Hobsons Bay ward news - Budget edition A word from the Mayor Hobsons Bay City Council has approved the draft budget for 2013-2014, with highlights including an allocation of almost $22 million for capital works. The Council’s 2013-2014 operating budget of $109.05 million will ensure the Hobsons Bay community will continue to have access to high quality services, such as subsidised meals for the elderly, home and respite care, kindergarten and childcare places, counselling for young people and quality library materials. We believe the final result reflects the aspirations set out in the Community Health and Wellbeing Plan and the five year Council Plan drawn up after the most thorough public consultations the Council has ever done. The average 5 per cent rate rise reflects the increase in costs across the board. We understand the effect of rising living costs and worked hard to make sure Hobsons Bay rates remain affordable and offer value for money. On the plus side, I am happy to announce that this year we have increased the rate rebate for pensioners and the hardship provisions will stay in place. Across Hobsons Bay, the Council is investing

Heavy burden: Vivienne Conn says the government move to increase rents is the first step to privatisation.

EXCLUSIVE

‘Stealth tactics’ to hit battlers UP to 1200 public housing tenants in the state will be forced to pay market rent or move out as the state government quietly sets about removing rental caps that have been in place “forever”. Vivienne Conn, chairwoman of the Braybrook, Maidstone and Sunshine Public Tenants Association, accused the government of stealth tactics in what she believes is the first step towards privatisation. Rents are now capped at no more than 25 per cent of household income. Ms Conn only became aware of the plans when she received a letter from the Department of Human Services and a phone call from the director of housing.

going out to 1200 tenants last week. A Williamstown public housing tenant, who did not want to be identified, said if his rent went up “I’ll have to eat less, I suppose’’. ‘‘Think about helpless old critters like me who have to rely on soup kitchens, and they’re gone.” But he didn’t oppose a DHS review, saying some tenants were rorting the system. “There’s one bloke renting and he’s got a property in New Zealand which he rents to the Australian government,” he said. “There’s obviously dishonesty. One bloke told me he’s got three or four bank accounts.” The man recalled past talk about privatising Williamstown’s high-rise flats: “Nelson Heights has very nice units there, two bedrooms and all”. In 2008, Liberal MP Bernie Finn

She said tenants started contacting her last week, fearful their rent could rise by more than $80 a week or $350 a month if they are not entitled to a rebate. “At first we thought it was just for people who are working, as a way of removing them from public housing, but there’s been other people who have received a letter who are disabled and old.” Ms Conn said. “They haven’t said a word about this. No one has known about it. “All it was was a phone call [from a department official] to these people to fill in a rental rebate form to see if they fit the criteria. “They’re keeping all this so quiet. It’s all connected with the privatisation of public housing.” The Hobsons Bay Public Tenants Association was unaware of letters

lobbied his government “to begin the process of selling the housing ministry towers in Williamstown”, and moving residents “somewhere like Altona”. Mr Finn this week said his views had not changed. “The Williamstown housing towers are an asset that’s not being fully utilised.” DHS spokeswoman Ruth Ward said the aim of public housing was to help those in greatest need. “Removing rent caps for those paying market rent is intended to ensure that those no longer eligible for public housing pay actual market rent for the property they are in.” There are 1358 social housing properties in Hobsons Bay, 2457 in Maribyrnong and 2028 in Brimbank.

people who are known to each other, like neighbours or people in similar groups to each other. “As a result, over 80 per cent of these incidents result in the arrest of an offender.” Maribyrnong’s Inspector Tony Long said the family violence unit was being kept very busy. “[It is] working closely with victims and offenders alike to make sure people are given the support and assistance needed to help break the cycle of violence.” The Women’s Domestic Violence Crisis Service (WDVCS) said family violence services were at breaking point because of the surge in reports. Crisis line calls last financial year were up 30 per cent to 50,834 and CEO Annette Gillespie said the crisis service was run off its feet. “Every hour of the day, we take countless calls from police, hospitals, schools and other support services who need our help for a woman caught in the vicious cycle of domestic violence,” she said.

FAMILY violence reports have soared in the past 12 months in Maribyrnong and Hobsons Bay. Police say most assaults in the area are committed by family members, friends, neighbours or people otherwise known to the victim. Family violence reports in the 12 months to March 31 jumped 31 per cent from 144 to 189 in Maribyrnong and 23 per cent from 191 to 235 in Hobsons Bay. Overall assault reports rose 13 per cent from 558 to 635 in Maribyrnong and 17 per cent from 541 to 630 in Hobsons Bay, Victoria Police data, released last week, shows. Total crime was up by 11.5 per cent across Hobsons Bay and down by 4.5 per cent in Maribyrnong.

Reverse TAFE cuts, say angry protesters BY BENJAMIN MILLAR

SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

VICTORIA University students angry at savage cuts to TAFE funding staged a protest in Footscray’s Nicholson Street Mall on Monday. Students studying community services work marked National TAFE Day by protesting the job losses, fee hikes and course cuts that followed the state government’s slashing of the TAFE budget by $300 million. Student Leanne Gooch said that as a single mother, TAFE meant the difference between making a great life for her son and living below the poverty line. “Cutting TAFE courses and increasing fees takes away my opportunity to get further education and skills to improve my situation,” she said. “TAFE is under attack across Australia so we’re prepared to take a public stand and say: ‘Reverse the cuts from 2012 and stop any new cuts to our public education’.” Victoria University has been one of the hardest hit by the cuts, losing $40 million last year, slashing almost 80 courses and axing hundreds of positions.

