Pokies back in spotlight By Neil Walker KINGSTON Council may update its electronic gaming policy for the first time since 2002 in a bid to curb the negative impact of poker machines on the community. Council is keen for the Kingston community to have its say on a draft policy that aims to address issues surrounding problem gambling. Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation data states the City of Kingston’s 17 gaming venues

had 956 pokies machines as of June last year. Kingston has 8.51 gaming machines per 1000 adults, higher than the 6.22 average across metro Melbourne and 6.45 ratio for Victoria as a whole. Kingston has the sixth highest number of electronic gaming machines out of 79 Victorian local government areas. Kingston mayor Ron Brownlees said council did not oppose residents and visitors playing pokies but acknowledged that problem gambling was an

issue for a minority of gamblers. “Problem gamblers are responsible for a significant proportion of gaming machine losses,� Cr Brownlees said. “Issues associated with problem gambling include depression and suicide, family breakups, poverty and crime, which can affect the whole community�. VCGLR data reveals $78,986,274 was spent on gaming machines gambling in the 2012-13 financial year. Over $86.5 million was spent in 2011-

12. The new electronic gaming policy proposed by council includes a range of options, including no future support for more gaming machines in council owned or managed venues and the refusal of sponsorship for council events by organisations or individuals mainly associated with the gambling industry. Kingston Residents’ Association president Maureen Lim said the group “wholeheartedly� supported the council’s proposed stance on gaming machines.

“We are not completely opposed to EGMs, but we have enough in Kingston,� Ms Lim said. KRA is urging people to get involved and provide feedback since “so many in the community are already affected by problem gambling�. The draft policy is available for comment until 4 October.

Parkdale teen to captain schoolboys JUNIOR golfer Brett Coletta has been named captain of the National Schoolboys Team. The 17-year-old Parkdale Secondary College student won the prestigious title by coming top of the table based on tournament rankings in six states nationwide. Professional golfers Adam Scott, Geoff Ogilvy and Stuart Appleby have all been National Schoolboys Team captain early in their careers. Brett is a member of Sandhurst Golf Club and won its senior championship last year, against golfers of all ages. The teen plays off a handicap of three and lives near Sandhurst golf course, giving him the opportunity to keep his game sharp. “I practice at Sandhurst and Woodlands golf course most days,” Brett said. He began playing golf at the age of ten, but soon got into the swing of things. “At first it was just having a few hits, but I started getting serious about it when I was about 13 years old,” he said. Living so close to a top-quality golf course and dedicating hours each week to practice has certainly paid off for the youngster. Recent tournament wins include unprecedented back-to-back wins at the Stuart Appleby junior golf Signature Tournament in the Yarra Valley. Aiming high: Parkdale Secondary College student Brett Coletta has been named caption of the national schoolboys golf team. Picture: Gary sissons

Dreyfus survives Labor rout

Winners and losers: Labor MP Mark Dreyfus (centre) celebrates retaining the seat of Isaacs with his team of supporters despite his party losing its grip on power in Saturday’s federal election. Picture: Gary Sissons

tional Disability Insurance Scheme and Better Schools funding. Liberal Party opponent Garry Spencer was disappointed that the seat of Isaacs had not switched to his party, but was upbeat about the Coalition’s victory in the national poll. “It is good to note people seeing Labor accountable for the situation in this country,” Mr Spencer said. “There would have been high levels of debt for future generations to contend with if Labor had remained in government”. The Australian Greens, represented by Sandra Miles, came in third in the poll with 7.1 per cent of the vote.

The Palmer United Party’s Avtar Gill performed best among the minor parties, securing 3.1 per cent. Mr Spencer said he appreciated the “outstanding grassroots support” his campaign had received from local Liberal Party supporters and thanked those who voted for him. “I really appreciate the support from across the electorate and thank so many people who helped us before and on polling day,” he said. He refused to confirm whether he would run again as a Liberal Party candidate at the next federal election. “It’s a matter for the party, but I’ll

certainly be staying connected,” he said. Mr Dreyfus declined to give his thoughts on who should lead the Labor Party after departing Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced he would step aside. Former Labor leader Mark Latham said Mr Dreyfus would be an excellent choice since he was not involved in bitter internal party in-fighting between former prime minister Julia Gillard and Kevin Rudd supporters. “I’m flattered that people would mention me, but – as I’ve always maintained – I save any leadership discussions for the party room,” Mr Dreyfus said.

Sadness as Aspendale seal pup succumbs A SEAL pup that came ashore at Aspendale beach near Ozone Ave last week has sadly died. The little visitor from the sea attracted much public and media attention on Tuesday and Wednesday last week, with camera crews attending the beach to film the fur seal for television news bulletins. Kingston mayor Ron Brownlees also turned up to perform for the news crews, helping council workers move temporary barriers erected to protect the seal when the creature decided to venture further along the beach. Unfortunately the feel-good story did not last long and Melbourne Zoo staff were called in to rescue the young pup after it began behaving unusually two days after coming ashore. Zoos Victoria issued a statement on Thursday 5 September that advised: “The yearling pup was brought into

Melbourne Zoo at around 1pm today and received a preliminary vet health check at 2:30pm. The seal passed away suddenly before vets could complete the health check.” The seal was believed to be a yearling pup that was being weaned from its mother. Its fatal beach excursion was possibly its first independent foray. Melbourne Zoo’s vet performed a post mortem examination to determine the cause of death. Preliminary checks revealed that there was a significant problem with the seal’s lungs. A blood test also revealed the seal was anaemic and had a low white cell count. Anyone finding a stranded or distressed seal should keep their distance from the animal and contact the Department of Environment and Primary Industries on 136 186. Neil Walker

