through Creative Victoria. While the three-week festival was deemed a success, suggestions have been made to secure its future. These include tightening it into a 10-day festival, moving it to November and building the festival around a central hub with a handful of satellite events. Maribyrnong councillors last week voted to lock in $85,000 in annual funding for the festival for the next three years, on the proviso Creative Victoria also matched or exceeded the amount. A council officer’s report on the festival noted that the closure of Big West had left a gap in the festival calendar. “In particular the Festival City program was without a dedicated arts festival.” Cr Mia McGregor praised the organisers of Due West for bringing together almost 300 artists and attracting 10,000 audience members. “This was an artist-focused festival, it was localised, low-budget and it took a lot of courage for the council to step in and try something,” she said.

Wall said the council sincerely apologises to the artists who created Disability Pride. “It was created for One Night in Footscray, an event which aimed to encourage journeys through central Footscray, its creative spaces and highlight the work of local artists and makers.” Mr Wall said the council will be meeting with its graffiti contractors to review procedures. “Again, we sincerely apologise to Ms McFarlane and all the artists involved in the installation. We fully support their work and all that it represented, and are embarrassed by this unfortunate mistake.”

Maribyrnong council has “sincerely apologised” for an embarrassing blunder in which its graffiti contractors tore down a street artwork created by a team of people and artists living with disability. Seddon artist Larissa MacFarlane was left devastated by the removal of the Disability Pride artwork, commissioned as part of the One Night in Footscray celebrations held just over a week ago. More than 40 people and artists with disability spent hundreds of hours installing the paste-up art work on the Footscray Exchange building on Nicholson Street as part of the event, co-presented by Maribyrnong council and Victoria University. An accomplished artist with an acquired brain injury who is known for her paste-ups of handstands, MacFarlane told Star Weekly she first noticed the art had been stripped off the walls on Monday. She said the artwork had been pasted up with the blessing of building owner Telstra, which had even arranged for the cleaning of the wall beforehand to create a blank canvas. MacFarlane said she has been left appalled, devastated and shaking with horror at the “blatant act of contempt” that she said epitomises the way that people with disabilities are treated in Australia. “Many people involved in this artwork, shared that this was the first time they had felt pride in themselves. “For some people it was their first time identifying as disabled, because they already know the deeply entrenched and discriminating ableism in this country.” Maribyrnong council chief executive Stephen

Caltex now jet set

Pet racket link in Geelong raid

By Goya Dmytryshchak Caltex Australia’s move further into aviation fuel has taken off as it opened a new jet fuel tank at its Newport terminal on Friday as part of a $75 million upgrade. Chief executive Julian Segal said the upgrade would increase reliability of the supply chain, including supplying fuel to Melbourne Airport. The upgrade includes a 15 -million litre unleaded fuel tank, a new access point so heavy vehicles can avoid a black spot on Douglas Parade and a truck-loading bay which reduces the average truck turnaround time. The project took 18 months and involved 130 workers at peak times, 14 different construction companies and more than 200 suppliers of labour, materials and equipment. Caltex head of fuels and infrastructure, Louise Warner said the jet fuel tank would hold 25 million litres. “That’s enough jet fuel to fly an A380 around the world 35 times,” she said. “We’ve also made upgrades to our equipment on the site to improve the reliability and flexibility of our jet fuel supply chain, which is really critical for the growing market we have at Melbourne Airport.” A public art competition to decorate the jet fuel tank was also announced on Friday. Local artists are being invited to submit a design that shows “life being easier” and celebrates the area surrounding the terminal. The artwork will be visible from the road and the West Gate Bridge. The competition will be judged by a panel including Hobsons Bay mayor Angela Altair and The Substation director Brad Spolding. Entries can be submitted until August 31, 2018.

