here are times, we all know, when words are woefully inadequate and it seems even more diabolically so to those of us who fling them about for a living. When one of my oldest mates Dave was dying, the words I couldn’t say to him or his wife — both also journos — morphed into penguininspired objects, as they were always both quite partial to the creatures. There were penguin bookmarks, penguin books, penguin ornaments, penguin pencil sharpeners, a penguin pendant, penguin chocolates all posted interstate wordlessly. When the shops ran out of penguins – as being nowhere near the sea they very soon did – I began rewriting the great works of literature to include penguins. There was the long lost Penguin Prologue to the Canterbury Tales. I rediscovered Esperance — the nanny penguin cut from the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet by censors after the Great Penguin Pogroms of the 14th century. When Dave died, I flew across for the funeral with a five-kilogram glass penguin swathed in half a kilometre of bubble-wrap. The sheer absurdity of it gave me strength, especially when airport security stopped the X-ray conveyor and demanded to know what was in the suspicious parcel. “A very heavy glass penguin,” I replied. The guard looked me with an expression that said, ‘Sure, it’s a heavy glass penguin’. He then insisted, quite nastily, that I unwrap it — presumably just in case it went off. And as I held it out for inspection it was clear to everyone that this was a penguin of mass destruction. Someone behind me snickered. I didn’t cry, but I didn’t laugh either because I didn’t want the penguin to miss the plane.

Fireys maintain rage against funding cuts BY BENJAMIN MILLAR THE fight against Metropolitan Fire Brigade budget cuts is heating up as firefighters vow to maintain pressure on the state government. Firefighters from Melbourne’s west rallied at State Parliament this month and met Greens’ emergency services spokeswoman, Colleen Hartland, in Footscray on Friday to lay out their concerns about the $66 million budget cuts. Firefighters from Footscray, Altona, Newport, Keilor and Deer Park say the cuts stripping $41 million from the CFA and $25 million from the MFB will affect staff numbers and compromise firefighter and community safety. The United Firefighters Union claims the government has been caught out trying to hide the funding cuts. But Emergency Services Minister Peter Ryan insists there will be no effect on frontline firefighting services. “There will be reductions [in funding] for the CFA and MFB; they will be in the order of figures that are being

talked about, that is so,” he told ABC Radio. Firefighters at the meeting with Ms Hartland also discussed Greens’ plans to introduce laws improving access to Workcover insurance and compensation when firefighters get sick on the job. “All Victorians know that firefighters risk injury, even death to fight fires in this state,” Ms Hartland said. “The sad truth is that firefighters are far, far more likely to contract a range of cancers due to exposure to toxic carcinogens.” Ms Hartland said the Greens would work with any party to build the same strong cross-party support that helped similar legislation pass Federal Parliament last year, ensuring better access to Workcover insurance and compensation for ill and injured firefighters.

Court rules: company’s muck-up costs to pay for clean-up company unintentionally discharged trifluralin when a new pipe temporarily connected Schutz’s wastewater treatment plant to the stormwater system. Wastewater containing chemicals toxic to aquatic life entered the local drain and then Cherry Creek. Water samples collected at the point of entry showed a concentration of trifluralin 500 times higher than the recommended level regarded as safe for aquatic life.

The court heard the creek was a valuable habitat for wetland plants and water birds. Schutz was ordered to fund a $40,000 environmental project next to Cherry Creek, near Cherry Lake, involving weed clearing, building a rabbit-proof fence and restoring the area to its natural state by planting indigenous grasses. It was also ordered to pay the EPA’s costs of $15,000. Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek president Geoff Mitchelmore said it

EPA metro manager Richard Marks said Brooklyn was a focal point. “EPA has focused on specific sites and envir-

Half the calls to EPA’s pollution hotline were in regard to odour, while water and noise accounted for about 20 per cent each of calls.’’ — Goya Dmytryshchak

Two old foes to face off

Silence on site’s hazards WILLIAMSTOWN residents say lives are being put at risk because no one in authority is demanding an emergency evacuation plan for the Port Phillip Woollen Mill development site, which is situated near Mobil’s tank farm supplying half of Victoria’s fuel. Hobsons Bay Council blames Planning Minister Matthew Guy, while Mr Guy’s office has not responded to repeated phone calls and emails from the Weekly about whether the community is being put at risk. Spokesman for the developer conglomerate, Evolve Development managing director Ashley Williams, has also failed to respond to repeated requests for comment about whether the lack of a larger emergency evacuation plan could be placing people at risk. According to early design plans and a construction management plan submitted to the council by the developer, the mill site could have more than 800 dwellings including four residential towers up to 13 storeys. Hobsons Bay’s planning and environment director, Peter Gaschk, said Mr Guy had determined that an evacuation plan was necessary only for a 25-metre-strip of the 2.7 hectare site, which is bounded by Nelson Place and Ann, Kanowna and Aitken streets. ‘‘The planning controls introduced by the Minister for Planning only require the provision of an emergency evacuation plan in the ‘advisory area’ identified in the planning controls,’’ Mr Gaschk said. ‘‘The ‘advisory area’ is an area along the Kanowna Street frontage to the site between Nelson Place and Cecil Street, extending 25 metres back into the site from Kanowna Street.’’ Save Williamstown spokesman Godfrey

