NEWSMAKER Swinburne associate professor Dr MICHAEL MURPHY, from the Centre of Astrophysics and Supercomputing, has shared in the 2012 Eureka award for scientific research ADRIAN MALEC

A

team of physics researchers from the University of New South Wales and myself have discovered that the four laws of physics – electromagnetism, gravity and the strong and weak forces – are not all constant for space and time, as was believed for thousands of years. By probing the physics of 300 galaxies around the universe, we discovered that the strength of electromagnetism changes gradually from one side of the universe to another, changing the laws of physics. Whether this result stands the test of time, or whether future evidence will refute it, is now the main question. We’re working hard on that. I started doing this research in 1999 as part of my PhD at UNSW. I was awarded several times for my work during that time. I’ve also won research awards from Swinburne after moving here in 2007; before that I was a Research Fellow at Cambridge University in the UK for five years. The main part of the work was analysing a large amount of data from the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope in Chile. We didn’t have to collect the data ourselves – it already existed in their archives – but the preparation and analysis of those data are fundamental parts of our work. I prepared the data from its raw form from the telescope’s archive so that it could be analysed. I also helped a lot with the analysis. The more you research the universe and its laws, the more astounded you become. I don’t have any religious or spiritual beliefs –

I’ve seen no evidence at all for anything of the sort – but every day I’m reminded that the universe is far more fascinating than we’ve previously imagined. The evidence – the reality – is much more interesting than mere beliefs. I think there might be life elsewhere in the universe – I’m guessing, based on what we know

about how life works. It’s the best we can do for now. I hope scientists find ‘‘other life’’ before I die! I think humans will colonise other planets. It will take several hundred years, even if it’s ‘‘only’’ Mars. I have faith in humanity’s future, but only because of science. Without science we are lost. I think science has to become much more

central to our decisions. Science has enabled almost every aspect of modern humanity – to me, humanity is science – and it will get us out of the problems we’ve created, or at least make them bearable. But this is not inevitable. We have to make sure science is at the heart of every decision we make about our future.

Teachers to target Baillieu’s office in strike set for October BY ALISON BARCLAY alison.barclay@fairfaxmedia.com.au

TEACHERS in Premier Ted Baillieu’s electorate of Hawthorn will go out on strike again on October 16 in the first of a new round of stoppages aimed at Coalition MPs’ seats. The Australian Education Union plans a morning rally outside Mr Baillieu’s Camberwell Road office as it steps up its campaign to win

teachers a 30 per cent pay rise over three years, fewer short-term contracts and maximum class sizes of 20. AEU Victorian president and former Camberwell High teacher Mary Bluett told RL next month’s action would involve half-day strikes staggered across the state, with teachers to return to work by lunchtime. But she promised VCE students would not suffer as a result.

‘‘We are trying to minimise the impact the bans have, so we are suspending action during the three weeks of the VCE exams,’’ she said. ‘‘But when Ted makes people angry, he has to expect us to take action.’’ Of the Boroondara schools that spoke to RL after last Wednesday’s full-day strike, only Balwyn Primary had all teachers and all classes present. In the Hawthorn electorate, Haw-

thorn West Primary had only two of its 24 teachers on duty, acting principal Graeme Lane said. ‘‘Teachers’ wages have been eroding against average wages for a significant amount of time and it has not been addressed. As a principal, I want quality teachers and the only way you get quality is if you pay for it. At the moment, teaching is quite rightly not seen as an attractive occupation,’’ said Mr Lane.

Mr Lane, a teacher for 40 years, said parents mostly supported the strike. ‘‘I had no phonecalls at all regarding the school being closed.’’ Glenferrie Primary lost ‘‘some’’ teachers to the strike, with about 20 children supervised by other staff, principal Marlene Laurent said. Auburn Primary principal Marcia Lane said half the school’s 26 teachers walked out, but with enough notice to inform parents.

RATEPAYERS might have to fork out thousands of dollars to help councils cover the cost of collecting the state government’s new fire services levy. The levy, to fund city and rural fire brigades, will be added to rates notices from July 1, 2013, and will replace a fee charged on home and contents, and commercial insurance policies. But Boroondara council has decried it as unjust and wants the state government to collect the tax itself or pay for councils’ administration costs. Boroondara mayor Heinz Kreutz said the public supported funding firefighters fairly, as recommended by the Royal Commission into the Black Saturday bushfires.

