Smoke billowed across the north-west after the Department of Environment and Primary Industries and Parks Victoria conducted a 12-hectare planned burn in Brimbank Park. Almost 30 firefighters were involved in last Tuesday’s exercise, conducted between 11.15am and 3.10pm. Another planned burn was conducted in Keilor East. “Every burn we do now means we’re better prepared for future fire seasons,” department district manager Dan White said. \ BEN CAMERON

An eight-week consultation period facilities].” about the changes ends on May 21.
Community sports clubs could be slugged thousands of dollars extra in annual venue-hire fees under a draft Brimbank council policy. Clubs now pay a flat $160 annual fee to lease Brimbank’s 46 sports pavilions, 94 playing fields and 40 courts. But an updated lease agreement policy, released last Thursday, could lead to fees skyrocketing for some clubs. Council community well-being director
Sunshine Baseball Club president Glenn Letts said he feared the increases could greatly affect programs. The club could face an annual fee of $1500 to hire two grounds, while a pavilion could cost $3698 to exclusively lease per year. ‘‘It’s hard enough [running a club],’’ Mr Letts said. ‘‘Kids won’t play [if fees go up].’’ The council will hold two information sessions at the Visy Cares Hub in Sunshine on April 10 and 14 from 6.30pm. \ BEN CAMERON

preference for community-oriented services like Victoria University or health agencies. Mr Watson said the council would look to sell the council building in Sunshine in an agreement with VicTrack, which owns half of the land. “We’re talking to VicTrack and it’s better to sell the land as one package rather than bits and pieces.”
Sunshine’s $52 million community and civic centre will save Brimbank council millions of dollars in the long run, according to chairman John Watson. Unveiling designs last Thursday, Mr Watson said he was confident the council would save money by moving all of its staff to the Hampshire Road site. He said the seven-storey centre, expected to open in June 2016, would be “one of the most outstanding buildings in Melbourne’s west”. Mr Watson said having staff driving between the present Sunshine and Keilor offices created significant occupational health and safety issues. “Council is incredibly fragmented right now, which creates inefficiencies and costs in downtime,’’ he said. Mr Watson said he could understand community concerns about the council shelling out tens of millions of dollars on a building. “The question is, however, can we afford not to do it?” The new centre will also raise revenue by housing tenants on floors two through six, although the council has indicated a

jail facilities ‘inadequate’ Plans for a 75-bed mental health unit for prisoners at a new men’s jail being built in Ravenhall are “woefully inadequate”, according to the Victorian Institute of Forensic Mental Health (Forensicare). A Victorian Ombudsman’s report has recommended a specialist unit for prisoners with intellectual disabilities. With the report finding the rate of mental health disorders among Victorian prisoners is three to five times greater than in the community, Forensicare chief executive Tom Dalton said the Ravenhall unit would buckle. “In the absence of some significant shift in public policy in relation to the imprisonment of offenders, the apprehension of parolees and the denial of parole to an increasing number of prisoners, by the time Ravenhall opens that number of mental health beds … will be woefully inadequate.” \
Cheaper train fares would ease traffic congestion if commuters did the right thing and stopped driving their cars to train stations, according to a Brimbank public transport advocate.

