OUR COVER: Inspector Bill Mathers discusses how police officers cope with traumatic scenes. Story: 10-11 Picture: Scott McNaughton

Wanted,” the ad began, “onion peelers: must be fast and well presented”. My heart did a little skip as I translated. Process workers sought for tearfully tedious productionline work — must look neat. Here, surely, was a story. The decrease in classified advertising — the drying-up of the so-called rivers of gold — has had a profound effect on the newspaper industry. But it’s not just the loss of classies’ revenue we journalists who still have our jobs have cause to regret. The classifieds yielded many a yarn and not a few mysteries. Who hasn’t read the classifieds and wondered? Was the size 20 wedding dress never worn because the bride lost weight or the would-be groom before she reached the altar? Behind the lineage rate-induced haiku there were stories in the For Sale, Wanted, and Lost & Found columns. Like the urgent appeal for concrete or tyre swans made by someone seeking to secure one of these sirens’ of ’50s kitsch for the celebrated author Sonya Hartnett. Or the conscience-stricken woman who bought ads to try to track down a shopkeeper she’d stolen from 17 years earlier so she could make recompense. Before the mobile became ubiquitous, criminals used the classifieds to place coded and, sometimes, not so discreet messages, like the armed robber who announced his return to business with the ad: “Badness is back”. The most profound and pivotal human experiences — births, marriages and deaths — have traditionally been telegraphed to the world through the classifieds. Hemingway once said the best story he wrote was just six words: “For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.” Now that’s a slam-dunk classified, or I don’t know my onions.

Luba’s path to mayoral seat clear BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK HOBSONS Bay councillor Luba Grigorovitch is tipped to become the city’s mayor on November 13 after former powerbroker Tony Briffa lost his support base in Saturday’s council election. Cr Angela Altair, re-elected with the highest primary vote (3980) in Strand ward, joins Cr Grigorovitch and two new women on the seven-member council. Cr Grigorovitch, the Altona ALP branch secretary, was returned with the highest primary vote (4509) in Wetlands ward. While her past attempts at becoming mayor or deputy mayor were shot down by Cr Briffa’s voting bloc, Cr Grigorovitch said she ‘‘definitely’’ felt her luck was about to change. Cr Grigorovitch, who is also the Hobsons Bay women’s charter champion, applauded the new gender ratio on the council. ‘‘I think it’s a really good opportunity for the community because we’re going to be one of the very few councils with more women than men and I think it will bring a whole new dynamic to our council, especially given all the directors are still male.’’ While Cr Briffa received the city’s highest quota of 4102 primary votes in Cherry Lake ward — just four votes shy of winning on first preferences — his running mate, John Hogg, who got 2260 primary votes, was defeated by independent Colleen Gates in Wetlands ward. Cr Gates, who polled 1575 primary votes, said she felt that having good values was not gender-based and the whole point of council was being able to work together. ‘‘I’ve said to Tony in the past, and to others, that whatever was going on

Back in: Peter Hemphill

New face: Paul Morgan

In majority: The new women councillors, from left, Colleen Gates, Sandra Wilson, Luba Grigorovitch and Angela Altair. with council in the previous group has got nothing to do with me and it’s not something I’m interested in getting involved in.’’ Two other Briffa allies, Labor’s Michael Raffoul and Bill Tehan, were wiped out in the election. Mr Raffoul’s defeat by independent Sandra Wilson came as the biggest shock. The secretary of the Kingsville ALP branch and member of Bill Shorten and Senator Conroy’s faction (the Short Cons) had been endorsed by former premier Steve Bracks. ‘‘The result’s the result; can’t do much about it,’’ was all Mr Raffoul had to say. He got 1708 primary votes, compared to Cr Wilson’s 994. Cr Wilson said she was a person who worked hard with all people in spite of differences.

She said the number of women on the council was a ‘‘fascinating’’ outcome. ‘‘I just think it’s not so much about women; it’s about people who stood up and have spoken for community. The fact that we’re women is probably just a byproduct of being good, community-minded people.’’ Mr Tehan was replaced by his ALP running mate in Strand ward, Paul Morgan, helping him over the line with preferences. Mr Tehan received 1425 primary votes and Cr Morgan 1012. Cr Morgan is the first to publicly back Cr Grigorovitch for mayor. ‘‘If she was nominated, I’d support her. I think she’s had the experience and the opportunity to prove herself in the previous term and if the opportunity arises for her to be mayor, I’m

Picture: Cathy Jackson

happy to support her.’’ As soon as election results started flowing, social media was rife with suggestions that Cr Morgan would be Cr Briffa’s only ally on the council. Cr Briffa’s main adversary, Peter Hemphill, was re-elected to Strand ward, recording 2575 primary votes. The two are yet to face off in the Victoria Civil and Administrative Tribunal over a councillor misconduct complaint brought against Cr Briffa by Cr Hemphill. Cr Morgan said he hoped to ‘‘become an olive branch’’ but did not think it was possible to mend the rift between the pair. Cr Briffa said he was ‘‘extremely pleased’’ at the level of community support received. ‘‘The new council, going forward . . . as I’ve said all

On the outer: Tony Briffa along, I will try and work with all councillors and we start afresh’’. Mr Tehan said: ‘‘The community clearly showed that they wanted me in. However, the proportional preferences clearly not only saw my failure, but the failure of many good councillors across the western councils’’. He said he hoped the new council could serve the community ‘‘without allowing their egos to blind good decision-making’’. Cr Hemphill and Mr Hogg did not respond by deadline.