Moase said: ‘‘The fact that no one in authority can give a straight answer on safety shows the way the site is being developed is a clear case of putting money before human lives. ‘‘The state government, council and developer are on notice about the risk.’’ Charmian Gaud, also a member of Save Williamstown, said community safety did not just apply to the 36 apartments proposed in the ‘advisory area’. ‘‘It is about the other 780 proposed dwellings plus 1500 existing residents and 1500 existing workers in the Gellibrand Peninsula. ‘‘Council could require the emergency evacuation plan for the whole peninsula as per the

Bushfires Royal Commission. The community needs to be alert and aware of dangers.’’ Asked if the entire site would need to be evacuated in the event of an emergency, Mobil spokeswoman Melanie Saliba said: “Any evacuation of the site that may be required as a result of any incident, be it as a result of Mobil operations or other, would be determined by the emergency services incident commander nominated as responsible for community safety.” The community has until Wednesday to make submissions on four applications lodged by the developer to build 153 dwellings up to six storeys high.

FORMER Innova and Mobil employee Maureen Short is running against Hobsons Bay mayor Tony Briffa at the October 27 election. Ms Short said she was running for council because she had ‘‘always been civic-minded and highly passionate’’ about Hobsons Bay. Ms Short and Cr Briffa are among 14 candidates vying for two positions in Cherry Lake ward. The two independent candidates have been involved in a long-running saga after Cr Briffa sent three emails to Ms Short saying she should be dismissed by Mobil and that ‘‘the gloves are now off’’. The emails centred on a community meeting about a controversial toxic soil plant proposed for Altona by Innova Soil Technology. ‘‘The Innova project is not something I am involved with any more and I remain neutral about the issue,’’ Ms Short said. ‘‘I want to move forward, not backwards. From an integrity and emotional point of view, there have been some tough times.’’ Cr Briffa said Ms Short’s nomination proved that ‘‘her complaint against me was nothing more than a political witch-hunt by a failed Labor Party candidate’’. ‘‘In the interests of openness and transparency, I hope her election material makes it clear that she supports dirty industry like the proposed toxic soil facility in Altona, which I have always opposed.’’ Incumbent councillor John Hogg, who is among 11 candidates tussling for two vacancies in Wetlands ward, was this week expelled from the Labor Party for running against ALPsupported candidates. He will run as an independent. Sixteen candidates are running for three positions in Strand ward, including former ALP member Oliver Tripodi, who has not ruled out preferencing independents. Yesterday he said he had resigned from the party. Former premier Steve Bracks has endorsed independent Angela Altair and Labor’s Michael Raffoul, Luba Grigorovitch and Carl Marsich. — Goya Dmytryshchak

VICTORIA’S TAFE cuts never would have got past a cabinet-controlled state government, former premier Steve Bracks told an intimate gathering in Williamstown last week. “Williamstown’s own” was interviewed about his memoir, A Premier’s State, by his “trusted lieutenant” and former adviser and minister Tim Pallas. Mr Bracks, who became the Williamstown MP in 1994 and was Labor leader and state premier from 1999-2007, agreed with Mr Pallas he didn’t let political advisers or bureaucrats distract from the collegiate excellence he tried to instil in his cabinet. ‘‘That’s correct and I suspect that hasn’t been followed by our successors in the current government,’’ he said. ‘‘If you look at the [$300 million] TAFE [funding] cuts . . . interesting because that would never ever have got through an active cabinet, if you’re scrutinising. ‘‘I suspect what’s happened with this government is that they said they wanted to cut . . . Treasury always will give you a whole range of areas which you can cut and they’ve just said to them, ‘oh well’, without qualitatively deciding

‘‘ . . . you’ve got to have a filter on what you stand for and what’s your priority.’’ Steve Bracks ‘‘And budgets are simple; they’re your statement about what your priorities are. ‘‘And if you don’t have those priorities, somebody else is going to decide them for you. ‘‘I can see that this government is a department-led government. That is because the department’s so frustrated that [the government’s] not making the decisions that they’re making them for them, I guess.’’ Mr Bracks said former Liberal premier Jeff Kennett even had a ‘‘black cabinet’’ where he would meet with department heads separately. Mr Bracks said his government ensured that elected officials ran the government through the ‘‘supremacy of cabinet and collegiate decisionmaking.’’

