Have your say on domestic animals

Sunday, 7th April

Hobsons Bay residents are invited to have their say on the Council’s Domestic Animal Management Plan and help shape animal services in the municipality.

We need you to help us develop the plan by filling out an online survey or writing to us with your thoughts. It’s important the community identifies issues for particular attention, such as dog off-leash areas, dogs on beaches, cats on private property and restricted breed dogs, to ensure our animal management service focuses on the issues that the community considers to be most important. The survey is available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ DomesticAnimalManagementPlan Comments close on Monday, 8th April.

When women in the Labor Party who I’ve always looked up to, like Nicola Roxon and Joan Kirner, are supporting you, that’s a really motivating thing. ‘‘I think we need fierce campaigners. We need people who are going to be willing to get out there and give it a redhot go . . . we need to be reaching out to the community and telling our story and telling the people why Labor values are good values and why Labor members of parliament are good for the west.’’

Ms Hall’s stiffest challenge may prove to be a tight preselection battle, especially if Mr Conroy throws his support behind Mr Watts. The Telstra executive, 31, lives in Fitzroy but plans to move to Footscray with his family before the September 14 poll. Mr Watts moved to dispel concerns that he was not a local candidate and would be preselected only with the weight of Senator Conroy’s backing. “I’m proud to have worked with Stephen in the past; I think people will see

I have a good track record,” he said. Acknowledging the anointed Gellibrand candidate would be replacing a highprofile female member in the nation’s second-safest seat, Mr Watts said it was important that the ALP elevate more women into Parliament but noted they were replacing men in other seats. He said the prospect of a Tony Abbott government was a threat to quality education, harmonious multiculturalism and job security in the western suburbs. “They are my three major priorities.”

NICOLA Roxon has thrown her support behind a former staffer, Katie Hall, to replace her in the federal seat of Gellibrand. The move appears to put her at odds with Labor Senate leader Stephen Conroy, who is understood to be backing his former adviser Tim Watts. Ms Hall, who lives with her husband in West Footscray, is 30 — nearly the same age Ms Roxon was when elected. The former attorney-general, who is quitting politics to spend more time with her young daughter, said it was healthy for two influential Labor figures to be backing different candidates for preselection. ‘‘It won’t surprise anyone as a person who’s always encouraged women to run for office that I am supporting Katie Hall because she is a strong and capable woman. She’s a good campaigner and she’s local, and all of those things are very important for this region. ‘‘I think it’s important, where we have the opportunity, to select women, and in this instance where we have a woman with enormous potential, a lot of talent, and is local, that’s going to be a combination that is difficult to beat. ‘‘Of course, Stephen has influence within his community, as do I, and I think the fact that two senior Labor people can be backing different candidates is actually a healthy sign in the party that there are good choices to be made.’’ Ms Hall, who works in corporate affairs for the City of Melbourne, said Ms Roxon had been a great mentor. ‘‘I think, and I think a lot of people think, that it’s important that the next generation of female Labor activists step up and say, I care about my community, I’m committed to Labor values and I

Bashing a toll still being paid BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK JILL Brookes’ sister, perhaps subconsciously, often runs her fingers through her hair as she speaks. Her little sister’s head was caved in by an unknown assailant in the small Altona bookshop in which we sit. On the afternoon of July 20, police believe a man entered West Side Stories in Harrington Square and bashed Ms Brookes in a ‘‘frenzied’’ attack. She was left for dead in one of the store’s aisles before a fellow trader found her in a pool of blood. Susan, who asked that her last name not be used, says her sister had just had a second ceramic plate put in her head after her body rejected the first. ‘‘They [doctors] replaced the shattered bone with a plate back in January and they’ve had to take it out again because of infection and she’ll be on antibiotics for some time,’’ Susan says. ‘‘She talks, but you can’t understand what she’s

saying.’’ Jill will never be Jill again, she says, and will likely be in residential care for the rest of her life. In April, she turns 62. Jill’s four sisters and husband take turns to visit her at the Heidelberg rehabilitation centre which has been home for seven months or at hospital where she is a frequent visitor. Being a bookshop, covered in strangers’ fingerprints, the crime scene has been contaminated with too much DNA. Susan believes there will be a development in the case . . . ‘‘whether it’s now or years hence when other information comes,’’ she says. ‘‘We thought she was going to die at first and when she was in the intensive care they more or less said that she was going to die. ‘‘In her mind, I know that she knows what’s going on and she knows everything; she just can’t express it. ‘‘She just can’t get people to understand and that’s very frustrating for her. ‘‘Physically, she might be debilitated, but mentally, she’s still Jill. ‘‘She did make progress in the beginning when

she was at Royal Talbot, when she first went there, like after a couple of months . . . she started drinking little sips of water and then she started eating solid foods. ‘‘They still have to feed her through a stomach peg for the most of it. ‘‘They expected her to be paralysed all down one side, but she’s up and walking . . . ‘‘She knows something bad happened to her, and she knows that she was hit on the head, but I don’t think she remembers who did it or anything like that.’’ Police are still seeking a man seen near the shop who was wearing khaki bib-and-brace overalls and a checkered shirt. They also want to talk to the owner of a white tray truck seen in a rear laneway off Harrington Square. Anyone with information is asked to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit crimestoppers.com.au ■ Jill Brookes’ family has extended an offer to local charities and organisations to take remaining books from the store, which is closing.