A Geelong house has been raided in relation to an alleged pet-selling racket with links to Hobsons Bay. Star Weekly reported in October that scammers were obtaining animals by deception and selling domestic cats as special breeds, with many of the cats infected with the deadly parvovirus. Western Suburbs Cat and Kitten Rescue founder Nathan Miles said the suspected ringleader was selling cats from several premises, including one in Newport. Mr Miles became aware of the scam after a carer spotted a cat his group had adopted out being listed for sale online. After issuing a scam alert on Facebook, he was inundated with victims coming forward, many of whom had bought cats that subsequently required veterinary treatment or had to be euthanised. RSPCA major investigations head Lisa Calleja said inspectors attended a Geelong property with Victoria Police and Geelong council officers on November 29. “There were 32 animals that were assessed on the property, including four dogs, two cats and 26 kittens,” she said. “Notices to comply were issued by RSPCA Victoria in relation to the living conditions of the animals, the provision of water and animal health. This is an ongoing investigation and RSPCA Victoria inspectors will continue to follow up on compliance.”

Restaurant told to tone it down By Benjamin Millar A proposed Footscray eatery has been forced to take steps to be “less attractive” to visitors. Maribyrnong council had approved plans for a 150-patron restaurant at the Dream Factory on the edge of the Maribyrnong River. But the Port of Melbourne challenged the decision before the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, arguing the proposed restaurant could put at risk patrons who do not work within the precinct. Its concerns were based on the proposal

being sited 400 metres to the northwest of the Coode Island major hazard facility (MHF) area, placing it within the WorkSafe-defined Outer Planning Advisory Area that surrounds the potentially hazardous area. The port argued that restaurant patrons would not be familiar with safety procedures if an emergency were to occur and people in the outdoor seating area might attempt to flee rather than shelter in place within the building. It was also concerned that the approval would become a precedent that would encourage similar uses within the “at risk” area.

The permit applicant and Maribyrnong council agreed to amend the application to change the use from a 150-patron restaurant to a 110-seat cafe with shorter opening hours, no external seating, only serving staff working within the building on Saturdays and staying closed on Sundays. “These amendments will make the cafe much less attractive to visitors to the area,” said VCAT presiding member Geoffrey Rundell. “Its external presence in the area will be very limited, particularly to the public walking/ cycling trail along the Maribyrnong River.

“Most patrons would be familiar with the safety risk and emergency procedures in a MHF event as they would be tenants of the building or their clients.” The applicant has also agreed to prepare an Emergency Management Plan that includes warnings, procedures and the installation of protective glazing. The restaurant proposal was already significantly downsized from an earlier application for a 750-patron licensed “community food hall” featuring a permanent bar and a rotating roster of food trucks.

When times are tough When the going gets tough, the tough get reading. A chapter of the Tough Guy Book Club has opened in Williamstown and founder Steve Bruce said it was attracting strong interest. Each month (except January), the guys meet up to “engage in bare-knuckled conversation about the manly classics of contemporary literature”. “It’s a book club that is for men who like to think,” Mr Bruce said. “It’s called the Tough Guy Book Club because we read about guys that are doing it tough as well as guys that are tough, and it’s an opportunity for guys to meet other guys on a level that has nothing to do with work. “That’s actually one of the rules of the club – that work is not meant to be mentioned or talked about.” The club, started by a Brunswick man, has grown to more than 20 chapters Australia-wide

and three in the US. Mr Bruce said it was actually about much more than books. “We also give guys the opportunity to talk about things,” he said. “It’s an opportunity to touch on men’s mental health, to give guys the opportunity to just have a chat. “We’ve had guys that have opened up and have talked about things that they wouldn’t normally talk about, whether that be upbringing, things that have happened in their life, things that they’re going through now, problems with partners, those sorts of things.” Tough Guy Book Club meets 7pm on the first Wednesday of the month (except January) at Customs House Hotel in Williamstown. Goya Dmytryshchak Lucas Earl, Steve Bruce, James Barry and Tony Read get stuck into their books. (Marco De Luca)

overwhelming, and to see and hear of the joy it brings to families and people of all ages gives me an overwhelming feeling. We recently had a lovely local lady pass away from cancer, and at her service it was mentioned she had made her way to the Festival of Lights and adorned the dance floor with the last dance of her life and expressed how thoroughly she had enjoyed the moment. What can be a better feeling than knowing how happy we made her in her final moments?

I have been living in West Footscray along with my family for over 30 years. My father migrated from India to West Footscray and worked in Olex Cables, I came over when I was three years old. I went to Scots’ Kindergarten in Essex Street, attended Footscray West Primary School, went to a private high school in Werribee and came back to Victoria University in Footscray Park to finish my business degree. I was passed down the family business of Bharat Traders by my parents, who dealt with spices and other Indian products. It started in Barkly Street in 1991 and has since expanded in food supply and various other products.

