Abiding memories for a community

OUR COVER: Western Jets’ best and fairest Josh Bench is chasing his AFL dream. Story: 16-17 Picture: Ari Hatzis

hile a new team has been announced at local government level, it was our federal leader causing a stir recently. Julia Gillard was the guest of honour at Mambourin’s DisabiliTea, one of many national events held to support the long-awaited National Disability Insurance Scheme. The Mambourin community, adults with mental and physical disabilities who attend a range of innovative day programs, turned out in force to welcome her. And like any family getting together in celebration, they’re a rowdy bunch. One man repeatedly hides behind bushes, before running off around the duck pond to lie on the sun-warmed grass wearing a huge smile. Another shakes people’s hands, over and over, while excitedly discussing the Western Bulldogs’ chances of taking the flag in 2013. A young woman behind the counter at the little cafe adjusts her apron, arranging and rearranging plates of cakes so they look their best for the PM. The woman’s mother, a well-dressed lady in a red hat and blazer, gets a little teary as the Mambourin choir start to sing the Bruno Mars song Just The Way You Are. “That’s perfect”, she says. “They are all amazing just the way they are.” As the PM and her entourage sweep into Mambourin gardens, the noise and excitement goes up a notch. As Mambourin’s patron, she’s visited this lovely spot on Ballan Road in Werribee many times. She eats cake and drinks coffee, poses for happy snaps, gives a short speech and views the rose that will be planted in honour of her late father. Then she’s gone, almost as quickly as she arrived. But behind her are happy smiles and lasting memories for this warm and caring community of people of all abilities.

Itching for the big day Former Melbourne Cup winner Americain was put through his paces at Werribee Racing Club last week as part of final preparations for this year’s big race. The 2010 winner and other international horses have been at the club’s quarantine centre since the start of the racing season. They took to the track on Thursday and Friday to ensure they were in top condition ahead of yesterday’s race. The club also hosted a breakfast with the stars on Thursday, allowing racing enthusiasts to get close to some of the cup’s star horses and jockeys. More pictures at wyndhamweekly.com.au

Bus subsidy cuts leave students stranded BY LAURA LITTLE PARENTS of new students attending schools in parts of Wyndham will be unable to access a transport subsidy from next year. Under changes to a conveyance allowance received by students who rely on private buses or cars to get to school, eligibility boundaries will reflect alterations to the urban growth boundary. Students attending private and government schools in Tarneit, Truganina, Point Cook, Hoppers Crossing and Werribee will miss out on

the subsidy. Those living in Williams Landing, Little River and Laverton North remain eligible, as their suburbs are deemed to have inadequate public transport options. Students whose parents hold a veterans affairs gold card, health care card or pension card will continue to receive the allowance regardless of where they live. Education Minister Martin Dixon said the changes would make the system fairer. ‘‘While parents have the primary responsibility of transporting their children to and from school,

the conveyance allowance is about providing targeted additional support to families in most need. The changes mean the conveyance allowance will more accurately reflect public transport availability and a family’s financial situation.’’ But Wyndham principals disagree. At Westbourne Grammar School, 857 students who rely on private buses to get to and from school will be affected. Principal Meg Hansen said public transport was not an option for many students, with the school serviced by one public bus that went to

Laverton station every 45 minutes. As reported by the Weekly, students at Suzanne Cory and Tarneit Senior College struggle to catch public transport to school. Suzanne Cory students are forced to walk from Hoppers Crossing station because the only public bus to the school runs at 40-minute intervals. For Tarneit students, there is no bus stop nearby to get to school. Independent Schools Victoria chief executive Michelle Green said poor public transport in growth corridors would make it difficult for students and could lead to reduced enrolments.

Poll results make voters spit the dummy

Cr Khan denied he had used dummy candidates but admitted using five running mates to gain sufficient preferences to be elected. He said the voting system made preferences essential. Cr Gupta said he had made it clear he was running with other candidates who were standing for fairer rates. ‘‘I have evidence we ran a very fair and honest campaign and we made it clear we were a team. ‘‘I think preferences are the way to go. I think if we removed preferences people would not get enough votes and still get elected with 1600 votes.’’ Altona Liberal branch chairman Randal Killip, who managed three candidates in the Wyndham election,

Werribee’s Michael Young is calling on residents to share their concerns. Mr Young said he was distressed that Cr Gautam Gupta, who received the 13th highest primary vote out of 19 Chaffey ward candidates, could be elected. Preference distribution led to Cr Gupta finishing in second, eliminating former mayor Kim McAliney and Greens candidate Bro Sheffield-Brotherton.

‘The VEC needs . . . to put in place real solutions, otherwise the council election process will become a farce’

EX6119321-a13Oct

THE Victorian Electoral Commission is being urged to make changes to council elections to limit the possible use of ‘dummy’ candidates. Four Wyndham candidates relied on preferences to win a position on council, amid claims that some of the 46 nominees had no intention of taking up a seat. Harrison ward’s Intaj Khan received 5.4 per cent of primary votes, with 1281 of 23,617, while Chaffey’s Gautam Gupta received 902 primary votes (3.4 per cent).

claimed the result was not representative of ratepayers’ voting. He said it was unfair that someone could be elected with so few votes, when other candidates who received more than 8 per cent of the primary vote were eliminated. Mr Killip called on the VEC either to increase the nomination fee to deter ‘dummy candidates’ from nominating, change the voting system to ‘first past the post’, or provide more information about candidates on ballot papers. He warned that if changes were not made, every candidate at the next election would use ‘dummies’. ‘‘Having candidates stand in name only to ensure preferences slide your way will only lead to more dummy candidates running, more confusing ballots, and will ultimately lead to runners in each ward exceeding 40 plus, diluting the vote and effectively creating a chook raffle scenario of who gets elected. ‘‘The VEC needs to investigate the level of dummy runners and put in place real solutions, otherwise the council election process will become a farce.’’ Municipal Association of Victoria chief executive Rob Spence also called for a statewide review, saying many voters did not know enough about the people they were electing. He said a record number of candidates had made it difficult for voters to scrutinise them, which in turn led to a high number of informal votes. In Wyndham, 7 per cent of votes cast were informal. Of registered voters, 67 per cent voted.

