Kinder builds on constructive play BUILDING renovations at Patterson Lakes Kindergarten are set to transform the kinder as staff and children prepare for a fresh start. The new surrounds will not be the only change on the way. The kinder is holding a competition to redesign the centre’s logo ahead of the completion of a $700,000 new building currently being constructed. Kinder president Courtney Smyth said the early childhood learning centre’s committee came up with the idea of inviting the Patterson Lakes community to get involved in the project and show off their artistic flair. It’s all part of a push to draw attention to the kinder’s revamp ahead of the opening of its new building early next year. “The refurbishment will enable us to increase the number of places available and we’ll also be offering space here to other commnity groups, including playgroups, who are interested in renting or hiring space,� Ms Smyth said. Enrolments for the kinder’s 2014 program are open now. New logo entries must be received by 5pm on Wednesday 18 September. The design should visually represent the Patterson Lakes community, kindergarten and children. The logo must include the kinder’s name or the abbreviation ‘PLK’. A graphic designer will work with the winning entrant to create the final logo to be displayed on the new building. Visit www.pattersonlakeskinder.com for full competition details and entry form.

Crime rise hits home By Chris Brennan KINGSTON’S crime rate jumped 8.6 per cent over the past 12 months – more than five times the rate of increase for Victoria as a whole – with drug offences, crimes against property and family violence leading the way, Victoria Police statistics reveal. The latest police statistics for the year to 30 June show the total number of drug

offences in the Kingston area surged an alarming 35.8 per cent compared to the previous year, from 366 to 497 incidents. Police singled out the rising use of methamphetamine, better known as ice, as being of particular concern. Crimes against property, a category that includes burglary, vandalism and theft, rose 10.9 per cent, from 5755 reported offences to 6381, while crimes

against the person, which includes rape, murder and assault, rose 2.9 per cent from 1180 cases to 1214. The number of assaults in Kingston was up 4.7 per cent, with 905 reported incidents. Of those, 381 offences – or more than 40 per cent of the total – were attributed to family violence, which remains an area of intense focus for police. Despite the rise in the number of

crimes detected in Kingston, the city’s overall crime rate remains lower than the state average, particularly in the cases of residential burglaries, car theft and assault. Newly appointed City of Kingston police commander Inspector Bruce Weymss said that while the area remained a safe place to live, work and visit, family violence, drug abuse and the burglary of

local businesses had emerged as critical issues requiring increased police attention. The rate of increase in crimes recorded in Kingston over the year from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2013 was higher than the state average, but the city’s overall crime rate remains slightly lower than the Victorian average.

Councillors walk out as ‘ambush’ crushes debate By Neil Walker AN application to build a concrete crusher facility on green wedge land brought a Kingston council meeting to a grinding halt on Monday 26 August. Councillors stormed out of the meeting complaining they had been “ambushed” after an unscheduled motion regarding the use of green wedge land was introduced. Councillors were discussing an application from Port Melbourne-based Delta Group to build a concrete crusher operation on green wedge land at Heatherton when councillors Steve Staikos and John Ronke tried to introduce amendments to the motion. Mayor Ron Brownlees, who chaired the meeting, ruled Cr Ronke (South Ward), could speak first on the matter, sparking angry scenes as other councillors accused the chair of not following proper process. Cr Ronke tried to bring forward a confidential notice of motion, seconded by Cr Tamsin Bearsley, that had been due to be heard behind closed doors at the end of the meeting. Cr Ronke’s motion called on state planning minister Matthew Guy to consider expanding the urban growth boundary to allow development on other green wedge land in the area. Several councillors blasted the manoeuvre as inappropriate and an abuse of process since they had not been advised of Cr Ronke’s proposal before the meeting. North Ward Cr Staikos had intended to ask the state government to extend a ban on materials recycling operations in the green wedge zone, including concrete crushers. He had flagged the amendment with councillors the week before the meeting. Cr Paul Peulich was first to leave the council chambers after questioning Mayor Brownlees’ decision to allow Cr Ronke to speak first on the issue. Crs Staikos, David Eden, Rosemary West and Tamara Barth quickly followed. The meeting was unable to continue, with just four councillors present, and was brought to an early close, forcing the abandonment of the many other agenda items due to be tackled on the night. A previous application by Delta Group to build a concrete crusher in Heatherton was rejected by then state planning minister Rob Hulls in 2005 as

being “prohibited in the green wedge area”. An independent panel report at the time identified several concerns, including “the failure to resolve a water management plan and concerns over nuisance dust”. Cr Staikos condemned Mayor Brownlees’ handling of proceedings. “The mayor used the chair to support positions he personally favoured,” he said. “The position is not supposed to be used for the purpose of pushing through any motion through sleight of hand, trickery and misuse of the chair’s role.” Cr Eden said councillors lost confidence in the way the mayor was running Monday’s meeting. “There seemed to be some sort of collusion between Crs Ronke and Brownlees over the notice of motion that came out of nowhere,” he said. “Green wedge land owners in the public gallery seemed to be aware of the amendment Cr Ronke tried to introduce - it felt like an ambush.” Cr Ronke told The News he was keen to bring the landowners’ concerns about restrictions on the use of their properties into the public forum. “I didn’t have a chance to catch up with councilors beforehand,” he said. He criticised the walk-out by councillors as “a tactic to stifle debate”. Mayor Brownlees said he had never witnessed such a mass exit by councillors in his 17 years as a Kingston councilor.“I was a bit disappointed they decided to leave and didn’t want to get an outcome,” he said. “The team has to get back together, show due deference to the community, and work through all the unfinished council business that was to be addressed at the meeting.” Cr Eden, who also clashed with Mayor Brownlees over errors in the city of Kingston’s 2013-14 budget at last month’s council meeting (‘Budget blunders blasted’, The News, 7 August 2013), said he believed the latest stoush meant “many councillors have lost faith in the mayor”. “In my opinion, it casts a cloud over his mayoralty,” he said. Councillors met again on Monday 2 September to finish the aborted meeting. The application to build the concrete crushing facility is on hold while council officers seek further information from the applicant.

