Election ‘bully’ ruckus By Jo Winterbottom A LIBERAL state upper house MP again faces accusations of attempting to interfere in local government after using parliamentary privilege to air allegations of bullying at Kingston Council. South Eastern Metropolitan MP Inga Peulich named three Kingston councillors currently the subject of a confidential investigation into allegations of bullying made by a senior officer at

the council. Her comments have been used in election material distributed by council candidates including Justin Scott, a Liberal Party member who is running in South Ward, in the lead up to council elections later this month. Retiring Kingston councillor Arthur Athanasopoulos, said Mrs Peulich’s comments were the latest salvo in the “the schemes of the Peulich family” to disrupt the council. “This is the most cynical attack on

b

council I have ever seen,” he said. “I have served four terms as both a councillor and mayor and not until this term have I ever seen such blatant attacks on individuals. “The timing of this attack in parliament could not have been more malicious or cunning. “It’s obvious to Blind Freddy that they are behind all the innuendo, schemes and disruptions to council getting on with the business of govern-

The timing of Mrs Peulich’s comments was also questioned by John Lenders, the leader of the Opposition in the Legistlative Council. “Mrs Peulich’s son is running for election to Kingston City Council and she is using this opportunity in cowards’ castle to read on the record criticisms that undermine the people her son is running against,” Mr Lenders said.

ing their citizens.” The bullying allegations were raised in a question to CEO John Nevins at the last Kingston Council meeting on 24 September. The question, which called for councillors to “declare he or she is not the subject of the allegation”, was from Geoff Gledhill, a candidate in Central Ward. Mr Gledhill is a Liberal Party member and chairman of Liberal Party fundraising arm Business First.

Dive search: A police diver trawls Mordialloc Creek looking for a dumped wheelie bin that allegedly contained a murdered man’s body. Pictures: Neil Walker

Police search for body of evidence By Jo Winterbottom POLICE divers returned to Mordialloc Creek on Tuesday 9 October to search for evidence in the murder of 30-yearold Camberwell man Adam Troy Williams. Homicide squad detectives are still looking for the wheelie bin in which they believe Mr Williams’ body was disposed after he was allegedly murdered in St Kilda last December. They believe it could provide evi-

dence for the trial of three men charged with his murder and a further two men and a women charged with accessory to murder. It was not found during the search on Tuesday 9 October. The City of Port Phillip bin with Mr Williams’ remains was allegedly left beside Mordialloc Creek about 2 January and police believe it was moved during the Clean Up Australia campaign between Sunday 4 and Tuesday 6 March.

Clean up volunteers placed the bin in a carpark off Governor Rd on the northern side of the creek and it was emptied into a Kingston Council rubbish truck a few weeks later. Adam Williams’ remains are believed to be in the Clayton South Regional Landfill, but police said there would be no search of the tip. A police spokeswoman said: “Due to the size of the landfill site, the length of time since the disposal and the lim-

Council ‘bullying’ claims aired Continued from page 1 Paul Peulich is seeking re-election to Kingston Council in North Ward, where he is up against Cr Steve Staikos, an Australian Labor Party member, one of the people named by Mrs Peulich. The other two councillors named were Rosemary West (Central Ward) and Trevor Shewan (South Ward). All three are known for their support of protecting the green wedge from further development, a stance which often finds them on the opposite side of the debate to Cr Peulich. “It is no accident that these false accusations and Mr Scott’s flier are aimed at the three councillors who most strongly support protecting Kingston’s green wedge,” Cr Shewan said. Mrs Peulich’s speech in parliament

on Wednesday 10 October was made in the section of debate reserved for “statements on reports and papers”. She began by referring to the annual report of the Department of Planning of Community Development and had mentioned the bullying allegations at Kingston by the end of the first paragraph of her speech. Later the same day she again spoke on the matter, claiming it could cost the council $1.2 million in costs if the allegations were proven. Legislative Council president Bruce Atkinson drew members’ attention to what he described as two “matters of concern” regarding Mrs Peulich’s speeches. “I accept that there has been a complaint, but it is a complaint by way of allegation, the result of which is yet to

be determined,” he said. He also questioned Mrs Peulich’s claims on costs. “I’m not sure that that can be speculated upon at this point,” he said. Mrs Peulich faced accusations of interfering in local government in July 2010 when Mr Lenders, then treasurer in the Brumby Government, said her office had provided Cr Peulich with the wording of motions he put to council. Cr Peulich was employed as an electorate officer in his mother’s office before entering local government. The Local Government Act was amended in 2009 to prohibit councillors from holding employment with a member of parliament. Cr Peulich did not return calls from The News.

ited information available as to where the actual disposal site was, police do not believe a search would uncover the body of Mr Williams.” Search and rescue squad divers searched the creek last month and set up an information caravan in Attenborough Park in an effort to gather further information about the bin. “Detectives would like to advise that any information received in relation to the bin will remain confidential

and would like to stress that anyone who may have removed the bin from the area has nothing to fear from contacting the police,” the spokeswoman said. The six people charged in relation to Mr Williams murder will appear in Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 20 December. Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or www.crimestoppers.com.au

Going postal for council election BALLOT packs have been mailed out to households for the City of Kingston council election. A large field of 52 candidates are competing for nine seats on Kingston Council. The city’s three wards - Central Ward, South Ward and North Ward are represented by three councillors each. All sitting councillors, apart from North Ward councillor Arthur Athanasopoulos who is retiring after 12 years’ service, have put themselves forward for a further four-year term on council.

Council elections are managed by the Victorian Electoral Commission. The election office for Kingston City Council is located at Level 5, 1230 Nepean Highway, Cheltenham and is open to the public and candidates. The Returning Officer for the Kingston City Council general election is Peter Cole. The contact number for the election office is 03 9583 6224. Completed ballots must be posted to the returning officer by 6pm on Friday 26 October.

Novel idea leads to PhD for writer By Jo Winterbottom A CHANCE meeting in outback western Queensland became the inspiration for Glenice Whitting to complete a PhD at the age of 71. It is the culmination of a learning journey which began 21 years ago for Dr Whitting, a long-time resident of Patterson Lakes. “My son graduated from university and I thought, ‘Gee, I left school at 14, there’s a big difference here’,” she remembered. Though she was happy working as a hairdresser, she enrolled at a TAFE college to study the VCE and has never stopped studying since. TAFE studies in professional and creative writing came next, then an arts degree, followed by a Master of Arts and now a PhD. “Two women, two countries, one dream,” is how she described the novel she has written for her PhD thesis, which also explores how women record and share their stories through oral stories, personal letters, emails and journals. Hens Lay, People Lie is a fictional story based around Dr Whitting’s penfriendship with Mickey, a poet from the United States whom she met while on an outback camping trip 35 years ago. The letters of that relationship formed the basis of the book and led Dr Whitting to explore how “imaginative writing with factual material” has traditionally been a “safe space” for women to tell their stories and share knowledge. “In this space, women find their own creative voice, write their stories and

understand themselves,” she said. “I look at the letters that I wrote to Mickey as my apprenticeship as a writer. She was very well educated and had travelled the world and it inspired me to start experimenting.” Dr Whitting’s first novel, Pickle to Pie, is about a grandson of German immigrants growing up in Footscray during the 1900s. It was shortlisted for the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards. Based on her father’s life and the experiences of her German-Australian relatives during and after World War II, the ideas for the story grew from family secrets and silences that she became aware of as an adult. “Writing was a terrific way for me to work through my German ancestry,” Dr Whitting said. “Dad didn’t tell us his story, so I was writing his story for my kids. Writing is fabulous way to work through issues; I felt an incredible freedom after I had written that story.” Having told her father’s story, she turned to her own in Hens Lay, People Lie, a working title for the book, which is yet to be published. Based on fact and extensive research in Australia and the US, it is a fictionalised account. “Life’s stories can be boring for those not involved in them,” Dr Whitting admitted. “You take the nucleus of the facts of your life and then you have fun and play with it.‘What if this happened’ is the question I often ask. I killed myself off in my first book; that was fun.” Glenice Whitting’s output includes scripts, blogging, short stories and an ebook called Inspiring Women, written under the pen name Penny White.

