SARAH HARRIS QUE SERA

OUR COVER: Foodbank Victoria CEO Ric Benjamin has his hands full at the Yarraville warehouse. Story: 10-11 Picture: Marco De Luca

Guy and dolls or two days, the large bag of doubleamputee dolls sat in my car, their sightless eyes boring holes into me as I drove about wondering, not for the first time, if my husband was entirely sane. “It’s better if you take them to the tip,” he’d said, gleefully making me an accomplice. Like why couldn’t we just use the bin? Imagine being pulled over for a random breath test and you have 30 or 40 small passengers aboard who are quite literally legless. And why worry about depositing several dozen dolls, all missing lower limbs, in curb-side rubbish? The really creepy bit was him collecting them from various op shops, garage sales and charity stores. If you have ever seen a 1.9-metre bearded man examining used dolls or, more precisely, scrutinising their feet and legs, you’ll know what I mean. But we’ve been together long enough that I know not to ask. I knew also that his younger brother’s birthday was coming up and sensed this was somehow connected. It was, however, a little disconcerting when I went out to the shed and found him dismembering with a power tool a Ninja turtle, some male action figures and several Barbies. And I actually chewed a small chunk out of my own cheek when he started sticking the feet of these unfortunates on to one of those hard hats they wear on construction sites. But when, after several days’ work, he trotted from the shed to the house wearing the yellow helmet adorned with legs like a punk rock echidna, I understood completely. Happy birthday, Phil, we hope you like your footy hat.

Stranded, late and angry BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK SENIOR citizens lobbying for improved train services on the Werribee line were last Friday ordered by a Metro employee to leave an Altona railway station platform. The directive came minutes after the last of 161 signatures was collected on a letter calling on Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder to restore direct trains between the city and Altona loop stations (Seaholme, Altona and Westona) in the new November timetable. But under Metro’s new timetable, released this week, the biggest change for Altona loop passengers will be a three-minute reduction in waiting times at Newport. Altona loop commuters currently have to change trains at Newport or Laverton in non-peak times. Altona Loop Group members and commuters who signed the letter are calling for punctual trains, no bypassing of Altona loop stations, and partial duplication of the single track to provide a more frequent, reliable service. The letter states: ‘‘The train service is consistently poor with frequent cancellations, bypasses, and signal faults. We’re often ‘kidnapped’ when the train bypasses the Altona loop unannounced and we’re often dumped at Newport station when the train fails to go through the Altona loop.’’ Last Thursday, Western suburbs Greens MP Colleen Hartland told Parliament that every customer satisfaction survey since the train timetable changed last year showed Altona loop commuters were the most dissatisfied on Melbourne’s entire network. On Friday about 9.15am, a man dressed in a Metro uniform, who refused to give his name, ordered the Weekly and members of the Altona Loop Group to leave the platform. He claimed that a permit was required for senior citizens — including Margaret Rice, an 80-year-old Altona woman with a walker — to be on the platform. Ms Rice said she had lost the confidence to catch a train by herself because there were so many train changes instead of one direct train from Altona to the

‘And it’s not good enough, just not good enough. Old people need better transport, direct transport.’ — Miriam Hicks city. She said it was difficult getting on and off up to three trains just to travel into the city. ‘‘I’m just not confident enough to do it by myself,’’ Ms Rice said. ‘‘I’ll be catching a train tomorrow morning, but with a friend who can help me. It’s all right to get on the train here [at Altona] where there’s not many passengers getting on, but when you get off at Newport you’re getting on to an already crowded train and you’ve people behind you pushing. ‘‘I used to go in and out by myself quite often, but now I’ve just lost confidence entirely.’’ Miriam Hicks said that on Thursday she

departed Parliament station at 4.20pm. ‘‘We had to get off at North Melbourne. We had to stand there for about 15 minutes, change lines, change platforms. Then we had to get off again at Footscray and wait there to get a train to Newport and then from Newport we finally got to Altona at 5.40pm — from 4.20pm. ‘‘It’s not good enough . . . old people need better transport, direct transport.’’ Allan Williams said he signed the letter because ‘‘the service has gone to crap in the last 18 months’’. Seaholme resident Abbie Kinniburgh, who has a condition called Disorders of the Corpus Callosum, said the train changes were making it difficult for her to get to classes at Footscray’s Victoria University — four stations away. The Weekly asked Metro why people were ordered to leave Altona station on Friday. It said it needed to gather more information before commenting. — With Cameron Tait

In spending, some runners are more equal than others and other signage. ‘‘Up to now, my costs has been in the region of $3000-4000,’’ Ms Short said. Mayor Tony Briffa, running for re-election in Cherry Lake ward, has set up a campaign office in Altona’s main street. ‘‘I’m too busy to focus on

BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK SOME candidates standing for Hobsons Bay Council are understood to be spending well in excess of $20,000 on their campaign. Forty-one contenders are fighting for seven positions in three multi-member wards at the October 27 postal election. While some independents said they couldn’t compete with candidates backed by political parties, some Labor-supported candidates claimed a few independents were spending just as much, if not more. Michael Raffoul, one of two ALP-supported candidates for Cherry Lake ward, would not disclose his advertising costs. ‘‘I would suggest transparency is key in promoting accountability and that perhaps introduction of caps on political party contributions would help inject some fairness back into elections,’’ Cr Raffoul said. ‘‘Although I am a Labor Party member, I personally have not received any endorsements from the political party, be it monetary or materials.’’ Jason Price, an independent standing in the same ward, said he had spent $2000 on his campaign. Maureen Short, also an independent Cherry Lake candidate, said it was very difficult to compete with the huge Corflutes, posters on cars

the costs of the election at the moment, but it is definitely a much more expensive campaign and difficult for independents like me to compete with political parties,’’ he said. Paul Morgan, an ALP-supported candidate for Strand ward, said he received no backing from Labor. ‘‘My campaign is entirely self-funded. As for the cost, I’d be in a better position to answer that after the election,’’ he said. ‘‘I can tell you, however, that my initial budget has well and truly been exceeded and costs continue to mount. I know of other independent candidates running campaigns who are spending even more money.’’

Carl Marsich, a Labor-supported candidate for Wetlands ward, said he had never seen so much campaign advertising material. ‘‘There’s more election billboards in Hobsons Bay than I’ve seen in many state and federal elections,’’ he said. ‘‘Of my own money, I’ve spent about $3000-$4000.’’ Luba Grigorovitch, also an ALP-supported candidate for Wetlands ward, said she had budgeted ‘‘$5000 for the campaign’’. Strand ward independent candidate, Cr Angela Altair, said higher costs were inevitable given that the size of the ward she is standing in trebled and also due to the change from attendance voting. ‘‘In a postal election it is even more important to communicate with voters as much as you can,’’ she said. ‘‘It’s always harder if, like me, you don’t have a party backing. I’ve used my own money for my material and have no donations to declare.’’ Bill Tehan, an ALP-supported candidates for Strand ward, said at least Labor candidates were paying their own way. ‘‘I am aware by the amount of promotion out there that the independents would have spent just as much, if not more, on the campaign. ‘‘I would hazard a guess and say the higher end of the costs is around $15,000 to $20,000; absolutely not a struggle for the independents.’’ Strand ward independent candidate Therese McKenney-Campbell said people were complaining that advertising boards were starting to cause ‘‘visual pollution’’. She said her campaign costs averaged about $3600 without billboards, only ‘‘little postagestamps on garden stakes’’.

Bay candidates call for campaign funding transparency CANDIDATES in the Hobsons Bay Council election are calling for disclosure of donations in line with Victoria’s local-government legislation and greater transparency of how campaigns are funded. Strand ward candidate Susan Miller, speaking for three Hobsons Bay Greens candidates, said there should be more disclosure. ‘‘One of the key principles of the Greens is

transparency in government at all levels, so we would support disclosure of campaign donations,’’ she said. ‘‘Our total campaign expenditure has been $1420 for three wards. ‘‘Funds came from branch fund-raisers with local volunteers arranging local community functions. The rest came from state office funds of party membership fees and individual donations. ‘‘No funds were donated by vested interest

groups. Our nomination fees of $250 each were paid by the state office and will be paid back when/if we receive them back from the VEC.’’ Cherry Lake independent candidate Sandra Wilson said her campaign was totally self-funded and that there should be more transparency. ‘‘I estimate the cost [of my campaign] to be in the vicinity of $3000, most of it being for design and printing of flyers. Currently, candidates only

have to submit a disclosure of donations of $500 or more 40 days after the close of election. It’s off the radar by then. Clear the air and get as much out in the open as possible, sooner rather than later. I think it’s directly related to the choice of candidate people want to elect.” Cherry Lake ward has 18,049 enrolled voters, Strand ward has 25,948, and Wetlands has 19,873 voters. — Goya Dmytryshchak

West in jobs firing line BY NICK TOSCANO UNEMPLOYMENT in Melbourne’s west is rising faster than anywhere in the metropolitan area with former manufacturing workers continuing to join the jobless queue. Australian Bureau of Statistics data released last week show the national unemployment rate reached 5.4 per cent in September, up from 5.1 per cent in August. While the Victorian jobless rate was steady at 5.4 per cent, figures for Melbourne’s outer-western suburbs show that 6.9 per cent of their population was out of work. In the same region, youth unemployment was at 14.9 per cent. A report from the state opposition said the outer-western electorates had recorded the sharpest unemployment increases since December 2010. The report, which compiled unemployment data from December 2010 to June this year, ranked the electorates of Altona, Tarneit and Derrimut as the three Melbourne areas with the highest jumps in the jobless rate. For the Altona district — including Altona, Altona Meadows, Laverton and Point Cook — the figures showed an increase of 2 per cent. Within the electorate

