Peninsula Homemaker Centre

Big brands on sale at Bedshed BEDSHED Mornington is celebrating its eighth birthday with the Big Brands Mattress Sale giving customers a great chance to snap up bargains before Christmas. The bedding, mattress and furniture store was an original tenant when the Peninsula Homemaker Centre opened in 2005. Part of the secret is that Bedshed Mornington is an independent, family business run by Alan and his son Elton. Alan, who has more than 40 years’ experience in the bedding and furniture retail industry, said the business employed local staff and had its own delivery service. “We’re in charge of our service; we don’t rely on anyone else,” he said. “We believe in great service, a great product and we go the extra mile.” While the business has all the advantages of a Bedshed franchise, the team retains the freedom to buy the right stock for its clientele. The large Bedshed showroom allows Alan and Elton to keep a huge variety of stock, including

bedroom furniture, mattresses, pillows, quilts and the largest range of bed linen on the peninsula of any bed retailer. Most mattresses are Australian made, with a noteable exception being the premium Tempur series. This beautiful range is made in Denmark and is the world’s biggest-selling mattress brand. Tempur also makes pillows. Bedshed offers immediate delivery throughout the Mornington Peninsula, and regular distribution across Melbourne. With a large storage area at the shop and two warehouses for stock, 90 per cent of the orders can be filled the same week. Alan firmly believes in the Bedshed Mornington return-customer policy: “If you buy here you will always return and buy again.” The store is open seven days a week, with latenight shopping until 9pm every Friday. It is located within the Peninsula Homemaker Centre at the corner of the Nepean Hwy and Bungower Rd, Mornington. Telephone: 5973 6333.

MORE than 7000 speeding tickets have been issued to motorists on Peninsula Link in the 33 days since speed cameras were turned on. Victoria Police data shows an average of 216 speeding offences every day. Of those, 75 drivers had their licences cancelled after being detected travelling more than 30km/h over the speed limit, while five drivers will be prosecuted under anti-hoon laws for going more than 45km/h over the limit. Peninsula Link speed cameras detected 5092 drivers travelling less than 10 km/h over the speed limit, 1528 between 10-15 km/h above the limit, 431 at 15-25 km/h over and 36 fines where drivers were clocked at 25-30 km/h over the limit. While the number of infringements was well down on the 16,000 plus detected during testing a month earlier, police said the results were still â&#x20AC;&#x153;extremely frustratingâ&#x20AC;?. Southern Metro Region commander for road policing Inspector Bryan Sharp said it was disappointing to see motorists ignore the speed limit and put othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives at risk, despite the presence of the cameras. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We gave motorists plenty of warning that the cameras were being activated so it is extremely frustrating to see people speeding and treating this road like a racetrack,â&#x20AC;? he said. Police from Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula have also been told to patrol the freeway to ensure drivers stay within the 100km/h speed limit. Inspector Sharp said drivers needed

to be aware that if they were doing the wrong thing on Peninsula Link they would be caught â&#x20AC;&#x153;whether it is by the cameras or by the policeâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just last Wednesday, a driver was intercepted between Skye and Ballarto roads in Frankston North travelling at 180km/h. The vehicle he was driving had no registration plates and he was found to be disqualified from driving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His car has been impounded and he is now facing some serious charges including speed in a dangerous manner and disqualified driving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a 30 year-old man from Seaford who has shown no regard for anyone else and should not be on our roads.â&#x20AC;? Inspector Sharp said that with more people heading to the Mornington Peninsula for the summer holiday period, drivers needed to remain alert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a timely reminder to everyone heading into the holiday season to take care on our roads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want everyone arriving safely for their holidays; no one wants to be staring at an empty space at the table on Christmas Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Police will be actively targeting those drivers whose driving behaviours put others at risk and we will be enforcing the speed limits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are heading down to the peninsula this festive season, you will see police on the roads and you will see booze buses. Expect to be intercepted and expect to be breath tested. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to see all road users doing the right things to ensure everyone gets to their destinations safely.â&#x20AC;?

Alarm raised over children in hot cars By Chris Brennan POLICE and ambulance officials have sounded the alarm over a rapid rise in the number of reports of babies and young children being locked in cars, with statistics revealing Frankston and peninsula parents are Melbourne’s worst offenders. Ambulance Victoria statistics reveal more than 1100 children were left unattended in cars over the past year. More disturbingly, the majority of them were babies and toddlers. The number of children reported to have been left in cars between September 2012 and the end of August this year was about 20 per cent higher than the previous 12-month period, despite repeated police warnings of potential fatalities. Children aged 13 or younger comprised 87.4 per cent of incidents reported and, of those, 22 per cent were newborns and 6.7 per cent toddlers. Frankston recorded the highest number of incidents in Melbourne, with 25 cases reported, while 12 were recorded in Mornington. Police and emergency officials said it was only a matter of time before lives were lost, especially as temperatures rose over the summer months.

Acting Senior Sergeant Andrew Whitehead of Frankston police said there were “no grey areas” when it came to leaving children in vehicles. “Temperatures rise very quickly inside cars and it only takes minutes before a child’s health is seriously threatened,” he said. “There is never an excuse for leaving a child unattended inside a car, even if parents are just dashing into a shop, they can easily be delayed.” Ambulance Victoria group manager Brett Drummond said children were especially vulnerable to high temperatures inside vehicles. “Tragically there have been cases of children dying in hot cars in Victoria in recent years,” Mr Drummond said. “Babies and young children can’t regulate their body temperature like adults, so being left in a hot car can quickly become life-threatening,” he said. “Some people think they can duck into the shop and leave their child but there’s a risk they will be delayed and it’s a risk not worth taking.” Ambulance Victoria warned that cars can quickly heat up even on mild days. Tests show that a car’s interior can hit 44 degrees within 10 minutes when the outside temperature was 29 degrees.

Prizes for A-Day poster designs THE poster for this year’s Australia Day celebrations on the Mornington Peninsula will be based on artwork by Kartika Wicaksana. The Mt Martha girl won the shire’s Australia Day Poster Competition, a $500 bank account and an iPad 4.

Runners-up Finn Roser, Tyler Steel and Laila Cooke received accounts at Bendigo Bank worth $250. The mayor Cr Antonella Celi said the entries were original “really captured the theme of Australia Day on the peninsula – from enjoying beaches

and parks, to watching fireworks and spending time with friends and family”. Australia Day events and activities will be held in Mornington, Mt Eliza, Hastings, Rosebud, Rye, Sorrento and Dromana.

Unexpected returns from walking the Track By Keith Platt CYCLING, tennis and kayaking can all be part of a normal day’s activities for Ian Stevenson. In August, he realised a long-held ambition – walking the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea and visiting the area where his father fought during the Second World War. Clambering along the 96-kilometre track is not easy, but Mr Stevenson is one of a growing number of people drawn to the site of the 1942 battle that led to the death of 625 Australians. Fit, and no stranger to physical exercise, Mr Stevenson was able to negotiate the no-frills tourist adventure. However, soon after returning to Mornington, he realised he’d brought home more than just memories and photographs. Fever, headache and aching joints stopped him in his tracks. Blood tests revealed he was suffering from chikungunya, an infectious disease believed to have originated in Africa and spread by the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes aegypti). The mosquito has distinctive white markings on its legs, although Mr Stevenson cannot remember seeing or being bitten by one. The bite has given him the dubious distinction of officially being the first Victorian to have caught the mutant virus in PNG. It has also forced him to take a break from a 40-year habit of regularly donating blood. An environmental consultant with the CFA, Mr Stevenson is chairman of the Hastings-based Dolphin Research Institute and executive officer of the Western Port Catchment Committee which operates in conjunction with Mornington Peninsula and Western Port Biosphere Foundation. While back on his bike, swinging a racquet and paddling, Mr Stevenson still wakes up with aching joints and has no idea how long the symptoms will persist. He said guarding against mosquitoes was discussed by members of his Kokoda group, but their efforts focused on “night-time biting pests” when the chikungunya-carrying insect is known as a daytime biter.

