Federation Square and goes along the Yarra River and back. As well as organising a team for the walk, we also have people doing a barbecue and we have raised $10,000 for Parkinson’s research so far. I find volunteering with these organisations very helpful for me. It gives me something to think about. Previously I have been involved in a physical aspect as well, but now my body won’t allow it and I am on the administration side helping to run committees and planning the management of things. It is very rewarding. One of the huge benefits is being able to meet people and make good friends while giving something back. I owe thanks to my wife Helen and my family for all their support and help with my work.

PROFILE TERRY ROLLESTON, 76, WHAT I LIKE ABOUT BOROONDARA: It is a beautiful place with great facilities and parklands. WHAT I’D CHANGE: I don’t think I would change a thing.

was not expecting to receive the Citizen of the Year Award on Australia Day. I felt surprised and humbled. I have been a member of the Rotary Club of Glenferrie for 20 years. The first project I was involved with was the Boroondara Family Network, which looks after disadvantaged families when they move to Melbourne and offers help to people who don’t have family support. I worked with the group, which is still running, for around four years and enjoyed being involved immensely. The initiative has helped a lot of families over the years. In 2003, the Rotary Club was asked by the council to help set up the Boroondara Farmers Market and I became the co-ordinator of the committee and have been ever since. In the past 10 years we have held 123 markets and raised more than $850,000, which has gone back into the community in various forms. I have also been involved in Boroondara Cares, an organisation founded to raise money for the drought-affected communities in Moira shire in the north of the state. We formed a committee of the nine Rotary clubs in Boroondara and raised $110,000. The group is in the process of being reactivated to look at raising money for other causes. In 2005 I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. There are two other members of the Rotary Club who also have the disease and the three of us work hard to raise money for Parkinson’s Victoria Unity Walk each year. The walk starts at

Glenferrie traders to be polled on outdoor smoking ban proposal A CITY of Melbourne proposal to ban smoking in all public areas has prompted a local traders’ group to canvass support for a similar move in Boroondara. In an informal survey, the Glenferrie Shopping Centre Association will ask its retailers and restaurateurs if they would back a ban on smoking in the street and at venues with out-

door eating and drinking areas. Association co-ordinator Steve Williams said a ban would be a nuisance mainly for nightclub patrons, who have to leave the premises if they want to smoke, and for some cafes. “[If there is a ban] I don’t think it would affect our businesses too much, and if anything it would make the streets cleaner,” Mr Williams, a

smoker, said. “I see smokers at some outdoor cafes, but I know that other people would like to sit outside as well. Most smokers will realise that [restrictions] are a good thing for them and the community.” The Glenferrie area has five tobacco shops and a cigar bar. The City of Melbourne move was proposed by Councillor Richard Fos-

ter. Lord mayor Robert Doyle said a ban would be unenforceable and he encouraged restaurants and bars to try a voluntary smoking ban. Boroondara council’s director of city planning, John Luppino, said Boroondara’s ban on smoking in many council-controlled public spaces – including playgrounds – had strong community support but

there were no plans to extend it. “Should this arise, full public consultation, including affected businesses, will be undertaken,” Mr Luppino said. “Smoking is a very serious public health issue and this has prompted our action to date rather than the litter caused by cigarette butts.” ALISON BARCLAY

Full screen ahead as Lido wins on parking abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

