Tunnel ‘hush money’ claim By Goya Dmytryshchak Hobsons Bay council has been accused of accepting “hush” money in exchange for supporting the West Gate Tunnel after it was revealed the council will be allocated $5 million in the state budget under toll road provisions. The funding was revealed at the end of last week’s council meeting when deputy mayor Tony Briffa moved that a confidential report titled the West Gate Tunnel Capital Improvement Package be heard publicly. Cr Peter Hemphill seconded the motion, which was unanimously supported. The report states that $5 million will be allocated to capital improvements to sport and recreation reserves – $2.25 million will go to

Donald McLean Reserve at Spotswood, $2.25 million to WLJ Crofts Reserve in Altona North and $500,000 to three Brooklyn reserves. The meeting heard Treasurer Tim Pallas had made the financial commitment in writing. The $5 million package was approved by a council majority; Cr Briffa opposed it “on principle”. “The West Gate Tunnel legacy will be the increased trucks, the pollution, the amenity loss and all that sort of thing that we are going to suffer and endure – and particularly the people most affected – the areas of Brooklyn and Altona North,” Cr Briffa said. The council opposed the tunnel project last November, but that decision was reversed in December.

Hobsons Bay Residents Association convener Jason Price this week described the $5 million as “hush money”. “They threw the Brooklyn and Altona North communities under the bus,” he said. “This was hush money and came with conditions … the CEO mentioned that the treasurer’s offer was made in writing to the council in a letter. When will this letter be made public?” Don’t Destroy Millers Road spokesman Chris Dunlevy said residents were “confused”. “Council decided that opposing would mean they lost their seat at the negotiating table and Brooklyn would end up with nothing,” he said. “Well I ask the question – what exactly have we ended up with?” Spotswood South Kingsville Residents Group

spokeswoman Rosa McKenna said the group had no idea how the funded projects had been selected. “It is far from transparent,” she said. When Star Weekly requested a copy of Mr Pallas’s letter, Hobsons Bay mayor Angela Altair said it was “not a public document”. When asked why the report was marked confidential, Cr Altair said that had been the recommendation of chief executive Chris Eddy. “It related to funding negotiations with the state government that are dependent on the government’s confidential budget considerations,” she said. “On this occasion, the council decided not to take the matter in-camera on the basis of openness and transparency.”

A H Ford Reserve

Brooklyn dog park

A H Ford Reserve is an important neighbourhood park that caters for the north-western residential pocket of Altona. The park includes a playground, a full size cricket oval, seating, a number of mature shade trees and toilet block. Following the closure and demolition of the kindergarten previously located on the site, Council committed to an upgrade of the site to make it a more usable space for the community to enjoy. We want to hear from you! Council is conducting a survey to gather the community’s ideas for the future use and improved development of the local community park. The survey is available at http://participate.hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au or at the reserve in a special marked mailbox. Feedback will assist Council in developing a concept plan for staged park improvements. Council is also hosting a community drop in session on Saturday 3 March from 10am to 12pm at the reserve at 14 Lindwood Avenue, Altona. For details, contact on 9932 1131 or projects@hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au

The results of Council’s two month consultation period on a dog park in Brooklyn are in. More than 100 responses were received with 74 per cent of respondents saying they would use a dog park at Brooklyn Reserve. Areas for dogs to run, separate spaces for smaller dogs, shade and dog drinking fountains rated as the most important features of a dog park. Eighty per cent of respondents preferred the area on the corner of Cypress Avenue and Heather Avenue as the site of the new dog park. All feedback received has been incorporated into Council’s draft concept plan, which is now available at www.hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au. If you have further comments on the draft plan, please email at projects@hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au or contact Council on 9932 1000 by 16 March.

Digman Reserve master plan Council has adopted the master plan for Digman Reserve following extensive public consultation. More than 620 people downloaded a copy of the master plan,

with 66 per cent of respondents being either excited or satisfied about Council’s plan for the reserve.

Level crossing removal Council has considered the preliminary design options for the proposed level crossing removal at Aviation Road, Laverton that were presented by the Level Crossing Removal Authority in late 2017. Council will request to the LXRA that the designs adhere to the Council’s Level Crossing Removal Principles and Guidelines. Council has also requested the Level Crossing Removal Authority address the community’s concerns regarding the visual amenity, impacts and safe access for pedestrians and cyclists. This includes: • inclusion of a ramp under the rail line for access north and south and onto the Aircraft Station platform • upgrade to the existing at-grade pedestrian crossing near Balmoral Ave

seek input from interested community groups on suitable design themes, images and interpretation options that reflect the local history, values and identity for the final design. Planning and design for this crossing has been brought forward by LXRA with construction now likely to commence in late 2018.

Offensive behaviour warning in Altona Meadows

The location near the 100 Steps of Federation in Altona Meadows.

A woman has come forward to warn others about a man exposing himself at an Altona Meadows parkland popular with families, joggers and walkers. The woman, who asked not to be named, said she saw the man holding a phone in one hand and performing a lewd act with the other about 5.30pm last Wednesday near the 100 Steps of Federation. “I noticed this man standing just off to the side of the footpath and he seemed to be doing

something with his hand and had his mobile phone in the other,” she said. “As I got closer, I could clearly see what he was doing. “I kept going and then I thought, ‘Oh my God, I have to turn back because I’m not going to run all the way to Altona. “Then I saw this lady walking on her own and I ran up to her. “I tapped her on the arm and I said, ‘Come with me, walk with me really fast, go past him, don’t look at him, just walk with me really fast past him’.”

