Hobsons Bay Libraries are preparing to help local charities again this festive season with the Food for Fines program. The libraries are taking non-perishable foods instead of cash as payment for overdue charges. The program, which is now in its fourth year, is a unique program that benefits local charities, which are inundated by requests for help at this time of year. From Monday, 19th November until Sunday, 16th December, library members with overdue materials will be able to donate one food item to pay up to $10 in overdue charges, with no limit on how much they can pay. Food should be tinned or in sealed packages, such as tinned meat, fruit and vegetables. Expiry dates of the items must be 2013 or later. While borrowers will have the option to pay for their overdue fines with food or money, people with no fines can also contribute. Coordinators from emergency food relief agencies will then collect the food, package it into hampers and deliver them to families in need. For details, call 9932 1000 or visit www.hobsonsbay.vic.gov.au

Sunday, 18th November 1.00pm to 3.00pm Friends of Altona Coastal Park maintenance day Meet and register at the Ford Altona Road, Altona Details: Conservation Ranger 9932 1000.

t was the workplace revolution that never happened. It was supposed to help unclog our roads, increase productivity and reduce stress levels. It was the humane solution to fluorescent batteries where workers toiled side by side in cubicles — together but alone — routinely debeaked by human resources departments. In this, Australia’s inaugural National Telework Week, it seems a good time to ask whatever happened to telecommuting? The week itself is part of the federal government’s National Digital Economy Goal — a concerted push to maximise the use of highspeed broadband and double (by 2020) the number of people who work remotely. A present just 6 per cent of Australian workers benefit from an arrangement with their employers that allows them to work from home. And, according to a decade-long Melbourne University study, the numbers are declining. This puts us well behind the global average, with an estimated one in five workers telecommuting internationally and nearly 10 per cent working from home every day. Interestingly, telecommuting rates are highest in non-OECD countries — that’s those that arguably have the least-efficient technological infrastructure to support it. It comes down to what researchers coyly call cultural issues. It seems that in the West, most managers simply don’t trust their workers enough to let let them out of sight. So in spite of a body of evidence to show teleworkers are more productive, less stressed and more committed to their employer than their office counterparts, most remain trapped in Kafka-esque bureaucracies. With the social cost of congestion set to reach $20.4 billion by 2020 according to the federal government’s Bureau of Transport and Regional Economics, it’s high time Dilbert, the office-cubicle tragic, went home.

Link to autism ‘breakthrough’ BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK A RARE disorder has been linked to autism, according to the mother of Victoria’s only known adult sufferer. Seaholme resident Maree Kinniburgh, whose daughter has a disorder of the corpus callosum (DCC), said diagnoses in babies were booming thanks to improvements in medical technology. Abbie Kinniburgh, a 22-year-old student at Footscray’s Victoria University, is one of five known adults in Australia with DCC. She has been diagnosed with a partial agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC). The corpus callosum is a structure in the middle of the brain which transfers information between the two hemispheres. According to Professor Linda Richards, of the Queensland Brain Institute, ‘‘scientists have identified over 60 genes that are important for formation of the corpus callosum in mice, but we have not yet translated this knowledge into understanding how the corpus callosum forms in human beings’’. She said malformation could result in deficits in social interaction, and problems with language development, sleep, reading, writing and memory. ‘‘More severe cases can have deficits in sensory and motor processes, where children don’t learn to walk or have visual or hearing impairments.’’ Ms Maree Kinniburgh, who is the vice-president of a new support group called Australian Disorders

of the Corpus Callosum (AusDoCC), said the Royal Children’s Hospital had more than 70 babies diagnosed with DCC. She said improvements in medical technology, such as MRI scans, had resulted in more babies diagnosed with the disorder. ‘‘Babies are being picked up even in utero with missing corpus callosum.’’ Ms Kinniburgh said leading US researcher Elliott Sherr, after two years of study, was finding links between autism and DCC. ‘‘I think the link to autism is going to be huge. ‘‘When Abbie was growing up they used to say, no, autism is a behavioural condition and you have a physical defect. And they diagnosed her with non-verbal learning disorder at one stage . . . ‘‘We’ve since found out that kids in America get an autism diagnosis because they’re going to get funding. Abbie’s never been tested for autism, but she has some of the traits and she would probably come out on the [autism] spectrum.’’ Ms Kinniburgh said similar traits included Abbie ‘‘not liking things changing, not looking people in the eye, just doing one thing at a time, not understanding jokes and humour and taking things literally, and not liking to be touched. ‘‘Her neuropsychiatrist said he’s just going to run her through the [autism] questionnaire next session because we haven’t ever accessed anything because she hasn’t fitted the group, whereas if she’d got on the autism spectrum we might have been able to do some social skills

‘Like autism’: Abbie and Maree Kinniburgh are raising awareness of a disorder that’s not as rare as people thought. Picture: Darren Howe training which she should have had earlier. ‘‘ACC is a very distinct disorder on its own which needs recognition and has had virtually none in the past in Australia.’’ Abbie was accidentally diagnosed with DCC when she was two. ‘‘At birth, they diagnosed her with adrenal hypoplasia — she wasn’t growing,’’ Ms Kinniburgh said. ‘‘Then they did an MRI when she was two — and MRIs were really new then — but that was to see whether her pituitary was working and it wasn’t there. ‘‘And when they discovered that, they also mentioned that she had dysgenesis of the corpus callosum. ‘‘The doctor was over from Eng-

land; he actually wrote on the letter, there was a study in England with six patients who have both those conditions and they’re all mentally retarded but Abbie seems to be doing all right. That was what he actually wrote. ‘‘He went back to England and everyone ignored the ACC because the pituitary stuff was . . . life threatening.’’ Abbie said the AusDoCC support group would help parents whose babies were just being diagnosed. ‘‘I think it definitely will because we need more knowledge about it,’’ she said. ‘‘Most people haven’t heard of it. The easiest way to describe it is it’s similar to autism.’’

