PHILIP MALLIS is just 20 years old but his mind is on the serious business of running the city of Boroondara. The Melbourne University arts student is one of five fresh faces sworn in to the council last week, joining five returning councillors. Boroondara’s Young Citizen of the Year in 2010, Cr Mallis sees his relative youth as an advantage in representing his constituency, one third of whom are aged under 25. ■ REPORT P12

e had a memorial service for my eldest son, Clive, on Saturday, October 27, in Camberwell. He died on October 5 of a massive heart attack while flying from Canada to Perth, where he lived. He was 61. I really can’t talk about him as it’s such a shock, especially as I had already lost my other son, John. He was 59 and living in Dimboola when he died of a brain tumour in September 2008. And my husband, Dick, died last February after a long illness. The boys were born in Malaya [now Malaysia], where we lived for nine years, then went to Scotch College — as did their father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Dick was an engineer and an Antarctic explorer, leading two expeditions down there in 1963 and ’64. His ashes were scattered there in June this year and a mountain ridge has been named after him. I once won an international speech contest for my talk Antarctic Wife: When the Cat’s Away about the things I’d buy when he wasn’t around. I love clothes and antiques. I grew up in England in the area known as The Potteries in North Staffordshire. During the war I was a personnel and welfare officer in a big ammunitions factory — I was on detonators. Then I lived in Malaya, working as an assistant to the chief police officer in Penang. In Malaya, I helped to pioneer family planning, which drew a lot of criticism, and volunteered in clinics. Dick and I married in 1949. We moved to Glen Iris in 1956. I started the Joan Saxton Lecture Agency in 1971, the first of its kind in Australia. Before then, no one thought of paying [for speakers] and it took a

NOVEMBER 7, 2012

few years before people were prepared to. I travelled the world for speaking engagements. The Joan Saxton lecture luncheon club is still going strong; we started off at 9 Darling Street in South Yarra, moved

to various other venues and are now based at the beautiful Gables in East Malvern. We have a guest speaker each month. I don’t give talks any more but I do present the following month’s program. I may be 92 but I

feel 65. I’ve had a fascinating life and met some fascinating people. I am writing my memoirs, which I hope to publish. But at the moment I’m in the grieving period as I’ve outlived my husband and both my children.

Join the march for women’s safety teresa.murphy@fairfaxmedia.com.au

BOROONDARA is to hold its own violence-against-women march on November 22. While organisers don’t expect – and certainly couldn’t cope with – the thousands seen at the recent Jill Meagher and Reclaim the Night marches in Brunswick, they hope at least 80 people will take part in the city’s first march for women’s safety. Weather permitting, the march

will follow an hour-long community forum on domestic violence involving women and children. Guest speaker will be Boroondara resident Jane Ashton, whose twin sister, Julie Ramage, was murdered in 2003 by her husband in the Balwyn home she had f led from six weeks beforehand. James Ramage was released from prison last year, after serving his minimum eight years. The November 22 march in Camberwell will proceed from the city

offices at 8 Inglesby Road to the Junction and return along Camberwell Road. Boroondara police will manage traffic during the 20-30 minute march, which will highlight national White Ribbon Day on November 25. The police, Boroondara council and the Boroondara Family Violence Network are organising the event, which aims to support and raise awareness of victims of domestic violence and abuse. Boroondara council’s community

development director Carolyn McClean encourages residents to attend the forum and join the march, if possible. ‘‘Violence against women doesn’t always come in the form of physical abuse; it can be sexual, emotional, financial or social,’’ she said. The White Ribbon Day community forum is at the Camberwell civic centre from 10.45am on November 22. To register your attendance, call 9835 7824 by November 15.

Alice’s Eureka moment BY JUSTIN GEANEY newsroom@fairfax.com.au

KEW’S Alice McNamara has her eyes set on the top of Eureka Tower – and not for the first time. Having won the Eureka Tower Climb in 2010 and 2011, McNamara is determined to make it three consecutive victories. McNamara, 26, recently won the Kuala Lumpur International Day Night Towerthon Challenge in May and the Westpac Stair Climb in Adelaide last month. It’s an impressive feat for an athlete whose speciality is rowing and who was a reserve rower for the 2012 London Olympics women’s team. She is preparing for the annual sprint event with a laid-back approach. “I take the dog and we do some stairs and run up hills around Kew Boulevard,” she says. “It’s my favour-

ite place to train.” Canine training partner Arthur proves to be quite the competitor, too, with McNamara admitting “he beats me up the stairs”. However, when it comes to the real run McNamara’s competitive nature is unmatched. “Well I haven’t been beaten,” she says with a laugh. Last year, McNamara completed the Eureka Tower Climb in nine minutes and 33 seconds, wiping almost a minute from her previous personal best time. This year, she is quietly confident she can better herself again and claim her third title as the fastest female to the top of the tower. The Eureka Tower Climb will be held on Sunday, November 18. With 88 levels and 1642 steps, it is Australia’s biggest vertical race. To sponsor McNamara, visit eurekaclimb.com.au.

FULL FLIGHT: Alice McNamara at Eureka Tower

BOROONDARA’S population is forecast to rise by 24,000 by 2031. The number of dwellings is predicted to rise from 65,774 to 78,188, with Hawthorn, Camberwell and Balwyn the housing hotspots. The average household will drop slightly from 2.6 people to 2.51. Private demographic profiler id.com.au has crunched 2011 Census statistics to predict the 14 per cent rise over the next 19 years (or 0.7 per cent a year) to 191,754 people. In Boroondara, the biggest age group will be the 20-24 year olds – 15,673 by 2031. But the biggest population rises will occur among those aged 60 to 74 years. The city’s population is forecast to hit 167,735 this year. On Census night last year it was 159,184. Boroondara council has loaded the latest forecasts on its website, boroondara.vic.gov.au. The figures are based on residential development assumptions determined by current building and planning applications, as well as a range of mooted sites for infill. TERESA MURPHY

VOX POP DO YOU BELIEVE AUSTRALIAN STUDENTS SHOULD LEARN A MAJOR ASIAN LANGUAGE? DANIELLE BEECHY, Fairfield Yes, they’re our closest neighbours. It’s a great idea for them to learn an Asian language as part of their studies.

