TAC praises peninsulaâ€™s leadership in push Towards Zero 7KH7$&SUDLVHVWKH3HQLQVXODÂˇV leadership in push Towards Zero, as the annual Arthurs Seat Challenge fun run, held on the Mornington Peninsula, sees thousands of people raise a sweat, in a bid to lower the number of deaths and serious injuries on our roads. The Transport Accident Commission has again thrown its support behind the Arthurs Seat Challenge, which promotes road safety education for young people and raises money to support the Fit2Drive program. All funds from this event, are channelled back into local secondary schools across the Peninsula and Frankston area, UHPRYLQJWKHĂ€QDQFLDOEXUGHQIRU schools and ensuring all Year 11 students have access to this best practice road safety program. The popular event, held on Sunday November 12, is expected to draw some 2000 participants and is yet another important step in support of the 0RUQLQJWRQ3HQLQVXOD6KLUHÂˇV push to become a Towards Zero municipality. 7$&FKLHIH[HFXWLYHRIĂ€FHU-RH &DODĂ€RUHSUDLVHGWKH0RUQLQJWRQ Peninsula community for continuing to show leadership in 9LFWRULDÂˇVSXVKWRZDUGVDIXWXUH where every journey on our roads is a safe one. â€œThe Mornington Peninsula Shire has embraced a positive and proactive approach to road safety for several years now and the community must be congratulated for initiatives such as the Arthurs 6HDW&KDOOHQJHÂľ0U&DODĂ€RUHVDLG Â´7RZDUGV=HURGHĂ€QHVRXU
Promoting Road Safety: The Annual Arthurs Seat Challenge Fun Run Picture: Yanni approach to saving lives and reducing injuries on our roads and it requires buy-in and commitment from everyone â€“ we all have a role to play and Mornington sets a great example.â€? Last year, 10 people died on Mornington Peninsula roads, half of them were young drivers aged 18 to 25. The Fit2Drive program delivers peer facilitated workshops with Year 11 students in secondary
schools across the state. The program aims to change attitudes and thus reduce risky behaviours for all young road users, including drivers and passengers. With too many young people dying and suffering serious injuries on RXUURDGV0U&DODĂ€RUHVDLGURDG safety education was crucial in shaping the choices young drivers make. â€œFrom 2012 to 2016, on average 21 per cent of all drivers killed
Victorian roads were aged 18 to 25, despite that age group representing around 14 per cent of all licence holders.â€? â€œOur research shows that young drivers are more likely to take risks on the roads and this combined with inexperience and the fact that they are often driving cars without the latest safety features â€“ is a major reason for the over-representation in young driver deaths.â€?
â€œGood driver behaviour is learnt from a young age which is why we have road safety programs like Fit2Drive running in schools across WKHVWDWHÂľ0U&DODĂ€RUHVDLG You can learn more about Towards Zero by visiting www. towardszero.vic.gov.au or register for the Arthurs Seat Challenge at www.arthursseatchallenge.com. au Schools can book a Fit2Drive Workshop by visiting www.f2d.com.au.

‘We’re with you’ SENIOR Sergeant Mick Lamb, of Frankston police, led a police patrol in Young St on Friday to show traders that they will be out in force while road works continue. Here, he speaks with Lucky’s Deli proprietor Lucky Ferraro who is pleased more police will be on the beat curbing anti-social behaviour. Senior Sergeant Lamb said more foot patrols in Young and surrounding streets and lanes would “focus police attention” on the area where trade has been hard hit by the protracted road works. A meeting of about 50 “angry and disappointed” traders two weeks ago at Lucky’s Deli discussed the effects of crime and a perceived lack of safety for traders and shoppers. Picture: Gary Sissons See story page 3.
Push for traders’ emergency rescue package By Stephen Taylor FRANKSTON’S Cr Steve Toms has urged his colleagues to press the state government for an “emergency rescue package to assist traders adversely affected” by the long-running $63 million Young St revitalisation project. He has asked for a report from officers “on the impact of waiving rates or other options for assistance for businesses adversely affected by the [works] in 2017-18, including developing eligibility criteria”. Cr Toms, the deputy mayor, made the push in a successful notice-ofmotion to the 3 July Frankston Council
meeting. It will go back to officers for a report to the 24 July meeting. He later foreshadowed a Thursday 3 August meeting in Young St with senior Frankston police, Hastings MP and small business spokesman Neale Burgess, councillors and traders to push for “appropriate action” on the traders’ crisis. Cr Toms is urging the council to assist traders in Young, Station, Balmoral and Wells St East who are “facing severe financial difficulties” as a result of the ongoing works in Young St which were now expected to finish at the end of October – five months late.

Lucky’s Deli owners Lucky Ferraro said fed-up traders would push for compensation for the loss of trade over delays in the works. “That should be a priority because many traders are suffering from the stress and strain.” Cr Toms wants the council to advocate to South East Water and energy companies for utility payment plans, and to contact owners of affected properties, “where possible meeting with them”, to discuss how they can assist their tenants. Cr Toms’ motion asks that the council meet with Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke “so he can brief councillors
on the current street works situation”, and to put in place an “action plan to directly help traders in the affected areas” of the city centre. He said on social media: “I’m proud to move this notice of motion to support our traders who are doing it really tough as a result of the Young St works.” He said some traders may be suffering a 90 per cent loss of trade during the protracted works. Frankston mayor Cr Brian Cunial said the Young St redevelopment was part of a $63 million state government investment to “revitalise the Frankston
Station precinct – and is one of several major redevelopment projects happening in our City”. “While council is not managing these projects, we are working to stay up to date with their progress and to keep the community informed about what’s happening and how traffic will be impacted,” he said. “I believe the works are expected to be completed in October.” Cr Toms had a different view: “VicRoads promised a May finish but it is clear the works will drag on to mid-November or early December,” he said.

