y folks are the only people I know who bought a dog and got their house free. The deal was clinched when the thenowners announced that if they couldn’t sell Mick with the house he’d be put down, because he was “too old” to be rehoused. ‘The $225,000 dog’ we called him and he went on to live for another four years – the happiest, I believe, of his 17-year life. After I returned from the vet’s with an empty collar on the seat where a dog should be, it took six months to tempt Dad to the pound. We called the Jack Russell who stole his heart ‘Boy’, because it was the only thing he seemed to recognise – that ... and Dad. He was a stray and had a long-expired registration tag from Albany, Western Australia. There’s no way of knowing how he got to the Victorian Goldfields, but I’ve always fancied he walked — doggedly following the railway track in search of his lost owner, crossing a whole continent before finally giving up and bestowing all that loyalty on Dad. But, like old Mick, Dad, 86, is wearing out. In fact, he’s in the hospital. I took him there three days ago, and Boy is beside himself. The break-in by police probably didn’t help. Really, though, what was the cleaner meant to think when she arrived at the house at 8am for her fortnightly visit only to find Dad’s car in the drive with the windows down, the house locked and the dog nutty? Boy is inconsolable. Even cheese won’t tempt him. And when I took him for a walk yesterday he stopped at the railway line and looked west for the longest time.

INBRIEF Blind women barred from restaurant Three legally blind women who were refused service at a Moonee Ponds restaurant because of their guide dogs have lodged a human rights complaint. Kathryn Beaton, of Glenroy, Pamela Hyland, of Wandin North, and Madeline Seiter, of Numurkah, had intended to hold a small fund raiser for Guide Dogs Victoria at 5pm last Wednesday at La Four Seasons Restaurant, in Puckle Street, when staff barred the dogs from entry. Ms Beaton said the party told the restaurant manager it was illegal to refuse them service under the Disability Discrimination and the Domestic Animals acts. La Four Seasons manager Mason Hawkins said the women were told they could not bring the guide dogs into the restaurant but were offered a table outside because other customers did not want to eat beside the dogs. She said her staff had not known about the discrimination laws in relation to guide dogs.

Well placed: Moonee Valley Racing Club’s punt to host a two-day Cox Plate carnival has paid off.

Picture: Pat Scala

Club backs a winning double BY ROBERT FEDELE MOONEE Valley Racing Club chief executive officer Michael Browell has hailed the club’s bold plan to stage a two-day Cox Plate carnival for the first time as a huge success. ‘‘It’s been a great success on all angles,’’ Mr Browell said of the double-header. The club hatched its ambitious plans for a twoday carnival in the aftermath of last year’s Cox Plate. The objective was to showcase its niche, night racing, and to build focus on its signature race. The Friday night meeting featured the Group 1 Manikato Stakes over 1200 metres, which was moved forward from its usual slot in September. Mr Browell said the club had reached its target goals, attracting a crowd of 9000 on the Friday night and just under 31,000 on Cox Plate day. ‘‘All eyes of the world are on racing in that key four-week period [spring racing carnival] and

[ 6 ] MOONEE VALLEY WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

we’ve been keen to get a key feature night race meeting in,’’ he said. ‘‘The big question was whether the track would hold up over 17 races over 24 hours. The track raced perfectly for the two meetings and hopefully that will dispel any concerns.’’ Mr Browell said the club planned to continue with the concept next year. Talk of a night Cox Plate has grown momentum in recent years, but Mr Browell said there were no plans at this stage to run Australia’s greatest weight-for-age event under lights. This year’s race was run at 5.15pm. ‘‘It will sort of stay in that range,’’ Mr Browell said. ‘‘My preference would be for 5.35 or 5.40pm.’’ Once again, the race failed to attract an overseas runner, but Mr Browell said the club was still committed to an international strategy. The Luca Cumani-trained Afsare was all set to run two weeks out before succumbing to injury.

‘‘It’s a matter of finding the right horse, and targeting that horse to make the trip out,’’ Mr Browell added. The racing club is still in negotiations with Moonee Valley Council over redevelopment plans in a hope to secure its future. Plans include building several 25-storey apartment towers (expected to house up to 6000 residents), a retail precinct, early-learning centre, kindergarten and 3000-square-metre park. Details of the development were presented to the council in February as part of a draft master plan. The club is currently preparing to address council concerns, including heritage issues, before again attempting to get the controversial project off the ground. ‘‘We hope to be in a position to respond in the next four weeks,’’ Mr Browell said. ‘‘Now with the new council, hopefully the lines of communication will open up.’’

