Patience with hoons exhausted BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM MORE than 180 north-west residents are urging the state government to give police extra resources to end the hoon behaviour plaguing their neighbourhoods before someone is killed. Taylors Lakes resident Silvia, who did not want her last name published, launched a petition after her husband was assaulted by a group of hoon drivers late last year. The men were speeding down Lady Nelson Way, drag racing and doing burnouts for more than half an hour before Silvia’s husband asked them to leave. ‘‘As soon as he started speaking to them they were punching him and pushing him,’’ she said. ‘‘He had to be rushed to the hospital. They were all in unregistered cars without number plates so they couldn’t be identified. We are tired of living our lives in fear.’’ Silvia told the Weekly she was afraid to be identified, fearing the hoons could attack her family again. ‘‘The residents of Taylors Lakes have had enough,’’ she said. ‘‘The police have been really supportive, but we need more serious action to be taken before more people get assaulted or killed. It’s a constant issue in the area, particularly on Sunshine Avenue, down Lady Nelson Way, and on the Melton Highway.’’ The Weekly reported in December that 124 Melton drivers had their cars impounded in 2012, compared to 78 in 2011. In Brimbank, 252 drivers ‘lost’ their cars, compared to 307 the previous year. Melton’s Leading Senior Constable Allan Edwards said it wasn’t uncommon for physical assaults to be linked to hooning. ‘‘Unfortunately, these people think they are invincible and above the law,’’ he said. ‘‘We urge residents

not to approach the offenders and instead call police immediately.’’ Senior Constable Edwards said hotspots in the north-west included streets in Taylors Lakes, Melton Highway, Plumpton Road in Melton, Calder Park Drive and the back streets of Hillside. Industrial lots in Deer Park, particularly off Robinson Road, have also been the location of illegal drag racing meets. ‘‘Social media is making it progressively difficult for police to catch offenders because they are doing it in secluded spots where police aren’t going to be called immediately,’’ he said. ‘‘Once police arrive many of the cars speed off in different directions.’’ Brimbank’s Acting Sergeant David England said highway patrol officers would close in on areas of Kings Park, Sunshine and Taylors Lakes from next Monday. He said police were reviewing files to close in on repeat offenders residing locally. ‘‘There will be police patrolling these areas in unmarked cars, with automatic number plate recognition and speed cameras set up,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s an ongoing issue and we will be cracking down on reckless drivers and impounding cars.’’ About 20 concerned residents met with Keilor Labor MP Natalie Hutchins, Derrimut Labor MP Telmo Languiller and Keilor Downs’ Senior Sergeant Wayne Moed on Saturday. Ms Hutchins will submit the petition to State Parliament in the next month. She urged residents to write to Police Minister Peter Ryan. ‘‘Police in this area work hard,’’ she said. ‘‘But they need to have adequate funds and numbers behind them. ‘‘Police numbers continue to become more of an issue in the west as the population rapidly grows.’’

The new Wild West A SUNSHINE North man will be without his new car for the next 30 days, having been caught hooning three days after registering the vehicle. He joins a growing list of Brimbank residents contributing to the west’s reputation as the hoon capital of Victoria. The man, 20, was caught driving at 160km/h in Hoppers Crossing last Wednesday night. Four passengers aged 17-19 were in the car. A police spokeswoman said Brimbank had the second-worst record in Victoria, with 1113 cars impounded since hoon laws were introduced in July 2006. The man will have to pay almost

$700 to have his car released after 30 days. He will be charged on summons with speeding, dangerous driving, failing to comply with conditions of his permit and other traffic offences. Under harsher anti-hoon laws introduced in 2011, cars can be impounded on the spot for 30 days for a first offence. Police can apply to the courts to have vehicles owned by serious or repeat offenders impounded for up to a further three months. Courts can also order the permanent forfeiture of cars. About 170 cars were crushed in Victoria in 2012. — Helen Grimaux

Back to end of housing queue BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM FOR Shane Moss, home is wherever he lays his head for the night. Often it’s under the stars — on a park bench, huddled behind a building or, on a mild summer night, under a tree somewhere, hidden from the rest of society. Late last year, the 42-year-old was living in a commission home in Horsham, having waited more than 10 years to secure permanent housing from the Department of Human Services. He’s now homeless again after being forced to return to Albion last month when his 82-yearold mother fell ill and was shifted into a nursing home. ‘‘The department told me that because I gave up my house in Horsham I have given up my right for a home,’’ Mr Moss said. ‘‘But what was I supposed to do when I was told my mum could die on any day? ‘‘I want to look after myself, but how can I when I’m homeless. Instead of helping her I’ve gone straight down to the bottom of the housing list again.’’ Since moving to Albion, Mr Moss has alternated between staying at a friend’s house and sleeping on the streets. He said he had been told by DHS it could be months before he could move into transitional housing. He said while there were support services for elderly people and families in need, too often single, middle-aged people like himself missed out. Former housemate Jack, 59, also left the house in Horsham to be closer to his brother in Footscray. But unlike Mr Moss, he was given a single-bedroom unit in Brimbank within a week. ‘‘There are gaps in the system for people like me,’’ Mr Moss said. ‘‘I don’t want to be a burden on anyone. I’ve been treated like a dirty criminal for something I haven’t done.’’ Mr Moss has been unemployed for 10 years. A learning difficulty means he has been on a disability pension for 15 years. ‘‘I’d be satisfied even they put me in a bed-

former housemate would have been made the sole tenant and Mr Moss could have returned to the Horsham property.’’ She said Mr Moss was on an early priority waiting list and would be housed as soon as a property became available. Last week, the Weekly reported more than a quarter of vulnerable households who joined the public housing queue since September were from Brimbank and the north-west.

