‘Exclusive’ letter lands Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au

MENTONE Grammar sent a letter directly to Kingston City Council requesting the private school’s Keysborough playing fields be removed from Kingston’s green wedge. School principal Mal Cater and chairman Simon Appel signed the two-page missive addressed to council CEO John Nevins asking that 16 hectares of sports ground land “be rezoned to facilitate future uses which may include residential development” with lots of 300 to 500 square metres. The letter, obtained from council by The News under freedom of information laws, stated that an alteration from restrictive green wedge zoning to Residential 1 Zone or Mixed Use Zone was “appropriate” since the Keysborough playing fields attracted “significant annual cost for maintenance” and had “diminishing utility to the school’s sports curriculum” (due to transport time and cost). Council kept Mentone Grammar’s letter confidential and has refused to explain why the school’s submission was not made public, other than to state the school should be “given the right to provide their views” before any information about the proposal was made public. No other submission made in 2012 as consultant Planisphere was finalising recommendations for the Kingston Green Wedge Plan was provided the same confidentiality by council. Mentone Grammar principal Mal Cater has declined to comment on the matter but did send a letter last month to the families of students attending the school “to provide information relating to recent local media coverage”. The letter stated the school was considering “a number of possible improvements to

the property such as boarding facilities or classrooms for future learning needs”. Lot sizes of 300 to 500 square metres, as requested by Mentone Grammar, would help facilitate residential development on the Keysborough playing field land. If the land, currently used as off-campus playing fields by Mentone Grammar, was sold off for residential development, it has been estimated the elite private school could pocket up to $60 million. Mentone Grammar did not respond to questions from The News before publication about whether it intends to sell off any or all of the land for residential development if planning approval is ultimately given. A narrow majority of Kingston councillors voted last month to push ahead with an investigation into whether the land – along with neighbouring properties in the green wedge between within the boundary of Braeside Park, Southern Golf Club, and Springvale and Governor Rds – could be rezoned for residential purposes. State Planning Minister Matthew Guy told Parliament last month he had “no intention” of approving “anything” on the land when questioned on the matter by opposition planning spokesman Brian Tee (Guy ‘no intention’ to rezone wedge, The News 26/3/14). Despite the Planning Minister having the final say on any rezoning of green wedge land and his assertion he would not consider such proposals, the council is proceeding with its plan to re-consult Planisphere, council officers and land owners. Council spent more than $300,000 of ratepayers’ money developing the Kingston Green Wedge Plan in 2012. Continued Page 4

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 9 April 2014

THE future of Pompei’s Landing at Mordialloc Creek remains uncertain as Leon Pompei gets ready to present his plans for the area to Kingston City Council next week. The son of the late Mordialloc legend Jack Pompei could be kicked off the land that his family has looked after for decades, with council threatening to seek expressions of interest for future use of the prime creek-side strip (‘Pompei legacy threatened’, The News, 26/2/14). Three leases on the crown land are currently held by the Pompei family estate for the peppercorn rent of $104 a year each in an agreement struck with Jack Pompei on behalf on his family. Councillors decided to postpone an EOI process to give Leon and other members of the family time to make a presentation at a councillors information session due to be held on Monday 14 April. The matter will then be discussed again at a council meeting late this

month. Cr Rosemary West said she hoped council could take a “collaborative approach” to working with Leon. Cr West said it would be good if council officers could take into account the historical significance of the Pompei family’s work building up the Mordialloc community over the years, rather than solely treat the issue as “a property matter”. Leon hosted a barbecue last month for supporters to gather and let him know many Mordialloc residents supported a continuation of the Pompei legacy at the creek. Leon runs part of the Pompei family business at the creek and also sells marine paints from a shed on the land. Council’s long-term plans for the creek include the possible construction of a maritime museum and restaurant. The News confirmed with council that the leases at Pompei’s Landing, based on licences on crown land, can be renewed by council for up to three years at a time without the need for a

public EOI process but a spokesperson said “that would not be good process”. Leon said he was looking forward to being given the chance to present his business plan and offer to keep working positively with council. “It’s disappointing it’s come to this but I look forward to making my case to council next week,” he said. Cr West said she believed council had made a promise to Jack Pompei before he passed away in 2008 to keep the land available for his family “as long as there was a Pompei willing to work there”. The leases were transferred to Jack Pompei’s wife, Gwen, in 2008 and then on to the family estate when she died in 2012. Leon said he would prefer the leases to be transferred into his name to provide long-term certainty and planning at the site. He said this would give him a chance to invest in and improve the area.

DID someone call for The Doctor? The Time Lord’s TARDIS time machine has materialised in Chelsea at Notions Unlimited Bookshop. The TARDIS will remain earthbound for a couple of weeks before heading off to other times and dimensions in space in the future. Or the past. Doctor Who fans can see the replica of The Doctor’s TARDIS in store but should beware that time is of the essence before it dematerialises. The Master of Notions Unlimited, Chuck McKenzie, said people were welcome to visit the shop to take their photo with the iconic blue police public call box. The shop came under attack by a full-scale Dalek in November last year so it’s perhaps no surprise that The Doctor now seems to have arrived on the scene. “Everyone loves Doctor Who and it’s great to see the excitement the arrival of the TARDIS has regenerated after the Dalek invasion,â€? he said. Chuck has an extra incentive for aficionados of the long-running BBC TV show to visit the store. Any customers who wear a full Doctor Who costume can receive a 10 per cent discount on any Doctor Who merchandise, graphic novels or books. “Don’t just come in waving a sonic screwdriver around,â€? he said. “It’s time to see Doctor Who fans out and about in full costume.â€? ď Žď€ Notions Unlimited Bookshop is at Chelsea Beach Arcade, Shop 9, 426 Nepean Hwy, Chelsea Call 9773 1102 www.notionsunlimitedbookshop.blogspot.com

