Vandalism is again on the agenda following several instances of damage to trees and park furniture in Pier Street. The damage to the tree was extensive and appears to have been done with a chain saw. A park bench in Logan Reserve also had a section cut out and removed. The police have been notiﬁed. It is illegal for residents to prune or remove trees and vegetation from streets and parks. Residents caught damaging trees may be ﬁned or prosecuted. In some instances residents require approval to remove trees on private property. Trees are important to our community. Trees soften harsh streetscapes, add to property values, improve air quality, provide shade in summer, encourage native birds and other wildlife and give a sense of place. If you have concerns with your naturestrip tree or trees in parks, contact the Council on 9932 1000.

Congratulations to Hobsons Bay City Council’s Youth Parliament team who spent last week at Parliament House debating various potential bill topics and working on their leadership and teamwork skills. The Hobsons Bay team, included Aidan Williams, Gabi Duke, Jack Fryer, Sam Martin, Hobsons Bay’s Young Citizen of the Year Oussama Abu-Zeid and Omar Elhawli. This enthusiastic group of young people are highly motivated and passionate about making a positive change to the broader community in which they belong and are always seeking new ways in which to develop their skills, knowledge and networks. The team was extremely successful proposing their bill topic: “Free funded tertiary education for all Victorians”. Their bill was successfully passed through youth parliament and forwarded to the relevant governing body for future consideration. The team was also able to debate and voice opinion on various other proposed bills throughout youth parliament. Members of the team will now be eligible to join the Future Leaders Unite program, a group of young people dedicated to organising events and programs for other young people in Hobsons Bay. For details on programs for local young people, visit www.hobsonsbay. vic.gov.au or ﬁnd Hobsons Bay Youth Services on Facebook.

foreign vessels that may be illegally dumping contaminated water into port waters.” She has written to the EPA expressing concern about “very serious environmental breaches in relation to a vessel named the Sat Nunki that was anchored less than a kilometre off Williamstown beach on Port Phillip Bay”. “I believe that if the waste in question is not cleared up properly, it could hold devastating consequences for the beautiful beaches and surrounding Williamstown and
Altona areas.” But PoMC head of corporate affairs Peter Harry said he had spoken with the ship’s agent for the Sat Nunki to determine the hatchcleaning process. “Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service had rejected the vessel for loading grain due to some loose rust scale on the tank top and on bulkheads in holds 1 and 4. “The vessel proceeded to anchor and the ship’s crew worked in the holds by dry scrapping and sweeping ... no washing of the holds took place. “On return to berth, AQIS passed

A FOREIGN ship crew is suspected of dumping contaminated waste about a kilometre off Williamstown beach in what maritime union officials believe is a regular occurrence in Port Phillip Bay. The International Transport Workers Federation (ITF) and the opposition have warned of potentially devastating environmental consequences for Melbourne’s beaches and coastline. The claims have been denied by the Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC). Last month, Singaporean vessel Sat Nunki, owned by Greek consortium Apex Ship Management, arrived at Melbourne’s Appleton Dock. The ITF said it was turned away after being deemed too unclean to carry grain as its hatches had previously carried phosphate and coal. ITF Australian co-ordinator Dean Summers said he was not confident the Sat Nunki captain cared about the Australian environment. “We believe that if the waste is not cleared up properly, it could hold devastating consequences for the beautiful beaches and surrounding area of Williamstown.’’ He lashed out at the PoMC for “failing to deal with Greek shipowners appropriately”. The ITF says PoMC CEO Stephen Bradford responded to its letter of concern by stating: “The method in which the vessel undertakes the above requirements is a matter for the vessel or shipping line.” Opposition environment spokeswoman Natalie Hutchins said Mr Bradford’s response to the ITF was inadequate. “In other words, the PoMC does not take governance responsibility for

Elders launch week of vision
Aboriginal elders launched NAIDOC Week with a smoking ceremony by Dean Stewart (pictured) at Altona on Monday. Aboriginal elder, member of the stolen generation and local resident Peter Letting, pictured with the traditional flag, also attended the ceremony. NAIDOC, an acronym for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee, originated with the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920s seeking to raise awareness of the status and treatment of indigenous Australians. This year’s NAIDOC Week theme is “We value the vision: Yirrkala bark petitions 1963”. Fifty years ago, the Yolngu people of Yirrkala in northeast Arnhem Land sent two bark petitions to Federal Parliament, protesting the government’s granting of mining rights on their land. An exhibition by indigenous artist Ande K Terare is at Altona’s Joel Gallery until July 21.
High-density upgrade bid for Bradmill site By Benjamin Millar A HIGHER-density project than that currently approved by a planning panel and Maribyrnong council has been flagged for the $1 billion redevelopment of the former Bradmill site in Yarraville. Melbourne-based family business DeGroup is selling 24.3 hectares of the 26-hectare denim factory site, which has been rezoned to allow up to 1500 new dwellings in a mix of townhouses and apartment blocks of up to six storeys. The inner-Melbourne development site could house more than 7000 new
residents and is expected to sell for more than $100 million. Company chief Colin DeLutis said he originally intended to develop the whole project but had received a number of approaches for the site in the past five years. “While several attractive approaches have been tabled in recent years, we just didn’t feel the time was right,” he said. “Nor was the site ready due to the need for a zoning change and an initial, smaller-scale development approval.” The renamed Yarraville Gardens site is bounded by Francis Street,
‘Offshore developers and ... local institutional investors are seeing the consistent population growth.’ McIvor Reserve and the Newport freight railway line. CBRE’s Mark Wizel, who is marketing the site, said there was “significant scope” to increase the development’s density. “The rarity of 60 acres of residential-zoned land six kilometres from the Melbourne CBD simply cannot be understated,” he said. Buyers are being sought nationally
Living with MS? Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system, often striking young adults at a time when they’re leading busy lives. It’s estimated that more than 23,000 Australians are living with MS, with three out of every four people diagnosed being women. While a cure is yet to be found, there are a number of treatments available, including oral and injectable therapies that could help manage certain forms of the disease. If you’re living with MS, talk to your doctor about treatment options that might be right for you.

and internationally, with heavy interest expected from Asian developers. “Offshore developers and, more recently, local institutional developers are seeing the consistent population growth of Melbourne and adjusting their strategies accordingly,” Mr Wizel said. DeGroup will retain the business-zoned land, building a 10,000-square-metre neighbourhood shopping centre anchored by Coles or Woolworths and a new 800-squaremetre Yarraville library. The sell-off could set a new record for Melbourne residential infill sites,
with Mr De Lutis tipping it might eclipse the $120 million sale of the Amcor site in Alphington in June. The Westco Jeans founder and former Carlton Football Club vicepresident reportedly bought the Bradmill site from receivers in 2002 for $7 million, despite suggestions that the market value was more than $13 million. The site was rezoned from industrial to residential and mixeduse in 2011 after approval was granted by an independent planning panel and the Maribyrnong council. Any increase in density would require the council’s approval.

