It’s easy being green THOUSANDS of primary school pupils and secondary college students from across the peninsula descended on The Briars Park at Mt Martha last week to learn more about the environment and sustainability as part of Schools Environment Week. A joint effort between the community, schools and Mornington Peninsula Shire, Environment Week has been a favourite activity for pupils for 30 years. Briars ranger Jarrod Ruch said activities offered hands-on learning opportunities on a wide range of topics such as indigenous culture, soil health, growing organic food, flora and fauna, and green energy. “Students took part in activities according to their particular interests, and chose from horticulture, water conservation, marine studies, ecology, farm animals, native fauna and flora, as well as community interest programs such as CFA and friends groups,� he said. “There were also more intense programs available for students under the themes wetlands, woodlands, indigenous culture and traditions, hands in the dirt, and green living.� Knee-deep: At The Briars Park were Dromana Primary School pupils Blaire, left, and Campbell who met a giant tree frog with Mornington MP David Morris. The frog has lived at The Briars for more than 21 years after it was discovered in a box of bananas sent to Melbourne from Queensland. Picture: Yanni

Govt slams shire on CCTV By Mike Hast THE state government has criticised Mornington Peninsula Shire for delays in installing CCTV in Mt Eliza and Mt Martha. A letter from Minister for Crime Prevention Edward O’Donohue to shire CEO Michael Kennedy, seen by The News, is highly critical of a delay of nearly two and a half years. Mr O’Donohue told Dr Kennedy the

shire had failed to deliver its commitments for the Mt Eliza and Mt Martha CCTV projects. “I am very disappointed that after all of this time, and with multiple variations to your funding arrangements, council has still not been able to identify and resolve the necessary design issues to enable you to deliver these important projects,� Mr O’Donohue wrote.

councillor David Garnock. The shire has also been dragging its heels on CCTV in Hastings with Cr Garnock blaming United Energy, which has agreed to allow cameras to be installed on several of its light poles. United Energy denied the claim, saying it and the shire had agreed on two possible options at a recent meeting. The shire was given grants from the Department of Justice in October

2011 for the three CCTV projects. In the lead-up to the 2010 state election, the Liberal-Nationals Coalition promised – and later delivered – $60,000 each for Mt Eliza and Mt Martha, and $250,000 for Hastings. Mt Eliza traders led by the chamber of commerce have been trying to get CCTV to reduce break-ins, vandalism and violence since at least 2009. Continued Page 6

Mornington News 1 April 2014

Police put pressure ice dealers By Mike Hast POLICE in Frankston and Mornington Peninsula regions have stepped up their fight against methamphetamine dealers. Members of the peninsula’s tasking unit joined forces with detectives and raided four properties on Monday last week, arresting five men who were charged with a number of drug offences including possession and trafficking. Three were bailed to appear in Frankston Magistrates’ Court in June, one was ordered onto a drug diversion program, and one was issued with a cannabis caution notice. Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb said police seized “a quantity of methamphetamine”, also called ice or crystal meth, as well as cannabis, or marijuana, and a .22 pen pistol and ammunition when they raided two properties in Mornington and one each in Moorooduc and Rosebud West. There was no connection between the four properties raided, and the men charged had no links to outlaw bikie gangs, he said. Senior Sergeant Lamb said the “day of action” was the latest attempt to close down ice dealers in the region and particularly on the peninsula as authorities battle a rising tide of ice use. “Methamphetamine use has become a big problem in the region,” he said. “We are actively targeting ice dealers, have a number of investigations underway and are conducting regular raids.”

Ice raid: Police in the region continue to raid properties in the fight against methamphetamine production and dealing. During the search of a Langwarrin property last year, police discovered a clandestine drug laboratory. The lab had been set up in the kitchen but other items including dangerous chemicals were spread throughout the house. Picture: Gary Sissons

“It’s not just being used by so-called street people; it’s having a horrendous impact on family violence and on mental health.” Senior Sergeant Lamb said there were “ice laboratories” across the region, many in seemingly normal homes. “It’s not like what you see in [the television series] Breaking Bad; the show gives the wrong impression of what a lab can look like.” He said there was large-scale manu-

Senior Sergeant Lamb said ice users were “driving volume crimes” such as burglary, theft and theft from cars. “This drug is extremely addictive – it changes users’ personalities, makes normal people very aggressive, and affects the body terribly.” He said methamphetamine was causing the worst problems he’d seen in 27 years of policing. Ice was being used “across all demographics and by different socioeconomic groups”.

facturing occurring and cited a raid last May when police made the largest-ever seizure of chemicals used to make ice in Victoria. The trail started in a garden shed in Frankston where police found 10 drums of potassium borohydride, each weighing 10 kilograms, as well as a 10kg drum of sodium metal. Police later searched a shipping container in Dandenong South where they found a dozen 200kg drums of benzaldehyde and a dozen 60kg bags of phos-

phorous. Combined, the 10 tonnes of chemicals could have made $500 million worth of ice. The number of serious drug offences such as trafficking and manufacturing surged on the peninsula during financial year 2012-13, the most recent figures from Victoria Police show. Drug offences jumped 43 per cent with police blaming the growing use of methamphetamine. There was a 42.9 per cent spike in the number of charges laid for commercial drug activities such as cultivation, manufacture and trafficking. When the figures were released last August, Chief Commissioner Ken Lay said an increase of almost 12 per cent (per 100,000 people) in drug offences across Victoria was being driven by increased amphetamine use, and said he would be “very surprised” if this was not contributing to the rising tide of family violence. “Drug offences have been enormously problematic for us in the past 12 months,” Mr Lay said. “We know there is a significant increase in the use of ice in the community.” Senior Sergeant Lamb said police partly relied on information from the public to find and arrest ice dealers and raid labs. “People can make reports anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000,” he said. “If you have concerns about the comings and goings of people late at night at a property or detect unusual chemical smells, contact police.”

Courageous: Former Olympian Debbie Flintoff-King, right, and her husband Phil King sponsor the annual Lions clubs’ Children of Courage Awards. She is with this year’s winners.

Finals berth for young speaker MORNINGTON Secondary College student Aisha Malas and James Savage of Frankston High School were finalists in the Mornington Peninsula zone Lions Youth of the Year Quest. After being interviewed and making presentations before a panel, Savage, year 12 school captain at Frankston high, was chosen to represent the peninsula at the district finals. As a child he was a patient at the Royal Children’s Hospital and, after being fitted with a pacemaker, was unable to play contact sport. However, with encouragement from his father he took up golf and now aged 17 plays pennant at Long Island Country Club in Frankston as well as working in the club’s pro shop.

