World-class garden open ONE of the world’s best gardens, according to the United Kingdom TV series Around the World in 80 Gardens, opens on the weekend. Di Johnson started creating an architectural garden among vineyards in the mid-1990s. It includes a 1.2-hectare Mediterranean garden, Italianate courtyard and native garden. There is also 1.6ha under vine with impressive borders of perennials, roses and shrubs. Sue and Daryl McFall bought Garden Vineyard at 174 Graydens Rd, Moorooduc, from Di and Doug Johnson three years ago. “Di is still involved, luckily for us,� said Ms McFall, an architect. “There is now a sizeable Australian garden with many plants trimmed in an English fashion so the garden can best be described as a fusion of English and Australian,� she said. Half the $20 entry price will go to the Rotary Club of Mornington, and half to Ms McFall and her business partner Val Wilson’s clothing company Moti, which will be redeemable on any item of clothing or bedding. Moti clothing, made from handwoven fabrics from India, mostly pure cottons and some linens, will be on display and for purchase. The firm donates a proportion of its annual profits to charities in India. The garden is open to the public 10.30am4pm on 16-17 November.

Unlucky 13 teachers By Mike Hast THIRTEEN teachers at Mt Eliza Secondary College have been declared “in excess� by principal Angela Pollard and the Education Department. They will remain on the payroll for 12 months while trying to find a job at other Victorian government schools. Those who have not found a position will be retrenched after the 12 months

expires. They will have a further three months (the formal notice period) to find a job before packing their bags for the final time. The move has dismayed many senior teachers at government secondary schools in the region. A teacher at another Mornington Peninsula secondary school, who did not want to be named, said some of the Mt Eliza teachers were “devastated�.

“Some are near the end of their teaching careers but others thought they had a few more years in the job,� they said. One of the teachers facing retrenchment is believed to be Susan Bollard, the 2013 VCAL Teacher of the Year.

award for their 2012 work. Student numbers have been falling at Mt Eliza secondary for several years. The school recently issued an information sheet for a canteen services tender and stated the school had “a fluctuating population of around 650 to 800�. At its peak, Mt Eliza had 1200 students. The canteen document stated “total

staff numbers are expected to remain at around 70 teaching and non-teaching staff. Some of these staff are part time.� In recent years, many parents have decided to send their children to Frankston High School and Mornington Secondary College, as they consider the schools have superior facilities and extra-curricular programs.

Deathrow mums forge kitty co-op By Chris Brennan A PENINSULA cat rescue group has encountered an “extraordinary” partnership between two young mother cats who are sharing parenting duties for their new-born kittens. “I’ve never seen anything like it before,” Peninsula Cat Rescue president Joy Herring said of the highly unusual interaction between the two felines. “Mother cats can kill each other fighting to protect their babies and we normally have to be very careful to keep them totally separate. “But these two seem to share a special bond and have taken to sharing the parenting duties together. One of them does the cleaning and the other does the feeding.” The two mother cats were among 14 adult felines rescued from a country property about four weeks ago. One of them gave birth en route to Peninsula Cat Rescue carers, but only one of her kittens survived. The second cat gave birth about an hour later, with two kittens surviving, but the stress from her ordeal meant she was unable to produce enough milk to feed them and she appeared to reject them. Carers placed the seemingly rejected kittens with with the first mother, who was producing ample milk, and she accepted them as her own. But the second mother appeared to be pining for her “lost” babies and began “crying” in anguish. “So with great trepidation and close supervision, we opened the door to where the other mother cat was caring for the babies to see what would happen,” Ms Herring explained.

Unlucky 13 teachers

Shared duties: The two young mother cats nurse their merged litter at their carer’s Mt Eliza home.

“She immediately went over to the kittens and started licking them, and then the mothers touched noses then started licking each other, and then the babies together. “It was very strange and totally unexpected. No one I’ve spoken to has ever heard of anything like this happening. “Now they’re like a family together

and share the parenting duties. They are both very young, probably only about 9 months old themselves, and they were on death row together so that might explain their unusual bond. It’s as though they understood what was going on.” The three kittens are now about four weeks old and “thriving” under their merged family arrangement.

Continued from Page 1 Mt Eliza Secondary College, which started in 1975 with almost 200 students and 16 teachers, has been trying to reduce a high debt in recent times. The school’s principal from 2010 to 2012, Geoff Petrie, last year had to cut teachers on short-term contracts and let go several ancillary staff. Education Department guidelines for managing so-called excess teachers state “employees who have been identified as excess will be provided with dedicated redeployment and career transition support while they remain in excess”. “The department has appointed Hudson as its redeployment ... provider,” the document stated. “In managing excess staff situations, principals must ensure fair treatment of affected employees [and] that the process is not used as a substitute for the procedures for managing unsatisfactory performance or the discipline procedures.”  In June, the school was involved in controversy when bushland was cleared for soccer pitches on its land facing Mt Eliza Way. An investigation was launched in conjunction with the Education Department but no public statement has yet been made.

Correction SEAWINDS Ward councillor Antonella Celi has never sought preselection for the Liberal Party as was referred to in last week’s edition in the comment piece “Antonella Celi should be first among equals”.

No tolerance on mobiles By Chris Brennan PENINSULA drivers are being warned of an impending police crackdown on the illegal use of mobile phones. The blitz will coincide with tough new penalties introduced this month. From 25 November, drivers caught using a mobile phone handset will be fined $433 and lose 4 demerit points, up from current penalties of $289 and 3 points. P-platers caught will face a total ban on mobile phone use, including hands-free. Under sweeping changes to mobile phone rules introduced by the state government, the ban on mobile phone use is being extended from P1 drivers on red P-plates to P2 drivers on green Pplates, which includes years two, three and four of holding a probationary licence. Acting Sergeant Adrian Shelbourne of Rosebud highway patrol said police would be out in force across the peninsula over summer enforcing the new rules. “We’ll be taking a zero tolerance approach to drivers using their phones behind the wheel,” he said. “It’s such a dangerous distraction for drivers to not have their entire focus on the road, especially

when they are on unfamiliar roads like many holidaymakers on the peninsula tend to be. “It is potentially even more dangerous than being behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol because a mobile device can take a driver’s entire attention away from the road, and even it that’s only for a couple of seconds, the results can be deadly.” He said the influx of holidaymakers in summer made peninsula roads especially dangerous. Drivers using hand-held GPS and other mapping devices while behind the wheel was also banned, he said. Road Minister Terry Mulder said the new regulations were some of the most significant changes to the state’s road rules in years and reflected the “growing problem of distraction, which has the potential to result in deaths and injuries on our roads”. “We want to see using mobiles while driving become as unacceptable as drink-driving now is,” he said. “We want parents to talk to young drivers about not starting the habit, and we want people who do it now to stop. “We have all sat at the lights and seen people with their heads down, playing with their phones. We have to decide as a community that this is not

on, and make it as stupid as drink-driving.” He said a majority of young and middle-aged drivers had admitted using a mobile phone at some stage while driving, with 88 per cent of young drivers reporting using mobile phones to read text messages and 77 per cent to send texts. “The message clearly isn’t getting through, which is why we are making the fines and penalties even tougher. Any driver caught using a mobile phone illegally risks losing one-third of the 12 demerit points for a single, stupid act. P-platers will risk hitting their five demerit point limit. “We know these acts can, and have, caused deaths and injury on our roads.” Assistant Commissioner for road policing Robert Hill welcomed the tougher approach, saying mobiles were the biggest cause of driver distraction on the state’s roads. He said police would ramp up their enforcement efforts leading into the Christmas and New Year period. “Taking that call, sending that text, it’s just not worth it. It just is not worth losing your life, or someone else's.” TAC research shows drivers taking their eyes off the road for more than two seconds doubled their chance of having a crash.