Gap in higher schooling stays open BY NICK TOSCANO FEWER Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Wyndham are completing year 12 and undertaking higher study than the wider population. New census data released last week reveals 29.5 per cent of Wyndham’s indigenous residents aged over 15 no longer in school had completed year 12, compared to 54 per cent of nonindigenous Australians. Of Wyndham’s 222 indigenous young people aged 15-24, 39 per cent were in education including high school, university and technical training institutes. More than half of the region’s non-indigenous residents of the same age were in education. When federal ‘Closing the Gap’ targets were launched in 2006, nationwide figures showed that 47.4 per cent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people had completed year 12 or equivalent, or higher study. New figures show an improvement, with the rate climbing to 51.6 per cent of all indigenous 15-24-year-olds compared to 84.9 per cent of all Australians, but remain behind the 2020 target. Kangan Institute has 200 indigenous students enrolled in training and higher study, many of

whom live in the west. Indigenous Education Centre manager Linc Yow Yeh said the aim of the centre, which opened in 2004, was to improve the standards of vocational education and training delivery to indigenous communities. ‘‘The government’s initiatives to close the gap have seen some positive results but it needs to remain a continual focus of the government . . . to ensure greater outcomes than what has been achieved thus far.’’ In the workforce, 88 per cent of Wyndham’s adult Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population is employed, compared to 93 per cent of non-indigenous residents. Median wages for Wyndham’s indigenous residents was $494 a week, $142 a week lower than the wider population. The chairwoman of a federal governmentappointed review of indigenous higher education access, Professor Larissa Behrendt, said the gap would be closed only when indigenous people were empowered to find solutions themselves. ‘‘We aren’t going to move those statistics without the emergence of a class of professional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and professions with people trained to deal with the specific needs of Aboriginal communities.’’

Working longer, but earning less BY LAURA LITTLE WYNDHAM residents are working longer hours but earning less money than they were four years ago, new figures reveal. Census data released last week shows almost half of Wyndham’s fulltime workers are putting in more than 40 hours a week at work, up from about 25 per cent in 2006. The statistics also showed the municipality’s average weekly income for a single person was $635 in August 2011, up from $516 in 2006. The average weekly household income was $1147 last year, down from $1556 in 2006. The census also revealed an increase in unemployment, with the number of residents without jobs rising from 5.4 per cent four years ago to 6.3 per cent. The state jobless rate was 5.4 per cent. Job agencies blamed the increase on

Wyndham’s reliance on manufacturing and retail. WISE Employment’s Richard Verhagen said inadequate public transport also contributed to the high unemployment rate, with job seekers struggling to get to interviews and jobs outside of the municipality. According to the census, 72 per cent of Wyndham residents travel to work by car, with only 5.3 per cent taking the train. Werribee’s Anna Dooland said that although she lived close to a train station and wanted to look after the environment by taking public transport, she found the service too unreliable. In the past three weeks, Ms Dooland caught four trains from the city to Werribee and all were replaced by buses. She said what was usually a 42-minute train trip turned into one hour and 35 minutes on a bus.

No coincidence: poorer suburbs, higher losses BY NICK TOSCANO and BENJAMIN MILLAR A NEW study on gambling has confirmed a well-known fact — pokies losses are far higher in disadvantaged areas than wealthier communities. The academic report reveals losses are closely tied with disadvantage and proves a link between high numbers of machines in suburbs like Hoppers Crossing and higher rates of loss. The report, Modelling Vulnerability to Gambling-Related Harm: How Disadvantage Predicts Gambling Losses, recommends tightening rules around pokies to protect vulnerable areas. Co-author Charles Livingstone, of Monash University, said residents in the poorest areas were losing an average of $849 per adult each year compared with $298 in the most advantaged areas. Dr Livingstone said the latest study

broke down losses to a more detailed level than previous studies, which tended to focus on local government areas. “This is further evidence of the need for local decisions around this.” Councils and social services groups are calling for improvements to the regulatory system to give local government more say in decisions on the location and number of gaming machines. As reported by the Weekly in August, Wyndham Council has fought five pokies applications at the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation in the past two years, costing ratepayers a total of $75,000. It adopted a two-year responsible gambling strategy in July, including an action plan of local research and education programs. The strategy states Wyndham will not support future pokies applications on property

owned or controlled by the council and will consider applying higher rates to venues. VCGLR data shows Wyndham’s gamblers lost $88.5 million in 2011-12. Werribee Plaza Tavern’s 80-machine venue recorded the second-highest losses in the state ($21 million), more than $260,000 on each machine. HealthWest project manager James Dunne said the trend of increasing losses across many western suburbs meant problem gambling was on the rise. ‘‘These people might not be defined as problem gamblers but are still likely to be experiencing many of the negative impacts of problem gambling, such as financial troubles, anxiety, stress and relationship issues.’’ He said pokies losses and an overrepresentation of venues were being felt in poorer suburbs that could least afford them.

