Have your say Truganina Explosives Reserve is a 16.559 ha area of Victoria Crown land at the mouth of Laverton Creek in Altona, on the inner western shore of Port Philip Bay. In 2000, after an extensive community campaign to save the site from sale, Hobsons Bay City Council was appointed as Committee of Management of the site. The Council was charged with the responsibility to establish an Advisory Committee for the site, and to develop a Coastal Management Plan to guide the conversion of the site to a public park. The Council now seeks feedback from community members on the draft Truaganina Explosives Reserve Coastal Management Plan. The plan is available at www.hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay Any comments on the draft plan should be submitted to the Council’s Parks Department on 9932 1000 or at parks@hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au by 5.00pm on Thursday, 6th December 2012.

SARAH HARRIS QUE SERA

OUR COVER: Once left for dead after a vicious assault, David Mitchell is now helping educate young people about the consequences of alcoholfuelled violence. Story: 10-11 Picture: Marco DeLuca

Just a bit too long in the sweet tooth MERICA awoke last week to the news that the makers of the iconic Twinkie snack bar were going out of business. It coincided, by strange chance, with the third anniversary of the demise of a uniquely Australian product. After 62 years of continuous production, the confectionery giant Nestle announced, in late November 2009, it was a wrap for the Polly Waffle, with a spokeswoman declaring “no one buys it any more”. For those of us who identified keenly with these nubbly old bars with their marshmallow centres, the extinction was sad. As shelves were cleared to make way for slicker, more contemporary confectionery, I ruminated gloomily about use-by dates. It didn’t help to discover the media studies class I’d been asked to address that week was labouring under a serious misnomer about their special guest. The students’ disappointment was acute when they realised I was not the erstwhile blonde, totally telegenic Sarah Harris of Channel 9 reporter fame. Returning somewhat crestfallen to the office, I observed morosely to colleagues it was as if I were the Polly Waffle incarnate. In an attempt to cheer me, two of them set off on a hazardous road trip to secure the last Polly Waffles in captivity. They returned triumphant with three bars found under a dusty counter in a shop in Urana in the Riverina. Now, after three years of them sitting in the cabinet with heirloom china, it’s time to let go. So I’ve posted one to Julia, one to Tony and the third on eBay under “rare, iconic Polly Waffle”, with proceeds to go to the Cancer Council. Admittedly, it’s now two years after its bestbefore date, but isn’t this just the golden age of Polly Waffle?

Unkindest cuts to ‘people’s uni’ BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK IVAN Valderrama is the human face of the crisis facing Melbourne’s west over the state government’s $300 million TAFE funding cuts. Speaking at a community meeting in Newport last Thursday, the Colombian migrant said he feared for those who couldn’t afford to study English as a second language (ESL) from next year. Victoria University teacher Anne Dowling, who will next year lose her job, said fees for ESL courses in 2013 would more than double. Mr Valderrama, who will this year complete his English certificate IV at VU’s St Albans campus, said the course had enabled him to lead a new life. Now able to speak English, he intends to study mechanical engineering at the University of Melbourne and work in the science or engineering sector. “I think that without these courses I wouldn’t be applying next year for a higher

education course. For me, this [ESL] course was vital,” he said. Victorian TAFE Association executive director David Williams described the TAFE cuts as ‘‘absolutely immoral’’. The cuts include $170 million in the removal of full service provider [FSP] funding for things such as counselling services, disability liaison officers and libraries. “The government hopes that a substantial amount of [a further] $130 million can be recovered in increased student fees,” Mr Williams said. “So, as well as many TAFE course fees increasing substantially, a wide variety of courses will no longer be offered in many TAFEs across Victoria — for example, in areas such as business administration, hospitality, retail, events management, sport and recreation.’’ Mr Williams said fees for government-subsidised diplomas would rise to between $3000 and

Anton Mayer slams the cuts. $8500 a year at most TAFEs; the average probably $3500-$4000 a year. The VTA had called for the annual $170 million FSP funding to be reinstated, but it was clear this would not happen, he said. LeadWest chief executive Anton Mayer told the meeting that Melbourne’s west would bear the brunt of the cuts. He said the region historically had lower levels of year 12 completion. “This is

particularly the case in Brimbank, Hobsons Bay, Melton and Wyndham. ‘‘Unemployment is particularly high among people born in non-English-speaking countries at 10.6 per cent within the region.” A petition of more than 28,000 signatures against the cuts will be presented to State Parliament this week. National Tertiary Education Union president and Friends of Victoria University spokesman Paul Adams said VU was the people’s university. ‘‘Its role, traditionally, has been to provide access for a diverse range of people and communities who would not normally gain access to education.’’ He said the VU TAFE cuts of about $40 million represented a quarter of the institution’s revenue. ‘‘VU has been hardest hit because it is an institution that supports students from low socioeconomic backgrounds.’’

