Major Hazard Facility Planning Hobsons Bay City Council will continue to advocate to the state government and major hazard facility operators to urgently conduct risk assessments of their facilities in Hobsons Bay. The Council will also work closely with local MPs to push for the assessments to help with safety and planning around major hazard facilities. Hobsons Bay is home to eight major hazard facilities and careful planning is needed to ensure the facilities and the community can co-exist safely.

Draft Disability Access and Inclusion Strategy Hobsons Bay City Council is asking people to ‘have your say’ on the Council’s Draft Disability Access and Inclusion Strategy 2013-2017. The draft strategy will ensure the Council’s services and programs are accessible, inclusive and meet the needs of people with disabilities. The goals are for people with disabilities in Hobsons Bay to be able to get around easily, to actively participate in the community and to be better supported. Greater awareness also forms part of the plan. To view the plan, visit www.hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay and comment by Wednesday, 20th March.

Draft Play Space Strategy 2013-2023 Hobsons Bay City Council’s draft Play Space Strategy 2013-2023 is now available for comment. The strategy provides direction for playgrounds, skate and BMX facilities, fitness equipment and other informal sporting facilities, such as multi-sport courts over the next 10 years. The plan is limited to Council-owned or managed land. To view the plan, visit www.hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay People are asked to comment by Wednesday, 27th March.

Synthetic Sports Surfaces Feasibility Study Hobsons Bay City Council has finalised its Synthetic Sports Surfaces Feasibility Study to identify the need for new major sports synthetic surfaces in Hobsons Bay. The study will be placed on public exhibition for six weeks for the community to comment. It will guide the future consideration of sport synthetic surfaces in Hobsons Bay.

Operator slammed for ignoring ‘duty of care’ as prisoner dies EXCLUSIVE BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK THE mother of a Port Phillip Prison inmate has slammed the authorities after a prisoner died on Sunday. The woman, who asked not to be named while her son is incarcerated for driving offences, said the man apparently hanged himself. The inmate’s death followed a fire in a prisoner’s cell on Monday last week

‘‘G4S have already been found five times to have contributed to deaths of inmates in their care by suicide.’’ — Charandev Singh at Victoria’s privately run maximum security prison in Truganina. G4S operates the jail, which has the capacity for 951 men and received its first prisoners in 1997. Centre for the Human Rights of Imprisoned People spokesman Charandev Singh said the prison operator had been found by the coroner to have contributed to previous deaths in custody. ‘‘G4S have already been found five times to have contributed to deaths of inmates in their care by suicide. On four of those occasions it was in relation to not providing a safe physical environment for prisoners in terms of the provision of hanging points.’’ Prisoners’ Legal Service principal solicitor Matilda Alexander said it was more than 20 years since the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in

Custody recommended all hanging points in prisons be removed. ‘‘How many more deaths have to occur before these recommendations are fully implemented?’’ The inmate’s mother said she believed the prison operator had a duty of care to prisoners. ‘‘I don’t know why there’s no cameras there for starters. There should be cameras just outside the cells in the hallway so they can see what goes on. ‘‘Even a lot of the fights and things that go on in there, there’s no cameras

I think the main cause of a lot of what goes on in there is prisoners request to see a psych if they’re struggling with depression or whatever and they just get told, ‘Well, you know, it’s in your head’. They’re not given medication, not even those in pain.’’ A Corrections Victoria spokesman confirmed that a 36-year-old prisoner was found dead on Sunday. ‘‘Local police attended the prison, and the matter has been referred to the coroner for investigation in line with normal practice. The matter is not

considered suspicious,’’ he said. ‘‘In a separate, unrelated incident, a prisoner used a book to light a small fire in his cell at Port Phillip Prison on Monday, February 11. ‘‘Staff responded immediately and the fire was extinguished within minutes. No staff or prisoners were injured and the damage was restricted to a few small singe marks on a wall.’’ G4S spokeswoman Emma Lindell said that ‘‘due to this matter being investigated by the coroner we are unable to comment further’’.

‘Fewer pokies’ suits council

SARAH HARRIS QUE SERA

Bats come down from the belfry ost people have pink batts in their ceiling. We have grey ones. And no one died installing them. The bats insinuated their own way in through a small hole at the apex of the roof of the A-frame and colonised the wall space. We’re not sure which of the 21 or so species of Microchiroptera found in Victoria our tiny coresidents belong to. Now and again the microbats become disoriented and fly inside the house when they really mean to go outside. When this happens we dim the lights and throw open the doors so they can find their way into the night. Of course, my husband would claim he routinely wakes to find an old bat blinking blindly from the pillow next to him. Just this morning I found a stray sheltering behind the chopping board. One of my more fastidious friends is horrified. When I pointed out that bats are probably about as hygienic as she is — given the number of microbes living on, and in, the average healthy person outnumbers human cells by 10 to 1 — she started adding Dettol to her bathwater. But she still wouldn’t back down on bats. And, after I suggested they were also rather more useful than dental nurses, she just got huffy. It’s true, though. Each night microbats consume up to half their body weight in insects, acting as an important natural control, particularly of mosquitoes. With barely 20 per cent of all mammal species that existed at the time of European settlement now surviving in the inner suburbs, there’s no shame in being a little batty.

BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK WILLIAMSTOWN Football Club says a local high school will benefit from a new gym if five more pokies are installed at Newport, but a gambling researcher says the move is ‘‘like Robin Hood in reverse’’. As reported by the Weekly, the club applied to Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation to install five more pokies at its Seagulls Nest Hotel. The hotel is near a Centrelink office and less than two kilometres from social housing. Hobsons Bay Council last week voted to make a submission to the commission ‘‘expressing concern for any increase in gaming machines’’. The council’s gaming policy ‘‘supports the reduction of EGMs and opposes additional EGMs . . . particularly where an increase of EGMs is demonstrated to have a negative impact.’’ But Strand ward’s Cr Peter Hemphill told the meeting that the

council’s pokies policy was ambiguous. ‘‘I note the policy also says — which seems to be at odds with the last statement — that all EGM applications will be considered against their ability to demonstrate comparative community benefit.’’ Cr Hemphill moved an alternative motion ‘‘that council make a submission to the VCGLR that while expressing its general concern about any increase in the numbers of electronic gaming machines at the Seagulls Nest Hotel in Newport, that it supports the application by the Williamstown Football Club.’’ However, the motion lapsed when it failed to get a seconder. Football club president Trevor Monti said that in 1996, Seagulls Nest had 66 machines, so the club was seeking to reinstate its original number of machines, not increase the number. He said Williamstown High School wanted to build a gymnasium but had no money to do so. The club’s players also need-

Picture: Steve Lightfoot ed a gymnasium. ‘‘We would be prepared to substantially fund the planning, building and development and fitting out of a gymnasium, which would be obviously a long-term asset to the school and, of course, to ourselves,’’ Monti said. ‘‘Now, we can only do that if we’re operating a profitable gaming venue.’’ He said five more machines would not contribute to disadvantage in Newport. ‘‘The difference is so minute, it’s ridiculous to even be arguing about it.’’

Trader robbed in square of terrors BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK ‘‘I COULD have been the next Jill Brookes,’’ an emotional woman told fellow traders, police and council officers gathered at the back of a shop in Altona’s Harrington Square shopping centre last Thursday night. Ms Brookes, the owner of Westside Stories bookshop, was almost bashed to death on July 20. The panicked trader told how her business had been robbed by a man who rolled a balaclava down his face as he entered her shop. She was fearful of being identified. ‘‘If I didn’t run to the back, I could have been the next Jill Brookes.’’ The very next night, three men were arrested and charged with trying to steal a car in the square. Traders heard that Ms Brookes, 61 at the time of her attack, had had a metal plate inserted in her head. All her shop stock will be sold by the end of next month as she has no plans to return. Since her bashing, in Harrington Square there has been a robbery, attempted burglary, burglary, smashed window, damaged fence, repeated graffiti attacks and young people gathering at the

square for fights and parties. One time, about 40 people showed up after a girl posted a ‘party’ on Facebook. But for traders, the last seven months have been so quiet compared to usual that ‘‘it’s almost surreal’’. Police will conduct a crime prevention audit of Harrington Square, which is the only Hobsons Bay shopping centre to come under a police portfolio. Sergeant Tony O’Doherty, who is in charge of looking after the square, said police would welcome protective services officers at Westona train station, which is directly opposite. ‘‘This whole concept seems to be working far better than anyone ever dreamed it would,’’ he said of PSOs. ‘‘They’re making a lot of arrests and it’s cramping the crooks’ style.’’ Sergeant O’Doherty urged traders to follow the ‘‘broken windows’’ theory, which, he said, had brought down crime in New York. The theory states that removing graffiti and repairing criminal damage prevents further vandalism and more serious crime.

$1bn boost to keep manufacturing jobs in the west MANUFACTURERS in Melbourne’s west stand to benefit from a $1 billion-plus federal government package to support Australia’s manufacturing industry. The government’s A Plan for Australian Jobs aims to shore up local jobs and tap into a bigger slice of the resources pie while making a concerted play for the growing Asian market. The plan is predicted to be worth $1.6 billion a year in extra work to local businesses and has been backed by the manufacturing union and key industry players. Victoria’s manufacturing sector is worth $28 billion a year to the state economy and employs more than 310,000 people.

manufacturing is in decline because its share of the economy is in relative decline, but it’s just that other sectors are growing faster.” The government will spend $500 million on 10 new ‘industry innovation precincts’ by next year, one of which will be in southeast Melbourne. Australian Manufacturing Workers Union (AMWU) national secretary Paul Bastian said the most promising part of the plan was the prospect of tapping into the wealth generated by the resources sector. “Every billion dollars we drag out of the resource sector, into local content, onto our factory floors, sustains or creates 10,000 jobs in this country.” — Benjamin Millar

Cold store workers fight for fairer pay BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK WAREHOUSE workers at a Laverton distribution centre could be headed for industrial action after learning they are among the lowest paid in Melbourne. Packers and forklift drivers at the Polar Fresh Coles Laverton Distribution Centre are paid a base rate of $23.81 per hour — $6.35 less than those doing similar work for Woolworths in Broadmeadows and $5.37 below IGA cold store workers in Laverton. Unlike their counterparts, Polar Fresh workers do not receive shift loadings for their whole shift. They are also paid less than those doing similar work supplying Coles in other parts of Melbourne. Versacold at Laverton, which supplies Coles and Woolworths, pays a base rate of $27.40 per hour after 18 months and full shift loadings, while an Eastern Creek distribution centre for Coles pays $28.72 per hour and penalties for a whole shift. National Union of Workers organiser Matt Toner said Polar Fresh workers were fighting for the same respect as other Coles workers. ‘‘Our campaign is really just about justice and respect and it’s about making sure that these

workers who work equally as hard as those other Coles workers — in, some would say, a more difficult environment, they’re in a cold environment — that they get treated with the same respect that other Coles workers get. ‘‘If you work afternoon shift — that starts at 1pm and finishes at 9pm — you are only paid the loadings for the last three hours and that’s not the industry standard. ‘‘We’re obviously trying to resolve this before it gets to strike or industrial action.’’ Kealba single mother Kelly Gibbs said she was among those worst affected. Part of the pay from her afternoon shift is spent on a babysitter for her primary-school age son. ‘‘I’m a single parent basically just trying to make ends meet. I’m the only person who brings an income into the household. ‘‘We all enjoy working at Polar Fresh — you know, it’s a good environment, we’re all like one big family. It’s just being paid lower wages compared to everybody else.’’ Deer Park’s Tam Nguyen said a lot of employees were shocked to realise they were among the lowest paid warehouse workers. Polar Fresh did not respond before the Weekly went to print.