Council ward fund ban looms Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au KINGSTON councillors could lose the right to distribute ward funds if state government legislation introduced in Parliament last week is passed. The government move follows an independent report by the municipal watchdog, the Local Government Inspectorate, which found 32 of Victoria’s 79 councils risked breaching local government laws when councillors distributed discretionary funds. The watchdog’s report, released in October last year, noted Kingston City Council was “formally reviewing� its councillors’ discretionary funds poli-

cy and many councils did not have appropriate controls in place to prevent corrupt or fraudulent behaviour. Kingston councillors are allocated $6000 in ward funds to hand out to community groups each financial year. Kingston council decided councillors should sign a declaration stating whether they had a conflict of interest when distributing ward funds, but an investigation by The News shortly after the policy was introduced in October last year found the declaration was often not completed by councillors (‘Errors plague grant records’, The News, 15/1/14). The conflict of interest declaration has been completed by all councillors

in all instances ward funds have been distributed since January. Acting council CEO Paul Franklin told The News in January that councillors also had to advise whether they had a conflict of interest with regards to ward funds distribution at monthly meetings and no such declaration had been made by any councillor between October and December last year. Kingston councillor Geoff Gledhill had tried to convince his fellow councillors in February this year to amend council’s ward grants policy to stop funds being distributed to politically motivated groups or organisations. His proposal was defeated. Cr Gledhill said he had read the latest legislation and agreed that rate-

payers’ money should be spent “in a responsible way�. He said it was “a shame� council had not taken the initiative on the issue. “It was important to demonstrate that council was responsible with ratepayers’ money and was prepared to tighten up processes,� Cr Gledhill. “Unfortunately this was resisted by some.� He said he was happy for the ward grants system to continue since it does provide quick funds to small projects without the need to deal with red tape. “It’s unfortunate if the ward grants system is scrapped because it can be of benefit to the community if used properly,� Cr Gledhill said.

However, he said safeguards had to be put in place and council may consider an alternative way to continue funding small community projects if the wards grant system is banned by the state government. Cr Rosemary West was one of four councillors who opposed changing the ward grants rules since she believed it would result in “a witch hunt exercise� with community groups unable to conduct pre-council election questionnaires to ask candidates where they stood on specific issues. “This allows voters to know what people are standing for before an election and this makes them accountable for their actions if elected,� Cr West said.

Exclusive land plan Continued from Page 1 However, the council declined to detail how much further consultations would cost when asked by The News other than to say any legal work involved would be “minimal”. Council said recently passed resolutions to start preparations to rezone parts of the green wedge were “in line with the outcomes of broad community engagement, the independent Green Wedge Plan and as part of council’s own decision-making process.” “Council has not had any discussion with the Minister for Planning; however following the resolution Kingston has commenced discussions with the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure and, as is common practice, will seek legal advice,” Cr Peulich said. “After these discussions are held

and advice is received, the matter will be presented to Councillors to decide whether to proceed with changes to the planning scheme.” Council expected the advice would be put to councillors in the coming months. The green wedge remains a divisive issue among Kingston councillors with many hours of debate at council meetings dedicated to discussions on which aspects of the Kingston Green Wedge Plan should be adopted, mostly split down pro and anti-development lines with no sign of compromise on either side. Councillors voted last month to develop a ‘Green Wedge Communications Plan’ in an effort to “better inform the Kingston community and interested stakeholders about Kingston’s Green Wedge”.

Lucky RSL winner on a roll

Dear John letter: The correspondence from Mentone Grammar to Kingston City Council obtained by The News under freedom of information laws.

FORTNIGHTLY visits to Longbeach RSL have led to Bonbeach resident Phillip Ritchie hitting the jackpot. The 58-year-old won a new car in a competition draw by the RSL and collected the keys to a new Volkswagon Apollo last week. RSL members received a competition entry for every $20 they spent at the Chelsea venue between January and March this year. RSL branch president Michael Weissenfeld said more than 12,500 entries had a chance to scoop up the big prize. “It was a promotion to increase membership and it certainly did that,” Mr Weissenfeld said. “But it was good

to see such a deserving recipient be so lucky to win.” Mr Ritchie has been confined to a wheelchair due to complications after an operation in 2004 to remove a kidney to donate to his sister. “I was rapt when I heard I won,” Mr Ritchie said. “I don’t drive but I’ll be giving the car to my girlfriend.” He said the car would be ideal to help him get out and about, including regular trips to Longbeach RSL in future. Mr Weissenfeld said Longbeach RSL had displayed the German-made car in the venue’s foyer and this had increased interest in the draw.

Long winding road back to Yesterday WREFORD Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au IT was almost 50 years ago today when The Beatles toured Australia and the musical milestone has sent Peter “Hank” Jackson on a magical mystery tour of memories from when he worked with band in the 1960s. The Parkdale aged care facility resident worked as a studio assistant at the world-famous Abbey Road studios from 1960 to 1969 and witnessed the rise of the Fab Four from an unknown Liverpool band to unparalleled global success. He was born in Waterford in Ireland and moved to the bright city lights of London looking for work at the dawn of the 1960s. Mr Jackon said he saw a newspaper advert asking for job applications from “someone who enjoys music and is strong”. He got the gig and soon found himself working with studio engineers tasked with capturing the sounds of many of the big name artists of the day such as Gerry and The Pacemakers, Freddie and The Dreamers and Cliff Richard. The 82-year-old’s Irish eyes were smiling as he recalled The Beatles’ first visit to the Abbey Road recording studios. “They were a good bunch of lads,” Mr Jackson said. “I told them they sounded very good but that they weren’t the best band I’d seen come in that week.” The initial recording session in June 1962 included a take of Love Me Do, which became The Beatles’

first single later that year. Mr Jackson said some of the band’s instruments and amps were not in good condition so the studio hands had to work hard to patch up the equipment as best they could. It was a stark contrast to the band’s later work when The Beatles pushed the sonic envelope of 60s studio techniques to record psychedelic masterpieces such as the innovative Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Mr Jackson said he got on well

