ILLEGAL dumping at St Vincent’s and Salvation Army stores in Moonee Valley is costing the charities thousands of dollars in tipping fees and lost man hours. The St Vincent’s centre in Ascot Vale and Salvation Army store in Niddrie are constantly used as dumping grounds by selfish residents discarding worthless goods. Old mattresses, ruined couches and broken white goods are regularly dumped out the front of both centres. Salvation Army sustainability and waste manager Donald Munro said Niddrie was one of Victoria’s worst stores for illegal dumping.

In January, it cost the Niddrie store more than $2000 for a contractor to pick up dumped goods. It added to the cost of collecting mattresses and delivering furniture items to the Salvos’ Noble Park warehouse. ‘‘Our staff will spend two to three hours a day, particularly on a Monday morning, cleaning up rubbish instead of working at the retail store. That’s the sad reality of it. ‘‘Our message is: Please make your donations when we are open.’’ Ascot Vale St Vincent’s worker Patrick Fahey said it wasn’t just the $300 per trip visits to the tip his workers made to dispose of rubbish, but the fact it kept his workers and trucks from delivering much-needed items to

families experiencing hard times. ‘‘It’s an ongoing problem. Anyone who comes past here, particularly after long weekends, will see that. ‘‘Most of the time it’s people getting rid of rubbish; they aren’t making donations. ‘‘When we take the rubbish to the tip it’s $300 a load and that also takes a truck off the road for a certain time, which would otherwise be delivering welfare. It’s a double-edged sword.’’ Mr Fahey says his store now opens on Sundays, which has prevented some dumping, but the problem still persists. The Niddrie Salvation Army store and the Ascot Vale St Vinnies are among a number of charity stores

across the west that have obtained funding from the state government to try to curb the dumping. A $500,000 grant, from the state government’s landfill levy, will be used on surveillance equipment, signage and fencing. Signs that appeal to the emotions and others that threaten a fine have been installed at Ascot Vale and new surveillance cameras have been installed at Niddrie. Mr Munro said he would monitor the footage and pass on car registration details to Moonee Valley Council who have the right to issue a fine. It is estimated illegal dumping in Victoria cost charities $1.8 million last year, while nationally the figure is estimated to be $5 million a year.

Track reveals a new golden girl BY EUGENE BENSON

Hey, don’t sweat the grief bacon t could have been the end of a beautiful friendship. “I think your house is really hoogly,” declared the gal pal looking around. Say what! Agreed, a 1960s ski chalet complete with faux stone walls built by a homesick Austrian with nary an alp in sight is not to everyone’s taste, but that’s pretty harsh, Raelee. It’s a Danish word, she explains. It’s actually spelt hyggelig, but like so many Scandinavian phrases it’s pronounced as if speaking through a kazoo. It implies a sort of welcoming fire-lit cosiness and intimacy. And it’s just one of scores of evocative words with no English equivalent. That tub of ice-cream you ate after breaking up with the boyfriend, creating extra lard on your hips, is kummerspeck — a German word that translates literally as grief bacon. The person who calls you on your mobile and hangs up so you call back, saving them money, is a real prozvonit to the Czechs. Folk addicted to solarium tans — a la perennially bronzed actor George Hamilton — are called slampadato by the Italians. For the Yaghan people of Tierra del Fuego, that “look shared by two people each wishing that the other would do something that they both desire but which neither wants to initiate” is a mamihlapinatapai. That smart comeback line you thought of too late? The French phrase is l’espirit de l’escalier — a retort thought of halfway down the stairs. Just where is all this boketto — the Japanese equivalent of gazing vacantly through a window — going? Truly, I’m at a loss for words to explain.

FOR Essendon’s newest sprint star, 10-year-old Shanelle Hodgkinson it was the race of her young life. In front of thousands of spectators and against competitors up to five years her senior, Shanelle ran an incredible race at the Stawell Athletics Carnival to finish third in the under-16 girls 100 metres. On the weekend of the famous Stawell Gift, Shanelle was one of almost 200 junior athletes to travel from all over Victoria to compete on the Central Park track in Little Athletics events. After winning her heat she entered the final easily, but running against seasoned athletes a placing was surely not being considered by even those close to her. Proud parents Cherylynn and Anthony Hodgkinson said the result at Stawell followed an outstanding run last season when Shanelle broke the under-10s 200-metre record at the Essendon Athletics Club. The record had stood since 1985. Mr Hodgkinson says a lot of the credit for her success goes to her

coach, Brad Carter, who had a number of runners succeed at the carnival. He said his daughter, who turns 11 in August, showed focus and composure beyond her years before the final. Mr Hodgkinson also admitted Shanelle inherited her running genes from his wife’s side, she being a former entrant in the 70-metre sprint at Stawell. ‘‘Shanelle was very focused, she didn’t want to talk to anyone and had her earphones in and hoodie on doing her warm-up routine. She was strutting around a bit like Asafa Powell.’’ Not only is Shanelle showing prowess on the track, but as the ‘goto’ player in the Collingwood representative girls basketball team she’s largely responsible for her team’s appearance at state championships. ‘‘She’s going really well in athletics. She’s made the state championships every year she has been eligible and at basketball she’s like Superman on the court. It’s like the other team doesn’t even notice and all of a sudden she’s up the other end; she’s too quick for them.’’

