McGuire touts auto worker claims A STOUSH over whether there will be separate or joint funds for 1150 Ford workers losing jobs in Broadmeadows and Geelong hit the Victorian Parliament last week. Broadmeadows MP Frank McGuire asked Premier Denis Napthine whether Melbourne’s north would have its own Ford fund or be dealt with as part of a Geelongled solution. “I call on the Coalition not to dud the people of Broadmeadows over the distribution of the funding following the demise of Ford,” Mr McGuire told Parliament. “My concern is how the structural adjustment funds will be divided between Broadmeadows and

‘My concern is that there should be two separate funds.’ Melbourne’s north as one region, and Geelong as the other centre for Ford’s production.” Ford’s contribution of $10 million to the transition fund announced earlier this month brought the total package committed by federal and state governments and the company to $64.1 million, of which the state committed $9 million. Meanwhile, state opposition leader Daniel Andrews pledged a Labor government would match the initial federal funding promise of $30 million, which Prime Minister

Julia Gillard boosted by a further $15.1 million last week. “My concern is that there should be two separate funds divided on a needs basis in the public interest and not according to political selfinterest,” Mr McGuire said. The question drew a direct response from Dr Napthine. “I advise the member for Broadmeadows that those matters are still under discussion between the state and the Commonwealth [governments],” he said. Dr Napthine said he shared the optimism of Hume mayor Geoff Porter and chief executive Domenic Isola about opportunities to develop jobs and the economy of Broadmeadows. “They talked about the advantages


of being close to the airport, which is a curfew-free area with the potential for the building of a third runway,” Dr Napthine said. “A $110  million fire and emergency services training facility is being developed at Craigieburn at the moment.” A spokesman for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation Minister Greg Combet told the Weekly there was no question of a single jobs funding and retraining package for both Geelong and Broadmeadows. “There will definitely be two funds,” the spokesman said. “The Australian and Victorian governments will appoint independent local representatives to the advisory committees for the funds.”

Youth Projects film on homeless wins sweet reaction laneways of Melbourne, taking them to places where she slept rough, did drugs and had unprotected sex for money. At the recent awards ceremony in San Francisco, the Youth Projects clip, created by new collective Grown Ups, won second place in the “best video” category. Youth Projects chairwoman Melanie Raymond said the hardhitting clip was praised by judges of the awards for not “sugar coating” the issues involved with youth homelessness. “We need better community awareness about the depth of the problem and the complex responses needed to intervene,” she said.

Anti-violence campaign close to Cannons’ hearts

Gong for Tullamarine firm

hit outside a bar in Moonee Ponds by Nicholas Keon, then 23, of Watsonia North. Keon was sentenced in 2009 to six years’ jail over the attack. “David was directly involved in an incident that nearly cost him his life and placed him in rehab for nearly two years. He continues to work to regain as close to full health as he can,’’ Kyte said. “Our conditioning co-ordinator was present when David was attacked and helped with first aid. It was a very emotional hour listening to Dave’s account of the assault, particularly given the close family and friendship ties to the Calder Cannons.” Luke Mitchell, who is part of the campaign, said: “David wasn’t expected to make it through the night, but he fought against the odds to survive the attack and has been able to piece his life back together slowly. “While having to re-learn basic tasks such as tying your own shoelaces might not sound like a lucky break, other victims of street violence never get that chance.” — Tara Murray

Secure Bits,a specialist IT and critical infrastructure service provider based in Tullamarine, has been named ‘‘best national small business’’ for its support of Australian defence force reservists. The recognition came at the National Employer Support Awards in Canberra last week. The company employs a number of staff with highlevel Commonwealth security clearances and aviation security identification cards to enable seamless work at government and airport sites across Australia.

Walking in others’ shoes

Michael Copp

THE Calder Cannons Football Club had more reasons than most to be involved with the ‘Lace Up’ campaign over the weekend. The campaign was organised by Step Back Think, a not-forprofit organisation aiming to raise awareness of street violence through community campaigns and school education. Over the weekend, players of more than 400 Victorian football clubs, including Sunbury’s, wore orange shoelaces as part of the campaign to take a stand against violence. Calder Cannons region manager Ian Kyte said the club, which covers the north-western suburbs extending to the Macedon Ranges, wanted to be involved in the campaign having experienced street violence first hand. “David Mitchell, who is a brother of a former Cannons player [current Carlton player Luke Mitchell] and close friend of our conditioning co-ordinator Steve Forcone, came and spoke to our TAC Cup squad.” In 2008, David, then 19, was king-

