Editor Jane Hutchinson

have watched the world pass in front of my milk bar window for more than 65 years. Not one day has passed that I have not thought about how I can better serve the community of Prahran. Hosting community dances for the Prisoners of War Fund, which used to cost a shilling per person, was my first project, in 1944. After that, I was named Miss Prahran and my advocacy work began. Winning the 2012 Stonnington community service Citizen of the Year award, and battles such as the Stonnington clearways dispute in 2010, in which Cr Tim Smith covered up parking signs, and the survival of the Prahran RSL, where my father used to be a regular, reassure me that my work is still making a difference. Today, it is the shocking condition of Chapel Street, saving 100-year-old trees from being cut down, and the need for a high school that require the community’s attention. Not to mention the endless struggle to save Prahran’s heritage buildings from the sticky hands of developers. Chapel Street is a ghost town and a poor reflection of what it once was. Once upon a time, droves of people would pile off the trains at Windsor and Prahran stations to buy their groceries or a beautiful dress on Chapel Street. You simply do not see that any more. With Chadstone 20 minutes down the road and offering free parking all day, smaller shops here are dying and the reputation of Chapel Street is going with them. All that is needed is a bit of money from the council to give it a fresh coat of paint and some TLC to bring its facade back to its original glory.

AUGUST 29, 2012

Late-night drunks leave the footpaths littered with beer bottles and rubbish over the weekend, while vacant shopfronts and tired buildings are a dime-a-dozen during the week. Restoring the street’s reputation, however, requires the efforts of all the traders as well. Since Prahran High school shut down more than 10 years ago, there

has been no public institution for local kids. It has left the community lacking a sense of togetherness. It draws the question: what exactly is the council doing with the community’s money? With parking fines and rates increasing every year, our funds should go towards providing a public education facility for the children of Stonnington.

PROFILE SYLVIA FAHEY, 88 WHAT I LOVE: Helping people throughout the community. It is a permanent part of my life. WHAT I WANT TO CHANGE: I want to see Prahran returned to its original, charming self.

MFB weighs up Glen Iris move

BY EDDIE MORTON

THE Metropolitan Fire Brigade wants to build a fire station at 1721 Malvern Road, Glen Iris, after the landlord of its present base in Malvern East announced other plans for the site. MFB must vacate 80 Waverley Road, where the station has been based for 12 years, by 2015. After an extensive search for a suitable location for a new fire station, the MFB bought the Glen Iris property for $9 million last year. A large office block is currently on the site. The MFB has lodged a planning application with Stonnington council.The station will service Stonnington, Boroondara and Glen Eira. Several meetings with residents revealed concerns about public intrusion and noise disturbance, but MFB chief executive Nick Easy said those concerns had been addressed. ‘‘MFB has a deserved reputation as a good neighbour and we will be a good neighbour in Malvern Road.’’ Stonnington acting chief executive Simon Thomas said the station would be split level with basement-level car parking accessed from Paran Place. Trucks would exit on Malvern Road and enter via Paran Place. EDDIE MORTON

Students rally to save Swinburne emorton@fairfaxmedia.com.au

SWINBURNE TAFE students and teachers turned out in force last Wednesday for a Save Our Swinburne rally against the Baillieu government’s $290 million TAFE funding cuts and Swinburne University’s plans to shut its Prahran campus. Swinburne student union president Mark Briers and secretary treasurer James Searle manned the free sausage sizzle while a crowd of more than 100 gathered outside the campus library. Mr Searle said there had been a lot of confusion among students since the July 6 announcement to shut the High Street campus. “Some students are yet to receive any communication from the university regarding the future of their courses, so many of them are angry and frustrated,” he said. Renee Juliana and Frances Penington are first-year students of Swinburne’s two-year diploma of costume design and will be among the last year level to graduate from the course before its duration is cut to one year in 2013. “It is limiting the education opportunities for students, teachers are faced with job cuts, and the industry will be short of qualified graduates,” they said. “High school leavers will need to reassess their career paths if the course changes go ahead.” Swinburne vice-chancellor Linda Kristjanson said Swinburne would offer a range of courses at Prahran next year for new students, and all current students would be able to complete their courses. ‘‘We’ll continue to engage with

SOS: A protester connected with Swinburne, who does not wish to be named, makes his feelings known about TAFE cuts our students, as we have over the past few weeks, to keep them informed . . . This includes Swinburne Connect, a dedicated information team; the student consultative panel; podcasts; Facebook and other mediums through which we regularly communicate with our students.’’

