Labor’s lies Lab

‘‘Given my background and experience, ence, I thought I would get support and I did but it was a fairly tight tussle. The critical issue will be e Yarra’s representation to the state government, particularly on public transport. We need to lobby about how necessary the Doncaster rail line will be to deal with traffic congestion, social equity, access and the environment. That will be one of the most important items, but so will planning and completion of the North Fitzroy library and the Lourdes childcare project in Abbotsford. I don’t have a political agenda. I can speak freely to either [state] party without them fearing I have an agenda. I would also like to look at enhancing traffic management measures, given the increasing pressures on Alexandra Parade, Princes Street and other roads. Things such as curb extensions and traffic treatments to protect residential infrastructure from the onslaught of traffic could be considered.’’ ARI HATZIS

Brave warriors These brave and dedicated warriors who have saved so many women’s lives through their courage and conviction are owed eternal gratitude for the fairer, more humane society we now have (‘‘Power, corruption and lives’’, NW, October 30).

‘Furious agreement’ over market revamp BY CHRIS HINGSTON NEW Melbourne city councillors are in ‘‘furious agreement’’ that Queen Victoria Market needs big changes. Ideas range from a completely sustainable market to transforming the site into a community hub. Lord mayor Robert Doyle last month said a $100 million investment

in the Queen Victoria Market was a top priority for his second term. He said further discussion with the community, traders and market management had to take place before plans were finalised. Cr Doyle said the council had already been meeting traders, asking them what was working and what could be improved. “We know that

there are problems for some traders not having access to running water, electricity or purpose-built waste disposal systems,” he said. “The Queen Victoria Market is a much-loved icon and we look forward to working with all of its stakeholders to secure the market’s future.’’ Cr Cathy Oke said a redevelopment was an opportunity to make the site

“completely sustainable”, and sustainability could be increased by converting organic waste to energy and by using more solar energy. Cr Jackie Watts said the council was in “furious agreement” that work was necessary but that it was important to remember the site was a functioning fresh food market first. “It’s wellloved, it’s a major tourist attraction

Yarra mayoral role goes to Independent BY ALANA SCHETZER

Mouth-watering recipes for success Budding cooks at North Melbourne Primary School are providing food for thought in a new recipe book. The North Melbourne Table cookbook has been launched by the school in a bid to raise funds for its participation in the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program, an initiative that teaches primary school children how to grow, harvest, prepare and share food. Kitchen specialist Cathy Robinson, pictured with Karolina, Ben, Eloise, Cleo and Jack, has taught the school’s program for four years and cooked up the idea for the book. The book costs $35 and is available from the school and local businesses.

and it needs some TLC,” she said. Cr Ken Ong said he favoured the plan unveiled by his running mates Gary Singer and John So junior during the October election – to transform the site into the “Federation Square of the north”. Cr Stephen Mayne said he would need to be convinced of the business case for a $100 million investment.

A DEAL struck in the past council term to share the Yarra mayoral role between the Greens and ALP appears to be in tatters after independent Jackie Fristacky took the position when she was backed by Labor. In 2008, the Greens and ALP agreed to swap the mayoral position every 12 months but Cr Fristacky won last Monday’s vote with five votes, ahead of Green Sam Gaylard’s four. The Yarra council is made up of three Greens and three ALP councillors, Socialist Stephen Jolly and two independents, councillors Fristacky and Phillip Vlahogiannis. The ALP and Cr Vlahogiannis backed Cr Fristacky. Cr Jolly accused Cr Fristacky and the ALP councillors of ‘‘stitching’’ up a deal that excluded the Greens and himself. He had previously ruled himself out of the role this term. ‘‘Whatever deal they’ve made should be made public, but I’m not

going to hold my breath on that,’’ he said. Greens councillor Amanda Stone, who nominated Cr Gaylard, said she thought the previous agreement had established ‘‘good governance and stability for the community’’. ‘‘I think it will be renegotiated every year, and I just hope there will be no wheeling and dealing because it takes time and energy away from the important work on council,’’ she said. ALP councillor and former mayor Geoff Barbour praised Cr Fristacky, saying she had done well in the role previously in 2005-06 and he was confident she would do so again. ‘‘The preference deal [with the Socialists] put in place before the election certainly played a role in my making a decision. I’m inclined to support those that supported us,’’ Cr Barbour said. Cr Fristacky declined to comment on whether the agreement between the parties would be picked up after her 12-month term as mayor finishes.