A SERIAL offender responsible for the highest number of odour complaints in Brooklyn could be stripped of its operating licence. Environment Protection Authority Victoria has given Australian Tallow two weeks to explain why its licence should not be suspended. The deadline passed on Friday. Odour monitoring has confirmed Australian Tallow is the major source of odour in Brooklyn, with Brooklyn Meats, Australian Skin and Hide, and Transpacific Waste Management (Brooklyn Landfill) as other potential minor sources. An EPA update to the Brooklyn Community Reference Group (BCRG) confirmed that Australian Tallow continues to discharge odours in breach of its pollution abatement notice (PAN). “Odours have been confirmed and traced to the premises on multiple occasions. Since July this year, the site appears to have regressed somewhat in addressing odour issues at the site.” Last year, Australian Tallow was convicted and fined $70,000 over offensive odours and the discharge of animal-derived fat from the Brooklyn rendering facility into Kororoit Creek. EPA has slapped the company with a notice of contravention, launched an investigation into compliance with the current PAN, and sent the show-cause letter. On the Nose community group president Bruce Light said the company had long been a cause of concern for residents. EPA metro manager Richard Marks said most businesses in the Brooklyn area were legitimate, but the way they operated was a concern. “We’ve got some major odour issues in the area.” At an August BCRG meeting, new Australian Tallow Producers CEO Peter Morley said the company had spent more than $1 million on odour management steps including bio filters, upgraded waste water processing and “developing a plan and culture to manage our environment”. “The goal is zero odour, but at this point I can’t predict how long that will take.”

Tear it down: street sign honours paedophile BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK A MOTHER and daughter are petitioning to change the name of an Altona Meadows street named after paedophile Catholic priest Victor Rubeo. Rubeo, 78, died on December 16 last year, the day he was meant to front a committal hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on 30 child sex abuse charges allegedly committed against twin boys at Laverton. Point Cook woman Christine Dunsmore (nee Squires) and her mother Jen Austin (nee Squires) have lodged a petition with Hobsons Bay Council to change the name of Rubeo Avenue. Rubeo was a priest in the parish of Laverton from 1969-72. The parish takes in St Martin de Porres at Laverton. Before coming to St Martin de Porres, Rubeo assisted at St Mary’s in Altona. Ms Dunsmore said that when she was 14 her father had died and Father Rubeo was a frequent visitor to her home. ‘‘He just had a strong influence on my mother, especially when she became a widow. He was around our house a lot and my brothers were altar boys within the Laverton parish as well. ‘‘He was a paedophile and he shouldn’t be revered in any way, shape or form. I know the pain and suffering he’s caused the victims that I know, not to mention the ones I don’t know.’’ Ms Dunsmore said she decided to petition to change the name of the avenue because of her friendship with Tony Hersbach. Mr Hersbach was 42 when he told his wife, Lu, that Rubeo had abused him from the age of 11 to 18 at Laverton. ‘‘From ages 11-15, Rubeo lived just a few doors from our place in Ulm Street, Laverton,’’ Mr Hersbach said. ‘‘The abuse took place in his house in Ulm Street. From 15-18, Rubeo moved to a presbytery in Pearce Street, Laverton, next to the current St Martin de Porres church. He also abused me there on numerous occasions.’’ Even after the abuse, Rubeo continued to be a dominating influence in Mr Hersbach’s family life, until he was 42.

Hear our plea: Christine Dunsmore and her mother Jen Austin want Hobsons Bay Council to change this offending name. Mr Hersbach said he first reported Rubeo to the archdiocese on August 10, 1994. ‘‘He actually offered to resign and the church refused to accept his resignation. They left him in his parish at Boronia for a further two and a half years.’’ It was only when a Doveton woman filed a police complaint about Rubeo that he admitted to ‘‘a couple of minor offences’’ against Mr Hersbach and his twin brother Will. In October 1996, Rubeo pleaded guilty in Ringwood Magistrates Court to two counts of indecent assault against the Hersbach twins. He was given a two-year good behaviour bond. ‘‘He walked out with no conviction,’’ Mr Hersbach said. ‘‘It represented a very very small part of the truth.’’

Last year, police laid 30 new charges against Rubeo — 24 allegedly committed against Mr Hersbach and six against his brother. Ms Austin said that when she found out about Rubeo she felt sick, angry and betrayed. ‘‘I totally, totally trusted him. I felt just totally totally ill and betrayed, and I have witnessed what it’s done to Tony and his brother. ‘‘When Rubeo sent me a Christmas card, sort of testing the waters after he was taken from whatever parish he was in and was taken out of practising as a priest, I just ripped it up. ‘‘He has betrayed and exploited so many people in this Laverton area and so many people have said to me, ‘It’s not right that his name is up there’. ‘‘And that’s how I feel. ‘‘When I see that I just feel like pulling it down.

No apple a day, and the doctor’s away BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK ABOUT 1200 prep students in the west will miss out on school entry health checks because of inadequate state government funding. The ‘school entrant health questionnaire’, which detects health issues including autism, epilepsy, and ear, eye and speech problems, has been scrapped at 15 western suburbs schools. Children at Williamstown, Williamstown North and Kingsville primary schools are among those affected. Vulnerable children will be at risk of having health problems go undetected, says Williamstown North Primary School principal Jim Cahill. ‘‘The cuts are very disappointing, ’’ he said. ‘‘It puts some of our very young, vulnerable students at a greater risk. ‘‘Early identification and screening is obviously critical to be able to put supported frameworks in place for those students. ‘‘It means we might not pick up those risk indicators as early as we would like to at times, such as any underlying medical issues or health

It is estimated that 18 primary schools in Melbourne’s west may miss out on this essential service, resulting in about 1200 prep-aged students missing out on a face-to-face nurse’s examination. ‘‘The health of our children should not be the subject of a lucky dip. It’s imperative that the Baillieu government provides adequate resources to fund this program. Mr Dixon said the questionnaire was voluntary, ‘‘and obviously when things are voluntary

you cannot guarantee results’’. ‘‘It is up to schools whether they want to participate in the questionnaire or not,’’ he said. Mr Dixon’s spokesman Ashley Gardiner said there had been no cuts to frontline services. “In a small number of schools in the western metropolitan region, assessments are currently being done on the basis of teacher identification and referral to the department’s regional nurse manager to ensure no child’s health, developmental concerns or delays go undetected.”