Police boost patrols on Young Street Stephen Taylor firstname.lastname@example.org FRANKSTON police said Wednesday they would be upping their profile in works-besieged Young St and in surrounding streets and lanes. Station Commander Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb said increased foot patrols would â€œfocus their attentionâ€? on the precinct where trade has been hit by the protracted road works. He was speaking after about 50 â€œangry and disappointedâ€? traders met two weeks ago at Luckyâ€™s Deli in Young St to discuss the effects of crime and a perceived lack of safety. â€œCommunication between the police and traders had not been good; it was a crucial issue,â€? said Cr Steve Toms, who organised the meeting. Senior Sergeant Lamb said: â€œIt was clear to me from our meeting that we need to refocus our efforts to the area. â€œYoung St is basically a construction zone, with traders telling us their businesses are struggling and they are under a lot of pressure. â€œWith the removal of the public toilet in Young St an undesirable element were using the back lanes and alcoves behind their businesses as a toilet and an area to deal and use drugs. As a result the traders felt unsafe.â€? The extra foot patrols and resources aim to reassure the traders. â€œA big part of the task for our foot patrol crews is to ensure they engage with the traders each day, so they know we are out
and about and their feeling of safety is improved during these trying times,â€? Senior Sergeant Lamb said. â€œAs the officer-in-charge of the Frankston Police Station I cannot positivity influence the time lines of the Young St redevelopment, but I can help reassure the traders and shoppers and improve their level of safety.â€? He said the results for two weeks in Young St had been â€œencouragingâ€? with 10 arrests for public order offences, theft and warrants of apprehension, and 30 penalty notices for breach of council bylaws. â€œImportantly, the feedback from the traders has been excellent; they tell me seeing the added police presence has really helped them feel safer in their businesses.â€? Senior Sergeant Lamb said the focus on Young St and engagement with the traders would remain at present levels until the streetâ€™s redevelopment was finished â€“ possibly late October. A review would then be done â€œmoving forwardâ€?. Lucky Ferraro, of Luckyâ€™s Deli, said traders supported efforts to boost the police presence in the precinct, and to focus on curbing the methadone trade. He said they would push for compensation for the loss of trade. VicRoads blames delays in the works on water and electricity services being unearthed unexpectedly during excavations. This has required moving utility services and, in some instances, changing original designs.
Eagle eyes: The five-metre high sculpture Sentinel has a new home overlooking Frankstonâ€™s waterfront. Picture: Gary Sissons
Iconic sculptureâ€™s new home THE iconic five-metre high sculpture named Sentinel, inspired by Bunjil, the eaglehawk â€œspirit creatorâ€? of the Aboriginal Kulin nations, has reappeared atop a grassy hill next to the Esplanade overlooking Frankston foreshore. Sentinel was created by artist Bruce Armstrong and installed beside Young St at the intersection of Wells St in 2001. It has been moved for the $13 million Young St streetscape works. Armstrongâ€™s 20-tonne, 25-metre Eagle, made of jarrah and aluminium and also inspired by Bunjil, was
installed at Melbourneâ€™s Docklands the following year. Frankstonâ€™s mayor, Cr Brian Cunial, said Sentinel was a â€œsignificant piece in Frankstonâ€™s public art collection, keeping a watchful eye in Young St for more than 15 yearsâ€?. He said its new location was determined â€œin conjunction with key stakeholdersâ€?. â€œIts new nest is in the Esplanade Reserve in Frankston.â€? Cr Cunial said Sentinel was a â€œfivemetre tall abstract wooden sculpture of
a sea eagle created by sculptor Bruce Armstrongâ€?. Bunjil (also spelt Bundjil) is also at Hastings, outside Willum Warrain, the Aboriginal communityâ€™s gathering place in Pound Rd. It was made by Somers artist Paul Mutimer. Bundjilâ€™s Nest was made by children from Balnarringâ€™s preschool and primary school in 2015. Constructed on the beach, it has been moved to a permanent home in Robinsons Park at Balnarring Beach. Mike Hast
Rental affordability worst on record, driving homelessness NEW rent data shows that Melbourneâ€™s rental affordability is the worst on record, with only 5.7 per cent of all rentals affordable to someone on a low income. In Frankston the figure is one-in-10 rentals being affordable to a person on a low income. Five years ago the figure was one-in-five and 10 years ago nearly seven-in-10. â€œThe [Department of Health and Human Services] report paints a dire picture for low people on a very low income. If youâ€™re poor, there is virtually nowhere left to live, or youâ€™ll be living in extreme poverty just to pay the rent,â€? Council to Homeless Persons CEO Jenny Smith said. The council says the â€œhousing crisisâ€? is driving increased rates of
homelessness, with 45 per cent of clients citing housing issues as the main reason they need help, with family violence being the next main reason. â€œOur housing system is failing [us], and the result is increased homelessness. Thereâ€™s little in the private rental market for low-income households, and not enough social housing to catch people who are being pushed to the edge,â€? Ms Smith said. The council wants state and federal government to change federal housing taxation to â€œallow more people to buy their first home, freeing up rental properties for those on low incomesâ€?. â€œOur housing taxation system favours property investors at the expense of ordinary Australians looking for a place to live,â€? Ms Smith said.
The council is advocating for a â€œmonumental boost to public and community housing to reduce waiting listsâ€?, and to give people on low incomes an â€œalternative to unaffordable private rentalâ€?. â€œPeople pushed out of private rental need a safety net of social housing, and that safety net is totally inadequate,â€? Ms Smith said. â€œCurrently, 35,000 Victorians are waiting for public and community housing, with most expected to wait years.â€? The council is urging the state government to better use planning mechanisms, such as Inclusionary Zoning, so new developments include minimum levels of social housing for those on low incomes. The peak body says that the state
governmentâ€™s recent social housing announcements were encouraging, but that â€œâ€Świthout leadership and ac-
tion at the federal level, the states are fighting the battle with one hand tied behind their back.â€?

Police renew hunt for local man over assault Stephen Taylor firstname.lastname@example.org A MAN “familiar with the streets and lanes of Seaford” is believed responsible for an attack on a woman as she walked home along Railway Pd, 3.10am, Saturday 1 April. The Sexual Crimes Squad has released CCTV footage of a man they wish to speak to in relation to the sexual assault on the 19-year-old near Seaford North Reserve. See the video at vicpolicenews.com.au/system/files/ media-centre/Seaford%201.mp4 It is believed the woman had stopped briefly near bushes at a church car park when she was attacked from behind. The man then ran from the scene and the victim walked home and called police. He is described as having a tanned complexion with brown hair, thin build and an Australian accent. Detective Sergeant Rod Neylan said police believed the man had local knowledge of the area. “After the incident [he] has run across the reserve, which has a number of small fences separating it into sections, making it difficult to cross easily or quickly,” he said. “We also know he ran down a very small alley near the north-west corner of the reserve and this alleyway is so small that we believe he would have had to have known previously it was there. “Whether he lives in the area or has previously lived in this area we don’t know, but we do suspect that is the case based on what appears to be

an intimate knowledge of these back streets. “I’m urging people who live near that reserve to take a look at these images and think hard about whether this is someone you know, someone who lives in the area now, has lived there before, or even someone who worked in the area. “There is someone out there who knows who this man is.”
At the time of the incident the man was wearing jeans with a belt and a dark coloured t-shirt. He has a distinctive mole on the left side of his cheek or chin and small teeth. Earlier this year police released a digital composite image of a man they wish to speak to and they continue to appeal to anyone who can identify that man to come forward. The CCTV footage shows the man
walking along Railway Pd, near Hayman Av, 2.55am, before he came across the woman at the south-west corner of the reserve about 3.10am. Detective Neylan said police were also yet to recover all of the victim’s belongings. “We’d ask that people double check their backyards, including any outbuildings, such as garages and on the roof of those buildings, in the event any items have been thrown
there by the offender,” he said. “Any items that can be recovered might provide a vital clue.” An information caravan set up outside the community centre on Station St, 28 April, received a large number of reports from the public. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic.com.au

