Taxi industry reforms a test for south-east BY CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS WHEELCHAIR-taxi passengers in Melbourne’s south-east are unsure if their torturous waits for cabs will end after last week’s announcement of sweeping reforms to the taxi industry. Sharon Harris, of Dandenong, was refused a ride by a station wagon cab driver outside Dandenong Plaza last Tuesday. Her wheelchair folds up and its wheels can be detached into a package that would comfortably fit in a regular car’s boot. Yet she claims the driver didn’t budge from his seat to try. ‘‘I couldn’t say how many times it’s happened,’’ Ms Harris said, recounting a five-hour wait for a cab outside a post office last year. Shaunagh Stevens, of Beaconsfield, was marooned at Fountain Gate shopping centre for more than three hours waiting for a cabbie who didn’t return. Since then, she has got to know a reliable cabbie who she can call

directly. Otherwise she books 48 hours ahead to ensure she gets a wheelchairaccessible cab, avoiding the ‘school run’ times when they’re booked up — ‘‘if I don’t book in advance, I can’t get a cab’’. Under the state government’s response to Allan Fels’ taxi industry report, a central booking register for wheelchair-accessible taxis will be set up to cut down on waits in the metropolitan zone, which doesn’t include Dandenong and the south-east. Instead, an incentive system that subsidises cabbies who pick up wheelchair passengers will continue in Greater Dandenong but be reviewed within a year. Disability Resources Council chairman Frank Hall-Bentick said improvements wouldn’t happen until Dandenong was included in the central booking register. ‘‘It’s where you ring the one number and all the cabs are under the Taxi Commission’s control. One problem with local providers is they don’t take responsibility to fill the vacancies. ‘‘If we get the closest driver to do the job, this would solve 99 per cent of the jobs.’’ Dandenong Taxis’ 98-car fleet covers the south-eastern ‘Dandenong zone’. Of

those 98 cabs, 19 are wheelchair accessible. General manager Paul Smith said the number was enough for current demand. He said he had ‘‘not really’’ had many complaints from wheelchair passengers but supply could be short during certain times. ‘‘There’ll be 98 cars out there in the middle of the day, but not on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday nights — it’s not viable to have taxis out at that time.’’ Under state government reforms, the once-exclusive Dandenong zone will become part of an ‘urban’ zone including Frankston and Mornington Peninsula. Cabs will be able to cross zone boundaries, picking up and dropping off customers in a buffer zone ‘‘no less than five kilometres’’ on either side of the boundary. Under the current zoning system, taxis in Dandenong are limited to their own zone. Cabbies often refuse to take fares across zones because they aren’t allowed to collect a return fare. Taxi licence prices — currently more than $300,000 — will fall steeply. In Dandenong, a conventional licence will cost $17,000 and a wheelchair-accessible taxi licence $13,400. Metropolitan licences cost $4000 more.

Dandenong revitalised but community groups ‘miss out’ SOME of Dandenong’s key community groups are being cramped in ‘‘antiquated’’ and ‘‘inadequate’’ buildings, a Greater Dandenong councillor says. Cr Matthew Kirwan said new lodgings must be found for Dandenong’s child and maternal health service, neighbourhood house and historical society. He described the health service, with its two clinics and a toy library crammed in a semidetached 1940s building in Clow Street, as ‘‘providing a great service in an antiquated setup’’. Its waiting area was crowded into a small lounge room and paled next to the early-years

hub in Springvale, with integrated child care, kindergarten, maternal and child health and a toy library, Cr Kirwan said. “Dandenong has been revitalised in so many ways. We’re developing it as a regional centre but for people living in Dandenong, the community services aren’t keeping up. “These buildings are not fit for purpose.’’ He said there was ‘‘thought of having a community hub to deal with it all’’ in future years, but a decision needed to be made now to plan and finance the project. Dandenong Neighbourhood House manager Robyn Koslovich said its King Street base was

‘Dandenong has been revitalised in so many ways. We’re developing it as a regional centre but for people living in Dandenong, the community services aren’t keeping up.’ — Matthew Kirwan not large enough to cater for an expanding program. About 200 asylum seekers on bridging visas visit the neighbourhood house for English classes each week. Dandenong and District Historical Society president Chris Keys said researchers were forced

to work in a corridor because of a lack of space at the Tom Houlahan Centre in Foster Street. The society had also had to cap its volunteers . The council’s community services director Mark Doubleday said a community facility infrastructure study for Springvale and central Dandenong in 2011–12 included an option of an integrated community hub in both areas. He said the study was a ‘‘medium to long-term planning guide’’. ‘‘While some council community service facilities were developed some time ago and over time will require replacement, all facilities are maintained for appropriate community service use.’’

We must learn to embrace our waste Far too many usable items are being placed out for hard rubbish. If residents had an address of a warehouse or collection depot we could happily donate useful and reusable items to these needy individuals. I recently heard of a family who have survived on one pot and one spoon for a year! Unfortunately, because of health restrictions, op shops cannot take certain items, which is frustrating. Helping Hand has managed large crowds at its giveaway days — a set-up whereby they handle everything or allow residents to set up something similar to a garage sale (with no money exchanged) would allow people to exchange items and save useful items going into landfill. We must reduce, reuse, recycle and repair items so that they give comfort and hope to those who need them but can’t afford simple things. A set-up like this may even provide jobs or training for those in skill training courses. Cybil (via web)

Re: Springvale special school gets state-of-the-art campus Many of our kids are being left to fend for them-

selves in a mainstream setting due to the change in criteria. Our children are being set up to fail as the mainstream schools are not well equipped nor have the tools, staff and knowledge to cope with the influx of children with autism spectrum disorder entering their schools. I’ve had teachers tell me not to recommend a school to prospective ASD parents because they have enough ASD kids already. Please help our children. El (via web)

I have a child with autism in a state school in grade 6 and who has no funding for an aide. He can’t write out his alphabet, he comprehends what he has read at a grade 3 level and is expected to go to high school next year. Last year his teacher did a total of six hours’ training, which is nothing. The money spent on inadequate training would be better spent on one-on help in the classroom. As for the school working with the family, this is not true. I have been to many meetings at the school and it is like talking to yourself. The education department does nothing to help; they insist on re-testing children for an aide even though they know that a child would not qualify for an aide. My son has been tested three times in the last two years, which achieved nothing.