Advice on TAFE cuts withheld BY BENJAMIN MILLAR ADVICE given to the state government before it announced a $300 million cut in TAFE funding is being withheld despite TAFE institutes calling for the release of the full modelling. A freedom of information request by the state opposition has revealed $150,000 was spent on the advice from consulting firm KPMG. Victorian TAFE Association executive director David Williams said the contents of the advice must be made public for the sake of transparency. Those in greatest need in the TAFE system were being hardest hit hard by the cuts, he said. “The cuts are the biggest in the history of TAFE and it’s anticipated the additional cost of training students with special needs will present a major challenge to many institutes now struggling to remain viable.” TAFE staff walked off the job on Thursday and about 2000 people turned out in Treasury Gardens for a noisy rally against the cuts. Future action has been flagged with the TAFE sector vowing to keep up the fight until the government agrees to reverse the cuts. Skills Minister Peter Hall said the industrial action was unnecessary. “While any period of change causes some uncertainty, I am confident

Seeking answers: Daniel Andrews says the cuts could spell the end of TAFE training. He’s with Victoria University student union representative Georgia Kennelly and National Tertiary Education Union’s Paul Adams. that Victoria’s training system is responding to the changes well and that we will have a stronger, more responsive and sustainable system in the future.” But Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews, in Footscray last week to meet Victoria University TAFE students and teaching staff to discuss the impact of the cuts, said they were rightly concerned. “These cuts could spell the end . . . training might be on its last legs in the western

suburbs.” The Weekly revealed last week that VU was slashing almost 80 courses and more than 100 teaching jobs following almost $40 million in funding cuts, with plans to sell off the Newport campus and close the VenU training restaurant. Federal Tertiary Education and Skills Minister Chris Evans said ‘‘destroying’’ the TAFE sector would mean Victoria would not have the skilled workforce it needed for the jobs of the future.

INBRIEF Miner in bid to renew licence A mining company has sought to renew a licence to search for coal beds in a 76,000-hectare area spanning parts of Hobsons Bay. The licence expired last week after being held for 12 years. Regal Resources has submitted an application to the Department of Primary Industries to have the exploration licence rolled over. The licence area covers residential areas of Altona, Altona Meadows and Williamstown. Anti-coal activists have slammed the move, claiming it proves the company is serious about long-term mining plans. DPI spokesman Alex White said the miner had so far used the permit to carry out exploratory drilling for presence of brown coal.

As the warmer weather approaches, people will be getting out and about – but be aware, for the same reasons people are getting more active, so too are snakes. If you see a snake in a park or reserve please keep well away. Remember, they are scared of you or your dog and will do everything possible to get out of your way. In areas of vegetation, keep dogs on a lead to avoid the likelihood of them getting bitten. Snakes bite to protect themselves from what they see as danger. If a snake bite does occur, keep calm, try to move away from the snake and seek medical advice immediately. To reduce the chance of snakes coming into your property and to make them more visible if they do: • Tidy up around your house. Remove any piles of rocks, timber, metal sheeting etc, that provide shelter for snakes; • An unkempt garden also attracts mice and rats which provide food for snakes; and • Cut your lawns regularly. Snakes are protected under the Wildlife Act 1975, making it illegal to capture or harm them.

A PERFORMANCE by Australian rock band AC/DC in their school hall in 1974 is one of the many fond memories Paisley High School foundation students will share at the coming 40-year reunion. “They wouldn’t have been very well known back then, but to us it meant a great deal. I remember kids dancing on the tables and getting right into it,” foundation student Carolyn Shanks recalls. About 150 students attended the new school in Newport in 1972 when it was just two portable classrooms and a toilet block. Students had to attend on a rostered basis until the infrastructure was completed. Paisley High School has since merged with two other schools to form Bayside P-12 College, which has three campuses. Milan Matejin, one of the foundation students, is principal at the Paisley campus, which caters for senior students.

Armed officers out in force WERRIBEE line commuters have welcomed the addition of armed guards patrolling train stations at night, police say. Squads of protective services officers began patrolling Werribee, Laverton and Yarraville earlier this month, with Hoppers Crossing added to the network on Tuesday last week. PSOs are deployed from 6pm until the last train every night, as Victoria Police continues rolling out the officers to metro and regional centres. Acting Superintendent Phillip Green said the PSOs had been ‘‘well received’’ by commuters at Laverton, Werribee and Yarraville. ‘‘The community has been pleased to see the PSOs on the platforms and are telling us they feel safer using the rail network at night.’’ He said there were 143 PSOs working at 20 train stations across the state. Police spokeswoman Kelly Yates said more than 3000 fines resulting from making arrests and detecting breaches of bail had been issued by PSOs since being deployed across Melbourne. ‘‘These were for a range of offences including being drunk in a public place, smoking or possessing alcohol,’’ she said. A further 800 PSOs are needed for the state government to be able to deliver on its election promise of 940 PSOs across Victoria. Opposition MP Jaala Pulford criticised the gov-

ernment’s delay in rolling out the PSOs. “[Police Minister Peter Ryan] has managed to achieve none of his own timelines after the recruitment process stalled. The policy is now over time and over budget.’’ — Nick Toscano

Sheriff ropes in 48 for old offences BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK

On deck: PSOs have been rolled out at Werribee, Laverton, Hoppers Crossing and Yarraville.

