Reforms steer cabbies ‘to pension’ BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM

pic credit

EAST Keilor taxi licence holders say their life’s work and savings will be destroyed if new taxi industry reforms are passed by the state government this week. Carmelo Di Benedelto and Vassilios Spanos are angry about the reforms and say they will dilute the value of their life investments by allowing open entry into the taxi industry. Until now, licences have been heavily restricted and sold for up to $525,000 . Under the new reforms, from July 1 next year, they will be available to anyone to rent for $22,000 a year, indexed to the consumer price index. The state government commissioned an inquiry into the industry last year after a Transport Department survey found fewer than 60 per cent of customers felt safe or were satisfied with taxis. The inquiry, headed by former Australian Competition and Consumer Commission chairman Professor Allan Fels, made 145

Stressed: Carmelo Di Benedelto, Chris Makdessi and Vassilios Spanos.

recommendations, including that the cost of licences be slashed and restricted to five years. Opposition amendments to proposed reforms, including offering compensation for current licence holders will be voted on this week and if passed, would require the government to consult further with taxi licence owners.

Mr Di Benedelto, 55, spent almost $400,000 on two taxi licences between 1991 and 1995. He owes the bank almost $500,000. “They have hung us out to dry,” he said. “My life savings were my taxi licences and if these reforms are passed they will be worth nothing. ‘‘They have attacked everybody in the industry from top to bottom

and now we don’t know what the future holds. ” Mr Di Benedelto fears he will lose his home and everything he has worked for over 30 years. Mr Spanos also borrowed more than $125,000 to purchase a licence in 1993. He said the most distressing aspect of the reforms is that the licence owners had not been properly consulted by the government. “Many of these licence holders are older men who have been in the industry for a long time and consider their licence their superannuation,” he said. “They are vulnerable migrants who aren’t educated and have worked hard their whole lives to get where they are only to have their life savings taken by the state government.” Mr Spanos’s wife Sandy broke down as she spoke of the emotional distress the reforms have put on her family. “We have both worked hard and done everything the right way, but if this reform is passed we will end up on the pension.”

A question of depth





he badge on the barista’s lapel featured a hand reaching out of water, and it begged the question. Are you waving or drowning, I asked. Giving the milk jug a knock on the bench, he paused to consider for a few seconds. “I think, most days, it’s a little of both. Isn’t it the same for everyone?” he mused. The philosopher’s foam, I thought glibly, but found what he said stuck with me through the day. I took the call, as I left the coffee shop, from a friend who excitedly revealed he was about to have his first short story published. Owen’s definitely waving, I thought. Then, in the next breath, he admitted he’d never in his life been more anxious. He couldn’t believe it would be well received, much less read, by anyone. It wasn’t the publication of his work he cared about as much as others’ reaction. Without approbation, would he sink? Would his writerly ambitions be scuppered? Often it comes down to the individual. Whether you’re a coffee cup half full or half empty kind of person will determine if you are lapping up the crema or out of your depth. Sometimes, though, it’s not a question of choice. Really, why pretend to embrace a situation as “a character-building challenge” when it’s patently an awful ordeal? Modern society’s obsession with the positive leaves little room for genuine feeling or emotion. But our failures, our sorrows, our regrets, our hardships are part of the sum of the human experience. And even if that outstretched hand is clutching a coffee, it’s probably best never to assume anyone can tread water for too long.

TWO Mount Alexander Secondary College students are thrilled to have embarked on the trip of a lifetime. Year 11 students Phuong-Nhan Le-Pham and Callum Aristotle left for the Kokoda Track on Friday morning after months of gruelling weekly training for the 96-kilometre trek at the site of one of the most significant battles fought by Australians in the Second World War. The duo are joined by police from Moonee Valley and the city operations response unit, 18 year 11 students from St Bernard’s College and Mount Alexander Secondary College, more than a dozen Moonee Valley sponsors and business owners, two teachers and two paramedics. Phuong-Nhan, 17, told the Weekly he couldn’t wait to start the trek and had applied to take part in the program at the beginning of the year. “After all the training we have done, I can’t wait to get started,” he says. “The biggest thing I am worried about is finishing the track in one piece. I think there will be ups and downs for all of us along the way, but I can’t wait for that sense of accomplishment at the end of the trek.” Phuong-Nhan says the students have been training every Tuesday night for two hours, their backs strapped with 20-kilogram backpacks. They have also spent every second Saturday in the Dandenong Ranges and Macedon Ranges, carrying up to 15 kilograms for six hours while they trekked. Phuong-Nhan says he is also looking forward to creating friendships with the St Bernard’s students and experiencing firsthand the courage of Australian soldiers who used the track in the war. Callum, 17, says he was drawn to overseas travel and learning about the culture of Papua New Guinea. “The training was really tough at first, but I think we are all really prepared for it now,” he says. “I can’t wait to visit all the villages along the way and get to know the locals who live

alongside the track and see the way they live.” Callum, says he heard about the program through a friend who completed the trail last year. “I don’t think any of the students have ever done anything like this before so it will be interesting to see how we go,” he says. “But I think we will just support and look out for each other because ultimately it is about all working towards the same goal, and to get to the finish line we need to work together.” Mount Alexander College teacher Bernard Street, who also left for the trek last week, says

he hopes the adventure teaches the students the poignant history of the Second World War and the importance of mateship and courage. The trek is expected to take eight days in 35-degree heat, with students trekking up to 14 hours a day. The group will return to Australia next Monday.

Leagues jump on abusive posts

Traders angry over strip upgrade BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM

By Tara Murray

Rebecca Hallas

Social space: Leake Street traders are happy with the present vibe of the shopping strip, and believe the revamp could destroy business.

C u i s i ne

THE Essendon and Riddell district football leagues are cracking down on players and officials commenting on social media sites. Officials from the leagues say they have been made aware of Facebook pages that use their official logos and include offensive comments, including racist and homophobic remarks, about other players and teams. The Weekly has been made aware of four pages the leagues want shut. Two of the pages, ‘Shit RDFL players don’t say’ and ‘Shit Romsey players don’t say’ have been shut after complaints to Facebook while EDFL officials are still trying to have ‘Shit EDFL players never say’ and ‘EDFL memes’ shut. Many of the comments have been written by junior footballers with no attempt to hide their identities. A quick glance at sites revealed plenty of expletive-filled exchanges, including one between a player and umpire. EDFL general manager Marc Turri said clubs would be contacted about posting on the sites. “If players or officials are found to bring the game into disrepute [they] can be sanctioned, which includes suspension,” he said. Last week the RDFL wrote to all clubs about posting on these pages: “Any player posting, commenting on or creating [such] pages . . . will receive an automatic minimum twoweek suspension with no appeal,” league operations manager Toby Boyle stated in the letter. “The comments and contents of this page and pages similar to it have a damaging effect on the RDFL,” he wrote.

