Relay’s royal welcome By Goya Dmytryshchak and Benjamin Millar History was made when the Queen’s Baton sailed into Williamstown on Saturday on its way to the opening ceremony of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games on April 4. The baton had journeyed from Docklands on a coxless quad and a Victorian water police vessel and finally on the tall ship Enterprize. On Gem Pier, Sunbury’s Hedley Elliott handed the baton to Maurie Tanian, past president of the Lions Club of Altona. Past Victorian Volunteer of the Year Patricia Insall handed the baton to philanthropist Hayden Raysmith, chairman of the Hobsons Bay Community Fund. Nathan Pellissier, who aims to represent Australia in table tennis at the Tokyo Paralympics in 2020, carried the baton along Williamstown’s coastline. Williamstown Swimming and Life Saving Club members formed a guard of honour for baton bearer Carol Fox, one of Australia’s first professional female lifeguards and head of Women Sport Australia. Among the youngest bearers were Taj Fazekas, who shares his Aboriginal culture among local sports clubs, and Alex Gatt who is living with spinal muscular atrophy and is an inspiration to others. The crowd cheered and ran alongside as the relay journeyed through Williamstown and Altona on its way to Footscray. The Footscray leg began at Whitten Oval and travelled through Footscray’s central shopping district and past Footscray town hall before making a grand entrance under the Saigon Welcome Arch. A community celebration was held at the Little Saigon Precinct featuring entertainment from local school children and Melbourne rock trio Kingswood.

Newport man dies after bar fight By Goya Dmytryshchak An Australian man who died after a bar brawl in Thailand has been identified by local media as Newport resident Benjamin Robb. Mr Robb, 42, was involved in a fight at the Ruby Club in Pattaya about 7.30pm local time on Friday, Pattaya News reported. Local media reported that he was knocked unconscious and appeared to have a seizure. American citizen Jose Manuel Polanco jnr, 43, initially fled but later handed himself in to police and remains in custody.

Mr Robb died in Pattaya Memorial Hospital about 3am the next day. The Ruby Club released a statement that said “an altercation lasting less than 20 seconds between two customers on Friday night resulted in one person taken to hospital with serious looking injuries, which sadly resulted in him passing away in the early hours of Saturday morning. “The other individual involved handed himself in to police and it is understood he is to remain in custody until a court appearance in 10 days or so.”

An Australian consular official said support was being provided to Mr Robb’s family. “The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade is providing consular assistance to the family of an Australian man who died in Thailand,” he said. “For privacy reasons we are unable to provide further details.”

Man faces weapons, theft charges A man asleep in a car in Williamstown North has allegedly been caught with counterfeit money, a tomahawk, flick knife and potentially dangerous tools. Police came across the sleeping driver in a stolen car in Macaulay Street about 11.50pm on Wednesday last week. A search of the vehicle allegedly uncovered the fake cash and weapons. The driver, a 23-year-old Burwood man, has been charged with 19 offences including car theft, weapons offences and handling stolen goods. Hobsons Bay Acting Inspector Jason Templar said extra officers were last week deployed across the west to detect and prevent crime. “Our proactive, intelligence-led patrols are deployed to deter and detect any antisocial or criminal behaviour,” he said. Extra bike and foot patrols have also been deployed across Hobsons Bay, including around Altona and Williamstown beaches. Sergeant Anthony Quirke said the patrols were part of Operation Tao, aimed at driving down crime in the area. “You’ll notice us around popular destinations in Hobsons Bay – at transport hubs, shopping centres, public parks and walking trails,” he said. “These patrols are in addition to the wider 24/7 police response in Hobsons Bay and all of Melbourne’s west.”

Betting is bound to be fierce on which creature will win by a whisker during a mouse-racing day to raise money for Altona City Soccer Club this month. Five rodents will compete in each race, with each mouse numbered and named. Club president Joe Tanti said the fastest mice would snare prize money for club members and friends. “I built a track and five of them race at a time,” he said. “We do a form guide and everything.” Behind the heart-pounding action is a serious cause. The Altona City clubrooms at Kim Reserve were broken into over Christmas, with intruders causing wanton damage to the facilities. “We are doing it a little bit tough at the moment,” Mr Tanti said. “Our facilities are not the best at the moment so we want to spend a bit of money on that. “They broke in Christmas Eve and just ripped the kitchen apart and the bar apart. “I don’t know what they were looking for … they just trashed the joint, so we’ve got a bit of stuff to fix up.” The mouse race day will be on Sunday, February 25, from 11.30am at Altona Bowling Club, 113 Civic Parade, Altona. Races will run from noon to 4pm with a free barbecue lunch at 1pm. No animals will be hurt during the day’s racing.

Truckie loses sentencing appeal By Goya Dmytryshchak An Altona North truck driver has lost a bid to reduce his minimum two-year jail term for a head-on collision that left an 18-year-old woman with catastrophic injuries. John Gurovski pleaded guilty to negligently causing serious injury, recording false or misleading work records, using a mobile phone while driving and failing to record information immediately after starting work. Last March, the 45-year-old was sentenced to three years’ jail with a two-year minimum and fined $17,000.