Good morning, Carrum: Carrum Primary School pupils Bethany and Hugo take to the global airwaves while Trinity (back) minds the mixing desk. Picture: Gary Sissons

Radio Carrum’s a real class act LISTEN out, world. Carrum Primary School pupils are broadcasting on a global frequency from “deep in the heart of the Karrum Karrum Swampland”. Grade 5 and 6 classes at the school have taken to the airwaves to launch their own internet radio station called Radio Carrum. Teacher Marcus Mulcahy, a former music show host on Melbourne community radio station 3CR, helped the pupils set up their own radio station in May last year. But the class project has since taken on a broadcasting life of its own.

Community groups and sports clubs are invited to appear as guests to be interviewed by pupils on Radio Carrum’s many arts, entertainment and sporting shows. “The kids run their own shows, including sound engineering, and write their own scripts,” Mr Mulcahy said. The radio station broadcasts live on the internet and individual shows are available to download and play back as podcasts on Apple iPhone/iPod and Android devices. Chelsea Heights Football Club and Carrum Patterson Lakes Netball Club are just two of the local sporting clubs

that make regular appearances on Radio Carrum. The radio station broadcasts from the school’s classrooms using a portable laptop, mixing desk, microphones and headphones. Carrum Cricket Club helped pay for some of the equipment. “It’s cheap but effective with the limited money we have,” Mr Mulcahy said. The pupils are keen to hear from community groups and sporting clubs who would like to get involved. Visit www.radiocarrum.org for further information.

Dumped referendum a costly wait for some By Neil Walker KINGSTON Council has avoided a wait facing other Victorian councils anxious to find out whether money given to promote a cancelled referendum will be returned. A planned referendum on recognising local government in the Constitution was dropped when Prime Minister Kevin Rudd opted for a 7 September election date. Electoral and constitution laws stated the earliest date the referendum could have been held in conjuction with the federal election was 14 September. The federal government had argued local councils needed to be recognised in the Constitution to ensure direct funding could continue from the Com-

monwealth for local government projects. The Municipal Association of Victoria asked councils in the state to make a voluntary contribution to a national campaign organised by the Australian Local Government Association to promote a “yes” vote. Fifty-one councils nationally contributed a total of $959,000 to the “yes” campaign. Kingston Council confirmed the MAV asked the City of Kingston to contribute about $50,000, based on population and revenue, to the “yes” campaign. “City of Kingston did not contribute any funds to the MAV campaign,” council acting CEO Paul Franklin said. Mr Franklin said council had not yet

formally discussed the cancellation of the referendum. Neighbouring municipality Frankston City Council backed the “yes” campaign but also declined to make a financial contribution. Mornington Peninsula Shire was asked for $53,000 and made a $20,000 voluntary contribution. The AGLA is lobbying for the incoming federal government to fully reimburse councils for the costs of the referendum campaign. AGLA president Felicity anne-Lewis said about $3 million had already been spent nationally by the local government sector on a “grassroots public relations” campaign before the referendum was scrapped.

Crossing crash

A collision between a train and truck in Bonbeach caused rail travel delays on the Frankston line last Friday morning. The accident happened just before 6.30am, when the truck’s tray overhanging onto the railway line hit the city-bound train as it approached Bonbeach railway station. Building materials transported on the truck spilled on to the road. The truck driver suffered minor injuries. No train passengers were hurt. Pictures: Gary Sissons

Crime statistics hit home Continued from Page 1 Inspector Weymss said family violence-related assaults remained a priority for police and statistical increases for these offences may suggest that more victims had the confidence to report crimes committed in the home. “Family violence related assaults remain a priority for police and statistical increases for these offences may suggest that more victims have the confidence to report. “The Divisional Family Violence Unit will continue to target recidivist offenders and support victims.” Burglaries of commercial and retail premises were up 10.2 per cent to 379 offences. Inspector Weymss said investigations teams were working on strategies to stop this recent trend. “Burglaries of commercial and retail premises are up 10.2 per cent and our investigations teams are working on strategies to reverse this recent escalation,” he said. “This response will comprise a holistic approach to this crime, and will include live tasking and proactive crime prevention education. “Assaults continue to be an issue in and around transport hubs; however this may be impacted by the further roll out of Protective Services Officers (PSOs) at Cheltenham and Mentone railway stations.” PSOs have already gone on duty at Carrum and Mordialloc

and have had an immediate impact on the number of instances of vandalism and drunken behaviour in those areas. On a positive note, he said it was pleasing that there had been “solid reductions” in areas such as: robbery (down 36.8 per cent); property damage (6.8 per cent lower); residential burglary (-8.7 per cent), theft of vehicles (- 6.4 per cent); and theft from vehicles (-9.3 per cent). “Even with these positive results, we can never be too vigilant,” Inspector Weymss said. “I remind all motorists to remain focussed on what they can do to reduce incidents of thefts from vehicles. “Please always remember to lock doors and remove valuables, as many of these thefts are opportunistic. By removing temptation we are likely to continue to reduce offending. Across Victoria, the total crime rate was up a moderate 1.6 per cent compared to the same period last year, but Chief Commissioner Ken Lay said the 21.6 per cent rise in the number of family violence offences was a growing concern. “We know that family violence related crime is significantly impacting on our crime statistics,” Mr Lay said. “Over the past 10 years, family violence related crime against the person has increased by nearly 400 per cent. This is mainly due to increase in assaults.

