Councillors back Peulich power push By Neil Walker KINGSTON has a new mayor with councillor Paul Peulich stepping up to the role for the first time. Cr Peulich was elected unopposed at a Kingston council meeting last Wednesday evening after expected rival, fellow North Ward councillor Steve Staikos, withdraw from the mayoral race. The 29-year-old was first elected to council in November 2008. He works in Kingston and has a keen interest in business and sports-related issues within the municipality. He has a long-term involvement in Kingston sports, has been a member of Moorabbin Little Athletics since he was five years old, and represented Australia at international athletics championships. Outgoing mayor Ron Brownlees said he had known Cr Peulich for many years and was sure the new mayor would act in the best interests of Kingston residents. An anticipated tight contest for the mayorship failed to eventuate. The News understands a non-binding informal poll between councillors held on the Monday evening before the formal election of Cr Peulich had the two potential mayoral candidates tied on four votes each. Crs Tamara Barth, David Eden and Rosemary West were rumoured to be backing Cr Staikos while Crs Tamsin Bearsley, Ron Brownlees and

Geoff Gledhill were believed to have thrown their support behind Cr Peulich. Cr John Ronke did not attend the councillors’ catch-up on the Monday. Councillors traditionally consult each other on their voting intentions before the formal vote to elect a new mayor to notify the winning candidate and allow the new mayor to enjoy the occasion. Cr Peulich’s elevation to the mayorship capped a remarkable turnaround in his political standing among fellow councillors over the past twelve months. Before last year’s mayoral election in November, there were allegations that Liberal Upper House MP Inga Peulich lobbied Kingston councillors to vote for her son in his bid to become mayor last year. Ms Peulich denied the allegations. Cr Ron Brownlees was subsequently elected Kingston mayor for the fifth time, after an 8-1 vote against Cr Peulich. In March this year, Cr Peulich told The News he believed councillors had formed a political bloc to silence him at council meetings after several issues he raised were not debated after they were not seconded by another councillor. The month before, Cr Peulich failed to have five notices of motion for debate seconded. Cr Peulich said he believed councillors now understood each other better after working together for a year since the last council election. Continued Page 7

Premier cops waste blast By Neil Walker PROTESTERS greeted Premier Denis Napthine and his ministers when he arrived in Kingston on Monday for a State Government community cabinet meeting at Patterson Lakes Community Centre. Some Kingston residents used the occasion let the Premier know they are unhappy about Kingston possibly becoming "Melbourne's waste hub" and the area's green wedge lacking protection against materials recycling operations. A Sustainability Victoria discussion paper, issued in September, lists Kingston as one of several possible options as a location to process metropolitan Melbourne's waste. An interim protection issued by Planning Minister Matthew Guy last week, prohibiting materials recycling including concrete crushers in Kingston's green wedge failed to placate the protesters. The Kingston Residents Association organised the rally, attended by about 50 protesters. The residents' group president Maureen Lim said Mr Guy's intervention "is a good first step" but was unlikely to halt an application by Delta Group to build a concrete crusher in Heatherton. "We are not celebrating the Planning Minister's 18-month ban as it does not and can not guarantee that the Kingston planning scheme amendment process will prohibit materials recycling," Mrs Lim said. "A cynic might read the 18-month ban on materials recycling as just a stunt to remove attention from the Green Wedge until after the upcoming state election." Kingston Council wrote to Mr Guy asking for the interim protection to be reinstated after a previous two-year protection order lapsed in June 2010. Councillors have since failed to agree on how best to protect Kingston's green wedge from materials recycling facilities. North Ward councillors Steve Staikos and Tamara Barth have unsuccess-

fully tried to convince councillors at several council meetings to support the rezoning of land north of Heatherton Rd from Special Use 2 to Green Wedge A to permanently protect the area from more concrete crushers. Cr Staikos feared the new interim protection would have to bearing on Delta Group's concrete crusher application, lodged in September this year. “Council has been calling upon the minister to do this for quite some time and it’s good he has finally responded but I hope it's not too late for the Delta Group application.” Ms Lim said residents are concerned Kingston's green wedge is being discussed as a possible location for a
waste management hub for Melbourne. “Our parliamentarians need to know that our Green Wedge, which includes parts of Heatherton, Dingley and South Clayton, is not to be trashed by any means,” Ms Lim said. Kingston Mayor Paul Peulich thanked Mr Guy for moving to implement the interim protection order. "This breathing space will allow council to develop a full planning scheme amendment setting out how this unique part of Kingston will be used now and into the future,” he said. Cr Staikos said council must act to protect Kingston's green wedge from further waste management activities. "I will continue to work to ensure
Kingston does not become Melbourne's waste hub," Cr Staikos said. "We have to take the next 13 months to get an appropriate planning scheme in place to stop this happening." *View the statewide waste and resource recovery infrastructure plan at www.sustainability.vic.gov.au.

Frankston line ‘back on track’ LATEST data shows the reliability of Frankston line trains has improved over the past three years. In October, 92.9 per cent of trains were on time compared with 71.1 per cent in October 2010. Mordialloc MP Lorraine Wreford said last week that new figures showed Metro’s train punctuality had improved on every one of its 16 lines. “There’s more to do, but the Frankston line has clearly improved more than the other 15 train lines under the Coalition,” she said. “It shows what focus the Victorian Coalition has had in its commitment to improving the Frankston line. “For the whole of 2010, only 70 per cent of Frankston line trains were on time, and there were months where only 62.6 per cent and 65.5 per cent trains were on time.” The Frankston line had been the worst in the state “by a long margin”, she said, but that had now been turned around. “Its performance is trending up, has been over 89 per cent since April 2012, and there is still $100m of improvements to come. However State Labor MP Jude Perera said trains on the Frankston line were only able to achive improved reliability by regularly bypassing the City Loop, despite being scheduled to stop there. Reports show 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 directly to Flinders St instead of travelling through the five City Loop station to make up time and avoid backlogs across the networks. “What Frankston line 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 Perera said.
Party people on prowl for venues, police warn POLICE are warning Kingston venue owners to check the credentials of people hiring halls for functions after several recent instances of halls being hired by unlicensed young party planners. Kingston proactive police unit sergeant Michael White said the amateur party hosts, who typically arrange par-
ties through online social media, had a blatant disregard for public safety. “Some of the organisers booking the venues claim the event is to raise money for charity but it’s a profit-driven exercise and the only people benefitting from the party’s proceeds are themselves,” Sergeant White said. Sergeant White said those respon-
sible for hiring out venues should ensure the function is registered with the police's Partysafe register. The PartySafe register ensures police have prior notice of an event so they can quickly help if there is trouble. “Police are happy to work with legitimate party organisers,” Sergeant White said.
Public safety is a major concern and in many instances the party organisers have no public insurance liability in place despite charging partygoers an entrance fee to attend an event. The number of young people attending the parties can exceed 500, far more than the capacity of venues being hired. Police will be contacting
venue owners across Kingston to warn them about irresponsible party organisers booking functions under false pretences. “If in doubt, don’t hire the hall out,” Sergeant White advised. Visit www.police.vic.gov.au for details of Victoria Police’s Partysafe program. - Neil Walker

Nip in air for little life savers BONBEACH Life Saving Club nippers got back in the water last weekend despite a chill in the sea air. The club's summer nipper season began on Saturday 16 November and its younger members were excited to dive into the ocean's waves. Club junior coordinator Dawn Walterfang said the club currently has about 90 nippers but there are still places available in 13-16 age group and under 8s category. Nippers at the club are aged between five and sixteen years old. Ms Walterfang said nippers learn how to be water wise at the beach. “It reinforces the skills they learn in the swimming pool, but in the open water environment which is a bit different,” she said. “It's a sports environment where all age groups get together at the same time so everyone can take part, unlike some other sports. It's a familyfriendly club.” Ms Walterfang said some club nippers go on to become life saving volunteers at Bonbeach Life Saving Club or with Life Saving Victoria. Bonbeach Life Saving Club welcomes nippers to training sessions over the summer months until April next year at 5.30pm on Fridays. Visit www.bonbeachlsc.com.au for further details or call Dawn Walterfang on 0417 100 701.