He appealed the sentence in the Supreme Court, arguing it was manifestly excessive and he should have received a community correction order. In February, 2016, Gurovski was driving a Freightliner prime mover B-double on the Calder Highway towards Mildura when he crossed onto the wrong side of the road and collided with the victim’s sedan. The woman suffered multiple fractures, degloving of an arm and thigh, brain damage, a partial finger amputation and her right arm was almost totally amputated. She was placed in a coma for 17 days.

In her victim impact statement, the victim said every day was a struggle due to pain and physical limitations and she could not work or engage in recreation. She said she felt “mentally drained, stressed, lonely and worthless”. On the day of the collision, Gurovski had started work at 5.26am, driving from Altona North to Noble Park North to load his truck. The court heard he had driven after only five and a half hours of sleep and had driven excessive hours with insufficient rest breaks and sleep for 20 days. From 8.57am until the time of the crash at 2.45pm, his longest break was seven minutes.

In their ruling, Justices Simon Whelan and Emilios Kyrou stated the sentencing judge was right to place importance on general deterrence. “The danger posed by drivers of heavy vehicles who are unable to properly control their vehicle due to limited sleep, inadequate rest breaks or other avoidable causes is grave,” they said. “The consequences for road users can be so catastrophic that a clear message must be conveyed that a conviction for the offence of negligently causing serious injury by driving will result in condign punishment.”

Author’s story rings true Growing up in Footscray, Demet Divaroren was an avid bookworm. Yet there was one story she never came across – her own upbringing as a Turkish Australian. Divaroren set out to create a story that rang true to her own multicultural childhood. The result – a novel called Living on Hope Street – last week was named the winner of the Young Adult category of the 2018 Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards. “I can’t wrap my head around it,” Divaroren said of the win. “It just feels like it’s happening to someone else, but it is very exciting.” Her love of books meant Divaroren always intended to work with words. “I was inspired to write through words and through other people’s stories in novels,” she said. “One day I just thought, ‘This is what I want to do, this is how I want to make people feel’.

“I like to work with identity and explore identity, especially in multicultural Australia, because there really is no one way of being Australian – our diversity is our strength.” Divaroren said she had seen some improvements in society’s understanding of young people from diverse backgrounds, but she said the panic around the so-called “African gang crisis” was quite damaging for innocent youth tarred with the same brush. “Regardless of background, we need a stronger dialogue, we need to be listening to what they’re experiencing,” she said. “I just feel like dialogue is everything, language is everything, so we really need to be careful how we speak to the youth and be careful that our language doesn’t alienate them and make them the ‘other’.” Benjamin Millar

Mill apartment gets green light By Goya Dmytryshchak Hobsons Bay council has approved an eight-storey, 62-dwelling apartment block in Williamstown following a statewide review of residential development near major hazard facilities. A decision on AVJennings’ plan for 3-39 Nelson Place, which is on the Port Phillip Woollen Mill site, had been deferred in December pending Planning Minister Richard Wynne signing off on the review. Mr Wynne last month accepted most of the recommendations of the review, including granting greater decision-making power to WorkSafe Victoria on developments near major hazard facilities (MHFs). There had been questions hanging over the Nelson Place site’s proximity to Mobil’s Point Gellibrand tank farm, but WorkSafe did not object to AVJennings’ proposed development. In a letter to the council dated January 24, 2018, WorkSafe head of hazardous industries and industry practice Michael Coffey said there was no objection, provided the applicant considered design measures to prevent or minimise exposure of occupants to hazards in the event of major incident at the tank farm. The letter stated “the design should include measures to prevent and/or minimise the potential projectile of shattered glass” and that an emergency management plan must also be developed with the local fire authority. A special planning committee of council, comprising mayor Angela Altair and councillors Colleen Gates and Jonathon

Marsden, approved the plan two-one, with Cr Marsden voting against. Cr Altair said the plan had been supported with a number of conditions consistent with the recommendations of the council’s planners and WorkSafe’s feedback. “We were comfortable that the conditions applied will achieve a quality residential outcome with safety being one of the principal considerations,” she said. “This development will add to the diversity of our housing stock in Williamstown. It’s giving people choice, allowing them to live in a great location and, importantly, allowing many locals to remain locals. “The applicant confirmed that nearly 50 per cent of purchasers so far have come from Williamstown, with many of the others from nearby suburbs.” To date, permits have been issued for 218 apartments and 74 townhouses on the mill site.

Vikings are on the hunt As Altona Football Club celebrates its centenary, the Vikings are sounding the siren for players. Altona Junior Football Club president Vito Rubino said the club, established in a Pier Street cafe in 1918, wanted to continue its proud tradition. It was started by James Duke, Dick Bloomberg and several Altona traders as a place for their returned servicemen sons. “Purple and Gold were the colors of their regiment,” Rubino said. “As a legacy of founding father of the club James Duke, two of his great-great-greatgrandsons currently play for the Altona Junior Football Club, and one for the Altona Football Club in the under-19s. “Similarly, there are others whose great-

great-grandfather played in the original team in 1918.” Rubino said the club is struggling to fill its under-14 team. “This was a premiership team from last season and we are desperate to keep this team together,” he said. “The positive environment our club offers will help them [players] deal with the challenges that they face as teenagers. “Another one of our teams that will be short on numbers is an under-18 girls’ team, which is a brand new team that we’re forming,” Rubino said.