Consultants warn of mill site’s lethal neighbours BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK AN EXPERT report has warned that people living on the proposed Port Phillip Woollen Mill development site in Williamstown could die in the event of a vapour cloud explosion (VCE) at Mobil’s Gellibrand tank farm. Its authors, explosion and dispersion consultancy GexCon Australia and Williamstown’s chemical engineers and expert witnesses IF Thomas & Associates, recommend detailed investigation into development of the mill site after finding that ‘‘loss of life and considerable property damage’’ could result from a VCE caused by fuel leakage. The report was commissioned by the Save Williamstown group, which opposes Nelson Place Village’s plans to develop the 2.7-hectare mill site to house 2000 residents. The report states: ‘‘Findings of explosion modelling conducted show that considerable damage would be caused at the adjacent BAE Systems premises (the former Williamstown Dockyard).” It states that consideration of planning criteria in the UK following the Buncefield explosion, and in Victoria, “further emphasise the need for

detailed investigation in the future”. (The Buncefield oil storage depot in Hertfordshire, England, ignited on December 11, 2005, causing an explosion measuring 2.4 on the Richter scale.) The report states that in the event of an explosion at the Gellibrand tank farm, “much of the housing present at up to 360-414 metres’ distance should be regarded as having windows broken, having occupants suffering flying glass injury and having damage sufficient to render premises unoccupiable. “. . . this would also affect some of the existing houses in Kanowna Street and Cecil Street. Closer to the tank farm, one of the piers and some of the buildings at BAE Systems would be heavily damaged. Although of low occupancy, it should not be forgotten that pedestrians in Gellibrand Park within the distances specified would also be affected, with those closest potentially suffering death.” Part of the mill site is less than 300 metres from the fuel tanks. The report’s authors recommend an ‘‘expanded study be used as a benchmark’’ to test Victoria’s approach to residential development in previously, predominantly industrial zones containing major hazard facilities.

The 21-year-old law student is organiser of a 15-member Red Cross Young Humanitarians team. ‘‘A lot of people are a lot more vulnerable than me and so whatever I can do to help them . . . that’s the reason I volunteer,’’ Ms Clark said. ‘‘I don’t have this big aspiration to fix poverty in Africa or anything like that, but if I can help a couple of people along the way, I think that’s really important as well.’’ The 14-kilometre run, from the CBD to St Kilda, is on November 11.

Impatient for disability plan

Star weaver’s tribute to Jill

YINGCHAO Fu-Thomas knows all too well how important the National Disability Insurance Scheme is to carers. Mrs Fu-Thomas works as a support carer at Karingal, an organisation providing services for people with a disability. Last Friday, Hobsons Bay residents were among those who attended a DisabiliTea event hosted by Mrs Fu-Thomas in Werribee to rally support and call on the federal government to roll out the scheme, which will change how disability services are funded, across Victoria. Earlier this year, the federal government announced the NIDS would be trialled in Geelong, with state government support. But Mrs Fu-Thomas said the scheme needed to be introduced statewide. ‘‘It will have a positive impact on the lives of people with disabilities and their carers,’’ she said. ‘‘We need to raise awareness of the importance of the NDIS and get support.’’ Hobsons Bay NDIS advocate Milly Parker said it was important that the federal government commit to funding the scheme, expected to cost $15 billion a year when implemented.

A PROJECT to weave a million stars to honour the memory of Jill Meagher is receiving astronomical levels of support. Artist Maryann Talia Pau (pictured), cofounder of the Altona-based Pacific Women’s Weaving Circle, is amazed by interest sparked by her One Million Stars to End Violence project. The idea struck her while her family was helping prepare the vigil for Ms Meagher in a Brunswick church. “We were helping collect the messages for Jill’s family. It was hard to put something like this into words so I started weaving these stars; it just evolved from there.’’ Ms Pau says the public outpouring of emotion in response to Ms Meagher’s disappearance in Brunswick on September 22 and the finding of her body one week later near a dirt road at Gisborne South has shown ‘‘the connection we feel as a community’’. “It has impacted on so many people, but here is a positive way for people to connect,” she said. Adrian Ernest Bayley, of Coburg, has been charged with the rape and murder of the 29-yearold ABC employee. Ms Pau says she was also inspired by a message left among the floral tributes to Ms Meagher; it

was a quote from Martin Luther King Jnr: Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.

Migrants to feel the pain of TAFE’s unkindest cuts BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM EDUCATION experts fear massive fee increases for English as a second language (ESL) courses at Victoria University will be beyond the reach of many migrant and refugee students. TAFE fees for some of the west’s most vulnerable students will almost triple next year as the effects of the state government’s $300 million funding cuts kick in. The Weekly reported exclusively on October 10 that some year 11 and 12 subject fees will more than triple next year. Studying first-year business at Bayside College, for example, will cost $350 next year, up from $100 this year. The Weekly understands concession fees for ESL courses will increase from $50 to $144. Non-concession-holders will fork out more than $1000, with the average yearly course costing $1842 (up from $700 in previous years).