RESIDENTS are moving out of Brooklyn after experiencing 100 days of dust levels usually associated with the Black Saturday bushfires. The state opposition is urging the government to put resources into reversing dust and odour problems in the state’s most polluted suburb. Last Thursday, Brooklyn Residents Action Group members tied 100 black balloons on a dustmonitoring station in the heart of Brooklyn’s residential area. Ukraine-born couple Yaroslav and Olexandra Koptchak said they were unaware of Brooklyn’s pollution problem when they moved to Heather Avenue five years ago. Now, concerned for the health of their eight-month-old son Robert, they are reconsidering their future in the suburb. If they leave their car outside for a day it becomes covered in dust. Some nights the stench is so horrendous they can’t sleep. “It’s a combination, I would say, of decomposed animal bodies and some sort of meat processing smell,” Mr Koptchak said. Rosemary Pivelli, who has lived in Nolan Avenue for 50 years, has put her house on the market but prospective buyers ask what the foul smell is. ‘‘I can’t take it. Sometimes I throw up. We can’t take it any more. Something’s got to be done.” Kevin Dunn, who has lived in Almond Avenue for nearly 20 years, said there had always been a smell but the problem had worsened in the past five years to the point it was a daily occurrence. “When the Environmental Protection Authority had their crackdown there was an
ENVIRONMENTAL authorities have ordered a Brooklyn company to extinguish a fire burning in a former landfill site. The underground fire is burning in Transpacific Industries Group’s closed Market Road landfill site. ‘‘Hot spots’’ were detected on June 29 during routine landfill gas management planning work. The company notified the Metropolitan Fire Brigade and Environment Protection Authority, but issued a statement saying that it does not believe the community is at risk. “While the cause of the increased temperatures is not known at this stage, we are undertaking further testing on the site to determine the best course of action,” the company said. Underground landfill fires are most commonly caused by an increase in oxygen levels. EPA environmental regulation director Chris Webb labelled the fire a “disappointing development” after years of community and regulatory effort to rid the area of dust and odour. “This community has suffered enough,” he said. Mr Webb said the company had been given notice that it must put out the fire. EPA spokeswoman Tanya O’Shea said landfill fires could generally be avoided through appropriate site management. “Landfill fires are common in sites which have undergone either gas extraction or those which are not properly rehabilitated,” she said. Smoke and odour may be generated as part of extinguishing the fire. Report pollution to EPA on 1300 EPA Vic (1300 372 842).

Together again: Daniel Scott is over the moon to be reunited with Doug.
‘I knew the council had it wrong and he wasn’t a restricted breed. He’s the most playful and loving dog you could meet’ said. “He’s a playful dog without a mean bone in his body. He has never attacked or bitten anybody yet was sentenced to death for the presumption by council officers that he could be a restricted breed based on his appearance.” Last week, after weeks of evidence from council officers, Dr Ayerbe and Dr Lowe, VCAT decided Doug
was a cross-breed great dane and American Staffordshire terrier. In his finding, VCAT senior member Ian Proctor said the council officer in charge of the case was relatively inexperienced compared to doctors Ayerbe and Lowe, but her opinions were based on the best observations she could make with her training and experience. “The dog is too tall and . . . expert evidence simply does not support a finding that Doug is a restricted-breed dog.” Mr Proctor said Doug appeared to be a mature dog and his height of 63cm was 19 per cent higher than the maximum height of a pit bull. Moonee Valley council chief
executive officer Neville Smith said the council investigated Doug after a complaint from a resident. “[The] council also had the dog assessed by an independent dog expert, who agreed with the council’s assessment,” he said. Mr Smith said the issue of restricted breeds was complex, but the council had to be diligent to ensure public safety. “With these types of situations, council is caught in the middle between pet owners and state government legislation about restricted breeds, which we are legally required to enforce,” he said. Mr Smith said the council would welcome a review of the legislation.

A WILLIAMSTOWN solicitor has saved a dog from death row and has had a western suburbs council fork out more than $50,000 in legal fees for its owner. Moonee Valley council had wrongly accused Strathmore resident Daniel Scott’s dog of being a restricted-breed American pit bull. Mr Scott, 27, told the Weekly he was devastated when his six-monthold puppy, Doug, was seized by the council in April last year after escaping from his backyard. Following a VCAT hearing, Doug was deemed a restricted breed and faced being put down. But Mr Scott refused to give up while spending the next 18 months visiting Doug on death row. “Doug is my best mate,” he said. “I knew the council had it wrong and he wasn’t a restricted breed. He’s the most playful and loving dog you could meet. He was my responsibility and every time I saw him it enforced in me I had to fight for his life.” Unable to afford legal costs for a Supreme Court appeal, Mr Scott sought the services of the Barristers Animal Welfare Panel and Williamstown solicitor Michael Faltermaier. After a successful appeal, a second VCAT hearing was held last month and Mr Faltermaier, who took the case for free, sought the assistance of animal experts, including vet John Ayerbe and renowned dog judge and breeder David Lowe. The experts examined Doug through a series of tests, including the colour of his coat, height and behaviour, and determined he was not an American pit bull. “From all the evidence we gathered it was clear this dog was not a restricted breed,” Mr Faltermaier

