5 8 Keep up graffiti intolerance: mayor 55 Cleanup time: From left, police officers Florentino Dela Cruz, Natalie Remedios and Sonia Graham are on the lookout for those indulging in graffiti.
A SHARP rise in graffiti and vandalism in and around Footscray has spurred one of the biggest crackdowns on the problem. Maribyrnong Council, Footscray police and the Department of Justice have joined forces to tackle the spread of illegal graffiti in public spaces and on private property. Under a new program, offenders will clean up illegal graffiti as part of their court-imposed community work orders. Footscray police’s Inspector Tony Long said reports of graffiti had been dropping year to year, indicating people felt there was no point reporting it.
“Graffiti has become a really big problem in Maribyrnong. You only have to walk around Maribyrnong, and Footscray in particular, to see how much graffiti is around,” he said. “In the past 12 months we’ve had 57 reports of graffiti and you would probably find that in one street. “We know there are all kinds of graffiti gangs working in the area. The difficulty is they’re very transient.” Inspector Long said the stereotype that only young offenders were responsible was only part of the picture. Prosecutions showed offenders were aged up to their 40s. “We are catching offenders for it and the CCTV system has been quite successful in doing that.”
The council is considering increasing its $130,500 graffiti removal budget this year by $100,000 in a three-month blitz to remove all obvious illegal graffiti from public and private property. Mayor Catherine Cumming said the amount of graffiti across the municipality had skyrocketed. “We want to work with people who have been victims of graffiti. ‘‘We want people to know that by keeping properties clean you deter graffitists,” she said. “Cr Michael Clarke makes the point that you don’t see this in Toorak, you don’t see this in South Yarra. We’ve just become so used to it, people don’t bother reporting it as a crime.”

Cr Cumming said graffiti attracted more graffiti and getting the area back to a clean slate offered the best chance to keep it that way. Department of Justice graffiti removal program manager Jason MacLeod told last week’s council community and services committee meeting that in Maribyrnong 25,000 square metres of graffiti had been removed under the program. The community is being urged to report illegal graffiti to council or police as soon as it appears. Victims may be entitled to a free graffiti removal kit or have it removed by the program.

‘People person’ Hawkins touts Palmer, PM By Benjamin Millar
I’m a people person and there is an opportunity here to get involved.” Mr Hawkins’ key concerns are rising unemployment and utility prices, healthcare cuts and homelessness. “The climate tax would be changed and things with refugees need to be done better.” Hawkins remains circumspect on the performance of Prime Minister Julia Gillard, the number one ticket holder at the Bulldogs since 2010. “She’s trying her best for the country. I’m not going to say she is doing a good job or a bad job,
but I think she’s having a crack. If people are happy now, then they can continue to support Julia Gillard or Tony Abbott. All we are doing is giving people another option, so if they are not happy they can come over to the Palmer United Party.” Mr Palmer intends to field candidates in every House of Representative seat and a Senate team in each state and territory. He said Hawkins and Michael were not only great Australian sporting heroes, “they are great Australians’’. ‘‘Both are proven leaders.’’
BULLDOGS legend Doug Hawkins wants voters to look beyond his football career when considering his suitability as a candidate in the September federal election. Hawkins, 53, has joined former world champion boxer Barry Michael as part of the Victorian Senate team of Clive Palmer’s Palmer United Party. He told the Weekly he was inspired by the billionaire miner’s passion for the country’s future and would be
happy to see him as Australia’s next prime minister. “He’s very passionate about Australia, passionate about the people of Australia and I’m happy to be involved,” Mr Hawkins said. “He doesn’t have to be doing this; it’s about helping the country.” The Braybrook-raised former Footscray Bulldogs captain, who played more than 300 games for the AFL club, says feedback on his foray into politics has been mixed. “I don’t make out I know everything about politics, but I know my strengths.

Intersection talk is cheap: council wants cash MARIBYRNONG Council is calling on VicRoads to help fix the municipality’s most dangerous intersection for cyclists. Council has written to raise safety issues on Footscray’s Parker and Whitehall streets, the site of five serious crashes in the past five years. “Despite much discussion with VicRoads on appropriate safety treatment options over the past three years no funding has been provided,” the letter stated. The intersection is part of the main route for western suburbs cyclists travelling into the city. Bike counts show about 300
cyclists use the intersection every morning peak period, an average of one cyclist every 24 seconds. More than 4200 trucks use Whitehall Street each weekday. The council argues better safety would encourage more cyclists and cut down on road congestion. VicRoads, which has responsibility for Whitehall Street, has previously submitted a funding proposal for bicycle/pedestrian-operated signals and line marking. Regional director Patricia Liew said VicRoads had investigated cyclist demand and safety at the intersection, considering the number
including construction of a bridge over the Tottenham rail line and industrial land west of the rail reserve. Western suburbs Greens MP Colleen Hartland said she had been calling on the government for more than a year to fix the Parker and Whitehall streets intersection. “A major bike route and the trucking route intersecting with no traffic signals – it’s the most dangerous intersection in the western suburbs, which shows up in the crash statistics with many cyclists being hit,” Ms Hartland said
of cyclists, traffic volumes, traffic and cycle interactions and a crash analysis. “As a result, VicRoads is finalising designs for a project to address demand and safety at this intersection for consideration for funding in a future program, including the 201314 program.” VicRoads’ cycling and pedestrian budget for the north west metropolitan region, which includes Maribyrnong, was $150,000 in 2012-13. $5.3 million has been allocated for the continuation of the Federation Trail to Fogarty Avenue in Yarraville,

It also prioritises completion of the Kororoit Creek path from Federation Trail to Port Phillip Bay and a link from Federation Trail at Williamstown Road to the Bay Trail in Hyde Street. Support is also needed for cyclists to get through Westgate Golf Course and over Stony Creek, it stated. Mayor Angela Altair told last week’s council meeting the bicycle strategy was expected to be out for public exhibition after Tuesday. The council’s budget is expected to be adopted on the same day.