National Tertiary Education Union division industrial officer Josh Cullinan said teachers, fearful for their jobs, were given no notice of the announcement. ‘‘We are calling for the local member for Prahran, Clem NewtonBrown, to get onside with the students and teachers of Prahran and

vote against the government’s TAFE funding cuts.’’ Mr Newton-Brown said: “I support the state government’s plan to boost vocational education funding of $1 billion. I do not support, and am actively trying to stop, Swinburne’s plans to shut down their Prahran facility.’’

Poker machines not such a windfall for footy club

■ STAMOULIS FINED Property developer Harry Stamoulis, 44, has been convicted and fined $5000 for cutting down 12 trees on his St Georges Road, Toorak, property. Stamoulis, who pleaded guilty to axing trees without a permit, was also ordered to pay $8000 costs. His lawyers told Magistrate Ann Collins last week that Stamoulis did not know a permit was needed, nor that Stonnington council considered the trees to be significant.

Spectrum’s revenue from the machines contributes about 15 per cent of Prahran Football Club’s sponsorship funding. “Many people think pokies are money-making machines, but they don’t take into account the cost to run them and the rent for the venue,” Mr Hable said.

Group on Trak for record launch BY EDDIE MORTON emorton@fairfaxmedia.com.au

TRAK nightclub owner and founder of Mushroom Records and the Frontier Touring Company, Michael Gudinski, has been named Melburnian of the Year for his contribution to the Australian music industry and his charity work. It comes as little surprise, then, that the music guru is donating more than $7000 to Prahran Mission’s Go Live music group. The Go Live project aims to help sufferers of mental health and homelessness heal using music in a creative group environment. The funding will go towards helping the group launch their first record later this year in addition to a massive CD launch at Gudinski’s Toorak nightclub, Trak. Mr Gudinski launched the careers of Australian music legends such as Skyhooks, Kylie Minogue and Eskimo Joe. He hopes the partnership can help Go Live members realise their own rock’n’roll dreams.

ONE of Prahran Football Club’s fund-raising arms, Spectrum on Chapel, is so disappointed with its income from gambling that it is considering a poker-machine rollback. In the year to July, punters lost $3.6 million on Spectrum’s 81 machines, a marginal increase of $90,000 on the previous financial year. Meanwhile, at the Court Jester

Member of the group, Joe, said Go Live had given him an opportunity to express his creativity through music and writing. “A lot of the lyrics are based on our own experiences and are relevant to social issues,” he said.

MORE than 850 critically injured males were admitted to The Alfred hospital in the past 12 months, accounting for 75 per cent of all trauma admissions to the Prahran emergency department. According to Alfred Health’s Professor Russell Gruen, they stayed an average of 13 days in hospital with 75 per cent of them needing intensive care treatment. The top five emergency admissions for Melbourne males were attributed to motor vehicle accidents, falls, motorcyle accidents and cycling accidents. Moorabbin’s Jake Whitford was badly injured in a cycling accident. The 22-year-old construction manager was training daily for an ironman competition. But on May 4 he was hit by a vehicle while cycling to work along Beach Road in Brighton. “The car turned right and didn’t see me coming through the intersection,’’ Mr Whitford said. ‘‘I hit the bonnet, then the windscreen before

ending up on the road with a face full of blood . . . and my leg was pointing in the wrong direction.” Fortunately, one of his friends drove past moments after the accident and called an ambulance – though he did not recognise Mr Whitford lying on the road. “He had no idea it was me. The police officer said my helmet saved my life.” Three months after the accident, Mr Whitford is still on crutches with a steel rod stretching from his knee to his hip and expects his full recovery will take up to two years. With Alfred Health’s Father’s Day Appeal coming up, Mr Whitford advises all men to take serious caution when riding or driving. “Always be on high alert, wear a helmet if cycling and keep your wits about you.” The Alfred is home to the busiest trauma centre in Australia. This year’s Father’s Day Appeal will raise money for a new MRI scanner, one of the most powerful around. To donate call 1800 888 878 or visit fathersdayappeal.org.au.

