Ben snaps top catch THE annual Mates Day on the Bay looked like being a tough one for fishos on Sunday with strong northerlies making for choppy seas but many participants brought home nice fish for supper. Mates Day, started in 1999 by Futurefish Foundation, gives people with a disability the chance to get out on the water and snap up a feed as well as enjoy the outdoors afloat. Lynette Hogan, who manages Launching Way at Patterson River with her husband Trevor, said more than 230 people with disabilities and their carers had booked for the event. Seventy boats and their skippers and deckhands ventured onto the water. Lunch for all: At the boat ramp on Sunday was Ben Reekie of Mornington (right), who caught one of the biggest snappers of the day. His mates deckhand Jim, Ben and boat skipper Garry were suitably impressed. Picture: Gary Sissons

Shire reveals its top 20 By David Harrison MORNINGTON Peninsula ratepayers can for the first time see a glimpse of the list of shire-owned and controlled land and buildings. Councillors last week agreed to release details of the 20 most valuable assets that help make up the $2 billion total listed in the annual report.

Civic Reserve in Mornington tops the list at $24 million, followed by the municipal office in Rosebud at $22.3 million and Sorrento foreshore at $18.9 million. The release follows councillors being asked by The News if they believed ratepayers should know the value of properties managed on their behalf by the shire.

Most councillors shied away from expressing their views, saying the mayor, Cr Lynn Bowden, would answer for them. No reply was received from the mayor. Melbourne and Frankston councils recently released lists of their most valuable properties. Cr Graham Pittock, who moved to have the shire follow their example,

Jacqueline Conquest Accredited Family Law Specialist Collaborative family lawyer

sought to take the matter further. At the most recent council meeting, he asked that the public be given a list of the top 50 assets, with a longer list to come. This was opposed by a group led by Cr Anne Shaw, supported by David Garnock, Andrew Dixon – who vacillated between an asset list of 20 and one of 50 – Frank Martin and Antonella Celi. They managed to limit

Peninsula MPs ‘safe’ in new boundaries

Big Day Out beckons for area bands MORNINGTON Peninsula bands are being offered the chance to win the gig of a lifetime, performing alongside some of the biggest bands in the world at 2014 Big Day Out. The entry period for the Headspace Big Day Out band competition opened last week to up and coming youth bands from across the country. Four winners in each state will be invited to play on the Headspace stage at Big Day Out concert in their closest capital city. Entries, which close on 27 October, can be lodged online, with bands asked to submit an original song, a picture and short bio. Members of the public then have three weeks to vote for their favourite band, with the most popular going onto a shortlist. An industry panel will select four winners from each state. Mornington Peninsula band Monoxide said winning a spot to perform at Big Day Out would be a great opportunity to elevate their status. “For us, playing on the Big Day Out stage would be the greatest opportunity of all time; it would be incredible,” Monoxide lead singer and guitarist Joseph Dipisa said. Big Day Out CEO Adam Zammit said it was exciting to be able to offer such a unique opportunity to up and coming bands. “Not only are we giving young musicians a chance to shine nationally and internationally, but also we are

driving attention to Headspace centres and the critical the work they do for the state of youth mental health in Australia,” Mr Zammit said. Headspace CEO Chris Tanti said initiatives such as the Big Day Out band competition helped put mental health on the agenda in a way that made sense to young people. “We know that music is a really important part of young people’s lives, so extending our involvement with Big

Day Out will help us reach thousands of young people,” he said. “We want to improve the lives of young Australians, so we need to make sure they know there’s youth friendly support available.” Headspace also runs FReeZA, which hosts popular regional Push Start Battle of the Bands competitions.

By Mike Hast THE Mornington Peninsula’s three sitting state Liberal MPs will see little change in their margins following the release last Thursday of new electoral boundaries. The boundaries will be used at the state election in November next year. The trios’ former Liberal Party colleague Geoff Shaw has not been so lucky in his seat of Frankston, with his margin being slashed from 2.1 per cent to 0.4 per cent with the addition of voters from Frankston North, formerly in the Cranbourne electorate, which is held by Labor’s Jude Perera. Mr Perera’s electorate shrinks substantially, losing Carrum Downs and Sandhurst to Carrum (Donna Bauer, Liberal) and Langwarrin to Hastings. His margin drops from 1.8 to 1.1 per cent. Nepean MP (and Education Minister) Martin Dixon’s margin drops from 14.3 to 13.7 per cent in his southern peninsula electorate. He gains Balnarring and Somers voters. Mornington MP David Morris’s margin goes up – from 16 to 16.2 per cent – after gaining Moorooduc voters from Hastings electorate.

Hastings MP Neale Burgess’s margin drops from 10.8 to 9.6 per cent after “losing” voters from Balnarring, Somers, Moorooduc and Langwarrin. The margin estimates have been calculated by the ABC’s psephologist Antony Green and there is an error margin of about 0.5 per cent. In Victoria’s lower house of 88 electorates (seats), 73 retain their old name, 15 names have been deleted and 15 have new names. Four electorates have been abolished. Based on 2010 election results, the Liberals could gain four seats, taking one from their Coalition partners the National Party and three from the ALP. More than one million voters will change electorates. It is the first redistribution since 2001 and has been made due to population changes. Each of the 88 seats are designed to represent about 41,000 voters with voting laws requiring electorates to be within plus or minus 10 per cent of that figure. More on the redistribution including maps can be found at the Electoral Boundaries Commission website, www.ebc.vic.gov.au

In a sometimes bizarre debate that, in the words of Cr Martin, was going in circles, councillors often appeared not to know what they were voting for while arguing on one side for transparency and the public’s right to know, and on the other berating the fact that the debate had been initiated by “a reporter�. Cr Pittock gave examples of blocks of land that had “disappeared� off the shire register, and asked his colleagues if they knew that properties such as the Safety Beach foreshore were council owned. Civic Reserve, like many of the assets named, is unlikely to be put on the market and is in a real sense more a liability than an asset as it must be maintained and kept up to date.