Plaza upgrade challenges traders By Brendan Bale
Coles worker rues ‘family’ loss
of foot traffic. It’s big business, it’s very big business.” Businesses dependent on runoff trade from Coles and Kmart will face new short-term challenges because of the area’s transformation, according to Maribyrnong deputy mayor Grant Miles. “This will have an obvious shortterm effect on traders, but it’s also an opportunity for food and grocery retailers to change shoppers’ habits,” he said. Despite the challenges, Cr Miles is confident of long-term prosperity for the area. “Being a trader myself, I am involved in the local business association, and the mood is positive. The renovation can be described as short-term pain for long-term gain.”
FOOTSCRAY traders expect to face financial strain during the $45 million redevelopment of Footscray Plaza by Banco Group. The year-long building closure, beginning this week, will cause major disruption to the flow of shoppers to surrounding businesses and put pressure on bottom lines, according to local business owners. The redesigned building is expected to reopen next June and will retain Coles and Kmart as its main shopping attractions while adding five levels of apartments as part of the No. 18 Albert construction atop the existing infrastructure. The apartments are expected to be completed by next September. Footscray Asian Business Association president Binh Le is concerned about the closure and its negative effect on his and other businesses in the area. The half-owner of the Little Saigon shopping precinct in central Footscray is also concerned the lack of parking in the Footscray CBD will be made worse by the closure. “We are trying to get the state government and council to build a multi-level car park for the area. Without that, businesses around here will struggle,” Mr Le said. “Over the past 10 years, car parking spots in the area have been reduced by over 1000.” Owner of nearby Metro West Kebab House, Walied Haouli, shares Mr Le’s concerns but remains positive about the long-term future of his business. “There’s light at the end of the tunnel for those who can survive. You have 230 apartments going up and the renovations they are doing downstairs. It’s going to bring a lot
The transformation: Top, the Footscray Plaza as it is now; above, an artist’s impression of how it will look when work is completed.
FOR Footscray single mother Joanna Pitsilos (pictured), her Coles colleagues have been her family after the loss of her sister to illness last year. After a grief-filled year, her woes continue with her workplace Coles Footscray closing this week for a yearlong plaza redevelopment, forcing her to leave behind bonds forged with people she considers her family. “You basically form a family; the connection [with workmates] becomes stronger because you see them more frequently,” she said. A Coles worker for almost 15 years, including seven at the Footscray store, Ms Pitsilos is disappointed at being moved to Coles’ Yarraville store. She has financial concerns about the job transition. “It’s a lot of stress. Being a single parent [with two children], you need to think about your income day by day,” she said. “How are you going to work out your bills? What sacrifices will I have to make to feed my family? It’s all very frustrating.” Coles spokeswoman Evie Ridgway said the company was doing all it could to help workers with the transition. “We are redeploying all Coles team members to other nearby Coles stores and team members have been given preference to which store is suitable for them to work.”

AN Altona trader says he no longer feels safe in Australia after a customer and worker were allegedly threatened at knifepoint last week. Jack Wei, whose Harrington Square FoodWorks supermarket and bottleshop have been repeatedly targeted by crooks, said a knife was pulled on a customer and worker after they pursued a group of teenagers accused of stealing a slab of Jim Beam mix cans from the cool room. The incident happened about 6.30pm on Monday last week. Police have arrested and charged a 16-year-old Werribee teenager with theft and assault following the incident. It was the latest in a string of break-ins and hold-ups at the store. On May 10, the shop was held up by a gunman about 8pm. A shop attendant was closing up when a man armed with what appeared to be a sawn-off shotgun entered via a drive-through roller door and rifled through every till.
Mr Wei last week told the Weekly he had been robbed so often it had become “normal”. “Robbers are anywhere. In Australia, robbers are everywhere now, not just here,” he said. “People want to take money the easy way. If you don’t punish them harder, you won’t educate them. “Australia, it’s unsafe now. It’s a good country, but now it happens everywhere.” Since the near-fatal bashing of Harrington Square bookshop owner Jill Brookes on July 20 last year, police have completed a safety audit of the square. Hobsons Bay council allocated $50,000 in this year’s budget towards safety upgrades. The council is expected to lobby the justice department for funding. Protective services officers are yet to be deployed to Westona train station, which is directly opposite the shop and shopping centre.
Just too much: Jack Wei wants tougher laws to deter robbers.

ALP clash looms as school head steps up BY NICK TOSCANO and LAURA LITTLE
MELANIE FAITH DOVE
A PRESLECTION clash is brewing over who will be named ALP candidate for Lalor, with Julia Gillard announcing support for grassroots campaigner and school principal Joanne Ryan. In a letter to local ALP members, Ms Gillard asked for “the most serious consideration” to be given to Ms Ryan, a Werribee resident. She said Ms Ryan, 51, had played a lead role in the successful 1998 campaign against a planned toxic dump in Werribee and had a strong commitment to education reform. “Joanne will be well-placed to continue my passion for better education for Australia’s children,” Ms Gillard said. “Joanne has both my respect and my support.” Ms Gillard’s pick puts her at odds with Maribyrnong MP Bill Shorten’s supported candidate, Kimberley Kitching, who sources say is also expected to nominate. Ms Kitching is manager of the
Health Services Union’s state branch and a former Melbourne City councillor. Ms Ryan, who is not aligned to any Labor faction, told the Weekly she would nominate for Lalor, and said receiving Ms Gillard’s support was “incredibly humbling”. “I’ve decided to nominate because Julia has done such a superb job as our local member and we need an excellent local member to continue in that sense,” Ms Ryan said. Ms Ryan has not renewed her ALP membership since 2010. She has requested the party to make an exception and let her go ahead with the nomination. The Moonee Valley Primary School principal has held senior roles at Laverton Secondary and Galvin Park Secondary (now Wyndham Central). Like Ms Gillard, Ms Ryan said improving education outcomes was the most pressing issue in Lalor. Public relations executive and former ALP campaign manager Melissa Horne has also been tipped as a nominee. She declined to comment.
Likely for Lalor: Werribee’s Joanne Ryan, with sons Michael, Anthony and James Patterson.

