strong voice for the people of the Williamstown electorate.” Ms Thomson is disappointed to be losing Kingsville and Seddon to Williamstown but is ready for picking up West Sunshine. “There have been some very important issues I have been committed to in these areas, issues around SkyHigh [a group fighting for a high school in the Seddon, Kingsville, Yarraville area] and the road issues,” she said. “I assume there will be some different issues to address. But my representation in these areas doesn’t stop and it is not going to stop – I have still got a lot of things I will be looking to do.” Both MPs intend to contest the election next year. Across Victoria, seats have been scrapped in Doncaster and Rodney in the state’s north, replaced by new seats in west and north-west growth corridors. More than 1.1 million people – or 30 per cent of Victorian voters – would move to different seats. The proposed state electoral boundaries are available on the EBC’s website at ebc.vic.gov.au. Public feedback about the proposed boundaries can be lodged until July 29. Final boundaries will be published in October and apply at the next state election in November next year.
MASSIVE population growth in the western suburbs has triggered a proposal for sweeping changes to state electoral boundaries. Victoria’s Electoral Boundaries Commission (EBC) last week released proposed new boundaries to help rebalance the number of voters living in each electorate. The electorate of Footscray, currently held by Labor MP Marsha Thomson, has been redrawn to take in an area reaching into Sunshine West. The suburbs of Seddon and Kingsville would move into the neighbouring Williamstown electorate, held by Labor MP Wade Noonan. The first redistribution since 2005 would not affect Footscray and Williamstown’s status as Labor strongholds. Mr Noonan said the proposed boundaries better reflected the communities and issues shared by each area and split fewer suburbs in half than the existing borders. “It appears to more appropriately reflect the suburb groupings. I think there are some benefits to there being one MP for one suburb. The Seaholme part of the electorate would sit within Altona and I think that is a more appropriate alignment.” Mr Noonan said he was already very familiar with some of the key issues in Seddon and Kingsville, such as the need for a new high school and moving freight traffic off residential streets. “I have a very strong understanding about the issues important to the people living in these areas and I feel very comfortable that I will be a very
UNDER the proposed boundary overhaul, changes will be made to the seats of Altona and Tarneit, which are held by Labor MPs Jill Hennessy and Tim Pallas respectively. Altona, the state’s secondlargest seat, will be reduced, losing Williams Landing, Truganina, Laverton North and Hoppers Crossing. Point Cook will remain in the electorate. It will be joined by the new suburb of Point Cook West, which is being built between Hacketts Road and the Princes Freeway. Tarneit will be adjusted to cover the northern half of the Wyndham council area, taking in Truganina, Williams Landing, Laverton North, Tarneit and Hoppers Crossing. Ms Hennessy said she understood the need for changes proposed by Electoral Boundaries Commission, but urged it to ensure they were correct to stop Wyndham residents from being disadvantaged. “My experience is that seat boundaries are never perfect. I certainly hope the [EBC] have got their figures right when it comes to projected growth. “Our communities live the consequences of underestimating population growth on a daily basis.” A new seat will be created in Werribee if changes to boundaries are approved. Monash University lecturer Nick Economou said the redistribution would benefit the Labor party. He said the changes would have a significant impact because they were long overdue.

Kirner lashes out at anti-Gillard boys’ club By Goya Dmytryshchak
VICTORIA’S first and only woman premier, Williamstown resident Joan Kirner is disgusted at the treatment of former prime minister Julia Gillard, and says “men can’t cope with a woman in power”. “I was and am still devastated; one, because, of course, I’ve watched Julia grow from a young woman at university interested in politics to a minister to a deputy to the prime minister and I know how good she is,” Ms Kirner said. “Who else can you think of would have made that hung parliament work and get 500 acts through, and the policies that they contained? “Who else could have got the NDIS [National Disability Insurance Scheme] through, for example?” The Weekly asked Ms Kirner what went wrong – why was Ms Gillard deposed by her own Labor Party colleagues? “Some of the main men in the media, in the Labor Party, Liberal Party, can’t cope with a woman in
power,” Ms Kirner said. “They’ve always been able to cope with a woman being their deputy ... that’s their [rightful] position, in their view. But a woman in power ... “I thought when Carmen Lawrence and I finished [politics] – and we copped a fair bit ... “We we weren’t the only ones. But the treatment of Julia has been disgraceful, and disgusting for that matter.” She said everybody – or nearly everybody – got on with Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. She tells a story about catching a taxi during a study tour in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1994. The driver commented that, earlier, he had had another Australian in the cab. After a brief conversation she deduced the passenger was Kevin Rudd. “‘That’s right,’ he said, ‘And do you know what, he said he was sure he’d be prime minister of Australia’.” Ms Kirner said she did not believe “arch conservative” opposition leader Tony Abbott was a shoe-in for Australia’s next prime minister.
Just not right: Joan Kirner is disappointed Julia Gillard faced some of the same prejudices that she did as premier.

“I’ve loved working with the community and hope I’ve lived up to your expectations.” She acknowledged her speech came at a hard time for Labor, with vicious infighting overshadowing the party’s message. “Even for true Labor believers there are times when it can feel frustrating, or hard work, to come out to support a cause we all believe in deeply, for a party we all love deeply.” Tim Watts is the Labor candidate to contest the Gellibrand seat.

politics and the community. “We have a capable, tough, smart, determined woman [Julia Gillard] as our PM, yet she has been subjected to the most crass, silly, petty, sexist and just plain rude behaviour for years,” she said. “These latest events show us there is a dangerous underbelly still compromising women in Australia, and the feminist cause is as urgent as before.” Ms Roxon warned that people must understand how corrosive sexism is and acknowledge that it sets out to sideline the real issues.
GELLIBRAND MP Nicola Roxon has warned “a dangerous underbelly” of sexism is derailing improvements for women in Australian society. Ms Roxon, 46, is retiring from the safest Labor seat in the country at this year’s election to spend more time with her daughter Rebecca and husband Michael. Delivering her farewell speech to Parliament ahead of the tumultuous leadership change, with Kevin Rudd returned as Prime Minister, Ms Roxon warned much work remains for women to gain equality within

