Come one, come all... To Queens Park to enjoy all the fun and excitement of our largest annual community celebration.

Proudly supported by


A Moonee Valley Weekly Special Promotion

WELCOME Now in its 36th year, the Moonee Valley Festival is our largest annual, free community celebration. Join us as Queens Park once again comes to life for a fun summer day full of excitement with rides, live music and activities for the whole family. With something for young and old, Moonee Valley Festival has become one of the major attractions on our local events calendar. This year is set to be more exciting than ever with market stalls, roving performers, entertainment stages, business expo sites, food stalls, amusement rides and community activities and displays.

10am. So come down early and relax with great entertainment by the Wendy Stapleton Trio and enjoy some delicious refreshments. None of this would be possible without the support of those involved in organising the festival. I would especially like to mention Moonee Valley City Council staff, our volunteers, generous sponsors and you, our local community. I look forward to seeing the community come together to have fun and celebrate on Sunday, 24 February.

Cr Narelle Sharpe Moonee Valley Mayor

It’s all about health and fitness as my fellow Councillors and I again host our traditional champagne breakfast, starting at

CITYLINK MAIN STAGE The Citylink Main Stage plays host to some of Melbourne’s finest performers and entertainment by local performers. Schools, community groups, Flemington Community Centre patrons and other community members have volunteered to form the Moonee Valley Community Choir, singing “I Am Australian” and “Imagine”. The headline act on stage is Benny Walker, whose sophomore album “Sinners and Saint’s is an effortless blend of blues, roots and acoustic folk. Walker’s intimate, eloquent songwriting

couples with a rich, soulful voice that speaks of the trouble, strife and wonder of everyday life. Along with earlier awards, his voice recently earned him the Victorian Indigenous Performing Arts Award for best new talent 2012. Hailing from regional Victoria, Walker has performed alongside some of Australia’s finest including Archie Roach and Vika and Linda Bull. He’s also performed at many top Australian festivals and made his international debut with a tour or Canada.

African group take landmark race discrimination case to court BY EUGENE BENSON A RACE discrimination case mounted against Victoria Police by six people of African descent living in Flemington was scheduled to start yesterday in the Federal Court. Tamar Hopkins, of the Flemington Kensington Community Legal Centre, said Haile-Michael v Konstantinidis was an important public interest case involving a claim of racial discrimination by racial profiling against several members of the Victoria Police, the Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police, and the state.

Knowles, Peter Seidel, Arnold Bloch Leibler and Ms Hopkins. In 2010, the Legal Centre launched a ‘police accountability project’ aiming to provide advocacy and individual remedies to the victims of police misconduct and racial profiling. It has taken a long time for the discrimination claims to get a hearing.

The applicants first filed their claim with the Australian Human Rights Commission in 2008 and then the Federal Court in 2010. Ms Hopkins said that from the beginning the applicants alleged they had been subject to assaults, excessive and unlawful policing and racial profiling. ‘‘The applicants allege there is a

systemic and unlawful pattern of racial discrimination by police in the Flemington area that was not resolved through complaints to the OPI or a review conducted by Victoria Police in 2006. This is a landmark, first of its kind case in Australia — the bravery and tenacity of the young men involved has made this case possible.’’

SARAH HARRIS QUE SERA

Bats come down from the belfry ost people have pink batts in their ceiling. We have grey ones. And no one died installing them. The bats insinuated their own way in through a small hole at the apex of the roof of the A-frame and colonised the wall space. We’re not sure which of the 21 or so species of Microchiroptera found in Victoria our tiny coresidents belong to. Now and again the microbats become disoriented and fly inside the house when they really mean to go outside. When this happens we dim the lights and throw open the doors so they can find their way into the night. Of course, my husband would claim he routinely wakes to find an old bat blinking blindly from the pillow next to him. Just this morning I found a stray sheltering behind the chopping board. One of my more fastidious friends is horrified. When I pointed out that bats are probably about as hygienic as she is — given the number of microbes living on, and in, the average healthy person outnumbers human cells by 10 to 1 — she started adding Dettol to her bathwater. But she still wouldn’t back down on bats. And, after I suggested they were also rather more useful than dental nurses, she just got huffy. It’s true, though. Each night microbats consume up to half their body weight in insects, acting as an important natural control, particularly of mosquitoes. With barely 20 per cent of all mammal species that existed at the time of European settlement now surviving in the inner suburbs, there’s no shame in being a little batty.

Off the couch, to save lives BY EUGENE BENSON IT won’t be just a stroll for one Moonee Valley family when they step out on Sunday. Mrs Macdonald and a group of friends and family are taking part in the Run for Strength, a charity run to benefit people with muscular dystrophy. For Mrs Macdonald, backing research on muscular dystrophy has special importance: both her sons Devin and Steven live with the

genetic disorder. So a fivekilometre or 10km jaunt around Albert Park Lake on Sunday will be one small, crucial step forward. All money raised, even the registration fees, go towards research to finding a cure. Steven and Devin are popular students at Strathmore North Primary and Strathmore Secondary College. Mrs Macdonald is hoping more than just her family friends, especially the larger school communit-

ies, will get involved in the charity event. ‘‘My sisters-in-law Anne Duke and Sue Patykowski are taking part and we’ll be joined by other family members, friends and work colleagues. ‘‘Steven’s friend Luke and his family are taking part, too. ‘‘Muscular dystrophy is a genetic disorder and there is no cure at this stage. ‘‘That’s why I’m a big supporter of this event, because all the money

goes towards research.’’ The Muscular Dystrophy Association also helps families living with the condition by organising respite camps, workshops and support networks.