Win for pokie venues BY EUGENE BENSON and DAN MOSS A STATE Government decision to restrict council’s from using differential rates has been met with concern by Moonee Valley Council and outrage from the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV), which represents Victoria’s 79 council’s. The use of differential rates involves placing a higher rate burden on certain types of properties. Darebin Council last year announced it would investigate whether it could place a differential rate on fast food outlets. It already collects extra rates from gaming venues. Moonee Valley Council started a 12-month review of it rating structure in May and had not ruled out the prospect of placing a higher rate burden on certain properties. However, it ruled this out following Darebin Council’s lead. Under new changes, Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell has quashed the hopes of councils wanting to introduce higher rates for liquor licence outlets, gaming venues and fast food stores. “The new guidelines make it clear that the use of differential rates by councils to pursue controversial social policy agendas is not appropriate,” she said. Moonee Valley mayor Narelle Sharpe said differential rates should not be regarded as a way to generate a higher rate income but as ‘‘a mechanism by which the rating burden is distributed across the municipality in line with principals of fairness and equity’’. ‘‘We are concerned that the guidelines will restrict the council’s ability to use rates to reflect our community’s values in regards to how properties are used and the additional service demand they generate.’’ MAV president Bill McArthur said the restrictions were a direct assault on the autonomy of

councils to make decisions about equitable rates. He said the changes were more autocratic, non-discretionary rules than guidelines. ‘‘Aside from the questionable validity of the guidelines, we are concerned that they will undermine the primary principle of equity in favour of appeasing certain vocal interest groups. ‘‘The reality is that in order to provide a discount for some property types, other ratepayers must therefore contribute more.’’ The MAV is seeking an urgent meeting with all councils to discuss the reforms and obtain further legal advice. Mr McArthur said it already had advice “that the minister doesn’t have the power to confer prescriptive rules” and it was a “disturbing attempt to appease vocal interest groups”.

YOUR CHILDREN ARE AMAZING ALREADY. WE JUST HELP THEM PROVE IT.

‘The new guidelines make it clear that the use of differential rates by councils to pursue controversial social policy agendas is not appropriate.’ — Jeanette Powell He said councils had to build infrastructure and services and make structure plans for land rezoned into the Urban Growth Zone which costs them money that, under the guidelines, they would be delayed in collecting. “Rating is aligned with property value, so the minute you put land in the UGZ the value of a

$50,000 block escalates dramatically. So is it fair that the rest of the ratepayers should subsidise?” he said. Opposition local government spokesman Richard Wynne said Mrs Powell had made the situation “worse, rather than better’’. “There are some serious legal questions being raised as to whether she has the legal power to enact these guidelines,” he said. Labor does not support local governments using differential rates to address “social problems” such as health or gambling addiction. Mrs Powell said Labor and the Greens did not participate in a committee that consulted local governments on differential rates. The new rules will affect council budgets next financial year.

I am disappointed that our local community newspaper has failed to deliver an accurate article. Alan Murphy did not seek any form of clarification with me regarding his comments and furthermore seems intent to write about the negative and fails to identify what myself and other councillors are positively actioning for the community. Fact: I have been late for two council meetings but was in attendance for the duration once I arrived. If Mr Murphy was to look at the minutes from other council meetings he would have also noted this has been the case with other councillors on Moonee Valley, and not just myself. Fact: the March 2013 meeting of the tenders committee was not called off. I was present at the meeting and nominated Cr Marshall as the chairperson. Fact: I was a former mayor of Keilor City Council and during my time on that council, and now with MVCC, I have carried out many requests received from residents in the Rosehill ward, including the following: â&#x2013;  Visiting residents in Hampton Road concerning a multi-unit development â&#x2013;  Sporting club assistance

â&#x2013;  Footpath reconstruction: Holden Avenue and Cannes Avenue for safety of residents â&#x2013;  Line marking on streets for safety of drivers (Riviera Road) â&#x2013;  Monitoring of vehicles illegally parking around Keilor Heights Primary School for safety of children and protection of residents within the surrounding streets â&#x2013;  Clarification of bus stop location in front of concerned residents on Buckley Street â&#x2013;  Follow-up on hoon drivers around North Road â&#x2013;  VCAT hearing regarding the retirement development at 9 Canning Street Perhaps, Mr Murphy, you should concentrate on the positive issues that I and my fellow councillors are assisting the residents of our respective wards with. Lastly, if you had of researched your article a little further and contacted me prior to publishing perhaps it would have been better informed and presented to the community as a more rounded piece. Cr Andrea Surace, Moonee Valley City Council

Murphy responds: Essentially Cr Surace is not disputing the accuracy of my piece. I stand by it.

Courthouse not for sale shortfall arising from a superannuation scheme. The black hole statewide is $453 million. The council had a marathon session on April 8, grappling until almost midnight with the 2013-14 budget. Rates increased 6 per cent last year, but the Municipal Association of Victoria has said councils may have little choice in either cutting services or increasing rates to fund the superannuation deficit.

hatever the outcome of the multiple drug investigations, the Essendon Football Club is to be commended on its communication with members since the issue arose three months ago. As club chairman David Evans was addressing the media last Thursday, members were reading his email backgrounding the latest developments and how the matter was being handled by the club. Evans understands the importance of keeping Essendon’s 50,000 membership base in the communication loop, this being his third email contact since the drug scandal first broke. Decades ago, members were mostly kept in the dark about what was happening at Windy Hill, but the current administration has been exemplary in the past few months with regular and much appreciated updates.

Vietnamese Pho Specialist st new in Moonee Ponds!

Car chase ‘ordeal’ BY EUGENE BENSON POLICE are appealing for witnesses to a high-speed car chase that led to a brutal gang bashing in the early hours of last Sunday in Avondale Heights. The two victims, both in their early 20s, were occupants in a car that was pursued by four to five other cars before it crashed into the brick fence of a house. They were then set upon by a group 10 to 15 men. Moonee Valley’s Senior Constable Brad Potts said the victims’ ordeal started at about 2.10am on Sunday when their car stopped at the traffic lights at the intersection of Canning Street and Military Road, Avondale Heights. Up to five cars pulled up behind the car, before one of the occupants got out and threatened the victims with a pole. When the lights changed a high-speed chase ensued through Avondale Heights along Military Road and past Highpoint shopping centre. Senior Constable Potts said that when the victims’ car stopped, 10 to 15 males, of Asian appearance and believed to be in their early 20s, set upon the two occupants with poles and bricks from the broken fence.

