SARAH HARRIS QUE SERA

OUR COVER: Professor Patrick McGorry has used the limelight to push for improved youth mental health services. Story: 10-11 Picture: Martina Gemmola

Sorry, no port in a diplomatic storm hat’s in a name? Determined to find out, I asked Bett — one of my mother’s nursing home neighbours — who enjoys a small glass of sherry with her evening meal. Fancy another apera, Bett? “Eh?” she queried. We are not allowed to call it sherry any more because the European Union says so. “What on earth is she talking about?” she asked her daughter, Anne. “Ma, sherry’s no more!” But this is no trifle. Port has also gone overboard — one of the latest names to disappear from local labels under an agreement struck between the European Union and Australia. The agreement that prevents Australian winemakers using the names of European towns or regions has already seen champagne, burgundy, white burgundy, chablis, hermitage and moselle renamed. The fortified wines are the latest to fall under the EU’s protected geographical status laws. More than 1000 agricultural products and foodstuffs have been given protected geographical indications status over the past 40 years. These include some of the world’s best-known and tastiest products like Kalamata olives, Parma ham and Parmigiano Reggiano. The idea is to protect the quality, reputation and economic value of trademark origins. Bett, however, is unimpressed by the suggestion she rename her evening tipple. At 92 she has very clear opinions and doesn’t miss a trick. “What about Brussels sprouts?” she demands, stabbing a wee brassica as if it were a European bureaucrat. What about Yorkshire pud, Black Forest cake, Frankfurters, Singapore noodles, Peking duck and Chelsea buns? Or, for that matter, tonight’s dinner . . . the chicken formerly known as Kiev. You’re right, Bett. It’s a load of Bologna.

Termites, vermin add to dental sites’ decay FOOTSCRAY’S ageing dental facilities face further decay unless urgent works proceed immediately, according to the Western Region Health Centre (WRHC). Western suburbs Greens MP Colleen Hartland plans to use State Parliament to drive home the need for urgent solutions to the long-running woes facing the centre. WRHC is the key provider of emergency and general dental care to more than 10,000 adults and children in Melbourne’s west each year. The Weekly reported in June that a dental services taskforce, chaired by western suburbs Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury, found a series of issues clouding the Footscray clinics’ future.

The report found both dental sites, at Paisley Street and Geelong Road, have inadequate access and are at risk from termites and vermin. There is extensive rust and twisted electrical wiring in the arms of dental chairs, while upstairs surgeries are unable to operate when temperatures hit 30 degrees in summer. One option recommended by the report is bringing together adult and child dental services — now split over two sites — to one redeveloped 12-chair dental clinic on the Paisley Street site. WRHC chief executive Lyn Morgain said the clinics were at risk of closing if the equipment failed.WRHC’s Nicole Bartholomeusz said many clients were refugees, mentally ill and homeless

people who would miss out on treatment without public dental care. “The age of our dental buildings — built in the 1960s — and equipment does not yet make our services unsafe, but it does limit the range and type of services we can deliver, and it places uncertainty around how long we can continue to deliver dental services.’’ Health Minister David Davis said the government’s first response to the report was to spend $200,000 on planning the next step. Ms Hartland has launched a community postcard campaign calling on the government to immediately fund the rebuilding of the dental clinic. She will deliver the cards to Premier Ted Baillieu when Parliament next sits.

Growing pains: Colleen Hartland and Lyn Morgain say children will be the big losers if the dental clinic is closed. Picture: Cathy Jackson

Groups argue over bike trail route BY BENJAMIN MILLAR PRESSURE is mounting on the state government to fix the ‘‘missing link’’ in the Federation Trail, the western suburbs bicycle network. VicRoads has backed away from original plans to complete a planned off-road route to the city along the same alignment as a proposed truck route linking Williamstown Road and Hyde Street. The cost of a bridge over the freight rail line next to the former Bradmill textiles factory in Yarraville has been blamed for an impasse in the project, but cyclists, councils and opposition parties are calling for an ‘at-grade’ crossing as a compromise to stop the project from being scuttled, arguing that only four trains use the crossing each day. VicRoads is instead pushing for a redirection of the path via an off-road and on-road route through Spotswood. It argues the original funding and design was linked with the Truck Action Plan Western suburbs councils opposed to the

changes want the extension of the Federation Trail from Millers Road, Brooklyn, to Hyde Street/Douglas Parade, Spotswood, to run adjacent to the West Gate Freeway. They argue that a number of bike trails are being constructed to link up with the Federation Trail, expecting it to provide a direct link to the CBD. A report to Hobsons Bay Council last month labelled the altered VicRoads route ‘‘indirect and potentially unsafe’’. VicRoads has $4.8 million left for the project, but it predicts a $6-7 million price tag for a bridge over the railway lines. VicRoads has written to Hobsons Bay Council warning construction of the bridge would leave the remainder of the extension open to competing against other bicycle projects across the state, at a time the government has scrapped all new bicycle infrastructure spending. VicRoads also warned the $4.8 million could be spent elsewhere if the councils request deferral of the bridge. Bicycle Network Victoria says the government can either fully fund the project or admit defeat

On the trail: Stephen Deague, who was hit by a truck in 2010, is among a growing number of cyclists who want the Federation trail finished. Picture: Matthew Furneaux and abandon riders in the western suburbs. Williamstown MP Wade Noonan has written to Roads Minister Terry Mulder, backing the councils’ call not to abandon the original route. VicRoads regional director Patricia Liew said

the organisation was reviewing options to extend the Federation Trail. “Local councils, VicTrack and Bicycle Network Victoria have been consulted on the proposed options and these are currently under review.”

nigh Curfew drives trucks elsewhere Silencing for decibel blast BY BENJAMIN MILLAR

