GRAND FINAL DAY

here are times, we all know, when words are woefully inadequate and it seems even more diabolically so to those of us who fling them about for a living. When one of my oldest mates Dave was dying, the words I couldn’t say to him or his wife — both also journos — morphed into penguininspired objects, as they were always both quite partial to the creatures. There were penguin bookmarks, penguin books, penguin ornaments, penguin pencil sharpeners, a penguin pendant, penguin chocolates all posted interstate wordlessly. When the shops ran out of penguins – as being nowhere near the sea they very soon did – I began rewriting the great works of literature to include penguins. There was the long lost Penguin Prologue to the Canterbury Tales. I rediscovered Esperance — the nanny penguin cut from the balcony scene in Romeo and Juliet by censors after the Great Penguin Pogroms of the 14th century. When Dave died, I flew across for the funeral with a five-kilogram glass penguin swathed in half a kilometre of bubble-wrap. The sheer absurdity of it gave me strength, especially when airport security stopped the X-ray conveyor and demanded to know what was in the suspicious parcel. “A very heavy glass penguin,” I replied. The guard looked me with an expression that said, ‘Sure, it’s a heavy glass penguin’. He then insisted, quite nastily, that I unwrap it — presumably just in case it went off. And as I held it out for inspection it was clear to everyone that this was a penguin of mass destruction. Someone behind me snickered. I didn’t cry, but I didn’t laugh either because I didn’t want the penguin to miss the plane.

INBRIEF Disqualified driver loses car again A 51-year-old Taylors Hill man has had his $120,000 Chevrolet Camaro coupe impounded after being intercepted by police in Tullamarine last week. The car was stopped for a random check, as part of Operation Bia, at 12.10pm on Tuesday in Keilor Park Drive. Inquiries revealed that he is a recidivist disqualified driver. It is the third time this year the man has been intercepted by police for disqualified driving, and the third time he has had a vehicle impounded. He will appear in court for driving while disqualified.

Host brekkie, save lives Moonee Valley residents, who have collectively raised $44,726 by hosting Pink Ribbon breakfasts in the past five years, are being urged to host another breakfast to help raise $2.25 million nationally. National Breast Cancer Foundation chief executive Carole Renouf says every individual or group in Moonee Valley that hosts a Pink Ribbon breakfast is helping to bring an end to deaths caused by this disease.For more information about hosting a breakfast or donating, go to www.pinkribbonbreakfast.org.au

Residents who care about rivers and streams in Moonee Valley are being urged to get involved in a new not-for-profit initiative designed to put the spotlight on local waterways.

THE Communications Union and the delivery driver at the centre of an unfair dismissal claim have denied allegations by delivery contractor Dee Vee that it was his conduct on the worksite that led to his dismissal. Delivery driver Bill Damen, now reinstated as a sub-contractor for Dee Vee, was dismissed in August from his job as a parcel delivery driver at the Essendon Fields delivery centre. As reported by the Moonee Valley Weekly on September 4, the Communications Union alleged Mr Damen was sacked because he sought to secure better conditions and superannuation payments from the company. The union alleges Dee Vee sought to have its six sub-contractors

Instead, it will prepare a report in a bid to create a ‘healthier environment’ in the municipality. Rosehill ward’s Cr Ange Kenos last week moved to ban smoking in some outdoor areas. These would include within 10 metres of children’s playground equipment, barbecues and picnic tables; within five metres of activities at sporting fields; in entrances to municipal buildings and at taxi ranks and public transport stops. Before the issue could be debated an amendment was moved by fellow Rosehill ward

councillor Shirley Cornish. The wording was duly changed, and council officers will be asked to prepare a report on a proposal to ban smoking in selected outdoor areas. The report will take account of the council’s existing local laws and to identify opportunities to strengthen the laws. The amended motion was passed. Cr Cornish said her option would provide the council will more information to guide the introduction of any specific bans. ‘‘[The motion put forward by Cr Kenos] was a great idea, but I think it needed tidying up,’’ she said. ‘‘Everyone has got the right to enjoy the open spaces in the municipality so getting more information on what we can do regarding

smoking is important.’’ Cr Cornish said the issue was not a new one, and Frankston Council had banned smoking on main streets in November 2010. In March the same year, then Moonee Valley Greens councillor Rose Iser introduced a motion asking for a report to explore the possibility of reducing passive smoking in the city. Her motion was defeated 5-4, and one of the objectors was Cr Cornish. Moonee Valley already has a general purposes local law clause which deals with smoking near playgrounds. Clause 8.2 of the law states: “In a playground on a council reserve or other council-managed land, a person must not smoke within 10 metres of the playground edge.”