Set to strike: Tam Nguyen and Kelly Gibbs with Leanne Rowe, Rachael Bunny and Tracy Baking.

BROOKLYN residents are calling on Hobsons Bay Council to ‘‘honour its commitment’’ to develop a large open space on the site of a house it bought in Cypress Avenue. The council plans to subdivide a property at 31 Cypress Avenue and create a four-metre-wide walkway before selling the surplus land. The council last week voted to nominate a subcommittee to hear a submission from the Brooklyn Residents Action Group (BRAG), which is calling for the whole block to be turned into a 15-metre walkway. BRAG secretary Bert Boere said the group objected to the council’s plan to subdivide and sell part of the land. ‘‘BRAG calls on all councillors to honour this decision made in the 2012-13 budget and proceed to develop 31 Cypress Avenue as a large open space area linking the two Brooklyn communities,’’ he said. ‘‘Through a request from BRAG in 2011, on behalf of all Brooklyn residents [former]

HOPES for the future of dental care in the west hinge on the state government’s May budget, according to the Western Region Health Centre. A taskforce investigating Footscray’s long-troubled dental clinic, chaired by western suburbs MP Andrew Elsbury, last year reported vermin, termites, electrical hazards and rusty chairs were just some of the challenges putting the service at risk. The taskforce identified seven options to improve infrastructure and services, including a $9 million option to join adult and child dental services — now split over two sites — to one redeveloped 12-chair dental clinic on the Paisley Street site. WRHC is the largest provider of

 

public emergency and general dental care in Melbourne’s west. Deputy CEO Nicole Bartholomeusz this week told the Weekly the government was fully briefed and aware of the dire situation of the centre’s dental facilities and of the urgent need for new facilities to ensure the health and well-being of residents. “The age of our dental buildings, built in the 1960s, and equipment limits the range and type of services we can deliver, and it places uncertainty around how long we can continue to deliver vital dental services to the community,� she said. “Many of our 10,000-plus dental clients are among the community’s most vulnerable, including refugees, mentally ill and homeless people, who without access to public dental care would

be unable to access treatment.� WRHC has been working with local and state governments to advocate for the people of Melbourne’s west, arguing good dental health is vital for general health and wellbeing. “The Department of Health has developed a proposal for funding a new dental clinic that WRHC hopes will receive funding in the state budget.’’ Health Minister David Davis declined to answer a series of questions on the government’s funding intentions or the longterm viability of the dental clinics. His spokeswoman said details of the 2013-14 state budget would be outlined in May. “It should be noted that the previous Labor government sat on its hands and did nothing for 11 years. The government remains

Council throws hands in air on disaster plan

Bite on Spring Street to fix dental clinic BY BENJAMIN MILLAR

concerned about the $200 million withdrawal of the Chronic Dental Disease Scheme by the Gillard government and the effect this will have on communities in western metropolitan region.�

HOBSONS Bay Council is calling on the state government and major hazard facility operators to ‘‘urgently’’ assess risks at eight sites in Hobsons Bay. Evolve Development plans a high-density, high-rise development on the former Port Phillip Woollen Mill site within 300 metres of Mobil’s Point Gellibrand tank farm which supplies half the state’s fuel. Mobil spokeswoman Melanie Saliba said it would be happy to help the appropriate authority. Western suburbs Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury has advised the council that it is the authority responsible for developing a disaster plan. According to the Former Port Phillip Woollen Mill advisory committee report dated May 10, 2011, the onus is on the owner of the former Port Phillip Woollen Mill site to prepare an evacuation plan. Owner, Evolve managing director Ashley Williams, said a risk assessment had been ‘‘extensively considered’’ at advisory committee hearings, where it was agreed that the only party that could prepare a detailed and accurate risk assessment was Mobil. ‘‘Despite requests, Mobil has declined to provide any data that would allow us to undertake this task.’’ ■ Evolve’s bid to demolish the Oriental Hotel, which could be Victoria’s oldest three-storey brick hotel, is scheduled to be determined by the council’s special planning committee tomorrow night. — Goya Dmytryshchak

As Melbourne prepares for the Avalon Airshow, Mark Smith shows how the city’s west is a haven for people who want to get their feet off the ground for a flight of fancy

T

en kilometres to the west of Werribee lies a small airfield that’s home to an unusual aircraft. While a Jetstar Airbus flies overhead, inbound to Avalon, a small engine roars as a strange-looking cart with two people on board moves forward, attached to a large parachute that fills with air. Inside, pilot Steve Conte is introducing potential student Darryl Deller to the joys of flying an Aerochute. A short run along the bumpy runway and the cart, which looks ungainly on the ground, lifts off and heads skywards, suddenly gaining a smooth grace like a soaring bird. Conte has been operating from the strip for 15 years, teaching people to fly the Aerochute aircraft his company builds in Coburg. “We get a lot of people who just want to have a try flying in something that’s

different. It’s an unusual, but very safe, way to get into the air,’’ Conte says. ‘‘It’s a lot of fun and very easy to fly. You can’t stall them or spin them, and if you have an engine failure you just parachute slowly down to the ground.” At the end of his half-hour flight, Deller agrees. “It’s fantastic. You get up there and have the wind in your face. You look down and realise there’s nothing between you and the ground except the seat you’re sitting on. “It’s certainly very adventurous. I’ve never done anything like this before. Steve’s a great pilot. He let me take the controls, which I didn’t expect.” Another potential student, Jodie Wood, of Bonbeach, was equally impressed with her Aerochute experience. “It was like being on a flying motorbike just above the ground. My favorite part was watching the kangaroos as we flew above them.