of Tarneit, which spans Tarneit, Werribee, Werribee South and Hoppers Crossing, unemployment increased 2.6 per cent. Michael Wasley, general manager of job agency MatchWorks, said the western suburbs were continually ‘‘over-represented’’ in unemployment figures due to the decline in manufacturing and retail industries. ‘‘In the west, being a traditionally blue-collar area, these industries are hurting and that’s having an impact.’’ Mr Wasley said MatchWorks’ Werribee branch had faced a rise in the number of residents laid off from car manufacturing plants. Tarneit Labor MP and opposition employment spokesman Tim Pallas said NSW had created 46,000 full-time jobs in September, while Victoria created 1400. ‘‘Other state governments are attracting business investment and investing themselves in major infrastructure projects to create jobs, [but] the Baillieu government seems too weak or lazy to get Victoria moving.’’ Manufacturing, Exports and Trade Minister Richard Dalla-Riva said the state’s manufacturing sector held up strongly despite the high Australian dollar, with 13,100 more people in the industry than at the same time last year.

Beloved mayor had ‘serious fun’ BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK HUNDREDS of people attended a memorial service for former Williamstown mayor and Rotarian Jeffrey Bird (1938-2012) at Williamstown Town Hall last Monday. In a memorial booklet titled A Wonderful Life, Mr Bird farewelled family and friends in his own words, signed off, ‘‘Cheers, Jeff’’. A former senior lecturer and consultant in business, and textile business owner, Mr Bird spent his early teenage years at Williamstown High School. In the booklet he said his greatest joy as a young man at Melbourne University was ‘‘meeting Elaine, my lifetime love of over 50 years’’. ‘‘I could never resist trying to contribute to the community as a result of words spoken at my university graduation by Sir George

Paton: ‘You are very privileged people. Go and put your knowledge to work in the community’.’’ Mr Bird wrote that he followed through and ‘‘never had so much fun and fascination’’. As a young man, this was as Junior Chamber of Commerce (JayCees) Australian president and world vice-president. In ‘‘young middle age’’ it was as a Williamstown councillor and mayor and in his middle age, it was with Point Gellibrand Rotary, as governor of Rotary International District 9800 and Boroondara Family Network president. Later in life, Mr Bird was with the Melbourne Savage Club. He stated that he and Elaine had about 30 interests, enjoying theatre, opera, ballet and the orchestra enough to watch more than 1000 professional productions. He wrote that he had travelled to more than 45 countries:

Wonderful life: Jeffrey Bird’s achievements are celebrated at a memorial service. ‘‘Seventy-four wonderful years, without serious illness until now. ‘‘My motto was ‘serious fun’ and I thank all my friends from all over the world for encouraging me in that pursuit,’’ he wrote.

Pants down — oh, cool UNTERS may drop everything when Daddy Cool himself — former Mondo Rock frontman Ross Wilson (pictured) — performs at the Williamstown RSL. Ross Wilson and The Peaceniks will play new and old material, including Daddy Cool’s 1971 No.1 hit Eagle Rock, at the Way Out West Roots Music Club on October 26. Since the 1980s, it’s been a regular sight at gigs for patrons to unbuckle belts and hobble around with their pants around their ankles when the song is played. ‘‘I didn’t invent it, Australians invented it as a response to Eagle Rock,’’ says Wilson, who turns 65 next month. ‘‘But in certain parts of the country, whenever Eagle Rock’s played —in bars, or uni, and it’s big in the military — they’ve got their pants around their ankles and sort of do this dance. Wilson, whose last visit to Williamstown was about five years ago, has warned the custom may reveal itself at the RSL. ‘‘The word’s getting out there; it’s happening a little bit more at my shows and also women are starting to do it,’’ he said. ‘‘Up in Queensland, the University of

P

Queensland, they lay claim, whether it’s true or not — I don’t think it is true but they claim that they invented it. ‘‘So, you’ve got this thing in the student bar that one of the rules in the bar is that patrons are not to be ejected if they drop their pants to this song, Eagle Rock, but they must replace them at the finish of the song.’’ Wilson’s performance is part of his Spring Carnival of Rock tour, which is promoting his latest album.