Scrap runway in favour of Avalon jobs, MPs urged By Helen Grimaux GLADSTONE Park resident and Fight the Flight Path supporter Frank Rivoli is calling on state and federal politicians to reject Melbourne Airport’s third runway plan in favour of development at Avalon. “The review of the proposed Melbourne Airport expansion could provide an opportunity to create long-term jobs and prosperity for the Geelong region,” Mr Rivoli wrote in his letter to Prime Minister Julia

Gillard and federal parliamentarians Bill Shorten, Kevin Rudd, Anthony Albanese, Darren Cheeseman and Sophie Mirabella. He also sent the letter last week to Victorian ministers Matthew Guy and Terry Mulder, Premier Denis Napthine and opposition leader Daniel Andrews. Mr Rivoli said communities living around Melbourne Airport had been disadvantaged by retrospective changes to land use caused by the amendment to the state planning act in 2007, introduced by then planning

minister Justin Madden. “There are an estimated 5900 properties affected by these changes,” Mr Rivoli said. “Potentially, property values could drop by $40,000. “For those under the proposed flight path, there are new building and land use restrictions which have to be complied with.” Mr Rivoli said Melbourne Airport management had advised of more than 2600 properties in noise zones, and that the costs to install noise insulation could add up to as much

as $10,000 a property. “The broad financial cost to the communities is in the order of $236 million for loss of property value and $26 million for the noise abatement works,” he said. “So far the state and local governments are quite happy for this to be borne by the property owners.” The public consultation period over the draft plan for Melbourne Airport ends on August 21. The draft is available at au/masterplan and from libraries and municipal offices.

The CEO Sleepout, organised by St Vincent de Paul Society, will bring some hot shots of big business down to ground zero on Thursday night at Etihad Stadium. The annual ‘sleepout’ is one of the charity’s biggest fund-raising efforts for homelessness services in Hume. Coolaroo company EPS is sending its managing director Andrew Stone, who sees the event as a chance to pay some “societal dues”. Mr Stone has personal experience of losing friends due to changed circumstances, and he points to the US-based system of “tything”, where it is commonplace for wellpaid executive to pledge 10 per cent of their salaries to charities of their choice.”

Hume tops speeding list in birthday blitz By Helen Grimaux A ROAD blitz over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend paid off for Victoria Police, but left Hume inspector Tim Hansen disappointed that safety messages were not getting through to people. Speeding offences in Hume were the state’s highest, he said. Most of the 739 traffic infringments issued in the Hume area were for speeding. He said Hume officers were joined by colleagues from Sunbury, Fawkner highway patrol and the state highway patrol to man Melbourne’s northern gateways. They put in 1949 patrol hours from Friday afternoon to Monday evening and conducted 7476 breath tests. Automatic number plate recognition technology (ANPR) played a large part in the crackdown, he said. Inspector Hansen warned that the technology was here to stay, with speed the focus of renewed police efforts over coming months. “We are doing the ANPR rollout with the Sherriff’s office and we are detecting high rates of unlicensed drivers and unlicensed vehicles,” he

said. “There is a strategy to place this technology around the region and continue our enforcement on an ongoing basis.” He was also disappointed that 1052 drivers in the state were caught talking on mobile phones or not wearing seatbelts. “It’s surprising people are not wearing seatbelts after all this time,” he said. “In a car, people often act like they are in a cocoon and they don’t take responsibility for others, let alone themselves.” Inspector Hansen said the distraction factor of talking on a mobile phone while driving was akin to drink-driving. “It costs about $100 for a handsfree; it is certainly not expensive.” Inspector Hansen said good weather over the weekend had helped keep injuries and fatalities to a minimum, with two deaths on the state’s roads and none in Hume. “Heavy traffic, wet roads and speed are a recipe for disaster,” he said. “While I’m happy there were no fatals [in Hume], I am disappointed overall and we will be reinforcing our road safety messages about cars and drivers.”

Residents add to action plan

By Helen Grimaux

CULTURAL diversity in Hume will be the subject of a series of community discussions, starting today, about the council’s multicultural action plan. Communities are being asked for their views about how the council can enhance communication, engagement and cultural connections across the municipality. Mayor Geoff Porter said feedback from the sessions would be used to finalise the Hume multicultural action plan 2013-2018. “Residents from more than 166 countries now call Hume home,” Cr Porter said. “We are one of the fastest-growing municipalities in Australia, not just because of the rich cultural diversity but also due to the urban growth and development occurring across the city. ‘‘In our community, 41 per cent of people speak a language other than English at home.”

