Bishop, SAS developer at odds over security
Reports by RHIANNON SHINE
and LINDA CALLAGHAN
Julie Bishop appears to be in
conflict with her government’s
defence property development
arm over its plans to park
civilian housing next to SAS
family homes at Swanbourne.
“The more high-profile our
SAS is as a unit, the more renowned the SAS becomes, the

more focus must be on security,”
she told the POST this week.
Ms Bishop said she saw problems with Defence Housing
Australia’s plans to redevelop
Seaward Village and mix defence and civilian housing.
But the developer, Defence
Housing Australia, said no security risks had been uncovered
that would stop the development.
“The families still need to be

reassured – so the consultation
process is ongoing,” Ms Bishop
said.
“We won’t rush this, we’ll get
it right.
“In the context of how much
money is involved, in the context
of the entire defence budget,
we’ve got to get it right.”
Ms Bishop said she had recently met SAS families in the
village.
“We certainly don’t want to do

anything that the SAS families
are against,” she said.
“The Prime Minister’s view
is that the SAS is a significant
national asset and he would
want to make sure that their
families feel safe, secure and
happy with any redevelopment.
“I’ve seen the plans and the
experts have indicated why they
believe this won’t be an issue.”
Army families have expressed
concerns that the new residents

and their visitors would bring
strangers to the precinct and
make any terrorist intrusion
harder to detect.
They point to recent terrorist
plots against east coast military
bases.
Swanbourne civilian residents
opposed to the mixed-housing
plan were given an opposite message by DHA, which operates as

Cops rein in
protesters
A

rebellion against the Perth Freight Link has led to two
public forums a week apart in the western suburbs, while
this eight-legged beach protest in the heart of Premier Colin
Barnett’s electorate soon ran into trouble.
Mr Barnett surprised a forum in North Fremantle on Tuesday
when he said that truckies would probably be forced to drive
on the Roe Highway freight link to the Fremantle port.

Two horses painted with slogans brought plenty of attention when they were paraded near the Indiana, at Cottesloe
beach on Saturday morning.
But as they grazed on the lush grass next to the footpath, a
Cottesloe ranger appeared and told protesters that no horses
were permitted. When the horses were moved to the road,
a police patrol stopped and again waved the rule book at

Hastie’s my pick,
Julie Bishop says
By RHIANNON SHINE
Foreign Minister Julie
Bishop has revealed the extent
of the major part she played
in Shenton Park resident
Andrew Hastie’s selection as
the Liberal candidate for the
seat of Canning.
Asked whether the former
Special Air Services soldier
was a captain’s pick, Ms Bishop
said: “How about a vice-captain’s
pick?”
Ms Bishop is deputy federal
Liberal leader.
She said she had first met

Here’s

Andrew Hastie

Mr Hastie in 2009 – while in
opposition – when she sat at a
table with him during a meal in
Afghanistan.
Next month’s Canning byelection was triggered by the
sudden death of Liberal MP
Don Randall.

Ms Bishop said Mr Hastie was
a member of the Liberal Party
Curtin division, of which she is
the federal MP.
“We had to pre-select someone
in a very short time period [and] it
had to be a current member of the
Liberal Party,” Ms Bishop said.
“So the pool of people eligible
for pre-selection was narrowed
down to the current membership
of the Liberal Party – and [Mr
Hastie] was the standout.”
She said she had strongly encouraged Mr Hastie to put himself forward for pre-selection as
a member from outside Canning.

bridles and saddles, they were not classified as vehicles.
With nowhere to go and no helicopter or hot-air balloon

south to their horse float and back to their home paddock.

We feel just like mushrooms
in Ocean Gardens Village
We were at Cambridge
council’s community and
resources committee meeting
on Monday, August 17.
We were astounded at the
way councillor Sonia Grinceri
lectured Ocean Gardens
Village residents in the public gallery, in a demeaning
manner, in our opinion.
We may be elderly, but we
are not stupid.
She totally missed the point
of our submission.
We fully accept and understand that some village
expansion is necessary.
We know we have to have
more apartments, but we
don’t want a four-storey,
11-apartment block in the
middle of the village.
This would have an impact
on the lifestyle of all the residents who use the communal
rooms, including the deck,
coffee room and dining room.
According to the plans, it
will be as close as 3m from
the dining room and 5m from
the deck.
It would also exacerbate
existing parking problems
in the centre of the village.
Ms Grinceri also said we
had free wifi connections to
our units – we don’t.

We have suggested to the
village board that high-rise
apartment blocks could be
placed in other parts of the
village.
These could comprise two
lower floors of parking and
high-standard accommodation, with ocean views, above.
We feel we have been
shabbily treated by the
board, with secrecy and a
relentless disregard for all
residents and their elected
representatives.
We hoped the council
would revisit the constitutional changes it passed
that allowed this situation
to develop.
Councillors gave the board
total control over who are
its members, destroying any
pretence of consultative,
transparent democratic
representation, in our view.
Councillors should ask
themselves if the power
they gave the board is being
used for the benefit of Ocean
Gardens.
We are like mushrooms –
we are kept in the dark and
fed manure!

Since June, when my husband and I wrote
to the POST about the dangers when motorists exit from lanes and driveways across
footpaths, we have had a few near misses.
But nothing compared with our experience at about 5.30pm on Friday, August 21,
at the Broome Street end of Fig Tree Lane,
Cottesloe.
One more step and we would have been
taken out by a silver/grey wagon doing around
30kmh, driven by a man with a teenage boy
passenger.
The driver apologised with: “Sorry, I was
busy talking!”
After an exchange of words, he very cynically said: “I have apologised, what else do
you want me to do?”
We suggest he reads the rules about speed
limits applying to exiting laneways.
He is in charge of a killing machine.
He should concentrate, show consideration and courtesy to other people, and set
a good example to the young person sitting
next to him.

Heritage fight
The owner of a Peppermint
Grove house will appeal againt
the council’s decision to upgrade its heritage listing to
category 1.
The upgrade prevents the
owner, Alana John, from developing her house at 58A Leake
Street as she had planned.
Councillors were evenly split
on whether to heed their heritage consultant’s upgrade advice
with shire president Rachel
Thomas using her casting vote
to upgrade its listing.
“I understand the timing is
very difficult,” Ms Thomas said.
“Recent information and
feedback [from residents] has
underlined the importance of
identifying and protecting the
shire’s heritage.”
Ms John said she met the
council’s development manager,
Michael Whitbread, last year to
discuss potential limitations.
“At no stage were we made
aware that there would be any
conditions on our property,” Ms
John said.
But Mr Whitbread said:
“Planning environments change
all the time.”
He said that when he met
Ms John there had been no
plans to review the council’s
inventory.
Councillor Brian Kavanagh
opposed the heritage upgrade.
“I feel for the owner of this
property who bought a house
wanting another plan and a
council comes along and retrospectively puts a heritage listing
on it,” he said.
Ms John’s architect, Kerry
Sanderson, assessed the property’s heritage value and concluded
the upgrade was unjustified.
An emotional Ms John told
Ms Thomas: “It’s your opinion
against my livelihood.”

Lorry worry … The biggest-ever North Fremantle Community Association meeting on Tuesday night.

Barnett to use big stick on truckies
By RHIANNON SHINE
Truckies were likely to be
forced to use the $2billion
Perth Freight Link, Premier
Colin Barnett told a public
meeting in North Fremantle
on Tuesday.
Mr Barnett told the biggest ever North Fremantle
Community Association meeting
– more than 200 people – that
the Perth Freight Link would
not bring drastic changes to the
western suburbs.
He said truck drivers would
have strong incentives to use
the road and were unlikely to
have any choice.
“Even with the toll, they will
save money and time and wear
on their vehicles,” Mr Barnett
said.
“And any toll will ensure
there’s a strong financial incentive for heavy vehicles to go on
that toll road to get on to the
Roe Highway.
“There will be a strong financial incentive for them to do so
and there may well be compulsion – they will have no choice,

Peter Newman and Colin Barnett.
they will use that road.
“That’s probably the most
likely scenario.”
Curtin University sustainability expert Peter Newman
said he believed trucks would
not confine themselves to the
freight link route, instead continuing the existing pattern of
dispersing through the western
suburbs (“Link will bring 13,000
trucks a day”, POST, August 22).
Mr Barnett told the meeting
the Perth Freight Link would not
see fewer trucks in the western
suburbs until its final stage was
built, but he did not know how
that would be done.
The final stage would con-

nect Stirling Highway to the
Fremantle port.
“I can’t say to the people of
Mosman Park, Cottesloe, and
so on, ‘You’re going to get less
vehicles’,” he said.
“But if the connection to the
port is built, whatever it might
be, and that links into Roe and
the wider freight link network,
there will certainly be a lot less
vehicles going through [those]
suburbs than would otherwise
be the case.
“We are yet to decide – in fact
we haven’t even got the options
before us – as to what connection
could be done.”
Greens senator Scott Ludlam
said Main Roads data showed
there were 1121 trucks a week
day on Curtin Avenue in 2013-14,
while Stirling Highway recorded
1950 a day the previous year.
He said this meant the projected four-fold increase in the
capacity of the Fremantle Port
would result in 4484 trucks a day
on Curtin Avenue and 7800 on
Stirling Highway by 2050.
Professor Newman said announcing a project that didn’t

Wilson Parking branded a
‘psychopathic corporation’
By LLOYD GORMAN
Wilson Parking was a
“psychopathic corporation”
hurting Subiaco, a council
meeting heard on Tuesday
night.
Councillors blasted the
firm – the largest of its kind
in Australia – as a bully and
scavenger because of the way
it ran local carparks.
Councillor Mark Burns
put up a motion calling for a

review of an agreement with
Wilson Parking, which he
said gave the firm open-ended
control of the Seddon Street
carpark, behind the former
Pavilion Markets, including
46 council-owned bays.
Wilson Parking runs more
than 10 carparks in Subiaco,
one of the highest concentrations in WA, and has plans to
expand.
It also runs all the parking

Bishop: Probe will continue
The Royal Commission into
Trade Union Governance and
Corruption would proceed
with or without Justice
Dyson Heydon, Foreign
Minister Julie Bishop said.
The Australian Council of
Trade Unions applied for
Justice Heydon to remove
himself from the royal commission following allegations of

bias and a conflict of interest.
“The royal commission will
continue with Dyson Heydon,
or with someone else,” Ms
Bishop said.
“That’s my understanding,
that it will continue.
“Many serving High Court
judges have accepted invitations to speak at Labor lawyer
functions.”

5000 places.
“It’s quite clear that if there
is a single issue about Subiaco,
it’s parking,” councillor Hugh
Richardson said.
“We say to visitors, come to
Subiaco − they get clamped,
wheel-clamped, all sorts of
complaints.
“We get murdered.
“If we can do anything to
remove our association with
Wilson, the better we are
going to be.”
He said the council was investing heavily in rebranding
Subiaco.
Councillor Murray Rowe
agreed: “I don’t like [Wilson’s]
attitude. They are very unforgiving and people are not
going to want to come back to
Subiaco as a result of it.”
A $4 for 30-minute parking
ticket in Seddon Street could
quickly become $69 if a motorist was hit with a $65 fine, Mr
Burns said.

planning.
“I don’t blame it on the Premier,” Professor Newman said.
“And I don’t blame it on the
Minister for Transport.
“I actually blame it on the
federal government – who had
money to give out for roads and
wanted to do this one.

“I would think the state government would be able to find
plenty of ways to spend it.”
She said she had briefly discussed the freight link with Mr
Barnett last weekend and would
schedule a further meeting for a
more detailed discussion.

A case of emoji-itis

Environmental activists
employed emoji last weekend in Subiaco to get their
message across to Foreign
Minister Julie Bishop.
The local federal MP will
head Australia’s delegation at UN climate talks
in Paris in November
and members of CASE
(Climate Action for a Safe
Environment) are calling
on her and the government
to set meaningful targets.
Dressed as Parisians,
the activists last Saturday
made their way from
Subiaco railway station
to Ms Bishop’s electorate
office at the opposite end
of Rokeby Road.
The group has already
collected a petition of
4500 signatures and letters
signed by 1400 people, but
along the way people filled
in more than 120 emoji
postcards – addressed to
Ms Bishop.
Campaigners then stuck
them on the wall outside
her office.

Environmental campaigners use Emoji to try and get their
message across outside Julie Bishop’s Suibaco office

“Julie Bishop became
well known for her fluency in emoji, following
an interview in February
with BuzzFeed, conducted
almost entirely in emoji
facial expressions,” said

CASE’s Chilla Bullbeck.
“We hope the emoji
cards may prove an effective method for constituents to communicate their
concerns, especially the
younger generations.”

Crowd sourcing ... or laziness?
Do kids do anything
themselves these days?
A local parent was exasperated when he was asked
to donate to a supposedly
worthy cause on Go Fund
Me, an online crowd sourcing site.
The cause was sending
a Year 10 student on an

overseas school exchange.
“Honestly ... it’s not a
child with a debilitating
disease, or helping send
supplies to Nepal,” the
parent said.
“What happened to
kids washing cars, mowing lawns or doing some

work to raise money for the
things they want to do?”
The dad said he also declined to send the link to
his friends and colleagues.
“They can do the work
themselves − they’ll learn
something,” he said of kids
trying to raise money.

Simpson has a win

Granddaughter mission

After years of pushing
and shoving councils to
merge, but forced earlier
this year to abandon plans
for a wholesale cull of metropolitan councils, Local
Government Minister Tony
Simpson can finally claim
a win.
Late last month Mr
Simpson announced that
two councils had agreed
to merge.
From next year the Shire
of Narrogin and the Town
of Narrogin will become
one authority.
“The shire and town of
Narrogin have recognised
the long-term benefits of
amalgamation and have
been committed to the local
government reform process
for the past five years,” Mr
Simpson said.
“Both councils have been
very supportive of change
and I commend them for
the way in which they
have managed the reform
process.”
Between them they have
a shared population of just
over 5000 residents and a
district of 1600sq.km.

John Wetherall does
not want Nedlands voters
to think he is arrogant

when he is not around to
campaign for the October
council election.
He is off to the US to see
his 16-year-old granddaughter, who was seriously hurt in a car accident.
Lucy had been standing
by the side of the road
waiting to cross when a car
reversed into her.
“I think the driver must
have hit the accelerator
instead of the brake to do
the amount of damage that
was done,” Mr Wetherall
said.

Curtin calls for Bishop
By DAVID COHEN
Julie Bishop will be prime
minister within six months,
according to Glendalough’s
John Lunn-Garner.
“She’s a good bird. She’s my
member,” the Curtin electorate
resident said on Wednesday
night, as Ms Bishop starred at a
packed Politics in the Pub Q&A
at the Paddington Ale House in
Mount Hawthown.
“Tony Abbott’s in trouble. He
doesn’t come across.”
In the pub, Ms Bishop kissed
a baby after handling questions
on Ukraine, climate change,
renewable energy, women in
senior positions, infrastructure,
Syria and other topics.
The day had started with
politics on the breakfast menu

At Tuesday’s council meeting,
school founder Cameron McKay
told councillors he had spoken
to Vidler’s and Mainpeak.
Both firms said they no longer
ran classes at Freshwater Bay.
Mainpeak store manager Josh
Cowell told the POST the store
no longer held paddle-board
demonstrations at Freshwater
Bay.
Mr Cowell cited two reasons:
it was the off-season and the
Swan River Trust had imposed
restrictions on previous lessons.
Asked if they would resumethis summer, Mr Cowell said: “I
have not thought that far ahead
… I have not spoken with the
owner [of Mainpeak]”.
Peppermint Grove development manager Michael
Whitbread said though the
council would reconsider, noise
and parking were still issues for
the requested 7 to 8am lessons
on Saturdays and Sundays.
Mr Whitbread said the problem arose because the Swan
River Trust did not have a
clear policy about how many
groups could be at one place
at one time.

