Religious path spur to an artist’s vision RED Hill-based artist Michael Leeworthy enjoys walking. He’s as happy following trails on the Mornington Peninsula as he is following in the footsteps of Middle Ages pilgrims to the shrine of the apostle, St James the Great, in Spain. The biggest difference between the two, he says, is the number of people he sees along the way. The peninsula’s three main trails are quiet, whereas the famed Camino de Santiago, from France to Spain, attracts thousands of visitors. While Mr Leeworthy acknowledges the peninsula’s trails can’t offer quite the same cultural or religious rewards as the Way, he believes improvements could see their popularity grow, both here and overseas. See “Track to put peninsula on tourist path” Page 5 Picture: Gary Sissons

Help comes after the fire By early yesterday (Monday), $6745 had been raised in three days by 172 people who work alongside Caroline Tootell at Peninsula Health to be added to a “substantial sum” raised by Somers yacht Club auctioning donated items. “They’ve been told insurance will cover most of the damage, but not everything. They’re understandably devastated,” Peninsula Health chief

HELP for those affected by a bushfire which swept through parts of Crib Point two weeks ago is coming from the community and state government. While the government has announced emergency relief assistance for affected property owners, co-workers and friends have already raised thousands of dollars for David and Caroline Tootell, whose house on The Esplanade was the only one lost in the fire.

operating officer Jan Child stated in an email to staff when launching a Gofundme campaign to raise $5000. The Tootells are members of Somers Yacht Club and on several occasions have loaned their boat to the club for state and national sailing events. Items auctioned to raise money for the Tootells included wine, a bicycle, barbecue, paintings and sculptures, fresh produce and gift vouchers to lo-

cal restaurants. A bottle of Grange Hermitage went for $700, and a 100-yearold leather bound pocket copy of the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, sold for more than $600. Mr Tootell after the auction said he and his wife were overwhelmed by the strength of community support. “It is hard to express how appreciative we are of people’s generosity. It is a privilege to be part of such a com-

munity,” he said. In an email sent to Peninsula Health staff Ms Tootell described seeing a small grass fire and asking her CFA volunteer neighbour to “call it in”. “I went home and put a few things in the car just in case. The CFA came and, that afternoon, the ‘firies’ said it was under control and we were safe.We relaxed,” she stated. Continued Page 5

Risks, but no shelter at Arthurs Seat David Harrison david@mpnews.com.au DESPITE the recognised high risk of catastrophic bushfire at Arthurs Seat, there are no plans to build a public bushfire shelter. Residents and other people caught in the area during a major fire would have to make their own plans because numbers would be limited in the summit station of the Skyift gondola. Emergency plan documents make clear that when built the Skylift’s top station will cater only for its customers and staff. The Skylift group is not required to provide shelter for the public. The building’s capability to defend against a bushfire meets all standards, Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors were told at last week’s meeting. Details of the emergency fire procedures were revealed as councillors were discussing Skylift’s plans, part of the steps being taken to get full approval for the contentious project. They passed it, as required by VCAT, after debate where concerns were raised about the fire risk at Arthurs Seat, rated as one of Victoria’s most dangerous bushfire areas. The summit at present has no bushfire shelter. Parks Victoria is responsible for the site but there has never been a suggestion a fire shelter would be built there, despite the authority’s anticipation of greater crowds attracted by the gondola ride. A member of the Save Our Seat protest group, Alison Laird, made a submission to councillors about Skylift’s emergency procedures. Councillors

Fire fear: Concerns have been raised over the capacity of the proposed Skylift’s upper station to cope with the number of people who may be seeking shelter from a bushfire on Arthurs Seat. Although trees will be cleared from under the gondolas, the surrounding hillsides and roadsides will remain heavily forested.

then questioned her, and bushfire expert Amalie Tibbits, representing Skylift, for more than an hour. The emergency plans include who is in charge in an emergency and procedures for getting passengers out of the gondolas. A difficulty raised is that half of the 34 gondola cars fixed to the endless cable would be heading to the summit, possibly away from a fire, while the others would be heading down the slope. Ms Laird said residents were well aware of the dangers of the area in which they live and the need to have

a fire plan. But the gondola ride would mean extra people on the summit, including passengers who might leave the immediate area and go walking or have a picnic in the state park. In an emergency many could seek access to the summit station as the only safe place, or, if their vehicles were parked at the summit, could try to leave in blinding smoke down dangerous roads. These people would make it more difficult for locals to implement their fire plans, since they would not necessarily be familiar with the area.

A further problem was that the CFA and other emergency services had said they could not guarantee they could reach the summit in a fire, partly because of the speed at which a fire could reach the summit. Fires have been timed at taking seven minutes to traverse the steep slope. Three roads lead to and from the summit, all of them narrow and tree-lined. The road on the Port Phillip side of the hill would almost certainly be unusable because of its steepness and sharp corners.

House fire CFA units from Crib Point, Hastings and Bittern fought a house fire in Stony Point Rd, Crib Point, Saturday night. The fire took 20 minutes to bring under control and crews stayed on the scene for an hour, Mornington Fire Brigade station officer Blake Ross said. It is believed lightning struck a gas bottle which exploded starting the fire.

Raffle for CFA CRIB Point Cricket Club members will hold a “Monster Raffle” during their family outdoor cinema night on Saturday 6 February to raise money for Crib Point CFA. The gates will open at 7pm and the movie – The Goonies – will start at 7.30pm. Information on fire prevention will be available.

Morning coffee talk THE Rev Alex Packett and his wife, Pam, of Holy Trinity Church, Hastings, will talk about their experiences treating leprosy and their missionary work at a morning coffee, 10.15am, Thursday 11 February, at Hastings Museum, corner Marine Pde and Skinner St, Hastings. All welcome. The cost is $5 a person. Details: 0490 132 011 or 9781 1141.

Track to put peninsula on tourist path Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au ALTHOUGH there is no chance of offering travellers a cathedral at the end of their journey, Michael Leeworthy believes a walking track on the Mornington Peninsula could gain some international popularity along the lines of the celebrated Camino de Santiago, which runs from France to Spain. Also known as the Way of St James, the Camino has four pilgrimage routes to the shrine of the apostle St James the Great in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia, north western Spain. Thousands of tourists follow the Camino de Santiago each year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or sections of it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; either to see the sites or as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth. Michael Leeworthy, an artist who runs a gallery at Red Hill, envisages combining three existing peninsula trails to form a 100 kilometre circuit that could be completed by â&#x20AC;&#x153;a very fit personâ&#x20AC;? in three days or take school groups four days. But to achieve any sort of popularity the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Camino de Mornington Peninsulaâ&#x20AC;? needs a network of camping grounds and facilities. Mr Leeworthy says the peninsula â&#x20AC;&#x153;caminoâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which can be translated as a path, track or journey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would involve joining the existing Two Bays, Coastal and Point Nepean and the Bays tracks. It would be called the Mornington Peninsula Walking Track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In our little town of Red Hill I know of at least 10 men and women who have flown to France or Spain to walk the Camino,â&#x20AC;? Mr Leeworthy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know of one gentleman who has been seven times and I personally have made the journey

on four occasions and have taken my son and daughters on separate occasions.â&#x20AC;? Mr Leeworthy said infrastructure made a difference. Other countries â&#x20AC;&#x153;understand the tourist dollar very wellâ&#x20AC;?, providing â&#x20AC;&#x153;modestâ&#x20AC;? accommodation for walkers and camping grounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The same could said for the Cradle Mountain track in Tasmania and the famous walking tracks in New Zealand â&#x20AC;Ś not to forget Kokoda [Papua New Guinea].â&#x20AC;? Mr Leeworthy said Tasmania has â&#x20AC;&#x153;just released the Three Capes track and no doubt Australian and international walkers will be flocking there taking their tourist dollar with themâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Great Ocean Road walk has proven to very popular with designated camping sites at regular intervals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have right here on the peninsula one of the most beautiful walking tracks in the world â&#x20AC;Ś and it is easy to take it for granted as it is in our own backyard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although there has been a lot of work done in creating a map and website, what we don't have is designated camp sites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What the peninsula walk has over many is that it is a circuit track â&#x20AC;Ś the walker can finish where they have started.â&#x20AC;? Mr Leeworthy is lobbying Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors to back his plans to develop a track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our schoolchildren backpack around Wilsons Promontory and the Great Dividing Range, but this walk is so close and at 100 kilometres in length would prove to be very beneficial and a lot less expensive for the parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Europeans would come in our off season as our winter weather would seem balmy compared with theirs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All we need are designated shelters, toilets and drinking water at convenient distances and the track will be really well used.â&#x20AC;?