HOT SPECIALS

Tall order: The Zhen Hua 26, its cargo a 104.5-metre-high crane, sails under the West Gate Bridge. Picture: Marco De Luco

Tight squeeze as crane signs on for duty RESIDENTS and freeway commuters last Thursday witnessed a giant crane on a Chinese ship scrape under the West Gate Bridge with 2.4 metres to spare. The Zhen Hua 26 carried a 104.5-metre-high crane, as high as St Patrick’s Cathedral. It was the first of three such cranes to be delivered to Patrick Stevedores at Swanson Dock East. At low tide, two Port Phillip sea pilots guided the vessel up the Yarra River before completing a 180-degree turn to berth at the northern end of East Swanson Dock. Port of Melbourne

Williamstown MP Wade Noonan said it was no surprise that the PoMC would not publicly push for the Truck Action Plan. “I think it’s a cop-out for the Port to wash their hands of the issue of trucks and local communities. They are not there to advocate for the community; their objective is to not offend the Minister for Ports or the Minister for Roads.” A spokeswoman for Roads Minister Terry Mulder said the east-west link would improve transport connections across Melbourne’s east-

Corporation (PoMC) chief executive officer Stephen Bradford said the crane would boost productivity at Australia’s busiest container port. “As vessel sizes increase, the port needs the accompanying infrastructure to handle those vessels efficiently,” he said. The crane would be used to load and unload 7000 containers daily. Two more are expected to be delivered early next year. — Goya Dmytryshchak

west corridor and cater for the predicted growth in freight vehicle traffic. ‘‘The project would provide better access to the Port of Melbourne, particularly Swanson Dock, and improve local amenity, including a reduction of truck traffic in residential areas,’’ the spokeswoman said. ‘‘Integral to the development of the east-west link will be a robust assessment of the project and the way it could integrate with other measures such as the Truck Action Plan.’’

FOOTSCRAY residents are one step closer to respite from rail noise following the release of a long-awaited ‘noise plan’. The state government’s ‘draft passenger rail infrastructure noise policy’ includes ‘‘investigation thresholds’’ for passenger rail infrastructure of 85 decibels. Current noise levels along the Footscray corridor already exceed the flagged trigger point, making it likely noise abatement measures will be incorporated into Regional Rail Link (RRL) works. Fair-go for Footscray Rail Residents spokesman Nick Fahey said he hoped Transport Minister Terry Mulder would give the Regional Rail Link Authority (RRLA) the go-ahead to begin noise mitigation work immediately. “We are cautiously pleased to see they have adopted these trigger levels and to see that this long-term policy has come out of our fight,” he said. The investigation thresholds will not limit noise to a maximum level. Steps to cut noise experienced by residents could include double glazing or construction of barriers or cuttings. An RRLA spokeswoman said the policy would apply once finalised. “The Regional Rail Link Authority will ensure that any additional noise mitigation resulting from application of the policy will be able to be incorporated into the project.” Transport Minister Terry Mulder said the policy was in a draft for community and stakeholder input. “We expect the final policy to be released by the end of 2012.” Western suburbs Greens MP Colleen Hartland said: “Footscray residents currently experience noise levels up to 105 decibels — 20 decibels above the policy’s 85 decibel threshold.” The report has been released as construction work officially begins on the Footscray to Deer Park section of the RRL project. Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Anthony Albanese was yesterday joined by Gellibrand MP Nicola Roxon and Mr Mulder to mark the start of construction on the 7.5-kilometre section. — Benjamin Millar

ALMOST 2000 truck drivers have been fined for flouting inner-west curfews since their introduction a decade ago. VicRoads regional director Patricia Liew said her organisation worked closely with councils, the transport industry, local businesses and Victoria Police to manage the truck curfews. “From 2002 to 2012, 1071 traffic infringement notices were issued for truck curfew offences on Somerville Road and 794 traffic infringement notices on Francis Street [both in Yarraville],” she said. Maribyrnong Council and VicRoads are reviewing the curfews that have been in place in residential Yarraville streets since 2002. The curfews appear to have forced extra trucks onto Moore Street, Footscray, where average weeknight traffic from 8pm to 6am increased almost five-fold from 110 per night in 2002 to 522 last year. The volume is likely to increase as the state government and Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC) have flagged extra night-time truck movements to avoid traffic-plagued roads during the day. Australia’s largest port is due to double freight traffic from 2.5 million containers a year to more than 5 million by 2025 — about 4 million via Swanson Dock. Addressing a business breakfast at Maribyrnong Town Hall on Thursday, PoMC chief executive Stephen Bradford said operators were embracing a shift to moving more freight at nights and on weekends. “I support night-time and after-hours use of our freeway network,” he said. Expansion of Webb Dock will be backed by a dedicated road accessing the M1, but movement out of Swanson Dock will rely upon a future east-west freeway link following the mothballing of the Truck Action Plan by the government. Mr Bradford said the Port supported the existing road curfews, but he stopped short of indicating support for the Truck Action Plan to help link an expanded Swanson Dock with the West Gate Freeway.

The partial remains of the deceased man were found on a property in St Leonards on February 7 during a police raid as part of a clandestine laboratory squad investigation. The men, aged 23 and 29, have each been charged with one count of murder. Last week, police charged a 25-yearold Glen Iris man with one count of murder relating to the death.

