Shisha lounge plan snuffed out BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN flavoured tobacco from a communal hookah water pipe — a custom for many people with a Middle Eastern background. At the hearing, VCAT member Geoffrey Code said the council failed to assess the noise impact from additional hours and patrons. ‘‘The emission of live and recorded music and patron noise when the balcony doors are open or when the balcony is in use was not properly addressed in submissions,’’ he stated. ‘‘Pascoe Vale Road carries high volumes of traffic, but in the absence of evidence, I have doubts that traffic volumes after midnight are anything but light. ‘‘The premises operates until 1am and in warm weather patrons could make good use of the westfacing balcony.’’ Mr Code stated nearby residents had ‘‘made sub-

missions about complaints to the police about patron behaviour at the premises and police officers’ attendance on a number of recent occasions’’. Council city sustainability director Kelvin Walsh said the council accepted and understood the VCAT decision. ‘‘Additional information was put to VCAT that was not available to the council during its earlier consideration of the application,’’ he said. Mr Walsh said the council was unaware whether the lounge owners had plans to submit amended plans to the council. At the council meeting last year, one objector voiced concerns, but the plan was endorsed in a 6-3 vote among councillors. Last month, the state government announced its plans to change legislation for shisha cafes so that, under the Tobacco Act, they cannot operate.

A HUME Council decision to allow a Coolaroo ‘shisha lounge’ to extend its trading hours and increase patron numbers has been knocked back by the state planning authority. In May last year, the Layali Al Samar lounge got a planning permit to increase patronage from 35 to 145 people after 10pm and extend operating hours to 3am each day. Fearing excessive noise and traffic, Meadow Heights residents appealed to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal against the council decision. The lounge, in the Roxburgh Plaza and Homemaker Centre, now operates on Friday-Saturday from 9pm-12.30am and Sunday-Thursday from 6pm12.30am. A shisha lounge allows patrons to smoke fruit-

New face, open mind at the helm in Hume BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN ALTHOUGH he is new to the area, the new Hume police chief is eager to step out to meet and greet. Inspector Timothy Hansen took up his role last week, transferring to Hume after two years in Moorabin. The top two items on his to-do list are having a more visible police presence on the road and an open dialogue with the community. Emergency management, including safety at Melbourne Airport, will also be a key focus. Last week he said he was looking forward to getting to know the ins and outs of the community. ‘‘I’ve never worked up in this area before. It will be a steep learning curve, especially understanding the diversity,’’ he said. ‘‘I’m keen to get around and meet people and understand from their perspective what the issues are and where we are meeting, or not meet-

ing, expectations. I want to make sure that our police resources are in place and that we’re fully staffed and meet the demands of the community. ‘‘We need to have a visible police presence out on the road and work with various agencies across the city to meet their needs.’’ Inspector Hansen’s schedule over the coming weeks includes visits to community groups around the municipality to get to know them better. He has replaced Inspector Paul Allinson, who worked in Hume from March to December last year. Inspector Hansen hopes to provide some consistency to the area. ‘‘One of the problems the public expresses is the constant rotation.’’ Inspector Hansen said emergency management, including safety at Melbourne Airport, would also be a key focus. Taking charge: Timothy Hansen, in his new office, is ready to be out and about. Picture: Michael Copp

Change in the wind: state to ban smoking in public places SMOKING will be banned at Hume playgrounds, children’s sports events, skate parks and swimming pools under new legislation planned by the state government. Further curbs have also been flagged under an amendment to the Tobacco Act due in Parliament this year. Last week Health Minister David Davis announced that his amendments would be applicable across the state and be made in consultation with local governments. The bans will be enforced across the state. Hume Council spokesman Michael Sinclair last week said the council was investigating the feasibility and appropriateness of further smok-

ing bans in public places across Hume. Many councils have enacted their own smoking bans, but the Municipal Association of Victoria has urged its members to wait for the government legislation. “We will draw on the results of those trials . . . of those bans that are currently in place,” Mr Davis said. Breaching the law will attract a fine, suggested at about $140. He said the laws would not add enforcement costs as they tended to be self-enforcing. “People generally see the signs and largely comply”. Mr Davis said an announcement over smoking at outdoor dining areas would be made soon. Greens upper house MP Colleen Hartland set

in motion a bill that would ban smoking at playgrounds, sports grounds and outdoor dining areas. The upper house will continue debating the bill. “We are really doing the work of government,” she said. Last year, the government banned smoking on beaches. She said the government’s actions were “piecemeal” and it was avoiding upsetting the “big players” in the hospitality industry. A technical issues paper on the reforms will be out at the end of of this month for local governments and sports groups to respond to. Consultations will be open for six weeks. Dianella Community Health Broadmeadows

