‘‘We are so happy that he had the choice of every place in Melbourne and he chose us . . . twice.’’ — Hyun Moon-Petrocco Moonee style: Restaurant owner Hyun Moon and K-Pop star Psy at Korean eatery Tobagi after the Future Music Festival. Above right: Psy performing at the festival, at Flemington racecourse. Second Picture: Mick Tsikas ‘‘He was very busy, often on his phone but really friendly and spoke perfect english and posed for pictures — they all had a great time and we just loved it.’’ Mrs Moon-Petrocco said she has worked in traditional Korean restaurants back in Korea and then in Melbourne but took the plunge to open

Tobagi in Moonee Ponds eight months ago. ‘‘It’s the biggest thing that’s happened here so far but who knows, maybe we will get other stars coming here now.’’ Although Psy, whose full name is Park Jae-sang, has recorded and produced a number of albums it was

Gangnam Style, released last year which shot him to international stardom. While the song may present as a catchy cross-over pop song, with an entertaining clip and now iconic dance move to go with it, Gangnam Style has also drawn much attention for its lyrics and the film clip’s criticism of Korean ruling class and elites all over the world. Gangnam Style became the first Youtube video to reach 1 billion views.

FORGET Gangnam Style, when K-POP sensation and international superstar Psy isn’t on stage he spends his downtime rocking it ‘Moonee Ponds style’. The man behind the international pop sensation known as Gangnam Style — a catchy Korean pop song with accompanying dance moves — recently dined twice at a small restaurant, named Tobagi, in Mount Alexander Road. Restaurant owner Hyun MoonPetrocco was shocked, to say the least, when last Friday Pys’s management contacted the restaurant to see if the cult figure and his management team could dine at the traditional Korean eatery after an underage show they had just performed. Mrs Moon-Petrocco said Psy enjoyed himself, loved the food and said on leaving that he would be back. ‘‘We weren’t sure what to think. He was like Arnold Schwarzenegger; when he left he said, ‘I’ll be back.’ ’’ Then two days later one of the biggest names in world entertainment kept his word, calling the restaurant back on Sunday to see if he and his entourage could dine at Tobagi after his performance at the Future Music festival. ‘‘He loves traditional Korean food — we are so happy that he had the choice of every place in Melbourne and he chose us . . . twice,’’ Mrs Moon-Petrocco said. ‘‘He likes his food extra, extra spicey so we made sure it was. He tried some Australian grain-fed beef and I even got him a couple of VBs as well. ‘‘His entourage and dancers and everything came in before him then when he entered they all bowed in a very traditional and respectful way.’’

western suburbs. We think if you are going to have the route in the west it needs to at least stop at Sunshine station to integrate commuters from the west.’’ Mr Mulder said the route was an essential first step to linking the CBD to Melbourne Airport. ‘‘The new Albion East design follows the 2001 route from the airport boundary via new tracks through reserved land and a freight corridor. But it will use the existing rail tracks from Sunbury within the Sunshine corridor and connect with the government’s planned Melbourne metro rail tunnel.’’ Melbourne Airport spokesman Anna Gillett said the authority agreed Albion East was the best route. ‘‘We strongly encourage Victorian and federal governments to commit to funding for these rail projects to support the future growth of Victoria’s aviation connections with the world.’’ She said the authority noted the role of the planned Melbourne metro rail tunnel project to support the airport rail link. There was also a need to ease road congestion to support the investment being made by the airport.

he continuing flurry of TV cooking shows has shone a light in some very dark cupboards. Take the colleague who recently confessed to harbouring condiments that had survived transportation from England — making them at least 20 years old. When I smirkingly told her they were unlikely to become collectible she retorted: “Well, how often do you use your garam masala?” Not enough evidently, as the evacuation of the entire contents of the kitchen for a recent renovation revealed. The garam masala had gone grey and become a grandparent, while we seemed inexplicably to have cornered the market on yellow and brown mustard seeds with packet after packet, including one pre-dating the millennium. Hands up who has had spices lurking in their cupboard for more than three years? OK, so dried herbs and spices don’t go “off” or become rancid, but they do lose flavour and aroma. This is often hastened by the fact we tend to store them in precisely the wrong places: above the stove, near the sink or on a window ledge, exposing them to heat and moisture. While the cynic might suggest that putting use-by dates on herbs and spices is a clever way for the companies that produce them to sell more, they do contain volatile oils that need to be properly stored. Eighteenth century poet William Cowper nailed it when he said: “Variety’s the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavour.” But this doesn’t mean you have to go to lifechanging extremes. At a pinch you can put the pep back into your pepper and a little extra zing into things with a timely visit to a good spice merchant. — sharris@mmpgroup.com.au

A DECISION by the state government to support a new rail link between the city and Melbourne Airport via Sunshine and has met a mixed response. Sceptics say the chosen route is a re-run of a decision that should have been made 20 years ago and cast doubts on whether there was a real commitment to getting the rail link built. Others embraced the announcement by Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder, who released the findings from the $6.5 million Melbourne Airport Rail Link Study last week. The study confirmed a route known as the Albion East route, centred around an upgraded Sunshine station, after assessing 80 alternatives. Sunshine’s Geraldine Brooks said residents would welcome the project but called on the government to provide ‘‘proper, genuine and high-quality community consultation and planning’’. ‘‘Residents don’t want to see another situation where the community is kept in the dark during the planning stages — as occurred with the Deer