Mighty racket raised against rat runners BY BENJAMIN MILLAR FOOTSCRAY and Yarraville residents, fed up with trucks ‘rat-running’ through residential streets to avoid paying tolls, are venting their frustration by blockading one of the area’s busiest roads. The Maribyrnong Truck Action Group (MTAG) will close down Shepherd Bridge later this month in a protest demanding that the state government fast-track work on linking the port with the West Gate Freeway. Musicians and a mass sing-along of protesters will block the road as part of the ‘Deliver Us From Diesel’ action aimed at claiming back the streets. MTAG spokesman Peter Knight said building ramps to and from the West Gate Bridge to link the freeway to the port would take 10,000 trucks a day off local streets suffering Melbourne’s worst diesel pollution. “[The ramps] have been on VicRoads’ books since the Kennett era and are shovel-ready,” he said. “But instead of getting on with it, the government rabbits on about a pie-in-the-sky tunnel which, at best, will not be completed for

15 years. And even then it’s doubtful whether it will solve our truck problems.” Mr Knight said that even if the tunnel was built a toll would deter trucks from using it when they could still drive through residential streets. ‘‘They could already save time by taking the Bolte Bridge from the ports, but they don’t want to because there’s a toll on it,’’ he said. This, in turn, impacts on the health of residents, as reflected by a recent World Health Organisation report declaring diesel pollution to be carcinogenic. Mr Knight argued that residents had been left with little alternative but to take their protest to the streets. “We’ve been to countless meetings with VicRoads, the government, the EPA and [Maribyrnong] council, and our very reasonable requests are ignored,” he said. “We don’t expect truck-free streets, but 20,000 a day and rising is just too many.” The blockade has the approval and co-operation of Victoria Police who will block the traffic from 8-8.30am on November 27 for what Mr Knight said should be a fun protest with a serious message. “We have some of the most prominent musi-

cians in the west and we’re going to raise a sound that they will hear in Spring Street,” he said. “Bring something to bang, blow or strum.”

VicRoads regional director Patricia Liew said the organisation was aware of the protest and was liaising with Victoria Police on the matter.

The summaries make no mention of the Truck Action Plan announced by the previous Labor government. “The tollway is aimed at cars, not trucks or freight. It will not get trucks off residential streets,” Mr Barber said. Maribyrnong Truck Action Group (MTAG)

spokesman Peter Knight welcomed the call for an inquiry. He said residents had been left to fight for solutions in the face of ‘‘a wall of indifference’’ from the government and bureaucrats. “VicRoads has no energy, no ideas, no imagination and no goodwill. This has never been about an either/or solution. We need the freeway ramps regardless of what else they do.’’ Mr Knight described the joint Maribyrnong Council-VicRoads review of night and weekend curfews as “a complete waste of time”. Roads Minister Terry Mulder did not respond to requests for comment.

Ms Hartland said local streets could not sustain the expected doubling in freight volume from 2.5 million containers a year to more than five-million by 2025. “Despite this looming truck problem, we’ve seen no action from the Baillieu government in their two years,’’ she said. ‘‘The government has failed to come up with a freight strategy or a rail freight target, and the West Gate ramps truck bypass project remains ‘under review’,” she said. “We’re seeing the number of trucks on our streets increasing rapidly, and more trucks means more crashes, more damage to roads, more air

Noisy work ‘not curbed by plan’ BY BENJAMIN MILLAR You can bank on it: Commonwealth Bank’s Tran Tuong and Jacky Tucker, from Women’s Health West, discuss the project. Picture: Darren Howe

Brush strokes a healing balm CHILDREN exposed to family violence have a chance to begin healing thanks to a new grant to Women’s Health West (WHW). The $5200 Commonwealth Bank community grant will help the Footscray-based service run ‘Little Picassos’ art therapy workshops for children aged up to 12 who have witnessed family violence or experienced emotional, physical or sexual abuse. WHW’s two part-time children’s counsellors are the only specialist counsellors in Melbourne’s west

providing free help for children suffering trauma following family violence. Counsellor Sally said children were present at about 2500 family violence incidents in Melbourne’s west in the year to June, but the service was funded to see only 95 children. She said traumatised children had difficulty learning and being able to play or develop emotionally, but the program could slowly turn their lives around. — Benjamin Millar

THE Regional Rail Link project has been rammed through without the necessary environmental planning, according to a state MP. The Weekly last week reported that round-the-clock use of heavy machinery, truck traffic, noisy generators and bright lights were causing sleepless nights for Footscray residents during construction along the railway corridor. Residents say the problem has been going on since Easter and is now affecting their health. The project’s planning controls require a plan for managing environmental effects such as noise during construction and operation. In June last year, Planning Minister Matthew Guy told Parliament the plan was required three months before major construction begins “and that timeline will be adhered to. I am expecting

it fairly soon’’. Under questioning in Parliament last month, Mr Guy said he had approved the environmental management plan although he couldn’t recall when. He conceded that the plan was still incomplete, with a section on operational noise due at the end of the year. But state leader of the Greens Greg Barber said it was ridiculous that an environmental plan was being worked on after the project was under way. He suggested the plan was being created to fit the work rather than used to guide how work should be carried out. “The project was only approved on the basis that an environmental management plan would become part of the rule book for construction,” he said. Construction will intensify into the new year as the railway line is closed from December 28-30 and January 4-13. The minister’s office did not respond to requests for comment.