Native seduction at the gardens ROYAL Botanic Gardens Botanical Illustrators Group is holding an exhibition of botanical art depicting the relationship between plants and their pollinators next month. Native Seduction will be on display daily in the visitor centre of the Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne during August. Works by several of their tutors is included. A variety of mediums and techniques are used, including watercolour, coloured pencils, pen and ink and oil. All paintings are for sale, with
commission from sales going to support the gardens. “Botanical art requires careful observation of the subject which is then depicted as a true representation of the plant and, in this case, the insect, bird or mammal that pollinates the plant,” coordinator Margaret Holloway said. An artist will be in residence each Sunday, 10am-2pm. Visitors are invited to get up close and ask questions while watching how the artist develops the painting. Also on

TRAIN travellers between Frankston and the Melbourne CBD will see some friendly faces along their journey, as the Faces of Frankston photographic exhibition rolls on through. A whole train will be used to host a range of remarkable photographs showing the faces of people connected to the city, with links to find out more about their stories. International photographer Richard Simpkin’s Locals of Frankston exhibition brings together a collection of images featuring traders and students. They showcase Frankston as an ideal place to live, work, shop, invest and enjoy time in, the council says. The mayor Cr Brian Cunial said: “As our city undergoes a major transformation with numerous investor activities, we are proud to present the Faces of Frankston, a series of exhibitions celebrating the everyday people who make our city great. “These locals all have their own unique stories and experiences, but share one thing in common: an absolute passion for our city.” To celebrate the Faces of Frankston an on-board roving gig will be held on the 4.04pm Frankston-bound train departing platform 8 at Flinders St station, Thursday 27 July. The cost is the same as a train ticket. frankstonfaces.com. Share and add to these stories using #frankstonfaces. Simpkin’s exhibition Locals of Frankston is showing at the Frankston Arts Centre until 21 October. It will be complemented by portraits projected onto the Frankston Arts Centre flytower.

We’re paying more and more for less and less PLANNING and population issues are back in the spotlight after the state government changed planning laws to allow three-storey houses to be built in the region, sparking concern about overdevelopment. Frankston-based sociologist and author Sheila Newman sounds a warning about unrestricted population growth, land prices and development of food production land. By Sheila Newman AS a fig leaf response to growing unrest about exponential population growth, governments and developers are now suggesting “decentralisation” is the cure for all that ails us from overpopulation. The current plan to “create” (mostly via massive immigration) eight new cities between Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney is a foretaste of the growth lobby’s desire to aim for a population of 100 million in Australia and perhaps 50 major cities within 80 to 100 years. This super growth would be financed entirely by speculating on land costs, with massive profits falling mostly to a few already obscenely rich developers. However, as usual the growth lobby conveniently disregards water, agriculture, and natural and resource environmental costs. Losing land in the countryside to more houses, schools, hospitals, shopping centres and more is no less significant than it is in our current peri-urban areas. As for ongoing adjustments to the urban growth boundary, rezoning rural land to urban residential is threatening Melbourne’s peri-urban food bowl – Werribee, Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, Casey-Cardinia. Up to 50 per cent of Australia’s vegetables are grown on the urban fringe of Mel-
bourne and 17 per cent of Victorian fruit. Greater than 80 per cent of some types of fruit and vegetables are produced. Production is at $1.3-1.6 billion a year, and supports 6000 jobs. But once converted to housing, the land and jobs are lost forever, entrenching a reliance on imported foods. Since the Menzies government era, the privatisation of land production has evolved into a system of packing more and more people into smaller and smaller areas. It multiplies the dollar value of the land, while massively diminishing the land per person. So most of us pay more and more for less and less. Meanwhile a minority profit obscenely from the growing misery of their fellow citizens and residents. This is essentially what drives the policies for mass immigration in Australia. The costs to business are horrendous (unless they are corporations that invest in land and mortgages). For instance, manufacturers have to pay for their own accommodation, for their business premises, and for salaries that will permit their employees to afford rent or mortgages. These costs ruin many businesses and make us globally uncompetitive since our land, housing and rent costs are among the highest in the world. Abolition of state industrial award systems, redefinition of most state
CBDs as “regions in need of immigration”, and Prime Minister John Howard’s use of the Corporations clause in the Constitution means it is now possible, for the first time since Federation, to import cheap labour to undermine Australian wages. Employers can exploit cheap imported labour, but labour must pay very high rent and mortgages, pitting employers against workers and citizens against citizens. It’s beginning to feel like a return to Dickensian living conditions or feudalism will be the ultimate outcome. Meanwhile, these unreasonable, anti-social land costs (and the population growth-associated inflation of water and power costs) make the pension and welfare system unaffordable, but the problem is then blamed on “dependency ratios” – too many
unemployed people, too many old people, etc. However, if we greatly reduced invited economic immigration (which all the states advertise for – see Victoria’s www.liveinvictoria.vic.gov.au), pensions would be adequate to live on and could possibly even be reduced, and working people would not have to enslave themselves to life-long mortgages. It would also be relatively affordable to start manufacturing businesses and employ people. Twenty-five years ago, when I became worried about population growth in Australia, the plight of wildlife and the loss of green and wild spaces were accepted. Empathy for the environment is disappearing under the walls of masonry and concrete paving of our once rural areas. As much as it pains me, it is understandable to lose em-
pathy for the environment when there isn’t much left to empathise with. It’s as if wildlife is completely off the radar, and caring about wildlife habitat is just an indulgent wistful pastime. The extremes to which we are now pushed socio-economically and the urbanisation of our values have reinforced our human-centric behaviours – and it is very depressing. Presently, those who hope to protect where we live are relying on a “community engagement” model that is past its use-by date. Previously, when a development was announced, we could have our say about it. Sometimes we even managed to stop outrageous proposals – or at least win major concessions. However, the latest proposed changes to the Victorian Planning Scheme, and many that have already occurred while we have been asleep at the wheel, will completely strip away any rights or tools we thought we had to protect our homes and amenity. The ground has shifted under us so we need, somehow, to be more proactive. A good place to start could be a residents’ bill of rights. Sheila Newman is an evolutionary sociologist and editor of articles on energy, population, land use planning, and resources as well as a news site called candobetter.net. Her books include The Final Energy Crisis (Pluto, UK) and the Demography, Territory and Law series (Countershock Press) on ecological population systems and political outcomes.