Homing in on shared economy
Garage sale hailed success
By Neil Walker WHEN IT contractor Andy Hemsley set up his own small business he realised working from home can be socially isolating despite the accompanying freedom of avoiding the daily grind of travel to the office. The 46-year-old Highett resident has now decided to try to find a solution by bringing the co-working concept to the suburbs. Co-working is a “sharing economy” idea where new entrepreneurs gather to share ideas and encourage each other to reach their business goals. “About four years ago, I started noticing a movement in the US, where individual business startups were using each others’ apartments to work together,” Mr Hemsley said. The co-working concept gathered global momentum and Mr Hemsley said there are about nine co-working spaces in Melbourne. “I just thought this needed to spread out further to the suburbs, to give people in the outer reaches of Melbourne, out towards the Mornington Peninsula, the chance to participate.” Mr Hemsley and his venture partner Darren Sharp, editor of Shareable Australia’s online magazine, have set up a co-working meet-up initiative called Southside Coworking and its latest office space offering is based at Mordialloc Motor Yacht Club on a two-month trial basis. “The essence of a co-working space is to have an awesome location for people to work, and I was having a coffee in Mordialloc one day and noticed club and its views of the creek and boats as a possible great place to
KINGSTON snared fourth place on the Victorian council leader board for the annual Garage Sale Trail. In the third year Kingston has taken part in the national event, residents made a record 92 sales, about 30 per cent more than last year. A total of 7,012 sales were registered nationally. Three Kingston residents were awarded prizes by Kingston council for their sales efforts. Kerry Palmos, of Parkdale, won a VIP family experience at Carols by the Bay on 15 December. The $150 prize includes seats in the reserved area, access to the ‘green room’ to mingle with the stars of the show and enjoy the refreshments, and fun Christmas accessories. Jon Francisco, of Mordialloc, and Patterson Lakes resident Eleanor Johnson each won a 10 pack of swim passes to Waves Leisure Centre in Highett. Kingston mayor Ron Brownlees said the event had enjoyed widespread support from the community and helped raised awareness of the importance of recycling. “The Garage Sale Trail has many benefits; as well as being fun for bargain hunters, it helps build community connections and reduce landfill,” Cr Brownlees said. A range of free sustainability workshops are held by the council throughout the year. The next workshop, which is on 1 December in Clayton South, will teach participants how to create new clothes by “upcycling” old clothes or op shop finds. Bookings are essential and can be made by calling 9581 4713 or by emailing ourplace@ kingston.vic.gov.au.

go to work,” he said. Mr Hemsley approached the yacht club and its committee agreed to allow Southside Coworking to use space at the clubhouse in the short term to determine whether there is enough interest in the concept in Mordialloc. Southside Coworking has about 40 members at the moment and participants include corporate contractors, media workers, creatives and graphic designers with their own start-up businesses. Membership is currently free so Southside Coworking's founders can find out whether there is sufficient
interest in the south-east suburbs in sharing office space. Mr Hemsley and Mr Sharp both have full-time jobs and presently operate Southside Coworking as a community project. Home-based small business owners from Mordialloc, Bentleigh and Mt Martha have worked at the Mordialloc Motor Yacht Club temporary office. Mr Hemsley encouraged other small business owners in the area to visit the weekly co-working sessions held each Friday at the club. “People don't have the chance to mingle and go to an office are literally
stuck on their own and isolation can mean they don't follow deadlines, for example,” he said. “If there's enough interest, we can run a range of co-creation sessions to find out how people want a co-working space to run.” The duo hope to eventually have enough members to lease an office for co-workers on a longer-term basis with flexible "rent a desk" options a possibility. Visit www.meetup.com/southsidecoworking-community or www.southsidecoworking.com for further details and to register an interest.

Peulich is new mayor
Manned gates a write of passage EDITHVALE playwright Kieran Carroll was inspired to write his latest work by childhood memories of walking past the manned railway gates at Brighton Beach each day on his way to school. He vividly remembers the gatekeepers cheerily waving to him as he walked to school nearby. “It was just a small thing – a man taking the time to wave as you passed through,” he said. “But it’s the kind of thing that builds a community.” Those boom gates and the men who operated them will soon be nothing more than a distant memory, with construction underway on new gates at Brighton Beach. Human interaction will no longer be required. Carroll’s play, The Last Manned Gates At Brighton Beach, is a heartwarming comedydrama that combines fictional characters within a factual story, following the lives of three men who have worked at the gates for decades but now face redundancy. The play completed a well-received run of shows at the Bayside Literary Festival in June and is now set to be performed at the Shirley Burke Theatre in Parkdale. Parkdale resident Dom Phelan plays one of the three leads. Carroll said political bickering since 2007 over the demolition and rebuilding of the Brighton Beach boom gates made it perfect fodder for social commentary – and comedy. Two men who manned the gates went to see the play and gave it the thumbs up. “The men depicted in the play age throughout the play right through until the age of 70 in one case,” Carroll said. “Their experiences are the basis for some sadness and heartbreak, but also a lot of laughs.” The Last Manned Gates At Brighton Beach is on at Shirley Burke Theatre From 26-28 November. Enquiries and bookings: 0429 235 751.

LETTER FROM THE PREMIER
From Page 1 “There’s been a lot of water passed under the bridge and the relationships have evolved to the point where people know and understand each other,” Cr Peulich said. His fellow councillors congratulated Cr Peulich on his election as mayor and said they looked forward to working through the many issues affecting the municipality during his fixed oneyear term as mayor. Cr Staikos said he decided not to officially run for the mayorship when it became clear Cr Peulich had the support of the majority of councillors. “It would have been a closely run contest but becoming mayor is a special day and I wanted to show the dignity due to the occasion,” Cr Staikos said. He said green wedge issues continued to divide council and relationships between councillors had become fraught in recent months but he hoped the next year would be “smoother”. “I really want to work with Cr Peulich during his time as mayor,” Cr Staikos said. “We have always got on well on a personal level despite some of our differences on policy issues.” Cr Ronke said he decided not to attend the straw poll held by councillors because he was informed both candidates would stand for election no matter what the result of the informal vote was. He said he had discussed the reasons with Cr Staikos why he backed Cr Peulich but declined to elaborate.
“It’s best to keep it in-house at the moment although Steve Staikos is one of the best councillors I’ve worked with on council. He is a brilliant person with outstanding ethics,” he said. He stressed his backing for Cr Peulich should not be regarding as a socalled “casting vote” since four other councillors also backed the new mayor. He said he hoped issues could be debated on their merits over the coming year of Cr Peulich’s mayorship. He said some councillors “are taking things personally.” “Councils are supposed to be about not breaking into factions but there is a case of ‘them and us’ developing,” he said. “This is the worst council I’ve been part of – it’s not a pleasant place to be around.” Cr Ronke’s view of recent council debates has been echoed by other councillors. Councillors have regularly been split on planning issues, especially with regards to the green wedge in the past twelve months. Cr Peulich will now chair council meetings as part of his mayoral duties and his vote could provide crucial on contentious issues. “It will be a challenging year,” Cr Peulich said. “I want council to make decisions and end the debate. The community deserves a council that works together.” He said he would like council to refocus its attention on encouraging business growth and employment opportunities in the city of Kingston.
As we enter another summer, fire safety needs to be a priority for all Victorians and I encourage every household to update their fire plans. People living on Melbourne’s fringe need to be especially careful. If you live near a park, the bush or grassland, you also need to understand your fire risk and be ready to act. Last summer, a large, fast-moving grassfire threatened Epping, Wollert, Kalkalo and Donnybrook, damaging properties and putting residents on high alert. The fire was unexpected and a reminder that the fire threat on Melbourne’s fringe is real. This Fire Action Week (beginning Sunday November 17), find out what to do if a fire starts near your home or workplace, and get prepared. If you live next to grassland you should have already cleared weeds and removed firewood, rubbish and other fuel from around your property. If a grassfire starts, you need to act quickly and put two or three house blocks between you and the fire. Avoid driving in a grassfire because it may be smoky and hard to see, and traffic jams and accidents are likely. Don’t try and get a closer look at a grassfire – you will put yourself and others in danger. If you don’t live directly next to grassland and a grassfire starts, it is safer to stay where you are because it’s unlikely the fire will spread past fences and houses. In the event of a fire, it is also important to wear appropriate clothing including long sleeves, long pants and sturdy footwear. It is important to prepare in advance for fire danger by talking to your household about what your plan is for fire danger days. For more planning and preparation information, or to check Fire Danger Ratings this summer, go to cfa.vic.gov.au, download the FireReady smartphone app, or call the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667. The Hon Dr Denis Napthine MP Premier of Victoria