Some courses will also be split into separate six-month blocks, meaning students have to pay twice. Victoria University, the west’s largest TAFE provider, has lost more than $32 million in funding, slashing 80 vocational courses and more than 100 teaching jobs. ESL teacher Anne Dowling said many migrant and refugee students would be cut off from the rest of society, with no other way to progress to higher education and training. ‘‘All that the students enrolled in an ESL course want is to get a job and give back to the community; that’s why they’re enrolled. They’ve been told they can’t get a job until their English is better.’’ Columbian migrant Ivan Valderrama, 31, will complete his ESL course at the end of the year. He said without the course he would be unable to apply for a mechanical engineering degree next year. ‘‘In Australia, your opportunities depend on your level of

language,’’ he said. ‘‘This course is vital to become a part of society.’’ Friends of VU spokesman Paul Adams said the west had many migrant, refugee and low socioeconomic students. ‘‘Yet Victoria University, the biggest education provider in the west, has the highest of all TAFE cuts in Melbourne.’’ Williamstown Labor MP Wade Noonan, who visited students undertaking the ESL course at the university earlier this month, said the effect of the cuts bordered on ‘‘catastrophic.’’ ‘‘It’s a disgraceful decision which will hurt our most disadvantaged citizens and makes a mockery of the government’s so-called investment in skills.’’ An Education Department spokesman said the government would invest more than $1 billion over the next four years in Victoria’s vocational training sector, including record funding to better support training and increased subsidies for apprenticeships and areas of skills need.

A top equine education With preparations in full swing for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup, an old hero continues to pull in big crowds. It’s 20 years since Subzero won the Melbourne Cup, but the thoroughbred is still a ‘rock star’. Last Thursday, the gelding visited Spotswood Primary School, accompanied by Melissa Weatherley, community education and careers officer at Racing Victoria. Ms Weatherley (pictured helping grade 3 pupil Emma don the racing silks), said the ‘Subbie’ visit was part of an RV program that “gives students the opportunity to meet a Melbourne Cup winner”. “We are trying to promote that love of horses, particularly for kids in a metro area who may not have directly encountered larger animals. It’s amazing to see him around the kids.’’ As part of his role as ‘community ambassador’, Subzero has visited 25 schools this year. The gelding, who was born in 1989, is still in good shape.

PUBLIC Transport Victoria has refused to reveal the cost of duplicating the Altona train loop, saying it will likely ‘‘result in unnecessary debate and cause confusion’’. In May, a Transport Department representative told an Altona public meeting that duplication of the line — which would especially improve services for Altona, Seaholme and Westona commuters on the Werribee line — could cost $10 million. Many considered this a nominal amount and hopes were raised that the line’s duplication was a distinct possibility. State Williamstown MP Wade Noonan subsequently lodged a freedom of information request for options and costs of duplicating the line. The PTV response was that ‘‘the

release of these documents is likely to result in unnecessary debate and cause confusion as they are capable of being misinterpreted, which would be contrary to the public interest.’’ PTV gave the same rationale for refusing to release documents containing ‘‘recommendations which are not reflective of the current government’s transport planning priorities and, consequently, release of these documents would be misleading, capable of being misinterpreted and likely to result in confusion or unnecessary debate.’’ Mr Noonan said PTV’s response made a mockery of the state government’s promise to be open and transparent. ‘‘They’ve even said the documents that I’ve requested may result in confusion or unnecessary debate. This smacks of a cover-up.’’ New Hobsons Bay councillor and Altona Loop Group member Sandra Wilson called for greater transparency.

Inspector Bill Mathers says police officers use black humour to help their thinking return to normal life and normal thoughts. Picture: Scott McNaughton

t used to be a cop’s job to strip the dead. Hobsons Bay police inspector Bill Mathers mentions it several times during our conversation. He started out in the force at 24 in 1979, and it was then the young trainee’s role to gather and bag clothing and other ‘‘evidence’’ from bodies. The psychological trauma that can result from working in emergency services doesn’t have to come from attending the ‘big one’. It can just as easily build up over time. Despite this, Mathers thinks his job is fantastic. But he says policing is an inherently dangerous profession, mentally and physically. ‘‘I think I’m lucky ’cause I think I’ve come through it all relatively unscathed. As a policeman, you’ve got to have really good strategies for reducing your stress and putting things back into context. ‘‘You can go to a car accident that’s a fatal . . . the worst ones are those that involve people dying . . . especially for police officers who have got young children and there’s young children involved. You have to go and tell the parents and relatives of the deceased that they’ve died and, to [ 10 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

Behind the news headlines are distressing scenes and tragedies that emergency workers face every day. Goya Dmytryshchak finds out how they cope. me, that’s equally traumatic. When I started in the police force, we actually had to strip the dead bodies and things like that, in the morgue, which I found very daunting.’’ For Mathers, much of the trauma he encountered was under the West Gate Bridge. On January 29, 2009, Darcey Freeman, 4, was thrown off the bridge by her father. A week later, Altona Meadows teenager Allem Halkic jumped to his death after being cyber-bullied. The bridge was so infamous for suicides that many adults remember learning a macabre ditty as children in western suburbs schoolyards. ‘‘The West Gate Bridge used to be horrific for our members with suicides,’’ Mathers says. ‘‘There’s nothing you can do to prepare for that. ‘‘It’s something that can actually play on your

mind and when you wake up three months later in the middle of the night you’re sort of seeing an image that you wish you hadn’t seen. ‘‘I was lucky that when I was younger, I used to exercise a lot. ‘‘There was a culture in the police force, which is still there — it’s changed a little bit — it used to be more alcohol-based then. Now it’s more based around being able to talk.’’ Mathers says black humour develops among police as a way of dealing with traumatic occasions. ‘‘To me, it was part of a culture that allowed you to actually put things back into perspective. You weren’t actually making fun of the situation; you were actually allowing your own psyche to get back into a normal synchronisation .