Stonnington rental vacancy rates top Melbourne average The Melbourne average is 2.9 per cent, according to SQM Research. While the rest of Australia is showing signs of a rental property squeeze, Melbourne’s high vacancy is good news for prospective tenants. However, it does not mean there is not a need for further developments according to Melbourne Uni-

versity’s Dr Hao Wu, of the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning. He said a 4 per cent rental vacancy rate may reflect a buffer. “If the rate was too high over a longer period of time (say 15 per cent), it would be sufficient reason for concern,’’ he said. ‘‘There is currently a demand for higher-density property

such as apartments and townhouses in aff luent suburbs of inner Melbourne. Local council needs to watch the capacity of physical and social infrastructure relative to expected demographic change.” Hocking Stuart’s Armadale office director Andrew James is optimistic about the rental market despite the higher than average vacancy rates in

the area. Hocking Stuart’s current portfolio has a 3 per cent rental vacancy rate, the ideal equilibrium according to SQM Research. Mr James said that the rise and fall of rentals was an annual and seasonal trend as people tended to move around in the spring and summer, and stay put during the winter. EDDIE MORTON

STEPHEN LIGHTFOOT

Super shortfall a rates burden STONNINGTON ratepayers must help pay $11 million to top up a superannuation scheme that closed to new members 19 years ago. The Local Authorities Superannuation Fund has a $450 million black hole – and all Victorian councils and water authorities are liable to fill the gap. Vision Super is trustee of the old local government scheme and determines how much each council and authority must pay to keep the scheme fully funded. Councils were shocked this month when told that their liabilities had skyrocketed due to volatile global investments in 2011. The longevity of the fund’s members has added to the $453 million shortfall. It is the fourth time that councils have had to cover shortfalls in the super scheme. Stonnington council

paid $8.2 million in 1998, almost $3.2 million in 2003 and $2.16 million in 2011. The fund is reviewed every three years and if it can’t meet its commitments to members, councils will be stung again. Stonnington council has budgeted $2 million for this year from cash reserves as part-payment of its $11 million share. Stonnington chief executive Warren Roberts said council was yet to determine how to fund the rest of shortfall. He said the council had the option to pay over 15 years at 7.5 per cent interest. The Municipal Association of Victoria said the problem was a legacy of a former compulsory scheme and councils were not to blame for the superannuation shortfall. TERESA MURPHY

Stonnington’s latest public artwork is the striking sculpture Garden Islands by Melbourne artist Kathy Temin (pictured). Located in front of the new Lilli apartment and office building in Claremont Street, South Yarra, it is Temin’s first major public art commission, though she has exhibited nationally and internationally since 1990. ‘‘It’s a great coup for Stonnington,’’ mayor John Chandler said at the launch. Developer Fridcorp commissioned the artwork and the council paid for landscaping and installation.

PERMIT PERMITTING A planning permit is sought for a five-dwelling, three-storey building with 10 basement car spaces for 1073-1075 Malvern Road, Toorak, an area of predominantly period homes and opposite Lauriston Girls School.

Southland train campaign boost BY LAURA BANKS and BRIDGET FITZGERALD

BAYSIDE council is ramping up a campaign for a train station at Southland. Councillors approved the formation of a project control group to steer planning in and around the shopping centre at last week’s council meeting. One of the principal objectives of

move. ‘‘The Liberal government’s Southland station swindle will no doubt leave local residents feeling betrayed, given that the local Liberal members promised to deliver a new station within the first term of the Liberal government,” Ms Richardson said. Public Transport Users Association president Daniel Bowen said Bayside council should make lobbying for the station a priority. ‘‘The current situation, where

people fight the traffic or endure mostly hourly bus services on weekends to get to Southland, while trains pass by every 10 minutes without stopping, is ridiculous,’’ he said. Public Transport Minister Terry Mulder said the Coalition was still committed to building a station at Southland but would not commit to a timeline. He did not disclose how much, if anything, had been budgeted for the project.