Students battle graffiti scourge By Chris Brennan A GROUP of Balcombe Grammar School students is ready to take up the fight against graffiti after completing a training program. They identified strategies to reduce the cost and social impact of illegal “street art”. Six students took part in the Mindshop Excellence Program and were asked to provide recommendations on how to combat graffiti on the Mornington Peninsula. The five-day program, held earlier this month, was co-hosted by asset maintenance company Transfield Services and Mornington Peninsula Shire. The students assessed community attitudes toward graffiti and its root causes, conducting interviews with peninsula schools, police and residents. They came up with measures and suggestions for the most environmentally sensitive and cost-efficient means of removing graffiti and discouraging further attacks. Recommendations included reducing the visibility of graffiti by planting tree and shrub barriers at popular tagging locations, providing schoolbased education programs, and utilising a new, cost-effective graffiti removal product that is environmentally safe and quick and easy to use. Student Joel Blake said the group had gained invaluable experience during the process. “The Mindshop program was a fantastic opportunity for us to break away from the school environment and gain some real-life work experience in a local industry,” he said. “It’s great

to know the suggestions we came up might have a positive impact on our community.” Transfield, which provides graffitiremoval services and has a 15-year relationship with the shire, is reviewing the recommendations. “The task challenged the students to think outside the box as well as work in a team efficiently and productively,” Transfield’s shire maintenance con-

He said the project was valuable as it “provided an opportunity for gathering the perspectives of young people on the issue of graffiti and its removal”. The shire has a range of anti-graffiti programs and provides free graffiti removal kits and discount vouchers to residents to assist in removing graffiti attacks on private property. Instances of graffiti can be reported to the shire on 1300 850 600.

tract manager Karen Miller said. “It is great to get the students to come up with ideas that we sometimes don’t think of ourselves, which we can then implement in our business.” The shire’s maintenance services acting team leader Graham Riley congratulated the students on their “great work”. He said their ideas would be investigated by the council.

MORNINGTON Peninsula farmers have been warned to pay close attention to safety issues over the busy harvest season, especially when using machinery. WorkSafe’s Lisa Sturzenegger said three recent farm deaths in Victoria demonstrated the high-risk nature of farming. “As the warmer months are fast approaching, the hay season is about to get under way and farmers are getting busier and preparing for the season ahead,” Ms Sturzenegger said. “But we know from past experience that it only takes a moment for a rushed decision to turn into a tragic one. We want everyone to put safety at the front of their mind, reassess their systems of work and, if there’s a safety risk, make changes.” The message to peninsula farmers was a simple one, she said: “Don’t take shortcuts with safety.” “Nobody – workers, family, friends or the wider community – should have to suffer the trauma of a workplace fatality. Tell your loved ones where you’ll be if you’re working alone, carry a phone, ensure vehicles are properly maintained and wear appropriate safety gear for the task at hand.” This week during Work Safe Week, more than 100 seminars are being held offering advice on safety issues.

Epic journey takes toll on shearwaters DOZENS of short-tailed shearwaters are being found washed up on Mornington Peninsula beaches including on Mothers Beach in Mornington, Mt Martha and Rosebud as well as at Chelsea. The sorry sight is an annual event as shearwaters, also known as muttonbirds, return to Australia from the northern hemisphere, but the cause of death is still not fully understood. Wildlife photographer Glenn Ehmke said shearwaters were the most abundant seabird species in Australian waters. “They breed on Phillip Island and on small islands in Bass Strait and Tasmania as well as on Mud Islands and the South Channel Fort in Port Phillip,” he said. There were about one million birds on Phillip Island in summer. Babel Island in Bass Strait has 2.8 million birds. “They migrate at the end of our summer to the seas off the Aleutian Islands near Alaska and return in the southern spring down the coast of California and across the Pacific Ocean.” Mr Ehmke, formerly of Mornington and now a Chelsea resident, said it was not uncommon to find dead or dying shearwaters. “We think many die of exhaustion, injuries or starvation during a journey of up to 12,000 kilometres, one of the longest migrations in the world.” He said they were “tough little birds” but lack of food and storms during their flight south take a toll.

“Two years ago, thousands of dead shearwaters were found on beaches on the east and southeast coast of Australia.” A large majority make it home and are now busy feeding on fish and squid. Mr Ehmke said shearwaters make feeding trips into the Southern Ocean travelling 1500 kilometres and leaving their chicks for up to a week or longer.

A recent problem for shearwaters is small pieces of plastic rubbish floating in the seas. This may be one reason why they die during migration. Back in Australia, they pick up plastic and feed it to their chicks. The Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service allows about 200,000 chicks to be removed from their burrows and sold by commercial operators each year. Mike Hast

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s no-charge green waste weekend is 26-27 October at the shire’s three waste disposal centres in Tyabb, Mornington and Rye. It is the second for the year and the shire is promoting it as a chance to clean up properties well before the fire season starts. The service is for shire residents only, with green waste accepted from domestic vehicles and trailers only. Green waste includes all types of garden waste and untreated timber. The green waste will be treated and mulched, reducing waste sent to landfill. No commercial vehicles or green waste from commercial operations will be accepted. Proof of residency is required, either

a driver’s licence or rates notice. Transfer stations are in McKirdys Rd, Tyabb; Watt Rd, Mornington; and Truemans Rd, Rye. They are open 8am-5pm both days. Mornington can only accept up to three cubic metres of green waste per trip. The shire said that due to the popularity of the service, delays might occur at disposal centres, particularly at the beginning and end of each day. Residents living in urban areas can contact the shire to receive a kerbside green waste bin. There is a cost for this service. For information about the green waste weekend or opt-in green bin, call customer service on 1300 850 60 or 5950 1000.

Better eating beckons A WORKSHOP that aims to improve dietary habits will be conducted by naturopath and nutritionist Melissa Rolfe at the Grand Hotel in Mornington next month.

For the 25-34 age group, the figure was a mere 3.4 per cent. The workshop aims to show busy people how easy and quick it is to get enough fruits and vegetable into the daily diet. Ms Rolfe will demonstrate how to prepare meals “in mere minutes� with fresh, seasonal ingredients to boost health. “The workshop addresses the issues of time, taste and how to do it easily so the whole family can benefit,� she said. “The workshop will helps correct one of the key causes of chronic disease – poor diet.