HAWTHORN’S new Lido Cinemas expects its eight screens to flicker to life by the end of the year after owner Eddie Tamir won his 18-month battle for a permit for the controversial project. Mr Tamir won his third and final appeal at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal in November when the tribunal waived Boroondara council’s requirement that the Lido provide 19 car spaces in or near its site at 673 Glenferrie Road. VCAT said most cinema customers would be attending evening sessions, when parking would be available in the nearby council car park, or they could walk or take public transport. The $5.5 million project is seeking a builder, with quotes due by February 12. Mr Tamir said that despite the long VCAT battle, the cinema project was supported by the community. ‘‘Everybody loves old cinemas, and that includes councils and resid-

ents,’’ Mr Tamir said. ‘‘You have to go through the meat-and-potatoes issues of planning and parking and signs, but at the end of the day it’s an old cinema building we love and we are planning to resurrect it and bring it into the contemporary era.’’ Mr Tamir, owner of Classic Cinema in Elsternwick Classic and Cameo Cinemas in Belgrave, bought the former Lido Theatre in the Glen building in 2010. Architect Aidan Halloran, a director of ITN Architects, said a former dance studio at the front of the building will become the Lido’s foyer and a marble staircase – dating from the building’s Edwardian days as the Glen and Palace Theatre – would be retained. It has a permit for 927 seats across eight cinemas. “There will be a strong differentiation between old and new,’’ Mr Halloran said. ‘‘Unfortunately the highly decorative Edwardian fac¸ade was stripped during an earlier renovation but the original ceiling has an interesting coffered design.’’

Roaring to start new year revelry BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

LIONS and snakes are seldom friends in the wild, but they’ll strike a colourful truce when the Chinese Year of the Snake rises this weekend. Mont Albert’s Brendon Lee, Daniel Peterson and Denning Rajit will be among the 20-strong Hong De Lion Dance Association members shaking their manes, thumping drums and channelling health, wealth and happiness ahead of the new lunar year on February 10. According to Chinese legend, a snake in the house is a good omen because it means your family will not starve. But Hong De founder (and Daniel’s mother) Cecilia Hsieh has a different interpretation. “Snakes tend to represent poison as well; that’s why we have specific performances to drive poison away and bring good luck to places such

as restaurants,” said Ms Hsieh, whose first new year gig will be a Saturday night show at the Old Kingdom restaurant in Surrey Hills. Just five years old, Hong De is one of Melbourne’s largest lion dance troupes, with members aged 13 to 50. The teenage members are prized for their nimble physique, ideal for executing the lions’ boisterous twists and turns. ‘‘Some come to us with basic lion dance skills, and some we have to teach from scratch,’’ Ms Hsieh said. “They learn music first; you can’t dance without understanding the music.” Hong De will also perform at Centro Box Hill on February 9 at 3pm, and again at the Old Kingdom on February 10 at 6.30pm. A Doncaster Tattslotto outlet has booked Hong De to dance outside its doors this weekend. “A big division one prize was won there recently, and they’re hoping for more,” Ms Hsieh said.

Battle for council power THE battle over Camberwell’s Target centre redevelopment is likely to determine how much power local government can have over how private property is used. The battle resumes in Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal next week. At stake is councils’ right to make “173 agreements” – deals with landowners under S173 of the Planning and Environment Act to limit land use for certain purposes, such as schools or shops. The owner of the Camberwell building, which houses Target, Safeway and a multi-storey car park, is seeking to enclose part of the car park and add 16 shops and a third large retailer. VCAT approved the plans as long as the owner, Sixty-Fifth Eternity Pty Ltd, got Boroondara council’s permission to change or break its 173 agreement. The council has engaged senior counsel to fight the case, which resumes on February 11. ALISON BARCLAY

VOX POP DO YOU THINK THE COUNCIL’S ON-CALL HARD RUBBISH COLLECTION SERVICE IS WORKING WELL? SAMANTHA CORNEHLS, Hawthorn East I didn’t realise they’d changed the service. That would explain why there’s such a build-up on my street.

EDWENA DIXON, Hawthorn I didn’t even know about it, so I guess it can’t be that effective.

DAVID BLAYN, Balwyn No, I don’t. I think the council isn’t doing a very good job of making people aware of the change.

