Learning tradition LYNNE Alexandra gives Pohurihanja Waru some creative tips at the BayMob indigenous health and education expo in Frankston last week. More than 300 people visited the expo at Monash University’s peninsula campus in Frankston on Friday to enjoy a wide range of free entertainment, workshops, information seminars and creative activities aimed at promoting health, education and wellbeing opportunities available for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in the Frankston and peninsula region. A partnership event between Peninsula Health and Monash University, the free event was developed to break down barriers to health services, employment and educational pathways and help build long-term partnerships between service providers and the indigenous community.

Dogs gone at PARC Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au DOGS could be banned from the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre and its surrounds after Frankston councillors gave a ‘dog free zone’ their approval at last week’s council meeting. Councillors unanimously agreed the PARC - but not parks - was no place for man’s best friends. Council of-

ficers advised “concerns have been raised about the possibility of dogs being brought to the facility and either being left in cars or tied up to trees or posts within the facility precinct”. The $49.7 million PARC was opened up to the public last month. Frankston mayor, Cr Darrel Taylor, said while there had not been any reported incidents of dogs being left unattended at the swim and fitness

Council officers noted unattended dogs could “become agitated or unruly” and possibly aggressive towards passersby if “fearful or uncomfortable”. PARC acting CEO Peter Armstrong said centre management were comfortable with the move. “We haven’t seen a problem but it’s a good initiative and PARC is a family-friendly alcohol and smoke

centre, council had decided to be proactive and “make the decision early” to prohibit dogs in the area. “It’s a public area but it’s not appropriate for dog walking,” Cr Taylor said. He said prominent signage would be put up by council to let PARC visitors know about the ‘no dogs’ rule. Any ban would include the adjoining skate park and retarding basin.

If adopted, the ban would mean council compliance and safety officers and police officers could issue warnings or fines to owners if dogs are taken to the PARC precinct.

Frankston a major target for minors Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au MINOR parties have begun fielding their candidates as the battle for Frankston at next month’s state election begins to intensify. The Australian Greens, Australian Christians and Rise Up Australia could heavily influence the outcome as they shape up to take on independent sitting MP Geoff Shaw and Labor’s Paul Edbrooke and the Liberal Party’s Sean Armistead. Mervyn Vogt will stand as an independent candidate. While it is unlikely the minor parties can win the seat of Frankston outright, their preference votes could ensure they become ‘kingmakers’ if those votes push a major party candidate over the winning line. Mr Vogt said he would run on an “open ticket”. Most parties have indicated it is too early to decide where their preferences would flow with negotiations still underway between parties. Mr Vogt, an energetic 82-year-old, expressed disillusionment with the existing political parties system. The long-time Frankston North resident previously ran as a Greens candidate in the 1999 state election and is a former member of the Labor Party. He is running on an anti-electricity smart meters platform and advocates a greater say for the electorate after elections have been held. “I would like to see the right of recall of undesirable politicians,” Mr

Australian Christrians candidate Anthony Wallace

Vogt said. “Give them 12 months to settle in and if the voters aren’t happy with their performance enough people can sign a petition to get them out.” He said the right of recall works well in California in the US and is “not abused”. Mr Vogt has also looked to California for another of his policy ideas: a citizen-led Frankston venture capital fund to invest in local business startups to bring employment to the area. “It doesn’t make sense to bring in foreign corporations to invest in good, sound ideas here when we could benefit from successful businesses,” he said.

He is dismayed when he walks through “the dead heart” of Frankston and sees many empty shopfronts. “Frankston has been unsupported for so long. We need to encourage people to come here.” Australian Christians candidate Anthony Wallace, 41, also saw a lack of investment in Frankston as a major problem for the area. Mr Wallace, a pastor and salesman of equipment for special needs children, said it was time to “build new infrastructure” in Frankston. “Geelong is a beautiful city and we should look at it as a way to improve,” he said. Mr Wallace noted Frankston had

“changed and improved” over the years but much more could be done by governments if they made Frankston a priority. The Australian Christians candidate was open about where his preferences would flow. He said the Australian Christians party had signed a preferences deal with the “pro-life, antiabortion” Rise Up Australia Party in line with the Australian Christians’ policies. Greens candidate Jeanette Swain, 47, works in the vocational education sector and has first hand experience of “TAFE cutbacks” that have made many courses “prohibitively expensive” for younger students and

older returnees to education looking to reskill. “A lot of people can’t afford to do it now even though the professionalism of those in the TAFE system still delivers quality training,” Ms Swain said. Public transport and improving Frankston’s image with visitors by upgrading the train station and its surrounds would help change Frankston’s image, according to Ms Swain. The Times was unable to speak to Rise Up Australia candidate for Frankston, Lynette Tregenza. A party spokesperson said it party policy that “local candidates do not speak to the press”.

Callous theft leaves charity high and dry Chris Brennan chris@baysidenews.com.au A BOAT used by a charity organisation to take disabled and disadvantaged people out on Port Phillip and Western Port for fishing experiences has been stolen from a Frankston marine outlet where it was undergoing repairs. Police are perplexed at the callous theft of the 5.8 metre Streaker Savage half-cabin vessel and tandem trailer it was sitting on from the locked yard of Robbie Marine Products in Tooyal St last weekend. The boat and trailer, which are owned by the Introfish charity organisation and valued at about $30,000, had been securely stored at the rear of the Robbie Marine Products yard behind padlocked gates after undergoing repair work when it was stolen over the evening of Friday 26 September and the following morning. Staff arrived at 8.30am on Saturday to find the front gates open, with the thieves apparently having used bolt cutters to remove the sturdy padlock securing the premises. The Introfish boat was the only vessel missing, despite there being many other more valuable – and more easily accessible – vessels on the premises, Robbie Marine Products proprietor David Robertson said. Work on repairing two holes in the boats’ fibreglass hull had just been completed when the theft occurred, Mr Robertson said. The work had been carried out free of charge to assist the charity, he added. “It would have taken considerable effort to break in and haul that particular boat out,” Mr Robertson said. “It’s hard to understand how any-

one would do such a thing, targetting a boat that’s owned by charity.” Introfish founder and president Paul Bennett said the boat had only recently been purchased by the charity organisation and was undergoing a series of repairs to get it seaworthy. The charity usually operates out of the Patterson River at Carrum, taking special needs youth out on Port Phillip for fishing expeditions along the peninsula, as well as Hastings and Stony Point for outings on Western Port, depending on the season. “We’ve been hiring boats to take people out fishing for about six years but we recently bought the boat after borrowing $12,000 from a friend who’s battling cancer and wanted to do something to help our group,” Mr Bennett said. “We were able to get it at a good price because it was a bit run down and needed a fair amount of work done to get it ready,” Mr Bennett said. “That was all finished and we were going to take out on the water for the first time within a matter of days, so it’s really upsetting for this to have happened now after all the hard work we’ve put in.” Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb from Frankston police said the boat carried clear signage identifying it as belonging to the charity organisation, making the theft all the more unsavoury. “It is not just any boat, it’s used to take disadvantaged and disabled children out on the water, and it was clearly marked with logos, so it would take a particularly heartless person, or persons, to have stolen it,” Senior Sergeant Lamb said. “The front of the premises was secured with cyclone fencing and a double gate locked with 18-20 millimetre chain and padlock, which was cut, so it would have taken a determined effort

to break in and steal the boat. “It’s hard to imagine what would motivate these people to commit such a callous offence.” Mr Bennett, an experienced angling instructor, founded Introfish about four years ago and the charity has quickly grown in popularity among parents, carers and organisations looking to provide meaningful and fulfilling experiences for a wide variety of “special needs” people. But the inspiration for the charity came from the birth of his third child 12 years earlier in 2002. Despite his new-born son being diagnosed with cerebral palsy, Mr Bennett had hoped to teach

him the joys of angling as he grew up. Tragically, that wish was never to eventuate, with his son dying after just a few weeks of life. However, he pursued his idea of the therapeutic and social benefits fishing could provide to special needs young people, and Introfish has steadily grown in popularity, to the point that the organisation had finally purchased its own boat. “The theft has certainly hit us hard, but we’ll bounce back,” Mr Bennett said. Anyone with information that could help recover the boat is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

