HOWARD’S END PROMOTER Nick Haines and music historian Andrea Baker are among the 1500 signatories to a petition to name a St Kilda lane after local punk legend Rowland S. Howard. The late guitarist with seminal Melbourne punk band The Birthday Party used the path linking Eildon Road and Jackson Street daily before he succumbed to liver cancer in 2009 aged 50. ‘‘Why not honour an Australian icon?’’ Haines asked.

News Editor Gordon Farrer

n this International Women’s Day, the world celebrates its women and their remarkable achievements. This day also prompts us to reflect on the year that’s been and look ahead to understand what’s required to advance gender equality. UN Women is a global champion of women and girls and was established to accelerate progress on meeting their rights worldwide. Our theme for International Women’s Day 2013 is ‘‘Ending Violence against Women’’. Global media has been rife recently with shocking instances of violence against women and this issue remains a blight all around the world, including Australia. One in three women worldwide will experience violence in her lifetime. And, in Australia, violence against women will cost the economy $15 billion, as 750,000 women are expected to report family violence. This year, funds raised during our International Women’s Day Campaign nationally will go towards the Critical Services Initiative in Papua New Guinea which provides services and support for women and children experiencing violence. These services include emergency hotlines and safe housing, emergency health care and contraception, mental health counselling and legal assistance. UN Women launched this initiative in 2011 as violence against women in PNG occurs at almost pandemic levels, with 67 per cent of the female population reporting as victims of domestic violence.

The low education rates and the lack of independent economic means entrench women’s dependency on their partners and families, reducing the ability to leave violent relationships and seek help. To mark International Women’s Day 2013, Papua New Guinea Justice Catherine Davani will address the topic of violence against women at a Melbourne breakfast

hosted by UN Women Australia on Tuesday, March 12, at the Melbourne Convention Centre. You can support UN Women in championing the rights of women and girls by becoming a member and attending events and general meetings.

Police call in help to quell rampage

Neighbours fear dock upgrade

BY BEAU DONELLY

FAMILIES will be the losers when works to transform Webb Dock into the city’s third container terminal begin this month, according to Albert Park MP Martin Foley. The Baillieu government gave the Port of Melbourne redevelopment the green light late last month after granting planning approval for works to start at Webb Dock. The $1.6 billion development will help meet growing trade demands and deliver 1100 direct and 1900 indirect jobs, according to the government. Webb Dock is expected to handle more than a million shipping containers a year when it becomes operational in late 2016. The government said landscaped buffers and noise walls would be installed to reduce the impact on nearby residents. But Mr Foley says residents’ concerns about noise limits, light spills, empty container stacks, hours of operation, truck and freight movement and environmental standards had been ignored. “These all need to be in the proposal from the ground up,” he said. Port of Melbourne chief executive Stephen Bradford said the next phase of consultation with residents would start in April. He said high importance was placed on enhancing the amenity of neighbouring communities, including installing noise walls along Todd Road. BEAU DONELLY

A GROUP of revellers who have terrorised St Kilda streets over the past six months have “escalated” their anti-social behaviour, prompting police to call in an African community liaison officer from outer Melbourne in a bid to quell the violence. Police have responded to a “series of incidents” outside the Tongue and Groove nightclub on Grey Street since late last year. Up to 150 patrons have been reported congregating in surrounding streets

after attending African-themed events held on Saturday nights at the club. Police are concerned that some members of the group have become increasingly violent after three officers were assaulted in two separate clashes with revellers last month. “Over the past six months we’ve had a number of incidents around closing time with the disembarking of patrons on to the street,” said Port Phillip Police Inspector Paul Breen. “In the last three weeks that’s starting to escalate.” On February 24, more than 45

police were called after nightclub security reported intoxicated patrons brawling in Grey Street. St Kilda Sergeant Amanda Douglas said about 50 people were reported “causing serious issues”. “When police got there, bottles were being thrown and the street had to be closed,’’ she said. ‘‘It took about an hour for police to disperse the group and clear the area.” A female police officer was hit by a bottle and suffered a cut shoulder, and a male officer was spat at. St Kilda resident and bartender Ethan McLaren said he was accosted walking home from work about 3am.

“I was trying to film it on my phone and they saw me,” he said. “About 40 people started throwing bottles. The police were really under the pump. This has been going on for a while but the last six weeks have been bad.” Mr Breen has sought help from Victoria Police’s New and Emerging Community Liaison Officer, saying he believed most of those involved lived outside Port Phillip and were of African descent. He stressed that a minority of the group was responsible for the poor behaviour. ‘‘We’ll be seeking an explanation from the management at the venue,” he said.

St Kilda’s Rob Bruce and Toorak’s Lisa Hennessy from the Bay Rays swim team are preparing for their first Giants of the Bay challenge. The 30-kilometre swim on Saturday, March 9, from Portarlington to Point Lonsdale, is the longest in Australia. The six-person Bay Rays team has had its training sessions at Brighton Yacht Club to prepare for the event. Giants of the Bay raises money to fight autism and is considered good preparation for marathon swims such as crossing the English Channel.

VOX POP WOULD YOU RENT OUT YOUR HOUSE DURING THE GRAND PRIX? NOELLE O’BRIEN, Middle Park No. I don’t think so. We did get some brochures last year through the door about renting it, but we decided not to. We haven’t got anywhere else to go. I wouldn’t move out of my home for a weekend.

PHILLIP STEWART, St Kilda No. I have the space, but I think the bother of people coming over a short period of time and invading my space, and for me to get it all ready ... for the money, it’s just not worth the effort.

ALLAN MURPHY, South Melbourne No I wouldn’t. Because they are here to party, so you could imagine the state they would leave your house in. They would upset the quietness.