Beach closed: Landslides and waves have taken their toll of structures along what is left of the beach at Mt Martha north. Pictures: Keith Platt

Beach closed after steps collapse By Keith Platt THERE appears to be no stopping cliffs at Mt Martha being eroded from the top and bottom. Waves constantly eat at the base of the cliffs, while cracks in the soil further up are usually followed by land slips. The latest movement has wrecked wooden stairs built from the Esplanade to Mt Martha Beach North, near Alice St. The $118,000 cost of the stairway was shared between Mornington Pen-

insula Shire and the Department of Environment and Primary Industries. No decision has been made on the future of the stairway. The waves tore concrete steps away from the base of the cliff while a landslip left a yawning gap in the steps. The top of the stairs has been boarded up by Mornington Peninsula Shire, effectively closing off access to the beach for about one kilometre between the car park near the mouth of Balcombe Creek and Craigie Rd. Repairs are planned to the seawall at the Craigie Rd beach.

The latest failure follows the loss of two other stairways wrecked by the same combination of battering by waves and landslides. The beach along that section of coast has all but disappeared, with the only access being through thick bush growing behind the boat sheds. The beach was “renourished” in May 2010, but surveys commissioned by DEPI show that much of the sand trucked from Mt Martha Beach South was lost within two months. A net loss of sand has been recorded since, with some of it coming back

naturally over summer. A beach box near the Alice St stairway also hit by the latest storms was ordered removed by the shire. In response to questions from The News, the shire said its officers had inspected all beach boxes at Mt Martha Beach North and was “working closely with licensees and Department of Environment and Primary Industries officers to ensure a coordinated response in relation to appropriate standards and the regulatory framework”. The shire said the Alice St stairs were designed by a consultant “based

on survey and a geotechnical report”. “There have been a number of reports previously undertaken in the Mt Martha north area, and further reports will be undertaken as part of a broad monitoring program. “This is coastal crown land, and the shire will work with DEPI to support efforts in addressing the ongoing land stability issues. “The stabilising behind the bathing boxes at Mt Martha North was undertaken by DEPI.”

Mamils cross for a good cause CYCLING is a huge recreation sport but true two-wheel stalwarts are the ones who have cycled around Port Phillip, a gruelling 250 kilometres, on what was known as Around the Bay in a Day when it started 21 years ago. On the weekend, the event – now called Around the Bay: Fundraise for The Smith Family, and regarded as one of Melbourne’s major sporting events – again attracted

thousands of mamils (middleaged men in lycra) as well as women and those not in their middle years. A key element of the ride is the respite gained when riders cross between Sorrento and Queenscliff (or vice versa) aboard Searoad ferries’ MV Queenscliff, MV Sorrento and MV Peninsula Princess, the original ferry that started in 1987. About 2700 riders took part in 1993, with another 1000

knocked back due to lack of ferry capacity. Last year more than 17,000 riders entered. A similar figure was expected on Sunday but strong northerlies may have put off some entrants. The wind abated in the afternoon, making the journey back to Melbourne easier. Above, riders come off a ferry at Sorrento on Sunday to head up Point Nepean Rd. Picture: Yanni

Healthier lifestyle options on offer at expo THE Peninsula Health and Wellbeing Expo is this weekend, with more than 60 exhibitors offering advice and guidance on a wide range of products and services to help visitors discover more fulfilling and healthy lifestyles. Now in its third year, the free event aims to help people start new habits for improved mental, physical and spiritual health. The expo at Mornington Racecourse will bring together specialists in a range of fields including health, wellbeing, nutrition and sustainable living. They will offer advice on subjects such as landscape gardening, managing power bills, diet and family health challenges. The event’s organiser, naturopath Jo Schutt, said more than 2000 people attended last year. “So often we have to head to Melbourne for an event like this,” she said. “Offering it under one roof on the peninsula allows residents easy access to insights into caring for themselves through fitness and lifestyle services, developmental activities and family advice as well as the latest on sustainable practices, fair trade and organic products. Ms Schutt said the one-day event would provide a touch, tell, taste, and try experience as well as help visitors discover the depth and range of health and wellbeing services on the peninsula. The expo is on from 10am-4pm on Sunday 27 October at Mornington Racecourse, Racecourse Rd. Entry is free. Details: Visit www.phwe. com.au or www.facebook.com/ PeninsulaHealthWellbeingExpo

What’s Happening at Bentons Square

Maree Abbott Centre Manager

Summer Health Tips With summer holidays just around the corner Dr Michael Aizen, a senior doctor at Epichealth Medical Clinic in Bentons Square Mornington has some great tips for us on looking after ourselves and children on those hot and sunny days.

Sun Exposure: Sunburn occurs when bare skin is exposed to the sun for long periods of time. It is important to have shelter, UV sunglasses, hats, and protective clothing to provide sun protection and apply sunscreen to exposed areas regularly throughout the day. If you notice any new freckles, or dark lesions arising or changes in appearance, we encourage you to see your doctor for a skin check.

Dehydration: It is easy to become dehydrated on hot summer days and regular water intake is essential. Soft drinks and alcohol are not substitutes for water for rehydration.

Good, better, best: More than 2000 people attended last year’s Peninsula Health and Wellbeing Expo and an even bigger turnout is expected for this year’s event

Con men spring into action POLICE and Consumer Affairs officials have warned homeowners to be on the lookout for travelling con men offering cheap deals for odd jobs. Crime Stoppers Victoria and Consumer Affairs Victoria have warned Mornington Peninsula residents to be especially wary of “today-only” deals over the busy spring renovation period. Minister for Consumer Affairs Heidi Victoria said cheap, shoddy work on houses could cost much more in the long run. She said travelling con men become more active with the arrival of spring, targeting homeowners as they started to look at ways to repair or upgrade their properties. “They doorknock for work such as painting, roof restoration, driveway work and tree-lopping and put you under pressure to agree to get the work done immediately,” she said “Sometimes they even drive you to bank teller machines to get payment upfront. “If you suspect a travelling con man is knocking, don’t open your door, but if you do speak to them, ask them to leave. If they refuse, they’re breaking the law.” Residents are being asked to record as much information as possible about suspected con men, such as the name they use, physical description and vehicle make and rego details. Crime Stoppers Victoria chief executive Samantha Hunter said homeowners needed to be vigilant to protect themselves and others. Sightings of travelling con men will be highlighted on a Facebook page (www. facebook.com/StopTravelling ConMen) as well as Consumer Affairs Vic- toria’s social media channels. For more details: www. consumer.vic.gov.au/travellingconmen or www. crimestoppers.com.au

Mothers should top up babies bottles and breast milk with boiled water. Small children should be encouraged to drink frequently during the day; icy poles are also excellent for fluid replacement.