A DALLAS mother of six is among Hume artists shortlisted for this year’s AMES and Multicultural Arts Victoria Heartlands Refugee Art Prize. The shortlisted entries will be on display at the Heartlands Refugee Art Prize exhibition at fortyfivedownstairs in Flinders Lane from today until June 29. Later, they will be at Walker Street Gallery in Dandenong from July 4-27 as part of the Emerge Festival, then at the Homestead at Werribee Park from September 1-14. Works by Dallas residents Yosef Al Mussawi and mother-of-six Athraa Al Sawafy, Broadmeadows resident Reem Faiq and Roxburgh Park’s Zakia and Rubaba Haider and Rana Tallo are included in the exhibition. It includes paintings, drawings, photography and mixed media works from 70 refugee artists. This year, artists have shared their interpretation of what they would

Push to sweep slavery off shelves

Tourism boon for Hume

Say no to slavery: Local church representatives hand postcards to Maria Vamvakinou to pressure the government into taking action.

where slavery and human trafficking were involved. Dr Zirnsak said the postcards pointed out that no government efforts were being made to identify Australian companies importing goods or services that involved bonded labour or slavery. He accused Australia of lagging behind other developed nations, most notably the US, in applying pressure on

companies to ensure goods they import and sell are free from slavery and human trafficking. He called for a slavery-free guarantee system similar to Fair Trade. Dr Zirnsak said the protest postcards would be sent on to Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus, and he anticipated they would be presented to the Federal Parliament within the next two weeks.

TRADE expos and industry showcases are high on the list of economic drivers in Hume, according to the council’s 201115 tourism strategy. The report, which went before last week’s council meeting, found tourism attracted 1.32  million visitors to the municipality last year and is now the fifth-largest economic driver in Hume. The strategy found tourism supported almost 4000 jobs and had generated more than $1 billion over the past year. Mayor Geoff Porter said by working with local industry and tourism operators, the council had forged a number of initiatives and partnerships to raise the profile of tourism, and had promoted the region as a quality repeat visitor destination. “Over the next 12 months, Hume council will continue to work  ...  to deliver the actions identified in the strategy and guide the long-term development of tourism in Hume,” he said.

Lord of the

Adam Bull tells Robert Fedele about his journey from the back streets of Laverton to international acclaim.




n a rare moment of downtime, principal artist Adam Bull kindly obliges to a request for a brief tour of the Australian Ballet’s Southbank headquarters. Cheerful and polite, Bull plays the role of gracious host perfectly, zigzagging his way through hallways as though he is proudly showing someone around his family home. At 194 centimetres and with curly blonde locks, he commands attention even when not performing. Today he’s dressed down in grey tracksuit pants and a white singlet, barefoot but for black socks so his precious feet can take a well earned breather. It’s not long before Bull is momentarily stopped in his tracks. ‘‘Good to see you back,’’ whispers a woman passing by, her face flushed with admiration. Bull later unmasks his admirer as Ann Jenner, now a teacher with the ballet company but once a principal ballerina with London’s Royal Ballet and a star of yesteryear. He goes on to explain how he has just returned home after performing the Sydney leg of the company’s latest ballet, Vanguard. The passing pleasantries continue and it quickly becomes evident that Bull is somewhat of a big deal around here. The excursion resumes, passing several identical studio spaces before we stop, peering through a rectangular window at the door numbered six.

Inside is a cluster of teenage boys wearing blue leotards, their taut bodies twisting in unison to the delicate sounds of a piano which is heard but not seen. For Bull, the picture is like looking through a crystal ball transporting him back to his childhood. ‘‘It doesn’t feel that long ago that I was down there as a student,’’ he beams. ‘‘It’s surreal sometimes to take a look back at where you’ve come from. It’s a big journey.’’ He’s often dubbed Australia’s version of Billy Elliot due to his working-class roots. Bull’s story begins in the late 1980s when he was a little tacker at Laverton Primary School. His grade 1 teacher, Janine Kip, the woman he counts as his inspiration, pushed him into ballet. Back then neither Bull, nor his family, knew anything of ballet and he jokes that Kip presumably must have seen him jumping around the staff room. ‘‘She saw something in me and encouraged my family to take me to dance lessons. I don’t know what it was that she saw.’’ Kip remembers Bull as a happy-go-lucky kid who would dance on the playground asphalt and turn heads. ‘‘He was out there in the elements with an extension cord and the school’s PA system and he did Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror with his little chair and sparkly top.’’ Bull would soon take to ballet like a duck to water at Brian Nolan Academy of Dance, studying under the former Australian Ballet member at his Werribee studio. He remembers his old stomping ground being wedged between a mechanic’s workshop and a karate school.

