A tip for better taxi service

COVER: Tintern School students Samantha, Sophie, Jen and Olympia — with Australian Youth Climate Coalition representative Ryan Shaw — are taking action to save the environment. Story on page 11. Picture: Lucy Di Paolo

BY CLAIRE THWAITES THE hurdles that disabled people face in getting a taxi in Maroondah could soon be a thing of the past if proposed changes to the booking system get through. The changes to bookings involve the creation of a statewide central system that can be used by people with disabilities. A draft report released earlier this year into the state of Melbourne’s taxi industry found a dearth of wheelchair-friendly taxi services. The report by Professor Allan Fels found that people requiring such taxis had to sometimes wait longer than three hours and drivers were discourteous and took circuitous routes when a passenger couldn’t object. The report recommended creating one booking service, which could be used by disabled people. Heathmont resident Woody Marriott is right behind the idea. Mr Marriott, the co-founder of Disability Action Group - Eastern Region, said the main issues in Maroondah he saw were drivers who were indifferent and reluctant. ‘‘There are not that many issues, really. It’s delays in coming, mainly. Also not having space in the boot for a walker and difficulty with putting a walker on back seats,’’ he said. The draft report also recommends that all drivers of disabled people undertake necessary training. ‘‘I think there’s a need for educating good and empathetic drivers, especially about assisting people,’’ Mr Marriott said. Doug Clark, a contributor to the taxi inquiry, said it was now a matter of looking at suitable locations for the central booking office to be located. He said a new group made up of people with disabilities , Transit Solutions Victoria Inc, had been formed. ‘‘It’s really the disabled people taking hold of their own destiny rather than relying on other groups,’’ he said. ‘‘Woody and (Woody’s wife) Carol have been instrumental in setting up this new system. We are now looking for members to get this up and running.’’

HAVE YOUR SAY Do you have issues with taxi services in Maroondah? Post a comment at maroondahweekly.com.au, on Facebook at facebook.com/MaroondahWeekly or on Twitter @MaroondahWeekly.

Maroondah Council made a joint submission to the inquiry as part of the Eastern Transport Coalition, which is made up of six other eastern metropolitan councils. The ETC submission supported a move to increase ‘pre-booked only’ taxis and introduce a access travel pass, both of which

would help disabled people. The submission also supported the restructuring of country and metropolitan zone boundaries and the ability of taxis to use bus lanes. ‘‘Since the ETC lodged its submission in July, there has been ongoing discussion between the councils and the taxi industry inquiry,’’ Maroondah city development director Phil Turner said. ‘‘The council will continue to work with the ETC and the taxi industry inquiry to work towards a positive outcome for our residents.’’ Public submissions to the inquiry have closed.

Re: Toolangi protest fury This is what the timber workers have to endure. When will the law do its job and remove these protesters from these places before someone gets hurt? George Limb (via web)

Gee - those poor intimidated terrified loggers. Now we see what really happened. Just doing some loading in the middle of the night when a couple of greenies caught them out with a video camera. And loggers say ‘‘greens tell lies’’. Mudlark (via web)

Re: No freeze on TAFE students I wouldn’t believe what Swinburne’s vicechancellor says based on past performances. She repeatedly assured Lilydale campus was a key part of Swinburne’s delivery . . . until very

recently of course. And let’s get it straight: the $35 million TAFE fees reduction is a smokescreen for Swinburne’s drastic and ruthless restructuring. If they wanted to keep Lilydale open, they could. It’s as simple as that. RIP Tertiary Education for the outer east and the underprivileged. David (via web)

Re: Men’s Shed in Yarra Glen I have no problem with the men having a shed, so long as the trees are not removed. I’m sure they can find an area where the shed can fit in, without having to remove any trees. Or, they will have to make their shed smaller. What on earth are they going to make or do? Where is the need to make such a large shed that would need the removal of so many beautiful, large trees? It would be a disgrace to remove the trees — find another solution or venue.