SUPPLIED

THE MASTERMIND of laws to stop door-to-door salespeople said he would consider punishing canvassers as trespassers. A bill before Federal Parliament aims to start a do-notknock register that bans hawkers from nominated addresses. Consumer rights group Consumer Action would like to see a breach of a ‘‘no-knock’’ order punished as trespassing. Consumer Action director of policy and campaigns Gerard Brody said giving people the option to opt out would protect them from the risk of “high pressure” sales. South Australian Hindmarsh MP Steve Georganas introduced the Do Not Knock Register Bill 2012 in May. He said he was still considering the details of the bill and was not opposed to punishing canvassers as trespassers. “I’d be happy to include different options for penalties,” he said. The bill recommends that businesses found in breach of the guidelines would be subject to infringement notices, civil penalties and injunctions. It would allow people to join a Do Not Knock register so that sales companies would know they had opted out. Consumer Action made one of 11 submissions from advocacy groups and organisations to a federal government inquiry last week.

the group will be to influence the development of the railway station, which was first proposed more than 20 years ago. Bayside council will join forces with Kingston council, the Department of Planning and Community Development, the Department of Transport, VicRoads and Places Victoria to establish the group. Opposition public transport spokeswoman Fiona Richardson said she supported Bayside council’s

Gateway go-ahead THE $2.1 million Victoria Street Gateway was given the green light by Yarra City council last week. Councillors unanimously endorsed the design featuring Vietnamese and Chinese cultural symbols, including Non La (a Vietnamese hat), Dong Sum drum and boat motifs at the intersection of Victoria and Hoddle streets, Richmond. The council will now apply for a planning permit. Twenty two submissions were made by residents and groups – nine in support, eight in opposition and five related to details of the designs. Richmond Asian Business Association spokesman Meca Ho said traders were ‘‘very excited’’ about the gateway. ‘The state government has contributed $1 million to the project, the federal government and council $500,000 each and the Richmond Asian Business Association $100,000.

Port council supports Fishermans Bend debate in Parliament bdonelly@fairfaxmedia.com.au

PORT Phillip council has welcomed a move by the state opposition that will see the government’s plan to rezone the 240-hectare Fishermans Bend precinct debated in Parliament. Opposition planning spokesman Brian Tee last week gave notice to revoke the Baillieu government’s 8 STONNINGTON REVIEW LOCAL

amendment to the council’s planning scheme. It will be discussed in Parliament this week but is unlikely to change the outcome because the ALP does not have a majority. Under the changes, Fishermans Bend was rezoned from business and industrial use to capital city use in a plan that is expected to accommodate an extra 50,000 residents. Port Phillip council had estab-

AUGUST 29, 2012

lished a detailed structure plan for Montague, an area now under the capital city zone and out of the council’s hands. Planning Minister Matthew Guy will be responsible for determining applications for buildings higher than four storeys or with more than 10,000 square metres of floor space. Port Phillip mayor Rachel Powning said residents and businesses would lose their right to object and

appeal development. “We are very supportive of this debate occurring in Parliament,” she said. “We won’t have any input into the assessment of applications across the Fishermans Bend and no control over what’s built there.” Labor Albert Park MLA Martin Foley said the government had paved the way for “unfettered development” that would follow in the footsteps of Docklands.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ■ GATE HATE I was delighted to read that our historic flats and apartment blocks in Stonnington will finally be protected from developers (‘‘Heritage nod for blocks of flats’’, RL, August 22). But in the same issue of the RL, I was astounded to read that the historic gateway into Presentation Girls’ College, damaged by a 0truck driver, is not going to be rebuilt, but instead gravely altered (‘‘Gateway to learning’’). Stonnington’s heritage adviser stated the proposed designs for new gates are inappropriate. I was astounded to read the college never sought its advice from a heritage consultant, considering the significance of the site. The new gate will alter the appearance of this wonderful place forever. Steve Stefanopoulos / Armadale ■ SIGNS OF THE TIMES Due to over-enthusiastic sign makers, we can now do 50km/h for 20 metres alongside the South Yarra

post boxes! It would appear that lack of common sense is resulting in our city streets becoming even more cluttered with excess signage. Ron Stride / via email

■ TAXI! Cabbies need love too (‘‘Cabbies face rising violence’’, RL, August 15). Well, maybe not love, but certainly respect. No one should face any sort of violence in their workplace. I’d hate [Melbourne] to go the way of Sydney where the drivers work in some sort of cage arrangement. John / via email ■ CHADDY BE GONE So Stonnington council has approved yet another expansion of Chadstone shopping centre (‘‘Chadstone set for supersizing’’, RL, August 22)? How big does the place need to be? And when will the developers be forced to start paying for public transport to overcome the traffic hazards this monstrosity is

causing? As old-fashioned as it might sound, it’s hard to beat the experience of shopping in a small retail strip, developing relationships with the greengrocer, butcher, baker and newsagent and supporting small business people. Jane / Hampton

■ TIME TO ACT Congratulations to Pam Weaver and all the staff and volunteers who work at the Save-A-Dog Scheme (‘‘Pets pampered by the pound’’, RL, August 1). These people give their time to save unwanted and dumped cats and dogs. If we had compulsory desexing of companion animals, banning sales of pets from pet shops and puppy farms, and registration of owners to track responsible pet ownership, we would have no need to rely on the commitment and goodwill of these people working in animal shelters.