Chooks need a place in the pecking order BY BENJAMIN MILLAR MARIBYRNONG residents are questioning the council’s commitment to sustainability after its latest order to remove backyard chickens. A Maidstone family was given until last Friday to re-house its three hens or surrender them to the council. The demand followed a similar order slapped on a feathered trio that were the pride and joy of Footscray’s Eldridge Street, despite a 150-signature petition calling for them to be allowed to stay. A council spokesman said 40 notices to chicken owners had been issued in the past 12 months. He said the most common reasons for neighbour complaints concerned chickens being in yards which were too small, an offensive smell and noise, and rats and mice being attracted to the yard. “Most matters have been resolved through communication and co-operation of the occupants to remove the chickens.” Angela Chiew said her chickens were given their marching orders following a “misunderstanding” with a neighbour that had since been cleared up. “She thought the chickens might have been attracting rats, but when we talked to her about

it she understood they weren’t behind it,” she said. “Rats pop up regardless of chickens. They were around long before our chooks. ‘‘We’re meticulous with their yard and the chooks would actually process the compost so quickly there was nothing for the rats.” Ms Chiew said the chickens played a vital role in her backyard garden and would be sorely missed. The council’s ‘general purposes local law’ prohibits chicken houses within 15 metres of a dwelling, although it may allow exceptions. The law came into effect in 2005 and is valid until the end of 2015. The council is preparing a report examining the rule for a meeting next month, following the tabling of the Eldridge Street petition. Ms Chiew said there could be very few homes in Maribyrnong that could ensure a 15-metre buffer from any dwelling. “The council is running a workshop next month about keeping backyard chooks, but with rules like this nobody would be able to.’’

take the action that she [Ms Hartland] indicates in terms of the Public Health and Wellbeing Act, but I did see the report and will respond in due course,” Mr Davis said. Western Region Health Centre CEO Lyn Morgain said environmental issues and awareness had an important impact on people’s health. “WRHC thinks that it is incumbent upon the government to ensure that residents have access to the necessary expert advice regarding the risks associated with any air-quality issues or indus-

trial impacts, not least because the consequence of fear and anxiety alone can be very real.” The Maribyrnong Truck Action Group labelled last Tuesday’s blockade of Shepherd Bridge a great success, with about 200 residents calling on the government to revive the shelved Truck Action Plan. The group has sought a meeting with new Premier Dennis Napthine and vowed further action will follow until a solution is found.

Coming out: hard journey, no turning back BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM FOR Kirsty Franic, coming out about her sexuality was about being true to herself. But the Victoria University student and student union president, 24, says the journey to her family’s acceptance of her bisexuality was a harrowing one. ‘‘There was a period when my parents didn’t speak to me. There was a lot of yelling and confusion on their part for something I had known about for a long time,’’ Ms Franic said. ‘‘I went through depression and was at the point of being suicidal. But I got through the tears with the support of some really close friends and in time my parents accepted me for who I am. ‘‘They realised that, above everything else, my happiness was most important.’’ Ms Franic is using her experience to inspire others as part of Victoria University’s landmark It Gets Better project.

Shared struggle: Victoria University’s Kirsty Franic, Caroline Symons and David Michalowsky appear in a new film about the challenges of coming out. Picture: Cathy Jackson movement that began in the US in response to the number of students committing suicide as a result of bullying and homophobia. The film highlights the struggles of

March 27, 2013

the university’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex (GLBTI) community. Staff participant Dr Caroline Symons said the film was a way of

reaching out to students who felt lost, isolated and underrepresented. ‘‘People who are gay or lesbian or gender-diverse don’t just come out once in their lives; they spend their life coming out,’’ she said. ‘‘Many young people have a challenging and discriminative experience when they come out to their communities and families, particularly in a school environment, and because of that they can feel isolated, as though there is no support for them.’’ Dr Symons, who discusses her own bisexuality in the film, said despite society becoming more accepting of the GLBTI community, there was still a long way to go. ‘‘There needs to be more conversations about the silencing, discrimination and isolation young people face in coming out, to stop the rate of suicides, and there needs to be more awareness of the support systems in place at the university for students who feel they have nowhere to turn.’’ A 2010 La Trobe University survey of more than 3000 Australian GLBTI

students found 61 per cent had been verbally abused, 18 per cent had been physically abused and 80 per cent had been bullied at school or university. VU student David Michalowsky, 19, also features in the film, revealing his battle with bullying and the struggle to secure his father’s acceptance of his homosexuality. ‘‘I was bullied quite badly at school for my sexuality and for being different to most other students,’’ he said. ‘‘Some students were really supportive of it, but others gave me a hard time. ‘‘My dad also struggled to accept that I was gay for a long time. ‘‘But in time, my family became my biggest support and I think it’s important for other young people to know that while you do feel alone initially, acceptance will come in time.’’ The film premiered at the university’s Footscray Park campus last week.

SIGNIFICANT trees in the Maribyrnong area might be better protected if developers have to face more stringent requirements before their removal, under a new plan suggested by the mayor. Councillors voted at last week’s meeting to seek a report on the methods for recording and protecting the area’s significant trees, including those on public land and private property. Mayor Catherine Cumming launched the motion in response to the removal of mature trees from a residential West Footscray site ahead of a planning application for a development submitted to the council. The council ultimately rejected the $4.5 million, 16-dwelling proposal by Midas Development for the disused St George the Martyr church site on the corner of Russell and Clive streets. “When the trees were removed the residents were in mourning and wanted to know

how this could happen,” she said. “Nothing could be done and when the application came to council recently, it triggered the thought that there needs to be an arrangement to protect other significant trees in the area. “If the trees were still there they would have had to be considered as part of the application. It is definitely a grey area if you have got these trees on your own property.” Cr Cumming said Maribyrnong needed to have a better sense of where its most significant trees were located, whether on private properties or in public spaces such as around parks and schools. “The community feels some kind of connection, but unfortunately people often only realise just how strong this is once the trees are gone,” she said. “People really struggle to understand how someone can just cut down 100-year-old trees. I just want the community to identify those trees so we can accurately document them in a more regular way.”

Jewellery to match the owner Every woman loves to look down at her fingers and see sparkling gemstones and diamonds, but if they’re unique to her then they’re even more special. The team at Uccello Jewellery & Watches in Altona specialise in custom-made pieces that are sure to impress. “Choosing and designing jewellery can be daunting,” owner David Szigeti says. “At Uccello Jewellery we make things easy, working with customers step-by-step. We help them hand-select gems or diamonds, design and then create a special piece they can treasure forever.” Kerran from Altona can attest to this claim. “The service David provided was beyond my expectations. His experience and knowledge in sourcing the perfect stone through to the quality of the design and craftsmanship of my ring was exceptional. He will continue to be my first choice for jewellers.” The jeweller also does watch and jewellery repairs; remodelling and resizing; buys and sells pre-owned jewellery and watches; and stocks new jewellery and Swiss-made watches. Uccello Jewellery & Watches is well-known in the inner city where it started in 1998. David decided to bring some of his beautiful jewellery to the suburbs and opened a store in Altona in 2010.