Seeking answers: Michael Sergi wants the council to allow development on his land. July 2004 and promptly shelved. Why has Hobsons Bay not acted on the report of the consultants it has contracted?” As the Weekly exclusively reported last September, Mr Sergi hopes to form a consortium and build a truck wash on the 40-hectare estate, which was rezoned light industrial in 1954.

Land investment turns sour ANGRY landowners from Altona’s Burns Road estate were expected to descend on last night’s Hobsons Bay Council meeting, demanding to know why their land has remained fallow since the late 1920s. A group of up to 200 landholders, spearheaded by Laverton North business owner Michael Sergi, believe the council has not helped them make something of their investment. The land was zoned residential in 1927 and subdivided into some 550, 600-square-metre lots. An estate caveat dictates that land under two hectares cannot be developed. However, a real estate agent advertised for sale at least one lot under two hectares, with unsuspecting buyers being unaware they can never build on it. Mr Sergi said the council had been ‘‘stealing rates’’ and had ‘‘failed the people of Altona’’. ‘‘In 1997, the council commissioned Ratio planning and development consultants to produce a structure plan for the Burns Road industrial estate,’’ he said. ‘‘The report recommended a ‘unit trust’ scheme where individual lots would be pooled to form a minimum two hectares for development. ‘‘The report was presented to landowners in

Picture: Michael Copp

To date, he has spent more than $1 million battling the council without progressing his plans. Questions put to last night’s meeting include: ‘‘Why has the council told landowners that their land is ‘useless’ and a ‘bad investment’ and yet continues to levy rates on the same land?’’

A DISPUTE between two Hobsons Bay councillors is scheduled to be heard over five days at the Victorian and Civil Administrative Tribunal, some time after March 22. The dispute, which has cost ratepayers $110,000 to date, relates to a complaint by Cr Peter Hemphill against Cr Tony Briffa, alleging misconduct in emails to former Mobil public relations adviser Maureen Short. In the emails, Cr Briffa said Ms Short should be sacked and ‘‘any goodwill gained from our meeting at Mobil . . . has been completely erased and the gloves are now off’’. On August 11, 2011, an independent councillor conduct panel found Cr Briffa had breached the council’s code of conduct. He was ordered to apologise, undertake mentoring and undergo counselling. Cr Hemphill’s subsequent complaint, alleging serious misconduct over the same matter, and the adequacy of Cr Briffa’s apology, will be decided by VCAT. After Monday’s VCAT appearance, Cr Briffa said: ‘‘If Peter Hemphill is so confident of success, I challenge him to pay all the legal costs personally if he loses.’’ Cr Hemphill did not respond to the Weekly’s request for comment.

Man jailed over online sex crime BY NICK TOSCANO

Not a drop wasted Work on a $6.5 million water security project began last week, with the turning of the first sod at Newport’s Paisley Park. Hobsons Bay mayor Angela Altair (pictured with federal Gellibrand MP Nicola Roxon) said stormwater from drainage systems would be filtered through a wetland or biofilter then collected in a pond or underground tanks and pumped to local sports grounds for irrigation. “Stormwater harvesting points will be built at Laverton Park, Paisley Park and Williamstown Cricket Ground,” Cr Altair said. “The scheme will result in up to 184 megalitres, or almost 74 Olympic-sized swimming pools of water, being saved each year.”

G5568741AA-a28Nov©FCNVIC

A LAVERTON father of three has been jailed after police caught him going to a suburban train station to meet a girl he had groomed online for sex. Donald Dowdle, 46, had made contact with an undercover police officer posing as a 13-year-old on an internet chat site more than 20 times in three weeks. Using a pseudonym, Dowdle told ‘Caitlin’ he thought that age was just a number and he asked her to be his girlfriend. On November 5, the County Court heard that Dowdle requested pictures of the teen and sent sexually explicit messages. Dowdle repeatedly told the girl that she should hide their relationship from her mother. He also indicated that he found a girl in a school uniform ‘‘sexy’’. Judge Sue Pullen described Dowdle’s behaviour as totally unacceptable. ‘‘You said you had thought sometimes about kissing a 13-year-old and asked if it made

you ‘sound like a sicko wanting to kiss a girl that age’. ‘‘The facts in this case, in my opinion, are most serious and disturbing,’’ she said. Dowdle was arrested last December when he went to Seaford train station to meet the girl after sending 15 text messages. During police questioning, he insisted that he had no intention of having sex with a minor and that it was ‘‘just a little bit of fun on the computer’’. He was not kept in custody. Dowdle pleaded guilty to using a carriage service to procure a person under 16 for sexual activity. Defence lawyer Kristina Kothrakis said Dowdle had had a troubled childhood and suffered from depression. An expert report stated he did not meet the criteria for being a paedophile but was assessed to be a moderate risk of reoffending. Dowdle was sentenced to two years’ jail, but had his term reduced to four months. He has also been registered as a sex offender.

ALTONA Meadows woman Mairead Ashcroft remains angry at the lack of support given when she first told members of the clergy about her sexual abuse as a child. Ms Ashcroft (pictured), who says she was abused by a priest from the ages of 8 to 11, last Friday told Victoria’s inquiry into child sex abuse that she was initially advised not to speak of her ordeal. She first told her parents in 1983 at age 19, Ms Ashcroft told the inquiry. ‘‘The next time that I spoke of the abuse was on 18th May 1999 to the sister . . . I was told not to speak about the abuse to anyone as I might cause someone distress.’’ Victoria Police is seeking to extradite Ms Ashcroft’s alleged abuser, Brother Bernard Hartman, from the US.