So much money has been wasted on testing my son instead of providing him the help he needs. Alison Liu (via web)

Re: Raising the baa on fees ‘not a Vu Ho tax’ The Merchant of Venice: ‘‘In law, what plea so tainted ... But being seasoned with a gracious voice, obscures the show of evil?’’ — a speech characterised by courtesy or civility, which obscures the tainted truth that may lie at the heart of the matter. It is good reasoning to identify the increase as a ‘Vu Ho tax’ as the probability of recovering the council’s legal cost from the poor, unemployed plaintiff would be as good as Shylock recovering his ‘‘pound of flesh’’. Still, the money has to come from somewhere. My suggestion: ‘‘Mercy is an attribute to God himself.’’ Mercy has the largest effect on the mighty, perhaps because the decision of those in ‘power’ (like the council and the legal teams) affect many people. Mercy ‘becomes’ a king more than his crown, as it shows the king to the best advantage. Raising taxes on real working people during such difficult times and calling these taxes by other names are actions to the contrary. Alex Hoe (via web)

‘Cops’ on the green beat BY CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS ENVIRONMENT Protection Authority investigators are a curious mix of greenies and cops, says one of their colleagues. They share a legal precision, scientific accuracy and a fervent passion for the environment as they crunch data, forensically measure pollutants and photograph evidence. When they prosecute, the investigators require a level of proof ‘‘beyond reasonable doubt’’. During a personal tour of licensed sites in Greater Dandenong, including the offensive industrial zone in Ordish Road, EPA general manager Leigh Bryant reveals he has worked for several of the factories himself. ‘‘We’re here to assist businesses to comply [with their licences]. We’re not here to close businesses down. They produce and dispose of the products we use.’’ He points out some of the flash-points, such as a recent fire fuelled by 500,000 litres of oil at Tritech’s oil lubricant fact-

ory. EPA officers urgently ordered soil to dam a drain to prevent run-off from the CFA’s hoses running into Eumemmerring Creek. The EPA has continued monitoring the site’s clean-up for two years. In Swift Way, a self-described ‘‘recycler’’ was pulled up for leaving out 1000 kilograms of crushed TVs in bags outside its yard. A neighbouring business was pinged for dumping more than 20 litres of cutting fluid, causing the water in an open drain to turn white. As previously reported by the Journal, the state environment watchdog is battling to maintain its presence in the field despite 15 per cent funding cuts across the state public service. Two months ago, the number of field workers covering a region stretching from Knox to the Mornington Peninsula and Lang Lang was four, down from six or seven. At the same time, their job demands haven’t shrunk. Dandenong is home to 80 of the state’s 350 EPA-licensed polluters, which submit annual performance reviews to the authority and are inspected by their

officers at least once every three years. These sites include abattoirs, waste and sewage treatment, quarries and landfills. Mr Bryant said pollution levels in Dandenong’s industrial area were profoundly less under the EPA’s licensing system. The systematic clean-up has also been driven by passionate community groups, such as Residents Against Toxic Waste in the South-East who say ‘‘it’s not acceptable to stink up Dandenong South’’. Some of these ‘‘allies’’ can also criticise the EPA for not taking more strident action, such as closing SITA’s Hallam Road landfill after repeated foul odours escaping into the housing estate 100 metres away. Mr Bryant said the mutual encroachment of industries and homes into each other’s zones was is the crux of the problem. “The EPA objected to the housing estate being built near the landfill and [Casey] council refused to give the developers a permit, but VCAT [the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal] issued the permit.’’

Steam debate fuels memories A RECENT query from Barbara Linton on the wooden train turntable at the Dandenong railway station, where steam locomotives were turned around to return to Melbourne and other destinations, has helped revive Keith Purton’s memories of the steam age. Keith, 74, was a fireman on the D3 trains and later became an engine driver. He has lived in Noble Park for 45 years and worked day and night shifts. “I can recall the trains taking pigs to the Dandy Hams and Bacon factory just up from the Dandenong station,’’ he writes. Trains also supplied ‘‘goods to the State Electricity Commission abutting the train lines on the opposite side to the bacon factory, coal to HJ Heinz and sand to Dandenong Glass Works to make glass’’. ‘‘After day shift we would put water on the coals in the cabin of the trains. ‘‘People would be under the misapprehension that we would be dirty but working in the cabin we were not, as we would meticulously wash everything we touched.’’ When I attended Dandenong High School I remember students from the school travelled daily to and from Koo Wee Rup in a carriage behind a goods train, which was often carting

Winners of the competition will be announced at the society’s Then and Now 1963-2013 exhibition in September.

Company ‘didn’t report emissions’ water down its pollution licence after being issued with a notice by the EPA last year. The manufacturer argued its licence limits were ‘‘incorrect or lower than the acceptable limit with respect to SEPP [state environment planning policy] requirements’’. In its previous APS, Fletcher Insulation had exceeded its licensed discharge limits on five of 16 measures for toxic substances across three smokestacks, including PM10, formaldehyde and phenol. In its most recent APS, Fletcher Insulation scored a clean bill of health but under more generous discharge limits for formaldehyde, PM10, ammonia and phenol. Had it been assessed under the previous year’s stricter discharge limits, it would have breached limits for formaldehyde and ammonia. Ms O’Shea said licence limits were based on information supplied by Fletcher Insulation and reviewed by the EPA. “EPA tries to ensure that emissions are as low as possible and licence limits are set on this basis. The emission limits in a licence are the upper acceptable limits.’’