City’s cash adds strength to biosphere Keith Platt email@example.com THE future of the Western Port Biosphere Foundation has been strengthened with a decision by Frankston Council to again become a financial member. Earlier this year the foundation was facing closure as money ran out. However, the state government stepped in with $20,000 from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning “to assist us in working through our cash flow issues”, executive officer of the biosphere Cecelia Witton said in an editorial in the July edition of foundation’s The Connector newsletter. “We welcome [the decision by Frankston Council] and look forward
to working to strengthen our relationship with Frankston City Council and our other biosphere councils,” Ms Witton stated. The biosphere’s Growing Connections Project ended on 30 June and Ms Witton said a final report would be complete by mid-August. She said recent foundation activities had included a planting day with Downs Estate Community Group on a reserve north of Seaford Wetlands. The hundreds of trees and shrubs would help protect the wetlands and create a biolink across the north of the site. Ms Witton said 120 passengers had joined three bus tours with the Bunurong Land Council “which focused on the landscapes of Casey and Cardinia, and Bass Coast … learning a little about our local Indigenous culture
and some of the important sites for the Indigenous community and how these were used”. The third annual Western Port Biosphere Biodiversity Forum on 30 June was attended by about 100 people from government agencies, community groups, and the public. Keynote speaker Vanessa Craigie, policy officer from DELWP, outlined the new statewide biodiversity plan “and how we can all get involved in delivering the desired outcomes”, Ms Witton said. With Frankston’s continued absence from the biosphere, the remaining four members – Mornington Peninsula, Bass Coast, Cardinia, and Casey councils – were earlier this year forced bailed out the ailing organisation, which would have run out of money by April.
At that stage Ms Witton said the biosphere foundation had survived a “hectic” few months. In a bid to secure future funding, a memorandum of understanding was drawn up between the biosphere and the four remaining member councils. Frankston had withdrawn its $20,000 annual commitment four years previously, adding to the biosphere’s financial woes. Ms Witton told an extraordinary general meeting in January that the organisation was running out of money before a vote was taken to give the board of directors the power to wind up the “company”. That option was not needed. The 2142-square kilometre Mornington Peninsula and Western Port Biosphere Reserve – one of 14 in Australia – includes five local government
areas and French Island. Listed under the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) “Man and the Biosphere” program, it includes national and marine parks, rural agriculture and urban growth areas. Western Port is also listed under the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International significance. Biospheres are described as being “sites of excellence that seek to reconcile conservation of biological and cultural diversity and economic and social development through partnerships between people and nature”. Although they have no statutory powers, biospheres are seen as being “ideal learning sites to test and demonstrate innovative approaches to sustainable development and conservation on a regional scale”.

Police patrol Arrest over Rolex incident A FRANKSTON man was last week charged with attempted robbery and unlawful assault after allegedly trying to steal an expensive watch from a Frankston CBD pawn shop, 4.10pm, Monday 3 July. The 26-year-old engaged in a “violent struggle” with two staff members when allegedly trying to steal the $10,000 Rolex from a display cabinet and ran out of the store. He was arrested at home and appeared at Frankston Magistrates’ Court for a bail hearing Friday. He will reappear at a date to be fixed.
‘Coward punch’ victim in hospital A CARRUM Downs man is facing a string of charges after allegedly punching a man coming out of a takeaway shop in the Nepean Highway, near the Grand Hotel, Frankston, 3am, Saturday 8 July. The man, 26, allegedly “coward punched” a 32-year-old Narre Warren South man, causing him to fall backwards, hitting his head on the footpath. The man was knocked out cold and taken by ambulance to Frankston Hospital where he received four stitches. Detective Senior Constable Bernard Dowling, of Frankston CIU, said the alleged attacker was parading around in front of the shop with his pants down prior to the alleged assault. He then allegedly confronted the victim and punched him to the head with a clenched fist. The man was arrested Tuesday night. He has been charged with intentionally causing injury, recklessly causing injury, drunk in a public place, and behaving in an indecent manner. He was bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court in September.
‘Illegals’ minding crop house TWO Vietnamese nationals were arrested last week allegedly minding 200 marijuana plants at a Frankston “crop house”.
Detective Senior Constable Flyn Loughlin, of Frankston CIU, said the plants in various stages of growth were being tended by a woman, 24, who is an illegal immigrant, and a man, 25, who is here on a bridging visa. An electrical bypass system was stealing power from the grid. The pair was charged with cultivating commercial quantities of cannabis, possessing cannabis and other matters. They appeared before an out-of-sessions court, Tuesday, and were remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court in October. Cannabis plants are valued at around $1000 each, depending on their size and quality. Police are investigating the house’s ownership details.

Stolen car rams police
THE driver of a stolen car attempted to ram an unmarked police car lying in wait for them outside a Seaford house, 2am, Friday 7 July. Police parked in Hummerstone Rd, Seaford, and awaited back-up until the occupants of the house came outside, saw their car and drove at them. The police took evasive action and, with help from the Air Wing, chased the car along Seaford Rd where police had deployed ‘stop sticks’. These failed to stop the car which drove down the wrong side of the road with its headlights turned off and was last seen speeding away on Frankston-Dandenong Rd. Police are seeking a 29-year-old Frankston man over the incident.