Park corridor of the Regional Railway Link. We want a transparent planning process that utilises existing infrastructure without disturbing the lives of residents. We want it done as a public project, not a private partnership behind closed doors,’’ she said. LeadWest business and projects manager Craig Rowley said Sunshine was only 11 minutes from the Melbourne CBD and ideally positioned to act as a feeder station for travellers wanting to access the airport from Bendigo, Ballarat and Geelong. Mr Rowley envisaged a future rail link between Melbourne and Avalon airports. He said the government would want to leverage on the investments it had already committed to in upgrading Sunshine station and building the Regional Rail Link. Public Transport Users Association president Tony Morton called for the government to ensure the airport link was a cost-effective service that would stop at suburban stations on the path to the airport, which includes Keilor East. ‘‘We don’t want to see it be a point-to-point service that won’t stop at train stations in the

Swansong for speed queen

Black Caviar returns to Moonee Valley on Friday for the last time.

Picture: Vince Caligiuri

THE Queen of Australian turf, international racing superstar Black Caviar will run her last Victorian race at Moonee Valley this Friday before heading to Sydney and then most likely a well deserved retirement. ‘The Black Bombshell’ will contest the Group 1 William Reid Stakes, a 1200-metre feature race she won in 2011. Black Caviar will be attempting to win her 24th consecutive career race. Timed to coincide with half-time of Friday night football, the race will be run at 9.55pm as the eighth and last race of the night, which is also the season finale of the Moonee Valley night racing season and the finale to the Melbourne Festival of Racing. Channel 7 will be covering the race live at halftime of their opening AFL game between Essendon and Adelaide. The course fence-line is

already covered in Black Caviar colours and images of the champion mare. Moonee Valley chief executive Michael Browell said it was an honour to have Black Caviar run her last race at the Valley where some of her famous victories have been won. ‘‘Enormous effort is being made to ensure the night is befitting of the special occasion. We are expecting a crowd of 25,000 for what will be one of the biggest nights. ‘‘Her win in the William Reid here in 2011 was one of her best; it was before she went off to probably her best win, against Haylist in the TJ [TJ Smith Stakes] in Sydney. For half a second in that race, for two strides people thought she might be in trouble then she just went woosh and got up.’’ Tickets for the night need to be pre-purchased via Ticketmaster.

Council, spend a penny

Council chief executive Neville Smith said it had not received any formal complaints about the toilet block, but confirmed a submission had been received from Mr Carroll. ‘‘We are happy to consider Mr Carroll’s proposal in developing our draft budget, which we are in the process of putting together.’’ Mr Smith said the toilets were inspected on March 14 by a council officer, who reported three missing toilet seats and some graffiti. ‘‘Unfortunately, these toilets are subject to occasional vandalism, and we encourage the community to report any damage to the council so we can attend to problems as soon as possible. ‘‘The toilet seats will be replaced and the graffiti will be removed.’’ He said the council had more than 20 public toilets across the municipality, with a works program in place to ensure they were maintained.

KEILOR Road traders are frustrated with the state of the public toilets on their shopping strip and are demanding Moonee Valley Council take urgent action to address the problem. The state of the toilets dominated a recent Niddrie Traders Association meeting and has led to Niddrie MP Ben Carroll supporting the traders by lodging an official budget submission with the council. The baby change rooms in the toilet block are padlocked shut, the women’s cubicles have no locks and the roof is falling down, while the men’s section has a broken sink and is being used as more of a storage place for empty beer cans. Mr Carroll and traders have asked the council to set aside funding in the 2013-14 budget for its upgrade. Niddrie Traders Association commit-

tee member Tess Shepherd said there were 165 shops on Keilor Road that deserved better. ‘‘They [council] did it for Moonee Ponds, putting those nice toilets on Puckle Street, but here they don’t spend a penny. We’ve complained and complained and no one does anything about it.’’ He said he couldn’t understand why it had been neglected. “The toilet block at the corner of Keilor Road and Matthews Avenue is at the gateway to Keilor Road alongside a major tram stop and the only public toilets for this shopping centre. ‘‘I’ve received constant complaints about its disrepair — it’s vital for everyone, from shoppers to traders to students, that this toilet block be replaced with new facilities.’’ Fellow trader Jan Eugene said she often had customers ask to use her bathroom as they hated the thought of using the public toilets.

As Jeffrey’s sister, with my own medical problems, I cannot thank this beautiful woman (Pia La Torre) enough. Not only did she take the time to stop for my distraught brother in the pouring rain, but she had her own child to look after. Jeff is a very emotional person at the best of times. As my brother Robbie reiterated, time is of the essence for most of our society and there are not many people out there who will go out of their way to comfort and ensure the safety of a person with a disability. Pia returns some faith within our amazingly selfish society. I don’t know what to say to you, Pia, except that your kindness and generosity are overwhelming. Thanks to you, my brother got home safely, for which our whole family is utterly grateful. Ally (via web)

Re: ‘Extend tram routes, users urge’ (Weekly, March 12) Yes, this is a great idea — capital BUT! Engineers tell me that the bridge could never take a tram. Then there is the width of Milleara and

