Pokies get the all clear By Neil Walker THE odds of Edithvale-Chelsea RSL hitting the jackpot in its quest for more gaming machines have shortened significantly after Kingston councillors voted not to oppose the application, despite a council report finding the extra machines would be “detrimental” to the community. The RSL is now on target to get the

additional 15 poker machines it applied for in September, which would give the Chelsea venue a total of 80 gaming devices. Kingston council held a special meeting on Monday evening to discuss the issue, with a narrow majority of councillors voting not to make a submission on the matter to the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor

Regulation, which will now rule on the RSL’s application. Council officers had completed a social and economic impact assessment that concluded “the anticipated impacts of the RSL’s application for 15 additional EGMs will be detrimental to the local and broader Kingston community”. However, a majority of councilors

decided to disregard the advice. Cr Ron Brownlees argued council should not make a submission to the VCGLR since problem gambling is a social issue. “I wonder how far we should extend our role as the social police, although I understand some of the negative impacts with some people affected more than others,” he said.

PENINSULA FIREPLACE CENTRE

The RSL relied heavily on revenue generated by gaming machines and this funding not only kept the club financially viable but also enabled it to support a range of community services, Cr Brownlees said. He noted that several RSL subbranches had recently been forced to close due to financial stress. Continued Page 8

Council crushes concrete plant plans By Neil Walker KINGSTON council has refused an application for a concrete crusher in the Green Wedge. The refusal was based on a thorough assessment of provisions in the Kingston Planning Scheme. The Delta Group application for a concrete crusher in Heatherton attract-

ed more than 500 objections from the community about the potential amenity impacts from dust, noise and traffic. This was the fifth application for a materials recycling facility in the green wedge in the past decade, none of which have been supported by Council. “This is a carefully considered deci-

sion which council believes will preserve the quality of life for residents while protecting our Green Wedge from inappropriate developments,” Kingston Mayor Paul Peulich said. Kingston’s Green Wedge Plan classes these types of businesses as inappropriate and the Heatherton site is also subject to a public acquisition overlay

for future public open space as detailed in the chain of parks project. The council decision came after Victorian Planning Minister Matthew Guy announced an 18-month interim materials recycling policy to protect the green wedge from inappropriate developments, including concrete crushers. Cr Peulich said the interim policy

followed months of advocacy by council and was a win for the communities of Dingley, Clayton South, Clarinda and Heatherton. “Council’s application refusal is a significant step forward and over the next 18 months council will work towards a permanent planning scheme amendment for the area,” he said.

Who dares wins when rebellion is name of game By Neil Walker FORMER Mentone Grammar student George Ivanoff will discuss his writing career at a Mentone Public Library event this month. The successful author of young adult and science-fiction tales will talk about his latest Gamers’ Rebellion novel, the writing process and his journey as a writer. Ivanoff has had a short stories collection and three novels published and is now working on a new series of books to be released by a major publisher next year. Gamers’ Rebellion is the third and final book in his Gamers trilogy about the adventures of Tark and Zyra, two computer game characters who decide to fight for freedom to escape the game and enter the real world. Ivanoff had to fight to enter the book world and, like many authors, faced years of rejections from publishers before finally achieving success. His debut book, called Life, Death and Detention, a collection of young adult short stories about high school life, was published in 1999. “It happened because I sent the right stories to them at the right time," Ivanoff said. "It was a pure fluke – they coincidentally wanted to do a collection of hard-hitting 'tell it like it is' stories about high school at the time." Life, Death and Detention was published by Margaret Hamilton Books, a division of Scholastic Australia. The 45-year-old Cheltenham resident is a stay-at-home dad who structures his writing around his two young children’s needs. It changed the way he approached writing.

“It has taught me be a more productive writer – prior to having children I was one of those writers who must have quiet and uninterrupted silence when writing”, he said. “But now, working deadlines around kids, I will write when I have time to write so they have kind of trained me to work under any circumstances.” Ivanoff supplements his income from novels and short stories with technical writing for school readers and reference books children use for their studies. His proudest writing achievement to date was writing a short story for an official Doctor Who anthology by UK publishers Big Finish. Ivanoff is a massive fan of the UK sci-fi TV show. He said he had an ambition to write an official story about The Doctor and “chased it”. “I went to a sci-fi convention and met a writer who had written several Doctor Who stories. I told him I was jealous and he said he would mention me to his editor.” He thought he had blown his big opportunity when the editor contacted him and Ivanoff went into “complete fan boy overdrive” pitching several story ideas. He received a “don't call us, we’ll call you” email in response. But he refused to quit pursuing his dream writing gig. About a year later, Big Finish held a short story competition to have a tale included in a Doctor Who book. George discovered he could not enter the contest since he was a professional writer but decided to submit a yarn anyway. He told Big Finish he knew it could not be included in the competition

but could be classed as “an unsolicited submission”. The editor then got back in touch with him and said they would commission him to write a short story for their Doctor Who: Short Trips book series. His short story called Machine Time, featuring the fourth Doctor Tom Baker, was published in 2008. “I so desperately wanted to write

for Doctor Who so it was fantastic,” he said. Ivanoff also regularly conducts writing workshops at schools and has found his Doctor Who short story has been a good way to establish a rapport with children thanks to the show's newfound popularity with a new generation of kids since its 2005 on-screen revival after a 16-year hiatus.