Cycling works on a roll By Benjamin Millar Cyclists are counting their blessings following the completion of a key stretch of the long-promised Temple to Temple trail. A 1.2-kilometre section of cycle trail from Cranwell Reserve in Braybrook to the border with Brimbank is now open, bringing the trail along the Maribyrnong River a step closer to completion. Maribyrnong council has been working to build a continuous riverside trail linking the Heavenly Queen Temple in Footscray to the Quang Minh Temple in Braybrook.

The new extension joins up with 800 metres of trail running east from Cranwell Reserve to the pipe bridge near Medway Golf Club, finished in 2015. The stretch between the pipe bridge and the Waterford Green estate is the final link in the Maribyrnong to Braybrook section. Completion of the final stretch of the trail, along the riverside stretch of the Maribyrnong Defence Site, remains out of the council’s hands until a decision is made on the land’s future. The council has been pushing to fast-track the opening up of the riverfront stretch of the site to finish the trail. Mayor Cuc Lam said the trail has been a major project staged over the past three years. “It represents a milestone in the provision of green infrastructure which encourages people to walk and ride for commuting or recreational purposes, and better connects

open spaces along the river, and we thank the Quang Minh Temple for generously permitting the construction of part of the trail on their land.”

Police have arrested one man and are searching for his alleged accomplice after a cash register was stolen from a West Footscray milk bar. Police say two men, armed with a knife and a tomahawk, entered the Palmerston Street milk bar about 6.15pm on January 24. Senior Constable Melissa Seach said one of the bandits jumped the counter and stole the cash register after the attendant locked herself in a rear room. The thieves were last seen running east on Alma Street. Investigators from the Altona North Embona Armed Robbery Taskforce arrested a 37-year-old man at a West Footscray house about 6pm Friday. The other alleged offender remains on the run. Investigations are ongoing. Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at www. crimestoppersvic.com.au Benjamin Millar

Take the next step to stress less By Benjamin Millar Simple steps such as taking a stroll at lunchtime can help workers cut stress and anxiety as effectively as prescription medication, according to new research out of Victoria University. A study by VU academic Professor Max de Courten evaluating 2000 participants in a number of different workplaces showed people who took the 10,000 step challenge and walked together with their colleagues enjoyed an upswing in their mental health.

“It was one of those things that you hear people say, but nobody has actually quantified it and done the research in a large scale setting,” Professor de Courten said. “It’s very much live research, not in a lab.” Professor de Courten, director of the Centre for Chronic Disease, said the ‘Happy Feet’ study found stress dropped by nine per cent, depression reduced by eight per cent and anxiety was down by five per cent for people who walked regularly. The findings from the 100-day program open further questions about the long-term benefits

of walking as a release from work pressures. “We know our society has to do something to reduce stress and anxiety and things like that in the workplace,” Professor de Courten said. “What happens on day 101 or day 200 or a year later? We think there is likely to be a spill-over effect over time, so something we

would like to do is go back a year later and see what the impacts have been.” The study, published in BMC Psychiatry, noted the annual global costs of mental health problems were estimated at almost four trillion Australian dollars and expected to reach 7.4 trillion by 2030, placing mental illness costs above that of cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. “We all realise mental health issues in the population and the working population are getting ever bigger,” Professor de Courten said. “We need to do something about it.”

Lakes through the lens Friends of Newport Lakes is hosting a photography competition to capture the wonders of the “urban oasis”. The 33-hectare reserve was created on the site of a former bluestone quarry and rubbish tip. Friends president Lorraine Harrison said the contest was to encourage people to think about the flora, fauna and landscape on the reserve. “It’s to encourage ownership of the lakes, really,” she said. “I think it is one of the jewels in the crown of the city of Hobsons Bay. “It’s a beautiful spot in the middle of suburbia and it’s quiet when you’re down there and there’s the birdlife and the wildlife. “It’s an oasis … and you wouldn’t know it unless you drove in there and went down in the lakes – it’s pretty spectacular.” Photos must be of flora, fauna or the natural landscape of Newport Lakes Reserve taken

between April 1, 2017 and March 14, 2018. Entries close midnight, March 14. The winner will receive $400, the runner-up $300 and the junior category winner $200. The competition is supported by Williamstown Camera Club. Entry is free. Entries will be displayed and prizes awarded at the Friends’ 21st birthday celebration at Newport Lakes on April 22.