Trivia nights revived to find smartest buff MORNINGTON restaurateur John Crossin is reviving trivia nights in aid of Variety, the children’s charity. The first at his Harba Oyster Bar and Grill is at 7.30pm on Thursday in the upstairs Sunset Lounge, which overlooks Mornington Park and offers glimpses of the harbour and Port Phillip. Trivia nights at Crossin’s previous venue Beaches were wildly popular in the 2000s with trivia buffs coming from far and wide to

compete for the mantle of smartest people in the room. Harba’s function manager Michelle Nixon said the winning table would receive 50 per cent of combined entry fees, second place 30 per cent and Variety 20 per cent. “We hope to run trivia nights every Thursday,” she said. “Tables will have 2-6 people. Any guests wishing to turn up by themselves will be

introduced to an appropriate group, so there is a nice social element too. “They will be loads of fun, entertaining, and we will have prizes and giveways.” Mr Crossin has supported the charity for more than a decade as a participant in the annual Variety Bash through various parts of outback Australia. Entry is $5 a person. Details: 5975 1183 or email: info@harba.com.au

Net effect: A new BlueNet police car is set to hit the peninsula and Frankston regions this month. The cars are based on a prototype (pictured) tested late last year and are the latest high-tech weapons in the police arsenal. Picture: Gary Sissons

Net set for dodgy drivers By Cameron McCullough POLICE are set to add a new weapon to their arsenal – vehicles with externally mounted cameras that can scan number plates while moving. Police previously had to be parked to operate the cameras. Four so-called BlueNet vehicles are expected to hit the road later this month or in December. One will be based at Carrum Downs police station and patrol Frankston and Mornington Peninsula roads. BlueNet has been developed by

Eyewear As Individual As You Are

Victoria Police and is the first fully integrated Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system in Australia. The system is designed to catch unregistered vehicles, “vehicles of interest” and unlicensed drivers. Police said “this technology gives police greater ability to detect and remove more high-risk and unauthorised drivers and unregistered vehicles from Victorian roads”. “Unauthorised drivers pose a high risk to road users and the expansion of the BlueNet program will

substantially improve our detection rates,” Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill said. The vehicles are an improvement on the existing system where a roadside camera scans number plates and a combined police and sheriff department operation further along the road stops drivers. ANPR operations appear to target lower socioeconomic areas with recent police operations in Hastings and Rosebud West, and a high success rate for operations in the western suburbs of Melbourne.

Avoid Yuletide custody battles PARENTS on the Mornington Peninsula are being urged to ensure shared access arrangements for children over Christmas are organised as early as possible to avoid turning the holiday period into a battleground. Peninsula Community Legal Centre is urging families to try to agree on where their children will be staying during Christmas and make any court applications to change parenting orders sooner rather than later to avoid an expected court backlog. Where no arrangements have been made, many parents leave it until too late to bring applications for parenting orders over the challenging school holiday and Christmas period, the legal centre’s principal lawyer Victoria Mullings said. “Christmas can be a particularly difficult time for separated families, especially if parents are not able to communicate and agree about Christmas,” she said. “When parents leave it too late, the children might be shuttled between warring parents and Christmas becomes a difficult time for them. “We encourage parents to discuss this time of year and come to an agreement well in advance. “If necessary, parents should look at mediation services to assist them to reach a compromise. “Applying to court to make a decision for them about arrangements for the chil-

dren should be the last resort.” She said the Family Law Act made children’s interests the number one priority in any decisions made, including consideration of the benefit to the children of having a “meaningful relationship” with both parents. This meant ensuring children have the opportunity of enjoying Christmas and other special occasions with both parents at least once every two years, provided children are protected from harm. “Because there are so many court applications by parents regarding Christmas arrangements, some courts employ extra staff during late November and December to help manage the extra case load,” Ms Mullings said. “Seadlines are imposed for filing urgent applications in relation to Christmas arrangements for children. “If an application is filed after the deadline has passed, the court is unlikely to be in a position to make a decision in that particular matter in time for Christmas. “We strongly encourage parents to resolve their parenting issues before Christmas through mediation and by communication and cooperation in a civil manner, so their children are able to enjoy a stress-free and happy Christmas.

No release for catch of day By Mike Hast CARRUM angler David Steen is the new Victorian snapper champion after hauling in a monster 10.26 kilogram fish during this year’s Tea Tree snapper fishing competition on Port Phillip Bay and Western Port. But the competition was marred by claims of numerous dead snapper being tossed overboard by anglers keen to “upgrade” their catches with heavier fish, sparking calls for rule changes to the event. Steen was among 1971 anglers, including 218 juniors, who weighed-in more than 1800 fish over the course of the competition, which began in the early hours of Friday 1 November and concluded on the Saturday afternoon. Recreational fishermen packed launching ramp car parks on Western Port and Port Phillip to take part in Australia’s biggest salt water recreational fishing competition. Official weigh-ins were held at Patterson River and Mornington Racecourse, where prizewinners were announced. The Victorian Snapper Report Facebook page was brimming with reports and comments about anglers throwing dead fish back into the water after catching a bigger snapper. The problem was most prevalent in northern Port Phillip. Some posts were highly critical of anglers, calling those who had thrown away fish “greedy”. Others asked anglers who had seen people “upgrading” if they had recorded boat rego numbers. Another said anglers who had not caught fish should go to Fawkner Beacon and collect a snapper from the many floating in the water. The problem is connected to Victorian bag limits of three fish over 40 centimetres and seven smaller fish for a total of 10. In the mid-2000s, about 6000 fish were caught at one event, angering fishing authorities and environmentalists.

Grinning and winning: David Steen shows off his monster catch.

Snapper Point Angling Club thought it had solved the problem of overfishing when it started giving random capture prizes such as boats with motors and trailers rather than to those with the biggest fish. One angling professional, who did not want to be named, said the club could solve the problem easily. “We need to have catch and release,” he said. “The club could issue fish rulers and fishos take a picture on a smart phone and send it to the club. Prizes could be randomly drawn from phone numbers to encourage participation.”

Results Open section winners: Heaviest: David Steen of Carrum (10.26 kg), new Victorian snapper champion. Second heaviest: Vic Way of Bayswater North (9.43 kg). Third heaviest: Rob Zenz of Berwick (9.28 kg). Junior section winners: Heaviest fish: Sofia Howard of Wallan (8.25 kg). Second heaviest: Harry Dettmann of Coldstream (7.75 kg). Third heaviest: Jay Derbincat of Hoppers Crossing (6.64 kg).

Bidders to shell out for scallop licence PORT Phillip scallops will be back on the menu after the start of an expression of interest (EOI) process for the licence to a new hand-harvest scallop fishery. The fishery was announced in September and the EOI process will be followed by a public auction for a single access licence. Minister for Agriculture and Food Security Peter Walsh said: “The Victorian government is very pleased to offer this exciting opportunity, which will generate local business and employment. “The development of this new, niche fishery will also provide an additional, sustainable supply of fresh Victorian scallops.” Mr Walsh said there was already broad support for the fishery. “Following from the EOI, all suitably qualified commercial operators will be able to bid for the single licence at an auction to be held early in 2014. Eligible commercial entities might be individuals, single corporations or co-operatives.” Mr Walsh said there had been many enquiries about establishing such a fishery following the closure of dredge fishing in Port Phillip in 1997. “The single licence and a conservative total allowable commercial catch across six subzones will ensure careful management of the resource,” he said. “Auctioning the licence is a fair, open and transparent method of allocating this public resource given there are no existing rights to the fishery but there have been multiple enquiries made about such a proposal over the years.” He said existing recreational scallop fisheries in Port Phillip would be protected as the commercial licence holder would be excluded from harvesting in recreational zones. The EOI process closes on 18 December. More information can be found at www.depi. vic.gov.au/scallops

Hospital misses targets: reports

Honoured duo: Val Wilson, left, and Vicky Sapkin earned awards for their work.

Recognition for historians VAL Wilson and Vicky Sapkin of the Mornington and District Historical Society have been honoured at the Victorian Community History Awards. The awards are jointly organised by the Royal Historical Society of Victoria and the Public Record Office of Victoria. Ms Wilson’s work on the website of the pioneer graves at Mornington Cemetery won the best multimedia award, which she adds to an earlier prize for the work in the National Trust and Mornington Peninsula Shire Council Heritage Awards.

Her work on the website was assisted by the shire’s digitisation officer Murray Adams. Ms Sapkin was the driving force in getting a brochure printed – aided by a grant from the shire – about a walk along the Esplanade showing historical buildings and Mornington Park together with its many historical aspects. Her work received a commendation award. The Bayside Polio Group’s book Iron Wills: Victorian Polio Survivors’ Stories, edited by Fran Henke, received a commendation.