New councillors tight-lipped on top job BY LAURA LITTLE UNCERTAINTY surrounded the election of Wyndham’s mayor on Monday night, with only one candidate publicly declaring her intention to nominate for the role. The results were not known before the Weekly went to print, but it is understood Crs Adele

Hegedich and Heather Marcus were nominating for the position. Cr Hegedich told the Weekly she would put her hand up to be mayor, saying she only made her decision in recent days. Cr Marcus refused to comment, but sources said she was a candidate for the position. Of the remaining nine councillors, seven said

they were not interested in being mayor this year. Five-time mayor Shane Bourke and Harrison ward’s Cr Glenn Goodfellow said other commitments meant they could not dedicate the time to being mayor. Newcomers Peter Gibbons, Intaj Khan, Gautam Gupta and Peter Maynard said they did not have enough experience and wanted to use

this year to learn more about being on council. Cr Marie Brittan, returning to the council after a three-year absence, said she was yet to make a decision. Cr Bob Fairclough refused to comment. The Weekly was unable to contact Cr John Gibbons. Web updates: wyndhamweekly.com.au

Melon’s bark no match for snake’s bite

Snake bite: Melon gets a check-up from Dr Mark Davis.

Picture: Pat Scala

PET owners are being urged to keep an eye out for snakes as the temperature rises. Warmer weather has brought snakes out of hibernation and vets at Melbourne University’s Veterinary Hospital at Werribee have reported a spike in the number of dogs being bitten. ‘‘Snakes are . . . becoming active in the afternoon and early evening, which is when they may come into contact with pets,’’ Dr Mark Davis said. Maree Smith, whose Staffordshire terrier Melon was recently treated at the hospital after being bitten by a snake, said it was important to watch dogs closely. She said Melon was playing in her backyard when she heard an unusual bark. When Mrs Smith went

outside, she found Melon had attacked a snake. Melon was rushed to the vet hospital, where he stopped breathing, and required antivenom, resuscitation and life support for three days. Dr Davis said people could reduce the risk of encountering snakes by clearing piles of rubbish and cutting long grass in backyards. Owners should also ensure their dogs avoid waterways and remain in sight during walks. He said tiger snakes were the most common snake species in the western suburbs. ‘‘If bitten, pets need to be kept as still as possible, not walked, and taken straight to a vet. Owners should call ahead to their vet so that they can prepare treatment such as antivenom.’’ — Laura Little

Jobs central: commitment to hub BY NICK TOSCANO PLANNING Minister Matthew Guy has reaffirmed his commitment to an employment precinct in Werribee following the launch of a plan to ensure all Melbourne suburbs are within a short commute of jobs and services. In a new state government discussion paper, Melbourne, Let’s Talk About The Future, Mr Guy said all suburbs should be no more than 20 minutes from jobs, shops and education facilities. ‘‘The concept of a 20-minute city encourages the creation of local jobs within the Wyndham growth area,’’ he said. ‘‘Opportunities such as the Werribee Employment Precinct will assist in increasing the ratio of jobs to local residents driving a sustainable local economy.’’ Victoria’s Growth Areas Authority will release draft plans for the 915-hectare site, wedged between Werribee and Point Cook, by December. The precinct currently employs about 2000 people, but this is projected to grow to 40,000 when fully developed as a mixed-use commercial area. Opposition employment spokesman and Tarneit MP Tim Pallas said a move to generate jobs was long overdue, given the area’s unemployment rate

Way forward: Nik Tsardakis talked up the benefits of an employment precinct in our January 25 story. was closing in on 8 per cent. But he feared the government was reluctant to bankroll multimilliondollar road upgrades around the employment precinct. ‘‘I’d be concerned if we see a restatement of the dodgy arrangements the state government has already put up, which was to fund half the cost of a

half-diamond interchange at Sneydes Road,’’ he said. Committee for Wyndham executive director Nik Tsardakis said the discussion paper was promising. ‘‘The polycentric city issue is something that is critical and is something we would be pushing for with the Werribee Employment Precinct.’’

STUDENTS at Victoria University will join education leaders to assess how hard state cutbacks to TAFE will hurt the western suburbs. Williamstown Labor MP Wade Noonan has organised a forum to give staff and students the chance to understand better how the $290 million TAFE cutbacks will affect them. “These cuts to our public TAFEs will have a disproportionate impact in Melbourne’s west because Victoria University is losing about $40 million a year in funding, alongside Swinburne, the highest cut to any individual TAFE provider.” VU has flagged it will slash almost 80 courses and 100 teaching jobs. Diploma fees in some fields will rocket from $2500 to about $7000. The forum is from 5.30pm on November 21 at Newport Bowls Club.

Predators try to entice girls BY LAURA LITTLE POLICE are warning children to be alert when walking or cycling to school after two attempted abductions in the past week. Investigators don’t believe the incidents were related, but reminded children never to get into a stranger’s car. The most recent incident happened last Thursday morning, when a Westbourne Grammar School student was waiting for a bus on Point Cook Road. The grade 6 girl was approached by a man who asked her to get into his car. She ran to a nearby petrol station and reported the incident to police. In a note to parents, principal Meg Hansen urged parents to talk to their children about staying safe while travelling to and from school.