“It’s definitely a thrill, but a very comfortable thrill. The seat is like sitting in your lounge chair.” At RAAF Williams, Point Cook, a slightly more traditionallooking aeroplane allows adventurous passengers the chance to step back in time and fly in a 1941 Tiger Moth trainer. Garry Herne operates Vintage Tiger Moth Joyflights. When he’s not piloting the silver biplane he’s owned for 12 years, he’s an international airline captain on an Airbus A330. “People love the feeling of stepping back to a more romantic era of flying,” says Herne as he readies his classic aircraft. “The fact that the aeroplane is still fully certified despite being built in 1941 gives my passengers confidence when it comes

to doing aerobatics, which most customers choose in their flight.” Sarah Smith, of Wyndham Vale was awed by her aerobatic flight in the Tiger Moth. “That’s amazing. I’m shaking. It’s insane, my goodness. I’m actually speechless. “I’d definitely recommend it to my friends. If I can do it anyone can do it. It’s really cool, being in the open air.”

COVERSTORY TRY AND FLY Several organisations in Melbourne’s west offer trial instructional flights and lessons for people wanting to experience the thrill of being at the controls of a powered aircraft or glider. These include: Aerochute International Wyndham Vale - aerochute.com.au AirSports Sunbury Airfield, goflying.com.au Amber Aviation Essendon Airport - amberaviation.com.au Geelong Gliding Club Bacchus Marsh Airfield - gliding-in-melbourne.org Kyneton Aero Club Kyneton Airfield - kynetonaeroclub.org Melton Air Services Melton Airfield - meltonairservices.com.au Point Cook Flying Club RAAF Willams - pointcook.org TVSA Pilot Training Bacchus Marsh Airfield - tvsa.com.au

For those who want a more intense flight experience, Herne also owns a Yak 52 – a former Russian military trainer built in 1991. The Yak can expose those who want a highenergy thrill to over 5G (five times their body weight) during aerobatics. “The Yak allows people to enjoy a huge adrenaline rush as they experience the sort of aerobatics they see at airshows like Avalon,” says Herne. Bacchus Marsh airfield holds the distinction of hosting three gliding clubs, making it the largest gliding operation in Australia with 18 club gliders and a combined membership of more than 200. Geelong Gliding Club is the oldest, having formed in 1929, there’s also the Victorian Motorless Flight Group and the Beaufort Gliding Club. Geelong club member Spiro Mallia started flying at Bacchus Marsh in 1982. He is passionate about engineless flight. “Gliding to me is free flight,” says Mallia. “It’s the experience of soaring, being carried up by the forces of nature and being able to use that to fly across country. It’s the nearest thing to a magic carpet. “When I’m gliding I thinking about controlling the aircraft, looking around for other aircraft and simply enjoying the view. I’ve been flying for 30 years and I never get tired of it. “Bacchus Marsh is a well-kept airfield close to Melbourne. It’s a real asset for the western suburbs.’’ Malia says a combination of flat ground and hills around the airport give the area lift yearround. And flying in a club atmosphere is a great way to learn to fly and meet like-minded people.

amazing. I’m shaking. It’s insane, “That’s

my goodness. I’m actually

speechless”

“We try and be as welcoming as we can to visitors, so we go out of our way to greet people who might be interested. There are a range of ways people can come here and try gliding. They can just try a passenger flight or join the club for a weekend and receive a number of instructional flights.” His advice to people who have always wanted to fly? Act on your dream. “Come along and do it. You don’t even have to call. If it’s reasonable weather we are out here.” Heading north, Kyneton airfield has a strong club tradition of fostering recreational aviation. The small but busy flying school allows locals to achieve their dream of flight, and the neat line of hangars is home to about 50 private planes. Norm Edmunds is a long-term member at the Kyneton Aero Club. His flying machine is a homebuilt Corby Starlet that gestated in his garage over a six-year period. “You don’t so much fly the Corby as wear it when you are airborne! It’s a personal fighter plane,” Edmunds says after a Sunday morning blast around the patch. Kyneton Aero Club president Matt Henderson sees his job as an opportunity to help the airfield grow while still keeping neighbours happy. “For a long time we were invisible to the

local council,” says Henderson. “Members from years gone by felt that was a good thing. But such an arrangement can be a double-edged sword for a flying club. There is the element of out-of-sight, out-of-mind. “We had some problems last year when the council discovered it had this asset and no real plan for what to do with it. “A number of plans appeared, from close the airfield to develop the airfield. Thankfully after a campaign by aviation groups the council saw the value in keeping a local landing ground viable in a community context. So we are still here for the next 15 years”. I

