The summer fire threat is far from over, according to Werribee CFA. Captain Michael Wells warns that with dry grass surrounding residential areas, the potential for devastating losses remains high. While firefighters have been busy battling a 60-hectare blaze at Avalon and major fires in Riddells Creek and Kilmore, junior members like Liam and Dylan Brittian have been practising for this weekend's state championships. ■ STORY BY SUE HEWITT, PAGE 7

The federal and state governments are being urged to provide funding for a metro rail tunnel to improve public transport services and boost employment in the wake of Toyota’s decision to close its Altona factory in 2017. Victorian Council of Social Service (VCOSS) chief executive Emma King said that by investing in services and infrastructure, governments could ensure that communities hit by job losses weathered the current crisis and began to build a strong economic future. “The Victorian government should

delays a continuing curse for sardine commuters werribee

Werribee passengers continue to travel on packed peak-hour trains, with no increase in the number of peak services on the line since October 2010. Latest passenger load survey results from Public Transport Victoria reveal that five of Melbourne’s train lines are overcrowded during the morning and evening peaks. The surveys, conducted on 12 weekdays in October, found that nine of the Werribee line’s 41 peak-period trains were overcrowded. During the morning peak, 20 per cent of passengers travelled on overcrowded trains, while 23.8 per cent of commuters used packed evening trains. Other overcrowded lines were Dandenong, Craigieburn, Sandringham and Frankston. University student and Wyndham Transport Advisory Committee member Cameron Nash said overcrowding on the Werribee line caused delays, meaning he regularly missed his connecting train. “It can be a very frustrating ride, with the train stopping for lengthy periods at Laverton,” he said. ‘‘Generally, the Werribee train will also stop for lengthy periods before Flinders Street, causing me to miss my connection to uni.”

MY TOWN

T

hrough a combination of factors, I found myself waitressing at a wedding on Valentine’s Day. It was the first time I’ve carried a tray since I was a teenager and got my first job at the local Chinese restaurant in my home town of Mildura. Back then I was excited to finally be earning a bit of pocket money and had bought a black shirt to wear, as instructed by the restaurant owner. It was only worn the once. After accidently smashing a couple of plates in the kitchen while trying to avoid the swinging service door, I was unceremoniously given the sack and sent home. Given this provenance, I was understandably anxious about helping out an event manager friend who was woefully short staffed. However, walking into the event, all nerves disappeared as I was immediately given a job and continued to work solidly for the next seven hours. Everyone was polite and respectful to me and the other staff. But chatting to the other girls afterwards, it was clear that wasn’t always the case. It made me appreciate just how hard people in hospitality work. I’ll be making sure that I’m extra polite when eating out in future. And just for the record, all plates survived intact. \ EMMA SUTCLIFFE Emma Sutcliffe is a Little River-based freelance writer. You can find her on Facebook at ‘‘Little River Emma’’.

GOT A STORY FOR US? Mr Nash said overcrowding on the line was getting worse. A spokesman for PTV said the more spacious X’Trapolis trains would be able to run on the Werribee line once infrastructure was upgraded as part of the $100 million Bayside rail improvement project. This work

is not expected to be finished until late 2015. The spokesman said the addition of two new stations, at Tarneit and Wyndham Vale in 2016, as part of the Regional Rail Link, would disperse commuters across two lines, easing overcrowding on Werribee services. \ LL

college students fly festival flags Students from The Grange College will be front and centre when the annual Weerama Festival parade makes its way along Watton Street on March 2. The college has been chosen to lead this year’s parade, with 14 students asked to carry flags spelling out “Weerama”. Following them will be community groups and schools. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the festival. The three-day event starts on Friday, February 28, with buskers performing at Station Place from 4pm. On March 1, there will be a children’s “fun-fest” at Chirnside Park, a Bon Jovi and Pink show and other activities in Watton Street, and fireworks at Wyndham Park. The festival finishes on March 2 with the street parade at 11am and a youth talent competition. Festival director Warrick Lynch said he was confident the festival would be a fun-filled event, despite Wyndham council’s decision to cut funding from $50,985 last year to $34,650 this year, citing ‘‘tight economic times’’. \ LL » weerama.org.au

wyndham falls behind on child immunisation HEALTH

New figures reveal Wyndham has the lowest immunisation rate in the western suburbs, with 8 per cent of children not vaccinated by the time they start school. Melton had the highest proportion of fully immunised five-year-olds: 94.34 per cent. A state government report card released last week showed 93 per cent of Victorian children were immunised before starting school this year. It wants to increase the figure to 95 per cent by 2015. Health Minister David Davis said