HOSPITAL funding agreements show the state governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handling of the health system is blowing out the elective surgery waiting list, according to Williamstown MP Wade Noonan. Agreements between the government and hospitals showed an unprecedented 55,000 people across the state would be waiting for surgery by June as a result of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $616 million health system cuts, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is going to heavily impact Western Health, where the waiting list has blown out by 22.3 per cent. This means by June this year, 800 additional people will be waiting â&#x20AC;&#x201D; often in pain â&#x20AC;&#x201D; for surgery.â&#x20AC;? Mr Noonan said 125 people had been added to the statewide elective surgery waiting list each week since the Coalition had been in government. The Weekly reported this month that emergency patient numbers and a rapid lengthening of the surgery waiting list were putting Western Hospital in Footscray under unprecedented pressure. Footscrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elective surgery waiting list rose from 1226 to 1293 as Williamstownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dropped from 557 to 508. Mr Noonan said this showed the system was in crisis even before the row between state and federal governments about funding.

COVERSTORY

MUSHROOM

fter years of trying, Michael Gudinski will roll out his fantasy show this weekend at Hanging Rock. The Mushroom Records founder will realise his long-time dream of bringing The Boss to home soil in two sellout shows during the Easter weekend. “The Bruce Springsteen people called it the Fantasy Gudinski Show,’’ he jokes. ‘‘Well, the fantasy has actually come true.” The concert bill also features Jimmy Barnes and The Rubens and sold out within hours. Each show has attracted about 17,000 punters and will mark the end of Springsteen’s international Wrecking Ball Tour. The weekend performances are expected to reap more than a million dollars in local economic benefits. Accommodation in the Macedon Ranges is booked out. “Springsteen is the icing on the cake,’’ Gudinski says proudly. “I’ve been chasing him for years and years. To end the tour at Hanging Rock will be very special.” Gudinski is a hard man to pin down. I’ve been waiting for an interview with him for what seems like an eternity. When we finally meet I’m ushered up three flights of stairs to his private office at Mushroom headquarters in Albert Park. The spiral staircase through the centre of the building feels like climbing the ladder to rock royalty. His top floor office is plastered with promotional posters for gigs old and new. We sit on a comfy brown leather couch and I begin to wonder how many famous people have sat in this very spot. Gudinski puts his feet up on the couch and collects himself. He’s not at all what I expected, casually dressed in a plain black T-shirt and jeans and sporting a scruffy silver beard. He tells me he went to see Garbage the night before and apologises for his resultant croaky voice. We begin by talking about his long association with the Macedon Ranges, which he reckons is one of Australia’s best-kept secrets. The connection with country Victoria began in 1972 when he and business partner Ray Evans staged the famed Sunbury Festival. The pair managed and booked all the entertainment for the event. It was a statement back then – that Australian music is as good as any music in the world. “It was a great time in the sense that it was the coming-of-age, a very defining moment that an allAustralian bill, for the first couple of years, could attract that many people.” One of the quirkier parts of the festival involved Evans and Gudinski, ever the entrepreneur, selling watermelons at a stand. By the end of the night the pair had made a tidy profit with their side project. It would later turn out to be an even bigger year for Gudinski when he founded the Mushroom Records label. A few years later in 1975, the movie Picnic at Hanging Rock was released and the idea of holding

Music mogul Michael Gudinski has been renowned for taking Australian music to the world, but now he’s realising a long-held dream to bring the world to his ‘‘backyard’’. Angela Valente reports

Gudinski’s connection to Mount Macedon spans more than 20 years, when he bought a property in

the idyllic town. His place has been used by many highprofile artists to record and write tracks over the years. Melbourne band The Temper Trap wrote most of its successful first album Sweet Disposition, which sold almost a million copies worldwide, at the house. Hip Hop trio Bliss N Eso, managed by Gudinski’s son Matt, also have written songs there. “It’s been very effective,’’ Michael Gudinski says. ‘‘We’ve also had some massive parties in the early days, from Madonna to Billy Joel and Sting. More importantly, I’m trying to leave a real artist legacy with the place.” The music guru has notched up a long list of achievements for services to Australian music, including being inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame in the early ’90s with a lifetime achievement award. In 2006, he was awarded a Member of the Order of Australia medal for service to the entertainment

industry – through promoting Australian recording artists and as an advocate for young people in the music industry – and to the community. In 2009 he played a part in the Sound Relief benefit concerts, which raised more than $8 million for victims of the Victorian and Queensland bushfires. Last year he was named Melburnian of the Year for his contribution to the city in the music field. It’s an impressive CV by anyone’s standards. Throughout the years, Gudinski has relished the chance to work with the finest crop of Australian artists. He says one of his more rewarding tasks has been mentoring young people in the industry. “I’m very fortunate to have a job that I’ve loved. It’s very important to encourage and develop new people, in particular young new people.” Gudinski is often asked how to break into the music business and says there’s no simple answer. “I don’t think it’s something you have to be educated for and I know there are a lot of courses out there.’’ The 61-year-old may be getting on in years but has the same enthusiasm for his work today as he did when he started. His aim was to take Australian music to the world. No one could argue he hasn’t achieved his dream. “It really is a dream come true,” he admits. “I never had a long-term plan. To reach the 40th anniversary and have my son [Matt] now involved with the company is inspiring. It’s all I’ve done all my life and I’ve got no intentions of giving up. I’ll stay involved until the day I die.” Looking to the future, Gudinski is keeping tightlipped on the next big act to grace the stage at Hanging Rock, but promises another big name. “We do a lot of shows as the Frontier Touring Company and we also do a lot of other things, but these are my own special projects. It’s a challenge to make it a better and better experience each time. It’s a massive exercise and hopefully we can unveil some big plans for the next phase. “Easter is going to be a hard act to follow.” I

ON THE DOTTED LINE SUPPLIED

outdoor concerts at the Rock was forever planted in his mind. “It’s an iconic movie around the world and I guess I would like to think that Hanging Rock could become world renowned,’’ he says. Having already produced sellout concerts with Leonard Cohen in November 2010 and Rod Stewart in February last year, delivering Springsteen was in many ways humbling for Gudinski. “It’s like my backyard: I think everyone is seeing how good it is for the region. I want the area to be renowned for music and the arts.” He explains that putting on concerts in the east paddock of the Hanging Rock Reserve is a significant challenge, with no power, water or phone connections. “It’s very expensive to do a show there. The [Macedon Ranges] council is certainly helping out by applying for a number of grants, but it’s a site that could be even better. It’s special not just for me, but for Bruce and the artists. They understand it’s a pretty special venue, the fact that we can utilise the Rock and light it.”

