a new era PUBLISHER’S MESSAGE

Dear readers,

Bleak outlook: Rod Wilson has called on the community to support the Medicare Local network. (STEPHEN MCKENZIE)

Medicare Locals fear axe about to fall Epping

Speculation is rife that the federal government plans to shut down Medicare Locals in the May budget, according to a number of Medicare Local chief executives in the northern suburbs. The national network of Medicare Locals was established by the Rudd government under its 2011 national health reforms. They were aimed at improving primary health care by co-ordinating local health providers for tailored community programs. The Northern Melbourne Medicare Local (NMML) services Banyule, Darebin, Hume, Whittlesea and Nillumbik. A spokesman from NMML said he was unsure of who tipped the network off about the government’s proposals. All 61 Medicare Local chief executives took part in numerous conference calls last week to discuss the

possible ramifications of the proposed shutdown. Acting NMML CEO Rod Wilson acknowledged speculation surrounding the local health bodies and urged the community to recognise and support their work in the lead-up to the federal budget. “Since July last year, NMML has enabled 26,000 urgent home doctor visits, helped 3000 residents suffering short-term mental distress to access free counselling, and funded 58 GP clinics across the north to open at night and weekends,” he said. Northern Health executive director Jenni Smith said the hospital’s partnership with NMML had helped it achieve significant improvements for the hospital network and local residents. “The number of emergency presentations was reduced by 42 per cent during the after-hours period,” she said. However, federal Health Minister Peter

Dutton last Wednesday painted a bleak picture for the Medicare Locals’ survival. “You can’t see a doctor at a Medicare Local and you can’t process your Medicare claim form,” he said. “One thing that we are very worried about is the fact that Labor, when they were in government, set up many new bureaucracies – 12 new bureaucracies in health – and it took money away from frontline services. “What I am determined to do is make sure we get money back to doctors and nurses and away from health bureaucrats.” The NMML is based in Ivanhoe East and employs about 30 staff. Scullin MP Andrew Giles said Prime Minister Tony Abbott was about to break a pre-election promise. “Ten days before the last election, the Prime Minister promised, ‘We’re not shutting any Medicare Locals’,” he said. \ LEXI COTTEE

Today is somewhat bittersweet for Metro Media Publishing as we publish The Northern Weekly for the last time. The Northern Weekly, along with the former Hume Weekly and Whittlesea Weekly, has played a major part in the social, political, economic and sporting life of the northern suburbs for more than a decade. In that time, we have produced outstanding journalism, creating a strong bond with our readers and a compelling environment for our advertisers. We are proud to have helped write the history of this rapidly changing part of Melbourne. This newspaper, too, has changed significantly over that time as we have sought to keep it relevant and engaging, and it is about to change once more. From next week, The Northern Weekly will be replaced by the new Northern Star Weekly, a joint venture between MMP and Star News Group. MMP Star will publish six titles under the Star Weekly banner: the Northern Star Weekly, Wyndham Star Weekly, Maribyrnong & Hobsons Bay Star Weekly, Melton & Moorabool Star Weekly, Sunbury & Macedon Ranges Star Weekly and Brimbank & North West Star Weekly. Total circulation for the six publications is more than 310,000 copies. The merger of our newspapers in the north and west will create the best publication in each market, offering even better content and a superior environment for advertisers. So while we pause today to recognise the grand past of The Northern Weekly, and thank all of those people who have played a large part in its success, we look forward with confidence to the creation of the best newspaper business in the north, the Star Weekly. \ TRENT CASSON \ CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER, METRO MEDIA PUBLISHING

barracks play a role in history anzac exhibition

1500 pay tribute to our heroes Anzac services

Anzac Day dawn services at Maygar Barracks, Broadmeadows, and Epping RSL last Friday, were followed by a Craigieburn service at 10am. More than 1500 people gathered around the war memorial stone in Craigieburn’s emergency services precinct to lay wreaths of remembrance. What made this year’s event extra special for organiser Michael Casha was the decision to play both the New Zealand and Australian national anthems – the former in Maori and English. “I looked around and saw people singing along,” Mr Casha said. “Young and old were there. \ HG » Picture gallery: northernweekly.com.au