Scheme to share nature’s gifts BY BENJAMIN MILLAR A BUMPER crop from the backyard tree need never go to waste again thanks to a new project being trialled in Maribyrnong. Foodbank Victoria is launching an ‘Urban Street Harvest’ pilot to share excess fruit and vegetables from residential gardens with those in need. The volunteer-based program will map residential fruit and vegetable production and provide a chance for extra fruit and vegetables to be passed on to local food relief agencies. Co-ordinator Katrina O’Brien says the idea sprang from an initiative in the Albury-Wodonga area. “That has been running successfully for a couple of years,” she says. With the help of the Maribyrnong Council community grants program, Foodbank Victoria will now test the Street Harvest model in an urban setting for the first time. “This will be a pilot project in Maribyrnong. We’re thinking the main donations will be from fruit trees.” The pilot is aimed at rescuing excess produce from residential homes in the Maribyrnong area and redistributing it to Maribyrnong food relief

agencies, cutting down on the amount of fruit and vegetables wasted from residential gardens. Ms O’Brien says Foodbank Victoria has worked closely with relief agencies in the west, the project being a way to ensure more people meet their nutritional needs. Volunteers are available to help harvest your garden during the three-week harvest period from November 27 to December 17. Anyone collecting produce outside these dates can drop extra produce at Foodbank Victoria’s Yarraville Warehouse at 4/2 Somerville Road, Yarraville, from 7am-4pm weekdays. If you have excess fruit or vegetables to share with the community, register as a donor at foodbankvictoria.org.au Potential volunteers can email katrinao@foodbankvictoria.org.au or phone 9362 8300.

Store offers new experience With a family history in the food industry behind him, Anthony Bongiovanni has continued the tradition by opening a food emporium, A.Bongiovanni & Son Grocery Store in Seddon. “My mother’s side of the family has a long line of fruiterers and my father’s family are butchers, so food has always been a big part of my life,” Anthony says. The store specialises in organic and glutenfree products and aims to provide a different shopping experience. “We aim to provide good old-fashioned service and carry more than 10,000 quality products, providing shoppers with more choices.” Opened last month, the food store stocks fresh fruit and vegetables, groceries and dairy products, artisan-style freshly baked breads, a wide variety of cheese, pasta and sauces, and free-range and organic meat and poultry.

THE warm glow as you sip your latte, flat white or espresso shot this Friday will be that little bit warmer if your coffee is savoured at one of the cafes taking part in the 2012 CafeSmart initiative. To mark National Homeless Persons Week, participating cafes will donate $1 from every coffee sold to CafeSmart, a StreetSmart fund-raiser helping to tackle homelessness. Kate Rogers, of Sourdough Kitchen in Seddon, said CafeSmart raised $47,477 last year to assist 38 local projects. ‘‘We’re really excited to be part of this event and able to donate money that will directly benefit grassroots projects in our local area,’’ she said. ‘‘Even if you don’t drink coffee feel free to come in and make a donation.’’ StreetSmart chief executive Adam Robinson said cafes around Australia had come together for a national day of action with a very local outcome. ‘‘So on August 10, make a special effort to visit a participating cafe´, encourage your friends and work colleagues and enjoy your favourite brew or maybe two.’’ Participating cafes include Sourdough Kitchen and Common Galaxia in Seddon; West 48 and Footscray Milking Station in Footscray; and Kingsville’s Petitou.

leaving western suburbs residents to sit on congested roads. “[Building the eastern end first] consigns some of the fastest-growing areas of Melbourne and the south-west coast to a gridlock.” A spokeswoman for Roads Minister Terry Mulder said the closure of the reference group did not suggest the eastern end was the government’s priority. “The east-west link is a massive project that also needs federal money. To meet Infrastructure Australia’s requirements we also need to ensure we consider the full cost of the project and its strategic impact on the road network.’’ No Freeway for West Footscray spokeswoman Lucy Liga has said the money could be better spent on other transport options, particularly public transport. WestLink community representative Bruce Light said the community was frustrated over lack of progress on major road projects.

FEARS are mounting that a second river crossing from the western suburbs to the CBD is at least 10 years away. The concerns were expressed after the state government wound up a community reference group for the western end of the project. The government made the decision two weeks ago to focus on planning the eastern end of the east-west road link. But LeadWest chief executive Anton Mayer fears the closure means the government is planning to build the eastern end first. “The western part is more important because that’s where the growth is and the transport logistics industry is increasingly located here.” Shadow minister for major projects and infrastructure Tim Pallas said incidents such as last Tuesday’s truck rollover on the

Twenties soiree opens book fair BY BENJAMIN MILLAR

BOOKWORMS can show their love of all thing literary as part of National Bookshop Day activities this Saturday. Buoyed by the success of the inaugural Bookshop Day last year, bookshops Australia-wide are showcasing their place in the community by inviting local authors and residents to take part in readings and conversation about books. Deb Force, of Yarraville’s Sun Bookshop and The Younger Sun, says writers Josephine Rowe (Tarcutta Wake) and Chris Flynn (A Tiger in Eden) will become booksellers at the shop from 2.30-3.30pm. At The Younger Sun, celebrity booksellers will include Cath Crowley (10am), Danny Katz (11am), Claire Saxby (noon), Steven Lochran (1pm) and children’s book favourite Andy Griffiths (2pm). Visitors on the day get the chance to win a book a month for one year.

Professor Patrick McGorry became the accidental face of mental health when he was named Australian of the Year in 2010. Robert Fedele meets him two years on and finds his fight for mental health reform continues.

August 8, 2012

ITH a lineage deeply rooted in medicine, it’s not surprising Patrick McGorry followed the career that has gained him a national profile. ‘‘My dad and grandmother were doctors, my mother was a nurse. There’s a lot of medicine in the family,’’ he muses. The McGorry clan hail from Ireland. A teenage Patrick and his family emigrated in 1968, specifically to the seaside New South Wales town of Newcastle. He later progressed to university where he duly enrolled in medicine, completing four years of study before steering a course into matters of the mind. ‘‘Medicine I found a bit limiting,’’ he says. ‘‘Psychiatry, when I was a medical student, seemed much more fascinating ... the human condition and trying to understand it all.’’ A shift in thinking had already begun. ‘‘I was a bit reluctant to get involved because it didn’t treat people very well,’’ he recalls of the system. ‘‘I guess there was identification with the patients because they were getting such a raw deal. They were marginalised, very stigmatised in those days. It’s still a bit of a problem, but it’s getting better.’’ The wish to stick up for the underdog has never left McGorry, who moved to Melbourne in 1984 after studying psychiatry. He now lives in Essendon. He began his work in a research unit called the Early Psychosis Prevention and Intervention Centre (EPPIC), attached to a large public mental health program at the former Royal Park Hospital in Parkville. McGorry and his colleagues focused on young people who were hospitalised while experiencing their first episode of psychosis.