is envied by all around them.’’ Bull leapt across to the Australian Ballet in his teens and has remained a staple of the company, which is held in high regard worldwide. The tight-knit group of 70-odd dancers performs about 180 shows a year. In 2008, Bull was promoted to the highest ballet rank in the country, becoming a principal artist with the Australian Ballet. Even now, five years on, he’s still both chuffed and humbled by the title. ‘‘You never rest and go ‘yeah I’ve made it!’. Where I am now, people go, ‘Oh, my God, you’re a principal of the Australian ballet’. But I don’t sit back and say I’ve done all the hard work. Every day it gets harder and harder.’’ True to his word, Bull’s schedule seems like the very definition of hard work. It is mid-morning and he’s already taking a break from pilates and stretching in the upstairs gym. There’s a ballet class from 10.30am to noon, rehearsals from noon to 2.30pm, then lunch and more rehearsals until well into the evening. This routine takes place six days a week and intensifies even further during a performance’s season – not that dancers always have the luxury of concentrating on one performance at a time. Right now Bull is rolling out Vanguard while also preparing for Swan Lake just around the corner. Is it worth it? ‘‘It’s too much work for it not to be,’’ Bull retorts. ‘‘If you didn’t love it you couldn’t put your body through what we do.’’

With the company, he has travelled overseas regularly, performing in Paris, London, Tokyo, and a week in New York last year when the company performed Swan Lake. Bull is reluctant to pluck out a highlight from life on the road but says the New York show stands out. ‘’My mum had never seen me dance overseas before. She came over and saw me. It was really emotional. The audience response, as soon as the curtains went down, they all went crazy.’’ Asked about the feeling on stage, Bull says each performance produces a different vibe. ‘‘I still get nervous. Twenty years later, before every show, I still get butterflies. There’s always doubts in your head. But once you hit the stage you just lose yourself. ‘‘Sometimes you’re on a high and loving it. Sometimes you’re sore and injured, but you still have to go out and deliver to 3000 people.’’ Bull concedes ballet is a cut-throat world but says for the most part dancers are supportive of each other, even though there is always someone who can step into your shoes. ‘‘The pressure comes more from within yourself. You’re always so hard on yourself. You come off stage and you can always do better. You’re never happy. ‘‘Even though they’re all beautiful people [fellow dancers], there is a silent competitiveness. We’re all pushing for the same roles. So there’s all these things behind your shoulder but not in an evil, scary way.’’ For Bull, it is time, not other dancers, with whom he must compete. At 31 he is nearer to the end of his performing career than the beginning, the wear and tear on his body making its presence felt.



Danielle Smith

Nolan he recalls as strict but fair, a teacher from the school of hard knocks. ‘‘He was hard. He was a really tough teacher for a little suburban ballet school. But he taught me a lot and got me to a level where I thought, wow, I can do this’.’’ Nolan makes no apologies for his methods and reckons a bit of tough love gets the best out of his pupils. When Bull, a skinny, gawky kid, walked in the door Nolan immediately knew he had something special to work with. Bull took to it ‘‘possessed’’, he says, and had a unique demeanour, carrying himself with elegance and pride. ‘‘I knew from his very first class at seven years old that he was going to be good. By the following year I remember boasting to teachers at ballet competitions that he was potentially that good that he would be a principal with the Australian Ballet one day. The teachers laughed at me, but I knew what I was talking about.’’ Still, even the naturals need prodding. Nolan spent 11 years with Bull, honing his craft for a distant tomorrow, right up until he waved goodbye and set off for the Australian Ballet at age 17. Nolan counts himself lucky to have taught Bull then Valerie Tereshchenko, also with the Australian Ballet, and now Milei Lee, an eightyear-old prodigy he believes will outshine them all. ‘‘It is said that we only get one extraordinary student in our lifetime and I thought after Adam there would not be any more but I was fortunate,’’ Nolan says. ‘‘They all have that special thing about them that one can’t describe and put into words that