Mr Damen said he was being paid only about $18 or $19 an hour and could not afford to accumulate his own superannuation. Dee Vee spokesman Jerry Katz, said Mr Damen was sacked due to safety conduct breaches at the work site. Mr Katz said Mr Damen had deliberately reversed his car into Dee Vee owner Debra Baguley. Communication Union’s Chris Spindler said Dee Vee was clutching at straws. ‘‘That is completely untrue. The Federal Court has ordered that Mr Damen be reinstated; he is back at work. That has no bearing on the case whatsoever.’’

Wheels in motion on candidate polling BY EUGENE BENSON MOONEE Valley’s growing population of bike riders could play a decisive role in this year’s council elections, according to lobby group Bicycle Network Victoria. Network spokesman Harry Barber said candidates who support closing a traffic lane on Mount Alexander Road to build a designated bike path and upgrading the Epsom Road and Racecourse Road link would be looked upon favourably by cyclists. He said cyclists now formed a formidable voting block in Melbourne’s inner suburbs, including Moonee Valley. To marshal support for pro-bike candidates, BNV has launched Votebike — an online system that allows Moonee Valley candidates to present their credentials directly to riders. Votebike enables candidates to fill in a web form that places their information on display to riders registered with Votebike. Riders can then review the candidate’s statements and contact candidates if they wish. “Riders are eager to assess potential council-

lors for their attitude and policy solutions for Victoria’s rapidly accelerating population of bike riders,’’ Mr Barber said. “We have no party affiliation but we do want our members to know who is going vote for bike riding measures if they become a councillor. ‘‘The next four years will determine whether local government can push hard on bike riding in order to tackle congestion, meet their health policies and do something practical about climate change.’’ BNV also cites providing cycling lanes between parked cars and the traffic lane along Ormond and Maribyrnong Road a priority for Moonee Valley, including for the Ride2School program to be continued and street bike parking increased. Essendon cyclist Tim Goldby said he was a supporter of the council proposal to introduce Copenhagen-style bike lanes to Mount Alexander Road. ‘‘For me, it really could come down to choosing the candidate that is most committed to improving cycling infrastructure, that absolutely an impact on my vote.’’

Changing gears: Essendon cyclist Tim Goldby wants candidates in the next month’s local government election to support an increase in cycling infrastructure spending. Picture: Scott McNaughton

OPINION

Moonee Valley Weekly asked passers-by on Union Road, Ascot Vale about the local issues that will influence their vote in October’s Moonee Valley Council election.

Jamie Arceri, Ascot Vale Traffic management for me. I don’t live far from the showground and people around there don’t know where they can park. Also, there are more and more events there, they need to do something to disperse the traffic.

Natalie Ramsay, Ascot Vale Footpaths, I find it really hard to get up and down the side streets with a pram because of the state they are in.

Brigitte Lamont, Ascot Vale Planning is the issue. Wherever there is a house for sale here one has to fear that when it is sold apartments will be built.

All in a day’s work for her as she appeals to other welfare agencies to provide clothing or bed linen and distributes much-needed food vouchers.

t comes as no surprise that the Buckley Street rail crossing at Essendon station is regarded as the worst intersection in Moonee Valley. The crossing has been an issue for a decade or more and continues to get worse, with little prospect of any remedial solution. The public purse is not overflowing with funds to make any significant changes. In the evening peak, vehicles bank back and into Mt Alexander Road. The complicated traffic signalling at Rose and Russell streets adds further to motorists’ frustration. Similarly, Buckley Street, west of Mt Alexander Road, is banked back more than 100 kilometres. The next council needs to consider creating a freeway on the south side as they did on the north side five years ago, but which won’t bring any joy to the businesses as far down as Cooper Street. But at least traffic will begin to move again.

Council cash cuts sausage sizzle chore BY EUGENE BENSON ESSENDON Primary School’s council is still awaiting a decision from the state government on a request for repair works and approval of its master plan. As The Weekly reported in March, the school had a master plan approved by the former government, but after the election it was left to new Education Minister Martin Dixon to decide the school’s future. Since March, funding has been granted to the school for urgent repairs to leaky roof tops, but problems with rising damp, sewage infrastructure and outdated, inadequate buildings remain. School council president Darren Arthur said the uncertainty was frustrating for the school community. ‘‘[With the former government] we thought we had the master plan process done, but unfortunately we are still in limbo with that.’’ Mr Arthur said while action from the state government was still pending, Moonee Valley Council and the parents association had made

some improvements possible. Moonee Valley Council has contributed $65,000 and the school’s parents association $13,000 to replace the existing boundary fence and undertake drainage works. Mr Arthur said the school was thrilled with the support from the council and had earmarked the works for January. ‘‘The old fence is in a bad state of disrepair, and we get some drainage issues as well with tan bark getting forced right up to the fence. The dirt has come up about half a metre since the fence was put in.’’ Parents association’s Georgia Reid said the old fence was installed in the ’60s and desperately needed replacing. ‘‘The fact the council has come on board is fantastic; that’s 65,000 less sausages the parents association has to sell.’’ Mr Dixon’s office did not provide a response before deadline. Mending fences: Tania Sharpe and Darren Arthur are pleased a new fence and earthmoving works will soon appear at their school. Picture: Michael Copp