INSIDESTORY

‘‘It was horrible what they had to go through so we tried to understand how to treat them better, how to use less medication, how to build more psychological and social supports for them. ‘‘In those days they got medicated and that was about it, whereas now we’ve got a much more holistic approach. Medication is still a big part for me, but there’s a lot more to offer.’’ Today McGorry can be found not far from his old stomping ground, at the Orygen Youth Health Research Centre in Parkville, which grew out of (EPPIC). OYH has three main components: a specialised youth mental health clinical service, an internationally renowned research centre, and an integrated training and communications program. It treats people aged 15–25 with mental health issues in the western and north-western suburbs of Melbourne. ‘‘If you happen to have a mental health problem in this age group in the west you’re in much better hands than if you were in the eastern suburbs,’’ he admits. McGorry, 59, is also on the board of Headspace, the National Youth Mental Health Foundation, which now has 90 centres across Australia. In a modest office within a portable, he’s happy to open up on his views on the state of youth mental health. The softly spoken McGorry’s main concerns surround early intervention and reducing the chances of full-blown psychosis. ‘‘[It’s] applying the same principles that you apply for diabetes, cancer or heart disease to mental health. Trying to pick up the problem as soon as it actually appears so the young person’s life doesn’t have to become a smoking ruin before they get help.’’ Yet his stance on early psychosis prevention is no stranger to controversy. A quick Google search reveals several articles questioning the use of anti-psychotic drugs, and the risk of attempting to define illnesses resulting in the unnecessary medication of patients. McGorry is quick to correct what he sees as mistruths. ‘‘We don’t use medication in those early stages,’’ he corrects. ‘‘We use lifestyle and social and psychological interventions first and if they don’t work we move on to medication.’’ The argument against early intervention is intertwined with fears of creating a generation of hypochondriacs. ‘‘OK, well, it might be a bit worrying having these illnesses but on the other hand it means we can get real help at the earliest point. We don’t have to wait until we’re in dire straits. ‘‘We’re not too worried about diagnoses actually. We’re just trying to help young people. If you’re struggling you need someone to listen to your story and you need to get help. ‘‘We don’t want to make people dependent or create problems where they don’t exist, but these problems are real.’’ Asked about the history of mental health treatment and how far it’s come, McGorry flashes back to the ’80s. He says the 19th century asylum model that he trained in was only done away with in the ’90s. Before that treatment was rigid and the biggest

Pressed further, he says he’s felt the brunt of the tall poppy syndrome. ‘‘It was a big responsibility. I wasn’t that public a person, but I felt I had to go for it. ‘‘I’d been trying to get that support for years before that so it was a great gift in a way. ‘‘[But] there’s been a downside because the tall poppy problem definitely happens as well. It’s a risky thing to be that prominent, mainly from colleagues; I wouldn’t say from media or political people. It’s been a small number of colleagues I’ve experienced it from. I guess it’s par for the course.’’ So does he consider himself controversial? ‘‘I do because we just say it’s not good enough, the way mental health care is, and that’s part of the reason why we got in trouble with some of our colleagues, because they’re much more complacent. ‘‘They want to defend a status quo and that’s not good enough for a country like Australia. ‘‘We say we want it to be a lot better and we want young people and their families to have much more of a say over the way things are provided.’’ Orygen’s services include inpatient, acute, outreach, case management, psychosocial programs, peer and family support. The research centre leads a range of studies to better understand the biological, psychological and social factors that influence onset, remission and relapse of mental illnesses, in order to find better ways to prevent or reduce the impact of mental disorders for young people. McGorry offers examples of innovations, such as the use of fish oil to reduce the risk of psychosis, which has already seen pleasing results. Later, the discussion moves to suicide, an issue McGorry feels strongly about and wants to tackle. ‘‘There are people dying around the north west of Melbourne every year. There’d probably be about 30 or 40 youth suicides [a year] happening because of a lack of help for young people. So it’s a serious thing.’’ It seems the main argument surrounding the covering up of suicide is the potential for ‘copycat’ episodes, a notion McGorry doesn’t subscribe to. ‘‘I feel optimistic we can actually continue ‘‘Actually, most of the copycats are driven by the to improve the thing but we definitely need Facebook sort of avenue or word of mouth, not by community support.’’ mainstream media. Support of a different kind came when McGorry ‘‘The mainstream media reports the celebrity was named Australian of the Year in 2010. suicides anyway, which are the ones that are the Largely unknown, other than by those in the most dangerous. medical profession, McGorry suddenly became the ‘‘Whereas the ordinary suicide like John Smith in face of mental health.

And that’s the main thing that’s provided still. ‘‘So, in a way, the experience of the patient isn’t dramatically better in standard mental health care than it was back in the asylum days.’’ Yet while McGorry often laments the problems facing mental health, his outlook is largely positive. He views Orygen as a success and is optimistic about its future. ‘‘We kind of reinvented the thing over the past 20 years or so and attracted a lot of national and international interest.