Scooter theft a sad blow By Goya Dmytryshchak

(Joe Mastroianni)

Burglars have stolen a mobility scooter in a seemingly targeted theft from an Altona woman’s house. Wren Street resident Kate Douglas, pictured, said intruders forced open a locked and bolted double gate to her home overnight on Saturday, before stealing the blue Pride Revo scooter inside a shed. Nothing else was stolen. “The scooter was in a little bike shed,” Ms Douglas said. “You can’t see it from the street, so that’s why it’s strange – I just wonder if someone had seen me coming in and out on it.” Ms Douglas, 48, was diagnosed in her 20s with spinal tumors. “I have trouble walking for very long,” she said. “I’ve pretty much got partial paraplegia in one of my legs from the spinal cord injury. “Around Altona, I tend to use my electric tricycle. “It’s just when I get really tired I use the scooter, and I use it to get to work every day and medical appointments because I don’t have a car.” Ms Douglas said she used the scooter to catch the train to work as a textile conservator at the National Gallery of Victoria in Southbank. “I just feel really hurt,” she said. “I’ve just been so excited in the last couple of months to do a lot of things that I could never do before. “It just makes me feel really hurt, just sort of shaky and just really sad because I think someone’s seen me coming in and out on the scooter and they decided to come and target it one night. “They’re worth about $2500. I’m eligible to get one through the government but there’s about a one to two year waiting period.” Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Brooklyn tip blast for EPA The state’s environmental watchdog has been slammed for failing to properly manage a “grossly overfilled” tip at Brooklyn. The Bunting Road tip, about 400 metres from homes in Altona North, has been overfilled by up to 30 metres and is plagued with “hotspots”, a damning judgment from Victoria’s planning tribunal says. The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal said the Environment Protection Authority’s “conduct to date in relation to this landfill” gave little reassurance they were “providing environmentally appropriate management.” Tip hotspots are chemical reactions deep in waste landfill that emit noxious smells and often cause fires.

Welcoming the Babies

Purr-fect way to keep your feline feeling fine Discounted cat desexing with free microchipping is being offered to Hobsons Bay pensioners and health care card holders. PETstock Vet Altona North and Altona Vet Clinic have teamed up with Hobsons Bay council to combat over-population of cats in the area. Both clinics will operate on 12 cats a day on February 20 and 21. Desexing is $52 for males and $72 for females and includes free microchipping and animal registration until April 2019. Heavily pregnant female cats will be charged an additional $40 to be put on fluids. PETstock’s practice manager Holly Mead said cats could start breeding at just five months old. “One female cat and her offspring can produce as many as 420,000 kittens in just seven years,” she said. “In addition to preventing unwanted litters, desexing can result in a positive behavioral change in your cat and will also minimise the chance of your cat developing organ-related health issues that may have otherwise been detrimental to your cat’s life,” Ms Mead said. Hobsons Bay mayor Angela Altair said the council offered discounted registration for desexed pets. “Desexing keeps your pet safe by helping reduce incidences of fights and subsequent injuries that may need medical attention,” she said. “It also helps reduce the numbers of stray, feral and unwanted cats in our community that lead to overpopulation. “As desexing pets has so many benefits to our pets, residents and natural wildlife, council charges a reduced fee for the registration cost of desexed pets, and also in this instance we

Aware and ready is key By Benjamin Millar A new program designed to shift perceptions of disability is being rolled out across the west. Footscray-based employment service WCIG last week launched DARE (Disability Aware and Ready to Engage), a new disability awareness training program aiming to improve inclusion for people living with disability. Program co-ordinator Karen Gill said the free training program, funded by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), was designed by a steering committee of people with experience of disability.

It’s important people living with a disability have a - Karen Gill say

’’

“It’s really important that people living with disability have a say in what’s spoken about them and how to create these diverse communities,” she said. “It’s not just about access to buildings or a ramp so it’s been really great to have input from people about the needs in their world and their day-to-day lived experience.” Training streams have been tailored to cater to interested individuals, community groups, businesses and clubs. Training is available both online and offline and those who complete the training are awarded DARE signage showing their business or group is “Disability Aware and Ready to Engage”. WCIG board chairman Frank Carlus said the DARE training reflects WCIG’s view that people with disabilities must be able to access

Sisay Dinku, Maribyrnong mayor Cuc Lam and guests from community groups and businesses attended last Tuesday’s launch. Councillor Lam said there was still work to do for people living with disability to feel free from discrimination. “WCIG will tackle these issues through the DARE to be disability friendly program.”

The boffins behind Victoria University’s Skunk Control collective will light up White Night celebrations this Saturday when their installation, Altar to the Future, comes to life at St Paul’s Cathedral. The VU engineers, scientists and educators create visually arresting installations that merge art and science. Formed in 2012, the group has shown its work as part of a number of Melbourne festivals and has exhibited as far afield as New Zealand and Portugal. Six metres high and created entirely by hand, Altar to the Future took three months to create and includes more than 600 flowers formed by more than 6000 individual petals and 12,000 LED lights. Described as “a dream of a dream at the end of a corridor from which you don’t want to wake up”, the installation will be on show at St Paul’s Cathedral from 7pm-7am on Saturday, February 17.

MY PLACE A lifetime lived in Footscray has given local history and environmental champion and sci-fi buff Steve Wilson a strong appreciation of the area’s sense of community. He speaks with Benjamin Millar.