THE state government is being urged to change voting laws to reduce the impact of dummy candidates on council elections. Allegations of dummy candidates were rife in Darebin’s election, with several dirt sheets making the rounds in the community. Dummies are candidates who have no serious intention of winning an election. Instead, they use their nomination to distribute preferences to their preferred candidate. Newly re-elected Darebin Greens councillor Trent McCarthy said the impact of dummies could be all but eliminated if how-to-vote cards and/or preference deals were removed from elections. ‘‘Without that, dummies are far less effective,’’ he said. ‘‘You can still have postal voting – just remove the capacity for vote siphoning.’’ Cr McCarthy said he would lobby Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell to amend the Local Govern-

ment Act. Victorian Local Governance Association president Samantha Dunn supported the push to make it harder for dummy candidates to run but added candidates should remain free to form alliances as long as they were based on shared values and were transparent. ‘‘Postal voting makes it more difficult to distinguish between genuine and dummy candidates.’’ Cr Dunn said that apart from strengthening the law, the best way to deter dummy candidates from running was for voters to be informed and engaged with the political process. Ms Powell said she was aware of concerns and complaints arising from the recent elections. ‘‘I will be considering information from a range of organisations, including the Victorian Electoral Commission and Local Government Victoria, before a decision on any review is made,’’ she said. – Alana Schetzer

An initiative that raises funds to help young hospital patients cope with pain has celebrated its 10th anniversary. Established by Princes Hill businesswoman Alex Lowen (pictured with program beneficiary Mo), vivaRCH has raised more than $200,000 for the Royal Children’s Hospital by organising high-profile social events. The money has helped purchase nitrate oxide units to assist children with procedural pain management, as well as ‘‘distraction boxes’’ filled with toys. VivaRCH has also supported The Beaded Journey program, which gives children a bead for every challenge they overcome during treatment. Ms Lowen said vivaRCH funds had helped the hospital provide worldclass programs.

Parks to close for sewer works

Safety focus for Brunswick

BY ALANA SCHETZER

CCTV cameras, street lighting and preventing violence against women are to be discussed at a Brunswick safety forum next week. The community safety meeting follows the rape and murder of 29-yearold Jill Meagher in September. Ms Meagher’s death motivated tens of thousands to take part in two antiviolence marches on Sydney Road. The forum will be hosted by federal Wills MP Kelvin Thomson and Brunswick MP Jane Garrett, with police, local council and community leaders invited to speak. A White Ribbon Australia representative will speak about how the community can help prevent violence against women. Mr Thomson said the the aim was to bring the community together with the “common goal of making Brunswick a safer place’’. “This forum will give people in the community the opportunity to voice any concerns they may have,” he said. The forum will be held at Brunswick Town Hall from 7pm on November 19. – Chris Hingston

PARTS of Alphington Park and Coate Park will be closed until 2015 for a Melbourne Water sewer upgrade that will begin at the end of 2013. The water authority needs to replace or repair a 1.7-kilometre section of sewer, which is almost 100 years old and in poor condition. Melbourne Water project spokesman Phil Corluka said the areas would be used as shaft sites for tunnel-boring equipment. South Alphington Fairfield Civic Association spokesman Jeff Katz said the partial closure would ‘‘certainly’’ be an issue for residents. He said he would await more information about how much space would be blocked before making further comment. Some trees will be removed or trimmed. Mr Corluka said there were plans to avoid heritage-listed trees. ‘‘All tree removal requires council permission and ... any trees and vege-

‘All tree removal requires council permission’ tation that are removed will be replaced with additional trees, shrubs and grasses,’’ he said. Melbourne Water has opened public consultation on the three-year project, which will work on sewers in Alphington and Kew, including Latrobe Golf Club. About 85,000 properties will be affected once construction works begin about 21 metres underground. Mr Corluka said the works to the original brick-lined sewer would ‘‘virtually eliminate’’ the risk of sewer spills and leaks. Two public consultations will be held this month: November 20 at Latrobe Golf Club, Alphington, and November 26 at Fairfield Canoe Club, Fairfield, both from 6pm.

