OUR COVER: Youth worker Les Twentyman sees a very different side to life on our streets. Story: 10-11 Picture: Scott McNaughton

Moving forward is awesome as very couple of years a word or phrase comes along that gets its grappling hooks into the public lexicon and climbs to the pinnacle of inanity. For example, the use of the word “amazing” to describe things which are patently not is such a pet peeve that it recently topped the 37th official list of words that should be banned. Given that the list of “Words Banished from the Queen’s English for Misuse, Overuse and General Uselessness” is compiled by American academics, it’s probably pretty safe to assume Australians are somewhat behind in our abuse of amazing. Here we seem to be stuck with the very-2007 default of “awesome”. Shepherding a young high-profile professional on a recent photo shoot, everything was apparently breathtakingly, heart-stoppingly, outof-this-world fabulous. The toilets to the left. “Awesome”. The photographer’s just arrived. “Awesome”. We reached a conversational zenith when I offered her a cup of coffee. “That would be really awesome”. True, “awesome” is not as bad as the ’90s fixation with “closure” — a therapy goal initially prescribed for people suffering from profound trauma and violent loss which became the musthave mantra for everything from failed relationships to business deals. And it’s nowhere near as toe-curling as passionate. It seems everyone has a Miss World-kind-ofpassion these days. Given it’s a word which implies pain and suffering, if not a certain hotheadedness and/or sexual desire, it’s slightly alarming to hear people profess a “real passion for account management” or to be “passionate about service delivery”. Personally, I prefer my professionals competent, capable and awe-struck as infrequently as possible. Now, about moving forward . . .

A win for the generations BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK A WEEK after the High Court’s decision to uphold the world’s first plain packaging laws for cigarettes, Australia’s first female AttorneyGeneral Nicola Roxon is back in her Gellibrand electorate opening a Newport primary school’s new learning spaces. Sacred Heart Primary School used $2.25 million of federal government Building the Education Revolution funding to develop a new library learning centre and grade 5 and 6 learning areas. Taking on Big Tobacco in the form of four of the world’s biggest cigarette makers was something Ms Roxon did mainly for children not yet addicted to cigarettes and for those who had lost a loved one to smoking-related cancer. When she was 10, Ms Roxon’s father died from oesophageal cancer. Jack Roxon was a smoker. From December 1, all cigarettes will be sold in olive-green packs without trademarks and with larger health warning graphics. Last week’s legal victory was ‘‘a rare one of those moments where the success is very satisfying,’’ Ms Roxon said in an interview with the Weekly. ‘‘Of course, if it means that some families don’t lose a family member too early then that’s suffering that I would be happy to have helped prevent.’’ But banning tobacco altogether is not something the government is looking at. ‘‘I think if it was a new product we were discovering now but we knew everything about tobacco that we now know, it would be banned,’’ Ms Roxon said. ‘‘But when you live in a free democratic country you’ve got to make change gradually. ‘‘I was heartened when I was health minister that primary schoolchildren wrote to me every day saying why don’t we ban it, and I would always write back and say that might be something your generation should pursue. ‘‘This has been a very big fight to get to this stage, but I think it might be something that future generations will take on and good luck to them.’’

Plain speaking: Nicola Roxon has described the victory over Big Tobacco as ‘‘a rare one of those moments where the success is very satisfying’’. Picture: Cathy Jackson

Ms Roxon said new research showed that of the current smokers, 80 per cent became addicted before age 19. ‘‘I think the main aim is that we try to stop people getting addicted to start with so we’re trying to take away any extra reason that a young person, in particular, might take up smoking. ‘‘We don’t want the packet to be attractive to young girls. We don’t want the macho imagery that might attract young men. ‘‘We don’t want people to think that some of the colours suggest that some types of cigarettes are lighter or may be better for you.’’ The battle is not over yet, with Australia now facing a World Trade Organisation challenge

over its law from Dominican Republic, Honduras and Ukraine. ‘‘It’s clear that this is a very controversial decision in Ukraine, a country we have virtually no trade with,’’ Ms Roxon said. ‘‘The three countries that have so far expressed an interest are small countries with no particular trade relationship with Australia.’’ The Australian Retailers Association expects the plain-packaging move will cost the industry $500 million in lost productivity. Association spokesman Russel Zimmerman said transaction times would blow out because cigarette packets would look almost identical. He said the new laws ‘‘simply make things difficult’’ for retailers. — With Nick Toscano

POLICE, youth workers and educators have vowed to take a united approach to helping troubled young people in the west following a youth violence summit organised last Tuesday by Footscray-based youth worker Les Twentyman. The summit, ‘Keeping kids in the classroom and out of the courtroom’, was organised in response to what Mr Twentyman called “the growing rate of youth violence” gripping Melbourne’s west. Senior police, educators, students and migrant leaders attended the meeting. Detective Superintendent Pat Boyle said gang violence had

reached unprecedented levels, and he urged the community to work together to tackle the issue. “Police can’t do it alone. We need teachers, the government and youth workers to work together on this.” Detective Superintendent Boyle said there were proven links between truancy and youth gang violence. “Teachers need to not only understand but be aware of what a gang presence looks like in the school environment and how to intervene.” Braybrook African community leader Abeselom Nega told the summit hundreds of troubled youths had sought help from youth education group iEmpower in the past year. As the organisation’s chief executive, he said migrants and