clinical director Ralph Audehm said Hume residents would benefit greatly from the bans. ‘‘I see so much ill health associated with smoking that any sort of intervention to decrease the population’s use of cigarettes would be fantastic,’’ he said. ‘‘In places like Hume we have a higher rate of low socio-economic people, which often means we have higher rates of smoking so it will be important for the government to implement this in Hume. ‘‘Passive smoking is as much an issue for people who don’t smoke as it is for people who do smoke, so decreasing that in the community will also be of benefit.’’ — Dan Moss, State Parliament Editor

Caring folk who do give a toss MORE than 200 people will flip pancakes at a Broadmeadows Pancake Day fund-raiser today. The annual event, which coincides with Shrove Tuesday, is run by Lentara UnitingCare. The organisation aims to raise $500 for disadvantaged people, including those who have been abused, homeless or have a disability. Lentara spokeswoman Kirstie McLaren says the organisation has been involved in Pancake Day for 25 years. ‘‘The money will be put towards our emergency relief program that provides assistance in the form of food and material aid for low-income families to deal with immediate issues of financial hardship and crisis,’’ she said.

The money is also used to provide food, meat and vegetable vouchers. ‘‘We’ve invited over 200 people, including volunteers, staff, board members and local church congregations,’’ Ms McLaren said. ‘‘It is a gold-coin donation event, so we are hoping to raise around $500.’’ Last year, $72,775 was raised in Victoria and Tasmania, up from $50,675 the previous year. — Stephanie Zevenbergen

Half-measures keep homeless on outer BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN THERE is no end in sight for Hume’s homeless population following a damning AuditorGeneral report that says measures to addresses homelessness across the state have not been effective. The report, Addressing Homelessness: Partnerships and Plans, was released last week. It examines the effectiveness of a ‘national partnership agreement on homelessness-Victorian implementation plan’ (NPAH-VIP) in achieving ‘‘sustainable housing and social inclusion’’ for people who are homeless or at risk of it. Acting Auditor-General Peter Frost found that

Ms Vacondios said a crucial element to ending homelessness was the need for more public housing. ‘‘I really think more houses need to be built. That should be the No.1 priority in our country. ‘‘If we have houses at least we can then work on other issues such as finding employment. It’s easier to work on those when you have some stability.’’ Ms Vacondios has been told she may have to wait for up to 10 years for a permanent residence.

Council to Homeless Persons chief executive Jenny Smith said welfare services needed to be properly measured to know if they were effective. ‘‘We know homelessness services in Victoria do great work helping people to get a roof over their heads and their lives back on track, but if we can’t measure it and show it, then funding for these vital services is put at risk,’’ she said. ‘‘The Auditor-General has found that the two programs properly evaluated — A Place to Call Home and Street to Home — have both shown great success. They demonstrate that when people get permanent affordable housing and the support they need to help them keep it, homelessness can be solved.’’

only two of the 24 NPAH-VIP initiatives had effectively contributed to reducing homelessness. Figures from the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the 2011 census, released last year, show that 803 people in Tullamarine and Broadmeadows and 67 in Sunbury were homeless. Across the state, there were 22,789 homeless people on census night, a 21 per cent increase from 2006. Sunbury resident Vicky Vacondios, 38, knows all too well what it’s like to be homeless. Four years ago, she and her three children found themselves in that state following domestic violence. For three months, Ms Vacondios lived out of

Cooler at school as pupils get hand-up BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN

Ready to help out: Funda Uluer with Westmeadows Primary School students.

Picture: Michael Copp

DISADVANTAGED pupils at three Hume primary schools will now get extra one-on-one support with the introduction of primary welfare officers. The officers took up their roles last week under a $124 million state government commitment to help stamp out bullying and provide more support to students and families. Ninety primary schools across the state received an officer for the first time this year. Aitken Creek, Mount Ridley and Westmeadows primary schools are among those which now have welfare officers. Their role is to help the school provide support to students at risk of disengagement or to those not achieving their full potential, while also instilling life skills. Westmeadows principal Anton Mahony said the school was ‘‘over the moon’’ to receive the extra support. He said the new officer, Funda Uluer, would focus on meeting students and following up the