Sayer, who settled in Australia and became a citizen three years ago, headlines a sell-out Last Night of the Proms concert at Williamstown Town Hall. He will perform with the Western Region Concert Band, Rosa McCarty, and SingWest. Rob Farnham will join dual-ARIA award winner Monique Brumby and Sunshine singer Daniela Corso in an acoustic concert at Williamstown RSL on Friday.

uyers looking for a property with park frontage should check out the limited number of blocks at Peet Limited’s Kingsford community in Point Cook. The 24-home site adjoins the estate’s southern park, the blocks ranging from 350 to 512 square metres. The lots, with frontages from 12.5 to 16 metres, will accommodate various home designs, from $185,000. Construction on the southern park is due to begin later this year. The land will include space for footy ovals, a playground, picnic shelter and basketball half-court. Peet Limited managing director and CEO Brendan Gore says Kingsford’s home sites are popular with most demographics, from young families to third-home owners. ‘‘Community assets like the Pethybridge Waterway and Kingsford park make this an ideal choice for young families,’’ Mr Gore said. Titled home sites are also selling at Kingsford with ready-to-build lots from $226,000 (for a 336-square-metre block) and larger lots (526sq m) from $295,000.

Dr. Tony Stubbs Eye Surgeon MB BS BSc(Hons)B Med Sc MS FRANZCO Dr. Tony Stubbs, Eye Surgeon, of The Williamstown Eye Centre says that just about anyone can have their vision restored and be rid of their glasses for almost all the time. And this is without the use of laser surgery. Dr Stubbs, a visiting specialist at the Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital who has worked with the Fred Hollows eye department at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, says he began his career through the inspiration of his father, Dr Maxwell Stubbs. “My father was a pioneer in cataract implant surgery and I did my training under him. He passed away three years ago but some of his patients still come in for a check-up. Not only is this inspirational, it also demonstrates that good surgery outlasts the surgeon,” Dr Stubbs says. A specialist who helps people who have been advised they are unsuitable for laser surgery, Dr Stubbs is also committed to demonstrating that age, corneal distortion or astigmatism are no barriers to eliminating the need for glasses. “One of my best moments was treating a 12-year-old girl who was struggling at school because of poor vision, even with the use of thick glasses. Now 10 years later, she still has 20/20 vision without glasses. That inspires me. “Seeing my patients’ bright smiles after surgery, as they stop squinting and can read without glasses, is definitely the best part of my job.” No referral is needed and no out-of-pocket expenses are incurred for an assessment to enable all options available to be considered.

A lifetime’s learning aids out miners This science ‘geek’ has followed numerous career paths, writes Rebecca Miller s a child, Dennis Franklin dreamed of being a marine biologist or a lawyer. He says he’s always been a science geek with a heightened sense of justice. Achieving big things was always on his professional agenda. ‘‘I’ve had a strange career pathway,’’ Mr Franklin, of Gisborne, says. ‘‘I started in the navy then after 10 years went back to university to study a doctorate in geology. After that I worked in oil and gas exploration and later in the information technology industry. ‘‘Now I’m a mining consultant. I help mining companies — mostly overseas, South African gold miners and Canadian miners — adopt new technology that will make their operations more effect-

I also enjoy pottering in my vegetable garden, and I keep some chickens.’’ The next step in his career involves another new challenge unrelated to geology or mining. ‘‘I’m hoping to get elected to the Macedon Ranges Shire Council in October so I can give more back to the community.’’

My seven-month stint at Davis Station working in the field was a life-changing experience. ‘‘It’s impossible not to be affected by Antarctica with its thousand shades of blue, its silence and, in those days, lack of digital distractions.

After nine weeks, Devils sing the song BY LANCE JENKINSON NORTH Footscray is likely to remain in the toptier Western Region Football League division 1 for a third straight season after consigning Sunshine Heights to relegation with a 73-point win at Ainsworth Reserve on Saturday. The Devils notched just their second victory of the season but deserve their top-flight status for the competitiveness they have shown in most matches, an element sadly lacking from the undermanned Heights all winter. Devils president Ashleigh Lewis said his side’s survival could be decided in the boardroom if a bold ‘two up, two down’ relegation-promotion system was adopted this season. ‘‘We’ll be in division 1 next year as long as the WRFL doesn’t change the rules. They are trying to push for two-up, two-down relegation. I don’t think it will go ahead,’’ Lewis said. ‘‘There’s not too many clubs interested in it.’’ Lewis doesn’t mince his words in reflecting on a season in which the Devils have remained stagnant when they had hoped for an improved year. ‘‘We expected to win a couple more games,’’ he said. ‘‘When you’re always losing it starts to take an effect on the players. You need to be winning or blokes will start to walk.’’

The Devils at least got a chance to sing the club song for the first time in nine weeks and were dominant after quarter-time. The shining light with six goals was Rikki Newton, who has impressed so much he wants to do a pre-season with Port Melbourne in the Victorian Football League to stake his claim for higher-level football. ‘‘He’s a young Aboriginal boy who’s lightning quick and his skills are unreal,’’ Lewis said. ‘‘He’s definitely going to finish top two in our best and fairest.’’ Kiya Smith has been used mainly on the wing this season, but player-coach Jason Clarke moved him into the forward line in the absence of Cameron D’Altera and he responded with four majors. The hard-at-it Tedesco brothers — Matthew and John — were outstanding through the midfield, while youngster Abdul-Kareem El-Hassan was a solid contributor in defence. The Devils have already started planning for next season. Lewis is under no illusions how important the season will be for the longer-term health of the senior set-up. ‘‘We’ve got 90 per cent of the list already signed up,’’ he said.

Next round: Albion v Sunshine Heights (Parsons Reserve), Deer Park v Altona (John McLeod Oval), Hoppers Crossing v Spotswood (Hogans Road Oval), North Footscray v St Albans (Hansen Reserve), Sunshine v Port Melbourne Colts (Kinder Smith Reserve).