refugees were particularly vulnerable. “Our target group is mainly migrants and refugees, many of African background who may be discriminated against or disadvantaged due to poverty and learning difficulties.” Mr Nega said he wanted a strategy in place so youth workers could work in schools and guide students on alternative pathways. He also called on police to take a proactive approach and educate troubled youth about the legal and justice system, rather than inflicting harsh punishment. iEmpower youth worker Marian Ali said many teenagers had already lost hope by the time they were referred to the centre. “It’s devastating to see young people, many with

so much potential, struggle to fit into the community.” Mr Twentyman said youth in the west were dealing with a ‘‘tidal wave of issues’’ and urged the state government, police and senior educators to step in. He called for alternative education centres to be established for troubled youth to keep them engaged through specialised learning. “For many disadvantaged kids, life is like treading water or just waiting to drown. “Just because these kids are disengaged doesn’t mean they have no brains; they just have no opportunity. Education gives you the power to make choices.” Life on the streets: Pages 10-11

BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM

AUSTRALIA’S Race Discrimination Commissioner and Victoria Police are at odds over comments linking African youth crime rates and the Cronulla riots. Police statistics released on Monday show Somalia and Sudan-born Victorians are five times more likely to commit offences than the broader population of Victoria. Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Stephen Fontana said police were most worried about assaults and street robberies. “We are concerned about the level of offending by youth of African descent and we’re particularly concerned about the level of violence on these occasions and also the age of the individuals involved — a vast majority are under 21.” Police are working with community groups, local councils and government agencies on programs to help break the cycle of offending. Assistant Commissioner Fontana said there had nevertheless been a noticeable rise in incidents over the past 12 months in areas such as Footscray, Sunshine and Melton. He said Cronulla-style riots were a worst case scenario “many years down the track”. “We’re saying if you don’t break the cycle now and it continues on, we’re going to have a larger population and there’s always that potential to occur.” But Race Discrimination Commissioner Helen Szoke told the Weekly this link overlooked the reality of the Cronulla riots. “The Cronulla riots were fuelled by racists; not by the disadvantaged but by racists. If you look at what happened in the UK with the London riots, that was also different, there was a range of complexities.” Ms Szoke warned race-based statistics could mislead. “When particular crimes become associated with certain groups, police may more heavily target that group, inflating the rate of arrests.” Assistant Commissioner Fontana said he was aware police risked further stigmatising Melbourne’s African community, but he believed there was a public safety issue and a broader issue about these communities genuinely needing help. — Benjamin Millar

Drawn to the surf, on flying feet

Fines over Pampas incident Goodman Fielder Consumer Foods has been fined $90,000 over an incident at its ‘Pampas’ factory in West Footscray in which a worker’s arm was crushed in a machine. At the Sunshine Magistrates’ Court on Monday, the company pleaded guilty to failing to provide a safe plant and proper training after the September 2009 which left the worker with permanent arm injuries. Labour hire company Skilled Group Ltd was convicted and fined $50,000 in November over the same incident. The worker was cleaning a dough extruder when it started up, and his arm was trapped in the machine. WorkSafe’s general manager for health and safety operations, Lisa Sturzenegger, said the conviction and fine could have easily been avoided. “Properly guarding machines is a fundamental safety requirement,” she said.

BY BENJAMIN MILLAR A VICTORIA University student has become the first Australian in two decades to win back-to-back Sydney City2Surf races. Runner Liam Adams jumped to the front of the field of about 85,000 last weekend, winning in 41 minutes 31 seconds. The 14-kilometre-long City2Surf is one of the world’s most popular races. Competitors set out from Hyde Park in the city and made their way via ‘Heartbreak Hill’ to Bondi Beach. Despite the wet and blustery conditions, Adams, 25, crossed the Bondi Beach finish line just 20 seconds short of his 2011 winning time. It was a great day for his club Athletics Essendon, with fellow representative Mitch Brown taking out third place in 42 minutes 28 seconds — less than a minute behind Adams. Adams, a five-time Australian cross-country champion, began the race as favourite. He made it two wins from two starts to become the first runner to win back-to-back City2Surf races since Dickson Marwa in 2006-07 and the first Australian to achieve the feat since recordholder Steve Moneghetti in the early 1990s. “I was confident in my ability to finish, but I knew if it was a slow tactical race I wouldn’t be

Bad rap for doorknockers Grocon, union in court BY BENJAMIN MILLAR A FOOTSCRAY service that has long campaigned against dodgy doorknockers has welcomed a crackdown on the industry by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). Footscray Community Legal Centre (FCLC) manager Denis Nelthorpe said the ACCC’s report, Research into the door to door sales industry in Australia, should sound a warning to energy and other retailers using doorknockers that the practice will be banned unless they stop preying on vulnerable people. More than one-million of the 1.3 million sales made via doorknocking in Australia last year were for energy services. The report criticised aggressive and misleading tactics preying on vulnerable ‘easy targets’ or hooking consumers through tricks such as pretending to have lost their dog or to be from the government. ACCC chairman Rod Sims said