Mayor and the chamber of ‘secret deals’ BY ROBERT FEDELE

‘Awestruck’: Cr Narelle Sharpe was overwhelmed at being elected mayor. Picture: Arlene Sachon

BUCKLEY ward councillor Narelle Sharpe has been elected the new mayor of Moonee Valley. The 40-year-old Essendon resident was first elected to council in 2008 and was re-elected last weekend, achieving the highest number of primary votes in her ward. Days later Cr Sharpe was installed as mayor after defeating the only other nominee, Cr John Sipek, five votes to four, at a statutory meeting last Wednesday night. Cr Sharpe was visibly overwhelmed immediately after the vote. ‘‘I’m awestruck at the moment, excuse me,’’ she said before composing herself. ‘‘I didn’t expect to be in this position.’’ Last week, the Moonee Valley Weekly reported that Cr Sharpe would

be favourite to take over the reins as mayor in 2013 if there were minimal changes to the council after the election, understanding that a deal had been struck behind the scenes. Cr Sharpe said she looked forward to leading the new council line-up after an ‘‘involved’’ election process for all candidates. ‘‘I am honoured and humbled to be able to take care of this city for the next year. Being a newly elected council there are a lot of issues we need to attend to sooner rather than later.’’

Deputy drama While the mayoral election had been the main item on the agenda at last week’s meeting, it was the race for deputy mayor that ruffled the most feathers. Cr Jim Cusack was the first nominated before a call for others to put their hand up.

Cr John Sipek then proceeded to nominate at will without success. He first nominated new councillor Nicole Marshall, who declined the nomination. Next up was Cr Jan Chantry, who also declined. He then tried nominating Cr Shirley Cornish, who again declined. Finally, new Rose Hill ward councillor Andrea Surace nominated herself to end the absurdity, eventually losing the role of deputy to Cr Cusack five votes to four. The episode left the small number of residents in the gallery dumbfounded. Cr Surace was equally dismayed. ‘‘Tonight was a little bit of a surprise,’’ said Cr Surace, the former first woman mayor of Keilor who has returned to local government after a 17-year absence. ‘‘Obviously the councillors that have nominated and voted Narelle in worked

out their numbers in a deal. Nothing’s changed. I got on to the council back in 1986. There were seven Labor Party councillors and two independents. This will be a slow process. Maybe at the next election we’ll get some more independent people in who are there for the community and not for a Party.’’ Cr Surace ran for the Niddrie byelection in March, finishing a distant second to Ben Carroll. ‘‘I knew that the Labor Party would win because it’s been safe since 1976. But I’m independent and I speak my mind and I speak for the community. So that’s why I wanted to get back up there and run on the council.’’ Cr Surace said she hoped to work together with her fellow councillors to get the best outcome for her ward. Priority issues include road infrastructure and sporting developments, she added.

New faces welcomed in ward shake-up WHO’SWHO New Moonee Valley Council Buckley ward Narelle Sharpe Jan Chantry Paul Giuliano Myrnong ward Cam Nation Jim Cusack Nicole Marshall Rose Hill ward John Sipek Andrea Surace Shirley Cornish

MOONEE Valley welcomed three new faces to the chamber after last weekend’s council election. The biggest change came in Myrnong ward, where the incumbent mayor Jim Cusack was joined by newcomers, independents Cam Nation and Nicole Marshall. Former Keilor mayor Andrea Surace ousted Ange Kenos in Rose Hill ward. She joins councillors John Sipek and Shirley Cornish. There were no changes in Buckley ward, with Narelle Sharpe, Jan Chantry and Paul Giuliano all reelected. Cr Surace told the Weekly she hoped to bring ‘‘maturity and

knowledge at a time when a lot of things are changing’’. Cr Nation polled well in Myrnong ward, with a 20 per cent primary vote, compared to Cr Cusack who received 18.52 per cent. Despite running a “good and thorough” campaign, Cr Nation said “it was a surprise” to be elected. “It was pretty humbling that my message resonated with residents.” Winning also came as a surprise to Cr Marshall, who was fourth in Myrnon’s primary vote (14.67 per cent), but beat incumbent Cr Miriam Gillis (14.96 per cent) on preferences. “I knew it would be a difficult contest so I was very pleasantly surprised to get across the line. I’m

COMMENT ●

Resident uproar a sign of the times

OONEE Valley Racing Club has had its annual big-ticket event for the Cox Plate, to which it added a night meeting on the Friday. The club won few friends at the council for adding the sponsor’s name to electronic signs on the median strip opposite Queen’s Park and on road closure signage in Pascoe Vale Road. It is fortunate to be granted use of prime space on Crown land, but locals weren’t impressed to have the name of a corporate bookmaker up in lights. The bookie’s name was removed once citizens hit the council offices with complaints. Now the club can focus on its controversial planning application, which has little chance of

M

success. Two council candidates who made their opposition to the Valley’s redevelopment a key plank in their campaign platforms were both successful. This community is vehemently opposed to the redevelopment. Racing club chairman Bob Scarborough is on record as stating that if the club doesn’t get its way, the MVRC might well close the course down. Now there’s a good idea. Who needs Moonee Valley when we have Flemington nearby.