EDDIE JIM

Guy denies secret planning forum BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

THE state government has denied organising a secret forum to discuss its metropolitan planning strategy, saying the March event will be open to the public. The forum for 600 people was promoted in a Planning Institute of Australia newsletter before it was announced on the Planning Depart-

ment’s website, sparking anger among community groups. Protectors of Public Lands secretary Julianne Bell said in a letter to RL (Letters, page 10) she was misled into thinking it was restricted to town planners. “The good minister (Planning Minister Matthew Guy) has not replied to our letter of inquiry but left us to search the website of his department,” Ms Bell wrote.

“We find that a ‘toolkit’ to run a ‘consultation’ has been provided plus a form to apply for a government ‘facilitator��� to run the session. This is guided democracy at its very best, reminiscent of the Soviets.” But Mr Guy said anyone could register to attend the forum. ‘‘The Planning Institute of Australia function is no different from the consultation event I held for community groups late last year, albeit

this one is being hosted by PIA,’’ Mr Guy said. He said community groups seeking to cover the cost of hall hire or surveys should approach the department for a share of the funds promised in November. Submissions on the planning strategy are to be submitted by March 28, with Boroondara council to name mandatory height limits as its top priority.

A friend fur life IT seems those who received a fourlegged friend for Christmas might have made a companion for life rather than a playmate for a while. Boroondara Dog Pound has been enjoying a particularly quiet period during what can be a busy time for pounds after the seasonal festivities. Boroondara council’s city planning director John Luppino said just one dog was impounded and unclaimed in January compared with five in January 2012. Mr Luppino said the council offered a range of material to encourage responsible pet ownership. The material had proved very popular with new owners. Margaret Burns, manager of the Save-A-Dog Scheme that operates out of the Glen Iris pound, warned figures could rise in winter when people have had their pets longer and have to walk them in bad weather.

Vertical and roof gardens and masses more street trees will be needed to keep Boroondara leafy amid climate change and high-density development, our newest Officer of the Order of Australia says. Dr Philip Moors (pictured), chief executive of the Royal Botanic Gardens for 20 years before he retired in November, says that with subdivisions increasing, we need to make better use of shrinking suburban gardens by planting drought-hardy species and harvesting stormwater. ‘‘We need to have a bit of balance between the need to have more dense occupation of land coupled with greening that land,” the Balwyn North resident said. “Vertical gardens, turf gardens, roof gardens: there are lots of ways to green buildings without needing to take up a quarter-acre block. “House sizes are getting bigger in terms of the proportion of the block they occupy, but particularly in Boroondara where larger blocks are being subdivided. I think, that higher density is the right way to go, because we can’t have sprawling cities forever. I am in favour of higher density.’’

Billabong bridge up in the air abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

THE fate of a new bridge that would help cyclists and pedestrians avoid the Chandler Highway hangs in a mere 40 centimetres of air. That’s the height difference between what Parks Victoria and Boroondara want for the bridge proposed to link the Darebin Creek Trail with the Yarra Trail via Kew East’s Willsmere-Chandler Park. The council previously granted a permit for a bridge of no more than 12.2 metres high, but Parks Victoria has applied for a permit extension and wants the bridge to be 12.6 metres. The council will decide on the application this month. Mayor Jack Wegman said council officers had warned of visual bulk and danger to the Kew Billabong environment. “More to the point, the higher the bridge goes, the longer and bigger the asphalt path,’’ Cr Wegman said.

“We all support the concept of a bridge, because it is in principle a good idea to join up the bike paths. It is the location that concerns us. ‘‘There may be up to 4000 cyclists a day, and these people probably don’t have much of a stake in the area. ‘‘The local community is being asked to sacrifice its amenity in the interests of what could be called a greater good.” The bridge will be one of four built during the $18 million project announced by the state government in December. Cyclists, including the Boroondara Bicycle Users Group, have started an online campaign to back the project, with many supporters saying the bridge would help children from Fairfield and Alphington ride safely to schools in Kew and Balwyn. “It’s about safety for cyclists, but also about taking cyclists off those busy roads, which is great for motorists, too,” one cyclist commented.

