Money or the box, council told But Powercor says the council should foot the bill. ‘‘It was planned and built in consultation with the council, and we fully complied with their requirements and views,’’ a spokesman said last week. ‘‘It would be difficult for Powercor to now impose extra costs on our electricity customers to relocate the kiosk because of council’s change of mind.’’ The community, council and Powercor agree that the best location for the substation would be behind existing toilets in The Crescent. But this option comes with a price tag of $110,000. Lancefield streetscape committee member Rhonda Cusack said the substation was a ‘‘big, industrial box’’ in the middle of the High Street plantation. ‘‘The plantation and the whole of High Street has a heritage overlay on it and anyone

BY ANGELA VALENTE MACEDON Ranges Council and residents are waging a battle with Powercor over who is liable to pay up to $110,000 for the relocation of a power substation in Lancefield. The substation was built in May in the centre median strip of High Street in Lancefield, where the community had planned works to beautify the area. In June, the council accepted a petition with 621 signatures, calling on Powercor to relocate the sub-station to another spot, with greater consideration of amenity. Before the substation was built, Powercor advised the council of its intention, although it’s not required to under state laws. At a meeting last week, the council decided to lobby Powercor to fully fund the relocation of the sub-station to a more suitable location.

who wants to do any work on the plantation has to jump through hoops with the council. ‘‘Powercor and other facility providers are exempt from the overlay, which is ludicrous. ‘‘The fact is that Powercor has disregard for the amenity of the town and what we’re trying to do.’’ The Powercor spokesman said the site was chosen because it offered the best supply solution for the town, particularly the commercial area. ‘‘The kiosk is a significant community improvement that will enhance both the capacity and the reliability of Lancefield’s electricity supply. ‘‘It has also improved community amenity in that some overhead wires have been moved underground, and it will allow for the possibility of other wires along the main street being placed underground in the future.’’

Council agrees to $4m hub for children BY ANGELA VALENTE A FOUR-million-dollar early years hub will be built at Daly Reserve in Gisborne. The building will combine a three- and fouryear-old kindergarten with a maternal child health centre and consulting rooms for visiting specialist children’s services. Last Wednesday, the Macedon Ranges Council agreed to build the hub at 63 Howey Street. There are two kindergartens in Gisborne — at Grant and Swinburne avenues. The Grant Avenue site has reached capacity for

kindergarten places. A feasibility study for the hub, tabled at the council meeting last week, highlighted an ‘‘immediate need’’ to expand the number of licensed early education and care places in Gisborne. It found that some parents travel as far as Melbourne to visit a paediatrician. Mayor Henry McLaughlin said the Grant Avenue site was landlocked, with no scope for expansion. ‘‘This new building will cater for the growing demand for family and children’s services in the Gisborne community,’’ he said.

‘‘The initial response from the community about this proposal has been positive, but the council will be doing further consultation with residents and community groups in the Daly Reserve area over the coming weeks.’’ The council will seek $1.5 million from the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. The council will contribute $1.9 million from its 2013-14 budget. It has already allocated $100,000 from its 2012-13 budget for the hub design. It will sell the Grant Avenue kindergarten

property, which will provide a further $300,000 for the project. Councillors John Letchford and Rob Guthrie supported the council’s decision to build the hub but raised concerns about the limited community consultation. The council’s community well-being director Karen Stevens said that consultation involved telephone calls to two residents who lived near the reserve and also the Gisborne 1st Scouts, who meet at the community hall at the reserve. She reiterated that further consultations were planned.

Friends join cancer fight to help make a difference ‘‘For me, I just wanted to do something concrete. ‘‘I feel very lucky to have two out of three people I know survived cancer. I think that’s fantastic and worth celebrating.’’ Cancer Council Victoria spokeswoman Deb Stringer said that last year 3358 Girls Night In events were held in Victoria, raising almost $1.2 million. ‘‘It’s a great way to raise cancer awareness among women, while simultaneously raising funds for women’s cancers. ‘‘So many women have been touched by cancer in some way, and supporting this event means you’ll be making a difference to the thousands of women affected by cancer each year.’’ The campaign hopes to raise more than $1.4 million this year and recruit 4735 hosts, one for every Victorian woman diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancer this year.

SALLY Sutherland is bringing her friends together to help fight women’s cancers. It’s a cause that’s close to the New Gisborne resident’s heart. ‘‘My first experience with cancer was a long time ago. A colleague of mine and friend had breast cancer and she died more than 10 years ago. ‘‘My sister developed breast cancer about 10 years ago and she’s a survivor. Then my sister-inlaw developed cancer a few years ago and she’s survived that.’’ Next month, Mrs Sutherland and her daughter Meaghan will round up about 15 friends and host a Cancer Council Girls Night In fund-raiser. Last year, they raised $700. They are hoping to raise more this year. ‘‘Everyone brings a plate and a bottle, and we eat and drink and laugh all together. I was very surprised with the amount we raised last year. We might make it a little bigger this year and spread our wings a bit.’’ Mrs Sutherland encouraged Macedon Ranges residents to hold a fund-raiser. ‘‘There’s lots of support out there. I encourage anyone who is going to have a friend around to have a go at it.

Kyneton industrial hub planned A DEDICATED area for industrial growth will be developed in Kyneton just north of the town. The Kyneton industrial master plan was supported by Macedon Ranges Council at its meeting last Wednesday. It outlines plans to develop 139 hectares of commercial land and estimates the creation of 2780 jobs in building the estate. The land is between Edgecombe, Saleyards and Redesdale roads. Mayor Henry McLaughlin said the council

Macedon Ranges Council has resolved to write to Premier Ted Baillieu, Roads Minister Terry Mulder, all local MPs, and shadow ministers requesting immediate intervention to make all roads that fall under VicRoads’ responsibility in the shire safer. The council is concerned about the continued deterioration of VicRoadsmanaged roads. Last week the Weekly reported that minor potholes along the Calder Freeway between Woodend and Sunbury had become hazardous because of constant bad weather and traffic.