PAUL BROADWAY, Carnegie I do see how it could be beneficial for people doing business with our Asian neighbours ... they should have the choice, though.

LAUREN ELLETT, Hawthorn No, it takes away from our Australian heritage a bit. I don’t think it’s necessary. I didn’t choose an Asian language as it would not benefit me.

Solway leads the way in Asian invitation abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

EMERGENCY! Indonesian schoolkids, due to visit Melbourne this month, need lodgings. Could Solway Primary School help? ‘‘I sent an SOS to our families, I had hands up to host the students, and they’re all very excited,’’ Solway principal Julie Wilkinson said. ‘‘All our families are on board with the idea that we have to change what we do when engaging with Asia.’’ Solway had that attitude well before the federal government’s Australia in the Asian Century white paper, which urges making Asian languages and culture a priority for all students from prep up. Boroondara’s state schools are ahead of the pack. RL has found eight primary and three secondary schools have one Asian language on the curriculum, while Kew High and Hawthorn Secondary teach two including Mandarin. Ashburton Primary has just snared a $20,000 state government grant to start teaching

Japanese next year. The state government has said all state school students from prep to year 10 will be learning a language by 2025 and plans to train an extra 210 teachers in the next three years. Solway has taught Japanese since the 1990s, and is considering starting after-school Mandarin classes next year and hopes to strike a sister-school relationship in Nanjing. On a study tour to China last month, Ms Wilkinson found there was much Australian schools could learn from China’s soaring literacy and numeracy rates. ‘‘The kids are so focused, it would blow your mind,’’ she said. ‘‘If they’re not, their parents are notified, called into the school and told what they need to do at home to help their child meet that standard ... The teachers expect students to prepare for their lesson the night before, and the parents have a responsibility to oversee that.’’ Solway’s Japanese teacher Ryoko Yamaoka said the kids’ biggest challenge was the hiragana characters.

Mining the generation gap BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

BEFORE Google, there was the Encyclopaedia Brittanica. Almost 70 years after cramming the EB for the State School Quiz on radio 3UZ, Camberwell South Primary’s class of 1944 can still recite chunks of it. Reunited at their beloved school last week the 27 classmates, all aged 79 or 80, hailed the value of wellearned knowledge. ‘‘For that period, the war years, we had an extraordinary amount of university graduates, about 14,’’ former civil engineer Allen Payne said. ‘‘We have four doctors, a dentist, a leading solicitor at Corrs. My friend David Roach became the principal of RMIT. I wonder if it was because after school we would stay back and study the Encyclopaedia Brittanica. Our grade got into the quiz grand final, but even if you weren’t in the team,

you would do it. Our team of four lifted the standard for everyone.’’ To chill, the kids pounded the suburb’s tennis courts, including 12 in Martin Road and 20 by Gardiners Creek. ‘‘On Sundays you either went to church or played tennis.’’ Mr Payne had a quick walk to school – he lived opposite in a house built by his father, Alfred Payne. His uncle Bill built the school’s craft room and dug the wartime air-raid trenches. Though much of the school’s playground has been lost to buildings and car parks, the Camberwell South solidarity endures, with new principal Coralee Pratt hosting high tea and a meet and greet for the classes of ’44 and ’12. The latter greatly impressed the former. ‘‘We feel very happy about the standard of the young ones these days,’’ Mr Payne said. ‘‘They seem very mature.’’

Community house gets a new manager THE troubled Hawthorn Community House has a new manager. Inner East Community Health, which has clinics in Hawthorn, Ashburton and Richmond, has stepped into the breach created when the house closed suddenly late last year. IECH chief executive Harry Majewski did not respond to RL’s calls last week. However, RL understands the well-regarded organisation,

which offers low-cost medical care and drug and alcohol addiction programs, plans to re-open the Henry Street centre early next year. The centre closed amid claims of bullying and harassment of staff during the previous two years, with childcare co-ordinator Rose Roberts saying she resigned in 2010 after being subjected to “rude, demeaning and critical behaviour”.

Boroondara council restored the occasional care service in January and has since managed it on an interim basis while seeking a permanent provider. At the centre’s AGM in February, former chairman Barry Durham said the centre had a deficit of $121,384 at the end of the 2010–11 financial year. ALISON BARCLAY

Dog owners’ snake warning AS WARM weather stirs the snake population, University of Melbourne vets are reminding owners to protect their pets in parks and at home. University vet Mark Davis said emergency services had recently treated several dogs who needed anti-venom and critical care after being bitten. “Snakes are now emerging from hibernation, becoming active in

the afternoon and early evening which is when they may come into contact with pets,” Dr Davis said. .” Dr Davis said owners needed to recognise symptoms such as collapse, seizures, difficulty breathing or walking and vomiting, depending on the snake species. Brown snakes are frequently seen in Melbourne’s east. If bitten, pets need to be kept still and taken straight to a vet.

ANDY ZAKELI

Overhauled empty nest for sale BY TERESA MURPHY teresa.murphy@fairfaxmedia.com.au

THE magnificent Coppin Grove property Yarroma in Hawthorn is back on the market for $8 millionplus after a year-long renovation. Owner Peter O’Brien has been trying to sell the property for two years but was advised it needed modernising and its land size halved. Yarroma is now on 2800 square metres of land, while the adjoining 3200 square metre subdivision — with coach house and tennis court — is for sale separately. Mr O’Brien wants to build three four-storey townhouses on this larger block, but Boroondara council and Melbourne Water, among others, oppose the development. The matter was five days into a seven-day Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal hearing when it was adjourned on October 15 in light of new mandatory height limits gazetted for the Yarra River by Planning Minister Matthew Guy. The

JEWEL IN THE CROWN: Yarroma new planning laws took effect immediately in Boroondara. Mr O’Brien said new architects were revising his townhouse plans

to meet the new requirements. The VCAT hearing will resume in March. Heritage-protected Yarroma, which overlooks the Yarra River and

beyond to the city, is considered a jewel in the crown of the St James Park Estate. It has six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a large glass conservatory with heated in-ground pool, expansive Italianate gardens and widow’s walk, now a rooftop deck. Mr O’Brien, who has lived in the 1872-built Yarroma for 25 years, says he and his wife are empty nesters and want to downsize. While renovating Yarroma, they have lived in the coach house and will stay there until it is sold. They will move to a smaller home with a lift, in South Yarra, largely for health reasons. Mr O’Brien is an aquarium developer and tourism consultant, who was involved with the Sydney Olympic Games, development of the Melbourne exhibition and convention centres and acquisition of the Federation Square site for the state government. He was director of Tourism Australia from 2007-10.

