Game on for rate battle

By Neil Walker KINGSTON may join a multi-council campaign to lobby the state government to change recently enacted guidelines that prohibit levying higher rates on gaming venues. Councillors Rosemary West and David Eden proposed Kingston council work with other Melbourne councils

to push for the right to impose higher rates on land used for gambling venues. “Gambling causes significant financial and personal burdens for the City of Kingston, particularly for problem gamblers,” Cr West said at the most recent council meeting. “It really is undemocratic that councils can’t impose an extra rate burden

on gambling venues.” Cr West noted rates had been increased for landfill operators to discourage their prevalence in the municipality and said this option should be available to council for gaming venues. Cr Eden told the meeting it was unfortunate that the state government haddecided to restrict councils’ ability to levy

a differential rate on gaming venues. “It is a step back in dealing with social issues and it makes it very difficult for councils to try to deal with the negative effects of gaming. There are costs to council services due to problem gambling,” Cr Eden said. The proposal to charge higher rates for gaming venues comes as Kingston

council considers updating its policy aimed at addressing problem gambling and pokies (‘Pokies back in spotlight’, The News, 11/9/13). A recently released report on the social and economic cost of problem gambling found gambling addiction could cost the state of Victoria up to $2.8 billion a year. Continued Page 9

Kids’ Cafe provides food for thought By Neil Walker THE best ideas stand the test of time and that is exactly what has happened at Mentone Park Primary School where parents, grandparents and pupils have been cooking healthy meals in their Kids’ Cafe since its inception in 2003. The community-run canteen sets up shop every Friday during school term, with parents and guardians pitching in to cook up preservative-free, healthy meals. Mentone Park principal Kendra Parker said the Kids’ Cafe fits the school’s philosophy of healthy eating leading to a healthy lifestyle. “Everything is made fresh and it’s a good opportunity for busy families to spend some time together, have some fun and think about healthy food choices,� Ms Parker said. The Kids’ Cafe, co-founded by assistant principal Perry Kick and parent Sue Barron, has won many awards for innovation, including the Victorian School Canteen Association’s Best Primary School Canteen Idea of the Year award in 2005. Kendra Parker addressed the University of Melbourne’s Festival of Ideas earlier this month to explain how the Kids’ Cafe encouraged pupils to think about food sustainability and the importance of growing, harvesting and cooking good food, while also protecting the environment. Fellow speakers included chef and author Stephanie Alexander, who set up the popular kitchen garden program employed by many schools. Where possible, fresh produce is sourced from the school’s veggie garden to supplement the Kids’ Cafe lunches and cooking program.

FIVE Kingston primary schools have signed up to a new road safety program that aims to improve children’s fitness and encourage them to help the environment. Aspendale, Chelsea, Chelsea Heights, Edithvale and St Louis de Montfort’s primary schools will participate in the Safe Routes to School program, which aims to increase walking and cycling to school and thereby reduce traffic congestion and create a safer, greener and more liveable school environment. The VicRoads-funded program will be delivered by through Kingston council, which will work in partnership with the schools, Victoria Police, Department of Education and Early Childhood Development and Bicycle Network Victoria. Consultations and infrastructure audits will help identity each school’s needs and the road safety issues they face. Working groups will then be formed to deliver promotional activities, events and competitions to encourage walking and cycling, such as bike education talks, healthy breakfasts, bike safety checks and participation in Walk to School month during November and Ride2School Day in March. Members of the community wanting more information about Safe Routes to School can contact council on 1300 653 356.

“It makes pupils realise where food actually comes from,� Ms Parker said. Parents and grandparents work in the school’s kitchen from 8am on Fridays to prepare to dish up lunch.

Year 5 and 6 pupils learn how to make a three-course meal of entree, main meal and dessert and host their own version of TV show My Kitchen Rules by serving the food up to their

families at the school. The Kids Cafe remains open each Friday until 4pm and pupils’ families are welcome to stay after school pick-up and have a healthy school-made meal.

Frankston line back in loop By Chris Brennan LATEST performance figures for train services on the Frankston line confirm a “dramatic improvement� since the change of state government in 2010, according state liberal MPs Lorraine Wreford and Donna Bauer. Ms Wreford, the member for Mordialloc, said August performance figures for the line revealed 93.6 per cent of trains were now running on time. “That is a 23.9 per cent improvement on the 69.7 per cent Labor achieved at the same time three years ago,� Ms Wreford said. “They let the line decline to a point where the performance was constantly 65.5 per cent to 70 per cent. “We said we’d fix it, and while there

Kingston pupils ready to ride high

is still more to be done, we have consistently had punctuality over 90 per cent since August 2011, and it’s still improving.� Ms Bauer, the member for Carrum, said progress had been made on upgrading infrastructure to reduce faults, and significant funds were in the budget to do more. “We’ve done a lot to fix it up, and there is more to come,� Ms Bauer said. “$100 million has been budgeted to further improve the signalling, wires and rails so the new X’Trapolis trains can use the line. It will also fund improved shelters, signage and other items at the stations.� However new data shows trains on the Frankston line are bypassing the