New coach for Dolphins FORMER Box Hill Hawks senior assistant coach Patrick Hill has been appointed coach of the Frankston Dolphins. Hill, 42, replaces Simon Goosey who led the club for five years after replacing Shannon Grant. He has been senior assistant at the Hawks for the past three years and has a solid base in coaching football at VFL level. Interim club general manager Simon Green said Hill had “been around football for a number of years” and previously coached Springvale Districts, Tooradin-Dalmore and Bonbeach, where he was also club president. Speaking in Frankston last week, Hill said he was “very excited to be at Frankston, and looking forward to coaching one of the VFL's traditional clubs”. Green said the new coach - who lives in Endeavour Hills but has a Frankston background - was “all about culture and equality” among his players and support staff. “He’s no pyramid style manager with him at the top and everyone else underneath - he’s an inclusion type of person who sees the big picture. His presentation was wonderful – he’s a real football person with the sort of culture we want ingrained in the club.” Acting president Brad Hill said outgoing coach Simon Goosey had built a “strong foundation for the club and his efforts are appreciated and his contribution cannot be understated. We wish Simon and his family the best for the future”. The Dolphins finished 12th this season.

Art creation helps mental health

Men arrested over armed robberies

Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au AN art exhibition showcasing works by artists living with mental illness is being hosted at Frankston Art Centre’s Cube 37 Gallery. The annual Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Mental Health Week Art Exhibition is coordinated by the Mental Illness Fellowship Victoria with partners Frankston Council and Peninsula Support Services. Mental Illness Fellowship regional manager Marinette Dames said art is a way those dealing with mental illness can bravely “challenge their illness” on the road to recovery. “The art exhibition is a way for people to be able to share what art has meant to their recovery,” she said. Each exhibit has been submitted by artists living in Frankston or on the peninsula. “The exhibition makes them feel connected with the community and gives them a sense of confidence and self-pride,” Ms Dames said. Mental Health Week runs from 5-11 October and Mental Illness Fellowship Victoria has organised a ‘Work is more than a wage’ networking event for business and community leaders to learn more about the vital role employment can also play in recovery from mental illness. “People with a mental illness want to work,” Ms Dames said. “But stigma and misunderstandings about mental illness in the community often hold people back.” Ms Dames said some employers mistakenly believed those coping with mental illness “become violent and aggressive” and “are not reliable”. In fact, this is not the case in the majority of cases and such misconceptions stop people seeking help and letting others know about their illness. “Employers should be open with the employee about the support they may need,” Ms Dames said. “Don’t be afraid to talk to them about it.”

TWO men have been arrested over a spate of armed robberies allegedly committed over a four-week period across the bayside and peninsula regions. Frankston armed robbery squad detectives arrested a 21-year-old man at the Ambassador Hotel in Frankston last Wednesday morning. Later the same morning a 26-year-old from Skye was arrested after his vehicle was pulled over at Springvale. Both men were charged with multiple counts of armed robbery and have been remanded in custody. Police are still looking for a third man alleged to have been involved in the crime spree. The men are alleged to have held up six retail outlets at knife point, including service stations at Patterson Lakes, Black Rock, Frankston, Hastings and Crib Point. Police had been searching for a stolen early model Holden Commodore sedan that was alleged to have been used in each of the armed robberies. After a two week lull following the fifth armed robbery in which a service station in Davey St, Frankston, was held up on Sunday 17 August, the gang allegedly struck again. On Sunday 31 August, a liquor outlet in Ringwood was robbed at knife point by balaclava clad bandits. But as gang sped away, they crashed their getaway car. While they managed to escape on foot, police were able to recover the crashed vehicle – a stolen early model Holden Commodore sedan. Detectives obtained forensic evidence from the vehicle which allegedly led to the identification of the two men arrested on Wednesday. They have been remanded in custody to appear before Melbourne Magistrates Court on 18 December. Chris Brennan

Appeal to provide nursery with ‘loving care’ AN appeal launched last week will raise money to rejuvenate two key areas in Frankston Hospital’s special care nursery, which treats more than 500 sick and premature newborns each year. The special care unit’s family and lactation rooms are “in dire need of some tender loving care”, according to special care nursery unit manager Alison Conroy-Joyce. “Currently, they are clinical and uninviting spaces that could easily be transformed into a relaxing and warm space with a coat of paint, new lighting and furniture,” she said. The appeal aims to raise $30,000 to improve the care of new mums and families in Frankston and across the peninsula who’s acutely ill, or premature, newborns are admitted to the special care nursery. About 5800 appeal letters were mailed out to residents on Friday. Ms Conroy-Joyce said environment played a “significant role” in a family’s experience in such a sensitive setting. “A new mother’s birth story is unique,” she said. “It is especially important that the surrounding environment for our mums, partners and babies is one of comfort and support. “This is especially important in those first few fragile days of their baby’s life.” Creating a space where families can come together for some private time with their sick child, or even on their own to regroup, plays an important role in a place like a special care nursery, she said. As well as wanting to create a warm and inviting place for families, the hospital’s birthing team aims to provide a private place for new mums to express breast milk for their newborns in the nursery. “Like the family room, our current lactation room has a cold and clinical feel and we want to be able to create an inviting space where new mums can come and express milk in privacy and comfort,” Ms Conroy-Joyce said. “Having a child in the special care nursery can often be a stressful experience in itself. Our aim, with the help of the community, is to take away some of those stresses, even if it’s just for a moment.” To contribute to the appeal to help the peninsula’s littlest and sickest patients contact the Peninsula Health Fundraising Department on 9788 1284 or visit peninsulahealth.org.au

Choir in rehearsal THE School of Hard Knocks Frankston choir will hit their first tentative notes at 10am on Wednesday 22 October at the Uniting Care Church, 16-18 High St. The choir is being modelled on the original, successful choirs featuring the disadvantaged and homeless that aims to give them a purpose and focus in life – rather than just a drab, humdrum existence on the streets. The concept was launched at a Rotary Club of Frankston Long Island fundraiser at the Frankston International Motel last month attended by Choir originator Jonathon Welch. The group is hoping to attract prospective choir members as well as agency workers and anyone who may be interested in volunteering to help with lunches and support members. Morning tea and lunch will be provided. Community Support Frankston acting manager Steve Phillips said the aim of the choir was to engage people experiencing disadvantage in Frankston - be it homelessness, loneliness, social isolation and disability with the arts. “It is a cost-free program for all choir members - and no prior experience in singing or music is required,” he said. “The first term of the program will run for eight weeks with an opportunity to join in performances come midDecember.” The choir will be run by experienced members of the School of Hard Knocks and it is anticipated that most choir members will be referred by an agency or worker. “This model has been running successfully in many parts of Melbourne for nearly a decade and a big part of its success has been willingness from local agencies to refer and engage clients in the program,” Mr Phillips said. “It’s not a pre-requisite that choir members have an agency rep or caseworker to ‘prove’ their disadvantage but, rather, that the choir coordinators have a contact point if needed.” He said the events of 22 October will be more of a “come and experience” day for prospective choir members, volunteers and agency workers.

Parties to debate port merits

j e w e l l e r y d e s i g n c h a r l o t t e ly n g g a a r d • w w w. o l e ly n g g a a r d . c o m

WE WOULD LIKE TO INVITE YOU FOR AN EXCLUSIVE AFTERNOON OF INDULGENCE.