SKY High advocates hit rock bottom BY BENJAMIN MILLAR PARENTS pushing for a new high school in the Yarraville area say they have hit a brick wall with the current government. The Seddon, Kingsville, Yarraville (SKY) High working group’s decade-long push for the return of a secondary school to the area has stalled since the Liberal government came to power two years ago. Spokeswoman Janine Lloyd says: “There are now unexplainable delays on the part of both the Education Department and the minister’s office that are creating frustration among our group, and it’s increasingly difficult to tell our membership of over 1300 families to be patient.” Ms Lloyd said the problem would only get worse as a forecast 50 per cent population increase in Maribyrnong created a gap in public education. In 2010, the Department of Education commissioned a demographic report on the area, which is now being updated with this year’s figures. The report uses a range of data, includ-

Maribyrnong complex manager Jason Menzel said his team was excited to be part of the wheelchair-friendly garden project. “Gardening is a great way to get outside and enjoy the fresh air.

But Ms Lloyd said SKY High had been left in the dark as to the next steps in the process. “It’s particularly frustrating, given that in August 2010 the previous government had organised stakeholder forums, identifying solutions to our education black hole, for presentation to the SKY community in early 2011 — one and a half years ago,” she said. “Unfortunately, the group has seen few signs of progress since the current government was elected.” SKY High has written to Education Minister Martin Dixon seeking a meeting. The group will be building a “pop-up school” behind Alpha Bakehouse near Yarraville station from 10am-noon this Saturday. Mr Dixon’s spokesman, Ashley Gardiner, said the department was still analysing the report. ‘‘Representatives of SKY High will be invited to meet senior officers from the department when this work is finished.’’

Space to spin a yarn BY BENJAMIN MILLAR

Get behind the scenes and discover the hidden creativity of artists living and working in Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west.

BUDDING writers will soon have a space to call their own thanks to an initiative dubbed the 100 Story Building project. The project will help disadvantaged children and young people in Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inner-west develop their writing and reading skills outside the classroom. Program director and co-founder Lachlann Carter says the idea is to get children involved with all aspects of publishing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is about being involved in real-life, authentic publishing projects. They are not only learning about the writing process but also have the opportunity to create published works.â&#x20AC;? The centre will be the first of its kind in Melbourne when it opens in Footscray or Flemington next March. It will offer free, creative writing workshops, publishing projects and after-school programs to more than 1000 children from diverse and disadvantaged communities in the first year. Mr Carter says the program will work

closely with schools to provide children with a space outside the classroom where they can feel comfortable and be creative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The teachers we work with in the innerwest are so time-poor and the schools are generally under-resourced and under a lot of pressure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;An arts-rich education is so important, as is having a space that is their own.â&#x20AC;?

Mobilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Court Bill for Bay Pollution On 22 October 2012 at Melbourne Magistratesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Court, Mobil Refining Australia Pty Ltd (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mobilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;) was found guilty of a charge brought by the Environment Protection Authority (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;EPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;) of causing an environmental hazard. The charge followed the discharge of oil on 21 August 2009 into the waters of Port Phillip Bay, during the transfer of crude oil from an oil tanker to the terminal occupied and operated by Mobil at Gellibrand Pier, Williamstown. The discharge was caused by the rupture of Mobilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cargo discharging arm, when the vessel was pushed off the berth by gale force winds. Patches of the discharged oil were detected at Gellibrand Pier, St Kilda Pier, St Kilda Beach and Middle Park Beach. The Court convicted Mobil and ordered it to pay $150,000 to Port Phillip EcoCentre Incorporated, for the Bay Care Action and Awareness Project, which involves recruiting, coordinating and training volunteer guides to manage and educate visitors of the St Kilda penguin colony; supporting the expansion of a litter reduction program from St Kilda to other bayside areas within the City of Hobsons Bay, Bayside City Council and Wyndham City Council municipalities; and focusing on educating students and the general public about penguins and the bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural values, using a mobile interpretative display to be deployed at schools and other public spaces. Mobil was also ordered to pay $135,000 for the EPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costs. Since the incident Mobil has updated its procedures at Gellibrand Pier, and subscribed to the Bureau of Meteorologyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s faxed weather alert service to prevent a recurrence of this incident. The court also ordered publication of this notice.

Eight-hour wait for mental care BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM MENTAL health patients in Melbourne’s west, including those from Maribyrnong and Hobsons Bay, are languishing in waiting rooms with one in three waiting more than eight hours to receive care at Sunshine Hospital. The June quarter performance figures released by the state government earlier this month reveal 115 mental health patients had to wait eight or more hours before being admitted to the hospital. This was up from 96 in the previous quarter and up more than 30 per cent on the same time last year. Sunshine Hospital, responsible for a catchment including Maribyrnong and Hobsons Bay, had the longest waiting times for mental health treatment and hospital admissions in Victoria. Werribee Mercy Hospital had the next longest, with 73 patients waiting longer than eight hours, followed by Royal Melbourne, with 64 patients.

