Autism school but no ‘truck action’

The budget included $294 million over two years for the eastern stage of the east-west link, defying calls to start the link in the west, instead connecting Hoddle Street with CityLink. Western suburbs Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury defended the decision to fund the eastern section first. ‘‘We had to start somewhere. We have got this first stage under way and that will improve traffic by diverting people away from the M1 corridor.’’ Construction would begin late next year and finish around 2019. Western suburbs Greens MP Colleen Hartland said the government

schools or prop up healthcare services. “The so-called east-west link will come nowhere near the west. What’s proposed is to build a link between the Eastern Freeway and CityLink — not a second river crossing as Labor proposed to take pressure off the West Gate corridor,” he said. “The tragic part of this budget is that the Liberals have removed the $40 million that the previous Labor government allocated for the first stage of the truck action plan. Up to this point, the project has had a faint heartbeat, but with a stroke of a pen this government has killed it off.” Altona MP Jill Hennessy said the budget failed to deal with the blowout in ambulance response times or fund any mainstream schools or local roads.

THE 2013-14 state budget has delivered a mixed bag for Melbourne’s western suburbs. Tabling the Napthine government’s first budget yesterday, new Treasurer Michael O’Brien confirmed funding for dental care and the west’s first dedicated P-12 autism school. But the truck action plan to divert trucks off residential streets is dead in the water and no money has been provided for any other major innerwest projects, such as upgrades to the Western Hospital. A highlight for the west was $9.7 million for Western Region Health Centre (WRHC) to build a new dental clinic after years of lobbying by both sides of government. Families of children with autism were overjoyed at $8 million funding for a prep to year 12 autism school at Laverton. It will cater for 140 students and will service Brimbank, Hobsons Bay, Maribyrnong, Melton, Moonee Valley and Wyndham. Autism Schools Action co-founder Elizabeth Websdale, an Altona Meadows mother of two children with autism, said the seven-year campaign had been fought for the next generation of children. ‘‘It’s a relief after we fought for so long,’’ she said. ‘‘It’s really good news and a relief that finally they’ve announced stage two.’’ Action for Autism Education founders, Werribee couple Danny Sorbello and Angela Hickey-Sorbello, welcomed the news of a further $8 million. “For some kids, a mainstream school is never going to be an option,” Ms Hickey-Sorbello said. “This provides choice for parents, to choose what’s the best education

Collaboration key to settling the dust BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM

Time for action: Bert Boere and residents want Brooklyn cleaned up.

Picture: Mal Fairclough

A PETITION signed by a third of Brooklyn residents has been presented to State Parliament as calls to slash dust pollution levels in the industrial area intensify. Williamstown Labor MP Wade Noonan tabled the 300-signature petition yesterday, demanding the urgent implementation of Brimbank Council’s ‘‘Brooklyn Evolution’’ project. The petition follows a submission to the Senate from the council earlier this year calling for immediate action on the main source of pollution — the Brooklyn triangle, an area bounded by Kororoit Creek and Somerville and Geelong roads. The petition asserts that pollution in ‘‘Victoria’s worst pollution black spot’’ puts residents at risk of respiratory infection, allergic reactions, asthma, chronic respiratory diseases and heart conditions. Recommendations of the strategy include identifying priority areas for development and addressing issues relating to stormwater quality, drainage and environmental degradation. The

strategy is also aimed at enhancing the area’s image with high-quality development and urban design treatments, particularly along main roads. Mr Noonan said more than a third of Brooklyn’s population had signed the document “because they want and expect change’’. ‘‘It’s now time for the state government to step up and devote significant resources to reverse environmental pollution in Brooklyn’’. Mr Noonan said residents had been subjected to dust, odour and noise pollution from the industrial estate for too long. Brooklyn Residents Action Group spokesman Bert Boere said state Environment Minister Ryan Smith had agreed to meet with community leaders in the coming weeks. ‘‘Through the Environment Protection Authority we have been told the minister plans to meet with us, to discuss ways we can begin to implement the plans of the Brooklyn Evolution project,’’ he said. ‘‘But it needs to be a collaborative approach between the council, state government, EPA and VicRoads.’’ Brooklyn’s community reference group will meet to discuss the project at Brooklyn Community Hall from 6pm on May 15.

Brooklyn link: council goes ahead with subdivision plan HOBSONS Bay Council has voted to subdivide and sell part of a Brooklyn property despite residents lobbying for it to be kept for open space. But the council denied reports it was reneging on a promise to retain all of the land at 31 Cypress Avenue. As reported by the Weekly, former councillor Michael Raffoul last month wrote to the acting CEO, stating a four-metre laneway ‘‘will not meet the needs of the community nor the expectation of a wide open green connection that would at last link the two communities’’.