She is a member of three writing groups, including the Mordialloc Writers, and has worn the keys off several computers given to her by her son Paul, an IT engineer who assisted her with IT requirements and buckets of encouragement. He is planning a graduation party for his mum. “From VCE to PhD is a like marathon run - it’s your support team that gets you through,” Dr Whitting said. “When you leave school at 14, you doubt whether you have the ability to do this. It’s just one step at a time and then another opportunity presents and it scares you, but you give it a go. Whenever I have thought, ‘I can’t do this’, something has always happened to help me do it.” Little encouragements along the way help; such as being invited to join the Golden Key International Honour Society, an elite group for top ranking students to which Dr Whitting was admitted at the completion of her undergraduate studies. “That’s one of the things that gave me the confidence to continue,” she said. It also helped her win a scholarship to pay for the expenses of her PhD studies. “It gave me some financial freedom; for once in my life my writing was not a drain on the family finances,” she said. After four years of full-time study, including regular 3am starts to fit in writing work around other commitments, Dr Whitting has declined offers to teach at university and is looking forward to reading for pleasure and perhaps teaching at a community house.

She is excited by new media – emails are “brilliant” and text messages are “like little postcards”. Her advice for aspiring writers is to keep a journal. “Just grab an ordinary exercise book

and when you get an idea or memory, just right it down, don’t worry what it sounds like,” she said. “I never intended to do this [complete a PhD], it was always just one step at a time.”

Sun’s activity makes for awesome auroras By Mike Hast LONG, cold nights perched behind a camera on a Flinders beach have paid off spectacularly for Seaford photo­ grapher Steven Kuiter. Mr Kuiter, 31, captured images of the Southern Aurora, also known as Aurora Australis, on the evening of Monday 8 October and the results are causing a stir on the internet, where he and his photography mates try to outdo each other with their experimental photos. The former Patterson River secon­ dary student, who says he failed photo­graphy because he was “no good at the written side”, may have bragging rights for a few weeks. Mr Kuiter has spent many nights at Flinders this year seeking to capture the elusive aurora in a year where the Sun has been producing powerful coronal mass ejections (CMEs). Auroras are created when energetic charged particles from the Sun collide with the Earth’s the high altitude at­ mos­phere. Next year will be even more spec­ tacular when the Sun reaches the peak output of an 11-year cycle. People are surprised when shown photos of the Southern Aurora, Mr Kuiter says. “I didn’t know you could capture auroras from Australia; I thought you had to go to Antarctica,” is a common reaction. Most associate images of auroras

with the northern hemisphere, where far more people live closer to the North Pole in countries like Finland, Sweden, Norway, Russia and Canada. Mr Kuiter receives text alerts about expected CMEs and heads down to Flinders, the best location in the region for night sky photography. It’s dark because of few street and house lights, and the beach beside the golf

course faces due south to Bass Strait. On the Monday night he arrived at a spot near West Head at about 9pm and the picture on this page was taken about 10pm. The skywatchers stayed till 3am. Mr Kuiter said he and his friends have thought about jumping on a plane to Tasmania “but there’s no guarantee of the aurora making an appearance”.

Youth to be silenced

“You could spend many weeks in a place like Finland and not see the Northern Aurora,” he said, although going to northern Europe is an am­ bition. Mr Kuiter also photographs wildlife and it’s not hard to understand why – his father Rudi Kuiter is a renowned underwater photographer and his mother Alison Kuiter is well known for her images of terrestrial nature. Her work has featured in newspapers, magazines and calendars. Mother and son had photos of ducks published on promotional material for an Australia Post series of bird stamps earlier this year. Mr Kuiter took photos of Lead­ beater’s possum in disputed logging areas in central Victoria this year, sometimes standing or sitting for hours to catch the rare and elusive animal, the state’s threatened faunal emblem. The same patience, determination and technical skill is needed to capture a possum as the Southern Aurora. n  For the technically-minded, Mr Kuiter used small format Nikon cameras – a D300s and D7000 – 35mm and 11-16mm lenses, and 30 second exposures. He shoots long exposures on cloudless nights to get the star trail effect.

The International Youth Silent Film Festival is coming to Kingston. The festival, first held in the US, is a chance for filmmakers aged under 20 to create a modern version of a silent film and see it on the big screen with live organ accompaniment. Submissions will open soon and the deadline is 9 September 2013. Screenings and the award night will take place at Kingston City Hall in Moorabbin on 19 October 2013. Finalists from the Victoria regionals will compete with global finalists for the International Prize to be awarded during the International Awards Ceremony and Screening held at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, Oregon in the US in June 2014. Festival president Jon ‘JP’ Palanuk said the Kingston City Hall was a perfect fit for the festival’s global expansion. “The City of Kingston competition marks the continued growth of the festival in Australia, and I look forward to travelling to the region to see firsthand what the Aussies will create.” Kingston City Council CEO John Nevins said the event would be a wonderful opportunity for the city. “With renowned organist Nathan Avakian set to play the film scores live, Kingston has an exciting opportunity to put the Mighty Wurlitzer organ at the Arts Centre on the map,” he said.

Safety check your boat With over 1,000 recreational boating breakdowns in 2011-12, Transport Safety Victoria (TSV) is urging boaters across the state to think about safety and be well prepared before hitting the water this season. TSV’s Director of Maritime Safety, Peter Corcoran, said boaters should take time to ensure they are well equipped to deal with any safety risks. “There are almost 290,000 marine licence holders in Victoria and every licence carries a responsibility for safety. “Preparation is vital to ensuring that you return home safely after a boating trip, especially if it’s been a while since your boat was last used. “This includes ensuring that your vessel’s motor is in good order by having it checked over by a qualified mechanic. “Old fuel can cause damage to expensive marine engines and result in breakdowns on the water. If you haven’t used your boat since last season, fuel should be replaced. “TSV incident data reveals that of the 1,000 recreational boat disable-

ments in 2011-12, all required an urgent response or assistance. “If you require urgent assistance, you should call triple zero (000) immediately,” Mr Corcoran emphasised. If going boating: n have a well-maintained and safe vessel n carry a life jacket for each person on board and know when they will need to wear one n have the right safety equipment and that it is in good working order n  check the weather conditions at www.bom.gov.au n have enough fuel for your trip n tell someone where you will launch from, where you are going and when you expect to return. The Marine Safety Act 2010 (Vic) took effect on 1 July 2012 and under the Act recreational boaters have a greater responsibility for safety. The Victorian Recreational Boating Handbook can be downloaded from the TSV website at www.transportsafety.vic.gov.au/recreational-boatingsafety-handbook or pick up a copy from a VicRoads office.

