Valley Life Your weekly update from Moonee Valley City Council

News, events and consultation Neighbourhood Character Study Council has adopted a Neighbourhood Character Study and Neighbourhood Character Precinct Profiles to strengthen the planning tools available to help ensure development reflects the character of a local area. The study also identified Significant Character Areas (SCA) - small areas across the municipality which may warrant additional planning protection. The next step of this project is to undertake another round of consultation on the parts of the documents that are proposed to be included or referenced in the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme and the two planning tools which would enable the implementation of the SCAs. Consultation will run until 8 November. For details on how to have your say call 9243 8888 or visit mvcc.vic.gov.au/ncs

t was rather disconcerting to see analysis of the recent local government elections in New South Wales focusing on their impact on state and federal politics. For someone who believes party politics should be banned from local government, I fear this could signal the beginning of the end of independent representation at local level. Councils are meant to be about grassroots politics, where people run to make their communities a better place. A council of independent peers generally ensures the community is well represented, but as we’ve seen in surrounding municipalities, party politics has a knack of hijacking this ideal. While candidates running under the Labor, Liberal or Greens flag provide an idea of the kind of policies they would adopt, we have to make sure that they will ultimately vote for what’s best for the people who voted for them rather than their party machine. There have been some excellent councillors who are members of political parties but have managed to remain largely independent. However, if political analysis continues to link local government with the state and federal sphere, the major parties will seek to have more influence in the result to ensure it doesn’t reflect poorly on their overall standing. Voters need to ensure their vote isn’t influenced by state or federal politics. There’s nothing wrong with voting for a candidate with party affiliations, but it would be a shame if they get in based on what’s happening in Spring Street or Canberra, rather than what they can offer Moonee Valley. ■ While the council elections won’t be decided until October 27, postal vote papers will be arriving in registered voters’ letterboxes this week so we’ve we’ve invited all candidates from the three wards to tell us what they feel is the biggest issue in Moonee Valley. See their profiles on pages 14-19.

INBRIEF Party night for girls Cancer Council Victoria is calling on women in Moonee Valley to register to host a Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Night In and show their support for the 94 local women expected to be diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancer this year. The premise of Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Night In is for women to register as hosts, invite friends over for a fun night in and ask them to donate to the Cancer Council what they would have spent on a night out. The aim is to raise $1.4 million this year and recruit 4735 Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Night In hosts. Forty-seven have registered in Moonee Valley and the Cancer Council is urging more residents to get involved. To register a Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Night In, call 1300 65 65 85 or visit girlsnightin.com.au

Shutterbugs get more time The deadline for entries in the Capture the Cover photographic competition has been extended to November 2, giving Moonee Valley residents more time to capture their community for the cover of their next Yellow Pages book. Budding photographers or people who just enjoy taking photos can upload their original images to CapturetheCover.com. The theme is Through the Eyes of a Local. Ten images will feature on the western region cover, with one major prize of either an iPad or Canon EOS 1100 digital SLR on offer and nine runner-up prizes of $50 cash up for grabs.

Winki Pop could bite candidates BY EUGENE BENSON CANDIDATES contesting the Moonee Valley Council elections could find themselves in danger of being excluded from voting on matters they have campaigned on should they be elected in the October 27 postal vote. Since a Supreme Court decision in 2007, resulting in the common law principle known as Winki Pop, greater scrutiny has been placed on councillors and candidates who may have expressed a bias or predetermined position on matters yet to be voted on by their council. In 2007, a company named Winki Pop successfully challenged a planning decision by Hobsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Council after it was revealed a councillor when still a candidate had made a formal submission against a proposed development. The Supreme Court ruled the council had a bias in allowing that councillor to be part of the decision-making process. In Myrnong ward, two candidates, Cam Nation and Frank Dinoto, have stated a position against the proposed Moonee Valley racecourse development on their Victorian Electoral Commission candidate profiles. Mr Nation stated: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;As your councillor, I guarantee to actively oppose the Moonee Valley race-

Shut out: A 2007 court decision could mean councillors who actively campaigned against the Moonee Valley racecourse development may be excluded from voting on matters surrounding it. course re-development.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And Mr Dinoto stated: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I stand for consultation and community and against the Moonee Valley Racing Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal, which doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider our residents and is inappropriate.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; A request from the racing club to the council to rezone six-hectares of its 40-hectare site to establish several multi-level apartment towers (expected to house up to 6000 residents) is still with the council. Municipal Association of Victoria chief executive Rob Spence said the candidatesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; comments could be an issue.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Winki Pop really established that effectively a councillor can not pre-judge an administrative decision. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;They need to enter the decision-making process and consider the issues with an open mind. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I would liken it to a criminal matter; if a judge had pre-judged you without hearing the evidence you would rightly feel aggrieved about that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In 2008, a document produced by the Department of Planning and Community Development in response to the Winki Pop decision was published as a guide for local government. Titled Ensuring Unbiased Democratic Council Decision Making Principles to Guide Good Practice, the document detailed the circumstances where a candidate or councillor could be perceived as having a bias. The document states: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;An individual councillor could create a perception of bias if he or she acts in a way that gives the impression that they have already made their mind up as to what the outcome of the administrative decision-making process should be and do nothing to indicate that they are capable of being persuaded by any further argument or by debate through the collective decision-making processes of council.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Council calls for volunteers

Charity goes only so far with mayoralty, seats up for grabs AN anonymous email sent to the Moonee Valley Weekly has criticised the council for holding its annual mayoral race night last Friday during the election caretaker period. The email, signed off with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Concerned Citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, said the night offered an unfair advantage to incumbent mayor Jim Cusack and deputy Miriam Gillis. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Although the event is for charity, it attracts over 300 guests who are from local businesses and community. The event is organised by Moonee Valley Council and uses council resources, providing what I see is an unfair advantage to the above candidates at the expense of ratepayers,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; the email stated.

In previous years, the mayoral charity race event has been held in November. Each mayor, since the annual charity race night started in 2005, has hosted the event during their mayoral term. Council chief executive Neville Smith, said: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In keeping with the tradition of this event, the date for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race night was chosen so that the event did not skip a mayoral term and was within Moonee Valley Racing Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s night racing season, which began on Friday, September 28 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; after the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s caretaker period had started. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Council has taken steps to ensure that the event is run in accordance with its caretaker policy. Measures taken include removing the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s messageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; from the front of the race book

Moonee Valley Council is encouraging residents to donate their time and become a volunteer. Chief executive Neville Smith says the council has relied on the contribution of its volunteers. The council has about 400 dedicated volunteers who have spent 16,000 hours helping out in a number of ways around the community. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Their work has resulted in around $316,000 in savings to ratepayers.â&#x20AC;? There are many volunteer opportunities within the council that fit a wide range of interests and time availability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Volunteering is also a great way to gain personal rewards, including developing a broad range of new skills. Most importantly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance to make a meaningful, positive impact on your community.â&#x20AC;? For more information on volunteering opportunities at the council, call 9243 8888 or go to mvcc.vic.gov.au/volunteers.