Last week’s council meeting heard that Mr Raffoul had been one of the councillors who voted unanimously to follow an officer’s recommendation to subdivide the property. Cr Tony Briffa said that when the former council last year voted for the subdivision, the decision was ‘‘always subject to community consultation’’. ‘‘Some councillors at the time, including Michael Raffoul and myself, were not in support of the sale, but we were happy to keep our minds open to the recommendation and hear what the community thought,’’ he said. Cr Sandra Wilson

said she had listened to a recording of the former council’s decision and was certain that no promise was being dishonoured. It is the second property the council has bought in Cypress Avenue to provide a community link to the Federation Trail bike and pedestrian path. Brooklyn Residents Action Group (BRAG) spokesman Bert Boere said the first purchase might have been hasty due to a shortage of properties on the market at the time. ‘‘It was in a position fairly close to Geelong Road that we wouldn’t have preferred.

CHURCHES will be among properties charged a state government fire services levy, to be collected in their council rates, for the first time in July. The levy, recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties or $200 for other types, plus a variable rate calculated on a property’s capital improved value. The Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne, representing more than 200 churches, lobbied unsuccessfully against the levy. In its submission, released under freedom of information, the archdioscese stated that ‘‘it is inequitable if beneficiaries of the services are not contributing either because they under-insure or fail to insure their property’’. Its submission states that it is difficult to place a

market value on a church. ‘‘If the fire services levy is to be based on an ad valorem rate on properties, not-for-profit property owners such as the archdiocese should be given access to a low-cost avenue to appeal against the valuation.’’ Reverend Bill Beagley, of Williamstown’s Holy Trinity Anglican church, is in the unique position of knowing what his church’s land may be worth. In late 2011, for the first time in 157 years, the church cleaved off a 2410-square-metre site as an 11-lot townhouse subdivision. The sale netted about $5 million, about $1 million less than expected. Mr Beagley is ‘‘in two minds’’ about the levy. ‘‘If there were a fire, we’d expect the fire brigade to come rolling out like anyone else,’’ he said. ‘‘But there’s the thing about not being able to put a market value on a church. A church in a position like ours is in

Church, council miffed by levy BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK

Boats come in for workers Williamstown’s BAE shipyard has been awarded a navy contract, allaying fears of job losses in July. Federal Defence Minister Stephen Smith last week announced four destroyer hull blocks would be completed at Williamstown. Work on a previous contract for three hulls will be finished mid-year.

Men glassed at party Two men have been charged after a glassing at a Maribyrnong hotel that left two friends with their faces gashed and bleeding. The men, 24 and 25, of Burnside, were arrested and questioned about the attack on the friends, a Werribee man and Melton West man, at Anglers Tavern on April 20. The Melton West man suffered disfiguring injuries in the incident, which took place at an engagement party, after being hit with a glass. His friend, from Werribee, suffered a facial injury and was taken to hospital.

The budget bottom line is being hit by a $1.5 million unfunded superannuation liability as well as $1 million for the carbon tax.

A further $5 million would be spent on roads and traffic management with $3 million towards parks, recreation and tree planting. The proposed 4.9 per cent rate includes 2.9 per cent to cover inflation and 2 per cent specifically for asset renewal. Based on last year’s median property value rates of $1577, residents would pay $1654 — an extra $77. A report tabled with the budget stated the rise would help the council deal with ageing infrastructure. “This gap, if not addressed, will create unsustainable liabilities for the future.”

Misunderstanding: it’s art, not beer BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK AS the navy popped its cork over opposition leader Tony Abbott’s repeated references to drunken sailors, Hobsons Bay Yacht Club has been busy celebrating its colourful history. Williamstown sailors hosted a race day on Saturday, recognising the first race of the 125-year-old club held on May 24, 1888 — Queen Victoria’s birthday. Winners of Saturday’s race received a two-bottle matched set of fine wines. Club captain Kevin LeNepveu recalled with amusement a police raid on the Nelson Place establishment in 1947. The constable of the day testified he saw a dance in progress with men serving beer. ‘‘Apparently the club was running a fund-raiser and there were some beers involved and they were selling raffle tickets for some works of art and there was a policeman in the audience who said that he saw people handing over the raffle ticket and receiving a beer.

So, that was in breach of the Licensing Act.’’ Under cross-examination, witnesses confessed there were three empty ninegallon barrels and two more on tap. ‘‘But it was a case of mistaken identity because those raffle tickets were for a work of art,’’ Mr LeNepveu said. ‘‘It was just a misunderstanding.’’ Mr LeNepveu said the yacht club was the oldest in Victoria — and possibly Australia — continuously occupying its original site. Capping off a big week, two club crews celebrated the completion of an international race from Williamstown to Osaka, Japan. Eric Marsh and Paul Neilson, aboard the Turbulence, finished the 5500-nautical-mile journey on Friday, several days behind Escapade’s crew of Robert Bradley and Joey Gough.