Former PM bids Lalor farewell BY NICK TOSCANO IN a typically graceful address last Wednesday, Julia Gillard looked back on the “absolute privilege” it had been to serve as Lalor’s voice in Canberra for 15 years. Ms Gillard will be home in the coming weeks to say goodbye to the community that returned her at the last election with 65 per cent of the primary vote, a 4 per cent increase. After Kevin Rudd regained party leadership in a caucus vote, an emotional Ms Gillard told how her government had made Australia stronger, smarter and fairer. The 51-year-old listed her proudest reforms, which, as she often said throughout her three years steering the country, had been designed with the needs of Melbourne’s west in mind. Ms Gillard maintained the socially driven policies of Labor struck the right chord in places like Wyndham, home to generational disadvantage
and young families in housing estates. “Look at this part of the world – it’s a growth corridor where people come to make a life for themselves and their families, so government services really matter to them.” She said education funding reforms that passed Parliament on her final day as prime minister were the “defining passion” of her life. DisabilityCare, which launched on Monday, was “something that it took this Labor government to get done and I’m very proud of that”. Ms Gillard urged voters to give Labor another term in office, saying many major policies were ‘‘works in progress’’ and at risk of being cut back if the Coalition took government. Wyndham mayor Heather Marcus described Ms Gillard as a hardworking local member who was warm, funny and compassionate. “I think we can be very proud of what we received while Julia was member for Lalor.’’
Big shoes to fill for the new safe-seat contender Political analysts suggest Labor’s Lalor candidate will be a woman from the party’s Right. Monash University lecturer Nick Economou said the ALP was significantly below its quota of women contesting winnable seats. Katie Hall, a former staffer to retiring Gellibrand MP Nicola Roxon, was also floated as a potential nominee. Ms Hall has since told the Weekly she will not nominate.
“I think whoever follows Julia has the biggest shoes in Australia to fill,” she said. Australian Council of Trade Unions president Ged Kearney, also mentioned as a potential candidate for the seat, has confirmed she will not nominate. The ALP is expected to e stablish a preselection timetable for L alor this week. — Nick Toscano and Laura Little

Ms Kitching is the Victorian branch manager of the Health Services Union and a close ally of Maribyrnong MP Bill Shorten. Labor powerbroker Senator Stephen Conroy could reportedly back another candidate, Peter Khalil, a former policy adviser during Kevin Rudd’s first period as prime minister and now director of corporate affairs at SBS. Mr Khalil could not be reached for comment.
AS the dust settles following Julia Gillard’s shock decision to retire from politics, contenders for her safe seat of Lalor are emerging. Labor sources told the Weekly former Melbourne councillor Kimberley Kitching (pictured) was the front runner. If an election is called earlier than September 14, Labor’s national executive could use its emergency powers to fast-track a candidate for the seat instead of going to a local vote.

Student numbers plummet after TAFE cuts By Benjamin Millar SAVAGE state government cuts to TAFE funding have forced steep drops in enrolments, figures released last week reveal. The Education Department’s 2013 Victorian Training Market Quarterly Report – the first enrolments analysis since the cuts took effect last July – shows 22,000 fewer students are pursuing TAFE training than a year ago. The $1.2 billion in cuts over
four years has devastated the sector, according to Footscray MP Marsha Thomson. Victoria University deputy vicechancellor Professor Anne Jones said VU had expected a drop in TAFE enrolments for this year due to the loss of a number of courses in the wake of last year’s cuts. “We expected and planned a 25 per cent decrease in VET delivery. Our first-quarter figures were still a bit lower than expected, but early
enrolments were slow and did pick up in April.” Professor Jones said the report showed an overall decline in the Victorian TAFE market. However, the university was confident about its future, including plans for a trades academy based at its Sunshine campus. Ms Thomson said the figures showed fewer enrolments in courses the government claimed to be of greatest public and economic importance. “Whatever Premier [Denis] Napthine
and Skills Minister Peter Hall have tried to do with TAFE, it has failed miserably,” she said. “But the tragedy here is that these figures also show that, as we have said all along, the cuts are preventing the most vulnerable from learning a skill to get a job.” But Mr Hall claims the report shows growth in training where skills are most needed. He said training had increased by 14 per cent in health care and
social assistance, by 19 per cent in transport, postal and warehousing and 2 per cent in manufacturingrelated courses compared with the same time last year. “The number of governmentsubsidised enrolments related to specialised or in-shortage occupations rose to 84,600 in the first quarter this year – up 4 per cent on this time last year.” He said the government was investing $1.2 billion a year in vocational training.

little kids that go through it.” One in 100 children, or six a day, are born with heart disease daily in Australia. Eve’s mum, Alex, found out when she was about 32 weeks pregnant that her unborn baby’s heart chambers were bigger on one side. “It was really tough because I hadn’t even given birth and we already knew there was a problem . . . you just stay strong for the child.”
AT just 14, Williamstown’s Eve Alexiadis has endured so much, but her heart is set on helping others. Eve is a HeartKid, the name given to about 2000 babies born with heart defects each year in Australia. “I have a hole in my heart and a leak in my valve,” she said last week. “I had surgery when I was two years old and five years old. I had to have one wire removed last year because I grew too fast, too quickly and I snapped the wire.” Eve’s fund-raising and charity work as a HeartKids ambassador so impressed builders and designers The Canny Group that it commissioned Melbourne street artist Makatron to paint a mural about Eve’s story on the front wall of its Lubelso Concept Home in Spring Road, Malvern. The mural launched a partnership between the group and HeartKids. Eve says the mural shows there are no limitations for HeartKids. “For HeartKids I would say, ‘You will get through it’,” she said. “To non-HeartKids, I would encourage them just to know about the cause as much as they can and put themselves in the shoes of the