Bulldogs and walking to the Western Oval to support our team. The local streets were our playground. Did you have a favourite place to spend time? As a kid I loved the old Grand Theatre and the old Swimming Baths in Buckley Street, but my favourite was the old Footscray library in Buckley Street. Being an avid reader, I loved going there and sitting in its friendly atmosphere, it was small and intimate. It had the feeling of an old-fashioned bookshop. Now the new library is my favourite haunt.

(Damjan Janevski)

As the president of Friends of Stony Creek, what inspired your interest in the area’s natural habitat? Stony Creek was a wild area when I was a kid and I loved to explore it. Later I became involved with the Friends of Stony Creek, went to a planting and was inspired by what you could create with the help of the community.

What is your connection with Footscray? I have lived in Footscray all my life, though in various houses. Dad worked on odd jobs till he became a signalman in the railways. My family has lived in Yarraville since the 1900s. I went to Kingsville, Geelong Road, Hyde Street schools and Footscray Technical College. Apart from a job in the city, I was a postman in the Footscray and Yarraville area for 25 years.

What do you love most about the area? I think the friendly people of the area, the informality. When I was growing up everything was in reach, Yarraville was and is a small intimate shopping strip, Footscray was downtown where I went to the cinemas, shopped at Forges and Coles, bought my clothes, records and books and swam in the old baths in Buckley Street.

Everything was within walking distance or bicycle. I would like to see the area become more walk and bicycle friendly. What do you think of as quintessentially ‘Footscray’? To me Footscray always had the feeling of community. There was the shopping area with its own character, support for Footscray

What sparked your passion for history? I have always had passion for history in my reading. With my involvement with Stony Creek I started to research its history and the area and became fascinated with it, hence my involvement with the Footscray Historical Society. Am fascinated by the ever-changing character of Footscray. What’s something people might be surprised to learn about you? My fascination with science fiction. I started with books at the Footscray children’s library, and now have a huge collection at home of books and DVDs. When I want to refresh myself I curl up to read or reread or view my favourite old TV show or classic sci-fi.

Finding the right hearing aid ...... is only half the solution

OTICON OPN Recommended for hearing in noisy environments

Marina Opacak, an audiologist who works with Cris Ivanidis, owner of Active Audiology, says hearing loss is a difficult condition to treat as many sufferers are not ready to take action, or feel confused about what to do. “Cris and I understand how difficult it can be. We’ve counselled hundreds of people through a range of emotions associated with accepting hearing loss and doing something about it. “Finding the right hearing aid is only half the solution. The other half is finding the right professional, one who puts people at ease, as well as being technically competent with fine-tuning the aid. If tuning isn’t done correctly, a hearing aid can feel uncomfortable or, even worse, be completely useless.” Marina helps many people who have been fitted at another clinic with supposedly “the best” hearing aids, only for them to leave the aid in their bedside drawer. “Makers of hearing aids will promise the latest and greatest technology, but we often see one ‘state-of-theart’ technology works beautifully for one person and not the other. Or that same aid was simply adjusted incorrectly to the client’s hearing profile. “After a 60-minute appointment, I’m able to re-tune the settings and make the aid feel comfortable and functional. Finding the right audiologist is as important as finding the right aid,” Marina says.

How is Active Audiology different to the “big” clinics? Active Audiology is an independent clinic, which these days is become rarer and rarer – just one in five clinics in Victoria is now independent. This means Cris and Marina are not tied to prescribing particular brands of hearing aids – which is what happens with corporate clinics. They use their own expertise and research to select the correct brand for their clients – and can choose from every brand on the market.

BERNAFON ZERENA Recommended for when music or TV is difficult to understand

SIGNIA NX Recommended for difficulty talking on the phone

Free hearing aid trial Active Audiology is offering a free, no-obligation 14-day trial of the hearing aids featured on this page. These are the latest technology from four international hearing aid brands. Take them home for two weeks and experience them in your daily social environment.

SALAD DAYS Salads sure have come a long way from the wilted iceberg lettuce, thick telegraph cucumber slices and anaemic sliced tomato combination of my childhood. Sometimes – if we were being really exotic – mum would chuck in a few bite-size chunks of Coon cheese and drizzle the lot with Kraft Italian dressing. But that’s about as posh as it got. If you find yourself throwing together the same old salad most days and need some inspiration, here are some tips I find useful: 1. Add some crunch: Experiment with textures. Throw in some roasted, slivered almonds or walnuts, sesame seeds, crispy prosciutto, shredded raw purple cabbage or even some Chang’s crunchy noodles to make it more substantial.

GEORGE DONIKIAN TV AND RADIO PRESENTER FB: How would you rate your cooking skills? GD: Could be better ... but I would need to practice more! FB: What is your signature dish? GD: Greek style stuffed tomatoes with mince meat in the filling like mum makes.

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

2. Be a smooth operator: Balance the crunch with the creamy texture of avocado chunks or some marinated Persian feta. Roasted pumpkin or sweet potato also offer a smooth texture, great colour and sweetness.

work wonderfully well in salads, adding sweetness, colour and texture. 4. ‘Leave’ it out (if you like): Salads don’t always have to have leaves in them! Get busy with your spiraliser and replace the lettuce, spinach or kale with zucchini spirals. 5. Drizzle away: One of the simplest and easiest salad dressings is a nice drizzle of olive oil. You can’t go past the range of Cobram Estate olive oils with their little pop-top bottles 6. Get creative: As they always remind us on MasterChef, we eat with our eyes. Take a good look at the vegies you plan to throw in your salad and think of artistic ways in which you can present them. Take a leaf out Grace Aldridge’s book … as you can see by the photo, 12 year-old Grace went one step further recently and turned cucumbers into the most adorable little chickens.

