Since EAMON and CATH SHEAHAN opened Miss Frank, they have been horrified at the backlash from neighbours who say the cafe has caused parking problems and harmed other businesses in Through Road, Camberwell

Editor Jane Hutchinson SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

ATH: We’ve faced considerable opposition, especially now that Boroondara council has allowed us to apply for a liquor licence. We think the crux of the matter is envy. We’ve come along and we are successful. As for parking, the question is: what do traders think is a reasonable distance for customers to walk? Not all customers can park right outside the business they wish to patronise. If they are willing to walk 30 or 40 metres, they will find parking all down Riversdale Road. We don’t believe there is a parking issue. For a long time this strip was very quiet and very tired. That has changed. Eamon grew up at the other end of Through Road and knows this area intimately. He knows there are people who have been here a long time, and they have a sense of ownership about what goes on. We live in Camberwell but used to find ourselves travelling into Hawthorn or Richmond looking for quality venues and coffee. We said: “Why don’t we close (our) Richmond place and bring our business strengths here?” Since the articles in RL and Epicure we have had nothing but positive feedback. We can’t understand why this [backlash] has happened. A new business comes along and brings potential new customers to other businesses. Isn’t that Business 101? The hostility has blown my mind, especially that night in the council chamber when we were granted a permit to increase our trading hours. One particular woman – whether for cold comfort or a quiet victory – screamed at Eamon that he

was arrogant and rude. To quote her, she hoped Eamon would “do his nuts on the business”. The council chairman sent security to escort her out. We have a right to open a business in a strip zoned for business. It isn’t like we are opening a brothel or strip club. If we are granted a liquor licence, we won’t be opening for dinner. We open from 7am to 5pm

every day. Being a youngish person with two kids, I don’t want to work at night. But some customers have asked: “Are you interested in hosting 40th or 50th birthday parties?” That’s why we’ve asked for a licence. Doing business is difficult. But when you have other people on the side pulling you down, it makes it more difficult.

PROFILE CATH SHEAHAN WHAT I LIKE ABOUT CAMBERWELL: It’s a nice place with plenty of trams and trains. WHAT I’D CHANGE: The attitudes towards a successful business are just staggering.

Ashburton cop shop falling short

Elderly warm to heat watch

SIX months after it was supposed to be completed, the new-look Ashburton Police Station is open only six hours a day and has no full-time officers. The building in Y Street underwent a $500,000 revamp last year, with asbestos removed, wiring and

security upgraded, and furniture and carpets replaced. Works had been due to finish in September, but Ashburton officers were not able to move in until a month ago and some are still in temporary digs at Camberwell police station. The delay has prompted Burwood MLA Graham Watt to ask his own party why the station has yet to offer

full service. He told Police Minister Peter Ryan in Parliament full service should happen “as soon as possible to ensure a greater police presence”. Mr Watt told RL the station was staffed part-time by officers who also worked at Camberwell. RL understands the station is open only from 10am to 4pm. “I am in constant contact with the

Police Minister about when we can expect the service upgrades to happen,” Mr Watt said. “I’m not expecting it to be too long.” Ashburton’s officer in charge, Senior Sergeant Steve Burke, denied the station was operating at reduced capacity. “We have resumed the services we had prior to the renovation,” Mr Burke said.

Mini-market offers opportunity for funds fun SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

AN Ashburton community group is calling for help in cooking up a new fund-raising venture. Ashburton Support Services, a not-for-profit group that provides support to senior residents, has launched a monthly mini-market and sausage sizzle at the Ashy Op Shop in a bid to generate funds. Organisers need more volunteers to help run the event at the High Street shop on the first Friday of each month. Volunteer co-ordinator Margaret Campion said the community event aimed ‘‘to create a little bit of fun’’ for the shopping village, raise money and promote Ashburton Support Services. ‘‘But we need volunteers to help us with the barbecue, as well as in the op shop,’’ she said. Ms Campion said the service also needed volunteer drivers, gardeners and bakers, along with shop assistants for Saturday mornings. For details, call 9885 3815. LISA HIGGINSON

Which is the best hearing aid for you?