MOST of the current Maroondah councillors will have a crack at re-election in October. Councillors Rob Steane, Tony Dib, Ann Fraser, Nora Lamont, Les Willmott, Paul Macdonald and Natalie Thomas have all confirmed to the Weekly that they will run again. Cr Alex Makin of Mullum Ward said he was ‘‘undecided’’ and Cr Michael Macdonald of Wyreena Ward confirmed he would not be running again. Cr Macdonald said he was about to start his own electrical business and would not have the time to commit to being a councillor. Maroondah Council has nine councillor positions — three each for the Arrabri, Mullum and Wyreena wards. Councillors are elected for a four-year term. Cr Steane, the present mayor, said if he was reelected, it was ‘‘highly unlikely’’ he would put his hand up again for the role of mayor. ‘‘Someone else can have a go, I think,’’ he said. ‘‘But I will wait and see who ends up on the new

council and who puts their hand up for the mayoral role and make a decision.’’ The longest-service member on the present council is Cr Willmott, who first became a councillor back in 1983. Cr Fraser has been a councillor for 10 years and councillors Paul Macdonald and Thomas have both served seven years. Cr Dib has served five and Steane and Lamont four years. The 2012 council election is scheduled for Saturday, October 27. Councillor nominations open on September 20 and close on September 25. The council, in conjunction with the Victorian Electoral Commission and Municipal Association of Victoria, is hosting a information session for potential candidates next month. The information session is at 7pm, September 18, at the council chamber in Braeside Avenue, Ringwood. Residents should go to the VEC website to ensure their voting details are up to date.

Taskforce scrutinises councils’ super plan COUNCILLOR Les Willmott will represent Maroondah Council on a new taskforce set up by the Municipal Association of Victoria to look into its defined benefit superannuation scheme. The MAV is advocating for the Local Authorities Superannuation Fund defined benefit plan to be reinstated as an exempt public sector scheme. The taskforce has been set up to provide advice to the MAV on achieving its objectives. It follows last month’s announcement that Victorian councils will have to top up the almost $400 million shortfall to the fund. Under the LASF, which closed in 1993, employees are guaranteed a set amount when they retire. It means councils are forced to top up the fund intermittently when investments sour. If it were an exempt public sector scheme, it would put councils in the same situation as state and federal

governments, having an unfunded defined benefit liability. Maroondah has confirmed it will have to pay $7.9 million by July next year to subsidise the shortfall. Combined with Yarra Ranges and Knox councils, the total shortfall for the outer east is $21 million. The other two objectives the taskforce is pushing for is for councils to have access to lower borrowing rates through the Treasury Corporation of Victoria to help pay the shortfall and for the removal of the 15 per cent contributions tax that councils must pay on their shortfall payments. Cr Willmott said he was asked by council officers to be the representative. ‘‘I will be looking to see why the fund has not been performing as well as it should,’’ he said. ‘‘I fear it is only going to get worse.’’ He is one of 12 councillors on the taskforce. — Claire Thwaites

BY CLAIRE THWAITES FOR James and Jules North-Coombes, each Sunday is when sibling rivalry goes up a notch. The Ringwood East brothers, aged 18 and 20, play electric wheelchair hockey at weekly games held in Croydon by the Victorian Electric Wheelchair Sports Association. The brothers suffer from muscular dystrophy and this team sport gives them something to look forward to each week. It’s also a great way for them to meet new people and make friends. ‘‘It’s fun and good to be involved in sport,’’ Jules said. The brothers play in different teams but enjoy playing off against each other. Both admit to being very competitive. VEWSA provides sports and recreational activities for children and adults who need electric wheelchairs. Games include hockey, rugby and balloon soccer. A lot of players only have movement in their fingers and so some equipment is modified to suit them, such as ‘T-bar’ hockey sticks that can attach to the front of wheelchairs. Players can also take part in interstate and overseas matches. Grace David, whose 20-year-old son Luke plays in the association, said she loves going to watch his games at the Croydon Leisure Centre. ‘‘I go to all the games. I’m really passionate about the association because I think it’s just wonderful. ‘‘It provides an opportunity for these kids to excel at something, gain confidence and learn leadership skills.’’