The Asian tiger mosquito also carries viruses responsible for Ross River, Barmah Forest and dengue fevers. There are no vaccines for these diseases and doctors can treat symptoms only. “I’m unaware of a specific mossie doing the biting, although one of my fellow trekkers made occasional comments about red marks on his skin,” Mr Stevenson said. “The [chikungunya] symptoms began when I returned home. Fever, lethargy, very sore joints and muscle pain, skin rash and the shakes. “I managed to drive to a doctor who suspected malaria or dengue but both these were negative from blood tests.” The diagnosis of chikungunya was confirmed with another blood test, which then sparked interest from the testing laboratories. “I suspect there may be other infected persons but they haven’t been diagnosed,” he said. “After the first fortnight, the symptoms abated apart from lethargy, sore joints and muscle pain. “This still continues, although the symptoms are progressively abating. I’m on symptom medication for pain relief only and this continues although I’ve tried to give them up.” Mr Stevenson said his own research showed that something like 35 per cent of affected people have symptoms for more than three months and about 12 per cent suffer for more than a year. “Given the similarities to Ross River or Barmah or dengue infections, there are some messages and lessons learned. Using day-time repellent is one key necessity.” Despite the adverse outcomes, Mr Stevenson sees his Kokoda walk as a “fantastic, moving experience”. “The living military history was fascinating and anyone having family or other links to Kokoda or any of the other Second World War battles in the Asia-Pacific area should definitely put it on the bucket list. “But given that summer is approaching, precautionary measures for us all in southern Australia, including the Mornington Peninsula, are advised.”

Hidden danger: Ian Stevenson has found there is more to fear from insects than old explosives when walking the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea.

Lofty lookout: A young powerful owl photographed near Hastings by Mornington Peninsula conservation ranger Josh Gunn.

Owls call peninsula home RESEARCHERS have been surprised by the number of powerful owls on the Mornington Peninsula. A recent survey by the Department of Environment and Primary Industries has shown there are at least six breeding pairs and another 10 individuals, “many more than they expected to find”, Mornington Peninsula Shire’s conservation ranger Josh Gunn said. Two chicks raised by a pair of the large owls were photographed last month near Hastings by Mr Gunn. The pair had one chick last year.

Pellets collected from the breeding site analysed by Hans Brunner, an expert in animal hair identification, revealed the owls’ diet consisted mostly of ringtail and brushtail possums as well as birds and rats. “Powerful owls are listed as endangered in Victoria,” Mr Gunn said. “Although they seem to be in good numbers on the peninsula it is important that we protect their habitat as their role as a top-order predator is very important.” The young owls are downy white on the head and underparts, and have

much shorter tails than their parents. Powerful owls mate for life, which can be 30 years or more, and defend their territory all year. The chicks usually stay with the parents for several months and sometimes remain within their parents' territory for more than a year. They are usually found in open forests and woodlands – especially along watercourses – and sometimes open areas near forests such as farmland, parks and suburban areas as well as in remnant bushland patches.

Emergency upgrade on track

Police brace for schoolies influx

By Chris Brennan FRANKSTON Hospital’s emergency department will be double its current size by the end of next year under redevelopment works now in full swing. Health Minister David Davis gave the $81 million redevelopment project the thumbs-up during an inspection of the site last week. Mr Davis said stage three of the redevelopment, which would add three new wards and 92 hospital beds, was on track to be completed by December 2014. “Once built, the new emergency department will ensure that locals get the clinical support and health services they need, now and in the future,” Mr Davis said. The Napthine government has been under fire in recent weeks over the “gridlocked” state of the health system, with Ambulance Victoria figures showing patients were being forced to wait longer than ever before to be transferred to emergency departments. Frankston Hospital was identified as the worstaffected emergency department, but operator Peninsula Health said it had taken steps to address the problem of patient transfer delays. A Peninsula Health spokesperson said that, despite Frankston Hospital having the highest number of ambulance presentations in the state, it was now achieving better results that most other metropolitan hospitals. “Both Frankston and Rosebud hospitals are now achieving better than average performance in ambulance transfers,” the spokesperson said. “This improvement is due to additional resources as well as changes to the way we use existing resources, such as short-stay beds and fasttrack areas within the emergency department.” Peninsula Health was working “collaboratively” with ambulance paramedics to ensure timely treatment of patients, as well as with Frankston and Mornington Peninsula GPs to ensure people with non-urgent care needs were having their

POLICE have been visiting rental properties on the Mornington Peninsula leased by groups of schoolies to ensure celebrations don’t get out of hand. Southern peninsula police numbers have been bolstered by extra officers from Frankston, Mornington and Hastings to handle the annual influx of schoolies celebrating the end of their secondary school studies. Police were expecting thousands of newly graduated Victorian students to descend on peninsula towns over the past week to join in the notorious annual celebrations. Police community engagement officer Inspector Lisa Hardeman said extra patrols would be deployed across the peninsula in an attempt to minimise alcohol-fuelled violence and other antisocial behaviour. She said police would be taking a proactive approach to the celebrations in an attempt to educate school leavers on the potential risks they faced. “We know celebrating schoolies’ week is something young people look forward to for a long time,” she said. “They’ve studied hard for the past 13 or so years and it’s a great milestone. “Preparation is the key to staying safe. Plan your day and night, and plan a way back to your accommodation. “Ensure you’re always with a group of friends, people you can rely on and people who you know are looking out for you. “And remember, a criminal record stays with you for life and will most certainly affect your career – don’t let a moment of stupidity influence the rest of your life.”

Healthy start: Health Minister David Davis, right, reviews plans for stage three of the Frankston Hospital redevelopment with engineer Wimal Kirinde during an inspection of the worksite last week. The project, due to be completed by the end of next year, will double the size of the emergency deparment, adding three new hospital wards and a further 92 beds. Picture: Yanni

needs met in “more appropriate settings” than the emergency department. Mr Davis said the new, expanded emergency department would greatly improve the hospital’s ability to meet treatment targets. “The hospital redevelopment is among $4.5 billion of infrastructure investment underway at Victorian health services,” he said.

Little yachts bring big 4 WEEKS ONLY bucks to peninsula NOW ON

ACROSS OUR FULL RANGE OF OUTDOOR TILES

OUTDOOR TILES

starting at $19.95m2 INC G.S.T

By Mike Hast MORNINGTON harbour and the nearby waters of Port Phillip will be a sea of little white boats when the best international and Australian junior sailors come to town in early January. It will be the biggest single-class regatta ever held in Australia, and is expected to bring a financial bonanza to the town and wider peninsula. Mornington Yacht Club is hosting the Optimist Australian and Open Championships from 4-11 January. The club won the rights to the event last January, chosen ahead of McCrae and Sorrento yacht clubs. The Optimist sailing dinghy – Opti for short – is one of the fastest-growing and most-popular classes in the world. There are 400,000 Optis and 200,000 sailors worldwide, and it’s not unusual to see 1000 boats at European championships. The small, snub-nosed dinghies are quick, light and manoeuvrable, and are one of the world’s premier training yachts for sailors aged 15.

