Airport lifts economy to new level

inbrief Council enviro champs Sustainablility champions are kicking goals for Hume. The TED talk Better Block, about transforming streets into places for people, will be screened at the Hume Enviro Champs August meet up. Residents are invited to bring local sustainability project ideas and a plate to share. August 14, at Broadmeadows Global Learning Centre from 6.15pm.

By John Hazeldene AN EXTRA 1.6 million people flew in and out of Melbourne Airport over the past 12 months, a 6 per cent increase on the previous year and a much-needed boost to Victoria’s economy. The passenger numbers reached 29.85 million compared with 29.82 million the previous year. Airport spokeswoman Anna Gillett said that for every international flight that lands (Melbourne Airport averages about 45 a day), about $250,000 is injected into the state’s economy. She said the airport was directly responsible for providing 14,300 jobs, two-thirds of which were held by people from neighbouring communities. The airport employee number is expected to rise to 23,000 in the next 20 years. Ms Gillett said 28 per cent of people working at the airport lived in Hume, while one in six jobs in Hume related to airport operations. The airport indirectly sustains the employment of a further 43,000 people, Ms Gillett said. The highest increase in the number of overseas visitors was from Argentina, up by more than 44 per cent this financial year compared with the last. This was followed by Hong Kong, up 19.7 per cent, Taiwan 19.5 per cent, and Italy 16.1 per cent. The Australian Bureau of Statistics says tourism grew faster than all other sectors of the economy in 2011-12, contributing $112 million a day around the nation. Victoria’s Tourism and Major Events Minister, Louise Asher, last week unveiled a new tourism strategy, highlighting the importance of increasing direct air services from Melbourne airport to the growing

international tourism markets of China, India and South East Asia. “[The] 2020 tourism strategy has been developed to ensure Victoria realises its full potential as a tourism destination of choice for travellers from fast-growing Asian economies and across Australia,” Ms Asher said. Last year’s state budget earmarked $2.6 million for attracting new air services over the next four years. The minister said Tourism

Victoria’s strategy was to grow visitor numbers so that tourism contributed $34 billion to the state’s gross domestic product by 202021. That would generate an extra 109,000 jobs over the intervening period. Sichuan Airlines began direct service flights from Melbourne to Chengdu in western China in February, while Jetstar began its new direct Honolulu service late last year.

Pupils make the day that brings Australians back to earth National Tree Day, launched in Planet Ark in 1996, is Australia’s largest tree-planting and nature care event. Each year, more than 200,000 people take part in planting bees at more than 3000 sites organised by councils, schools, businesses and communities across the country. Since its launch, more than three million participants have planted 18.6 million native trees, shrubs and grasses. Planet Ark’s National Tree Day manager Debbie Agnew said recent research had highlighted problems such as shrinking backyards, too much “screen time” and long working hours were eating away at Australia’s renowned outdoor way of life, as well as our health. “National Tree Day is a call to action for all Australians to get back outside,” Ms Agnew said. 

– Helen Grimaux SHAWN SMITS

PLANTING a forest proved the perfect way to commemorate National Tree Day at Greenvale last week. More than 2500 indigenous grass and tree seedlings went in the ground at Bradford Avenue Reserve, thanks to the mighty efforts of 666 primary school pupils, who are all members of Hume council’s sustainability taskforce. Southbank construction company Australand sponsored the planting bee, bringing in Greenvale Primary School pupils for the hands-on work, although plenty of adults also got their hands dirty. Sponsors, including Plantmark, Iramoo Indigenous Nursery and the Brite Services nursery, donated seedlings and mulch. The council also hosted an event on Sunday at The Tarnuk, Westmeadows, with the Friends of Upper Moonee Ponds Creek group planting a mix of indigenous trees, shrubs and grasses as part of an ongoing biodiversity project.