“We don’t think we’ve seen the extent that this horrible crime is having on our community. “While we know changes to the way police respond to and record family violence incidents, as well as greater community confidence to report these matters, is pushing up these figures, it’s alarming that such a high volume of crime is being committed in the home and that people are at risk in their own homes.” He also highlighted an increase of almost 12 per cent (per 100,000 people) in drug offences across Victoria, which was being driven by increased ice and amphetamine use, and said he would be “very surprised” if this was not contributing to the rising tide of family violence. “Drug offences have been enormously problematic for us in the past 12 months,” Mr Lay said. “We know there is a significant increase in the use of ice in the community.” Police also warned that young people continued to be overrepresented in crime statistics, particularly when alcohol was involved, and urged parents to speak regularly with their children about potential dangers. Another rising trend was the theft of number plates, which are often useed to commit further offences such as petrol theft, drug trafficking and burglaries.

It’s time to count on us THE Division of Isaacs was named after Sir Isaac Isaacs (1855–1948), member of the House of Representatives 1901–06, chief justice of the High Court 1930 and governor-general of Australia 1931–36. It covers an area of approximately 166 square kilometres, taking in suburbs from Mentone to Carrum and Skye and up to Noble Park. Its major suburbs include Aspendale, Bonbeach, Braeside, Carrum, Chelsea, Dandenong South, Edithvale, Keysborough, Lyndhurst (part), Mentone (part), Mordialloc, Noble Park (part), Parkdale, Patterson Lakes, Skye (part) and Waterways. The seat is held by Labor’s Mark Dreyfus, who is federal Attorney-General. Mr Dreyfus held the seat by a 10.4 per cent margin in 2010. However, JWS Research polling in June found the ALP could face a 15.4 per cent swing against the party at the 2013 federal election. JWS Research polling in June in Isaacs and other Victorian electorates considered to be “safe Labor seats” was reportedly a factor in the ALP’s subsequent decision to oust Julia Gillard as prime minister in late June and reinstate Kevin Rudd. The Liberal Party originally nominated Jeff Shelley to contest the seat at this year’s election, but he was replaced by Garry Spencer in Marchr, amid suggestions the party was troubled by Mr Shelley’s connection with failed solar power company Cool World. There are nine candidates for the seat of Isaacs in this year’s federal election: James Leach (Democratic Labor Party), Nadia Seaman (Rise Up Australia Party) and Avtar Singh Gill (Palmer United Party) did not reply to enquiries from The News. Voters go to the polls on Saturday 7 September.

What do you consider to be the three most important issues affecting the Isaacs electorate? As someone that has grown up, worked, and purchased my first home in the area, I’ve found that the most important issues for Isaacs are public transport, housing affordability and job opportunities. What personal qualities do you offer the Isaacs electorate? I currently work in aged and disability care in the east of the electorate and that puts me in contact with a huge range of people from all walks of life. Those born with disabilities, acquired disabilities, and those struggling with the challenges that age and illness bring, are the people I spend my day helping. It has also taught me a lot about how people interact with their surrounding community, and how some people can fall by the way and become isolated when services are lacking.

What do you consider to be the most important issues affecting the Isaacs electorate? Public transport is a key concern. Our rail services are overstretched and outdated; many of our stations badly need modernising to cope with increased demand, particularly from daily commuters. Isaacs is blessed with some world class natural resources – our beaches are a prime example. But we need to be active and vigilant to protect and conserve them. And we need strong environmental management policies to do this. The recent evidence of foreshore erosion – an emerging impact of climate change, but also due to some ill-advised dredging activities – is a case for concern. What personal qualities do you offer the Isaacs electorate? I’m a long-term local resident, living in Parkdale. Most of my career, in community work, has been based in the electorate of Isaacs. This gives me a strong perspective on the needs of Isaacs communities and reflects a commitment to working for the people in these communities. I’m passionate about the environment and the imperative of handing down our natural resource assets to the generations that follow us.

What do you consider to be the most important issues affecting the Isaacs electorate? Growing pressures on the cost of living and the impact this has on the family unit. There needs to be a family impact statement on all new legislation that the Government brings in. More support for small businesses which are the backbone of this country. Less red tape. More support for our youth, with an emphasis on more apprenticeships. What personal qualities do you offer the Isaacs electorate? I am a long-term resident of the area, love my community and am very personable.