new, higher honour for pitbull resister
world gains from marilyn’s ‘escape’
A Burnside man will receive an Australian bravery award after stepping in to stop a dog that attacked a woman and her grandson. Last week, Governor-General Quentin Bryce said that Damian Hall, who received a Victorian bravery award in 2012, would receive a national honour for his selfless actions. “It is hard to put into words,” Mr Hall (pictured) said of the news. “I received a letter before Christmas and I was a bit shocked and overwhelmed. It brings back a lot of memories.” Mr Hall was driving on Westwood Drive in Burnside on November 17, 2011 when he saw a woman fighting off a pitbull terrier that was attacking a baby inside a pram. He rushed to help the pair and struck the dog several times before it began to attack him. A passerby pulled up in a ute to help. The woman and child were able to climb inside the vehicle, while Mr Hall jumped onto the tray of the ute to get out of harm’s way. He then stopped the dog from attacking a neighbour who had come outside to assist. “When it first happened, people were asking, ‘what were you thinking?’” Mr Hall said. “I wasn’t thinking, you just get it done.’’
Mr Hall said he didn’t know the victim and her family before the incident, but that had changed. “I know her family well; the young boy is the same age as my son.”
The grandmother was also honoured with a commendation for her role in stopping the attack. \ TARA MURRAY
Professor Marilyn Anderson is glad she was born without the Y chromosome. Born in Sunshine, raised in Deer Park and educated in St Albans, the Keilor resident and La Trobe University academic says her gender ensured she wasn’t destined for the local chemical factory. “Most of the people who lived in Deer Park worked for ICI, and their children expected to find employment there when they finished school,” Professor Anderson said. ‘‘I didn’t know any women who stayed in the workforce after they were married, so I had a freedom to study whatever I liked during my education at primary and secondary school as I wasn’t expected to have a career.” Nearly 50 years after becoming the first in her family to study at university, Professor Anderson was among 20 women added to the Victorian Honour Roll of Women in March. The nomination recognised 35 years’ scientific research in plant biochemistry and genetics, with her work paving the way for worldwide research into disease and insect-resistant crops. \ BC

BRIEFS CHARGES OVER BABY’S DEATH An 18-year-old woman has been charged over the death of a newborn baby found hidden in bushes in St Albans. The baby was found wrapped in a blanket under a tree last month. Police questioned an 18-year-old about the baby but never confirmed if she was related to the child. The woman, from Deer Park, has been charged with child homicide, a police spokeswoman said. She was expected to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on Friday. \ train fight witnesses sought Police are urging witnesses to come forward after a punch-up between two men caused major delays on the Sunbury train line. The fight occurred on a train as it pulled into Ginifer station about 2.10pm on March 24. Despite the brawl being captured on video and uploaded to social media, no one who witnessed the incident wanted to talk to police. Police also spoke to the men involved in the altercation, but they did not provide statements. Footage posted on Facebook shows two men near the train doors exchanging abuse before one of the men, dressed in a blue T-shirt, throws the first punch. The fight caused a 30-minute delay on the Sunbury line while the driver waited for police to arrive. A Metro spokeswoman said a

The man, aged in his 30s, was stopped on Caroline Springs Boulevard about midday on March 23. He was also interviewed about a series of thefts in the area and subsequently charged with theft from, and of, a motor vehicle. He will appear in Sunshine Magistrates Court in August. \ bike storage at station Temporary bicycle storage areas will be available on both sides of Sunshine railway station, under the Hampshire Road bridge, until new racks are installed on April 14.

Eye in the sky Vanessa O’Hanlon shines in any weather, writes SARAH HARRIS
he slim blonde is delivering a piece to camera when from behind her lurches a snarling clutch of lost souls, blood streaming down their faces, arms outstretched. You won’t find it on Vanessa O’Hanlon’s official bio, but this is her secret zombie flick. Blink and you will miss her appearance in Dead Country – a movie far more horrible than horrifying which sank pretty much without trace upon release in 2008. Confronted with evidence from her undead past, the national weather presenter for ABC News Breakfast is remarkably gracious. “I don’t think I ever even saw it,” she laughs. “It’s just a tiny reporter part that someone asked me to do and I agreed to before I realised there would be zombies surrounding me.” While it’s highly unlikely that she’ll ever so easily fall into their clutches again, the zombie encounter underscores O’Hanlon’s willingness to step out of her comfort zone. Whether it’s climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, trekking the Kokoda Track, encountering gorillas in Uganda, travelling solo to Sarajevo, at the gym, or the hands-on renovation of a four-bedroom home in North Melbourne, O’Hanlon likes to push herself. She describes her steady ascent from Melton schoolgirl community radio volunteer to one of the national broadcaster’s more popular faces as one of “sheer determination”.

