‘I’m very emotional’: Melbourne’s Greek community braces for vote

Joseph Xiradakis hopes the country will vote in favour of the measures.As children chased the pigeons outside a Melbourne Greek Orthodox parish, the adults’ emotions were similarly stirred over the crisis back in the motherland.

Greeks headed to the polls at 2pm Sunday, Australian time, to vote for or against more stringent austerity measures.

The referendum comes after Greece defaulted on an International Monetary Fund loan of 1.5 billion euros ($A2.18 billion).

Out the front of South Melbourne’s St Eustathios parish on Sunday morning, people were concerned for their relatives facing hardship in Greece.

Joseph Xiradakis said he believed if the country voted no to the austerity measures, its economy would collapse.

“If it is going out from the Euro, it doesn’t have the dough to go on,” he said.

“But if it stays in the Euro… there is a little bit more safety.”

Mr Xiradakis, who moved to Melbourne almost 50 years ago, said he felt helpless for his relatives in Crete.

“People are trying to do something,” he said, “but the trouble is, what can you do? You can’t do much. Greece is right in the bottom. It’s a very bad thing.”

But over in Brunswick, recently arrived Olga Grammenou was a “definite no” to more austerity.

“All the years, the governments we’ve had were full in corruption and they weren’t really care [caring] about the people in Greece,” she said.

“This government shows that she fights about people’s rights, that she cares.”

The cafe worker moved to Melbourne from Corfu more than two years ago after losing her 17-year job as an optical dispenser and was unable to find a new one.

She and her son, now 6, joined her husband, who came the year before to escape the country’s dire financial situation.

Ms Grammenou said her friends back in Greece were struggling even to buy food.

She thought most of them would vote no, but said many were were confused because of propaganda from the European Union.

“They’re terrifying them,” she said echoing the words of Greece finance minister Yanis Varoufakis who has accused his country’s creditors of “terrorism”.

“I’m very emotional about the situation.”

Back in South Melbourne, Terry Charalambous described the mood in Melbourne’s Greek community as “worried and anxious”.

He said it was divided on which way the country should vote, with passion on both sides.

“I fear the worse if they don’t [vote yes],” he said.

Maria Kypriotis agreed: “We think it’s a good thing for the Greeks to change their habits and start again.”

Reigning Cats down stubborn Bulldogs

NEWLYN has kept its fading finals hopes alive with a thrilling eight-point victory over Daylesford atVictoria Park.
Nanjing Night Net

Saturday’s win leavesthe Cats in 10thposition on the Central Highlands Football League ladder, three games behind eighth-placed Ballan.

The spirited resistance of the Bulldogs was on display from the opening ball-up, as they stunnedthe Cats to establisha three-goal lead.

Jeremy Steen, Michael Cummings and Emlyn Nettleton were in fine form for the Bulldogs, whichwere clearly driven to avoid another thrashing after their 130-point loss to Springbank a week earlier.

However, with their slimfinals hopes on the line, the Cats clicked into gear andreduced the lead to three-points by the main break.

For the visitors, star onballer Dan Wehrung was running riot, while Lachlan Shaw also got on thescoreboard.

With both sides determined not to lose the four points, a relentless half of footy followed withconstant goal­for-­goal action.

Cats forward Will Young, coaching with Wehrung in the absence of brother Kal, finally came into his own withtwo goals.However, the Bulldogs’ Patrick Rowe and Robert Rodgers matched his efforts to land athree-point advantageby the final change.

The ever-­improving Cats held strong in the last quarter to gather a crucial victory, which Wehrung said was an attribute his side had learned in the past year.

Young finished with four majors to his name -including a set shot goal on the final siren -whileWehrung nabbed three of his own in another strong performance.

The Bulldogs, while deflated after their gallant efforts went unrewarded, were best served byRowe,Rodgers and Sam Winnard.

McKinnon blasts ‘disgusting’ Smith

Preview: AlexMcKinnonon 60 Minutes
Nanjing Night Net

Melbourne have defended Cameron Smith after Alex McKinnon described as “disgusting” the Storm captain’s on-field comments about the incident that ended his NRL career.

Former Newcastle forward McKinnon suffered a severe spinal injury after landing head first in a three-man tackle when playing against Melbourne in March last year.

Speaking to Channel Nine’s60 Minutesprogram, which airs on Sunday night, McKinnon has described Smith’s on-field actions after the tackle as “f—ing ridiculous”.

He believed comments Smith made on the field at the time implied that he was somewhat to blame for the injury.