Three other people have contacted police, alleging the 73-year-old Marianist priest raped them as children or teenagers in the 1970s. Ms Ashcroft said she was assessed by Sister Angela Ryan from the Catholic Church’s Towards Healing program ‘‘to work out if I was telling the truth’’. Ms Ashcroft told the inquiry that in

a letter dated November 3, 1999, Brother Hartman apologised for the hurt he had caused. In 2002, Ms Ashcroft reported the abuse to police, but by this time Brother Hartman was overseas. Ms Ashcroft has been diagnosed with severe complex post traumatic stress disorder, stemming back to her childhood abuse. She told the inquiry that on December 11, 2011, Vicar General Bishop Les Tomlinson stated: ‘‘The Archdiocese and the Catholic Education Office have checked their records and . . . there is no record of any complaint of abuse having been received.” Ms Ashcroft said: ‘‘Since that time I have been informed that the Marianists have hindered the case and been unco-operative to the point of recently [in] August/September of this year putting Hartman into hiding.’’

Chuffed with chisel Art teacher Leianne Ivankovic (pictured) has launched her first solo exhibition, showcasing her unique style at a Williamstown gallery. ‘‘One day I saw a rubber chisel and found I could move the paint around cleaner and quicker. It gives my paintings a different look,’’ she says. The winner of 27 state art awards, Ivankovic is excited to be showing her paintings of Williamstown and Melbourne city scenes. The exhibition at Williamstown’s Customs Wharf Galleria is open 10am-4pm daily until December 10.

INSIDESTORY After being left for dead in a Moonee Ponds street, David Mitchell has joined the push to teach young people step back and think about the catastrophic consequences of violence. By MELISSA CUNNINGHAM

The good fight T was a mild summer night in 2008 when Gavin and Denise Mitchell were told their son wouldn’t make it through the night. The piercing sound of the phone ringing roused them from their sleep. Each ring, more urgent, more panicked. David Mitchell, then 19, was in an ambulance being rushed to the Royal Melbourne Hospital. What had begun as a night out with friends, would spiral into a year-long nightmare for the promising footballer and his family. Less than a kilometre from their Moonee Ponds home, at a nightclub then known as One Bar, David was king hit from behind after he had attempted to break up a fight between his friends and a group of strangers. As he lay lifeless on the ground, his attacker kicked him in the faceand stomped on his head another three times. His friends dragged his body from the middle of the road the attacker fled down Puckle Street. Doctors would later tell his family his head injuries were consistent with those of a highspeed car accident victim. ‘‘When we arrived at the hospital we were told Dave wasn’t going to make it,’’ Gavin Mitchell says. ‘‘We were told to gather the family. Then there were two or three days where Dave was in a life-and-death situation. After we knew he wasn’t going to die it became, well, what were we going to get back?’’ According to Australian Institute of Health and Welfare research published in 2008, more than 3450 people are brain-damaged as a result of assaults every year. Researchers estimate that 47 per cent of all those who commit violent crimes and 43 per cent of victims of these crimes are under the influence of drugs or alcohol prior to the event. Men under the age of 34 make up the majority of hospital admissions for alcohol-caused assaults. The Mitchell family refused to give up hope. David’s parents and four brothers spent endless days and nights in a vigil beside his bed. When he finally did wake, he didn’t recognise them. He didn’t even know his own name. ‘‘Gradually, day by day, he improved ever so slightly and we just never gave up hope,’’ says Gavin. ‘‘We couldn’t.’’ David spent 12 days in a coma in intensive care, 39 days in post traumatic amnesia and the next nine months of his life in rehabilitation, learning to walk and speak again. He couldn’t walk unaided for months. Now 24, he only got to see what happened in those fateful moments of being attacked during a County Court case in 2009. ‘‘I only know how many strikes, how many stomps it was because I had to sit through the court proceedings watching the CCTV footage,’’ he says. ‘‘All I kept thinking was how can someone have that going through their head. To stand

‘We were told to gather the family. Then there were two or three days where Dave was in a life-and-death situation. After we knew he wasn’t going to die, it became, well, what were we going to get back?’ — Gavin Mitchell on a lifeless body, to stomp on it, continue to flatten, to destroy, to kill . . . I don’t see how it is human to do that.’’ David’s attacker, then 23, had been thrown out of the nightclub earlier. Prior to the attack, he had been involved in a drinking competition with a friend and consumed a bottle of Southern Comfort whiskey and then vodkas at a St Kilda bar. He had walked up to David’s group of friends, claiming he’d been hit with a bottle. David, acting as a peacemaker, intervened. ‘‘I said, ‘Mate it wasn’t any of us. Let’s go upstairs, have a drink and forget it. We shook hands. I don’t remember what happened next.’’ In August 2009, the attacker was sentenced to six years in jail. Denise Mitchell says there were no winners in the ordeal and watching the footage of her son being senselessly beaten was gut-wrenching. ‘‘For me, it shows how quickly a situation can change,’’ she says. ‘‘That Dave was shaking this fellow’s hand and then when he turned he hit him to the ground. It was just horrific. In those minutes that followed this young boy has ruined his own life, his parents’ lives and his grandparents’ lives. ‘‘Your life can change in that moment and there are no winners.’’ After the court case ended, it remained a long, emotional and painful road to recovery for David. His love of playing football was shattered after doctors told him he would never play contact sport again. Then he was forced revise much of what he learned during his carpentry apprenticeship. ‘‘It was demoralising,’’ he says. ‘‘I was six months into my apprenticeship, but when I returned to work a year after the assault I