The perfect shoe for your special day

KINGSTON council is inviting public comment on its proposed new indigenous affairs policy, which includes a recommendation that the Aboriginal flag be flown at the council’s Cheltenham and Mentone offices, as well as at Kingston Arts Centre and Attenborough Park. The draft policy, to replace the city’s 2008 Indigenous Policy, provides a more comprehensive approach to Aboriginal affairs and aims to further strengthen the community’s understanding of indigenous issues and promote cultural connection, Kingston mayor Ron Brownlees said. Cr Brownlees said there was strong community interest in Aboriginal culture, with council receiving inquiries from schools, clubs and other local groups keen to become involved with cultural activities. The draft policy proposes the development and delivery of “flexible and responsive programs which meet the needs of the community and celebrate cultural diversity”, as well as the promotion of “greater awareness and understanding within council of Aboriginal people, heritage, cultural beliefs and customs through cultural heritage training” and improving access to council programs and services by the Aboriginal community. Feedback from the public consultation will be incorporated into the final policy to be considered by council. Comment can be made at the Have Your Say page at kingston.vic.gov.au until Friday 6 October.

Arty youth courted A YOUTH position has become available on Kingston’s Arts and Cultural Advisory Committee, which provides strategic advice to Kingston Council. The position is open to people aged 18-30 who are “passionate about the arts” and want to help the community. While ACAC is not responsible for the operational delivery of arts and cultural services, its members, who are local arts industry experts, play an important role as an independent voice for art and cultural issues. Responsibilities and duties extend to assessing Kingston’s annual arts grants program as well as its Lens Mist Photographic Exhibition and Award and Maker’s Market. Members also facilitate some of xouncil’s arts and cultural activities and events including the Schmooze series of arts forums. Nominations must close 5.30pm on Monday 23 September. For more information, call Suzanne Snooks on 9581 4692 or email suzanne.snooks@ kingston.vic.gov.au.

By Neil Walker MARK Dreyfus survived a nationwide swing against the Australian Labor Party to retain the seat of Isaacs for a third term in last Saturday’s federal election. There was a 6.3 per cent swing against Mr Dreyfus, reducing his winning margin from 10.4 per cent at the 2007 election to 4.1 per cent this time around. Mr Dreyfus secured 54.2 per cent of the vote after preferences. Liberal Party rival Garry Spencer secured 45.9 per cent. The ALP suffered an average loss of support of 7.5 per cent across Victoria. Mr Dreyfus has been federal Attorney-General since February this year but will now lose this portfolio as he becomes an opposition MP. He told The News he was honoured to be re-elected so that he could continue representing the Isaacs electorate, despite being disappointed with the national result for Labor. He thanked the “hundreds of volunteers” who helped his campaign team. Mr Dreyfus said the Labor Government had left Australia’s economy in good shape. “Regrettably, the sound policies we had in place were overshadowed for a long time by leadership speculation so it was very difficult for us to get our message out,” Mr Dreyfus said. He said he would push to ensure Tony Abbott and the incoming Coalition government did not wind back important policy reforms of the previous government, including the Na-

Drinkers blight Harvest Festival

Words to the wise: Mentone Library president Tony Brooker and author Shirley Randles in literary surroundings. Picture: Gary Sissons

Word is subscription library’s a winner THE ever increasing popularity of the annual Melbourne Writers Festival held in late August shows passion for the written word remains as high as ever, even in the modern digital age. Mentone Public Subscription Library celebrates literature all year round. The small but vibrant subscription library, staffed by volunteers, has been lending books to the Mentone community since its establishment in 1925 and is the oldest surviving library in the area. The library moved to its current location, tucked away behind the main Mentone Community Assistance and Information Bureau at Florence St, eight years ago and has recently begun

hosting a number of literary programs to showcase the work of Kingston’s authors, playwrights and poets. Library president Tony Brooker said the library was sustained by a core membership who paid a membership fee to borrow books, but the literary programs were widening its reach. Bentleigh writer Shirley Randles, who launched her latest book A Recipe For A Poem, a joint collaboration with illustrator Lois Jessop, at the library last Saturday, praised the volunteers’ commitment to supporting local writing talent. “People read many books by international authors, but often don’t seem to appreciate we have so much great

talent locally,” Ms Randles said. Budding and established storytellers are able to attend a monthly ‘Write Away with Beth Cregan’ writing workshop to share storytelling tips are find inspiration from fellow writers. Entry to all literary programs are by gold coin donation. An annual library membership is $10. Half-year memberships for $5 are also available. The library is open Mondays, Wednesdays 1-4pm and Fridays, Saturdays 10am-12pm. Call Sue on 9583 5648 or email mentonepubliclibrary@ gmail.com for enquiries and bookings. Visit www.mentonepubliclibrary. blogspot.com.au for further information.