Monday’s protest featured speeches, a public petition and a march back to the Nicholson Street campus. Western suburbs Greens MP Colleen Hartland told the rally she knows the importance of TAFE because it changed her life. “The students here today deserve the same options that I had, not the gutted version of TAFE they’re currently getting courtesy of both Labor and Liberal.” The rally follows calls by the Australian Education Union for the state government to reverse the budget cuts following the Auditor-General’s findings, tabled in Parliament last week, which said Victorian TAFEs had recorded another year of “financial deterioration”. AEU vice-president of TAFE Greg Barclay said the cuts had had a devastating impact on the viability of the public TAFE system. “The AEU predicted massive job losses as a consequence of the 2012 budget cuts and we estimate that more than 2000 teachers have been cut from the public TAFE system in Victoria.”

Hands off: Tafe students deliver their message to the state government.

Council digs its heels in: $1.5m won’t buy a foreshore car park Weaver Reserve and adjacent open space in Bent Street. A 5-2 council majority last week voted to terminate the expressionsof-interest (EoI) process to deveop the Pier Street site. Cherry Lake councillor Tony Briffa, who abstained from voting, said the EoI process had been flawed. On December 1, 2009, the council invited expressions for leasing or buying council-owned land at 10 Pier Street (formerly known as

141 Esplanade and 1 Bent Street). Addressing last week’s council meeting, Cr Briffa asked why the council wasn’t following its own urban design framework, which identified only half of the site for development. Acting planning director Natalie Walker replied that the framework was not binding. Business and finance director Glenn O’Sullivan said the prospective developer originally offered $56,000

and last week upped the offer to $1.5 million He said this was “still below market value”. Strand ward councillor Paul Morgan, who voted against ending the EoI process, asked if the council had made a counter offer. Mr O’Sullivan replied: “During the course of the discussions the developer was informed of a figure, that we’d be looking at at least $26,000 up to around $42,000 (per parking space),

based on the 2011 Altona car parking cost study. They thought the $42,000 was too much to pay.” Strand ward councillor Peter Hemphill said it would cost $2.8 million to $3.2 million to build a new car park. “The real question is, why should the ratepayers pay out the money to fix a developer’s problem?” The developer did not respond to the Weekly’s request for comment. — Goya Dmytryshchak

THE Maltese Association Hobsons Bay is lobbying the council for more parking. President Joe Attard says the Altona East club has about 500 financial members but literally a handful of car-parking spaces. He said that for the past six years the council had promised to prioritise parking provision for the club. Members are still waiting. The club was formed in 1992 to help people suffering from depression and to encourage the elderly, disadvantaged and isolated to socialise. Every Tuesday, members come down to play bingo or table tennis, enjoy a drink and shoot the breeze. Some are on walking frames or in wheelchairs, accompanied by carers. Asked where people parked, Mr Attard replied: “God knows”. “We’ve got people with disabilities, people with frames, walking sticks, wheelchairs.” Mr Attard said members wanted to use parkland next to the Collins Street club for parking. “There’s nothing on it,” he said. “It’s bare. There’s not even a shrub.”

Owen’s story for the world

Report aims to rewrite laws on ‘sexting’

BY BENJAMIN MILLAR

SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

A YARRAVILLE mother is taking her tale of raising a child with severe disability to the world. Claire Halford has written in a global UNICEF report about the challenges and rewards of raising her five-year son Owen, who has cerebral palsy. UNICEF’s State of the World’s Children 2013 report calls for better policies to meet the needs of children with disabilities and urges the world to “see the child before the disability”. Released last week, the report features stories highlighting the challenges faced across the globe, from the poorest countries to the wealthiest. Mrs Halford says sharing her story has provided greater insight into her own journey. “It was a chance to flesh out those thoughts and give me a good perspective on our situation.” When Owen was born he was unable to breathe and his brain was deprived of oxygen. He was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at five

months and cannot sit, roll, walk or speak. At one point he was having up to 200 seizures a day. To look after Owen full-time, Mrs Halford passed up an opportunity to return to teaching life drawing and design at university. She said parents of children with disabilities were riding an endless roller-coaster. “Friends and family could say or do nothing right, so I sought out

others who were in a similar position, through support groups in my area and on the internet.” Mrs Halford said society’s understanding of living with disability was slowly improving and she was heartened by the support for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, but there were still many gaps. UNICEF Children with Disabilities report: unicef.org/sowc2013

A LEADING women’s health organisation has welcomed the first step towards new laws around ‘‘sexting’’. The state parliament law reform committee’s report into sexting, tabled last week, recommends creating an offence for nonconsensual sending of explicit images via mobile phones or social media. It also recommends changing laws so minors and young adults don’t face child pornography charges over sexting. Liberal MP Clem NewtonBrown, the committee chairman, said laws protecting people from non-consensual distribution of explicit images were relatively weak and missed the mark. In contrast, laws surrounding child pornography were so strong they applied even to children who took pictures of themselves. “The law does not adequately recognise that sexting by young

people is different to the sharing of images by paedophiles, and the law does not adequately recognise that real and significant harm is done to people of all ages when explicit images are distributed to third parties without consent.” Dr Robyn Gregory, CEO of Footscray-based Women’s Health West, said the report incorporated each of her organisation’s key recommendations. “Given the context of contemporary culture, media and the internet, which sexualise young women, sexting is often seen by girls as an obligation and by boys as a right,” she said. The inquiry found social repercussions are worse for young women than for young men. Women’s Health West wants a focus on respectful relationships education as well as risk-reduction strategies, such as cyber-safety training for students and teachers. The Victorian government has six months to respond to the report.