LeadWest shrugs off ‘Labor front’ label

CASH collected from any fire sale of TAFE campuses is unlikely to be invested back into education and training, Kororoit MP Marlene Kairouz says. She said that when asked about the sale of campuses marked for closure in leaked cabinet documents, Premier Ted Baillieu had failed to guarantee money raised would go back into the TAFE system. “First, the Baillieu government slashed $290 million in funding, forcing TAFEs across Victoria to sell assets, and now in a double blow the Premier has refused to guarantee that TAFEs can keep the money from asset sales so they can continue to operate,” Ms Kairouz said. This was “disastrous news” for the Victoria University TAFE, struggling after about $40 million was cut from its budget. The leaked documents reveal VU is closing its Newport campus and seeking funding equivalent to the sale price to help relocate services from its CBD campus to Footscray. VU TAFE supporters staged a vocal rally in Footscray Mall last Thursday, demanding the government reverse its TAFE funding cuts. The Friends of Victoria University rally was spurred by more cuts at VU, with youth guarantee funding dropping from $2.1 million to about $680,000 and at least 13 full-time youth support and education positions being lost. Friends of VU’s Dave Kerin said the cuts would impact most heavily on the disadvantaged in the

LIBERAL MP Bernie Finn has launched an extraordinary attack on western suburbs lobby group LeadWest, accusing it of being a Labor Party front. In State Parliament last Thursday, Mr Finn called on Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell to investigate the Maribyrnong-based organisation over the “hundreds of thousands of dollars” it was receiving from local councils. Mr Finn questioned whether LeadWest was fulfilling its role or simply boosting Labor’s prospects in the west. “There’s a view in Melbourne’s west that LeadWest is just an extremely well-funded organisation to provide an independent third-party endorsement for the Labor Party,” Mr Finn said. “The view can’t be easily dismissed when we consider that the only group in the west that defended the Gillard carbon tax last year during my

campaign against it was indeed LeadWest.” LeadWest manager (business and projects) Craig Rowley described the attack as ‘‘bizarre’’. Last week the Weekly reported on a LeadWest study showing the impact of the state government’s $300 million TAFE funding cuts in the west. “I am deeply concerned at the huge amount of ratepayer funds that possibly are being wasted, and I ask the minister to conduct an inquiry into the funding of LeadWest by western suburbs councils,’’ Mr Finn said. Mr Rowley said LeadWest had never defended the carbon tax but reflected the view of many businesses which saw new opportunities in a clean-energy economy. He added that businesses cited lack of training as the biggest issue in the area, hence LeadWest highlighting the potential damage to the area through the ‘‘bad public policy’’ of TAFE cuts. — Benjamin Millar

generous Locked kitchen doors ... skipped meals ... food for the children but nothing for mum. Australia may be one of the world’s wealthiest countries, but the cupboard is bare for thousands of struggling families. Benjamin Millar meets those who say they won’t stop until there is food on the table for all.

I

N a cavernous Yarraville warehouse, workers sporting ‘hi-vis’ vests scurry about like ants readying their nest for a particularly brutal winter. It could be any food distribution operation but for one aspect: nothing is charged for the tonnes of food going out the door every day. One by one, vans from charities across Melbourne drive up to waiting pallets inside the Foodbank Victoria warehouse, loading up that day’s allocation. The workers are mostly volunteers and the food has either been donated to Foodbank Victoria or manufactured to order for feeding those in need. CEO Ric Benjamin says Foodbank has grown from providing around 1 million kilograms of food in 2004 to more than five million kilograms last year. “We’ve been growing in excess of 20 per cent year on year in terms of the

amount of food we’re providing. We estimate there’s another 5 million kilograms of food we should be getting to people. We think the need is around 10 million kilograms a year, which is a huge amount.” Benjamin says the food saves families in distress about $35million a year, freeing up funds for other essentials such as shelter, clothing and electricity.

A

cross in Kensington, SecondBite plays its own part in rescuing food that would otherwise be dumped. Chief executive Elaine Montegriffo says the organisation’s aim is to take a bite out of the $7 billion worth of food Australians dump into landfill every year. SecondBite organises for leftover food from corporate events, restaurants, supermarkets and markets to get to where it’s needed most. Montegriffo says it’s no easy feat, but the wheels are kept turning by more than 500 volunteers pitching in nationwide. “There is no way we could do what we do without our volunteers.” Demand has risen every year as more families struggle to make ends meet. Montegriffo says the cost of feeding a family in Australia has escalated by 40 per cent in the past decade. “Yet at the same time you have all this perfectly edible food being thrown out because it doesn’t look perfect. That’s where we step in – rescuing this fresh food and providing it for free.” Catered and corporate events were once a source of massive food waste. Mass-prepared fresh food would find its way to landfill faster than a Melbourne Cup winner taking take the home straight at Flemington. But thanks to partnerships with venues and clubs across Melbourne, SecondBite can make sure untouched food ends up where it’s appreciated. The focus is on nutrition — not just any food, but the right food to keep people healthy. Montegriffo says more than 75 per cent of the food provided by Second Bite is fresh fruit and vegetables. “We have a really strong focus on improving nutrition. It’s not just about providing sustenance but looking at making sure people such as new arrivals and low-income families are receiving nutritious food in their diet.”