Free t food rme Gou by “Flying Woks”

Williamstown Labor MP Wade Noonan said the figures revealed that $500 million cuts to the health system by the state government were having a devastating impact. “Leaving mentally ill patients languishing in emergency departments is simply not good enough.” Melbourne Health is responsible for mental health care in the western suburbs. A Melbourne Health spokeswoman said demand for services had increased. She said mental health patients might also have physical injuries and substance abuse issues which needed to be treated before they could be admitted for psychiatric care. Four new mental health beds and additional staff will be added at Sunshine Hospital early next year. A Health Department spokeswoman said the opening of the beds, with the appointment of a state mental health bed coordinator, was expected to improve access and reduce waiting times.

INSIDESTORY In August, 100 of the most influential African Australians were honoured for their contribution to Australian society in a ceremony at Sydney’s Opera House. The honour list encompassed entrepreneurs, celebrities, community leaders, academics and professionals. With a vibrant African population, Melbourne’s west produced several winners. ROBERT FEDELE meets three prominent leaders.

Out of Africa S

HE was once a famous singer in her home town of Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, but these days Bitsat Seyoum is happy living a quieter life. ‘‘I knew when I started living here, that same life I’d never get it again,’’ she says with only a tiny amount of regret. I meet Bitsat at the Footscray restaurant she’s been running with her husband since 2007. It’s mid afternoon and empty, just the hum of the radio in the background. Bitsat pulls up a chair and begins telling her story of the journey that brought her to

Australia. She grew up with four brothers and two sisters and recollects a happy childhood. Her father was an engineer, her mother a housewife. Her world, and her family’s, was turned upside down when her father died suddenly. Bitsat says everything changed after that and the family struggled to regroup, but somehow they moved on. Where does the singing come in? That, she says, began in early childhood when she would hum and sing while helping her mother clean and cook.

I ask her if that’s where the dream to become a singer was born? ‘‘No. At that time singing was something bad,’’ she corrects. ‘‘People didn’t want to push you to sing [as a career]. That was for the lower class.’’ Bitsat discovered she had talent and a betterthan-average voice when singing at school. ‘‘People, they started talking about me . . . friends. They said you have a lovely voice. When you sing we feel happy.’’ At 16, she begged her mother to send her to the national theatre, but no such acceptance was forthcoming. ‘‘My mother, she was crazy,’’ Bitsat half jokes. ‘‘She said if you go there, you are not my daughter.’’ Bitsat surrendered and quit singing, but not for long. At 18, she left home and began churning out traditional Ethiopian tunes in a nightclub. Before long, she signed a contract to record an album, developed a cult following and became a recognisable face around the country. ‘‘If I’m living with my mum I know she will kill me. So I ran away from home and started living with a friend. ‘‘Within two months I had a contract for an album. After four or five months I became famous all over Ethiopia. My mum, she called me and said come back,’’ she laughs. In time, Bitsat bought her own nightclub, a hub that would become a popular hangout for locals for 14 years. ‘‘I was travelling all over the world with concerts. It was a great time. Everything in my life was changing, and for my family as well.’’ Which brings us to Australia, which she travelled to in 2006 for a concert to celebrate the Ethiopian community’s millennium celebrations. Bitsat ended up loving it here and never left. Today, she performs regularly across Melbourne and sings at the restaurant every fortnight. She describes Footscray as ‘‘like home’’ and feels humbled by the honour, at first believing it was a joke when notified by organisers of her ‘top 100’ status. ‘‘It’s a big achievement for me. I never thought with the doctors, lawyers and social workers that I would get something like that. When they chose me I was really happy.’’

t Albans artist Tamirat Gebremariam, too, was surprised by his award. He studied at the school of Fine Art at Addis Ababa university in 1993 then moved to Egypt where he worked as a freelance artist and went on to have several solo and group shows. During his early years he worked by day and painted by night. The Ethiopian-born migrant moved to Australia

in 2000. Today he can be found in a tiny studio at the Victorian College of the Arts in South Melbourne. He completed his masters in visual art in 2010 with the University of Melbourne and is now working on his craft with the help of a two-year scholarship from the university. He describes his style as traditional Ethiopian art with a contemporary touch. Does he feel truly Australian? ‘‘It’s my home now,’’ he says. ‘‘I’ve got citizenship. Here I’m living with harmony in society.’’ Tamirat hopes to make a living from his chosen profession and extend his expertise. Asked about being named ‘one of the 100 most influential African Australians’, he says it’s for the next generation and will give them cause o dream and prosper. ‘‘My advice to the young generation is to keep their strength and their creativity. They need support from the older generation.’’