Safety measures not needed: VicRoads BY EUGENE BENSON AIRPORT West residents fear it’s just a matter of time before a fatality occurs on Fullarton Road if action is not taken to improve its safety. An inappropriately positioned bus stop, speeding cars, a lack of either speed humps or safety rail, and no provision for heavy pedestrian traffic have been raised by residents as major concerns. Ed Castenmiller, who lives on the corner of Coniston Street and Fullarton Road, said a neighbour had even left the area after a car crashed into their house after speeding around a corner. The road is a route off the Calder Freeway, on the way into the suburban streets of Airport West. ‘‘You take your life in your own hands each time you cross the road,’’ Mr Castenmiller said. ‘‘We need speed humps or rumble strips. Cars fly along . . . more signs just wouldn’t work.’’ A bus stop on the road has also come under criticism as there is no safe way to cross the road to get to it and no barrier or protection from

traffic for people waiting for a bus. The Bus Association of Victoria has supported resident requests to upgrade the road to accommodate a safer stop. Niddrie MP Ben Carroll has also joined the cause, organising a meeting in August between VicRoads, Moonee Valley Council and residents at the site. Mr Carroll said he had had several calls about the street since being elected in March. He has also written to Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder advocating for the relocation of the freeway noise wall to remove the blind spot and enable the installation of a disability-compliant bus stop and pedestrian crossing connecting the two stops on Fullarton Road. ‘‘I’ve travelled on that stretch of road hundreds of times, but it is not until you get out of your vehicle and witness school kids disembarking from the bus then crossing Fullarton Road where there is no available footpath or pedestrian crossing that you witness how fraught with danger this strip of road really is.’’ VicRoads acting regional director metro north

west Anita Curnow said it had conducted a review of the operation of Fullarton Road and had considered the request for installing guard rail, speed humps and rumble strips. ‘‘While VicRoads acknowledges the concerns of the community, the review concluded that these measures are not considered to be appropriate at this location. ‘‘The review identified that speeding may be

contributing to safety concerns and VicRoads has notified the Victoria Police of these, as it is the body responsible for enforcing speed limits.’’ Ms Curnow said VicRoads had recently installed a 50km/h speed limit sign to reinforce the prevailing speed limit and an advance ‘pedestrians warning’ sign to alert drivers of the possible presence of pedestrians.

Council judge and jury on parking fines MOONEE Valley Council has come under fire for its ‘‘ignorance’’ of the serious parking issues in Ascot Vale. Roseberry Street resident Marcus White was recently fined for a parking infringement in his own street. Mr White said that on weekends during the Royal Melbourne Show it was near-impossible to get a park on his street, despite having a resident parking permit. On September 23, just after noon, after not being able to find a parking spot he gained permission to park across a neighbour’s driveway momentarily so he could take his young child

inside. The neighbour was soon leaving and said he could take his park once he left. While Mr White was still standing in his hallway, a Moonee Valley parking inspector, despite having the scenario fully explained to him by another Roseberry Street resident, fined Mr White $141 for parking incorrectly. Mr White requested the council review the fine, but last week he was notified a review of his case had failed to change anything and the fine would stand. A frustrated Mr White said the council, through allowing show parking to dominate Ascot Vale, and through approving so many

renovations and new homes...service and experience that counts

apartment complexes in the suburb had created a parking nightmare. ‘‘It has been an ongoing issue on this street. Residents have had discussions with councillors, sent petitions; it doesn’t make any difference. ‘‘On a weekend you are basically locked in your own houses. If you go out when you come back you just can’t get a park. ‘‘This council is all about surveys and nice talk, but nothing ever really gets done. ‘‘The council has created this problem. Now they are fining the residents who live with it — it’s blatant revenue raising.’’

allot papers for this year’s council election are expected to be in this week’s mail — our opportunity to judge the council’s performance these past four years and to consider those who aspire to replace them. The outgoing council delivered its report card in Valley View, pointing to 66 specific achievements. Quite an impressive list of strategies and master plans, which include public input on what we want Moonee Valley to be in 2035. Whilst all the topics have relevance, the most important was the work completed on a municipal parking strategy to address major traffic issues. This council appointed a CEO,

Neville Smith, in November 2011. It got that appointment right. Surveys suggest we are satisfied with the council. It gave us new branding for the city, $86 million was spent on capital works and we had the chance to have our say on 200 separate projects through community consultation. We welcomed the Afton street conservation wetland, the refurbished East Keilor leisure centre, the Men’s Shed, the new Avondale Heights library and learning centre, the Debney Park Playspace, Moonee Ponds Creek transformation, the Milleara Learning and Development Centre for children and much more. Council gave themselves a big tick for their work. Deservedly so.

It wasn’t all good news But the council has been less transparent on a number of major issues — happy to give us the good news, but reluctant to communicate the bad. It relentlessly pursued one of its own who was said to have written false emails

and letters to media. This issue dragged on for more than a year — first to the local government department which said there had been no breach of the Act, but recommended the issue be referred to the Municipal Association of Victoria’s Code of conduct panel. Armed with reams of documents, and after briefing legal eagles, the panel threw the charges out in 90 minutes. Lack of evidence they said. The council has constantly refused requests to table the report, nor will it tell us how much this futile investigation cost and there has been no admission that the allegations were baseless. The council has also revealed very little about its purchase of a Niddrie property for which it paid an inflated $1.46million. The house had initially gone on the market for less than $1million, but after initially deciding not to buy it (to knock it down and create new parking spaces for Keilor Road traders) there was a change of heart. In the meantime it had been sold to a developer — hardly good governance.

Cracks appeared Meanwhile a councillor has been charged with an alleged breach of the Local Government Act over entitlement payments alleged to have been paid to the former CEO, Rasiah Dev. Not a matter for public debate until the court processes have been completed. What we do know is that someone leaked the information. Earlier this year a senior staff member resigned following an investigation into misappropriation of council funds, with the matter handed over to Victoria Police. And last year a whistleblower told Lore that some staff at a local transfer station had been on-selling white goods and other appliances previously discarded by residents. Council investigated these claims but was unable to find any evidence. The cracks haven’t surfaced publicly but it has been a testing time privately.

The final word. . . Don’t vote for the best candidate. Vote for the one who will do the least harm.

At times of crisis, faith in teamwork

Golden moments Moonee Valley Council’s aged and disability services team hosted a special luncheon to celebrate residents who have marked, or will soon reach, 90 years of age and over. The luncheon for Moonee Valley’s ‘living legends’ was at The Brass Tavern in Moonee Ponds. Many attending had already cracked ‘the ton’. Pictured are Flemington’s Elsbeth Norden, who is fighting fit at 102; North Essendon’s Rita Smith, also 102; and Essendon’s Eileen Chalker, who celebrated her 100th birthday on August 11.