Radio broadcast alarmed the world

IN an Australian radio first, the peninsula’s community station RPP-FM will recreate the legendary War of the Worlds radio broadcast on Halloween, Wednesday 31 October. One of the stars of the 1953 movie, Ann Robinson, is helping promote the RPP broadcast and will be interviewed on RPP’s Friday on My Mind program, hosted by Chelsea resident Phil Wall and John Wells. The crew will also talk with a resident of Grovers Mill, the town in New Jersey in which the radio play was set, who runs a War of the Worlds theme café. On Sunday 30 October 1938, millions of American radio listeners were shocked when radio news alerts announced the arrival of Martians. They panicked when they heard about the Martians’ ferocious and seem­ ingly unstoppable attack on Earth. Many ran from their homes screaming and others packed up their cars and fled. What listeners heard was a portion of Orson Welles’s adaptation of the book War of the Worlds by H G Wells. This was before television – radio was the main form of entertainment with millions of people sitting around their radios listening to drama, comedy and music shows. Seventy-four years after the Halloween blockbuster sent shock waves across America and the world, RPP-FM will faithfully recreate the historic radio drama. The show will be a special event from the Friday on My Mind team, who earlier this year presented a Cop Shop reunion show. “The Halloween broadcast will be amazing,” Phil Wall said. “It will be in front of a live audience in the station’s BlueScope performance studio and we have a great director in Colin Budds as

well as John Orcsik and his team from The Australian Film and Television Academy. “We’ll be joined live from Hollywood by Ann Robinson, the female lead in the original 1953 Paramount Pictures movie version of the story. “It will be incredible having Ann on the show. She was a member of one of the most iconic War of the Worlds episodes,” John Wells said. Ann Robinson was a stunt horse rider and then actor whose first leading role was as Sylvia Van Buren in the War of the Worlds.

Protest over water HQ By Jo Winterbottom THE manager of Frankston’s Landmark building, tenants and environment groups have joined forces to protest the proposed 10-storey South East Water headquarters beside Kananook Creek. The meeting was organised and chaired by David Minty of CBRE, the company that manages Landmark, Frankston’s premier office building, which looks set to be dwarfed by the water authority’s HQ to be built on a car park between Playne and Wells streets. Tenants of the five-storey Landmark will lose Port Phillip views and access to car parking, but Mr Minty played down suggestions the property could be significantly devalued. “My clients’ concerns are the impact it will have on the foreshore, the gross overdevelopment of the site and the reduction in public carparking,” he said after the meeting. He would not disclose the estimated value of the Landmark build-

ing or its owner. Along with about 20 people at the meeting, he accused Frankston Council of “secrecy” in its dealings to woo South East Water and its 700 employees to the city. “The whole process has been done behind closed doors,” he said. It was decided to canvas candidates in the upcoming council elections to determine their views on the controversial development. There was a warning for the state government – expect a backlash against Liberal MP Geoff Shaw, who was described as a “local member on the brink”. He holds the seat of Frankston by a margin of just 2.1 per cent and is being investigated by the Ombudsman over alleged misuse of his parliamentary car. Frankston accountant Tom Pender, who has offices in Playne St, told the meeting the council and SEW could bypass many standard procedures and regulations as they were government entities negotiating directly.

“There is definitely a loophole that allows these two bodies to undertake the transaction without going through some of the usual channels,” he said. SEW was made a statutory authority on 1 July; the deal with City of Frankston was announced on 2 July. Mr Pender said that after discussions with the council he had concluded the council would have little say on the final shape of the development. “Control rests with South East Water and [Planning] Minister [Matthew] Guy has ultimate control,” he said. There was general agreement the size, position and building owner would see the planning minister “call in” the project or the council would ask him to do so. The minister would oversee the project and it would not be subject to local planning laws. The meeting was told architects were working to “secret design principals” and planning laws

would be waived, including the 20metre height limit. There was concern the building with a large atrium would be too large and the design too “industrial” for the creek-front site and that it would set a precedent for other landowners who wanted to develop creek-front land. Gould St resident and community activist Hillary Poad said the SEW building could be “two or three times the size of the Peninsula Centre”, which has 10 storeys. Frankston Council sold the car park to SEW for $4 million in September, claimed by many at the meeting to be below market value. Frankston Council said it was a coup to lure SEW from the City of Kingston and two smaller offices in Lynbrook and Dandenong South. Acting Frankston CEO Jane Homewood said the deal had been brokered over 18 months against stiff opposition from other municipalities, including Dandenong, and would “contribute $115 million a year to the economy”.

the Bauer Brief

The Victorian Government has committed to installing pedestrian traffic lights on Edithvale Road, outside of Edithvale Primary School. I have welcomed the $204,000 investment, as there have been serious traffic incidents on Edithvale Road and many of my constituents have voiced their concerns to me. The crossing will ensure the safety of the students and the wider school community whilst crossing Edithvale Road, a road that has 15,500 traffic movements a day during the working week. The new crossing will be installed and operational by May 2013. The community has welcomed news that the Launching Way facility at Patterson River is now operational and manned. The Victorian Government has given a new 5 year lease to the former tenant and long-time operators, Trevor and Lynette Hogan to manage the Launching Way facility. The lease honours the Victorian Government’s commitment to maintaining a staffed presence at Victoria’s busiest and highest capacity boat ramp. This ensures there is boating and safety advice on hand with staff able to provide advice on the weather, fishing and boating regulations, where the fish are biting, food and supplies, as well as providing a heightened level of security. Last week I was thrilled to host the ‘Century Club’ afternoon tea alongside Premier Ted Baillieu MLA and the Minister for Health and Ageing the Hon David Davis MLC, in honour of those Victorians who have lived for 100 years or more. The event was held in Queen’s Hall at Parliament House and was attended by a total of 51 centenarians and over 60 carers and family members. The centenarians, with more than 5,100 years between them, travelled great distances to attend the afternoon tea. Some guests even travelled as far as Horsham, Ballarat and Benalla. It was a pleasure to host four very special ladies from Patterson Lakes, Chelsea, Seaford and Aspendale Gardens - Florence Close, Winifred Curry, Isabelle Murtagh and Coraline Uren. I’ve recently sent out a mailout to all of my constituents who are over the age of 60, along with some ‘do not knock’ stickers. The feedback I’ve had has been wonderful, with lots of suggestions as to ways we can make our community an even better place to live and work. If you would like to receive a ‘do not knock’ sticker please contact my office. I’m interested in hearing your ideas and views. Please email me at donna.bauer@parliament. vic.gov.au or call my office on 9772 4544.