By Chris Brennan FRANKSTON Hospital has been revealed as among the state’s worstperforming emergency departments, failing to meet the majority of targets set by the state government for timely treatment of patients. Victorian hospital annual reports tabled recently in state parliament show nearly all emergency departments struggled to transfer patients from ambulances within specified time frames over the past financial year. Frankston Hospital, which is operated by Peninsula Health, was able to transfer patients from ambulances within the required 40-minute time frame just 56 per cent of the time – well short of the target of 90 per cent set by the state government. This was a key cause of ambulances “ramping” at hospitals and was undermining Ambulance Victoria’s ability to respond to new cases. Ambulance Victoria data shows ambulance response times have gone backward for the third year in a row, with 27 per cent of life-threating emergencies not responded to within 15 minutes and nearly a quarter of ambulance transfers to hospitals taking longer than 40 minutes. The performance data for the hospital also showed that only 49 per cent of emergency patients were able to leave

with four hours, despite a target of 75 per cent, while just 54 per cent of category 2 elective surgery patients were treated within 90 days, well short of the target. However, Rosebud Hosptial, also operated by Peninsula Health, performed far better, meeting or exceeding most of the treatment targets. Labor MP Jude Perera said the reports showed patients were suffering at hospitals across the state as they were forced to wait longer for ambulances to arrive as well as emergency care and elective surgery. Mr Perera, whose electorate takes in a large portion of Frankston City, said the Napthine government had “lost control” of the health system and accused Frankston independent MP Geoff Shaw of “sitting on his hands and doing nothing” to remedy the situation. “These documents prove what doctors, nurses and paramedics have been saying for a long time now – that our health system has never been as bad as it is now. “The state’s health system is struggling to cope and is starved of resources due to $826 million in Napthine government cuts,” Mr Perera said. “These reports show the government is failing everywhere – in our clogged emergency departments, in providing

elective surgery, and through the performance of our ambulance system. “Frankston Hospital is feeling the pressure too, failing on nearly all of its key indicators.” The state Labor Opposition also accused the Napthine government of preventing the release of data detailing falling ambulance response times. Labor’s Parliamentary Secretary for Health, Wade Noonan, said Opposition request to access the data had been denied for the reasons that the data would “undermine public confidence in the ambulance service” and cause a “downturn in Ambulance Victoria memberships”. The letter outlining the rejection of Labor’s request also stated that the information could cause a “public controversy”, and could be used in the current EBA dispute with the ambulance union. “This action by Ambulance Victoria strikes at the heart of the integrity of the Freedom of Information regime in Victoria,” Mr Noonan said. The Peninsula Health annual report was among dozens of major metropolitan hospital, Department of Health and Ambulance Victoria annual reports to be tabled before parliament on the last day allowable under reporting requirements in a move labelled as a “cynical dump” by the Opposition.

Old ritual for a safe season on the water BOATS from the Coast Guard, Victoria Police, Victoria Marine Rescue, lifesaving clubs and the SES were blessed by the Venerable Alan Hughes, Archdeacon of Frankston, on Sunday. The practise, organised by the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association for more than 30 years in conjunction with St Paul’s Anglican Church in Frankston, comes from European fishing communities’ practice of blessing their fleet’s safe return at the beginning of each fishing season. The event started with a church service at St Paul’s at 10am before participants walked down to Frankston pier. Frankston Council had arranged a temporary gangway to enable people to walk on to the pier, which is undergoing renovation, expected to be completed by the end of November. The Frankston Flotilla was the first land-based coast guard HQ in Australia. Commander Anthony Mayall said the annual blessing of the Fleet was a symbol of his flotilla’s preparation to safely provide an emergency service to the boating public on Port Phillip and Western Port. “We encourage all the boating and fishing fraternity to regularly check the serviceability of their vessel, ensure they have and use appropriate safety equipment, and to the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard App called Safetrx for every trip so if you need assistance, we will be able to locate you.” The Safetrx App is at Google Play and the Apple App Store.

All aboard the multicultural express THE Frankston railway line will be transformed into an all-singing, all-dancing multicultural festival on Sunday 17 November. The free, family-focused festival will reveal different cultures at three stations. Travellers on the line between 11am and 3pm need only step off the train for a short time to experience a range of food and music – African at Frankston; Turkish at Mentone and Indian at Caulfield. There will be roving entertainers on the trains. “By holding these events at the same time, the message will be the Frankston line is home to rich and diverse cultures that offer different ways of life which all Victorians can enjoy,” co-organiser Thelma Christensen of Frankston Multicultural Network said. Some public transport travellers have experienced antisocial and discriminatory behaviour. Through this festival, organisers hope all communities can experience the value and enjoyment offered by diversity, she said. “By holding these events at train stations this celebration can reach many Victorians who do not normally attend multicultural events, giving them the opportunity of experiencing the positive benefits of cultural diversity,’ Metro’s stakeholder communications manager Chris Fletcher said. “This will build greater confidence among multicultural commuters to travel by train. It should also give

New chairlift by 2015 summer By Mike Hast CONSTRUCTION of the $14 million Arthurs Seat chairlift could start as early as next spring and be completed before the end of 2015, says project chief Simon McKeon. Mr McKeon, head of Arthurs Seat Skylift, said it was hoped to submit a “package of reports” to Mornington Peninsula Shire and Parks Victoria before the end of the year. “If all goes well, we’re hoping to get approval by the end of the first quarter of 2014,” he told The News. “We’ll run a tender process with major chairlift makers such as Poma and Doppelmayr, and hope to start assembly and construction this time next year.” Mr McKeon said it would be manufactured overseas as there was no one in Australia making gondola chairlifts, but Skylight company would use local builders for top and bottom stations, which would include kiosks/cafes. The all-gondola lift would arrive in boxes, assembled and lifted into place. When it opens, it will be more than nine years since the iconic peninsula attraction last operated. It was permanently shut down by WorkSafe in May 2006 after the last of three major incidents, which included the January 2003 collapse of one of eight pylons that injured 12 people and stranded dozens more. In March 2004 an elderly woman’s legs were crushed when her chair slid down the cable and collided with another chair. Mr McKeon said the company had been busy since he addressed a

Dromana public meeting in March. “We’re asking Parks Victoria to invest $1.5 million to improve Arthurs Seat State Park, mainly for extra parking. “We didn’t want to race ahead.” He said there had been plans to upgrade the state park for many years. The existing parking area at the bottom of Arthurs Seat would be redesigned to accommodate more vehicles. An existing overflow area would be improved. A new parking area would be needed at the top, he said. Arthurs Seat Skylift had commissioned reports to go with approval applications, he said. “We’ve done reports on such things as erosion, fire, acoustics, the environment, and cultural heritage with only the fire plan yet to be finalised.” He said Arthurs Seat was a recognised “hot spot” and the company had been consulting with the CFA. “We’ll be able to get everyone off the chairlift in seven minutes in the event of a fire,” he said. There would be a large tank of water for fighting fires. A lookout tower would be built as part of stage two. “We’ll get the chairlift up and running before considering the tower.” The project will require clearing of a wider corridor up the mountain. The existing corridor is 8-10 metres wide. Mr McKeon said the gondola lift would need about 14 metres. Trees would be planted after the chairlift had been installed, he said. “We want to plant as close to the chairlift as possible.”

Start in sight: Artist’s drawing of the Arthurs Seat chairlift top station released by the preferred consortium headed by Simon McKeon in May 2011. No new drawings have been released as yet. The viewing tower at right will be built in stage two.

