T

he City of Port Phillip is a great place to live. It’s also a wonderful place to visit, which is evidenced by the sheer number of people who come to our beaches, entertainment venues and eateries. But there are many strategic challenges facing the city and the new councillors. To date, there has been a lack of funding to properly manage Port Phillip’s assets. Many small and unique businesses are struggling, putting pressure on some of our most popular business strips. One example of a project that is long overdue is the greening of Fitzroy Street. The lack of action in this precinct has negatively affected businesses, particularly between Grey Street and Acland Street. Another example of lost opportunity is the failure to tap into the cruise ship market, which practically delivers consumers to Port Phillip. It is a mystery to me why we have so many ships arriving each year, yet we do not have a system in place to encourage tourists to visit our city. Instead, they catch a tram straight into Melbourne. I hope that the upcoming review of the St Kilda Festival marks the beginning of the development of an events strategy that drives the right events at the right time to the City of Port Phillip. Proposed planning zone changes also pose challenges for the incoming council. The growth of the Melbourne city zone will have an impact on our way of life and could harm our villages. I do fear that the openness and diverse aspects we love about Port Phillip may be threatened.

NOVEMBER 7, 2012

For example, rezoning in industrial areas could have a detrimental impact on our already stressed strip-shopping locations. There is little doubt that things such as street trading, car parking and the development of super tram stops are important issues for our area and things the new council must address. Last summer, there was a constant traffic jam in places that used to flow. Driving along Beach Road, Fitzroy

Street or Bay Street in prime time are examples of this. The new councillors seem to have varying views about many issues. It is my hope that they will come together and actively work with residents and businesses to develop a strategy that addresses the many challenges we face. The tourism board will be lobbying for greater consultation between business and the council and for strategic input into the development of an events strategy.

PROFILE TRACEY COOPER, 43 WHAT I LOVE ABOUT PORT PHILLIP: Our villages, the Gay Pride march and winter walks on the beach before a nice hot bowl of pasta and glass of wine. WHAT I WOULD CHANGE: The lack of action in restoring the Palais. This is of state significance.

Affordable housing offers hope for tenants BY BEAU DONELLY bdonelly@mmpgroup.com.au

RESIDENTS of Port Phillip’s newest affordable housing development are unpacking their belongings after keys to 81 apartments on Chapel Street were handed over in October. The $32 million St Kilda complex, which has 50 onebedroom, 28 two-bedroom and three three-bedroom apartments, was officially opened last

week. It is the third Port Phillip Housing Association-managed development to open in Port Phillip in the past three months and adds 150 new apartments to the community housing register. The non-profit organisation manages community housing for singles, couples and families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Community housing is not managed by the government but offers accommodation to people

on low incomes who are often on the public housing waiting list. Tenant Alexia Ejaz and her five-year-old daughter Aliya secured a two-bedroom apartment in the new development. The single mother said she had been priced out of the private rental market but wanted to stay in Port Phillip, where Aliya has grown up and attends kindergarten. ‘‘Without help we couldn’t stay in the area,’’ said Ms Ejaz.

‘‘Real estate agents don’t look twice at single-income parents.” Ms Ejaz pays $313 a week instead of the market value of $400. “It’s the groceries. It’s the difference between having emergency money and not having it,” she said. PPHA has 822 properties in its portfolio, housing more than 1100 residents. The Chapel Street development brings the number of residents housed in Port Phillip to almost 800.

Fire force near retirement age SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

BY BRIDGET FITZGERALD bridget.fitzgerald@fairfaxmedia.com.au

FIREFIGHTERS will reach retirement age in “significant” numbers in the next five years, but the Metropolitan Fire Brigade has no plans to attract more younger people. More than 60 per cent of MFB staff members are aged above 45, while only 15 per cent are under 34. Corporate MFB staff make up one-sixth of total staff numbers – there are 307 corporate staff and 1738 operations staff. The MFB has acknowledged the workforce age factor. Chief executive Nick Easy said that while a “significant proportion” of the workforce would be eligible for retirement in the next five years, there were no campaigns targeted at attracting new recruits or “any specific group of people”. In the past 12 months, the number of MFB staff aged under 25 rose from 19 to 24 and the number of staff aged 25 to 34 rose from 272 to 314. Mr Easy said the work was physically demanding and the brigade recruited “fit and active” people for the job. “Since 2007, MFB has received more than 8000 applications for recruit firefighters and has employed 407,” he said. South Melbourne firefighter Ken Finn is 52 and has been in the job since 1988. Mr Finn said the fire brigade was like a “paramilitary operation” and needed young guys out in the field and older guys doing the thinking.

 NEW BLOOD: Recruit firefighters Chris Turner (left) and Adam Sadler (right) at MFB training in Richmond He said the experience of older firefighters was invaluable, but there were physical limitations. “If you’re in a burning building you don’t want a 55-yearold,” he said. “You want a 25-year-old kicking the door in.”

To maintain a pool of experience, Mr Easy said the MFB was continually recruiting. In the past year, 47 new firefighters have graduated and are working at stations around the metropolitan district. A further 48 firefighters will

complete their courses by December. There is no age limit for recruitment – anyone with a valid drivers licence is eligible to apply. The MFB attracts recruits from a wide range of backgrounds, including trades, office workers and teachers.