with John Lennon, who called him his “lucky leprechaun” during recording sessions. He said Paul McCartney was also “up for a laugh” while George Harrison was always polite “but quiet”. He said he felt sorry for drummer Pete Best when he was sacked from the band but “it was obvious something wasn’t quite right between them” and Ringo Starr’s recruitment “lightened up” recording sessions. “Pete Best was a better drummer than Ringo though,” he said. Mr Jackson emigrated to Australia

in 1970 with his wife, Maureen, and initially found it tough to adjust to working in a factory in Geelong after the heady days of the swinging sixties. Just the year before, Mr Jackson was among the select rooftop audience at Abbey Road studios to witness The Beatles’ final live performance together. Footage from that January 1969 day was used in the documentary film Let It Be released in 1970 after The Beatles split up. He also saw the band being photographed for the iconic Abbey Road album cover on the zebra crossing near the studio. “It only took about 15 minutes to take the pictures - it had to be quick because they got permission for the police to stop traffic for the band.” Mr Jackson became known as “The Singing Leprachaun” and used his own musical talents to play the accordian and raise thousands of dollars over the years for charities and community organisations. He was given the nickname “Hank” during a stint as a presenter at radio station 3DB. He worked for about 20 years as an orderly at the Royal Children’s and The Alfred hosptials and raised money for both both during and after his time there. Mr Jackson said he could have visited Australia earlier than 1970. He had hoped to accompany The Beatles on their 1964 tour but said he heard some within the band’s management regarded him as “a bad influence and distraction” since he got on so well with the group.

Dreyfus hails court’s historic whale ruling Chris Brennan chris@baysidenews.com.au

Huntsman the good guy ARACHNOPHOBES – turn the page now. As the weather begins to cool off slightly, you’ll spend more time in the home and car but so will the muchmaligned huntsman spider. It’s also starting to spend more time indoors as it hunts for insects before this food source starts to hibernate. You’ll soon start to notice the huntsman in cracks and crevices or running across the dashboard of your car. Don’t panic! The huntsman is actually your friend, says Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife CEO Susanna Bradshaw. “They cannot seriously hurt you,” she said. “Keep an eye out for the mountain huntsman, which is grey with black marks on its abdomen, the shield or badge huntsman, which is brown and very flat, the social huntsman, which is brown and often hangs out in large groups, and the giant huntsman.” Ms Bradshaw said many people are afraid of the huntsman “probably because they are so big – up to 15 centimetres in some species – and their habit

of hiding in cars and corners of rooms.” “While they look intimidating with their hairy legs and large pincers, they’re not dangerous to humans and are very timid,” she said. “They hide behind the sun visor in the car because they love hiding behind tree bark in their natural environment. You’ll see them on the ceiling and walls because they are looking for insects.” “Huntsmans are easily disturbed and can move very fast, which is not a good combination for people scared of spiders. They are very handy to have in the garden because they keep insect numbers down. They are lone hunters and stalk all sorts of creepy crawlies that you won’t want in your property such as cockroaches, other spiders and even mosquitoes.” “If you find one in your house or car, remain calm. If you are driving when you spot one, try not to panic. Many people have had accidents when a huntsman appears mid-journey. Pull over when it is safe and figure out a way to evict your eight-legged passenger. More information is at www.backyardbuddies.net.au

FEDERAL member for Isaacs Mark Dreyfus last week hailed the International Court of Justice’s ruling against Japanese whaling in the Southern Ocean, saying the decision showed what Australians could achieve “if we are willing to stand up and fight for what we believe in”. The former attorney general said last week’s ruling, which found Japan's Antarctic whaling program was not for scientific purposes and therefore illegal under international law, vindicated the former Labor government’s decision to launch legal action at the world court. “Australians en masse believe that whaling should stop in the Southern Ocean,” Mr Dreyfus said last week. “That’s the point we took to the world court, and we’ve been vindicated.” Mr Dreyfus, whose federal seat extends from Carrum to Mordialloc, last year presented the final arguments in Australia’s case against Japan’s whaling program in the Southern Ocean to the International Court of Justice in the Netherlands. “It was the first time an environmental convention like this was taken before the world court and that pioneering nature of the case shouldn’t be forgotten,” Mr Dreyfus said, adding that Australia should feel “very pleased” at the result. The historic legal action was launched by the Rudd government in 2010 and

Whale of a case: MP Mark Dreyfus

followed more than 20 years of disagreement between Australia and Japan over so-called “scientific whaling”. The US warned Australia against taking legal action, as did then opposition leader Tony Abbott who said it would “needlessly antagonise our most important trading partner”. Tokyo had used a loophole in the international whaling ban that allowed it to continue hunt and kill whales ostensibly for the collection of scientific data. However, the court concluded Japan’s whaling program was not for legitimate scientific research as defined under International Whaling Commission rules, but had instead been conducted for “logistical and political” reasons. Japan said it would respect last Monday’s ruling despite its “deep disappointment” at the landmark decision and on Thursday announced it was cancelling

its annual Antarctic whaling hunt for the first time in more than a quarter of a century. Since 1988, Japan has killed more than 10,000 minke whales in the Southern Ocean. However, Mr Dreyfus said that while the ICJ ruling was final and could not be appealed, it would not stop commercial whaling entirely. “What they haven’t done is to completely order cessation for all time, and that’s something that our new government is going to have to take up with Japan,” he said. “The court said in its judgement that the whaling convention, and the terms of the moratorium, permit the taking of whales for scientific purposes, and that’s the question that has to be answered.” Mr Dreyfus said the outcome of last Monday’s decision had been far from certain, describing it as “a very hard case” to prove, despite his certainty that Japan’s annual whale slaughter had had nothing to do with science. In the lead-up to his presentation of Australia’s closing arguments at The Hague last July, Mr Dreyfus said Japan was not conducting a scientific research program. “It’s a heap of body parts taken from a large number of dead whales.” He said Japan had not made a serious attempt to explore non-lethal research methods, such as those employed by Australia, including a world-first tagging program to satellite tracking devices to whales.