Military roads. Even a single tram would add to the vehicular chaos already there, and if you had tram lines going in both directions it would be hell. Maddy (via web)

This is a really worthwhile project. Small extensions to the tram network around Melbourne would greatly improve connectivity and access for people and be relatively inexpensive, compared to, say, train extensions. Paul (via web)

Re: ‘Boycott call over Moonee Ponds eyesore’ (Murphy’s Lore, March 5) Don’t blame Readings. Blame residents and Council. Readings was stopped from developing the site by court action taken by one of the residents. Building 12 cinemas and a restaurant would be hard to justify in the current economic climate, so we are left with an eyesore. When we oppose a development in our neighbourhood, we have to think what the consequences will be. Do we prefer an eyesore

or development? As we are getting older we want less traffic and a peaceful neighbourhood, but we would like to have shops and a doctor next door. It’s always a trade-off, a compromise. The world needs to progress. Someone has to pay taxes for your comfortable retirement lifestyle. Dariusz (via web)

Re: For Moonee Valley traders, the state of the economy’s a mixed bag (Weekly, March 12) During my brief tenure on council I worked hard to support every shopping area within Moonee Valley. I even seconded a motion to require council to do business locally before going elsewhere. And that is critical. I recall organising a new oven and hot plate for a sports club, and staff wanted to buy it somewhere else. But I found the same model, and cheaper, at a local supplier. We must continue to support local shopping, local business, local employment. I am in our local shopping areas regularly, as we all should be. But then I’m biased; I grew up in local businesses.

Windows shook as far north as East Keilor and noise levels were well above EPA standards. The bands yelled and screamed obscenities clearly audible to Ascot Vale and Flemington residents. Traffic was chaotic, streets were left filthy; and Moonee Valley picks up the tab. For the past decade, our council has unsuccessfully tried to get the stakeholders together to establish guidelines. But if any were in place last week, they were seemingly ignored by the VRC and the promoters. At least the Showgrounds management has listened more recently to the

Essendon Lions are about to celebrate 60 years of service for which our community is truly grateful. The Lions have made the district a better place in which to live, work and grow since their formation in 1953, providing financial support for hundreds of local groups and individuals. It might be paying for a vegetable garden at St Brendan’s, Ascot Vale, or giving a powered wheelchair to a resident or joining Lions from other clubs at the coalface of bushfire and flood emergencies. Their support in the development of the bionic ear and a cervical cancer vaccine has benefited thousands. Locally, Lions have successfully developed Lionsville retirement complex and another, the Essendon Terrace, is nearing completion. The website shows 32 organisations that they have supported so generously in more recent years. The Lions will celebrate their anniversary at a

BY EUGENE BENSON SUMMER rainfall figures from across the western suburbs have confirmed what most suspected: itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long, dry, scorching hot summer. Data from Melbourne Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s network of rain gauges across Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west shows it was a drier than average summer at all suburban locations. But for storms in the last four days of summer, the rainfall totals would have been far lower â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with the February downpours accounting for a third of the total summer rain in most suburbs. Altona was the wettest place in the west with 93 millimetres, still well below its long-term average of 136 millimetres. Flemington got only 70 millimetres compared to its long-term average of 128 mm. Melbourne Water spokesman Nic McGay said the summer marked a return to more traditional hot and dry conditions, following exceptionally wet summers in 2010-11 and 2011-12. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It was a similar story in the four major catchments (Maroondah, Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Shannassy, Upper Yarra and Thomson) that harvest most of Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Water storages started summer at 81.2 per cent and ended the season at 75.8 per cent full â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a decrease of almost 100 billion litres.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Despite the decline, Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s storages finished the season at their highest end-of-summer level since 1997.

Shorten puts in longer strides for kids Residents have say in booze policy

MORE known for running internal workings of the federal Labor Party than running races — Maribyrnong MP Bill Shorten is gearing up to take part in this year’s Run for the Kids charity fun run, and is dragging his office staff along the 15-kilometre course with him. The annual fundraiser for the Royal Children’s Hospital has been a tradition for Mr Shorten since before he was elected to Parliament. ‘‘I’m just another bloke bouncing along in a sea of enthusiastic participants who like to run but clearly love the cause,’’ he said. ‘‘For a while now I’ve been wanting to do more, so this year I organised a proper team, with workmates, friends and supporters — I’ve also put the hard word on some other MPs up in Canberra to donate to the cause and I’m pleased to say they’ve chipped in.’’ Mr Shorten said raising money for the Royal Children’s and bit of inter-office competition were great motivation. ‘‘I’ve been training pretty hard this year, mainly running along the Maribyrnong River or around Lake Burley Griffin when I’m in Canberra. I try to schedule a run every

MOONEE Valley Council will this month start consultation on an amendment which looks to implement a licensed premises policy into its planning scheme. Moonee Valley mayor Narelle Sharpe said the policy aimed to minimise the negative impacts associated with new, late-night licensed premises and the expansion of existing premises. “The policy, which was endorsed by the council in late 2012, was developed with input from the local community,” she said. “The policy provides clear guidance for planners when they consider applications for a new licensed venue or the expansion of an existing venue.’’ The policy addresses issues such as noise and amenity impacts, operating hours,

safe venue design, patron numbers and transport availability. To ensure the policy carries weight with the state government, it needs to be included in the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme, and to do this the council needs to undertake a process called a Planning Scheme Amendment. “I encourage those who own a licensed venue to have a look at the document and provide feedback to the council,’’ Cr Sharpe said. ‘‘The next step is implementation into the planning scheme, so this is residents’ last opportunity to provide input.’’ Amendment C131 is up for consultation until April 26.