Book in for friends’ slice of history THE Friends of Mentone Train Station and Gardens Group believe in doing things by the book in their voluntary efforts to protect the historically-listed train station, and now they have published a book. Winning Friends: The Mentone Station Story was written by renowned Kingston historian Leo Gamble and produced by Mordialloc publisher Helen Merrick-Andrews late last year. The book chronicles the group’s ongoing commitment to protecting the station and its surrounds after its formation in 2002 when the community discovered the station gardens were under threat due to the possibility that the whole area could become a bus interchange. Mentone Train Station Group chairperson Dorothy Booth said the successful campaign to save the station gardens galvanised the Mentone community.
“The station gardens have become the focal point of the community,” Ms Booth said. “It's heightened community spirit and made the Mentone precinct safer.” In 2006, the group fought for and won a state heritage listing for the station buildings and gardens. “We wanted to ensure the station and its gardens was kept in great condition for future generations,” Ms Booth said. Friends of Mentone Station and Gardens Group president Dorothy Booth and publisher Helen-Merrick-Andrews will discuss Winning Friends: The Mentone Station Story at Mentone Public Library, 36 Florence St (rear of the CAB building, opposite post office), Mentone at 11am on Saturday 30 November. Entry is by gold coin donation. Morning tea will be provided. For enquiries and bookings, call 9583 5648 or email: email@example.com

Melbourne and surrounding areas switch on 10 December 2013* The analog TV switch off is happening on 10 December 2013* – and there’s no turning back. After this date you won’t see anything if you’re not ready for digital-only TV.
What do I have to do?
Chelsea – Mordialloc
Remember, to keep watching free-to-air TV shows, you’ll need either: • one set-top box or a digital TV recorder for each analog TV you use; or • a new TV with a built-in digital tuner. Most importantly, you do not have to buy a new TV if you do not want to. Most antennas and cabling should work after the digital switchover. However, if you have any concerns about your reception, you may consider asking an endorsed Antenna Installer to check your antenna and cabling. If you have any other questions, or to find your nearest endorsed Antenna Installer, visit our website or call the Digital Ready Information Line.
Don’t put it off any longer. Get ready for digital TV today. *Please note: switch off may occur earlier in some towns. Residents in these towns will be informed about the switchover dates. See the website for more information.

Community groups snare grant bonus
Ready, able and willing SPECIAL needs need not be a barrier to employment and an Edithvale cafe is leading the way in giving those with disabilities the chance to learn job skills and gain employment. The @260 cafe bar in Edithvale has partnered with the Complex Institute of Education in Melbourne to offer long-term unemployed people with special needs real-life work experience. The institute’s students work towards completing a Certificate III in Hospitality and a job placement is part of the course to give them a taste of real-life work. Café owner Maria Di Battista said the institute approached her with the idea of helping longterm unemployed people back into employment and she was happy to help. “It gives the students experience of looking after customers and we give them some training to help them get up to speed,” Ms Di Battista said. She said it can be hard to find reliable staff but most of the students who had worked at @260 café bar had a good, hard-working attitude and went on to find full-time employment in at restaurants or bars. Complex Institute of Education hospitality trainer Ashley Rohamally said the students paid for the courses themselves and were keen to find work. Many of the students are referred to the institute by Job Services Australia. “It’s all about training them up to get them off the dole,” Mr Rohamally said. “Most of the time, they get a job after they complete the course and we commit to organising at least one interview with a prospective employer for them.” Ms Di Battista finds it enjoyable to do her bit to help the students find work. Her son suffered a period of unemployment lasting just over one year. “It could be any one of our children,” she said.
TEN Kingston community groups received a total of $33,000 in this year’s Kingston Charitable Fund grants. Health and education, emergency and financial counselling, a community garden and hampers to give disadvantaged children a brighter Christmas are just some of the worthwhile projects being undertaken by these groups which will be supported by the grants. The Kingston Charitable Fund is a partnership between council and the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation. The Fund started in 2007 with an initial $100,000 donation by Council, which was matched by the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation. Interest from donations to the Fund is distributed as grants.

Flowers power poppy pals THE 7th Chelsea Aspendale Scout Group decided to do their bit to honour war veterans ahead of Remembrance Day earlier this month. The scouts ventured out onto the streets of Chelsea to sell poppies and commemorative pins in aid of Chelsea Longbeach RSL. Group leader Jim McAlinden said some of the venture scouts came up with the idea to help raise money to support war veterans as part of
the "Scouts in Action" community project. "It pushes the kids to think about more than themselves," Mr McAlinden said. Mr McAlinden said the venture scouts organised their own rosters to sell the poppies and pins. They volunteered for up to four hours each on Saturdays and Sundays leading up to Remembrance Day on 11 November.

Napthine paves way for more CCTV cameras MORE closed-circuit television cameras will be installed throughout Kingston after a council application for further funding was approved by the state government. Kingston council applied for an additional $225,000 to install surveillance cameras in August, on top of $125,000 already received for CCTV in Gnotuk Ave, Aspendale and around Moorabbin train station. Premier Denis Napthine used his visit to Kingston on Monday for the state government’s community cabinet meeting to confirm the funds request had been successful. “This initiative will be a fantastic boost to community safety," Dr Napthine said. “These CCTV projects have the support of the Kingston community with nearly 85 per cent of local residents and traders surveyed supporting the use of CCTV in the area.”
Kingston Council and the State Government will fund CCTV at five additional sites including the Station St shops opposite Carrum train station, the Mordialloc train station forecourt, the Woolworths car park in Chelsea and Chelsea’s Victory Park. Kingston Mayor Paul Peulich said the CCTVs would help promote a safer environment, discourage inappropriate behaviour and provide a useful support tool for police. “Our community believes Kingston is a relatively safe city, but like the rest of Victoria, some in our community feel less safe at night time,” Cr Peulich said. “We are committed to a partnership approach to promote and provide a safe and healthy environment and appreciate the support from the State Government and emergency services.” The new CCTV cameras are expected to be installed and operation by July next year.
Setting sail: Chelsea Yacht Club opened its yachting season with the club’s first race of the summer. Picture: Gary Sissons
Sailing into new season IT was full sail ahead as Chelsea Yacht Club opened its yachting season with a race off Chelsea beach last weekend. Club commodore Brett Williams said the opening day of the season was a perfect opportunity to get the life members down to the club and have a celebration. “We had good sailing conditions
and it was great to get back out on the water,” he said. The club has about 300 members, including social members, and Mr Williams said new members are always welcome. “We also have a training facility, so beginners can come along and learn how to sail safely,” he said.
The club’s spring and summer yachting season sails until the end of April next year. Visit www.chelseayachtclub.com.au or call Chelsea Yacht Club president Colin Williams on 9772 2854 or 0431 835 813 for further information on membership or sailing lessions at the club.
New garden a bloomin’ success EARLY last year, Richfield Village Community Garden Club members Rose Greenhalgh and Heather Glossop decided they needed a bigger garden to grow more vegetables for the retirement village. Some spare ground was found, a plan was drawn up and approved between the garden club and the owner of the Richfield Retirement Centre at Aspendale Gardens. Fund raising began for fencing, access gate and water supply. Raffles were run and a “hoedown” was held to raise funds. The owner donated some money and the Aspendale Gardens-Edithvale Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank chipped in $1500.
Fences, a gate, water reticulation, paths, allotments, shed were built and installed using the money raised. The planting began and an area was set aside for a herb garden for use by all retirement centre residents. Many residents supported the project with their time, money, expertise and encouragement. The official opening of the garden area took place late last month. Carrum MP Donna Bauer officially opened the new garden. Bendigo Bank representatives also attended. A barren piece of soil has now been turned into a community space to be enjoyed by Richfield Retirement Centre residents.