Race on for rent at a grand price

BY LAURA BANKS lbanks@mmpgroup.com.au MORE than 100,000 people visited Port Phillip beaches over summer, figures reveal. Life Saving Victoria statistics last week showed 106,548 people visited Elwood, Port Melbourne, Sandridge, South Melbourne and St Kilda beaches during summer – 11,485 more than last year. February was the biggest month for rescues, with 70 major incidents including 43 at Sandridge beach. There were 107 major incidents across the five beaches between December 1 and February 28. Elwood was the most popular beach, with 41,862 visitors, followed by St Kilda with 33,668. Water Police Acting Senior Sergeant David Jaensch said:“Generally the alcohol side of it has been very good and safety gear compliance was pretty good as well. Most of our problems and offences are for speeding in restricted area zones.” He said most complaints related to personal watercraft.

NOT everyone in Port Phillip likes the grand prix, but more than a few are willing to cash in on it. With demand for accommodation near the track growing as the race date approaches, residents who prefer to escape the noise and inconvenience of the event are listing their homes for short-term rental. Classified websites including Gumtree and Airbnb feature a yearround offering of private rooms, houses and apartments available from Port Melbourne to Elwood, but in the lead-up to the March 14-17 event, many ads are spruiking to Formula 1 fans. At the time of going to press there were more than 140 listings on the two sites advertising accommodation near the track in Albert Park. Many rates are competitive as homeowners tailor their pitch to

steal business from nearby hotels. “Over six nights the cost works out to $200 per night,” says an ad listed by criminal lawyer and St Kilda resident Chris Terry. “That’s a lot cheaper than any hotels in the area during race week.” Mr Terry said renting out his twobedroom Eildon Street apartment for the week of the grand prix would help pay the mortgage. “We rented the place out last year for $350 a week when we went overseas,” he said. “I thought I’d try again because of the Grand Prix” Of 10 randomly selected hotels within walking distance to the racetrack, six were fully booked from March 14 to 17. The others ranged from $200 to $500 a night.

Naming honours bid for rock icon BY HARBANT GILL hgill@mmpgroup.com.au

A PROPOSAL to name a St Kilda lane after guitarist Rowland S. Howard, who used it every day in his last decade, will be submitted to the Port Phillip council this week. More than 1500 signatures have been collected to support the plan to name the lane, which links Eildon Road to Jackson Street, in honour of the musician who died aged 50 of liver cancer in 2009. Howard achieved acclaim as a

member of the seminal Melbourne punk band The Birthday Party and was in bands such as The Young Charlatans, These Immortal Souls, and Crime & The City Solution. Music promoter and Jackson Street resident Nick Haines, who spearheaded the proposal, said he would soon receive ‘‘the final piece in the puzzle’’, a letter of support from Howard’s former Birthday Party bandmate Nick Cave. Among the signatories are Howard’s family and close friends, community members, actor Noah

Taylor and musicians including Mick Harvey of the Bad Seeds, Shane MacGowan from The Pogues and The Popes, and Lee Ranaldo from Sonic Youth. ‘‘Rowland is a St Kilda icon and known around the world for being a unique amazing guitarist. Why not honour an Australian icon?’’ Mr Haines said. ‘‘He played his first gig at The Crystal Ballroom, his last gig at the Prince of Wales, and this lane is about halfway.’’ Music historian Dr Andrea Baker,

who lives in Eildon Road where Howard lived in his last 10 years, said he had changed the history of music in Australia. ‘‘We want to preserve the cultural history of St Kilda,’’ she said. ‘‘It will be the seed towards a rock walk, a cultural heritage book and a museum.’’ Port Phillip deputy mayor Serge Thomann said: ‘‘We are waiting for the paperwork to make a final decision. Rowland has definitely made a mark in this city.’’ See Over the Fence, page 12

New father claims hospital’s actions ‘irresponsible’ A FATHER was forced to leave the state’s busiest maternity hospital within hours of his daughter’s birth because it was outside visiting times. Nimrod Weis said he was asked to leave the Royal Women’s Hospital after his first child was born about 5.30am on February 13 and told to return when visiting hours resumed at 8am. Mr Weis, who had been with his wife since they arrived at the hospital the previous night, was told to leave by two midwives after his wife and baby were transferred from the birthing suite to a single room. He drove home to St Kilda East after 24 hours without sleep. “They told me visiting hours hadn’t started and that partners weren’t allowed to stay,” he said.

“But I wasn’t in a position to drive and it was irresponsible for the hospital to let me on the road.” Hospital spokeswoman Sofia Dedes said the hospital considered overnight stays by partners on a case-by-case basis. Acting Health Services Commissioner Dr Grant Davies said each hospital had ‘‘the right to manage their work environment in any way it sees fit’’. Hospital staff said new fathers were sometimes prevented from staying with partners in shared rooms because of operational reasons or cultural sensitivities. But Mr Weis said he should have been allowed to stay with his wife because she had her own room. “There’s a lot of emphasis on the importance of the father being there and taking his role seriously, which I do, and the hospital isn’t catering for that at all,” he said.

A FEAST of Japanese culture and music will come to St Kilda next week with a concert to help Japanese students affected by the 2011 tsunami. March 11 marks two years since the environmental disaster hit eastern Japan, where many people are still unable to return to their homes. The fund-raising concert and silent auction will be held this Monday, on the anniversary. Money raised will help fund a visit to Melbourne by 12 students from Fukushima. The students will learn about environmental issues and enjoy a break from the stressful radioactive environment they still have to live with. The concert lineup includes Adam Ueda Soko Chanoyu performing a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, Anne Norman playing the shakuhachi (Japanese flute) and drum and flute ensemble Fuefukuro. The event is on at Wabi Sabi Garden, 17 Wellington Street, St Kilda on March 11, from 4pm7pm. People can donate online at http://support fukushimakids2013.blogspot. com.au/.

LOCAL BEAT SOUTH MELBOURNE

STREET LEVEL

Three people were taken to hospital after a collision on Kings Way in the early hours of February 21. Two cars collided near the intersection of Queens Road after a car heading outbound along Kings Way allegedly ran a red light just after 1am. A preliminary breath test indicated the driver was intoxicated, police said. The driver, passenger, and the driver of the other vehicle were all treated for serious but nonlife threatening conditions and taken to hospital. A 39-year-old North Melbourne man is expected to be charged with serious traffic offences.