Channel 10’s bumpy ride started at Mt Eliza By Howard Bull NETWORK Ten is again creating its own news after announcing a big loss and its billionaire shareholders Lachlan Murdoch, Bruce Gordon and James Packer withdrawing support for a $250 million guaranteed loan. Ten Network Holdings went into voluntary administration mid-June, which would have dismayed its creator, the Mt Eliza resident and leading businessman Sir Reginald Ansett of Ansett Airlines fame. Previous financial difficulties included going into receivership in 1989, which ended when Westpac bought the station and later sold it to a consortium headed by Canadian group CanWest. The station’s genesis occurred in the early 1960s when the Australian government announced it would grant more commercial TV licences in a number of capital cities, including Melbourne. Reginald Myles Ansett, yet to be knighted, was renowned for phoning senior Ansett Transport Industries executives at their homes after he had enjoyed a fine dinner and his favourite whisky at his home overlooking Port Phillip, one of the largest waterfront properties on the peninsula with its beach house, stables, gardens and a lake designed by Edna Walling. An executive director was surprised when he answered his phone one night and was told by his boss that ATI would apply for the Melbourne licence and he should establish a task force to create a proposal. Ansett believed ATI should diversify and not be too reliant on its airline operations for cash flow. This policy was pursued vigorously. During his reign as managing director, the ATI empire operated, in addition to Ansett Airlines, five intrastate airlines, 26 hotels, Hayman Island resort, Pioneer Tours with 284 luxury coaches, National Instrument Company, Wridgways Removals, Avis car rental, Ansair coach builders, and Ansett Road Freight. ATI was a major shareholder of Diners Club and an insurance company. When ATI closed in 2002 it comprised 47 related companies. Ansett had good reason to diversify – in the 1960s ATI was under constant pressure in the air and from the Labor Party. A Labor government had created its own airline, Trans Australia Airlines, to fight the free enterprise Ansett Airlines. Labor supporters described Ansett as the chief advocate of free enterprise, the living justification of capitalism, and categorised him as ruthless,

Heigh-ho: It’s off to work by helicopter for Reg Ansett from his home at Mt Eliza to a pontoon on the Yarra River at Melbourne. (Inset) Reg Ansett was on the cover of The Bulletin, a leading business and politics magazine, in 1963 as his empire expanded.
a scheming go-getter, the epitome of a big businessman. They wanted him brought down, despite ATI having many small shareholders and thousands of staff. He was renowned in Mt Eliza for travelling between home and his office in one of the airline’s helicopter. The chopper would stay at his property overnight and its pilot, Captain Max Holyman, who was Australia’s first licensed helicopter pilot, lived nearby. In 1963 ATI was awarded the additional Melbourne licence and Channel O was born (“oh” not zero). The day the announcement was made a media conference was held in the ATI boardroom, which was packed with media intrigued by ATI’s good fortune. The victory was based on a written submission that would not have succeeded nowadays. Many TV viewers believed there was excessive violence on TV, including many westerns such as Bonanza, Wyatt Earp, and Gunsmoke. The submission said Channel O would screen religious programs as
well as a plethora of shows for women and children. A journalist asked Ansett to name his favourite TV program. His oneword reply was: “Westerns.” There was a deathly silence, but fortunately the media generally had a high regard for Ansett and did not pursue an obvious opportunity. A television station was built at Nunawading. Initially it transmitted test patterns and it was reported that Ansett would have long stints sitting in front of his TV at home, watching the test pattern. The first public transmission was in August 1964. Each Monday morning he would arrive at the studio in his helicopter and voice his opinions to an attentive general manager. (In January 1980, the station changed to Channel 10.) In 1969 Ansett was knighted and became Sir Reginald. A decade later ATI came under pressure from corporate raiders after the company announced it had lost $9.4
million on its investment in Associated Securities Limited. It was the only major business mistake made by Sir Reginald and it created repercussions. Some business people decided it would be timely to take over ATI. Two colourful Perth identities, Robert Holmes a Court and Alan Bond, separately nibbled at this corporate meal. In 1979 Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation and transport magnate Sir Peter Abeles, who operated TNT, each bought 50 per cent of ATI. Murdoch operated Channel 10 and Abeles was responsible for the rest, particularly freight operations. Sir Reginald remained as chairman only. He was described as one of Australia’s finest businessmen. Later generations applying for positions are told a tertiary degree is required. Sir Reginald obtained his Intermediate Certificate at night school and started work as a timber cutter before buying a car to carry people and parcels. Sir Reginald had developed a strong corporate culture at ATI. His execu-
tives knew him as RM and his army of staff was very loyal to him. This all changed when Sir Reginald lost control of the company in 1979. The airline was placed into administration in 2001 after suffering financial collapse due to two decades of doubtful business decisions. It was a sad end to a great Australian company built by a man who started business in 1931 with a secondhand car carrying passengers and small items of freight between Ballarat and Maryborough. It could be said that Sir Reginald still “resides” on the Mornington Peninsula – his ashes were dropped from a helicopter over his Mt Eliza property after he died in December 1981 at age 72. Howard Bull was a public relations consultant to Ansett for 20 years from the late 1960s to late 1980s. On the peninsula he is best known as the former owner of the Armoured Military Vehicle Collection at Boneo, and former CEO of Mt Martha Community Learning Centre at Mt Martha House.

Support needed to stop state’s planning changes The support of residents and property owners is required to stop 11-metre high, multiple three-storey developments from being built and becoming the norm in many areas on the Mornington Peninsula. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is asking for support to oppose the state government’s residential planning changes (“Shire call-up against planning changes”, The News, 4/7/17). Under the changes, suddenly without warning, property owners and residents may find that they will loose their views or have an ugly development overlooking their back yards. They may not have to be notified or be able to object, and this is deplorable when they have already had to comply with the previous height limits. It will also be a major setback for many of the peninsula’s areas and townships, which are different to Melbourne’s urban development because of the views to the bays, ocean and countryside, which provide a much-needed change to the densely populated, boring and concreted inner suburbs. It is why we live here and why thousands of tourists, day visitors and holidaymakers come to the area. The economy of the peninsula is heavily reliant on this difference. Support the council and oppose the changes by completing the petition at “Become a Peninsula Protector” on the Peninsula Speaks website: www.peninsulaspeaks.org or email: info@ peninsulaspeaks.org.au Alan Nelsen, McCrae Action Group
Freeway noise, safety I refer to VicRoads’ plans to install wire safety barriers along Mornington Peninsula Freeway
from Mt Martha to Rosebud. While I welcome this safety initiative, VicRoads’ justification for the project is the high number of crashes, which is the result of the huge increase in traffic along this section of the freeway. This is the very reason we need noise barriers instead along the freeway and an overpass at Jetty Rd, Rosebud. VicRoads’ testing has confirmed over many years that noise levels are above the acceptable level. I urge the state government to accept its own agency’s advice and install the noise barriers as part of the wire safety barrier upgrade to the freeway as well as addressing the urgent need for an overpass at Jetty Rd. Martin Dixon, MP for Nepean
Unionised government Have you ever wondered why the Andrews state government will not distance itself from the CFMEU, no matter how rude, crude and unattractive the union is? Figures from the Australian Electoral Commission give the answer: this union has donated $3.027 million to the Victorian Labor Party since 1988, $627,154 in the past two years alone. This state (called the People’s Republic of Victoria by some) has a government in thrall to its union masters. Think about it. Peter Grey, Rye
Waiting for the bus In 2009 politician Johan Scheffer claimed the Brumby Labor government’s transport plan was good for the Mornington Peninsula. Sure,
Fire brigades from Mornington, Mount Martha and Mount Eliza attended a house fire at Wilgul Way in Mornington on Friday 14 July. Smoke was issuing from the second storey of the building when fire services arrived but it was quickly brought under control. The building was unoccupied at the time of the fire.
we have a rail line to Hastings and Stony Point (which we had anyway) and the freeway to bypass Frankston, but nothing has changed for the vast majority of peninsula residents. It still takes 75 minutes by bus from Rye to Frankston; still no express bus service; still not enough buses and long, long waits; and still the fact one must own a car to get anywhere at a reasonable time. Over the years there have been many plans by both [major party] governments that have all amounted to sycophantic ramblings. I go back to the early 1940s, when it took 80 minutes from Frankston train station to Rye. If politicians really cared about us they could have a second, faster bus service with stops at Blairgowrie, Rye, Tootgarook, Rosebud and Dromana, and then express to Frankston, leaving Portsea every hour, ditto ex-Frankston. “Waiting for the spark from heaven to fall” (Matthew Arnold).