BY BENJAMIN MILLAR HIGH-RISE towers of up to 25 storeys and a doubling of the area’s population within two decades will place Footscray’s infrastructure and services under heavy strain, a new Maribyrnong Council document warns. The draft Footscray structure plan, tabled at the council’s city development committee meeting last week, is a blueprint to make Footscray “a more attractive place to live, work and play”. It focuses on a five-square-kilometre footprint from the Maribyrnong River to Ballarat and Geelong roads, and paves the way for Footscray to become “the western arm of the Melbourne CBD” with eight distinct precincts. Key priorities to keep Footscray liveable include community and early years hubs, an arts complex and improved streetscapes and open spaces. The plan predicts a population boom will more than double resident numbers from 14,100 to 30,500 by 2031, requiring about 7000 new dwellings.

“Some of the changes Footscray is undergoing are challenging its traditional working-class identity as the ‘heart of the west’,” according to the plan. “It is important to ensure the change is actively managed in a logical and sustainable way.” Much of the development is expected to occur as high-density projects of up to 25 storeys in the Joseph Road precinct and locations such as near Footscray station and the Footscray Market site. The cost of upgrading and replacing infrastructure will need to be met by developers. The plan also notes Footscray is yet to see the level of redevelopment and revitalisation envisaged in the 1990s. Factors holding the area back include highvolume car and freight traffic, underperforming retail and the area’s industrial past creating contaminated land and pollution challenges. Cr Michael Clarke said the document paved the way for avoiding a “block skyline” of highrise towers throughout Footscray. Councillors voted to approve the draft being put out to public consultation.

Clash over curfews as trucks proliferate BY BENJAMIN MILLAR VICROADS has defended its opposition to rolling out increased truck curfews in the inner west. The Weekly last month reported Maribyrnong Council intends to lobby the state government to introduce a curfew on Moore Street, Footscray, and extend current weekend curfews to operate from 8pm on Friday to 6am, Monday. The decision follows a review by a truck curfew review committee into the impact of increased truck traffic on Footscray and Yarraville residents. But despite the support of the council and resident representatives on the committee, VicRoads and local industry are pushing back against any changes. VicRoads regional director Patricia Liew said the authority must consider factors including impacts on residents, effects on local businesses, travels cost and the availability of alternate routes.

“VicRoads considers the times currently in place in Maribyrnong to be the best balance between the needs of the residents and the needs of the businesses in the area,” she said. This includes maintaining no curfew on Moore Street, Footscray, where night-time truck traffic was up almost 40 per cent in the 12 months to last March and 400 per cent since 2006. “VicRoads would not support a curfew on Moore Street as it may divert trucks onto other nearby residential streets,” Ms Liew said. She said VicRoads worked with transport companies and industries to encourage truck drivers to use freeway networks. Using larger trucks, known as high-productivity freight vehicles, would shift container traffic to the freeway network rather than residential roads. Introduction of the larger trucks has been criticised by the state Labor opposition for taking place without community consultation.

At least monitor toxic plant, Briffa urges BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK A DUST-monitoring station should be placed near a toxic soil plant approved in Altona, a Hobsons Bay councillor says. Residents last week reacted with anger and alarm after the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal overturned the council’s refusal and approved a contaminated soil plant on the Dow Chemical site in Kororoit Creek Road. Innova Soil Technology, which expects to start operations early next year, confirmed some contaminated soil would be treated outdoors, not in an enclosed building. Managing director John Lucas said the treatment process would remove ‘‘an extensive range of hydrocarbon contaminants from polluted soil’’. ‘‘From the community’s point of view, the centre will be located in the heart of some of the most polluted sites in Victoria, including 18 in the Hobsons Bay municipality, and it offers a proven and environmentally sound solution,” he said. The site is 950 metres from homes and within 1.5 kilometres of Altona West Kindergarten, Altona P-9 College and

Mount St Joseph Girls’ College. Resident Geoff Mitchelmore, a former chief chemist for the Gas and Fuel Corporation, said: ‘‘Hobsons Bay is now the toxic waste and dust capital of Australia. ‘‘I feel dreadfully disappointed after all the effort we’ve gone to. I feel let down by the EPA and VCAT by this facility being allowed to release toxic dust into the atmosphere of Hobsons Bay.’’ Altona Laverton Historical Society president Peter Weaver, a third-generation Altona resident whose great-grandfather’s land was acquired by Mobil, said Innova’s soil-treatment plans were ‘‘disgusting’’. ‘‘It just seems to be uncovered and susceptible to the wind,’’ he said. Cr Tony Briffa and the Hobsons Bay Residents Association have launched a campaign to continue opposition to the plant. ‘‘It’s unlikely that we will reverse this decision, so the campaign will focus on lobbying the state government to introduce laws regarding the siting and monitoring of facilities to decontaminate soil, and seek the establishment of a permanent dustmonitoring station to the immediate south of the Innova facility,’’ Cr Briffa said.