“If he doesn’t duck his head, that doesn’t happen,” Smith was heard telling referees.

McKinnon said he was still angry with Smith and said he had not heard from him since the incident.

Melbourne on Sunday released a statement saying Smith had no idea of the extent of McKinnon’s injury when on the field and had attempted to contact the injured player several times afterwards.

The Storm also pointed out that Smith had helped launch the Rise for Alex fundraising NRL round last year and that Melbourne had raised $20,000 for McKinnon on that match day alone.

Smith refused to comment at Queensland training on the Gold Coast on Sunday ahead of Wednesday night’s State of Origin decider in Brisbane.

“At the time of this tragic accident, no one on the field had any idea of the severity of the injury Alex had suffered,” the Storm statement said.

“All at Storm and especially the playing group were shocked and horrified to learn of Alex’s injuries in the days after the event.Storm players led by captain Cameron Smith requested to visit Alex in hospital numerous times while he was in Melbourne.

“The requests were declined, which was totally understandable given Alex needed to focus on the initial stages of his recovery.

“Storm’s football director continued to liaise with his Newcastle equivalent regarding the right time for club players to contact Alex in the weeks and months after the incident.”

The Storm said Smith tried to support McKinnon by launching the Rise for Alex campaign with NSW counterpart Paul Gallen last year.

“Cameron Smith was proud to launch the #riseforalex round last year alongside Paul Gallen, as well as to wear Alex’s jersey number at Storm’s game in Melbourne in the same round,” it said.”Storm’s fans raised more than $20,000 for Alex that day alone.”

Fairfax sports columnist Danny Weidlersaid Smith will be under particularly intense pressure as he goes into the Origin decider on Wednesday night.

Weidlerwrote that Smith is a smart and well-respected player, who misread the McKinnon situation, and will have a tough time explaining his behaviour.

“His conduct on the field have left the [McKinnon] family upset – it is not going too far to say that the family and Alex have dealt with their feelings when it comes to Jordan McLean, the player who made the tackle,” Weidler wrote.

TweetFacebookIT IS the recognition they richly deserve.

On Saturday, hundreds of service men and women from across the army, navy and air force marched on Civic Park as part of the 2015 Reserve Day March.

The march, which was addressed by Tim Fischer, the chairman of the Australian Reserve Forces Council and former deputy-prime minister, has run in cities across the country since 1988, and attempts to raise the profile of reservists.

Marching beside the reservists on Saturday were the 14 members of the Hunter-based Australian Armed Forced Re-enactment Heritage Unit, who will, next month, travel to Malaysia to mark the 70th anniversary of the infamous Sandakan death march.

Secretary Richard Kieida was part of the 60th anniversary ceremony in Malaysia in 2005, and said it was an honour to be invited back for the 70th anniversary ceremony on August 15.

He said the Sandakan Death March was the “single worst recorded atrocity against Australia soldiers” during World War II.

In late 1944, as the allied forces advanced, the Japanese sent 2000 Australian and British prisoners on a 260 kilometre journey along jungle tracks to Ranau.

The prisoners were weak and sick, and many died on the way.

Residents who were caught helping the prisoners were tortured and killed, but Mr Kieida said the Sandakan people “risked their lives to provide food, water and intelligence” for the soldiers trapped in prisoner of war camps.

Two prisoners of war who survived the death camp will return to Sandakan for the event.

“We feel that this campaign is a significant part of Australian’s military history, but it is a campaign that is seldom spoken about and does not receive the same level of public recognition as other events, such as Gallipoli,” Mr Kieida said.

The unit, which numbered 54 when it was founded in 1995, conducts ceremonial duties during war anniversaries and Anzac Day services when the Australian Defence Force or cadet units cannot participate.

It operates to make sure the sacrifices Australian soldiers made are always remembered.

Uni pride on the table

CSU team captains Mathew Dunn and Olivia Patterson help launch the games at the MTC.
Nanjing Night Net

IT’S just as much about forging friendships off the field as it is chasing the coveted bragging rights on the field.

The Eastern University Games, officially launched at the MTC last night, will see 3000 students from 22 universities compete in 16 different sports.

For 22-year-old Olivia Patterson, attending her fifth Uni Games is all about chasing a medal and having fun.

The CSU Bathurst PE teaching student is CSU touch football and basketball team captain.

Australian Catholic University students Sam White, Emily Carroll and Nigel Price enter the games.

“It’s a big thing, everyone gets involved,” she said.