While many people in their mid-60s choose to put their feet up, Carole and Ray Smith are often run off their feet as “parents” of five teenagers. The couple’s day starts at 5.45am and ends at 9.30pm, revolving around their grandchildren, whom they have taken into their Point Cook home. “They are our grandchildren, but they’re also our children,” Mrs Smith said. “We wouldn’t have it any other way.” But it’s financially difficult for the pensioner couple, so they sought help from Kids Under Cover, an organisation that aims to prevent youth homelessness by providing studios for families experiencing overcrowding. It also provides scholarships and mentoring. The support helps this family – the grandparents and two sets of cousins – stay together in their three-bedroom home. The couple were living in country Victoria about 13 years ago when two of their grandchildren needed care because of family circumstances. They took in baby Daniel, now 13, and his sister Tegan, now 15. “It was nappies, waking up and getting

the kids to babysitters at 6am because I was working as a hospital domestic and Ray was working in the abattoir,” Mrs Smith said. Tragedy struck again a few years later when their other three grandchildren – Kayla, 16, Wade, 15, and Elissa, 13 – lost their mother to cancer. The Smiths took them in and moved back to Melbourne, but as the grandchildren got older, they outgrew their modest house. Kids Under Cover has provided a relocatable one-bedroom studio with bathroom for Kayla, who is in year 12. “In this year, I need space away from others to study. The studio’s great,” Kayla said. “The others, especially grandpa, want this room and jokingly ask when I am moving out.” Kids Under Cover spokesman Martin Murley said 11 studios had been provided to families in Wyndham – often to grandparents or aunts and uncles caring for relatives. “It’s a preventative approach where providing extra accommodation keeps families together, minimising the risk of youth homelessness,’’ he said. \ SH

Werribee River Association has welcomed a unique agreement to help wetland birds at a bluestone quarry. According to Werribee riverkeeper John Forrester, Holcim Quarries and BirdLife Australia have signed a three-year national agreement to work together to improve awareness of threats to wetland birds. “Werribee has been chosen as a trial project under the agreement for all Holcim sites across Australia and ... urban wetland birds will be the focus,” Mr Forrester said. He said Werribee was an important site because it was close to suburbia where birdlife could be easily identified and data could be added to BirdLife Australia’s knowledge about newly created wetlands and the habitat. Holcim quarry staff will this year take part in bird identification workshops, visit sites of importance and assist in a planting day along Cheetham Creek in Point Cook. The community will also have the chance to be involved. \ SH

JUST ME \ VIA WEB TOYOTA TO EXIT AUSTRALIA (Weekly, February 12) Typical from the ALP, as we can see from Kim Carr’s disgraceful comments. Let’s pretend that Labor wasn’t in power when Ford made the decision to cease production in Australia. Let’s pretend that a three-month old Coalition government was to blame for Holden’s decision to leave the country, not the previous six-year Labor administration. Large corporations like Holden and Toyota make decisions on their future years in advance – not all of a sudden as Kim Carr would have us believe. The automotive manufacturers in Australia made their decision to cease manufacturing many years ago.

They plan for many years in the future and would never suddenly make the choice to pull up stumps after a moment’s thought. The blame for the loss of tens of thousands of automotive jobs lies squarely with the ALP. Its policies and trade union mates’ behaviour is the reason for the loss of this important sector. TONY A \ VIA WEB WYNDHAM ENERGY BILLS (Weekly, February 12) Energy and other infrastructure lasts about 50 years. It not only must be replaced and maintained at a rate of 2 per cent a year, but extended at almost 2 per cent a year due to population growth. It’s not the actual costs of power but the infrastructure that is prohibitively expensive. Wyndham is at the coalface of population growth, being a high-growth corridor. In the past, immigration built our nation and created economies

of scale and high living standards. Now these golden days of profitable nation-building are over. But governments remain in their ivory towers, immune from grassroots pressures and locked in a retro-growth stage. The growth being forced on to us is detrimental and causing hardships, especially to the most vulnerable, including many migrants. Our present economic model of perpetual growth needs a rethink in line with the contemporary conditions. MARY G \ VIA WEB

Western Bulldogs player Mitch Wallis (pictured) came face to face with Werribee Open Range Zoo’s resident Bulldogs supporter – an Eastern barred bandicoot named Heywood Gia – during a visit last week. Wallis and teammate Adam Cooney visited the zoo as part of the club’s annual Bulldog Blitz to encourage supporters to “love their locals”. Zoo spokeswoman Kimberley Polkinghorne said the bandicoots used to live in the grasslands of western Victoria, but now existed only in zoos and predator-proof release sites. The Western Bulldogs are encouraging people to help the zoo’s captive breeding program by collecting five-cent coins for a “Common Cents Challenge”. \ LL » zoo.org.au

MY WYNDHAM \ BEV GETS A KICK OUT OF HELPING OUT, WRITES REBECCA MILLER

W

yndham Vale resident Bev Edwards is known for her community commitment. A local of 38 years, she loves volunteering at the Victoria State Rose Garden in Werribee Park. ‘‘I always come home feeling better,” she says.