Demand outstrips supply at aid services: survey CRIPPLING demand is putting enormous strain on welfare agencies in Melbourne’s inner-west and across Australia. The largest survey of Australia’s community services sector, released on Monday by the Australian Council of Social Service, shows frontline agencies are unable to meet the growing demand for help. The annual Australian community sector survey of more than 500 agencies shows housing availability and affordability remains the greatest unmet need.
Four in five people seeking help from housing and homeless services were wholly reliant on income support payments. “This is extremely alarming and further evidence of the damage being caused by keeping allowance payments such as Newstart as low as $35 a day,” Dr Boyd-Caine said. Other services under significant stress and unable to meet demand include legal services (63 per cent), youth services (52per cent) and domestic violence and sexual assault services (46per cent).
Heavy demand is also putting strain on community-based care, treatment for mental illness and emergency relief. ACOSS deputy CEO Tessa BoydCaine said the housing affordability crisis was having a devastating impact, forcing people on the lowest income deeper into poverty. “Nearly 70 per cent of housing and homeless services themselves reported that they struggled to meet demand, with a 5 per cent increase in the number of people turned away,” she said.

A PARKING war has broken out between residents on Williamstown’s Rifle Range estate after Hobsons Bay council agreed to make one of the 17 cul-de-sacs residents-only parking. O’Connell Mews resident Mark O’Brien said the six homeowners at Gray Court now had their own “beautiful citadel” in a suburb where parking was at a premium. He parks in Gray Court to take a short cut to his home in nearby O’Connell Mews. Mr O’Brien said he couldn’t park in his own street because his wife parked in the garage and there were only four on-street spaces, making it hard to find a spot. “There’s only houses on one side of [Gray] Court so there’s quite enough space for everyone, but unfortunately some of the houses have three cars,” he said. He said there was also a trailer and boat parked in Gray Court. “I’ve been parking there for 17 years and they [the council]

“Our overall findings paint a disturbing picture of a sector under critical pressure, including from chronic underfunding and uncertainty about the funding of services,” Dr Boyd-Caine said. “We need urgent action to address these issues, along with a plan to increase the abysmally low income support allowance payments like Newstart, if we are going to prevent more people falling into poverty and into the arms of our already stretched community services.”

are about to set up residents-only parking signs, which will mean only those six houses are allowed to park their cars there,” Mr O’Brien said. “It’s their own private road. You’re basically giving them access to a private road and private parking, so, of course, when you go to sell your property, prices will go up because everyone will be saying, ‘we’ve got a private road, no one else is allowed to park here’. “You’ve basically got this beautiful citadel within an environment where there’s parking issues and what they are invariably doing is pushing the problem in to other areas.” A Gray Court resident declined to comment, saying he preferred to leave the issue between Mr O’Brien and the council. At last week’s council meeting, mayor Angela Altair told Mr O’Brien the proposed parking alterations had been “initiated by the residents after many complaints and discussion with council officers”. Cr Altair said it would not set a precedent.

HOBSONS Bay’s Maltese community has put the council on notice, saying its population represents nearly half of voters in some wards. The warning comes after the Maltese Association Hobsons Bay was unsuccessful for the sixth consecutive year in its bid to secure car park funding for its Altona East premises in Collins Avenue under this year’s council budget. A big group of association members turned up at last week’s council meeting, leaving in disgust on hearing that car parking would be a priority next year. President Joe Attard said the club had about 500 financial members but only six car parking slots. “What the councillors who raise their hands against us forgot is that the Maltese community in their ward hold 48 per cent of the Maltese voters and those connected to the Maltese. “This is the sixth year that the parking came in front of the

disabled, disadvantaged and those people that took us [volunteers] 21 years to get them out from isolation, if any one of these get hurt in any way or return to isolation.’’ Cherry Lake ward councillor Tony Briffa, also of Maltese
background, successfully moved a budget amendment to revisit the issue mid-term. Cr Briffa’s amendment was to direct the CEO to provide a report to the council about options for providing the association with a car park.
THE state and federal governments are at odds over funding for local councils, including Maribyrnong. Western suburbs Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury said the federal government had cut $74,121 from grants to Maribyrnong council in 2013-14 while spending $55 million on its referendum for constitutional recognition of local government. Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell has written to federal Local Government Minister Anthony Albanese, seeking the return of $13.4 million she says has been lost to the Victorian local government sector. But a spokeswoman for Mr Albanese described the claims as “nonsense”, adding that funding was up from $502.2 million in 2012-13 to $534.6 million in 2013-14. Maribyrnong MP Bill Shorten said Maribyrnong, Brimbank and Moonee Valley councils were also set to share in more than $1.6 million in community infrastructure funding under the latest round of the regional and local community infrastructure program. — Benjamin Millar
It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services. GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year. F•S•A/DPC0018