A SERVICE that helps Boroondara’s elderly residents cope with intense weather is proving vital as the country endures its hottest summer on record. Boroondara council’s Watch Program is designed to protect the well-being of vulnerable and isolated members of the community by contacting them during times of extreme weather. The register currently contains details of 112 residents, who are contacted by Health, Ageing and Disability Services staff on hot days and advised what they need to do to protect themselves, including drinking plenty of water. If the residents cannot be contacted, their next of kin are informed. With consecutive days of sweltering temperatures hitting the state, the program is providing reassurance for residents. Kew pensioner Lillian Callaghan, 82, signed up to the register following the death of her husband. ‘‘I feel better knowing that someone will be calling me, as I have no blood relatives that live around me,’’ she said. ‘‘I do think it has got hotter in recent years, but I am learning to cope. I make sure I get all my jobs done before sunrise and then I close the blinds and stay inside.’’ For more information about the Watch Program, contact 9278 4777.

Zone change to protect streets BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

BOROONDARA’S residential streets will be protected from high-rise, high-density development under the state government’s reformed zones – if the zones are rushed into law in the next 14 months. But major shopping centres, which lie outside the strictly residential zones, might get the nod for more residential towers. The zones, released by Planning Minister Matthew Guy last week, divides residential areas into Neighbourhood, General and Growth. Neighbourhood, for areas with a distinctive heritage character, will limit new housing to eight metres in height, with no increases allowed. General, for ‘‘modest growth and diversity’’, will allow nine metres, with councils able to vary it. In Growth zones, new housing can rise to 13.5 metres if councils approve.

Boroondara mayor Jack Wegman said all Boroondara’s residential areas would be covered by Neighbourhood and General. “The revised zones will allow council to stick to our neighbourhood character studies,’’ he said. ‘‘We commend the minister on that.” Cr Wegman urged Mr Guy to fasttrack the zones so councils could amend their planning schemes by the July 2014 deadline or risk all zones defaulting to General. “We are ready to roll,” he said. “We don’t want it held up in the Department [of Planning and Community Services]. We have our one chance in a generation to get something that meets our expectations. We don’t want to sacrifice our amenity in Boroondara because the bureaucrats haven’t done what they should have done.” He said the change would not stop new apartment towers at Camberwell Junction, where 14-storey Aerial opened last year.

A window on to fashion world

SWOON-WORTHY: Brem Perera and Keegan Hunt support new designers

IF there’s one word artists and designers hate to hear, it’s ‘‘Who?’’ But the more baffled their customers are, the more Brem Perera and Keegan Hunt know they’re doing the right thing. “I like to think most people don’t know half the brands in our shop,” says Perera, co-owner of Swoon in Auburn Road, Hawthorn. “The majority of designers we stock are not well known. They are honing their aesthetic.” The tantalising brands Swoon stocks include Neo Dia, Evye and Where Lovers Lie – names that the store is highlighting as part of this month’s L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival. Swoon’s elegant Victorian-era windows will feature rotating exhibitions of clothes as art, accompanied by online interviews with the designers. The exhibitions run until March 31. After a year in Auburn Village, has the pair detected a local style? “The look is quite feminine and f loaty,” says Hunt. ‘‘Women are always looking for colour rather than black or neutrals.”

VOX POP SHOULD MISS FRANK BE GRANTED A LIQUOR LICENCE? MEG DICKMAN, Heathmont Yes. I think it would actually help the area rather than hinder it. It’s going to bring in younger people, and that’s always a good thing. But the council should address the parking issues.

JIM VASSOS, Surrey Hills Most definitely. It’s a great place to come to, and it gets a whole lot of people together.

JASON DANIEL, Burwood Absolutely. It’s going to bring a bit more colour to the suburb. It’s a great location, and I think it’s a really good idea.