Respite care makes for happy campers BY EUGENE BENSON TRADERS at East Keilor’s Milleara Mall are working together to help a not-for-profit group give a wellearned break to families across Melbourne’s west. Interchange Western Region Association is an organisation that provides respite care for families with children who have special needs. Innovative respite carer and school holiday camp co-ordinator Marcia Helmers runs camps for special needs children, but is always restricted by the lack of a regular funding stream. While planning a camp to Queenscliff this month, Mrs Helmers’ chance conversation with Moonee Valley councillor John Sipek at the Milleara Mall led to several traders coming forward to donate goods and services. With help from Bakers Delight, Tasman Meats, The Fresh Fruiterer, Long Macc Cafe and Milleara Deli, catering for the camp was virtually taken care of, she said. ‘‘The camp at Queenscliff is at the YMCA which has a commercial

kitchen so this way we can get the kids in the kitchen and helping with the cooking, and these donations of food and goods really does make a huge difference. ‘‘The more I get donated, the bigger the scope can be of each camp and the more camps I can offer.’’ East Keilor resident Filomena Romeo said her nine-year-old son Daniel, who has special needs that require full-time supervision, was greatly influenced by a camp he attended with Interchange. She says she was ‘‘truly thankful’’ for the donations and volunteering efforts, the benefits of which she saw first-hand. ‘‘Daniel is at the age where he is exploring, he’s learning about going out into the world so these camps are brilliant for helping with that confidence and independence. ‘‘He’s so happy when he comes back, he really was a different person.’’ Despite having more than 400 families on its books, the association wants to hear from families in

Lots of love: Filomena Romeo with her son Daniel, who has benefited from attending an Interchange camp. Moonee Valley, Maribyrnong, Brimbank and Wyndham who may be in need of respite care. ‘‘Looking after someone with special needs can be

taxing on families and siblings as well as — what we do with the camps is give mum’s and dad’s a well earned break,’’ Mrs Helmers said.

A lifetime to ponder a tragic moment A SINGLE decision changed the course of Anthony Bartl’s life. Now he’s resolved to do all he can to prevent others from becoming victims of road trauma. The Flemington resident was just six when he was struck by a car as he crossed a road without looking on his way home from school. Now a quadriplegic, Mr Bartl, 32, visited Taylors Lakes Secondary College last week to share a road safety message with year 11 students as part of a Fit to Drive program. Schools across the north-west are taking part in the new safety initiative, which aims to raise awareness of the consequences of risk-taking on the roads. Presentations are given by road trauma victims, firefighters and police officers. Students are also exposed to graphic footage and take part in peer group discussions. After he was hit, Mr Bartl’s parents employed a private investigator, who

found that the car that hit the boy was travelling 5km/h over the 60 speed limit. ‘‘If the driver had stuck to the speed limit I would have only received some bruising to my legs and arms,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s been a hell of a ride. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone else. Sometimes it’s been hard to stay positive, but I want people to know life does go on after a severe disability; you can still reach your dreams.’’ Mr Bartl completed a journalism degree at La Trobe University and is a qualified primary school teacher. In 2010, he won $50,000 on TV game show Hot Seat, which he used to travel around Australia. Keilor Downs’s Leading Senior Constable Gerard Dickinson told students about an accident in which a young woman lost both her legs and watched her fiance die in her arms. ‘‘She watched her fiance’s funeral on Skype in a hospital bed,’’ he said. ‘‘She did nothing wrong; another driver failed to give way. But if you put alcohol, drugs and speed into the mix you

can imagine how devastating road accidents can be.’’ Senior Constable Dickinson says, on average, one Victorian becomes a paraplegic as a result of a road accident every 17 days. ‘‘Young people have a mentality that after an accident they will either be OK or they will die,’’ he said. ‘‘Death is final, there is no pain . . . but what they don’t realise if that there are 20,000 injured in car accidents every year, those victims don’t walk away OK – their lives are changed irreparably.’’ Senior Constable Dickinson said the five main causes of road trauma in youth were speed, drink-driving, drugaffected driving, hooning and texting while driving. Year 11 student Tom Hortle said all western suburbs students should take part in the program. ‘‘It was really effective. It didn’t hide from the facts and Anthony was inspirational.’’ Strong message: Anthony Bartl urges students to play it safe on the road.