You’re invited to...

YOUNG people from a diversity of faiths and backgrounds were trained in emergency relief management in Ascot Vale last week. Co-ordinated by youth network InterAction, the training program is designed to ensure there is an adequate supply of counsellors from various faiths should they be needed in a large-scale emergency. Eventually, a volunteer ‘youth rapid response team’ will be created that can be dispatched to emergency situations across the state. Volunteers in the program — run in partnership with Praxis Christian youth network and the Islamic Council of Victoria — are trained to provide physical and and psychological aid. The program is using The Cave youth centre in Ascot Vale as its base. Organisers hope to attract volunteers from across Moonee Valley. Activist priest Bob Maguire, who has lent his support to the cause, said the launch of the group showed religions could work together to do something good. ‘‘I’ve been talking about the need for religions to work together for years — it’s great to finally see it happening.’’

Potted insight on gardens BY EUGENE BENSON THE popular My Smart Garden workshop returns next Tuesday with the focus on showing Moonee Valley gardeners how they can make the most from small amounts of water over summer and beyond. The workshop, dubbed Water Harvesting and Reuse for Gardeners, will teach water-conscious residents about garden design for hot and dry conditions and watering techniques they can use throughout summer. Ascot Vale resident Anne Heyes, who has already gone to great lengths to ensure her garden is as waterefficient as possible, is pleased to see the council-co-ordinated My Smart Garden events continue. ‘‘I’ve got quite a few rainwater tanks and a rain garden [a garden that filters storm water]. ‘‘We changed our garden so it could tolerate the drought. ‘‘We tend to water the food plants, fruit and vegies, but other than that

EVENT DETAILS ■ Water harvesting and reuse for gardeners: Tuesday, October 16, 6.30pm-8.30pm, Avondale Heights Library and Learning Centre, 69-79 Military Road, Avondale Heights. ■ Seed-saving, swapping and endof-year feedback: Saturday, November 24, 10am-1pm (includes lunch), Moonee Ponds Bowling Club, Queens Park, 776 Mt Alexander Road, Moonee Ponds.

the garden survives on rainwater.’’ On November 24, a seed swap will be held at the Moonee Valley Bowling Club. It will provide the chance to meet other gardeners, learn about seed saving and provide feedback on the My Smart Garden program.

Moonee Valley chief executive Neville Smith says that despite the rainy spell, hot and dry weather is expected to be just around the corner. “Weather experts are predicting a return to dry conditions, so it’s the right time to plan for the hot weather,” Mr Smith said. “But Moonee Valley gardeners need not despair. We can still grow our own food through smarter garden design and water use. “Also, as the year comes to a close, we are looking to the more than 150 participants to tell us what they think of the program. My Smart Garden is a joint, twoyear project between Hobsons Bay and Moonee Valley Councils. Funding is from the Victorian government’s sustainability fund and the project is managed by Sustainability Victoria. Garden great: Ascot Vale’s Anne Heyes has a garden that flourishes even during drought. Picture: Ari Hatzis

Have your say on Amendment C128 Implementation of the Neighbourhood Character Study Council has adopted: • A Neighbourhood Character Study • Neighbourhood Character Precinct Profiles These documents aim to strengthen the planning tools available to help ensure development reflects the character of a local area. The study also identified Significant Character Areas (SCA) small areas across the municipality which may warrant additional planning protection.

The next step of this project is to undertake another round of consultation on the parts of the documents that are proposed to be included or referenced in the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme and the two planning tools which would enable the implementation of the SCAs. Have your say until 8 November by sending in a submission to Council. For more details visit mvcc.vic.gov.au/ncs or call Council’s Strategic Planning team on 9243 8888.

PROFILE ●

Telltale signs BY ROBERT FEDELE he first sentence in Sue Cromie’s new book on her battle with mental illness sums it up. It details an overdose on pills when she was 30 that sent her into the liver transplant ward of the Austin Hospital. ‘‘But somehow I miraculously recovered and lived to tell the story,’’ the 44-year-old says candidly. Her autobiography, Cry Out Loud is a personal insight into her battle with bipolar disorder, depression and borderline personality disorder. As a girl she knew she was different, experiencing serious bouts of depression. It was only in her 20s that Sue was officially diagnosed with bipolar disorder. It brought relief more than anything else. The period during her mid-20s is a little blurry. There were plenty of down times. She admits to trying to take her life on several occasions. It culminated with the overdose, but thankfully it was also the catalyst for change. Over the past decade she has been focusing on getting better.

T

‘‘A lot of therapy and the right choice of drugs,’’ she says when asked how she got through. Sue, a qualified nurse, says writing the book provided her with an outlet to express her ordeal. She started writing 10 years ago and only recently returned to penning her thoughts. In it, she details her episodes of depression, mania and psychosis. ‘‘It’s some of the best therapy I’ve ever had . . .writing the book,’’ she says. ‘‘I put it down for 10 years and took it up recently. I decided I was at the right stage in my life to do it.’’ Quizzed on what it feels like to have finally finished the book, she says it’s been fulfilling. ‘‘It’s liberating really. I can’t think of a better word than that. ‘‘It’s about giving some insight into mental illness and to be able to understand what individuals go through.’’ Sue believes public perceptions of mental illness have improved over the years, but that there is still a long way to go. ‘‘I need a lot of encouragement to keep moving forward. There is a lot of stigma out there and

Cry for help: Sue Cromie has battled mental illness for more than two decades. I’m afraid people will judge me.’’ For now though, she is just happy being healthy, and wants to stay that way. Her immediate wish for the future is ‘‘just to stay well’’. ‘‘And staying out of hospital for as long as I can.’’

Sophie’s world PICTURE: SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

One day when Sophie woke up the world had slightly less colour in it. She tells Robert Fedele her engrossing story of what happened next.