Commodore Greg Martin said the yacht club was delighted to be selected to host the championships. “We’ll see some of the best junior sailors from Australia and around the world competing for the national title. “It will be one of the biggest sailing events ever held in the southern hemisphere, is likely to attract 2000 visitors to the region and bring up to $400,000 to Mornington and the peninsula.” The club’s training and development manager, Michelle Pickford, said the Optis nationals would attract large crowds and create interest among younger sportspeople. “It’s an exciting time for the club as we won two major awards in 2012 – Victorian yacht club of the year and Australian training centre of the year.” Key sponsor of the regatta is Morningtonbased boat builder Hart Marine. The event is also supported by the state government, Mornington Peninsula Shire and the town’s chamber of commerce. The harbour precinct will have marquees, barbecues and entertainment during the week-long regatta.

Fish finders: Verity Collings and Ian Smith prepare for the Great Victorian Fish Count at Mornington on Saturday. Picture: Gary Sissons

When something fishy becomes a good thing HUNDREDS of divers and snorkellers took the plunge for a good cause on Saturday, the first day of the three-weekend Great Victorian Fish Count. The annual census of reef fish and other marine life started in 2005 and last year more than 350 volunteers from 25 groups throughout Victoria took part. The event surveys and monitors important reef sites, and is run by Victorian National Parks Association’s Reef Watch program in conjunction with Museum Victoria. Fish count locations on the peninsula included Mornington pier, Blairgowrie marina, Rye pier and reefs in southern Port Phillip as well as Point Leo, Flinders pier and Mushroom Reef Marine Sanctuary off Flinders golf course on the Western Port and Bass Strait side of the peninsula. Simon Branigan, VNPA’s marine and coastal project coordinator, said divers would be searching for Victoria’s marine faunal emblem, the weedy seadragon, as well as 180 other

marine species including 25 important reef fish species. “It’s Victoria’s largest marine citizen science event,” he said. “Divers have underwater identification kits and information recorded is provided to marine scientists.” He said Victoria’s marine environment was unique, with more than 85 per cent of species found nowhere else. “Our waters are so rich they rival the Great Barrier Reef for biological diversity, but they face mounting pressures from threats such as overfishing, pollution and invasive species.” Information gathered would give scientists and conservation planners reliable, up-to-date marine data so they could make more informed decisions about protecting Victoria’s marine world. Last year, divers verified the presence of western blue gropers in Port Phillip. For details about how to join the 2013 Great Victorian Fish Count, go to www.vnpa.org.au Mike Hast

Search for missing Anzacs STORIES of the men and women listed on the First World War honour roll in Mornington's Memorial Park will feature in a book to be published for the 100th anniversary of Anzac Day in 2015. It will be published by Mornington and District Historical Society. Leading the project is the society's award-winning researcher Val Wilson, who won a Victorian Community History Award last month for her website on pioneers' graves at Mornington Cemetery. Ms Wilson said she had found the stories of many people on the roll but had "come up against a brick wall" for others. "I'm hoping peninsula residents can help me with more information," she said. Ms Wilson has been scouring archives at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, electoral rolls, newspapers and other sources. The three-panel honour roll with more than 100 names was on the outside wall of the old Mechanics Institute on the corner of Main and Queen streets before being moved to Memorial Park in Barkly St. It contains the names of three women, one of whom Ms Wilson thinks enlisted in the United Kingdom. Val Wilson can be contacted on 5975 2958 or by email: vjwilson@ bigpond.com Also looking for information from the past is Colin Fisher of Mornington Heritage Support Group, which has planted an Avenue of Honour in conjunction with Mornington Peninsula Shire in Mornington Park at the beach end of Main St. Mr Fisher is seeking photos of the town's original avenue of honour, which was on both side of Main St between Vale St and Nepean Highway, planted in 1917-18. "We've looked everywhere but haven't been able to find any photos," he said. "We're hoping someone might be able to produce an image from a dusty shoebox under a bed." Mr Fisher said part of the Anzac Day centenary commemoration would be dedication of the new avenue of honour and bronze plaques containing "information about avenues of honour in general and Mornington's in particular".

Upgrade for safety A DANGEROUS intersection on the Western Port Highway has finally been fixed. The intersection of the highway with Robinsons Rd, Langwarrin, was the scene of 12 casualty crashes – five causing serious injury – before the Transport Accident Commission stepped in to pay for a $16 million upgrade. Hastings MP Neale Burgess said most crashes occurred “as a result of traffic crossing over the Western Port Highway from Robinsons Rd and being hit by through traffic on the highway”. He said changes at the intersection included widening the highway to provide right turn lanes and a left turn lane, median islands in Robinsons Rd, safety barriers and lighting.

By the time it is completed, the government will have spent $15.28m repairing and replacing the pier. Access to the pier will again be restricted when the reconstruction of the outer deck begins in early 2014. Mornington MP David Morris blames delays “the Brumby Government’s mismanagement” for delays in rebuilding the pier. “The next phase will see the complete replace-

ment of the outer section of the pier, including new wave screens to protect the harbour, timber decking, low landings and other important improvements,” Mr Morris said. Mr Hodgett said the contract award was another significant milestone for the Mornington Pier reconstruction which will be completed in late 2014. “This latest contract award is one of the final major milestones in the reconstruction of Mornington Pier, which means that local residents and visitors will soon be able to enjoy the finished product,” Ports Minister David Hodgett said.

Time to decide on aquatic centre By Mike Hast SHIRE councillors will have just five days to read final reports before voting on the biggest capital works project in Mornington Peninsula Shire’s history – the estimated $35 million Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (SPA). SPA will be back on the council’s agenda at its 9 December meeting when councillors will be asked to decide on one of two locations – the foreshore or Rosebud Central shopping centre in Wannaeue Place. They will not receive all information until the Wednesday before the Monday meeting. But there is some doubt SPA will even be on the agenda after one councillor wrote to shire CEO Michael Kennedy last week stating the CEO could be “acting wrongfully” to bring SPA to council while Cr Graham Pittock was awaited a conflict of interest trial and was unable to vote. The foreshore site was removed as preferred location in June after being agreed in March 2012. In September 2012, the shire bought the shopping centre for $5.1 million and an adjacent shop for $770,000 as an alternative SPA site as councillors squabbled privately and publicly over the foreshore location, which was given in-principle approval by Environment Minister Ryan Smith in early 2012, subject to seven reports that have not yet been completed. Buying Wannaeue Place took the heat off councillors prior to the council election in October 2012. The purchase came after geotechnical testing on the foreshore site in July 2012 showed the water table was, as expected, close to the surface

and foundations would add an estimated $7 million to the cost. The push to reinstate the foreshore site has gathered momentum in recent weeks with Rosebud Chamber of Commerce and a loose alliance of Rosebud people called “Save SPA on the Foreshore” erecting signs, posting stickers on shop windows and circulating a flyer and petition. A large sign on the Coleman property at 1a and 1b Jetty Rd, Rosebud (the site of a proposed three-storey residential and commercial building) was erected mid-month before the 9 December meeting became publicly known. Cr David Gibb told The News his colleagues had received briefings about the project in September and had been shown preliminary costings for the two locations. He said if councillors voted for the foreshore site – the carnival land and adjacent Rosebud Memorial Hall – the shire would prepare information for Environment Minister Ryan Smith including detailed design drawings and a revised business case based on the project being expanded in June 2012 from 4800 to 6800 square metres. The News understands at least one councillor thinks the shire should not be building such an expensive project at this time. Others think SPA should be built next to the shire office in Besgrove St near the primary and secondary schools. SPA was first suggested in 1999 when the shire planned to build three aquatic centres – in Hastings (opened in 2003), Rosebud and Mornington.

PRICE REDUCED We think this is the best block in this quality new development at Tyabb but it hasn’t sold, so for the first time our vendor has reduced the price. The most elevated of all the ¾ acre allotments in this fully serviced quality new area, this property overlooks a pleasant lake with the park across the road and is to have a screen fence erected by neighbour to the north. When the original farmer was looking for a site to build a home this is the spot he chose with a quality outlook. Only 3 left in this area.