Team players: James and Jules North-Coombes play electric wheelchair hockey in Croydon. Picture: Rob Carew She said going to watch the games has meant she has been able to meet other parents and carers going through a similar situation. ‘‘You can do some networking and finding out what services are out there. It’s good for me too, I guess.’’ The association is always looking for more particpants to get involved. The next hockey season starts on September 9. VEWSA welcomes female and male participants ranging in many age groups. VEWSA is run by a group of volunteers consisting of players, parents, families and friends. Details: vewsa.com.au.

INBRIEF Firearms seized Victoria Police’s Echo Taskforce, which investigates outlaw bikie gangs, have seized firearms from a Kilsyth clubhouse, believed to be that of the Rebels bikie gang. Police raided more than 30 properties across the state last Thursday , seizing 109 firearms in an ongoing initiative to disrupt organised criminal activity within outlaw motorcycle gangs. It is not known how many firearms were confiscated in the Kilsyth seizure. No arrests were made.

Gas leak scare Warrandyte Road in Ringwood was closed to traffic last Tuesday night following a gas leak. The leak came from an underground LPG tank at a 7-Eleven service station and was reported at 9.45pm by service station staff who heard a hissing noise. Staff organised a bulk tanker to decant 14,000 litres of LPG. A spokesman for the Metropolitan Fire Brigade said the operation began at 1.30am with crews in attendance throughout. The decanting was completed just after 9am last Wednesday morning and the road reopened shortly afterwards.

More speed signs Local MPs Christine Fyffe and Cindy McLeish have announced an upgrade to speed limit information along Maroondah and Melba

L

highways. Maroondah Highway between Coldstream and Alexandra and Melba Highway between Lilydale and Yea will remain 100 km/h zones, with VicRoads to install additional speed limit signs along both highways.

LEAVES IN YOUR GUTTERS? Protect your home against fire and flooding C Install Allclear Leafguard made from Colorbond® Steel

There is a Colorbond® product on the market AllClear Leafguard that can save you all the hassles regarding leaves blocking your gutters and creating a fire hazard.

It is for this reason that the AllClear Leafguard can safely give you an amazing 20 year warranty. AllClear Leafguard is secured under your tile or iron roof and to the front of your guttering.

AllClear Leafguard made from Colorbond® steel has many benefits, including protecting and prolonging the life of your gutters.

When the Leafguard is in place it cannot be seen from the ground, so it does not ruin the appearance of your roof.

Gone are the days of spending hours of your valuable weekend time up on a ladder cleaning your gutters by hand. AllClear Leafguard will do the job for you. By keeping your gutters clear of leaves, it will stop any overflowing which causes water damage to your home and will ensure gutters last years longer. AllClear Leafguard was developed by Ron Lienert after he spent 20 years in the home improvement business, including many years using other leafguard products. “I saw a need for a good Leafguard and was able to evolve a successful formula,” Ron Lienert said. The problem of bushfires is always upon us and there is a pressing need for home owners to protect their properties as best they can in the event of fire. One of the ways home owners can be prepared is by ensuring their gutters are free of leaves and debris that

could easily catch on fire, leading the flames to the body of your home. AllClear Leafguard is made of Colorbond® steel, the same material as your gutters – so it won’t melt in fire or perish and become brittle. It stops embers and burning leaves getting under the roof. When there are no leaves on the roof or in the gutter there is nothing to burn so the embers just sit and then go out. Fire prone areas are being urged to get their gutters fitted with metal leafguards to protect against potential bush fires.

AllClear Leafguard is designed especially for the collection of clean water for rain water tanks. The best way to save our valuable water is to have leaf and debris free gutters to stop the overflow and flooding. The gutters are still able to be flushed and cleaned if necessary to ensure clean and hygienic tank water all year round. The Australian made AllClear Leafguard has proved extremely successful over the years being recognized as the more superior Leafguard on the market in Victoria, NSW, SA, QLD, WA and TAS. AllClear staff have been trained in all aspects of leaf and gutter problems to help bring this amazing product to you. We are available to give obligation free quotes and good advice by calling AllClear Leafguard & Gutter on freecall 1800 426 607.