James Savage

The students made their presentations during an evening arranged by Lions Club of Mt Eliza. Savage chose golf as his topic and

Malas multiculturalism. They also spoke about school-related issues. Savage went to Trafalgar where he won the public speaking award at district finals, eventually won by a student of Longwarry who will contest the state finals in Colac. On Sunday 16 March, peninsula Lions clubs presented their 15th Children of Courage Awards. Pupils were selected by their primary schools and were acknowledged for enduring personal health issues, health issues of their family or for an event of bravery over the past 12 months. Former Olympian Debbie FlintoffKing presents each student with a Children of Courage bear, certificate and medal, and a backpack.

Landcare groups forge united front By Chris Brennan MORNINGTON Peninsula Landcare groups are joining forces to better harness their resources and coordinate larger programs. The peninsula’s 11 Landcare groups will this week launch the Mornington Peninsula Landcare Network, which aims to assist the development of “landscape-scale projects”. The announcement of the network comes as the federal government prepares to launch a number of Green Army projects on the peninsula, which will be administered by Mornington Peninsula Shire, Landcare groups and other environmental community groups. While not mentioning the upcoming launch of Green Army projects, scheduled to begin on the peninsula in July, Lancare network steering committee acting president David Maddocks said there were clear, tangible advantages to the region’s various groups working together. “The formation of a network will assist Landcare groups to access larger and longer-term funding opportunities for projects that reflect regional priorities,” Mr Maddocks said. “We see an opportunity to develop bids for landscape-scale projects, such as biolinks and a community feral animal control program.” Mornington Peninsula Shire Landcare facilitator Jacqui Salter said the network would act as an “umbrella group” that would provide a “united voice”. “A network will allow groups to collaborate on cross-boundary issues such as the control of weeds and pests. It really is a great step forward for Landcare on the peninsula.” Steering committee secretary Bernie Schedvin said the launch of the network on 5 April would enable groups to collaborate on cross-boundary issues although each group would remain autonomous. “Landcare representatives unanimously agreed that member groups should retain their regional identities and be self-governing,” she said. “Representatives from all of the groups will form a steering committee that will direct the net-

work’s priorities and direction.” Representatives of peninsula Landcare groups agreed to form the network in late 2013 after the federal government came to power and promised to implement Green Army environmental schemes across Australia. Programs on the peninsula and in Frankston will be among the first to begin, says Environment Minister and Flinders MP Greg Hunt. In early March, Mr Hunt said the government would soon begin a tender process for service providers to “engage the Green Army teams and supervisors, manage activities to ensure projects are completed safely, and report regularly on progress”. “The Mornington Peninsula Green Army Project and Western Port Green Army Project will be carried out in consultation and conjunction with Mornington Peninsula and Western Port Biosphere Reserve Foundation, Cardinia Shire, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Balcombe Estuary Rehabilitation Group, Red Hill Community Ac-

tion Group and local Landcare groups,” he said. The peninsula project will have four main strands: Mt Martha-Balcombe Creek nature trail habitat enhancement, southern peninsula foreshore and creek rejuvenation, Red Hill South biolink and community reserve creation, and Mornington Peninsula war on weeds. The Western Port project will include: Watsons Creek rehabilitation in Baxter and Somerville; Hastings, Crib Point and Somers foreshore revegetation and walking track construction; bandicoot habitat preservation at Bayles; and weed removal and revegetation in Koo Wee Rup and Lang Lang.

Advertise CEO’s job, says former MP By Mike Hast MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire CEO Michael Kennedy’s three-year contract expires next February and pressure is already mounting on councillors to advertise the position for the first time in a decade. Councillors are obliged to tell the CEO if they intend to advertise his job six months before the contract expires next February. Dr Kennedy will be 61 in June. He was given the top job in 1999 and has been reappointed four times, the most recent in August 2011 for three years with his contract running from February 2012 to February 2015. He was given a five-year term in 1999 after coming to the shire from inner-city Boroondara. In 2004 he was reappointed for another five years without the job being advertised. In 2009 he was given a three-year contract, 2010 to 2012, again without the job being advertised, and again in 2011 for 2012 to 2015 with no advertising. The past two contracts being awarded without the job being advertised have generated strong criticism of councillors from community groups and individuals. Mt Eliza resident Robin Cooper, the former state MP for Mornington and Transport Minister in the Kennett government, has been among the most outspoken critics.

Coach, doctor and an OAM to boot MICHAEL Kennedy came to the Mornington Peninsula in 1993 and served one year as CEO of the Shire of Hastings prior to the Kennett government’s 2004 forced amalgamation of 210 Victorian municipalities. After amalgamation he was CEO of City of Boroondara from 1995 to 1999 before returning to the peninsula in 1999 to become boss of the new “super” shire formed from Hastings, Flinders and Mornington. Prior to local government he was in the shipping industry, as a director and general manager of Coastal ExpressLine and as a senior manager at ANL. A Bachelor of Business, he started a doctorate in business administration while at Boroondara, but set study aside after becoming shire CEO. He completed the course in March 2002. Since entering local government, Dr Kennedy has pursued a wide range of allied interests. He has been on the committee of MAV Insurance (Municipal Association of Victoria), is a Victoria fellow of the Institute of Public Administration Australia, a fellow of the Institute of Company Directors, and a fellow of Local Government Professionals. He was founding chairman of Lifesaving Victoria and an independent director. Dr Kennedy was awarded an OAM on Australia Day 2009 “for service to health organisations, lifesaving and the Mornington Peninsula Shire as CEO”. At the time, he said the award was the result of a team effort.

Mr Cooper was a councillor on the Shire of Mornington 1972-85 before serving in the Victorian Parliament 1985-2006. He keeps a close eye on local and state politics, and has been a critic since 2008 of the CEO’s job not being advertised. In a letter to The News, Mr Cooper said the council made the “extraordinary decision” in 2011 to reappoint Dr Kennedy “without bothering to publicly advertise the position and test the

market to see whether there is a better qualified person interested”. Mr Cooper described the past two contract processes as “disgraceful”. “The councillors who reappointed Dr Kennedy in 2009 and 2011 are his cheer squad; members of a club,” he said. “Not only have they done that [reappointed the CEO] but also they did so in secret at a closed special purposes meeting where councillors were warned that they were forbidden to divulge how

Heritage celebrations ready to fire up POINT Nepean’s famous guns, renowned for having fired the British Empire’s first shot of the First World War, are just one of the peninsula’s many historic attractions set to be celebrated during Australian Heritage Week. Flinders MP Greg Hunt, pictured admiring the Fort Nepean installation with First Shot committee chairman Major Bernie Gaynor, said Australian Heritage Week from 12-20 April provided an opportunity to celebrate the places, buildings, landscapes and stories that had forged the peninsula’s unique history. “It’s a great time to explore some of our local places of historical significance. You can take a diving tour and explore South Channel Fort at Sorrento, explore the Endeavour Fern Gully Nature Trail at Red Hill or take a cruise on the Enterprize at Rye. Other places of interest included Point Nepean, McCrae Homestead, Churchill Island, The Briars Park, Coolart Homestead and Wetland, and the Collins Settlement Historic Site. “Take a tour, drop in for a coffee or simply take a walk around these places and enjoy our rich local history.” Community groups are also being encourage to get involved in Australian Heritage Week by planning and hosting their own events.