Green wedge planning changes are forever OPINION By Ranald Macdonald and David Gill IT appears there has been either a classic administrative stuff-up or a ministerial backflip in mid-air. The Victorian Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure late last month released the approved rural zones on its website, the last zones to be considered in the government’s zone reform program. The minister’s press statement was headed ‘‘Green Wedges to thrive from Planning Reform’’ yet the release seemed to confirm fears about the future of green wedge protection, following on from the government’s decision to seek private investment and award 99-year leases in national parks. The approved green wedge zone dismantled the framework of controls and requirements relating to major tourism development that had been established in 2002, and which responded to the ever-increasing pressures arising from metropolitan growth. For decades after 1968, all Victorian political parties agreed that a proper mix of country and city, urban and suburban, was in the best interests of the community. But increasingly a view has been presented that green areas need to ‘‘pay their way’’ – not just through supporting agriculture, recreation and conservation of the environment but by being available for a range of commercial and quasi-commercial uses including restaurants, group accommodation, residential hotels and function centres and, more recently, proposals for schools, medical centres

and service stations. Of course the minister, Matthew Guy, would argue that changes enabling consideration of a wide range of uses simply enables councils to consider applications on their merits. Except this is a recipe for speculative applications, loophole hunting at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal and so the gradual undermining of the green wedges. The principle that green wedge areas need to be carefully protected is not best served by a one-at-atime consideration of applications – therefore the announced changes to the green wedge zone left many people in doubt about the future. And then something happened. A day later, the department website said

Chelsea – Mordialloc News 4 September 2013

there had been a publishing error. This was no ordinary publishing error, rather an entirely different green wedge zone appears to have been approved, retaining the majority of the existing control framework and, in fact, adding an additional prohibition on freeway service centres. That, as they say, is the good news. The bad is the fate of the other rural zones, and particularly the farming zone and rural conservation zones. These, unfortunately, do not appear to have been improved by any overnight reassessment. In these zones the previous requirement that tourism development should occur in conjunction with either agricultural use or rural industry has been removed. This invites the question: how will

farming compete against myriad other uses and, more insidiously, is farming just a transient use waiting for a better offer? The two of us raised our concerns a year ago about the threats to our national parks and recreation reserves. We were rubbished by the planning minister. But at least it forced Mr Guy to respond. In an article (‘‘Vocal minority peddling porkies on planning zone changes’’, The Age, 27/9/12), he suggested he was following in the footsteps of former Liberal premier Dick Hamer and planning minister Alan Hunt, architects of our green wedges. Do not worry, he said, the government is acting in your best interests. Matthew Guy is a shrewd politician.

He recognises that the way to ensure he achieves his objectives is to first say that Armageddon is the only way. The pressure to accommodate the huge population increase requires him to totally overhaul planning, whatever the consequences. Also, he warned that our tourism is not sufficiently developed to be competitive. Then he pulls back from his apocalyptic planning scenario, and wants to leave us saying that the changes he has instituted in the green wedges are not as bad as they might have been. But meanwhile, the reformed rural conservation and farming zones are apparently ‘‘open for business’’. Given the minister has recently said it is ‘‘very important to protect our best quality farmland’’, this is a period of very mixed messages. Changes to Victoria’s planning strategy will impact on our lives forever and, as now being forced on us, are likely to be to the detriment of all but a selected few. Civil libertarian James Bovard once said: ‘‘Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner.’’ In this case it appears the wolves have decided that, this time, swallowing the green wedges might cause a little too much indigestion – but that other rural areas are fair game.  Ranald Macdonald is a member of Flinders Community Association and a former managing director of The Age. David Gill is a former Shire of Mornington mayor, a member of the Westernport Regional Planning Authority and chairman of planning for the shire.

What do you consider to be the most important issues affecting the Isaacs electorate? Red/green tape and bureaucratic madness, especially for small businesses. Lowering the cost of living by repealling the carbon tax and reducing the excise plus GST on fuel. Defending our heritage, culture, values and freedom. What personal qualities do you offer the Isaacs electorate? I am a part owner in a small business. I also do a lot of voluntary work in the community such as foster care. And most importantly, I don’t overspend my budget. I am a hardworker and very task-orientated. Australian Christians is not trying to make everyone follow the Christian faith, but we also don’t want our faith, family and freedom to be removed from being ‘normal’.

What do you consider to be the most important issues affecting the Isaacs electorate? Locals in Isaacs have been telling me that the cost of living is a real issue, with many families struggling to make ends meet. Job security is also a worry, with many local businesses needing more support to keep their doors open and their employees in work. Finally, locals want to see improvements to services and infrastructure. What personal qualities do you offer the Isaacs electorate? I’m a local who has lived in Isaacs for over 20 years. I’m also an proven leader with experience in Defence, business and the local community in Isaacs. I know the local area well and I know many of the people who make this part of Melbourne such a great place to live and work. Have worked hard for the community. Led the campaign for a new athletic track at Mentone, established the Friends of Mentone Station & Gardens and as convenor of the Mordialloc Creek Community, fought for the dredging of 22,000 tonnes of silt from Mordialloc Creek. I’m not afraid to stand up for my community and I know what it takes to build up a strong local team and to get things done.

What do you consider to be the most important issues affecting the Isaacs electorate? It is essential that the government supports local jobs and worker’s rights and conditions. Since 2007, Labor has protected jobs during the global financial crisis and has created more than 950,000 new jobs. We will continue to build the new industries of the future with our $1 billion jobs program. I have spoken to many local families about the benefits of federal Labor’s Better Schools funding reforms. An average school will receive an extra $1.7 million, so our children can get more individual attention and reach their full potential. The Frankston train line is a significant issue in our community. That is why Labor is delivering $3 billion to fund the Melbourne Metro Rail tunnel, which will add 19 additional peak-hour services across the network, catering for more than 20,000 new rail passengers an hour in peak time. What personal qualities do you offer the Isaacs electorate? I was a self-employed senior barrister before being elected to represent the people of Isaacs in 2007. I am a good listener and strong advocate for our community. Throughout my career, I have fought for social justice and believe in creating a sustainable, healthy environment for our children and grandchildren.

