Memorial in doubt Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au

LANGWARRIN Community Centre has a wide sphere of interest, from raising money for a men’s shed project to buying bedding for the homeless. The centre has been running since 1982, benefitting families throughout the district with a variety of activities, including the occasional care program where Elijah was photographed on Thursday. In the background are centre manager Sam Rowley, Caz Howell, Billy, Aerin, Gina Taylor, Brooke Hunter, Scott Prior and Alannah Mellor. Picture: Yanni See ‘Centre giving back to its community’, Page 6.

FRANKSTON’S proposed new war memorial will not be completed in time for next year’s Anzac Day centenary commemorations amid councillors’ concerns about the project’s cost. The mayor Cr Darrel Taylor told The Times the new memorial “will not be available” by April next year and funding already committed to the project was in jeopardy due to missed construction date deadlines. Record crowds are expected at next year’s ceremonies and the existing Davey St site cannot cope with the high number of attendees, with insufficient car parking spaces being a major problem. Councillors unanimously agreed to give the project the go ahead at a council meeting eight months ago but, at the time, a council officers’ report noted: “it is envisaged construction of the war memorial will be funded by others”. Since the initial discussions, the memorial’s projected cost has risen from $300,000 to about $1.4 million. Cr Taylor has pledged $5000 from his mayoral discretionary fund towards the project, the federal government has promised $100,000 and Frankston RSL will contribute $10,000 annually for 10 years, mainly for “maintenance” costs. “Final costings haven’t been confirmed for the proposed war memorial in Beauty Park, however the total project - to be delivered over four stages subject to available funding - is expected to cost approximately $1.4 million,” Cr Taylor said. “To date, around $650,000 has been committed or pledged by coun-

cil, Frankston RSL and a range of grant schemes including $100,000 from MP Bruce Billson, meaning stage 1a is currently funded but the remaining three stages still require further funding.” A further discussion by councillors about the memorial due to take place at Wednesday’s council meeting has been “deferred” and Cr Taylor said councillors did not know when it would be back on the agenda. Last year’s report by council officers stated: “For the war memorial and avenue of honour to be completed for the centenary service, a preliminary time estimate indicates that construction of the project should begin in July/August 2014.” The Times understands councillors are now divided, mainly due to fears about how much the relocation of the memorial will ultimately cost and differences of opinion about the new memorial’s design. Frankston resident Leanne Hodolic, a self-described “time poor mother”, has rallied Facebook troops to highlight council’s apparent about turn, setting up a ‘New War Memorial’ Facebook page to gather support for the memorial relocation. “I’ve always had a passion for honouring our service men and women who have served our great country and feel passionate about the relocation of the war memorial to the Beauty Park site,” she said. Ms Hodolic said she was “outraged” that councillors were now haggling over who should stump up the cash to relocate the memorial after unanimously backing the project late last year.

Former Swan runs rubber duck race Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au SPECTATORS lined Frankston’s foreshore last Monday hoping their lucky ducky would be the one to win them some big bucks. It was a race meet with a difference trying to make a difference. The inaugural Rubber Duck Derby in Frankston was a fundraiser for the Cancer Support for Families Foundation. Entrants ‘bought’ rubber ducks which competed to be first across the finish line in Kananook Creek. Race organiser Brett O’Farrell couldn’t have been happier with the outcome on the day. “It was a great result – we raised about $20,000 from the race,” he said. Mr O’Farrell previously worked at the Cancer Council and has established the CSFF as a way to support the families of cancer sufferers. Often, family members have to take time off work to help care for and support relatives with cancer. “There can be a huge cost to families financially when someone has cancer and many other charities do a fantastic job raising money for cancer research but this is something a bit different,” Mr O’Farrell said. The Chelsea resident had a playing stint in the AFL turning out for both the Sydney Swans and Hawthorn in the late 1990s before turning his hand to working in sports event management. He said the skills he learned managing sports events has proven to be invaluable after he moved into the not-for-profit fund raising sector.

Half their ducks: Thousands of rubber ducks race along Kananook Creek in Frankston’s first Rubber Duck Derby. Pictures: Yanni Kathleen Burgess’ rubber duck was first past the post in the race between Playne and Davey streets last Monday, scooping up a $2000 first prize. Rebecca Sweeney’s duck was placed second, earning $1000 for its owner. Brooke Holloway received $500 for a third place duck finish. The CSFF will be holding more fund raising events throughout the year. Mr O’Farrell plans to host another rubber duck derby at Kananook Creek next year to build on the positive reception to this year’s event. Visit www.csff.org.au for further information.

SUE Williams, pictured, has been appointed CEO of Peninsula Health. Ms Williams, former general manager Healthcare Division of the Spotless Group, replaces Dr Sherene Devanesen who resigned in October last year after 13 years with Peninsula Health to become chief operating officer of the Yooralla Society of Victoria. Peninsula Health chair Nancy Hogan said Ms Williams, before working Spotless, had been a partner in the health and human services division of KPMG as well as holding various positions with Healthscope and the North Western Healthcare Network. “Sue’s earliest qualifications were in Nursing, but she has added to this a Bachelor in Business Management and a Master of Business Administration from Monash University,” Ms Hogan said. “In 2009, she undertook the advanced management program at Harvard University.” Acting CEO David Anderson will continue until a starting date is confirmed for Ms Williams.

Thousands nabbed in police road blitz Chris Brennan chris@baysidenews.com.au EXCESSIVE speed and alcohol are suspected to have been behind a serious car crash in Carrum Downs that left two men fighting for their lives in hospital after the car they were travelling in slammed into a telegraph pole last Sunday night. Police attending the crash scene described the injuries suffered by the 31-year-old driver and his passenger as “shocking”. The crash occurred on Frankston Gardens Drive in the industrial area of Carrum Downs about 11.40pm when their vehicle veered out of control and crashed into a concrete power pole. Both men were airlifted to The Alfred hospital where they both remain in a serious condition. Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb of Frankston police said the men were lucky to be alive and faced “a long recovery”. Police have requested anyone who saw the incident or a vehicle driving erratically in the area around the time of the crash to contact Senior Constable Delaney at Frankston police on 9784 5555 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. The crash came of the third day of an intensive police road safety operation across Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. Hundreds of penalty notices were issued and more than 20,000 drivers breath tested over the holiday period. “Thankfully, we got through the long weekend without a fatality on our roads in Frankston, but it could have been at lot worse,” Senior Sergeant Lamb said. “We caught six drink drivers in Frankston over the weekend, so while we had no fatalities which is great, we had at least six idiots prepared to put

themselves, and the rest of us, at risk, driving while impaired by alcohol.” On Friday night alone, peninsula police conducted more than 4900 preliminary breath tests along Peninsula Link and Mornington Peninsula Freeway, detecting four drunk drivers. Among those charged were a 21-year-old Mornington man who returned a reading of .072 and was also charged with disqualified driving, a 30-year-old Frankston South woman with a .07 reading, a 65-year-old Mount Martha woman (.062), and a 23-year-old Frankston South woman (.072). But it wasn’t just drivers affected by alcohol or drugs who were in the spotlight during Operation Wasp, with police also focusing on speeding, mobile phone use, seat belt offences and fatiguerelated. Operation commander highway patrol officer Sergeant Pete Martin said police had mixed feelings about the result. “It’s fantastic that we have spoken to 4926 drivers and they were all doing the right thing,” he said. Reacting to online social media comments about the inconvenience caused to thousands of drivers by the police road safety blitz, Senior Sergeant Lamb that the disruption to traffic was necessary in order to get dangerous drivers off the road. “Disruption to traffic to enforce road safety... that is just life,” he said. “Disruption to put drink drivers off the road is a small price to pay.” Across the state, more than 8300 traffic offences were detected during Operation Regal, which was a 20 per cent reduction over the same period last year. More than 128,500 drivers underwent preliminary breath tests, with 267 recording a blood al-

cohol concentration over the legal limit. Victoria Police road policing commander Superintendent Neville Taylor said that while he was pleased with the overall results, he remained concerned by the high number of drivers detected driving under the influence of drugs. “Of the 542 road side drug tests conducted by police, 51 returned positive results,” Superintendent Taylor said. “That’s one in every 11 drivers tested which is just not acceptable. “We’ve seen the catastrophic impact the combination of alcohol and drugs and driving

has on the roads and it needs to stop. “While we are pleased the overall offences have dropped, there are some people in the community who choose to engage in risky and dangerous behaviour, whether speeding or using the mobile phone, and we know this too has deadly consequences. “One person did lose their life on the road and I really feel for this person’s family and extended community who will be feeling the loss. “We thank everyone who did the right thing on the road this long weekend, it does make our job a lot easier,” he said.

