Happy in her own skin Mill Park resident Carmen Andrews (pictured at home) has lived with the debilitating effects of psoriasis for more than 30 years. She felt stigmatised when her skin flared up and says she didn’t wear a dress or short sleeves for all that time. But now on the mend after treatment, her life is back on tracks. She hopes a new awareness campaign launched on World Psoriasis Day will break down the barriers of embarrassment, fear and anxiety associated with the condition and lead others to seek the right medication. ■ STORY, PAGE 10

tight vote goes the way of mayoral veterans whittlesea

(SUPPLIED)

A new moon over the lake in front of Whittlesea council offices signalled a new broom at town hall, and the ‘broom’ duly made its sweep as anticipated by outgoing mayor Rex Griffin. The north ward representative had expected one of his more junior ward colleagues, Ricky Kirkham or Nicola Davis, would be standing in his place. Cr Griffin told the Weekly he had the chance to be voted in as mayor for a second term but had decided one of the younger councillors should “have a go”, and so relinquished “There are an opportunity to continue in a many job he had relished for the past challenges” 12 months. In fact, south-east ward councillor Mary Lalios became the new mayor of Whittlesea after a one-vote win over the only other nominee, Cr Davis, at a council meeting on Wednesday night. Cr Lalios was elected to council in 2005 and this is her third term in the top job, having served as mayor in 2008 and 2009. Her south-east ward colleague Stevan Kozmevski was elected deputy mayor. Cr Kozmevski was elected to the council in 1997 and served as mayor in 2011. When the vote at the council meeting hit five for Cr Lalios, Cr Griffin said he was “very MARY LALIOS AND STEVAN KOZMEVSKI disappointed” to see Cr Kirkham raise his hand in support of a third term in the top job for Cr Lalios, tipping the numbers against the people, but I believe it was done in the best bid of Cr Davis at 6/5. interest of the city, given the underlying “That was a shock,” Cr Griffin conceded, tensions.” Cr Kirkham described local although he said he recognised that Cr Lalios government as “a very interesting beast”. was “a very astute person” with the experience The Weekly understands that both he and needed to be mayor of such a fast-growing Cr Griffin have made similar submissions to city. the local government electoral review being Cr Kirkham told the Weekly his decision to undertaken by senior Liberal Party figure throw his support behind Cr Lalios was done Petro Georgiou, supporting greater stability with the intention of presenting a united front in local leadership by having popularly elected and discontinuing simmering divisions that mayors for four-year fixed terms, as is the case he said had no place in the council chamber. in some other states. “It was a very difficult decision to make and Cr Lalios said she had the passion and not one that I made lightly,” Cr Kirkham said. enthusiasm needed to do the job. “I understand the disappointment of other “There are many challenges our city faces

For tomorrow’s Wear Orange Wednesday, SES volunteers and their families and friends don the trademark colour to fly the flag for the organisation once known as “civil defence”. Wear Orange Day is part of Victoria State Emergency Service’s Week, with the colour highlighting the wide-ranging response capabilities required of volunteers and their community-based units at roadside rescues and during natural disasters. There are 5500 volunteers attached to SES units across Victoria and more than 27,000 Australia-wide. Craigieburn SES founder Paul Ledwich remembers the early 1980s when the local SES truck was parked in a member’s driveway when not in use and equipment was stored in sheds and garages. That was before a railing was put on the median strip to divide traffic on the Hume Highway. Easter was the nightmare long weekend of the road accident calendar. “Easter and Christmas ... but that’s all quietened down now,” Mr Ledwich said. These days, any time can be busy. Unit volunteers are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Sunbury ALP branch president and former Hume young citizen of the year, Jamie Byron has confirmed he will stand for Labor Party preselection. “The Labor party is, however, yet to open nominations for state seats and determine a preselection timetable,” he said. Sunbury councillor Jack Medcraft has said that he would consider contesting the seat. He stood for the seat of Macedon in 2006 and Niddrie in 2010. \ TARA MURRAY

Mr Ledwich remembers using his then 13-year-old son Martin as “the patient” for members learning to bandage, test blood pressure and stabilise broken bones. Now Martin is his unit controller, and first aid has become a lot more sophisticated. So, too, has the SES network, with Hume council supporting units at Sunbury and Broadmeadows as well as Craigieburn.