Parents fete bilingual idea for schools BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

BOROONDARA’S littlest linguists have thrown their support behind Hawthorn Secondary College’s idea to offer foreign language immersion from 2014, saying it would allow them to keep studying full-time in two languages and be bilingual by adulthood. But some disagree with the idea that only one language – probably

French or Mandarin – would be offered. “Why not have both?” asked Zosia, a Mandarin immersion student at Richmond West Primary. The 11-year-old from Hawthorn began learning Mandarin in Prep, and her mother Kirsten said Zosia and her brother Zoni seemed to learn more quickly in Mandarin than they did in English. “Zosia came home from school one day and told me how the dino-

saurs became extinct, and what blew me away is that she learned about them in Mandarin,” Kirsten said. Zosia wants to continue in Mandarin but can’t find a secondary school that offers immersion. The same problem confronts the children of Camberwell Primary, which offers French immersion from Prep and will show it to spectacular effect on March 17 when it holds its annual French fete.

“That sort of immersion does not exist [at secondary level],” principal Helen Warnod said. “There is currently a discussion about Hawthorn Secondary, and among the many suggestions put forward is immersion. ‘‘We must not underestimate how many of our past students ... now work globally and still use their French in some way. They say ‘My French helped me to get my challenging job in London or Paris’.”

Fete co-ordinator Freddie Petithory said that when she moved her family from London to Melbourne two years ago, she chose to live in Camberwell so her two children could learn bilingually. “It develops so many other skills when you have to cope in two languages,” she said. Camberwell Primary School will hold its French fete on Sunday, March 17, at 290 Camberwell Road, Camberwell.

Bowled and the beautiful HAVING been stashed in a garage for 18 years, this World War I memorial board not surprisingly needs a good spit and polish. What did surprise historian Sue Barnett was a pencilled note on the back. The carved wooden board, which festooned the long-gone Surrey Hills Bowling Club, was made by artist John Kendrick Blogg (1851-1936), whose work hangs in the National Gallery of Victoria. “Blogg was an industrial chemist who came to Melbourne from Canada. Around 50, he took up wood carving and his skill was quite astounding,” Ms Barnett said. A man of multiple talents, Blogg eventually became perfumer to the Victorian governor. When in 1995 the club was razed to make way for flats, Surrey Hills couple Ken and Jocelyn Hall stored the board in their garage. Thanks to

Good work, in any language ELEVEN Boroondara students have scored top marks in VCE language studies despite having to learn on weekends or by correspondence. Camberwell High did especially well; four of its VCE students last year scored between 40 and 50 in Vietnamese, two did likewise in Spanish and one in Indonesian. Hawthorn Secondary’s Panah Sadat Fasihi took honours in Persian, while Italian was upheld by Balwyn High’s Andrew Longo and Kew High’s Alexander Napolitano. The 11 were among 3500 VCE students enrolled at the Victorian School of Languages, which offers 50 languages via distance education or weekend classes. This year it offers classes in Chin (Falam) and Zuma to help Burmese refugees. ALISON BARCLAY

Plan rainchecked for creek impact BY ALISON BARCLAY abarclay@mmpgroup.com.au

A RAIN-garden project worth $400,000 in a Surrey Hills park is on hold after residents claimed a pipeline would starve nearby trees of water and destroy animal habitats. The Medlow Reserve rain garden was proposed by Boroondara council to stop erosion along Back Creek. But residents of 23 nearby properties said the council had failed to do an environment study of the park, which was home to kookaburras, owls, magpies and possums. One resident, who did not want to be named, said a similar project in Balwyn was “dried up and dead�. “There are other ways of managing f looding and erosion that don’t require the destruction of the environment,� the resident said. “The council officers indicated

they didn’t have an environmental study, and they said they would get one. The proposal would destroy a whole lot of trees, and a great many birds and animals would no longer have a habitat.� The resident said gums and elms on properties backing on to the Back Creek parklands relied on the creek for water. “Most of us don’t see why this needs to be done,’’ he said. ‘‘There is some erosion, but there has never been any damage to properties or an insurance claim.� Council environment and infrastructure director David Powell said Maling ward councillor Jane Addis and project manager Charles Turner met residents last month and will meet again on March 26 to present alternative designs. He said the design work was on hold as concerns were considered.

â–  PAINT HUE AND CRY Houses not in heritage overlays can be painted any colour the owner likes, even if it upsets the neighbours, Boroondara councillors heard last week. They granted a permit for two townhouses on a block in Wiseman Street, Hawthorn East, despite requests by neighbours that they be painted in a way to make them less obtrusive. But planning officers said the council had no power to do so if the site had no heritage overlay.