On line fatalities TWO men were killed within hours in separate incidents on the Frankston railway line on Wednesday 10 October. A 72 year-old man from was hit by a train and killed at a crossing near Berry Ave in Edithvale about 1.15pm. Later the same day in McKinnon, a 69 year-old man was killed when he was hit by a train about 4pm.

Frankston SES attended the Edithvale incident to help police clear the train and direct people to buses. Train services were disrupted for almost 6 hours, with buses running between stations from Caulfield to Frankston. Many commuters faced long queues and even longer travel times as buses struggled to cope with the peak hour rush.

Port Phillip five-year clean-up plan By Jo Winterbottom THE state government has released a five-year plan to clean up Port Phillip and the Yarra River. The plan gives Port Phillip a tick for good health, but says “we still have work to do”. Port Phillip “baykeeper” Neil Blake of Port Phillip Ecocentre welcomed the plan, saying it was pleasing to see various government bodies and organisations working together. He singled out one of the plan’s four key priorities – support for community action – as a way of involving more people in care of Port Phillip. “It’s pleasing to see there is going to be encouragement for people to get involved and be active in community groups,” he said. “The bay is still there and it will continue to serve us well as long as we give it some TLC.” The plan includes $20 million for Communities for Nature grants to “encourage environmental citizenship”. The other “key priorities” include clearer and more responsive management, preventing pollution and reducing litter, and providing accessible information about water health. Management responsibilities have been streamlined so that the Department of Sustainability and Environment will ultimately have responsibility for Port Phillip, with Melbourne Water the peak body for the Yarra. The Environment Protection Authority will manage assessment and reporting of water quality problems. Flinders federal MP and Opposition environment spokesman Greg Hunt

applauded plans for better and more open water quality monitoring. “This will make it easier for communities to access water quality data, become better informed and therefore better motivated to protect the bay,” he said. He would like to see Port Phillip and its catchment area the “cleanest urban waterway in the southern hemisphere”. The report predicts increasing pressure on waterways from extreme weather events, which are forecast to increase as a result of climate change.

“Recent heavy rain highlights how extreme weather events can degrade water quality and affect the amenity of the Yarra and bay,” it says. It cited a large algal bloom that formed in Port Phillip in January caused by hot weather followed by heavy rain. “The bloom was associated with poor water quality and fish deaths. “Large bloom events can stress aquatic animals by reducing the available oxygen in the water, clogging gills or producing toxins.

Cafe with perks

A cut above

TRADING for only three years, this popular cafe still presents in as-new condition with a faultless fit-out. Takings are about $8000 per week - with average coffee sales of 13-kilograms per week - resulting in declared net profit of $100,000 per annum. Enjoying a busy shopping centre location, the cafe is adjacent to a bus stop and taxi rank. This is an exciting opportunity to buy an already established business in a great location.

THIS hair salon has a superb fit-out with a modern, trendy decor incorporating 11 cutting stations and three beauty rooms. The rent is $2500 per calendar month which is offset by two sub-leases. The business shows good turnover in an exclusive retail location at the busy intersection of Frankston–Flinders Road and Moorooduc Highway. All systems are in place to maintain the growth of the business and the owner is willing to stay on if required.

AROUND THE REGION

Last bridge beam brings MPs’ praise By Mike Hast THE freeway that will change life on the Mornington Peninsula is a step closer to completion with the lifting into place of final bridge beams. The concrete beams were placed by a 600-tonne crane to form a 320-metre long bridge connecting Peninsula Link, EastLink tollway and Mornington Peninsula Freeway. Inspecting the work were Coalition government MPs Edward O’Dono­hue, who is Parliamentary Secre­tary for Trans­port, and Minister for Education Martin Dixon, whose electorate is the southern Mornington Peninsula. Mr Dixon said Abigroup had made remarkable progress over the past few weeks, particularly at the EastLink in­ter­change. “People can now see the ramps that will take them on and off Peninsula Link,” he said. Landscaping and feature lighting on the bridge over EastLink would “look really spectacular and provide a new gateway to Frankston and the greater peninsula”. Mr O’Donohue said “one of Vic­ to­ria’s biggest bridge building programs is nearing completion” and “Peninsula Link is on track for an early 2013 opening”. The Southern Way consortium and its construction contractor Abigroup have been aiming to finish the freeway by 8 December, but have faced a number of challenges including unexpected wet weather. The freeway was started in February 2010 during the drought, which

broke in autumn of that year. The region has since received average or above-average rainfall, forcing Abigroup to use local roads instead of the freeway alignment as well as other logistical challenges. The project has been dogged by delays including industrial action by the CFMEU, trucks being impounded by WorkSafe after one carrying a huge beam crashed on the Monash Freeway last December, and vandalism at several depots. The most recent blow was Abi­ group’s parent company Lend Lease announcing it was conducting an investigation after discovering alleged under-reporting of an anticipated loss on the freeway. Lend Lease suspended two of its senior executives and two Abigroup executives, and sent a field team to scrutinise the project. A report is due later this month. The 27-kilometre freeway between Carrum Downs and Mt Martha has nine interchanges and 35 bridges. The cost of construction was originally $759 million, but has risen to $849 million, according to a report by the state auditor-general. Built under a public-private partner­ship deed, the freeway will cost the government $2.3 billion over 25 years. n Time lapse footage of the crane lifting bridge beams into place is available to view at www.mpnews. com.au in the ‘video’ section

Poppy’s Problem-solving

SOME say rock icons Dragon grew up with the Australian music scene and others affirm it was Dragon that helped the scene grow up. Whatever the case, with hits flowing before Cold Chisel left the rehearsal room, before Icehouse band members had studied for their algebra finals, and before Australian Crawl had learnt to swim, Dragon had the nation captivated with songs such as April Sun in Cuba, Are You Old Enough?, Get That Jive, Still in Love With You, Sunshine and more. The kings of the pub scene and emperors of excess, the band’s live show was unsurpassed, and their rock ’n’ roll lifestyle will go down in music industry folklore. During the ’70s, Dragon was among the biggest rock bands in New Zealand, gaining even greater success on the Australian circuit. Dragon’s history begins with brothers Todd and Marc Hunter, natives of the North Island town of Taumarunui; from childhood on, the siblings performed professionally in their parents’ jazz band, with Todd learning guitar and Marc picking up the drums. The brothers played in a variety of NZ bands, together and independently; Dragon emerged in 1973 from the remnants of Staff – Todd on bass, singer-pianist Graeme Collins, guitarist Ray Goodwin and drummer Neil Reynolds. Conflicts emerged and clean-living Collins was sacked in favour of keyboardist Ivan Thompson. This left Dragon without a singer, but the problem was solved when Marc Hunter signed on. Seemingly overnight, Dragon fell out of commercial favour; their next single, Love is Not Enough, failed to chart, and their first NZ tour since 1975 was a washout. When the album bombed, Dragon disbanded, but in 1982 reformed to pay off their debts. The line-up – the Hunters, Taylor, Hewson and Jacobsen – fared so well during the reunion tour that they soon released a new single, Joanne. Its follow-up, Rain (1984), was a big hit and many fans agreed that its accompanying LP Body & the Beat was among their best ever. When the old conflicts arose, only the Hunters were left. (Tragically, just hours after quitting the band, Hewson was found dead.) The next LP, 1986’s Dreams of Ordinary Men, was produced by Todd Rundgren. Shortly after, the band once again called it a day. Liberation Music has released a two CD set The Dragon Years Fortieth Anniversary Collection 40 Years, 40 Tracks with many of the hits.