West’s councils plead for funds BY NICK TOSCANO A DELEGATION of western suburbs leaders has laid out its wish lists in Canberra with the hope of snaring concrete commitments before the September 14 election. Boosting their budget for roads, schools, hospitals and job creation in Melbourne’s west was the aim of the group of mayors and council CEOs, led by peak body, LeadWest. With 171 days until Australians go to the polls, key local government representatives from Maribyrnong, Hobsons Bay, Wyndham, Moonee Valley, Brimbank and Melton made the trip to the capital last week. The delegation, which included Maribyrnong mayor Catherine Cumming and mayor of Hobsons Bay Angela Altair, met with Prime Minister and Lalor MP Julia Gillard, Maribyrnong MP Bill Shorten, Gorton

MP Brendan O’Connor and Gellibrand MP Nicola Roxon. LeadWest chief executive Anton Mayer said the top priority for the west was federal funding to bankroll the east-west link. Opposition Leader Tony Abbott pledged last June to funnel $1.5 billion into the 18-kilometre project, which will link the Eastern Freeway, CityLink and the Western Ring Road, and include a second Maribyrnong River crossing. Ms Gillard said the meeting had been productive. Sustaining Melbourne’s west needed to be a critical focus from all tiers of government. The delegation also sat down with the Coalition’s childcare spokesman Sussan Ley, health spokesman Peter Dutton and infrastructure spokesman Warren Truss. Cr Altair said the delegates spoke as one in support of the east-west link to

We said, please, you need to start it in the west,’’ Cr Altair said. ‘‘While the focus was on regional solutions, we were able to nominate some examples for council-specific projects. Key ones for Hobsons Bay included the greening of Kororoit

Creek and solving problems of youth unemployment and mental health.’’ Mr Mayer said two days of talks were intended to ‘‘make sure the west of Melbourne is on the screen for everybody’’, regardless of who wins office. ‘‘We won’t be going home with a $100 million project in our pockets, but we’ve sown the seeds and reinforced our message.’’

College commuters left out of the loop BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK

Proud, loud and elected HOBSONS Bay’s deputy mayor has become the first woman elected to the rail division’s committee of management in the male-dominated, blue-collar Rail, Tram and Bus Union. Cr Luba Grigorovitch (pictured), who is the union’s organiser, campaigns and women’s officer, was this month elected branch divisional president.

‘‘It’s the first time a woman’s ever been on the committee of management and ever held such a position,’’ she said. ‘‘I am a proud and loud feminist.’’ This month she received the national Jennie George award, given to a union official who has contributed to the advancement of women in unions. — Goya Dmytryshchak

CALLS are growing for a railway station between Newport and Seaholme to service Newport, Williamstown North and Altona North residents. As reported by the Weekly on March 12, the state’s public transport lobby is calling on the state government to build a station west of Newport and duplicate the Altona loop on the Werribee line. In its state budget submission, the Public Transport Users Association calls for a station near Maddox and Champion roads to provide access to educational institutions such as Bayside College. PTUA president Tony Morton said the single track on the Altona loop — taking in Westona, Altona and Seaholme stations — ‘‘affected timetabling on the entire western

Puppy carers needed!

‘‘Duplication of the single track as far as is possible is the only solution for fixing public transport.’’ — Colleen Hartland rail network’’. The distance from Altona to Seaholme station is 970 metres. The next closest station — Newport — is 4.67 kilometres away. Altona North resident Cathy Nikolioudakis said that when she worked in the city, she backtracked to Altona station to catch a citybound train. ‘‘I started work at 6.30am so had to get the 5.40am bus to Altona station then get the train into the city.’’ She suggested a new station be

built at the corner of Rosshire and Blenheim roads, which is near two schools, sports grounds and a mosque under construction. Western Metropolitan Greens MP Colleen Hartland said Public Transport Victoria had refused to release, under freedom of information, documents pertaining to the cost of duplicating the Altona loop. PTV director Norman Gray told a public meeting in Altona last May that it would cost $10-12 million to duplicate the track between Seaholme and Westona, Ms Hartland said. ‘‘Duplication of the single track as far as is possible is the only solution for fixing public transport in the area.’’ PTV and the Public Transport Minister, Terry Mulder, had not responded to questions by the time of going to press.

$170,000 bluestone bowl a welcome sign BY BENJAMIN MILLAR A TRADITIONAL indigenous Welcome to Country artwork will greet visitors to Footscray after being selected from a host of concepts judged by Maribyrnong Council’s public art subcommittee. The “wominjeka tarnuk yooroom” (welcome

bowl) will be created on the corner of Paisley and Nicholson streets from 10 large bluestones in the shape of a traditional “coolamon”, a wooden dish used to hold burning leaves and foliage at traditional Welcome to Country ceremonies. Local indigenous artists Maree Clarke and Vicki Couzens, and fabricator Jackman Neale, will create the $170,000 artwork after being

chosen by both the nine selection panel members and the audience of a recent public session to discuss shortlisted works. Maribyrnong mayor Catherine Cumming says the artwork will provide a visual reminder of the community’s diversity and the area’s artists. Cr Martin Zakharov says the artwork was an important symbolic reminder that this is the

traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people. “The recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture is very important and I’m proud that council’s first public art commission will represent this.” Construction of the artwork is due to begin next month and will be completed by the end of June.

and a little bit nice, depending on how you look at them. Mania runs until April 21. Maribyrnong comedian Adam Francis joins the festival with his comedy partner in crime Dilruk Jayasinha. The pair will perform a show called Romcom, about pursuing a career you love over the person you love.