Rippon Lea revisited FRAN CUSWORTH asks whether it’s time to throw open the estate’s gates and let people in

LOCAL FEATURE NATIONAL TRUST OF AUSTRALIA

PHOTOGRPAHS BY DARREN JAMES AND EDDIE MORTON

f Rippon Lea had ghosts, they would be children in white pinafores and pantalettes running down mahogany halls to the grass slopes and hidey-holes of the garden. Sir Frederick Sargood, the politician who built Rippon Lea in 1868, had 12 children who were hideously lucky – not only born to money and the best hide-and-seek house in Melbourne, but also to a deeply loving family. If you’re feeling at all inadequate as a parent, shield your eyes for the next bit – their mother, Marion Sargood, sent each of her children Valentine’s cards every year. And if you’re thinking,‘Well, that’s all fine but they probably had a stern father who was handy with a whip, like Seven Little Australians’ Captain Woolcot’, then read the words of the eldest Sargood daughter, Clara Wordsworth Webster, reminiscing on life at Rippon Lea: ‘‘What games we used to play, chasing each other up and down the long passage from the front door to the sideboard in the dining room and round the table at which father would be sitting writing, looking at us over his glasses, with a twinkle in his eyes – no objection to any happy noise so long as we did not shake the table.’’ Nearly 150 years after the Sargood children ran about the mansion, families living in the surrounding suburb are agitating to get more of the elegant Elsternwick time capsule. Neighbours say the National Heritage-listed building and its 5.7-hectare grounds are under-used and over-priced. Local residents with backyards no bigger than one of Rippon Lea’s doormats say it’s time to drop the entry fees and throw open the gates to the mansion’s grounds, especially after the federal government committed $352,000 in community heritage grants to the estate. “Which part of this community will see the benefits of this?’’ asks Ripponlea resident and mother of two, Kate Nancarrow. She says that with no backyard, her family used to pay an annual membership fee to the National Trust to enjoy the garden’s sweeping lawns, orchard and lake. The $95 fee allows members to visit from Thursday to Sunday between 10am and 4pm. Family entry for non-members is $16 to visit the gardens and $30 to tour the house. ‘‘To be honest, all the times we visited, I never saw more than three other people,’’ says Nancarrow. ‘‘I walk past every day and I never see anyone. What are you saving this for if people don’t go there?’’ She has written to the mayors of Glen Eira and Port Phillip, as well

as the National Trust, asking them to abolish entry fees and open the grounds daily during daylight hours. She points to St Kilda Botanical Gardens, with its conservatory and glasshouse, as a successful example of a Heritage Victoriaregistered property that opens dawn to dusk, seven days a week. ‘‘There are people doing tai chi, mums with babies, men playing chess,’’ she says.

National Trust CEO Martin Purslow says locals are disingenuous to demand greater access.‘‘It is a privately owned property ... there’s no right of free access,’’ he says. Recent grants will go towards a much-needed roof replacement. He says Rippon Lea has a packed calendar of events. It hosts school excursions, local theatre and Christmas carols, as well as the Glen Eira Storytelling Festival. It also serves as a film location – Delta Goodrem used it in her Sitting on Top of the World video in March – and is a popular wedding venue.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP The earliest known photograph of Rippon Lea shows the original house (undated). Frederick Sargood bought the 9.3-hectare piece of scrubland in 1868, and began building straight away; Julia Sargood surrounded by her family outside the thatched tennis pavilion at Rippon Lea circa 1885; Rippon Lea’s green lawns were much-loved by the Sargood children; Kate Nancarrow recently led a group of locals at Rippon Lea’s gates, calling for entry fees to the estate to be scrapped for nearby residents; Rippon Lea today.