Feeding visitors kill birds with kindness THE much loved water birds at Queen’s Park Moonee Ponds face serious health risks due to the behaviour of park visitors. Despite signs asking residents not to feed the array of birds on the Queen’s Park lake, everyday Moonee Valley Council’s parks and garden’s officer witness or find evidence of the practice taking place. Parks officer David Hope said throwing bread or even specialty bird pellets in the water was the catalyst for a number of serious problems. Uneaten bread left in the water causes the nutrient level in the water to increase making the lake a perfect breeding ground for algae, including blue-green algae, an outbreak of which can kill water birds. Birds also receive little nutrient from bread, which causes their stomachs to swell, giving them a false sense of fullness and leading to starvation. In young birds’ diets, bread can lead to poorly developed bones, feathers and muscular tissue and, if their parents have become dependent on

an artificial food source, young birds will not learn how to forage for themselves. Mr Hope said bread left in the park was also a contributor to an increase in feral pigeons, seagulls and rats. Rats and seagulls in particular have a detrimental effect on the duck population eating their eggs and ducklings. Bacteria in old bread can also spread botulism among the bird population a neural disease that leaves birds unable to keep their necks above water. ‘‘There are people in the area that I’m sure have been coming here for 50 years and feeding the birds but they aren’t the ones here first thing in the morning taking dead or dying ones out of the water,’’ Mr Hope said. ‘‘We don’t want to have to police this issue but rather educate the people that come here that feeding the birds is not on. ‘‘I certainly understand that people want to introduce their kids to birds and that in itself is great, but it really results in it being selfish, the ducks don’t get anything out of it.’’

Not all it’s quacked up to be: Moonee Valley Council is pleading with residents and visitors to Queens Park to not feed the birds to avoid a health risk. Pictured is Parks Officer David Hope who has had to retrieve dying ducks and other water birds from the lake. Picture: Darren Howe Despite its suburban setting, a variety of water birds can be found at Queen’s Park such as Chestnut Teals, Hardhead and Pacific Black ducks, Moorhens, Eurasian Coots, Grebes

and in the past a pair of black swans. For more details visit parkweb.vic.gov.au and search for ‘feeding birds’.

Meeting demand, mission accomplished DUE to overwhelming demand for its charity services and the generous level of donations from the Moonee Valley community, Helping Hands Mission has again expanded. Late last year Helping Hands opened a clearance centre at Fullarton Road, Airport West to complement its op shop in North Essendon. A second section of its Airport West warehouse clearance centre has now opened, dedic-

ated to supplying household furniture . The Helping Hands Mission’s Melanie Kent said the new clearance centre was a one-stop-shop for very affordable furniture – such as bedding, whitegoods and lounge suites – as well as clothing, books and other goods. “We opened the clearance centre late last year and we have seen the demand for household items just keep growing. ‘‘It’s wonderful that we now have a dedicated furniture section for people to access.’’ Ms Kent said workers at Helping Hands were all volunteers so every dollar spent went to helping families in need.

“We recently donated a washing machine, bed, toys and books to a single Sudanese mother and her family. ‘‘The look of relief and thanks on the mother’s face was a reminder of just how important charities like Helping Hands Mission are. “We recognise that everyone needs a helping hand at some time in their lives.” The Helping Hands Mission Inc. Op Shop Clearance Centre is at 492 Fullarton Road, Airport West. The mission’s other op shops are at 130 Keilor Road, North Essendon, and 18 Knighton Avenue, Airport West. — Eugene Benson

I find it perplexing that you claim the Moonee Valley Weekly is ‘‘your community voice’’. If it truly was then you would allow the community to voice their opinions in your publication. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case. The only opinion piece ever published in your paper is Murphy’s Lore. As a Moonee Valley resident and cyclist I don’t understand why this man has such a hatred toward cycling and cycling infrastructure. Cyclists are taxpayers and road users. We deserve to have a fair portion of the road and the funds used to maintain such amenities dedicated to us. If Alan Murphy thinks too much money is spent on cyclists perhaps he should have a look at how much money is being spent on his beloved motor vehicle on the Western Ring Road. If he thinks cars don’t make you fat perhaps he could read a portion of the science-based research that has come to that conclusion. Or better still drive his car to a school, any school in Moonee Valley and see how many kids are driven to school. Kids who are perfectly capable of walking are being chauffeured to the door because their parents think it too dangerous to walk to school because there are too many cars. Finally, I don’t know where he gets the idea that there is an uber-powerful cycling lobby in Moonee

James Hird and the board members who fronted the media look like a bunch of worried men. Where there is smoke there is fire and I, as a passionate paid up member of the club, feel very concerned. I can hardly believe such a great club would take such risks and I believe many will lose their jobs/ careers. Lyngilbert (via web)

See the Bombers face up It’s time the president called an extraordinary meeting — members are the Essendon Football Club, not the reverse. We deserve to be told direct and not through social media. This is our club — players come and players go, but loyal members stay. Speak direct, Mr President.

There is no wrongdoing from anyone. If there had been we all would have known before the press conference. The AFL is using the club to make the code look most professional in the wake of an Australia-wide investigation. Think outside the square, people.

Lending a hand: Charity worker Saudi Lajai has been able to do good work in Manila thanks to Essendon Rotary. Picture: Darren Howe to Kenya where 20 children are receiving education at a centre for widows and orphans funded by the club, which is also investigating a cleft palate surgery project. Locally, Essendon Rotary is providing strong financial support to the Caroline Chisholm Society.