BRIEFS ■ PLANNING DISCUSSION Port Phillip residents can have their say on metropolitan planning in an online discussion about the vision for Melbourne in the next 40 years. Planning Minister Matthew Guy is encouraging residents to provide feedback to a discussion paper that will help guide development. Issues include developing the CBD as a 24-hour world city. To comment on the paper, visit planmelbourne.vic.gov.au before March 1.

CREATURE COMFORTS St Kilda church goers have joined a nationwide campaign against live animal exports. More than 150 parishioners from St James the Great Anglican church signed the Animals Australia petition at their annual Blessing of the Animals in October. St James priest Father Roger Kelly (pictured holding Suki and with Irvine and Carson) says the blessing attracts animal lovers from across the state. He says parishioners joined the campaign because they want to prevent the “huge suffering” inflicted upon live exported animals.

■ EAST ST KILDA WORKS A $150,000 East St Kilda road upgrade was carried out last week. Council upgraded the surface of Alma Road from Westbury Street to Boondara Grove. ■ NEW DEPRESSION CLINIC The Alfred has become the first public hospital in Australia to offer a revolutionary treatment for clinical depression. The Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Clinic provides noninvasive, non-drug procedures for treatment-resistant depression to help those who have not responded to medical or psychological therapies. The state government has delivered about $600,000 to establish the clinic.

mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety. “We need much more attention on helping people to recover from a mental illness, as it is the third most likely reason that people in our community lose years of healthy living and die prematurely,” Dr Deveny said. Bayside Medicare Local is vying for a share of the federal government’s $549 million Partners in Recovery funds to help navigate ser-

vices on a person’s behalf. The organisation is joining service providers including the Alfred Hospital, Southern Health, Prahran Mission and Inner South Community Health Service, to bid for a share of the money. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

VOX POP WHY DIDN’T YOU VOTE IN LAST WEEKEND’S LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTION? MICHAEL PASQUALE, St Kilda I didn’t even know about it.

AUSTIN BROWN, St Kilda I tried, I went online to enrol to vote in this area but it was too difficult. I actually wanted to vote. One of the candidates did a doorknock and spoke to me about his policies ... my vote was going to go to him, but it was too hard in the end, so I gave up trying to enrol before the election.

EVAN RICHARDS, St Kilda I totally lost track of things and forgot to vote. I could have voted early but left it too late, then missed out. I wanted to vote for Serge [Thomann] but worked until 9am the morning of the voting and just forgot. I am upset I didn’t get to vote ... guess I will be getting a $70 fine in the mail, too.

Election funds to be revealed aschetzer@mmpgroup.com.au

NEWLY elected councillors and candidates will be forced to reveal campaign donations to the public for the first time in December following law changes. Candidates have 40 days from the October 27 election to disclose how much they received to fund their campaign and who they received the assistance from. Their respective local governments will publish the information 14 days after that date. The new rule will apply to donations of $500 or more in cash or in-kind. Previously, councils kept a record of disclosed election campaign donations but they were not made available to the public unless on request. The state Upper House passed

the Local Government Act amendment last month, including changes to how complaints against chief executives are handled and council costs in VCAT hearings into councillor misconduct. Victorian Local Governance Association CEO Maree McPherson said the move to place donations online was an important step in improving transparency. Greg Charter, spokesman for Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell, said the changes brought councils ‘‘into the 21st century’’ and ref lected community demand for more clarity on donations. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● STRAP

AS warm weather stirs the snake population, University of Melbourne vets are reminding owners to protect their pets in parks and homes. University vet Mark Davis said emergency services had recently treated several dogs needing anti-venom and critical care after being bitten. “People can avoid encountering snakes by clearing out potential hideouts such as piles of rubbish and long grass,” Dr Davis said. ‘‘When out walking, owners should keep their dogs in sight and avoid long grass and waterways.” Dr Davis said owners needed to recognise symptoms of when a pet is bitten such as collapse, seizures, difficulty breathing or walking, and vomiting. Staffordshire terrier Melon was treated at the university’s veterinary hospital after attacking a snake in his back yard. He was on life support for three days.

PORT Phillip council will mount a water safety campaign this summer. The council will install signs around the bay to help protect swimmers from jet-ski operators who defy regulations that set swimming-only areas along the foreshore. Swimming-only zones were implemented by the state government last year. They include the beach between Wright and Armstrong streets in Middle Park, the beach in front of Port Melbourne and South Melbourne life saving clubs, and the beach between St Kilda Marina and St Kilda Pier. Current laws prohibit personal watercraft, or jet-skis, travelling faster than five knots within 50 metres

Put a new spin on old things Local artist and business owner Madeleine Grummet will host one of five “make it yourself” workshops at the Upcycling Fashion and Craft event in South Melbourne on Saturday. Her Spin it Right Round workshop will show participants how to create mixed-media collages on reclaimed vinyl LPs, plywood offcuts, vintage dictionaries and retro books. Other workshops will cover how to make natural face scrubs from common pantry ingredients and how to reinvent old jewellery. At South Melbourne Commons, 217-239 Montague Street, South Melbourne, on November 10 from 11am-1pm.

of a swimmer or 100 metres of another vessel. Under the campaign, swim safety signage will become a permanent fixture along Port Phillip’s foreshore. The signs will increase awareness of boating and swimming zone regulations and are aimed at reducing the number of accidents involving swimmers and jet-skis. The council will also use its website and newsletters to explain the beach rules. A jet-skier faced court over a collision near Lagoon Pier in Port Melbourne in February with a 51-yearold man who died shortly after. It was the third serious accident involving a swimmer and a jet-ski in Port Phillip Bay within six months. A Port Phillip spokeswoman said it would continue to advocate for reform of boating rules. “Port Phillip places public safety of residents and visitors as a very high priority.”