How do you spend your downtime? My husband and I like walking around Werribee South, particularly along the foreshore. We also like walking along the paths and parkland in Wyndham Green estate. What’s your favourite place to get coffee and a bite to eat? We like to pop into Wyndham Cache for a coffee or lunch. They also sell lovely produce and we get fresh eggs there.

(michael copp)

What’s your connection to the community? I volunteer at the rose garden with my husband, Neil. We’ve been volunteering there since 2000. We work in the garden on Wednesdays and attend to the roses – there are 5500 of them. Once a month, we hold a barbecue in the garden and I make my own hamburgers, which everyone calls ‘‘Bev’s burgers’’. I also volunteer on the Old “I COULD Geelong Road site where the B24 Liberator, a World SEE THE War II plane, has been restored. I work in the shop YOU YANGS” there and sell bits and pieces related to the plane. I’m happy to put my hand up for anything ... I take pleasure in helping people.

What would you like to change in your neighbourhood? I’d like to see more parking in Werribee’s CBD. We’re always driving around and around trying to find a parking spot. Werribee River should be taken care of, as it’s a nice spot. People are working on it but it’s an asset to the area and should be continually maintained.

What do you love about your neighbourhood? Our estate is in a quiet area with a lot of parkland and good neighbours. We have buses and a train station is coming soon.

slow council response to dog attack ‘pathetic’

Jayla Tran is only seven but has already had a hit with a world-class tennis ace, meeting former Australian star Alicia Molik at Sanctuary Lakes Tennis Club last Monday. Jayla was named the MLC Tennis Hot Shot of the Year. As a reward, she and four friends enjoyed a lesson with the Australian Fed Cup captain. The Point Cook P-9 College pupil was recognised for her outstanding participation, enthusiasm and dedication to the Tennis Australia Hot Shots program. “I loved having a hit with Alicia,” Jayla said. “She’s amazing and she gave me some great tips to help improve my game.” Club manager Dan Tipples said many youngsters had joined the junior tennis program recently. \ SH

However, a menacing dog at large was seized in this vicinity by council officers in October last year. This dog was subsequently euthanased.” \ SUE HEWITT

(SUPPLIED)

Wyndham council has confirmed that “menacing dogs” were seized near the house where a savage dog recently attacked a pet, causing it serious injury. Council chief executive Kerry Thompson said the animals were seized before the horrific January 30 attack that left a pet boxer with serious chest injuries. But she did not say whether the animals were from the same property as the dog responsible for the attack. Despite claims by Werribee pet owner Emma Leunig that the council failed to act immediately, Ms Thompson said staff acted upon the complaint within “one working day”. Ms Leunig had claimed that council staff told her no one was able to respond to her complaint because of staff shortages. But, in a statement provided 10 days after the Weekly asked for a response, Ms Thompson said: “Wyndham City responded to the dog attack within one business day, immediately after it was reported. An investigation is currently under way and Ms Leunig is being kept informed of its progress.” Ms Leunig said she feared for children in the area and believed a dog at the address

12 WYNDHAM WEEKLY \ FEBRUARY 19, 2014


A

re you here about what happened last night?” Julie asks from behind the glass. It’s a balmy December evening in St Albans and the Weekly has come looking for the railway station’s last line of defence: two Protective Services Officers going by the names of Kevin and Kuldeep. The duo are among 586 PSOs working across 82 stations. Julie spent much of 2013 sitting behind the protective glass of Metro’s St Albans ticket booth after moving from North Melbourne, and she’s noticed a calmer environment since PSOs began patrolling among the swarm of commuters who flow through the station between 6pm and the last train each night. Despite an Australia New Zealand Policing Advisory Agency survey released last month that revealed a significant decline in Victorian commuters feeling safe on public transport (24.2 per cent) compared to 2008-09 figures (27.9 per cent), Julie believes there’s been a positive change. “A few people say to me they feel safer [at St Albans station]. There’s been quite a few issues.” Like last night’s armed robbery when two PSOs helped police chase down a pair of would-be thieves at a supermarket across the street. While the PSOs’ lines of enforcement outside the station are intentionally vague, assisting police is one of the tasks required alongside their chief concern: creating an atmosphere of safety. In that sense it’s been mission accomplished, although Julie would like to see the state government go a step further and staff PSOs from “the first train to the last”. She’s not naive enough to think local crime has been