SU SU UP UPP PPLI PP LIE LIED L IE ED D

Time for a disclosure. Metrop reported last weekend that Greens preferences meant Liberal member Oliver Walsh ‘‘got in’’ to Darebin council. Well in our haste, we were wrong. Truth is, the Greens preferenced Walsh ahead of the ALP’s David Redfearn but Walsh had only a one-vote boost from Green Josh Fergeus’ votes. Trent McCarthy explains he preferenced Walsh ahead of Redfearn as the ALP candidate was aligned with Cr Steven Tsitas. He adds that as ALP candidate Andrew Longmire added 839 votes to Walsh’s tally, ALP preferences got Walsh over the line. You decide. We knew this would get feisty.

Red and green for democratic Christmas Five months ago our streets were plastered green and red; it was a kind of democratic Christmas in July. For the duration of the Melbourne state byelection, most of the electorate knew the faces of Greens’ candidate Cathy Oke and Labor’s Jennifer Kanis. But months after the hard-fought poll, two of the Greens’ billboards still stand. The Greens may not have won the seat, but they clearly got a good deal when they bought this ad space. To be fair though, the only out-of-date information is “July 21 Vote”.

Childcare workers take to parliament BY ALANA SCHETZER NEXT year will be a big one for East Brunswick Kindergarten and Childcare. A space that will cater for up to 33 children will open and staff will need to be hired. However, acting childcare co-director Jane Arnett said it could be difficult to attract quality staff because of low wages for graduates and even experienced workers. ‘‘If early childhood workers could get more money, it could attract a better quality of worker. Graduates get just $18 an hour and a person who’s worked for 10 years could get the same,’’ she says. ‘‘It’s a very poorly paid industry.’’ Ms Arnett will be among hundreds, if not thousands, of childcare workers and parents at a rally at Parliament House on Saturday, November 17, as part of a national campaign calling on the federal government to increase wages. United Voice Victorian secretary Jess Walsh said up to a third of childcare workers left the

sector annually because of low wages. She said this high level of turnover affected children’s wellbeing because they became attached to their carers. “Miserably low wages are forcing [staff] to abandon the jobs they love and that’s incredibly distressing to children when they are torn away from the educators they have come to love and trust,’’ Ms Walsh said. The federal government recently introduced reforms to the sector, including increasing staff-to-child ratios, tougher qualification requirements and a rating system for childcare centres across the country. Kay Marchant, who works at Annie Dennis Children’s Centre in Northcote, said the reforms were welcomed but would be difficult to maintain without the resources to pay for them. ‘‘And without better training for those people, it will not work. The fees will continue to go up and the quality of the people coming out of the training providers will continue to get worse,’’ she said. VB5064

Assault app to empower users BY BEAU DONELLY

A new Arena thrills director

A FREE app that uses GPS technology to report sexual assaults anonymously will be up and running early next year. The Centre Against Sexual Assault is commissioning the app to help lower barriers for assaulted women who don’t want to report incidents. The head of CASA’s south-east branch, Carolyn Worth, said the agency was developing the app to record patterns of crime against women. The app will allow users to anonymously post details about threatening sexual behaviour, including the time and place incidents occurred and descriptions of alleged offenders. The data collected will be given to police. Ms Worth said the app would be the first of its kind in Australia. The idea to develop it came about after the death of 29-year-old Brunswick

North Melbourne’s Arena Theatre Company’s new artistic director, Christian Leavesley (pictured), is aiming to build on the company’s tradition for the daring by bringing on board his own visions. Arena is known for its adventurous productions targeted at young audiences. ‘‘One of the most exciting things about Arena is its unflinching commitment to creating daring work for young audiences, and the ambitious scale on which ideas are realised,’’ he says. ‘‘I look forward to inviting Arena’s audience inside an entirely new array of places, both literally and imaginatively.’’ Departing artistic director Chris Kohn has stepped down from the role held for the past four years. Leavesley officially joined the company on November 5.

Moorabbin Sexual Offences and Child Abuse Investigation Team Detective Sergeant Matt Campbell said: “Any app that provides coordinates would certainly assist us.” Ms Worth said the app was about ‘‘empowering women, not pulling up a list of who lives where”.