PRETTY AS A PICTURE Situated opposite pretty park with lake and plenty of bird life we think this ¾ acre property offers the best outlook to the north and south. Situated on high side of the street with all services available (including NBN connection) it is hard to go past this quality allotment. Northerly aspect cannot be built out as Urban Growth Boundary for the whole of Melbourne runs along the boundary. Fenced on 1 side already with screen fencing to be erected by neighbour the shed next door will not be visible once additional side fence has been erected.

‘King’ crowned for best bite SANDWICH King in Hastings has won the top Best Bites 2013 Award. The award recognises the High St cafe’s “excellence in nutrition and healthy eating, tobacco and liquor compliance, waste and recycling, energy and water efficiency and access for all”. Sandwich King was presented with the award at Mornington Peninsula Shire’s awards lunch, hosted by actor and food author Paul Mercurio at the Ranelagh Club, Mt Eliza, on 19 November.

Category award winners were: Nutrition and Healthy Eating, Kafe K2, Mt Eliza; Tobacco and Liquor Compliance, Just Fine Food, Sorrento; Waste and Recycling, Rosebud Plaza Shopping Centre; Energy and Water Efficiency, Harmony Bed and Breakfast, Rye; Access for All, Rye RSL; Overall Award, Sandwich King, Hastings. “It was an honour to host the Best Bites awards and, as a local, it’s

inspiring to see our businesses putting in the hard work and commitment to make the peninsula the great place it is,” Mr Mercurio said. The Best Bites Food Guide 2013 - which lists businesses that have received exceptional Best Bites ratings - was launched at the awards and is now available free from food businesses and online at www.mornpen. vic.gov.au For more information about the Best Bites food program call Peter O’Brien on 5950 1865.

Lions help for sailors Food award: Mornington Peninsula Shire Best Bites awards host Paul Mercurio with overall winners Hilda and Wally Rachid, from Sandwich King, Hastings, and the mayor Antonella Celi.

MEMBERS of Mt Eliza Lions Club have been busy over the past five years putting disabled people into sailing boats. The club has raised $15,000 to help run the Sailability program which two weekends ago was run at Mornington in conjunction with Discover Sailing Day.

Lions club member Norm Minton said the Sailability program “is to educate, assist and teach the disabled about sailing to assist them with daily progress in living with their disability and decline in coordination”. “Sailing is quite therapeutic for them assisting in their daily living in many aspects.”

Funnyman on Western Port mission By Mike Hast SEEING satirist, comedian and actor John Clarke standing in the mangroves of Western Port at Hastings, you naturally enough expect a sardonic comment. Perhaps something about the odour of the mud at low tide. Eau de saltmarsh, anyone? A crack about the seagrass? This would look good in the fish pond. But, no, Clarke is on a mission; something completely different, as the Pythons once said. He is a founding board member of Western Port Seagrass Partnership, an independent trust formed in 2001 to lobby for the protection and restoration of Western Port and its catchment. Why does a 65-year-old New Zealander who came to Australia in 1979 and became a fixture in comedy and satire on television, in films and on stage – including being inducted into the Logies Hall of Fame in 2008 – care about Western Port? “I’ve owned a holiday house on Phillip Island for years,” he told The News, flashing a look southeast from the Hastings foreshore and stepping off the track as a woman with two white dogs jogged past. “I was sitting on the beach years ago and noticed lots of black particles in the usually clear water. “I’m a typical person of my age who doesn’t know much about the environment, so I went out and sought some information.” This lead him to scientists and ecologists, and the “greening” of John Clarke began. “I asked really dumb questions. I didn’t understand things. Nutrient response? What’s that?” Clarke knows a lot more now. He was in Hastings a few weeks ago with seagrass partnership board members to attend a briefing with the Port of Hastings Development Authority, which has been charged by the state government to build a container port that will eventually handle 8-9 million containers a year, almost double the capacity of the Port of Melbourne. The authority at last is beginning to engage with the community after being formed on 1 January 2011 and being given $110 million over four years by Premier Denis Napthine in April. It has held a series of briefings with business, environmental and other special interest groups. It’s forming community consultation groups. Clarke says Western Port is a special place that has been under greater pressure from human development for the past 30 years.

Getting serious: John Clarke on the foreshore at Hastings wearing his Western Port Seagrass Partnership “hat”. On looking after Western Port: “We need the right heads at the planning table to balance the interests of the environment and business.” Picture: Yanni

Increased sediment is one of the principal problems. “Most of it comes from the northern end of the waterway because we drained Koo Wee Rup swamp. “This was a bad idea. It was a huge, 50 miles by 15 miles sponge that filtered runoff before it entered Western Port. It was a work of genius by nature.” Western Port Seagrass Partnership’s objectives include improving natural resource planning, management and research in Western Port. It encourages, guides and sponsors research into seagrass and the broader Western Port ecology “to ensure decision-making is based on sound scientific knowledge”. It aims to “accelerate the implementation of protective and restorative works in the catchment and bay”. Clarke said most scientific research

done in recent decades referred to the Shapiro report. “Very few areas worldwide have had a Shapiro,” he said. This was an early 1970s baywide environmental study commissioned by the Liberal state government when the “Battle for Western Port” grabbed national media attention as industrialists fought a bitter battle with scientists and conservationists over development of the region. Western Port had been earmarked as the site for heavy industry by Premier Henry Bolte in the early 1960s. One plan called for a nuclear reactor on French Island and a causeway to the mainland. The State Electricity Commission bought up large tracts of land on the island and effectively “depopulated” it as farmers sold up and left. BP built a refinery at Crib Point, abandoned in the 1980s. John Lysaght

Pty Ltd built a steel mill near Hastings, now owned by BlueScope Steel and in decline since the closure of its hot strip mill, and Esso built a gas refractionation plant near the steel mill, which still operates and is being refurbished to take oil and gas from the recently opened Kipper field in Bass Strait. The grand experiment to make Western Port the “Ruhr of Victoria”, named after the heavily industrialised city in Germany, foundered when the government lost its appetite and a new appreciation of the environment became mainstream. The Shapiro report, containing the research of many scientists and revealing the unique and sensitive ecology of Western Port, was a key reason why this occurred. “We’re here to raise the profile of seagrass,” Clarke said without a hint

of irony. The seagrass mob aims to promote partnership-based approaches to improve the understanding, protection and restoration of the ecosystems of Western Port and its iconic seagrass communities, a significant proportion of which has been lost. “We need the right heads at the planning table to balance the interests of the environment and business.” Clarke turns away from the shoreline and marches across the foreshore, back toward Hastings’ main street. He’s probably thinking about who he and Bryan Dawe will satirise in their long-running television spot later in the week. “Welcome, Premier Denis Napthine. I see you’ve been on the seagrass. How are you feeling?”

Does God Love This World?