For seven years, on and off, she reported on and filmed real-time road conditions, traffic congestion and accidents for all major radio and television stations including regular spots on Sunrise and the Channel 10 news. During that time she also worked as a host of Melbourne After Dark on Mix 101.1 and

many keys to the pefect purchase INVESTORS \ smarties look beyond the gold standard of location, writes ANGELA ALLAN
here’s a saying that “location is everything”, but is that the main thing investors look for when buying a property? There are actually several factors investors look at before placing a bid for a property. The investor will be considering buyers and what they need, so if it’s a residential property in a suburban area tailored to families, nearby services – including schools, transport and parks – are a plus. The investor will also consider whether the property is for holiday-makers or will become a family’s everyday home in determining which local features will be most desirable. And investors usually choose properties within an 11-kilometre radius of a capital city’s CBD, as these are considered the most sought-after. High-growth corridors close to key employment and transport zones are also popular with investors as the INVESTORS residence won’t stay vacant; rather, it will generate LIke to buy rent straight away. within 11km Using this information, an investor has to consider of a cbd which properties in which suburbs will give them the most revenue now and in the future. Real estate is also subject to trends, and the market determines what investors will or won’t purchase – the rate of vacancy in a particular suburb can signify things have gone awry. The size of the land block, character and number of bedrooms and bathrooms also come into play. Other factors investors consider are crime rate and neighbourhood safety, local schools and their reputation, access to jobs and the unemployment rate, and building permits and future stamp duty (which can be up to 6 per cent) and any legal or development either by government or council. conveyancing fees, but look towards property improvements Make no mistake: investors want to make money and turn a they may need to pay for, and whether these are worth the profit. Investors not only have to put money upfront, including cost spent on the improvements. The resale value of the home
– which is determined by the value of money, the market conditions and any additions or improvements planned – are all factors that will go in to determining the resale value of the property and will affect the investor’s bottom line. \

Draft Sports Facility Hire, Licences and Leases Agreement Policy Have your say Brimbank City Council is seeking community feedback on an updated draft Sports Facility Hire, Licences and Leases Agreement Policy that will ensure fair and equitable access and use of community sporting facilities and reserves in the City, and would benefit the entire community significantly. The current Policy has been reviewed and updated to provide Council with a structured platform to enter into new formal agreements with all sports clubs for the future. Under the proposed policy, the new agreements will significantly benefit the Brimbank community and clubs as they will focus on clubs actively engaging with the entire Brimbank community to provide participation opportunities in addition to covering the operational requirements of clubs and Council. High level consultation with sports clubs has taken place over a number of years at Club Development Network meetings regarding the need for an updated policy relating to lease and licence agreements and associated user fees and charges. Council will consult further over April and May 2014 with sports clubs on the Policy and associated Guidelines. As part of the consultations, Council will also consult with state sporting associations through the agreement development process to ensure that the agreements offered by Council are understood by the state sporting bodies. The updated policy is expected to benefit the Brimbank community by: • ensuring optimal use of sporting facilities to meet community needs. • facilitating a shared approach (between club and Council) to the costs of managing and maintaining sporting facilities through fair and reasonable charges for use. • encouraging clubs to actively engage with the entire Brimbank community by providing participation opportunities. Under the new policy this community development work would qualify clubs to pay subsidised Council fees that recognise this contribution. Want to know more? Council is undertaking eight weeks of consultation before it considers the introduction of the new policy. • Visit Council’s customer services centres • Visit brimbank.vic.gov.au/Community/have your say

season starts with a bang WRFL
Opening night at Kings Park Reserve has evolved into the showpiece event on the Western Region Football League’s regular season calendar. St Albans has driven the concept for the past three years with first-class facilities, bustling crowds and an electric atmosphere. And with Deer Park the visiting club last year, the concept was given an added boost. The Lions will be first-night visitors again this Friday, and will bring an exhilarating mix of local rivalry, a reigning premiers tag and must-see former AFL stars. Their recruiting spree during the summer, including the arrivals of Brent Guerra, Ryan Hargrave and Bret Thornton, has created a love-’em-or-hate-’em impulse, a talking point that should drive the biggest crowd in Saints’ opening-night history. Saints coach Marcus Barclay is excited at the prospect of facing the Lions at full strength, knowing it will attract more fans to the game, present the ultimate challenge for his players and allow them to experience an atmosphere that can’t be replicated in a run-of-the-mill Saturday afternoon game. “The Friday night game is a real positive for us,” Barclay told the Weekly. “It’s been a while since the club has played in a grand final or won a premiership, I think it was 2001, so at the stage we’re at, this is as close as it gets to a big finals game.