SOUTH MELBOURNE Four motorbikes were stolen from the South Melbourne site where Channel Nine’s new series of The Block is being filmed. Police said three Suzuki dirt bikes and a Suzuki quad bike, total value $36,000, were stolen from the car park of the former Biz Motel on Park Street between 10pm on February 21 and 3am on February 22. Police suspect bolt cutters were used to remove a chain linking the bikes. A spokesman for The Block said security had been upgraded since the theft.

OPERATION HALO UPDATE Police detected 116 offences around Port Phillip during a four-day operation aimed at reducing road trauma. Operation Halo, which also targeted Melbourne, Yarra, Boroondara and Stonnington, detected 1950 offences between February 19 and 22. In Port Phillip there were 90 car and truck, 16 bicycle, seven pedestrian and three motorcycle offences. Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill said police would continue to conduct operations to protect vulnerable road users.

ALBERT AND MIDDLE PARK Police received reports that more than 50 cars were broken into around Albert Park and Middle Park in February. Police said many of the vehicles, which were targeted overnight in the area south of Kerferd and Canterbury roads, showed no sign of forced entry. Police suspect thieves may be using a device to break into the cars that does not leave a trace of forced entry. Stolen items include GPS, laptops, sunglasses and cash.

ELWOOD

PORT MELBOURNE A police pursuit along Beaconsfield Parade was called off on February 24 after the motorcycle being chased clocked speeds of up to 130 km/h. Police were forced to abandon the pursuit, which began about 12.30am after the rider yelled expletives at officers while driving past on Pier Road. Police did manage to get the rider’s registration details and are making further inquiries.

REPORT CRIME E ppers call Crime Stoppers 0 1800 333 000

Sex crimes detectives are appealing for witnesses to an indecent assault of a 23-year-old woman in Elwood on February 26. Police believe the victim was waiting at the front gate of an apartment block on Southey Street when she was approached from behind by a man at about 10.45pm. Investigators were told the man lifted her skirt and indecently assaulted her. The Elwood woman hit the offender with a shopping bag before he fled the scene, running south on Southey Street. He was last seen driving away in a blue sedan. The man is described as Caucasian, aged in his late 20s, about 165cm tall with a thin build and short blonde hair.

Millions needed to top up super BY LAURA BANKS lbanks@mmpgroup.com.au

PORT Phillip council must contribute $10.87 million to top up a now closed local government superannuation scheme, but mayor Amanda Stevens says there will be no impact on rates. The Victorian government set up the compulsory Local Authorities Superannuation Fund 30 years ago to provide for local government and water authority workers in retirement. Although the fund was closed after a decade, Victorian councils are legally bound to pay for remaining members. There is currently a fund shortfall of $453 million, which needs to be made up by councils and water authorities by July 1 this year. The defined benefits superannuation scheme applies to all those

employed in local government prior to 1994. Port Phillip mayor Amanda Stevens said the council continued to contribute to the scheme in line with superannuation legislation. “Council will be addressing this cost in our long-term plan with no impact on future rates, borrowing, savings or major projects. “We have managed to do this by achieving an operating surplus, caused by strong financial management and a very short-term deferment of some capital works.” The fund prescribed benefits based on how long an employee had been a fund member and on their salary at retirement. The amount of the liability is based on the number of employees Port Phillip council currently employs and the number of former employees still covered by the scheme.

Ricketts Point marine centre bid

Treatment on the number

BY TERESA MURPHY tmurphy@mmpgroup.com.au

BY DAN MOSS

A MARINE science centre is being mooted for Ricketts Point at the Beaumaris Yacht Club. The club has formed a small consortium with volunteer group Marine Care Ricketts Point and RMIT to investigate establishing an environmentally sensitive facility that would foster marine science, sailing and associated community interests. It would be known as the Marine Environment Science and Com-

munity Centre (MESAC). A key focus would be marine research at university student and ‘‘citizen science’’ levels. Facilities for disabled divers and snorkellers would be an important part of the centre as Ricketts Point marine sanctuary is the most accessible dive spot in Port Phillip Bay for people in wheelchairs. There are no plans to expand the footprint of the yacht club building but a new design would take into account the threat of sea level rises and other effects of climate change.

It would be energy efficient and suit the natural surroundings of the Beaumaris foreshore. A marine research centre has long been the dream of Ray Lewis OAM, the immediate past president of Marine Care and now chairman of the MESAC committee. Three years ago he proposed a much grander vision to Bayside council, but he is now focused on a much subtler approach he hopes will appeal to all stakeholders. ‘‘This new project will be at a higher level, catering for university

student research, a full-time scientific presence,’’ he said. Marine Care’s new president, Michael Coleman, hopes MESAC will be up and running within 10 years. ‘‘We know it will take some time – but just look at what has been achieved with marine sanctuary in the past 10 years,’’ he said. Bayside council will consider the project as part of its Ricketts Point management strategy, now on exhibition for public feedback. Visit bayside.vic.gov.au.

Funding boost for crossings School crossings will get a boosted $10.46 million next financial year which will increase the number of crossing guards by 146 statewide. The move puts to rest fears some crossing guard placements will be cut. Transport Minister Terry Mulder told state parliament last week that speculation some crossings would not get guards was ‘‘irresponsible’’. Frankston schools and the Frankston council claimed their crossing guards would be cut as some crossings didn’t have enough pedestrians using them to meet VicRoads criteria to have a crossing guard. Several government MPs have reported that statewide 2797 crossing guard placements have been ‘‘secured’’ and their electorates have been given a funds boost. Frankston MP Geoff Shaw and Carrum MP Donna Bauer said a $14,000 increase will be budgeted next financial year to fund an extra three guards, bringing the total to 70. Prahran MP Clem NewtonBrown said Stonnington council will receive $36,000 to fund an extra 11 crossing guards bringing the total to 61 in 2013-14. Caulfield MP David Southwick said Glen Eira will get an extra $14,000 for two guards bringing the total to 67. This financial year $9.7 million was budgeted for school crossing subsidies.