NEWS ●

Parent David Costa, whose children attend Westbourne Grammar, said he was shocked. ‘‘It’s disgusting. You think your kids would be safe.’’ About 3pm on October 30 a girl was approached by two men in a 4WD tray utility. The driver told the girl to get into the car but she refused and he drove away. The men are described as Caucasian and in their early 30s. The driver had fair, shoulder-length hair, facial hair and a tattoo sleeve. His passenger had short hair. Wyndham’s Senior Detective Donna Melburg said students should avoid walking alone, remain alert to their surroundings and face oncoming traffic so they had a clear view of approaching cars and drivers.

Tools from the Dreamtime Didgeridoos, fire sticks and traditional hunting tools were on show at Point Cook College last week as grade 4 pupils learnt what it was like to be an indigenous Australian. Cultural Infusion, a national touring group that aims to promote cultural harmony and well-being, visited the school last Wednesday. Djarra Blow (pictured) showed pupils hunting tools used by Aboriginals for thousands of years and taught them traditional songs and dances.

Roles deliver an act with a message BY NICK TOSCANO HEARTBROKEN after her boyfriend ended their relationship, ‘Kylie’ fired back dozens of text messages and emails saying she loved him and if he didn’t get back with her, she’d kill herself. This is one scenario Wyndham community lawyers will use to underscore family violence when they take to the stage in a string of performances this month. From physical abuse to the lessobvious emotional or financial abuse, the lawyers-turned-thespians will deliver more than 16 sessions at community halls and schools, each including five role-plays and discussions, as part of their ‘November No Violence’ campaign. With police figures showing almost 6000 reported incidents of family violence last year in Wyndham, Melton, Maribyrnong, Brimbank and Hobsons Bay, community development lawyer Shorna Moore said the idea to put on the performances was in

response to a worsening problem. ‘‘Family violence is a growing concern particularly in Wyndham, recording the second highest rate of family violence incidents of local government [areas],’’ she said. ‘‘It is also an area of law that is most difficult to deliver education and that is why we have decided to try a creative approach that will be less confronting for audience members . . . especially when we are dealing with highly sensitive areas of law such as family violence.’’ Ms Moore said the plays would be a useful tool for different cultural communities who weren’t used to discussing these topics in a public forum. ‘‘Many newly arrived people are very motivated to learn how our legal system works in Australia. I believe though that community lawyers need to create culturally specific education programs when delivering legal education regarding highly sensitive issues, especially family violence,’’ she said.

Mr Kotsiras said the seminar explored the important principles of democracy, multiculturalism and citizenship including topics such as volunteering and the Australian legal system. “The program also provides critical information on safe driving, tenancy, financial management, the role of police, rights and responsibilities of young people and family relationships,” he said.

BY NICK TOSCANO WERRIBEE CFA’s volunteer firefighters put their skills to the test last week when a Monday training night became the real deal. A dark cloud of smoke emerged from half a kilometre down the road from the station after a house in Carter Crescent went up in flames about 7pm. Crews quickly ran hose lines and used disc-cutting saws to gain entry through garage roller doors. Captain Michael Wells (pictured) said an aggressive battle followed at the front and rear of the brick veneer property. It took crews 10 minutes to control the blaze, which was contained to the garage with only minor damage to the house. The Werribee brigade activated pumper, tanker and rescue appliances. They were supported by a pumper from Hoppers Crossing and Point Cook CFA stations, and a breathing apparatus support vehicle from Sun-

It’s time: volunteers get surprise call-up bury. Twenty-five firefighters attended the scene. A council building surveyor inspected the damaged structure, while an inspector from Energy Safe Victoria attended on Tuesday. The cause of the fire is still being investigated although it is believed to be accidental. In a separate incident last Friday, Wyndham CFA crews from Werribee, Hoppers Crossing, Point Cook, Truganina and Wyndham Vale were called to a fire at a unit in Shaws Road in Werribee. The blaze, which began in the bedroom, soon spread through ceiling space and engulfed most of the unit. It was brought under control in 15 minutes and caused an estimated $100,000 damage. Werribee CFA lieutenant Paul Ryan said it appeared an occupant of the unit had placed some lighted incense on a bed head and moved to another area of the unit. Mr Ryan urged residents using incense or candles to take extra care.

INSIDESTORY

Cream of the While most teenage footballers enjoy an off-season break, a select few have maintained their fitness and intensity in a bid to make the big time. TARA MURRAY looks at what it takes to make the AFL grade. T’S the middle of September and the football season is over for the Calder Cannons, but a group of about 12 players continues to train three times a week at Highgate Reserve in Craigieburn. Long, tough sessions under the watchful eye of strength and conditioning coach Steve Forcone are the order of the day. For these players, it’s all about ensuring they’re in top condition for the first week of October and a shot of AFL fame in pre-draft try-outs, including the NAB AFL draft combine (formerly the draft camp), state screening sessions and the AFL ‘DraftStar’ camp. Star at one of these and your stocks rise, along with the chances of being drafted to an AFL club on November 22. Cannon midfielder Jonathan O’Rourke, who hails from the Gisborne Rookies, has been selected to take part in the draft combine. Widely touted as a top 10 pick at next month’s AFL draft, the 18-year-old has been joining his 11 teammates three times a week to prepare for the physical grilling at the camp. ‘‘I’m just trying to go there and have a consistent base in all the testing,’’ O’Rourke says. ‘‘We do gym stuff on the outside, but pretty much we’re doing three nights here and having a rest in between.’’ The Cannons players aren’t alone. Around Melbourne, draft prospects from the TAC Cup teams are working just as hard, including a group of Western Jets players, among them Jake McKenzie. Originally from the Altona Vikings, McKenzie has seen his older brother Trent, a Gold Coast Suns player, go through it all before him ‘‘Hopefully, all the hard work will pay off,’’ McKenzie says of his combine selection. ‘‘I’m doing two running, three weights and three swimming sessions a week; it’s pretty full-on. I reckon I’m fitter now than I was preseason.’’ Jets captain Ashlin Brown is preparing to show his wares at the state screening. ‘‘Towards the end of the year, the training backed up as the games got more intense,’’ the Hoppers Crossing Warriors protege says. ‘‘We’re training harder, getting fit and trying to beat our times from the start of the year.’’ Jets strength and conditioning coach Mathew Pell says this is the time for the players to shine. ‘‘Obviously there was a large drop-off by the time we had finished the season,’’ he says. ‘‘We really tried to adjust their physical preparation and keep that level of fitness and intensity up for what is the expectation at the national combine. ‘‘We really had to challenge them with their energy system training and some interval-based training.’’ Pell says many people don’t realise the work the players put in before the draft. ‘‘These guys are walking into some pretty big