3. Get fruity: Peach or mango slices, mandarin segments, and apple pieces all

FB: If you could only have one more meal, what would it be? GD: An entree of calamari, followed by a main of spaghetti marinara, as made by one-time top Sydney restaurant La Strada in Macleay Street, Potts Point. Finish with dessert, which would come in the form of a bombe Alaska. FB: What is your favourite TV food show and who is your favourite TV food person? GD: MasterChef wins hands down, and my favorite food person is Shane Delia. FB: What is your favourite food? GD: Asian cuisine is a favourite. FB: What is your favourite drink? GD: A bottle of French champagne from the House of Dom Ruinart. FB: Which 5 people would you most like to invite to dinner? GD: Elvis Presley, Winston Churchill, Catherine Deneuve, Adriana Lima and George Clooney.

As always, if you have any FB: Do you have a kitchen tip for us? recipes, tips or other GD: Always use fresh, quality produce. info you’d like to share, email me at sarah@ howdypartnersmedia.com.au

FOOD REVIEW

CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir finds a lot to be happy about at the Commercial Tootling down Watton Street looking for a carpark, I am bemused. But not nearly as bemused as Bennie and Deb, his mum. At issue is the nature of our destination â&#x20AC;&#x201C; seemingly the sort of pub that would normally struggle, and fail, to gain the attention of CTS. A confession: I have been seduced by the nice Facebook pictures of the Commercial Hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food, these featuring occasionally in my feed because of the jointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s links with the Werribee Bears rugby league outfit. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a diehard fan of the club, but did venture down there for a couple of games last season. Even if the pub at hand would normally fall outside CTS parameters, we are â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as ever â&#x20AC;&#x201C; upbeat and hopeful. Truth is, had I twigged the Commercial is a pokies venue, this adventure almost certainly would have been stillborn. Happily, the pokies are well away from the dining room â&#x20AC;&#x201C; out of sight, out of earshot and out of mind. That leaves us to happily enjoy the old-school ambiance. The Commercialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dining room feels â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from the carpet up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just like a country pub. As we expect, the menu is studded with the sorts of dishes routinely found in such places. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a few nice wrinkles in there, too. Deb goes the roast pork dinner ($13). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beauty, with a heap of good vegetables and more than enough highly porky and nicely

COMMERCIAL HOTEL Address: 111 Watton Street, Werribee Phone: 9741 2322 cooked meat. She loves it; the plate is clean when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done. For Bennie, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the pulled pork burger ($20), which tastes a lot better than it photographs. Oddly (perhaps even weirdly), the pulled meat appears to have been formed into a pattie. It tastes good to me and he enjoys it. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair to say Bennie has just about had it with pulled meat of any kind in burgers. The stars of our collective choosing are my barbecue baby back ribs ($33). Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two good-size rack pieces in there. The meat is tasty and tender, and comes from the bones with ease. I know thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s people out there for whom gnaw is the desired norm and who will think that no recommendation at all. Still, for me this is a fine barbecue meal, the pricing of which can put some of the specialist barbecue joints in the shade. The ribs are handily abetted by a fine slaw. The only disappointment of our Commercial outing is the chips Bennie and I are provided. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re OK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but also under-done and under-salted.

SPORT Bulldogs lose, but remain in finals hunt Footscray was swimming against the tide throughout its 127-run loss to Melbourne University in the Victorian Premier Cricket at Merv Hughes Oval at the weekend. The Bulldogs were chasing leather all day on Saturday as the Students posted a mammoth 4-367 declared, including centuries to Thomas Rogers (141) and James McNeil (100). New ball operator Hamish Winter-Irving was Footscray’s lone multiple wicket taker with 2-67 off 18 overs, including the scalp of McNeil. The other wickets were snared by Jack Sheppard (1-62), who claimed the prized wicket of Rogers, and Lucas Dredge (1-64). Footscray is always up for the challenge of a big run chase, but it lost too many wickets in clusters to build the partnerships needed to get the win. It started promisingly for the Bulldogs with openers Greg Munro (25) and Matt

Underwood (27) taking the score past 50, but Munro’s dismissal sparked a mini collapse with the side losing 3-1 to be in trouble at 3-59. The Bulldogs had a middle order revival with starts

from Dean Russ (40), captain Dylan Kight (34), debutant Jordan Kight (32) and Tim Buszard (34), but their last three wickets fell without a run and they were all out for 240. Footscray, sitting third on the ladder with 49 points, remains in the mix for a top four finish with two rounds to go before the finals. The Bulldogs will get a chance to bounce back against fourth-last Kingston Hawthorn in a two-day game at Walter Galt Reserve starting on Saturday. In the Victorian Turf Cricket Association, Spotswood has been set a victory target of 264 against Seddon and ladder leader Yarraville Club could only manage 156 against Doutta Stars in the clash of the top two sides. The Stars will go into day two as hot favourites, having already posted 3-77. Lance Jenkinson