He said Skylift had identified private land next to the state park and would offer it to Parks Victoria as a so-called vegetation offset for any clearing. Arthurs Seat Skylift was selected by the Brumby Labor government in October 2010 to build a chairlift. It was given a 50-year lease, which required an amendment of the National Parks Act. At the time, it was hoped the chairlift would be operating by 2013. Mr McKeon said Skylift hoped the chairlift would be used by a wide variety of people including senior citizens,

Shire probe over helicopter flights By Mike Hast TWO helicopter flights to Red Hill Estate winery on Saturday 26 October are being investigated by Mornington Peninsula Shire. Shire spokesman Todd Trimble said the winery in Red Hill South did not have a permit for flights. The flights were reported to the shire by residents living across the valley from the winery. One resident, who did not want to be named, told The News the helicopter circled the valley before landing and after takeoff. “It scares the heck out of you,� they said. The flights have revived concerns about private helicopter flights to tourism destinations and private properties on the peninsula. The shire has been wrestling with the issue for more than 10 years following a number of highprofile cases and at least two visits to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. In 2003, trucking magnate Lindsay Fox had a win when the VCAT overturned a shire decision banning a helicopter from landing at his Portsea property. At the time, Mr Fox said people who objected were motivated more by envy than legitimate concerns about disruption or noise. That same year, Visy Industries then-chief executive Harry Debney was refused a permit to land a helicopter at his Red Hill farm, which neighbours said he had been doing for some time. In 2008 the shire took air transportation company Inchalla Nominees Pty Ltd to the VCAT over flights to Martha Cove development at Safety Beach in early 2006 and won. The Fox and Inchalla cases are cited in a “practice note� issued by the state government’s Department of Planning in December 2012 that explains how helicopter activity is regulated by the planning system. In 2003, then-mayor David Renouf and councillors asked shire officers to look for suitable landing sites on the peninsula.

“It’s going to be a very hard job because I can just about guarantee that anyone living within a couple of kilometres of those proposed sites will object. However, strategically I think we need to do that.� In November 2004, five helipads sites were suggested: Truemans Rd Reserve, West Rosebud; Long Point Reserve, Boneo; White Hill Reserve, Dromana; Hastings foreshore; and Mt Eliza Regional Park. The sites were met by stiff opposition, leading in August 2005 to council effectively abandoning its search for helipads by passing the problem to the state government. The issue went quiet for a while but reared its head in late 2011 when the council dealt with a review of helicopter use by the Department of Planning and Community Development. Some of its recommendations did not suit the shire. Shire director Alex Atkins said they appeared “geared to deregulating the low frequency use of helicopters�. He said no case had been made to strategically justify the deregulation. Mr Atkins said there was a need for a better network of helicopter landing sites throughout the state and this should be dealt with by the Department of Transport. The proposals advocated by Mr Atkins were endorsed by councillors at a meeting in September 2011. Under its current policy, council has no objection to the use of helicopters by emergency services, including police and ambulance, but requires a planning permit for other takeoffs and landings, except at Tyabb airfield. Up in the air: Helicopters used by emergency services including police rescues (right) are not restricted but private flights are banned without a planning permit.

Land use affects population, economic growth FRANKSTON author Sheila Newman’s Demography, Territory and Law: Rules of Animal and Human Populations is one of four books developing an evolutionary and ecological sociological study of the biological basis of politics, economy and demography. It is a broad-ranging, multidisciplinary approach to the study of human society, which sociology long ago abandoned for a descent into jargon, word games and unsubstantiated theory, says Joseph Wayne Smith in a review of the book. Smith is a member of the Discipline of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in the School of Paediatrics and Reproductive Health at the University of Adelaide. Not so for evolutionary sociologist Newman (pictured) who believes and demonstrates that sociology can be scientific. The subtitles of coming volumes in her master work are: Volume 2: Land Tenure and the Origins of Capitalism in Britain; Volume 3: Land Tenure and the Origins of Modern Democracy in France; Volume 4: After Napoleon: Incorporation of Land and People. The collected works promise to be one of the most important contributions to sociology in recent times, Smith said. Newman systematically applies insights from a wide range of sciences. She is a French speaker as well as other Latin-based languages, giving her access to debates outside of the Anglosphere. The principal thesis of Rules of

Animal and Human Populations is that both human and animal societies have distinct patterns of dispersal. These affect the size of populations, and in humans, the very nature of economic and political systems. Thus, different land-use, planning and inheritance systems have different outcomes, with some systems resulting in sustainable steady-state economies, while others are geared to exponential growth, the ultimate price of which is collapse. Newman argues these seemingly unstoppable forces of population and economic growth, which are leading Anglophone countries such as the United States, Australia, Britain and Canada to overshoot, do not exist in the Western continental European systems. Europe’s population is already too big and causing environmental destruction, but natural attrition is downsizing the population to more sustainable levels. Part of the problem with Australia’s runaway growth in population, Newman points out, is that people, as in other Anglophone countries, have little democratic power to defend communities from the assault of the forces of the market in contrast to continental Europe where the state controls most land use. Newman subjects this religion of progress to a penetrating critique. Progress requires vast quantities of materials and energy, in the form of fossil fuels. What happens in complex computer societies if there is no longer abundant fossil fuel? Is freedom, democracy

and “progress” in such complex societies a product of relatively cheap fossil fuel, and will these institutions disappear in the coming age of scarcity? Her answer is “yes”, for democracy in the sense of full participation in decisions is more likely in small communities not based on techno-industrialism. She sees “peak oil” and the rapid depletion of other resources needed for technoindustrial societies to grow as major forces terminating their lives. Dr Newman also discusses myths of fertility and mortality that have dominated contemporary anthropology. Rules of Animal and Human Populations combines innovative hypotheses, critical thinking of the

Does God Love This World?

“For God so loved the world He gave His Only son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send His son to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already..”.(John 3:16-18 Bible). God loves the world & everything & everyone in it, there is no question of this! No matter what you have done or who you are, God’s loving arms are held open wide for you. He loves you! There is no-one or nothing that God’s love cannot reach to heal, forgive & set free. “For God So loved..”.No-one can love like God does, as He is love, pure, holy, complete. When God says He loves you, then you have available the very favour & acceptance of God almighty. “If God is for you then who can be against you.” I would rather the favour of God than the stamp of approval of any friend or king or prime minister. As God’s word cannot be broken & reaches into eternity. Why did He give His son? God is Holy & sin cannot enter His presence. God Hates sin but loves the sinner. However the sinner if full of sin & must pay the consequences for that sin. “The wages of sin is death/hell, but the gift of God is eternal life”. The punishment for our own actions is far too much for us to bear, so God made a way for us to be pardoned, forgiven, set free from our due penalty which we deserve, by sending Jesus, God’s only loved & begotten son to come & pay the price for us. He took our place as a substitute. He took the punishment that we should rightfully receive for all our wrong, sin, selfishness, pride & greed, adultery, theft, murder & the list goes on & on. Now He offers it as a FREE gift & pardon. All we need to do is believe! Isn’t it time you came to God?

highest calibre and a firm commitment to seek facts rather than be bound by politically correct dogmas. It is scholarship at its best, which is now being frequently done outside the intellectually stifling confines of the modern university. In a second review, Dr Peter Pirie, a retired professor at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, says the book is original, enjoyable and thoughtprovoking with the additional virtue of quoting one of his own works at some length. Newman’s book examines the rules, workings and effects of economic, political and social systems as they have developed in modern societies as compared with the same systems as they applied to traditional societies,

he wrote. The Pacific Islands, because of their small dimensions, relatively recent human settlement and varied histories of colonialism are particularly useful as examples of the transitions. Newman’s interest in Pirie’s work lay in the instances described in which Pacific Island populations did not conform to the theory of demographic transition. Pirie suggested the surge in fertility that followed the introduction of effective public health in most colonial territories was not, as was then commonly described, a return to “traditional” levels that had been disturbed by the introduction of alien diseases following their “discovery” and colonisation by European powers. It was instead a destabilisation that could lead to unsustainable population densities and poverty if not checked by limiting birth numbers or permitted emigration. In the absence of the vast majority of communicable diseases that could have depressed population densities, traditional societies on the islands employed an ingenious variety of ways of limiting human reproduction in the interests of keeping population densities in comfortable relationship with local resources.  Sheila M Newman, Demography, Territory and Law: Rules of Animal and Human Populations, Countershock Press, Lulu.com, 2013 (paperback).