CYCLISTS and pedestrians are calling on Hobsons Bay Council to protect them from trucks and fund infrastructure improvements in the 2013-14 budget. Brendan Dowling, who addressed last week’s council meeting, requested the extension of the Market Street bike path to provide a safe link from Newport railway station to the Hobsons Bay coastal trail. He said trucks were parking over the bike lane in Maddox Road, leaving nowhere for bikes to go. “The most dangerous part of this route is along Maddox Road,” Mr Dowling said. “The heavy traffic and parking of heavy vehicles along the lefthand side of Maddox Road, as you head to Kororoit Creek Road, make it unsafe for younger or less experienced riders. “I would not allow my 10-year-

More than 50 residents objected to the proposal, saying it would be “the end of Altona Meadows as we know it.” The plan was refused by Hobsons Bay Council. The building will be the largest in Altona Meadows.

Weapons seized in store raid By Benjamin Millar
Police hunt flasher
POLICE seized 85 prohibited weapons during a raid on a Highpoint shopping centre store last week. Footscray police were joined by members of the Victoria Police licensing services division in Wednesday’s raid. The haul included imitation AK47s and other machine guns, pistols, revolvers and a throwing axe. A 33-year-old Melbourne East man was interviewed at the scene and will be charged on summons with offences including unlawfully bringing prohibited weapons into Victoria, unlawfully displaying prohibited weapons for sale, possessing imitation firearms, possessing a prohibited weapon other than an imitation firearm, and offences relating to the recording
and sale of prohibited weapons. Footscray’s Inspector Tony Long said the raid was sparked by a recent confrontation between police and a youth who was carrying an imitation gun. “Attending armed police obviously took the matter very seriously. Luckily, the incident ended peacefully,” he said. “I am very concerned about the number of these imitation weapons in our community. There are legitimate collectors; however, they need to be licensed, as does anyone selling these types of items.” Inspector Long warned that imitation weapons in the wrong hands could be used to commit crime. “Imitation weapons of this type are a real problem. They are made of metal and wood, the actions work and they look and feel like a real firearm,” he said.
Match mates: Ryan Griffen helps Bradley Mollison from annecto Yarraville.
’Dog scores for equality WESTERN Bulldogs star Ryan Griffen joined people with a disability from annecto Yarraville last week to create the match day banner for Sunday’s clash with Collingwood. The banners of both clubs featured a “Footy fans support equality and inclusion for people of all abilities” message to mark the inaugural Robert Rose Cup. Supported by law firm Slater & Gordon, the annual fixture
highlights the contribution of people with a disability to the game and community. Griffen said: “Nothing symbolises the coming together of footy and community more than the tradition of making the match day banner. The boys and I are really looking forward to running out on the day and are proud to be associated with the match that recognises the achievements of people with a disability.”
A man has exposed himself to a number of people, including children, in and around Footscray. Police believe a woman walking her dog through Hansen Reserve on April 22 was the first victim. They said the man also approached a 12-year-old boy on Ormond Road, Footscray, on May 25, and made lewd comments. On May 31, he allegedly exposed himself to two girls, aged seven and nine, on Wattle Street about 3.30pm. Police said that on June 4, he followed a woman on Roberts Street and grabbed her. He has been described as in his early 20s, Caucasian, and about 180cm tall. Details to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Dig deep and protect Skeleton Creek A COMMUNITY planting day will be held along the banks of Skeleton Creek at Altona Meadows on Sunday. Friends of Skeleton Creek and Altona Bay Wetlands will meet from 1-3pm in Carinza Avenue. Friends secretary Denice Perryman is asking people to meet at the rotunda and barbecue area that was built with help from the Rotary Club. “We formed about 20 years ago to try to protect the creek and its catchments and we have working bees once a month.” The creek starts around Deer Park and winds through Hoppers Crossing and Point Cook before entering Port Phillip Bay. Next to it are the Cheetham Wetlands, a wetland of international importance that attracts birds from as far as Siberia. People are advised to dress for cold, wet weather, and to wear a hat, sunscreen, sturdy shoes and gloves, if possible. Work may include spreading mulch, weeding and watering.

MARIBYRNONG council has vowed to maintain pressure on the state government to fix the truck traffic plaguing residential roads. The council invited Maribyrnong Truck Action Group (MTAG) representatives to address last week’s community and services committee meeting as part of its preparation of a long-term strategy to tackle a projected doubling of freight traffic in the next two decades. MTAG president Samantha McArthur said the health impacts of heavy truck traffic near homes and schools was unacceptable. “One of the ideas we had was calling on the ministers and Premier to come and meet with residents and explain how they can solve our problems,” Ms McArthur said. MTAG secretary Martin Wurt told the meeting the truck action plan, to
build ramps to directly link trucks to the West Gate Freeway, remained the No.1 step in taking up to one million trucks off residential streets each year. The plan was scuttled in last month’s state budget, with the government arguing the proposed east-west road link would negate the need for the project. “That is the best solution. If you think a tunnel coming out under Footscray is a solution, it’s not,” Mr Wurt said. “We have the biggest truck problem in all of Australia and we’re being left behind.” The council is seeking an expansion of the truck curfew program, including a night ban on Moore Street in Footscray and moves to stop the almost 2000 trucks using Yarraville’s Somerville Road daily from doing so during school crossing hours. Council wrote to the government and VicRoads about the curfew, but it has received no formal response.
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.

Celebrations bring Refugee Week to life
By Benjamin Millar
MARIBYRNONG’S reputation for welcoming refugees is on display this week as part of Refugee Week celebrations. Maribyrnong Council set events rolling on Tuesday by launching new ‘welcome booklets’ at an event featuring live performances from Phoenix’s hip-hop group Raw Elements, Ee’da, an inspirational spoken word performer from South East Asia, and Bitsat Seyoum, a local Ethiopian performer. Mayor Catherine Cumming said: “Refugee Week [which ends on Saturday] aims to acknowledge the culturally rich contributions that refugees make to our community and raise awareness about the plight of refugees worldwide.” Other events and activities include a film screening at Footscray library, women’s swim night at Maribyrnong Aquatic Centre and the Refugee Week art competition. The Western Bulldogs are getting into the spirit of Refugee Week, holding the sixth annual CALDplay Cup at Whitten Oval today.
On song: African Australian Community Centre manager Abraham Mamer and jazz musician Tom J Brian live it up.
Fifty newly arrived migrants and refugees from Melbourne’s west are testing their football skills in an Australian rules carnival, with women’s and men’s teams playing. The Bulldogs will also hold the seventh annual citizenship ceremony, with 60 refugees from across the west set to become Australian citizens at Whitten Oval from 2pm on Saturday.