Thumbs down: Residents, including Cr Tony Briffa (far right), say they will continue to oppose a toxic soil treatment plant in Altona. Picture: Scott McNaughton

Tegan Forder explores what it’s like to live with motor neurone disease (MND) and discovers those with the little known terminal illness don’t want it to define them

A

few years ago, outer western suburbs resident Sylvia Herlihy noticed some words weren’t coming out right. “People at work would ask me to repeat a word as they couldn’t understand.” A year on, the administration worker was referred to a neurologist. It took a further year to reach a diagnosis of MND after a process of elimination and exhaustive medical tests. The news was shattering for the now 60-year-old and her daughters Amy and Alicia. “We all cried, I think, for the first few months. I

couldn’t talk to anyone and my daughters were the ones who told family and friends, which was a huge ask of them,” Herlihy says. She is one of more than 300 Victorians diagnosed with MND. MND Association of Victoria’s records show for the 12 months from June 2011 there were 185 new clients registered with the organisation and 153 deaths. MND is the name given to a group of diseases in which motor neurones progressively die. The nerve cells that control the movement of muscles in the body under conscious control start to weaken and

MND FACTS • An estimated 1500 people have MND in Australia and thousands more families and carers live daily with its effects • MND is a rapidly progressive, terminal neurological disease • There is no known cure and no effective treatment • Each day in Australia two people die of MND • Each day in Australia two people are diagnosed with MND • Average life expectancy after diagnosis is 27 months • People with MND progressively lose the use of their limbs and the ability to speak, swallow and breathe, while their mind and senses usually remain intact

die and with no nerves to activate them, the muscles gradually waste, and paralysis ensues. Average survival time after diagnosis is two to three years, with a small number of people surviving five years or more. “There’s no cure for motor neurone. It’s a terminal disease and there is no remission,” MND Victoria regional adviser for the western metropolitan region Sally Boal says. The only treatment is the medication riluzole, although studies have shown it prolongs life only by several months. Despite the terminal nature of the disease, there is a silent determination by those who are diagnosed with it to just get on with living. MND Victoria family support services manager Julie McConnell says people with MND want to be treated like everyone else. “They don’t want to be their disease.” Joan Uhr-Henry was diagnosed with MND last year but the always-active 83-year-old Footscray resident continues to dedicate her life to helping others. A life member of the Footscray RSL subbranch, she has been an integral part of the service club, serving as secretary, president of the women’s auxiliary and running a day centre. She also gave special rituals at the funerals of servicemen and affiliates until her voice became too slurred. Among her many certificates of recognition are a meritorious service award, and most recently a national award for her service to the RSL. Having lost her husband Fred, Uhr-Henry remains fiercely independent but does rely on support from Williamstown Hospital, the specialist MND team at Calvary Health Care Bethlehem and MND Victoria. With the RSL, they were able to provide Uhr-Henry with an iPad to help her communicate, using an app which converts text to speech.

This support is crucial. As symptoms of MND progress, a feeding tube is inserted in the stomach of sufferers and non-invasive ventilation is used to help with breathing. People with MND also need access to physiotherapists, speech therapy, occupational therapy, dieticians and social workers. McConnell says more money in the disability sector to fund appropriate services would be welcomed. She says it’s difficult to obtain funding for care packages through the Human Services Department for people under 65 and there can be a more than 12-month wait for those over 65. Both groups are at risk of admission to residential care which is usually not their preferred option. Support can come in many forms. Peter Turnbull was diagnosed about two years ago and has been able to access money through a care package to complete some jobs around the house he can no longer do himself. The 54-year-old from Melton wears a brace on his right leg to help him walk and MND Victoria has provided equipment including a recliner, wheelchair, and crutches. A father of three sons, Turnbull first noticed something was wrong when he had trouble keeping a thong on his foot. Thinking it was something to do with his back, Turnbull persevered for about three years before going to a specialist, who immediately referred him to a neurologist. “The day I was diagnosed, I don’t know why,

but as soon as they told me what it was I knew that was it,” Turnbull says. “Something clicked and I thought, this is no good, there is no coming back.” With a pragmatic approach to life, the shop fitter and cabinetmaker continues to work at the business he’s operated for 31 years. “I decided I’d keep working for as long as I can to keep my mind occupied so I’m not sitting around dwelling on it. “Never once have I said, ‘why me?’ I know everyone gets dealt some sort of blow in their life and I didn’t question why it wasn’t someone else.” Studies show people cared for by a multidisciplinary team live better for longer and McConnell says the new National Disability Insurance Scheme, DisabilityCare’s lifelong approach to providing care and support, will benefit those with MND. “An NDIS will turn the way we currently provide disability services on its head. Rather than funding based on historical budget allocations, a funding pool will be based on actual assessment of need,” McConnell says. “An assessment will look beyond the immediate need and across the course of a person’s life.” MND Victoria’s Sally Boal says it’s important for those with MND to maintain a network of friends and family. “We don’t want people to withdraw their support because they’re uneasy about the disease or not sure what to do.” Uhr-Henry’s close friend Pat Franks says Joan has many good friends at the Altona RSL, where she is now a member. “We understand her and we make every effort to support her. If one of us can’t say where she is a search party is prepared to go out. We keep tabs on her. She mightn’t like it but we do.” The thought that whatever she is doing is possibly the last time makes Uhr-Henry keep going. “She keeps setting benchmarks,” Franks says. “I remember her saying ‘I won’t be here for Remembrance Day’ and then it was Christmas Day and then it was something else. It’s an ongoing thing.” This day-to-day approach is also how Sylvia Herlihy copes. She says she’s fortunate she can be independent at the moment and still do things on her own because she knows this won’t always be the case. Now their mother is retired, Alicia and Amy are keen to spend as much time with their ‘best friend’ as possible. The close-knit family took a trip to Borneo this year to get away and relax. Amy says it’s exhausting grieving for something that hasn’t happened yet, and Alicia agrees. “We’ll deal with it when we have to. I think in a way we’re lucky because at least we’ve got time we can spend with mum.” Spending time with family and getting affairs in order is something Turnbull and his family also value. Standing in the kitchen of their comfortable family home, his wife Bernadette says she’s happy now she made the family go for yearly holidays despite her husband’s protests. They’re continuing the tradition and took their youngest son on a trip to Europe last year. “That to me is a million dollars’ worth of memories,” she says.  MND Week runs May 5-11.