Off-limits: Denis Nelthorpe with a sign warning dodgy doorknockers. Picture: Scott McNaughton

that, on average, every household in Australia was doorknocked eight times a year, but the rates were higher in areas with big migrant populations and low levels of English. “The ACCC has already started a number of enforcement actions, is investigating several more and will not hesitate to take court action against companies or their sales agents who

dupe consumers or don’t abide by the rules.” The FCLC has worked with the ACCC on customer complaints and offered targeted education to vulnerable communities in areas such as Braybrook and Maidstone. Mr Nelthorpe said the problem had got so bad in some areas people refused to open their doors. He has sympathy for under-trained sales agents relying on commissions for their income but wants steps taken to protect people being tricked into signing contracts. “The doorknockers themselves are incredibly vulnerable as well. ‘‘The responsibility for what is happening lies fairly and squarely with the retailers.” The ACCC has produced a Knock! Knock! Who’s There? guide, which gives information about people’s rights. It also has ‘Do Not Knock’ stickers available for people to put on their front door or front gate. Details: accc.gov.au/doortodoor

over picket line protest AUSTRALIA’S largest private construction company is accusing the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union (CFMEU) of threatening and intimidating behaviour at a $350 million development site in Footscray. Work on Grocon’s McNab Avenue revitalisation project halted on Friday when CFMEU members set up a picket line at the site. A writ lodged with the Supreme Court late on Monday contended the union stopped the company from accessing the site and threatened any other companies that tried to cross the line. The McNab Avenue project is being built in partnership with the Victorian government and the site, when completed in 2014, will house the State Trustees and City West Water. Grocon won an interim Supreme Court injunction against the picket line on Friday, but the ban expired at 4.15pm yesterday.

Appearing before the Chief Justice yesterday, Grocon’s lawyers argued the company will continue to suffer loss or damages unless the CFMEU is permanently banned from any further picketing within 100 metres of the site. Grocon spokesman Michael Zorbas said the best outcome would be for the CFMEU and members involved in Friday’s picket to respect the recent enterprise bargaining agreement. “We hope the CFMEU chooses to stop disrupting this worthwhile government project that will employ 350 people over the first two years of construction.” The CFMEU and Grocon have been at loggerheads since early this year after the company moved to push through the first non-union-endorsed enterprise bargaining agreement in a decade. The CFMEU did not respond to requests for comment. — Benjamin Millar

The Maribyrnong Early Years Postcards put information at parents’ fingertips, highlighting services and programs in the immediate area. Featuring pictures by children, the postcards will be shared with families of children aged up to five who are registered with Maribyrnong Maternal and Child Health Services.

Mayor John Cumming says the postcards feature contact details, key dates and information on toy libraries, playgroups, library activities, education and care. The postcards will be launched at 10.30am next Tuesday in the Maribyrnong Town Hall reception room. For bookings or further information, contact Grace Nicol, 9688 0200 or email infoearlyyears@maribyrnong.vic.go.au

STORMS inflicted $1.1 billion in loss and damage in Victoria last year, says the Insurance Council of Australia. The damage bill is more than $2.1 billion since March 2010, including the $712 million damage caused by the hailstorm that hammered Melbourne’s west on Christmas Day. The State Emergency Services says much of the damage is preventable and is using Stormsafe Week, which runs until August 26, to warn people to ‘‘prepare now or pay later’’. Footscray SES spokeswoman Marion Petersen said emergency situations could happen anywhere and at any time. “It’s important to have a plan and know what to do in an emergency. Experience shows that those who plan and prepare can reduce the impact of the emergency and recover quicker afterwards.” Recommended preparation includes keeping gutters and downpipes clean, securing loose items around the

LIFE ON THE STREETS

W

HEN discussing his job and his life, two things very much entwined, it’s hard to get a short answer from social worker and community activist Les Twentyman. You get the impression he’s seen too much to keep things brief. To explain the problems and disadvantages in Melbourne’s west, Twentyman tends not to spout a quick statistic like a politician might. Instead he’ll tell you a story. There’s the one about catching a glimpse of cigarette burns and bruises on a pupil’s arms when he started work as a primary teacher. He says this, and the pupil’s reluctance to talk about how it happened, is what drove him out of the classroom and into youth work. Volunteering for the Sunshine Lions Club one Christmas morning in the early ’80s, delivering toys to needy families is another story.

[ 10 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

Given a list of houses to deliver presents to in Braybrook, his home suburb, Twentyman says he entered a house just around the corner from his own and found three children sharing the same filthy bed. There were no parents to be seen, no food anywhere and just a couple of bottles of beer in the fridge. ‘‘That was when I thought, shit, I’ve been here all my life, been walking past this house, but had no idea what was beyond those walls.’’ Since 1984 when he took a job as an outreach worker with Sunshine City Council, Twentyman has been the face of western-suburbs social work. With an approach to social work that has always seen Twentyman more at home working with kids on the street rather than talking about it with other social workers over coffee, he has a detailed knowledge of disadvantage in the west. As an activist Twentyman’s dual focus has always been working to end youth

You’ve got kids taking weapons to primary schools. I don’t think people have any idea what it’s like out here.

violence in the west and giving school-age kids greater access to youth workers. This has seem him in a never-ending campaign with local, state and federal governments seeking funding for education, art and sports programs - anything to keep youths engaged and off the street. Twentyman admits the challenges now are more complex than when he started, but believes investing in schools and targeting children at primary age has always been central to finding answers. After Jeff Kennett’s Liberal state government amalgamated councils and put community services out to tender, Twentyman lost his position with the council’s youth services team and started with Open Family, where he worked closely with Father Bob Maguire to help run a youth refuge house. Drawn back to the west in 2009, Twentyman left and started his own organisation, the 20th Man Fund, which now has two office spaces and 12 staff based in Footscray, but with reach across the west and into Flemington. More than 150 homeless people use the 20th Man office as their postal address. His small but dedicated staff work with numerous agencies to co-ordinate dozens of community building programs for youths, have