Cyclist set to peddle their case The three new Moonee Valley councillors can expect a visit from the powerful cycling lobby which had remarkable influence on the previous council. Dedicated bike lanes were added to our streets. In practice, they are simply not being used. Well, most of them anyway. It’s a rare sight to see a cyclist in the special Buckley Street lane in East Keilor, or in Dean Street, Moonee Ponds. Yet the former council wanted to create a bike lane on busy Mt Alexander Road

Bad signs: Cox Plate sponsorship signage wasn’t confined to the track, raising the ire of the council and residents. Picture: Pat Scala

between Fletcher street and Moonee Ponds junction. The cycling lobby will no doubt try to get the new councillors on board to push their case. But before decisions are made for any more lanes, the council needs to do better homework to ensure there’s a modicum of support. Among the cycling community at least, right now there’s very little.

Doctor shortage a bit long in the tooth No greater incentive to keep fit than knowing how tough it is these days to see a local doctor. An Essendon practice simply locked the doors last Thursday afternoon due to a GP shortage. Its well-meant apology didn’t make patients left in the

lurch, or those needing prescriptions, feel any better. At Avondale Heights, a sick patient was turned away two weeks ago. ‘‘We are one doctor short’’, the clinic said, ‘‘so unless you have been here before, we can’t help you’’. Over the road at Milleara Mall, an upstairs suite is called a medical clinic — but there are no medicos there apparently. While Canberra squabbles with Victoria over more money for the health system, it’s going to be light years before the doctor shortage is resolved, if ever.

Skills on the boil

MVLEGENDS

BY BENJAMIN MILLAR A MASTERCHEF-inspired cook-off has rounded out a program aimed at giving young people the skills for healthy living. A group aged 15 to 25 from community organisation Latitude: Directions for Young People were cooking up a storm by the end of SecondBite’s eight-week Food Angels program. Each Tuesday, the SecondBite van delivered a food hamper of rescued fruit, vegetables, milk, eggs and bread to Latitude’s Moonee Ponds site. SecondBite research and development co-ordinator Liza Wallis said those who took part learnt how to prepare a healthy meal. “Not only were participants building up their cooking skills, they were also involved in a range of nutrition education activities and games,” she said. Topics included practical skills in food budgeting, food safety, healthy eating and food metabolism. The final session earlier this month involved a Masterchef-style cook-off in the Wingate Community Centre industrial kitchen.

DISADVANTAGED children and young people living in Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inner-west will be given the opportunity to develop their writing and reading skills outside the classroom with the help of a new project. Through the 100 Story Building project a centre â&#x20AC;&#x201D; said to be the first of its kind in Melbourne â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will open its doors in either Flemington or Footscray next March. Program director and co-founder Lachlann Carter said the idea was to get children involved with all aspects of publishing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is about being involved in real-life, authentic publishing projects. They are not only learning about the writing process but also have the opportunity to create published works.â&#x20AC;? The centre will offer free creative writing workshops, publishing projects and after-school programs to more than 1000 children from diverse and disadvantaged communities in the first year. Mr Carter said the program would work

closely with schools to provide children with a space outside the classroom where they could feel comfortable and be creative. Author ambassadors Alice Pung and Sally Rippin spoke of the potential of the project at its official launch at Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Wheeler Centre last Tuesday night. Pung said the project would help foster selfesteem and self-respect in children, some of whom may not have grown up with reading in the house or even literate parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being a writer from the suburbs of Braybrook and Footscray, I have seen first-hand the effects of early-age voicelessness, alienation and frustration which often results in early school leaving,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. The project has received start-up funding but will continue operating with school holiday workshops and masterclasses for adults on writing for children also to be offered.

Blistered feet, fatigue: let’s ‘re-live’ the track BY ROBERT FEDELE STUDENTS, teachers, and police from across Moonee Valley who tackled the gruelling Kokoda Track in July will celebrate their journey tomorrow night at a special presentation at Moonee Valley racecourse. This year’s Kokoda crew included Victoria’s chief police commissioner, Ken Lay, who will attend the reunion. The program, which has been running since 2007, was initially developed to forge better relations between youth and police. As it has previously, the Moonee Valley Weekly followed the Kokoda trip every step of the way through online diary updates direct from the Owen Stanley Ranges. Students took it in turns each night to report on their experience via satellite phone. The Kokoda concept was the brainchild of former Moonee Valley inspector Nigel Howard, who now runs Victoria Police’s Operations Response Unit The now-Acting Superintendent Howard said

the presentation evening was a chance for participants to reflect on their journey and to make a presentation to sponsors in appreciation of their involvement. ‘‘Without them the program wouldn’t happen,’’ Acting Superintendent Howard said. ‘‘And it’s also to get the kids to talk about their experiences.’’ He said the program had evolved since its inception when the aim was to improve relations. ‘‘I just think it’s a great outcome for a community when, five years ago, police and the community in the area were at loggerheads. ‘‘The tensions that existed in the community have disappeared.’’ Today, Acting Superintendent Howard said the program offered much more. It has grown each year, with a diverse range of schools and police members jumping on board. ‘‘It’s become bigger and it’s been embraced by the community. ‘‘It’s seen by the broader community as a way of building relationships.’’ Acting Superintendent Howard said he was

[to see the benefits]. It’s sometimes very emotional, knowing the background of some of these kids and to see what they’ve gone and achieved.’’