LUNCH SPECIAL Rice & Vermicelli 90

OUTRAGED Essendon traders say the Moonee Valley Council’s draft concept plan to upgrade Leake Street has the potential to put them out of business. Late last week, Moonee Valley Council planning officers hosted a community and traders’ seminar on the council’s draft concept plan to improve the shopping strip. The council endorsed the plan in September last year to make Leake Street more pedestrian-friendly and improve traffic flow, including partially closing the street from Mount Alexander Road. The upgrade includes a proposed civic plaza, new furniture, landscaping, lighting and an upgraded footpath. It is estimated to cost more than $600,000. Odette Boyle, owner of Village Blooms of Essendon, said the proposal had the potential to destroy business in the shopping strip. The plan proposes to reduce car parking in the street by nine spaces. Ms Boyle said lack of parking was already a serious issue, and while she fully supported improvements for pedestrian safety in the street, speed humps or traffic lights could slow speeding drivers who used Leake Street as a shortcut to Mount Alexander and Lincoln roads. “This proposal will not be beneficial for traders at all,” she said. “Already businesses are struggling to keep afloat. By cutting half the flow of traffic into the street, people won’t stop here like they do now and less people will be able to find a park readily so they will continue on to shop in Keilor Road or other nearby shopping strips. “We already lose so many customers a day because they simply can’t find a park.”

Ms Boyle said she would sell and relocate if council approved the plan. She also raised concerns about drivers not being able to do U-turns if the proposal was approved. “We quite often have ambulances coming to Leake Street to pick up patients from the medical centre across the road and with only one loading zone where will these ambulances go if they can’t find a park? “Instead of doing a U-turn, they will be forced to do another lap around.” Olive Tree shoe store owner Tina, who did not want her last name published, also opposed the plans. She said traders submitted a proposal with hundreds of signatures objecting to the plan late last year. Moonee Valley mayor Narelle Sharpe said there was limited open space in the Essendon North retail area. She said the aim of the plan was to create a safe and accessible space for shoppers and traders to retreat from the hustle and bustle of Mount Alexander Road. “Leake Street is an ideal location for the council to explore the opportunity to increase open space and create a vibrant social gathering space that attracts more shoppers,” she said. She also said it was essential that the ‘‘dangerous’’ intersections on either end of Leake Street were improved. “This draft plan aims to calm the traffic, allow exit-only traffic onto Mount Alexander Road and prioritise the needs of walkers and cyclists.” The draft concept plan is open for public comment. The closing date for feedback is July 22.

Council, don’t trade away our village showing enthusiasm for the scaled-down model tabled earlier this month. The residents association acknowledged the reduced heights and residences, but there was no sign of them watering down their stringent opposition to the plan. Our council has had a lot more to say, identifying car parking, traffic congestion, heritage and infrastructure impacts, and public transport pressures as issues the racing club has yet to address.

alan murphy murphy’s lore


he future of Leake Street Essendon North has certainly brought the shopping centre traders and Moonee Valley council into serious conflict. The council wants to create a civic plaza which it says will be inviting, safer and more accessible for residents, shoppers and workers. And to get away from the hustle and bustle of Mount Alexander Road. But most of us like North Essendon village the way it is. One of the joys of the village is to see residents keeping the many coffee shops busy throughout the day – especially at weekends when there’s no shortage of friends having a tĂŞte-Ă -tĂŞte on the wider footpath. The council began the hard sell last Saturday with a ‘walkshop’ to sell its controversial plan. But the traders’ response has been to invite customers to sign petitions opposing the planned changes. The Council heard the traders’ views at a meeting on Friday morning. It initially thought it had trader support, but strong opposition emerged last year when it was realised the planned plaza would lead to a significant reduction in parking spaces.

Shelters a great investment


Issues remain: Moonee Valley Racing Club’s revised masterplan has received a mixed response.

As always, the cycling lobby gets in on the act with the council trying to justify the plaza because of the need to prioritise the needs of “cyclists and walkers�. The battle has a long way to run.

Plans may run off course Moonee Valley Racing Club must be disappointed with the lukewarm community response to its revised plans to develop the racecourse. Few if any local leaders are publicly

Have you noticed how clean the bus shelters are in our city? Installed about a decade ago, the shelters were the brilliant idea of then mayor Mark Kennedy. Ongoing maintenance is critical and the contractors Adshell do a magnificent job regularly cleaning and repairing every shelter throughout Moonee Valley. The council didn’t get much recognition for the initiative at the time, but the shelters have been a great investment.

The final word... Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.

Book drive for Bali’s orphans BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM

community awards

Nominations open The Spirit of Moonee Valley Community Awards acknowledge the City’s everyday heroes.

Scott McNaughton

A GRADE 6 pupil at St Christopher’s Primary School in Airport West has collected hundreds of picture books that will be donated to needy children in Bali. Olivia, 12, said she was inspired to start a picture book drive as part of the school’s Spirit in Action community service program. The program requires grade 6 children to involve themselves in community service in preparation for their confirmation. Olivia has collected more than 300 books from the community and will send them to orphanages in Bali through the Marsh Foundation, a charity that works to improve the everyday lives of Balinese people. “Lots of people were going to nursing homes and visiting kindergartens, but I wanted to do something different,” she said. “I know that education can be really bad in Bali especially for children who are really poor and who don’t have families to take care of them. So I wanted to do something that would improve their education and help them with their English.” Curriculum and Religious Education coordinator Renae Gentile said the community service program encouraged the

Upbeat move more than a matter of principal By Goya Dmytryshchak

Michael Copp

FORMER school principal Jeff Bell has graduated from the Victoria Police Academy to become possibly Victoria’s oldest probationary police constable at 56. The Airport West resident will become a full constable in December. After six years at Altona Meadows Primary School, Mr Bell led the merger of three Laverton schools over four years. Then he decided to follow his burning ambition. “I always wanted to be a cop but back in ’74 when I did VCE – or HSC as we called it then – there was a height restriction,” he said. “I think you had to be 5 foot 8 [inches] or 5 foot 10. I was never going to make that.” In the old measurement, he is about 5 foot 7 or 170 centimetres. “I think they got to the stage where they wanted to recruit big, tough, strong males. But with the changing nature of society you need people who have got not only the physical attributes but other attributes of

understanding. People might relate [better] to an older person, they might relate to a younger person. They might relate to a male better or a female better.’’ For the martial arts practitioner and cricketer who always maintained his fitness, keeping up with younger colleagues or chasing crooks is not an issue. But he’s more likely to be talking than scaling fences. He says the hardest job he has attended during his training with Keilor Downs and Brunswick police was an attempted suicide. “That’s always challenging,” Constable Bell said. “Or a code 12 car accident where a person’s been seriously injured. Or dealing with people with an intellectual disability or a mental disorder and trying to communicate with them.” So, which is more stressful – teaching or policing? “They’re both challenging jobs, both very interesting, both at times unpredictable. “I recommend to anyone to join the police force or follow their dream.”

Making the cut: Jeff Bell has taken up a new beat, realising his dream of becoming a police officer.