Govt slams shire on CCTV Continued from Page 1 The village is meant to have at least four cameras strategically placed to provide coverage of the main shopping area in Mt Eliza Way as well as Butler Reserve and the community centre off Canadian Bay Rd. Police support the CCTV projects. Cameras will be linked to police stations for recording but will not be monitored 24/7. Footage can be extracted and reviewed after incidents and also can be used in court. The shire was not available for comment but it recently released a draft CCTV policy for public input. “The purpose of the CCTV policy is to provide direction and guidance for the use of CCTV systems in public places for crime solving and crime prevention and the enhancement of public perception of safety,” the shire stated. Point five may be instructive in explaining the delay: “[The policy will] guide the manner in which the shire seeks funding opportunities for CCTV systems to ensure that all costs are considered.” Residents can comment on the policy until 22 April. CCTV cameras were installed in Mornington several years ago but the brunt of ongoing costs has been borne by the chamber of commerce.

the vote to reappoint was conducted and which way each councillor voted.” Mr Cooper claimed councillors were gagged about discussing the matter by the threat of legal action. “It is to be hoped that this time there will not be a repeat of this disgraceful performance. “Whether you are pro- or anti-Dr Kennedy, the council should find who’s available. “Michael Kennedy believes he has the CEO’s job for as long as he wants it, but testing the market is in the best interests of ratepayers.” At the most recent council meeting – held in Somerville on Monday last week – Tyabb resident David Lines asked the council if Dr Kennedy’s job would be advertised this time “to test the market for the best candidate to fill this position”. The mayor, Cr Antonella Celi, said the council was “yet to determine a position in regards to the chief executive officer, and notice of that will come in due course”. Dr Kennedy was not at the meeting, having flown to Europe two days earlier for a two-week holiday, which councillors were not told about until after he had left.

Playgroups provide more than just fun YOUNG families across the Mornington Peninsula last week celebrated National Playgroup Week as the state government unveiled new funding to enhance early learning opportunities. As part of Playgroup Week celebrations, more than 40 families attended a special “Fun on the Foreshore” event at Rye on Thursday organised by Playgroup Victoria. Activities and attractions included a storytime tent provided by Mornington Peninsula’s libraries, a jumping castle from Rosebud Toy Library and free dental health checks for children by Peninsula Health Community Health. The mayor, Cr Antonella Celi, said there were about 50 playgroups on the peninsula operated by parent volunteers, council-employed facilitators and local organisations. “Playgroups are a great way to enable children to participate in new experiences, to develop and increase their social skills and to enjoy learning about their world,” Cr Celi said. “Parents also benefit from playgroup as it gives them time to talk, make friends and share experiences.” Earlier in the week, Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development Wendy Lovell announced $8.4 million in funding to provide additional support to young families and children. The state government program aims to get every Victorian toddler talking,

provide support to stop vulnerable families falling through the gaps, and provide incentives to attract staff to regional children’s centres, such as the peninsula, Ms Lovell said. Funding included $4 million in workforce programs, scholarships to upgrade the skills of childcare workers, and financial incentives to attract and retain staff. A further $2 million has been allocated to trial an expansion of the MCH Child Health Record to focus on learning, development and care to help families better understand the needs of their children. Other funding measures included $1.2 million for the Every Toddler Talking trial, which brings teachers and speech pathologists together to help toddlers speak, listen and be understood early on to ensure they have the literacy skills they need to stay on track at school and beyond, and $1.2 million to work with local governments to improve centralised enrolments for MCH and kindergarten programs to improve access to key services for vulnerable families. “The plan highlights Victoria’s shared vision for a system that better connects families with services and provides the right support early on for vulnerable families, and that focuses on learning as much as health and care for every child from day one,” Ms Lovell said. The shire has already introduced a centralised registration system for three- and four-year-old kindergarten

placements from this year, with registrations for 2015 open until Friday 25 April. The new system aims to ensure “a streamlined and transparent application and allocation process that is fair and equitable for all families to support their access to community kindergarten programs across the shire”, according to shire documents. Families who have registered their children under the previous system will have their registration automatically transferred to the new process and will not need to reregister. Under the new system, priority is

given to shire residents or ratepayers. Others may be allocated places if they are available. Allocation of kindergarten places begins in June for four-year-old kindergarten and in October for threeyear-olds, with families notified by by mail.

PENINSULA winemaker Circe was last week awarded a gold medal at a prestigious international wine competition in London. Circe’s 2012 Hillcrest Road pinot noir was awarded top honours at the inaugural Drinks Business Pinot Noir Masters competition. Established in 2010 by Dan Buckle, previously chief winemaker at Domain Chandon, and Aaron Drummond, formerly of Yering Station and Mount Langi Ghiran, Circe has three small vineyards in Red Hill. Mr Buckle said the 2012 Circe Hillcrest Road pinot noir had been singled out by a “tough tasting panel comprised of eight Masters of Wine” and was the only gold medal awarded to an Australian winemaker at the competition. “This tremendous result means a lot for us and hopefully is a further boost for the Mornington Peninsula to be getting such great recognition globally,” Mr Buckle said. “The win follows a gold for our 2012 Circe pinot noir at the 2013 Royal Melbourne Wine Show. Hopefully this will further build the excitement around high quality Mornington Peninsula and Australian pinot noir.” He said the peninsula was proving to be an ideal region for growing highquality pinot noir. Circe’s Hillcrest Road vineyard, a small and dry-grown chardonnay and pinot noir vineyard planted in 1993, was the winemaker’s first vineyard. Yields from the vineyard’s deep red, volcanic basalt soil are kept deliberately low at 1.5 tonnes an acre.