BUDDHISTS’ BIG DAY Brighton’s Buddhist community will throw open its doors for a Tibetan cultural day next weekend. Bayside’s only Buddhism centre, the Tara Institute, will hold an open day on March 17 from 10.30am to 4pm. The eventis at the centre’s Landcox House base and will include lunch, face painting, crafts and a Tibetan market. Spiritual program coordinator Lozang Lhamo (pictured) said the day was an opportunity to learn about Buddhism and tour the historic Landcox property. Details tarainstitute.org.au.

MARCH 6, 2013

THE Alfred hospital is treating fewer emergency patients within set time limits while maintaining standards of care for urgent patients. Category one patients, those who are assessed to need immediate treatment, were seen straight away 100 per cent of the time. But patients in category two in the December 2012 quarter were seen within the set timeframe of 10 minutes 76 per cent of the time, down 10 per cent. Less serious category three patients were seen within set timeframes of 30 minutes only 67 per cent of the time, a drop of 11 per cent. Hospital statistics for the September and December quarters of 2012 were released last week following a state opposition campaign for their publication. Statewide, the hospital system met its target of getting patients admitted from an ambulance 77.4 per cent of the time in the December 2012 quarter. So-called ambulance ramping occurs when emergency departments can’t take on new patients, usually because they are full. Ambulances are forced to wait with their patients until a bed becomes available. At The Alfred, ramping occurred 21 per cent of the time, up from 15.1 per cent in the 2011 December quarter. Elective surgery patients suffered a statewide drop in the number of procedures done on time in the 2012 December quarter. But The Alfred bucked the trend, increasing to 93 per cent the number of its elective surgery patients admitted within time. The statistics will be seen in the context of a fight between Victoria and the federal government which cut $107 million from the state health system. Health Minister David Davis said the lists grew because hospitals anticipated cuts. “The ongoing funding restrictions will mean that in future even more people will be forced to wait longer for their surgery,” he said.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ NOT SO GRAND When Albert Park MLA Martin Foley’s party was in government, neither he nor his party vigorously campaigned for the removal/ relocation of the grand prix from a public park, Albert Park. The then-much lauded event that was supposedly to benefit Melburnians and place our city on the global map as a desirable tourist destination, is costing us (the taxpayers) more money than we could ever imagine. Think of the hospitals, schools and other public utilities that could have been provided, had the state not injected funds to mount such an ecologicallychallenged gladiatorial spectacle. As a constituent of Mr Foley’s, I will vote for him at the next state election if he promises to commit to remove the GP when his party returns to government at the next election. There’s a prevailing thinking that governments of all persuasions spend more time playing politics rather than the greater good for all. The removal

of the GP is one that will benefit many rather than profit the few. Alex Njoo / St Kilda

■ MORE OF THE SAME Let’s have more good news like this (‘‘Mission possible’’, RL, February 20), especially when so many ordinary men and women are getting involved in volunteer work, often low-profile and unrecognised, whether with church organisations like Vinnies or Uniting Care or with smaller neighbourhood groups. Most of these never make the headlines or feature in the media, so a bit of encouragement is appreciated. In New Zealand, where I come from, this type of community action has been a proud tradition for a long time. James / via website ■ THINK OF THE TREES In summer, with temperatures over 30 degrees for days at a time, people should look past their front fences and remember to water the suffering trees on their nature strips,

especially young trees that have not yet established deep roots. I keep a bucket in the corner of my shower, and when it is full that reminds me to pour it on the tree out the front. Owen E / via email

QUOTABLE THE REMOVAL OF THE GP IS ONE THAT WILL BENEFIT MANY RATHER THAN PROFIT THE FEW. Alex Njoo / St Kilda

■ SHHH, PEOPLE TRAVELLING The V/Line trial of quiet carriages should be extended to all of Melbourne’s public transport. The daily commute is an irritating and stressful cacophony of mobile phone tech noises, loud one-way conversations, endlessly chattering schoolgirls, abrasive loudspeaker announcements and doof-doof coming from the earphones of the dude slumped next to you.

Problems on the rise Broken glass. Graffiti. Bags of rubbish. It’s just another day at South Melbourne’s decrepit Emerald Hill Estate, writes BEAU DONELLY

PHOTOGRAPHS BY SCOTT MCNAUGHTON

T

wenty-four hours can be a long time for residents in the Emerald Hill Estate. Even before entering the 15-storey housing commission tower at 200 Dorcas Street tenants are forced to wait while the recently repaired automatic doors drag reluctantly across the floor. Once inside they’re likely to pass an alcohol or drug-affected person in the foyer, sometimes with a large dog on a lead. Sometimes there is no lead. A brass plaque mounted to the wall near the entrance commemorates the building’s grand opening 50 years ago but has been vandalised with thick white permanent marker. It’s a sign of what’s to come on a tour of the decrepit estate, which includes the tower looming over Dorcas Street as well as a cluster of low-rise units, known as “walk-ups”, and home to 306 people. The high-rise tenants always watch their step boarding the elevator; syringes, urine and faeces – animal and human – often greet them in the morning.There are security cameras in the lifts, but tenants say they don’t always work and aren’t regularly monitored. The walls and stairwells are stained by either fresh graffiti or a patchwork of paint covering old graffiti. Bags of rubbish are piled in corridors. Where there is a window there’s a good chance it’s broken. Cigarette smoke lingers in the air. Emerald Hill Estate may be just 100 metres from South Melbourne’s cafe hub, or a short trip to the city’s most expensive suburb, Albert Park, according to real estate consultants RP Data, but for many tenants who walk its narrow, fluorescent-lit corridors each day, all that is another world away. And after a couple of hot days over summer living in the estate can become unbearable. On the sixth floor, one tenant stands in her west-facing lounge room as the sun burns through thin black curtains on a 37-degree day. She hung the curtains after the vinyl roller blinds that came with her two-bedroom apartment ripped and fell down.They now lie clumped on the balcony. The blinds are just one of many complaints the tenant, who wished to remain anonymous, has about her apartment, the building and the Department of Human Services. 10 PORT PHILLIP REVIEW LOCAL

Others range from plaster peeling off the ceiling to a shotgun hole in the lounge room wall. “They fix nothing,” she says.“And they don’t give a damn about us.” The government would not provide details when asked about the number of requests for repairs made by tenants at the estate in the past 12 months. Housing Minister Wendy Lovell’s spokeswoman Alicia Byrne said all units in the high rise had been upgraded between 2000 and 2007. A maintenance guide near the elevators categorises a broken blind or a hole in the wall as a “non-urgent repair”.