October 7-13 is Mental Health Week, which coincides with World Mental Health Day on October 10. Details: mentalhealthvic.org.au [ 12 ] MOONEE VALLEY WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

October 9, 2012


INSIDESTORY

T

hey had spoken about it for months. On and off and then constantly. Day by day the conversations began to grow in intensity and certainty. From the beginning, Sophie had absorbed and accepted the messages, but only ever reluctantly. Now it seemed inevitable. A date had been set and was fast approaching. And then she made the call that would save her life. ‘‘At one point I just said to myself, If I don’t tell somebody this is happening right now I’m going to be dead next week. And that’s not what I really want from life. I don’t want to throw my life away at 15. Someone needs to come and help me.’’ Sophie is sitting cross-legged in a worn grey lounge chair in a tiny interview room at Orygen Youth Health in Parkville, a leading mental health service for people aged 15-25. She sports ripped black stockings, a designer white T-shirt and a black hoodie. She’s neither shy nor confident, and answers questions with composure and intelligence. When she smiles she reveals a line of sparkly braces. At 16, Sophie seems every bit the normal teenager. But in the next half hour she reveals her battle with depression and anxiety and the deterioration which led to psychosis and voices in her head urging her to take her own life. There were no warning signs as such, Sophie explains. She grew up in Williamstown with her two parents and older sister and attended a private girls school in Melbourne. The signs of depression and anorexia surfaced when she was 11 or 12, coupled with bullying at school and an innate sense of feeling different and unworthy. But Sophie is still uncertain about the specific triggers that led to her feeling unwell. ‘‘It was just sort of one day I woke up and the world had slightly less colour in it and I just wasn’t happy any more.’’ When Sophie was 12 she began seeing counsellors to try to unravel the reasons behind her ‘‘sickness’’. ‘‘I would just sit there and refuse to speak,” she recalls. “I just refused to let the help in and it was never going to work for me. ‘‘Some places made me feel like I needed to feel ashamed of what was going on in my head.’’ Even family and friends were brushed aside as Sophie felt more and more like an outcast. ‘‘I did have support,” she says, “but it didn’t feel like it. I became quite blinded to all the good things in the world as well as my relationship with my parents and my friends. I would slowly withdraw and push everyone away. I was on this mission to make myself sick without realising it.’’ In 2010, when she was 14 and in year 9 at

high school, Sophie started an online blog which she describes as a personal diary of rants from her thoughts and emotions. Writing was her one outlet, and it did plenty of good. Some of the bullying stopped, Sophie says, because people realised ‘‘there was a reason I was like that’’. At one stage the blog had 4000 weekly readers. More than anything, though, it gave her a chance to reach out. Sophie doesn’t remember when the conversations began. But she remembers when it all came to a head. It was in the middle of last year that the voices and visions became stronger and more frightening. They were telling her to kill herself. And they’d even given her a date to do it. Sophie finally summoned the courage to contact Headspace, Australia’s national youth mental health foundation. Headspace referred Sophie to Orygen and a doctor visited her for two weeks before the ‘‘date’’. On the day she was meant to kill herself she was under hospital supervision at Orygen’s inpatient unit in Footscray. ‘‘The support there was really great. It didn’t become easy ... at all. But I gave my trust to Orygen and committed to making myself better.’’ Sophie began her recovery by going on antipsychotic medication for six months but found that wasn’t for her. ‘‘It was working but I didn’t enjoy it,” she says. “I didn’t like the way that I felt on it.’’ After increased support from doctors and counsellors, Sophie slowly started getting better. Three months later the voices disappeared. It’s been a year since the psychosis. She is no longer on medication but visits Orygen once a week to talk to her case manager. She also visits a separate doctor to monitor her weight. She moved out of home six months ago and is living in a share-house in Footscray and working in retail. While her period of darkness is by no means over, she feels a sense of the tide turning. Does she feel herself again? ‘‘Definitely. I sort of described it through my writing at the time as watching myself lose reality. I knew the things I was hearing weren’t real, but I was so terrified of what would happen if I went against them. It was the worst torture in the world.’’ Through her involvement with Orygen, Sophie recently became part of its platform team, where young people who have used the service take a role in shaping how it can be improved for others. Youth participant co-ordinator Melissa Thurley says 25 young people in ‘platform’ contribute their experiences.

‘‘It’s really important for young people when they come to a service like this to know that their input and their feedback and their ideas can shape how we actually deal with the services for young people,’’ she says. Asked why she’s chosen an active role in helping others, Sophie says one of the major reasons was trying to change people’s perceptions. ‘‘I present myself now as a normal 16-yearold going about doing my thing and I think it’s really important for some people to realise that mental illness doesn’t define a person. It doesn’t set them apart. It doesn’t make them weird or abnormal. I’m just who I am and this is something that I’ve been through and this is how I got through it.’’ Rates of suicide in young men increased from the 1970s to the middle 1990s before declining. Rates for young women have been fairly steady. While the numbers of deaths and rates are relatively low, suicide is still the biggest cause of death in young people. In 2010, 24 per cent of all deaths among men aged 15-24 were due to suicide. For women, suicide comprised a higher proportion of total deaths in younger age groups compared with older age groups. ‘‘I think at the end of the day, statistics speak for themselves,’’ Thurley says. ‘‘We lose two and half thousand people every year and it averages out to something like six people every day. We need to talk about it. It’s horrific.’’ Sophie agrees and has no apprehension about talking about the taboo topic. A year on from her ‘‘episode’’ she feels lucky not to have become another statistic. ‘‘That was one of my driving forces for contacting Orygen, thinking that I don’t want to just be that girl that killed herself at 15 or 13 or 14 or whatever. I wish somebody had said that this is a normal thing and what hundreds and thousands of people go through every day.’’ It’s both scary and heartening to think that someone as young as Sophie can go through so much and come out the other side. Still 16, she has her life ahead of her and dreams of becoming a journalist; something combining her love of music and writing. She has found ways to deal with her bad days and not breaking down over the slightest things. I ask her if she’s afraid of the future, of becoming ill again? ‘‘Not really. The future can’t possibly be as bad as my past. But I wouldn’t change anything. It’s sort of made me who I am.’’ • October 7-13 is Mental Health Week, which coincides with World Mental Health Day on October 10. For more information, visit mentalhealthvic.org.au

The world is a dark and heavy place tonight. Where smiles are extinct. The only truth is in the lies, and everything is broken. The empty streets are cold and littered with broken hearts. As the wind carries away her weak, soft sobs. The loneliness is cold the air is dead. The cobblestone streets crumble away with each step Love is not a villain and I am not a hero but we battle and battle, fighting ‘till the death. This road has no way out, nor a happy ending. There is just me, And my breaking heart. Broken, by Sophie, 2010

A fresh approach is needed with fresh councillors who can work together, with state and federal government.

Name: Jan Chantry Age: 60 Occupation: Executive assistant to Dean, RMIT School of Media and Communication Party affiliation: ALP Resides: Buckley ward Biggest issue: I am concerned with the predominance of multi-storey developments in residential areas driven developers. We must scrutinise new state government planning zones.

Candidates pitch their message to voters

Name: Ange Kenos Age: 56 Occupation: Civil celebrant Party affiliation: ALP Resides: Did not respond Biggest issue: In these tougher economic times it is essential that your councillors fight to keep rates down and spend every dollar wisely. My record proves that I have consistently argued strongly against rate rises, and that I have always sought to bring your issues to Council.