KINGSTON residents can have their say on transport policy by completing a Kingston Council survey by 11 September. The survey results and suggestions will help council develop an integrated transport strategy to identify transport gaps in Kingston. The survey asks residents to provide details on where they regularly travel and whether it is difficult to get there. Responses will be private and anonymous. Mayor Ron Brownlees urged residents to help provide a comprehensive picture on how Kingston residents travel and the issues they may face along the way. “We’d like to know how you get to work, appointments, sport or shopping and whether transport, financial or disability issues might make this difficult,” Cr Brownlees said. “This information will help us identify, for example, where we may need to advocate to the state government for more bus routes.” The online survey is available to complate at www.kingston.vic.gov.au/transportconsultation. Copies are also available at council customer service centres and libraries. Call Erin Pattie on 9581 4806 or email erin.pattie@kingston.vic.gov.au for more details.

The story of an ill-gotten gain By Stuart McCullough IT arrived without warning. Flushed with excitement, I immediately opened the email, eager to read its contents. Little did I realize that I was opening not so much an email as an absolute Pandora’s worm. It began with a simple if not traditional greeting of ‘hello Stuart’ before taking me to task for a sizeable violation of the English language. Had I accidently reverted to my native Esperanto without realising? Relied too heavily on facial expressions? Apparently not. My crime was far greater than any of these. I had, it seems, used the word ‘gotten’ in an article. The email was as simple as it was devastating. It said that ‘gotten’ appears in neither the Oxford nor Webster dictionaries. It then informed me that ‘gotten’ is an American term, the past participle of the term ‘get’. It was at this point that I noted the almost complete absence of anything in the email resembling grammar. Under those heightened circumstances, it seemed a touch harsh of my correspondent to want to castigate me for using the word ‘gotten’ whilst simultaneously forsaking anything resembling a proper sentence. I contemplated correcting the errors and returning the email, but averred for fear it might seem confrontational. Clearly, my correspondent was on a mission. I would need to apologise, forthwith. I could start by telling him that I don’t know what possessed me. I’d say ‘I don’t know what had gotten into me’ but that might prompt a further email. The missive concluded with the entreaty, ‘We are Australians

Nothing better to do with their time: Noah Webster, founder of the Webster Dictionary, after receiving a letter from a reader who took exception at the inclusion of the word ‘gotten’ in his first edition.

not Yanks so forget the word Gotten… Aussie language only please.’ Once heard, it’s difficult to forget a word like ‘gotten’, but I’ll do my best. So in response to that heartfelt appeal to avoid culturally inappropriate terms and stick to the Australian vernacular, allow me to declare that

I will absolutely, categorically, fo’ shizzle, do my upmost from this moment on. That said, I must admit to being curious as to the claim that the term ‘gotten’ is notable for its absence from both the Oxford and Webster Dictionaries. I am mindful, too, that

the Webster dictionary is, in fact, quintessentially American, having first been published either by Emmanuel Lewis during the 1984 production break of the sitcom ‘Webster’ or by Noah Webster in the early nineteenth Century. Either way, the Webster dictionary is absolutely, 100% American. Not that Noah Webster didn’t have his own critics to contend with. In 1806, Webster published ‘A Compendious Dictionary of the English Language’. It’s a great pity that all dictionaries do not have a title as plainly superb as Webster’s first effort. But instead of universal acclaim, he was severely criticised by some. Whether this was for including or omitting the term ‘gotten’ is no longer known. I doubt, however, it was by email. He upped the ante a few decades later with a two-volume version that was denounced as radical and saw some openly question the sanity of the author. All the same, his suggested spellings for words such as ‘center’ and ‘color’ have continued to this day, even if his proposals for ‘wimmen’ and ‘groop’ never got off the ground. Perhaps it’s just as well. As for the Oxford dictionary, with the possible exception of HP Sauce and The Beatles, it’s hard to think of anything more English. I do, however, have an Oxford dictionary and after receiving the email, immediately set about seeing if the rumours were true. Bless its gotten socks, the term ‘gotten’ does, in fact, appear in the Oxford dictionary, albeit it fleetingly. Under the term ‘gotten’ it simply reads, ‘see GET’. Presumably the ‘LOST’ is silent. Flipping back a few

pages I discover under ‘get’ that it is, indeed, an American variant. But what of it? I don’t mean to quibble, but despite what my correspondent may think, ‘Aussie’ is not actually a language. Not that it’s a bad idea. In fact, were it up to me I’d like to see English abolished as our primary language in favour of something that’s entirely homegrown. Forget becoming a Republic – the true path to independence comes by having your own language. If those folks at Star Trek can invent ‘Klingon’, surely it’s not beyond us? Imagine it. Just as Eskimos are said to have more than fifty words for ‘snow’, ‘Aussie’ could take the same approach to ‘beer’. Finally, someone would be able to accurately translate the lyrics of ‘Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi, oi, oi’. The possibilities are endless… It’s always nice to receive correspondence, but I’m not sure quite how to take a demand to only use ‘Aussie’. Part of me is tempted to placate the various sheilas, blokes and drongos who feel so strongly about it, whilst the rest of me is quite comfortable stealing language from where I please. Frankly, I never meant to generate this level of conflict. I simply can’t believe the mess that I’ve gotten getted gettended myself into. It seems I have little choice – the time has finally come to abandon English altogether and to go ‘full time’ with Esperanto. Or Klingon. Or maybe I shouldn’t worry so much and just relax. It is, after all, much ado about nothing. Or, as they say in Klingon, paghmo’ tIn mIS. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