Pilferer has eyes on your garden teresa.murphy@fairfaxmedia.com.au

SOMETIMES, good does follow bad. Hawthorn East couple John Tanas and Izabela Dobrostanski were shocked recently when 16 newly planted lilies were stolen from their cottage front garden. As reported in RL (‘‘Lily livid over theft’’, October 17), the plants were pilfered overnight while the couple were home, probably asleep in their front bedroom. They had bought the plants from their local Bunnings store, which – after reading the article – offered to replace the lilies for free. Mr Tanas collected them from Bunnings manager Gaylene Taylor last week. ‘‘We’re in shock again – this time by Bunnings’ generosity,’’ Mr Tanas said. ‘‘They went out and sourced the exact colour and type of lily stolen from us.’’ Mr Tanas has planted the lilies in the backyard and put a lock on the gate.

ARI HATZIS

BY TERESA MURPHY

BRIEFS

Another Boroondara resident contacted RL after reading about the lily theft, suspecting her dog was poisoned by a plant thief she caught redhanded. Preferring to stay anonymous, the Balwyn woman said she confronted a man trying to dig up a plant in her front garden about the same time as the lily theft. ‘‘It was very bizarre,’’ she said. ‘‘He ran away when I came out of the gate and my dog ran at him. I reported it to Boorandara police the following day as I suspected my dog had been poisoned that night with baited meat left on our front lawn. An emergency vet saved the dog. ‘‘I mentioned my experience to other mums at our local primary school ... a few had heard of similar circumstances recently in our area,’’ she said. ‘‘People need to be aware and report it to the police.’’

Chase nabs father, son

Tyre slasher was kicked off tram teresa.murphy@fairfaxmedia.com.au

A MAN who slashed the tyres of 23 vehicles in Kew in July was upset at being kicked off a tram in Glenferrie Road, police say. CCTV cameras in Glenferrie Road played a vital role in identifying Ben Rice, 26, of no fixed address, who pleaded guilty to 23 counts of criminal damage in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on October 11. The slashings — causing about $30,000 damage — occurred between midnight and 3am on July 25, on Glenferrie Road between Barkers Road and Wellington Street. Commercial CCTV footage of the man randomly and casually slashing tyres of parked vehicles was widely broadcast in the media as police sought public help to identify him. But it was police themselves who recognised the man from previous dealings with him, Boroondara’s Detective Senior Sergeant Daryl Cullen said.

‘‘It highlights just how valuable CCTV is in leading us to suspect offenders,’’ he said. ‘‘We welcome Boroondara council’s move to finally install cameras in Glenferrie Road next year, which local police will monitor.’’ The man was arrested at Box Hill railway station by the Boroondara tasking unit on October 10 after an intensive investigation. He had been questioned by Protective Services Officers at the station, who alerted local police. During his police interview, he said he was drunk, had wanted to get into the city and was angry at being kicked off a tram earlier in the night. On October 12 Rice was sentenced and placed on an intensive correction order for 12 months. Boroondara police have written to all victims about the outcome.

A father and son have been charged over a spate of pharmacy burglaries across Melbourne, including nine in Boroondara. Detective Senior Sergeant Daryl Cullen said an operation was mounted in Boroondara, with police working around the clock. The two suspects were caught after a high-speed police chase through Boroondara to Coburg on October 8. A man, 50, and his son, 19, both from the northern suburbs, were charged over 22 pharmacy burglaries in the eastern suburbs and a number in the north-western suburbs over a month. Police allege cold tablets such as Sudafed were stolen for their pseudoephedrine, which can be made into the illegal drugs speed and ‘‘ice’’. The father and son have been bailed to appear in Melbourne Magistrates Court at a later date.

A SPORTS club’s bid to sell and serve alcohol in a Kew East park will be given a public hearing next Monday (November 12) after residents complained their concerns had been ignored. The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation is making an internal review of the Deepdene Uniting Cricket Club’s application to sell alcohol during and after its matches in Hays Paddock. The commission received nine objections when the application was advertised in July, but RL understands more objectors have come forward. Resident Prue Atkins said families feared large crowds and unruly behaviour, especially as the sports

Liquor poll for Deepdene cafe IT’S voting time again for some Boroondara residents, this time in the dry zone. Deepdene residents must vote yes or no on whether a liquor licence should be granted to Snow Pony cafe at 95 Whitehorse Road. Ballot papers have been sent to all nearby residents. Voting in liquor licence polls is compulsory for everyone enrolled for state elections and who lives near venues seeking a licence in Boroondara’s dry zone. Failure to vote could incur a $70 fine. The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation determines the neighbourhood boundaries for each poll, while the Victorian Electoral Commission conducts the polls on behalf of the regulatory body. Completed ballot papers must be sent to the VEC by 5pm on Monday, November 26. Deepdene, formerly part of Balwyn, was recognised as a bounded locality in 2010.

pavilion – which Boroondara council recently rebuilt to double its size – was only four metres from the park’s playground. ‘‘The commission has put a stay on its decision to grant the club a licence, which I think is fantastic,’’ Ms Atkins said. ‘‘The residents and general park users will finally have a voice in the matter.’’ The cricket club has so far declined to comment to RL. New Boroondara councillor Jim Parke, whose Bellevue ward takes in part of Hays Paddock, said the use of public open space should be decided ‘‘with a degree of balance’’. ‘‘I understand the concerns by some,’’ he said. ‘‘The consumption of alcohol in compliance with licensing conditions should not be an issue, but I would take a ver y dark view if we saw any adverse impacts.’’

