police report into equality an optimistic first step: african-australians A community ambassador at the centre of a civil case over alleged racial profiling of African-Australian men has welcomed a landmark report aimed at improving strained relations between Victorian police and African youth. But Maki Issa, one of six men involved in the racial profiling case, said interactions between police and African youth in the west remained tense despite significant inroads. The men, who were teenagers at the time, say they were assaulted by police and were often stopped, questioned and searched because they were black. Mr Issa’s comments come in the wake of the Victoria Police Equality is not the Same report, a three-year plan aimed at reducing racial profiling. The report is the result of a court settlement reached between police and SX6096677-a8Sep©FCNVIC

Mr Issa said implementing the recommendations of the report were a step towards addressing the issue of racial profiling. “It is an optimistic first step that will ensure transparency and hopefully a reduction in profiling,” he said. “While the relationship between the [police] force and youth has improved in some areas, there are still youth coming to me saying they are facing unfair treatment or that they feel targeted and intimidated by the police.” Mr Issa added that he wanted to see the words “discrimination” and “racism” incorporated more intensely in the report. Legal Centre chief executive officer Anthony Kelly said the report showed that Victoria Police had listened to the views of the community and acknowledged the validity of their concerns. “The accountability measures, data monitoring and receipting, if

Hobsons Bay councillor and former mayor Tony Briffa has resigned after six years, citing a desire to focus on family and international human rights campaigning, and to work as an aerospace engineer. Former mayor Michael Raffoul is tipped to replace Cr Briffa in a countback, which will be conducted by the Victorian Electoral Commission at 9.30am on March 13. “After getting married last year, I would like to spend more time with my family but also take time to focus on my human rights work and restart the career I put on hold while devoting my energy to the council and local community,” said Cr Briffa, who previously convened the residents’ association. “It’s now the time, I think, to focus on just having a family life, enjoying time with [spouse] Manja and focusing on my career.

New Hobsons Bay councillor Carl Marsich says that supporting Toyota workers is the biggest immediate challenge facing the municipality. Last Thursday’s countback of votes by the Victorian Electoral Commission saw Cr Marsich elected with an absolute majority of 3098 votes after 4748 ballot papers were distributed. He replaces Luba Grigorovitch in Wetlands ward, which covers the suburbs of Altona Meadows, Seabrook and Laverton. Ms Grigorovitch resigned to become the first woman and youngest person to take the helm of Victoria’s Rail, Tram and Bus Union. The pair had been running mates in the council election. Cr Marsich, an occupational health and safety officer in the Community Public Sector Union, has twice served as mayor and was first elected to the council in 1996. “I suppose one of the most immediate circumstances we face at the moment will be the impending closure of Toyota in two or three years, which is certainly going to have a massive impact on our local community,” he said. “I want to ensure that we’re on the front foot in regards to whatever we can do from the council perspective to deal with the fallout coming out of that decision.” \ GD 10004738-03-a5Feb©MMP

YARRAVILLE

Parents have vowed to keep pressure on VicRoads and the state government after the agency rejected installing flashing 40km/h speed zone lights on a busy Yarraville truck route. Narelle Wilson said the decision to reject the lights, revealed by the Weekly last month, was a failure of common sense. “The fact we have three schools on a major truck route would surely make it appropriate; anyone who spent time at the crossing would see that it was sensible,” she said. “I know lots of parents are concerned about the situation ... most parents have seen trucks passing through red lights. “It would make a big difference in terms of speed.” VicRoads regional director Patricia Liew said a working group was formed last year to consider short and medium-term options for truck movements and their impacts in the inner west. The group draws together the heads of VicRoads, EPA Victoria, Department of Health and City of Maribyrnong. “On February 27, they will host the first of several community consultation sessions to discuss these complex problems... all residents

Mr Mulder said the state government took the issue of road safety very seriously. VicRoads also carried out a survey in

mid-December determining where trucks travelling through the inner-west were beginning and ending their journeys. The results are expected to be available to the public by mid-year. \ BM » The community meeting will be at 5-7.30pm, February 27, at Maribyrnong Town Hall