Refugees to get ‘care they need’ is available for everyone who settles here, no matter how they arrived.” WRHC CEO Lyn Morgain said refugee health nurses and community mental health workers assessed the physical and mental health needs of refugees and asylum seekers. They provided support to access health services including dental, counselling and physiotherapy. “Any additional resources are welcome due to the increase in refugees and asylum seekers in the west,” Ms Morgain said. WRHC is yet to confirm exactly how the funding will be allocated. The initiative follows the launch earlier this year of the refugee health program by West Footscraybased Macedon Ranges and North Western Melbourne Medicare Local, providing more than 100 local general practitioners with training to tackle specific medical issues faced by newly arrived refugees and asylum seekers.
REFUGEE and asylum seeker health in the western suburbs is set to improve following state government funding for a new treatment system. Victorian Health Minister David Davis said ISIS Primary Care and Western Region Health Centre (WRHC) would share in $463,161 in the first year of funding for refugee nursing and allied health services. The funding is part of a statewide, four-year $22.2 million package, which includes a $4 million triage and orientation system that will provide health assessments and immediate referral for necessary treatment for refugees and asylum seekers. Mr Davis said more than 11,000 refugees and asylum seekers had settled in Victoria in the past 12 months – more than double the year before. “Commonwealth support needs to increase to ensure assistance
DOZENS of refugees from across Melbourne’s western suburbs have taken the final step in the journey to becoming Australian citizens. Sixty-five refugees across the west officially became citizens in a ceremony put on by the Western Bulldogs as part of last week’s Refugee Week celebrations. The seventh annual citizenship ceremony at Whitten Oval was a highlight of the Bulldogs’ community calendar. Several of the new citizens had taken part in the Bulldogs’ settlement grants programs supporting newly arrived people to make the west their home. The majority originally came from Burma, but a range of other nationalities was also represented.

Rail noise fears prompt forum
Police step up foot patrols at Highpoint
By Benjamin Millar
CRIME and antisocial behaviour is being targeted these school holidays as police roll out a new patrol team at Maribyrnong’s Highpoint shopping centre. The Highpoint public assistance team will mirror the work of the patrol running in Footscray’s CBD since last year, carrying out regular surveillance both in the shopping centre and surrounding car parks. Additional police will also crack down on shoplifting, motor vehicle and bike offences, deceptions, assaults and public order offences as part of the week-long Operation Take Away. Leading Senior Constable Lee Kendrick said the operation aimed at ensuring a safe, enjoyable shopping experience for people through a highly visible police presence. “Highpoint shopping centre is one of the busiest centres in the state. During the school and public holidays, evidence shows that offences increase, including theft of and from motor vehicles and shoplifting,” he said. The regular foot patrols come on

THE state government’s handling of a rise in noise levels along Footscray’s rail corridor has come into question with residents calling for more transparency in how the issue is tackled. Dissatisfaction with the regional rail link consultation process prompted a recent community forum about the project’s noise impact. Last month, the Weekly reported rail noise will noticeably increase in sections of the Footscray and West Footscray rail corridor, with investigations triggered for part of Raleigh Street, Buckley Street west of Victoria Street and Sunshine Road west of Cala Street. But residents have raised concerns some of the most heavily affected properties aren’t being considered for noise mitigation because they fail to meet the ‘‘noise increase’’ trigger. Western suburbs Greens MP
Colleen Hartland said a recent ‘Know your rights about regional rail link noise’ forum had been spurred by the community being “deeply unsatisfied” with noise policy consultation. In Parliament last week, Ms Hartland called on Planning Minister Matthew Guy to explain why only a handful of homes along the new rail line were eligible for noise management treatments. She sought an explanation about the noise monitoring measures that would be undertaken once the regional rail link was operating. Mr Guy said monitoring would be ongoing once the rail line was operating. “The [transport] department] will be availed of any noise monitoring once the project starts. When the details of the ongoing noise monitoring issues are finalised, residents will know about them and the government will be communicating that to all involved, including the local council.”
Vodka binge ‘led to rampage’
Letter drop to boost fire safety
BY NICK TOSCANO
FIGHTING fire with fire awareness is the focus of a new campaign launched by the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) in Footscray yesterday. The InFlame program will target 50,000 homes across Melbourne this year, focusing on communities affected by significant residential fires. The Australian-first program will deliver fire safety information to residents’ mailboxes in the wake of major fires in their neighbourhood. MFB chief officer Shane Wright said the project was successfully trialled in a 2010 pilot program. About 9000 homes were contacted and a later survey showed 65 per cent of the homes improved their fire safety knowledge and 70 per cent undertook fire safety action. “The program sends targeted information to concerned communities, at a time when locals are most likely to take action in their own homes to protect themselves from fires in the home,” Mr Wright

said. There were 1747 fires involving Melbourne residential properties last year – more than 30 per week – causing an estimated $26.3 million damage. The InFlame mailout will alert the
neighbourhood about nearby fires and outline steps to avoid a similar outbreak. The materials list links to the MFB website to help households with fire safety information.

A MAN who drank three bottles of vodka before starting a fight with a Laverton milk bar owner has been convicted of theft and causing more than $1200 of damage. Jake Graham, 22, of Werribee, trashed the milk bar at Railway Avenue, Laverton on January 14 after paying for a pack of cigarettes with a $50 note and believing he had been given incorrect change. Werribee Magistrates Court heard Graham left the store but began banging on the shop window about 3.15pm. The shop’s manager confronted him and a push-and-shove broke out. Graham followed him back inside, picking up two cardboard display signs and hurling them, then swiping several items off the counter. The court heard Graham smashed
his fist through an acrylic glass barrier protecting a cash register, dislodged the monitor and pushed it onto the ground. He stole three pornographic magazines as he left the store and rode away on a push bike. Police arrested him nearby shortly after, and escorted him to Laverton police station for questioning. The court heard he was “extremely aggressive, noncooperative and made no admissions”. Graham’s defence counsel, who said Graham had drunk three bottles of vodka that morning, described the offending as a matter of “confusion and alcohol mixed together”, and the theft of the magazines as “vigilante justice” because he thought he had been short-changed. Graham was ordered to undergo mental health treatment and alcohol therapy as part of a community corrections order.