The federal government released a white paper on Australia in the Asian Century on October 28. The report states Australian students should be learning more Asian languages to engage with rapidly developing Asian countries. Ms Wong said the government needed to invest in more than just language curriculum, including encouraging interest in Asian cultures among non-Asian Australians.

Brighton Grammar began its Chinese-language program three years ago, and its first set of year 12 Chinese students will finish next year. Nancy Ting, who was employed in 2009 to start the Chinese program, said governments needed to facilitate activities such as exchange programs so students could experience using their skills in an Asian culture.

COUNCILS across the state have lost the right to charge differential rates after changes to the Local Government Act were confirmed last month. Councils must now seek approval from Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell to charge some ratepayers more than others based on what type of property or land they own. Current differential rates could also be cancelled if the minister does not approve them. Thousands of ratepayers across the state could be affected, depending on the outcome of a six-month consultation process that will determine how the changes will be implemented. Ms Powell’s spokesman, Greg Charter, said current differential rates could be banned if they did not adhere to the soon-to-be formulated guidelines. Darebin and Moreland could be hit hard by the changes. Moreland council was the first in the state to apply a differential rate on gambling venues, with the extra money spent on programs to counter problem gambling. Darebin charges more for vacant land and pokie machine operators. It is also considering increasing rates for fast-food operators. Darebin corporate and business services acting director Kerrie Jordan said the council would determine its position based on the findings of the ministerial committee into differential rates and the new guidelines. Victorian Local Governance Association chief executive Maree McPherson said the amendments to the act were a mixture of ‘‘sensible improvements’’ and ‘‘unnecessary interventions’’. She supported the rights of councils to continue to make decisions on differential rates independently. ‘‘But we will work with the government to develop the ministerial guidelines on differential rates,’’ she said. The guidelines will be created in time for the 2013-14 budget.

STUDENTS learning Chinese in Bayside struggle to find native speakers to practise with, according to the head of a language school. Xin Jin Shan Chinese Language and Culture School director Cathy Wong runs Chinese language tutorial classes for Brighton Grammar and Firbank students.

She says there are not enough opportunities for non-Chinese students to practise language skills because there are fewer Chineseborn people in Bayside than in other parts of Melbourne. “Only coming once a week to speak – this is not enough to learn a language,” she said. One per cent of Bayside residents are Chinese-born, compared to 1.8 per cent across Victoria.

$2.5m lost on scams

ON THE RECORD A record is: a) made to be broken; b) an enduring legacy; c) a unique achievement; d) a collection of musical work; e) all of the above. If you guessed ‘e’, you have probably heard of Dean Frenkel, a Melbourne vocal artist who sang the longest note to become the Guinness world record-holder from 2005 to 2009, when his effort was smashed. He is embarking on a new challenge, to sing the most tones in 30 seconds. He can do 180; he showed us. To see the video evidence, go to melbournetimesweekly.com.au. Your average punter wouldn’t get why people such as Frenkel strive for Guinness recognition alongside Ilker Yilmaz, the Turkish man who can shoot milk the furthest out of his eye, or Supatra Sasuphan the hairiest teenager. ‘‘There’s no Olympic Games for singing,’’ Frenkel says. There’s no Nobel Prize either. Frenkel will make his record attempt next year. DAN MOSS

AUSTRALIANS lost $2.5 million in online sports investment scams this year, according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. Last year consumers lost more than $4.7 million in ‘‘prediction software’’, with 85 individuals reporting losses of up to $10,000. Commission spokesman Duncan Harrod said punters were particularly at risk of losing money in online sports betting scams during the spring racing carnival. Prediction software claims to deliver “guaranteed winnings” by assessing weather conditions, the state of the horse or condition of the jockey. The software can cost more than $15,000. Mr Harrod said consumers needed to be careful during the racing season.“Schemes are often camouflaged as legitimate investments when they are merely just a form of gambling and, in many cases, outright scams,” he said. Minister for Gaming Michael O’Brien said people should gamble responsibly, and only with licensed bodies. He said the state government had invested record funding of $150 million to combat problem gambling during the past four years. Mr Harrod said consumers needed to keep in mind that there were no guaranteed “get rich quick” schemes. “No one can guarantee that you will make money by gambling,” he said. BRIDGET FITZGERALD

Law no threat to fauna fans ANIMAL activists have defied new laws that ban people feeding possums in Carlton North’s Curtain Square. Yarra City Council passed Local Law 3 in July, which bans the feeding of wild animals in public. Animal Active’s campaign director, Rheya Linden, said a core group of about 50 volunteers provide food and water to the square’s animals every other night. Yarra City Council confirmed no one had been fined yet. Ms Linden said volunteers were not concerned about breaking the council’s law and would continue to care for the possums until the council provided them with adequate sustenance.