Performance GLENN Shorrock was the Little River’s band’s lead vocalist and, arguably, most interesting songwriter, for seven years. Before LRB he had been part of two of Australia’s most popular bands of the sixties, Twilights and Axiom. His first solo venture was Bobby Darin’s Dream Lover in 1979 which became his first Top 10 solo hit. Glenn Shorrock’s career spans almost half a century and his stint with Little River Band saw over 25 million albums sold. Aztec Records has released a new CD Glenn Shorrock: 45 Years of Song. This special 2CD 29-track set, recorded at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre in July 2010, sees him power through a smorgasbord of hits from his previous bands and solo career, including Help Is On Its Way, Reminiscing, Lonesome Loser, Meanwhile, Little Ray Of Sunshine, Days On The Road and many more. Glenn Shorrock: 45 Years of Song is a two-hour concert with full band (strings, brass, three guitars, keyboards, bass, drums and backup singers), expertly digitally mastered by Gil Matthews with a handsome digipak package and an informative 24-page booklet written by noted Australian rock writer Ian McFarlane. Another document of classic Australian music on the Aztec label, and a must for Shorrock fans. Available at all good record stores. www.aztecrecords.com.au *** JAYDEN Davies is 17 and has been diagnosed with osteosarcoma which is a form of bone cancer. Tumours form on his bones and as they grow they destroy the bone and cause enormous pain. He is undergoing treatment to shrink these tumours and to manage his pain, but since he has numerous tumours the doctors cannot guarantee he will beat this insidious disease. A fundraiser is being held for Jayden to give his family some financial support. They can then concentrate on spending time with Jayden whilst he fights for his life.

The fundraiser will be held at the Peninsula Community Theatre, Mornington on Wednesday 11 September, 6.30-10.30pm. Cost is $50 per person which includes a 2 course dinner. Items will be auctioned on the night and tickets are available www.trybooking.com/60856 or for more information contact including donations contact Michelle Roberts 0478 082 646. Check Facebook: facebook.com/jaydendaviessupport *** RONNIE Burn’s 1967 hit Coalman was written by the Bee Gees who also provided backing vocals. At first Ronnie was reluctant to hear any of their compositions but was persuaded by his producer Nat Kipner to listen to some of their material. He followed it up with another Bee Gee composition,

Exit Stage Right. Barry McGuire’s 1965 hit Eve of Destruction was originally meant to be a B-side. It was recorded about 4am when McGuire’s voice was raw and husky after recording several other songs. He was meant to re-record the vocals but an over eager record executive thought it sounded great the way it was. Despite being banned in several US states, it became a million seller. It made No.2 on the Melbourne charts and stayed in the charts for 14 weeks. The Elvis Presley song Edge of Reality (1969) was the B-side to If I Can Dream. Edge of Reality became a hit in Australia but was ignored in the USA and UK where If I Can Dream became the chart hit.

will pay tribute to one of its pioneers, Australian icon and country music legend, Slim Dusty. Just a few months on from the 10th anniversary of the passing of the King of Australian Country Music, the festival will celebrate Slim’s contribution to Australian country music and culture through a number of special events. The 2014 festival will pay tribute to Slim in a number of ways including the unveiling of a bronze statue of country music’s first couple, Slim and his wife Joy McKean in a prominent location in the CBD. The statue recognises the huge contribution Slim Dusty and Joy McKean have made to Australia’s musical heritage and the integral role they played in helping to establish Tamworth as the Country Music Capital. Other special activities planned during the Festival include an exhibition of Slim Dusty’s personal memorabilia, footage and photos at Festival Headquarters and a special concert in his honour. The 2014 Tamworth Country Music Festival will be held from Friday 17 to Sunday 26 January. www.slimdusty.com.au

A Grain of Salt WHILE the federal election and football have been imprisoning the headlines Doctor Den and his planning cohorts talk of “nature-based” tourism development in our national parks calling for potential developers to come forward. 99 year leases (read forever) will certainly lure those “potential” developers out of the woodwork, if indeed it hasn’t already been discussed at length in the darkened backrooms of the power clique, including my mates at the Institute of Public Affairs. Do they have senior ASIO executives as IPA members? “Boys and boys come out to play, happy and well the laxette way”. If it wasn’t so serious it would be funny. Never forgetting Mr Smoothie (Matty Guy) and his backflip on the re-zoning of farmland to residential; 24-hectare property at Ventnor overlooking Western Port Bay and secret millions in compensation. Social commentator Hugh Mackay would say “forgive generously”. Like fun. *** AS a Collingwood supporter I’m obliged to hate Essendon but really I think it’s tragic they have been deprived of playing in this year’s final series which they thoroughly earned by finishing in the top eight. No problem with Hird���s punishment, loss of draft picks and a fine but surely those 2012 jabs should not be connected with the team’s 2013 performance, not to men-

PAGE 22

tion the loss to all those loyal Essendon supporters, who I may well hate but know full well are no different to Collingwood supporters? *** THE Herald Sun’s hypocritical editorial reads “the truth must come out”. It rarely does but it has a nice sound to it; likely half truths, misinformation and gossip borne of bias. ASADA are public servants; surely enough said? An intriguing side effect has been the case for the defence coming from Herald Sun chief football writer Mark Robinson (Essendon) and the opposite and forceful point of view from Caroline Wilson from The Age. I would have preferred James Hird cop the blame early with a statement of reasons defending his innocence, do his time and everyone revert to an “as is” situation. I think of the story of the elephant and dragon conflict. The dragon got under the elephant’s belly and sucked his blood so long till the elephant fell down almost dead upon the dragon and killed him; both were ruined. If you have received a wrong, wisely consider it, and compose yourself with the patience to bear it. Honesty is sufficient reward. Yeah yeah. *** LASTLY, the AFL, as always, is aligned with profit.