Pokies probe ‘too costly’ for councils BY ALANA SCHETZER LOCAL governments want more information about the potential impact of poker machines when deciding whether or not to grant a permit for more machines to a hotel or club, a new report states. The Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission released its draft inquiry into problem gambling late last month. It states local governments find the cost of collecting evidence and data prohibitive. The draft report also stated the north west metro region had the highest rate of problem gambling in the state, at 1.2 per cent of the population. In its submission, Moreland council said the system forced the burden of proof onto councils about whether or not poker machines would be harmful to the community. Applications for electronic gaming machines are determined under planning laws, and councils have 30 days to make a

decision. The Victorian Local Governance Association has criticised the timeline as too short. VLGA president Samantha Dunn said the timeline made it ‘‘very difficult’’ for councils to gather detailed evidence to support a case against additional machines. ‘‘We support the need for more accurate cost estimates to better understand the impacts of problem gambling,’’ she said. Victorian InterChurch Gambling Taskforce chairman Mark Zirnsak said it should not be a council’s responsibility to gather evidence about the socio-economic effect of additional poker machines. ‘‘Instead the research should be funded by the Victorian government, as they collect the pokie taxes,’’ Dr Zirnsak said. He said gaming taxes should be used to research the effects of poker machines on communities and how to reduce harm. The VCEC draft report acknowledged the gaps in data currently available and stated it was an issue that required further research. Submissions close November 16.

Yarra City Council, at its meeting on 5 November 2012, having regard to the provisions of the Local Government Act 1989 (The Act), the review of allowance amounts by the Minister for Local Government and the principles considered by the Local Government (Councillor Remuneration Review) Panel, proposed the following allowances for the 2012/2013 Council year (plus an additional 9% being an amount equivalent to the Superannuation Guarantee Levy):

COVERSTORY

Drawn to life Beci Orpin is like a rock star of the Melbourne design and craft scene. And she’s just getting started. By Alana Schetzer

eci Orpin is like a pixie. With a Beatlesstyle mop-top and dressed in a blue and white skater-style dress, she looks like one of the characters she regularly creates – feminine, but not girly. ‘‘It’s a nostalgic kind of feel,’’ she says of the characters she brings to life in print, on fabric and elsewhere. Orpin, 39, has packed half-a-dozen careers into the 15 years since she graduated from RMIT with a degree in textile design. First and foremost, she says, she is a graphic designer, but her resume also includes fashion designer, art director, artist, craft stall-holder and illustrator. Now she can add another – author. Hardie Grant has just published her first book, the DIY manual Find and Keep. It’s as much a coffee table hardcover as it is a practical guide to making your own crafts. For Orpin’s devoted followers – and there are many – it’s just what they’ve been waiting for. She is like a rock star of the Melbourne design and craft movement; her name spoken with reverence by those who can’t get enough of what she creates. But for the woman herself, the book is the result of an intense three-month process. ‘‘Hardie Grant approached me and I, of course, jumped at the chance but I wasn’t sure what kind of book I would do, so we sat down over a few meetings and worked out ideas,’’ she says, her voice at times barely above a whisper. ‘‘But when I actually sat down to do it, it came really naturally to me and it made total sense. I really, really loved doing it. I really love design being accessible and trying new things, and I think this encourages that. A lot of the photos in the book are mine - I kind of like it that way, finding myself completely involved in something, working intensely.’’ The book features 26 projects including pompoms and faux lead lighting and hundreds of pages of whimsical images, many taken inside her home. Orpin lives in Brunswick West with her husband Raph, 36, who runs Beatbox Kitchen and Taco Truck, and their two sons, Tyke, 9, and Ari, 5. Their house, a two-storey brick building opposite a lush green park, is both home and workplace for Orpin. Her cosy studio, filled with hundreds of books and trinkets, is the first room you enter off the street. ‘‘We brought the house five years ago,” says Orpin. “When we found it, we thought it was great because it was quite big, but it wouldn’t suit a lot of other people, with this room [her studio] out in the front. But when we saw it, I knew it was what we were looking for.’’ Her studio is a physical manifestation of Orpin herself, full of ideas, projects mid-completion and inspiration pinned to every available wall or desk

B

space. Hundreds, possibly thousands, of magazines are stacked under her large corner desk, children’s books are crammed on shelves, and everywhere are examples of many of the symbols she uses in her work – rainbows, mushrooms, little dolls. It’s at once chaotic and delightful to take in. Orpin laughs when I comment on the visual impact of her studio; her house upstairs is decorated in the same manner. She predicts her sons will grow up to be minimalists.