Council changes direction on land care HUME council will merge its sustainable land management and natural heritage taskforces after reviews of both programs next year. At its meeting last week, the council foreshadowed a shift in its environmental management thinking and endorsed its new 2013-15 sustainability taskforce. The taskforce includes nine residents, two rural land management representatives, three from local environment groups, a business and industry member and representatives

from two primary schools and one secondary school. Councillor representative Drew Jessop highlighted the progress so far on strategic directions the council has taken in implementing its 2009 ‘pathways to sustainability and environmental framework’. Cr Jessop paid tribute to the “hardworking people on the land” and acknowledged that most of Hume’s natural heritage assets were on private land. “There are 228 rural landowners now receiving a rate rebate for all the right reasons,” he said. Cr Jessop spoke of education

‘There’s a lack of knowledge about the flora and fauna of this area.’ programs set up to guide new landowners and of responsibility for roadside weed and rural pest management that was increasingly being shifted to councils by the state government. “Finding alternative rabbit control measures is always a problem in places like Hume,” Cr Jessop said.

Father’s Day Sunday 1 September 2013 st

He told the council meeting that 60 per cent of the projects identified in Hume’s 2011-15 strategy had been accomplished and the rest were “on track”. “People don’t understand the outstanding features of Hume, the remnant vegetation in 100 and more sites,” he said. “There’s a lack of knowledge about the flora and fauna of this area; it is not well understood.” Cr Jessop highlighted the Sunbury flora program, community group efforts along the waterways of the Moonee Ponds and Merri creeks

and the council’s donation scheme supplying rural landowners with native plants and grasses. Responding to Cr Jessop’s report, Cr Helen Patsikatheodorou noted the importance of a “strategic action tracker”, a reporting tool used to keep track of the council’s land management and natural heritage projects. “Until I read this I was not aware of all the things we do,” Cr Patsikatheodorou said. “This is a very important tool. It’s a great read about what council is involved with in land management.”

Band-Aids ‘won’t fix’ black spot By Helen Grimaux

responsible,’’ Cr Nunn said. “If council could, it would’ve been done by now.” She said more than 23,000 cars passed through the intersection each day, describing queues of cars waiting to exit Hanson Road and access Craigieburn Road, and with long waiting times before the line shortened. The council resolved to continue to lobby the state government and VicRoads to make the intersection safe, and it will develop an advocacy and information campaign to raise awareness of the safety issues and responsibilities associated with the intersection. A report presented to the council last week said the intersection was unlikely to qualify for government black spot funding as accident statistics did not warrant it. ‘‘Accidents may not be reported but they’re happening,” Cr Nunn said. In the five years to December last year, VicRoads recorded three casualty crashes at the intersection. A further report to the council about the performance of the intersection, including a safety report and assessments on delays caused by traffic build-ups, will be presented to a strategy and policy meeting of the council in November.

HUME councillor and deputy mayor Casey Nunn always anticipated the lack of parking at Craigieburn station would be the main issue for her constituents. “But Hanson Road won hands down,” she told the gallery at the council meeting last week. “I turn 30 next month and I remember being on L-plates and my dad saying, ‘Don’t go there; avoid that intersection at all costs’,” Cr Nunn said, describing inordinate efforts taken to avoid the troubleplagued intersection. Since development of a new town centre and residential estates to the north of the old town centre, Hanson Road has become a major link from the old town into the new. “There have been slight improvements,” Cr Nunn conceded, referring to right-turn lane alterations developed at the intersection by VicRoads in consultation with the council and community. “But these have been Band-Aid solutions for a gaping gunshot wound,” the Aitken ward councillor said. All stakeholders acknowledged the contentious intersection needed proper signalling, which may happen once Craigieburn Road is duplicated from the Hume Highway past the new town centre, she said. VicRoads, which is responsible for the management of Craigieburn Road, has altered line-marking at its intersection with Hanson Road in an effort to reduce the potential for accidents. “This is not a council road; it’s VicRoads that is ultimately

Shining light on savings: Amadis Lacheta and John Holmes discuss the benefits of energy-saving downlights.

HOW many cents does it take to change a light bulb? A whole lot of commonsense when it comes to paying the bills. Hume council’s Business Efficiency Network (BEN) is talking both cents and sense to business owners, large and small, and the program is already paying dividends to members. BEN co-ordinator Amadis Lacheta said lighting alone could account for more than 30 per cent of electricity bills. Replacing inefficient halogen and incandescent light globes with energy-efficient and relatively costeffective LED lights could reduce both bills and carbon emissions, as BEN members are learning. John Holmes, owner of the Black Horse hotel-motel at Bulla, had a lot of light bulbs to change – 115 halogen globes put a very expensive price-tag on the upmarket look of downlighting. With the support of the council’s sustainable business program, the 115 halogens bulbs were changed

Apart from lighting, BEN focuses on projects that make practical differences immediately.