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

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Nasty carriage accident at Bittern station; plea for better crayfishing Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 29 November 1913 AT Bittern railway station a very nasty accident happened to one of the coach horses on Saturday. The animal became frightened at a motor and bolted. It ran into a post, breaking its shoulder and tearing the flesh all across the chest. The animal had to be shot. Fortunately there was no one in the coach at the time of the accident. *** QUITE a pleasing aspect appears at Stony Point at present through the whole of the crafts engaged in the crayfishing industry lying there, the captains being away at Hobart to a conference to try and get the East coast of Tasmania thrown open for pot fishing. At present, the East coast is abounding with crayfish, and what is known as hoop fishing is only allowed. Should this pot fishing pass, we shall be supplied with more fish for our markets. *** A EUCHRE party and dance will be held in the Mechanics’ Institute, Frankston, on Wednesday next, 3rd December, in aid of the uniform fund of the local brass band. *** MESSRS T. R B. Morton and Son will hold a special cattle sale at Bittern on Thursday next, when they will yard, for various owners, milkers, springers, steers and young stock, also horses, vehicles, etc. *** A LANTERN lecture entitled “The Reformation and the Modern Church,” will be given in St. Paul’s

Church, Frankston, on Sunday evening next. *** MESSRS G. Martin and Co. will sell by auction on Saturday, December 6, on the ground at Tyabb, valuable township allotments, on account of Misses W. G. and A. H. Beckett. *** W. A. KORNER will sell by auction on Saturday, December 6th, the Stock. in-trade of a general grocery at Rosebud, consisting of drapery, boots, etc., horses, cart, and cows. The sale will commence at 11 o’clock. *** ON Friday next a concert will be held at Tyabb in aid of the picnic prize fund. A good programme has been arranged, and given fine weather there should be a large attendance. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will sell by auction on Wednesday next on account of Mrs E. M. Baxter, large quantity of surplus furniture, cows, horse, vehicles, implements, poultry, etc. The sale will take place at Cliff House, Davey’s Bay. *** WE regret to have to record the death of Mr P. Tulloch (who had been in the employ of Mr A. Shannon for some time past) which took place some time on Thursday night. He retired to bed at his sister’s residence (where he lived) apparently in good health, but in the morning he was found dead, having apparently died in his sleep. An inquiry will be held, particulars of which will be published in next issue. *** THE anniversary services in connection with the Frankston Methodist

Sunday School were held on Sunday and Monday last, when, notwithstanding the unpropitious weather, the attendance was good. Mr Findley (secretary of Sunday School Union), occupied the pulpit in the morning, afternoon and evening services, and gave interesting addresses, which

Messrs A. Scot and Co. will hold their usual monthly sale at Tanti on Monday next, when a good supply of stock will be forward.

were listened to attentively. On Monday evening, a social was held in the church, which was well attended, and a good programme of songs, recitations, and lantern views was gone through. Rev. Mr Jackson occupied the chair.

*** A BAZAAR to liquidate the debt on the new hall will be held on the 30th and 31st December. The ladies of Dromana are working hard in their determination to make it a success. The Hon. A. Downward, M.L,A., has kindly consented to open the fete. *** A EUCHRE party in connection with the above was held in the hall on Saturday evening, the 22nd inst. There was a moderate attendance, and a very enjoyable evening was spent. Mrs Kidgell and Miss M. Hazledine played off for the lady’s first prize, also Messrs Bowering and Evans for the gent’s, resulting in a win for Mrs Kidgell. Mr W. Gibson secured the “booby” prizes. *** A TOURNAMENT was held on the local golf links on Saturday, the 22nd inst. Owing to the inclemency of the weather, only a few of the members competed. The result of the tournament was as follows:- Ladies, Miss M. Hazledine, 12-59 first, Miss M. Talbot, scr. 62 second; gents, W. Evans, scr. 43 first, J. Boag, 7-47 second. *** THE Children’s Anniversary services in the Frankston Methodist Church will be repeated on Sunday. The preacher, morning and evening, will be Captain Jenkins, of the Lands Department. *** AT the Frankston Court of Petty Sessions, held on Monday last before Messrs Crawford and Baxter, J’s.P., Gustav Grosche was fined 2s 6d in each of three cases for failing to send

his children to school the requisite number of days. Oscar Bailey, for failing to have his child vaccinated, was fined 40s. Two similar cases were adjourned for 14 days. *** A WELL-attended meeting was held in the Crib Point hall on Saturday evening by the Progress Association. The principal item discussed was the sanitary arrangements surrounding the district. Other matters that would not only benefit Crib Point, but the whole peninsula, were also discussed. *** ON Monday night, a meeting of parents met in the hall at the invitation of the school committee to discuss a new site for the school, Mr Russell, the district school inspector, being present to hear the view of the parents. The majority were unanimous that for the present the site used at present was most central. *** ON Wednesday evening, the 19th inst., at a banquet held in connection with the M.U.I.O.O.F., Loyal Somerville Lodge, the popular and energetic secretary, Mr H. Simcock, was made the recipient of a handsome gold medallion for his valuable services during his four years term of office. Noble Grand Rivett, who made the presentation on behalf of the brothers of the lodge, spoke in glowing terms of the trustworthiness and ability of Mr Simcock as a secretary and his popularity, not only with the members, but with the whole community, and it afforded him very great pleasure in making the presentation.

FOOD & ENTERTAINING

The artist formerly known as ‘Erik’ By Stuart McCullough I’D like to think I make an impression on people. I’ve long believed that time spent with me is not soon forgotten and that those whose lives I have entered – if even for a little while – often spend evenings sitting on a porch, reminiscing about all the wonderful things I used to do. For years I drifted along thinking that others held only warm thoughts for me. As it turns out, I was mistaken. I received an invitation to attend a reunion. For a time, I worked in a call centre. It was a job in the public service and, unlike previous jobs that needed only either a hairnet or boots with a steel toe, demanded the wearing of a tie. This was despite the fact that the telephone is and remains a predominantly non-visual medium. I was there for about five months before the whole show was transferred from the State to Commonwealth and I picked up a job in the private sector. Twenty-five years have passed since that tumultuous time. I could only begin to imagine what had happened to most of them but I was certain that they, like me, cherished the time we spent together. The invitation came with a list setting out all the people who had ever worked in the call centre. Out of idle curiosity, I searched for my own name but found no mention of ‘Stuart’. Instead, the list referred to me as ‘Erik McCullough’. Being misremembered is much worse than being overlooked altogether. If your name doesn’t appear at all, you can always comfort yourself

that the person preparing the list never had the divine pleasure of your company or that some catastrophic software malfunction has meant that part of the record has been destroyed. No such solace is available when you turn up as ‘Erik.’ It’s as if my former workmates kind of recall working with me, but not enough to remember my actual name. It does,

however, go some way to explaining why so many of those in the call centre have failed to invite me to birthdays, weddings and bah mitzvahs over the past two decades. When it comes to being misremembered, there are degrees. I could probably handle being confused with a similar sounding name or one that started with the same letter. Had the

list cited ‘Steven’, ‘Scooter’ or even ‘Saddam’ McCullough in place of Stuart, I probably would have taken it on the chin. I would even have worn the nametag entirely without complaint. But ‘Erik’? Please. They couldn’t even make me a conventional ‘Eric’, preferring instead some kind of Nordic mutation. If they’d thought of me as just plain, regular ‘Eric’ I would comforted myself by thinking of all the great Erics of History. There’s ‘Eric the Viking’ and, of course, ‘Wreckless Eric’, to say nothing of Eric Estrada. Better yet, ‘Eric’ is an anagram for ‘rice’, which can only be a good thing. But Nordic ‘Erik’ means nothing. That said, there was (of course) Erik Erikson, the famed psychoanalyst responsible for developing the concept of the ‘identity crisis’. For many, Erik Erikson is regarded as the uber-Erik, as no-one before or since has been more ‘Erik’ than he, much as Gary Garry Beers from INXS is jam-packed full of Gary goodness like no other. What were my long-lost friends trying to tell me? Was getting my name wrong a deliberate reference to Erik Erikson to subtly suggest that I suffer from a split personality? Neither of me thinks so. Rather, I decided that these people with whom I once spent the hours between nine and five, five days a week for about five months nearly twenty years ago were making a none-toosubtle suggestion that I ought to change my name. Looking back over my performance, they may just have a