INBRIEF Essendon gets PSOs Protective services officers were last week deployed to three more Melbourne railway stations, including Essendon. There are now 294 PSOs patrolling 38 stations across the network from 6pm until after the last train. The member for the Western Metropolitan Region, Andrew Elsbury, said local commuters and small businesses had made it very clear that there had been a change in community perceptions of safety at railway stations since the PSOs were deployed.

On shaky electoral ground BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK ONE of the west’s two Liberal upper house MPs should be feeling ‘‘extremely vulnerable’’ as a result of Geoff Shaw’s resignation from the party, says the state member for Williamstown. Hours after the Frankston MP resigned from the Liberal Party, then-premier Ted Baillieu announced his resignation. Williamstown MP Wade Noonan said Andrew Elsbury, who was No.2 on the Liberal ticket at the last state election, should be feeling insecure. ‘‘It’s worth noting that the Liberal National Coalition holds the upper house of Parliament with essentially a one-seat majority; 21 out of 40 seats are held by Liberal and Nationals. ‘‘So that second upper house seat that’s held in the western region of Melbourne, which they won at the last election in 2010, is quite critical for them to hold if they want to be re-elected in 2014 and hold any sort of power in the upper house. ‘‘Andrew Elsbury’s seat has now become extremely vulnerable . . . he came in in 2010 and will rely on the Liberal Party vote holding up in the western region of Melbourne. ‘‘Because they won that upper seat and a few others off Labor in 2010 they now control the

upper and lower houses of the Victorian Parliament and, therefore, any legislation they introduce can be passed on every single occasion without amendment.’’ Mr Elsbury acknowledged the dynamics had changed. ‘‘It’s 21 to 19, so all it takes is one person to go over the side and you have a dead heat. ‘‘One person not turning up: not a big deal but still not happy. ‘‘It’s created a new dynamic for legislation

going through the lower house. ‘‘Having an independent [Mr Shaw] means there is another person in the Parliament who needs to be worked with to get legislation through. ‘‘If you look at the majority of legislation it gets through without any problems.’’ Mr Elsbury laughed off suggestions that he should be feeling worried. ‘‘A man who lost 13 per cent at the last election saying I’m vulnerable? OK.’’

H

push for an English language school. And it just made sense.’’ Today the school operates across five sites – Kensington, Footscray, Werribee, St Albans and Point Cook – and has about 500 students. The world’s trouble spots are often reflected in the enrolment demographic. ‘‘If they have intact schooling, so they haven’t been in a refugee camp and they haven’t been in a war zone where their schooling has been affected for up to two years, they stay for six months,’’ De Zilwa says. ‘‘If they are a refugee and have had interrupted schooling, then they are entitled to stay for a year.’’ The school mirrors a mainstream school but with a focus on the English language. Students take part in English classes, history, geography, social studies, maths, science and physical education. ‘‘By mirroring what a mainstream school does they get the idea of what it’s like to be in an Australian classroom ... the context, the culture, and the sorts of expectations that teachers have. A lot of emphasis is on what they bring with them, rather than they’re empty vessels and they have to learn all these things. They come from very rich cultures themselves and basically, that Australia is better for having them.’’ The school has 60 staff across its campuses, including 14 multicultural aids of various languages. De Zilwa says the school often encourages mainstream teachers to visit and see what it’s like for a child in their first phase of being in an Australian classroom. ‘‘An ESL teacher can actually see the mark of progress much more clearly than a mainstream teacher that is not clued in. You’ll see things like a child going through a silent period and not be worried about it. A mainstream teacher might say, ‘Ohhhh, that child isn’t talking’. It’s perfectly normal for a child from another language not to talk for a while and to be quiet in the classroom and to actually be absorbing a lot of what they hear and see. Then a few months later they start producing.’’ De Zilwa describes her staff as passionate in wanting to give newly arrived children the best start possible. ‘‘It’s more than a teaching job. I think it’s a calling. Because our numbers over the past seven to 10 years have been refugees, they have been very switched-on to the particular troubles that refugees bring with them and the challenges they have entering a new country. ‘‘It’s a huge thing. Somebody once said that there are three major things that can happen in your life: the birth of a child, the death of a member of the immediate family; or leaving a country. And for a refugee family they would have had all three.’’

