Save our manufacturers By Mike Hast MORNINGTON boat builder Mal Hart says governments must do more to protect Australian manufacturing. His comments came after a visit to his factory last Wednesday by Opposition leader Tony Abbott and federal MP Bruce Billson, whose electorate stretches from Seaford to Mt Martha. Mr Abbott was at Hart Marine as part of his national anticarbon tax roadshow. The visit was arranged by Mr Billson, who has known Mr Hart for some years, and drew journalists and photographers from the three peninsula papers as well as crews from three TV stations. The Opposition leader fielded questions about border protection, federal treasurer Wayne Swan, the planned east-west freeway link in Melbourne and foreign investment. But he was in Mornington to continue his criticism of the federal government’s carbon price, introduced in July to force big polluters to change the way they do business. Mr Abbott has had great success with his mantra of a “great big new tax on everything�, but the government has failed to sell the message that setting a price on carbon will encourage the creation of renewable sources of energy, reduce energy consumption, and improve energy efficiency. Hart Marine is a world leader in building pilot boats based on a French design. It has built the distinctive wave-cutting boats for Port Phillip Sea Pilots, the Port of Albany in WA and is about to start two for a company involved in the Gorgon gas project. Mr Hart was happy to lend his support to Mr Abbott’s anti-tax roadshow, but conceded the high Australian dollar had made it hard for manufacturers in recent times. “It has made manufacturers become uncompetitive very quickly.� “My concern is that manufacturers in this country need to be looked after,� he told The News from Perth on Monday night. “We don’t need a carbon tax or high payroll tax or the other bits and pieces that affect our competitiveness.� There was not much that could be done about the high dollar, but “we can do something about the carbon tax, mining tax and payroll tax�. Manufacturing was fundamental to Australia remaining one of the great countries of the world, he said. Hart Marine had been successful “because we want the business and we’ve managed to keep costs and overheads down�. He said the company had invested heavily in technology to build pilot boats and would need to construct 10 before getting a return on investment. The company has three on the water, two on its order books and has fielded inquiries from the United States, Argentina and India. “Port Phillip Sea Pilots could have bought their boats overseas, but chose to support Australian business. Now we want the government to do the same,� he said. Mr Hart said the effect of the carbon tax on his business had not yet been quantified. Hart Marine employs 30 people at its Yuilles Rd factory as well as 50-60 indirectly.

Farewell for youth ‘champion’ FRIENDS and supporters gathered at Hickinbotham winery in Dromana to farewell Russell Ardley who resigned in June from Mornington Peninsula Youth Enterprises. Mr Ardley founded MPYE nearly two decades ago, and since then has helped many at-risk young people successfully make their way into mainstream society. Dunkley MP Bruce Billson described Mr Ardley as “a wonderful man whose commitment and compassion has helped countless people recover lost lives and young people at risk of falling between the cracks”. Mr Ardley is a former Mornington Peninsula Shire citizen of the year. “Russell was personally touched by the harsh reality that for some of our young people find them in the grips or at risk of substance use, alcohol abuse, anger and mental health issues or at war with the law, themselves and those around them,” Mr Billson said during the farewell on Saturday 28 July. “Russell recognised that to get people back on track, they needed time to find peace with themselves, support without judgement, a guiding hand and an ally who would stay the course and help carve out pathways to a more positive and productive life.” Mr Billson said Mr Ardley’s “vision” had made MPYE “a place where a community came together to offer its best to help its own most in need”. Mr Ardley had “displayed an incredible resourcefulness to find a way of maintaining support in the face of very modest funding”. “Above all, when others had given

up, Russell was there,” Mr Billson said. “Always selfless, giving fully of his time and generously of his own funds for so many years, Russell carried MPYE and the dozens of young people on his shoulders with a compassion and commitment that was infectious. “He has help nurture productive citizens out of dozens of young people who had gone off the rails and were

beyond the reach of other recovery services. He has given broken loved ones back in better shape to their families and with a positive outlook on future life prospects; he has helped to green the peninsula with native plant propagation that supported revegetation programs; and he enabled the many MYPE volunteers to be their best selves through the help they were able

to provide others in need.” Mr Billson said every few years he was allocated a flag to be flown in the House of Representatives. “I have presented one to honour veterans’ service, one to Dame Elisabeth Murdoch on the occasion of her 100th birthday and one to Russell Ardley for his outstanding community service, commitment and compassion in creating and sustaining MPYE.”