point. It was my first office job and, at the time, I was exclusively dressed by the Myer Bargain Basement. Part of the job involved sending out information sheets to an expectant public; a task I filled with great enthusiasm. Each day, I would stand at the facsimile machine, dispatching the greatest gift of all – information – across the state. When people rang to say they were yet to receive the fax I’d promised, I would faithfully resend the missing pages. Only after three or four months did I realize that I was faxing everything the wrong way round, ensuring that nothing but blank pages ever arrived at the intended destination. My enthusiasm counted for naught. Then there was the staff Christmas party that was held in the office and each staff member had to take turns in answering the phones. It is now common practice to record such calls for quality purposes. However, it is a matter of great personal relief that this was not the case at the time as I now seriously question the quality of my advice and if I did anything for the caller other than suggest we order pizza it would be nothing short of a Christmas miracle. It was such a long time ago. As each year dissolves more rapidly than the last, it seems to be more and more the case. In the end, I piked and left the reunion to others. I could concoct a reason, but it’s best just to say that I decided to let sleeping Eriks lie. Sometimes the past is already right where it belongs. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Performance JUST as I was coming to terms with the hysteria of the last AC/DC concert in Melbourne, Mushroom Promotions has announced that the Rolling Stones will tour Australia in 2014. Social media went into meltdown. I must admit, my blood pressure skyrocketed at the prospect of seeing the ageing rockers once more. I had a front position at their 2006 concert at the MCG and, as a budding university student with long hair, l witnessed the 1973 concert at Kooyong with the great Madder Lake as support. My wife, Deborah, to this day still confirms that it was the best live concert she had seen in 2006. I am halfway through a book, The Rolling Stones Complete Recording Sessions, written by a self-confessed fan who lists every Stones recording session from 1963-1989. Filled with fascinating information like: Eric Clapton played slide guitar on Brown Sugar; Ronnie Lane and Pete Townsend did backing vocals on Wild Horses, Ry Cooder featured on Honky Tonk Woman, Sarah Dash (Labelle) featured on backing vocals for Mixed Emotions; David Bowie did backing vocals on Its Only Rock’n’Roll and Venetta Fields did backing vocals on Tumbling Dice, just to name a few. Between 1964 and 1975, the Stones produced a body of work that established them as one of popular music’s most important act, keeping them astride the pop charts while retaining rock credibility, and paid the bills for the subsequent 20 years. Sticky Fingers remains one of my favourite albums being the first to be released on their own label featuring the tongue and lips logo and the first to top both the US and UK charts. Brown Sugar is a classic Stones’ song with the irresistible guitar riff, with songs we remember them by like Wild Horses, Bitch and I Got the Blues. Exile on Main Street (1972) will be classified by many rock fans as their favourite, featuring Nicky Hopkins on piano and Bobby Keys on saxophone pumping out songs like Tumbling

Dice, Rocks Off, Shake Your Hips, Let it Loose and Shine a Light. Angie is a favourite for Mrs Turner and, despite many years of speculation on the matter, it’s unlikely that the song Angie is evidence that Mick Jagger was having an affair with David Bowie’s wife Angela. The most eagerly anticipated concert of years and the entertainment opening of the world class Adelaide Oval in 2014 were announced today as rock icons The Rolling Stones confirm their long-awaited return to the stage in Australia with a spectacular show, Saturday March 22, 2014. This special Adelaide show continues the exhilarating celebration of the band’s five decades, with Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Woods bringing their iconic music and ground-breaking stage shows to audiences around the globe. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday 25 November from 9am. Mick Taylor, who was a member of the Rolling Stones from 1969-1974, will be a special guest at the concert. Mick Jagger said: “It’s great to be invited to Adelaide to open the historic Oval... We’re really looking forward to doing this gig, it will be the first time we’ve been to Adelaide in nearly 20 years, so see you there!” Keith Richards said: “Hi everyone down in Adelaide; it’s been a while since we were in your back yard… see you on March 22 when we’ll take over your new stadium and make it our own, look forward to it.” Stay tuned for a possible Melbourne date. Tickets will be available either by visiting www.ticketek.com.au or www.adelaideoval.com.au. Prices will start at $79. Details: www. mushroompromotions.com or www. frontiertouring.com *** DAYDREAM Island will be hosting two music festivals in May 2014.

The festival will feature some classic 60s music. www.peninsulamusicfestival.com.au *** DAINTY Group is proud to announce superstars Lionel Richie and John Farnham will perform in a coheadlining tour across Australia in March 2014, with tickets going on sale on Friday 29 November. Richie and Farnham will perform sets with their own band and singers. Promoter Paul Dainty said: “I am always thrilled when a superstar wants to tour. But when two legends agree to take their magic on the road.” A five-time Grammy winner, Richie is a music icon known for his solo hits as well as a member of the Commodores. He has sold more than 100 million albums and written and recorded chart-topping hits including Hello, All Night Long, Penny Lover, Stuck on You and Dancin’ On The Ceiling. Farnham, a master performer whose classic album Whispering Jack is owned by one in four Australians, has a long-held nickname that still says it all: The Voice. This year, Farnham was voted best Australian singer of all time. The former child star released his first hit, Sadie the Cleaning Lady in 1967. It became Australia’s highestselling, locally made single to that point, with sales in excess of 180,000, while Farnham went on to become a five-time King of Pop winner. He parlayed his teen idol fame into stage

musicals, cabaret, and a stint with the Little River Band, fronting hits like The Other Guy and Playing To Win. Whispering Jack, released in 1987, rebooted Farnham’s career as a headline act. Hits including A Touch of Paradise, Pressure Down and Chain Reaction followed. A 15-time ARIA Award winner, Farnham was named Australian of the Year in 1988, made an Officer of the Order of Australia, in 1996, awarded a Centenary Medal in 2001, and inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2003. Farnham holds the box office record for most number of arena shows by an Australian performer. His 2002 juggernaut tour, which ran the length and breadth of the continent for six months, was one of the highest grossing tours in Australian history. It earned Farnham three gold records. Other top 10 hits included Underneath the Arches, Friday kind of Monday, Jamie, One, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, Comic Conversation, Rock Me Baby, Help, You’re the Voice and my favourite Everything is Out of Season. Farnham holds the box office record for most number of arena shows by an Australian performer. His 2002 juggernaut tour, which ran the length and breadth of the continent for six months, was one of the highest grossing tours in Australian history. John Farnham and Lionel Richie will appear at the Rod Laver Arena, March 16. Tickets on sale November 29. Phone 132 849. www.tickettek.com.au www. daintygroup.com *** NANCY Sinatra, the 73 year old daughter of Frank Sinatra, will release a new album, Shifting Gears, next month featuring 15 never-before released tracks. Sinatra is best known for her 1966 hit These Boots Are Made for Walkin’. Other hits include Sugar Town, Jackson, Lightning’s Girl, Did You Ever? and Summer Wine. ***

obsession, so I’m putting it out there: Stop skiting! Nobody’s listening, or if they appear to be, they know you’re being foolish. Like-minded skites wait patiently for you to finish so they can tell you their own inimitable life story; mostly males. Why display their toughness. This false pride in the look, the walk, the roosters stance, the tatoos sometimes accompanying the swagger? We don’t care if you’re tough fellas, if indeed you are. Pull your heads in, or go see a psychologist, preferably female. As a kid, only butchers and wharfies looked tough. *** READING about the soldier who was kicked out for showing his sexual encounter on Skype brought to mind the underbelly of my five slogging months of national service in the navy in defence of my country. Even way back then, I had an instinct for attaching myself to the right people. I was warned prior to entry never to bend down in the showers? (They kicked the female out and only followed suit with the male because of bad publicity; typical). Anyway, one or two of the evil members of my group would note those who had not appeared in the showers for a day or two and when they did, on the pretext of cleanliness, they would have the nugget shoe polish at the ready.