— Angela Valente

had worked with landowners in the past 18 months to support business investment in the town. ‘‘We know that there is a demand for industrial land in Kyneton, not only for new and established businesses which want to relocate or expand, but also from businesses in the Bendigo region that are keen to have a presence closer to Melbourne but still located on the Calder Freeway. ‘‘Many major landholders of the industrialzoned land in this area are ready to develop, with others very keen to work with the council to identify opportunities.’’

‘Concerted effort’ on road safety

mainly on flowers and fruit. ‘‘They chose me,’’ she said. ‘‘I see things that I think are amazing.’’ This is the first solo exhibition for Benham who paints with watercolours. For each piece she can use up to 30 washes of watercolour to gain the vibrant colours seen in her work. The exhibition, at the Chamber Art and Coffee House in Woodend, will run until September 30. It can be viewed from 9am-5pm Wednesday to Sunday.

INBRIEF

Drawing inspiration from a natural world THE intricate detail and the shapes of a birds’ nest sing to John Nicholson. This month, the Riddells Creek resident has an exhibit of 17 birds’ nests drawings alongside Woodend artist Coral Benham. Small objects from the ‘natural world’ provide the theme for the joint exhibition which opened last Saturday. Nicholson has a background in book illustration, writing and architecture. ‘‘Birds’ nests are very satisfying to draw,’’ he said. ‘‘They have a simple classic shape which looks great on the page, but there is something deeper about them. ‘‘There’s something people find comforting and satisfying to find, or to create nests for ourselves.’’ Nicholson’s work will sit alongside a variety of pieces by Ms Benham, whose artworks centre

The plan aims to ensure that future development in the industrial estate will cater for current and future demand and create jobs. ‘‘The landowners are very pleased with the process and layout of the master plan, with some already developing their subdivision applications and just waiting for a green light,’’ Cr McLaughlin said. An industrial estate has been operating in New Gisborne since 2010. The council’s chief executive Peter Johnston said two-thirds of land in the New Gisborne industrial estate had been sold.

Art makes splash at pool site Kyneton’s disused outdoor pools will be transformed into a temporary art installation by a group of young people. The group will use the walls and floor of the main and wading pools as their canvas with a series of visuals to represent their understanding of ‘active transport’. Residents can view the finished project at 10.30am-3pm on Saturday, September 15. There will also be bike demonstrations and maintenance workshops. The pool site is in Mollison Street, Kyneton.

A MULTIMILLION-dollar development in Kyneton’s historic Piper Street has been given a tick of approval by Macedon Ranges Council. The development, proposed by businessman Graham Jasper, is at the corner of Wedge and Piper streets and includes the construction of six retail shops along Piper Street and a 40-seat cafe. The proposal includes the addition of 41 car parking spots, removal of trees and renovations to the existing Emporium site. At a council meeting last week, engineers recommended councillors refuse the planning permit. But it was overturned and the council gave the proposal the green light. In April, Mr Jasper gained the council approval for a similar plan but decided not to proceed because of the economic conditions at the time. He has since made changes and additions to his first proposal. ‘‘The global economic crisis had just started

and I had thought that the economy was going to fall in a hole. I didn’t see any point going forward at that time. There were objectors with strong views against what was being proposed,’’ he said last week. ‘‘I thought it might be best to step back and have another think about it and proceed when the economy has a chance of picking up. ‘‘It is going to take some time to get the development happening and ready for people to occupy. But we’re pleased we’ve got the approval.’’ Mr Jasper said Piper Street had a unique feel and lured many tourists. ‘‘People come here to experience unique things to the area. There will be more retail [shops] providing more unique products.’’ Council’s economic and tourism manager Kylie Lethbridge said job growth was positive for the Macedon Ranges. ‘‘Any development that creates jobs is important to the shire, particularly in the current climate.’’

Win means it’s back to the drawing board BY ANGELA VALENTE FOUR Romsey residents say a Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal decision has ruled in favour of protecting the town’s heritage trees. The four appealed to the VCAT after Macedon Ranges Council approved a development at 105 Main Street at a meeting last December. The developers, Lancefield and Romsey Community Financial Services, are proposing to build a two-storey community bank at the site. Michael and Anne Goldsworthy, who live in the former National Bank building at 103 Main Street, next door to the proposed development, opposed planning approval. They said the site was an ‘‘over-development’’ and they wanted to see an appropriate building which reflected the town’s heritage characteristics. The community bank development included a two-storey building with seven shops, a bakery, bank and office space. The building is on the boundary line of the Goldsworthy’s property. There are 10 trees on the property, some of which overhang the block next door. They include a regionally significant magnolia grandiflora, which is believed to be about 90

years old. VCAT member Katherine Paterson handed down her decision on August 27, allowing a planning permit to be issued for the development of the bank, but with varied conditions. The bank will have to submit new plans to the council before development can begin. The Goldsworthys say the decision by Ms Paterson was a ‘‘win’’ for residents. ‘‘We’ll be watching the progress of the development including the approval process of the new plans and construction of the building closely to ensure all permit conditions are properly complied with. ‘‘I think some over-shadowing will still occur, but we’re not going to have a massive wall in front of our faces. ‘‘We’ve always said we’re not against the development. This is a way for it to go ahead and keep the heritage aspects of Romsey as well as all our trees. ‘‘What’s critical is that the conditions are followed through by the council and the bank.’’ Bank chairman Tim McCarthy said it had the support of most of the community. ‘‘We’re disappointed with the member’s decision . It seems unjust.’’ Mr McCarthy said the bank had not ruled out an appeal.