Welfare centres at breaking point A HOUSING affordability crisis is forcing western suburbs residents deeper into poverty and a greater risk of homelessness, according to a Footscray welfare service. A steep rise in rental costs and spiralling utilities prices are pushing already over-stretched welfare agencies to breaking point. Wesley Mission crisis and homelessness services manager Janene Evans said the Footscray service had experienced a big increase in the number of people seeking help – now more than 8000 per year, up 30 per cent on last year. Wesley Mission provides basic food items and shower facilities for people experiencing homelessness or who can’t afford utilities. Ms Evans said it was important people at risk of homelessness spoke to a service before they fell out of the
housing market. The affordability crisis is being felt nationwide, with peak housing bodies and leading welfare agencies calling on all political parties to make housing a top priority issue at the coming federal election. Australian Council of Social Service deputy chief executive Tessa Boyd-Caine said priorities included lifting rent assistance and boosting funding for homelessness services. “Another urgent priority is to increase Newstart which has failed to keep up with community living standards.” Acting Victorian Council of Social Service chief executive Carolyn Atkins wants a stronger focus on early intervention to ensure people get support before hardship hits. “The long-term lack of investment in community and social infrastructure means that organisations already operating above capacity are left to fill the service gaps.”

Renters, know your repair rights: tenant
Just too much: Lauren Sarti is sick of a constant struggle of getting problems fixed at her rental property.
A YARRAVILLE mother is warning people entering rental agreements to ensure they understand their rights and responsibilities over repairs. Lauren Sarti moved into her home in the centre of Yarraville 18 months ago but says it has been a constant struggle to have the landlord and real estate agents fix overdue problems inherited with the house. “The entire courtyard is constantly flooded and there have been other issues such as exposed asbestos in the bathroom,” she said. The single mother of eight-monthold twins said she was assured by the agents when her babies were first born that all outstanding repairs would be made. Issues have included flooding of the bathroom and toilet, an outdoor pergola in danger of caving in and a gas system leaking gas. Ms Sarti said she had heard the previous tenant left the property due to repairs not being carried out. Greg Hocking Real Estate, which manages the property, did not return calls by time of publication. — Benjamin Millar

No action ‘to bring’ gridlock
Truck upgrade for bin collection
BY BENJAMIN MILLaR
A FLEET of 10 new waste and recycling trucks has taken to Maribyrnong streets as Remondis Australia begins work as the council’s waste contractor. Bin collection days and services will remain the same but the council hopes the new contractor will help improve recycling rates. Council infrastructure and engineering director Ian Butterworth said there might be changes to bin collection times. The council has signed a sevenyear deal with the company with an option to extend by a further three years. The trucks are larger and have improved technology, including a feature that closes bin lids on their return to the nature strip or footpath. Mr Butterworth expects some teething troubles but hopes they will be short-lived. “If by some chance your neighbour’s bins are collected and yours are missed, please call our customer service people,” he said.
TRAFFIC jams choking western suburbs roads will worsen without work beginning on an urgent solution, according to a new state opposition campaign targeting congestion. Visiting Footscray last week, opposition leader Daniel Andrews said state government plans to work on the Eastern Freeway at the expense of a second major river crossing would deliver decades of gridlock for motorists in the west. “Under the Liberals, the east-west project has been shelved in favour of an east-east project that ignores congestion problems in the city’s inner west and threatens Victoria’s economic growth, with commuters and freight carriers losing time in traffic,” he said. Mr Andrews was joined by state MPs Marsha Thomson, Wade Noonan and Khalil Eideh in launching a billboard campaign calling on the government to tackle congestion in the west.
Listen to us: Western suburbs Labor MPs Wade Noonan, Marsha Thomson and Khalil Eideh deliver their message.
The campaign comes as a secret draft of the government’s Victorian freight plan, obtained by Fairfax Media, predicts a surge in freight truck trips on Melbourne’s roads from 290,000 a day to almost
650,000 within three decades. Ms Thomson said the area was choking under the congestion of trucks and traffic. Mr Noonan called on Premier Denis Nathine to reinstate Labor’s
Truck Action Plan to reduce truck traffic in residential inner west streets. The Fix West Congestion campaign also features a petition at FixWestCongestion.com.au

Old and new: The Oriental Hotel as it is today, and an artist’s impression of a six-storey development proposed by Evolve Development.
Hotel hearing finds 1854 link By Goya Dmytryshchak WILLIAMSTOWN residents have claimed a small win in the battle to save Victoria’s oldest three-storey brick hotel. Residents and Hobsons Bay council are fighting a developer who wants to demolish the Oriental Hotel, on the corner of Nelson Place and
Anne Street, and build a six-storey, 83-dwelling apartment block. Following a 10-day major case hearing, the developer conceded the building dates back to 1854. Evolve Development had previously claimed the pub dated back to 1871. But the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal last Friday heard that surveyor
measurements in 1854 were taken in links, not feet, supporting the case of the council and residents. In April, Evolve fenced off the hotel and said it posed a risk to the public. The hearing, which combines six separate applications, ran over time and was adjourned to October. Evolve’s development of the entire Port Phillip Woollen Mill site could
add 2000 people to Williamstown’s population. Nearly 3000 people opposed to the mill development have signed a “pledge to defend Williamstown”, which has been presented to Planning Minister Matthew Guy. Evolve’s application to build a 137-dwelling tower on the mill site will be heard at VCAT in September.

From 1 July, Australia’s current support system for people living with disability is being progressively replaced with DisabilityCare Australia. This new scheme will help provide a better quality of life for Australians with a significant and permanent disability, and for their families and carers too.
What’s new about DisabilityCare Australia? DisabilityCare Australia is a new way of funding personalised support for people with disability. As well as looking at a person’s immediate needs, it will take a lifelong approach and enable people with disability to have choice and control over their supports. It will focus on early intervention, recognising that timely support can minimise the impact of a disability on individuals, families and carers. Assistance will be provided at the right time, rather than only once people reach crisis.
Who is eligible? DisabilityCare Australia will help people who have a significant and permanent disability and who need assistance with everyday activities. This includes people whose disabilities are attributed to intellectual, cognitive, neurological, sensory, or physical impairment, or a psychiatric condition.
Will I lose my current support? No. Your current arrangements will stay in place until you have met DisabilityCare Australia to discuss your needs.
Will it affect my Disability Support Pension? No. Your Disability Support Pension will not be affected.
When does it all begin? DisabilityCare Australia is being rolled out in stages because it is a big change to the current system. Locations that start from July 2013 Barwon region of Victoria ............... People aged 0-64 Hunter region of NSW....................... People aged 0-64 South Australia ................................ Children aged 0-14 Tasmania .............................. Young people aged 15-24 Locations that start from July 2014 ACT.......................................................... People aged 0-64 Barkly region of NT............................. People aged 0-64 From July 2016, DisabilityCare Australia will continue to extend to more locations and age groups around Australia, including Queensland.