Hundreds of inquiries about rate payments kept the Moonee Valley Council’s customer service centre under the pump last week, but the courteous and experienced staff coped incredibly well with the increased pressure. If the volume of inquiries creates a lengthy wait, the system now invites callers to ask for a call back rather than the tedious delay to speak to an officer. Remarkably, the system works efficiently. An Ascot Vale caller who asked to be called back last week was pleasantly surprised to receive a return call within 30 minutes. Big tick for the prompt response, says the ratepayer, but she was even more impressed with the courteous telephone manner of the officer. The centre was the brainchild of former CEO Murray Douglas in 2000.

SSENDON Lions have understandably distanced themselves from a misleading report about the Cambridge Aged Care Group for whom the Department of Health and Ageing “has serious concerns about its conduct and quality of care”. The Lions Club-run Lionsville sold its Essendon aged-care centre in 2006 but still owns the land. Since that time it has been run by Viva Care, part of the Cambridge group. But a photograph of Lionsville which appeared in a newspaper report at the weekend implies a link between it and the Cambridge group. Lionsville is simply the landlord. Meanwhile, the Lions are pressing on with their redevelopment program on Pascoe Vale Road, building 36 apartments for the over-55 market.

Getting wheel women in a spin A FREE cycling program helping women gain more confidence on their bikes will wheel into Moonee Valley this month. The program is aimed at helping introduce women to the health and social benefits of cycling as well as teaching them basic safety and skills, such as changing tyres. Organiser of Wheel Women, Tina McCarthy, said many females were intimidated by the prospect of cycling, especially sharing the road with cars. ‘‘They see people out there on their fast road bikes, wearing lots of lycra, and that’s not necessarily for them,’’ she said. ‘‘Research shows that it’s not a competition for women; for many it’s about the social and recreational aspect.’’ The accredited AustCycle coach said getting more women on bikes had wider social and health benefits. ‘‘Healthy mums means happy mums, and great role models for their kids. Not to mention it works to combat the prevalence of mature-onset diabetes and obesity. ‘‘The women don’t need to wear lycra and they aren’t going to be made to feel they are asking dumb questions. ‘‘It’s about giving them the support they

Come Fly with me

As Melbourne prepares for the Avalon Airshow, Mark Smith shows how the city’s west is a haven for people who want to get their feet off the ground for a flight of fancy

T

en kilometres to the west of Werribee lies a small airfield that’s home to an unusual aircraft. While a Jetstar Airbus flies overhead, inbound to Avalon, a small engine roars as a strange-looking cart with two people on board moves forward, attached to a large parachute that fills with air. Inside, pilot Steve Conte is introducing potential student Darryl Deller to the joys of flying an Aerochute. A short run along the bumpy runway and the cart, which looks ungainly on the ground, lifts off and heads skywards, suddenly gaining a smooth grace like a soaring bird. Conte has been operating from the strip for 15 years, teaching people to fly the Aerochute aircraft his company builds in Coburg. “We get a lot of people who just want to have a try flying in something that’s

different. It’s an unusual, but very safe, way to get into the air,’’ Conte says. ‘‘It’s a lot of fun and very easy to fly. You can’t stall them or spin them, and if you have an engine failure you just parachute slowly down to the ground.” At the end of his half-hour flight, Deller agrees. “It’s fantastic. You get up there and have the wind in your face. You look down and realise there’s nothing between you and the ground except the seat you’re sitting on. “It’s certainly very adventurous. I’ve never done anything like this before. Steve’s a great pilot. He let me take the controls, which I didn’t expect.” Another potential student, Jodie Wood, of Bonbeach, was equally impressed with her Aerochute experience. “It was like being on a flying motorbike just above the ground. My favorite part was watching the kangaroos as we flew above them.

“It’s definitely a thrill, but a very comfortable thrill. The seat is like sitting in your lounge chair.” At RAAF Williams, Point Cook, a slightly more traditionallooking aeroplane allows adventurous passengers the chance to step back in time and fly in a 1941 Tiger Moth trainer. Garry Herne operates Vintage Tiger Moth Joyflights. When he’s not piloting the silver biplane he’s owned for 12 years, he’s an international airline captain on an Airbus A330. “People love the feeling of stepping back to a more romantic era of flying,” says Herne as he readies his classic aircraft. “The fact that the aeroplane is still fully certified despite being built in 1941 gives my passengers confidence when it comes

to doing aerobatics, which most customers choose in their flight.” Sarah Smith, of Wyndham Vale was awed by her aerobatic flight in the Tiger Moth. “That’s amazing. I’m shaking. It’s insane, my goodness. I’m actually speechless. “I’d definitely recommend it to my friends. If I can do it anyone can do it. It’s really cool, being in the open air.”

