Wyndham Vale single mother Kylie, 33, burst into tears when she received her marching orders from the real-estate agent on Friday. Kylie and her nine-year-old son have 16 days to leave. “It was my son’s birthday on Saturday so I had to try and keep it as normal as I can for him,” said Kylie, who did not want her surname printed. “My son started crying straight away when I told him we have to move, saying: ‘Mum, I want to go to the same school’ ... I kept saying as long as we’re together, we’ll be OK. But I can’t promise that we will. “I have no idea what I’ll do. I’ve bought a blow-up mattress because we will probably have to sleep in the car.” Kylie has been registered with a job placement agency for months, but has had no success. Financial strain became “unbearable” after she lost more than $130 a fortnight on January 1, when she was forced off parenting payments and on to Newstart. Fortnightly payments of about $850 haven’t left her with enough money to stay afloat. “My bills are sky-high,” she said. “It’s just a headache. You’re trying to tread water the whole time. “I’ve never been in this situation before. It wouldn’t matter if it was just me, but it’s my son, too.” \ NT

A steep increase in the number of renters being evicted from their homes has reached crisis point, according to Wyndham social workers. Police are executing eviction warrants on 22 rental properties in the municipality every month, with families feeling the sting of spiralling unemployment and Centrelink cuts more than anywhere else in Victoria. Figures obtained from the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal reveal the number of eviction warrants executed in Wyndham has risen 40 per cent since 2011 to more than 263 in the year to July. Social services warn a new class of homelessness is emerging in the municipality, which has the some of the Melbourne’s lowest median rents but the state’s highest numbers of jobseekers and single parents surviving on welfare. Financial counsellors, community lawyers and emergency relief providers will form a working group with Wyndham police and the Sheriff ’s Office to increase early intervention and keep vulnerable tenants out of arrears.

y 11-year old son recently came home with a new piece of technology. His school had given every child from grade 4 up a computer tablet for no upfront cost to us parents. It also came with a contract that we had to sign, stating that while our child had this piece of hardware we were responsible for any damage. I signed the contract and, as recommended by the school, insured the tablet for $1200 in case it was lost or stolen, under my contents insurance with an excess of $500. Great, I thought. Until, three weeks later, my darling son smashed the screen. Looking at the tablet, you’d think he’d taken a sledgehammer to it. In reality, he dropped it about 30 centimetres trying to get it into his bag. Upon approaching the school’s IT department I was told it would cost $450 to replace the screen, and, of course, this had to be done by the computer company who had the contract with the school. A quick ring around told me that other repairers could do it for anywhere between $200 and $360. So not only did I not ask for this piece of delicate technology, my insurance was useless and I had to find $450 to cover the cost of something that doesn’t, and will never, actually belong to me. On top of all that, whoever chose this computer to give to children as young as 9 and 10 years old selected one that is almost impossible to find protective cases and screen covers for. Cutting edge technology is all very well for our children. But at what cost to us parents? \ EMMA SUTCLIFFE

roads need billions: Report WYNDHAM
Close to $1 billion is needed to reduce congestion on Wyndham’s roads, according to the Auditor-General. In his report on outer Melbourne’s transport infrastructure, John Doyle found that growth areas needed between $4.1 billion and $5.1 billion to improve traffic flow. Wyndham requires the biggest share of the funding, with between $975 million and $1.3 billion needed for duplications and upgrades. The municipality also needs more public transport services, with residents waiting about 55 minutes between buses. ‘‘Inadequate public transport and growing gaps in the road network in these communities are creating barriers to mobility, including access to critical services, education and employment opportunities,’’ the report said. “In turn, these deficiencies are increasing car dependence, pollution and exacerbating traffic congestion at significant community cost.” The report stated more than $6 billion was required for rail projects in growth areas, while $197 million in recurrent funding was needed to address public transport gaps.
Wyndham mayor Heather Marcus said Mr Doyle’s findings were proof that the municipality needed a cap on residential growth. As reported by the Weekly, the council plans to limit new developments to 3000 houses a year to allow essential infrastructure to be built. “Over a quarter of Wyndham’s residents are commuting for more than
two hours a day, which is the highest of any municipality in the state according to recent figures from the Department of Health,” Cr Marcus said. Cr Marcus called on the government to immediately commit to funding an outer-suburban arterial road program in next year’s budget. \ LAURA LITTLE
labor spruiks independent body for projects OPPOSITION RESPONSE
Road and public transport projects in growth areas would be awarded funding on their merit under a Labor government, according to opposition leader Daniel Andrews. Mr Andrews said if elected Labor would create an independent body, Infrastructure Victoria, to advise the government on the funding and timing of projects across
Victoria. Infrastructure Victoria would also help identify transport needs and consider alternative financing options. Mr Andrews said people expected governments to build roads, transport projects, schools and hospitals in a timely manner. He said infrastructure projects praised by Auditor-General John Doyle – including the construction of new train stations at Officer
and Williams Landing and the Craigieburn bypass – were Labor initiatives. Mr Andrews said Mr Doyle’s report was proof that the government had its transport priorities wrong. “When Denis Napthine spends $8 billion on [east-west link], it means that other transport projects like new train lines, roads and tram lines that are urgently needed now won’t be built for decades,” he said. \ LL