Mamma’s help for MS sufferers


Michael Copp

A FUND-RAISER at a Niddrie cafe raised more than $14,000 for multiple sclerosis research and support of sufferers. Almost 100 people attended Lets do Lunch for MS, hosted by Essendon resident Jacquie Brown at Mamma Lina’s restaurant in Keilor Road last Wednesday. Ms Brown, who was diagnosed with MS in 2005, has hosted an annual fund-raiser for MS for the past four years. Ms Brown said Mamma Lina’s owners, Sam and Jim Agostino and Jake Ludwig, jumped at the chance to host the lunch last year and signed up to do it again. Ms Brown said she was overwhelmed at the generosity of the community. “It is just so heart-warming and I cannot believe the love, support and generosity of people,” she said. “I think when you are diagnosed with a condition like MS it’s so important to not let the condition define who you are. “I look in the mirror and I know I’m still me and I don’t have time to

feel sorry for myself because I am surrounded by so many beautiful people.” Ms Brown, a regular customer at the cafe, said the generosity of the owners was heart-warming. “They put the whole day on free,

they don’t make a cent from it,” said the 58-year-old. “All staff worked the day for free for the cause.” Staff at Mamma Lina’s also hosted a raffle and a silent auction. All proceeds go directly to MS Australia. — Melissa Cunningham

DISMISSED committee members of an Ascot Vale preschool have denied wrongdoing after allegations of bullying and harassment between staff and parents at the centre. The parent-run Wingate Avenue Children’s Co-operative’s former chairwoman, Angela Kenneally, told the Weekly tensions arose when personal conflicts between manager Lorraine Stellini and other staff erupted late last year. Ms Kenneally said the friction prompted the committee to seek professional advice from the Victorian Employers Chamber of Commerce and Industry. She said the committee decided, after a meeting with the VECCI, to remove Ms Stellini’s authority to act. She claims that after she contacted the VECCI, Ms Stellini refused to cooperate with the committee.

“The committee proposed mediation to get the relationship back on track and this was refused by Ms Stellini,” Ms Kenneally said. She said allegations by Ms Stellini that staff were ‘‘bullied by committee members or acted without transparency are not true’’. “The committee has always acted with integrity, professionalism and in the interests of the children and staff at Wingate and in accordance with its governance and legal obligations.’’ Ms Kenneally denied claims the committee spent more than $10,000 investigating the resignation of two staff members. She said the committee spent $1300 investigating the dismissal of two staff and another $3000 on an independent human resources audit by VECCI. Ms Stellini has maintained her stance that the committee developed a personal “vendetta” against her after her father’s death last year.

Art beneath the froth A St Albans coffee-maker has represented Australia with distinction at the barista Olympics, writes Melissa Cunningham


or Lachlan Ward, making coffee isn’t just a job; it’s a perfectly poured work of scientific art. What began as a part-time job working as a barista three years ago has become a way of life. The St Albans resident, 24, lives, breathes and excels in his artform as head barista of the acclaimed Sensory Lab in Melbourne CBD, a cafe owned by Melbourne coffee institution St Ali Coffee Roasters. According to Ward, the secret formula to making the perfect coffee begins with a careful blend of freshly harvested seasonal coffee beans. “There is a science to making a perfect coffee,” he insists. “You need to understand what’s going on in your espresso machine, you need to be in tune with what you are doing. ‘‘A lot of the time it’s by eye, by careful observation. But there is also a quantitative science behind what we do, a chemical equation.” The budding barista had modest beginnings in coffee-making, starting out at a Humble Pie Cafe in New South Wales when he was 17. It was there he discovered his love of making coffee. But Ward has come a long way since then. Earlier this year, he finished third in the Victorian Brewers Cup competition and went on to win the national Brewers Cup. Last month, he represented Australia at the World Barista Championship – in the Brewers Cup category – held for the first time in Melbourne. Ward spent six months training for the gruelling championship in which he competed against 52 international baristas. Each competitor performed a meticulously

detailed routine in front of a live audience at a jam-packed indoor area at the Melbourne Showgrounds. The competitors were examined by seven judges and had just 15 minutes to make four espressos, four cappuccinos and four of their own signature drinks. Points were awarded for taste, technique, look, professionalism, accuracy and consistency. “It was an electric buzz of really inspiring people who were pushing the boundaries on how we make and think about coffee,” Ward says. “The beauty of it was the competition room was full of people who were just as inspired and interested in coffee as I am. ‘‘We were making coffee for the most receptive customers we will ever have, competing against the best baristas the world has to offer.” Ward finished eighth in the world. He now has his sights set on travelling next year to Kenya and Ethiopia, home of the original coffee trees. “I want to learn more about the farming aspect of the coffee process, learn more about the origin of where the product comes from and the process it goes through before it lands in the glass. “I’m really lucky in that I spend my days doing something I’m passionate about, and I’m surrounded by good people at the lab, people who inspire me and who seek to be the best at what they do.” Fellow St Ali barista Matt Perger also competed in the championship, finishing second in the world behind American newcomer Pete Licata. Perger was crowned NSW barista champion in 2010, Australian champion in 2011, and finished third at the world barista

championship in 2011. He’s worked for Melbourne coffee institutions Market Lane Coffee and Axil Coffee Roasters. St Ali sponsored professional coffee taster Ben Kaminsky from San Francisco to be Perger’s coach in the lead-up to the competition. Ward and Perger were joined by Canadian barista Josh Tarlo, 25, who travelled from Toronto to represent his country and finished third in the world. Tarlo has been a barista for six years for Pig and Iron Coffee Roasters and works at the Lit Espresso Bar in Toronto. He qualified for the championship after winning the Canadian Brewers Cup championship in April. Tarlo says the key to excelling in the coffee-making trade is falling in love with all aspects of the process. “You need to fall in love with the biology of the coffee, the customer service aspect, the experience of making,” he says. “You need to be passionate about what you do because coffee is a very subjective thing. What’s a good coffee to one person may not be a good coffee to somebody else. You need to know what the consumer wants, whether they want a rich strong coffee or something sweet and chocolatey. “I see myself as the last step in a very long process, so if I mess up I feel like I’m letting down all the hands that have touched those beans along the way.” Owner of St Ali Coffee Roasters, Sal Malatesta says Melbourne was selected to host the championship because it is leading the global ‘‘coffee renaissance’’. Malatesta says acclaimed baristas like Perger, Ward and Tarlo are pioneering a new brewing method which is sending

shockwaves through the global coffee scene. St Ali was selected to represent Australia in the championship for the fourth time this year and finished second behind America and ahead of Ireland, which came third. St Ali are veterans in the international coffee scene, winning the world championship last year and finishing in the top three in the world in 2011 and 2010. Malatesta says the vibe at this yea’s expo was ‘‘electric, emotional and patriotic’’. He predicts specialty coffee circles will continue to progress in a move away from commercial coffee roasters. St Ali recently purchased a coffee farm in Columbia, and Malatesta says he’s working in partnership with local farmers in South America to revolutionise coffee in Melbourne. He says he wants to go to the regions of origin for coffee beans and invest in

understanding farming and harvesting techniques to seek out the best-quality product. “We are seeing a trend in the deconstruction of brewing equipment and revisiting old brewing methods in Melbourne,” he says. “Commercial-grade roasters are already seeing that this specialty movement is not a fad; it’s a coffee movement. “There is a huge passion for specialty coffee in Melbourne, driven by eight to 10 individuals who are paving the way and are committed to linking the soil to the cup.” For Malatesta, coffee isn’t just business; it’s a way of life. “Coffee is a drug and with every drug there’s a ritual,” he says. “That ritual has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. ‘‘It isn’t a part-time business, it’s a lifestyle choice.”


From 1 July, Australia’s current support system for people living with disability is being progressively replaced with DisabilityCare Australia. This new scheme will help provide a better quality of life for Australians with a significant and permanent disability, and for their families and carers too.