Ain’t it grand: pianos still a key purchase BY SARAH HARRIS WHILE pianos no longer hold pride and place in every living room, an Essendon-based company is still doing a strong trade in satisfying people’s desire to tickle their own ivories. Exclusive Piano Group (EPG), in which trucking magnate Lindsay Fox is the major shareholder, reports there is still strong demand for acoustic pianos, in spite of the economic downturn. “People are still very interested in pianos and learning music,” said EPG managing director Mark O’Connor. “And honestly, if you have a child who comes home and says, ‘I want to learn the piano’, as a parent it’s really difficult to say no. “We have parents who come in who maybe want to start them on an electronic piano in the low range of maybe $1500. “Then we have people who come in who just decide they want a Steinway and spend over $250,000 on a concert grand. Mr O’Connor says that while most Steinways

are sold to institutions, such as as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Arts Centre, Scotch College and Melbourne University, they have a few private buyers too. One of the buyers, a Niddrie businessman approaching retirement, decided a Steinway model D worth $285,000 was a better investment than shares and, although he couldn’t play a note, was likely to get far more enjoyment from it. “He just loves music and his wife loves music,” O’Connor said of the buyer who asked to remain anonymous. “He wants to have concerts in his home and have musicians come around and play it for him. I gave him 10 lessons so he can at least start to play the thing.’’ A $200,000 limited edition concert grand based on John Lennon’s famous white Steinway was recently sold to a family in Point Cook. “The Asian community is a big customer base for us,” Mr O’Connor said. “The kids seem to be a little bit more focused. They have more of an understanding that you get out of things what you put into them.”

A COMMUNITY-driven project aimed to assist recently arrived migrants and refugees to obtain their driver’s licence was officially launched last Thursday at the Flemington Community Centre. Roads Minister Terry Mulder was on hand to announce $100,000 in funding from the Department of Transport to Moonee Valley Council to help kick-start the program, dubbed RoadSTART. The brainchild of members of the Flemington Rotary Club, the adult migrant learner driver program has involved the Flemington Neighbourhood Renewal, the Wingate Avenue Community Centre, Moonee Valley Legal Service, Victoria Police and the RACV. Flemington Rotary president Lesley McCarthy said the project had been in the pipeline for three years and was heavily inspired by recently named Moonee Valley Citizen of the Year Peter Cribb. The club works closely with residents from the Debney Meadows estate in a variety of fields and Ms McCarthy said it became apparent that

locals, particularly from the Horn of Africa, needed some help. ‘‘They were having great trouble getting their licence because none of them had cars,’’ Ms McCarthy said. Funding will allow the program to run for the next three years. The project involved purchasing two cars, which will be on hand everyday for people to use. Learner drivers will be instructed by trained and registered volunteers. But before they get on the road, they will have the opportunity of chalking up three hours on a driving simulator to get up to speed. Ms McCarthy said the program already had 40 people registered and could increase depending on the amount of volunteers available. ‘‘It’s absolutely magical. It’s been a dream we’ve been working on for three years. To see it come to fruition is fantastic. We know that the people in the community will benefit.’’ The Flemington Rotary Club’s main fundraiser is an Op Shop located on Racecourse Road, and it assists several community groups in the area.

INSIDESTORY

Cream of the While most teenage footballers enjoy an off-season break, a select few have maintained their fitness and intensity in a bid to make the big time. TARA MURRAY looks at what it takes to make the AFL grade. T’S the middle of September and the football season is over for the Calder Cannons, but a group of about 12 players continues to train three times a week at Highgate Reserve in Craigieburn. Long, tough sessions under the watchful eye of strength and conditioning coach Steve Forcone are the order of the day. For these players, it’s all about ensuring they’re in top condition for the first week of October and a shot of AFL fame in pre-draft try-outs, including the NAB AFL draft combine (formerly the draft camp), state screening sessions and the AFL ‘DraftStar’ camp. Star at one of these and your stocks rise, along with the chances of being drafted to an AFL club on November 22. Cannon midfielder Jonathan O’Rourke, who hails from the Gisborne Rookies, has been selected to take part in the draft combine. Widely touted as a top 10 pick at next month’s AFL draft, the 18-year-old has been joining his 11 teammates three times a week to prepare for the physical grilling at the camp. ‘‘I’m just trying to go there and have a consistent base in all the testing,’’ O’Rourke says. ‘‘We do gym stuff on the outside, but pretty much we’re doing three nights here and having a rest in between.’’ The Cannons players aren’t alone. Around Melbourne, draft prospects from the TAC Cup teams are working just as hard, including a group of Western Jets players, among them Jake McKenzie. Originally from the Altona Vikings, McKenzie has seen his older brother Trent, a Gold Coast Suns player, go through it all before him ‘‘Hopefully, all the hard work will pay off,’’ McKenzie says of his combine selection. ‘‘I’m doing two running, three weights and three swimming sessions a week; it’s pretty full-on. I reckon I’m fitter now than I was preseason.’’ Jets captain Ashlin Brown is preparing to show his wares at the state screening. ‘‘Towards the end of the year, the training backed up as the games got more intense,’’ the Hoppers Crossing Warriors protege says. ‘‘We’re training harder, getting fit and trying to beat our times from the start of the year.’’ Jets strength and conditioning coach Mathew Pell says this is the time for the players to shine. ‘‘Obviously there was a large drop-off by the time we had finished the season,’’ he says. ‘‘We really tried to adjust their physical preparation and keep that level of fitness and intensity up for what is the expectation at the national combine. ‘‘We really had to challenge them with their energy system training and some interval-based training.’’ Pell says many people don’t realise the work the players put in before the draft. ‘‘These guys are walking into some pretty big