Crossing’s above politics THE federal government has promised to meet with its state counterpart in a bid to have St Albans’ deadly Main Road railway crossing removed. Federal Transport Minister Anthony Albanese, after inspecting the crossing last week, said he would sit down with state Transport Minister Terry Mulder to discuss the unfunded project. ‘‘This is obviously one of the worst in the country,’’ he said. ‘‘I know the state government made commitments about dealing with this issue prior to the last election. I’ve raised the issue myself with Mr Mulder and I want to see a solution.’’ Mr Albanese was joined by Maribyrnong Labor MP Bill Shorten, who admitted that both parties had neglected the crossing for decades. Mr Shorten said the crossing was the state government’s responsibility and at the last election both parties had pledged to take action. ‘‘But we’re still here, we’re still watching people forced to engage in a proposition of Russian roulette,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s also dreadfully economically damaging to St Albans, an area which needs all the support it can get. ‘‘Now is the time for bipartisanship, now is the time on something as important as life and death.’’ Dianne Dejanovic, whose 31-year-old son Christian was killed at the crossing last year, said people’s lives were being put at risk every day. ‘‘The thing is we need the funding, we need the state government to make a decision now,’’ she said. ‘‘Lives are at risk every day and we want the state government to step up to the mark.’’ The Baillieu government has promised to begin planning to remove the crossing in its first term. To date, no funding has been allocated. Mr Mulder said the St Albans crossing was on a government list of 12 crossings requiring removal. He said VicRoads had begun consulting with residents about the project’s design. — Melissa Cunningham

The Boral-operated quarry, on Riding Boundary Road, is being used as a landfill, providing municipal and commercial waste services to Brimbank and Melton councils. It is also used as an energy plant, generating power for 4000 homes in the north-west. Mr Mullan said he had complained to the Environment Protection Authority on January 6, 26 and 30 but was still waiting for a response. ‘‘We can’t take this smell any more,’’ he said. ‘‘On hot days and nights, when we really should be outside or having windows opened, we have been forced inside our house. It seems to be worse on hotter days when there’s a southerly wind.’’ A spokesman for Boral said there could be

A FOUL stench thought to be coming from a Deer Park quarry is forcing residents indoors. Gary Mullan and his wife Michelle, who live on The Close in Caroline Springs, said at times the smell was so pungent they had to close their doors and windows and turn off their airconditioner. ‘‘The only way I can describe the smell is that it is like rotting food,’’ Mr Mullan said. ‘‘We noticed the smell about six months ago and it has got progressively worse. ‘‘Over the Christmas period our rubbish bin wasn’t picked up for a couple of weeks and the smell is similar to that, except it’s everywhere.’’

INBRIEF

Driven indoors by quarry smell BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM

Police hunt for flasher Police are appealing for information after a man exposed himself to two teenage girls at Brimbank Park. The incident happened at 4.45pm on February 1. The girls, aged 16 and 13, were walking in in the park off Green Gully Road when they realised a man was walking behind them. Police said the girls continued walking and heard someone call out to them from behind. They turned to see the man exposing himself and moving provocatively. The man is described as being about 18-20, Caucasian with short, spiked lightbrown hair. Information to Crime Stoppers, 1800 333 000.

several possible sources of odour in the area. “We make sure our operations are conducted using equipment and practices designed to minimise the possibility of odour emission,’’ he said. “In any instance where Boral’s operations are identified as the source, we work with the EPA to address the matter promptly.’’ An EPA spokeswoman said it would investigate the stench this week. ‘‘The source of odour is unconfirmed, but recent persistent southerly winds across the surrounding residential areas may be a factor.’’ Mr Mullan said residents in his street were certain the odour was coming from the quarry. ‘‘There really is nothing else around that could be making that kind of odour.’’

Robber targets servos Police are investigating a series of armed robberies at service stations in the north-west, including one in Sydenham. Police spokeswoman Belinda Nolan said there had been five armed robberies in the north-west, Sunbury and Woodend areas since January 27. Police said the robbery at a service station on Nelson Highway and Overton Lea Boulevard in Sydenham occurred on February 7 at 11.15pm. Fawkner Embona Taskforce detectives, who are conducting the investigation, believe the same offender may be responsible for all armed robberies. He is described as Caucasian, about 180 centimetres with a solid build.

‘‘We have workshops for all the different year levels that focuses on what is relevant to them. We teach them about the importance of going to a trusted adult if they need support, and lay down the foundations for safe internet use in the older years.’’ Workshops for parents on the topic of bullying had been implemented, as had an electronic incident reporting system for staff at the school. Education Minister Martin Dixon last week announced that 90 primary schools across Victoria would for the first time be receiving welfare officers as part of a $124 million plan to stamp out bullying and violence. Western Metropolitan Liberal MP Andrew Elsbury said the government had promised to recruit 150 welfare officers by next year. Breakfast clubs and close monitoring of student attendance will be among the initiatives introduced to schools by welfare officers. Ms Puopolo will launch a breakfast program at Keilor Views.

A KEILOR primary school has welcomed funding for a welfare officer to help tackle bullying and support vulnerable families. Keilor Views principal Charles Branciforte said state government funding would allow Gloria Puopolo to concentrate on early identification of bullying, negotiate outcomes between pupils and families in conflict, offer assistance to families in financial crisis and run programs to help children experiencing grief or loss. Last year the school funded Ms Puopolo’s position through its own budget. Ms Puopolo, a teacher for more than 20 years, said her work focused on raising awareness of cyber-bullying and the dangers of the internet. ‘‘I teach strategies that build resilience in students and give them skills on how to keep safe online like keeping their profiles private and keeping their passwords secret,’’ she said.

School camps face cash crisis BY MELISSA CUNNINGHAM EXCURSIONS and school camps may have to be sponsored by welfare agencies, principals warn, following changes to a state government education allowance. From March 1, education maintenance payments will no longer be shared between schools and parents. Instead, the allowance will go directly to sole lowincome parents. One Brimbank principal, who asked to remain anonymous, said the impact on pupils could be huge. ‘‘Without the funding the school can’t afford to pay for school camps and excursions. This means we will have to rely on local welfare agencies if parents can’t afford to pay the costs. There are many children in Brimbank who are from lower socioeconomic status and this means the school may be forced to cancel some camps and excursions.’’ The principal said most parents had signed a consent form which handed over

the first half of the allowance to the school to purchase books and resources for their children. ‘‘But the school also needs the other half of the payment to fund excursions throughout the year,’’ she said. St Albans Heights Primary School principal Clayton Sturzaker said the school was explaining changes to parents. ‘‘It’s been quite confusing because we had one system which was working quite well and now we’ve had to change to a new system,’’ he said. ‘‘But regardless of the cuts, we will always endeavour to ensure our pupils are participating in as much as possible.’’ Keilor Labor MP Natalie Hutchins urged Brimbank residents to sign an online petition against the changes to education funding. Education Minister Martin Dixon has maintained additional funding will be given to schools with high numbers of disadvantaged students.