BETHEL rang in deep despair. Seems she and her “ex” were prolific users of social networking sites, and constantly updated all their friends and contacts, in fact the whole world, about important stuff – like when they were going to cut their toenails, what fast food outlet they were getting the night’s meal from, and what TV show they intended to watch. The problem was that when she “threw him out” she told all her friends in cyberspace and in the “cloud” that he was short in all areas of assessment, had halitosis, wore smelly socks to bed and was as useless as an ashtray on a motor bike. This made her feel good, but she forgot to stop his access to her networking sites. She told me his name was “That Funny Pig”; it was a bad phone line, but I think that is what she called him, anyway I digress. Her ex, TFP, replied to all Bethel’s contacts with a full number on her. He told them, and the whole world, that she suffered from flatulence, had body odour, was a poor bed companion, and had the names of 11 men tattooed on her very large, dimpled backside, and that there was plenty of room for more tatts. Poppy’s solution Years ago, before everyone knew everything, Bethel would have been told to “have a nice cup of tea, a Bex and a good lie down”. I don’t think Bex exists now. The damage would have been restricted to a small number of friends sworn to secrecy (that’s a joke) and tattoos were in limit use. Also there used to exist things called discretion and decency, and people were told to never “air their dirty linen in public”. I told Bethel to contact everyone on her social media sites and tell them she was closing down all contact as she had taken a new, secret job with a government agency starting with “A” and had to become invisible and move. I told her to go to the newsagent and buy a “Mebook”, also known as a diary, a fountain pen and a bottle of ink. Instead of updating things on the internet, write the important stuff she was doing (like toenails and nasal hair removal) in the Mebook every day. Anything she wanted to update in the Mebook after some months had expired could be dome without detection using the same fountain pen and ink. (Try doing that when you find the ballpoint pen you originally used is worn out and you can’t find a colour match.) I told her to lock the Mebook away and if things went poorly, she could always burn it (council regulations permitting) unlike the social media sites where evidence lives forever. I suggested some good products for the bodily issues, to consider tattoo and cellulite removal, and follow the advice “keep your ears open and your mouth closed”. n Poppy will solve problems every fortnight.

For those about to Rocktober By Stuart McCullough WE made it. Despite everything, we have managed to endure 11 long, tedious months. I’ll be honest and say, at times, I wondered whether we’d ever finally get here. But we have. Thank goodness. I have long believed there are 11 months of the year that do little more than take up space on the calendar. When all is said and done, there’s only one month that truly matters. You can keep February. I care little for May and July and can take or leave March and June. They are trivial, meaningless months. The only month truly indispensible is Rocktober. Not everybody appreciates Rocktober. In fact, there are some folks who still insist on calling it by its former Gregorian calendar name of October. These resisters probably still use imperial currency and ride a horse to work. Such backward-looking zipper dodgers might be able to raise a barn in a day, but they know precious little about rock ’n’ roll. It’s their loss. For the rest of us, Rocktober heralds 31 glorious days in which ordinary folk are entitled to live out their rock star fantasies in all their glory. For starters, I intend to wear leather trousers pretty much continuously. This may raise a few eyebrows at work and will likely result in some serious chafing issues when I go jog-

ging, but that’s the kind of sacrifice the rock lifestyle demands. I will wear them even though pants made of leather best suit a person of a certain physical type. It’s a cold, hard reality that leather trousers should only be worn by someone who is either very slender or who is a cow. But if you’re not a bovine, then you definitely need to be quite thin. Rock stars who wear leather are often described as “snake-hipped”. Sadly, I could only claim to be snake hipped if the snake in question was a python that had just swallowed a heifer. But I won’t let that hold me back. This month, the ordinary rules can be thrown out the window. But there’s more to Rocktober than wearing leather. This month, I will

not answer the telephone with a mere “hello”, but with a hearty “check one, two – testing, testing”. More than that, every time I have a meeting, I’ll begin by trying to get the participants to clap in unison. Once the meeting is adjourned, I will return after a minute or two for an encore. Even if everybody else has left the room, I’ll still come back, talk for another 10 minutes before standing up, tipping over a chair, raising my fist and leaving again. For this month and this month alone, I do not have shopping lists. Instead, I have riders. Granted, my needs are modest. My rider will consist of milk, bread and orange juice as well as more traditional demands such as the removal of all the brown M&Ms and a

fur-lined sink. I will wear sunglasses at all hours, even to the movies, and each time I sign my name – whether on a cheque or a passport application – I’ll include the words “Thanks for listening – keep on rocking” before my signature. But Rocktober isn’t just about personal indulgence. It’s also a chance to make the world a better place. Disputes and grievances will not be settled by way of an address to the United Nations or by acts of war. Instead, world leaders will be required to resolve their differences by way of duelling guitar solos. Who wouldn’t support our bid for a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council if, instead of boring everyone rigid with some turgid speech, our representatives produced a Stratocaster, planted a foot on the foldback monitor and cut loose with an almighty solo? Luxembourg, as splendid as I’m sure it is, is not a rock ’n’ roll nation. Try naming one decent rock musician from Luxembourg. Exactly. (If you answered “Serge Tonnar and the Legotrip” I’d have to say, technically speaking, he’s more a folk artist. Sorry.) It is no accident that the third country vying for United Nations glory knows a thing or two about kicking out the jams. Finland is a very rock ’n’ roll nation. Without doubt, they’ve

planned their campaign with Rocktober firmly in mind. I’ll simply say that we ignore them at our peril. It would be a shame to lose out on such a prestigious gig simply because our competitors were willing to break out a double kick drum and we weren’t. Enjoy this month while it lasts. And even if I am well past my rock ’n’ roll prime – as anyone who has seen me try to board a tram in my leather trousers will surely attest – it’s not too late for me. This month I will start a band. It will be loud and it will be guitar driven. Perhaps I’ll use AC/DC as my template. Better still, maybe I’ll form my own AC/DC tribute band. The only problem is that some of their lyrics are a little smutty. It might be unbecoming. But, then again, this is a month where anything is possible. I could easily tidy up the words to make them more politically correct or, if you prefer, “PC”. In fact, I think I’ll call my band PC/DC. Whole Lotta Rosie will now be Real and Healthy Sized Rosie. Highway to Hell will be recast as an ode to physical fitness and rechristened Highway to Health. It will be fantastic. Now excuse me while I turn my amplifier to 11 and plug in the Les Paul. It’s time for some rocking. Happy Rocktober to you all. www.stuartmccullough.com