contracts if they are potentially drafted. They have to be doing everything in their physical power to put their hand up. ‘‘Unfortunately, the normal person going through at this particular age group just simply drops off in their training [at the end of the season] and has a good rest without addressing the long-term needs. ‘‘If they don’t shine now, then realistically they’ve missed the boat to play AFL.’’ Hitting the track isn’t the only thing on the minds of the players, particularly those studying for exams: they include Cannons and Macedon Cats star Lachie Plowman. ‘‘During the year I found out I would be going to the draft combine which is pretty cool,’’ says Plowman, an athletic backman also tipped as a high draft pick. ‘‘It’s hard to fit school and training. ‘‘At the start of the school year, I’ve had to concentrate on school, and training had to fit

‘If they don’t shine now, then realistically they have missed the boat to play AFL.’ — Mathew Pell around that. ‘‘As school is finishing up, I’ve been able to do a bit more fitness stuff and still study at the same time.’’ The national draft combine at Etihad Stadium has the best 120 footballers invited to spend four days in the one place. They stay together as a group and concentrate on one thing: football. They are measured, weighed, medically tested and interviewed by the media and club recruiters before they even take the field. Then the real testing begins; jumping, sprints, agility tests, ball skills, goal kicking, endurance running and the dreaded beep test. Western Jets and Spotswood spearhead Spencer White has a point to prove at the combine, after originally missing out on selection. ‘‘I was pretty disappointed not to get it,’’ he says after day two of the combine, ‘‘so I wanted to prove that I belong here by getting a good result. I was hoping to go all right on the jumps but didn’t know how I would go.’’ White, who has been likened to Hawthorn superstar Lance Franklin, topped the list for the running vertical jump with a leap of 100cm, only two centimetres short of the record held by AFL stars Nic Naitanui and Jared Brennan. He also finished third in the standing vertical jump. Cannons best and fairest winner Rory

Atkins is another to take part in the combine. After the first two days, Atkins, a gun midfielder from Maribyrnong Park, was disappointed with his results. ‘‘It’s good to finally get to this stage of the year and get together with the top 120 blokes from across Australia. ‘‘So far I’ve been middle of the road with everything . . . not too good, but not too bad. ‘‘I’ve had a couple of meetings with teams while I’m here, so I will see how I go.’’ Putting the disappointment of the first two days behind him, he was equal-first in the kicking test with 29/30. State screening gives 115 players a chance to

test in front of clubs for one day, doing the same tests as those at the combine. Western Jets best and fairest winner Josh Bench was among those selected. ‘‘I didn’t get it [picked for the screening] straight away but ended up getting the selection, which was pretty good,’’ says the hard-nosed midfielder from West Footscray who made a name for himself at Albion. ‘‘It was pretty disappointing not to get a spot at the screening and I kept coming down for training for the young guns’ game and eventually got picked.’’ Most players recruited this year will come from either the combine or state screening. For

those who haven’t come through the traditional under-18 competitions, there’s another alternative — the DraftStar combine. In its second year, this includes a mix of players invited from the TAC Cup and others from other leagues who choose to attend. According to Pell, who ran the DraftStar, many of the players were more determined as they saw it as their last opportunity. ‘‘These are the guys who are putting their hands up, playing for, in some cases, local-level football or at a state level. ‘‘They have put their best foot forward and this is a secondary way for them to get noticed.

Pell says players at DraftStar were recording times just as good as those at the national combine. Cannons and Strathmore midfielder Darcy Bailey, son of former Melbourne coach Dean, says going to DraftStar is a bit of an unknown. ‘‘I’m very lucky to be given an opportunity to test well at DraftStar. ‘‘From all reports, it’s similar to the state screening and national. It’s all the same tests, and I’m really looking forward to it. ‘‘Hopefully, I’ll do pretty well.’’ With the testing over, the players have done all they can. Now it’s a waiting game to see whether their dreams will come true.