AROUND THE REGION
High aims for holiday experience LOOKING for a holiday with a difference, Deborah McDonell decided it was time to try out the high life. Two months of research later, Ms McDonell was booked and in training. The high life suggested by her friend would take her close to the top of the world – trekking in the Himalayas, including Mt Everest base camp. “It wasn’t something I had planned to do, but I was excited about the forthcoming adventure,” Ms McDonell said. That was 18 months ago. Her “amazing” 13-day journey took place last month and included adventures and near-misses reserved for those seeking extreme experiences. Faced by a daunting 135-kilometre trek at an altitude of 5000 plus metres, the Mornington Peninsula resident began specifically training for the physical demands that would be required. “I researched doing some altitude training but it was expensive,” she said. “I’ve been doing
bootcamp with Hanley’s Fitness in Mornington for a few years now and Ty Hanley, who runs the program, and his partner Di helped me prepare for the experience by concentrating on all aspects of my fitness including cardiovascular, strength and diet,” Ms McDonell said. Ms McDonell joined a group of 12 Australians for the trek, which was led by a team of four Sherpa with four to six porters carrying their packs. The high point of the trip was climbing 5500 metres to be at the top of Kala Patar at sunrise “with 360-degree views of the Himalayas, Everest base camp and Chola Pass”. The clear skies and sunshine at the summit contrasted with getting caught in an avalanche while trekking through snow knee to waist high. “Our head Sherpa was very experienced and with the assistance of the other Sherpa ensured that all of the trekkers were safe and survived the experience,” Ms McDonell said. “We were told that to trek around the base of a
mountain following recent snowfalls, we needed to go in small groups and keep close to the side of the mountain. “As a group of four we were moving from one rock shelter to the next. During one of these moves I became aware of a thunderous roar, looked up and the snow was just coming down. Instinctively, I just crouched down and ducked my head into my chest. “After the snow stopped falling, I looked around and two of the others in the group were being plucked from the snow by the Sherpa and one of the trekkers was not to be seen. “Fortunately he was safe; no injuries but it was certainly not an experience that any of our group will forget, because not only snow came off the mountain but also rocks, which fortunately missed another of our group.” The trek ended at “busy, crowded” Kathmandu, “which is an experience in itself”. Keith Platt

Hospitals bear brunt of dump and run plan
No sign: Police have been unable to locate the body of a Melbourne University student from New Zealand who was swept into the sea after rescuing a friend at Pearses Beach a week ago. Picture Yanni
No sign of missing student POLICE divers conducted a final search last week for the body of a New Zealand student who disappeared in rough surf off rocks near Blairgowrie after he had jumped in to rescue a friend a week earlier. Divers conducted an extensive search of the rocky coastline at Pearses Beach last Wednesday but were unable to find the 20-year-old man’s body. Underwater search efforts – following the Melbourne University student’s disappearance on Wednesday 6 November – have been hampered by poor weather and rough seas. Police search and rescue officials said no further dive operations were planned in the area at this stage but Parks Victoria would continue to monitor the shoreline. Police believe the man was swept under a rock ledge or crevice, rather than out to sea, based on interviews with his two friends, who had wit-
nessed his disappearance. The man, a New Zealand resident of Korean descent, was visiting the peninsula with two friends when one of them slipped off rocks into rough seas. Sorrento police said the man had bravely jumped into the water and helped his friend safely back onto the rocks but was then swept underwater when hit by a large wave as he attempted to climb out. A rescue helicopter arrived within an hour but was unable to locate the man. Uniformed police from a number of Mornington Peninsula stations were joined by the police air wing, search and rescue divers, and SES and coast guard volunteers to continue the search the following day, while more searches were conducted over the past week. The man’s mother, father and brother visited the area last weekend accompanied by police. Chris Brennan
By Chris Brennan AMBULANCE waiting times at Frankston Hospital are now longer than at any other major emergency department in Melbourne, figures released by Ambulance Victoria and made public by the state Opposition last week reveal. Labor’s Parliamentary Secretary for Health Wade Noonan said the state’s gridlocked health system was forcing ambulances to wait outside hospitals longer than ever before, with Frankston the worst affected. The latest figures, obtained by the Opposition under a freedom of information request, reveal ambulance ramping times at Frankston Hospital blew out from an average of 709 hours a month over the 2009-10 financial year to 1275 hours in 2012-13, an increase of 566 hours. “The figures prove what paramedics have been saying for a long time – that ramping at hospitals has never been as bad,” Mr Noonan said. “Longer ramping times means patients are waiting longer to get into hospital and there are fewer ambulances available to respond to life-threatening emergencies. This places lives at risk.” The figures came on top of a report released the previous week that showed Frankston Hospital had among the state’s worst-performing emergency departments. Peninsula Health’s latest annual report revealed it had failed to meet the majority of targets set by the state government for timely treatment of patients at Frankston Hospital. The hospital was able to transfer patients from ambulances within the required 40-minute time frame just 56 per cent of the time – well short of the target of 90 per cent set by the state government – which was undermining Ambulance Victoria’s ability to respond to new cases.
A lack of beds and funding shortfalls were blamed for the hospital’s inability to meet targets. However, the state government last week unveiled new measures aimed at improving patient transfer times, with hospitals now required to assume immediate responsibility for people as soon as they arrive by ambulance. Health Minister David Davis released a report from the Ambulance Transfer Taskforce, which was formed to develop improved ways to transfer patients from the care of Ambulance Victoria to hospital emergency departments. Mr Davis said all recommendations of the taskforce would be adopted, as the government adopted “a whole-of-system approach to emergency care” that would “more sharply delineate responsibilities between Ambulance Victoria and emergency departments”. The report recommended Ambulance Victoria work to ensure “optimal distribution of ambulances” to avoid the clustering of arrivals. This would also be achieved through better information sharing between emergency departments and Ambulance Victoria, and enhanced by the progressive implementation of ambulance arrival board technology at major metropolitan emergency departments. But critics of the move, who included doctors, nurses and paramedics, said the issue could only be fixed by more hospital beds and that new measures would simply shift the problem from Ambulance Victoria to hospital staff. The Opposition also slammed the new measures as a “dump and run” policy. “Without the additional promised beds and staff, this dump and run policy will simply deepen the pressure on our failing health system,” Mr Noonan said.

World-class luxury ONE of a only a handful of peninsula properties that could be described as world class, “Bushy Park” has been meticulously designed and appointed with breathtaking luxuries from around the globe. The 22.25-hectare property has been owned by the Hodgins family for more than 100 years, and standing pride of place is the magnificent, 1116-square metre reproduction of “Oak Alley” – a historic mansion found on the banks of the Mississippi River in the community of Vacherie, Louisiana. Defined by its sheer size and extravagance, the design innovations are sure to leave a lasting impression. Built about 12 years ago, the home spans two levels, both offering panoramic views across the manicured grounds and two of the property’s three lakes. There are two kitchens and multiple formal and informal living zones that will be perfect for any type of gathering. Complementing the four bedrooms are three bathrooms, including the palatial ensuite for the master bedroom. The set-up rivals the finest five-star hotels. Testament to this is the inclusion of a lift as an alternative to the sweeping staircase. Other time-saving features include a ducted heating and vacuum system. The gorgeous grounds boast more than one hectare of lakes, making this grand estate a private lifestyle retreat with an overwhelming sense of serenity and beauty. Like many properties of this stature, “Bushy Park” is a working property, offering plenty of business potential. An enormous three-car garage is positioned under the roofline of the home, and there is office space in the home and the many outbuildings. Two factory-style sheds total more than 1700 square metres offering plenty of storage for machinery and heavy vehicles. With the peninsula more accessible than ever, this enticing location is under an hour’s drive from Melbourne and, to capitalise on the lifestyle this area is famous for, wineries, beaches and fine dining are all close by.