A DANDENONG South insulation manufacturer has failed to report its particle emissions on its most recent annual performance statement. On its 2011-12 APS submitted to the Environment Protection Authority, Fletcher Insulation reported zero emissions of PM10 — that is, particulate matter of diameter 10 micrometres or less. The EPA’s website states that exposure to such fine particles is linked to breathing and respiratory problems, damage to lung tissue, cancer and premature death. Fletcher Insulation general manager Colin Zeitlyn said the company last year found its licensed discharge limits for PM10 were incorrectly set. ‘‘In consultation with the EPA, who receive all our data, it was agreed therefore that the readings should not be submitted in the APS.’’ EPA spokeswoman Tanya O’Shea said there was “some confusion on what the reported figure should be’’ due to the company using the EPA’s APS portal for the first time.

A 10-year-old boy has been cautioned by Greater Dandenong CIU detectives after two suspected explosive devices were found at a Springvale South school last Monday. Athol Road Primary School was evacuated after a staff member found the home-made devices at the rear of the school about 1.40pm. The police’s bomb response unit assessed the devices contained in 600ml soft drink bottles, and took them away for further testing. Detective Sergeant Dean Hayes said the devices had the potential to injure a person’s hand.

In what police have called ‘‘identity theft’’, a male in his late 20s withdrew a cheque from the victim’s account using the victim’s learner’s permit on March 12. Later that day the cheque was deposited in an account falsely established in the victim’s name. Three days later the cheque was withdrawn as cash. Detective Senior Constable Kane Taylor of Greater Dandenong CIU said the account was opened on March 4, the same day the victim lost his identification.

Cr John Kelly, who sits on Melbourne’s south-east regional waste board, says the colour change brings the council into line with national standards.

TELSTRA BUSINESS CENTRE DANDENONG IS PLEASED TO INVITE YOU TO THEIR BUSINESS INFORMATION SESSION

It also puts the council in step with a statewide campaign, ‘Get It Right on Bin Night’, based on the traffic light colours. Cr Kelly has opted for a large yellow bin and small non-recyclable waste bin. There is expected to be price incentives to encourage other residents to ‘downsize’ their red bins. ‘‘The service is geared towards a reduction in landfill waste, so it’s less of a problem for our grandchildren,’’ Cr Kelly said. ‘‘I do think landfill is going to be a thing of the past with new waste technologies coming on board.’’

Controversial mound to be demolished BY CAMERON LUCADOU-WELLS AN independent audit has contradicted Greater Dandenong Council’s claim that a footpath climbing an artificial mound in Noble Park meets disability access standards. As first reported in the Journal, Cr Maria Sampey had complained the $39,251 Princes Highway footpath — particularly over the councilbuilt mound near Racecourse Road — was inaccessible.

The audit by Architecture & Access found a litany of flaws and hazards along the footpath. One was that the mound section was steeper than Australian Standards for disability access and should be regraded at a cost of about $15,000. Last Monday, councillors voted in favour of demolishing the mound, rather than a $6380 option to provide an alternative footpath link. Cr Sampey said the latter, recommended in a council officer’s report, was ‘‘an insult’’. ‘‘We should never be put in a position ever

again to fight so someone in a wheelchair should be able to use our footpaths,’’ she said. Cr Peter Brown, who moved last week’s successful motion, said the audit showed the council ‘‘hadn’t done justice’’ to the people using the footpath. The footpath was built primarily for Darvall Lodge high-care nursing home residents to visit Sandown Park Hotel. ‘‘For the disadvantaged, the disabled — the ones who need it most are the ones who

can use it the least,’’ Cr Brown said. Councillors also voted for another $13,000-plus of improvements such as three seating benches along the path, and to fix further hazards. The audit also found the sloping ground to the sides of the footpath’s mound was a hazard to pedestrians straying from the path. The council will follow a recommendation for an extra 60 centimetres of levelled land on each side of the path.

Council moves to correct disability access problems GREATER Dandenong Council has taken a ‘‘first step’’ to fixing a glut of disability-access problems in central Dandenong, Cr Matthew Kirwan says. Last Monday, councillors unanimously supported Cr Kirwan’s motion that officers investigate 14 concerns raised by disability advocates. Flashback: The council investigation as reported in the Journal on May 20.

The list, as exclusively reported in the Journal this month, included uneven cobblestone pavers in Lonsdale Street parking bays, inaudible pedestrian signals near Dandenong station and a lack of wheelchair access at the McCrae Street taxi rank. The to-do list suggests the reintroduction of a consultative group. "It is only the first step in rectifying these issues in central Dandenong for people with a disability,’’ Cr Kirwan said. ‘‘Whatever the

final outcome, [it’s] a recognition of the importance of these issues.’’ He thanked Disability Resource Centre coordinator Katrina Newman and disability advocate Sharon Harris, as well as the Journal, for raising the issues. Ms Harris said it was wrong to prioritise fixing the Noble Park footpath in a separate motion (see story above) above other hazardous spots in central Dandenong.

FEATURESTORY At a time when the government’s new-arrivals policy is a hot topic, CHAD VAN ESTROP explores how school-aged new arrivals are learning English and more.