A LAVERTON company director with more than $80,000 in unpaid traffic fines had his driving licence and registration suspended after being caught during a blitz at Laverton North last week. The Sheriff’s Office caught 48 drivers owing $358,000 in unpaid fines during the crackdown last Wednesday from 9am-4pm. The director had 303 warrants issued against his name and his firm. He had racked up 165 infringement warrants for $43,765.80, while his business had 138 infringement warrants for $36,249.50. VicRoads was directed to suspend the man’s driver’s licence and vehicle registration. Sixteen officers were involved in the roadblock operation at William Angliss Drive, which detected 48 people with 863 outstanding infringement notices among them. Twenty four were notified that their licence or registration would be suspended unless

“You are liable for your unpaid fines. New technology to identify offenders and more targeted blitzes mean the sheriff will find you.’ — Brendan Facey payment was made within seven days. The 24 were repeat offenders with 524 warrants worth nearly $160,000 among them. Another 14 motorists paid 62 outstanding fines worth more than $16,000. Victorian sheriff Brendan Facey said the most common fines were for toll defaulting and parking and traffic offences. “As this operation shows, if you ignore your fines you will be caught,” he said. “You are liable for your unpaid fines. New technology to identify offenders and more targeted blitzes mean the sheriff will find you.”

A revolution of rising costs and the internet present a challenge, and an opportunity, for small-scale dress designers and makers. Tegan Forder reports

A

USTRALIA’S manufacture and retail industries are facing tough times, but boutique dressmakers in Melbourne’s western suburbs are carving out a niche market to help weather uncertain times. Since the 1970s, made-to-wear clothing has become the norm, but with changing trends and a desire for something unique, four women are finding that by being versatile, they are keeping their businesses afloat. Born in Rome, Deborah Selleck moved to Australia when she was 10 and remembers Melbourne, then, as a hive of activity in the fashion industry. “Flinders Lane, where I started working, was full of manufacturers, button and trim suppliers, fabric suppliers. As a junior, I’d get sent down the road and told, ‘Go and get some buttons for this order’, so I’d be there looking at racks and racks and racks of buttons. It was great, I loved it. “But after they dropped the import quotas in the ’80s you could import a whole garment on what you would spend on fabric.” The owner of Deborah Selleck Designs in Seddon says Australia could have maintained its clothing manufacturing industry had it followed the same path as Italy. “They invested a lot of money in skills and equipment. Their mills and machinery are top-of-therange and they produce the luxury product that they’re known for. We could have done the same with all the expertise we had in Australia.” Pointing out some intricate bead-work on a dress she’s working on, she says China and India have a booming manufacturing industry, not just because of the available labour but because they have machinery able to produce the intricate materials she favours. onna Umille and Lucy Laurita grew up with mothers who worked in the dressmaking industry until the work dried up. Despite the unstable nature of the industry,

D

both have followed the same path. “My mum never wanted to teach me,” Laurita laughs. “But when I was very little I used to sit behind her when she was sewing while I’d do her hair or give her a massage ... I just loved it.” The mother of two now runs her own label, Leiela, and wholesales to 10 stores around the country. It’s her made-to-measure business that’s gaining traction. She works out of a shopfront in Ascot Vale, most of the space being taken up by her workroom where clients come to try on Laurita’s sample dresses. It’s a similar story for Taylors Hill resident Umille. “My mum always did sewing and dressmaking from home, as did my grandmother so I was brought up with it,” the 24-year-old says. “I’ve been sewing since I was nine.” Umille decided to go it alone and has been running her business, A Donna Umille Creation, from her home in Taylors Hill for two-and-a-half years. The cars have been kicked out of the garage to make room for Umille’s pattern making, while two rooms inside have been transformed for sewing and fitting. wner of Elle and Stuart in Altona, Maureen Bourke also learned her sewing skills from her mother and developed a love of designing from an early age. “During the family road trips to Queensland, we’d stop at the petrol stations and grab all the paper towels to make dresses for our dolls,” she recalls. “My mum was really a great influence on that side of my life. She was really the one who taught me to sew.” The bubbly boutique owner is no stranger to operating small businesses, but it was only after she was encouraged by her aunt that she decided to combine her fashion and small business skills. Originally, she planned to stock only clothes she would buy, but cannily she included an alteration service, which has paid dividends with a number of her customers wanting clothes to be fitted.