By Neil Walker ALCOHOL service rules could be changed at next year’s Kingston Harvest Festival amid complaints about excessive drinking at the popular annual event. Residents group The Patterson Lakes-Carrum Village Committee was so concerned about heavy drinking at this year’s festival at Carrum in May it formally asked organiser Kingston Council to investigate better ways to manage the selling and consumption of alcohol at future events. Committee chairman Glen Baker said he had noticed “a lot of drunks around children” at this year’s Harvest Festival. “A few people are getting a bit too tipsy at what is supposed to be a family friendly day,” Mr Baker said. Kingston Council advised alcohol sales and consumption at the festival was confined to one specific zone within the big-top marquee. The zone is sectioned off from the

rest of the festival site and the vendor abides by responsible service of alcohol regulations. Security contractors are positioned at the marquee entrance to ensure alcohol remains within the licenced zone. Council acting CEO Paul Franklin said two people were arrested at an unrelated function near the festival site at Roy Dore Reserve, but there were no arrests or alcohol-related incidents at the Harvest Festival. “The Harvest Festival attracted a record crowd and we received excellent feedback from police and festival-goers about the organisation of our festival,” Mr Franklin said. “Responsible service of alcohol is always a major consideration for council in festival preparation, as is providing a vibrant, safe family friendly festival”. Council confirmed an assessment of how alcohol will be served in the marquee at next year’s Harvest Festival will be conducted, as part of the routine post-event review.

Coalition probes mental health services THE effectiveness of mental health programs across Kingston will be reassessed to ensure services are properly targeted towards the needs of patients, under the new Coalition government. The Coalition government is also set to establish an $18 million National Centre for Excellence in Youth Men-

tal Health and support for the expansion of youth mental health foundation Headspace to more than 100 centres nation-wide. The National Centre for Excellence in Youth Mental Health will undertake “cutting edge clinical trials” to find new treatments for mental illness in young people.

Commuter hell as derailed train shuts Frankston line

Grinding halt: A freight train carriage came off the track at the northern end of Mordialloc station shortly after midday on Monday, forcing Metro to shut the line and replace trains with buses between Mordialloc and Cheltenham for the rest of the afternoon and evening, causing long delays for Frankston line commuters. Pictures: Gary Sissons

By Chris Brennan TRAIN services on the Frankston line were thrown into chaos on Monday after a freight train derailed at Mordialloc shorty after midday forcing Metro to close the line in both directions for more than 12 hours. Buses replaced trains between Mordialloc and Cheltenham throughout the afternoon and evening peak, with services not returning to normal until early Tuesday morning. No one was injured in the incident, however commuters faced delays of up

to an hour after being forced to transfer to buses to connect with trains terminating at Mordialloc for services to and from Frankston and at Cheltenham for services to and from the city. The derailment occurred when a carriage of an outbound Pacific National freight train on its way to BlueScope Steel near Hastings came off the track just before the McDonald St level crossing at the northern end of platform 2 at Mordialloc station. The leading axle on the trailing bogie of the wagon immediately behind

the locomotives came off the track as it passed over points where the rail divides into two, gouging into the bitumen of the road crossing. The diesel-powered train was transporting large coils of steel however the derailed carriage was empty at the time of incident. Maintenance crews used wooden sleepers to shift the stricken carriage back onto the centre rail line. The line was reopened around 2.30am and services returned to normal by the time the first trains of the day were due on Tuesday.

NEWS DESK

Kelly crew muscles in BRAESIDE-based Nissan Motorsport is thriving in the competitive world of the V8 Supercars Championship. After serving a successful driving apprenticeship with champion team Walkinshaw Racing in the 2000s, brothers Todd and Rick Kelly set up their own V8 race team in 2009. The Kelly boys, who together have three Bathurst 1000 wins to their names, built their state-of-the-art Braeside facility with no expense spared, all aimed at becoming the biggest and best V8 Supercars team in the country. Originally a Holden squad known as Kelly Racing, the team captured the attention of the Nissan Motor Company which lured them back into top-level touring car racing, becoming the manufacturer to end the Ford and Holden duopoly that has dominated V8 Supercars racing for 20 years. And just eight months into Nissan’s return, they are now race winners. At the recent Winton Raceway near Benalla last month, young gun James Moffat took Nissan’s first win in Australian Touring Car racing in 21 years, leading home Nissan team-mate Michael Caruso for a historic 1-2 finish. The Winton result was a culmination of 18 months hard work and dedication – from winning the support of Nissan, to now having some trophies in their cabinet to justify the blood, sweat and tears from drivers and race crews. “It’s a little bit of a dream come true,” Rick Kelly said. “For James and Michael to achieve that when we still in a huge development phase with our Nissan Altima V8 Supercars is absolutely incredible.

Next stop Sandown: V8s driver Rick Kelly at Nissan’s new workshop at Braeside. Picture: Gary Sissons

“The last 18 months for us have been extremely tough. Our guys, especially those with families, have had to sacrifice everything with the workload. All of their effort paid off.” The factory Nissan team has over 60 employees and is one of just two V8 Supercars teams with infrastructure to be mechanically self-sufficient. The multi-million dollar facility features three separate buildings house its race shop area, engine shop, machine shop and composites department, as well as its own sticker shop and merchandise. “We set this facility up to be something that we could grow in to, and I

think that has been justified by Nissan’s commitment to our vision,” Mr Kelly said. “I’m very proud of the race team we have created. We picked a great location, close to everything that we need and we’ve recruited some of the best engineers and staff on offer. “I feel we have the makings of a race team that can be a chance to win every time we roll the cars out.” Nissan Motorsport returns to the track for the Sandown 500 (September 13-15) ahead of the category’s most famous race, the Bathurst 1000 on October 10-13.