‘‘We won’t walk away from the animals when they’re in need ... About 98 per cent of people who use the park understand why we feed the possums there. ‘‘There’s not enough trees and water and there’s irresponsible human behaviour,’’ she said. The council is discussing introducing a controlled feeding program in the square. Ms Linden said volunteers would continue to feed the animals until a ‘‘suitable’’ program was put into effect. In April, the council approved a controversial program to reduce the number of possums in the square. Contraceptive implants will be inserted into some possums to restrict their breeding. Tree banding, controlled feeding and a tree planting strategy are also part of the plan. Council officers said the ban was for ‘‘ecological reasons and also to avoid nuisances arising, such as food on the ground creating litter [or] encouraging vermin’’. ALANA SCHETZER

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ WINNING WAYS David Robinson is the new 2012 Port Phillip psephologist, picking the most winners in last Saturday’s local council elections. David, convenor of LIVE, our local climate change action group, has shown his very superior analytic and predictive skills, which will be a great fillip against any climate change deniers in Port Phillip. Ann Birrell / West St Kilda ■ TAXING TIMES I applaud the federal government’s actions to preserve the surplus by curtailing some items of middleclass welfare. It is disappointing, however, that it has also taken the socially irresponsible decision to cut funding for medical and scientific research. Australia has a long and proud record in this area, including a number of Nobel Prize winners. I suggest that a far greater potential source of budget savings is the religion industry: billions of dollars could be saved by removing ‘‘advancing religion’’ from the list of

‘‘charitable purposes’’ that attract tax concessions, deductions and exemptions, as well as direct and indirect grants and subsidies. Religion is a personal and private matter: its practise and/or promotion should not be funded by taxpayers. Assorted sects and cults, such as the Exclusive Brethren and Scientology, have the status of religions in Australian tax law and enjoy these benefits at our expense. Even commercial businesses owned and operated by religious bodies do not pay income tax on their profits. Most people are unaware, for instance, that the Sanitarium Health Food Company pays no income tax, because it is owned by the Seventhday Adventist Church. ‘‘Advancing religion’’ is not comparable to ‘‘advancing education’’ or any of the other socially desirable charitable purposes (like caring for the poor, sick, aged, disabled, disadvantaged, homeless, orphaned and marginalised) given special tax treatment. It should be removed

from the Income Tax Assessment Act. Australia’s tax system needs to relocate permanently into the 21st century. Rosemary Sceats / via email

■ FREE PUSSY RIOT Pussy Riot’s remaining two imprisoned members are now for the gulags. It’s pathetic persecuting two women for a bit of irreverent behaviour and it shows neither Putin nor the whole Russian nation are capable of handling the concept of free expression and free speech. Further, it shows that power in Russia’s sorry, humourless, history goes hand in hand with selfishness and cruelty, and that isn’t going to change any time soon. J.

t’s the tale of two cities in Port Phillip, where residents last week voted to install three unChain candidates on one side of town, three Community Alliance of Port Phillip members on the other and a Liberal – the first for the city in almost two decades – in the middle. The City of Port Phillip has again made history for low voter attendance, with the latest figures showing that fewer than half of the municipality’s 80,000 eligible voters had cast their ballot. Those who did continued to buck the statewide trend of selecting mostly male representatives, electing five women to the council of seven. Only one incumbent – Greens

John Middleton – lost his seat in the election. After leading at the polling booth with 29 per cent of the primary vote for the hotly contested Junction ward, he was defeated in preference deals, losing his seat to Liberal Party member Andrew Bond, who scored just over 23 per cent in the primary. Preferences from former mayor and Labor member Dick Gross got the Liberal candidate over the line in a nail-biting result that went to a recount last Monday. In the end, Middleton was defeated by just 28 votes. This unexpected shake-up, which has unseated the council’s only Greens member, could provide unChain with the extra grunt it

NOVEMBER 7, 2012

needs to steal the majority from Community Alliance of Port Phillip and lock down the mayorship this week. But St Kilda resident Cr Bond says there is no reason to believe the councillors couldn’t all work together.“It doesn’t appear at this stage as though there is going to be a three-three-one split,” he says.“I think we’re all quite happy to work together.”

Mr Bond is the national sales manager for a food company in Cheltenham. He has been a member of the Liberal Party since 2008 and the chair of the Albert Park state electoral conference for the Liberal Party for the past two years.

He says he will use his time on the council to push for a strategic plan to guide development control in Junction ward, adding that the parking shortages and costs frustrate residents and drive business away from traders. He says the council’s car policy is out of touch with the community’s needs and lifestyle. Cr Bond has also slammed Port Phillip’s rate hike of 5.9 per cent this year, saying the council’s services aren’t up to scratch. He has also criticised the council for abandoning regular hard rubbish collections, which he says leads to unsightly junk crowding the streets. The only other incumbents who ran for re-election, unChain’s Serge

Thomann and Jane Touzeau, easily held on to their respective wards of Catani and Point Ormond. Cr Thomann, who was first elected to the council in 2008 on his opposition to the ultimately unsuccessful St Kilda Triangle development, thrashed his two opponents at the polling booth, securing more than half of the primary vote.

Cr Thomann wants to reinstate third-party rights at the St Kilda Triangle so residents can object to future development. He says preservation of the Palais is of upmost importance, regardless of what happens on the site. During his last term, Cr Thomann served as the chair

of the multicultural forum and the domestic animal management group. He lists a new social housing development, better traffic management and the promotion of residential amenity among his achievements. He says he advocated for the establishment of the St Kilda Tourism Association and played a vital role in supporting the development of the Marina Reserve skate park. His colleague, Cr Touzeau from Elwood, scored 46 per cent of the primary vote at the election, jumping to 54 per cent after candidates’ preferences were considered.This is the Point Ormond ward councillor’s second term on Port Phillip council. She was elected in 2008. Her background is in community development and adult education.