BE TREATED TO A LUXURIOUS PAMPERING SESSION WITH OUR VERY OWN LOCALLY PRODUCED BODY BALM. FOLLOWED BY A PERSONALISED

THE two main political parties have agreed to public debates in Hastings and Geelong over the site for Victoria’s next major port. The Liberal-led government is spending $110 million to clear the way for expanding the Port of Hastings, while Labor says the next container port should be near Geelong, the so-called Bay West proposal. Both projects will require dredging and landbased infrastructure. A report commissioned by seven councils in south east Melbourne puts the total cost of the port at $16 billion. Successive governments have previously put the cost at $11 billion without revealing the cost of other infrastructure, such as roads and rail lines. Estimates of job creation vary widely, with Melbourne’s next port likely to be highly computerised. Transportation of containers by road and rail is a divisive issue, with critics claiming most cargoes need to go to the west of Melbourne. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Antonella Celi entered the political arena in August, calling Labor’s Bay West proposal “fundamentally flawed”. Describing Hastings as “the only operational deep water port capable of accommodating the larger container ships currently being constructed and used worldwide”, Cr Celi said the amount of dredging needed for Bay West “just doesn’t stack up”. No estimates have been made public on the amount of dredging needed in Western Port. And with less than two months to go before the Saturday 29 November state election, South East Melbourne councils’ group is also lobbying for Hastings. The report commissioned by the councils – Mornington Peninsula, Frankston, Kingston,

Casey, Greater Dandenong, Cardinia and Bass Coast - sees the port as a bonanza for jobs and manufacturing. The report says the port would have a beneficial economic impact of an average of $60 million a year in gross regional product over 30 years; providing an average 400 jobs a year over that same time frame. It says the expanded port would lead to an extra 5700 jobs by the mid-2030s and 15,200 jobs by the early 2050s. Frankston Council, a member of the group, is touting itself as the commercial hub of an expanded Port of Hastings. The one-hour long debates between Ports Minister David Hodgett and Labor’s ports, freight and logistics spokeswoman Natalie Hutchins will be in Geelong on Monday 6 October and a week later at Hastings, Monday 13 October. The two parties have been bickering over the format of the debate, with Labor claiming Mr Hodgett did not want to be questioned by the public and the minister in turn accusing Labor leader Dan Andrews of “acting like door security” and taking over arrangements from Ms Hutchins staff. "Since that time various proposals have gone back and forth from my office to Dan Andrews' office to try and arrange what I believe should be a proper debate between myself and Ms Hutchins around port policies,” Mr Hodgett said. "It has become abundantly clear that the Opposition leader's office is trying to avoid a debate, or turn it into a town hall style meeting that can easily be high-jacked by stacking the room with branch members and supporters. "I have made it clear from the start that we want a debate between the politicians, so that both sides can present their policies and the community can make up their own minds. Ms Hutchins agreed to this request.” Labor issued a news release welcoming the “long-overdue debates … about the future loca-

tion of the state’s next container port”. “Labor initially proposed to allow questions from the floor, but David Hodgett wouldn’t let the community participate,” Ms Hutchins said. “The communities of Hastings and Geelong are keen to asked questions on the jobs and environmental impacts of the Napthine government’s decision and we hope that Minister Hodgett is prepared to answer them. “If David Hodgett can’t answer serious questions about Hastings, then it’s not a serious option.” Flinders MP Greg Hunt, who has criticised The Times for not doing in-depth analysis of the Bay West proposal, said there is no proposal for him to assess regarding the Port of Hastings, “but if one were put forward, it would have to be assessed by what is likely to be one of Australia’s most comprehensive environmental impact statements under federal law”. In relation to concerns that the state government may be able to give the go ahead to expanding the Port of Hastings under the federal government’s proposed ‘one-stop shop’ laws, Mr Hunt said this could “only be established where a state or territory can satisfy me that they will meet statutory standards”. “The one-stop shop will not only deliver approximately $420 million in direct benefits to business every year, but will result in better environmental outcomes,” Mr Hunt said.

War memorial deal on agenda Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au

Seniors’ badminton fun BADMINTON players enjoyed a “hit and giggle session” last week as part of Seniors Festival activities at the Frankston South Community and Recreation Centre. From left are Louise Whorlow, Helen Wilinson, Andrew, Trudy Nyssen, Shu Brown, Ann Harrion, Jan Sherlock, Glenda McKenna and Kiniki Stirling. Louise and Kiniki are volunteers at the centre.

THE relocation of Frankston’s war memorial from Davey St to Beauty Park is a step closer to reality with councillors set to agree on a new design for a new memorial at next month’s council meeting. Councillors have been divided about giving the new memorial the go ahead amid concerns about a $1.4 million price tag for a design featuring an angled circular wall and water features (‘Memorial funding impasse’, The Times 30/7/14). Crs Geoff Aitken and James Dooley were among those who were frustrated just one design had been presented to councillors. At last week’s council meeting Frankston Council CEO Dennis Hovenden said councillors had now been briefed in September about a review of design options. Mr Hovenden said a “revised design was approved” at the briefing. Frankston mayor, Cr Darrel Taylor, who supported the $1.4m memorial design, told The Times the new design would cost “about $420,000”. “It’s slightly smaller, the sky mirror aspect has been removed and plaques will be placed in sandstone around the memorial,” Cr Taylor said. The revised plans include the relocation of the existing flame at Davey St to the new memorial.

Cr Taylor said councillors had agreed to the new design “in principle” but it was still up for debate at November’s council meeting. The Avenue of Honour and Memorial Walk included in the $1.4m design could be funded and built at a later stage, according to Cr Taylor. Councillors had unanimously agreeing to press ahead with a new memorial last year since the existing Davey St site is not longer sufficient to cope with increased attendances and traffic. Car parking around the site is a major problem. However, at the time councillors agreed to a new memorial it was understood by some that the cost would be about $300,000. It had been hoped a new memorial would be in place before next year’s Anzac centenary commemorations but this deadline has been missed. Mr Hovenden said if councillors endorsed the revised design construction is expected to begin in “early 2015”. The war memorial relocation will be funded by the federal and state governments and council. Frankston RSL has pledged money towards the Beauty Park memorial’s ongoing maintenance after it is built. Since the new war memorial will not be ready for Anzac Day next year, centenary commemorations will be held at Frankston Park, not Davey St, with large crowds expected.

Complaints are a sign of the political times

Boom time: A boom on Kananook Creek is in place to collect debris falling from a pedestrian bridge being temporarily repaired while Frankston Council seeks design approval from the community. Picture: Gary Sissons

Bridge repairs to restart REPAIRS are scheduled to start this week on the pedestrian bridge over Kananook Creek near Beach St, Frankston. Demolition of the bridge was stopped three days after it began in July after complaints from the public that any new structure should keep the bridge’s “historic appearance”. A spokesman for Frankston Council said “public consultation” over the eventual design of the bridge expected to be completed within 12 months and, in the meantime, council will repair the bridge so it can be reopened by 17 October, “weather permitting”. Frankston accountant Trevor Paganoni, who walks past the bridge on his way to work each day, said the initial; demolition team had placed a

boom on the surface of the creek “presumably to stop anything they dropped going out to the bay”. However, when work ceased after three days the boom was left, collecting rubbish stretching about four metres across the creek”. “With the southerly winds the other day the mass of debris actually moved about 20 metres back up the creek as one solid mass, which made me think that council has helped create our own Frankston version of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.” The council spokesman confirmed the boom “is a construction requirement to adhere to EPA regulations and prevent any debris from the bridge works disappearing down the creek”.