“They say I love Doctor Who too!”. George Ivanoff will talk about his writing career and Gamers' Rebellion novel at Mentone Public Library, 36 Florence St, Mentone at 11am on Saturday 14 December. Entry is by gold coin donation. Morning tea will be provided. For enquiries and bookings, call 9583 5648 or email: mentonepubliclibrary@gmail.com Author

Police sound alarm on jet ski hoons WATER police are ramping up patrols on Port Phillip Bay in a major crackdown on “hooning” jet skiers, while police on bicycle and foot patrols will target theft and anti-social behaviour on bayside beaches. Police have voiced growing concern at the dangerous behaviour displayed by many operators of high powered vessels such as jet skis – also known as personal water craft or PWCs – when around swimmers at otherwise peaceful bayside beaches. Uniform and plain clothes police will be patrolling up and down the bay, with operations focussing on Chelsea and Mordialloc, among other popular Melbourne beaches. Sergeant Mark Greenhill said jet skies were “extremely powerful machines” and that the potential for

something to go wrong, particularly in use around swimmers or other recreational boaters, was high. “If you are operating a PWC, remember it is an offence to speed in swimming zones or operate within 50 metres of another vessel,” he said. Sgt Greenhill added that carrying appropriate safety equipment when on the water was not only essential but could turn out to be a lifesaver. “Every year we see boat breakdowns or capsizing, and having safety equipment could mean the difference between life and death,” he said. “Last week, we launched an air and sea search after we received a mayday call from a sinking boat. “The sole occupant in the boat was very luckily located in the water by a passing fisherman, however without

flares or beacons it made him very difficult to spot. “There is simply no room for complacency with safety on the water; life jackets will keep you afloat if something goes wrong, and flares or beacons will make you easily visible to emergency services.” Sergeant Darren Joy said Operation Sandsafe would run from December through until late February. “We’re urging swimmers to use common sense when deciding what to take when heading to the beach," he said. “Intelligence tells us that there is a spike in thefts of items such as portable music devices and mobile phones during the summer period, usually as a result of these items being left unattended on the sand.” Chris Brennan

Walk bears fruit for school

To advertise in the Chelsea-Mordialloc News contact John Davidson on 0405 154 540 Chelsea – Mordialloc

PUPILS at St Louis de Montfort’s primary school in Aspendale took part in the national Walk to School day last Friday. The VicHealth initiative has promoted road safety, health and public transport since its inception in 2006. Younger children are encouraged to walk to and from school on the day with parents or older children while older children can walk on their own with parents’ permission. The Walk to School day helps children develop road-crossing skills and promotes the health benefits of

regularly walking from an early age. A fresh fruit breakfast was provided to children who walked to school on the day as part of the school’s Fresh Fruit Friday program. Woolworths in Mordialloc provide free fresh fruit for the school’s pupils to eat each week. School wellbeing leader Julie Wynne said the children enjoyed the fruit on offer every Friday. “Since Woolworths are so kind to provide so many different fruits, many children get their first taste of certain fruits at school,” Ms Wynne said.

Peaceful end to nightmare on Elm Grove By Neil Walker POLICE have thanked Parkdale residents for their patience and understanding during an 18-hour siege in Elm Grove last week. Officers arrived at an Elm Grove property at about 1.30pm on Tuesday 26 November after receiving information that a man was threatening selfharm. A police officer was injured when an object containing flammable liquid was thrown from the property, striking an officer on the leg. Kingston police commander Inspector Bruce Wemyss said the injured

senior constable was discharged from hospital that night and was expected to make a full recovery. Inspector Wemyss said the public reaction to street closures during the stand-off, which lasted into the early hours of the Wednesday morning, had been appreciated by police. He said police had taken a cautious approach to the situation. “We just didn't know what he had in the house,” he said. Several tactics were used throughout the night to try to persuade the man, who blockaded himself in the Elm Grove home, to surrender peacefully.

At one stage, a fire brigade water hose was used “to keep him engaged”, according to Inspector Weymss. A friend of the man eventually talked the man into giving himself up to po-

lice at about 7.20am on the Wednesday morning. A 53-year-old man was taken to hospital and subsequently was remanded in custody.

He has been charged with assault and other related offences. Three other people were arrested during the siege in the street for drunkenness and public order offences.