‘‘But for local government to once again be asked to be the collection agency for the state government is an unfair burden on our resources,’’ Cr Kreutz said. ‘‘It is critical for the community to know that council will not receive a single cent of this levy.’’ Cr Kreutz said the government had ignored the Municipal Association of Victoria’s suggestion that the State Revenue Office collect the levy. A spokeswoman for treasurer Kim Wells said: ‘‘Councils have been asked to collect the levy as it is more cost-effective to utilise the existing rates system.’’ The change follows complaints from rural dwellers of insurance levy increases of up to 95 per cent, and of having to subsidise uninsured or underinsured property owners.

DENSE suburbs and parklands at the mercy of vandals will create ever greater hazards for children, says Steve Wolf of Hawthorn East. Mr Wolf, a candidate in next month’s council elections, wants a curb on overdevelopment, plus major upgrades of public facilities for Gardiner ward. But he’s happy to start just above the grassroots. ‘‘Security around parks is not good, and we’ve had trouble with graffiti and disturbances,’’ Mr Wolf said. He is also concerned about the removal of the closed dogs’ area in Anderson Park. ‘‘Without any community consultation, the council took it away,’’ he said. A member of Glenferrie Rotary, Mr Wolf is also campaigning to set up a Men’s Shed. ‘‘It is good for retired men’s health,’’ he said. Election day is October 27 and candidate registration closes on September 25. ALISON BARCLAY

Library a $20 million home away from home IF there’s a theme to Camberwell’s new $20 million library, it might be: Lighten up. An arching sky atrium, courtyards and huge windows onto trees, trams and gardens bring sunshine into this haven, which opens for business this week and will host a public party from 6pm this Friday. ‘‘We have such a gorgeous view to the heritage buildings out there,’’ says librarian and team leader Sue Sargeant. ‘‘The big windows bring the outdoors into the library, something we thought about when choosing furniture in greens and natural colours.’’ What if all that sunshine has a soporific effect? ‘‘There’s a lot of space for the public to sit and read – and sleep,’’ Ms Sargeant says. ‘‘That is the way a lot of public libraries are going now, becoming the third place, your other lounge room. People can bring their coffee in here.

They can eat and drink anywhere in the library. That’s why it is very much like your own home.’’ After six years in temporary digs, staff took just two days to move everything into the elegantly revamped three-storey former Civic Centre on Camberwell Road. A courtyard cafe opens next month. The staff are chuffed about their new electronic sorter, which scans returned items, checks them off against borrowers’ accounts and sorts them into bins according to collection. ‘‘Unfortunately it doesn’t come and shelve the books for us, but it takes a lot of manual work off our hands,’’ Ms Sargeant says. Mayor Heinz Kreutz said he hoped library users would be thrilled with the result. ‘‘From the outset, the community has been very involved with the new library’s development,’’ he said.

Residents outraged over liquor in park BY ALISON BARCLAY alison.barclay@fairfaxmedia.com.au

A CLUB’S application to sell alcohol in a Kew East park has been ‘‘fasttracked’’ with Boroondara council refusing to hear objectors, residents claim. About 80 residents, led by Ian Hundley, Julianne Bell and Prue Atkins, are fighting a liquor licence application that would allow Deep-

dene Uniting Cricket Club (DUCC) to sell and consume alcohol at a pavilion just four metres from a playground in Hays Paddock. The residents say a licence enabling drinking three nights a week would exacerbate noise and litter problems and could attract hundreds of rowdy spectators to a park meant for passive use. ‘‘There has been no avenue for the community to have any com-

sion will feel empowered just to approve it,’’ Mr Hundley said. The council’s environment and infrastructure director, David Powell, said council had told the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) that it had ‘‘no objection to the issue of the liquor licence’’ as long as sale and consumption occurred no later than 9pm. Asked why residents had not had

a chance to speak at a council meeting, Mr Powell said the VCGLR, not council, was responsible for hearing objections and determining the application. VCGLR spokeswoman Anita Jonceski said nine objections had been received. Neither DUCC president John Franklin nor treasurer Neill Hocking replied to RL’s questions before deadline.

ment on this, despite the council acknowledging this is a controversial application,’’ Ms Atkins said. ‘‘Having sale and consumption of alcohol for six hours on a Saturday, when families are using the park, that is really hard.’’ Mr Hundley and Ms Bell said they feared Hays’ five other sports club tenants might follow suit. ‘‘Our worry is that if the council has raised no objection, the commis-

VOX POP DO YOU FEEL THE CITY OF BOROONDARA IS LESS SAFE THAN IT USED TO BE? ISABEL GOODSON, 22, Hawthorn Definitely not. I’m from the country, and I feel like it has the same feel here in Melbourne.

JULIA MCCURRY, 20, Hawthorn I feel completely safe. I don’t drive so I walk home, and I’ve never felt I was in danger at any point.