Lesson plan for a new life I

n Maryam Wafajo’s former life, school was a place of arbitrary and random violence dispensed by impatient and intolerant instructors. At school in her native Pakistan teachers would routinely pepper student’s knuckles with rulers, sticks or whatever came to hand. The reasons for this violence were trivial enough: for speaking out of turn, or for a lapse in concentration, or for failing to complete homework. Sometimes the reason was not at all clear. Intolerance in the classroom was only half the story. The trip to school was along streets patrolled by radical Taliban on motorbikes warning people not to attend school. They threatened violence and kidnapping against those who defied them. At Noble Park English Language School — where Ms Wafajo is now a pupil — life is very different and truly a world apart. Noble Park is one of four schools in Victoria that offers new arrivals to the country a six-to12-month crash course in English. The school’s population is fluid and as of late last month 512 students — mainly from Afghanistan — were enrolled at four campuses. English language schools offer places to school-aged children who are migrants, refugees or asylum seekers. Eligible students have usually lived in Australia for less than six months. The schools are a pathway to mainstream education. ‘‘We are a place that assists students in their transition into a new country both in terms of cultural awareness and language proficiency,’’ says the principal at Noble Park, Enza Calabro. She says the school’s program is continually tweaked to adjust to the needs of particular groups. During a recent wave of Sudanese arrivals, Ms Calabro says a teacher was used to take students to and from school. “These students had come from a nonindustrialised country and did not know how to use a train or bus.” Born in Pakistan and of Hazara heritage, Ms Wafajo says the workload at her school back home was tiresome, with up to 14 subjects a year forced onto students as young as 14. Ms Wafajo, 18, says the punitive approach to teaching made learning difficult. “In Pakistan the teachers get angry when students ask a lot of questions,’’ she says in haltering and strongly accented English. The fear Ms Wafajo encountered at school was compounded by the anti-education messages of the Taliban. ‘‘Sometimes I would just sit at home because I was scared.’’ The persecution of Hazara people like Ms Wafajo’s family dates back to the 16th century. The Hazaras are targeted by Afghanistan’s major ethnic groups — the Sunni muslims and the Pashtuns — on religious grounds. The plight of the Hazara people in Afghanistan has improved slightly since the ousting of the Taliban government in 2001, according to the 12

Helping hand: Maryam Wafajo is thankful for the opportunities teachers like Seb Gate offer her. United Nations. But they continue to be victimised in neighbouring Pakistan. Amnesty International has recorded 91 separate attacks on Hazaras in Pakistan since January 2012, resulting in more than 500 deaths. Ms Wafajo, who arrived in Australia by boat in late 2011, now has a stable education platform after 11 months at Noble Park. “I feel comfortable to ask teachers questions now. I know they will take time to give me help. ‘‘I’m so thankful to my teachers.’’ At the Blackburn English Language School in Croydon North, student names like Dawt-Kuu, Mawi-Mawi, Suah-Pi, Bawi-Phir dominate. The student population at English language schools is a barometer of world conflict. Once the student body was dominated with Sudanese refugees. Now pupils from Afghanistan and Burma are the mainstay. A teacher at Blackburn, Carly Minett, has witnessed the transformation of many pupils, having taught in English language schools since 2005. “You have the opportunity to help people at a time when they are at their most vulnerable and that’s pleasing,’’ she said. Ms Minett understands the importance of providing support to new arrivals, as her grandparents struggled to adjust when they migrated to Australia from Italy in the 1930s.

Picture: Rob Carew

‘‘When my family first came to Australia they didn’t have much support, so it is nice to be able to help people that have chosen Australia as their home.’’ But Ms Minett said her role is not without its challenges: “You always have to decode and understand where somebody has come from and how it affects their perspective.’’ Principal at Blackburn, Robert Colla, said the turnover of students at his school is brisk. As of last month the school had no enrolments for second term next year. Mr Colla said the school focuses on bringing its 340 pupils — currently mostly Burmese — up to mainstream standards in reading, writing and awareness of Australian culture. ‘‘We are the starting point for creating an environment for students so they can go off and learn. ‘‘[English language schools] are a central focal point for newly arrived children, not just for education but for the provision of services as well.” For pupils the schools act as an interconnected support system. At Blackburn nurses specialising in refugee health visit fortnightly, welfare workers monitor student behaviour, interpreters assist with monthly parent-teacher interviews and transition officers help place graduating students into mainstream schools. At classroom level, instructions are delivered

slowly and the lines between English and other lessons are blurred. Reminders of correct tenses and sentence constructions can sporadically interrupt an algebra lesson. Teachers are qualified to teach English to nonnative speakers. Bilingual aides — particularly in the lower grades — provide an important ‘‘link’’ between teachers and students. The importance of the teaching aides is underlined by the fact that about one-third of students have suffered some disruption, or interruption to their schooling at some stage in their lives. Class sizes are deliberately small and simplified classroom activities mimic mainstream schooling. The primary curriculum includes units on emergency services, transport and wildlife with an emphasis on speaking and reading about what is learnt. The secondary curriculum varies dependant on a student’s proficiency. Some have to be taught how to hold a pen while others craft argumentative essays at will. Ms Wafajo says coming to Australia has given her life purpose. Propaganda against education and the fear of the ruler no longer haunt her. She is adjusting to a different culture. “In Afghanistan as soon as girls turn 18 they get married and there isn’t much opportunity to learn — it is so different here.” Ms Wafajo will graduate from Noble Park this month and hopes to study nursing. ‘‘I really like to help people and solve their problems.’’