Windbreak is the talk of the town By Helen Grimaux

tesselated screens at Kingswood Drive’s intersection with Hamilton Street at the Hume Highway. The arty windbreak is part of a much bigger and more expensive roadside planting and shared pathway project to shield the old town from the highway, Cr Nunn told the Weekly, pulling out the plans to prove her point. But old Craigieburn is going to have to wait until the new town centre opens the arterial heart of Craigieburn Road to all its chambers before it’s out of gridlock long enough to appreciate roadside art. At present, about 23,000 cars a day do the Craigieburn Road crawl-by of construction hoardings, negotiating trucks of all sorts. The only relief in sight is the opening of Craigieburn Central, due by Christmas. Colour and unity: Aunty Gloria Norrey, Karen Jones, Gail Radford, Troy Blow and Aunty Diane Kerr at the mosaic unveiling.

TO the sounds of a didgeridoo, Hume Indigenous Planned Activity Group members celebrated the unveiling of an Aboriginal-themed mosaic at the front of Sunbury Community Health Centre. The mosaic, created by the group, is of serpents and representative of the Dreamtime. The centre’s Aboriginal engagement officer, Gail Radford, said the mosaic was a big thing for the indigenous community. Ms Radford said her role at the health centre was about building relationships between the Sunbury and indigenous community. “I have formed a Sunbury Aboriginal community reference group, which is for anyone interested in being involved and working together,” she said. “We’re looking at holding events like a Koorie night market and organising a group for older women and, hopefully in the long term, a community hub.”

I’m talking about economic refugees.” Prompted by the recent plan by Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to turn around the refugee boats, this was just one of a number of opinions expressed around the supper tables after last Monday’s Hume council meeting. But the thread died out as talk turned to a Craigieburn ‘art statement’, aka ‘‘a windbreak’’, according to Aitken ward councillor and deputy mayor Casey Nunn. There was no talk of the ‘Sunbury out of Hume’ proposal, the financial case for which is due out this week. Instead, centre stage was given to Craigieburn reactions to the strong colours of a new $50,000 councilfunded roadside art statement, a series of alternating yellow and orange

insidestory Permanent underclass status beckons for young people living in outer Melbourne as social infrastructure buckles under immense pressure. Helen Grimaux reports.

Y

where hope is on the outer

Concerned: Youth Projects chairperson Melanie Raymond.

oung people of Melbourne’s rapidly growing northern and western fringes do not live in one of the world’s most “liveable” cities. These areas are the underbelly of the metropolis for tens of thousands of “youth” caught up in a housing boom driven by the resettlement of the largest refugee and multicultural community after Greater Dandenong. New residents are moving in on older generations whose blue-collar, working-class profiles are tied to manufacturing and the airport. The older ’burbs of the north and west are now flanked with motorways connecting the city to its gateways, creating corridors that are progressively being in-filled by subdivisions along the Hume, Calder and Western highways. New estates are signed off every few months, but there’s nowhere near enough money for the social building effort needed to cope with Melbourne’s relentless urban sprawl. While governments pay families to keep young people at school, there’s not much money if young people fail the system or the system fails them. The safety net is a patchwork of church-based and not-for-profit agencies, parent-run associations and volunteer networks. All youth and family organisations and agencies contacted by the Weekly say Peter they are stretched for every dollar. The Langdon May state budget came and went, with the north and west most noted by their absence in announcements on youth funding. TAFE cuts and recent losses in the manufacturing sector have impacted badly on community pysche, and there seems to be no one leading, no one in charge of planning how to get people out of the economic doldrums or – more importantly – how to get young people into the workforce and continuing to learn.