Even if you don’t know Orpin’s name, chances are you will have seen her work. Among her many clients are beauty brands Bloom and Kit, Mount Franklin water, fashion labels Mambo and Gorman, and Mercedes-Benz. Her signature style is particularly evident in the Gorman and Kit campaigns. Colour is Orpin’s hallmark. It’s used boldly and without fear. ‘‘I could happily just play with colour – I think in Australia, people can be quite conservative when it comes to colour,’’ she says. Orpin’s distinctive design style has been labelled ‘‘kooky’’, ‘‘quirky’’ and ‘‘folksy’’. But when asked how she would describe it herself, she pauses. ‘‘I just followed the things I was really interested in,’’ she says after a moment. “I guess I’ve been influenced by nostalgia and children’s books. Oh, and I was really, really, really obsessed with Japan from a young age. I really don’t think I consciously developed a style – it was really just what kind of evolved.’’ Much like her work, Orpin’s journey to her career was colourful. She was accepted into RMIT’s acclaimed fashion design school straight out of high school, but sensing it wasn’t right for her, she dropped out after one semester. She then spent the next two years ‘‘messing about’’. ‘‘I just partied, really. I went to a whole lot of raves and things like that and moved out of home and worked part-time. But I drew the whole time,” she says. ‘‘I got a whole lot of stuff out of my system, you know, from being a teenager and moving into adulthood. And that’s when I started my [textile design] course and everything clicked.’’ She says it paid to take her time to find her real calling. ‘‘I would recommend doing that unless you’re very focused and you know what you want to do, but not many people do when they leave high school.’’ Melbourne is becoming increasingly well known for its thriving design and craft community; more and more markets are opening to satisfy the hunger for homemade jewellery, dresses, cushions and accessories. And in the inner north, in paricular, craft has

become part of the cultural landscape , with yarn bombing and pop-up vintage markets almost commonplace. Orpin, of course, is right in the thick of it. Next month she’ll have a stall at the Big Design Market at the Exhibition Building, selling children’s T-shirts and assorted hand-crafted knick-knacks. She says the creative milieu of the inner north is extremely conducive to her work. Although she travels on occasion, she wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. ‘‘It’s big enough to have lots of things going on but small enough to still know everyone,” she says. “There are many, many, many like-minded people around.’’ Of course, a thriving design community means more competition, but Orpin isn’t fazed. While she’s conscious of what other designers are doing, she says she just tries to do what she enjoys and inject her own personality and style into it. ‘‘There’s lots of projects that lots of people will have done before,’’ she says of the craft projects in Find and Keep. ‘‘There’s a thousand tutorials around, but this is my take on it. It is quite tricky but I think if you think a bit harder about it, you can come up with what’s your own.’’

Despite the creativity all around her, Orpin admits she still gets sucked into the temptation of the internet. A massive iMac flat screen is her ticket to myriad worlds, including her new favourite toy, Pinterest. ‘‘I’m really bad. I could just look through this for hours and hours,’’ she says, scrolling her mouse down the screen. ‘‘But I definitely try and do other things. I’ll go and see exhibitions and go to vintage markets and things like that.’’ Collaborations are central to Orpin’s future plans. Glancing around her studio, she admits she feels increasingly lonely working on her own within the same four walls. Furniture design and animation are on her wish list and she’s definitely open to doing another book, she says. A children’s book – her lifelong inspiration – is on the cards and she’s close to signing the contract. ‘‘My parents were really selective and encouraging in all the books they gave me growing up, so the thought I could do that for someone else is pretty awesome,’’ she says. As Orpin is an illustrator, not a writer, she says she wants her first children’s book to be visually based. The writing, she says, she will build up to. Which is not unlike the way she started all those years ago. ■ Big Design Market, Royal Exhibition Building December 7–9. Details: visit thebigdesignmarket.com.