A five-month blitz has scrubbed almost 13,000 square metres of illegal graffiti from Maribyrnong walls. But the council faces an uphill battle in its fight to rid the city of its “bad look”, according to mayor Grant Miles, who said a “staggering amount of illegal graffiti” was removed.

doctor stabbed at hospital Medical staff and visitors helped drag an injured neurosurgeon from an armed man after he was stabbed at the Western Hospital in Footscray on Tuesday morning. Police were called to the hospital about 8.30am to find a man armed with a knife in the foyer of the hospital. Dr Michael Wong, 43, had been stabbed multiple times and was in a serious but stable condition ahead of surgery. No one else was injured in the attack. A 48-year-old Sunshine North man was charged with attempted murder and police are reviewing footage of the attack on closed circuit television.

people power triumphs childcare

Parents cried tears of joy last Tuesday after Hobsons Bay council unanimously voted not to outsource Altona Meadows and Altona North early learning centres. More than 100 parents, children and Australian Services Union (ASU) representatives had rallied in front of the council chamber to support the centres, which provide childcare for more than 200 children.

ASU Victorian and Tasmanian branch secretary Brian Parkinson said the council had been threatened with a Federal Court injunction on the eve of last week’s meeting. In December, 80 childcare staff had been told they had to reapply for their jobs. A petition against the outsourcing was signed by more than 600 people.

Comedy fans can enjoy a behind-the-scenes peek at the Australian comedy scene thanks to a new book by Yarraville comedian and author Rusty Berther. From over-zealous hecklers to colourful encounters with bikies, the less glamorous side of show business is there, warts and all. The Scared Weird Little Guys performer explains that the title What, and give up showbiz? is the punchline to a joke about the less glamorous side of the performing life. “You can do lots of bad, weird, crappy things in showbiz, but you’re still in showbiz,” he said. The idea for the book developed during the countless hours Berther spent sitting around back stage, when everyone starts sharing stories about bad gigs or weird situations. “I interviewed over 40 comedians and a few musicians and about a third of the book comes from my own experiences,” Berther said. Performers interviewed for the book include Wil Anderson, Adam Hills, Dave O’Neill, Julia Morris, Rod Quantock, Georgina McEncroe, Lawrence Mooney and Corinne Grant. The book will be launched by Dave O’Neil at the Sun Theatre, Yarraville, at 6 tonight,

all-in call for vaccine IMMUNISATION

Ninety-five per cent of children living in Hobsons Bay and Maribyrnong will need to be immunised by the time they start school under a new state government push to boost the state’s vaccination rates. The government believes the best way to protect children from preventable diseases is to lift Victoria’s average vaccination rates from 93 per cent to 95 per cent. Latest government figures reveal that as of December last year, 93.65 per cent of five-year-olds in Hobsons Bay were fully immunised, while 93.1 per cent of children starting school in Maribyrnong had received all their vaccinations. Health Minister David Davis said immunisations were the best defence against illness and death from vaccine-preventable diseases. “Starting school means that children are in contact with a larger number of people, which can expose them to a range of potentially dangerous diseases, so making sure they are fully immunised is the best protection we can give them,” he said. South Western Melbourne Medicare Local chief executive Linda Kensington

said some children went unimmunised because their parents were busy and forgot to attend appointments, while others did not understand when their children were meant to be vaccinated. She said some parents were reluctant to vaccinate their children, believing immunisations would harm them. Western suburbs mum Tasha David said parents had the right to chose whether or not they vaccinated their children. The mother of eight children, who is a member of an anti-immunisation group, vaccinated her six eldest children but chose not to immunise the other two. Ms David said she decided not to vaccinate her two youngest children after those who had been vaccinated developed behavioural and learning problems. “It was a clear-cut decision for us. The two who are unvaccinated are completely healthy,” she said. “It was definitely the right decision for my family.” Australian Academy of Science president Suzanne Cory urged parents to base their decisions on the best scientific evidence available. Professor Cory said studies had ruled out links between vaccinations and health problems, such as autism. \ LAURA LITTLE