The incident was reported to Altona North police. The offender was described as Caucasian, tall and skinny, with shoulder-length brown wavy hair. He was wearing black shorts, black sunglasses, black cap and an orange hi-vis tradies-style T-shirt. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Goya Dmytryshchak

Brandon Phan was driving home with his girlfriend after an enjoyable night trying their luck at Crown Casino for Lunar New Year when he saved someone’s life. It was 2am on Saturday and they were on the West Gate Freeway when they saw a truck carrying an empty shipping container crash through the metal road barriers near the CityLink exit. Brandon, realising that the driver was not getting out of the truck, rushed over to the wreck and saw fuel gushing out of its punctured tank. “You could actually smell the petrol, it was like being at the petrol station filling up your car, it was a constant flow,” the 23-year-old electrician from West Footscray said.

Realising he might not have long before an explosion, Brandon managed to open the door of the cabin and pull the driver out. He put him across his shoulders and got him as far away from the truck as he could. Thirty or 40 seconds later, the truck burst into flames. Police say Brandon’s efforts, without thought for his own safety, almost certainly saved the driver’s life. “I would describe the passerby as heroic and he will be nominated for a bravery award,” said Senior Sergeant John Mason. Brandon said it didn’t hit him until later that he could have been killed. “I was in a lot of shock, knowing that if we were there any later it could have been worse, but I didn’t really think about it at the time.”

(Chris Hopkins)

Hero saves truckie’s life

His girlfriend, Felicity Wu, watched the whole incident unfold as she called triple-0. For a moment, when she heard the huge boom, she wasn’t sure if Brandon had got himself clear. “My heart sunk a bit and I thought, ‘Are they far enough away from the truck to be safe?’,” the 23-year-old said. Now that it’s had some time to sink in, Felicity said she was proud of her boyfriend and had been calling him a hero all day. The driver, a 44-year-old Noble Park man, was taken to The Alfred hospital with non-life threatening injuries, including shoulder and neck injuries. – Tom Cowie, The Age

An attempt to ban balloons on council-owned or managed land has been launched by Hobsons Bay Boomerang Bags volunteers. Boomerang Bags is an initiative to reduce reliance on single-use plastic, one of the biggest contributors to pollution in waterways and oceans. Group founder Marilyn Olliff and other volunteers have submitted a letter to Hobsons Bay council calling for a balloon ban because the rubber and attached strings end up as “potentially dangerous waste … posing a significant hazard to our local wildlife”. “It is well documented that many birds and animals are injured and killed each year by becoming entangled or ingesting this waste,” the letter states. The letter was tabled at last week’s Hobsons Bay council meeting and an officer’s report on the matter will be considered at a future meeting. Neighbouring Maribyrnong has banned balloons from council-funded festivals. Maribyrnong planning services director Nigel Higgins said the council required waste management plans for each council funded-festival. “These plans include a ‘no balloons at festivals section’,” he said.

Hate flyers found in Footscray By Benjamin Millar Police are investigating a series of inflammatory anti-Semitic flyers being handed out in Footscray. The flyers, dropped into letterboxes last week, make highly-inflammatory accusations against Jews. The flyer directs people to seek out further anti-Jewish, pro-Hitler and holocaust denial propaganda. Anti-Defamation Commission chairman

Dr Dvir Abramovich said the “poisonous” flyers reflected a recent “explosion of hatred” and a dangerous escalation of anti-Semitic sentiment. “This escalation is very troubling, and it’s clear that anti-Semites are redoubling their efforts like never before, to spread their poisonous ideology,” he said. “We denounce in the strongest possible terms this contemptible and unsettling flyer that incites against Jews and traffics in abhorrent stereotypes, conspiracy theories and fear.”

had never seen this particular flyer before. But he said the “ugly” slurs and taints in these materials have been used throughout history to provoke hatred and violence against the Jewish people. “The repugnant charges made against Jews in this flyer attempt to drive a potentially dangerous wedge between communities and poses a threat to the values of inclusivity and respect that we cherish.” The flyer has been provided to Victoria Police.

Dr Abramovich said recent anti-immigration sentiment reflected in media and politics was fanning the flames of hatred and emboldening far-right groups. “It is very distressing that it is happening, we never know when these sentiments may become physical,” he said. “The dam has been broken, the level of intolerance we are seeing is really surging.” Dr Dvir Abramovich said although anti-Semitic sentiment was nothing new, he

In the swim of things Williamstown’s Jesse Coulson and Altona’s Robbe Dilissen are hoping to catch Sam Sheppard in this month’s Jalna Big Bay Swim. They’ll join swimmers from the US, Ireland and Queensland in the 3.2 kilometre swim from Port Melbourne to Williamstown on Sunday, February 25. Melbourne’s shipping channel will close for an hour from 9am as entrants swim from Sandridge beach to Pelican’s Landing Restaurant alongside Gem Pier. Dilissen, 18, and Coulson, 17, finished one and two minutes, respectively, behind Pier to Pub veteran Sheppard who last year swam across the bay in 32:43.4. Kendra Jewell led the women home with a time of 38:26.6. Chloe McCardel, who has completed 24 English Channel crossings and holds the world record for the longest ocean swim in history – 124.4 kilometres – is ambassador for the annual Rotary Club of Point Gellibrand fundraiser for lifesaving clubs.