Cloud accounting gives business edge By Sean Limpens - BCV Financial Solutions IN the tough economic environment, business owners are craving proactive, timely advice, not a history lesson. As an accountant I’m often asked by a potential client what I can offer them that their existing accountant isn’t offering. The answer: Cloud Accounting. So what is a cloud accounting system? It’s quite simple really. It’s a system that sits ‘in the cloud’ (that is, on the internet), and is accessible from any computer or mobile device with internet access, anywhere in the world. This means that you, your business partner, selected employees, your bookkeeper or your accountant (in fact anyone you desire) can access real-time accounting data for your business, anywhere, any time. Compare this to the old-school accounting software that sits on one computer, can only be accessed when you’re in the office or the study at home, and requires you to download a data file (when you get around to it), and trot off to your accountant several months after the fact for some ‘timely advice’. That’s assuming your computer hasn’t crashed, taking all your hard work with it! Another key feature of the stronger cloud systems is that data feeds directly from the client’s bank account into the ledger. This provides several advantages – it minimises data entry, it allows you or your bookkeeper to keep on top of the minimal data entry that is required, but most importantly,

it allows your accountant to view real-time data for your business. When you call your accountant seeking advice, they should be able to provide it based on what’s happening now, not on your financial results of 12 or 18 months ago. Cloud accounting allows the accountant to deal with the present, not the past. This is key – cloud software isn’t
the magic ingredient to develop your business – proactive advice is. Cloud accounting is the pathway to proactive advice. Is it secure? That’s the most common question we’re asked when we talk about cloud accounting software. The most advanced systems (such as Xero, which we favour) use security equivalent to that used in internet
banking. Further, these companies back up data on servers in multiple, secure data centres, meaning your data will never be lost. Too often we hear of clients who have lost months of data entry as their computer has crashed or laptop has been stolen. This can’t happen with a cloud solution. Is it expensive? Another common
question. No. In fact cloud solutions are generally far more cost-effective than ‘off the shelf’ products, and offer the benefit of cheaper, monthly subscriptions, as opposed to an up-front investment of $500-$1,000 for PC-based software. The ease of use of these systems, together with the reduction in data entry, should also reduce bookkeeping costs. ‘Off the shelf’ software packages also generally require an expensive annual update, while cloud solutions usually include all updates in the monthly subscription. The case for cloud accounting continues to mount. Cloud accounting really is the way of the future. But it’s here and available now, for businesses of all sizes. Is your accountant embracing the cloud? BCV Financial Solutions have been offering clear and sound business advice since 1999. Our company is a members of the Proactive Accountants Network (PAN), an exclusive network of approximately 300 accounting firms Australia-wide.

The passport to new adventures By Stuart McCullough WHEN you turn eighteen, nothing seems so important as getting your driver’s licence. The simple act of being able to reverse park is the closest thing we have to a welcoming ceremony for adulthood. Not that it’s all about driving. Granted, the ability to drive a car represents a level of freedom that perfectly complements the coming of age. That’s so even when the car in question is a puke-green 1982 Daihatsu Charade. But in addition to driving there’s also the matter of being able to attend a pub. Not that everyone gets their license exactly on turning eighteen. I, for one, had been worried about my year 12 exams and had done nothing about learning how to drive aside from opening the doors and switching cassettes in the tape deck – both of which I had almost mastered. I finished year 12 just about the same time as I hit my first real milestone and, of course, all the people I went to school with were eager to go out. Turning up at the door of a licensed venue and expecting them to take your word that you’re over eighteen is something I now do with confidence but, then, seemed to be a recipe for disaster. Being the ‘pre-Internet’ age, recipes for disaster were still quite rare and could not simply be downloaded from the Jamie Oliver website. Accordingly, I had to use my passport. It had been issued a few years earlier. I would later learn that photos for any official document are intentionally hideous but back then, was horrified at the picture that graced my passport. I looked so doleful and forlorn. As though the thought of having
to get on a plane was the most severe punishment my youthful mind could imagine. The picture was so bad, you could easily assume that had the camera pulled back a metre or so, it would have revealed a plaque between my hands with my prisoner number on it. My friends had decided that we were going out. But rather than attend a local venue, we would be travelling to the city. Clearly, we were out of our
Chelsea – Mordialloc News 20 November 2013
minds. We knew nothing of the city, which meant that selecting a venue was done pretty much at random. As fate would have it, we selected the Red Back Brewery in North Melbourne. Being from a small town, I was keen to ensure that I didn’t turn up looking like some kind of unsophisticated country bumpkin. For that reason, I decided to wear ‘the good shirt’. Over the years, many shirts have
held the esteemed title of ‘the good shirt’. There was the yellow one that made me look like B2’s stunt double. The undisputed title-holder for the years 1986 – 1988, however, was a purple paisley number that looked like an acid flashback and induced immediate nausea in all who happened to gaze upon it. However, in the golden year of 1989, the ‘good shirt’ was a silk number with a scratchy brown pattern that I now refer to as ‘The Brown Hornet’. At the time, I thought it was wonderful. With the benefit of a whole lot of hindsight, it was the kind of shirt that even APEC leaders would reject and almost singlehandedly ensured my social isolation. Not that I knew that in 1989. With my good shirt on and my passport tucked into the top pocket, I was ready. My friends picked me up and we began the epic journey that would take us from the Mornington Peninsula to the bustling city. A world of possibilities awaited us. However, once we arrived, it became apparent that a world of possibilities was, in fact, awaiting us at some other pub; as this one had nothing to offer other than strange tasting beer and an atmosphere that would make outer space seem welcoming. It was dreadful. There were other people milling around, but they were all huddled in groups. Wearing the ‘Brown Hornet’, it was like having a force field around me. We assumed that by the simple act of turning up, something incredible would happen. Instead, we just ended up standing around feeling awkward before deciding to call time and head back to Tyabb. Frankly, you don’t need to make a hundred kilometre round-trip to feel
uncomfortable. Such results can easily be obtained without the inconvenience of travel. Having returned from my big adventure, I went to bed and thought little more about it. That is, until the washing came out of the dryer and it became apparent that I had left my passport in the top pocket of the ‘Brown Hornet’. It now resembled some kind of forgery and was as good as ruined. The photo, which before had seemed unreasonably miserable, looked as if I’d just been caught in an unexpected rainstorm. It was ironic. I didn’t need a passport to travel from Tyabb to the city, even if it did seem like a completely separate world. Having decided to take my passport in order to travel to Melbourne, I had ruined it in the process. Whilst many others would probably try and get a replacement, I took it as a sign and swore off overseas travel for the next five years. As for the ‘Brown Hornet’, I continued to wear it for some time to come until it was replaced by a nifty little number I bought in a fit of insanity at the Queen Victoria Market that was a little bit cowboy and little bit ‘bogan’. Despite the switch in style, it would prove to be equally effective at repelling other people. At the time I referred to it only as ‘the good shirt’ but now I like to think of it as my ‘Country and Western Suburbs’ shirt. It was the kind of shirt that was really only any use if you were called upon to attend a hoedown at short notice. It was a circumstance that never arose. Nevertheless, I wore it everywhere. Everywhere, that is, except the Red Back Brewery. email@example.com