Fire message hits the bitumen METROPOLITAN Fire Brigade officers have taken to the streets of Brimbank to spread a safety message. Mobile billboards urging residents to be fire ready were pulled behind scooters for five hours near Brimbank Park last Thursday. MFB chief officer Shane Wright said the initiative was part of a campaign highlighting the region’s high fire risk, despite being an urban area. ‘‘Where there is vegetation there is a fire risk,’’ he said. ‘‘This means that the threat of fire is very real during summer.’’ The mobile billboards were driven around streets close to where more than 23 suspicious fires were lit in Brimbank Park last month. Mr Wright said residents most at risk were those with homes or workplaces backing on to bush, grassland,

Protesters picket over migrant labour BY LAURA LITTLE OUT-OF-WORK boilermakers have staged a protest against the possible use of migrant labour at City West Water’s Western Treatment Plant. A group of about 20 boilermakers have been picketing outside the Werribee sewage treatment centre since last Monday because they believe overseas workers are being employed to build a salt reduction plant at the site. Gippsland-based contractor Briagolong Engineering is building the $40 million plant to allow recycled sewage water to be used on gardens across the western suburbs. Protesters say Briagolong is employing skilled migrant labourers on a temporary basis and want the company to commit to using local workers instead. Group spokesman Nick Donohue said there were out-of-work boilerPicket line: Unemployed boilermakers protest outside the Western Treatment Plant. Picture: Cathy Jackson

makers across the western suburbs who could have benefited from being employed. ‘‘There is an abundance of skilled labourers around this area without work,’’ he said. ‘‘The work has actually dried up. The government says there is a skilled labour shortage, but there is actually a jobs shortage in Victoria.’’ Mr Donohue said he had had no work since Christmas and was employed for a couple of months last year. He’s being forced to live off his savings and says that is a situation facing skilled workers from Geelong to Dandenong. ‘‘We want companies to support local workers and local industry, but there is no work. All eyes are on this project because there are no infrastructure projects on the horizon. There were no local advertisements for this work.’’ The group is calling on City West Water to intervene. A spokesman declined to comment on the protest, directing questions to the contractor. Briagolong Engineering also declined to comment.

Mr Mulder said the terminal should take more than 700,000 trucks a year, or 2000 truck movements a day, off the traffic counts on inner-western suburban streets, and ease congestion around ports. While a direct line to the new Regional Rail Link freight line has been guaranteed, the next most obvious decision is where to develop the route for an outer-metropolitan ring road to siphon monster B-doubles and prime movers away from the housing estates of Caroline Springs, Taylors Lakes and Rockbank, while giving freight direct links to Tullamarine and Avalon airports and the Hume corridor. Laverton North-based transport and logistics company Toll said steps towards developing the Truganina terminal were the right choice for governments’ freight infrastructure dollar. But local groups protesting against truck numbers say plans to get freight transport off residential streets should be further advanced. Maribyrnong Truck Action Group president Samantha McArthur questioned how much impact the hub would have. ‘‘They expect it will take 2000 trucks off the inner-west roads a day, but what about the other 18,000 [trucks]?’’

A NEW interstate terminal to store and distribute thousands of tons of goods could be built somewhere in Truganina. But exactly where and what is meant by “an intermodal facility” are the latest big infrastructure questions for communities of Melbourne’s west. Federal Transport Minister Anthony Albanese and state Transport Minister Terry Mulder have announced a $5 million feasibility study for the Western Interstate Freight Terminal. They said the study would pinpoint the precise location of the mega-freight pitstop Melbourne needs to achieve modern-day freight logistics into and out of the container docks at Williamstown. “If given the final go-ahead, the project would build an interstate terminal and freight precinct at Truganina in Melbourne’s west as well as a link to the interstate rail freight network,’’ the ministers said in a statement. “An intermodal at Truganina would do away with the need for interstate trains and trucks to come into the port precinct.”

West may get mega-freight hub BY HELEN GRIMAUX and NICK TOSCANO

A WESTERN Health doctor is spearheading a two-year study aimed at cutting rates of cardiovascular disease. Western Health nephrologist Associate Professor Nigel Toussaint is working with Dr Genie Pedagogos of the Royal Melbourne Hospital to explore the effects of phosphate on cardiovascular health. Associate Professor Toussaint said up to half of patients with chronic kidney disease died from cardiovascular disease, and controlling phosphate may help to reduce that complication. “We need to find out more about the potential effects of phosphate on cardiovascular health,” he said. “At the moment we have no idea whether using phosphate binders or other methods to lower phosphate makes any difference to improving clinical outcomes.” Associate Professor Toussaint believes the results may be relevant to a much larger population group. “If you look at the general population and measure their phosphate levels over a period of time, those with higher phosphate levels tend to run into trouble with kidney or cardiovascular problems later on.” Some studies have suggested that high

Timeline extended on city’s blueprint BY HELEN GRIMAUX THE deadline for feedback on a state government discussion paper on its metropolitan planning strategy has been extended to March 28. The 100-page report Melbourne, let’s talk about the future was released last October to “prompt debate around the challenges and ideas for Melbourne’s future”. It warns that housing has become less affordable, pushing people further out to where there are fewer services and jobs. Planning Minister Matthew Guy has also released a meeting guide to be used as a workbook for recording communitybased discussion groups, including instructions about how to submit the information collected. Melton Council last week issued a reminder to residents about the importance of making their voices heard and becoming involved in discussions about

the city’s future. Key principles outlined in the discussion paper include: ■ What we want to achieve ■ A distinctive Melbourne ■ A globally connected and competitive city ■ Social and economic participation ■ Strong communities ■ Environmental resilience ■ What we want to change ■ A polycentric city linked to regional cities ■ Living locally – a 20-minute city ■ What we need to do to make it happen ■ Infrastructure investment that supports city growth ■ Leadership and partnership. A toolkit is available from the Plan Melbourne website at planmelbourne.vic.gov.au. Anyone planning to host a community consultation event on the discussion paper is urged to read the toolkit guide online and register with the department.