An independent voice for the community We are the only locally owned and operated community newspaper in Frankston City and on the Mornington Peninsula. We are dedicated to the belief that a strong community newspaper is essential to a strong community. We exist to serve residents, community groups and businesses and ask for their support in return.

GIVING back to the community is the ethos of the Langwarrin Community Centre and the proof’s in the pudding: it has raised $200,000 for the proposed Langwarrin men’s shed project – more than anyone else bar the federal government. The shed will be built next to Langwarrin hall later this year. And, with 2000 people coming through the doors each week, the centre is a vibrant place. Each member’s family automatically receives membership and is entitled to use the facilities and participate in courses – on all sorts of subjects. Working with and for the community is the goal: daily programs range from out-of-school-hours care, accredited courses, hobby groups, holiday activities, immunisation programs - and even the Hangout for youngsters, which provides a place for them to go, feel safe, and receive support, referrals and counselling. “The main focus is on getting the kids to talk,” manager Sam Rowley, who joined the community centre in 2008, said. Starting in 1982 in the old school house in Warrandyte Rd, the Langwarrin Living & Learning Centre took over from the progress association which had worked hard to establish a hub for community activities, meetings, classes, venue for clubs and a friendly ‘base’ for local residents. The first coordinator was June Creed. Expansion up to 1993 prompted the centre to move to a new home on the corner of Lang and Warrandyte roads where community programs and courses grew rapidly. In November 2007 members voted to change the name to Langwarrin Community Centre. Ms Rowley says the centre’s vision remains unchanged. “We set out to be a vibrant, flexible, caring and welcoming focal point for residents and we are still that and more.

“We aim to support the development of the community and to provide opportunities for learning, playing, growing and connecting in a caring and nurturing environment.” Ideas for worthwhile projects – such as raising money for the men’s shed in Lloyd Park – often come “through the grapevine” and their value to the community can be enormous. “We hear of people’s different needs and we get together and make things happen,” Ms Rowley said. Men’s shed members did their CPR and first aid courses – for free – at the Langwarrin centre whose members also raised funds for a defibrillator for community use. “If local residents need it they know that we have one here,” she said. Another project – particularly with winter upon us – is the purchase of 20 Backpacks in a Bag for use by the homeless sleeping rough on the peninsula. They will be donated to Community Support Frankston in Beach St next month. “We are happy to give them something to make their lives easier,” Ms Rowley said. Another idea was running a food bank for those who find the weekly shopping bills beyond their resources. Run by volunteers, the Langwarrin Community Centre has a staff of 24 including part timers. Fees for members are $9.50 a year. Building works to start later this year will make the entrance foyer more “vibrant and friendly”. A community garden is in the planning stages. Those wanting to be involved should contact the Ms Rowley. When everything’s said and done the centre is focused on having conversations about Langwarrin and deciding what matters most to its people. Ms Rowley said members valued and respected the local community and the contributions they make to the centre. The partnership is working well and Langwarrin is all the better for it.

Continued from page 1 Ms Hodolic told The Times she had contacted Frankston’s nine councillors to find out if they had changed their minds about supporting a new memorial. She said five councillors – James Dooley, Rebekah Spelman, Suzette Tayler, Michael O’Reilly and Darrel Taylor – had responded. Cr Dooley said the initial proposal for the war memorial carried a $300,000 price tag and this had since ballooned out to about $1.6 million. “Everyone agrees we need a new war memorial, but it has to be done properly and not rushed,” Cr Dooley said. “There’s concerns about the design of the new memorial itself which has been presented to councillors as a ‘fait accompli’ and from an oversight point of view we have to ask whether council should be funding about 90 per cent of this project.” He said the Commonwealth, state government and the RSL should be the “main stakeholders”, especially since “many people” reckon councils should “stick to funding roads and rubbish collections”. “There will be a lot of criticism, but councillors have a duty of care to ensure ratepayers’ money is appropriately used.” Cr Dooley expressed misgivings about the “concrete slab” design of the proposed new memorial and said it “won’t resemble a memorial”. He is concerned the new design has “no cross, no flame and no cenotaph”. Cr Taylor said “council is committed to supporting the concept of the new memorial” but acknowledged some councillors had concerns about council picking up the lion’s share of the costs. Cr Dooley believed the RSL in particular should contribute more to the project “up front”

since the organisation rakes in millions of dollars of pokies revenue annually in Frankston. The mayor agreed and said it was his personal view that council, federal and state governments and the RSL should make a joint effort to fund the war memorial. When contacted by The Times, Frankston RSL president Brent Clyne said it is not “in the RSL’s charter” to fund memorials. “We assist as a custodian and work to facilitate commemoration events,” he said. “We’ve already promised $125,000 - a significant sum - and we won’t be pushed towards contributing more.” “It’s unfortunate that a couple of councillors make comments but don’t realise the terms of the RSL’s charter.” Mr Clyne expressed disappointment that the war memorial would not be on this month’s council agenda. Dunkley MP Bruce Billson said there had already been “a lot of collaboration” and he was keen “to see people get on with the project”. “The $100,000 committed [by the federal government] is not in doubt - it’s an important project,” he said. Mr Billson made the $100,000 promise as part of his pre-election manifesto and it was confirmed as a funding commitment in last month’s federal budget. “I’d like to think that there is a lot of goodwill to work together to see the new memorial built,” he said. “It would be terrible to allow council strife and petty politicking get in the way.” Mr Billson said anyone who had attended this year’s Anzac Day commemoration at Davey St could understand the need to move the memorial from its present location. “It would clearly be the best outcome for a larger memorial site to become a reality.”

Abuse awareness all wrapped up THE colour purple spread across central Frankston streets last week. Trees, bollards and poles in Well St and Shannon Mall were adorned with knitted coloured items to ‘yarn bomb’ the area as part of an awareness campaign to highlight World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. Jenni Frendo wrapped up trees outside the Shannon Mall cinema complex and along Wells St with vibrant purple knitted ‘trunk warmers’. The United Nations has designated 15 June each year as a day to raise awareness of the “often under acknowledged issue” of elder abuse. Elder abuse can come in many forms financial abuse, physical abuse and general neglect – and often occurs when a trusted family member or friends don’t respect the rights of

older people. Seniors Rights Victoria, organisers of local World Elder Abuse Awareness Day events hoped: “the installation of beautiful knitted covers for everyday objects is a whimsical approach to start a conversation about this somewhat confronting issue.” Financial elder abuse is a common issue for many older people, as they tend to become dependent on relatives for the management of finances. However this can have potentially devastating impacts for older people if their finances are not managed correctly or in their best interests. The Frankston Arts Centre was also lit up with a purple hue over the weekend to highlight the day. Visit www.seniorsrights.org.au for more information.

Ladies united for memorial push A DEDICATED band of sisters is hitting the streets of Frankston to do their bit to raise as much money as possible to fund the proposed new war memorial at Beauty Park. Jane Taylor, the wife of mayor Darrel Taylor, has gathered together a group of hardy souls to get out and about to shake collection tins to raise money for the memorial cause. Mrs Taylor said she worked “part time” in the aviation industry and “full time” as a mother and was keen to contribute in any way she could since her uncle was a Vietnam veteran and her husband served overseas during a 16-year career with the Australian Army. “It’s just snowballed and a lot of mums at school have spread the word so we got lots of volunteers,” Mrs Taylor said.