A revolution of rising costs and the internet present a challenge, and an opportunity, for small-scale dress designers and makers. Tegan Forder reports

A

USTRALIA’S manufacture and retail industries are facing tough times, but boutique dressmakers in Melbourne’s western suburbs are carving out a niche market to help weather uncertain times. Since the 1970s, made-to-wear clothing has become the norm, but with changing trends and a desire for something unique, four women are finding that by being versatile, they are keeping their businesses afloat. Born in Rome, Deborah Selleck moved to Australia when she was 10 and remembers Melbourne, then, as a hive of activity in the fashion industry. “Flinders Lane, where I started working, was full of manufacturers, button and trim suppliers, fabric suppliers. As a junior, I’d get sent down the road and told, ‘Go and get some buttons for this order’, so I’d be there looking at racks and racks and racks of buttons. It was great, I loved it. “But after they dropped the import quotas in the ’80s you could import a whole garment on what you would spend on fabric.” The owner of Deborah Selleck Designs in Seddon says Australia could have maintained its clothing manufacturing industry had it followed the same path as Italy. “They invested a lot of money in skills and equipment. Their mills and machinery are top-of-the-range and they produce the luxury product that they’re known for. We could have done the same with all the expertise we had in Australia.” Pointing out some intricate bead-work on a dress she’s working on, she says China and India have a booming manufacturing industry, not just because of the available labour but because they have machinery able to produce the intricate materials she favours. onna Umille and Lucy Laurita grew up with mothers who worked in the dressmaking industry until the work dried up. Despite the unstable nature of the

D

industry, both have followed the same path. “My mum never wanted to teach me,” Laurita laughs. “But when I was very little I used to sit behind her when she was sewing while I’d do her hair or give her a massage ... I just loved it.” The mother of two now runs her own label, Leiela, and wholesales to 10 stores around the country. It’s her made-to-measure business that’s gaining traction. She works out of a shopfront in Ascot Vale, most of the space being taken up by her workroom where clients come to try on Laurita’s sample dresses. It’s a similar story for Taylors Hill resident Umille. “My mum always did sewing and dressmaking from home, as did my grandmother so I was brought up with it,” the 24-year-old says. “I’ve been sewing since I was nine.” Umille decided to go it alone and has been running her business, A Donna Umille Creation, from her home in Taylors Hill for two-and-a-half years. The cars have been kicked out of the garage to make room for Umille’s pattern making, while two rooms inside have been transformed for sewing and fitting. wner of Elle and Stuart in Altona, Maureen Bourke also learned her sewing skills from her mother and developed a love of designing from an early age. “During the family road trips to Queensland, we’d stop at the petrol stations and grab all the paper towels to make dresses for our dolls,” she recalls. “My mum was really a great influence on that side of my life. She was really the one who taught me to sew.” The bubbly boutique owner is no stranger to operating small businesses, but it was only after she was encouraged by her aunt that she decided to combine her fashion and small business skills. Originally, she planned to stock only clothes she would buy, but cannily she included an alteration service, which has paid dividends with a number of her customers wanting clothes to be fitted.

O

She won a new startup business award last year and has since started stocking her own designs in-store. She drew up a design one night and put it together the next morning in the backroom of her shop. As Bourke put the dress on the model in the window, a passer-by started knocking on the door asking if she could buy it there and then. “The award gave me the chance to roll the dice and be a bit more adventurous and have confidence to make my own designs,” says Bourke. “It’s been fun.” Her own designs now make up a quarter of stock in the store and she’s keen to increase the percentage. t’s clear a love of creating fashion and a desire to make customers happy are required to beat the obstacles the industry can throw up. Selleck always wanted to be a fashion designer despite her family’s misgivings. “Most of my family were medical people and they thought that it was frivolous and silly so it wasn’t until I was in my 20s that I decided to do what I loved,” she recalls. After working for designers she decided to set out on her own to gain more worklife balance after the birth of her second child. Designing for just one client at a time appealed to her. “You become part of this whole intimate, emotional process where you’re dressing the one client for their special day,” she says. “You get a lot more satisfaction and a better life balance as well.” Breaking into the fashion business can be tough, so sometimes going it alone is the only way to get a foothold. “You need so much experience to go and work somewhere,’’ says Umille. ‘‘I applied for so many places but in the end I just did my own thing. No one would hire me because I’m not a senior sewer so I’d thought I’d do it from home.’’ She studied at Kangan TAFE to hone her skills in all areas of dressmaking from the design, pattern making and sewing. “It’s sad,’’ she says, ‘‘because people study