Community, government aid to help bushfire victims Continued Page 1 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then the wind changed. We had 10 minutes to get out. The fire was already on our property and there was fire on both sides of the road so we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get away.â&#x20AC;? After managing to drive close to the foreshore they were eventually given the all clear to go the fire station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone mentioned our house had made it through ok. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were so relieved. When we got to the CFA station we found out the truth. Our house was completely gone. We were in shock. Complete shock. When we went to the property there was nothing to salvage. It was completely gone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nightmare, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking it day by day.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, the government announced on Friday that Crib Point residents affected by the Monday 18 January bushfires could be eligible to receive $520 per adult and $260 per child â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or up to $1300 a household â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to help meet immediate

needs, such as emergency food, shelter, clothing, and personal items. The payments provide up to $32,500 per eligible household for clean-up, emergency accommodation, repairs, rebuilding the principal place of residence, and replacing some damaged contents. Also, bushfire victims will be able to arrange personal and financial counselling. Mornington Peninsula Shire and state agencies can seek assistance for the costs of clean-up operations and restoration of essential public assets. Anyone affected by the bushfires and suffering personal hardship and distress should call the Victorian Emergency Recovery Information Line, 1300 799 232. General information about the assistance can be found at disasterassist.gov.au and through the Emergency Relief and Recovery Victoria website, recovery.vic.gov.au or by calling 1300 799 232.

Park opens to swings and roundabouts

Western Port

THE new park at Red Hill opened with a ribbon cutting, speeches and a barbecue, but it was the enjoyment on the faces of children using the playground equipment that proved the worth of the efforts of the Red Hill Community Association to create the park. “It was lovely to hear the squeals of children enjoying the new playground

and see them having such a good time,” Felicity Jackson said. Hamburgers and veggie burgers cooked by volunteers on the barbecue were handed out by members of the 1st Red Hill Scout group. Musician Keith White performed old standards and pop songs and speeches were given by Bunurong Land Council representative Bob

Austin, Nepean MP Martin Dixon, Flinders MP Greg Hunt and the mayor Cr Graham Pittock. Community association president David Maddocks said the opening of the park, playground and war memorial saw a 2008 vision from become a reality in 2016 – “an enormous and lasting achievement”.

Lack of fuel depot â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hampers fire fightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE lack of suitable fuel depots for giant firefighting â&#x20AC;&#x153;air cranesâ&#x20AC;? means the Mornington Peninsula is less well protected against catastrophic bushfires than it could be. The fuel, called AVTUR, is not stored anywhere on the peninsula, meaning the air cranes have to travel back to either Moorabbin or Essendon airports for refuelling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or depend on a road tanker from the refinery at Altona. During the disastrous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but relatively small â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 18 January fires at Crib Point, a tanker was sent from 83 kilometres from Altona to refuel the Erickson water bomber at Tyabb. It was delayed by heavy traffic and is banned from road tunnels. The water bomber crews elected to fly back to Moorabbin to refuel, but were recalled to Tyabb when the road tanker arrived, losing fire-fighting time. The size of the air craneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s payload is described as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fine balanceâ&#x20AC;? between its fuel and water loads â&#x20AC;&#x201C; meaning the less fuel it has to carry the more water it can dump on a fire. On 18 January one house and several outbuildings were destroyed. No lives were lost, but the day could have been worse and fire crews are bracing for more dangerous fires in the future and having the special fuel on the peninsula would give them an advantage. Peninsula Aero Club vice president Jack Vevers said the air crane fighting the Crip Point fire lost â&#x20AC;&#x153;up to two cycles of refuellingâ&#x20AC;? by going to

Moorabbin and Tyabb. He said a peninsula depot for AVTUR fuel was urgently needed. He said an incident at Portsea â&#x20AC;&#x153;a couple of summers agoâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when emergency services helicopters wasted precious minutes flying back to Moorabbin to refuel while searching for a missing woman â&#x20AC;&#x201C; proved his point. Mr Vevers said emergency services helicopters, including police search-and-rescue helicopters monitoring Western Port and southern Port Phillip, would also be able to use the expensive fuel, which would have a six-month use-by date before â&#x20AC;&#x153;going offâ&#x20AC;?. He said it was not up to the airfield to â&#x20AC;&#x153;justify or instigateâ&#x20AC;? development of an AVTUR depot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s [Mornington Peninsula] shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibility,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are just a willing participant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are keen to support the air crane at Tyabb as well as fixed wing and rotary if that would help improve their fire-fighting capabilities here.â&#x20AC;? Cr David Garnock, whose Cerberus Ward was most affected by the 18 January fires, said the shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s municipal emergency management planning committee had asked the aero club to submit a written proposal for the AVTUR depot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not shooting it out of the water. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got legs I will push it, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to the Tyabb airfield to establish the case.â&#x20AC;? Cr Garnock said other considerations included justifying the expense of keeping the fuel here â&#x20AC;&#x153;just to be readyâ&#x20AC;? when the CFA was already experienced in managing its own fuel supplies in emergencies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to hear the CFAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s views. They might be against it.â&#x20AC;?

Council backflip over tip’s future David Harrison david@mpnews.com.au

Eyes on target: Serves can be tested at the Somerville Tennis Club’s open day, this Saturday, 6 February.

Free day on tennis court SOMERVILLE Tennis Club will hold a free tennis day, 1-5pm, Saturday 6 February. President Karyn Dickens said those attending could have a hit with the club pro, pick up some tips and join in on a lesson to get a taste of tennis. “Tennis is fun for the beginner, social player and the up-and-coming club star,” she said. Attractions include a radar gun being used to check service speeds. Prizes and giveaways will go to the fastest server.

In Hit the Target, players test their aim on service. “This is a fun way to practice your serve and challenge your friends. You will also have the chance to win some great prizes,” Ms Dickens said. Those attending can enjoy a social hit with others in the free play sessions and then enjoy a sausage sizzle afterwards with members. Somerville Tennis Club is in Park Lane, Somerville.