Members of the RSL Women’s Auxiliary have also joined the cause. “I think it’s important to recognise women’s wartime contributions and also honour the men and women still serving so it’s been great to have such a fantastic response.” Such has been the enthusiasm for the new memorial, 95-year-old Phoebe Parker has been keen to do her bit to collect money. Her husband served in World War II. The ladies collected more than $600 from Frankston residents in just over four hours last Thursday. Mrs Taylor thanked all those who had generously donated money.

NEWS DESK It was 1964 and Melbourne had never before put on such a welcome for musicians. STEPHEN TAYLOR, not yet a teenager, remembers his older sister going into town the see The Beatles. Here he talks to two men who toured with the Fab Four.

Ches ‘knew’ The Beatles were something special CELEBRATIONS marking last week’s 50th anniversary of the Beatles tour of Australia struck a resonant chord with Rosebud’s John (Johnny) Chester. The popular musician was a support act for the Fab Four when they played to packed – and screaming - houses in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and then New Zealand. Memories came flooding back when the phones ran hot last week after the screening of an ABC documentary on the landmark tour. Australia had never seen anything like it before, with half of Adelaide’s population jamming the route from the airport and Melbourne’s streets a sea of eager young faces cramming to catch a glimpse of the group on the balcony of the old Southern Cross hotel. That was on the first day – Sunday 14 June – and the same thing happened the next. Melbourne’s youngsters were on a new trajectory: the Swinging 60s had begun – nothing would be the same again. “I’ve had a lot of calls and emails and some very favourable comments about the TV show,” Chester, 73, told The Times last week. “Liz [his wife of 50 years] thought it was terrific. “I wasn’t aware of any [behind the scenes] controversies like some people are trying to suggest. One TV station asked me to tell what was really going on backstage and I said nothing. Even if I knew I wouldn’t tell.” Chester sang four songs a show for two shows a night as support act after local band The Phantoms, New Zealand rocker Johnny Devlin and British act Sounds Incorporated had warmed up the 4500-strong crowd. Not that they needed warming up, as the band they had really come to see was riding a wave of popularity never seen before in Australia. The Beatles’ shows lasted half an hour, but no one heard them sing more than the first few bars of any song as screaming girls drowned them out. “I really liked what they were doing,” Chester said. “And the proof was certainly in the pudding as they had the top six singles in the charts and their first album, Please Please

Me would have been number one too, if we’d had a chart for albums. “I felt that something special was happening with all the media attention they had and I liked the way they treated everyone. They were nice guys who made everyone feel at ease.” Chester said The Beatles’ tour gave him – and many other performers the confidence to regard singing as a career and not just something to do after their day job. Referring to The Beatles as the complete package - writing, singing and playing their own songs - Chester says he enjoyed their company: “We got on very well and we had the same musical influences. “We were the same age and we were a long time in each other’s company. We had similar interests and we ate together – even though there would be about 40 other people in the room at the time.” He treasures a quiet chat with George Harrison in which they discussed their favourite musicians, the songs they liked – and their love of cars. George had just bought an Etype Jaguar and was keen to get back home for a first drive. Another highlight was attending Paul’s 22nd birthday on the Sydney leg of the tour. Chester had turned 22 the previous December. Before the second Adelaide show, Chester’s nervousness threatened to derail proceedings. He thought “no one would be interested in what I was doing” and even began steeling himself for boos from the audience. However, an inspired choice of song: Fever by Peggy Lee, combined with innovative lighting techniques, helped him produce a stunning performance. Even John Lennon - watching from the wings - was blown away: “Where did you get that idea from,” he asked incredulously after the set. “That was f…ing fantastic.” His confidence soared and nervousness was never a problem again. “The Beatles were exactly what people wanted,” Chester said. “They were smiling and happy, there were no fights. It was a wonderful experience.”

Magical tour: Musician John Chester and band manager/promoter Bruce Stewart recall their days spent half a century ago with The Beatles. Picture: Yanni. Inset, John Chester with the Fab Four.

Whirlwind tour and a party, but no photos ONE of the men who played an intrinsic role in the Beatles tour – and in getting Johnny Chester his first big break – is Bruce Stewart. A sales rep at radio station 3DB in the 1960s (he’s now a sales rep for The Times), Stewart also managed a The Phantoms a band popular on the local scene. He ran a series of dance concerts at Festival Hall at which Johnny Chester sang. Now living at Skye, Stewart was an associate of Dick Lean, who ran Festival Hall where The Beatles later played. At one of the Sunday afternoon shows, Stewart recalls talking to Lean who had just received a phone call from promoter Kenn Brodziak, in London, asking who he should sign up for a future tour of Australia. “I said I’d go and ask the teenagers who they wanted to see,” Stewart recalled.

MOONAH LINKS

“There was a choice of Gerry and the Pacemakers, Brian Poole and the Tremeloes and The Beatles, so I called out their names one by one. The Beatles got the most applause, so I told Lean and things started to fall in place.” Stewart said he had heard The Beatles’ first album, Please Please Me, and thought it “fantastic”. He tried to buy a copy but it had already sold out. That confirmed his belief in the band’s popularity and touring potential. Lean was of a like mind, saying that if their record made number one then their concerts here would certainly be sell outs. Meeting Lean later at his office at the Southern Cross hotel, Stewart heard the good news: The Beatles had signed and would tour in June. But who could he suggest as support acts? “I said The Phantoms and Johnny

Devlin - who was known nationally and was from New Zealand where the tour would finish. He asked for one more act. I said Johnny Chester who was a local legend. Johnny O’Keefe was big nationally but Chester was really big in Melbourne. “He called them all, got positive responses and said: ‘Done, we are all set to go’.” But Stewart’s role was really just beginning. Lean had appreciated his advice and assistance in putting things together and asked him to join the tour. After the first eye-opening concert at Adelaide, Stewart got up early and called into sister station 5AD to broadcast back to DB in Melbourne how the show was received and what songs were sung. It was tantamount to a warning: The Beatles’ phenomenon is on its way - get ready! Continued Page 10

Seaford crossing safety tackled THE busy crossing at the corner of the Nepean Highway and Seaford Rd, long considered a safety hazard for pedestrians making their way from beside the Woolworths car park to the beach, is to be upgraded. The state government has given $44,000 to improve the crossing, including changing traffic signals so that the northern pedestrian crossing at the intersection will no longer operate at the same time as the Seaford Rd right turn. MP for Carrum Donna Bauer said the intersection had long been considered dangerous due to high number of pedestrians, especially families and young children, crossing over to Seaford beach, while vehicles were turning right from Seaford Rd into the highway.

“Unfortunately we have seen eight crashes at this intersection in the five years to June 2013, and three of those resulted in serious injury,” Ms Bauer said. “Many of the crashes at this location have been between pedestrians crossing on the northern side of the intersection and right turning vehicles from Seaford Rd on to the highway.” “The work we are undertaking as part of this important program will improve safety for pedestrians crossing at the intersection and also the safety of drivers.” Funding for the upgrade was announced as part of a $17.7 million package for 26 projects across the state to identified through crash history analysis.

influence their dealings with others. A highlight for Stewart was Paul McCartney’s 22nd birthday at the Sheraton in Sydney. He was having a great time and asked if he could be in a photo with the band. “They said ‘of course’ and so I raced upstairs to my room to grab my camera but, on the way back, I was stopped by security who said ‘No pictures, no cameras’. I was deflated, thinking what might have been.” A memento like that would have been worth its weight in gold to him today. After the Sydney leg of the tour Stewart had had enough. New Zealand was not an option. “I rang Lean and said I’d had it and flew home. My touring days were over.” Back at the Southern Cross an elated Lean – flying high on the success of the tour - asked him: “Well, how can we top that?” “I said “How about Elvis?” Tentative negotiations were entered into and a fee of $1 million bandied about. “But we found out later that that was just for Colonel Tom Parker,” Stewart laughed. As far as touring was concerned, The King had left the building.