O

She won a new startup business award last year and has since started stocking her own designs in-store. She drew up a design one night and put it together the next morning in the backroom of her shop. As Bourke put the dress on the model in the window, a passer-by started knocking on the door asking if she could buy it there and then. “The award gave me the chance to roll the dice and be a bit more adventurous and have confidence to make my own designs,” says Bourke. “It’s been fun.” Her own designs now make up a quarter of stock in the store and she’s keen to increase the percentage. t’s clear a love of creating fashion and a desire to make customers happy are required to beat the obstacles the industry can throw up. Selleck always wanted to be a fashion designer despite her family’s misgivings. “Most of my family were medical people and they thought that it was frivolous and silly so it wasn’t until I was in my 20s that I decided to do what I loved,” she recalls. After working for designers she decided to set out on her own to gain more worklife balance after the birth of her second child. Designing for just one client at a time appealed to her. “You become part of this whole intimate, emotional process where you’re dressing the one client for their special day,” she says. “You get a lot more satisfaction and a better life balance as well.” Breaking into the fashion business can be tough, so sometimes going it alone is the only way to get a foothold. “You need so much experience to go and work somewhere,’’ says Umille. ‘‘I applied for so many places but in the end I just did my own thing. No one would hire me because I’m not a senior sewer so I’d thought I’d do it from home.’’ She studied at Kangan TAFE to hone her skills in all areas of dressmaking from the design, pattern making and sewing. “It’s sad,’’ she says, ‘‘because people study

I

fashion and learn how to put things together and they can’t even use their skills because there just aren’t jobs out there.” To help retain and nurture those skills, Umille’s dream is to have a few boutiques of her own, where she can start employing people again in the industry. Also keen to hold onto those with the valued skills is Laurita, who depends on her dressmakers to make her bulk orders. “It’s hard to find dressmakers because it’s a dying trade,’’ she says. ‘‘There isn’t enough money in it. As a designer you do it tough. You do it because you love it.” The help of the dressmakers leaves time for Laurita and her assistant, Sara Crewther, to create the sample dresses for the label’s growing made-to-measure customer base. “We don’t advertise it [made-to-measure] as much as we should, but we’re finding that when people find us they’re saying, ‘We can’t believe you’re here, we can’t find anything in the retail stores’. “We’d definitely like to expand but times are pretty tough so we’re just happy with what we’re doing and gradually expanding. ‘‘Retail is hard at the moment, but the made-to-measure market is helping.’’ The internet is also having an impact with major retailers blaming online shopping for a decline in sales. Laurita says it’s definitely changing the way retailers do business. “When I started, I’d get an order for 40 dresses at a time and the retailers would be quite happy to have them on the shelves and sell them off.” Now, she says, retailers are reducing orders so her made-to-measure business is becoming more important. Umille sees online shopping as a mixed bag. On the one hand, people are looking to buy dresses overseas instead of going to a dressmaker, but for her, alterations make up a large part of the business. “Most of my alterations come from people buying off the internet,” she admits. “So in a way I do gain the alteration part of it. It’s a win and lose situation.”

History given a modern touch A one-time home of the pony express has been renovated and extended, writes Tegan Forder

istoric features and industrial design come together to create a remarkable piece of architecture, resulting in a design that’s luxurious but also practical. On a 530-square-metre block, the weatherboard house has plenty of history. It was built in 1937 by Mary Hoyne and her husband William, and there are strong influences of Frank Lloyd Wright and Walter Burley Griffin. Mary’s father, Albert Alexander, stabled at the back of the property the horses he used in his pony express service. Now the original weatherboard has been given a new lease of life by the owners and local architects Basset and Lobaza, who have renovated and extended this unique residence. The house has been rewired and restumped, and has full roof insulation in both the new and older ceilings. Classic period charm has been maintained at the front with the grey-painted weatherboard framed by a picket fence and cottage blooms. The main bedroom has been tastefully modernised with generous walk-through his and her ’robes. The opulent ensuite has floor to ceiling tiles, and a window overlooking a lush bamboo

H

plantation. A rainfall showerhead, frameless shower, floating double vanity, and heated towel racks complete the package. Three good-sized bedrooms retain period features, including picture rails and decorative ceilings, while ceiling fans make for added comfort. A convenient powder room has a delightful pink feature wall. The laundry is a huge space with an indoor clothesline and a Nobo heater, while outside is a retractable Brabantia clothesline. An industrial galvanised iron and glass sliding door separates the sleeping quarters from the living area, and the old from the new. But features from the front carried through to the rear include reclaimed Tassie oak floorboards. Although it’s in the open-plan space, the lounge room is delineated by a soft grey carpet. A pitched roof, spotted gum joinery, automatic electric blinds, bespoke retractable flyscreens, Jetmaster fireplace with bluestone pedestal shelf are just some of the fine features of the space. The kitchen is industrial in its design with stainless-steel appliances and benchtops and naked-bulb light fittings. An eightburner commercial-grade gas cooker is the focus of the space, while an island bench doubles as a breakfast bar and cleverly

encompasses lots of storage space. The walk-through butler’s pantry has room for a fridge; there’s more bench space and built-in shelving and cupboards. The open-plan space is completed with a dining area next to the outside spotted gum deck overlooking landscaped gardens. Other features include a 5000-litre water tank with pumps, solar panels, new fencing around the entire property, a cubbyhouse, bluestone paving and raised vegetables boxes, and a driveway with space for two cars.

hris and Amy were among the first residents to move to Riverwalk earlier this year — one of Werribee’s newest communities. The estate is 1.5 kilometres from Werribee’s city centre and beside Werribee River. Both commute to the city each week via the Princes Freeway which is a short drive from Riverwalk, or via train, with Werribee station just two kilometres away. ‘‘People are choosing to live at Riverwalk because its location provides access to shops, restaurants and services,’’ says Place Victoria portfolio director Greenfields Ken Munro. Construction on the $4million Village Park, due to open later next year, is scheduled to commence later this year. ‘‘The centrepiece will be one of the largest water play parks in Melbourne featuring water jets and fountains,’’ Mr Munro added. ‘‘When complete, the park will cover 16,000 square metres and will connect Riverwalk Town Centre to Werribee River.’’