georgia’s watery frolics a recipe for pure happiness Kensington

The happiest time of the week for Georgia Hayes is when she is able to enjoy the sublime freedom of swimming. Her weekly swimming lessons are a milestone for the Kingsville 13-year-old, who has autism and an intellectual impairment. For six years Georgia has taken part in weekly one-on-one lessons held by the YMCA at the Kensington Community Recreation Centre. Her father, Brian, has dubbed it the “half-an-hour of happiness”. “Her anxiety levels go down to almost zero and the freedom of the water means she doesn’t have to worry about the sensory stuff,” he said. “It’s probably the most relaxed half-an-hour in her week. I just have to say we’re going swimming and she’s happy.” Mr Hayes said the staff at the centre had made all the difference for Georgia, who these days spends 80 per cent of her lessons diving under water. “She is just gorgeous to watch,” he said. “She spends a lot of the time doing breast-stroke and loves performing handstands for everybody. “She has had 12 different teachers in the

Mr Hayes says sleep for the family is regularly compromised and the exhaustion and struggles of caring for a child with special needs often takes a heavy toll. Despite having a strong family and support network, respite care for Georgia does not happen often enough. “It’s important that more people understand disability and aren’t afraid or turn away,” Mr Hayes said. “It’s also a relief for us to know that “she is just gorgeous to Georgia has learned how to be safe around water.” watch” On March 2, the YMCA will hold a swimathon at the Kensington Community Recreation Centre to raise money for programs that provide swimming lessons for children who are disabled, indigenous, disadvantaged or of migrant or refugee backgrounds. They embody four groups that are grossly over-represented in Victoria’s drowning statistics.

Stan and Margaret Woolard, from Newcomb in Geelong, are in their late 70s. They travel Australia in their Mercedes Sprinter motorhome. During 30 years with Victoria Police, Stan avidly read about the outback. So when he retired, he and Margaret decided to see some far-flung places themselves. On their first trip they travelled for 10 months, nicknaming that adventure the “Australia All Over” tour. “We travelled 26,500 kilometres,” he says. “One night I remember stopping for dinner at the now defunct old-style Darwin Hotel. Margaret and I sat outside surrounded by palm trees and had a nice bottle of wine.” In September, the Woolards travelled to Mildura, Hay and Griffith in NSW and then north-east to Queensland. On the way home, they stopped at Burren Junction to enjoy the hot water springs and crossed country Victoria to Geelong. “Travelling in this way has enabled us to see

MOTORING \ ron hammerton drives the lexus IS 300h f sport

H

aving given rival Mercedes-Benz a 100-year head-start in the luxury car business, Lexus leapt out of the starting blocks like, well, a tortoise in 1989. Lexus founder Eiji Toyoda knew from his background as president of Toyota that brand reputation is earned, not bought. He put his fledgling prestige car division on the sure and steady path to success, one flawless paint job at a time. Lexus is still a work in progress, gradually filling its model line-up from the original one – the LS limousine – to nine passenger-car model lines today. Lexus made it hard for itself by eschewing “dirty” diesel engines and turbos, instead embracing petrol-electric hybrids and normally aspirated petrol engines. Don’t hold your breath for a Lexus diesel any time soon and the first turbo is still in the pipeline, but at least you can now buy a fuel-efficient hybrid version of Lexus’ top-selling model, the mid-sized IS, in the new third generation. The IS 300h, as the hybrid variant of Lexus’ BMW 3 Series competitor is called, sits in the middle of the IS range, between the 2.5-litre V6 IS 250 and flagship 3.5-litre V6 IS 350. The 300h uses a combination of 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor, driving the rear wheels via a fancy continuously variable transmission. Like other hybrids in the Toyota/Lexus armoury, the IS 300h recoups electricity generated under braking and stores it in a battery – in this case under the back of the

car – and draws on it under acceleration to cut fuel consumption. Combined, these motors deliver 164 kilowatts of power and 221 newton metres of torque. Of course, hybrid technology is all about fuel savings, and Lexus claims its contender can achieve 4.9 litres per 100 kilometres on the official combined fuel consumption test. As per our usual experience, this does not translate to the real world but something

in the high 5.0s is possible. Like some other Lexus/Toyota hybrids, the IS 300h can provide a certain amount of electric-only driving, but only at under 40km/h for a short distance. The price premium for the privilege of electric assistance is $3000 above the petrol-only IS 250, but the 300h is more than $6000 cheaper than the more powerful IS 350, which starts at $65,000 (plus on-road costs).