Touring with The Beatles

Stewart recalls talking to George Harrison on the Fokker flight to Melbourne: “I said it must be great seeing the world and having all these people interested in you. He said: ‘Does it get any better? All we see are the insides of planes, limos, and concert halls and then get back on the plane and don’t really see anything’.” Stewart thought Harrison rather introverted, John Lennon as “knowing he was the leader of the band”, and Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr as only interested in “having a ball”. They did. “Early on I had a chat with [Ringo’s stand-in drummer] Jimmy Nicol and realised it would have been a tough gig for him. Most of us were in the same boat as him, though, thinking ‘What are we doing here?’” But The Beatles – as individuals – were pleasant, affable and well behaved. “Before Adelaide we wondered what they would be like,” he said. “But they all shook our hands, were polite and just ordinary blokes.” And generous, too: They let the support acts use their then huge Fox amps and didn’t let fame

Plugged in: Mayor Darrel Taylor prepares to unleash the power of solar at the Lyrebird Community Centre. Picture: Gary Sissons

Library and centre power up IF someone tells you there’s a new energy about Carrum Downs, they’re right. Earlier this month, Frankston mayor Cr Darrel Taylor joined youngsters to unveil the largest investment in solar power in Frankston Council’s history. Two 19 kilowatt solar powered systems installed at Carrum Downs Library and Lyrebird Community Centre were switched on. “Between them these two systems will generate over 50,000 kilowatt hours a year, which dwarfs the 5700kW an average house in

Frankston uses,” Cr Taylor said. “This means the systems will pay for themselves in around seven years, and save approximately 63 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent entering the atmosphere each year.” A third 12.5kW solar power system has been installed at the Frankston Visitor Information Centre, expected to generate 16,700 kilowatt hours a year. The solar power systems were financed under council’s Energy and Water Efficiency Infrastructure capital works program.

Sanctuary born of a boyhood dream Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au GERALD Durrell is a famed British naturalist, conservationist and zookeeper. Before his death in 1995 he had been at the forefront of wildlife preservation for decades, fascinating and capturing the hearts and minds of animal lovers worldwide. This story isn’t about Durrell, but it would have never been written without him. It starts with him and shows how far his influence stretched, from his zoo on the island off Jersey in the English Channel, to Pearcedale on the Mornington Peninsula. His love of animals and their continued existence may help save the endangered Tasmanian devil and orange-bellied parrot. Durrell’s ideals first fired the imagination of a young schoolboy in Mt Waverley, east of Melbourne, only to resurface years later as inspiration for a goal set during Michael Johnson’s “mid-life crisis”. Johnson’s project, Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park, opened in 2001. A yearbook from his first grade sees him writing about looking after a bird. “It must have really got me and I wrote about it in class. I knew I wanted to look after animals,” he says. Gerald Durrell started collecting

animals for zoos in the United Kingdom, including going to Africa. Johnson was especially taken by Durrell’s My family and Other Animals, a humourous autobiography covering four years of his life on the Greek island of Corfu. Eventually, Durrell started his own zoo and became more involved with animal conservation after realising he was supplying the same type of animals to the same zoos because of the rate of attrition. “He started the world’s first conservation zoo aimed at saving animals from extinction,” Johnson says. Durrell also established a training centre for operators of “conservationist zoos”. “I was at that stage in my life, having done a few things [including managing boatbuilding suppliers Marine Timbers] and gone through a divorce. You could say it was a mid-life crisis. “I was 40ish and had a dream and decided it was best to do it now. I had seen people in their 40s building boats and knew they’d be old by the time they could sail [away in] it. “So I enrolled in endangered species and conservation management.” On his return to Australia, Johnson realised there were a lot of endangered species in Victoria: “Australia has the worst [animal extinction] record in the world. We’re pretty efficient at that.”

Moonlit Sanctuary was to provide an insight into small nocturnal animals, the kind “many locals had never seen before”, despite them not always being uncommon in the region. “I decided I could help conserve animals and show them to people,” Johnson says. The site of Moonlit Sanctuary was chosen because it was close to

Melbourne and the tourist routes to the Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island. “The concept was mine, but establishing the sanctuary was done with the support of my parents.” As well as many resident animals, birds and reptiles, the sanctuary has breeding programs for six endangered or threatened species of animals

and birds: orange-bellied parrots; Tasmanian devils; regent honeyeaters; southern bettongs; spotted-tailed quolls; and bush stone curlews. A cancer is decimating the devils in the wild in Tasmania, the number of surviving orange-bellied parrots is estimated at 50 in the wild and 300 in captivity while the quolls and curlew were once common on the peninsula.

Moonlit scenes: Among the native wildlife at Moonlit Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park are, from left, Cape Barren geese, Tasmanian devils and emus.

The bettongs were wiped out on the peninsula by the 1890s. Quolls were last recorded at Arthurs Seat in the 19th Century and the curlews have been extinct on the peninsula since the 1940s, their demise blamed on changes in land use, dogs and foxes. Johnson believes they could eventually be reintroduced with landowners now making their properties more suitable for native wildlife. The sanctuary’s breeding programs for orange-bellied parrots and regent honeyeaters are carefully managed by committees of experts and government wildlife departments. Stud books are kept and populations managed. Some of the birds have already been

taken for release into the wild. Johnson estimates the sanctuary will attract 50,000 visitors this year. “Seven years ago I decided open the sanctuary during the day, and it’s been our future. The night time is really different; daytime is more popular and I don’t really think people understood why a wildlife park would open at night. “We struggled for the first five years and then started to move ahead after opening during the day. Tourists come when they can – and it’s generally through the day, Johnson said. He decided to open 10am to 5pm seven days a week and add a cafe. “We didn’t market ourselves nearly

enough in the beginning. The media only likes something when it’s new and it is only new once. “Putting more effort into marketing really paid off.” A rise in the number of visitors also followed his decision to become involved with “active marketing” – attending trade shows in Australia and overseas. “I was in the United States 18 months ago and met representatives of an Australian tourist business. I can’t tell if I got one or 1000 extra visitors, but we do see a lot of Americans, so something is working somewhere.” Proof of this came last week with the announcement

Johnson’s marketing also involves working with the local tourism body and other commercial operators. He has become as supporter of cooperative marketing. Moonlit takes out advertisements in magazines and prints and distributes its own brochures. “I’m always looking for opportunities to speak to people and go to Rotary groups and other service organisations as well as retirement villages.” Vouchers are donated to schools. Visits to the sanctuary are part of the curriculum at some schools. The sanctuary has 25 staff on its roster with a minimum two people

working whenever there are night bookings. The sanctuary operates under licence and has 65 species of animals, reptiles and birds. It belongs to a zoos’ association and an eco-tourism association. “We’ve jumped through a few hurdles we set ourselves – they were higher than those set by the government.” The animals are obtained from a variety of sources, including breeders, other wildlife parks and zoos, universities and some, mainly snakes, have been pets. “We have a very professional staff of keepers – our accreditation covers that – who run the animal kitchen, preparing meals for the different animals.” Feeding the animals can involve buying frozen fly larvae, insects and rodents from specialist suppliers and making mixtures of baby breakfast cereals, honey and Sustagen. Some of Moonlit’s possums have already been seen by thousands, although the actual location of the nocturnal animals was kept a secret – they starred in a documentary about the relationship between inner city possums and their human neighbours. Filming possums on location proved too difficult for the producers while Moonlit’s “captive” actors were ready to take centre stage on cue. One of the brush-tailed possums has also played the role of a New Zealand possum in a feature film. Reprinted courtesy BusinessTimes. www.businesstimes.net.au

Reading enhances learning skills ENCOURAGING young children to read is an important part of their ongoing academic development. Through reading they’ll develop a higher aptitude for learning, pick up critical language and enunciation skills and be better able to express themselves. That’s why a $150,000 grant to Frankston Council to redevelop Seaford Junior Library is so important. Carrum MP Donna Bauer said the grant was “fantastic news” for the library, which this year celebrates its 50th year. It follows a visit in April by Local Government Minister Tim Bull. “He was able to see for himself the great work librarian Bev Motteram and her supportive committee does in the local community,” Mrs

Bauer said. “During that visit, the minister was told about our push to get funding for the library’s redevelopment, and I am thrilled that he has responded so quickly. The Seaford Junior Library has been and is an important asset to this community. This funding means that it will continue to be.” Frankston mayor Cr Darrel Taylor welcomed the news, too. “This funding will help to secure the future of the library, which specialises in books for preschool and primary school-aged children. The services it provides are a great asset to young families in the area, and I would like to thank the member for Carrum for her ongoing support for this redevelopment.”