Mordi life savers celebrate bright future THE state government last week announced a $1 million contribution towards the $3.6 million redevelopment of Mordialloc Life Saving club. Police and Emergency Services Minister Kim Wells was joined by Mordialloc MP Lorraine Wreford to announce the funding agreement at the club’s Nippers presentation night on Saturday. Mordialloc Life Saving Club redevelopment works will involve construction of a two-storey clubhouse which will feature an observation tower, large changing rooms and storage areas, as well as function and training rooms that are to be made available for use by local schools and community groups. The project, which is scheduled to begin in early 2015 and is expected to take 12 months to complete, has been jointly funded by a $2.5 million contribution from the City of Kingston, $100,000 raised by the club, and $1 million provided by the state government through the Life Saving Victoria. Mr Wells said the redevelopment was “an investment in community safety and will be an asset for more than 550 club members, including over 170 young Nippers, as well as the wider community to enjoy for many years to come”. “The Victorian Coalition government is pleased to contribute $1 million towards the Mordialloc Life Saving Club redevelopment which will revitalise the club’s facilities and replace an aging building that has served the club for almost 60 years,” Mr Wells said. Ms Wreford welcomed the announcement , saying the club had experienced considerable increases in membership and had outgrown its existing building. “Mordialloc is a popular beachside destination with more than 24,000 people visiting the beach last summer alone,” she said. “This funding for the redevelopment is a great outcome for Mordialloc, providing better facilities and better support for lifesavers. “Lifesavers have iconic role in Australia’s beach-

side history, and Mordialloc is part of that proud tradition, having provided vital lifesaving services for the Mordialloc community since 1919.” Kingston mayor Cr Paul Peulich said the council have been working “long and hard” to get the project off the ground. “Our investment of $2.5 million, combined

with $1 million from Life Saving Victoria and the state government means Mordialloc Life Saving Club will have a truly first-class facility that will draw participants and visitors from around Victoria with important flow on benefits to the local economy and community,” Cr Peulich said. Mr Wells also praised efforts of Mordialloc Life

Saving Club in raising $100,000 to towards the project. “This announcement is a great example of the community working with state and local governments to deliver a state-of-the-art facility that will support the club and Mordialloc community well into the future,” Mr Wells said. Chris Brennan

AROUND THE REGION

Why are youngsters dropping the ball? Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au A WORKING party is investigating ways to keep younger footballers playing the game as they grow older. Dropouts among 16- to 20-year-olds are leaving many clubs struggling on the Mornington Peninsula and in Frankston. “There has always been a natural drop-off caused by studies, jobs and an interest in cars, girls and the beach,” AFL South East region general manager Jeremy Bourke said. “We want to make sure clubs make the most of their opportunities and help struggling clubs move forward rather than holding back clubs that are flourishing.” The working party is “reviewing the structure of football through the 16-20-year-old age groups”. Clubs in the region have been invited to join the working party being established by AFL South East. Leagues involved include Peninsula and Nepean football netball leagues, Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League and South East Juniors as well as the Southern Umpires Association. Mr Bourke said under-17 competitions had started this year in the Casey Cardinia league and South East Juniors but similar proposals from Frankston District Junior Football League and for Colts in the Peninsula league had been vetoed by AFL Victoria Country and PCN Sports Alliance. Mr Bourke said the plans would be reviewed by the working party and he was hopeful the Frankston under-17

Game on: Rosebud Junior Football Club has a new under-13 team of girls. The season starts next month, lining up against teams from Mt Eliza, Seaford, Frankston and Langwarrin. There are 28 girls registered to play for the Rosebud team, the first under13s to emerge from the Mornington Junior Football League. Coach Mark Hustwaite said there was “plenty of run out of the middle and tackling” during the team’s practice match on Sunday 30 March. “They can play just as hard as the boys and we can’t wait for the first game and to hear the girls sing the club song.” Pictured with the under-13 team after practice at Rosebud football ground last Thursday are Mr Hustwaite and club president Wayne Thornton. Picture: Yanni

and Colts competitions could begin next year. “As part of the review, issues such as – but not limited to – the suitability of current and potential structures, demographic shifts, club settings and other influences will be considered,”

Mr Bourke stated in a news release. “The review aims to produce recommendations based on detailed analysis and data, which leagues can use to determine the structure that ensures as many young adults within their community remain in the game as possible.

Over the years within our sport, there has been constant dialogue between stakeholders on how to ensure players are not lost through the transition to senior football. “The sustainability of clubs, the dynamics of competitions and the positive

impact on local communities both economically and socially are jeopardised when playing numbers diminish.” Mr Bourke said the review followed “a time of significant focus on youth football in the region over the offseason”.

FEATURE PROPERTY

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Through autumnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golden gown ENSCONCED behind a Cypress Hedge and a feature stone wall incorporating a security gate, this stylish rural retreat is on a picturesque 8096-square metres full of beautiful gum trees. At the end of a quiet country lane, this family home is well-designed with a lovely garden outlook from most windows. A double carport is under the roofline and from the grand entry the home stretches away revealing an expanse of floating timber floors and a pleasant neutral decor. There are two living areas, including space for formal dining, positioned on either side of an alfresco entertaining area. A formal lounge has a striking brick feature wall with gas heater and the central kitchen has a clean, functional look with stainless-steel appliances including a dishwasher and wall oven. There are three bedrooms, all with built-in robes, and the master bedroom has an ensuite with a spa bath. There is a second bathroom and a large laundry. A separate study could be a fourth bedroom if required. The boundary of the property is fully-fenced and other external improvements include a large machinery shed, discreetly hidden behind a tall stand of hedges. The park-like setting that surrounds the home is still maturing, with many smaller trees planted to complement the tall, established gums. It is pleasing to see a quality rural-residential address where neighbours do not encroach too much on each other, so this handsome, ranch-style home should appeal to families seeking some privacy, and the peace and quiet of a rural location.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Ladies in pursuit of beauty, death of elderly Hastings resident Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 11 April 1914 CAN we acquire beauty? This is a question that will touch the heart of every lady reader, and, though it may not be answered to every lady’s entire satisfaction, there is certainly a good deal of interest in knowing how other women have done it or imagine they have. So that “Everylady’s Journal” for April hits upon a lively topic when it gives the views and the portraits of a number of leading women on “How to Be Beautiful.” It seems that beauty of figure is the great consideration rather than the beauty that is skin-deep, and we learn from the ladies who have given their views to “Everylady’s Journal” that beauty of both body and face will follow perfect health. This therefore is the object to aim at, and the means suggested are many and various. Miss De Vere, the sprightly comedienne of “The Dandies,” for example advocates dancing, and says that even the oft condemned Tango has its advantages as a health exercise. Miss Murray, a Scottish champion, votes for swimming. Miss Meryl Waxman says that tennis is the game to make a girl healthy and beautiful. Miss Webb is an ardent supporter of systematic physical culture, and Miss Chris Lorimer advances the opinion that fencing gives a woman a mental poise and a physical beauty far above the average. But the most common sense and practical adviser of all is a Toorak society belle, who declares that no sport or dumb-bell movements known to science can touch plain housework for all round development and healthy exercise.