Coulson rates himself a strong podium chance this year but said his training mate Dilissen and Sheppard would be hard to beat. “I finished third in the open section of the Point Lonsdale (1.2 kilometre) swim and fourth in the juniors in the Pier to Pub (1 kilometre), so hopefully I can go better in the bay swim,” he said. Early entrants go in the draw to win prizes including an Entrix wetsuit, South Pacific gym memberships, movie tickets and cash. Swimmers and spectators will get a tub of Jalna yoghourt at the finish line, with a family festival, market stalls and entertainment at Commonwealth Reserve.

Chipping in for charity People can support grassroots philanthropy by teeing off in the third annual Hobsons Bay Community Fund golf day at Altona next month. The event at Kooringal Golf Club will raise money for the fund, which has given cash grants of $222,586 to 88 community organisations over the past 11 years. Fund chairman Hayden Raysmith said the golf day was one of its major fundraisers. “It is a fun way to contribute to a wide range of community organisations,” he said. “Our aim is to have all major employers enter a corporate team. “It is a great way to build a profile, network and contribute to the community while enjoying a golf day.”

The fund uses interest from its corpus to award grants of $500-$5000 to local organisations and associations to benefit the community. Last year, it awarded $34,805 to 11 recipients. It also held the inaugural Sport Inclusion Awards to recognise clubs and teams for empowering young people with a disability to participate in activities. The Hobsons Bay Community Fund golf day is at Kooringal Golf Club on March 23 from 11am. People can take part by playing, sponsoring a hole or donating a prize. Entries and fees must be made by March 9. Bookings: trybooking.com/SAMD or call Craig on 0408 055 125. Goya Dmytryshchak

Get your motor running Behind the revving engines and shining exteriors lies a serious message. For many, the Hobsons Bay Men’s Shed motoring group is a place for blokes to nurture their mental wellbeing. President Ken Inglis, who will this month host the eighth annual car show at Altona, said being in the group was an emotional support for many men, himself included. “It’s got me out and about,” he said. “When I retired, I just went downhill. “[The men’s shed] helps them get out and communicate with other people.” The annual car show is the biggest event on the group’s calendar. There will be pre-1945 cars and motorcycles and hot/street/custom/ modified cars from all years on show.

Mr Inglis said he hoped to see a record number of cars and bikes at this year’s show. “The first year, we started off with 80,” he said. “Last year, we had over 220 and we’re hoping to beat that again this year.” The Custom, Classic Car & Bike Show is at Altona’s Apex Park on Sunday, February 25 from 9am-3pm. There will be live entertainment, face-painting, a petting zoo, food, drinks and coffee. Cars and bikes are $10 to enter and public entry is by gold coin donation. A swap meet and car boot sale will be held at the same time. For more information call Ken, 0418 102 643 or Graham, on 0451 411 547. Goya Dmytryshchak

Hooked on netting litter By Goya Dmytryshchak Eleven-year-old Zachary Garnsworthy has launched a war on waste. The youngster has founded a group called Warmies Waste Warriors dedicated to cleaning up rubbish from the Warmies fishing spot at Newport. Zachary, pictured, started picking up litter at the site last July as part of his school’s community service program. He was motivated to act after a cousin’s dog swallowed fishing hooks left behind by anglers.

’’

(Joe Mastroianni)

Then, during the Christmas holidays, Zachary decided to set up a Facebook group so more people could get involved and have a bigger impact. For the group’s first official clean-up, on January 28, 22 people turned up and collected nine bags of litter in less than an hour. Zachary said the amount of rubbish discovered made him “pretty disgusted”. “Half of it is from the fishermen down there,” he said. “I’m not trying to criticise them but we find fishing bait packets, we find fishing wire all through the plants and everywhere. “Then half of the rubbish is just the backwash, because every time it rains, lots of rubbish washes down.” Warmies Waste Warriors’ next event will be on Clean up Australia Day, Sunday, March 4 from 8.30-9.30am, meeting at the Gatehouse. For more information, visit the group’s Facebook page.

Level crossing input sought Community input is being sought about the planned removal of the Aviation Road lavel crossing at Laverton. The Level Crossing Removal Authority will build a road bridge over the rail lines or lower Aviation Road under the lines. It has ruled out raising or lowering the rail lines. Hobsons Bay councillor Colleen Gates said the council would request state funding in the next budget for upgrades to the Point Cook Road/Princes Freeway interchange and Aircraft Station as part of the crossing removal. “This project is significant and it will be delivered in a complex precinct that already faces a number of key challenges,” she said. “The current traffic flow within the Aviation Road precinct, including Point Cook Road, is already congested, which causes huge concern for local residents and commuters about pedestrian, cyclist and driver safety. “We know Point Cook is forecast to grow and it is therefore vital that [the authority] closely considers this to ensure the project doesn’t make the current situation worse.” The council will seek improved carparking, a pedestrian/cycling shared underpass and a reduction in speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h. Feedback is being sought from commuters and residents from Altona Meadows, Laverton, Seabrook and beyond. Goya Dmytryshchak

Store manager Shannon Hill with an RSPCA Victoria adoption kitten. (Damjan Janevski)

Time to adopt a pet A three-day adoption blitz will begin this Friday as RSPCA Victoria seeks to house about 1000 pets in desperate need of a home. The RSPCA ‘Clear the Shelter’ promotion will offer $29 adoptions of dogs, cats, guinea pigs and rabbits. The drastically cut price will be on offer from Friday to Sunday at all seven RSPCA Victoria animal care centres and participating Petbarn stores. RSPCA Victoria chief executive Dr Liz Walker said the promotion aims to find forever homes for animals currently in RSPCA care. “We monitor adoption promotions carefully and have found that the price someone pays to acquire an animal has no impact on return rates and no negative impact on the animal’s welfare,” she said.