These include: Aerochute International Wyndham Vale - aerochute.com.au AirSports Sunbury Airfield, goflying.com.au Amber Aviation Essendon Airport - amberaviation.com.au Geelong Gliding Club Bacchus Marsh Airfield - gliding-in-melbourne.org Kyneton Aero Club Kyneton Airfield - kynetonaeroclub.org Melton Air Services Melton Airfield - meltonairservices.com.au Point Cook Flying Club RAAF Willams - pointcook.org TVSA Pilot Training Bacchus Marsh Airfield - tvsa.com.au

For those who want a more intense flight experience, Herne also owns a Yak 52 – a former Russian military trainer built in 1991. The Yak can expose those who want a highenergy thrill to over 5G (five times their body weight) during aerobatics. “The Yak allows people to enjoy a huge adrenaline rush as they experience the sort of aerobatics they see at airshows like Avalon,” says Herne. Bacchus Marsh airfield holds the distinction of hosting three gliding clubs, making it the largest gliding operation in Australia with 18 club gliders and a combined membership of more than 200. Geelong Gliding Club is the oldest, having formed in 1929, there’s also the Victorian Motorless Flight Group and the Beaufort Gliding Club. Geelong club member Spiro Mallia started flying at Bacchus Marsh in 1982. He is passionate about engineless flight. “Gliding to me is free flight,” says Mallia. “It’s the experience of soaring, being carried up by the forces of nature and being able to use that to fly across country. It’s the nearest thing to a magic carpet. “When I’m gliding I thinking about controlling the aircraft, looking around for other aircraft and simply enjoying the view. I’ve been flying for 30 years and I never get tired of it. “Bacchus Marsh is a well-kept airfield close to Melbourne. It’s a real asset for the western suburbs.’’ Malia says a combination of flat ground and hills around the airport give the area lift yearround. And flying in a club atmosphere is a great way to learn to fly and meet like-minded people.

amazing. I’m shaking. It’s insane, “That’s

my goodness. I’m actually

speechless”

“We try and be as welcoming as we can to visitors, so we go out of our way to greet people who might be interested. There are a range of ways people can come here and try gliding. They can just try a passenger flight or join the club for a weekend and receive a number of instructional flights.” His advice to people who have always wanted to fly? Act on your dream. “Come along and do it. You don’t even have to call. If it’s reasonable weather we are out here.” Heading north, Kyneton airfield has a strong club tradition of fostering recreational aviation. The small but busy flying school allows locals to achieve their dream of flight, and the neat line of hangars is home to about 50 private planes. Norm Edmunds is a long-term member at the Kyneton Aero Club. His flying machine is a homebuilt Corby Starlet that gestated in his garage over a six-year period. “You don’t so much fly the Corby as wear it when you are airborne! It’s a personal fighter plane,” Edmunds says after a Sunday morning blast around the patch. Kyneton Aero Club president Matt Henderson sees his job as an opportunity to help the airfield grow while still keeping neighbours happy. “For a long time we were invisible to the

local council,” says Henderson. “Members from years gone by felt that was a good thing. But such an arrangement can be a double-edged sword for a flying club. There is the element of out-of-sight, out-of-mind. “We had some problems last year when the council discovered it had this asset and no real plan for what to do with it. “A number of plans appeared, from close the airfield to develop the airfield. Thankfully after a campaign by aviation groups the council saw the value in keeping a local landing ground viable in a community context. So we are still here for the next 15 years”. I

PROFILE ●

A bit of AC/DC and she’s in her element BY ROBERT FEDELE

A

MANDA Fraser is back where it all began. For the past couple of years the 39-yearold has been living with her parents in her childhood home in Strathmore, creating art in a tiny garage studio. ‘‘I used to draw everywhere, behind mum and dad’s chest of draws or anywhere,’’ she recalls. ‘‘Even in primary school if you had written assignments I wouldn’t really focus on the writing or the essay; I’d always have to do it as a drawing.’’ Fraser attended St Columba’s College in Essendon and pursued art after graduating, enrolling at the Victorian College of the Arts. It was 1990 and the ‘major’ was drawing. At the time, it was the only drawing course in Australia. After completing it, Fraser moved overseas, holding down day jobs and drawing in her spare time. Along the way, she’s had exhibitions in numerous countries; some of her work is at a gallery in New York. ‘‘Travelling is the most important thing for me. I’ve done so many cityscapes and

they’ve all sold. Every place has a different temperature, different lighting, different feel.’’ Yet it was only in 2006 that the artist took up painting, a direction which she says has ‘awakened’ her. ‘‘It was amazing. The first brush stroke I just got so excited. It was fantastic.’’ Two years ago, Fraser decided to work on her art full-time. ‘‘It’s pushed me forward to work solidly and consistently for the past two years or so,’’ she says. ‘‘It’s a bit of a struggle, topsy turvy as a matter of fact, but I get there. My work is very distinctive.’’ Right now she’s focused on rummaging through her works so she can bring together a collection from over the years, which she hopes to show in an exhibition at a Fitzroy gallery in June. Fraser finds it difficult to describe her style, pointing to several influences and periods throughout her career. One thing that has remained fixed, however, is her need for music when painting; usually a bit of rock such as AC/DC. ‘‘I can’t work quietly or when people are watching,’’ she says. ‘‘[The music] excites me, makes me move. It’s like dancing with my hands, singing with my hands when I paint.’’

Work of art: Amanda Fraser in her backyard garage studio in Strathmore.

Hyde drum beats anew he local music scene was abuzz just before Christmas when Garry Hyde, son of legendary drummer Bully Hyde, reopened his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eponymous music store in Flemington. The store closed after 50 years when the Allans + Billy Hyde group collapsed last year. It reopened again, as GH Music, in December. This Saturday brings its official grand opening with the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inaugural â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Huge Day Outâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; featuring free entertainment on an outdoor stage, music clinics and demonstrations from top musicians. The iconic Billy Hyde Music store opened in 1962 at 100 Mt Alexander Road, Flemington, and over the years it played host to international music legends including the Rolling Stonesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Charlie Watts, Don Henley (The Eagles), Carlos Santana and Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) who wowed customers and generations of drum students. Billy Hyde, a Moonee Ponds local for most of his life, began his illustrious drumming career in the 1930s and went on to become the drummer on Channel 9â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s In Melbourne Tonight with Graham Kennedy from 1964-69.