What are you hoping these events bring to the local community? They bring us together and I hope they make everyone in the community realise that we are not all that different to each other and enjoy a lot of the same things in life. I hope they also draw lots of people into the area from other areas, so they get to see we are more than just “West-of Footscray”.

What do you love most about the area? I love my area because it’s home to me. I feel comfortable with everything – the atmosphere, the ambience, the people. I’ve seen a lot of changes, mostly positive.

Multiculturalism, diversity, open-minded and accepting human beings and even most of the pets. Do you have a favourite local place or places? I have adored all the food places that have come, gone and stayed over the years and these days

They’re the inventors of handy little beauties like the Garject: the garlic press that scrapes itself clean and even ejects the garlic peel. And let’s not forget the Spink: the drink holder that sticks to the table, so you won’t spill your coffee! With a lot of us getting into Christmas baking mode, it would be remiss of me not to mention the Supoon. It’s a cooking spoon with a flat squeegee tip and flexible sides, allowing you to scrape your bowl clean. It has a clever handle design like a built-in spoon rest, so the Supoon sits up off your bench all by itself. It retails for about $14.95 and comes in a range of vibrant colours.

For those keen to whip up some hand-made treats as Christmas gifts (but are a tad time poor), chocolate-coated pretzels are the perfect cheat’s solution. Just buy a packet or two of baked wheat pretzels, dip them in melted chocolate and cover them in sprinkles. Make sure you gently shake off the excess chocolate and let them dry on trays lined with baking paper. If you want to get really Christmassy, dip them in white chocolate and sprinkle with crushed candy canes or red, green and white 100s and 1000s. Box them up and you’re all done! To get yourself inspired, check out these festive pretzels from www.thefeedfeed.com

FOOD REVIEW STARWEEKLY.COM.AU

CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir feels at home with food delivery As is clear from even the most cursory look at the CTS archives, we much prefer hitting the road and eating out to eating in. We have such a mind-boggling treasury of great food within short journey, the food is always better straight from the kitchen, and we often get to meet the people who make it. Before Uber and the somewhat earlier whizz-bang delivery apps, we did sometimes indulge in home delivery. Pizzas from Motorino, for instance. But truth be told, though pizzas seem to have been pretty much a foundation food when it comes to home-delivered food, we found the process really did affect the quality. But now there’s Uber – and like many people we know, we are occasionally using it. Some are using it way more than occasionally! What is the attraction, over and beyond the other delivery apps? The app, of course, is very slick and the photos gorgeous. But most important, I think, is the geographically restricted catchment. Obviously, this diminishes Uber for some who lack coverage. But for us and many others, we must choose local – and that’s a fine thing. We have worked at finding what works for us – what is affordable, what we actually want to eat, what mirrors as closely as possible a restaurant experience once the food is plated. For starters, we just won’t be doing fish and chips (despite some happy experiences with Dough! in Newport) or hamburgers. Just not good travel potential going on there.

We’ve had chicken biryani from Sankranti, Dosa Corner and Spicy Chef and some fine Vietnamese from Phu Vinh in Footscray. But the best we’ve found is Ethiopian. So far, only two Ethiopian eateries service our area – Ras Dashen and Abesha. We’ve ordered beyaynetu veg combos from both and enjoyed them, a key being that the injera is already moist and kinda soggy so the delivery process simply can’t be too bad. But in each case, the lentils (two kinds) and Ethiopian veg of carrots, spuds and beetroot have been delivered in the same container. This is no biggie, really, as the dishes soon merge served on a platter. However, last night I twigged that, with Ras Dashen at least, there is another way – the meat mains can be customised. So for our Tuesday’s dinner we had lamb tibs ($13), one extra piece of injera ($1), a small serve of both lentils ($3 – bargain!) and khey whot (spicy beef stew, $6) and side salad ($3.50). Initially, we thought we may have over-ordered and not got enough injera. We were wrong on both counts. What a magnificent feast it was! And at $31.50 (including $5 delivery), very little different from what we would’ve paid had we got in the car!