Fisherman stung in Mordi snapper sting AN elderly fisherman faces 12 months in prison or and fines of more than $20,000 after being caught with 41 mostly undersized snapper at Mordialloc. The 62-year-old Clayton man will be charged on summons after undercover Fisheries Victoria officers intercepted his boat as it returned to the Mordialloc boat ramp in the evening late last month carrying more than four-times the legal bag limit of snapper. When approached while still in his boat by the plain-clothed officers, the man allegedly dropped a blue mesh bag into Mordialloc Creek, which was later retrieved and allegedly found to contain 31 snapper, 23 of which were undersized. A further 10 snapper – the legal bag limit – were openly on display in the boat. The smallest of the undersized snapper measured 24.3 centimetres while the legal catch size is 28 centimetres. Recreational fishermen are permitted to bag no more than ten snapper in any one day, of which no more than

three can be more than 40 centimtres in length. The Fisheries officers seized the man’s entire catch and fishing rods. If convicted he faces fines of up to $5,760. In addition, the man may be charged with the more serious offence of hindering fisheries officers in the execution of their duties, by preventing them from inspecting fish catches, prosecution for which carries a fine of up to $17,323 or 12 months imprisonment. Fisheries Victoria director of education and enforcement Ian Parks said recreational fishermen flouting size and bag limits were jeopardising the sustainability of Port Phillip Bay's valuable snapper population and could expect severe penalties. “Anglers taking undersize snapper, or too many snapper, should be aware Fisheries Officers regularly patrol boat ramps and piers in plain clothes during the day and night,” Mr Parks said. Anyone who sees or suspects illegal fishing activity is urged to contact the 24-hour fisheries offences reporting line on 13FISH (133 474).

Snap happy: Fisheries Victoria officers siezed 41 mostly undersized snapper in a raid at Mordialloc late last month. The legal daily bag limit is just 10.

AROUND THE REGION

New hands making ‘world’s best’ fish and chips SEAFORD’S famous fish and chip shop has changed hands for the first time in 46 years. The internet was unknown when Greek immigrants Tom Podaridis and Bill Petinarias started the business in 1968, but news of their decision to sell the shop sparked a collective social memory on Facebook. It seems the food and the men who made it were part of Seaford. A strong work ethic and dedication to producing consistently good meals saw the shop acclaimed as the “best fish and chip shop in the world”. Mr Podaridis and his brother-inlaw Bill Petinarias came from the same village on the Greek island of Lemnos. On arriving in Australia they quickly found work. Mr Podaridis worked in fruit shops, fish and chip shops and a factory, all the time saving to buy his own business. Eventually there was enough money to buy a fish and chip shop in Nepean Highway, Seaford. His wife Dora was pregnant with their second child so, in May 1968, he suggested his brotherin-law Bill leave his job at the RACV Members Club in Melbourne to join the new venture. They admit that nothing much changed over the years; they worked hard and the quality of what they offered was never compromised. They made everything fresh, every day, rejecting the easy “frozen chip” way out. Potatoes were peeled, fish filleted and cooking oils changed. Their recipe has not changed.

“It’s simple: buy the best quality you can get and sell it fresh. Keep your oils fresh and your batter cold – simple,” Mr Podaridis said. However, success meant sacrifices. “There was a cost,” Mr Podaridis’s son Chris says. “I look back to the spare chair at my birthday parties realising that Dad missed milestones, our birthdays, sports days and a family holiday was what other people had. “Many a summer holiday was spent at the shop with a brief trip to the beach across the road. “They were simple times, but we managed to make our own fun building forts from the hessian potato bags and wild, young imagination. These summer visits became ‘put on a apron and give us a hand’ visits as we got older.” The fish and chip men say they have catered for births, deaths, marriages and, in recent years, divorce parties. They have cooked for footy club events, celebrities and politicians and the summer “swarms”. Over the course of more than four decades they have seen babies grow into parents who are now bringing in babies of their own. They recall former Seaford residents returning 20 years later with a surprised look on their faces saying “You still here”. During the footy season, flake became the currency for bets with customers. Mr Petinarias always backed Fitzroy while Mrs Podaridis (Dora) often bet potato cakes on Collingwood. Mr Podaridis showed no interest

It’s a wrap: Bill Petinarias, left, and Tom Podaridis have left their Seaford fish and chip shop after 46 years in the careful hands of Kim Chaya, rear. Picture: Gary Sissons

in betting; he would just stand at the “battering station” and ensure the next piece of flake was laid just as carefully and perfectly into the oil as the last piece, ensuring that the batter was perfect. Chris Podaridis, an accountant, says it was a difficult decision to sell, with both families intent on making

sure the business would “go to a good home”. About a year ago, a well-dressed man asked if the business was for sale. “I felt by the conversations over the coming weeks that both Bill and Tom liked this guy and were comfortable about handing over the torch to him. “I remember my father saying that

‘if a man takes pride in the way he looks, he will take pride in the way he cooks’.” Kim Chaya has taken over the shop and is determined to carry on the traditions of “the best fish and chip shop in the world”. Keith Platt

Peninsula Link cameras set to roll PENINSULA Link freeway speed cameras will start operating on Monday 16 September. Six camera sites have been installed, with two point-topoint cameras and three instantaneous detection cameras in each direction. Police say a 14-day test of the cameras “caught” more than 7500 speeding motorists. More than 500 motorists were exceeding the speed limit by 15km/h or more and 66 of those drivers would have lost their licences. Six people driving at 45km/h over the limit would have had their vehicles impounded under anti-hoon laws.