Long live semillon Our wine buff Ben Thomas gets serious about an underrated drop

O

wine shows and with wine critics and good restaurants, but it is a really hard sell in a general sense for the public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I sympathise with the general public who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really understand semillon as a young wine. It is a very challenging style and I think to be realistic we need to keep experimenting with off- and just-off-dry styles to broaden that market.â&#x20AC;? Burton made his ďŹ rst off-dry semillon in 2008 and his Wild Semillon is made using wild yeasts and fermenting a portion of the juice on its skins, just like a red wine, to build texture and depth of ďŹ&#x201A;avour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of all our wines, the Wild Semillon is our biggest seller. The off-dry semillon means I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to make a moscato or a verdelho (wines that are popular at Hunter cellar doors), which Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not very interested in,â&#x20AC;? Burton says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Occasionally in cellar door you get someone pull a face because of the high acid and fruitdriven intensity [of semillon], which is unlike the sav blanc or verdelho theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re used to

drinking. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when you show them an offdry semillon and all of a sudden the semillon experience changes for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not classical by any stretch in terms of Hunter Valley semillon, but you might get a 20-year-old onto that now and in ďŹ ve yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; time theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re buying Tyrrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vat 1.â&#x20AC;? If you have the patience, plus somewhere to keep wine cool as it ages for several years, Australian semillon is one of the great wine bargains. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, several producers, such as Meerea Park in the Hunter Valley and the Barossaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peter Lehmann Wines, take the effort out of our hands and release them as ďŹ ve- or six-year-old wines. This ageing time adds to the costs, which are passed on to the consumer and often take a $25 wine to somewhere about $40. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair enough, and in many cases, the wines still prove to be bargains. â&#x2013;

Love a bargain? â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026;â&#x2DC;&#x2026; De Iuliis Semillon 2012 (Hunter Valley) $18; 11.5% Aromas of peach, lemon, pea shoots and herbs, in particular thyme. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of the zesty lemon characters driving the intense, mineral-laced acid. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crisp, dry and lightly textural but, most of all, refreshing, minerally and steely. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approachable and nice drinking now, but its best years are ahead of it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to argue with the price so buy half a dozen, try one now and leave the rest for a few years. Food match Pan-fried ďŹ&#x201A;ounder with capers 5â&#x2DC;&#x2026; Outstanding 4â&#x2DC;&#x2026; Really good 3â&#x2DC;&#x2026; Good

2â&#x2DC;&#x2026; OK 1â&#x2DC;&#x2026; Not worth it

pened a bottle of semillon lately? If the answer is yes, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the minority. In wine circles, semillon is spoken about in revered, hushed tones, but its steely, often puckering, acidity makes it a hard sell to many wine drinkers. Semillon is revered for its longevity and the honey and toast notes that start to develop after a few years in the bottle. But, as most of the wine we drink is bought on the day we consume it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understandable why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not on the radar of many casual drinkers. Semillon winemakers know this and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing something about it. A handful of premuim Hunter Valley winemakers are having great success by adding an off-dry semillon to their range of wines, where residual sugar delivers sweetness to balance out the zippy acid. Matt Burton, of Gundog Estate in the Hunter Valley, says his off-dry Wild Semillon is now his most popular wine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got all the producers in the area pretty well making the same style of wine, which does really well in

Put this Japanese gem on your list HYAKUMI Address: 330 Keilor Road, Niddrie Contact: 9972 1482 Hours: Monday-Saturday, 11.30am-3pm; Sunday-Thursday, 5-10.30pm; Friday-Saturday, 5-11pm Licensed

HILARY McNEVIN EATING OUT hink about your favourite local restaurants; they may include a Chinese or Italian place, and there’s probably a favourite pub. Chances are that by now you’ll have a favourite Japanese restaurant, too, where you’ll get consistently good food at a price that suits and in an environment you enjoy. Just three months ago, Hyakumi, on Keilor Road, Niddrie, opened its doors and already it seems to have become a Japanese ‘local’ for many. The hum and bustle of the strip of shops on Keilor Road on a Saturday afternoon is palp-

able, and the calm of Hyakumi as we entered was immediately soothing. The room is simply decorated, so simple, in fact, that they have tinsel on the walls down one side of the room (of course, it could be a leftover from Christmas). Either way, modern lighting is set against wooden tables simply dressed with chopsticks and napkins, and each with a pretty soy sauce jug. Service can be a little slow off the mark, but once it warmed up we were well looked after. The menu is large, and after only three months it’s clear it has good support from the local community — groups and couples chat to the staff like old friends — and the food is beautifully

Winning fans: Expect good-quality seafood and sushi like this at Hyakumi. presented and well-priced. The Gyoza is panfried dumplings filled with pork and vegetables ($8). These are as good as any we’ve tried, being filled with slightly spiced minced pork and the vegies. There’s an extensive selection of sushi specials made to order. The unagi sushi (grilled eel sushi, $16) has an unctuous gelatinous quality, the eel being juicy and slightly salty. The classic California Roll ($8) is a textural explosion of salmon, avocado, cucumber and flying fish roe, all very

fresh. Heartier, meatier dishes in the main courses may include katsu don ($12), which is crumbed and fried pieces of pork, with egg and onions served over lots of rice, and the chicken teriyaki ($17), which has a generous portion of marinated chicken thigh meat over rice with a salad of pickled vegetables to balance out the sweet teriyaki flavour. Hyakumi isn’t reinventing any Japanese flavours or techniques, but it is producing quality product consistently. To me, that makes it a good ‘local’.