n Flemington, Jesuit Social Services youth worker Asha Saleh agrees. Asha has been there and done it before and is now using her experience to help the youth and leaders of tomorrow. Born in Eritrea, her family moved to Sudan when she was young to escape the war. Sponsored by Asha’s brother, they then migrated to Australia. Asha was just nine and found life in Australia a tough slog at North Melbourne Primary School. ‘‘I didn’t speak a word of English. It was really hard to fit in and make friends.’’ Yet it was Asha’s early struggle that would eventually set the foundations for her career path. She’s now a youth worker with Jesuit Social Services where she assists newly arrived young people, predominantly from the Horn of Africa. ‘‘This is why I work here. I know how it feels. I’ve been through it and I relate to my community and the young people and how they feel.’’ Asha initially studied food and science at university but found the industry wasn’t for her. Between studying, though, she always volunteered in the community, especially with youth, organising events for young people in the area. Her sister held her current job before her and when it came on the market Asha grabbed it with both hands. She works in JSS’s African Program, which, among many things, provides peer support and mentoring to young people living in public housing in Flemington and nearby suburbs. Most of them are newly arrived from Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia and Sudan. ‘‘I feel like I’m doing something, making a difference.’’ Asha seems genuinely humbled by having been named one of the ‘100 most influential African Australians’ and points to others surrounding

her for their ongoing support. The programs she helps spearhead include a homework club for primary and secondary school students and an art project titled She Can Create, which has engaged a group of girls aged 14 to 16 to practise art such as fashion, photography, multimedia and music. ‘‘It’s good to be contributing, helping young people build their confidence and sharing your experience. It means a lot to me.’’ The only downside is that Asha can only work with people for five years before government funding runs out to support them. ‘‘It’s really hard when you’re working with someone and then you have to say goodbye, even though you know they still need support.’’ Asha still has dreams of her own. She’s already an ambassador with the North Melbourne Football Club and one day hopes to get into a government role helping support refugees. ‘‘This is home for me. And that’s what I tell young people and other leaders. We really need to appreciate what we have here and make the most of it.’’

THE selfless generosity of Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 700,000 carers will be marked this Sunday with a celebration walk at Maribyrnongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coulson Gardens. Ambassador Moira Kelly (pictured) says Carers Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural Walk to Care is a chance to reflect on â&#x20AC;&#x153;these extraordinary peopleâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are under enormous mental, emotional and often physical strain,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 24-hour-a-day labour of love.â&#x20AC;? As the adoptive mother of originally conjoined twins, Trishna and Krishna, and Emmanuel and Ahmed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both with disabilities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ms Kelly, the 2003 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;04 Victorian of the Year, says a smile and acknowledgement can mean the world to a carer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be a very lonely thing,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she says. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We think we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discuss our needs.â&#x20AC;? Australian Unity Wellbeing Index research in 2007, measuring how satisfied Australians are with their lives, found carers had the lowest â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wellbeingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of any large group. The smallest thing can make the biggest difference and a little kindness can go a long way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t underestimate a kind word; it gives you a real lift as a carer,â&#x20AC;? Ms Kelly said. Carers Victoria CEO Caroline Mulcahy said there were 2.6 million unpaid carers in

Ex-sailor hits the high Cs HEN Footscray’s Bob Roest starts singing there’s really no stopping him. The former sailor might be more at home on the high seas than hitting a high C, yet at 83, he’s still pouring his heart into his two great loves – music and the union movement. This weekend Bob will mark 12 years with the Victorian Trade Union Choir in the I’ll Be There concert, sharing personal stories, union songs and the rich history of the trade union movement. “Music has always been a big part of the trade union movement,” Bob says. ‘‘You look back to the brass bands in England . . . singing was always a good way for groups of working people to get together.” He credits a ‘joker’ friend for roping him into the choir by telling the choir master he was looking to join when he had simply dropped by to find some lyrics to the rousing song Joe Hill. “There are about 20 of us and it’s great. It is all about teamwork, working together.’’ A lifelong seafarer and staunch trade unionist, Bob now calls Footscray home. To celebrate 22 years of voicing support

Enjoy a leisurely pace of life Summer months will be spent lazing on the beach or relaxing in one of the many indoor or outdoor living spaces, writes Tegan Forder wners have made the most of this sand-coloured rendered house, just metres from the beach, to create a comfortable home for everyone, including the family pet. Summer months will be spent lazing on the beach or relaxing in one of the many living areas inside and out. One of these positions is on a decked balcony amid established gardens in the front yard — the perfect position to watch the world go by. Inside, the open-plan lounge room and dining area are pictures of modernity with a white and latte colour palette, niche walls perfect for wall-mounted televisions and plenty of windows letting in the natural light. But it’s the period-style features that give the rooms character with ceiling rosettes and decorative cornices, and a fireplace with mantel in the lounge room. Polished floorboards, including jarrah, are a feature throughout. The French provincial-inspired kitchen has white stone benchtops, white painted wooden cabinetry, dishwasher, and a 900mm Smeg stainless-steel cooker. A butler’s pantry has built-in shelving and bench space, and fridge nook.

O

Out the back, past storage cupboards and a laundry, is a spacious sunlit living room thoughtfully modernised through use of white paint on the original wooden panelled walls and exposed beams. The main bathroom with an oval spa is also down the hall, and there is a separate toilet. The main bedroom has built-in wardrobes. Three more bedrooms are upstairs, one with built-in wardrobes, ceiling fan and split-system airconditioning unit and a purple feature wall. Another has a blue feature wall, built-in wardrobes with mirrorfaced sliding doors, and ceiling fan. A third is smaller and could be a good nursery or study. The bedrooms share a bathroom with shower. The backyard has a sunny north-facing aspect — perfect for vegie gardens — and there is a children’s play area complete with bark-chip surface and cubbyhouse with slide. Lawn, low-maintenance plantings and a large undercover entertainment area makes it a perfect haven for the whole family. There’s plenty of space to store cars and other toys with a double garage out back and a single garage at the end of a side driveway.