CAREERS

A guide along life’s path Getting his life on track led Charles Vella to help others improve theirs, writes Rebecca Miller nder his father’s influence, Essendon’s Charles Vella became a mechanical and electrical engineer. Later, though, his career took a turn, one towards helping others. Charles says his role as a life coach and clinical hypnotherapist is rewarding and satisfying beyond words. ‘‘Engineering is a satisfying career and can be rewarding, but to help a person achieve something they didn’t think they could or help them become unstuck is even more so’’. A self-help course led him to his new career. ‘‘I attended self-help courses to get my life on track. After a few, I achieved amazing results in my life — then I wanted to facilitate change for others,’’ says Charles. ‘‘After graduating from a neurolinguistic life coaching program in

U

2006, I went on to study clinical hypnotherapy.’’ He enjoys the personal satisfaction of helping people become unstuck. ‘‘My career allows me to help a person break free from whatever is holding them back.’’ He aims to improve an individuals quality of life, showing them how to achieve personal and business goals, get over unwanted behaviours and habits, let go of past traumatic events, relieve anxiety and quit addictions. ‘‘People generally seek help from me when mainstream medicine or psychology hasn’t worked and they realise their issue is within their unconscious control,’’ Charles says. He studied with Landmark Education, a course which started him on his journey of self-help and discovery.

‘‘Beyond Landmark, there is one man — hypnotherapist Steve Kormas — who taught me the craft of application, to apply neuro-linguistic program and hypnosis beyond the classroom, ’’says Charles. ‘‘My life is now a constant lesson learnt by helping one individual at a time.’’ Being happy and healthy in life is not just something Charles teaches; he practises it too. ‘‘I’m happy being me: a husband, father, therapist and someone’s friend. I visit the gym regularly, cycle with friends and enjoy spending time with my family and renovating my home.’’ Charles has advice for anyone interested in a career as a life coach: ‘‘Work from your heart, train with a craftsman and love what you do.’’

P

suitcase with some soft bags. The Porsche Carrera S we reviewed has an improved version of the 3.8-litre flat-six engine. It now produces up to 294kW of power. A strong emphasis on torque means the engine is amazingly flexible, with good pulling power from as low as 2000 rpm. We found fuel consumption around town to be in the 12 to 14 litres per hundred kilometres range. The sound of the new 911’s engine is brilliant. The legend continues; Porsche 911 is approaching its 50th birthday and has appealed to many generations of drivers. Those who love the concept seem sure to be more than satisfied with this new generation. Those who have never previously owned one should perhaps treat themselves to the experience. A price tag of $268,550 for the Carrera S with the optional PDK automatic transmission may seem high, but compare it with supercars from Italy and its German competitors and it almost seems like a bargain.

AFTER

orsche’s iconic 911 has its first all-new body in years. Obviously the new 911 looks similar to previous models. If it didn’t, heads would roll in the design department after Porsche purists invaded the studio. However, it does have a distinctive shape that’s well-suited to the second decade of this millennium. Stand the old 911 and the new side by side and you can see the body is now larger. It also sits on a new stiffer platform to further firm up handling, as well as adding safety in a crash. The wheelbase has been lengthened and the track widened. There’s slightly more interior space in the 911 than in the superseded model due to the larger body. The front seats are large and support well. Though there are four seats, those in the back of the 911 are best used only by those who are desperate for transport and simply can’t get to their destination any other way. Having said that, the deep luggage compartment in the front of the 911 absorbs a lot more luggage than you anticipate and can even manage a mid-sized

Coach gets fresh chance to try for Glory The decision to extend Egan’s tenure as coach of the Glory was a nobrainer, according to Balakis. The Glory went into the season with a skeleton playing list after the defection of all but two starters from last year’s squad. Egan never complained, working with the personnel he had at his disposal and unearthing a few gems along the way. ‘‘Are we happy with where we finished?’’ Balakis said. ‘‘I say absolutely, considering where we came from. ‘‘We were left with two players from last year’s senior team after a few jumped the boat for what they thought would be greener pastures. ‘‘Charlie had to build a brand new team and we’re really happy with the way they’ve gelled in the second half of the year.’’