Site accidents cost $7.5m MORE than 130 injury claims from construction sites in Stonnington, costing more than $7.5 million in wages and medical bills, have been reported to WorkSafe Victoria in the past five years. More than 100 of the 136 building site incidents involved workers being hit by moving objects or being hurt as a result of slips, trips and falls. But the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union says the figures do not show the full extent of risks facing construction workers. Occupational health and safety manager Dr Gerard Ayers said fear of being sacked and suffering financial hardship discouraged some workers from reporting a risk or incident. Reported accidents at construction sites in Stonnington have steadily declined from 29 in 2008 to 18 last year, according to WorkSafe.

Countdown to cyclist report BY LISA HIGGINSON lhigginson@mmpgroup.com.au

WHEEL THING: Brian Reid, from Hawthorn Rotary, counts riders at the corner of Chapel Street and Alexandra Avenue

PEDAL-PUSHING commuters are on the rise in Stonnington, an official count is expected to show. Bicycle Network’s annual Super Tuesday Bike Count last week recorded rider movements at 22 sites across Stonnington, including the busy intersection of Alexandra Avenue and Chapel Street, South Yarra. The aim of the count, which is done by volunteers, is to provide councils with up-to-date information on bike-riding patterns and recommendations for improving cycling facilities. Official figures will be released in a report, and organisers said they believed there has been a jump in the number of cyclists. Bicycle Network’s Bike Futures

manager, Mike Williamson, said the data was critical for councils in planning infrastructure improvements. The information is timely for Stonnington council, which has just announced plans to create a cycling reference group to provide input on initiatives and infrastructure. The council is seeking expressions of interest for a two-year term. The group will work with the council, providing input into cycling projects and information on issues. Mayor Matthew Koce said busy roads and packed public transport during peak hours meant more people were jumping on their bikes. ‘‘It means we have to have a good look at building on the programs and infrastructure we have and how we share our roads to make it safer,’’ he said.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ LET THE KIDS MARCH Very sad to see that due to the teachers’ pay dispute Kew Primary and Kew East Primary School students will not be able to take part in the Kew Festival parade on Saturday, March 23 (‘‘Kids march letter plea’’, RL, March 6). Resolve the pay dispute now Ted Baillieu and stop our kids from missing out. Anna Aughterson / Kew East ■ LET’S BE FRANK Julie Aclin (‘‘Frankly speaking’’, RL, March 6) obviously is rarely in the shopping strip otherwise she would be aware the GP is open six days a week and the hairdresser is open five days. Perhaps that is why she never sees any parking problems – because she is never there. The parking problems are caused by inconsiderate drivers turning into the angled parking bays from the other side of the road and not straightening up, thus taking up two bays. They are not all customers of Miss Frank; however the availability of

parking has worsened considerably since Miss Frank opened. Parking inspectors should fine the illegally parked cars and perhaps by hitting them in the hip pocket these selfish drivers may become more considerate of others. To misquote Rhett Butler: “Frankly they don’t give a damn”. Bruce Hutton / Surrey Hills

■ PROTECT HERITAGE Boroondara is a beautiful leafy area of Melbourne made even more magnificent by the heritage and oldworld feel you get when travelling around. We all understand the need for progress, but we also need to realise that once our heritage is gone, we can not recreate it. Unfortunately, people make decisions based on financial gain, and sometimes that gain can be a detriment to the heritage of our area.

homes. Wonderful ornate buildings are being bulldozed and lost to make way for modern multi-storey structures in the name of progress. With no boundaries we could have buildings of various heights just popping up anywhere. No boundaries equals a free-for-all where anyone can do as they like, which will destroy the culture, ambience and heritage of the area. People who buy property in Boroondara know they are buying in an established area which is rich in history. If we keep it that way our history remains. It is sensible to impose height restrictions and keep increasing our heritage overlay in Boorondara before we lose our heritage. Everybody has different tastes, so what may be beautiful to you may be ugly to me, but if it has significance it should remain. With an overlay in place, new buyers would know prior to purchasing if they can demolish or have to renovate instead. Lorene Roberts / via email