“There’s a lot of pride at stake.”

CSU’s330 athletes competing will share their campus with visiting teams over the next four days.

“I love it, it’s such an experience and you meet new people,” Miss Patterson said.

“As soon as you’re on the field, give it everything or don’t bother.

“We’re aiming for a medal in both sports.”

GOOD TIMES: Red Bull’s Monique Ellis and Kath Evans make sure students are hydrated. Picture: Les Smith

The 2014 champions, The University of Newcastle, will defend their title, but these CSU students are hoping tocapitalise on their home ground advantage over the next four days.

CSU squash and ultimate frisbee team captainMathew Dunn, 21, is chasing his second gold medal at his sixth Uni Games.

“Looking at the draw, I’m hoping for a medal,” he said.

The Leeton import, who studies Agricultural Science at CSU Wagga, says the event provides students with an opportunity to meet people they may not meet otherwise.

“It’s good fun,” he said.

“You’re meeting so many new people.”

It is the largest team CSU has ever submitted.

The Eastern University Games are the largest of the three regional university games events to be held simultaneouslyand will bring in an estimated $1.8 million in visitor expenditure to the local economy.

The games are being held in partnership with Destination NSW, Charles SturtUniversity and WaggaCity Council.

“Waggais known as the City of Good Sports and the Games are the fourth major sportingevent we’ve hosted this year, which is a testament to our fantastic facilities and our community’ssupport for sporting events,” Mayor Rod Kendall said.

The Eastern University Games act as a qualifying competition for the Australian University Games,which will be held on the Gold Coast fromSeptember 27 to October 2 in selected sports.

TweetFacebookIT was a world-first months in the making, and it had the crowd at the Hunter Valley Air Show in Rutherford in awe on Sunday.

Aerobatics pilot Paul Bennet flew his plane between two jumps – barely a metre above the ground – while stunt rider Joel Brown did a backflip and jumped over him on a motorbike.

More than one thousand people held their breath as it unfolded.

Mr Bennet and Mr Brown were “relieved” to be back on the ground in one piece after the stunt.

They signed autographs for wide-eyed children who wished they could be like them one day.

It was the first time they had performed the stunt in public. They practised it six times on Friday and another 15 times before that in a Luskintyre field.

“It’s not something you want to get wrong, it doesn’t end well if it doesn’t work out,” Mr Bennet said.

“The build-up has been good. Conditions were good and the jump felt really good,” Mr Brown added.

Windy conditions on Saturday forced them to cancel the stunt.

They had been hoping the wind would ease enough on Sunday, which it did, to make the stunt “as safe as possible”. “It wasn’t perfect today, but we could work with it … It was great doing it in front of a cheering crowd and I’ll definitely sleep better tonight, I’m very relieved,” Mr Brown said.

The stunt was the main attraction among a wide range of aircraft on show at the Rutherford aerodrome.

A superSTOL plane had a small mechanical issue as it came down the runway.

A bolt in the under-carriage broke and left it on its side.

The pilot escaped unharmed.

‘Nothing will be right with the world again’Phil Walsh’s daughter’s emotional tribute

Phil Walsh with his family.The daughter of slain Adelaide Crows coach Phil Walsh has written anemotional tribute to her father following his tragic death.
Nanjing Night Net

“Hold your family close, never for a second take them for granted for that will be the second you lose them,” Quinn Walsh reportedly wrote on her Facebook page on Saturday.

“I have lost half my family in a blink of an eye, nothing will be right with the world again.

“Wanna thank everyone for the support and love, will be home soon to be with my mother and to say goodbye to my one and only hero. x”

Ms Walsh was holidaying in the US on Friday, when her father was stabbed to death in the family’s Somerton Park home. His wife, Meredith, was also home at the time.

Walsh’s 26-year-old son and Ms Walsh’s older brother, Cy, has been charged with murder.

Ms Walsh returned to Adelaide on Saturday and has made no further statement. Mrs Walsh, who was being treated for a minor leg injury at Flinders Medical Centre, was released from hospital on Saturday.

In another development, a taxi driver who may have seen Cy Walsh at about 2.30amon Friday morning in Glenelg East, has come forward to policeas they continue to investigatea possible link to the drug ice in the case.

South Australian police refused to comment publicly on the claim because the matter is before the courts, but Fairfax Media understands that detectives are looking into whether the highly-addictive drug played a part.

A photo emerged on Saturday of a smoking pipe that was taken from a car parked at the Walsh home in an evidence bag by police.