The IS 300h is available in two specifications – Luxury and F Sport – with the latter adding touches such as a unique front grille treatment, an extra Sport+ driving mode with active dampers and bigger 18-inch alloy wheels with low-profile tyres. Our major complaint with the 300h would be the low-level whine from the electric power train and its CVT transmission, which is exacerbated by the otherwise super-quiet cabin experience. But we have plenty of bouquets, too, starting with the wonderful ergonomics for the driver. Standard gear includes keyless smart entry, heated and ventilated seats, digital radio and, on F Sport variants, an upmarket Mark Levinson audio. An all-new body gains a stretched wheelbase, which in turn has enhanced rear leg room. We will finish on two of our favourite aspects of the new IS – its glorious road manners and world-beating fit and finish. For the first time, Lexus has truly matched the Germans in steering and handling, making the IS a joy to drive. Add the wonderful driving position, classy fat steering wheel and supportive seats, and the IS puts Munich, Stuttgart and Ingolstadt on notice. With unmatched quality backed by a four-year warranty, the IS must be on every mid-sized luxury car buyer’s list. Yep, the tortoise is breathing down their necks. \ rhammerton@theweeklyreview.com.au

falcons swoop in opener Netball

City West Falcons have allayed fears of a premiership hangover with a total dismantlement of local rivals VU-Western Lightning in the Victorian Netball League championship season opener at the State Netball and Hockey Centre on Wednesday night. The Falcons were fast starters, bursting to an eight-goal quarter-time lead, an advantage they would only increase in a ruthless 52-34 win. An upbeat Falcons assistant coach Nicole Richardson was impressed by the completeness of the performance so early in the season. “To come up against VU in the first round ... they’re a really tough opponent, so to be able to put the four quarters in like the girls did was great to see, particularly when you’re talking about round one,” she told the Weekly. “We came out of the blocks firing, which is pleasing because in the past against VU we’ve been slow with our starts. “It was a focal point for the team and that basically set up the match.” Rookie Alice Teague-Neeld was a selection surprise when first-choice goal shooter Kath Knott was a late withdrawal with a hamstring injury. Teague-Neeld made the most of her first championship start with a stellar game in the attacking circle. The teenager shot the lights out with 27-from-28 for a 97 per cent return against

one of the VNL’s best defensive combinations. “For a first-up performance at that level, she did a great job,” Richardson said. “She only missed one goal under what I would classify as the toughest defensive combinations in the competition in Fiona Themann and Brooke Thompson. “She offered a bit of speed for us and caused a bit of havoc for their circle defenders.” The Falcons missed only three shots all night with last year’s championship-winning goaler Julia Knott scorching with 25-from-27 for 93 per cent. That might create a selection headache for tonight’s second round game with Kath Knott scheduled to return. The Falcons’ mid-court ran smoothly on night one with Maggie Lind thriving on her new wing attack role alongside centre Liz Watson. Casey Price was the stand-out defender for the Falcons, but the Lightning’s front line resembles nothing like the one that made it to the preliminary final last season and is still a work in progress. “That was their first hitout with that combination so they’re still finding their feet,” Richardson acknowledged. The Falcons will host Ballarat Pride at the State Netball and Hockey Centre tonight at 7, while the Lightning will meet the Southern Saints at the same time on an adjacent court. \ LANCE JENKINSON ljenkinson@mmpgroup.com.au

love saves day for eagles Cricket

Matthew Love was a last-gasp hero for Yarraville in a cliffhanger four-wicket win over Altona in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association at JK Grant Reserve on Saturday. It was only fitting that Love would hit the winning run for the Eagles at the back of a match-winning 104 not out. With scores deadlocked and a ball remaining, Love played the ball to cover and scampered through for a quick single, sparking celebrations in the dressing room. “The boys were pretty pumped about it,” Eagles player-coach Adam Yates told the Weekly. “It was tight towards the end so it was great to get over the line and beat a local side. “You get up for the teams who are nearby and always put a bit extra into it because you play them every season.”