Red, one of the last of the Few
By DAVID COHEN
Time is running out for
Leonard “Red” Bartlett to be
in Westminster Abbey three
weeks from now.
Mr Bartlett is one of the Few,
and on September 20, a Battle
of Britain Sunday service in
the abbey will mark the 75th
anniversary of the victory in
the air against Nazi Germany’s
Luftwaffe.
“Will I be there? I don’t think
so,” Mr Bartlett (99) said.
“I wouldn’t mind, but I’m getting too old to travel.”
Mr Bartlett’s friends hope a
benefactor may stump up the
cost of return business-class
flights and accommodation for
the former Hurricane pilot and
his wife, Joan.
“It would be a fitting gesture
to a man who was one of a small
group who helped save the
free world from tyranny,” one
friend said.
Mr Bartlett – known as Red
because of his hair – was born
in Highbury, London, near the
Arsenal football ground.
“I was always interested in
flying and it was sheer luck I
discovered the RAF Volunteer
Reserve,” he said.
“My father was a World War I
infantryman – Royal Irish Rifles,
I think.
“He was in Passchendaele
and some of the worst battles.
“He didn’t say much about
it, but I was determined to do
something other than being a
soldier.”
Mr Bartlett fought in the Battle
of Britain with 17 Squadron,
whose motto is “Excellere contende” (Strive to excel).
“We were lucky, and based
at Debden, north of the river,”
he said.
“It gave you time to climb,
whereas if you were right on

the coast you had a problem.”
He said luck played a big part
as to whether pilots survived
the war or not.
Another member of the Few,
John Greenwood, lived in WA
until he died about 18 months
ago.
Mr Bartlett said Mr Greenwood
had been catapulted off ships
in his plane to combat enemy
planes.
“When you went up that way
you’d almost certainly had it,”
Mr Bartlett said.
“You had to ditch or bail –
you were going to end up in
the ocean.
“You had to be pretty
foolhardy. John was never off
operations during the war.”
Mr Bartlett eventually became
a group captain and served in
Europe and Africa – more luck,
he said.
“If I’d stayed in Europe,
I certainly wouldn’t have
survived,” he said.
“Ground strafing could get you
into serious trouble.
“Anyone with nerve could
shoot you down.”
When Mr Bartlett was
commanding 253 Squadron he
was on Vis, an Adriatic island
off Yugoslavia.
The Allies opened a landing
strip so damaged planes could
land there.
Once, an American plane
crashed there. Mr Bartlett
reached the flames before
firemen and helped get the
surviving crew out through the
cockpit.
“Quite often if chaps were in
trouble they would creep in,”
he said.
“It got quite hectic there at
times.
“Once, a P38 Lightning
overshot and landed on its back.
“We used 40-gallon drums

Former Australian captain
Arthur Morris, who died this
week aged 93, was one of them.
I have not met a more personable or humble man than
Arthur.
We broke bread together several times, and he was always
happy to share his thoughts.
The twinkle in his eye never
left you for a second while he
was talking to you.
For the record, Arthur made
3533 runs in 46 Tests at an average of 46.48 with 12 centuries.
He would have made many
more runs in many more Tests
had it not been for World War II,
when he served in New Guinea.
He led the batting in the famous “Invincibles” Ashes tour
of England in 1948, captained
Australia in two Tests and,
sadly, retired from cricket in
1955 to be with his first wife,
Valerie, who died of breast
cancer when she was only 33.
Arthur died during the just
completed Test at The Oval.
Coincidentally, many moons
ago, that ground had been the
stage for one of his famous
one-liners.
When he was asked where he
had been when Don Bradman
made cricket’s most famous

He waited a few seconds for

‘Rebellion’ sparks
new Link forum
By LOUISA WALES
A second forum within a week
on the Perth Freight Link, the
latest called by Cottesloe ratepayers, will be held on Tuesday
evening.

Larrikin Angel farewelled
By LINDA CALLAGHAN
Academics, family and friends
packed a Nedlands church
to farewell rebel nun Sister
Veronica Brady on Thursday.
A celebrated intellectual,
Aboriginal advocate and
author, she was buried at
Karrakatta cemetery with an
Aboriginal smoking ceremony
carried out by Ben Taylor.
The refrains of the didgeridoo accompanied the former
Nedlands resident and Loreto
nun to the grave.
She had been a well-known

figure for many years riding
her bicycle through Nedlands.
She died last week aged
86 at MercyCare Aged Care
in Wembley where she had
lived since being diagnosed
with Alzheimer’s disease two
years ago.
Patsy Millet said Sister
Veronica had been born
Patricia Mary and known to her
friends simply as Pat or Ronnie.
“She was a close friend of my
mother, Dame Mary Durack,”
she said.
Ms Millet said she had seen
Sister Veronica two days before
she died and read to her from

the Australian classic Ginger
Mick.
“We had a bit of a chuckle
and when I asked if there was
anything she wanted she said,
‘No, I feel lovely’,” she said.
She slipped into a coma and
died on Thursday, August 20.
Sister Veronica was born
in Melbourne and joined the
Sisters of Loreto. She was a
professor of Australian literature at UWA and a member of
PEN, the world wide organisation of writers that champions
freedom of expression.

China Green lot
back on market

The Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority is having a
second crack at selling a large
block of land in Subiaco’s China
Green.

After being on the market for two
years, the block on the corner of
Hay Street and Roberts Road was
sold in 2013 to developers QUBE,
which wanted to build WA’s largest
suburban office block with more
than 22,000sq.m of space worth an
estimated $170million.
But the deal for that section of
the 4.4ha former Australia Fine
China factory land fell through
and the site remained vacant.
Last week, the MRA advertised
for offers to buy the 6499sq.m
site – which is made up of three

separate lots of 2149sq.m, 1627sq.m
and 2723sq.m.
It said the mixed-use site allowed
buildings up to five storeys.
The MRA confirmed that residential was also included
Kevin Wulff, former president of
the Subiaco China Green Action
Group, said the design guidelines
always allowed the authority to
consider some residential use on
the upper floors.
“We know the SRA/MRA are
having great difficulty selling this
lot and the other commercial lot,”
Mr Wulff said. “They have been on
the market for many years.
“It looks like they are changing the allowable use to attract
buyers.”

Phone: 9386 5448

“The strength of feeling against
the Perth Freight Link in the
Premier’s electorate might be
taking Colin Barnett by surprise,”
said Scott Ludlam, the federal
deputy leader of the Australian
Greens, who will address the
meeting.
“The public campaign has
spread strongly all the way
through the western suburbs,
with Cottesloe people and North
Fremantle people getting involved, and that would have to
spell trouble for the Premier.
“There’s a rebellion going on
within local government about
this.”
Senator Ludlam said the tide
was turning on the freight link,
with all the local councils along
the freight link’s route – barring
Melville – opposing the plan.
On Tuesday night, Mosman
Park council voted to ask Mr
Barnett to push for a cost-benefit
analysis of alternatives to the
proposal.
Mayor Ron Norris successfully moved a motion to tell Mr
Barnett of the council’s concerns
about adverse vehicle and social
impacts if the link goes ahead.
He expected the biggest problems would be in Curtin Avenue,
especially the Wellington Street
intersection, where the council
had long pushed for an underpass.
“At some point in time, action
will have to be taken to solve
the historically poor decision

to leave Curtin Avenue as a
two-lane highway leading into a
four-lane West Coast Highway,”
he said.
“This is genuinely an insane
situation.
“It can only become exacerbated if the volume of traffic,
particularly large traffic, is going
to occur if this proceeds.”
South ward councillor Brett
Pollock said the link would affect
residents’ access to the beach.
Cottesloe council has written
to Mr Barnett asking for more
details.
“Definitive information on
the Perth Freight Link is hard
to come by,” mayor Jo Dawkins
wrote.
The Cottesloe community has
been worried by claims that the
Perth Freight Link will result in
increased heavy vehicle traffic
on Curtin Avenue, to avoid paying the toll.
It had written to the Minister
for Transport, Dean Nalder,
asking for the removal of heavy
vehicles from Cottesloe roads
regardless of whether the freight
link went ahead.
The council also urged the
government to commit to a new
outer port and alternatives to
the Perth Freight Link.
Opposition Leader Mark
McGowan will be among those
addressing the public forum.
The Cottesloe Residents and
Ratepayers’ Association says the
Link will have a big impact on
the suburb.
They want people to bring toy
trucks to next Tuesday’s event, at
6pm in the Cottesloe Civic Centre.
“I don’t think it’s much of a
surprise that Cottesloe residents

‘Chicken coop’
fence to go
By DAVID HUDLESTON
Part of the “chicken coop”
fence surrounding bush in exclusive Fairbairn Street, Minim
Cove, will be removed, despite
protests from the local bush-care
group.
Residents had asked for the
fence, installed as a temporary
measure six years ago to protect
new plants, to be removed as the
council had originally promised.
But Friends of Mosman Park
Bushland convener Sue Conlon
asked councillors at Tuesday
night’s council meeting not to
remove it.
“It is time that we had a permanent fence to keep dogs and cats
out,” she said.
“The Friends of Mosman Park
Bushland have put a lot of work
in and we are nowhere near completed.”
Mosman Park North ward councillor Zenda Johnson said she was
keen for a compromise because
the council had to follow through
on its promise to remove it when
the plants were established.
She proposed removing the
northern section on Fairbairn
Street immediately, the western
side next March, and a review of
the eastern and western sides in
September next year.
But mayor Ron Norris sympathised with the volunteers, saying he wrestled with the idea of
encouraging them to preserve
the bush and then removing the
fence which they wanted kept to
preserve their hard work.
He said he would vote against it.
Ms Johnson said that when the

Privileged to take
a peek at Perkins
More than 700 people
poured through the Harry
Perkins Institute of Medical
Research in Nedlands last
Saturday to explore, experiment and learn more about
research into cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and
other diseases.
“It was the first time we’ve
ever done something like this
but I think we’ll definitely
be holding another open day
next year,” Perkins director,
Professor Peter Leedman said.
“There were all sorts of
people who experienced our
hospitality − lots of kids of
all ages, mums and dads and
grandparents from all walks
of life.
“Tours were extremely
popular.

“Visitors loved the concept
that they got tickets and clearly
felt privileged to be able to go
into the labs.
“I think the visitors were
particularly chuffed that they
were being shown around by
Perkins scientists who seemed
to be in their element.”
One of the activities was to
Kill a Cancer Cell, a hands-on
activity which involved using
pipettes, staining cells and
looking at their magnified
images.
Talks by top Perkins researchers included information on stem cells, breast
cancer and melanoma and
exciting new technologies that
will benefit patients.
They also shone a spotlight
on heart attacks and stroke.

The Subiaco Town Centre
Network formed as a result of
meetings between frustrated
Rokeby Road retailers and
operators and Subiaco council
earlier this year.
It comprises a council representative, the Western Suburbs

which was the Subiaco Business

They said the theatre room

But because it would be next
to an existing storeroom it could

had not been welcomed by everyone and had been vandalised up
to nine times.
“Sections of it were cut and
knocked down and the entry gates
were pulled out and thrown over
the cliff,” she said.
“Such was the mood of the
people.”
She said that was why the council had placed a sign on the fence
saying it would be removed in
three years when the plants were
established.
“Six years have passed, and
neighbours have asked for the
removal of the fence,” she said.
“I believe it is remiss of the town
not to have removed the fence at
the end of the agreed three-year period and I believe oversights such
as this damage our credibility.”

‘Different family’ refused multiple dwelling
By DAVID COHEN
A Peppermint Grove woman’s
plea to councillors to build a
two-storey home for her “different” family was refused by
the narrowest of margins on
Tuesday night.
Barbara Dene-Jones wanted
to build her home in The
Esplanade with two kitchens,
dining rooms and living areas.
But the vote was 3-3, and shire
president Rachel Thomas used
her casting vote to go with the
staff report and refuse Ms DeneJones’s application.
“My family is a little bit different to most,” Ms Dene-Jones said.
“I grew up at 38 The Esplanade.
It’s been in the family 50 years.
I intend living there until the
day I die.”
Ms Dene-Jones said her elderly
father would move into the new
home, and her Sydney-based
brother would live there 10 days
a month.
“The family that enjoys the
home is a lot wider than the
normal family,” she said.
“The son of one of my cousins
offered to help with finance if
we kept the home in the family.”
Ms Dene-Jones said none of
her clan wanted to live in ancillary accommodation.
“None of us wants to live in

Barbara Dene-Jones wants to
build a two-storey home on The
Esplanade, above, after demolishing this two-storey 1940s
Austerity-style brick-and-tile
property, right.
each other’s pockets, either,”
she said.
“I want to sit back and watch
the kids in the garden.
“I hope council won’t make
a judgment on what a normal
family should be.”
Ms Thomas said she understood families came in all shapes
and sizes.
“It’s the configuration and
potential use of the building that
concern me,” Ms Thomas said.
“We try to be flexible where
we can, but it shouldn’t undermine our town planning
scheme.”
Ms Thomas said Grove residents had reminded her at two
recent meetings about how they
felt about multiple dwellings.
“I know this is disappointing,
but I do believe the recommen-

dation [to refuse approval] is
appropriate.”
Councillor Brian Kavanagh
said Ms Dene-Jones should
have been congratulated and
refusing her home would be an
indictment.
“This is where families are
heading,” he said.
He said the property could
not be turned into strata titles,
which protected the shire.
“We are taking our planning
scheme to the nth degree, to the
disadvantage of a family.
“We’ll get a lot more of these.
We need to accommodate them,
not refuse them.”
In a report, council planning

manager Michael Whitbread
said plans showed a ground-floor
study and a first-floor sunroom
both had wardrobes, effectively
making each floor a three-bedroom multiple dwelling.
Some councillors worried
about whether plans showing
one access point to both floors
meant the home would be two
units.
In the report, Mr Whitbread
said two neighbours had informed the council of their
worries about the plans.
One said the proposed setback of Ms Dene-Jones’s home
was out of whack with the two
neighbours.

Mr Whitbread said in his report that the setback should be
increased by 3.2m.
The existing property, a twostorey 1940s Austerity-style
brick-and-tile home, would be
demolished to make way for the
new building.
Ms Thomas, deputy president
Charles Hohnen and councillor
Greg Peters voted for refusal; Mr
Kavanagh and councillors Scott
Fleay and Dawne Horrex voted
against refusal.
At the end of the meeting, Mr
Kavanagh was angry as he left
the building.
“Grossly unfair to two people
tonight,” he said.

ProCott grows two heads … Michael Tucak, left, and Hament Chavda have taken over from Philip
Angers as the head of Cottesloe’s business lobby.

Making the most of Napoleon St
Cottesloe’s town centre is
special, Hament Chavda says.
Hament, who owns Nature’s
Harvest in Napoleon Street, used
to own pharmacies in Britain.
“In the UK, people go into
big shopping centres with no
sunlight: it kills the community
aspect,” he said.
“But Napoleon Street and
Cottesloe’s CBD are unique.”
Hament and Michael Tucak
were elected as co-presidents
of business lobby ProCott at
last Tuesday’s AGM and want
business owners to get more
involved.

ProCott has 147 members
whose council rates fund the
group.
Michael, a lawyer with an
office next to Cottesloe Vet in
Stirling Highway, said Hament
was very “big picture” and
skilled at inspiring and motivating.
“I’m able to bring an eye for
detail and process,” he said.
Top of the co-presidents’ agenda are more and better signs,
pointers to shops off Napoleon
Street, and Christmas lights.
An evening event tied in with
March’s Sculpture by the Sea is

also under discussion.
Michael and Hament took
over the reins from Philip
Angers, who had the job for
nearly four years.
“I’d love it if they could get
landowners to clean up their
facades,” Philip said.
“Christmas lights would also
be great to have.”
Other ProCott people are treasurer Mark Townrow, secretary
Kerry Pearson, and committee
members Patrick Ostrini and
Kevin McCabe.
There is a vacancy for a committee member.

Norris calls for even sharing on library
Mosman Park has asked
Peppermint Grove and
Cottesloe to review the Grove
library agreement and evenly
share funding, according to
Mosman Park mayor Ron
Norris.
Mr Norris said the “historical problem” of the library’s
shared management had been

finding an equitable way of
sharing costs.
Peppermint Grove CEO John
Merrick said that since 2009
funding had been determined
by the population of each municipality and that Peppermint
Grove was happy with that.
Mr Merrick said Cottesloe’s
views were similar, in that it
was open to discussion but did

not want to change funding
arrangements.
Mr Norris said: “[Mosman
Park] council thinks the census method is not favourable
… it doesn’t reflect equitably
on Mosman Park’s ratepayers’
use of the library.
“It is about equity.
“The existing arrangement
requires periodic reviews.”

Board Treasurer required for a not-for-profit retirement village based in the western
suburbs of Perth. Lisle Villages (Inc.) is an independent retirement village, comprising
137 independent living units.
Position Overview.
In conjunction with the Chief Executive Officer, the Treasurer is tasked with keeping the
finances healthy so the Association can achieve its mission.
The Treasurer should have the ability for critical appraisal, can contribute to strategic
planning and be creative about generating funds. Recognised Australian qualifications
in accounting are essential. A working knowledge of the provisions of the Retirement
Villages Act 2015, the Fair Trading Code (Retirement Villages) 2015 and the Associations
Incorporation Act will be highly regarded.
Some people on the Association’s Board do not have well developed financial skills and it
is important the Treasurer is able to explain the finance report simply and clearly.
The main duties of the Treasurer are to oversee the financial administration of the
Association, review procedures and financial reporting, advise the Board on financial
strategy, advise on appropriate investing of the Association’s cash reserves and review the
Investment Policy on a regular basis.
While Lisle Villages (Inc.) is a not-for-profit organisation, the Board understand that
people should be compensated for their time. A salary of up to $1,000 per month, plus
any reasonable expenses will be negotiated with the successful applicant.

Jualbup flood fears
are an exaggeration

Geoffrey Dean sent in this photo showing how at the height of the 2010 hailstorm, road drains blocked by smashed
leaves sent torrents across the lawns into a bone-dry Jualbup. The problem was the leaves, not the water, he said.

Leave that fence and plant native climbers
I am among many residents
of Mosman Park who were distressed to read that the council
is considering removing the
fence around the protected area
in Minim Cove Park (“Mosman
hears from both sides of the
fence”, POST, August 15).
This beautiful area is the green
heart of Mosman Park.
It provides a haven for local
flora and fauna, which in turn
support biodiversity and green
spaces.
Research has conclusively

shown that greener suburbs are
cooler and have cleaner air and
happier residents.
This green heart of Mosman
Park benefits the whole suburb
by reducing air-conditioning
costs and sustaining a green
suburb.
The fence in question has
enabled a resource that has
improved the value of all the
properties in our suburb and
in particular those in Fairbairn
Street.
This protected area is the

Claremont is in good hands
I was intrigued that former
Claremont councillor Anne
Halsted detailed the allowance
awarded to councillors, but did
not mention that the allowance
rate was set by the Salaries and
Allowances Tribunal, not local
government itself (“Claremont
needs you”, POST, August 22).
I doubt if anyone really expects
their elected representatives to
run a home office, with all the
associated costs, with no reimbursement.

