New day: Abeselom Nega has called for a community strategy involving police and African youth.

‘We need an open, honest and transparent discussion between the African community and police’ ‘‘There is a need to educate not only African youth but all youth in the west – whatever race they may be – on their rights and responsibilities,’’ she said. ‘‘The only way stereotypes of races can be broken is through education and understanding.’’ The accord reached between police and the six men comes five years after an initial complaint to the Australian Human Rights Commission.

Speaking to the media after the settlement announcement, Chief Commissioner Ken Lay said he did not accept that racial profiling was taking place, but he admitted that relations between some police and young African men had been ‘‘quite problematic’’. ‘‘I am pleased that this litigation has now concluded. Hopefully, it will find us in a far better place with our multicultural community. Hopefully, the work we will undertake will help us become better and better and help us prevent long-running processes like we’ve just had to go through.’’

AFRICAN leaders in Brimbank have welcomed the settlement of a drawn-out racial discrimination case between a group of young African-Australian men in the western suburbs and Victoria Police. The case stemmed from allegations the young men were regularly stopped by police, mostly in Flemington and North Melbourne, for no legitimate reason. The men claimed they were subjected to racial discrimination, including assaults, racial taunts and abuse, and racial profiling. The case was settled at the Federal Court last Monday. The claims of harassment date back as far as 2006. As part of the settlement, Victoria Police agreed to an inquiry to examine its own policies on stop-andsearch and person checks and its cross-cultural training system. Braybrook African community leader Abeselom Nega said it was a win for youth in Brimbank and the west who had long felt marginalised by police. He said the release of statistics last year, showing Sudanese and Somali-born Victorians were five times more likely to commit a crime, had only worsened relations with police. ‘‘There is no trust between African youth and the police so this is a very encouraging first step that Victoria Police are embarking on,’’ he said. ‘‘But I think there also has to be a community strategy between local police and African youth in the west that is meaningful for the community. We need an open, honest and transparent discussion between the African community and police.’’ Mr Nega, who works with African teens through his youth education group iEmpower, estimates there are more than 7000 Africans living in Brimbank. ‘‘Many of the young Africans I encounter in the community are fed up by the treatment they receive from the police. They feel they are targeted because of the colour of their skin,’’ he said. ‘‘This is a time when the community has questions and they will be demanding answers from police so we can all move forward.’’ Victoria University lecturer Elleni Bereded-Samuel applauded the courage of the young men.

INBRIEF Misplaced intentions Two St Albans teens have been charged after trying to rob a cyclist in front of police. Brimbank investigators were conducting an operation in Sunshine’s CBD when the incident occurred at the intersection of Hampshire Road and McDonald Lane about 11.30pm last Tuesday. The youths, 17 and 14, were charged with robbery and assault.

Lights ‘run’, woman hurt A St Albans woman was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries after the driver of a Nissan sedan ran a red light at the intersection of Kings Way and Queens Road last Thursday morning. The woman, 21, who was alone in her car, was in a stable condition on Friday. Police said the male driver returned a positive preliminary breath test and was driving on a suspended licence. He will be charged on summons.

Man on murder count Detectives have charged a Fitzroy man following the disappearance of a St Albans man in January. The man, 28, was arrested in Alma Street, Fitzroy, about 8am last Thursday. He was charged with one count of murder and will face Melbourne Magistrates’ Court at a later date. The charges relate to the alleged death of a St Albans man, 35, at an address on Minter Road, Johnsonville on January 6. The victim’s body has not been located.

BY HELEN GRIMAUX SUPPORT for Muslim communities was overshadowed last week by ugly images of bloodied protesters and mounted police outside an anti-Islam meeting organised by the western suburbs-based Q Society. The event in Somerton was part of a speaking tour featuring controversial Dutch MP Geert Wilders, who described Islam as ‘‘not a religion’’ but a dangerous and totalitarian ideology. Sunshine Mosque president Mustafa Ramadan said the Brimbank Muslim community condemned the actions of those involved. ‘‘Our faith teaches us to be extremely patient and tolerant of others and their faiths and to live in peace and harmony within our community,’’ he said. ‘‘We live in a place of multicultural people and for people to tear apart a religion they have no idea about is extremely hurtful.’’ Mr Ramadan said the 10,031 Muslims living in Brimbank had been shaken by the events. ‘‘We have never encountered any type of racial prejudice from people living in Brimbank,’’ he said. ‘‘We in turn accept people for who they are. We practise our faith in our community, but we would never try to force it down people’s throats or judge anybody else on the faith they choose for themselves.’’ Mr Ramadan’s response was echoed by the Faith Communities Council of Victoria (FCCV), which said: ‘‘We join the Australian Muslim leadership and imams in standing against violence. The faiths and communities we represent do not accept violence in any form, for any reason, or in any setting. ‘‘We are proud to live in a multifaith and multicultural society in

Prompt rebuttal IN its pre-publicity for Geert Wilders’ visit, the Q Society said the ‘‘Australian experiment’’ of multiculturalism was failing in relation to Islam. ‘‘Australians are being misled to believe Islam is just another religion, when it is in fact much more.’’ This position is at odds with the state government’s own advice: ‘‘We believe Victoria’s strong multicultural policies and programs are working well to diffuse tensions and forge solutions in response to those, from any background, who would seek to undermine the peace and harmony of our community,’’ a communique said.

Gold then fruit ’n’ veg . . . and now?

End of an era: Keilor farmers David and John Milburn.

KEILOR will celebrate 150 years of local government next week, although its founding goes back several decades before the declaration of a roads board. The area was named in 1840 and was gazetted as a village on January 16, 1850. Gold was discovered in 1851 and a constant stream of diggers travelled the route now known as the Calder Highway to Castlemaine and Bendigo goldfields. Needing food and water, they would set up camp overnight at Horseshoe Bend. By then orchards had already been planted on the river flats and vegetable plots marked out the market gardens that have patchworked the Keilor Valley in seasonal colours until just this past year. In 1857, pioneering farmer David Milburn developed the first irrigation system in Victoria to water his Arundel Road orchard and market garden. ‘‘Davey the basket-man’’, as he was known, sold fruit, vegetables and butter from the roadside to goldseeking travellers. Milburn came from Yorkshire,

He called on the state government to immediately restore $616 million it will cut from health funding over the next four years, including $37 million at the Western Hospital. A war of words between the state and federal governments erupted last week, with Premier Ted

Baillieu criticising the reinstatement as an interim measure to fix cuts that never should have happened. Western Metropolitan Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury said the federal government needed to commit to reversing a further $368 million in cuts slated for June 30. ‘‘The federal Labor government needs to end the uncertainty for hospital staff and patients and commit to reinstating all the money that was promised to the Victorian health system by the Gillard government.’’ Prime Minister Julia Gillard said patients had been adversely affected by the state government’s funding cuts.