Name: Sav Sardo Age: 49 Occupation: Customer service officer Party affiliation: Independent Resides: Airport West Biggest issue: Promote guidance and direction to small businesses rather than restrictions and provide initiatives for new and cheaper energy sources to operate businesses, and to promote family unity and values by supporting the availability of services and facilities.

LAWRENCE

Name: John Sipek Age: 48 years Occupation: Aircraft maintenance engineer Party affiliation: ALP Resides: Keilor East Biggest issue: Inappropriate unit development needs greater controls and must incorporate the views from local residents and community groups.

Name: Andrea Surace Occupation: Small Business Owner Party Affiliation: Independent Resides: Avondale Heights Biggest issue: I would like to see a ‘Neighbourhood and/or Safety House’ re-established for the safety of our children.

COUNCIL ELECTION 2012

From the soapbox, a welter of ideas on

Name: Cam Nation Age: 29 Occupation: Business owner and swim coach Party affiliation: Independent Resides: Essendon Biggest issue: The heavy influence of political parties is one of the key factors holding back our great municipality. I believe it’s time to elect a council free of party politics, where decisions are made in the best interests of the residents and not for political gain. Myrnong ward needs an independent voice, and I am ready to be that voice.

Name: Rick Bottiglieri Age: 44 Occupation: IT manager Party affiliation: Independent. Resides: Moonee Ponds Biggest local issue: Moonee Valley is a city in transition and is changing, expanding and growing. The biggest issue facing us is the over-development of residential areas. Moonee Valley has seen some dubious planning decisions that have resulted in areas such as Mt Alexander Road, Flemington Road and Union Road gridlocked for most of the day.

Name: Richard Keech Age: 49 Occupation: Energy efficiency engineer Party affiliation: The Greens Resides: Essendon Biggest local issue: The council is there to support our community, through parks, libraries, aged care, kindergartens, sports clubs and more. Councillors must represent community, not vested interests. Residents and traders need councillors who will answer their calls and emails and represent their views in decision-making.

Name: Jim Cusack Age: 57 Occupation: Program advisor Victims Services, Department of Justice Party affiliation: ALP (nonendorsed) Resides: Ascot Vale Biggest issue: We need to balance the drive to higher-density living and stop inappropriate development. Any development of the racecourse, the Moonee Ponds retail area or Mount Alexander Road should only proceed if it benefits residents.

NOW OPEN!

Name: Frank Dinoto Age: 50 Occupation: Restaurant manager Party affiliation: ALP Resides: Moonee Ponds Biggest issue: The redevelopment of Moonee Valley Racing Club. Should it go ahead, this will have major effects on residents who will have to live with the repercussions — additional traffic congestion, a loss of sporting history, abuse of the architectural landscape, and less street parking. I will voice these concerns to the council.

Name: Miriam Gillis Age: 56 Occupation: Workplace trainer Party affiliation: ALP Resides: Moonee Ponds Biggest issue: I am proud of our community and I don’t want to see it spoiled by developers, traffic congestion or cuts to essential services. It is important that we elect an experienced candidate, someone with a proven track record.

When east meets inner-west SUNG’S KITCHEN Address: 118 Franklin Street, West Melbourne Contact: 9329 2636 Hours: Daily, noon-3pm; 6-10pm Licensed

HILARY McNEVIN EATING OUT ung’s Kitchen is on the west side of the CBD, just down the road from the Queen Vic Market and is a good spot to keep in mind if you’re shopping in the area and want some good Chinese on your way home. The room is heavily decorated with bright, multi-coloured paper lanterns and lots of artwork depicting Chinese characters.Tables are simply dressed with white cloths, a plate, chopsticks and a small vase with flowers. It’s these details that make you feel comfortable and in a place that cares about what they do. Yum cha is available every day and there is an extensive a la carte menu to choose from. The beauty of it is that you can order from both menus, which we did on our visit. There’s a broad and varied choice on the yum cha list which you order and they bring to you, without the trolleys you might see at a bigger restaurant.

S

Salt-and-pepper chicken strips ($5) are a generous portion of fried chicken with the punchy addition of chilli, and the spring rolls ($7.80) are straightforward and very crisp. The service is very friendly, nothing is too much trouble (even a spilled drink) and the delivery of the dishes is well-timed. The dumplings are delicious; chilli pork dumplings ($5.50) are presented as four small parcels doused in dark soy and a warming mild chilli spice, while the prawn dumplings ($6.90) arrive as three in a bright green skin, steamed and plump with meaty prawns. The pork siu mai ($5.50) are firm, fleshy bites of steamed, seasoned pork mince. We couldn’t help but order the Peking duck from the a la carte menu (6 pieces $33), it’s sweet savoury and delicious, fleshy duck is combined with luscious hoisin sauce, cucumber and spring onion — it’s a standout to a great meal. For all the Chinese restaurants we have in Melbourne, Sung’s Kitchen, in an unassuming part of the city, is well worth the visit.

Hidden treat: Sung’s Kitchen provides excellent quality Chinese food including dim sum and and Yum Cha. Picture: Darren Howe

Winners by a nose Sticking to the same old wines? Ben Thomas has some changes in mind tuck in a wine rut? Is shiraz losing its allure, or do you stick with sav blanc but would really like to try something else? Well, do I have a column for you. I’ve had a few friends ask me recently to recommend alternative wines to the ones they go for every time they’re in a bar or a bottleshop. The world of wine can be intimidating at times, and when you’re spending upwards of $20 on a bottle, it’s easy to play it safe by choosing something you know you’ll enjoy rather than take a risk and end up with a bottle you don’t like. Rather than recommend a few obscure grape varieties that will have you spending the best part of next Saturday tracking down, there are plenty of mainstream ones that are similar to what you may default to every time you pour a glass.

G4992121AK-a2Oct©FCNVIC

S

Crisp and light-bodied whites: Sauvignon blanc is the most popular white wine variety in the country, but if my sav-loving friends are any guide to its popularity, it won’t hold that mantle forever. They’re all looking for alternatives. Major retailers have evidence that shows they’re not alone either. Their stats show that women in particular are switching from sav blanc to pinot grigio at a rapid rate. I reckon they’re missing a trick by moving straight to grigio, a wine that can be utterly refreshing and delicious but is also capable of true blandness. Closer to sav blanc in style, but with more complexity, are the highly aromatic grapes riesling and gewu¨rztraminer. Albarino (pictured) from the north of Spain and the Italian pair fiano and vermentino are also worth seeking.

Medium-bodied textural whites: If you’re a little like me and keep reaching for the chardonnay, a white from France’s Rhoˆne Valley or a barrel-fermented pinot gris makes a nice change. Light-to-medium reds: I’ll agree that pinot noir is a wine you’re unlikely to ever tire of, but the vibrant gamay is a delicious alternative. It’s the grape in Beaujolais, a relatively inexpensive light red when compared with its pinot noir-based neighbour in France, Burgundy. Always think cabernet sauvignon when you think red? Try it in a blend or reach for a straight merlot from time to time. Medium-to-full-bodied reds: Feel free to substitute grenache or mourvedre for a shiraz – or a blend of all three in a GSM – or a tempranillo-based wine from Spain’s Rioja region next time you’re thinking about shiraz.