Signs have been placed on Peninsula Link warning motorists that the speed cameras are about to be activated. Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill said it was disappointing that people were still not getting the message about the dangers of speeding. “We know that speed is a major factor in about one-third of fatal collisions each year, yet some motorists continue to drive at dangerous speeds, putting the lives of all road users at risk. Low-level speeding can be just as dangerous as high-level speeding, so it is concerning to see about 5000 motorists exceeding the speed limit by less

than 10 kilometres an hour,” he said. “Speeding drivers increase the risk to all road users with the potential for devastating consequences. “Cameras help to reduce death and road trauma on our roads and are an important part of our overall enforcement approach “This is a reminder to motorists to slow down, pay attention and make sure you are driving within the signed speed limit at all times.” Ready for action: Cameras in place on Peninsula Link freeway.

WHAT’S NEW

Fine dining at your doorstep... Celebrate with us - Book a table & enjoy a glass of Prosecco on arrival for the month of September

new sophisticated modern Italian dining experience

Fine dining at your doorstep RESTAURANT owners Mario Tavian and Stephanie Condello are set to revolutionise fine dining in the Frankston area. The pair have owned Caesars Bar Restaurant Cafe for six years. Their efforts to serve authentic Italian cuisine to customers were officially recognised by Italy’s government in 2012 when they received the “Ospitalita Italiana” quality approval seal recognising outstanding Italian achievements in food, wine, service and culture. Now the award-winning duo is aiming to raise the standards at their restaurant even higher with a new name – Bel Sorriso. “Bel sorriso” is Italian for “beautiful smile” and the Tavians will ensure the whole dining experience – including the food and top-quality service – means exactly that for satisfied diners. Mr Tavian has put together an innovative menu for Bel Sorriso with fresh produce and traditional cookery techniques to the fore. The wine list will focus on regional Italian

wines, including Denominazione di Origine Controllata (DOC) and Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) wines, which have guaranteed quality and authenticity. Australian wines will also be available. An exclusive upstairs private dining experience, Stefania’s at Bel Sorriso will offer a fivecourse degustation menu with matching wines, among other menu options. Stefania’s will accomodate up to 25 people. Pre- and post-dinner drinks can be enjoyed in the downstairs lounge, or on the upstairs terrace for Stefania’s diners. Bel Sorriso opens on Saturday 14 September. Book a table until Monday 30 September and receive a complimentary glass of prosecco sparkling wine on arrival. Bel Sorriso, 343 Nepean Hwy, Frankston, phone 9770 0111, email: dining@belsorriso.com. au or stefanias@belsorriso.com.au for private dining enquiries. www.belsorriso.com.au

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Tennis comes to Tyabb, peninsula loses two well-respected residents Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 13 September 1913. IT has been decided to again restore the game of tennis here, and at a meeting held in the hall for that purpose last Monday evening, a tennis club was formed and a committee appointed to carry out the necessary preliminary arrangements. Mr A. Lester was elected chairman and Mr L. Cole secretary and treasurer. Another meeting will be held on Monday evening, and all those who are interested are cordially invited to attend. Cricket is also in the wind. The annual meeting of the Tyabb cricket club will be called very shortly, and all members and others interested please watch the advertising columns of this paper next Saturday. *** GENERAL sympathy was expressed throughout the Mornington district when it became known that Mrs Flood, relict of the late Mr James Flood, formerly of Oatlands,” Moorooduc, had passed away at her residence in Melbourne on Saturday week last, after a short illness at the advanced age of 92 years. The deceased lady was born in London, England, and came to Victoria about 69 years ago. She was of an amiable and cheerful disposition and a great favourite with all with whom she came in contact. Mr James Flood, who predeceased his wife about 18 years, was a native of London and close on 50 years ago he purchased “Oatlands” at Moorooduc, where he and his family resided after he had resigned from the Government printing office; where he had been employed

PAGE 18

for a great number of years. The family to whom we convey our deepest sympathy consists of two daughters and four sons:- Mrs Arnold, Miss Emily Flood (with whom deceased lived), Cr George Flood, Mornington, and James, John and William. The remains were interred in the Melbourne cemetery on Monday, 1st inst. *** ANOTHER old and respected resident, in the person of Mr T. Young, passed away on Tuesday evening. He leaves widow, for whom much sympathy is expressed in her bereavement. *** THE Frankston junior footballers journeyed to Carrum on Saturday, when they met and defeated the locals rather easily. *** THE many friends of Miss Crosbie, daughter of Mr J. Crosbie, shire secretary of Mornington, will be pleased to hear that she is now convalescent after her severe illness. *** A LACROSE match, between teams picked from the Malvern Club, was played in the Frankston Park on Saturday. There were not many spectators, but those who were present followed the game with great interest. *** MEMBERS of the Mornington Racing Club are reminded that the annual meeting takes place tonight (Saturday) in the Mechanics’ Institute. A full attendance of members is requested as very important business will be transacted. *** LANGWARRIN will be en fete on Wednesday, when a sports meeting in