PROFILE ●

A lifetime with littlies BY ROBERT FEDELE ISA Leehane has spent a lifetime caring for children in one way or another. ‘‘I’ve worked with them for 32 years,’’ the Sunbury woman says proudly. For seven years, Mrs Leehane has worked as a family support officer with Moonee Valley Council at its Devon Avenue Maternal and Child Health Centre in East Keilor. It’s there that she has perhaps had her most profound impact. She was instrumental in establishing the Able Hearts Playgroup for children with special needs. The group was formed in 2010 and is an offshoot of the regular playgroup. It began with three families and has expanded to seven. Mrs Leehane, who assists maternal child health nurses, says she noticed a need for a specialised group and decided to start a separate one that would provide families with support and advice. ‘‘Because they [the children] didn’t fit into the normal realms of a playgroup,’’ Mrs Leehane explains of her plan. ‘‘Because all these other children were meeting their milestones and these

children weren’t.’’ The playgroup, which meets on Monday mornings, has turned into a support group for parents where they can share their experiences. ‘‘They have difficulties they can share with other mums and dads because if they went to another playgroup they wouldn’t understand.’’ Mrs Leehane recently received a Spirit of Moonee Valley award for her contribution and was one of eight finalists for ‘citizen of the year’. Parents from Able Hearts nominated her for the award. ‘‘These families and their children . . . working with them is so rewarding. It’s all the little steps you take that mean so much more.’’ As well as Able Hearts, Mrs Leehane is involved with the Nick’s Wish foundation, established to ease the financial burden of families who have a child diagnosed with cancer. The group began after the son of a friend of Mrs Leehane’s died in 2010 after battling cancer. It has so far raised $85,000, which it has used to buy care packs for patients at the Royal Children’s Hospital. A humble woman, Mrs Leehane says her service is something she loves doing and nothing special. ‘‘I find what I do is what I should be doing. It’s not something extra.’’

A test of metal BY ROBERT FEDELE OONEE Ponds-based band Avalerion will represent Moonee Valley at the northern and western edition of the 2012 FReeZA Push Start Battle of the Bands regional finals on November 17 at the Derrimut YMCA. The happy-go-lucky quintet is made up of a bunch of like-minded schoolmates from Parade College in Bundoora. The missing link was 16-year-old Alex Livingston, of Sunshine, whom the band met through mutual friends. Avalerion took out a heat earlier this year to earn the right to take part in the regional finals, playing alongside their heroes, metalcore act Belle Haven, on the night. The annual band competition, which began in 1995, has become a rite of passage for many young Victorian bands looking for their big break. Bands to have come through the competition include Kisschasy and 2004 winners The Vasco Era. ‘‘We’re really excited,’’ says guitarist Daniel Marinakis.

M

‘‘We’ve always wanted to be part of a FReeZA event, see how far we can go and put on the best show we can.’’ Marinakis says the band doesn’t want to be pigeonholed but would be best described as a progressive metal group. ‘‘We have a really eclectic taste in music.’’ Four of the band members are completing their VCE and Marinakis says band members have put playing on the backburner throughout the year to focus on their studies. But once exams are over, the band plans to play more and make a fist of it. ‘‘We don’t have any prospects at all of living off music,’’ Marinakis says in a self-deprecating manner. ‘‘If it comes it comes. ‘‘We’re not relying on it, but we’re gonna try our best.’’

Avelarion take on six other bands at the Derrimut YMCA, corner of Foleys Road and Makland Drive, Derrimut, on November 17 at 7.30pm. Details: freeza.vic.gov.au or thepush.com.au

HILARY McNEVIN EATING OUT

ighpoint shopping centre has opened a new fresh food market that is a veritable feast of choice and quality product at very reasonable prices. Such a place needs to be explored. Enormous shopping centres are rarely associated to good fresh food, there’s a culture around them that readily disconnects us from where our food comes from — the bright lights, the airconditioning, the music — I was wary at first but delighted to find a well-designed area with earthy finishes, that’s easy to navigate and and has helpful service in each shop. There’s an instant buzz as you walk into the central area with the food

H

outlets surrounding the open space. High windows allow in natural light, and while there is a big-name supermarket over one side, it’s the other shops that got our attention. Melbourne Fresh Meats and Poultry is a thoughtfully designed shop with halal meats on one side including good quality beef and lamb. It sells cuts like Asado beef ribs, and offal such as ox livers and lamb hearts, while there are classic cuts like beef rump and lamb cutlets. There’s a separate section dedicated to pork, also reasonably priced with lots of pork belly as well as the less-fatty loin and leg cuts. Fish Pier has an enormous glass cabinet of fresh whole and filleted fish, and shellfish with a takeaway counter filled with deep-fried goodies. A good delicatessen is included in

the mix. Called, Yes it’s Fresh, it’s a name they can stand by as they sell quality cured meats, cheeses, antipasti and sausages both local and imported. Grab some dumplings and noodles at Yahweh Asian Grocery and then immerse yourself in the fresh fruit and vegetable shop that has interesting and intensely fresh produce that’s every colour of the rainbow. From capsicums and mangoes, eggplants to onions, it’s an exciting and vibrant new market at Highpoint and one that is absolutely worth exploring to start to get you reconnected to where your food comes from. Package free: The new fresh food market at Highpoint closes the disconnect between large shopping centres and where our food comes from.

