■ A suspected Friday afternoon drag race has landed two Carrum Downs pedestrians in hospital.

The unsuspecting members of the public, plus the driver of one of the cars, went to hospital after a vehicle ploughed through a bus shelter on FrankstonDandenong Rd, near Avondrust Lodge.

The fence of the residential aged centre was damaged in the incident, but authorities say that none of the Avondrust residents or staff were injured.

The driver suffered serious injuries and was reported to be under Police guard.

The driver of a second vehicle in the suspected drag race was arrested and was saiisd to be assisting Police with their inquiries.

Police officers were probing whether the cars were racing

each other following reports the vehicles had been spotted driving erratically in the moments before the crash.

All outbound lanes have were closed at Wedge Rd, with Police diverting drivers.


■ Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has solved the mystery of large amounts of building material being dumped at Tuerong Rd sites.

A Cranbourne man has been instructed to remove the dumped waste and dispose of it legally. The same man was also issued with two infringements totalling almost $3700.

The Council received a tip earlier this year from a community member that large amounts of building waste had been dumped in two locations along Tuerong Rd.

The Council’s Litter Prevention Officers inspected the dumped waste and began investigations. They were able to trace the waste back to a builder, who had paid another business to dispose of the rubbish on their behalf.

The Council officers reached out to Victoria Police for their assistance. Shortly after, two people were interviewed after returning to the building site with the intention of removing more waste, and potentially committing further dumping offences. One person made full admissions to illegally dumping waste in Tuerong

A Council representative said: “With more and more companies and individuals advertising cheap rubbish removal services on social media and the like, illegal dumping is rife.

Mornington Peninsula Mayor Cr Steve Holland said: “The ‘Dob in a Dumper’ function on our website continues to deliver positive outcomes for our community and helps us protect our beautiful Mornington Peninsula.

“In the 23-24 Budget, we have prioritised

● ● Dumped waste at Tuerong. our waste services. Illegal dumpers will face increased compliance action.

“For our residents, we’ve increased tip vouchers from three to four, increased no-charge green waste events from two to four per year, and added tyres, fridges and mattresses to the list of items that are free to drop off at the tip,” Cr Holland said.

Route 800: never on Sundays


Incorporating the traditions of the Cranbourne Sun (Est. 1893), Frankston Post (Est. 1913), Dandenong Advertiser (Est. 1874), Peninsula Post (Est. 1913), Southern Peninsula Gazette (Est. 1953), Hastings Sun (Est. 1977)

The Local Paper is published weekly online and printed

and circulates in local editions:

■ The Route 800 bus service between Chadstone and Dandenong is the busiest bus route in Melbourne without seven- day service.

Local residents say there has not been a timetable change for more than 30 years.

“On Saturday afternoons it runs only every two hours with the last bus leaving Chadstone before 4pm,” says Peter Parker, Convenor of the Fix800Bus campaign

Fence deteriorates

■ Frankston Council is acknowledging that the fencing has deteriorated along the foreshore at Keast Park, Seaford.

“Unfortunately, the existing fence has deteriorated from harsh coastal conditions, strong winds, shifting sands and salt corrosion,” said a Council representative.

The Council says it is going to upgrade the fencing “over the next few months”.

“The new fencing is made from long-lasting timber (iron bark), and is plastic-free. Aiming to reduce erosion and promote the regeneration of coastal dune systems and allow the habitat to re-establish and thrive.

The work will be completed in stages “to minimise impacts as much as possible”. Some pedestrian access will be closed.

“It is thus not as useful as it could be for many needing to travel.

“Most Melbourne bus routes gained (or regained) seven-day service about 15 years ago but the 800 was left out of the upgrade.

“This is despite major development in the Chadstone/ Monash area and the 800 being the only public transport in parts of Noble Park/Dandenong.”

The bus stops right outside Premier Daniel Andrews's electorate office at Harrisfield shops, opposite RACV.

A parliamentary question on notice was recently asked by Rachel Payne MLA on why the 800 bus doesn't run seven days.

The service operates mostly along Princes Hwy.

It runs via Oakleigh Station and M-City shopping centre. It also passes near Monash University, Clayton, and is the only public transport in parts of Springvale and Noble Park.

Local populations are diverse, are often on low incomes and have a high need for bus services as shown

at Harrisfield. by high patronage on local routes, including the 800 Route 800 operates every 20 minutes during the day on weekdays. Saturday service is much less, with buses every 60 minutes in the morning and 120 minutes in the afternoon, with the last bus around 4pm. This is despite the 800 serving locations that are busy on weekends including major shopping centres like Chadstone Melbourne has about 350 suburban bus routes. Of these Route 800 is the 20th highest on a weekday boardings per hour basis.

On Saturday Route 800 ranks even higher, being the 10th most productive bus route in Melbourne, Mr Parker says. Route 800 operates through the state seats of Oakleigh, Mulgrave and Dandenong

There’s No Business Like Show Business


■ The New Year’s Eve getaway at Hepburn for couple Hugh (Marcus McKenzie) and Will (Wil King) exposes tensions and frustrations compounded by illness and fundamental character flaws.

The occasion is further complicated by the three female friends who regularly share the yearly getaway with them each of whom have their own preoccupations; Alex (Belinda McClory), a TV host; Jo (Maria Theodorakis), a university lecturer; and Sharleen (Michelle Perera), a recently divorced mother.