BY LANCE JENKINSON YARRAVILLE Glory has improved its prospects by reappointing coach Charlie Egan for a further two seasons. The one-time Socceroo has agreed to a contract extension that will see him remain at the club until the end of 2014. The news comes hot on the heels of the Glory’s stunning 2-1 win over Sydenham Park on the road at Keilor Lodge Reserve in the last round of the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 3 season. The Glory played to perfection the role of party crashers, denying the Reds a title on a dramatic final day. ‘‘We beat Sydenham and we beat them comfortably,’’ Glory president Jon Balakis told the Weekly. ‘‘We had the majority of the play until the final six or seven minutes. We upset the party.’’ Two stunning goals were the potion for the Glory. John Little put the Glory in front when he chested the ball down to his feet and volleyed a dipping ball into the top corner. The Reds got back on level terms, but had no answer to Yared Hailemelekot’s long-range wonder strike. ‘‘It was a cracker,’’ Balakis said. ‘‘It

The goalkeeper pulled off a number of important saves to show why he will be a man in demand during the off-season.

‘‘The guy is a star,’’ Balakis said. ‘‘He could be playing in the Victorian Premier League or even the A League, in my opinion. He made five or six great saves and the Sydenham coach [Sash Becvinovski] came up and said, ‘Where did you get him from?’’’ The Glory finished mid-table,

seventh with seven wins, seven draws and eight losses after a shaky start. It was no coincidence that its results improved from the moment Steve Georgakakis arrived from Western Suburbs. ‘‘He gave us a tremendous lift in the midfield,’’ Balakis said.

Come in spinner, Saints say in show of faith BY LANCE JENKINSON SPINNING all-rounder Jake Buttigieg is just 20, but he’s been handed the reins of west B1 club St Andrews in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association. In a massive show of faith by the Saints, the former Melton third XI player was named senior coach. The appointment aligns with the policy of a club eager to re-energise an ageing player list. Buttigieg said that initially he was apprehensive about how the veteran players would react to taking orders from someone so young in the game. But he said it had been all positive since his introduction. ‘‘It was more so for the first couple of sessions,’’ Buttigieg said. ‘‘It’s interesting seeing how guys respond to being told what to do by a 20-year-old. It’s a different perspective. ‘‘We’re just trying to be more professional in everything we do.’’ The Saints will turn a new chapter this summer.

For too long, the club has stuck with the tried and true. The key coaching appointment signals the start of a rejuvenation process. The cornerstone to the club’s rebuild is reinstalling a junior section that has been nonexistent for years.

‘It’s interesting seeing how guys respond to being told what to do by a 20-year-old. It’s a different perspective. We’re just trying to be more professional in everything we do.’ – coach Jake Buttigieg Buttigieg has been in the Saints camp for three years but hazards a guess it’s more than a decade since the club fielded an under-age side. The Saints have worked hard during the offseason to attract a new wave of juniors, running training sessions at a local school. One result will

be the appearance of an under-11 side. ‘‘We needed to start building from the bottom up,’’ Buttigieg says. The coach has his sights set on reaching the first XI finals. The Saints haven’t featured in the finals since their admission to the VTCA. Buttigieg is ‘‘quietly confident’’ his side can get the monkey off its back in 2012-13. ‘‘The feeling around the place is very positive,’’ he said. ‘‘The first XI is going to be very competitive.’’ Buttigieg, an off-spinner and middle-order batsman, joined the Saints as a teenager. He was duchessed by the club for some time, but resisted the early advances. When he finally buckled, he was left wondering what took him so long. ‘‘My uncle has been on the committee and he was trying to get me down for a while,’’ he said. ‘‘They were keen to recruit me four or five years ago, but I was playing sub-district thirds at the time. ‘‘They were definitely persistent and since I joined, I’ve fallen in love with the club. It’s a great bunch of blokes.’’

Forward Scott Drysdale was the ‘most valuable player’ in the men’s youth league 2 and was joined in the all-star team by guard Param Singh. The youth league 2 women hit the mark, too, with Jenna Conroy selected as forward in the all-star team, while Randy Shanklin was ‘coach of the year’. Marie Costello’s contributions were recognised; she claimed the Lino Di Paola ‘volunteer of the year’ award.

Cyclist bags first Oz race

Jets find coach in backyard

JAYCO AIS rider Calvin Watson took out the 71st staging of the Footscray Cycling Club’s annual bikebug.com Midlands Tour at Anglesea on Saturday. One of Victoria’s road classics, the tour is held in honour of the late ‘Tas’ Johnson, who reached the pinnacle of cycling by representing Australia at the 1934 Empire Games and the 1936 Olympics. In the 120km feature race, 19-year-old Watson proved that fortune favours the brave by succeeding in an early breakaway. Watson, a Frankston resident, returned after six months of racing in Europe, and this was his first race for the under-23 feeder team for Orica Greenedge. ‘‘It’s my first race in Australia so it’s great to get the win,’’ he said. ‘‘When the break went so early I thought it would be a big ask, but all the guys in the break were willing to work and once our lead was out to over two minutes, we started to relax a bit. ‘‘The race really lit up with about five laps to go, when John West rider Matt Clark and I got away together and I thought that would be the race. But, to his credit, Jason Spencer bridged across and brought a few other riders with him. ‘‘In the last few laps a lots of guys were in survival mode and really feeling the hill. ‘‘It really busted up then.’’ Watson and Spencer crossed in first and second — 27 seconds ahead of third-placed Clark. In the teams classification, John West Cycling took the win, with its rider, Clark, taking the king of the mountains classification. As well as the main event, a separate women’s race and masters A, B and C grade races were held, with 32-year-old Stephen Lane clinching the A grade honours. Holden Cycling Team rider Miranda Griffiths took out the women’s race. Richard Longmire took out the B grade and Matt Hand the C grade.