FEATURE PROPERTY

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Grand manor TAKING its name from a suburb in south-east London, Bexley Heath is set in peaceful Balnarring, a world away from its Old Dart namesake and the busy A2 motorway that weaves through it. Totally private, the property is accessed via a tree-lined driveway that slowly reveals a grand, stately home. The house is surrounded by an expansive lawn area and an incredible variety of trees and shrubs that are sure to keep the green thumb of the family happy for many hours. From the wide entry, resplendent with gleaming floor tiles, is a large formal lounge featuring a fireplace with beautiful marble surrounds, a separate study, and magnificent formal dining room with large windows that provide a serene outlook to the ornamental lake. Also on the ground floor is a spacious kitchen with a walk-in pantry and a delightful dining area with garden views through a bay window. A separate family room opens out to an alfresco timber deck, and along one side of the home is an undercover entertaining area with fabulous bar and barbecue facilities. There are three double bedrooms upstairs; two share a second bathroom while the palatial master bedroom is complete with an ensuite and spa, and access out to a private verandah. The rumpus room on this level provides handy extra living space or a play area for children. The property measures about 2.75 hectares and the grounds and surrounding outbuildings are excellent. A boat-house style dwelling set on the banks of the lake features a lounge, kitchen and bathroom, and can accommodate up to eight people. There is a cubby house with swings and a slide, and a secondary house with two mezzanines that will sleep a further four to six people. The property is set up for equestrian pursuits, with space for two horse floats. In addition, there are two stables, loose boxes, arena and round yard, as well as many other facilities for a home business. Beautifully private, this tranquil property is surprisingly close to Balnarring village. Be sure to experience the wisteria walk set in a water lily alcove on the lake.

Strength training for fitness, health, vitality

Helping kids put best foot forward SOME common observations or concerns with regards to children’s feet and legs include: flat feet, growing pains and shin pain. These are often of great concern to parents, so we asked leading sports podiatrist Dr Paul Dowie from Foot & Leg Pain Clinics to clarify. Flat feet It’s a common misconception that the appearance of flat feet in children is cause for concern. This is not always the case. The presence of flexible flat feet in children is usually painless and perfectly normal in many cases. In very young children, the fat pad in the arch of the foot may give an appearance of a flat foot but this is often not the case. The important thing to understand is that flat feet are not something parents should worry about, unless there is pain or balance issues. Children with diagnosed flat-foot deformity will have instability in the foot and therefore foot, arch, heel or ankle pain. Excessive rolling inward of the ankles also often leads to lower back, hip, knee, or leg pain. If a child regularly complains of pain and it’s interfering with normal play and leading to inactivity, it should always be investigated by a podiatrist experienced with assessing and treating musculoskeletal issues, optimally a sports podiatrist. Pigeon toe and out toe The appearance of in-toeing (pigeon toes) or

out-toeing (duck feet) may affect the capacity of a child to run, jump or balance well. These issues may be assisted during the developmental years and can be thoroughly checked by a sports podiatrist. Growing pains Non-specific growing pains in children and teenagers are a common complaint, often causing deep, ache-like leg pain during the night. Specific inflammatory growing pains can be evident in the heel (Sever’s disease or calcaneal apophysitis) or at the knee (Osgoodschlatters disease). These are often due to overstrain of the growth plates of growing bones, particularly in very active kids. In such cases physical activity should be reduced and a sports podiatrist consulted as soon as possible. With correct management, sporting activities can be continued. Shin pain Medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), anterior leg pain and compartment syndrome, all commonly referred to as shin splints, are also quite common. Again, these issues should be checked by a sports podiatrist and with proper diagnosis, can often be easily addressed. If you or your child have any foot or leg pain you can get expert help from Dr Dowie at Foot & Leg Pain Clinics in Mt Eliza. Mention this article when booking and get $50 off initial consultations. Call 1300 328 300.

By Judy Mawson of Curves Mornington WORKING your muscles not only builds bones but also lowers blood pressure and arteryclogging cholesterol. It can help regulate insulin levels, reduce stress, control depression and can even help to ward off dementia. Your Curves 30-minute complete workout uses hydraulic-resistance, strength-training machines that are specially designed for women. They allow you to tone your muscles and get a great cardiovascular workout at the same time. Hydraulic machines allow you to push forward with one muscle group and pull back with the opposing muscles. Gravity doesn’t help or hinder your workout the way it does with free weights and traditional weight-resistance machines. As you push and pull opposing muscle groups, the intensity easily elevates and sustains your target heart rate and works muscles symmetrically. Another bonus of hydraulic-resistance machines is that because there are no weight stacks to manage, you don’t need strong muscles

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

School’s bad run of luck, high-class concert planned Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 15 November 1913. VERY unsatisfactory conditions prevail at the new State school, No. 3544. About a fortnight ago the head teacher, Miss Audley, was taken ill, and obtained leave of absence on that account. For several days, however, no teacher was sent to take her place, and nobody seemed to know when one was expected to arrive. Since then, a teacher from the suburbs was in attendance for a few days only, and during the past week the school has remained empty again, with the result that the children are left wandering about the roads, after having put in an appearance at the school to see if a teacher has arrived or not. *** IN aid of some local deserving cause or charity yet to be named, about Xmas time a high-class concert is proposed to be given in Frankston. The artists, which will include Melbourne’s best professional artists and theatricals, will be the guests of Mornington Road residents, who will organise and manage the concert. *** THE Frankston Brass Band will play in the street this evening (weather permitting). A collection will be taken up in aid of the uniform fund. The secretary of the Frankston Sports Club (Mr J. A. Benson) desires to acknowledge, with thanks, donations of 10s 6d each from Mr H. M. Collins and Mr L. R. N. Utber. *** MR A. Edwards, of Geelong, has disposed of his cottage in Waterloo

Place, Mornington, to Mr J. McLellan, of Three-Chain Road, Moorooduc, at a satisfactory price. *** DURING the Cup Carnival we note from the Melbourne weekly papers that amongst the guests at the Grand Rose, Melbourne, were Major, Mrs and the Misses Campbell, of Amesfield Park, Frankston. *** THE Glideway (Queensland) Sheffield handicap was last week won by the ex-Frankstonite, Frank Jolly. This is the first time he has donned the spike shoes in Queensland since he ran at the last local New Year’s Day Sports. Jolly won his heat and semi-final which he won by a clear yard. *** TENDERS for the publican’s booth and the refreshment booth for the Mornington races, which take place at the Drywood Estate racecourse on Tuesday, December 2nd, close with the secretary, Mr H. Downward, on Wednesday next, 19th inst. Entries for the various events close on Monday, November 24th. *** AT the Frankston Court of Petty Sessions, held on Monday last, before Messrs Crawford and Clements, J.P., A. Coxall, for failing to send his child to school the required number of days, was fined 5s. Wm Tabb sued John E. Burke for £2 15s, for work and labour done, but the Bench decided, after hearing the evidence, which was in direct conflict, of both parties, to adjourn the case for 11 days. ***

A MEETING of the Mount Eliza Branch of the P.L.P. was held on Wednesday last, Mrs Jas Grice presiding. Miss McDowell explained the objects of the proposed union of the P.L.P. and People’s Party, and it was unanimously decided that amalgamation would be desirable. The name of the Union will be the Victorian Liberal Union, and

Cr Geo. Keast, our old established storekeeper, has invested in a handsome Ford motor car. This is, we understand, the first importation of the kind in Somerville. will consist of Men’s League and Women’s League. *** THE Mornington Schools excursion to Royal Park took place on Wednesday last. Although it rained incessantly in the early morning, it abated before the train left Mornington, and fine weather prevailed until the afternoon, when a few showers fell. On the whole, the outing was a great success and

most enjoyable. Over 400 adults and children from Mornington and Osborne boarded the special, and a good number were picked up at Moorooduc, Mornington Junction, and Langwarrin. *** THE last of the series of socials held under the auspices of St. Paul’s Club, Frankston, eventuated in the Mechanics’ Hall on Saturday evening last. There was a splendid attendance, and a most enjoyable evening was spent. Mr R. T. Picking acted as chairman, and the following programme was gone through: Orchestral item, Frankston Orchestra; part song, St. Paul’s Choir; song, Miss A. Bowell; song, Mr W. G. Jennings (encore); recitation, Miss Sheridan; orchestral item, Frankston Orchestra; comedietta, “A Regular Fix,” Messrs Elliott, Allan, Hague, Bailey and Ellis, and Misses Williams, Reynolds, Picking and Baxter. After the programme, the chairman thanked those who had so ably assisted, especially Mr Jennings for the trouble he had taken. Supper was then handed round, after which a short dance, which proved very enjoyable, was held. *** CR Geo. Keast, our old-established storekeeper, has invested in a handsome Ford motor car. This is, we understand, the first importation of the kind to Somerville, and we wish Mr Keast every success on his new venture. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason conducted a successful sale here on Wednesday. There was a good

yarding and good prices were realised. Cattle were sold up to £6 6s, heifers to £2 2s, springers to £2 16s. Pigs and horses were also disposed of at satisfactory prices. A painful accident occurred to Mr D. McLaurin on Friday last. He was using an axe, which, in some manner slipped, and inflicted. a nasty gash in his instep, which necessitated medical treatment. We will be pleased to learn of Mr McLaurin’s speedy recovery. *** THE anniversary services of the Methodist Church here was celebrated on Sunday last, when Rev. G. H. Neilson preached three sermons. The 10.30 a.m. service was for the Sunday School children, and the subject of “Spiders” interested them very much. The kindergarten children sat on the platform in their special chairs, and after the service took their places in their classroom, and parents visited them while at their studies. The afternoon and evening services were well attended. A special feature of the services was the singing by an augmented choir in the church. Those who were capable of judging stated that it was the best music given by the choir in the church. The ‘parts’ were nicely balanced. The anthems rendered were:- “Bless the Lord O My Soul,” “How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sound,” and “ What are these.” Miss Annie Barber tastefully and sympathetically officiated at the organ. Mrs Alfred Thornell decorated the church in her artistic manner, and the minister publicly commented on the beauty of the decorations. The collections for the day amounted to £16 odd.