Starke says she would never want someone who didn’t want to marry them to conduct the ceremony – whether a priest or civil celebrant.
Altona North celebrant Libby Williams believes a marriage should simply be between two people who love each other. “A marriage is a marriage is a marriage,” laughs Williams, who happens to be bisexual. She says 65 per cent of marriages are civil functions, not religious ones. “One of the things the government promotes about marriage is facilitating a stable society, you know, historically. I think if that’s the essence of a healthy, stable society and [helps] families to grow and so forth, well, I just think, why
not? You don’t need to be married, obviously, to live together or have a family, but it’s an opportunity for people, before their family and friends, to declare their love to each other. “I think, often, gay couples have had a lot of challenges in their lives so they’re even more determined to be together – you know, it might have been harder for them to find the one.” Rona Goold, head of Australia’s Civil Celebrations Network says: “Let’s give couples the freedom of their preferred style of ceremony and not believe the myth that legal marriage is religious. Even Oliver Cromwell forbade marriage in churches for that reason. We don’t need to be so ungenerous of spirit. Fair is fair.”
Yarraville’s Lisa Stingel met her girlfriend Will Starke as a nurse in Daylesford Hospital when a mutual friend came in as a patient. When Starke came out “many years ago”, society was still arguing about whether a lesbian or gay person could see their partner in hospital. Stingel eventually asked Starke out to dinner and the rest is history. “When people talk about marriage equality and anything like that, I forget they’re talking about us because our lives are just so normal,” says Stingel. “I don’t see myself as different to anybody else; the only difference for me is that at the end of the night I go to bed with a woman and not a man.” The two haven’t talked about whether they will get married, but they want the option. Stingel has two daughters from a previous partnership but never married. “Not until we got together and I fell in love and not until I felt this is something I’m actually feeling quite passionate about [did I think about marriage] for the first time,” Stingel says. “I want the right to be able to ask Will to marry me and spend the rest of her life with me.” They don’t want the option of a civil union, or what Starke likens Peter Ellis (front) and Wayne Elliott to a “skim milk marriage”.

Keilor East Airport West Uniting Church’s Reverend Samasoni Nafatali is ready to conduct weddings for people of any sexual orientation or gender identity – as soon as the hierarchy and government say ‘yes’. The Samoan minister is not preaching to the converted among his flock and reiterates that he can’t speak for the church or congregation
but only himself. “It’s an unfortunate situation because the church has come a long way. Through these past 2000 years there have been issues the church has been trying to deal with. And the message the church is trying to convey is to help people liberate, help people feel free to live life to the full, and that’s a message Jesus was trying to convey: that people may have life, receive life and live it to the full.” Nafatali says it wasn’t long ago that blacks, women and children weren’t recognised as having equal rights. “If we come back to the women’s issue, women have been liberated from the Western point of view. They have the right to live life to the full. I think helping people liberate and be free is part of the gospel.”
Goya Dmytryshchak speaks to people at the heart of Australia’s marriage equality debate.
ustralia’s meant to be the lucky country, the country of the fair go, says Melton’s Peter Ellis. But somewhere along the line we dropped the ball. Ellis’s half-Aboriginal family, and friends – both straight and gay – are longing for him and his partner Wayne Elliott to marry. Ellis, whose mother is Aboriginal and who works in Aboriginal health, had an AnglicanWesleyan upbringing. “I certainly have a lot of love for God and a lot of love for my faith and it’s something that I feel I need to express as a Christian – that something I would want to do is marry my partner. “I was brought up with a Labor Party background. My grandmother was a mayoress of Broadmeadows and my family is very Labor-oriented. We don’t want gay marriage to be the political football it is now because it’s not a Labor or a Liberal or a Greens issue; it’s a social issue that everybody can own. “I’ve got a wonderful heterosexual family and friends who are married and have kids and they are waiting for us to have that big day ... they want to be a part of it.” Ellis says he wouldn’t jump on a plane to a country like Canada or Argentina where samesex marriage is legal. “I don’t live there, I live here,” he says. “I’m a proud Aboriginal person and I want to celebrate my relationship with my loved ones in my own country, not someone else’s country. “When you think back to the social justice movement for black fellas back in the ’60s and ’70s, then, absolutely, gay people are still experiencing that level of discrimination. “A lot of the argument against gay marriage is about their religious ideal of what marriage is about ... but I know many people who are not necessarily religious people who still get married. Athiests can get married.” Ellis says a civil union is like “half a marriage, kind of a marriage”, that doesn’t afford equality when it came to decisions about things like medical power of attorney, wills and probate and adoptions laws. Elliott, whose three children from a previous marriage are also waiting for him to marry, said equality would send the right message to young people who had not come out.

Egypt’s hopes shared in Newport
Labor hopeful in holy reflection

ON the eve of a new era for Egypt last week, Muslims gathered at a preRamadan conference in Newport. Lina Hassan, a Broadmeadowsbased aged-care worker with Victorian Arabic Social Services, said everyone had been awaiting news with bated breath. Last Thursday, Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi was overthrown and replaced by a judge, Adli Mansour. Ms Hassan, who is of Lebanese background and whose husband is of Egyptian descent, said the community was hopeful but anxious about Mr Morsi’s ousting. “We were so worried about what’s happening in Egypt but it’s now a relief,’’ she said. “But we feel now the Morsi government being gone will give more hope to the Egyptian community and we all pray and hope that this will be the right move for it.’’ Australian Arabic Women’s Association president Laila Houli
Peace hopes: Lina Hassan and imam Abdullah Al Hawari deliver their messages of goodwill.
told Muslims last week that the conference was to foster “tolerance and appreciation for all religious and cultural beliefs. We should always reflect on the positive side of how society lives and functions in such a multicultural aspect’’.
Newport Mosque Iman Abdullah Al Hawari said the Muslim holy month of fasting was a time for piety, thankfulness and wisdom. “Be aware of every word you say,’’ he said. “If you have a number of bad habits you have accumulated
over the whole year, this is the time to get rid of them.” Muslims were urged to thank Allah by doing good deeds such as donating to the poor, doing community work and raising their children well.
LABOR’S candidate for the federal seat of Gellibrand, Tim Watts, told Muslims gathered at Thursday’s preRamadan conference in Newport he would ponder what the holy month meant for a prospective politician. “I will go away from today and meditate on the meaning of Ramadan for a politician coming up to an election,” he said. “A period of reflecting on piety and not lying and cheating and backstabbing is a good reminder for a budding politician.” Mr Watts said his side of the family had Anglican roots and had been in Australia for six generations or “what you might think of as old Australians”. His wife, Joyce, migrated to Australia from China. “She came to Australia when she was 10, so my children are both seventh-generation and second- generation Australians,’’ Mr Watts said. “So for me it’s very personally important that we live in a society of mutual respect and understanding for religious and cultural diversity.”