A COUNCIL decision to retain Rye tip has been overturned after a searching and sometimes spiteful debate at the year’s first public meeting of Mornington Peninsula councillors. At the height of the disturbance shire governance manager Joe Spiteri advised councillors they should stop their unruly behaviour and return to order – the first such intervention by a governance officer veteran council attendees could recall. The power struggle over shire waste was sparked last September when councillors voted to close the tip and move shire household waste off the peninsula. Then in December they reversed that vote, with opponents of the original decision having the numbers to do so due to a councillor’s illness. Cr Hugh Fraser’s moved to rescind this decision at the 27 January meeting was passed on mayor Graham Pittock’s casting vote after a long and acrimonious debate about the cost versus benefit of the Rye closure. Shire officers including chief executive officer Carl Cowie were questioned closely and at length about their role in the Rye tip deliberations. Councillors opposed to closing the tip argued that each household would have to pay an additional $5060 a year to move waste off the shire and would simply be transferring the shire’s greenhouse gas problem to another council district. Proponents of the closure said the cost to each household would be somewhere closer to $30 and that the environmental and commercial benefits would far outweigh this. The tip is close to the Tootgarook wetlands and

houses. Rubbish blows out of it into the wetlands and on to the nearby properties. Odour from methane, a greenhouse gas, is also a continuing problem. One major result of the vote reversal is that the shire’s policy of carbon neutrality, established in late 2014, is now back on track. Rye tip emits nearly half of the shire’s carbon gases. Its retention would have severely crippled chances of achieving the neutrality goal. Cr Fraser told the chamber that a shire advertisement seeking interest from companies to remove shire waste was worded in such a way that it misled the market. This had, he said, resulted in uninformed industry responses. He also revealed correspondence to him from Cr David Gibb – who has long argued that shire waste should be kept in the shire – that the motion to retain the Rye tip “was drafted by council officers” and “supported by all officers … as the most appropriate option”. These officers included Mr Cowie and the shire chief operating officer, Alison Leighton. Both acknowledged at the meeting this correctly stated their stance. Cr Fraser said he had since been told that officers drafted the recommendation at Cr Gibb’s request and Cr Gibb had been told it was “not an officer recommendation”, he said. This is significant in light of the wording of the advertisement, which stated simply that the shire was “strongly considering” closure. The clear councillor decision was to close Rye tip in mid-2017, leading to Cr Fraser’s charge that the wording of the advertisement did not have “authority from council” – that is, it was at variance with the decision councillors had made. Shire officers, led by the CEO, are required under the Local Government Act to ensure that the decisions of councillors “are implemented without undue delay”.

LETTERS Out of touch Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has 192 kilometres of coastal land to manage, hundreds of square kilometres of pavement to maintain and a serious lack of community infrastructure in some areas. This is where the state government and, I’d reckon, most ratepayers would want our diminishing pool of cash to be spent. Council’s sphere of influence is primarily local and by rights that money should stay here in our community, providing jobs and supressing rate rises. But your councillors, in their collective wisdom and on the casting vote of the mayor Cr Graham Pittock, have decided to spend almost $25 million (about the cost of an aquatic centre) closing the Rye landfill, an unpleasant but highly productive asset that’s been operating since the 1960s. Apparently it’s even more important than carbon neutrality. Shipping waste off the peninsula produces a significant net increase in emissions that’ll make it even harder to achieve atmospheric temperature stabilisation globally. Luckily for us, the emissions will be on some other council’s books. In his [former Treasurer] Joe Hockey moment last meeting, self-appointed governance advisor Cr Hugh Fraser claimed that dumping our waste in some other neighbourhood would cost just “$27 per household per annum – the cost of a pack of cigarettes”. So the next time you find yourself slammed with council charges, just do a Hugh and forgo some of that discretionary spending. It’ll be easy if you come from the top end of town. Vote for change in October, because some councillors have clearly lost touch. Rates will be siphoned away from the basics for unnecessary projects that benefit a favoured few. Only you, the ratepayers, can stand in their way. Cr Andrew Dixon, Briars Ward

Promises off target Once upon a time in Paris our leaders made promises for emission cuts. Are they core or non-core promises?

How can we afford an unlimited budget for war, defence, intelligence, security and anti-terrorism? Are they equal to protecting us against threat as big as global warming? What’s the plan? The main promise was to reduce our emissions to 28 per cent by 2030. Isn’t it sad to just copycat the United States? Except that its end date is 2025 and ours is 2030. Total emissions and population in the US are 10 times bigger than ours and a sensible apples-for-apples comparison can only be done per capita. Emissions are coal, oil and gas burnt inside the country. Australia has a big score already, nearly 30tonnes per capita a year while the US is aspiring to 20. So we’re 50 per cent worse already. This totally ignores our ambition to be world’s biggest exporter of coal and LNG gas. We get wealth but cop no CO2 liability at all from these exports. The explanation from Environment Minister and MP for Flinders Greg Hunt is that for a 50 per cent advantage Australia doesn’t need any cuts at all. The reason claimed is an expected population growth of 50 per cent means emission tonnes divided by more people delivers the 50 per cent magic number. Simple arithmetic means this is 100/150 = 67 per cent actual, or 33 per cent reduction? Don’t you need 200 per cent population growth for 100/200 = 50 per cent reduction? I sympathise with Mr Hunt, who’s overloaded with ministerial responsibilities. With such voracious human appetite for resources of all kinds expecting population growth to deliver emissions reduction is more far-fetched than any fairy story. But will we live happily ever after?

Yeah for Yale To the good residents of Mornington Peninsula. Your local federal Liberal Party member [for Flinders] and Minister for the Environment [Greg Hunt] has stated that the Yale University Environmental Performance Index that is published every two years is "the most credible scientifically based" analysis in the world. The latest index published by Yale now rates Australia at 150th in world rankings on carbon emissions. We are also rated as poor performing in biodiversity, agriculture and forestry. I am looking forward to Mr Hunts explanation. Not. Terry O'Shea, Halls Head, WA

ability to the tune of 10 million. You, Sir, go one better, you’re billing us billions. So, fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. Also, remember, you were at the table when cuts to hospital funding, life-saving early diagnostic services, Gonski (most important education reform), canned 21st century infrastructure fibre to the home NBN (future generations will regret this), cuts to aged pension (claiming heaviest burden on the budget (how offensive to the generation that gifted us our current standard of living), increased cost of prescriptions, planning to cut penalty rates claiming it is so yesterday (it is not when you need to put food on the table or pay the rent), betraying future generations by not taking real action on climate change while shovelling billions to big polluters (may future generations condemn us if we fall for it). See, it is the big picture and how we and future generations are being short changed. So, fellow electors of Flinders, next time you sit in the overcrowded accident and emergency department, GP practice, cannot get a hospital bed, unable to afford life-saving early intervention diagnostic services, your children’s education funding cut, aged pension does not go far, thank the MP for Flinders [Greg Hunt]. May future generations judge us harshly for they will be worse off in every way, healthcare, education, digital technology, living aged pension and living planet than the one we inherited. Shame on us. Evelyn Taylor, Tootgarook

Despite Greg Hunt’s spin and assurances that Australia is doing such a great job of keeping the climate cool, I'm not convinced. His actions surely speak louder than his regular taxpayer-funded mail outs. When will he distance himself from the carbon lobby, big miners and other big business and make decisions on the environment in the interest of the environment, and not just for the next big developer’s cheque that might keep Australia out of recession for a few more months? The approval of new coal mines and coal ports on the Great Barrier Reef are just such an example and will adversely affect one of our greatest natural wonder. Of course all the coal we may send out to be burned in foreign places will greatly contribute to the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. It would be kinder to send solar technology and battery storage to these places and spare them the pollution and consequent sickness and diseases that it brings. After failing to remove some of Tasmania's