school’s high rate of absenteeism. ‘‘She’ll get into the classrooms, meet the kids and tell them what her role is. ‘‘The beauty of the role is that she is going to follow up with all the children who are regular late-comers to school. ‘‘She will liaise with families to lower absences and thus provide children with more learning opportunities.’’ Mr Mahony said the number of disadvantaged students and parents at the school had risen over the past few years. ‘‘Lots of primary schools have got these counsellors. It’s based on the student family occupation index. That is based on the occupation of parents, the number of education maintenance allowance recipients in the school, the number of unemployed parents and the number of students who have languages other than English. We now meet the government criteria.’’ Ms Uluer said she was looking forward to getting to know the students. ‘‘So far it’s all going good. I’m trying to get all the programs in. I’m meeting all the students, teachers and getting to know what the school’s needs are,’’ she said.

Fire safety starts with us: residents BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN THE Craigieburn Residents Association plans to tackle fire safety among households this year. The decision was made by the association’s 18 members at their annual meeting last week. A Craigieburn resident for 33 years, Denis Moore, has taken over as president. He replaces Erik Dober, who becomes vice-president. Mr Moore said: ‘‘We’re planning to meet with

the CFA to work on fire prevention in the home because a few people were saying neighbours had noticed other neighbours whose backyard had grass a meter high. ‘‘I think the hardest thing is there’s so many homes around Craigieburn that are public housing and the people who rent them just don’t care; there’s no maintenance upkeep. ‘‘That’s what we’ve got to work on. We’ll be speaking to the CFA and speaking to Housing

Minister Wendy Lovell; they better start doing something about it.’’ Hume Council wants residents to clean up around their homes, businesses and vacant lots to reduce the risk of fire this summer. Those who don’t comply face a fine of $1410, imposed by the state government. Mr Moore said the group would also advocate for completion of the Craigieburn Town Centre and getting traffic lights installed at the inter-

section of Hanson and Craigieburn roads. Plans for the multimillion-dollar centre were approved by Hume Council in 2010. It is scheduled to open later this year. Mr Moore said residents were invited to the next meeting on March 6, where Ben Collier, Liberal candidate for the federal seat of McEwen, will be guest speaker. ‘‘If people have issues they want us to get stuck into they can come and throw questions at him,’’ Mr Moore said.

Mark’s a human ‘bridge’ to a better place MARK Lazaric has spent countless hours on the phone helping Broadmeadows’ most disadvantaged people, and now he’s been recognised for his work. Mr Lazaric is a case co-ordinator at the Broadmeadows Service Centre. Last week he was one of 20 case co-ordination team members who received a national Department of Human Service award for their services. Mr Lazaric helps disadvantaged people who struggle to pay bills, who are dealing with substance abuse, have health issues, difficulty

finding employment or need somewhere to live. Since September 2011, the team has helped more than 2100 people and on more than 4000 occasions it has linked people to local services and support organisations. Mr Lazaric says his work gives him a sense of purpose. ‘‘One memorable case was an older gentleman who was referred to us for help in paying his electricity bill,’’ he says. ‘‘During our discussion he revealed he was living in substandard housing without basic access to essential services while he was undergo-

ing treatment for cancer. I was able to immediately connect him with housing outreach services to investigate his living conditions and contact his hospital and other community support organisations to address his health and well-being. ‘‘Within six weeks he and his wife had moved to new accommodation, resolved their bills and were connected with four new service providers.’’ Mr Lazaric says that was one case that showed a simple interaction can lead to happier outcomes. — Stephanie Zevenbergen

Surveying the landscape of Craigieburn art BY STEPHANIE ZEVENBERGEN

Lots to show: Craigieburn Art Group president Rex Amos and Betty Maher are ready to showcase members’ talent.

Picture: Michael Copp

THE canvases will come off the easels and onto the walls for people to admire. A vibrant montage of artistic talent from the Craigieburn Art Group goes on show next weekend. The group will show 190 artworks at the Craigieburn Community Festival, run by Hume Council. The group will also hold a ‘special effort’ fund-raiser for the local SES. Group secretary Betty Maher says it hopes to raise $800. ‘‘We do the ‘special effort’ every year — one of our artists donates a painting and the sales from raffle tickets are given to the Cragieburn SES. ‘‘We try to raise as much money as we can. Sometimes we’ve got up to $800, sometimes $600. We just try and get as many raffle tickets sold as we can.’’ Ms Maher, who will exhibit some of her own paintings, says the paintings will include oils, pastels and water-