Car theft, drugs lead crime rise VEHICLE theft and drug offences in Boroondara almost doubled as crime rates rose more than 12 per cent in 2011-12. In Boroondara, 6421 crimes were reported in 2011-12 compared with 5715 the previous year — a 12.4 per cent rise. Statewide, reported crime rose 8.2 per cent, to 391,325 cases. It was the first rise in the annual crime rate since 2000-01. Motor vehicle theft in Boroondara rose from 122 offences to 235 and theft from vehicles from 1136 offences to 1269. Drug possession skyrocketed from 83 offences to 156, while cultivation, manufacture and trafficking fell from 29 to 28 offences. There was a rise in crimes involving weapons and explosives – 48 offences up to 74. In crimes against people, non-rape sexual offences in Boroondara were down, from 138 to 109, as were abductions and kidnaps, from 11 to six. But rape crimes were slightly up, from 20 to 22.

There were no homicides, compared with two the previous year. Assaults rose to 406 offences (from 397), property damage crime from 856 to 1025, deception from 237 to 254 and shoplifting from 205 to 214 offences. Residential burglaries fell to 770 offences from 831 but commercial burglaries rose 33 per cent, from 268 offences to 358. Inspector Peter Seiz (pictured) urged owners to fight crime by locking vehicles and removing valuables. ‘‘Also frustrating is the senseless property damage caused by a handful of inconsiderate members of the community,’’ he said. In two cases in the past six months, substantial damage was caused to about 100 vehicles. However, he said he was pleased that residential burglaries fell for the third quarter. ‘‘Most offenders charged with burglary in Boroondara reside elsewhere, so it is imperative that any suspicious behaviour is reported,’’ he said. Signs stating there are no valuables in your vehicle are available from Kew police station.

BOROONDARA REVIEW LOCAL 5


LOCAL BEAT KEW

STREET LEVEL

Weapons and about $50,000 in drugs were allegedly found at a property in Pakington Street, Kew, about 10.30am last Wednesday. Police seized a firearm, ammunition, handcuffs, other weapons and alleged stolen property and chemicals. Dale David William, 29, and Matthew Hawks, 24, were charged with various offences including possessing a commercial quantity of ecstasy, possessing cannabis and possessing a firearm. The men were remanded in custody to appear at Melbourne Magistrates Court.

REPORT CRIME Call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000

GOOD NEWS KEW A man was slashed with a samurai sword then driven to hospital by his alleged attacker about 12.15am on September 2. Police said two men, aged 28 and 34, of no fixed address, were arguing in a flat in Princess Street, Kew, when the younger man allegedly struck the other man with a sword kept in the apartment. The alleged attacker then drove the severely wounded victim to St Vincent’s Hospital. Boroondara police recovered the sword, drugs and drug paraphernalia from the flat and expect to charge a man with various offences.

There was a dramatic fall in reported car thefts in August, with only seven vehicles stolen compared with a record high of 34 in June. ‘‘Please don’t become a victim – lock your cars,’’ Inspector Peter Seiz said.

ASHBURTON A 42-year-old Ashburton woman has been charged with serious assault offences following the alleged stabbing of a woman about 6pm on August 30 at a flat in Markham Avenue, Ashburton. The victim, also aged 42 and from Ashburton, was treated for cuts to the face. The alleged attacker was bailed to attend court at a later date.

ASHBURTON’S vibrant local community is a big winner in this year’s budget, with nine groups receiving a financial helping hand. The council’s budget will deliver $330,500 in community grants to more than 100 beneficiaries throughout Boroondara.

KATHRYN FELDMAIER

City to rein in skyscraper control BY CHRIS HINGSTON

QUOTABLE WE DON’T MIND

chingston@fairfaxmedia.com.au

WITH more and more skyscrapers rising, there are mounting calls for the City of Melbourne to have greater control over large-scale developments. City of Melbourne planning committee chair councillor Ken Ong said the current planning system, in which developments greater than 25,000 square metres were referred to the state planning minister for approval, must be revised. He said the 25,000 square metre

BIG, JUST BE RESPECTFUL AND FOLLOW THE PLANNING RULES ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

benchmark was outdated, and a larger threshold – perhaps as high as 50,000 square metres – should be considered for the City of Melbourne. The call follows an application for a Queen Street development which is 226 metres high and of more than 55,000 square metres which was

presented to the council for referral to the state government. Cr Ong said the development “ignored all planning rules and guidelines” and instead aimed to net developers the greatest return. He said it was an example of the larger developments that came before the council and were now appearing outside the CBD – including the likes of the North Melbourne Woolworths in Canning Street. “We don’t mind big, just be respectful and follow the planning rules and guidelines,” he said. Lord mayor Robert Doyle said his

preference was for the City of Melbourne to deal with all planning applications – with none referred to the state government. Last week councillors passed a motion by Cr Cathy Oke for staff to investigate how to improve the process which involved development applications being referred to the state government for approval. Her motion was sparked by the largescale 70-plus storey Queensbridge Street Southbank development. She said a debate about greater planning powers was a “conversation the City of Melbourne had to have”.