Chelsea – Mordialloc News 11 September 2013

the afternoon and bioscope entertainment at night will be held. The object of the sports club is a worthy one, and given fine weather, their meeting should be a great success. *** A KITCHEN tea and basket social, in aid of the Somerville Fruitgrowers’ Ladies’ Guild, will be held in the Somerville Mechanics’ Hall on Friday evening, September 19. The price of admission is 1s 6d, and an enjoyable time is assured. *** ABOUT twenty young ladies and gentlemen responded to the kind invitation of the Misses Bieri to an evening at “Parkside,” Mornington, on Tuesday last. The guests highly appreciated the attention bestowed on them by their genial hostesses, and a most enjoyable time was spent. *** A HUNDRED thousand pairs of boots are to be worn out in the cause of Temperance in Chicago this Winter, as many Temperance workers have each promised to dedicate a pair of new shoes to the cause, and to wear them out in distributing Temperance pamphlets. *** AT the last meeting of the Frankston and Hastings Shire Council the engineer, in reply to Cr Ritchie, said he thought it would be a good idea if the Council were to write to the Main Roads Board, and point out the urgency of work required on the Main Melbourne road. Cr Griffith moved that the Council write to the Main Roads Board, pointing out the urgency of the work, and ask them when they intend doing it, and what other roads they are likely to take

over. Cr Ritchie seconded, and the motion was carried. *** A PLEASANT evening was spent by members of the Frankston Choral Society and friends in the Mechanics’ Hall on the 1st inst., the occasion being a social evening given by the members of the society. The first part of the evening’s entertainment consisted a of a musical guessing competition, 2 which was won by Miss Rogers, with Miss O’Grady and Miss D Gregory a tie for second. After several musical items had been rendered by members. supper was handed round; and a short dance, to music supplied by Miss O’Grady and Messrs Hanton and Ellis, was subsequently held. *** THESE are days of conferences and conventions of varied descriptions, dealing with almost all sorts of questions. There is now a good deal of stir among the Christian Endeavourers of Australia, of whom there are 80,000 in the Commonwealth, at the prospect of having the Worlds C.E. Convention in their own land in March 1914. In Sydney, where the Convention is to be held, great preparations are in progress. Prominent preachers and speakers from England and America as well as visitors from almost all parts of the world are expected. Christian Endeavourers and friends all over Australasia are making arrangements to attend these gatherings in Sydney. The Victorian C.E. Union is busy making arrangements for the State Convention which is to be held in Melbourne from October 8th to 13th inclusive. The programme, which promises to be some of the best

of its kind, has been adopted. Subjects of vital interest to the C.E. movement are to be considered. It is anticipated that a large number of delegates from all parts of the State will attend. *** A MEETING of the Beachdale Progress Association was held at Mrs Latimer’s store on the 6th inst, when there was a large attendance of members, and the following business was transacted:Mr Martin moved that the secretary (Mr Wilson) interview Cr Ritchie, and point out that the Government reserve between the railway line and Kananook Creek may be suitable for an approach to the new railway station, from Martines road, instead of a road to the east of the line; also to urge the opening up at once of the entrance to the station from Broughton’s road. Mr McInnis seconded the motion, which was carried. Mr Hall moved that the Hon. A. Downward, M.L.A., be asked to assist in securing a school for the district. Mr McInnis seconded the motion, which was carried. Mr Klauer moved, and Mr Martin seconded, that the secretary write to the secretary of the Carrum Downs Progress Association, requesting a delegate to attend next meeting, to confer to Abbot’s road, which is a new outlet to the new station. *** CR Campbell, pursuant to notice, moved at the last meeting of the Mornington Council, that anyone wearing unprotected hat pins in Mornington will be liable to a penalty not exceeding £5. Cr Flood seconded the motion which was carried unanimously.


FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

The meaning of existence (and other short stories)

By Stuart McCullough

Idle thoughts on democracy By Stuart McCullough DEMOCRACY is the worst form of government, except for all the others. Or so claimed Winston Churchill. Old ‘Chuggalugs’ Churchill might have thought he was qualified to speak from experience but I’ll politely disagree. I love the way that we, as a nation, go about the whole business, from the sausage sizzle right down to the “people’s forums” in which impartial and undecided voters are shoved into a room to ask thoughtful, insightful questions while a twitter feed from blatantly partisan observers with tag names such as Gransterman, The Nooger Man and the terrifyingly named Thundernuts, are broadcast below. Democracy throws in to sharp focus the best and worst of all we have to offer. When else are we going to hear about the “suppository of human knowledge” or learn that not everyone likes getting their make-up done? So to all the candidates who summoned the courage to throw their hat – whether bowler, hard or one of those with a cup holder, straw and the words ‘foam dome’ scrawled across the front – into the ring, I salute you. For I know all too well how it feels to lay yourself bare under the democratic spotlight. Tyabb Primary School decided to introduce a ‘house system’. Despite what the name suggests, it did not mean we were suddenly allowed to study indoors. Rather, that students

would be broken up pretty much randomly into four groups. Sadly, the four houses were named after colours: blue, gold and two others I can’t presently remember but, for the sake of convenience, I’ll refer to as magenta and antique white. I’d though it ridiculous, suggesting instead that the houses be named after either the four horsemen of the Apocalypse or members of the Beatles. We went to church every Sunday and, even at a young age, I took the four horsemen extremely seriously. I would sit in the pew in terrified awe as the minister gave a sermon on the book of Revelations and how the

horsemen – Pestilence, War, Famine and Trevor – would one day sweep down on an unsuspecting earth. Such was my devotion that I even had a number of their albums. To this day, I’ll occasionally slip a copy of Frankie Valli and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse onto the hi-fi as I do the housework. My other great passion was the Beatles. Sure, they’d broken up years earlier, but I’d become obsessed with a cassette entitled The Beatles Ballads which my father got free with a TimeLife magazine subscription. When my family got sick of the Apocalypse, we listened to the Bea-