THE YOUTH WORKER

Youth Projects board chairman Melanie Raymond grew up in Coburg and has worked with young people in Melbourne’s north for more than 25 years. Raymond points to the latest government figures showing the queues at Broadmeadows Centrelink of unemployed 15 to 24-year-olds are the longest in the state. Last month, more than 3000 people registered for youth allowance and unemployment benefit Newstart. “Clients are in worse shape than ever before,” Raymond says. “Housing circumstances are precarious – more than half are a risk of homelessness, are couch surfing and living in unstable accommodation. “They are hungry and struggling to live on Newstart.” In Broadmeadows, the youth jobless rate has jumped to 16 per cent, about three times higher than the 5.1 per cent Melbourne average. Raymond is also concerned by new data coming out of the north and Sunbury areas about changing drug use among young people, with a shift away from cannabis-smoking to steroid and methamphetamine use. Any of these mixed with alcohol fuels an angry cocktail. She wants a northern investment fund to build

physical and social infrastructure and break the cycle of welfare dependence, low skills and lack of social mobility. “Melbourne’s outer north will become a permanent underclass of people locked out of economic and social life without further investment in the region,” Raymond says. “Collaborative investment from all levels of government and the private sector are needed to build the skills and future capacity of these northern growth areas. “In a tough environment, Youth Projects works with young people to make the life-changing turnaround from welfare dependence and poverty into work and training,” Raymond says. “Many come from backgrounds where no one in their family or extended networks has ever had or kept a job, or finished school.” Raymond says Youth Projects is always on the lookout for new employers willing to give young people a go, either as short-term workers or as longer-term options. “Those who do have addressed job vacancies and found reliable local workers,” Raymond says.

THE PSYCHOLOGIST

Young people are psychologist Peter Langdon’s specialty. He has been on call for some of the western suburbs’ more infamous moments, when streets erupted with neighbourhood violence and school yards of young people were impacted. Too many kids, he finds, are living ‘virtual’ lives. Face to face skills are diminishing – why talk when you can text? But texting cuts down brain activity – facial expressions, voice nuances and body language are lost. Texting is so quick; talking takes mental effort. Langdon wants town planners to think about young people as they “renew” our town centres and build new ones. Town planners, he says, need to leave spaces for young people, and councils need to get out and start talking to young people in less advantaged areas and step into their shoes for a couple of days. “We could also see graffiti as an artform, as expression, not as vandalism,” he says. “Graffiti dates back beyond the Roman times; it’s on all the temples.” What we need to arm young people with, Langdon says, is awareness about experimentation with alcohol and drugs, the personal and physical threat factors, and addictive elements that can trap them in unhappy and often violent relationships. While community life seemingly lacks connective fibre, Langdon urges young people to reach out when they need help, to walk in the door of Youth Projects, Headspace, Dianella, Lentara, the City Mission or Mission of the Streets and Lanes, to find people of good faith who can open doors and show them other pathways to get through the “youth” years in good shape.

HUME, Brimbank and Dandenong lead Melbourne in the ‘disadvantage stakes’, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ socio-economic indexes for areas. The disadvantage formula is derived from factors such as low income, low education levels, high unemployment, and jobs in relatively unskilled occupations. Red Group, led by Joe Duncan, tries to make a difference by being an employer partner in Youth Projects (see Inside Story, page 9), which offers jobs to the young. Mr Duncan knows that if you start from a low base, getting a break is the only way out of the poverty trap. “I come from a rough background,� the Coolaroo-based manufacturer said. “My mum was a single parent; we were poor and we lived in a very bad area. I struggled to make it. I got some breaks and that’s why I try to help others.� The Red Group has just secured

the Australia-wide Coles contract to take all its soft plastic recycling as a partner in the supermarket giant’s schools program. Mr Duncan and partner Liz Kasell promote their workplace as an educational enterprise, and have structured their business as a place where young people can get experience. Red Group collects the soft plastics people can’t recycle through council bins – all the bits of plastic packaging that don’t have the recycling triangle or a PET food-grade plastic number. Even newspaper cling wrap goes into the Red bins at schools and supermarkets. “Anyone can export plastic; we process it and turn it into new things,� Mr Duncan said. “We make benches, tables and chairs, tree netting, all sorts of things ... otherwise it all goes to China and then they’ll sell it back to us.� Many young people needing a break are sent to the Red Group for real-life experience, especially when the conveyor belts are in

To market: Visit the Highlands Farmers’ and Community Market on the third Saturday of each month from 9am–2pm. At 1 North Shore Drive, Craigieburn. Details: highlandsfarmersmarket.com.