This was an upset of the highest order. The (17) and Ryan Cox (12no).

seagulls fail to fly in western derby Cricket

Williamstown was left pining for a game breaker in a 46-run road loss to Werribee in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association western derby at Chirnside Park on Saturday. While the home side got significant output from stars Tim O’Brien (106no) and Heath Pritchard (5-38), the Seagulls were littered with promise but lacking in a player who could take the bull by the horns and drag them to victory. The Seagulls were gallant in their run chase, reaching 192 on the second day. At times, they made the Tigers’ imposing target of 239 appear attainable, but the lack of a player raising the bat – no one went on to reach 50 – would prove costly. “There’s 106 out of 239 [by O’Brien] and five-for out of 10 wickets [by Pritchard] that need to be taken,” Werribee captain Shaun Dean told the Weekly. “The two stand-out performers were the difference for us in the overall scheme of things.” The Seagulls could have done without a slow start. They were 2-7 with both openers back in the pavilion and it put pressure on the middle order. Craig Sheedy (29), Brenton Hodges (28) and Jonty Paulsen (33) breathed life into the chase, but each departed seemingly as if about to click into top gear. A 68-run eighth-wicket partnership between Jordan Doyle (41) and Sam Davis (17) provided late hope for the Seagulls, but it was snuffed out in the worst possible way when Davis was run out with a direct hit from Tigers mid-wicket fielder Adam Alifraco. The Seagulls are a hefty 10 points outside

dean, russ star for gritty bulldogs premier Cricket

Footscray Edgewater has been left with no choice but to bat into the second day of its clash with Camberwell Magpies when play resumes at the Camberwell Sports Ground on Saturday. The Bulldogs were blindsided by the conditions, opting to bat on a damp pitch that maintained its moisture under overcast skies. Bulldogs coach Steve Chapman was proud of the grit and determination shown by his batsmen to compile 7-230 on a rain-interrupted first day, but he says there’s still work to be done. “It was a tough day, but I was impressed with the way we applied ourselves,” he said. “It was a day that needed a lot of patience and a lot of skill. “On any given day, I wouldn’t be encouraging our side to bat on for a second day, but the way this panned out we’ll obviously need to use some of those overs next week.” First drop Travis Dean almost made it back-to-back tons, but fell short on 95. His steely resolve to bat for 277 minutes and face 231 balls was in contrast to his free-flowing innings of a week earlier. “Last week, he was fluent and finding the gaps, while this week he was tough and hit a lot of good ball for no runs,” Chapman said. Dean Russ contributed 49 from an opening spot and Sunam Gautam added 30 from the middle order. Russ topped a solid week at the crease after top-scoring with 88 for Victoria in a Futures League game. A call-up to the Victorian Bushrangers squad for the Sheffield Shield may be on the horizon. “We would like to think he’s presenting a good case all the time,” Chapman said. As the captain, Russ’s value to the Bulldogs is more than just a matter of runs and averages – it is weighed in leadership qualities and selfless attitude. Chapman said it was his role to “have the back” of Russ so he could play a bit more selfishly and try to take that next step into first-class cricket. “He’s been head and shoulders leading the way,” Chapman said. “But I said to him at Christmas, ‘Just do some stuff for yourself, rather than worrying about everybody around you’. “I just want him to make some selfish runs – he’s had everyone’s back in the team this year.” After the Bushrangers slumped to a record low 6-9 in a recent clash with New South Wales, perhaps the Bushrangers could use a steady hand such as Russ at the top of the batting order. \ LJ