After a two-minute ‘‘frenzied’’ attack, the suspects drove off. The cars involved in the chase are believed to be a white coupe, a yellow sedan and a dark-coloured sedan and may have had P-plates. Senior Constable Potts said the attack appeared to be ‘‘random and unprovoked’’. ‘‘We are treating this incident extremely seriously, not only due to the victims being harmed by the offenders but the erratic driving and pursuit of the victims [that] endangered members of the public. ‘‘Their behaviour was dangerous to other road users and we believe the cars were actually used to block traffic when the car was set upon. ‘‘We are appealing for other motorists and witnesses that may have seen something to contact Moonee Valley criminal investigation unit.’’ He said it was believed the offenders had tried to gatecrash a nearby party earlier the same night. Information to Moonee Valley CIU on 9371 6100 or witnesses can remain anonymous and contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

BY EUGENE BENSON ESSENDON resident Nicole Billimoria is on a mission. Struck by accounts of the plight of refugees in a north Kenya refugee camp and how simple it was to help, Ms Billimoria has decided to hold a fundraising event. It’s dubbed Wine and Dine for a Cause, and proceeds from the night will go to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the work his team is doing at Kakuma refugee camp where more than 70,000 people are sheltering. Ms Billimoria said people at the camp were living in desperate conditions. ‘‘The money I want to raise will go to a water and sanitation appeal; $470 will pay for a water pump and $15 can get five to 10 buckets which these people can use to carry water from the pumps. ‘‘In some cases water is four kilometres away from where people are staying and they have to make that trip twice a day. ‘‘The money goes to building other, closer water pumps. Water and hygiene are in short supply and I’m seeking funding to help these people live in sanitary conditions. ‘‘Children and parents are subject to diseases such

as cholera on a daily basis and funding this can help save people’s lives.’’ Wine and Dine for a Cause will be the first public performance of Mrs Billimoria’s band, Red Cats at Midnight. They will use the occasion to launch their first EP. Two jazz bands will also play on the night, donating their time to the cause. Wine and Dine will take place on July 2 from 7pm at Acqua E Vino, in Yarraville. For more information, visit redcatsatmidnight.eventbrite.com.au

INBRIEF Fresh appeal over body in river Police are renewing their appeal for information following the death of Michael Atakelt in Maribyrnong nearly two years ago. The 22-year-old’s body was found in the Maribyrnong River at Ascot Vale on July 7, 2011. Police are interested in speaking to anyone who has information on the movements of Mr Atakelt between June 26 and July 7 in 2011. Contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit crimestoppers.com.au

Western Health following state government cuts which forced hospitals to cancel elective surgeries, theatres and beds. Minister for Health Tanya Plibersek said the money was part of a $107 million federal government rescue package to restore state cuts. The money will bypass the state government and go directly to hospital boards. The Gillard government has pledged more than $3.2 billion for public hospital services in Victoria this financial year.

Man retires after winning $1m

Jobs fear as building approvals fall

After 40 years of trying his luck, a Kensington man will retire after hitting the jackpot in last Wednesday night’s $1 million Lotto draw. The 60-year-old forklift driver, who has chosen to remain anonymous, said he had no plans for any extravagant purchases but would like to travel and see more of Australia. The winning System 7 entry was purchased from Flemington Florist Lotto.

Master Electricians Australia is urging the state government to reinstate first home owner bonus grants to give the construction and electrical industries a boost and ease the financial toll on small contractors in Victoria. MEA Victoria state manager Carl Rankin said building approvals fell 9.9 per cent in the past year, and the decline was now flowing through to building industry subcontractors. “Since May last year, more than 400 builders have not renewed their registrations and the number is increasing. It means the number of jobs is down for many smaller contractors as well as the amount of work.” Mr Rankin said the decline would impact heavily on the electrical contracting industry due to its substantial investment in the building and construction sector.

Chris Knoop and Christina Hemphill with the Invincible JAP

The Cannonball Run is a race across the US for riders on antique motorbikes. Goya Dmytryshchak talks to the only Australian entrant in last year’s race

A

merica’s coast-to-coast race of pre1930s motorcycles attracts many wanting an adventure in the style of Hells Angels founder Sonny Barger on Donald Trump’s budget. The youngest Cannonball endurance run entrant, a Texan given a start as a 21st birthday present, rode ahead of his team, which was hauling a mobile garage and motorhome complete with a beer keg and wine. Meanwhile, unemployed Newport metallurgist Chris “Cannonball” Knoop was hauling little more than his ass. Knoop was sitting in the hard leather saddle of his Australian-built 1925 Invincible JAP bike when

the engine died part way up a mountain in Idaho. He probably could have used one of the Texan’s coldies. “I hated Idaho; it was nothing but potatoes and hills and hot weather – sorry if you live there,” Knoop says. “It was about 110 degrees [Fahrenheit], which is about 45 degrees [Celsius]. I’d been on the bike for about seven or eight hours.” Inside his leathers, he was drenched in sweat. “I rode until I was dry – and kept going. “I was against the clock trying to get to the finish to make the time and then we hit the hills and the Continental Great Divide. “Coming up the hill, I lost power. I got to the finish and the first thing somebody did [was

say], ‘And how’s your day been, today?’ and I’ve got a TV camera on me. “I’ve just been on a bike for 10 hours, I’m dehydrated, I’m hot, my bike’s broken and I’m thinking, all I want to do is turn around and hit this bloke ... so, I asked him to come back in 10 minutes.” Knoop began the 6430 kilometre ride – from New York to San Francisco in 16 days – with wife Christina Hemphill in a 1924 Goulding sidecar. Leather-lined with a wicker exterior, it had sat under a gum tree on a farm for 40 years. Hemphill, who believes her husband is passionate rather than crazy, says she is proud of him for recreating something uniquely