Cr Touzeau says she was responsible for bringing the facts of the Elster Creek catchment to the council’s attention and that her work led to the council supporting the Association of Bayside Municipalities in its bid to lock in federal funding for a coastal hazard vulnerability assessment of Port Phillip Bay, an important step in deciding how to manage flooding in Elwood. Cr Touzeau says she is committed to making Port Phillip a more water-aware city, adding that a renewed street and drain cleaning contract provide better services for residents. The two incumbents will be joined on the council by unChain newcomer Vanessa Huxley, who won neighbouring Carlisle ward with 24 per cent of the primary vote, just ahead of the Greens’Tim Baxter (23 per cent) and CAPP’s

Gerry McLoughlin (22 per cent). After the distribution of preferences, Cr Huxley was sitting on almost 55 per cent of the vote. Carlisle ward was left vacant by former mayor and CAPP member Rachel Powning.

Cr Huxley, originally from Canberra, moved to Melbourne three years ago and has lived in St Kilda East for almost 12 months. She is the relationship manager at a data centre, consulting and cloud computing company and an member of the Women in Business Network. Cr Huxley, the youngest of the seven councillors, believes Port Phillip’s youth need a voice. She plans to engage the city’s younger residents on governance issues and is passionate about live music, arts and entertainment. She says she is committed to improving council services, listing street cleaning and road upgrades as priorities. Cr Huxley also says she will ensure excellence in the Balaclava station redevelopment and engage with the local community on the implementation of the Carlisle Street Activity Centre plan. On the other side of the municipality, CAPP held on to two seats left vacant by departing councillors and snapped up a third. Bernadene Voss, Anita Horvath and Amanda Stevens were elected to Sandridge, Emerald Hill and Albert Park wards respectively.They all received the most votes at the polling booth, but after preference deals were neck and neck with rivals. Lawyer Amanda Stevens secured her ward with an 86vote lead ahead of the Greens’

Ann Birrell. She has lived in Port Phillip for 12 years with her husband and two children. She is a fund-raising co-ordinator and member of the Middle Park Primary School council, where her eldest daughter is a student. She also spent four years on the management committee of the Clarendon Children’s Centre in South Melbourne. She has more than 10 years’ experience in corporate governance and dispute resolution and has worked in private practice as well as at federal corporate regulator ASIC. She now runs her own business, providing specialist advice on corporate leadership. Cr Stevens campaigned on good corporate governance and says the provision of quality childcare, aged care, transport and housing are vital to maintaining a vibrant community. She has pledged to support policies promoting diversity and invest in social justice projects.

Anita Horvath received almost half the votes in Emerald Hill, ultimately beating unChain’s Richard Roberts by 80 votes. The long-time Port Phillip resident works on a casual basis as a transactional lawyer, specialising in technology transfer and intellectual property licensing. Cr Horvath, who was an owner and director of cultural and natural heritage consultancy Biosis Research, also volunteers at St Kilda legal service one night a week. She says she will advocate for more kindergarten places in Port Phillip and support the establishment of new nursing homes and improved services for

ABOVE FROM LEFT: Cr Jane Touzeau, Cr Amanda Stevens, Cr Serge Thomann, Cr Anita Horvath, Cr Vanessa Huxley BELOW FROM LEFT: Cr Bernadene Voss and Cr Andrew Bond

the elderly and disabled. She says she is committed to supporting vulnerable people and will advocate for more public housing and stricter gaming machine controls. She believes tight planning and heritage controls must be maintained in the city and says she will push for better street lighting and maintenance. She says she is keen to work on the South Melbourne Market Committee and wants to improve the Clarendon Street shopping strip.

Bernadene Voss was also successful in Sandridge ward with 44 per cent of the primary vote. After preferences were considered, the Port Melbourne resident secured the seat ahead of

ALP member Lee Turner by just 29 votes. For the past six years Cr Voss, a former marketing business owner, has been running the Port Melbourne Family and Children’s Hub. She is the spokeswoman for the Two Schools Now campaign and says she will ensure a new primary and a new secondary school are delivered in Port Phillip. Cr Voss says she is committed to protecting Port Melbourne’s amenity, which is at risk from poor planning and proposed changes to Fishermans Bend and Webb Dock. She adds that she is also committed to cleaning up the “drain mess” and overhauling traffic management in her ward by providing better intersections and solutions to parking problems.

OVER HEARD THREE OF THE BEST OUTDOOR BARBECUES

THE VERDICT The dishes are well-paced and portions perfectly gauged, with standouts including yuzu-cured scallop with ponzu jelly and the spring lamb noisette with pea and goat’s cheese zucchini flowers. The petit fours were somewhat disappointing – only macarons were served and one of the two flavours was a tad dense and overly chewy. At $85 a head this is a relatively affordable way to have the degustation experience. The Graham’s seasonal degustation menu is available from 6pm-10pm every night.