Eventually, almost everyone copped it you know where, up to two weeks before discharge when some pathetic resentful skulking boy I had beaten at swimming convinced them I needed a turn. Four of the mean bastards failed to apply the nugget in a close tussle. Cat and lots of mice. *** CRICKET Australia and James Sutherland have done a fine job in ruining our Summer sport the past three years so we look to the test series against England as a light on a very dark horizon. Half a chance at the Gabba, unbeaten the past 25 years, but at best only part salvation. The Ryobi Cup, India, the Big Bash League slog, all designed to make money and confuse us. Our newspapers, in desperation, have taken to reporting all the football trade period goings on, which is as interesting as as burnt hard boiled egg. The Age allows former cricket great Dean Jones to write in a bid to encourage us. Sadly, Jones writes rubbish; thankfully not so Greg Baum and Anson Cameron. One thing stays the same: those NSW mongrels still beat us in the shield matches. *** FROM the executive director of Quit Victoria: “Recent independent research found plain package cigarettes with larger graphic health warnings increased smokers urgency to quit and

lowered their appeal to smoking”. As it happens, I’ve just collated the results of my recent independant research in the DSA of the Rye RSL, where some 95 per cent took little or no notice of said graphics. *** MY old mate Kevvy has called it quits. A job well done. True, he went off the rails when stabbed by Julia, Wayne and Billy’s mob and caused my kick severe damage with his cigarette price increases, but the balance falls far in his favour. Biggest pension increase, steering us through the GFC, gaining respect in our foreign affairs dealings (lately in tatters) and particularly ignoring the ALP factional groupings. Done in by his own and climate change policies. Nicola will be happy. Now it’s bland Bill up against the three stooges at the Colosseum with no Russell Crowe in sight. Men are partial and passionate, merciless, covetous, corrupt, subject to love, hate, fear and favour. Take away the prize, and who chooses virtue for its own sake? Shudder. *** DARLING Rita Panahi (Herald-Sun) calls those protesting against the east-west link a gang of unionists, unwashed hippies, greenies, confused pensioners, socialists and progresshating layabouts.

PINK Floyd’s Roger Waters is recording his first new rock album in over two decades. The bass player is back in the studio and has almost finished a demo of a new record. Although the 70 year old released an opera album in 2005, this is his first rock project since Amused to Death (1992). *** OZZY Osbourne and his Black Sabbath bandmates have extended their reunion tour in 2014. They were expected to bow out after a final hometown show in Birmingham, England on December 22 but due to the success of their latest album and tour, have decided to tour North America and Europe as well, with dates in New York and Brooklyn in March. *** ROBBIE Williams is set to release a brand-new album Swings Both Ways (EMI). The album features a brilliant selection of classic songs including Dream A Little Dream (with Lily Allen), I Wanna Be Like You (with Olly Murs) and Little Green Apples (with Kelly Clarkson). Brand new tracks include Soda Pop (with Michael Buble) and Swings Both Ways, written and performed with Rufus Wainwright. The album sees Williams reunite with Guy Chambers, with whom he wrote six new songs. Guy Chambers produced the album. Williams’ previous swing album, Swing When You’re Winning, was released in 2001 and spent six consecutive weeks at the top of the UK chart, going seven-times platinum. It remains Williams’ bestselling album ever. Details: www.robbiewilliams.com

A Grain of Salt AMANDA Gordon, senior clinical psychologist with Armchair Psychology Practice says: “Some people put an enormous emotional investment in a particular place and fall in love with it before they’ve been able to buy it ... they imagine themselves living there and put off other things as a result. “Then, when they fail to buy it, they are disappointed, distressed, and can despair that they are ever going to get anything. The depression can be akin to being left at the alter.” A losing bidder at a house auction? Maybe, Amanda. Akin to those thousands in the Philippines who lost their homes in Typhoon Hayian recently? I can’t help but wonder as to Amanda’s thoughts on Beyondblue chairman, media personality Jeff Kennett, a gentleman engaged in national depression initiatives and seemingly a contributing cause of our three-monthly source of depression (mood disturbances) when the electricity bill arrives. Psychologists? Give me a break! *** SKITE, as in ego, an overflowing concept of self. I’ve never had much to skite about, not that it caused me grief, although I have noticed occasionally skiting about something I had no right to. I’d pull my head in or tell myself not to do it again. It appears to have become a natural

By Cliff Ellen never replace our hero, comedian par excellence Andrew Bolt. You might like to check Denis Napthine’s latest approval rating. *** I WONDER about Annabel Crabb, waffling on the back page of The Sunday Age weekly and recently as a temporary replacement for Leigh Sales on the ABC’s 7.30. Who does the lady know? ... Carlton and North Melbourne finishing higher on the AFL ladder than Buckley’s “clean cut” boys season 2014? Sadly, almost a certainty?... Treasurer’s tax gift:120,000 winners (HeraldSun), no mention of the two million losers?...I worry when we will have a whole day with no Denis Napthine sighting and shudder when Joe Hockey begins a reply with “The fact is” the National Commission of Audit? Very funny.... Warmer weather and short shorts, the anticipation thereof: “A thing of beauty is a joy forever, its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness” [Keats]; hopefully... hooroo. www.ello8.com

MORNINGTON NEWS

scoreboard

Doggies serve it up to the Kangas PROVINCIAL By IT Gully MORNINGTON proved that its opponent on Saturday needs to do a lot of improving if it is to mix it with the big boys of the Provincial competition. Langwarrin went into the match against the Doggies as one of three undefeated sides of the competition. Sorrento and Mornington were the other two. The new kids on the block had impressive victories in the first four rounds against the reigning premier Peninsula Old Boys and Mt Eliza, however, the big test was always going to be the next three matches. The Kangas face the Doggies in this match, before hosting Sorrento in the following match and Baxter after that. All of these sides, along with Langy, share the top four places on the ladder. On Saturday, Langwarrin’s top order failed again. The Kangas have some real concerns at the moment with skipper Mark Cooper, who has scored just 102 runs in five matches, while

number three David Ross is also out of form, failing to score 100 runs this season to date. Other than a century in round two, Andy Johnson has scored just 58 runs in his other four matches. Once again, it was Danny Weare who top scored for the visitors with 44, while Michael Edwards and Mal Coutts scored 27 and 25 respectively. The day belonged to the home side and weren’t they impressive! Matt Foon and Luke Popov were electric in their opening spells and at one stage had the Kangas reeling at 4/38. Foon finished with 4/36 from 17 overs and Popov claimed 4/28 from 16 overs. They were dominant and enjoyed making a real statement to the Kangas. In reply, the Doggies are cruising at 1/93, Anthony Gapes on 36 and Ben Clements unbeaten on 43. This will be a very comfortable victory for the Dogs. Mt Eliza has placed itself in a very strong position against Sorrento. Bowling first, the Mounties dismissed Sorrento for just 174, Sam

Creffield the pick of the bowlers with 4/35, while Tommy Baron also helped himself to figures of 4/47. Leigh Poholke was the best of the Sorrento batsmen, stranded not out on 87, while Nick Jewell contributed 31. Long Island will be looking forward to a strong victory against Moorooduc this Saturday after posting a massive 5/409 on day one of their clash. Paul Hartle was at his magical best with 107, while opening partner Aaron Paxton got amongst the runs also with 66. The pair put-on 122 in their opening partnership. Peter Connell then came in at three and contributed 48, before Justin Bridgemen smacked 76 and Scott Phillips 65. Suffice to say it was a pretty good day for the Islanders with

the bat. Bobby Wilson with two wickets was the pick of the Ducs’ bowlers. Crib Point is just three runs away from getting the job done against Mt Martha. The Magpies bowled first and rolled the home side for 118, Brad Davidson the destroyer with 4/18 and Luke Herrington continuing his great season with 3/27. Corey Harris top scored for Mt Martha with 30. Whilst not setting the world on fire with the bat, the Magpies are 5/116 overnight, a boundary away from victory. Luke Chapple and Henry Dolphin top scored for the Pies with 30. Baxter and Peninsula Old Boys have had some wonderful battles in

recent years and this game looks as though it could go down to the wire also. Baxter batted first at Peninsula School on Saturday and made 223. Rye performed beautifully with the ball against Heatherhill on Saturday and placed itself in a great position after bowling out the visitors for just 125. However, its batsmen failed again and overnight the Demons are in some trouble at 3/45. Kristian Miller top scored for the Hills with 35, while Leigh Lambert was the best of the Demons bowlers with 4/42. Andrew Dunn and Darren Groves each picked-up 2/16. Groves and Simon Jones are the not out bastmen for the Demons.