“Some are pretty good,� Mr Duncan said. “It gives them a platform to apply to bigger companies with a reference that shows they have had experience.’’

are popular with women under 30. They want economical and stylish vehicles with features like Bluetooth and voice control,’’ he says. ‘‘Males under 30 prefer utes, even if they’re not a tradie. ‘‘SUVs and large sedans are popular for the 30 to 50 age group, often dictated by family needs. ‘‘Women 50 and over go back to small cars as the kids have grown up and they want something easy to drive. ‘‘Men go for more aspirational cars that they’ve always wanted; style, power and prestige are what they look for.’’ Asked for her advice on buying a new car, Crowe suggests shopping around. ‘‘Don’t be scared to get the dealers into a price war. Girls should also take a guy with them to avoid the risk of being taken advantage of, and to speed up the process.’’ Sistanis recommends taking a test drive, making a list of important features and, if trading in an old car, visiting a website to get an understanding of what it may be worth.

uying a new car is right up there for most people as one of the most expensive endeavours we ever undertake – and one you want to get right. Depending on their age and gender, drivers tend to follow certain patterns when changing vehicles. New car owners Bonnie Crowe, 25, and over-50 Graham Howes bought their vehicles last year. ‘‘I went for the Mazda 2, mainly on price when compared to other small cars in that size range,’’ Crowe says. ‘‘I knew I wanted a hatchback with four doors, so I looked at a range of cars that fit that description.’’ Howes chose a VE Commodore. ‘‘It was great value, well sized and I liked the style. It was Australian-made and I like the idea of keeping more money in our economy rather than see it go overseas.’’ Sunbury Ford principal dealer Michael Sistanis says buyers typically choose their cars for a range of reasons. ‘‘Small to medium-sized cars and small SUVs

Hume City Broncos finished on a winning note in the Big V Basketball men’s state championship on Saturday night with a six-point margin over Bulleen Boomers. And the Broncos’ finals-bound women’s team geared up for playoffs with a six-point win against Waverley Falcons on Sunday. The men winning 95-89 against Bulleen ended a tough campaign for Hume which yielded just five wins, 13 losses and an eighth-of-10 finish on the ladder. Jermaine Maybank scored 24 points for Hume, while Jamal Brown scored 14 points to go with 17 rebounds. Hume won two of its first three games before a seven-game losing streak sunk its top four hopes. Back-to-back wins to end the campaign were some consolation for another seven-game series of losses in the season’s back half. Hume secured second place in the women’s state championship on Sunday with a 70-64 win away at Waverley Falcons. The win was largely inconsequential to Hume’s finals opponent but does ensure

Saints do enough to stay on top By Teo Pellizzeri Northern Saints kicked their second-lowest score of the year on Saturday but still beat Tullamarine by 56 points in division 1 of the Essendon District Football League. A week after claiming top spot from Tullamarine, the Saints consolidated their new tag as premiership and promotion favourites with the 16.18 (114) to 8.10 (58) win at Charles Mutton Reserve. Northern Saints (13-2) lead by a game and a half from Glenroy (11-

1-3), with Tullamarine down to third (11-1-3) with three rounds to go. The normally free-scoring Saints showed their defensive side on Saturday, holding Tulla scoreless in the second quarter and to just 2.3 for the day kicking with the wind. Tullamarine kicked 2.7 to the scoring end in the first quarter but couldn’t resist in the second term as the Saints kicked five unanswered goals to take the lead. “It was a pretty strong, 3-4-goal breeze,” Saints coach Nat Caruso said.