Dr Walker said RSPCA Victoria does not have a limit on how long an animal can remain in its care, but believes that pets belong in homes not shelters. “The $29 fee is nowhere near what it costs to prepare an animal for adoption, but if we can get hundreds of pets into permanent homes then that’s a really worthwhile investment,” she said. All adoption animals are desexed, microchipped, vaccinated, health and behaviour checked and adoption procedures will ensure each animal is matched to the right family.

Footscray City Primary School pupils are flying the flag of reconciliation and respect for Australia’s traditional owners. The school community came together on Friday to raise the indigenous flag on a new flagpole. The flag was provided to the school after pupils Ava and Sigfreda, in grade 3 at the time, wrote to Gellibrand MP Tim Watts about their belief the school should be flying the indigenous flag. Footscray City Primary School principal Jessie Hand said Mr Watts’ office provided a flag, so school captains Darcy and Marlowe wrote to state Footscray MP Marsha Thomson requesting a second flagpole. Ms Thomson said she was excited to see the students so engaged. “Small projects like this can make a big difference to the everyday experiences of students and increase the community’s pride in their local schools,” she said.

A walk through history By Goya Dmytryshchak Concept designs to transform Paine Reserve into a walkway representing Newport’s rail history will be revealed at an exhibition held at The Substation this week. Hobsons Bay council has funded Hubcap Productions – the company behind the Art & Industry Festival – to commission concept designs by a range of people from different fields including architecture and graphic design. Hubcap’s director Donna Jackson said ideas had emerged through consultation with the community, local artists, Newport traders and students and lecturers from the Thrive Research Hub at Melbourne University. “There seems to be a lot of interest in Paine Reserve, which is the area between Mason Street and Market Street,” she said. “It’s got the Newport Bowls Club and the new hub for Newport facing onto that park. “My idea for the park was that by walking through it you’d be able to tell stories about the local industry in the area, maybe the rail industry, and people and children would learn about our industrial history linked to rail.” Submitted designs include cafe wallpaper designs for businesses inspired by original drawings of the Newport railway workshops, vintage railway graphics and ticket designs. Another idea is a performance space with a railway track-inspired sun shelter, reflecting the history of trains in the Newport area. The exhibition of concepts, with a chance to meet the artists and design students, is on February 22 from 10am-5pm and February 23 from 10am-1pm at The Substation, 1 Market Street, Newport.

Sandy’s friends rubbish bins Maribyrnong council has defended its decision to place privately operated recycling bins on the edge of a memorial garden to honour Sandy, the only horse to return to Australia following service in World War I. The Friends of Sandy and the Australian Light Horse spent close to 30 years fighting for a memorial to Sandy, finally gaining their wish last October. Friends of Sandy’s Elaine Brogan said the “ugly” bins placed at the edge of the carpark adjacent to the memorial, on Randall Street in Maribyrnong, were disrespectful and unsightly. “These bins always attract dumping as well, so we have this lovely memorial being spoiled,” she said. Council infrastructure services director Sunil Bhalla said the placement of the bins “minimally impacts” viewing the garden’s monument. “We are unable to have them installed at the southern end of the carpark as this leads to an emergency evacuation area,” he said.

Footscray early learning boost By Benjamin Millar Design work will begin next month on a new early learning centre destined to be built alongside Footscray City Primary School. Early Childhood Education Minister Jenny Mikakos visited the Hyde Street site last Wednesday to outline the plans for a “one-stop-shop” that will bring together kindergarten, maternal child and health services and other family services as part of the Footscray Learning Precinct. The $15 million precinct will re-shape education in the area

by also providing high schooling across three campuses – a senior campus at Footscray City College and two co-ed campuses, at Gilmore College and a new building near Victoria University’s Footscray Nicholson campus. The new early learning centre will be built in partnership with Maribyrnong council. Footscray City Primary School principal Jessie Hand said the new centre created a great opportunity for early childhood and primary school teachers to work together. “The co-location of speech therapists, occupational therapists, then the maternal

child and health aspects, are a very exciting and unique opportunity,” she said. Ms Mikakos said the investment would help give families flexible, accessible and affordable kindergarten and childcare services. Maribyrnong community services director Clem Gillings said the council welcomed the funding announcement. “We are working closely with the state government to plan and design the integrated early learning centre, which will ultimately be managed by a third party provider,” she said.

Gymnasts on a roll Two of Australia’s hottest gymnastic talents will be flying the flag for Footscray when they take on some of the planet’s best gymnasts at the 2018 Acrobatic Gymnastics World Championships. Tori Singleton, 18 and Katelyn Dullard, 13, only recently partnered up as an artistic gymnastics team but dazzled selectors as they qualified for the world championships team. The pair will be Victoria’s sole competing representatives at the championships in Belgium in April, ending a long drought for the state in the national team. They came together at Footscray’s Team Adrenalin acrobatics centre, which specialises in acrobatic gymnastics for children and adults. Their coach Stephen Santo, a former artistic gymnast who will also be heading off to the championships as a team coach, said the whole centre has been buzzing since the squad was announced.

“Tori and Katelyn have got such a great connection, their choreography really stands out,” he said. “It’s really strong from the beginning to the end, it’s a really dynamic routine.” Mr Santo said the duo will be working on three routines in preparation for the 13-19 Women’s Pair category at the world championships, to be held April 4-10.

