I was in no real pain. I was just feeling a bit weak, had some constipation and diarrhoea and was losing a bit of weight. Nothing too serious. At first they thought it was gastro, but I went back to the doctor and tested positive to a faecal occult blood (FOB) test. On May 9, 2011, I had a colonoscopy and they found a large tumour in my colon. Then I went for a scan and they found the cancer had spread to my liver and lungs. It’s a cliche, but my world turned upside down. I felt fit and strong, I cycled 25 kilometres a day, yet I had stage four bowel cancer. It was a real shock to me; my life was suddenly at risk. My oncologist has said it is hard to really know what the odds are. It’s a long journey and I’d certainly encourage people to get tested to avoid it. Bowel cancer is the second greatest killer in cancer diseases. People should get tested urgently if they have mild symptoms and, even if they don’t, they should get tested every year once they turn 50. Some people, particularly guys, are a bit shy about getting tested. Do it. It is simple, it’s clean, private and non-invasive. Details: bowelcanceraustralia.org.

The new Royal Park toilet is actually in the garden bed – that is the real issue (‘‘Protesters discover toilet humour’’, MTW, January 27). Shrubs and plants were removed, ostensibly to replant this unique section of the Australian Native Garden. Money, time and expense were then wasted as there was no sewer connection there. An ideal spot was literally just around the corner. Royal Park continues to have chunks of park taken away from its owners – US – often for private profit. This park is ‘‘vital as the lungs of the city’’, as proclaimed by Superintendent (later Governor) Charles La Trobe; vital for humans; vital for our native flora and fauna. Join Royal Park Protection Group to help save it for perpetuity. Parks matter! Margaret Jungwirth / Royal Park Protection Group

Unfortunate choice It is just unfortunate that the new Royal Park toilet is sited in such an unfortunate place (‘‘Protesters discover toilet humour’’, MTW, January 27). Trees damaged, gardens put under threat, wonderful inviting view of the Australian Native Garden ruined. It would have been so easy to site it in a better location. Ena / via website

Battle over ‘dumb growth’ in city fringe TENSION is mounting between the City of Melbourne and the state government over plans for large-scale developments on the CBD’s fringe. Last week City of Melbourne councillors voted to dispute a state government decision to approve a 239 metre tall Southbank development.

Councillors argued the development was too high and did not fit with the City of Melbourne’s vision for the neighbourhood’s growth. Developments greater than 25,000 square metres are automatically referred to the state planning minister for approval, a rule lord mayor Robert Doyle and councillors say should be abolished. Cr Doyle said Planning

Minister Matthew Guy ruled on developments on a case-by-case basis whereas the council considered its planning vision for an area. ‘‘There’s always going to be tension between those two things and I don’t shy away from that,’’ he said. ‘‘I don’t care what colour the state government is, I’ll go in to bat for the City of Melbourne.’’ He said he was not against develop-

ment. "The big question for us is: is it smart growth or dumb growth? Dumb growth is just saying ‘yep we can throw up towers anywhere we want as high as we like and it doesn’t matter’. Well it does matter, because the overall effect of that will be a diminution in our liveability and our way of life.’’ The council is finalising its planning vision for the inner-north, including

No charge for developer A DEVELOPER who knocked down a historic Collingwood facade despite a Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal order protecting it could escape legal action. Builders demolished the period facade and parapet in Johnston Street in December. Yarra council announced soon after that it would take Zero Nine Pty Ltd to VCAT and seek an enforcement order. However, a private meeting before the case has resulted in the developer agreeing to rebuild the facade and parapets. If that is not done, the council has paperwork ready to lodge for an enforcement order. A council spokesman said the developer had not been charged with any planning offences but officers were investigating the matter. Collingwood and Abbotsford Residents’ Association spokesman Fred Allen said the outcome was a ‘‘slap on the wrists’’ and did nothing to deter others from doing something similar. Zero Nine Pty Ltd could not be contacted for comment. – Alana Schetzer

Saying it with anagrams Darebin Greens councillor Trent McCarthy doesn’t mind ruffling feathers. At last year’s Darebin Music Festival, he performed a show dedicated to former colleague and current Health Services Union secretary Diana Asmar. Now he’s taking on ALP titan and Batman MHR Martin Ferguson in his latest show, A Sign from Nature? He has billed his four shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival as a battle with the Energy and Resources Minister. ‘‘It’s about me trying to develop a bromance with him. Maybe it’s not too late for him to become a climate change hero.’’ Mr Ferguson’s response? ‘‘Good luck to him and I hope his show is as successful as his work for Rio Tinto was.’’ In 2008, Cr McCarthy performed in a friend’s work safety video shot in the mining giant’s grounds.