To begin, Matilda Woodroofe’s set and costumes establish the truth behind the façade of these character’s lives.

A large sliding door is the central feature allowing access to the sights beyond but the backdrop is a picture.

The set panels are also evident beyond the well laid out performance space.

The outfits, and even Alex’s hairpiece, suggest appearance prevents these characters from appreciating the actuality that simmers below the surface.

The wit and invective in Ash Flanders's script is also clever and entertaining but as verbal barbs are exchanged, we wonder if any resolution is possible.

Hugh’s cancer diagnosis leaves him narcissistically deflecting Will’s attempts to help but the psychology of this is never fully explored or accounted for.

And the women’s concerns highlight their own obsessions which are all viable loci for discussion - the male ego, educational mothering and divorce - but which are not germane to what could be the collapse of Hugh and Will’s relationship.

The naturalism of Matthew Lutton’s direction is best highlighted in the pace of the dialogue and its overlapping nature.

Even the offstage dialogue echoes the carryon of real life when people arrive. And the drama technique of howling is comically believable hinting at a send up of workshops all the cast could well have encountered.

The cast delight in their roles inhabiting character and finding not just the comedy but an underlying emotional core but much of what plays out serves as scene setting.

There is a truth behind what these characters experience – especially when it comes to caring for a dying partner.

But Flanders has tended to deflect the focus. We are left with the feeling that the drama of their lives will be repeated come next New Years. This is living – or is it?

■ With an award winning director- Steven Mitchell Wright - at the helm, Away was set to be something special.

Written by Michael Gow this is a story of three families on their Christmas vacation all with various issues. Characters cross over, events take place, truths, lies, tragedies explored amongst a Shakespearean backdrop.

This production is a collaboration with students from Collart- Collingwood, beginning with them covered in blue paint reciting Shakespeare as the audience took their seats.

This leads itself to the first scene in Away, the high school production of A Midsummer’s Night Dream with Tom (Rupert Bevan) as Puck. The Shakespeare does not end there, there is an intertwining with movement, costume and dialogue throughout the show.

There is much to enjoy about this production, yet I feel too much going on. I was confused at times with both the look and action.

The play is set in the sixties, an era of smoking, yet in a small, crowded theatre, Gwen’s (Eleanor Howlett ) chain smoking was uncomfortable.

There were many stylised aspects to this show, so using real, lit cigarettes did not seem necessary. There were inconsistencies throughout in the stylised ‘blocking’, costumes , accents with a lack of attention to detail. An example of this, the wigs.

Amongst some beautiful Shakespearean pieces were some ‘very ordinary’ hair pieces causing a distraction.

Performances amongst this experienced well rehearsed ensemble were consistently good. Particular mention to Bevan in his various roles, he has a strong physical presence on stage. Justin Hosking as the nervous dad (Jim) was very ‘moving.’ Eleanor Howlett , demanding as she should be as Gwen. The vocals of Stephen Tall (Roy) a very memorable surprise element toward the end.

This production has a lot to offer amongst a clever set (Greg Carroll), beautiful lighting (Ben Hughes). Expect a feast for the senses plus the brain.

Performance Details: Until July 22

Venue: Theatre Works, 14 Acland St., St Kilda

Guys and Dolls

■ Antipodes Theatre Company reimagines Guys and Dolls for its 70th anniversary from August 10-19 at Chapel off Chapel in Prahran

Embracing the 'Musical Fable' of the title, the show reflects the passion and politics of 2023 as it transforms Chapel off Chapel into a prohibition-era nightclub.

Artistic Director Brandon Pape says: “Guys and Dolls is a beloved musical and, like any story that has stood the test of time, we quickly realised there was an opportunity to tell this story in an exciting way that created opportunities for artists who may not traditionally have had access to this work.”

During their research, the ATC creative team immersed themselves in the 1920sworking to incorporate the energy of New York Nightlife and Queer Culture at the time into the production.

The production will also feature live music and a bandstand on the stage, with Green Room Award winner Jonathan Homsey exploring and incorporating waacking into the world; a form of dance that originated from gay clubs in 1970s California through the African American and Latino population, taking its cues from the poses and body language of the movie stars of yesteryear.

Based on the short stories of Damon Runyon, featuring classic songs like Luck Be a Lady, Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat and Adelaide’s Lament, Guys and Dolls is directed by Trudy Dunn and Brandon Pape, with musical direction by David Butler , movement direction by Jonathan Homsey and choreography by Carolyn Ooi.

Performance Details: August 10 - 19

Venue: Chapel Off Chapel, 12 Little Chapel St., Prahran

■ Essence Productions invites art and history lovers to join them as they celebrate their 1000th performance of What Was That? at Werribee Mansion on Saturday, August 12 at 8pm

Written by Alaine Beek and based on the true story of the Chirnside Family , this experience has entertained more than 23.000 audience members since it began - welcoming them into one of Victoria’s largest and most opulent properties.

Now in its 20th year, the success of Essence Theatre Production’s What Was That? is a testament to the marrying of arts and history in Victoria, and how the results act to showcase some of our finest attributes to locals, interstate, and international guests, alike.

It is July 1908 and visitors are rare at Werribee Mansion. The mistress, Mary Chirnside, tragically died three months ago and since then there have been multiple strange occurrences in the house.