MY PLACE Austrian-born Newport resident Susanne Wright has published an ode to Vienna and its people. She speaks with Goya Dmytryshchak. What do you like about Newport? We wanted somewhere where we had public transport, not too far from the city and not too far from the some of the children – I mean we had four children but they were all over the place. We had visited many times and we quite liked the area. It’s a good 10 years now living here. Is there anything you would change?

(Damjan Janevski)

Not really. It is not Vienna, it is not Europe. A few high mountains I would like, preferably where I am able to ski. Do you have a favourite restaurant or cafe? We don’t go to many restaurants, we are pensioners. I certainly go to cafes. I go to at least two or three in Yarraville. Tell me about your latest book, Shadows of Glory – Vienna 1890 to 1955 – City of my Youth. When I retired, I got a little bit homesick … I just thought I knew nothing about that period from the turn of the 20th century to the time I was born so I was trying to find out more. It was a very interesting period because Vienna

was at the absolute height of its glory as far as achievements were concerned – a large Jewish population and people streamed into the country from the various other satellite states because Vienna had a good university, so it was a real hub of new things happening and music, science, anything. It was really wonderful at that time. And then when World War I came, it all of course was the end. Vienna used to be the

16 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY STAR WEEKLY \ FEBRUARY 21, 2018

capital of the whole Habsburg Empire and then after World War I it was just at one end of little Austria, so it was a complete change for people. My parents lived through the early part of this history and I grew up during the early 1930s, soon after the demise of the Habsburg Empire, and was fortunate to survive World War 2. Most is based on personal experiences of mine and that of my ancestors.

What’s something people might be surprised to know about you? I got my PhD in Austria, in animal husbandry, researching the milk yield of an ancient breed of cattle, the blond cattle of Corinthia. Shadows of Glory - Vienna 1890 to 1955 - City of my Youth is available on Amazon.

Renovations like this, where you have the cute facade coupled with truly inspirational, modern, innovative and edgy spaces that compel you to entertain and enjoy the outdoors, are rare. This house’s renovation has the X-factor. Combine the architectural envy-factor with four large bedrooms with built-in robes and study nooks, a main bedroom with a walk-through robe leading to its stunning en suite, three bathrooms and a sky-high quality quotient, more soaring than the cathedral ceilings in the open-plan living area. Here, full height windows offer the perfect view of the lap pool, lawn and manicured garden including the outdoor covered entertaining area – decked and deep, with a fireplace and barbecue kitchen. The kitchen within is understated and plush. At this address, high-end detail is scattered throughout, placed like artwork. A must see.

This pretty Edwardian has been shaped and finessed with skill and love – and the result is utterly charming. Past the welcoming garden, Baltic floorboards lead to three large bedrooms with built-in robes. The main bedroom has an ornate fireplace. High ceilings, period-specific ceiling detail, large cornices and architraves and hydronic heating feature throughout. Plumbing, wiring and stumping have been updated. The separate large lounge room has an original fireplace. The main bathroom is styled in a grey and white palette with stained-glass windows ensuring light and privacy. The contemporary kitchen with soft-closing cabinetry has cafe windows that are great for entertaining on the decked undercover entertaining area. The leafy north-facing backyard is a treat. The property is located close to all Williamstown’s many attractions.

This single-fronted Victorian looks straight out of Carlton North but is in the heart of Seddon. There are two large, carpeted bedrooms with huge built-in robes, the main with double-glazed windows and an original restored fireplace. Baltic floorboards in the wide hall complement high ceilings and ornate cornices creating charm and a distinct hygge-feel. The Scandinavian influence continues in the open-plan living and dining zone with the black kitchen set against white walls and naturally stained floorboards – it is all super smart and liveable. The lounge room even has a pot-belly fireplace to cosy-up next to. French doors open to a private, decked entertaining area. With attic storage plus a third bedroom or studio space and secure off-street parking in the rear, gas ducted heating and solar and water tank, this house packs a punch.

This Victorian has been renovated to display the ideal blend of old and new. The striking facade with verandah opens to timber floors and two large bedrooms with built-in robes. The second bedroom has a restored fireplace. High-ceilings and ornate period-rich detail have been retained throughout. The dual fireplace with exposed timber wall and original feature tiling will be welcome in winter. The meals area is part of a discreet renovation that has maximised space yet kept all the charm this era is sought for. The kitchen has stainless-steel appliances, generous storage and waterfall stone benchtops. In the central bathroom find a claw-foot bath for soaking after a long day. Sliding doors open to a paved area, undercover entertaining zone and raised and paved alfresco area. The garden shed is great for storage. Split-system units take care of climate control.

Multiple independent heating and cooling systems, as well as insulation in every every room, keeps things comfortable. Wide halls, beautiful bathrooms, built-in cabinetry and generous under-stair storage ensure everything has a place. Uncluttered lines give the house a mood of effortless grace. The first after entry is a dedicated office with hardwood desktops and matte black storage. The theatre room has a Bose system and Sony projector set. The main living zone has a large white 2pac kitchen with deep Caesarstone

waterfall benches, feature timber wall, integrated Miele dishwasher and an oven configuration that includes a steam oven and standard oven with warmer below. The large walk-in pantry is beyond. A built-in study nook with mirrored splashback is adjacent to the meals and lounge area with fireplace and Bose surround-sound zoned for in-out independent listening. The retractable pleated flyscreen is handy on hot days when the concertina doors are open to the decked area. When it rains? Rain-censored louvres can shut the pergola roof.