Clarification In last week’s Weekly, it was stated: “Although no group was specifically set up to oppose a Sunbury move out of Hume, a loose coalition of residents, including some organisers of the annual Sunfest event, established an internet-based opinion page for people to post alternative views.” The Weekly wishes to clarify that committee members of Sunfest have nothing to do with the organisation of this opinion page. The Sunfest committee is expressly non-political and has expressed concern that it may be perceived to be taking sides. \

alarm bells as north-west road funding falls by 27% transport

VicRoads funding for roads in Melbourne’s north-west has been cut by more than $40 million, according to figures released by the state opposition last week. The figures, based on VicRoads documents, show that across the state $160 million less was allocated in VicRoads’ 2012-13 funding than in 2011-12. In the metro north-west region, which includes Hume and Whittlesea, funding dropped by 27 per cent – from $149 million in 2011-12 to $108 million in 2012-13. The region, which covers 14 municipalities, includes four growth area councils: Hume, Whittlesea, Melton and Wyndham.

your voice BOYCOTT MARS THE MOMENT (Weekly, November 5) As Jack Ogilvie’s wife, I feel very strongly about this article. Since my husband became a councillor in 1990, I have responded to articles in your paper on only one other occasion. I have chosen to respond this time because I believe your reporter has inflamed an issue and defamed my husband. The abuse yelled from the gallery at the mayoral election and the exclusion of two councillors by other councillors in the mayoral discussions created a volatile situation any sensible person would walk away from. All authorities advise you that when a situation can get out of control you should walk away. Yet when my husband did this to defuse the tension, your reporter chose to, in my opinion, victimise him. Your reporter stated that “her [the new mayor’s] big night was marred by the antics” and I find it offensive and incorrect to call it “antics”. Your reporter failed to mention Jack Ogilvie had already withdrawn from running for mayor,

failed to mention that Jack Medcraft was prevented from speaking and failed to mention the calling out from the gallery. I feel the reporting on this issue was appalling. LESLEY OGILVIE \ SUNBURY As a Sunbury resident, I have concerns about the well-being of our community, that is if the [Local Government] minister decides to split Sunbury from Hume. After hearing of the atrocious carry-on that went on at the mayoral election meeting on Thursday night, my concerns have escalated three-fold. We voted these Sunbury councillors in to work for us. If they treat their peers like this in a public meeting, is it any wonder the rest of Hume want us out. These are the same men pushing to leave Hume, and they have the audacity to stand up and say, “Sunbury is capable enough to go it alone’’. Well, I’m very sorry, but if it’s with the likes of these councillors, we are already doomed. Let’s pray the minister can see sense and leave things the way they are. JULIE SMILEY \ VIA ONLINE

grow that mo, bro, and help beat cancer Nowadays you could be forgiven for confusing the pronunciation of the 11th month of the year. The take-up of Movember Foundation, the independent global charity that asks its participants to grow a moustache – or ‘mo’ – for the month of November to raise funds and awareness for prostate cancer and mental health issues, was staggering last year. More than 1.1 million ‘Mo Bros’ and ‘Mo Sistas’ joined the movement, raising $141.5 million across the world. The Australian tally was $29.1 million. Since its humble beginnings in 2003, Movember has raised more than $450 million towards men’s health research worldwide. Hume Central Secondary College teacher Michael Mawal has rallied teachers and students at the school to grow a moustache and contribute to tackling men’s health issues for the remainder of the month. While he has had no direct contact with anyone affected by prostate cancer, the Moreland youth worker works closely with young men dealing with mental health issues. “Seeing the increase in young teenage boys developing depression or anxiety, I wanted to make people aware that these people are struggling,” Mr Mawal said. It’s the third time he has taken part in the

campaign, and he’s managed to convince seven teachers and nine students to join in his hair-growing and fund-raising efforts. “I didn’t want to be embarrassed by myself with a sleazy mo. Now even the campus principal is involved,” Mr Mawal said. Their team of students and teachers hopes