I have absolutely no argument
with encouraging people to stand
for local government, or that we
need the best representatives
possible.
As a long-standing councillor,
I am delighted to attest to the
very high quality of the current
council and administration, and
their ability to work well and
harmoniously together.

result of the dedicated work
of the council and the Friends
of Mosman Park Bushland in
months and years of voluntary
and paid work in planning,
planting and maintaining this
beautiful resource.
It is critical for the survival of
this resource and its associated
benefits that it continues to be
protected from domestic animals
and ubiquitous weed seeds by
the unobtrusive fence.
Removing the fence to improve
the view would jeopardise this
precious resource.
Planting an attractive native
climber to cover the fence, or
replacing the existing fence
with a stronger, cat-proof fence
would be preferable.
A great many residents in
Mosman Park implore the council to respect the hard work that
volunteers and the council have
put into developing this natural
haven.
Improve the fence.
Please don’t remove it.

Parts of the report, “Flood
fears dog Jualbup” (POST,
August 22) seem misinformed.
The freak hailstorm of March
22, 2010, did not cause “major
flooding in and around Lake
Jualbup”.
A half-full lake cannot possibly flood.
So there was no flooding in
and around Jualbup.
Nor could the hailstorm be
“deemed a one-in-a-100-year
storm”.
On hailstorm day, Subiaco
waste-water treatment plant
(the official weather station
nearest Jualbup) recorded
50.4mm, with none during the
few days before or after.
During the years from 1969
to 2014 (the most recent period
with complete records), 50.4mm
in one day was equalled or
exceeded 23 times.
So it occurred on average
once every two years, which
is not exactly once every 100
years.
Finally, the document quoted
is open to misinterpretation

Come on down
Re Mercy Stone’s letter
(“Interest rate is extortion”,
Letters, POST, August 15), bemoaning councils charging more
than 11% interest if rates are
paid by instalment.
Perhaps she should move down
to Denmark, where the shire
allows you to pay by instalment
interest-free.
We also have a good bridge
club down here.

because it omits crucial technical details.
In particular, the reductions
in rainfall (due to climate
change) and in road runoff
(due to the recent installation
of soak pits) have obviously
reduced the flood risk from
what it used to be.
In the worst-case scenario,
the amount of rain and runoff
being delivered per day averages around 15 times the daily
leakage, so reducing leakage
will have little effect.
So a system designed to cope
in the past should certainly
cope in the future.
“Flood fears” seem to be
exaggerated.
Geoffrey Dean
Cullen Street, Shenton Park

Flooding
would take
four storms
“Flood fears dog Jualbup”
(POST, August 22) stresses
fears of possible flooding at
the Shenton Park wetland.
Interestingly, for the fearful, the 2010 storm filled the
lake to less than halfway up
the perimeter wall.
To flood the surroundings
as far as Herbert Road would
need four of those storms …
all at the same time.
I think POST readers can
do their own risk assessment
of that possibility.

Grove builder goes
into liquidation

Cathy’s checking on
Claremont finances

A Peppermint Grove builder
has gone into liquidation and
ceased to trade.

By DAVID COHEN
Cathy Bohdan has gone from
utilities to local government
via fast food.
The former Newman College
student, now Claremont’s
business improvement manager,
is finalising a health check on
the council.
“The council is in a good
position,” Ms Bohdan said.
“I’m here to enhance and build
on what Claremont’s already
got.”
Ms Bohdan has worked in
business improvement jobs for
seven years.
After a stint with Synergy,
Western Power and Horizon
Power she worked at QSR
Holdings (Red Rooster et al).
She said jobs were not at stake
among Claremont’s 69 full-time
employees
“I’m looking to drive
efficiencies ... it’s a health check
on the business, then working out
the priorities,” she said.
Ms Bohdan she she would
assess both financial and nonfinancial benefits of change.
“If we make a change, how
much will it cost?” she said.
At QSR Holdings, Ms Bohdan
shifted the company’s Perthbased finance department to
the east coast.
“It took six months and
involved recruiting a whole new
team,” she said.
“Local government is a new
industry for me but it is proving
to be really interesting.”
Council CEO Stephen Goode
said Ms Bohdan had already
saved Claremont money in IT
after assessing the council’s
systems.

Gage Roads Pty Ltd had six
big homes under construction
in the western suburbs.
The Headquarters principal
James Thackray said he had
been appointed liquidator of
GRC Group Pty Ltd and Gage
Roads Pty Ltd last Monday, by
special resolution of members.
“GRC Group was the main
trading and construction entity.
There are six homes under
construction, with four largely
complete,” Mr Thackray said.
“The provisional trade creditor listing totals $1.5million,
plus other loans from related
entities.”
The firm was building Azure
Capital chairman John Poynton’s
home in Cliff Way, Claremont;
Challis Gold managing director Tim Goyder’s home in
Swanbourne; and Detmil founder and director Denis Criddle’s
home in Dalkeith.
Mr Thackray said Gage Roads

No shark barrier trial

“The sharks are not going
to go away.”

Cottesloe councillor Jay
Birnbrauer said he was very
disappointed the shark barrier
wasn’t going ahead at his beach.
On Monday night, councillors
voted 8-1 against a trial this
summer.
“A year ago we were prepared
to put in $65,000 for a trial,” Mr
Birnbrauer said.

“I swim there. I’m not afraid of
sharks. The barrier is for people
who are afraid of sharks.
“The sharks are not going to
go away. We should be testing
things like this.”
Councillor Rob Rowell, who
last week said he was prepared
to put in $10,000 of his own, said
a barrier would benefit Marine
Parade businesses.
“It’s disappointing there is no
support from the state govern-

ment or tourism,” Mr Rowell
said.
Councillor Jack Walsh
said 80% of Cottesloe beach
users were not locals, yet the
state government was happy
to give Scarborough beach
$30million.
The state government is
funding barriers at Albany and
Joondalup.
The cost of a Cottesloe barrier
would have been $130,000.

Highway, Peppermint Grove.
“The property will be placed
on the market for sale in the
coming weeks. It is apparently
the subject of a rezoning assessment,” Mr Thackray said.
The creditors’ meeting will be
held on Thursday, September 3.
Gage Roads managing director
Gianpaolo Gerardo Crugnale
appeared in court in April after
being charged with fraud offences.
Police allege Mr Crugnale
charged a client for a portable
site office that had not been
provided.
It is also alleged Mr Crugnale
charged a client for more hours
than were worked on a site.

Lights up
for safety
Mast-arm mounted traffic
signals will be fitted above the
Railway and Aberdare roads
intersection to improve safety.
Traffic lights will also be upgraded to LED and the left-turn
pocket extended and realigned
as part of the $109,999 Black
Spot funding.
Main Roads WA figures show
that one crash at this intersection (between January 2010
and December 2014) resulted
in someone being taken to
hospital while people needed
medical treatment in six other
incidents.
There were 50 crashes there
during the four-year period.
A grant of $20,000 will be
used to upgrade traffic lights
at the Nicholson and Rokeby
road intersection to LED lights.

Bridge to be
upgraded

St Hilda’s takes gold
in Titration Stakes

The 55-year-old bridge at
Haydn Bunton Drive, in front
of Subiaco Oval, is to get an
overhaul.

While the Titration Stakes
may sound like a horse race,
it is on the chemistry field
that three Year 12 St Hilda’s
students had a win this week.
Lara Edmands, Faith Chow
and Laura Peh individually
completed a complex titration in
the competition, run by the Royal
Australian Chemical Institute.
Each of them won a gold
plaque for her results.
The team scores were then
totalled and the girls also came
first in WA.
“We are absolutely delighted
with this result,” science head
Cecilia Kinsella said.
“We have previously had students reach the finals, but this
is the first time we have taken
out the state title.
“We are passionate about chemistry at St Hilda’s and have our
fingers crossed the girls will also
place well at the national level.”
Titration is a chemical analysis
technique used to find out the
concentration of an unknown
solution.
Judging is based on the values
each team reports, ranked on
their accuracy compared with
the actual concentration.

Main Roads WA and the Public
Transport Authority are planning maintenance work to treat
the bridge on the Fremantle line
for concrete and reinforcement
corrosion problems.
Its vehicle crash barrier system will also be upgraded.
Bridge 0930, as it is identified,
was built in 1960.
Work is expected to take 25
weeks and to be finished next
year.
There was a visit to the bridge
this week by interested parties, and contractors have until
September 11 to bid for the work.

Mosman saves
on fuel costs
Weddings at Mosman Park’s
reserves and cheaper fuel
prices have boosted the council’s bottom line.
Faith Chow, left, Lara Edmands and Laura Peh are concentration experts.

Drinking rules shaken and stirred
Summer is coming and so
are beachside drinkers to
restaurants at City Beach – if
liquor licensing bosses agree
to relax limits.
Operators of Clancy’s Fish
Bar and the as yet unopened
Odyssea in the new surf club
development nearby want to

alter the areas where drinks
can be served without food.
Cambridge council owns both
buildings and, according to the
leases, could not unreasonably
block the changes, the town’s
development committee was
told.
At Clancy’s, customers could
drink without meals on the deck

and verandah only, but in bad
weather they had to be closed,
councillors were told.
Under the application, numbers would still be limited to
200 but where they sat would
be changed, council staff said.
At the Odyssea, the tenant
wants to be able to serve alcohol anywhere on the premises

provided drinkers are seated.
The committee agreed no more
than 50% of customers should be
served alcohol without meals.
“The town has established
the City Beach entertainment
precinct as a family-friendly
area,” staff said.
There will be no alcohol
served before 11am.

The financial statements for
the past financial year show
the council saved $32,265 on its
budgeted fuel costs.
Corporate services manager
Andreis Gertenbach told the
August 11 corporate and technical services committee meeting
the council had budgeted for
buying fuel at $1.56 per litre.
He said weddings, insurance
claim recoups and other fees for
hiring parks had raised $60,401.
Income from oval hire exceeded the budgeted amount
by $10,868.
Parking fines also exceeded
the budget target by $17,654.

Embrace what makes
you different: Mzungu
By LLOYD GORMAN
Follow your passion in life
and embrace what makes you
different.
That was some of the advice
from Fremantle Docker Tendai
Mzungu to a group of deaf and
hard-of-hearing students at
Shenton College this week.
Tendai talked about his long
and hard journey to make it as
an AFL player, the setbacks
along the way and the importance of working hard, staying
positive and surrounding oneself
with supportive people.
He said deaf or hard-ofhearing people faced significant
challenges but it also made them
different.
“Being different is not something that should be seen as a

weakness or that you should shy
away from, it’s something we
should embrace,” Tendai said.
“I embrace my hair, I get
yelled at all the time from the
crowd to cut my hair. Who cares?
I like my hair, it makes me me.
“I think with your hearing it’s
what makes you you. It’s not
a negative, it’s something you
should be proud off.
“All of you guys know something I don’t know. There are
thousands of things you can do
that I can’t do, that’s for sure.
“There’s so much you can offer
the world. Please don’t see it
as a weakness, see it as a real
strength.”
He advised students to find
what they were passionate about
and pursue it.
“Make time and sacrifices to
pursue that passion ... it makes
you a happier person,” he said.
As part of his training to become a teacher, Tendai spent
four weeks doing “prac” in term
four at Shenton College last
year in the physical education
department.

Hospital bosses are to be
asked to provide free parking
for workers who start in the
early hours.
Nedlands council is planning a parking ban in Campsie
Street and neighbouring
residential streets behind the
QEII Medical Centre.
Hollywood ward councillor
Robert Binks said the council
should tell hospital administrators about the ban and
ask them to cater for workers whose shifts start about
3.30am and finish about 8am.

Youth Advisory Council members from across WA held their biggest meeting in Mosman Park last Sunday.

YACkety-yack in Mosman Pk
The Mosman Park Youth
Advisory Council hosted
YACtivate!, WA’s largest
meeting of YACs last Sunday.
Topics covered included public speaking, how to run events,
publicity and marketing, event
photography, social media
and attracting and retaining
members.
The Mosman Park YAC also
prepared a YAC directory for

distribution throughout WA.
Attending were 62 YAC
representatives from Mosman
Park, Subiaco, Nedlands,
Rockingham, Capel, South
Perth, Bayswater, Melville,
Katanning, Cambridge and
Bunbury, plus the Youth
Disability Advocacy Network
and Multicultural Youth Arts
Network WA.
“This is a wonderful initiative that brings together civic-

minded young people from far
and wide to collaborate, share
ideas and work together,”
Mosman Park mayor Ron
Norris said.
“The young people of
Mosman Park, and of Perth
and WA, have so much to
offer, and I am inspired by
their energy, enthusiasm and
commitment to improving our
town, our city and our state
into the future.”

‘Put playground
before parking’
New playground equipment in
Mt Claremont should not wait
while parking was improved in
Dalkeith, councillors argued.
Councillor Leo McManus said
Nedlands council had already announced the improvements to the
Zamia Street playground, but now
staff wanted to put it off for a year.
More than $50,000 earmarked
for the playground could be
used to move bollards along The
Esplanade, on the otherside of the
Nedlands council area, councillors
were told.
Councillor Nigel Shaw said:
“It is quite crazy. I would much
rather pay the money to upgrade
the playground than dick around
with bollards on The Esplanade.”
Mr McManus said the council
had only just set its budget and
now it was proposing to change it.
Staff had suggested imposing

a three-hour parking limit and
moving the riverside bollards to
increase the space available.
The council agreed to the new
time limit without moving the
bollards.

Mt Claremont.

My house is a hot box!
Part of a Nedlands house is
unusable in summer because it
turns into a hot box, the owner
has told Nedlands council.

Caris Bailey said an old awning at the Bulimba Road house
was woefully inadequate and she
wanted to replace it with a patio.
But councillors said she could
not put it on the boundary of the
subdivided block and must stick
to setback rules.
Ms Bailey said: “The enclosed
patio is like a sauna once the
temperature reaches 30 degrees
Celsius and last summer I had to
draw the curtains in the dining
room in the middle of the afternoon
to protect the furniture and try to
keep the house cool.

“There are no window coverings
in the kitchen at this stage, which
meant I avoided this room as much
as possible in January, February
and March,” she said.
Councillor Toni James told
the council committee: “I think
it is unreasonable that owners
of a subdivided property ask for
reduced setback to build on the
boundary.”
Councillor Nigel Shaw, an architect, said the proposed patio
would not solve the problem.
“The heat will build up and it
will become unbearable,” he said.
Mayor Max Hipkins said: “I was
not impressed with the owner
saying she had done nothing to
ameliorate the heat in the kitchen.”

Rachael takes her
skills to help Kenya
Rachael Young will spend
months working on a development project in Africa after
winning a competitive international fellowship.

All smiles … Tommy Andrew with Tony Willerton-Lowe. Photo: Paul McGovern

Tony helps Tommy on his bike
Pedal power with a difference is helping a young boy
do what he thought he would
never be able to do – ride a bike.
Many take it for granted, but
11-year-old Tommy Andrews,
of Cottesloe, has mitochondrial
disease, a debilitating condition
that causes delayed physical development, loss of coordination
and muscle weakness.
As a toddler, Tommy simply
didn’t have the strength or coordination to ride, unlike his
sporty twin sister, Dimity.
But an article in the POST
about Charlotte Braden, who

needed help with her wheels,
inspired close family friend
Janet Birtwistle to contact the
Mosman Park Community Men’s
Shed, whose members had got
Charlotte on the road in style
(“Charlie’s Angels get papal
inspiration”, July 25).
“I contacted the shed and they
were amazingly supportive,”
Janet said.
Ready to help was former
London double-decker bus
driver Tony Willerton-Lowe, an
expert welder.
Taking time out from caring for his disabled wife, Mr

Willerton-Lowe fitted Tommy’s
Captain America bike with
special training wheels and a
push handle, for when Tommy
gets tired.
“It was no bother,” Mr
Willerton-Lowe said.
“I first learnt to weld more
than 50 years ago, so it was
simple process to give Tommy
his freedom.”
Tommy loved the bike so much
he dropped into the shed with a
donation and a box of choccies.
“It’s great,” Tommy said. “I
will soon be able to catch up
with my sister.”

Rachael is one of just four
people selected from around the
world – and the only Australian
– for the nine-month fellowship
with American non-profit organisation Mama Hope.
A former St Hilda’s student,
Rachael graduated in law and
international relations and
spent a year working in the UK
as an intern for an MP.
She said she had planned to
return to work for him, but his
party had been decimated in
the polls, with all its MPs losing
their seats.
“I was at a loose end and I
didn’t want to be a tax lawyer,”
Rachael said
“I’d always loved this charity,
Mama Hope, and knew they had
a graduate fellowship.
“I applied in May and got accepted, quite unexpectedly.”
As part of her fellowship,
Rachael will spend three months
fundraising in Perth before setting off for Kenya in October.
“I have to raise US$20,000,
which with the unfortunate exchange rate, is about $27,000,”
she said.
“Then I bring that with me
to my project and push it into
sustainability initiatives that I
think they need.”
Rachael will spend the rest
of her year in Kenya, working
on a program for girls living in
a slum.
The project educates, clothes,
feeds and empowers girls who
would otherwise have very few
opportunities.