An Important Announcement From Frank Trimboli Real Estate November, 2012 To Our Valued Clients, We are very proud to announce that as of 12th November, 2012, we will combine forces with the powerful Thomson network of offices, one of Melbourne’s leading boutique real estate agents. This is a very exciting time for us and our team. We’ve been based in Footscray for over 50 years and in that time, have witnessed its transformation from a village of migrants and workers to a highly sought-after, cosmopolitan hotspot. As such, we feel that the time has come for us to change too so that we can continue to offer you a more comprehensive service; a service that will enable you to take advantage of the breadth and depth of people and resources that only a network like Thomson’s can provide. So, what does this mean for you? Simply put, it will be business as usual. You’ll still see the same friendly faces and receive the same outstanding customer service you’ve come to know and expect from our trusted team of agents. You’ll still find us at the same location too, but what you will notice is that our office will be transformed very shortly to feature the striking black, red and white trademark colours that make the Thomson brand so distinctive. What will change is that we can now promote and expose your sales or rental property to a far wider audience than ever before. With over 50 experienced and professional agents with offices spanning over 70 suburbs across the state, we can now reach buyers and renters from Footscray to Northcote to Mentone and everywhere in between, meaning you now get massive exposure at no extra cost.

rduci artres and John Ve Trimboli, John Ch nk Fra n, so om Th e (Left to right) Georg

In short, you get the knowledge and wisdom of a truly local team backed up by the power and resources of one of Melbourne’s most trusted, respected and successful networks. It’s literally the best of both worlds - for us, and you. We look forward to continuing the journey with you now and in the future. Yours sincerely,

John Verduci

Real Estate tips from Gazumped at Auction The Real Estate Institute of Victoria, like many industry experts, has spent several years watching with interest the Victorian laws on bidding at auctions. Every year bidding incidents at a handful of auctions highlight the need to amend the law to ensure that when a property is knocked down to the highest bidder, a binding contract exists and they cannot be gazumped by another bidder making a late bid. This is not the case with real estate auctions presently - no binding sale exists until the successful bidder and the vendor have signed a contract. The reason for this is historic and dates back hundreds of years to a time when most people could not read or write. To prevent frauds the English parliament enacted a law requiring all land contracts to be written and signed, if they were to be enforceable. This law was adopted in Victoria in the nineteenth century and has been with us ever since.

Often sought, seldom found 13 Esplanade, Williamstown

When bidding at property auctions in Victoria, these other rules also apply:                        

               

                 

during the auction.

Price: Contact agent Expressions of interest: Close November 22 at 5pm Agent: Jas Stephens Yarraville, 9316 9000

The REIV has previously written to the Attorney General, asking for the law on signed contracts to be changed to prevent incidents at public auctions which can be distressing for all concerned. It is important the public has confidence in the outcome of real estate auctions and for that reason a timely change to the law is necessary.

â&#x2014;?

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not everyday a waterfront house with five bedrooms becomes available, but this circa 1858 Victorian is bound to attract you. The luxurious three-bedroom house has a northfacing lounge room, living-dining space and kitchen with walk-in pantry. A decked area has views to the water, while a pool impresses outdoors. A cellar with 2160-bottle capacity is a bonus. Hydronic heating, airconditioning, ducted vacuum, surround sound and a double garage are among extras.

Future look: The Stevedore Project celebrates the historic relevance of the former gasometer site.

A nod to town’s historic past uyers looking for a new, lowmaintenance property in the heart of Williamstown may be interested in the ones being built on the former gasometer site in Stevedore Street. Dubbed the Stevedore Project, 27 contemporary townhouses will be built at the site and are due for completion in early 2014. ‘‘The existing gasworks structures will partially remain and be incorporated into the design to celebrate the historic relevance of the former use,’’ says Mark Sinton, director

B

of Miceli Oldfield Sinton Architects. Each townhouse —most three levels— will have airconditioning, heating, intercom, kitchen with Smeg appliances, an alarm, and secure, underground car parking. Floor plans of two or three bedrooms and up to three bathrooms will be available. Each property will range from 128 to 184 square metres in size, with prices from $650,000-$835,000.

Now the fun starts at Heartlands Next step begins in creating a community families can enjoy esidents of Tarneit’s new community The Heartlands are a step closer to an actionpacked lifestyle. Work has started on the estate’s $2 million recreation and health centre Club Heartlands. The club will have a fitness centre and outdoor pools with views of the seven-hectare wetland and park areas, all within walking distance of home sites. Asset1 sales director Mark Adams said the new centre complemented the dynamism of the estate and the long-term development of the community, with health-focused, family-friendly services at its core. ‘‘Couples and families are taking more time to weigh up their options when it comes to choosing their forever home and location. Couples want to do their bit to make sure their families have the best opportunities at hand in a community that’s well thought out. ‘‘It’s important for residents to have access to important services as soon as possible, rather than having to wait years down the track, so we

R

Leisure time: Soon-to-be developed Club Heartlands. plan our communities around the inherent benefits of the estate and aim to construct them early in the development stage.’’ He added that creating a community was more than just laying roads and that the designers of The Heartlands created the community by thinking like the residents who moved there. ‘‘We applied these principles to The Heartlands and have captured what really matters — early access to community facilities, peaceful