Performance THE Rolling Stones’ Sweet Summer Sun - Hyde Park Live is released this week on DVD and Blu-Ray, and Shock Entertainment has given The News a promotional prize pack to give away. It contains a DVD, Blu-Ray and T-shirt and could be yours by sending your name and address on the back of an envelope to: Rolling Stones Live, MP News Group, PO Box 588, Hastings 3915. Chronicling the Stones’ triumphant return to London’s Hyde Park with a two-hour live concert, the highlights package includes new and unseen backstage footage. More than 100,000 delirious fans packed the venue for two spectacular concerts to see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood do what they do best. The Stones delivered a five star performance packed with hits such as Start Me Up, Brown Sugar, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Miss You, It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll, Gimme Shelter, Doom and Gloom and Sympathy for the Devil, as well as one or two surprises. Jagger said: “It was a great gig… It was beautiful with the sun going down over Hyde Park. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Rolling Stones’ 50 years than doing it on our home patch in front of 100,000 people on a glorious summer night…enjoy it… we certainly did.” Richards commented: “Coming back to Hyde Park was like a full circle being drawn, and the band were in top form. We thought what could be more appropriate than having a great summer in London.” From the second the Stones stepped onto the stage each night, through to the dazzling pyrotechnic display that heralded the end of the show, fans old and new were treated to a nonstop, hit after hit performance, which took them through the Stones’ huge back catalogue. Richards wowed the crowds by weaving his charismatic guitar licks with Wood’s immense
solos, Jagger was on spectacular form, his boundless energy on stage matched by a number of stunning outfit changes, and Watts, the unflappable heartbeat, driving the band on through the set. Former guitarist Mick Taylor – whose live debut with the Stones took place at the original 1969 Hyde Park concert – joined the band on stage to guest on the bluesy Midnight Rambler and on closing track Satisfaction, while long-term live band members Lisa Fischer, Darryl Jones, Chuck Leavell, Bernard Fowler, Bobby Keys and Tim Ries all added their inimitable flair and finesse. Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park Live is the perfect way for concertgoers to relive their memories from the gigs, and for their fans to see the band back where they truly belong: live on stage in their hometown. The Rolling Stones’ Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park Live out on DVD and Blu-Ray 15 November. www. shock.com.au

NINE long-lost episodes of Doctor Who not seen since the 1960s have been recovered from a storeroom in Nigeria. The previously lost shows were among 11 traced to a TV relay station and the find brings back to life an entire six episode story. Archive director Phillip Morris unearthed the programs by looking up the records of overseas shipments of tapes made by the BBC. Mr Morris said: “I remember wiping the dust off the masking tape on the canisters and my heart missed as l saw the words Doctor Who. The newly found stories included The Enemy of the World (1967) and The Web of Fear (1968), both starring Patrick Troughton as the second Doctor. *** AUSTRALIA Post has officially marked the start of the festive season with the release of this year’s Christmas stamps, featuring familiar emblems and the traditional Nativity scene. “Australians enjoy sending and receiving their Christmas greetings through the post, it’s a more personal and real experience,” said Australia Post Managing Director and CEO Ahmed Fahour. The two traditional Christmas stamps depict the Virgin Mary and Christ Child and shepherds adoring the Christ Child. They are based on a painting by Australian artist Paul Newton, which is shown fully in the miniature sheet. The four non-traditional stamps feature familiar Christmas symbols: a Christmas tree, gift, candle and a bell. They are designed by Lisa Christensen of the Australia Post Design Studio. When choosing Christmas cards, senders should remember to select standard sizes (no larger than 130mm x 240m) to qualify for the 55c stamp rate for Australia and $1.70 (New Zealand), $1.80 (Asia Pacific) or $2.55 (rest of the world) stamp rate
and/or SBS World News viewers; ditto Age readers and behavioural type documentary watchers. I’ve yet to meet a sensible person who does not watch “rubbish” at some time or other. Why should they feel a sense of superiority purely because of any television show? *** MONEY may well be the root of all evil but it surely stands head and shoulders as No1 for true love. Being “in love” with your darling and love of your children, maybe even your country are high on the list, but money love reigns supreme. Heart love carries with it hope, fear, jealousy and sweet dreams. True, people regularly say money is not important, but it’s never by people who have none. All about “happiness” perhaps, but no money, no nothing. Money carries wisdom, honour, fame, graft and respect, earned or otherwise. “This is she on whom the whole world waits hand and foot, the all-powerful and all-ruling Goddess Money. No? Ask Andrew Demetriou. *** HEALTH Minister David Davis is banning smoking at train stations early next year to “improve the health and wellbeing of public transport users”. Pure clear air, apart from thousands of motor vehicles driving past while waiting. Bye-bye passive smoke, a scientific fact according to medical gurus. I commend, indeed
agree with all those people writing to newspapers on climate change backed by substantial scientific evidence. What bothers me is many of them wrote those same letters on passive smoking where, to my knowledge, there has never been any scientific proof. A strange set of preferences. Kids living in the streets, families living with poverty, a 15-year wait for public housing and our politicians are concerned about train stops? *** “SMALL business does better under a Liberal government”. I’ve heard this mournful cry for the past 50 years from the many letters to newspapers and some of my “business” friends. For the life of me I have yet to see evidence of small business owners doing better under either government. Promises, promises. Maybe they simply “feel” more secure, for unknown reasons. Small Business Minister Bruce Billson is on the job, looking at the 80 per cent market share of Coles and Woolworths. Expect nothing. *** AS a teenager it was generally accepted among my mates (similar to The Dead End Kids movies of the1930s) that my taste in music (songs, back then) was corny. This opinion remained over the years and survives to this day and I still don’t understand why? I have a spot on Arts About (3RPP 98.7 Sundays 11am to
midday) and nominate a song each week. Same comments - corny? Recently I nominated Gay Pirates by Cosmo Jarvis and the comment was “a very hip to the moment artist/ song- very impressed”. Bully for me; I’ve graduated, become arty-farty? Perhaps I’ll follow with Mario’s Ave Maria followed by Slim Dusty? Corny? It’s called taste. *** YES, I’m well aware there’s lots to write about on our political front; Tony’s live export switch, ditto the boats, weddings, Julie as Foreign Minister, Christopher Pyne re-writing teaching methods but after a long year of politics I thought I’d give it all a miss for a month. Anyway, it’s amusing reading all those letters from Liberal voters justifying Tony’s every move. *** HAVING said that, our mate Joe Hockey, best known as the Minister for Orchestrated Misinformation (“it’s time now to listen to the Australian people”?) is to axe the mining tax costing us $3.5 million, but not to worry, the cutting of the Schoolkids Bonus, the Low Income Superannuation Contribution and the Income Support Bonus will more than cover our losses. Joe (middle name blow) is in there punching, for us. The more expensive high-income super accounts remain in force. ***

A Grain of Salt THE Melbourne Cup long weekend began the influx to downtown Rye, it’s been and gone for now until the dreaded carnival arrives along with Greeks, Italians, Croatians, Lebanese, Asians, Latvians and Aussies accompanied by Range Rovers, Utes and jet skis. A veritable multicultural mishmash. Funny if we did the switch; 20,000 on a holiday in Melbourne, sashay along Swanston Street, five, six, seven abreast, bugger anyone wanting to pass, eating ice creams, shorts and bare chests for men, bikinis for the ladies, iPhones listening to Sir Cliff Richard, anklebiters and barking Shih Tzus. Trapped all of January, unless willing to risk life and limb on the long drive to Chelsea to lunch with my sisters. Not to worry, a small price to pay for 11 months of relative peace, assuming I can safely walk across the road to the Rye RSL. Think positive! Good for small businesses, Woolworths and Coles, (no specials ’till late February, except for cokes). Welcome all? *** I’M no Big Brother watcher; maybe a few episodes years back was enough. The real fascination is the reaction I get when I occasionally lie and suggest I’m looking forward to tonight’s episode, or whatever. “How can you watch that rubbish?” and the like, mostly with a superior attitude as to taste. This same reaction (though not as harsh) can come from ABC