It has the makings of a huge musical, much like Keating! that began in a small room in the Trades Hall building.’’ Ives says Fulton, who immigrated from Scotland when she was a child and moved to Sydney at 18, is a ‘‘terrific Australian woman everyone should know about’’. ‘‘I chose Amy because she has the energy and the heart of Margaret Fulton, and she’s as forthright.’’ Lehpamer, who has performed in the Broadway hit Rock of Ages, Shane Warne: The Musical and The Threepenny Opera, is most moved by Fulton’s authenticity, which is a far cry from the ‘‘manufactured cooking shows’’. ‘‘She’s not camera-hungry.

he wit rises as readily as Margaret Fulton’s passionfruit pavlova in a small rehearsal room where a young crew is cooking up what could well become the next homegrown hit musical. In the spotlight is Amy Lehpamer (pictured), wielding the creamer in a saucy segment from Margaret Fulton: Queen of the Dessert. When she took on the role, Lehpamer knew Fulton only by her name on cookbooks and the supermarket ad featuring Fulton, her daughter and two granddaughters. Now she has the highest praise for the National Living Treasure who enlivened the tastebuds of Australians accustomed to meat and three veg. ‘‘She is the face of domesticity and she has the homely vibe about her,’’ says Lehpamer, after a hectic song and dance routine.“But she wasn’t just waiting for her husband to come home and coming up with recipes. She was a single mother and relentless in pursuing a career at a time when it was not done. “She said she didn’t need to call herself a feminist because she believed in herself. I’m really thrilled to get to know her.’’ So is Bryce Ives, artistic director of Present Tense, the theatre company behind the mouth-watering musical.

It is a bit long and I couldn’t work out what was going on with Alec Baldwin’s character but it was a great film. Penelope Cruz is fantastic. Out of 10: 8 Favourite film: Midnight in Paris

Lives: Elsternwick Worth the price of admission? It kept me captivated. I loved the drama and the quirkiness. It was really clever. He makes a joke about Hollywood and the dramas of love. Out of 10: 7 Favourite film: Mental was great. The Vow and The Notebook would be right up there, too.

LAUGH: Have a chuckle at lo-fi pop musical play Midsummer. This quirky romantic tale of mismatched lovers who score a sum of money and have a wild weekend opens at Red Stitch Theatre, rear, 2 Chapel Street, St Kilda, on November 16. , shows are at 8pm each night, plus other times. Tickets $29/$39. Details: visit redstitch.net or call 9533 8083.

WHEN LESS IS MORE SCOTT BOCSKAY is chief executive of the Sustainable Melbourne Fund

W

alking into Scott Bocskay’s house is like strolling down a lane at a bowling alley, except the hardest thing likely to hit you is a felt bowling ball tossed by one of his two children. The floor of the long hallway of Bocskay’s refurbished Victorian home is made from recycled timber lanes tossed out by bowling alleys, with all the markings intact. So is his dining table, which he made himself. Bocskay, the chief executive of the Sustainable Melbourne Fund, walks his talk. At work, he rides a bike to get to inner-suburban meetings and walks to city meetings. The former Australian director of the Clinton Foundation, which helps cities set up sustainability programs, has made the Sustainable Melbourne Fund a world leader. At home, Bocskay practises what he preaches and has reversed what he says is ‘‘tantamount to throwing

Temporary carers needed!

money in the rubbish heap’’. His house has a 7-star performance rating, only because it has an eastwest orientation. A north-facing house would give him the coveted 10-star full marks. Bocskay has earned the stars through double-glazing throughout the house, natural ventilation through the use of thermal chimneys ‘‘that purge the house of hot air’’, recycled flooring, solar hot water, and rainwater for toilets, washing and outdoor irrigation. The highly insulated house has environmentally friendly bamboo panelling on the staircase, a compost heap being constructed in the backyard, and a vegetable garden on the way. ‘‘We are saving at least $1500 a year on our electricity bills, and then there are the water savings,’’ Bocskay says. ‘‘We don’t have to do without. We can do more with less.’’ Bocskay’s passion began when, after training as a social scientist at

RMIT, he worked as an outdoor educator who spent 200 days a year in a tent. ‘‘ You don’t have a choice but to admire the world you live in.’’ He believes everyone can do their bit at home. ‘‘As a student, I used to be a bike courier, and I used to build bowling lanes,’’ says Bocskay. ‘‘Now I have them in my home.’’ HARBANT GILL hgill@mmpgroup.com.au

PROFILE SCOTT BOCSKAY, 37 LIVES: St Kilda East WHAT I LOVE ABOUT ST KILDA: I love that it’s close to so much. We walk down to the beach, we are close to the city, I love Carlisle Street, you’ve got it all out there. WHAT I WOULD CHANGE: Celebrate the heritage of the houses. Also, I’d like to see more parkland and street gardens.

alloween came to Luna Park with staff and punters donning makeup, capes, wigs and anything else that looked remotely scary. Let’s face it, though, when it comes to Melbourne’s much-loved theme park, nothing is as frightening as some of the rides. CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT “Bring on Halloween!” cried Tymika, 5, Kyle, 6, and Zander, 4. Amanda Freestone and Ben Griffiths put a moody, wintry face on the Spring Carnival. Arts student Matt Harvey recently had a crash course in theatrical makeup while directing a play that required characters to look beaten up. I reckon he’s got talent. Eight-year-old Indigo was all excited before entering the ghost train with her dad, Andrew Lee. Afterwards, it was he who admitted to being a bit frightened. Monica Smith only had eyes for the Scenic Railway. Ticket seller Kaitlyn Clare might look slightly scary, but she’s a big softy; her favourite ride is the carousel.