Water Safety: Pools, lakes, ponds, and beaches mean summer fun and cool relief from hot weather but water also can be dangerous. Kids need constant supervision around water. Watch your children at all times when around water. Don’t let them wander very far from adults and never let children into water without adult supervision. Don’t forget to reapply sunscreen, especially if the kids are getting wet.

Foot Injuries:

Please join us for the official exhibition opening on Saturday 26 October, 11am

MEMORY TRACES an exquisite painting exhibition by Wendy Grace Also featuring paintings by Monica Adams

Meet artists Wendy Grace & Monica Adams over a glass of wine, nibbles & live music at Manyung at Sorrento.

Dr Michael Aizen sees many foot injuries over summer. These are usually a result from people wearing thongs or no footwear at all when riding bicycles, skateboards and running and walking. Cut feet can occur in rocky shallows or coral, cheap plastic sandals are ideal for paddling about in water at the beach.

For more information please feel free to contact one of our friendly receptionists at Epichealth Medical on (03) 9044 0100 or to schedule an appointment to see Dr Michael Aizen. Practice Coordinator Epichealth Medical

High fives for bestselling children’s author By Chris Brennan BESTSELLING children’s author Julie Davey of McCrae has created a mobile phone application that is being hailed by parents and educators as a “breakthrough tool” in helping guide young people through early life challenges. The FabFirst5 app is an interactive program that provides children with step-by-step coaching on how to “shift their focus from problems to possibilities, and frame their day more positively,” Ms Davey said. Released last week, the app teaches children aged 5-12 “emotional reframing techniques” and encourages them to adopt a more positive outlook and build betting coping mechanisms. Ms Davey is well known on the peninsula for her numerous schools visits and workshops as well as attending Mornington and Red Hill markets to promote her acclaimed children’s psychology book A for Attitude, which has sold more than 40,000 copies. She’s is a member of Rosebud-Rye Rotary Club’s youth committee and has received backing from the organisation for her “positive attitude” education crusade. Ms Davey said the app would enable her to spread her work to a wider audience, helping teach children, teachers and parents around the world the importance of resolving anxiety and building resilience in young people. She said the app’s title referred to the premise that “everyone can achieve positive possibilities from a positive outlook in the first five minutes of their day”. “For children to thrive, it helps if they can release worries, giving them the head space to consider other possibilities and solutions,” she said. “I believe this app helps kids and parents become more responsible, resilient and conscious of opportunities available to them. “Many kids feel more comfortable communicating through the screen and the app is an ideal tool to enhance the teaching and counselling of

experienced staff and parents as they reach out to kids and work through issues together.” She said one of the app’s most popular features was the “PossibiliTree”, a visual tool that encourages users to “turn worries into wishes and problems into PossibiliTrees”. “By inviting the young user to record their personal challenges onto leaves of the PossilbiliTree, the program demonstrates examples of how to manage problems and work through steps to consider more positive outcomes.” Ms Davey’s skill at simplifying adult concepts and using colourful illustrations and graphics to deliver simple, easy-to-follow positive thinking techniques for young minds has seen her popularity grow across the world. She started working life as a nurse, witnessing the power of positive attitude and how it affected both physical and mental health. She saw the need to teach young people techniques to build self-worth. This led to her writing and illustrating A for Attitude, which was self-published in 1998 and is distributed in 14 countries. She still finds time to engage with young people in her own area and recently visited Boneo, Rosebud, Rye and Tootgarook primary schools. Rosebud primary teacher Heidi Kerr has been trialling the FabFirst5 app in her classroom for the past few weeks. She said the program had already had a positive impact on pupils. “The program is very good for my students. We have been putting our worries away in the morning by posting them on our PossibiliTree,” she said. “The kids have responded in a very positive way and remind me when we haven’t ‘done our tree’ in the morning. “I have some pupils who come from very sad family lives and they are finding the tree a good way to focus on the positives in their lives and have a good day at school.”

Port planner’s invite to public ‘experts’ THE Port of Hastings Development Authority is establishing three community groups so it can tap into the “extensive experience and expertise” of people in the Western Port area. “We know there are diverse views in the community about container expansion. That is why establishing this [PORTicipate] network early in the process is so important,” the authority’s CEO Mike Lean said. “We want to ensure community groups, environmental organisations, local businesses and other key stakeholders, have up-to-date information and the opportunity to contribute to the planning and progress of this critical infrastructure project.” PORTicipate, a “stakeholder engagement network”, will comprise three groups: community, environment and business. “It will be one of a number of initiatives to encourage community involvement in the container expansion project over the next three to four years, as planning continues and detailed scientific studies begin,” Mr Lean said. The authority is inviting expressions of inter-

est from individuals and organisations “with a strong interest in the port’s expansion and specific knowledge relating to the community, environment and business” to join PORTicipate. “There is extensive experience and expertise in the Western Port community. Harnessing this expertise and ensuring community input in the container expansion project is critical to achieving the best outcomes for the region.” The move to involve the public in port planning follows consultants being hired for geotechnical and geophysical surveys as well as Esso spending $150 million on its existing fractionation plant. Esso’s money will pay for maintenance and rebuilding, including upgrading two of three gas fractionation “trains” that produce ethane, propane and butane as well as installing a system to remove mercury from water in the oil and gas it gets from Bass Strait. Details about joining one of the stakeholder groups are at www.portof hastings.com Expressions of interest close Sunday 3 November.