I

September 25, 2012

fashion and learn how to put things together and they can’t even use their skills because there just aren’t jobs out there.” To help retain and nurture those skills, Umille’s dream is to have a few boutiques of her own, where she can start employing people again in the industry. Also keen to hold onto those with the valued skills is Laurita, who depends on her dressmakers to make her bulk orders. “It’s hard to find dressmakers because it’s a dying trade,’’ she says. ‘‘There isn’t enough money in it. As a designer you do it tough. You do it because you love it.” The help of the dressmakers leaves time for Laurita and her assistant, Sara Crewther, to create the sample dresses for the label’s growing made-to-measure customer base. “We don’t advertise it [made-to-measure] as much as we should, but we’re finding that when people find us they’re saying, ‘We can’t believe you’re here, we can’t find anything in the retail stores’. “We’d definitely like to expand but times are pretty tough so we’re just happy with what we’re doing and gradually expanding. ‘‘Retail is hard at the moment, but the made-to-measure market is helping.’’ The internet is also having an impact with major retailers blaming online shopping for a decline in sales. Laurita says it’s definitely changing the way retailers do business. “When I started, I’d get an order for 40 dresses at a time and the retailers would be quite happy to have them on the shelves and sell them off.” Now, she says, retailers are reducing orders so her made-to-measure business is becoming more important. Umille sees online shopping as a mixed bag. On the one hand, people are looking to buy dresses overseas instead of going to a dressmaker, but for her, alterations make up a large part of the business. “Most of my alterations come from people buying off the internet,” she admits. “So in a way I do gain the alteration part of it. It’s a win and lose situation.”

TIMEOUT ●

A toast to the well bread HILARY McNEVIN EATING OUT t’s reminiscent of nanna’s kitchen, with embroidered tableclothes dressing the two communal tables in the small front room of this much-supported organic bakery. One table is old-school formica, the other dark wood. It’s a bit of a mish-mash but that’s Crumbs. This tried-and-true bakery recently opened a second shop in North Melbourne, but the flagship Ascot Vale store is still holding its own, serving wonderfully fresh sourdough loaves and pizza slices as well as luscious cakes, doughnuts and biscuits. Crumbs Organic Bakehouse has made its own stamp on Melbourne, supplying gluten-free

I

products as well as vegan morsels, all the while maintaining their quality of product. Don’t expect sticky gooey over-iced cakes here, not a lot of sugar is used in the cakes, giving emphasis to the produce used. An orange and poppy seed cake is a fine example of this. Its moist texture not overpowered by sugar, rather the oranges subtle, natural sweetness shines through with the savoury texture of the poppy seeds. Before you tuck into the sweet treats here, bear in mind the limited but delicious savoury selection of pizza slices ($4), with toppings such as grilled eggplant, pumpkin and mushroom. The slices we choose are large slabs of chewy dough topped with roasted capsicum, onion, lots of green olives, mushrooms and plump chunks of roasted tomato. It’s a vegan pizza slice, so there’s no cheese but there doesn’t need to be, the freshness of the vegetables and their flavours more than make up lack of mozzarella. All the pizzas, loaves, doughnuts and muffins sit on a simple wooden shelf in the front window — it’s very low key here and the room does look a bit worn out but that makes it more endearing.

CRUMBS ORGANIC BAKEHOUSE Address: 170 Union Road, Ascot Vale Contact: 9375 4777 Hours: Sunday-Wednesday, 11am-9pm; Thursday-Saturday, 11am-10pm Unlicensed Cash Only

There are quaint touches — large, glass juice bottles used as vases holding carnations and a retro fridge filled with organic soft drinks and juices. The coffee is good and attracts a stream of people who constantly come in and out of the shop for a decent brew to have in or takeaway, or to grab a muffin or loaf of bread for home. There’s a friendliness and ease created by the gentle service at Crumbs Organic Bakehouse. Nanna would be proud.

Sweet success: Crumbs has an old-world charm that extends from its wholesome vegan-friendly treats to the decor. Picture: Scott McNaughton

Geannie has always been a lover of fashion but not a slave to it.

Geannie makes no claims to being a milliner, but after a week-long workshop many years ago with renowned Louise Macdonald she was hooked.

She’s similarly inventive when it comes to her outfits. For this year, Geannie has purchased a summer dress with bursts of colourful flowers on a beige background. She will team it with a white organza coat and a hat spruced up with cornelli ribbon snaffled from a previously loved Lisa Ho jacket.

Geannie considers accessories to be the most important choices and doesn’t mind spending on shoes. ‘‘I bought my shoes this year at a Myer sale. They’re an Italian label, nude and black with a silver bow buckle. I’m happy to snazz up cheaper clothing, but I’m never afraid to invest in good shoes.’’ Geannie, now 58, does her own hair, makeup and nails for race days and believes these special fashion events are made for going ‘over the top’ in the glamour stakes. ‘‘It’s not something we get to do every day.’’

SPECTACULARSPRINGRACING

Cup memories are made of this By Carole Levy

e slept in a Morphettville horse stable as an apprentice jockey but Jim Johnson rose to receive the highest acclaim in the racing industry, riding three Melbourne Cup winners.

H

It was a humble start as a 15-year-old apprentice, and a tough one, recalls Jim who is now 83. ‘‘Things are much easier on today’s apprentices. Back then, we started work at 5am and didn’t finish until 8pm. And we got just one Sunday afternoon off each fortnight and earned 10 shillings a week. ‘‘But once I started actually riding, I loved every bit of it. It gets into your blood.’’

In 1963, Melbourne trainer Tony Lopes invited him to ride in Melbourne and that year Jim rode Gatum Gatum to victory in the Melbourne Cup. This lifted him to prominence in the eastern states and persuaded him to stay and try his luck on Victorian tracks.