Unkindest cut for park palms TWO 100-year-old St Kilda Canary Island date palms have been ordered to be cut down for safety reasons. The palms, in Catani Gardens, were earmarked for emergency removal after several cavities were discovered in their trunks, making them weak and unstable. The heads of the palms were removed on January 25 by the council’s tree contractor and the stumps will be removed soon. Port Phillip mayor Amanda Stevens said it is believed cockatoos were responsible for the damage. “The damage meant the palms were no longer safe and posed a potential hazard to the public,” Cr Stevens said. She said the palms would be replaced with the same species within 12 months. Heritage Victoria and the Department of Sustainability and Environment signed off on the removal. A Heritage Victoria spokeswoman said the trees were severely damaged and posed a health and safety risk.

Maria’s lucky to be home safe BY BEAU DONELLY bdonelly@mmpgroup.com.au

MARIA Barrios was living under a tree just off the Nepean Highway when she decided to end her life. She hadn’t eaten for a month and weighed less than 40 kilograms when she gave up hope in 2011. “I decided to kill myself,” says Ms Barrios, 63, who fled to Melbourne after suffering years of domestic violence in Western Australia Ms Barrios is one of 4000 clients who accessed HomeGround housing support services in St Kilda last year. The number of people waiting for housing on the St Kilda office’s priority list – people requiring urgent assistance – tripled from 109 in July to 355 last month. Of those, more than half are considered vulnerable and one-fifth are homeless families with children.

SES LOCALS ANSWER SOS Two Malvern SES volunteers have spoken of a ‘‘frantic’’ four days providing vital support to emergency crews tackling raging bushfires in East Gippsland. Clifford Heri (pictured right) and Victor Liaw were deployed to the Heyfield CFA staging area, which provided a base camp for a 500-strong team of emergency volunteers and firefighters, equipment replacement, 24-hour catering and first-aid and medical services. ‘‘On our first 12-hour shift we ushered through more than 400 firefighting and support vehicles to the fire zones,’’ Mr Heri said.

AT HOME: Maria Barrios says HomeGround turned her life around HomeGround Services chief executive Heather Holst said there was a lack of safe and affordable housing and limited support services. “We’ve only been tracking demand in this way for six months, but we are already seeing an accumulation of people waiting for help,” she said. Ms Barrios, who credits HomeGround with turning her life around, works as a cook at Elwood High and volunteers at Prahran Mission.

HISTORY IN THE PAST Historians such as Stella Barber (pictured) are a rare breed, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Employment in Culture publication. Only 528 people recorded the profession as their main job in the 2011 census. Ms Barber has been a historian for 25 years and her eight published books include a history of Prahran Library and a history of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. She said being a historian was a hard way to make a living. Fees recommended by the Australian Council of Professional Historians Association go from $67 an hour up to $189 for a level four qualified historian with at least 10 years’ experience. ‘‘Rarely do you find a client who is happy to pay those amounts,” she said.

Safety fear on staff cuts CUTS to customer service staff on key Sandringham line stations could compromise commuter safety, according to the Public Transport Users Association. Metro confirmed last week that six of the 12 staff at stations during the morning peak had been moved to a control room at Sandringham Station. The stations – Prahran, Windsor, Balaclava, Ripponlea, North Brighton and Middle Brighton – will each have one attendant instead of two. Metro spokeswoman Larisa Tait said commuters could press the red button on platforms to speak to staff. “To respond more quickly to customers pressing the red button, we needed to allocate more staff resources to these control rooms.” But PTUA president Tony Morton said: ‘‘Replacing people with a red button doesn’t exactly give the same impression of safety.’’ BEAU DONELLY