TWO sports complexes will be built in Gisborne and New Gisborne after Macedon Ranges Council approved the proposals at its meeting last week. The council agreed to develop an indoor basketball stadium at the Gisborne Secondary College site or nearby pine plantation and approved plans for an outdoor netball complex in New Gisborne, on the corner of Hamilton and Barringo roads. The Weekly outlined plans for the two separate sports centres on August 21. The basketball and netball communities are celebrating following the council’s support. The Gisborne stadium will include two indoor sports courts with change rooms, cafe, meeting rooms and sealed parking with lighting. It will become home to Gisborne Bulldogs Basketball Club. The council has allocated $1.5 million to the Gisborne indoor stadium, with the state government contributing $3.5million. The council will sign the ‘joint-use’ agreement before construction starts. The netball complex will include eight outdoor courts, a change room, toilets, kiosk and first-aid facil-

ities. Gisborne Netball Association president Carmen Hemphill said she was thrilled work would soon begin on a master plan for the site. ‘‘We’ve had nowhere to call our home for 30 years, nowhere to display our memorabilia. ‘‘The two big things for us is that we [will have] a place to call our home and potential for growth and we’re getting both and we’re thrilled.’’ Gisborne Bulldogs Basketball Club president Natalie Coakley said the club was excited to move forward with the agreement. ‘‘We’ve agreed to move ahead in-principle. For us, it’s making the design fit basketball standards as well as an acceptable user agreement. As long as all user groups and community needs are met, we’re excited to move forward.’’ The council’s 2006 leisure plan identified a high priority need for a feasibility study into an indoor sports centre in Gisborne. The study was approved by the council in 2009. It took one year before planning began for the indoor centre, which will be developed in partnership with Gisborne Secondary College.


Agency to manage social housing SOCIAL housing stock in Macedon Ranges will be managed by Community Housing Victoria Limited. At a council meeting last week, it was announced that a registered housing authority would take control of the council’s 32 social housing properties. In June, the council decided to transfer some of its properties to a housing association that would be able to attract funding, if there was no opposition from residents. One submission was received. As of June 30, there were 111 people on the council’s waiting list for social housing. Macedon Ranges is the only Victorian council that operates a large social housing program without the support of a registered housing association. Only registered housing authorities can receive state government funding to increase and maintain housing stock. Cr Roger Jukes, who was involved in the tender process, said he was confident the new

agency would look after the interests of tenants. ‘‘Community Housing Victoria [a not-forprofit company] will establish a local Macedon Ranges office and build three new housing units in the shire in the first two years,’’ he said. ‘‘They also have a commitment to work with local community agencies, which will help the transition process.’’ Under the transfer, all tenants will continue to be provided with housing. The 32 properties are in Kyneton, Woodend, Gisborne, Romsey and Macedon. They provide low-cost housing to families, young people and those living with a disability. ‘‘There is a high level of satisfaction among tenants of social housing that is managed by a registered agency,’’ Cr Jukes said. ‘‘Tenants will not be financially disadvantaged by this change and will receive the same, if not better, support than they do now.’’ The council has 110 social housing units, which are valued at more than $13 million. The council’s 49 senior citizens’ housing units are not part of the transfer.

Gisborne Secondary College students Nick, John and Jordan now have a better understanding of the Shakespeare classic Romeo and Juliet. College teacher Chau Pham said students were learning about the classic as part of their English lessons and had taken part in practical workshops ahead of their exams. ‘‘We ran the workshops ourselves and then after lunch we had a performance by the Flying Bookworm Theatre Company. The students loved it — we’ve had a really positive response and overwhelming support.’’

Willing and Able Whether born with a disability or acquiring one, hundreds of Melburnians are sharing the national obsesssion with sport. And playing all the games we associate with able-bodied athletes is an option being increasingly taken up in the city’s north- west, as Tara Murray reports.

R

OXBURGH Park’s Naz Erdim feared for his future after a diving accident left him a quadriplegic. The thought of not ever playing sport again was the least of the then- 20-yearold’s concerns. ‘‘I wasn’t really sure and didn’t know what to expect. While I was in rehab they told me about different sports I could still play. ‘‘They told me about wheelchair rugby. Once I’d watched it, I really loved how they crashed and bashed on the court and were really good friends off the court. ‘‘Most people are confused when they first see wheelchair rugby. They picture us on a rugby paddock. We play on a basketball court and it looks quiet dangerous.’’ Move forward 20 years and Erdim is competing in his fourth Paralympics in London. ‘‘It feels pretty good and it’s really special and we are looking forward to it, ’’he said before leaving. ‘‘We won silver in Sydney and Beijing and we’re pretty confident of going well in London.’’ As Erdim takes to the court in London, it’s also an opportunity to look at what sports are available for both physically and intellectually disabled people. For most it’s not about competing at the top level; it’s about having the opportunities in the first place. ‘‘A lot of the desire for sports is driven by the parents,’’ says Wyndham’s Access All Abilities community development officer, Wayne Slattery. ‘‘They will contact the YMCA or the council saying my child wants to play a particular sport. We then try and organise something.’’

The Australian Paralympic Committee’s manager of development and pathways, Tim Matthews, says his team also looks to include disabled sports people in mainstream sport. ‘‘We aim to include our athletes in mainstream sports where we can but you can’t always make it happen. ‘‘Our goal is to include people with a disability in the core business of sport. Segregating them, all it does is make it an issue in many cases ... there needs to be more work to include people with disabilities in sporting clubs.’’ The Macedon Basketball Association has been able to do that with its Access All Abilities’ group, in which 50 people are registered. While they may not play an actual competition, they still enjoy games and play a role on the association’s grand final day. ‘‘We didn’t realise there was a need for a program like this until we were approached in 2008,’’ says Michael Grantham, who’s in charge of the program. ‘‘We ran a trial program in 2009 and the participants enjoyed it so much that we incorporated it in our regular basketball program.