Goodwill adds up for people’s bank Successful customers and successful communities make a successful bank, reports Carole Levy hould a tree come crashing down into your yard or onto your house during one of Melbourne’s many storms, you may have reason to thank Strathmore Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank when an SES crew arrives to help. Earlier this year, the bank gave the Essendon SES unit $50,000 towards buying a new four-wheel drive to use in help or rescue situations. This is one small part of more than $3 million of contributions the Strathmore branch has made to the Moonee Valley community over 11 years. Branch manager Phil Stewart says this is what his bank is all about. ‘‘We have a rock-solid commitment to helping the community in terms of dollars and cents where they’re needed. In fact, half of the profits we generate at a local level are ploughed back into our local area,’’ Mr Stewart explains. ‘‘It’s down to a simple equation: the more people in the community become our customers, the more money local groups and organisations get back.’’ Born and raised in Bendigo, Mr Stewart started his career there at Bendigo Bank 11 years ago and he’s been manager of Strathmore Community Bank for the past two. He says it wasn’t until he moved

The support has included a large community grant to the Glenroy Special School, funding for a number of primary schools and assisting with expansion of the Children’s Centre. The help Mr Stewart cites as having possibly the biggest impact is the annual sponsorship of four intensivecare cots in the neonatal ward of Royal Children’s Hospital; it takes care of critically ill newborns. ‘‘If our support here can help save even one innocent baby and help make a difference to the family, then we see the money as extraordinarily well spent.’’ In summary, Mr Stewart declares: ‘‘Successful customers and successful communities create a successful bank, but only in that order.’’

7 HEAD STREET, STRATHMORE From the moment you plant your first step inside the lavish interior to the very last step you take before diving into the sublime in-ground swimming pool, opulence and grandeur greet every step inside this entertainer’s paradise. A striking interior impresses from the outset with its stunning arrangement of casual and formal living settings that lend themselves to a host of living options. Large family living featuring a spectacular open fireplace set against an exposed stone wall is grand in every sense, so too is the fully sheltered alfresco that’s also warmed by a similarly spectacular open fireplace. Stylish kitchen with large island bench and Butler’s pantry stands proud in the heartbeat of the home, but to really impress the guests, there’s the Gold Class experience inside the five-star home theatre.

Cold-blooded passion Reptile wrangler Adam Sapiano is rapt, and wrapped, with his career, writes Rebecca Miller

A

‘‘There’s courses available in venomous snake-handling recommended for people who want to take on that job. They’re also required to be licensed by the Department of Sustainability and Environment.’’ Adam is a wildlife controller who covers most of Melbourne’s western suburbs, but he says he’ll travel anywhere to catch a snake. ‘‘Calls generally come from someone who has found a snake in their backyard or inside the house. Once I’ve caught the snake, it’s relocated to a safe environment for the public and the snake’s sake.’’ Adam says there’s no typical week for him, but as snake catching is seasonal, once the weather warms up he can get up to six calls a day. ‘‘I have calls for tiger snakes in bedrooms, toilets, front and

backyards, roofs and on the beach. I’ve been called out at 2am to catch what ended up being a rubber snake.’’ Career highlights include catching five snakes in one day. ‘‘One of the most memorable days was catching two tiger snakes, one in Hoppers Crossing, the other in Werribee, and three copperheads in Kyneton, Woodend and Lancefield.’’ Adam says releasing snakes into their natural environment is the most rewarding aspect. ‘‘It’s good to know I’ve done my bit to help keep both the public and the snakes safe from harm.’’ Despite his hobby turning into a career, Adam spends his spare time caring for a private reptile collection. ‘‘I keep pythons, elapids (venomous snakes), monitors (goannas) and dragons.’’

s a child, Adam Sapiano loved being in touch with Australian fauna, but he never dreamed he’d work with its inhabitants up close. ‘‘Growing up, I was always an outdoors kind of kid. I spent a lot of time down the river looking for blue tongued lizards, but I never thought I’d grow up as a snake catcher,’’ Adam says. Working with reptiles daily requires special skills and courses, but for Adam it’s all been worth it. ‘‘Snake catching started as a hobby. I’ve kept venomous and nonvenomous snakes as pets for a number of years and I became a snake catcher three years ago. ‘‘At the start, I would catch snakes for people on my days off, but now it’s a full-time service.

ange Rover Evoque is an indication that the British 4WD maker understands the reality of the so-called softroader vehicle. For many years, Range Rover and its parent company, Land Rover, insisted on making only genuine 4WDs. The burgeoning compact SUV or softroader market initially saw Land Rover moving down in size with the Freelander. But it retained the sort of off-road ability Land Rover owners deemed essential. Land Rover then displayed a stunninglooking concept vehicle that eventually became the Range Rover Evoque. Our road test vehicle was a four-door Evoque with a turbo-diesel engine and the newly introduced 2WD system. Evoque’s 2WD was launched midway through 2012 as a lower-cost option for buyers who have no plans to take their little Range Rovers off-road. The engineers have given the 2WD Evoque the same ground clearance as the 4WD, so it can tackle dirt tracks and the like. It also

Boot space is good. The four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine in the Evoque we drove had decent performance without too much turbo lag. Fuel consumption around town was impressively low at seven to nine litres per hundred kilometres. Range Rover Evoque’s use of 2WD may anger some purists, but the 2WD option makes a lot of sense.

MOTORING ●

Audi’s hottest machine unleashed Ewan Kennedy and Derek Ogden road test the stunning RS 5 ate last year the Australian motoring media was let loose in a range of coming new Audi models, including a special limited edition of the RS 5 coupe. The standard variation of the Audi RS 5 has been our review car all week and, like its ‘limited’ brother, it’s a high-performance German machine guaranteed to bring a big smile to the face of any keen driver. The tall, single-piece radiator looks as though it takes in more cool air than the Vienna Boys Choir in an Alpine concert. The 19 or 20-inch wheels wouldn’t look out of place on a Ben Hur chariot; twin elliptical exhaust ports look about the size of a ship’s funnels and create a stirring fanfare from the booming V8. A worked version of Audi’s 4.2-litre V8 engine produces a stirring 331kW of power and the RS 5 takes advantage of Audi’s seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission and quattro allwheel drive with self-locking centre differential and torque sharing on all four wheels. In addition, there’s a sport differential for variable distribution of power between the rear wheels. All of this geared technology is enough to get the Audi RS 5 to 100km/h from rest in just 4.5 seconds, no mean feat for a vehicle weighing on the high side of two tonnes if a couple of big Aussie blokes are on board. Top speed is normally electronically limited to 250 kilometres an hour. We are told 280km/h is available on request to Audi if the engineers there are confident in your driving ability. Top speed is