Hold your nerve: huntsman is the good guy AS the weather begins to cool off slightly, you’ll spend more time in the home and car but so is the much maligned huntsman spider. It’s also starting to spend more time indoors as it hunts for insects before this food source starts to hibernate. You’ll soon start to notice the huntsman in cracks and crevices or running across the dashboard of your car. Don’t panic! The huntsman is actually your friend, says Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife CEO Susanna Bradshaw. “They cannot seriously hurt you. Their bark is worse than their bite,” she said. “In Victoria, keep an eye out for the mountain huntsman, which is grey with black marks on its abdomen, the shield or badge huntsman, which is brown and very flat, the social huntsman, which is brown and often hangs out in large groups, and the giant huntsman.” Ms Bradshaw said many people are afraid of the huntsman “probably because they are so big – up to 15 centimetres in some species – and their habit of hiding in cars and corners of rooms”. “While they look intimidating with their hairy legs and large pincers, they’re not dangerous to humans and are very timid. Even so, most people will have their horror stories of an unfortunate huntsman encounter,” she said. “They hide behind the sun visor in the car because they love hiding behind tree bark in their natural environment. You’ll see them on the

ceiling and walls because they are looking for insects. “Huntsmans are easily disturbed and can move very fast, which is not a good combination for people scared of spiders. “They are very handy to have in the garden because they keep insect numbers down. They are lone hunters and stalk all sorts of creepy crawlies that you won’t want in your property such as cockroaches, other

spiders and even mosquitoes. “If you find one in your house or car, remain calm. If you are driving when you spot one, try not to panic. Many people have had accidents when a huntsman appears mid-journey. Pull over when it is safe and figure out a safe way to evict your eight-legged passenger. Tips for dealing with a huntsman  As they can move very quickly, instead of using a broom or an object

they can run along to move them, try to slowly and gently place a clear plastic container over them and push a piece of thin cardboard or the lid underneath. You can now carry them safely outside to release them.  Huntsman spiders have very flat bodies that allow them to squeeze under doors or through cracks. Fill cracks and attach a door sweep if you have gaps under doors.  Watch out for spiders trying to enter

your home or car particularly after rain. The moisture drives them to find dry areas like a house. Keep windows closed if it looks like rain.  If you don’t want huntsman spiders around, let natural predators take care of them. Spider wasps sting huntsmans and funnel web spiders, and drag the paralysed spiders back to their nests. They lay an egg on the spider and when it hatches, the huntsman becomes lunch. Spider wasps live singly, not in a nest, and are not aggressive toward humans. “The social huntsman prefers to live in large social groups of up to 300 spiders. Some will bring insects they have captured for the rest of the colony to eat,” Ms Bradshaw said. “The larger social huntsman will defend the colony against predators, usually other spiders or ants. There are only 60 species of social spiders out of 42,000 spiders in the world. Facts about huntsman spiders  The largest and most colourful type was discovered recently – in 2006 the tiger huntsman was found in far north Queensland. They can be seen at the Bugs Alive! exhibition in Melbourne Museum.  The social huntsman is also called the Avondale spider because it has been introduced to Avondale in New Zealand. This is the spider cast to bite Peter Parker in the 2002 Spiderman movie.  In order to grow, they need to shed their skin so the big, scary spider you see might just be its shell.

AN emergency call has gone out to find a bottlenose dolphin with packing tape wrapped around its torso. The dolphin was spotted off Portsea by dolphin swim tour operators on Friday 21 March and rescuers want to track it down before the dolphin becomes too distressed or dies. The Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) issued an alert for boaters to be on the lookout for the dolphin. DEPI’s regional director of Port Phillip, Travis Dowling, said the Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad used its boat for a zig-zag search of the area. “Representatives of the AGL Marines Response Unit, Fisheries Victoria and volunteers of the Dolphin Re-

search Institute all provided assistance and equipment,” he said. “The search continued over the weekend but we were unable to locate the distressed dolphin. We are now very keen to hear of any further sightings before its condition deteriorates.” Mark Keenan of Zoos Victoria said photographs showed the dolphin appeared to be in good body condition. “However, this sort of entanglement can be fatal so we are very keen to find the dolphin and we’re calling on the community to help.” Anyone spotting the dolphin is advised to take a note of the location and call the DEPI Whale and Dolphin Emergency hotline on 1300 136 017.

Celebration had waves of appeal MORE than 450 surfers and their friends and families turned up for a party last weekend to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Peninsula Surfriders Club. The gathering included all members of the original committee, which met to discuss forming a club at the rear of the first Peninsula Surf Centre store in Frankston. More than a generation later, members of the current committee were able to hold the event at the club’s rooms, near Gunnamatta. For more information about the surfriders club, go to www.psc.org.au or call club secretary Jane Featherston on 0449 186 559. See “Highway shop was first stop on search for surf” on Page 14.

Police seize control of trail bike scourge By Chris Brennan POLICE now have the power to impound illegally ridden trail bikes and other “recreational vehicles” on the peninsula after an amendment to local laws was approved by the shire council. The amendment to Mornington Peninsula Shire’s laws enables police and to seize vehicles used in contravention of regulations. Councillors voted 5-3 to approve the amendment last week, with Crs Tim Rogers, Graham Pittock and Andrew Dixon opposing the motion. A shire spokesperson said the changes had been made following “ongoing complaints” by Victoria Police over the illegal use of recreational vehicles in the shire – in most cases, trail bikes. Under the new regulations, owners of impounded vehicles will have to pay $500 to have

Highway shop was first stop on search for surf THE first Peninsula Surf Centre store opened in 1974 at 468 Nepean Highway, Frankston. “We figured it was a good position because, back then, everyone came down the highway to get to all the Mornington Peninsula surf beaches,” director Ted Bainbridge said. “Cartoonist Paul Harris brushed a mural of his Hot Curl character on the window. We painted the outside green, stocked the shop with surfboards, wax, a few Quiksilver boardies and a dozen Rip Curl wetsuits. “For an outlay of $1500 each we were in business and opened our doors under the banner Peninsula Surf Centre – which seemed to have it covered.” Surfboards stocked by the fledgling shop included those bearing the brands Farrelly, G&S, Morning Star, Trigger, Hot Roc, Shane, Brothers Neilsen, Cooper, Crozier, and Klemm Bell. “We used the backroom to produce Breakway – Victoria’s first surf magazine – with Keith Platt and Tony Murrell,” Bainbridge recalled. “Harry Hodge, who became a Quiksilver executive, worked on producing the Peninsula Surf Centre film Liquid Gold and I’d sometimes do the radio 3XY surf reports from there. “It was not on the radar to open more stores back then.” Bainbridge, who was also instrumental in starting Peninsula Surfriders Club in the same year as opening the surf shop, said it had been “incredible to see the growth of the sport and, of course the industry”. “In our own small way we assisted the popularity of surfing and we’re all proud of that.”