Tasty moments: The panel of judges which worked its way through 550 entries at the year’s International Cool Climate Wine Show.

Adelaide Hills white a cool hit A WINERY in the Adelaide Hills topped the prize pool at this year’s International Cool Climate Wine Show. Bird in Hand’s 2012 Nest Egg chardonnay won Best Wine of Show, Best White Wine and Best Chardonnay. The Best Red Wine of the Show went to Honey Moon Vineyard, Adelaide Hills, for its 2012 shiraz. Judges who tasted the wines at Mornington Racing Club on 25 and 26 May had trouble choosing the best Mornington Peninsula white wine, finally settling on a three-way tie between a 2010 Cuvee Brut from Elgee Park, Merricks North, the 2013 chardonnay from Montalto Estate, Red

Hill and the 2012Nepean Chardonnay from Jones Road Wines, Moorooduc. A public tasting held after the judging but before the official results were released, saw the People’s Choice Award go to New Zealand winery Rockburn Central Otago for its 2013 Tigermoth riesling. The 550 entries at this year’s show came from 18 cool climate regions across Australia and New Zealand. Judges awarded 17 trophies, 34 gold, 98 silver and 131 bronze medals. The cool climate wine show, started in 2000 by the Red Hill Agricultural and Horticultural Society, has gone from “strength to strength”, chairman

Liz Dart said. “This is due not only to the highly credentialed panel of judges and the wines that are entered, but also because of the numerous volunteers, and our amazing sponsors and supporters, without who the event would not be able to function.” “Another extraordinary show with an eclectic range of styles rewarded. This show is all about quality and diversity, allowing both the small and larger wineries to showcase their talents,” chairman of judges Meg Brodtmann said.

Latchford, of the Westernport Hotel, on Friday evening last. This lady travelled by the train from town, and when it arrived at Hastings, mistook the side of the carriage the platform was on, and stepped out onto the permanent way and received a severe shaking, being unable to walk home. Dr Griffith of Somerville has been attending the injured lady. *** THE finances of the Mornington shire are in a healthy condition, as compared to this time last year.

Mr

Moss therefore arranged with a friend in London to forward the apples to the King, and a cable message has been received by Mr Moss, in which it was stated that His Majesty had been pleased to accept the gift with thanks, and that the apples had opened up in a very satisfactory condition. The genial president of the association is naturally highly pleased that his apples have received such prominence, and that they have been accepted as a gift by Royalty. It is a splendid advertisement, not only for the district in which they were grown, but for Australia. ***

His Majesty had been pleased to accept the gift with thanks, and that the apples had opened up in a very satisfactory condition.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Sir,With your permission I would like to draw attention in the column of the Standard to a public matter in Somerville, that has apparently been lost sight of, but needs attention none the less. I refer to the need of a rubbish tip.

June edition out now! PEARLMAG.COM.AU PAGE 32

Frankston Times 16 June 2014

The Shire Council to their credit, be it said, introduced this matter some time ago, and took the initial step towards securing it. Their choice unfortunately met with much opposition, (unwarranted in my opinion) from a section of the ratepayers. This had the effect of giving the proposal such a “setback” that it was eventually allowed to drop altogether. Now, I contend, Sir, this matter needs reviving. A corporation tip in a progressive township like Somerville is not only desirable but has become a positive necessity. One has only to walk around the town, more particularly in the vicinity of the Park to find evidences of this. Householders must occasionally dispose of their accumulated rubbish due to the lack of proper provision being made, they have simply shot the same down at the first convenient spot. Can anything I ask, be more unsightly, or suggestive of a mild barbaric custom than this? Surely some spot, not too far distant from the town can be secured, that will be voted by at least, a majority of those interested, as suitable for the purpose. If so, by all means let it be done, thereby preventing a continuance of this untidy and objectionable practice. Yours etc, Resident. *** LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Sir, A paragraph in your report of the proceedings of the last meeting of the Frankston and Hastings Shire Council should give cause for thoughtful consideration on the part of our councillors. They are chosen from our shrewdest men, and, as such, should put their feet down firmly on the total clearing away of the timber on our

roads. Far too many of our roads have been completely cleared of trees, with the result that travellers are exposed to the blasts of every wind that blows, either in summer or winter, there is no shelter on a cleared road, certainly no beauty. The road is no better kept, and it may be said that no useful purpose is served by the timber being removed. Contrast one of these with that portion of the Frankston-Hastings road at Baxter’s Flat, and one will immediately see and appreciate the difference. The time of year when Labor Day is celebrated is now with us, and it should be remembered that not only is the planting of trees a necessity, but also the preservation of them. The Main Roads Board wishes this to be observed. So long life to it, and to the councillors who carry out.its ideas - Yours, etc, Traveller, Somerville. *** AN advertisement in this paper will canvas the whole district for you, and what is more, will secure for you a much better hearing in most cases than you could hope to get yourself, because the ad will reach the people when they are in a mood to pay respect to your claim; that is, the announcement will be SEEN and READ at a time when people are in the act of reading. And the cost of securing these special advantages is very low, as our rates will prove. *** DON’T borrow your local paper. If you want it, send your name and have it posted to you for 2/6 per quarter. From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 20 June 1914


HISTORY

In search of the origins of peninsula football

By Lance Hodgins Part Three IN the same year of the 1858 match between Melbourne Grammar and Scotch, Mornington, got its cherished pier – a 46 metre long structure at an estimated cost of almost £9,000. The pier quickly fed into the social and economic heart of the Mornington Peninsula, with fishing boats, supply boats, paddle steamers and twice-weekly ferries full of visitors driving the growth of Snapper Point. Mornington rapidly became the major commercial and legal centre for the entire peninsula and, by the 1880s, it was an exciting place to live in. More than 500 residents thought so – three times the number who lived in its nearest neighbour, Frankston, which had yet to be joined to Melbourne by rail. The wealthy of Melbourne built mansions along the coast – Beleura, Sunnyside, Manyung – and in the town – Morven Manor, Sutton Grange – and Main St was filling up with the substantial brick buildings of merchants, traders and administrators. On the approach to town sat the Tanti, the original hotel with its nearby saleyards. The Mornington had moved to Main Street and become the Cricketers’ Arms, later the Grand next door, and the Royal and Kirk’s graced the Esplanade. There were several schools to choose from. In 1878, the original primary school moved into new premises in Vale Street, where it remains to this day. A second school served the children of the “Green Island” (Osborne) settlement around Benton and Craigie roads. By the mid 80s, this school had proved so popular that it moved from near Benton’s Square to its present location in Craigie Rd. In the same year as Vale St, B T Backhouse started a boys’ Grammar School in Brewery (Nunns) Rd, and then moved into the grander surroundings of Beleura. Finally, in 1881, The Mornington Academy was born. Like the Grammar School, the academy proudly offered first class teaching to higher levels, boarding, and a healthy seaside environment. And so the stage was set. It was only a matter of time these schools would meet in friendly rivalry on the sporting field. In March 1882, Mr Gibson-Wylie’s academy and the state school met in a cricket match. This was so successful that the two schools considered joining forces to present a challenge to the older boys at Mr Backhouse’s Grammar School. In May 1882, the academy played a one-innings match against the Green Island (Osborne) State School and a