Summersault will be held on Saturday, 23 February 2013 at Town Centre Recreation Reserve, The Parade, Caroline Springs. There will also be amusements, community stalls and a range of activities concluding with a spectacular fireworks display. The Sapphires will perform the memorable tracks featured in the highly successful Australian movie of the same name. The main stage will also feature Ross Wilson and the Peaceniks, performing their classic hits. Children’s entertainers The WotWots will have young and old dancing and singing along and will be available to meet and greet their fans following their performance. In addition to the main stage entertainment, visitors can jump on a ride at the carnival, enjoy the roving entertainment and free activities including kids’ workshops and face-painting; take part in the ‘Get Activated’ activities and check out the Melton Small Business Expo.

Do you care about the local environment and enjoy coordinating small groups of volunteers? The City of Melton is looking for residents to be site coordinators for Clean Up Australia Day, on Sunday 3 March.

Summersault is an alcohol free event. For more information please visit www.melton.vic.gov.au/summersault

Local Clean Up Australia Day coordinators identify clean-up sites in their local area such as parks and along waterways. Council will provide coordinators with promotional leaflets for neighbourhood distribution, plus registration forms, collection bags and instructions. Last year, 16 sites across the municipality were cleared of litter, thanks to 25 community groups, schools, church groups, scout groups, local businesses and individuals. Participants will be treated to a free barbeque at Hannah Watts Park after the clean-up. For more information about signing up as a site coordinator or as a cleanup participant contact Council’s Waste Education Officer on 9747 7200 or register at www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au

Take advantage of At Call Hard Waste Collection Council provides a free At Call Hard Waste Collection Service to local households, in the interests of reducing waste to landfill and the risk of dumping and keeping the municipality neat and clean. A collection can be arranged by redeeming the voucher received with the first rates notice, each year. The hard waste that’s collected goes to the Melton Recycling Facility (MRF), in Ferris Road, Melton to be sorted and recycled wherever possible, and items that are good enough to go to a new home are donated to the Re-Sale Centre at the MRF.

Residents met with Councillors and staff at the budget engagement session

Meet the Mayor sessions Come along to a sausage sizzle and meet the Mayor of Melton City Council, Cr Kathy Majdlik. Your Ward Councillors will also be present. - Sunday 17 March, 12 – 2pm at Melton Civic Centre lawn, 232 High St, Melton (Community Hall in case of bad weather) - Sunday 24 March, 12 – 2pm at Caroline Springs Civic Centre lawn, Caroline Springs Boulevard (Civic Centre Library in case of bad weather) - Sunday 7 April, 12 - 2pm at Morton Homestead, Morton Boulevard, Taylors Hill Children’s entertainment provided. Please RSVP on Council’s website www.melton.vic.gov.au/meetthemayor

Remember: if you arrange an At Call Hard Waste Collection you must ensure that all the items you want picked up are contained with your property and not on the nature strip. Items placed on the nature strip will not be removed. And don’t forget, make the Melton Re-Sale Centre your first choice when it comes to getting rid of unwanted household goods in good condition (including furniture and small electrical items, but excluding whitegoods) and it’s also a great op shop.

Council keen on ‘skilling up’ city’s leaders DEER Park and St Albans residents already active in community life are being offered free leadership training by Brimbank Council. CEO Bill Jaboor said the seven-week training program aimed to support the contribution of at least 14 locals to build and strengthen their capacity to encourage others to join in municipal affairs.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for people already involved with their community to strengthen their knowledge and skills by learning and working together,” he said. Subjects covered include event planning, communication skills, conflict resolution and working with the media. “Participants will also receive information

about opportunities for community participation and leadership and then use those skills in a realistic context,’’ Mr Jaboor said. ‘‘They will be dealing with real opportunities and challenges associated with community events. ‘‘Our objective is to refresh the abilities of people who are keen to take what they’ve learned

back to their communities and spread that knowledge.” Residents must have demonstrated community involvement and be living in the Deer Park or St Albans areas. Applications close February 22. The first session will be held on March 12. The program will be repeated in Sunshine, Sydenham and Keilor later this year.

Fund helps plug education gap

School help: Les Twentyman, Alice Pung, Heath Scotland, Alan Dalton and Robert Stary.

STUDENTS struggling to stay in school have received a welcome boost with the launch of The 20th Man Fund’s annual ‘Back to School’ program. Braybrook-raised author Alice Pung, Sunshine College teacher Alan Dalton and lawyer Robert Stary spoke during an event last week to highlight the help available to students from disadvantaged families. Carlton footballer Heath Scotland also delivered a speech before donating $20,000. In its 24th year, the program will provide financial support throughout the year to help more than 300 children from 70 secondary schools and 20 tertiary institutions. Since 1989, the program has helped keep more than 8000 kids from disadvantaged backgrounds

stay in school. Ms Pung said the 20th Man Fund had helped many of her friends growing up in the western suburbs in the ’80s. Mr Twentyman said he would like to expand the program to help more children. “The problems out there are huge and outside the direct contact to the fund. We get referrals from schools, youth hostels, refugee support groups, the Department of Human Services, Centrelink, even the Salvation Army, and each year have to turn away so many due to a lack of funds,” he said. ‘‘To not be able to help so many each year is truly heartbreaking.” — Benjamin Millar

COVERSTORY

No liver, but no regrets Veteran punk rocker, leading music journalist and social welfare worker Paul Stewart has always lived life to the fullest, writes Robert Fedele

Social welfare is a far cry from his heady days as a punk rocker, but it’s a role which he seems to enjoy as much, if not more. It’s hard to know where to begin when chatting to Stewart about his decorated life, which has also included working as a journalist at the Herald Sun for 30 years and ongoing community work in East Timor. The 52-year-old grew up in St Kilda and wasn’t particularly into music until he went to RMIT university. His first girlfriend was an alternative