‘no strategy’ to tackle transport backlog: report “more than a generation to materialise”. Mr Doyle’s findings are no surprise to growth-area councils, which in February warned the government that a liveability gap was “creating two Melbournes”. The report found that $10 billion was required to address the immediate infrastructure backlog, but that there was “no clear statewide strategy for addressing the long-standing backlog of transport infrastructure for established growth areas”. “There is little assurance this backlog will be addressed or that the emerging transport infrastructure needs of new growth areas will be delivered when required,” the report stated. “[There is also] little assurance that
The state government is under attack for failing growth areas, with a new report revealing it has no strategy for addressing infrastructure gaps in Melbourne’s outer suburbs. Auditor-General John Doyle’s report into transport infrastructure and services in growth areas, which was released last Wednesday, found that public transport and roads in areas such as Wyndham, Hume and Whittlesea have been inadequately funded by successive state governments. The report said funding to address transport needs in growth areas often took
current statewide investments in transport infrastructure are effectively targeted or soundly based.” The report criticised Public Transport Victoria, VicRoads and the Growth Areas Authority (GAA) for failing to properly plan for the delivery of infrastructure and services in growth areas. Mr Doyle warned that the infrastructure lag would worsen as new housing developments were approved by the GAA, urging the government and its agencies to come up with innovative transport solutions and funding options. He called for transport projects to be funded on a needs basis.
GAA chief operating officer Paul Byrne said the organisation acknowledged the recommendations and had already begun working to address the key issues raised. Transport Minister Terry Mulder blamed the former Labor government for the shortage of transport infrastructure, and said the government was “addressing this massive backlog”. Asked how the government would ensure the infrastructure backlog was addressed, Mr Mulder would only say the government was on track to deliver a “comprehensive reform agenda which would bolster the way infrastructure and services were provided in Melbourne’s growth areas”. \ LAURA LITTLE

A community reference group will be created to help guide future Wyndham council decisions on the Wests Road tip. Councillors conceded that in the past the community had not been properly consulted about the facility. In a report to council, sustainable development director Dean Rochfort said the group would advise council on future decisions and help improve the community’s understanding of how the landfill operated. The committee will include five residents, an independent chair and four council representatives, including the mayor. The Environment Protection Authority, Metropolitan Waste Management Group and Sustainability Victoria will also be represented. Western Region Environment Centre director Harry Van Moorst, who submitted a petition urging the creation of a consultation group to workshop ways to keep the landfill below ground, wanted the committee to include an equal number of council and community nominees. \ LL
ith a new restaurant, revamped bars, renovated TAB (including the latest in

And there’s a playground to keep the kids entertained while parents relax in any of these areas and order from the Italian Sports Clubs delicious a la carte menu or the wide variety of set menus. Assistant Manager Vincent Sanza points out “Our food is cooked from scratch so meals are delivered fresh to diners’ plates. We pride ourselves on offering a better dining experience in a more relaxed atmosphere.” The Club aims to exceed their customers’ expectations and one way they do this is by providing staff training every two months in areas such as coffee-making and wine tasting to deliver sound advice and service to their visitors. The Italian Sports Club began as the Italian Social Club in the late 1960s. Today’s site opened on the 10th August 1974 with members providing donations and holding fundraisers. Through their bocce competitions membership flourished… and now the venue has grown into an impressive flagship Wyndham location with something for visitors of all ages.

A large landfill should not necessarily be “a reality of modern life” (August 21).