Kids help nature
to ‘grow bigger’
Torrential rain didn’t stop
some Claremont children from
exercising their green thumbs
last Friday.
Freshwater Bay Primary
School students planted trees
and native ground covers
with workers from Bunnings
Claremont.
Year 5 student Lucy Naylor
said: “People are chopping down
trees − they are so naughty.”
Her Year 6 friend Max
Osborne said the school planting would help “nature grow
bigger”.

Planet Ark’s National Tree
Day manager Debbie Agnew
said schools were branching
out in many ways to get their
students into nature.
“They can beautify and green
their school grounds, start a
vertical garden or vegie patch,
grow seeds in their class and go
on a bush walk,” Debbie said.

Champers on the deck would be nice
By DAVID COHEN
Approving a deck on top of a
garage in Rosser Street could
be dangerous, Cottesloe deputy
mayor Peter Jeanes said last
Monday night.
Councillors voted 5-1 to
defer plans for Geoff and Fran
Holman’s front garage after a
report said council staff had
concerns and a neighbour had
objected.
“I don’t object to some sort of
garage at the front − you need
something there,” Mr Jeanes
said.
“I find it difficult to approve
the deck above. We’re moving
into dangerous territory.”
Architect Laurie Scanlan said
the Holmans’ application had
been with the council for more
than six months.
“It’s a very, very small pro-

“Small project” … Cottesloe councillors are not keen on this front
garage with roof deck (right) for 1 Rosser Street (left) .
ject,” Mr Scanlan said.
He said he understood the
council’s position of not wanting garages at the front of
properties.
Mr Scanlan said the Holmans
were elderly and the front
garage would help them drive
in and turn around so they
wouldn’t have to reverse into
a tight street.
Mr Scanlan said the garage
was well behind the front set-

back required by the council.
In their objection, neighbours
Pat and Lyn Walsh said they
were worried about the very
limited setback of the garage,
and their privacy being affected
by people on the deck.
Mr Jeanes said he understood
the Holmans’ desire to drive on
to their property and be able to
turn around.
Councillor Katrina Downes
said she didn’t think anyone

would notice the garage, because it would be part of an imposing house of two Californian
bungalows on top of each other.
“A deck out the front brings
a sense of community,” Ms
Downes said.
“You don’t see people in their
front yards.”
Mr Jeanes said as long as the
Holmans drank tea on their
deck, that would be okay.
Ms Downes said: “I don’t
mind if they have a glass of
champagne, either.”
Mayor Jo Dawkins said the
issue was difficult.
“Off-street parking is something we all need and value,”
Ms Dawkins said.
“If [the garage] can be redesigned, it would be a better
outcome.”
This week’s full council meeting confirmed the deferment.

Question over
lawyers’ bill
Mosman Park council paid its
lawyers a total of $5755.43 for
advice on damaged street trees.
The figure was contained in
its accounts for payment.
At the corporate and technical services committee meeting
on August 11, South ward councillor Wesley Davies queried
the amount paid to McLeods
Barristers and Solicitors
Corporate services manager
Andreis Gertenbach said it was
for advice concerning damage
to street trees.
“I don’t think a tree costs
that much,” Mr Davies said.
But CEO Kevin Poynton cut
the debate short, suggesting
the staff provide councillors
with more information about
the bill outside the council
meeting.

Artist, E. Phillips Fox, visited North
Africa in 1911 and produced some of the most
free-flowing and impressionistic of his works in
just two months. Join UWA graduate Dr Robert
Bower as he provides an examination of some of
the North African paintings which have had their
authenticity questioned. He suggests reversion
to the original title of five works, and a change of
attribution for two works.

Dr Susan Prescott, internationally recognised
paediatrician, reveals how modern
environmental change not only increases
the risk of early conditions such as allergies,
autism and childhood obesity, but is also
driving the rising burden of many later-life
disorders and diseases.

UWA’s School of Music presents international

September 26 - October 3

Ice-cream
hits the
right spot
It’s not good when ice-cream
disintegrates in your mouth,
Mark Livermore says.

Cheese please! … Chief judge Russell Smith loves his job.
Photos: Billie Fairclough

Sweet things … Chocolate judges Jasmine Ng and Roy Southwell
tasted dozens of flavours in Claremont this week.

The head ice-cream judge
tasted dozens of creamy creations on Tuesday, including
tequila misu, salted caramel,
and pistachio.
“Manufacturers are trying
different things all the time,”
Mark said.
“We look at presentation, body
and texture, and flavour.
“You don’t want an ice-cream
that’s weak in the body.”
Mark said butter and cream
were natural foods.
“They compare very well to
processed food,” he said.
“There’s been as much research on the benefits of dairy
fat as the drawbacks.”
There were more than 300
ice-cream, cheese and chocolate
entries. Several gold medals
were awarded with results to
be announced on September 3.

Chocs and cheese
for every palate
Roy Southwell knows his
spices.
Roy, who is chief chocolate judge at the Perth Royal
Dairy Show at Claremont
Showgrounds, bit into something
that looked like a bloody nipple
on Monday and recognised its
unusual flavour immediately.
“That is asafoetida, an Indian
spice,” he said.
“It’s beautiful.
“It’s not used that much, but
when they use it you can taste it.”
Roy said the chocolate – labelled as a savoury spice mix
with maple and banana – looked
like a parking cone.
“It’s nicely finished on the
bottom,” another judge said.
The judges also tasted strawberry and champagne truffles,
rum hazelnut treats, and many
types of milk and dark chocolate.
Roy said chocolate entries
were up 30% this year, to 101.
“We have more boutique
places making chocolate and
more companies moving into
Perth,” he said.
On the other side of the Dairy

Pavilion, nine judges were
tasting more than 100 cheese
entries.
Products were scored out of
20 according to composition,
flavour, being true to label and
presentation, with gold awarded
for 18 points and above.
Chief judge Russell Smith
said the category with the most
entries was white moulds, like
brie and camembert.
“Quite a few are from the east
coast and they haven’t entered
before,”Russell said.
“We’re very pleased.
“We get a chance to compare
local cheeses with the interstate
ones.”
A big cheese trend is non-dairy
products.
“We’ll see our first buffalo
cheese entry next year,” Russell
said.
“Most areas in Australia aren’t
suitable for dairy, and sheep
don’t require as much rain and
tolerate the heat much better.
“A buffalo blue cheese just
won in Brisbane: it is one of
the best blue cheeses I’ve eaten
anywhere in the world.”

We scream … Celeste Kerkhofs, left, Mark Livermore, and Ros Garstone have a lovin’ spoonful in Claremont.

Maverick’s still
worth a gamble
Some seniors are set in their
ways – and Maverick is no
exception.
The nine-year-old male rottweiler at the Shenton Park
dog refuge can’t live with other
animals or children.
But refuge president Karen
Rhodes said Maverick was a
gorgeous boy and just wanted
to be rubbed.
“If you stop he will clearly
tell you not to by nudging your
hand,” Karen said.
“Don’t be fooled by his age. He
does still hop around like a puppy
when you get him all excited.”
Maverick – and Hugo, Kadarj,
Katherine, Poppy, Russel,
Chelsea and Tasha – are all

older dogs looking for homes.
“Maverick’s ideal home would
be calm, where he does not
have to worry about young kids
bothering him and he can just
relax,” Ms Rhodes said.
“Part-time workers or retired
people would be best and he
must be inside with his mum
and dad when they are home as
it is what he is used to.”
Despite his age, Maverick still
needs two 30-minute walks a day.
The Lemnos Street refuge
relies on community support
to fund its operations.
It has a pro-life policy and
does not put down any healthy
animals in its care that can be
re-homed.

Protesters at UWA covered their faces for fear of reprisals if they visit Iran.

Rallying as execution day looms
People covered their faces
when they rallied in support
of condemned Iranian scholar
and philosopher Mohammad
Taheri outside the University of
WA’s Winthrop Hall last week.
Sam, one of the protesters,
said they could not be named or
identified otherwise they would
face arrest if they visited Iran.
“We are demanding an unconditional lift of Dr Taheri’s
execution sentence issued by

the Iranian court and his unconditional release from prison,”
Sam said.
He said the UWA group
was supporting a worldwide
campaign for Dr Taheri, who
had been condemned to die
for “spreading corruption on
earth”.
Sam said Mohammad Taheri
was a spiritual teacher, researcher and scholar who had
never been involved in any

political activities within or
outside Iran.
“His teachings of love and
union of all mankind have been
a source of inspiration and healing to countless people around
the world,” Sam said.
“He has never been given the
opportunity of a fair trial.
“Every day we are getting
closer to the execution day.”

Submissions invited on Rehab land
People have until September
18 to comment on government
plans to rezone parts of the land
the former Shenton Park rehabilitation hospital stands on.

Dog refuge volunteers Linda Mortimore, left, and Barbara Stephenson
with senior home resident Maverick.

The Environmental Protection
Authority said the site was
between two protected Bush
Forever sites, but there was no
need for an assessment.
“The amendment is unlikely to
have a significant effect on the
environment,” EPA staff said.
They acknowledged the banksia woodland was very good
quality and an important habitat

for endangered cockatoos.
“The EPA notes that the
proposal may result in the loss
of habitat for carnaby’s black
cockatoo and the forest redtailed black cockatoo,” staff said.
“Planning for the site should
therefore seek to retain as much
cockatoo habitat as possible.”
The change to urban zone
would allow housing to be built
on the 15.785ha site.
State development agency
LandCorp has already drawn
up draft proposals that would
allow some blocks of apartments
up to 12 storeys high.

Rezoning the land is the first
step and does not consider the
details of potential development.
The Water Corporation has
not made any objections and it
is suggested Aboriginal heritage
consultants should be appointed.
The rezoning report can
be seen at the WA Planning
Commission, 140 William Street,
Perth; Battye Library; and
Nedlands and Subiaco councils.
Submissions must be made
on a Form 57 and lodged with
the WA Planning Commission
by close of business on Friday,
September 18.

Glad survived the 5500km Bash

Grove puts on
real treat for
music lovers
I was privileged to attend a
recent evening concert at the
Grove library, Cottesloe.
My wife and I were enthralled
by Roman Rudnytsky, an
American pianist who tours the
world and comes to Australia
every two years.
He had played to a sell-out
audience in Joondalup a few
days earlier.
His repertoire included
Chopin, Debussy, Ravel and
Rachmaninoff, with the highlight being his own transcription for solo piano of Grieg’s
Piano Concerto – all for $20,
including refreshments.
Thank you, Grove library, for
a memorable evening.
The one disappointment
was the lack of bodies in the
audience.
But Mr Rudnytsky didn’t seem
to mind and engaged with all
15 of us quite admirably.
A real gentleman.
To all music lovers, you
missed a rare treat.
Watch out for his return in
two years and try googling him,
if interested, to see and hear
him play.

the POST (“Let’s not forget Perry
Lakes debacle”, August 15),
Cambridge councillor Corinne
MacRae is worried about a
dysfunctional council if Keri
Shannon is successful in her
bid to become mayor.
This concern reminds me of
the pot calling the kettle black.
The present council is dysfunctional.
This has been demonstrated
by its handling and understanding of Amendment 31 and, in my
opinion, its total disregard of the
ratepayers whose interests it is
supposed to represent.
Last year, at a development
sub-committee meeting, Ms
MacRae spent more time discussing a cubby house than she
did Amendment 31, which was
on the same agenda.
If this wasn’t a demonstration
of dysfunctional behaviour, in
terms of understanding what
is important to the community,
what is?
I thank her, mayor Simon

Withers and other councillors
who in my view showed total
disrespect to the ratepayers of
City Beach and Floreat over
Amendment 31 because they
have energised and activated
ratepayers.
We now have ratepayers who
will look closely at prospective councillors, who will ask
them what their values are,
what they consider important
in Cambridge’s development,

and if they believe in open and
honest consultation.
Stay calm, Ms MacRae: it may
not be as bad as you think.
It may be a new epoch for
open and honest consultation
and engagement with the community, and if it is not what you
like, you have the opportunity
to resign.

Keri Shannon

Keri Shannon has residents’ interests at heart
The Cambridge mayoral
election campaign has been
launched with criticism of mayoral candidate Keri Shannon by
councillor Corinne MacRae and
Pamela van der Meulen (Letters,
POST, August 15).
Ms MacRae is not affected
by Amendment 31 and is not
answerable electorally to those
affected by it, but she chose to
support it in the face of massive
community opposition.
It puzzles me why Ms van der

Meulen has such a strong interest in an issue that also does not
affect her, and why someone
involved in a ratepayers’ organisation can be so supportive of
those who choose to ignore the
wishes of ratepayers.
I don’t know Ms Shannon,
but from following events in
Cambridge it is clear to me that
all she has done is inform and
galvanise a community.
I think that having an interest
in, and a respect for, the opin-

ions of local residents, as she
does, is a prime requirement
for office.
I don’t understand why those
who do not believe that actually
run for office.
Ms MacRae will not be up
for re-election until 2017, but
I hope those eligible to vote in
Wembley ward then remember
her attitude towards the views
of ratepayers.

Capital Act good,
but needs work

Kindness in
Cambridge St
I was driving this morning
along Cambridge Street towards
the city.  Just before St Leonards
Avenue, the car in front of me hit
a cat which rolled into my lane.
I applied my brakes and pulled
off to the left lane and put on my
hazard lights. 
A man stepped from the kerb,
picked up the cat and took it back
to the kerb.
He asked me if I was OK and
when I enquired about the cat,
he said that it was dying.
I would like to acknowledge
the kindness of this stranger and
thank him for his care and help.

Daglish reader and energy-saver Judy Blyth said this Synergy ad
in a local bus-stop gave her a thrill.

They’re switched off in Daglish
I felt an instant surge of
jubilation and pride when I
read the Synergy sign in the
bus stop near our home.
It says 8.1% less energy is
used in Daglish compared
with Perth’s average!
Can we Daglishians shout
this statistic from our solarhot-water-panelled rooftops?
Or better still, from our
photo-voltaic installations
up there?
Or maybe from the energywise household electrical
goods we use, or our determined efforts to switch off
lights, TVs, computers and so
on when they are not in use.
Daglish must be a significant
part of the evolution we must
have if we are to keep global
temperature rise under that
2% rise over pre-industrial
levels that scientists tell us
is necessary if the world is to
avoid catastrophic climate
change.
Should we Daglishians challenge other Perth suburbs

to catch up with us, or even

In which case, we Daglishians

footprint.
Let’s help nudge along this
trend to allocating dirty coalfired power generation to the
dustbin of history.

Education the key to our sustainable future
Re “Not in our backyard:
an infill alternative” (POST,
August 22).
The thoughtful piece by
John Stickle deserves considered reflection.
A recurrent refrain has
become that growing Perth is
paying a price with increasing
congestion.
The pat answer is infill and
living close to work.
Mr Stickle correctly notes
many of the limitations of
such ideas, particularly when
transplanted from different
climatic zones.
He also does well to promote an economic vision for
WA, based not on the limitations of our high-cost labour,
but instead on our penchant
for striving to succeed at the
top with regard to research
and innovation (as well as
sport).
Politically, this will be difficult given the predilection of
our governments to continue

to support, rather than regulate, the land development
and construction industry that
is focused on profits squeezed
out of the maximum development of metropolitan land.
Retraining and educating
entire industries to build
a new sustainable WA are
major challenges for our
entire community.
And underlying all our
growing pains is a simple
fact: we cannot keep growing
our population forever in a
bounded system.
That is the hardest problem
of all – witness the massive
population growths now
contributing to refugee movements on a scale not seen
since World War II.
Our greatest challenge will
be to maintain and improve
standards of living for all in
ways that will not require the
natural resources of three to
five earths to sustain them.
Sadly, this will be most un-

likely to occur peacefully with
our current preoccupations
with unlimited, uncontrolled
growth of both populations
and profits.
Hopefully, we already know
that better education can
provide the answers.

Walk to station
It amazes me that most
weekdays, our little street
opposite the railway station
is full of parked vehicles,
because drivers motor to the
station rather than walk a few
hundred metres.
These people’s health and
fitness lifestyles must be centred on exercising the foot on
the pedal, with their health
sustained by the pie and pizza
shops across the road.

May Gibbs aficionados!
I was happy to read Susan
Hartley’s letter (“Gumnut babies from Claremont?”, POST,
August 22) urging us to celebrate
May Gibbs, a passionate nature
lover and visionary whose inspiration was our Australian bush.
May Gibbs’ work first became
wildly popular 100 years ago
when she illustrated a series
of postcards sent to Australian
soldiers overseas.
They were distinctly
Australian in humour and
introduced her adorable gumnut babies and other bush
characters.
It would be wonderful to
recognise this centenary in
Perth by celebrating the unique
environment May loved.
May grew up in WA and
lived in Harvey when she was
a small girl.
She loved the bush, which
she explored with her brothers.
Moreover, May could draw
from a very young age, influenced by her parents, who were
professionally trained artists
and nurtured her talent. 
The Gibbs family moved to
Butler’s Swamp (Mt Claremont)
when May was 10.
They lived there for a year,
then moved to Murray Street,
Perth, before settling in South
Perth when she was 12.
May lived in South Perth for
many years between travels to
the UK to study art.
For professional reasons, she
made her home in Sydney from
the age of 36.
South Perth council has acquired a wonderful collection
of May’s work, sadly not often

Nedlands mayor Max Hipkins
made some well-thought-out
points in his comments on the
proposed capital city Act (“Think
again, says Nedlands”, POST,
August 15).
I agree that a well-thought-out
capital city Act could be a boon
for Perth as a whole, but the
current plan needs much work.
A publicly-released cost-benefit
analysis would be a good start.
Residents of Subiaco’s South
ward (including me) are being
undemocratically excised from
one council to another, with little evidence it will benefit them,
Perth or WA.
The Barnett government has
continued its habit of failing to
properly consult residents and
businesses before attempting
to push for local government
changes.
If the changes will benefit
the residents and businesses of
South ward, then the government
shouldn’t fear a democratic decision on the Act.
I encourage the Nedlands and
Subiaco councils to continue
to speak up about this issue to
ensure that those affected get
a better outcome than the one
currently proposed.
By continuing to draw attention
to this issue a better result for
all can be achieved.

won the prize for the
best picture book in
the Pre-primary to
Year 2 age-group in
the Make Your Own
Story Book awards.