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ SHHH, IT’S A SECRET In your article (‘‘Pitch in on planning’’, RL, January 30) we are advised that: Planning Minister Matthew Guy is ‘‘yet to make campaign funds available,’’ so we can hold our very own community consultations on the Metropolitan Planning Strategy for Melbourne. Don’t hold your breathe — it will never happen. Instead, the government is to hold a monster consultation on February 23 for 600 people with 75 facilitators who will play host at the individual tables. (They will receive a day’s training and will be paid $100.) This mega consultation was not advertised publicly but restricted, apparently, to a January news bulletin put out by the Planning Institute of Australia. The good minister has not replied to our letter of enquiry but left us to search the website of his department. We found that a ‘‘toolkit’’ to run a ‘‘consultation’’ has been provided plus a form to apply for a government ‘‘facilitator’’ to run

the session. This is guided democracy at its very best, reminiscent of the Soviets. Julianne Bell / secretary, Protectors of Public Lands Victoria

■ CHOOSE VEGAN Yet another study — this one conducted by scientists with Flinders University — indicates that people who work in abattoirs tend to be violent towards humans as well. Some meatworkers even have aggression levels on par with prisoners. More violent crimes often occur in towns after an abattoir moves in. Researchers believe that killing animals — sentient beings who are made of flesh, bone, and blood, just as you and I are – desensitises labourers to violence. The wise philosopher Pythagoras said: “As long as people massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.” Workers at a New South Wales meat plant were last year caught on

video bashing pigs to death, other animals were being kicked and sheep were being left to die slowly on tables. A Victorian abattoir was closed down after a video showed abattoir workers sticking electric stun prods into the eyes and noses of the animals. Slaughtering animals is a dirty, dangerous job and nobody wants – or needs – to do it. We can all help reduce the needless violence and bloodshed in the world just by choosing vegan meals.

SLEEPER HIT Glen Iris resident JOEY THOMAS has turned a dream into a bed linen business

W

hen Joey Thomas looks at the world, she sees stripes, polka dots and lots of colour. She brings this vision to life with her original designs as the owner and founder of Duckprint, an online bed linen store. The Glen Iris resident began her journey when she was hunting for bed linen that was bold, beautiful and made of quality cotton.“So when I brought out my own range I made it my mission to bring both,’’ she says. Thomas says Duckprint’s first three years have been a bit “slower” than she expected but she is proud of where the business is. “I’ve learnt so much, particularly within the social media space, where we’ve managed to develop a large following,’’ she says. ‘‘The Click Frenzy online shopping event in the lead-up to Christmas was a milestone for

Duckprint. We had more than 7000 hits to our website within that 24-hour period, more than we’d ever get over several months.’’ Thomas would like to see the business expand into international markets one day, but for now her focus is on building the brand within Australia – which is not without its challenges. “Most people don’t realise that a queen size doona cover set has a different set of measurements within just about every country in the world – even New Zealand’s king size set differs from ours, for goodness sake!” Thomas is working on offering a larger range of designs and more double and king size options alongside the current queen size range. Ultimately she would like Duckprint to be a one-stop shop for high quality bed linen. “There’s so much misinformation out there where it

comes to thread count and buying quality sheets,’’ she says. “I want to be able to offer my customers a high quality no-nonsense solution.” MATTHEW EADE scene@mmpgroup.com.au.

LIVES: Glen Iris WHAT I LOVE ABOUT BOROONDARA: It’s only about 15 minutes to the city (on a good run) and it’s very central.

WHAT I’D CHANGE: I’d love it if we had a supermarket within walking distance of our house, or even a decent general store. There’s not much in the area.

I SUPPLIED

n my uni days, going to the gym was just part of student life. But those years are long past and I haven’t visited a real gym in years. Resolving to improve my upper body and core strength, I visit Sally Henley at the boutique personal-training centre she runs with husband Tristan. It’s larger than an independent trainer’s studio but not as overwhelming

as a fitness centre chain. Henley notes my weight, height, blood pressure and other measurements and asks about fitness goals and past injuries. She puts me through a cardio test, times me holding a plank position and counts the push-ups I can do in 30 seconds, all the while correcting my technique. She then takes me through a circuit involving a kettle bell, more push-ups, tricep dips and sit-ups of various sorts to tone muscles and build strength.