A PUSH to celebrate cultural diversity by flying other nations’ flags within the Moreland City Council has been stymied. Last month the council staged a small celebration to mark Western Sahara’s national day, but did not fly the flag outside Coburg Town Hall. The gesture was a compromise, after a motion put forward by Moreland councillor Lita Gillies to fly the Western Saharan flag raised objections. At the council’s February meeting Moreland chief executive Peter Brown said the council had a practice of only flying the Australian and Aboriginal flags. He said allowing the Western Saharan flag to fly could create a precedent to fly other nations’ flags – which had caused community angst in the past. The council only had two flags poles outside the Coburg Town Hall and council would either have to

‘How do we support the diverse cultural groups in the community?’ install a third pole or potentially not fly the Australian or indigenous flag, he said. Councillor John Kavanagh said although intended to unite the community, raising one nation’s flag could actually be divisive. Cr Gillies said it was time to invest-

Spiffy thief sought

igate a change in the council’s flag policy – and that if council flew every nation’s flag it could not be accused of making a political statement. South ward councillor Meghan Hopper said she supported the idea of flying other nations’ flags, but she was ‘‘uncomfortable with the idea of removing the indigenous flag on any day’’. ‘‘If you raise every country’s flag on its national day it’s not a political statement, it’s a statement of diversity,’’ she said. ‘‘You can’t be picking and choosing which country you are commemorating.’’ Cr Samantha Ratnam said she thought last week’s function to celebrate the Western Saharan community was a good compromise. She said a review of the council’s flag policy was worth considering but the council should also explore how else it can honour a nation. ‘‘The question really is how do we support the diverse cultural groups in the community?’’ Cr Ratnam said.

Police are searching for a well-dressed thief who stole more than $20,000 worth of jewellery from a Preston jewellery store this month. The incident occurred on February 2 inside a shopping centre on Murray Road about 1pm when the man walked into the shop and asked to see several pieces of jewellery. He tried on several items and asked to see more. He walked out of the store with the items and it was only after he left that staff realised what had happened. The man is believed to be responsible for a series of similar thefts across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. He is described as about 180 centimetres tall, Caucasian and with a thin build and light brown hair.

Council is seeking feedback on Amendment C133 to the Yarra Planning Scheme until Monday 29 April. The amendment seeks to introduce a Local Planning Policy titled Environmentally Efficient Design to the Local Planning Policy Framework. An environmental efficiency design report would be required for new developments. The proposed amendment includes: • An update to Clause 21.07, Ecologically Sustainable Development. • A proposal to include Clause 22.17, Environmentally Efficient Design Local Policy.

Yarra’s fresh flush Up to six billion litres of fresh water is being released over a three-week period into the Yarra River to help improve habitat for aquatic life and enhance river health. The water release, which will benefit the river between Millgrove and Dights Falls, aims to mimic the waterway’s natural process of flushing sediment and organic material from the river bed, maintaining habitat for bugs and fish life, and nurturing native vegetation along the river bank. It also assists with fish migration.

Keep your trailers at bay Residents are reminded to store their trailers on private property, not on roads or in public spaces. In Yarra, it is illegal for a trailer to be kept on the road for more than one hour unless it is attached to a registered vehicle or has a permit. Trailers left on roads or on public land (such as nature strips) can be impounded, with owners having to prove ownership of their trailer and pay a $337 fee to reclaim it.

A project to replace a 100-year-old sewer syphon underneath the Yarra River in Kew and Abbotsford has been completed. Yarra Valley Water’s $2.7 million syphon is in operation, connecting the sewerage network on either side of the river, which has been unaffected by the works.

INBRIEF

Flag idea fails to fly BY CHRIS HINGSTON


Regulars missing route 509 FORMER Hope Street bus rider Sylvia Gascoigne says she was not the hardest hit by the state government’s decision to axe the service – after all, she ‘‘only’’ used the bus for 16 years. The 83-year-old Brunswick West resident has put together a ‘‘Keep in Touch’’ contact list of the service’s regular users, including the number of years they rode the bus – with some reporting they used the service for 25, 46 and even 50 years. Public Transport Victoria stopped the 509 route – Melbourne’s shortest – on September 30 last year. ‘‘I don’t know what’s happened to half of them since they stopped the bus,’’ Ms Gascoigne said. Some of the former passengers reunited last week after Brunswick MLA Jane Garrett called into question the data cited by the state government in the decision to axe the route. A Freedom of Information request by Ms Garrett uncovered documents showing bus patronage was closer to two to three passengers per trip,

Still waiting – Sylvia Gascoigne and Royden Ashdown instead of the one per trip figure quoted by Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder. Larissa Garvin, spokeswoman for Mr Mulder, said the decision was based on a number of factors.

‘‘Unfortunately, Route 509 was not sustainable,’’ she said. Royden Ashdown, 67, said losing the service made it harder for him to travel to the shops to buy fresh fruit and vegetables.