‘‘We’re so reliant on our body and being able to be in peak form. And, just like that, anything can go,” he says. ‘‘It’s always in the back of my head. If I have another five years – great. If I have 10, that would be ridiculously good. I take every day as it is and hope it’s not my last.’’ Pressed about the future, Bull reckons coaching at the Australian Ballet wouldn’t be such a bad gig. ‘‘I push it out of my head sometimes, but I do have to think about it. You have made such a commitment at such a young age. It’s all I know. It’s quite scary. ‘‘Just to pass on what I’ve been taught would be a great gift.’’ Outside of ballet, Bull is a travel and adventure junkie. He’s already visited the Antarctic, and the Galapagos Islands are next on the horizon. Who knows where life will take him next. What is certain is that the boy from workingclass Laverton grew up to be a star, as many had predicted. But at home he’s just the same old Adam. ‘‘I’m going to mum and dad’s tonight,’’ he smiles. ‘‘I haven’t seen them since I’ve been back. Mum and dad always put on a spread. She asked last night, ‘What do you want for tea?’ I said, ‘I don’t care, mum. Whatever you’re making is fine’.’’ The Australian Ballet’s new show, Graeme Murphy’s Swan Lake, runs from June 21 to July 1 at the State Theatre, Arts Centre, Melbourne, 100 St Kilda Road.

Five-year ban for caravan man By Helen Grimaux CRAIGIEBURN caravan supplier Antonios Giannakos has been banned from trading for five years. Giannakos, owner of Champion Caravans, was banned by the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court from trading for five years after admitting he accepted payments from consumers for custom-built caravans he failed to deliver. During that time, the Hume Highway businessman cannot sell caravans and campervans or accept deposits for their manufacture. He has also been ordered to pay more than $3000 in legal costs in relation to his failure to deliver the caravans for which he had accepted money. Consumer Affairs Victoria instigated proceedings against Mr Giannakos in the court for contraventions of the Australian Consumer Law (Victoria) after receiving a number of complaints from consumers. On its website,, Champion Caravans and Mr Giannakos were offering to manufacture caravans for consumers when, in fact, they were subcontracting the work to other manufacturers.

The company was still advertising through late last week. Consumer Affairs Victoria acting director Phil D’Adamo said: “Charging a customer thousands of dollars and failing to provide anything in return is not just unacceptable, it’s illegal. “Mr Giannakos has put his livelihood on the line through his actions and the fiveyear ban from trading and selling caravans should serve as a reminder to any other traders who take large payments and fail to provide the goods or services agreed to.’’ Two complaints involving interstate consumers paying about $45,000 each to have caravans built sparked the consumer affairs advocate’s legal action. The consumers had been told their caravans would be ready by early November last year, but when they travelled to Melbourne to pick them up as agreed, they were told they could not collect their caravans as the sub-contractor had not been paid by Mr Giannakos. Mr D’Adamo said people who believed a trader had acted unfairly should try to negotiate directly, in the first instance. More information at or call 1300 558 181.

High noon for Broncos, Hawks By Teo Pellizzeri Hume City Broncos will get to measure how far they’ve come in the Big V women’s state championship this weekend as their double-header ends with a showdown against fellow title contender Ringwood Hawks. The Lady Broncos rolled through Melbourne Tigers 77-64 on Saturday night to improve to 11-and-two in second place on the table, behind Ringwood (11-1). The only other team to beat Hume City, McKinnon, is third with an eight-and-four record. Tarryn MacPherson scored 22 points and Yinka Olorunnife 18 to go with 13 rebounds in the win against Melbourne. But an 89-61 loss when Hume City travelled to Ringwood in late April is fresh in the memory ahead of this weekend’s rematch.

“Against Ringwood we can’t slack on defence, which we’ve been doing a little too much. We’ve got good team camaraderie. If we’re down we can swallow our pride and stick together to get back up.” Hume City coach Warren Taylor said the on- and off-court leadership of Sharin Milner and Katrina Hibbert had been a key part of keeping the wins coming. “We know where we stand. Ringwood are setting the pace and we’re snapping at their heels,” Taylor said. “And, on our best day, they’re beatable. “The lesson from the Ringwood loss was that, defensively, they made us look ordinary behind the ball and made us scramble. “They’ve got great depth and run motion very well, but it’s similar to what we run so I think we’re built well to beat them. We just need to tighten up a few things.” The Lady Broncos play Bulleen Boomers at Templestowe on Saturday night before tipping off at 2pm, Sunday, against Ringwood at Broadmeadows Basketball Stadium.