Ten days out from the most important federal election since the Howard era ended, big-picture achievements stand to be undermined by an election campaigned on parochial hip pockets. Tony Abbott’s backing of the Napthine government’s east-west road tunnel and its Port of Hastings-Dandenong freight axis come at the expense of critically needed public transport infrastructure extensions to the booming ’burbs of Melbourne’s west and north. A new Auditor-General’s report slams the state government inaction on transport solutions for Melbourne’s growth areas. The report calls for a realistic and effective wholeof-government approach.

no parole for double murderer The man who murdered Sarah Cafferkey and dumped her body in Point Cook will remain in prison for life. Supreme Court Justice Kevin Bell said Steven James Hunter, 47, who has now murdered two women, did not deserve to ever be released back into the community after pleading guilty to “this most heinous crime”. Sentencing Hunter to life imprisonment with no parole, Justice Bell said Hunter’s prospects for rehabilitation were poor and he would always remain a risk to the community. Hunter had repeatedly stabbed 22-year-old Ms Cafferkey after an argument at his Bacchus Marsh apartment. He later put her body in the boot of his car and drove to a house in Point Cook where he placed it in a wheelie bin. Ms Cafferkey’s mother, Noelle Dickson, is angry the justice system released a convicted killer to let him kill again. Coroner Ian Gray has confirmed he will preside over a coronial inquest into Ms Cafferkey’s death. \ NT with THE AGE

PRESSURE OVER firefighter CANCER compo PARLIAMENT
Western suburbs firefighters and the Greens have accused the state government of attempting to “kill off ” legislation that would give firefighters easier access to cancer compensation. The government last week announced that it would set up an assessment panel to assist in the management of professional and volunteer firefighter claims. But said it was “not convinced” of the link between firefighting and certain types of cancers. The panel, to be managed by WorkCover, comes after continued pressure on the government to back the legislation after international studies found firefighters have a higher rate of cancer due to the chemicals. Monash University researchers confirmed in a letter to state MPs that the science was settled and that “waiting for more research findings leads to unacceptable delays”. A Greens bill that passed the Federal Parliament in 2011 removed the onus of proof on Commonwealth-employed firefighters who work at airports or in the ACT. Western Metropolitan Greens MP Colleen Hartland proposed similar laws in Victoria that would also cover volunteers. She has pledged to begin fund-raising to

More women will be able to give birth at Werribee Mercy Hospital, with its maternity intake to be increased by 20 per cent. The hospital has received extra state government funding, allowing it to hire more obstetricians, midwives, anesthetists and nurses. The funding boost means an extra 450 women can give birth at the hospital this financial year. Mercy Public Hospitals executive director Linda Mellors said it was expected 2680 babies would be born at this hospital this year. “We are already receiving bookings to fulfil the higher number of birth this year,” she said. “Our most pressing priority is to increase maternity services access so that more women from Wyndham can choose to give birth locally.” Plans to increase Werribee Mercy’s maternity services were flagged earlier this year after it was revealed the hospital was turning local women away. \ LL

airy Innovation Australia, housed in an unassuming brick building on Werribee’s Princes Highway between Melbourne University’s Veterinary School and Werribee police station, is responsible for testing and developing many of the yoghurts, cheeses and long-life products we consume. The 35 scientists and engineers who work in the centre spend countless hours researching ways to improve our favourite dairy foods. Their findings are passed on to some of the nation’s biggest dairy companies, which use the information to create new foods and tweak existing products. The centre also prides itself on helping the companies make their products in a more efficient and sustainable way, reducing water and electricity use and increasing value for money. Dairy Innovation Australia opened in Werribee six years ago, funded by the dairy industry. Members, which include Murray Goulburn, Tatura Milk, Fonterra, Parmalat, National Foods, Warrnambool Cheese and Butter, and national body Dairy Australia, produce more than 70 per cent of our milk and 65 per cent of manufactured dairy products. The centre spends about $9 million a year on research and development. Most of its research is pre-competitive, meaning it is shared with all its members. Commercial manager Mark Fink says it might seem a strange decision to base the centre in Werribee, hundreds of kilometres from Victoria’s dairy regions, but it makes perfect sense to the industry. “The Victorian dairy industry makes up 70 per cent of Australia’s dairy industry,” Fink says. “Melbourne is central to the dairy regions, and in Werribee we are close to the Port of Melbourne.” The centre has a freezer to store live bacterial cultures used to make 50 per cent of the nation’s cheese. The cultures are stored in pots at minus 40 degrees until they are ready to be sent to cheese-makers. It’s Donald Maxwell’s job to oversee the development of the cultures. The Point Cook resident has worked for Dairy Innovation Australia for two years. Along with the other scientists and technicians who work in the centre’s microbiology lab, Maxwell is responsible for creating new strains of bacteria that can be used in cheese cultures. Maxwell says it is important that the lab continually creates new strains of bacteria because existing strains can be susceptible to phage – viruses that infect the bacteria and prevent cultures from transforming milk sugars into lactic acid. “If we have a phage attack, we would lose production of a cheese,” he says. “Phage kills the cultures.” Maxwell says that to ensure there is a constant supply of healthy, phage-resistant cultures available to dairy companies, the lab challenges the cultures it develops with all the phage it has. Cultures that pass the test are given specially developed food so that they multiply and are then stored in the freezer. Maxwell says one of the challenges the lab faces is creating bacterial strains that don’t affect the taste of a product. “The product needs to taste the same when it is made with the new cultures. Cultures can deliver different types of flavours, so we have to watch for that.” He says the work done in the lab is essential to the dairy industry, helping it to compete with international companies. “Our research and development is helping the industry. Over the last 10 years the dairy industry has had a tough time.” Geraldine Walker loves exploring the science behind food. The food technologist works in Dairy Innovation Australia’s sensory lab, testing, tweaking and taking a close look at foods such as milk, cheese, chocolate