FUNDING is being urgently sought to improve safety standards at three of the most dangerous level crossings in Darebin that were named in a 2008 report as being among the worst in Australia. Independent councillor Bo Li said money for feasibility studies on how to improve safety at Bell Street and Murray Road in Preston and High Street, Reservoir, was needed as a ‘‘matter of priority’’. Council director of city works and development Michael Ballock said a letter to the state government was being prepared seeking funding, the amount of which the council did not disclose. According to VicRoads, between 2008 and 2012 one person was seriously injured in a crash at the Murray Road level crossing and another seri-

ous injury occurred at the Bell Street level crossing. Five crashes were recorded at the Reservoir level crossing, including one crash that caused a serious injury. None of the crashes involved a collision with a train. Australasian Railway Association chief executive Bryan Nye said he ‘‘strongly supports’’ any proposals to upgrade the safety of existing level crossings. “Melbourne has more level crossings than any other city in Australia, so it is important that the upgrading of particularly dangerous sites is prioritised,’’ he said. There are more than 23,000 level crossings across Australia and about 70 collisions and thousands of near misses every year. There are 18 level crossings in Darebin, eight of which are on arterial roads.

Smoke without the fire The smoking debate re-ignited by Melbourne councillor Richard Foster might be losing oxygen, but work to create smoke-free zones continues to roll on behind the scenes. Cr Foster made international news with his pitch to stamp out smoking in public places in the Melbourne council area. But the council is yet to hand out a penalty for smoke-free zones backed last year. A ‘‘ban’’, it turns out, is quicker to say than it is to push through the bureaucratic process.

A sign of bygone times Melbourne’s history is being preserved, one ancient billboard at a time. AGFA might be a familiar acronym (Aktien-Gesellschaft fu¨r Anilinfabrikation) to anyone over 25, but as a company it was famous for making photographic film, which is as redundant as the Walkman. It leads us to wonder why the billboard over that busy intersection advertises a rarely used product. Are the days of film not actually over? Or is it a derelict ghost-sign? We wish the old billboard many more years. May it one day be placed in a museum of once-vital anachronisms such as CD-ROMs and videotapes.

One voice stands apart from the call of the chattering classes for extra protection for the environment. Victoria’s timber lobby wants you to cross your eyes in ecstasy and hit ‘‘print’’ on all those emails. Shaun Ratcliff, of the Victorian Association of Forest Industries, subtly signs off his emails with the encouragement: ‘‘Please don’t feel bad about printing this email as the pulp and paper industry is an important sector in making forestry viable.’’ They even print it in the colour green. So rather than spread hypocrisy by printing it in this weekly book of dead trees, we salute Ratcliff’s get-up-and-go. In his words, ‘‘Go ahead – press ‘print’.’’

Meetings to go on record BY CHRIS HINGSTON RESIDENTS will be able to listen to recordings of major City of Melbourne meetings at the click of a mouse, in a move hailed as a win for transparency at the council. Last week Melbourne councillors agreed in principle to post audio recordings of monthly council meetings and its committee meetings online. It is hoped the audio recordings will be available on the council’s website in April. But views are split on how the flashing red light will influence meeting conduct, with some councillors fearing recordings will encourage grandstanding, while others say it will improve the quality of debate. Lord mayor Robert Doyle said he did not want residents to be discouraged from presenting at meetings.

‘‘If the feeling of being recorded intimidated people to the point where they didn’t present – I think that would be a great pity,’’ Cr Doyle said. He said mechanisms needed to be found to allow residents who were uncomfortable with the change to opt out of recordings. Cr Rohan Leppert said four resident groups had written in support of recording meetings. He said posting audio online would encourage public interest in council decisions. Cr Stephen Mayne said he ‘‘strongly’’ supported audio recordings. He said if councillors knew they were being recorded it might ‘‘check excessive behaviour’’ and encourage ‘‘intelligent, lively debate’’. Cr Ken Ong feared the opposite, saying he believed recording meetings might lead to grandstanding.

BY ALANA SCHETZER DAREBIN council is promising to repair its relationship with the community, which has taken a battering following a State Ombudsman’s investigation into claims of bribery and conflict of interest. The council will adopt a new governance charter, which is open to public consultation and promises ‘‘greater levels’’ of transparency, trust, respect and understanding between the council and the community. It will be implemented through an action plan, which could involve livestreaming council meetings on the internet and increasing the council’s visibility in the community. Darebin Appropriate Development Association spokeswoman Maria Poletti welcomed the memorandum of understanding, and said the community had long called for better con-

sultation and transparency around development and planning issues. ‘‘I think the new council are trying to distance themselves from the old council and that is a good thing,’’ she said. The move comes almost 12 months after the State Ombudsman opened an investigation into the council following allegations of conflict of interest and bribery. A draft report was released late last year which recommended the current council be sacked. The Ombudsman report is expected to be released soon. The Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate is also investigating the council. Mayor Tim Laurence denied the charter was a public relations stunt, and said it was a genuine response to community concerns. Public consultation on the draft document is currently open.

Taco Truck drives petition The continuing battle between food trucks and City of Yarra Council is heating up, with an online petition against the current permit rules gaining traction. The Taco Truck’s GoPetition website page had 101 signatures at the time of going to press, and called on the council to allow the popular roaming restaurants to gain an easier foothold in the area. ‘‘We, the undersigned, love tacos (or love someone who does) and believe this withholding of deliciousness a disservice to City of Yarra residents,’’ it states. It follows Taco Truck’s announcement that the five locations it had applied to trade in had all been rejected.