The idea for the project was born when Nguyen, whose parents escaped the Vietnam War and found refuge in Australia, stumbled across a piece of furniture with a label that read “European Labour Only”. After doing some research she discovered the label represented the White Australia policy. Nguyen’s immediate challenge is raising funds so the project can get off the ground.

Describing herself as a story collector and artist, the 28-year-old has embarked on an innovative project titled The Two Chairs, in which she plans to use art to create open and frank discussion about racism. The project centres on building two chairs, one yellow and the other white, then encouraging people to plonk themselves down and begin talking about the issue. Conversations will be recorded and stored for future generations. The chairs have been taken to sites around Footscray, including the Colour Box Studio, Footscray Community Arts Centre and various cafes, to engage people about the issue of racism. People have been asked what racism means to them and, “What do you think are the roots of racism?” Nguyen’s dream is to eventually take the chairs on the road and across the country to exhibitions, festivals and workshops, raising

Enjoy a fine vintage A charming retro facade in a top location hides delightfully modern comforts and conveniences, writes Ross McGravie
iscerning buyers can expect a warm welcome when returning to this transformed 1950s weatherboard in one of Spotswood’s finest streets. Behind a vergola-style front deck and rose garden on a 695-square-metre block, the double-fronted delight has a matching tandem carport. A period-style security door accesses the foyer, which has the added storage convenience of a broom cupboard. To the left is the lounge room, which is highlighted by a period fireplace with timber mantel and marble surround. Colonial-style french doors lead into the music room and the adjoining carpeted gym. To the right of the foyer are two bedrooms with built-in robes, with the front bedroom including timber casement windows, a wall of fitted robes and roman blinds. Standing the test of time, the renovated
1990s bathroom includes a vanity made from recycled Baltic pine floorboards, large Fowler spa, gold-plated Dorf taps, various brass shelving and a toilet with wooden seat. It complements the laundry with two walls of storage and a second bathroom with vanity, shower, toilet and Italian glass tiles. But it is the rear extension, completed 16 years ago, which provides the wow factor. With 5.5-metre ceilings and 12-metre oregon beams rescued from factories on the Crown casino site, the space is also enhanced by exposed brick walls, a Coonara Classic wood heater, ceiling fans and cedar doors. The kauri pine kitchen in the corner is another example of the property’s excellence. Complemented by Kashmiri white granite benchtops, display cabinets and an island bench, the kitchen has Miele stainless-steel appliances (four-element induction cooktop, gas wok, two wall ovens and integrated
dishwasher), Qasair rangehood, appliance cupboard, plate rails, wine rack, space for a double fridge, and a Panasonic reverse-cycle airconditioner. Beyond the meals area is a library under the staircase. It ascends to a loft storage space which could be used as a mezzanine study or extra bedroom. Two bedrooms with robes and ceiling fan are also behind the exposed brick wall. French doors open to a full-width deck, curved brick path, shed, silver birches, Mexican orange blossom, David Austin roses, rosemary, James Stirling pittosporum hedge, and irises. Position is another highlight, with schools (St Margaret Mary’s, Spotswood Primary, Wembley Primary, bus to Westbourne Grammar) on call, along with childcare centres, parkland, sports facilities, train station, bus and Hudson Road shops (including the award-winning Candied bakery), Motorino Pizza, Duchess of Spotswood cafe, a florist and jazz venue.

On a good thing Rod Easdown goes bush in an Outback
had an unusual experience a few days ago: I filled up a Subaru at a diesel pump. Subaru has been making cars for 60 years, most of them with all-wheel-drive, yet it has not had a diesel motor until now. This first attempt displays attention to detail typical of the brand. It’s a ripper. This is major news for anyone who has ever fantasised wistfully about the big trip – you know, the daydream about telling the boss to shove it, throwing the bare necessities in the car and heading off on an odyssey around this wide, brown land with only the vaguest of schedules in mind. For anyone contemplating such an epic, this car is a sensible proposition. I may have only had it for a week but I racked some serious kilometres out where the crows fly backwards and fuel prices are measured in arms and legs. The Outback is a wagon with raised suspension and a bit of extra underbody protection. It’s all-wheel-drive but it doesn’t have a low-range gearbox like the serious
‘It’s comfy, reasonably quiet and, best of all, extremely economical’ contenders. So it’s more an all-road vehicle than an off-road vehicle. This will suit most big trippers. You can drive clear around the country without leaving the bitumen these days, but if you want to see the Bungle Bungles or Wolf Creek, or explore the tracks in Kakadu or drive along the beach on Fraser Island, the Subaru has surprising ability. And for the other 99 per cent of the time, it’s comfy, reasonably quiet and, bestof all, extremely economical. That’s because it’s more a car than a four-wheel-drive. It’s humane, easy and relaxed. OK, the suspension is a little tighter than normal, making the ride a bit firmer than a typical car, but it rides quite nicely. It handles like a car too, without a top-heavy feeling. The steering doesn’t get vague when you push

Subaru Outback diesel What is it? A great way to go bush. What’s in it? A 110-kilowatt, four-cylinder turbo diesel with a continuously variable auto. Is it thirsty? I used 9.5 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 6.6 in the country. The official combined figure is 6.5.
through tight corners and the boot’s loading height is lower than an SUV despite the fullsize spare. The diesel motor is on par with anything from Europe. It’s nicely flexible and winds up quickly for highway overtaking, the continuously variable transmission making excellent use of the motor’s power and torque. You’ll hear that distinctive clatter of a diesel outside, but in the cabin it’s quiet. There’s a reasonable audio system, good equipment levels and generous interior space. What a good thing this is.