contracts if they are potentially drafted. They have to be doing everything in their physical power to put their hand up. ‘‘Unfortunately, the normal person going through at this particular age group just simply drops off in their training [at the end of the season] and has a good rest without addressing the long-term needs. ‘‘If they don’t shine now, then realistically they’ve missed the boat to play AFL.’’ Hitting the track isn’t the only thing on the minds of the players, particularly those studying for exams: they include Cannons and Macedon Cats star Lachie Plowman. ‘‘During the year I found out I would be going to the draft combine which is pretty cool,’’ says Plowman, an athletic backman also tipped as a high draft pick. ‘‘It’s hard to fit school and training. ‘‘At the start of the school year, I’ve had to concentrate on school, and training had to fit

‘If they don’t shine now, then realistically they have missed the boat to play AFL.’ — Mathew Pell around that. ‘‘As school is finishing up, I’ve been able to do a bit more fitness stuff and still study at the same time.’’ The national draft combine at Etihad Stadium has the best 120 footballers invited to spend four days in the one place. They stay together as a group and concentrate on one thing: football. They are measured, weighed, medically tested and interviewed by the media and club recruiters before they even take the field. Then the real testing begins; jumping, sprints, agility tests, ball skills, goal kicking, endurance running and the dreaded beep test. Western Jets and Spotswood spearhead Spencer White has a point to prove at the combine, after originally missing out on selection. ‘‘I was pretty disappointed not to get it,’’ he says after day two of the combine, ‘‘so I wanted to prove that I belong here by getting a good result. I was hoping to go all right on the jumps but didn’t know how I would go.’’ White, who has been likened to Hawthorn superstar Lance Franklin, topped the list for the running vertical jump with a leap of 100cm, only two centimetres short of the record held by AFL stars Nic Naitanui and Jared Brennan. He also finished third in the standing vertical jump. Cannons best and fairest winner Rory

Learning curve: Jake McKenzie has learned from his brother Trent, who was drafted to the Gold Coast Suns.

Striving: Calder Cannons best and fairest player Rory Atkins is put through his paces at the draft combine.

Picture: Marco DeLuca

Atkins is another to take part in the combine. After the first two days, Atkins, a gun midfielder from Maribyrnong Park, was disappointed with his results. ‘‘It’s good to finally get to this stage of the year and get together with the top 120 blokes from across Australia. ‘‘So far I’ve been middle of the road with everything . . . not too good, but not too bad. ‘‘I’ve had a couple of meetings with teams while I’m here, so I will see how I go.’’ Putting the disappointment of the first two days behind him, he was equal-first in the kicking test with 29/30. State screening gives 115 players a chance to

test in front of clubs for one day, doing the same tests as those at the combine. Western Jets best and fairest winner Josh Bench was among those selected. ‘‘I didn’t get it [picked for the screening] straight away but ended up getting the selection, which was pretty good,’’ says the hard-nosed midfielder from West Footscray who made a name for himself at Albion. ‘‘It was pretty disappointing not to get a spot at the screening and I kept coming down for training for the young guns’ game and eventually got picked.’’ Most players recruited this year will come from either the combine or state screening. For

those who haven’t come through the traditional under-18 competitions, there’s another alternative — the DraftStar combine. In its second year, this includes a mix of players invited from the TAC Cup and others from other leagues who choose to attend. According to Pell, who ran the DraftStar, many of the players were more determined as they saw it as their last opportunity. ‘‘These are the guys who are putting their hands up, playing for, in some cases, local-level football or at a state level. ‘‘They have put their best foot forward and this is a secondary way for them to get noticed.

Pell says players at DraftStar were recording times just as good as those at the national combine. Cannons and Strathmore midfielder Darcy Bailey, son of former Melbourne coach Dean, says going to DraftStar is a bit of an unknown. ‘‘I’m very lucky to be given an opportunity to test well at DraftStar. ‘‘From all reports, it’s similar to the state screening and national. It’s all the same tests, and I’m really looking forward to it. ‘‘Hopefully, I’ll do pretty well.’’ With the testing over, the players have done all they can. Now it’s a waiting game to see whether their dreams will come true.