LEASED Parkland TO give way for clinic A new GP super clinic is planned for parklands next to Banksia Gardens Community Centre at Broadmeadows. Hume council has resolved to surrender its long-term lease of the parklands, owned by the Department of Human Services and used as a community gardens and activities area abutting the centre, to allow the clinic development to go ahead. A report to the council anticipates the department would then sell an area of Banksia Gardens fronting Coleraine Street to Dianella Community Health so it is able to build and operate the clinic. Another part of the gardens, which the council has maintained and developed for more than 20 years, is a protected conservation site in Hume’s natural heritage strategy, containing native grasslands deemed significant. The council has notified the Department of Human Services of the site’s protected status. Redeeming its once peppercorn rental will save the council more than $27,000 a year. \ HG

fifty years of love

more space for caravan builder

A chance meeting at a Perth restaurant in 1961 has led to a lifetime together for Gladstone Park couple Beth and Lyle Wilson, who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last month. The couple (pictured, with their wedding photo) met in Scarborough in Western Australia through Mrs Wilson’s eldest sister and her friends while visiting from Victoria. “Lyle worked for Elders and came down from the country to Perth occasionally,” Mrs Wilson said. “That’s how he met my sister and friends, and then we met a couple of weeks later. “When my eldest sister and I went for a meal, the [Elders] boys happened to be there. My sister said, ‘Oh, they’re those boys we met the other night. Hello, hello! Come and meet my sister’.” Mr Wilson popped the question in May 1963 and the pair tied the knot in the Scarborough Baptist Church on October 12 of that year. The family often had to move depending on where Mr Wilson’s work for Elders took him.

“When we got married we lived in a place called Dumbleyung in Western Australia. We were there until 1965, then we came back to Melbourne,” Mr Wilson said. “We were in Shepparton from 1969 to 1972. Now we are here and have been since 1973.” The couple, both 76, have three daughters Leeza, 48, Joanne, 45, and Suzanne, 44, six

grandchildren and one great-granddaughter For the past 20 years, they have treated themselves to annual caravan trips to Queensland, meeting friends in Port Douglas, Rollingstone and Main Beach. The couple will celebrate their anniversary with family and friends this Saturday. \ LAURA PETITO

Hume mayor Casey Nunn has been vindicated in her belief in a caravan-led recovery, at least for one group of road-users. Earlier this year, Cr Nunn proposed Hume council investigate becoming an official caravan-friendly tourist town, but the bureaucracy found this was not a simple task as it would require significant and expensive infrastructure and space . But Cr Nunn pursued the idea and last week joined state Manufacturing Minister David Hodgett at the opening of a new $3.5 million manufacturing space for Nova Caravans at the company’s Campbellfield base. The new 3000-square-metre facility is expected to increase production capacity of Nova caravans by up to 40 per cent. The company, established in 2005, is one of the top 10 Victorian caravan manufacturers and employs 66 people. “The sector has grown steadily at around 3 per cent annually over the past five years and there were 11,300 new caravan and campervan registrations in Australia in the three years to 2012,” Mr Hodgett said. \ HG

REMOTE TEACHING

A computer with internet connection is all students will need to access state-of-theart equipment from La Trobe University’s physics department at Bundoora. The university’s next-generation approach to science education – Freely-Accessible Remote Laboratories (FAR Labs) – will be offered to all Australian secondary schools following its official launch on November 27. The program was designed to engage students in years 9 to 12 studying science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. For some years, La Trobe University academics Drs Brian Abbey and David Hoxley and Professor Paul Pigram have been working on a different approach to teaching physics in secondary schools. “Many schools lack specialist physics teachers, and the safety rules are very restrictive, among other things. I thought, we’ve got the experiments, so let’s connect them,” Dr Hoxley said. Schools can sign up to the program for free. Registration grants access to virtual hands-on laboratory experiences for their students, including access to the Australian Synchrotron. “James Cook University in Townsville

and Curtin University in Perth are leaders in long-distance education,” Dr Hoxley said of the program’s partner organisations, which also include Quantum Victoria. Subjects on offer include the power of different types of radiation, structural analysis of materials, and environmental science issues. Teachers from 82 schools have registered, including Northside Christian College in Bundoora and Whittlesea Secondary College, and more than a dozen have used the site so far. \ LEXI COTTEE » farlabs.edu.au