YARRAVILLE mother Sarah Tait is savouring the glory of a silver medal in the women’s coxless pairs rowing at the Olympic Games last week. Tait, 29, and her rowing partner Kate Hornsey, surged home over the final 500 metres to grab silver — the first rowing medal for Australia at the London competition. The pair finished behind Great Britain’s Helen Glover and Heather Stanning, who were the host’s first gold medallists of the Games. Three-quarters of the way through the race, the Australian crew was fourth and with five strokes remaining they believed they had achieved bronze.

But as they hit the line they realised they’d won silver. Tait is captain of the Olympic rowing team at her third Olympics and the first mother selected in the squad. ■ Rachel Jarry and the Australian women’s basketball team were all set for a quarter-final clash with China this morning.

Another guest rider, Geelong invitee Adam Cullen, claimed a well-deserved win in B grade. Andrew Schieseck may find himself promoted after an impressive victory in C grade, winning the sprint from Ross Schubach and Matthew Whiting. Marty Kilduff made a barnstorming finish to win D grade.

WILLIAMSTOWN Swimming and Lifesaving Club’s inflatable rescue boat team is celebrating after winning two gold medals at the recent Australian championships. The club finished an outstanding fourth overall out of a massive 303 surf lifesaving clubs at the hotly contested meet at Ocean Beach, NSW.

The highlight for the weekend, however, was in the final of the IRB relay, in which 17 members came together to win the blue riband event over several strong Queensland clubs, including powerhouses Kurrawa and North Burleigh. ‘‘The achievements over the weekend really highlight the strength of young people in our club with over 70 per cent of the team being made up

of members under the age of 25,’’ WSLC spokesman Kane Treloar said. ‘‘The club is also proud that almost 50 per cent of the Victorian state inflatable rescue boat team was made up of Williamstown members, many of whom went on to become Australian champions in their own right later in the weekend.’’ The next challenge for the WSLC is the Victorian state championships in October. They were postponed earlier in the year due to bad weather. — Lance Jenkinson

Talent counts for nought as Gators crash BY LANCE JENKINSON ALTONA Gators were left to wonder how their Victorian Basketball League Big V women’s division 1 season spiralled out of control so quickly during the past month. The Gators returned home a shattered bunch after a premature exit from the finals with a 78-67 loss to a young and tenacious Latrobe City Energy at the Traralgon Basketball Stadium on Saturday night. Gators assistant coach Elisha Hogan told the Weekly it was one of the most disappointing ends to a season in her years in the sport. ‘‘To get knocked out so early with the quality we have in the team is

really disappointing.’’ The Gators arrived this season with intentions of challenging for a title. They lost shooting guard Stacey Barr to the US college system in the off season, but gained a WNBL calibre forward/centre in Brigitte Ardossi. Ardossi took the competition by storm, averaging 18.6 points, 10.6 rebounds, 2.3 assists, a steal and a block per game. She formed a powerhouse combination inside the paint with Louise Johnston, who averaged 12.3 points and 7.2 assists. At times, there was an over-reliance on the ‘bigs’ to get the job done. ‘‘Teams were switched on [to it],’’ Hogan said. ‘‘They were our only two

scorers in some games. They were getting double and even triple-teamed.’’ The return of Sharon Grieve from maternity leave was a good sign. The player-coach posted solid numbers and provided direction on the court with her experience. The unearthing of netballer-turnedbasketballer Nicole McMahon was another source of excitement, a handy bonus. And the Gators stuck true to the expectations for the best part of 15 weeks, sitting on top of the whole division for the most part. Then it all came crashing down. A road loss to Latrobe City was followed by concerning home losses to Warrnambool and Warrandyte.

And before you knew it, the slump had stretched into a fourth game and sudden death from the finals. Hogan says the Gators might have remained stagnant during their winning run when other teams were taking measures to improve. The Gators went into the elimination final down on confidence, and it showed. Despite the best efforts of Ardossi, Johnston, Emma Coyne and Grieve, the Gators’ best efforts were not close to matching the enthusiasm of the aptly named Energy. ‘‘All credit has to go to Latrobe,’’ Hogan said. ‘‘We just couldn’t stop their offence.’’ Attention now turns to the Gators’

sole surviving team, in the women’s youth league. The Gators have gone one-up in their best-of-three semi-final series against Craigieburn Eagles after Saturday’s commanding 54-43 win at the Craigieburn Leisure Centre. Games two and three, if required, will be at the Altona Sports Centre this weekend.

Blunt attack clips Reds

Sucker punch KOs Magic

LAVERTON Park is skating on thin ice with six rounds left in the Football Federation Victoria men’s provisional league 2 north-west season. The Reds let slip a massive opportunity to escape from the relegation zone, drawing 1-1 with West Preston at Merton Street on Saturday. Reds striker Vince De La Plaza said it was a game that his side bullied for the duration only to see all their hard work undone by a lack of cutting edge in attack. ‘‘We had a lot of chances that we didn’t put away,’’ he said. ‘‘They went up and scored from a free kick. After that, they just sat back, closed the game down and were happy with a point.’’ The Reds got the go-ahead goal through Jamie Marambio in the 15th minute. Marambio found the ball at his feet in the penalty box and needed no second invitation to ram it home. He was easily the most productive player on the park for the Reds and deserved the adulation after scoring. ‘‘At the start of the game, he did really well at the back, keeping everything tight,’’ De La Plaza said. ‘‘Then we pushed him into the midfield and he helped create opportunities in the second half.’’ The Reds had to find avenues to goal after West Preston found an equaliser in the 20th minute. They executed a perfectly struck free kick, leaving the Reds defence flat-footed, and jaws dropped. But it was simply not to be for the Reds, who find themselves in second-last and fighting for their survival. Their destiny could be shaped this weekend when they visit third-last Northern Roosters on Saturday. ‘‘It’s a must-win for us,’’ De La Plaza said. ‘‘Every game is winnable. It’s such an even competition this year.’’ — Lance Jenkinson