The verdict My fitness level is good and my upper body strength better than expected. The circuit Henley plans for me is simple and doesn’t involve fancy equipment, although the gym offers boxing classes, weights and some machines. More importantly, the Henleys offer personal attention, supervision and encouragement to work harder to achieve fitness goals.

uite a freaky town – that’s what The Caesar Twins think of Melbourne. Coming from the half-nude Polish pair who hand-balance off each other and execute dangerous acrobatic stunts involving an enormous water-filled fish bowl, that’s a compliment. Berlin-based Pablo and Pierre Caesar have been working at their Base Berlin creative hub fine tuning The Trip, which takes audiences on an excursion from Berlin to Melbourne. Along the way, The Trip meets people such as Ethiopian juggler Girma Tsehai, New York drag sensation Baby Jane, and David Pereira who performs a pulsating disco ball contortion act. ‘‘Melbourne is quite a freaky town, almost like Berlin – openminded and unusual, and there is a lot of art going on,’’ says peroxide blond Pierre, who has a tattoo of a puma on his well-toned left bicep to mirror the image on his brother’s right bicep. Pablo pipes up:‘‘Melbourne has a different style of people as well and, like Berlin, it’s more a very alive arts city than a business city.’’ The pair last performed in Melbourne in La Clique in 2007. The 32-year-old twins are the only children of a bookkeeper mother and businessman father. ‘‘If you don’t know what to do with two problems, you send them

They were inseparable until 2002 when Pablo plunged during their Wheel of Death act and lay unconscious in hospital for two weeks. ‘‘When I woke up, I knew I had to fight alone,’’ says Pablo. ‘‘I had to learn everything again.

But their greatest gift is that

of making people happy, and inspiring others. ‘‘The accident changed me a lot,’’ says Pablo, who in 2010 married Melbourne performer Martine Howard. Pablo and Martine Howard-Czizmowski have a daughter named Pearl-Rose who turns three soon.‘‘I can give people motivation to go on.

BEHIND THE COUNTER Owner Rebecca Stacey says she is “trapped in the wrong era”. After seven years at Lucy Loves Charlie in Auburn Road, she was itching to open a girly paradise. From the laminex table which doubles as the counter, to the chandelier and Doris Day posters, Canary Jane’s Flowers is a homage to all things kitsch and vintage.

The shop is a colourful explosion of a wide variety of blooms, favouring growers in Monbulk, Silvan and Macedon. “Some flowers are in transit overseas in cold storage for ages; it’s ridiculous,” Stacey says.“We have an amazing industry here.” Alongside the bunches, boxes and posies of flowers customers find

More bench More storage More style More features More finishes

WHO’S VISITING Customers range from corporate types seeking a quick purchase for an anniversary or thank you, to mums whose kids chat with yellow canaries Wild Bill and Doris. “Whether it’s a birthday, a new baby or maybe someone is sick in hospital, people share their experiences,” she says. “It’s lovely to be able to contribute to the occasion. It’s a pleasure to come to work each day.” JOANNE SIM

ith L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival less than two months away, hundreds of beautiful people last Tuesday filled one very beautiful building, Malvern Town Hall, at the annual festival castings. Just 60 hopefuls will have their hopes filled, but that won’t stop most from rocking up next year. Or Decent Exposure, for that matter. LMFF starts on March 18. Details: visit lmff.com.au. CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT For Emily Macfarlane, Sarah Czarnuch and Saphira Tuffery, photos of their first baby steps must hold extra significance. The town hall floor was rather slippery, but not for seasoned model and keen ice skater Olivia Orchowski. Does anyone know the collective noun for models? Is it a ‘‘pout’’? The best looking pair in the building, Sam and Max McKenzie. OK, I’ll fess up, they’re my sons and they got an icy pole each for being good while daddy was working. Look closely and I think you’ll see one or two strands of hair out of place on Sam Blanchard – in his beard, that is. He’s with Shirlene Allison and Blake O’Neill. Judges Geraldine Frater and Jenny Trontl. GOT AN EVENT? email us » de@mmpgroup.com.au