Esso’s new replacement pipe pipeline “represents another significant investment in the continuation of our Gippsland operations, which have provided crude oil, condensate, LPG and natural gas to the Australian market since 1969”. Longford is southeast of Sale in Gippsland and is Esso’s onshore plant that receives crude oil and gas from Bass Strait. At its plant near Hastings, Esso extracts ethane, propane and butane from natural gas. It also stores crude oil before it is sent to refineries in Australia and overseas. Mike Hast

Echo Taskforce chief Detective Superintendent Peter De Santo said Hells Angles members fired shots into their own Darkside chapter clubhouse in Patrick Court to turn investigators away from thinking they were the aggressors in the ongoing bikie feud. “When you use a high-powered rifle or AK-47, it’s a bit hard to put all the shots into the factory next door and then your clubhouse ends up with one 22 round,” he said.

POLICE are hunting a 29-year-old man believed to have been involved in the shooting of another man linked to the Comanchero outlaw motorcycle gang at Arthurs Seat late last month. Armed Crime Taskforce detectives are seeking public assistance to locate William Charles Thomason, pictured right, in relation to the alleged firearms incident on 29 September. Investigators have serious concerns for the welfare of 29-year-old Thomason, who is believed to be involved in the incident, and are appealing to him to contact police. A man believed to be affiliated with the Comanchero outlaw motorcycle gang admitted himself to the Royal Melbourne Hospital with a gun shot wound to his upper body around 2.45pm on Sunday 29 September. The man discharged himself from the hospital a short time later. Police have attempted to speak to the man but said he was not cooperating. Investigators believe the shooting is linked to an earlier report of a verbal altercation and gun shot at Arthurs Seat. Thomason is believed to be travelling in a dark blue coloured Holden Statesman and was last seen in the Glenroy area several days ago. He is believed to still be armed and police have warned members of the public not to approach him but to instead call Crime Stoppers if they were aware of his whereabouts. Anyone with information about the incident or knowledge of Thomason’s whereabouts is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or visit www.crimestoppers.com.au. In further news involving outlaw motorcycle gang activity in the area, the head of Victoria’s anti-bikie taskforce revealed last week that police now believe the Hells Angels shot up their own Seaford clubhouse in an attempt to con-

ESSO Australia will replace its crude oil and gas pipe between Longford and Long Island Point near Hastings. The company is seeking regulatory approval and hopes to start construction later this year. The 350mm diameter pipe will take 6-9 months to build. The new pipe will be built next to the one built in 1969, which was partially replaced in 1980 and is about 700mm. Esso said the old pipe would be cleaned and left in place in accordance with its licence. An Esso spokesman said the replacement

Founder â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;devastatedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by fuel trucks furore By Mike Hast THE founder of Cootes Transport says he is â&#x20AC;&#x153;devastatedâ&#x20AC;? by the furore surrounding his former company. Ian Cootes, 71, started with one fuel tanker in Frankston in 1965 and built up the business to be one of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading tanker firms with about 800 employees before selling out 13 years ago to ION Ltd and resigning from its board 10 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First and foremost, my condolences go to the families of the two people killed in Sydney,â&#x20AC;? he told The News from his home in an inner Melbourne bayside suburb. He was also sad for employees of the company â&#x20AC;&#x153;who have worked diligently for many yearsâ&#x20AC;?. Mr Cootes would not be drawn into criticising the company that now owns Cootes, the Queensland-based McAleese Group, which bought it from CHAMP Private Equity about 18 months ago. Dozens of Cootes-branded trucks have been taken off the road after inspections in Victoria and NSW found defects in much of the fleet. The inspections came after a Cootes tanker exploded in a northern Sydney suburb last week, killing two people and injuring five. Cootes tankers being put off the road saw many service stations run out of unleaded petrol, diesel and gas earlier in the week when people panicked and bought extra supplies. The fuel â&#x20AC;&#x153;droughtâ&#x20AC;? has raised questions about the security of supplies, especially in big cities like Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide as many servos

Devastated: Cootes Transport founder Ian Cootes, who sold his former Seaford-based fuel and gas trucking company in 2000.

typically have just three daysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; supply. The Ian Cootes story is a classic one of building up a company by hard work, safety and engineering innovations, new technology, looking after employees, and being in the right place at the right time. In 1965, Mr Cootes would drive his tanker to collect fuel in Port Mel-

bourne (and later from a Dandenong depot supplied by BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refinery at Crib Point) and deliver it to about 24 servos between Seaford and Sorrento as well as on the Western Port side of the Mornington Peninsula. His truck carried the BP colours but he owned it. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do three loads a day and later employed a night driver.

In 1974 Mr Cootes won a contract to deliver heating oil for BP so bought more road tankers and built a depot in McCulloch Ave, Seaford, later moving to another site nearby. Ian Cootes was known as a stickler for keeping his fleet well maintained. A Frankston man told The News he and his father were contracted to lay bathroom-type tiles in a below-ground service bay where mechanics worked on the underside of Cootes vehicles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never seen anything like it; the place was as clean as a Formula 1 pit area.â&#x20AC;? When Cootes was sold to ION in late 2000 for cash and shares, it had 106 LPG tankers, 250 prime movers and 160 fuel trailers as well as trailers for carting chemicals and bitumen. Cootes had 70 per cent of the fuel tanker market and an enviable record of 17.5 per cent compound revenue growth for the previous decade. Mr Cootes joined IONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board, staying for three years before retiring in October 2004 and selling shares that had been part of the sale. In April 2002 it was reported under the headline â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tanker driver cashes in $5.4m worth of IONâ&#x20AC;? that Mr Cootes had decided it was time to take a few profits from his shares. It proved to be a prescient move. But the ION shares he retained lost value when the company had technical problems building its alloy casting business. This was the beginning of the end as ION went into administration in 2004, another victim of the decline of Australian manufacturing. The company also had a vehicle

transmission plant in Albury and a plant in Auckland making wheels for Ford. Mr Cootes said the company had a 50-year partnership with BP and a 35year partnership with Shell and the gas industry. In 2003, Mr Cootes was inducted into the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shell Rimula Wall of Fameâ&#x20AC;?. He was praised for introducing electronic delivery information; establishing an LPG terminal, a propylene plant, and a jet and aviation refuelling facilities at Melbourne Airport. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ian has developed and introduced many world-class initiatives to the transport of dangerous goods, liquids and gases,â&#x20AC;? the citation stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tanker construction developments have been designed and built in-house within the engineering division. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ian has created employment conditions that have attracted a very loyal team of drivers, workshop and operations staff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The top 60 longest-serving employees have more than 1000 years of service with Cootes.â&#x20AC;? Mr Cootes has been a member of the Australian Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association, the Australian Road Research Board, and the National Bulk Tanker Association. He was chairman of The Alfred hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foundation for six years and is now deputy chairman. He supports many charities including the Variety Club. A former Cootes driver posted a comment on a Melbourne radio stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website on Monday: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I bet these trucks would never [have] had these faults if Ian still had control of the company.â&#x20AC;?