We won’t forget: Bugler Denis Hayman, who served in the Prince of Wales’s Light Horse regiment, plays the last post at Craigieburn. (Top left) Scouts were among those who paid tribute. (DARREN HOWE)

This year’s Anzac Day services herald the coming centenary of World War I, which started in mid-1914 and ended at 11am on Armistice Day on November 11, 1918 — the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Alongside Gallipoli, there will be many different centennial dates commemorating diverse “theatres of war”, as big battles are sometimes called. These will include the charge of the Australian Light Horse regiment at the battle of Beersheba in 1917, and battles fought across trenches as Anzacs bunkered down in the fields of Flanders. Britain declared war on Germany on August 4, 1914. Two weeks and one day later, Broadmeadows became the epicentre for the enlistment of Victorian men to the Imperial Forces, as Australian regiments assigned to the British Army were then known. The Maygar Barracks were built in the grounds of the former Mornington Park estate on Camp Road and the regiment formed there in 1914 was the 6th Light Horse Regiment, later to be known as the 8th Light Horse. To mark the centenary of the barracks’ opening, Hume council is appealing for public help to source photographic and historic material for an exhibition to be held at the Hume Global Learning Centre, in Broadmeadows, in August and September this year. \ HELEN GRIMAUX

What’s with the finger pointing at pensioners and the sick as though they’re solely to blame for the supposed budget emergency we’re in? Treasurer Joe Hockey makes some valid points about the need to raise the pension age and why government services can no longer be free. However, it all seems disingenuous when you look at some of the benefits he continues to support for people not exactly doing it tough, such as the Medicare rebate for high-income earners; mining industry fuel subsidies worth $2 billion a year; negative gearing and scrapping Labor’s fringe benefit tax on leasing cars. Meanwhile, the Abbott government wants to scrap the mining tax and refuses to raise taxes on high-income earners, leaving the sick and those approaching retirement to feel like they’re a burden on the country. \ DAVID BONNICI

State Education Minister Martin Dixon stepped in with $5.1 million last year to support the industry-focused program, and he said last week that funding would continue. “Under a Victorian Coalition government, this program will continue to benefit vulnerable students who need strong pathways from school into further education and work,” Mr Dixon said. Hume Whittlesea Workplace Learning, a joint RMIT and Kangan Institute venture, is responsible for the program in Melbourne’s north. Whittlesea’s workplace co-ordinator, Sharon Smith, says the funding will allow her to continue speaking to local employers about providing workplace learning opportunities such as work experience or school-based apprenticeships for secondary students. Youth unemployment has hit 15.4 per cent in Melbourne’s north-west and 13.3 per cent in the north-east. The state average is 12.4 per cent. \ LC

aged care needs ‘new view’ Broadmeadows

Telling tales: Wadad Hassoun at a multicultural story-time at the Hume Global Learning Centre at Broadmeadows. (SCOTT MCNAUGHTON)

Aged care services should be adapted to suit the needs of new and emerging ethnic communities, according to a peak multicultural lobby group. The Ethnic Communities Council of Victoria (ECCV) appealed to Victorian and federal budget decision-makers to commit to better support for ethnic groups. In a discussion paper, Building New Bridges, launched by Health Minister David Davis at Broadmeadows last week, the ECCV called on governments and the aged-care sector to strengthen their engagement with new and emerging communities in Victoria. It cited a growing proportion of older people from new and emerging communities who lack access to culturally responsive services. ECCV deputy chairwoman Marion Lau said the discussion paper aimed to help close service gaps with innovative solutions. “Building New Bridges is about reaching out, engaging, and partnering with new and emerging communities,” Ms Lau said. “The three symbolic pillars of such bridges are multicultural communities, government, and aged care and health services. We believe working closely together is essential in improving access to services for this growing

proportion of our community. “The number of older people from new and emerging communities is significant – about 100,000 people aged 55 and over belong to new and emerging communities in Victoria.” Mr Davis acknowledged the wider implications of providing for culturally and linguistically diverse communities. “Right now in Victoria, we know there is growing need for services for seniors in these communities,” Mr Davis said. “I hope this discussion paper generates wider consultation, community engagement and more partnership … at every level.” The ECCV also calls on all political parties to uphold the principles of the Multicultural Victoria Act 2011. These focus on the three Rs of social justice and cultural diversity, outlined as: ■ Redistribution of resources to improve fair and equitable access for Victoria’s large multicultural population; ■ Recognition of culturally diverse Victorians through real service responses to their cultural and language needs; and ■ Representation by giving a voice to culturally diverse Victorians. \ HELEN GRIMAUX » eccv.org.au 10009843-01-a29Apr©MMP