The pool with water feature looks on to a lawned area. The standards continue to the four bedrooms upstairs, three with built-in robes and the main with a walk-in robe and en suite. A study area and a third bathroom complete the first-floor offerings of this exemplary, hi-tech prospect. Jawbone Reserve, the beach, garden, parks and schools are nearby, with Williamstown shops a short drive away and the West Gate Bridge just a little further. Samantha Freestone

Yarraville, 134 Gamon Street Victorian dimensions and design - impressive from every angle - capture immediately the allure of this distinguished home. Looking further forward however, such striking land proportions (measuring over 597sqm approx.) will anticipate any number of desires. Two character-filled bedrooms downstairs feature soaring high ceilings and retain original fireplaces, traits reflected with equal ?lan in the spacious formal lounge. Rain shower finished in frameless glass identifies the bathroom’s considerably more modern mood, the extent of which is seen in the kitchen’s Bosch/Smeg appliances and walk-in-pantry. Formal dining dimensions featuring the natural warmth of floorboards open via French doors to take in aspects over lushly landscaped gardens - a beautiful backdrop to elegant interiors. The upstairs retreat ideally proportioned for third bedroom or home office adaptability exhibits an evocative combination of herringbone parquet floors and vaulted ceilings that draw the eye to balcony glimpsing the city skyline. Off-street parking. A short stroll to trains and both Yarraville and Seddon Village caf?s.

FOOD REVIEW STARWEEKLY.COM.AU

CONSIDER THE SAUCE Kenny Weir finds Mantra does the simple things well The location and setting of Mantra is a surprise and just right: In a light industrial conclave way over in the Yarraville back waters near Francis and Hyde streets. Inside, the warehouse has undergone a gorgeous cafe transformation. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lots of space, high ceilings and plenty of room to grow. Which makes me think that Mantra will continue evolving. In the meantime, there is food â&#x20AC;&#x201C; very lovely food. The menu runs to breakfast items such as sweet corn fritters, breakfast ramen and jasmine rice pudding. Lunch choices range from a falafel burger to what sounds like a delectable salad of heirloom carrots, beetroot hummus, dukkah and sweet potato. CTS visits twice within a couple of days and has a swell time lunching. The service is cheerful and efficient and the wait times good. Visiting for reconnaissance purposes, I go with the wagyu burger with chilli relish, cos lettuce, tomato, bacon and fries ($24). Now, $24 is quite a lot to pay for a cafe burger in these parts. On the other hand, this is a terrific specimen of the burger art. Simplicity is a virtue here. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a two-fisted joy, juicy and with Middle Eastern seasoning. The chips are good, though those on the outer reaches of the mound are barely lukewarm and the rest could be hotter, too. For a return visit of the family Sunday lunch kind, Deb gets the same burger with an equally

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already seen enough â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and eaten enough â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to rather wish the â&#x20AC;&#x153;poke bowlâ&#x20AC;? fad fades away with some haste, seeing as it widely seems to be an excuse for slopping mediocre ingredients in a bowl and charging richly for it. The Mantra Bowl ($18), by contrast, shows how it should be done and how good such an offering can be. The ingredients are top-shelf and â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just as importantly for this kind of meal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; beautifully arranged in the bowl. Rice â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; black beans, crunchy pickled cabbage, several kinds of mushroom, bean sprouts, tender asparagus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and even a trans-national touch through brown baba ganoush and flatbread: All wonderful, alone and/or together. Bennie muchly enjoys his barbecue duck waffle with mango chutney, lychee gel and grilled asparagus ($23). The meat is juicy yet nicely chewy, though it seems to me his meal would benefit from a greater sauce/liquid component. He disagrees.

SPORT Falcons look to young guns to step it up Balson, Jacqui Newton, Molly Jovic and Tahnysha Salanoa all returned from last year’s squad. Among those not returning are Emily Post and Victoria Honner, who have joined Geelong, Steph Puopolo and Rudi Ellis. Lind said they were unsure how the different approach would affect results, but were confident of still being a strong side. The Falcons also look set to be hardest hit by the Australian Netball League season running concurrent with the VNL season. Four Falcons – Cook, Newton, Jovic and Salanoa – have been named in the ANL squad. “It makes it tricky as they train on Wednesday nights,” Lind said. “We’re not keen on the two seasons running on top of each other and think it has to be reviewed.” Imogen Sexton, who comes from Bendigo, will help fill the void in defence, while Andrea

Tai could get an opportunity in goals. Molly Gribble, who has never played VNL before, has also joined the club. Lind said signing Tai, who previously played with the club, was a luxury. “She’s prepared to play in division 1, but has championship experience and can step up.” Lind said they were hoping Sri Lankan Tharjini Sivalingam would also return to the club pending a visa. The Falcons’ pre-season is well under way and the side went on a pre-season camp earlier this week. Lind said they had taken a different approach with training. “We’ve done a longer, slower preparation,” she said. “It’s been really good and we’ve done a lot of conditioning. I think we will be better physically prepared this season.” Tara Murray