BOROONDARA REVIEW LOCAL 9

A decade on the market PHOTOGRAPHS BY STEVE LIGHTFOOT

It started a revolution for foodies, and this weekend the Boroondara Farmers Market turns 10. By LISA HIGGINSON

T

he clock has just struck 8am and sunshine is already beating down on Hawthorn’s Patterson Reserve. Swarms of early risers begin to emerge from surrounding footpaths and car parks armed with shopping trolleys, baskets and bags. As they descend on the entrance, the anticipation is palpable. It’s Saturday morning at the Boroondara Farmers Market, which has been a monthly highlight for the local community for the past 10 years. When it began in 2003, Boroondara’s was one of only two farmers’ markets in metropolitan Melbourne, along with the Collingwood Children’s Farm market. There are now around 70 produce and farmers’ markets around the state. Run by the Rotary Club of Glenferrie in partnership with the council, the Boroondara 10 BOROONDARA REVIEW LOCAL

Market was established as a nonprofit fund-raising venture. The first market on March 15, 2003 showcased 45 stallholders and attracted 1779 patrons, each of whom donated $2 to enter. Ten years and 125 market days later, $700,000 has been raised for local causes. In 2003, the pastime of perusing produce-laden trestle tables and actually meeting the people who grew your food was relatively novel to most Victorians. While farmers’ markets have since flourished in most corners of Melbourne, Boroondara’s is still considered a pioneer of the increasingly popular movement. ‘‘We set out to be a traditional farmers’ market right from the outset,” explains market coordinator and Rotary member John Hudson. ‘‘The emphasis had to be on home-grown or

MARCH 13, 2013

home-made produce sold by the producer. Even the farmer from up the road could not come and sell another farmer’s produce.’’ The market, which is held on the third and fifth Saturdays of each month, continues to attract more than 1700 customers, with a record 2648 through the gates in February 2012. There are now around 80 stallholders on the books and a further 100 waiting for a spot. Hudson says stall numbers are capped to ensure custom is not spread too thinly. The market has a loyal local following and it is easy to see why. Farmers wax lyrical about their produce with a passion that just makes you want to put your hand in your pocket and support them. They regale customers with tales of where a joint of beef began life and joke about the feisty goats that produced the milk for

that slice of silky cheese. It’s a world away from sterile, fluoro-lit supermarket aisles, and the people of Boroondara know it. Margaret Medhurst of Malvern East and her daughter, Lara O’Donnell of Ashburton, are regulars. Medhurst has been shopping here for the past decade, and says the seasonal produce is always a stand-out. ‘‘It’s good to support the producers instead of the supermarkets; I would much rather support them.” Boroondara had its market up and running for three years before the Victorian Farmers’ Markets Association (VFMA) accreditation scheme was formed with the aim of promoting and sustaining authentic farmers’ markets. And the market has been accredited since 2010. ‘‘It means that 90 per cent of our stallholders must be accredited as genuine producers

and then we can have a few nonaccredited stalls such as a coffee stand,’’ explains Hudson. The market has an outstanding reputation, which is perhaps why many of its traders are longstanding. Tom and Julie Mathieson of VBK Foods have been selling their gluten-free vegetable burgers at Patterson Reserve for nine years. ‘‘There are really dedicated customers here that keep coming back,” says Tom. Karin Kuusk, who runs Sisely Estate handcrafted wines with husband John Sisely, has been travelling from the Yarra Valley to sell preservative-free wine at the market for four years. ‘‘We were the first wine producers to be accepted to the market in many years,’’ Kuusk says. ‘‘We are unique as we grow the grapes on our four acres of land and the whole

$350,000 over the past decade. Foundation Boroondara is a community philanthropic organisation that assists low income families and seeks funding for social inclusion projects. For Rotary, Hudson says funds raised at the market have enabled the club to make considerable contributions to the community

through organisations such as the Boroondara Family Network, which looks after local young mothers who don’t have a support network or are suffering post-natal depression. While most of the funds raised through the market go back into the local community, the Rotary Club’s work also extends beyond

Boroondara, providing assistance to fire and flood affected areas in regional Victoria, and as far away as the Sumba Eye Program in Indonesia, led by Rotary member and eye specialist Dr Mark Ellis. As the market enters its second decade, Hudson says Rotary is determined to ensure it keeps going strong. ‘‘The market

has been good for us and the community and it works really well. Looking ahead, we would like to get even more people through the gates.” Boroondara Farmers Market will celebrate its 10th anniversary on Saturday, March 16, with entertainment and raffles alongside the usual market.