DARREN JAMES

The legendary Argus building is at the heart of a new beat. By Chris Hingston

tarr Guzman knows secrets can be hard to keep. Guzman, of Richmond-based producers Marksthespot, is part of a team working to reclaim the boarded-up Argus building for Melbourne Music Week. Last week it was revealed the building, at the corner of Elizabeth and La Trobe streets, is the mystery location called Where?House. Floors of the derelict building are being transformed to serve as a cultural and musical hub for the festival. The location of Where?House was intended to be a more firmly kept secret, much like Melbourne’s early rave scene, where venues were discovered the night of the event. Construction is almost complete and sections of the old Argus site are ready for performances. Parts of the building have been converted for a range of purposes, including a retro market, music workshops and a sonic garden listening post. Rumour and curiosity led to the early reveal, but Guzman (pictured) is not

disappointed. She says the announcement has sparked speculation over what it might be like inside the former newspaper building. She remains tight-lipped. Guzman and her Marksthespot partner Kevin Karlberg have been working on the project for almost a year. The duo brought light-and-sound installation KUBIK to Birrarung Marr for last year’s Melbourne Music Week. Guzman says the Where?House project to revive the Argus is much more ambitious. “It’s such a beloved space in Melbourne. People just treasure that building. It’s so exciting to be able to invite people back into it. The idea behind the location was to take people on a journey of discovery. “To activate this half-demolished, derelict building – it is unthinkable, almost unfathomable. It is unconventional, but that’s what we like to do.” ■ The Argus building will open as Where?House every day from from November 16 to 24. Details: visit where-house.com.au.

hanging meats and toy plastic cows. Ball puns are omnipresent – and patrons add their own, finding them funnier with each glass of wine from a list that features a breezy collection of Australian and Italian varietals, a cool grappa selection, plus beers, ciders and spirits. The service is fun too, with that “we work in a new, trendy place and we are thrilled to be here vibe” – and the honest enthusiasm is catching. The menu, inspired by Bruno’s northernItalian family’s recipes, features a selection of cured meats and artisan cheeses, plus balls made from pork, beef, chicken, fish and vegetables. Brendon Jones (ex-Hotel Spencer) is working marvels with mince. Each plate of balls features three 60-gram spheres; the beef made of pasture-fed O’Connor Black Angus from Gippsland, the market fish and vegetable varieties vary. Choose your balls and sauce – Italian tomato, creamy white, or pesto. Then add something for them to sit on – potato smash,

homemade pasta sheets, Italian beans, polenta or the day’s green-vegetable selection. Chicken balls, made from free-range Lilydale chicken, retain superb texture and are blended with pistachios, muscatels and parmesan. Served with the pesto salsa verde, they were dense and satisfying, needing no accompaniment, but could have had a little more of the well-made, bright sauce. Byron Bay Kurobuta pork balls were given finesse with fennel, sage and orange and worked divinely with our choice of creamy polenta and white sauce. With this sort of menu carte blanche you are left wondering what other combinations would work (or what you’d try next time). Dessert sticks to the theme with whoopie macs – ice-cream orbs sandwiched between excellent macarons. But it’s the balls, all gluten-free and without padding such as onion, that shine – as expected in a venue using this moniker. ■

lmost everything at The Meatball & Wine Bar is likeable – from the balls to the wine, the staff and the sultry, modurban space. So I’m going to start with a gripe. Scrupulously considered food based around fabulous produce should not be served with bog-standard bread. Particularly fine handcrafted charcuterie and cheese served with said bland, dried out focaccia as its primary accompaniment. Artisan bread suppliers of Melbourne, pick up the phone. Better to talk about the balls, and all. The Meatball & Wine Bar is the first restaurant for director Matteo Bruno, who has shrewdly identified an unexplored niche in Melbourne’s dining scene (who knew there was one?). Meatball bars could yet pop up like Mexican cantinas. The space is a cross between that Melbourne glossy-magazine look and a New York dinercum-bar – although the brief was apparently a New York butchery. There are posters of meat cuts on the wall and an oddball, but cute, installation featuring

Alphington sewer replacement project Community information sessions

Melbourne Water is holding community information sessions about the upcoming Alphington sewer replacement project. Residents are welcome to drop by to learn more about the project, view displays, meet members of the project team and ask questions about the works.