It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services. GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year. F•S•A/DPC0018

Mindful of the struggles Australian families and workers have to pay their bills, or simply get by, DLP Senator Madigan refused to keep the $55,000 pay rise given to all parliamentarians. Instead he has started a Grant program to buy Australian made equipment for struggling Trade and Agricultural schools.

PROPERTY OF THE WEEK
WERRIBEE \ 9 ST ANDREWS DRIVE Spotlessly presented on a 1000-square metre (approx) block, this is one of those rare properties that impresses on practically every level. From its wide drive-through side yard to its pool, north-facing pergola and light-filled family-meals area, the house has depth, charm, and low-maintenance living. A study and main bedroom have large recessed windows and are set either side of the tiled entrance hallway. The study is introduced by leadlight bifold
doors and contains a plethora of floor-to-ceiling shelving, cabinets and storage compartments, making it ideal for use as an office. The main bedroom, at the front, has a walk-in wardrobe and a neat en suite. Three additional bedrooms are at the back. One bedroom has a built-in wardrobe, and two have fitted built-in wardrobes, bright, child-friendly feature walls and large windows with backyard views. All bedrooms are on the south side of the house, which stays cooler during the summer.
Sweeney Estate Agents Werribee \ 9974 0922
Living areas include a carpeted open lounge room and dining area, both with blockout blinds and elegant drapery, while a tiled family-meals area beyond captures maximum amounts of light through a wide window arrangement.

Sliding doors nearby lead to the big pergola with northern aspect and ceiling fan. Other Price \ $489,000
highlights include the heated pool bordered by a lemon tree and a steel shed, plus the gravelled side yard leading to a parking bay wide enough to fit boats and caravans side by side. Other notable features include ducted heating and cooling, four 2500-litre water tanks and meticulous front and back landscaping. The property is also handy to Werribee Sports and Fitness Centre and a stroll to Thomas Chirnside Primary School. \ MARK BUNKER

Werribee 19 River Park Court What a dream team. You team at Ray White Werribee proved to us we made the right decision in asking you to look after our real estate needs. We heard your competitors tell us they had big sales teams and large networks, and that their company had been operating in Wyndham for many years. But what you brought to our campaign on top of your local and relevant network was a company brand that portrays quality, integrity and honesty. From the beginning to the end of the process we were impressed with how it all ran. The final sale price was higher than we could have hoped for. As we look back we continue to be amazed with how smoothly and successful the sales process was undertaken.

New homes & land
Tarneit \ 92a Hummingbird Boulevard Those searching for that family-friendly feel may find it at developer Asset1’s community The Heartlands in Tarneit. Larger lots are available from $190,000 within stage 23, which is adjacent to the proposed school site. Delivering resident amenities early for the burgeoning community, Asset1 sales director Mark Adams said buyers were becoming more selective when choosing the ideal location to live and invest for the future. “We get a lot of buyers not just looking for
what will suit them now but what will suit them down the track when their family expands,” Adams said. “Our buyers see the benefits of purchasing a property that fulfils their every need and even lets them indulge in things they may not often get the chance to do, like swimming in the pools at the residents-only recreation centre Club Heartlands, or walking through the community’s seven-hectare parklands.” The Heartlands is also close to schools and less than half an hour from Melbourne’s CBD. Adams said the community has attracted a range of buyers from professional couples to
families seeking to combine their careers with a quieter suburban lifestyle. The community is growing by the day, with a further 39 families being welcomed in coming months to the estate’s latest sold-out precinct, stage 5. “With titles expected to be delivered before Christmas, The Heartlands is braced for a flurry of activity during the warmer months when builders take advantage of drier weather to begin construction on several new houses.” For more information on The Heartlands community, contact the sales team, drop in to the on-site office or visit the website. \