Down the hall on level six third-generation tenant Craig Bryson stands near his balcony, overlooking a car park.The 45-yearold demonstrates how he uses a large ceramic pot to weigh down the broken roller blind in his lounge room.“It’s so stuffy,” he says.“You just have to get out of the building some days.”A pedestal fan is his only means of keeping cool in summer. Up on level 15, another tenant, Lizzy Hall turns on the oscillating portable airconditioner she bought for $90. Despite the heat, the 83-year-old doesn’t mind living on the top floor because she enjoys the view and likes to sunbathe on her balcony. It may also have something to with the venetian blinds and heavy curtains she installed to keep the heat out. “I would have died if I’d kept the other ones,” says Hall, who has lived at the estate for 34 years.“The smell of them, it was like burning plastic.” Hall, who volunteers at an Albert Park op-shop, had a heart attack in her apartment one November morning a couple of years ago while getting ready for work. She regained consciousness on her lounge room floor the next day and then had another heart attack. She does not believe the hot weather played a part in her ill-health, however.“It does get very hot and if you have heat for more than two days it can be unbearable,” she says.“But I don’t care. I’m just grateful to be here.” The tenants at Emerald Hill Estate don’t expect free airconditioning, but some say a lack of maintenance from the DHS for simple things like replacing broken blinds is just another symptom of living in a forgotten estate that has gone from bad to worse.

Their grievances could be shared by thousands of people living in 65,000 public housing properties across the state. In March, 2012 an audit of Victoria’s public housing system, which provides homes for 130,000 people, was labelled “critical” by former Auditor-General Des Pearson. According to the report, an estimated 10,000 properties (14 per cent) are nearing obsolescence or do not suit the needs of tenants.“Despite a growing need for housing support in our community, DHS has not set overarching direction for public housing or taken a strategic, comprehensive approach to managing this $17.8 billion property portfolio,” it stated.“The division’s lack of comprehensive asset management has meant missed opportunities to more strategically position the public housing portfolio.” The Victorian government is developing a state-wide social housing plan aimed at ensuring its sustainability, expected to be released later this year. However, there are no upgrades earmarked at Emerald Hill Estate. This comes as a devastating blow to some residents. Bryson has been living at the estate since he was five years old and remembers what it used to be like.“It was grouse,” he says.“These flats used to be the best and I wanted to stay here because it’s where I grew up, where my parents lived and where my grandparents lived.” Now, Bryson is too ashamed to have family and friends over. His oven doesn’t work and he’s been waiting for a month to have his fly screen repaired.At night he’s kept awake by a Rottweiler in the apartment below. Residents say their complaints about the dog have fallen on deaf ears. “The dog is driving everyone crazy because it barks and drags its metal bowl along the balcony all the time,” says Bryson. DHS confirmed tenants were allowed to keep small dogs at the estate if they notify the the department and if the animal doesn’t disturb neighbours. Back on level 15, Lizzy Hall recalls the oven she had installed three years ago.“It nearly killed me,” she says.“It was letting off carbon. A gas man came and he put his hands in the oven and they came out black. He rang [DHS] and had a few words with them and then he condemned the stove and the heater.” Both were replaced immediately, but Hall says the DHS “has gone about the majority of things the wrong way”. Many tenants describe drug bags,

syringes and spoons they find in common areas.“You’re lucky to get in a lift without stepping in vomit or urine and there’s been faeces found in the staircase,” says one. Others talk about the ‘‘jumpers’’, the people who have committed suicide from the high-rise tower. The numbers have decreased in recent years, they say, but for a while suicides at the estate were commonplace.The DHS refused to provide information about suicides.

A decade ago, Teresa Warren moved to the commission flats from St Kilda with her daughter as a high priority client. She’s now the vice-chairperson of the Emerald Hill Court Residents Association and wants police to run regular patrols of the corridors with sniffer dogs to crack down on drugs in the block. “There are a lot of drugs in this building,” she says, adding that graffiti is an ongoing problem too. “Some graffiti has been here for five years but they don’t deal with it. We’ve had to put up with offensive graffiti on every level.” Alicia Byrne said DHS regularly removed graffiti. Warren, who began treatment for bowel cancer last month, says living in the tower is “depressing and stressful”. “We’re being treated as secondrate citizens,” she says.“And in the last few years the conditions have got worse.” But she is careful not to kick up too much of a fuss when it comes to other tenants.“I’ve had to learn to keep my mouth shut,” she says.“You’ve got to think of your own safety and you can’t go around dobbing in your neighbours.” On February 12 a woman, believed to be a tenant, was sexually assaulted in one of the walk-ups.The 56-year-old was attacked in one of the communal laundries in the early evening. She sustained serious injuries and was taken to The Alfred hospital. As summer draws to an end, residents face another problem. Last year DHS disconnected the gas heaters that warm the high rise. A letter sent to residents in September explained it was “due to issues identified with the gas heating flue system”. Work to install the new hydronic heating system would begin in December 2012 or January 2013, the letter read, but that deadline has come and gone and, as winter approaches, residents fear they’ll be forgotten again.The latest forecast for work to begin on the new central heating system is the end of February.The department says it will be completed by mid-May, just in time for winter.

Residents at Emerald Hill Estate, who have been given small heaters in the meantime, aren’t convinced. “They give you an electric heater but that just doubles the electricity bill,” says Bryson.“Who’s got to pay for that?”