Social media election warning BY ALANA SCHETZER alana.schetzer@fairfax.com.au

CANDIDATES in next month’s local government elections have been warned that unauthorised social media election material will not be tolerated. A current Victorian councillor has been sent a written warning from the Local Government Compliance and Investigations Inspectorate over unauthorised election material on social media. The inspectorate declined to identify the councillor, but said several other complaints have been made in the lead-up to the October 27 elections. All matters have been resolved. ‘‘The inspectorate is working with candidates and councils to ensure transparent and fair elections and this includes resolving issues responsively through practical advice and recommendations,’’ the inspectorate said. Social media is expected to play a significant role the elections, with candidates using popular platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Flickr. Victorian Local Governance Association president and Yarra Ranges councillor Samantha Dunn said she suspected most breaches were caused by confusion rather than deliberate attempts to mislead. The Local Government Act requires all electoral material to contain the name and address of the person who authorised the electoral advertisement. 8 BOROONDARA REVIEW LOCAL

RESIDENTS IN THE FRAME Stonnington residents and community groups had a ball dressing up in costumes – including the skimpier variety – for photo shoots at Prahran Town Hall last week. Among them were Jovanka Stoimenovski, Greta Weiner and Rosie-Jean Jones (above), who recreated a 1944 photo of Joy Duckett and friends Trace and Jan (top). The modern bather wearers were taking part in Melbourne Fringe Festival community art project Double Take, a highlight of the festival’s 30th anniversary celebrations. Aimed at recreating moments from the past, Double Take involved residents reenacting photos from up to 80 years ago.

SEPTEMBER 12, 2012

CHAPEL Street shop owners woke to what they said was the worst case of vandalism they had seen after the rear of their shops were covered in black and pink paint recently. CCTV footage recorded by one of the shop owners on Thursday, August 30, revealed a man and woman walking up the laneway, which runs parallel to Chapel Street between Union and Green streets, with a fire extinguisher that had been converted into an oversized paint gun that sprayed paint as high as seven metres in some areas. Stonnington council advised traders it would not pay for the clean-up, leaving some traders up to $500 out of pocket. Business owner Ron Davison said it was the worst case of vandalism he had seen in more than 25 years. “It’s plain gutless – there is a great difference between graffiti and vandalism,’’ he said. ‘‘They obviously did not see the cameras filming them. The footage has been given to the police.” The laneway is renowned among street artists as one of Prahran’s most beautifully painted laneways. Local artist Wayne Tindall has spearheaded legal painting days with some of Melbourne’s best street artists to create a gallery-like atmosphere. While the vandals clearly attempted to avoid the artworks, stray drops of paint have left Tindall with a restoration job to do. “The intention is clear – they simply wanted to damage our properties,” Tindall said.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ RATE DEBATE I recently was made aware that Boroondara’s rateable land is worth more than $71.8 billion. Since land values are created and sustained by the presence and activity of the community, they constitute a rational source for community revenue. Hence site value rating should replace the current Capital Improved Value for municipal purposes. Why should someone who builds a granny flat or installs a water tank be penalised with higher rates? Geoff / via email ■ FUND NOT VIABLE Please, please Boroondara get us out of this super fund debacle (‘‘Ratepayers to fund super debt’’, RL, August 29). Why did anyone agree to it in the first place? Rita / via email ■ NOT NATURAL It is not easy to reconcile the actual state of Boroondara’s natural

environment with the picture portrayed in Boroondara Review Local (‘‘How green is our city’’, August 29) and the city’s naming as Victoria’s most sustainable city for 2012 by Keep Australia Beautiful. The fact is that many of the ‘‘magnificent private gardens’’ referred to in the article are being lost to development, primarily that of new detached residential houses being built to rear boundaries. The provision of space for back gardens is optional under the Victorian government’s Building Code. It is a case of out of sight, out of mind, I suppose, but comparing aerial photographs of Boroondara of the past to today show the devastation very clearly. This type of development is resulting in major vegetation loss, including canopy trees. I have asked the Boroondara council, whose Tree Protection Local Law was introduced in late 2006 to protect canopy trees on private property, to measure the loss of trees in recent years but they doggedly refuse

to do so. I have also recommended that the council should represent the issue on behalf of the residents of Boroondara to the state government to seek reform of the Building Code. I raised the issue again at the council meeting on August 27 but did not receive a response. Ian Hundley / Balwyn North