New hospital offers in excess of 200 new employment opportunities A CAMPAIGN will begin next week to recruit in excess of 200 new caregivers to the new St John of God Berwick Hospital. The existing hospital employs 387 caregivers. These numbers are set to grow once the new hospital, under construction, opens its doors on January 18th 2018. Job opportunities will be advertised from July 17th for four weeks. A registration of interest portal was created on the hospitalâ€™s website in late 2016 for those interested in gaining employment. Over 2000 individuals registered. The recruitment marketing campaign including social media, radio, print and internal promotions will capture the essence of what it is to be a caregiver at St John of God Berwick, including a unique sense of compassionate care that the hospital is extremely proud of. It is hoped that this will assist in attracting a high quality of applicants with the right cultural fit for the organisation. Roles available will include a wide variety of clinical, non-clinical and support vacancies across a variety of days and shifts (including casual) St John of God Berwick Hospital is an employer of choice with a host of benefits on offer for successful applicants. It is estimated that there will be approximately 200 employment opportunities across the hospital including both clinical and non-clinical opportunities. Hospital management
are pleased to be able to provide such a wealth of new employment opportunities to the local community and to provide the chance for local residents to seek fulfilling and meaningful work closer to home. Currently more than 70 per cent of our community travel outside the region for employment.
Local councils believe this is having a significant impact on families. In fact, the new hospital will make St John of God Berwick one of the largest employers in the Casey Cardinia region. New doctors will also be recruited to the new facility with the introduction of new services including an
intensive care unit, cardiac care and a cardiac/vascular catheter laboratory. Over the past 12 months the hospitalâ€™s Business Development team has engaged with their current specialist doctors to identify those who are interested in increasing their work at the hospital.
Discussion with a number of new medical specialists has also occurred and we look forward to introducing our new doctors to the community. Applicants who require further information or wish to view employment opportunities should visit sjog. org.au/berwickcareers
Now Recruiting Our new hospital (located at 75 Kangan Drive, Berwick) will open on January 18th 2018.

Taking time to get your tax right TAX time has kicked off and the ATO is reminding taxpayers to take their time to get it right. Assistant Commissioner Kath Anderson said 2.8 million people lodged their tax return in July last year, which is 22 per cent of all tax returns lodged for 2015-16. “We know that some taxpayers like to get in early and lodge in the first month of tax time, but our analysis shows that if you lodge in July, you’re far more likely to make a mistake by leaving out some of your income,” Ms Anderson said. “By mid-August we have pre-filled most of the data from employers, banks, government agencies and other third parties. Waiting until this information is available will help you avoid mistakes.” “For many people waiting until August means all they have to do is double-check the information we have pre-filled, enter any deductions and then hit submit.”
Ms Anderson said taxpayers don’t need to get into a rush to lodge their tax returns early. “It’s great to see taxpayers eager to finalise their returns, but it’s your responsibility to make sure you declare all your income. This includes income from any cash jobs, the sharing
economy, your second job, foreign sources, employee share schemes and capital gains from the disposal of shares and property.” “Our systems are great at finding errors in tax returns, and if we have to investigate something further in your tax return.” Ms Anderson said people can choose to lodge using the ATO’s online lodgment tool myTax, which is fast, easy and secure, or they can lodge with a registered tax agent. “If you have been using the myDeductions tool, which is available in the ATO app, to save and store your deductions, you can upload that data as well without the need for physical receipts. Last year over 55,000 people uploaded their deductions to myTax or their tax agent, and 9 out of 10 of them told us they intend to use it again this year. For more information on how to lodge, visit ato.gov.au/lodgeonline and to find out about myDeductions, visit ato.gov.au/mydeductions.

IMMERSE yourself in the absolute charm of this storybook cottage set in delightful Red Hill. At the front of the home is a long timber verandah that affords a rural outlook, and the fenced 707 square metre block, that tapers to a point in the east corner, is alive with lush native ferns and succulents that are guarded by a stand of tall gum trees. To the side is a tandem double carport which leads through to a single garage. A variety of timbers have been used to create a
wondrous open plan living zone with the welcoming space greatly accentuated in size by the soaring pitched ceiling. Incorporating a lovely lounge room with wood heater and air-conditioner, there is a dining space that adjoins the kitchen which features a cosy breakfast bar with a beautiful thick slab of timber and two rustic copper basins that are an absolute highlight. Down the hall past the separate laundry and bathroom are two good-sized bedrooms and a smaller
third that would serve as a study or nursery. Upstairs is a versatile mezzanine level perfect for a large fourth bedroom or rumpus room. There is wonderful potential here for a charming home away from home where you want nothing more from a winter escape than to curl up in front of a wood heater and enjoy all the superb eateries, wineries and cafes of Red Hill.

A mid-career change enabled Pippa Hanson to reinvent herself as a co-founder and award-winning entrepreneur in her role as managing director of The Sports Injury Clinic. She has leveraged her massive success by sharing her positive story with female business owners, executive leaders and young entrepreneurs. As a business owner, wife and mother it is not surprising that her mantra is â€œGood health is your wealthâ€?. Without good health you have to adjust and potentially not live life to your fullest. The impact on spending time with family, friends, sport/hobbies and work is impacted with injury and poor health.
â€œOur team is as important as our clients and their health and wellbeing is always front of mind,â€? said Pippa. â€œWhen our team are the best version of themselves they provide exceptional care and treatment for our clients. Life happens and it is how we manage life that provides our happiness and successes. Invest in your health to live your life to your fullest potential.â€?