‘‘Mental health is a huge issue. As police we go to a lot of suicides and my own personal opinion is that with depression and mental illness, you know, the term ‘black hole’ and things like that . . . it’s very apparent that some people are just screaming out for friendship. ‘‘It’s almost like a hill. If you can get them over the top of that hill, then believe it or not, if they got over that one episode then their lives could come back to some sort of normality. ‘‘But it’s hard for police, because we’ve got limited time. ‘‘Sometimes we need some help to get over those hills and back to normality. ‘‘The danger for police is you don’t want people to overthink things, you don’t want them to drink to excess, or do drugs — all those issues that face the normal community, face police. ‘‘We’re all vulnerable and we all sometimes need support. ‘‘I can’t emphasise enough, if someone’s got problems, then seek help.’’ For a Moonee Ponds paramedic, the transportation of a seriously ill patient triggered traumatic memories from a decade earlier. Heath, who asked that his surname not be

soak up the trauma published, doesn’t want to go into detail out of respect for the families, but he says it was jobs that reminded of personal experiences that could be upsetting. ‘‘One [ambulance case] has reminded me of something that occurred to me in the past and I think that’s pretty common for most paramedics. ‘‘They might find it a little bit upsetting if something has affected them in the past or reminds them of a certain situation. ‘‘A close personal friend of mine passed away and the events of the case were extremely similar to that.’’ Heath, who is stationed at the Dallas/Hadfield branch, started in the job seven years ago at age 21. His wife, and a group of friends, are also paramedics and form a mutual support network. ‘‘That’s probably the best way to debrief,’’ Heath says. ‘‘The other thing I guess I do is have a life outside of work. That’s a really important thing for me.’’ It was when those two lives intersected that Heath recalls his second-most traumatic event as a paramedic. He was driving in the country earlier this year

in his own car when he came across a car smash involving six people, four of whom were badly hurt. ‘‘That was probably the first road trauma that’s really affected me in some way and I think it’s because I wasn’t expecting it. At work, we’re lucky in the fact that we get a page and it might be five or 10 minutes before we get to that job, so we’re prepared. ‘‘It’s different when you drive around the corner and all of a sudden there’s something in front of you and you don’t have that time to prepare yourself . . . there was almost a sense of vulnerability.’’ When Sunshine firefighter and station officer Phil Menzies drives home at night, he occasionally sees a cross on the highway marking a fatal crash he has been to. ‘‘You go past and you think, oh, that’s where that person died. I remember the car, but there were also four people that we got out. ‘‘You do have to think positive, and we’re there to help people and that’s the way I deal with it anyway.’’ His station, known as ‘44 Station’, houses the western suburbs’ road rescue truck, which

‘We’re all vulnerable and we all sometimes need support. I can’t emphasise enough, if someone’s got problems, then seek help.’ — Bill Mathers traverses the area bounded by Williamstown, Laverton, the Calder Park Thunderdome, Essendon Airport and Moonee Ponds. The truck carries the ‘jaws of life’ to cut people out of mangled wrecks or release bodies or limbs caught in industrial accidents. Menzies, who joined the brigade 27 years ago, says: ‘‘We’re not big, strong, tough people. We do have feelings. ‘‘I can pull a firefighter off my truck if I feel that he’s suffering in some way. ‘‘We’re a tightknit group in a fire station where

we live with each other and camaraderie is really close, so you get to know each other fairly well and you can sometimes notice if a guy’s a bit off. ‘‘If a guy who’s normally talkative is starting to be a bit quiet, a bit withdrawn, we’d ask if they’re all right, and say, ‘Look, if you’re having problems, you can ring our peer support’.’’ Menzies, 51, says he’s lucky because he enjoys his four-wheel-driving and fishing — ‘‘just getting away’’. ‘‘Sometimes you do go, ‘Oh geez, I need a bloody beer here’ or something like that, and then I just go see a mate. ‘‘I have been affected a couple of times. ‘‘As a firefighter, I’d only been in the job about six months and I still remember there was a fire down in Footscray, off Moore Street. ‘‘We turned up and the back of the house was going and I’ve raced down with the hose over my shoulder and I’ve gone around the corner and halfway through the door was this young girl. ‘‘So I’ve grabbed her and dragged her out and put her on her back and there was this huge kitchen knife sticking out of her. ‘‘I still know where that house is.’’

Ensemble and directed by Sarah Austin, who says she’s excited to be working with a passionate cast of 11 teenage artists. Love Letters is at the Fairfax Studio, Arts Centre, Melbourne, 7.30pm today to Saturday. There are also 11am shows tomorrow and Friday. Further details: artscentremelbourne.com.au — Benjamin Millar

A YARRAVILLE costume designer has taken the concept of people wearing their emotions on their sleeve to a whole new level. Casey-Scott Corless (pictured) has spent a “manic couple of weeks” designing costumes for Love Letters , a new play based on reallife love letters submitted by the public. Corless says the project has been flooded with letters, some recent and others stretching back many years. “It has been wonderful, an incredibly imaginative and collaborative process,” he said. The design work follows a number of stage and film projects for Corless, including shows with Red Room Theatre and La Mama Theatre as well as music videos for acts such as Evermore and Something For Kate. The latest brief, to create costumes based on the love letters exchanged by lovebirds Australia-wide, was an unusual one. “We had a rough idea for what we wanted in the show but the material emerged and the costumes emerged alongside the letters.” Corless has been aiming to create a vibrant response to the heartfelt emotions included in the letters. Love Letters is written by Kylie Trounson in collaboration with St Martins’ Teen