Toyota mechanic’s ‘solace in drugs’ ends in police raid BY NICK TOSCANO A FORMER Toyota mechanic turned to a life of drugs and crime due to the “mental fallout” of being laid off from work, a court has heard. Mark Ranaudo, 33, was retrenched from Toyota’s Altona manufacturing plant in April last year after working there for more than a decade. Last Wednesday, Werribee Magistrates Court heard submissions arguing “that was when he came off the rails . . . his mental state declined and he sought solace in drugs”. Ranaudo pleaded guilty to trafficking drugs and possession of an illegal firearm. Detectives launched an investigation into Ranaudo last year and raided his Hoppers Crossing house in September, seizing drugs including crystal methamphetamine, ecstasy and cocaine. They found cutting agents, zip-lock bags, scales and a black diary with names and phone numbers that police believed were those of people who owed him drug debts. The court heard police also found a wooden case that was being used to store

‘Police arrested Ranaudo nearby and found the gun in his car with seven rounds loaded.’ a .45 Remington handgun. Inside the box were 18 live rounds of ammunition and five expended rounds. The gun was not at the house. Police arrested Ranaudo nearby and found the gun in his car with seven rounds loaded. Ranaudo’s defence counsel, who said the father-of-four had no prior criminal history or traffic convictions, tendered psychologist reports that found he had experienced “emotional turmoil to the point of crisis” after being retrenched. The court heard he had been paid a $60,000 redundancy, had too much time on his hands and began using amphetamines twice a week. He was expressing remorse and regret and had stopped using drugs. Ranaudo was given a 12-month community corrections order and ordered to do 250 hours of unpaid community work.

Altona festival’s future on hold BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK

MARK SMITH

Our treasure: Therese Pritchard goes through the new collection.

Maritime bounty docks at Seaworks SEAWORKS at Williamstown is the new home of Victoria’s largest maritime library collection after receiving 3700 books and 30,000 photographs from Victoria’s National Trust. Seaworks executive officer Therese Pritchard says the items have been accumulated by the trust

over many years and previously kept at the Polly Woodside site. “When the development of the site began, the library was moved into storage, approximately seven years ago,” she said. The collection was offered to the Maritime Museum of Victoria, of which Seaworks is a member. Ms

Pritchard said the library would be open to the public and the photos would help people researching family history and immigration. “It is hoped that over the years the library will continue to grow and become a focal point of maritime research, not only for Victoria but the rest of Australia,” she said.

THE future of the two-year-old Altona Beach Festival is in doubt after Hobsons Bay Council last week voted to develop a new strategy for events and festivals. Wetlands ward councillor Luba Grigorovitch said festivals could benefit the community if run properly, but the council had made mistakes. “I think it’s important for us as a council to learn from our mistakes,” she said. “I believe there were some mistakes in the past with events and festivals, and a strategy like this will only improve and give us a clear vision and a way forward.” Cherry Lake ward councillor Tony Briffa said it was hoped the beach festival would continue. In 2010, the council took control of the Bayside festiva, changing its name to the Altona Beach Festival,

shortening it from three days to one, and moving it from Cherry Lake to the foreshore. Operation Recreation president and former festival organiser Therese McKenney-Campbell, had told the Weekly after the November council election that her group had been just about to wind up but would hold off due to the “shake-up on council” after the election at which Cr Briffa’s support base was lost among fellow councillors. Last week, Ms McKenneyCampbell said she did not want to see Altona’s festival “go down the gurgler”. “Let’s say I wouldn’t be pleased that Altona wouldn’t have a festival. But it’s always been on the cards to have it every second year, like they have one in Williamstown and [then] one in Altona. “It would be sad if council didn’t look at funding a community festival.’’

They’re not exactly birds of a feather, but spotters and twitchers share equal enthusiasm thusiasm for documenting their treasured subjects, as Sarah Harris observes.

T

places in Melbourne.” It was also the logical place to install Railpage’s first IP webcam or “railcam”, fulfilling Evans’ ambition to make the hobby accessible to everyone. Rail fans across the country can now gunzel day and night from the comfort of their armchairs, thanks to the installation of an infra-red motion-detection camera on the rooftop of a workshop overlooking the tunnel. And if you imagine there’s not a lot of subscribers, think again. Evans, a senior IT professional, reveals that the Bunbury Street railcam attracts an average of 3000 views a day. Since being installed two years ago, the Flickr-based photostream has received more than 1.7 million views and captured 130,000 images of train movements. Delaney, who provides the meta data to support the photo archive, explains it allows people to gunzel down the line. “It comes though here; I post it so that people living up at, say, Tallarook, Seymour or Broadford have the heads-up so they’re able to set themselves up ready for the action.” Delaney’s own interest is chiefly in the big diesel freighters. “It’s just an interest,” she says. “There are rail fans from all walks of life. Some are just interested in infrastructure, some are into stations, others like steam locos and passenger trains.” Some, like Rodney Nugent – a fellow

member off the Essendon Model Railway Group – are re equally enthusiastic about planes. Nugent gent had just returned from a holiday in South Australia chasing narrowgauge steel and ore trains along dirt roads out of Whyalla yalla when the Weekly caught up with him att the main viewing area alongside Melbournee Airport runways three and four. “I come out to Tulla most days,” the retired Telecom ecom technician from Flemington n reveals. “I watch h the aircraft take off and land, nd, take down all the different nt registrations, and take photos. hotos. “I would d say I’ve spotted 15,000 ,000 to 20,000 planes overr the years. I also collectt die-cast models and have a lot of model aircraft kitss I have put together. “I’ve had d an interest since I was a kid. d. My father was a fighter pilot lot in the Royal Australian Air Force in the Second World orld War and served up in New Guinea. uinea. He used to take me to watch ch all the old planes going out and coming ming in. He also took k me on Puffing Billy,’’ Nugent laughs laughs, h , ‘‘so he has a lott to answer for.”