Councillors clear path for more gaming machines Continued from Page 1 Cr David Eden said Kingston’s gaming policy, currently being redrafted, stated council would work towards relocating EGMs from socially disadvantaged areas and the council officers’ report noted Chelsea fitted this demographic. “I know the RSL do great work and they help with our Remembrance services and other community gatherings

throughout the year but my concern is we are treating applicants differently depending on who they are,” Cr Eden said. Cr Eden said council was committed to reducing the net number of pokies machines within the city of Kingston. He noted the 15 machine licences from the closed Edithvale-Aspendale RSL had not been used for two years. “Some people can recreationally use machines appropriately but I don’t think

it is a good decision to stand back and say we won’t take a position when we have officers’ advice,” he said. Cr Rosemary West said not making a submission to the VCGLR was “clearly” against council policy. Crs Tamara Barth, Eden and West voted to make a submission to the VCGLR opposing the extra machines. Crs Tamsin Bearsley, Brownlees, Gledhill and mayor Paul Peulich decided a submis-

sion was not necessary. Crs John Ronke and Steve Staikos did not attend the meeting. VCGLR data showed $3.3 million was lost by pokies players at EdithvaleChelsea RSL in the twelve months to June this year, down from $3.8m in the previous financial year. The council officers' report stated Edithvale-Chelsea RSL donated $297,586 to the community last year. However 89

per cent of these contributions benefitted RSL members and not the wider community. ANZAC services, sports sponsorship and educational sponsorship were regarded as having community benefit. Kingston Council acting CEO Paul Franklin said the VCGLR would likely assume council did not oppose the installation of the additional machines if no submission is made by council.

Tenpin icon strikes out after 50 years By Neil Walker MENTONE Tenpin Bowl will shut up shop for good this month. A residential apartment block is to be built on the high-profile site at Mentone Junction. Strikes and spares will echo throughout the bowling alley on 20 December for the last time after 50 years entertaining adults and children in the community. Mentone Tenpin Bowl general manager Warren Stewart said it would be a sad day when he locked the doors for the last time. “We knew this day would eventually arrive, however you can never be fully prepared for it,” he said. Mr Stewart said three generations of bowlers had visited the Mentone Tenpin Bowl during the past half-century. “We regularly have people telling us they, their children and grandkids have all enjoyed bowling here,” he said. Mr Stewart has managed the bowling alley for five years and feels privileged to have been a part of its history. He said the owners of the site, Pace Development Group, had advised him that the alley would be closed “a few weeks ago” but had been good enough to allow bowling to continue at the venue when they could have closed it immediately when they bought the site

five years ago. “I hoped we might get another year or two,” Mr Stewart said. “But it wasn’t to be – you can't stop progress and development.” Mentone Tenpin Bowl was built by late businessman Alf Emerson and opened in 1963. Several tenpin bowling champions learned how to play the game at the highest level in the venue's early 1960s heyday. Mr Stewart said he had worked to relocate existing leagues who used the bowling alley to other venues. “We have enjoyed looking after the bowlers and I'm proud of the team here, who always tried to look after the bowlers,” he said. Mr Stewart hopes to continue his career within the tenpin bowling industry when he leaves his job next month. Mentone League bowlers are invited to join Mr Stewart and his team to farewell Mentone Tenpin Bowl on Wednesday 18 December at 6-9pm. Bowling will be free for league bowlers. A closing down garage sale will be held on Saturday 21 December at 8am1pm to sell off memorabilia and bowling alley items.

Highly rated or just high rates? KINGSTON Council is seeking ratepayers’ feedback on council’s approach to rates. The results of an online survey will be used to help council make decisions for next year’s Budget. Survey topics include how ratepayers would prefer to see funds allocated, views on rate rises and service delivery levels and opinions about the possible use of differential rates. Ratepayers and owners of property within Kingston can participate in the survey throughout December. “Council places great importance on listening to its community and I urge ratepayers to take up this opportunity to pass on their views and suggestions,” Mayor Paul Peulich said.

Lighting the way THE Jewish community and friends gathered in Mordialloc to celebrate Chanukah last week. Chanukah, also known as “the Festival of Lights”, is an eight-day Jewish holiday. A candle on the large Menorah is lit on each day of the Chanukah. Moorabbin Hebrew Congregation Rabbi Elisha Greenbaum said the Menorah is a symbol to light the way to spirituality. Jewish people also light smaller Menorahs at home during the festival. “The light will shine out from homes to provide light for others,” Rabbi Greenbaum said.

He said the lighting of the Menorah at Hazel Pierce Reserve in Mordialloc was becoming more popular each year and about 350 people attended this year’s opening ceremony. Community arts group Westside Circus provided entertainment for the crowd at the lighting ceremony with acrobatic displays.

Melbourne and surrounding areas switch on 10 December 2013*

Last week to switch! The final countdown to digital-only TV has begun 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? 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.