L

irrelevant off the race track in Australia, but the smooth and instant power delivery adds driver confidence when overtaking on country roads or merging onto motorways — perhaps even for the pleasure some of us enjoy in accelerating away from traffic lights to get clear of the pack. Brakes feature internally ventilated discs. Callipers are painted high-gloss black, the front units having eight pistons each and sporting RS logos. Brakes are hooked up to the usual active safety systems such as ABS with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist. Audi Drive Select is standard and allows the driver to select between three modes — Comfort, Auto and Dynamic — changing the characteristics of steering, the S tronic transmission, throttle valves and exhaust sound valves. The electronic stability program with Sport mode can be deactivated, while an optional sport suspension-plus with dynamic ride control makes use of variable suspension damping, while high-performance brakes with front carbon fibre ceramic discs are also available as an option During our time with the ultra-hot Audi RS 5, fuel consumption ranged from 10.6 litres per 100 kilometres in highway cruising to 18-plus litres per 100 kilometres in stop/start city traffic. While high in their own right, these figures aren’t bad for a car with this sort of performance and indicate the efficiency of the big V8 powerplant. Audi has officially measured the latest RS 5 at an average of just 10.5 litres of fuel per 100 kilo-

Instant power: There’s no mistaking the sporting intent of the Audi RS 5 Coupe. metres. Reduced fuel consumption is, in part, due to a new electromechanical power steering. Instant response, positive feedback and sharp cornering are also welcome improvements. Stability is also improved by a spoiler in the rear hatch which deploys electronically at 120km/h or at the push of a button by the driver. A flat-bottomed steering wheel, now standard, adds a further sporting feel to the RS 5.

Modifications have been made to the layout of instruments and controls with the three-spoke, multifunction steering wheel dressed in perforated leather featuring new, more intuitive buttons and rollers. Audi RS 5 is a stunner of a coupe both in looks and actions, displaying all that Audi stands for in style and automotive technology. At $161,400 plus on-roads, it’s not cheap.

Golf through the years Ewan Kennedy in Wolfsburg, Germany, goes back in history couple of years back while attending the international launch of the Volkswagen Amarok pick-up in South Africa, I managed to score a test drive of an almost new, very old Volkswagen Golf. That seemingly contradictory drive was due to the fact that a model called the Volkswagen Golf Citi, a mildly upgraded Golf Mark 1, was still being built in South Africa as a low-cost option

A

New generation: The Golf Mk 6.

to the current generation Golfs it coincided with over many years. The VW Citi was sold over about 25 years after the first Golf was discontinued everywhere else and with upgrades to the mechanical systems to keep it up to date on driving and emissions regulations. In the meantime, Volkswagen has sold about 25 million Golfs, making it by far the most successful model ever produced. Volkswagen came up with a more formal arrangement for a number of Aussie journalists. We were in Germany to carry out the first road test reviews of the seventh generation Volkswagen Golf. We had arrived in the country of the car’s birth a few days ahead of the global launch, and Volkswagen brought several examples of previous generation Golfs from the company’s museum for us to look over in detail. The original Golf is significantly smaller than any of the other models. Although each new one, seemingly inevitably, is larger than the one it superseded, the size differences aren’t all that great. Some of the extra size in the newer Golfs is taken up to provide occupant, and later pedes-

Where it began: The original Golf Mk 1. trian, safety so the interior of the older models isn’t as much smaller as you might anticipate. Again, the Golf Mk 1 has quite a difference in styling to the ones that succeeded it, with sharp lines and a real character in the shape. From the Golf 2 onwards, there’s an obvious similarity in appearance on the outside. The one feature that all cars, including the Mk 1, do have in common is the distinctive dog-leg

shape of the C-pillar. Indeed, Volkswagen designers now feel duty bound to carry on the tradition from the almost 40-year-old design. Cleverly, interior style in each model follows a similar theme so that a potential buyer of a new Golf immediately has a feeling of familiarity. The instrument layout stays the same, with a pair of large dials for speed and, in older cars, a clock; in more recent ones a tacho.

Rain thwarts Bombers’ hopes

ABERFELDIE-ST Johns beat both Strathmore Heights and the weekend weather as the only Luscombe Shield team to get a result in round one. The North West Metro Cricket Association was hit by washouts but Boeing Reserve got a full game as the visitors won by 30 runs. Rislan Rifai scored 79 and Damon Brohaska was 48 not out as Aberfeldie-St Johns posted 4-193 off 40 overs against the division newcomers. Strathmore Heights was dominant in winning promotion to the top grade last season but started poorly, losing 3-14. Joel Kolep (65) and Andrew Stephens (32) shared a 92-run stand for the fourth wicket but Stephens’ departure was the first in a collapse of 5-26. The tail wagged briefly but Strathmore Heights was all out for 163 in the 37th over. Buckley Park got to 0-63 against Gladstone Park before rain hit and was the only other game in the division to see any action. In Vic Kyte Shield, Burnside Springs’ David Mardini produced the star performance of the weekend with 8-15 in his team’s 78-run win against Craigieburn. In Keith Stringer Shield, Maribyrnong Park-St Marys started the season with a win, making 4-142 to chase down Gladstone Park’s 6-137. Sean Eborall (3-19) and Jonathon Grant (60) were stat leaders for the combine. — Teo Pellizzeri

Rinks roar

WINDY Hill was not playable for long enough to get an opening-day result in Victorian Premier Cricket after a promising Essendon start on Saturday. Rain ended play after just 23 overs of the western derby between the Bombers and Footscray-Edgewater. Essendon was enjoying a promising start under new coach Brendan Joyce, having reduced Footscray-Edgewater to 4-63 when rain arrived. Play was abandoned at Windy Hill, leaving both sides the loser on the ladder given six of the nine premier fixtures for the weekend delivering a result. Louis Cameron claimed 2-13 from his opening spell of seven overs while strike partner Steven Reid took 1-13. Mitchell Johnstone was the other Essendon wicket-taker with 1-9. The Bombers will go in search of a first win in another one-dayer this weekend away at Shepley Oval against Dandenong. The second XI did reach a result but not a favourable one as Footscray-Edgewater chased down the Bombers’ 7-176 with 7-178 in reply. The Bulldogs reached the target with four overs to spare. Zaheer Hussain (43) and Karl Mayne (48) topscored and shared the only 50-run partnership of the Bombers innings, while Daniel Slevison (6-35) was the Bombers’ main success with the ball.