o the casual onlooker, Michelle Delaney might just have stopped at Footscray’s Bunbury Street railway overpass to admire the city backdrop, but her eyes are firmly on the track. “Ah, here you go ... this is the MS4 and that’s NR13 on the lead,” Delaney says, instantly recognising an old friend as it approaches the tunnel. Delaney may just be the only woman in Australia who can correctly identify every locomotive and lash-up (locomotives linked together) in and out of the Footscray freight portal, but she is by no means alone in her interest. Trainspotting – the quintessential boys’ own pastime of the ’50s and ’60s – is re-emerging from the underground as a thoroughly hi-tech hobby. Forget the anorak and pocket journal. The gunzels, as rail enthusiasts proudly call themselves, are streaming live, employing ultra-slim laptops and phone apps, with much of the action being captured on the South Kensington-West Footscray line. “The western suburbs is the main playing field for trainspotters because this is where most of the freight comes through,” Brian Evans, owner of Railpage, Australia’s largest railways-oriented website, explains. “Bunbury Street is the mecca. When people want to spot trains, this is one of the best

Steam trains were also a first love for Dave Torr although now, as a member of the Werribee Wagtails, it’s birds he spots. “There’s a lot more variety in birds,” he says. “I guess if you’re looking at steam trains there might be 50 and you’ve seen them all. And you are certainly not going to get an exotic steam train 2 flying in from Siberia.’’ And here at the Western Treatment Plant – one of the premier bird-watching sites in Victoria – you just never know what you might see. A third of all the bird species that have been recorded in Australia – including the critically endangered orange-bellied parrot – have been spotted on this 10,500-hectare working treatment plant between Melbourne and Geelong. A visit to the treatment plant is an eyeopener. It’s been transformed by world’s-best environmental practice into wetlands of international significance. “I think everyone who uses the toilet should come to this place and just see what we can do, how we can turn something that for a long time was considered just waste into something valuable and really important on an international level,” Melbourne Water education programs co-ordinator Chris Lunardi says. “It’s gorgeous now. As soon as you come in here your perception of what a sewage treatment plant should be changes. Birders from all over the world know and appreciate this place,” Torr adds. “It rates up there with places like Kakadu.” We have barely arrived at the first pond before Torr identifies the red-kneed dotterel, banded stilt, pink-eared duck, black-shouldered kite and a brolga. His enthusiasm and knowledge create a real feel for this gentle hobby. “It’s something you can do anywhere, at any age,” he says. “There’s a reasonable gender balance, but it can get quite competitive with lists on the internet of how many birds people have seen. “Most of the people with big lists are men. The women are perhaps more interested in the actual birds,” he jokes. Torr’s own sightings run to just over 720 species seen in Australia. “The guy who has the record has about 820. “I will probably never get that other 100. There are probably only about a half dozen or so left to get on the mainland, but a lot of birds go to places like Christmas Island, the Cocos Islands and Ashmore Reef.” For his part, Torr is more than happy to keep focusing his binoculars on the Werribee wetlands. As we watch and wait, a swamp wallaby hops into view, looking directly our way – it seems he’s spotting humans. “Now that’s a first,” Torr laughs.

TALES of migration and displacement have helped a Yarraville author win the 2013 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript. Maxine Beneba Clarke’s collection of short stories, Foreign Soil, traces the movement of people around the world. The poet, writer and journalist says the collection traces experiences across different eras. “I realised over time that I was writing stories about characters who were moving from A to B; there was always a primary character who had relocated for some reason,” she says. “I realised that was the common thread. It is a fairly short book but it required a lot of research.” The stories of migration and displacement occur from the 1940s to the ’90s and include locations such as Australia, Britain and Jamaica. Clarke was born in Australia to a Jamaican father and Guyanan mother. Her parents migrated firstly to London as children and then came together to Australia in 1976. She was an avid reader as a child, but something was always missing in the books she read.

Write material: Maxine Beneba Clarke wants to move beyond soundbites.

“I never saw myself as a character in any book,” she says. “I realised if I wanted that, I had to do it myself; I have this desire to contribute in some way so the children growing up today may see themselves.” Clarke hopes the $15,000 Premier’s award will help Foreign Soil attract a publisher but knows that even this recognition is no guarantee with publishers so worried about bottom lines. “There seems to be a feeling that the

Australian reading public wouldn’t be interested in our migrant experience,” she says. Clarke is turning to short stories as both a personal challenge and a chance to develop ideas and explore contemporary issues. “Writing is my way of digesting what is going on in the world,” she says. “I think we are living in a world where we are consuming things in soundbites and I want to explore beyond that.”

The well-maintained front garden hints at just how lovingly cared for this place has been, being re-wired and re-plumbed while retaining original character in its layout and period-style notes, including decorative cornices and picture rails.

A

Inside, the front of the house is given over to the two bedrooms, the main with built-in wardrobes. They share a functional bathroom with blue and sea-themed tiles, bath and shower. The living areas are something to boast about, with an open, cosy lounge room to one side featuring a gas log fireplace with mantle. A family meals area has a split-system unit, while the country-style kitchen has stonetopped benches and a sunny window alcove for potted herbs. Down the hall, a powder room doubles as an added storage option.

In the split-level extension at the back there’s a study with a pitched wooden ceiling and exposed brick wall. A sunroom could be used as a retreat or third bedroom. From here there’s a laundry and internal access to the tandem garage. An undercover entertainment deck, accessed from both the lounge and family-meals area, looks out over the established and wellmaintained back garden, which has fruit trees, bark chip garden beds, herbs, and a garden shed. There’s also multiple off-street parking in the long driveway.