Chelsea – Mordialloc News 4 December 2013

Councillors call for cash splash on Chelsea loo By Neil Walker RELIEF could be on the way for commuters caught short at Chelsea train station after Kingston council decided to look at building a public toilet nearby. Councillor David Eden said the previous state government pledged to be flush with their cash and install a public toilet at the station but this never happened. He said several Chelsea residents had contacted him about a lack of toilet facilities at the station. “Apparently there is a little toilet within the building but it’s locked and not accessible by many people,” Cr Eden said. “I believe the protective services officers may be able to gain access to it.” Cr Tamsin Bearsley said police may not want the small toilet at the station to be open at all times because it would have to be monitored to prevent anti-social behaviour and vandalism. “I know VicTrack has been asked a number of times to reopen that station toilet,” Cr Bearsley said. However, she agreed a toilet near the station would be a convenience for commuters. Cr Rosemary West said a toilet in Chelsea “appeared to have been lost at some point”. Cr West believed a public toilet was demolished in Chelsea when the Safeway supermarket was built. Council city strategic planner Jonathan Guttman confirmed there was an agreement made with the supermarket at the time to make its toilet accessible to the general public as part of the development process. Cr Eden said the toilet at Safeway, owned by Woolworths, was difficult to access for disabled people. Councillors backed his suggestion to write to VicTrack to ask whether they would join council to pay for a new toilet at Chelsea shopping centre, near the train station. Cr Eden joked anyone spending more than a penny for the new toilet could be granted naming rights.

AROUND THE REGION

Independent state proposed for peninsula By Chris Brennan FRANKSTON and the Mornington Peninsula should secede from Victoria and form a new independent state with its own government, laws and flag, a Melbourne academic has suggested. Swinburne University lecturer Matthew Mitchell said the wishes and democratic rights of the people of the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston City were being ignored, especially when it came to planning and development issues, and that this could be resolved by the two municipalities uniting to become a separate state. “At every community consultation, the one issue that nearly everyone agrees on is that the area is being overdeveloped and that people do not want that,” he said. “So why is that, despite this being raised, development rolls on with proposals for even more high density living? Why is it that in this ‘democractic’ country, what the people want is ignored?” The answer, he said, was that local governments were not recognised under the Australian Constitution and thus held little real power, while state bodies beholden to powerful business interests were able to overturn locally enacted laws and planning schemes. Under the Australian Constitution, only two levels of government are recognised – state governments and the federal government – with no mention of local government or local councils, he said. “So local residents can spend a lot of time working with councils to create local planning laws to protect their communities and their local environment, but the laws can be overturned, either by VCAT or the planning minister.” “People spend a lot of time going to council forums, writing objections, writing letters to newspapers, all with little effect. “The answer is that there is something wrong with our democracy.” The only way to reclaim the legal authority for residents to determine their own future was

State of play: Matthew Mitchell is proposing Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula become an independent state to ensure residents’ wishes are upheld. Picture: Gary Sissons

through the formation of a legally constituted state within the Australian federal system. Dr Mitchell, who lives in Seaford and is a proponent of sustainable development, said that while the idea of forming an independent state on the Mornington Peninsula, with Frankston as its capital, might sound unfeasible, there was actually nothing stopping residents calling for a referendum to vote for their own independent government. This was in fact the exact process by which the state of Victoria had been created. “The State of Victoria was created in response

to the demands of Melbourne residents in 1850 to be governed by local people who understood their problems,” he said. “This provides a precedent for the creation of the State of Mornington Peninsula. “People on the peninsula would seek the right to govern themselves as they see fit, by locals. “A new state will allow peninsula people to take control of their own future, and will provide immediate economic and environmental benefits.” Dr Mitchell said the creation of the State of Mornington Peninsula would lead to “immediate significant economic benefits” through creation

of more jobs and opportunities in the area. Revenue and employment opportunities that currently went to Melbourne would be relocated to Frankston and the peninsula, with an independent state requiring its own education, transport and planning departments, as well as courts and police. “The flow-on effects of this would significantly boost local business and open up very attractive opportunities to the people of Mornington Peninsula State,” Dr Mitchell said. “These systems would be far more responsive to the needs of the people on the peninsula than current state services. “In fact, if this process was to be conducted across Victoria, this would achieve the decentralisation and revitalisation of rural communities that has been discussed and previously attempted by the state government over recent decades. “The conversion of the entire state of Victoria into a set of smaller regional states could also be done via a state referendum.” This could result in about 18 to 20 regional governments that could then create a “coalition of Victorian governments” that would supervise and manage the reorganisation of former state of Victoria assets, services and responsibilities. But it was in the areas of environmental management and development planning that the “micro-state” proposal was most critical. The creation of one or more regionalised state governments within Victoria would give communities direct control over the environment and natural resources. “For example, communities would have complete control over the use of genetically modified crops and coal seam gas fracking,” he said. “We can see the problems, we can see where they come from. What we need to know now is how to get back control of our lives and our suburbs.” For more details of the Mornington Peninsula State proposal, visit www.8thstate.net