HAPPY IN THE SERVICE Protective services officers are on track to achieving commuter safety, writes BEN CAMERON curbed, though. It’s just moved to another location, or to an earlier time slot. “Drug and alcohol-affected people don’t have a time frame,” she says. “It just means the crime happens earlier in the day.” A wave of commuters bustle through the station’s sliding doors, and among them are the PSOs the Weekly is seeking. “Checking tickets isn’t our primary concern, safety is,” Kuldeep says when asked to define his new role overseeing the transportation of this community: refugees, the unemployed, workers, those on low incomes, the high, the low and the just plain drunk and restless. “The crime has moved away from the station, and onto the trains ... to other areas and to other times,” adds Kevin, who at age 41 left a much safer desk job in computer science in January to patrol both here and at Watergardens station. His girlfriend was not impressed with his career change. In November, a Fairfax Media report revealed assaults and thefts at railway stations hit a five-year high in the first year PSOs were deployed. “She was scared at the time,” says Kevin. “She was always thinking the worst-case scenario, that I might get stabbed, bashed or shot even. But it’s been alright, she’s sort of adjusting. It’s mostly assaults and petty crime [you deal with]. I enjoy the direct contact I have with people. You can see the impact you have on the community.” Kuldeep is in no doubt he made the right move giving up his job as a door-to-door salesman with Telstra. “I love my job, mate,” he says sincerely. “Ninety per cent of people don’t have a problem with us; 10

per cent do.” From escorting the overindulged into ambulances to busting serial fare evaders with outstanding warrants, the work is niche but rarely boring. PSOs have also reported incidents where they had to talk people around from attempting suicide. Praise for their work has been rare, yet some has come from unlikely sources. A few months ago, Kevin says he was approached by a career criminal. “This guy was a crook with a long history of crime, and he comes up to me and says, ‘I don’t like you guys, I don’t need you, but I now realise my kids need you’.” Both PSOs say they have built a rapport with their travelling community. As we watch a train disappear into the distance, a female commuter on her way home from the gym comes over for a 10-minute chat. She’s probably not one of the 51.2 per cent who said in the survey they felt safer walking home at night than on public transport. Asked about his method of charming more difficult members of the public, Kevin says: “I use the attitude test. I usually give them a warning if they give me no lip. If people admit their mistake we let them off. “There was one kid who jumped onto the tracks to cross to the other side, just before a train came. I said, ‘What did you do that for?’ And he said he had to go to the toilet.” Kevin smiles, but admits it’s not so easy with the drunks. “We don’t let the drunks off. We can hold up the train if we have to. We had to drag a guy off the train once because he was drunk.” Armed with all the tools of the standard police officer – handgun, baton and capsicum spray – these two take

on a handful of incidents for each 10-hour shift and, on average, make one arrest a week. “There was one guy, a regular on the line, who was assaulting young girls,” Kevin says. “He was asking girls to be in photos with him, you know, selfies, but he was grabbing them on the breasts. He was in his 70s.” Kevin says PSOs have essentially wiped out response times to train station crime. “We can get involved in an incident straightaway,” he says. “And people have somebody to tell straightaway ... before, when the police arrived they were picking up the pieces.” He’s not surprised there’s been a spike in assaults (716 up from 645) and thefts (472 up from 352) at stations over the past year. “A lot more is being reported and recorded.” However, robberies at stations have dropped from 184 to 126. Suddenly, a group of young men sprawled on the ground on the opposite side of the tracks catches Kuldeep’s attention. One in particular, is slumped against the fence with a hat pulled down over his face. “We better check this one out,” he says to his offsider. As we cross the tracks, the Weekly points out four men drinking under some trees across the road. One sits in his wheelchair with beer in hand. “Oh, yeah, there’s going to be heaps [of drunks tonight] ...” Kevin says. It turns out the young man is only resting in the heat after a hard day’s shopping, and what looked like a slab of beer at his feet was only a case of tinned vegetables. It sums up a quiet shift so far. “Ninety-nine per cent of the time there’s not much that happens ... and for the other time that’s when people need ya. But I’d like to see PSOs [working at stations] all the time; it has to happen eventually,” Kevin says. \ bcameron@mmpgroup.com.au FEBRUARY 19, 2014 \ WYNDHAM WEEKLY 13

Next month’s Centenary of Military Aviation Air Show at Point Cook will be a contrast between old and new, according to the man in charge of the Royal Australian Air Force’s special events. Air Commodore Philip Byrne says the March 1-2 celebration will be a “one-in-100-year event”, adding there has never been an Australian event featuring so much military history. “This is the only show to go to. I think people will be blown away,” he said. “There have been 200 aircraft used by the Royal Australian Air Force in 100 years and 60 of them will be at the show.” Air Commodore Byrne said it was fitting that the event, which had been several years in the making, was being held at the birth place of the Royal Australian Air Force. The celebration marks 100 years since the first military flight in Australia, when Lieutenant Eric Harrison took to the skies above Point Cook in a Bristol Boxkite. Air Commodore Byrne said while the role of the Point Cook RAAF base had changed since 1914, it remained at the heart of the air force. “100 years ago it was perfect because you

WERRIBEE \ 2 VILLA WALK Change your outlook forever with this picturesque Werribee residence that’s a haven of peace, comfort and easy living. At the end of a quiet court within the tightly held River Bend estate, the 1980s brick-veneer gem is on a 1011-square-metre garden allotment. Enhanced inside and out by the vendors over the past 12 years, the AV Jennings residence of about 26 squares has been designed to capture garden views from every window. Instantly appealing with its mix of formal and informal living spaces, the house’s sensible

floor plan and warm decor – reflected in its wooden-framed windows, Tasmanian oak floorboards and cedar venetians – allows for the best of indoor/outdoor living for all the family. Creating an excellent first impression, the lounge room is highlighted by its vast brick fireplace with timber mantel and steel backing (in the hearth), while the adjacent dining zone is complemented by the relaxed environs of the rear family room and the all-weather outdoor entertainment area with brick-paved floor, timber-lined ceiling and laserlite roof. Tropical gardens are sustained by the easy-care recycled water system.