\ CORRIE PERKIN MANS UP WITH SEVEN BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FATHER’S DAY
ather’s Day looms and our little bookshop is manning up. The beautiful hot pink and pastel-toned book covers that dominated our shelves during the Mother’s Day sales have been replaced by lots of non-fiction titles – usually with loud, red and black covers – featuring stories about bikie gangs, former AFL greats, business gurus, beer, 1970s rock bands, the Australian Labor Party (and how it went bung), best wines, and better fishing spots. There are some real gems among this year’s batch. The federal election and some new thinking about the ALP’s future have prompted a host of politics titles. Business books have moved on from the Wall Street collapse of 2007-08 and are focused on future strategies and new growth markets. There are lots of sport, history and autobiography offerings, while November’s 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination and next year’s centenary of the start of World War I are also creating interest. There are many reasons books make great gifts but, when contemplating what to buy your dad or special bloke this Father’s Day, consider the following: dads too often get slotted into the too-hard-to-buy-for category. Unlike a pair of socks or a packet of golf tees, a book shows that you have spent time considering your choice, and dads appreciate this. They also love to hear why you chose the title you did. Immediately, a fabulous book dialogue begins. And books are affordable. Just ask your local bookseller for advice and a tour of the shop’s range, and you’ll find some great titles for under $15. Remember, also, that many parents are under 55 and have been greatly influenced by popular culture – TV, film,
contemporary art, advertising, the web, social media, rock music and the like. These topics are catalysts for some terrific books. Enter the 100 Best Albums of All Time by Toby Creswell and Craig Mathieson ($49.95, Hardie Grant), our pick of the 2013 Father’s Day crop. Well researched and compiled by two of Australia’s most respected music writers, this book also features photographs and album cover images, and contains a few list surprises that will certainly provoke debate. A beautiful hardcover, we expect 100 Best Albums to be one of our bestsellers between now and Christmas. Barbecue books generally leave us cold; their blokey formats and insipid recipes too often lack imagination. Then we discovered Bon Appetit magazine’s new The Grilling Book ($50, Andrews McMeel Publishing). This is a truly beautiful barbecue book and includes cooking tips and more than 350 recipes. As a rule, we avoid US cookery books. Their recipes often don’t translate well locally, while their food stylists and photographers lack the creativity of their highly talented Australian counterparts. But The Grilling Book defies the norm. In the words of British-born, New York-based chef April Bloomfield, “If you’ve never grilled before, or have an expert on hand, this book is a must’’. Killing Fairfax: Packer, Murdoch & The Ultimate Revenge by Pamela Williams ($39.99, HarperCollins) and Colleen Ryan’s Fairfax: The Rise And Fall ($32.95 MUP) recently arrived in bookshops. Both books examine the Sydney-based Fairfax media empire

and the predators, bad managers and destructive forces that have affected its fortunes. Media junkies will appreciate these two riveting accounts, while anyone interested in business generally will find that the books offer much food for thought. The 2013 calendar’s aligning of the Ashes series, the US golf tour, the recent Tour de France, footy, rugby and – just around the corner – the spring racing carnival, has provided publishers with many book opportunities. One to watch is Amen: How Adam Scott Won the US Masters and Broke the Curse of Augusta National ($27.99, Allen and Unwin). Sydney sports writers Will Swanton and Brent Read teamed up to produce a lively narrative of Adam Scott’s April US Masters campaign. The book includes interviews with Scott, his father Phil, and Australian golfing greats Greg Norman, Peter Thomson, Ian Baker-Finch and Jack Newton as they reflect on the significance of the Atlanta victory. For the man who loves architecture, we urge you to consider Thames and Hudson’s pictorial tribute to one of Australia’s finest architects.
Robin Boyd’s Living In Australia ($59.95, Thames and Hudson) was first published in 1970 and has been reproduced with original photographs by the late Mark Strizic, a friend of Boyd, as well as additional images by John Gollings. Boyd’s design philosophy – beautifully articulated and still relevant more than four decades later – is accompanied by contemporary perspectives of the master’s contribution by architects Kerstin Thompson and Rachel Neeson. And finally, our feel-good/self-improvement/change your life book of the year. The Good Life: What Makes a Life Worth Living? by Hugh Mackay ($29.99, Pan Macmillan) may cause dad to smile and wonder whether you are trying to make a point. Perhaps you are. Perhaps we should all strive to identify behaviours that can lead to a happier life. Since the 1980s, social researcher Mackay has delved into the lives of Australians, probing and observing and listening. “The Good Life draws heavily on those stories,’’ he says in his introduction. His conclusions are fascinating and uplifting – exactly what dad deserves on Father’s Day. \ email@example.com