SOME political power has moved to the west after Keilor state MP Natalie Hutchins was appointed to the shadow ministry. Ms Hutchins was named opposition spokeswoman for ports, freight and logistics and industrial relations last Tuesday following a rift in the ALP right which delayed a vote to elect a new MP to the front bench. She will replace Tarneit MP Tim Pallas, who was last week named shadow treasurer. Mr Pallas takes over from Tim Holding, who resigned from politics on February 14. Ms Hutchins told the Weekly her focus would be on improving employment and job security. ‘‘There are too many jobs being sent overseas, too many families having their working hours cut back, and I will be working to

take action to keep jobs in Victoria.’’ Ms Hutchins said her role would be particularly important in Brimbank, which has the highest unemployment rate in the west. ‘‘The west will remain a priority with unemployment and youth unemployment off the Richter scale,’’ she said. ‘‘There absolutely needs to be more opportunities given to disadvantaged youth in career pathways.’’ Opposition leader Daniel Andrews said Ms Hutchins was selected against other candidates, including Williamstown MP Wade Noonan, because of her strong background in small business and dedication to hardworking families. ‘‘She is a passionate advocate for the western suburbs of Melbourne and knows the impact unemployment has on individuals and their families,’’ he said. Ms Hutchins’ appointment brings the number of women on the opposition front bench to nine.

CALDER Freeway motorists can no longer turn right into Calder Park Drive near the raceway. The right-turn lane from the freeway into Calder Park Drive was permanently closed last Thursday, with motorists advised to use the Kings Road interchange to head west. The left turn lane in and out of Calder Park Drive will remain open. A new U-turn option for drivers wanting to head towards Melbourne has been introduced opposite Organ Pipes Road. And a new acceleration lane designed for safer traffic mergers opened late last week. A VicRoads spokesman said these changes would reduce the number of right-turn crashes at Organ Pipes Road and Calder Park Drive, significantly improving safety along this section of the freeway. — Helen Grimaux

Workers win flexible roster BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM THREE Brimbank Council workers have won the right to flexible working arrangements. The administration workers argued they were entitled to a flexible fortnightly roster, with no loss of overall hours worked. The Fair Work Commission case had been running for more than a year. Employment law specialist Enrico Burgio, of Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, representing the group, said the outcome could improve workers’ productivity by arranging a better work and life balance. Employees will work the same number of hours for nine days over a fortnightly period. ‘‘Brimbank Council’s own human resources manager conceded that the employees are likely to get through the same number of tasks under the new

arrangement, so it was odd that the council sought to oppose a win-win situation,’’ he said. ‘‘This case demonstrates the importance of seeking clauses in enterprise agreements that deal with employees’ rights.’’ Brimbank’s acting manager of people and culture Bev Butler said the council accepted the decision and had no objection to job-sharing and flexible working hours, as long as the role could be performed under those arrangements. ‘‘Flexible work arrangements are clearly set out in the enterprise agreement and include the offer of purchased leave whereby employees can elect to work four years at 80 per cent of their salary, followed by one year off.’’ Australian Service Union branch secretary Brian Parkinson said the members in question had been waiting for more than a year for this decision.

It’s a great social events for students — one of those things that’s quite contagious. Children want to take part because their friends are so they can enjoy the day with their peers.’’ More than 140,000 students across Victoria are expected to take part.

ISIS childcare handover hitch BY HELEN GRIMAUX THE return to the council of Brimbank’s maternal and child health services has not gone without a hitch. Last week, council advised there would be a temporary disruption to services as a result of the management handover from ISIS Primary Care, which was foreshadowed late last year. ISIS director of community support services, Michael Girolami, said the current agreement expired on Wednesday,March 6. He said all services would operate as normal until then. But in a statement released last week, council stated: ‘‘The management changeover will require a short disruption to services.’’ Mr Girolami said ISIS had been working closely with council in the months since its contract termination was announced to ensure a seamless

handover, and all 30 maternal and child health service staff would retain their positions. He said Brimbank had been one of the only councils that still contracted its maternal and child health services to an outside provider. Mr Girolami suggested training for a new computer system could be the reason for the flagged disruptions to service delivery. ‘‘There is a different computer system tailored to maternal and child health services, which some staff have worked with in other municipalities,’’ he said. ‘‘This could be causing a few teething problems.’’ Council was unable to provide exact reasons for the scheduled disruption. A media briefing was scheduled for yesterday. For web updates, go to brimbank weekly.com.au

Bite on Spring Street to fix clinic HOPES for the future of dental care in the west hinge on the state government’s May budget, according to the Western Region Health Centre. A taskforce investigating the long-troubled dental clinic, chaired by western suburbs MP Andrew Elsbury, last year reported vermin, termites, electrical hazards and rusty chairs were just some of the challenges putting the service at risk. The taskforce identified seven options to improve infrastructure and services, including a $9 million option to join adult and child dental services — now split over two sites — to one redeveloped 12-chair dental clinic on the site in Paisley Street, Footscray. WRHC is the largest provider of public emergency and general dental care in Melbourne’s west. Deputy CEO Nicole Bartholomeusz told the Weekly the government was fully briefed and aware of the dire situation of the centre’s dental facilities and of the urgent need for new facilities to ensure the health and well-being of residents.

In the spotlight: Nicole Bartholomeusz reflects on the clinic’s future. “The age of our dental buildings, built in the 1960s, and equipment limits the range and type of services we can deliver, and it places uncertainty around how long we can continue to deliver vital dental services to the community,” she said.

Council, in conjunction with Business Victoria will be conducting a series of business training and development events over the next 12 months. The first four of these events are listed below. The aim of these events is to provide access to training that will support and grow businesses within Brimbank. These events are part of Council’s commitment to providing support to local business by providing training, networking and information.

The council voted to nominate a subcommittee to hear a submission from the Brooklyn Residents Action Group (BRAG), which is calling for the whole block to be turned into a 15-metre walkway.