FRANKSTON Council has acted on complaints received about the positioning of a political advertising billboard in a sign the political battle for the seat of Frankston is heating up. Last Friday, council ordered the removal within 48 hours of a billboard promoting Liberal candidate Sean Armistead at the perimeter fence at the ground of the Frankston Dolphins Junior Football Club at Overport Park in Frankston South. The billboard obscured the names and logos of sponsors of the junior football club. Mr Armistead said the billboard had been mistakenly placed in the “wrong spot” after “some misdirection” to the company tasked with erecting official Liberal Party advising around the electorate. “The footy club is supportive and there’s no dramas,” he said. “The sign will definitely be moved to another location at the park.” Mr Armistead was unfazed by the billboard “misdirection” and said he would focus on getting his message out about the Coalition state government’s plans to invest in Frankston’s future rather than become embroiled in any tit-for-tat stoush over any rival Labor Party signage and posters that may break electoral rules. Coincidentally, the fencing at Overport Park was originally installed by Armistead Fencing. Mr Armistead advised the Cranbourne South-based fencing business is owned by his cousin Paul Armistead.

Wedding dramas inspire tragedy SPANISH playwright Federico Garcia Lorca’s Blood Wedding will be staged by Dionysus Theatre at McClelland College Performing Arts Centre – Karingal this month. Lorca is acknowledged as one of his country’s most important dramatists and poets of the 20th century. During his short artistic career he was fascinated with the music and culture of rural Spain and this, combined with a newspaper article on the murder of a young man who had attempted to run away with a bride on the eve of her wedding, served as a strong influence for this play. In Blood Wedding, a nameless bride is set to marry her bridegroom - the usual custom. This particular bride is an independent woman, bound by both geographical isolation and the traditions of a culture that do not afford women much freedom. She chooses to marry both because it is what is expected, and also, conversely, as an attempt to exert some control over her life. However, she does not account for the jealousy - or allure - of her former love, the suspicions and fears of her bridegroom’s mother, which are steeped in old wounds and resentments, or the growing frustration she feels towards her own

circumstances. In a nod to Lorca’s travelling theatre roots, seven actors perform all 20 roles, and employ a stripped back, yet highly stylised and symbolic, approach to staging. In addition to their characters, the actors present a Greek chorus at various intervals to highlight the classic-tragic nature of the play. The production also features flamenco influenced movement sequences designed by Lucy Angell, which are inspired by Antonio Gades, and drawn from Lorca’s own passion for Andalusia and the rich cultural heritage of his country. The performers are Amber Budd, Lachlan Casey-Roleff, Kirsten Chapman, Matthew Dutchman, Kate Jackson, Lenora Locatelli and Jett Thomas. Performance times are 8pm, Friday 17 October and Saturday 18 October, and Friday 24 October and Saturday 25 October.

Students have a say on Karingal SENIOR McClelland College students will have a say on the positives and negatives of living in Karingal as part of a community group’s strategy meeting. The Karingal Local Area Planning Group will get together at 7pm, Thursday 16 October, at the school in Belar Ave, Kooringal. Secretary of the group Michael Long said “what will undoubtedly be a most interesting meeting” would also include a presentation and discussion of the Frankston Council landscape architectural draft plan (or “mud map”) for the development of Gretana Crescent Reserve – formerly the Karingal Tennis Club. The group will also nominate special events, such as Clean-Up Australia Day, for its 2015 calendar; put questions without notice to any Frankston north-west ward councillors present, and enjoy supper courtesy of McClelland College. “We keep an eye on what goes on in this part of Frankston and help where we can,” said Mr

Long, of Bahloo Crt. “Our best achievement, last year - with the help of the three north-west councillors: Glenn Aitken, James Dooley and Rebekah Spelman - was to have the Gretana Crescent Reserve (formerly Karingal Tennis Club) retained as a community asset, rather than just being sold as Frankston Council had intended. “We are now in the process of planning to develop the site as a valuable community facility, and our October meeting will be special in that we are inviting students from McClelland Secondary College to contribute their views, and inviting community members to attend and consider joining the group.” Mr Long said all Karingal residents were welcome to attend. They should enter the college from Belar Ave and head for the information common room, previously the library. For details and to RSVP call Mr Long on 9789 5291.

Safety rules with ‘red fever’ By Paul “Tracker” Pingiaro EACH year tens of thousands of Melbournians venture out onto the bays – Port Phillip and Western Port in search of big red. Many are season veterans, many greenhorns all sharing the waters, all with the same goal. Anglers get caught up in the "red fever" and take risks, risks that are avoidable. Whenever you venture out on the water you're entering a potential unknown. The trick to safe boating and fishing is reducing the unknown. Weather reports should be checked, tides known, local hazards acknowledged, safety gear inspected and boat maintenance in order. The water is not a place for risks. I always say to my clients it's best to wish you were on the water than to wish you weren't. Spring can bring some big weather fronts and storms, take care and be aware. Early season snapper continue to be all the hype, but the season is young and anglers shouldn't forget about other species. It's rare, but at the moment the same fishing report can be given for both bays. Snapper are holding over the deeper reefs (6-12m), squid are still strong over the weed beds and shallow reefs (2-4m), the deep waters are holding gummy sharks and flathead are consistent over the sand (8-14m). The whiting are still a little slow and reports are patchy, although I think this is more due to most anglers concentrating on snapper. For those that are land locked the next 4-6 weeks is your peak time to bag a snapper. Early season snapper

follow the old fault lines up the bay, these paths take them quite close to shore, while rough conditions are favoured by many, don't push the limits. If you're fishing off the rocks, don't go alone. Remember, fishing is a recreation, time to enjoy the environment, cleanse the mind and feed the soul, whether it's on a boat, kayak, pier, bank, beach or rocks, it's your time to

enjoy so play it safe around the water this fishing season. Tight lines and calm seas.  Paul “Tracker” Pingiaro runs Mornington Boat Hire at Schnapper Point in Mornington and Yaringa Boat Hire at Yaringa boat harbour in Somerville (www.morningtonboathire.com.au or call 5975 5479).

Historians battle for freedom fighter ‘truth’ By Fran Henke THE idea of Aboriginal freedom fighters is extremely attractive in the post “sorry� and current Reconciliation environment. The idea of establishing a memorial to Aboriginal freedom fighters in Melbourne is even more attractive to assuage consciences and serve elements of Aboriginal politics. However, truth must come first insist research historian Dr Marie Hansen Fels, archaeologist David Clark, and Mornington Peninsula historian Rene White. The three, drawing on lifetimes of expertise and six intense months of detailed primary research, have published “Mistaken identity, not Aboriginal resistance� in the October edition of the intellectual journal Quadrant. Their evidence shows that such a memorial would venerate the wrong heroes. Dr Fels wrote of early findings on the story in 2012 for The Times. Since then the three have expanded their knowledge on two Aborigines hanged for killing two whalers at Cape Paterson in 1841. The City of Melbourne has allocated $155,000 for a memorial to the Aborigines, known as Bob and Jack, the first persons to be executed in Melbourne. Council has been persuaded that these two, originally from Tasmania, were resisting white settlement, publishing Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheener – the involvement of Aboriginal people from Tasmania

in key events of early Melbourne to support the argument. “We are all committed to the need to see justice for Indigenous people,� Dr Fels said. “It takes a brave person to say this [proposal] is a con job.� I am taking coffee at Red Hill South with three such brave people. Keeping historians to the subject takes courage too. They tend to veer off into fascinating side issues, talking all the while in the present tense, though the subject may be the 1840s. “If memorials are to mean anything, they need to be truthful,� continues Dr Fels, who has spent the past 30 years researching early contact in Tasmania and Victoria. She is utterly frank about the politics behind the decision. She first protested to David Clark, then Aboriginal Affairs Victoria’s heritage operations manager. He told her “it is not the function of government departments to interfere in matters of truth in newspapers�. Dr Fels had appealed to him over the inflammatory nature of an article in The Age newspaper, based on the content of a booklet published by Melbourne City Council propping up its memorial decision. “Having learnt the political truth, I involved Rene White,� she said. Mrs White, of Pt Leo, is a meticulous researcher, with expertise in the people of the Mornington Peninsula and Gippsland. She equates the joy of research to creating a Persian carpet, thread by thread. The two had worked a decade before in the Flinders District Historical Society on a map of the peninsula