Laurence Guttman has been teaching at the school for five years and still relishes the challenge.‘‘We get kids who are complete beginners and kids who speak [English] quite well, so the challenges are different. With complete beginners you have to do basic stuff,

anibal Solomon arrived in Australia eight months ago as a refugee from Ethiopia in search of a better life. His father had been living here for six years so Hanibal left his homeland, and his mother, for a fresh start soon after becoming a teenager. ‘‘I came here to live. There are so many opportunities here,’’ he says with wide-eyed optimism. Confident and bright, Hanibal had learned snippets of English at school back home and speaks the language freely. ‘‘That’s why I’m a little bit good at it,’’ he smiles, almost apologetically. Like many newly arrived youngsters, the introduction to his education in Australia begins at the Western English Language School, a multicampus government school offering English as a Second Language (ESL) programs for primary and secondary students across the west. Students stay from six months to a year, depending on their level of education. Hanibal is progressing well and will most likely be at the school for one more term before enrolling at a mainstream high school. Alongside Hanibal is Tony, a 17-year-old from Indonesia who tells a similar story of moving to Australia to be with his mother and stepfather. ‘‘The first time I come here I was very happy,’’ Tony says describing his first impressions of his new home. ‘‘But after one week I was very sad because I lost my old friends. I miss them.’’ Tony wants to be successful in his education but is adamant he will return home to work and be closer to his friends, father, and grandmother. Looking back, the Western English Language School, like the cultural mix of faces that fleetingly pass through its doors, has been resilient since day one. In the late ’90s its predecessor, the Tottenham English Language Centre, had been attached to Tottenham Community Secondary College. The college was involved in a merger and closed, leaving the language centre on its own with just five classes. Principal Yolette De Zilwa, a cheerful and kind-natured woman whom students greet warmly as they pass her in the corridors, led the charge to become a fully fledged school. She had previously taught at mainstream schools but chose to gain ESL qualifications, realising many children from foreign backgrounds were being thrown in the deep end at mainstream schools without ever having being taught how the English language works. A successful 18 month-long campaign resulted in the Western English Language School being opened in 2000. ‘‘The western region’s got the second highest number of newly arrived migrants in Melbourne and there wasn’t a school here,’’ De Zilwa says. ‘‘It was wonderful for the parents and the communities who supported the whole

Yolette De Zilwa’s vision for a full-time English language school has come to fruition.

‘It was wonderful for the parents and the communities who supported the whole push for an English language school. And it just made sense’ which can be a little frustrating for the teachers and the students sometimes, because you know the kids are capable of bigger ideas.’’ Today Guttman is teaching maths to a group of half a dozen students aged 13-17, predominantly of Vietnamese background, which presents another challenge. ‘‘What is difficult in this class, for example, is that 10 students all speak the same language, which isn’t ideal, because it’s obviously very tempting for them to speak their own language. I like to have more of a spread.’’ Guttman seems genuinely fond of his work but concedes he can take the kids only so far. ‘‘They’re all quite good at maths already, but their biggest challenge when they go to a mainstream school will be understanding both what a teacher says and written problems. It’s a little frustrating. ‘‘In South Australia, for instance, the kids get two years [at a language school], which makes much more sense. It’s just not enough time here to get to know them. They progress obviously, but if you teach a kid for a year you see a lot more development. That’s one of the more frustrating parts of the job. They’re constantly rotating the door with new kids coming in every term.’’ De Zilwa is well aware of the problem. ‘‘We’ve had quite a few success stories. And a few very distressing stories. The distressing stories are around whether we have been able to enrol them for long enough and they

probably could have done with two years. ‘‘The older ones that have had interrupted schooling present the greatest challenge for mainstream schools because you might get them in 12 months from no literacy to grade 2 literacy and then they’ll go to year 9. ‘‘They’ll go into an age-equivalent class and they simply don’t have the skills to be able to deal with year 9 subjects. And it’s not their fault, but they take it personally. They quite often drop out of school.’’ Still, De Zilwa believes there is much hope for the future and the positives far outweigh the negatives. Asked if she feels she has achieved the vision set out for the school more than a decade ago, she replies; ‘‘I like to think so.’’ She points to a new assessment tool that gauges a child’s starting point and pinpoints their progress each term as one of the better results. ‘‘We were never able to do that. We relied a whole lot more on anecdotal data,’’ she says proudly. ‘‘For the first time we are actually able to confidently say what a difference our program makes to student learning.’’ Even so, De Zilwa is under no illusions. Some students will make it. Some won’t. It’s the real world out there. ‘‘There’s lots of schools in this area that have very strong ESL programs. It’s a matter of them landing in one of those schools. I don’t care how interrupted your schooling is. If you really work hard at it you can get there.’’ I

NEWS

Fauna in our midst shouldn’t be fair game From kangaroos in Keilor East to possums in Moonee Ponds, you may be surprised where the wild things are, as SARAH HARRIS reports. n the year to the end of last month, Wildlife Victoria received more than 3500 calls to help injured native birds, mammals and reptiles from across Melbourne’s west and north-west suburbs. Creatures great and small had been variously hit by vehicles, attacked by dogs or cats, become entangled in fences, trapped in buildings, displaced and, in some instances, the victims of deliberate human cruelty. “It is happening more and more,” Wildlife Victoria relationship manager Amy Amato says of the grim toll. “We think it has to do with the development going on around the fringe and the lack of planning. The habitat is just getting decimated. “The developers have no plans for wildlife corridors for these animals to be able to move through into areas where they are safer, so they get pushed out onto roads and then they get get disoriented and move closer and closer into town.”