Opening the doors to help BY CHAD VAN ESTROP

Help at hand: Christine Angua was put in touch with CMY at the Pathways to Better Living expo. Picture: Chad Van Estrop

FINDING suitable help and knowing when to ask for it is sometimes difficult for new migrants. But last week the tentativeness associated with settling into a new community was alleviated for some at the Pathways to Better Living expo. Doveton resident and single mother Christine Angua was among 500 migrants and refugees who attended the Dandenong expo, which brought together more than 70 services

including counsellors, foster carers and job agents. Ms Angua, who migrated from Uganda in 2007, said the information she received at the expo would allow her to better support her young family. ‘‘I just want to find a job and be able to provide for my children,’’ she said. Ms Angua, who lived in a Ugandan refugee camp for nine years, said it was difficult to support her school-aged daughters and help with their homework. ‘‘It is very hard for me to

help my children by myself.’’ At the expo Ms Angua was put in touch with the Learning Beyond the Bell program offered by the Centre for Multicultural Youth. The program recruits tutors to run homework clubs at south-eastern schools providing assistance to refugee and migrant students. Ms Angua said the program would allow her daughters to get help she was unable to provide. Ms Angua was also put in touch with Good Money,

which provides no-interest loans. Ms Angua plans to use a loan from Good Money to buy school books and uniforms for her daughters. ‘‘Sometimes it is hard to know what services are available. To know there are services that can help my family is a big relief.’’ Windermere Child and Family Services business manager Serap Ozdemir said the expo was about ‘‘making sure that we can get people to access the services they are entitled to.’’

Dandenong Thunder joins statewide bid for restructure DANDENONG Thunder has submitted an 11thhour expression of interest to be part of the next stage of Football Federation Victoria’s statewide competition restructure. Spokesman Sezar Jakupi confirmed the club submitted the required paperwork last Friday.

However, he said the club still had concerns about the controversial National Premier Leagues of Victoria model. ‘‘There’s been discussion among the Victorian Premier League clubs this week, all of that has been taken into the decision-making process.’’

‘‘There are some legit concerns as to the financial viability of the model.’’ Football Federation Australia set out the NPL model which is intended to create a distinct pathway for young players to the professional ranks. However, many clubs have expressed concerns

over costs which set minimum requirements for facilities, licence conditions for coaches , medical staff levels and a $50,000 licensing fee a season. Clubs wanting to apply for a licence must do so by July 31. As of Friday the FFV had received more than 30 expressions of interest.

Community Voice is a monthly column celebrating Greater Dandenong’s diverse cultures and lifestyles. This month, lawyer and AFL multicultural community ambassador Azmeena Hussain shares her passion for breaking down the barriers that divide communities.

Booting the barriers AS a first-generation Australian, born to Sri Lankan Muslim parents, I know all too well the difficulties faced by migrants in creating that equal sense of belonging and trust within their newly found communities. In my experience working with community groups throughout the region, I’ve found that when newly arrived people settle in Australia, there is an automatic ‘us and them’ situation . Us being the migrants and their familiar migrant communities, and them being the wider Australian community. I’m passionate about working with new and emerging communities to remove that divide and increase migrants’ sense of belonging and empower them. I’m lucky that I have a great vehicle for doing that through my role as a lawyer in the Dandenong office of Maurice Blackburn Lawyers. I now have another great opportunity to help strengthen the community, as an AFL multicultural community ambassador for season 2013,

an honour I’m extremely excited about. It’s a natural extension to my passion for community work, helping the disadvantaged and those from non-English-speaking backgrounds throughout Greater Dandenong, Casey, Cardinia and Monash. As part of my role, I hope to connect AFL staff with the community to boost local engagement and inclusion via multicultural programs. The AFL multicultural community ambassador role is a clever way to use sport to strengthen communities. Sport is an integral part of Australian life and culture and plays a vital role in multicultural Australia as a tool for social inclusion, empowering many newly arrived Australians to develop an identity and sense of active belonging. The AFL in particular is at the centre of Australian sport and has taken a leadership position in trying to bring Australian communities together. I witnessed one great example of that in 2011,

Team player: Azmeena Hussain when we hosted the AFL Peace Team at our Maurice Blackburn iftar dinner. Ramadan is the holiest month on the Islamic calendar when Muslims fast from dawn until dusk, and then break their fast with family and friends. This special meal is called iftar. The team consisted of 13 Israeli and 13 Palestinians who had competed in the AFL International Cup as a united Peace Team. Seated between two footy players eating kosher and

halal, and witnessing how they supported each other, uniting in the name of sport, was so powerful and inspiring. The role of the AFL in this regard was significant in creating such harmony not only between countries, but between our own communities here in Melbourne. I hope to be able to take such powerful experiences and build on them in my new ambassadorial role.

T

his palatial residence is well positioned close to schools, shops and transport. The new house, owned by its fastidious builder, is a showpiece with every conceivable option and comfort. The agent’s catchphrase: ‘Live like a millionaire’ is not out of place as this superb offering cannot be faulted. In a quiet estate near Haileybury college, the doublestorey brick and render home is an entertainer’s dream with plush carpets in the formal sitting and dining rooms, generous porcelain-tiled open-plan family living zone with casual meals area and fully-wired theatre room. The private parent’s suite upstairs is a dream with its walk-behind wardrobes and swish en suite. The nearby TV area has a built-in desk and sound equipment cabinet. The hostess kitchen is opulently finished with butler’s pantry, Caesarstone bench-tops, vinyl-wrap cupboards and stainless-steel appliances. It has a return breakfast bench and walls of sliding glass doors opening to the sunny patio, alfresco and grass areas. The modern, neutral colour scheme and free-flowing, naturally bright floor plan complements the glossy cabinetry and doors. Extensive floor tiling throughout the high traffic areas makes cleaning easy. All five bedrooms — with four upstairs — have their own en suites and walk-in wardrobes and views. A downstairs bedroom or guest room has a full en suite with twin showers and twin vanities. The laundry is fully equipped and the double garage has a remote-controlled door and workshop area. There’s plenty of space and privacy for the whole family to come together, or enjoy quiet times apart. Features include heating and cooling plus ducted vacuum, alarm and intercom. There’s extra storage space and high modern doors throughout. This is a house hard to fault: it’s certainly comfortable and spacious, with lavish entertainment areas inside and out. Its proximity to schools, shops and parklands and a thriving leisure centre at the end of the street make it a luxury haven for modern family living.