Honour run for founder

MORE than 1000 riders are expected to take part in Saturday’s Peninsula Toy Run from Frankston to Rosebud following the death of its founder and organiser John Smollen last Saturday. Mr Smollen of Pearcedale, a member of the Ulysses Club’s Mornington Wanderers branch, devoted many hours each year finding sponsors and organising the run, which last year collected goods for 1500 hampers of food and toys for underprivileged

families, which are distributed by Southern Peninsula Food For All. Mr Smollen was found in his driveway on Saturday morning by his wife Maureen. Later in the day she told The News the 13th annual toy run would go ahead. The event draws many spectators, who enjoy seeing riders dressed in Christmas costumes on decorated bikes. Phil Matthews of Mornington Wanderers said about 700 riders took part last year but

more were expected this year “to honour the work of John”. The toy run leaves Frankston pier car park at 9.30am on Saturday for Rosebud with riders assembling from 8am. Riders head down the Nepean Highway to Rosebud via Mornington and Dromana. For details or to donate unwrapped toys and canned or packaged food, call Phil Matthews, 9766 0758.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Fire excites at Frankston station; cyclist narrowly avoids death Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 6 December 1913 Considerable excitement was caused in Frankston on Friday afternoon, when the firebell was heard to ring. The fire was located at the railway station, and the brigades were quickly on the scene, but when they arrived the railway officials had the fire well under control. The outburst was caused by the painters, who are burning off the paint preparatory to re-painting, and the fire apparently went through from the outside to the old wood inside. Luckily little damage was done. *** An accident occurred at the level crossing near Tanti on Wednesday last, happily without serious result to the participant. As the train from Mornington was going across the crossing a motor cyclist, who apparently had not noticed the train dashed into it. The cycle was very badly damaged, but when the train pulled up it was found that the rider had escaped without a scratch. *** The Frankston Brass Band gave another enjoyable concert last Saturday evening in Station Street. A collection was taken up for the uniform fund, and realised one guinea, of this Mr G. W. Wells generously donated 10s 6d. The Band will play in Bay Street tonight (Saturday), weather permitting. *** At the Mornington Y.M.C.A., on Friday, 28th November, the syllabus item was a ladies’ night, and passed off most enjoyably. In consequence

of the great number of invitations accepted it was found necessary to hold the function in St. Peter’s school room, which was kindly offered by the Rev. Mr Sandiford. About 60 ladies and gentlemen were present and were well pleased with the musical programme, the parlour games and the refreshments, which were supplied by Mr Bieri. *** On Tuesday, November 25th, Major, Mrs and the Misses Campbell entertained the boys of the Melbourne Seaside Home at “Amesfield Park”, Mornington. The boys were driven from the State school through Frankston in cabs, which were provided by the hosts, to their residence. They were treated to an abundance of good things such as cakes, lollies, fruit and motor rides. Games of all kinds were much appreciated. On leaving the boys gave three cheers for Major and Mrs Campbell. *** As reported in our last issue, Dr Plowman was at the last meeting of the show committee elected treasurer in place of Mr F. G. Chamberlin, who resigned. The chairman, Captain Sherlock, expressed his great regret at Mr Chamberlin’s resignation, and asked members if they thought he would reconsider his decision. It was not thought likely, however, and the resignation was perforce accepted with regret. Mr Chamberlin has held the position for about 12 years, and always carried out his duties in a most satisfactory and faithful manner. *** There was only a moderate attendance at the euchre party and dance

held in the Frankston Mechanics’ hall on Wednesday evening last, in aid of the band uniform fund. A pleasant time was spent, however, and all appeared to thoroughly enjoy themselves. The first prizes in the euchre tournament were annexed by Mr B. Roberts (7 games), and Miss L. Gould

Messrs Brody and Mason will conduct their usual monthly sale at Somerville on Wednesday next, when they will offer horses, cattle, sheep, pigs and sundries.

(7 games), while Mr and Mrs Verney accounted for the “booby” prizes. After supper had been handed round dancing was commenced. The band, under their energetic bandmaster, Mr E. C. Hammond, rendered several selections in first-class style outside the hall, and under Secretary Guumes,

they played for several dances. The secretary of the ladies committee (Mrs A. C. Millard) and Mr F. Hanton also assisted with the music for the dancing. *** A social evening in connection with the Frankston Branch of the A.W.N.L., was held in the local Mechanics’ Hall on Saturday evening last. There was a good attendance, Dr Maxwell occupying the chair. A splendid programme by visiting and local artists was gone through, and judging by the applause, each item greatly pleased those present. Mrs Bolitho, the assistant secretary of the League, gave a short address, which was listened to attentively, and at its conclusion the speaker received well merited applause. After the programme had been gone through, supper, provided by the ladies, was handed round, and was thoroughly enjoyed. Dancing was then indulged in for a couple of hours. The next social under the auspices a of the A.W.N.L. is being eagerly looked forward to. *** Messrs Brody and Mason will conduct their usual monthly sale at Somerville on Wednesday next, when they will offer horses, cattle, sheep, pigs and sundries. *** Miss Emily Meredith, surgeondentist, of Chapel Street, Prahran, intimates by advertisement that she will receive patients at Mr J. Nott Marsh’s office, Frankston, every Saturday, between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 9 p.m. ***