I had to start again and re-learn everything.’’ David says it wasn’t until this year that his anxiety and trauma began to fade. ‘‘I’m only just feeling like me again,’’ he says. ‘‘People thought I was back to my old self, but I wasn’t. For a long time my trust levels with people would go up and down. I didn’t feel as comfortable going out with mates. I didn’t trust strangers straight away. I would spend nights out looking around, trying to read conversations between people and becoming anxious, thinking something was going to happen.’’ Eighteen months ago David was ready to take a stand for the silent victims. He decided to be a voice for the victims whose lives had been stolen or destroyed by the street violence that has ravaged Australia in recent years. A poignant visit to James Macready-Bryan, the victim of an alcohol-fuelled assault in Melbourne in 2006, led him to become an ambassador for Step Back Think. Mr Macready-Bryan was cornered in a deadend alley before being punched in the face and hitting the ground on his 20th birthday. He suffered brain damage and is now unable to move, talk or feed himself, and lives in a highcare residential centre.

To raise awareness of the devastating impact a single punch can have, his father Andrew Macready-Bryan, family and friends formed Step Back Think in 2008. The campaign, funded by the state government, educates young people to step back and think of the consequences of throwing a single punch. It aims to change attitudes towards street violence. ‘‘When I met James I thought that could have been me. I could have been just a heartbeat. I’ve got to do something about this,’’ he says. ‘‘Its not just a CBD issue; it’s everywhere, it’s wherever there is alcohol or wherever there are two opinions in the one place. It could be at your local suburban football club or the nightclub in the city.’’ Every year for the rest of his life, David will visit a specialist who examines his brain and performs a series of tests to examine how his brain is functioning. Earlier this year, after hearing about a recent fight involving people he knew, David posted on Facebook about the dangers of alcohol-fuelled violence. His status update received more than 150 ‘‘likes’’ in 48 hours. ‘‘I don’t see myself as inspirational or anything

like that. I just want to stop this from happening to somebody else,’’ he says. ‘‘If I can reach just a couple of people through the campaign, force them to think before they act, then I’m happy.’’ David says he plans on raising the profile of Step Back Think among football clubs in the west. During the footy season this year, he spent every Sunday mentoring the St Bernards Football Club under-14 players. His message is simple. ‘‘Always look out for your mates,’’ he says. ‘‘Just walk away and be the bigger person.’’ Tough love for boozy youths Keilor Downs Leading Senior Constable Gerard Dickinson worries about ‘‘an unprecedented increase in street violence in the past five years’’. As a youth resource officer in the west, he mentors more than 400 young offenders and victims of assault or road trauma. It prompts him to observe: ‘‘There’s growing acceptance among young people about the use of recreational drugs.’’ ‘‘Youth are also drinking a lot younger. If you have drugs and alcohol in the mix, violence is just a given. ‘‘Its these attitudes of young people who aren’t prepared to think about the consequences of

their actions that need to change.’’ To curb this type of behaviour, police officers in the west have created a series of diversion programs for youth. They are: ■ Preventing Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth (PARTY) — run in conjunction with The Alfred hospital — is a pre-sentencing condition where offenders aged 18 to 25 visit victims of assault and road trauma in the intensive care unit. ■ Ropes, a crime diversion program for youth under 16, teaches those who have been in trouble with the law about the consequences of their actions. It uses heights and rope-scaling to challenge young offenders and instil a sense of discipline and self-worth. ■ Fit2Drive has schools across the west taking part in a safety initiative that aims to raise awareness of the consequences of drink-driving and risk-taking on the roads. Presentations are given by road trauma victims, firefighters and police officers. For more details on these programs, call 9365 3333.

Madigan’s metal magic ST LEO the Great Primary School pupils were treated to a rare display of the blacksmith trade by Victorian senator John Madigan last Friday. A blacksmith and boilermaker by trade, the Democratic Labor Party senator demonstrated his skills to the Altona North pupils on his portable forge. His visit came about when he was impressed by two of the school’s pupils who performed the ‘Welcome to Country’ at a lecture he was delivering. As a ‘thank you’ to the pupils, Senator Madigan offered to visit the school and talk about his trade and his role as a senator. Senator Madigan made plant hooks and fire pokers and some of the grade 3-6 pupils, had the chance to bang some molten metal into shape. “It was great to see so many students interested in the process of making something with their own hands, as well as interested in my work as a senator,” he said. “I think it’s important to encourage students to pursue any career they want to, be it a tradesman working with their hands, a teacher or even a politician. ‘‘Australia needs good tradesmen and manufacturers as much as it needs good

A flood of support QUILTER Kim Reilly recalls a story about a woman from Hobsons Bay’s flood-ravaged sister city of Buloke in the state’s north-west. The woman, whose home was flooded for the second time in January last year, was mourning the loss of a treasured family quilt. ‘‘She lamented its loss . . . only to find that her son had picked the quilt up and thrown it on top of the wardrobe,’’ Ms Reilly said. She said that after the floods, a group of Hobsons Bay women travelled to Buloke shire to lift the women’s spirits by holding quilting workshops. ‘‘Eighty women turned up and they just kept coming in.’’ Quilts and other handmade crafts created in the workshops feature in an After the Rains exhibition running at Altona’s Joel Gallery until Sunday. The Hands of Friendship quilt, woven by Hobsons Bay quilters, has sold for $1000. Proceeds go to the flood recovery fund. All items are for sale to raise money for the flood victims.