City Loop on a regular basis, despite being scheduled to stop there. Public Transport Victoria’s latest Track Record report reveals 470 services on the Frankston line were rescheduled to bypass the City Loop over a 12 month period to 30 June. Train provider Metro is permitted to redirect services to Flinders St instead of through the five City Loop stations to make up time and avoid knock-on effects across the network. State Labor MP Jude Perera said a quarterly service report for April to June showed more than 1200 train services across the metropolitan network had bypassed the City and Altona loops – nearly double the previous reporting period. Trains on the Frankston

PENINSULA FIREPLACE CENTRE

line bypassed the City and Altona loops 169 times over the same period, he said. “What Frankston line train users know is that public transport is overcrowded and is failing because Premier Denis Napthine only has one transport focus and that is his dud $8 billion tunnel that makes further public transport investment decades away. “Mr Napthine won’t invest in making public transport a priority in our local area; it is getting worse and it won’t get any better under his government. “Frankston line commuters have a right to be upset at Transport Minister Terry Mulder’s claims in 2011 that he had ‘fixed’ Victoria’s transport system when the reality is it is getting worse.�

Child restraint checks FREE child restraint checks will be conducted this weekend in Chelsea Heights under a Kingston council and RoadSafe South East initiative that aims to reduce the risk of injury to youngsters. The free inspections will be held on this Saturday between 10am and 2pm at Mitre 10 at the corner of Springvale Road and Wells Road. No bookings are necessary. While the inspections are free, parts and accessories are available for purchase on the day. The child restraint fitters are trained and certified by the Australian Child Restraint Resource Initiative and can assist parents on how to correctly use and install child restraints and the legal restraint requirements. Having your child safely belted into a child restraint or booster seat that is suitable for their size and age, and is correctly fitted and adjusted, is crucial for every car journey. Research shows that children wearing adult seat belts are 3.5 times more likely to sustain a significant injury, particularly to the head, than children in child restraints. Details: 1300 653 356.

Con men ready to spring into action POLICE and Consumer Affairs officials have warned homeowners to be on the lookout for travelling con men offering cheap deals for odd jobs. Crime Stoppers Victoria and Consumer Affairs Victoria have warned Kingston residents to be especially wary of “today-only� deals over the busy spring renovation period. Minister for Consumer Affairs Heidi Victoria said cheap, shoddy work on houses could cost much more in the long run. She said travelling con men become more active with the arrival of spring, targeting homeowners as they started to look at ways to repair or upgrade their properties. “They doorknock for work such as painting, roof restoration, driveway work and tree-lopping and put you under pressure to agree to get the work done immediately,� she said “Sometimes they even drive you to bank teller machines to get payment upfront. “If you suspect a travelling con man is knocking, don’t open your door, but if you do speak to them, ask them to leave. If they refuse, they’re breaking the law.� Residents are being asked to record as much information as possible about suspected con men, such as the name they use, physical description and vehicle make and registration details. Crime Stoppers Victoria chief executive Samantha Hunter said homeowners needed to be vigilant to protect themselves and others. “We’re asking you to not only report approaches made to you, but also look out for your relatives and neighbours who may be more susceptible to con men,� Ms Hunter said. In 2012-13, Consumer Affairs Victoria received 98 reports of travelling con men. Authorities also noticed a shift from regional areas to Melbourne suburbs.

Winter leaves boaties flat By Neil Walker BOATIES should check that their vessels are in good condition before taking to the sea for the first time in months as summer approaches. That’s the message from the Carrum Volunteer Coast Guard which has already had to rescue some stranded seafarers in recent weeks due to electrical and mechanical failures on boats. Coast Guard spokesperson Deanne Semmens said many

boaties packed equipment away for winter but neglected to check it was in seaworthy condition before setting out again after the winter break. “Just ensure you do basic mechanical checks before you go out again for the season,� Ms Semmens said. One of the most common problems causing boats to become stranded at sea is a flat battery. Often, the battery has enough charge initially start up

but boaties then struggle to restart their vessel’s engines after fishing for the first time in the summer months. Ms Semmens said boaties should also check their safety equipment, including flares and lifejackets, are not out of date. ď Ž Get boat/personal watercraft licences for summer from Carrum Volunteer Coast Guard every third weekend at Launching Way at Patterson Lakes.

Founder ‘devastated’ by fuel trucks furore By Mike Hast THE founder of Cootes Transport says he is “devastated” by the furore surrounding his former company. Ian Cootes, 71, started with one fuel tanker in Frankston in 1965 and built up the business to be one of Australia’s leading tanker firms with about 800 employees before selling out 13 years ago to ION Ltd and resigning from its board 10 years ago. “First and foremost, my condolences go to the families of the two people killed in Sydney,” he told The News from his home in an inner Melbourne bayside suburb. He was also sad for employees of the company “who have worked diligently for many years”. Mr Cootes would not be drawn into criticising the company that now owns Cootes, the Queensland-based McAleese Group, which bought it from CHAMP Private Equity about 18 months ago. Dozens of Cootes-branded trucks have been taken off the road after inspections in Victoria and NSW found defects in much of the fleet. The inspections came after a Cootes tanker exploded in a northern Sydney suburb last week, killing two people and injuring five. Cootes tankers being put off the road saw many service stations run out of unleaded petrol, diesel and gas earlier in the week when people panicked and bought extra supplies. The fuel “drought” has raised questions about the security of supplies, especially in big cities like Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide as many servos

Devastated: Cootes Transport founder Ian Cootes, who sold his former Seaford-based fuel and gas trucking company in 2000.

typically have just three days’ supply. The Ian Cootes story is a classic one of building up a company by hard work, safety and engineering innovations, new technology, looking after employees, and being in the right place at the right time. In 1965, Mr Cootes would drive his tanker to collect fuel in Port Mel-

bourne (and later from a Dandenong depot supplied by BP’s refinery at Crib Point) and deliver it to about 24 servos between Seaford and Sorrento as well as on the Western Port side of the Mornington Peninsula. His truck carried the BP colours but he owned it. He’d do three loads a day and later employed a night driver.