PWR Consulting AS a long term HR and Workplace Safety consultant for large companies, it was a natural progression for Rhiannon Pilton to begin her own business, starting PWR Consulting Group eight years ago. â€œI began the business after working in the industry for many years on staff in HR. I could see there was a need for a consulting group that focused on HR and safety issues for small to large companies. Often smaller businesses donâ€™t think they need a HR and safety person but that is a myth.

MicMacs Oriental Grocerâ€™ I created â€˜MicMacs Oriental Grocerâ€™ almost 2 years ago.

IN BUSINESS Frankston Auction Mart SINCE 1968 people have come from all around the state to visit the wonderful world of treasures at Frankston Auction Mart. For the past 7 years that tradition has continued with owners Michaela Duthil and David Wilson having taken over the helm, continuing to supply a huge range of quality new and used furniture, ExDisplay, vintage and antiques. I came from a large International company in administration and I didnâ€™t want to go back into the corporate world. I was looking for ideas to start my own business and that when FAM came along. David worked with the previous owners for ten years. After leaving for a short while, he came back
and the opportunity came up to buy FAM which is an iconic business. With his retail background and mine in Admin, we decided to take the plunge and go for it.

Tru Opportunity Op Shop FIVE years ago if someone would have told me that I would be running my own Op Shop at 44 years of age, instead of being a scientist, I would have told them they were dreaming. Never did I think that I would have the courage to start this journey, but here I am! It took the death of my father two years ago and the unconditional support of my husband, mother and three children to spur me on, to take a chance, to realize that life is too short NOT to be doing the things we love to do. What I loved to do was work in an Op Shop (had been volunteering at Wilson Road Op Shop on my day off), be community minded, recycling goods to help the environment
and to raise money for those who desperately need it. And so....Tru Opportunity was born. One year ago, on 25th July, we opened our doors - after overcoming quite a few obstacles - and have not looked back. Being tucked away in an industrial estate, we are a â€œhidden gemâ€? but once discovered, people are not disappointed. People feel encouraged to return time and time again to donate and shop as all those who donate goods, get to nominate the charities that we support. Its tiring work, but I absolutely LOVE what I do, the volunteers we have and the awesome customers that continue to show us loyalty.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...
Mr Leadbetter opens fish shop in Frankston Compiled by Cameron McCullough MR C. J. Leadbetter notifies in another column that he intends opening a fish shop in Frankston on Saturday next and will keep a constant supply of fish, &c. Customers waited on twice a week. *** THE fortnightly Red Cross Social held at Tyabb July 14th was as usual a great success and favoured with fine weather. The evening opened with a short program, followed by competition which caused great amusement then dancing and supper. The musical items were:– Pianoforte duet, Mr and Miss Steer; song, Mr A Denham; song, Mrs Woodhouse; song, Mr Russell Denham; song, Mrs Roe; song, Miss Freda Denham. Miss Lily Slocombe and Mr Russell Denham acted as accompanists and Mr G. Gibson provided music for the dance. The takings were about £2 2s. *** WORD was received from the Red Cross Central Depot during the week urging that there should be no slackening in making the particular garment that Tyabb make a specialty of. At the Central Depot they find great difficulty in keeping up the supply of these garments, so all workers are asked to continue as before without slackening. *** THE 19th Annual Public Meeting of the Tyabb Hall was held June 4th ‘17. The chairman R. Maclaurin occupied the chair. The minutes of the previous public meeting were read and adopted. The annual report was read and the balance sheet submitted showing a
credit balance of £7 10s. The following officers were elected:–K - W. Slocombe was reelected secretary at a salary of £2 2s. R. Mair re-elected treasurer at a salary of 10/6 and G. T. Slocombe caretaker £10. Members of committee to fill vacancy caused by effluxion of time:–R. Maclaurin, F. A. Oates. W. J. Clark, J. Bake and Cr. W. Longmuir to fill vacancies caused by non attendance of members. *** THE following letter of thanks to those who so kindly helped to make the concert held at Langwarrin in aid of the funds of the War Relief Fund of the Education Department has been received by the Head Teacher and has been handed to us for publication.– Dear Miss Gillard.– would you be good enough to convey to all the workers in connection with your recent effort on behalf of the British Red Cross Appeal, the best appreciation of the Central Executive. Those who remain at home can do much for the men behind the firing line, and you can feel assured that your co-operation does much to help strengthen the supplies in this most noble cause. With best wishes, on behalf of the Central Executive, I am, yours faithfully, May Cox, Organizing Secretary. *** A CHEQUE for £3 15s was handed to the “Wattle” Club this week, from the local Red Cross society. This sum had been obtained for entertaining soldiers and as the “Wattle” Club were entertaining soldiers so often, it was decided by the Red Cross
to hand their money over to the Club. A cheque for £2 2s was also received from Mr C. Tait. These donations are highly appreciated. *** THE ‘Wattle’ Club will hold their second anniversary plain and fancy dress ball on Wednesday next, when every thing points to its being even more successful than last year’s function. Good prizes are offered and Di Gigg’s band has been engaged. *** WORK sent in from Mt Eliza Red Cross Branch to the Frankston Red Cross year ending July 17th 1917 – 20 shirts, 12 pillow cases. 6 suits pyjamas, 13 scarves, 4 prs mittens, 24 prs socks, 6 prs bed socks, 1 washer, 2 undershirts. *** Frankston Court of. Petty Sessions. Monday, July 9th, 1917. Before Messrs Williams, Oates Grant and Crawford J’s.P. TRAVELLING WITHOUT A TICKET. Charles W. Risely of Crib Point was charged by Joseph Dean, a railway officer, with travelling by rail, between Melbourne and Frankston, on 12th May last, without having ticket entitling him to do so. Defendant pleaded not guilty. Porter Ward, of Frankston, deposed that Risely, when asked for his ticket, denied that he had travelled by train, and afterwards, gave a wrong name. He had given considerable trouble. Defendant said he paid his fare to Carrum, but came to Frankston as it was raining; he had lost his ticket at Carrum; he admitted giving a wrong name.