The industrial evolution This factory warehouse conversion suits a multitude of uses, writes Tegan Forder ndustrial design shines in this three-level residence zoned to enable versatile living for a family or to combine business and residential use. In a row of similarly-built properties converted from a factory and carpark, the location is close to transport, main artillery roads, Williamstown Beach, Seddon and Yarraville village, cafes, shops and more. Use of materials including steel, concrete and dark-stained wood create an interesting array of textures while pops of red help bring it together in a stylish and contemporary design. A heavy duty door sets the tone and it has access to the garage. At the back of this is a set of sliding doors to the first of four living areas. Another set of sliding doors access a self-contained apartment with kitchen, including a dishwasher and ample cupboard space and an en suite has grey-tiled shower and separate toilet. The apartment has access to a paved courtyard with clothesline.

I

Checker-plate stairs lead to the first floor with a designated study nook with hardwood floorboards. The spacious carpeted main bedroom is sun-lit thanks to a wall of windows. It has an en suite with shower over a bath, Conway toilet and low sink. There is also a long, fitted walk-in wardrobe. Step up to the lounge area with decked floors, concrete block walls and exposed steel beams. This area is made cosy thanks to a wood heater. Laundry facilities are tucked away behind a wall of cupboards. Down a short hallway are two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes and a bathroom with corner shower and frosted horizontal windows. The open-plan kitchen and family-meals area sits on the top floor. Home cooks will have ample room with plenty of bench and cupboard space and there are Ilve and Bosch appliances. Up a few stairs the living areas continue with a retreat, and access to a balcony with fantastic city views.

MOTORING ●

Mazda6 grows into role of family car Ewan Kennedy road tests the Japanese marque’s upmarket offering he big new Mazda6 has standout frontal styling, using Mazda’s so-called Kudo design theme with a huge grille that blends into the upper edges of the headlights in swooping curves. In keeping with the stunning exterior, Mazda6’s interior also has a futuristic shape. Even better, it has a quality look and feel that will appeal to buyers looking for an upmarket car that’s relatively affordable. This Mazda6 third generation is being offered only as a four-door sedan and a five-door station wagon. The hatchback has been discontinued, much to the annoyance of some potential buyers. It’s hardly unique in becoming larger with every new generation, but the Mazda6 has now grown to the extent that it’s not much shorter than the Ford Falcon and Holden Commodore. However, rather than tackling these big Aussie cars, the Mazda6 is likely to be shopped by buyers looking at the four-cylinder Toyota Camry, perhaps even Camry’s six-cylinder brother the Toyota Aurion.

T

The Mazda6 is noticeably narrower than the Ford and Holden. Despite this it still has good interior room, especially in the back seat of the sedan, which can cope with two large adults. Mum, dad and three kids who haven’t got to the teenage stage will find the Mazda6 providing stretch-out room. Power was provided by Mazda’s SkyActiv petrol four-cylinder engines in the car we tested. It has a capacity of 2.5 litres and produces 138 kilowatts of power and 250 Newton metres of torque. Ride comfort is good on all but the roughest of Australian back roads. Handling is competent and the steering has a good amount of feedback, but this Mazda is not exactly aimed at the sporting driver. Looking for a high-quality, fully imported family car that can handle four adults and is something out of the ordinary in its styling? Then the all-new, larger Mazda6 has to have a place on your short list. Prices start at $33,460, not including government or dealer delivery charges.

Futuristic: Bigger and bolder in its style, the latest Mazda6 is a stunning work of automotive art.

Features galore Derek Ogden and Ewan Kennedy review the new-look Holden Cruze obody can accuse GM Holden of relaxing on the Cruze. Indeed, the Aussie auto maker has set a new benchmark with its 2014 version of the small sedan and hatchback. The entry-level Cruze CD has been cut out of the range, being replaced by the Equipe. Starting at $19,490, which is $2000 less than the model it replaces, its added features include foglamps, sports grille, 17-inch alloy wheels and rear park assist as standard. Cruze CDX (starting from $24,190) gains premium features including keyless entry with push button start and a reversing camera. The last is also added to the range-topping SRi-V (from $26,490), while the SRi sport model (from $22,490) gets rear park assist as standard. Those familiar with the Aussie made Holden

N

At your fingertips: Cruze’s link with the outside world, a touch screen opening to Pandora and Stitcher .

Cruzes will recognise three engines from the Series II range – the 1.4-litre iTi and 1.8-litre petrol engines, and 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel. Now the MY14 Cruze introduces an additional engine, a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol unit. New Holden Cruze sees for the first time in a locally built car the introduction of MyLink, a new infotainment program that’s standard across the range. In addition to being able to call up stored songs from a phone or MP3 player and FM/AM stations via the car radio, when a mobile device with 3G data connection is hooked up to the MyLink system, the driver will also be able to stream digital content from applications including Pandora music radio and Stitcher ondemand radio. Drivers can access Pandora through the MyLink touch-screen, streaming favourite radio stations as well as using the ‘thumb up’ and ‘thumb down’ buttons to tune station preferences or select music genres. They can also pick out the next track via a steering wheel button or the touch-screen controls. Via the Stitcher embedded app, drivers can choose from more than 15,000 news, comedy, sports and talk radio shows and podcasts. Occupants can settle in a range of supportive seats and are protected by active and passive safety systems such as electronic stability control, antilock braking, electronic brakeforce distribution, traction control and brake assist.

New benchmark: Holden is expecting big things from its Aussie-made Cruze. A sound insulated, lit luggage space provides 445 litres of storage in the sedan and 413 litres in the hatch with the rear seat backs up. At the launch in Tasmania, it was a Vivaldi sort of day – four seasons in one – as the Cruze convoy snaked out of Hobart. Over the next 24 hours or so and more than 500 kilometres the motoring media were introduced to a range of MY14 models on some of the best and most testing roads in the country. While the 1.4, 1.8 petrol and 2.0-litre diesel

engines hooked up to a mix of manual or automatic transmissions had the Cruze skipping along the narrow twisty roads at full tilt, it was the sporty 1.6 petrol turbo six-speed manual that offered the most driving satisfaction. All the 230 Nm of torque was put to good use running down slower traffic. With 31 models selling for less than $30,000, the Cruze MY14, which goes on sale in April, faces a congested small-car market where competition is red hot.