Nicholas is WA’s only Barbarian
The only West Australian to be
selected for the Australian Schools
Barbarians Rugby team is Year 12
Hale School student Nicholas Jooste.
Nicholas will play New Zealand and
Samoan schools in the national team.
Nicholas has played in the Hale
School rugby team for three seasons,

this year as captain.
He is a prodigious place kicker and is
a strong, quick and powerful attacker,
scoring more than 450 points, including
more than 25 tries, in his three years
in the team.
In each of those years, Hale School
has won the Brother Redmond Cup.

Nick has toured Sydney, Melbourne,
Hong Kong and Canada with the Hale
School rugby team.
He has also played in the state
under-16s, under-17s, the WA schools

was Amelia’s second.
“She wrote the first story just for fun and
then made a storyboard,” Ray said.
“I like art, too, and so I encourage her interest.”
He said Amelia had already started on her
next book and they were looking for a publisher
of books by child authors.
Amelia is a student at Wembley Primary
School and was among several local students
to win prizes in the awards.

Trying to break the overdose cycle

Anyone
for tennis
coaching?

Visiting the loved ones of people who have died from overdose
is one of the hardest parts of the
job for Juliet Middleton, chaplain at Fresh Start Recovery
Program in Subiaco.

By DAVID COHEN
Spend some time with Andre
Vaz Pinto this summer at the
net and you could be a winner.
Andre is the Claremont
Tennis Club coach and wants
to see new faces in the pennant
season, which starts in October.
Andre said people didn’t have
to have played before.
“I would have to have a look
at you,” he said
“But if you can serve and rally
you will have no problem playing pennants.”
Last summer, two Claremont
teams were winners: the 16s
division 3, and the 14s division 5.
Pennants usually has five
or six people on a team, who
play about 10 matches against
other metropolitan teams until
March.
“Last summer we had seven
pennant teams but we’re open
to as many as possible,” Andre
said.
Andre said tennis coaching
wasn’t boring.
“Every lesson is different,”
he said.
“The most rewarding part of
the job is finding the best way
to help the student improve.”
Andre (42) and his wife
and three children live in
Churchlands.
His favourite player is Roger
Federer.
“He is still there after
everything he’s achieved,”

Net gain … Why not have a serve
in Claremont this summer with
Andre Vaz Pinto?
Andre said.
Before Claremont, he coached
at Floreat Park, Hong Kong’s
Pacific Club and in his native
Portugal.
“Claremont is a very friendly
club,” Andre said.
“The Shenton Road roadworks
are a bit of a hindrance, but
our numbers are picking up
steadily.”
Pennants teams must be
registered by the first week in
September.

Fresh Start provides a treatment and recovery program for
drug and alcohol addicts, and
Ms Middleton said many of the
patients had attempted to overdose at some time in their life.
“Some want to die and some
want a break from reality because life is too hard,” she said.
“They may have serious mental health issues or a loved one
might have turned away from
them.”
She said that many did not
want to die but they were making a cry for help or they mixed
up the drug dosage.
Speaking in the lead-up
to International Overdose
Awareness Day on August 31,
Ms Middleton said that parents
of adult children who took their
own lives through overdose were
often hardest hit by the tragedy.
“Families are very broken by
this event,” she said. “I don’t
think the parents are ever the
same again.
“They often blame themselves.”
She said parents had sometimes banned the addict from
the family home because they
were creating havoc, stealing
money or unsafe around young
children.
“There is a balance between
love and discipline but it is very
hard to get it right,” she said.
Fresh Start Recovery Program
helps thousands of people affected by drug and alcohol addiction, providing naltrexone
treatment to block the cravings,
followed by counselling, support

Sensory sensations

Neddies wins the rugby treble
For the first time in the 81year history of the Nedlands
Rugby Union Club, it
achieved a clean sweep in
the premier, under-19 and
reserve grade grand finals.
Nedlands claimed the
premier grade premiership
for the 19th time, with a 39-27
win over Wests Scarborough
Boars at McGillivray Oval
last Sunday.
The premier grade win
completed the historic treble
for the club, with Nedlands
having claimed the under-19
and reserve grade premierships earlier in the day.
The Neddies premier grade
team was playing the WA
club finals for a record 33rd
consecutive year, which is
thought to be an Australian
record across all sporting
codes.

In the first half, Nedlands
premier grade made the most
of opportunities, running in
three tries to two to take a
24-10 lead at the break.
In a thrilling second half,
Neddies, led by No.8 Richard
Naylor in an Etixx Man of
the Match performance,
were able to hold off the
fast-finishing Boars.
In his first year as Nedlands
head coach, former Western
Force player Luke Doherty
said he was proud of his
side’s performance and
thrilled to experience his
first premiership.
“Full credit to Wests, they
made it hard for us all day
and they are really good
rugby side,” he said.
“Fortunately we were just
that little bit better today
and that got us over the line.
“When they started coming

back, the boys stuck to our
game plan and that faith in
our systems is what really
helped us hold them off.
“Some of the older heads
in the team, guys like Joe
Ritchie, Michael Ruru and
Richard Naylor, really stood-

up today.”
Neddies also received the
WA Premier Club Champion
award for a 22nd year and
star forward Jermaine
Ainsley won the most improved premier grade player
award.

Success is
sweet for
under-16s

Three dramas in one act

New award-winning directors Jo Sterkenburg, Grace
Hitchin and Sarah Christiner
will direct three short plays
in a program called Trapped!
presented by Harbour Theatre
in Mosman Park.

The plays range from a mystery to a heart-warming tale of
the human spirit.
Early Frost, directed by Jo,
is a tender, gripping tale of two
sisters with a frightening secret.
The Living Hell, directed by
Grace, deals with the harrowing
tale of seven women held captive in a POW camp in Malaya
during World War II. Flowers

A team of girls who have
been playing tennis together
since the summer of 2010
have won their third title in
three years in the TennisWest
league.
Nedlands Tennis Club took
home a number of titles, but
club coach Warren Vickers said
the girls’ win in the junior girls’
16-and-under, division three,
was extra special.
“The win by that girls’ team is
one of our proudest moments,”
he said. “We remember when
they started playing just to have
some fun.
“Six years later they are the
strongest junior girls at our club.
“Keeping kids in sport into
their teens can be difficult, particularly females, but it’s actually because the girls get along
so well that they keep playing.”
The team is Julia Lawrence,
Caitlin Anderson, Juliette
Steens, Eloise Anderson and
Lucy Jenkins and this winter
season they only just made the
final four teams after having
issues with injury and other
circumstances.
Luckily all players were back
on court and finding form for
the finals.
They beat the second and
first teams in succession to take
the title.
Nedlands Tennis Club is now
taking nominations for the summer league season starting in
term four.
Competitions are available for
players aged seven and upwards,

for Algernon, directed by Sarah,
is a heart-warming tale of the
human spirit.
Each play is between 35 and
45 minutes, making it a truly
entertaining theatrical outing.
Trapped! will be presented
at Camelot, Memorial Hall, in
Mosman Park, on September 11,
12, 16, 18 and 19 at 7.30pm with
matinees on September 13, 19
and 20 at 2pm.
These plays will go on to
represent Harbour Theatre
in Dramafest 2015, the state’s
premier one-act drama festival
for community theatre.

Amnesty call to action
The new Cambridge Action Group of
Amnesty International, which was established in June, is inviting people to join
in its monthly meetings.
The group is a forum for local Amnesty
International supporters to voice their
concerns, defend local, national and international human rights, and meet like-minded
people.
Members share the belief that everyone
has a right to justice, dignity and freedom.
It is one of Amnesty International’s many
action groups, which are all independent of
government, business, religion and political views.
The next meeting is at 6pm on Thursday,
September 3, at Café Luxxe, on the corner
of Selby Street and Herdsman Parade,
Wembley.
Entry is free of charge.

Pink was the order of the day when the ladies from Mosman Park Golf Club played in support of women with breast cancer.

Golfers play a round for a cause
The threat of thunderstorms did not deter
Mosman Park lady golfers
last week as they took part
in the club’s Tee Off for
Breast Cancer Research
event.
Ladies’ president Eva
Price said the players were
later joined by more members for lunch, a bring-and-

buy stall and guest speaker
Diane Smith, who spoke
of her experiences volunteering with breast cancer
patients.
Robyn Stynes, from the
Mosman Park Club’s ladies’
committee, said the club was
proud to be involved in the
event, which was close to
the heart of many members.

“It is great to be able to
enjoy a round of golf with
friends while raising funds
for such a worthwhile
cause,” she said.
“The club and its members
are passionate about supporting research that can
save more lives from breast
cancer.”

The Swanbourne exercise class for seniors has
been running for more
than 30 years and has survived many moves, official
indifference and a fire.

Stalwart Judy Crooke
joined the group in the 1980s
when she retired and said
that at one stage the class
had been denied use of
its then home, Claremont
Town Hall, because it was
deemed unsafe for elderly
people to use.
“The group rose up and
declared war against authority,” she said.
“We used our local MP,
then opposition Leader
Colin Barnett, whose mother had previously been in
our class, to argue our case
in Parliament,” Judy said.
“A force of about seven
stalwarts watched the
debate from the gallery
of Parliament House and
cheered when the proposal
was thrown out.”

Judy says that these days

“We have an excellent class staffed by very
competent and creative
instructors, in a venue with
a sprung floor, perfect for

“But our numbers are

Biology
and famous
rock art
Professor John Pettigrew
will present a biologist’s
perspective on the famous
Bradshaw rock art in the
Kimberley.
He is the guest speaker at
the Kimberley Society meeting at 7.30pm on Wednesday,
September 2, at Dalkeith Hall,
97 Waratah Avenue.
Bradshaw rock art is controversial in all its aspects, not
least because its age cannot be
determined through traditional
techniques.
Biology can fill the gap, using
a variety of methods, such as
identification of dated extinct
fauna in the art, the DNA of
the biofilm, the dating of the
arrival of boabs featured in
the art and the dating of wasp
nests over art.
All the biological methods
confirm the great antiquity
of the art.
Professor Pettigrew is from
the Queensland Brain Institute,
University of Queensland.
The talk is open to all and
entry is $2, free for members.

Take a pre-brekkie
walk for Lifeline
Registrations are now
open for Lifeline WA’s
Out of the Shadows and
Into the Light walk early
on Saturday, September 5.
Walkers will gather in
King’s Park and hundreds
are expected to offer support and hope to those
touched by suicide and
mental illness.
Lifeline WA’s chief executive officer Fiona Kalaf said
the walk was a way to reduce
the stigma associated with
suicide and mental illness.
“With one Western
Australian lost to suicide
daily, events like this are
imperative in raising aware-

ness for Lifeline’s 24/7 crisis
support and suicide prevention services,” Ms Kalaf said.
Lifeline WA’s Out of the
Shadows and Into the Light
walk will run from 5.30 to
7.30am and participants will
be able to have tea, coffee
and muffins at the Botanical
Café afterwards.
“Research shows that most
suicides are preventable,”
Ms Kalaf said.
To register, go to www.
outoftheshadows.org.au/find/
find-a-walk.
For crisis or suicide prevention support, call Lifeline
on 13 11 14 or visit http://

Experts share share tips
Perth Modern School student Radheya Jegatheva has won best animation in an international competition and is
already planning his entry for next year.

Young animator is world class
A film called Don’t Look
Under the Bed has won Perth
Modern School student Radheya
Jegatheva (16) the prize for best
film in the Asiagraph Reallusion
2D Animated Film Competition.
Another of his entries, Finding
Home, won the prized for best
story.
Radheya, who won a total of
$US1300, beat dozens of filmmakers
from around the world.
“Making animated films is a really fun way to be both creative

and technically proficient with
computer software,” Radheya said.
“I loved the scope of Asiagraph;
that you could make the film about
whatever you wanted, and had to
combine effectively a storyline,
graphics, sound effects and dialogue.
“I uploaded the films on
YouTube before entering the
competition and I received a lot
of positive feedback from people
around the world who said they
really enjoyed watching them.
“I would love to become a film

director in the future, and I am
really encouraged to continue
working on my film-making skills.”
Perth Mod hosted workshops
on Crazytalk animator for 2D
and iClone for the 3D earlier in
the year.
Principal Lois Joll said Radheya
was a very clever and imaginative
student.
“Radheya’s animated films are
first class and the school community is delighted he has won
international recognition for his
work,” Ms Joll said.

There will be two expert speakers at the next
meeting of the Australian
Shareholders’ Association.
The association’s monthly
meeting and investor forum,
a way to gain insight into
share investment, are on
Tuesday, September 1, in
the Perth Library Theatre.
Elizabeth Moran of FIIG,
an expert in the fixed income
asset class, will speak at
10.30am.
The investors’ forum from
noon to 1pm will feature
Roger Montgomery, founder,
chairman and chief investment officer of Montgomery
Investment Management.
Roger features fortnightly
on the ABC’s The Business
program as well as Sky

Business and ABC radio, and
writes regular commentary
for newspapers.
Investors have been very
successful chasing the banks
and Telstra for their yield,
but what they have missed
out on they may not recoup.
Are losses ahead or is
there a safe solution to protect the gains and yields that
have been made?
Roger will share his
thoughts and his suggestions
for navigating the future with
some optimism.
Entry to the September 1
meeting will be offered to
non-ASA members free of
charge.

DNA helps fight
against ferals
Australia’s unique fauna
suffer significantly from introduced predators like foxes,
feral cats and wild dogs.
Managing the invasive species
requires understanding of their
biology, but obtaining this basic
information is often difficult
because most of these predators
are elusive and difficult to monitor by conventional techniques
like trapping and observation.
In a talk for the WA Naturalists’
Club, Oliver Berry, a senior research scientist with the CSIRO,
will focus on five recent case
studies that illustrate breakthroughs in understanding the
behaviour of these predators.
He will look at how management programs can be designed
for them, and how to evaluate

such programs.
Significantly, DNA technology has underpinned all these
breakthroughs. Considering
the rapid progress that has
been achieved already, many
more important advances at the
nexus between wildlife ecology
and molecular biology can be
expected.
Dr Berry’s talk, Advances in
the Control of Feral Animals,
will be at 7.30pm on Friday,
September 4, in UWA’s Hew
Roberts Lecture Theatre, on the
corner of Clifton and Gordon
streets, Nedlands.
Visitors are welcome.

Cambridge
Owing to the weather, there were no social bowls last Friday
at Cambridge Bowling
Club.
The winners of
Monday’s 2-4-2 event
were Ken Bradley and
Doug Andrews from
John Dawson and Ian
Cooke.
Ted Delaney and
Mohan Lal came in
third and the plate
was won by Des
Bassett and Warren
Smith.

Dalkeith
Nedlands
It was a week of extraordinary conflict.
Last Tuesday’s
mixed bowls saw wins
to Ken Brooke, David
Ironside (naturally)
and Bruce Fiegert
with +12, followed
by Pete Norris, Anne
Clements and Maria
D’Angelo on +9 and
Ivor Davies, Gwenda
McIntosh, George
Sheldon (welcome
back George) and Bill
Smith with +6.
Thursday “mixed
ups” involved a complex procedure in
which the skippers
had to pick their
teams out of a barrel. Some had to be
forcibly restrained
from trying to push
back the names they
chose.
The winners were
David Hyde, Gwenda
McIntosh and Wendy

bowling
O’Meehan with a massive +21, from Doug
Cross, Ken Brooke
and David Ironside
(naturally) with +13,
followed by John
McCormack, Martin
Adams and Beryl
Barblett with +8.
There was a melancholy atmosphere
over the ladies’ lunch
on Friday as the rain
poured down. It was
not that they couldn’t
play bowls, but because there was no
work being done on
the new green and
hence the view was
“hunk free”.
Saturday was a
quins event. John
McCormack explained
the rules but everyone
nodded off.
The teams had to
choose their own skippers, which resulted
in some violence
and most went to the
wrong rinks. After a
long day the selectors
somehow established
some winners.
It is worth noting
that, in the winning
team, Marg Wells was
about to bowl the last
bowl when they were
5 up. She was advised
to put it in her pocket
but she didn’t have
one so she bowled it
and went down -6.
However, David
Hyde, Marty Adams,
Don Hicks and Marg
Wells were winners,
followed by John
Pole, Doug Cross, Rick

Camins and Carol
Anderson and then
David Broadfoot, Dave
Allen, Lyn Worland
and Pete Norris.
The

Hollywood
Subiaco
In the ladies’ undercover pennant game
against North Beach,
Jenni Lush, Deirdre
Duncan, Petra Evans
and Usha Nigam had
a close game but did
not fire a shot over the
last three ends, going
down 13/18.
On the other
rink, Anne Ormsby,
Alannah Brindley,
Nada Bonny and Betsy
Tapley also had a
close game until their
opposition scored 11
on the last five ends to
run out winners 11/21.
In Thursday’s threebowl pairs, Alan
Brindley and Laurie
Ward had an easy win
in their first game but
were pushed to the
limit by Robbie Blythe
and Peter Evans in the
second.
The teams vying
for the china ware
had similar scores in

their first game, but in
the second, John Hall
and Leigh Fitzpatrick
showed their class to
outbid Bill Chellew
and Colin Graves.
In Saturday’s M&M
triples, Ted Brown,
Ron Wilkie and Peter
Evans got away to an
early start against
Deirdre Duncan, Bob
Porter and Uncle
Arthur, and despite
a fightback by Uncle
Arthur’s team, held
the margin to win
with +7.
The battle for second place between
Robbie Blythe, Laurie
Ward and Ray Preston
and the team of Dot
Leeson, Bill Chellew
and Graeme Gerrans
followed a similar pattern, with the Preston
team hanging in to win
with +5.
The close game was
between John Duncan,
Anne Ormsby and
John Hall and the
triple of Ray Fells,
Alan Brindley and
Rod Hickling.
A three on the last
end to the Hickling
team still left them
one short of the Hall
team.
Three bowlers
played scroungers
on Sunday morning.
After taking handicaps into account,
it turned out to be a
close game between
Glen Morey and Vern
Jones. The final scores
were Glen 21, Vern
20 and Alan Brindley
10, making Glen the
King Scrounger for
the week.