Witnesses add to wars’ death toll A PLAY on the words and images that daily provide insights into wars around the world brings home the often deadly job of the war correspondent. The play Bare Witness by Mari Lourey, directed by Nadja Kostich, deals with the real-life experiences of photojournalists as they grapple with complex moral and physical challenges of reporting from war frontlines. It will be performed at the Shirley Burke Theatre on Saturday 20 October at 8pm. Set in the Balkans, East Timor and Iraq, Bare Witness follows a team of complicated, flawed characters who share the unbreakable bond of war photojournalists and scrutinises the way we view our humanity through the fragmenting lens of the media. Bare Witness is a theatrical approach to a topic to which the public has become desensitised. “This is a play where audiences always leave talking about the world,” Lourey said. “More journalists have died in Iraq than Australian soldiers. “This play shines a light on the changing world of war correspondents where once they were protected and now they have become a part of the story.” The play takes audiences on a journey into the disintegrating mind of the main protagonist Dannie (played by AFI award-winner and former Mornington Peninsula resident Daniela Farinac-

ci) as she re-lives her experience as a war photographer. “Researching this play, I became intoxicated with the world of photojournalism. What makes someone become a foreign correspondent or photographer, mostly always with enormous personal consequences, is at the heart of my writing this play,” Lourey said. “I also wanted to pay tribute to their courage in telling the real story of people’s struggle and suffering.” Developed over several years, Bare Witness received the 2005 R E Ross Trust Script Development Award and was shortlisted for the Patrick White Playwrights’ Award in 2008. Director Nadja Kostich’s has been praised for her treatment of the play. “I worked on a score with the actors and creative team that is a meld of images, human and instrumental sounds and physical movement,” she said. “The chasm between this impressionistic interpretation and the narrative of the script makes for a sometimes uncomfortable tension that mirrors the extremes of the world the characters inhabit.” Bare Witness, Shirley Burke Theatre, Parkdale, 8pm Saturday 20 October.

HISTORY

100 years of worship at Edithvale Uniting Church By Dorothy Evans THE Edithvale Uniting Church on the corner of Edithvale Road and Clydebank Road began as the Aspendale Methodist Church in 1912. The area at that time was known as Aspendale until the Edithvale railway station opened in 1919. Subsequently in approximately 1925, the name of the Church changed to the Edithvale Methodist Church. Another name change occurred on 26th June 1977 with the formation of the Uniting Church in Australia, and so today the Church is the “Edithvale Uniting Church”. On 28th July 1912, the first Aspendale Methodist Sunday School session commenced in the morning in a private house (Gloster House) on the southeast corner of Edithvale Road and Station Street with 27 scholars. The first worship service was held in the evening of the same day, and was attended by 24 adults. Mr Sam Upton was appointed as the first Home Missionary. His daughter, Mrs Marj Browning, attended the

church for most of her life until she died in 1990. Land was purchased in August and September 1912, and building of the original weatherboard church with a galvanised iron roof began. The church was built almost entirely by working bee volunteers under the direction of Mr J. Robinson and Mr E.A. Baker, and on 12th January 1913, the Aspendale Methodist Church was opened. On 18th July 1959 the cream brick church standing today was opened by Rev Norman Elliott, president of the Methodist Conference. The building project was supervised by Mr J. Robinson and Mr D. Armstrong (both trustees and builders), with architect Mr F. Clarrie Armstrong, and with members of the church involved in the construction. Many people remember Sunday School anniversaries in the 1960s. The old church was transformed with a stage of at least four tiers of planks stretching up nearly to the roof, under

Sudoku and crossword solutions

the sign “Glory to God in the Highest”. There were over 200 children in the Sunday School and they lifted the roof with their favourite songs under the direction of the conductor, Mr Les Payne, and pianist Mrs Booth. Over the years, there have been many active groups within the church. Sporting activities included badminton, cricket, table tennis and tennis clubs. Fellowship groups such as the Ladies’ Guild, Delta Guild, Men’s Clubs, Uniting Church Adult Fellowship, and youth groups, have given the congregation the opportunity to enjoy the company of other members in addition to worshipping together on a Sunday. Members led a very social life in the 1980s under the leadership of Joan Marshall (wife of Rev Norman Marshall, a dearly loved minister) who organised many Cafe Chantants (formal dinners in the church hall) and the informal Beef on the Spits. The Edithvale congregation shared their church with members of the

Samoan Christian Congregational Church of Western Samoan for 20 years until the Samoan people built their own church in Springvale Road. Although the congregation today is not as large as in the past due to changing lifestyles and changing demographics, the fellowship at the Edithvale Uniting Church is still warm and welcoming. The small but active Edithvale UCAF (Uniting Church Adult Fellowship) meets regularly for fellowship and organises fashion parades to raise funds for the church and Rason Orphanage in North Korea. The church choir sings every Sunday morning. “Countdown to Christmas” is held each November, and “Countdown to Easter” is held in March, to bring the Christmas and Easter message to primary school children. The church hall is used constantly by various community groups. A history has been compiled of church activities over the last 100 years and this history, together with

many photos of the past, will be on display at the anniversary luncheon. On Sunday 21 October 2012, Edithvale Uniting Church will celebrate 100 years of worship in Edithvale. The service at 10.30am will be led by Rev Neil Peters and Pastor Di Paterson, and the preacher will be the Moderator of the Uniting Church, Ms Isobel Thomas Dobson. There will be special singing by the Chelsea Uniting Parish Choir. The service will be followed at 12.30pm by luncheon in the church hall. Enquiries to the Church Office on 9772 6010 or email chelsea.parish@ ucappep.net Dorothy Evans is a Church Elder at Edithvale Uniting Church.

Somie rolls Carrum as Seaford and Parkers fight for supremacy DISTRICT

By IT Gully DESPITE rain affecting a lot of cricket on Saturday, there were five matches played in MPCA District grade. At the conclusion of day one of the second round match between Carrum and Somerville, the Lions have a lot of work to do to get the 12 points. Winning the toss and batting first, Carrum was dismissed for 152 in 74 overs. If not for 82 from Dean Polson, the Carrum scorecard would have looked a lot worse. Aaron Kaddatz has started the season in fine fashion for Somerville and claimed the dangerous Josh Dent early in the innings. Kaddatz struck eight runs later when he picked up the prized wicket of Shawn Foster, caught behind by Craig Black for just seven. Polson then took to the Eagles’ bowlers before being removed with the score on 121. The Lions then lost four wickets for three runs, giving the Eagles the upper hand. Cory Foster offered resistance

late in the Carrum innings with 23. Kaddatz finished with four wickets, and Sam Delaney and Russell Wilkes picked up a couple each. Seaford set Delacombe Park 200 for victory after scoring 199 in 74.1 overs on Saturday. Considering the match is being played at Delacombe, combined with the fact the Parkers are potent with the bat, 199 might not be enough. Teenager Damien Lawrence was once again the shining light with the bat for Seaford, scoring 51, while Chris Cleef at the top of the innings scored a valuable 45. Reeling a little at 6/135, skipper Nathan Volpe (35) worked with Andy McMannis (18) to push the total close to 200. Steve Anderson was the pick of the Parkers’ bowlers with 4/31 from 22 overs, and Varun Singh claimed 2/45 from 17. Pines has given Frankston YCW a mountain of work to do. In fact, the Piners will be looking for an outright win. Pines batted first and compiled 250 in 62 overs. Harley Peace-Stirling top-scored with 71, Brett Hudgson made 55 and Harley Parker opened with

41, while skipper Ricky Ramsdale scored 35. In reply, the Stonecats are in trouble at 3/19. Nick Wilcox took 2/3. Langwarrin appears to be on top in its match against Main Ridge at Lloyd Park. The Ridge won the toss and elected to bat, but was in some early trouble at 2/28. Gareth Wyatt was the star of the show with the bat for the visitors, scoring 90. Only two other players scored double figures. Main Ridge was bowled out in the 52nd over for 148. Dwayne Doig was the pick of the bowlers for the Kangas, claiming 5/56 from 22 overs, and Andy Johnson and Mal Coutts each claimed two wickets. In reply, the home side is 1/39, Simon McEvoy unbeaten on 22. Boneo will be hoping to build on its sensational day one against Baden Powell. Winning the toss and sending the visitors in to bat, the ploy paid off as the Braves were bowled out for 102 in the 40th over. In reply, Boneo is in command at 1/52 after 25 overs.