Bees get the brush off and a move to better place THERE was nothing sweet about the surprise a woman had when she found bees swarming on her car at Hastings. However, what is inconvenient for one person is a gift for another. Apiarist John Grant soon arrived from Peninsula Pure Honey at Moorooduc to collect the swarm. “We’ll put them in a hive and build

them up,” Mr Grant said. He said the swarm, including the queen bee, would have come from a overcrowded hive near the car park. “They leave to make another hive and swarm when it’s warm.” While onlookers kept a wary distance, Mr Grant donned protective clothing, doused the bees with a fine

spray of water to prevent them taking flight, and used a small brush to sweep them into a box. Once they have formed a viable hive, the bees will be added to the “working bees” sent out by Peninsula Pure Honey to either produce honey for sale or to pollinate farmers’ crops and orchards.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Crib Point land to be sold, heavy storm causes trouble for Dromana Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 25 October 1913. WORD has been received locally that the Lands department intends to hold an auction shortly of several sections of the Government township at Crib Point. This, it is thought, will be the future township of the Flinders naval base. When the Commonwealth authorities were reserving land for naval purposes the township was withdrawn from settlement in case it also should be required, but some months ago the naval authorities notified the Lands department that this land would not be required for naval purposes. It was resurveyed, and about fifty blocks are to be offered for sale in response to a request from the Crib Point Progress Association that it should he thrown open for settlement. Much satisfaction is expressed locally at the news, as it will remove doubts as to further resumptions on the eastern side of the railway line, and will enable business people and others to obtain land in closer proximity to the railway station, which the town site adjoins. *** Mostly all fishermen with motor boats will be up at Henley this week. *** DURING the recent heavy storms the boat landing and some of the piles at Dromana were washed away, while at Sorrento the sea encroached behind the sheet piling and washed away the piling. The Public Works Department has been notified, and asked to repair the damage immediately. *** THE Sunday train to Mornington

commences tomorrow week. *** The Mornington and Somerville punters had a good day at Caulfield on Saturday. *** MR F. O. Chamberlin, of Frankston, is at present spending a holiday in Tasmania. *** A FINE schnapper, weighing 12 lbs., was caught by Mr T. Hutchins on Saturday last at Mornington. This was the first for this season. *** THE picnic season at Frankston commenced on Friday, when several hundred students of the Continuation School arrived by special train. With the advent of the warm weather other picnics are being arranged. *** THE Mornington lady tennis players, who were to have played Frankston at Frankston on Wednesday, did not undertake the trip, owing to the wet weather. The match is being arranged for a future date. *** THE hon. sec. of the Frankston Sports Club acknowledges the following donations:- Messrs A. E. Bates and H. Masterton, £1 is each; Messrs C. V. G. Williams, G. W.Wells. D. McDonald, and E. Worrall, 10s 6d each. *** ALL business places will be closed at Mornington on Wednesday, 12th November, in connection with the school children’s trip to the Zoological Gardens. The Brass Band will play selections in Frankston (weather permitting) on Sunday afternoon, 2nd November, when a collection will be

taken up in aid of the hospitals. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason held a most successful sale of furniture and miscellaneous goods at their mart, Frankston, on Wednesday last, when their auctioneer (Mr W. P. Mason) disposed of 355 lots in the remarkably

A strange fish of the flying species was caught at Stony Point ths eek. It’s measurements were about 6 inches long, with the head and wings of an owl and the body of a scaleless fish.

good time of 815 minutes. *** MESSRS T. R. B. Morton and Son advertise in this issue a great subdivisional auction sale of Tyabb Park Es-

tate on Monday, 3rd November, when 49 choice blocks, from 1 to 10 acres each, will be offered. The sale will be conducted on the estate. *** “I CANNOT find one fact in the evidence in mitigation of the sentence,” remarked Mr Justice Hodges, imposing a sentence of 18 months’ imprisonment on Richard Charles Gray, 34 years of age, in the Criminal Court on Monday. For having deserted his children, Gray was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment, and on a charge of bigamy to twelve months’ imprisonment, the sentences to be cumulative. “Even then,” said Mr Justice Hodges, “it is a light sentence.” Mr F. Tucke, who appeared on Gray’s behalf, had asked for leniency. *** THE committee of the Frankston Brass Band desire to thank the promoters and public for their efforts in connection with the bazaar held recently, in aid of their funds, which have been augmented to the extent of £87, a fact that shows how enthusiastic the response has been on behalf of the band. The following donations have also been received:- Mrs M. R. Deane, £1 Is; Mr C. Gray, £1 1s; Mr J. Grice, £1; Mr R. T. Picking, 10s 6d; Mr G. W Wells, 10s; Mr D. McDonald, 5s; Mr Fogarty, 2s 6d The band gave a concert on the 11th inst. in Bay Street, at which four new instruments, held by the band on approbation, were heard to advantage, and no doubt added to the general improvement of the band, which was favourably commented on by a great number of the supporters of the band. ***