Australian that brought pleasure to people across the world. “When we rode out of Newburgh Museum, which was the first point we took off from Newburgh, New York state. When our bike came out, people just burst into applause. “Not many people knew about the Invincible and when they found out it was an all-Australian bike, everybody was very interested. When Chris first finished, he said, ‘No, I think next time I’ll just go on someone else’s team and help them, I’ll be a wrencher’, that means fix the bikes. “But he’s already talking about which [motorcycle] he’ll fix up for the next ride.” Hemphill admits they were totally exhausted when they returned to Australia after the race, held last September. “It was a very busy time, but still quite exhilarating. The people you met were fascinating. ‘‘You were sort of quite pleased it was done but quite sad it was over. I could see that we probably will do it again – it was too much of a good adventure.” She says one of the most fascinating things was how people found different ways to enter the race. “There were people there who just bought bikes, hired mechanics for the two weeks, hired mechanical workshops, and they were determined to do it one way or another. “And then there were people like Chris who built the bike. “We stayed in motels. There were other people who slept out with their bikes, really did it hard.” Four days after starting, the sidecar was removed because it was slowing them down. To reach their checkpoints, the bike had to maintain a speed of about 90km/h to cover 500 kilometres each day. Hemphill followed in a back-up navigator’s vehicle. Knoop says race organiser Lonnie Isam jun started the Cannonball Run in 2010 to see if a bunch of mates could ride 100-year-old bikes across America. Bikes were to be ridden in the spirit of Erwin ‘Cannonball’ Baker, who set a record on his Indian motorcycle in 1914, crossing the US in 11 days. But now they say the run has two types of riders: people who are

mechanics and people who can afford one. Knoop and Hemphill, the only Australians, lined up against 70-odd entrants from about 15 countries. Among them was US fighter pilot Josh Wilson, who bought his bike online five weeks before the race after losing his job. He was fired after revealing on 60 Minutes a fatal flaw in the F-22 fighter jet’s oxygen system that was choking pilots and had maybe caused one fatal crash. The novice rider’s bike broke down almost immediately and then caught fire, but he completed it with a perfect score. Another entrant who attracted attention was world-renowned artist Scott Jacobs, star of the show Secret Millionaire. Knoop was travelling on a comparatively low budget. With the help of mates, he slowly rebuilt the bike he bought about 20 years ago in his backyard shed. Fellow members of the Newport Fiddle and Folk Club gave him a big send-off at the local bowls club, with entry by donation. “My original aim was to make the start line and see what happens, and anything over that was a bonus,” Knoop says. “There were teams over there who had spent $300,000-$400,000 on their outfits and their vehicles and their machines, but they didn’t know the first thing about even how to ride their bike or how to fix it when it stopped by the roadside. “Some of

those people actually did a lot better than we did, but some of them didn’t.” One rider went over an embankment and was saved by a copse of trees from a 30-metre drop. Another got his ankle caught in his bike, while an American packed it in because he couldn’t hack it. The young Texan, Buck Carson, didn’t have much luck with his temperamental bike named Elizabeth. But defiant to the end, he plucked her off the back of a truck and, holding his state’s flag high, walked Elizabeth 2.7 kilometres across the Golden Gate Bridge to the finish line, with a police escort. Knoop didn’t finish. But some ride to win while others ride for adventure in the land of the brave. A quote by former US president Theodore Roosevelt trumpets those who dare fail, over timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat: “It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood ... ” Back home in his driveway, sitting between his JAP and an Indian, Knoop mulls over Roosevelt’s words. “Very much so, very much so, yeah, very much so,” he says, nodding. “To be judged by your peers ... what you had over

April 16, 2013

there was the whole international community of people that are actively involved in this. And right from the start, when somebody was looking for something, I sent it over. I helped this person, I helped that one. “I brought over all the spares I could possibly find for this machine, which consisted of about a shoebox full of bits, and they went on everyone else’s bike but mine. “The whole way across America, the support – I’ve never seen anything like it. “We broke down in one person’s front yard in Iowa and we pulled in under the shade of a great big oak tree. And this guy’s on a rocking chair and he just sat there and we played with the bike. “And next thing you know, out his wife comes with cups of tea and a couple of cakes on a plate and said, ‘Oh, we’ve got visitors’. “This bike was built here, in the sheds, and I had a lot of club involvement and a lot of mates came round to help. “For me, the people are what it’s about, you know. The bikes become secondary.” I The Invincible JAP will be retired and displayed at Garage Classics of Williamstown. Knoop’s film about his Cannonball Run attempt, The Invincible Adventure, has been accepted into the St Kilda Film Festival

Chief judge Brad Rogers said the awards continued to attract more international interest every year, with a 12 per cent increase in entries from 2012. Several new categories have been introduced to the AIBA program to recognise the best medium-sized brewery. There will also be trophies for makers of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Australian champion beer of showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;international champion beer of showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