■ SOMETHING’S FISHY I write in response to “Port council supports Fishermans Bend debate in Parliament” (RL, August 29). Why has Port Phillip council been excluded from the crucial planning of the new suburbs Montague and Fishermans Bend? The state government must consult with local council and the community to ensure that critical infrastructure such as childcare, schools, libraries and sporting facilities are provided. The last thing Port Melbourne residents need is 75,000 people on their doorstep, draining the already inadequate infrastructure. Bernadene Voss / Port Melbourne

BOROONDARA REVIEW LOCAL 9

Apocalypse now As Boroondara council gains new powers to tackle eyesores, ALISON BARCLAY puts together a hit list

C

nothing they can do about it.’’ But from September 21, they can. Boroondara’s new Amenity (Unsightly Land Amendment) Local Law will give the council power to fine owners who allow their property to become dilapidated, dangerous and such an eyesore that it compromises local amenity. An initial warning can be followed by a $2000 fine, then daily penalties of $200 for non-compliance, with recourse to the Magistrates Court if all else fails. The City of Moreland in Melbourne’s north is already a few steps ahead – not only did it enact a similar law in 2006, it also levies ‘‘differential rates’’ on unoccupied

land to encourage owners to maintain its appearance. Moreland has tough views on the effect of eyesores on the local economy: ‘‘Potential customers associate poor housekeeping practice with poor business practice.’’ Such laws are thought to be a response to land-banking, whereby owners delay developing their sites until the market is right, and to some owners’ resistance to heritage overlays that can limit what can be built on a site. Overlays don’t require owners to maintain or restore their buildings, which can lead to what even VCAT has decried as ‘‘demolition by neglect’’ – and an order condemning the building.

Some pundits have suggested encouraging owners to maintain heritage buildings by cutting or removing permit fees for alterations in overlay areas. The Real Estate Institute of Victoria says developers already face hefty rates and taxes while they hold land, plus the risk of losing a lot of money if the development misses the market. ‘‘We would want to understand whether this new law [in Boroondara] will eventually have a track record of making the desired impact. Otherwise you might be forcing extra costs on to the end user,’’ REIV spokesman Robert Larocca says.‘‘It would be a good idea

to understand why a particular site is not being developed at this time.’’ The co-owner of 851 Burke, Sam Raydan, won VCAT approval in 2009 to build a seven-storey hotel. But he’s not rushing things.‘‘I hope we will deliver by next year, when the market has improved,’’ he says. As Boroondara council refuses to say whether this or any other site is in the firing line for fines, we’ve compiled our own hit list. These are the area’s worst eyesores, as nominated by residents.

all it grunge, call it apocalypse chic, call it a great place to shoot a film about the end of the world. It’s all that, but Camberwell folk are fed up with the scene at 851 Burke Road. ‘‘It’s a horrible blot on the landscape, and we would love to see it developed,’’ says Camberwell Traders Association spokeswoman Kerry Daly of the old red brick State Bank building, long boarded up and its ruined ceilings in shreds. The traders have repeatedly complained to the council over the past 15 years.‘‘We asked them,‘What of the potential for vermin? It is a rubbish dump?’ But they basically give us the answer that there is

851 Burke Road, Camberwell Boroondara’s most enduring eyesore is surely the old State Bank building, now just a dessicated Art Nouveau facade in the middle of Camberwell’s biggest shopping street. The site belongs to the Raydan family, which also own Sofia’s Pizza House next door. The Raydans were granted a demolition permit in 1998, by which time the bank’s innards had already been torn away via the laneway behind. Since 2002 there have been nine permit applications and appeals, with VCAT approving in 2009 a seven-storey, 82-room hotel – a two-year permit that has since expired. However, co-owner Sam Raydan hopes work will begin behind the National Trust-listed facade next year ‘‘when the market improves’’. Why the delay? ‘‘It is the bank,” says Raydan.“Builders need a lot of money, and we need $15 million. Also, there were lots of objections – anyone can object, and that holds things up.’’ Many locals wanted a hotel in the area, he says. ‘‘It would be the best for the street, the best for the area, the best for everybody. We’ve had a lot of support from people here. People say, ‘We have some visitors come but we have nowhere for them to stay’.’’