AMBULANCE response times are being kept from the public by a state government hiding a growing crisis, Labor MPs say. But Health Minister David Davis has turned the spotlight on federal health funding cuts and flow-on cuts to patient services. Williamstown MP Wade Noonan told Parliament last week Ambulance Victoria board minutes, released under freedom of information, showed it was ready last year to launch a website revealing ambulance response times for each Victorian local government area. Mr Noonan asked Premier Denis Napthine when the data would be released online, but the Premier sidestepped the question. Footscray MP Marsha Thomson said the government had gagged Ambulance Victoria from publishing
ambulance response times to avoid acknowledging the ambulance crisis. “If Mr Napthine was so proud of how his government was administering Victoria’s ambulance service, he would simply press the button and get this information online,” Ms Thomson said. She said the latest data available under FOI showed response times had worsened for every ambulance station across metropolitan Melbourne. The debate comes as Footscray’s only specialist Mobile Intensive Care Ambulance unit faces eviction from its Eleanor Street site after Ambulance Victoria’s lease expired. The Weekly reported in December that Footscray could lose the unit, which is deployed to serious emergencies so paramedics can reach the scene as soon as possible. The unit has now been granted a two-week extension while new premises are readied in Brooklyn.
Buses will replace trains from ﬁrst service Saturday 29 June to last service Sunday 14 July 2013 on the following lines: • Ballarat line: between Ballarat and Southern Cross Station • Bendigo line: between Bendigo and Southern Cross Station • Sunbury line: between Albion and Footscray railway stations. During this time essential Regional Rail Link construction works will take place. These include major road works on Anderson Road in Sunshine to facilitate the removal of two level crossings, signiﬁcant works at Footscray, West Footscray and Sunshine railway stations, extensive bridge works and substantial track and signalling works.
Further information about planning your journey during this time is available from Public Transport Victoria at ptv.vic.gov.au or by calling 1800 800 007 6am – midnight daily. Thank you for your patience as we work to improve Victoria’s public transport system.

Lord of the
Adam Bull tells Robert Fedele about his journey from the back streets of Laverton to international acclaim.
10 WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE \ June 19, 2013
n a rare moment of downtime, principal artist Adam Bull kindly obliges to a request for a brief tour of the Australian Ballet’s Southbank headquarters. Cheerful and polite, Bull plays the role of gracious host perfectly, zigzagging his way through hallways as though he is proudly showing someone around his family home. At 194 centimetres and with curly blonde locks, he commands attention even when not performing. Today he’s dressed down in grey tracksuit pants and a white singlet, barefoot but for black socks so his precious feet can take a well earned breather. It’s not long before Bull is momentarily stopped in his tracks. ‘‘Good to see you back,’’ whispers a woman passing by, her face flushed with admiration. Bull later unmasks his admirer as Ann Jenner, now a teacher with the ballet company but once a principal ballerina with London’s Royal Ballet and a star of yesteryear. He goes on to explain how he has just returned home after performing the Sydney leg of the company’s latest ballet, Vanguard. The passing pleasantries continue and it quickly becomes evident that Bull is somewhat of a big deal around here. The excursion resumes, passing several identical studio spaces before we stop, peering through a rectangular window at the door numbered six.
Inside is a cluster of teenage boys wearing blue leotards, their taut bodies twisting in unison to the delicate sounds of a piano which is heard but not seen. For Bull, the picture is like looking through a crystal ball transporting him back to his childhood. ‘‘It doesn’t feel that long ago that I was down there as a student,’’ he beams. ‘‘It’s surreal sometimes to take a look back at where you’ve come from. It’s a big journey.’’ He’s often dubbed Australia’s version of Billy Elliot due to his working-class roots. Bull’s story begins in the late 1980s when he was a little tacker at Laverton Primary School. His grade 1 teacher, Janine Kip, the woman he counts as his inspiration, pushed him into ballet. Back then neither Bull, nor his family, knew anything of ballet and he jokes that Kip presumably must have seen him jumping around the staff room. ‘‘She saw something in me and encouraged my family to take me to dance lessons. I don’t know what it was that she saw.’’ Kip remembers Bull as a happy-go-lucky kid who would dance on the playground asphalt and turn heads. ‘‘He was out there in the elements with an extension cord and the school’s PA system and he did Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror with his little chair and sparkly top.’’ Bull would soon take to ballet like a duck to water at Brian Nolan Academy of Dance, studying under the former Australian Ballet member at his Werribee studio. He remembers his old stomping ground being wedged between a mechanic’s workshop and a karate school.

Nolan he recalls as strict but fair, a teacher from the school of hard knocks. ‘‘He was hard. He was a really tough teacher for a little suburban ballet school. But he taught me a lot and got me to a level where I thought, wow, I can do this’.’’ Nolan makes no apologies for his methods and reckons a bit of tough love gets the best out of his pupils. When Bull, a skinny, gawky kid, walked in the door Nolan immediately knew he had something special to work with. Bull took to it ‘‘possessed’’, he says, and had a unique demeanour, carrying himself with elegance and pride. ‘‘I knew from his very first class at seven years old that he was going to be good. By the following year I remember boasting to teachers at ballet competitions that he was potentially that good that he would be a principal with the Australian Ballet one day. The teachers laughed at me, but I knew what I was talking about.’’ Still, even the naturals need prodding. Nolan spent 11 years with Bull, honing his craft for a distant tomorrow, right up until he waved goodbye and set off for the Australian Ballet at age 17. Nolan counts himself lucky to have taught Bull then Valerie Tereshchenko, also with the Australian Ballet, and now Milei Lee, an eightyear-old prodigy he believes will outshine them all. ‘‘It is said that we only get one extraordinary student in our lifetime and I thought after Adam there would not be any more but I was fortunate,’’ Nolan says. ‘‘They all have that special thing about them that one can’t describe and put into words that