Despite this, the only two remaining servants, Maggie (the Head Maid) and Mr Duncan (the Butler) have tried to stay positive as they await the new masters.

Welcomed by Maggie as “Old friends of The Chirnside’s”, What Was That? is an immersive, roaming play filled with drama, comedy, and scary elements.

It also allows people to experience the magnificence of the Mansion as the story unfolds throughout the house.

Taken through nine lavish rooms during the performance, they are even invited to sit around the grand dining room table - something normally closed off to the public.

Performed (on varying nights) by Alaine Beek, Ross Daniels, Helen Hopkins, Clare O’Brien, Kevin Hopkins, Phil Cameron-Smith and Glen Hancox.

The countdown to the 1000th show is:

■ Saturday, July 29 at 8pm (show 998), ■ Saturday, August 5 at 8pm (show 999) or ■ Saturday, August 12 at 8pm (show 1000).

Venue: Werribee Park MansionK Road, Werribee

Duration: 90 mins (includes glass of sparkling wine or soft drink at end of show with performers)

Accessibility: due to the historic nature of the mansion there is no wheelchair access for this event

Age Suitability: 11+

Warnings: Some scary elements, light sexual references

Best Films So Far For 2023

■ Yes, it’s hard to believe, but we are already halfway through the year.

Movie wise it has been a very mixed six months, but there have definitely been some standout films.

The weirdest aspect so far in 2023 is how so many Hollywood blockbusters have had David Lean style epic running times (John Wick 4, Indiana Jones 5, Mission Impossible 7, Guardians Of The Galaxy 3) , most of which are largely unwarranted.


■ CentreStage announces its September production of Priscilla at the Geelong Arts Centre from September 8 -23.

As the first major musical to grace the space since 2020, CentreStage is set to bring the Geelong Arts Centre back to life with this show.

Priscilla features the iconic hit songs, original Broadway costumes, large-scale sets, and, of course, the beautiful bus, transporting audiences to a world of glamour, comedy, and heartfelt moments.

"We are thrilled to bring 'Priscilla' to the Geelong Arts Centre, marking a triumphant return to musical theatre in our community," said Producer David Greenwood.

"This production promises to be a celebration of love, friendship, and self-discovery, and we can't wait to share it with the audience."

CentreStage is a leading community-based theatre company that has been entertaining audiences in Geelong since 2010.

Priscilla will run from September 8-23 at the Geelong Arts Centre. Don't miss this incredible opportunity to witness the magic of this iconic musical.

Tickets are available for purchase at the Geelong Arts Centre box office or online at www.geelongartscentre.

Light Reveals

■ The Emerald Hill Art Group annual exhibition ‘The Light Reveals’ will be held at the Gasworks Art Park, 21 Graham St, Albert Park, from Monday August 28 to Sunday September 24.

The opening will cbe held from 6pm-8pm on Tuesday, August 29.

The Group is a community group, self-organised and funded, which meets each week at the Sol Green Community Centre in South Melbourne

The group consists of 18 men and women from different walks of life, who have mutual love of, and wish to practice their art, whilst developing their technique.

Each person uses their own particular medium, but we have a tutor who mentors and encourages us to do our own thing, whilst offering skilled guidance to each and every budding artist.

The current tutor is Neil McIrvine who has made a positive impact upon the group since his taking on this role earlier this year.

Gershwin and Me

■ Simon Tedeschi performs George Gershwin, Rachmaninov, Chopin and Debussy on Tuesday, August 1, in the Toorak Synagogue.

International conductor and pianist Vladimir Fanshil is bringing his acclaimed Live at Yours program to Melbourne for the second concert in an ongoing series of world class musicians performing in intimate yet majestic settings.

With three celebrated albums of Gershwin’s music and countless acclaimed performances of Rhapsody in Blue under his fingers, Tedeschi will present a suite of favourites including Rhapsody, Summertime, I Got Rhythm and more.

Hailed as one of the most exciting voices in jazz today, trumpeter Matt Jodrel will make a guest appearance.

“I performed Gershwin with Larry Adler, who performed with Gershwin himself at a party.

“I was Larry’s last pianist - there were about seven decades between us. Rhapsody in Blue also connects me to another wonderful musician, the conductor, impresario, arranger and survivor Tommy Tycho, with whom I first performed Rhapsody in Blue.”

He describes Gershwin’s music as a clashing of ideals, a syzygy of styles, from Grieg, Rachmaninoff, Klezmer and the Viennese School to the blues, jazz and Latin music.

Gershwin & Me – Simon Tedeschi, Piano Date: Tuesday August 1, 7pm.

Venue: Toorak Synagogue, Cnr

Toorak and St Kilda Rds, South Yarra

Tickets: from $38. Bookings:

Here are my favourite films so far for 2023.

1. Women Talking (M).

After a decade long hiatus, Sarah Polley made a stunning return to the director’s chair with this powerful, relevant and totally absorbing drama, filled with strong performances and a focused, purposeful point of view.

2. Aftersun (M).

Exceptional feature film debut by writer/director Charlotte Wells which beautifully observes a fatherdaughter relationship over a brief holiday away.

The two central performances are astonishing, and the coming of age viewpoint is brilliantly handled.