Isuzu bolsters N Series

Wankel was the fatal flaw

Ewan Kennedy reviews the market leader’s latest moves

Marque Time with David Pike

omplacency can be dangerous, and no one is more aware of this than the chiefs at Isuzu Australia Limited. With the company approaching 25 years at the head of its market segment in Australia, Isuzu knows that competitors have them in their sights. So IAL has launched several new models that, combined with upgrades to existing ones, have the intention of keeping others in the sales race as far back as possible. Isuzu is offering Australian buyers no fewer than 58 varieties of its N Series light commercial vehicles. Major new models are the Isuzu NLR 200 AMT Tipper, the NPR 400 Tipper and the NPR 400 Crew. Though Isuzu has made its reputation on building no-nonsense trucks, it has recently moved strongly into the latest in in-vehicle communication and entertainment systems. The main visible change is a much bigger 6.1-inch touch screen. Many of the system’s functions can also be controlled using voice

N many ways the NSU Ro80 was to the 60s what the Citroen Goddess was to the 50s. The Ro80 was recognised as a futuristic design when it greeted the public light of day at the end of 1967. The NSU was regarded as revolutionary more for its use of the Wankel twin rotor engine than for any other single attribute. Soon, argued the critics, maybe all cars will have rotary engines. There are just these few little teething troubles to fix. NSU had been proud of its decision to purchase the rights to Felix Wankel’s radical engine and the Ro80 was the first production sedan ever to use it. It is fair to assert that the reliability of the rotary engine — mainly the seals — was not entirely secured until the early 1970s. It was an open secret that the Ro80 was the car either to save or sink the listing NSU company. NSU sank in deep water, but not without trace. Numerous engineers immediately went to work for Volkswagen-Audi, which took over NSU in August 1969. Despite the takeover, NSU was able to persevere with the Ro80 until 1977,

Falcons’ English import leads charge BY LANCE JENKINSON A MONTH into the season, Wyndhamvale had a lousy nine points, sat third-last and had lost key allrounder Trent Lawford to Premier Cricket. Lawford was a big loss; the leader of the pack moved to North Melbourne and was an immediate sensation with 538 runs and 33 wickets in the first XI. The Falcons were on the tips of no one’s tongue when it came to finals talk. Fast forward five months and the Falcons are perched atop the Williamstown and District Cricket Association A1 turf premiership dais for the first time since 2008-09. ‘‘No one expected us to play finals after four or five rounds,’’ all-rounder Ryan Radford told the Weekly. ‘‘To go on and win it, it’s a team thing, you’re pretty happy with that sort of stuff. It’s a good feeling.’’ The Falcons completed the fairytale with a 219-run victory over minor premiers Williamstown Imperials in a six-day grand final at Bryan Martyn Oval. They controlled the match from the outset to give the Imps a second consecutive loss. ‘‘It wasn’t as easy as the scoreboard looks,’’ Radford said. ‘‘We had to bowl pretty well.’’

Victory was set up with a century to the Falcons’ overseas import Andrew Ford, who made 112 and found a partner-in-crime in Lee Veal (62) as the Falcons made 244 in the first dig. ‘‘He was inspirational on day one,’’ Radford said of man-of-the-match Ford. ‘‘Getting him into the team was probably the turning point in the season.’’

INBRIEF Cricket Williamstown lost to Kew by seven wickets in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association northwest group third XI grand final last weekend, managing 149 off 69.4 overs with a top score of 45 not out from middle-order batsman Sam Davis.

Rugby Union Footscray has reappointed Junior Naufahu as coach of the premier division Victorian Rugby Union team, with assistance from Mick Fleming, former Moorabbin assistant coach, and Nic Henderson, a Melbourne Rebels Super Rugby player who played three Wallabies internationals.

Golf Kooringal made it two wins in Golf Victoria men’s division 3 pennant, downing Long Island 4-3. Medway lost 4-3 to Rossdale in men’s division 4, but in women’s division 4 Medway holds top spot, having beaten Peninsula 5-2. Kooringal blitzed Waverley 5-2 for their first season win.

Basketball Altona Lady Gators went hard against Craigieburn Eagles in Sunday’s Big V women’s division 1 match but lost 81-69, while in men’s division 1, the Gators lost 88-75 to the Craigieburn Eagles.

The Imperials found it hard to get out of first gear, reaching 159 and giving the Falcons an 85-run lead. In the second innings, the Falcons were 4-29 and in a spot of bother until a 150-run stand between Andrew Mundey (91) and Adam Moscatiello (59). ‘‘Their partnership took a lot of the pressure off us,’’ Radford said.

The Imperials were set a massive 321 for victory but mustered just 112. Young quick Jake Styles left a trail of destruction with eight wickets in the innings and 11 for the match. Styles finished on 50 wickets for the season. ‘‘It’s a pretty big season for a 19-year-old,’’ Radford said. ‘‘He’s pretty sharp, but he’s carefree. He just runs in and bowls.’’

Jets’ costly errors help fuel Dragons’ win BY LANCE JENKINSON THE Western Jets were made to pay for untidy football at certain times in their 23-point loss to Sandringham Dragons in the TAC Cup season opener at Visy Park on Sunday. The Jets’ endeavour could not be faulted and there were early periods when they even dominated the contest. However, careless errors at crucial times gave the Dragons the ascendancy and they needed no second invitation to run away with the game. ‘‘It was not the start we were looking for,’’ Jets region manager Shane Sexton said. ‘‘But there were positives in the game that we can take away. ‘‘We can go away and work on a few things and be better because of it. ‘‘We just made too many mistakes and you can put it down to that. Decisions with the ball and without the ball . . . some of them were pretty costly.’’ The Jets, coached by Torin Baker for the first time, made all the early running. A goal to Omar Abou-Zeid and two more to Harrison King had them right on top.

SCOREBOARD TAC Cup Sandringham Dragons 16.9 (105) d Western Jets 12.10 (82). Western Jets — goals: H. King 3, P. Manivong, M. Norton 2, O. Abou-Zeid, D. Burton, M. Orr, B. Ferrari, J. Greiser. Best: D. O’Leary, M. Norton, H. King, J. Greiser, D. Iaccarino, B. Bewley.

King’s early dominance had alarm bells ringing in the Dragons’ coaches box. ‘‘His first half was excellent and he had a good game,’’ Sexton said. ‘‘He plays predominantly as a lead-up forward, really good overhead and his practice matches have all been good. ‘‘They put the clamps on him after half-time and that made it a bit more difficult for him.’’ The Jets had nothing to show for their fast start, trailing by five points at the first break. The second term was an anomaly in the match as the Dragons booted five of the six goals for the quarter to take a 34-point lead into half-time. Try as they might, the Jets could not erode the hefty deficit, with the 30-minute second quarter black-out ultimately costing the Jets.