LION HEART

hey organised to meet at a McDonald’s restaurant in Greensborough in 2011, the fast-food outlet being considered the most suitable place to break the ice. His hands were empty, but Ashley Wells, then still a teenager, carried the burden of a history of family dysfunction and years of living in out-of-home care. The encounter would become the first of many with Renee Kefalas, a mentoring co-ordinator across the northern region with not-for-profit youth service Whitelion. Wells had been referred to the organisation, which works with young people at risk of falling off the radar, by his Department of Human Services case worker. “My case worker told Renee that I was getting quite bored on the weekends and had nothing to do,” Wells, now 20, recalls. Kefalas says Wells presented as an enthusiastic, albeit terribly cautious, adolescent. “The first time I met him he was very shy and quiet,” she says. But the meeting went swimmingly and Wells soon signed up to the Whitelion mentoring program that partners ordinary members of the community with young people who have gone through the youth justice system or who have been living in out-of-home care and suddenly find themselves unable to cope on their own. Like the hundreds of young people who leave out-of-home care each year, Wells was faced with the prospect of finding his own housing once he turned 18. The transition can be difficult and for many the wheels fall off when the support ends. “It was hard because over my years in care I always felt I had a home to go to and then I didn’t have anywhere to call home,” says Wells, who briefly lived with his sister and then slept on a mattress at his brother’s house. “It wasn’t a home, it was just a place to go and sleep,” he recalls. Wells later lived with his partner, with whom he has a daughter, but the relationship broke down and he ended up homeless. “I go and see her [my daughter] every fortnight on my pay days,” he says. “Every time I leave the house I feel bad and stuff but, then again, I feel I’ll be there at some point in her life.” For almost a year he has been residing in supported accommodation at a housing block in Footscray operated by not-for-profit organisation Berry Street. Young people living at the block must be enrolled in education or vocational training to qualify for the temporary housing. “We basically have to find our own housing when we turn 18, but that is also supported with furniture and other things,” Wells says. In the form of a mentor named Mal, he also had support to help his transition from the state care system to the daunting reality of the real world. Wells counts this friendship as a leading reason he has got his life back on track. consistent people in their life have been The pair meet every fortnight for a few RENEE KEFALAS professional workers.” hours, but Mal also attends weekend footy AND ASHLEY WELLS Wells, who aspires to become a truck matches to watch Wells play as part of a disability driver, has accessed several other programs side in Coburg. offered by Whitelion that assist with job training, support and “He’s given me lots of confidence,” Wells says. “He rings me employment. and asks how I am and I text him to see what he’s up to.

I’m in a good place where I feel like I can give back to other young people and lead them on the right path because you can achieve things in life.” Ferguson agrees. “I love seeing young people achieve and move through life and become independent and achieve their goals and dreams.” A $1 million state government-funded research project, dubbed Beyond 18, is investigating young people’s experience during their transition from out-of-home care and after they have left care. The five-year study began in 2012 and will focus on young people scheduled to move out of the system this year. Ferguson says there is no quick fix to the problem, and she would welcome anything that would trigger further support for organisations offering services. “It’s a chronic problem. I think homelessness of young people is on the rise but because of couch surfing it probably doesn’t get acknowledged as much as it should.” \ rfedele@mmpgroup.com.au » whitelion.org.au APRIL 29, 2014 \ NORTHERN WEEKLY 11

airport sheds old for new

road safety

Tullamarine

(MICHAEL COPP)