Laos ride a mother of a challenge BY BENJAMIN MILLAR t will be a Mother’s Day with a difference for a West Footscray woman this year when she sets off on a cycling adventure through the Laos countryside. Janita Suter of charity Save the Children will be one of a team of 12 riders raising money ahead of their trip to build a new village health clinic in the remote north of the country for some of the world’s most vulnerable children. Ms Suter says it will be her first visit to a country renowned for its natural beauty but poor health outcomes for its youngest people . “I work for Save the Children and I’m a mother of two children. I hear a lot of startling statistics and one that I heard was that every day in Laos, 36 children under the age of five die due to preventable and treatable illnesses. As a parent I find that appalling and confronting.” All those taking part in Save the Children’s inaugural Mother’s Day Cycle event will

volunteer in the organisation’s Laos health and education programs while learning about Laotian culture. “It is actually around the part of the country where it [the clinic] is going to be built and we are going to meet a lot of the people whose lives will be improved by this,’’ Ms Suter said. “The ride is suitable for anyone whether young or old. We’re being followed by a support bus and the terrain is fairly flat.’’ Each of the participants must raise $7000 ahead of the trip, just over half going directly to help build a new $75,000 clinic and train staff, with the remainder to cover travel costs including flights, meals and accommodation. “Everyone has the power to do something about these things. It’s a way for people to do something life-changing; these types of trips can be such a great experience.” The 13-day adventure runs from May 12-24, including five days of cycling.

Silent classic caps a musical night BY BENJAMIN MILLAR THOUSANDS of visitors flocked to Yarraville on Saturday for the suburb’s 27th festival. Enjoying the perfect weather, crowds were treated to a host of entertainment as musicians, dancers and performers added plenty of colour to the festivities. There were events for all ages, including community singalongs, free rides, food stalls and circus workshops. Highlights included the return of Prams on Parade, a pet parade and treasure hunt, as well as a chance for people to have “a true go” at trugo, the west’s very own game. Maribyrnong mayor Catherine Cumming said events like the festival drew people from all over Melbourne and helped make Maribyrnong a true “festival city”. “I would like to congratulate the new festival committee for bringing some great, fresh ideas to the festival,” she said. “They have worked tirelessly as volunteers over the last few months to make it happen and deserve a big thanks from us all for their hard work.” The evening was capped off with a special screening in the pop-up park of Buster Keaton’s silent film classic The General, backed by a quartet of musicians providing a soundtrack. In the swing of things: It was a fun time for young and old at Yarraville Festival, with plenty of activities including a recital by Yarraville Mouth Organ Club members. Pictures: Benjamin Millar

Cornershop is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and there’s a constant stream of people — parents, prams, workmates, friends — stopping by. Lunch is an approachable menu of hot dishes, toasted pides and salads. You’ll find meatballs with turkish bread and parmesan ($15.50) or slowroasted lamb with cracked wheat, pomegranate, yoghurt and tahini ($20). The beetroot salad with barberries, freekeh and feta cheese ($13) is great value in its size and freshness. A pretty ceramic bowl holds fleshy chunks of beetroot amid the grain and cheese. It’s filled out with lots of raddichio and frissee leaves, finished with a bity dressing that lifts it well. There’s a short list of pides, perhaps a smoked trout with horseradish cream, capers and rocket ($12) or the classic combination of ham and

The coffee at Cornershop is wellmade and another reason for its popularity. They buy in Coffee Supreme brand, using their Origin blend, which produces a rich ‘chocolatey’ coffee that works well with or without milk.

Introduced by a high curved fence for added privacy, landscaped gardens including plant boxes and pebbled and paved paths create a pleasant welcome on arrival. Inside, the clean lines and subtle colour scheme allow new owners to add their own touch. The main bedroom has a fitted walk-in wardrobe, an ensuite with shower and mirrored wall-mounted vanity while french doors open to a brick paved sitting area in the front garden. This nod to an older style features in the lounge room with a brick fireplace. Cosy up on the couch down one end of the long room and use the other for a study nook or a formal dining area. White double doors open out to versatile living areas and bedrooms. A good-sized bedroom has built-in wardrobes while

F

next door there is a bathroom with bath, shower and heat lamp. There is a separate toilet. At the end of the short hallway is a room that could be used for many things including a study, bedroom or theatre room. As it comes with built-in wardrobes and its own entry via sliding doors, it’s perfect for a teenager or a grandparent. And it doesn’t stop there with another room suited for a study, studio or smaller bedroom. The main living hub has a relatively new kitchen with ample bench space and latte-coloured cabinetry. Smeg dishwasher, oven, stove top and Blanco rangehood provide the necessities while a meals area has plenty of room to host large gatherings. Two large sets of built-in cupboards and a laundry round out the interior. Outside, the owners have thoughtfully left a blank slate for new owners. There is a handy decked area, large expanse of lawn and garden shed. An undercover paved entertainment area is ideal for summer barbecues and is bordered by more plant boxes. Two cars easily fit under the carport.

TRIPPING

Walking the gauntlet Crossing the road in Saigon provides an adrenaline rush that puts some adventure sports to shame, writes David Bonnici

D

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

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

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

MOTORING ●

Corolla gets an infusion of style Ewan Kennedy road tests Toyota’s updated evergreen orollas have long had a reputation for being sensible, logical buys that are on the boring side — until now. Toyota’s new chief, Akio Toyoda, didn’t like the ‘boring but sensible’ tag being given to his company’s products, so he suggested to designers and engineers that more character might be nice. From a styling point of view the 11th generation Corolla is right up to date, with a clean front where the lights and grille blend neatly and in the side view which has a real Euro look. Australians are showing a strong preference for small passenger vehicles rather than the large family sixes they used to love with a passion. The Mazda3 has been at the top of the sales tree for the past two years but is getting on in years and Toyota wouldn’t mind a tilt at the crown. Nissan Australia is also in the race with its all-new Pulsar. Toyota and Nissan have both priced their entry level models at $19,990. When the big three car makers start to get really serious about maximising sales, buyers are the real winners. These cars are all very well

C

priced, but you may still be able to squeeze another few dollars out of the transaction. New Toyota Corolla is powered by a 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine that’s based on the one used in the outgoing model. It has significant changes to improve power and torque characteristics and reduce fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. The car wasn’t as economical as we anticipated, typically using nine to 11 litres per hundred kilometres in heavy-duty driving around town. Handling of the new Corolla is excellent, all the more so when you remember it’s a family hatchback with no pretensions to sportiness. The electrically assisted power steering is nicely weighted and gives good feedback. Comfort on poor roads isn’t as good as on previous Corollas due to the sporting revisions to the car’s character. Toyota’s Corolla has been a favourite in Australia for almost five decades. We see no reason why our love affair with this car shouldn’t be every bit as strong as in the previous 10 generations.