By Cliff Ellen RANDOM thoughts: Find out who decided to improve packaging on almost everything we buy and jail them. Sleepmaker research into 1,000 people found two out of every three couples end the day by fighting; a simple “yes” would have solved their problems. Do you ever wonder what Eddie Obeid was like as a lad? Comic journalist master hypocrite Andrew Bolt: “Socialism is the refuge of the totalitarian”, on Clive Palmer; “sinister, irrational and a self-serving bully”; again the pot and the kettle. Forty per cent of underperforming teachers is plain nonsense; more accurately 90 per cent underperforming politicians. Leave my mate Ned (Kelly) in peace; he deserves it. A reconciliation game between St Kilda and Collingwood and another free trip for Nicky Winmar? Motive: more money for the AFL – to offset the Irish debacle? Dobbing in is a cancer, don’t fall for it. “Ninety per cent of politicians give the remaining 10 per cent a bad name” – Henry Kissinger Hooroo. www.ello8.com
100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...
Mysterious horse thief strikes again, one-legged career criminal jailed Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 22 November 1913 MR Mark Thornell was disappointed to find that his horse was not in the paddock on Wednesday morning. Someone had taken it out through the wires, as the foot marks could easily be seen. Mr Thornell has placed the matter in the hands of the police. I understand that this is not the only one that is missing. *** ON Tuesday last, before Mr B. Baxter, J.P., a one-legged man, named Thorpe, who was arrested the day before by Constable McCallum, was sentenced to one month’s imprisonment on a charge of offensive behaviour. This makes Thorpe’s 59th conviction. *** MR and Mrs Hugh Farquhar Robertson, who toured Britain and the continent for their honeymoon trip, are returning to Melbourne by the Otway. *** A EUCHRE party and dance will be held in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Wednesday, 3rd December, under the auspices of the Brass Band, the proceeds to be devoted to the purchase of uniforms. *** A SOCIAL evening will be held on Saturday, 29th inst., in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall, under the patronage of the local Branch of the Women’s National League. A good programme will be provided. *** CONSTABLE Montgomery, who
during last summer was stationed at Frankston to assist Constable McCallum during the busy months, arrived on Wednesday last, and he will again be stationed here during the summer. *** EIGHT cwt. of fish in one haul! This catch was not made by the Federal trawler, but by Messrs Burton Bros, one day last week, when, in one haul, they secured 22 immense “yellow tail,” averaging 40lbs each. *** THE financial results of the concert given in Frankston by the Choral Society are to hand:- Receipts for advertisements, 10s 6d; for door and tickets, £7 9s; total, £7 19s 6d; expenditure - printing, £17s 6d; hall, £15s; pianist, £1 1s ; performers expenses, 10s 9d; total, £3 14s 3d. The profits were £4 5s 3d. *** A LARGE number attended the lantern lecture given after church on Sunday night last, by Rev G. A. Kitchen, in St. Paul’s Sunday School. On Sunday night next another lecture will be given. The other two lectures announced for December have been altered to November 30 and December 7. An anthem will be rendered by the choir on Sunday evening. *** SOME good hauls of the wily schnapper have been made during the week at Frankston. On Tuesday, Mr W. Gregory secured 69, and on the same day, Mr F. Burton accounted for about 80. Several smaller hauls were also made. On Wednesday, Mr F. Burton “struck it rich,” and secured a haul of 92. Other fishermen have all been more or less lucky.
*** MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold an auction sale this afternoon, on the ground, Mornington Road, of a complete campers’ outfit, consisting of tents, piano, sideboard, duchesse chest, and sundries. The lot will be offered as a going concern, but if no satisfactory offer is received; will then be offered in lots. The sale will commence at 3.30 p.m. The sale is on account of the “Billikins” camp, who have disbanded.
I undertstand that Mrs Hodgins has bought a piece of land in front of the Methodist Church and intends to put residence there.
*** AT the meeting of the Frankston Branch of the White Ribbon Union, held at Miss Purves’ residence on
Wednesday’ afternoon, Mrs Twining (on her retirement as president) was presented with a handsome vase, as a slight recognition of her valuable services for the past 13 years, during which period she has filled the position of president to the branch. The presentation was made by Miss Purves, in a neat little speech, on behalf of the members, and was suitably responded to by Mrs Twining. Mrs Maucum was appointed president to the branch. Afternoon tea was then handed round, after which the proceedings terminated. *** FAVORED by fine weather, a bazaar held in aid of the funds of St. Phillip’s Church, drew large crowds to the public hall in the afternoon and evening of Saturday last. Several boats brought about 70 visitors from the mainland, the largest quota being contributed by Hastings. When the bazaar was opened to the public the display of good things was well calculated to untie the purse strings of the most frugal, and stood as a monument to the untiring labours of the committee of ladies who had all the arrangements in hand. As the day wore on, business became brisk, the various stall-holders vying with one another in their efforts to tempt from divers’ places all the stray coins concealed about the person of the unwary. The church funds will benefit considerably as a consequence. During the evening a musical programme was gone through, the principal items being songs by Misses Jones, Reid and Romeo and Mr J. Carmichael. Miss Romeo acted as accompanist. The Hastings Brass Band, under the
baton of Mr W. H. Prosser, rendered enlivening selections throughout the proceedings, and their presence was much appreciated. Rev. W. Burvill was a genial host, and those in charge of the various stalls were as follows:Clothes, Mesdames McLardy and Walton; sweets and cordials, Misses McCormick, Gullifer and Grayden; cakes, Misses McFee and Cherrie; produce, Misses Kennon and Leeson; fancy, Misses Matthews and George; Post Office, Miss McCormick; fish pond and dip, Misses H. Walton, Richards and Pryor; hoop-in, Mrs Reynolds and Mr Reardon; refreshments Misses Oswin and McCormick. *** LETTER to the editor - Sir, permit me, through your columns, to draw the attention of the ratepayers of Hastings to the existing state of affairs re the Hastings sanitary contract. I understand the agreement requires the contractor to make a round every seven days, but it has been circulated on good authority that that gentleman makes his rounds at intervals of eight, nine, or even ten days, or in other words, three rounds instead of four per 28 days, but I notice that he never forgets to charge for the fourth round, which is never made. *** I UNDERSTAND that Mrs Hodgins has bought a piece of land in front of the Methodist Church and intends to put a residence there. *** WE regret to state that Master Frank Odgers, eldest son of Mr and Mrs W. Odgers, is at present lying very seriously ill at his parent’s residence at Mornington.

CHELSEA MORDIALLOC NEWS
Sorrento opens up gap at the top PROVINCIAL By IT Gully Sorrento has some breathing space at the top of the MPCA Provincial ladder after claiming an outright win over Rye. Resuming at 0/92, chasing just 118 for a first innings win, the Sharks finally declared their innings at 4/198. Nick Jewell added just three runs to his overnight total but finished with a half century, while Liam O’Connor finished not out on 38. Jedd Flack wasn’t able to add to his overnight total of 36, while Leigh Poholke contributed 31. After being rolled for 118 in its first innings, things got worse for the Demons in their second dig when they were dismissed for 90. Nick Davern tore through the Rye
batting line-up, claiming 4/32, Ryan O’Connor snared 3/24 to give him match figures of 7/45 and AJ King claimed 2/18 to give him five for the match. The Sorras needed just 12 runs to get the outright victory and move six points clear at the top of the ladder. As predicted, Crib Point comfortably chased down the 182 set by Moorooduc in week one of their match. And it was Luke Herrington who stole the show. Coming in at three, Herrington made three runs more himself than the entire Ducs team. In a masterful innings, Herrington clubbed 185, sharing a 109 partnership with Adam Kuelen (45). The Pies finished on 5/315 after being 2/40 at one stage. The star all-rounder hit 19 fours and
nine sixes in his innings, which included two massive hits into Govenor Rd. Langwarrin’s bowlers were at their best again on Saturday against Mt Eliza, bowling out the opposition for just 106. Mal Coutts turned the game on its head when he took three quick wickets and finished the match with 3/46. This was on the back of the all-rounder’s 46 runs with the bat. Andy Johnson had a trundle and snared 2/8 bowling his off-spinners, teenage left arm quick Matt Davie snared 2/16 and Dwayne Doig pickedup 2/27. Tommy Baron was the only Mountie to offer any resistance with 31 runs. Baxter got the job done as expected against Mt Martha. Defending 9/246, Baxter rolled the Reds for just 111.
Knights bottom out DISTRICT By IT Gully Ballam Park finds itself in familiar territory on the bottom of the MPCA District table after another shocking loss on Saturday, this time against Seaford. Both teams were coming into the match without a victory in the 2013-14 season, and it was Seaford who notched up their first win of the season. After making 9/257 with the bat, Seaford was then able to roll the Knights for just 127. Anthony Joel with an unbeaten 52, along with number 11 batsman Mark Miller (34), were the only Knights batsmen to offer any kind of resistance. Eight of the 11 batsmen failed to make it into double figures. David Laing was the best of the Seaford bowlers with 4/33 from 12 overs while Mathew Herbert made it 10 wickets for the season with 3/29. Pines fell 41 runs short of chasing down Somerville’s 236. The final score flattered the Piners, who at one stage were 6/76. Jake Prosser was the only recognised batsman to get amongst the runs with 48, while number 10 Pat Jackson scored a half century and Nick Wilcox, batting at 11, made 25. Jackson and Wilcox took the Piners from 9/124 to all out 195. Pat Jackson was run out with four overs to play. Sam Delaney was at his best for the Eagles with 3/32 and Daniel Kelly and Russell Wilkes each claimed two scalps. Delacombe Park continued on its merry way, easily accounting for Hastings. Setting the Blues 269 for victory, even on the small Parkers’ ground, the total was always going to be tough to reach for the Blues. Chris Brittain was at his absolute best for the Parkers with the ball, ripping through the Blues and finishing