Time out \ John Hazeldene visits an unheralded corner of Vietnam
uge limestone formations jut up through the green sea of rice paddies, their pale grey stone frosted with the darker green of jungle foliage. A small river winds gently through the landscape, while overhead dark storm clouds gather, colouring the sky gunmetal grey. My scooter speeds down the raised dirt road as I cling to the hunched back of my Vietnamese driver, a man half my size. He raises his arm and points off to a distant village, his voice drowned out by the high-pitched drone of the engine. It makes no difference – I can’t speak Vietnamese and the constant vibration through the scooter’s seat has numbed my lower torso to the point that all my
concentration is required to stay on the bike. Located among the rice paddies of the Red River Delta, Ninh Binh is roughly two hours south of Hanoi by train or bus, depending on traffic. While there is little to do in the town itself except drink large quantities of the incredibly cheap and locally brewed bia hoi, a type of draught beer, the town is an excellent location from which to explore the surrounding area. A scooter with driver can be hired for $15 to $20 a day, allowing access to most of the region. Hiring a scooter solo is somewhat ill-advised as roads can be rough and local drivers seem to alternate between insane and deranged.
If you can find a good driver, it’s worth visiting nearby Tam Coc, one of Vietnam’s most spectacular sights. Boats can be hired to explore the meandering waterways and travel through the limestone caves and mountainous peaks that dot the region. Tourists are usually treated to the sight of their rowers paddling the boat with their feet. While less touristy than the equally beautiful Halong Bay, it’s still best to visit early morning or late afternoon, when vendors are less likely to tout their wares to you. Other nearby sights include Cuc Phuong National Park, Bich Dong Pagoda and the torturous 500-step climb up Ma Yen, worth it for the stunning views of the surrounding region. \

BMW 328i driveaway 6.3L/100km
ack in 1988, your correspondent had the opportunity to drive a priceless 1930s supercharged Mercedes-Benz SS roadster, a rare bahn stormer usually kept in cotton wool at the German company’s Stuttgart museum but brought to Australia for our country’s bicentenary. We are talking about a car in which Adolf Hitler would not seem out of place, with big chrome exhaust pipes hanging out of a bonnet long enough to land a Messerschmitt. With a seven-litre engine and genuine 40,000 kilometres on the clock, this car was a dream on polished wire-spoke wheels and regarded as the fastest and finest vehicle of its era. Well, what a disappointment. Even by 1988 standards, this masterpiece of 1930s automotive engineering drove like a barge in a molasses canal. This experience was a salutary lesson on the progress of car technology: they don’t make them like they used to, for good reason. The best cars to grace our roads are rolling out of showrooms now, delivering an unprecedented level of safety, efficiency, comfort, durability and cleanliness at real-world prices way below anything that went before. We decided to have a look at three of the premier vehicles of this modern era, at least in our humble opinion. This is no easy task, but we have given it a go.
First car in our dream garage is the Audi RS5, a glamour puss with sharp claws. This German two-door sports coupe is not the fastest car around, nor the most luxurious or most powerful. It is not even the swiftest Audi, with that honour claimed by the $350,800 (cough) V10 R8. But the $161,400 RS5 does everything so effortlessly, with so much class and – when pushed – blood-pumping excitement, that it gets our vote. The classic steel fist in a velvet glove, the RS5 can accelerate with a ferocity that seems to warp the scenery, yet tootles around town without drawing a second glance. The 331kW 4.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine plays such a sonorous soundtrack that we wonder if many RS5 owners bother to switch on the audio system. Unlike its main rivals – the BMW M3 and Mercedes-Benz C63 – the Audi enjoys the benefit of an all-wheel-drive quattro drivetrain (the others are rear-drive only), meaning an extra margin of grip under hard acceleration. Audi recently gave the RS5 a few tweaks in a mid-model refresh, and added a new string to the “RS” bow – the RS4 Avant wagon. Essentially, this is a more family-friendly five-door version of the RS5, but with the attitude. Better still, it is cheaper, at $149,400 (plus on-road costs).