Council stands firm on truck ban By Benjamin Millar
MARIBYRNONG council has drawn a line in the sand over the impact of truck traffic on residential roads. The council has restated its call for the state government to impose a truck ban on Somerville Road through Yarraville and night and weekend curfews on Moore Street in Footscray. It also intends to make clear it won’t accept 36.5-metre-long B-double and B-triple high productivity freight vehicles rat-running through the area en route to the Port of Melbourne. The trucks have been approved by the government for the freeway network, but last month the Weekly revealed that Footscray’s Whitehall Street, Yarraville’s Francis Street and Williamstown Road, Laverton North’s Pipe Road and Altona North’s Grieve Parade are all subject to “last-mile” access applications for the trucks.
Mayor Catherine Cumming said she could not see how the oversized trucks could safely negotiate intersections. Council infrastructure and engineering general manager Ian Butterworth said turning trucks would be likely to mount kerbs and drive over nature strips or footpaths. VicRoads acting executive director of policy and programs, Vince Punaro, said “last mile” access for trucks to reach their destination off a freeway or arterial route was considered on a case-by-case basis. Transport operators must obtain approval from either VicRoads or the local council, depending which authority manages the road. ‘‘Applications are assessed according to safety of left- and righthand turns, proximity to residential areas and route impediments such as powerlines and low bridges,’’ Mr Punaro said.

Swervin’ Mervyn There’s a lot going on behind, and slightly north of, Merv Hughes’ trademark moustache and countless kilometres beneath those sometimes wonky knees, writes Robert Fedele
he name Merv Hughes conjures up a kaleidoscope of images. An imposing figure, burly and brash, Hughes was a useful right-arm fast bowler with a finicky run-up that seemed to stretch the length of an Olympic-sized swimming pool. He played in a golden era of Australian cricket and is best remembered as a likeable larrikin, with his handlebar moustache, usually covering a cheeky grin, capturing nearly as much attention as the man himself. When we meet at an Essendon coffee shop on a crisp winter’s morning it’s the first thing that registers. ‘‘I’ve had the mo since 1985,’’ Hughes chuckles. ‘‘Growing up, two of my biggest heroes were Max Walker and Dennis Lillee so I think I was destined to grow a moustache.’’ Hughes has lived in Essendon for two decades and is a regular at the North Essendon Village shopping strip. ‘‘It’s interesting. You’re sort of part of the furniture here, but I find if you go somewhere new it’s a bit of a big deal.’’ Does the limelight annoy him? ‘‘The benefits outweigh the negatives, but there are times when you just want to go and hide somewhere and have a quiet coffee and you get hammered a bit. That’s part and parcel of it. At the end of the day, you can’t really complain if people enjoy what you did.’’ Hughes’ sporting aspirations began in childhood. His father was a school teacher and the family moved around so much his upbringing was akin to a cricket ball being smacked to all corners of the ground. He was born in Euroa, but Apollo Bay, Werribee, Violet Town and Myrtleford were all places young Hughes called home. Werribee resonates with him most strongly. ‘‘Moving around a lot, [Dad] was adamant that you meet people if you play sports.’’ Hughes ate up football, cricket and basketball. But he never dreamed of wearing the baggy green cap. ‘‘As a 16, 17, 18-year-old, all I wanted to do was play footy. Cricket took a backseat.’’ A robust and talented defender, Hughes played for Werribee in the Victorian Football Association (now VFL) and was invited to train with Geelong for a couple of nights, ‘‘but it just didn’t work out’’. It was the late ’70s and a time of upheaval when media mogul Kerry Packer turned cricket
Sign of appreciation: Merv Hughes at the Footscray oval named in his honour.
on its head by dreaming up the renegade World Series Cricket. And there had been a few retirements in the Victorian cricket team, so Hughes was called up to the squad. ‘‘When I got down to Geelong I was playing cricket at Footscray, and the cricket took off a bit,’’ he recalls. Hughes made his Victorian debut in 1981 against South Australia in a one-day match. Four years later the national side beckoned and Hughes quickly became a crowd favourite, with thousands mimicking his customary stretches. It was 1988, a one-day match between Australia and Pakistan at the MCG. Australia had opened the batting and had posted a handy score. Carl Rackemann and Terry Alderman snared early wickets, but rain stopped play with Pakistan in quicksand. The crowd had turned restless, boredom setting in, and Hughes began to limber up. ‘‘I heard a big roar behind me, but every time I looked around there was nothing. So I started the stretching again. There’s a bit of a roar and the same thing. ‘‘I ran and bowled my over and Dean Jones came across to me and said, ‘Do you know what’s going on down there? Every time you do an exercise there’s about 10,000 people behind you doing the same thing’. And you think, well how good’s that?’’ The MCG is full of memorabilia of famous sporting moments and Hughes finds the funny side in the fact there is a photo of him stretching in front of the infamous Bay 13.
“A lot of people remember my career because of that and you think, ‘mate, give me a bit of credit’.” To concentrate only on Hughes the showman would be an injustice to a handy bowler who gave his all. He represented Australia between 1985 and 1994, playing 53 Tests and taking 212 wickets. Former Australian captain Ian Chappell observed Hughes from the commentary box. ‘‘He gave everything he had to try and help his team win,’’ Chappell says. ‘‘Merv is a great example to all budding young fast bowlers ... if you have some skill and give it everything you’ve got, you can succeed.’’ As he tucks into a sandwich, Hughes recollects his career, detailing mateship, mayhem and triumph. When he first got into the national side in December, 1985, the environment, he says, was edgy, cricket still recovering from the turmoil of World Series. He says it took a few years to swing that attitude around, and he credits the change to the influence of Allan Border, coach Bob Simpson, and wide-eyed wicketkeeper Ian Healy. Hughes’ first tour was with the famed 1989 Ashes-recapturing side in England. Australia, pinned as underdogs, took out the six-Test series 4-0. He would return in 1993 for the Ashes, celebrating another victory this time with the cream of Australia’s youth in the likes of Damien Martyn, Shane Warne, Matthew Hayden and Michael Slater. ‘‘In 1989 I was very much a junior player
within the set-up, and four years later you go over as an experienced player and you watch these young blokes come through and you just think: ‘I knew they were good players, but I didn’t think they were gonna be that good’.’’ When his career finally wound down in 1994, he was, he says, physically knackered. He admits he could have looked after his weight more but has seemingly no lasting regrets. ‘‘I loved my food, loved my drink. Ultimately, it probably did cost me.” Following a two-year stint with the Canberra Comets and a couple of years in the Footscray seconds, Hughes kept his hand in the game, helping develop young junior teams at Victorian level and seeing the likes of Cameron White and Peter Siddle come through. In 2005 he became an Australian selector, but was sacked five years later. Nowadays, Hughes’ main gig is as a tour host with Australian Sports Tours, following Australian cricket tours around the world with die-hard fans. Back home he is on the committee at Footscray-Edgewater and speaks fondly of the club where he cut his teeth. He seems genuinely humbled by the fact they chose to name the ground after him. Outside of cricket, his passions revolve around the Western Bulldogs, golf, and fishing. ‘‘My wife Sue constantly tells me there’s a fine line between fishing and sitting in a boat, holding a rod and not catching anything, which is what I tend to do a fair bit,’’ he laughs.