That said, Purslow would like to see more people using it – if local governments help financially. The National Trust is keenly aware that Stonnington and Glen Eira have the lowest amount of public space per capita, he says, and is willing to discuss entry for residents if the trust can reach a financial agreement with the councils. For the gracious old lady that is Rippon Lea, all this bickering through the bars of her iron fence is probably just an unseemly scuffle. But back to the Sargoods. This happy tribe must have been shattered by the death, in childbirth, of their mother Marion, aged 40.Their father’s second wife, Julia, was reportedly fond of her many stepchildren. In 1903, Sir Frederick Sargood died of heart

failure and a bereft Lady Sargood sold the property, a steal at £20,000.

Rippon Lea spent a brief period in the hands of Sir Thomas Bent, a former premier who set about subdividing and selling it off, creating Bent and Elizabeth Steets. Perhaps fortunately, he died before he could slice the grand estate into further pieces and the house was bought by businessman Benjamin Nathan. Nathan’s eldest daughter, Louisa Jones, inherited Rippon Lea and transformed the interiors, turfing the Victorian and Edwardian accoutrements and embracing Hollywood. “Lots of creams and pinks,’’ says estate manager Sherredan Nuthall, walking me around the formal sitting room and entry halls, which

still bear her touch.‘‘More light, lots of mirrors.’’ While the soul of Rippon Lea may come from the Sargoods and their rowdy band of children, we owe the estate’s survival to Louisa Jones, who fought the federal government through the courts for years to stop them compulsorily acquiring her land. In 1963, she gave Rippon Lea to the National Trust, and lived there until she died in 1972. Nancarrow says Louisa Jones did not bequeath the property so it could be sequestered away for Delta Goodrem videos. It was a gift to the people, she says, and in a city learning to cope with high-density living, the people need it now more than ever. ‘‘It might just be time to open the gates and see what happens.’’

TEAGAN GLENANE

alking around the Royal Botanic Gardens, listening to the chirp of bell miners on a crisp winter morning, it’s easy to forget you are a stone’s throw from the CBD of a capital city. The fact is not lost on Scott Kerr, one of 35 volunteer guides, who is taking today’s small group on a Winter Discovery Walk.The free 90-minute guided walks run at 11am and 2pm every day except Monday, and change

according to the season. Scott says he usually has four people to a group but sometimes it can swell to 15.Taking our group at a leisurely pace along the wide paths, Scott shares a brief history of the 38-hectare gardens and points out trees and plants of cultural significance along the way. A recent project that has seen a lot of plants thinned out has created new vistas, giving everyone a reason to revisit.

THE VERDICT Scott is knowledgeable and passionate about the Botanic Gardens, one of Melbourne’s finest features for locals and tourists. I have visited the gardens many times, but found many unexplored areas and changing vistas with Scott’s guidance. The tour is wonderful for garden lovers or for anyone looking for a free activity to show off to visitors the world’s most liveable city. 12 STONNINGTON REVIEW LOCAL

MUSIC orking as a bar HOLY SHIP! tender at South Where: Red Bennies, Yarra burlesque level 1, 373 Chapel Street, bar Red Bennies, singer South Yarra. and actor Danae Vincent When: August 30– was swept up in the jazz September 1 and swing tunes that Visit: redbennies.com. surrounded her every night. Little did she know that six months later, she would be performing in her own show at the venue. That show, Holy Ship!, was originally meant to be an album of jazz songs. Sitting in the recording studio with composer Chris O’Neil, Vincent quickly realised her collection of tunes were too flamboyant and theatrical to be confined to a CD, so she decided to write a show to match. “It started off with just a few characters and some dancers,” says Vincent (pictured).“Then I got a full chorus line and eventually this big, epic stage show came together with circus, cabaret, music theatre and burlesque. It just took on a life of its own.” Set in the 1930s Charleston era, the swinging, sexy three-act musical tells the tale of Bonnie (played by Vincent) and her loves, losses and hard drinking. Vincent says it has been incredible to see the songs come to life. “I remember the first time that Chris tweaked one of my ballads … it was just the most surreal thing and

really touching,” she says.“Seeing all the dancers and what they bring to the show has been amazing.” A trained actor and self-taught singer, Vincent is no stranger to the dance studio. She opened her own dance school with 120 students back in her hometown of Goondiwindi, Queensland, when she was just 17 years old. Since then, she has gone from strength to strength in the musical world. Holy Ship! is Vincent’s first production and she is hoping it will continue beyond the three performances at Red Bennies, with a performance at the Adelaide Fringe Festival high on her wish-list. “I have to look at the show and see what venues suit it, because it was designed for Bennies, but I would love to look at the Bohemian Club and maybe a downscale version at Burlesque Bar or Butterfly Club,” she says.“Hopefully it will probably go on for quite a while longer.” Vincent has a full plate at the moment — her National Theatre studies, Holy Ship!, a television show, gigs with two Melbourne house DJs and another show in the pipeline. Needless to say, Red Bennies patrons are much more likely to see her on stage than behind the bar. JOANNE SIM joanne.sim@fairfax.com.au