Gulls put on a Jolley good show By Daniel Paproth WATCHING Williamstown without Ben Jolley is an odd sight. The skipper has barely missed a beat since joining the club in 2008. “I think I’d missed one game in my time at Williamstown,” says Jolley, now three games back following a month-long lay-off after injuring his shoulder in round four. He could be forgiven for impatience given the Seagulls won three on the trot, but Jolley says sitting games out with injury is more frustrating when your side is losing. “It was frustrating to a certain extent but the team was going well during those weeks,” he says. “When they’re winning you think, well it doesn’t really matter if I was out there or not. “But against Port Melbourne when we lost I thought I could have had an impact.” Jolley returned two weeks later against Essendon and the Seagulls haven’t lost since. They are third, two games behind ladder-leader Geelong and with

the league’s healthiest percentage. But Jolley and Williamstown aren’t getting comfortable. It has been a highly unpredictable season, that has seen the powerful Port Melbourne lose five games – after losing just six in the previous two seasons – and Collingwood and Frankston rise off the bottom of the ladder. Even Sandringham and Coburg, the only sides above winless Bendigo, are capable of causing upsets. “Losing another one means that we fall back and the pack catches up. We’re under no illusions that we can fall back,’’ Jolley says. “This year the depth of the competition has shown that on any given day most of the sides can be formidable.” The Seagulls are right in the hunt for an elusive VFL flag. Since its 2003 premiership, Williamstown has lost a grand final (2011), lost five preliminary finals (2006-08, 10, 12), a semi final (2009) and missed finals twice (2004-05). Jolley says the missed chances don’t weigh on the minds of the playing group.

Reds rue draw with lowly Hornets
Outplayed Jets find a way
By Lance Jenkinson
A NEVER-say-die Western Jets came back from a precarious position to roll Gippsland Power by two points in a TAC Cup cliffhanger at Preston City Oval on Sunday. The Jets were comprehensively outplayed in the first half and stared a 17-point deficit in the face at half time. Jets coach Torin Baker admitted to having doubt over his side’s chances of getting back in the game. “I think everyone at the ground thought we were in a fair bit of trouble,” he said. “They really dominated the second quarter and in many ways could’ve put us away.” Three goals in modern footy can be erased quickly. The Power left the door open with their inaccurate kicking in the second term, just three goals from 11 scoring shots. The Jets, aided by a stiff breeze in the third quarter, got their noses in front by three quarter time, but it would take something special in the last term to hold on for a remarkable win. “That last quarter was superb against the wind. We won the clearances and it was really hard to score down that end and we were able to manufacture a couple of important goals,” Baker said. “We weren’t very composed with the footy against the wind in the second quarter, so that was pretty much the message: we needed to show a bit more composure with the footy, we needed to work a little bit slower into the wind and try and get some good scoring opportunities. To the boys’ credit, they did it really well.” The midfield brigade, minus injured Jake Greiser and the rested James Sicily, came to the fore at the crunch. David Iaccarino, Brett Bewley and Daniel O’Leary stood up in the absence of the Vic Metro stars. “The onballers just dragged us over the line with their ability to win clearance after clearance in that last quarter,” Baker said. “Had the ball been going the other way, our defenders would’ve been under the hammer against the wind. We were able to get enough of the ball going forward to create enough scoring opportunities.” Iaccarino must be putting a smile on the faces of recruiters lurking in the shadows at Jets games. The Williamstown Juniors product returned to the club under the 19 year old rule this season and has not put a foot wrong. He finds the footy at a good rate because of his ability to get into good positions.
LAVERTON Park struggled to break down the defence of Truganina Hornets and had to settle for a frustrating 1-1 home draw in Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 5 on Saturday. The Reds entered the weekend just three points behind ladder leader Melton Phoenix, but the gap has stretched out to five points and a hefty wad of goal difference after the Phoenix’s incredible 16-1 slaughter of Sunshine Heights Western Tigers. Reds captain Vince De La Plaza told the Weekly his side could illafford to drop two points against a Hornets team in lowly 13th position. “We were disappointed with the result. ‘‘We wanted to win and we needed to win to stay up top. It’s a bit costly because now we’re two games away from Melton.” The signs were pointing to an upset when Truganina came out with a purpose in the first half. The visitors got the first goal on the board through David Dennerley on the back of a Reds defensive error. “It was a bit against the run of play,” De La Plaza said. “We gave the ball away in midfield and they took advantage of it.” The Reds were much better after half time. They had the benefit of marauding left winger Leon Orozco, who was constantly penetrating the front third. “He made a few good crosses from runs down the left,” De La Plaza said. After a couple of unlucky shots that hit the crossbar, the Reds finally got their equaliser with 25 minutes to go. Ajak Panek latched onto a Mario Caneleo-Veliz corner to head into the back of the net. “It was a relief,” De La Plaza said. “We dominated the game, but they defended well.” Elsewhere, Altona Magic and North Geelong Warriors shared six

goals in a 3-3 draw in the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 1 on Saturday. The Magic had the game in hand at half time, leading by three goals but coughed up the three points in a dismal second half. It was a two-point drop for the seventh-placed Magic, who missed out on the chance to return to the top five. In state league 2, Altona East Phoenix was no match for Avondale Heights, losing 4-0.
It was a better weekend for Yarraville Glory and particularly John Little in state league 3. Yarraville crushed Melbourne University 4-1 on the back of a double hat-trick from Little. Altona City came back from a goal down at half-time to draw 2-2 with promotion contenders Sporting Whittlesea. Williamstown also came from behind for a 3-2 win over Surf Coast in state league 4, but Maribyrnong Greens lost 1-0 to Essendon United.
In state league 5, Melbourne City got all three points on the road, beating Melbourne Tornado 2-1 after goals to Henry Nunez and Cesar Lara Arias. Altona North and Balmoral shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw. In the women’s premier league, Altona City suffered its 12th straight loss in a 5-0 drubbing from top side South Melbourne.

Waves wipe out western clubs’ monopoly IT was a penultimate round to forget for the two finals-bound western suburbs clubs in the Victorian Netball League championship division. City West Falcons managed to cling to a top-two spot despite a 56-44 loss to premiership favourite Peninsula Waves at the State Netball and Hockey Centre on Wednesday
night. The Waves have broken up the monopoly the western clubs had over the championship to claim the minor premiership and hold the allimportant top ranking in the finals. The Falcons were disappointing after quarter time, getting to the cylinder 18 fewer times than their opponents.