These monsters take more road space than seven Toyota Land Cruisers but take much longer to stop and turn. They will be ‘sharing’ our roads during peak traffic periods as there are no restrictions on their hours of use. There is no other country in the world that allows trucks of this length near a major city. There is no comparable city that is building a port in the centre of town. Within 18 months there will be one million more containers passing through the expanded Webb Dock and onto our roads. There is no rail link to the dock. The government’s solution is to inflict monster trucks onto our already choked road system. Any port expansion should be at Geelong or Hastings where existing rail lines can solve the problem of transporting containers and relieve long-suffering road users.

Tears each night as best friends part BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM LANDLORDS are being urged to be more compassionate towards disadvantaged people wanting to keep pets on their property. Melbourne charities are being flooded with calls for help to re-house pets that residents have been forced to give up when their living conditions change. Chantelle Hastings hasn’t asked for much in her 23 years. A ward of the state since she was two, the Braybrook resident survives on a disability pension and says the only friend she needs is her three-year-old champagne labrador-staffy cross, Asthma. She found him on the streets of Footscray about 18 months ago: a neglected, malnourished pet of a group of heroin addicts who lived nearby. Asthma limped down the street after her, tail wagging, until one of the men told her to take him because he was too much responsibility. From that moment, they were inseparable. ‘‘He’s my only family, my heart,’’ Ms Hastings says. ‘‘We’ve been to hell and back.’’ With financial help from the Pet Medical Crisis Fund, a charity that helps disadvantaged people with vet bills, Ms Hastings was able to pay for

pets are allowed. Asthma has been temporarily sent to live at a friend’s house in Caroline Springs, but without any transportation to get there Ms Hastings can see him only once a week. ‘‘I can’t function without him. He’s my only

companion,’’ she says. ‘‘I cry myself to sleep every night and don’t feel safe without him; he came everywhere with me.’’ Pet Crisis Medical Fund founder Jennifer Hunt told the Weekly she encounters cases like Ms Hastings’ every week. Many owners are forced to surrender their pets to organisations like the Lost Dogs Home. Ms Hunt said the bond shared with a pet could be crucial to the survival and well-being of society’s most vulnerable. She called for landlords and government departments to be more understanding.

West’s seniors sign up for aspirin trial ABOUT 100 senior citizens last week met in Altona as part of Australia’s largest medical trial to test whether age-related diseases can be delayed or prevented by aspirin. About 300 people in Melbourne’s west are taking part in the Aspirin in Reducing Events in the Elderly (ASPREE) trial, with a further 300 healthy older people from the western suburbs sought. Monash associate professor Robyn Woods said researchers were investigating whether aspirin could extend lifespan or prevent heart attack, stroke, dementia and certain cancers. She said the trial looked at whether benefits, such as possible delayed mental decline, outweighed risks like increased bleeding. Participants hail from suburbs including Maribyrnong, Hoppers Crossing, Williamstown, Altona, Sunshine and Maidstone. About 16,000 Australians over 70 and 3000 in the US are expected to take part in the trial being conducted in partnership with the Berman Center for Outcomes and Clinical Research in the US.

Age-old question: Researcher Robyn Woods with study participants at Altona Senior Citizens Centre. Picture: Michael Copp

Half the participants receive 100mg of entericcoated aspirin daily and the other half receive a matching placebo (dummy tablet), undergoing health checks for five years. Eleven thousand Australians have enrolled to date. More information: 1800 728 745 or aspree.org

Pedals powered to beat cancer BY BENJAMIN MILLAR WHEN Yarraville nurse Charlene Gatt was approached to sponsor a friend in the Ride to Conquer Cancer this October, she decided to go one better. The self-confessed cycling novice signed up to take part in the 200-kilometre ride and raise funds to help find a cure for cancer. Husband Shaun has also hopped on board and will be joining the ride. “We’re not really riders at all, but we’re training for it,” Ms Gatt says. “We’ve started trying to get as far as we can riding local tracks on the weekend.” They will be joined on the ride in the Let’s Make Cancer History team by close friend Janine Wiggins, a Yarraville teacher and cervical cancer survivor. “She’s just been told after seven years that there’s an excellent chance she’s cured now.”