3. Pearl (MA).

Vividly realised horror/drama from Ti West, this prequel to X is stylish and dramatically satisfying, presenting its tragic story in the style of a 1950’s Douglas Sirk melodrama. Mia Goth is outstanding.

4. Kill Boksoon (MA).

First-rate action/drama/comedy from Byun Sung-hyun (The Merciless, Kingmaker) about a single mother who is an infamous assassin, and wanting to leave the trade to properly raise her teenage daughter. Confidently mixes genres, the characters are well written, and the acting is excellent.

5. Suzume (PG).

Makoto Shinkai (Your Name) returns with a gorgeously animated drama, which perfectly blends drama with fantasy, looking at the trauma Japanese citizens suffered after the 2011 earthquake/tsunami.

6. Reality (M).

Inspired by the best of 70’s political cinema, this intelligent, compact drama (based on a true story) slowly turn the screws as we see a young woman grilled by the FBI over possible breaches of national security. Given who may be a possible candidate at the 2024 U.S. election, this is both tense and relevant.

7. New Religion (M).

This slow burn metaphor for lockdown mental illness is a creepy delight, and is remarkable give it’s

the director’s feature film debut. Patient viewers will be richly rewarded.

8. Smoking Causes Coughing (MA).

This gleefully silly comedy from Quentin Dupieux is a hilarious subversion of all the generic superhero movies that have come our way over the last decade or so.

9. The Banshees Of Inisherin (M).

Simple but involving comedy/ drama from Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) is funny and quietly moving, and features a gallery of magnificent performances. McDonagh’s most low-key film to date.

10. Bones And All (MA).

Luca Guadagnino follows up his terrific remake of Suspiria with this fascinating fusion of drama and horror, looking at a young couple with cannibalistic tendencies, as they attempt to deal with their outsider, disaffected feelings on a road trip through a savagely divided country. Requires patience, but the results are very much worth it.

Honourable Mentions: Infinity Pool; Sadako DX; Weird : The Al Yankovic Story; A Wounded Fawn; Consecration; Hellbender; Air; Huesera : The Bone Woman; Evil Dead Rise; Sick Of Myself; Sisu; Brooklyn 45; Jung_E; The Elderly; Mission Impossible : Dead Reckoning Part 1.

■ Clark Gable had an interesting life and will always be remembered for his role as Rhett Bulter in Gone With The Wind

Clark was a very handsome man and was dubbed the ‘King of Hollywood’ in the 1940s.

Over the years I have conducted radio interviews with people who knew the famous actor. Even ‘Clark Kent’ in Superman was named after him.

William Clark Gable was born in Ohio in 1901. He started out as a stage actor and then worked in small roles in silent films before landing supporting roles at the MGM Studios in the early 1930s.

At that time the young actor changed his name to Clark Gable

In 1932 he was cast opposite Jean Harlow in Red Dust and the world started to take notice of him.

Clark was considered to play Tarzan The Ape Man but lost out to Johnny Weissmuller.

He was reluctant to accept the role in It Happened One Night opposite Claudette Colbert but it earned him his only Academy Award in 1934.

The following year he was again nominated for an Academy Award for Fletcher Christian in Mutiny On The Bounty

I spoke to Judy Lewis who was the daughter of Clark Gable.

Judy told me the amazing story of how Clark and Loretta Young fell in love on the set of The

Whatever Happened To ... Clark Gable

Call Of The Wild in 1935. When Loretta fell pregnant they decided that the scandal would ruin their careers and an elaborate cover story was developed.

Loretta went through the charade of pretending to adopt Judy from an orphanage and never told her who her real father was.

Judy only met Clark Gable on one occasion but found out after his death when a boyfriend told her, "Oh you're Clark Gable's daughter, everyone knows that!"

Sadly Judy passed away in 2010 but thankfully she had resolved her differences with her mother Loretta Young Clark's war record is amazing; he joined the US Army Air Forces in 1942 and trained as a

● ● ● ● Clark Gable pilot. He was eventually promoted to Captain and flew over Germany in bombing raids. Clark was awarded the Air Medal and the Distinguished Flying Cros s for his service during WWII.

The notable films of Clark Gable included Red Dust, It Happened One Night, San Francisco, Mogambo and Soldier Of Fortune

In 1957 he starred opposite Doris Day in one of my favourite films Teacher's Pet

Sir Donald Sinden co-starred with Gable in the 1953 film Mogambo. When I asked him what he thought of Clark Gable his response was, "Oh Clark wasn't an actor at all. He was a superb technician, he looked lovely and the girls loved him.

“He knew all about making films but that doesn't mean he was an actor."

Clark was married five times but the love of his life was his third wife actress Carole Lombard who was killed in a plane crash in 1938.

His final film role was in The Misfits and many say it was the strain of making this film that led to his early death.

It is said he did smoke three packets of cigarettes a day. Gable was working with Arthur Miller, Marilyn Monroe and Montgomery Clift and he was quoted as saying: "The title sums up this mess. Miller, Monroe and Clift - they don't know what the hell they're doing. We don't belong in the same room together."

Clark Gable never worked in television productions.

Hollywood author James Bacon told me that the minute he heard that Clark had suffered a heart attack he raced to the Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital and arrived just as Clark was being wheeled in.

Clark said to James: "How's the food in this joint?"

Clark Gable died in the hospital 10 days later on November 16, 1960 at the age of 59.