‘‘The youngest person is 10 and the eldest 74 and there’s all ages in between. ‘‘Each week they have a skills session, followed by a half-court game.’’ Tennis Victoria has 24 clubs, with programs for people with disabilities, including wheelchair tennis. South Gisborne Tennis Club is the only club in Melbourne’s north-west to have such a program. ‘‘We’ve been running it for 12 years,’’ says coach Gail Scott. ‘‘We have the Sunbury Macedon Specialist School come down and Distinctive Options from Sunbury [provider of disability support and training programs] has sessions every week. ‘‘We’re looking at expanding it more. We would eventually like to run a competition.’’ Scott says funding given to them earlier this year means they’ll be able to cater for more people in wheelchairs. ‘‘We now have to carry them onto the court. We are just waiting for the right weather to install ramps and bigger doors so they’ll be able to play on our hard courts.’’ Western Australian-based Cricket Champs is another program looking to set up something similar, with the chance for kids to move into mainstream teams. Now with clubs in WA and New South Wales, Cricket Champs wants to expand into Victoria. ‘‘There’s very limited opportunities for kids with disabilities to play sport,’’ says Justin Sambell ‘‘Many parents are reluctant to enrol their kids in sport. Programs like this give them a chance to start playing sport then move into mainstream sport, which they mightn’t have thought was possible.’’ While there is a focus on trying to get disabled people into mainstream sports clubs, there are still many sports groups focusing just on people with disabilities. The Special Olympics has started a Community Sports Link program, designed for special schools and disability service providers to get people involved in weekly sports training.

‘‘Part of my role is to facilitate this program and others north-west of Melbourne. This term, I’ve got eight schools I’m working on with soccer,’’ says Lessey Hodgkinson, who runs the program in Melbourne’s north-west ‘‘We try to get them into the routine of training once a week, try and get them into a competition with a Special Olympics feel about it.’’ It’s through the Special Olympics program that Helping Hoops has started running free basketball training sessions for intellectuality disabled children. Having already established programs for disadvantaged youth, founder Adam McKay said they were asked to look at running skills sessions for intellectually disabled children. They recently moved their north-west program from Footscray to Broadmeadows. Sunbury Jets basketball coach Mike Spears is one of the coaches in the program. ‘‘When I started we had one program and Adam said I had one coaching job for you per week, and now we’re doing four programs, two to three hours a day, ‘‘This area needs it. We used to do it at VU, most of the players were from Ascot Vale and some out of Werribee, but since we���ve been relocated its starting brand new here.’’ Jets player Jay Boyle is also involved in the program and is looking at bringing it out to Sunbury, having already visited the Sunbury Macedon Specialist School.

Melton’s Riding for the Disabled Association is another program based in Melbourne’s north-west. The centre, which attracts people from places including Melton, Sunbury, Gisborne, Point Cook and Bacchus Marsh, caters for both intellectual and physically disabled people. ‘‘There’s very few children that can’t have the opportunity to participate and we cater for a range of disabilities,’’ says head coach and co-ordinator Margaret Behan. ‘‘We modify the equipment and supervision. Some riders may need three volunteers and lots of supervision, where others will be able to ride by themselves eventually.’’

Slattery says Wyndham is one of the better-equipped areas in Melbourne’s north-west with soft tennis ; light exercise groups; aqua aerobics; carpet, lawn and tenpin bowls; netball; basketball; dance; wheelchair darts; jujitsu and swimming all catered for. ‘‘The aim for us is to get them into mainstream sport and sometimes we have to make some modifications or some rule changes to make this happen. ‘‘We mentor the coaches and provide them with advice on how to work with the children who need more attention.’’ Slattery says wheelchair basketball adds another element to the opportunities available. ‘‘Just say a teenager [in a wheelchair] is playing; his family can compete, too. They get in the wheelchair and it becomes a family thing ‘‘Over half of the people in our sessions are able-bodied.’’

Fleeing-children’s story a runaway winner Cannes opener is a gloriously wild romp, writes Stephen A Russell es Anderson, the king of kook responsible for quirky classics The Royal Tenenbaums and Fantastic Mr Fox, returns with the sepia-hued Moonrise Kingdom. It’s a seemingly simple tale of two 12-year-old boy-meets-girl runaways, but nothing is quite so straightforward. This year’s Cannes opener is a gloriously wild romp set on the fantastically realised island of New Penzance in 1965, where normality is extreme and there’s a storm a’coming, too. Beautiful young actress Kara Hayward plays Suzy Bishop, a troubled kid daubed in shocking turquoise eyeliner with a devastating pout to match. Smothered at home by her trio of brothers and simultaneously overbearing and oddly absent parents (played in understated comic fashion by Bill Murray and Frances McDormand), Suzy plans her escape with kindred spirit Sam. Sam (Jared Gilman) is an orphan and refugee from a somewhat twisted Scout camp run by the smoking do-gooder Scout Master Ward (Edward Norton in fine form).

MOONRISE KINGDOM (PG) Stars: Kara Hayward, Jared Gilman, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Bruce Willis Director: Wes Anderson

When they flee, full of youthful ambition, hopeful dreams and unusually adult cynicism, they spark a huge manhunt of odd characters including the harsh Social Services – a character

played with swishing-cape action by a gleefully evil Tilda Swinton – and the violent Scouts who so tormented Sam. Bruce Willis does his best work in quite some time as the island’s cop, Captain Sharp, and his story deftly mirrors that of young Sam, whom he soon takes under his wing. Even a begrudging cynic should raise a smile at this good-humoured yarn. Infused with a fairytale sense of yesteryear, punctuated on occasion with comically exaggerated violence, Anderson delivers lush visuals and off-the-wall humour from all his players. The fantastic cast works wonders with what are sometimes small roles, but it’s the young leads who truly captivate and show immense promise. Whether it’s Suzy causing chaos with a pair of scissors or Sam preparing for their first night camping out together, casually alerting her to the fact he might wet the bed, they hold the viewer in thrall.

When only the very best advice will do et’s face it, most pharmacies can be much the same. But not this one, say the two owners of Priceline in Gisborne. Both are pharmacists, and one a naturopath who offers on-site services to clients . One of the proprietors, Michael Alexander, says the pharmacy is unique as it combines both the knowledge of western medicine and natural medicine. ‘‘We sell a variety of medicines and natural products and therapies— many that other pharmacies don’t stock,’’ says Michael. Another standout feature of the pharmacy is its ‘compounding’ ability — making medicines in an on-site lab. ‘‘We tailor-make products, including discontinued medicines, creams, capsules and lotions which may not be commercially available anymore,’’ he adds. ‘‘We also make medicines for vets to use.’’ The pharmacy is celebrating its third birthday as a Priceline franchise, it was once an independent business and owned solely by coowner Anand Raju. The dedicated team of professionals has been helping Gisborne residents with their health

needs for the past 25 years. ‘‘We always have two pharmacists, myself and Anand, available on weekdays from 9am-6pm so patients have access to professional advice. ‘‘And all our staff are Guild-trained and accredited so patients can be confident that they are getting the best care,’’ Michael says. Priceline Pharmacy Gisborne stocks a range of products for beauty, health and wellbeing including skin and foot care, cosmetics, fragrances, vitamins, and mother and baby products. It also provides income protection and life insurance. The pharmacy has a rewards program using the Priceline club card which entitles members to a range of discounts and specials.