Hoppers face outright embarrassment SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully IT’S been a tough couple of years for Dromana Cricket Club and things didn’t improve on Saturday against Rosebud. The Hoppers have been subject to a number of outright defeats in recent seasons and they are staring down the barrel of another one in MPCA Sub-district cricket. At Rosebud’s Olympic Park, the visi­tors won the toss and chose to bat. Just 36 overs later, Dromana was all out for just 55. Not one Dromana player made it to double figures. The highest score was nine from Andrew Thomson. There were 41 runs made off the bat. Extras contributed 14 to the total, including eight byes. Jason Nagel mauled the opposition, snaring 7/17 from 18 overs, including eight maidens, while Scott Millar also bowled 18 overs and picked up 3/25. In reply, Rosebud was 1/34 before rain stopped play. Darren Kerr is not out on 24. Carrum Downs’ batsmen were thank­ing their bowlers for their efforts with the bat after a horror afternoon in the middle against Seaford Tigers. Strangely enough, the Cou­gars were celebrating at the end of the day. The Cougars were 4/9 and 7/32 before the tail began to offer some resistance. They finished on 59 after Chamara Perera made 15

and Tim Aydin 12. Cory Hand picked up four wickets for the Tigers. Seaford was then bowled out for 77, Perera snaring 5/20 off 17 overs. Starting 22 runs behind on day two, Carrum Downs will be hoping for a reverse outright this weekend on the second day of the clash. Tootgarook had a day out with the ball against the competition’s new­ comers French Island. The Islanders, who have been play­ing in A1, had the bye in round one and received a hostile reception at Truemans Rd in Rosebud West on Saturday. The home side won the toss and elected to bowl. Inside 25 overs, the Tooters were batting after bowling out French Island for 44 in 24 overs. Dale Stephens and Paul Stevenson picked up five wickets each. Tootgarook will be looking for an outright win. The team batted for 48 overs for a return of 2/156. Luke Thompson is not out 67 and you would reckon skipper Scott Didcock will allow him to go for triple figures before declaring and putting the Islanders back in. The matches between Balnarring and Tyabb and Red Hill and Skye were washed out and they will play one-day matches this Saturday.

King of knocking over castles’ 8/37 PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully SORRENTO appears to be in the box seat heading into day two of Provincial cricket this Saturday against Long Island, thanks to a sizzling performance from opening bowler “AJ” King on day one. King bowled a blistering spell of 22 overs, which included nine maidens. He finished the afternoon with 8/37. Both finalists last season, the Sharks made light work of the Islanders’ bat­ting order, dismissing them for just 125 in 55 overs. There is little question Long Island’s batting line-up looks brittle without Michael Burke, who is enjoying some time off before resuming some time before Christmas. Paul Hartle was forced to open the batting on Saturday and while he top scored for the Islanders with 48, it left the middle order looking vulnerable. Justin Bridgeman (21) and Joel Ste­venson (26) had an impact but no other Long Island bat scored more than 10.

The afternoon belonged to the Sor­rento bowlers, led by King. Anthony Blackwell rolled the arm over for 13 overs and was rewarded with figures of 2/34. Keeper Rob Dunball snared four catches. In reply, the Sharks are crui­sing at 0/39, having faced the last 20 overs of the day. Jedd Flack remains at the crease, unbeaten on 14, while Nick Jewell is not out 22. A wonderful century from Morning­ton keeper Rob Hearn has given his side some chance of victory against the benchmark of the competition, Baxter. With just another three players scor­ing double figures, Hearn almost single-handedly helped the Doggies to 195 in 68.3 overs. Brodie Symons was the next best for Mornington with 16. Hearn hit 13 boundaries in his total of 124 when opening the innings for the Dogs. Skipper Luke Popov went for a duck. The star of the show for Baxter was youngster Sam Wolsgrove, who snared 6/52 from 19 overs. Mark Uccello claimed 2/46 from 14.3 and Adrian Mack was eco-

nomical as usual, bowling 19 overs for a return of 1/30. In reply, the reigning champions are 0/31 after six overs, Shane McComb unbeaten on 20. Heatherhill will need to be at its best with the ball, defending 171 this week against Crib Point. The Hills won the toss and elected to bat at Crib Point Rec Reserve, keeper-batsman Dean Shaw getting his side away to a flier with 59. A number of players in the middle order got starts, but were able to go on with it. Teenager Kristian Miller made 23, John Hille 20 and Christian Heath 21, and skipper Matty Meagher made 18. Member of the “Kelly Gang” Glenn Barclay was in a destructive mood, taking 8/37 from 23.2 overs. Brad Davidson was the other wicket-taker for the Pies, bowling 25 overs and snaring 2/67. All other matches in Provincial were washed out and the teams will play one-dayers this weekend.

French aiming for more success By Peter Ellis ALL of a sudden French horses are dominating Melbourne’s feature staying races. Two years ago Americain won the Melbourne Cup and last year’s winner was Dunaden, with both coming from the Chantilly training venue about an hour’s drive from Paris. Then on Saturday Shahwardi, who like Americain is prepared by Alain de Royer-Depre, won the Herbert Power Handicap at Caulfield. Now Americain and Dunaden, who is in the stables of Mikel Delzangles, are shaping as the two horses to beat in the $2.5 million Caulfield Cup on Saturday. An imposing individual, Americain has had five starts in Victoria under de Royer-Dupre’s care for four wins and a luckless fourth in last year’s Melbourne Cup (3200m). He demonstrated shorter distance are not a problem by winning the Geelong Cup (2400m) and the Moonee Valley Cup (2500m), so is shaping as the horse to beat. This is not to underrate Dunaden, a stayer of the highest class. Six weeks after winning last year’s Melbourne Cup he won the prestigious Hong Kong Cup (2400m) at Sha Tin and his subsequent form in England has been outstanding. Shahwardi showed he is benefiting from de Royer-Dupre’s magic when he stormed home from last to first to win the Herbert Power Handicap on Saturday. Initially prepared by de Royer-Dupre, the seven-year-old was transferred to the stable of English-based Australian Jeremy Gask before returning to the Frenchman’s stable earlier this year.