featuring from the earliest primary sources, reliable Aboriginal names of places. The mapmaker was Phil Hughes of the shire’s GIS department. A copy was given to all schools on the peninsula and is used in the Koori Heritage Trust publicity. “The MCC booklet contained no primary research, featuring a farrago of tidbits, whereas David and I, independently, had been noting information about these people since 1980,� Dr Fels said. “They [writers of the booklet] didn’t know where to go for facts of the time. The book is history-light,� she said emphatically. It also depicts the two in traditional garb based on a painting from the 1830s. By the 1840s, they had adopted European clothing, were well thought of and spoke English. Mrs White specialises in the life of Watson, a coalminer who lived at the Cape Patterson mine, whom she describes as “a duplicitous liar�. It was Watson the two Aborigines, known as Bob and Jack, were after. Instead, they killed whalers William Cook and Yankee, expressing sincere sorrow immediately and at the trial before controversial Judge Willis. Dr Fels produces the journal of the Rev Joseph Orton, who visited the wives at their mia-mia in 1842 after the execution. Orton recorded their account, preserved in the Mitchell Library, Sydney. His expertise in ethnology was respected. Given another chance to correct its story, which Dr Fels says The Age rejected on grounds of space and current focus on Islamic State, she

turned to Quadrant. Its editor Keith Windshuttle, for whom fabrication of Aboriginal history is anathema, welcomed submission of an article. The three worked up 12,000 words. Quadrant asked for cuts. They pruned 4000 words. Quadrant’s limit is 5000 words but stretched to the occasion. “We just scratched the surface,� said David Clark. The notion of Aborigines in the Port Phillip area as freedom fighters does not fit with his knowledge of the history of cultural contact. “There was violent resistance, but not around Port Phillip where the traditional owners took a pragmatic approach to the new settlers with their desirable goods.� “The whole history of European discovery and exploration showed caution with native peoples,� Dr Fels said. “Violence occurred when Aboriginal people strayed into others’ country, or when one group offended the social mores of others, usually by not meeting perceived reciprocal obligations,� agreed Mr Clark. “If a memorial is to be established it should be to Winberri, who was shot in 1840 when he tried to defend 200 of the Melbourne tribes being pursued by troopers along the Heidelberg Rd.� Winberri did stand up for traditional rights, stating: “Sheep eat the grass belonging to kangaroo, the white fellow took kangaroo, what for no give him sheep?� The three are considering their next move. But they are adamant, truth must out.

Give your family the royal treatment WITH majestic street presence, your eyes cannot fail to be drawn to the stunning red brick facade of this superb home. Available to the market for the first time, this divine home has had no expense spared in the creation of what is truly a master class in style and design. Measuring an impressive 325 square metres, across two levels, the design features contrast from room to room with all zones boasting their own distinct style. Rich timber floors flow throughout a comfortable family lounge and dining area, with a splendid kitchen offering a stainless-steel dishwasher and a fantastic amount of cupboard space with a butlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pantry. A rumpus room or home theatre adds another dimension to this family zone, and from the dining area there is access out to the elevated patio overlooking the in-ground pool. Set towards the front of the home are the formal lounge and dining rooms; both have sumptuous floor coverings and window furnishings for the perfect setting to any elegant occasion. At the top of the stairs is a massive fourth living area which would be perfect for a library or a parents retreat with access out to the balcony where a wonderful view over to the Moorooduc Plains and Arthurs Seat awaits. From this central area four bedrooms branch off in each direction. The master bedroom has his and hers walk-in robes plus an ensuite with spa, a second bedroom has a delightful turret window with box seating and remaining bedrooms have built-in robes and could share a powder room.

What services are being offered to our outpatient community? Frankston Hospital is our main site which has comprehensive Medical Imaging department services offering wide variety of services such as: 1. General X-ray; 2. Dental Imaging (OPG and Lateral Cephalogram); 3. Bone Densitometry; 4. CT scanning; 5. MRI scanning; 6. Ultrasound; 7. Nuclear Medicine and 8. Interventional services.

Do I need to make an appointment? General X-ray, OPG, DEXA and CT scans generally do not require an appointment, if you require any information about your tests please call us on (03) 9788 4506.

Who can refer me for a test? Your local GP or medical specialists can refer you and we accept request forms from all other imaging providers as well. Physiotherapist, Osteopaths and Chiropractors can also refer you to us, however they limited in what test they can request as a bulk billed service.

At Rosebud we offer x-ray and in-patient US service at Rosebud Hospital. However, we are excited about the new CT service which will commence in January 2015.

Do I have to pay? Medicare covers the cost of most of the tests we do, so you won’t have to pay any out-of-pocket expenses however, there are some exceptions such as MRI so please call us on (03) 9788 4506 if you wish to make a query on a particular test.

your images, however your referrer will probably have access to your images remotely at their practice to see your images and reports so generally a CD is often not required.

In the last few months I’ve had an MRI, cortisone injection and an ultrasound. On every occasion I’ve been extremely well looked after with outstanding friendly service in a highly professional surrounding. I would highly recommend Frankston hospital radiology to anybody requiring their services. - Kate, R Mornington

Snoring is not just annoying for your partner it is a serious health risk SLEEP apnoea affects the way you breathe when you’re sleeping. In untreated sleep apnoea, breathing is briefly interrupted or becomes very shallow during sleep. These breathing pauses typically last between 10 to 20 seconds and can occur up to hundreds of times a night. This jolts you out of your natural sleep rhythm. As a consequence, you spend more time in light sleep and less time in the deep, restorative sleep you need to be energetic, mentally sharp, and productive the next day. This chronic sleep deprivation results in daytime sleepiness, slow reflexes, poor concentration, and an increased risk of accidents. Sleep apnoea can also lead to serious health problems over time, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and weight gain. Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is one of the most common sleep disorders. OSA affects about 25 per cent of adult males and 10 per cent of adult females (although most affected individuals do not complain of daytime sleepiness). The South Eastern Private Hospital has a Sleep Centre for the diagnosis and treatment of this common condition. Sleep Physician Dr Michael Ho says “while home testing is available it has limitations and is often inconclusive for those with milder symptoms. If unsupervised the leads used for capturing the signal can fall off in the night. This ends in the data being disrupted” He added that many of those “home tested’ will

still have to follow up with an overnight sleep study for more accurate results any way. Neil Henderson (CEO of The Valley Private and South Eastern Hospitals) has been a patient at the Sleep Centre. Mr Henderson said it has changed his life. “I used to fell like falling asleep driving to and from work, at the office and was constantly fatigued. My energy levels have improved significantly since my diagnosis and treatment” he said The STOP test consists of 4 questions and is a simple way to find out if you are at high or low risk of OSA. If you answer yes to 2 or more questions you are at high risk! Snoring – do you snore loudly (louder than talking or loud enough to be heard through closed door)? Tired- do you often feel tired, fatigued or sleepy during the day? Observed -has anyone observed you stop breathing during your sleep? Blood Pressure- do you have or are you being treated for high blood pressure? With the right treatment you can control the symptoms, get your sleep back on track, and start enjoying life again. Ask your GP for a referral to the South Eastern Private Sleep Clinic, for most patients there is no out of pocket expenses. You will be admitted post your work day and discharged after breakfast the next morning. See www.southeasternprivate.com.au or call 9549 6555.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Delays as newspaper staff off to the war Compiled by Cameron McCullough WE have been compelled to hold over correspondence from Somerville and Hastings and other matter till our next issue, owing to the majority of our staff having enlisted for the war, and for the same reason we have to apologise for appearing a day late this week. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold their monthly sale at Somerville on Wednesday next. *** AT the last meeting of the First Aid, held some days ago, a hearty vote of thanks was tendered Dr. Maxwell for his course of interesting and instructive lectures which he had delivered. *** WE would remind our readers of the Percy Blundell Concert to be held in the Hastings Hall on Friday next, when he will be ably assisted by Miss Rosa Alba, Rosa Walton and Mr Warnecke. A combination of no mean order, and as ten per cent of the proceeds are to be devoted to the Patriotic Fund there will be a bumper house, to give a warm welcome to these artists. *** SPECIAL Home Mission Services will be held in the Frankston Methodist Church Circuit during next week, commencing on Sunday, when Sister Bessie (the deputation) will preach at Frankston, Langwarrin and Somerville in the morning, afternoon and evening respectively. Meetings will he held in the different centres during the week, places and dates being advertised in another column.