is envied by all around them.’’ Bull leapt across to the Australian Ballet in his teens and has remained a staple of the company, which is held in high regard worldwide. The tight-knit group of 70-odd dancers performs about 180 shows a year. In 2008, Bull was promoted to the highest ballet rank in the country, becoming a principal artist with the Australian Ballet. Even now, five years on, he’s still both chuffed and humbled by the title. ‘‘You never rest and go ‘yeah I’ve made it!’. Where I am now, people go, ‘Oh, my God, you’re a principal of the Australian ballet’. But I don’t sit back and say I’ve done all the hard work. Every day it gets harder and harder.’’ True to his word, Bull’s schedule seems like the very definition of hard work. It is mid-morning and he’s already taking a break from pilates and stretching in the upstairs gym. There’s a ballet class from 10.30am to noon, rehearsals from noon to 2.30pm, then lunch and more rehearsals until well into the evening. This routine takes place six days a week and intensifies even further during a performance’s season – not that dancers always have the luxury of concentrating on one performance at a time. Right now Bull is rolling out Vanguard while also preparing for Swan Lake just around the corner. Is it worth it? ‘‘It’s too much work for it not to be,’’ Bull retorts. ‘‘If you didn’t love it you couldn’t put your body through what we do.’’
With the company, he has travelled overseas regularly, performing in Paris, London, Tokyo, and a week in New York last year when the company performed Swan Lake. Bull is reluctant to pluck out a highlight from life on the road but says the New York show stands out. ‘’My mum had never seen me dance overseas before. She came over and saw me. It was really emotional. The audience response, as soon as the curtains went down, they all went crazy.’’ Asked about the feeling on stage, Bull says each performance produces a different vibe. ‘‘I still get nervous. Twenty years later, before every show, I still get butterflies. There’s always doubts in your head. But once you hit the stage you just lose yourself. ‘‘Sometimes you’re on a high and loving it. Sometimes you’re sore and injured, but you still have to go out and deliver to 3000 people.’’ Bull concedes ballet is a cut-throat world but says for the most part dancers are supportive of each other, even though there is always someone who can step into your shoes. ‘‘The pressure comes more from within yourself. You’re always so hard on yourself. You come off stage and you can always do better. You’re never happy. ‘‘Even though they’re all beautiful people [fellow dancers], there is a silent competitiveness. We’re all pushing for the same roles. So there’s all these things behind your shoulder but not in an evil, scary way.’’ For Bull, it is time, not other dancers, with whom he must compete. At 31 he is nearer to the end of his performing career than the beginning, the wear and tear on his body making its presence felt.
‘‘We’re so reliant on our body and being able to be in peak form. And, just like that, anything can go,” he says. ‘‘It’s always in the back of my head. If I have another five years – great. If I have 10, that would be ridiculously good. I take every day as it is and hope it’s not my last.’’ Pressed about the future, Bull reckons coaching at the Australian Ballet wouldn’t be such a bad gig. ‘‘I push it out of my head sometimes, but I do have to think about it. You have made such a commitment at such a young age. It’s all I know. It’s quite scary. ‘‘Just to pass on what I’ve been taught would be a great gift.’’ Outside of ballet, Bull is a travel and adventure junkie. He’s already visited the Antarctic, and the Galapagos Islands are next on the horizon. Who knows where life will take him next. What is certain is that the boy from workingclass Laverton grew up to be a star, as many had predicted. But at home he’s just the same old Adam. ‘‘I’m going to mum and dad’s tonight,’’ he smiles. ‘‘I haven’t seen them since I’ve been back. Mum and dad always put on a spread. She asked last night, ‘What do you want for tea?’ I said, ‘I don’t care, mum. Whatever you’re making is fine’.’’ The Australian Ballet’s new show, Graeme Murphy’s Swan Lake, runs from June 21 to July 1 at the State Theatre, Arts Centre, Melbourne, 100 St Kilda Road.

1200 call for bus policy change BY NICK TOSCANO
replace the 413 and 416 Hoppers Crossing-Laverton buses, which ran at 40-minute intervals. Representatives from the state’s public transport authority will attend a public forum at Sanctuary Lakes Golf Club on Monday, where bus users and traders will voice their concerns about the cancellations. Public Transport Victoria spokeswoman Helen Witton said the bus network had been redrawn to “boost coverage, provide better and more frequent connections with trains, streamline routes and provide services later into the night.” Ms Witton said while some residents had been forced to alter their travel routes, most commuters had been given better bus services. Altona Labor MP Jill Hennessy said she had been “inundated” with complaints. Passion rewarded: Maureen McKnight (left) and Irene Portelli get their medals from horticultural society’s Don Rickerby.

PETITIONS bearing almost 1200 signatures have been tabled in State Parliament as residents of Laverton, Point Cook and Hoppers Crossing continue pressing the government to reverse controversial changes to the suburban bus network. Some Point Cook residents have reported that travel times have doubled since the opening of Williams Landing train station, while Laverton residents are having to take buses and trains to get to supermarkets and a medical centre. Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder announced bus links to the new station in April, including three routes through Point Cook, one from Hoppers Crossing via Wyndham Vale and Truganina and another from Hoppers Crossing via Point Cook. The new routes are running on a 22-minute timetable and

TWO members of Footscray Garden Club have been recognised with one of gardening’s highest honours. The John Pascoe Fawkner medal for “exemplary service to horticulture” was awarded to long-serving members Irene Portelli and Maureen McKnight, who both have a strong passion for gardening. Ms McKnight, who joined the club in 1995, has served as speaker co-ordinator and as steward to Royal Horticultural Society of Victoria’s guest judges during her membership. “It is an honour to receive the award ... since joining, my knowledge has grown and I enjoy being part of the club.” Ms McKnight said that having her flowers featured in other member’s gardens was a highlight. Ms Portelli, club secretary for 19 years, said the award was a “wonderful surprise”.