In 1974 Mr Cootes won a contract to deliver heating oil for BP so bought more road tankers and built a depot in McCulloch Ave, Seaford, later moving to another site nearby. Ian Cootes was known as a stickler for keeping his fleet well maintained. A Frankston man told The News he and his father were contracted to lay bathroom-type tiles in a below-ground service bay where mechanics worked on the underside of Cootes vehicles. “We’d never seen anything like it; the place was as clean as a Formula 1 pit area.” When Cootes was sold to ION in late 2000 for cash and shares, it had 106 LPG tankers, 250 prime movers and 160 fuel trailers as well as trailers for carting chemicals and bitumen. Cootes had 70 per cent of the fuel tanker market and an enviable record of 17.5 per cent compound revenue growth for the previous decade. Mr Cootes joined ION’s board, staying for three years before retiring in October 2004 and selling shares that had been part of the sale. In April 2002 it was reported under the headline “Tanker driver cashes in $5.4m worth of ION” that Mr Cootes had decided it was time to take a few profits from his shares. It proved to be a prescient move. But the ION shares he retained lost value when the company had technical problems building its alloy casting business. This was the beginning of the end as ION went into administration in 2004, another victim of the decline of Australian manufacturing. The company also had a vehicle

transmission plant in Albury and a plant in Auckland making wheels for Ford. Mr Cootes said the company had a 50-year partnership with BP and a 35year partnership with Shell and the gas industry. In 2003, Mr Cootes was inducted into the “Shell Rimula Wall of Fame”. He was praised for introducing electronic delivery information; establishing an LPG terminal, a propylene plant, and a jet and aviation refuelling facilities at Melbourne Airport. “Ian has developed and introduced many world-class initiatives to the transport of dangerous goods, liquids and gases,” the citation stated. “Tanker construction developments have been designed and built in-house within the engineering division. “Ian has created employment conditions that have attracted a very loyal team of drivers, workshop and operations staff. “The top 60 longest-serving employees have more than 1000 years of service with Cootes.” Mr Cootes has been a member of the Australian Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association, the Australian Road Research Board, and the National Bulk Tanker Association. He was chairman of The Alfred hospital’s foundation for six years and is now deputy chairman. He supports many charities including the Variety Club. A former Cootes driver posted a comment on a Melbourne radio station’s website on Monday: “I bet these trucks would never [have] had these faults if Ian still had control of the company.”

Gaming venue rate sting back on agenda From Page 1 The Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission’s Counting the Cost report estimated there are 30,000 problem gamblers in the state. The report noted Melbourne’s south has the second-highest number of at-risk and problem gamblers, in line with the second-highest concentration of pokies in Melbourne metro areas. Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation figures reveal City of Kingston’s 17 gaming venues had 956 electronic gaming machines as at June last year, the sixth highest number of pokies machines out of 79 local government areas in the state. Nearly $79 million was spent on electronic gaming machines gambling in the 2012-13 financial year in Kingston. Cr Geoff Gledhill said problem gambling should not to be encouraged but he was hesitant to impose “an unnecessary” impost on hotels and clubs that provide employment in Kingston, despite “some of their gambling revenue” being “a problem for us”. “These businesses have sources of gambling but they do offer the community more than just that,” Cr Gledhill said. He said any rates rise would not make any difference to the increasing problem of online gambling. “I understand that that’s a problem that’s becoming more evident right across the community,” he said. Cr John Ronke agreed problem gambling is a blight on the community. “We have a moral obligation to help those who, without being condescending, can’t help themselves,” Cr Ronke said. However, Cr Ronke said he had reservations about imposing higher rates on the likes of Chelsea RSL, a not-for-profit organisation that spends any profits back into community activities. Councillors agreed to defer any further action on the issue until a council meeting later this month. Moreland, Monash, Moonee Valley and Darebin councils have clashed with the state government over differential rates on gaming venues. The Municipal Association of Victoria called state government moves to ban differential rates “a direct assault on the autonomy of councils’.

Into the deep: Artist Nicole Macdonald with an art piece from her Hidden, Unseen, Unknown exhibition in Parkdale. Picture: Gary Sissons

Hidden face of mysterious deep STRANGE sea creatures are on display at Shirley Burke Theatre in Parkdale this month. Visitors can submerge themselves in the deep dark waters of artist Nicole Macdonald’s Hidden, Unseen, Unknown exhibition. Northcote-based artist Nicole is a former Mordialloc and Mentone resident who fell in love with bayside beaches and finds deep sea creatures “beautiful and terrifying”.

“Deep sea creatures in my art are a metaphor for the terrifying and unknown,” Nicole said. The 26-year-old works at Arts Project Australia with artists with intellectual disabilities when not focusing on her own artwork.

paelia and other soloists from the band giving individual performances.

FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

Performance MT Eliza singer-songwriter Lachlan Bryan and his band The Wildes have been in the music industry since 2008. This brilliant alternative-country performer, who has been travelling under the mainstream radar, came from left field with his alternative swamp country album Black Coffee (WJO), which smashed its way into the ARIA charts, debuting at No 4 on the Top 20 Australian artist country albums chart, No 6 on the Top 40 Country albums chart and No 12 on the Top 20 Australian artist albums chart (all genres). In 2012 Bryan released his solo album Shadow of the Gun, and embarked on an epic 23-state tour of the United States. It was on this tour that he wrote most of what would become the new record, inspired by rundown hotels, roadside diners, desert landscapes and cheap, supermarket sixpacks. The title track, for instance, was written at 9am on a napkin in a Mexican restaurant outside Chicago. “Shadow of the Gun was a dark album for me and it was where I was at the time, written over a few years,” he said. Bryan used the album to express the complex array of feelings swirling around inside him. Black Coffee was an entirely different project. He wrote all the songs earlier this year and recorded them at Music Cellar Studios in Erina on the NSW central coast in two days. 309 is the debut single from Black Coffee, which was co-written with Bill Chambers who also sings on the recording. “Bill and I liked this song a lot,” Bryan said. “And when it came time to record, it only seemed right to share the vocals. It appeals to the wicked side in both of us.” “Bill Chambers is one person in the industry for the music. He puts music first and you can tell. “Bill is always helping other people; he is talented, genuine and I

By Gary Turner

have connected with Bill on a musical level; he is the real thing.” “309 set the scene for the vibe of the album. It’s a driving album and 309 is a highway song. People are coming up to me saying they love my new album and that is as good as being on the charts.” Singer-songwriter Melody Pool helps out on backing vocals on seven of the 10 tracks and shares vocals with Bryan on Forty Days and Nights. “We are like brother and sister. She can play anything with strings and, like Bill, Melody only has music crossing her mind. She has a big future.” Bryan is influenced by Bob Dylan, Steve Earle, The Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson, Graham Parsons, Jack White, Joe Pugg, Paul Kelly and Gillian Welch.

He has shared the stage with Steve Earle and John Hiatt. Bryan describes Nick Cave as smart and stylish. “Nick Cave makes me feel patriotic.” Bryan paid tribute to his manager, Tracey Collier. “Tracey has suffered some incredible misfortunes in the past few years but she kept believing in me and gave me huge support in putting this album together. Much credit goes to Tracey.” I asked Bryan about Nashville. “Eventually we will release Black Coffee in the US and follow up with a tour. “Not so much as breeze into Nashville and be a star but I want to do the travelling troubadour thing and travel around the countryside doing gigs. Even singing to 50 people is a good gig. It’s better than a lot of jobs I have done.”

Bryan deployed The Wildes for this album, the band he formed in 2008, meeting the drummer, Mat Duniam, on a train trip to the city. Most band members are Mornington Peninsula musicians including guitarist Andy Wrigglesworth (also part of the Weeping Willows), Shaun Ryan on bass guitar, Mat Duniam on drums, and former Toorak College teacher Laura Coates (Weeping Willows). Bryan played guitar, piano and vocals. Other performers players on Black Coffee included Zoe Rinkel (vocals), whose father Erik is a drama teacher at the Peninsula School, Melody Pool (vocals), Rod McCormack (banjo, dobro and organ) and Texan pedal steel player Tommy Detamore. Black Coffee was produced by Bryan, The Wildes and Rod McCormack,

ing together. During my 40 years of marriage to darling we had arguments big and small. She would order me out of the house, always I refused. If a super argument she would threaten to walk out of our marriage. I would say “go” but generally the reply was words to the effect that I would have to pay. Occasionally darling would in fact go, into the night, for hours. Maybe hide in the car, visit a shoulder, who knows? It would blow over, never sure of whose fault, but mine according to darling. Pay her credit card, problem vamoosed, all sweet. Later, living alone, I realised I had underestimated darling’s true value tenfold. Unless you have a partner who beats you or disrespects you why do it? It’s almost always a loss. A lonely future sometimes selfishly glamourised by false thoughts of freedom (?) and sex. Everybody pays, particularly the kids. Forget it. It’s a comfortable bed, albeit in separate rooms, and cheaper. Enjoy. *** ALWAYS amusing when News Limited journalists cry fowl on misreporting. Terry McCrann, right wing coalition financial journalist for the Herald-Sun writes a piece on Paul Barry (Media Watch; ABC TV) and Paul’s bias against News Limited, highlighting “loose with the truth” to suit a per-

ceived left wing point of view. Andrew Bolt trainee Rita Panahi with her usual diatribe on smoking (second hand smoke often blows into indoor areas adversely affecting 87% of us sensible folk) follows up on Barry (lunatic left). To prove their honesty, integrity and sensibility, why not write a similar article on the Coaltion climate change policy in the light of the IPCC report (259 scientists from 30 countries) and the 90 to 95% liklihood humanity is warming the planet? Not in a month of Sundays. Two pots and the kettle. As it happens I agree with Terry. Paul Barry is a pain we all know where, definitely loose with the truth. *** LIKE flies to a honeypot. Many years ago the newspapers were sprouting Nunawading as “the place to be”. I thought they had gone troppo. Flat and dull. Wrong again Cliffie. They bought and moved in their thousands, a massive spider web of lost streets, crescents and the dreaded courts; seemingly all happy little vegemites. But time moves on, now it’s apartments, way up in the sky with water views, or cheaper glimpses, and restricted stickybeak neighbours. The luxury lifestyle, the 25th floor, the bay, boats, a massive kitchen-living area. Even Frankston?