The tale of a student’s efforts to expose his school’s hypocrisy will be brought to the stage in March by St Albans producer Rikki-Lee Butinar (pictured). The Joy of Text, set in a modern high school, traces the story of Danny, a bright but awkward kid genius. When a controversial book falls into his hands, he plots to expose the school system’s hypocrisy by emulating its scenario – an inappropriate teacher/student relationship. Butinar says actors Colin Craig, Jason Cavanagh, Kasia Kaczmarek and Elizabeth Thomson make the most of writer Robert Reid’s fast-paced and witty dialogue. “While on the surface the narrative is a simple scenario of how a student’s revenge against a teacher causes controversy within the system, The Joy of Text ultimately delves deeper, examining bigger questions of morality and truth in language.’’ Filmmaker Isaac Mitchell-Frey designed the production’s filmscape, Rob Sowinski did set and lighting, while Kiernan Box, a keyboardist with Augie March and The Blackeyed Susans, handled sound design. The Joy of Textis the first production for RePlay Theatre, which is dedicated to new performances of past Australian plays.

2012-13 budget and proceed to develop 31 Cypress Avenue as a large open space area linking the two Brooklyn communities,’’ he said. ‘‘Through a request from BRAG in 2011, on behalf of all Brooklyn residents [former] councillor [Michael] Raffoul requested that Hobsons Bay Council allocate $550,000 in its 2011-12 capital budget to buy a property to allow for opening up the two sides of Brooklyn.’’ Mr Boere said selling the property would leave a four-metre easement for the community with the remaining land sold for housing development. ‘‘This is a totally unsatisfactory outcome for the Brooklyn community and is not what was envisaged, nor is it what the funding was originally allocated for.’’

Hepatitis drug breakthrough BY LAURA LITTLE HEPATITIS C patients will have better access to treatments after the approval of two new drugs for the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. The federal government announced last Tuesday that telaprevir and boceprevir would be placed on the PBS after months of lobbying by health workers. As reported by the Weekly, the new drugs have been found to reduce treatment times and increase cure rates. Dr Alex Thompson, head of hepatology research at St Vincents Hospital, which runs a hepatitis clinic at Werribee, said telaprevir and boceprevir were raising cure rates from 40 per cent to 80 per cent for chronic hepatitis C. Hepatitis Victoria chief executive Melanie Eagle, who chaired a western suburbs roundtable discussion earlier

this month, said telaprevir and boceprevir would have ‘‘real life impacts’’ on patients. The organisation says infection rates are on the rise in the western suburbs, as is the number of patients needing treatment. Maribyrnong has the third-highest rate of hepatitis infections in metropolitan Melbourne, followed by Brimbank. Wyndham, Hume and Melton have been found to have large populations of at-risks groups. Ms Eagle said the drugs would offer patients hope. ‘‘They are a more successful and less intrusive form of treatment. We’re urging people with hepatitis to make an appointment with their doctor and discuss these new treatments now.’’ Prime Minister and Lalor MP Julia Gillard said that by listing the drugs on the PBS, the federal government was preventing people with hepatitis C from paying up to $78,000 a year for treatment.

Our folk were migrants once, too LLOYD Williams has always had a desire to help those in need. The Essendon father of four, 59, has spent his career working as a special-needs teacher in the west and, for the past six months, as a volunteer mentor with the Helping Hand Project. The community-based organisation aims to provide young refugees with supportive mentors to help them realise their dreams. As a mentor to Burmese brothers Van Baw Lian, 15, and Van Lian Hu, 13, Mr Williams visits the family home once a week to help them with their schoolwork and teach them about popular Australian sports in a nearby park. The brothers moved to Braybrook with their grandparents 18 months ago after being separated from their family and living in a refugee camp in India for almost six years. They were only reunited with their mother in Australia last week. Van Baw Lian says he and his brother would not have settled in without the help of their mentor. ‘‘We like Mr Lloyd, he’s very nice

COVERSTORY

Back to his roots Vasili Kanidiadis is one of community television’s greatest success stories. The passionate gardener took some rare time out to speak with Eugene Benson about his return to where it all began

G

ardening was always going to rule Vasili Kanidiadis’s life — it’s in his blood. His early exposure to backyard vegie growing left a lasting impression and despite stints in engineering and even classical piano, it is the simple beauty of home grown produce where his passion lies. Kanidiadis is something of a household name these days thanks to his cult television show Vasili’s Garden, which started broadcasting on Channel 31 in 2003 and later moved to SBS in 2007. At its height, the show was attracting more than 400,000 viewers a week, almost unheard of for such a low budget show on a community station. The show will return to it roots on Channel 31, (broadcast on Digital Channel 44) on March 6. Flamboyant, cheerful and with a piano accordion in-tow, the basic formula for Vasili’s Garden has been for Kanidiadis and his camera crew to visit mostly migrant families across Australia and tell the story behind the establishment and success of their vegie garden. The aim is to celebrate home-grown food and show how even the smallest backyard, patio or side gardem can be used to grow fresh, healthy produce. By the show’s conclusion the crew and garden owners usually wind up eating and drinking the produce grown in the garden and Kanidiadis provides the entertainment with his beloved piano accordion. Before you know it cast, crew and gardener’s are arm in arm dancing to Zorba as the credits roll. Kanidiadis reckon’s it’s all pretty basic and a lot of fun. ‘‘It’s about simple people who love to garden, and yes many are migrants with little formal education, but the wealth of knowledge they possess in practical gardening is far greater than any school education can ever offer you. ‘‘This knowledge has been handed down to them

[ 12 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

February 26, 2013

from past generations, from their parents and grandparents who in their time had to garden to survive with simple methods, using simple equipment and in the end achieving a very healthy and sustainable lifestyle.’’ Exceedingly proud of his own migrant heritage, Kanidiadis believes the show has also struck a chord because it play’s an important role at keeping traditions alive. ‘‘A lot of people of my generation actually didn’t stay in touch with the traditional practices, they got on with the new life in Australia,’’ he says. ‘‘But now there is a bit of a resurgence in some younger people, that next generation. So many people we feature on the show are that generation older than me, so I think it’s important to keep these methods and traditions alive.’’

The son of Greek migrants, Kanidiadis was born in Coburg but moved to Keilor Park at the age of 6. After not truly embracing a career in engineering, in 1993 he opened a plant and garden store back in his old stomping ground of Coburg. Word soon spread about ‘the Greek guy with all the great fruit and vege advice’, and Kanidiadis was approached by a friend who worked at 3XY multicultural radio to participate in a talkback gardening show. The show proved a huge success and profitable for the station. It was on the back of the radio show’s high ratings Kanidiadis was invited to try his luck on television. Still somewhat surprised at his rise to fame, he believes much of his show builds on the adventures he had with his father as a child. ‘‘My earliest memories of gardening were at the age of six or seven,’’ he recalls. ‘‘Each day my father would pick me up from school and drive past our old property in Coburg where we used to live. He had the house demolished and had it turned into a huge vegetable garden.