LYDIA, YOU’VE DONE US PROUD

altona clutch at slim finals chance

Winter Olympics

Bowls

Lydia Lassila, you are our inspiration. You have done the western suburbs proud with your brave performances at the Sochi Olympics. Lassila was the talk of coffee shops across the west on Saturday morning after claiming a bronze medal in the ladies’ aerials. The 32-year-old from Diggers Rest is more than a dual Olympic medallist, she is a ground breaker. The former Footscray City Gymnastics Club member set a goal of becoming the first woman to attempt an in-competition quad-twisting triple somersault. The degree of difficulty was out of this world, but Lassila was not going to die wondering. “I was always going to go into these Olympics with that approach, all or nothing,” she told Channel Ten after the super final. “I’m the first woman to do the full-doublefull-full. I set out to do this trick 15 years ago when I saw my first world cup at Mt Buller in Australia and that was in 1999. “I saw the guys doing these amazing triples and I said one day I’m going to do it. Fifteen years later, I did it, and I’m super happy. “I’ve reached my potential. It would be great to always do more, but that was a maximum effort from me today and I couldn’t have done any better.” Lassila entered the super final with the second best score of the qualifiers. The surprise packet of the final was Belarusian veteran Alla Tsuper, who had the smoothest landing on the back of a back-full-full-full jump and scored 98.01 to claim gold. China’s Li Nina attempted a back double-full double-full, a difficult jump and botched the landing, scoring just 46.02. Four years ago, Lassila won gold at the Vancouver Olympics. She had gold on her mind at the top of the hill in this final leap at Sochi. Under her fluoro yellow glasses she had a steely look, nothing indicating the nerves of a

Altona will go into the final round of the Bowls Victoria metro premier division on a wing and a prayer. The A’s have only a faint heartbeat and will flatline if even the most intricate details fail to go in their favour on Saturday. They need to beat Mentone in the 18th and last round of the season and have to do so with a clean sweep of the rinks. Nothing less than 18-0 is likely to suffice if the A’s are to jump from sixth into the top four. If they can achieve that, then things get complicated, with fourth-placed Melbourne meeting fifth-placed Essendon. According to the calculations of A’s skip Brett Dodd, the most favourable outcome for his side would be a 14-4 win by Essendon. But at least there’s a glimmer of hope. “We’ve probably left it a bit late, but we can still make it, believe it or not,” Dodd said. “If Essendon win 14-4 and we win 18-0, we’re in. “You’re relying on other results and it’s not what you want. “We’re definitely capable of getting all 18 points ... all we can do is get the 18 and see what happens.” The A’s’ lifeline came after Saturday’s 106-64 mauling of Burwood District. Brenton Coad (38-14), Brett Foley (26-13) and Matthew Rennex (26-20) recorded solid wins. David Zitter lost by a shot on the last agonising end. It was one of the rare times this season that the A’s maintained a high standard from start to finish. “We’re usually playing good for halves in games and then having flat spots,” Dodd said. “It’s hard to put your finger on why. The talent is there for sure.” \ LJ

woman about to go where no other had gone before. She ticked all the technical boxes but drifted slightly in the air and it played havoc with her landing. “There’s nothing Lydia could have done more to save that jump,” Olympic gold medallist and TV commentator Alisa Camplin said. The judges gave Lassila 72.12 – a guaranteed podium finish. “I’m very happy with my performance,”

she said. “It would’ve been great to land that jump, but I was stretching for my life and I just couldn’t get there. Whether Lassila’s medal was silver or bronze depended on the final competitor, China’s Xu Mengtao. Xu approached her back-lay double-full-full more cautiously and lost momentum and a gold medal in the process. But she did enough to pip Lassila for silver with a score of 83.50. \ LANCE JENKINSON

The Rams turned to reliever Jeremy Young and he maintained the high standards that saw him pick up the win in a mid-week game against Geelong. “He is somebody who is developing really well in a closing role for us this year,” Young said. “He’s a real gamer and just goes up there and gives it everything he’s got.” The Rams will face Melbourne on the road in the last game of the season on Saturday. \ LJ