SPORT Seagulls’ great flying toward new records extension that will see him remain with Williamstown for an eighth season. Charleston has been a mainstay of the Seagull defence, notching up his 100th game last season. The small defender averaged 11.1 disposals and 4.8 tackles per game in this year. It is also a busy recruiting period for Williamstown’s new VFL women’s team. The Seagulls have raided the Western Jets’ youth girls team to bring in Kayla Koropeckyj and Emma Ludolff. Koropeckyj came into the spotlight while playing local football for Wyndhamvale. In three seasons with the Falcons, Koropeckyj, a Victorian under-16 representative, played 41 games for a return of 76 goals. Ludolff is no stranger to goals, either, booting nine in 13 games with Caroline Springs last season. She plays most of her football on the wing. Lance Jenkinson

Rain on Eagles’ parade By Lance Jenkinson Yarraville and Hoppers Crossing were both left feeling a little short-changed. The pair of desperate one-win sides had to settle for a draw after the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association ordered all games to be called off on Saturday due to Melbourne’s stormy weather. It is a pity because the game appeared set for a thrilling climax, with the Eagles defending 158 and Hoppers Crossing making a stuttering start to be in trouble at 3-20. Yarraville captain-coach Matthew Love believes cricket fans were robbed of a potential grandstand finish with the game “in the balance” approaching day two. “The forecast leading up to the weekend wasn’t great, so it was no surprise that our games got cancelled,” Love said. “Our bowlers were well on top last week, so we were pretty keen to have a crack at them. “They would’ve backed themselves to go close to winning the game.” It added further frustration to Yarraville’s season. The Eagles have just one win from five matches with two draws thrown in. With their opponent in a similar position, it was a missed opportunity for both. “If one of the teams got the points, it’s your classic double points game, but it wasn’t to be,” Love said. The positive to come out of the game for Yarraville was the performance of opening batsman David Morgan who continued his impressive recent form with 90, including 12 fours. Last season, Morgan played in the firsts, seconds and thirds, before settling into the seconds and scoring 83 in the grand final win over Box Hill. After 47 in round four and just missing out on the century this round, it appears as though Morgan is close to securing a first XI position. “He’s someone who’s working really hard on his game and has forced his way into the first XI because of a weight of runs from last year,” Love said. “He played a bit in the twos, winning the premiership last year, so to see him step up and bat well with 90 and 40-odd the week before was just fantastic. “We’ve got a lot of guys who are in his boat in the lower grades that are trying to do the same, so he’s a good role model for them.” It was a double whammy weekend for Love. He was supposed to represent the VSDCA against the Victorian Country Cricket League in a representative game on Sunday, but that

have every reason to be proud at the Spotswood Football Club. Yet another junior product has advanced to the elite level, with Lachlan Fogarty drafted by Geelong with pick 22 at the national draft. Fogarty’s older brother (of four), Michael, was on the Footscray VFL list in recent years. Their uncle is current Spotswood assistant coach Grant Smith, himself a more than handy player with Williamstown, playing in the 1986 and 1990 premiership teams. Spotswood has four current players in the AFL, with Fogarty joining Callan Ward (GWS captain), Bachar Houli (Richmond premiership player) and Connor Menadue (2017 Grand Final Sprint winner).

■ Laura

Giles is a remarkable athlete. Her stellar netball career was acknowledged last week when she was inducted into the Hoppers Crossing Sports Club Hall of Fame. Her achievements include district and Victorian representation at many age levels and even being selected for Australia and being part of the World Champion team at the 2013 titles in South Africa. She has won numerous individual awards, including multiple best-and-fairest trophies, team of the year selection and many others. Team success has been equally forthcoming, with premierships at junior and senior level. Laura, 25, is the first female to receive the hall of fame honour in the club’s 25-year history.

■ Brody

Mihocek completed yet another rags to riches sports story when he was drafted to Collingwood as a mature-aged rookie. The gritty defender has been at Port Melbourne for the past two years and before that at Werribee. At 25, the Tasmanian had not given up hope that an AFL side would recognise his talent, determination and hard work, and he has deservedly landed at the elite level. His father, Jack, played 13 games for Essendon in the late ’70s, but will be a magpie man from now on.