*** THE Home Mission Fund collection at St Paul’s Church Frankston was a great success. With money previously collected by Miss Picking for the fund the total came to £11 1s, which is more than last year’s collection and nearly up to the best previous collection, that of 1912. *** A VERY hardworking bee met at Seaford on Saturday, to paint the Seaford hall and Church. At the end of the day the whole was covered with the best red oxide, picked out with white lead. Many of the amateurs showed a great facility for painting their faces and hands, as well as for covering their clothes with spots. Of those who are not permanent residents at Seaford we should mention Messrs Reg. Coulson and Fred Woolnough, who helped with expert advice and expert work, also Mr Brady and a friend who worked untiringly. Mrs Latimerand Mrs W. Wilson looked after the commissariat. *** THE total money taken at the St Paul’s Club presentation of “Who’s Who?” for the Patriotic Fund was £5 10s, being door £5 8s, and one subscription 2s from Dr Maxwell. The expenses were 11s for printing and 19s for miscellaneous expenses, including hire of properties. Thus there was £4 profit, which has been handed to the Treasurer of the Patriotic Fund. *** THE members of the Dromana Sports Club are notified in our advertising column that the annual meeting of the

above Club will be held in the Dromana Hall on Friday night Oct. 16th. The committee are considering the advisability of holding the next race meeting on the racecourse near Moores corner, on Boxing Day the 26th of December. *** The Kaiser. The figure standing out from all others in Europe today is William II, Emperor of Germany – a man who has held the peace of Europe in the palm of his hand for the last ten years. He came into the world with the brightest prospects. He was the eldest son of an eldest daughter, his mother being the eldest child of the late Queen Victoria. Through this relationship he has claimed, since he was eight years of age, that he is the rightful heir to the throne of Britain. Authorities claim that his position rests upon a solid foundation, and there can be no doubt that his assistant war-lords have incited his ambition in this direction to the over balancing point in which he is poised today. As a boy, too, his insatiable hatred for Britain was very marked. His mother tried again and again to induce him to go to England for a holiday, and enter into the family life of his cousins. But, no, these entreaties only brought forth jeers and contempt for his mother’s aims, and finally he told her he would go there as King of England; but, first, he would be crowned in Paris as King of France. Naturally, his mother was made very unhappy by this attitude towards the

land of her birth. She and her husband, the late Emperor Frederick, sought council in the matter, and it was determined to procure one of the most distinguished English tutors, whose main task would be to impress their young hopeful with the laws of primogeniture and laws of heredity, particularly, William was not long in discovering the objective of his new tutor, and then commenced a warfare of debate. Young as he was, he gave his English tutor chapter and verse of English history, from the days of the Norman Conquest up to that moment. He also told his tutor – a solid Englishman with English traditions – that the English were not English at all, and that England was conquered by a Frenchman. He also said that he could see the day when France and England would fight side by side to wrest his German Dominions from him. One day when he worked himself into a terrific passion with his tutor over this burgeoning question, his mother entered the room. It was the first chance he had of speaking to his mother and tutor together. He thundered these words at them. “You will never impress me, nor would all the world, against what I believe. My mother is the eldest daughter of England’s Queen, and I am my mother’s eldest son, and I will sit on that throne, with the help of God and my right arm, even if the world be bathed in blood to accomplish it.” Needless to add, his mother’s heart-

strings were torn by such display but she bravely beseeched him to, curb his warlike spirit, and reminded him there had been enough French and German blood spilt already to last through his lifetime. The English tutor resigned immediately, adding that Prince William’s mind was like a smouldering volcano, with terrible possibilities if ever he were possessed of power. The next action, which was a powerful searchlight on his character, was when he was crowned Emperor. His jealousy of Bismarck was well known, and now was the time to humiliate and degrade the man who had federated Germany with such success that the French lay mangled in the dirt. He sent for the Iron Chancellor, stripped him of his orders and offices, and ordered him into retirement. Meetings of protest were held all over Germany, but Bismarck consoled himself by quoting the proverb, “The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceeding small.” From the day of his coronation to this he has made the world record his daily movements, but when the settling up comes, the meanest savage in all Central Africa would not change places with him. As a worker and a thinker, he scarcely has a rival; in fact, he was conquering the world through education, industry and peace. Now, a dark pall of despair is laid over unhappy Germany. From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 10 October, 1914.

ENTERTAINMENT

Performance ERIC Clapton (born Eric Patrick Clapp) was a stained glass window designer before he took on a career as a blues guitarist. Clapton was influenced by artists such as Muddy Waters, B.B King, Albert King and Elmore James. Eric’s real break came in 1963 when he joined The Yardbirds just in time for the first British invasion on the American rock and roll scene. Clapton only lasted 12 months in the band claiming The Yardbirds had become far too commercial. Three years later, in 1966, Robert Stigwood met jazz drummer Ginger Baker (Peter Baker) who was working with Alexis Korner and Scottish bass player Jack Bruce, who was working with Manfred Mann and matched them up with Clapton. The three agreed to work together under the band name Cream, and Stigwood produced their first single Wrapping Paper. Cream released their first album Fresh Cream in the US in 1967 which turned Gold thanks to the hit single I Feel Free. By the end of 1968 Cream was the top new band in the US with hits such as White Room written by Bruce/Baker, Crossroads, Badge, Strange Brew, Sunshine of Your Love and I Feel Free. Next month, Shock Entertainment will release Planes, Trains and Eric by Eric Clapton on DVD and Blu-ray. This is an intimate film documenting life on the road during part of his 2014 tour intercut with superb full length performances. The film features many classic tracks including Layla, Cocaine, Tears in Heaven, Crossroads, Wonderful Tonight, I Shot the Sherriff and more. Planes, Trains and Eric follows Eric Clapton and his band on the Far and Middle Eastern leg of his 2014 World Tour. The film features 13 full length performances from the tour intercut with interviews with Eric Clapton and the band members, rehearsal and soundcheck footage and many aspects of being on the road with Eric Clapton. The line-up of the band featured on the film is Eric Clapton (guitarvocals), Steve Gadd (drums), Paul

ever changing. My concern is not so much the obvious insularity of many Australians but moreso the way they embrace it; (read: ignore what’s happening). Yes, Joe gave us a dreadful budget (no surprise from this underperformer) but beautifully trumped by Tony’s aggressive approach to warmongering and playing up the dangers within our everyday society from mysterious European looking citizens, (read: Islamic radicalism). Thus they slip in new laws in the authoritarian sense supported by highly publicised raids, almost literally without comment. Bill Shorten checkmated, so far anyway. The grand finals of the two football codes closely followed by the Spring Racing Carnival, Christmas, sun, surf and barbeques serve as pleasant doses of Valium. “She’ll be right mate” clearly a thing of the past, but like global warming, the “not to worry” approach can have consequences. *** WE fast approach that time of year; Melbourne Cup Day through to February and the influx of holidays makers, including the smaller collection of ratbags, jet skis and swisho utes. Living alongside a block of two bedroom holiday units I’m biased. If they’re of Asian, Indian or Muslim parents I can expect a peaceful even-