Petite cafe big on flavour HILARY McNEVIN EATING OUT

BEATRIX Address: 688 Queensberry Street, North Melbourne Contact: 9090 7301 Hours: Wednesday-Monday, 9am-4pm (closed Tuesday) Unlicensed

We Beat, You Eat’ is the mantra on the chalkboard in Beatrix, a small cafe on Queensberry Street in North Melbourne. Just three tables inside with a bench across the front window and two tables on the footpath make up Beatrix. The rest of the space is dedicated to a counter displaying delicious cakes and slices made on the premises. Almost two years old, Beatrix keeps things very simple in terms of the menu, but the commitment to serving quality, local produce is outstanding. Order from the blackboard menu — the room is small enough for you to read it from any angle — to the easy-going staff who readily control an occasional queue that can quickly form in the space. There are two

ciabattas up on one board; we order both. These two enormous sandwiches are served on delicious ciabatta bread from Let’s A Loaf bakery in Caroline Springs. ‘The Queen Margot’ is Warialda Galloway Beef, roasted rare, with caramelised onion, gruyere and mustardy rocket leaves, and it comes in two sizes: large ($15) or small ($13.50). The other is the ‘Meat Free’ with warm ricotta from local cheesemakers That’s Amore, on fresh tomato and pesto ($10/$8.50). The sweets are reminiscent of mum’s cooking. There’s a homemade finish to all of them, such as the caramel slice with dark chocolate and hazelnuts ($5) or the ‘Shagg’, a coconut buttercake with buttercream ($8/slice). We settle for a slice of Trez Leche ($8/slice). Traditionally, a Spanish recipe, this plain cake

Temporary carers needed!

Tastefully charming: Beatrix is small in space but big on quality. Picture: Eddie Jim is soaked in three milks — evaporated, condensed and whole milks — topped with cream and fresh raspberries. It’s moist, decadent, sweet, a complete treat. With Allpress coffee — the espresso is slightly bitter but well-rounded with good cream — Beatrix is a great treat in this inner suburb.

Take care of a Seeing Eye Dog and assist someone who is blind to live their life to the full. Seeing Eye Dogs Australia is urgently in need of temporary carers in your area to care for our special dogs while they undergo the final six s months of their advanced training.

‘Tis the season to be K-K-kind By Rebecca Miller

L

ast year at our office Christmas party — which involved a not-so-secretive Kris Kringle — I struck gold. From an agreed budget of $15 I managed to score myself a brightly coloured beach towel, which came in handy during the summer break. I also like to think I gave a good gift: recipe books. However, not all office Kris Kringles have a happy ending — as I found out with a quick poll of my colleagues and their gift giving and receiving experiences. A 27-year-old female said she once received a rubber chicken with a disgusting yolk oozing from its mouth when its stomach was squeezed. She ironically referred to it as ‘foul’. A 30-something male said his worst office gift was a set of Elvis coasters but his best was an impressive bottle of Jamieson Irish whiskey. To prevent giving someone an unwanted gift, my colleagues advised speaking to others who know the

recipient better to get ideas — or snooping around their desk for clues to their interests. A 30-year-old office worker suggested speaking to the person directly and sussing out their hobbies and likes. As a result of this detective work he gave his Kris Kringle a mixed bag: socks, noodles and Bacardi Breezers. ‘‘The trick with a Kris Kringle gift is to make it appear as though you’ve gone to a lot of trouble and spent a lot of money, even if you haven’t,’’ said a manager. ‘‘Personalised gifts are always well received.’’ If you’re running an office KK on a limited budget, say $20, it can be hard to find a good gift. Some ideas that were popular in our office included an iTunes voucher, chocolates, champagne, a DVD and books. And if your KK is the charitable type, why not stop by Oxfam or Care Australia’s website and buy a chicken or clean water for a person living in poverty.

Alfred Acquaro and family would like to wish you all a very

Merry Christmas & a prosperous New Year!

Here’s a simple dish, able to feed about six people:

Unwrap brunch for hungry brood

Spanish omelette Ingredients: 300g waxy potatoes, salted and thinly sliced 5 eggs ½ medium onion, finely sliced 1 cup peas, frozen or fresh ½ red capsicum, diced 1 tomato, diced Method: Soften (but not brown) potato slices in 2 tbsp olive oil, add onion and put lid on pan. Move them around in pan to prevent browning but cook through. Turn up heat and add another 1 tbsp olive oil, add whisked eggs and other vegies. Turn heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes or until there’s no liquid egg left on top. Turn omelette by flipping onto a dinner plate, then sliding it back into the pan. Cook for another five minutes.

amily or friends arriving at your house on Christmas morning are usually starving. Either they’ve had to travel some distance or have spent the early morning opening gifts at their house or rounding up everyone and packing the car to get to yours. And it’s become tradition that Christmas lunch doesn’t get served until mid-afternoon so providing brunch to keep hunger at bay is a very welcome offering. It needs to be light enough not to spoil the upcoming feast but substantial enough to arrest drops in blood sugar levels (and we all know what that produces!).

Details to delight Starting off small doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you have to miss out on a property packed with delightful features, writes Tegan Forder f a property could have a sunny disposition then this singlefronted Victorian would surely have one. A cream and white picket fence, mature shady tree and bright red front door create a cheery welcome to the house which is ideal for a small family or couple wanting extra space. Little details such as the address in frosted glass atop the front door, high ceilings, old-fashioned light switches and original fireplaces, along with intricate ceilings and polished timber floors, make for an appealing interior. The wide hallway has a decorative archway and skylight for maximum light. Off here is the main bedroom with chic grey-blue walls, plantation shutters, and two sets of built-in wardrobes either side a fireplace. Further down the hall is the second bedroom with built-in wardrobe and shelving and the same grey-blue walls.