PAGE 20

There are scores of other interesting and useful contributions to this April issue. The cover indicates the latest notes in fashion, from underwear to millinery. There are articles frivolous, and learned interviews with Darry Lauder and other famous people, and a world of practical information of a household nature. No better sixpenny magazine, foreign or home-grown, has yet appeared on the market than “Everylady’s Journal.” *** IT is with regret that we announce the death of Mr William Bryant who passed away last Saturday at the age of 66 years. Mr Bryant was one of the oldest residents of Hastings, having resided here for 52 years. He leaves a widow, five daughters, and four sons. *** WE beg to draw attention to the Commonwealth of Australia’s notice which appears in this issue re. enrolment on the Electoral rolls of the State of Victoria. *** MISS Emily Meredith, dentist, notifies in another column, that owing to illness in the family, she will be unable to practice at Frankston until further notice. A meeting of all interested in the proposed Baxter Flat Race Course, will be held in the Mechanics’ hall on Tuesday evening next. A good attendance is requested. *** WEST’S Orchestra visited the engineers camp at Langwarrin on Sunday, and during the afternoon rendered a fine programme of selections. On Sunday night the orchestra gave a concert in the hall, which was crowded. The thoughtfulness of the

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 9 April 2014

members of the orchestra in this making a welcome diversion by the camp routine, was much appreciated. ***

As some of the older players of the [Hastings Football Club] team are retiring, it behoves the younger players to make a strenuous effort to keep their colours where they ought to be – on “top”

MR W. J. Wardle’s Amli Sparkle secured the open championship at the Victorian Bull Dogs Club’s annual show at Olympia, on Saturday. In addition to carrying off the challenge prize for the champion dog, he obtained first honours in the sections for junior dogs and colonial breeds. Amli Sparkle, which is 15 months old, was bred by Mr J. R. Watson, of

Frankston, who also bred the champion bitch at the same show. *** WE would remind our readers of the sale of gifts to be held in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall, on Easter Monday afternoon and evening, in aid of the permanent endowment of the Frankston Girls’ Cot at the Convalescent Home. The function will be opened at 3 o’clock by Mrs Jas Grice, ‘Moondah.’ Besides the sale of gifts there will be numerous other attractions, and the local band will enliven proceedings by rendering some of their favourite selections. *** THE annual meeting of the Hastings Football Club was held on Friday evening last, Mr J. D. Hodgins occupying the chair. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. The chairman in a neat speech congratulated the players on their fine, clean and honest football played last year, and having gone right through the season without a defeat. The election of officers for the ensuing year resulted as follows:President, Mr J. D. Hodgins; Vice Presidents, Messrs Latchford, A. Campbell, A. T; Denham; Patrons, Messrs R. Campbell, J. L. Parkes, G. Keast ; Secretary and Treasurer, Mr H. Kerr; General Committee, Messrs A. Boulter, B; Francis, P. Slattery. Match Committee, Messrs J. D. Hodgins, H. Kerr, A. McDonald Moffett and Francis. Delagates, Messrs J. D. Hodgins and Francis. Auditors, Messrs A, Campbell and P. Ryan. A good deal of discussion took place as regards the annual meeting of the delegates falling on the same night as

their meeting, also that the secretary was only notified two nights previously. Moved and seconded, that the members tickets be the same price as last year, 2s 6d. It was agreed to stick to the good old “Blue and White” colours which has carried off so many premierships without a break. Moved and seconded, that the secretary write to the secretary of the Mornington Peninsula Football Association, giving the reason why they were not represented at the annual meeting, also expressing their wishes to join the association. As some of the older players of the team are retiring, it behoves the younger players to make a strenuous effort to keep their colours where they ought to be - on the “top.” The Trustees of the cemetery motored there on Sunday last to inspect and see as to the advisability of repairs required, new fences, gates, doing up the paths, and putting everything in respectable order. This has long been an eye-sore to the general public, and we are pleased to see such capable men have been elected to the position. *** MR Mace of Trinity College, preached his first sermon at Hastings on Sunday last. This gentleman who has taken the place of Mr Thompson, will assist Mr Eva in his many Sunday services. Judging by the way in which he held the congregation’s attention, he will no doubt be a great acquisition to Hastings Trinity Church. Skating was in full swing last Saturday night, a number of skaters practicing for the grand carnival to be held next Saturday night for which splendid prizes are offered.