most exciting and interesting game resulted in a win for the academy. The match took place “on the grounds adjoining the Church of England”. This may have referred to the newly-created reserve on The Esplanade at the end of Main St. To be “adjoining”, however, might have meant the area directly opposite the Church set aside years before for a primary school. Today, the site is covered by the shire offices and library. A return match on Green Island’s turf took place on the Queen’s Birthday holiday. This time over two innings, The academy once again ran out easy victors – by an innings and 4 runs after J Jones scored 32 of the academy’s 59 runs. The academy’s headmaster, Hugh Gibson-Wylie, was well aware of the good publicity gained by his school with these games and, especially, the victories. He was in direct competition with Backhouse’s Mornington Grammar for senior students and further studies, and both charged at least £40 a year for full board and tuition. Emboldened by his cricket success, Gibson-Wylie began to consider the prospect of carrying over these sporting activities onto the football field. That winter, however, would be too soon. If the school was to field a football team then it had to be done properly, with careful preparation, so the Academy boys could perform with distinction. It was not until the following winter of 1883 that negotiations for an opponent were finalised. Vale Street State School had recently appointed a student teacher Joseph Worrell who was a very capable local cricketer and all-round sportsman. Worrell took up the challenge with the Academy, and finally arrangements were made. On Wednesday 15th August 1883, the peninsula’s first complete record-

ed game of Australian football took place. The match was held on the grounds near the Church of England. A most exciting game saw Gibson-Wylie’s Academy prove too good for their opponents, scoring three goals to the State School’s one. Spirits ran high amongst the jubilant academy boys as they celebrated their victory, showering adulation on their best players – Caldwell, McLellan, Jones, and Walker. The state school team was led by student teacher Joseph Worrell, and capably supported by Cavell, Everard and Martin. Joseph E Worrell jr was somewhat of a legend already in Mornington. His father had been the state school head master for almost twenty years, acting as the shire secretary in his “spare” time. At the age of 12, young Joseph would help his father post up the Shire books. Two years later, on the sudden death of his father, the 14 year-old orphan became the sole carer for two brothers and a sister. Joseph was immediately appointed as the Shire Secretary – reputably the youngest in the commonwealth – and a year or two later became clerk of works under the shire engineer. Barely out of his teens, and perhaps looking for a career change, Worrell accepted the position at Vale St as a pupil teacher in 1883. In later years he captained the Mornington Cricket Club, was secretary of numerous companies, ran a successful real estate agency in Mornington, and was president of the shire – all before his untimely death at 40 years of age. Only six months before his death in 1902, Worrell was inspecting the drainage at the “new” football oval at Alexandra Park with two of his fellow councillors, and thoughts would have turned to that schoolboy game twenty years earlier. Councillors

McLellan and Walker would have reminded him that they were on the other team, the victorious Academy. James Caldwell, aged 12, was the academy’s star player in that match. He was the eldest son of the minister of St Andrews Presbyterian church. Nine years later, James was to lose his life along with two of his brothers and nine other members of the Mornington Football Club, in the famous boating tragedy as the team returned from a practice match at Mordialloc. The Academy/Vale Street match of 1883 throws up some parallels to that earlier schoolboy game between Scotch and Melbourne Grammar in 1858. History was doubtlessly repeating itself, but it was now a better developed and more clearly organised game that was being introduced into a new environment. Ironically, a potential spectator at that Wednesday afternoon match was Dr Alexander Morrison, the longreigning headmaster of Scotch College. Soon after that famous game in 1858, Morrison had built a magnificent home on the Esplanade, CraigieLea, from where he began a lifetime of involvement in the community affairs of Mornington. The opposing Mornington headmasters were both interesting characters. James Eccleston Walker had just taken over at Vale Street in 1883. He was a “forceful and determined” man, a strong manager, and a disciplinarian who achieved excellent results for his school. Walker left an indelible mark on his school inspector and, as it turns out, an even more marked one on local sporting history. On his retirement several years later, he returned to live in Vale St where his house was eventually demolished and the land became part of the school property. On the other hand, the academy’s Hugh Gibson-Wylie had arrived in Mornington two years earlier after several attempts to run his own school. After his Clyde House Academy in Brunswick was declared insolvent, H G Wylie moved to Sale where he ran a “private academy” for a couple of years before appearing in Hamilton as the secretary of the Alexandra College for Ladies. The opportunistic Wylie must had have his eye on Mornington when, in 1881, a suitable building became available for rent. A B Balcombe, of “The Briars”, had built a 17-room mansion on The Esplanade, close to Kirk’s and The Royal, and between the Mornington Park and the Church of England. It had been used for some time as a boarding house – not too successfully in its later years, as its tenant became insolvent in 1875 and the elaborate contents were sold at auction. When Balcombe died in 1877, the property

was bought by William Armstrong, the Clerk of Petty Sessions, who already owned several nearby houses. In 1881, the new owner of the boarding house was W Irvine, who found a willing tenant with a new purpose in the schoolmaster Wylie. It was an excellent place for a school. Apart from the outstanding location, the main building was about forty feet in length and thirty wide, subdivided into a dozen rooms. At the back, only a few strides away, was a long wooden building – thirty feet by fourteen – highly suitable as a schoolroom. In 1883, the Aaademy was in its third year and, largely through its sporting endeavours, beginning to make a name for itself. On the night of Thursday 11 October, H G Wylie had retired to his bed at the usual hour and was reading a book, dozing a little – perhaps thinking of the “glory” of the football match eight weeks earlier. Term four was about to start and there was one boarder who had taken up early residence. Half-asleep, he awoke with a start to find one of his wife’s dresses, which had been hung near a candle on the bedside table, in flames. The wallpaper and part of the ceiling were also alight, and Wylie had just enough time to alert his wife and the sole boarder and hustle them outside in their night clothes. A crowd had quickly gathered in response to the rapid ringing of the church bell. In no time the old building was well alight and, in the absence of a town fire brigade, was never going to be saved. The roof caved in, the walls crashed down, and only a brick chimney and the smouldering interior remained of the two buildings. The buildings were insured by its owner, Mr Irvine, as were the contents by Mr Wylie. Nonetheless, the academy was finished. Wylie moved on to New South Wales, where he started a school in Junee. After losing his first wife, he remarried and started the Wagga Wagga Grammar School in 1890. When his young son died quite suddenly at the age of two, Wylie was so distraught that he developed severe internal disorders from which he never recovered. He passed away on Easter Monday 1893 at the age of 53 years. For the Mornington boys who played in the historic Vale Street/ Academy game in 1883, however, life went on. They would soon become young men and play their part in shaping the life of their town and beyond. Within four short years the Mornington Football Club would ring with their names and the memories of those schoolboy days. … to be continued

WHAT’S NEW

Walking the talk at Penbank By Paul Thompson - Principal EXCURSIONS are great. You learn so much. And if you are adventurous, like explorers, excursions in schools can become expeditions. That is what has happened at Penbank School in Moorooduc. Wugubank is Penbank’s annual expedition. It is the Wugularr School, a remote school in the Northern Territory and the Penbank Mob taking a journey each year to each other’s place. In 2009 Penbank and Wugularr developed this amazing partnership predominantly involving students in Year 5 & 6. In preparation for these expeditions, the children know they are going to meet new people and make new friends. They also know they are going to make new discoveries and visit new places, just as explorers do. These expeditions are amazing adventures. So much is learnt and discovered about their very different worlds. Words that describe these experiences such as exciting, challenging, exhilarating, amazing and beautiful come to mind when watching the children in their work and play. As the schools journey together they know to

PAGE 34

Frankston Times 16 June 2014

walk softly on the land and appreciate the beauty of the surrounds of each other’s environments. They learn about each other through their languages, stories and schoolwork. They teach each other all sorts of things. There are constant smiles on faces, as the children are so happy to see each other. They freely laugh because they have so much fun and love to share jokes. They dance, sing, play sport; they walk, they talk! These Wagubank expeditions are amazing journeys. With our feet we run, jump; we walk. And as we walk, we talk. And with our hands we show that we are friends because it is through our hands that we give and share. And mostly the children are arm in arm or holding hands because they are great friends. Wagubank at Penbank is held during National Reconciliation Week. This year’s theme, ‘Lets’s Walk the Talk’ absolutely reflects the work that enables these two school communities to meet each year. The Penbank School family truly understands that reconciliation is a work in progress. The Journey continues – Let’s Walk the Talk!