Mosman

Some new faces were
elected to the committee at the Mosman Park
club’s AGM on Sunday.
There was only one
day of social bowls last
week, with rain closing
the greens on Saturday.
It was so cold last
Wednesday that only
a few brave souls
ventured forth to play.
The winners were
Sue Epis and Patrick
James, with runners-up
Merv Leg, Peter Smyth
and Ian Lilly.
The ladies had
a hard match last
Tuesday at Innaloo,
but hoped to turn the
tables this week.
Members are reminded to have
their names in by
12.30pm to play on
both Wednesdays and

TIMEOUT
The Dark Lord
of the dance
SARAH McNEILL

Performers who stay in the
same stage show for years, can
find the challenges of repetition
and spontaneity far outweigh the
benefits of security and travel.
But dancer Tom Cunningham
has no inclination to stop,
cheerfully saying his 17 years
with Michael Flatley’s Lord of
the Dance have “been a heck of
a ride!”
Tom, an Irishman, joined Lord
of the Dance in 1997 when he was
18. Two years ago he married the
show’s violinist, Giada Costenaro
Cunningham. She has been with
the show for eight years, having
seen it when she was 14 and
determined that that was to be her
job.
Tom started Irish dancing

at the age of five, eventually
competing in the World
Championships.
“Dancing with Michael Flatley
was something I always wanted
to do,” he said. “It is the pinnacle
if Irish dancing.”
In the show’s simple premise
of good versus evil based on
old Irish folklore, Tom plays
the Dark Lord, a role he’s been
developing for himself over the
past two years.
“A bad mood makes my job just
a little bit easier,” he grinned.
“And everyone loves a bad boy.”
Tom, like many professional
sportsman, said the decades of
Irish dancing were taking a toll
on his knee and ankle joints –
“it’s off the stage and straight
into an ice bath for me” – so
he has already got a degree in
business studies and hopes to
choreograph more for Flatley’s
shows.
Michael Flatley brought Irish
dance into the global spotlight
more than 21 years ago with
Riverdance, turning the stiffarmed country dance style into
a spectacular, edgy form on a
grand theatrical scale.
He created Lord of the Dance
in 1996 and it has now become
a global brand, entertaining
more than 60million people in 68
countries.
Tom has stayed with the
company for almost two decades
because, unlike scripted plays or
musicals, the show is constantly
changing.

“Michael has always
been keen to break boundaries and always wants to
keep it fresh and modern,”
Tom said.
“For this new show, we
went back into the studio,
ripped the show apart, and
started again.”
He said that while they
kept some of the signature moves, Lord of the
Dance: Dangerous Games
had incorporated new 3D
technology, including holographs and projections,
dancing robots, world
champion acrobats, and 34
of the greatest Irish dancers in the world.

It also has a new score
composed by Gerard Fahy,
with new choreography
and new costumes.
Tom said: “It has always
been Michael’s ‘baby’ and
he’s very much the driving
force behind the show, but
he’s very keen for everyone to really invest in their
roles and take ownership of
the work.
“It really inspires everyone and keeps us together

people we are. Losing or
suppressing memories or
remembering things that
hurt, shape us, shift us and
alter us.
In screen writer Mark
Walsh’s first play, he
explores the fragility and
unreliability of one woman’s disturbing memories.
Standing on the shore
of dark and foreboding
waters, she comes to herself in three different ages:
the older woman (Claire
Munday), who has determinedly forgotten all but
one benign memory of a
“white clime”; the young,
vigorous version (Tessa
Carmody, excellent), who
prompts, urges and teases
out early memories, and
her 20something self (Jo
Morris), who remembers
more than she wants to
and for whom memories
are something to fear.
Well directed by Mikala
Westall, this is an intriguing show, though its
mysterious gothic-horror
element of keeping strange
water creatures at bay – a
metaphor perhaps for the
worst and most dangerous
memories? – obscures and
confuses what might otherwise be a fascinating and
engaging subject.
The success of this play
lies in the three strong and
committed performances

has transformed the small
studio space.
Against a rugged cliffface of black plastic, the
shoreline is filled with
frothy foam, a scene at
once both childlike and
disturbing for what is hidden beneath.
The stars of this show
are lighting designer
Chris Donnelly and sound
designer Will Slade.
The lighting in this small
space is pin-point accurate and effective and the
stormy soundscape, which
backdrops the entire show,
is wonderfully evocative
and disturbing.
It is a complex, mysterious piece that plays on
the memory long after the
storm of memories has dissipated.

Big Nic Nat
into the finals
SARAH McNEILL

Jerome Davenport does
not much like football, but he
was keen to paint West Coast
Eagles player Nic Naitanui.
They first met when Nic
wanted to buy a painting
from Jerome, who is based
in Subiaco. Instead Jerome,
who specialises in large-scale
aerosol murals, offered to paint
a mural on Nic’s games room
wall.
“He’s an outstanding person
in the community,” Jerome
said. “It was more his personal
aura that drew me to paint him
than his football profile.”
And yet, Jerome has caught
the footballer mid-game, where
sweat and water pour down
his face and his eyes are filled
with the emotion and pain of
the moment. Nic loved the
portrait, painted with aerosol
and finely-detailed airbrush,
and had planned to buy it for
his mum, Atetha, who died
suddenly earlier this month.
Jerome said he planned to

It was more
his personal
aura that
drew me to
paint him

ask Nic if he could dedicate
the portrait to Atetha when it
hangs as a finalist in the Black
Swan Portrait Awards.
It is the first portrait
Jerome has submitted to art
competitions, firstly to the
Archibald Prize – it didn’t
get picked as a finalist – and
then the Black Swan Prize for
Portraiture.
Nic’s portrait is one of
40 finalists in the national
competition.
A record number of entries
was receive this year to vie for
the $50,000 prize. Of the 40
finalists, 13 are from WA.

is another first-time finalist with
a self-portrait. Tom is an artist
who is constantly pushing the
boundaries, refusing to lock
himself into a style of genre.
“Pushing boundaries can be
addictive and scary,” Tom said.
He captured himself in front
of his easel with a background
of themes, ideas and styles
whirling around his head.
Portraits in the finals include
Janet Holmes a Court painted
by Rachel Coad, WA artist
Abdul Abdullah by Marcus
Callum, and actors Noah
Taylor by Paul Ryan, Kerry
Armstrong by Vicki Sullivan
and Christine Shaw by Angela
Parragi.
The finalists of the Black
Swan Prize of Portraiture
go on display at Linton and
Kay Gallery, 137 St George’s
Terrace, from September 24 to
October 4. The winner will be
announced on October 1.
Salon des Refusés, an
alternative selection of work
that didn’t quite make the top

40, will be shown prior to the
main exhibition at Brookfield
Place, 125 St George’s Terrace,
from Monday, September
14, to Friday, October 2

Next stop London for Alexandra
London Calling launches
a new spring series
of concerts at UWA’s
St George’s College
and farewells violinist
Alexandra Isted, a veteran
of the concerts.
Alexandra, a UWA
graduate and young WA

Symphony Orchestra
member, is about to
embark on a London
adventure to study at the
Royal College of Music.
Her last concert is at 7pm
on Sunday, August 30, in
the college dining hall.
Alexandra has performed

several times at St George’s,
including the Brahms Piano
Trio, Tzigana, Bach and the
Lark Ascending in 2013,
and as the soloist of The
Butterfly Lovers’ violin
concerto last year.
This time Alexandra
will be joined by a host of

friends, including college

Do you recognise
this spot?
When German artist
Elise Blumann arrived
in Perth in 1938 she was
immediately struck by the
local landscape and the
piercing brightness of the
Australian light.
From her new home
in Nedlands, Blumann
experienced a flourishing
of creative activity,
brilliantly applying aspects
of a modernist artistic style
to the WA landscape.
Like much of Blumann’s
work, On the Swan,
Nedlands, depicts real trees
in a real setting – and staff
at Lawrence Wilson Art
Gallery think they’re still
there.
If you recognise the
place and trees this
work is based on, visit

lwgallery.uwa.edu.au/
swansearch and send the
gallery your answer with
a brief explanation (or,
better yet, a photo). The
first person to get through
with an answer and a
convincing argument
will win a signed copy
of exhibition curator
Sally Quin’s new book,
Bauhaus on the Swan,
and a Lawrence Wilson
Art Gallery prize pack
valued at over $100.
The exhibition, Elise
Blumann: An émigré
artist in Western
Australia, 1938 – 1948, is
showing at the Lawrence
Wilson Art Gallery until
September 19. Entry is
free and opening hours
are Tuesday to Saturday,

classic, muscle, sports

and modified vehicles.
The money raised goes to

and this year Ilona said
they decided to get out of
their comfort zone with

raised around $15,000.
This year they have
organised a comedy night.
“I like the idea of making
people laugh, sending a
message and raising money,
all at the same time,” said
Ilona, a senior manager
with a mining company.
She had been to the
Big Hoo Haa improvised
comedy nights at Lazy
Susan’s Comedy Club in
the Brisbane Hotel and so
contacted Sam Longley.
Within a week, six Big
Hoo Haa comedians and
five others were on board
for Laugh Out Loud for
Charity.
Along with the Hoo
Haa group are comedians
James De Leo, Janelle
Koenig, Luke Bolland,
Werzel and Sian Choyce.
All the comedians are

donating their time and

The Ockendens have
booked UWA’s Octagon

Exploring
the Duxbury
aesthetic

CATHERINE MAZZA

Perth designer, Imogen
Duxbury combines her
flair and artistic skill to
create limited-edition
textiles under her new
label, Duxbury.
After graduating
from Curtin University
in fashion and textile
design in 2012, Imogen
was accepted into the
WA-Hyogo Banshu Textile
Exchange.
The prestigious
program gives one WA
designer the opportunity
to gain experience in the
internationally recognised
textile industry in Hyogo,
Japan.
Imogen then worked as a
freelance designer for local
label Salasai, designing
one-off textiles.
These experiences
inspired the Duxbury
aesthetic.
“I discovered a love
of texture, surfaces and
collage, which have
become the foundation
of my creative process,”
Imogen said.
For her debut autumn
winter collection, Imogen
created two digital designs
that are printed on silk
crepe de chine scarves.
Titled Dark Romance,
the prints contrast soft
florals with dark colours
and skulls.
“I draw on imagery from
the natural and man-made

worlds, exploring their
relationship,” Imogen said.
The scarves are pieces
of art that would look at
equally at home draped
across a body or framed on
a wall.
Imogen said: “When I
start a print, I usually have
an element that I want to
be the feature – a colour,
an object or a feeling – and
I create a composite of
images to make a landscape
around that element.”
Larger than standard
scarves, Duxbury pieces
could be worn as clothing
and Imogen releases only
10 of each design.
She admits clothing is
not her first priority.
“The label will be
focused on anything that
promotes textiles, so I
actually plan to expand
into home wares, bedding
and linen,” she said.
Duxbury pieces can be
bought at www.duxbury.
myshopify.com or Nell’s

in Mosman Park.

Staff take Mosmans to the top
■ Jamie Fisher says Mosmans’ great location helps its success in being rated the best restaurant in WA.

Mosmans Restaurant
managing director Jamie
Fisher was completely
taken by surprise to win
Restaurant of the Year.
He said he knew that
Mosmans was a finalist
in three categories for the
annual Restaurant and
Catering Australia (RCA)
Awards, which were held on
Monday night at the Perth
Convention Centre, but he
was shocked and delighted
at taking out the top award.
Mosmans, perched on
the river in Mosman Park,
was nominated for best
apprentice for Morgan
Keyte, best wedding
venue, and best seafood
restaurant, which it won.
Mosmans signature
seafood dish for two was
a winner – a two-course
platter of hot and cold
seafood from shellfish to
cured to fresh fillets.
Jamie attributed the top
award to “consistency”.
“We have a great team
who have been with us a

long time,” he said.
“Great service demands
a level of detail that comes
with maturity. It’s all about
the things that happen
around a diner without
them noticing.
“My staff are really good
at ‘reading’ tables and
knowing what they might
want.”
Stewart White, chair
of the awards judges,
confirmed this.
“Knowing your
customer and exceeding
their expectations is
pivotal to success,” he said.
“Businesses need to serve
great food, to evolve and
innovate, and invest in
their staff.”
Subiaco French
restaurant Bistro Des
Artistes, which won the
award for best European
restaurant, was nominated
with two other locals,
Bistro Felix in Subiaco and
Prego in Floreat.
Meeka in Subiaco won
the speciality category

and Lo Zucchero in City
Beach won best family
dining. Co-Op Dining in
East Perth pipped Shenton
Park’s Petite Mort in the
fine dining category.
Edosei Japanese in Perth
won best new restaurant

2014 Chateau de la Placeliere,
Muscadet Sevre et Maine Sur Lie,
Loire Valley, France
Muscadet, a dry white wine
from south east of Nantes,
is made from the melon de
bourgogne grape. Usually
clean and simple, modern
interpretations of this wine
are textural, spiced and
delicate. Sur Lie (on lees)
means it’s a bit more complex
and textural. This is such a
pretty little wine – white citrus
blossom, jasmine, crunchy
green apple, touches of
grilled orange zest, brine and
soft spice. Clean, fresh and
lyrical.
■ $21. 93 points.
2013 Expresion de Pazo do Mar,
Albarino,
D.O. Ribeiro, Spain
Albarino is a white grape
from Spain that has been
experiencing its time in
the sun in the past couple
of years, especially in the
Australian market.
It is a highly aromatic variety,
high in acid and often lighter
in alcohol (11 to 12%ABV),
so it’s no surprise that
Australians have latched on.
Styles can vary from fresh
and unoaked, right through
to complex examples, with
older oak
and some lees work.

This one
has crunchy
green apple,
ripe summer
apricots,
spicy white
pepper, white
peach and a
really pretty
minerality
lacing its
way through the bright fruit
characters. Tight, fresh and
lithe, this is quite literally
gorgeous. Mottled shade,
a warm breeze and fresh
seafood are all coming to
mind.
■ $21.45. 92 points.
2014 Pierre Maudry Sancerre
“Tradition”,
Loire Valley, France
Sancerre is a region in the
eastern part of the Loire
Valley and produces 80%
sauvignon blanc, and 20%
pinot noir. It is a small area
on the opposite bank of the
river to Pouilly Fume (100%
sauvignon blanc).
This wine has intense lemon
zest, white peach, limestone
minerality, brine and white
pepper. There are hints of
clove and juniper in the
background … a really
interesting nose. The palate
is complex and delicate with
a great structure. Crunchy
acidity and the concentration
of flavours on the palate
go right through into the
long finish. It was nice to
be reminded of a different
flavour profile in sauvignon
blanc – spiced and serious.