Arise, sir knights of the new republic By Stuart McCullough FINALLY! Knighthoods are back and I, for one, am beside myself with excitement. I almost have to pinch myself – an act that being beside myself makes a whole lot simpler. Clearly, someone has been getting my letters, emails and scrolls sent by carrier pigeon. For too long, this country has been without the crowning glories that are ‘Sir’ or ‘Dame’; ever since Prime Minister Bob Hawke abolished the honours in 1986 in favour of the title, ‘Maaaate’. It’s time to set the record straight. Or, to put it more accurately: it’s time to set the record straight. There are lots of reasons to celebrate the return of knighthoods, not least of which is the reintroduction of jousting as a mainstream sport. For too long, kids have had to waste their Saturday mornings playing football, netball and cricket when, instead, they should be strapping on their armour and taking the family horse out for a vigorous bout of jousting. It’s been yonks since I’ve taken the jousting sticks out. And with armour being the must-have fashion item in 2014, the term ‘throwing down the gauntlet’ will no longer be a mere turn of phrase as ordinary citizens peel off their metal gloves and cast them groundward, before challenging someone to a duel. This nation has long been iron deficient and only a return to full body armour can fix it. As a child, I longed to be knighted. If chances didn’t look good, I was going to change my name from ‘Stuart’ to ‘Sir Stuart’. This would work vastly improve my chances of getting

an upgrade when next I fly. But such a bold move carries with it the risk that I might actually receive one of these honours on merit (if not by clerical error) and be stuck with ‘Sir Sir Stuart’. Granted, Boutros Boutros-Ghali got away with it but, as pop group Duran Duran proved, having a built-

in stutter for a name makes you look like an idiot. But just like ‘Major Major’ in Joseph Heller’s masterpiece Catch-22, I’ll get over it. It also means that the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific can now be performed in full and exactly as the authors intended. For

too long, the musical centrepiece of the show has been mutilated to reflect prevailing cultural standards. I look forward to hearing There Is Nothing Like A Dame in all its full-throated glory. No one could dispute that it’s far more catchy and enjoyable than the politically correct version: There Is Nothing Like an Order of Australia Bestowed for Services to the Community. If nothing else, it ruins the rhythm of the thing entirely. The song Knights In White Satin by The Moody Blues will finally mean something, to say nothing of Cole Porter’s Knight and Day. Turns of phrase that are an indelible part of our cultural make up – like ‘white knight’, ‘knight in shining armour’ and, most crucially of all, Knight Rider – can be restored as freely used as part of the national lexicon. It will boost the fortunes of the chain maille industry almost overnight. Forget Parliament House – our nation’s leaders will congregate at a venue more fitting: Kryal Castle. I realise that not everyone feels the way I do. Some have cruelly labelled it a ‘retrograde’ step without pausing to think of the benefits. It’s clear that these honours will only be given out to the truly exceptional and not, as was the case in Queensland throughout the seventies, given away free with boxes of Cocoa Pops. This is, of course, a two-edged sword, much like the one Her Majesty will use to confer the honour itself. I quite like the idea that anyone has a shot of qualifying. Just as our Olympic team should be selected through a barrel draw, so too should knighthoods.

Some people think it cruels any chance of ever becoming a republic but those people are flat-out wrong. My favourite knight isn’t Australian or even British – he’s American. Kennedys and Kardashians aside, they don’t even have a royal family. Sir Mix-A-Lot was, presumably, knighted for his services to rap music and, possibly, body image. Granted, not everyone appreciates the sentiments expressed in his song, Baby’s Got Back, but I tend to defer to medical experts, like Dr Dre, on such things. Given his status as a knight of the realm, it is only appropriate that any ceremony to confer a knighthood be supplied with a soundtrack from MixA-Lot. It’s ironic, of course (and I’m not just talking about the armour). Those people who want to avoid the return to knighthoods as part of our honour system now have the perfect excuse to isolate themselves by building a moat. Normally, I’d write these articles at my desk, seated behind a computer. Not today. To mark the return to sanity that is the reintroduction of knighthoods, I am writing this whilst sitting astride my mighty stead, who I have named ‘Sir Hoofalot’ and am using the finest quill in my collection. Having attached this epistle to the nearest pigeon, I shall await news from the Kingdom. It’s late now, and I should probably get off my horse and get some sleep. So let me say to republican and monarchist, peer and commoner, nobleman and serf alike: good knight to you all. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

The extended process of negotiating the transition to Greenways was not without its problems, and it served to confirm what I sensed: that here was a community of supportive, interdependent people,where respect, acceptance, support, stimulation and encouragement were the norm, and extended to and by everyone.

Performance CHRISSIE Hynde was heavily influenced by US soul singers and started practising on a baritone ukulele before picking up a guitar and playing in a band with Devo keyboardist Mark Mothersbaugh. Hynde spent three years studying art at Kent State University before taking up modelling. She joined a variety of groups including Jack Rabbit with Chris Spedding, Berk Brothers and then was invited by Spedding to do backing vocals on his solo album Hurt. Hynde put together her first band in 1978 with Pete Farndon (Bass), Martin Chambers (Drums) and James Honeyman-Scott on guitar. The group, then still nameless, recorded Ray Davies’ Stop Your Sobbing, produced by Nick Lowe. Hynde settled on the name The Pretenders, inspired by The Platters hit The Great Pretender. In October 79, The Pretenders released Brass in Pocket written by Hyde/Honeyman-Scott and the single hit No.1 on the UK charts. The following year Hynde met her hero Ray Davies and they began a 3-year relationship. In June 1982, shortly after playing two gigs with The Beach Boys on a US tour, James Honeyman-Scott died following a period of cocaine and heroin addiction. But on a good note, the Hynde composition Back on the Chain Gang climbed into the US Top 10 (1983) and was used in the Robert De Niro film The King of Comedy. The band hired a new guitarist, Robbie McIntosh (ex-Manfred Mann) and bass player, Malcolm Foster. Later that year, former Pretenders bass player Pete Farndon died of a drug overdose and Hynde gave birth to her daughter, Natalie HyndeDavies. Hynde and Davies later split and Hynde married Simple Minds singer Jim Kerr and they had a daughter, Yasmin. In 1985 UB40 invited Hynde to covocal a revival of Sony & Cher’s hit I Got You Babe which became a Top 30 hit. In 1997, Hynde married Colombian sculptor Lucho Brieva in London, but the marriage only lasted for five years. Chrissie Hynde will release her first ever solo album Stockholm on 6 June.