Nick is very outspoken and quite amusing at our meetings, helping to organise awesome Day by the Green lineups at the Bowlo as well as managing bands. He is also lobbying the City of Port Phillip to name the lane adjoining our two streets [Eildon and Jackson] Rowland S. Howard lane, to honour a St Kilda icon. In 2012 Nick and I, and other members of SKLMC, were involved in the City of Port Phillip’s roundtable discussions about the future of live music.

been enriched by knowing Nick. He is fun to have at meetings and I’m always fascinated about what he’s up to next.

NICK Andrea lives in the neighbouring street to me, and chatting with her after SKLMC meetings made me realise we shared a deep interest in music, history and politics. Andrea’s contribution to the SKLMC has been invaluable and a big help to me as she is focused and organised, and I can be quite the ADD sufferer at times. She has been particularly invaluable in her help with organising the final phase of the application for the naming of Rowland S. Howard lane. I like to think I have helped Andrea add to her knowledge of local music history as I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to that stuff. And she is such a willing student.

Her recent talk about the history of music festivals was fantastic, and so well researched. Also Andrea is what I would call a ‘‘glass half full, and it’s the nicest drink I’ve ever had’’ type of person whereas I can be ‘‘a glass is not only half empty but broken on the ground, I’ve cut myself on the shards of glass and now need a tetanus shot’’ type of person, so she is a great person to be around. My dog George “the Punk” is a great judge of character and took an instant liking to Andrea, and now jumps on her lap at every opportunity. HARBANT GILL hghill@mmpgroup.com.au

COMMON THREAD Student designer MICHELLE CATLING will honour her mentor, ROSEMARY MASIC, on the catwalk

I

n the professional world, mentors can play a significant role, although their efforts often go unseen. But at the Australian Academy of Design, fashion students are honouring their designer mentors. As part of this month’s L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, the academy’s gallery space will host Masters and Apprentices, a catwalk show and exhibition where the student-created garments are inspired by the designers. Final-year fashion design student Michelle Catling first looked to Rosemary Masic for guidance when she did work experience at Masic’s label Nevenka in October. “I had always loved Nevenka so I just called and asked if I could do work experience there,” Catling says.“I’ve always been drawn to Rosemary’s style; it’s a bohemian, feminine, flowy kind of chic which is my personal style, too.”

Catling then asked Masic to mentor her for the six-month Masters and Apprentices project. Masic says she gains a lot from mentoring.“You can never overestimate the energy that young, enthusiastic students can bring to your company,” she says. Catling’s inspiration and techniques for the three-piece collection she created are based on those that Masic incorporates into her Nevenka designs. However Catling, a finalist in the Long Gown category at last year’s Fashion Awards Australia, feels her future is in formal wear. “I have had to tone down what I usually do for this project,” she says. The project also opens students’ eyes to the realities of a highly competitive industry. “Students all want to have their own label,” Masic says.“They need to get as much experience as

BY DESIGN: Apprentice Catling and master Masic pool their talents

possible in business before they take that leap.” Masic says students need to put in the hard yards before enjoying the social side of fashion.“Be a sponge and learn, learn, learn.”

The opening night runway event is shaping up to be a glamorous, with evening wear master Alex Perry the keynote speaker. LEEYONG SOO lsoo@mmpgroup.com.au

cting can be all-engrossing, especially when you’re cast as a landmark character on Australia’s longest-running soap. But as Neighbours star James Mason has discovered, sometimes it’s useful to explore avenues beyond Erinsborough. “Acting for me is all about experience,” he says.“You actually learn best when you’re on stage or in front of the camera.” For the past four years, the actor (pictured centre) has played Chris Pappas, Neighbours’ first prominent gay male character. But after watching Wayne Tunks’s production of Things Not To Do After a Breakup, Mason, 22, was inspired to take to the stage. “I just loved the writing and I was able to really put myself in the characters’ shoes,” he says of Tunks’s production. Mason approached the dramatist – who also works as a storyliner on Neighbours – and asked if there was an upcoming role available.Within months, he was auditioning for Flame Trees, a play

inspired by the Cold Chisel song. Opening at Theatre Works on March 6, the play investigates the repercussions of a young arsonist’s actions.Tess confesses to lighting a fire which devastates a town and

kills her best friend. When she returns home from prison the town is still traumatised by the event. Her ex-boyfriend,Andy Sutton, is engaged to the local police sergeant and her grandmother has

denounced her publicly, demanding she leave town – an opinion shared by most of the town. Mason plays Matt Sutton, a CFA volunteer who also happens to be Andy’s brother.

“Being a firefighter, Matt holds a lot of hatred for what Tess did and the overall disaster it has caused,” says Mason.“But his pain and his anger come from a loved place. He’s looking out for people and trying to do what he perceives is right.” A personal experience with bushfires helped Mason tap into the psychology of Matt’s character. During the Black Saturday bushfires Mason’s family was evacuated from their house in Belgrave, with the fear they would lose everything. “I remember getting to the fireshelter and just feeling useless,’’ says Mason.“We had just grabbed our stuff and run. I would have liked to have done something about it.” The play’s themes make it a work that audiences can connect with, says Mason.“This play is very topical, especially during this time of year. Many people will be able to relate to the characters, especially if they have experienced it themselves.” FRANCESCA CARTER fcarter@mmpgroup.com.au

MARILYN WARREN As Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Victoria, the Honourable Marilyn Warren AC, QC, is a study in firsts – the first female Chief Justice of any state or territory in Australia and the first female articled clerk in public service in Victoria. Her achievements are numerous, among them being Lieutenant Governor of Victoria and chairwoman of the Judicial College of Victoria. In December she spoke out ins support of the legal aid system, arguing that the right to a fair trial was in jeopardy because of increaseing demand and insufficient funding. Why she’s influential: She didn’t just break through the glass ceiling, she smashed it.

JULIA GILLARD Whether you’re a fan or not, Julia Gillard’s mantle as one of the most powerful women in Australia is irrefutable. Australia’s first female prime minister has weathered more storms in her first term than any other PM in recent memory. Her unmarried and childless status has made her a target for those who want to paint her as uncaring or unable to understand family life. But she has managed to do what Kevin Rudd couldn’t – successfully push through reforms on the mining and carbon taxes and introduce a national disability insurance scheme that will improve the quality of life for

hundreds of thousands of people. Why she’s influential: For getting on with the job while those around her try to tear her down.