established a basketball league for refugees, run a young leaders’ program and surf trips for kids who have never seen a beach, have a back-to-school program for expelled students, and are in preliminary discussions with Maribyrnong Council about turning abandoned factories into alternative school sites. The 20th Man office in Maddern Square, Footscray, also provides an office space for a GP that sees more than 1200 heroin dependent patients each month. Twentyman’s profile and willingness to lobby governments for action in the west has led him to run as an independent candidate for the Legislative Council in 1992 and 1996, and in 2008 he ran in the Kororoit byelection, finishing second to Labor after the distribution of preferences. While unlikely ever to win against Labor in its heartland, Twentyman says taking part was a way of putting western suburbs issues into the political spotlight. As recently as last month, Twentyman took federal Homelessness Minister Brendan O’Connor on a tour of the inner west to highlight the growing issue of homelessness. In April he convinced Premier Ted Baillieu to take the tour. ‘‘I think the area gets forgotten, so I have to get these people out here to see it for themselves.’’

Twentyman believes gang violence is at an alltime high and split along ethnic lines. To demonstrate his point he takes me to a laneway in Braybrook behind a shopping strip where his family once had a fruit shop. Decorated with the tags and slogans of a local gang, the lane is also the setting for another story. This one is about an Islander gang from Sunshine and a baseball bat attack. ‘‘Eighty per cent of the things that go on with violence go unreported. I hear of things all the time but never see anything about it in the paper. ‘‘There’s a lot of racism too. It used to be everyone being down on the Asians. Now it’s more the Africans — it’s all based on ignorance. ‘‘You’ve got teachers at local schools who feel as though they’ve been parachuted into a war zone. You’ve got kids taking weapons to primary schools. I don’t think people have any idea what it’s like out here. ‘‘That is why we need youth workers at every primary school. You’ve got to get in and make a difference before they are too far the other way and drop out of school.’’ Twentyman says there are Arab and Aussie gangs, Asian gangs in St Albans, Africans in Footscray, Islanders in Sunshine and gangs divided into postcodes.

Even considering his detailed understanding of the area’s problems, underlying all of Twentyman’s work is an affection for the west. ‘‘Despite it all I love the area. Fellow Braybrook boy Doug Hawkins and I go around Australia talking to people all the time and we are very proud that we come from Braybrook. ‘‘I probably wouldn’t have the image I do if I was a youth worker from Brighton. ‘‘The thing is it doesn’t have to be this bad — if we could just get some resources. We want to function like the rest of bloody Melbourne. ‘‘It’s only going to happen when we lobby for services and jobs and that sort of stuff. ‘‘I want the 20th Man Fund to have a youth worker in every Victorian school, to set up some community schools and keep kids in classrooms and out of courtrooms. So I’ll keep going on to whoever is in government to achieve that. ‘‘Creating jobs is also crucial. That’s a major difference to the problems in my day — violence used to settle down after the weekend because on Monday everyone would go back to work. ‘‘Today 56.7 per cent of kids aged 15-19 are unemployed.’’

Don’t mess with Orlando, now one of us BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK PRO-WRESTLING’S first openly bisexual wrestler has opened the first training school run by a pro in Australia — right here in Melbourne’s west. Hailing from Florida, WWE Smackdown and former Impact Wrestling superstar Orlando Jordan on Monday launched his WildKat ProWrestling Training Centre at Brooklyn. The one-time US champion in World Wrestling Entertainment made one unforgettable wrestling debut wearing little more than yellow ‘‘Do not cross’’ caution tape, descending from the ceiling and writhing in the ring to Dale Oliver’s soundtrack of Simply the Greatest. With lyrics: ‘‘The women love me and the guys want to get with me.’’ But behind Jordan’s 1.93-metre frame of intimidating muscle lies a man who has struggled to get to the top. Jordan hopes his battle against prejudice will carve an easier path for others. He says it’s a shame his preferences are such a big deal. ‘‘It sure as hell doesn’t dictate my abilities in and outside the ring. ‘‘As a matter of fact, it’s just the opposite. Anybody who’s ever seen me perform in the ring,

Standing strong: Orlando Jordan says there’s no question about his ability in the ring. when it comes to my ability, that’s not in question. ‘‘In life, in general, I think it’s important that we be who we are. ‘‘One of the reasons I’ve always been very open

about my preference is because I believe that people should be who they are. ‘‘I’ve met younger girls and younger guys who may have questioned who they are and I think that me being open helps that, especially as some-

one who’s in the public eye. I understand what they go through and they can relate to someone like me in that sense because I understand a lot of the prejudice they may come through and some of the hard things they may deal with.’’ Jordan, who also runs pro-wrestling centres in the US, will be a hands-on trainer at Brooklyn. He says the local wrestling industry ‘‘isn’t where it should be’’ and he hopes to elevate it. ‘‘I love it out here in Australia, so I thought it would be a good thing to bring what I know to the industry in Australia and see what I could do to help it grow and bring a part that I’m used to at the level that I’m used to being at. ‘‘And of course this happens over time. ‘‘This will be the first Australian school with someone who has actually had a career in professional wrestling. ‘‘I’ve heard a lot of rumours that people have said this is something that I’m not going to be around for but, trust me, I’m gonna be here and I’m going to be very active in everything I do, in the ring and outside the ring to help build the industry here in Australia. ‘‘. . . It was pretty gruelling in the industry coming up, but that’s been my whole life anyway. ‘‘Nothing’s ever come easy for me.’’