1311 Toorak Road, Camberwell Fowl breeder William Aisbett would be alarmed at the foul state of his former abode, built in 1917 soon after he founded the Burwood Poultry Farm. The weatherboard house has been stripped and defaced and its garden trashed since becoming the subject of a four-way war between the Boroondara council, VCAT, the National Trust and owner Katarzyna Darmos in 2010. Darmos planned to raze the house and build 10 townhouses, but was delayed when the trust alerted the council to the garden’s historic grotto. Then it was found the house had been omitted by mistake from the local heritage overlay. The council fixed the glitch too late; the morning after, a VCAT inspection found the grotto demolished and the house bereft of its Edwardian ornaments. ‘‘The Tribunal is not required to and makes no finding either

way regarding the lawfulness or otherwise of the events described above,’’ declared VCAT in September last year, and granted Darmos her permit. A year later, Stoneleigh Terraces – offering ‘‘a dynamic lifestyle in the heart of a vibrant community’’ – are no longer being marketed off the plan, and the council had to attend the site last month after neighbours complained about its dilapidation. Darmos did not respond to RL questions before going to press. To see how the house once looked, visit the Fading Victoria website, where photographer Rowan Crowe has posted his poignant before-and-after pictures.

4 & 5. SUCH A LOVELY PLACE 138 Barkers Road, Hawthorn Welcome to the California Hotel, a once-immaculate bastion of mid-century Modernism, still advertised on hotel.com.au at $244 a night. The hotel was bought by Thorney Holdings in 2007 and now its retro-chic rooms lie in ruins, windows and furniture smashed, walls graffiti-covered and balconies reclaimed by a jungle of vines. Kew police keep an eye on ‘‘Motel Hell’’ while Thorney ponders whether to awaken its permit to build an 85-unit retirement village on the site. ‘‘We have been contemplating a number of different options, as we have been doing for some time, but no firm decision has been made yet,’’ says Thorney CEO Alan Miller. He says he keeps ‘‘in very regular contact’’ with the council about shoring up the site’s security and keeping trespassers out.

6. PRETTY BUT VACANT 312 and 314 Cotham Road, Kew They’re still pretty, and in a most desirable location on a tramline near St George’s Hospital. But the fate of these vacant 1920s houses has hung in the balance since July when Boroondara council refused to issue a permit to build a three-storey, 40-dwelling complex after receiving 15 objections citing overdevelopment and overshadowing. In 2008, VCAT approved five townhouses for the double block and the then-owner sold the land and permits for $3.42 million in 2009.

t’s a cold Thursday evening and most shops are closed, but inside Kikki.K stationery store, a small group of women are sipping champagne and being told to become friends with paper. “After tonight you can go home and change your life through paper,” Marie Susanne promises. Our reaction is a mixture of wariness and disbelief. It just can’t be that easy. Swedish home and office retailer Kikki.K holds

We diligently fill in our workbooks as Marie Susanne uses her display of store products to show us how the paper-flow system works.

hen musical maestros get together, anything can happen. Self-described “master drummer” David Jones discovered this firsthand in 2010, part-way through rehearsal for an Australia Day concert at Federation Square. During a sound check, he began jamming with long-time collaborator Evripides Evripidou, who plays bass guitar, and Vinod Prasanna on Indian bamboo flutes. “Prasanna was playing with us literally for five minutes and it sounded so incredible, I turned to the other guys and said,‘We have to record, this is so special’,” Jones says. It was the quickest album turnaround the veteran drummer had ever experienced.The trio split the costs and recorded an album, First Meeting, in an afternoon. It was released within a week. “It was very quick and had a fresh, live feeling to it,” he says.“It was totally improvised and that

became a blueprint for us of what could happen live.” With this in mind, audiences are in for a treat this weekend as the musicians, collectively known as Brothers, enjoy a Sunday jam session at Kew Court House. They’ll combine universal melodies and rhythms, marrying Jones’ jazz background with classical Indian music from Prasanna’s background. ‘‘I know the feeling on the day will be very special, being a Sunday afternoon, and it’s a lovely intimate venue,” Jones says. He notes that it will have unintentional audience participation.“Every time we play, the audience influences it in a very good way. They become part of the whole experience,” he says. Jones discovered the joys of percussion as a boy, beginning on pots and pans before upgrading to bongos and then a small drum kit. He’s since added cowbells and Tibetan singing bowls to his repertoire. Not surprising, then, that the Brothers’ music moves from meditative into joyful and playful. “We do get into a very nice groove,” Jones says. LINLEY WILKIE