ing. If it’s Aussie males or females I’m looking at possibly heavy music and swearing till 3am, unless I courageously bang on the fence around midnight to plead quiet, not always successfully. Thank God for Serepax. Some of our state pollies (both sides) get the cream, but think positive. If they’re up there lording it on champers and caviar during the Spring Racing Carnival, or the opera, the Grand Final et al they stay well away from our areas, Mentone to Sorrento. (They fly to Portsea. And all for free, invited no less. “How sweet it is”. With apologies to Jacky Gleason. *** THEY have meetings, in big rooms with important names: committeeroom, boardroom, even conferenceroom. The name means nothing. Cakes, coffee, tea, water and chocolate bikkies are available, possibly whisky if it’s after 10am. They have power laptops for access to all the financial trends; profit to turnover ratio and like stuff. They wear suits of course, unless they have the odd female on board. Banks, power companies, insurance companies, superannuation boards, supermarkets. They all imbibe. A conversation beforehand on golf swings before the real business. Sometimes a brilliant idea, like sending out letters telling

us of a percentage cut in our bills, or spending more to save less. It doesn’t matter what - as long as it convinces us things go better with coke, so to speak. All are furphies, designed to hide the underlying truth of all discussions, the bottom line. “How to extract that dollar out of our pockets and place it into theirs”. *** WE did not find that plane? We haven’t brought them all home, yet? Aha, now we apparently have an “achievable objective” in Iraq. Christopher Pyne: “We have the capabilities, and given we have these capabilities it would be wrong of us not to be involved”. Tell me readers, what is Tony’s upper class prefect saying? Reminds me of how officers were appointed in England in preparation for World War I. Class first, ability assumed. *** DOES ‘no’ mean ‘yes’? Apparently some men think so. With 40 years of marriage behind me I can say with certainty ‘no’ always meant no, and I have no trouble bringing to mind the odd time or two when I was glad of it. Before marriage when I had no idea of the next move anyway, during marriage as a respite, and now as a relaxing, occasionally frustrating memory. Strangely, when I said no,

John has had a busy year with a new album, release of his biography Hey True Blue, and the commencement of a major tour. About his new single Clouds over Tamworth, Williamson said: “It occurred to me that I had not heard a song about Tamworth that described its beautiful clouds and the flooding Peel River. I nearly called the song The Tower of Legends which is my imaginary tower that is made up of Australian song that have built our country music legacy”. www.johnwilliamson.com.au *** Hot on the heels of the continuing chart success of the very well received new song Broke Down Heart, Victorian country singer Doug Bruce has released his latest album offering Somewhere Better to Be. The album was officially launched at the Gympie Music Muster. Doug wrote ten tracks on the new 13 track album, which includes three co-writes. This is Doug’s fourth, selfproduced album, delivered from his recording facility Shoo Fly Studios. www.dougbruce.com.au

A Grain of Salt THE bias factor in AFL football and politics is to compare a shark to a sardine. Hawthorn friends suggest Buddy Franklin a Judas, accepting Brian Lake’s Western Bulldogs to Hawthorn with the rock solid reason as “that’s totally different”. Leaving aside the consistent misuse of the word “totally”, therein lies the problem. A physical fall is a pain, an infection calls for antibiotics but a sick mind is ignored. We count our opinions, our desires even, as right and obvious clear thinking; others are no doubt misinformed. “I’ll say my piece. If they don’t listen and learn more fool them.” A dozen people all waiting anxiously to voice sounds reasons on the subject at hand, carrying through to gossip generally, bad mouthing, the faults of others big and small; never occurring to the speaker of his/her deficiencies, which we all have. The Grand Final is over, wrong opinions forgotten, the victors repeated, (“I told you Hawthorn would win! Didn’t I tell you?” “I don’t remember?”). Previous opinions reverted to an even start. “Men ever count their own desires as right; those who think different are fools”. Remember those Mad comics and Alfred E Neumans’ words of wisdom-”What, me Worry?”. Times

the response could be very nasty. *** TO Daniel Andrews: Sack the person who suggested a public holiday on GF Day...So engrossed in an episode of Midsomer Murders I missed the game.

POWERED BY

BLACK SORROWS TO MORNINGTON The Black Sorrows continue to be one of Australia’s most successful touring bands and 2014 has proven nothing different. After two powerful performances at Bluesfest in Byron over Easter, the band flew to Norway to play at the legendary Rockerfeller Music Hall in Oslo and now they’re on their way for a very special intimate show for local fans at Mornington’s Grand Hotel on Friday 31st October. Scandinavia embraced Joe and The Black Sorrows in the late eighties / early nineties, where their albums, Hold On To Me and Harley & Rose were Top Ten hits. Membership in The Black Sorrows has always been loose and fluid with Camilleri being the only constant. The Sorrows ‘elastic line-up’ and has been home to over 40 talented Australian musicians at different times and acted as a launch pad for the careers of some of Australia’s most successful musicians. Writer of milestone Australian songs such as So Young, Hit And Run, Shape I’m In, Hold On To Me, Harley and Rose, Chained To The Wheel, Never Let Me Go and the Chosen Ones, Camilleri has dedicated his life to making music. Leader of two of Australia’s most successful bands, Jo Jo Zep and The Falcons and The Black Sorrows, Joe’s music has become part of Australian music culture. Since 1984, The Black Sorrows have toured Australia more times than anyone can remember, played sell out shows across Europe, won the ARIA for Best Band‚ and sold more two million albums worldwide. Joe Camilleri has shown fans and critics alike that he is a performer with an undeniable energy and love of it all. The Black Sorrows perform Friday October 31 at the Grand Hotel, Main Street Mornington. Tickets are available from the venue Ph 5975-2001 and for further details visit thegrand.net.au

Piners open well in Provincial PROVINCIAL By IT Gully PINES starteded its season in Provincial cricket in strong fashion, beating Heatherhill by three wickets in the opening round of the season. The Piners have been the juggernaut of local cricket in the past three seasons, jumping from Sub District cricket to Provincial under the leadership of Ricky Ramsdale. On Saturday at Bruce Park, the new kids on the block sent the home side into bat after winning the toss. The Hills lost their first three wickets before the score had reached 20 and were six down before the score got to 60. Thankfully, Steven O’Donnell flew the flag for the Hills, helping his side get to 134 in its 40 overs. Matt Bishop was the only other player to score double figures with 25. Pines quick, Brett Remy, who has saddled up for yet another season, was superb with 2/6 from eight overs. The unlikely damager was part-time

off-spinner Jake Prosser, who snared 3/38. Pines had five former Langwarrin players in their team on Saturday (Ramsdale, Jeremy Weare, Prosser and recruits, Alex and Jarred Coad). In reply, the Piners got the runs with three overs to spare. Ramsdale top scored with 47, Harley Peace-Sterling made 31 and Weare was not out 23. Brett Maxwell was the best of the Hills’ bowlers with 4/46 from 10 overs. Long Island completed the expected and got the job done against Crib Point. The Magpies had a few players underdone, including Luke Herrington, who didn’t bowl a ball. Islanders skipper Simon Dignan was superb in his first game at his new club, scoring 30 and snaring 1/21 off seven overs. The Islanders batted first and made a modest 151 in its 40 overs. Scott Phillips top scored with 31 while Peter Connell made a solid contribution at the end of the innings with 24.