NEWS ●

A big, warm cuddle for a little battler BY CLAIRE THWAITES WHEN she was 33 weeks pregnant, Croydon’s Nami Clarke and her husband Andy got some heartbreaking news — the kind no expectant parent wants to hear. Doctors said their unborn baby girl had a serious kidney disease and would be likely to live for only a few days after birth. Baby Dulcie was born on June 28 — and, defying all odds, she is getting stronger and healthier each day. ‘‘She is being a normal naughty baby who’s keeping us up at night,’’ her proud mother said. Dulcie suffers from autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease. It’s a disease she had a one in 20,000 chance of developing and will most likely result in the need for a transplant at some point. ‘‘I had a scan at 33 weeks that showed my amniotic fluid was down, so they did a follow-up scan a few weeks later,’’ Mrs Clarke said. ‘‘I was concerned but not alarmed at this point.’’

The Clarkes then met with a geneticist who delivered the devastating news. ‘‘I just felt shocked. Absolutely shocked. And sadness. I actually don’t remember much about that appointment at all — it’s such a blur.’’ Dulcie was delivered via natural birth at 361⁄2 weeks. She was on oxygen for the first 12 hours but since then has exceeded all expectations. Together with 2 1⁄2-year-old son Mannus, the family and a group of friends are gearing up to take part in the Big Red Walk to support Kidney Health Australia. They have been overwhelmed by the support so far that has helped them already raise $5000 for the charity. ‘‘We have had donations from people we have not seen for 10 years. It has been incredible.’’ The Big Red Walk is on Father’s Day — this Sunday — at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kings Domain. To donate to the Clarkes’ appeal visit everydayhero.com.au/hero_pages/view_posts/ clarkeys_kidneys.

Giving students the power to repower BY CLAIRE THWAITES HIGH school students from Maroondah, Yarra Ranges and Knox are gearing up to make a stand on climate change. The Australian Youth Climate Coalition is holding a sustainability summit for students next Tuesday at Tintern School in Ringwood East. Lilydale resident Ryan Shaw, an AYCC member, said the summit would have students from years 9 to 11 in attendance from a number of schools. Mr Shaw, who is studying for his masters in environmental science, got involved with the AYCC after being challenged by a professor to get more actively involved in making a change. This is the group’s third summit this year and the first in Melbourne’s outer east. ‘‘Generally the students come to these things a bit bright-eyed and not knowing what’s going on with climate change — but they leave more aware,’’ Mr Shaw said. ‘‘It all about empowering the students. We want them to not just take part but take on lead-

ership roles to encourage change within their schools.’’ He said students were encouraged to come up with projects they could do at school to make a difference, such as bicycle-powered movie nights or an event to raise money to get solar panels installed at the school. ‘‘One school in the past started a plastic bottle ban. It totally varies.’’ Following this summit, the goal is that most of the 200 students will take part in AYCC’s new campaign Youth Decide, in which the youth of Australia will be having a vote on Australia’s renewable energy target. ‘‘After this vote I, along with 100 AYCC volunteers, will be walking over 300 kilometres from Port Augusta to Adelaide, as a part of the Repower Port Augusta campaign,’’ Mr Shaw said. ‘‘In short, coal-fired power plants are being shut down and there is the opportunity for Australia to have its first concentrated solar thermal plant.’’ The walk will take place in late September. To find out more, visit aycc.org.au.