Daniel O’Leary was named best on ground for the Jets. The courageous back pocket did what his coaches asked of him. ‘‘Danny’s a terrific kid, a real competitor,’’ Sexton said. ‘‘You can trust him to give it 100 per cent and cover off his man. He was pretty solid today without a doubt.’’ The will-o’-the-wisp Mitch Norton made an impressive debut at the level. The lightly-built forward pocket snared two goals to show his smarts near the big sticks. ‘‘He’s a very clever player, exhibits a lot of class,’’ Sexton said. Ruckman Duom Dawam got his hands on the ball first with regularity at the bounce-downs, while onballer Jake Greiser did a lot of fishing beneath the packs to offer first use to the outside runners. The Jets are eager to avoid a repeat of last year’s slow start to the season and will be desperate to get into the winners’ circle against the Northern Knights in the early 10am game on Sunday at Visy Park. ‘‘It’s a big week next week,’’ Sexton said. ‘‘We don’t want to get left too far behind.’’

Seagulls rely on young hopefuls BY LANCE JENKINSON WILLIAMSTOWN faces a stern firstup test against defending premiers Geelong Cats in the Victorian Football League season-opener at Torquay Football Ground on Sunday. Seagulls coach Peter German believes his side will tackle every challenge head on this season, if their preparation is any indication. Speaking at the Seagulls’ season launch last week, he was impressed with his players’ ability to overcome a trying situation on their pre-season camp at Bright. ‘‘The time that I actually did start to think we do have a good quality group was when we went to Bright,’’ he said. ‘‘We spent about three days there and crammed a lot of physical work, a lot of educational work and we had some good training up there, but probably the hardest thing we did was a day trek up and down the mountains. ‘‘With how hard it was, I didn’t hear one player whinge — well certainly not while I was around — but I really felt the group bonded well. You could see they’re so eager to learn and also be part of what we hope is a team this year that’s going to go forward in leaps and bounds.’’ The Seagulls brought in three bigname recruits during the summer. Cameron Wood was highly sought after, but the Seagulls beat all others to the punch. The former Collingwood big man is likely to command the No.1

Tough job: Williamstown coach Peter German has no shortage of candidates for positions in Sunday’s season-opener. ruckman position. Justin Sherman, who was on the Western Bulldogs’ list last season, opted to continue his career with the Seagulls. Brent Prismall, who works as a player well-being officer at the Bulldogs, signed on after an injury-hit AFL stint with Geelong and Essendon. While delighted with the additions, German revealed the Seagulls had knocked back other former AFL

players so as not to ‘‘overload’’ the squad at the expense of young up-andcoming players already on the list. ‘‘I think if you look at how we finished off last year with a lot of the players who were performing weekly late in the year and going into finals, they were Williamstown [-listed] players. So we wanted to make sure we didn’t overload our list so that it stymied some of the young players

who were starting to develop,’’ German said. ‘‘To that fact, we actually knocked back two or three quality players, who were ex-AFL players who we quite easily could’ve recruited, but again that shows the real faith in the players that we’ve got at the club in the last two or three years, but also with the new players that we’ve got.’’ The first bounce on Sunday is at 2pm.

Lightning holds its nerve in all-west thriller BY LANCE JENKINSON

VNL SCOREBOARD

VU-WESTERN Lightning was not motivated to beat City West Falcons as payback for last year’s Victorian Netball League grand final loss. The Lightning wasn’t even stirred by the prospect of bragging rights over its western suburbs rivals. This was all about four premiership points and redemption from its heavy round-two loss to the undefeated Peninsula Waves. ‘‘It was more about getting back on the bike,’’ Lightning coach Matt Hills said. ‘‘We didn’t mention the grand final at all.’’ The Lightning won a nail-biter by two goals at the State Netball and Hockey Centre on Wednesday night. Close games have become a common theme in these all-west encounters. The side that wins is the one that can execute better down the stretch and limit turnovers. ‘‘We always tend to have close games with the Falcons,’’ Hills said. ‘‘Over the past three years, we’ve developed a

fairly competitive rivalry. There’s only been one game that’s been a bit of a blowout, which was our second game last season. ‘‘Other than that, including last season’s grand final, they’ve all been right down to the wire.’’ The Lightning produced a spirited performance. It suffered a blow on the eve of half-time with Amelia Hills ruled out for the rest of the game with a finger injury. There was no break, but X-rays revealed ligament damage, which could see the talented wing attack consigned to the sidelines. The Lightning’s young mid-court filled the void, with Elle Bennetts, Madeline Carter and Sophie Barr instrumental. ‘‘We lost one of our key centre-

courters and were able to cover that and still go on and win the game,’’ Hills said. ‘‘That’s a great thing for us.’’ It was neck-and-neck throughout, much like last season’s decider. The Lightning held on to its twogoal three-quarter-time lead until the last whistle. Its defensive pillars, Fiona Theman and Brooke Thompson, were hard to pass. They enjoyed a huge battle with Falcons goalers Julia Knott (23-from-28) and Maggie Lind (11-from-19). The most encouraging sign for the Lightning was the performance of new goaler combination Megan Fitzpatrick (25-from-30) and Erin McCarthy (11-from-18). ‘‘That’s been our area of challenge and it’s good to see some improved signs,’’ Hills said. Both the Lightning and the Falcons sit inside the top four with a 2-1 record. The Lightning hosts North East Blaze in tonight’s 7 o’clock game at the SNHC, while the Falcons take to the court at 9.40pm against Monash University Central.