This one goes out to the Juan I love By Stuart McCullough ABDICATE. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a word that is seldom pressed into service. Like â&#x20AC;&#x153;sprocketâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;unitardâ&#x20AC;?, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of those terms that rarely intrudes on polite conversation. But all that changed when news broke that King Juan Carlos of Spain was going to vacate the throne. As soon as the breaking news flashed on the screen, I immediately fetched my â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Case of Zombie Apocalypseâ&#x20AC;? backpack and headed straight for the cellar. Which, given that I live in a first floor apartment, came as something of a shock for the downstairs neighbours. Reacting as though an invasion of the undead had just been announced may seem a touch over the top to some, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not every day that someone decides to throw caution to the wind and abdicate. Besides, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen several episodes of Game of Thrones and know for a fact that these things can get very messy, very quickly. This was no ordinary, run-of-themill abdication, either. According to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;breaking newsâ&#x20AC;? announcement that ran across the bottom of the television screen as I searched my backpack for a flare gun, King Juan Carlos was not stepping aside on a mere whim or flight of fancy. He was abdicating, so claimed the television, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for Princeâ&#x20AC;?. This seemed even more astounding. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I have several of his albums and even watched a good two thirds of Under the Cherry Moon (if, indeed, there is a good two thirds to be had). But it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d give him my job. And although, outwardly, it may seem a little odd â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if not downright hasty â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to step aside

in favour of a five-foot tall musician and undisputed guitar-playing genius, it seems oddly inevitable that this day would come. Prince Rogers Nelson is no ordinary pop flounce. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bona fide musical icon and virtuoso who would, doubtless, make a wonderful monarch. Lucky Spain, I say. Although abdication can be something of a shock, you can rest assured that Prince is ready. In fact, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as though heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been waiting for this moment for ages. For decades, Prince has dressed as though he was about to ascend to the throne of something. The crushed velvet suits that were one part Austin Powers and two parts the Scarlet Pimpernel in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sir Percy Blakeneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mode. The frilliest of

frilly shirts. The elaborate footwear, to say nothing of his enduring fondness for that most regal of colours: purple. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fooled â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Prince is ready. That said, he is something of a misunderstood genius. There was that period of time during the nineties when he had a contractual dispute with his record label and changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol. Which must have made getting a dinner reservation an absolute nightmare. Imagine: our small purple hero rings his favourite restaurant to book a table only to have the maitre de ask â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;under what nameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? It would have been the least of his troubles. He would no longer have been able to label his youghurts â&#x20AC;&#x153;Property of

Prince â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Do Not Eatâ&#x20AC;? when he put them in the band fridge. It must have driven him crazy to reach for a tub of low fat mixed berry only to find that the rhythm section had scoffed them earlier in the week. Most people wrongly thought he was crazy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true that he probably acted a little strange, but maybe he was just hankering for a night out at a decent restaurant and for people to stop stealing his play lunch. It was during this time that he was christened by a world that cared little for unpronounceable symbols, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Artist Formerly Known as Princeâ&#x20AC;?. Then, after a time, he changed his name back again. Which, technically speaking, made him â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Artist For-

merly Known as the Artist Formerly Known as Princeâ&#x20AC;?. All that is behind him now. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recall the last such major abdication. I know that King Edward VIII chucked it in to take up with Wallis Simpson. To the best of my knowledge, old Wallis couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carry a tune in bucket and it was little wonder he had to quit. He left it to his brother to take over. Moreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the pity. The world might have been a different place had he stood aside to let Vera Lynn snatch the reins of power. Or, if a regal name was a pre-requisite, perhaps Duke Ellington. Maybe King Juan Carlos is setting a trend. One in which monarchs bow out in favour of musical royalty. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to see King Phillippe of Belgium step aside and for the Kings of Leon. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high time that Queen Margrethe of Denmark took the hint and let Queens of the Stone Age have a preverbial red hot go. Imagine a world where those becoming Australian citizens pledged allegiance to Queen rather than â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and the whole thing ended with a communal rendition of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We Will Rock Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? Rock stars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; your moment is now. And it all starts with Spain. I can just imagine the coronation. The pomp. The ceremony. The blistering thirty minute guitar solo that will keep a nation of Spaniards absolutely entranced. Granted, not everyone will love it. But Prince is no stranger to controversy, having released an album of that name as far back as 1981. I, for one, want to wish Prince, the new King of Spain the very best. Long may he purple rain over us. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

WHAT MAKES A HUSQVARNA


Finding the right babysitter AS simple as it might sound, finding the right babysitter for your child can become quite a process, with a few hits and hopefully not too many misses along the way. It is so important to ensure you have someone who will enhance and enrich both yours and your children’s lives. Firstly there are many different options when sourcing a good babysitter. Of course, family or close friends are usually the best option but this is not always possible for most parents. Word of mouth is the starting point. A recommended babysitter is the best type but usually, if someone loves their babysitter, they may be unwilling to share them around. Agencies, local papers and online services are obvious options but don’t hesitate to enquire at a few local organisations such as schools, universities, childcare centres, churches and even your child’s doctor. You may be

surprised at who you might find. Once you have contact with a potential sitter it is vital you meet with them and conduct a casual interview and if possible have your child with you. Meeting at a local cafe or park or, if the sitter is under 16, in their parent’s home are more suitable locations than in your own home initially. Experts cautiously recommend that a child is not qualified for babysitting until 14. Your child’s response immediately to the applicant is a very good guide as to whether or not you have found the right person. Ask open ended questions such as “Why do you like working with children?” or “What do you like best about babysitting?” Their answers may not be worded perfectly but you should get an insight into what sort of sitter they will be. Suggest some of your house rules, such as, limited TV time or no phone use unless an emergency and watch

for a reaction. If they are into your child these facts shouldn’t concern them. Once you have selected someone, invite them over for a half hour to an hour session while you are still in the house. You can monitor how they handle different situations and how your child handles being with them. There are some signs to look out for that can confirm “the right one”. Does your child warm to them? Is the sitter genuinely happy to see your child? Have they respected your time by being punctual and prepared for child play? At the end of the session is your child clean and have they tidied any mess made along the way? Remember, a babysitter is not a housecleaner or cook. They should be focussed on your child’s needs however they need to be capable of maintaining the house and not welcoming you back to a messy, dirty home. TRUST YOUR INSTINCT. A parent knows!

Magpies wind back the clock NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt Crib Point won its first match in eight years against Sorrento on Saturday. The Magpies moved back inside the top three after a come from behind thriller against the Sharks at Crib Point Recreation Reserve. The Magpies have now beaten the two grand finalists of 2013. After leading for the large majority of the day, the Magpies almost kicked themselves out of it, finishing with 25 scoring shots to just 13. Crib Point won the game, 5.20 (50) to 7.6 (48). The Sharks booted the first three goals of the final term to jump to a nine point lead, before the Pies hit back. Jon Flack booted his third goal for the afternoon to reduce the margin to a couple of points, before skipper Luke Herrington put his side back in front with less than two minutes left on the clock. The Pies had reason to be nervous with less than 30 seconds left in the match when Sorrento’s Zac Byrns had a set shot, only to hit the post. Crib Point deserved to win this one. There was a lot of careful planning that went into the victory according to coach Duane Annable. “We were lucky enough to get a look at Sorrento last week against Rye and they were super impressive,” said Annable.