ALTONA Magic tasted defeat for the first time in more than a month in the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 1. The Magic’s four-game unbeaten run came to an end with a 2-1 loss to ladder-leader Port Melbourne Sharks at Paisley Park on Saturday. In a massive blow to the Magic’s promotion chances, the John Markovski-coached outfit slipped six points back from second-placed Pascoe Vale with just six games remaining. After a goalless first half, it was the Sharks who got on the front foot after half-time with a goal to Darryl Roach after just two minutes. The Magic left it late to respond, finding an 89th minute equaliser through a free kick from midfielder Rini Muriqi and they appeared to have bagged a point. Then came the knockout blow delivered by Sharks striker Haris Vrbovac with a late, late winner coming in stoppage time. In state league 2 north-west, Altona East Phoenix seems destined for mid-table obscurity after a 2-1 loss to Ballarat Red Devils left it eight points out of the promotion places. Altona City is in a spot of bother with its 2-0 loss to Preston Lions at BT Connor Reserve leaving it stuck at the bottom of the ladder. — Lance Jenkinson

Turn-up for the books as Jets win BY LANCE JENKINSON WESTERN Jets could not be faulted in their shock 33-point downing of the Sandringham Dragons in the TAC Cup at Avalon Airport Oval in Werribee on Saturday. The Jets have lamented their hot and cold form this season. Their inconsistency is a major reason why they’re likely to be watching this year’s finals from the sidelines. Jets coach Steven Kretiuk told the Weekly the worm turned for his side at the weekend when it all clicked into place for the Jets’ best four-quarter effort of the year. ‘‘We played a pretty good brand of footy. We set out to play a certain way before the game and I thought they did it to the letter. ‘‘The guys worked hard all day and even though it was close at threequarter-time, we controlled the game from the outset.’’ The Jets played no fewer than 11 bottom-age players in a sign that bodes well for the future. They didn’t let their more experienced teammates down, with livewire forward Omar Abou-Zeid, wingman James Sicily and marking option Jason Robinson the standouts. Kretiuk admitted he took a heavy influx of bottom-age players into the line-up with an eye to the future, but also to recognise their strong form at local level. ‘‘We’re giving them an opportunity because they deserve it. ‘‘They’ve got to earn their spot and train well, and they have to be playing good local footy.’’ Kretiuk was thrilled to see his leaders take charge. Spencer White worked smart within the team structures and was rewarded with five goals. Ashlin

Brown relished the chance to play forward with four of his own. The onball brigade dug in with Josh Bench, Charlie Nastasi, Harley Walshe and big man Scott Greenhough prolific. Bench is surely the one who would have gone into the recruiters’ notebooks with a commanding 33 disposals, 12 tackles and a goal. ‘‘He’s getting better and better as the year goes on,’’ Kretiuk said. ‘‘I’m hoping the recruiters who were at the ground are seeing something in this kid.’’ Daniel Burton shut out Dragons danger forward Xavier Richards, Burton appearing at ease with the task despite giving up five centimetres in height. ‘‘He controlled the game down back with a real aggressive brand of football,’’ Kretiuk said. ‘‘He had seven marks and four were contested.’’ The Jets have a bye this weekend and return on August 18 for an away trip to the Bendigo Pioneers. Meanwhile, Garry Hocking is the second former Western Jets coach to take over the main role at an AFL club this season, stepping up on Monday in the caretaker role at Port Adelaide after Matthew Primus was sacked. Hocking, a Geelong Cats team of the century member, coached the Jets in 2003. Mark Neeld is the other former Jet with a senior coaching gig with Melbourne.

INBRIEF Sailing Australia’s first individual gold medal at the London Games came from Tom Slingsby in the sailing on Monday. The victory would have resonated with a lot of people involved in the popular sport around the western suburbs, home to three clubs by the bay:Altona and Hobsons Bay yacht clubs and the Williamstown Sailing Club. Who knows, a future sailing gold medallist might just come from the west?

Basketball The University of Northern Colorado is bringing the excitement of NCAA college hoops to the western suburbs. The Bears have landed in Melbourne for the first stop on their two-week Australian tour and will be playing against the IndiSport Melbourne All Stars in an exhibition game at the Maribyrnong Sports Academy tomorrow. Bears coach BJ Hill said: ‘‘Our players, coaches, fans and administrators are excited to experience Australian culture, and we are all appreciative of this once-in-alifetime opportunity’’. The Bears will also play the Melbourne Tigers, Sydney Kings and the IndiSport Sydney All Stars.

Footscray got its Victorian Water Polo women’s state league 1 season off to a perfect start with an 11-7 win over rivals Essendon at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre on Tuesday night. But it was not such a crash-hot start for the men’s state league 1 team, edged out 13-11 by Essendon a night later. It’s a special time for the Scray with three of its members having a big impact in London for the Games: John Fox, as coach of the Australian men’s team; Lynne Morrison, section manager of the Australian women’s team; and Daniel Flahive, a referee.

Coach wonders how to inject life into sleeping Bulldogs BY LANCE JENKINSON FOOTSCRAY used its get-out-of-jail-free pass to mow down cellar-dweller Melbourne University 27-22 in the Victorian Rugby Union Premier 1 Dewar Shield at HG Smith Oval on Saturday. The Bulldogs made a positive start with left centre Shane Imo crossing the line first to give the visitors a lead after a 10-minute period of dominance, but that was all they could hang their hat on in an otherwise listless first half. Bulldogs coach Junior Naufahu said last week it was a danger game for his side despite Uni sitting at the foot of the ladder, and he was left to question the hunger of his side in the first half.