WINDOW TINTING

tles. You can’t tell me that being a member of either Pestilence or Ringo House wouldn’t have been wonderful, but the idea was rejected at a hastily convened staffroom meeting. To avoid conflict, family members were lumped together, so all five members of the McCullough family were assigned to Gold house. This, presumably, was based on the principle that “a house divided cannot stand”. But being in a house was not enough – the school demanded that there be house captains. We’d never had house captains before and I had no idea what powers ‘house captains’ might wield. Would they be able to marry people at sea? Or, if not, at least be entitled to wear a blue blazer, white cap and stare off into the distance? Whether wearing a hat can fairly be described as “the trappings of power” is a matter for debate, but I was enthralled. However, being somewhat shy, I never for a moment dreamed that I could aspire to the exalted rank of house captain. The odds of winning a popular vote were stacked against me. For starters, at that time I had Ringo Starr’s haircut circa June 1964, only blonde. I wasn’t especially popular with other kids either, with my dominance of spelling bees serving only to alienate me from my peers. However, Tyabb Primary School was pretty small then and once the pupils were divided into four houses,

HOMES

the groups only had about thirty or so kids in each of them. When a call for volunteers failed, the bony finger of both fate and Ms Hocking was aimed squarely in my direction. Caught off guard, I instantly assembled my pitch for election. I would, obviously, change our name to Pestilence House. And I’d make sure that kids everywhere had the right to demand a Beatle-bowlcut. Although these were obviously wonderful policies, there was another factor at play – nepotism. In a group of thirty, I had two brothers and two sisters. Surely, this would be enough to swing the vote squarely in my direction? Or it would be, if I could count on their votes being cast in my favour. Looking around the room, I couldn’t help but notice that my siblings were studiously avoiding eye contact. I had no idea what was going on. If only the thoughts of ‘Gransterman’ and ‘Thundernuts’ had crawled in front of me. In those days, we didn’t go in for secret ballots; a simple show of hands was enough. As palms reached skywards at the sound of my name, my brothers and sisters remained unmoved. I won, but my term in office was riddled with controversy after I attempted to abolish lunch orders. I may have won the election, but I lost the war. My siblings, I suspect, knew better than I did. They at least, if not the people, had spoken. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Ecstasy as Dromana wins first flag in 42 years NEPEAN LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly DROMANA won its first senior premiership since 1971 on Saturday when it led all afternoon to smash arch-rival Sorrento by a massive 13 goals. It was a sensational day for Dromana Football Club, which also won the reserves premiership, beating Sorrento by 54 points. While it was a tremendous day for Dromana, it was a sorry one for Sorrento. The Sharks did well to get all three teams into the grand final, but lost all three games when Somerville started grand final day with a massive 65-point win in the under-18s. Dromana was primed to win the Nepean League grand final after the heartbreaking, two-point loss to Sorrento last year. The Tigers knew where they needed to improve, were aware of the personnel they needed to achieve the improvement and dedicated themselves for a whole year. Dromana Football Club made decisions and sacrifices to achieve success. When you come up against powerhouse Sorrento Football Club, you have to tick every box to be competitive. Dromana did this all season and while it lost the opening game of the year, from that point on it was the best side in the competition. People scoffed at Devon Meadows coach Brent Clinnick earlier in the season when he said Dromana was the best country football side he had ever seen. After the final siren at Frankston’s Kars St Oval on Saturday, a deadpan Gavin Artico told The News “we have all just witnessed the best side in the

history of Nepean this afternoon”. It was hard to argue with the now two-time premiership coach. His charges had just spent the previous two hours dismantling a team that hadn’t lost a game all season and was looking for four premierships in a row. Sorrento players came into the game sore after a tough loss to Dromana in the second semi-final and a bruising encounter against Rosebud in the preliminary final last weekend. Let’s be honest, the Sharks were there to be beaten. Dromana certainly did that – from the first bounce of the afternoon to the 31-minute mark of the last quarter when the siren sounded. As is the case with all grand finals, there was an interesting side story to come out of the week. Matt Neratzoglou, who played 14 games this season, was dropped from the team on Wednesday night and Beau McMurray brought in. Dromana needed an advantage over Sorrento and it was going to be provided by more run and pace as well as the ability to trap the ball in their forward half. McMurray provided this after two best-on-ground displays in his previous two matches. Neratzoglou provided another tall forward option, but had only managed 23 goals in 15 games in a side that boasted a winning margin of 92 points in 2013. It was a tough decision to make. Bringing in McMurray was the right thing to do for the team and club to win a premiership. His selection was vindicated in the opening quarter when he dominated and kicked a goal, one of two for the afternoon. There was another twist in the opening quarter when Dromana ruckman