Class and convenience his lovely Edwardian property has plenty of street appeal which gets even better inside.

Family friend has a growth spurt Derek Ogden and Ewan Kennedy road test the Subaru Liberty Exiga s the tribe becoming too big for the faithful family sedan? Look no further than the Subaru Liberty Exiga seven-seater wagon. Based on the Liberty platform, the Exiga started life as a six-seater wagon. Now, due to popular demand says the maker Subaru, an extra place has been set for someone in the 2013-model vehicle, which went on sale in July. The seven-seater comes in two models — the Liberty Exiga 2.5i, which includes a DVD, and the top spec Liberty Exiga 2.5i Premium (our test vehicle), which adds leather trim, satellite navigation, reversing camera, Bluetooth compatibility, eight-way electric driver and front passenger seats, and a new 17-inch alloy wheel design and new-look door mirrors. The former is priced from $37,990, the latter costs from $42,490, both plus on-road costs. With a model upgrade midway through 2012, the entry-level Exiga added a reversing camera plus dusk-sensing headlights and steering wheel Bluetooth controls, voice command, audio streaming, USB connectivity and AUX jack.

I

Liberty Exiga 2.5i’s factory-fitted 4.3-inch LCD screen displays audio information and reversing camera images. A saving grace on long, drawn-out journeys is the roof-mounted, fold-down remote-control DVD system with infra-red wireless headphones which can keep even the most tiresome travellers in the two rows of rear seats occupied. With all seven seats occupied, there’s not much space in the back for two people’s luggage, let alone that for more than half a dozen. With the rear two rows of seats folded there’s a reasonably flat surface to take longer and more bulky items. Designers, it seems, didn’t spend much time on the exterior, the Exiga having a boxy, oldfashioned look. The high sides, however, do make for plenty of head room – 40mm better than the Liberty – and good visibility. Expect to get fuel consumption of 8.6 litres per 100 kilometres. Once you go past the dated ‘maxi taxi’ exterior, the Liberty Exiga has much to offer, especially for the larger family, small sports team or groups of friends.

Ugly duckling: Subaru Exiga makes up for its visual shortcomings in comfort and fuel economy.

A’s fend off threatening Bees

Wests still don’t know how to lose

BY LANCE JENKINSON

WEST Newport has kept its unbeaten record intact with a successful run chase against bottom-of-the-ladder Gellibrand in the Williamstown and District Cricket Association A1 turf at Loft Reserve on Saturday. Wests easily passed their target of 208 and remain one of two unbeaten clubs. They were served well by a 159-run partnership between Nick Jensen (77no) and Trent Jones (78no). The other undefeated team in the WDCA’s top flight is Williamstown Imperials, who hunted down Newport-Digman’s 144, winning by five wickets with Ryan Hinton top-scoring with 46 at Bryan Martyn Oval. Williamstown Colts will stay in the top four for another fortnight despite a two-wicket loss to Wyndhamvale.

ALTONA has survived a tricky encounter with arch-rivals Werribee on the road at Chirnside Park in the Bowls Victoria premier division. The A’s were threatened after the break but steadied to win 93-72. A’s skip Brett Dodd told the Weekly it was no easy assignment venturing into Wyndham territory. ‘‘We knew they’d be fired up,’’ Dodd said, in reference to a number of players who left the Bees to join the A’s in the off season. ‘‘Not only that, they hadn’t lost a game on their home green. They’re in pretty good form as well.’’ A distinct advantage the Bees have over most opponents is their artificial surface. That was almost cancelled out as the A’s have their own ‘plastic’ surface to train on. Still, the A’s play all their matches on grass, and Dodd was impressed with his side’s ability to adapt. ‘‘They’re a 20-shot better side at home, for sure,’’ he said of his former club. ‘‘Our blokes more than matched them and kicked away when it got quicker late in the day.’’ Brenton Coad produced a stunning performance alongside Ben Loughlin, Farris Derrij and Brett Foley. The ‘‘on-fire’’ A’s quartet took it to Mick O’Neil in a 32-15 thrashing. Dodd’s own rink brought down the in-form Ben Major. ‘‘I said to our guys before the

game that Benny’s rink had probably been their best performing and if we could get on top of them it would go a long way towards the side winning the game,’’ he said. David Zitter made it three from four rinks with a 27-19 edging of Snowy Barker. The A’s have hit top gear after a slow start. They have a tough run-in to Christmas and welcome the challenges coming their way, starting with Essendon at home on Saturday. ‘‘At the start of the year we were all over the place with a lot of new blokes,’’ Dodd said. ‘‘We think it’s going to be a good test to see where we’re at.’’ Meanwhile, Footscray-Yarraville has moved to the top of the division 1 section 2 ladder with a five-shot win over previous ladder leader Deer Park in a western derby.

Spin the saviour as Dogs spill catches BY LANCE JENKINSON FOOTSCRAY United had to hold on for dear life to beat Doutta Stars by 16 runs in a Victorian Turf Cricket Association north division thriller at Scovell Reserve on Saturday. The Bulldogs entered day two well and truly on the back foot, defending a mere 189 runs — of which the Stars had already picked off 54 overnight — and facing batsmen-friendly conditions. The Dogs stuck to their guns to bowl the visitors out for 173 with spinner Tarique Jeffrey snaring five wickets. ‘‘To turn it around and win is a great result for us,’’ Jeffrey said. ‘‘It was really good conditions to bat and we came in and fought really well.