■ The

Point Cook Bulldogs will certainly make their mark in their debut season in the WRFL if their recruiting is anything to go by. The latest signing is Barry Priest medallist Wayde Skipper. It has been a big week for the former Bulldog and Hawk, as he and wife Sally welcomed their second daughter, Frankie Carol. Skip will turn 35 before the first bounce of the 2018 season but is sure to be a big hit with the red, white and blue boys in division 2. Kevin Hillier

was also called off. Love is hopeful the game will be re-scheduled, so he can get the honour of captaining the association. “It’s a great privilege and an honour to be named captain as well,” he said. Yarraville will face fourth-placed Melton in a crucial Saturday-Sunday two-day game at the Yarraville Oval this weekend.

In other games, Altona will be looking for a way back into the top six when it hosts Kew at Grant Reserve. It will be a big occasion for second-placed Williamstown against Preston at the Williamstown Cricket Ground as it will celebrate Brenton Hodges’ 200th VSDCA first XI game.

Ben Jolley is back at Williamstown and on the verge of a record-breaking season. (Shawn Smits)

Williamstown stalwart Ben Jolley will be back in the club’s blue and gold for an 11th straight Victorian Football League season. The tough-as-nails onballer is one of the greats of the modern era for his longevity, inspirational leadership and on-field impact for the Seagulls. Jolley is coming off a season in which he notched his 250th VFL game and 200th club game. Over that span, the 31-year-old has taken home the Gerry Callahan Medal for the Seagulls’ best-and-fairest on no fewer than four occasions. He is on the verge of becoming the Seagulls’ all-time games record holder. He entered the off season eight matches shy of record holder Troy West. Jolley is also eighth on the VFL’s all-time games played list. “Jols” played 18 of a possible 20 games this year, proving that he has plenty left in the tank.

Altona takes top spot after Mentone’s costly error Altona has moved to the Bowls Victoria premier division summit in the most unorthodox fashion. The As were the major beneficiaries of a penalty handed down to Mentone for using an unregistered player. Mentone was deducted all of its points and tumbled to the bottom of the ladder, leaving the As to freely swoop on top spot. A’s co-coach Ben Loughlin was not exactly shouting from the rooftops about his team’s new spot on the ladder. “It’s a little bit bittersweet to be honest,” he said. “It’s good to be up there and we win out of the re-allocation of points, but I suppose you’d rather win every game and get up there on your merits.” Altona has been one of the form sides of the competition after a slow start.

Dane McKinnon is one of three Altona players selected for Victoria’s five-test series against Tasmania this week. (Damjan Janevski)

The As opened up the season with just one win from the first three games, but had reeled off three wins over the next four games.

The only blemish for Altona in that time was a thrilling three-shot loss to Mentone, but they ended up getting the points from that game as a result of Mentone’s penalty. “I think we’ve won four games on our merits and they were four really good wins,” Loughlin said. “We’ve had three close losses against good sides and under 10 shots all of them, so we’ve been in every game and we know we’re good enough to compete with everyone. “It would just be nice to win some more of those close games instead of being on the wrong side of the ledger.” Altona knows its general form needs to improve in the second half of the season if it is to keep hold of its lofty position and challenge for the premiership. The As are aiming for a top-two finish and it

Dogs depth on display Footscray Baseball Club has depth in its women’s ranks not seen for more than a decade. The Bulldogs have three top women’s teams all with finals pencilled into the agenda. “It’s awesome the depth we have at the club,” Bulldogs president Lynn Fraser said. “This year is the first year in about 10 years that we’ve had three women’s teams at the club. “We’ve actually got teams in the women’s competitions in divisions 1, 2 and 3. “Our ones are sitting in third spot, our twos are third or fourth depending on results and our thirds are undefeated on top.” Footscray’s strong women’s program is a result of years of hard work. The Bulldogs have fostered women’s baseball since 1994 and the late-coming clubs are going to them for advice on how to set up their own programs. While Fraser is proud of her club’s dedication, recent developments have made it easier. “Sports and Recreation Victoria is putting a lot more funding into women’s and junior sports programs, so I think that’s what is helping a lot of the women’s sports, not just baseball,” she said.