Mentors, just in time BY GOYA DMYTRYSHCHAK OWEN used to see himself as ‘‘just a shit-kicker from Sunshine’’, caught up in a cycle of crime, homelessness and the revolving door of juvenile detention. But the 20-year-old (pictured), who didn’t want his last name used, is finding his way back with support from Altona-based organisation Latitude: Directions for Young People. Latitude, which services Hobsons Bay and Moonee Valley, has piloted a program with the Rotary Club of Werribee and Freemasons Victoria that provides mentoring for young men. Latitude manager Rhonda Collins says that for many clients, it may be the first positive contact with a male they’ve had in their life. Owen first entered the ‘‘big boys’ unit’’ of the Melbourne Youth Justice Centre at 15, before ending up on the street after his mother gave him an ultimatum. ‘‘I’ve got six younger brothers and sisters, so my mum’s sort of given me

the opportunity whether to stop offending and having the police coming to her door and stuff. Otherwise I sort of had to make my move. ‘‘I didn’t pull my socks up so I sort of got asked to leave.’’ After five months in a refuge, Owen made contact with Latitude and got into transitional housing. It was a move that changed his life. ‘‘When I was 17 and 18 I didn’t know much different,’’ Owen says. ‘‘Being a kid and causing trouble was just part of how we were. ‘‘I’ve got a good relationship with all my family now. ‘‘I think it was just the fact that I’m a lot like my mum so we used to clash a lot. ‘‘Now, I can speak to her every day and we haven’t had a fight in two years nearly.’’ Owen says programs like the InBetweeners have helped him learn to trust again. Ms Collins says it generally takes about six years to break the cycle of homelessness.

‘‘That’s when they’re [clients] in a position to have no further contact with welfare agencies. ‘‘And that’s where the programs that we run come into play because they actually support that development and they build the capacity within the young people. ‘‘The young men’s program, the InBetweeners, is a pilot program. However, we’re already seeing some really positive outcomes. ‘‘Mentoring is really about a positive relationship with a positive male and, generally speaking, most of the young males who come through our doors have not had that. ‘‘They may not have any older males in their life or they’ve had a very dysfunctional relationship with them. ‘‘So, for us, the mentor really just meant a positive relationship.’’ For more information about Latitude, ring 9315 0061 or go to facebook.com/pages/LatitudeDirections-for-Young-People/ 226359067481792

PETER ‘Muddy’ Waters isn’t fanging it down the Hume Highway. But on a motorised scooter, his 11-day inland ride from Sydney to Melbourne to raise money for children’s wheelchairs is a remarkable feat, even at a steady 15km/h. The Werribee resident, who has cerebral palsy, says he wanted to do something for children who need help with mobility like he does. Since setting out from Sydney on October 30, Mr Waters has averaged 100 kilometres a day in his drive to raise funds for children’s foundation Variety and the Lion’s Club Mobility Foundation. Variety’s fund-raising manager Nicole Leppitsch, who is accompanying Mr Waters on his journey, says he drives from 8am-6pm every day. She says the journey has so far raised $10,000, which Variety will use to buy two walkers for children under 18 who have cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis and autism. Mr Waters says the long days can take their toll, but he knows he’s doing it for a good cause.

Tears and hope The inaugural relay has 18 teams, writes Nick Toscano ancer never sleeps, and neither will nearly 200 Point Cook residents when they take part in the suburb’s inaugural Relay for Life fund-raiser this month. Eighteen teams of about 10-12 participants will hit the track at Featherbrook Oval for 18 hours on November 17-18 to raise money for critical research. Participant and organiser John Ballestrino, who works at the electorate office of event patron and Altona MP Jill Hennessy, said organisers hoped to raise more than $20,000. He said candles and brown paper bags would border the track, with heartfelt inscriptions to loved ones who had died from cancer. ‘‘There will be a lot of tear-jerking moments in there, but it’s all about hope, and letting people know they’re

not alone,’’ he said. Mr Ballestrino’s mother died of pancreatic cancer several years ago. In February his friend and previous employer, former Labor MP Lynne Kosky, was diagnosed with breast cancer and embarked on the toughest fight of her life. ‘‘It’s a disease that doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do,’’ he said. Ms Hennessy said Point Cook was over-represented in cancer statistics. ‘‘We want to get people to reflect on how they might reduce their own cancer risk, whether it be by giving up smoking, exercising a bit more or applying sunscreen.’’ Point Cook Relay for Life is from 4pm on Saturday, November 17 to 10am the next day.

A design of the times Builders have seen the light by embracing an energy-efficient design, writes Mark Bunker n intelligent floor plan and multiple northfacing outdoor entertainment areas add extra appeal to this Porter Davis creation. From outside, the house appears a modern build but further exploration reveals its assets, energy efficiency among them. The entry hall opens to a study with plantation shutters and two-pack storage cabinets. Ceiling-height double doors open to the main bedroom with access to a courtyard with merbau deck, a large walk-in wardrobe, and an open en suite with a dual-basin vanity unit. A tiled hallway leads to a lounge room introduced by timber-framed sliding doors,

cleverly added by the original owners; it can also be used as a large guest bedroom, theatre or dining room. Like the main bedroom, it opens to the courtyard which receives afternoon sunlight. An open-plan living hub includes a tiled family-meals area, a living room with ceiling fan, and a semi-open rumpus room; each has sliding doors opening onto a large pergola. Blanco stainless-steel appliances, a cascading island bench topped with Caesarstone and twopack cabinetry are highlights of the kitchen. A timber-framed sliding door introduces a second hallway leading to three bedrooms, a laundry, bathroom and a separate toilet.

The large merbau-decked entertainment area is perfect for alfresco dining. It has a speaker system and is bordered by stylish stone-aggregate paving. The paved pathway leads to a barbecue area with mains gas barbecue at one end and a bamboo-fenced storage area at the other. The main deck looks out to a grassy yard and there’s a shed, vegie garden and a 7500-litre water tank. A 4.7-kW solar panel system helps reduce energy bills. The house is close to schools and the town centre. It’s set in peaceful surroundings with no drive-through traffic.