“the detroit-built holden volt is the electric car you can live with” battery power with the peace of mind that a 1.4-litre petrol engine is lurking under the bonnet ready to take over as an electricity generator should the electrons evaporate. General Motors claims the Volt can cover about 60 kilometres on a full charge of its lithium-ion battery stored under the car. We commuted to our office (19 kilometres) on electric power every day for a week, topping up the battery by plugging into a household socket every couple of days, and might not have used one millilitre of petrol except that we deliberately ran the battery down to experience the petrol engine kicking in (hardly noticeable). Then a remarkable thing happened: we used so little petrol in this mode (3.9 litres per 100 kilometres) that we wondered why all petrol cars aren’t designed to run like this – an engine creating electricity to drive the wheels via an electric motor (diesel railway locomotives have been using this system for decades). The penalty for a petrol-electric drivetrain is weight, with batteries and extra mechanical bibs and bobs driving up the mass to a not-inconsiderable 1700 kilograms. But you would hardly notice from behind the wheel, such is the thrust of the torquey electric motors (Volt has two in sequence) and admirable handling characteristics. At $59,990 for the Volt, this technology does not come cheap, but with a remarkably high-tech interior, including the first touch-sensitive console buttons, and a high level of equipment, the Volt is not bad value by any measure. \ email@example.com

Our second choice for our three-car garage of dreams would be another German car, the BMW 328i, which gets our vote as the best all-rounder on the market. Launched in Australia last year, this car is powered by the Munich company’s new breed of turbo-charged four-cylinder petrol engine, called N20, which, when mated with the advanced eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, delivers the performance of a six with the fuel efficiency of a four. Other car makers, such as Mercedes, VW Group and Ford, have also headed down this route, to the great benefit of customers and the environment. Better fuel consumption means less CO₂, not to mention less pain at the pump. But lest someone thinks BMW has turned the 3 Series into a sombre, grey killjoy, rest easy: the latest model is nippy, silky to drive and, thanks to a slightly softer suspension than before, less jarring on the backside. It is still a little tight in the rear seat, thanks to the long-snout, rear-drive architecture, but we would gladly live with it. BMW offers its 3 Series with a wide range of petrol, diesel, four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines, not to mention a long list of expensive accessories, but for our money, the mid-range $65,900 328i is the pick. Our final choice is something out of left field, and it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. The petrol-electric “range extender” Holden Volt wins our vote not just because of its game-changing technology but because it also drives surprisingly well. The Detroit-built Volt is the electric car you can live with, enabling the owner to cover commuting and errands on

The 19th race of the Footscray Cycling Club’s winter road season was held at the hilly and difficult She Oaks circuit in the Brisbane Ranges. The field had to contend with some serious climbing and a long, sweeping downhill run that demands a rider’s all. It was 41-year-old Ascot Vale resident Miles DaCosta who took out Saturday’s A-grade race, shedding veteran Geoff Robertson on the last lap to take the win. The B grade was taken out in dominating fashion by Ben Costin. Despite a slight mechanical problem with his bike, the 34-year-old paramedic looked the goods all day, making his move on the last lap to come in ahead of Mark Micallef and Tom Ainsworth. “I wanted to drop the sprinters like Mark Micallef and I noticed I had a break so I kept the pace up and kept my gap,” he said. The C-grade and D-grade races were taken out by father-daughter duo Andrew and Ruby Gannon of Brunswick Cycling Club. \

fired-up woodsmen make light work of kangaroos wounds and front up against the defending champion Altona on Sunday. The Vikings coolly disposed of St Albans in the elimination final.

Paul Harris was named best on ground. The Magpies will get a shot at Manor Lakes, the upstart side that has beaten them in their past two encounters, in the preliminary final, back at Crofts Reserve on Sunday. The Lakes had a tough time of it against Glenorden, losing by 64 points, and will have to cash in their double chance. \ LANCE JENKINSON
Spotswood has sent a loud and clear message to the rest of the competition that it means business in the Western Region Football League division 1 finals. The Woodsmen, hellbent on atoning for last year’s one-point loss to Altona Vikings in the grand final, got off to a finals flyer with an 88-point annihilation of Sunshine Kangaroos in the qualifying final at Chirnside Park on Saturday. The match was done and dusted by half-time, with the Woodsmen leading 64-7. The day never improved for Kangaroos coach Brett Jacobs, who described it as the “worst effort” of the season from his players.