Be your best Quick and stress-free CT scans maximise health S

unbury businessman Brett Stockdale was at first dismayed to learn that a pre-existing medical condition had resurfaced, but says early diagnosis and treatment improved his outlook for a full recovery. A regular health check revealed that Brett needed a CT scan. Resident radiologist at Lake Imaging Sunbury Dr Helen Vandenbroeck says the close working relationship between Brett’s local GP and herself led to a definite identification of the problem and muchneeded early intervention. “An appointment in Sunbury was made the same week that Brett visited his GP who received the scan results within 24 hours,” she says. “His GP immediately discussed the findings with us, and arranged a second scan a few days later that confirmed the diagnosis and need for treatment.” Brett wants other residents to know the importance of regular health checks, especially for people with prior serious illnesses and those in health-risk categories.

“My previous experiences with CT scans over many years were not exactly fun, so I was pleasantly surprised to find how much modern scanners have improved, and that the facilities in my own neighbourhood were better than I had seen in Melbourne,” he says. “My latest scans were very quick and stress free. I didn’t have to travel to Melbourne or wait a long time for appointments as I had done previously, and this made it much easier for my family who naturally want to be close at times like this.” Dr Vandenbroeck says Lake Imaging has a policy of providing the latest radiology equipment and the specialists to operate them in all regional centres. “In Sunbury our equipment includes a state-ofthe-art GE Lightspeed VCT for 3D scans of arteries, the brain, lungs, kidneys, other vital organs, skeletal structure and teeth. ‘‘Most patients are bulk billed for these services” she said.

OWN YOUR OWN

Sooner or later most people consider the purchase of a home as opposed to renting. However, there are those that simply have no desire of home ownership due to the life styles they have or for the simple fact that home ownership just does not appeal to them. In Australia, home ownership is a prevailing line of thought for most people. The purchase of a home that one can afford allows the build up of equity by the payment of the monthly mortgage and the appreciation of the home’s value over time. Equity in a home is the actual value of the home above the amount due on the mortgage. Typical homeowners end up upgrading the type of the home they have over the years as their needs change. For example, many first time homeowners acquire a home unit and then sell it if they get married and start raising a family, have the need for more space or a location nearer to better schools. Owning your own home or some other property and maintaining them or improving them gives the property owner a sense of accomplishment and pride of ownership. Additionally, the appreciation over time of real property and the build up of equity in a parcel can provide benefits for one when they retire and no longer are working on a day to day basis. The biggest advantage of home ownership is a sense of stability for the property owner and his or her family. If you would like to discuss this, or any other real estate matter, feel free to call me, John Dunlop on 9744 2555 or call into our friendly office at Sunbury and Gisborne to talk to me.

And it’s in Riddells Creek which, to my mind, is a great spot for enjoying a country lifestyle, being on the cusp of all the Macedon Ranges has to offer. It’s the front unit of a block of five, with entry at the side behind a high fence with horizontal slats, which gives the place a nice feeling of privacy. Latte-toned porcelain floor tiles set out an appealing welcome in the entry hall, as do the glass sliders showing off the first of two court-

I

yards, this one paved and surrounded by pebbles and garden beds. Around to the right, the tiled lounge-dining area is a good size, elegantly fitted out with classy window furnishings and shallow, bowl-shaped leadlight lightfittings. The area opens to the second courtyard, a private space for relaxing with friends. The kitchen has a light-bouncing white and cream colour palette, slim-line blinds, benches topped with stone-look laminate, a two-door pantry, and an underbench oven, gas cooktop and dishwasher wearing the Bosch label. A hallway (with courtyard access) heads left of

entry to a powder room, a gleaming main bathroom with heat lamp, a laundry with garage access, and three bedrooms — two with built-in wardrobes. The good-sized main bedroom has courtyard views, a walk-in wardrobe and en suite with heat lamp and mosaic feature tiles in the shower. The back of the unit is defined by a narrow, paved walkway, while the front garden is finished with a combination of mulch, pebbles and boxed garden beds. The property has a double garage with remote-control and is a walk away from shops and station.

SPRAINS & STRAINS

Silent no more on mental health nce far more hidden in society, the area of mental health now receives lots of attention and chances are you or a loved one suffers from anxiety, depression, bi-polar or another mental health issue. Susanna Warner of Family Medical Centre in Sunbury can assist people facing these challenges, taking a sensitive approach to mental health treatment. ‘‘I seek to normalise the experience of going through a mental health challenge and work with individuals to improve their situation, to cope, and work towards recovery,’’ Susanna says. ‘‘As a nurse with many years’ experience, I give physical, social, emotional, spiritual and mental health support.’’ She began work at the centre in 2010, seeing patients who have a GP chronic disease management plan in place, and taking private appointments. ‘‘I provide education and assistance with finding appropriate referrals, counselling and practical strategies, including mindfulness breathing and relaxation, and non-directive pregnancy support.� Paediatric speech pathologist Fiona Tremlett also works at the centre to help kids in an equally important area, providing speech

pathology services for children 15 months old to school-entry age. ‘‘I have more than 25 years of experience with preschool-aged children who have difficulty communicating, especially those under three,’’ Fiona says. Her ongoing professional development includes being an accredited presenter for several Hanen programs and training for the Lidcombe program for early stuttering intervention. ‘‘I provide individual assessments, consultations and therapy sessions with written reports available upon request,’’ Fiona says. Both women work alongside qualified doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and psychologists at the clinic to provide patients with the best possible care. Family Medical Centre has been supporting locals for 27 years, providing high-quality medical care for individuals and families. The clinic’s comprehensive website has a list of patient resources and links to sites for specific conditions and healthcare information.