Five months later his wife Kay gave birth to his only son John and Marilyn Monroe attended the christening. John Clark Gable is now 58 and has inherited his father's good looks.

Stateside with Gavin Wood in West Hollywood

WeHo remembers rock star Jim Morrison

■ Hi everyone, remotely from my suite at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites in West Hollywood comes this week’s news.

Died 52 years ago

■ James Douglas Morrison was an American singer-songwriter and poet who was the lead vocalist of the trio rock band, The Doors. Their hits included ‘Riders of the Storm’ ‘Light my Fire’ L.A. Woman’ ‘Touch Me’ ‘People are Strange’.

Other members were keyboardist Ray Manzarek and guitarist Robby Kreiger, who followed Jim, and supplied music backing for his sometimes-rambling songs.

Most of the Doors shows were at the legendary Whisky a Go Go, 8901 Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood which is stumbling distance to the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Suites at 8585 Santa Monica Boulevard where Jim Morrison was a regular guest.

This month, 52 years ago, Jim Morrison died.

Pamela Susan Courson (December 22, 1946 – April 25, 1974) was a long-term companion of Jim Morrison. Courson stated she discovered Morrison's body in the bathtub of a Paris apartment on July 3, 1971 at approximately 6am. He was 27 years old. The official cause of death was listed as heart failure, although no autopsy was performed as it was not required by French law.

Members out of touch

■ Older members of Congress are notorious for their lack of familiarity with modern technology. Late last month, at least three different representatives in a hearing on TikTok called the popular app ‘Tic Tac’, a breath mint available in many store checkout lines.

This is only the latest in a long line of amusing tech-related congressional miscues: Back in 2006, Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens described the internet as “a series of tubes,” and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer copped to his struggles when in 2022 he held up his flip phone and said he was “not very tech-oriented” during a speech on the Senate floor.

Elon Musk feels unsafe

■ Since becoming one of city’s highest-profile employers, the Twitter owner has had a lot to say about the state of things in the City by the Bay, raising questions about whether the social media company’s headquarters would remain there.

The billionaire has described it as “post-apocalyptic,” claimed many Twitter employees “feel unsafe” coming to work in the city’s downtown and suggested “you could literally film a Walking Dead episode in downtown SF.”

City leaders say critics are unfairly portraying San Francisco as unsafe, citing statistics that show a violent crime rate lower than many large cities.

Military families

■ Most new recruits are children of military families, but that pipeline is now under threat bad news for the Pentagon, given already acute recruitment problems, and for US military readiness.

Since 9/11 gave recruiting a patriotic boost, the military has endured 20 years of war in Iraq and Afghanistan with no decisive victories, scandals over shoddy military housing and healthcare, poor pay for lower ranks and rising rates of posttraumatic stress and suicide. And in a tight labour market, young people have plenty of options.

Nasal spray for migraine

■ The Food and Drug Administration has approved a nasal spray aimed at fast treatment for migraines, pharmaceutical company Pfizer. Zavegepant, sold under the brand name Zavzpret, was approved to treat migraines with and without aura in adults. The drug was more effective than a placebo at treating symptoms within 30 minutes and up to 48 hours later.

AI vs Breast Cancer

■ Advancements in A.I. are beginning to deliver breakthroughs in breast cancer screening by detecting the signs that doctors miss.

So far, the technology is showing an impressive ability to spot cancer at least as well as human radiologists, according to early results and radiologists, in what is one of the most tangible signs to date of how A.I. can improve public health.

Out and About Weed is harmful

■ Daily marijuana use can raise a person’s risk of coronary artery disease by a third, according to a recent study lead by Dr Ishan Paranjpe, a resident physician at Stanford University. “A growing body of evidence suggests that cannabis is not entirely without harm and may actually cause cardiovascular disease,” Paranjpe told CNN. “Thus, the decision to use cannabis must be carefully weighed against the potential for serious heart disease.”

Beware of products

■ Every day, we use soaps, lotions, deodorants, hair products and cosmetics on various parts of our bodies. But in recent years, an increasing number of reports have raised concerns about many of them. Researchers have found dangerous levels of mercury in skin lightening and anti-aging creams; they’ve linked chemicals in hair dyes and straighteners to breast and uterine cancer; they’ve traced fragrances in soaps and shampoos to poor semen quality and fertility issues. Most American children are also exposed to toxic chemicals – from a wide variety of sources that may be a cause of learning and developmental disorders, obesity and asthma.

Child star dead

■ Former child star Adam Rich died of an accidental fentanyl overdose in January at the age of 54. The ‘Eight Is Enough’ star also had non-toxic levels of alcohol and the generic version of Ativan, called lorazepam, in his system, according to an autopsy report from the LA County Medical Examiner-Coroner.

Plants are good for you

■ Plants not only brighten up a dreary room, they may also save you from cancer! While many people may know plants produce oxygen, researchers say they can also soak up harmful chemicals in the air. University of Technology Sydney researchers, in collaboration with plant scaping solutions company Ambius, have found that plants can remove almost all cancer-causing fumes from a room. “We know that indoor air quality is often significantly more polluted than outdoor air, which in turn impacts mental and physical health. But the great news is this study has shown that something as simple as having plants indoors can make a huge difference,” says Ambius General Manager Johan Hodgson.