What’s new about DisabilityCare Australia? DisabilityCare Australia is a new way of funding personalised support for people with disability. As well as looking at a person’s immediate needs, it will take a lifelong approach and enable people with disability to have choice and control over their supports. It will focus on early intervention, recognising that timely support can minimise the impact of a disability on individuals, families and carers. Assistance will be provided at the right time, rather than only once people reach crisis.

Who is eligible? DisabilityCare Australia will help people who have a significant and permanent disability and who need assistance with everyday activities. This includes people whose disabilities are attributed to intellectual, cognitive, neurological, sensory, or physical impairment, or a psychiatric condition.

A MAJOR shake-up of health services in Melbourne’s west and north is under way as Doutta Galla Community Health considers merging with two other services. The service is seeking to merge with Western Region Health Centre and North Yarra Community Health in one of the biggest changes in the organisation’s history. CEOs Lyn Morgain, Caz Healy and Vera Boston announced the proposal to the 620 staff last week. They argue a larger organisation would attract more funding and have a stronger voice fighting for fair and accessible health services. Doutta Galla Community Health CEO Caz Healy said maintaining high quality local health services would remain the highest priority. “If this proposal continues, we feel our core values of caring, collaboration, respect, professionalism, accountability and innovation will be carried through into a larger, stronger organisation well positioned to provide and

advocate for excellence in local, accessible health care,” she said. Western Region CEO Ms Morgain said there should be no disruption to services as the proposal was considered and implemented. “Western Region Health Centre has a long and proud tradition of looking after the people of the west, particularly those who are most disadvantaged,” she said. “If this proposal goes ahead, we will be in an even better position to develop our services and be an influential advocate for local, accessible and equitable health services.” While the merger would result in job losses at corporate and management levels, Ms Morgain said frontline service delivery jobs would not be affected. “This process will proceed at a pace which aims to remove uncertainty for staff as soon as possible,” she said. “But, equally, there won’t be any hasty decisions because we’re determined to get this right, for our people and our communities.” A decision is expected in three months.

Pooling resources: Caz Healy says merging health services would attract more funding.

I have noticed on my afternoon walks around Avondale Heights that some houses feature landscape paintings on their electricity boxes. Where did the tradition originate ?

Give the market a fair go

When is the council, or whoever has some say, going to find the Farmers Market a permanent venue? This is a great market and one I look forward to every month, yet they cannot obtain a permanent home. Traders in North Essendon who didn’t want them because they were a threat to their business need a reality check. If you provide good service, you won’t lose your customers. Visitors to the market wander through your shops and may spend money ( I did). And it’s only one Saturday a month! Find them a home so the market can grow.

Tales from the heart unite migrants BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM


A FLEMINGTON African migrant who penned a memoir on her experiences in her motherland celebrated refugee week in Moonee Valley last week. Eritrean migrant Shadia Mohamed Ily, 32, took part in a celebration of refugee week (June 16 to 22) in Flemington after fleeing from the Horn of Africa almost 20 years ago. Ms Mohamed Ily was one of 26 African women who wrote A is for Aunty and Z is for Zigni, a collection of the women’s stories and personal experiences from their homelands. At the event last week she shared her experiences of life in Africa and the challenges and advantages of living in Australia. “I am a mother now with three children and I want them to know about where I came from and their cultural heritage,” she said. “All the women who wrote the book live in and around the Flemington flats and for us it is a

therapeutic way of dealing with our experiences, sometimes painful, sometimes beautiful. And it is a way for us to hold on to our cultural legacy.”

Ms Mohamed Ily left Africa when she was 13 after being sponsored by her brother who was already living in Melbourne. “Life was hard in Africa, my

father was very sick and we didn’t have much money,” she says. “In Australia the children don’t stop; they have some type of sporting activity or something to amuse them every night of the week after school. In Africa we lived simply. Education was expensive and you were lucky if you got to go to school at all.” Since moving to Flemington, Ms Mohamed Ily has completed a degree in computer science at Victoria University and is now completing a diploma in community services so she can work with recently arrived migrants to help them settle in. She says Australia has been the land of opportunity for the thousands of African migrants who have settled in Moonee Valley. “In Australia you have freedom, choice and education,” she says. “I feel like there is no limit on what you can do. You can dream and there is nothing that can stop you.” To order a copy of A is for Aunty and Z is for Zigni, visit

Cannons fire up to keep streets safe BY TARA MURRAY and MELISSA CUNNINGHAM

Michael Copp

THE Calder Cannons Football Club had more reasons than most to be involved with the Lace Up campaign this month. Non-profit group Step Back Think organised the campaign to raise awareness of street violence. Over June 15 and 16, players of more than 400 Victorian football clubs wore orange shoelaces as part of the campaign. Calder Cannons region manager Ian Kyte said the club was involved because of a brush with street violence. “David Mitchell, who is a brother of former Cannons player [current Carlton player] Luke Mitchell and a close friend of our conditioning co-ordinator Steve Forcone, came and spoke to our TAC Cup squad.” In 2008, David, then 19, was king- hit outside a Moonee Ponds bar. His attacker was sentenced in 2009 to six years’ jail over the attack. “David was involved in an incident

that nearly cost him his life and placed him in rehab for nearly two years. He continues to work to regain as close to full health as he can,’’ Mr Kyte said. “Our conditioning co-ordinator was present when David was attacked and helped with first aid. It was a very emotional hour listening to Dave’s account of the assault, particularly given the close family and friendship ties to the Calder Cannons.” David Mitchell, an Essendon resident, said he was overwhelmed by the response to the campaign. “Education on this type of violence has to happen at such a young age to ensure it is in the mind of the team that when they do go out, to make sure they don’t resort to violence,” he said. “It’s about putting the safety of yourself and your friends first and always looking out for others.” His brother Luke said there was an important message in the campaign. ‘‘While having to re-learn basic tasks such as tying your own shoelaces might not sound like a lucky break, other victims of street violence never get that chance.”

Stepping up for a cause: Players Liam Berry, Peter Wright and Nathan Blair lace up for the campaign.

A PIZZA festival showcasing the best 12 pizzerias in Melbourne and Sydney was held at Ascot Vale’s Scoozi last week. More than 60 people flocked to the family-owned restaurant last Tuesday night as part of SBS food journalist Matteo Rubbettino’s pizza festival. Owner Amelia Bruno said the festival involved a circuit of pizza parties at invited pizzerias, where the public could learn more about elite pizza-making techniques and dine on the end product. The eatery has made a name in the Melbourne food industry since becoming one of very few Australian outlets to acquire certification from the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana in Naples. Only after completing rigorous theoretical and practical assessments with the association can pizza-makers across the world be accredited as a ‘true Neapolitan

pizza-maker’. Only three such pizza-makers exist in Australia. Ms Bruno said the secret to a good pizza was importing quality produce from Italy. She said there were special pizza and wine deals at the festival event, and the most popular pizza on the night was the traditional margherita. To continue festivities, one of the restaurant’s chefs, Andy Percival, will host a woodfire oven-building class to teach people how to build their own oven. The cost of the class is $20, with all proceeds going directly to the Royal Children’s Hospital. The workshop will be on July 1 at Scoozi, 136 Union Road, Ascot Vale, from 6pm-8pm. Scoozi will also be part of a cookoff with all other pizzerias in the festival, at the Rose Street Artists Market in Fitzroy on July 30 from noon-4pm.