The recently built Municipal tea rooms, which are to be taken charge of by Mrs Jacobs and Misses Laurissen and Myers, are to be opened by the President of the Shire (Cr J. D. Hodgins) this (Saturday) afternoon, at 4 o’clock. The public are cordially invited to the opening ceremony. *** A man named Neil O’Conner, who was arrested by Constable Montgomery on Sunday last, for being drunk, was fined 5s. On Tuesday the same constable arrested a man, named Thos Bamford, and he was fined 5s for being drunk and 10s for using insulting words. *** Mr T. S. Marshall, Chief Officer of the Country Fire Brigades’ Board, has forwarded the following satisfactory report to the Frankston brigade, after having inspected that place a week or two ago:- There was a fairly good muster for inspection, 11 members out of 16 being present. As this brigade has to depend entirely on its manual engine for fire extinction purposes, I paid special attention to practices suitable for that appliance, and as the night was a fine one we did, all the work outside. My new engine practices for five and three men were explained, and they were carried out intelligently and smartly. The disabled hose practice, which is a good as one for one man, especially for young men to carry out, was entered in too with great keenness. This brigade is under good management. The captain and his officers are capable and experiences firemen, and the rank and file and fire are all workers.

The item at the top of my bucket list By Stuart McCullough TRAVEL – when done properly – is much like warfare. The element of the surprise should always be paramount. Whether you’re hooking the caravan to the back of the car and heading to Merimbula or invading France, no one should ever know you’re coming. That’s why you must always begin in the dead of night. The similarities between holidays and ground-based military incursions don’t end there. As kids, not only did holidays begin with us being ripped from our slumber in the dead of night, we were also forced to wear fatigues and camouflage paint. Little wonder people thought we were weird. Nothing pleased my father more than an early start. It was as though tearing his family out of bed before the sun had begun to think about rising was an achievement on par with memorising the Encyclopedia Britannica or building a replica of the city of Venice entirely out of used Paddle Pop sticks while blindfolded. Ideally, he’d want us to reach Albury by breakfast. Aside from paramilitary clothing, we were each allowed a bag, our pillow and some kind of personal item to make the long journey ahead seem just that little bit shorter. But there was one item that always travelled with us, whenever we left Tyabb and ventured into the far wider world. As we were buckled into our seats at four o’clock in the morning, our parents would do a quick check. Should we set off without somebody’s tooth-

brush, we could always buy another one. If someone forgot their pillow, that was just bad luck. We could even leave one of my siblings back in the house and – depending on how far we’d already travelled – it was a fiftyfifty proposition as to whether we’d return. But we never went anywhere without an empty ice cream container. Once it would have held litres of

delicious ice cream. Chances are, it would have been Neapolitan – the most democratic and even-handed of all the ice-cream flavours. But once rinsed, the now-empty ice-cream container would be relocated to the van and re-christened, ‘the Chuck Bucket’ or, ‘the Bucket’ for short. Oddly enough, ‘the Bucket’ was also the original name given to the Nissan

E-20, before the powers that be decided it would be easier to market an affordable people-mover if it sounded like a strain of e-coli rather than something you might water the plants with. The Chuck Bucket, however, served a very different purpose and was always on hand in the event that something should go wrong. That’s because ‘the Bucket’ served one purpose and one purpose only – it existed solely in the event that one us should feel like throwing up. There is something about long-distance travel that never fails to induce nausea. Sometimes travel sickness is caused by foolishly attempting to read when the road is winding or the surface uneven. On other occasions, we would feel sick because we were forced to consume tablets that were intended to prevent motion sickness but, in an irony that must surely have become apparent during the testing stage, invariably made you want to throw up. Whatever the cause, the Chuck Bucket was always on hand. The responsibility for demanding the Bucket rested with each individual. In the event that you felt something begin to stir in the pit of your stomach, you were expected to request ‘the Bucket’. Any such request would set off a flurry of activity in which various brothers and sisters would scramble to find the empty ice cream container and move it in to position before the technicolour yawn had a chance to begin. However, a request for the bucket should not be confused with a request

to stop the vehicle. Indeed, my father would always plough on, firmly believing that the only circumstance that would necessitate pulling the car over would be to empty the bucket. Until then, it was full steam ahead. My sister, Rebecca, holds the alltime record in our family. We were heading up to Queensland or driving some other great distance that, by rights, ought to be well beyond a Nissan E-20 and had been woken up thirty-seven minutes after being sent to bed. Our father was muttering something about ‘beating the traffic’ and we were quickly dressed in our fatigues, forced to eat travel sickness tablets and apply camouflage makeup. Safely buckled up, we began the marathon journey. However, we were yet to reach the end of the drive before my sister requested ‘the Bucket’ and proceeded to send the travel sickness tablets back from whence they came. Suffice to say, my father had to pull over the car. When I eventually bought a car of my own, I made sure there was oil in engine, a spare tyre in the boot and an empty ice-cream container in the backseat. At that time, I had no need for four litres of Neapolitan ice cream. I simply needed a Chuck Bucket of my very own. It seemed quite an adult thing to do. These days, I no longer carry an empty bucket in case of emergency. I doubt my father does either. His ice cream containers now only hold ice cream. As well they should. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Bow to the King of Sorrento PROVINCIAL By IT Gully SORRENTO’S AJ King almost single-handedly bowled Sorrento to victory against MT ELIZA in Provincial cricket on Saturday. The opening paceman bowled 31 overs for the Sorras and finished with 15 maidens and sensational figures of 6/43. The Mounties were chasing just 175 for victory after their bowlers did a great job last week against one of the league’s best. However, despite batting 92.1 overs on Saturday, the Mounties could only muster 160. King was well supported by Nick Davern, who bowled 22 overs for a return of 2/41, while Ryan O’Connor snared 1/33 from 22.1 overs. The Mounties got away to a superb