s ve ear e! a c h e 0 Y ien W r 3 er e xp ov f e o

In those early days, Rip Curl made wetsuits and Quiksilver made Ugg boots in winter and boardshorts in summer. “Apart from the resin and fibreglass we sold along with Honey surf wax and the Balin safety strap, that was it for brands and labels,” Bainbridge said. “I met Gordon and Rena Merchant on a Queensland trip with Mick Pierce and Ian Portingale. They were making clothes, under Ken Brown’s place in Burleigh, which morphed into the Billabong label. “They came down here selling their shorts in about 1976, and we had to tell them we were covered – we had Quiksilver and didn’t think we needed a second brand.” As well as marking Peninsula Surf Centre’s 40th anniversary, this month will also see it move into the lower level of Bayside shopping centre (next to the Myer basement) in Frankston. “Despite the industry having changed in several ways over the years, our new Frankston store will still stock the most popular, core surf brands, but will also encompass a range of more fashion-oriented clothing and street brands,” Bainbridge said. “Our new store will also see a modern shop fitout linked with elements and memorabilia from our long heritage in the industry.” In style: Haircuts and board shapes have changed, but the lure of the surf remains.

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

Architect-designed inspiration THIS spectacular home is surrounded by all the hallmarks that make Balnarring Beach a popular little pocket on the Mornington Peninsula. At a glance the home reveals little, with a neat, rendered facade greeting you at street level. However the home majestically sprawls over four levels, perfectly utilising the slope and aspect of the 816-square metre block to hide its secrets. Panoramic views over Western Port Bay and across to Phillip Island are framed by large picture windows that serve as stunning portals to the wonders of constantly changing water and bush vistas. On the top floor is a spacious kitchen with Caesar stone benchtops, stainless-steel appliances and ample bench space, including a breakfast bar. Incorporated into the room is a meals and casual living area with access to one of four viewing platforms. Five bedrooms are spread across levels two and three, both with kitchenettes and powder rooms, which affords the possibility of having a premier holiday rental destination or a bed and breakfast. At ground level, along with a triple garage, is a superb wine cellar. If you have forgotten which label to serve at fine evening banquets overlooking the turquoise waters of the bay, there is an elevator to quickly and comfortably take you back up to the top floor. The combination of steel, timber, concrete and glass used throughout the home balance form and function. This is a stunning home with a raw and powerful elemental force. In a luxury market where the word unique is often overused, here it is totally justified.

Although we all hope we will never need to, many of us have benefited from the fantastic work of the Royal Children’s Hospital.

Being a fully endorsed event from the Royal Children’s Hospital, the Easter Extravaganza will not only a great fun family day out, but also your children’s way to contribute to the Good Friday Appeal in support of the Royal Children’s Hospital. Since taking over the business early last year, Planet Kids’ new owners have created a Play Centre and Cafe that is a clean, bright and an inviting environment for parents and carers to sit and relax while the children play. The new tables and chairs, new couches, new serving area, new toddler equipment and the healthier, fresher food and drinks offer makes Planet Kids the ideal place to catch up with friends while watching the children play. The extravaganza will officially mark the opening of seven new slides currently under construction and include face painting, an Easter egg hunt, an Easter hat parade, a colouring completion, slide races and more. Mornington police have also kindly agreed to be onsite in the morning to let the children get up close and personal with a real police car! Each child will receive an Easter candy carrot lolly bag on departure. So if you are looking for something to do with the children on Good Friday and if you would like to support the Royal Children’s Hospital at the same time, head down to Planet Kids Café and Play Centre, 7 Latham Street, Mornington at 10am-3pm on Friday 18 April for the Planet Kids Easter Extravaganza.

NEWS DESK – 1 April

Mt Eliza to be renamed after lawsuit By Stuart & Cameron McCullough RUMOURS are swirling that Mornington Peninsula Shire has been engaged in a legal battle of mountainous proportions after a lawsuit was lodged over breach of trademark regarding the use of the name “Mount Eliza”. The legal documents were lodged by the highly litigious International Mountain Trademark Protection Council (IMTPC). The documents demanded the immediate renaming of Mount Eliza and the payment of years of compensation for breach of trademark. The IMTPC, based in Geneva, Switzerland, consists of representatives of some of the largest mountains in the world including Mount Everest in Nepal, Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, Mount Fuji in Japan and Magic Mountain in California. “It comes down to this – mountains mean millions,” IMTPC spokesman Hillary Edmund said. What Ms Edmunds refers to is the marketing value of the word “mountain”, a value the IMTPC has vowed to protect around the world. “These days, people think they can name any little hill a mountain; well, we’ll make sure that isn’t so.” The IMTPC has a strict list of guidelines that must be adhered to with the use of the word mountain or any of its derivatives. The council then searches the world enforcing its trademark. The lawsuit that arrived in the shire’s customer service email inbox took everybody by surprise, but is not without precedent. The most recent local example was

Blowing their own trumpet: Committee members from the Internationanal Mountain Trademark Protection Council at their AGM last year.

in 1971 when the then Shire of Flinders was targeted by the same organisation over Mount Arthur. Facing a costly court battle, they chose to rename it Arthurs Seat. The current court case was faced head-on in the beginning, with the shire acting to adhere to IMTPC regulations. A shire spokesman, speaking to The News on condition of anonymity, said height was not the only indicator of mountain status. “The mountain protection council said if we had a snow-capped peak, yodellers, a chairlift or a lookout tower, we’d be ok.” The shire then promptly set about dismantling the lookout tower on top of Arthurs Seat, “Captain Cook Cottage style”, numbering each piece for reassembly on top of Mount Eliza.

“Everything was going to plan when were notified by the IMTPC that it had moved the goalposts,” the spokesman said. “Another email to customer service said we now needed at least two of the requirements.” It is believed councillors discussed appointing a full-time yodeller for the town, but discounted the idea due to the lack of locally based yodellers and the expense of importing one from Europe. “It all got too much. While we were supposed to be nutting out how to build the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre, we were using council meetings to audition yodellers.” In the end, the best solution was a name change. Mount Eliza will be renamed Frankston South West. In line with the change, it has been

rumoured the town will be handed back to Frankston City. “Mount Eliza has long been the Alsace-Lorraine of the peninsula, and it seemed like an opportune time to settle the ill-will between Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire over the disputed territory.” The township previously known as Mount Eliza was part of the City of Frankston until the 1994 council amalgamations under the Kennett government. “Losing Mount Eliza was a blow to Frankston,” Frankston Council spokeswoman Phyllida T Planner said. “To say we’re happy to have it back is an understatement.” Frankston Council has been working overtime to make the transition smooth. Street signs and Google maps will be updated to reflect the name change, and it is rumoured the council has ordered 40,000 “I Love Frankston South West” stickers. Residents of the town formerly known as Mount Eliza have only just heard the news, but have appealed directly to the United Nations. Retired property developer, investor and philanthropist Sir Herman von Barth-Thistlethwaite travelled to New York to make the case in person but without success. “It was like their ears were painted on,” he said. “They’re taking a heavyhanded approach.” He described it as “regulation gone mad”. The finger of blame, which Sir Herman believes should be the one in the middle, is firmly pointed in the direction of France.