Fixed deal in a fix There’s a catch to fixed-price servicing, writes Rod Easdown

F

their dealers are the only customers they have. That’s why a recent kerfuffle in Queensland caught my eye. A woman who owns a small Hyundai went onto Facebook complaining about servicing at a dealer. She accused the dealership of “deliberate fraud” after being quoted an additional $700 in recommended repairs for a standard $300 service. When the media aired her complaint, it led to a string of online comments about how dealers try to stitch up their service customers, from charging for oil changes that haven’t been performed to doing stuff the customer didn’t authorise, such as putting expensive additives in the fuel and engine. Performance of unnecessary work was also a popular topic. Let me state that the bulk of dealerships act responsibly, and modern cars are so complex and mechanically varied that there’s no way I’d have a new car serviced anywhere but at an authorised dealer, at least for the first three or four years. But the cold, hard fact is that maintaining a service operation is far from cheap, and with

SUPPLIED

ixed-price servicing seems to be the marketing idea du jour in motoring. Most recently Volkswagen has offered it across the range for the first six years. Yep, six. It’s a great idea. Owners know where they stand before they bring the car in for a service rather than after, and there are so many of these plans on offer that buyers can compare service costs between a good deal of models. But it may also be opening a can of worms. Some background: the marketing guys have to come up with plans that are financially attractive to customers and also provide cars with enough attention to keep them out of trouble. The plan has to be sold to the dealer group, and dealers are a stroppy lot when it comes to service. Generally they don’t make much on the sale of new cars and they try to claw back profitability through parts and service. If an importer or manufacturer comes to them with a plan to instigate fixed-price servicing, you can bet they’ll go through it with a fine-tooth comb, and if they don’t like it they’ll raise hell. Car companies hate unhappy dealers because at the end of the day

fixed-price servicing the margins are slimming down. The temptation is always there to generate extra income wherever possible. The onus, therefore, is on the owner to ensure all scheduled work is carried out properly and that no unscheduled work is done without permission and a firm quote. I like the guy who busted a service outlet that charged him for rotating the tyres. He’d marked all four with chalk and none had been moved. I

Borough final-quarter blitz sees Seagulls beaten for bragging rights BY DANIEL PAPROTH A six-goal last quarter by Port Melbourne sunk the Seagulls on Sunday as the Borough held on to bragging rights in the legendary VFL rivalry. For three quarters, the top-of-thetable clash didn’t disappoint. With the ground packed with vocal supporters in both red and blue and blue and yellow, both teams battled hard to gain the ascendancy. The Seagulls, still missing

captain Ben Jolley, midfielder Jamie McNamara and defender Stephen Witkowski, kicked four goals in the first quarter after Port kicked the opening two. Port Melbourne welcomed back two of its best from injury, hard nut Toby Pinwill and two-time Liston Trophy winner Shane Valenti. The second term saw the Borough grab the lead, kicking the first four goals of the quarter before Williamstown cut the lead with a couple of late goals. After the break, it was Port that

again had all the momentum early, with the Seagulls making several crucial turnovers in the middle of the ground. Port led by 23 before late goals to Christian Howard and Cameron Wood cut the margin back to 10 points. Williamstown coach Peter German urged his players to take the game on in the last quarter,+ but they were no match for the hardened bodies of the Borough. For Port, Dean Galea finished with six goals, despite being double and

triple-teamed in contested marking contests, and Toby Pinwill was inspirational. Veteran skipper John Baird doesn’t seem to play a bad game of football. Anthony Anastasio kicked Williamstown’s only major of the quarter, running into an open goal after finding space inside 50 – a rarity against the Port Melbourne defenders. German said the Seagulls “had to try something a bit different” in the last quarter. “I felt we were probably just hanging on by the skin of our teeth all

No striker: now Magic’s in free-fall

Ainsworth claims road race sash

BY LANCE JENKINSON

MICHAEL COPP

ALTONA Magic is paying the price for its lack of cutting edge up front in the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 1. The Magic has not found adequate cover for sidelined striker Melvin Becket, who is serving a seven-game suspension for an indiscretion in a state knockout cup game on May 4. Chances continue to fall the way of the Magic’s front line, but they are not being grabbed. The Magic is in free-fall with just one point from its past five matches, leaving it languishing in ninth. The team had a plethora of chances to put Werribee City to the sword when leading by a goal at Paisley Park on Sunday, but it left the door ajar for the Bees with some poor finishing and the visitors took full advantage for a 2-1 win. Magic football operations manager Rubin Todorovski said his side was not getting value for its efforts across the park because of inability to score as frequently as it had done in the opening month of the campaign. “It’s just a shame that it’s come down to a lack of finishing that has cost us the game again,’’ he said. “It’s a team sport – when you score a goal, you’ve got to use your teammates. I’m not saying players aren’t passing the ball, but they could’ve made some better decisions, put it that way.” The Magic took the lead in the 38th minute through Stevce Dimcevski, who was beneficiary of a Bees defensive mix-up that resulted in a tap-in for the striker. The second half was full of drama with the referee handing out two red cards, one for each side. The Bees exploited the extra space,

Missing link: Altona Magic is missing the goals and creativity of the suspended Melvin Becket.

finding an equaliser through captain Milan Savic before Gazmend Ajdini scored the winner. The concession of two goals in quick succession was due to a lapse in concentration from the Magic defence, a worrying trend that has been evident in recent weeks. “It’s not the performance, it’s more a psychological thing,’’ Todorovski said. “We haven’t been getting played off the park – all the losses are just from not concentrating.”

The Magic will face Lalor United in a friendly match at Paisley Park on Saturday. In state league 2, Altona East Phoenix was no contest for ladder leader Moreland City, which won 5-2 in a canter at Campbell Reserve. In state league 3, Altona City moved four points clear of bottom spot with a 2-1 win over cellar dweller Hume City at HC Kim Reserve. There were plenty of goals in the match between Yarraville

game,” he said. “I urged the players to take the game on a bit, but we kept turning the ball over and it really made it tough. “They had 16 more inside-50s in the last quarter, so they really did put us under a lot of pressure.” German said the 175-point win over Bendigo the previous week was not ideal preparation. “But it still doesn’t matter,” he said. “The players were given plenty of warning about what type of game it was going to be and we couldn’t combat it for the whole game.”