Survey on suicide

Germs on the rise

■ The risk of getting sick from E. coli, salmonella, listeria and other foodborne germs rose to pre-pandemic levels in 2022, the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention. “Progress in reducing (intestinal) infection incidence was not observed during 2022, as influences of the COVID-19 pandemic subsided,” the CDC said in its weekly Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. “Collaboration among food growers, processors, retail stores, restaurants, and regulators is needed to reduce pathogen contamination during poultry slaughter and to prevent contamination of leafy greens.” Each year, approximately 9 million Americans are sickened by pathogens in food, according to the CDC’s Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network. Also known as Food Net, it monitors diagnosed infections caused by eight common foodborne pathogens at 10 sites in the United States. Among the millions of illnesses, about 56,000 people are admitted to hospitals and 1350 die every year. Thoroughly washing and drying your hands is the most important factor in preventing the spread of gastrointestinal infections, experts say. Other key tips include not leaving your food out at room temperature for hours at a time, washing your hands when handling raw meat, avoiding contamination of surfaces with raw meat and thoroughly washing your leafy greens and other fruit and vegetables.

■ A new report from the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention found that in 2022, suicide and homicide rates for children and young adults ages 10 to 24 in the US were the highest they’ve been in decades. Suicide and homicide were the second and third leading causes of death for this age group, both causing about 11 deaths for every 100,000 people ages 10 to 24. The homicide rate for this age group in 2022 was the highest it has been since 1997, and the suicide rate was the highest on record, since 1968. Earlier research has found a steady increase in the number of children seen in emergency rooms for suicidal thoughts, even before the COVID-19 pandemic, and nearly half don’t get the follow-up care they need. According to the CDC, about 15 per cent of children in the United States were recently treated for mental health disorders in 2022.

■ The iconic Gertrude Street Projection Festival returns for its 15th year in 2023, weaving together community, art, public spaces, night and sublime light installations for everyone to enjoy, free.

For 10 nights from July 27 – August 6, audiences will be invited to experience a confluence of projections by 11 of the Festival’s artistsin-residence, alongside community and collaborative projects, events, parties, talks and screenings.

Presented by The Centre for Projection Art, the Festival will again illuminate street facing windows and walls of public and private spaces in the inner-north.

The considered public artworks will showcase new works by some of the best emerging and established Australian artists including: Sarah Aiken, Tully Arnot, Chantal Bala, Lilah Benetti, Jamali Bowden and Leitu Bonnici, The ElectroPoetics (Bixiao Zhang), Alana Hunt, The Huxleys and Rose Chong, Tahlia Palmer, Juan Rodriguez Sandoval, Naina Sen, Melody Woodnutt and Henry Lai-Pyne.

The Centre for Projection Art’s CEO and Artistic Director, Priya Namana, said: “The 2023 Festival is a program that uses civic spaces to share the merging strands of history, technology, experience, materials, politics and emotions through the selected artworks.

“The Festival is a container that creates and holds space for our community and collaborators to

share their individual visions in a hyperlocal landscape of collective gathering. GSPF 2023 is a space for audiences to project their subjectivity and reflect with us on our collective worlds, it is a confluence of interlacing sensations.”

GSPF kicks off with the Festival’s Opening Party at Collingwood Yards on Thursda, July 27, 5.30pm - 8.30pm.

The opening party is curated by the newly-formed E.merge Agency The young people that make up E.merge Agency exist within many intersections, learning and collaborating on a new culture born from their passions, knowledge and movement.

The founders of this new youth talent agency, E.merge, say they are thrilled to curate the music for the GSPF opening, featuring local artists and global sounds.

Open to all ages, free to attend, GSP F welcomes everyone to launch the flagship Festival celebrating its 15th year.

Expect music by E.merge Agency, food by Vola Foods, and a special wintery beverage by Long Prawn

Pumping music from the outdoor sound system, E.merge Agency will curate an incredible line-up of music. E.merge is trailblazing a new ‘Australian’ diaspora, coming together through a love of music and their communities to lift up young artists.

Though all different, when

E.merge come together, something beautiful happens, generating their own confluence.

Some of the artworks set to light up the GSPF are I myself ‘am the sun, 2023 by artist Lilah Benetti, who delves into the world of fiction to illuminate lost and obscured narratives, exploring contemporary forms of resistance in the pursuit of self-determination.

Benetti is an international award-winning and critically acclaimed artist and filmmaker. Lilah considers their work to be auto-ethnographic; an amalgamation of their personal experiences interwoven within broader social and cultural histories, foregrounding Black Queer identities.

Inspired by the powerful words of renowned Senegalese filmmaker, Ousmane Sembene, the title itself serves as a catalyst for introspection, an invitation on a journey of affirming brilliance and illuminating the inseparable intertwining of Blackness and Queerness. Lilah’s work will be on display at 54-62 Gertrude St.

Murnong 2023 will also light up the Festival, in collaboration with the City of Yarra's Peel Street Projection Program. Tahlia Palmer, an artist of Murri and European background born on Whudjuk Noongar Boodjar (Perth, WA), works in a variety of mediums to explore history, identity and perception. Descended from a paternal line who survived dispossession, forced as-

similation and the Stolen Generations (NSW+QLD), and maternal Dutch grandparents who survived WWII, her art practice works on confronting the conditions that create and perpetuate inter-generational trauma, as well as finding pathways for healing.