Out of Africa, a fine feast By Rebecca Miller
he pockets of Melbourne lucky enough to have many residents from different countries in Africa are discovering the joys of that continent’s cuisine in all its diversity. Many African restaurants are now getting rave reviews from food critics and diners are embracing the often pared-back dining settings with their distinctive warmth and charm. But with such a large variety of food eaten throughout Africa’s diverse nations, it’s worth knowing what you’re in for before visiting a restaurant. If you’re eating at a North African restaurant — think Morocco, Algeria and Egypt — you may have couscous as part of your meal as this is the main diet staple. Spices such as saffron, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and cloves may also be incorporated into the dishes. When visiting a Central African restaurant, with food from Rwanda, Chad and the Democratic Republic of Congo, dishes may contain plantain (member of the banana family) and cassava
(starchy vegetable, resembles potato), the main ingredients for these areas. An East African restaurant, incorporating recipes from Sudan, Ethiopia and Kenya, will major on grains and vegetables. Dishes such as ugali — a starchy, corn-based paste, similar to polenta — is often served with soups and stews. In West African restaurants, representing countries like Ghana, Mauritania and Mali, hot spices are popular. They may be used to flavour yams and cassava. Seafood is eaten often and a common drink is palm wine, made from fermented palm sap which can be sweet or sour. In South Africa, places like Nambia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe, fruits such as papaya, mango and banana are common, and game meat and seafood are also popular. If you’re yet to embrace the foodie heartbeat of Africa, do yourself a favour, spice up your life and get the whole family together to experience something special.

Ten years ago, the forward-thinking business began operations in Williamstown North, employing many locals.

Work of Art Deco in Yarraville This historic house in Williamstown Road is packed with class and potential, writes Ross McGravie
et yourself a fine slice of comfort, style and potential with this lovingly maintained Art Deco residence in Yarraville. Behind neat gardens that include a silver birch, James Stirling hedge and Lorraine Lee roses, the cream clinker-brick dwelling (circa 1947) on a 736-square-metre block is being offered for sale for the first time in 51 years. Built by then-prominent local MP John Marley, the prestigious house of about 24 squares hosted many Labor Party meetings at the time of the DLP split. A patio leads into the grand foyer with stuccoed walls and plate racks. At one end,
behind colonial-style glass doors, is the lounge room, while the sleeping wing is at the other. The lounge includes an LG reverse-cycle airconditioner, chandelier and Vulcan gas heater in the brick fireplace. To the left of the foyer through double doors are three bedrooms (main with box bay window), separate toilet and tiled bathroom with terrazzo floor, bath, shower and freestanding vanity. Doors off the foyer lead to the cosy sitting room, study or fourth bedroom with brick fireplace, dining room also with brick fireplace and – further afield – into the 1960s eat-in kitchen with St George double oven in the
hearth, laminex top and LG reverse-cycle airconditioner. A security door opens to the laundry, covered entertainment area and backyard, which includes a raised vegetable patch, Hills Hoist, 14 camellia trees, three lemon trees, and plum and apple trees.

MOTORING Mitsubishi Mirage
Noisy drive Don’t take things at face value, advises Rod Easdown
What is it? A small car at a small price. What’s in it? A 57-kilowatt 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine with a continuously variable auto. Is it thirsty? I used 7.5 litres per 100 kilometres in the city, 5.5 in the country. The official combined figure is 4.6. Drive away $18,527. (Five-speed manual $16,205).
esearch indicates that the number of car buyers taking test drives is steadily declining. With so many cars now being pretty generic, a bit like fridges and microwaves, that’s entirely understandable. But driving can still make a big difference. Let me present the Mitsubishi Mirage. It’s a terrific showroom car. It looks good. The interior is well finished with pleasant surfaces and no bare metal. The front seats are OK, roominess is good for a car of this size and the cargo space is usable with a 60/40 folding rear seat. The controls are clear, the instruments are fine. It has everything you need including Bluetooth and USB, and the LS ($21,099) gets automatic headlights and wipers, a proximity key and climate control. Sitting in the showroom, you’d happily consider it a proposition. Now drive it. The first thing you discover is how noisy it is. The little 1.2-litre sounds like a diesel, partly because it has three cylinders
overtake smartly. In traffic your foot is not infrequently on the floor. The body integrity is less reassuring than, say, a Mazda 2 or a Hyundai i20, and the Mirage lacks their refinement. You’ll note that the rear brakes are drums while the Mazda and Hyundai get discs. The Mirage leans in tight corners and doesn’t like being hurried, and the ride is firmish, about what you’d expect from something of this size and weight. But the economy is sensational. I also tried a five-speed manual – a bit quicker, and noisier – and its economy is similar to the auto. The Mirage is a bargain. Don’t go by the official prices here. Ask for a deal. At time of writing, they started at $12,990 with $1000 cash back.
Things you didn’t know about motoring and partly because corners have been cut with soundproofing. It’s all mechanical noise, and by the time you reach freeway speeds there’s a heap of road noise in the equation. Another corner has been cut with the audio, which is pretty crook. Rip out and replace the speakers because I doubt they cost Mitsubishi
much. On the road you learn what 57 kilowatts can do and, more importantly, what they can’t. They can’t beat the work truck beside you to the lane merge and they don’t
Jaguar C-types were the first race cars in the world with disc brakes, giving them a huge advantage over all competitors. In the 1953 LeMans they finished first, second and fourth, all because they spent less time slowing down.

52 WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE \ June 19, 2013
A SPIRITED second half carried Williamstown to a 56-point win over Essendon in the VFL on Sunday. It was a crucial win for the Seagulls, moving them into fifth on the ladder with a 6-3 record before a tough month. The Seagulls were strengthened by the return of captain Ben Jolley, playing his first game since late April. But it was the Bombers who got the hot start. Essendon’s talls stretched the Seagulls early, with AFL imports David Hille, Tom Bellchambers and Scott Gumbleton all playing. The Bombers led by five points at quarter-time but managed only one goal in the second quarter to fall behind by five points at half-time. Williamstown won the game in the third quarter, booting six goals as it held Essendon to just three behinds. Seagulls coach Peter German attributed the turnaround to winning the contested ball and a more committed defensive effort. Leading by 32 at the final break, the Seagulls kicked another four in the last to further extend their lead. Lachlan Hunter kicked three
goals, while Cam Lockwood was sensational, as was Brent Prismall. Mark Austin had another impressive game in defence. German said he was impressed by his players’ response. “The first half was a real arm wrestle and, if you look at the stats, both teams were good at putting their opposition under pressure,” German said. “In the second half we were probably able to maintain that better than they were and it was pleasing we were able to manufacture goals from our talls and smalls. “We started winning the contested footy and were able to run harder on the outside and get numbers free.” With Jolley back in the team and the likes of Jamie McNamara and Daniel Pearce playing with the development team, the Seagulls have some impressive depth to guide them through a tough second half of the season. “Ben is the leader of the club and he was great, given he has been out injured. He didn’t miss a beat,” German said. “We know we’ve got some tough games coming up that will define our season in many ways.”