start, the opening pair of Ben Tracy (27) and Tom Ewing (55no) getting 64 on the board before King struck. What followed were four quick wickets and the Mounties were on the back foot at 5/107. Tom Baron offered some resistance at the end but lacked support. Sorrento maintains its position on top of the table, eight points clear of Mornington and now 20 points clear of Langwarrin in third place. BAXTER was back to its best with the ball once again on Saturday against old foe PENINSULA OLD BOYS, knocking the home side over for just 162. Chasing 234 for victory, the Old Boys were never in the hunt, thanks largely to the efforts of Baxter opening bowlers Dale Irving and Adrian Mack. Irving claimed 3/50 from 12 overs

while Mack was back from his hamstring strain and bowled 20 overs and finished with figures of 3/33. Ben Smith also snared 3/33 from 14 overs, giving him 10 scalps for the season. Jon Forrest was the only Old Boys batsman who looked comfortable, top scoring with 44, while Cameron Macauley again proved he was a handy lower order bat, scoring 26. MOOROODUC was never in the hunt against LONG ISLAND in their match. Set a whopping 410 for victory, the Ducs were rolled for just 131, the Islanders’ Andrew Tweddle was at his best with 6/32. The Williams boys, Nick and Ben, top scored for the Ducs with 33 and 32 respectively. CRIB POINT sits in fourth place on the ladder after smashing MT

MARTHA in an outright victory. The Magpies were only three runs from victory at the close of play on Day 1 after dismissing the home side for just 118. The Pies raced to 9/157 off 45 overs before sending the Reds back into bat. Mt Martha scored just 95 in 46.2 overs in its second dig, Brad Davidson picking up four wickets for the Pies, Glenn Barclay three wickets and Luke Herrington a couple. Left with just 50-odd runs to score to claim the outright win, the Pies scored 5/60 in 16.4 overs. RYE was unable to take advantage of the wonderful work from its bowlers in week one of their match against HEATHERHILL. The Demons dismissed the Hills for 125 on day one but were reeling at 3/45 overnight. Things didn’t get much better on

day two, the Demons rolled for just 116. At one stage, the Demons were 7/116, needing just 10 runs with three wickets and had plenty of overs in hand. However, Meagher claimed 3/0 to wrap things up. Of his eight wickets, three were lbw and two were bowled. Matty Meagher was simply superb for the Hills, the skipper claiming 8/56 from 23 overs, giving him 21 wickets for the season, along with 127 runs, batting in the middle order. MORNINGTON finished off LANGWARRIN by chasing down the 150 needed for victory. The Doggies didn’t have things all their own way during the day but did finish comfortable winners, scoring 9/231.

Close attention: Hastings battled back against Carrum to win their one-day District match.

Braves still alive after Flinders win DISTRICT By IT Gully BADEN POWELL picked up a much-needed win against FLINDERS to keep its District season well and truly alive. In a very closely contested season after five rounds, the win sees the Braves in the middle order on the ladder, just a game outside of the top four. Things didn’t look great for the Braves at the beginning of the day, resuming at 3/38, chasing just 123 for victory. However, a number of batsmen got starts for Baden Powell and it was enough to get them to 179. Josh Waldron top scored with 36, Blake Hillman scored 24 batting at nine and Sam Mullavey dug deep in the middle order to score 23.

PAGE 22

Flinders used eight different bowlers to try and force a result their way. Matt Burns was the best of them with 4/42 from 19.2 overs. MAIN RIDGE pulled-off a sensational victory against SOMERVIILE to sneak into the top four. The Ridge were in all sorts of trouble overnight against the Eagles, resuming at 3/22. Chasing 190 for victory, things looked grim for the home side. However, a 128-run partnership between skipper Brendan Rossborough (64) and league legend Gareth Wyatt (76) turned the match on its head. A couple of quick wickets swung the game back in Somerville’s favour momentarily with the score at 6/167. But then the home side steadied. Michael Holmes (37) was a handy bat to have coming in at seven and together