Asset1 sales director Mark Adams said the new centre complemented the dynamism of the estate and the long-term development of the community, with health-focused, familyfriendly services at its core. ‘‘Creating a community is more than just laying down roads. We have designed this community by thinking like the residents who move here,’’ he said. The estate is close to Werribee Plaza, schools and healthcare facilities.

HILARY McNEVIN EATING OUT

ighpoint shopping centre has opened a new fresh food market that is a veritable feast of choice and quality product at very reasonable prices. Such a place needs to be explored. Enormous shopping centres are rarely associated to good fresh food, there’s a culture around them that readily disconnects us from where our food comes from — the bright lights, the airconditioning, the music — I was wary at first but delighted to find a well-designed area with earthy finishes, that’s easy to navigate and and has helpful service in each shop. There’s an instant buzz as you walk into the central area with the food

H

outlets surrounding the open space. High windows allow in natural light, and while there is a big-name supermarket over one side, it’s the other shops that got our attention. Melbourne Fresh Meats and Poultry is a thoughtfully designed shop with halal meats on one side including good quality beef and lamb. It sells cuts like Asado beef ribs, and offal such as ox livers and lamb hearts, while there are classic cuts like beef rump and lamb cutlets. There’s a separate section dedicated to pork, also reasonably priced with lots of pork belly as well as the less-fatty loin and leg cuts. Fish Pier has an enormous glass cabinet of fresh whole and filleted fish, and shellfish with a takeaway counter filled with deep-fried goodies. A good delicatessen is included in

the mix. Called, Yes it’s Fresh, it’s a name they can stand by as they sell quality cured meats, cheeses, antipasti and sausages both local and imported. Grab some dumplings and noodles at Yahweh Asian Grocery and then immerse yourself in the fresh fruit and vegetable shop that has interesting and intensely fresh produce that’s every colour of the rainbow. From capsicums and mangoes, eggplants to onions, it’s an exciting and vibrant new market at Highpoint and one that is absolutely worth exploring to start to get you reconnected to where your food comes from.

Prepare your tastebuds for titillation, writes Jan Fisher pring in the high country. Sounds good, right? As well as the alpine air, stunning views and ski-crazy population, I’ll be damned if a weekend in Bright doesn’t mean delicious food. It’s high country grazing for humans. Despite a less-than-welcome beginning to our weekend – a highway accident means we arrive two hours late and in the dark – the beds at our accommodation at Chestnut Tree holiday apartments make it worthwhile. Fluffy mattress toppers mean that any spare time we have we feel compelled to crawl back into bed. Next day we wake to views over the mountains and what I think is a freakish one-off; a camellia so tall it reaches the balcony of our first-floor unit. Turns out these gorgeous specimens, with flowers the size of dinner plates, are so common they appear to be used as landscaping infill all over the town. Nola Williams bought the Chestnut Tree with her husband, John, 30 years ago, when

S

it was little more than a near-vertical sheep paddock. I suggest to Nola she must be proud of her achievements, because as well as the stunning camellias, magnolias and dogwoods, the garden has more then 3000 tulips, along with roses, daffodils, miles of hedging, a pool and a play area. ‘‘Too busy,’’ she says. I believe her. If it’s hard to drag ourselves away from Nola and John, our next stop proves even more difficult. Breakfast is at retro-chic cafe Coral Lee, and co-owner Sam Martin is clearly a force of nature. We are all instantly smitten. We eat light-as-air pancakes and I have an Earl Grey tea so good I spend the rest of the meal gazing at it with a great deal of fondness. Martin says she and co-owner Leonie Duggan make everything, except the bread, on the premises and source as much as they can, including my tea, locally. Martin says their reputation for using local produce is gaining quite a following.

a taste of awesome ‘‘People know to bring us stuff,’’ she says. ‘‘They just drop in with lemons or basil.’’ I check my notes after our visit and notice my daughter has added ‘‘awesome’’ in the margin. At the insistence of everyone we meet, we visit the local market on the banks of the Ovens River and, maybe it’s all that fresh air, but we go a little crazy. All stalls must stock locally made or grown products and we buy jams, chutney, nuts, candles, soap, a bacon butty and even a knitted rainbow beanie. Next stop is the Bright Brewery, just up the hill. The microbrewery is in the process of making itself less micro by building a grand new premises next door. We help out by buying every sort of beer they have. A sit down is required at Ginger Baker, a cafe further along the river. Ginger Baker looks like it was roughly hewn by lumberjacks, but it was renovated only late last year. And while the setting might put the rust into rustic, the food is pure sophistication. Manager Tim Schroder says the formula was an instant success. Ginger Baker has a tapas-style menu, which Schroder says was owner Tim Walton’s choice. ‘‘It’s fresh food, beautifully grown in the area

and you can’t really go wrong with that,’’ he says. I concur. The locally grown rocket in my salad has so much flavour it almost tastes like chilli. Our last stop is the Butter Factory in Myrtleford, run by mother and daughter team Bronwyn and Naomi Ingleton. Naomi started a cafe in the former butter factory in 2007, and Bronwyn joined her after the birth of Naomi’s first child. Over a dish of Bronwyn’s delicious roasted mushrooms on toasted pumpkin seed bread, Naomi says she decided to diversify after a slump in the tourism market. She says while making butter in a former butter factory seemed the obvious choice, her father sealed the decision. ‘‘He told me to stick to the staples,’’ Naomi says. We indulge in a butter tasting (no really, it’s work), and I make a silent promise to my tastebuds to find a supplier when I get home. As I am, once again, tearing myself away, I tell Naomi and Bronwyn I seem to have done nothing but eat the entire weekend. They both nod. ‘‘That’s right,’’ Naomi says. ‘‘And drink,’’ she adds. Jan Fisher travelled to Bright courtesy of the North East Victoria Tourism Board.