Just how much wildlife exists in longestablished inner urban areas is underscored by Wildlife Victoria statistics which show more rescues in Moonee Valley than in rapidly growing Melton and Moorabool combined. Moonee Valley Council is among the most proactive environmentally with more than 30 hectares of new conservation area created during the past four years. It is home to more than 100 fauna species and 170 native flora species. The fauna range from the nationally significant powerful owl and the grey-headed flying fox to the iconic platypus in the Maribyrnong and swamp wallabies on the river flats as close to the city as Essendon. Within the next month, the council is due to turn the first sod on a $460,000 project to restore the natural stormwater course — sent underground in the concrete craze of the ’60s — through the river red gums in Napier Park. One of only two stands of river red gums surviving in Melbourne, the Napier Park trees

and the associated grassy woodlands foster an entire ecosystem, from the microbats, possums, cockatoos and lorikeets to the lizards and insects living in the leaf litter. “It has been very interesting how you manage a natural environment in a non-natural situation and that is the essence of urban ecology, I guess,” council environment co-ordinator Sheridan Blunt says. With scarcely 20 per cent of the mammals that existed at the time of European settlement surviving in the inner suburbs, it is interesting to see biodiversity now slowly increasing as environmental awareness grows.

To report sick, injured or orphaned wildlife, phone 1300 094 535. Wildlife Victoria is looking for volunteers. For more information, go to wildlifevictoria.org.au

PROFILE ●

Love and persistence beat ‘the system’ BY ROBERT FEDELE TRATHMORE resident Robyn Oyeniyi is getting back to ‘‘typical family life’’ after an ordeal battling Australia’s immigration system. In her book Love Versus Goliath, Robyn has written about her fight to have her husband John returned to Australia after he was removed from the country. Her story begins when her husband, originally from Nigeria, came to Australia as an asylum seeker in 2008. He had fled his homeland after being beaten almost to death during a period of political turmoil. Robyn and John met and fell in love while he was living in mandatory community detention. His protection visa was later denied and he was removed in April, 2010. A month later Robyn flew to Nigeria where the pair were married. For safety reasons, John later moved to Qatar. He was unable to take his four children, and because the government wouldn’t grant them visas to come to Australia and live with Robyn, they were forced to live in Nigeria with friends. Robyn was soon home, and alone. She put every ounce of effort towards getting John and

her newfound family home. She describes being horrified by the government’s lack of compassion. She finally won her appeal in early 2011 and came to the wonderful realisation that she would soon have her family back. ‘‘It was tough because I felt as if the government was hanging me out to dry,’’ she says. Robyn says the successful appeal took time to sink in. ‘‘I still didn’t know. Waking up every morning thinking, do I still have a husband? Do I still have stepchildren? It really wasn’t until they got off the plane [that it felt real].’’ Robyn says she chose to tell her story so others could use it as an example. ‘‘We need to be very careful as a people to ensure our rights aren’t trampled on. I feel it was a lot of struggle that we needn’t have gone through.’’ Robyn says it was difficult adjusting back to family life, which for her husband and herself included getting to know the children all over again. But the wait was worth it.

Pizza too good to bypass HILARY McNEVIN EATING OUT

t Alexander Road offers a feast of restaurants and cafes — Greek, Japanese and Mexican cuisines are on offer, as are numerous wine bars. But what’s a food strip without a good Italian restaurant? At No. 528 on the busy road, Italy 528 easily carries the flag for great Italian food. The open room, with a huge mural to one side, white walls and dark wood furniture, is stylish and welcoming. The restaurant, open now for two years, was previously a motorcycle shop that was gutted and renovated, incorporating a wood-fired oven for chef and co-owner Antonio Caruso to weave

his pizza magic. Called variously a pizzeria and cucina (kitchen), its pizzas are a menu highlight, but there are some tempting starters including a simple bruschetta of tomatoes, basil and extra virgin olive oil ($9.50). Equally delicious, we discovered, was a plate of buffalo mozzarella and San Daniele prosciutto ($22) — the luscious cheese and fine slices of prosciutto complementing each other with subtle flavours. The pizza list takes up much of the menu with a varied selection topped with good, fresh produce, and combinations using only a handful of ingredients so that the quality of each is highlighted. Apart from the Margherita (small $8/ large $15), all the pizzas come in just one generous size. A sturdy, slightly seasoned base is topped with sweet tomato, cow’s milk mozzarella and the odd basil leaf. It’s quite simply delicious. Other pizzas include a Capricciosa

($20), topped with ham, olives, artichokes and mushrooms. Ours was sweet, salty and savoury; a delicious, classic pizza. When I asked for a Broccolotta ($20) topped with fontina and burata cheeses, broccoli and lemon, I was told there was no broccoli available but they happily served it to me with zucchini instead. It was a thoughtful gesture and proved to be a great pizza with saltiness from the fontina and creaminess from the burata cut through with the addition of lemon and a bite from the zucchini. If you want good Italian on Mt Alexander Road, or the west in general, Italy 528 is certainly worth a try.