COVERSTORY

As the world acknowledges the triumphs and tribulations of women on International Women's Day this Friday, Alana Schetzer shines the spotlight on Melbourne's most influential females

ustralian women have made huge strides since an International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen in 1910 came up with the idea of a day to honour the achievements of women around the world and recognise the struggle for equality. Australia has a female prime minister, a female governor-general, a female attorney-general and a smattering of women on the boards of our largest companies. But on the eve of the 2013 International Women’s Day, on March 8, it’s clear the battle for equality between the sexes is far from won. According to the latest figures Australian women earned 17 per cent less than men in 2012 and just 10 per cent of managerial positions and about 25 per cent of new board positions were held by women. Seven out of 10 federal and state parliamentarians are men – a ratio that hasn’t changed in 10 years. Men receive twice the number of awards and nominations than women for an

Marilyn Warren

Whether you’re a fan or not, Julia Gillard’s mantle as one of the most powerful women in Australia is irrefutable. Australia’s first female prime minister has weathered more storms in her first term than any other PM in recent memory. Her unmarried and childless status has made her a target for those who want to paint her as uncaring or unable to understand family life. But she has managed to do what Kevin Rudd couldn’t – successfully push through reforms on the mining and carbon taxes and introduce a national disability insurance scheme that will improve the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of people.

LESLIE CANNOLD

LOUISE ASHER

Born and raised in the US, Leslie Cannold is recognised as one of Australia’s leading thinkers, feminists and ethicists. A vocal supporter of the pro-choice movement, Cannold offers considered, thought-provoking insights into seemingly complicated issues and has won applause for her work on gender discrimination and challenging the work/life balance. In 2011, Cannold was named the Australian Humanist of the Year, and continues her work to fight for women’s right to control their own bodies. Why she’s influential: For providing smart, considered ideas about society.

Although she has kept a low profile since the Coalition came to power in 2010, Asher is a powerful behind-the-scenes player in state politics and is considered by many to be a grounding force in the Liberal Party. One of the few women selected for the male-dominated frontbench, Asher is deputy leader of the Liberal Party and the minister for the major portfolios of innovation, services and small business, and tourism and major events, the latter being something most Victorians have an interest in. Why she’s influential: For advocating for more women to get into politics.

ANN PEACOCK

A controversial thought-provoker, the ever quotable Catherine Deveny gets people talking, whether it’s about feminism, cycling, love or social equality. A writer, comedian and social commentator, Deveny rejects the idea that women need to behave a certain way. In the process, she has influenced a whole generation of women not content to play along with traditional roles society maps out for them.

As head of Australia’s biggest privately held specialty fashion retailer, Milgrom has been lauded as one of the top 25 business leaders in the country. Her success isn’t confined to one field: Milgrom is president of the National Gallery of Victoria and in 2010 was awarded an Officer of the Order of Australia for her contribution to business and the arts. Why she’s influential: She’s played the game by her own rules and won, convincingly.

PROFILE

Underbelly laughs Author Nick Place’s new novel blends crime and humour on a familiar inner-north stage. Chris Hingston has a coffee with him

A

tomica on Brunswick Street is one of many cafes name-checked in Nick Place’s new novel Roll With It, and it’s also where we meet to discuss the book. Place makes it clear the book’s protagonist, Tony Laver, is not based on himself, although they share some characteristics. An addiction to caffeine is one them. It is in cafes like Atomica and Marios – another of Place’s Fitzroy haunts – he tapped away on his laptop, crafting the novel. He says he never wanted to be one of those cafe-writers who sat on one coffee for hours; now he is on a first-name basis with a host of baristas. He estimates five local cafes will be represented at the party to celebrate Roll With It’s release. Place is the author of four novels for young teens and Roll With It is his first crime book. The book follows Detective Senior Sergeant Laver, who is shunted from the major-crime unit to the police bike squad after he shoots and kills a suspect. Place, a former police rounds journalist, says

he always wanted to write a crime novel that included the odd joke, for balance. ‘‘Most crime stories are so forensic and so serious,’ he says. “I wanted to write something dangerous and edgy but with humour.” Place says he worked hard to achieve an authentic tone, a “very deadpan, poker-faced humour”. More than one colleague has a laugh at the expense of Laver’s new lycra uniform. Laver is given a fully fleshed-out life with family, friends and a love life, in a reaction to the lone-wolf protagonists of other crime tales. ‘‘The detectives are often these very dour, ‘one man who cannot be bent’ types,’’ Place says. ‘‘But why don’t they have friends? Why don’t they have a family? I wanted to make Laver more of a well-rounded character.’’ Place, 47, began work in newspapers as a copy boy at the age of 17 and covered crime early in his career as a journalist. His novel is a mix of real and fictitious

stories. His main character shoots a suspect minutes after waking up, having dozed off while on an operation. This, Place says, is based on a true story. Other true anecdotes he collected were left out if they were considered too hard for the audience to swallow. ‘‘There are just these crazy stories, some of the ones that made the book I couldn’t have made up,” he says. “Some of them were so ridiculous I couldn’t include them.”