THE federal government has thrown its support behind public transport investment, criticising the opposition’s $1.5 billion promise for the proposed eastwest link. Federal opposition leader Tony Abbott has pledged the money for an 18-kilometre road connecting the Eastern Freeway to the Western Ring Road via the Tullamarine Freeway and Port of Melbourne. But the Gillard government is backing Infrastructure Australia’s view that the Melbourne Metro rail project should be the priority. The $9 billion metro rail tunnel tops Infrastructure Australia’s priority list and is expected to increase rail network patronage by up to 30 per cent. The opposing views highlight a political divide between investment in public transport and roads infrastructure. The parties remain at odds on the projects at the state level, with western suburbs Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury

®

seizing on comments in Parliament by opposition planning spokesman Brian Tee suggesting Labor doesn’t support the eastwest link. Mr Elsbury said: “This is a major kick in the guts for people of the western suburbs who understand the limitations of the West Gate Freeway and the need for a second river crossing running onto another freeway that does not finish at a dead end. “Labor continues to claim the western suburbs as their natural environment, but when it comes to delivering major infrastructure that’s vitally needed to reduce congestion on our roads, providing direct routes for trucks into the Port of Melbourne and ending our reliance on a single river crossing, they turn and run.” Opposition roads spokesman Luke Donnellan said Labor believed the state government had no intention of building the western part of the project. He said talk of an east-west link was a smokescreen for connecting the Eastern Freeway to CityLink at the expense of the west.

AFTER the runaway success of a the fundraising lunch held last year, Essendon resident Jacquie Brown has decided to hold another even bigger and better event this year. Mrs Brown, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2005, has hosted an annual fundraiser for MS Australia for the past four years. In 2012 she was amazed by the generosity of the owners of Mamma Lina’s restaurant on Keilor Road, Niddrie, who offered to host her charity lunch for free. What ensued was a huge charity luncheon that raised $11,500 for the MS Foundation and attracted more than 90 guests. Mrs Brown said Mamma Lina’s owners, Sam and Jim Agostino

and Jake Ludwig, jumped at the chance to host the lunch last year and have signed up to do it all over again. ‘‘Last year it was just amazing. People are so generous so we just had to do it again,’’ Mrs Brown said. ‘‘We thought it would be a one-off at Mamma Lina’s, but with all the support and people offering to help we are doing it again.’’ Called ‘Let’s do lunch for MS’, the event is on June 19 and includes a three-course meal, champagne and a monster raffle. All proceeds go to MS. Staff at Mamma Lina’s will work for free. To book your spot, contact 0487 588 150 or msluncheon@gmail.com. — Eugene Benson

Tin shed cowboy rides into not-so-wild west BY ROBERT FEDELE STAN Cash, the fictitious ’80s ‘tin shed cowboy’ spruiking a chain of retail stores selling discounted electrical and household items, is back. The business brand reopened in March this year after a lengthy hiatus. Co-founder Rob Soek, of Ascot Vale, came up with the advertising concept of a cowboy on a horse in the late ’70s to front the chain because he liked playing ‘cowboys and Indians’ as a child. A migrant from the Netherlands who came to Australia in 1955, Mr Soek says he had always been an entrepreneur, starting off by selling eggs on the side of the road of his parents’

Blast from the past: Stan Cash the tin shed cowboy, aka Rob Soek, has ridden back into town.

farm. He entered the retail game ‘by accident’ in his late 20s and was immediately hooked. Even so, he says he never could have predicted how big his brainchild would become. ‘‘My philosophy was to give good customer service,’’ he says. ‘‘I thought if I’m cheaper than everyone else I’m going to do a bit of business.’’ At its peak, the chain had 20 stores across Melbourne and was turning over $100 million a year. The Stan Cash character, with his horse, blue cowboy hat, red and blue western shirt and denim jeans, became a household name through his entertaining commercials. Mr Soek sold off the company in 1990 and stayed on as managing director for another two years before parting ways and getting into other forms of retail. By 1995 it had closed

down completely. ‘‘It was disappointing, but I always knew that would happen,’’ he says, pointing to a belief that the passion he had for the company was lost once it became public. Mr Soek’s decision to revive the company this year was based on his gut feel that the economic times were right for the business to prosper once again. ‘‘People are looking for a good deal at a reasonable price. They know what they want.’’ Mr Soek and partner George Caval launched their 2000-square-metre superstore in Brooklyn on Geelong Road. ‘‘It’s very exciting,’’ he says. ‘‘At the end of the day you make a little bit of profit and make it fun. ‘‘You grow with it [the business]. You have to be diligent and have a sense of communing and be prepared to put in the hard yards.’’

TIMEOUT

Cunning cuisine THE RUSTY FOX Address: 501 Macaulay Road, Kensington Contact: 9372 1218 Hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 8am-late. Unlicensed

HILARY McNEVIN EATING OUT inding a gap in the market and choosing to fill it is a logical reason to open a business. It’s exactly what the owners of The Rusty Fox, the new deli, food store and cafe in Kensington, have done. Chef Rebecca Creighton, Kim Scott and Jennifer Galea all live in Kensington and were tired of having to leave the suburb to pick up their supplies of good cheese, quality charcuterie and artisan breads. So they decided to open their own shop and stock it with what they love. The trio opened The Rusty Fox after spending months renovating a former laptop shop. They’ve created a modern space dressed with recycled wood panelling and illustrative artwork reminiscent of fairytale characters by artist

F

Kaffeine. The shop has a long countertop with stools to sit at that allow you to watch the chefs while they cook dishes from a succinct but smart menu that covers comforting combinations of flavours as well as smart salads. The herbed omelette is a great example of finding and filling gaps in the area’s cuisine. Kim Scott tells me no one else nearby is doing a really good omelette so they put one on. It’s gently cooked, with chopped chives and folded over subtly smoked salmon, asparagus and cos lettuce hearts ($16). It’s balanced in flavours and beautifully presented. An open sandwich of chicken terrine ($12.50) is a delight with its thick slab of house-made terrine on top of good sourdough bread from Port Melbourne bakery Noisette. It’s finished with a finely sliced apple and radish salad and a chutney that adds bite and sweetness.