Clinic fills the dental gap with flair HE confidence to eat, speak and laugh comfortably while wearing dentures is exactly what the dental prosthetists at Keilor Road Denture Clinic in Niddrie aim to give their patients. The team includes Steven Fraser, John Heron and recently returned Neill Park, each having 20 to 30 years-plus experience in the industry. They are up to date with the latest denture technology, including mini-implants. “Full lower dentures are the most difficult for patients to wear, but mini-implants are a costeffective and high-quality way of stabilising clients’ lower dentures, thus ensuring selfconfidence,” says owner Steven Fraser. “Mini-implants can be placed quickly and easily by an experienced dentist. We can then modify clients’ dentures with components to ‘snap it in’ or provide them with a new single or set of dentures. “And as humans we are living longer. Our digestive system starts with our teeth, so miniimplants will place people in good stead for the rest of their lives,” Mr Fraser says. Other denture services and products available are full upper and lower dentures, partial

dentures, implant retained over dentures, soft liners, relines, repairs and mouth guards. “We provide a prompt and professional service,” Mr Fraser says. ‘‘Our collaborative approach to treatment, combined with a great relationship with many local dentists, allows us to provide the ultimate in denture care.” Mr Fraser says a person’s dentures should support their lips and ensure their face and smile retain a natural look. The Dental Prosthetist Association recommends replacing dentures every seven to eight years. Established for seven years, the Niddrie clinic supports Veterans Affairs and the Victorian Denture Scheme voucher. No referral is required. Keilor Road Denture Clinic, shops 8-9 at 344 Keilor Road, Niddrie, opens 9am-5pm, Monday-Thursday, and 9am-4pm, Friday. Inquiries: 9379 2200 or keilorroaddentureclinic.com.au

Laugh with confidence: John Heron, Neill Park and Steve Fraser help patients feel comfortable with the latest denture technology.

Are your dentures loose? SNAP IT IN DENTURE Are they causing pain? Trouble eating or talking? Does your denture spend more time out than in? If any answers are "YES" consider a consultation to talk about mini implants to stabilise your denture. We can work with your referring dentist or specialist to determine suitability for implant placement. If you don't have a regular practitioner we can refer you to a qualified practitioner in your local area. We'll then make new dentures or modify your old denture to snap in or out.

Good parenting, by mouse click BY CAROLE LEVY n a world where 22 per cent of parents in Australia admit they have no control over their young children’s and teens’ online activities, the issue of protection from cyber bullying is of major concern. This is especially alarming as 78 per cent of parents claim to control their children’s computer use, yet just one in three has internet filtering in place. Craig Kennedy, owner of Point Cook and Moonee Ponds Telstra stores, believes BigPond Security can help monitor children’s online behaviour. ‘‘Cyber bullying is a scary prospect for both children and parents,’’ he says. ‘‘According to 2008 Microsoft/Galaxy research, 31 per cent of 14 to 17 year olds have experienced cyber bullying — that’s a daunting statistic. ‘‘So what can parents do to ensure their child’s online safety? Firstly, they need to communicate with their kids and get involved and familiar with technology.’’ Telstra Safe Social is a BigPond Security feature that alerts parents when: ■ The conversation on a child’s account ‘turns nasty’, which can indicate cyber bullying ■ Words being used in their child’s feed indicate something of concern might happen ■ The photos or videos they are watching might be unsuitable ■ They add new friends, especially those ‘out of their network’ or potentially age-inappropriate Parental Control, Mr Kennedy says, is another BigPond Security feature that can give parents further peace of mind. ‘‘There are easy-to-understand protection policies tailored to ensure young kids and teens are accessing websites suitable for their age. It allows them to connect only when parents think it’s suitable.’’ Parents are encouraged to report cyber bullying to their child’s school and to their internet service provider.

Online security: BigPond has features to keep kids cyber safe. Anti-phishing is another BigPond Security feature that parents may find helpful. ‘‘Children can unknowingly place themselves in risky situations by posting personal information online. Once it’s done, it can be very difficult to remove. This can include their name or address, photos, a mobile phone number, school

COVER STORY

URBAN AMBITION \ 1 EXAMINER STREET, MARIBYRNONG 3132

M

eticulously designed and constructed, this contemporary dwelling in Maribyrnong’s Edgewater estate is one in a million. Catering for a young family or those who love to entertain, the rendered dwelling showcases myriad architectural features, such as a spiral staircase to the rooftop deck with panoramic views and curved feature walls. On one of the estate’s largest blocks and with the bonus of a north-facing backyard, the property also comes with a five-star energy rating and council-approved plans for a swimming pool. Five years young and requiring a few cosmetic touches to restore it to as-new condition, the chic dwelling of about 30 squares has luxury at every turn. Behind a suspension bridge-like path and lowmaintenance gardens, the understated entry opens to a landing with polished spotted-gum f loorboards and carpeted sunken lounge room with a wood heater, soaring ceilings and striking chandelier. Through sliding doors is a semi-circular theatre room equipped with automated curtains, speakers and shelving. It is complemented by a compact study or hobby room, powder room and guest bedroom or fourth bedroom with built-in robes. Also on this level is a luxurious galley laundry with separate drying room, and a meals area to the side of the kitchen, which incorporates an island bench with waterfall-edge Caesarstone benchtops and De Dietrich stainless-steel appliances, inbuilt coffee machine, Rinnai Infinity temperature-controlled hot water system and double sink. Doors open to the rear paved terrace with gas-mains Grand Turbo barbecue. A high-span double garage with remote-controlled door has a drive-through roller door to a third space, shed and workshop. The indoor ground level is illuminated by light from the Japanese garden, while a small open-tread timber staircase ascends to two double bedrooms with built-in robes, desk and ceiling fan, and tiled bathroom. A bridge that passes the void leads into a nursery and storage room that forms part of the main bedroom suite.