French are coming: Left, Shahwardi with Kerrin McEvoy races away from Excluded ridden by Craig Williams in Herbert Power Handicap at Caulfield on Saturday. Above, Allison Bennett, trainer of New York. Pictures: Slickpix

Although Saturday was his first win in three years, Shahwardi showed he was on the way back by finishing a pleasing third in the Group 2 Prix Kergorlay (3000m) at Deauville in July. Another French cup aspirant, Brigantin, also has come through the Prix Kergorlay. Trained by the “little general” Andre Fabre at Chantilly, Brigantin finished second to the globetrotting Joshua Tree (who won the Canadian International on Monday morning Australian time) and a long neck ahead of Shahwardi. Interestingly both Americain and Dunaden contested the Prix Kergorlay on their way to Melbourne. Cranbourne trainer Michael Kent’s sights would have risen as a result Shahwardi’s triumphant performance

at Caulfield. Tac de Boistron, a newcomer to his stable, defeated Shahwardi in the Group 2 Maurice de Nieull over 2800 metres at Longchamp in July. A winner of five of his 26 starts, Tac de Boistron has progressed this year and Kent is confident he will be competitive in the Melbourne Cup. Former Test cricketer and television commentator Simon O’Donnell can expect to pick up prizemoney with imported Gatewood over the coming weeks. Sent out favourite in the Herbert Power, Gatewood was travelling like a winner before being shuffled to last approaching the home turn. He didn’t receive a clear passage after this and virtually cantered home in seventh place. Even though well beaten, he

indicated he would be a force in any race. Leading trainer Mark Kavanagh has won a Melbourne Cup and a Cox Plate, but Sunday’s victory in the $200,000 Cranbourne Cup gave him as much satisfaction as any of his other achievements. Kavanagh was chuffed because he had brought Midnight Martini back from injury “She was on her way to the Melbourne Cup when she suffered a serious back injury on Derby Day last year,” Kavanagh said. “There was a time I doubted she would race again but we put a lot of work into her and now she is right, we just have to keep her ticking along. “We’re pretty pleased with what we’ve done and the win is a credit to

everyone connected to the stable.” With Midnight Martini on the comeback trail, Kavanagh will aim her at the Group 2 Matriarch Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on 10 November. Although Boom ‘n’ Zoom failed in his attempt to win back-to-back Cranbourne Cups, local trainer Ken Keys was pleased with the performance. Keys said Boom ‘n’ Zoom, who finished seventh in the race, was excused by his jockey Glen Boss: “Glen told me they went too slowly for Boom ‘n’ Zoom to put himself in the finish,” Keys said. The gelding was still coming home when the race was virtually over. Keys said he is looking forward to Boom ‘n’ Zoom’s next race – the 2400m Bendigo Cup on 31 October. Moe trainer Allison Bennett is looking to bigger races following New York’s victory in a restricted handicap at Cranbourne. “He has been slow to develop and mature,” Bennett said of the five-yearold. “Because of this we have taken him along quietly but the way he won suggests to me he is ready to tackle the Country Cup at Flemington on Oaks Day.” n International form expert Peter Ellis provides weekly racing tips online at the Tatts website.

Fishing as lumpy as spring weather ON THE LINE

By Paul “Tracker” Pingiaro YES, it’s spring and this means the weather is all over the place. One day it’s fine and 28 degrees and the next it’s windy, raining and 13 degrees. Welcome to southern Victoria! Weather forecasts should be checked regularly as they can change with little or no notice. All anglers should have Melbourne’s 128km radar and one of the many wind indicating and forecasting links bookmarked on their smart phones. At the first hint of bad weather, anglers should pack up and head back to the safety of the ramp. Both Port Phillip and Western Port are capable of going from perfectly calm to dangerously rough. It’s always better to wish you were on the water than wishing you weren’t. In the past week, fishing has been just like the weather. Great catches one day followed by not much the next. This is due to the weather and the water temperature. As the climate moves from winter to spring and then from spring to summer, all this will change. The only sure thing at the moment is you will only catch fish if your lines are in the water. Where they’re biting Snapper Matthew Hunt of Matthew Hunt Fishing Services (0419 760 510) reports the snapper are a little inconsistent, yet for those willing to put in the time and effort, good results are achievable. He recommends fishing 12-16 metres off Mt Eliza when its rough, 18-21 metres out from Carrum and Mornington

PAGE 34

when it’s calm and off Williamstown after the rain. He said pilchards have outfished all other baits by about 10:1. He said as the water temperature rises, the snapper are only going to get better and will be going nuts by Melbourne Cup weekend. Snapper ranging from pinkies to 3kg have been caught from both Black Rock and Mornington’s mussel farm. At Schnapper Point Boat Hire we have seen a few fish to 5kg. Best results have been at the mussel farm and also in 19 metres in front of Mornington pier. In Western Port some good catches are getting boated at Lysaghts and in front of Watsons Inlet. Eagle and Crawfish rocks also are worth a try. For those fishing off piers, some great reds to 7kg have been caught at Mornington, Mordialloc and Stony Point; the best results are when it’s rough and windy. Squid The inkers continued to be consistent in southern Port Phillip with some up to 2.5kg being boated, while at times they have been hard to find. However, once anglers locate them, some very good results are being achieved. Many anglers fishing Portsea have travelled up as far as Rye to escape the crowds. Further up the bay, toward Morning­ ton and Frankston, the fishing contin­ ues to be very slow. In Western Port good squid to 3kg have been caught from Stony Point to Quail Bank. For both bays size 3.0 jigs have been doing the damage. For those fishing the piers, Sorrento, Portsea and

Chelsea – Mordialloc News 16 October 2012

Flathead Some large catches of flatties have been boated from Schnapper Point and Yaringa boat hires. They have been a good staple when the snapper have failed to bite, with most fishos at least going home with a feed. Best baits have been squid and blue bait, and best results are in 6-12 metres of water. Yaringa Harbour Jonny of Yaringa Boat Hire reports Tyabb Bank is producing leatherjacket, squid, grass whiting and King George whiting while the mouth of Watsons Inlet is seeing snapper and few gummy sharks. Best baits have been mussels on the banks, and pilchards and squid in the deeper water. Tip of the week Always fish with the lightest sinker the conditions will allow. This will give the bait a more natural presentation and hence help you catch more fish. Tight lines and calm seas. How’s that: Kosta Linardos caught this lovely snapper last week while on a fishing charter with Matthew Hunt.

Blairgowrie have been the best in Port Phillip while it’s Stony Point, Flinders and Warneet for the best results in Western Port. Whiting Southern Port Phillip from Rye to St Leonards has been seeing the best results, however some nice whiting are also getting caught off Sunnyside in Mt Eliza and Mills Beach in Mornington. Best results are on pippies, squid and mussels.

In Western Port the whiting are just like the water temperature and are starting to warm up. The best locations are Watsons Inlet and Quail Bank. Best baits have been pippies and mussels. Gummy sharks Some nice gummies are being caught on the change of tide off Rye in Port Phillip and from Eagle Rock in Western Port. Best baits have been fresh salmon and squid fished on a running sinker rig.

n Paul “Tracker” Pingiaro has been fishing since he could hold a rod and stay in the boat. He was introduced to the sport by his father. Tracker has boat hire businesses in Mornington and at Yaringa Boat Harbour in Somerville. He has been a fishing writer for several magazines and now brings his knowledge to MP News Group papers for season 2012-13.