Yusuf - Roadsinger Live in Australia is available for $9.95 plus $3 postage. When Yusuf last toured Australia, 36 years ago, it was as the enigmatic Cat Stevens, a powerful and evocative singer-songwriter who brought the world Moonshadow, Peace Train, Wild World, Morning Has Broken and other classic folk-pop hits. Born Steven Georgiou in London in 1947, he was discovered by former The Springfields member, now record producer Mike Hurst who arranged for Yusuf (Cat) to attend a recording session where the student recorded his song I Love My Dog. Tony Hall of Decca Records signed him to the new Deram Label under the name Cat Stevens. In November 1966 I Love My Dog hit no.28 on the UK charts. In February 1967, the highly comRecorded at Ingrid Studios in Stockholm with co-writer, guitarist and producer Bjorn Yttling, the album features cameos from Neil Young and tennis legend John McEnroe. The album, featuring 11 tracks, includes the first single Dark Sunglasses, which will be released on 24 April. Dark Sunglasses was premiered on Radio 2 in the UK and is now receiving its first plays worldwide. Summing up her aims with the album, Hynde said: “I wanted to make a power pop album you could dance to – Abba meets John Lennon”. www.thepretenders.com *** The Rolling Stones may have postponed their Australian tour but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on seeing their songs live. Like the saying goes, better late than never, especially when it comes to celebrating milestones. In a belated commemoration of the 45th anniversary of The Rolling Stones’ 1968 classic

album Beggars Banquet, a one-off allstar local band are coming together to perform the record, track-by-track at the Flying Saucer Club on Easter Saturday 19 April with doors opening at 8pm. Carl Treasure, Simon Aarons, Ben Curnow, Ryan Brown, Bruce Haymes and Harmonica Rob, as well as guest vocalists Pat Carmody, Dave Bowers and Talei Wolfgramm are banding together to belt out this epic album. Hear songs such as Sympathy for the Devil, Street Fighting Man, Stray Cat Blues, Salt of the Earth, No Expectations and more. Don’t miss duo Taylor and Brown opening the night with an acoustic set of overlooked Stones gems. If you ever needed an excuse to pay tribute to The Rolling Stones (yeah, right) then this is the night for you and an absolute must-see for all the true fans out there. The Beggars Banquet 45th anniversay performance will begin at 8.40pm (doors open 8pm) on Saturday 19 April

*** TESTING drivers aged over 70? I drove to the airport and returned during nonpeak; 90 minutes both ways. I probably broke the speed limit 10 times by 1-4 kilometres per hour due to various factors and was passed some 200 times by trucks and cars, most speeding, some ratbags, and some male and female Pplaters of all ages. The television news used an accident by an 82-year-old female in Queensland to highlight the case, ignoring the other thousand accidents on that day. A nonsense. *** MAYBE it’s me? Over the years friends and acquaintances have enthused about an intended few days camping trip on or near the banks of the Murray River. Men only. Have a few drinks, a spot of fishing. Wacko-the-Diddle-oh! When they returned they always had a ball; no matter the rain or the fish not biting. “So what did you do?” I would ask. “Sat around, talked, had a few beers, a few laughs, got the barbie fired up.” Secret men’s business? *** THE possible connection of Liberal assistant treasurer Arthur Sinodinos with Labor crook Eddie Obeid on page 5 of

the Herald Sun? Arthur’s connection with Eddie (or otherwise) is of no consequence to me, but one has to admire the outrage from his followers. Arthur’s mate (Joe Hockey) paid back the $33,000 donated by the Obeidlinked Australian Water Holdings. I expected no less from Joe and his Liberal mates, or, as I like to call them “the good guys”. I suspect Labor has nothing against Arthur. Maybe like those chaps on the Murray River fishing. *** CUTTING out red tape is all very well, but changing consumer protection laws putting people into the tentacles of some untrustworthy financial advisers stinks. Neutral advice is in danger of being replaced by vested interest; lambs to the slaughter. *** IF consensual sex results in pregnancy I figure they should take the consequences, including child maintenance by the father. However, abortion as a result of rape or incest is surely a right. Like most, I’ve come across people and friends who chose out of convenience. I disagree mostly, but it’s their decision; end of story. It’s the politicians speaking out from a platform of pseudo-

mercial orchestrally arranged Matthew and Son hits the UK no.2 spot behind the Monkees I’m a Believer. Jamaican singer Jimmy Cliff recorded a cover of the Stevens song Wild World and gifted him a UK Top 10 hit. In 1971, Wild World became Cat Stevens’ US debut reaching no.11, while the album Tea For the Tillerman hit reached no.8 and remained on the album charts for 79 weeks. His next album Teaser and the Firecat remained in the UK charts for 93 weeks and the US charts for 67 weeks. A flood of US hits followed, including Peace Train (no.7) and Morning Has Broken (no.6).

A Grain of Salt CANBERRA, also known as Lollipop Land, is where racial discrimination changes and the people it affects are forgotten, and the ratbag name callers couldn’t give a monkey’s uncle. Sir Johnny Howard suggests he does not want the changes? Tony and the IPA rule the roost. We get what we vote for and then some, both sides. Let us hope Pinochet is not one of Tony’s mentors. Fun and games. Billy Boy Shorten’s a bit stiff, or without courage? He can’t come out criticising Dame Quentin Bryce for accepting a royal title, on the basis that family is family. On the other hand, why not? *** ABOVE reproach Planning Minister Matthew Guy’s decision to approve the twin service stations in a green wedge zone surprises no-one. Some things are inevitable.