One of this Council’s first priorities is the development of the Council Plan which will outline the City’s vision, goals and direction for the next four years. As many of you would be aware, Melton’s population is currently growing at around 5.6% per year which means that approximately 6,000 new residents are moving into the municipality each year and our population is set to reach 241,000 by 2031. Growth of this magnitude calls for careful consideration and planning to deliver the appropriate infrastructure and services required for our community to prosper. In laying down the groundwork for the future of our community, we experience challenges in planning

for the natural environment, economy, our rural and small township communities, our established (and establishing) urban communities, and for our future communities which will be developed over the next thirty years, and beyond. The Council Plan seeks to provide a solid framework that provides for today, but which also has the future firmly in mind. In preparation of our Council Plan we have been identifying key issues, trends and ultimately, themes that we need to address between 2013-2017 and into the future, focussing on the strengths, challenges and opportunities to the City and our community, and how

was the beginning of a notable career. ‘‘That led to about 1500 gigs, seven albums, and tours of New York, Canada and New Zealand a couple of times,’’ Stewart says. ‘‘We got to support people like Midnight Oil and The Monkees and Iggy Pop and Billy Idol. It was awesome.’’ Today, Stewart, of Newport, is sitting at a table at the Brosnan Centre in Brunswick, run by Jesuit Social Services, where he works as a project officer. The long dark hair of his youth is sprinkled with salt and pepper, but the cheeky grin and optimism remains.

we can shape our future strategies and plans to ensure that we create environments that foster health and wellbeing within the City. There will be more formal opportunities for you to provide input into what you would like to see included in the Council Plan over the next few months, but in the meantime I encourage you to come along and meet with myself and your Ward Councillors at our Meet the Mayor sessions and let us know your vision for the future of our municipality and any other issues of concern.

t was supposed to be their only gig. A hits and giggles ‘benefit’ to pay off a friend’s parking fine. They had called themselves Painters and Dockers, in honour of the notorious union which called the Port Melbourne pub they were playing at home. Paul Stewart was meant to play trumpet on one song but was somehow roped into taking the reins as lead singer. The earsplitting music filled the room to the brim. And then it all went pear-shaped. ‘‘The neighbour hated us so much he jumped the fence’’ – Stewart stops midsentence to assure me of the veracity of his anecdote – “with an axe and chopped up the mixing desk because he hated the music so much. ‘‘Someone rang the cops. The police arrived at the pub. They tried to get in. The real Painters and Dockers said no. An all-in brawl broke out between the police and Dockers. ‘‘The kids who were there to see us were screaming and going berserk. Things were flying. People were getting smashed. People were laughing hysterically. And I looked around and thought, ‘I want to do this for the rest of my life’.’’ For the Dockers, the musical kind, it


Journalism and Stewart’s eternal link with East Timor and helping its people will always be intertwined. He started off as a copy boy at the Sun News-Pictorial in 1979. For the first few years he wrote about the price of granny smith apples and was then placed on the horse racing round. At one stage he sat between fellow cadets Mark Trevorrow, now a comedian best known for his flamboyant alter ego Bob Down, and (now comedian) Wendy Harmer. It took him almost a decade to be promoted to the role of music journalist. Looking back, Stewart is under no illusions about his foot in the door. He says he never would have landed the job if it hadn’t been for ‘‘Balibo’’. ‘‘I can remember I went into the job interview and the guy wasn’t even listening to me. And he’s like, ‘Why do you want to

Watts Ward with Cr Lara Carli

be a journo?’. And I was like, ‘Because my brother was one’. And he said, ‘Who was your brother?’ and I said, ‘Oh, well, he was Tony Stewart, one of the guys killed up in East Timor’. And he went, ‘Shit’!’’ Stewart was a teenager when his brother was one of five journalists who were killed while reporting on activities just prior to the Indonesian invasion of East Timor in 1975. ‘‘I didn’t know where East Timor was. I had no idea. I can remember walking past the Malvern train station and there was a banner saying that five journos were missing. I ran all the way home and mum was there with my aunties bawling their eyes out. It shocked me. I can remember thinking life is really short.’’ Stewart was close to his older brother and the tragedy has never left him, partly due to his own grief and more so because of people’s ceaseless interest.

The Dockers gave him a chance to rebel. ‘‘That’s why punk rock was such a great outlet because I got to scream and go berserk and people paid me.’’ Stewart ‘‘lucked in’’ at the Sun when a former editor decided to revamp the newspaper by including a music section and chose Stewart, who was sporting pink hair at the time and was well and truly entrenched in the Dockers, as its writer and columnist. Some of his more notable stories along the way included interviews with Keith Richards and Stevie Wonder. ‘‘It was like hand in glove.” Stewart recalls. “I got heaps of great stories.” ‘‘Guys in bands would talk to me and tell me stuff off the record that was interesting.’’ Stewart continued his double life as a journo/punk rocker with much success. He says journos of the day were just as bad as musicians, recalling colleagues writing while guzzling long-neck bottles of beer and sucking fags. ‘‘But their copy was always pristine.’’ Stewart took three years off in the mid-’80s to perform with the Dockers full-time, playing 250 gigs a year in towns across the country.