When mediation works for everyone Rarely do residents and developers see eye to eye, especially in leafy Boroondara. But in a rare act of compromise, mediation has worked in Camberwell. TERESA MURPHY reports GEORGE POULAKIS

I

T was May this year and letters started arriving in the mailboxes in Camberwell’s Tyrone Street and surrounding roads. Residents were being notified of a big development planned for the Nissan car dealership on the triangular corner of Camberwell Road. Proposed were almost 53 apartments over four storeys and an entrance to the basement car park that jutted out and up on to Tyrone Street. The building’s design was modern, stark and boxy with a mirror finish and metal cladding more suited to an industrial or commercial precinct than a largely residential area of inter-war homes — mainly California bungalows and many with lush gardens. Residents were aghast; 63 objections were lodged with the Boroondara council, which refused a planning permit. The developer — Carlton-based Blue Earth Group appealed to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. One group of residents realised they had to be united and savvy, particularly in a planning climate that urges higher-density living along major public transport routes — such as Camberwell Road. ‘‘It was the character of the building that really shocked us,’’ says Tyrone Street resident and medical specialist Dr Bruce Hocking, who galvanised fellow residents to form the 565 Camberwell Road action group. ‘‘We all agreed that higherdensity living was necessary, that wasn’t really the issue,’’ he says. ‘‘The question was how best to put it together. How could we convince the developer to build something that suited this area rather than blight it?’’ Dr Hocking knew a local town planner would be crucial to their cause. He searched for ‘‘town planner, Camberwell’’ on the internet and ‘‘hit the jackpot’’. ‘‘Instrumental to our success was town planner Michael Dunn, of Metropol Planning,’’ he says. ‘‘It wasn’t enough to state what was wrong with a proposed development, but to proffer what could be right for that site. ‘‘Michael knows the area, knows Boroondara council, the planning process. And he writes it all in town planning jargon, which focuses a lot on context. Michael gave it a lot of thought and, in some ways, did all the hard yards for the developer’s architect by providing an alternative 10 BOROONDARA REVIEW LOCAL

development that was accepted by everyone.’’ Dr Hocking said it was crucial his group — comprising about 30 residents with six committee members — was prepared to compromise. Three half-days of mediation began in VCAT on September 10. On October 2, they all signed off on a redesign by the original architects, Map Architecture: 46 apartments

over three storeys, greater setbacks and, most importantly, a softer, more attractive facade with natural materials, including timber cladding. There was no celebrating that day - ‘‘we were all keen to get back to our day jobs’’ — but residents last weekend gathered together and toasted their success with a dinner at one of their homes, with their

lawyer - and of course, Mr Dunn. ‘‘I fully commend the mediation process,’’ Dr Hocking says. ‘‘Once you go to VCAT, you’re in for tens of thousands. We came in by about half of what we would have spent at a full hearing, where you’re not in a position to bargain in any way. Mediation is a much more civilised of way to dealing with each other,’’ he says. ‘‘I wish it were mandatory.’’

Planning a happy outcome TOWN planner Michael Dunn usually works for developers, not residents. But he was impressed by the residents’ action group 565 Camberwell Road, whose 30 members were ‘‘open to compromise, very balanced and recognised the advantage of mediation’’. ‘‘Mediation is highly encouraged by VCAT,’’ he says. ‘‘But only if there is a very real prospect of an agreed outcome. If parties are completely at odds, then there’s no point.’’ Mr Dunn owns Metropol Planning Solutions in Riversdale Road. ‘‘The Camberwell residents group employed me very early on, which was crucial, and they were keen to learn all about the planning process,’’ he says. ‘‘It was a very interesting experience.’’ Mr Dunn was chuffed to be invited to a celebratory dinner at the home of one of the residents in Tyrone Street. ‘‘Usually, with developers, they take you out to dinner. The dinner at home was A nice touch to a great community outcome.’’ John Luppino, Boroondara council’s director of city planning, said the outcome was an example of common sense and respect. ‘‘It is heartening to see such great community participation in matters that affect them and a willingness from developers to listen,’’ he said. Michael Dib, managing director of Blue Earth, says it was always his company’s intention to work with the council and residents to address their concerns. ‘‘It’s senseless to bulldoze your way through.’’ Blue Earth recently built the Mayada apartments in Toorak Road, Camberwell, and plan to build more apartments at 590 Camberwell Road next year.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ RETHINK RUBBISH Council has decided to change hard rubbish collection without consultation with ratepayers (‘‘Hardrubbish collection trials pick-up on demand’’, RL, October 10). So click go their mind gears, click, click click. But they are still in the same mindset about recycling. How about changing these mind gears about hard waste from worrying about ‘‘scavenging’’ to thinking about recycling or reclaiming. If anything can be collected from hard waste, surely this is a good thing? For a short time, yearly collectors of usable items have a chance to recycle these items. The residue is collected, tragically for the environment, and it is all crushed into a truck, making a mashed mess of everything. Where are the possibilities for recycling when this mess arrives at its landfill destination? Maybe the mind gears need to click into thinking about the bigger issue of recycling? Please Boroondara council, take

the collection back to a yearly one. Val Mae / Hawthorn

■ TAX EQUALITY I applaud the federal government’s actions to preserve the surplus by curtailing some items of middle class welfare. It is disappointing, however, that it has also taken the socially irresponsible decision to cut funding for medical and scientific research. Australia has a long and proud record in this area, including a number of Nobel Prize winners. I suggest that a far greater potential source of budget savings is the religion industry: billions of dollars could be saved by removing ‘‘advancing religion’’ from the list of ‘‘charitable purposes’’ that attract tax concessions, deductions and exemptions, as well as direct and indirect grants and subsidies. Religion is a personal and private matter: its practice and/or promotion should not be funded by taxpayers. Assorted sects and cults, such as the Exclusive Brethren and Scientology, have the status of