Profile \ Rally’s cars are cheap, but their cause is priceless, WRITES SUE HEWITT

I

t might be shameful to own a “shitbox” in some suburbs, but three teams from Wyndham are celebrating the knockabout cars on a road trip to raise money for the Cancer Council. The uniquely Australian term has stumped some competitors originally from overseas, like Irishman Brian Rodgers from Point Cook, but all have embraced the Shitbox Rally, the nation’s largest private Cancer Council fund-raiser. It’s a seven-day, 4000-kilometre outback road trip from Perth to Darwin in cars worth less than $1000. Their drivers and teams are aiming to raise $1.4 million in sponsorship. Rodgers has teamed up with mate Joe Pantalleresco. “Our car’s a 1993 Ford Fairlane worth a few hundred dollars, needing a roadworthy and work. We called the team ‘Push to Start’, because that’s what we might have to do.” The pair also raise funds for cancer organisations through the Point Cook Motorcycle Club. They’ve both been touched by cancer in their families. “We’re not training as such, we’re going to turn up and hope everything is OK,” Rodgers says. “Even if the car dies we will still be in the Australian outback, loving it and raising money.’’ Another Point Cook team knows about failure. A few years ago, Tim Watson’s pirate-themed entry “blew up” three hours into the challenge and the team flew home. This year, Watson and mate Ben Huice from Morwell have chosen a fighter jet theme and hope to last the distance. The rally starts in Perth on March 31, stopping by Meekatharra, Marble Bar and Broome before heading into the Kimberley and the top end. First-time challengers Jacques Pretorius and Armandt

BRIAN RODGERS AND JOE PANTALLEReSCO

Lourens, of Point Cook, are heading out in a 1991 Toyota Camry because they believe in the cause. The rally has raised more than $3 million for the Cancer Council since it was first held in 2010, according to race spokesman James Freeman. “Shitbox Rally is a different way of bringing

together the community to raise awareness and support Cancer Council Australia in an adventurous and memorable way.” \ shewitt@mmpgroup.com.au » shitboxrally.com.au

o-curricular activities, such as school-related and community-based programs, including sport, music or volunteering in the school community, improve children’s social skills and help them identify their strengths and gain confidence. Through these activities, children also have the opportunity to develop social knowledge and learn skills that are not always a focus in formal education. “These activities can help deepen relationships with the school in a way that doesn’t always happen in the more formal school setting,” says Helen McGrath, professor at School of Education, Deakin University. “Sometimes these activities are cross-age, so it may be for grades 3 and 4 or years 8 and 9 – like the school orchestra, for example “Children benefit socially from having cross-age contacts. Schools can also provide students with opportunities to showcase their strengths, for example, with a school concert or musical. It also gives you a stronger sense of connectedness with the school in a more relaxed environment.” She adds that ongoing co-curricular activities help kids overcome social fears as well as allow them to grow their leadership

Success stories: Jennifer Morrison, Charmaine De Lima, Domenic Bufalino, Hannah Murphy and Olivia Meisel; college dux Paris Landolina and principal Rory Kennedy. (supplied) Take note: Joining a school orchestra can improve social skills. (thinkstock) skills. In later years, these activities could also be looked upon favourably on the student’s CV. McGrath adds that studies have shown some evidence that the behaviour of children undertaking these activities improves at school and at home. “There is also a slight link between academic improvement and co-curricular involvement, but it depends on what that participation is. However, sport activities are better for general well-being and have great health benefits.” \

he vision of MacKillop College is grounded in Gospel values and the tradition of St Mary of the Cross, says principal Rory Kennedy. “We strive to encourage individuals to reach their full potential as life-long learners by providing an innovative, challenging and collaborative learning and teaching environment in a rapidly evolving society. “MacKillop College has gone from strength to strength in the academic arena with recent achievements including last year’s dux, Paris Landolina, attaining entry into science/law at Monash University,” adds Mr Kennedy. Other success stories include the

achievements of Charmaine De Lima, Olivia Meisel and Hannah Murphy in Design Technology Fibre and Media at Top Designs – VCE Season of Excellence 2014. Their folio work will be on display at a Melbourne Museum exhibition from March to June. Their DCT teacher Jennifer Morrison and media teacher Dominic Bufalino are also to be congratulated.