‘‘It was sort of the golden age of pub rock in Australia. There were big beer barns and people would go and see Australian bands.’’ By 1997, he says, the Dockers had run their course. He went on to form the Dili Allstars, a reggae and soul outfit which included some blokes from the Dockers and some musicians from East Timor. “It’s good for old blokes now,” says Stewart, who believes being a Docker worked better when he was young and had a healthy liver. Which brings us around to Stewart’s story of survival and his own brush with death. It’s one you feel he’s told a million times. In 2007, he underwent a liver transplant, no doubt triggered by a life of excess and years of heavy drinking, but not before he well and truly thought his time was up. Stewart was on a waiting list for a liver transplant for 18 months and had almost given up hope. ‘‘Oh, look, the priest came and did the last rights. I honestly thought my days were numbered.’’ He tells a story about a nun who came to visit him on his death bed at the Austin Hospital, a woman he got talking to. He discovered she was from East Timor, a coincidence that made him laugh at the time. He explained his connection with the country and spoke of the Dili Allstars, whom the nun knew of courtesy of the band raising money that went to donating food to her village. The pair continued chatting and the nun promised to find Stewart a liver through prayer, but only if he agreed to help out the kids in Timor in return. Two days later a donor arrived out of the blue. ‘‘People know me and they go, ‘Paulie, you’re full of shit, mate. That is just a coincidence’. And I say to them, ‘You weren’t

It’s all extra time for me. This is time I shouldn’t have had.’’ Another band came out of it, too: The Transplants, all of whose members have undergone a liver transplant. Derryn Hinch even came on board to sing. ‘‘Somebody said, ‘Can he sing?’ And I said, ‘Does it matter?’.’’ Stewart kept his end of the bargain, forming an ongoing link to help out disadvantaged children in East Timor. In 2009, he organised an appeal to buy the nuns a van to get around. His friends The Wiggles donated thousands of pairs of Dorothy the Dinosaur boots for him to take over. Late last year he visited the country for the 13th time, his present project is to build a school for the children. It’s three-quarters of the way done. ‘‘Every time I go up there it’s like this is the last time and then some little Timorese person will give you a smile and it gets you back in. ‘‘I’m in a lucky position. Because of my brother and the Dockers, I can draw attention to East Timor. ‘‘And the other day it sort of hit me and I thought, hang on. In the ’80s it was sex, drugs and rock ‘n’roll.

lass with blue hair and he followed her along to see bands. It was t here at gigs that he met the quintet of lads who would become Painters and Dockers, an irreverent punk rock band formed in the early ’80s and known for such hits as Nude School and Die Yuppie Die. Stewart describes the band, which was inducted into the EG Hall of Fame in 2009, as ‘‘unique’’ and ‘‘individual’’, neither champions of the underground nor the mainstream. ‘‘We weren’t part of any scene really. We took the piss out of everybody and had lots of fun.’’ They were signed to Mushroom Records and Nude School was perhaps their biggest hit. The video clip was shot at a pig farm with band members naked and their bits covered up by pigs’ feet. Stewart says the band ‘‘lucked in’’ with MTV launching in Australia around the same time on a Friday night. ‘‘For the first three weeks the first song they played was Nude School by the Painters and Dockers because the clip was so wacky. ‘‘It ended up being an albatross because it was so popular and people wanted more stuff like that, novelty songs.’’

That’s one of the greatest parts of the job: no two days are ever the same.’’ Dalgleish, 38, joined the SES in 1990 as a fresh-faced 16-year-old, eager to obtain his Queen’s Scout

‘It was extremely rewarding being able to help the people in my own community when they were in need’ badge. As a Brimbank SES volunteer he was soon able to gain the hours of community service needed for the honour. But the experience also inspired him to become a leader in his community and continue to help others. In the past 21 years, he has travelled Australia for this cause. He cites the Black Saturday bushfires, Queensland floods and the 2011 Christmas Day hail storms in the north-west among his most memorable call-outs.

During the Christmas Day storms he led a team of more than 400 volunteers. ‘‘We had more than 1800 calls within a few hours,’’ Dalgleish says. ‘‘We also had hundred of volunteers responding to all kinds of incidents over the week following Christmas. It was extremely rewarding being able to help people in my own community.’’ Last year, Dalgleish was awarded an emergency service medal in the Queen’s Birthday honours and he received a long-service award from the SES. In light of recent fires deliberately lit in Brimbank Park, Dalgleish warns residents to remain vigilant as the hottest month of the year begins. ‘‘We may be urban, but we do have rural areas and grassfires can have a huge impact on the community.’’ To become an SES volunteer, visit ses.vic.gov.au/volunteer

The pride of its street Open-plan living and an internal-access garage make for ease and convenience, writes Rebecca Miller urrounded by established homes, this contemporary townhouse, with its modern facade and low-maintenance gardens, is the shining star on the street. Pebbles, yuccas and ferns decorate the front yard, while the back is predominantly paved, including an undercover entertainment area with roller door. A separate garage has internal access and remote-controlled door, while an additional car space is provided. Inside, there’s plenty of room for the family. Downstairs there is an open study, spacious living-dining area and two-pack kitchen with

The main bedroom has a large walk-in wardrobe and en suite with twin-basin vanity unit, and for people who love to sing in the shower a built-in radio and speakers is sure to impress.

The remaining bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The townhouse also has plenty of storage with built-in wardrobes in the retreat area, powder room and under the stairs. Neutral tones throughout allow the new owners to add their own splashes of colour and personality.

TIMEOUT

A bit too heavy on the cheese A secret squad takes on the LA mob, writes Myke Bartlett he good guys get nasty in this colourful tale of Los Angeles gangsters and tough-nosed cops. Ruben (Zombieland) Fleischer’s crime drama sees Josh Brolin as the last good cop in town, recruiting a secret squad to stop the mafia by any means necessary. Top of their hit list is Sean Penn’s mafia boss, who has most of LA on payroll. To bring him down, the squad will steal, spy, and blow up many things. Those expecting another L.A. Confidential will be disappointed. While there are nods to film noir greats, Fleischer’s approach is far more cartoonish. The violence is extreme but garish, the cinematography is primary colours and sharp shadows,

T

GANGSTER SQUAD (MA15+) Stars: Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone Director: Ruben Fleischer

and the characters are paper thin. We’re in for a romp, not a tragedy. Penn gorges on a cheesy script, more Dr Evil than Don Corleone. Brolin is an admirable lead, but the cinematic charisma comes from Ryan Gosling as his dubious wingman and Emma Stone as Penn’s etiquette instructor, although,sadly, her character’s defining quality appears to be that she’s played by Emma Stone. Surprisingly lightweight given its topic, Gangster Squad is rarely gritty but frequently good, pulpy fun.

CAREERS

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

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.