Cy Walsh remains in James Nash House, a secure mental health facility, after being transferred from Flinders Medical Centre.

He was remanded in custody after a short bedside court hearing on Friday and is due to face Adelaide Magistrates Court on September 15.

Phil Walsh, 55, was found with multiple stab wounds at his family’s home in the seaside suburb at 2am on Friday. He died at the scene, despite the efforts of ambulance paramedics.

His son was arrested less than two kilometres away from the home, out the front of a school friend’s house in First Avenue, Glenelg East, where he had been regularly staying.

Witnesses to the arrest, who were residents living nearby, were woken by car doors slamming, elevated voices and lights from police cars.

“He was lying on the ground over there,” one neighbour pointed across the street to a driveway that he believed still had specks of dried blood on it.

“He was pretty quiet.”

Residents in First Avenue had linked the former Immanuel College student to a separate block of units in the same street, which had been known as a place where drugs were regularly used.

The unit was boarded-up after its windows had been smashed in a recent incident.

“When the arrest happened (on Friday) we thought, ‘Here we go again’,” a neighbour said.

Police said Cy Walsh was not involved in that incident and the man living inside the unit, who did not want to be named, repeatedly denied any connection.

“I have not met him, I have not seen him,” he said.

Police patrolled First Avenue sporadically on Saturday having already door-knocked residents on Friday, taking statements from a handful. They also canvassed business along the major thoroughfare between Somerton Park and Glenelg East for security footage to trace Cy Walsh’s movements.

Police are believed to be speaking with a taxi driver who investigators believe may have seen a man with blood on him near the corner of Jetty Road and Brighton Road.

In Somerton Park, neighbours were coming to grips with the death on Saturday.

The street had been reopened after it was cordoned-off on Friday while investigators forensically examined the scene and seized evidence, including the smoking pipe, a computer and a knife.

A security guard was stationed outside the Walsh home on Saturday with police tape still closing-off the property.

Neighbours spoken to by Fairfax Media did not hear any sign of a commotion inside the home in the early hours of Friday morning.

Most did not know the family that had only moved in in May.

Louise Jennings, who lived two doors down, said she had been “looking forward” to getting to know them.

“They seemed like a lovely family and I’m very sad to hear what had happened,” she said.

“The atmosphere here on Friday was so eerie, it was like the earth had known what had happened, it was so quiet.”

A further two homes up, nine-year-old Jayden Barkla had hung out his Crow jumper and scarf before kicking the footy in his front yard.

“He was a very good coach,” Jayden said.

Major Crime Squad Superintendent Des Bray told reporters on Friday morning that the incident was “tragic”.

“It’s not ever just that he’s a high-profile person, it’s just absolutely terrible when families are torn apart in such tragic circumstances,” he said.

“For any family, regardless of who it is, [this is] one of the worst things you could imagine that could happen to you. The pain and suffering of the family is no different.”

Nanjing Night Net

The Kookaburras midfielder scored the Australian’s third in a 4-1 win against Ireland at the Hockey World League semi-finals in Belgium, before making a hand ­gesture near his head.

At one stage in his career after hitting the net Orchard had been renowned for doing the Ram, a shout out to his former Maitland club by making a set of horns with his fingers, the back of his hand and his forehead.

More recently this had been put in the kit bag and it remains that way, with the most recent shenanigans nothing to do with the animal symbol but rather the alphabet.

Orchard made the letter W on his melon using both hands as a birthday message back home for his younger brother Josh, representing the affectionate nickname Weenis.

GRASSROOTS: Newcastle Jets players join in a beach football game with fans at Nobbys.

The Newcastle Jets start official pre-season training on Monday under new head coach Scott Miller, who watched the Youth side go around in the local first grade competition on the weekend.

But last week the squad was out and about jogging along the foreshore from Honeysuckle before engaging in a game of beach football with fans at Nobbys.

It was certainly a step in the right direction in picking up the pieces from last season’s debacle and ­engaging with the community for 2015-2016.

This was all covered last week by Julia Zamiro on her program Home Delivery with Fearnley going down memory lane to where it all started in the country NSW town of Carcoar.

The inspiring episode is well worth a captain cook online at ABC iView.

Bringing people togetherAnd finally, forget State of Origin, the NRL or even the Maitland Pickers – Saturday’s international clash was one for the ages.

Despite the political situation between the two countries being at boiling point – Russia and Ukraine meet on neutral territory in Belgrade.

Regardless of the result, it proves that sport really can bring people together, even through the threat of war.