Moonee Ponds 47 Puckle St ASCOT VALE



may be stating the obvious here, but the cold has officially kicked in and as we leave our homes clad in scarves and beanies, it heralds our instinct to seek out comforting food and drink to warm us. Hot chocolate, slowcooked meats, pies, pastries; it’s all part of a Melbourne winter, and Fraus cafe in Victoria Street on the border of West Melbourne evokes thoughts of comfort as soon as you enter the large room. Bare brick walls and dark wooden tables set the scene and the sweet smell of pastries and chocolate hint at what’s to come. Fraus puts itself out there as a creperie and hot chocolate cafe, but there is a lot more on offer such as sandwiches, pies, salads and pastries. While the service is welcoming, it could use more experience on the floor or just ensure the staff know answers to questions regarding dishes. Thankfully, this doesn’t take

away from the friendliness of the place. Crepes, both sweet and savoury, feature heavily on the menu, with the galette – a gluten-free buckwheat crepe – highlighted in main courses. Galettes have various fillings, such as chicken or grilled vegetables ($16), although we opted for smoked salmon ($16.50) served with a salad of green leaves, carrots, cucumber and sprouts and finished with a dollop of herbed creme fraiche. The cold day meant a meat pie was in order and the Aussie version ($6) we tried was a feast of chunky beef, seasoned thoughtfully, while the pastry held its own against the weight of the meat. A housemade tomato chutney served as a feisty foil to the earthy mix. Sweet crepes include poached apple or a caramel and banana crepe ($11) or a simple lemon and vanilla sugar ($6), and then there’s the hot chocolate which is its own dessert. A bowl of thick, glossy chocolate liquid, it’s wickedly delicious and like everything else at Fraus, comforting for cold days ... and warm weather, too.

When rot becomes noble ... the result is incredibly sweet and just as rich, writes Ben Thomas


alking through a vineyard recently, well after this year’s grapes had been picked and fermented, I noticed a few rows of vines with bunches of shrivelled grapes still clinging to the vines. I picked a couple of berries and gave them a squeeze. The juice from these brown-grey grapes was rich and incredibly sweet – this was for the winery’s dessert wine. The grapes were infected with botrytis, or noble rot, a fungus that draws moisture out of the grapes and leaves the remaining juice rich and concentrated and with distinct marmalade and honeysuckle notes. The best botrytised sweet wines show the characters of the grape they were made from, such as semillon or riesling, plus the added dimension that botrytis brings to the bottle. Botrytis on grapes isn’t always a good thing. In fact, it’s a real danger in the vineyard while the grapes are growing. Just as it can affect the grapes to produce noble rot, it can get hold of grapes as they’re growing, when it’s known as grey rot. Grey rot can decimate

reds and wipe out whites in a short time. It affects strawberries, too, making them inedible. Botrytis needs humidity to grow, and during the grape-growing season most winemakers spray their vines to ward off the disease after heavy rains. But when the conditions are right and noble rot sets in, the resulting wines are simply a joy to drink. You don’t need to wait until the dessert course to serve them either: match them with pate or foie gras at the beginning of a meal, or a salty cheese. Some sweet wines can feel like a dessert in themselves, often weighing in with more

than 200 grams of residual sugar per litre – the average white wine has about four grams per litre. Not all dessert wines are affected by noble rot. There’s a style known as cane-cut, where the canes that sprout the bunches are severed from the vine, cutting off the flow of nutrients and causing the grapes to shrivel and intensify. There’s also moscato. Moscato from Italy’s Asti region, plus the local renditions, works well with delicate, light desserts. It’s also a nice alternative to tea and coffee with a slice of mid-afternoon cake.

Love a bargain? HHHH Innocent Bystander moscato 2013 (Swan Hill) $12.50 (375ml); 5.5 per cent This is the 10th vintage of the wine that launched a thousand moscato ships. Since first released in 2004, it has been bottled, kegged, canned and, most recently, frozen and poured as a slushie. Its vibrant pink comes from the skins of black muscat grapes. This year’s release has a star anise character to the rosewater, watermelon, cherry and strawberry flavours. A zesty tang adds freshness. Bubbles put a smile on your face. Easy drinking, with a serious side. Food Match Soft goat’s cheese

er husband Paul is in the building industry so, having acquired almost 800 square metres on Aberfeldie Hill, Danielle Spence could ask for whatever she wanted in a family home of her own – and hang the expense. What did she choose? “Three-metre ceilings. Oversized windows. Parquetry floors,” she reminisces. Added to that list was a long lap pool and a spa. And quality finishes such as plantation shutters, traditional blinds in the formal areas and marble in the bathrooms. Later, she asks: “Did you see the dressing room?” That would be the large, well-fitted hideaway off the main bedroom wherein a queen might prepare for her coronation. “I love shoes,” she confesses. “Those are custom-made shelves, and all the shoes fit neatly. There are a lot of storage spaces, because what we have found when building other people’s houses is that they never have enough storage. All our bedrooms have walk-in wardrobes. It’s easy to keep our house tidy because there is a place for everything.” That would account for the striking absence of clutter, despite this being home to three children. Built in 2005, the Spence family pile is a sleek, contemporary affair in rendered brick and milky glass, with dual garages, one fitted as a workshop. Yet it rises above its small forest of Japanese maples with a Georgian symmetry that endears it to its street of Edwardians and Victorians. Light and space are the hallmarks of the interior, which opens with a wide, airy hall and offers its rooms in a sensible progression from private and formal to sunny and casual. Walls are a delicate off-white, allowing the Sydney bluegum parquetry to flaunt its rich auburn hue. In addition, every communal room is radiantly lit from enormous windows that reach almost to the floor. Commanding an enormous L-shaped space facing north into a sandstone courtyard are the living and dining rooms, their windows smart in swagged beige brocade. The living room has a gas log-fireplace nestled in a white stackstone pillar, a feature echoed in the family room at the house’s rear. So pristine is the kitchen it looks almost unused, though Danielle swears the Smeg gas cooktop and 900mm oven have done heavy duty. White, vinyl-wrapped cabinetry rises almost to the ceiling, the CaesarStone island bench is replete with neat drawers, and a walk-in pantry keeps mess out of sight. The adjoining laundry could double as a butler’s kitchen. From an intermediary space between the family and meals areas, timber bifold doors lead to a covered deck and thence to the garden, where the fully tiled lap pool casts a slinky blue streak along the western front. Completing the ground floor are a fitted study off the entry and the main bedroom, whose dressing room is matched in proportions by the marble en suite where bath and shower are separated by the frosty expanse of porcelain floor. The Spence kids have had the run of the top storey, where three double bedrooms – all with walk-in wardrobes and tall casements – share a retreat four metres long and brimming with nooks, benches and cupboards for all purposes. Off to one side is the main bathroom, dazzling in Calacatta marble with a bath and shower. The retreat’s glass doors open westward to a covered balcony, with views of jumbled rooftops, a lavish muddle of leafiness, and sky. “It’s a beautiful view, and it will always be there,” Danielle says. “There’s a heritage overlay on the houses in the next street. They can never build up.” \ ALISON BARCLAY