ACTORIES and open fields, burning rubbish tips and the winding river . . . the Footscray of Michael Leunig’s childhood has come a long way in some respects, but it’s always been a suburb of contrasts. There’s an air of nostalgic whimsy in the cartoonist’s voice as he describes his childhood by the banks of the Maribyrnong. It’s the same quality that pervades his instantly recognisable cartoons. “It was a working-class area with a real consciousness of itself as that,” he says of the 1950s Footscray. “There were a lot of factories, a lot of people working in them and a lot of really bad smells from the tanneries.” It was a very down-to-earth community as well, he adds, and it was already undergoing a post-war transition from an Anglo-Saxon and AngloCeltic culture to one reflecting a much broader mix brought about by migration. Leunig says the area has always kept

a strong community spirit. He felt it during his schooling at Maribyrnong High and it carried through to his first job at the meatworks. He credits this sense of community, a supportive family and “a lot of freedom as a child” as informing both his art and world view. “Life was very basic. ‘‘There was a chance to be contemplative as a young boy. I would go to the Footscray library and borrow books. I just wanted to be expressive; somehow I got it in my blood.” Storytelling around the kitchen table, his father’s role in the union and unhappiness about the war in Vietnam all shaped Leunig’s trajectory as a political and philosophical cartoonist. “The ’60s was a time of upheaval. My father was very active in the Meatworkers Union and there was certainly that influence there in my family; lots of ideas. ‘‘It was an intellectually lively time and I got a political consciousness during the Vietnam War.” Leunig took to cartooning like a

Reflections: Self-portrait drawn by Michael Leunig for the Weekly. duck to water, a “self-taught art that doesn’t come through the proper channels”. He credits this with allowing him to develop his own style and voice. He’s now known to many via his cartoons for The Age newspaper and through cartoon-books such as The Adventures of Vasco Pyjama and the Curly Flats series. Leunig was declared an ‘Australian Living Treasure’ by the National Trust

of Australia in 1999, and he feels blessed to have been able to develop his cartooning career without losing sight of what drew him to the form. “I went into it as a political cartoonist, but I was never really interested in the main players. ‘‘I have always been more fascinated in the ordinary people. It has been very personal work, a personal matter, things like human loneliness, love and death, depression and joy.” He considers his realm to be “the space between dark and extreme light” and believes it’s the shared emotional touchstones of love and sadness, loneliness and joy that connects with his audience. Leunig will reflect upon his early life in Maribyrnong and Footscray in ‘Curly Pyjamas and other such stuff: an evening with Michael Leunig’ — a free talk at Footscray library for the Maribyrnong Literary Festival, from 7pm on Friday, September 7.

yndham newborns requiring a little extra care, like Stella and Ellen Hargreaves, are receiving plenty of it at a new birthing unit at Werribee Mercy Hospital. Caring for more than 2000 newborns each year, the hospital opened the unit with the financial assistance of developer Asset 1 who is donating a portion of every land sale from The Heartlands estate to supporting youngsters. Tarneit residents Kylie and Andrew Hargreaves have been impressed with the care for their twins. ‘‘Ellen weighed just 800 grams when she was born. She has been cared for by amazing nurses in the unit. I can’t explain how nice it is to be close to the hospital and know your babies are being well looked after,’’ Kylie said. ‘‘We’ve been living in Tarneit for the past three years and are impressed with the developments coming up in the area, including new roadways, infrastructure and schools.’’

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.

fter spending time in Japan in the early 80s as a Rotary exchange student, Chris Poole returned to Australia fluent in Japanese. ‘‘I never studied Japanese at school or in any other formal setting,’’ the South Kingsville resident says. ‘‘Translation started as a hobby then gradually became a career. I started my own [translation] business in 1992.’’ He says people often think speaking another language is sufficient to become a translator, but it took him several years after achieving fluency in Japanese to learn how to translate. ‘‘Even after learning Japanese I never thought I’d do this for a living. I still thank my mum for inspiring me to learn the language.’’ Mr Poole’s business specialises in translation services, written and spo-

Happy little mudlarks reap Burbank bounty BY LANCE JENKINSON WILLIAMSTOWN are the mudlark masters of the Victorian Football League. While being covered in mud head to toe is not a pretty sight, the Seagulls aren’t complaining, rather using it to their advantage and making the most of the boggy conditions at Burbank Oval. They are playing the ground and its conditions to perfection with Saturday’s 66-point win over Sandringham a case in point as they made it five wins in a row at the ground. ‘‘Certainly playing in those conditions the past few weeks was a bit of an edge for us,’’ Seagulls football manager Chris Dixon told the Weekly. ‘‘Our boys have got used to the slog, which is probably a bit of a concern coming into games that we’ll be playing on grounds with pretty good decks. But it’s certainly given us an advantage on the day and we play it pretty well.’’ The contested ball was key with over 100 stoppages recorded for the game. Throw into the mix a six-goal breeze towards one end and the team with the better defensive mechanisms running into it was always going to emerge the victor. ‘‘It was a strategic game, using the wind to our advantage and setting up pretty strong defensively going into it,’’ Dixon said. ‘‘I thought we defended pretty well going into the breeze.’’ The Seagulls had the wind in the