No newspapers at breakfast; mustn’t miss that view. Eat and enjoy. Wall TV’s playing the breaky news in the background? No thinking required. All so easily convinced, like those buyers of safer cars, a la subaru forresters? Weird stuff. Baaa. *** MEDICAL rules revisited: A heavy cold, influenza or bedridden you suffer in silence, unless you have a partner. If in need of pills or have a mysterious pain you see a doctor who will advise you to stop smoking. If you fear anything of a really serious nature you go to the lovely people staffing the Rosebud hospital where I spent Saturday night 21/9. One gorgeous girl on the counter and a second gorgeous girl checking my blood pressure. Fixed me up nicely, bossy; escaped 1am. Well done ladies and doctor. Which reminds me, what happened to the “one-stop shops” for aged care services allowing people to seamlessly move from basic help at home to residential aged care services, and after hours GP services? Where is Teddy Baillieu? *** COLLINGWOOD heroes Jolly, Didak and Shaw brutally discarded after wonderful service and “rat pack” references alluding to a form of cancer. Benny Johnson able to retire with dignity, Thomas escapes. Perhaps the ac-

and engineered by Jeff McCormack and recorded in McCormack’s Music Cellar Studios. Best tracks include 309, Forty Days and Nights, Black Coffee, some early 1950s-style country with Kiss Me or Kill Me, the up-tempo Dragging My Chain, and You. Bryan will launch Black Coffee at the Tamworth Music Festival at Family Hotel at midday on Friday 24 January. He will appear at the Revolver Bandroom in Prahran on Wednesday 13 November and Peninsula Music Festival in Mt Eliza, on Sunday 12 January 12. For more information and a copy of Black Coffee, visit www.lachlanbryan. com or email tracey@kickmusic.com. au *** PINK will release her live DVD, which was filmed in Melbourne on 22 November. The Truth About Love: Live from Melbourne was filmed at Rod Laver Arena in July. It will be released two weeks before it appears on the shelves in the US. Pink played a record-breaking 18 shows at Rod Laver Arena to more than 250,000 fans. *** SIXTIES rock band The Kinks is talking about a reunion to mark the band’s 50th anniversary next year. Lead singer Ray Davies said: “I was talking to my brother Dave (vocals and guitar) two weeks ago and we are negotiating.” The Kinks was one of Britain’s most enduring and respected groups with hits You Really Got Me, Waterloo Sunset, Lola, Apeman, Sunny Afternoon and more.

A Grain of Salt HAWTHORN, a likeable club with dreadful colours deserved victory despite charity goals in the first, second and third quarters, confusing the dockers by playing the wide open spaces. We wonder why the AFL forced Fremantle to play a final at Geelong, disallowed the wearing of their purple shorts and insisted their qualifying final be played at night? Alistair Clarkson a genius; Ross Lyons an also ran? Nonsense of course. Sports reporters get well paid for rubbish. Enjoyed Wayne Carey, Paul Roos and Greg Baum, not so Mark Robinson due to unrelenting bias throughout the Essendon supplements scandal though egged on by the patronising Gerard Whateley. Again the AFL was all about money at the expense of supporters, particularly families. *** WHY so many divorces? In my day there was very little thinking. We went out with girls (if lucky), met one who was mad about you and you enjoyed her love, particularly the hanky panky, and got married. That was it. Move to step two, as in the job, kids, good times, arguments whatever, with the thought of divorce never an option. True, thinking was no great part of our DNA but we knew the option of living alone was far worse than stay-

Me versus ‘The Man’: part one

By Stuart McCullough EVERYBODY loves an underdog. Trouble is, ‘underdog’ status is generally well deserved and anyone stuck with the title is more likely to suffer an absolute trouncing than they are to triumph against the odds. This is especially so when your adversary is not another person or even a team but a corporation. When doing battle against a company, you are not merely pitting yourself against a brand name and logo but the very establishment that permits big business to get away with murder of not only the blue, but red, beige and turquoise variety also. When faced with such a foe, it is very much a case of ‘the underdog’ versus ‘The Man.’ In his masterpiece, ‘1984’, George Orwell wrote about an all-powerful authoritarian figure he called ‘Big Brother’ and, for decades, this term symbolised tyranny and general awfulness. Then, in act of supreme irony, it was turned into a TV show so putrid that people looked back with fondness to a time when ‘Big Brother’ represented oppression and not a soulsapping time sink where the lowest common denominator digs itself a basement for the sole purpose of descending even lower. My only hope is that the producers of the television show will return to the source and conclude the series by ensuring that Big Brother does to the housemates what he did to Winston in 1984. Given that the term ‘Big Brother’ is currently in use, we must now refer to ‘The Man’. In broad terms, ‘The Man’ represents all that you and I are born