A tower is coming down and a new terminal is going up to make entry to Melbourne a bit less rugged for passengers of Tiger and Rex airlines at the Tullamarine airport. The former water tower, which carries the familiar Tiger branding, is coming down brick by brick, and a new fourth terminal, T4, will take the place of the “tin shed” currently used by Tiger and Rex. The new terminal is part of Melbourne Airport’s largest transformation since it opened more than 40 years ago, involving an investment of about $10 billion in the next 20 years and a masterplan approved by federal and state governments. Another major plank of the plan is a rail link to Southern Cross railway station. That project will see a new rail service running along dedicated tracks from the airport to Albion, where it will join the existing rail network. \ HG

Almost 50 blokes have become members of the Lalor and District Men’s Shed in its first month of operation. Thomastown MP Bronwyn Halfpenny backed a community campaign for a men’s shed in Lalor in July by calling on local businesses and community groups to donate materials to help kickstart the program. An official opening was held on March 28 in the old classrooms at Peter Lalor Vocational College. Local residents, politicians and Whittlesea councillors were at the opening ceremony, where praise was heaped on Ms Halfpenny who was instrumental in securing the use of the now-vacant classrooms as an initial base. “It’s been talked about for some time and I just gave it a little prod at the end,” she said. The shed’s partnership with the college makes it one of a kind. Students are given the chance to collaborate with the men on projects such as a steel-frame pergola now being built for the school. College principal Paul Ryan said the school had badged itself by offering only VCAL and VET programs and specialising in preparing students for the workplace.

Men at work: Shed president Brian McDonagh and Allan Carbis work on their creations. (SCOTT MCNAUGHTON)

Shed secretary Allan Carbis, a retired electrician, said some of the members were also ex-tradies and a few taught trade subjects at various TAFE colleges. “But it’s not about that,” Mr Carbis said.

“We’d be happy to have people come along just for a coffee,” he added. He said despite the name, the ‘shed’ also welcomed women. \ LEXI COTTEE

secession scenario the talk of the town Sunbury

Having a say: Amanda Millar addresses a public forum at the Sunbury Memorial Hall. (MICHAEL COPP)

She said the consultation report would also be made available to the public early next month, soon after its publication. The government was unable to say whether submissions direct to the panel would also be made available. Government project consultation usually involves the posting of public submissions,

along with procedural information, online. The website created for the Sunbury-out-ofHume project has not been updated since April 2, which was before the previous minister, Jeanette Powell, stood aside. \ HELEN GRIMAUX » http://bit.ly/1jcregF

School funding

Whittlesea Secondary College got an unexpected windfall last week when Premier Denis Napthine and Education Minister Martin Dixon handed over $4.7 million to support the school’s burgeoning number of junior students. School principal Terry Twomey said the grant was “a huge vote of confidence” for the school after hard years following the Black Saturday bushfires. “Twenty-one members of the school community were lost in the fires, and there was the impact afterwards of people rebuilding and relocating.” In the past four years, the school’s enrolment has gone from 775 to 915, more than 500 being in years 7 to 9. The grant will enable expansion of the junior school and the school’s performing arts centre. The Premier also announced $1.6 million for Wallan Primary School for an upgrade of its classrooms and administration area. He said the grants were part of $8.8 billion set aside in the education budget for primary and secondary schools. \ HG

Community consultation is over and the submissions are ready for the panel appointed to steer Sunbury’s secession from Hume. A spokesman for new Local Government Minister Tim Bull said the Sunbury-out-ofHume panel had received 65 submissions. The panel’s report is due to be handed in to the minister by the end of June. Among organisations and individuals who made submissions were Hume council, Melbourne Airport Corporation and the Broadmeadows Progress Association. Collating and editing has begun on community feedback, both written and spoken, including comments lodged by more than 500 people who attended one of the nine consultation sessions held during the two weeks before Easter. The community consultative committee’s chairwoman, Northern Victoria MP Amanda Millar, said the committee was due to deliver its findings to the minister and the panel this week. “The committee is currently working hard to finalise its report to ensure that the voices of Sunbury and the wider Hume communities are heard as part of this consultation process,” Mrs Millar said.