Tahlia said: “Murnong is an ongoing audio-visual project, started in 2021 when I received a gift of yam daisy seeds. A plant of significance to my family and many others from the eastern side of this continent, it was a staple food crop for Aboriginal people before the European invasion. This plant represents sacredness, survival after colonial violence, and an ongoing connection to the women in my family and the lives and diets of our ancestors.”

This iteration of Murnong 2023 has been created especially for GSPF and has a soundtrack and video that is 32 minutes and 32 seconds in length that speaks to the presence of the past in our present and in our future, the connection of all life and the effects of colonisation.

Debuting at GSPF are two new works by Melody Woodnutt, on display at 110 Gertrude St, alongside an installation work of expanded cinema within the Mission to Seafarers Norla Dome called Fata Morgana and Death Shroud for a Ship , respectively. These works sit within a new series called Celestial Bodies

Observations with Matt Bissett-Johnson with Matt Bissett-Johnson

■ The Golden Slipper winner Shinzo is now favourite for the Golden Rose, after his win in the classic, and is a stablemate of Militarize, and from his four starts has won two and two placings, and is a nice type.

The James Cummings-prepared Cylinder was second to Shinzo, and it was quite a good run, and was sent out favourite in the Slipper, so there is big wraps on him.

The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained youngster Don Corleone failed to run on in the Champagne Stakes.

Prior to that was a good second behind Militarise in the Sires, and a good fourth in the Slipper. Goes alright on his day, and could be right in this.

Next is King’s Gambit n the Snowden camp, and is a real trier, having run third in the Golden Slipper, and is consistent.

Back on March 4, another handy type, Red Resistance, ran a creditable second behind Cylinder in the Todman Stakes at Randwick. That was his first defeat of his three starts.

Red Resistance is prepared by Gai Waterhouse and Andrew Bott at Randwick, and goes all right.

An interesting possible is Kandinsky Abstract with Chris Waller, up until May 3 ad only one start winning that day at Canterbury. He is by Zoustar from Solar Charged.

One that was most impressive winning the coveted J.J.Atkins Classic was King Colorado, with the powerful team of Ciaron Maher and David Eustace.

Having only his third run he was most impressive in beating a good field of young ones over 1600 metres.

Leading Queensland trainer, Annabel Neasham, produced a smart one in, Libertad, having only its second start, made it two from two, with a big win in the Kindergarten Stakes over 1100 metres at Randwick back on April 1.

Among the unplaced was the smart Barber, who could only run third.

The Hayes combination trained-Little Brose, won the Blue Diamond Stakes in fine style, but failed to show up in the Golden Slipper back in March.

Prior to his win in the Blue Diamond he ran second to Barber in the Blue Diamond Prelude. However, at big odds he failed to fire in the Golden Slipper, but is better than that.

Then you have the Ciaron Maher-David Eustace trained filly, Steel City, who has ability.

Finally, Tannhauser, who ran a good third in the J.J.Atkins Classic at Eagle Farm.

There are many chances for one of the real classic races for the younger horses.

With big races like the Everest, the Caulfield Guineas, the Caulfield Cup, the Cox Plate, then the Derby, the Melbourne Cup, the Oaks and the final day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

There is a lot of action to come for the Sport of Kings. Connections of brilliant Kiwi youngster, Kovalica, who is the early favourite for the Caulfield Cup to be run on Saturday October 28, could miss the big day.

A brilliant winner of the Queensland Derby over 2400 metres at Eagle Farm back on May 27, he is certainly the one to beat not only that

events. Neville Morgan, said his opinion of the horse is that he would rather him be a genuine weight-for-age horse than a handicapper.

To the rescue

■ Racing Victoria has launched a Retirement Farm Program to support retired racehorses. This will ensure that every thoroughbred racehorse in Victoria has an appropriate retirement option.

Racing Victoria has launched a new progam to formally acknowledge retirement farms across the state, to assist owners and trainers in locating a suitable home for racehorses that may not be suited to an active post-racing career.

In the same way that RV operates a network of Acknowledged Retrainers, who prepare retired thoroughbreds for their new careers away from the racetrack.

Acknowledged Farm providers will receive official acknowledgement from RV provided they meet the criteria, which has been developed to promote good health and happiness for thoroughbred racehorses during their retirement.

the Cup at Randwick. But things could be up in the air at the moment.


They have put out the vibes that they miss the Caulfield Cup, of which I think he should be a short priced favourite on his form .

From his nine starts, he has won six with three thirds, and the distance and the weight in my book, makes him a natural favourite for the big one.

One of the part-owners, Neville Morgan, feels it is a big early to make a decision like the big one for the Caulfield Cup.

His trainer has mentioned he could be even better up to 2000 metres, that the 2400 metres of the Caulfield Cup.

As mentioned early he is down to run in the King Charles III Stakes over 1600 metres, and the $10 million Golden Eagle.

He is at double figures odds for both major

The initiative is primarily designed to provide an option for owners who seek long term agistment for their retired thoroughbred.

A provider’s farm must meet a minimum standard for their property and horse management to qualify for the program.

The criteria includes,an annual property inspection by RV’s Equine Welfare Team, and for providers to claim all thoroughbreds under their care on the Off The Track Community.

In return, providers will receive several benefits including promotion of their businesses via Off The Track Community and Off The Track’s digital channels.