Along with learning to read and write, swimming is right up there as something kids should have under their belts. With summer on the way, the new swim centre, Paul Sadler Swimland in Braybrook, is a great place for lessons. “Paul Sadler Swimland’s program teaches students to swim - from the beginner stage through to competitive swimming – while celebrating the small successes along the way,” says manager Ben Sadler. “Our goal is to increase the aquatic potential of every child in an environment that’s fun and encouraging.” Kids can develop swimming skills in a variety of classes for different ages and abilities, including ‘Swordy Tots’ (six months - three

years), ‘Learners’ (three years and up) and squad swimming for advanced swimmers. “Every child who swims at our facility experiences deep water survival during every lesson.” Located at Caroline Chisholm Catholic College, the new swim centre has a 25-metre, six-lane pool, a kinder pool, large change rooms and tiered seating on the pool deck. 2012 marks 40 years since Paul Sadler left his career as a special education teacher to set up his own swim school. Today, he’s a national leader in aquatic education, with 25,000 children learning to swim each week at one of Paul Sadler’s 13 centres.

TRIPPING

My steak-out in Buenos I

they’re crazy drivers over there — we arrived at the centrally located hotel. Things looked up from here. There’s so much to see and do — like indulging in a famous Argentinian steak, joining a bus tour of the city’s hot spots, attending a tango show, or visiting the colourful town of La Boca. For 80 Argentinian pesos (about $16), travellers can join a three-hour bus tour visiting the north (wealthy area) and the south (poorer). It also includes a visit to Parliament House, which is painted a dusty pink, and La Boca, a ‘shady’ area famous for its

brightly coloured buildings and soccer stadium. Sinking your teeth into a large, juicy Argentinian steak is something travellers shouldn’t pass up either. Traditionally, locals eat theirs well-done but tourists can have it how they like. For $US20, I had a big medium-rare steak with vegies and dessert — what a bargain! Another ‘must do’ is visiting Recoleta Cemetery where famous people like Eva Peron (Evita) are buried. The gravestones are large and many have rooms in front of them for visitors to pray, view photos or light candles. While in Recoleta, a walk to the market might yield souvenirs for loved ones. For a night on the town, dinner and a tango show is a real treat. I loved watching the talented dancers dressed in beautiful costumes moving to the Spanish beats.

The best way to view what’s on the market

t’s fair to say my experience of arriving in Buenos Aires wasn’t the best, but the city was yet to show its beauty and culture. Three things Aussies need to be aware of in the city are: paying the $US100 to enter the country, eating dinner late (from 9pm) and the time difference — Melbourne is 13 hours ahead of Buenos Aires. After taking all this in, I looked around for my airport transfer — an Argentinian holding a sign with my name on it. Unfortunately, he was nowhere to be seen. I caught a taxi, communicating as best I could in traveller’s Spanish with the driver replying in broken English. To my surprise, the 50-something-year-old was listening to an English pop radio station. After speeding the whole way into the city and nearly running into another car —

MOTORING ●

Chasing the BReeZ The Subaru BRZ combines great looks and brilliant performance. By ALISTAIR KENNEDY t’s not often that the entire Australian motoring media agrees on the merits of a particular vehicle, but such has been the case with the new Subaru BRZ. This exciting and affordable two-door coupe has gained rave reviews from just about everyone who’s driven it, although sadly very few members of the public, and so potential buyers, have had that opportunity and won’t have for some time. High global demand meant that barely BRZ 200 models made it to Australia. Of these, about 50 were allocated to dealers as demonstrators meaning that demand was always going to heavily outweigh supply and all available cars were sold in just over three hours when they went on sale in July this year. BRZ is built at Subaru’s Ota plant in Japan as a joint venture with the company’s part-owner, Toyota, and it competes directly against its identical twin, the Toyota 86. The division of labour between the two companies makes a lot of sense with Toyota looking

after the product planning and styling while Subaru in charge of its engineering development and production. The BRZ breaks new ground for Subaru in that it has rear-wheel drive — all its other Australian models have all-wheel-drive. The Subaru coupe certainly looks the part with its low-slung styling and short overhangs. The front is dominated by a large, hexagonal grille with sweeping headlights and the rear is tall and square with an additional brake light positioned between twin large tail pipes. Although there are four seats the rear pair are basically there for emergency use rather than for long-distance travel. The boot is quite small although the rear seatbacks do fold flat for extra storage space. Surprisingly for a car where space is at a premium, the BRZ comes with a full-size spare wheel. Power comes from an all-new 2.0-litre turbocharged horizontally opposed petrol engine that generates 147 kW of power at 7000rpm and

Curvy: Subaru BRZ is a real head-turner. 205Nm of torque at 6600 revs. We’ve always loved the throaty sound of the Subaru ‘boxer’ engine. Both the six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmissions were specifically developed for the BRZ. Our test car had the manual, a delightful short-throw unit that is fast and smooth and just asks to be used frequently. With so few cars available Subaru adopted the unusual strategy of selling the BRZ exclusively

over the internet and with national driveaway pricing — $37,150 for the manual and $39,730 for the automatic. We’ve left the bad news until last because, despite ongoing pleading with Subaru’s head office decision makers, the worldwide popularity of the BRZ means that there could be a wait for up to a year before the next shipload arrives in Australia. Fingers crossed that this isn’t the case.