Altona’s magic start By Lance Jenkinson Altona Magic has made a rowdy entry into the National Premier League 2 west. The newly promoted state league 1 champions showed they will be no pushover in a higher division after a confident 2-0 win over Werribee City in the season opener at Paisley Park on Saturday evening. Magic coach Goran Lozanovski was thrilled to see his side get its first win under the belt in front of their home fans after such a big build-up to the season. “It’s been 12 months in the making,” he said. “The club has put in so much hard work behind the scenes in state league 1. “We were really excited, nervous and anxious at the same time, but once we scored the first goal we settled. “Our supporters were happy with our performance, so it will put us in good stead for the season.” Altona’s energy was evident early in the game. The Magic strangled the visitors with their chasing and pressuring, forcing them into errors. It took only six minutes for the Magic to get on the scoreboard through Jon McShane. McShane pounced on a turnover and gave his side the advantage. “We were pretty much switched on from the start,” Lozanovski said. “We’ve talking about this game for a good month and in pre-season training we’ve been testing a lot of things with our line-up. “I think we got it right and we actually got off to a good start in the first couple of seconds, we were aggressive and the tempo was nice and high, which was important from our behalf. “That first goal came from our pressure and intensity, so we did well in that respect.” Altona had to withstand some Werribee City pressure following the goal. Magic goalkeeper Rani Dowisha was forced to make a fine save and one or two other opportunities had to be dealt with. But just before half-time, McShane struck again on the back of some lazy Werribee City defending, capping a fine game with a double. “He was a happy chap after the game and obviously it was a good way for him to start the season,” Lozanovski said. “Like I keep telling Jon, if he’s effective as our No. 9 bringing other people into play, as far as I’m concerned he’s scored a goal for us anyway. “It’s always good for self confidence when you bag a goal or two and get your season up and running. “I’m expecting Jon to create goals and score goals every week.” Altona could have added to its tally in the

IN THE DOGHOUSE ■ There used to be a mad scramble of clearances at suburban footy level in the final few weeks before the season, but with the increased professionalism demanded of players and the need to keep under the salary cap and points, most teams have just about completed their lists. I am hearing that a few clubs are struggling due to financial constraints, but that is not new. You can’t spend money you don’t have, and benefactors are hard to find and less likely to hand over wads of cash to pay players, especially when those players just take the money and run. Clubs are getting better at building a club’s success rather than trying to buy it. Some big names are on the move in the WRFL, with Altona very busy. Steve Kennedy heads back to Darley, but the club has great pick-ups in Kevin Johnson from Yarraville Seddon Eagles and Patrick Rose from the EDFL. Deer Park snare yet another former AFL-listed player in former Blue Paul Bower. ■ The annual Jalna Big Bay Swim happens from 9am this Sunday when swimmers from all over the world jump into Port Phillip bay for the 3.2-kilometre challenge from Port Melbourne to Williamstown. Western suburbs teenagers Robbie Dilissen from Altona and Willy lifesaver Jesse Coulson will be among the local entries taking on defending champion Sam Sheppard. Money raised from the event goes to surf lifesaving clubs across the state. Details: bigbayswim.com.au ■ Williamstown Cricket Club will hold its annual president’s lunch on Friday, March 2, in the rooms at McLean Reserve from 11.45am. Richmond and AFL legend Kevin Bartlett, the main speaker, will be joined by Simon Helmot, one of the best cricket brains going around, and comedian Nick Cody. Tickets: 0425 780 096. ■ Spotswood sit in the VTCSA senior four going into the last round this weekend to meet Yarraville Club. Spotty has a shaky hold on fourth spot with Doutta Stars breathing down its neck. Doutta plays sixth-placed Keilor. In subbies north-west first XI, the top six is far from settled with two weeks to go. Werribee, in sixth, will need a super bowling performance this week against Taylors Lakes and a strong one-day finish against Brunswick to secure a finals spot.

second half, but was let down by its finishing. With a clean sheet and two goals on the board, the Magic were content to get their season off to a winning start. “Full credit to the Werribee City goalkeeper [Tommy Dunn],” Lozanovski said. “He made a couple of great saves which could have seen us blow out the scoreline a bit.”

McShane, in attacking midfield, Lirim Elmazi and Troy Ruthven, both in defence, were the top performers for Altona. The Magic will travel to Knights Stadium for a traditional 3pm kick-off on Saturday to face Sunshine George Cross. ■ More

City West Falcons’ championship side will be a younger looking one this season, as the club plans to invest in its youth in the Victorian Netball League. After missing out on the top prize the past few seasons, the Falcons have decided to reset and field some young talent. Falcons coach Marg Lind said the time was right to bring through the younger players. “As coaches we are prepared to take a step backwards and invest in youth so we can take some steps forward the next few years,” she said. “We’ve got some really good under-19s and we’ve put a lot of investment in them from under-14s. “We’re starting to see those kids coming through the grades.” While there will be some new faces in the squad, a number of players have returned.

Late penalty goal ends United’s cup run The concession of a late penalty has consigned Maidstone United to elimination in the qualifying round of the FFA Cup. United conceded from the spot with three minutes left on the clock to go down 2-1 to West Point on the artificial surface at Grange Reserve in Hoppers Crossing on Saturday. United coach Nino Comegna will not be losing too much sleep over the result with the season proper the main focus for his team. “You would like to advance, but you’ve got to look at it realistically,” he said. “This time of the year, these are really just hit-outs for us and we’re looking forward to the beginning of the season. “That’s our long term goal, to get everything ready, get our game plan working, get the boys fit and get an understanding to hit the season running.” Maidstone United made a flying start to the match when central defender Darren Bonnici scored a header off a corner after 15 minutes. In a game that see-sawed, United’s lead was never set in stone and West Point loomed as a

threat going forward. “It was a game that was constantly changing,” Comegna said. “One minute we’d dominate, the next minute they’d dominate. “Even though it was a bit scrappy from both teams, it was a good solid hit-out and an enjoyable game.” Maidstone United’s cup dream was over on the back of a couple of defensive lapses. United conceded first through a counter attack and through giving up the penalty. Despite the loss, Comegna was pleased with the way his team applied themselves, as well as their approach to the pre-season. “The boys have been really enthusiastic and they’re working hard,” he said. Craig Moyles and Chris Newman were the pick of the Maidstone United players. Moyles, the team captain, and Newman, a new recruit, dictated the play in the middle of the park. Others to stand out for United were Bonnici, Nick Jovanovic and Nic Hartley. Lance Jenkinson