‘‘Every day we would go there and harvest the freshly ripe produce. My dad would always have a couple of village style bread rolls with him and some feta cheese, we would break open the bread and fill it with a bit of everything picked from the garden then go and sit under the old lemon tree to enjoy the afternoon feast.’’ As well as moving to SBS in 2007, Kanidiadis has appeared on the ABC and had a couple of spots on Channel 10, a newspaper column and still has a weekly spot on 3AW and SBS radio. His new series promises to stick to the old formula, albeit with some new additions. ‘‘It will have a whole new line up of guests and new presenters,’’ Kanidiadis says. ‘‘The show is being grown out to one hour of gardening and cooking tips and advice, along with crazy guests.’’ Kanidiadis says it’s the people of Melbourne, and of course the people from all parts of Australia, who continue to inspire him. ‘‘Most importantly it’s the migrant generation, our parents, grandparents, friends and neighbours who grew up gardening purely to survive. It’s their stories and gardening and cooking secrets that I want to explore and share.’’ It’s not lost on Kanidiadis that while it might be in vogue for inner suburban trendies to be get involved in community gardens or start their own herb patch, many migrant families have been doing just that without the fuss for generations. ‘‘It’s a way of life that more and more people of today are turning to, and yes we are proud to say that Vasili’s Garden has been a strong influence towards this healthy change. As my father and grandfather would say, ‘It’s about growing it yourself’, knowing where it grew and how it was grown, with nothing short of tender loving care given to every seed germinated, every plant propegated and every tree grafted.’’I Kanidiadis’s new show screens on March 6 at 7.30pm on Digital 44


OLD AND NEW FACES While there are too many to mention, Vasili Kanidiadis believe’s some of the characters and odd but effective gardening techniques he has come across filming the show will stay with him for life. There is John the singing gardener in Thomastown, who has a ridiculous amount of water storage containers through his garden, and Effie of Glenroy who feeds her plants aspirin and always has a bumper crop even through winter. Another favourite is Cosimo of Coburg, the meticulously organised and fastidiously clean gardener who grows some of the best and biggest vegies in town. In the show’s new incarnation Kanidiadis will be joined by a horticulturist called Jason who will share seasonal gardening tips on flowering and productive plants, advice on propagating, seed harvesting, repotting and plant protection. He’ll be joined by energetic teenager Eleni, who will share her passion for fresh produce and their health benefits; Lisa, an elite athlete will discuss the basics of keeping fit and avoiding injuries while gardening. SBS identity Mamma Eleni will demonstrate traditional cooking methods and secret recipes, while new mum Jana will show natural methods and simple remedies to look after new borns and toddlers.

Scuttling those dam proposals PRIME Ministerial hopeful Tony Abbott may want Australians to ‘‘get over their dam phobia’’, but reviving the idea of flooding the Keilor Valley near Tullamarine has a few locals believing time is definitely taking a backwards slide. The Opposition Leader said there had been too few dams built in recent years and it was time to throw off the ‘‘green extremism’’ that had prevented new projects going ahead. He cited 100 possible new dams as part of an opposition policy paper, but even Coalition environment spokesman Greg Hunt distanced himself from his leader’s enthusiasm for dams as a water security solution. ‘‘We have no proposal for 100 dams as such,’’ Mr Hunt told ABC radio. The Arundel dam idea goes back more than six years, when the state Liberals’ then water spokesman, Denis

Napthine, torpedoed his leader Ted Baillieu by admitting the idea of a dam on the Maribyrnong was “fundamentally a flood mitigation proposal” and not a water supply solution. The state Liberal proposal was intended to supply water to 90,000 northern suburbs homes. One of Australia’s leading experts on bird strikes on planes at the time said the $80 million Arundel dam could attract birds with the capacity to bring down a plane. Melbourne Water said assessments had found that if a new 10,000 million litre capacity dam was built at Arundel, it could reasonably be expected to yield about 2,000 million litres of extra drinking water a year, if the recommended environmental flows to ensure the health of the Maribyrnong were to be maintained. — Helen Grimaux

Writing through the darkness BARRY Garner never pictured himself being a teacher or an author. For him, writing started as a way to help him deal with mental illness. After suffering depression, he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 1992. ‘‘I found it’s helped me to clear my mind and to cope with the illness,’’ he says. ‘‘It’s not about great pieces of literature. If people can find some solace and a voice they haven’t been able to express elsewhere then it’s a good thing.’’ In 2011, the Sunbury author’s book about his life, Haloes in the Windscreen, was published. Two weeks ago, he started running his third creative writing class through Western Region Health Centre (WRHC), this time in Sunshine ‘‘I ran a course in Sunbury 12-18 months ago and last year WRHC at St Albans wanted me to run a course at the Caroline Springs library. ‘‘It’s been really positive and they [the students] have really enjoyed having a go.

As someone who regularly deals with road trauma victims throughout the western suburbs, especially vulnerable road users such as motorcyclists, I was saddened to recently see that the TAC has decided to re-run a television advertisement from 2009 that was widely condemned by the riding community at the time. The TAC has had years of correspondence from those who ride and are advocates of safe riding — this ad, ‘The Ride’, misses the mark. It also flies in the face of the recent parliamentary motorcycle safety inquiry that reported the figures used in the ad were inaccurate.

COUNTERPOINT Horses for courses, but not for mains? From paddock to plate is our preferred free-range fare except, it seems, when the meat on the menu is horse. Spare a thought for all those discarded equines hanging around leftover paddocks across Melbourne’s north-west frontiers before you have your say. Australia is one of the largest exporters of horse meat in the world (and camel meat, for that matter). Horse meat has less fat content and fewer calories than the leanest beef, and reportedly provides 30 per cent more iron and 50 per cent more protein than any ruminating bovine. Cattle also add significantly to methane emissions, a major source of greenhouse gases, because their digestive processes require five stomachs. So what’s wrong with our stomachs? Or is it just another case of mind over matter? Have your say at brimbankweekly.com.au

Overnewton Taylor-made

O

vernewton Castle oozes history, starting with that locally familiar name... William Taylor. The Scotsman bought the 5260 hectare property in 1849 and it remained in the Taylor family until 1959. It was once a single storey bluestone residence with six rooms named after the town William Taylor grew up in on the outskirts of Glasgow. William, his wife Helen and their 13 children lived there, adding a second floor in 1859. From then it had seven bedrooms — and another five for servants — drawing, crockery, linen, school and billiard rooms; a library; two-roomed kitchen; pantry; dining room; scullery; store and boot rooms; an office, cellar and three internal and external toilets. Overnewton provided work for many locals and seasonal workers. The estate had its own butcher shop and dairy and was one of the first properties in the area to generate its own electricity between 1918-1922. After the Taylors, the next family to move into Overnewton were the Carrs. The estate remained in the Carr family from 1959-1975 and during that time the property was sub-divided and they turned the billiard room into a chapel so Overnewton became a popular wedding venue. In 1975 Overnewton Leslie J. Norton.