RUNNING INJURIES

Long distance running and recreational road races are increasingly gaining popularity in the community. Their linkage to charitable fundraising, memorial events and weight loss programs has led to an explosion in the number of road races that are held in towns of all sizes. As the Melbourne marathon festival awaits in midOctober many of us will be on the street or at the gym gradually increasing the total mileage and the frequency of training this month. Not surprisingly, the number of running related injuries is expected to rise. The most common injuries are those of the knee, followed by Achilles tendon and calf injuries, as well as stress fractures, foot injuries, hip, pelvis and lower back injuries. Running injuries can be classified as overuse injuries, which are typically caused by repetitive action as opposed to acute injuries which occur in an instant (e.g. sprained ankle). Repeated movements or awkward postures may result in minor injuries. When injuries happen over and over, the body’s healing process will not be able to catch up to the injuries. Physiotherapy should be considered as a starting point for anyone who is suffering from running related injuries. Physiotherapists at Sunbury Physiotherapy Clinic are highly trained in the comprehensive management, from treatment of the immediate injuries, to return to sport and prevention of re-injury. It is important to address predisposing factors for the injury. Several factors have been associated with injury in runners, including age, body weight, body alignment, previous running experience, shoes, running terrain, and even psychological factors. Physiotherapists will evaluate these factors and help guide an individualised treatment plan for the runner which can include counselling the runner on more effective training and providing specific rehabilitation guidelines.

Mental health nurse Susanna Warner of Family Medical Centre supports Sunbury residents.

Drawing on life’s challenges Levent Efe depicts how ethnic communities relate to Australia, writes Rebecca Miller llustration training and expressing himself through drawings is what led Levent Efe to be a medical illustrator and cartoonist. ‘‘I did a post-doctoral degree in medical illustration while overseas and that is my day job,’’ he says. ‘‘Freelance cartooning has always been a healthy distraction, where I can express myself using the same illustration skills.’’ From an early age, Turkish-born Levent knew he wanted to use his creative talents to send subliminal messages to society. ‘‘As a child I dreamt of channelling my creative talent to fine arts, but discovered that figurative work and didactic storytelling is what I do best.’’ ‘‘My major mentor has been the late Oguz Aral, who single-handedly

Cartoonist Levent Efe nurtured an entire generation of cartoonists in Turkey in the 70s.’’ Levent focuses his cartooning on giving a voice to people who’ve migrated to Australia, just as he did when he was 30. ‘‘My cartoons mostly appear in

Australian ethnic media, particularly those published in Turkish. I try to show the problems ethnic community members face through integration.’’ His cartoons have appeared in mainstream newspapers, the Turkish Report Weekly newspaper and online blog, Ayorum. ‘‘Being able to get readers to think outside the square and giving them a good belly laugh is the best reward for a cartoonist.’’ ‘‘Life is multifaceted and there are lots of ways to interpret the world. Humour is the most creative one. Unique angles on life keeps me going.’’ He says his next career step is to create a perfect medium for online. ‘‘Media is going through enormous changes and us creative folk have to adapt to ensure our craft isn’t lost.’’

Big on style, safety and economy Ewan Kennedy and Derek Ogden road test the Hyundai i30 esigned for the European market at Hyundai’s Technical Centre in Russelsheim, Germany, the new i30 takes on the South Korean company’s ‘fluid sculpture’ style which, it says, is inspired by nature and modern architecture. More practically, it gives the vehicle a slippery coefficient of friction of Cd 0.30, a cornerstone of fuel economy. Hyundai i30 gets straight to the point in the styling stakes, with Hyundai’s signature hexagonal radiator grille (chrome in the Premium test car we sampled), flanked by the latest design HID xenon headlamps. Sleek lines, offset by sculpted wheel arches housing 17-inch alloy wheels, continue down the side of the vehicle, ending in a rear that emphasises the vehicle’s wide stance. The roof in the i30 Premium incorporates a two-piece panoramic sunroof, the light from which adds a feeling of space inside the cabin. A spoiler is positioned where the roof meets the rear window. The Hyundai i30, which comes in Active, Elite

D

and Premium variants, has been recognised as ‘‘one of the safest in the small-car category’’ by the Australasian New Car Assessment Program. With room for five people, the Premium i30’s cabin lives up to the model moniker with a modern mix of quality hard and soft surfaces. Instruments are made easy to read with sportsstyle layout and blue back lighting. The four-spoke steering wheel incorporates a variety of controls, including cruise control, audio and air-con. The 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine has been updated to produce 10.6 per cent more power (94 kW) over the previous i30 and 3.4 per cent reduction in combined highway/urban fuel consumption At motorway speeds, the test i30 CRDi had fuel consumption of 5.2 litres per 100km, increasing to about eight litres per 100km in hard stop-start traffic motoring. The Hyundai i30 Premium 1.6 turbo-diesel six-speed automatic sells for $32,590, plus onroads.

Efficiency, Volkswagen’s extreme fuel savers have numerous technical devices to trim carbon emissions and at the same time reduce their fuel usage. Stop-Start systems turn off the engine when it’s not required and fire it up again when needed. Fuel Cutout stops fuel going into the engine when it’s not needed. Brake Energy Recuperation charges the car’s battery when the brakes are used or the car is running downhill. Gear Recommendation suggests the correct gear to the driver from

moment to moment for best efficiency. Coasting is the most interesting of the new Volkswagen fuel saving systems. Intelligent Thermal Management cuts engine cooling to a minimum until the powerplant has reached its correct operation temperature. The greatest fuel saving method of all is quite simply the person behind the steering wheel. Correct driving can easily trim fuel usage by 10 per cent. — Ewan Kennedy