World Heritage listed forests from listing, Mr Hunt now looks the other way when the [state] government there is basically turning to police state tactics to afford the loggers preferential access to some of the very good forest and vegetation areas of Tasmania over ordinary citizen. Here in his home state he is also looking the other way when some of the best old forests are decimated by an uncaring government and its agencies. He'll have to start accelerating his tree planting sessions for carbon offsets if he wants to keep to the miserly target he and his government has signed up to in Paris. Australia's greenhouse gas emissions have started growing since the carbon tax was scrapped and direct action was introduced to Australia. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Tip not neutral threat I am writing in response to the eye-catching, but misleading, article “Waste threat to carbon neutrality” (The News 19/1/16). The issue of whether the Rye tip remains open or closed is not a threat to achieving Mornington Peninsula Shire’s goal of carbon neutrality. More worrying is that closing the tip, while resulting in lower reportable carbon emissions for council, would lead to higher actual emissions overall, which doesn’t sound like climate leadership to me. The council's carbon neutral policy outlines how it will ensure that its net emissions are zero annually (an admirable goal). The policy doesn't mandate particular actions to achieve this goal, just that council will pursue “best value, best practice actions” (like switching street lighting to LED, improving energy efficiency and installing solar arrays as outlined in council’s emissions management business case). Whatever action(s) council takes to reduce its emissions, it will inevitably be left with emissions that cannot be avoided, and so, in order to meet the goal of net zero emissions, these unavoidable emissions must be offset. Closing the Rye tip is simply one action that the council could take in order to reduce its carbon emissions. However, the issue of the Rye tip is not a threat to carbon neutrality because any unavoidable emissions will be offset (including legacy emissions from the tip). The real issue here is not that the tip is a threat to carbon neutrality, but that the business case for closing the tip doesn’t measure up. It would cost more money, and generate higher real carbon emissions (the emissions science cares about, not what council reports on), to do so. I encourage everyone, including councillors, to read the supporting documentation, such as council’s own emissions management business case, before final decisions are made on this issue. Erin Simpson, Rye

Down wrong path Mornington Peninsula Shire entrusted a community group to conduct surveys on the proposed Somers pathways scheme [the results of which I believe] were misleadingly favourable to wide concrete paths and against the non-concrete alternative of crushed granite. Why doesn't the council itself hold a survey of Somers ratepayers before making the decision on the $1.5 million pathways scheme? Laurie Batiste, Somers

Recognition for community works Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au HASTINGS resident Aline Burgess has been named Mornington Peninsula Shire’s 2016 Citizen of the Year. The awards were announced at Rosebud Memorial Hall on Australia Day. The shire’s Young Citizen of the Year, Tia McLean, is a year 12 student at Mt Eliza Secondary College, and Event of the Year is Balnarring Community Sustainability Fair, with the award presented to coordinator Pea Saunders. Ms Burgess’s role as foundation secretary of the Peninsula Carer Council in 2004 was said to be a continuation of her tireless advocacy for people with mental illness over 30 years, having moved to Hastings to be near her son who was living independently. “I am grateful and appreciative and accept it on behalf of all the carers on the peninsula,” Ms Burgess said. The Peninsula Carer Council provides support and resource information to carers of people with a mental illness on the peninsula and advocates on their behalf under her mantle: “No carer is ever left alone”. Ms Burgess’s citation reads: “Through her selflessness and compassion for others, she has raised public awareness and understanding of people with mental illness, their families and carers.” Peninsula Carer Council is now said to be recognised locally, state-wide and nationally, with a monthly drop-in centre, web page, 1300 number linked to Ms Burgess’s mobile and 154 members on its books. “My job is to refer people to members’ representatives on the committees,” she said. Recalling the early days of the PCC, Ms Burgess said its first piece of hardware was a filing cabinet. “We gradually built up a library and

then received assistance from the state government and we were away,” she said, of the carers who “get together and have a lot of laughs”. Myths and misunderstandings surrounding mental illness clouded its true nature, Ms Burgess said. “It’s a health issue rather than a criminal issue,” she said, citing its causes as possibly genetic, drugs, a breakdown, or mental stress. “People are now realising that a quick dose of medication is not the answer; rather there’s the need for solid investment in the causes and treatment.” Summing up the carers’ attitude to mental illness, she quipped: “We are not waiting for the storm to pass, we are learning to dance in the rain.” Young Citizen of the Year Tia McLean lives in Langwarrin and is a member of the Mornington Peninsula Shire Youth Advisory Group. She says the award has stirred her passion for community work. Tia officiated at the opening of the Mornington Youth Centre, hosting the official ceremony section and making a speech on behalf of young people. She helped make a short film which was submitted to last year’s Mornington Peninsula Shire Youth Services youth film festival and was funded by the Rotary Club of Mt Eliza to attend the Magic Moments camp, Sydney, which brings together outstanding young leaders from all over Australia. Her citation said Tia had shown “strong leadership” in advocating for better mental health among the peninsula’s young people. She organised a peninsula-wide youth summit that brought together students from various schools to discuss four main topics which affect her fellow students and friends. They are mental illness, body image, nutrition and bullying. Her ambition is to be a social worker. She has an interest in working with children who have suffered through family violence. Tia organised funding for the day through

Mt Eliza Bendigo Bank, Mornington Peninsula Shire and the Rotary Club of Mt Eliza, and also arranged buses from Budget Rent-a-Car to transport the students free of charge. Balnarring Community Sustainability Fair – named Event of the Year – raises funds for Balnarring Primary School’s community wetlands and sustainability programs. School staff and parents organised the fair in November 2012 to “inform, educate and inspire the wider community to work towards a more sustainable future”. More than 1800 people attended the October 2015 event that showcased 17 sustainable school stalls and about 50 stalls from other sustainability areas. More than $15,000 was raised for school programs. Art teacher Pea Saunders, who coordinates the fair, said its original aim was to raise money to support the school’s environment-and-wetlands focus and to showcase what it does in being sustainable. “It has now become integral to the children’s education and something which they can follow through all their lives,” she said. “They pick up on it at school and then talk to their parents and things start happening at home.” Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Graham Pittock congratulated the winners and nominees. “Our award winners are a wonderful example of the warmth, talent and creativity within our community,” he said. “These awards recognise people and events that make a real difference to the lives of our fellow community members and the general spirit of the peninsula. “On behalf of my fellow councillors and the community I extend a sincere thank you for the work you do within the communities of the Mornington Peninsula to make it such a special place for everyone.”

Women patrol for safe Valentine’s Day AN all-female patrol on Valentine’s Day, Sunday 14 February will – for the first time – protect swimmers at Gunnamatta surf beach. The “Pink Patrol” – part of the celebrations for the lifesaving club’s 50th year – recognises women and their contribution to lifesaving. Patrol captain Jill Douglas will lead the team on the day. She’s proud to be part of a “first” in the club’s history. “I’m really looking forward to Valentine’s Day,” the chief instructor said. “We have some very experienced and dedicated girls who can’t wait to team up and show a bit of ‘girl power’. “It is a day of love and we are all out here doing what we love: the beach, the surf and keeping them safe. “Gunn [Gunnamatta] has a proud history in surf lifesaving: our club has won the state patrol efficiency award more than any other club, and we perform about a third of Victoria’s rescues each year. “All beaches and waterways have their dangers. Gunn has its own but we make sure we

set patrols up in the safest possible area and we monitor it carefully. “It’s an honour to lead this patrol in our 50th birthday year.” Gunnamatta SLSC Club captain Patrick Murphy said the capability of the Pink Patrol were impressive. “Collectively its members hold all of SLSA’s awards and qualifications as well as being powerful surf swimmers and rescue board paddlers,” he said. Women and girls were permitted to join Surf Life Saving Australia as active members in 1980. Gunnamatta had two female lifesavers from the very first days and this quickly grew over the following summers. Now, 40 of Gunnamatta's 100 active members are female, ranging in age from 13 to over 50. They hold positions such as chief instructor, patrol captain and rescue boat drivers – some of the most senior roles in the club. Mr Murphy said the female patrol’s message was: “If we can see you, we can save you.” Steve Taylor