Night of havoc as firebugs strike POLICE say a series of fires lit across the cities of Greater Dandenong and Monash last week could have been disastrous. Detective Senior Constable Lara Murray of Dandenong crime investigation unit said the fires, lit in bins in Mulgrave, Noble Park and Noble Park North, were serious. ‘‘They were close to buildings,’’ she said. ‘‘It could have been much worse.’’ Eight fires were started in the suburbs, including one at the Salvation Army store on Princes Highway in Noble Park North that blew out the windows. The first fire was lit at 11.52pm last Monday at a store in Jacksons Road in Noble Park North. The firebugs then moved to Police Road in Mulgrave and set two dumpsters ablaze at the Waverley Gardens shopping centre. Between about 2am and 4am, fires were set in bins at the Salvation Army, the Noble Park North McDonald’s, the Noble Park KFC, and a 7-Eleven service station on the corner of Princes Highway and Corrigan

Pair charged over petrol bomb Police have charged a 23-year-old man and 20-year-old woman for allegedly making a petrol bomb. The pair face charges of possessing an item to cause damage or injury. Police also expect to charge them with making an explosive substance. The Glen Waverley pair were arrested about 4.30am on May 25 in Greaves Reserve at the Dandenong Showgrounds. Police were patrolling the area when they noticed a suspicious car with a petrol bomb next to it. The pair will face the Dandenong Magistrate’s Court on September 26. — Daniel Tran

FIRE SERVICES LEVY MONITOR

Check your insurance renewal to make sure the fire services levy is removed.

WINTHIS

From 1 July 2013, funding for fire services will be through a levy collected by local councils with council rates. You should no longer pay the levy with your insurance premium. The Fire Services Levy Monitor is here to make sure insurance companies do not include a fire services levy with premiums. If you have property insurance, you should carefully check the amount of your next insurance premium and compare it with last year’s. If you have a concern or complaint about your premium, contact the Fire Services Levy Monitor.

aul Thorn’s mentors come from polar opposites. Thorn’s father, a Pentecostal minister in America’s deep south, and his uncle, a former pimp, are the driving forces behind his music career. ‘‘I was a young disciple to pimps and preachers,’’ Thorn exalts in one of his songs. The 48-year-old singer and songwriter, who will perform at the Hallam Hotel thismonth, said his father’s affinity with preaching taught him how to engage an audience. ‘‘Part of being a minister is that you have keep a crowd entertained and engage them with your words. That’s what I try to do,’’ he said. ‘‘When I go out on stage I want the crowd to feel like we are having a collaboration.’’ Growing up in Tupelo, Mississippi — the birthplace of Elvis Presley — Thorn said he ‘‘cut my teeth’’ listening to gospel music. ‘‘Even though I sing secular music there’s still a thread of gospel music that runs through everything I do.’’ Thorn said his uncle taught him how to connect with others. ‘‘He really taught me to take the time to listen to

people and understand what they are going through.’’ Now, Thorn tries to incorporate his uncle’s teachings into his shows. ‘‘All people want when they go to a show is to feel like someone cares about them, and the artist on the stage wants to connect them.” Thorn also credits his uncle with teaching him “street smarts” having coached him during his professional boxing career. Thorn retired from boxing after a record of 14 wins and four losses, saying ‘‘I had taken my career as far as it could have possibly gone’’. Now, Thorn says he is trying to do the same with his music by touring Melbourne next month. ‘‘I want to come out to take my music to a different type of people. ‘‘I really feel I will be able to connect with the Australians.’’ Thorn’s eclectic style is a mix of blues and rock — punchy riffs, melodies with roots in America’s south and lyrics that reflect life experiences. Songs range from the candid I guess I’ll just stay married to the spiritual He touched me. Thorn begun his professional singing career in 1997 and has released 10 albums.

New stomping ground puts spring in step MAZENOD Old Collegians Football Club has hit the ground running since moving grounds at the start of this season. After 18 years of playing at Central Reserve South Oval, the club made the move to the North Oval to share with Richmond Cricket Club in the new, multimillion-dollar facility. Since moving in this February, Mazenod has not looked back, with only one loss so far this Victorian Amateur Football Association section C season. The team has put the disappointment of the 2012 preliminary final loss behind it and is playing winning football. Club president Steve Paolucci said the start to the year was positive for all parts of the club. “The move to the North Oval has really helped unite the club community,” Paolucci said. “Last Saturday we had our annual Founders Day match, and to see hundreds of people packed into the rooms was a great sight. ‘‘Our new rooms provide the players with a great facility and the fans with a terrific spot to watch the game.

‘‘Everyone has really got behind the club following the move and it has flowed down to some great form on field as well.” Mazenod has been boosted by the recruiting of former AFL star Heath Black and Gus Patti and Michael Johnson from Casey Scorpions. “Heath has really brought some fantastic leadership to the club,” Paolucci said. “Having these guys who have played at a higher level, it really sets the standard for the rest of the club.” In addition to the seniors, the rest of the club has also enjoyed a great start to the year. The reserves are entrenched in the top four and the thirds sit on top of their ladder. The under-19 program is also booming, after making the step up to division 2 this season. ‘‘The club has managed to get a really strong squad of 35 players and there is genuine excitement about the under-19s at the moment,’’ Paolucci said. ‘‘We see the future of our club running around each week and we can all feel that there are some exciting times to come.”

Home and hosed: Mazenod players like Michael Johnson are relishing their new home at Central Reserve.