LESLIE CANNOLD Born and raised in the US, Leslie Cannold is recognised as one of Australia’s leading thinkers, feminists and ethicists. A vocal supporter of the pro-choice movement, Cannold offers considered, thought-provoking insights into seemingly complicated issues and has won applause for her work on gender discrimination and challenging the work/life balance. In 2011, Cannold was named the Australian Humanist of the Year, and continues her work to fight for women’s right to control their own bodies. Why she’s influential: For providing smart, considered ideas about society.

ANN PEACOCK Born into influence, the daughter of former Liberal leader Andrew Peacock and socialite Lady Susan Renouf, has become a leader of Melbourne’s society set in her own right. As manager of public relations at Crown Casino, Peacock has a little black address booked filled with the names and numbers

ustralian women have made huge strides since an International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen in 1910 came up with the idea of a day to honour the achievements of women around the world and recognise the struggle for equality. Australia has a female prime minister, a female governorgeneral, a female attorney-general and a smattering of women on the boards of our largest companies. But on the eve of the 2013 International Women’s Day, on March 8, it’s clear the battle for equality between the sexes is far from won. According to the latest figures Australian women earned 17 per cent less than men in 2012 and just 10 per cent of managerial positions and about 25 per cent of new board positions were held by women. Seven out of 10 federal and state parliamentarians are men – a ratio that hasn’t changed in 10 years. Men receive twice the number of awards and nominations than women for an Order of Australia, and female chief executives in the top 200 ASX listed companies remain below 5 per cent. What those statistics don’t show, however, is that Melbourne is teeming with fabulous, accomplished women, achieving great things in fields as diverse as arts, politics, fashion and social justice. Here are some of our city’s most inspiring examples.

the Windsor Hotel scandal and underworld crime stories. Before joining the rejuvenated 7.30, Taylor held other senior ABC positions including state political reporter for ABC TV, working on AM, PM and The World Today, and as associate producer on Insiders. Why she’s influential: Proving that female reporters can cover stories that don’t involve fluffy animals or celebrities.

No need for a flash when the smiling faces of Sam Gold and Shauna Bramich are lit up by their trusty mobile phone. Publicity girl Fiona Brook discusses the roaring success of White Night, sadly confessing she missed it. It looks as though Kath Desmyth is about to be rescued by the paws of life. Get it, ‘‘paws of life’’? No?

ADVERTISERS PLEASENOTE Much hardship and difficulty is caused to job-seekers by misleading advertising placed in employment columns. Our Professional Employment and Situations Vacant columns are reserved for advertisements which carry a SPECIFIC and GENUINE offer of employment. All employment advertisements must state clearly the type of job offered and remuneration offered. (i.e. salary package, retainer plus commission or commission only). "Commission only'' jobs are only accepted in these columns PROVIDED that this is clearly stated in the ad AND the employer is paying Workcover and Superannuation. If not, then these advertisements MUST be placed in an alternate classification such as Self Employment Opportunities.

Celebrations To advertise in the Celebrations section please contact us on

Placing misleading advertisements is an offence against the Competition and Consumer Act and all advertisements are subject to the publisher's approval. For further advice contact the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission on 9290 1800. Whilst Metro Media Publishing make every attempt to screen job advertisements, WE DO NOT ACCEPT LIABILIT Y FOR ADVERTISERS WHO FAIL TO C O M P LY W I T H T H E S E REGULATIONS.

Key player pads up to crack 40-year record BY DANIEL PAPROTH dpaproth@mmpgroup.com.au

FORMER Australian cricketer Shane Warne was the reason St Kilda wicketkeeper Damon Rowan got into cricket. So you can imagine how Rowan felt as he looked down the wicket to see his idol moving in to bowl during the few times that Warne played with the Saints when he didn’t have international commitments. ‘‘It was unbelievable to have that opportunity,’’ Rowan says. ‘‘It was a big deal and a fantastic experience. I got a few stumpings and catches off his bowling and he is just one of the lads, really good bloke.’’ Rowan is looking back on a long cricket career. At the weekend he played his 250th match and, should St Kilda make the grand final he will equal or break the club record of 252 games held by Norm Lynch for more than 40 years. While the record was not something Rowan had given much

thought to, he admits it’s playing on his mind. ‘‘I honestly hadn’t thought too much of it until the last couple of days when everyone started speaking about it,’’ he says. ‘‘It’s getting pretty nerve-wracking now with all the well-wishing.’’ Rowan was destined to join St Kilda Cricket Club. He played with his boarding school Caulfield Grammar, where former St Kilda and Victoria all-rounder Shawn Craig was coaching the first XI. With some Caulfield Grammar luminaries such as Nick Jewell playing at the club, ‘‘it all combined’’, Rowan says. The 34-year-old has been a big part of St Kilda’s success over the past decade. There have been five red ball premierships, four one-day flags and a Twenty20 title. ‘‘This club just loves success, that’s the great thing about it,’’ Rowan says. ‘‘They don’t accept failure and always play to win, that’s always been the club culture. And

the place keeps being rejuvenated too, when older players retire and younger ones come through.’’ One of those young players is James Muirhead, a leg-spinner who has taken the sixth-most wickets, 37, in the competition this year. ‘‘In my years he has been the closest thing that looks anything like Warnie,’’ Rowan says. ‘‘He has got the ability to be very good.’’ Rowan is closing in on 500 dismissals as a keeper and comfortably holds the club record. He hasn’t thought about retirement but says a premiership and the club games record would be a nice way to end the season. ‘‘The knees are starting to struggle a bit, not as good as they were a few years ago,’’ he says. ‘‘I haven’t put a full stop on it yet, though.’’