The Western Port Whisperer WHAT would we do without our emergency services? This has been asked by locals repeatedly over the last year, as the Western Port townships have been hit by various bushfires and storms. All our emergency services are amazing, but particularly our volunteer emergency services. They give up their spare time to do what they do. The next time you see these people, don’t give them grief, but only the thanks they truly deserve. *** WHEN something like a bushfire happens in a small community, people tend to ask ‘Who’ and ‘Why’ would someone do this to our community? While it is understandable people ask this, there are some questions which need to be asked and answered too. These include: 1. Why don’t we have Neighbourhood Safer Places (NSP’s) in towns like Crib Point, Stony Point, HMAS Cerberus, Bittern, Hastings, Tyabb, Somerville, Baxter, Tuerong and Moorooduc? The safety of people should not be determined by the bay we live on (Port Phillip or Western Port), our postcode or the Socio Economic Status. Everyone has the right to feel safe regardless of these factors, and it is the responsibility of the Shire and other bodies to assure this. On this issue, the Whisperer gives a score of 0 out of 10. And; 2. Why was the Relief Centre for the Crib Point bushfire set up 15 kilometers away in Somerville? Many people don’t drive, may not be able to travel far (ie: elderly and disabled) and didn’t have access to the services provided. Why couldn’t the Relief Centre be set up in Hastings (the Hall or the Commu-

nity Hub), Bittern (the Hall or the Stadium) or Balnarring (which not only has a Hall, but the only NSP for a 15 kilometre radius to Crib Point)? *** $278,000 is a lot of money to spend on anything, let alone celebrations on Australia Day. It is disappointing that if you wanted to experience a day of entertainment provided by the Shire, the Western Port towns were not the place to be. There were some basic activities in Hastings (which paled in comparison to the carnivals, street parades and fun runs of the Port Phillip towns), but if you lived outside of Hastings, you apparently don’t like community events. *** SPEAKING of major events in Western Port, the Western Port Festival (19th- 21st February) is not far away at all. Now in its 47th year, it is amazing this festival continues to operate, despite being completely ran by a volunteer committee who organise all the activities, permits and administration of the event. Also note that while the event is sponsored by the Shire, it is not ran by them. The event is given less money by the Shire than other smaller festivals in the Port Phillip townships. The Western Port Festival has a theme commemorating the 950th Anniversary of the Battle of Hastings this year. The Whisperer thinks this theme for 2016 is appropriate, as putting this event together must be a ‘battle’ in itself. *** HEARD a whisper? Let the Whisperer know: westernportwhisperer@gmail.com

LIVING DESIGN With the harsh Australian weather conditions, one thing that really suffers is the old door and window frames of the family home. That’s why a couple of switched on lads decided to bring Living Design Double Glazing to the Mornington Peninsula. Living Design manufacture the best REHAU German engineered UPVC Windows and doors available in Australia, and are the only REHAU Heritage Double Hung manufacturer in Australia. “We locally manufacture our windows and doors at our factory and we welcome visitors to come in and see the extensive range of affordable products,” said Kim Larmour, of Living Design. “The windows and doors are high performance, maintenance free and double glazed. If your

windows are rotted, it’s the perfect time to get the boys to come out and do a free quote. The REHAU windows and door frames are perfect as replacements for your tired old windows and doors. They maximise energy efficiency, sound proof and significantly reduce noise, keep in heating and cooling, and you will never have to paint again.” Specifically designed for the Australian climate, REHAU is non-flammable, internally glazed as standard, enhance security, non-corrosive, dust proof, energy efficient, cyclone rated and weather proof, and have a 10 year unconditional guarantee including installation. “Give us a call to do a free measure and quote, or come into the showroom and check out the extensive range, so you can understand fully the product range and its benefits,” said Kim. Living Design Double Glazing was established in July last year by Simon Craig, Del and Kim Larmour, who are all highly skilled in the industry, with Simon a REHAU Manufacturer since 1988, and Del a qualified carpenter since 1994. “We totally understood the benefits of the product having come from Europe and growing up in Scotland, moving to Australia about 10 years ago. We knew the system would be perfect in the Australian climate and have already got incredible feedback from people who have replaced windows and doors,” said Simon and Del. “It is great being able to provide a high performance German engineered window and door system that was perfect for the Australian climate. REHAU has

tested their window systems in Australia and they are designed specifically for the Australian climate.” Unlike many imported brands, Living Design Double Glazing Windows & Doors are Australian made and designed specifically for the Australian climate, so assured to withstand weather extremes.

Q REHABILITATION HOSPITAL

SPECIALISED TREATMENT TECHNIQUES ST JOHN of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital offers additional specialist services â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all under the one roof. Our comprehensive rehabilitation programs offer a wide range of services including Rocktape and Real time Ultrasound. Rocktape: Rocktape is a brand of kinesiology tape that is used by physiotherapists to treat injuries and pain. Unlike traditional tape that binds and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stretch, Rocktape is engineered to mimic the human skin. It can be applied in a variety of ways to achieve the following therapeutic effects. When Rocktape is applied with

little or no stretch on the tape but lots of stretch on the tissue it causes the skin to form convulsions and wrinkle. This creates a biomechanical lifting mechanism that decompresses the tissue just under the skin which creates a more normal Ă&#x20AC;XLGG\QDPLFLQWKHWDSHGDUHD 6ZHOOLQJLVEHWWHUDEOHWRĂ&#x20AC;RZRXW of the area, taking with it toxins ZKLFKUHVXOWIURPLQĂ&#x20AC;DPPDWLRQDQG injury. Blood has less resistance to enter the area bringing with it more oxygen and nutrients vital for healing and recovery and pain is reduced through reducing the compression on the nerve endings lying between the muscle and skin. This property is being used in the management of acute soft tissue injuries, joint replacements and fractures.

Bruised Leg

When Rocktape is applied with more stretch it can be used to support areas where tissue has been strained, torn, weakened or lengthened. By adding more elastic recoil to the taped area, functional stability and tissue â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;snapbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; are enhanced. Helping to unload painful tissue in conditions like tennis elbow, achilles tendonoses and plantarfascitis. Real time Ultrasound: Real time ultra sound (RTUS) provides a moving image of our deep muscles. The equipment used in RTUS is non-invasive and pain free. A small ultra sound head & water soluble gel are used over the muscle being examined, the same technique that

is used in pregnancy for baby scans. Ultra sound uses high frequency waves & their echoes to produce an image. Most commonly we look at deep DEGRPLQDOPXVFOHWKHGHHSÂżEUHVLQ WKHOXPEDUVSLQHDQGWKHSHOYLFĂ&#x20AC;RRU muscles. These muscles normally work in unison with the diaphragm & other spinal stabilising muscles to provide â&#x20AC;&#x153;coreâ&#x20AC;? stability. Back pain, poor posture, surgery or pregnancy can result in a loss of adequate control of these muscles.

giving the patient an immediate & visual biofeedback. REFERRALS: A specialist or GP referral is required Inpatient and Outpatient Referrals can be sent to: St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital 255-265 Cranbourne Road, Frankston 3199 Fax: (03) 9788 3304