Chelsea – Mordialloc News 11 September 2013

Luke O’Neil was felled off the ball. He was knocked out, carried off on a stretcher and failed to return, even after the final siren. Dromana is sure to provide videotape to the league. The incident left the Tigers with three on the bench. While you don’t want to lose players in a grand final, it almost worked in favour of the Tigers. Number one ruckman Michael Falconer played his best game of the season, needing to shoulder the ruck load predominantly on his own. Falconer was aggressive, imposing and dominant. It also meant Stuart Cleeve needed to step up, a responsibility he accepted with relish. He threw himself into the contest and booted an important goal. The Dromana back six has been superb all season and the same occurred on Saturday. Dromana’s Jay Neratzoglou dominated Sorrento’s Ben Schwarze and Michael Hunter beat Leigh Poholke. These were two key match-ups and Dromana came out on top, comfortably. The other four defenders in Christian Ongarello, skipper Rikki Johnston, Shaun Clarke and Adam Hunter were also superb all afternoon. Dromana has a wealth of talent in the midfield including Adam Hunter as well as Sam and Daniel Guerts, Paul Minchington, Liam Hogan, Ryan Slocombe, Toby Banks and Braeden Dennis. Hogan and Slocombe are underestimated in their roles. They work tirelessly in and under, do a lot of the hard stuff and get the ball out to the runners. Paul Minchington is a little magician and his attack on the footy can never be questioned.

Jarred Wood also uses his strong body to perfection and ensured every hit was a big one. Dromana’s only weakness in the second semi-final was its forward line and its inability to hold the ball inside its 50-metre arc. There was no such problem on Saturday. Anthony Bruhn was at his Team of the Year best with five goals, Toby Banks finished with three goals after a great tussle with Sorrento skipper Benny McCormack, Daniel Waddell had a slow start but stormed home with three majors through pure hard work, and Dan Gormley provided electricity and unpredictability that we come to expect from him. All Dromana players performed well but best of them was Terry Wheeler. He dominated on the wing, had 30 possessions and finished with two goals. It was Dromana’s run and carry that won the game. Sorrento was shocked early when Leigh Treeby injured his thigh. He was ineffectual after quarter time. Troy Schwarze stepped up in Treeby’s absence before he too was injured. It was a case of managing the best they could for Sorrento after halftime. The Tigers sensed a kill in the third quarter and responded with a 7.1 to 0.1 quarter. That was the game right there. It hasn’t been Dromana’s way this season to take the foot off the pedal. The Tigers booted another 6.2 to 2.1 in the final 31 minutes to really make a statement. A Dromana premiership was a fitting result for the best team in the competition this season. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Eagles fly from spooners to grand finalists PENINSULA LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly A MATTHEW Kremmer inspired Edithvale-Aspendale has come from behind to advance to the Peninsula League Grand Final next Sunday. Edithvale booted five goals to two in a frantic last quarter against Frankston YCW to win 11.17–83 to 11.12–78. The Eagles dominated general play in the final term, however, almost kicked themselves out of it with 10 behinds in the final 30 minutes. Frankston YCW was looking for its fourth premiership in as many seasons in 2013 and looked to be in the box seat at three quarter time on Sunday at Frankston Park when it led by 14 points. However, Edithvale full forward Matthew Kremmer booted four goals in the last quarter to help get his side over the line. Kremmer finished the afternoon with a game-high seven goals. The Eagles will be attempting to be the first side to go from a wooden spoon one season, to the premiership the next when it faces Bonbeach in the big dance this Sunday. Bonbeach will be looking for its first premiership since 1984. It was a see-sawing battle all afternoon between the Eagles and the Stonecats. The teams had met twice through the season, the Eagles smashing the Stonecats by 50 points on the Queen’s Birthday weekend. They met again in round 18, where YCW came from seven goals down in the second quarter to

record an 18-point win. This game was always going to be a classic, despite the fact that the Eagles had to come from an Elimination Final. Edithvale kicked the first two goals of the match through Jeremy Heys and Brad Tagg, before the Stonecats

second quarter before Kremmer broke the drought at the 10-minute mark and snagged his first for the day. Adam Budge booted a goal at the 18-minute mark and Kremmer kicked his second in time-on to give the Eagles the lead at the major break. As expected, Frankston YCW came out charging in the third quarter through their skipper Anthony Barry, Craig Nankervis and Byron Barry and dominated the quarter, booting six goals to one. The Stonecats were running on top of the ground and looked to be the winners at three quarter time. However, Timmy and Stevey Mannix, along with Tagg and teenage sensation Bailey Dale, refused to throw in the towel. As we have seen on many ocassions this season in Peninsula League, if you can hang in a game long enough, you are every chance of winning. The Eagles kicked the first of their five last quarter goals at the eight minute of the last quarter and then booted the next two to make it a real ball game. The Stonecats responded with one, before the Eagles kicked two of the last three to get over the line in an absolute thriller. The final Kremmer goal came well into time-on. In the Reserves, Seaford got the job done against Mt Eliza to advance to the grand final against Langwarrin this Sunday. In the Under 18s, Frankston YCW earned another shot at Mt Eliza after beating Seaford by 16 points.

responded with three of their own in six minutes. David Bodley booted two first quarter goals and finished the afternoon with four and Ricky Morris added one to give the Stonecats a 10-point break at the first change. Both teams went toe to toe in the

Teams of year ‘clear cut’ PENINSULA League and Nepean League coaches have voted for their teams of the year. The poll was organised by The News’s football writer Andrew “Toe Punt” Kelly. There were 52 players nominated in Peninsula and 56 in Nepean. “Players with the most nominations from coaches were selected. The teams picked themselves,” Toe Punt said. “Unlike previous years, the 22 players selected in each team received the majority of support from coaches. “There wasn’t the situation we’ve had in previous years where there were a lot of players on similar votes and we were forced to make hard decisions. “This year, there was overwhelming support for the 22 selected.”