LUCY DI PAOLO

LOCAL LOWDOWN

OVER THE FENCE Glen Iris neighbours BETTY CASEY, 82, and JANINE HAYNES, 49, have bonded over the expansion of Delmont Private Hospital BETTY I have been here for 14 years. Janine and I have had a lot to do with each other with all the meetings (about the expansion of Delmont Hospital). One day I had Councillor Kevin Chow here for morning tea to show him what a big building next door would do to my place. I heard Janine call out to come to the front. You would swear that we had arranged the whole thing, because there was the biggest truck that you’d ever set eyes on, holding up the traffic and no one could get in or out of the street.That was the beginning of all this. I thought it was going to be a nice quiet place but it has been hectic ever since I moved in. It is going to just keep getting bigger and I will be the little old lady living here, surrounded by development. I didn’t retire until I was 70 so I have been making the most of what I have left and I’m always busy. I

walk for an hour every day. About three or four years ago, Janine came to my rescue. It was Christmas Eve and I had gotten up early.After I did my baking I thought, ‘I’ve got time to go for my walk.’ I crossed Warrigal Road to 7-Eleven to get the paper and I fell over in the driveway and broke my wrist. Three cars drove around me before I eventually got up and sat in the gutter. Janine found me at about the same time that a man asked if I needed help. I was in Epworth hospital for nine days; I honestly believe I had a breakdown that day.

JANINE I’ve lived in the same house on and off since I was born and Betty and I always chat.We collect her mail when she is away and she always gives us little presents, usually chocolate or wine. She will ask Dave, my husband, to chop back her trees if they are overhanging and he mows

her nature strip; nothing is a drama. We have been through a lot together with the expansion of the Delmont Hospital next door. We have been to that many meetings together and it’s been quite stressful so we have had to support each other. It’s been a pest – and I’m being polite.The whole neighbourhood has always been very friendly and everyone helps and supports each other. That time when I found Betty at 7-Eleven when I was going to get the morning paper, I got the fright of my life. I couldn’t believe that no one stopped to help.We’ve been through a lot together.

WHAT’S IN STORE?

Marcello Ricciuti has been around flowers since he was a child. He grew up on a farm, and helped his Dad sell flowers from a truck on the side of the road. After spending 15 years in retail management, Ricciuti returned to his roots, opening Bloomsville three years ago.

The big sellers at Bloomsville are flowers and unusual foliage grouped together in individual, artistic designs for the customer who wants something a little different. Gifts ranges are vintage inspired, from handmade Italian gift cards, to candles, soaps and body products, to Elk costume jewellery.

WHO’S BUYING?

WORTH A VISIT?

Locals and regulars know what they like at Bloomsville but they still give staff artistic licence to create that something special in their arrangements. Ricciuti has noticed more and more customers are coming from further afield – especially from suburbs such as Ivanhoe and Templestowe – on weekly visits, buying flowers for the home and for gifts.

With the start of Spring, freesias, sweet peas and hyacinths are racing out the door, often combined with unusual foliage such as magnolia, pilmia and silver suede. A bouquet to congratulate a baby’s arrival can be complemented by a gift for the newborn, such as a knitted beanie, handmade soft toy or an embroidered bib.

ADVERTISERS PLEASENOTE Much hardship and difficulty is caused to job-seekers by misleading advertising placed in employment columns. Our Professional Employment and Situations Vacant columns are reserved for advertisements which carry a SPECIFIC and GENUINE offer of employment. All employment advertisements must state clearly the type of job offered and remuneration offered. (i.e. salary package, retainer plus commission or commission only). "Commission only'' jobs are only accepted in these columns PROVIDED that this is clearly stated in the ad AND the employer is paying Workcover and Superannuation. If not, then these advertisements MUST be placed in an alternate classification such as Self Employment Opportunities. Placing misleading advertisements is an offence against the Competition and Consumer Act and all advertisements are subject to the publisher's approval. For further advice contact the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission on 9290 1800. Whilst Metro Media Publishing make every attempt to screen job advertisements, WE DO NOT ACCEPT LIABILIT Y FOR ADVERTISERS WHO FAIL TO C O M P LY W I T H T H E S E REGULATIONS.