RTUS can be used as a training tool to help recruit & provide the correct action of these muscles. Being able to see the muscles as they work leads to a better understanding of their function & how to activate them â&#x20AC;&#x201C;

THIS immaculate two-storey residence with bay glimpses is set within private low-maintenance gardens that embody relaxation whilst offering multiple zones for refined alfresco entertaining. Cocooned within a private street, close to Fishermans Beach, this striking residence creates a grand first impression with a decked walkway and double timber doors framing the entrance. There is a separate study or fourth bedroom to the right as you enter, and a splendid formal lounge opposite features integrated cabinetry and opens out to a wrap-around deck with an undercover lounge area and adjoining courtyard dining that is shielded

within the private garden surrounds. Large windows flood the interior with natural light and bring the garden view right to you. There is internal access from the double garage via the laundry and two established bedrooms – one with a walk-in robe, share the downstairs bathroom. Upstairs, and the main open-plan living and dining room is positioned to frame the bay with café doors opening to a glass framed wrap-around balcony that has a remote awning for shade, and with the sound of the waves and the blue waters of the bay in the background you have the ultimate sound track for summer dining. The glamorous kitchen is well-

equipped with a commercial grade stove by Ilve, there is a stainless-steel dishwasher, twin sinks that look out to the bay and dazzling stone benchtops. The luxurious main bedroom is also privately ensconced on this upper level and features a stunning, fully-tiled ensuite with spa, and a large walk-in robe. Impeccably detailed and beautifully appointed throughout – the polished floorboards across both levels are amazing – this home works wonderfully well with seamless integration between the indoor and outdoor zones ensuring both levels of the home act as one.

Do you suffer foot, knee or leg pain? OUR feet and legs are vital for mobility and balance and are the basis of most of our daily activities, but we don’t really appreciate all the work they do until something goes wrong. To help you start the year off on a good foot, we asked the experts at Foot & Leg Pain Clinics to shed some light on some of the most common foot and leg concerns and things to be aware of:  The most common foot & leg concerns include: knee pain, injuries and arthritis; shin pain; ankle pain, forefoot pain and heel pain (often misdiagnosed as plantar fasciitis).  Many conditions are misdiagnosed and incorrectly treated, so its important to find an experienced musculoskeletal or sports podiatrist to assist.  Bad foot posture can continually pull our posture out of alignment, which can contribute to postural aches and pains.  Early symptoms for diabetes, arthritis, nerve and circulatory problems often show themselves in the feet.  Scientific research clearly demonstrates the direct effect chronic foot pain can have upon both physical and mental health, partially due to the high amount of nerve endings in the feet.  Traditional treatments options such as cortisone, long-term anti-inflammatory medications and joint arthroscopies are now outdated and have been proven to delay healing and actually cause further tissue damage.  A new era of medicine is now taking over from the flawed pharmaceutical approach – cellular and biological medicine is providing us with natural, safe and effective medical alternatives and has been adopted into mainstream medical practice. Prolotherapy, PRP (platelet rich plasma) and stem cell therapy are assisting

many to avoid surgery, joint replacements and eliminate the prolonged use of medications.  Foot and leg problems left untreated usually get worse, however most foot & leg concerns can be addressed relatively easily and effectively with appropriate treatment. “People often endure painful conditions for far too long. They assume nothing can be done or do not receive the appropriate treatments vital for successful, long-term healing,” says Foot & Leg Pain Clinics founder and chief Podiatrist, Dr. Paul Dowie. “With the use of new cellular medicine we can now aid pain, increase mobility, repair soft tissue and regenerate joints to assist injuries and arthritic concerns, naturally.” If you need assistance for any foot or leg pain, Foot & Leg Pain Clinics have convenient clinic locations in Mt. Eliza, Rosebud, Moorabbin and Berwick. Mention this article when booking for $50 OFF initial consultations. Call 1300 328 300

FREE 30 DAY HEARING AID TRIAL* The link between hearing Get back loss and dementia ACCORDING to Alzheimer’s Australia, there are more than 342,800 Australians living with dementia. The number is expected to increase to 900,000 by 2050. The overwhelming impact of dementia on affected individuals and the burden imposed on their families is unfortunately a reality for too many. Dementia is a term used to describe a large group of illnesses that causes a progressive decline in a person’s memory, intellect, rationality, social skills and physical function. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia, caused by a progressive degeneration of brain cells. Any person can develop Alzheimer’s disease, however it is more common in older age. Numerous studies have shown that individuals with hearing loss are more likely to be diagnosed with dementia and reduced cognitive function due to decreased signals to the brain. Researchers have suggested that this is due to the reduced social interaction that occurs with hearing loss. ‘Blindness separates people from things, deafness separates people from people’ – Immanuel Kant. Hearing loss can cause social isolation, stress, embarrassment and depression. With the modern era of hearing aids to assist managing hearing loss, it is only logical what the next step involves. With better hearing, the individual feels more connected to their family, friends and the community. Hearing aids and devices have assisted with making social isolation a thing of

Protecting teeth with a mouthguard SPORTING accidents are one of the most common causes of dental injury. Every year thousands of people, including children, are treated for dental injuries that could have been avoided or minimised by wearing a protective, custom-fitted mouthguard. Dental Prosthesis Tony Finn from Diamond Dentures explains the benefits of a well-fitted mouthguard. Why do you need a mouthguard? Damaged or knocked out teeth, broken jaws and cut lips can be sustained when playing sport. Wearing a custom-fitted mouthguard helps to absorb and spread the impact of a blow to your face, which might otherwise result in an injury to your mouth or jaw. Dental injuries can result in time off school or work to recover, can be painful and disfiguring,

and may involve lengthy and complex dental treatment. The cost of an injury to your teeth or jaw far exceeds the cost of a custom-fitted mouthguard. One area parents may not know is that a custom fitted mouthguard can quite often reduce the effects of concussion When should I wear a mouthguard? Custom-fitted mouthguards should be worn whilst playing and training for any sport where there is a possibility of contact to the face. These sports can include hockey, netball, baseball, basketball and even skateboarding and skiing. Just like having the correct shoes and sporting equipment, all people playing these sports need to wear a custom-fitted mouthguard. Diamond Dentures is at 190 High Street, Hastings. Phone 5979 3007.

Further particulars will be given later. The same firm will also sell on Wednesday, 15th March, on the property, the whole of the magnificent furnishings of the above residence, a catalogue of which may be obtained from the auctioneers shortly. *** DEATH of Jas Crosskell- An old

pioneer. On the evening, 21st January Mr James Crosskell, one of the last of the early pioneers, passed away aged 84 years. He was born on Rhode Island, USA, and came to Australia after hearing of the gold rush. After working for some years for Wren Bros, he bought their business, and took in with him his brother-in-law (the late Mr H. R Prosser) and the late Mr T. Ritchie; later on Mr J. D. Box and the late Mr P. Renouf joined the firm. The Company was known as the Frankston Fish Co. (Crosskell, Ritchie and Co.) Mr Crosskell still visited the different fishing places, and ran the fish up to Melbourne, while his partners attended to the sale. Their place of business was in the old market which stood on the site of the present Flinders Street station. As trade grew the boat had to be relinquished; and fish carts were used. Most of the old residents of Frankston will remember the fish carts and their three horses, and later, the wagons that ran through from Hastings to Melbourne in time for the 5 a.m. market. These vehicles were driven by the partners themselves, who at that period led a very strenuous life. The members took a keen interest in Frankston itself. They started the first bakery and butchery in the township; they were among the original shareholders of the “Mornington Standard” Newspaper Co., and they held large interests in a brick works that flourished near the landslip in the boom time. After the boom the firm was dissolved, and