Kangas jump Bulls in season opener PENINSULA LEAGUE By Toe Punt LANGWARRIN achieved something it has been unable to do for years on Saturday when it beat Karingal. There is a fierce rivalry between the two clubs and in round one of the Peninsula League season, the Kangas were able to get their season away to a flier. Despite missing a few of their recruits, including Matt Dimkos and Rikki Johnson, the Kangas got away to a great start and led by 31 points at quarter time. By half-time, the margin was out

to 39 points and the Bulls had been restricted to just one goal. It was a case of spot the original player for Karingal, given the fact it lost about 14 regular senior players in the off season. Michael Burke and Grant Paxton were the Bulls best. Jimmy Johnson was a headache for the opposition, kicking four goals for the Kangaroos, while Andrew Withers dominated. Under-18 league medallist Blake Harkness was among his side’s best also in his first senior game, while Stevey O’Brien turned back the clock

Anthony Barry was also at his best. Billy Humphrey was among the best players for the Pythons, as was Adam Maling and Jimmy Messina. Bonbeach, still reeling from the missed opportunity last season, came out firing against Seaford on Saturday. After a tight first quarter, the Sharks booted 17 goals to five after the break to run out 20.10-130 to 7.10-52 winners. Daniel Smith has been an unheralded champion of this competition for a long time and he was best-on-ground with four goals. Anthony Raso kicked three majors,

and played an outstanding game. New coach Gavin Artico would have been impressed with his sides’ 14.14-98 to 4.6-30 victory. He would have been particularly impressed with the team’s defensive efforts. Frankston YCW smashed Pines on Saturday, winning 22.11-143 to 9.3-57. The Stonecats really haven’t seen the best of Ricky Morris for a while but he turned it on Saturday, kicking eight goals in a best-on-ground performance. Stuart Macleod took a while to get going last season after a knee injury but was superb for the Stonecats, and

Jason Ferraro had a heap of the footy, and Mark Tyrell and Justin Norton were dominant. The Tigers lacked fight after quarter time, restricted to just five goals in three quarters of football. Dylan Sloan was the Tigers’ only multiple goal-kicker, finishing with two. Nick Pettitt, who has been missing from footy for a while, was among his side’s best, as was Luke Smith. The two Sunday games, Mornington v Mt Eliza and Edithvale-Aspendale v Chelsea were decided after The News went to press.

Long year ahead for Yabbies as Blues win NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt TYABB Football Club, the Yabbies, is in for a long season if its performance in the opening round of the Nepean League 2014 season is any indication. Tyabb was thrashed by neighbour Hastings, scoring just one goal in the opening half and finishing with three for the match. While the Blues dominated every quarter, it was hard to gauge how good the performance actually was, given the lacklustre opposition. The Blues easily won the match, 23.19-157 to 3.927. There is little doubt Hastings is expected to be a major improver this season and its 42 scoring shots to 12 against Tyabb gave some indication. The Blues will finish in the top three. Colin McVeigh is a star and kicked off the season for Hastings with six majors, while new coach Brendan Dunne had a significant impact. Daniel Wishart had an average season last year but was back to his best on the weekend. Dylan Hand shopped himself around in the off season but stayed in the Blues colours and finished with three goals, as did Luke Hewitt and recruit Dan Noble. Everyone was excited to see how Justin Berry would perform and he didn’t disappoint, getting plenty of the footy and finishing with two goals. Grant Masterson was also back after a year in the wilderness and finished with a couple of majors. Tyabb skipper Ethan Rahilly was at his best once again, finishing with a goal, as did Stephen Porter, who was the Yabbies’ best. Red Hill proved that it, too, is going to be a rapid improver in 2014 after smashing Somerville. After a relatively even first half, the Hillmen opened up in the second hour and kicked 13 goals to three to run out 20.10-130 to 7.10-52 winners. Jarryd Douglas is a young star and booted five goals,

while Jarred Eames finished with three. Michael Dillon was the big recruit from Port Melbourne and he showed his class in his first match, while Luke Adams played some of the best football we have seen from him in seasons. Paul Wintle and Blake McCormack made an impression in their first match in new colours after crossing from Frankston YCW, and old stager Harry Larwill was at his finest. The most pleasing thing for new coach Tony Blackford would have been the fact that his team had 11 individual goal-kickers. It was a tough day at the office for new Eagles coach and former Karingal star David Hirst. His side was completely outclassed and it could be a tough season for the Eagles. Lee Martin was good for them, as was former Bull Kane McKenzie. Devon Meadows may have finished on the bottom of the ladder last season but it is sure to improve in 2014. On Saturday in the season opener, Devon came from 23 points down at three-quarter time to beat Pearcedale. Devon booted six goals to one in the final term to win 12.7-79 to 10.10-70. Shane McInnes was on fire for the red, white and black while Jesse Dehey made a welcome return. Pat Heijden booted four majors for the Tractors, while Ben Mitchell was a soldier in the ruck. Some pundits expected Frankston Bombers to slide this season and if its performance against Crib Point is any indication, the prediction might come true. The Bombers were thrashed by the Pies, 19.13-127 to 6.6-42. Brad Davidson booted six goals for Crib Point, and Wade Symes and David Cook dominated. Jeremy Waixel was the best of the Bombers, along with Duncan Proud and Ben Simmons. The round one matches Rosebud versus Rye and Dromana versus Sorrento will be played on Good Friday and Easter Saturday respectively.

CHELSEA MORDIALLOC MENTONE NEWS scoreboard

Pretty in pink The Mornington Peninsula Hockey Club held their 2nd annual “Hockey Goes Pink” fundraiser in support of the McGrath Foundation on Sunday 30 March. The combined womens teams donned pink socks to take on the Bayside Cougars in two matches on the day. Players ranged in age from 11 to in their 60’s. All players donated to the fundraising effort and Monash University Frankston Campus donated the use of the field for the day. Afternoon tea was a treat of goodies supplied by the players, and a silent auction and raffle was held. The men were not to be left out, with some of the mens team running the barbeque, resplendent in their pink aprons. The day was a huge success, with $2300 raised. Donations can be made to the McGrath Foundation at www.mcgrathfoundation.com.au. Pictures: Andrew Hurst