Runner makes Games team Western suburbs star Luke Mathews has become the first runner since Nick Bromley over a decade ago to claim three consecutive Australian national 800-metre titles. Mathews, a product of the Altona and Werribee little athletics centres, won in a runaway time of 1:45.90 at Carrara Stadium on Saturday night to stamp his ticket to this year’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. The 22-year-old was somewhat casual in the first half of his race, keeping pace with the leaders. But Mathews came home like a freight train in the second half of the race to win in a canter. “I think as a [experienced] 1500m runner, naturally my second half or last 250m is stronger,” Mathews said after the race. “To be honest with you, the last two years I’ve gone with 250m to go, so this year I thought I’d do the same and I felt stronger than last year and stronger than 2016 and pretty much back-to-back 1.45s, I’m happy.” Mathews was ecstatic to seal his place in Australia’s Commonwealth Games team. He will do so as an 800m runner, but could he also pull on the green and gold in the 1500m? “If the selectors are here, I’m hoping to get picked for the 1500m too,” he said. “If I just do the 800m, either way I’m going to be running in this gorgeous stadium in 50 days time.” Mathews, born and raised in Williamstown, is well supported by his new coach, mum Liz. Liz was his coach and mentor in the formative years of his athletics career. Lance Jenkinson

Bulldogs face injury woes

Seagulls on the chase By Lance Jenkinson Williamstown was ruing a number of dropped catches after day one of its local derby with Altona in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association at Frank Kirk Oval on Saturday. The Seagulls will be forced into a hefty run chase after the A’s made them pay by making a healthy 9-239 off 80 overs on home soil. Seagulls all-rounder Craig Sheedy said his team’s sloppy fielding let the bowlers down. “It was really disappointing to drop those catches because we actually bowled really well,” he said. Altona was superbly led by captain Adam Yates and middle order batsman Sean Hollins. Yates made 68 and Hollins top-scored with 74, but it could have been a different story. “I think they both got dropped early,” Sheedy lamented. “They got their runs but they wouldn’t have got there if we had held our catches.” All five Williamstown bowlers were used for long spells.

And, to skipper Dale McDonald’s delight, all were economical. Jarrod Flood-Bauce continued his outstanding form with 3-44 off 12 overs. Flood-Bauce has been a revelation since his promotion from the seconds in January. He has taken 13 wickets at an average of 11 in three first XI appearances and seems to have locked away his spot in the team ahead of the finals. “He’s been great” Sheedy said. “He’s really fired up and plays like he belongs here. “He’s only a whippet, but he’s dug the ball in and got the ball around shoulder length and the batsmen have been shocked with it. “He’s sort of been a bonus for us that we didn’t think we had.” McDonald produced some tidy bowling of his own with 3-37 off 12. He claimed the important wicket of Hollins. Sheedy finished with 2-64, including the scalp of Yates, while Patrick O’Malley snared 1-64.

58 MARIBYRNONG & HOBSONS BAY STAR WEEKLY \ FEBRUARY 21, 2018

Williamstown does not fear a big run chase. The Seagulls have scored more than 300 runs three times and have made the second-most runs of any team in the competition. Sheedy was confident his team could produce the goods. “We go into any chase really confident and think we can chase any score that’s in front of us,” he said. Meanwhile, Yarraville signalled its intentions for a speedy return to the top six with a gigantic score of 5-380 on day one against St Bernard’s at Yarraville Oval. The Eagles big day was set up with a 231-run partnership between captain-coach Matthew Love (114) and Joe Billings (119). Josh Turner made 53 not out late in the day to push the Eagles into a nigh on unassailable position in the game. In Premier Cricket, Footscray is well in control of proceedings against Kingston Hawthorn at Walter Galt Reserve. The Hawks only managed 176 and the Bulldogs were on 1-51 at stumps.

Another week, another shocking injury. The Western Bulldogs injury curse struck again in Saturday’s heartbreaking seven-point loss to the Adelaide Crows in the AFL Women’s at Norwood Oval. After the pain of season-ending knee injuries to rookies Daria Bannister and Isabel Huntington in the opening two rounds, the Bulldogs will now be without captain Katie Brennan for an extended period after an ankle injury sustained in the last quarter. It was salt rubbed into the wound for the Western Bulldogs, who were pipped at the post by the fast-finishing Crows after their superstar forward Erin Phillips put on a master class with a match-winning four-goal performance. The Bulldogs led most of the game, but the short turnaround from their Brisbane game meant they ran out of puff. Their inability to convert inside 50s – they had nine more entries than the Crows – was another telling factor. Star duo Emma Kearney (20 disposals and six tackles) and Ellie Blackburn (17 disposals and five tackles) were at their best as the Bulldogs leading possession getters, while half-forwards Monique Conti and Brooke Lochland were never too far away from the action. The Paul Groves-coached Bulldogs will host Carlton in the first AFLW pride game at the Victoria University Whitten Oval on Friday night at 7.05pm. Lance Jenkinson