Like his cop character, Place spends a lot of time cycling around Melbourne’s inner-north. Roll With It’s characters inhabit a world quintessentially Melbourne – from the cafes to the street art. Place is already working on the sequel, hoping this will be the first in a series. Laver – and Place – appear to have a few more coffees ahead of them. I Roll With It, $24.95 through Hardie Grant.

Richard Gray on set in Torquay

The boys from Blinder

Director Richard Gray goes back to grassroots for a film about Australian rules football. By Daniel Paproth

he pantheon of great sports movies is long and illustrious. Raging Bull, Remember the Titans and Chariots of Fire are just a few gems in the genre. But in Australia, while we are renowned for our sporting passion, films on the subject have been frustratingly few and far between. Richard Gray, director of Blinder – the first Aussie rules film to hit the big screen in more than a decade – can’t put his finger on it. ‘‘I’ve never really understood why we didn’t make films about sport, it didn’t make sense to me,’’ he says. ‘‘It’s always felt weird that we weren’t making more films about subject matter that as a country we’re obviously pretty passionate about.’’ Blinder puts Oliver Ackland in the role of Tommy Dunn, a one-time budding superstar for the Torquay Tigers whose career was ruined by scandal. Gray hopes that it will herald a new era for the Australian sports film. ‘‘I don’t know why but Australian films often struggle to find an audience,’’ he says. ‘‘But if there’s one thing you know Aussies love, it’s sport, so it could become a real staple, you could build a new following for Aussie films if there

T

was one about footy or rugby or cricket every year. It’s something there’d be an audience for.’’ The 32-year-old now lives in Los Angeles with his wife, but grew up in Box Hill. It was there that his love affair with Aussie rules began, watching AFL and local footy. He speaks passionately about the latter, the focus of Blinder. Shot entirely around the coastal suburb of Torquay, Gray says it was all about bringing the grassroots to the fore. ‘‘The Bellarine Football League down there is a great league,’’ he says. ‘‘The ovals are beautiful and we picked Torquay because they have the recognisable Richmond colours and the best theme song. ‘‘We used films like Bend It Like Beckham and TV series like Friday Night Lights as references to why it didn’t need to be professional football, it could be suburban and still mean something.’’ For Gray, writer-producer Scott Didier and executive producers Glenn Archer, Sam Kekovich and Adrian Gleeson, the next task was to make both the story and the action – significant portions of the film are devoted to football matches – seem authentic and true.

After six weeks of shooting drama they shot only football for three weeks, playing matches every second day, which saw the actors mixing it with players from the Bellarine Football League. ‘‘When I first read the script I thought we could really do it. We went to Torquay and watched a lot of games, hung out in the clubrooms, really tried to make the film authentic, grassroots footy. If the actors wanted to win the ball they had to win the ball. ‘‘The key was to try and capture what it’s all about – taking your kid down, kicking the footy at half-time, listening to the coach’s speech, a can of beer is still three bucks, because that’s what a lot of people remember growing up.’’ Outside of the football, the film is given weight by an underage sex scandal. When photos are leaked to the media it destroys the careers of Tommy and his teammate James ‘‘Morts’’ Mortimer (Josh Helman). Tommy and Morts return to rebuild the club following the death of their former mentor, Coach Chang, played by an inimitable Jack

Thompson, reprising a similar role to the one he played in 1980 football classic The Club. The scandal was a way of increasing the stakes for the characters and giving it relevance to modern football, says Gray. ‘‘What was great about the original script was it really understood grassroots footy. All we did was bring in modern issues whether it was the young schoolgirl, dealing with drugs, underage sex, all that. ‘‘It was also to bring in the female side of it because it’s the women who really run these footy clubs. We wanted to make sure we were looking at both sides of it and it wasn’t just boys playing footy. ‘‘Whatever happens at the top level is obviously happening at the lower level as well. But what we were really interested in is seeing what happens to the people in a scandal a month after the newspapers stop running headlines. It’s a terrible mistake that someone makes and we wanted to explore the ramifications of that, and when you’re in a small town it cuts a lot deeper.’’ I Blinder opens on March 7.