“The fact that it is Deer Park .with all the talk about them, we think it’s going to be a pretty big night.” The Saints broke through for a finals appearance last season with a squad that had good quality veterans and up-and-coming youngsters but few in the middle years. “We had real experienced players, 26 and above, and good kids, 18, 19 and 20, but a gap we needed to bridge,” Barclay said. The Saints went some way to filling the void by recruiting bigger-bodied footballers to help the younger players in the physical battles. The Stephens brothers - Sam and James - will help in this department. They’re well known across the west as premiership players at Albion and can play a number of roles. “They both have a really good work ethic,” Barclay said. Gordon Hillsdon, a virtually unknown half forward/onballer from EDFL second-tier side Glenroy, may be in the round one starting line-up after an outstanding preseason. Chris Raftopoulos, recruited from Keilor, is another with a hard edge, while former VFL player Dion Lawson adds class to the midfield. “It’s not a big number of recruits, but they’re all big-bodied, really strong players who have a presence on the field,” Barclay said. “We think that’s what sort of cost us in the elimination final against Altona, the young guys weren’t [physically] ready.” The first bounce is at 7.45pm. \ LANCE JENKINSON

The Western Region Football League climbed one place up the metro league rankings with a six-goal win against the Southern Football League in the AFL Victoria Metropolitan Championships at Visy Park on Saturday. The Brett Jacobs-coached WRFL lifted from fifth to fourth and will feature in next year’s third-place playoff against the powerful Eastern Football League, which dropped a position after losing to the VAFA. The WRFL led at all changes against the SFL to win 11.16 (82) to 6.10 (46). Two-goal Lee Spiteri, from Altona, claimed best-afield honours for the WRFL. Captain Jason Cloke, Brad Sutcliffe, Kwame McHarg, Matthew Dean and Lucas Hill were also standouts. Four players - Spiteri, McHarg, Mitch Turnbull and Tim Jenkins - booted two goals. Meanwhile, the WRFL launched its new season at the Yarraville Club on Wednesday night, when expansion club Tarneit Titans was officially welcomed. During the night it was announced that Sherrin balls would be used this season and members of the interleague squad were presented with their jumpers ahead of the match against the SFL. \ LJ