High-flying Kight rescues Dogs BY LANCE JENKINSON FOOTSCRAY Edgewater has staged a remarkable recovery to post a competitive 242 on day one against Melbourne in the Victorian Premier Cricket at Merv Hughes Oval on Saturday. The Bulldogs were looking at a disastrous total as they limped to 8-71, but the home side’s chances received a massive boost with a stunning middle to lower-order revival. Dylan Kight, a star of last summer, had been quiet with the bat heading into the game for a variety of reasons. For starters, the productivity of the batsmen above him limited him to just two knocks in the opening four games. Then on the rare occasions when Kight found himself in the middle, he failed with scores of five and 10. But Kight, a bona fide star of this competition, was never going to be down for long. The rising star played one of his most patient innings to resuscitate the Bulldogs. Kight made 81 off 224 balls and spent nearly five-and-a-half hours in the middle. It wasn’t a lone hand — it couldn’t be with the pickle his top order had left him in. Michael Kelliher, who came in at No.10, produced a great tail-ender’s performance with 78 off 178 balls. Kight and Kelliher figured in a

superb 110-run ninth wicket partnership. Kight was not finished, powering on with the assistance of Brad Robertson, who made 22 not out as the score passed 200. To the relief of the Demons, Kight’s downfall would be of his own doing with a run out, but not before dragging his side back into the contest and setting up what should be a thrilling finish on Saturday. Meanwhile, young pup Guy Walker posted his maiden Premier Cricket century in the seconds. Walker was the cornerstone of the Bulldogs’ massive 328 against the Demons at the Albert Ground.

INBRIEF Cricket Yarraville Club rebounded from its firstup loss with a 169-run mauling of McKinnon in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association senior division at the Walker Oval on Saturday. The four-time reigning champion Clubbers posted a massive 7-306 declared on the back of 98 to leader Justin Baker and 53 to classy recruit Adam Contessa. They had no trouble defending the huge score, rolling the visitors for 137 after Mark Williams claimed 3-23.

Altona staved off a challenge from second-last Lalor to win 85-74 and stay in touch with the top sides in Bowls Victoria’s premier division. The A’s claimed three, including a massive 32-15 win for boom recruit Brett Dodd. In division 1, Yarraville-Footscray beat Footscray Park-Rosamond 115-56 in a lopsided local derby.

Picture: Michael Copp

The pair put on 44 for the fifth wicket to see the A’s through to 5-98. Wells, with four fours and a six, brought up his second half-century of the summer. With scores of 62, 59 and 33 (twice), the No.4 batsman is proving to be a real find for the A’s. ‘‘But for him, we’d be in a lot of trouble,’’ Varchione said.

In the zone: Dylan Kight was nigh on unstoppable for Footscray Edgewater.

Liston Seagulls made a ripping start to the new Asia Pacific Tennis League. The Seagulls, one of the favourites of the Victorian conference, downed the Donvale Devils 5-1 at home in Donvale. The Seagulls will host the competition’s second round on Friday night at Commonwealth Reserve in Williamstown with all six clubs in action.

Wells digs deep to get Altona out of the hole ALTONA was caught hopping around in the early overs of the opening day against Brighton on the road at Brighton Beach Oval in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association on Saturday. The A’s struggled against the new ball to be 3-21 before a middle-order fightback was instigated by young English import Josh Wells. ‘‘The ball was jagging around a bit early,’’ A’s captain John Varchione told the Weekly. ‘‘It was a tough period and we were unable to get through it.’’ Wells had the scorers on alert en route to 62. The teenager featured in partnerships with the experienced Lee Elmore (17) and young Chris Peters (5). Peters, in his first top-flight game, occupied the crease for long enough to ensure Wells could do some damage at the other end.

Tennis

SCOREBOARD

BY LANCE JENKINSON

‘‘He’s a very good driver of the ball on both sides of the wicket. ‘‘He looks like a cricketer when he plays . . . just real good, clean cricket shots. He’s only 18 and he’s going to get better. I think he’s going to turn into a really good player.’’ The A’s went in search of trouble and found it once more. They lost 5-10 to be in all sorts of strife at 9-108.

It took youngsters Stefan Sidari and Jake Duff — both of whom have played in A’s under-17 team this season — to put on 40 for the last wicket and give their side an ever-soslight chance of victory. ‘‘Their 40 for the last wicket has given us something to bowl at,’’ Varchione said. ‘‘They batted really well, especially Sidari. It’s almost as if he’s been playing (first XI cricket) for the last couple of years. He’s really coming on nicely.’’ Brighton was 1-21 in reply at stumps. In other matches, Yarraville (8-245) has set Malvern a big target after its leaders Tim McRae (95 not out) and Alex Hewet (77) had a day out at the Malvern City Oval. Williamstown (1-36) requires a further 122 with nine wickets in hand for victory over Roxburgh ParkBroadmeadows at the Williamstown Cricket Ground.

COBURG Districts’ application to leave the Western Region Football League for the Essendon District league was approved on Friday. The move had been mooted since the middle of last season and has now been rubber-stamped by AFL Victoria. The Lions will join EDFL division 2, meaning the competition is now up to eight clubs after East Sunbury’s commitment to field a senior team in the division this season also. The Moreland Council-based club plays out of Cole Reserve in the EDFL’s eastern cluster of teams, near Pascoe Vale, Hadfield and Glenroy. ‘‘It gives it a lot of credibility and sustainability to division 2,’’ EDFL general manager Marc Turri said. ‘‘To have an eight-team competition with no byes provides that variation you need that you don’t necessarily have with seven or six teams. ‘‘Eventually we’ll be able to extend division 1 to nine teams with a view to 10 in the long term. ‘‘It’s really logical to have Coburg Districts competing in what is their local competition.’’ — Teo Pellizzeri