Boneo has a battle ahead DISTRICT By IT Gully SEAFORD Tigers have placed themselves in a strong position to get the 12 points against Boneo in Round Five of District cricket. Batting first on Saturday at Boneo, Seaford Tigers batted their allotted 80 overs, finishing at 8/294. Once again it was Corey Hand who took control out in the middle, hitting 72, while he received outstanding support from Ash Mills with an unbeaten 69. David James was also solid for the Tigers with 46. The top order of Boneo is going to have to shine this week if they are to get anywhere near the total. The match between Flinders and Baden Powell is evenly posied, despite the fact that the Braves bowled out the home side for just 122. Flinders batted first on their home deck but was dominated by the Braves’ bowling attack, led by Nathan Rice, who snared 3/17. Rice has been terrific for the Braves this season and now has 17 wickets for the season. Anjula Perera bowled 16 overs and finished with 2/19, including seven maidens, while Julien Pharaoh also snared a couple of wickets. Louis Gillies was the best of the Flinders batsmen with 37, while Jack Halstead opened with 22 and Rob Clements also contributed 22. Despite doing the job with the ball, the Braves couldn’t step up to the plate with the bat. At stumps, the visitors were 3/38, Elias Carter and Perera back in the sheds. Matty Burns picked up 2/23 and

Tom Clements took the wicket of Carter. Not surprisingly, Delacombe Park is in a comfortable position against Ballam Park. The Knights batted first and were rolled by the Parkers for just 97. Shane Deal was at his best with 4/8, while Virun Singh and Chris Brittain each claimed three wickets. In reply, the Parkers are 1/44. Pines appears to be in the box seat against Seaford. The neighbors went toe to toe at Eric Bell Reserve on Saturday and the Piners were able to score 266. Seaford skipper Damien Lawrence bowled almost 30 overs and finished with 6/106. He now has 19 wickets for the season, along with 174 runs. Geoff Smith opened the bowling for Seaford and from his 11 overs, finished with figures of 2/22. Somerville appears to have the upper hand against Main Ridge, despite being bowled out for 189. On the small Main Ridge ground, a score less than 200 looked short. However, the Eagles’ bowlers stepped up to the plate and had the Ridge 3/22 at stumps. Jack Kennedy was the destroyer with 3/10. For the Eagles, Andrew West top scored with 47, while Jack Barbour scored 26 and Keith Burdett 25. Jordan McCully was fantastic with the ball for the Ridge, picking up 5/52 from 16 overs. Scott Millar was rewarded with 3/80 after his 35 overs. The match between Hastings and Carrum will be a limited overs affair this Saturday after rain affected day one.

Skye opens up against Frankston YCW while the sky opens up to limit play SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully RAIN was the only winner in Round Five of Sub District cricket. Of the five matches scheduled on Saturday, only three got starts. The match between Tyabb and Red Hill and Carrum Downs v Dromana will be played this weekend as one-dayers. There was plenty of cricket played at Pearcedale, where the home side batted first and made 9/203. Kaine Smith did what he so often does and that is lead from the front, finishing unbeaten on 37, while Chris Dew made 33,

Shayne Gillings 31 and Brad Trotter 26. Patrick Nagle continued his outstanding beginning to his First XI career with 3/28 from 16 overs. He bowled eight maidens. Darren Kerr found himelf opening the bowling and finished with 3/79, while teenager James Magee picked up 2/40 from 16 overs in his first senior game. Skye batted first against Frankston YCW and made 208 runs from its 76 overs. Skipper Leigh Smith was the best of the batsmen, scoring 84, while Paul Fillipone was terrific support with 43. Luke Hutchison wound back the clock for YCW, claiming six wickets, while the evergreen Paul Bradley and Andrew Kitson

Tigers champ in tough battle 2013 Dromana premiership Player Adam Hunter has had some hard and tough battles on the football field. However, he and his family now face their biggest challenge. ‘Huntsy’, the star of MPNFL football for the past 10 years, is battling bowel cancer. The Dromana Football Netball Club, members, supporters and the local community are coming together to support Adam and help raise money for bowel cancer research. The club would like to hear from anyone who may have items to auction on the night. Bowel Cancer Fundraising and Auction night Date: Saturday 14th December 2013 from 7pm Venue: Tonic Gym – 50 Collins Road, Dromana Tickets: $10.00 per person (tables of 8) Drinks at Bar Prices, BYO Nibbles For bookings contact Lauren on 0419 132 306 or email lauren.wilson36@gmail.com To make a donation contact Jon 0418 552 211 or email phoneco@bigpond.com *** In other footy news, there is word that former Somerville big man Glenn Boyd has signed at Crib Point. - Rosebud has signed quick and hard midfielder Dan Hickey from Sorrento. - Sorrento flew a couple of Tasmanians over recently for an interview. - Rye has signed four players from De La Salle, including Seb Gotch, th sone on former Saint and Lion in the VFL, Brad. Jay Bruco also joins them from St Pauls. - Karingal has replaced many of their losses with four signings from Noble Park. Chris Hay looks likely to stay after being sounded out by at least two other clubs. - The interesting one is former Frankston YCW and Hastings big man Andy Kiely. He has told Rosebud, Red Hill and Langwarrin ‘no thanks’ and isn’t staying at Hastings. However, he won’t say where he is playing next season. Our guess is Dromana or Rye.

snared one each. The Stonecats had to face the last four overs of the day and things didn’t go well, losing opener Jason Tucker for five and Peter Wilkins for eight. Wilkins has just 74 runs this season for the Stonecats in five innings with a highest score of 30. Both Jason and Rob Bedford were elevated from the Second XI for this clash. Tootgarook looks likely to get the points against Balnarring after bowling them out for 88 on Saturday. James Wisken, batting at nine, was the top scoring for the home side with 21. In reply, Tootgarook is crusing at 0/48 after facing 12 overs.

Top global furniture brand arrives KUKA Home has arrived in Mornington. Kuka is the third-largest upholstery manufacturer in the world and manufacturerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leather and fabric lounge suites, beds, dining chairs, occasional chairs, ottomans and accent chairs. The Kuka product is exported to Europe, America, UK, Middle East, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. In the Australian market, we supply products branded with both the Kuka logo to the gallery stores, as well as nonbranded products on an exclusive basis. The Kuka gallery concept was established in 2011, and the idea was put into practice due to the enormous amount of interest shown by Australian retailers for the image of both the product and the store. The decision was made to pursue the Kuka Gallery business as opposed to offering the product to the likes of Harvey Norman and other groups. The idea of establishing a network of buyers operating in a co-operative manner to build the brand and distribution network in the Australian market was most appealing to me. Today, there are more than 20 stores nationally and we are aiming for 50. Our product range is broad and covers different market segments, from contemporary to traditional recliner suites. The Kuka product is positioned at the middle to low-upper end of the market. Kuka Mornington is located at ShopA4 Peninsula Homemaker Centre, corner Nepean Highway and Bungower Road, Mornington.