colours. ‘‘We’ll have demonstrating artists on Saturday. I’ll be doing some painting. ‘‘I like to paint a bit of everything, but mainly animals. I’m known for my horses and floral work.’’ Ms Maher says the group has come a long way, and its artwork will be more impressive than in previous years. ‘‘You can chat with the artists about their work and maybe buy that special painting you have been looking for. ‘‘It’s a wonderful opportunity to obtain an original work for your home, office or that special gift you’ve been seeking.’’ The group has 15 members and Ms Maher says it is always looking for new members. The exhibition is at the Craigieburn Leisure Centre function room from 10am-5pm on February 23-24. The Craigieburn Community Festival is a free event that has been held for more than 20 years. Attractions include live music, carnival rides, stalls and food.

Plan to leave early: ü Talk to everyone you live with so you all know when you’re going to leave and where you’re going to go if a fire starts. ü Pack a relocation kit with important documents and essential items. ü On high-risk days, check Fire Danger Ratings and fire warnings on the CFA website and listen to local radio.

Top tips for travelling with your pet By Rebecca Miller

rivers going on a long trip usually prepare by having water and snacks on board — and music to pass the time. If pets are travelling along, they also need to be ready for the journey. I recall many times travelling with our family dog, Benny, and his vomiting on the back seat. This common problem, among others, can be prevented. The top things to consider when travelling with pets in the car are: Fear of travelling: For pets with a fear of riding in the car (often on trips to the vet) take them on regular, short journeys to get them used to the experience. Motion sickness: Medication can be bought from the vet to prevent motion sickness, and it can also be avoided by feeding your pet upon arriving at the destination rather than before. Where possible, try having your animal sit in the front seat to avoid nausea. Comfort: Keeping the car at a comfortable temperature is important for animals. A common sight is dogs with their heads

For safety’s sake your tank needs testing. We are a fully certified LPG tank testing station.

out the window to cool down; this should be avoided as flying debris may cause injury. Instead, have the window down enough to allow for fresh air but not enough that their heads to poke out. Safety: Safety restraining your four-legged friend is important to keep them safe and stop them moving around too much and potentially distracting drivers. Safety harnesses, travel kennels and pet barriers all help keep them injury-free. Leaving your pet alone in the car is not OK. Even with windows down the rising temperature can cause heat stroke. And don’t disregard the pet first-aid kit. Frequent pit stops: Pulling over regularly will prevent pets from becoming restless or having ‘accidents’. When stopping to exercise your pet ensure they have a drink of water and go to the toilet— and don’t forget the ‘pooper scooper’! Pet safe: When travelling in the car with your pet ensure they’re comfortably restrained.

Contact the RSPCA or local vet for more information.

A guide along life’s path Getting his own life on track led Charles Vella to help others improve theirs, writes Rebecca Miller

U

2006, I went on to study clinical hypnotherapy.’’ He enjoys the personal satisfaction of helping people become unstuck. ‘‘My career allows me to help a person break free from whatever is holding them back.’’ He aims to improve an individuals quality of life, showing them how to achieve personal and business goals, get over unwanted behaviours and habits, let go of past traumatic events, relieve anxiety and quit addictions. ‘‘People generally seek help from me when mainstream medicine or psychology hasn’t worked and they realise their issue is within their unconscious control,’’ Charles says. He studied with Landmark Education, a course which started him on his journey of self-help and discovery.

‘‘Beyond Landmark, there is one man — hypnotherapist Steve Kormas — who taught me the craft of application, to apply neuro-linguistic program and hypnosis beyond the classroom, ’’says Charles. ‘‘My life is now a constant lesson learnt by helping one individual at a time.’’ Being happy and healthy in life is not just something Charles teaches; he practises it too. ‘‘I’m happy being me: a husband, father, therapist and someone’s friend. I visit the gym regularly, cycle with friends and enjoy spending time with my family and renovating my home.’’ Charles has advice for anyone interested in a career as a life coach: ‘‘Work from your heart, train with a craftsman and love what you do.’’

nder his father’s influence, Essendon’s Charles Vella became a mechanical and electrical engineer. Later, though, his career took a turn, one towards helping others. Charles says his role as a life coach and clinical hypnotherapist is rewarding and satisfying beyond words. ‘‘Engineering is a satisfying career and can be rewarding, but to help a person achieve something they didn’t think they could or help them become unstuck is even more so’’. A self-help course led him to his new career. ‘‘I attended self-help courses to get my life on track. After a few, I achieved amazing results in my life — then I wanted to facilitate change for others,’’ says Charles. ‘‘After graduating from a neurolinguistic life coaching program in