T

echnology has become a way for teachers and students to make religious education more relatable in a fast-paced world filled with instant updates and immersive virtual interaction. Tablets, apps such as Glo Bible, notebook laptops and e-book Bibles have become commonplace in many classrooms around Australia, with apps and podcasts making faith a current topic without losing its historical roots. For the past three years at Xaiver College, year 9 students have completed a podcast tour, of St Patrick’s Cathedral in East Melbourne, which they created themselves. “It has been a big success,” says Bernadette Mercieca, Xavier College’s religious education teacher and year 9 RE co-ordinator. “They can work at their own pace and aren’t dependent on the teacher or have to stay in a group. Instead, they can revisit an area they really like at any time.” This type of independence has also helped the college’s year 12 religion and society class make use of social learning

platform Edmodo to respond to teachers’ comments, and complete Quizlet quizzes on key vocabulary and concepts. “They find it a fun way to learn, especially the kids who would not enjoy writing it down in a book. They get to learn it through a game context.” A group called Games for Change also educates students about social and world issues, and religion.“They have roleplaying games and last year they took on the role of a reporter for ways to learn about refugees, and they felt they learnt much more from that than from a movie,” says Mercieca. These types of personal stories, told via the internet, have changed the way students view topics, says Sacre Couer mission director Mark Oski.“The internet has personal stories and that can humanise an issue and you can use technology to bring a story to life.” Furthering this is the idea of “global classrooms” and encouraging students and teachers to be knowledgeable of varying

IN TOUCH: Students at Sacre Couer use iPads in the classroom faiths and opinions from online sources, and use that for critical analyis and reflection that will continue in the future. “We have the idea of wise freedom as part of our Sacred Heart teachings, so we have to educate the students about how to

use the technology using the ‘wise freedom’ in an informed way,” Oski says.“As you can imagine in areas of religious education and faith, there is a lot of diversity and the legitimacy of these recourses is something they can learn to be critical of.”

and weddings in the Balkans are in essence, not as different as they are in other parts of the world.” The party began for Bregovic when he was a teenager living in Naples, Italy. Singing and playing the guitar at communist strip clubs, the musician learnt early how to entertain and captivate a crowd. “In communist times striptease bars were not only places where you watched naked women, but were also cult places where one could have the impression of an escapade from life,” says Bregovic. “My only enjoyment was to know how to play music to which women take off their clothes, and GORAN BREGOVIC even the idea Where: Hamer Hall that at 17 I had When: 8pm, March 19 and 20 seen more naked Price: $79 adult, $69 concession, women than $55 youth all my peers in Details: call 1300 182 183 or visit Yugoslavia put artscentremelbourne.com.au together, seemed very cool to me.” After a brief stint at university studying philosophy, Bregovic’s

losing the 2008 Melbourne Festival, Balkan rock superstar Goran Bregovic inspired an enthusiastic reaction. Ditching the usual formalities associated with the Arts Centre, the audience filled the aisles, dancing, stamping their feet and clapping. Bregovic returns to Melbourne next week with his 19-piece band Weddings and Funerals Orchestra. Drawing from a rich history – from the Balkan musical customs of his home region, to the experiences he has had further afield – the concert will offer gypsy rock and tango, brassy folk songs and European classicism. “Where I come from weddings and funerals are still the two most important events in one’s life,” says Bregovic.“The music that accompanies them is played by the same musicians. After the funeral everyone goes to the house of the deceased to eat and drink for his soul, and it’s a custom that the departed should have the music he liked in his lifetime. So funerals