Today, Overnewton Castle continues the wedding tradition started by the Carr family and also has open days for its gardens — which has trees planted by the Taylor family — and hosts devonshire and high teas. For more information visit: overnewtoncastle.com.au

Keilor Public Golf Course and Driving Range Offering: An 18 hole golf course with resident kangaroo’s and a 20 bay driving range with a new practice pitching green and practice bunker. There is a Wednesday over 55’s competition, as well as a resident golf professional offering tuition for all ages and ability plus a junior program during school terms as well as programs for people with disability. We have ten brand new golf carts for use for those who have trouble walking 18 holes. Our green fees are very reasonable starting at $11.50 for 9 holes for pensioners. Booking’s can now be done online at the Keilor Public Golf Course web site. Just follow the instructions to get the tee time you want.

Much like some of our freeways today, crossing the Old Iron Bridge incurred a toll which varied for cattle and people. A sheep, lamb, pig or goat incurred one farthing; an ox or head of meat cattle, one penny; a horse, mare, ass or mule, threepence.

E W R N T

Last year Vic Roads transferred the bridge — which provides a link between Keilor and Brimbank Park — to Brimbank City Council. The Keilor Historical Society president Susan Jennison couldn’t be happier. ‘‘A lot of work has gone in to protect and promote this significant heritage site,” Ms Jennison said. “We are thrilled that it’s going to council, as we would like to see a long-term approach to its preservation.”

Directions/Address Calder Highway, Keilor. Off Kings road when coming from the city or from Calder Park. Hours of Business Dawn to Dusk. Only closed Christmas Day. Social Golf groups most welcome.

History with a side serve of joy

The history of Christ Church extends prior to the building on the site of Church and Kennedy Street. This church replaced a corrugated iron building on the Calder Highway between Bonfield and Flora Streets.

K

eilor residents have plenty to celebrate this year with the town’s 150th anniversary. It will be celebrated from March 1- 3 with events for the whole family, making it a great time to get together and visit historical exhibitions at the Old Shire Hall and Harricks Cottage, and watch or join in a street parade.

Christ Church (1877) was designed by Ebenezer Bonfield and dedicated by Dr Macartney, Dean of Melbourne, on January 28th 1877. [Source: Keilor’s Heritage]

This small church in the heart of Keilor village was built in 1876. … The committee formed to build the new church included John Beale, Ebenezer Bonfield, David Milburn, John Eagling, Henry Joyce, David Luck and Henry Seuling. The church was part of a large parish, extending to Bulla and Broadmeadows. The first vicar of the parish, Rev. Richard Rodda (1877-1906), lived at Broadmeadows and would travel on horseback to visit parishioners and take services….” [Source: Brimbank City Council Post-contact Cultural Study]

Dinner with Keilor Rotary Club at Keilor Hotel or indulging in high tea at Overnewton Homestead are other unmissable attractions.

This really was a ‘Bush Village’ Church.

And why not witness the renaming of Keilor Park Recreation Reserve to Joe Brown Recreation Reserve — honouring the man himself, a resident of Keilor involved in community events like the Keilor Gift [running event] which he participated in and organised for many years.

The new Brimbank Anglican Church has now celebrated it’s 5th Birthday. The location is on the corner of Keilor Park Drive, Ely Street and Cemetery Road, Keilor. The service times on a Sunday are 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. Susan Jennison OAM February, 2013

‘‘The 150th anniversary represents a celebration of people and events that took place in the Keilor region dating back to the early 19th century,’’ says local historian and president of The Keilor Historical Society Susan Jennison. Part of the Keilor Historical Society’s recognition of the anniversary is to establish a legacy through artwork for the town this year.

Description “A small plain brick church on bluestone foundations with steeply-pitched slate roof. The porch features a bell-wall, while solid buttresses and Gothic, pointed arch windows break up the side walls. Contrasting brickwork is used to pick out the corners and window surrounds. Modern additions in brick for the community centre have been added to the building, involving opening up the interior to provide a side chapel which was subsequently altered for other uses. The Taylor Gates (1947), in clinker brick and wrought iron, have been constructed at the corner of Church Street. (The gateway is actually in Kennedy Street.)

Empathy drives this pro bono lawyer Migrants who’ve been through the mill have a friend indeed, writes Melissa Cunningham

L

solicitor with Shine Lawyers, says Mr Pandher’s case is not unique. A survivor of a military coup in Ghana, Mr Osei understands the law better than most and has a desire to protect Brimbank’s most vulnerable. “Some of our clients, particularly from the growing Indian, African, Burmese and Afghan communities in the western suburbs, are unaware of their rights in the workplace and that is very concerning to me,” he says. “I recently encountered a worker who had suffered chemical burns to his lower leg. He was taken to the GP but told to say it was a hot water burn. ‘‘The worker is still undergoing treatment almost two years after the injury and there’s a real risk of him losing his lower leg if things don’t improve.’’ Mr Osei receives WorkCover claims from migrants at least once a week,

many of them too afraid to report their injury for fear of losing their job. ‘‘Raising awareness among these groups needs to be prioritised,’’ he says. ‘‘In Lakhvir’s case, he can’t walk, he can’t sleep because he’s in constant pain and he relies on strong pain killers just to get through the day.’’ Mr Osei, who migrated to Australia in 1994, has completed four degrees: a bachelor of health science and bachelor of law, a master of public health and a graduate diploma in health services management. As well as his legal work he is a registered nurse and works in the emergency department of Sunshine Hospital each Saturday. “Both jobs offer me the unique opportunity to assist the vulnerable,’’ Mr Osei offers free consultations for migrants with workplace injuries.

akhvir Pandher had high hopes for his new life when he arrived in Australia in 2008. After a taking a labouring job at a factory in Sunshine West while studying business at Victoria University, Mr Pandher felt like he was settling into life in his new homeland. But last September a workplace injury left him unable to continue working and has made everyday tasks like driving impossible. The 27-year-old is still undergoing tests to determine whether he will need spinal surgery. ‘‘I was made to lift and stack more than 40 kilograms at once and in doing so I damaged my back and my neck,’’ Mr Pandher says. ‘‘I was in so much pain I couldn’t go to work. I told my boss, who said it was my own fault for lifting that much . . . even though he’d told me to do it.’’ Sunshine lawyer Kofi Osei, a senior