TALENTED teen Celeste Mucci has impressed with her tremendous versatility at the Australian junior athletics championships in Perth. Mucci, 13, a member of the Williamstown Athletic Club, returned with an incredible haul of four gold medals and a silver in the track and field. ‘‘She had four wins, three individuals and a relay, and then she was second in the 100m,’’ WAC coach David Jamieson said. ‘‘She just couldn’t quite get the clean sweep.’’ Mucci had a hectic schedule with some of her events even slightly overlapping. The youngster remained calm and collected to win gold in the long jump (1.64m), high jump (5.33m), 90-metre hurdles (13.15sec) and a relay event. She just missed out on a clean sweep, being pipped on the line by a fellow Victorian in the 100m but still ran a personal best time. Jamieson lauded the mental toughness of the young athlete. ‘‘There’s lots of people with talent and they just can’t produce it on the day,’’ he said. ‘‘She is one who’s quite relaxed in between competitions and can get herself focused when competitions are on. She turns it on when it counts.’’ Mucci has shown in her young career that she doesn’t favour one event over the other. She’s adept in both the track and field situations. Rising star of the track Daniela Roman had a competition to remember at the nationals, taking out gold in the U20 100m and U18 100m hurdles. Roman ran the hurdles event in a time of 13.67sec that has qualified her for July’s IAAF world youth championships in Donetsk, Ukraine. ‘‘I knew from the start of the season that there were qualifiers out there to chase,’’ she said, ‘‘and that’s been an extra motivation to push myself. ‘‘It’s been so much fun here. I’ve been really lucky to perform well in the 100m and the 100m hurdles. ‘‘I don’t know what I am capable of in Donetsk. I’ll do lots of training and then we’ll see.’’ Relative newcomer Sweeney Preston performed exceptionally to bring home bronze in the U16 400m, running a PB time of 51.81sec. Western Athletics long jumper Paul Parker claimed bronze in the men’s U20 with a jump of 6.90m.

Wolves swing for fences and swoop on title BY LANCE JENKINSON

On target: Wolves reliever Cory Hart gives his arm a workout in game two.

Armed, dangerous BY LANCE JENKINSON WILLIAMSTOWN Wolves made no secret of the fact they built a team that would compete in March. Wolves first-year coach Dean Marnell was adamant that no matter where his side was ranked in the finals, it would be the best equipped for a gruelling three-games-in-aweek series. True to their word, the Wolves pounced on the premiership from second, overcoming the experienced and battle-hardened Mulgrave Rebels two games to one in the bestof-three grand final. The reason for the Wolves’ optimism was a pitching rotation to die for. They had up to eight players they could rely on to throw substantial innings in the first team. In the third and deciding game, the duties were shared between starter Jason Lester and relief Josh Lee, while on the other side of the coin, a tired Rebels import Mike McGillivray was forced to churn out a fourth start in under two weeks. ‘‘We’re blessed in this competition to have the pitching depth that we’ve got,’’ Wolves playing president Ryan Camov told the Weekly. ‘‘We’ve got six guys who could’ve started a game for us in the finals and another one or two in the seconds who have developed incredibly well this year who could have gotten up

there. We always felt confident going into a three-game series that our pitching depth was going to be something that would get us across the line, and it showed today.’’ The Wolves claim to be one of the most unified clubs in the competition and that can’t be underestimated when assessing the foundation of this division 2 premiership. They received the club championship award at the Baseball Victoria night of nights on Friday. ‘‘It’s one of those things where everyone in the club can feel a part of it, and in every way they are,’’ Camov said. ‘‘They all contributed to it from players through to volunteers and everyone. It’s a really good award to win; we were rapt.’’ It was a one-in, all-in, celebration. ‘‘When Josh got that final out, there was 30 blokes in the middle of the field who all felt a sense of ownership on the win today,’’ Camov said. ‘‘It was a huge win for the club, not just the first nine but all the guys who’ve been part of the club this year.’’ The Wolves’ destination in 2014 is still to be determined. The governing body, Baseball Victoria, indicated at its awards night that changes will be made to the league structure from next season, subject to club approval. Plans will be outlined to the clubs this week.

WILLIAMSTOWN Wolves are howling with delight after winning the 2012-13 Baseball Victoria summer league division 2 premiership. The Wolves overcame a see-sawing battle with the Mulgrave Rebels in a best-of-three grand final to swoop on the holy grail. They were forced to clinch the series on the road at the Rebels’ field after failing to record a second win at home on Saturday. Wolves playing president Ryan Camov admitted the difference between his side’s mental approach from Saturday to Sunday was like chalk and cheese. ‘‘We came into the game yesterday and we had a bit of a sense of expectation that we were going to get away with it,’’ he said of game two. ‘‘Our application was pretty poor and we got what we deserved [an 8-3 home loss]. ‘‘Today, I didn’t know what to expect, but the minute I stepped out on to the bench I realised there were 25 people who were either playing, on the bench or otherwise who were ready to go. ‘‘We were there to win it.’’ The Wolves won game three, 12-6, in spectacular fashion at Robert Booth

Reserve on Sunday. They quickly opened up a 9-0 lead by the top of the fourth and never looked back. ‘‘We really jumped out of the blocks today,’’ Camov said. ‘‘One through nine, the boys were ready to go.’’ Wolves starting pitcher Jason Lester and Rebels import Mike McGillivray struggled for command as the physical toll of a tough week on the mound became evident. The Wolves batters, however, were most effective, giving their reliever Josh Lee plenty of breathing space. ‘‘Jason Lester did an amazing job to get back up after Wednesday and be ready to go,’’ Camov said. ‘‘He gave us the start we needed. Then Josh came in and was fantastic.He really took the pressure

off the field by really getting at the hitters and gave us every chance to win the game.’’ Player-coach Dean Marnell’s insertion into the line-up after a week’s suspension was huge, not only because of the importance of his batting but also his ability to lift those around him. ‘‘Deano has been a phenomenal pick-up for us, both as coach and as a hitter,’’ Camov said. ‘‘He’s a dangerous hitter and being able to add him back into the line-up today gave us a lot of depth and it gives the guys around him a lot more confidence.’’ Lead-off hitter Aaron Green was superb in the batter’s box for the Wolves while, defensively, Michael Pollock was water-tight at third base. To name individuals on such a big occasion would not do justice to every player who pulled on the Wolves kit on Sunday. ‘‘Everyone contributed today,’’ Camov said. ‘‘Guys delivered when they had to. We hit well for the situations. Guys put balls in play, hit sac flys, put bunts down and ran the bases hard, a lot of base hits back to back to back. It was a real team win today.’’ Wolves life member Les Flower had the honour of presenting Marnell with the coveted Reg Darling Shield in the post-game ceremony.

Hit machine: Aaron Green was a regular source of hits and RBIs for the premiership-winning Williamstown Wolves.