AN accident which luckily terminated only in a jinker being smashed, occurred here last Saturday to Mr Ashton Woolley, senr. While out driving the horse shied, throwing the driver out, and upsetting and smashing the jinker. We are pleased to say Mr Wooley escaped without any injury. *** QUITE a sensation has been caused here through a number of the Naval Base employees being dismissed. Rumour had it that many more were about to be relieved of their duties, but this has so far proved to be wrong. As a great number of the men are married, and have bought and made homes for themselves, their dismissal would be very keenly felt. *** THE Rev C. H. Eva, clergyman of the Church of England, paid a visit to the local Sunday School last Sunday. He expressed himself well pleased with the progress made by the scholars. The Progress Association which has been formed here is likely to prove of great value. The first general meeting was held in the load hall, where the meetings and entertainments are to be held. *** THE boisterous weather of last week played great havoc with the fruit trees round here, the whole tree, in some cases, being completely stripped of its blossoms. *** A STRANGE fish of the flying species was caught at Stony Point this week. Its measurements were about 6 inches long, with the head and wings like an owl, and body of a scaleless fish. ***

Rage against the machines By Stuart McCullough I’VE always had an uneasy relationship with technology. Having seen the film Electric Dreams at an impressionable age, I accept that computers have a sizeable dark side and are capable of evil. Giorgio Moroder’s ubiquitous soundtrack to the film served only to reinforce the point. As we continue to outsource more and more of our everyday tasks, surely the day cannot be too far away when all the laptops and smart phones of the world rise up in a brutal takeover. Indeed, I fear that preparations are well advanced. I can only hope it’s not too late. When I was a kid, there was only one electronic gadget that was worth getting excited about – the television. Then along came video recorders and it was as though the future had suddenly arrived. These devices were about the size of a Ford Festiva; they could play videotapes and, even more excitingly, allowed you to record television programs. It was empowering. Mere mortals could watch one television program whilst taping another for future use. I say this knowing that it probably sounds about as interesting as porridge to generation Y but, once upon a time, this technology represented the cutting edge. However, possessing the power to record a television show was one thing. Figuring out how to program the device so that it began recording automatically was a different matter entirely. My father never mastered the art of programming a VCR, preferring instead to try and persuade it, first by

way of a staring competition and, ultimately, through threats of violence. Today, video recorders gather dust in millions of attics and cupboards, retained only in the unlikely emergency whereby someone desperately needs to watch a videotape. It was an age of wonder – an era in which schools kept their computers

in labs. Classes involving a computer appeared in the schedule as ‘computer science’. It was like learning a different language. I paid little attention, certain that these clunky devices – whose sole purpose seemed to be to give nerds something to talk about other than Dungeons and Dragons – would never be of much relevance to me. I am prepared to now concede that

I might have been wrong. At university, a handful of students brought laptops to class. I thought they had more money than sense. I preferred a pen and paper, despite the fact that my handwriting was (and remains) almost entirely illegible. There was no doubt in my mind that in the battle between typewriter and laptop which would ultimately prevail. I typed out my essays using corrective tape to fix up any errors. It was a solid and reliable machine that served me well. But, for the life of me, I couldn’t tell you what became of it. Chances are, I kept that typewriter long after it was sensible to do so. Now computers are everywhere and we are at their mercy. Seemingly nothing in life comes without some spurious website that’s trying to flog something or other, a point I make frequently at www.stuartmccullough. com. Many of these web pages seek to force a relationship, demanding that you set up an account. Such accounts, of course, require a password. By now, I have more passwords than I have any hope of remembering, meaning that the Internet at large refuses to believe that I am who I say I am. It’s as though it owns more of my identity than I do. It’s accepted that animals can sense fear. I’ve no doubt that computers are much the same. My laptop knows that I don’t really trust it and, for that reason, has decided to mess with my mind. Last week, the email system began demanding that I supply it with a password. This is despite my not having set a password. It’s like it’s daring

me to guess the number in its head. Things only got worse from there. Anyone who has ever typed anything into a computer knows the pain that comes from having the ‘spelling’ tuned to ‘US’ rather than ‘Australia’. This goes far beyond issues of dialect. I can accept that the term ‘schmozzle’ may not be in common usage throughout the English speaking world. But I deeply resent being told that I am misspelling ‘colour’ and ‘favour’. But for all the differences they are, at least, the same language. Then, last Tuesday, I was in the middle of writing an article when I decided to use the Thesaurus. As I clicked the button, I found that it had been set to ‘French’. Sacre bleu! Often, it’s easy to select the language but, try as I might, I couldn’t see any option for switching to English – either US or Australian. Having packed up my paper Thesaurus some time ago, I had little option but to go with French, even though I would have preferred Esperanto. It was, I fear, an act of retaliation. This means war. Every time I log on, I await the next salvo as my computer continues its campaign of terror. Whether it will demand I supply it with a password that doesn’t exist or direct me to a language other than my own is anyone’s guess. Perhaps it’s time to fight back. From now on, it’s paper and pen only. Granted, that will make it harder to update the website, but so be it. I might even dig out the old VCR and watch my copy of Electric Dreams, just for old time’s sake. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Panther skipper was Dew a century SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully PEARCEDALE skipper Chris Dew scored 104 to help his side to victory against Carrum Downs on Saturday in Sub District cricket. Dew shared a 148-run Pearcedale partnership with Shayne Gillings, who batted at four and made 67, helping their side to 286, a win of just 10 runs after the Cougars made 276 last week. At one stage, the Panthers were 8/247, still 19 runs short of victory. However, Mitch Andrew (34) and Travis Unthank (11) made sure they got their side over the line. Chamara Perera was outstanding with the ball for the Cougars with 4/95, while Josh Harkness helped himself to 3/63 from 17 overs. Tootgarook completed the expected and easily defeated Dromana. Chasing just 127 in the first innings, the Tooters raced to 191 in 44 overs. Klint James top scored with 74 while David Timmer snared 5/30 and Zac Clan 3/34 for the Hoppers. Tootgarook then bowled Dromana out a second time for just 153. Andrew Thompson top scored with 37 and Matt Whelan was the chief wicket taker for the Tooters with 3/25. Tootgarook then needed 18 overs to score the 100 runs needed to complete the outright win. Whelan scored 39

and Gary Richardson 36. Balnarring recovered from being 5/20 to beat Rosebud. Balnarring was in all sorts of trouble early in the match, before the tale wagged. They recovered to be all out for 201. Jacob Cook made 60 batting at 10, Mitch Kleinig scored 27 batting at nine, Andrew Dowey scored 25 and batting at 11, Mitchell Skvor made 20. Jason Peirce, Jason Nagel and Brian Doughty all claimed three wickets each for the Buds. Red Hill was able to defend its first inning score of 233, bowling out Frankston YCW for 148 in 60 overs. Jason Tucker top scored for the Stonecats with 45, while Mathew Lane scored 26 before being run out. Glen Collett picked-up 3/42 and Nick Wood helped himself to 3/13. Tyabb smashed Skye but failed in its attempt to pick-up an outright win against Skye. The Yabbies made 222 in the first week of the match before bowling out Skye for just 61. Rienzie Wijeratne claimed 4/25 and Jack Raeside took 3/15 for the Yabbies. In the second innings, Skye finished on 6/110. Neil Earnshaw top scored with 28, while Sam Holland-Burch was the pick of the Yabbies’ bowlers with 3/33.