Second-hand Mag Wheels Factory 3, 108/110 Cheltenham Rd, Dandenong

BY EWAN KENNEDY or many years we have been saying that the top-line Holden models, Caprice and at one stage the Statesman, offer astonishing value for money in their class. Compare the big long-wheelbase Holdens with the high end models from the big-name German marques. The Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes S-Class have similar spaciousness and performance to the Holden but cost upwards of three times the price. Of course all this is overly simplistic. People who can afford upwards of $150,000 do so because of the image and prestige it offers. Importantly, the Australian designed and built Holdens usually cope with rough and ready back roads in the bush better than the high-priced imports. Built tough for Australia may sound a bit corny these days, but it still means something if you’re doing endless miles in the middle of nowhere. If you thought Holden Caprice was a bargain before, just look at the prices of the soon to be launched new models. The recom-

F

Upmarket: Relatively conservative styling is well suited to a car in the class of the Holden Caprice. mended retail prices of the Caprice and Caprice V Series have been reduced by an astonishing $10,000. With its eyes firmly on the hire car market Holden has taken the unusual step of only offering the 3.6-litre V6 Caprice with LPG at just $54,990 RRP with six-speed automatic transmission. Caprice features new premium leather front seats, 18-inch alloy wheels and chrome exterior detail. The range-topping Caprice V Series provides V8 performance from its 6.0-litre engine and is priced at only $59,990. It also comes with a six-speed automatic transmis-

sion. On-road costs have to be added to these prices. Both models feature many of the latest hightech items we have seen in the big name German cars for some time now. Caprice has sensor key technology and push button start; satellite navigation with full colour mapping and live traffic updates, and an eight-inch, high-resolution colour touch screen with Holden’s MyLink technology. Major safety items are Auto Park Assist for parallel and right angle parking; Reverse Traffic Alert; Blind Spot Alert; Front and rear parking sensors and a rear view camera; Electric park brake with automatic release; Hill Hold Control; Hill Start Assist; and Trailer Sway Control. Speaking with obvious pride of his new upper crust models, Holden’s Executive Director of Sales and Marketing, Philip Brook, said, “We think we’ve made a smart investment in our long-wheelbase models. Caprice has always been an extremely well designed, well-proportioned large car and the all new interior is particularly important to customers in this segment.”

ustralians are moving away from large cars into smaller ones, but many are refusing to accept any loss of comfort or performance. If possible they would like a solid dash of prestige at the same time. Audi invented the premium small-car category way back in 1996 and has worked hard over the intervening years to maintain its position at the head of the upmarket German field. The introduction of the third generation Audi A3 lifts the game significantly. The company’s designers have come up with a sleek, sporting stance that works beautifully. The shape of the famed Audi single-frame grille provides a focal point that carries back to create a continuous theme over the headlights, then onto the distinctive highlights on the doors. The rear hatch is aimed at emphasising the horizontal shape. At this stage only the five-door hatchback is on sale. New A3 Sportback has a body and wheelbase greater than the outgoing model to improve cabin and luggage space. A clever

SANDOWN jumps racing meets were abandoned on Saturday after heavy rain made the track unusable. The feature events from Saturday’s meeting, the $101,500 Australian Hurdle (3400 metres) and the $101,500 Australian Steeplechase (3900m) will now be run at Sandown as the climax of the 2013 jumps racing season on Wednesday, August 28. Racing Victoria chairman of stewards Terry Bailey walked Sandown on Saturday morning with track manager Tim Bailey and decided there was no choice but to abandon the meeting. “Sandown had 56mm of rain up until 5.30am and it had continued to rain until I left the track at 8am,” Bailey said. “It’s unfortunate for all, but the track was simply too wet and unsafe for racing.” Racing Victoria operations manager Paul Bloodworth explained that there were no suitable options to reschedule the races this week. “We considered a range of options for the conduct of these races and determined that the most suitable one, given the existing program, was

to transfer them to the end of the season where they would remain a focal point. ‘‘Sandown was booked out for much of the coming week for use of its car track and had we transferred the races to Mornington on Monday week it would have impacted on either of these races or the feature jumps races programmed for Bendigo six days later.” Bloodworth added that an early to mid-August date had not been chosen so as to avoid a clash with the South Australian Grand National Hurdle and Grand National Steeplechase. The $80,000 Australia’s Best Pie Competition 2013 Handicap (1600m) for three-year-olds and the $80,000 Le Pine Funerals Plate (2100m) will both be run at Moonee Valley this Wednesday with the existing fields and barriers as they stood at final acceptance time. The Le Pine Funerals Plate will now be run over 2040m. The $100,000 Sportingbet Handicap (1200m) and the $100,000 Le Pine Funerals Plate (1400m) for mares have both been added to the Flemington program this Saturday. All other races will not be rescheduled.

BY ROY WARD PARKDALE Cricket Club has applied to enter the Dandenong District Cricket Association next season. The DDCA executive is expected to consider the application at its next meeting on June 12. Parkdale president James Seeary is hopeful his club and its four senior sides will get a favourable outcome but know the decision now rests with DDCA clubs. ‘‘It’s a pretty big change for the club. I think the only move made previously was when the old Federal competition was rolled into the Victorian Turf Cricket Association,’’ he said. Seeary said the club had looked at moving out of the VTCA after an increase of costs to play in the competition next season, especially pertaining to higher affiliation fees and demands to buy new covers. 30

THE DANDENONG JOURNAL \ JUNE 3, 2013

‘‘Our players don’t agree with some of the structural parts of the VTCA, so we looked at the DDCA and met with people from the association and were suitably impressed. ‘‘It will mean slightly more travel because in the VTCA we play against teams like Mentone and Dingley who are just down the road from us.’’ The Parkdale Junior Cricket Club will not be making the move with the senior club as the juniors play in a very localised competition and are believed to be happy in their current situation. Parkdale senior sides are expected to continue playing their home games at Jerry Green Reserve, Parkdale and at the Parkdale Secondary College. Parkdale officials are yet to decide which divisions their lower sides will play in. The top team is likely to be entered into the DDCA turf 2 competition.