Moore, who was firing on 31 not out overnight. But they were not helping their own cause, dropping a

succession of chances and a missed stumping. Two wickets to Geeth Silva after the tea break provided the impetus for a memorable Bulldogs win. The win would not have been possible but for middle-order batsman Steve McKay, who was outstanding with 92 on the opening day to boost the Bulldogs’ spirits. ‘‘It allowed us to set a decent total to bowl at,’’ Jeffrey said. ‘‘That was one of the differences in the game.’’ A further 16 wickets were taken in 39 overs before stumps. When the Bulldogs were rolled for 93 in their second dig, it left the door ajar for an outright Stars win. The Stars had eight overs to make 110, but fell short to finish on 6-60. ‘‘It turned out to be one of the best game we’ve played,’’ said Jeffrey.

Lost Dogs bite back

It’s all uphill as Eagles’ grip slips

FOOTSCRAY Edgewater had to settle for a split of their Victorian Premier Cricket Bush Bash matches in Horsham on Saturday. The first XIs of all clubs were spread across country Victoria to play two Twenty20 matches each. The Bulldogs lost their afternoon match to Geelong by five wickets but hit back in the evening game to beat neighbours Essendon by six wickets. In the early match, the Bulldogs opted to set a total, compiling 6-130 off their 20 overs. Captain Dean Russ was the cornerstone, smashing 54 to prop up an otherwise misfiring top order. Dylan Kight (15) and Travis Dean (28 not out) scored much-needed late runs to add some respectability. The Cats had little trouble chasing down the target, doing so with 10 balls to spare after 61 to Hayden Butterworth. The best part of the back-to-back T20 format is that the Bulldogs didn’t have to wait long to redeem themselves and were straining at the leash to get a taste of Essendon. The Bombers made a respectable 7-148, despite the Dogs being switched on in the field, removing both openers with run outs. The Bulldogs reached the target with an over to spare with Russ leaving a lasting impression on the locals, scoring 84 not out to take his season tally to 385 at a stunning 64.17. Wes Robinson (26) and Tallan Wright (19no) also played their part. The T20 strand of the home-andaway season continues in Premier Cricket with three to be played in the first five days next month. The Bulldogs face Melbourne at Merv Hughes Oval on Saturday at 2.30pm then go to Hawthorn-Monash University on Sunday, starting at the same time. — Lance Jenkinson

YARRAVILLE will have to serve up its best and then some to chase down an imposing target set by Werribee in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association. The Eagles will need to make 286 on day two at Chirnside Park on Saturday to maintain their spot in the southwest group’s top four. They made a solid start with the ball on Saturday, having the Tigers in a spot of bother at 3-55 in pristine batting conditions. But the Tigers fought back on the back of 56 to skipper Shaun Dean and took a stranglehold on the game thanks to contributions from the middle and lower orders. Eagles assistant coach George Shaw could only applaud opponents who took full advantage of the batsmanfriendly track. ‘‘Our boys stuck to the task,’’ he told the Weekly. ‘‘We broke through early but couldn’t get wickets when we needed to towards the end. Werribee obviously batted really well.’’ The Tigers had strength in numbers, nine of their 10 batsmen reaching double figures. Dean was the catalyst for the big score, but his teammates were willing to get their hands dirty once he departed. The stern late resistance surprised the Eagles somewhat. Adam Alifraco came in at No.8 and put up 45, while Jake Purton (34), Wade McCall (32), Stephen Plumridge (28no) and Matthew Thomson (20) made life difficult for the Eagles. ‘‘I thought once we got Shaun out, and he batted really nicely, we might’ve been able to go through them quickly,’’ Shaw said. ‘‘They were 6-170 when we got Shaun out, so I thought by then we might’ve been able to finish them off

Teamwork: Patrick Prestidge jumps for joy as Yarraville wicketkeeper Daniel Torre holds a catch off his bowling. Picture: Shawn Smits not long after. To their credit, a couple of their younger lads batted well towards the end.’’ Patrick Prestidge was the most damaging of the Eagles’ mediumpacers with 3-20, claiming three of the

top four batsmen while being limited to just eight overs by severe cramps. The leg-spinners, Tim McRae and Adam Yates, came in handy when the temperature topped 34-degrees. They

sent down 40 overs between them. McRae finished with 3-80 off 25 overs and claimed the prized scalp of Dean, while Yates had 3-76 off 15. ‘‘They both did their jobs under tough conditions,’’ Shaw said. The Eagles have their backs to the wall, but they’re not down and out. They have the ability to bat deep in the order and you only have to cast your mind back to round four for evidence of that. ‘‘We proved that last game against Malvern when we collapsed to 5-11 and ended up being 8-245,’’ Shaw said. ‘‘We bat deep, which is pleasing from our point of view, and we’ll give ourselves an even-money chance if we bat all day.’’

Seagulls swoop, settle on top LISTON Seagulls have completed a clean sweep of the Asia Pacific Tennis League men’s regular season. The Gulls head into the Victorian conference final as the No.1-ranked club on the back of five victories in five rounds. Their reward for finishing on top of the ladder is questionable as they face the Kooyong Classics in the final at the Kooyong Tennis Club on Friday at

7pm. The Seagulls clinched their berth in the decider with a win over the Dingley Dingoes on Friday night. They took five of the six rubbers, including straight sets wins to Matt Reid and James Lemke in the singles. Top spot was settled on Sunday when the Seagulls swooped on a six rubbers to nil win over the Waverley Warriors. — Lance Jenkinson