Kangas make a statement against Langy PROVINCIAL By IT Gully LANGWARRIN proved that it has what it takes to compete with the best in MPCA Provincial cricket after it knocked over reigning premier Peninsula Old Boys on Saturday. Chasing 231 for victory, Langwarrin passed the total with just four wickets down. It finished at 4/261 with 15 overs to play. Opener Taylor Smith and all-rounder Andy Johnson scored 100 each for the Kangas. Smith batted intelligently and patiently for his 100, which included 10 fours. Johnson blasted 12 fours and two sixes on his way to 105.

At one stage, the Kangas were in some trouble at 3/22 after Justin Parkes caused some early damage. Parkes finished with 3/36. Baxter left arm seamer Adrian Mack proved the old dog still had plenty of tricks as he tore through the Long Island batting line-up on Saturday. Defending a score of 165, Baxter bowled out the Islanders for 109 in the 62nd over. Mack was at his best, bowling 15 overs and picking-up 4/25. Dale Irving and Marc Uccello also joined the party, snaring two wickets each. Only four Long Island batsmen made it into double figures. Justin Bridgeman top scored with

33, Stephen Hocking scored 20, Paul Hartle 16 and Greg Lamb 12. Scott Phillips had his timber rattled for a duck off the bowling of Mack. Mt Eliza successfully defended its 263 against Rye. The Demons lost wickets regularly throughout the innings, limping to 159 in 65.3 overs. Skipper Darren Groves top scored for Rye with 43. Tom Baron was absolutely sensational for the Mounties with the ball, bowling 29.3 overs and finishing with the astonishing figures of 8/40. He bowled 15 maidens. Bobby Wilson guided Moorooduc to a fantastic victory against Heatherhill, blasting 126 to help his side to 7/281.

Chasing Heatherhill’s 260 for victory, the Ducs were in some early trouble, losing both openers with the score on nine. However, the skipper came to the rescue with a well crafted ton, while he received great support from the likes of Ben Williams (37), Mark Cordeux (35) and David Greensmith (31). Matty Meagher completed a wonderful game personally after adding 3/65 to his score of 41 in week one of the match. Crib Point fell 70 runs short of beating Mornington, bowled out for 190 in 66.2 overs. The Magpies lost their first four wickets for just 42 runs, before Brad Davidson (34) and Ricky Thompson (80no) offered some resistance.

Thompson was looking the goods for a ton but ran out of batting partners and was left stranded 20 runs short. Matty Harper was the pick of the Doggies bowlers with 6/34 from 11.2 overs. In the tightest match of the round, Mt Martha went within eight runs of beating Sorrento. After being 7/94 at one stage, chasing Sorrento’s 232, the Reds lower order dug in and almost got them over the line. Ben Schreuder finished with 71 before being the last man out as he scrambled for a run. Tim Bateman was also good with 23 and number 11 batsman, Curtis Stone, finished not out on 19.

Wyatt smashes another ton DISTRICT By IT Gully MAIN RIDGE all-rounder Gareth Wyatt once again proved why is one of the best players ever to represent the Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association after he smacked 156 to guide his side to victory against Seaford Tigers. Chasing 265 for victory, Main Ridge appeared to be in a spot of bother at 3/69. However, keeper-batsman Ed Aarons and Wyatt joined one another at the crease and set about steering the Ridge ship to victory. Aarons was finally dismissed for 79 off the bowling of Corey Hand, while Wyatt went on to reach triple figures. James Abbott then played a cameo role at the end, scoring 68. Main Ridge finished their innings at 9/366, a commanding 100-run victory. Ash Mills snared four wickets for the Tigers, including the prized wicket of Wyatt. Pines made tough work of getting the 135 runs needed to beat Flinders. The Piners were 3/30 at one stage early in their innings, before Harley Peace-Stirling and Jeremy Weare got the side going again. Peace-Stirling scored 41 and Weare 35, while Ricky Anstill ensured victory with 25 runs, batting at nine. Dwayne Field bowled 28 overs and finished with 3/61, while Max Royal bowled 23 overs and finished with the tidy figures of 3/25, including 13 maidens. Hastings was always going to struggle to get the 329 runs needed to beat Somerville but had a reasonable crack, finishing 100 runs short. Ben King top scored for the Blues with 93, before being run out. Jake Hewitt also had a reasonable amount of time at the crease, scoring 35. Russell Wilkes was the best of the Eagles bowlers with 5/63 off 24 overs, while Daniel Kelly and Justin Allsop picked up two wickets each. Boneo did just enough to get the job done against Seaford. Resuming at 5/86, Cameron

Williams (17) and Leigh Janssen (18) made sure Boneo got over the line. Chasing 117 for the win, Boneo snuck to 9/135 in 59 overs. Ryan McQueen was the best of the Seaford bowlers, snaring 3/36. Delacombe Park made very light work of Carrum, winning by almost 100 runs. Defending 218, the Parkers rolled the Lions for just 127. Varun Singh was outstanding with the ball, picking-up 4/23 off 12 overs, while Ben Brittain was at his lightening best, taking 3/11 of 11 overs. Baden Powell went for the outright victory against Ballam Park but fell short. The Braves had to settle for the 12 points after scoring 9/164 in reply to the Knightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 72. In their second dig, Ballam Park finished at 4/154. Jarryd Ward and Matt Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Malley each snared two wickets for the Knights.