Mr Crosskell returned to the sea, and even visited Western Australia. He remained at this for some years, but his health failed, and he retired, living quietly until his death. He was twice married, and left issue by both marriages. He joined the Frankston I.O.R. in 1871, and at the time of his death was the oldest Rechabite on the Mornington Peninsula. For many years the meetings of the local Tent were held in his house, and at different periods he held most of the offices in the Order. He joined the Frankston Methodist Church in 1869, and continued a member till his death. He was also the oldest trustee of the church. Although Mr Crosskell made no boast of his religious beliefs, he lived a life consistent with his profession. He was a good neighbor, generous, I helpful and kind. No one ever appealed to him in vain. He was a man of great determination, and when he made up his mind no power on earth could make him change it. His last hours were quiet and peaceful, and he gradually slipped his earthly cable and trimmed his sails to the breezes of the unseen world. He was almost the last- if not the last -of the sturdy pioneers, and Frankston is the poorer through his death. He left behind him an unsullied name, and his descendents can ever regard with pride and affection the memory of their sturdy and upright ancestor. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 5 February, 1916

FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

True tales of a ‘tin eater’ By Stuart McCullough SECRETLY, I am ashamed. I watch others eat their meals with knives and forks, and feel something of a pang, wishing that I, too, could accept the conventional approach to eating a meal. But it’s too late for me. Years of training mean that I must take the road less travelled and consume my meals, not at the table with a fistful of cutlery, but in the pantry and directly from the jar. For I choose to consume my ingredients not in combination but one at a time. For I am a tin eater, plain and simple. The life of a tin eater is one filled with subterfuge and stealth. Having two brothers and two sisters meant there was very little I could do that escaped detection. For some reason, siblings feel oddly compelled to announce everything you do at a volume somewhere just below “air raid siren” and a pitch slightly beneath dog whistle. You could be forgiven for thinking in such a harsh environment that I’d be unable to get away with anything, but that would be to underestimate the inexhaustible nature of human ingenuity. We’d be sitting together in the lounge room, all five us, watching a movie. Without so much as a word, I’d attempt to slip out of my chair. I say “attempt” as the seat in question was not the conventional four-legged variety but a beanbag. It’s a scientific fact that getting out of a beanbag is akin to attempting to break a bear hug executed by an actual bear. You can no more slip out of a beanbag

PAGE 42

than you can throw a tennis ball and land it on the moon. Getting out of the upholstered, velour quicksand required you to roll over several times to the floor before pushing yourself to your feet. At first, my brothers and sisters would say nothing. I would then make my way to the kitchen and begin a process I like to think of as “visual grazing”. This involved a full reconnaissance of the pantry.

Western Port News 2 February 2016

For many families, the pantry is an expansive area that permits you to observe all the food your family has to offer. Ours, however, was something of an afterthought, squeezed into a space that was originally intended for a broom cupboard. The first challenge, however, was to open the door without alerting my siblings. I am sure that we possessed oil. Given that we had a shed that preserved everything including a used

plaster cast from when I broke my leg, there was bound to be a can of WD40 somewhere. And yet, for some reason, the hinges of our pantry were forever squeaky. To open it was to unleash a sound that resembled a choir of mice after someone had poured a bucket of cold water on them. Perhaps that was exactly the point. No matter where our parents were, they could instantly tell when the pantry was being violated. My father could be off in the back paddock and using a chainsaw, but would cease as the sound of a mouselike chorale drifted across the valley. If it was impossible to put anything past someone in the back paddock, there was no hope of eluding those in the living room. Using the kind of care normally associated with detonating an explosive, I would begin to prise open the pantry. No matter how careful I was, it would never fail to emit a tortured squeal. At the very first note, there would be a challenge from my brothers and sisters. The words “what are you doing?” rang out like a demand to stand and deliver. In truth, they knew full well what I was up to. The only thing more ridiculous than the question was my standard response of “nothing” when, in fact, nothing couldn’t be further from the truth. When faced with all manner of foodstuffs, most people would be tempted to create some kind of snack or meal. I, on the other hand, thought this would simply delay the inevitable. Rather than mess around with the

black magic that is actual cooking, I preferred to jemmy the lid off various containers and eat directly from the tin. The trick was to complete stuffing my mouth before curiousity got the better of one of my brothers or sisters who, having failed to be satisfied by my earlier response of “nothing”, would decide to come to the kitchen to personally investigate. Milo was a particular favourite. Truth be told, I ate more of it from the tin than I ever did as a drink. Sometimes our parents would mess with the formula and purchased drinking chocolate instead. Although the drinking chocolate was exquisitely tasty, the power was much finer and meant that if you were to breathe in at the wrong time, your throat would convulse, causing you to choke and a small cloud of chocolate drinking powder to burst over your lips like an eruption from a long-dormant volcano. Truth be told, some of the finest meals I ever ate were consumed behind the pantry door. It’s something I’ve since given up. Whether that’s because I grew out of it or because our current pantry doesn’t have a door, and is all the less thrilling as a result, I truly couldn’t say. Whenever I go to a restaurant, I am often left to lament that the meals arrive fully prepared and guests are denied the elicit joy that comes from sampling the ingredients individually while the chef is in the back paddock. www.stuartmccullough.com

Intensity lifting in Provincial PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully WITH just three rounds remaining in MPCA Provincial cricket before finals, the intensity of round nine has seen some serious game changers after the first day’s play. There is still a mad scramble for a place in the top four with at least seven teams vying for third and fourth. At this stage, despite two more rounds to follow round nine, it seems top of the table Peninsula Old Boys and second-placed Crib Point have done enough to play finals. With seven teams staking claims for third and fourth place, every run and every wicket is critical. It also means that there is no easy ride to get into the finals.

Only Sorrento get an easy game on the way home, playing Rye in the final round. However, they have drawn the short straw because they only get them in a one-day match, which makes life really difficult to achieve an outright win for maximum points. Sorrento were in all sorts of trouble after they batted against Pines on Saturday, making just 116. Other than Bobby Wilson with 38, the Sorras struggled. Craig Entwhistle was superb for the Piners with 5/41 and Pat Jackson claimed 3/27. However, the crafty Anthony Blackwell turned the tables on the visitors and had them on 4/39 at stumps. Blackwell himself had 4/16. It seems there’s plenty more cricket in this one.

Mornington didn’t fare much better than the Sorras, bowled out for 107 against Crib Point. Glenn Barclay was at his very best yet again for the Pies with 5/40, while Matty Blake chimed in with 3/22 from his 12 overs. The visitors are 0/11 in reply. Somerville is in the box seat against Moorooduc. The Eagles won the toss on Saturday and sent the visitors into bat. Ben Williams top scored for the Ducs with 29 while Mathew Lonsdale got his opportunity in the First IX and succeeded with 21. Michael Whincup made a cameo at the end with 21, to get the Ducs to 133. Matty Roach was superb with the pill once again for the Eagles, snaring 5/23 from 18 overs, while Jack

Kennedy claimed 2/35. In reply, Somerville is cruising after five overs at 0/25. Langwarrin has given Peninsula Old Boys some work to do, setting them 267 for victory. The Kangas batted the best it has all season, thanks largely to new kid on the block, Joel Bateman, who is in scintillating form. He scored his highest First IX score on Saturday of 74, while cousin and assistant coach Jake Prosser scored 61 and the evergreen Simon McEvoy opened with 40. Jonny Forest was the pick of the Old Boys’ bowlers with 5/85. Baxter and Long Island have had many great battles over the journey and this round is no different. Baxter batted first on Saturday.