Clubs glance over shoulder BY LANCE JENKINSON WHILE Australia’s professional sports reel in the wake of last week’s Australian Crime Commission report on performance-enhancing drugs in sport, the flow-on effect to suburban level is still to be measured. Eradicating, or even detecting, the use of illicit or performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) at a grassroots level of sport is no mean feat, according to Victorian Rugby League general manager Brent Silva. The VRL was alarmed at ACC findings last week of widespread use of PEDs in Australian professional sport, but Silva was confident their use not an issue in community rugby league in Victoria. ‘‘In terms of performance-enhancing products, you’re more likely to get it at the higher level, where players are on the fringe and trying to make a living out of the game,’’ he said. ‘‘At the higher level, when you’re trying to earn a contract, where it could be the difference between $50,000 a year contract and a $200,000 a year contract, there is an incentive.’’

When a player or an official joins a local rugby league club, they sign a document stating they will abide by the VRL’s rules and regulations. ‘‘Even at our level, we come under the WADA [World Anti-Doping Agency] code, but ASADA generally don’t test at the community level,’’ Silva said. ‘‘So, you’re not tested for that sort of thing.’’ AFL Victoria responded last week by reiterating that any competition managed under the Laws of Australian Football is bound by the antidoping code. AFL Victoria and ASADA have agreed about a testing program for the VFL. However suburban and country leagues do not have the same level of resourcing. ‘‘If a player has any doubt whatsoever then they should not consume a medication or supplement without first seeking medical or professional advice on whether it contains a banned performance-enhancing substance,’’ AFL Victoria said in its statement. ‘‘Community football players can also be tested by ASADA as the competitions in which they play are operated and managed under the Laws of Australian Football.

‘‘More broadly, an education resource is currently being developed for community leagues to pass on to clubs and their players.’’ Further questions were put to the Essendon District Football League on Friday but had not been answered when the Weekly went to print on Sunday. The Victorian Rugby Union, governing body of community rugby in this state, wants to ensure the use of PEDs does not filter down to the club level or its representative teams. VRU community rugby manager Charlie Bamford plans to meet club officials in the leadup to the new season to discuss clubs putting their medical staff on register that is easily accessible for the VRU. ‘‘Given the recent reports that have been tabled, this will be a topic of discussion and we will be placing an emphasis on the clubs to ensure they are exercising their duty of care in these areas,’’ Bamford said. ‘‘We will be asking them to, with the issues we’ve faced in the last week, register all their medical people so that we are across that.’’ — with Teo Pellizzeri

Cannons size up what’s on offer BY TEO PELLIZZERI

A FRIDAY evening in February doesn’t have the same ring as One Day in September, but for a number of aspiring Calder Cannons players the stakes were just as high last week. The Cannons held their first organised game of pre-season training with an intra-club at Craigieburn’s Highgate Reserve, mainly consisting of bottom-age players. Few at the Cannons were expecting a 12-goal difference between the teams of trialling players. But the margin was not as relevant as the performances for players striving to break into this year’s TAC Cup team. The Cannons will now play doubleheader trials against Bendigo, Northern Knights and Western Jets before naming their final TAC Cup list early next month. About 20 top-age Cannons acted as boundary umpires as they ran laps of the ground, sizing up the candidates. Cannons coach Andrew Jago spent the match patrolling the field, occasionally stopping the game to issue an instruction, but largely addressing players behind the play. ‘‘Most of our top-agers were deliberately rested, it’s really to try and gain some information on kids that are bottom age or new to the under-18 program,’’ Jago said.

High fliers: Greenvale’s Arthur Petershyn gets a hand to the ball under pressure from club mate Ricky Schraven. ‘‘They’ve been selected because they’re standouts at local level, give them the chance to compete against players at the same level. ‘‘Being at ground level, what I was seeing out there is something that’s different to what the video will show me. ‘‘At the moment I have impressions of who was communicating, who was setting up, the ball movement, but to have a look from an overall perspective will give me a bit of balance.’’ Jago said the players on the fringes of TAC Cup selection were well aware

of the stakes heading into the practicematch series. ‘‘This will be part of our criteria to make decisions . . . we have a sports psych out here full time who spoke to them about their preparation. ‘‘It’s not purely instinctive yet, players are thinking things through. But at this stage of the season that’s understandable. ‘‘The players’ job now is to make our life exceptionally difficult, and a few of them did tonight. We’re a long way from finalising our list yet.’’