emale and male students interested in becoming an army cadet have that opportunity, among others, at Werribee Secondary College. The college stands out as one of only three Victorian government schools with a cadet unit. “The establishment of the cadet unit in the school has added a wonderful opportunity for our students to develop their leadership skills and personal development,” principal Steve Butyn says. “Cadets also gain a wide range of skills outside the general school curriculum, including bush and field craft, navigation, radio communications, marksmanship, drill

and ceremonial activities and historical and cultural awareness.” Reaching capacity last year with 60 cadets, and with a strong commitment to community involvement, the unit is a vital component of the ANZAC Day march, dawn service and Remembrance Day commemoration in Werribee. In the past, students have won Australian Defence Force Academy scholarships and this success continued in 2013. \

aving given rival Mercedes-Benz a 100-year head start in the luxury car business, Lexus leapt out of the starting blocks like, well, a tortoise in 1989. Lexus founder Eiji Toyoda knew from his background as president of Toyota that brand reputation is earned, not bought. He put his fledgling prestige car division on the sure and steady path to success, one flawless paint job at a time. Twenty-five years on, Lexus is still a work in progress, gradually filling its model line-up from the original one – the LS limousine – to nine passenger car model lines today (Mercedes has double that and counting). It is also finding its own sense of style and character, with the latest generation of models the most distinctive yet. Lexus made it hard for itself by eschewing “dirty” diesel engines and turbos, instead embracing petrol-electric hybrids and normally aspirated petrol engines. Don’t hold your breath for a Lexus diesel any time soon and the first turbo is still in the pipeline, but at least you can now buy a fuel-efficient hybrid version of Lexus’ top-selling model, the mid-sized IS, in the new third generation. The IS 300h, as the hybrid variant of Lexus’ BMW 3 Series competitor is called, sits in the middle of the IS range, between the 2.5-litre V6 IS 250 and flagship 3.5-litre V6 IS 350. The 300h uses a combination of 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor, driving the rear wheels via a fancy continuously variable transmission. Like other hybrids in the Toyota/Lexus armoury, the IS 300h recoups electricity generated under braking and stores it in a battery – in this case under the back of the

car – and draws on it under acceleration to cut fuel consumption. Combined, these motors deliver 164 kilowatts of power and 221 newton metres of torque. The good part about electric motors is that they generate maximum torque from rest, helping the IS 300h to accelerate off the mark with more gusto than might be expected. Still, it is no show pony, achieving the 0-100km/h sprint in a fairly sedate 8.4 seconds. That’s a second slower than the 320d. Of course hybrid technology is all about fuel savings, and Lexus claims its contender can achieve 4.9 litres per 100 kilometres on the official combined fuel consumption test. As per our usual experience, this does not translate to the real world but something in the high 5.0s is possible. Like some other Lexus/Toyota hybrids, the IS 300h can provide a certain amount of electric-only driving, but only at under 40km/h for a short distance. The price premium for the privilege of electric assistance is $3000 over the petrol-only IS 250, but the 300h is more than $6000 cheaper than the more powerful IS 350, which starts at $65,000 (plus on-road costs). The IS 300h is available in two specifications – Luxury and F Sport – with the latter adding touches such as a unique front grille treatment, an extra Sport+ driving mode with active dampers, and bigger 18-inch alloy wheels with low-profile tyres. Our major complaint with the 300h would be the low-level whine from the electric power train and its CVT transmission, which is exacerbated by the otherwise super-quiet cabin experience. But we have plenty of bouquets, too,

starting with the wonderful ergonomics for the driver. The leather-swathed seats are among the best we have experienced. Most car makers stretch the upholstery over the seat, creating a taut fit, but Lexus moulds the foam insert first, meaning a more pliable

surface. Ahh! The driving position is well considered, with superb all-round visibility and everything within easy reach. A big in-dash multifunction screen is operated by a sensitive mouse-like controller on the console that, to our clumsy touch, was difficult to master, especially with the left hand. As always, this Lexus has a superbly appointed cabin, with a high level of equipment compared with its German rivals. Standard gear includes keyless smart entry, heated and ventilated seats, digital radio and, on F Sport variants, an upmarket Mark Levinson audio. An all-new body gains a stretched wheelbase, which in turn has enhanced rear leg room, with Lexus claiming superiority over the Germans in this regard. However, don’t expect limousine dimensions – a rear-drive car involves compromises. The boot is reasonably generous, although at the expense of a full-sized spare wheel. The rear seat splits and folds, however – a rarity in such hybrids. We will finish on two of our favourite aspects of the new IS: its glorious road manners and world-beating fit and finish. For the first time, Lexus has truly matched the Germans in steering and handling, making the IS a joy to drive. Add the wonderful driving position, classy fat steering wheel and supportive seats, and the IS puts Munich, Stuttgart and Ingolstadt on notice. With unmatched quality, backed by a four-year warranty, the IS must be on every mid-sized luxury car buyer’s list. Yep, the tortoise is breathing down their necks. \ rhammerton@theweeklyreview.com.au