Glory and Moreland United, but it was United that left McIvor Reserve with a 4-2 win. In state league 4, Williamstown and the Essendon Royals settled on a 0-0 draw at the Reggio Calabria Club, while Maribyrnong Greens lost 2-1 at home to Surf Coast. In state league 5, Melbourne City, led by two goals from Simbarashe Said and made Melton Phoenix sweat it out at MacPherson Park before the Phoenix collected a 3-2 win.

THE Hugh Cram Memorial Sash is one of the most exciting races in the Footscray Cycling Club’s winter road season. The 54 riders are split into six ability-based bunches, with the gun riders on scratch and setting off 27 minutes after the first ‘‘limit’’ bunch. From first rider to last, everyone has a chance to win on the notoriously tough Granite Road hills course at Staughtonvale. This year, victory went to Tom Ainsworth, who was thrilled to claim the sash named in memory of club legend Hugh Cram. Ainsworth, a Williamstown resident, won the race from the third scratch group. “This is extraordinary – I’m truly humbled,’’ he said. “I’m honoured to win something with the Cram name on it.” For the guns in the scratch group, the catch became even more difficult as the bunch blew apart, with Dom Dudkiewicz and Ben Johnson forging ahead. Ainsworth settled into the third scratch group, which managed to keep its distance from the scratch riders. “The group worked really well together today,’’ he said. “As we headed down Granite Road, Alister Rau did a massive turn leading to the turnaround point and blew everyone away, then we looked around and there were just the three of us. “Myself, Josh Toohey and Alister swapped turns until the second last hill, when Alister backed off and Josh and I worked together and sprinted it out at the end.” Ainsworth crossed the line in 2:01.29, just ahead of Toohey with Rau completing the podium. Dudkiewicz landed the fastest time sash, completing the course in 1:34.29.

Jets hunt in numbers to down Bushrangers BY LANCE JENKINSON THE Western Jets were like hungry pack dogs delivering a 63-point mauling of the Murray Bushrangers in the TAC Cup at Wangaratta on Saturday. From the start, the Jets were ferocious at stoppages, hunting in numbers and getting to the ball first. When the Bushrangers did get a feel of the leather, they were quickly set upon by an eager Jets’ onball brigade. Jets region manager Shane Sexton said his side relished the wintry

conditions at the Norm Minns Oval. “It was difficult conditions, rained throughout the entire game, but our kids played good wet weather footy,’’ he said. “High-pressure, highcontested ball, high tackle count and we were able to control the game all day. It was really a whole team effort.” There was a whisper the game might not go ahead as planned after torrential overnight rain. The wings were flooded, but a local plumber drained the surface water and the game went ahead.

had a shoulder reconstruction and missed a year. As an 18-year-old, he got a scholarship to go to Geelong Grammar and that precluded him from playing much TAC Cup footy. “[This season] He’s had a really consistent season – high possessions, good work rate and contested ball.’’ There will be no TAC Cup football during the Queen’s Birthday weekend, but Vic Metro will be in action against NSW/ACT on Sunday at Visy Park. The Jets’ next clash will be another big one, against the Northern Knights on June 15.

The Bushrangers’ first goal did not come until time-on in the second term. They would finish with four for the game, not nearly enough to beat a Jets’ side that has Jake Greiser, James Sicily and David Iaccarino in form. Iaccarino has excelled under the 19-year-old rule this season. He booted two goals to go with another high-possession game, and his approach to the game reflected that of his team on the whole. “He’s always been a talented player, but he hasn’t had a lot of luck,’’ Sexton said. “As a 17-year-old, he

West’s netball talent catches selectors’ eyes

Pumped up: Will Minson loves to kick a goal for the Western Bulldogs.

‘For us to come out and turnaround what we did last night was a big effort.’ The Gators were still satisfied to earn a split from their tough double-header. They did it without star Shaun Phelan having a major impact offensively. Phelan scored just six points, but his work on the defensive end more than made up for his lack of scoring. “He kept plugging away and did what he had to do on defence and changed a lot of shots,” Shanklin said. It was unheralded guard Matthew Jon who sparked the Gators in the second and third quarters. Jon finished with 18 points and nine rebounds to be a shot in the arm for the Gators’ offence after it had stalled out of the blocks in the first period. “We were struggling to score, we put him in and he actually started our run in the second quarter,’’ Shanklin said. The key to the Gators’ win was their team D. The Gators put up a brick wall defence and the Eagles found it nigh on impenetrable in the crucial moments. “It was really a team effort,’’ Shanklin said. “We pride ourselves on one of their guys having to play on five of our guys.” The Gators head into the Queen’s Birthday break sitting fourth in the Terril conference with a 6-8 record.

sensational performance with a goal. The 28-year-old leads the competition in hit outs with 417 at an average of 41.7 a game. The young Bulldogs have hit some good form, largely on the back of Ryan Griffen’s impact in the midfield. Griffen had 40 touches and laid nine tackles in a best-on-ground display against the Power. Veteran Daniel Giansiracusa booted 2.2 in the super sub role. The Bulldogs have won their past two matches and have a bye this round.

THE talent of western suburbs netballers has been recognised with more than a third of the players named in state teams to compete in the Australian Netball League coming from the west. Selectors for Victorian Fury and Victorian Flames squads have recruited heavily from City West Falcons or VU-Western Lightning. Players came to the attention of selectors when both teams squared off in last year’s Victorian Netball League grand final. The Fury, a traditional team in the ANL, is looking to bounce back after a fifth-place finish last season. Selectors have picked Elle Bennetts, Erin McCarthy and Fiona Themann from the Lightning and Kate Moloney and Casey Price from the Falcons. Nicole Richardson, an assistant coach and former player at the Falcons, will assist Fury coach Stacey West on the sidelines. The Flames, a newly formed expansion team, have plundered the stocks of the Falcons with five players coming from the VNL champion team – Maggie Lind, Emily Mannix, Liz Watson, Alice Teague-Neeld and Chloe Watson. Megan Fitzpatrick was the only Lightning player named for the Flames. The Australian Netball League will begin on July 6 and run for eight weeks, with the grand final scheduled for August 25.