CHRIS HOPKINS

50 not out! Family club just keeps on batting BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au WHEN respected cricket writer Gideon Haigh delivered the Bradman Oration late last year, he spoke of the important role of local clubs in the lives of parks cricketers. Koonung Heights Cricket Club has been providing for local cricketers for so long it has just celebrated its 50th anniversary, a feat that makes club stalwart Peter Rosenthal extremely proud. ‘‘We’ve had premierships over the years but just being able to sustain a club and to grow has been one of our biggest successes,’’ he says. The club celebrated in style on the Australia Day long weekend with a celebration function at the MCG attended by more 200 past and present members, ‘‘As far as the off-field part of the club is concerned it will be hard to top that night, it was great seeing the history of the club in the one room,’’ Rosenthal says.

With more than 30 years of involvement and close to 350 games at the club, Rosenthal has seen Koonung go through plenty of changes. ‘‘In many ways sporting clubs are mirror images of society,’’ Rosenthal says. ‘‘Thirty years ago most of the players were over 30, and you didn’t have junior players in your senior teams like you see now. ‘‘We’ve seen the introduction of one-dayers, T20 . . . there has been plenty of change. ‘‘Most of the players now would be under 28, which is a great position to be in.’’ Like any club, Koonung Heights has had its challenges over the years, with the difficulties of geography the latest obstacle. ‘‘Because of our location we fall victim to private schools a bit. Kids play school sport on the weekends so it’s hard to build up a strong junior program,’’ Rosenthal says. ‘‘But what we have found is that a lot of those players will come back

to the club once they’ve finished school and they quite often bring their friends, so I guess that’s one advantage.’’ Rosenthal believes it’s the club’s inviting and family-friendly approach which has sustained it for 50 years, and says it becomes like a second home for all who play for Koonung. ‘‘There’s no hierarchy here, it doesn’t matter if you’re opening in the ones or batting at 11 in the fifths, everyone’s treated the same,’’ he says. ‘‘Very few people leave the club to play somewhere else. ‘‘Our players retire or move away for work or family, but most people stick around for a long time.’’ ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

MATCH REPORT

BRIEFS

Day of highs and lows for Magpies ARI HATZIS

BY EWEN McRAE CAMBERWELL again let a good start slip on a rollercoaster first day of the Premier Cricket clash with Geelong on Saturday. Three times the Magpies managed to gain the upper hand, only to finish with the match evenly balanced. Batting first on the lightning fast Camberwell sports ground, the home side couldn’t capitalise on two strong partnerships and were bowled out for 219, before wasting a good start with the ball as Geelong finished on 2/83. Camberwell openers Alex Stanley (28) and Marcus Berryman (23) got their side going with a 45-run stand before an ill-judged run cost Stanley his wicket. This triggered a collapse of 5/12 as Geelong’s Marc Carson (7-40) bowled with pace and aggression to tear through the Magpies’ line-up. It took the experienced Brendan Drew and young gun Tom Russ to steady the ship with a stand of 111. Drew (85) took the lead early, employing powerful drives and pulls to great effect, while Russ eased his way into the contest before scoring freely later. It was Russ’s maiden First XI halfcentury, but it came to an end at 51 when he was dragged out of his crease and stumped. Alex McDermott then fell for 11 but it took a stunning one-handed catch at first slip to deny Drew his first century for the Magpies. From