ESSENDON roared to start the Bowls Victoria premier division season on Saturday while archrival Moonee Ponds suffered an opening-day defeat. The Bombers flexed their muscles against Lalor with a 21-shot win, while Moonee Ponds fell 11 short against Melbourne. Peter Loe was Essendon’s big winner with a 26-13 rink in the Bombers’ 16-80 to 2-59 victory. Moonee Ponds had a rink winner in Mark Jacobsen but other leading bowlers Brett Spurr and Shane Fordham were both beaten in the 16-78 to 2-67 loss. In Div 1 Sec 1, Moonee Valley (16-92) comfortably defeated Fitzroy Victoria (2-60) while Strathmore (14-86) downed Ivanhoe (4-78) and Essendon 2 (17-81) snared the bulk of the points against Richmond Union (1-73). In Div 2 Sec 1, Flemington/Kensington (16-90) proved too good for Port Melbourne (2-68). In Div 2 Sec 2, Buckley Park (2-65) went down to Montmorency (16-79) and Moonee Valley 2 (0-58) lost to Broadmeadows (18-104) but Moonee Ponds 2 (16-72) to West Coburg (2-68) had a win. In Div 3 Sec 2, Aberfeldie (0-57) was swept by Fitzroy Victoria 1 (18-94) while Maribyrnong Park (16-112) proved too strong for Gladstone Park (2-54). Clifton Park (4-76) lost to Moonee Ponds 3 (14-77). In Div 5 Sec 2, Doutta Galla (16-82) defeated Maribyrnong Park 2 (2-64).

Fast and furious: Essendon’s Louis Cameron bowls in his opening spell before rain intervened. In third XI, Essendon won by four wickets with four balls to spare. Footscray-Edgewater posted 6-178 batting first with Robert Batch (2-33) best of the Bombers’ bowlers. Batch (41) and Daniel Starvis (77 not out) then top-scored as Essendon reached 6-179 off 40.2 overs in reply.

In Fourth XI, Essendon (100 all out) rattled Footscray-Edgewater defending a small total but could not prevent a four-wicket defeat. Liam Portelli (3-16) sparked a mid-innings collapse of 5-15 but Footscray-Edgewater recovered from 6-65 to reach 6-101 off 38 overs.

Hard work pays off as new coach steps in BY TEO PELLIZZERI NEW Calder Cannons coach Andrew Jago walks into the job with a different currency than the aura of being an ex-AFL player. The senior lecturer in psychology at Victoria University will bring his own style of leadership and coaching to the Cannons after the departure of two-time TAC Cup premiership coach Martin Allison. Allison will head up the Vic Metro under-18 academy program after a Cannons stint filled with both team success and strong AFL draft results. Jago has been an assistant coach to Allison at Calder for the last two seasons and moves into the senior role with a diverse coaching history at development, VFL and local level. ‘‘It’s something I’ve worked towards, something I see as a genuine opportunity,’’ Jago said. ‘‘Marty has been a sensational mentor to me. I’ve certainly learnt a lot. I’m my own person and I’m different. ‘‘If I tried Marty’s style of coaching it wouldn’t work, the same as if he tried mine. But I think we have some similarities.’’ A Tasmanian, Jago played for Devonport and Sprayten before joining the air force. He then headed back to university to study psychology and play for University of Tasmania before moving to Victoria and turning his focus to coaching. Jago initially worked in the coaching ranks at the Northern Bullants, forging a strong partnership with Mark P. Williams. When Williams moved to Sandringham in 2004 and another mentor, Steve Daniel, moved to Seymour in the Goulburn Valley Football League, Jago found himself split between duties. Working in football around the clock paid off for Jago as he enjoyed premiership success at both clubs. Sandringham won a hat-trick of VFL premierships 2004-2006 while Seymour won 2005 and 2006 under Daniel before completing the threepeat in 2007 under a playing coach Jago worked with at the Northern Bullants, Bernie Haberman. ‘‘I had superb mentors . . . for most of those years Sandringham played on the Sunday so I spent a lot of time in the car,’’ Jago said. ‘‘I was in the box every Sunday with Sandringham and at Seymour Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.’’ Taking on head coaching roles with Seddon in the WRFL and Old Haileybury in the VAFA gave Jago a taste of the top job at suburban level, and from there the focus became the development paths. ‘‘Leon Harris, the Vic Country high performance manager, contacted me initially on the sports psych side of things. ‘‘I was fortunate enough to be appointed assistant to Nathan Buckley for the Vic Country under-16s. ‘‘From there, the development system was something I aspired to and I started putting things in place.’’ Juggling various roles such as assistant at Vic Country under-18 level, head of coach of the

Bright prospects: Andrew Jago is looking forward to coaching the Calder Cannons.

Jago takes his turn in the hot seat . . . Being a development coach ‘‘It is a slight adjustment from a winning philosophy to a development philosophy as you come into the TAC. ‘‘I’m definitely a competitive animal by nature. Certainly at Seymour and Sandringham the philosophy was about success. ‘‘I was lucky enough to be mentored by Steve (Daniel) and Mark Williams who had a development philosophy leading to success. ‘‘At Northern Bullants I believed Mark Williams coached as well there as I’ve ever seen him coach and his development of the players was exceptional.

‘‘I saw him take that to Sandringham and turn development into a winning culture.’’ Coaching style ‘‘My focus or my philosophy is basically offence wins games, defence wins championships. The first thing you need to develop is the defensive mindset. ‘‘A lot of players that come into the TAC system are already offensively minded, being in the upper echelon at their own clubs, so it’s about teaching them the balance between offence and defence. ‘‘Players need to know how important a role is, but also not pigeonholing someone and

leaving them in a role for an entire game, let alone an entire season. ‘‘Giving them the opportunity to show skills an identify deficiencies to work on.’’ Sports psychology ‘‘A lot of coaches say 90 per cent of footy is played above the shoulders, and my first question back is how much training is done above the shoulders. ‘‘It’s a big factor. Players can train and execute skills exceptionally well, but put them under match pressure and it breaks down. ‘‘They haven’t lost that skill, it’s about getting them to execute.’’

AFL Victoria youth girls academy and assistant at the Cannons followed. Jago said heading the youth girls academy was of particular importance to his progression as a coach, while the team itself went on to win three national championships. Jago was the backline coach at the Cannons in 2011 and forward line coach this year. He said he

would judge his own performance as a coach based on whether players that came into the Cannons program left it as better people. ‘‘I know that sounds a bit philosophical but it’s something that I genuinely believe. ‘‘If you go through the statistics, there are a lot of footballers who come through the program that do not reach the elite level, so what do they

get out of the program. I’d like to think whatever level our players settle at as footballers, they have learnt from the program and take it to AFL or VFL or back into local level.’’ Ian Kyte is staying on as the Cannons’ region manager and meetings have already started in preparation for the TAC Cup team’s summer program.