‘Boring’ no more: Corolla has more style and people seem to like it like that.

Eagles wilt, now a new heat is on BY LANCE JENKINSON YARRAVILLE is staring down a tough run chase of 275 for victory after losing control in the middle part of a Saturday scorcher against Elsternwick in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association at Elsternwick Park on Saturday. On two occasions, the Eagles bowlers got on top, but the Wicks hit back both times to take a psychological edge at stumps on day one. The Eagles made a great start, removing both openers cheaply, to have the hosts 2-12. They let the Wicks off the leash with Anton Scholtz (61) and Rohan O’Neill (36) combining for an 83-run third wicket partnership. Again the Eagles hit back, taking 5-66 to have the Wicks in a spot of bother on 7-161. But the Eagles could not find a cure for Wicks middle-order mainstay Harrison Nurse, who took command en route to 106. He found an ally in tail ender Callum O’Neill (43) and the pair took full toll of the Eagles’ bowlers, adding 108 in an eighthwicket partnership. It was tough going for the bowlers under the blazing sun as temperatures reached the mid-30s. ‘‘We stood out there in the heat for about 76 overs,’’ Eagles player-coach Tim McRae told the Weekly. ‘‘It was such a good batting wicket; there’s not much in it for the mediumpacers.’’ McRae was the most successful of the Eagles bowlers, taking 6-45 off 17.5 overs with his leg spin.

INBRIEF Cricket West Newport will fight it out with second-placed Wyndhamvale for a home final in the Williamstown and District Cricket Association A1 turf at Wyndhamvale Reserve on Saturday. Wests, sitting third, kept their top-two hopes alive with a 108-run mauling of Grand United on the road at Parsons Reserve on Saturday. Trent Jones blasted 83 not out to put the smiles back on the Wests’ connections, who are still feeling low after their clubrooms at Loft Reserve were burnt down this month.

Six pack: Yarraville player-coach Tim McRae had the batsmen in a spin. meant plenty of overs from the spinner. ‘‘You just had to bowl really accurately and mix it up,’’ McRae said. ‘‘I tend to bowl a lot of wrong ’uns, as well as leggies, and try to keep it as accurate as possible. They were coming out well.’’While the run chase won’t be easy, conditions at the Glenhuntly Road venue are conducive to high scores. ‘‘It’s a really dry, fast ground, so if the wicket is the same next week, we’ll look forward to batting on it,’’ McRae said. Meanwhile, Altona will have to make 224 to claim victory on its visit to Ormond. Lee Elmore (3-21) and Owen Alsop (3-71) were the best of the A’s bowlers.

Jets ‘better placed than any time in 13 years’ BY LANCE JENKINSON WESTERN Jets region manager Shane Sexton has been involved with the TAC Cup for too long to be lured into crystal ball predictions for his teams. The wider view is the Jets will have a successful season under new coach Torin Baker with the deepest playing list in the club’s 21-year history. Sexton said it would be impossible to give a ballpark estimation of where the Jets could finish until after seeing the talent stocks of other clubs. ‘‘We think whatever happens this year, we’re going to have a good year,’’ he said. ‘‘Whether that equates to playing in finals or winning half our games or most of our games, we don’t know yet because it’s a very good competition and every time you play, you play against a direct opponent who’s very good and against a team that’s very good.’’ No doubt the Jets are better placed than any other

time in Sexton’s 13-year tenure with the western suburbs’ elite under-18 club. Not since the club had access to parts of the northwest region before the inclusion of the Calder Cannons have the Jets enjoyed a deeper talent pool to choose from. The club will finalise its roster in the coming weeks and has indicated it will provide a path for more players than ever. ‘‘We think this time around, we’ll probably pick a bigger squad, because of the depth of talent,’’ Sexton said. ‘‘In years gone by we might have picked mid- to high-40s in terms of player numbers. This year we might pick well in excess of 50 kids and it could be 54 or 55. ‘‘I’m more than happy to say the depth of talent now is far greater than what it was.’’ The Jets are benefiting from a boom in the growth of the western suburbs. Parts of the west that Sexton drove freely around a decade ago are now built up.

Other parcels of land that remain paddocks are on the verge of development. It’s a bonanza for the Jets, who have done it tough since the arrival of the Cannons. ‘‘Without a doubt, the region is growing,’’ Sexton said. ‘‘You’ve only got to go out in the west these days through the growth corridor and you can see the growth. ‘‘When I first got here, you got past Deer Park and basically there wasn’t anything, and it wasn’t that long ago. ‘‘Now you go out there and you’ve got Caroline Springs, Taylors Hill, Burnside, etcetera. ‘‘You go out to Melton and you’ve got Eynesbury and a huge development there, same thing at Werribee, out at Wyndhamvale, Manor Lakes and Tarneit, and Point Cook was really just in its infancy when I came out here as well and, gee, it’s a long way down the track now. ‘‘That’s all happened in the past 10 years.’’