■ father’sday

Times are a-changing for fathers
The late Cilla Black’s
Liverpool Lullaby summed
up the role of fathers in the
mid 20th century:
“When he hears the
things that you did, You’ll
get a belt from yer dad.”
Dad went to work and
he earned the income. He
left for work early, came
home just in time to kiss
the freshly-bathed children
goodnight, and didn’t
have much to do with
them unless it was as the
disciplinarian.
Even Father’s Day was
considered merely an
opportunistic day hitching
its commercial wagon to
the already successful and
well-established Mother’s
Day.
But the 21st century
father is a whole new
breed. And in 2013, Cilla
said the original song was
now “inappropriate” and
she changed the line of her
song to “You’ll get told off
by yer dad”.
Australian author,

psychologist and parent
educator Steve Biddulph
is largely credited with a
change in attitude with his
1997 “bible”, Raising Boys.
That remote, powerful
father figure was brought
into sharp focus as
someone vital to raising
happy, healthy, wellbalanced children. And
men took the message on
board.
It was more than OK
to want from parenthood
more than they had
experienced from their
own remote fathers. They
wanted to be a part of
raising and a family – and
women, by and large, have
been happy to hand over
the reins.
On Father’s Day,
Biddulph still spruiks the
message: “Dads are crucial
to a healthy society. Dads
need to know that their job
is vital, that there are some
things that only dads can
do.”
If there are some things

that only a father can do,
an increasing number of
fathers have learnt that
there are plenty of ways
they can successfully juggle
work/life balances in much
the same way as mothers.
The world’s a different
place. The National Centre
for Social and Economic
Modelling reported last
October that households
with female primary
breadwinners have
increased from 385,000 to
more than 521,000 over
the past decade and a Roy
Morgan poll of 50,000
households commissioned
by the National Australia
Bank found 39.5% of
women nominated as the
main breadwinner, up from
28.8% in 2008.
It’s no longer a strange
sight to see dads dropping
off and picking up from
school, organising play
dates and helping out in the
canteen or on sports days.
Will the shift be
complete when dad

dedicated to educating girls
in Africa.
All the proceeds from

Sierra Leone.
Anna said that as new
ambassadors for the
charity, she and Jean

hoped to raise $3000 by
the end of the year to help
send girls in Sierra Leone
back to school.
During the decadelong civil war in Sierra
Leone, more than 1200
schools were burnt to the
ground. One Girl aims
to help rebuild schools

and to educate girls, who
are usually overlooked if
parents have any money to
send a child to school.
“People often think of
yoga as a way to get fit, get
healthy, get happy,” Jean
said.
“But yoga is also about
community, compassion
and giving back.”
The yoga classes start
on Saturday, September 5,
and to celebrate Father’s
Day the next day, this
45-minute class will be free
for all dads.
The cost of the class is
by donation. Along with
your shopping baskets,

Stars can’t make the chemistry work
She’s Funny That Way
(M)

✪✪✪

REVIEW: PIER LEACH

The screwball romantic
comedy, once a Hollywood
mainstay, is a genre that’s
barely attempted these days.
So when veteran director
and former movie critic Peter
Bogdanovich decided to make
She’s Funny That Way from
a script he wrote 15 years ago
with ex-wife Louise Stratten,
he must have had half of
Hollywood beating down the
door for parts. After all, he
made a great homage to the

genre in 1972’s What’s Up,
Doc?
But despite a star-studded
rotation of cameos, Wes
Anderson and Noah Baumbach
as executive producers,
and an ensemble of some of
Hollywood’s favourite comic
actors – including Jennifer
Aniston, Owen Wilson,
Kathryn Hahn and Rhys Ifans

It is a tall tale. Izzy, as she

When her client Arnold

Of course, Arnold doesn’t

next day at a Broadway audition opposite his wife, Delta

expect the chaotic comic tangle
of romantic liaisons – involving his wife, lead actor (Ifans),
playwright (Will Forte), Izzy’s
therapist (Aniston), and a slew
of other call girl “squirrels” –

“[Woody] Allen’s dialogue is witty,
his plotting zings along with forward
momentum in all the right places,
and his observation of elastic moral
principles in flux is both mischievous
and unsettling, yielding a tasty
final-act Hitchcockian twist,” says
The Hollywood Reporter. But The
Guardian UK disagrees, calling
it “another of the amiable but
forgettable and underpowered jeux
d’esprit that [Allen] produces with an
almost somnambulist consistency and

“The inviting, yet ultimately tootame dramedy about a hard-bitten

And home sweet ... egg

A fake “handwritten” note attracted
120 comments when it was posted on
social media site Reddit.

Take note ... it’s not real
handwriting
Crafty real estate agents in
Hurstville, Sydney, have caused
some minor consternation over fake
“handwritten” notes delivered en
masse to potential sellers. After a
resident received the flyer from HT
Wills & Co. Hurstville, he posted a
photo to social media site Reddit.
Printed on lined paper in a font
designed to look like handwriting,
the note even included ring binder
holes at the top, to appear as if
it had been torn from a notepad.
The agent responsible, Wei Xiang,
told Domain that the notes were
a common technique and that he
doorknocked every house in the
street. “For the people who weren’t
home, I left a note,” he said.

You probably think of eggs as
more of a breakfast staple than
an architectural one. But Slovakiabased Nice Architects is asking you
to embrace the humble egg shape,
in all its energy-efficient glory. The
firm has unveiled the prototype for
its Ecocapsule micro-shelter, which
it hopes to start shipping in early
2016. Dubbed the dwelling with the
spirit of freedom, it is designed to
be self-sufficient, its curved shape
employed to maximise rainwater
and dew collection, and its builtin solar panels and silent wind
turbine used to generate power.
Nice Architects says the 1500kg
tiny house will fit neatly inside a
standard shipping container and
can easily be shipped, airlifted or
towed to almost any off-grid location
worldwide – making it ideal for
research scientists and adventureseekers alike.

■ This egg-shaped home packs all you could need into less than 10sq.m of
living space, and is designed for explorers who want to “get off the grid”.
“The property needs to be prepared
as a product, marketed as a product
and priced as a product. Let the
buyers get emotionally involved, as
it will be their new home.”

Far from a hole
Jackson Hole, Wyoming, might
seem like a simple frontier town in
the middle of nowhere, but it is also
the perennial home of America’s
financial elite. Originally attracted
by its trout fishing, members of the
US Federal Reserve Bank have
held an annual economic policy
symposium in the town since 1982.
In short, it’s summer camp for
bankers. So it’s not that surprising
to find a luxury home like this
contemporary prefab (see picture)
among the barns and paddock
fences. Designed by prolific modern
home designer Chris Pardo, the
house uses timber and stone to
complement its idyllic setting, while
tall windows allow great views.

Home sweet product
Here’s some advice if you’ve
put your home on the market:
Don’t fall into the trap of getting
too emotionally involved. Geoff
Baldwin, managing director of RE/
MAX WA, said getting emotionally
involved in the sale of the home was
one of the biggest challenges sellers
faced when putting their houses on
the market. “Once you decide to sell
your house, it’s no longer a home,
but a product,” Mr Baldwin said.

but there are still plenty of places
around Australia attracting premium
rents. The median rent tops $1000
a week in more than 72 Australian
suburbs and towns – and even
clears $2000 in three, according
to RP Data. Peppermint Grove was
the only WA suburb to make the top
category at $2000 per week, while
Port Hedland clocked in at $1400 –
still way above the $1200 median in
Toorak, Melbourne. Tamarama, a
beachside suburb of Sydney, is the
most expensive place to rent in the
country, with a median of $2650.

sits between barns and paddocks in
Jackson Hole, Wyoming, a town known
as “summer camp for bankers”.

Top tips for selling in a tight market

the property investment ladder,
but for existing home owners,
it can mean employing some
Z\YLÄYL[LJOUPX\LZHUK[PWZ
push your property ahead of its
competitors.
Abel McGrath property
consultant, Adam Marchant,
says in a competitive market,
attention to detail is more
important than ever when it
comes to marketing and selling
your most valuable asset.
Here are Adam’s top ten tips for
market success:
• Invite the neighbours – your
neighbours are a database
in themselves. Invite them in
for a VIP twilight viewing so
that they can spread the word
among the local community
and beyond.
• Spend time home staging
inside and out – Take time out

to freshen up the exterior of
`V\YOVTLÄYZ[PTWYLZZPVUZ
count for everything. Add
some new furniture, you
can hire if you have to, a
coat of paint and set up a
great outdoor space your
prospective buyers can just
imagine settling into.
‹@V\YÄYZ[VќLYJV\SKIL`V\Y
best – In most cases, Adam
says, this is often the case.
Time on the market doesn’t
always mean more money,
just more cleaning.
• Research your competition
– Trawl the internet looking
for homes in your area, go to
home opens and look at why
some properties are snapped
up early and others are
languishing.
• De-clutter and de-personalize
– Have a garage sale, get
a storage facility, whatever
it takes, the less clutter the
more spacious your home will
appear.
• Take your agent’s advice
– your agent is your local
expert and wants the highest
price for you. If he or she

recommends a readjustment
based on market feedback,
Adam’s advice is to listen.
• Be ahead of the game in an
auction – make sure you have
termite inspection/building
report/minor repairs and bank
valuations in place as well as
a handy list of local amenities
such as schools, shops,
parks, restaurants and public
transport facilities.
• Be prepared to include
personal items to get the
deal over the line – often
potential buyers will ask if a
MYPKNLKPZO^HZOLYIIXNVLZ
with the house. If it’s not an
irreplaceable family heirloom,
it may give the buyer added
incentive to sign on the dotted
line.
• Give your agent access – if
you really want to sell, don’t
close your home according
to the weather. If people are
interested and excited, they’ll
turn up regardless of the
weather. Adam recently had
40 people turn up to a home
open and it was pouring with
rain.

• Be aware of bidding wars –
An appropriately managed
listing can generate a
bidding war even if it isn’t

hen the owners first
bought this beachside property, the old
brick-and-tile number was
a far cry from the stylish,
near-new home the block
sports today.
But they knew they
were sitting on 1148sq.m
of prime real estate, and
that they’d found the ideal
spot to settle down with
their young family.
“We purchased the site
a long time ago, so we were
able to get a feel for its
strengths before we built,”
the owners said.
“Living here, you’re
fortunate because the view
can never be built out.”
That view – of the horizon dotted with ships – can
be enjoyed from both the
ground-floor children’s
wing and the first-floor
parents’ retreat, thanks to
a steep elevation.
“We’re spoilt in that

respect,” the owners said.
But that’s not all they’re
spoilt for.
The owners worked
closely with Webb &

a relaxed, beachy vibe
that doesn’t compromise
on sophistication.
From the entry, you can
see straight through the
breezy open-plan living
area to the sparkling pool,
giving the impression of a
holiday resort – only much
more homely.
There are outdoor showers, plenty of lawn for the
kids to play on and enough
room alongside the huge
garage to store the boat.
“The best part is being
able to be home and

within minutes,” one of
the owners said.

RESULTS

U

ncertainty in global
markets may have
stalled what should have
been a busy auction weekend last week, with western
suburb agents going zero
from five on the auction
block.
Big crowds failed to come
up with the goods at two
of LJ Hooker agent Vivien
Yap’s listings, which were
both passed in with bids.
Two bidders from a
crowd of more than 70
competed but didn’t meet
the reserve set for 13 Styne
Road in City Beach. The
slightly dated but valuable
four-bedroom home on an
819sq.m block is just a fiveminute walk from the beach.
Ms Yap says she has received three offers since and
hopes to sell within a week.
It was a similar story
at 26 Kilkenny Road in
Floreat, a six-bedroom contemporary mansion with
a lavish interior. Around
50 groups inspected the

890sq.m property, Ms Yap,
said, but there had been
only one bidder and it
had been passed in for an
undisclosed price.
Meanwhile, an Overman
and Zuideveld designed
home at 10 Taworri Way in
City Beach was passed in
at $4.5million with no bids,
in front of a crowd of about
30 people.
The four-bedroom home
with panoramic ocean
views is listed by Gary Dye,

the owners are now listing
the property for a “very

The malaise was felt
just as strongly in Subiaco,
where two properties
failed to sell. A renovated
four-bedroom cottage at
168 Townshend Road was
passed in by selling agent
Jack Michael, of Abel
McGrath.
Over in Subi Centro, a

at 7 Laurino Terrace did
not sell at auction and is
now offered at $949,000 by
Trevor Neil, of Ray White

Fence to go
• From page 9

Ms Johnson said the council had not
set out to create a sanctuary but to assist
the regeneration of the bush.
“There are no other fences except for
the safety fence along the boundary of
the cliff face – all other areas of bush
plantings, established and new, are
unfenced and they appear to be in good
condition,” she said.
“Recent large islands of new plantings instigated by the volunteers which
are part of the dog leash-free park are
all unfenced. I walked in Bold Park on
Sunday and I saw no fences there either.
“However, in an attempt to find some
middle ground here and out of respect
for the differing views, I propose an
amendment for a staged removal and
a review which will satisfy, in part, the
original commitment we made with the
community, and also show consideration
of the volunteers’ views.”
Her motion was passed 4-3, with Mr
Norris, deputy mayor Ian Flack and
South ward councillor Wesley Davies
voting against it, preventing Mr Norris
from using his casting vote.

Honoured … Principal Kim Kiepe and Joy Shepherd outside the newly named centre.
St Hilda’s council named the on June 27, 2012.
Mrs Shepherd said she was
performing arts centre in her
privileged to have her name
honour.
Announcing the decision, associated it.
“It sits at the heart of St
council chairperson Deidre
Willmott said the centre had Hilda’s literally and figurabeen a hub for assemblies, tively, given the importance
In honour of her service to services, award presentations of the arts in making meaning
St Hilda’s and her passion and had been used by com- of our human experience,”
for the performing arts, the munity groups since it opened she said.

The opening night of
St Hilda’s recent school
production, Seussical the
Musical, was also a special
occasion for immediate pastprincipal Joy Shepherd. 

Developer at odds over security
• From page 1

a profit-making developer to
provide housing to defence
families.
DHA staff invited Sayer
Street residents to a meeting
at the Ocean Beach Hotel on
Tuesday. Also attending were
Nedlands mayor Max Hipkins
and two councillors.
The residents and the council oppose the plan to sell
blocks for private housing on
the Melon Hill nature reserve
that forms part of the green
corridor to the sea.
DHA plans to flatten the 153
houses in Seaward Village,
built in the 1990s, and use the
profit from selling a quarter of
the 22ha site for a private new
housing estate to build 168
new homes for SAS personnel.
“Refurbishment doesn’t
provide us any revenue,” John
Dietz, DHA’s general manager, property provisioning,
told the OBH meeting.
DHA is listed as one of
Australia’s biggest property
developers.
DHA told the residents
there were no security risks
to stop the development.
Mr Dietz said the security
review had been completed.
“We have been briefed. I
understand there are no risks
that review has uncovered
that would halt the development,” he told the meeting.
The residents are also
worried about Sayer Street

becoming a busy access to
the civilian and army development sites, even though it
has somehow been extended
across an A-class reserve.
DHA staff told residents
they had considered three
options for a second access
road to Seaward Village.
James Wallace, DHA’s
regional development manager, said council planners
had rejected a route past the
bridge club to Odern Crescent
and Defence rejected an
open road through Campbell
Barracks.
“The other option is to cut
through the side of Melon Hill
and connect with Wood Street.”
Also discussed was a civil-

ian road looping from Melon
Hill around the east of a relocated Seaward Village to
connect with the present main
access to Seaward Village,
Seaward Avenue.
This week WA Planning
Minister John Day had asked
Nedlands council for a briefing even though the council
has been cut out of the procedure, Mr Hipkins said.
The WA Planning
Commission met to make
a recommendation to Mr
Day over handling the plan
under the recently introduced Improvement Plan
procedure, which by-passes
input from local councils and
communities.

Hastie my pick, says Bishop
• From page 1

Asked if nobody in the
Canning Liberal Party branch
was good enough, she said:
“The people of the Canning
division pre-selected him,
but I did speak to the Prime
Minister about him in advance to say that we had an
outstanding candidate.”
Ms Bishop spent this week
campaigning and door-knocking alongside Mr Hastie in the
Canning electorate.
Mr Hastie made headlines
recently when it was revealed
he had commanded troops
who had been investigated

for removing the hands of
dead Taliban fighters.
“He wasn’t physically
present at the incident, he
didn’t give any direction or
command to do it, and when
he heard about it he put it up
the chain of command for an
investigation,” Ms Bishop said.
“The soldiers believed they
were doing what defence had
ordered them to – not Andrew
Hastie.
“And that is, you have to
prove that you have taken
out a Taliban fighter, not a
civilian. You’ve got to be able
to identify them.”

Larrikin Angel
• From page 7

She came to the attention of the Pope when she
clashed with the Catholic
Church for criticising the
Vatican’s stance on abortion,
homosexuality and contraception and for supporting
the ordination of women as
priests.
She was involved in the
Aboriginal rights movement
and the anti-uranium mining lobby.
He said Sister Veronica
persuaded the ABC, of which
she was a board member, to
air a program about deaths
in custody.
A biography of her was
titled Larrikin Angel.

“We bought it in 1973. It’s

Now the Bartletts sit out
the back in the sun by their
fruit trees and have lunch at
Shine Community Services in
Cottesloe.
Mr Bartlett said he missed
his father.
He met Joan while she was
a WAAF stationed in Haifa
and Cairo.
He was awarded a
Distinguished Service Order
and the US Legion of Merit.
He has represented
Australia before at Battle of
Britain Sunday, because the
last Australian pilot from the
conflict died in 2005.
Wartime British prime
minister Winston Churchill
said of Battle of Britain fighter
pilots: “Never in the field of
human conflict was so much
owed by so many to so few.”
In June 1940, France had
surrendered to the Germans,
while Russia and the US had
not yet joined the war against
Germany. Britain led the fight
against Hitler’s Germany.
On September 15 1940, RAF
Fighter Command claimed
victory over the Luftwaffe
after a day of bombing raids
ended in heavy losses for
Germany.
It is widely believed that
had the RAF – outnumbered
four to one – failed to beat
them off, the Germans would
easily have been able to
invade the UK.
Of the RAF fighter pilots,
515 were killed.
Shortly after the RAF
claimed victory, Hitler
postponed and then cancelled
plans to invade Britain,
turning his attention to
invading Russia.