SPORT ●

SPORT suffered a body blow last week at the hands of an Australian Crime Commission report into wrongdoing at the professional level. Sure, it is an issue to do with sport in the upper echelon, but the negative mood reached anyone with a sporting bone in their body. Locals did not have to wait too long for a much-needed pick-me-up. Sportsmen and sportswomen of the west lifted the cloud by doing what they do every weekend, returning to the field for the mere love of the game. At Kings Park Reserve, St Albans and Seddon — two clubs battling it out for a finals berth in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association north A1 — gave their supporters a reminder of why sport is so great on Saturday with an intriguing opening day of a twoday game. ‘‘It was just a good battle today,’’ Saints skipper Andrew Pizaro told the Weekly at stumps. This match represents a summer for the Saints — a matter of do-or-die when it comes to their finals aspirations. ‘‘This game is really like a semifinal for us,’’ Pizaro said. ‘‘If we can finish this one off, it really sets us up well to win the last game to make the finals.’’ So far, so good for the Saints, who took the day one honours, but not before they had to fight their way back from a tough position in the lead up to

SCOREBOARD Senior division: Greenvale 0-2 v Keilor 183 (J Brown 3-71 T Moughanie 2-11 C Jayasinghe 2-30 C Darshana 2-54) North division: Youlden Parkville 4-89 (LC Wilson 3-34) v Sunshine Druids 145 (J Rudd 48 I Gallage 29) North A1: St Albans 0-47 v Seddon 172 (A Pizaro 6-38 SM Jones 4-36); Sunshine United 2-39 (L Lewis 2-14) v Altona Roosters 169 (D Pham 45no A Peters 33); Taylors Lakes 186 (I Yaddehige 5-42 M Simpson 3-21) v Aberfeldie Park 2-21 West B1: Avondale Heights 7-207 (B Whale 109no M Singh 32no) v Sunshine Heights; Sunshine YCW 0-18 v Barkly Street Uniting 178

the tea break. They eventually worked through a tough period to bowl out Seddon for 172. An almighty effort from the Saints, considering the visitors were 1-110 at one stage. ‘‘We toiled hard,’’ Pizaro said. ‘‘They’ve got a very good batting team, an extremely good top five and a couple of blokes who are all right in their lower order. ‘‘After tea, we got two or three quick wickets, and suddenly we started to get on top, and then we picked up the next three or four. It was a good fight back from the boys.’’ Pizaro, a former district cricketer with Footscray Edgewater and North Melbourne, bagged six wickets. Shane Jones, a right-arm off-spinner also with district credentials, claimed the other four scalps. Pizaro pointed to a new age prob-

batsmen go out and block all day. ‘‘It just doesn’t happen any more, batsmen want to score runs and don’t have the patience they used to.’’ The Saints, 0-47 in reply at stumps, hope their own willow wielders have enough patience to stick it out for the 126 required for victory.

Western Jets optimistic the year will be good BY LANCE JENKINSON WESTERN Jets region manager Shane Sexton has been involved with the TAC Cup for too long to be lured into attempting crystal ball predictions for his teams. The wider view is the Jets will have a successful season under new coach Torin Baker and with the deepest playing list in the club’s 21-year history. Sexton said it would be impossible to give a ballpark estimation of where the Jets could finish until seeing the talent stocks of other clubs. ‘‘We think whatever happens this year, we’re going to have a good year,’’ he said. ‘‘Whether that equates to playing in finals or winning half of our games or most of our games, we don’t know that yet because it’s a very good competition and every time you play, you play against a direct opponent that’s very good and you play against a team that’s very good.’’

[ 30 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

No doubt the Jets are better placed than any other time in Sexton’s 13-year tenure with the western suburbs’ elite under-18 club. Not since the club had access to parts of the north-west region before the inclusion of the Calder Cannons have the Jets enjoyed a deeper talent pool to choose from. The club will finalise its roster in the coming weeks and has indicated that it will provide a pathway for more players than ever before. ‘‘There’s no doubt that our depth of talent is growing year by year,’’ Sexton said. ‘‘We think this time around, we’ll probably pick a bigger squad, because of the depth of talent. ‘‘Years gone by we might have picked mid- to high-40s in terms of player numbers; this year we might pick well in excess of 50 kids and it could be 54 or 55. I’m more than happy to say the depth of talent now is far greater than what it was.’’ The Jets are benefiting from a boom in growth of

the western suburbs. Parts of the west that Sexton drove freely around a decade ago are now built up. Other parcels of land are on the verge of development. It is a bonanza for the Jets, who have done it tough since the arrival of the Cannons. ‘‘Without a doubt, the region is growing, you’ve only got to go out in the west these days through the growth corridor and you can see the growth,’’ he said. ‘‘When I first got here, you got past Deer Park and basically there wasn’t anything, and it wasn’t that long ago, now you go out there and you’ve got Caroline Springs, Taylors Hill, Burnside, etc. ‘‘You go out to Melton and you’ve got Eynesbury and a huge development there, same thing at Werribee, out at Wyndhamvale, Manor Lakes and Tarneit, and Point Cook was really just in its infancy when I came out here as well and, gee, it’s a long way down the track now Point Cook. ‘‘That’s all happened in the last 10 years.’’

SUNSHINE feared that its low score would count against it on day two of its clash with Brighton in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association at Brighton Beach Oval on Saturday. The fears of the bottom-of-theladder Crows were realised as the home side cruised to a five-wicket first innings victory. Set 181 to win, Brighton started the day on 1-38, and quickly found its groove to pass the total with 5-228 before the declaration, a lead of 48. The Crows were undermanned with opening bowler Andrew Webb unavailable. James Leach, a young up-andcomer, performed admirably with the ball, taking 2-50 off 13 overs. Laka Khan, Ben Bonavia and Justin Summerfield snared a wicket each. The Crows flicked into damage limitation mode in the last 16 overs of the day. Despite some hairy moments, they managed to avoid an outright defeat to finish with 5-48. They still, however, remain rooted to the bottom with just one win for the summer. The Crows will see their two-day meeting with Malvern starting on Saturday at Demptster Park as a genuine opportunity to pick up a second win.