Stan and Margaret Woolard, from Newcomb in Geelong, are in their late 70s. They travel Australia in their Mercedes Sprinter motorhome. During 30 years with Victoria Police, Stan avidly read about the outback. So when he retired, he and Margaret decided to see some far-flung places themselves. On their first trip they travelled for 10 months, nicknaming that adventure the “Australia All Over” tour. “We travelled 26,500 kilometres,” he says. “One night I remember stopping for dinner at the now defunct old-style Darwin Hotel. Margaret and I sat outside surrounded by palm trees and had a nice bottle of wine.” In September, the Woolards travelled to Mildura, Hay and Griffith in NSW and then north-east to Queensland. On the way home, they stopped at Burren Junction to enjoy the hot water springs and crossed country Victoria to Geelong. “Travelling in this way has enabled us to see

werribee still undefeated

Bowls A three rinks to one loss has dropped Hoppers Crossing to third on the Bowls Victoria division 3 ladder. Hoppers was beaten 72-66 overall by top side Melton on the road on Saturday and was leapfrogged by local rivals Werribee (3) in the standings. A home final is still a possibility for Hoppers, but it needs to beat Maribyrnong Park on Saturday and hope that Werribee loses to Melton in a blockbuster final round. \

Cricket

Seasoned campaigners Tim O’Brien and Heath Pritchard were the go-to guys for Werribee in a 46-run win against Williamstown in the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association western derby at Chirnside Park on Saturday. O’Brien made 106 not out to set the game up on day one, while Pritchard sealed the deal with 5-38 on the second day to leave the Seagulls pining for an impact player of their own. The Seagulls were littered with promise in a spirited run chase but lacking in a player who could take the bull by the horns. They were bowled out 192, well short of the Tigers’ imposing 9-238. “There’s 106 out of 239 [by O’Brien] and five-for out of 10 wickets [by Pritchard] that need to be taken,” Werribee captain Shaun Dean said. “The two standout performers were the difference for us.” The Seagulls could have done without a slow start. They were 2-7 with both openers back in the pavilion and it put pressure on the middle order. Craig Sheedy (29), Brenton Hodges (28) and Jonty Paulsen (33) breathed life into the chase, but all went out just as it appeared they were about to flick into top gear. A 68-run eighth wicket partnership between Jordan Doyle (41) and Sam Davis (17) provided late hope for the Seagulls, but it

falcons swoop to win season opener Netball

City West Falcons allayed fears of a premiership hangover with a total dismantlement of local rivals VU-Western Lightning in the Victorian Netball League championship season opener at the State

Netball and Hockey Centre on Wednesday night. The Falcons burst to an eight-goal quartertime lead, an advantage they would only increase in a ruthless 52-34 win. Falcons assistant coach Nicole Richardson was impressed by the completeness of the

performance so early in the season. “To come up against VU in the first round ... they’re a really tough opposition, so to be able to put the four quarters in like the girls did was great to see, particularly when you’re talking about round one,” Richardson told the Weekly. \ LJ

LYDIA, YOU’VE DONE US PROUD Winter Olympics

Lydia Lassila, you are our inspiration. You have done the western suburbs proud with your brave performances at the Sochi Olympics. Lassila was the talk of coffee shops across the west on Saturday morning after claiming a bronze medal in the ladies’ aerials. The 32-year-old from Diggers Rest is more than a dual Olympic medallist, she is a ground breaker. The former Footscray City Gymnastics Club member set a goal of becoming the first woman to attempt an in-competition quad-twisting triple somersault. The degree of difficulty was out of this world, but Lassila was not going to die wondering. “I was always going to go into these Olympics with that approach, all or nothing,” she told Channel Ten after the super final. “I’m the first woman to do the full-doublefull-full. I set out to do this trick 15 years ago when I saw my first world cup at Mt Buller in Australia and that was in 1999. “I saw the guys doing these amazing triples and I said one day I’m going to do it. Fifteen years later, I did it, and I’m super happy. “I’ve reached my potential. It would be great to always do more, but that was a maximum effort from me today and I couldn’t have done any better.” Lassila entered the super final with the second best score of the qualifiers. The surprise packet of the final was Belarusian veteran Alla Tsuper, who had the smoothest landing on the back of a back-full-full-full jump and scored 98.01 to claim gold. China’s Li Nina attempted a back double-full double-full, a difficult jump and botched the landing, scoring just 46.02. Four years ago, Lassila won gold at the Vancouver Olympics. She had gold on her mind at the top of the hill in this final leap at Sochi. Under her fluoro yellow glasses she had a steely look, nothing indicating the nerves of a woman about to go where no other had gone before. She ticked all the technical boxes but drifted slightly in the air and it played havoc with her landing. “There’s nothing Lydia could have done more to save that jump,” Olympic gold medallist and TV commentator Alisa Camplin said. 38 WYNDHAM WEEKLY \ FEBRUARY 19, 2014