FOOTSCRAY Cycling Club took its revenge on Geelong in the hills to dominate stage one of the seventh annual Challenge Cup. Geelong will need to pull a rabbit out of a hat in the series’ second race for it to claim the cup at the She Oaks in a month’s time. The clubs have each won the cup three times. A chilly southerly, a demanding series of climbs and a wild and fast descent made for challenging racing at the weekend.. Footscray’s road champion Dom Dudkiewicz dominated A grade. With a killer climb and a stomachchurning descent, it was not long before the peloton was broken up. Dudkiewicz and teammate Adam Trewing were in it for the long haul, but Dudkiewicz prevailed in a long and drawn-out sprint. Geelong’s George Vallins was third. In B grade, a strong bunch of riders set out on the first lap, only to see numbers drop lap after lap. Aaron Murray won ahead of Footscray’s Geoff Robertson and Scott McDonald. C grade winner Jake Belsar flew the Geelong flag, beating Footscray riders Igor Tesic and Michael Dam. Adrian Janiszewski won D grade, beating David Lane and Peter Bloink.

CYs stave off Old Boys’ threat
Members play name game
By Lance Jenkinson
THE Western Bulldogs have asked members to provide feedback on the name of their own Victorian Football League team, which inaugurates in 2014. The club has asked supporters through its website to simply vote on whether the team should be called ‘Western’ or ‘Footscray’. The Bulldogs changed their AFL name to Western in 1996 to better represent the greater western suburbs. For the VFL team, which ends its alignment with Williamstown at the end of this season and plays the majority of its games at the Whitten Oval in Footscray, reverting back to the traditional name makes sense for some members. “We want to hear from our members what they think is the best name for our VFL team in 2014 – a team that will see the development of our emerging stars well into the future,” Bulldogs president Peter Gordon said on the club’s website. “I know that to many members Footscray is a name that is close to your hearts, while there is a whole generation that has only known, and will embrace, the Western Bulldogs.”
WILLIAMSTOWN CYMS was wary of the threat posed by the erratic Melbourne High School Old Boys in the Victorian Amateur Football Association division 1. MHSOB showed their unpredictability in Saturday’s game with sample sizes of their best and their worst on the one day. CYs ended up with a 49-point win but experienced a gamut of emotions in doing so. They went from cruise control calmness in the first half to ripyour-hair-out frustration in the third term. An old fashioned, three-quartertime spray from Mathew Montebello
acted as a timely wake-up call for the CYs players, who steadied in the last to run out big winners. “Although they’re sitting second last, they’ve thrown up some interesting results,” Montebello told the Weekly. “They got within 10 points of [ladder leader] Hampton, but they only beat [bottom side] Glen Eira by 10 points. “We sort of identified them as just waiting for an upset, so we were very conscious of them. “The first half I was really happy with our boys, who did everything that was asked, but in the third quarter we fell asleep. We thought they were going to roll over and they came and had a crack and got
to within 16 points of us. Threequarter-time I gave them a firm talking to about what was expected and to the boys’ credit, like a good team should, they responded and pretty quickly made it unattainable for MHSOB to get near us.” Steven Puhar had the enormous task of being the lone ruckman for CYs and thrived on the extra responsibility. The playing assistant coach capped a fine week with best-onground only days after being named in Spotswood’s team of the decade and added to the VAFA’s interleague squad. “His leadership and ability to be able to direct traffic is sensational,” Montebello said. “He’s like another
coach out there on the ground. He just took a lot of marks coming across packs and made sure the ball wasn’t going to go any further than we wanted it to go.” With centre half-forward Ben Gray double and triple teamed at times, the CYs had to find more avenues to goal. Spencer Davis, who a week earlier had been dropped to the reserves for poor form, bobbed up with four goals. “He was really proactive, not just kicking goals but helping set a few up and defensively it was the best he’s been all year,” Montebello said. Gray still managed to kick three goals, as did Chris Cini. For sports results, turn to page 60.

Woodsmen name team of the decade Michael Copp
FOOTSCRAY had to run a finetooth comb over Melbourne University’s water-tight defence to find a way to the try-line in a 12-10 win in the Victorian Rugby Union premier division on Saturday. The Bulldogs eventually discovered the finest of cracks in the defence and got a late try from Joe Masalu for a precious victory that consolidates their place among the top three. Bulldogs coach Junior Naufahu told the Weekly a combination of tough Uni defence and impatient ball security made for a frustrating day on the sidelines. “Melbourne Uni came out to play and came at us pretty strong,” he said. “We just couldn’t get any go forward. Their defence really held us up and it was tough conditions. The try came late in the game, but we’ll take the win.”
Strike a blow: Martin Naufahu landed a crucial conversion for Footscray.
The message from Naufahu to his players at half-time was to treasure time spent in possession. Melbourne Lesa and first half try-scorer Siosiua Ngauamo heeded
the call to be the most damaging in attack. “The whole aim was to hold on to the ball for as long as we can and let them defend to try and wear them
down,” Naufahu said. It was the Bulldogs’ fifth win in a row. The Doggies host fourth placed Moorabbin in a blockbuster at Henry Turner Reserve on Saturday.
Lightning crashes top spot, two snapping at its heels VU-Western Lightning has its nose ahead in the sprint to the Victorian Netball League finish line. The Lightning has a tentative hold on top spot with a month to go in the regular season, but it will have all to play for with local rivals City West Falcons and the persistent Peninsula Waves snapping at is
heels in the race for the minor premiership. Tonight’s blockbuster between the Lightning and the Waves at the State Netball and Hockey Centre could go some way to determining which of these two quality teams will have the luxury of a finals double chance. Lightning coach Matt Hills told
the Weekly that after an inconsistent past month on the court, it’s time for his team to re-capture the steady form that saw them go on an eight game winning run from rounds three to 10. “Looking at it right now, four weeks out, we should make finals, but we’re aiming to make the top
two and it starts against Peninsula,” Hills said. “The next four weeks we’ve got some really challenging games and we’re looking forward to that.” The Lightning returned to the top with a 50-31 win over Geelong Cougars on Wednesday night. — Lance Jenkinson