IN THE DOGHOUSE ■ My

thoughts on women’s football could fill many pages of this paper, not just this column. I have believed from the start that the AFLW competition was rushed into existence for all the wrong reasons. Personally, I don’t care who was the driving force – the AFL, Channel Seven or whoever. We all know it is an evolving spectacle, but let me use a showbiz analogy. If I have a play or musical, I hone the script, the songs, the actors, the sets – everything. When it is good enough to warrant the media attention, the ticket price and the eyes of the world, I bring it to Broadway. There is no guarantee people will like it, but I am presenting the best possible product. The AFLW should have been developed the same way. Low-scoring, low-skill games would not then attract the same scrutiny as they currently are. The game will develop into a quality product worthy of all the attention and money. At the moment it is not. That is not the fault of the players, yet they are the ones in the firing line. Coaches are trying to win games because that is their job. They don’t get bonuses for presenting a game that looks good. I would never question the commitment of the players and their courage at times is beyond fearless. But there are many areas to address before the women’s game deserves the title of elite sport.

By Lance Jenkinson iYarraville has been displaced from the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association north-west top six after a 70-run loss to an in-form Werribee at Chirnside Park on Saturday. The Eagles were behind the eight ball from the outset in their chase for 234 target, starting the day on 3-2 and losing the early wicket of Bradley Shaw to be 4-3 in no time. Even if the scoreboard looked perilous for the Eagles, captain-coach Matthew Love knew his side was far from finished with most of his recognised batsmen ready to pad up. “The scoreboard shows four down for not many, but we knew a lot of our best batsmen were still to come,” Love said. “We just needed to get a partnership and it happened with Nick Parish and I.” Love and Parish combined for an 81-run fifth wicket partnership to breathe life into the Yarraville run chase. Parish’s resolute batting was a handy bonus

for the Eagles, as he usually comes in as a tail ender. Parish only made 11, but he rotated the strike and saw out the good balls, allowing Love to be more aggressive at the other end and get the Eagles back in the game. “He did his job 100 per cent, batting for 30 overs,” Love said. “He actually didn’t look like getting out. “He was getting in behind the ball and dead batting it. “It got us right back into the game.” Love was the main threat for Yarraville. The team leader was coming off a century and seemed destined to hit triple figures again, but snicked a ball to be out on 77. Love said the conditions never allowed him to settle. “It was one of those wickets that you’re never in,” he said. “There was a lot of playing and missing last week and this week from both teams. “It was just trying to capitalise on anything loose and keep the scoreboard ticking over and try and enjoy the challenge.

“Unfortunately one of them had my name on it and I nicked it through to Tim O’Brien [off the bowling of Jack Budd].” Talor Williams (27), Matthew Harrison (11) and Josh Turner (18 not out) provided hope late on for Yarraville, but the chase proved too great after a slow start. Yarraville slipped to eighth on the ladder and will rely on other results to reach the finals. They will host St Bernard’s at the Yarraville Oval in a two-day game starting Saturday. In other matches, Williamstown continued its red hot form annihilating Ivanhoe by 248 runs on first innings at the Williamstown Cricket Ground. Ivanhoe was bowled out for 76 in its first dig with Bryce Preston doing the most damage with 3-19 off 10. Ivanhoe just survived to stumps, finishing on 9-81, despite season-best figures of 5-12 off 11 for Jarrod Flood-Bauce. Altona had a 44-run loss to ladder leader Melton. The A’s needed 233 to win, but were bowled out for 188 with Greg Sheehan on 68 and Shannon Clarke adding 54.

Burton completed a very good bowling performance, adding three more Yarraville scalps to his hat-trick to finish with figures of 22.2-10-6-30, a match-winning effort for Werribee in VSCDA north-west first XI. The win puts the Tigers in the six and Yarraville out. Congratulations to Yarraville stalwart Graham Jarry on his recent life membership of the subbies. Kevin Hillier

Bulldogs victory soured by injury to young star One of the best wins in the Western Bulldogs short history in the AFL Women’s has been overshadowed by a knee injury to No. 1 draft pick Isabel Huntington. The Bulldogs made it two-from-two in impressive fashion, upsetting last year’s grand finalists Brisbane Lions on the road by nine points at the South Pine Sports Complex on Sunday, but celebrations were tempered by the season-ending anterior cruciate ligament injury to Huntington. “It’s pretty deflating to have a really good win and to see ‘Izz’ [injured],” Bulldogs coach Paul Groves said. “Just feeling exhausted because I feel so much for her. “The character of the individual is just immense. “It’s a Katie Brennan and Ellie Blackburn mould who is just going to lead the club for so many years.” Even though Huntington’s injury occurred

in the second quarter, the 18-year-old had already left her mark on the game. Huntington showed her potential with two powerful contested marks and two goals in the moments before the injury struck. It was an eye opener to see how good