‘It was fierce early and we both had a crack, but after half time we got the ascendancy.’ - coach Nat Caruso “I said at quarter time not to over-kick, just to keep possession. It was fierce early and we both had a crack, but after half time we got the ascendancy and held the lead. “We have no problems with our

inbrief EDFL PREMIER Greenvale thrashed Essendon Doutta Stars by 91 points on Saturday, but the huge margin wasn’t enough to return the Jets to the top of the ladder. The 23.15 (153) to 8.14 (62) win keeps 13-1 Greenvale second behind Aberfeldie by one percentage point. The Jets are four games clear of third with four rounds to go and are all but certain to meet Aberfeldie in the qualifying final. Simon Potter was best afield with five goals on Saturday, while Julian Hemala kicked four. In other games, Avondale Heights beat Oak Park by 115 points and Airport West beat Maribyrnong Park by 46. It means the Heights and Eagles (both 9-5) hold third and fourth from fellow finals contenders Maribyrnong Park and Strathmore (both 8-6). Greenvale plays Aberfeldie at Greenvale Reserve this weekend from 2.15pm.

attack, and the defensive mindset is starting to come along. “It’s about players getting back in transition to help out their teammates.” Defender Kassam Ahmad was the Saints’ best on Saturday, while Daheg Abdul-Wahed kicked four goals and Michael Simioni and Fidaa Ahmed booted three each. Colin Laurie, Drew Hynninen and Craig Steele were Tullamarine’s best players, while Scott Vernan and Adam Scott booted two goals each.

Fractions now match actions for Craigieburn Percentage may be enough to save Craigieburn from relegation after fellow battlers Westmeadows lost to Hadfield in Essendon District Football League division 1 on Saturday. With only games against finalsbound teams to come for the Tigers, Saturday’s 14.12 (96) to 6.4 (40) defeat leaves Westmeadows needing a major upset or some very favourable results in other games to avoid the drop to division 2. Craigieburn pushed Taylors Lakes for three quarters but ultimately fell 19.11 (125) to 12.12 (84) at DS Aitken Reserve. Both teams share two-and-13 records, but Craigieburn’s percentage of 60.75 still leads Westmeadows’ 51.64. Westmeadows has finals-bound Taylors Lakes, Glenroy and Northern Saints to come in the last three weeks, while Craigieburn plays Tullamarine this weekend but then ends with fellow non-finalists West

VPL Hume City displayed its credentials as a title challenger on Friday night, drawing 1-1 away at Bentleigh Greens in Victorian Premier League. Turhan Sumbul put Hume City in front at 16 minutes before Ryan De Vries equalised in the 37th. Bentleigh (28 points, +13 goals) is second on the table from Melbourne Knights (28, +7) and Hume (28, -4), behind runaway leader Northcote City. Hume City hosts Dandenong Thunder at Broadmeadows Valley Park at 3pm on Sunday.

FFV STATE LEAGUES North Sunshine Eagles have been expelled from the state league 3 north-west. All the club’s 21 points – good enough for seventh at the end of round 14 – were stripped and the club fined $15,000 over an off-field brawl after the match against Sporting Whittlesea on June 29.

Hands on: Craigieburn’s Jake Layley tackles Taylors Lakes’ Christian Monaco

Coburg and Hadfield. Craigieburn led Taylors Lakes at the last change on Saturday but was swamped by a nine-goal last term from the Lions. Adem Asani booted four goals as best afield, while spearhead Mark Xuereb led Taylors Lakes’ charge to victory. Scott Eldridge booted three goals for Craigieburn, while Corey Vilani and Bryce Mall were other better Eagles. At Willowbrook Reserve, Westmeadows was within two points of Hadfield at half time but could kick only two more goals for the day while the Hawks booted four majors in the third and five in the last. Matt Patane (five goals) and Ferras Mehri (four) led the scoring for Hadfield, while Heath McKerchar was the Hawks’ best. Jarrod Fenton and Mitchell O’Neill were better Tigers. Glenroy’s seven unanswered goals in the opening term set it on course for a comfortable win against West Coburg, 20.11 (131) to 8.9 (57). Billy Morrison kicked five goals for the Roys, while Keegan Shrimpton, Danny Campbell and Travis Dulic were better players. In division 2, Roxburgh Park has gone from challenging for second spot to out of the top four altogether in the space of two games after an 11-point loss to East Keilor. The Cougars led narrowly at every change to set up 8.8 (56) to 6.9 (45) in the low-scoring slog at Overland Reserve. The loss dumped Roxburgh Park (8-7) to fifth, a game behind Keilor Park (9-6) with East Keilor (10-5) claiming third. Nikolas Dimeski and Jamie Grant were Roxburgh Park’s best in the defeat.