“Ever since the French started suing anyone who dared called their sparkling white wine ‘champagne’, the world’s gone to hell in the handbasket.” Although many aspects of life in Frankston South West will be unchanged, Sir Herman said he had a large amount of letterhead with his current address on it. “It’s such a tragic waste of stationery seeing as how I’ve just recently been knighted.” Sir Herman said the name change would add three minutes to travel time to Melbourne. “Don’t ask me how,” he said. “It used to be 48 minutes, but when I put the new address into Google Maps, it said 51.” Hillary Edmund said no one had the right to be surprised. “The idea of a standard definition for mountains has been kicking around for at least 50 years.” She cited Olivers Hill and Red Hill as two areas that got in early and made the change decades ago. “No one even remembers Mount Oliver or Red Mountain. In time, people will get used to Frankston South West.” Mornington Peninsula Shire are busy looking at the legal ramifications for Mount Martha. The search has begun for a yodellers residence and plans are being made to install a snow making machine. On the upside, they’ll legally be able to resinstate the term “Mount Arthur” for Arthurs Seat once the chairlift is complete and if they reassemble the lookout tower. “It may be an opportunity too good to pass up,” the shire spokesman said.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Woman found dead after head pains; robberies continue in Frankston Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 4 April 1914 A PAINFULLY sudden death occurred at Frankston on Wednesday evening, when Mrs Maudsley, a married women residing with her husband, Mr Henry Maudsley, was found dead. Early in the evening the unfortunate woman complained of violent pains in her head, and she was taken to her room. The husband did everything that was possible, but on his return to the room after a temporary absence, he found his wife dead. The body was removed to Frankston, where Dr Maxwell held an examination, the result of which showed that death was due to natural causes. *** FURTHER robberies have been reported to the Frankston police during the last few days. During the early part of the week, thieves annexed a full set of harness and part of another set from Dr. Maxwell’s stable, and about the same time a set of harness belonging to Mr A. D. Box was purloined from his stable. The list of robberies is now a lengthy one, and householders would do well to see that their houses and outbuildings are well looked after. *** ADVERTISERS are notified that owing to our usual publishing day falling out on Good Friday next week, we will publish a day earlier, (Thursday evening) and advertisements must reach this office not later than noon on that day to insure insertion. *** THE V.R.C. have granted to the Mornington Racing Club, Tuesday

12th May, 1914, for their second meeting to be run on the “Drywood” estate racecourse. *** A PRACTICE match between members of the Frankston football club will take place at the park this afternoon. *** THE Frankston choral and orchestral society will resume practice on Monday evening next, in the Mechanics’ Institute. *** THE Flinders show eventuated under most favourable weather conditions on Thursday of last week. There was a splendid attendance of the public, and the exhibits, especially in the livestock sections, were of a very high standard. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold their usual monthly market at Somerville on Wednesday next, when they will offer cattle, horses, pigs, poultry, 80 ewes, 1 light lorry, spring tooth harrows, Rustic cart and harness, etc. *** THE members of the Choral Society will be delighted to resume duties after the summer vacation, and a number of new musical members have signified their intention of joining. *** GRUNDBERG’S band will supply the music at the ball to be held in the Mornington Mechanics’ Institute on Easter Monday night, 13th inst. This ball which takes place after the dramatic and vocal entertainment, is looked forward to as the most enjoyable function of the year. The proceeds are in aid of the Catholic

church debt, and Messrs J. Murphey and R. Stanley have been appointed joint hon. secs. ***

The members of the Choral Society will be delighted to resume duties after the summer vacation, and a number of new musical members have signified their intention of joining

THE programme of the Dromana sports club annual meeting on Eight Hours Day, April 27th, appears in another column. An attractive programme has been drawn up, and a successful day’s sport is anticipated. Mr J. C. Griffiths Junr. is the general hon. secretary. Tenders for the right of Publican’s booth and refreshment stall close with the secretary on 15th April. ***

READERS are requested to refer to our advertising columns, wherein it will be noted that the Frankston Motor Garage Pty. Ltd. is now open for business, and solicits local patronage. Two Ford cars well fitted and in a few weeks a Sunbeam car of the latest design will be at the command of patrons. The three drivers employed by the company, are mechanics as well as expert motorists. The fare table has been made so as to be within reach of all. A speciality will be we understand, pleasure runs for 3 parties of four. *** MR Percy Thornell met with a slight accident on Wednesday last through the horse he was riding falling with him. Somehow or other one of the rider’s legs got under the horse, and as a consequence, is somewhat bruised. *** MR Maurice Griffith, nephew of Dr Griffith, said farewell to his many friends at the Church of England on Sunday night last. He has received an appointment of Curate to a suburban church. *** MRS T. Thornell is now building a villa on Eramosa road, just opposite the Methodist church. *** THE post office has changed hands. Mr Geo Philbuck, who has been post master since the postal matters came under the control of the Federal Government has given up the billet. Miss Thompson who has been with Mr Philbuck as assistant, has succeeded to the position. ***

THE Frankston Methodist circuit held their quarterly meeting in the Somerville Methodist church on Wednesday last. There was a representative gathering. The usual routine work was accomplished, and the spiritual side of the church’s life was discussed. Financially, the quarter ended with a substantial credit balance. Tea was served by the ladies of the Somerville church. *** SEAFORD possesses a fine stretch of beach country, three miles long, bordered with thick ti-tree growth. There is a strong local feeling that this area should be made a national park, in order that the country there shall not be devastated by bush fires, Frankston shire council and the Seaford Progress Association with the Government to grant £500 to assist in tempting the public to the beach. A deputation from those bodies made such a request on Wednesday to Mr H. S. Lawson, Minister of Lands. The minister, after promising to give sympathetic consideration to the matter, although no money was at present available, made the question of the control of the whole of the foreshore was thus opened up. There was more or less fitful control at the present time, but he would like to see a committee or some organised body in charge, with representatives on it from the particular councils concerned, receiving a definite fixed contribution from the Government and some assured contributions from the respective areas affected. That question he would place before Cabinet at the earliest opportunity.

FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

Crimea river: Putin on the Ritz WE’VE all done it. For me, it was about eight years ago when I decided to gift a copy of the Coen Brothers’ film, The Hudsucker Proxy to my father. Like any gift, it was unconditional and the DVD has sat in his collection ever since. But time changes things. You see, The Hudsucker Proxy is no longer available for purchase in this country. It used to be, but not anymore. The Coen Brothers are hardly obscure filmmakers and it defies logic that one of their movies should be so hard to come by. So, despite the fact that I gave it away freely, I now want it back. If anyone knows how I feel, it’s Russia. In 1954, the general secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Nikita “Knuckles” Khrushchev, gifted the Crimea region to Ukraine. It was, apparently, a lastminute thing. Khrushchev had originally toyed with getting Ukraine a tonne of JB Hi-Fi vouchers but, at the last minute, decided to hand over the Crimean peninsula instead. Ever since, Crimea had been part of Ukraine. Until now. Ordinarily, when things become tense, I’d simply suggest that people stay calm and tell the key protagonist to keep his shirt on. This is not possible when the protagonist in question is Russian president and all-round amateur He-Man, Vladimir Putin. Without doubt, one of Putin’s greatest problems is his absolute inability to keep his shirt on. It’s as though he’s allergic to fabric from the beltline up. Vlad’s one of those guys who has yet to learn that the term “flexing

your muscle” is not to be taken literally. So how did it come to this? When considering the current shemozzle, you’ve got to start with Viktor “Weird Al” Yanukovych. He was the president of Ukraine until February when the Ukrainian parliament voted against him and he fled

was so impressed they suggested it should be entered into the Guinness Book of World Records. His personal wealth is estimated to be something around the $12 billion mark, which is an astounding achievement if, like Viktor, your salary has never exceeded two grand a month. With Yanukovych gone and elections scheduled for May, Vladimir Putin responded to the unfettered act of aggression of existing by sending in the troops. Then, in a move that streamlined democracy, a vote was conducted. The referendum posed two questions: the first was whether the voter wished Crimea to become part of Russia; the second was whether the voter wanted to restore Crimea’s 1992 constitution that proclaimed self-government. In effect, the only available answers were either “yes” or “perhaps”. Maintaining the status quo was not one of the options. It’s fair to say this debacle has caused chaos. Sanctions that include preventing the third season of Game of Thrones from being released in Russia have been considered. That Mr Putin considers it a documentary rather than a work of fiction is beside the point. The singer Sting, who once told us he hoped the “Russians love their children too”, has been parachuted into Moscow to either seek urgent diplomatic talks or, alternatively, challenge the president to a topless arm-wrestle. For his part, Putin, who in terms of sheer showmanship is probably the James Brown of Eastern European politics, gave an impassioned speech

the country. He’s also one of the few political leaders to have a Wikipedia page with the ignominious heading, “Alleged Higher Education”. When he fled, he left behind a mansion and estate claimed to be worth seventy million US dollars. The Finnish company that built it

that was interrupted by thunderous applause on thirty occasions. No doubt, he dropped to his knees before a cape was lowered across his shoulders that he then threw off before returning to the microphone. He claimed that the vote to Russia was done in accordance with all democratic procedures. I doubt it. For starters, I am yet to see any evidence of a sausage sizzle conducted at the polling sites. Despite the lack of snags, we can all learn something from Russia. That outdoor table setting you gave as a wedding present to the couple you no longer speak to? It’s yours for the taking. The box set of The Sopranos you gifted to the guy your sister used to date but broke up with two years ago? Morally, it belongs to you. And as for that copy of The Hudsucker Proxy I gave my father… When he arrived home, my father was surprised to find me in his kitchen. Hours earlier, I had seamlessly taken possession of the front half of the house. In his absence I had conducted a vote using all known democratic principles and, being the only person present at the time, the vote was overwhelmingly in my favour. But as I stood to leave, there was a knock on the door and, upon opening it, I was surprised to find Sting – his parachute draped across the front yard, asking to speak to me urgently. I took it as a sign. Some battles are worth fighting but if it requires a discussion with Sting, it’s probably better to cut your losses. I realise this sounds improbable. All I can do is swear that I’m not Putin you on. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Old world meets new

THOUSANDS of people from around the region and further afield headed up to Red Hill last Saturday week for the show, the famous Red Hill Agriculture and Horticultural Society’s 86th annual event. Red Hill is last show standing on the peninsula and drew competitors of all ages and with all kinds of animals and produce as well as modern attractions such as riders doing tricks on motorbikes, stiltwalkers and food sellers with exotic offerings that would have bamboozled your great-grandfather. Pioneers of the district would have recognised two regular crowd favourites – the woodchopping and working dog demonstrations in the main arena. Some things should never change. The show is not technically over just yet – the Clydesdales and Heavy Harness Show is on Saturday 5 April at Boneo Park Equestrian Centre with show jumping on Saturday 5 April and Sunday 6 April at the equestrian centre on Boneo Rd. For details, call 5989 2357 or visit www.redhillshow.com.au Pet showoffs: Anna Townsend of Shoreham and rat George (left) and Alexis of McCrae with her alpaca Tequila were among hundreds of young people competing at the show on Saturday. Jack Briscoe of Futura Kelpies, bottom left, showed his shearing skills to an attentive audience, bottom right. Pictures: Yanni

Eagles to soar high again PENINSULA LEAGUE PREVIEW

cruited very well. The Redlegs were thereabouts last season but their recruits have also been sensational. John Meesen, the former Melbourne ruckman who stands almost seven foot tall, has joined the club. Matty Dunne is back from Noble Park. Darren Booth, after three dominant seasons at Rye, returns to the fold. Adam Littlechild also rejoins the group. Mt Eliza is going to be a threat. Bonbeach has to be a flag contender. So close but yet so far from win-

ning the ultimate prize last season. Was this a burning motivation in the off-season? Or have the Sharks got a grand final hangover? Shane McDonald broke his arm in an intra-club game and will miss the first few rounds. Former Melbourne and Brisbane Lion Travis Johnstone is a big in for the Sharks. Frankston YCW has undergone a changing of the guard. They’ve lost a few, including 120 goals from their two Under 18s premiership side forwards, who have gone to other clubs.