A Gift for town THE Keilor Gift remains one of the main lead-up races to the Stawell Gift. The best sprinters from the Victorian Athletic League will converge on Keilor Recreation Reserve for what is forecast to be a scorching Saturday. The defending champion of the 120-metre Gift is Andrew Robinson, while the women’s 120-metre race holder is Bridget Oakley. This year’s instalment will hold extra significance for the local area. Keilor’s township is celebrating its 150th year and the Gift will be the centrepiece to the big occasion. The action begins at 12.30pm with 11 races on the card.

Leagues given weapons to catch cheats BY ROY WARD LOCAL football leagues will this season be able to request drug tests for players suspected of using performance-enhancing drugs. The tests, which would be done by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority, were made available to leagues at an AFL conference with community football administrators last October. State grade and suburban footballers play under the AFL’s Anti-Doping Code and the ASADA could be called in or arrive at random to test at the local level. The Australian Crime Commission released an interim report about crime in sport on Thursday which stated performance-enhancing drug use, organised crime connections and the grooming of players for match-fixing were a problem at elite level, while at ‘‘sub-elite’’ level the report expressed concerns about players accessing PEDs and other substances online and using them during training. In a statement on its website, AFL Victoria confirmed that suburban, TAC Cup and VFL

footballers can be randomly tested: ‘‘Community football players can also be tested by ASADA as the competitions in which they play are operated and managed under the Laws of Australian Football. ‘‘At last year’s conference with many of the state’s community football league managers, AFL Victoria had a representative from ASADA attend from Canberra to help educate leagues in the area of anti-doping and performance enhancing products. ‘‘More broadly, an education resource is currently being developed for community leagues to pass on to clubs and their players. ‘‘The strong message is that all players should check whether commercially available products they chose to source contravene the AFL Anti Doping Code prior to purchasing or receiving them.’’

Closer eye on rugby staff

Drug use likely at higher level, says rugby league

BY LANCE JENKINSON

CLUB rugby in Victoria will monitor support staff within its clubs more closely in the aftermath of revelations that performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) have infiltrated Australian sport at the top level. The Victorian Rugby Union, governing body of community rugby in this state, wants to ensure the use of PEDs does not filter down to the club level or its representative teams. VRU community rugby manager Charlie Bamford plans to meet club officials in the leadup to the season to discuss clubs putting their medical staff on a register that the VRU can access easily. ‘‘Given the recent reports that have been tabled, this will be a topic of discussion and we will be placing an emphasis on the clubs to ensure they are exercising their duty of care in these areas,’’ he told the Weekly. ‘‘We will be asking them to – with the issues we’ve faced in the last week – register all their medical people so that we are across that.’’ The VRU is adamant that PED use is not an issue at club rugby level. There are strict guidelines in place that players and clubs must adhere to when it comes to the use of banned substances. ‘‘I honestly don’t think it’s [PEDs] a problem in Victoria [rugby] at all,’’ Bamford said. ‘‘There’s always players that look for supplements to improve themselves. Providing those supplements are not on any banned list, good luck to them.

ERADICATING, or even detecting, the use of illicit or performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) at a grassroots level of sport is no mean feat, according to Victorian Rugby League general manager Brent Silva. The VRL was alarmed at Australian Crime Commission (ACC) findings last week of widespread use of PEDs in Australian professional sport, but Silva was confident use of illegal substances to improve performance was not an issue in community rugby league in Victoria. ‘‘It’s always concerning when you have stories around sport that is not positive,’’ he said. ‘‘In terms of performance-enhancing products, you’re more likely to get it at the higher level, where players are on the fringe and trying to make a living out of the game. ‘‘At the higher level, when you’re trying to earn a contract, where it could be the difference between $50,000 a year contract and a $200,000 a year contract, there is an incentive.’’ When a player or an official joins a local club, they sign a document stating they will abide by the VRL’s rules and regulations. That also means they will adhere to the Australian Sports AntiDoping Authority (ASADA) code. Take an illegal substance while on duty in the VRL and you could find yourself with a lengthy ban from the sport if detected. The problem for the VRL and its clubs is that ASADA rarely, if ever, turns up on their doorstep. ‘‘Even at our level, we come under the WADA [World Anti-Doping Agency] code, but ASADA

How Ron Tandberg saw the issue in The Age ‘‘We’ve had no recorded cases of that.’’ The VRU, as an off-shoot of the Australian Rugby Union, performs under the guidelines of the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA). The players at all local clubs have to abide by ASADA rules and could be tested for performance-enhancing or illicit drugs at any time. Bamford admitted that VRU players are tested rarely, if at all. But, he reiterated, testers could turn up tomorrow at a local club in pre-season or in-season. ‘‘ASADA guys can turn up at changerooms, show their badges and perform tests at any time. They can select a player if they like, they can even do a random draw. ‘‘The clubs are aware of that, they quite understand that and it can happen. ‘‘They have to be aware that that’s the situation and they need to ensure they are monitoring their players and monitoring their medical and fitness staff to ensure these things are observed.’’

generally don’t test at the community level,’’ Silva said. ‘‘So, you’re not tested for that sort of thing.’’ The VRL does not have the man power, funds or the jurisdiction to support or weed out users on their own volition. Unlike NRL clubs, the VRL clubs do not employ players, nor do they have contracts in place to tear up in the event of behaviour matters. In essence, their hands are tied. ‘‘We have no responsibility in people’s private lives, whereas at the elite level, there are contracts players sign saying I agree to these policies, which means I won’t behave this way in my personal life,’’ Silva said. The bigger issue for local clubs, according to Silva, is the use of illicit drugs. This, he says, is a society-wide problem with no quick fix. ‘‘At the local level, I guess the pressures are different to an elite athlete, it’s more about societal pressures,’’ he said. ‘‘That would happen with any sort of community group whether it’s the office place or elsewhere in society where you might have those societal pressures. ‘‘The NRL have now got a program in place within community clubs to educate about safe partying practices to assist clubs when they’re organising functions and events, and part of that would be around how the clubs can educate their members about what is acceptable behaviour. ‘‘I’m proud of our clubs and their record to date in terms of their behaviour and the way they engage with the local community and trying to encourage positive and healthy living through playing sport and playing rugby league.’’