...once I started actually riding, I loved every bit of it.

Although he didn’t recognise it as a youngster, Jim now believes he was born to race.

Success came quickly and he won Melbourne jockeys’ premierships in 1966 and ’67. He dominated Spring Carnival racing in 1966, winning nine weight-for-age events.

But possibly his best-remembered wins were on Rain Lover, the dual Melbourne Cup winner of 1968 and ’69.

‘‘My dad was a jockey, mum’s brothers were jockeys and, after my father died when I was four, the man who became my stepfather was a jockey.

Jim cites his second win on Rain Lover as the best and worst of times.

‘‘You’d think being four feet six inches (137 centimetres) tall and weighing four stone six pounds (28 kilograms) as a teenager, combined with my family background, I’d consider being a jockey. But it wasn’t until after I moved from Western Australia to Adelaide to live with my grandmother and a well-known trainer wanted to know if Alf Johnson’s (my dad) son was interested in working at his stable that it all began. It was during the war and there were no men around for stable work.’’

‘‘About six weeks before the Cup, Rain Lover got a virus and ran two poor races. I was getting blamed and copped heavy criticism in the press and racing circles. But he came good and, of course, went on to win the Cup.

Jim began his love affair with horses while deciding on that job.

‘‘In the post-race interview, I got my say: ‘For all my knockers, I hope you’re all crying in your beer because I’ll be going to the bank tomorrow.’ I must say it was a relief to get the win and silence the critics.’’

‘‘I fell in love with one of the horses, High Pen. I spoilt him, let him rest and gave him his water as he lay there. I made a bit of a sook of him. As it turned out, I later rode him to a few wins.’’

Inducted to the Australian Racing Hall of Fame in 2009 and with a total of 2185 wins to his credit, Jim, still a fit, handsome man, lives quietly in Taylors Lakes.

Jim went on to win four Adelaide jockeys’ premierships, riding more than 1000 horses to the winning post.

Always a humble man who tried to keep his feet on the ground when not in the stirrups, he remains surprised when people still recognise him.

Betting tips to flutter by By Carole Levy

ven people normally uninterested in betting on horseracing will often have a flutter on the Cup or other major race during the carnival. And, since betting on the gee-gees began, people have looked for a magic system to pick a winning horse.

E

exists that will work consistently, although chances can be improved by identifying certain factors, say some experts.

….since betting on the gee-gees began, people have looked for a magic system…

Casual punters are known to employ all kinds of esoteric patterns to pin down a winner. Children’s or family members’ birth dates, the jockey’s colours, the horse’s colour, jockey’s name, anniversary dates, dreams or simple hunches: each has been used to back a winner and many stick superstitiously with their chosen system. And why not? It can be as effective as any other, make a great post-race story and ‘prove’ one’s psychic peek into the doings of the universe.

Here are some ideas from experts on which to try your luck: • Look for a horse that came off a layoff in his last race. If he showed speed and faded at the end of the race, or has a closing running style and came up short at the finish, he might be a horse that needed a freshener and will improve in his next start. • If a horse lost ground during the middle of a race and then came back at the end, it may be an indication of “heart” so could be a good chance at his next start.

Endless data has been collected and examined but no betting system

• When checking odds just before post time, if you notice a horse is going off at odds much lower than the morning price, pay attention. The theory is that those in the “know” are expecting a big race out of the horse – especially true with first-time starters. • When a horse has a new jockey with a higher win percentage than previous jockeys, it can be a sign of good things to come. • Take careful note of a horse in the mounting yard; how he looks and acts can be key indicators of success. A horse with droopy ears or out to the side like a propeller is tired and lethargic – don’t bet on him. If his tail is pinned down between his legs he is afraid of something – don’t bet on him. Look for a horse that holds his head level; too low can be a signal that he is tired or not interested. Finally, look at how the horse is walking; a big, athletic walk is the one to look out for. If the hind foot doesn’t reach the same point (or beyond) as his front foot landing spot, it may mean the horse is very sore. Remember, there is no such thing as a sure thing! But good luck and hopefully you will leave the track with a heavy pocket and a light step.

ROSS McGRAVIE PROPERTY WRITER oung families can move into the comfort zone with this much-loved Essendon North residence. Positioned to please in a popular pocket north of Keilor Road, the weatherboard California bungalow (circa 1920s) is around the corner from restaurants, tram, shops and Niddrie Central, and close to sporting facilities, parkland, CityLink and DFO. Retained by one family for more than 50 years, the tidy dwelling has been lovingly maintained behind its brick-paved path, two silver birches, a driveway on either side, and its front carport. The house has been restumped, rewired and replumbed in various extensions over the years, and its walls restudded and replastered. Behind a neat front garden, verandah and security door is the entry hall, to the left of which is the main bedroom. Fitted with a ceiling fan and a wall of wardrobes, it also has an ensuite with Stegbar shower, toilet and small vanity.