Ms Gatt says her family has also been touched by cancer: her mother with bowel cancer, older brother with leukaemia, and many other friends and colleagues have also been affected. “I’ve also nursed patients through to their deaths. Having seen it from that side, this was just something I wanted to do.” Each rider has pledged to raise $2500 for the Peter MacCallum Cancer Institute. The two-day Ride to Conquer Cancer will be to and from the Mornington Peninsula on October 26-27. Details and sponsorship: search for ‘Make Cancer History’ at ml13.conquercancer.org.au Teaming up: Charlene and Shaun Gatt are ready for a gruelling ride to support people with cancer like their friend Janine Wiggins.

New batch of leaders is Bulldogs’ goal A NEW Western Bulldogs program is training young people in Melbourne’s western suburbs to be leaders. The Whitten Project will give 40 boys and girls from diverse communities the chance to develop leadership skills by working closely with the club’s leadership team. Launched on Monday in an AFL first, the project involves the club partnering with Maribyrnong, Hobsons May, Moonee Valley, Brimbank and Melton councils as well as the AFL, SportsWest and state government. The 40 year 9 and 10 students were nominated by the councils for showing leadership within their communities. Bulldogs chief executive Simon Garlick said the project showed the power of football to extend beyond the playing field. It was fitting the project was named after club legend Ted Whitten, who played a record 321 VFL games for Footscray, he said. The project squad will take part in an eightmonth program that will include mentoring, leadership sessions with coaches and skills clinics with players. Each young leader will also complete a community leadership project in partnership with their council. — Benjamin Millar

Police try Facebook to catch daubers

Doing time for a cause

HOBSONS Bay police are using social media and calling on people to help identify graffiti taggers. Altona North Sergeant Michael Avery said under a strategy launched on Monday, tags would be posted on Facebook and members would work with the council, schools, residents, transit police and PSOs. “We will be tapping into the local council’s property damage database to match the graffiti tags with those seen in local schools or at train stations,” he said. Photos of some of the most prolific tags went online on Monday at the Hobsons Bay Eyewatch Facebook page. “Over the past two weekends there were 13 instances of graffiti reported to police in the Hobsons Bay area,” Sergeant Avery said. The strategy would help police gather intelligence about damage trends and graffiti hot spots. Graffiti removal costs Hobsons Bay ratepayers more than $100,000 a year. Residents are urged to help police identify taggers by visiting facebook.com/eyewatchhobsonsbaypsa

BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK POINT Cook’s Amanda Pollard and Gladstone Park’s Ann Giantsis don’t know what they’re in for. On May 31, the Altona North Toll employees will lead a gang of about 40 Victorian colleagues going inside the Old Melbourne Gaol for a good cause. They are being locked up for Whitelion’s Bail Out fund-raiser, which exposes workers or ‘inmates’ to life inside. Toll is a partner of Whitelion, a not-for-profit organisation supporting people aged 13-24 whose lives have been affected by abuse, neglect, drug addiction and poverty. Ms Pollard said it cost $200,000 a year to lock up a child. ‘‘I think the whole government and society need to look at the root causes.’’ On arrival at the gaol, Toll staff will be stripped of possessions, processed, herded into an exercise yard and then sentenced to cell time. Each person must raise at least $1000 before they’re released. Toll, which creates career paths for exoffenders under its Second Step program, is

fly, but Choir sings home, sweet home Feathers chickens still go BY BENJAMIN MILLAR BRIDGET a’Beckett is singing the praises of Footscray’s creative community. As the conductor of Footscray Sings, she is excited about the year ahead for the group, now based in permanent new digs at Footscray Community Arts Centre. Ms a’Beckett says the group of about 30 is representative of the broad Footscray community, bringing together a range of cultures to sing anything from popular classics to African gospel songs. “We are a community choir and all about social inclusion; we get together each week and have a good old sing.” Members come from the local area and are aged from their teens up to 82. “The choir has such an open and friendly personality; our rehearsals are always a lot of fun. A couple of weeks ago we had a bit of spontaneous tap-dancing.”