to resist. ‘The Man’ is to blame for everything wrong in the world; from the melting of the polar ice caps to the new Miley Cyrus album, through to the fact that the car spaces at your local supermarket are ever so slightly too small to fit a standard sized car. It’s ‘The Man’ who gave us Hyper-colour t-shirts and, in a fit of pique, took them away again, before later deciding that hipster jeans might be a good idea. The Man is cruel, unkind and dedicated to making your life more difficult. ‘The Man’ was also to blame for airing ‘Breaking Bad’ on pay television rather than free to air. I’m not ashamed to admit that I became addicted to the adventures of Walter White in ‘Breaking Bad’. So much so that I was reduced to downloading

episodes as soon as they were available for sale rather than waiting for the DVD. It became something of a ritual. I would arrive home on a Tuesday, download the next episode, then watch it on the computer. It was, so I thought, perfect. Until it all went wrong. I was purchasing the show from a very large company that, for the sake of anonymity, I’ll refer to as ‘Orange.’ Frankly, I’m still getting used to the idea of being able to purchase movies and music without getting up off the couch. When it works, it’s incredible. But when something goes wrong, it’s like being robbed of a superpower. At first, everything seemed fine. I clicked the ‘purchase’ button and was greeted by the standard and, no doubt, foolproof warning that, ‘This purchase

may contain objectionable material,’ and asking me to vouch that I was over fifteen with my mouse. But without warning, I was told there was a problem and the purchase could not be completed. I was marooned. I was directed to check my account. It declared that there was a problem with the previous purchase and informed me that I was now in debt to Orange Corporation to the tune of three bucks ninety five. All it could suggest was that I get another credit card. This sounded like an over-reaction. I decided to call. Problem was, finding a number was akin to trying to find a needle in a haystack. Granted, I could have downloaded the ‘Needle In A Haystack’ app from the Orange store, but it would have set me back

another ninety-nine cents and, in any event, I couldn’t because there’s a problem with the account. Eventually, after several links whose sole purpose it was to discourage human contact, I found a phone number. I can still remember an era before call centres existed. I can’t be certain, but I’m pretty sure people were happier then. There were fewer wars, the sun shone and butterflies filled the air. As is the way with call centres, I was first placed on hold for about forty minutes during which the same thirty seconds of music were played repeatedly on a loop. For a company that sells and has access to millions of pieces of music, this seemed deliberately provocative. When I eventually got through, it was like being transported to a magical far-away land. Judging by the accent, the magical kingdom in question was New Zealand. After explaining myself, the call centre staff member looked at my account before returning to tell me that it wasn’t working. This much I had figured out for myself. Indeed, had this not already dawned on me, I would have been unlikely to have subjected myself to eighty consecutive performances of ‘guitar noodle’ in the hope of getting through. She then promised to escalate it and I assumed she meant to the United Nations or Geneva but, as it turns out, she meant to India. I was told they would be in touch. I immediately looked to the heavens to see if they’d already activated the Bat-signal before she said they’d email me. I could only wait. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Ceremony held at Tyabb school, fruitgrower meeting goes bust Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 18 October 1913. AT the Tyabb State school, No 3129, on Tuesday, 7th of October, a very pleasing ceremony took place. It was the presentation of the A.N.A., prize for the best kept school ground in the Metropolitan No 1 school area extending from Albert Park to Flinders. The presentation consisted of a large picture entitled ‘The Opening of the first Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia.’ Cr A. J. Alden, chairman of the school committee, occupied the chair and introduced Cr D. Buckley, of the Balnarring A.N.A., lodge, who attended with Mr Berryman to make the presentation. Cr Buckley congratulated the teachers and scholars on the condition of their well-kept ground and of being successful in gaining first prize in the A.N.A., competition in such a large area. He (the speaker) also hoped that the same energy would be displayed in the future as had been done in the past, not only in the school ground but in school work generally. The head teacher, Mr T. H. White, thanked the members of the Balnarring Lodge for their attendance, and stated that the grounds in the future would not be neglected, and that the present success was very gratifying and would be an inducement to increase energy. Mr White also thanked Cr Alden for his presence. *** THE last meeting of the Somerville Fruitgrowers’ Association, which was to be held in the Mechanics’ Hall on Monday evening, lapsed owing to

there not being a sufficient number of members present. Only two members, besides the president and secretary, were in attendance, the inclemency of the weather no doubt accounting for the absence of others. *** IT is reported that Mr F. C. Doherty, of Mornington, has disposed of his livery and letting stables to Mr Daw, of Melbourne. On Friday, November 14th, a grand concert in connection with the Hastings branch L.O.L., will be held at Hastings. Full particulars will be given later. *** IN the paragraph of thanks to the ladies who assisted in the opening of the wing of the Boys’ Home, appearing to last week’s issue, the name Mrs D. H Chandler should read Mrs T. D. Chandler. *** THE Home Mission Fund collection recently made at St. Paul’s Church, Frankston, resulted in £8 7s 6d being subscribed to the Fund. This is the largest amount ever collected with the exception of last year. *** AN important unreserved clearing sale of furniture and effects, poultry, etc., will be conducted by Messrs Brody and Mason at their rooms, Frankston, on Wednesday next. Owing to the large quantity of goods to be disposed of, the sale will commence at 1 o’clock sharp. *** THE object of the Frankston Choral and Orchestral Society’s concert at Somerville is to raise money to try and make the Society self-supporting,

and this in itself should warrant a good attendance. *** WE are pleased to state that Mrs Coop, wife of our genial boniface, is slowly recovering after her recent severe illness. Mr A. C. Westaway, who also has recently passed through a severe illness, is now, his many friends will be pleased to learn, on the high road to recovery.