Detour de farce a Claytons detour By Stuart McCullough CLAYTONS. In the 1980s and beyond, it was said to be the drink you were having when you weren’t having a drink. It assumed that to be in a social setting without a glass in your hand was a form of heresy; right up with shaving your moustache off, failing to own a pair of thongs or being unable to open a beer bottle with your belt. More than that, it supposed we were a nation of soaks who would rather suck spilled grog from a cardboard placemat than go without and, if faced with abstinence, would go to any lengths to avoid admitting we were on the wagon. Then along came Claytons, a placebo that made you feel a little safer, all the while assuring your friends that you hadn’t turned into some kind of killjoy. But more than just an eerily brown beverage, Claytons became a full-blown adjective. The adverts may have disappeared, but the meaning has survived to this day. When people use the term now, they’re not referring to a substitute beverage but to something that, despite all outward appearances, falls short of the genuine article. A Claytons effort is not much of an effort at all. To be described as a “Claytons boyfriend” means that you’re only good for show. A Claytons offer is anything but genuine. I don’t remember my father ever owning a bottle of the brown stuff. Instead, we preferred our placebo alcoholic beverages sweeter and with bubbles. It was called Maison and was, more or less, Fanta for grown-ups. Although it was basically pretend champagne, our parents still thought it deserved the good crystal glasses. Maison was a feature at our family functions for decades but, in recent years, I’ve noticed it has receded in favour of the real thing. Maison

probably tastes a whole lot sweeter than Claytons, but that’s not enough for it to be used as an adjective. No one ever speaks of a Maison anything. For years the term Claytons has had the most hollow of rings. It was once an insult but is, I think, a far more adaptable term these days. Now that we have entered an age in which ordinarily sane people, as well as Fabio, are prepared to declare that they “can’t believe it’s not butter”, it’s clear that anything goes. For there is a time to be repulsed by fakery and a time to embrace it. After decades of resistance we are now, I think, living in the age of Claytons. We were heading down to Tyabb for a visit. At the time, work was still continuing on Peninsula Link and, as a result, we were unable to take our normal route. Instead, we were greeted with a big yellow sign that said Detour. That it was directing me away from my normal route was unsettling, but if we ignored the sign and ploughed through a worksite, I figured there was a good chance we’d either be unable to get through or that surprised workers would deeply resent our intrusion. We decided to take the hint and turned left. The rules of a detour are reasonably simple – you are directed away from your normal route but are returned to it once you’re past the obstacle. These rules have been with us for thousands of years and are well understood. Understood by all, that is, except for those responsible for this particular detour. We were expected for lunch in Tyabb, where the Maison runs free. However, having been diverted at Baxter, we now appeared to be heading directly towards Orbost. The landscape began to change as a canopy of foliage closed in overhead. Clearly we were not in Kansas

anymore, much less the greater Baxter region and I began to whisper “Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!” under my breath. Still, the detour signs continued, directing us further into the wilderness. It was unlike any detour I had ever experience before. If the road signs don’t bring you back on course, then it’s no longer a detour but a diversion. It was, in fact, a Claytons detour. Eventually, the road petered out altogether and we were left staring into the face of Bass Strait. I called my father and explained that we had been taken off course. All my brothers and sisters, it seemed, had already arrived and the first bottle of Maison was open. I told him not to wait. Robert Frost once wrote about taking the road less travelled, claiming that it had made all the difference. At the time he posted those words on his blog, I’d like to think he was probably sipping from a tumbler full of Claytons. In an age of GPS, people take the road less travelled far less frequently than they used to. Granted, life is more efficient that way, but it is less surprising also. Thanks to our Claytons detour, we were forced to travel through areas we otherwise wouldn’t have seen. Getting blown off course can be strange but it can also give you a new perspective on things. In fact, that’s exactly how the best discoveries are made. If Alexander Fleming had done a better job tidying his lab, penicillin would never have been invented. He’d done a Claytons job only. Thank goodness. In fact, I’d go so far as to say it’s something worth raising a glass of strange brown liquid to. Cheers. stuart@stuartmccullough.com Mornington News 12 November 2013

Mornington News 12 November 2013


Performance THE Rolling Stones’ Sweet Summer Sun - Hyde Park Live is released this week on DVD and Blu-Ray, and Shock Entertainment has given The News a promotional prize pack to give away. It contains a DVD, Blu-Ray and T-shirt and could be yours by sending your name and address on the back of an envelope to: Rolling Stones Live, MP News Group, PO Box 588, Hastings 3915. Chronicling the Stones’ triumphant return to London’s Hyde Park with a two-hour live concert, the highlights package includes new and unseen backstage footage. More than 100,000 delirious fans packed the venue for two spectacular concerts to see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood do what they do best.  The Stones delivered a five star performance packed with hits such as Start Me Up, Brown Sugar, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Miss You, It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll, Gimme Shelter, Doom and Gloom and Sympathy for the Devil, as well as one or two surprises. Jagger said: “It was a great gig… It was beautiful with the sun going down over Hyde Park. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Rolling Stones’ 50 years than doing it on our home patch in front of 100,000 people on a glorious summer night…enjoy it… we certainly did.” Richards commented: “Coming back to Hyde Park was like a full circle being drawn, and the band were in top form. We thought what could be more appropriate than having a great summer in London.” From the second the Stones stepped onto the stage each night, through to the dazzling pyrotechnic display that heralded the end of the show, fans old and new were treated to a nonstop, hit after hit performance, which took them through the Stones’ huge back catalogue. Richards wowed the crowds by weaving his charismatic guitar licks with Wood’s immense

solos, Jagger was on spectacular form, his boundless energy on stage matched by a number of stunning outfit changes, and Watts, the unflappable heartbeat, driving the band on through the set. Former guitarist Mick Taylor – whose live debut with the Stones took place at the original 1969 Hyde Park concert – joined the band on stage to guest on the bluesy Midnight Rambler and on closing track Satisfaction, while long-term live band members Lisa Fischer, Darryl Jones, Chuck Leavell, Bernard Fowler, Bobby Keys and Tim Ries all added their inimitable flair and finesse. Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park Live is the perfect way for concertgoers to relive their memories from the gigs, and for their fans to see the band back where they truly belong: live on stage in their hometown. The Rolling Stones’ Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park Live out on DVD and Blu-Ray 15 November. www. shock.com.au