Rhone ranger Ben Thomas samples Cotes of many colours

Love a bargain? most winemaking terms are French, so I could get the gist of what winemakers were saying. It showed that even though communications were strained, they’re always keen to show you the inner workings if you show an interest. I was keen to visit Domaine Font de Michelle in the famous Chateauneuf-du-Pape region. It has an Aussie connection; thirdgeneration winemaker Guillaume Gonnet is married to a Sydneysider, and I’d heard good things about the wines. The GPS took us around the houses and what should have been a 20-minute trip took 40. We arrived a bit flustered but were greeted by Kelly Gonnet, who said: “My three-year-old Olivia is out the back with her grandmother. She’s never played with an Aussie girl before.” We left two hours later with a tuckered-out child and a great understanding of the Gonnets’ wines. The Font de Michelle wines are available in Australia. I’ve already found a few. ■

★★★★ Rive Droite Rive Gauche 2010 (Cotes-du-Rhone) $15; 14.5% Imported by the Prince Wine Store, where it sells for $12.50 when bought by the case, this is a blend of 60 per cent grenache, 30 per cent syrah,10 per cent mourvedre and cinsault. There’s a lot going on, with aromas of violets, cherry, raspberry, plum, liquorice and spice. There’s good depth and a touch of sweetness to the core of red and black fruit flavours, but it’s not confected or jammy. Fine sandy tannins and vibrant acidity are nicely balanced with the ripe, lingering flavours. Food match Duck rillettes

While there are other grapes included in these blends, more often than not they are bit-part players. Maybe it was the hot weather, or the food, but I generally enjoyed drinking the entry-level Cotes du Rhone wines best. Not only were they the cheapest at cellar door, they were light and had a purity about them that some of the more expensive wines didn’t quite have. As the wines moved up in the pecking order they tended to become fuller-bodied and show more oak influence. It didn’t take long to find a balance between tasting wines and enjoying a holiday in the Rhone. Our days involved breakfast in the pretty town of Sainte-Cecile-les-Vignes, before a visit to a nearby village. Afternoons were spent meandering back to the house via wineries and cellar doors, trying to find the perfect wine to drink with dinner. I studied French until the end of year 11 and had an OK grasp of the language, although it’s rusty these days. I even summoned the courage to ask a few questions. Fortunately,

ver noticed how good wines taste in their local setting? It seems especially true of wines sampled overseas. A few months ago my family and some friends rented a house for a week just north of Orange, deep in the heart of France’s Cotes du Rhone wine region. I have retasted a few of the wines we drank since I’ve been back. Memories of the holiday came flooding back and the wines tasted as good as I remembered. The Cotes du Rhone covers a huge area of southern France, from the Rhone River east to the Vaucluse-Luberon chain of mountains and from Avignon in the south to Vienne in the north. As in other French wine regions, there’s a hierarchy of wines, with the entry level being Cotes du Rhone. Village wines are the next level up in quality, and wines from specific villages sit at the top of the pile. Reds in the southern part, where we were based, are generally blends of grenache, shiraz, mourvedre and cinsault and the whites a mix of marsanne, roussanne and viognier.

Makeovers that make dollars, and sense n these days of property market uncertainty, the mantra of ‘improve, don’t move’ has gathered momentum for many home owners. And if they’re smart, they will look for a local renovation company with established cred and experience in spades. Potters Bathroom & Kitchen Centre in East Keilor more than meets that criteria, as Brett Potter — owner, master plumber and master builder with 28 years’ experience — is keen to explain. ‘‘Our family business has been around for a long time and we have a crew of top-notch tradesmen who’ve been with us for up to 20 years. Our combined talents and level of workmanship enabled us to be a HIA award-winner for 2008-09 and it’s this depth of experience that guarantees our customers bathroom, kitchen, laundry and house renovations second to none,’’ Brett says. ‘‘We carry out the entire job, from

We’re known for our attention to detail and quality finishes. And all work carries a sevenyear warranty.’’ Brett earned his stripes as a newhome builder in the late 1980s, then moved into complete house renovations in the early 90s.

The next logical step was to establish his own business. He opened his showroom 12 years ago so customers can explore a large range of bathroom, kitchen and laundry fittings, fixtures and tiles. His team is ready to offer expert advice, so people would be mad not to take advantage of the knowhow and affordable prices on offer. Potters’ motto is ‘‘We will impress you’’, one proven by the many

available testimonials from past clients. Sue Murdoch put pen to paper to express her pleasure with work carried out by the firm: ‘‘All work was carried out within the time frame with little disruption to the household. They cleaned up each day ... [which] is really important when working fulltime. The workers were very organised . . . and I was kept fully informed

throughout the whole process. Their workmanship was excellent. The final result was a beautifully finished bathroom.’’ Potters Bathroom & Kitchen Centre, at 23 Slater Parade, East Keilor, opens 8.30am-5pm Monday-Friday and 8.30am-3pm Saturday. Inquiries: 9336 3555 or potter.com.au.