religions in Australian tax law, and enjoy these benefits at our expense. Even commercial businesses owned and operated by religious bodies do not pay income tax on their profits. Most people are unaware, for instance, that the Sanitarium Health Food Company pays no income tax, because it is owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. ‘‘Advancing religion’’ is not comparable to ‘‘advancing education’’ or any of the other socially desirable charitable purposes (like caring for the poor, sick, aged, disabled, disadvantaged, homeless, orphaned and marginalised) given special tax treatment. Its inclusion is a seriously outdated anachronism, dating back to Queen Elizabeth I. It should be removed from the Income Tax Assessment Act. Australia’s tax system needs to relocate permanently into the 21st century. Rosemary Sceats / via email

s the first blind councillor for Boroondara, Steve Hurd knows something of what America’s first black president must have felt. Last Monday, when Hurd was sworn in as a councillor of the City of Boroondara, threatened to be a very emotional occasion. ‘‘To be honest, I almost started crying. It has been such a long journey to get here,’’ the Hawthorn East lawyer and new councillor for Glenferrie told RL. ‘‘One of the councillors said it was an Obama moment. It was very solemn. I take very seriously

this honour, and I hope I serve the people of Boroondara effectively and leave the place better than when I came in.’’ Though Councillor Hurd’s hero is the blind British MP David Blunkett, he’d love President Obama to come check out the latest Boroondara round table, spangled as it is with refreshing variety. Five new councillors and five returning. Three women where once was just one. A 20-year-old newbie, Philip Mallis, and a 20-year veteran of heritage battles, Jane Addis. A past mayor, Judith Voce, whose vigorous community work made residents push for a comeback, and lawyer Jim Parke, who spent two terms on Toowoomba council before moving to Melbourne in 2005. Joining them in the Beaux-Arts splendour of Camberwell Town Hall are Heinz Kreutz, Coral Ross, Phillip Healey, Jack Wegman and Kevin Chow, eager for more. Having clinched Maranoa on the Sunday, Philip Mallis was too excited to sleep and was driven by his mum to Monday’s ceremony after a full-day crash course in council life. ‘‘There was a lot of information to take in – all the policies and processes and by-laws, who is who,

what law is relevant to what, all the different advisory committees, who to go to for information,’’ he says. ‘‘There are so many people to meet, it is difficult to keep track of them.’’ The Boroondara Young Citizen of the Year 2010 hopes to serve on council’s planning committee, a role informed by his past as the editor, aged eight, of his own Balwyn newsletter. ‘‘I started to write my own stories – a pole that had been knocked over, things happening at school,’’ he says.‘‘I don’t know why I started it. I now know it is really important for representatives to be familiar with the place they are representing.’’ Despite his rosy youth, he does not feel alone.‘‘There’s now an 18-year-old on Kingston council and a 25-year-old in Ballarat. In Boroondara 33 per cent of the population is under 25, so we need people representing their interests on council.They might not vote, but they are affected by the decisions we make.’’ One has already stuck his hand up.‘‘A boy of 11 contacted me, very keen to talk to me about a skate park,’’ Jim Parke says.‘‘It’s good to see them taking an interest at an early age.’’

What decisions might this new council make between now and 2016? RL asked the newcomers to ponder pressure points. Inappropriate development: ‘‘What is inappropriate development?’’ asks Cr Parke, new rep for Bellevue ward and director of Parke Lawyers, which he founded in Queensland in 1994.‘‘I support appropriate development. Council can’t simply say no to everything. Perhaps the failure by councils to manage or to adequately assess development applications has led to the situation where many applications are ultimately decided by VCAT.’’ Cr Hurd successfully petitioned against a proposed 11-storey building in Glenferrie ward, but is nervous about the ever-rising Swinburne University, whose federal status makes it exempt from local and state planning laws. ‘‘I think it is outrageous. It is great to have a university here ... but it has become exclusionary to the community,’’ says Cr Hurd, who wants the uni to at least meet the council half way. How, being blind since infancy, will he be able to assess contentious development sites? ‘‘I do have people who assist. Council staff always attend sites with the councillors,’’ he says. ‘‘Being a lawyer and having worked on complex cases, I know what questions to ask ... and I have people I can rely on to give me accurate descriptions.’’ Canterbury psychologist Jane Addis is credited with saving Maling Road’s Victorian beauty from the wreckers 20 years ago. ‘‘It is really encouraging that the community is now much more focused on protecting the area in which we live,’’ she says. ‘‘I’ve had a lot to do with the council and know a lot of the employees.They do work hard to do the best thing, but that isn’t always achieved and VCAT will often overturn it.That has been interesting and frustrating for a lot of us. My aim is to balance the need for change and development and the need to protect our area.’’ As mayor in 2004, Judith Voce battled the state government over the redevelopment of the Kew Cottages site.This time, she’ll have to deal with the expansion in a Kew residential street of the Lyon Housemuseum. Transport: Cr Mallis wants better inter-suburban transport and extension of tram lines.‘‘Not all trips are into and out of the city,’’ he says. Cr Hurd, who worked for Boroondara council before his current job as the compliance


LOCAL FEATURE TIMOTHY BURGESS

manager for Guide Dogs Victoria, suggests re-opening the Outer Circle Railway as a tram route between Camberwell and Carlton. ‘‘I think successive governments of whatever persuasion have been blinder than I am about public transport,’’ he says. Financial management: Cr Voce brings to her new term years as a Municipal Association of Victoria governance panellist and a board member of Camcare, the Villa Alba and Boroondara Cemetery trusts.‘‘I felt Cotham needed someone with the experience and knowledge required in the serious business of representing people,’’ she says.‘‘Managing a huge, multimillion-dollar budget and services and facilities is not a game.’’ When in Toowoomba, Cr Parke sat on that council’s works, audit and economic development committees.‘‘We attracted economic development to the region by providing very good infrastructure,’’ the Balwyn North resident says.‘‘We kept rates affordable. I won’t claim that [achievement] as purely mine, because you are nothing as an individual. All you can do is seek to influence and lead your colleagues. ‘‘Boroondara council is in a pretty strong financial position. I don’t envisage rates dropping, but certainly we have to be very mindful that some people are doing it tough ... I will be seeking to limit rates to an appropriate level.’’ Cr Parke has thrown down the gauntlet to fellow councillors.‘‘I am very outcome-focused,’’ he declares. ‘‘We can have lots of talkfests, but they don’t amount to anything if there are no outcomes.’’