tigers IN top exit Football
Werribee Districts have exited the Victorian Amateur Football Association on a winning note. The Tigers have played their final game in the metro-wide competition before joining the locally based Western Region Football League. For the game against Parkdale Vultures, they had an added incentive to perform strongly, with long-time coach Kirk Norton retiring. The Tigers capped the day with a 26-point win over the Vultures at Soldiers Reserve on Saturday. “You could see the intensity the boys played with,” Tigers president Rod Harrington said. “They wanted to send him [Norton] off in the best possible fashion.” The Tigers claimed the wooden spoon but finished the season with two wins from their last three games. The young squad showed a vast improvement on the heavy losses it received earlier in the year. Norton has set up the next coach with an exciting crop of youngsters for a new era in the WRFL. “The improvement a lot of these young guys have made from where they were at the start of the year to where they are now, they’ve come on in leaps and bounds,” Harrington said. “It’s rather encouraging for us moving forward.” Werribee Districts had a 15-year stay in the
VAFA. The Tigers’ goal was always to push into the premier divisions, but some at VAFA headquarters did not think that day would come. “Michael Sholly said at the president’s lunch that when we first entered the competition back in 1998, the committee and people around the comp at the time said it was our ambition to get to the premier sections and his response was, ‘I think you’re dreaming’,” Harrington said. “Certainly, it was a slow start, but under Kirk we’ve gone from D2 up to B grade in something like five years. “We’ve certainly fulfilled the dream that we set out to, and that was to go as high as we possibly can.” The move to the WRFL was made primarily to aid player retention. The Tigers got sick of seeing the young players they developed being poached by cashed-up neighbours. They will also relish the chance to renew some old rivalries that have been confined to junior ranks in recent seasons. “We’ve got some great rivalries with other clubs in the western region league,” Harrington said. “The main ones are Hoppers Crossing, Altona and Spotswood … we look forward to renewing those rivalries at a senior level at some stage. “I believe we’ll be good for the competition and I believe the competition will be good for us.” \ LANCE JENKINSON

The West Wing LOSS MERELY A STUMBLE AS WERRIBEE SHAPES FOR TITLE BID FINALS
Werribee may not have got the four points against the Magpies in the VFL on Saturday, but for Tiger fans there is plenty to be confident about heading into their third consecutive finals series. The Tigers secured a finals berth a week earlier with a convincing win against Northern Blues, so only a gigantic loss to
Collingwood could have dropped Werribee from fifth spot. “We probably knew where we were going to finish unless we got absolutely blown out of the water,” said coach Scott West after the loss to the Pies. Werribee will need to win three finals if it is to make a grand final – something it hasn’t done since 2005. The past two seasons have brought heartbreaking preliminary final
losses. But there is much to be optimistic about. The Tigers have arguably the most versatile forward set-up in the league, with four players having kicked 20 or more goals in the regular season. Add to that a strong midfield and a resolute defence – the Tigers have conceded more than 100 points only once since May – and Werribee must be counted among the contenders. \ DP
Finals footy is why we are all involved in the game. The excitement and energy levels rise at this time of the year for everyone involved at the club. Robbie Castello is our club captain, an experienced finals campaigner and a vital cog in our hopes for the 2013 finals series. SW: Does this finals series feel any different? RC: I guess any final series is special to be part of, and you never want to take any for granted. We have a strong squad on paper and we are looking forward to the challenge and playing four quarter consistent football throughout the series, which can hopefully lead us to a successful campaign. SW: What is the mindset leading into the finals? RC: The season is over now, we finished fifth. Now everyone in the top eight have given themselves a chance to win the premiership. We missed the double chance so we just have to keep winning. We believe we have the team to have a real go at it. When this time of year comes around, those sore spots you had during the year seem to disappear. Everyone at training will have that extra spring in their step. It is the best time of the year for a footballer. It’s been a long journey, after a long pre season which started the first week of November. SW: What about those players who haven’t been to finals before? RC: We have some young blokes in our Development squad who have played finals at that level but not at senior level and are a massive chance to play for us in the coming weeks and they bring excitement and enthusiasm to the group and you have the older blokes with AFL experience, it is an interesting group.

gutsy tigers fall to pies VFL
An eight-goal final term wasn’t enough for Werribee to overcome Collingwood in the final round of the Victorian Football League home-and-away season on Saturday. The Tigers went into the game in good touch, having beaten Port Melbourne and Northern Blues comfortably in the fortnight prior. But after a low-scoring first half, the Magpies came out and delighted the home crowd at Victoria Park with eight third-quarter goals. Ben Warren got the first goal of the quarter and Ben McKinley and Robbie Castello kept the Tigers in touch, but Collingwood was simply too good and took a 38-point lead into the last break. But teams have found it tough to keep Werribee down this season, and this game was no different.
Jarred Moore got the first of eight Tiger The result means Werribee is scheduled goals in the last term from a snap. And when to play Essendon in the first elimination Ben Warren, Ben Brown and Kieran Harper final at North Port Oval this Sunday, followed, the Pies’ lead had shrunk to 14 though as the Weekly went to print it was points.

SW: I expect a big Castello contingent will be at North Port Oval on Sunday? RC: Absolutely they love their footy, and I guess like all Werribee followers they will be supporting as hard as they can to try and help us get over the line. SW: How are you feeling physically? RC: I have had a bit of a different role this year and the body has held up really well. I am looking forward to getting into it on Sunday. SW: Me too.