Art casts its light of tolerance This exhibition enhances interfaith dialogue, writes Helen Grimaux iving in a secular society means accepting and respecting spiritual and cultural differences. To do this, we need to learn more about each other. Brimbank Council has joined forces with the Brimbank and Maribyrnong Interfaith Network to produce an exhibition exploring the benefits and challenges of interfaith dialogue. March’s Faith 2 Faith Art in Public Spaces in the heart of Sunshine will feature works created by local artists. There will also be a pop-up gallery on platform 2 at Sunshine station. The exhibition is part of Brimbank’s ‘Interfaith Communities in Action’ project, aiming to promote harmony and address racism and intolerance. Brimbank chairman John Watson says council supports people practising their faith peacefully. ‘‘With more than 190,000 residents, Brimbank is a culturally and religiously diverse district,’’’ Mr Watson says. ‘‘Residents come from more than 60 ethnic backgrounds and there are more than 20 different religions being practised in Brimbank.’’ Mr Watson emphasises the importance of

encouraging interfaith dialogue to help people understand, respect and accept the values and beliefs of others. “Through this exhibition, we hope to see the community developing meaningful inter-cultural and inter-religious relationships. We hope to empower people to speak out and address racism and intolerance.” Westgate Baptist Community Church pastor and interfaith network chairman, Reverend Geoff Wraight, says interfaith dialogue is about celebrating diverse and different ways of expressing the basic human need to connect and find meaning. ‘‘Art is a universal language that often breaks through cultural, religious and generational divides, and this exhibition is a great opportunity to further interfaith understanding and experiences in our community,’’ Mr Wraight says. The exhibition, at Sunshine Art Spaces Gallery , 11 Sun Crescent, Sunshine, is open from Friday until March 28, 10.30am-2pm on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Details: sunshineartspaces.com.au.

Thanks, doc: a Keilor stalwart looks back Popular doctor’s right at the heart of things, writes Melissa Cunningham fter leaving school when he was 14, Leslie Norton never dreamed he would become a leader in the field of medicine. But life is full of surprises, says the longtime Keilor resident, 73. ‘‘I left school when I was young, like many people in those days, and went to work as a telephone technician,’’ Dr Norton says. ‘‘I didn’t see a future in that and had always loved science, so I decided to become a pathologist technician. One of the teachers at the school said to me they reckoned I had the brains to do medicine and I thought, why not.’’ Dr Norton was recently named Brimbank’s citizen of the year for his work in health and on preserving history in the north-west. After completing a medical technology diploma, Dr Norton went to night school to obtain the results he needed to get into medicine at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Soon after graduating he moved to Keilor and

began working at the Western General Hospital, where he was quickly made head of the gastroenterology unit. ‘‘It was an exciting time because I was the first doctor in the west able to do gastroscopies,’’ he says. ‘‘Keilor was only a developing township in the 1970s, with a very small population, but I was drawn to the area for its history.’’ In 1972, Mr Norton bought Overnewton Castle and transformed it into a historical treasure. ‘‘It was completely run down. But it is so important to the history of the area, so I started to do it up and used part of it to create the first medical practice in the area.’’ Dr Norton, a member of a East Keilor Rotary Club, was a founding member of the Keilor Historical Society. But for now he says life is about winding down and spending time with family. ‘‘My five children keep me on my toes,’’ he chuckles. ‘‘And my grandchildren make things even more enjoyable.’’

TRIPPING

Walking the gauntlet Crossing the road in Saigon provides an adrenaline rush that puts some adventure sports to shame, writes David Bonnici can do is hope everyone goes around you, though this doesn’t seem to apply to any vehicle with four wheels. First rule of crossing busy Saigon thoroughfares: don’t cross in front of anything bigger than a motorbike! Second rule of crossing busy Saigon thoroughfares: walk in a slow, but steady pace and for goodness’ sake don’t stop or make any rash moves! Simply look at the traffic and walk; don’t worry, they’re looking for you, anticipating your moves and aiming for the spot you’re about to vacate. My first attempt at playing human Frogger was across Ton Duc, a wide, busy boulevard beside Saigon River. It’s a rush to walk into moving traffic, to be enveloped by the roaring, beeping mechanical herd and emerge on the other side of the road unscathed.

tion and criss-cross in similar breadth at uncontrolled intersections like an endless, meticulously choreographed motorcycle stunt show. Adding to the spectacle are scooters carrying whole families or loads that would have trouble fitting in the back of a Ford Falcon. Despite the mayhem, everything flows because everyone is aware of what is in front and around them. Crossing this madness is an excellent demonstration of their attentiveness. Pedestrian crossings are the safest places to cross. This might sound obvious until you realise nothing stops at pedestrian crossings unless they’re at controlled intersections — they are simply there to alert motorists to the fact that someone may attempt to enter the fray on foot. This means, as a pedestrian, all you

espite doing everything the guide books told me not to do, which meant I caught a shonky taxi and paid well over par, the drive into town from Tan Son Nat International Airport was a wonderful introduction to Ho Chi Minh City. The trip into Vietnam’s largest city, otherwise known as Saigon, had me sticking my head out the window in wide-eyed wonderment. Being part of the city’s notoriously congested arterials made this routine trip an adventure in itself. The traffic here somehow manages to flow despite the tide of motorbikes and scooters, which weave around each other and scatter from the path of unyielding larger vehicles. Bikes often negotiate the wider boulevards 10 abreast in each direc-

MOTORING ●

Honda adds 2WD to CR-V range Derek Ogden and Ewan Kennedy road test the new-generation SUV onda CR-V, the fourth generation of the compact sport utility vehicle that 17 years ago helped define the soft-roader segment, now comes in two-wheel or four-wheel-drive variants. Prices start with the base model 2WD sixspeed manual VTi at just over $27,000, while the top 4WD VTi-L five-speed automatic rounds out the range at $42,000-plus. Previously we considered the Honda CR-V was overpriced for a plain ‘meat and three veg’ taste of compact SUV living. Thanks as much as anything to a crowded market, that is a thing of the past, with the latest CR-Vs dishing up tasty features at competitive prices. Over the space of 10 days we experienced a broad span of CR-V models, spending time with the entry-level 2WD in five-speed automatic guise and the top-dog 4WD VTI-L five-speed auto with steering wheel-mounted paddle shift. The designers and engineers have worked hard on Honda’s theme of ‘bigger on the inside, smaller on the outside’. At 22mm shorter and