Glenn Barclay was the pick of the Magpies’ bowlers with 4/37 from ten overs, while Brad Davidson snared 3/35. In reply, opener Henry Dolphin top scored for the Magpies with 31 while new Crib Point coach Rob Hearn also batted well with 31. However, the Islanders’ bowling was tight and disciplined and the home side couldn’t break the shackles. In the end, Crib Point fell short of the target by 23 runs, despite having three wickets in hand and batting out their 40 overs. Baxter recruit Joe Rule made an immediate impression at his new club with an unbeaten 115 in his sides strong win against Moorooduc. Rule, who crossed from Heatherhill, belted eight fours and eight sixes in his knock, while at the other end, Dale Irving clubbed 55, including four sixes. The Ducs looked a big chance to get the total throughout their innings, however, fell 12 runs short (7/207). Sri Lankan speedster Chamika Sattambri was modest in his first

game for Baxter with 1/40 from eight overs. It was home grown Leigh Paterson with 3/27 from six overs who had the biggest impact with the ball for Baxter. Mornington got its season away to a flier with a solid 31 run win over rival Mt Eliza. Both clubs have recruited well over the summer, however, it was the reigning premiers, Mornington, that were able to pick up the win in the opening game off the season. The Doggies won the toss and batted first, scoring 8/162. Matt Foon top scored with 72 for the Dogs, while Lyle House took 5/47 for the Mounties with the ball. The Dogs then bowled out the Mounties in the 37th over for 131. Craig Entwistle top scored for his new club with 60, while Luke Popov and Brodie Symons picked-up 4/21 and 4/43 respectively. Peninsula Old Boys started their season just the way they wanted after an ordinary 2013/14, knocking over last year’s grand finalist, Sorrento. With some good recruiting over the

summer, including new coach Matt Hyden from Ballarat, the Old Boys were able to record a comfortable victory with one over to spare. Hyden scored 21 in the chase, Glenn Prendergast top scored with 33 and Callum Savio was left unbeaten on 22. At the beginning of the day, Sorrento was restricted to 7/136. Corey Harris, fresh from a switch from Mt Martha, top scored with 36 for the Sorras while Liam O’Connor hit 30. Tom Clark was also solid with 21. Skipper Nick Jewell didn’t play. In the final match, Langwarrin got the chocolates over Rye at Lloyd Park. Kangas coach Mark Cooper made 48 and Andy Johnson an unbeaten 74 in the total of 4/174. In reply, the Demons were rolled for 117. Dwayne Doig was the best of the bowlers with 3/27, Adrian Mack snared 2/6 from seven overs in his return, Matt Prosser picked-up 2/19 and Jake D’Artri 2/33 from ten overs.

Hastings go down to glamour side DISTRICT By IT Gully HASTINGS went down to the new glamour side of District cricket, Seaford, in the opening round of the season. Despite winning the toss and batting first, the Blues were never able to get settled, scrambling to an uncompetitive total of 8/116 in its allotted 40 overs. Skipper Tim Birch, as he so often does, worked tirelessly for his unbeaten 33, while teenager Archie Lawler-Lobato impressed in his first senior game for the Blues with 22. Lawler-Lobato scored 219 runs in Hastings’ Under 16s last season with a highest score of 99 and 63 in the winning Grand Final. Daniel Esler was another new face for the Blues opening the batting with 15, crossing from Balnarring in the offseason, while 17-year-old Matt Foy also opened the innings with 17. The total was never going to be enough for the Blues. Andy McMannis snared three wickets for Seaford in his return game, while Paul Hartle picked up two wickets in his return and Dil Pageni contributed with two wickets too after crossing from YCW. In reply, Seaford got the total with 15 overs to spare. Nick Simpendorfer hit 37 in his comeback game, Faisal Payenda scored 24 in his return and Hartle was not out for 23. Mitch Floyd was the pick of the Hastings’ bowlers with 2/36. Last year’s District grand finalists, Delacombe Park, started its new season in blistering fashion against Boneo in a high scoring game. Boneo batted first at the small, run friendly Delacombe ground and scored more than five runs an over in their 40 overs, scoring 8/215. Ben Brittain was the best of the home side bowlers, helping himself to 4/31 from eight overs. When it came time to chase down the total, it was Ben’s brother and skipper Chris Brittain who did the damage.

Despite Jon Guthrie making just six runs, the score was on 60 when Brittain came in to bat. At the other end was Nick Christides, who had already hit a half century. He finished with 69. Brittain then went to work with Joel Malcolm and together they got within seven runs of the total. Malcolm eventually went for 35, however, Brittain went on to hit an unbeaten 100 to help his side get to 4/226 with two overs to spare. Red Hill had a successful start to its District season with a win against Somerville. The Hillmen made 6/191 batting first, Riley Shaw top scoring with 55 and former Melbourne player Laurie Heath opening with 43. In reply, Somerville was restricted to 8/177. Brent Martin was the best of the Hillmen’s bowlers with 4/54. Main Ridge cruised to victory against a less than ordinary Flinders. The Ridge sent the Sharks into bat first and rolled them for just 50. Shane Beggs top scored for Flinders with 23. There were five players out for ducks. Jordan McCulley was superb for the Ridge with 5/16 from ten overs. In reply, the Ridge got the runs six wickets down in the 13th over. Gareth Wyatt top scored with 22. Seaford Tigers got the job done against Carrum, winning by 29 runs. The Tigers batted first and made 7/194, Ash Mills top scoring with 78. In reply, the Lions were bowled out for 165 in the 40th over. Dylan Steed top scored with 48, while Josh Dent made 45. David James was the best of the Tigers’ bowlers with 5/48. In the final game Mt Martha held on to beat Baden Powell. The Reds made a modest 108 with Alex Mason top scoring with 36. Nathan Gay took 5/19 off six overs for the Braves. Baden Powell could only manage 93 in reply after being 2/55 at one stage. Elia Carter opened with 45, while Brad Schreuder was the best of the Reds’ bowlers with 4/16 off 10 overs.

Saints make a statement

SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully BALNARRING made their intentions well and truly known in MPCA Sub District cricket on Saturday with an effortless victory against Dromana. Balnarring was extremely active in the recruiting stakes in the off season and the effort certainly had an impact in the opening game. The two openers in Peter Mereszko and Brad Watson were new faces, while David Ross and Ben King were also additions to the Saints’ lineup. Ross was the recruit who had the biggest impact, smashing 87 on debut, while Mark Walles top scored for Balnarring with 95. The tail also had some wag, which helped the home side to a highly competitive 8/280. The Hoppers were never in the contest, bowled out for 82 in 20 overs in their first innings and being sent in again. In the second innings, Dromana faced 14 overs and finished with 4/54. Mitchell Kleinig was the destroyer in the first innings for Balnarring with 7/36, while he took a wicket in the second innings also. Justin Brown took 3/19 off six overs in the first innings. It seems BALLAM PARK may be in for another tough season after being smashed by TOOTGAROOK. The Frogs batted first after being sent in and made 6/188 off 40 overs. Klint James top scored for the home side with 63 and Luke Thompson was unbeaten on 50. Mark Miller was the best of the Knights’ bowlers with 4/20. In reply, the Knights were bowled out for 67 in

the 28th over. John Plakourakis top scored with 20. PEARCEDALE got the 12 points against FRANKSTON YCW, winning by 21 runs. The Dales batted first on their home deck and cruised to 5/176, Chris Dew scoring 43 and Gavin Moore 39. In reply, the Stonecats were restricted to 9/155. Jarryd Herbert returned to the Dales with 3/44 from 10 overs, while Dew and Kaine Smith picked-up two wickets each. ROSEBUD completed the expected and defeated TYABB. The Yabbies lost plenty of talent in the offseason, namely Luke Rus and Scott Didcock, and may struggle this season. The Buds went in without an injured Darren Kerr (eye) but still managed to bowl out the Yabbies for 148.The evergreen Jason Nagel was the pick of the Sharks’ bowlers with 5/17 from eight overs, including five maidens. In reply, Rosebud made the runs with five balls to spare. Jake Millar made the step up from the Second XI and made an immediate impact with 43 opening the batting. In the battle of the neighbours, CARRUM DOWNS knocked over SKYE. Skye batted first and despite batting all of their 40 overs, could only manage 79. Stephen Smart top scored for the Burras with 43, while Chamara Perera was the best of the Cougars’ bowlers with 3/21. The Cougars made hard work of the chase, getting the runs six wickets down in the 39th over. Michael O’Driscoll top scored for Carrum Downs with 24. Pat Beckham was superb with the ball for Skye with 3/5 from 10 overs, including six maidens.