times for television, making the game quicker (rule changes) again for television, the laughable camera jobs on disputed goals and the ridiculous talk about cutting down the number of players on and off the bench despite the fact none of us care how many times they come on and off. Mark Robinson says (when he takes the odd break from his raves against Andrew Demetriou) “Supporters like to see their stars on the field”. How would he know? Again where’s Mike Sheahan when we need him? The AFL employs 500 people. What do they do? Enough! *** ANOTHER election bites the dust allowing us to move on to the mighty Magpies who sadly won’t last long. [I’m guessing; I write this column before the event]. It will be nice to have a break prior to waking in horror at the broken promises (what promises?), all eventually to be forgotten in three years’ time. We’ve survived before and we shall again. Pauly Keating and little Johnny Howard are but memories. Spending on health (including aged care), education and infrastructure will be temporarily paused, if not cut, in pursuit of a phantom surplus but the good news is there will be no change to the unfair tax breaks for high earners and negative gearing shall remain, so for-

Some of my best friends (wage earners, pensioners, fixed income) vote Liberal. I don’t blame them. I know nothing about woodwork either. Culture is what we need, the serenity after the football finals. Note for Cliffy: Cancel Foxtel Footy after Collingwood’s demise. *** LIVING alone requires continuous effort; shopping, cooking, washing and cleaning. I awake, eat my vita brits and read the newspaper followed by my brisk healthy 100-metre morning walk to the cafe for coffee and read the free Herald Sun front to back in 90 seconds. “And what’s on today, Cliff?” Good question. Where is a good woman when you need one; or better still a bad one? Sadly such things are performance based. A need for inspiration as in filling the gaps with at least a sense of enthusiasm. Crooked, sometimes corrupt politicians state and federal don’t help. We look to sport and we get Essendon and our cricket team? Get rid of Michael Clarke; good batsman bad captain. Remember that comic strip, Sad Sack? Sorry, I strayed; culture. *** “I CAN’T paint or act or write or

By Cliff Ellen dance, I’m not artistic”. Think again. We all have imagination, we simply don’t apply it. We all act every day; we all have dreams; our unique experiences. Try writing; your life, point of view; whatever suits you. Half a dozen painting classes can open the door to yourself, your imagination. A good teacher may unlock the key via inspiration. Those who can and those who can’t means some have found a way to express themselves, through the written, the visual or the oral medium. In making the effort to open the door, as in applying yourself, the results can be staggering or simply satisfying or simply exercising your brain, and all for your own benefit, perhaps even pleasure? Stay clear of woodwork. *** “We are like flies taking the side of the spiders” [Voltaire]. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

Sorrento grabs victory from the jaws of defeat NEPEAN LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly SORRENTO staged a wonderful fight back in the dying minutes of the Nepean League Preliminary final on Saturday to snatch a win from the jaws of defeat against Rosebud. In a see-sawing battle all afternoon, Sorrento kicked three goals in five minutes to turn a 16 point deficit into an unlikely two point win. In last week’s second semi final against Dromana, the Sharks dominated for 95 per cent of the game, only to get overrun in the final 15 minutes. Sorrento didn’t deserve to lose. On Saturday, the Sharks didn’t deserve to win. However, what the result produced was the Grand Final this Saturday at Frankston Park that everyone wanted to see – Dromana v Sorrento.

Rosebud was unlucky to lose, big time. At the 26-minute mark of the last quarter, the Buds were up by almost three goals. The Buds came into the match with a game plan and executed it to perfection, except for the dying minutes of the match. No-one gave them any hope of winning the game and many were simply hoping for a good contest. There wasn’t a person at the ground who expected Rosebud to boot five of the first six goals in the final quarter and open-up a 16 point break. Greg Bentley, who had a quiet first half, was at his best in the last, Matthew Payne was simply dominating and Paul Lewis and Tom Baker were having an influence in the ruck and around the ground. The Buds were running on top of

the ground, they had the massive crowd right behind them and a big upset looked likely. However, you can never write-off a brilliant team. Tyrren Head, who was unsighted for the majority of the match, bobbedup to kick two of the last three goals of the game and Leigh Poholke sharked a pack to put his side back in front with a minute left. Rosebud took the ball inside their attacking 50 in the last 30 seconds but Sorrento pushed plenty of numbers back and restricted a score. There was no question that Sorrento midfielder Leigh Treeby was the difference between Sorrento winning and losing. While Scott Cameron was outstanding in the ruck, it was the efforts of Treeby, both inside and outside, who singlehandedly won the Sharks the game.

His work rate was unbelievably good, his defensive pressure was outstanding and he went forward and kicked two goals, both game breakers up against the boundary line. Treeby’s influence on the contest, especially when the game looked to be lost, was a stand-out. Rosebud was superb. Matty Payne, Ryan Spooner, Sam Kremich and Tom Baker were outstanding. In fact, Rosebud hardly had a bad player. But as Buds coach Nick Jewell said after the match, “it doesn’t matter if you win on the ground, you have to win on the scoreboard”. Sorrento coach Nick Claringbold obviously was relieved after the match. “Put it this way, it took a while for me to calm down,” Claringbold said. ‘Last week I thought we didn’t deserve to lose and this week I thought

Rosebud was the better team all day. “We lacked energy and intensity throughout but we did have, and always have, is a belief that we can win. “We could have easily let it slip away in the last quarter but we kept pushing. It was good. “Our boys were sore after the Dromana game and they’re even more sore after this match. “It will be a light week on the track and we’ll have the boys refreshed for the grand final.” Dion Phillips is a sure thing to come back into the Sorrento side. “Dion was 80 per cent fit and could have played on Saturday, however, we wanted to ensure that every player was fit for Rosebud. “This week we hope to stick to our structures and play a better brand of footy,” Claringbold said.