A

Doutta Galla Community Health Service report released in August describes ‘food insecurity’ as inconsistent access to safe, nutritionally sound, culturally acceptable foods from non-emergency sources. Vic Health says marginalised communities, including the unemployed, low-income earners

and renters, are four times more likely than the general population to experience food insecurity (20 per cent versus 5 per cent). Growing food insecurity has prompted the federal government to develop Australia’s first-ever national food plan to reduce barriers to a safe and nutritious food supply. Benjamin says an estimated 400,000 Victorians each year go hungry because they can’t afford food, adding that the wider community is often entirely unaware their neighbours may be going without. “People don’t advertise the fact it’s happening,” he stresses. “You could be living next door to someone who has food handouts, but how would you know?” He tells of one welfare agency visiting a home to kind a lock on the kitchen door. “Here are parents who have to lock the door because they can’t afford to allow their kids to snack. That’s a pretty horrific thing.” Benjamin says the welfare sector is under extra pressure as it gears up to help people who can no longer expect assistance from government. ‘‘The human condition is that if you have a problem you tend to deal with it yourself,’’ he says. ‘‘You will struggle with a mental illness or a disability. But eventually you might get to the point where you’ve been sleeping in the car for five days and you’ve got two kids on the back seat and you’ve run out of food, and that’s when you’ll turn for help — you’ll rip down a door to make sure your kids get fed.’’ As well as accepting donations of food, FoodBank is now working with manufacturers to produce staples such as pasta and rice, milk, tinned food, and sauces. Mr Benjamin says about $6 million in funding would enable Foodbank to produce $60 million in food — “sufficient to provide those staples to everyone in need around Australia”. Other initiatives include a breakfast club program to get children off to the right start for the day. The ‘club’ now operates at 50 schools; the target is 400. The Urban Street Harvest program being trialled in Maribyrnong invites backyard gardeners to donate their excess fruit and vegetable crops. “The program is very exciting because it’s about community engagement,” says Benjamin. “It’s about food, it’s about linking people into a sense that they can support other people in the community, but doing so in a non-threatening way.”

S

ometimes it can all seem too much for any one person to help. Like the child told to eat their spinach with thoughts of the starving in Africa, there seems to be a disconnection between our own habits and the prospect of

Stan and Karen Dickson. Picture: Darren Howe feeding the hungry. But Maidstone couple Karin and Stan Dickson believe there’s plenty we can all do. They’re putting their green thumbs to work in a Sunshine garden plot that is set to become a source of fresh fruit and vegetables for vulnerable Brimbank residents. Homeless people, families in need and clients of the Salvation Army’s Sunshine Youth Housing project will receive 80 per cent of produce grown at the Sunshine Community Garden on Devonshire Road. Karin Dickson says she and Stan, keen gardeners, have been busy weeding, planting and watering a mix of vegetables. “We’re really keen to be helping the aged, people who can’t afford to feed their families. It’s great knowing we can help this way.” The couple didn’t want to see out retirement indoors, opting to stay active and give back to the community with a project they could be proud of. “We are working out how we can keep providing for people and keep it sustainable,’’ Mrs Dickson says. ‘‘Everything should be ready to go in the new year.” She says encouraging the next generation of green thumbs is also high on the agenda. “It’s a learning program as well. A big part of the project is teaching the students from nearby schools about things like propagating seeds. The hope is the students will then encourage their families to grow healthy food at home.” Like FoodBank, SecondBite has been expanding every year. One of its recent achievements is establishing a direct delivery model, linking community welfare agencies directly with businesses in regional areas that might otherwise fall through the net. “Our overall aim in the long term is for us not to be needed,’’ says Montegriffo. ‘‘We want to see families and people not going hungry in Australia. There is more than enough food for everyone, we just need to make sure it gets where it needs to be.”

BY BENJAMIN MILLAR THE Environment Protection Authority has forced a Brooklyn transport company to stop dragging mud from its site onto Somerville Road. A pollution abatement notice issued to Slidecross Transport is the ninth such notice issued in Brooklyn this year and the 53rd in the past three years. EPA metro manager Richard Marks said the authority was continuing a crack down in the area to cut the amount of dust still escaping. Mr Marks said the councils must fix the roads, but industry would need to manage its sites effectively. The EPA has signed an agreement with Brimbank Council to ensure problematic roads causing dust are fixed, urgently. “Residents have had enough and the EPA wants to get these problems sorted so that the Brooklyn community can live unaffected by the impacts of industry,” Mr Marks said.