Footscray Sings is one of Creativity Australia’s 14 ‘With One Voice’ choirs. The choir is relishing its new home at the Footscray Community Arts Centre, “right in the heart of the artistic community of Footscray”. “It is just a lovely space. We were a bit homeless for a while; we used to be in the bluestone church but needed to find a new home. This feels like home already.” The group has performed at several local events and is busy preparing for a World Refugee Day performance next month. Ms a’Beckett said the choir was putting out an invitation to Footscray cultural communities to teach their homeland songs as part of the ‘Sing Your Story’ project. Footscray Sings meets from 6-7.15pm on Thursdays and is always seeking new members: visit facebook.com/Footscray Sings

THE owners of three chickens banished from a Footscray property say Maribyrnong Council’s rules against chickens in front yards are too strict. Councillors voted at a April 23 meeting to refuse the return of the chickens to the Eldridge Street property at this stage despite a petition with about 130 signatures seeking their return. Owner Dusk Liney said she and her husband Ben were disappointed at the council refusal to provide an exemption to local laws. “Our take is that the council seems to have rejected our petition due to the chooks being in the front yard, which, it says, is because they detract from the amenity. We disagree.” Ms Liney said the petition showed the Eldridge Street chooks connected a large number of people to the street and to each other. The pair argued the Eldridge Street chickens improved the local amenity of the street by bringing together the community. Cr Cameron McDonald said chickens were great for the neighbourhood. Mayor Catherine Cumming said the welfare of the animals and cleanliness of the area needed to be the primary concern. — Benjamin Millar On song: Bridget a’Beckett says the new choir offers a lot of fun.

Action thriller meets arthouse Director Luc Besson has revelled in an unlimited budget, writes Myke Bartlett here’s usually a certain comfort in these directors’ collections, a consistency of tone or genre. We know what we’re in for. Not so when it comes to the works of French director Luc Besson. The seven films here swerve wildly from taut thrillers and wildlife documentaries to garish space operas, meandering arthouse and monochrome, post-apocalyptic fables. Besson’s eclectic, spectacle-driven approach means that different titles stand out from his oeuvre with each return visit. This time around, for me, it was Subway and The Fifth Element. In some ways, the pair represent opposite poles of his filmmaking. The former sees Besson eschewing the conventions of mainstream cinema, while the latter sees him embrace Hollywood (on his own terms, of course). In Subway, Fred (Christopher Lambert) is a safe-breaker who hides out in the Paris Metro tunnels. Along the way, he falls in love with a

beautiful woman and starts a rock band. Nothing makes any real sense, but there’s a seductive dreamlike quality to proceedings that means we’re in no hurry to return to street level. In The Fifth Element, Besson’s eye for the unlikely is used to embellish a cracking thriller in which Bruce Willis (pictured) and Milla Jovovich face off against intergalactic forces of darkness and Gary Oldman, in one of his most unhinged performances. You can feel the director straining at the limits of the mainstream, while revelling in his unlimited budget. There are dog-headed aliens, high-altitude traffic jams and a bright-blue opera singer. The result is as idiosyncratic as it is entertaining, at once arthouse and action-packed.

Retro Beetle creates smiles Ewan Kennedy road tests Volkswagen’s eye-catching coupe here else to gain public opinions on the latest VW Beetle than at a place called Ferry Road Diner on the Gold Coast. It’s a well-known meeting place on Friday nights for all things retro, mainly those on four wheels. The diner has a car park the size of a drive-in movie theatre. Perfect for those who like to drive and to admire each other’s cars. We rocked up in a new VeeDub Beetle, bright red in colour and sporting a great set of 18-inch twister alloy wheels. And found ourselves sharing parking space with thumping Chevys, A-Model Fords, an Excalibur and a couple of Cadillacs. Our Beetle delighted us in getting more than its fair share of admirers. The next day we went to the supermarket and again the Beetle attracted plenty of lookers . . . all of them smiling, with quite a few wanting to talk to us about the new shape. The first New Beetle looked cute and feminine. The new model (simply called the Beetle, the ‘New’ has gone) has a wider-stance lower roof and longer body that allowed designers to

W

replace cute with curve. The roof extends further back and it’s now a better proportioned car. The benefits include an increase in boot capacity from 209 litres up to 310 litres. Fold the seats down and it leaps to 910 litres. This is a coupe rather than a hatchback so is a car for singles or couples, not really being suited to family use. The cabin will also bring a smile to most people’s faces. The colour matches whatever exterior you select. Volkswagen Beetle for 2013 comes with one power train only at this stage. It’s a 1.4-litre twincharged petrol engine with 118kW of power and 240Nm of torque. It’s a modest-performing car, though you wouldn’t describe it as a slouch. Ride comfort is good on most surfaces and the slightly firm suspension provides the sort of handling that keen drivers will appreciate. A sports coupe it’s not, but the 2013 Beetle will be given the nod by all but full-on revheads. Prices start at $29,990, not including government or dealer delivery charges.

Good looking: Everyone enjoys the shape of the new Volkswagen Beetle.

