Drug treatment court for city By Helen Grimaux

Olivia Kurdus and her brother Danyal with parents Mick and Toni.

(CFA media)

Courage in face of fire A quick-thinking Aitken College student has been praised for her efforts to protect her family as flames engulfed their home during the Kilmore and Mickleham fires earlier this year. Last Monday, Olivia Kurdus’s efforts were recognised by the CFA, which presented the year 7 student with a bravery certificate. On February 9, Olivia, 12, was alerted to the nearby bushfire after reading a warning on the “FireReady” app on her phone. The warning said there was a fire “zero kilometres” away. Olivia told Star Weekly she immediately ran to the window where she saw bright red flames racing towards the back of the house. “I just saw smoke everywhere and [our] cows running in the back paddock,” she said. “I ran to mum who was on the other side of the house and told her to tell dad that we had to get out.”

Olivia then called the CFA, which told her to gather her family and leave immediately. By the time the family had fled the house the fire was only 20 metres from their back door. Her father Mick tried to hose the fire down, but the heat and smoke were “unbearable”. Mr Kurdus said while CFA officers had managed to save their home, their machinery shed and its contents were destroyed, equating to more than $80,000 in damage. The shed and machinery have since been replaced. Mr Kurdus said he and his wife Toni had never been more proud of Olivia. “She showed so much courage that day and we were so proud of her when she received her award,” he said. Melissa Cunningham

A new family drug treatment court will be set up in Broadmeadows to protect children and “rebuild” families torn apart by alcohol and drug abuse. Mental Health Minister Mary Wooldridge says the new court will be part of Broadmeadows Children’s Court once construction is finished at the end of next year. Ms Wooldridge says the court will work with parents whose drug addictions have played a significant part in their child protection involvement, to give them the best possible chance to rehabilitate and be reunited with their children. “Parental alcohol and drug abuse is often a key factor in the decision to remove a child from the care of their parents,” she said. “Parents referred and accepted into the Family Drug Treatment Court will be assisted to address their substance abuse issues and be able to access other supports which may be needed, including housing, mental health and family violence services.” Ms Wooldridge said the new court approach would offer a proactive, non-adversarial environment where court officers developed relationships with parents through frequent hearings. The parents would work closely with a multidisciplinary support team to monitor treatment for both themselves and their children. The parents will be required to attend court weekly and take part in drug testing up to three times a week as part of their individual parenting recovery plan.

The minister said the work of the new court would be supported by funding of $1.1 million as part of a three-year pilot to employ alcohol and drug clinicians and provide additional drug treatment beds at Odyssey House. Family drug treatment courts are common in the United States and evaluations show that parents have significantly higher treatment completion rates, children spend significantly less time in out-of-home care and reunification rates are considerably higher than those achieved through the conventional system.

Over the past three years the number of family violence units within Victoria Police has tripled, with more than 30 now operating across the state. Reported assaults arising from family incidents in the state rose from 16,740 to almost 20,000 between 2010 and 2012. This increased activity has led to enormous pressure on the court and welfare systems. Berry Street Victoria’s Northern Family and Domestic Violence Service, which supports women in northern Melbourne, received 2089 family violence referrals from police in 2009-10. By 2012-13, the figure was 5010. This financial year, referrals had reached 5700 with three months still to go.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Briefs

Individual rights at stake

Man charged with murder

It is disappointing that Hume council thinks so little of its residents to assume they are just champing at the bit to racially abuse their neighbours upon repeal of this anti-freedom legislation (Hume council fights changes to Racial Discrimination Act, Star Weekly May 20). They have shown a fundamental mistrust of individual citizens’ capacity to consider and judge ideas on their merits without the interference of government. The community itself is the best judge of what speech is worthwhile and what speech is undesirable, and will react accordingly to censure those who preach division and hatred. As President Obama said, “When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance you don’t really have to do anything, you just let them talk.” Government regulation of speech that merely offends, insults or humiliates is neither necessary nor desirable. It is a standard too open to interpretation, too easily abused, and places too great a limit on the right of the individual to freely express ideas. Stuart, via web

A place to have your say

Tammy of Sunbury (Letters, May 20) should be thankful that there is a group prepared to speak against this [Sunbury out of Hume] travesty. We were told we were voting for one thing: “determine the level of support”, then that we had voted for something totally different: a final decision on a major change that has no detail except the name. She should also be thankful there is now somewhere to express diverse opinions