Attention to detail is immediately apparent in this smart year-old townhouse. Natural timber encloses double-glazed doors and windows throughout the property, where bathrooms outnumber bedrooms. Set over three floors, the house has two entrances – stairs lead to the main entry on the middle floor with access to the ground floor from the double garage and driveway. The lower level has a bathroom and rumpus that would make an impressive home theatre or large office/ studio space. Upstairs, a bathroom and bedroom run either side of the entrance. The kitchen’s chocolate-and-cream colour scheme, Blanco appliances and CaesarStone benches will appeal to keen cooks, and a spacious, decked courtyard is linked to the open-plan living, meals and kitchen area via bifold doors. On the top floor, two bedrooms have en suites and built-in wardrobes. The house is on the bus route to Essendon train station and a short stroll away from the Maribyrnong River walking and cycling track. \ SARAH MOORE

Less than a minute from Napier Street shops and cafés and opposite a school, this two-bedroom brick unit in a block of three would suit singles, young families or downsizers. With its own street frontage, private driveway and front yard, it presents as an independent property. The unit aspect comes through in its low-key, low-maintenance style. There are two bedrooms with built-in wardrobes that share a central bathroom. The shared living spaces are open and easy. Straight off the entry is a comfortable lounge that segues to an open-plan meals and dining space. Décor is neutral, allowing new owners to seal it with their own style stamp, though this simplicity doesn’t negate the inclusion of a host of comfortable conveniences: the house has ducted gas heating, a split-system air-conditioner in the kitchen and meals area, ducted vacuum, a private courtyard and a single lock-up garage with remote-controlled door. The driveway provides room for an additional car and the unit is close to transport, parks and the freeway. \ SARINA LEwIS






ESSEndOn \ 11 Cliff STReeT A tall cyprus in the front yard has strategically shortened branches that can be used as rungs for easy climbing. It’s the first suggestion of a happy family home. This magnificent solid-brick house, c1923, has beautifully preserved period features with enviable proportions, as well as an extension that caters for modern family living and growing children. Our vendors have been in residence for 32 years, and are only its second owners. Formal front rooms are versatile spaces that could be configured to suit. They are all equally stunning with lofty strapped ceilings, ceiling roses, picture rails, original light fittings and polished floorboards. The front main bedroom has retained its period character as well as having the convenience of built-in wardrobes. Timber doors add warmth to the cream interiors. A bathroom sits between the main bedroom and the second bedroom. A small study has built-in cupboards. A meals and kitchen area has opened up the rear of the house where two walls of multipaned windows overlook the backyard. A laundry includes another shower and toilet. The upstairs extension makes good use of the roof cavity, housing a rumpus and two bedrooms. A large terrace has an external staircase for outdoor entertaining. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

Ascot Vale was a well-kept local secret until recently. Lately that’s changing, as developers and home buyers wise up to its charms. This two-bedroom Edwardian is positioned to reap the benefits. Elevation gives the pocket an unrestricted feel and Ascot Vale station, Union Street shops and trams are within minutes. The semi-detached, block-fronted façade has a wraparound entrance verandah. Addressing the verandah, the first bedroom has olive-green carpet, picture rails, and an open fireplace. Beyond the carpeted second bedroom, there’s a door to a wide lounge with Baltic pine floors and a fireplace under a deco mantel. The other side of this fireplace warms the roomy kitchen and dining area. Things are consistently simple out the back, where a small verandah opens to lawn and a rear right of way. Paintwork is fresh and most period detail intact, but if you were eager to enrich, the kitchen and bathroom would respond well to makeovers. Extension is a possibility (STCA) and any added value would be clever investment. \ KAY KEIGHERY





MOOnEE POndS \ 99 aTHol STReeT There are a few things that Melbourne does well: trams, coffee, nifty cafés and gorgeous little weatherboard cottages such as this one. Set on a street of similar-styled properties, this house has all the charm you would expect from a Victorian, with modern updates where it counts, including kitchen, bathroom, polished floorboards, air-conditioning and heating. The front gate opens to a garden and porch typical of the period. A hallway runs the length of the property, finishing in the renovated kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and concertina windows on two sides. Both downstairs bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and the spacious upstairs main bedroom has a spectacular half-circle window with rooftop views, walk-in wardrobe and study. The study could be used as a nursery, or as it sits above the downstairs bathroom and thus existing plumbing, could be relatively easily converted to a bathroom. Outside should bring out the inner barbecue fiend in us all, with a built-in barbecue, large covered deck with enough room for a dining setting as well as lounge chairs, and access to the kitchen through those fold-back windows. The house is close to Moonee Ponds West Primary School, Maribynong Park, public transport, Union Road’s shops and is just around the corner from the world’s most gorgeous tutu shop. \ JAN FISHER

Ten people made this four-bedroom house their base last year. The multiple living spaces made life easy to accommodate the vendors’ grown-up children and their families while they built their own homes. With a generous kitchen-meals and family zone, separate dining room, lounge and an undercover outdoor area at the rear, there is ample room for multiple generations to find somewhere to retreat. Now their brood has flown the coup once more, the vendors have decided to downsize. On the fringe of the coveted Pavilions Estate, a horseshoe driveway leads past a double garage to the porch of the teal accented exterior. The main bedroom has large walk-in wardrobes, an en suite with twin vanity, polished floorboards and a rich terracotta feature wall. A laundry and powder room complete the lower level. Carpeted stairs lead up to a rumpus/study area, central bathroom with twin vanities, a separate toilet and three bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes. The property has ducted heating and cooling, ducted vacuum and a backyard shed. \ SARAH MOORE

A Breakthrough for Foot and Leg Pain and Injuries

Most people will suffer some form of foot or leg complaint in their lives. The most common being: heel spurs, heel pain (plantar fascii�s), knee & shin pain and so� �ssue injuries. There are a variety of treatments that can assist with these issues but one that stands out is ‘Prolotherapy’ - natural regenera�ve injec�on therapy. It‘s one of the most promising medically researched treatments available for so� �ssue repair and pain relief. The injectable glucose and anesthe�c solu�ons assist the body’s natural healing mechanisms. As a result there is increased joint, ligament, and tendon stability, chronic pain is relieved and mobility increased. Prolotherapy is a quick, easy, safe, natural and minimally invasive treatment that is fast ac�ng, versa�le and cost effec�ve. Preferable to cor�sone, an�-inammatory medica�ons and shockwave therapy, it doesn’t have their nega�ve side effects, can be effec�ve for both new and old injuries and is an alterna�ve to surgery in many cases. Foot + Leg Pain Clinics, one of Australia’s leading Podiatry prac�ces focused on assis�ng pain, injuries and musculoskeletal issues have exper�se in Prolotherapy. The clinics have assisted athletes return to professional sport, provided pain relief for people who’ve suffered for years, improved healing and increased mobility in those who’ve previously been told nothing can be done for them. Thanks to their exper�se and treatments they have assisted many hundreds of people achieve long-term, posi�ve outcomes. Foot + Leg Pain Clinics have clinics across Melbourne including Moonee Ponds and Coburg. Men�on this ar�cle to get $50 off ini�al consulta�ons. Call 1300 328 300