It would take a Sherlock Holmes - the best of his life to find any appreciable difference, in meaning at any rate, in the two paragraphs.

*** THE beautiful soaking rain which fell at the beginning of the week in this district came not before it was wanted. One resident reports having engaged a man to plough, but the ground proved too hard, and the

ploughing had to be postponed till after the rain. *** THE adjourned meeting of the Mornington Shire Council was held on Monday last instead of Thursday, as was first intended. Though all the councillors were notified previously to that effect, no word was received by us, therefore our reporter was not in attendance, though, fortunately, through the courtesy of our contemporary, we were able to get a full report of the proceedings. As we were not notified on the usual meeting day that the meeting was to be adjourned our reporter was in attendance as usual, and he was politely told in the street that there would be no meeting, as some of the councillors would be away. He interviewed the secretary (Mr Crosbie), who told him the same thing, and added that the meeting would probably be held on the following Thursday. In the absence of any news to the contrary, we took it for granted that last Thursday would be the meeting day, and arrangements for our reporter to attend were consequently made. The first intimation that any alteration had been made was when the mail on Tuesday evening brought a memo from Mr Crosbie as follows: “Our meeting was held yesterday. I quite forgot to let you know that they decided to hold the adjourned meeting on Monday instead of Thursday, as they first intended. Some of my councillors took exception to the paragraph in your paper in reference to the meeting lapsing for want of a quorum, and would like you to correct it

by saying, ‘that owing to several of the councillors not being able to be present it was decided to adjourn the meeting until the following Monday.’ -Yours truly, J. CROSBIE.’ The paragraph in our last week’s issue read as follows:- “There was no meeting of the Mornington Shire Council on Thursday, owing to a sufficient number of members not being present.” It would take a Sherlock Holmes – the best of his life to find any appreciable difference, in meaning at any rate, in the two paragraphs. The “some of my councillors,” as our report shows, was Cr Bates, who said the paragraph was a slur on the Council, especially the new members, as it represented that they were not attending the meetings. He moved that they be asked to contradict it. It will be seen by the corrected paragraph we were asked to insert that “owing to several councillors not being able to be present it was decided to adjourn the meeting until the following Monday,” while in the preceding paragraph of his memo, Mr Crosbie says, “I quite forgot to let you know – that they decided to hold the adjourned meeting on Monday instead of Thursday, as they at first intended.” Sure there is something wrong somewhere, or why such a conflict of statements. In justice to our subscribers and ourselves we make this explanation of our reporter’s absence from the Council table, and all we can do is to take Mr Crosbie’s explanation, that he “quite forgot to let us know.” As for the corrected (?) paragraph, well, further comment is needless.

A big day for the batsmen PROVINCIAL By IT Gully IT was a great day for batsmen on Saturday in MPCA Provincial cricket with all batting teams in strong positions heading into the second day. Heatherhill, Mt Eliza and Mornington all scored more than 250 runs batting first, while Sorrento and Peninsula Old Boys managed 230 or more against Mt Martha and Langwarrin respectively. The lowest score of the round was 185, scored by Baxter on the normally slow Baxter Park ground.

So heading into day two this weekend, all bowling sides will be in the box seat to win the match. There were no triple figures on Saturday, Mt Eliza’s Luke Marshall top-scoring for the day with 94 and Mornington’s Ben Clements hitting 93. Former Frankston Peninsula legend Darren Groves was the best of the bowlers over the round, claiming 5/23 for Rye against the Mounties. At Lloyd Park, Langwarrin spin king Dwayne Doig again tweaked his way to a bag of wickets, taking 7/73 against the Old Boys.

Doig bowled 36 overs and had nine maidens. The Old Boys batted their entire 80 overs, finishing on 9/230. Mornington won the toss and batted against Crib Point. While Ryan Martin went early in the day, Anthony Gapes and Clements put on 119 for the second wicket, Gapes making 59. Matt Foon was quickly in the sheds for a blob before Luke Popov joined Clements at the crease. Popov scored 46. Henry Dolphin was the pick of the Magpies’ bowlers with 3/64.

Sorrento made 232 in 67 overs against Mt Martha. The Reds had to face the last 12 overs on the day and finished on 1/10. They have a lot of work to do at their Sorrento ground. Dean Shaw top-scored for Heatherhill with 75 at the top of the order, helping his side to 260 against Moorooduc. Randill Gamage was next best with 47 while skipper Matty Meagher helped himself to 41. Sushant Gupta was the best of the Ducs’ bowlers with 4/54, while Shaun Manby was up and about again with

the ball, snaring 3/61. While Luke Marshall scored 94 for the Mounties on Saturday, Timmy Strickland blasted a quick-fire 42 against Rye. A score of 263 is going to be hard to chase down for the Demons at Wooralla Drive. Dale Irving top-scored for Baxter with 33, while Darren Uccello opened the batting with 32 against Long Island. Baxter finished their 80 overs at 9/185. The Islanders used seven bowlers, Scott Phillips the pick of them with 3/39 from 15 overs.