homegrown bees reject cash flow Soccer

Werribee City will not be seduced into chequebook football, even after landing a plum spot in the top tier of the new National Premier League Victoria (NPL), according to club president Sam Panebianco. The Bees will face Victorian soccer powerhouses Melbourne Knights and South Melbourne after being installed in the top 14 for the inaugural NPL season starting next month. For the past three years, the Bees have focused on youth development, blooding homegrown players and young up-and-comers who took them to promotion in state league 1 last campaign. Panebianco forecasts more of the same during the initial three-year NPL licence run. “We structured ourselves over the last three years to keep on developing youth and we’re going to continue on that path,” he said. “I know some of the bigger clubs are paying big money for players, but we’re sticking to our guns. “As long as in the three years we’ve got the licence we continue to develop and be competitive, we’re not too fussed where we’re going to end up [in the standings].” The Bees’ bid for an NPL licence was backed by the Italian Sports Club of Werribee. The improvement of facilities at Galvin Park, including plans for a grandstand, are supported by the Wyndham City Council. The club has four new grounds that are “state of the art”, according to Panebianco, and its coaches, from the juniors right through to the seniors, are all accredited. With a solid foundation in place after three years of hard work, Panebianco was thrilled to have been accepted into the upper echelon of the NPL for year one. “I’m ecstatic and so is the whole club,” Panebianco said. “We couldn’t have wished for a better result.” Promotion-winning coach Nino Ragusa has been retained as head coach and will double as the club’s technical director. “He’ll be doing both roles, which I think is fantastic ... he’s promoted quite a few of the young kids into the senior squad,” Panebianco said. \ LJ

The judges gave Lassila 72.12 – a guaranteed podium finish. “I’m very happy with my performance,” she said. “It would’ve been great to land that jump, but I was stretching for my life and I just couldn’t get there. Whether Lassila’s medal was silver or

bronze depended on the final competitor, China’s Xu Mengtao. Xu approached her back-lay double-full-full more cautiously and lost momentum and a gold medal in the process. But she did enough to pip Lassila for silver with a score of 83.50. \ LANCE JENKINSON

centrals’ victory joy

Werribee Centrals will get a chance to shape their own destiny in the last round of Victorian Turf Cricket Association north A1. It was “pandemonium” in the Centurion rooms following Saturday’s second-last ball triumph over blossoming rival St Andrews in the grand final re-match at Pennell Reserve. The Centurion players knew how important the victory was as it allowed them to climb out of the relegation zone. They head into a final-round meeting with Sunshine Druids on 63.55 points and knowing a win is likely to ensure survival – barring a major points grab in the form of outrights from St Francis de Sales (63.39), St Albans (57.43) or Youlden Parkville (56.25). “There was a big crowd there and it was tense – that’s why it was pretty euphoric,” Centurions secretary Chris Duffin said. The Centurions were slightly downcast after making 8-128 on a heat-reduced opening day. But their tailenders rose to the challenge. Ashley Dorricott (59no) and Justin Davies (28) put on 77 for the ninth wicket to lift the Centurions to 9-214 from their 60 overs. The St Andrews innings had supporters of both sides on the edge of their seats. The Centurions had the upper hand early

Werribee is desperate to regain some of its lost spark with one game to go before Bowls Victoria division 1 finals begin. The Bees have been up and down like a rollercoaster in recent weeks, with that form costing them whatever chance they had of hosting rights in the semi-finals. In Saturday’s 73-68 penultimate round loss to Preston-Reservoir, the Bees looked far removed from the side that had the look of a promotion outfit two months ago. “It’s one of the most disappointing games I’ve played in,” Bees skip Snowy Barker said. “Whether it’s blokes just not playing well enough or thinking they’re better than what they are, I’m not sure. “I’m gutted that we’ve lost our chance of a home final – it’s very disappointing.” The competition in this division is tight, with first and ninth separated by just five wins. That was the case on Saturday when Preston-Reservoir twice caught Werribee in a lull, first to establish a lead and then to pull away for a five-shot upset. “Our blokes were not switched on or committed,” Barker said. “They thought it was going to happen.”

when the Saints slumped to 2-40. But the Saints found their groove through Anthony Hibbert (71) and captain Jake Buttigieg (39) to advance to 2-114. With eight wickets to get, the Centurions star-studded bowling attack went to work. Spinner Dean Giarrusso took 2-37 off 11.5, including the game-clinching wicket of Mark Dorricott on the second-last ball of the day to have the Saints all out for 171. It was a brave move for captain Aaron Edrich to throw Giarrusso the ball for the last over, but it paid off big time. \ LANCE JENKINSON

The Bees will host second-placed Bundoora RSL in a final-round blockbuster on Saturday. “We could end up playing them again the following week in the finals,” Barker said. “I don’t think we’ll be changing anything at the moment. We’ve just got to ask for a lift from everyone. “I’ll see if I can get a spark out of them next week.” \ LJ