A VOTE by all 10 councillors on November 12 will determine who becomes the next mayor. It’s a nice gig.The mayor is the official spokesperson for council, notably in discussions with other levels of government and their authorities.There’s an annual allowance of $85,741 plus a car, though incumbent mayor Heinz Kreutz likes to ride his bicycle to the chambers. Would he like a second term? ‘‘I won’t pretend and say that I am not interested,’’ the Monash University senior lecturer said. ‘‘Last year was such a positive experience with some major achievements ... I would also need to talk to my employer and see if they would allow me to consider another stint as mayor.They have been very supportive in the past.’’ Newcomers Cr Parke and Cr Hurd have ruled themselves out, as has returning Solway councillor Dr Kevin Chow, who is taking leave this month to get married. Twice former mayor Jack Wegman, of Junction, said he would get to know the new councillors before deciding.‘‘Certainly I’d be privileged to be mayor again and would happily do so, but it is premature to make any definitive comment,’’ he said. Studley’s Cr Phillip Healey, who was mayor in 2006-07, said he would love to serve again.‘‘I know the role of the mayor, it’s not to run the organisation, it is to be the voice of all 10 councillors, work with the CEO as required and represent the issues important to our community on a policy basis,’’ said Cr Healey.‘‘I was able to do that last time; I would love to do it with this group as there is so much goodwill around the table.’’ Cr Healey said his priorities would include creating a productive relationship with the Baillieu government and making Planning Minister Matthew Guy sign off Boroondara’s urban character study ‘‘to make it law and then it will protect our neighbourhoods from inappropriate development’’.

SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

ntil 1863, Darling Street, South Yarra, was known as Prahran Street. The reception centre at number 9, now being redeveloped as luxury apartments, began life in the early 1920s when a decorator named Frank Walker bought three adjoining wooden cottages, converting them into a ‘‘building that could be used to entertain 200 guests, or an intimate little party of 30 or 40’’. It was an immediate success. Walker had earned a reputation for transforming venues for important occasions with bowls of leaves and flowers, which he brought down by train from his Heathmont property. Walker sold the business to caterer Peter Lynch in 1951; Lynch to Desmond Kimball in 1973; and Kimball to Sam and Nassim Seoud in 1981.

LOCAL PROFILE LUCY DI PAOLO

CURIOUS GEORGE Kew restaurant veteran GEORGE SYKIOTIS is a self-made man at the top of his game or a successful businessman with interests in no less than 10 high-profile Melbourne restaurants, George Sykiotis is looking very relaxed.The reason? A recent European holiday with his partner Lucy, followed by five days in Queensland with his children – Ruby, 7, and Ross, 5. It’s unusual timing for a man who opened his latest restaurant last month. But this is just one indication of how much he trusts his team. For Sykiotis, the secret to his success is people. Sykiotis is one of four directors of the Made Establishment, which runs eateries such as the Press Club, Maha and Mama Baba. Sykiotis’ also has other projects outside of Made, including Lupino, the Smith, the Burch and Purchese Sweet Studio, and his latest baby – Orto Kitchen and Garden in Hawthorn.

F

Well known in the industry for his business nous, to the general public Sykiotis is the “other Greek George”, and that’s how he likes it. He is the numbers guy and prefers to let his chefs take the limelight. “They usually call me the fireman because I put all the fires out!” he laughs over a tea at Axil Coffee Roasters.“I consider myself a producer and director. I get the chance to create these amazing food concepts and ideas and I get to work with the great stars like George [Calombaris], Shane [Delia] and Luigi [Buono].” Buono is head chef at the Italianinspired Orto, a revamp of the Made group’s Chester White which closed its doors after less than 18 months at the site. “It was the wrong place at the wrong time and unfortunately it just didn’t work,” Sykiotis says. Failure is not something he is familiar with

– not since he almost got kicked out of Melbourne University in his second year. Hauled in before the disciplinary review board, Sykiotis changed his studies to part-time and in his spare time followed in his parents’ footsteps and opened an inner-city café. Sykiotis finished his commerce degree and worked in the corporate world for a year but hated it. He started managing his own restaurants when he was 25.“I had an amazing background and great ethic because I had been working with my parents since I was 12,” he says. To this day, Sykiotis names his mum as one of his greatest mentors. When he’s not working or eating out, Sykiotis loves to ride his bike, play with his kids and practice yoga. “You need a chance to sit down and focus,’’ he says. JOANNE SIM

Bondemae (the tray ceremony) is the first tea-making procedure (temae) people learn in sado practice. Students form small groups or go one-on-one, depending how many students attend the two-and-a-half hour Saturday class ($20). Beginners sit at a small table while learning the basics – the intricate folding of the fukusa (purifying cloth), the placement of the fingers on the chashaku (bamboo scoop), the swirling of the water to cleanse the chawan (tea bowl) and the scooping of the tea from the natsume (caddy). Strangely enough, I am told I have very good Japanese pronunciation and with my attention to detail, I am a natural.

W

est Gippsland artist Kerrie Warren doesn’t just live in the moment. She paints in it.‘‘Working in the moment

fascinates me... It requires that one drops the impulse to plan, to organise and to judge, thereby allowing the unconscious to communicate.’’ You can see the results of this approach in her exhibition Salt Water Series, at the Hawthorn Studio from November 10 to December 1. It’s the first time the 44-yearold has exhibited her abstract expressionist works together and she couldn’t be happier, mostly because she hasn’t had a chance to see the series properly herself. ‘‘One of the pieces is 2.4 metres

high and 4.2 metres long so I haven’t been able to hang it in my own home.’’ Speaking from her studio, about 10 minutes from Warragul, in Gippsland,Warren says that as a child, she gravitated naturally towards poetry, drawing and pastel painting, spurred on by encouraging and creative parents. At 25, she sold her car and studied ceramics, later discovering transpersonal art therapy, a form of counselling that uses art to tune into a patient’s creative side. She says this is what drew her to the more spiritual elements of abstract expressionism.