The key to this team for a number of years has been Ash Eames, however, they still have the likes of Byron Barry, Tony Lester, Dave Bodley, Brad Ulms, Stuart Macleod, Kyle Hutchison, Ben Tellis, Jai Coghlan and Ricky Morris. In not-so-good news, Stevey Roberts, who returned this season, has done his knee once again, while Anthony Barry has crossed to the VFL to play at Williamstown. Mornington has recruited extremely well and they have more depth than last season. Chris Paxino is fit and firing. Daniel Villani is in Queensland due to work commitments but expected back in the second half of the year. Keep an eye out for the Nolan brothers, Dale (a forward) and Danny (midfielder), who have joined mate Anthony Franchina. Myles Jamieson is a former Murray Bushranger and Michael Williams returns after three years studying in Ballarat. To be frank, it’s hard to see the top five changing. Langwarrin looks to be the only side outside of the top bracket capable of challenging, given their recruits. They have recruited smartly and now have a lot of players in the

ed well, including former Melbourne forward Russell Robertson, who will line-up at times this season. Dual league medal winner Beau Miller has also been added to their long list of recruits, along with seven time best and fairest winner Jesse Dehey and Billy Hayes. Hastings has done extremely well in the off-season. Many say that they have replaced what they lost. I see it differently. The 2014 quality far outweighs those that left at the end of last season. Justin Berry and Brendan Dunne are stars. Red Hill is another club that got busy in the off-season. Height may be an issue but midfield rotations won’t be. A Frankston YCW connection, headlined by Paul Wintle and Blake McCormack, along with Michael Dillon from Port Melbourne and Matthew Hyden from Ballarat are sure to raise some eyebrows in this league. The Hillmens’

pre-season form has been superb, resulting in three wins, including one against Bonbeach, who played in the Peninsula Grand Final last season. Somerville has also added some quality to its list, none more so than new coach David ‘Budda’ Hirst and Cal Dixon. Tim Hirst is an underrated defender/ midfielder and Marcus Bate returns from the Bombers. Another year of play into the 17 and 18 year-olds should see them improve, although they were beaten by an undermanned Langwarrin in a practice match to the tune of 90 points. Rye too needed to get on their bike and recruit and they did. The Demons expect big things from the Semmel brothers, although Ryan is in the mix and highly likely to be on the reality TV show, The Rookie, hosted by former Lions superstar and coach Michael Voss. He’ll miss a handful of games, depend-

ing on when or if he is evicted from the ‘house’. Sorrento has recruited well in getting Brodie Webb and Ryan Williams from Tasmania, while Dave Lawson returns home. Cayden Beetham is a big loss, Scott Cameron isn’t playing yet and Guy Stringer won’t rush his way into a long season. Mitch Nibbs has retired and Ben Schwarze is injured. Rosebud was just two points away from a grand final last season after leading by 16 points heading into time on. The Buds have lost arguably the league’s best player last season in Matthew Payne. Three recruits from Sorrento, including Dan Hickey and Jackson Wells, are clever gets. Frankston Bombers and Tyabb appear to be the hardest hit in the off-season. After a woeful finals series, the Bombers coach Duncan Proud resigned and

By Toe Punt WHO will challenge Edithvale-Aspendale in 2014? That is the burning question as we prepare for the opening bounce of the new season. You won’t get arguments from anyone in the Eagles’ nest that they ‘pinched’ a premiership last season. After all, the Eagles just scraped over the line in the elimination final against Mornington. However, from that point, they didn’t look back and were able to go on and taste the ultimate success. The Eagles’ bigger plans were always geared towards 2014, this season rather than last year, and their recruiting has been exceptional. Jarrod Garth, a full forward from Keilor, is expected to take this competition by the throat. His former coach Micky McGuane has huge wraps on him. Beau Turner also wanders back into the place, while Brad Gilder adds some spice through the middle, and there are a handful of others who join the reigning premiers. They are going to be very hard to beat. Mt Eliza is another side that has re-

Eagles dare to dream: Edithvale-Aspendale emerged victorious as premiers last season and may repeat the feat this year. Picture: Andrew Hurst

22-25 age bracket. Rikki Johnson and Matty Dimkos are great recruits who will add size and experience. It’s hard to mount an argument though on who will make way for the Kangas in the top bracket. Karingal has lost 14 walk-up start senior players and a couple who were in and out of the side last season. That can’t be good, even if you have replaced them with 12 recruits, eight of them coming from Noble Park. Chelsea is starting from a long way back but will be more competitive in 2014 after doing some recruiting. Pines came so close last season. They were super fit and committed. Question is, can they back it up? The list doesn’t appear to have changed too much, other than Brendan Neville leaving for Lang Lang. They have a few kids, including Jayden Luca who had stints with Langwarrin, Dromana and Mornington. Seaford is an unknown. The Tigers were disappointing last season with just six wins. They have a new coach in Ben Crowe and it will be interesting to see how he goes at the helm. Luke Smith is another good in, while there are some kids coming through. Brayden Irving is a massive loss.

players looked elsewhere. Retirements to key players will hurt, including the Lonie brothers, Haydn Moore, Shawn Wilkey and Brian O’Carroll. The Yabbies were rumoured to be shutting the doors in mid-February, but everything is back on track and recruiting is going well. Matty Dimkos, Ash and Nick Waterstone and Rohan and Tim McGrath are big outs for the Yabbies. Pearcedale has moved along nicely in the off-season, although Rohan Swan, Byron Hoe, Chris Hensby and Glenn Anderson are all significant losses. The Panthers have picked up a few though. Keep an eye on Troy Jacobson from Somerville who will fly under the radar. Crib Point has recruited some real quality, headlined by Brad Arnold and Dean Warry. The loss of Dave Lawson will have an impact.

Expect a tasty dish to be served

NEPEAN LEAGUE PREVIEW By Toe Punt AFTER months of training and player movements, it’s time to settle down and enjoy the sensational dish that we can expect to be served up this season. It seems like such a long time ago since Dromana captain and coach Rikki Johnston and Gavin Artico held aloft the 2013 premiership cup after belting Sorrento in the grand final by a whopping 79 points. Today, both ‘Rikki J’ and Artico are representing another club (Langwarrin). Dromana won’t be the side they were last season. They’ve lost too many quality players to be the dominant force they were in 2013. In saying that, they’ll still be in the mix. A number of sides have recruited very well, the majority of which are starting from a long way back. Devon Meadows seem to have recruit-

When ever I teach, play and even talk to people about their game l always hear “l tried to hit this amazing shot under/over a tree if l did l would have shot a much better score”. Selecting the right club, shot is vital but expectations and capabilities can get cluttered when playing golf. Don’t worry about the outcome just the process. To enjoy golf more taking your medicine chipping the ball out of the trees not going for that risk reward shot 5 is better than 6,7or even more. Example practice hitting high, low shots, left to right, and right to left shots. (Hit more greens) Humble yourself go for the middle of the green you will be surprised how many more greens you will hit. Don’t go for the front left pin over the bunker. Ever heard or felt if l swing easy it goes as far if not better, well Sam Snead winner of over 165 Golf Tournaments was quoted “l only play at 80%”. 82 of them on the P.G.A Tour.