FEATURESTORY

And the beat goes on They’re police, but their mission is music and making people feel good, writes LORETTA HALL. t can be a glamorous life fronting a showband, but this is not one of those days. The band’s equipment truck, emptied of trunks of brass instruments and sound gear, doubles as a hasty change-room for Elise Beattie as she transforms from “worker ant” roadie to lead singer in a shopping mall in Melbourne’s east. Long loose hair is secured in a no-nonsense plait, and casual clothing discarded for navy trousers, sensible flat black shoes and a crisp light-blue shirt with an epaulette and stripe on each shoulder. Only the showbiz shades remain from her civilian guise as Beattie prepares to front the Victoria Police Showband with fellow senior constable Daina Jowsey under the midday sun for the mostly unsuspecting shoppers and commuters of Box Hill. Music director (and prominent Melbourne musician) Daryl McKenzie is absent, so Beattie and Jowsey consult over a whiteboard song list and a takeaway coffee while fellow band members set up 500 leads and an array of instruments for the gig. They choose songs from hundreds of the band’s own arrangements, mixing swing with jazz, classical, musical theatre, rock and pop. Beattie is down for Adele’s Rolling in the Deep, Jowsey is opening with Dancing in the Street. Together. they will close with what Beattie says is a crowd favourite, The Flower Duet, a soaring soprano aria from French opera Lakme. It is one of the tracks they performed for the Showband’s Divas CD, sales of which aid the police force’s Blue Ribbon Foundation community program. There are a few curious glances from passersby as Beattie completes her assigned chores and sets up the microphones. But once she emerges from the back of the truck an audience begins to gather and several shoppers question the diminutive but authoritative figure at the microphone stand. “As soon as you are in uniform there’s a certain level of interest; people come up and ask what you are doing,” Beattie says. “We explain to them that what we are doing is a full-time job.” It has been a full-time occupation since the 1980s, when professional musicians were first sworn in as police members. When the police band originated 120 years ago it was formed by those on the beat who volunteered to play an instrument part-time. In the 1980s, Beattie was singing Grizabella’s Memory from the musical Cats on Box Hill school Our Lady of Sion College’s stage, dressed in a black leotard with a newspaper-stuffed tail. “It’s not like it was here when I was at school [in Box Hill],” Beattie says. “It’s a bit different now; there is a big drug problem and a lot of youth unemployment. “In the break, people talk about bad experiences they have had living around here, and their experiences with police. You get comments like,

‘I usually hate coppers but youse are all right’. “A lot of what we do is PR, and the music reaches people and you see smiles on their faces. “Our primary role is to perform for graduations and police functions, but otherwise we perform at anything community-based that benefits the community.” The showband plays across Melbourne and regional Victoria and its members come from all suburbs across Melbourne, from Eltham to Sandringham. Gig locations this year have included the city’s Federation Square, Nunawading, Ashburton, St Kilda, Williamstown, Frankston, Emerald Lake, Geelong, Swan Hill and Castlemaine. There are school performances, too, and the public can check the police website for the showband’s calendar for a performance in their neighbourhood. More glitzy gigs include charity nights, when Beattie frocks up to perform at venues that have included Crown’s Palladium room, Hamer Hall and Melbourne’s World Congress Centre. Beattie, 46, has been on patrol with the showband around Victoria for 11 years and previously sang with the Victoria Police’s rock band Code One for six years. In January, her role in the police force was recognised with a national award for “rockin’ it”. She wears the stripe of a senior constable “and we have full police powers of arrest”. But, as with the rest of the 24 showband members, Beat-

August 28, 2012

tie says she is not operational as a police officer. Band leader Sergeant Pat Hudson, who has in the past been in the back-row line-up on trombone, watches from beyond the police-taped stage edge as the party gets started. Music spills into the mall and an audience builds. Most of the smoking section — a halfbrick wall outside the supermarket — is full. Hudson says that at the height of the set about 200 people are toe-tapping to the tunes. The youth of Box Hill that the showband is reaching out to largely respond to the offer of musical friendship, with most unplugging at least one earphone to catch a Lady Gaga or Beyonce song. An older fan, Robert Fraser, 59, dances through all three sets, oblivious to the fact he is mostly dancing solo on the pavement. Fraser is a regular at showband gigs, says Hudson. A middle-aged woman kicks off her heels, dumps her handbag under the watchful gaze of the band’s brass section and joins him for a track. Towards the end of the last set, a trio of teens lose their inhibitions and let their lanky limbs loose. Fans can find performance dates on the police website, which also lists gigs for the other two police bands, Code One and the Victoria Police Pipe Band, which brings bagpipes and drums to many Melbourne parades. Collectively, the three bands perform about 500 gigs a year and reach about 650,000