Altona City proves that Borg possesses a plan for success ALTONA City has undergone major changes to its playing style in the three weeks since Sam Borg was promoted to senior coach of the struggling Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 3 club. City has a new possession-based game that promotes an attacking brand of football. Borg has already noticed a positive shift in attitude from his players and the results have followed with a win in his first game as coach. City was unlucky not to double up against promotion chasers Cairnlea on Saturday, losing 2-1 on the back of a penalty and a counter-attack goal.
“We’re playing more possession football, which the players are enjoying,” Borg told the Weekly. “We’re dominating games now with possession and creating a lot of chances. “We’re still trying to work on it, but there’s some pretty good signs so far of a turnaround.” City has been bolder in its approach, with the left and right backs implored to join the attack. “That’s the difference with my approach to the game,” Borg said. “Before, the full backs were really just defenders and not involved going forward, where I’ve implored them to
drift up the park – my form of defence is attack. “Let’s have possession and maintain the intensity going forward rather than just sitting back and allowing pressure.” The central midfield duo of Matthew McKay and Matthew Italiano are the playmakers that ensure this game style comes together. Spot-on distribution is the key because if they miss targets in the midfield, they will not have as much cover as they had in team structure under former coach Adrian Denys. “We’ve freed them up to be good ball players,” Borg said.
“They have been pivotal.” City got the go-ahead goal against Cairnlea inside 15 minutes. Martin Mintoff weaved around defenders in the box and launched the ball into the top corner. Unfortunately for Mintoff, it would be his last piece of action, hobbling to the bench with a hamstring injury. City had the lion’s share of possession, but hit the post twice and
Flying start saves Jets
A TWO-faced Altona Gators was on the receiving end of a disappointing 80-66 loss to Warrandyte Venom in the Big V Basketball men’s division 1. The Gators started like a house on fire, racing to a commanding 15-point lead by half-time. They had it all their own way in the first half, shooting above 55% in the half. John Wilkinson (16 points and seven rebounds), Shaun Phelan (16 points and five rebounds), Matthew Jon (14 points) and Joey Mausar (10 points and five assists) led the Venom a merry dance in the first half. But it all unravelled for the Gators after half-time. Where they had previously been shutting out the Venom offence, they began leaking points at an alarming rate. The healthy shooting percentages they enjoyed spiralled out of control and the Gators could not buy a basket in the last two periods. It wound up a heavy loss for the Gators and one that will put their Terril group top-four berth at risk. The Gators need to re-group quickly with a tough double header against Southern Peninsula away on Saturday night and Geelong Supercats at home on Sunday. Meanwhile, the two steps forward, one step back season of the Altona Gators continues in the Big V women’s division 1. The Gators suffered a severe blow to their confidence with a 90-60 loss to Latrobe City Energy on their home court at Altona Sports Centre on Sunday. Too much was left to too few for the Gators with Katrina Vogelezang (20 points), Ashley Patterson (15) and Jayne-Maree Sant (12) the stand outs.