DANCE MASSIVE

s enjoyable as this new take on the Dickens epic is, it’s hard to understand why BBC Films bothered making it. It’s barely a year since they screened a far more visceral TV version starring Ray Winstone and Gillian Armstrong. Most puzzling is that director Mike Newell doesn’t really bring anything new to his interpretation. There’s a tantalising sense in the opening, foggy scene that this might have the stark edginess of the recent Wuthering Heights, but this is sadly not to be. By the time Helena Bonham Carter turns up, rather inevitably, as Miss Havisham, we’re resigned to a film happy to meet our expectations, rather than subvert them. The last half-hour passes at a breakneck pace – not by virtue of any onscreen action so much as a rapid-fire series of explanations and resolutions. Orphan Pip (Jeremy Irvine) finds a fortune, loses it and wins another through little fault or achievement on his part, in the process winning the heart of icy Estella (Holliday Grainger). In cramming Dicken’s opus into two hours, Newell prunes back this unconvincing romance, to the point that he might have done away with it altogether. Without it, the film has the feel of a classic, if cartoonish, Boys’ Own adventure.

amie Daddo was 18 when a car accident left him in a coma for four months. Permanent brain damage has him confined to a wheelchair. Nearly 30 years on, having built a career as a poet and an artist, Daddo sets out to paint a prize-winning portrait of his more famous twin, Andrew. There’s a compelling sense of parallel lives, missed opportunities and what-might-havebeen to this brief, touching documentary. Jamie paints his identical twin as a sort of airbrushed mirror image, admitting Andrew is the man he would liked to have been. Likewise, Andrew talks enviously about his brother’s wit and brio. Both men choke when they address the crash that left their lives very different. Simple, warm and affecting, this is an engaging, small-scale human drama.

S

tornoway’s debut was an intimate, very personal piece in which singer Brian Briggs reflected on loves won and lost (mainly lost) in his small Oxfordshire town. It was an unashamedly pastoral album, occasionally lurching into Luddite territory, marvelling at leaves and trees while tutting at those city folk with their cars and mobile phones. Since then, the band has spent a couple of years touring the world. As engaging as their follow-up is, it loses something for venturing outside village limits. The Bigger Picture speaks of “savage wonder” that will make the listener’s eyes water. The jaunty track has a vaguely sea shanty air, as if Briggs is a grizzled sailor warning a young naif about taking to the waves. On Farewell Appalachia, the singer imagines himself living “with no phone or electricity” in a white stone cottage. But this idealisation of rural charms feels less convincing than it did last time. Maybe those savage wonders have seduced him, despite his protests.

[ 16 ] MELBOURNE TIMES WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

March 6, 2013

Similarly, the love songs feel a bit further from the skin. There’s little of the aching longing of the debut – here Briggs (now happily married) instead wishes he had known his wife as a child. It’s a sweet notion,

but perhaps a little too sweet. Indeed, the album as a whole could do with a bit more of the savoury. It’s still packed with whistle-able, rather adorable songs, but often sails a little too close to twee.

MOTORING

Peugeot purrs European engineering is worth the price. By Rod Easdown

I

100 kilometres in the city and six out back. This is the one for enthusiasts. All are small but beautifully formed. The interior is surprisingly roomy, especially in the front, but the cost is a small although deep boot. The nice surprise is a full-size spare under the floor. The 208 rides surprisingly well for a car of its size and weight and it handles beautifully, hanging on like a limpet through the bends and feeling extra nice as it does. It’s taut, controlled, solid and direct, and the stability control is not overly intrusive when you decide to get enthusiastic – an easy thing to do. Mind you, the electric power steering is overly light and lacks feel, and in summer the Sport’s heavily chromed gear knob gets too hot to touch. Otherwise the cabin is a nice place to be and a noticeable step up from its Japanese and Korean competitors. I found the electronics less than intuitive but they were reasonably easy to learn and commit to memory. And a speed

PEUGEOT 208 ALLURE limiter and cruise is fitted across the range. The 208 is undeniably expensive for its size (Mazda 2s, for example, start at $15,990) but it has the appeal of a European badge and you’ll justify the price as soon as you reach the first corner. I

’m not sure how to categorise the various Peugeot 208s on offer; maybe slow, medium and fast, perhaps meek, regular and emphatic. Whatever, the choices are clear cut. The base Active model ($21,355) comes with a 60-kilowatt, 1.2-litre, three-cylinder engine. The throttle is a bit touchy, it works hard and can get noisy, but the economy is first class. I used nine litres per 100 kilometres in the city and six in the country. It’s an unapologetically frugal car. The medium Allure has an 88-kilowatt, 1.6litre, four-cylinder with excellent flexibility and is an altogether better thing. The engine note is delightful while the 1.2 sounds a bit like a lawnmower at times. It has the same five-speed manual with that typical French feel of a stick in a bucket of marbles, but changes are accurate and fast. The Allure is the popular choice. Then there’s the $29,595 two-door Sport. The 1.6 is turbocharged here for 115 kilowatts and once you have 2000 rpm it flies. It gets a six-speed manual. Think around 10 litres per