Rain gets jump on racing meet BY ROY ASPINALL

A STRING of tactical victories led Calder Cannons to a comfortable 42-point win against Dandenong Stingrays in TAC Cup at Highgate Reserve on Saturday. For the second time this season the Cannons held their opposition goalless to half-time, on the way to winning 14.5 (89) to 6.11 (47). Dandenong (5-3) slipped to fourth with the loss while Calder (4-4) consolidated its top eight standing by moving into sixth position. With the start delayed for 30 minutes for ground maintenance it was Calder that exploded out of the

blocks with five unanswered goals. While the Stingrays did enjoy momentum at times in the remaining three quarters, Calder’s intelligence close to goal always kept the scoreboard a one-sided affair. The Stingrays lifted after a quartertime spray from coach Graeme Yeats, who named names as he pointed out instances of lax concentration and unaccountable defence. But wresting territorial dominance from the Stingrays was a defining moment in the Cannons’ win, with Calder walking to the half-time break having given up only five points in spite of playing much of the second term in its back half.

The third term was five goals to three Calder’s way. Vic Metro defender Jake Lever posted himself at the top of the 50-metre arc and was noticeable trapping the ball in the Cannons’ forward line, either intercept marking or making a contest on a number of attempted clearing kicks. The final quarter was a more open affair, with Dandenong finding their run and a number of players growing in confidence. It was a tease for what the match could have been if the Stingrays had been on their game from the opening bounce, as Zak Jones, Will Hartung and Jack Lonie all finished strongly.

Rangers hang tough to outlast Miners in thriller IT took double overtime but Dandenong Rangers men finally snatched a much-needed win with an away victory over Ballarat Miners at Ballarat in the South East Australian Basketball League on Saturday night. The Rangers won the match 103-101 with Andrew Harms (24 points), Tony Lewis (23 points, 16 rebounds) and Daequon Montreal (23 points, eight rebounds) all playing major roles in the win, which kept the Rangers in the SEABL east conference top four.

While the Rangers got plenty of baskets, they struggled to keep down Miners trio Matt Hanson (26 points), Keena Young (25 points) and Lucas Walker (25 points). The Rangers women had a less enjoyable trip to Ballarat, losing to Ballarat Rush 75-70 with WNBL star Alice Kunek lighting up the Rangers with 34 points and eight rebounds. Teenager Lauren Scherf led the Rangers with 18 points and seven rebounds, with Amelia Todhunter adding 17 points and Faith Probst 13.

Bulls pull out stops for big game BY ROY WARD NOBLE Park is poised to bring in the big guns for old rivals Balwyn this Saturday. Star midfielders Stewart Kemperman and Tyson Mitchem, along with forward Matt Dunne and former Port Melbourne player Dan Keely, are all in line come into the Bulls side for one of the biggest games in the Eastern Football League division 1 season at Pat Wright Senior Oval this Saturday. The Bulls and the Tigers sit on top of the ladder heading into the stand-alone match, which is the only EFL game as the rest of the league has a bye for the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. Bulls coach Mick Fogarty, who lost Kemper-

man, Dunne and Mitchem before Saturday’s game due to niggling injuries, said his side couldn’t wait to get out on field against the Tigers. Fogarty said he was hopeful all three players would be fit to face the Tigers along with Keely, who is in line for selection after injury prevented him from playing in the opening rounds. Keely has played the the last three games in the Bulls reserves and Fogarty is confident the former Borough player is ready to contribute. ‘‘The three players who pulled out on Saturday should all come up for Balwyn,’’ Fogarty said. ‘‘Keely is just about ready to go and we’re pretty excited to see him on field. He has had three reserves games. We could have rushed him

in sooner but wanted to make sure he could contribute straight away.’’ The Bulls warmed up for the match with a hard-fought 45-point win over South Croydon in very wet conditions at Cheong Park on Saturday. Fogarty said his side kept to the team’s game plan and reaped the rewards in very trying conditions. Sam Monaghan, Vergim Faik, Andrew McConnell and Beau Cosson were named in the best players and Shayne Allan kicked three goals. ‘‘The conditions were really tough and the ground pretty muddy and in three inches of water,’’ Fogarty said. ‘‘We got numbers around footy and put on plenty of pressure. We played a basic game plan in those conditions and the boys followed that to a T.’’

Pumas take major scalp THE crowd roared, the Lyndale players hugged and punched the air. The Pumas had won nothing more than a round 8 Southern Football League division 3 match against the previously undefeated Mount Waverley but that win was a rich reward for the transformation the Pumas have made in the space of one off-season. Lyndale went winless last season and were little better in 2011, but this year’s Pumas are fit, hardrunning and under new coach Rodney Benstead have five wins from their first eight games, including the scalp of the highly rated Mountain Lions. With the Mountain Lions holding a slight lead at three-quarter time at Barry Powell Reserve, the Pumas ravaged the visitors, kicking eight goals to one in the final term to storm to a 20-point victory which the Pumas richly celebrated. “It was a really even contribution from all our players that is what made me so proud,” Benstead said. “I heard one of their players say ‘do you blokes think this is a grand final?’ But I think people have to understand where the Lyndale Football Club has come from and it’s exciting to win like this.” Damian Wilsnatch was named best player for the Pumas while Matthew Stuart and Trent Day led the charge in the final term with team lifting goals. Benstead said the Pumas’ turnaround was the result of hard work and a simple game plan. “Everyone wants to know what the secret is but I really just keep it pretty simple,” he said. “I come from a fitness background so I think if they are fit and prepared to do the basics of football, do the non-negotiates, and just play for one another then we are happy. “We want to keep improving. Being consistent and winning each week is our next step.” But with his side kicking 11 behinds and disposing of the ball poorly when approaching the attacking 50-metre line, Mountain Lions coach Nick Smith said his side had not made the most of

The Bulls won 11.12 (78) to South Croydon 4.9 (33). Noble Park was also buoyed by the stellar AFL debut from two-time Bulls premiership player Kyle Martin for Collingwood on Friday night.