Crossover adds appeal Ewan Kennedy reviews the Mitsubishi ASX n an interesting move, Mitsubishi has given its ASX crossover vehicle a softer look that it says will appeal to hatchback buyers more so than those on the hunt for an SUV. However, the ASX still has the large grille look and seems sure to remain a major player in the small SUV market in Australia, the fastest growing of all areas in the sales race. Modifications to the shape include new bumpers front and rear as well as changes to the foglight surrounds and a revised shape to the so-called jetfighter grille. Even more appealingly, the importer has used

the rising value of the Aussie dollar to trim prices and at the same time increase equipment levels. The range now starts at just $25,990 (plus on roads) for the Mitsubishi ASX with a five-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive. That’s a mouth-watering tag for a vehicle with Japanese build quality and out-of-the-ordinary styling. Inside, there are chromed accents and a newdesign steering wheel with easier to use controls. Safety features across the entire ASX range include ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, stability and traction control and front, side, curtain and driver’s knee airbags. Mechanical upgrades see fuel consumption and carbon output cut by about 3 to 5 per cent. The diesel engine is now best-in-class for official fuel efficiency, at 5.7 litres per 100 kilometres. The petrol unit runs at 7.7 litres per hundred kilometres on the combined cycle. The Mitsubishi ASX (for Active Sports Crossover) is either a compact SUV or a crossover depending on its mechanical specifications. When it comes with 2WD, it’s a hatchback with

Mercedes-Benz B-Class Ewan Kennedy’s used car checkout he Mercedes B-Class is an exceptionally practical vehicle built on a stretched version of the Mercedes A-Class platform. The release of an all-new model in March 2012 has generated added interest to those on the used-car market. A taller than average five-door hatchback, the B-Class has a huge amount of interior space, with almost as much legroom in the rear as in the big S-Class Mercedes. The B-Class’s front seats are large, well shaped and provide good support. There’s plenty of space for two big Aussie males in the rear and three children will have stretch-out room. The boot is bigger and more usable than that of many much larger cars. Not only is it huge, the luggage area is versatile and you can even create an almost van-like interior by removing every seat but the driver’s. The removable seats are an extra-cost option so may not be fitted to the one you’re examining. We wouldn’t go as far as to call the B-Class a ‘sports tourer’, but it does have a reasonably sleek style in its class.

T

WHAT TO LOOK FOR A correctly driven and maintained Mercedes B-Class is unlikely to have any faults, but it’s still best to have one inspected by a senior engineer at your motoring club. Take a good walk around the car checking for signs of damage to the bumper corners, the wheel rims (the front left is the one that generally suffers at the hands of poor parkers), and the door panels at their widest sections. If you find what appears to have been major repairs to the body either pass it up altogether or book it in for an after-crash inspection at a reputable panel repairer. Check the interior, particularly the rear seats and the boot for evidence of harsh use. HOW MUCH? Expect to pay from $12,000 to $17,000 for a 2005 Mercedes-Benz B200; $14,000 to $20,000 for a 2006 B180 CDI; $15,000 to $23,000 for a 2006 B200 Turbo; $21,000 to $30,000 for a 2010 B180; $25,000 to $33,000 for a 2010 B200, and $31,000 to $42,000 for a 2011 B200 Turbo.

Immensely practical: Above, the 2008 Mercedes-Benz B-Class. At left, the 2006 Mercedes-Benz B-Class.

CAR BUYING TIP: Cars with prestigious badges can be driven just as badly as those from the lowliest on the image stakes. Don’t fall for the fancy badge; have it fully inspected.

Redbacks blitz destroys Blues BY TEO PELLIZZERI MATT Davidson booted 14 majors as Romsey eliminated Melton Central and dispelled any concerns that its premiership defence was petering out in Riddell District Football League. The Redbacks kicked 10 goals to one in an awesome first-quarter display on the way to beating Melton Central by 86 points in the first elimination final at Romsey Park, 24.14 (158) to 11.6 (72). At Boardman Reserve, Riddell ensured its season would continue for at least another week as it beat Macedon by 13 points in the second elimination final. The Redbacks were rolled by Melton Central two weeks prior but went about making amends in stunning fashion as they booted 10 goals to one and led by 54 points at the first change. The Blues battled back into the match with six goals to three in the second term but Romsey doused any hopes of a second-half comeback by extending the margin to 59 points at the final change. Davidson, who raised his ton in the final round of the home-and-away season, was in imperious form with 14

goals in a dominant display. Mitchell Brewer and reigning Bowen medallist Shannon Green also stepped up the intensity for finals while youngster Jake Lever was also in the best. Central made finals in a promising first campaign under coach Brian Wheelahan and fought out the match with Adam Fenton booting five goals and Chris Lock best against the Romsey onslaught. Romsey advances to this Saturday’s second semi-final against Sunbury Kangaroos, to be played at Kyneton Showgrounds. At Sunbury, Riddell Bombers also gained the upper hand in the first quarter and held it until the finish in a 13-point win against Macedon. The Bombers booted six goals to two in the opening term on the way to winning 14.7 (91) to 12.6 (78). Haydn Ross and Ben Sonogan booted three goals each for the Bombers while Addam Cusworth was Macedon’s leading goalkicker with three. The Bombers will now play a home first semi-final on Sunday against losing qualifying finalist Diggers Rest. Go to macedonrangesweekly.com .au for more action shots from the RDFL elimination finals

The Cats moved a step closer to returning to the grand final with the 53-39 win to advance to this weekend’s second semi-final against reigning premier Romsey. Centrals will have to go the long way though, bumped into a first semi-final against Riddell after the Bombers eliminated Broadford 46-35 on Sunday. Romsey eliminated Wallan to keep its premiership defence alive, winning 40-21 at Romsey Park. The Redbacks and Cats will now square off for a grand final berth in a rematch of last year’s decider. In B grade, Macedon remains on track for backto-back titles in the division after a one-goal win against Romsey, 29-28. The Cats now face Sunbury Kangaroos in the second semi-final after the Roos defeated Wallan 27-24.