■ McLEAN TOP MAGPIE Michael McClean made 61 but with only three players reaching double figure, Camberwell Seconds were bowled out for 184 on day one of the Premier Cricket match away at Geelong. The Cats made 2/104 in reply. ■ BATTING DISASTER North Balwyn fell to an embarrassing defeat in the Dunstan Shield match against St Kevins OC on Saturday. Chasing a 112, North Balwyn were bowled out for 72, with five batsmen failing to score and only two reaching double figures. St Kevins finished on 7/175 in the second innings. ■ SKIPPER STARS Koonung Heights captain James Fenner fell short of his first ton of the year but his side dominated the Wilson Shield match with Nunawading Church of Christ on Saturday. Fenner made 90 of his side’s 239 as Koonung easily passed Nunawading’s 138. The home side finished at 4/142 in the second innings.

MORE RUNS: Camberwell’s Marcus Berryman watches the ball during his innings of 23 there the tail offered little resistance to Carson, and Camberwell had 14 overs to bowl before stumps. It started perfectly, with Drew sending Josh McDonald packing in his first over before teen speedster Will Walker got an edge off Michael Condy to reduce Geelong to 2/0. But the momentum slipped away

as James Crosthwaite (48 not out) and Hayden Butterworth (30 not out) took their side safely to the close. Camberwell coach Shannon Young was full of praise for Russ and Drew, reserving special praise for the youngster. “We identified him a couple of years ago as a real talent and it’s

good to see him starting to deliver on that,” he said. Young said the game would be decided in the first hour of play on day two on Saturday. “If we can take another two wickets and keep it tight we’ll be in the game, he said. ‘‘If we fail to execute like we did late in the day, the game will effectively be over.”

■ DEMONS DOWN AGAIN Melbourne’s women slumped to another defeat in the Victorian Summer league baseball league, this time at the hands of Bundoora. Melbourne couldn’t contain Bundoora’s hitters in a 15-5 loss. ■ TOO EASY North Balwyn’s division one open bowls side scored a resounding victory over Greythorn last week, winning every rink. With both on seven wins before the meeting, North Balwyn won 16-70 to 0-41.

Deep in trouble, then Kew finds a Short cut A DEVASTATING spell from Harry Short late in the day put Kew firmly in the box seat after they’d appeared to be in big trouble in the Sub District clash with Preston on Saturday. After winning the toss and batting at Victoria Park, Kew was all out for a disappointing 133. But that didn’t look nearly as bad after Short had ripped through Preston’s top order to reduce them to 5/40 by stumps. Short ended the day with the amazing figures of 4-3 from six fiery overs. Early in the day, Kew’s batsmen found it tough as Preston moved the

ball around in overcast conditions. Preston skipper Brendan Barry (4-34) was particularly damaging as he consistently trapped batsmen in front or went straight through them. The day started badly for the home side when Steven Baldwin and Daniel Gledhill (both four) went early, while Ben Cookson (8) fared little better as Kew slumped to 3/31. It didn’t get any easier as first Conor O’Beirne (13) and then Sam McTaggart (11) and skipper Francis Gill (4) were all undone by the swinging ball. Ben Waterman (17) and Michael Westland (30) put together a much-

needed partnership, but when Waterman was out Kew was 7/83 and in danger of not reaching 100. But Short (22) came to the fore with the bat late to help Kew into three figures. Preston’s reply moved to 23 without much fuss, before Short joined the attack and turned the game on its head. After he got the dangerous Stephen Nicholls (19) caught behind to start the rot, the visitors lost 5/17. Gill was happy with the way his team responded to the challenge. “After losing last week it was

pretty much do or die for us so we had to come out and have a red hot crack,” Gill said. “It’s still a fast ground so we’ll have to come out next week, bowl well and hope we have enough runs.” BALWYN felt the full force of ladder-leading Oakleigh’s batsmen on the weekend, chasing leather all afternoon as the home side piled on 9/272. In a must-win match for Balwyn, they struggled for wickets early as Oakleigh’s top three all got among the runs, skipper Jarrod Travaglia making 110.