Victorians a year. “One of the things the band does is to go find people who can’t come to us,” Hudson says. ‘‘Often it’s in an unstable environment not particularly conducive to bands.” In times of hardship and disaster, the showband is dispatched to communities where an uplifting tune can bring some cheer or relief in tough times. “When there were floods in country Victoria a year ago we had a week-long tour in those regions and based ourselves in Horsham. We were bused out to country towns I had never heard of and all 50 people in the town came to see us. When we do a show for them it’s the only thing that has made them smile in a long time.” The performances are not all about the music and Beattie spends a lot of time talking to locals. “That’s experiential contact,’’ says Hudson. ‘‘The audience doesn’t just see a copper in a uniform. They see Elise sing and talk to them and take a positive experience from it.” Beattie recalls a big community memorial service after the 9/11 attacks in the US. ‘‘Lots of American expats and government officials were there. I sang the Australian anthem and Daina sang the American anthem. It was one of the hardest things I have had to do. There was not a dry eye in the place. “After events like that you go home and have a cry. At those emotional gigs, that’s when your professional experience comes flooding back because you have got to concentrate on getting the job done.” In addition to Cats, Beattie took lead roles in her school’s Gilbert and Sullivan productions and studied voice at Melba Conservatorium and primary teaching in music at Victoria College. She gained professional experience with Dame Joan Sutherland in Othello for the Australian Opera (now Opera Australia) and with The Wiggles in front of a crowd of 80,000. “I still have singing lessons because it is important that our music is as high a standard as it can be,” Beattie says. “Being with the band involves a regimented lifestyle, especially for the singers to stay fit and healthy. “In a 10-day fortnight we get four days off, and those 10 days can be at any time. We spend many hours travelling . . . being on tour with the band on the bus is like being in a sitcom. There are some incredibly funny personalities.”

Slice of Australiana at Kallista festival BY CLAIRE THWAITES HE Sunnyside artists’ colony in Kallista was a haven for some of Australia’s most wellknown creative people — and this proud history will soon be celebrated with its very own festival. The inaugural Sunnysiders Festival will be held this Friday and Saturday at various venues throughout Kallista. The likes of poet CJ Dennis, painter Tom Roberts, illustrators Hal Guy and David Low and sculptor Web Gilbert worked in the area between 1910 and 1930. Their work and legacies will be acknowledged with a variety of events, including a historical display by the Monbulk Historical Society, poetry workshops and performances by students from the Kallista Primary School choir. It culminates with an evening of poetry, yarns, music, supper and more. Festival convener Maria Bohan said the concept for the festival was about celebrating all that Sunnyside represents — a place of ‘‘much creativity and great fun’’ — with jokes, music, stories and laughter.

T

‘‘Dennis’s tram was one of several that were sited in the paddocks of Sunnyside Farm, the weekender of Garry and Roberta Roberts,’’ she said. ‘‘These trams were used by a number of writers and artists who spent time in what soon became known as the artists’ colony.’’ Ms Bohan, who has lived in the area for more than 20 years, said Kallista was still a place heavily populated by artists, writers and musicians. ‘‘You can tell just by looking at people’s gardens that there is a lot of talent here,’’ she said. An eight-page booklet on the history of the area will be distributed at the festival, as the event was also about education, Ms Bohen said. The contribution of women would also be acknowledged with the stories of Roberta Roberts as well as Aeneas Gunn — author of We of the Never Never — being shared. A full program of events is available online. Booking are required for events — some are free and others paid for. There will be some tickets available at the door. Details: sunnysiders.org.au.

Song of celebration: Kallista Primary School pupils rehearse for the Sunnysiders Festival.