Magic season for basketball team emcrae@fairfaxmedia.com.au

IT’S BEEN a big week for Hawthorn Magic’s under-14 girls, and the next month isn’t about to get any quieter. Fresh from winning their way into this week’s preliminary final of the Victorian Junior Basketball Championships, the team also found out they had qualified for the National Club Championships in Adelaide in October. They become the first Magic team to qualify for the prestigious tournament, and it’s a proud moment according to team spokesman Pat Coloe. ‘‘They’re over the moon with it,’’ Coloe says. ‘‘It’s taken them from a middle-of-the-road basketball club to pretty much the elite status.’’ Hawthorn – along with fellow Victorian qualifiers Knox, Melbourne and Dandenong – will compete against the best club teams of their age from around the country in a competition that forms part of Basketball Australia’s elite pathways program. If that wasn’t enough, five of the Magic’s under-14 girls were also

selected to attend a national intensive training program run by Basketball Victoria. Sophie Balson, Daphne Keck, Charlotte Coloe, Gabby Collins and Claudia Armato, will train with the squad once a week. The girls have been building towards this success for some time, with most of the group playing in the same team for several years. ‘‘There was a comment made last week by the head coach of Hawthorn Magic that girls basketball can get a bit of bitchiness or selfishness, but that our girls all get along together and play for the team not for themselves,’’ Coloe says. The team, along with coach Michael Dimattina, will continue its finals series this Friday, and the national tournament begins October 1, with Hawthorn’s first game against Illawarra.

BRIEFS

Tigers roar into prelims BY EWEN MCRAE emcrae@fairfaxmedia.com.au BALWYN continued its charge through the EFL division 1 finals with a comprehensive win over Scoresby in Sunday’s semi-final. Balwyn led from start to finish, piling on the goals in the second half to triumph 11.14 (80) to 3.3 (21) at Tormore Reserve. Balwyn started the better of the two teams to kick an early goal and take the first lead. It would be the only goal of the quarter as Balwyn failed to turn its dominance around the ground into a significant advantage. Balwyn wasted several promising forward thrusts, ignoring some strong chances and failing to make the distance on two set shots. The Tigers got off to a convincing start in the second term with a goal inside two minutes, but Scoresby soon clicked into gear to kick two of their own, bringing the margin back to three points. It was a real arm wrestle for the rest of the quarter as both teams struggling to get the ball inside the forward 50. Scoresby ruckman Luke Van Rheenen dominated the hit outs but Balwyn won the clearances, and a late goal to Luke Barker just before half-time gave the Tigers a 10-point buffer at the long break. Scoresby looked like they might break the game open early in the third term, with two set shots on goal, but their failure to convert came back to haunt them. Balwyn slammed on three goals in a five-minute period, with some great running through the middle

DE LA SALLE and Old Xaverians will meet in the Victorian Amateur Football Association Premier preliminary final this Sunday after winning and losing their respective semi-finals at the weekend. It’s hard to get a read on the form ofeither team, after Xavs late-season form slump and the unpredictability of De La Salle’s entire season. The teams first met in round eight, with Xavs winning by 21 points on their way to topping the ladder at the mid-point of the season. De La Salle took some revenge in the season’s penultimate game with a 40-point smashing that could be the best pointer to how this week’s game will play. While Old Xav’s have fallen away slightly in recent weeks, they did have a top two spot sewn up a long way out from finals, so they are still a dangerous team and will be hard to overcome. Both teams have proven goal kickers, with De La’s Sam Pickett finishing third in the competition goal kickers and Xav’s Matthew Handley just behind in fourth. While De La Salle has better form, it’s hard to see Xaverians going out in straight sets and they remain the likely team to progress in the finals. The winner will play Collegians in Sunday week’s grand final, with Collegians likely to start favourites, regardless of who they play. – EWEN McCRAE

HOUSE OF PAIN: A tackle turns ugly at the Balwyn-Scoresby match. from Steve Kenna the highlight. Balwyn went into the final break with a four-goal lead. Balwyn coach Dan Donati implored his troops to keep pushing in the final term and it didn’t take long for the Tigers to take control. Donati was pleased with his team’s efforts, particularly keeping

Scoresby to just three goals. “We pride ourselves on defence; we want to keep sides to low scores, and our back six today were amazing,” Donati said.

Loss takes Old Xaverians on hard road to finals OLD Xaverians will have to qualify for the grand final the hard way after letting a first-half lead slip to lose to Collegians in the VAFA premier semi-finals on Saturday. Despite leading for the entire first half, Xavs lost 15.11 (101) to 9.9 (63) winners at Sportscover Arena. Xavs got off to the better start, limiting Collegians’ forward entries and pumping the ball forward. Xavs took a 13-point lead into the

first break, and a second-quarter arm wrestle meant little changed as neither team could break away. Collegians started to click into gear in the third term, running the ball through the midfield and kicking with more precision. At one stage Collegians found themselves 21-points clear but Xavs showed why they led the competition for much of the year to claw their way back into the contest.

Collegians were able to turn a seven-point lead at the final break into a comfortable win with five unanswered goals. Xaverians coach Andy Gowers said he wasn’t worried about the team’s form. “I’ll back my boys because we’ve had a pretty good year till now and we’re confident no matter who we play,” Gowers said. Collegians will have the week off