COVER STORY

PERIOD PLEASER \ 239 BUCKLEY STREET, ABERFELDIE 3040

E

levate your family’s lifestyle to new heights in this 1920s brick California bungalow in the coveted Aberfeldie precinct. Adorned with leadlight windows and doors, picture rails, oak wall panelling with plate racks, and decorative ceilings, the dwelling of almost 40 squares is influenced in part by Arts and Crafts styling. A picture of elegance behind its picket fence and neat gardens on a 766-square-metre block, the two-level treat is immediately comfortable and has unlimited scope for improvement in the years ahead. The side porch leads into the double-door leadlight entry and the oak-panelled foyer with feature timber and leadlight fretwork. To the right is the carpeted lounge room with leadlightenhanced bow window and ornate ceilings. Another set of doors open to the dining room, which has a fireplace with timber overmantel and direct access to the front porch. Tessellated floor tiling, timber vanity and shower over bath with brass rail are highlights of the period-style bathroom. A carpeted staircase ascends to the attic-style top level that was constructed about 25 years ago. A powder room is built into the roofline at the top of the staircase, complementing the three single bedrooms (two with built-in robes). The main bedroom, resplendent with a semiensuite (shower and vanity), Fujitsu reverse-cycle airconditioner, walk-in robe, also includes wall friezes. Downstairs, a sliding leadlight door leads into the vestibule, which is the centre space in the rear extension with slate floors. To the left is a lodge-style family room with timber bar, oak-panelled walls, Colonial windows and window seat. On the right is the compact kitchen with Linea stainlesssteel appliances (wall oven, pull-out rangehood and fourburner gas cooktop), Dishlex dishwasher, walk-in pantry, servery and understairs storage. A door from the vestibule opens to a covered courtyard that overlooks the rear yard, which includes a gazebo.

My name is Sam Pennisi. I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve got some things

An Open Letter to the people of our District.

to share with you.

It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. Forty years have passed since I opened Pennisi Real Estate in Essendon. It was 1973, the year that both Cathy Freeman and Kieren Perkins were born. Gough Whitlam was Prime Minister. Rupert Hamer was our Premier. The Commonwealth Government had just lowered the voting age from 21 to 18; despite that hundreds of 18 to 21 year-old diggers had died in Vietnam . 1973 was also the year that we got out of that heart-breaking conflict. Back then Australia’s population was a mere 13.3 million. Today we have grown by around 70 per cent to more than 22 million. How things have changed since the day that I (nervously, I admit) opened my little real estate office. Back then it was just me and a secretary. That’s all I could afford. Until that is, somethi ng began to happen. The local community began to support me. My business started to pick up. I had a simple philosophy – I believed in working hard and I believed in taking really good care of customers. I also wanted to be innovative. I was always looking for new and improved ways of serving clients. There was someone I most wanted to help – you, the residents of my area. As the years rolled on business kept improving. I was lucky. Or, perhaps , as the saying goes: ‘the harder I worked, the luckier I got’. I quickly learned the importance of two words to say to my customers. They are two words that I’d like to say now – to all the people of this district (including the more than 30,000 families who have graced us with their business over the past 40 years). Those two words are importa nt and they need to be said. THANK YOU! Thank you for sticking by us for so many years. Thank you for being with us in boom times and gloom times. Thank you for being there after disaster struck at 5am one Saturday morning in 1990. There was a terrible fire. Our office burned to the ground. But, thanks to the support of our staff and the community, we were re-located and back in business in 48 hours. People cared, they really cared. Thank you. It has been almost 20 years now since my son, Andrew Pennisi, and I made one of the biggest and, as it turns out, one of the most popular decisions in the history of Pennisi Real Estate. We decided to embrace the ‘ethics in real estate’ philosophy of consumer advocate, Neil Jenman. All my life, my business practices have been built on the principle of integrity. I believe that ‘your word is your bond’. The Jenman ‘Approved’ business systems are perfect for Pennisi Real Estate and our clients. We conduct our business on what’s best for our clients. The interests of our clients come before our own interests. You, our customers, have loved this approach. The bunches of flowers, the bottles of wine and the boxes of chocolates that arrive regularly in our office from our happy clients are testament that we are on the right track. Yes, we are proud to have been serving our community for 40 years. But, as my son Andrew rightly told me the other night, ‘We wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you, our customers.’ Thank you. Andrew Pennisi was only three when I opened Pennisi Real Estate. Today he has taken over the reins. I am proud to say that he’s taking great care of our customers. He’s an innovator who’s leading the way in the real estate world. With his effort and your support, I think Pennisi Real Estate will be around for another 40 years – at least. Thank you again. Thanks for your years of support. And thank you to the dozens of people who work so hard at Pennisi Real Estate. Without you we couldn’t make any customers smile! My best wishes to you all,

P.S. Back in 1973, the Bombers finished fourth on the VFL ladder.