life changed when he heard Eric Clapton’s band Cream.The introduction to 70s pop music, inspired him to create Bijelo Dugme (White Button), one of Yugoslavia’s biggest and most influential rock bands. “[There were] concerts of 100,000 people, each record sold out. With that kind of success and the girls that go with it, it was not easy to concentrate on Marx and Plato,” he says. Internationally Bregovic is best known for his work on the score of Underground – fellow Sarajevan Emir Kusturica’s documentary about the history of the former Yugoslavia. “It’s good that the world has become curious and has interest in a musical culture that is very small in comparison to the great ones of Spain, Italy, Germany.” Despite turning 63 next week, Bregovic still retains much of the spirit that defines him. Staying true to his reputation, Bregovic’s aim for his Melbourne shows is to have everyone up and dancing. Heels should be avoided. FRANCESCA CARTER fcarter@mmpgroup.com.au

ew restaurateur Joe Vargetto has a creative mind, but when he decided to strip his establishment of furniture and fill it with sand for a night, some people feared he’d lost his mind.They were wrong.

Kim Tng and John Reid study the label of their latest glass, expertly held aloft by Chris Jinli. Paul Morris, Anna Minton, Josefina Maglietti, Matias Cavanna and Bill Clarke make a quirky quintet of quaffers.

THE AGE

Steven Salopek brings new blood to Old Boys BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au

ST KEVIN’S Old Boys Football Club has landed one of the biggest signings of 2013, ahead of what is shaping up to be a crucial year for the club. Former Port Adelaide midfielder Steven Salopek joins St Kevin’s after 10 years at the Power, and he’s looking forward to the challenge of amateur football. ‘‘It’s a bit of a change, getting used to working and then training at night, but I’m feeling good and hopefully I can add some value to the team,’’ Salopek says. Salopek, 27, debuted for Port Adelaide in 2003 and played 121 games for the Power, including the 2007 grand final against Geelong. A former first-round draft pick (#6 in 2002), Salopek’s final two years at Port Adelaide were dogged by injury, and when his AFL chances dried up he decided it was time to return to his native Victoria for the

next phase of his life. ‘‘Obviously staying in the AFL was my priority, but when that didn’t eventuate I looked at VFL and then the amateurs,’’ Salopek says. ‘‘With a young family and a new career move it was important I had some flexibility and time, so that meant the amateurs was where I headed.’’ Salopek’s new career is in real estate in Oakleigh.The chance to play at St Kevin’s with his younger brother Jason as the club aims to break in the VAFA’s top division has him equally excited. ‘‘I’ve never played with him before, because he’s eight years younger, so hopefully we get to spend a bit of time out on the park together,’’ Salopek says. ‘‘It’s a pretty solid young group, and they’ve come close to success in recent years so hopefully we can push up into finals and get the ultimate prize.’’ After a long time in the AFL Salopek says he has much to be proud of, but concedes he didn’t think last

year was the end. ‘‘To play over 100 games, get your name on the locker, life membership of the club, those are things I’ll look back on proudly,’’ he says. ‘‘I thought I still had something to offer at the end of last year, but I guess everything happens for a reason and there’s no point whinging and complaining. ‘‘I still keep in touch with my mates over in Adelaide, and I hope success isn’t far away for them, but I’m ready for the next phase of my life and really enjoying the challenges.’’

Boroondara buckles under Falcons final quarter pressure BOROONDARA Genesis continued its slow start to the Victorian Netball League Championship season, giving up a strong lead in the final quarter to lose to City West Falcons. After sticking with one of the competition benchmarks for the first half, Genesis opened up a four goal lead early in the last quarter, before some defensive lapses saw them end the night down 40-36. The night started well at the State Netball Hockey Centre, with Gen-

esis recruit Ashlee Howard on song from the start and getting Boroondara into the game early. With a win crucial, Boroondara was able to keep the scores level at each of the first two breaks, before a fantastic third quarter saw them break the game open. The Genesis defense tightened up on the powerful Falcons shooters, while Howard was seemingly able to score from anywhere in the circle. Taking a three goal lead into the

final quarter, Boroondara stretched its advantage out to four before things started to go wrong. Some defensive lapses from the young Boroondara team let the Falcons back into the contest, and they took full toll with a flurry of quick, unanswered goals. At one stage they slammed on four goals without reply from the Genesis, and with that, the game was all but done. Boroondara coach Nicole Keegan