MATCH REPORT

BRIEFS

Saints stick to game plan ARI HATZIS

BY DANIEL PAPROTH dpaproth@mmpgroup.com.au

A CRACKING century from Ringwood opener Nathan Walsh was not enough to strike fear into the heart of St Kilda at the Junction Oval on Saturday. Ringwood, secure in the top four with only one day of the regular season remaining, reached 9/271 but on a pristine batting deck it may not be enough. Several 300-plus scores have been made at the Junction this season – St Kilda the best with 5/407 against Camberwell Magpies. On Saturday, the Saints needed to bounce back from an embarrassing outright loss to Geelong the week before and got off to a solid start to have Ringwood 2/12 and then 4/77. They had dangerous opener David King out for 1 and Tom Stray (3), Ian Holland (11) and Joseph Loorham (26) all back in the shed cheaply. When skipper Ben Osborne fell the score was teetering at 5/124. Enter Brendan Walsh, who, alongside his brother Nathan, put on 128 runs for the sixth wicket. Nathan was the more attacking of the pair, regularly dispatching balls to the boundary as Brendan played the defensive role at the other end. He was finally out caught behind off leggie James Muirhead after a 119-ball innings. Nathan followed shortly after, stumped by 250-game

■ SAINTS SHOW FORM St Kilda’s second XI is wellplaced against Ringwood after posting 9/315 on day one. Wicketkeeper Tom Morris fell nine runs short of a century while captain Chris Blake scored 76 at first drop. ■ RINGWOOD DIGS IN St Kilda’s third XI will need to chase at least 227 for victory against Ringwood. The Saints sent Ringwood into bat and claimed seven wickets as Ringwood dug in. Erishmiilan Uthayakumar took 3/40 from 19 overs to be the pick of the bowlers.

GAME CHANGER: St Kilda’s James Muirhead comes in to bowl veteran Damon Rowan for 131. Muirhead toiled for 35 overs and finished with four wickets. They came for 110 runs but Muirhead looked the most dangerous of the bowlers, inciting several shouts that were turned down. Once the Walsh brothers fell Ringwood lost 4/19 to lift St Kilda’s spirits. Ringwood should bat on this

weekend but save for a big lastwicket partnership it will be a target within reach for the Saints. “Par score at the Junction is 300 so we think we are well on track to get a victory,” said Muirhead after the day’s play. “The Walsh brothers put on a magnificent performance but as soon as we got one of them they had

a bit of a collapse. The key was to get one of them out and then get another as soon as possible.” Muirhead said he was pleased with his marathon effort. “Considering I’ve been feeling a little off lately I thought they came out 100 per cent,” he said. “It was good to get a fair few overs under my belt.”

Heat out of Frankston MELBOURNE looks poised to seal top spot on the Premier Cricket ladder after nearly securing firstinnings points on day one against Frankston Peninsula. Demons skipper Andrew Kent sent the Heat into bat and it proved a masterstroke as they bowled Frankston out for just 125. At the end of the day’s play Melbourne had reached 6/101 – just 25 runs from a win. James Miller (27) and Chris McCormick’s 49-ball innings for just 32 runs was the biggest partnership for the Heat. Chris Thompson was the man for Melbourne with 5/20 from 12.5 overs, which included five maidens.

■ PORT’S LAST CHANCE Port Melbourne women’s baseball team needs to win a cut-throat preliminary final against Springvale B on Saturday after it lost 9-2 to Footscray at the weekend.

Keeper Ash Middlin took four catches. Dees openers Mathew Begbie and Ben Way weren’t able to provide a solid foundation with Way falling early for 11. Begbie followed shortly after for 16. Brenton McDonald and first-drop Michael Hill went about resurrecting Melbourne’s innings with Hill looking in good touch for a 48-ball 44 before he was caught. Matt Brown would also lose his wicket for a duck to give Frankston something of a sniff. McDonald (12) and Paynter (4) are the not-out batsmen at the crease. For the Heat it was state man Scott Boland doing most of the damage, taking 3/31 from 11 overs.

Port recruits show promise THERE were no injuries and plenty of promise as Port Melbourne got through its first VFL practice match against North Ballarat unscathed. Playing in a “wind tunnel” at Eureka Stadium, Port Melbourne came away with a 49-points win, 11.11 (77) to 4.4 (28). A dominant third quarter set up the win, but coach Gary Ayres admitted there was “about a fivegoal breeze”. Key senior players including captain John Baird, Sam Pleming, Chris Cain and Toby Pinwill did not play but should line up against Frankston in another practice match on Saturday. Dual Liston medallist Shane

Valenti stepped in as captain and had a terrific game. Ayres also singled out key forward and Frosty Miller medallist Dean Galea, ruckman Wayde Skipper and Billy Burstin for praise. “I thought Billy Burstin worked really hard in a high work-rate role across half-forward,” he said. But most pleasing to Ayres were the efforts of some of the club’s new recruits, who showed plenty of potential ahead of a long season. He singled out Tom O’Sullivan, Luke Rounds, Nick Papaleo and Chris Prowse and said the they would hold the club in good stead this year. The reserves lost by 19 points.

■ SLOW DAY FOR BATSMEN Melbourne’s second XI posted 4/198 from 80 overs on day one of its match with Frankston Peninsula. Marcus Worrall (63) and Max Tomkinson (58) both got half-centuries for the Demons. ■ FIRST INNINGS LOSS Port Melbourne lost on first innings to Parkdale in the VTCA. Parkdale made 144 in reply to Port’s 122. Port Melbourne reached 8/210 in its second innings but time ran out for an outright win. ■ PORT SECURES MAUTONE Port Melbourne Soccer Club has appointed Steve Mautone as its director of coaching. Mautone played with several clubs in the National Soccer League and in the UK. ■ BUDIMIR PROMOTED South Melbourne Soccer Club has promoted Matko Budimir to its senior list. Budimir has played four matches with the seniors. The 19-year-old won several club best-and-fairests and won back-to-back championships with the under 21 team. ■ TRAINING MOVE Albert Park Soccer Club will be training at Field 4 and 5 of the synthetic Albert Park pitches until after the Australian Formula One Grand Prix is completed and packed up.