NINE long-lost episodes of Doctor Who not seen since the 1960s have been recovered from a storeroom in Nigeria. The previously lost shows were among 11 traced to a TV relay station and the find brings back to life an entire six episode story. Archive director Phillip Morris unearthed the programs by looking up the records of overseas shipments of tapes made by the BBC. Mr Morris said: “I remember wiping the dust off the masking tape on the canisters and my heart missed as l saw the words Doctor Who. The newly found stories included The Enemy of the World (1967) and The Web of Fear (1968), both starring Patrick Troughton as the second Doctor. *** AUSTRALIA Post has officially marked the start of the festive season with the release of this year’s Christmas stamps, featuring familiar emblems and the traditional Nativity scene. “Australians enjoy sending and receiving their Christmas greetings through the post, it’s a more personal and real experience,” said Australia Post Managing Director and CEO Ahmed Fahour. The two traditional Christmas stamps depict the Virgin Mary and Christ Child and shepherds adoring the Christ Child. They are based on a painting by Australian artist Paul Newton, which is shown fully in the miniature sheet. The four non-traditional stamps feature familiar Christmas symbols: a Christmas tree, gift, candle and a bell. They are designed by Lisa Christensen of the Australia Post Design Studio. When choosing Christmas cards, senders should remember to select standard sizes (no larger than 130mm x 240m) to qualify for the 55c stamp rate for Australia and $1.70 (New Zealand), $1.80 (Asia Pacific) or $2.55 (rest of the world) stamp rate

and/or SBS World News viewers; ditto Age readers and behavioural type documentary watchers. I’ve yet to meet a sensible person who does not watch “rubbish” at some time or other. Why should they feel a sense of superiority purely because of any television show? *** MONEY may well be the root of all evil but it surely stands head and shoulders as No1 for true love. Being “in love” with your darling and love of your children, maybe even your country are high on the list, but money love reigns supreme. Heart love carries with it hope, fear, jealousy and sweet dreams. True, people regularly say money is not important, but it’s never by people who have none. All about “happiness” perhaps, but no money, no nothing. Money carries wisdom, honour, fame, graft and respect, earned or otherwise. “This is she on whom the whole world waits hand and foot, the all-powerful and all-ruling Goddess Money. No? Ask Andrew Demetriou. *** HEALTH Minister David Davis is banning smoking at train stations early next year to “improve the health and wellbeing of public transport users”. Pure clear air, apart from thousands of motor vehicles driving past while waiting. Bye-bye passive smoke, a scientific fact according to medical gurus. I commend, indeed

agree with all those people writing to newspapers on climate change backed by substantial scientific evidence. What bothers me is many of them wrote those same letters on passive smoking where, to my knowledge, there has never been any scientific proof. A strange set of preferences. Kids living in the streets, families living with poverty, a 15-year wait for public housing and our politicians are concerned about train stops? *** “SMALL business does better under a Liberal government”. I’ve heard this mournful cry for the past 50 years from the many letters to newspapers and some of my “business” friends. For the life of me I have yet to see evidence of small business owners doing better under either government. Promises, promises. Maybe they simply “feel” more secure, for unknown reasons. Small Business Minister Bruce Billson is on the job, looking at the 80 per cent market share of Coles and Woolworths. Expect nothing. *** AS a teenager it was generally accepted among my mates (similar to The Dead End Kids movies of the1930s) that my taste in music (songs, back then) was corny. This opinion remained over the years and survives to this day and I still don’t understand why? I have a spot on Arts About (3RPP 98.7 Sundays 11am to

midday) and nominate a song each week. Same comments - corny? Recently I nominated Gay Pirates by Cosmo Jarvis and the comment was “a very hip to the moment artist/ song- very impressed”. Bully for me; I’ve graduated, become arty-farty? Perhaps I’ll follow with Mario’s Ave Maria followed by Slim Dusty? Corny? It’s called taste. *** YES, I’m well aware there’s lots to write about on our political front; Tony’s live export switch, ditto the boats, weddings, Julie as Foreign Minister, Christopher Pyne re-writing teaching methods but after a long year of politics I thought I’d give it all a miss for a month. Anyway, it’s amusing reading all those letters from Liberal voters justifying Tony’s every move. *** HAVING said that, our mate Joe Hockey, best known as the Minister for Orchestrated Misinformation (“it’s time now to listen to the Australian people”?) is to axe the mining tax costing us $3.5 million, but not to worry, the cutting of the Schoolkids Bonus, the Low Income Superannuation Contribution and the Income Support Bonus will more than cover our losses. Joe (middle name blow) is in there punching, for us. The more expensive high-income super accounts remain in force. ***

A Grain of Salt THE Melbourne Cup long weekend began the influx to downtown Rye, it’s been and gone for now until the dreaded carnival arrives along with Greeks, Italians, Croatians, Lebanese, Asians, Latvians and Aussies accompanied by Range Rovers, Utes and jet skis. A veritable multicultural mishmash. Funny if we did the switch; 20,000 on a holiday in Melbourne, sashay along Swanston Street, five, six, seven abreast, bugger anyone wanting to pass, eating ice creams, shorts and bare chests for men, bikinis for the ladies, iPhones listening to Sir Cliff Richard, anklebiters and barking Shih Tzus. Trapped all of January, unless willing to risk life and limb on the long drive to Chelsea to lunch with my sisters. Not to worry, a small price to pay for 11 months of relative peace, assuming I can safely walk across the road to the Rye RSL. Think positive! Good for small businesses, Woolworths and Coles, (no specials ’till late February, except for cokes). Welcome all? *** I’M no Big Brother watcher; maybe a few episodes years back was enough. The real fascination is the reaction I get when I occasionally lie and suggest I’m looking forward to tonight’s episode, or whatever. “How can you watch that rubbish?” and the like, mostly with a superior attitude as to taste. This same reaction (though not as harsh) can come from ABC

By Cliff Ellen RANDOM thoughts: Find out who decided to improve packaging on almost everything we buy and jail them. Sleepmaker research into 1,000 people found two out of every three couples end the day by fighting; a simple “yes” would have solved their problems. Do you ever wonder what Eddie Obeid was like as a lad? Comic journalist master hypocrite Andrew Bolt: “Socialism is the refuge of the totalitarian”, on Clive Palmer; “sinister, irrational and a self-serving bully”; again the pot and the kettle. Forty per cent of underperforming teachers is plain nonsense; more accurately 90 per cent underperforming politicians. Leave my mate Ned (Kelly) in peace; he deserves it. A reconciliation game between St Kilda and Collingwood and another free trip for Nicky Winmar? Motive: more money for the AFL – to offset the Irish debacle? Dobbing in is a cancer, don’t fall for it. “Ninety per cent of politicians give the remaining 10 per cent a bad name” – Henry Kissinger Hooroo. www.ello8.com

Beer fest taps into thirsty market THE Mornington Peninsula’s premiere event for beer lovers, Beers by the Bay, is back. This year’s festival aims to build on the success of 2012’s inaugural festival. Visitors can expect up to 100 different beers and ciders, lots of great food as well as an improved selection of some of the finest wine from the region.

The peninsula’s own Kisschasy, in their first show in nearly two years, will headline the bill. Also featured are Twin Beasts (formerly the Toot Toot Toots), Fauves and The Quarry Mountain Dead Rats plus other acts to be announced. “We are excited to be able to bring the festival back for a second year,” event director Rod Stoller said. “We had loads of great feedback from last year so we are looking forward to bringing an even bigger and better festival for 2013. “Several additions have been made for this year. Most notably this year’s festival will be a family-friendly event, with a designated children’s area featuring kids rides, face painting and other amusements. “There will be several new breweries, a larger focus on wine, lots of new food stalls and a renewed focus on all things beer.” The one-­day festival is at Mornington Racecourse, Racecourse Rd, on Saturday 16 November.

Sorras in box seat against neighbours PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully THE majority of MPCA Provincial matches are in the balance as we head into day two this weekend. The only match that appears to be all over is between Sorrento and Rye, where the Sharks are just 27 runs away from victory with 10 wickets in hand. There was one match that was affected by the rain, Crib Point versus Moorooduc. They will play a one-day game this Saturday. Rye’s ordinary start to the season continued on Saturday against its neighbour Sorrento, bowled out for just 118. It appeared earlier though that Rye would not make it to 50 after the Sharks took the first two wickets before Rye had scored a run. At one stage the Demons were 3/5,

before opener Tommy Barrand (12) and Ben Ashworth (27) stemmed the tide. Skipper Darren Groves then contributed 16 and James Crowe 20, before wickets began to tumble again. Of the 118 runs the Demons scored, 20 of them were extras. Ryan O’Connor was the chief destroyer for the Sharks with 4/21 from 16 overs, while AJ King helped himself to 3/33 (including 10 maidens) from 21 overs to give him eight wickets for the season. Chris King claimed 2/35. In reply, the Sharks faced the last 20 overs of the day and clubbed 0/92, Jedd Flack unbeaten on 36 and Nick Jewell not out 47. It seems an outright win is on the minds of the Sharks. Langwarrin old stagers Danny Weare and Mal Coutts saved their