SASSANO’S $$$ CASH PAID

Whittlesea Interagency Taskforce on Gambling (WITOG) will host a community forum today to highlight the harm caused by poker machines. More than $93 million was lost in pokies in Whittlesea alone last year, after more than $100 million in 2011-12. A partnership of frontline service organisations dealing with the local impact of problem gambling has organised the forum. It includes Whittlesea Community Connections, Plenty Valley Community Health, Kildonan UnitingCare, Salvation Army Crossroads, Neami National, and Hume Whittlesea Primary Care Partnership. WITOG was set up in December last year after the collapse of the council-run Whittlesea Responsible Gaming Forum, which tried for almost a decade to bring venue operators and social support agencies together to work on problem areas. But venues were accused of refusing to trial reforms or support the agencies dealing with the impact of problem gambling. Community Connections chief executive Jemal Ahmet told the Weekly that venues were asked to limit the number of withdrawals through Eftpos – a scheme

introduced after the state government removed ATMs from gaming venues. “People can make multiple withdrawals until their money runs out or they reach a daily limit, and we asked this be restricted to one withdrawal,” Mr Ahmet said. “The venues said it would disadvantage other card-users, like diners, which is nonsense.” He said the venues also refused to contribute to a local fund for services for problem gamblers. A spokesman for ALH group, which runs the Bundoora Hotel, the Plough in Mill Park and the Excelsior in Thomastown, said demands on local venues to reduce problem gambling exceeded mandatory standards. Mr Ahmet will mediate today’s forum at which speakers will be Dr Mark Zirnsak, chairman of the Victorian Interchurch Gambling Taskforce; Whittlesea council chief executive David Turnbull; and the regional adviser on prevention of gambling-related harm, Dr Susan Rennie.

Education \ JO DAVY meets the Victorian Koori student of the year

I

n 2002, Casey Atkinson became the first indigenous student to complete years 7 to 12 at the prestigious Goulburn Valley Grammar School in Shepparton. Growing up in a Koori community 180 kilometres north-east of Melbourne, the odds were against Atkinson making it to graduation. “[Shepparton] is a small town with not a lot to do,” he says. “If you’re lucky enough to have positive people around you and positive pathways ahead, then you can try to use that to your advantage, but if you’re surrounded by the wrong people, it’s very easy to get caught up in a negative lifestyle.” Atkinson fell into the former category, encouraged by hardworking parents and an extended family that impressed upon him the value of education. Fast-forward 11 years and Atkinson is devoted to giving

Ac

young indigenous students in Melbourne’s northern suburbs the same support he says was integral to his schooling. The 28-year old Heidelberg resident completed a diploma of community services work at Swinburne University of Technology in 2012 through his position as an early school-leavers worker with the Victorian Aboriginal Community Services Association (VACSAL). Atkinson’s work with indigenous students at risk of leaving school earned him the Victorian Koori student of the year at the Victorian Training Awards on September 6. He says winning the award was “a humbling experience” and an acknowledgement of his contribution to the indigenous community that he is proud of. Despite a long-standing appreciation of the importance of education, Atkinson started working in the field just 12 months ago. Before joining VACSAL, he spent seven years working in multimedia

and web design at non-profit communications agency Fraynework Multimedia. It was during that time that Atkinson’s cousin committed suicide, and the tragedy prompted him to join forces with another cousin, Gary Saunders, to create a digital platform to tackle some of the issues facing indigenous youth. The platform, Indigital Centre, helps indigenous people tell their stories through digital media. With support from Fraynework and the Sidney Myer Fund, Atkinson and Saunders toured Victoria, drawing on their backgrounds in music and multimedia to engage young people. “One of the things that stood out to me through the workshops was that many of the kids had too much spare time on their hands and not a lot of positive influences around them because they weren’t going to school,” Atkinson says. After Indigital’s funding ran out (they recently received more and have plans to start running workshops again), Atkinson worked in Aboriginal housing for two years before taking up the position at VACSAL, where he was encouraged to undertake a qualification in addition to full-time work. “I wasn’t so interested in going back to uni full-time and not working,” he says. “But really learning the specifics of the area I was working in was very important to me.” The national rate of indigenous students obtaining their year 12 certificate or equivalent exceeded 50 per cent for the first time in 2012, according to Bureau of Statistics data released in March this year. Victoria’s rate of year 12 attainment for indigenous students rose by 5 per cent between 2006 and 2011, in the latest report on education by the Council of Australian Governments Reform Council. But Atkinson says we still have a long way to go in closing the gap between indigenous and non-indigenous students. “In some ways it’s improving and in others we’ve got a lot of work to do,” he says.