There will be promotion in RV’s monthly Inside Racing magazine, access to educational opportunities; tickets to socials events; and exclusive RV Acknowledged Retirement Farm merchandise. The Local Paper - Wednesday, July 19, 2023 - Page 19 Sport

Helansen (one/one) was third 3 metres away.

Rough night

■ It was a rough night for punters at Shepparton’s Tuesday fixture and very honest 8Y0 Artistic Fella-Madam Narryna mare Roslyn Gaye didn’t help the cause when chalking up her 18th success in 191 outings by taking the 1690 metre Saddleworld Shepparton Pace – first leg of the quaddie at odds of $61.

Bred raced and trained by Tongala’s Gary Merkel who snared all the spoils, Roslyn Gaye with Laura Crossland in the sulky enjoyed a sweet passage from inside the second line following the poleline leader Always Be Chloe another Goulburn Valley trained runner.

Bred and raced by Peter under the banner of Echuca Sulkies Pty Ltd, Star Down Under was bad away from outside the front line as were some of his rivals, but made ground quickly with reinsman James Herbertson lobbing one/one mid-field trailing the hot favourite Van Doren (10m) which raced outside the leader Firengrace (barrier two).

When Van Doren strode to the front on the final bend, the effort of racing exposed told and Star Down Under out wide finished best to prevail by 6.2 metres (his 7th in 53 outings) over Berriesandcherries (barrier three) which trailed

■ 2015 Inter Dominion and 2016 Ballarat Cup winner Lennytheshark sired filly Lennys Angel a daughter of Earth Angel to snare a dramatic Neatline Homes 3Y0 Pace over 2190 metres.

Trained and driven by David Aiken (Lennys trainer), the filly settled three back in the moving line from gate three as Kialla Kid led from inside her. Going forward in the last lap to join Kialla Kid on the home turn as Son Of The Shark, Island Feenix and Eye Dee Philtra all came to grief on the final bend, Lennys Angel easily accounted for Royal Appointment (three pegs) by 10 metres returning a mile rate of 1-59.3. Kialla Kid battled on gamely for third a half neck back.

■ The Haeuslers Echuca Trotters Mobile went to 6Y0 Love You-Focus On Me gelding Kyvalley Surfrider to the deafening roar of Ross Creek part-owner/trainer Katrina Fitzpatrick.

Driven by Michael Bellman, Kyvalley Surfrider was away safely from gate six to enjoy the run of the race on the back of the pacemaker Dances (gate three), before running home late along the sprint lane to blouse the leader by a neck returning a mile rate of 2-01.4. Tetra (four pegs) was third 11.1 metres away.

■ Heathcote owner/trainer Terry French combined with in-form eighteen year old Liam Older to snare the Gold Central Victoria Pace over 1650 metres aboard 4Y0 Well Said-Fun On The Run mare Interpretation. Coming out running from gate four, Interpretation was restrained to allow Community Art to cross him in what was the ‘drive of the night’ from Tayla French who had weaved in-between runners from the extreme draw.

Using the sprint lane, Interpretation gained

Allowed to find his rhythm from gate four as pole marker Hold That Gold led before taking a trail on Everybodylovesme . Iron Love (three wide) sprinted brilliantly to assume control racing for the bell and coasted for the rest of the journey, winning as he pleased by 13.6 metres in advance of Kyvalley Picasso along the sprint lane from four pegs. Everybodylovesme after looking beaten approaching the home turn rallied in the straight to finish third a metre back. The mile rate 1-58.8.

■ The Australasian Premium Trotting Sale Heat for 3Y0 Colts & Geldings over 2200 metres went the way of Kialla trainer Wayne Potter’s Aldebaran Eagle-Naked Majesty gelding Avenel Eagle with daughter Tamsyn in the sulky.

Settling four pegs from gate six and one/ one for the last lap, Avenel Eagle ran home strongly to account for Darcys Fireball (one/two last lap from the rear) by 2 metres, with Aldebaran Jensen third 1.8 metres back after racing exposed for the final circuit. The mile rate 203.5.

■ The Fillies heat saw an easy victory to the Jess Tubbs trained and Greg Sugars driven Cognati, a daughter of Majestic Son and Elusive Charm which led throughout from the pole to greet the judge by a neck from a death-seating last lap Aldebaran Miley in 2-03.4.

Crime dispute

■ Detectives from the Arson and Explosive Squad, Echo Taskforce and VIPER Taskforce have joined together to announce an operation targeting disputing organised crime syndicates believed to be linked to a series of arson attacks across Melbourne.

The three squads will link up to investigate at least 11 incidents dating back to June 24 believed to be linked to ongoing disputes between two criminal groups with links to Middle Eastern Organised Crime entities.

Those incidents include:

■ Two vehicles set alight in the driveway of a residential property on Anderson Rd, Fawkner about 5.20am on June 24;

■ An incident just after 5.35am on June 25 where a vehicle pulled up outside a house on Greenvale Drive, Greenvale and one of the occupants of the car poured an accelerant over two cars in the driveway and attempted to set them on fire;

■ An incident where offenders attempted to set a house with five people inside alight on Petros St in Fraser Rise about 1.20am on June 27. When an associate attempted to assist, his property on Hawksbury Green in Caroline Springs was set on fire. Both properties sustained significant damage;