with 6/36. This was on the back of his 71 runs with the bat. Shane Deal also got amongst the wickets, claiming 2/25. Timmy Birch flew the batting flag for the Blues with 65 runs, while Luke Hewitt again led from the front and added 30 runs to his 3/55 in week one with the ball. Boneo celebrated its second win of the season and now finds itself equal third on the ladder. Boneo successfully tracked down the 182 runs required to pick up the win against Carrum. The visitor’s bowlers were at their finest last week and the batsmen stood up to the plate on Saturday. After a shaky start where they lost both openers with the score on 14, Boneo knuckled down and the top order came to the fore. Keeper Spencer Byatt batted patiently for his 59 and Ryan Jellie batted through the innings to finish unbeaten on 57. Jayden Sholl was also strong when he needed to be and hit 21 runs off 39 balls. Boneo got the total after losing just five wickets. Main Ridge easily accounted for Baden Powell. After bowling out the Braves for just 159 last week, the Ridge then batted beautifully, eventually calling it quits with their score at 3/187. Michael Holmes opened with 55 and Gareth Wyatt finished unbeaten on 51. Wyatt now has 301 runs for the season. Brendan Rossborough contributed 28 not out. Nathan Rice with 2/23 was the pick of the Baden Powell bowlers. Seaford Tigers made light work of Flinders and it was Corey Hand who was front and centre once again. After making 96 with the bat last week, Hand snared 2/27 to be one of his side’s best with the ball. Mark Carroll was also exceptional with the ball for the Tigers, claiming 4/33 from 10 overs. He was the seventh bowler used on the day. Tommy Clements was the best of the Flinders batsmen with 40, while skipper Andrew Power made it 289 runs for the season with 32.
Darren Uccello was up to his old tricks, claiming 4/10, while Sam Wolsgrove helped himself to 3/38. Mitch Darville was the best of the Mt Martha bats with 35, while Brett Wilkinson hit 29. The Reds lost their last seven wickets for just 46 runs. In not so good news for Baxter, the in-form Adrian Mack broke down in his fourth over of the day. Peninsula Old Boys got on the board with a 16-run start against Heatherhill. After making 190 last week, Heatherhill started extremely well with the ball, having the Old Boys in some early trouble at 3/47. However, Eivion Bowen and Glenn Prendergast got things back on track with a 41-run partnership. The Hills got back on top though and
had the Old Boys in trouble again at 7/130. Justin Parkes (19) and Adam Gailitis (23), along with Adam Jones (14), were able to ensure there was some wag in the tail and get the Old Boys across the line. They finished on 206. Daniel Woods had a day out with the ball for the Hills, bowling 16 overs and finishing with 5/51. Long Island was punished by Mornington. The Islanders resumed on 4/22 after bowling out the Doggies for 129 last week. However, the Mornington bowlers stayed focused on day two and rolled the Islanders for 70. Scott Phillips top scored with 29. For the Dogs, Luke Popov finished with 5/24 and Matt Foon was just as good claiming 4/37.

Nagel boys’ double act get Buds over the line SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully ONE of the Peninsula’s finest cricketers, Jason Nagel, almost single-handedly won Rosebud the weekend game against Carrum Downs. However, he did have a little help from his 16-year-old son, Patrick. The former league medal winner came to the crease at number nine after the Cougars had taken a team hat-trick and had the Buds on the ropes at 8/129. Chasing 194 for victory, the game looked gone for the Buds. However, Jason Nagel was soon joined at the crease by his son, who was also in the First XI for the first time.
Together, Jason and Patrick shared a 42-run partnership. Jason then had the support of Jason Peirce, who was able to stick around long enough to ensure that the Buds got to 201 before Nagel was bowled by Carrum Downs’ Chamara Perera. It was a memorable victory for the Buds and even more so for the Nagel boys. Perera finished with 3/60 from 23 overs and Steven Worker claimed 3/50 from 25 overs. Skye’s bowlers did a sensational job on Saturday defending their score of 144. Pearcedale resumed its innings at 0/7, however, lost wickets regularly and were eventually rolled for just 127. Matt Cousland was the best of the Panther’s
bats with 29. The day belonged to the Skye bowlers. Ben Milano was the pick of the bowlers with 5/22. Leigh Smith and Paul Fillpone helped themselves to two wickets each. Tyabb tried gallantly to get the 275 set by Dromana in week one of their match but eventually fell 34 runs short. The Yabbies started quite well and Luke Rus made 77 in the middle order to give the home side a real chance. However, some key wickets followed and the Yabbies were playing catch up after that. Dromana used just four bowlers for the afternoon. Andrew Thompson did the majority of the damage, bowling 15 overs and finishing with
5/37. David Timmer claimed 3/70. Balnarring and Red Hill went toe-to-toe in a one-day game and it was the Hillmen who finished on top. The Hillmen batted first and scrambled to 112 off 38.4 overs. It didn’t look like a match-winning total. Riley Shaw top scored for Red Hill with 31 while James Wisken was the best of the Balnarring bowlers with 4/18. Red Hill’s bowlers did a great job and bowled out the home side for just 90. Luke Toy was the pick of the Hillmen bowlers with 4/25. Brenton Taylor top scored for Balnarring with 34.

New course for Movember MORE than 70 golf enthusiasts joined Australian golfing legend, Craig Parry and Deputy Mayor of Frankston, Cr Colin Hampton, at the Centenary Park Golf Course in Melbourne for the official opening of the new Precision Fitting Centre and Driving Range on Monday 11 November. Following the cutting of the ribbon to open the new state of the art golf technology centre, Craig Parry and Cr Hampton struck the first balls from the facility. An 18-hole charity golf day followed with all proceeds being donated to Movember in support of men’s health. Golf course operators and PGA professionals Steve Montgomerie and Warren Young said: “We are proud to partner with the Frankston Council to provide world class golf club fitting and teach-
ing facilities, a first for the Mornington Peninsula. Using the latest technology in swing and club diagnostics means we can improve any players’ game regardless of age or ability. We even put Craig Parry under the microscope and found that we could add further distance to his tee shots through fitting a different shaft to his driver.” Despite the windy conditions the charity golf event was a huge success, raising over $7,000 for Movember. The new Performance Fitting Centre and practice range is located at the Centenary Park Golf Course, McClelland Drive, Frankston, and is open to the public with club fitting and lesson bookings by appointment. Contact the course on 9789 1480 for further details.