while hungering for the next instalment. Ozon appears to be interested in the uneasy relationship between author and reader, the fuzzy line between inspiration and theft, and the dangers of living vicariously. Certainly, Claude is the most dangerous of authors: one determined to insert himself into his own dramas. His hunger for the conflict required to make his story work is deeply damaging to its unwitting characters. In Claude’s obsessiveness, there are echoes of The Talented Mr Ripley and, in his authorly manipulations, the more recent Ruby Sparks. The tone leans towards the latter, with thriller elements taking a back seat to a winning thread of black comedy. Thankfully, In the House is a far more subtle, clever and compelling film.

French doors open to a porch and covered barbecue area, the lawn, landscaped gardens and a rear shed.

enry Ford was a great believer in abstinence. Maybe that’s why he made driving a Model T such a test of sobriety. Ts may be simple, but they’re not easy. The Model T resulted from Henry and three trusted employees locking themselves away in 1906 to brainstorm building cars better, faster and cheaper. But simplicity of operation was obviously not high on their agenda. And for all of the T’s oddities, you can’t argue with 15 million sales and 19 years of unbroken production. It’s a myth that all Ts were black; early examples were green. Henry went to black when he was shown Japan Black enamel, which could be sprayed and dried in half the time. Late in the car’s life other shades became available that were as fast to apply and dry, and buyers were offered a range of colours. But the vast bulk of Ts were black, and there were so many that at one point half of all the cars in the world wore a Ford
badge – an achievement that has never been equalled. If you’d like a primer on driving a T, go to YouTube and search “How to start a Model T Ford” for an entertaining 16-minute video. And give thanks that you live in the 21st century.

MELBOURNE emerged victorious in the first AFL-sanctioned women’s match, running out 32-point winners over the Western Bulldogs at the MCG on Saturday night. Demons captain Daisy Pearce was named best-on-ground in a 28-disposal performance, made all the more impressive considering quarters were limited to 15 minutes. The first quarter was a tight affair. Melbourne’s Ellie Blackburn wrote her name in the history books with the opening goal, while Kira Phillips got one back for the Bulldogs. Pearce and Bulldogs skipper Aasta O’Connor both impressed early. Melbourne took control in the second term with four goals to none. Chelsea Randall, Alicia Eva, Alex Price and Steph Walding all got goals for the Demons, with Randall seemingly in every contest. There were plenty of contested marks, women putting their bodies on the line as they crashed into packs for marks, and there was no shortage of hardball gets.
Only two goals were kicked in the third term. Steph Chiocci kicked the Bulldogs’ second, after Phillips dished off. Courtney Gum got one back for the Dees on the siren and they led by 25 points at the final break. Phillips cut the lead to 19 with the first goal of the final term, but Louise Wotton and Jasmine Garner goaled for the Demons. Bulldogs coach Peta Searle said the girls would take a lot out of the game despite the loss. “We were very disappointed with the result at the end. We wanted to win, but at the end of the day I think, most importantly, it’s what the girls get out of it and what they take back to their states and clubs,” Searle said. “We had a very young side and for me it was about giving these girls a chance to see what they could do. “The Bulldogs have been fantastic. They haven’t done it because it’s part of their program or job or community charter. “They’ve done it because they’re genuine about women’s footy.”
Cringeworthy loss for Gators

ALTONA Gators could only cringe after a 107-77 loss to Melbourne University Black Angels in the Big V basketball men’s division 1 at the Melbourne University Sports Complex on Saturday night. The Gators were blown out of a water in an embarrassing first half, which rendered the second half as merely junk time. The Gators added some respectability by winning the last quarter, thanks largely to John Wilkinson’s 27 points. Daniel Ellul added 14 and Joey Mausar scored 13. The Gators entertain top side Whittlesea Pacers (16-2) at the Altona Sports Centre on Saturday night. Meanwhile, the Altona Lady Gators started well but lost 84-71 to Mildura Heat in the Big V women’s division 1 at home on Sunday. The Gators raced to an 11-point lead at quarter-time, but the visitors took over in the second period and maintained control. ` Alysha Carden-David was the standout with 19 points and 12 rebounds, while there were double doubles for Jayne-Maree Sant (17 points and 10 rebounds) and Katrina Vogelezang (14 points and 11 rebounds). They host Whittlesea Pacers at the Swamp on Saturday.