Call of the country Oh the bliss! Shake off those city hangups and de-stress at this retreat

STEPHEN TAYLOR PROPERTY EDITOR hen someone says: ‘Country living at its best’ there’s a chance they might be talking about picturesque ‘Dungullin’ at Glenburn, on the way to Mt Buller. It’s the ideal rural retreat with a cosy house, views from the verandah, lush paddocks and plenty of water storage. Who wouldn’t love a weekend away here? The outstanding rural holding is pleasantly situated down a no-through country road well away from the hustle and bustle. It’s divided into 12 main paddocks and two dams — one being a large 26 mega litres with a licence to pump. There’s excellent pasture, good fencing with cattle yards, a 20 metre x 9 metre four-bay shed and two other sheds all in excellent condition, as well as a chook run. The charming weatherboard homestead has three bedrooms, all with carpet and en suites,

W

and main bedroom with walk-in wardrobes. The timber kitchen has granite benches, gas hotplates, two electric ovens and a pantry. The open-plan living area is a standout with 4.2 metre stained timber ceilings and jarrah polished floors. Large windows overlook the paddocks. Walls and ceilings have full insulation, reverse-cycle airconditioning and wood heating. Wraparound verandahs add to the homestead flavour. There’s a separate studio or home office and well-established hedges and garden. The property has LPG gas, power and phone and 45,000-litre water tanks. So, pull up a chair and sit a spell; dust off the city stresses, take your time and let ‘Dungullin’ weave its country magic on you.

Peugeot makes styling statement Ewan Kennedy road tests French car-makerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new compact SUV he 4008 is French carmaker Peugeotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first entry into the booming compact SUV market. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of a joint venture between Peugeot and Mitsubishi and comes from the same Japanese factory as the Mitsubishi ASX. The ASX was launched here in July 2010 nearly two years ahead of the Peugeot. Although the two vehicles are almost identical under the skin, the Peugeot 4008 and Mitsubishi ASX have their own distinctive styling. Styling is a very personal thing, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve long been fans of the current Peugeot design theme, especially the wide-mouthed grille that stands out as the 4008â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dominant feature. Inside is a soft-texture fascia and lacquered piano-black centre console which add a gentle ambience. The controls are large and well-placed with an instrument panel thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back-lit day and night. Interior space is about par for the course with reasonable rear headroom despite the dipping roof line. The rear seat is only suitable for two adults or three pre-teen children, with borderline

T

rear legroom when the front seat is well back. Boot capacity is 416 litres with a relatively high loading lip, partly the result of having a fullsized spare wheel under the floor. Storage space expands to 1193 litres with the rear seatbacks folded with the alternative of a ski hatch behind the folding armrest. Peugeot 4008 comes in two equipment levels: Active (with 2WD and AWD, manual and CVT) and Allure (AWD and CVT only). The 4008 is offered only with a 2.0-litre petrol engine. With a price range of $28,990 to $38,490, the Peugeot 4008 offers excellent value for a European SUV or, more correctly, a European-styled SUV. Overall, the Peugeot 4008 is a neat, well-built and well-engineered compact SUV that combines the best from its two source continents. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more at home in an urban rather than a rural environment where the combination of relatively heavy weight and small engine means that it can struggle in hilly areas. Equipment levels are high and it offers excellent value for money.

Distinctive: The Peugeot 4008 combines European style and Japanese engineering.

Dominant Norsemen beat Lilydale to win week off NORWOOD earned itself a week off with a final-round win over Lilydale in the Eastern Football League division 1 competition on Saturday. The Norsemen’s 44-point win confirmed their place as minor premiers, leaving Scoresby and Vermont to battle for a chance to face them in the major semi-final on September 8. David Blackie, Brent English, John Holmes

and Jesse Newman were named best players for the Norsemen and Scott Day kicked four goals. South Croydon ended a tough season with a 39-point win over Blackburn with Nick King, Michael King, Ryan Humphrey and Liam Cox in the best players and Michael King kicking five goals. Scoresby handed Croydon an 83-point loss to end its tenure in division 1, with Croydon to be

AGAINST the wind and against the run of play, Ringwood made a belated final quarter comeback to force extra time in their Eastern Football League division 3 elimination final against Mitcham on Sunday. The Redbacks trailed by 19 points in the final term but put on a run of goals to send the game into extra time. Then with only seconds left in the extra session, Vinnie Jones found Redbacks forward Adam Parsons with a lace-out pass, allowing Parsons to mark and then go back to kicking a 50-metre goal that secured a threepoint victory. Redbacks coach Josh Toohey said his side had shown great fight to snatch the game at the end.