Jets go from breathtaking to breathless BY LANCE JENKINSON THE Western Jets were running on empty in the last quarter of a 10-point loss to TAC Cup premiership contenders Gippsland Power at Morwell on Sunday. The back and forth nature of a fastflowing game took its toll and the Jets couldn’t hold on after leading by nine points at three-quarter-time. Jets coach Torin Baker told the Weekly it was the most demanding game of the season to date for his players. ‘‘It was the first real game where the guys were out on their feet at the end,’’ he said. ‘‘It went up and down the ground fairly regularly, so some guys at the end of the game for the first time didn’t have a strong finish.’’ The Jets will look back on their slow start as a big factor in the defeat. They conceded six goals to two in the opening quarter and expended too much energy over the next hour to get back into the contest. ‘‘We just made a couple of really poor defensive decisions early in the game,’’ Baker said. ‘‘We didn’t win enough of the ball in the middle of the ground and in the end it’s come back to haunt us.’’ The Power, a one-point loser in last year’s grand final, is one of the benchmark teams. It showed why it’s again a contender with a dominant six-goals-to-three

Roosters cop a cold shoulder

One quarter, they can produce breathtaking football against one of the best sides in the competition; the next, they can go missing. Baker wants to iron out the inconsistencies in his side’s performances. ‘‘We know that we’ve got a group

— Lance Jenkinson

One player leading the way in that respect is Mitch Norton. The pocket rocket booted five goals and continues to deliver the same high standards from week to week. ‘‘He’s had a good, consistent year to date playing as a small forward,’’ Baker said. ‘‘It’s not easy being a real consistent

Gulls survive Didak and late fumble BY DANIEL PAPROTH

ALTONA Roosters are the defending Victorian Rugby League first grade premiers, but that’s not guaranteed a mass of state representatives. Only two of their players, Brad Potae and Ben James, were included in the Victorian squad for the affiliated state senior men’s championships. In a surprise, the North West Wolves (eight), Waverley Panthers (five), Sunbury Tigers (three) and Werribee Bears (thee) all had more representatives than the Roosters. It’s a different story in the Victorian women’s tag team with four Roosters named in the squad, including Anne French, Rachel Hita, Awhina Purnell and Precilla Rahu. Meanwhile, the Altona Roosters opened the new first grade season on Sunday with a 30-26 win over the Doveton Steelers.

that has got a real strong resolve,’’ Baker said. ‘‘Pretty much every game, the game has been in the balance at threequarter-time, so in a way it shows we’re a really competitive squad. ‘‘We certainly need to play more consistent footy for longer periods of the game.’’

IF an opposition player is tucked up on the boundary, his side a goal down, the last person you’d want to see with the footy is Alan Didak. Luckily for the parochial Williamstown crowd, his kick sailed across the face and the Seagulls held on for a sixpoint Victorian Football League win on Sunday. The Collingwood goal sneak was 40 metres out on the sea side of the ground after the Magpies booted three goals in the dying minutes of the quarter to get within six points. It was a thrilling finish to a quality game. For most of the afternoon the teams traded goals, with the lead changing several times. They managed 11 goals between them in the first half, as intense pressure from both sides made freeflowing football an impossibility.

It took acts of desperation, such as at the 12-minute mark of the second, when Anthony Anastasio kept the ball in along the boundary and managed to get it to Lachlan Hunter for a goal before copping a heavy bump. Even when one team looked like getting a run-on it didn’t last. The Seagulls ran coast to coast for two goals in two minutes in the third quarter, but still the Pies came back, and they led by nine points at threequarter-time. Peter German was calm and assertive at the final break as he addressed his players, and the Gulls came out firing. Kirby McConnon, in his senior debut, impressed all afternoon and kicked a running goal early in the last quarter to finish with three. At the other end, Nicholas Sing chased down Collingwood’s Ben Richmond, preventing a certain goal. Leigh Williams was busy for the

Seagulls. After two behinds early in the term and a dropped mark in the goal square, he booted three goals to get the home crowd roaring. Tom Campbell dropped a late mark in the goal square for Williamstown and he would have been sweating as the Magpies stormed home, but they ran out of time.

player in that position, but he’s been super for us. ‘‘He’s a very smart player who has really good speed off the mark, so he’s very hard to stop off the lead, and he’s also very good when the ball hits the ground.’’ Liam Duggan had a breakout game in defence for the Jets. His aerial work and setting up of play out of the back half was a feature. Another defender to have a solid game was Harley Walshe, who limited the impact of dangerous Power forward Josh Scott. Scott booted four goals, but the Power runs a lot of his attack through the key position player and Walshe bettered him in most one-on-ones. The Jets will face Tasmania at Highgate Recreation Reserve on Saturday morning. Meanwhile, Vic Metro and Vic Country will meet in a trial game on Sunday, with Jets stars Harrison King, Jake Greiser, James Sicily and Harley Armstrong in the extended Metro squad.

No stopping Fearons’ rush WILLIAMSTOWN continued on its merry way in the Lacrosse Victoria men’s state league. The Fearons ran riot after quartertime to thrash Caulfield 18-6 on the road at Caulfield Park on Saturday. After a tight opening, which saw the teams end the first period two apiece, the Fearons scored 16 of the last 20 goals. The Fearons, last year’s title winners, are one of two unbeaten sides. Footscray led Surrey Park after one period at Mont Albert Reserve, but the Scray could manage only three goals in the final three terms and lost 12-6. In division 1, Altona buried Malvern early with eight first-half goals in a 12-8 victory. In the women’s state league, Williamstown edged out Eastside 10-7 at Greenwich Reserve. — Lance Jenkinson