Huntington can be when she returns from her injury. “She dropped a few early and I said to her at quarter-time, you’ve got to keep going for them,” Groves said. “She’s got this long reach and they just stuck, really proud of her resilience to get back in the game and keep going. “She was putting a block on for a teammate when it potentially happened.” Huntington’s attitude following the injury was incredible. Instead of wallowing in a ‘poor me’ attitude, she had a beaming smile on her face after the game and shared in her teammates victory. “The character of her and the type of person she is, it’s just another little blip for her and she will get back from it,” Groves said. It is the second time this season that the Bulldogs have suffered a serious knee injury to one of its young guns. In round one, Daria Bannister was left clutching her knee and was

later ruled out for the rest of the season. If there is a silver lining, Groves says the system is now properly set up to aid female footballers in their injury recovery. “We have two 18 year-olds that were just going really well facing potentially long battles, but the plus side to that now, they’re not in community footy now, they’re in the AFL system, so we’ll give them the best support, the best surgeons, all of that, and we’ll go from there,” Groves said. The Bulldogs had to weather a second half onslaught from the Lions, but did so with aplomb, thanks largely to the defensive work of Hannah Scott, who was a driving force out of the backline all game. Aisling Utri kicked the game-sealing goal for the Bulldogs midway through the last quarter. The undefeated Bulldogs will be interstate again in round three, facing Adelaide Crows. Lance Jenkinson

Squash star dreams big By Lance Jenkinson Dylan Molinaro has secured a ticket to the big squash events at this year’s Commonwealth Games. In four years time, he wants to turn that spectator ticket into a player pass. “I’d like to make it to the Commonwealth Games as a player,” Molinaro said. Molinaro is a youngster on the up in the squash world. The immensely talented 15-year-old has taken his game to the international stage and shown that it stands up against the best. Molinaro went to the Oceania Junior Championship in Queensland as an unseeded outsider, but returned with a podium finish. The Williamstown resident knocked off the seventh and top seeds en route to a win in the under-17 boys third place play-off. “This tournament was a real step up in class,” Molinaro said. “It was an international tournament and I played against players from all over the Oceania region. I was a bit nervous when I played the higher seeds, but I was confident that I could win.” Molinaro, a member of the Kooyong squash

team, turned heads when he brought down top-seeded compatriot Remi Young. After easily accounting for Fiji’s Saneel Chhaganlal and taking out Australian seventh seed Joshua Penfold, Molinaro went into the clash against Young full of confidence. Having faced Young on the court previously, Molinaro knew his strengths and sought about ways to exploit his weaknesses. “I knew how he played and my coach, Terry White, sort of helped me out with it,” Molinaro said. “He knows how these guys play as well, so it was beneficial to my game.” Molinaro possesses a dangerous game of his own – and he works hard every day to keep bettering his strengths. So while the Westbourne Grammar School student is well coached and can read and react to opponents, he is also pro-active on court. “I like to play at the front of the court and use my drop shot and short game to bring them in,” he said. “You’ve got to be pretty quick, pretty fast … you’ve got to be that split second faster than them.” Molinaro’s quest for the Oceania title came to an end at the semi-final stage, losing to Malaysia’s Kerwin Teh in three games.

Newport Rams have lost touch with the leading teams in the Baseball Victoria summer league division 1. The Rams’ finals hopes are now over after two losses in the past week and they will now turn their focus to avoiding relegation. They followed up a 7-1 mid-week loss to Melbourne with a disappointing 11-3 defeat to Moorabbin Panthers at KC White Reserve on Saturday. In women’s division 1, Footscray went down 8-3 to premiership front-runner Springvale at Rowan Road Reserve.

VFL

Molinaro admits that Teh outplayed him, but is eager for a re-match. “If I were to play him again, I’d try to control the pace, control the rallies and play my game,” he said. Molinaro, who was a runner-up at the Australian Junior Championships, is dreaming big. He is working hard in a bid for a scholarship at an ivy league school in the US and wants to turn professional. It will be another big year for Molinaro in 2018, with the goal being to win titles at the Victorian Open and the Australian Junior Championships. Of course, he will be cheering on the Australians at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast, too. Molinaro is the February nominee for the Don Deeble Rising Star award. The award, hosted by the Sunshine Western Region Sports Club and Star Weekly Weekly, recognises young athletes from the western suburbs who have achieved outstanding results at state and or national levels. Molinaro will receive $1000 and other prizes, donated by the Yarraville Club Cricket Club to assist him in achieving his sports goals.

Williamstown has appointed midfielder Adam Marcon as its captain for the 2018 Victorian Football League season. The 25-year-old has shown true leadership qualities in his 114 VFL games across two stints with Williamstown, at Richmond, while in the AFL system, and at his original club Northern Blues. Marcon replaces long-time captain Ben Jolley.

Soccer

Altona Magic will make its National Premier League Victoria 2 west debut on Saturday. Promoted after winning the state league 1 title last season, the Magic will face Werribee City in a western suburbs showdown at Paisley Park on Saturday from 5pm. After taking the club to promotion last season, Goran Lozanovski is back for another season as coach of the Magic.