Mini sets cracking pace

The Biggest, Best & Cheapest in the West 175/70/13 - $58

THIS MONTHS SPECIAL 205/65/15 - $69

215/60/16 - $99

235/45/17 - $105

Ewan Kennedy reviews the seventh edition elcome to Mini edition seven. No one else on this planet can stretch one basic shape into so many different designs. When the Mini was revived in 2001 as a follow-up to the highly successful Mini first introduced in 1959, it came in a single body style. Amazingly, the company has just introduced the seventh iteration. Mini Paceman is its name, and style is its game. Basically, Paceman is a Mini Countryman with only two doors and a different back end. It’s a sort of a cross between an SUV and a coupe. Paceman is sold as a four-seater, but those in the rear had better be of modest dimensions unless the front seat occupants are willing to sacrifice legroom. Surprisingly, headroom isn’t a major problem because the roof line is sculpted to make room for your uppermost region. Boot space isn’t too bad at 330 litres. We loved the feel and look of the Paceman’s interior during our drive from central Brisbane up into the soggy hinterlands.

W

Unique: Looks like nothing else on the road, and that’s the way the Mini Paceman is meant to be. Interior styling is right out there in a continuation of the Mini tradition. Naturally, there’s a huge range of options and Paceman buyers seem sure to try to make their vehicle genuinely unique. Mini Paceman is sold in two variants: the $35,900 Cooper with a 90 kilowatt 1.6-litre engine and the $44,100 Cooper S with the same engine plus a turbocharger to lift its peak output to 135kW. On-road costs also have to be factored in.

Drizzle puts Mores in box seat BY TEO PELLIZZERI STRATHMORE’S final-round win against Tullamarine may prove priceless as rain threatened to make an anti-climax of the Victorian Turf Cricket Association season at the weekend. Persistent players still managed to eke out 42 overs in the North Division grand final as Strathmore reached 3-77 when stumps were called. The minor premier edged out Tullamarine for top spot earlier this month with a victory that gave Strathmore a rain-out advantage of 7.44 points. But in addition to Sunday, played after The Weekly went to print, there are two more days available should they be needed this weekend. Strathmore won the toss and batted at Donald McLean Reserve in Spotswood, losing openers

Matt Reynolds (5) and Christian Hewitt (8) to be 2-24. But Scott Sanders steadied the innings with 40. In Senior Division, Greenvale elected to bat but the decision backfired as the Old Mentonians skittled the minor premier for just 71 on the opening day at Crofts Reserve. Jon Kent (23) was last man out and saved Greenvale from the embarrassment of a sub-50 score after the team slumped to 8-39. Kent and Luke Rosbrook (nine) shared the biggest partnership of the innings, just 22 runs. Old Mentonians’ John Seeary had a day out with 6-24. Day two continued after The Weekly went to print. In North A1, the coin toss proved all important at Walter Street Reserve as West Coburg sent

PEGS in and took four wickets in the 23 overs of play completed on day one. PEGS were reeling at 4-26 when play was abandoned for the day. In North B1, Craigieburn was sent in by Haig Fawkner and overcame a 2-19 start to reach 3-79 in the 28 overs of play. In West B1, St Andrews endured a nightmare 22.4 overs on day one as it slumped to 7-31 after winning the toss and batting against Werribee Centrals. In North C1, Strathmore attacked on its home deck Syd McGain Oval and got the rewards as it plastered 1-126 off just 22.5 overs against Aberfeldie. Matt McConville’s 88no bucked the trend of bowler-friendly conditions. Go to mooneevalleyweekly.com.au for updated scores from VTCA and NWMCA

Bombers pipped at the post by Dandenong BY TEO PELLIZZERI RAIN punished Essendon-Maribyrnong Park on Saturday as Dandenong upset the Bombers chasing a revised target to qualify for the Essteele Premier Firsts grand final. EMP was a back-to-back champion chasing a three-peat but will not contest the grand final in Victorian Women’s Cricket Association’s top division after the three-wicket defeat. Dandenong won with four balls to spare at Aberfeldie Park, chasing down a revised total of 99 off 20 overs after EMP had been bowled out

for 134 off 49.5 overs. The Bombers lost the toss and were sent in, starting poorly in a 5-20 slump. Cassie Brock (41) and Kristen Beams (35) went about rebuilding the innings with a 76-run stand for the sixth wicket, ending for both batters on the same score. Emma Kearney (21no) and Lou Caluzzi (12) pushed the score past 100. Australian international Julie Hunter proved near impossible to score off, sending down seven maidens in 10 overs for Dandenong, finishing with figures of 4-6. Emma Kearney (2-12) captured two early

wickets for EMP but Erica Kershaw (27) and Kelly Applebee (38) steadied Dandenong, with Julie Hunter’s 19 pushing the score to 3-92. EMP hit back with just a handful of runs left to defend. Molly Strano (1-19), Emily McIntyre (2-25) and two run-outs in a collapse of 4-2 left Dandenong 7-94, still five runs from victory. But Alana King (four not-out) and Emma Gallagher (four not-out) held their nerve in the final over to seal victory with four balls to spare. Box Hill advanced from the other semi-final after its match against Brunswick Park was abandoned after just 26.2 overs.