side from a shocking day with the bat against Mt Eliza. Winning the toss, the Kangas lost early wickets before Weare came to the crease. The left hander made 79 runs to take him past 200 (234) for the season. It was his second half century of the year to add to last week’s 105. Coutts joined Weare with the score on 6/110 and enjoyed a 48-run partnership with him. Coutts went on to make 46 and help push the total to 210. Tom’s Baron and Ewing took 3/56 and 3/66 respectively for the Mounties, while Sam Creffield claimed 2/28. Long Island’s batsmen have plenty of work to do on day two against Mornington. After their bowlers did the job dismissing the dangerous Doggies for just 129, their top order

wasn’t able to follow suit and will resume at 4/22 this week. Earlier in the day, Scott Phillips (4/54) and Andrew Tweddle (3/31) were at their best as they rolled the Dogs cheaply. Jake Pankhurst (36) started well for the Dogs and made his highest score for the season. Jack Heseltine (35) was then required to dig deep after a flurry of wickets. Ryan Martin (14) was the only other Mornington batsman to reach double figures. Former Mornington skipper Luke Popov stepped right up to the plate when he was given the new ball to defend his team’s score. Popov removed the top three batsmen in Paul Hartle, Aaron Paxton and Justin Bridgeman to send the Islanders onto the back foot. Stephen Hocking was the other out bastman. Heatherhill has set Peninsula Old

Boys 191 for victory. A middle order fight back saw the Hills go from 3/15 to 6/152, thanks largely to Nathan Martin (29), Matty Meagher (29) and Randil Gamage (68). The Hills lost their last five wickets for 38 runs. Jon Forrest and Dylan O’Malley both snared three wickets each for the Old Boys while Justin Parkes opened with 2/9 from seven overs. Baxter is in a commanding position against Mt Martha after making 9/246 on their home deck. Dale Irving (52), Dean Sterry (51), Leigh Patterson (44) and Daniel Warwick (30) all got strong starts against the visitors. Curtis Stone was the highlight for Mt Martha in what was otherwise a tough day. Stone claimed six wickets to give him 10 for the season.

Parkers continue impressive start DISTRICT

By IT Gully DELACOMBE Park continued its impressive start to the season with a strong batting performance against Hastings in round four of District cricket. The Parkers won the toss on their home deck and elected to bat against the Blues. The start was superb for the visitors, claiming the opening two wickets for just 19 runs. Better still, in-form batsman Jon Guthrie and his opening partner Andrew Christides were both back in the sheds. However, this brought Chris Brittain (71) and Simon Dignan together at the crease. ‘Diggers’ was hampered by injury last season and missed a bit of cricket, however, he proved with an agonising 99 runs on Saturday just how important he is to this side. Dignan was caught by Brad Watson off the bowling of Luke Hewitt, just one run short of his ton. Nick Christides then helped himself to 25 to help the home team to 9/268. Hewitt and Tim Birch were the best with the ball for the Blues with 3/55 and 3/90 respectively. Mitch Floyd opened with 2/12 from his 10 overs. Seaford had a day out with the bat, scoring 9/257 against Ballam Park. Skipper Damien Lawrence blasted 103 for the home side while David Laing joined in the run feast with 53. At the tail, Geoff Smith contributed 33 to push the total past 250. Matty Roach was the pick of the Knights’ bowlers with 4/82 from 19 overs, while Anthony Joel snared 2/29 and Matthew O’Malley 2/63. Top-of-the-table Somerville has set Pines a more than reasonable target of 237 for victory. The Eagles were in some early strife losing their top three batsmen for just one run. Pines’ opening quicks Nick Wilcox and Brett Remy removed Keith Burdett (1), Nick Marshall (0) and Jack Barbour (0) and the home side was on the back foot. Thankfully for the Eagles, the

middle order was able to get things back on track. Ben Delaney (20), Sam Delaney (43), Justin Allsop (57) and Jack Kennedy (55) all ensured that the Piners were going to have to chase a reasonable score to win. Remy and Ricky Ramsdale both finished with three wickets to be the pick of the bowlers. Boneo is very much right in its match against Carrum after a good afternoon with the ball. Boneo lost the toss and was first to take the new ball, which proved to be just fine for them. The visitors picked up the first two wickets with the score on three and then made light work of the tail to end Carrum’s innings at 9/181 off its 80 overs. Josh Dent top scored for Carrum with 65, Dylan Steed hit 39 and Shaun Foster 36 to give him 212 runs for the season. Leigh Janssen was outstanding with the ball for Boneo, picking up five wickets, while Chris Jobling and Cameron Williams took one each. With less than 200 runs to get at Roy Dore Reserve, Boneo is a real show. Main Ridge has placed itself in a strong position against Baden Powell after dismissing the home side for just 159. Scott Millar bowled a whopping 40 overs for the Ridge to return the impressive figures of 3/76, including 14 maidens. James Abbott bowled 20 overs and finished with 3/17. Keeper-batsman Sam Mullavey top scored for the Braves with 53, while Rhys Elmi hit 27. Corey Hand fell four runs short of a century (96) as his Seaford Tigers managed 246 against Flinders. Hand, along with David James (41) and Warren Junkeer (30), helped the home side to a more than competitive total. Shane Beggs (4/53) was the best of the Flinders bowlers while Nathan Hunt also picked up a couple of wickets.

Dromana gets among the runs SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully DROMANA had an unfamiliar day out with the bat on Saturday to place itself in a commanding position against Tyabb in Sub District cricket. The Hoppers smacked 7/274 against the Yabbies at Tyabb Reserve, Jedd Savage outstanding with 113. Savage faced 166 balls and hit 13 fours and two sixes to assist his side to its best score in some time. Mark Whitehead opened the innings and made a welcome return to form after his previous four innings netted just 25 runs. His 53 of 95 balls got his side away to the flier it needed and gave the skipper some real confidence. Zac Klan made 32 and then Mathew Schelfhout (27) and Jason McKenzie (26) made some valuable runs at the end of the innings for the visitors.

Frankston YCW has set Tootgarook 219 for victory after making 9/218 at Truemans Rd Reserve on Saturday. A number of YCW batsmen made starts on the weekend, Mathew Lane the best of them with 58, while Peter Wilkins (30) and Paul Bradley (30) were the next best with the bat. Frankston YCW declared its innings four overs short of its allotted 80 to have a late afternoon crack at the home side. Tootgarook will resume at 0/5. In other good news for the Stonecats, father and son Rob and Jason Bedford made their comeback in the Second XI. Jason is not out 11 and Rob is yet to bat. The match between Carrum Downs and Rosebud will go down to the wire after the Cougars made 193 on Saturday.

Coach resigns

Shane Walford opened the innings with 56 for the home side while Chamara Perera came it at nine and helped himelf to an unbeaten 38. Josh Spittal also made 32. Brian Doughty was the pick of the bowlers for the Buds with 4/59 from 18.5 overs, giving him 13 scalps for the season, while teenager Pat Nagel made an impression in his First XI debut, snaring 3/34 from 16 overs. Skye appears to be in a spot of bother against Pearcedale, although we have come to expect all kinds of surprises in Sub-District this season. Skye was bowled out for just 144, Shayne Gillings doing the job for the Panthers with 4/64 and Chris Dew claiming 2/5. The home side is 0/7 in reply. Balnarring and Red Hill will play a one-day game this weekend after rain affected play.

MT ELIZA is looking for a new coach after Jason Watts resigned last week. Watts turned his back on the club after a new committee took over the management of the club at a recent annual general meeting. A new ticket, headed by former Mt Eliza FC president Dave Morrison, took over the management of the club, unopposed at the AGM. Watts, who took the club to a grand final and the finals in the past two seasons, said he was left with little choice but to resign. “I was employed by the outgoing committee and we were headed in a certain direction together. I am a loyal bloke and didn’t feel I could continue my role with the new committee,” Watts said. Morrison said he was left with little choice but to take control of the management of the club. “It’s important to point out that we all have the best interests of the footy club at heart,” Morrison said. “If we (the new committee) believed the club was heading in the right direction, we would not have got involved. A number of people had some concerns with the direction and as a result, I agreed, with their support, to stand for election at the AGM. As it turned out, we were voted in unopposed.” Morrison said the club was currently interviewing for Watts’ replacement and hoped to announce a decision by November 15.