Goalshooter Julia Knott was efficient with 37 from 39 attempts for an impressive 95% return. VU-Western Lightning paid a heavy price for a 44-35 defeat to Yarra Valley Grammar Ariels. Barring an incredible turn of events in the last round, the loss has cost the Lightning a double chance in
the finals. Instead, the Lightning will have to plan their assault from the bottom two of the top four, meaning it will be cut throat all the way. Tomorrow night’s last home-andaway round sees the Falcons face the Southern Saints, while Lightning meets Monash University Central.

Rampant kick big Woodsmen to hammer Albion IT was only in the past couple of years that Spotswood and Albion played consecutive hard-fought Western Region Football League division 1 grand finals. The two sides were evenly matched for 24 months, with the Woodsmen denied a premiership four-peat in 2010 but getting one back over Albion a year later. The Woodsmen have remained relevant in the premiership discussions, but Albion’s stay at the
top was short lived. On Saturday, the Woodsmen showed how far Albion has fallen, winning by a massive 155 points at McLean Reserve. Mick Lewis was outstanding for the Woodsmen, booting six goals in a best-on-ground performance. The Woodsmen had 13 individual goalkickers, including four goals to player-coach Chris O’Keefe. North Footscray was not the pushover that Altona might have expected at Hansen Reserve.
The bottom-of-the-ladder Devils managed 20 scoring shots against the reigning premier, with Sam Kater and Sam Denby-Blake in the thick of the action. The Vikings had too much class, with the experience of captain Josh Russo and five goals to Jayden Post too much for the spirited Devils to handle. Deer Park’s win streak came to an end at 11 with a shock 45-point loss to Sunshine Kangaroos. In division 2, Parkside had a

surprisingly easy time of it against Caroline Springs, winning by 124 points. West Footscray escaped with a narrow eight-point win over winless Laverton Magpies. The improving Magpies will be kicking themselves for letting the game slip after leading by 22 points at three-quarter time. — Lance Jenkinson For the WRFL scoreboard, turn to page 53.
Eagles beat off double barrage By Lance Jenkinson
YOUTH-driven YarravilleSeddon didn’t cower to the physical demands of Port Melbourne Colts, returning from the graveyard that is Murphy Reserve with its best win since promotion to the Western Region Football League division 1. The Eagles were crunched at every contest and sprayed verbally by a parochial home crowd but just ploughed away for four tense quarters to record a thrilling fourpoint win. Eagles coach David Connell was proud of the level-headed nature of his players in a game that could have spilled over at any point. “The way our blokes held their heads and focused the whole game was probably the reason we got over the line,” he told the Weekly. “We spoke about it at half time that the most disciplined side that stuck to the task was going to get over the line. “I think they gave away six 50-metre penalties on the day and we didn’t give away one. “Our younger blokes stood up to the physical stuff that Port Colts were dishing up and the verbal stuff the crowd were dishing up was quite telling.” It was a neck-and-neck encounter with little to separate the sides at every change. The Colts held leads of seven points at quarter time and three at the half, but the Eagles were with them every step of the way. The Eagles took control with a four-goal-to-one third term to lead by 15 at the start of the last term. As expected, the Colts would make one final push, which ultimately came up short. A key moment was a behindthe-play free kick, compounded by a 50-metre penalty for back chat,

which gifted Steven D’Orazio a goal for the Eagles at a crucial time. Connell says it was the first time all season that his team had stuck to the task for the full four quarters. “There’s periods in games where we’re right up with the good sides, but we’re just not good enough for long enough,” he said. “It was a pretty big focus for us to put in a four-quarter performance and it was probably the first time for
the season that we’ve been able to do that.’’ Jack Collins, still eligible for under-18s, impressed in a run-with role on the dangerous Brad Sutcliffe. “He was captain of our under-18s last year and won our under-18s best and fairest,” Connell said. “He’s played from round one, hasn’t missed a game, and that was unexpected at the start of the year. “The last 10 minutes of the game
as a young kid, really standing up under a lot of physical pressure ... we thought he was really good.” Firebrand midfielder Ibrahim Atik produced his most disciplined and effective game of the year. Jason Harmes and Gareth Newton were superb in defence, while Clint Foreman was dangerous in attack with four goals. The Eagles’ third win sees them jump up to eighth on the ladder.
ALTONA Roosters have received much-needed donations to aid the rebuilding of the club after fire burnt down the clubrooms at Loft Reserve during summer. The Men of League [MOL] foundation and the rugby league club’s major sponsor, Millers, Inn have kicked in $10,000 each. “It helps us out a lot to try and get us equipment for the kids and help the club rebuild,” Roosters president Brandon Taonoa said. “The foundation normally does not do stuff like that, but because of the situation we were in, they wanted to help out.” The Men of League is run by former NRL players and usually donates to individuals going through hardship. Injured Roosters player Mano Thompson was one of the recipients of a donation from the foundation after he sustained a broken neck in a training accident. “They help out players who get injured through rugby league,” Taonoa said. “It has helped his family out to cover with medical expenses and help his recovery.” The Roosters’ 19 teams, ranging from under-6 to seniors, have been using portable facilities provided by the Hobsons Bay council. This has ensured the club did not have to turn away up to 120 new members who have signed on since last season. “We’ve gone from 300 players last year up to 420 this year,” Taonoa said. “I’m not sure if it’s because of what happened with the fire or if it’s our good reputation. “The Hobsons Bay council has been good to us, getting portable buildings ... it’s sort of like it’s been business as normal – the clubrooms in the background, the portables are there and training still goes ahead.” Asked if in times of adversity a club becomes more united, Taonoa said: “It’s definitely brought us closer together.” Turbulent times off the field have not seen the Roosters suffer on it. They are on track to reach the Victorian Rugby League first grade finals and defend last year’s premiership. The Roosters pummelled the Craigieburn Phoenix 56-10 at Hothlyn Reserve on Saturday to move into double chance contention. “It was an important win because there’s only two points between the top five teams,” Taonoa said. “That gives us good percentage and we’ve gone from fourth to third now.” — Lance Jenkinson