CRACKING THE CODE Science is stranger than fiction for Malvern biologist and writer ELIZABETH FINKEL Premier’s Literary award, outlines how science is involved in the production of cells from IVF or aborted embryos. Finkel was then invited to be in on the advisory board of Step Ahead Australia, a group which develops stem cell therapies for people with spinal injuries. She remembers being surprised with how genome research could potentially assist in spinal cord injury.“It made me realise,‘wow, some of the fruits of the genome are coming out and being applied in medically relevant ways’,” Finkel says. Released this year, Finkel’s latest book The Genome Generation travels from Singapore to Mexico to Boston to present the main stories from the genetics frontier.Whether it’s predicting genetic predisposition or designing genetically engineered foods to feed the Third World, the research is extraordinary. Despite finding the most amazing

research, from Botswana hospitals, to the Australian wheat fields, what perplexed the pragmatic scientist the most was the genetic coding of a small animal called the trichoplax. The trichoplax is about a millimetre in diameter, without organs or internal structures. It has two cellular layers and looks similar to an amoeba.Yet it has more than 20,000 genes, the same as humans. “Its got the genes for making a brain,” says Finkel.“And when I found this out I really went about in a daze for a few days . . . So I wrote a science fiction story. I just had to get it out of my system.” See Finkel at the Melbourne Writers Festival’s Story of Science at 1pm on September 1 at the Wheeler Centre; and The Code of Life at 1pm on September 2 at ACMI Studio.

I was shocked when I heard what Ted Baillieu is doing to our environment.

Already the Baillieu Government has: • Scrapped plans to cut Victoria’s greenhouse pollution

• Reduced protection for national parks, forests and endangered species

• Made solar power more expensive for Victorian families

• Undermined national efforts to save the Murray River

• Supported polluting coal while destroying investment and jobs in wind and solar energy

• Announced plans to dig up Victorian farmland for brown coal mega-mines

Dr Elizabeth Finkel, a molecular biologist-turned-science journalist, was intrigued by the possibilities of where this research could lead. “I remember thinking at the time I should write a book about this,” Finkel says. “It was such a landmark event and was hailed as the equivalent to putting a man on the moon, or today putting a man on Mars. But for the first years I couldn’t see how I could write about this.

Skaters yearn to come in from the cold CHRIS HOPKINS

BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@fairfaxmedia.com.au

BLADE RUNNERS: Speed skaters Amy Rowson (left) and Max Solin (right) with coach Pam Cavanagh

THE first time most Australians became aware of short-track speed skating was in 2002, when four guys in Salt Lake City fell over and Steven Bradbury coasted over the line for Winter Olympics gold. While it’s one of Australia’s most iconic sporting moments, a decade later the sport still struggles for exposure in a crowded market, something the Olympic Southern Flyers are trying to reverse. ‘‘We’d love to grow the sport,’’ club secretary Melina Solin says. ‘‘We’re always interested in anyone who wants to know more about the sport to come and give it a try.’’ The Flyers, based at the Olympic Ice Skating Centre in Oakleigh and also utilising the Docklands Icehouse, is the oldest ice racing club in Australia after being founded in 1949. It boasts Olympians and state representatives among its members. ‘‘People who grew up in Melbourne probably remember some of the old rinks that have closed down, but when the Icehouse opened I

think people began to realise that ice sports actually happen,’’ Solin says. The Flyers recently sent a group of 13 skaters, including Olympians Lachlan Hay and Richard Goerlitz, to a state-of-origin competition called the Duke Trophy, where they came second to New South Wales. They will also send a strong team to the national championships in Sydney in October. They do all this without sponsorship, relying solely on membership contributions and some fundraising. ‘‘We’re completely club-driven, which is tricky. We really struggle,’’ Solin says. ‘‘Our biggest hope is to attract new people to the sport and by building our numbers have more of a body behind us.’’ ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ●

De La Salle puts one over Xavs

■ KEVS’ COMEBACK St Kevins staged a remarkable comeback to score a 22-point win over AJAX and maintain second spot on the VAFA Premier B ladder on Saturday. AJAX shot out to a 27-point quarter-time lead but St Kevins clawed their way back to win 14.15 (99) to 11.11 (77).