Thanks largely to Chris Brittain, with a superb 122, they were able to score 217. Joe Rule also opened with 34. Greg Lamb wound back the clock and picked up 4/31 from 14 overs. Daniel Warwick (11) Ben Matters (duck) and Ben Brittain (duck) were all run out. Mount Eliza will be looking for an outright win against Rye after scoring 9/249 on Saturday. Despite the fact they have no chance of playing finals, the Mounties would no doubt like to finish higher than second last. Justin Grant scored 88 for the Mounties on Saturday while Keith Briggs hit 73. Rye 16-year-old Billy Swayne was the best of the bowlers with 4/25 from four overs.

Top of the table clash in balance DISTRICT By IT Gully THE match we have all been waiting to see in District cricket, top of the ladder Red Hill versus second placed Baden Powell, is shaping-up to be a nail biter. In what many believe is the preview to the District grand final, both teams head into the final day of the match with genuine claims that they are in the box seat. For mine, Red Hill is the side with the runs on the board, albeit 200, and must be fancied from here. On Saturday at Overport Rd, the Hillmen won the toss and batted first. Simon Dart top scored with 55 and Brent Martin was solid again with 33 in the middle order. The real bonus for the Hillmen was the unbeaten 40 runs from experienced keeper Nick Esipoff, helping the visitors to 9/200 from their 80 overs. Ryan Barnett (3/60 from 24 overs) and Michael Ballard (3/39 from 17 overs) were the best of the Braves’ bowlers, while Rhys Elmi helped himself to 2/56 from 18 overs. Sixth-placed Heatherhill is locked in an enthralling battle with thirdplaced Pearcedale. With just 12 points (one game) separating the sides on the ladder, the Hills will go into the second day of the match with their noses in front. Pearcedale batted first on Saturday and were dismissed for 151. Chris Dew top scored with an unbeaten 64, while the returning Shane Maggs was next best with 18. Jake Theobald continued his stellar season with 4/14 from 8.4 overs for Heatherhill. The Hills batted the final 27 overs of the day and will resume on day two at 2/74, with teenager Tyler Neal on 37* and Theobald yet to score. Carrum will be looking to end Delacombe Park’s season as they defend 9/265. Whilst the Lions are no chance to play finals, the Parkers still have a slight sniff, just one game outside the top four. Hayden Moulton top scored for the Lions with 56, while Josh Dent scored 35 and Jake D’Atri 33. A number of other batsmen got starts for the visitors also.

PAGE 46

Dean Blight was the pick of the Parkers’ bowlers with 4/60. Main Ridge and Seaford Tigers are in a battle for pride more than anything else. Neither side can play finals. The Ridge made 208 on Saturday with Travis Barker top scoring with 54 and Ed Aarons hitting 32. Gareth Wyatt also scored 30. The Tigers’ 17-year-old Max Watters was outstanding, opening the bowling for his side with Matty Meagher and snagging 5/56 from 19.2 overs. In reply, the Tigers are 1/17. Mt Martha has set Flinders a monster total of 321 to chase down in their match. The Sharks are currently in fourth place on the ladder with a number of teams breathing down their neck. Mitchel Darville scored his second century this season (the first was against Boneo in round four), opening the innings with 122. Tim Moran hit 52 and Matt Pollock contributed his second highest score of the year of 45. Tom Clements and Shane Beggs each claimed three wickets for the Sharks. In reply, Flinders is 0/16, surviving the final five overs of the day.

Hot battles in Sub-District SUB-DISTRICT

Yabbies united: Tyabb will field junior football and netball teams this season including a girls football team for the first time in the club’s history. Picture: Angie Underwood

‘Yabbie Nation’ expanding DO you kick like a girl? Good! Tyabb Junior Football Club wants you to join its new girls football team this year. Girls have been keen participants at Tyabb Auskick for several years and Tyabb Juniors is offering girls a chance to take to the footy field in competitive games for the first time in the club’s history this season. The club has kicked off a social media campaign with the hashtag #yabbienation to spread the word about the club’s expansion ambitions for the year ahead. There are three divisions – junior, intermediate and youth girls – and Tyabb hopes to field a girls football team in all three competitions. Club president Dean Underwood said Tyabb is on the lookout for female football and netball talent with the club also fielding a junior netball team this season for the first time.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the interest we’ve had since word got out that the Yabbies will be field girls football teams but we’re always looking for more players,” he said. Tyabb’s senior netball team has been a dominant force in recent years and its 2014 Premiership team went through the whole season undefeated. “The introduction of junior netball is the ideal pathway for netballers to become part of the wonderful Tyabb netball family,” Mr Underwood said. Registration day to join the Yabbies football and netball teams is on Sunday 7 February, 11am-3pm at Bunguyan Reserve, Tyabb. Training sessions are held at 5pm on Wednesday evenings at Tyabb Central Recreation Reserve, Tyabb. Call club president Dean Underwood on 0409 117 327 or secretary Michelle Murtagh on 0423 901 033 or email tyabbjfc@mail.com for further details.

By IT Gully THERE are three tremendous battles going on in MPCA Sub-District cricket in round nine and all eyes will be on their results at 6pm this Saturday. Sixth-placed Frankston YCW is playing host to fifth-placed Tootgarook, thirdplaced Rosebud is hosting fourth-placed Carrum Downs and Balnarring and Ballam Park are hoping to keep their slim finals hopes alive as they do battle. The Knights and the Saints are currently a game and a half outside of the top four and a loss in round nine would end their season. As it stands, Balnarring needs a miracle on day two to have any chance of winning. Ballam Park batted first on Saturday and made 249, thanks largely to 98 from Zac Clements and 40 from Callum Savio. The Knights were in some strife at 4/68 before Clements and Savio were joined together at the crease. Tyler Wilton was the best of the Saints’ bowlers with 3/47. In reply, the visitors crumbled to 4/38 at stumps. Clements has 3/15 from seven overs. Carrum Downs has set Rosebud 190 for victory in their clash at Olympic Park. The Cougars won the toss and batted first with keeper Leon McConnell opening the batting and top scoring with 46. Ryan Lynch scored 32 and Nathan Phillips hit 26. Billy Quigley was the best of the

Rosebud bowlers with 4/36 from 19 overs while Pat Nagel snared 3/34 from 20 overs with the new ball. Brian Doughty chimed in with 3/43. The Buds are 0/2 in reply. Frankston YCW would have been pretty happy after bowling Tootgarook out for 143 in 71 overs. Lai Leaunoa was on fire with 4/52, while Andrew Kuitson was still at it with 3/20 from 18 overs. Scott Sterling top scored for the Frogs with 21. However, the YCW batsmen couldn’t replicate the good work of the bowlers and at stumps, were in real strife at 3/5. With no Jason Bedford in this game, the Stonecats appear to be up against it. Matty Whelan has all three wickets and finished with figures of 3/4. Dromana all-rounder Aaron Kaddatz appears to be on the verge of winning a game single-handedly yet again, having top scored with 77 in his team’s match against Tyabb and snaring 2/13 from eight overs. The Hoppers scored 211 in 60 overs on Saturday with Mark Whitehead scoring 34. Tyabb is 3/36 in reply. Hastings will be looking to shore up second place on day two of its match against Skye. The Blues made 217 with Luke Hewitt top scoring with an unbeaten 56 and little brother Jake hitting 37. Timmy Birch also scored 34. In reply, Skye is 1/9.