Let us hope Star Weekly’s even-handed policy does not cost it advertising from the unknown source that bankrolled the “Yes” campaign. Don Hampshire, Sunbury I and other members of the former Sunbury out of Hume Community Consultative Committee are disappointed by the comments made by Ms Betty Kosanovic, President of the Broadmeadows Progress Association. These comments in no way reflect the various discussions at committee meetings and during the report writing phase. All 10 conclusions and recommendations contained in the Committee’s report were unanimously agreed to and supported by all committee members at three meetings. The time for expressing disagreement or a ‘minority’ opinion was during the report writing phase in discussion with the eight other committee members – not unilaterally after the process had concluded. Committee members are entitled to subsequently change their views previously expressed and are of course entitled to their own private opinions. However, committee members were reminded throughout the consultation process their role was only to listen and report the community’s views, not our own. Amanda Millar, MP Northern Victoria

Police have charged a Doreen man following a fatal shooting in Epping last week. Jumer Selimovski, 48, was charged with one count of murder last Thursday. The body of a 34-year-old Doreen man was found in Plowman Court, Epping, on May 17. Selimovski has been remanded in custody until September.

Speeding motorcyclist nabbed

He is expected to be charged with traffic offences including speeding.

Voice for the silent ones By Melissa Cunningham Improving the living conditions of people with disabilities and their carers will be high on the agenda of newly elected Whittlesea councillor Christine Stow. The Epping mother of two was sworn in as a councillor last Thursday night. Earlier this month, the Victorian Electoral Commission announced Cr Stow had won the north ward countback following the death of Cr Nicola Davis, who died in April after a short battle with cancer. Cr Stow has been a long-time community advocate for children with disabilities, their carers and single parents. She has helped establish a number of support groups in the city, including the Mernda Support and Wellness Group for women. Cr Stow is the full-time carer for daughter Imyjen, 13, who has Schwartz-Jampel syndrome, a rare genetic disorder characterised by muscle weakness, stiffness and abnormal bone development. “She doesn’t walk or talk so it’s important for me to be that voice for her and so many other people who have a disability in the community,” she said. Cr Stow said that while the Whittlesea council had been progressive in establishing a disability network and improving the conditions and opportunities for people with disabilities in Whittlesea, there was still a long way to go. “It’s a privilege to be able to serve the community,’’ Cr Stow said. “I think my experience as a mother of a child with a disability will be pivotal in advocating for changes from a community level that will hopefully be lobbied all the way to the top.”

Labor backs labour licence State opposition leader Daniel Andrews has promised that, if elected in November, he will legislate for the licensing and regulation of labour-hire companies in the face of rising complaints about dodgy operators. His pledge has drawn support from a union movement predicting more and more casualisation of employment as manufacturing and auto industry workers start joining the ranks of the under-employed. Mr Andrews said last week a state Labor government would create a licensing system for labour-hire companies to ensure that only properly accredited operators can provide third-party labour for Victorian workplaces. “Any labour-hire company seeking a licence will need to demonstrate capacity to comply with their payroll and superannuation obligations,” he said. Mr Andrews said that under Labor’s policy, compliance with workplace laws would be monitored by the Victorian government. The policy has received a thumbs up from the Victorian branch of the National Union of Workers, which has been involved in recent workplace disputes involving labour-hire contractors at Tullamarine and Somerton. Branch secretary Tim Kennedy said people in casual or insecure employment were vulnerable to employer exploitation and there had been increasing complaints from workers in Melbourne’s north.

Daniel Cetrola, 32, grew up in Westmeadows and lives in Dallas, one of the most challenging residential precincts in an area too commonly called The Bronx. It’s where many of Melbourne’s non-Englishspeaking and unresourced migrants head to. And it’s where Mr Cetroloa and other tutors in the Adult Migrant Education Program [AMEP] intend to make a difference as English teachers and helpmates. Mr Cetrola read an ad in his local paper asking for people to work with new migrants and people with limited English. He told his partner and his boss at engineering firm Adapt Australia about the ad. Now, having undergone weeks of training by AMEP staff, the three of them are helping migrants in their northern homes. Mr Cetrola works with a Roxburgh Park couple, aged in their 50s, who fled Iraq and joined the many Assyrian Chaldean people who have moved into the area in recent years. He spends an hour every week at their home helping them with their English conversation, and more. “It’s about life skills,” he said. “Do you know how to buy a bus ticket? Do you have a myki card? Is it registered? This is how we build up an awareness of services. “Often it’s as simple as pointing people in the direction of other people who can help.” Liesl Trenfield heads up Northern AMEP, which helps new migrants and refugees across the northern suburbs. The scheme offers all new migrants up to 510 hours of English tuition and also helps people prepare for employment or plan for further study at TAFE or university. It also teaches newly arrived people about