Worth relishing: As well as serving delicious meals, The Rusty Fox has its own deli range. At the front of the room is a fridge filled with dishes to take home, such as autumn vegies with saffron cous cous, slow-braised lamb, and produce such as Istra meats from Daylesford and Holy Goat and Meredith cheeses. Shelves filled with house-made jams and relishes as well as lentils and grains, dress the room

HEATING..... COOLING.....

and there’s a charming courtyard out the back. Five Senses coffee rounds out the experience and the baking stands out, too. (Chef Creighton is a highly regarded pastry chef.) So save room for a gooey chocolate brownie. The Rusty Fox has certainly filled a gap and it is doing it with quality and experience.

COVER STORY

1960s FLASHBACK \ 29 MYROSS AVENUE, ASCOT VALE 3032

A

waken the sleeping beauty and bring this 1960s brick-veneer residence back to life. A little piece of Mad Men atop Whiskey Hill, ‘Braehead’ remains largely untouched since the day it was built and is merely awaiting cosmetic touches to restore it to its former glory. On a 676-square-metre block with a rear right-of-way, the lovingly maintained dwelling of about 15 squares is limited only by your imagination. A quaint insect screen that doubles as a security door provides access off the front terrace, which is screened from neighbours by the established gardens. It leads into a small foyer and left into the first of three double bedrooms with built-in robes. Each has large corner windows to make the most of the corner sun. The front room includes a Mistral ceiling fan. Along the passage, the separate shower room is a timely reminder of the practical design, which continues in the adjoining bathroom, with separate toilet. The original bathroom with lino f loor includes a shower over bath with decorative tiled surround, and vanity. The toilet also has two-way access into the laundry. There’s also a powder room near the back door, which will be handy for green thumbs busy in the garden. To the right of the foyer is the carpeted lounge room with Wonder Heat slow-combustion heater, slate surround and shelves, pelmeted corner windows, wallpaper wall, Deco lightfittings and Frigidaire ‘All Seasons’ airconditioner. A sliding door opens to the dining room with polished f loorboards, abundant light via its corner windows, airconditioner and a servery. Another sliding door leads into the meals area with ceiling fan, and beyond to the chic 1960s kitchen, which is resplendent with hanging shelves, double sink, tiled splashback, a Simpson ‘Fabulous 300’ rotisserie oven, slide-out electric hotplates and all-original cabinets. The back yard, which is separated by fences from the rear workshop, includes established gardens and single garage via the long side drive.

MOTORING ●

VW ups the ante in small-car stakes Ewan Kennedy road tests the Volkswagen up! nd now for something completely different — yet at the same time something that’s a blast from the past. The Volkswagen up! has a cheeky shape that’s like nothing else on the road. It’s a difficult thing to achieve because the smallest VeeDub could have looked like any other low-priced hatchback. Full marks to the designers, who have used a clever front grille style and a distinctive kink in the rear pillar to make their up! stand out from the madding automotive crowd VW’s marketing gurus like the new model’s name to be spelled as up! – complete with lowercase ‘u’ and an exclamation mark. Volkswagen up! is the reigning World Car of the Year and is available in three- and five-door hatchback bodies, with just one equipment level but a number of option packages. The blast from the past we mentioned is that there’s more than a hint of the original VW Beetle in the way up! feels on the road. Not in its handling, which is infinitely better than the old swing-axle Beetle, but in the cheeky way it

A

accelerates and the happy way it corners and stops. The buzzy sound from the three-cylinder engine is another endearing feature. At just 3.54 metres in length, the VW up! is a delight in tight city areas and we found ourselves having access to parking spots that nothing else with four wheels could fit into. There is seating for four, although rear seat adult passengers will need to impose on those in the front seat to get comfortable legroom. Maximising the size of the passenger cabin inevitably reduces storage space and, at 251 litres maximum, the boot is relatively small. However, it is quite deep. The rear seatbacks fold down to greatly increase carrying capacity. Power for the cute little Volkswagen up! comes from a three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine. Fuel consumption during our test week was generally in the six to seven litres per hundred kilometres range. On the open road it was possible to get it under five litres. Prices start at $13,990, not including government or dealer delivery charges.

VAFA

BY TEO PELLIZZERI

Singing in victory: Essendon coach James Hird and players belt out the club song after Friday night’s win against Fremantle. Picture: Sebastian Costanzo, The Age identity crisis, this may have been the start of something special – a grassroots revolution in the stands, watching elite and aspiring-to-be-elite footballers on the field. The crowd will understandably drop away this Saturday, when the

SPORT ●

VFL (1pm at Windy Hill) and AFL (4.40pm at Docklands) overlap. But when the games don’t clash or the AFL team plays interstate, the seed has been sewn for Essendon’s community to support in numbers at its spiritual base.

St Bernards was tipped out by three points against Uni Blacks in a game of momentum swings to open the VAFA Premier season at the weekend. Uni Blacks kicked six last-quarter goals, more than doubling their score, to win 10.12 (72) to 9.15 (69) at the Snake Pit. Go to mooneevalleyweekly.com.au to read coach Chris Tankard’s thoughts on the game. St Bernards was goalless in the opening quarter but trailed by only five points at the first change.