Breeze knocked out of Clubbers’ sails BY LANCE JENKINSON

VTCA SCORES

IT’S big news when Yarraville Club loses a homeand-away match in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association senior division — let alone in the brutal fashion it did in the season opener. The Clubbers didn’t have to swallow the bitter pill of defeat too often during their amazing premiership four-peat, but they received a hefty dose of their own medicine in a 145-run loss to Bentleigh on the road on Saturday. Set 254 for first-innings points, the Clubbers were rolled for 108 and need vast improvement when they make their home debut against McKinnon in a two-day match at Walker Oval starting Saturday. Spotswood has big expectations under new skipper Andrew Dickinson. The Woodsmen kickstarted their campaign with a solid 54-run win over South Caulfield at Donald McLean Reserve. Having made 7-240 on day one on the back of superb batting from Abhijeet Sharma (57), Dickinson (47) and Ryan Warnock (44), the Woodsmen defended their total to perfection, bowling the visitors out for 186. Matt Leddin led the way with the ball, taking 5-35 off 15.4 overs, while Dickinson did a power of work to finish with 4-33 off 16. The Woodsmen will visit Hoppers Crossing over the next two Saturdays. In north division, Footscray United drew first blood with a gutsy 55-run win over Williamstown CYMS on their visit to Fearon Reserve. The Bulldogs successfully defended their score of 237 on the back of a four-wicket haul to second-change bowler Sudesh Nand and a

further three wickets to the ever-reliable Tarique Jeffrey. Laverton had a memorable introduction to life in the VTCA’s second tier, defending 196 against Sunshine Druids at Shorten Reserve. The Magpies were staring down the barrel with Druids marching confidently to 1-88, but the game took an incredible twist with their last nine wickets falling for 61. Shaun Delaney bowled impeccably, taking

Seddon celebrated a season-opening 122-run win over Sunshine United at Hanmer Reserve. In the west B1, Footscray ANA turned a firstinnings loss into an outright win over Avondale Heights, thanks largely to a 10-wicket match from Jamie Wills. The news was not so good for Barkly Street Uniting, which lost to Sunshine Heights by 31 runs. There was no play on day two between Kingsville Baptists and Point Cook.

Imps’ recruit unstoppable with 5-13 BY LANCE JENKINSON

THERE was a distinct Altona flavour within Victoria’s women’s and men’s teams who enjoyed one of their most successful Australian Hockey League campaigns. Danielle Schubach and Greg Drake were front and centre as the VIS Vipers claimed the national women’s title with a 5-1 blitz of NSW Arrows in the final at the weekend. Schubach was captain of the first Vipers team to become champions since 2003, while Drake offered his expertise as assistant coach of that team. The Victorian Vikings came third in the men’s section, bringing home a bronze medal. The Altona connection was former state league 1 captain Matthew Guest. Altona chairman David Burns lauded the success of his players on the national stage. ‘‘We’re extremely proud of Danielle, Greg and Matthew.’’

4-33 off 16 overs, including both openers. Matthew O’Brien chimed in with 3-24. Altona North was 78 runs short of Tullamarine’s 239 at Tullamarine Reserve. In the north A1 match of the day between Altona Roosters and East Keilor, the Roosters held on for dear life to win by 31 runs. Set a mammoth 352 for victory, East Keilor fought every step of the way, but ran out of overs to be left stranded on 9-320.

WILLIAMSTOWN Imperials notched their first win of the summer over new chums Melton South in Williamstown and District Cricket Association A1 turf. The Imps admitted to knowing little about their newly promoted opponents so were focused on their own output and hoping it would be enough to get the job done. They won on first innings by 53 runs but missed out on the outright due to time running out at Saturday’s conclusion at Fearon Reserve. ‘‘We didn’t know much about this mob,’’ Imps top-order batsman Daniel Slattery said. ‘‘They come up from B grade and it’s always a bit of the unknown when you come up against a new side. It was good to get a win.’’ South didn’t handle its introduction to the top flight well. Sent in on day one, it perished for just 93.

The visitors rustled up 128, but, more importantly, chewed up 80 overs in the process.

Win first-up for comeback kid AS if racing A grade at the Footscray Cycling Club’s summer criteriums at the VUT track in Hoppers Crossing wasn’t already tough enough, competitors got to test their mettle against sixtimes national track champion and Olympian Joel Leonard, who returned to racing after a year off the bike. Leonard, 31, from Ascot Vale, was not overly confident of his chances of winning pre-race but was keen to get back to racing. ‘‘A few mates have been trying to get me back on the bike, and I found that when I did the fire was still in the belly, so I thought it was the right time to start racing again,’’ he said. Leonard spent much of the race driving hard on the front, with a few select riders able to swap turns on the front with him. He duly took the win, crossing the line a wheel ahead of Dom Dudkiewicz, who was well clear of third-placed Richard Braic.