Luxury and city views await This double-storey delight combines space, splendour and versatility, writes Ross McGravie

ROSS McGRAVIE PROPERTY WRITER anoramic views and luxurious modern comforts allow discerning families to live up where they belong in this unique Pascoe Vale South residence. Exuding an impressive street presence behind its ornate wrought iron-and-brick fence and tiered timber steps and gardens on its 826-square-metre block, the double-storey delight (circa 2007) of about 45 squares is a stylish combination of space, luxury and versatility. The covered entry, which doubles as a verandah, is enhanced by the matching wrought-iron decoration on the glazed front door. Inside, a wide foyer displays the polished floorboards and high ceilings that continue through the ground level. Immediately to the right is a carpeted office, resplendent with a full-width buffet-style cabinet, wind-out windows and overhead cabinet. And to the left is direct entry to the double garage, which has a remote-controlled door and shelving. There’s additional off-street parking in a side drive

P

with electric gate. At the end of a small hall is the carpeted lounge room. Highlighted on one side by wall niches and on the other by a Heat N Glo gas log fire with peppermint accent wall, the lounge room has two large windows on either side of the accent wall. Opposite the staircase is a powder room, while an understairs storage room is on the other side of a small passage. The passage provides access into the rear living and dining domain and beyond into the northfacing backyard. Inside and to the right is the family room with peppermint accent wall and a Panasonic reverse-cycle airconditioner. It’s next to a large dining room and showpiece kitchen, which incorporates a Technika 900mm underbench oven, five-burner gas cooktop and glass-and-stainless-steel rangehood, pot drawers, tiled and garden window splashback, Caesarstone benchtops, and island bench/breakfast bar with Technika dishwasher and stainless-steel double sink. A walk-in pantry is next to the family-size laundry, which is equipped with broom cupboard and sink. Double doors from the dining room open to the light-filled rumpus room. Perfect as a kids’ play room, theatre room or billiards room, it has a Panasonic reverse-cycle airconditioner, mid-wall highlight window with timber venetians, and a sliding door to the third bathroom. Doubling its use with its access to the pool, the fully tiled bathroom includes an IXL heat lamp, toilet, mini-vanity and a shower. Sliding timber doors open from the living area and rumpus room to a sandstone-paved, covered entertainment area with wall-mounted TV. It overlooks the

Mediterranean-style landscaped gardens and top-level lawn area that complement the heated in-ground pool and spa with frameless-glass fence. Back inside and near the lounge room, the timber staircase ascends past the full-height window and to the vast sitting room. Straight ahead are two mirror-image bedrooms with built-in robes; a third bedroom with built-in robes; powder room; family bathroom with bath, vanity and corner shower; and the main bedroom suite with the front balcony from which to admire the views. The main bedroom suite includes a walk-through ’robe that doubles as a dressing room with its mirrored front, and the ensuite with separate toilet, double shower with pebble inset, vanity with twin basins, IXL heat lamp and an elevated Signature spa. The large balcony has spectacular 180-degree views, from the city skyline and West Gate Bridge and further across to the west.

A happily-ever-after home Six decades of memories for one family, many more years to come for the next, writes Ross McGravie ulie Stephens’ parents fell in love with their Edward Street home long before they stepped inside and bought it. And once they did, they lived happily ever. “My parents purchased the house nearly 60 years ago,” Julie said. “Even though they couldn’t view inside the house because it was tenanted, they fell in love with the street, location and amenities, particularly the church and schools, shops, park and public transport (tram and train). “It was here they raised five children and were regularly visited by their 13 grandchildren and extended family. We all have a kaleidoscope of happy memories growing up.” Julie said the house had been a drop-in centre for many family and friends. “Due to its location our home was the hub where friends would gather to and from school, before and after sporting events, or just to catch up before social occasions,” she said. ‘‘With St Therese’s tennis courts just around the corner, weekends were always busy, particularly for the three girls in the family. “We’ve been very fortunate to have always been surrounded by friendly and caring neighbours who look out for and genuinely support each other. After my father passed away my mother lived alone for another 18 years. ‘‘Even at 93 years old, Mum was steadfast in her decision to remain in her home because of her close connections to wonderful neighbours, the parish and community.” The double-fronted weatherboard house has been lovingly maintained, retaining strapped ceilings, picture rails, chandeliers and tapestrybrick fireplaces. It has three bedrooms (one has built-in wardrobes), lounge and dining room, bathroom, kitchen, meals area, and sunroom. There’s excellent potential to renovate, extend or rebuild on the 869-square-metre block, but before you start planning improvements, buyers should enjoy the lifestyle.

J

“Essendon North is a thriving shopping centre, with a wonderful variety of shops and facilities,” Julie said. “Mum would walk almost daily up the street to the supermarkets and local shops, do her banking, or enjoy a coffee with family and friends at one of the many cafes. “My mother recently passed away so now it’s time for a new family to enjoy this fabulous location. Yes, it will be sad to sell the home as it has been the gathering place for family, grandchildren and friends for nearly 60 years.It holds so many wonderful memories for us all.”