H

30mm lower than its predecessor, the flat front makes a bold statement with its three-slat radiator grille and big Honda ‘H’. A sedan-style profile is augmented by large wheel arches spanning 17- or 18-inch wheels Inside, the cabin is designed to give a feeling of openness. With the two front seats further apart than before, there is more shoulder room. Occupants are further spoilt by a new level of cabin quietness thanks to engine and road noise being kept at bay by improved sound insulation. Noise from neither engine on offer – the 2.0-litre or 2.4-litre i-VTEC – is intrusive. Efficiency is the name of the game here with combined urban/highway fuel consumption put at 7.7 litres per 100 kilometres and 8.7 litres per 100 kilometres respectively. Ride and handling are up there with the best in class, both with comfort and stability that are almost sedan-style. The new CR-V, even in base model 2WD manual form, is accessory rich. Satellite navigation and DVD are factory fitted options.

Dark day for Crows

Delahey takes on the big guns BY LANCE JENKINSON NEWLY promoted Delahey is a relatively small fish in a tank full of sharks in the Tennis Victoria women’s premier league. The tiny-by-comparison Goldsmith Avenue club will square off with some of the heavyweight clubs of Victorian tennis when the elite competition begins on Friday night. Delahey president Brendon Noonan told the Weekly it was the hard work of his players that had got the club to this point and it will be the same fighting spirit that will see them take up the challenge in the top flight. ‘‘The girls are the ones who have done it,’’ he said. ‘‘We just think for a small club and a club out on this side of town, it’s a great achievement. ‘‘We’re really hoping that we can use it as an opportunity to promote tennis in the region.’’ It will be a largely home-grown contingent for Delahey. Five of the six players are from the local area, all between 16 and 19. The headline act for Delahey is undoubtedly Viktorija Rajicic, the 12th-ranked female in Australia. The hard-hitting, big-serving 18-year-old, who has played in Australian Open qualifiers, fits nicely as the No.1 player on the team. ‘‘Her family lives in Delahey, she’s trained at Delahey pretty much all her life and she’s keen to help the club continue to promote tennis,’’ Noonan said. ‘‘She’s developed a massive serve and a massive forehand and from what I’ve seen, she looks like she’s going places.’’ Stefani Stojic (Australian ranking of 41), Georgiana Ruhrig (55), Monika Rajicic (66) and Melissia Esguerra (114) are the other local products.

BY LANCE JENKINSON

Rarin’ to go: Delahey coach Geoff Guy with premier league stars Stefani Stojic and Monika Rajicic. Delahey has brought in some experience in Karolina Wlodarczak (16). The battle-hardened 25-year-old achieved a career-high singles ranking of 380 in 2011. Her experience in the doubles — she has won three ITF tournaments — could prove invaluable. Noonan could not be happier with the assembled team. ‘‘They’re all full on, they all train hard and love the sport,’’ he said.

Delahey’s operations and tactics will be in good hands. The team is captained by club coach Geoff Guy. Guy is a major reason why the club is in such a healthy position with over 250 juniors. ‘‘The story goes back about 10 years,’’ Noonan said. ‘‘We’re still a small club, but since Geoff’s come on board, we’ve grown from something like three teams in the junior competition to now 11. We

Picture: Mathew Lynn

peaked at 13 a couple of seasons ago. ‘‘The place has come on in leaps and bounds since Geoff has come on board. ‘‘He has coached three of the girls in the team pretty much all their careers.’’ Delahey’s first round match-up will be on Friday night against Grace Park at the Kooyong Tennis Club from 7pm. They will back up on Sunday against Royal South Yarra at MCC Tennis Club from midday.

Aberfeldie restricted as Cougars find form KEALBA-GREEN Gully has recaptured a semblance of its best form to be in the box seat against Aberfeldie-St John’s after day one in the North West Metropolitan Cricket Association Luscombe Shield contest at Fairbairn Park on Saturday. The Cougars were eager to bounce back following a horrible performance seven days earlier in the topof-the-table clash with Pascoe Vale Central, which saw them cough up the ladder lead as a consequence. With a home final at stake, the Cougars returned to form, having Aberfeldie-St John’s all out for 177. Tristan Krizanic (4-34), Danny Viani (3-32) and Jarrod Catania (2-59) were on song for Cougars.

[ 38 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

The Cougars prowled confidently to 1-110 at stumps, just 68 runs short of victory with nine wickets in hand. Sydenham-Hillside faces an uphill task against Pascoe Vale Central. The Storm could muster only 153 in a tough 77 overs. Centrals are 0-4 in response. Meanwhile, there was an incredible scoreline from the Roxburgh Park-Broadmeadows and Buckley Park clash at Lakeside Drive Reserve. Buckley Park declared on 0-333 with Mark McPherson (201 not out) and Leigh O’Mara (102no) withstanding anything the Falcons bowlers

February 26, 2013

threw at them. McPherson is the form batsman in the competition with three centuries in a row to go with three half-centuries he made earlier in the summer. — Lance Jenkinson NWMCA Luscombe Shield: Pascoe Vale Central 0-4 v Sydenham-Hillside 153 (D Tripp 3-37 S Gick 2-19 D Barker 2-26), Aberfeldie St Johns 177 (T Krizanic 4-34 D Viani 3-32 J Catania 2-59) v Kealba-Green Gully 1-110 Vic Kyte Shield: Sydenham-Hillside 222 v Burnside Springs 0-6

SUNSHINE has stooped to a new low in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association. The Crows were left red-faced after being routed for 35 in a 188-run loss to Malvern at Dempster Park on Saturday. They had no answer to Malvern opening bowler Ajay Bhatt, who took 6-10 off 12 overs, including a hattrick. Crows captain Troy Stone conceded it was an embarrassing score at home. ‘‘You couldn’t go much lower,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s not acceptable, not good enough. ‘‘Thirty-five isn’t up to standard and isn’t good enough for the level of cricket we’re playing. ‘‘It was a pretty poor day.’’ The Crows somehow managed to avoid an outright defeat. When you make such a pitiful first innings score, it is a feat to avoid the concession of maximum points. They recovered from 4-15 in their second dig to produce a gritty 7-132 in 57 overs. David Bonavia continued his outstanding summer with 44. Sam Magnano added 43 and Anthony Neicho chimed in with 20 not out. ‘‘We dug deep to avoid the outright,’’ Stone said. ‘‘There were some positive signs there.’’ The hard questions will be asked of the Crows first XI during the week. There is likely to be punishment on the training track and the axe could loom. ‘‘There will be a bit of pressure on us from the coaching staff and the other captains during the week,’’ Stone said. ‘‘Who knows what might happen with the side? ‘‘This was our worst performance for the year.’’ The Crows, confirmed wooden spooners, will host Roxburgh ParkBroadmeadows in a final round onedayer at Dempster Park on Saturday.