Ewan Kennedy previews Holden’s new flagship

I

European look: Holden’s new VF Commodore has striking lines. The interior is the big story in the new VF Commodore. Whereas the exterior is the result of a major facelift that sees the doors and roof unchanged, everything inside is new. Again there’s a strong European influence: a combination of an Alfa Romeo-like binnacle and layout of the major instruments, and Audi-like centre console and infotainment screen. The screen is a large eight-inch unit and gives access to General Motors’ new MyLink system.

t’s two years late, but the new VF Holden Commodore is finally on its way. Blame the GFC and the near bankruptcy of General Motors in 2008 for the hold-up; many GM plans were put on hold and the budget for the VF Commodore was severely slashed. Holden Commodore (and Ford Falcon) sales slowed dramatically as their styling became increasingly out of date, and the buyer surge towards SUVs in place of large cars didn’t help. That may all be about to change. I’ve just stepped out of the top secret Holden design studios in Melbourne after an advance look the new VF Commodore. We were very pleased to see the Commodore design hasn’t suffered from the delay and that the Holden is bang up to date in the latest automotive styling trends. There’s a distinctly upmarket European shape to the VF Commodore inside and out. Look at the complex shaping of the bonnet with its Jaguar-like curves and lines then at the stylised BMW-like shape of the rear end.

SPORT ●

INBRIEF Premier Cricket Essendon will need a second-innings batting revival for the second consecutive match to get back into its contest with Hawthorn-Monash Uni after nearly conceding first-innings points within the opening day. The Bombers were all out for 117 from 52.5 overs after winning the toss at Windy Hill. Ben McRae (37) and Solomon Mire (28) shared a 45-run partnership for the third wicket, before Mire’s departure at 4-84 started a 7-33 collapse that ended the innings. Hawthorn-Monash Uni reached 3-108 in 38 overs before stumps.

Bowls Moonee Ponds snared bragging rights against arch-rival Essendon but moved no closer to pinching the minor premiership from Melbourne in Henselite Premier Division at the weekend. Moonee Ponds won 14-71 to Essendon’s 4-63 to remain second in the division by three points behind Melbourne with one round of the homeand-away season remaining, to be played next Sunday. The Australian Open started on Sunday and continues at Darebin through the week. See next week’s Weekly for a wrap of all the action. Rink scores: M Jacobsen 21 d M Wilson 10, B Spurr 21 d N Wilson 17, A Galloway 16 lt P Loe 22, S Fordham 13 lt D Woodrow 14.

VTCA

St Kevin’s pair steal the show BY TEO PELLIZZERI ST Kevin’s hoisted the Athletics Victoria Shield on Saturday after a big day out from two competitors who are versatile. Glenhuntly lifted the women’s division 1 shield at Lakeside Stadium, while Doncaster snared three different divisions, more than any other club. Decathletes Stephen Cain and Hamish Nelson combined for 351 of St Kevin’s 1003 points as the team won the top prize in Victorian club athletics from Athletics Essendon (929.50) and Glenhuntly (885.50). Glenhuntly beat Essendon in the last event, the 4x100m relay, but beyond that showdown there was no revival of last year’s controversial finish which ended with Glenhuntly the victors, but Essendon lifting the shield on the day none the wiser about a points-tallying error. ‘‘We knew we’d lead early and it was a matter of holding onto that lead,’’ St Kevin’s club president and 1500m competitor Andrew Thomas said. ‘‘Stephen Cain, Hamish and Zach Nelson, Daniel Bailey, they were just all over the field. ‘‘Xavier Chapman and Simon Field competed in the steeplechase under duress with injury. These sort of things really matter. ‘‘Being an old boys club we start slow because of school athletics and the coaching duties some of our guys have . . . we had to win seven of the last nine rounds to take the East region premiership and we won eight of them.’’

Cain won the Commonwealth Games selection trials for decathlon in 2010 but wasn’t picked for Delhi after posting a B-qualifier. While the individual goal may be a crack at the Glasgow games team, Cain, a St Kevin’s graduate in 2002, said club athletics still meant a lot to him. ‘‘It was our second shield ever after winning two years ago and for a club like ours with under 50 members it’s just a good effort to be here . . . and awesome to win.’’ Glenhuntly’s sprint and pole-vault competitor Juliet Austin said a breakthrough win for the club after five decades without a women’s premiership was overdue. ‘‘This year was our turn, we’ve been runner-up I don’t know how many years in a row,’’ Austin

said. ‘‘We’ve got a pretty amazing bunch of girls, and filled every event which you have to do to win.’’ Birgitta Nemaric competed in hurdles, long jump, javelin and discus to pick up 89 of Glenhuntly’s 477 points. Box Hill finished second on 388 and Sandringham third on 361. Doncaster claimed the men’s division 2 title, overtook Essendon late to win the men’s under18s and also won the men’s under-14s. Waverley dominated the veterans classes, winning the men’s and women’s over-40 divisions. Commonwealth Games gold medallist and three-time Olympian Tamsyn Manou competed on Saturday for Sandringham, winning the women’s 400m by more than five seconds.

The chances of a Moonee Valley outfit making the top four in Senior Division suffered a major blow on Saturday with St Bernards and Airport West-St Christophers both losing. Beaumaris (8-306) passed St Bernards’ 9-210 set the previous weekend, while Hoppers Crossing (228) beat Airport West-St Christophers (152) on the first innings before a late exchange of second innings that ended with the Saints making 5-107 off 16 overs, having been set 170 for victory. In North Division, Strathmore (239 and 3-30) beat Williamstown CYMS outright (100 and 168) while Doutta Stars (123 and 2-95) beat Laverton outright (118 and 98).