“Over the last 12 months there has been a working group through Baseball Victoria that has worked on how we attract and retain women’s players in baseball. “In any women’s sport, it’s hard to retain players because they get married, have children, have a career and that sort of thing, so they come in and out of sport.” One of the ideas from the Baseball Victoria workshops was to force all division 1 men’s baseball clubs to have a women’s team. Set to become a rule from next season, that has resulted in a concerted push by some of those clubs to get an early start in setting up women’s teams. “Some of these division 1 men’s clubs have eight to 10 men’s teams, so you’ve got girlfriends, wives, cousins, aunts, nieces and all sorts, well, you only need nine to 11 of those girls to make a team, so how about we make it a criteria for the division 1 men’s clubs to have at least one women’s team?” Fraser said. “We’ve already seen it working, we’ve got an extra six to seven teams this season.” Where Footscray excels by having three teams is that it can cater for players of all skill levels. Those players wanting more of the fun aspect can play in the division 3 team, while

is well within reach, but they are yearning for a little more consistency in the close games. The big local derby against YarravilleFootscray is on the agenda on home soil this Saturday at Civic Parade. Loughlin said the battle of the two western suburbs clubs holds historical importance. “There’s been a lot of players go from club to club over the years and we’re only down the road from each other,” he said. “Every time we play Yarraville-Footscray, it’s very competitive and it’s a big rivalry.” Meanwhile, Altona stars Loughlin, Nathan Wilson and Dane McKinnon will represent Victoria in a five test series against Tasmania at the Deer Park Bowls Club starting today. The state series will run through till Friday.

those with ambitions to play at a higher level against tougher opposition can scrap for a spot in division 1. It is not easy to get into the Bulldogs top side. Their team has current Australian player Morgan Doty, two Victorian representatives and Australian squad members Britt Cedelland and Abbey McLellan and Canadian import Amanda Asay in the ranks. Asay has been to three Women’s Baseball World Cups with Canada, claiming a silver and two bronze, and was also part of a silver medal-winning Pan American Games team. “This is the second time we’ve had her out here,” Fraser said. “She’s been instrumental in our coaching program and juniors. “She was this year named as the No. 7 top player in Canadian baseball of all time and that’s men and women players included.” Footscray is third on the division 1 ladder with five wins and three losses. The Bulldogs game against Doncaster away on Saturday was called off because of poor weather. Next up for the Dogs is a tough assignment against top side Springvale on home soil at Benbow Street in Yarraville on Saturday.

Williamstown Wolves were in an unfamiliar position. They entered Sunday’s game against Malvern Braves on the back of their first loss in their Baseball Victoria summer league division 2 campaign. While the Wolves saw their chance of an undefeated season disappear with a shock mid-week defeat to Doncaster Dragons, they were back to their brilliant ways in a 13-0 mercy rule win over the Braves away on Sunday. The big win was very satisfying for Wolves playing president Daniel Chircop. “It was good to see us bounce back – we looked like the team that had played the first 12 games,” he said. The Wolves would have loved to have kept the streak alive, but Chircop feels the loss will allow his team to focus on what matters. “It’s good to get the pressure off,” he said. “You’d hate to drop one right at the end and lose a bit of confidence and carry that into finals.” Williamstown was in total control from the outset in the win over Malvern. Import pitcher Jonathan Mottay laid the foundations with five scoreless innings. But it was not all smooth sailing for Mottay, who twice had to negotiate none out, bases loaded situations to keep the scoreboard free of Braves runs. “What makes him a good pitcher is that he’s never fazed, regardless of the situation,” Chircop said. “You wouldn’t know if he’s given up a grand slam or just struck out the side … and if you ask me, that’s more scary than someone who’s a bit fiery.” Sean Talbot threw an inning in relief and Aaron Green closed out the game with an inning before the mercy rule was applied. Williamstown’s batting turned heads. Player-coach Jarryd Rogers electrified the game with a three-run homer as part of a brilliant day in the batters box. Justin Gourlay was the other standout with four hits, but there was hardly a weak link in the Williamstown line-up. Williamstown will meet Malvern again in a mid-week clash at Greenwich Reserve tonight (Wednesday) from 6.30pm, followed by a home game against Ballarat City Brewers on Sunday. Newport Rams scored a 6-0 win over Essendon on the road at Boeing Reserve on Sunday. The Rams will face Sunshine Eagles in a two-game set this week, ending at KC White Reserve on Saturday.