The Bench held the charge proved and fined defendant 20s with 12s 6d costs. DISPUTED DEBT CLAIM. Albert Shannon sued John Bedcock for £7 17s 6d on account of groceries etc sold and delivered. Mr Cook appeared for complainant in the absence of Mr Utber. Defendant, who conducted his own case claimed that he had already paid part of the amount claimed but was unable to produce receipts bearing out his assertion. As defendant is very deaf, great difficulty was experienced by the Bench and Court officials in dealing with the case. Albert Shannon and William Hyland gave evidence in support of the claim. Defendant and his daughter and son contended that certain amounts had been paid off but they had not received receipts. The PM said that in the absence of receipts no notice could be taken of the defence. Order for the full amount with 16s 6d costs, in default distress. CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. Const. E. C. Ryan charged Guy Gellibrand Jennings, of Seaford, with “that at Seaford, between the month of December 1916 and the 6th day of June 1917, he did act towards a certain animal, to wit, a cow, in a manner involving cruelty, contrary to the Police Offences Act 1615”. Mr Cook, Mornington, conducted the prosecution for the Animals Protection Society. Defendant pleaded not guilty and conducted his own case. Mr Cook informed the Court that
about last Xmas one of defendant’s cows fell off a bridge and broke her hind leg, at the hock. Defendant kept the animal, which was hopelessly injured, for six months in an open paddock, in an endeavour to fatten her and sell her to a butcher. On June 3rd, Sgt. Bennett, of Moonee Ponds, who was on leave at Seaford, noticed the injured cow which was hopping about endeavouring to graze. The animal was in a very emaciated condition and fell down several times. The Sergeant told defendant to destroy her. On 6th of June Const. Ryan and Inspector Wilmott, of the Animals Protection Society, inspected the cow. The Constable shot the cow with his revolver. Counsel contended that it was gross cruelty to keep the beast alive in her crippled state. Sergt. Bennett, Inspector Wilmott and Const. Ryan gave evidence. The constable stated that defendant was most courteous to him and gave him every assistance. Defendant stated that he made every effort to cure the cow and had fed and watered her constantly. This was admitted by the prosecution. The P.M. said that a case of a cruelty had been proved. It was not a bad case. Defendant had done his best according to his ideas but it was cruel to keep the cow alive at all, however the penalty would be a light one. Fined 10s with £2 10s costs. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 21 July 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES
Smile! Camera catastrophes and other conundrums By Stuart McCullough TALK about unlucky. You’d think that I’d broken a mirror while walking underneath a ladder, cutting a cake during which I touched the plate with the knife just as a black cat stumbled across my path. I’m talking seriously unfortunate. Indeed, fortune has not smiled upon me so much as it has bared its bloody fangs in my direction. The evidence is plain – I am never going to be accused of being conventionally handsome. Or unconventionally handsome, for that matter. Fact is, the wind changed and this is the face I’m stuck with. I’ve never been one to gaze into mirrors. It’s not that I’m shy; it’s more that I just don’t trust the guy I see in there. He’s kinda funny looking. For that reason, I’ve always avoided Facebook because it focusses on a part of my anatomy that I’d much sooner ignore. That said, my knuckles are (I believe) exquisite, and it’s a tragedy that there’s no ‘Knucklebook’ to which I can flock and display my wares to virtual friends. Then there’s the index finger on my left hand which, according to consensus, is truly a thing of beauty to which songs should be sung and sonnets devoted. But index fingers don’t really get the recognition they deserve. That’s because in this somewhat shallow world, it’s all about the face. Some people are photogenic. I, on the other hand, am photo allergic. I had, for a time, hoped that the appalling photos were not the inevitable result of my own physical features but the product of extremely poor photography. It is generally believed within my family that my father is an appalling photographer. Lighting, composition and atmosphere – all these things were con-
Frankston Times 17 July 2017
sidered dispensable when my father was in charge of the camera. By far and away it was the fact of the photo that mattered; whether it was any good to look at was largely irrelevant.
While undoubtedly a ‘point and shoot’ kind of photographer, my father could also be quite particular. For years, he insisted on taking pictures at family functions, by standing at the
head of the table and squeezing the button. Year after year, he chose the exact same vantage point, yielding the same unsatisfactory results. Some years, we were sitting in the same seats, yielding a spooky ‘time lapse’ sense to his photos. He also mastered the elusive art of the ‘red eye’. Somehow his pictures always succeeded in giving someone demonically crimson eyes, making them look not so much like a member of the family sitting down to dinner as much as Satan’s spawn taking a quick breather while on the hunt for souls to collect. My father doesn’t do casual. Not for him the candid snap or picture in which the subject is blissfully unaware that they’re being captured for posterity. Rather, he preferred to have us standing together in a group, our bowl haircuts glistening in the sun as he somewhat forlornly asked us to smile. My father has strong views about lighting. In particular, he believes that the best photos are taken when the sun’s rays are lighting the face of his subjects. That, in turn, meant that we had to stand; gazing into an unforgiving, hostile glowing orb while being told not to squint. To this day, I can barely stand direct sunlight. I have a lot of nephews and nieces. I may be biased but, without exception, I think they’re all very good looking. And, unlike me, they’re all extremely comfortable in front of a camera. I think that kids today get a lot more practice when it comes to getting their photo taken. They’re used to it. Once, getting your photo taken was a special event. I look at pictures of my great grandparents and you can tell it was a big deal – they dressed up in suits and gowns and posed as if sitting for an oil
painting. Two generations later and I was getting my picture taken at school while wearing my very best baby blue skivvy. Things move quickly. Phones, in particular, have changed everything. That you can now take a photo whenever you like is both a huge step forward and a leap backwards at the same time. You can, I think, overdo these things somewhat. But my nephews and nieces have started to fight back. Whenever we have a family function, we always make sure to try and take the most alarming picture of ourselves that we can without actually breaking the camera lens. It takes a lot of effort. It’s a group shot. Rather than have someone stand at the head of the table, we try and squeeze in to frame and pull the most amazing faces that we can. The results speak for themselves. It’s often said that a picture says a thousand words and, mostly, these pictures serve as fair warning to the general public not to cross us. We look so frightening that, frankly, even I would cross the road to avoid one of our number. Somewhat unwisely, I divulged the security code for my phone to my five year old nephew. It’s fair to say that he has absolutely gone to town. It’s common place for me to find a whole bunch of new pictures of him pulling all kinds of silly faces. One day, I’m hoping one of them turns up on his passport. Whenever I see photos of me with my nephews and nieces, I forget for a moment that I’m cursed with an un-photogenic face. Instead, I just feel lucky. Now just say ‘cheese’…. firstname.lastname@example.org