Slidecross Transport owner Paul Ribbera said the company regularly watered its site using a water-truck to ensure no dust escaped the property. He conceded mud had been an issue and there were plans to lay ballast on the driveway. “We will be sealing the driveway, as far as we can, so no mud goes onto the road,” he said. “They [EPA] want us to use concrete, but we are only leasing the property and there are big pipes running through the driveway. ‘‘We can’t spend $200,000 on sealing. We are asking the EPA to send a letter to the owners.” In 2010, Slidecross was fined by Brimbank Council and directed to cease its practice of fumigating with methyl bromide. Yarraville On The Nose group president Bruce Light said the EPA action was a step in the right direction. “Industry still isn’t doing enough,’’ he said. ‘‘They say they are complying with the licence agreements, but some of them have total disregard for residents in the area.”

The diner’s choice

The offal truth generation ago it was common to find offal on Aussie dinner tables, but these days even the word can turn stomachs. I remember when my dad relished black pudding and everyone wanted a piece of kidney in a stew; crumbed and fried lamb’s brains were considered a treat; no one turned their noses up at pigs’ trotters; and, God forbid, we even nibbled on chicken’s feet. The only thing my mum, mercifully, refused to cook was tripe. Eating the whole animal has now become de rigeuer among chefs, something they believe treats the beast with respect. But back in my parents’ day, it was more about thrift borne out of the rigours of the Depression era and a belief that these products were ‘good for you’. And they were right: they are still economical and still good for you. A common menu item that falls under the offal banner is pork belly, now a

foodie’s fave. It moved back into popularity with hardly a gasp from offalobjectors possibly because it was showcased by trendy chefs. As was black pudding which, made from animal blood, was recently thought to have the highest yuck factor but is now on all the upmarket brekkie lists. Beef cheeks are now a sought-after succulent treat, and dollops of bone marrow are quite the thing. Lambs’ brains are making a big comeback and even pigs’ trotters and sweetbreads are occasionally being turned out from cutting-edge kitchens. Lamb’s fry, or liver, is one offal product that’s never gone out of fashion, often a pub-grub staple and appearing more frequently at high-end restaurants. Liver, foie gras, has consistently maintained its glamour, possibly because French cuisine

Lamb’s fry, or liver, is one offal product that’s never gone out of fashion. has always been in Australian good-books. A contestant from this year’s Masterchef came unstuck with her cow’s tongue dish, but it was nevertheless a testament to how offal is now a creative choice for cooks. It just goes to show how celebrity chefs are powerfully influencing the foods we eat and demystifying animal products hitherto beyond the pale for Gens-X and Y. Maybe chicken gizzards ... or testicles ... are next?

Set at the quiet end of the strip, opposite the reserve and near the Williamstown botanical gardens and cafes, the location couldn’t be more desired. Modern conveniences are evident inside and out, with an electric gate accessing a carport, a punch code entry, and automated timber venetians inside. The imposing house of rendered brick construction with terracotta roof tiles is framed by a low-maintenance garden of palms and grasses.

MOTORING ●

The worldwide car of the moment Ewan Kennedy road tests the Toyota 86 sports coupe oyota’s little 86 sports coupe is taking the world by storm. We have recently spent time in the UK, Germany, France and Italy, and everywhere we go car lovers are talking about the return of Toyota to the sports car business. They are also bemoaning the ever-growing waiting lists for the 86. Toyota Australia won’t quote waiting times, but, anecdotally, potential owners are staring at up to six months before they have one sitting in their driveway on standby for the delights of an early Sunday morning drive on stretches of interesting roads. Toyota tells us the styling of the 86 was inspired by the 1965 Toyota 2000GT with its classic side-window shape, long bonnet and rear fender line. The shape is sporty and neat and likely to remain as timeless as those of its honourable ancestor. Two variants of the Toyota 86 are on offer Down Under: the base GT and up-specced GTS, both with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

T

Handling is exceptional, making it a true driver’s car and explaining the long waiting lists worldwide. The flat-four engine sits low and satisfyingly rearwards in the front of the car and drives the rear wheels. Steering inputs are fast and progressive and there’s plenty of positive feedback through the wheel. Toyota 86 sticks to the road with all the determination and verve of a true sports machine and like all the best in this class it seems to read the mind of the driver. The front bucket seats provide good lateral support when cornering and do so without being overly aggressive in the shape of the side bolsters. As a 2+2, the Toyota 86 has no illusions about carrying rear seat passengers. A very high compression ratio of 12.5:1 gives the naturally aspirated engine excellent performance across the entire rev range. Starting at an amazingly low $29,990 for the manual Toyota 86 GT, the price rises to $35,490 for the GTS manual. Automatic adds $2500 to both grades.

Global appeal: Sporty lines of the all-new Toyota 86 sports coupe are neat, simple and likely to remain timeless.