The youngster was set the task of negating Zebras speedster Brett Peake and accomplished that with a handy bonus of six goals of his own. ‘‘It was a funny one,’’ Dixon said. ‘‘We just gave him the job of running with Brett Peake all day and as it happened, Peake started on half-back, which meant he started as a forward. ‘‘When you’re running hot, you’re running hot and for him to kick six and, more importantly, nullify Peake’s influence on the game, it was a win for us.’’ Nick Georgiadis didn’t let his opportunity slip either. Playing in just his second game, he showed an appetite for the contest to

be named among the best. ‘‘He’s one that we would’ve liked to have got more senior football into, but he’s had a couple of niggling hamstring injuries throughout the year,’’ Dixon said. ‘‘He’s finally got his chance in the last couple of games and he’s just a real tough, tenacious footballer and everything he does, he does at 100 per cent pace.’’ Jarrod Grant, Justin Sherman and James Wall also had strong games. The Seagulls kept their slim double chance hopes alive with the win. They will have to beat Geelong in the final home-and-away game on the road at Simonds Stadium on Saturday and hope western suburbs neighbours Werribee Tigers are beaten by Collingwood to sneak into the top four. At the very least, the Seagulls can’t drop below sixth place on the ladder, meaning they have earned the right to a home final. That, however, could be subject to a Football Victoria ground inspection. ‘‘We’ve sewn up a home final, but whether it’s played at Williamstown is a different question,’’ Dixon said. ‘‘If that opportunity came and the ground came up all right, we’d love the chance to play at Williamstown.’’

Look out, the Blues are back in the town WILLIAMSTOWN might have found a glimmer of light at the end of a long and dark tunnel. The Blues shook off a run of defeats and ties with an upset 2-0 win over North Sunshine Eagles in the Football Federation Victoria men’s state league 3 north-west at Grey Reserve on Saturday. The Blues claimed their first win since June 16 to finally move off the bottom rung of the ladder. Player-coach Mark Burton is hoping it will provide the impetus to find a way out of the relegation zone. ‘‘It’s been a long time coming,’’ he told The Weekly. ‘‘We’re hoping it’s a circuit breaker for us leading into five important games. ‘‘We can still avoid relegation.’’ It has been a gloomy winter for the aptly named Blues. [ 60 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

Since their 3-1 victory over Hume United in the middle of June, they went seven games for two draws and five losses. They held an emergency meeting leading into the Eagles game and it seemed to have worked. ‘‘We had a real heart to heart, sat down and talked about what we could do better,’’ Burton said. ‘‘It had to be a collective effort. We all took ownership of what we could do.’’ All the talking in the world was no substitute for an ice-breaking early goal. The Blues got that through striker Andrew Currie in the 25th minute. Currie was on the receiving end of a perfectly weighted Tony Grozanovski cross to the far post, where he headed it into the back of the net. ‘‘An early goal grows your confidence,’’ Burton said.

August 22, 2012

‘‘We had a few chances in the first half and could’ve been two or three up at half-time.’’ The Blues did not want the half-time break to come, having bullied the first 45 minutes. The message from Burton to his players was to continue in the same fashion and not to suffer ‘‘concentration lapses’’. Goalkeeper Adrian Gvozdic was important in the organisation of the defence and had all the answers when the Eagles asked questions. ‘‘He had a great game at the back,’’ Burton said. ‘‘He gives the boys a lot of confidence, not only with his ball handling and shot stopping but with his organising of the defence.’’ The Blues would eventually get the insurance goal they wanted with 15 minutes left in the game.

Jets rev engines ahead of Cannons clash BY LANCE JENKINSON THE Western Jets are going down swinging in the TAC Cup. They are one of the form teams since the start of June with six wins from their past nine outings after a horror start. They left another positive footprint on Saturday with a 77-point dismantling of Bendigo Pioneers at a wet and wild Epsom Huntly Reserve. Finals are beyond the Jets, but coach Steven Kretiuk says his side has plenty to play for when they meet arch-rivals Calder Cannons in the last home-and-away game at Highgate Recreation Reserve on Saturday morning. ‘‘They embarrassed us last time we played,’’ he told the Weekly, pointing to a 112-point defeat in round four. ‘‘It’s about our pride and putting a really good performance out there. ‘‘We want our top-age

players having their last impact at TAC Cup level putting something forward to the recruiters and our bottom-age players seeing where they’re at in terms of playing against arguably one of the best teams in the competition.’’ The Jets have been superb defensively in backto-back wins over the past fortnight. They restricted the Pioneers to just three goals in a miserly display. ‘‘When they had the wind, we really stepped up the defensive aspects of our game and made it hard for them to score,’’ Kretiuk said. ‘‘It was obviously the telling factor in the game.’’ Sam Critchley was solid as a rock for the Jets down back. The key defender was not outpointed in a single contest and used the ball well on the rebound. The Jets had a dominant forward line, led by six-goal star Lachie Hunter.

father-son prospect for the Western Bulldogs, capped a fine week after receiving an invitation to October’s NAB AFL draft combine. Hunter, who usually plays as a hard-running midfielder, was confined to the attacking 50 due to a bout of osteitis pubis and appeared at ease in the role close to goal. ‘‘He hasn’t trained for a while so we had to play him as a small forward,’’ Kretiuk said. ‘‘He made good position, read the ball well in

Roosters sitting pretty despite match drama ALTONA Roosters had ample time to secure their Victorian Rugby League first grade finals spot, despite the referee calling a permanent halt to play after 50 minutes of the last-round encounter with Waverley Oakleigh Panthers on Saturday. The game was halted so an ambulance crew could attend to an injured Panthers player at the Fregon Reserve encounter. The Roosters went into half-time sporting a healthy 32-6 lead, but there was to be no further addition to the score after match officials were forced to call the game off so paramedics could attend to the player down. The margin of the result did not have an impact on finals placings with the fifth-placed Craigieburn Phoenix — the only team that could have disrupted the top four — copping a hammering from lowly Doveton Steelers. ‘‘One of their boys got seriously injured and we had to wait a while for the ambulance to come,’’ Roosters player-coach Jason Warr told The Weekly. ‘‘We made a good start to the game and carried it into the second half until the injury occurred.’’ Interestingly, the Roosters face a rematch with the Panthers in a cutthroat semi-final this Saturday at Loft Reserve. The Roosters stole third spot in the win, but a home final was already assured with the Roosters holding hosting rights for week one of all finals. Warr says his side is not getting carried away with the ease of its victory.