Soya what Think you know soya? Think again, writes Carole Levy


and margarines. This is because soya is a cheap protein source and lets companies claim higher protein content on labels. Each year 200 million tonnes of the stuff feeds animals, so it’s likely whatever meat you eat includes soya. Listed on labels as lecithin, it’s also in cakes, biscuits and chocolate bars. But it’s not just our bodies that are potentially being adversely affected. Our planet is taking a severe battering through intensive crop planting, particularly in South America. It’s estimated that 10,000 hectares of forest are being lost each year – the equivalent of 20 football fields an hour. By 2020, forest and savannah areas the size of Great Britain will have vanished, with crops triggering soil erosion, siltation of waterways and widespread use of toxic chemicals in some of the world’s most delicate habitats. Soya is now traded as an international commodity, just like gold or oil. It’s all about money, and anyone opposing soya’s onward march is sadly likely to have their voice stifled by powerful corporations.

ow would you feel about giving your baby five birth control pills each day? I pose this confronting question for a reason: it surely compels us to find out how this could ever happen. Research has shown that infants who are exclusively fed soya formula ingest the oestrogen equivalent of five birth control pills a day. This is because plant-oestrogens or isoflavones that mimic the female hormone are found in large concentration in the soya bean. In fact, so powerful are these critters that the more soya a man eats, the more likely he is to have difficulty in fertilising an egg, says Belfast reproduction medicine specialist Dr Lorraine Anderson. Professor Neil McClure, a leading British fertility expert, advises minimising soya in a man’s diet should he and his partner have trouble conceiving. But this is not easy. It’s estimated that more than 70 per cent of supermarket and fast-food chain products contain soya – from chicken nuggets and breakfast cereals to mayonnaise

Demons put foot down then hit the brakes By Teo Pellizzeri Tullamarine held off a Taylors Lakes comeback to win by 12 points and retain top spot in Essendon District Football League division one on Saturday. The Demons kicked five goals to one in the opening quarter and extended the margin to an even 30 points at half time. But booting just two goals after the long break left the door ajar for Taylors Lakes, the Lions falling short 8.5 (53) to 10.5 (65). Tullamarine (8-1-1) is half a game clear of Northern Saints (8-2) and a game ahead of third-placed Glenroy (7-1-2), while Taylors Lakes fell to fourth with the defeat (7-3). Dale Foote and Jonathan Hardman were Tullamarine’s best players, while Adrian Longo kicked four goals for Taylors Lakes. At Hadfield, the home team dared to challenge Northern Saints in the first half but couldn’t match the Saints’ scoring power after the long break. Fidaa Ahmed was the Saints’ best in the 17.17 (119) to 10.12 (72) result, while Josh Polizzi kicked four goals for Hadfield. Hadfield’s loss leaves a gulf between the finals teams and the chasing pack, with Taylors Lakes now four wins ahead of fifth-placed West Coburg and sixth-placed Hadfield (both 3-7).

was no match for the Sharks as a six-goal-to-one first quarter set up a comfortable margin for the day. A low-scoring slog followed in the middle two quarters before six Hillside goals to one in the last term blew out the final score to 15.8 (98) to 4.8 (32). Mark Micallef kicked three goals for Hillside, while Drew Mitchell was best afield. Luke McCormack and Hayden Phillips were East Keilor’s best. Coburg Districts moved back into the top four mix as its six-goal-totwo second quarter set it on course for a 14.10 (94) to 9.14 (68) win against Jacana.

Solomon rules in Park return By Teo Pellizzeri Jack Solomon’s return to Maribyrnong Park was an immediate success as the 19-year-old spearheaded a 24-point win against Strathmore on Saturday. Solomon returned from the VAFA to the Essendon District Football League with five goals in the Lions’ 16.11 (107) to 12.11 (83) win. The result sets up a four-way race for two finals spots in premier division with teams third to sixth all sporting six-win, four-loss records. Avondale Heights (126 per-cent) leads the pack after a comeback win against Keilor, followed by Airport West (115), Maribyrnong Park (97.48) and Strathmore (97.44). There’s a three-game gap between top pair Aberfeldie and Greenvale (9-1) above the finals-chasing

quartet and a three-game gap down to Keilor and Essendon Doutta Stars (both 3-7). Solomon’s goals were vital in the momentum swings of the first three quarters, with the Lions escaping to a 10-point lead at the last change. When Daniel Sinnott goaled for Strathmore early in the last quarter it looked like a game that might be decided by the odd goal. But Maribyrnong Park broke away, with ruckman James Philpot decisive in giving an advantage to on-ballers Trent and Cameron Lee. Aaron Winter and Matt Little kicked four each for Strathmore. Avondale Heights 23.11 (149) d Keilor 20.6 (126) Keilor started fast with eight straight goals to lead by 27 points at the first change only for Avondale Heights to respond with back-to-

back eight-goal quarters. The Blues scored just one behind in the second term as the Heights stormed to a 24-point lead at the long break. Patrick Rose booted seven goals and Nick Dimartino five, while three-goal Chris Johnson was best afield. Keilor’s Jarrod Garth kicked six. Essendon Doutta Stars 8.10 (58) lt Aberfeldie 9.17 (71) Aberfeldie built an early lead to hold the Stars at arm’s length at each change in its inaccurate victory. The Two Blues remain top on percentage, but Greenvale has closed the gap, with Aberfeldie top on 165.72 from the Jets on 163.80. Josh Toy and Zach O’Brien were Aberfeldie’s best, while Josh Cubillo kicked two goals. Phil Lobb was Doutta’s only multiple goalkicker, while Michael

inbrief VAFA PEGS roared back into Premier C finals contention on Saturday, while St Bernards’ finals hopes suffered a major blow in Premier. PEGS remains fifth on the table but got a much-needed percentage boost by thrashing Peninsula 21.12 (138) to 5.7 (37). The win gives PEGS a five-andfive record with 122 per cent, one win behind third-placed Old Ivanhoe (6-4, 154) and fourth-placed Old Camberwell (6-4, 133). David Forrest led the rout with 10 goals, while Chris Caminiti, Daniel Flaherty and Robert Baddeley were other better players. PEGS will travel to play runaway ladder leader Marcellin (10-0) this weekend. In Premier, St Bernards was left to rue inaccurate kicking in losing 8.20 (68) to 11.13 (79) against Beaumaris. The loss leaves threeand-seven St Bernards three wins adrift of fourth place (De La Salle, 6-4) and only out of the relegation zone on percentage above Uni Blues. Nicholas Burgin was the Snowdogs’ best on Saturday with three goals, while other better players were Tom Sullivan, Nick Cooke and Tom Caven. St Bernards hosts Collegians (sixth, 5-5) at the Snake Pit on Saturday.