“we’ve got a lot of work to do”

“A lot has changed in the mindset of kids [since I finished school]. They see a lot of young people on TV and the internet getting famous from partying, and that’s definitely affected their views on the importance of school.” Atkinson works with up to 12 students from schools in Melbourne’s north-west at any one time. “The message that we’re really trying to get across is understanding why you’re staying at school … that outside of learning the basics, you’re also setting yourself up for a workplace environment. That 9 to 3 turns into a 9 to 5.” He says teachers can have a huge effect on a student’s motivation, and so can parents. “Without that support network, it can feel like a lost cause.” Atkinson connects with students any way he can. “Whatever the kid is interested in, whether it be art, sport, music, public speaking or multimedia, it’s important to utilise that for a potential future goal.” Racism, he says, continues to be a factor. “Coming from Goulburn Valley Grammar, it was more an elitist view on racism that I experienced – people looking down on Aboriginal people as being shitkickers. But a lot of Aboriginal students I’m working with are in public school so it’s not about money, it’s more just ignorant attitudes towards people they know nothing about. “Dad always taught me that at the end of the day you gauge a person from the person they are and not their background. A good person is a good person and a dickhead is a dickhead.” As Victorian Koori student of the year, Atkinson qualifies for the National Training Awards, to be held in Perth on November 22. But accolades are far from the endgame. “The award was a milestone for me, and I feel like I’m getting places I want to be, but I’m also hopeful this will inspire or encourage some of our other young students to push forward and follow through with their own dreams.” \ jdavy@theweeklyreview.com.au

BRIEFS SOCCER There will be no National Premier League in Victoria (NPLV) next season after talks with Football Federation Victoria failed to reach a resolution last week. The FFV announced on Friday that its existing league structure would continue in 2014 with a view to implementing the NPLV in 2015. It means the Victorian Premier League and state leagues will continue next winter. State League 1 Avondale Heights is the highest Moonee Valley club in the existing football pyramid, one division below the top flight. Representatives for a co-signatory collective of more than 60 member clubs of the FFV had successfully applied to the Magistrates Court for an injunction to prevent the FFV announcing successful NPLV applicants. The FFV board said it was unable to “reach a sustainable agreement” with the co-signatory clubs. The co-signatory collective had taken issue with the NPLV model proposed, including but not limited to issues with divisional structure, club classification, junior player pathways, and commercial and intellectual property rights.

The win keeps Bundoora RSL (80 points) close to ladder leader Brighton (83) while opening a gap to third-placed Moonee Ponds and fourth-placed Essendon (both 68). Rinks were split two each on Saturday, but Nick McIntyre’s 22-12 win against Brett Spurr proved the decisive score.

In division 2, section 2, Broadmeadows was a narrow loser, 14-79 to 4-74, against Sunbury. The loss failed to dislodge Broadmeadows

bulldogs rush to victory DIAMOND VALLEY CRICKET ASSOCIATION

Bundoora United was a team in a hurry on Saturday as the Bulldogs bowled out Camrea Taipans in time to claim an outright win in DVCA Money Shield. The eight-wicket victory wasn’t enough to put United into the top four, though, its 16 points good enough only for fifth behind Lalor Stars (18). United resumed its first innings on Saturday within 10 runs of claiming first-innings points and passed the Taipans’ 90 with six wickets in hand. Nicholas Curtin (35) and Scott Barnett (29) then pushed Bundoora United to 146, a lead of 66. Barnett (3-40) and Grant Fraser (4-26) then worked for quick wickets as the Taipans were bowled out for 87 in just 46.4 overs in their second dig. Barnett then bashed 22 not out to get United the outright win: 2-34 in just 2.4 overs. Earlier, Malith Gunathilake took 5-58 for the Taipans. Lalor Stars (9-229) comfortably defended its total made the previous weekend by bowling out Hurstbridge for 113. Jamie Scott did the damage for the barnett Stars with six wickets. Elsewhere in the division, South stars in Morang (156) fell short chasing outright Greensborough (223). win In Barclay Shield, Bundoora gained its first win of the season at Mernda’s expense. Defending 259, Bundoora had Mernda out for 136, thanks to 3-38 for Stuart Adams and wickets for four other bowlers. Epping’s 170 was enough to beat Plenty (153) with John Green (50) and Andrew Villani (54no) top scorers for the Power. Robert Tinsley (3-28) and Blake Dobbin (3-31) were best bowlers for Epping. Old Paradians/St Francis (134) didn’t have enough on the board to beat Rosanna, which made 6-135 in reply. Shaun Barker took 3-13 for Old Paradians-St Francis, but Rosanna reached the target by the 60th over. \ Not this time: Camrea Taipans’ Chamidu Perera shouts for an lbw against Bundoora United on Saturday.