Another Rams victim pleads for mercy BY LANCE JENKINSON

SUMMER LEAGUE

NEWPORT Rams are in a menacing mood at the moment. The red-hot Rams sit on top of the Baseball Victoria summer league division 2 ladder with a flawless 5-0 record. They have won their first five games in a canter by a combined total of 55 runs and an average winning margin of 11. The Rams posted another mercy-rule win on Sunday, pounding the hapless Springvale Lions 15-2 in a one-sided contest at KC White Reserve. Rams assistant coach Gavin Young told the Weekly the run of good results had come on the back of a strong team bond created under the leadership of coach Grant Weir. ‘‘There’s a good culture built by these guys,’’ Young said. ‘‘The team camaraderie is pretty good at the moment. Everybody has got everyone’s back. ‘‘When someone is down, someone steps up for them and that’s all you can ask.’’ The Rams are showing no signs of slowing down. Some detractors will tell you the Rams are yet to face the so-called glamour clubs. But you can only play the team that’s in front of you and the Rams are by no means getting ahead of themselves. ‘‘It’s a long season and we take one game at a time,’’ Young said. ‘‘Our goal is to go out there and play good, solid, strong baseball and we believe the outcome will take care of itself. We’re doing a lot of things right at the moment.’’ The Rams’ bats have been hot all season and that continued on Sunday when they forced the

umpires into calling the game after seven innings under the mercy rule. The best part of the Rams’ offensive efforts was the shared responsibilities. ‘‘When we came up to bat, we stayed composed and just team-hit,’’ Young said. ‘‘We were doing the small things right, we were able to back everyone up and play as a team. It was all about moving a guy across one base at a time.’’ The Rams had their worries in the pitching department. Starter Griffin Weir is still finding his rhythm and location. ‘‘It wasn’t one of his best outings,’’ Young said. ‘‘The good thing about him today was that when he was struggling, he worked out of it and kept on getting better as the game wore on.’’ Liam Vicary-Lovegrove, a ‘‘hit and miss’’ reliever last year, has become a dependable arm out of the bullpen this season. The Rams will square off with the Werribee Giants at President’s Park on Sunday.

WILLIAMSTOWN Wolves were at their clinical best in disposing of the Berwick City Cougars 8-3 in Baseball Victoria’s summer league division 2 at Cyril Molyneux Reserve on Saturday. The Wolves avoided having to face Cougars ace Cameron Ross and feasted on the pitching as a result. The US import was unable to start after injuring his hand on Friday night. Wolves batters Aaron Green (4-from-5) and Corey Hart (3-from-4) took a shining to the inexperienced pitchers served up by the home side and led their side to victory. ‘‘The injury probably hampered their pitching capabilities,’’ Wolves playing president Ryan Camov said. ‘‘We faced a couple of their younger guys and our disciplined batting line-up was able to take advantage of the situation.’’ Green has been in devastating touch in the batters’ box. The lead-off hitter is an incredible 9-from-10 in the last two outings and nigh on impossible to fool. ‘‘It’s just phenomenal,’’ Camov said. ‘‘He’s

making it look effortless at the moment. Having him get on base that often and giving the guys in the two, three and four holes an opportunity to score those runs, it just makes such a huge difference. ‘‘He plays to his strengths, he doesn’t overpower the ball and works with the pitch. His application is fantastic and he’s very focused in the box.’’ Hart was the cherry on the top for the Wolves. Batting in the nine spot, his ability to get on base was vital with Green being the next man in. The Wolves mixed up their pitching rotation. Wily veteran David Asp was given a rest after a heavy workload in the opening month. Little-tried Daniel Chircop got his chance to throw the first baseball and didn’t let his coach Dean Marnell down, sending down three solid innings. The Wolves moved into third on the ladder with a 4-1 record. They will cross the West Gate for a challenge with Bonbeach (2-3) at Bicentennial Park on Sunday. — Lance Jenkinson

ALTONA has shown the type of performance it’s capable of producing in the Bowls Victoria premier division with a 25-shot mauling of Moonee Ponds in a statement game at Civic Parade on Saturday. The A’s had built one of the more fearsome combinations on paper in the off season, but when they sat on the bottom of the ladder without a win after two rounds, the tipsters were scratching their heads about the reasons. A’s skip Brett Dodd is not one for knee-jerk reactions and he called for patience as the rebuilt side tried to mesh and the players became more familiar with their positions. The A’s found some winning form in the third round, albeit in a close game over lowly Mentone. The real scrutiny on this side would come against the powerful Ponds. The A’s thumped the visitors 87-61 with three of the four rinks up. Brenton Coad took care of one of Australia’s best-known bowlers, Mark Jacobson, 30-14 in a one-sided duel. Brad Peck took the honours

21-14 over Brett Spurr, while David Zitter edged out Shane Fordham 21-19. The closest contest was between Dodd and Adam Galloway, who split the score 15 apiece. The A’s have squared the ledger at 2-2 and have a bit of that fear factor about them. It would take a brave person to pick against them making it three in a row when Brighton arrives on their doorstep on Saturday. — — Lance Jenkinson Bowls Victoria Premier division: Altona 17-87 Moonee Ponds 1-62 Division 1: Yarraville/Footscray 14-94 Bundoora RSL (2) 4-77; Footscray Park Rosamond 16-80 Elsternwick Club 2-65 Division 2: Williamstown 14-87 Yarraville/ Footscray (2) 4-66 Division 3: Altona Sports 18-113 Newport 0-51 Division 4: Laverton 16-102 Footscray Park Rosamond (3) 2-59 Division 5: Werribee (6) 0-62 Altona North 18-99


Seagulls shattered by final ball BY LANCE JENKINSON WILLIAMSTOWN had the wind knocked out of its sails after a dramatic last-ball loss to Brighton in a Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association southwest group one-day thriller at Brighton Beach Oval on Saturday. All-rounder Craig Sheedy had the chance to pull off what would have been a miraculous Seagulls win, but not even one of the best at-the-death bowlers could deny the home side a two-wicket win. Six hours of edge-of-your-seat cricket came down to the last delivery. The Seagulls needed a dot ball for victory; conceding a run would see the sides play out a rare draw. But the unthinkable happened. Somehow Brighton managed to take a second run and snare all six points. ‘‘It went to mid-off, it was a pretty rough outfield and the ball bobbled around a bit,’’ Sheedy told the Weekly. ‘‘Unfortunately, they scrambled through for two, and we were on the wrong end of it.’’