UNBEATEN and near flawless in all aspects, the Newport Rams are enjoying the ride while it lasts in the Baseball Victoria summer league division 2. The Rams have been merciless in the opening three weeks of the season with a three-peat of crushing wins sending them to equal top of the table. The mercy-rule had to be enacted by the umpires after seven innings such was their dominance in Sunday’s 12-0 whitewash of the Port Melbourne Mariners at KC White Reserve. Rams assistant coach Gavin Young could not have envisaged a better start to 2012-13. ‘‘It’s still early and there’s a lot of baseball still to be had, but it’s where we want to be at the start of the season,’’ he told the Weekly. ‘‘We didn’t want to give up any games early on. ‘‘We’ll keep building and getting better as the year goes on. It’s a good position to be in.’’ The Rams had the Mariners reeling early. They piled on nine runs in three innings and there was no catching them. Power hitter Dean Malthouse laid the foundations for the Rams with three hits and three RBIs. ‘‘He’s just been outstanding with the bat this year,’’ Young said. ‘‘He’s coming up with several hits every week and scoring the runs, which he’s in the line-up to do. He’s just a powerful guy.’’ Malthouse’s experience in the game has been invaluable for the Rams. He is well travelled, having spent the best part of five years playing in the college system in the US, and is

‘It’s where we want to be at the start of the season’ — Gavin Young nasty, giving up just seven runs in three games. Griffin Weir worked the first four innings on the mound, Liam VicaryLovegrove relieved for two, and Matthew Lawman completed the shutout. Lawman is a critical piece in what is a largely young Rams side. He’s the backbone of the defence with his ability to make the big plays at shortstop. ‘‘Matty’s been solid up the middle for us,’’ Young said. ‘‘We’ve got a pretty good defensive side. Virtually every player in the side has played state level baseball, so they all know the importance of defence.’’ The Rams hit the road on Sunday for a clash with Chelsea at Edithvale Road Reserve.

Aces lasso Yankees’ pitcher to add sizzle MELBOURNE Aces will have a New York Yankee on their books in the Australian Baseball League this season. The Aces have brought in exciting youngster Zachary Arneson to fill one of their pitching slots. The 24-year-old is a right arm pitcher with a blistering 97mph (155km) fastball. Arneson is looking to rejuvenate his career after two injury-interrupted seasons in the Big Apple,

which included just three outings at Single-A Charleston RiverDogs this season and 11 appearances for Staten Island at class A level a year earlier. Aces manager Phil Dale is thrilled to have brought in the Yankees’ ninth-round selection in the 2011 draft. ‘‘We need reliable guys on the mound who can come in and do a job for us. Zachary will be solid, a ninth-round pick from a big organisation. ‘‘For the Yankees to spend the money, they must regard him pretty highly.

Mercy shown to Rams’ victims BY LANCE JENKINSON

‘‘He’ll be a great addition to our bullpen.’’ Aces general manager Windsor Knox is salivating at the prospect of a Yankee sending down thunderbolts at the Melbourne Ball Park in Altona. ‘‘It’s a fantastic day for the Aces and our fans to be associated with the New York Yankees,’’ he said. ‘‘We look forward to seeing Zachary’s contribution to the team’s success this summer.’’ Arneson will land in time for the Aces’ big opening weekend three-game series against Adelaide Bite on November 9-11.

IT was March come early for the Williamstown Wolves. On the menu was Fitzroy, a proud club unlucky to be relegated from division 1 and heading into the game on the back of two narrow one-run losses. The Lions might have been 0-2, but the Wolves were under no illusions about the mammoth job they faced against a team likely to push for a finals berth. ‘‘They’re a quality outfit,’’ Wolves playing president Ryan Camov said. ‘‘They were unfortunate to drop down from division 1 last year after losing eight games by a run or less. ‘‘It was a good game of baseball. A high standard played by both sides.’’ The Wolves, eager to bounce back from a shock defeat to the Werribee Giants seven days earlier, held on for a gutsy 9-7 win at Merri Park. The momentum see-sawed throughout the game, but the Wolves were in front on the scoreboard from go to whoa. ‘‘We broke it open in the eighth,’’ Camov said. ‘‘We scored four runs in that inning to take a 9-5 lead and gave up two in the last. ‘‘We’d been in front all day, then it got close through the middle and we pushed away again in the eighth.’’ Playing coach Dean Marnell was a big factor in the outcome. The first-year leader went 4-from-4 and is hitting .875 after eight at bats this season. ‘‘He’s 7-from-8, which is just phenomenal,’’ Camov said. ‘‘He’d be a league ahead of the rest of the hitters in this league at the moment. He’s been stroking the ball and making it look easy.’’ Veteran starting pitcher David Asp and new recruit Josh Lee worked hard on the mound. Asp has turned back time to own the starter’s role. ‘‘David’s in his late 30s so he’s doing good to come out and still be very competitive at this level,’’ Camov said. ‘‘He was great again today. That’s three starts he’s had and they’ve all been competitive.’’ The Wolves return home for a blockbuster with St Kilda at Greenwich Reserve on Sunday.