NORTHCOTE \ 404/195 CLARKE STREET

WE LOV E IT

O

pen spaces and geometric angles create private spaces and interesting vistas in a stylish game of hide-and-seek in this contemporary house that pays tribute to last century’s great Modernists. Designed by Robert Simeoni in 2008, it nonetheless owes much to architectural past; lovers of the Heide Museum of Modern Art will no doubt be struck by an atmosphere that calls to mind Heide II, the house designed by David McGlashan in 1963. Northcote may be the address, but there is little to see of inner-city suburb in the quiet no-through street crowded with over-arching trees and private access to the gum-shaded Rubie Thomson Reserve. It is in part this exterior frame that allows the house to play as it does with its surrounds. First impressions are lasting. Its geometric outline is emphasised by the lengthening appearance of the timber it is constructed from and the slim, vertical windows that are a signature design detail. Push open the frosted-glass front door to be immediately met with a visual line running from front to back that takes in everything from the feeling of low, square space to the ethereal streams of light and green viewed through room-defining windows. A lounge is the first stop. Pale, polished oak floors are a beautiful contrast to a long and low bluestone feature cut-out that holds an open fireplace at its centre. High windows running horizontally between the ceiling and a square of white wall space echo that detail. Statement-making windows create a theme that repeats throughout, from a glass-framed courtyard pushing in to the centre of the building that soars upward to the second level, to a horizontal cut-out framing soft greenery above the kitchen’s stainless-steel European cooking appliances, and a glass wall divided by vertical sand-and-cement-rendered posts that allows light to spill into the meals and living area. Even the landscaping here is of an era, where arching bamboo softens washed-out boulders interspersed here and there by the spiky green of Palm Springs-style plantings. There is substance here, as well as style, visible in the exposed steel structural beam that is a feature in the living area, combining with the strength of a square overhang sheltering a section of the bluestone paving at the rear. Marble benchtops are an elegantly practical addition in the kitchen and downstairs powder room that services a home office tucked off to the left of the entry. There is a butler’s pantry in the kitchen, a built-in pale oak cabinet for the television and entertainment system, not to mention a built-in barbecue sequestered under the shade of white cedars and towering bird of paradise. It’s this combination of design and detail that ensures this is a house with a strong family appeal. This modern building makes for a low-maintenance familial existence. The four bedrooms are all together on the second level, where three bedrooms with built-in wardrobes share a chic bathroom with freestanding bath. Thoughtfully placed windows allowing views of treetops give the main bedroom with walk-in wardrobes and en suite a (very chic) cubby-house feel. The street has a personality of its own, too, with a weekly organic food drop and closed-street Christmas parties. \ SARINA LEWIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

Back in 1837, William Rucker was smart to buy 262 acres (106 hectares) of land reaching from Merri Creek across the hill that was to be named after him. However, he did go broke and was forced to rebuild his career as a wine merchant. This top-floor apartment in a boutique development of 30 combines luxury inner-city living with a Rucker’s Hill location that still has all the appeal that savvy Bill saw in it. A great floor plan supplies both bedrooms – one north-facing and one south-facing – with their own terrace and elevated views. The sunny north-facing entry level has an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area with sliding doors to the terrace. The bedroom, with mirrored built-in wardrobes next door, also opens to the terrace, which has great views. The kitchen and bathroom are sleek and modern with luxury finishes such as CaesarStone benches, Smeg appliances and glass splashbacks. The top floor is dedicated to the spoilt occupant of the main bedroom who enjoys a walk-in wardrobe and en suite as well as show-stopping city views. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

On the corner of Amess and Park streets, this proudly maintained circa 1930s residence is moments from bike and walking tracks and close to parks, cafés, shops, schools and trams. It has undergone a kitchen and bathroom renovation yet retains a timeless feel. The single-level brick structure is finished in white render and the front verandah has a terrazzo base. The central hall brings together a freshly-carpeted living room and three double bedrooms, all with good light. Big enough for a family to eat in, the kitchen has a stainless-steel oven and natural-timber cabinetry. The adjoining dining room has floorboards and the tiled bathroom has an integrated-basin vanity unit, a bath and a shower. The back verandah is covered and has a door to a second toilet and a laundry. Sunny and private, the concrete-paved courtyard has double gates allowing off-street parking. The house has two reversecycle heating and cooling units and a gas heater. City views from the street add to its appeal and those based in the CBD could walk to work. \ KAY KEIGHERY

ABBOTSFORD \ 116 CHARLES STREET

Actually new, its outward appearance is a respectful gesture to the streetscape, while inside things are modern through and through. The vendors value the residence’s energy

efficiency and the atypical floor plan, which has been ideal for entertaining and relaxation. They’ve cycled riverside tracks, attended local sports arenas and appreciated freeway proximity for get-out-of-town weekends. Two big bedrooms on ground level have sisal carpet, built-in wardrobes and doors to a shared bathroom. Claiming the second storey, the north-facing main bedroom suite has a walk-in

wardrobe, en suite and roomy study area. Six square windows in the hallway lighten the passage to a central vestibule with built-in timber storage units and a door to a slate-paved courtyard. Also reached via concertina glass doors in the open-plan area, this courtyard has a retractable awning and is secluded, thanks to its internal positioning.