salpietro keeps piling up the runs PREMIER CRICKET

Daniel Salpietro’s summer of runs went to a new level on Saturday as his unbeaten 152 led Greenvale to a draw against Hawthorn-Monash Uni. Salpietro and James Lidgett (55no) shared a 212-run stand to rescue Greenvale from a wobbly start and ensure a share of the points in the two-dayer at Greenvale Reserve. HMU posted 8-308 batting first the previous weekend, with stumps called after 56 overs on Saturday and Greenvale 2-221 in reply.

Salpietro and Victorian under-19 representative Lidgett came to the rescue after HMU made early inroads by taking 2-9. Salpietro now has accumulated 361 runs in six trips to the crease this season and is averaging 90.25. Batsmen reigned supreme at Windy Hill as Essendon answered Dandenong’s imposing total with a big run chase. Four half centuries in the top order did the job as Essendon bested Dandenong’s 8-293 by making 3-296 in reply. Aaron Shellie (55) ignited the chase early

before his departure at 1-67 bought Aaron Ayre (83) to the crease to join Ben MacRae (63) in a 103-run stand for the second wicket. Ayre and Solomon Mire (74no) kept the runs coming before James Seymour (11no) joined Mire to help steer the Bombers past the victory target. Such was Essendon’s pace in the chase, the Bombers were home with 12.3 overs to spare. Another round of two-day games starts this Saturday, with Greenvale away at Melbourne Uni, while Essendon is away at Camberwell. \ TEO PELLIZZERI

RPB sets up winning chance VSDCA/VTCA

Roxburgh Park-Broadmeadows was well placed to claim a weekend win after dismissing Sunshine for 124 on Sunday in Sub-District cricket east-west first XI. RPB chased the runs on Sunday after the Weekly went to print. One persistent partnership was enough to push Sunshine into triple figures on Saturday, but wickets were otherwise cheap and regular for RPB, which won the toss and chose to bowl at Dempster Park. A 55-run stand for the third wicket got Sunshine to 2-66, but Patrick Matautaava trapping Troy Stone lbw for 32 proved to be a key wicket. Matautaava took 4-27 as best of the RPB bowlers, while Mitchell Streiff (3-16) and Bryce Preston (2-32) were other multiple wicket-takers. Go to northernweekly.com.au for an updated score. In north-south first XI, Plenty Valley set Elsternwick a monumental chase even after being sent in by the home team at Elsternwick Park. Sean Ayres struck his second consecutive ton with 123, while Dylan Forster made 118. A 193-run stand for the second wicket by the centurions put Plenty Valley on track for 3-302, with Lorenzo Ingram’s 42no adding the finishing touches. Elsternwick chased the runs on Sunday after the Weekly went to print. Go to northernweekly.com.au for an updated score. In the Victorian Turf Cricket Association, Greenvale (279) comfortably beat Old Mentonians (154) in senior division. Luke Rosbrook (3-31) led the bowling for Greenvale, while Jeremy Brown (2-38), Chinthaka Jayasinghe (2-35) and Michael Jones (2-8) were other multiple wicket-takers. In north division, Tullamarine (210) beat Williamstown CYMS (152) with Modera Perera (5-35) and David Zahorodni (3-42) doing the damage. Westmeadows (147) fell short against PEGS (9-279).\ TP NOVEMBER 12, 2013 \ NORTHERN WEEKLY 27