All set to spring into action on the bay

Catch of the bay: Squid are prolific at the moment and big spawning females will settle in shallow waters over the coming months.

Chelsea – Mordialloc News 4 September 2013

By Kosta Linardos WELCOME to the first fishing report for the Chelsea-Mordialloc News. Although the past few weeks have seen warmer days, strong northerlies over the past month have often made conditions too windy to get out on the water. Those who have managed to get out on the bay to target snapper have managed fish averaging three kilograms in modest numbers. Whether or not these are the first signs of the annual spawn can be debated, however, most reports are stating that the fish have been bright pink in colour with vibrant blue fins, suggesting these fish are new to the bay. The best fishing sites have been about 12-16 metres off Rickets Point and 18 metres off Mordialloc, with pilchards the best bait.

Squid are still around in great numbers and are a realistic target for landbased anglers. Gan Craft jigs in Alby Stripe, Yamashita in R13 and Gladiator Squid Whiz in white are doing the trick, from Oliver’s Hill through to Mordialloc. Garfish are prevalent at the moment and can be targeted in the boat or from land from Frankston right up to Beaumauris. Lots of berley will keep them around but do not make the mistake of casting as far as possible as they will often be just a few metres from shore. Piers and rocks ledges with surrounding broken rock and weed are great locations to target gars. The fishing has otherwise been fairly quiet mainly due to the bad weather. It’s a great time to start collecting squid, salmon, gars and yakkas for bait

in preparation of the coming snapper season. Get to a local tackle store and stock up on terminal tackle and have your boat and engine serviced now before the post-footy season fishing rush. As soon as that final siren goes on AFL grand ginal day, every fisherman from Mordialloc to Chelsea and right across the bay will go snapper crazy! Good luck.

Sharks are in big one while Stonecats face Eagles PENINSULA LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly BONBEACH moved directly into the Peninsula League Grand Final on Saturday after holding off Frankston YCW in the second semi final. The Stonecats will now will play Edithvale-Aspendale in this weekend’s Preliminary Final after the Eagles belted Mt Eliza in the First Semi at Pines on Sunday. Bonbeach led for the large majority of the afternoon to beat YCW 13.11– 89 to 11.12–78. Frankston YCW led only once in the match, when it held a four-point lead late in the second quarter, before Bonbeach’s Shaun Foster kicked one on the siren to regain the lead at the major interval. As expected, Frankston YCW kept coming at the Sharks all afternoon but on this occasion, Bonbeach was able to respond.

On its two previous occasions this season, Bonbeach has been in the contest, only to be blown away in 15 minutes of footy against YCW. However, on Saturday at Frankston’s Kars St Oval, the Sharks were able to steady and respond. Bonbeach coach Steve Capp said it was great for his side to get into the Grand Final. “At this stage, what we’ve been able to do is earn the right to play in a grand final,” Capp said. “What we need to ensure is that we bring the same intensity, pressure and work rate to the table in two weeks time in the Grand Final. “I thought our concentration over four quarters was really good on Saturday and it was the real reason we won the game. “We’ve had lapses (in concentration) in the past and it’s cost us. We didn’t get that on Saturday”.

Capp said it was great for his group to have the confidence to beat YCW. “We hadn’t beaten Mt Eliza or YCW in the past couple of years and it was just great for the boys to go into a grand final knowing that we have beaten both of them in our past two games,” Capp said. “So, regardless of results, we go into a grand final knowing our best is good enough to win.” Bonbeach started Matty Batten where he finished last week’s game as a forward. Other than that, everything else went as expected. Bonbeach kicked to the Kars St end with the aid of a slight breeze in the opening quarter and squandered some early opportunities (2.6 to 1.2). “I hoped that some easy misses in the first quarter weren’t going to come back and bite us,” Capp said. Those misses didn’t have an effect on the result, the Sharks proving too strong.

Foster finished the afternoon with four goals for the winners while Scott McDonald finished with three. Nathan Robinson and Mark Tyrell, along with Gary Carpenter, were outstanding over four quarters. Anthony Barry led the way for the Stonecats, while Ricky Morris and David Bodley finished with three goals each. In the Sunday game, EdithvaleAspendale controlled proceedings all afternoon to knock over Mt Eliza at Eric Bell Reserve. The Redlegs went into the match without Scott Lockwood and Tim Strickland, both injured, while Dave Willet was dropped from the senior side. Without Lockwood, things were expected to be tough and they proved to be. The Redlegs’ skill level in windy conditions was atrocious, while Edith-

vale managed the conditions a whole lot better. The Eagles led by 24 points at quarter time after kicking with the five goal breeze in the first. At half time the margin was still 22 points and at three quarter time, the Eagles opened-up a 49-point break. The final score was 10.14–74 to 5.7–37. Matt Kremmer kicked three for the Eagles and proved that if he attacks the footy, uses his size and skill to his advantage, that he can have a real influence. Tim Mannix and Troy Ogier were instrumental in the win for the Eagles and Zac Muschialli had a tagging role on Mt Eliza’s Josh Norman and executed it to perfection. For the Redlegs, Karl Lombardozzi, who came into the side, was superb, as was Rohan Heasley and Rob Dyring in attack.