INSEPARABLE: Elissa Stephens and Sinead Reid at the King of Tonga

We met about eight years ago. I was a client of Sinead’s when she was working from home in May Street. I thought she was adorable and we got on instantly. She’s just so friendly with everyone. I invited her to my 30th, which is a bit weird when you’re spread-eagled naked [getting a wax]. We speak almost every day on the phone and our Friday nights are sacred. We head to the King of Tonga bar in Elwood, which is halfway between our houses, then back to my place because my beaglier Cinnamon’s a big part of our friendship too – Sinead’s her godmother. We didn’t see each other for a week recently, then it was like she’d come back from the war! We’ve never fallen out because whenever anything has happened, we talk about it straight away. We always discuss Sinead’s

business and share our ideas. I even did a rap for her at the launch of her salon. We’ve helped each other through lots of tough times, lots of break-ups. Sinead came to the bar recently, panicked, because her landlord was selling the flat. The thought of her moving away was so distressing for both of us. But it was such a joy when she told me she’d found a new flat on the same street.

SINEAD I see people all the time as a beauty therapist, and it doesn’t happen very often but the first time I met Lissie I thought she was really cool. We met a few times after that and I always get a bit nervous because it’s crossing that client/therapist boundary; it’s almost like asking someone out on a date, but Lissie invited me to her 30th. We go to the King of Tonga every Friday and obviously it’s very busy so we’ll be chatting to everyone,

and after about two drinks we’ll be looking at each other and going, ‘‘Are you ready to go?’’ Everyone knows we need a bit of “us time”. At the launch for my salon, Lissie was front of house explaining everything. She made up a rap especially for me that she shared with the new clients! With Lissie, you know there’s no expectation. We’re just there for each other. I was worried when I had to move, but when I found a new place I measured the steps and it was actually five seconds quicker to get to her place!

Dr. Tony Stubbs Eye Surgeon MB BS BSc(Hons)B Med Sc MS FRANZCO Dr. Tony Stubbs, Eye Surgeon, of The Williamstown Eye Centre says that just about anyone can have their vision restored and be rid of their glasses for almost all the time. And this is without the use of laser surgery. Dr Stubbs, a visiting specialist at the Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital who has worked with the Fred Hollows eye department at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, says he began his career through the inspiration of his father, Dr Maxwell Stubbs. “My father was a pioneer in cataract implant surgery and I did my training under him. He passed away three years ago but some of his patients still come in for a check-up. Not only is this inspirational, it also demonstrates that good surgery outlasts the surgeon,” Dr Stubbs says. A specialist who helps people who have been advised they are unsuitable for laser surgery, Dr Stubbs is also committed to demonstrating that age, corneal distortion or astigmatism are no barriers to eliminating the need for glasses. “One of my best moments was treating a 12-year-old girl who was struggling at school because of poor vision, even with the use of thick glasses. Now 10 years later, she still has 20/20 vision without glasses. That inspires me. “Seeing my patients’ bright smiles after surgery, as they stop squinting and can read without glasses, is definitely the best part of my job.” No referral is needed and no out-of-pocket expenses are incurred for an assessment to enable all options available to be considered.

STEPHEN MCKENZIE

Runs galore in Port’s flying start to season BY DANIEL PAPROTH dpaproth@mmpgroup.com.au IT’S FAIR to say Port Melbourne has made a solid start to the summer baseball season with four games, four wins and a lazy 64 runs. That’s 15 better than the team’s nearest rival, Moorabbin. But coach Vic Brown is ensuring the players aren’t getting ahead of themselves, particularly with last season’s premiers, Doncaster, also in ominous form again – 45 runs in three games and just three conceded. “Doncaster is by far the strongest team at the moment,” Brown says. “Most of their starting nine represent Victoria and three or four represent Australia. No one’s got near them.” Brown, 29, also rates Malvern and Springvale – whose bid for a fourth straight title ended in a 19-5 loss to Doncaster in last season’s grand final – as two teams to watch. “Hopefully we can have good

games against those two sides and then go from there.’’ Port Melbourne lost several players over the off-season, including starting pitcher, starting shortstop and a state representative, but regained the services of Mel Gregory. Gregory had been the non-playing coach of the team for the past few years but with Brown stepping into the role this season Gregory decided to play again. A former Australian and Victorian representative, she has been the starting pitcher and Brown says getting her back was a big acquisition. “Having a former state level pitcher has been a huge gain for us,” she says. “With the reduced level of responsibility she felt it was time to get back into playing. “The coaching also gave her shoulder injury she got snowboarding in 2007 an opportunity to recover.” With the exodus of talented play-

ers Brown says Port Melbourne had to go on a frantic recruiting drive before the season began. “We had to recruit madly,’’ she says. ‘‘We got out f lyers, put the word out on Facebook, got players speaking to family and friends, work colleagues, and it’s been quite successful.” Two of the recruits were new to the sport and Brown says the rookies have picked up the game quickly. One of them, Awombda Codd, was most valuable player in the 26-0 win over Bundoora in round four. “She took a screaming catch in left field, had three hits and batted in three runs,” Brown says. Port Melbourne’s next game is against Waverley on November 10. ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