Hands up for our youth By Helen Grimaux Broadmeadows residents are being asked to pledge support for young people working their way through school and career decisions. A new youth campaign, from June 10-22, will be headed by a partnership of commercial and community sectors that aims to connect more people with local services. This could be by way of goods donated, especially sporting gear, bikes needing repair or unused computer equipment. People can also offer their expertise for workshops, such as cooking classes, or homework tutoring. Broadmeadows shopping centre will partner with Banksia Gardens Community Services. There will be ‘‘pledge walls’’ and a place to leave goods outside Coles, as well as youth workshops in bicycle repairs, street art, and theatre at the community hub near the shopping centre’s main entrance. “It’s about awareness-raising and giving us the capacity for fund-raising,” Banksia Gardens youth co-ordinator Jonathan Chee said. “This will be a stepping stone to working with local businesses, especially for being able to offer jobs training and employment opportunities.” Mr Chee said Banksia Gardens had already developed a “girls’ circle” for females aged 10-14, focused on healthy relationships and improving self-esteem. Banksia Gardens plans to develop a similar group for young men. Shopping centre management has already promised to extend its partnership with Banksia Gardens beyond the campaign period. The centre will also donate $1000 and funds raised by registrations for a fun run and walk. For more details about the campaign, visit www.broadmeadowsshopping.com.au.

Hadfield killing reward offered A $500,000 reward is being offered for information about the killing of 23-year-old Glenroy man Sameh Matar at Hadfield in July, 2010. Homicide squad detectives believe an anonymous Crime Stoppers caller may hold the key to the unsolved murder of Mr Matar, who was fatally shot during an argument between a group of people at a shopping strip in the early evening of July 24, 2010. Less than half an hour before he was shot, Mr Matar met a group of friends at shops in East Street, Hadfield. About 7pm, an argument erupted and he was shot. He died soon after at the Northern Hospital. The homicide squad’s Detective Inspector John Potter said an anonymous call in the days following the incident might still hold vital information. “I urge that person, and anyone else with information, to contact Crime Stoppers.” Detective Inspector Potter said people may be afraid to come forward, but their help was needed “to provide some answers to Sameh’s family”. He said the reward would be paid at the discretion of the chief commissioner, while the director of public prosecutions might consider indemnity from prosecution for anyone who provided the identity of the principal offender or offenders. Call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or www.crimestoppers.com.au.

This was followed by more top hits, A Mean Pair of Jeans and On the Loose Again, which Rhone performed at the World Popular Song Festival in Tokyo. Returning to Melbourne and another production of the King and I is a dream come true. The Melbourne production gives this

classic a 21st century makeover, which, Rhone believes, has enhanced the show and made it “much more interesting”. It stars four-time Gold Logie winner Lisa McCune, playing Anna Leonowens, opposite international stage and screen star Jason Scott Lee as the King. The production opens at the Princess Theatre on June 10 and runs for three months. For details visit www.thekingandimusical.com.au

It may come as a surprise that there is a prime minister living in Tullamarine. Marty Rhone has been a Broadway star for more than 60 years and chose his runway-side location because of regular commitments interstate and overseas. “I lived in Sydney most of my life, but in the late ’60s I lived in East St Kilda,” Rhone said. “It was the hub of the rock scene and a great place to be. So it’s a bit like coming home.” The talented actor and singer has secured the role of the Kralahome (or prime minister) in Opera Australia’s forthcoming production of The King and I at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre, directed by John Frost. A hit on Broadway in 1951, the original stage production of The King and I starred Gertrude Lawrence, who died during the season, and Yul Brynner, the “ultimate Hollywood superstar”, according to Rhone. It was in London in 1979 that a young Marty Rhone secured his first role in this world-famous production, working alongside the indefatigable Brynner and performing in front of the likes of Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman and royals, including Princess Grace of Monaco, King Hussein of Jordon and members of the British royal family. Rhone had already cut his teeth back home. Just out of school and only 17, he was signed to a seven-year recording contract with Spin Records, which also boasted the Bee Gees as a client. His first professional gig was as a support act to the Rolling Stones. National Service interrupted his career, but when he returned in 1972, Rhone became immersed in theatre including the original Sydney season of Godspell with John Waters.