Chargers knock out lacklustre Cannons BY TEO PELLIZZERI CALDER Cannons may be hoping for a bumper crop of draftees this season but there will be no team success after a 28-point loss to Oakleigh Chargers on Sunday. The Chargers kept the Cannons at arm’s length at Princes Park in Carlton in the TAC Cup elimination final to win 18.12 (120) to 13.14 (92). For Calder, a perennial contender in the competition, the eighth-placed finish and elimination final exit brings one of its earliest closes to a season in recent times. Oakleigh stamped its authority on the match early by kicking seven goals to four, before Calder closed the gap to just four points at the long break. When Liam McBean kicked his fourth goal of the match early in the fourth quarter, Calder hit the front, followed by a Joe Daniher goal to make the margin nine points in Cannons’ favour. But the surge would be the Cannons’ best and last attempt to seize control of the game as Oakleigh booted the next four goals unanswered to lead by 20 points at the final change. The Chargers kept the momentum going at the start of the last quarter to take the lead out to 40 points before Calder reduced the margin late with the last two goals of the game. McBean finished with four goals for the match while Xavier Allison booted three for the Cannons and Daniher two. Elimination final — Oakleigh Chargers 18.12 (120) d Calder Cannons 13.14 (92) GOALS — Oakleigh: J. Billings 4, J. MacRae 3, D. Heath, W. Maginness 2, E. Walmsley, T. Gladman, J. Kennedy-Harris, J.

Roos hop to semi-final after foiling Burras BY TEO PELLIZZERI SUNBURY Kangaroos overcame a third-quarter deficit to beat Diggers Rest by 14 points in the Riddell District Football League qualifying final on Saturday. The Burras were gaining the upper hand at Kilmore in the third term when the margin stretched to 20 points, but the Kangaroos rallied to come back and win 8.15 (63) to 7.7 (49). Sunbury advances to the second semi-final against Romsey this weekend while Diggers Rest must play Riddell Bombers in the first elimination final. Both teams left the field goalless at the first break before Diggers Rest wrestled the advantage with two goals to one in the second term. The Burras continued to extend the lead in the third quarter only for a late rally from Sunbury to close the margin to three points at the final change. ‘‘In the middle of the year we would have dropped our heads,’’ Kangaroos co-coach Chris Meacham said. ‘‘But with the belief we’ve got we just kept coming and coming. ‘‘From a spectator point of view it [the first

quarter] would have looked scrappy but the ball just wasn’t coming into the forward 50 metres too much.’’ Meacham said switching midfield match-ups to try and play one-on-one rather than tag Diggers Rest players had coincided with the Burras getting the upper hand. But young forward Phillip Kaufmann would bring the Kangaroos back into the contest when he was switched to full forward, booting three goals. Meacham moved himself into the forward pocket and Kaufmann shone as the main forward target, bringing in contested marks and having five shots for goal after the switch. ‘‘I asked at half-time for the players to step up and he [Kaufmann] pretty much announced himself,’’ Meacham said. ‘‘I snapped one in the last, then Ryan Hatty kicked one from the boundary and you could see the heads drop. Normally their [Diggers] back line is up and about.’’ Meacham said after last year’s agonising grand final defeat to Romsey there would be no problems keeping a lid on taking the upper hand in the finals race. ‘‘We know Romsey are coming, we’re focusing on next week,’’ he said. Brent Tuckey booted three goals as Diggers Rest’s only multiple goal-kicker in his day-long duel with Sunbury’s Daniel Gregory. Better players for the Burras were Dylan Hannan, Stuart Clarke and Jeff Heritage. ■ More RDFL results and this weekend’s finals fixture — page 27 Go to sunburyweekly.com.au for more action from the Diggers Rest-Sunbury clash

Sunbury erases jinx at Eastern Oval BY GAV McGRATH ONE monkey is off Sunbury’s back. One still awaits. The eastern Lions surprised arch-rival Redan in Saturday’s Ballarat Football League qualifying final with a nine-goals-to-two first half on the way to an impressive 13.18 (96) to 8.13 (61) victory at Eastern Oval. In the process they ended a minor drought at the venue they will have to play at on grand final day if Sunbury is to vie for its first premiership win since 2004. Sunbury coach Rick Horwood said observers were happy to point out that the eastern Lions had not won at Eastern Oval since 2010, and his team had now taken care of that. “The monkey is off our back. We won at Eastern Oval. We’re not getting too carried away. “The players, they’re happy they’ve had a win but they are already focused on recovery and the week ahead. “It is nice to beat Redan in September but it won’t mean anything next time we play them.” There was plenty of heat in the first eight minutes of the match, as the ball went from end to end. The only shot at goal was a miss to Simon Clarke. But after Scott Lobb kicked the first goal of the match, Sunbury played a brand of football that could yet deliver it that elusive flag. Simon Clarke dominated the air in the forward 50. And anything that wasn’t marked by Clarke or Dale Ciunik was picked off by small forwards Scott Lobb and Matthew Medcraft.

Gang tackle: Sunbury’s Ross Sleight and Greg Hay ambush Redan’s Jarrod Edwards.

At the other end of the ground, Brett Chambers and Allan O’Connor had the better of their own match-ups, while providing support up field as well. In the middle, Pat Cariss was imposing, giving first use of the ball to Jay Cheep and Jamie Lobb. In 15 minutes Sunbury was five goals up. By half-time the margin was 41 points. In contrast, Redan looked flat. The only effective target up forward was Dean Chester, who had 2.4 to half-time. “We got the first clearance. We were first in forward 50 but they got it out of there very easily,” Redan playing coach Brendan Peace explained. “We lacked intensity. Our effort picked up in the last three quarters but there is still room for improvement. ‘‘Full credit to Sunbury, though. They played very well.” The contest after half-time was far more even as Matt Hyden, Brenton Riordan, Grant Bell, Jesse Dundon and Ryan Waight lifted up a gear. Redan even managed to win the last quarter, three goals to one. But the day was Sunbury’s, the eastern Lions now face East Point for a ticket into the grand final. Redan, meanwhile, faces a sudden-death semifinal against North Ballarat City. “You hope it stings us into action,” Peace said. “It’s all or nothing next week with a chance to go out in straight sets. I’d hope the group has a bit more pride than that.” — Ballarat Courier