Phoenix breathing easier
Seagulls beat league leaders
By Lance Jenkinson
THE 12th round of the Footscray Cycling Club’s winter road season saw riders assemble at the Granite Road hills at Staughtonvale in conditions that could only be described as unusual for the area. With barely a breath of wind and dry, moderate conditions, the A-grade riders set off to complete three laps of the Balliang loop before climbing the Granite Road hills, completing a hotdog turn and heading for one more lap of the loop before crossing the finish line. Jason Costin, 34, had a change of luck after having the second-worst week of any
ALTONA East Phoenix has some breathing space after moving a game clear of the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 2 relegation zone. Phoenix fans were on tenterhooks for most of Saturday’s 1-0 win over Fitzroy City at Paisley Park. A goal on the hour to Paul Galea would end a three-game losing run. Phoenix coach Terry Antoniadis told the Weekly his inexperienced side had been threatening to win in recent games. “We’ve been close against some really good sides the last two or three weeks,” he said. “It was about continuing to apply ourselves the way we had in those games and the wins weren’t too far away.” Galea’s glancing goal from a Matthew Napoli corner was a just reward for their early pressure. “It came at a good time for us,” Antoniadis said. “Five or 10 minutes after that, they had a man sent off, which put us in a really good position. “They had a couple of chances after that, but we felt fairly comfortable. “We got better the longer the game went on.” The two players involved in the Phoenix goal were the standouts. Galea worked hard to create pressure out wide, while Napoli worked hard in the centre of the park. Full-back Frank Proietto marshalled the defence. The Phoenix has endured a horror run with injuries, but the elevated players are providing hope they can stave off the threat of relegation. “We’ve been absolutely ravaged
“There’s certainly a lot of clubs monitoring how Jake’s going this year. “He was probably unlucky not to get drafted last year after having a really good national championships.” The Jets have moved up to fifth on the ladder, still a game and a half outside the top four. They are making a late push for a double chance, showing in the past two weeks they can match it against sides ranked in the top four. The Jets play Gippsland Power at Preston City Oval on Sunday, another side considered a premiership threat. “We’ve been competitive in all our games, which is the most pleasing thing,” Baker said.
WILLIAMSTOWN toppled ladder-leaders Box Hill by 25 points in the Victorian Football League on Sunday. So tight is the competition in the VFL this year, the loss dropped Box Hill from top spot to fourth and bumped the Seagulls from fourth to third. Casey is first, just ahead of Geelong. It was only the fourth time this season Box Hill has played at home, but it was jumped by Williamstown from the outset. The Seagulls dominated with 13 scoring shots in the opening term, kicking 7.6 and taking a 29-point lead into the first break. The Hawks kicked the first two goals of the second term, but once Dylan Addison got his second, a massive score loomed for Williamstown, which slammed home another five goals to increase its lead to 35 points by half-time. The third quarter saw the Seagulls get out to the biggest lead of the day, 47 points by threequarter-time with Addison, Tom Campbell and Brent Prismall all got goals. But the Hawks, missing Jonathon Ceglar, who made his senior debut with Hawthorn and Brendan Whitecross, who returned to the senior side, held the Seagulls scoreless in the final term. But Williamstown’s defensive efforts restricted the Hawks, who could manage only three goals, falling 25 points short. Addison finished with four for Williamstown and Lukas Markovic scored three. Ben Jolley was best on ground, with the likes of Daniel Cross, Brent Prismall, Ed Carr and ruckman Cameron Wood providing plenty for the highlights reel. Football manager Chris Dixon said the seven-goal opening term was key to the win. “It was important that we came out of the blocks travelling to Box Hill,” he said. “Box Hill threw numbers behind the ball later on and it was disappointing that we let our guard down and weren’t able to win all four quarters. But to come to Box Hill and win was a great result. “Ed Carr has taken his game to a new level this year and Prismall is finding form after a layoff with a broken cheekbone. He’s been really impressive.”

with as many as seven or eight firstteam squad members who started the year with us no longer available due to long-term injuries,” Antoniadis said. “I can’t remember ever being involved in a season quite like it. “We’ve been relying on young blokes from the reserves and it’s great for them because they get exposure at
senior level and it’s good for the club to see young kids coming through. “But it has really stretched our playing resources and that’s why wins like this are fantastic for the morale around the club.” For all the FFV results, urn to page 53.
Ellis-powered Jets soar to biggest win of the season WITH talented youngsters Jake Greiser and James Sicily running around for Vic Metro in the under18 national championships on Friday afternoon, the question for the Western Jets was who would step up to fill the void against an equally decimated Eastern Ranges in the TAC Cup on Saturday? Corey Ellis answered the call, re-joining the Jets from Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School on a school football-free week and turning in an eye catching performance to lead his side to a 105-point annihilation of the second-placed Ranges at Box Hill City Oval. Ellis racked up 31 possessions, nine marks and eight tackles in a Greiserlike showing in the midfield to earn
the best-on-ground honours. “He’s a guy we want getting on the end of it because he’s such a good user of the ball,” Jets coach Torin Baker told the Weekly. “At the same time, in the midfield, you need to have a high workrate and good defensive pressure, and he was one of our leading tacklers on the day. “It was a really good all-round game from him.” The Jets came out with all guns blazing to open up a five-goal break at quarter time. They stretched the lead out to 51 points by half-time and the result was beyond doubt when it extended to 72 by the last change. The merciless Jets sought about