The Western Bulldogs made a rough start to the NAB Cup preseason competition. The Dogs suffered losses to Essendon (26 points) and Collingwood (18) at Etihad Stadium on Friday night. All teams in the opening round play two back-to-back games with shortened halves. The Bulldogs have a week off from competitive action before meeting Hawthorn on Fridayweek in a stand-alone, full-four-quarter game back at the Docklands.

Help at hand for Roosters THE Victorian Rugby League will help the devastated Altona Roosters get back on the field this season after fire ripped through their clubrooms at Loft Reserve this month. VRL general manager Brent Silva said the league would help the defending first grade champions with resources and fundraising. ‘‘We’d be able to try and access training equipment to keep them going . . . uniforms and those sort of things,’’ he said. ‘‘We’d also be able to help them with any sort of application they make to local or state government regarding emergency funding — help them through the process.’’ The Roosters could also gain invaluable assistance from the Melbourne Storm. Silva held preliminary discussions with Storm chief executive officer Ron Gauci about a potential fundraiser at one of the Storm’s coming home games. ‘‘I’ve already spoken to the CEO of Melbourne Storm today about their support and he was happy to investigate fundraising opportunities to assist the club,’’ Silva said. ‘‘We haven’t worked out what they will be yet, but the intent is to help the club.’’ — Lance Jenkinson

Woodsmen poke heads above water BY LANCE JENKINSON SPOTSWOOD has earned a lifeline in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association senior division. The Woodsmen resurrected their survival prospects with a stunning two-wicket win over Bentleigh at Bentleigh Reserve on Saturday. Woodsmen coach Haydn Fletcher told the Weekly his side would enter the final round within touching distance of the safety spots. ‘‘The guys have got a little bit of a sniff now,’’ he said. ‘‘We’re only about 30 runs behind avoiding relegation.’’ Simply put, if the Woodsmen beat top-four side Greenvale at McLean Reserve in the last round and third-last South Caulfield loses to top side McKinnon, they will survive. Should both the Woodsmen and South Caulfield incur an

identical result — a win or a loss — it will come down to percentage. If the Woodsmen lose and South Caulfield wins, they are heading back to the north division next summer. What it all means is every single ball will count for the two clubs in the season’s last match. The Woodsmen got their heads above water with a stirring win over Bentleigh. Set an imposing 258 for victory, they reached the target eight down in the extra overs gained from Bentleigh opting to declare on day one. Heroic performances from Matt Leddin (97 not out) and David Buysen (38) will be remembered for some time at The Avenue. Meanwhile, Yarraville Club did the neighbouring Woodsmen a favour, downing South Caulfield by 61 runs at the Walker Oval. The Clubbers made 281 and defended it to perfection, rolling the visitors for 220.

Wrestlers jolted, still grappling BY LANCE JENKINSON WHILE wrestling’s possible exclusion from the 2020 Olympic Games was felt around the world, it caused barely a ripple in Australia. Where it did reverberate was the western suburbs, with the sport of two of our Olympians, Farzad Tarash and Mark Anthony, in danger of being dismissed from the Games in seven years. Tarash, 26, is one of the rising stars of wrestling in this country. Born in Iran, he moved to Australia with his parents at the age of 12 and attended St Margaret’s Maribyrnong and Maribyrnong College. Unlike other sports, wrestling is not a full-time occupation, but it gave him the chance to succeed at university, where he graduated with a bachelor of applied sciences degree. But, like other sports, Tarash trains as if he is a full-time professional without the perks, all in the hope of standing on the podium with a gold medal dangling around his neck at the 2016

Olympics. Tarash was initially drawn to the sport because his father, Parviz, was a national champion in his native country. But there was more to the sport for Tarash than family links. ‘‘Everything about wrestling was interesting for me as a kid,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s physical, it involves technique and speed. It’s what a pure sport should have.’’ Tarash has grown up in the right era. He got the chance to represent Australia in London last year. The national and Oceania champion is confident he can stay on top of his game to reach Rio de Janeiro in three years’ time. Tarash’s disappointment with the notion that wrestling could be dropped from all future Olympics is more to do with the next generation. ‘‘Definitely 2016 is my target,’’ he said, at which time he will be 30. ‘‘For 2020, I’m thinking more about the younger kids coming up now. ‘‘It’s disappointing to hear that some of their dreams could be shattered.’’

A’s control their path to the finals ALTONA is locked in a tense four-way battle for two vacancies in the Bowls Victoria premier division finals. The third-placed A’s are in the box seat with 173 points after beating arch-rivals Werribee 79-64 at Civic Parade last weekend. But, there’s no margin for error, with Clayton (172), Brighton (165) and Bundoora (161) ready to take advantage of any slip-ups in Saturday’s final round. At least the A’s control their own destiny. They

will seal a finals berth with a win over Essendon. Should they lose, the A’s will have to rely on results from other greens to go their way, something they will be desperate to avoid. The A’s were made to work hard for victory over their fierce western rival, Werribee. They picked up three of four rinks, but two were tight. David Zitter (30-14) beat up on his old club, which was relegated as a result of the loss. Brenton Coad (17-16) and Brad Peck (20-17) had narrow wins. — Lance Jenkinson

Veteran cyclist takes care of No.1 FOOTSCRAY Cycling Club veteran Adam Murchie will get to wear the No.1 jersey for the next year after taking out the action-packed Eric Turner Memorial criterium championships. A who’s who of cycling heavyweights turned up to race, with Dom Dudkiewicz, Graham Carlson, Ben Johnson, Murchie, Nathan Page and Ben O’Leary headlining the starting list. Murchie, 35, who joined the club as an 18-year old, almost missed the break when Page

attacked early in the race. ‘‘The first 10 minutes were full-on,’’ he said. ‘‘I had just done a turn on the front when Nathan attacked. I knew I had to go.’’ Murchie used his guile and experience to choose his tactics at the end. ‘‘I got the jump on the others and made sure I was first wheel into the last corner. I’ve been working on my sprint and it paid off.’’ Murchie crossed ahead, just clear of Page.