Wheeling-dealing A’s reeling BY LANCE JENKINSON IT has been a disastrous start to the Bowls Victoria premier division for Altona. The new-look A’s have been wiped out in their first two games. As if a 15-shot road loss to Clayton in the season opener wasn’t bad enough, they backed up with an even worse performance on their home track on Saturday. The A’s failed to claim a rink in an 86-57 loss to an impressive Melbourne that made the hosts look second rate. A’s player-coach Brett Dodd has called for patience as he tries to get a top side with a number of new faces to gel. ‘‘It hasn’t been the best of starts, that’s for sure,’’ he told the Weekly. ‘‘We’ve got eight new players and they’re all playing different roles. ‘‘It’s going to take a bit of time to get the hang of it. ‘‘There’s no doubt they will. They’re too good as players not to.’’ The A’s were the big wheelers and dealers in the off season. They were widely tipped to be the big improvers

after missing out on the finals last season. Dodd is adamant his side is good enough to compete for the title. Though, he acknowledges they are a long way off where they need to be. ‘‘They [Melbourne] were good, but at the same time, we were pretty bad. ‘‘They’ve shown us what [level] we need to get to. ‘‘We’re taking a long-term view. ‘‘We know we’ve got the side to challenge. ‘‘The guys are working their guts out, so it will turn around sooner rather than later, I’m pretty sure.’’ One of the bright spots for the A’s in the early rounds has been the form of Tino Krizos. The lead in the Dodd rink has been a pleasant revelation. ‘‘He’s was a guy who was probably on the fringe at the start, but he’s done everything right, worked hard and is reaping the benefits,’’ Dodd said. ‘‘He hasn’t played a bad game. ‘‘He’s been sensational right through the practice games and through the first two games of the season. ‘‘He’s probably been the most consistent player through the whole side.’’ Skip Brad Peck has picked up his strong form

where he left off last season, but his quartet was still edged out by a shot. The other skips, Dodd, David Zitter and Brenton Coad, were beaten heavily. Altona simply has to find a way to win on the road against Mentone on Saturday to keep within reach of the leading sides. ‘‘It’s a big game,’’ Dodd said. ‘‘If we can get a win under the belt, we can get the confidence up and get going.’’ Bowls Saturday pennant Premier division: Altona 0-57 lt Melbourne 18-86.

Sun shines, but Bulldog bats fail to make hay BY LANCE JENKINSON FOOTSCRAY Edgewater came up well short in its run chase to lose by a resounding 77 runs to Prahran in Victorian Premier Cricket at Merv Hughes Oval on Saturday. The Bulldogs would have gone to the innings changeover with a hint of confidence after restricting the visitors to 8-173 off 50 overs after four main bowlers kept the runs to a minimum. Brad Robertson, one of the standout bowlers for the Dogs last summer, maintained the rage in his first outing with a strangling 1-18 off 10 overs, while Hamish Winter-Irving was solid with 0-36. Andrew McCammond and Ben Green benefited from the openers’ pressure, bringing about three breakthroughs apiece. McCammond took 3-21 off 10 overs, including the top three in the Prahran batting order, while Green had identical figures to put the brakes on later in the innings. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, their own toporder batsmen failed to take charge. Openers West Robinson (nine) and Dean Russ (13) got going, but failed to capitalise on good starts and the Dogs were staggering at 2-41. Russ’s dismissal had a domino effect with the Bulldogs losing 6-24 in the middle of the order, leaving too much work for the tailend. The Bulldogs have a massive opportunity not only to square the ledger but forge a winning record with back-to-back one-day games this weekend. First up, it’s a trip to Frankston Peninsula on Saturday, followed by a home clash with North Melbourne on Sunday.

Seagulls in the mix LISTON Tennis Club will be a part of the inaugural Asia-Pacific Tennis League. It will consist of five conferences (SA, WA, Vic, NSW/ACT and Queensland), made up of six teams in each state. All up, 28 men’s and 28 women’s teams will be competing for their respective conferences next month, with the winners of each conference to move on to the ATL playoffs at Melbourne Park in the second week of the Australian Open. Teams from New Zealand, Asia and the Pacific Islands will be invited to the playoffs to find out which is the best club team in the region. The ATL will use an innovative scoring system with four-game sets, no-ad scoring and a number of other concepts. Liston, coached by Dane Nebel and based at Commonwealth Reserve in Williamstown, will be known as the Liston Seagulls. All teams will have a nickname and will play in team colours. The ATL will hold ‘super rounds’ with all teams playing at the one venue, as opposed to a home-and-away format. Liston’s super round will be a Friday night on November 16. The first round will be played at Donvale on a Super Sunday five days earlier. The inaugural Seagulls squad is: Sam Groth, Rubin Statham, James Lemke, Dayne Kelly, Rameez Juniad, Efthimios Efthimiadis, Jackson Clark and Miles Andrew. — Lance Jenkinson