Blues finally hit their straps, but it’s too late BY LANCE JENKINSON

INBRIEF Bowls Keilor Downs bowls star Carla Odgers bowed out at the semi-final stage of last week’s Australian Open women’s singles. Odgers, who plays for Lalor in pennant, left with unfulfilled expectations following a 9-4 4-8 5-2 defeat to Karen Murphy in the semis at the Darebin City Bowls Club on Thursday. The eventual champion was Australian international Lisa Phillips, who toppled Murphy 9-5 8-9 4-2. Brighton’s Aaron Wilson won the men’s singles final 12-3 8-10 4-1 over Matthew Ayres.

Soccer The draw has been released for the opening two rounds of the Football Federation Victoria men’s and women’s knockout cups. The first round of the men’s competition on Saturday will see a fierce local derby between Sunshine

George Cross and North Sunshine Eagles at Chaplin Reserve, while the St Albans Saints will host Melton Phoenix and Westvale Olympic entertains Essendon Royals. In the women’s draw, the Western Eagles are the only local team in action in round one, hosting Albert Park on Sunday, while Cairnlea and Keilor Park received a free pass into the second round.

Cricket St Andrew’s Cricket Club has celebrated its 70th anniversary in style. Sainters past and present converged on the club’s home at Pennell Reserve on Saturday to share their legendary stories about the club’s history. The Saints put on a show on the pitch as well, with the finals-bound side posting 9-260 on day one of their Victorian Turf Cricket Association west B1 clash with Avondale Heights.

THE penny has dropped a game too late for Keilor coach Nigel Freebairn’s liking. The Blues have waited until they were gone from Victorian Turf Cricket Association senior division finals picture before unleashing their most intimidating performance of the summer. They pulled off a final round shock on Saturday, toppling four-time defending champion Yarraville Club for just 104 and claiming first innings points inside a day. With a day still to play, the Blues (8-122 in reply) want to continue piling on the misery on the finals-bound Clubbers to play a part in their rivals missing out on a home semi-final. ‘‘We’ve finally reached our potential, but it’s all a little bit too late,’’ Freebairn lamented. ‘‘I’ve been saying we’ve got the best attack in the competition and I stand by that. ‘‘Finally, we’ve lived up to that. ‘‘The bowlers have been consistent all year with the exception of our last game against Greenvale. ‘‘Today we really hit our straps.’’ It was always going to be a mouthwatering fight between bat and ball. The Clubbers have a plethora of big guns in their batting line-up. They have cranked it up to first gear

SCOREBOARD VTCA Senior division: Keilor 8-122 v Yarraville Club 104 North division: Keilor Park 4-50 v Footscray United 100; Sunshine Druids 80 v Royal Park-Brunswick 7-89 North A1: Moonee Valley 0-4 v Sunshine United 231 (I Uddin 6-81 K Hassan 2-39); Altona Roosters v St Albans 5-245 (SM Jones 108 R Jaeger 35 S Harman 32 A Peters 2-41 L Lewis 2-49); PEGS 7-383 (B Hannah 104 R Batepola 85 P Shipp 50no D Perera 46 A Dudderidge 38 M Foley 32) v Taylors Lakes West B1: St Andrews 9-260 v Avondale Heights; Sunshine Heights 110 v Sunshine YCW 2-48

since Christmas. ‘‘They have been [the form team],’’ Freebairn said. ‘‘It’s the way they do it every year. They have a slow start to the year and as the wickets get better as the year rolls on, their strength really rises to the fore, which is their batting. ‘‘They score lots of runs and I don’t remember the last time they were humbled as well as we humbled them. ‘‘Today proves our best is as good as any.’’ Left-arm swing bowler Matt

Willmott was the chief destroyer. The all-rounder finished with five wickets. New ball operator Dan Schuppan snared two. ‘‘They’ve got a lot of big name players in their side,’’ Freebairn said. ‘‘He [Willmott] got a few of their big scalps.’’ The Blues are not content with the first innings result. They want to give the Clubbers a taste of their own medicine and grind them into the ground when play resumes on Saturday. ‘‘Our objective today was to have a say in the way the four is shaped,’’ Freebairn said. ‘‘Now we want to finish off strongly next week.’’

Top side piles pressure on Eagles BY LANCE JENKINSON SUNSHINE is facing mounting pressure to retain its place among the Baseball Victoria summer league division 1 elite. The Eagles slid further into the mire with an 11-2 loss to top side Geelong at Barclay Reserve on Saturday. The home side fought hard but was simply outclassed by the premier team in the competition. ‘‘It was a good game early, we had some good at-bats,’’ Eagles player coach Shaun Moore said. ‘‘Then in the fifth innings, they kind of blew it open to lead 5-2 and carried it on from there.’’ Moore put his hand up for some of the blame. He missed what he says was a

catchable fly ball in the outfield that resulted in three runs in the fifth. ‘‘It should’ve been three-out for the innings, but they went on to lead 5-2,’’ Moore said. Eagles starting pitcher Rory Meddick had been solid until that point. He threw seven strong innings, but the fifth blotted his copybook. ‘‘He was a bit stiff at the start, he was just around the zone a little bit,’’ Moore said. ‘‘After the second innings, he really hit his straps and was really working the corners and keeping the pitches low. When he’s on, he’s a really good pitcher and tough to handle.’’ The Eagles have been a breath of fresh air with their competitiveness in their first summer back in division 1. They have won 10 games and taken

the challenge up to the best teams in the competition. It still might not be enough. ‘‘Years ago, if you got 10 wins, you stay up,’’ Moore said. ‘‘This year, it’s been a good, tight competition and that’s great for the competition. ‘‘Unfortunately, we’re second last and need to try and find a win from somewhere.’’ The task does not get any easier for the Eagles. They face third-placed Blackburn in back-to-back games, tonight at the Melbourne Ballpark (8.50) and on Saturday (2pm) on the road at Billabong Park, before a last-round encounter with fifth-placed Waverley. ‘‘We have to go out there, keep playing and see what happens,’’ Moore said.