A former corner shop dating back to 1863 makes for an interesting alternative to those enamoured of the single-fronted worker’s cottage style of housing. Photographed for the Victorian division of the National Trust of Australia, the twostorey building is listed as part of a unique visual record of the state’s 19th-century architectural heritage. Yet this is no sacred monument. The tidy space is an easy living option right in the heart of Fitzroy. Step up to the entrance raised on a bluestone foundation and walk in to the open-plan meals area tiled with terracotta and tucked beneath a striking timber staircase. To the left is a sequestered living room while, to the right, is the sunken kitchen that spills out to a brick-paved courtyard. It’s here that you’ll find a sweet outhouse containing the laundry and room for additional storage. Upstairs are the two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes. There are a few convenient extras (such as the split-system air-conditioning in the downstairs living space), but much of the charm arises from its historic beginnings. A true inner-city gem. \ SARINA LEWIS

CARLTON \ 18 MURCHISON STREET Borrowing neighbouring outdoor spaces is the secret to the liveability of Melbourne’s innercity suburbs, and this house built on Murchison Square offers outdoor accessibility in spades. Built in 1905 and renovated in 2008, the house offers a neat package that’s low-maintenance and convenient to the city (backing, as it does, to the Carlton Gardens) and Lygon Street. Its neat brick frontage reflects a general atmosphere of simplicity that recurs throughout interior spaces. A bedroom with built-in-wardrobes and a neighbouring bathroom with a European-style laundry both lie off the central hallway. Past this, the house opens to a living space with bifold doors revealing a side courtyard with timber decking, banquette and greenery. The living room has a gas heater and built-in shelving around space for a wall-mounted television. Step down to the shared meals and kitchen area, where a window that opens on to the side laneway gives the room a European aesthetic. Here, a walk-in nook hides the fridge and the breakfast appliances in a sensible use of space. A mezzanine level upstairs is given over to a secluded bedroom with built-in wardrobes and a Juliet balcony. While interior extras are kept to a minimum, this is a house draws much from its enviable position so close to the city and Carlton’s many charms. \ SARINA LEWIS

Maiden century saves North

Indigenous cricketer makes his mark for Victoria, writes Daniel Paproth

North Melbourne hopes to end its Victorian Premier Cricket season in style after posting 269 against Carlton on day one of the final round. A win to North will end Carlton’s season. The Kangaroos started poorly and were 5/61 and 6/127 before Wyndham Vale import Trent Lawford came to the rescue, posting his maiden district century with 113 off just 85 balls. James Damjanovski (54) and Matthew Love (50) also added solid scores. Nick Austin (5/42) and Tom Smyth (3/98) were the best for the Blues, who are 1/7 at stumps. Lawford dismissed opener Trent McCormick leg before wicket on the first ball of Carlton’s innings. Melbourne University is precariously placed, finishing day one of its match against Essendon with 3/27, chasing 202. Fawad Ahmed did most of the damage for the Students, taking 5/60 from 26.1 overs, sending down 10 maidens. Mark Stafford (3/41) and Greg Kennedy (2/39) were solid in support. Ben Fletcher (7) and Will Shrute (1) are the notout batsmen at the crease for University. Northcote posted one of its best batting performances for the year against Geelong chasing its third win for the season which could see it move off the bottom of the ladder. Dragons opener Ben Peake fell nine runs short of a century. His 91 came off 241 balls over five hours of batting and anchored the innings. Aidan March also scored 58 as Northcote was bowled out for 235 from 85 overs. Geelong was 0/5 at stumps.

en Abbatangelo has had a busy summer. Aside from playing with Victorian Premier Cricket club Northcote, he captained Victoria in the 20th annual Imparja Cup last month. The Imparja Cup, played in Alice Springs from February 17-23, pitted the country’s best indigenous cricketers against each other in a series of Twenty20 matches. Victoria has never won the title but came agonisingly close this year, missing out on the final because of a poor run rate. Victoria, known as Noogal Toengorrt Tani in the tournament, beat eventual champions Queensland in its first match but losses to New South Wales and Western Australia meant Queensland and New South Wales contested the final. Abbatangelo says it was a disappointing end to a promising tournament for the Victorians. “We’d never beaten Queensland before and we beat them quite convincingly,” he says. “But the match against Western Australia was the difference between making the final and not making it. “The tournament is getting bigger and bigger and getting much more recognition, which is good because there are some seriously, seriously good cricketers playing.” Abbatangelo’s indigenous heritage comes

from his mother’s side, part of the Yorta Yorta people around the Shepparton area. He says the Imparja Cup is a highlight on the calendar each year. “Everyone hangs out for it because it’s only once a year,” he says. “It’s an unbelievable trip and a lot of preparation and organisation goes into it. “It’s awesome to go up there and showcase your talents against the other states.” Abbatangelo was also selected for the Cricket Australia under 23 indigenous development squad, which will play matches later this year at CA’s Centre of Excellence in Brisbane. “It’s not quite as extreme as last year when we travelled to India but it’s going to be great,” he says. Abbatangelo also plays with Northcote in premier cricket, though there hasn’t been as much to cheer about for the Dragons in season 2012-13. To date the first XI has only had two wins, but put in one of its best batting performances of the season on Saturday to set up what could be a last-round win. Abbatangelo has drifted between the first and second XI teams and has made 326 runs for the season at an average of 21.73. He scored a century against Dandenong in December last year. “It is an extremely young club but if we can