BRIEFS

Saints’ fightback falls just short ARI HATZIS

BY DANIEL PAPROTH dpaproth@mmpgroup.com.au A REMARKABLE fightback by St Kilda gave Prahran a mighty scare in the Premier Cricket clash at Toorak Park on Saturday. Prahran began the second day of the match in a strong position after winning the toss on day one, sending in the Saints in bowlerfriendly conditions and dismissing them for just 84. But Prahran captain Sam Coates decided not to continue batting on day two, instead declaring 83 ahead at 8/167 and going for the outright victory. And he’d have been feeling very confident as the Saints lost openers Matthew Frith and Josh Manning cheaply to be 2/13. The big wicket of skipper Graeme Rummans soon followed, adjudged leg before wicket to Steven Singh for five, and suddenly St Kilda was 3/20. Then Daniel Forbes strolled to the crease. In 140 balls the middle-order batsman, who had scored only 38 runs in five previous innings this season, made a crucial 97 before falling LBW to Bryce McGain. His 94-run partnership with Andrew McGuinness (22 from 80), took St Kilda to 149 before McGuinness was leg before to McGain – Prahran’s best bowler with 4-61 off 20, all four wickets LBW. From there the Saints scored another 60 to be bowled out for 209, leaving Prahran with a target of

■ ELWOOD IN STRIFE Elwood is in trouble in the twoday game against reigning premiers East Sandringham Boys Club in the City Of Moorabbin Cricket Association. Sent into bat, Elwood was bowled out for 91 as Jayme Saleem tore through the lineup with 5-29 from 19 overs. East Sandringham will resume at 2/33 on Saturday. ■ AJAX CLEANED UP Maccabi AJAX’s third XI was soundly beaten by Monash Uni Gryphons in the Mercantile Cricket Association. Monash Uni batted its and made 7/207 from its 45 overs, with half-centuries to Chirag Desai and Rahul Jhaveri. Maccabi was bowled out for just 95 in the 29th. Nathan West took 6-31 from nine overs.

AND THAT’S OUT: St Kilda’s Tom Moffat is bowled by Prahran’s Rhys Adams for 22 126 in 20 overs. But the home side could only struggle to 6/90 before time ran out. Adam Bull (20) and Steven De Bolfo (18) top-scored for the True Blues in their second innings, while St Kilda’s hopes grew with each wicket thanks mainly to Charlie Ross (3-44) and Daniel Mueller (2-41).

The win sees Prahran climb higher inside the top eight with three wins and two losses, while St Kilda slips down with two wins and three losses. The second XI match was drawn, with Prahran reaching 9/220 in reply to St Kilda’s 271 last week. Prahran would have been better placed but for the remarkable

117-run partnership between numbers 10 and 11 Jak Jowett (57 not out) and Blade Baxter (58) ensured the Saints posted a formidable total. Matt Wilcox was Prahran’s topscorer with 83, but the total proved too great. Prahran won the third and fourth XI matches on first innings. Scoreboard, Page 22

■ OFF TO A FLYER Port Melbourne made a terrific start in its two-day match against Dingley in the VTCA, racking up 7/312 in the first innings. Champion batsman Matt Daykin recovered from his king pair against Chelsea in the previous match with 119 from fewer than 100 balls. New recruit Josh Dearing batted patiently for 46.

In-form Demons give Students a caning UNBEATEN Melbourne sits on top of the Premier Cricket ladder after a big victory on the second day of the match against Melbourne University on Saturday. The Students resumed at 0/16 in reply to Melbourne’s 7/277 on the first day, but were soon in trouble at 2/28 as opener Thomas Polkinghorne went early and Michael Clements followed soon after, both for seven. It became evident early that University would struggle as the Demons’ tight bowling ensured the run rate was kept down. Jarrod Leggett, who chiselled out 48 in more than two hours of grafting, and Daniel Hutton (18) put on

56 for the third wicket to give them something of a sniff, but . But the wicket of Hutton sparked a collapse and University collapsed to 9/159. Mark Simpson (run out for 51) and a last-wicket stand of 34 between Mark Stafford (11 not out) and Greg Kennedy (23) dragged Uni’s score to 193, but Melbourne ended up winning by 84 runs. Leg-spinner Brenton McDonald backed up his unbeaten 64 of the previous week with 4-54 from 21.4 overs and Melbourne captain Andrew Kent said he was firing on all cylinders. ‘‘He must be in the best-performed players in the competition at the

moment,’’ he said. ‘‘He is consistent with bat and ball and he seems to be developing more and more in terms of searching for wickets.’’ Melbourne will travel to Merv Hughes Oval over the next fortnight to take on Footscray-Edgewater, which has several in-form batsmen. Captain Dean Russ already has 245 runs this season, with two centuries, while Wes Robinson has three halfcenturies, Ben Green two and Travis Dean one. ‘‘It will be a tough game,’’ Kent said. ‘‘Their top order is extremely strong and it’s another challenge for us. But we are going pretty well at the moment.’’

■ BOROUGH’S DEAL VFL club Port Melbourne has announced its membership packages for the 2013 season. Most packages offer free entry to home games, access to social facilities and voting rights at the AGM. As an added bonus, 2013 members can also purchase the book The Perfect Season, on the club’s unbeaten 2011 season, for just $40. All details at pmfc.com.au. ■ POWER STAYS UP Power House will remain in Division 3 of the Victorian Amateur Football Association in 2013 after Rupertswood left the association to play in the Riddell League. Rupertswood’s departure left the Premier C grade with an uneven number of teams, so relegated Power House was reinstated. ■ MEET AND GREET SFL club St Kilda City will hold its annual general meeting and a meet-the-coach night at St Kilda RSL from 6.30pm on November 9. New coach Gavin Mahony will outline plans for season 2013. Details: visit the club’s website at stkildacity.com.