Date

Time

Location

Tuesday, 20 Nov

6pm to 8pm

Latrobe Golf Club, Farm Road, Alphington

Monday, 26 Nov

6pm to 8pm

Fairfield Canoe Club, 9 The Esplanade, Fairfield

Sections of the old sewers must be replaced due to age, deterioration and to ensure adequate capacity for future urban growth in our northern suburbs. This essential work will reduce the risk of future maintenance issues which can be costly and disruptive to the community. It will also help protect the environment by minimising the likelihood of sewage spills. Construction of the new sewer is expected to commence late 2013 and will take approximately three years to complete. Constructing the new sewer will involve trenching and tunnelling under roads, some homes, Amcor, Latrobe Golf Club car park and occupying pockets of local parks and open space. Melbourne Water is committed to keeping the community informed about the project and will be seeking ongoing feedback from local residents to help us minimise any disruptions.

A central target is American Idol – here rebranded American Superstar – where talentless drones are propelled to stardom because their audience of 32 million doesn’t know any better.

This new US drama series looks and feels like great television. Specifically, it looks and feels like a mix of Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire. The ’50s glamour is artfully exaggerated, the gangsters play by

old-school rules, and the stylised dialogue makes the viewer work to figure out exactly what is going on. It’s all very impressive, if a little empty. The first episode is oddly bereft of surprises, playing out as if it hopes to meet, rather than subvert, any expectations. Nonetheless, the setting is alluring and the characters engaging. It might be worth giving the series time to reveal its promised magic.

Is status worth the pricetag? etag?

ROD EASDOWN BEHIND THE WHEEL aying a premium for a European brand may make sense to some people but I just can’t see it. Some time ago I spent a week in a pretty basic hatch from a prestige European brand that cost about $37,000 and I was, well, underwhelmed. Now I’ve just handed back a Hyundai i30 with everything that opens and shuts that cost $1000 less and I can’t figure why anyone would take the European offering. Of course, it’s a matter of status. A Hyundai badge has none. But when you’re getting more room (especially in the back seat), navigation, leather, proximity key, seat heaters, sunroof, pretty good audio system and full-size spare tyre on a matching alloy wheel, not to mention a beautifully flexible little diesel motor that stretches out a litre of fuel very nicely, you have to take stock. You’ve got to think there are lots of i30 Premium owners with smiles on their faces, while those who bought into the expensive European brands must tire of justifying their purchase to their families, friends and, indeed, themselves. The Hyundai drives comfortably, with good noise levels, and while the ride does tend to firmness, the handling is quite acceptable. Visibility is good when you’re backing up and there’s a reversing camera calibrated for parking distances. The gallant little diesel could never be described as fast but it sure is enthusiastic, to the point where it feels quick as it wind. And

t’s often said that one’s journey is as important as the destination. In residence for 26 years, vendors Doris and Michael Pearse agree that their home has been a work in progress throughout most of this time. Inspiration was derived from status quo and action followed in service. Two kids and almost three decades later, they’ve matured along with the property. When the Pearse’s purchased, the house was in desperate need of TLC. The micro-plan was

to renovate and use the place as a steppingstone investment en route to leafier eastern suburbs. Little did they know that their enclave of inner-city living would flourish in such cosmopolitan fashion and deliver the goods for every stage of young-family life. The children went to Raleigh Street Childcare Centre, then Batman Park Kinder, North Fitzroy Primary School and on to the coveted Northcote High School, for which the property is zoned. Nearby parks, swimming pool, skate park and bike tracks have been tried and tested. With the kids now young adults, they’ve chosen not to drive in favour of making use of the excellent public transport available.

facade is picturesque. Mauve roses by the front gate give scented welcome. There are two bedrooms on ground level and another two in the upstairs extension. Main is a matter of preference. Both bedrooms on ground level are spacious and have built-in wardrobes and open fireplaces. The upstairs options forego fireplaces for leafy views. The ground floor study has a return desk and is spacious enough for two to work side by side. Living and dining areas are interconnected, with the living end featuring a fireplace between full height storage units. The dining end comes to glazed conclusion looking over rear deck and wisteria-entwined pergola. The kitchen zone has been made over a couple of times, most recently two years ago. As a keen cook who doesn’t care to be left out of the action, Doris’s design brief was to forego cupboards for the sake of drawers, make all surfaces thoroughly workable and keep