THE Western Jets searched extensively for a new coach in conjunction with AFL Victoria, but the whole time the right man was under their noses. The Jets did not have to stray too far from home to find that their assistant coach of the past two seasons, Torin Baker, was the perfect fit for the position. Baker, who only a fortnight ago played for Spotswood in a gut-wrenching one-point Western Region Football League division 1 grand final loss to the Altona Vikings, will replace longtime head coach Steven Kretiuk, who left after five years. ‘‘We’re really, really pleased with the appointment,’’ Jets region manager Shane Sexton told the Weekly yesterday. ‘‘It’s another point of view, another perspective and we expect him to do a really good job.’’ The Jets were able to speed up the process because of the early notice Kretiuk gave. He told the club before the end of the season he intended to leave. The club wasted no time advertising the position and working with AFL human resources to get a shortlist of suitable candidates. Final interviews were last week and Baker got the nod on Monday. His CV as a player and coach stacked up favourably. That he was involved with the Jets during the past four years in varying roles from fitness adviser to assistant coach at both under16 and under-18 levels was a bonus. ‘‘Torin brings a fantastic football playing and coaching background,’’ Sexton said. As a player, Baker is a hard-at-it onballer. At his peak, he was playing with the Werribee Tigers in the Victorian Football League. Originally from Geelong, he won a Mathieson Medal for best and fairest in the Geelong Football League, came runner-up in the Maskell Medal in the Hampden Football League and was best on ground in last year’s WRFL grand final when Spotswood overcame Albion. Baker was a player-coach at Camperdown and

Moving on: Torin Baker (above back right and below) playing for Spotswood, battles with Hoppers Crossing midfielder Brad Murphy during this year’s WRFL finals. Picture: Cathy Jackson playing assistant coach at St Joseph’s before making an impact with the Jets during the past four years. He worked as the midfield coach this season after a year as defensive coach. Baker arrived at the Jets with a physical education teaching background. Sexton is thrilled with the appointment, saying it would freshen up the club and give it a chance to open a new chapter. He said the club was in good shape because of Kretiuk’s sustained hard work. ‘‘Steven’s been here five years, but if you ran a line through win-loss ratios and our performances, he ranks with all the Jets coaches in my time in terms of outcomes.’’

Seagulls and Bulldogs agree to go separate ways in 2014 WILLIAMSTOWN and the Western Bulldogs have come to an amicable solution for their impending alignment split in the Victorian Football League. The two clubs will remain engaged for 2013 before going their separate ways in 2014, a year earlier than the current agreement stipulated. It means the Seagulls will go it alone for the first time since 1999, as Frankston and Port Melbourne currently do. The Bulldogs will enter their own side into the VFL in two years’ time, with an intention of playing home

games at the Whitten Oval and throughout the Bulldogs’ heartland. A stand-alone format will give the club greater control over developing its players, says Bulldogs chief executive Simon Garlick. ‘‘The establishment of a stand-alone VFL side has been a clear strategic objective for the club and it’s very pleasing that this will become a reality in 2014,’’ Garlick said. ‘‘This outcome is consistent with our increased focus and commitment to the development of our exciting young players. ‘‘The decision supports our aim to

build and develop our team from within and the ultimate delivery of sustainable success, on and off the field.’’ Williamstown has twice partnered with AFL clubs. It was aligned with Collingwood from 2000 to ’07 and has been with the Bulldogs in both a partial and total alignment since. Seagulls general manager Brendan Curry says his club will revert to being stand-alone in time for its 150th season in 2014. ‘‘The new agreement for the 2013 season is a significant result for the

Seagulls and we are excited by the opportunities it will bring for the club as we transition into a stand-alone model,’’ he said. ‘‘We are looking forward to a successful season next year in partnership with the Dogs off the back of the great opportunities which arose for our VFL-listed players in the second half of 2012.’’ Meanwhile, Adam Potter will return to Williamstown next season after two seasons as senior coach of the Coburg Tigers. Potter will have a varied role from assisting senior coach Peter German to

list management and recruiting. He was coach of the Seagulls development side three years ago. ‘‘Peter German is a great coach,’’ Potter said. ‘‘I learnt a lot from him in 2010 and he supported me in taking the role I’ve had over the past two years at Coburg. ‘‘It’s an exciting time for Williamstown, as they have a very young and talented list and I’m looking forward to working with players from both Williamstown and the Western Bulldogs.’’ — Lance Jenkinson