‘‘We’ll have a heap of confidence going into the finals, but we can’t rely on what we did last weekend because they rested three or four players,’’ he said. ‘‘Playing at home is going to be good for the club as we’ve got all three teams — the senior, reserves and women’s tag — playing. We should get a good crowd down there.’’ Ben James had a scintillating game for the Roosters. The forward snapped at the line with ball in hand and muscled up well in defence. But James was desperate to score a try in the last regular-season game to avoid having to perform a ‘‘nudie run’’ for going try-less this season. ‘‘He ran 55 metres with the ball and got caught a metre short of the line,’’ Warr said. ‘‘We spoke about it after the game and it was decided the guys without a try after the home-and-away season will have to do a nudie run.’’ Young winger Saia Vaka will definitely keep his clothes on after scoring two tries. The 18-year-old’s speed and elusiveness was too much to handle for the Panthers’ defence. Sebastian Lagaaia was in a menacing mood with a number of pack-busting runs. Lagaaia is a fan favourite for his lively try celebrations. ‘‘When he scores a try, he certainly lets everyone know about it,’’ Warr said with a chuckle. ‘‘He always puts in a good celebration.’’ — Lance Jenkinson VRL scoreboard First grade: Waverley-Oakleigh Panthers 6 lt Altona Roosters 32

the wind and judged the flight of the footy much better than most other players in the game.’’ With three goals, Spencer White was the other dominant forward for the Jets. Kretiuk says a modified training plan is paying dividends for a player he dubbed ‘‘the most dynamic tall forward in the competition’’. ‘‘We just think in the first half of the year he didn’t take the steps we expected him to,’’ he said. ‘‘We formulated a program he had to complete every Tuesday before he could join in with the group and he’s done that week in, week out. It’s certainly improved his footy. ‘‘It was all about the way he reads the footy, the second and third efforts and just playing the basics of the game. ‘‘He was outstanding today, playing his role in the side and not trying to be someone he’s not.’’ The first bounce of the Jets’ stoush with the Cannons is at 11am.

Bulldogs’ dreams fade and die FOOTSCRAY will play no part in the Hockey Victoria women’s state league 1 finals with a 2-0 loss to Essendon in the do-or-die round at McIvor Reserve on Saturday. The newly-promoted Bulldogs have been a revelation this season and were on the verge of a shock finals appearance at their first crack in the big league. Their dreams evaporated on the sticks of Asling Utri and Bess Keaney, who scored the goals that sent fourthplaced Bombers to the finals instead. Bulldogs administrator Nicole Virtuoso told the Weekly it was a bittersweet feeling for her club. ‘‘It was a little bit disappointing because we were still in finals contention,’’ she said. ‘‘But it was our first year in the competition and our girls have done extremely well.’’ The Bulldogs are undoubtedly in the top flight for the long haul. They have one of the finest young coaches in

Luke Michael at the helm and a youth-driven squad. ‘‘We’ve got a very young squad,’’ Virtuoso said. ‘‘Most of the players are 23 or under and there’s a lot of junior state representatives in the team.’’ Defender Megan Berriman and striker Sam Ellis will represent the VIS Vipers in the Australian Hockey League in October. Young goalkeeper Panny Mather is also a part of the Victorian Institute of Sport. The Bulldogs’ last game will be on the road at MCC on Saturday.

Sharpshooter points way home with boot BY LANCE JENKINSON FOOTSCRAY sharpshooter Martin Naufahu has delivered a timely reminder on the eve of the Victorian Rugby Union Premier 1 Dewer Shield finals — don’t underestimate the value of his super boot. Naufahu found his range in the Bulldogs’ dour 14-5 win over Box Hill at Henry Turner Reserve on Saturday with the decisive three penalty goals in the one-try-apiece arm wrestle. Bulldogs coach Junior Naufahu told The Weekly that his cousin’s form in front of goal in his first season at the club had been pivotal in his side reaching the finals.

‘‘We depend on him to get those important extra points,’’ he said. ‘‘It relieves the boys of a lot of stress when he’s kicking well. He also played a brilliant territorial game and was great in defence with a few big hits.’’ The Bulldogs were clearly determined to finish the home-and-away rounds on the positive note, despite already having a finals berth under lock and key. They had their backs against the wall with some first-team regulars unavailable for selection through injury and work commitments, but they managed to eek out a win through sheer endeavour over 80 minutes.