Motoring \ rod easdown hails 50 years of the game-changing mustang

F

ord’s Mustang, one of the world’s most iconic sports cars, is turning 50 but the man who made it possible won’t be at the party. Lee Iacocca, now 89 and regarded as the father of the Mustang, had a falling out with Ford 14 years after the car was launched. The Mustang, which at the time proved the financial salvation of the Ford Motor Company, was launched in New York on April 17, 1964, and the American car industry being what it is, the car was called a 1965 model. Simultaneous launches were held in 11 European countries. After the New York event, American motoring journalists took Mustangs on a 1200-kilometre drive intended to underline the car’s reliability. The car was unique. Two-door, four-seat cars were hardly rare but this was the first that offered sports-car looks with passenger-car durability at a budget price. The US charge was $2368 – the price of an average car. That bought a base model with a 76-kilowatt 2.8-litre six-cylinder motor and a three-speed manual gearbox. From there prices climbed; the options list was one of the longest in Ford’s history and included everything from a three-speed auto, power brakes and two-speed wipers to a 200-kilowatt, 4.7-litre V8 with a four-speed manual. The Mustang, in convertible and hardtop,

was an instant hit and became an evergreen, recording nine million-plus sales in 50 years. Anniversary celebrations are being held in New York, Las Vegas and Charlotte and about 150 Australian enthusiasts are attending. Two 1800-kilometre drives have been organised, both starting in Oklahoma. The eastbound drive finishes in Charlotte, North Carolina, the westbound in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the same time a current Mustang is being displayed on the observation deck of New York’s Empire State Building. Ford Australia has also run a social media campaign inviting people to nominate an equivalent of Route 66 for a Mustang drive. Iacocca was a vice president of Ford and general manager of the Ford Division during development of the Mustang, and was the car’s driving force. He said its launch was one of the proudest moments in his life. Its tearaway success enhanced his career considerably and he became president of the company in 1970. But a heavy public clash with Henry Ford II led to his sacking in 1978. He was immediately courted by Chrysler and was appointed president, later publishing his autobiography, Iacocca, which became a bible for aspiring executives worldwide. Portfolio magazine named him the 18th-greatest American CEO of all time. \ reasdown@theweeklyreview.com.au

jets stall again edfl

Greenvale’s premiership defence looks increasingly shaky after a third straight loss to start the Essendon District Football League season on Saturday. This time it was Airport West which downed the Jets, coming from 11 points down at three-quarter time to win the Premier Division match 14.9 (93) to 13.6 (84) at Greenvale Reserve. Greenvale kicked with a stiff breeze in the first term and started magnificently, with a goal within 10 seconds of the bounce. The Eagles didn’t kick a goal until midway through the quarter and by quarter-time had managed a wasteful 1.5 to the home side’s 5.3. Airport West slowly found a way back into the contest using the wind well in the second, but Greenvale’s pressure around the ball made it difficult for the visitors. The Eagles still managed to close the gap to only four points by half-time after Aaron Sweet kicked a wobbly snap late in the term. The game lifted in intensity in the third term with Airport West grabbing the lead for the first time, only for Aaron Mansfield to regain it for the Jets with a long goal. Greenvale kicked the next two to stretch out the lead, but two goals in a minute to the visitors reduced the margin to under a goal again. Joseph Gazzo, who was a constant threat for Greenvale, extended the lead to nine points

by the final change, and when Greenvale kicked the opening goal of the fourth quarter it looked is if its first win of the season was on the cards. But Airport West responded in style, with the Eagles’ midfielders throwing themselves into every contest and driving the ball forward regularly. They regained the lead midway through the final term through Marcus Kenny, and some great work down the wing from Gavin Urquhart gave Clayton Rogers the chance to kick another goal and give the visitors a handy buffer. Greenvale had its chances late as it drove the ball forward, but a lack of composure saw the ball constantly end in the hands of the Eagles’ defenders as the visitors held on for a memorable victory. Greenvale coach Adam McPhee was bitterly disappointed with how the game finished, especially after being in a winning position. “This one hurt more than the first two rounds, to be honest, because we actually played some pretty good footy for three quarters,” he said. “We had a side out there that was capable of winning but in the last quarter there wasn’t a will to win, so that’s disappointing. “Our skill errors really hurt us, our turnovers in the third and fourth quarters, and it’s happening too much.” EWEN MCRAE emcrae@mmpgroup.com.au.