improving their percentage and finished with a nine-goals-to-three last term. “We covered the losses of our two key players really well,” Baker said. The Jets spread the load in attack with 13 individual goalkickers. Jake McKenzie booted four, while there were three each to Liam Duggan and Matthew Singleton. McKenzie, brought back to the club under the 19-year-old rule, has changed up his role under Baker after spending his early years as a running defender. “He was more of a defender last year, whereas now we’re playing him as a mid-forward, so we’re hoping he shows his best abilities to clubs,” Baker said.
Back on track, injury-hit Footscray turns off the Power By Lance Jenkinson FOOTSCRAY overcame a lengthy injury list and a form dip to win 23-20 against Power House in the Victorian Rugby Union at Lakeside Drive on Saturday. The Bulldogs had been the in-form side of the Premier 1 competition riding a five-game win streak, but it came to a shuddering halt against the Moorabbin Rams seven days earlier. Bulldogs coach Junior Naufahu read the riot act after watching his side produce some flimsy defence against the Rams and his players responded with greater
determination in a physical affair with Power House. “During the week, ‘Junes’ [Naufahu] had some stern words with a few players,” Bulldogs captain Allan Imo told the Weekly. “Our boys were a bit disappointed and wanted to make amends this week. “It was about defence and just the decision-making of the players. “There were some changes made and it was a bit of a wake-up call to the rest of the team that their positions aren’t as secure as they thought they were.” Top of the to-do list for the Bulldogs was muscling up in the
forward pack. They were left redfaced a game prior as they were steamrolled in that department. Hooker Siosiua Ngauamo, lock Isaac Lilo and flanker Melbourne Lesa made sure the Power House tacklers felt their runs. The Bulldogs were also much better defensively. Their x-factor came in the form of lock Perenise Nikolao, who crossed for two tries and did it in an eyecatching fashion. “He stood out with a few solo efforts,” Imo said. “He still had a bit of work to do with his tries.
Late drama but CYs make their point
“He showed a bit of pace and a bit of strength.” Keisuke Yamada put the finishing touches on the Bulldogs win. The Japan-born scrum half had the golden boot with two conversions and three penalty goals. Yamada, who is studying in Melbourne, is highly rated at the kennel. “We haven’t seen a player of Keisuke’s calibre in that position in years down at Footscray,” Imo said. The Bulldogs, fourth on the ladder, host top side Harlequin in a showdown at Henry Turner Reserve on Saturday.
Spotswood finishes on a high By Lance Jenkinson
IT’S not the way they started, but the way they finished that counted for Spotswood. The Woodsmen was slow out of the blocks before putting Hoppers Crossing to the sword in a secondhalf blitz to run out 68-point winners in the Western Region Football League division 1 at Hogans Road Oval on Saturday. They appeared sluggish in the opening 15 minutes, but the tide turned dramatically when young Warriors ruckman Robert Wittmer went down with a leg injury. Play was halted so the medical staff could attend to Wittmer and not only did the Woodsmen have a chance to re-group mid-quarter, but the Warriors lost a key marking target around the ground. Woodsman player-coach Chris O’Keefe, the main spark in a vintage onball display to go with his four goals, admits the Warriors were on top in the game until the Wittmer injury. “We knew Hoppers were going to come out hard at us and have a real crack, and they did that,” he told the Weekly. “He [Wittmer] was playing really well and they were all over us. “You never wish it upon anyone to be injured, but it just gave us two minutes to re-group and say ‘righto, let’s start winning the contested ball and getting the game back on our terms’ because normally the first opportunity you have to say that is at quarter-time. “We managed to wake up a little bit and get back into the game and after quarter-time. We probably controlled more of the game than they did, especially in the last half

and the last quarter we ran away with it.” With a bulging injury list that includes big-name players Jason Cloke, Tom Langlands, Jai Audley, Chase Morgan, Lachie McGhie, Joel Salmond and Will Phillips, the Woodsmen were crying out for an impact from the younger brigade. Ali Ali, in his first senior game of the season as a half-forward flanker, Will Krithararis, second up on the forward line and Simon Pocervina, also in his second senior outing for the year across half-back, filled in admirably. “These guys all really impressed me,” O’Keefe said.
Mahmoud El-Hawli responded to his coach’s call for a lift with five goals. “He had a down week last week and I put it on him before the game to make sure that he bounces back really well and he did that,” O’Keefe said. “He kicked five. He presented well and was really strong up forward.” The third-placed Woodsmen will be hot favourites against Albion at McLean Reserve on Saturday. In other division 1 games, Altona hammered Albion by a massive 107 points. St Albans overcame Port Melbourne Colts a real dog fight to strengthen its bid for a top-five
finish. Sunshine Kangaroos extended the North Footscray losing run to 11 this season, and Deer Park maintained its unbeaten run, too good for newly promoted Yarraville-Seddon. In a lopsided weekend of division 2 results, Parkside pummelled Braybrook to the tune of 160 points. Manor Lakes, Sunshine Heights, Glenorden and Albanvale all registered triple-figure margins too. Sadly for neutrals, the closest game of the round in the second tier was Wyndhamvale’s 97-point win over Caroline Springs. WRFL scoreboard, page 53.
RARELY is anything straightforward for Williamstown CYMS in the Victorian Amateur Football Association division 1 this season. The CYs are the drama kings of the league, seemingly preferring a cliffhanger finish to a run-of-the-mill thumping. CYs coach Mathew Montebello could hardly bear to watch on Saturday as his side held on by one point to beat Bulleen-Templestowe on the road at Ted Ajani Reserve. The devil is in the detail for CYs, who saw a 43-point half-time lead disintegrate by late in the fourth term. Spencer Davis spared CYs an embarrassing loss with a late running goal to secure the win. “I can’t handle games like that,” Montebello told the Weekly. “When we go into half-time 43 points up, especially with the way we played the previous week, we thought we’re on here, we’ve got it all together. “To Bulleen’s credit, they were very desperate. Their desperation is what got them back into the game.” There were only 90 seconds on the clock when Davis took back the lead for CYs. Even after that, BulleenTemplestowe had chances to win, twice scoring behinds. “It could have easily gone the other way,” Montebello said. “The players knew we were lucky and we got away with it. “It was a relief because we knew how important it was. We’re now sitting two games clear in second.” When it came to the crunch, CYs had Ben Gray and BulleenTemplestowe did not. Gray was superb with eight goals and a number of clutch marks to once again stamp himself as the big-game player of the division. “The tougher it gets, the better he gets,” Montebello said. “His leadership and ability to influence the game in tight situations is second to none in the league.” Swingman Ryan Danaher played his best game for the club. He starred with two goals as a forward before heading to defence to take some goal-saving marks late. Nic Holdsworth continued his stellar form across half-back and on the ball, while full-back Jake MacKenzie was a scrooge on the last line. The second-placed CYs face thirdranked Ormond in a blockbuster away on Saturday. — Lance Jenkinson