Magic slips to ninth
Second-half lull bites Gators
THERE were times on Saturday when the Western Jets were vulnerable. They might have started with a scintillating six-goals-to-one opening term against the Northern Knights in the TAC Cup at Visy Park, but their stranglehold over the game loosened considerably as the game wore on. The Jets managed to hold on for a 15-point win, but coach Torin Baker conceded his side had terms dictated to them by the Knights for lengthy periods. “One of the things that was good is we were able to get off to a great start,” he told the Weekly. “Credit to Northern. They really changed the way the game was being played and ... worked their way back into the contest. “They ensured our defenders were not able to drop off their opponents at any stage. “At the same time, they really crowded our forward line in the second quarter and our guys really struggled finding a target inside 50.” But the Jets isolated key forwards Harrison King and Caleb Sullivan in dangerous one-on-one contests to good effect. They found run and carry from Liam Duggan off half-back and through the middle. Jake Greiser got his hands dirty in the clinches, while David Iaccarino wore down his opponent with tireless run. The pendulum swung back into the favour of the Jets in the third and kept the Knights at arm’s length on the scoreboard. “We were able to right the wrongs from the second quarter,” Baker said.
had a strong penalty shout waved away. The difference between the sides would be Cairnlea star Mustafa Mustafa, who is on the radar of higher-level clubs. Mustafa scored on the counter attack with 20 minutes to go, giving City goalkeeper Pece Talevski no chance to save. City will face North Sunshine Eagles, a team some are predicting could win the premiership this season, at Kim Reserve on Saturday. It will be the biggest test of Borg’s playing style so far.
‘We’re dominating games now with possession and creating a lot of chances.’
Point to prove: Jake Greiser put his hand up for an immediate recall to the Vic Metro side with a stellar performance for the Western Jets.
There were few more important players on the field than 17-year-old Lachlan Hickey. “He’s such a versatile player,” Baker said. “We’ve played him at different stages on a wing, down back and up forward, and he meets every challenge.” Hickey had one of his best games as a half-forward.
The Knights’ defence had no answer, allowing Hickey too much latitude, and he kicked four goals. The Jets handed debuts to Hayden Bray and Joey Blake. They were delighted to see Ajdin Elkasovic make a successful return from a broken wrist. The Jets host Geelong Falcons at Burbank Oval on Saturday.
ALTONA Magic failed to find a resolution to its recent woes on a week’s break from the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 1. The Magic returned to the pitch on Sunday and suffered a similar fate to its three games before the Queen’s Birthday break. They were soundly beaten 2-0 on the road at Sunshine George Cross and tumbled to ninth on the ladder. Only five weeks ago, the Magic was sitting pretty in third spot on the ladder. The Magic will be hoping to recapture its spark when it hosts St Albans Saints at Paisley Park on Sunday. In state league 2, Altona East Phoenix is lurking dangerously close to the relegation positions with just six points from nine games. The Phoenix lost 2-1 to Brunswick City and has gone without a win since April. In state league 4, Williamstown moved into the top five with a 3-2 win over Western Eagles at Gray Reserve. Maribyrnong Greens fell into the bottom two after copping a 3-0 belting from Corio. There were goals aplenty in the state league 5 match between Laverton Park and Sebastopol Vikings, but points were shared in a 3-3 draw. Declan Martin scored a double for Laverton on its trip to St Georges Reserve. One goal was all Altona North needed to beat Greenvale United at Duane Reserve. — Lance Jenkinson
Vikings starve Roos of chances By Lance Jenkinson
‘It was just a good tussle and we just kept chipping away, extending our lead.’ forward Patrick Wiggins to one goal. Magnabosco was one of the Vikings’ best, damaging on the rebound. “He’s one of our leaders. He’s directional and uses the ball well,” Russo said. “He really set up well and delivered, as good half-backs do.” When the dam wall broke, the goals began to flood in for the Vikings. Russo said the delivery into the forward 50 was as good as his side had shown all season. That was reflective on the scoreboard with prime targets Jayden Post (five goals), Mitch Turnbull (three) and Richard Knight (two) feasting on the silver service. Munir El Houli (three), a promising teenager, and Josh Rafferty (two) chimed in with multiples. “It’s probably one of the few times this year that we’ve really rewarded their leads,” Russo said. “‘Posty’, Mitch Turnbull and Richard Knight, they all got their hands on the footy.” The Vikings will square off with Spotswood at McLean Reserve on Saturday in what promises to be a fascinating grand final re-match. The Woodsmen are in good form, after a 50-point win over Port Melbourne Colts. Their past two meetings have resulted in one- and three-point wins for the Vikings. Expect another close encounter on Saturday.
ALTONA was merciless defensively in a 74-point win over Sunshine Kangaroos in the Western Region Football League division 1. The Vikings slammed the door shut on the visitors, allowing just 10 scoring shots in the game. In a hard-fought contest, the Kangaroos won their fair share of the ball but their frustrations mounted with every forward-50 entry that failed to penetrate the defensive wall of Joey Halloran, Joel Magnabosco, Johnathon Hevern and David Barnaby. Vikings captain Josh Russo was full of praise for his teammates. “They’re just blokes you love having on your team,” Russo said. “They probably don’t get pumped up as much as the midfield boys, but they work harder than anyone in the team.” This was billed as one of the matches of the day. The opening three quarters lived up to the hype with the final score not being a true reflection of the hard work the Vikings had to do to set up the win. “It was definitely a tough challenge. They hit us pretty hard,” Russo said. “It was just a good tussle and we just kept chipping away, extending our lead. “In all honesty, it was more so the last quarter where we blew the game open.” The Vikings restricted the Kangaroos’ key players to manageable numbers. Aaron Freeland shared the honours with former AFL star Mitch Hahn, and Halloran kept key Kangaroos
Slick A’s stick it to Waverley
Decision time: Anthony Chiu made all the right moves in a best-on-ground showing for the Altona Vikings.
ALTONA came out breathing fire after the Hockey Victoria men’s premier league mid-season break. The A’s routed Waverley 4-1 in an upset result on the road at the Hedley Hull Field on Saturday. Suddenly, the A’s are just five points outside the top five. The most impressive aspect for coach Ben Guy was not the result but the manner in which it was achieved. “We love winning, but the way we did it was most pleasing,” Guy said. “We played exactly to the game plan. The experienced guys led from the front, and the defensive side from everyone was nearly perfect. “We need to build on this and take a few more scalps in the second half of the season.” The A’s man of the match was goalkeeper Ben Oborne, who repelled the host’s attacks. The A’s scored first on a penalty corner through Chris Coleman. Coleman made it a double from the same situation 10 minutes into the second half. Waverley would not go away, halving the deficit through a screamer of a goal from Luke Young. But this would be the A’s day as Matthew Huf and Tyson Priddle scored to put the icing on the cake. Footscray, meanwhile, made it a western suburbs double with a 3-1 triumph over Toorak-East Malvern. Justin Ellis scored a double for the Bulldogs, while Andrew Monte also bagged a goal in the win. In the women’s premier league, Altona lost 1-0 to Waverley, leaving it second-last on the table. Footscray drew 2-2 with TEM and lost ground on the top four. — Lance Jenkinson
Emotional victory as Roosters rally for their lost mate By Lance Jenkinson SOME days, the outcome of a football match does not matter when placed against a backdrop of a greater cause. At a football club, there can be no greater cause than to salute a fallen mate. Saturday will be fondly remembered in the hearts of every West Footscray official, player and supporter, irrespective of the result, as they paid their respects to former player and vice-president Patrick Joyce. Joyce, who lived and breathed the West Footscray Football Club, was
killed in a car accident during the off season. Some days, you are up against it as a football side, but other days you just know you are going to win it. The Roosters did just that for Joyce, who was their 22nd man on Saturday. They claimed the Patrick Joyce memorial trophy in the reserves, then followed up with a 17-point win over Braybrook in the seniors at Shorten Reserve. “It was an emotional day and the players really responded to that,” Roosters coach Rohan Mackenzie told the Weekly. “It was a good win for the club on
a big day on and off the field.” Joyce’s memory will live on forever more at West Footscray after the Roosters named their change rooms in his honour. The Joyce family ties are strong at the club, with Joyce’s mum Pam volunteering in the canteen. On Saturday, Pam was presented with Joyce’s football jumper and a photo of her son by a teary Roosters president Peter Speakman in a pregame ceremony. West Footscray and Braybrook, held a minute’s silence before the seniors game. Joyce’s death was felt at Braybrook too. Many at the club knew Joyce
through his grandfather, who has been a trainer there. “It’s [the Joyces] a good family around the club to have, so it was tragic what happened,” Mackenzie said. “[Saturday] was a celebration [of Joyce], but it was an emotional one.” In the seniors, the Roosters kept Braybrook at arm’s length all game, leading at every change. The home side was ferocious around the packs, the “most intense” they have been at the contest all season, according to Mackenzie. “The boys really responded. They worked hard and were buggered by the end of the game,” he said.
“They really played for Pam and the Joyce family.” Roosters onballer Mark Speakman was best on ground for his tireless performance in the midfield. Speakman broke through the magical 50 possessions for the game. “He works twice as hard as anyone else on the field and just gets to as many contests as he can,” Mackenzie said. Josh Webster offered plenty of dash out of defence, Ben Douglas returned from an ankle injury and played a negating role on the backline, and Jadyn Trowsdale excited with his run on the wing and half forward. It was the Roosters fourth win of the season.