“We knew that we needed to be good for long periods to win the match. “We were all over them for most of the match and deserve to win, however, in the end, we were lucky that we did.” The Pies had a player pull out from the match during the warm up for personal reasons and went in with just 21 players. “It’s been a tough week with players getting the flu and a few injured. We went from ten guys missing out on a game with our reserves to every player getting a game,” said Annable. “Our backs were to the wall a bit but we all just had a dip. Our pressure was fantastic.” James Forecast was up from the reserves and did a great job on Leigh Poholke, while James Hallahan was also tagged. “Paul Smith went to Troy Schwarze and did a good job until Troy did a hamstring in the second quarter,” said Annable. “Zac Dekluever has been very quiet for a few weeks but he did a good job on Ben Schwarze.” Flack was the best player on the ground with three goals while Jake Bromley continued his outstanding season. Brad Arnold is also fitting in very well in the black and white. Chris Bagot and Kayle StringerMorris were the best of the Sharks. The win sees Crib Point go four points clear of Sorrento and Rye in

third place. It is the third game they have won this season by less than a goal. Hastings’ season is still alive after it led all day to beat Pearcedale. The fired-up Blues have been up and down this season but got away to a flier in the opening term to set up the win with a 23 point lead in ordinary conditions. Although the Panthers hit back in the second and third quarter, the Blues were awesome in the final 30 minutes, booting six goals to one to win 12.17 (89) to 4.7 (31). The Blues had nine goal kickers with Steven Robb playing his best senior game for the season with two majors. Justin Berry was on song, while Josh Mulheron and Dale Alanis were also dominant. The Panthers have been good in recent weeks but were no match for the Blues on Saturday. Some questions were asked of the Blues before the game and they responded. Now it’s time to bring that emotion, desire and attitude to every match from here on in. Aidan Simmons was the best of the Panthers, while Matt Smith in defence also worked hard. Red Hill returned to the winners list on Saturday, leading all day to thrash Frankston Bombers. Jarred Eames booted five goals and Sean Holmes produced some of

his best work with four goals to help their side to a 15.12 (102) to 9.6 (60) victory. Jarryd Douglas also finished with three goals after a few quiet weeks and Jake Mitchell and James McCall played their best games for the season. The match was effectively over at quarter time when the Hillmen led by 27 points at the change. Michael Maiorino booted three for the Bombers while Scott Foster, Aaron Hunter and Nathan Phillips in his first senior game were among the votes. Rosebud’s season is well and truly back on track after it smashed Somerville to the tune of almost 11 goals. The Buds had so much to prove against the Eagles and there were doubts about their ability to cover the ground as well as their opposition. However, the home side was dominant from the opening bounce and led by 50 points at half time. Greg Bentley was the best player on the ground with seven goals while Ben Shultz played his best game for a number of seasons with six majors. A firing Shultz is a scary proposition for opposition clubs. He has booted ten goals in his past two matches. Ryan Spooner and Brenton Payne also proved why they are two of the best midfielders in the caper and Brad McDonald was excellent against his old club.

Rohan Hogenbirk returned to his best after a season-ending knee injury last season and Jake Ryan continued his good form with two majors. At three quarter time on Saturday, Devon Meadows was trailing Dromana by just two straight kicks. Half an hour later, the Tigers had gone on to record a 50 point victory, 11.12 (78) to 3.10 (28). The Tigers booted six goals to two behinds in the final term, Jay Hutchison, Billy Quigley (two goals) and Ash Waterstone dominating. Jesse Dehey and Gavin Kerr were the best of the Panthers, while Pat Harmes and Chris Doria worked tirelessly for all four quarters. Aaron Findlay and Chris Gleeson booted five goals each and Ryan Semmel booted four majors in a best on ground performance for Rye against Tyabb on Saturday. Ben Holmes and Rhett Sutton were also dominant in the Demons 22.18 (150) to 7.8 (50) victory. Jake Anderson booted three majors and Rohan West a couple for the Yabbies and were among the team’s best while Justin Volk, Ash Souter and Justin Rowley in his second game were also hard workers for the Yabbies. The Demons hold down fifth position, four points clear of Hastings, Rosebud and Somerville. The Blues and Buds both have a better percentage than Rye.

Bulls go agonisingly close as Tigers grab a draw on the siren PENINSULA LEAGUE

“This is where the improvement is coming from. We are able to concentrate for longer periods. “What we expect now is that the players have some belief in themselves. Seaford has been right in every game this season and we should have beaten them. We placed ourselves in a position to beat them. “It’s another learning curve for our boys and I don’t think a victory is far away. “At last now we have some points next to our name,” said Coates. The Bulls led by 13 points at half time and by three points at three quarter time. The final score was 10.7 (67) to 9.13 (67). George Angelopolous was outstanding for the Bulls, racking up 25 touches and a couple of goals in the first half. Luke Van Raay had the task on Ben Crowe and did a good job. Tom Wilkinson maintained his good form. Michael Herbert and Kane Taylor were the best of the Tigers. Frankston YCW went into its match against Langwarrin without its best two players, Ash Eames and Anthony Barry. While one of the best forwards in the game, Scott McLeod, was also missing. However, it made little difference as the Stonecats humiliated the

By Toe Punt KARINGAL went within a whisker of winning its first game of the season against Seaford on Saturday at the Bull Pit. Leading from the 10-minute mark of the second quarter, the Bulls looked like they were going to celebrate their first win of the season with just 30 seconds left on the clock. However, the Tigers went into attack for the final time, the ball spilled off the hands of a pack, fell into the arms of Kane Taylor and he converted to level the scores. The final siren sounded a splitsecond after the ball left Taylor’s foot. It was a disappointing result for the Bulls, who played their best game of footy for the season. For the Tigers, it was equally as disappointing. Their chance of playing finals now appear to be shot after they won their previous two games. Karingal coach Stephen Coates said the result felt like a loss. However, although he was disappointed in the end result, Coates still found positives out of the draw. “In previous matches, our younger players were having an impact on matches for five minutes here and five minutes there. Now, with greater experience, they are in the game for longer,” said Coates.

with Karl Lombardozzi were significant in the win. Redlegs coach John Georgiou said “I guess we are back in business”. “I never like to blame injuries or misfortunes for poor form because that’s just footy, but it was good to get a few back on Saturday,” said Georgiou. “Lockwood is a jet. A freak! “To get him back, along with a few others, made a big difference to the way we looked on the footy ground. “I thought we controlled the game for the most part but struggled to score as freely as Edithvale did. “They are a very good side and just kept coming at us.” Edithvale booted the last three goals of the third quarter after the Redlegs lost a couple of players through injury. Angus Scott kicked three goals in the third quarter for the Eagles and they were able to gain the ascendancy, leading by eight points at the last change. “We lost a few in the third and they were able to take advantage of us trying to reshuffle and get things going again,” said Georgiou. “In the last quarter, we were able to win the one on one battles and I thought we fought a bit harder, which was pleasing.” Mathew Clark played his best game for the Eagles, while Markham Johnson and Timmy Mannix also worked hard.

Pines caused the upset of the season, beating Mornington by a goal, 11.10 (76) to 10.10 (70). The Pythons were in control of the match for the majority and deserved to get the four points. Coach Steve Ryan said it was his team’s best four quarter effort for the season. “There is no doubt the conditions played into our hands and they went into the match with a very big side. It was too big I think,” said Ryan. “For the first time this year though, our boys didn’t drop in their concentration. “They have set the standard now in what we can expect in the second half of the season,” he said. Shaun White booted four goals for the Pythons while Chris Guganovic and Nick Wilcox shone. Jackson Calder booted five for the Doggies to be their best, while Warwick Miller and Chris Paxino were also fine players. Bonbeach completed the expected and got the points against Chelsea. In a tight tussle, the Sharks led by six points, 11 points and 12 points at each break, before winning 7.7 (49) to 4.4 (28). Gary Carpenter was Bonbeach’s best for the second week on the trot while Zac Graham and Jayden Attard were superb for the Gulls.

Kangaroos on their own turf, winning 12.8 (80) to 5.6 (36). Tony Lester dominated in his 200th club game (197 in the seconds) while Dale Carroll was left to do as he liked all afternoon with three goals. Dave Bodley also finished with three majors. Langwarrin premiership player Gerard Brown was back for a one-off appearance from Western Australia, however, had little impact. Dan Wehner was clearly the best of the Kangas, along with Michael Parker. Langwarrin don’t have a key defender or key forward across half forward and without them, will not be a challenger to the top sides. The Kangas are the sixth best side in it, behind Bonbeach, YCW, Mornington, Edithvale and Mt Eliza. The Kangas have now lost four in a row and face Mt Eliza in a seasondefining game this weekend. Mt Eliza got its season back on track with a tough, gritty eight point win against Edithvale–Aspendale. It was the return of Scott Lockwood that made all the difference, booting six goals in a best on ground display. Tim Strickland was also back for the Redlegs, as was Sam Gill, while a couple of youngsters who had been playing well previously were also back in the team. Mark Lillie and Ben Lean, along