‘‘I was really proud of the boys,’’ Naufahu said. ‘‘We knew Box Hill were going to come out firing. They had to get the win and a bonus point to reach the finals. ‘‘We got stuck into it, never gave up and held them off.’’ The Bulldogs held an 11-0 advantage at halftime. Their one and only try of the game came through Lui Seualuga. ‘‘We caught them napping and had a stack of numbers out wide,’’ Naufahu said. Box Hill hit back with an unconverted try, but it would be their only scoreboard action. Tuipine Apineru showed why he is one of the

crowd favourites for Bulldog fans with several barnstorming runs. ‘‘He just doesn’t stop,’’ Naufahu said. ‘‘Every time he gets the ball we expect him to knock players off him and make a few yards.’’ Siosiua Ngauamo had an instant impact with his energy and speed off the bench. He was effective in defence, too, with some bone-jarring tackles that disrupted Box Hill’s attack. The Bulldogs will host their cutthroat week one final with Southern Districts at Henry Turner Reserve on Saturday at 3pm. VRU scoreboard Dewer Shield: Footscray 14 d Box Hill 5

Gators regrouping ALTONA Gators coach Randy Shanklin is not too despondent that his side will carry the weight of a onegame deficit into the best-of-three Victorian Basketball League Big V women’s youth league 2 grand final series with Hawthorn Magic as it continues this weekend. The Gators were the pre-series favourites, having qualified for the grand final on the back of a 13-game winning streak, but they lost the opening game 56-49 on the road at the Boroondara Sports Complex on Saturday night. ‘‘We kind of expected it,’’ Shanklin told The Weekly. ‘‘We never thought it was going to be easy; they’d only lost one game at home all year.’’ The Gators started as a favourite should. They burst to a confident 18-9 lead after one period and were going to take some stopping. This Magic outfit is by no means second rate and they countered swiftly with near-faultless second and third quarters to lead by five. The Gators made a late run, but lacked composure in the dying minutes. ‘‘I thought we played well as a group,’’ Shanklin said. ‘‘They played hard and it’s all I can ask for at this point. ‘There wasn’t much in it and it’s a matter of making the plays at the right time. ‘‘Hawthorn were a bit more composed in the last two or three minutes.’’ Jenna Conroy had a monster 14 minutes for the Gators, finishing with 13 points and six rebounds. Co-captain Ashleigh Richardson was powerful under the basket, reeling in 15 rebounds to go with seven points. Amy Lawrence, one of the smaller players in the team, stood up to the physical rigors of finals basketball. The Gators went in with the knowledge of how tough the Magic would be on their home court. They will now carry a vital stat of their own into games two and three, if required, at the Altona Sports Centre this weekend. ‘‘The good thing is we haven’t lost two games in a row all year,’’ Shanklin said. ‘‘And nothing changes with the loss; we’ve always had to win two games to win the series.’’ — Lance Jenkinson

Fearons regain form as finals loom WILLIAMSTOWN reasserted its dominance of the Lacrosse Victoria men’s state league with a 26-9 drubbing of MCC at Fearon Reserve on Saturday. The Fearons had been down on form with a pair of losses in the past month after starting the season with 12 straight wins. They were eager to send a message with finals just two weeks away and took out frustrations on the hapless MCC with a quick kill. The Fearons were flawless in the first quarter with 10 unanswered goals, four from the stick of Darren Nicholas. They had put the game out of reach of MCC at half-time with a 17-1 lead. To their credit, MCC never waved the white flag, managing to steal a quarter from the ladder-leading Fearons. There were plenty of goals to go around for the Fearons with Daniel Jennings (7), Nicholas (5), Kyle Morland, Aaron Lawman

(4 each) and Matthew Price (2) all getting in on the act with multiples. The Fearons will host Camberwell in the last round before the finals on Saturday. Footscray is finals-bound after a 20-5 mauling of Caulfield on their travels to Caulfield Park. The Scray had a strong start to open up a four-goal gap at the first break and never looked back. Luke Moore found the back of the net in each quarter to finish with five goals for the

Scray, while Kane Mollison and James Lawerson scored four apiece. Altona was competitive with Eltham for large periods before losing 14-6 at Lower Eltham Park. Lachlan McKinnon had a big game for the A’s with two goals and two assists. Chayden Allen also fired in a double. A’s coach and life member Ric Benedierks will take charge of his final game on Saturday at home to Camberwell. It brings down the curtain on his decorated 40-year involvement in the sport as player and coach, which included coaching the Australian team. Meanwhile, Footscray has set up a grand final with powerhouse Newport in the women’s state league after crushing Williamstown 12-2 in the preliminary at Surrey Park on Saturday. Sarah Mollison, with three goals and five assists, and Abbie Burgess, four goals, were the Scray’s most dynamic. — Lance Jenkinson

Out of relegation zone for now, CYs aim to stay that way WILLIAMSTOWN CYMS is breathing a sigh of relief after moving out of the Victorian Amateur Football Association division 1 relegation zone for the first time since round nine. CYs will go into the final round controlling their own destiny after jumping out of the bottom two with a 63-point hammering of third-last Glen Eira at Fearon Reserve on Saturday. They will retain their place in the division if either they beat Ormond on the road at E E Gunn Reserve on Saturday, or Glen Eira loses to ladderleader North Old Boys/St Patrick’s in its last round. ‘‘We’re confident we can go out and beat Ormond,’’ CYs coach Ian Rick-

man said. ‘‘There is a lot of confidence in the group now.’’ For CYs, the last home game of the season was a do or die effort. If they had lost, their papers would have been stamped with relegation in big red letters. Rickman called on a special effort from his players and he found 22 combatants willing to do whatever it took to secure a win. ‘‘The boys came to play from the start,’’ he said. ‘‘It was a fantastic all round effort. I don’t think Glen Eir