The Seagulls have only themselves to blame. They are ruing the three lost overs from their batting innings after being bowled out for 148 in the 42nd over. It was a still a good recovery from the Seagulls to post a competitive total after slumping to 4-17. Brenton Hodges, the club coach, pointed the way with 68 and received support from Mathew Inness (11) and Luke Rainone (12) in the middle order. Otherwise, the cupboard of runs was bare. ‘‘Hodgy came in and battled away really well,’’ Sheedy said. ‘‘Balls were jagging all over the place but he hung in there. ‘‘Then he started to get going, got a few fours away and got us back into the game. We were looking down the barrel, but he got right on top of the bowling.’’ The Seagulls were not about to give up — not with the calibre of bowlers at their disposal. They had the hosts in early trouble at 3-47 with opening bowlers Inness and Cain Speakman turning up the heat.

Brighton went through a period of consolidation, but the Gulls kept probing and eventually wore them down with a fourth wicket on 92 and a fifth one run later. A further three quick scalps and the hosts were 8-116. All the momentum was with the Gulls for the first time in the match. The game-changer in the middle period was lanky Seagulls speedster Daniel Popa, who reeled off an economical 2-10 off nine overs. ‘‘He bowled nine straight overs and was magnificent,’’ Sheedy said. ‘‘The young fella has got a bit of height about him and just dropped it on a length. ‘‘He was unplayable at times, would’ve beaten the bat 30 times. They couldn’t get a feather on them.’’ But the hard work the Seagulls did to get back into the battle would amount to nought. Tail-enders Ryan Sweeney and Andrew Harrod dug deep to get Brighton over the line in a grandstand finish. Sheedy said two close losses to start the season would only serve as motivation heading into the clash with Malvern at Morris Street on Saturday.

Recovery a thriller ALTONA’S overseas import Joshua Wells dragged his side to a nine-run win over Yarraville in a tense, lowscoring Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association south-west group local derby at Frank Kirk Oval on Saturday. The A’s showed incredible powers of recovery to come back and take the points in a thriller. The home side lost the toss and was sent in on a track on which it was difficult to score runs. They slumped to 5-11 before Wells saved the innings with a timely 59. The next-best score for the A’s was 38 extras, including a ridiculous 29 wides, which the Eagles were rueing on Saturday evening. Owen Alsop (11), Simon Jackson (14) and Stefan Sidari (11no) couldn’t know it at the time, but their contributions with the bat were to be invaluable in the outcome. Eagles captain Alex Hewet continued his stellar start to the season with the ball. The skipper took 4-6 off nine overs to take his season tally to an incredible 8-13 off 17.1 overs. Adam Yates cleaned up the tail with 3-28 as the A’s finished on 138 from 44.4 overs. Yarraville’s chase was uncertain right the way through. The only rock for the Eagles at the top of the order was highly rated Matthew Harrison with 29. A stream of wickets came from all

sources in the A’s’ bowling attack with six bowlers claiming a scalp, while Alsop, Jake Duff, Lee Elmore and Sidari claimed two each. The Eagles got starts from Hewet (17) and McRae (16) in the middle order and Daniel Torre (16) and Patrick Prestidge (19no) in the tail, but it could not stop them from being upended for 129 in 37 overs. The A’s made it two wins from two starts, while Yarraville was left to

Numbers add up BY LANCE JENKINSON IT might not have been an intimidating score in summers past, but Footscray Edgewater is confident that 262 can get the job done against Carlton under the new 90-over-a-day Premier Cricket formula. Cricket Victoria opted to shorten its club games from 100 to 90 overs in a day this season and Bulldogs president Geoff Collinson said the 10 fewer overs needed to be taken into account when evaluating day one totals. ‘‘You’ve got to recalibrate your thinking about what’s a good score.’’ The Bulldogs were faced with a difficult afternoon to bat. There were clouds in the sky to help the bowlers, the grass in the outfield was longer than usual, and Princes Park’s big radius made it a tough ground for scoring boundaries. The Dogs could muster only 19 boundaries for the day. ‘‘With the rain we’ve had, the wickets weren’t at their best in most of the grounds around Melbourne,’’ Collinson said. There is a steely resolve about this breed of Bulldog. They’re willing to make the best of a bad situation. If the rope is out of reach, why not run four? They did so twice. Of course, it’s always easier to produce a commanding total when your openers are in form. Dean Russ stole the headlines for his back-to-back tons. This time he produced just 12, but his partner-in-crime Wes Robinson stepped up. Robinson is a validation of what the Bulldogs expected when they signed the former first-class player from WA. The 31-year-old brought up his third consecutive half century and fell just seven short of a maiden Premier Cricket ton. Collinson was happy with opening day. ‘‘It was a really good effort and we definitely think we’ve got our noses in front,’’ he said.