‘‘We started well, but after that first try we fell asleep. There was a lack of concentration and focus. ‘‘[Uni] are on the bottom but, like I said last week, they have been our bogey side. They showed up to play on Saturday.’’ The Bulldogs were powerless to stop the hosts from running in the next three tries. The Uni boys were up and about with a 22-13 lead. A comeback was a must if the Bulldogs wanted a top-two finish. The teams that finish in the prime first and second positions after a gruelling season have the luxury of a rest in the first week of the finals and

will host a final in the second week. Melbourne is already locked into top spot, leaving the Bulldogs (53 points), Southern Districts (52), Harlequins (51) and Moorabbin (51) to fight it out for that all-important second position in the last two weeks of the season. Sensing that, the Bulldogs mounted a spirited comeback, finding tries out of number eight Tuipene Apineru and right wing Mike Toetu and a spot-on kicking game from fly-half Martin Naufahu with three conversions and two penalties. Imo was the player with the biggest impact. ‘‘His attack was brilliant,’’ Naufahu said. ‘‘He kept cutting through gaps.’’ Keisuke Yamada was another who burnt Uni

with his quick thinking at the breakdown and fleet feet. One of two Japanese imports who have been a fixture in the Bulldogs team this year, Yamada has taken on a much heavier workload since compatriot Tomu Hiratsuka was signed to a professional contract back home a month ago. The Bulldogs continue to win, but Naufahu says they are ‘‘winning ugly’’, so they will need to snap out of their slumber for a match-of-theround battle with Harlequins at Henry Turner Memorial Reserve on Saturday.

Falcons swoop to snare super-side title BY LANCE JENKINSON CITY West Falcons have regained power in the Victorian Netball League championship division. The Marg Lind-coached super team made it three titles in the four years since the competition’s inauguration in 2009. The Falcons were breathing a sigh of relief after edging out never-give-in neighbours VU-Western Lightning 42-37 in the first all-western suburbs grand final at the State Netball and Hockey Centre on Saturday night. In a storyline reminiscent of their ’09 triumph over Boroondara Genesis, the Falcons went into the fourth quarter with scores deadlocked, then swooped on the spoils. Lind told the Weekly that her coaching staff picked the brains of the seasoned players at the end-of-third-period huddle, giving them a say in the shape and direction of the team heading into a crucial final 15 minutes. ‘‘We’ve got a bit of experience and we tapped into it. Interacting with players and empowering them to give us an idea into how they feel out there was important.’’ The general consensus was the Falcons were too conscious of Kathleen Knott in the first three quarters. The tall, athletic and hard-working goalshooter was a near-unstoppable force with a bucketful of goals in the first half. But there was a feeling the attacking structure had become predictable. The Falcons had a decision to make about outof-sorts goal attack Maggie Lind, who had little impact in the first 45 minutes and that was one of the main reasons they attacked through Knott. They either had to persist with the young rising star and hope she would recapture the form that made her tandem with Knott one of the most feared throughout the season, or give someone else a go. The decision to keep Lind in the game had a massive bearing on the result, the youngster producing a stunning last quarter. ‘‘I thought [Lightning goal defence] Brooke Thompson really did her over in the first three quarters,’’ Marg Lind said, ‘‘and I was borderline thinking, should I take her off? ‘‘They’d been trying to isolate Kath and focus on her too much and getting Maggie on the shot opened up the game. I think she shot five-from five straight up and took some pressure off Kath.’’ The Falcons started the game like they ended it, taking a 13-9 lead into the first break. Knott, who had never won a top-tier VNL premiership, seemed intent on adding one to her CV. The goalshooter missed the first goal of the game before her long arm span, tireless workrate and sharpshooting began to get on the nerves of Lightning goalkeeper Fiona Themann. The longer the game went on, however, the weaker the Falcons’ authority over the scoreboard became. Their lead was cut to just two at half-time and parity was restored after three. Suddenly, it was Lightning’s attacking combin-

Thompson — a director of traffic with ball in hand and a tower of strength in defence — was pivotal in getting the Lightning back on level terms in quarters two and three. But Lind’s sudden burst of irresistible netball in the fourth proved the turning point in the game, said Lightning coach Matt Hills. ‘‘I give credit to Maggie Lind, who played goal attack and was beaten for three quarters by Brooke Thompson, but her last quarter was key

to their performance.’’ The Lightning enjoyed a fairytale year — if not the storybook ending. They came from second-last with 3 1⁄ 2 wins a year ago to face off in the big one with a club in the midst of a dynasty. ‘‘We’re two years into a five-year plan,’’ Hills said. ‘‘This grand final was heartbreaking to lose but in the bigger picture it was a bonus.’’ Lind said a new training regime, an injection of youth and the arrival of prolific goalshooter Knott were factors in the Falcons’ return to the top after a season of rebuilding. ‘‘This is a good one because it shows that we’ve made the transition with the younger players.

‘‘We’ve been able to throw them in, in the heat, and in the end they’ve come through.’’ Falcons co-captain Christie Barnes was the grand final MVP for the second time in three seasons. The big-game player was busy in the midcourt, setting up a number of attacking forays. It was a massive achievement for the centre/ wing attack just to be on the court after she spent last winter on crutches following a knee reconstruction. ‘‘I was completely out last year,’’ she said. ‘‘It killed me sitting on the sidelines. I was just so rapt to be back out there. ‘‘It took me a while to get going but our whole team just built and tonight was a fairytale.’’ Falcons captain Brooke Thompson lamented her team’s slow start to the game and said it had been an issue all season long. The goal defence, easily best for her side, said the Lightning would go on in leaps and bounds in the coming years. ‘‘I couldn’t be prouder to be part of VU,’’ she said. ‘‘Look into the future and where we’re going. This finals series is the first of many to come.’’ — with Teo Pellizzeri