“They sit there like vultures
on a barbed-wire fence waiting for you to go a minute
over,” he said.
He said a 2014 council letter
to Wilson proposed an extension of a former management
agreement until the Pavilion
Market site was redeveloped
with a 16-storey complex, or
an eight-storey office building at 1 Seddon Street, which
faces it.
Wilson was originally given
control of the carpark in 2001
but that deal lapsed eight
years ago and was revived by
council staff in August 2014.
“If those properties are not
developed we’ve entered into
an agreement with Wilson
that has no ending,” Mr Burns
said.
“Let’s talk about Wilson
− we are talking about an
organisation that by any definition is a psychopath.
“They’ve been accused of
stealing information from
the government, spying on a
Senator, all this sort of stuff.
They are a textbook example

of what you would call a psychopath.”
When Mr Burns was cautioned by the acting mayor,
councillor Scott Arbuckle, he
said: “I’ll stop saying Wilson
is a corporate psychopath.
“My point is, does Subiaco,
and our community, want to
be in business with these
people?”
Councillor Lynley Hewett
said it had been widely publicised that car owners could
choose not to pay fines from
Wilson Parking but that the
company could take action if
they used a Wilson carparks
in the future.
Wilson Carparks uses number plate recognition systems
and technology to keep track
of customers using their
carparks.
Mr Rowe said Wilson
Parking was damaging the
opinion of the average person
about parking in Subiaco.
“I would be all for pulling
out of this [agreement] and I
would be all for going down
to Bunnings and getting a
whole swag of yellow paint

and differentiating ourselves
by marking out new bays,”
he said.
Councillor Julie Matheson
agreed.
“The quicker we can dissociate ourselves from the
bullying tactics the better off
we are going to be,” she said.
Councillor Stephanie
Stroud said she had no
problem with the motion but
warned it would not get rid
of Wilson.
“They are all over town,”
she said. “They have hijacked
our town parking, unfortunately. I wish we did have
a better relationship with
them.”
Ms Stroud said that even
when Station Street market
customers were parking
bumper to bumper around
the area, a nearby Wilson
carpark off Roberts Road was
practically empty.
“I don’t understand Wilson
policy,” she said.
Mr Burns said: “Let’s get on

board and find out how we can
get out of it. We don’t want to
do business with them.
“I promise you, if we tell
them loudly, private enterprise, other councils, will
follow.”
Councillors will consider
a report into the issue in
September.
Wilson Parking was contacted for comment.
In the wake of the council
decision, Wilson Parking and
Subiaco council will meet
next week to discuss the
situation.
Meanwhile, the council has
said it will not use similar
parking systems to Wilson
Parking.
On Tuesday night, councillors approved the purchase
of 10 new ticket machines,
that could be upgraded to
have number-plate tracking
systems, similar to those used
by Wilson.
Subiaco CEO Ian Hill, and
Mr Arbuckle, ruled this out.

POST, August 29, 2015 – Page 101

‘Rebellion’ sparks new Link forum
• From page 7
and ratepayers have got involved
in this way,” Senator Ludlam
said.
“They believe that once you
get this dedicated trucking
route into Fremantle, it’s likely
to induce or pull large volumes
of heavy vehicle traffic down
either Curtin Avenue or Stirling
Highway.”
“That can only mean more
trucks and more congestion on
those roads.”
Pressure on the state and
federal governments to release
documents showing the costbenefit analysis and business
case for the freight link was also
growing, with Labor and Greens
Senators banding together
this month to support Senator
Ludlam’s call for a Senate inquiry into the decision-making

process behind the $1.6billion
scheme.
That inquiry is due to begin
next month.
“The freight link is an enormously invasive project that
was made without any basic
assessment work having been
done, and now that it’s all starting to unravel, we can start to
see just how poor the decision
making really is,” Senator
Ludlam said.
“What has happened is the
government is refusing to release the assessment documents,
the business plan and various
other things that went into the
decision making for this project,
and it appears the reason that
they’re withholding them is that
the numbers just don’t stack
up,” he said.
He predicted the revelations
within the documents would

fatally wound the credibility of
the freight link scheme.
“That will be the likely end
of the project, when we can
finally get our hands on the
documents,” he said.
A North Fremantle resident
himself, Senator Ludlam said his
suburb would be in a precarious position if the freight link
went ahead.
“North Fremantle in one way
is one of the most troubling
bits of the project, because the
government and Main Roads
are being very secretive about
what’s planned to get the trucks
that final couple of kilometres
to the port,” he said.
“There’s this extraordinary
debacle over whether it’s going
to be a tunnel or a double-decker
bridge or a roadway that gets the
freight through North Freo to
the port – it’s just a mess. 

“I find it really hard to believe
that there isn’t a plan for this
final section,” he said. 
“I find it easier to believe
that there is a plan, but it’s so
god-awful that they’re refusing
to release it.”
Professor Peter Newman
has told the POST he believes
plans for a massive truck flyover
at Tydeman Road are being
drawn up.
The freight link’s estimated
$1.6billion cost only gets the
freight traffic to the south side
of Stirling Bridge. A tunnel or
double-storey bridge to the port
would be an additional and
massive cost.
Beyond the concern over the
link’s impact on the western
suburbs, Senator Ludlam said it
was out of step with people’s expectations in relation to wetland
preservation and environmental

probity, respect for Aboriginal
heritage and responsible spending of taxpayer dollars.
“Effectively, the whole plan is
a 1950s era solution for a port
that has long since outgrown
it,” he said.
He said at the Cottesloe public
forum he would be encouraging
western suburb residents to
speak up about their misgivings.
“This is the time to jump in
and start fighting for a better
plan,” he said.
“This affects everybody,
whether it’s in your backyard
or not.
“What could take its place
is getting freight on rail, and a
sensible look at an alternative
overflow port, probably down at
Kwinana, with a dedicated rail
link down from Kewdale and a
dedicated road link on Tonkin
Highway.”

Love and carriage … Michael Hayward and Megan Grant. Photo courtesy Josh Wells Photography. Right: Michael signs the wedding certificate. Photo courtesy Matt Devlin.

By DAVID COHEN
Megan Grant didn’t know
where she was going to be
when she married Michael
Hayward last Saturday.
The couple got in the front
carriage of a Fremantle line
train with 30 friends just before noon and the celebrant
got to work.
“We got married at Loch
Street, which was a bit of
a shame because it’s in
Karrakatta where the cemetery
is,” Megan said.
“We can always get buried
there.”
When Megan (34), from
Kununurra, tied the knot with

Michael (29), from Applecross,
she wore a handmade dress
and garland sourced from
Etsy and carried a banksia
bouquet she had made with
her sister.
“But I didn’t have a train on
top,” she joked.
The couple were keen to save
money and discussed whether
they should marry in a park.
“We didn’t want to worry
about the weather – and we
realised the train seemed to
have a lot going for it,” Megan
said.
Michael is Aboriginal. His
mum made a tie for him from
indigenous-patterned cloth
and a matching sash for Megan.

Megan said she and Michael
loved hopping off the train
at Swanbourne to devour a
brownie at the Bookcaffe in
Claremont Crescent.
“We had lunch with everyone
there. It was lovely,” she said.
“I made a raspberry and
white chocolate layer cake.”
The moving wedding was a
surprise for the guests, who
were told they were catching
the train to an engagement
party.
“We are no strangers to romance at Transperth,” PTA
spokeswoman Claire Krol said.
“Believe it or not, this is the
second wedding we’ve had on
a train.

“The first was in January last
year on the Joondalup line.
“We know public transport
plays an important role in
people’s day-to-day lives,
but for a couple to choose
one of our trains as a venue
for their wedding is truly
exceptional.
“Buses and trains seem to
have captured the hearts of
quite a few Transperth passengers. Earlier this year a
man chose to propose to his
girlfriend using a Transperth
bus which read: ‘Will you
marry me, Tanya?’.”
Megan and Michael’s honeymoon in New York and Canada
was due to start on Tuesday.

much chance because of their apparent inability to kick a score big
enough to win a grand final.
But the Dockers are now in the
marvellous position of all-but-definitely finishing top two, so now they
can – and will – manage their list.
One of the things we do know
about the Dockers is their potentially high level of skill.
We saw that in first quarters early
in the season, when they blasted
high-quality opposition out of the
water.
Their defence is among the best:
stout, battle-hardened troopers
everywhere.
They have arguably the best
midfield in the competition, and
boast the AFL’s best player, Nat the
Magnif, who can single-handedly
fight off the Philistines with the
jawbone of an ass.
But their Achilles heel is their
attack.
We’re told that to win a grand final
in these modern times, you have to
be capable of kicking 100 points.
I’m not absolutely convinced
about that, but IF the Dockers can
get it together in attack, they have
enough potency there as well.
The big word, for every one of
the eight teams left in the hunt,
is the one Rudyard Kipling made
famous …
If.

Students’ grandparents and special friends were
guests at Presbyterian Ladies’ College junior school
on Wednesday.
For about two hours, the visitors were offered a
rare insight into the students’ daily classroom lives.
They joined younger students for extra activities like
haiku-writing, story book sessions and tower-building.
Grace Forrest (22) was Amber Downes’ (8) special friend
for the day and is often her babysitter out of school.
Amber said it was a nice change to have Grace visit.
Ursula Harper, grandmother of three students, said
she had loved returning to the school for another
Grandparents’ Day.
“Some grandparents live far away and this gives
them a special feel for what their grandchildren are
doing at school,” Ms Harper said.
Ms Harper said the day was also a good chance
for grandparents to learn abut modern technology.
“If my computer breaks down at home, I ask the
six-year-old for help,” she said.

It’s all a matter of your perspective
• From page 102

Luke Shuey asked another boy
(about 10): “Do you really want me
to write ‘To the best footballer in
school’? And then sign it?”
Mitch Brown, the half-back
with his surgically re-built knee,
worked the crowd like a campaigning politician: “G’day! What
school do you go to? Do you train
like this?”

What I noticed everywhere was
that this was a no-stress training
session for a happy team whose
players all seemed to know who
they were and where they were
going.
And to end it all, there was a
session of torping, which took me
personally right back to the era of
Bernie Naylor.
There’s nothing better than seeing a few seductively spiralling

torps smashing their way through
the big ones.
I reckon it’s sexy and satisfying
to see a good torp, particularly
when just about every player tries
to bomb one before he leaves the
ground.
The same players would probably be dragged, sacked or gelded
by the coach if they dared to try
one during a game.
But there’s no doubt they love

to kick ’em.
Nothing compared with kicking
a torpedo punt through the goalposts from 80 yards out, landing
three rows back, after the final
siren had sounded.
Malcolm Blight achieved exactly
that against the then powerhouse,
Carlton, way back in 1976.
It’s footy folklore now, but
Blighty’s shot on goal that day
travelled every inch of 80 yards!

Austin Robertson’s sporting

It’s all a matter of your perspective
For the past three weeks, I
have tried to gain admission
to a Dockers training session
– not too onerous a request,
given they have “open” training sessions every week.
Part of my request was for an
interview with Michael Barlow,
a player I have admired from
afar for a long time.
That too was denied me.
Well, with the Dockers out of
the question for another week,
here’s the drum from Subiaco
Oval about the hottest ticket in
the land right now: the West
Coast Eagles.
Their training last Tuesday
was a no-stress affair.
Coach Simmo – in some TV
interviews he looks as lively
as last week’s porridge though
in reality he’s sharper than a
surgeon’s scalpel – was wearing
red shoes.
Hot diggity dog, how cool is
that?
Big Nic Nat was resting, as was

New Eagles back man Tommy Barass got some tips from footy master
Dean Cox at training.
That big old ex-warhorse,
that half-back dart, “Dasher”
Dean Cox, was giving a one-onWellingham.
Churning up laps were for- one tutorial to Tom Barrass, the
ward Cryptic Cripps, Joshes bright big-boy back-man.
He’ll be needed to help that
Kennedy and Hill, the engine
room, Shannon Hurn (with those midget group of defenders, who
tough-as-teak legs), Matt Priddis were amazing last week as they
(edging closer and closer to bravely stuck to their game plan
back-to-back Brownlows every and again carried the day.
Coxy plays forward, gives a
week), and Mark Hutchings.

nudge with his right shoulder
(that would be like running into a
Mack truck for me); Tom recovers
his balance, and faced with the
frame of a pretend huge forward
in front of him, tries to spoil.
They repeated this little task
over and over again.
Barrass was a raw youth just
starting his journey, getting instruction from a true master, a
footy god who brought honour
and distinction to our game …
as well as being able to kick
right and left foot.
And tutoring another young
Eagle was Mark Nicoski, whose
grace on the footy field once
reminded me of Nureyev.
Nicoski was kicking the ball
high and instructing the lad to
keep watching it; then back off
quickly; then take three steps
forward to launch himself at
the ball.
Otherwise, folks, it was pretty
much routine.
One fun drill involved a ring

of six players and seven balls.
Imagine that I handball across
the ring of players to you – and
that you must get rid of your
ball to somebody else before
you catch the one I have just
handballed.
Still with me?
The pills zip around the circle
like balls hit by a flipper in a
pinball parlour.
Whoever drops the ball has
to do push-ups.
There was a lot of shouting and
yahooing during this exercise,
but it was all pretty relaxed
as well.
Then there were pot-shots at
goal from the players’ gateway
– and the obligatory autographs
for the gathered group of kids.
One of the youngsters asked
Callum Sinclair (and hasn’t he
been a plus for the forward
structure as well as the ruck)
why he was so tall.
“Genetics.”

If you can keep your head…
There are 22 AFL games in a
home-and-away season.
In about 14 of them, teams play
as they should; in four they play
better than they should; and in
the other four, they play worse
than they should.
These figures are just guesswork, of course, and most likely
statistically incorrect, but they
feel about right.
Hawthorn, according to the
all-knowing footy pundits, are
the benchmark for this year’s

premiership.
If we believe that, last Friday
night’s boil-over came up snake
eyes for the mighty Hawks.
Indeed, they were shown a
thing or two by Port Adelaide, a
pre-season fancy that won’t play
finals this season.
So now the Hawks will almost
certainly have to fly across the
Nullarbor to play their first final.
There are different ways to
look at this.
Even when they are playing
worse than they should, the

FOR THE INFORMATION OF MPBC MEMBERS AND THEIR GUESTS

Hawks usually find a way to win.
Two years ago, they did just
that in the Grand Final when,
for all money, it looked like my
Freo Dockers were going to win
their first premiership.
Being the juggernaut of excellence they are, Hawthorne found
a way to win.
But last Friday, they either got
lost somewhere up a dark alley,
or, just as likely, Port Adelaide
played above their usual unpredictability.
This season, Port has been the
only team to defeat Hawthorn
twice, which was certainly
no fluke – yet Port lost to
Brisbane and Carlton. Work
that out!
That brings me to the
64million-dollar question:
which side is the benchmark
if it’s not Hawthorn?
You could make an airtight
case to say it’s the West Coast
Eagles: potent in attack, undeniably resilient in defence
against the odds, with a crop
of midfielders to die for – even
if one of them is once bitten
twice shy.
Then there is the dark horse,
Western Bulldogs: even after
last weekend’s spanking by
the Eagles, they’re still the
biggest improvers in the AFL.
The big thing going for
them is their raw pace, and
a truckload of talented kids
who are eager for success and
probably pinching themselves
that they are actually a bona
fide chance this year.
I suppose footy fans from
the harbour city would like
to think Sydney are still in
with a chance to bring home
the bacon, but their defence
looks unsettled, they have
lost Luke Parker from their
midfield and their attack has
looked disjointed all season,
even with Buddy.
And what about the Tigers?
Haven’t they answered just
about every question about
their legitimacy?
And North Melbourne,
who on a given day can beat
anybody – as they did last
weekend when they knocked
off the team on top of the
premiership ladder.
Which team is that? Oh, you
know, the Fremantle Dockers.
Freo is about the only
finals-bound team not to get
a mention in dispatches when
a likely winner is discussed
with any seriousness.
Many noted tipsters and
scribes don’t rate the Dockers

James Hird, shamed but cashed up.

I’m sorry, so sorry
At last, the inevitable
guillotine has fallen on the
Bombers’ former golden boy,
James Hird.
Unfortunately, however,
Bomber-gate still has some
distance to travel before the
outcome of the World AntiDoping Authority appeal
finally consigns this sorry saga
to the history books.
As Jimmy’s tearful wavethe-white-flag press conference unfolded, I must admit to
some compassion for the guy.
It lasted only long enough
to reflect on the devastating
damage this long-running
drama has had on our code
at home and internationally,
the enormous cost and ugly
smear that will forever be
with the Essendon Football
Club, along with the list of
talented, and in all probability innocent, footballers who
have had their reputations
dragged through the mire
and their careers strangled.
It’s hard to fathom the
colossal mental damage and
emotional stress this has had
on everybody involved at that
football club, from board
members to the janitor, not to
mention the shame of it all on
the long-suffering supporters.
One thing that sticks in my

gullet is how much moolah
James Hird has made in the
meantime.
He has had a 12-month soiree in Paris, no doubt eating
fine food from any number of
brilliant restaurants, all on an
annual salary in the order of
a million bucks.
Will somebody please tell
me where you get a job like
that? I’m available at a moment’s notice.
Now he’s rumoured to be
getting another mill-or-so
payout from the Bombers for
making himself scarce.
James has also signalled
that there is a tell-all book
coming – hell, that will be like
throwing another bucket of
kerosene on the fire – meaning
more big bucks in the Hird
back pocket.
I suppose he wants the opportunity to tell his side of
the story, though you have to
wonder why he hasn’t done so
already to the various hearings and investigations and
tribunals and enquiries we’ve
had into this mess.
So, after all that, wasn’t it
good to see old man Usain
Bolt see off a field of dubious challengers to show that
good, clean guys can still run
fast – and finish first!