ALTONA Gators displayed yo-yo form in their Big V basketball men’s division 1 double-header weekend. On Saturday night, the Gators were taken to the cleaners in an 86-56 road loss to the Chelsea Gulls, the Watson conference leaders. Only hours later, the Gators were back in the comfortable surroundings of their home court taking on fellow Terril conference team Craigieburn Eagles. The Gators cruised to a 64-51 win. “For us to turn that around, bounce back and get a good win over a good team was important,’’ Gators coach Randy Shanklin said. “No matter where they are sitting on the ladder, they beat us first game of the season. “So for us to come out and turnaround what we did last night was a big effort.” The Gators led the Eagles by a commanding 28 points at one stage, but let the visitors gain some respectability on the scoreboard in the last period. In the Big V, percentage is one of the formulas used to split teams on the ladder, and the Gators cost themselves a large chunk of it by taking their foot off the pedal late in the game. “Unfortunately, we lost by 30 last night and we had a 28-point lead today, so we could’ve got those points back for percentage,’’ Shanklin said. “We gave up the opportunity to get points back, so that was disappointing.”

For the Jets it was a big game wedged between two bye weekends. A return to the top-eight was likely to be at stake after they had tumbled out in their previous outing. The Jets’ players produced their best four-quarter performance for the year. “We knew, just looking at the ladder, we needed to get the four points,’’ Sexton said. “They played with that sort of intensity and got the job done.’’ The game was over all but over at half-time.

Will’s All-Australian pace WILL Minson has been in outstanding form for the Western Bulldogs in the AFL. Some are saying the big man is on track for All-Australian honours after 10 rounds – no surprise, with Minson playing such a crucial role as a lone ruckman for the Dogs. His physical presence was important in the Bulldogs’ comefrom-behind nine-point win over Port Adelaide in Darwin on Saturday night. Minson collected a massive 57 hit outs and 13 disposals, capping a

‘Baby Gators’ make coach proud BY LANCE JENKINSON RANDY Shanklin can be mighty proud of his ‘‘Baby Gators’’. One of the youngest teams in the Big V basketball women’s division 1, the Altona Gators bravely took it up to powerhouse Craigieburn Eagles at the Craigieburn Leisure Centre on Saturday night before losing 71-68 in an overtime thriller. Years of experience was lost by the Gators last year when Sharon Grieve, Emma Coyne, Louise Johnston and Nicole McMahon, one of the centrepieces of the Eagles team at the

weekend, departed the Swamp. The replacements came in the form of youth league players wanting to step up. A painful transition it was supposed to be. Yet while the Gators sit last with just two wins from 11 starts, the rapid improvement of their young players is coming quicker than expected. Coach Shanklin has shown belief in his players – and perhaps the youngsters are now starting to believe in themselves. Taking a quality team like the

Eagles, top of the ladder with an 11-1 record, to the brink is a sign of significant improvement from the young line-up. “I’m loving what they’re doing right now,” Shanklin said. “Where we were getting beaten by 30 or 40 points earlier in the year, all of a sudden that’s changing.’’ The Gators had their chances to win the game in overtime, but blew it. They had 12 shots to seven in the extra period, but still lost as the Eagles iced the game from the freethrow line.

Jayne-Maree Sant had a brilliant game for the Gators with 26 points, 11 rebounds and three assists. Katrina Vogelezang (12 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals) and Ashley Patterson (six points, four rebounds and seven assists) logged a marathon 40 minutes. In a cruel twist, it was former Gator Nicole McMahon who would prove the difference, with 18 points and 17 rebounds, proving there is no substitute for experience late in games.

Williamstown rules the west WILLIAMSTOWN won a lopsided western derby 17-6 against Footscray in the Lacrosse Victoria men’s state league at Angliss Reserve on Saturday. In men’s division 1, Altona lost 13-12 away to Moreland at Fleming Park, despite four goals from Campbell Mackinnon. In state league women, Newport came back in the second half to beat Footscray 12-10 at Greenwich Reserve. Williamstown hammered Eastside 17-3 on their visit to Treyvaud Memorial Reserve.

Altona fails to convert

MICHAEL COPP

ALTONA was on the back foot for the best part of 70 minutes in a 4-0 thrashing from Camberwell in the Hockey Victoria premier league on Saturday. The Seagulls could not get their sticks on the ball in the first half as Camberwell dominated possession with superior pace and skill. Two penalty corner conversions from Camberwell left the Seagulls shell-shocked and trailing 2-0 at half-time. The Seagulls had more possession in the second half and appeared more dangerous in attack, but every shot they attempted was repelled by Australian international goalkeeper George Bazeley. Camberwell added to the damage through a penalty stroke and a coastto-coast goal. “We were given a lesson by a very good side today, highlighting a number of areas for us to improve,’’ Seagulls coach Ben Guy said. Improvement did come for the Seagulls in part two of the weekend’s double-header. They managed a 2-2 draw with Essendon at home on Sunday after goals to Patrick Phillips and Chris Porter. Footscray had back-to-back losses at the weekend, losing to Waverley and Mentone with 3-2 scorelines. In women’s premier league, Altona sits second-last after consecutive losses at the weekend. The Seagulls lost in heartbreaking fashion, 4-3 to Camberwell on Saturday, and seemingly never recovered as they were belted 5-1 at home by Essendon on Sunday. Footscray was disappointing, losing 3-1 to Mentone and drawing 2-2 with Waverley.