glazing to the terrace at a maximum. Michael chipped in instating the cabinetry, and it’s due to his ingenuity that the pantry door is fully retractable, allowing unobstructed access to all appliances. Doris refers to her new double wall ovens as “the twins” and values how they’ve made large scale catering easier. The backyard is a great set up for sociable types. Most of it is paved, so foot traffic is no problem. About 120 people gathered here to celebrate the couple’s shared 50th birthday party. Bordering gardens are floral, fragrant and fruitful; a water feature adds soundscape and the fairy-light chandeliers suspended on cross-wires are a delightful touch. Originally a stable, the shed is huge and has rendered Michael the envy of his male neighbours. Lasting friendships have been forged with the neighbours. “We’ll be coming back for the annual street party, and we know we will always be welcome,” says Doris. ■

Fitzroy player Alex Turlea and club president John KIng at Merri Park

Pitch battle Four players down, Fitzroy is bruised but not broken. By Daniel Paproth n exodus of players over winter has resulted in a sluggish start to the Victorian Summer League baseball season for Fitzroy. Established in 1889 – making it older than hundreds of football and cricket clubs around the state – Fitzroy’s senior men’s team has been hampered by the loss of four key players. American import Matt Kemp, up-and-coming pitcher Errol Whinnen and club stalwarts Jamie

A w

Lethborg and Brock Pawley have all left the club, either going overseas or taking a break from the game. “And they were all pitchers, every one of them,” laments president John King. But King, 53, who has been around the club since he started playing at 14, bears no ill will towards the four players. “It’s a funny sport, baseball,” he says. “Here in Victoria you can play for 12 months a year,

and Jamie and Brock played all the way through juniors with us so they just needed a break.” King says the club decided “to try and battle on” without them, but seven rounds into the division two season, they could do with more recruits. Luckily, they recently picked up Adam Low, an American here on a holiday who played for Melbourne last year. After a poor start to the season, they have now won three games – getting home against Newport at the weekend – while their four losses have been narrow. “We’ve lost three games we should have won. We were ahead going into the last inning in three of the four games and gave up the runs,” King says. “In reality, we could be three wins and two losses. We just didn’t have the pitching to come in and finish off the job.” Fitzroy was relegated from division one for this season but King says it is not the end of the world. “Division one baseball in Victoria is the toughest domestic competition in Australia,” he says. “You play 33 games, midweek games, Saturdays, Sundays – it’s very tough. Nothing in the country comes near it. We lost nine games by one run. If we had won two of those we would have stayed up, but that’s the way it goes.” King remains hopeful the club can turn its fortunes around. A few wins will have it back in finals contention. But even if it misses out this season, it’s a hiccup for a team with such an illustrious history. There aren’t many other baseball clubs in the country that can boast an Australian Test cricket opening batsman as alumni. “Bill Ponsford played for us back in the day,” says King. “He wasn’t a footballer, so he played baseball for us in the winter to keep his eye in for cricket.” ■

Ahmed sets up Melbourne Uni Melbourne Uni is poised for its third win of the season over Hawthorn-Monash Uni this weekend. Hawthorn started well, and were 1/144 before losing nine wickets for 56 to be all out for 200 as Fawad Ahmed took 5/68. Melbourne Uni lost three wickets facing out 25 overs, but reached 78, meaning the final seven wickets need score only 123 for victory. Carlton set itself up well against unbeaten Dandenong by making 258. Struggling at 2/4, Carlton’s middle order and lower rallied. Tim Welsford topscored with 65 while number 11 Ryan Sidebottom made 33. Dandy faced three overs to be 0/11. North Melbourne has a massive task ahead against Camberwell Magpies, who are 9/314 after winning the toss and batting. Brendan Drew made 91 and six other players got starts. Fitzroy-Doncaster are well-placed to beat Casey-South Melbourne after sending them in to bat and bowling them out for 164 by the 76th over. Facing 12 overs in reply, Fitzroy lost two wickets for 55 to set up a shot at the six points. Richmond has already beaten Northcote and will try for outright victory. Northcote won the toss and batted first but was bowled out for 66 as Australian cricketer Cameron White took 5/13 and former Victorian pace bowler Allan Wise took 3/10. Richmond is 4/186 in reply.