Delaney brothers put on a willow show DISTRICT By IT Gully SOMERVILLE brothers Ben and Sam Delaney put on a batting clinic in their match against Hastings in MPCA District cricket on Saturday. The pair was brought together at the crease when the Eagles were cruising at 4/140. The brothers stayed together in the middle to ensure the home side secured a commanding position. Sam made 78 runs in the 83-run partnership, while Ben went on to score 100.

The tail wagged nicely too for the Eagles, ensuring they passed 300, finishing their 80 overs on 8/328. Last year’s grand finalists are in a strong position to roll the Blues this weekend. Ben Johnson was the best of the Blues bowlers with 2/61, while Luke Hewitt claimed 2/63. The match between Seaford and Boneo is in the balance. Boneo was superb with the ball, bowling first and dismissing the home side for just 116. Cameron Williams took 3/15 and Chris Jobling 3/32 as the visitors

ripped through the Seaford batting line-up. The only bats to make an impression were Ryan McQueen with 33 and David Anderson with 34. However, the Boneo batsmen couldn’t back up the great work of their bowlers. At stumps after facing 40 overs, Boneo was reeling at 5/86. Leigh Lowry is back in the sheds after scoring 22 and Ryan Jellie raised 20. Jon Guthrie top-scored for Delacombe Park in its match against Carrum with 42. Underated all-rounder Shane Deal

scored 41 and Steven Anderson 31 to help the Parkers to 218. Before Deal and Anderson came to the crease, the Parkers were in some serious trouble at 7/136. The start was good, Guthrie and Andrew Christides (34) producing a 59-run opening partnership. However, the home side lost 6/77 to be in some trouble. Liam Dobson was the best of the Carrum bowlers with 3/36 from 13.2 overs. Main Ridge batsmen have a lot of work to do to chase down Seaford Tigers’ 264. While Jason Albress (4/85) and

Scott Millar (4/96) did the job with the ball for the Ridge, it couldn’t prevent a strong total on the small Main Ridge ground. Ballam Park is in super strife again, already losing to Baden Powell. Bowled out for just 72, the Braves are already at 5/122 and will be eying an early season outright. Anjula Perera picked up 3/9 for the Braves, while Rhys Elmi was the top scorer on the day with 26. Pines is in the box seat against Flinders after bowling them out for just 135. Pines is 1/10 in reply.

A hard worker gets 100 SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully CARRUM Downs skipper Steve Worker scored an impressive century on Saturday to put his side in a commanding position heading into day two of the match against Pearcedale. The Cougars were in some early trouble at 4/89, before Worker came to the crease to join Anthony Hunter. Hunter went on to make 49, while Worker finished unbeaten on 101. The Cougars were eventually bowled out with nine overs to play for 276. Justin Heysham was the best of the Pearcedale bowlers with 3/15 from 12 overs, while Kaine Smith claimed 3/45 off 13. Chris Dew also took two wickets.

In reply, the Panthers are 0/11. Balnarring is in awful trouble against Rosebud. The Buds batted first and didn’t have the greatest of days, being bowled out for 178. At one stage, the Buds were reeling at 7/59, but Mathew Maher (70) and Jason Nagel (24) took the score to 162. Nagel was then able to back things up with his bowling, picking up 2/14 from 14 overs to have Balnarring on the back foot. Brian Doughty also claimed two wickets and Jason Pierce one to have the visitors in all sorts of trouble at 5/46. Tootgarook has already beaten Dromana. The Hoppers batted first and were dismissed for 127 in 36 overs. Zac Klan and David Timmer top-scored for the home side with 29 each. Tootgarook then needed

only 44 overs to score 191 and seal victory. Brilliant Red Hill all-rounder Simon Dart top-scored with 87 in his side’s 233 against Frankston YCW. Lincoln Toy scored 29 and Jayden Pain 27 to help the Hillmen to a more than competitive score. Paul Bradley was the best of the YCW bowlers with 4/34, while Adam Muirhead also helped himself to 4/65 from 23 overs. In the final match, Tyabb has set Skye 223 for victory after Ben Van Wees (46) led his side to 222. The Tyabb middle order had a real impact, Rienzie Wijeratne scoring 35 and Jack Raeside 33. Leigh Smith and Paul Fillipone picked up 4/60 and 4/82 respectively.

Recruits for Hillmen RED Hill coach Tony Blackford said last week the recruits would continue and he hasn’t let the faithful down. The Hillmen added Frankston YCW dual premiership player Paul Wintle to the list last week. You can add Wintle to Jarred Eames from

Karingal, Nick Batemen from Frankston Dolphins and Blake McCormack from YCW. They will also sign a 100-game VFL midfielder this week. Former Hastings forward Dylan Hand is also in the mix up the Hill, while another key forward from a peninsula club is being targeted. “We have room for one more I think and then I believe we’ve had a very good recruiting period,” Blackford said.

Karingal hires Coates KARINGAL has appointed Steve Coates as senior coach.

Devilbend Golf Club

Coates, best known for his work at Noble Park, has had coaching stints at both Garfield and ROC. His connection to Karingal came through Troy Callahan. Coates will be a non-playing coach. His first task will be to try and stop the avalanche of players who are said to be leaving. Dale Alanis and Steve Charalambous have been linked to other clubs, as has Chris Hay. Hay said last week he hadn’t spoken officially to any clubs about making a move. “I’d like to get some of the money I’m rumoured to be getting though,” “Cocky” said.