Detractors silenced as Lakes claim big scalp BY LANCE JENKINSON

Altona Roosters failed to turn up in a 38-6 belting from the Casey Warriors in Victorian Rugby League first grade on Saturday. The hot and cold Roosters have lost their past two matches after winning in the opening two rounds of the season. They will not get a chance to make amends until June 22, with the VRL going into recess for the Queen’s Birthday weekend and the Roosters having a bye the week later.

Netball City West Falcons had a fruitful week on the court in the Victorian Netball League, winning two games in four days.

DETRACTORS of Manor Lakes have gone in hiding for a week at least. The Storm side was accused of beating no one of finals ilk and handed a soft draw in its first Western Region Football League division 2 season. The Storm claimed a big scalp in the form of last year’s runners-up Parkside in a two-point thriller at Howqua Reserve on Saturday. “Everyone has been saying that we’ve only been beating the lower sides, so we had a point to prove and that’s what happened,” Storm vicepresident Brad Syme said. “We were pretty determined to win this one. The boys have got a lot of belief and that’s what got us across the line.” With Storm trailing by less than a kick with 20 seconds to go, youngster Ben Lancaster set up front and centre of a pack, read the ball off hands and snapped over his shoulder to put his team in front. Parkside made one last push in the dying seconds, delivering the ball deep into the forward line, only for the siren to beat them. Jubilant Storm players piled on each other to celebrate an unforgettable win. “It was sensational,” Syme said. “It was heart in mouth stuff for us. That’s our first big scalp in the competition.” Lancaster was an unlikely hero for the Storm.

Usually used in defence, the 19-year-old was let off the leash as a result of a mounting injury list. At first, the former Caroline Springs under-18 captain was used in a tagging role, then told to cause havoc inside forward 50. He did so with two goals. “He really lifted for us,” Syme said. It was a game of momentum swings. The Storm had the better of the first half, leading by 17 points at the main break. Ruckman Mitch Anthony, onballers Nathan Montague and Frank Pavez, and half-back Shaun Gill stood out. Parkside piled on five goals to nil in the third quarter to take a 13 point lead into the last term. The Storm, with the aid of a slight breeze, booted the last two goals of the game to claim victory and silence their critics. In other division 2 matches, onetime Western Bulldogs-listed player Paul O’Shea booted 13 goals in Wyndhamvale’s 176-point thrashing of North Sunshine at Dempster Park. Damien Yze snared nine goals for Glenorden in a 172-point belting of Braybrook at Pennell Reserve. Sanctuary Lakes led at every change to beat West Footscray by 27 points at Featherbrook Reserve. Caroline Springs wore down Laverton Magpies for a hard-fought 31-point win at Laverton Park, while Sunshine Heights cruised to a 77-point win over Albanvale at Robert Bruce Reserve.

Williamstown CYMS held on for a two-point win over Whitefriars in the Victorian Amateur Football Association division 1 at Fearon Reserve on Saturday. Inspirational CYs skipper Ben Gray was again the go-to man in attack with six goals to make it 16 from his past two matches. Nic Holdsworth, Jack Gray and Craig Taylor were the other CYs players to impress.

Woodsmen win, but are hungry for more BY LANCE JENKINSON SPOTSWOOD leapt back into the Western Region Football League division 1 top two before the Queen’s Birthday break, but only scratched the surface of its full potential in a 46-point win over Sunshine Kangaroos at Kinder Smith Reserve on Saturday. The Woodsmen have struggled to find consistency in the past fortnight, producing moments of their best football alongside periods of sloppiness you would not associate with a side that wants to give the premiership a shake. On the bright side, the Woodsmen are on track nearing the midway point of the season to claim a double chance.

Woodsmen player-coach Chris O’Keefe said victories on the road at Sunshine should be savoured because it is a hard place to get four points, but he stopped short of lauding the performance as the best of the season. “It was certainly not our best performance,” he said. “We were scrappy early on, we made mistakes and we over-used the footy in the wet, but then we came out after half time and played two good quarters of footy. “We’re looking for four-quarter performances, certainly not two quarters’ worth. “We’re still happy to come away with the win – Sunshine at Sunshine is a really hard game to win – but we’ve still got improvement to come and some areas to sort out.”

Spotswood started with a goal-less opening quarter to trail by 17 points at the first change and took longer to adjust to the slippery conditions than the home side. Once the machine clicked into top gear on the back of ferocious onballers Justin Dorwood and Michael Fogarty, the Woodsmen would prove hard to stop. Five goals to three in the second quarter had them almost back on level pegging at the half time break, followed by a devastating four goals in five minutes to start the third term to spark a second half runaway. Jason Cloke was used as a high half forward and presented well for the Woodsmen. The key position player roamed to break away from the double team that invariably comes

his way. Murray Boyd was another Woodsmen tall used to good effect. He, too, was used in a variety of roles – ruck, half back and deep forward. “He’s big and strong around the ground and gives you a fantastic contest,” O’Keefe said. “His ability to take some really good pack marks and be so strong in the air is an asset to us.” It was a day that Woodsmen defender Simon Pocervina will not forget, returning to the senior line-up for the first time since a sickening leg injury three years ago. Pocervina went through a long rehabilitation after breaking his leg and tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in the one incident. He was promoted after showing

good signs in the reserves on his comeback trail. “We expect he would’ve been pretty nervous at the start, but he got through it pretty well,’’ O’Keefe said. “He acquitted himself well at centre half back on Tom Millar, which will be a real confidence boost for him.” In other division 1 games, Cameron Trewin snared five goals to spark Deer Park in a 40-point win over Port Melbourne Colts at Murphy Reserve. Damien Fitzpatrick booted eight goals in St Albans’ 80-point mauling of Albion at Kings Park Reserve. Altona powered to a 115-point win over newly promoted YarravilleSeddon at the Yarraville Oval, while Hoppers Crossing pummelled North Footscray by 154 points at Hogans Road Oval.