BY EWEN McRAE emcrae@fairfaxmedia.com.au DE LA Salle scored bragging rights over fellow title contenders Old Xaverians in the VAFA on Saturday. Unable to move from third spot on the Premier division ladder, De La Salle tuned up for the finals by beating second-placed Xavs 14.9 (93) to 7.11 (53) at Waverley Park. De La Salle obliterated Xavs in the first term to open up a 47-point quarter time lead. Xaverians struggled with the movement of the De La Salle forwards and Sam Pickett was particularly dangerous with five goals. Although Xavs won the next three quarters, they weren’t able to hit the scoreboard enough to threaten De La Salle’s lead. De La Salle coach Greg McLoughlin said that despite the games ‘‘dead rubber’’ status, it was still important for his team to keep winning. “It’s very pleasing because you want to strong momentum into the finals,” McLoughlin said. The final four is now settled, with one round left, after Old Scotch secured fourth spot with a 63-point win over Uni Blues. Collegians and Old Xavs will play in the qualifying final in two weeks, with the winner making the grand final.

MATCH REPORT

With an eye on the finals, McLoughlin said he would rest players who needed a break in next weekend’s match against Old Carey. “It’s a fine line and you’ve got to be smart about it,” McLoughlin said. “It’s only the guys that absolutely need a rest that will get one because we still want that rhythm and momentum going into the finals.” Old Scotch thumped De La Salle to the tune of 81 points in their last meeting and McLoughlin said his team was wary of what Scotch is capable of in their upcoming final. “They’re the best team we’ve played this year,” McLoughlin said. “I haven’t seen a team better drilled, better set up, or hungrier so we’ll definitely go in with some different match-ups. “It will be great for our boys to get out there and hopefully make amends.”

■ RUGBY BLOCKBUSTER Melbourne will meet Power House in the Premier Rugby preliminary final this week after Power House and Footscray both had strong wins in the semis. Footscray will play Moorabbin in the other final. The winners will meet in the grand final the following week. ■ 60 YEARS OF SERVICE Graeme Minniece has been named Stonnington Sports Citizen of the Year for almost 60 years of service to Malvern Lacrosse Club.

Relegations confirmed

Two types of draw

ALL relegation issues have been confirmed after the final round of matches in State League hockey. In Women’s State League One, Toorak East Malvern had its relegation confirmed with a 2-0 loss to Doncaster at the State Netball Hockey Centre. TEM won only one game all year to finish on the bottom of the table, with Waverley the other team to go down. MCC lost its final match 2-0 to Footscray and finished the season in eighth place. In State League Two, Hawthorn completed a perfect season with a powerhouse 12-3 win over Southern United, keeping them on top

RICHMOND and Oakleigh both had draws in Victorian Premier soccer on the weekend, although they did it in vastly different styles. Richmond played a thrilling 3-3 draw with Hume City in a result that ends Richmond’s hopes of playing in this year’s finals. Hume shot to a 2-0 lead within 15 minutes and looked as if they might run away with the game but Tom Cahill scored from the penalty sport for Richmond just before half-time. The game was back on an even keel when Cahill scored his second in the 49th minute. A stunning lob from Richmond midfielder Timmy Purcell gave the Eagles

and favourites for promotion. Baw Baw and CV Blazers will be relegated. In Men’s State League One, Toorak East Malvern managed a surprise 4-4 draw with Doncaster to finish the season in eighth place, comfortably ahead of the relegated Mentone and Footscray sides. MCC finished in sixth place, following their 4-3 win over Footscray, with Footscray failing to win a game for the season. Greensborough and Camberwell have earned the double chance while Hawthorn and Waverly will play a sudden death elimination final this weekend.

the lead 20 minutes later and they looked like they might steal the win and move within striking distance of finals. But a fantastic curling strike by Hume’s Nick Hegarty salvaged a point for the home side and kept their slim finals hopes alive. Oakleigh Cannons played a 0-0 draw in the top-of-the-table clash with Dandenong Thunder. Both teams created chances but couldn’t take them in a match that may prove to have been a grand final preview. The point gave Dandenong the minor premiership with two rounds left, while Oakleigh stays second.