Marlborough gold Ben Thomas’ savvy take on New Zealand’s legendary wine region

Love a bargain?

N

towards pinot gris, the region’s other varieties are likely to grow in importance. Stoneleigh winemaker Jamie Marfell says the defining differences between the regions are temperature and soil types, two key elements to terroir. “If you look at a soil map of the Wairau River, close to the river it’s all free-draining alluvial soils, while closer to the sea it’s more silts over gravels due to flooding over many lifetimes,” says Marfell. Home to Marlborough’s earliest vineyards, the Wairau Valley is by the side of the Wairau River, which winds its way from inland mountains out to Cloudy Bay. “That side of the valley is quite different because the free-draining nature of the soils, which means, structurally, the wines are different. Growing on gravels means the wines tend to be lighter in body and a backbone of acidity,” he says. “You also get beautiful aromatics in these wines compared to the other, cooler subregions. Wairau pinots seem to be quite lifted, with raspberry, strawberry, red fruits. It’s warmer country, too, with warmer nights by two or three degrees and, from a

ripening point of view, it is the first part of the region to be harvested.’’ Interestingly, sauvignon blanc from this area doesn’t contain much methoxypyrazine – the chemical that gives Marlborough savvy its trademark vegetal notes of capsicum and pea pod. If you want them in the wines, you need to go to the other side of the valley, up on the clays. From a harvest point of view, on the southern valleys, it’s about 10 days later (than the Wairau Valley). Cold air from surrounding mountains drops into the southern valleys, keeping night temperatures lower and extending the ripening period of the grapes. Because of the extended ripening of the grapes, reds from the surrounding vineyards tend to be richer and darker than those of the Wairau. Even cooler again is the Awatere Valley, 20 kilometres south of Blenheim. With a dry, maritime climate, its sauvignon blanc has distinctive capsicum and tomato characters. ■ To read more reviews, visit www.theweeklyreview.com.au/wine.

Framingham was the first cellar door I visited in Marlborough and I was just as taken with the rieslings then as I was with this. Perfumed aromas include lime, citrus blossom, red apple and marmalade, and these are mirrored on the palate. It’s in the mouth where this wine gets really exciting. It’s off-dry, so the residual sugar adds texture, while bright acid provides tension and balances the sweet flavours out. There’s cut and thrust to the intense lime cordial and apple flavours on the finish. Food Match: Roast pork belly 5★ Outstanding 4★ Really good 3★ Good

ot that long ago, if you’d asked for Marlborough in a bar you’d have been handed a pack of smokes. Thesedays it’s a glass of crisp sauvignon blanc. While sauvignon blanc leads the way for the region – its distinctive, heady mix of herbaceous and tropical fruit characters delivering a consistent and familiar experience – there’s much more to Marlborough wine than meets the eye. It’s not all sauvignon blanc, with some really interesting riesling, pinot noir and gris, as well as syrah. Marlborough is home to 60 per cent of New Zealand’s vineyards, carpeting the landscape of the Wairau, Awatere and southern valleys. Landing at Blenheim airport feels like touching down in the middle of one large vineyard. This mass of vines is spread across three distinct subregions of Marlborough that produce very different styles of sauvignon blanc and, more importantly, are well suited to producing a range of reds and whites. With data from major retailers showing some drinkers are moving away from sav blanc

Director ratchets up the tension Real-life thriller’s packed with suspense, writes Stephen A Russell en Affleck’s third feature-length offering in the director’s chair (after 2007’s Gone Baby Gone and The Town in 2010), works the adage that truth is stranger than fiction. Tapping into one of the CIA’s more surreal declassified files, Affleck stars as exfiltration specialist Tony Mendez, secretly rewarded for his audacious plan to bust free six US citizens hiding in the Canadian embassy at the height of the hostage crisis in Iran’s heaving capital city, Tehran, in 1979. Mendez hits upon the idea of faking a sci-fi film’s scouting mission as the cover story for his breakout plans, enlisting the aid of Lester Segal (Alan Arkin), a Hollywood producer in his twilight years, and makeup supremo and sometime CIA ally John Chambers (John Goodman). This trio steals the show, while Scoot McNairy and Clea DuVall stand out among the hostages and Victor Garber is stoic as the Canadian ambassador. Bryan Cranston also relishes his turn as a volatile CIA boss. It’s a rare treat that a true-life film this accomplished is as breezily enjoyable. A catch-up on

B

ARGO (M) Stars: Ben Affleck, John Goodman, Alan Arkin Director: Ben Affleck

recent Iranian history, delivered in storyboard form at the beginning, is informative without being patronising, and the movie doesn’t shy from highlighting the duplicitous actions of the US government. Affleck masterfully cranks up the tension. It’s nail-biting without resorting to car chases and gunfights (for the most part), and tightly focused on the personal relationships between the secret six. As Mendez, Affleck is scruffily, endearingly admirable, unafraid of overturning the direct command of the president for the sake of the mission. The fact that the real-life agent couldn’t even show his son his bravery award until Clinton released the file in 1997 is mind-bending. Even if you know how it pans out, I challenge you not to be on the edge of your seat during the popcorn-scattering conclusion to this daring mission.