Revolution at Windy Hill ESSENDON’S VFL team was so much more than ‘‘the twos’’ for thousands of Bomber fans who went to Windy Hill on Saturday. A crowd of 4000-5000 packed the club’s traditional home ground to watch a competitive and entertaining match, even though the Bombers lost to the Box Hill Hawks. After a trying week for supporters, with AFL coach James Hird in the spotlight, it was a chance to re-engage with the game. And after the high of Friday night’s win against Fremantle, the love was being shown for any and all in red and black on Saturday. When Hal Hunter and Josh Toy goaled in the last quarter during Essendon’s comeback, the chant rung around the Alan Hird, Cookson and Reynolds stands probably the loudest since Windy Hill’s AFL bow in August, 1991. For a new team, in a VFL competition that has regularly tussled with an

Frankly, Hawks shatter Bombers’ confidence BY TEO PELLIZZERI A THIRD-term purple patch from Box Hill’s Amos Frank left Essendon stunned as the Hawks held on to win by 11 points in VFL on Saturday. A huge crowd filled Windy Hill for Essendon’s VFL home opener but a promising first half was overturned in the third term as Box Hill won 12.12.84 to 10.13.73. Essendon threatened a final-quarter comeback but could get no closer than four points as Box Hill clung to victory. Essendon had its season squared with one win and one loss while Box Hill joined the Bombers on the same win-loss record with its first win. The teams had swapped the lead during the third quarter but it was the Frank show in time-on as he played a pivotal role in setting up the Hawks’ match-winning lead. The small forward snapped a tricky chance from the pocket and followed it up with another snap from the corridor a minute later to make Box Hill’s lead 11 points. He then pressured an Essendon clearance to force a mis-kick straight to Tom Gordon, who capitalised by converting a 40m set shot.

SCOREBOARD Essendon Bombers 10.13 (73) lt Box Hill Hawks 12.12 (84) GOALS — Essendon: Dell’Olio 3, Hams 2, Toy, Duscher, Hunter, Ashby, Gumbleton. Box Hill: Gordon 4, Frank, Spangher, Savage 2, Langford, Wood. BEST — Essendon: Pears, Daniher, Gumbleton, Sikora, Gleeson, O’Brien. Box Hill: Litherland, Cheney, Lake, Osborne, Savage, Mirra.

Straight from the centre restart Luke Andrews hit Gordon on the chest, and his 35m set shot put Box Hill up by 24. It could have been worse for Essendon had time not expired as Brandon Wood was running in to an open goal. Box Hill consolidated its thirdquarter burst early in the final term when Shane Savage marked in the forward pocket and backed his pace to break Tayte Pears’ tackle and run to the goalsquare, putting the Hawks up by 29. It was then Essendon’s turn to chip

away at the deficit, and when a quickfire double to Dell’Olio (15 minutes) and Hal Hunter (16 minutes) got the gap back to 10 points the home crowd found its voice. When Josh Toy goaled on the turn at the 20-minute mark the margin was back to four points and Essendon looked like pulling off a great escape. But a push in the back free-kick for Gordon at the top of the goalsquare two minutes later was the steadier for Box Hill, re-establishing a 10-point margin. Box Hill held on in the last seven minutes with Essendon unable to kick another goal. Earlier, Essendon threatened to escape Box Hill for periods in the first half but was unable to extend its lead after a Box Hill fightback in the second quarter. When Jason Ashby snapped truly from 20m out in the 10th minute of the second quarter the margin was 22 points and the game at breaking point. But Box Hill hit back with a goal to Gordon from 48m, followed by Will Langford from a similar distance on the run. Fans rally behind their Bombers at Windy Hill: page 81.

Gumbleton ready for Hird’s call BY TEO PELLIZZERI ESSENDON coach Hayden Skipworth said his team had played three good quarters but let itself down in the third term as Box Hill inflicted the Bombers’ first loss of the season. Essendon had led by 22 points during the second quarter only to fall as many as 29 down in the early stages of the last. The lack of a dominant on-baller for four quarters was a factor in Essendon failing to capitalise when the momentum was going its way. Box Hill dominated the final minutes of the third quarter as Skipworth and his assistants worked desperately to stop the game from blowing out. ‘‘It was hard to come back from that,’’ Skipworth said. ‘‘We tried numerous things but were getting beaten around all stoppages. We tried an extra number at the

stoppage, behind the footy, unfortunately they were just playing excellent footy and we couldn’t stop their run. ‘‘The midfield didn’t win enough of the ball, it put our backs under a lot of pressure and didn’t provide enough for our forwards. ‘‘Most of our guys were up and down, but not in the third quarter and that hurt us the most. ‘‘Guys were in and out all game. We spoke about having a four-quarter effort and didn’t get it.’’ Essendon’s AFL tall stocks are under a question mark after its Friday night win against Fremantle, with Michael Hurley suffering an arm injury and Patrick Ryder a chance to be cited by the match review panel (findings were released yesterday) for a bump that concussed Docker Luke McPharlin. If either was to miss the next AFL match, Saturday against St Kilda, it could mean promotion for either Scott

Gumbleton or Joe Daniher. ‘‘I think Gumby is in good form, played five or six games now, and Daniher they might look at,’’ Skipworth said. ‘‘But that’s for Hirdy and the other assistant coaches to decide. We’ve got some guys in form and hopefully they get an opportunity at some stage. ‘‘Gumbleton is ready. The last week or so he’s been ready for AFL selection. He’s physically right, his skill, touch, everything is really good at the moment. When his opportunity comes and I’m sure it will, he will perform at AFL level.’’ Frank’s third-quarter cameo was the forward’s only noticeable impact on the game and Skipworth praised his backline’s efforts to quell the danger man at all other times. ‘‘[Kyle] Hardingham was on him for all of the game and I thought did a great job . . . he’s an exciting player and those sort of guys can pop up and do that to you.’’