tried to arrest the slide with a timeout late in the quarter, but despite some positional changes it was to no avail. City West took the four points and moved to third on the table. The four-goal loss was probably a fair reflection of the difference between the two sides, with the Falcons fielding a very settled line-up, and the Genesis still experimenting with a new-look team this season. Keegan said her team would have

to learn quickly if it was to bounce back from back-to-back losses. “We have to be able to hold it together at the end under pressure situations and finish the game,” Keegan said. “There was just some decisions under the pressure late which cost us as people got tired. ‘‘At championship level you just can’t get tired, so we’ll have to get better from there.” EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au

Lions chase down finals berth

BRIEFS ARI HATZIS

BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au

CAMBERWELL’S premier first XI season is done and dusted after a loss to Fitzroy Doncaster at the weekend. After giving the Lions 226 to chase last weekend, the Magpies could only manage three wickets as the Lions chased down the target and booked their spot in this year’s finals. Fitzroy Doncaster finished the day on 3/227. Starting the day on 0/5, the Lions were able to build the strong opening partnership they needed as they moved to 52, before the introduction of James Pearson brought about the first breakthrough. Scott Huntley (9) was trapped in front, but it was Matthew Bremner who continued to do most of the damage. After a hot week, which led to a f lat pitch and a fast outfield, Bremner made the most of the early pace to keep the scoreboard ticking at a steady rate. In partnership with Tim Sheehan, Bremner was able to take control of the game and all but ensure the points for the visitors, as they punished the bad balls and slowly ticked off the runs. The pair put on 107 for the second wicket, with Bremner eventually caught behind off the spin of Tom Russ for 73. Rising star Will Walker sent Sheehan (73) back to the sheds soon after to give the home side a faint glimmer of hope, with the Lions slipping to 3/169. But the ever reliable Fitzroy Doncaster skipper Lloyd Mash (27) teamed up with Peter Dickson (34) to safely guide his team to the target in the 65th over.

■ HAVE A HIT North Balwyn Baseball Club will host two Come & Try days for new players aged 7-18 in the lead up to the season. The club will be open on March 16 and 23 from 10am to noon. Details: www.nor thbalwyn.base ball.com.au. ■ MEDAL HAT-TRICK Balwyn Cricket Club’s 2nd XI captain Michael Letcher has taken out the club’s Bud Walder Medal for the 2012-13 season. Awarded to the best performed player across the club’s four senior sides, the medal is Letcher’s third win in four seasons. He finished one vote ahead of first XI all-rounder Nick Hailey. ■ MAGIC HAS NUMBERS Nine Hawthorn Magic teams have qualified for the Victorian Championships, the highest level of junior basketball in the state. Hawthorn qualified a team from every age group except under 18 girls. ■ FRANJIC SIGNS ON Richmond Soccer Club has signed former Melbourne Victory player Petar Franjic for the 2013 season. Franjic, 20, played 31 games for the Victory and has previously represented Australia at under 17 and under 20 level.

NOT THIS ONE: Fitzroy Lions’ Tim Sheehan lets a bowl by James Pearson go through Camberwell captain Simon Hill said he was proud of his bowlers efforts in the searing heat, but they simply didn’t have enough runs to defend. “They toiled away manfully, I was very impressed with some of the spells from the quicker blokes,” Hill said.

“But the Lions batted pretty well. They were patient and waited for the bad balls, and we just didn’t put up a big enough total last week.’’ The loss puts an end to Camberwell’s first XI season, but Hill could see the silver lining from a disappointing season. “We made the finals last year so

we’ve probably taken a little bit of a step back this year, but we definitely think we can develop into a first XI finals team,” Hill said. “It’s been a season where we’ve managed to get some games into some younger guys, and we’re looking to improve. Hopefully next year we’ll probably do better.”

■ WESTON LEADS Boroondara Genesis defender Jo Weston has been named vicecaptain of the Victorian under 21 netball team for 2013. It continues Weston’s string of accolades. She travelled with the squad to the Caribbean in December for a training tour, and won an AIS scholarship in 2012.