Y

Next along the hall is a skylit Regeneration-style bathroom, which has a shower over bath, highlight window for excellent natural light, Heller heat lamp and vanity with Dorf taps. At the end of the hall is the family room featuring exposed beams, near-new carpet, an Osburn wood heater with Castlemaine slate fireplace surround, ceiling fan, mood lighting and a sliding door that opens to an atrium. The hall takes a slight L-shaped deviation past the lounge room, which could be used as a library, and the second bedroom with built-in robes. Adorned with a high, decorative ceiling reminiscent of the era, the lounge room also has an overhead fan, timber dado panel with complementary frieze, feature fireplace with slate hearth and Castlemaine slate surround. A desk and shelving feature on either side of the fireplace. Bi-fold doors in the family room open to the rear updated kitchen and meals area with floating timber floors. The original walls in this space have been moved to create the L-shaped kitchen which has a breakfast bar, older-style St George Imperial wall oven, stainless-steel canopy range hood, Chef fourburner cooktop, and excellent bench and cupboard space. It is next to a compact dining area, also with a ceiling fan and exposed beams. Beyond is the laundry and a passage to the original external toilet and fourth bedroom. The latter has built-in robes, a toilet and shower.

A security door opens to a covered sitting area with wood storage box and bluestone paving. Outside finds the double carport and a vast workshop or garage (with roof storage) that could easily be converted into a studio, billiards room or teen retreat. Another highlight are the north-facing gardens, which are watered by a sprinkler system via two 2000-litre water tanks and a tap. On a 611-square-metre block, the well-tended gardens consist of a water feature, majestic camphor laurel tree, tree ferns, Japanese lanterns, helleborus, posies, impatiens and a feature weeping silver birch.

VENDOR'SVIEW ●

House, fortunes on the rise ‘Views across to Brunswick’ and the views within are features of this renovated classic, writes Ross McGravie esleigh and Steve Swanson instantly fell for their single-fronted period dwelling on the edge of Ascot Vale’s renowned Travancore estate when they bought in 2007. Living at the time in Moonee Ponds, the couple wanted to remain within walking distance of Puckle Street and the many restaurants along Mount Alexander Road. And it wasn’t long before they felt they’d chosen well. “We loved the feel of the house as soon as we stepped through the front door. It had lots of character, along with the period features we love. The garden also appealed as it’s very private and easy to maintain,” Lesleigh said. Steve has done most of the renovations during their labour of love, Lesleigh says, with the cornices, fretwork and ceiling roses all retained. The entire house was also reblocked on its 252-square-metre block, with insulation added, airconditioners installed in the bedrooms, and the kitchen and bathroom modernised. “At times it was difficult living with all the dust and dirt while replacing the walls and ceilings, but it was well worth it in the end,” Lesleigh said. “We wanted to create a comfortable family home, and having the two living areas is ideal as they both get plenty of use.” Also appealing to professional couples, young families and those looking to downsize, the extended weatherboard dwelling has an entry hall with fretwork, two bedrooms (main with built in robes), central bathroom with European laundry, lounge room with fireplace, kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, and an informal living and dining zone. Outside are a paved courtyard and manicured gardens. Lesleigh said buyers could move in and enjoy the house, but there was still scope to improve for those who wanted to add their touch. “There is still the possible opportunity of adding on an extra level to increase the number

L

of rooms, and that would also make the most of the views across to Brunswick,” she said. But, regardless of extending or just enjoying the efforts of Steve and Lesleigh’s work, the lifestyle was ready to be enjoyed. “We love the location as it’s so close to just about everything, including Ascot Vale Primary, Moonee Ponds Creek walking and bike tracks as well as the local gym and public transport,” Lesleigh said. “It’s great being able to wander up the road to Hot Chilli Restaurant and Sugarbeat Cafe´, which are two of our favourites.’’

A guide along life’s path Getting his life on track led Charles Vella to help others improve theirs, writes Rebecca Miller

U

‘‘Beyond Landmark, there is one man — hypnotherapist Steve Kormas — who taught me the craft of application, to apply neuro-linguistic program and hypnosis beyond the classroom, ’’says Charles. ‘‘My life is now a constant lesson learnt by helping one individual at a time.’’ Being happy and healthy in life is not just something Charles teaches; he practises it too. ‘‘I’m happy being me: a husband, father, therapist and someone’s friend. I visit the gym regularly, cycle with friends and enjoy spending time with my family and renovating my home.’’ Charles has advice for anyone interested in a career as a life coach: ‘‘Work from your heart, train with a craftsman and love what you do.’’