‘‘It sounds easy, but as a more traditional artist I had to retreat back into myself and then proceed outward again on a completely different path ... it required a challenging journey within, into the core of who I am.’’ Creating a splatter painting like those in the Salt Water Series is a physically demanding process. Artists create a work by tuning into their own inner rhythm, their ‘‘flow’’, to create a work unburdened by conscious thought, often walking around the canvas while throwing paint in a sort of dance. It’s fascinating to watch.

‘‘If I don’t feel emotionally connected, I know that I’ve ‘lost the painting’ or it is still a work in progress,’’ says Warren. The Salt Water Series is inspired by Warren’s childhood experiences of the sea contrasted with the modern urge to ‘‘own, harness and control the life it supports’’. ‘‘The work is very powerful. It could not be finished or expressed in one piece and thus became a series that is still a work in progress.’’ MICHAEL RYAN mryan@mmpgroup.com.au

REMEMBERED

DR ALLEN PENG YUNG OAM 26.07.1935 – 8.10.2012 INFECTIOUS diseases physician Dr Allen Peng Yung OAM, who lived in Kew, passed away on October 8, at home. Dearly loved husband of Gillian, Dr Yung had three children, Michael, Alison and Simon, and was the proud grandfather of Ronan, Conor, Kieran, Declan and Eden. Described by his colleagues at the Victorian Infectious Diseases Service as “compassionate, wise and humble”, Dr Yung inspired generations of medical students,

junior doctors and infectious diseases trainees with his peerless clinical skills, his memorable teaching and his commitment to his patients. Born in China, Dr Yung migrated to Australia in 1952, studying in Hobart and later attending Melbourne University. He was a member of the medical staff of Fairfield Infectious Diseases Hospital from 1964 to 1996, and was the hospital’s chief of medicine from 1992 to 1996. When the hospital closed in 1996, he was appointed as a sessional physician at VIDS until he retired in 2003. Nominated for 1997 Victorian of the Year, Dr Yung said he had done nothing special to deserve the nomination.‘‘I am simply an ordinary physician who was fortunate enough to work in a delightful place. I was very, very fortunate to be able to work at Fairfield... it was my life.’’ Dr Yung was awarded an OAM the following year for his service to medicine, particularly in the field of infectious diseases.

The Mont Albert couple says they chose the venue for the ceremony and reception because the function coordinator was helpful, accepting, supportive and kind from the moment they contacted her. “We also loved the setting it provided for photos [on golf buggies around the golf course] and the room set-up and view out the window was really nice,” Cull says. The pair was also particularly impressed with Riversdale Flowers in Camberwell, who told them: “We don’t do this to make money; we do this to make friends”.

CHRIS HOPKINS

Kristian hopes the AFL draft blows his way BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au ONLY one thing could top off one of the busiest years of Kristian Jaksch’s life and that may come on November 22. That’s when the Hawthorn 18-year-old hopes to hear his name called out at the AFL national draft to begin what he hopes will be a long and fulfilling career. ‘‘I feel like I’ve had a season to deserve an opportunity and that’s basically all I’m hoping for,’’ Jaksch said. ‘‘A lot of guys would give up their daily life to get an opportunity at AFL level, and I feel that with the work I’ve done this year and my ability as a footballer, I’ll give myself every opportunity come November 22.’’ Jaksch, a 195-centimetre key position player from the Oakleigh Chargers, has certainly done all in his power to make sure the AFL recruiters notice him.

He was a member of the Vic Metro under-18 team that won the national championships and made the state team. The Carey Grammar student was also named in the TAC Cup team of the year to add to his premiership with the Chargers. ‘‘I had some things I wanted to achieve during the year and I feel I’ve done that,’’ he said. ‘‘I’ve had a pretty successful year, when you look back.’’ Jaksch was invited to the AFL draft combine, which brought together the most talented juniors from around the country for a series of physical tests and interviews in front of watchful club recruiters and coaches. The week was a mixed bag for Jaksch. ‘‘I did my left hamstring in the 20-metre sprint, so I couldn’t do all the physical testing I would’ve liked,’’ he said. ‘‘But I felt like I interviewed pretty well, and that’s probably my strong point.

‘‘I really enjoyed the week, although meeting the coaches was pretty intimidating. ‘‘You see them all on television ... when they’re in your face asking you questions, you understand the enormity of what you’ve got yourself into.’’ Jaksch, a Richmond fan, would love to be donning the yellow and black next year but knows he has to be prepared to move to follow his dream. ‘‘It would be nice to stay in Victoria where you can be close to your family and friends, but I think every kid that goes into the AFL draft knows that’s not necessarily going to happen,’’ he said. ‘‘I’m fully prepared for whatever might happen.’’ ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

STEVE LIGHTFOOT

Demons go down in a tight one MELBOURNE’S rollercoaster baseball season continued with a tight loss to Blackburn in the second game of a double header. After knocking off the strong Orioles side 2-0 in the Sunday match, another tight match on Tuesday ended with a walk-off 2-1 victory to Blackburn at Billabong Park, Vermont South. With regular starting pitcher Andy Mann out, Campbell Wiggins stepped up to the plate for the Demons and conceded an early run to the home side. Melbourne replied in the second inning, when former Blackburn player Sean Pascoe hit a home run off former Australian pitcher Adam Bright. From then on it was all about the pitchers, with first Wiggins and then Alex Hondromatidis making life difficult for the home side, while Bright pitched 4.1 strong innings before handing over to the equally impressive Adrian Berka.