Monteith and Jono Morris were best. Greenvale 21.15 (141) d Oak Park 12.9 (81) Consecutive seven-goal quarters put Greenvale out of Oak Park’s reach on a day when the Jets enjoyed seven multiple goal-kickers. Greenvale led by 12 points at quarter time before seven goals to four in the second term and seven to one in the third put the Jets in a winning position. Adam McPhee booted five majors for Greenvale and Jack Kennedy four for Oak Park. Airport West 18.12 (120) d Pascoe Vale 11.9 (75) The Eagles protected their topfour position by shaking Pascoe Vale with five goals to one in the third term. Marcus Kenny kicked six goals for Airport West. EDFL Division 1 and 2 wrap, P77

SOCCER Avondale Heights’ promotion challenge was stalled for a week by the referee after Doyle St Reserve was determined too soft for play on Saturday. The Heights will need to reschedule the match against Whittlesea Ranges. In state 4 west, FC Strathmore netted an important point to stay above the relegation zone with a 1-1 draw against Williamstown. Strathmore’s nine points keeps it above relegation-zone teams Maribyrnong Greens (seven) and Bell Park (five). Essendon Royals lost 2-1 against Corio. In state 5 west, Melbourne Tornado lost 4-3 to Altona North, with Daniel Tonc scoring two goals and Baze Boskovski one.



On the board: Jordan Madden celebrates a major, but goals were few and far between for East Keilor on Saturday. See page 77 for a wrap of EDFL division two.

Great grab: East Keilor’s Hayden Phillips out-reaches Hillside’s Drew Mitchell to take a finger-tip grab.

Victoria led at every change to comfortably win the women’s national championship on Saturday with a 37-point win against WA in Cairns. WA failed to kick a goal until the final quarter as Victoria won 7.8 (50) to 1.7 (13). NSW’s Courtney Gum won the Debbie Lee medal as the tournament’s best and fairest, while Moonee Valley resident Emma Kearney was named in the All-Australian team. Other Victorians in the All-Australian side are Megan Hutchins, Karen Paxman, Daisy Pearce, Stephanie Chiocci, Katie Brennan, Aasta O’Connor, Ellie Blackburn, Louise Wotton and Jasmine Garner.


Cannons succumb to the power of Power By Teo PellizzerI Calder was found wanting for skills and physicality as a 37-point loss to Gippsland Power dumped the Cannons out of the TAC Cup top eight on Saturday. The Cannons pushed Gippsland at times but lacked quality in execution to stay any closer than an 11.11 (77) to 16.18 (114) loss at Highgate Reserve. The four-and-six Cannons now sit ninth on the table, just behind the Western Jets, Sandringham Dragons and Northern Knights (all 4-1-5). Stopping league-leading goalscorer Josh Scott proved too tough a task for Calder’s backline as the Lakes Entrance forward led the Power to

victory with seven goals. Calder had a forward ace of its own in Moonee Valley’s Peter Wright, who booted three goals but was still limited in his second game back from a long-term back injury. Gippsland dominated long spells of the first quarter but failed to capitalise, with Jason Cooke’s late goal keeping Calder within two points at quarter-time. Wright looked as if he might change the game in the second quarter, the 202cm forward kicking successive set-shot goals after imposing grabs on the lead. But Calder’s inability to pressure Gippsland at defensive stoppages proved costly, with the Power

capitalising on half-chances to tumble through a string of goals from opportunistic snaps and hurried kicks. A potential team-lifting moment came late in the half when Aaron Christensen snapped a goal in the same passage that saw teammate Jarryd Bonello cleaned up after disposing of the ball. But it was Gippsland that responded better to some push and shove, with Scott goaling to establish a 15-point Power lead at half-time. Scott, who played head-to-head on a number of Calder defenders including Daniel Thompson and Nathan Blair, was then the dominant force of the second half. His early goal had the Power up

by 23 in the third term before Wright and Josh Cauchi kicked quick backto-back goals. Wright missed a set shot which would have drawn Calder within four points, enough of a warning to spark Scott’s next response. Diving to take the mark of the day, Scott goaled and then kicked another soon after before a hopeful 70m kick from Alex Carr bounced through an unguarded goalsquare to take Gippsland’s lead to 29. Calder got no closer in the final term as Gippsland kicked five goals to four. The Cannons play Oakleigh Chargers (10th, 3-1-6) at Highgate Reserve from 2.30pm on Sunday. Vic Metro under-16s were named

last week, with Calder Cannons dominating coach Mark Fisher’s final squad of 25. Nick O’Kearney (Keilor), Tom Wallis (Essendon Doutta Stars), Matthew Stillman (Greenvale), Joel Flanigan (Rupertswood), Joseph Tobin (Strathmore), Kane Murfett (Pascoe Vale) and Alec Binns (Aberfeldie) were the Cannons’ contingent. Essendon District Football League also has Western Jets/Keilor player Tylar Vujanic in the squad. The under-16 national championships will be played at Skoda Stadium and Blacktown International Sports Park in Sydney between July 6 and July 13.

Calder slips from the eight, but coach sticks to his mantra By Teo Pellizzeri Calder Cannons coach Andrew Jago is staying on message about player development even though his team fell out of the TAC Cup top eight at the weekend. The Cannons sit ninth on the table but still within one win of fifth and sporting a percentage considerably better than some teams above them. But consecutive losses by armslength margins to the Bendigo Pioneers and Gippsland Power have left Calder in a situation where it will have to bank wins sooner rather than later to see finals action. The Cannons now face a five-game stretch against teams around them on the ladder before finishing the homeand-away campaign against top pair Geelong Falcons and Eastern Ranges. Jago stressed the importance of protecting the ball-carrier in his quarter-time address on Saturday, telling his players to run into open space because a teammate would be there to shepherd and clear a path. But the Cannons were still apprehensive when the opportunities presented, often resulting in an overuse of handball. “When we had the ball in our hands we made poor choices,” Jago said. “I think we underestimated Gippsland . . . they’re good at chopping out for each other and linking up.” Peter Wright’s three goals earned him a first mention among the ‘best’ in just his second TAC Cup game. “Wright becomes a focal point; (Josh) Cauchi at his feet provided a bit and Aaron Christensen probably had his best game for the year across half forward,” Jago said. “Wright’s got to take care of his body and get up to 100 per cent game

time. That was his first run in the ruck and we gave him two and a half to three minutes there to give him a taste. “You can just imagine that size, mobility and kicking ability being used around the ground .  .  . it’s exciting, but he has work to do.” Calder’s depth has been a strength in recent seasons but testing the depth this season is proving tougher. Season stand-outs James Ferry (knee, out for the year), Matt Merlo (foot, being assessed) and Mitchell Jensen (shoulder, minimum two weeks) were all missing at the weekend. “We’re in the same situation as other clubs,” Jago said. “We had seven or eight who would be automatic inclusions if available but that was the same for Gippsland.” Jago wouldn’t be drawn on whether or not he was feeling pressure to get the team into the finals. “I still genuinely believe it’s about development,” he said. “I think the last two weeks have been the only two where I couldn’t say we’ve improved. “It’s about getting back to improving again, because we certainly didn’t show any improvement against Bendigo last week and today we didn’t. “Last week we didn’t get our hands on the football and today we got the football but made poor decisions. “Now it’s a matter of starting the trend upward again, and where it gets us is where it gets us.” Calder’s only player retained in the Vic Metro under-18 squad this season is bottom-ager Jake Lever. The Romsey defender cannot be drafted this season but did enough to impress coach Martin Allison to be retained for the team’s final two games, against South Australia in Geelong on Friday and Vic Country at Etihad Stadium on Wednesday, July 3.

Defensive duty: Calder’s Daniel Thompson and Nathan Blair, pictured in an earlier game this season, had their work cut out against Gippsland’s Josh Scott on Saturday.