2006, I went on to study clinical hypnotherapy.’’ He enjoys the personal satisfaction of helping people become unstuck. ‘‘My career allows me to help a person break free from whatever is holding them back.’’ He aims to improve an individuals quality of life, showing them how to achieve personal and business goals, get over unwanted behaviours and habits, let go of past traumatic events, relieve anxiety and quit addictions. ‘‘People generally seek help from me when mainstream medicine or psychology hasn’t worked and they realise their issue is within their unconscious control,’’ Charles says. He studied with Landmark Education, a course which started him on his journey of self-help and discovery.

nder his father’s influence, Essendon’s Charles Vella became a mechanical and electrical engineer. Later, though, his career took a turn, one towards helping others. Charles says his role as a life coach and clinical hypnotherapist is rewarding and satisfying beyond words. ‘‘Engineering is a satisfying career and can be rewarding, but to help a person achieve something they didn’t think they could or help them become unstuck is even more so’’. A self-help course led him to his new career. ‘‘I attended self-help courses to get my life on track. After a few, I achieved amazing results in my life — then I wanted to facilitate change for others,’’ says Charles. ‘‘After graduating from a neurolinguistic life coaching program in

MOTORING ●

New Porsche 911: simply stunning Ewan Kennedy road tests the iconic German supercar orsche’s iconic 911 has its first all-new body in years. Obviously the new 911 looks similar to previous models. If it didn’t, heads would roll in the design department after Porsche purists invaded the studio. However, it does have a distinctive shape that’s well-suited to the second decade of this millennium. Stand the old 911 and the new side by side and you can see the body is now larger. It also sits on a new stiffer platform to further firm up handling, as well as adding safety in a crash. The wheelbase has been lengthened and the track widened. There’s slightly more interior space in the 911 than in the superseded model due to the larger body. The front seats are large and support well. Though there are four seats, those in the back of the 911 are best used only by those who are desperate for transport and simply can’t get to their destination any other way. Having said that, the deep luggage compartment in the front of the 911 absorbs a lot more luggage than you anticipate and can even manage a mid-sized

P

suitcase with some soft bags. The Porsche Carrera S we reviewed has an improved version of the 3.8-litre flat-six engine. It now produces up to 294kW of power. A strong emphasis on torque means the engine is amazingly flexible, with good pulling power from as low as 2000 rpm. We found fuel consumption around town to be in the 12 to 14 litres per hundred kilometres range. The sound of the new 911’s engine is brilliant. The legend continues; Porsche 911 is approaching its 50th birthday and has appealed to many generations of drivers. Those who love the concept seem sure to be more than satisfied with this new generation. Those who have never previously owned one should perhaps treat themselves to the experience. A price tag of $268,550 for the Carrera S with the optional PDK automatic transmission may seem high, but compare it with supercars from Italy and its German competitors and it almost seems like a bargain.

Legend continues: The latest Porsche 911 Carrera S looks the same — but different.

Second player out after grand final melees BY TEO PELLIZZERI THE fallout from the Essendon District Football League division 1 grand final is finished, with West Coburg player Meki Lilino suspended for eight games at the tribunal last week. Lilino was the only player charged, with striking Airport West’s Ricky McVeigh, after the EDFL investigating

officer returned his findings after viewing the footage from the match. Lilino had already accepted a twoweek set penalty for tripping in the same game, meaning he will not be eligible to play until round 11 next season. The suspension ends the EDFL’s involvement in meting out penalties from the grand final. The game was punctuated by small

fights but a brawl in the final quarter when Airport West was well on the way to victory was the main melee during the Eagles’ 69-point win. West Coburg’s Abidkane Fitaax was suspended for a total of 11 games after pleading guilty to one count each of striking and kicking, reports that were made by umpires officiating on the day. Fitaax’s strike and kick directed at

Airport West’s Billy Iles was not captured on the footage scrutinised by the EDFL investigation officer. In Premier Division, Essendon Doutta Stars has signed coach Marcus Barham for next year. The former Gisborne premiership coach will return for a third season at Buckley Park after overseeing the Stars’ rise from ninth with a win and a draw in 2011 to sixth with eight wins

this season. Barham was all but certain to continue his tenure with the Stars after missing the top four by a game and percentage and his continuation in the role was announced by the club on Friday. Avondale Heights’ search for a successor to Chris Johnson is continuing with applications open for the senior coaching job, non-playing, until this Friday.

Title win earns Heights promotion BY TEO PELLIZZERI AVONDALE Heights claimed the FFV state league 3 north-west title to go with promotion on Saturday after a 2-0 win against Melbourne University and a big favour elsewhere. The Heights will go up a level as champions after long-time leader Sydenham Park faltered on the final

day. Avondale Heights entered the final round knowing a win would mean only a Sydenham Park win would deny it the title. Yarraville did the Heights a big favour by beating Sydenham Park at Keilor Lodge. Avondale Heights has, mainly due to a backlog of catch-up games, been some distance behind Sydenham Park

in the run home. The Heights were masterful in the run to the finish line, winning 10 and drawing one while conceding just two goals in the final 11 games.