Bomberwatch Scott Gumbleton Had the highest-profile contest of the day one-on-one against Brian Lake. Dominated a spell in the second quarter to out-mark Lake impressively on multiple occasions, but did not capitalise due to inaccurate kicking for goal. Lake improved significantly in the second half. Joe Daniher Responded well to the close attention of the big crowd in the early stages. Kicking for goal was a let-down and eventually his first option was to hand off for a quick play-on. Had to work his way up the ground, even as the first outlet kick at times, after opponent Angus Litherland got the better of him in a few contested marking situations. Leroy Jetta In the mid-20s possessions and started the game where he left off against Bendigo the previous week. Checked a lot closer by the Box Hill midfield after dominating the centre square and using his kicking skills to good effect early.

Corey Dell’Olio Finished with three goals and was a handy outlet for quick hand-offs to keep the ball moving quickly. Dangerous in the forward 50m. Will Hams Made a noticeable contribution from a possession count in the mid-teens. Willing to throw himself into the contest. Hal Hunter Repeat running in the last quarter was rewarded with a goal during the Essendon comeback. An important part of the team’s transition play with his running to spread. Jason Winderlich Unable to find the ball near goals and ultimately spent more time up the ground, even in a defensive role at stages in the second half. Kyle Hardingham Desperate and disciplined in a defensive role save for the end of the third quarter, though without a great deal of protection from the midfield. Often manned Box Hill’s most advanced forward player.


Demons return to haunt Paco BY TEO PELLIZZERI ROUND one was a statement day for Essendon District Football League’s heavyweights as Greenvale and Aberfeldie romped to emphatic wins. Strathmore kept its winning start to the season going but a spirited Maribyrnong Park showed its off-season player turnover had not left it out of reach of the contenders. And newcomer Airport West overcame a goalless opening quarter on its return to Premier to revive Pascoe Vale’s demons of last year. Pascoe Vale blew a half-dozen half-time leads last season, ultimately costing it a top-four berth. And again it was the Panthers up at the long break, and three-quarter time, but losing the match as Airport West kicked away to win 14.13 (97) to 10.15 (75). The Eagles went goalless in the opening quarter as Pascoe Vale jumped to a 27-point lead. But Airport West coach Adam Contessa said it was not red alert in the quarter-time huddle. ‘‘In the reserves and 18s game there was probably a 6-8 goal breeze, and Paco had that in the first quarter, so four goals down probably wasn’t bad in hindsight,’’ Contessa said. ‘‘But then they came out and kicked the first goal of the second quarter . . . and we missed a few. ‘‘Their run-and-spread early got us. We probably had a few guys not following instructions. [Pascoe Vale’s] overlap and loose man meant they capitalised.’’ Marcus Kenny’s bag of seven goals stood out, with Pascoe Vale’s spread of goal-kickers having no one player with more than two. Contessa said most of Kenny’s goals were from marks and set shots. ‘‘I know it’s round one but it gives a lot of belief to our playing group and people around the club. We’re not coming up to make up numbers. ‘‘Paco were a game off finals last year and will

This was a good starter game to see where we’re at.’’ At Strathmore, the home team kept Maribyrnong Park at arms length through the second and third quarters before getting away late to win by 32 points. Spearhead Adam Winter booted five goals and Jordan Doering three, while Dale May’s run through midfield contributed three timely majors. Tasmanian recruit Michael Musicka booted three goals for the Lions while former Geelong midfielder Will Slade made a promising start to

his EDFL career. Elsewhere, reigning premier Greenvale spread the load between six multiple goal-kickers in an 86-point hiding of the Kangaroos. Keilor led start to finish, albeit narrowly, in a 15-point win against Avondale Heights. And Aberfeldie kicked out to a 58-point halftime lead before running out 60-point winners against Essendon Doutta Stars.

United steals game with last-minute goal BY TEO PELLIZZERI ESSENDON United overcame a goal deficit and a red card to keep its winning start to the FFV state league 4 west season alive against Hoppers Crossing on Saturday. Robbie Pelle’s goal in the last minute of regular time completed the 2-1 comeback win at Grange Reserve. United had fallen behind to a Hoppers Crossing penalty in the first half after a hand-ball call on Adam De Guara, who was shown a red card for the infringement. Second-half substitute Gabriel Sarpa-Perez had revived United hopes when he rose above his marker at a corner in the 75th minute to head in. Pelle’s goal came on a break after he dribbled past one man, turned another and placed his

finish. Coach Enzo Inglesi said the win showed the character of his team. ‘‘Being down to 10 men, even though we thought we deserved to win, it took a lot to turn it around,’’ he said. ‘‘The hand-ball might have been in the six-yard box, the ref said it was a goal-scoring chance. ‘‘It was an open game, both teams hit the post, the bar. We both had chances. ‘‘The fresh legs off the bench, Gab, Nathan Chapman, Mark Sacco, they made a big difference.’’ United has been as high as state league 3 in the old FFV divisional structure and is aiming to return by winning promotion this campaign. The club was a mathematical chance of going up late last season but could not handle a packed fixture of rescheduled games from mid-winter.

‘‘We’re trying to build a foundation again. It’s been a hard pre-season and the boys are doing the work to push back into state three.’’ In the first Moonee Valley derby of the season, United’s state 4 west rivals FC Strathmore won 5-3 against Essendon Royals. Lachlan Bushby netted a hat-trick for Strathmore while Ferenc Cseh and Daniel Peric were the other scorers. Neven Antic, Martin Strasser and Michael Curcija scored for the Royals. In state league 2 north-west, Avondale Heights exchanged second-half penalties with Moreland City to draw 1-1. Frank Bazzano was on the spot for the Heights’ equaliser to keep his team’s unbeaten start to the season going. In state league 5 west, Melton beat Melbourne Tornado 5-0.