Maiden ton for Doggies import BY ROY WARD

Jessica’s heroics hailed BY LANCE JENKINSON JESSICA Cameron is quickly becoming the premier big-game player in international women’s cricket. The Williamstown-born 23-year-old was named player of the match in Australia’s win over the West Indies in the Women’s World Cup 2013 final in India last Sunday night (Melbourne time). It’s the second time in six months she’s played a huge role in getting the Southern Stars across the line in a major tournament. In September, Cameron made 45 off 34 to steer the Stars to the Women’s World Twenty20 title, with victory over England in the final in Sri Lanka. While Cameron racks up the runs, she does it in the most entertaining fashion, using her 360-degree shot-making to advantage. ‘‘We have plenty of batters in our side and I know if I went out at any time, someone else would take over,’’ Cameron said on the podium in the post-game celebrations. ‘‘We’ve got a really strong batting line-up and it showed today.’’ Australia posted an imposing 7-259 off 50 overs. The Stars top order fired with Cameron combining in big partnerships with Meg Lanning (31) and Rachael Haynes (52). Cameron continued while wickets fell around her before skying a loose ball into the hands of Kyshona Knight at deep midwicket. A late flurry of runs from captain Jodie Fields (38 not out) and Ellyse Perry (25 not out) got the Stars up to an imposing total. ‘‘The pitch played really well today, which is always good for a batter,’’ Cameron said. ‘‘It was a bit tough for the bowlers, but, you know, that’s just cricket sometimes.’’ The Stars bowled the Windies out for 145. Perry, who struggled with an ankle injury, picked up a crucial 3-19 off 10 overs. The retiring Lisa Sthaleker took 2-20 off 10 in her last international game. Cameron finished with 225 runs for the cup — an average of 37.5 and strike rate of 81.52.

ENGLISH import Arun Harinath was thrown into the furnace that was Central Reserve last Saturday and proved up to the challenge, posting his maiden century for Footscray-Edgewater as the Bulldogs made 8-320 against Richmond in Premier Cricket. The 25-year-old Surrey batsman made 138 with 14 boundaries in just his fourth Premier Cricket innings with his new club. While the heat made him uncomfortable, Harinath overcame all obstacles to play the anchor role in the Bulldogs innings. He said raising the bat to make the century took a little extra effort as the heat was getting to him. “We’d run a lot of threes; it probably shows I need to do a little more work on my fitness,’’ he said. “It was my first hundred; it was good to get among the runs.” Harinath paid tribute to his toporder teammates Dean Russ (33), Wes Robinson (13) and Benjamin Green (27), who had the Bulldogs on 3-98 when Harinath walked to the crease at number four. “We had a good platform set up earlier in the innings by Russ, Wes and Greeny,” Harinath said. “It was just a case of trying to continue their good work and it turned out to be my turn to make a hundred today, which was nice. “It was hot, but after a while when the ball was getting softer it was easier to bat on. “I think all batters try to stick around as long as possible because if you do that it can get easier for you.

Saturday. “It’s a young squad and they’ve made me feel welcome,” he said. “It makes it easier to play well when you feel comfortable and at home; credit to the guys here at Footscray. We needed to get a big score behind us and now hopefully we can bowl them out.” Tigers Ben Torney (2-44) and Steve Garrett (2-48) were the best bowlers for the home side. Play resumes at Central Reserve, Glen Waverley, at noon on Saturday.

Saints whacked in Rams’ run orgy BY LANCE JENKINSON NEWPORT Rams brought the fireworks in a 25-3 annihilation of St Kilda in Baseball Victoria’s summer league division 2 on Saturday. The Rams went whack in the first innings with two towering home runs, effectively killing off the game as a contest. Troy Malthouse unleashed a grand slam home run before Jordan Young followed up with a three-run homer, leaving the Saints shellshocked. ‘‘We just came out and our bats just fired from the first innings,’’ Rams assistant coach Gavin Young told the Weekly. ‘‘We put up eight runs in the first. It was just a

day where we couldn’t do anything wrong with the bat.’’ The hits – 20 in all – kept coming for the Rams. The main source was pitcher Griffin Weir, who had five. Weir was also in command on the mound in another stellar performance. ‘‘Griffin Weir threw a really good game again,’’ Young said. ‘‘He had a day out.’’ The Rams were eager to bounce back after a narrow loss to Fitzroy a week earlier. That defeat snapped a seven-game winning streak and put their position at the top of the ladder under threat to local rivals Williamstown Wolves. The Wolves, however, lost the ground they made up seven days earlier with a disappointing

10-7 defeat to Mulgrave at home on Sunday. The Rams keep their 1.5 game lead at the top of the ladder and can stretch it to two when they face Port Melbourne at the Melbourne Ballpark today at 6.30pm. ‘‘We want to try and get two games clear going into the last game against Williamstown with us and them vying for top spot,’’ Young said. ‘‘Every game is crucial at the moment.’’ Summer League Firsts: Newport 25 St Kilda 3, Williamstown 7 Mulgrave 10. Seconds: Williamstown 2 Mulgrave 12, St Kilda 9 Newport 1. Thirds: Newport 10 St Kilda 9, Mulgrave 7 Williamstown 18. Fourths: Newport 12 Williamstown 3