Wolves teeter but recover BY LANCE JENKINSON

New home can’t fence Aces in BY LANCE JENKINSON A WALK-off, grand slam home run on opening night from Elliot Biddle has provided lift-off on a new Australian Baseball League season for the Melbourne Aces. A second from the outfielder’s bat later in the weekend went some way towards dispelling the theory that home runs will be hard to come by at the Aces’ new home at the Melbourne Ballpark in Laverton. Biddle’s clear-the-bases blast gave the Aces a historic 5-1 win over Adelaide Bite in the home opener on Friday night and they went on to win the three-game series 2-1. The Bite returned serve in game two with a 4-0 win on Saturday evening, but the Aces hit back with a 7-2 victory on Sunday afternoon on the back of two home runs from second baseman Brad Harman. Biddle, who packs a lot of power in his slender 71-kilogram body, will never forget opening night of the 2012-13 season. ‘‘You couldn’t ask for a better start to the season,’’ Biddle told the Weekly after his Friday night heroics. ‘‘I got it pretty sweet. I think it’s going out in any ballpark. To finish it off like that is a dream.’’

ABL SCOREBOARD Game 1: Melbourne Aces 5 Adelaide Bite 1 Game 2: Melbourne Aces 0 Adelaide Bite 4 Game 3: Melbourne Aces 7 Adelaide Bite 2 Melbourne Aces win the series 2-1.

The long-awaited return of national league baseball to the west finally came under dark and threatening skies on Friday night. The fans, just over 1100 of them, came despite the heavens opening before and during play. The car park was full and drivers were forced to park on a side road and in a neighbouring paddock. The fans made use of a shuttle bus from Laverton railway station and all was in readiness for a big night. There was a glitch with the sound system, but the Hangar were on hand to sing the national anthem, which served as a warm-up for a vocal crowd on opening night. With the SEN call team of Ed Wyatt and Craig Kernick in position, Aces general manager Windsor Knox putting the CB radio down for a brief moment and the cheerleaders revving up the crowd with Maverick the mascot, only one more thing was needed to usher in the new era of Aces baseball and that was home plate umpire Greg

Howard declaring the season open with a yell of ‘‘play ball’’. The rain-interrupted opening game was a pitcher’s duel between Aces No.1 Adam Bright and Bite ace Dushan Ruzic. Scores were locked at 1-1 heading into the ninth and with the Bite threatening with two runners on base, Aces reliever John Hussey survived to pick up the win. It paved the way for the piece de resistance, a rocket of a shot with bases loaded from Biddle to clear the left field fence and set off the fireworks to light up the night sky. In game two, the rot set in early for the Aces, with starter Hirotaka Koishi taken out of the game after he conceded three runs in three innings in the four-run loss. In game three, the Aces produced their best performance of the weekend, scoring three runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings to win by five. Harman, a one-time major leaguer with the Philadelphia Phillies, smashed home runs in the first and fourth innings, while Biddle repeated his heroics from two days earlier to clear the fence in the fifth. The Aces take to the air for a three-game series with the Perth Heat at Barbagello Ballpark on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

WILLIAMSTOWN Wolves produced a Houdini act to overcome Chelsea Dolphins 14-9 in a Baseball Victoria summer league division 2 nailbiter at Edithvale Road Reserve on Sunday. The Wolves were staring into the abyss with two outs, two strikes and one-run deficit in the ninth, but somehow they escaped. Not only did the Wolves find an equaliser run, they got the go-ahead and proceeded to pile on further misery to open up a five-run lead and snuff out whatever chance the Dolphins had. ‘‘We just got out of jail,’’ Wolves playing president Ryan Camov said. ‘‘We scraped home after being behind from pretty much the second inning. ‘‘It’s easy to play when you’re frontrunners, but it’s always a challenge to come back when you’ve got to work hard from behind, so it was a great test of character for us today.’’ It was a cliffhanger finish with an extraordinary sequence of events taking place for the Wolves to get up. Twice the Wolves were one pitch away from losing. That’s when the never-say-die approach kicked in. ‘‘We continued to push and push,’’ Camov said. ‘‘Some of our guys had good, long at-bats and drew walks to load the bases.’’ The Wolves moved into equal first with the win, joining local rivals Newport Rams on six wins after the Rams lost for the first time. Summer League Division 2 Firsts: Chelsea 9 Williamstown 14, Fitzroy 5 Newport 4, Seconds: Fitzroy 7 Newport 6; Chelsea 0 Williamstown 21 Thirds: Williamstown 19 Chelsea 2; Newport 9 Fitzroy 3 Fourths: Newport 7 Fitzroy 10 Division 3 Firsts: Footscray 7 Ormond Glenhuntly 6 Seconds: Footscray 9 Ormond Glenhuntly 8

Tight win in sprint A MAMMOTH break initiated by Miles Da Costa, Josh Zammit and Ben O’Leary was swallowed up with mere minutes to go in a thrilling seventh round of the Footscray Cycling Club’s summer criterium on Saturday. In a bunched sprint, 37-year-old Hoppers Crossing resident Paul Anders made the most of his position, following Shaun Gatter through and winning narrowly from Dom Dudkiewicz. In B grade, Sanctuary Lakes entrant Kel Boers earned a promotion to A grade with a dominating display of power riding. In C grade, newcomer Nathan Jungbauer was too strong, while Andrew Bonnello was elevated to C grade after winning in D grade.