Scores remained level until the final inning, when Blackburn broke the deadlock in fading light. With the bases loaded, a fly ball from David Dicker allowed Leigh Bertrand to make it home. Melbourne coach Matt Kent commended the pitchers on both sides. ‘‘A draw would probably have been the right outcome,’’ he said. ‘‘It was even throughout with opportunities for both teams but that’s the breaks.’’ At this early stage of the season, Kent believes his team is well placed to again feature in summer league finals. ‘‘I think we’re doing okay considering we’ve faced some very strong teams in Essendon and Geelong early,’’ he said. ‘‘Our team’s there. We’ve got to maintain it for nine innings and get that consistency going and we’ll be right.’’ EWEN McRAE

AND AWAY IT GOES: Melbourne’s Sean Pascoe belts a home run against his former team but the Demons went down 2-1 to Blackburn

Hawks miss points again in frustrating draw HAWTHORN-MONASH University Cricket Club is still without a Premier Cricket point despite managing a draw against with Northcote at the weekend. After skipper David Alleyne’s fantastic 136 last week, HawthornMonash resumed on 5/296 before declaring on 9/348 and giving itself 75 overs to bowl out Northcote. Simon Black got the first breakthrough when he bowled Grant Waldron for three, and when Northcote slumped to 4/61, HawthornMonash could sniff its maiden victory of the season. But then Aidan March joined opener Ben Peake for a match-saving partnership and the Hawks had to chase leather for the rest of the afternoon. Peake made 61, while March was out late in the day for a classy 70 as Northcote finished on 6/215 by the close. The draw leaves the Hawks second last on the table, ahead of Essendon on percentage. They meet Melbourne University this weekend.

Bowling woes let down Balwyn ARI HATZIS

BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au AN unbalanced line-up ultimately cost Balwyn as it fell to a second Sub-District cricket loss of the season on Saturday. Going into the match at Balwyn Park without regular bowler Alex Young, the home side struggled to take wickets regularly as Endeavour Hills won by three wickets. Defending 193, the depleted bowling stocks soon became apparent as the visitors strung together solid partnerships throughout the innings. Young’s replacement, batting allrounder Trent Thomson, bowled only one over as Balwyn’s main strike bowlers failed to make significant inroads into the visitors’ order. Endeavour Hills managed five partnerships of 20 or more to reach the target with 20 balls to spare. Ben Hanley, Nick Hailey and Fraser Lane all snared two wickets for Balwyn, but they were all too far apart to trouble the visitors. Balwyn captain Hanley said that although his side’s bowling had improved in recent weeks, there was still plenty of work to be done. “We bowled a lot of wides in the first couple of games, but we just struggled a bit, either bowling too short or too full,” Hanley said. Earlier the home side won the toss and batted first but was soon on

■ LOW BLOW FOR HEIGHTS Kew Heights slipped off the top of the division one bowls ladder with a disappointing loss to new leader Ivanhoe on Saturday. On a perfect day for bowls, Ivanhoe proved too strong and won comfortably, 16-87 to 2-66. ■ QUICK TURN FOR GLEN Glen Iris will look to wrap up its Dunstan Shield clash with Hawthorn quickly this Saturday after dominating the opening days play on the weekend. After being bowled out for 181 in 58 overs, Glen Iris turned the game on its head to reduce Hawthorn to 6/30 by the end of the day.

MORE RUNS: Balwyn opener Patrick Tuohey gets the ball away in his unbeaten innings of 62 the back foot, with David Bell and Stuart Baum back in the sheds with the score on 16. Nick Hailey joined Patrick Tuohey and together they grafted their way to 60 before Hailey (31) became the first of Matt Foenander’s three wickets. At the half way stage of the innings, Balwyn was in trouble at 3/70, but Tuohey and Hanley turned the game around with a com-

manding 116-run partnership that put the home side in sight of 200. Hanley was eventually bowled by Foenander for an entertaining 70, and a couple of late hits from Tuohey meant Balwyn finished on 193. Tuohey batted through for 62 not out, but the slow start cost Balwyn at the end of the day. Balwyn now turns its sights to the first two-day game of the season, against Mt Waverley on Saturday,

something Hanley believes will help his team’s chances “Our batting’s been strong in all the three games, so it’s good for the middle order as they’ll get more opportunities,” he said. KEW remains winless in SubDistrict after going down to Oakleigh on Saturday. After Kew made 8/207 from its 45 overs, Oakleigh’s batsmen passed the target with six wickets down.

■ IN THE CHASE A dominant display with bat and ball will mean Koonung Heights must chase an outright victory over Doncaster in Wilson Shield cricket on the weekend. Nick Greenhalf took 4-13 as Doncaster was rolled for 94, before James Fenner’s 53 took Koonung to 2/142 at stumps.

Rickarby’s courage is all in vain A BRAVE innings from injured Tom Rickarby couldn’t save Camberwell from its first Premier Cricket loss of the season at the weekend. The Magpies started the second day at 2-41 in reply to Frankston’s 192, but lost 3-5 late in the innings to be bowled out for 182. Camberwell was on the back foot before play had even started, Rickarby unable to resume his innings because of a back injury sustained at training during the week. That left James Bett to resume with captain Simon Hill and they got off to a good start, moving the score to 68 before Hill was out for 38. Things started to go wrong when

Bett (9), Marcus Berryman (1) and Adam McDermott (8) followed soon after to leave the Magpies at 6/105. Rickarby defied his injury to come in next and for a while it looked as if he and Brendan Drew might steer their side to victory. On a tricky pitch that offered plenty of assistance for the bowlers, both were forced to curb their naturally aggressive games and dig in. The 60-run partnership was broken when Rickarby was caught for 38 with the score on 165, but with Drew batting well at the other end, the Magpies were still favourites. But Frankston took the new ball and cleaned up the tail for the 10-run

win, with Drew last out for 48. Camberwell coach Shannon Young didn’t hold back when talking about his side’s batting. “It’s been poor all year. It’s about time that the batters actually pulled their finger out and showed some application,” he said. “But it was a particularly courageous effort from Tom (Rickarby). He was clearly struggling and showed real determination.’’ Young is confident his team can regroup to face North Melbourne at home on Saturday. “This group will understand the mistakes they made,” he said.