colosimo is knights’ shining armour NPL soccer
When Melbourne Knights penalty specialist Jacob Colosimo generously handed hat-trick teammate Rodrigo Covarrubias a spot kick in the season opener - which Covarrubias promptly missed - he was given a firm rebuke by the coaching staff. So when the Knights were awarded a second penalty in as many National Premier League games in the 2-0 win against Pascoe Vale at Hosken Reserve on Friday night, Colosimo issued a firm ‘get out of my way’ to the other 10 players. With the score at 0-0 and the off-colour Knights in a spot of bother for the first time this season, Colosimo stepped up and hit the back of the net.
He added a second in open play to ensure his club dodged a bullet and picked up three hard-earned points on a testing road trip. Knights captain Ben Surey admitted the game was far from cut and dried before Colosimo’s brace. “You just have to scrap it out sometimes,” he told the Weekly. The Knights have barely put a foot wrong in this young season. They hit all their preseason marks and clinched wins in the opening rounds of the NPL and the Dockerty Cup. There was cause for concern this time when coach Andrew Marth greeted his players in the rooms at the half-time break. “We were a little bit fortunate to go into the break 0-0,” Surey said. “We were letting them play a little bit more than we usually want and we were giving it away quite cheaply.
lightning gets back on track VNL netball
VU-Western Lightning breathed a sigh of relief after snapping a worrying two-game losing skid on Wednesday night. Lightning’s 61-42 win over cellar-dweller Ballarat Pride put Lightning back in the top four in the Victorian Netball League championship and proved it can get the job done without star goalkeeper Fiona Themann. Themann has moved to Scotland on her dual-citizen passport in a bid to be part of that nation’s Commonwealth Games team later this year. “I’m really rapt and proud of her,” Lightning coach Matt Hills told the Weekly. “She has taken 12 months off from her school teaching and now she’s living the dream. “It’s a massive loss for us because Brooke [Thompson] and Fiona have arguably been the best defensive group in the competition.” The Lightning brought in a capable replacement in Samoan international Sononu Robertson to fill the void. But Robertson was unavailable to play against the Pride because of international commitments. Her absence gave teenager Lucy Vercher an opportunity. Vercher took a while to find her feet early in the game but appeared more settled in a new role after half-time. After leaking 24 goals in the first half, the Lightning coughed up just 18 after the break. “Lucy has been playing a lot of wing defence and goal defence in the younger
division 1 team,” Hills said. “It’s a massive step up from that level and a big change for her to go back to a position she played in under-19s, but she worked really hard.” With a weaker back end on paper, the Lightning has to compensate with added scoring power and did that against Pride with a season-high 61 goals. Amelia Hills was a thorn in the side of her opponents in a stunning mid-court display, while goalers Kate Thompson (45 from 59) and Sophie Barr (16 from 19) posted big numbers. While pleased with victory, Hills knows that for his side to cause an upset against unbeaten reigning premiers City West Falcons this week, his players will need to go up another level on both ends of the court. “We’re going to have to be at our very best if you look at their [Falcons’} current form,” he said. “We always look forward to that challenge and we’ve got a great group of girls that really want to work hard for each other.” Meanwhile, the Falcons made it seven from seven with a 53-34 win against the Southern Saints. The Falcons again rolled out a three-pronged attack through Kath Knott (23 from 27), Alice Teague-Neeld (20 from 21) and Julia Woolley (10 from 13). \. LANCE JENKINSON
Goal glut: Kate Thompson scored 45 goals in the rout. (DARREN HOWE)
“We couldn’t get into any rhythm in the first half, but they also made it hard, pressured right up and forced us into playing long balls rather than passing to feet.” It was as if a weight was taken off the shoulders of the Knights players when James McGarry was brought down in the box by Vales goalkeeper Stefaan Sardelic and Colosimo scored from the spot. The Knights began to find their groove and create opportunities and it finally told when Daniel Visevic placed a well-weighted ball behind the defence for Colosimo to score the game-clinching goal. While it was not pretty and it took a resolute performances from goalkeeper Christopher May and centre half Antun Kovacic to complete the task, the Knights can
be content with three valuable points that will be hard to come by for visiting teams to Hosken Reserve this season. With six points from six, the Knights will go into the clash with Werribee City at Knights Stadium on Sunday as hot favourites. But Surey warned there would be no easy games in the newly formed NPL. “You’ve got to make sure you prepare properly because if you go in with the wrong attitude, you’ll get punished,” he said. Meanwhile, 10-man Dandenong Thunder shocked Green Gully Cavaliers 1-0 at George Andrews Reserve. The Cavs return home to Green Gully Reserve on Saturday for a massive round three clash with South Melbourne. \ LANCE JENKINSON
woeful westgate gets the blues state league soccer
Westgate dropped its home opener 4-0 in ugly fashion against Fawkner Blues in the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 1 at Ardeer Reserve on Friday night. The game was as good as over at half time with the Gate staring a three-goal deficit in the face. The Gate will go back to the drawing board in preparation for Saturday’s big derby, away to Cairnlea at Cairnlea Park. Cairnlea got its first points of the season in a 2-2 rollercoaster with Sunbury United at Langama Park. Keilor Park sunk 2-0 to title contenders Moreland City at Keilor Park Recreation Reserve. In state league 2, Westvale and Heidelberg Stars could not be separated, drawing 2-2 at McKechnie Reserve. North Sunshine Eagles lost 2-1 to a second half goal against Moreland United at Moomba Park Reserve. Western Eagles fought back after trailing by two goals but still went down 3-2 to Geelong Rangers in a state league 3 goalfest at Myers Reserve. But there was joy for Spring Hills in state league 5, beating Melbourne 2-1 with goals by Tom Markovski and Julian Grech at Springside Recreational Reserve. In NPL1, Sunshine George Cross made it two wins from two starts with a 1-0 victory against Avondale Heights at Chaplin Reserve. Bobby Lojanica scored the winner for Georgies from the penalty spot after 38 minutes when Delfin Mosibe was brought down. \ LJ APRIL 1, 2014 \ BRIMBANK & NORTH WEST WEEKLY 39