‘‘It was really a players sort of match. You didn’t have any control,’’ he said. ‘‘Everyone was out of their feet, so to come back from 19 points down against the wind and against the momentum of the game was a courageous effort from the boys.’’ Toohey admitted that in the final term he couldn’t predict whether his side would find the goals needed to win. ‘‘I was a little both ways on that one. I knew the boys would never give up and we played with one less backman and pushed another player in the forward-midfield area to throw everything at the win.’’ Toohey said his side would be much better for the game on a fast and ‘‘immaculate’’ Vermont Reserve, which he said was drastically different from the grounds the Redbacks had played on in

relegated to division 2 next season. Both Croydon and South Croydon had acting coaches to end the season and both have advertised for new coach applicants for 2013. East Ringwood fell to another loss in its final game, going down to Balwyn by 37 points. East Ringwood’s reserves have made the finals with the Roos to face Norwood in the division 1 reserves elimination final at Boronia on Sunday.

the past six weeks. ‘‘We struggled to adapt to it early in the game because we have basically played on bog-heaps in the past six weeks. ‘‘But it was a great surface and suited us. We just took a little time to adapt.’’ Toohey also said he felt a little disappointment for Mitcham and said he respected them for their performance on the day. The Redbacks now face Boronia an an elimination semi-final on Sunday, again at Vermont. Toohey said despite playing extra time his side would be fit and ready for the clash. ‘‘Boronia is a big-bodied team and it will be a very skillful, contested game. ‘‘Playing on Sunday, we’ll probably be in better shape than usual because the boys couldn’t go out on Saturday or Sunday night.’’

Hawks snare elusive title FOUR years of disappointment were wiped away by Ringwood Hawks men on Saturday night. The Hawks claimed the Big V state championship men’s title with a come-from-behind 86-78 win over Eltham Wildcats in game 2 of their grand final series in front of a sell-out crowd at Maroondah Stadium. The Hawks won the series 2-0. It may have taken three trips to the grand final series over a four-year period but the Hawks finally reached their destiny with a 17th straight win. After winning a tough battle over the Wildcats in game one, the Hawks were considered red hot favourites to complete the sweep. Maroondah Stadium was packed to the rafters with an extra 200 seats brought in for the Hawks faithful, who have waited since 1999 to get another state championship banner. After trailing at three-quarter time the Hawks pulled themselves into the lead midway through the last term only for the Wildcats to get within one point with 58 seconds remaining after two free throws from Derrick McDonald. The Hawks looked inside to import Sam Belt, but with the double team coming, Belt flipped a pass to Hawks veteran Matt Snowball, who casually nailed the biggest three-pointer of his life, giving the Hawks a four-point lead and the championship. The Wildcats in-bounded the ball

Champions at last: Ringwood Hawks won the Big V state championship men’s title on Saturday night. and tried to score quickly, but another Hawks guard, Skyler Bowlin (24 points), made a steal and subsequent foul shots put the game beyond the Wildcats. Adrien Sturt led the Hawks with 25 points and Cam Tragardh led the Wildcats with a game-high 30 points. Bowlin was named grand final most valuable player and was full of praise for his coach Ken Harrington and teammates. “I am so grateful for Kenny bringing me here, I have absolutely loved it and I want to come back

next year if they will have me,” Bowlin said. For the old stalwarts, Snowball and Willie Weimer, the win was the culmination of years of hard work and also a great deal of disappointment that pushed them through that final 10 minutes of the game. “We were not going to walk off the floor without pouring our heart and soul into every single possession,’’ an emotional Snowball said. “This championship is sweet because we really had to earn every inch of it.”