VTCA T20 Doutta Stars will play the winner of Old Mentonians and Port Melbourne in the T20 final after a seven-wicket win against Haig Fawkner last Tuesday. The Stars restricted Haig Fawkner to 167, with Brenton Parchment claiming 3-30 and Neil Gamage Jayasundara 3-27. Parchment hit 28 at the top of the order before Jesse Duddington (35) moved the score to 3-81. An 87-run stand between Shannon Wigmore (40no) and Blair McFarlane (49no) got the Stars home. The Old Mentonians v Port Melbourne semi-final was completed after the Weekly went to print.

VWCA A road trip to Horsham proved no disruption for Essendon-Maribyrnong Park as it smashed Melbourne by 183 runs in Premier Firsts at Horsham City Oval. Molly Strano made 64 in the Bombers’ 240 before Melbourne collapsed to 5-18 early and was all out for 57.

Gifted Hankin takes prized trophy to NSW BY LANCE JENKINSON THE coveted Keilor Gift trophy will spend another 12 months across state lines after interstate invader Richard Hankin stormed to victory in the Victorian Athletic League 120-metre foot race at Keilor Recreation Reserve on Saturday night. The trophy took a trip to the Apple Isle last year after Tasmanian speedster Andrew Robinson claimed the spoils, but it will head in a different direction this time with Hankin lugging the major prize back to NSW. It was a fairytale result for Hankin, who has lived with the fact his second place at the 2008 Stawell Gift was as close as he had ever come to winning a Gift in his career. ‘‘He was elated,’’ former Keilor Gift starter Matthew Webster told the Weekly. ‘‘It was his first Gift win in his running career. ‘‘He came down here with expectations of making the final and certainly went home with a bonus.’’ Hankin, who ran off a handicap of six metres, won in a time of 12.67 seconds, ahead of veteran and former Keilor Gift winner Craig Mair and Melton South’s Rhys Parkinson. Mair, who ran off 13.75 metres, led

KEILOR GIFT 120m Keilor Gift: Richard Hankin (NSW) 120m women’s Gift: Maddison Coates (Hurstbridge) 1600m backmarkers: Arron Downes (Airport West) 1600m frontmarkers: Andrew Soltys (Brunswick West) 400m womens: Megan McMahon (North Sunshine) 400m novice: Matt Mather (Caroline Springs) 300m veterans: Marita Downes (Airport West) 800m womens: Olivia Goder (Rowville) 800m open: James Deane (Ringwood North) 70m open: Rhys Parkinson (Melton South) U20 120m: Jessica Farrugia (Broadford)

most of the way and appeared to be coasting to the finish line. But Hankin finished the stronger, winning by a slim margin. ‘‘He [Mair] controlled the race up until the last 15 metres,’’ Webster said. ‘‘He thought he had it run and won. ‘‘Unfortunately for him, Richard came home a lot stronger and beat him.’’ Parkinson had the best form of any runner in the field. The local entrant had dominated most of his events during the Christmas/New Year period

and even took the honours in the 70-metre open race earlier in the day. But he had to settle for third. ‘‘Rhys won the Latrobe Gift and the Burnie 400 over in Tasmania and came back here to Victoria and won the Wangaratta Gift and won the Albury 400,’’ Webster said. ‘‘He’s had a stellar season.’’ The backmarker of the Gift was Bola Lawal, a former Olympian who ran off a handicap of 0.5 metres. There was much interest surrounding the Nigerian, who returned to sprinting after a two-year ban for returning a positive test at the IAAF Melbourne Track Classic in 2010. Lawal could not overcome the big handicap, failing to get out of his heat. The 120-metre women’s gift was taken out by teenage sensation Maddison Coates. An amateur state champion over the 400, Coates relished her six-metre handicap to win in a canter. ‘‘She came in here with a luxury handicap,’’ Webster said. ‘‘Knowing her form, she should never have been given six, but she took advantage of it and won by a country mile.’’ Coates, from Hurstbridge, won the final in 14.16 seconds from Lara Gambino (Parkdale) and Tara Domaschenz (Mount Clear).

Dream finish for girls KEILOR-ST Bernards enjoyed a dream finish in the 4x100 relay to literally sprint to back-to-back Athletics Victoria shields in under-14 girls on Saturday. Kara Olsen brought home the relay to edge out Diamond Valley, and leave the final tally 772.50 points for KeilorSt Bernards to Diamond Valley’s 751. The victory was KSB’s only title at Lakeside Stadium, with its men’s open division 2 finishing fourth, men’s over40s fifth, men’s under-18s sixth, men’s

under-16s fourth, men’s under-14s fourth, women’s division 1 sixth, women’s over-40s fifth and women’s under-16s sixth. ATHLETICS VICTORIA SHIELD Women’s under-14 winners — KeilorSt Bernards: Ellie Keraitanos, Kara Olsen, Rachel Ware, Katarina Rebuffo, Georgia Bertrand, Emily LayneKapetanovic, Mardi Sutherland, Kate Abfalter, Ann-Marie McPherson, Rhiannon Matthews, Elaine Irons.

Desperate shout Glenroy fielders go up in appeal for the wicket of Flemington’s Bilal Sheikh in Darren Howe’s picture. But there would be no joy for Flemington in Victorian Turf Cricket Association North B1 at the weekend as Glenroy held on to win by 32 runs. Flemington has just two wins for the season and fell short chasing their third, making 237 in reply to Glenroy’s 5-269 declared the previous weekend.