Chelsea – Mordialloc News 4 December 2013

with James Abbott (14), they steered the Ridge to victory. Jack Kennedy and Russell Wilkes each claimed three wickets for the Eagles. HASTINGS came from nowhere to pick up the 12 points against CARRUM in their one-day clash. The Blues batted first and scrambled to 96 after at one stage being 5/15. Luke Hewitt came to the rescue with 45 for the Blues in the middle order to at least give the bowlers a target to bowl to. The Lions then lost their final five wickets for 20 runs to fall four runs short of victory. Isuru Dias claimed 4/16 for the Blues while Mitch Floyd and Hewitt picked up two wickets each. Josh Dent top scored for the Lions with 28. PINES sits comfortably in the top

bracket after an effortless victory against SEAFORD. After scoring 266 in week one of the match (Ricky Ramsdale 80), the Piners then went about rattling the Tigers’ cages, dismissing them for just 92. After doing the job with the bat, Ramsdale was at his best with the ball also, snaring 3/17 from 13 overs, while Nick Wilcox and Pat Jackson each took a couple of wickets. In their second dig, Pines finished at 4/131, Jeremy Weare top scoring with an unbeaten 39. DELACOMBE PARK sits at the top of the District table after picking up an easy outright win against BALLAM PARK. The Parkers dismissed the Knights for 97 last week and were 1/44 overnight. The visitors quickly got to 6/195

with Chris Brittain scoring 56, Andrew Christides 32 and Shane Deal an unbeaten 31. The Knights were back at the crease for just 34 overs before they were rolled again for 81. Brittain snared 4/33, Brett Chard 2/8 in his return game for his junior club and Virun Singh and Shane Deal two wickets each. Chris Brittain has 19 wickets and 177 runs for the season. SEAFORD TIGERS had little trouble getting the 12 points against BONEO. Defending 8/294, the Tigers bowled out Boneo for just 129. Corey Hand was again superb with 4/25 from 16 overs while David James helped himself to 3/18. Ryan Jellie top scored for Boneo with 37.


CHELSEA – MORDIALLOC NEWS scoreboard

No falling for Skye SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully SKYE is in third place on the Sub District table after easily accounting for FRANKSTON YCW on Saturday. Defending 208 for victory, Skye was always in control of the match and eventually bowled out the home side for 162. Teenager Jack Greenwood was a shining light for the Stonecats with an unbeaten 70. Unfortunately for the 18-year-old opener, he ran out of partners along the way. Luke Hutchison tried to offer some support and resistance, scoring 31. Rob Bedford was bowled by Paul Fillipone for eight and Jason Bedford was Fillipone’s second victim. Ben Milano was the best of the Skye bowlers with 3/26, Pat Clinch finished with 3/46 and Leigh Smith and Fillipone snared two each. Despite the loss, the Stonecats are still just a game outside the top four. PEARCEDALE kept its season alive by beating ROSEBUD. The Panthers scored 9/203 in week one of their match and their bowlers backed up that good work on Saturday. The Buds were bowled out for 173, Kaine Smith claiming 4/36 for the Panthers and Shayne Gillings taking 4/54.

RED HILL maintains its position at the top of the ladder after a strong victory against TYABB. In a highly entertaining one day match, the Hillmen batted first and scored 6/164 from its 40 overs. Simon Dart was the chief run scorer with an unbeaten 69, while Glenn Collett scored 33. Luke Rus was the best of the Yabbies’ bowlers with 3/20 from seven overs. The Yabbies started slowly in the chase, losing 4/31, before Steven Hall (42) and Sam Taranto provided them with some hope. Brent Martin stepped up to the plate for the Hillmen though with the ball, claiming 4/38. Eventually, the Yabbies were bowled out 10 runs short for 154. CARRUM DOWNS and DROMANA also played a cliffhanger one-day match. The Hoppers batted first and would have been reasonably happy with the 4/159 from 40 overs. However, the Cougars were up for the batting challenge and got the winning runs in the final over. Josh Harkness top scored for Carrum Downs with 55 and Stuart Putson provided great support with 33. In the final match, TOOTGAROOK got the 89 runs needed to beat BALNARRING.

Dunes golfers shoot it out for top medal titles THE Dunes Medal, featuring Australia’s best amateur golfers, was held over four days last week at The Dunes Golf Links. In a thrilling final round, played in testing conditions, Anthony Houston (5 under) from Kingswood Golf Club finished one shot clear of Commonwealth’s Zach Murray and Queenslander Taylor MacDonald (4 under). Houston battled back from making double-bogey on the 14th by chipping in for eagle on 16. Australian representative MacDonald then made a double-bogey himself on the 17th to hand the outright lead to Houston which he never relinquished. Houston followed in the footsteps of past champions including Jason Day, Kieran Pratt and Bryden Macpherson. In the ladies event world number 2 Minjee Lee from Western Australia produced a stunning performance to win by 9 strokes from Victorian Bianca Ling and another Western Australian, Hira Naveed. Winning duo: Kingwood Golf Club’s Anthony Houston and Western Australia’s Minjee Lee won the mens and ladies trophies at The Dunes Medal event.