Inducted: Toorak College principal Helen Carmody, second from right, at her induction service with Jordyn Exner, Megan Roff, Elizabeth Chernov, Victorian Governor Alex Chernov and Jana Howden.

Service to induct Toorak head VICTORIAN Governor Alex Chernov and his wife Elizabeth were at Toorak College, Mt Eliza, for the official induction of new principal Helen Carmody. Mrs Carmody is the school’s 15th principal and follows the four-year tenure of Noel Thomas who resigned in mid-2011, five months before his contract ended. Mrs Carmody’s appointment “marks the start of an exciting new chapter for Toorak College, its staff, pupils, parents and local community”, a school news release stated. At the induction service, Mrs Carmody spoke about her past experiences and her previous position as head of learning and teaching at Sydney’s Kambala Girl’s School. Mrs Carmody said she was a “firm believer in the maxim healthy body, healthy mind, and here at Toorak College we invest in developing wellround young women who thrive in all

aspects of life, from academia, through to sport and community spirit”. “Toorak College instils in young women the value of being a positive thinker, by filling their lives with meaningful participation and the right attitude,” Mrs Carmody said. “I hope to lead by example and show these women that anything is possible if you are true to yourself and set your sights firmly on a goal.” Mrs Carmody said she envisaged turning Toorak “from a great school into an even greater one” and seeing an increase in the “prestige” associated with being a Toorak College old girl increase. In May, Mrs Carmody outlined a process of “re-imagining” and developing “our vision for the future”. “This vision will become a conscious and ongoing initiative that aims to predict and meet the challenges facing our children now and in the coming decades.”

When announcing his resignation in July last year, Mr Thomas told staff that he became principal in 2007 “under unusual circumstances”. “No position was advertised. We were still in the midst of merger negotiations with The Peninsula School,” said Mr Thomas who had been with the school for more than 25 years. “Although it was not widely known at the time, I agreed to take the position on until the end of 2008, not sure whether it would morph into something else like campus head – or simply disappear. Everything about Toorak College in those days felt uncertain to me. “As we know, the merger didn’t happen. We remained a proud independent community and we made plans. “I was privileged to be invited by the board to stay on until the end of 2011 so that their vision and the planning we then had underway could come to fruition.”

Revival...What Does This Mean?

When something or someone is revived they come back to life or receive a fresh inspiration, vision, purpose, or revelation They find what they had lost & are conscious of what really matters . We as society are desperate for a moral revival, a revival of love, care & humility. A revival that brings an understanding, a revelation, a deep conviction of the state this world & society is in. Oh sure some like to brag... “I’m living life to it’s fullest & we have never been so well off.” Yet truthfully most who brag such are selfish & proud, & although maybe set financially in this world, spiritually they are wretched, blind & poor. On the outside many people seem to “have it all together”, but within they are lonely, fearful, guilty & sad! Why is this?....I believe it is because we have stopped honouring the very giver of life, the creator of life itself, our father who is in heaven & His son Jesus Christ. We have offended His Holy Spirit & to our own detriment have wondered of & are like sheep without a shepherd, or like the prodical son that thinks he knows it all, & better than his father, so goes into the world to “have a goodtime & live it up”. Yet when he lost it all it brought him to his senses to understand that all was just plastic, pretence & shallow. Do we really need calamity & heartache in our lives to wake us up & bring us back to basics...back to God? I’m not talking about religion here, but rather a real, powerful encounter on a personal level with God almighty. He is a God who dearly loves us & desires to gather us in His arms & pour out all His indescribable love & peace into our lives. We deceive yourself thinking we can find it elsewhere. God has made clear in His word that broad is the road that leads to destruction & many follow it, but straight & narrow is the road that leads to eternal life & few find it... Are you on the right road? Isn’t it time?

Do You Need a MIRACLE? God is healing ...body, soul & spirit.

Clean Ocean heads for the exit By Keith Platt THE Clean Ocean Foundation is about to close after nearly 12 years leading the charge against ocean sewage outfalls. It is understood that members of the foundation’s committee met on Friday 13 July and voted to wind-up the organisation. Its CEO for the past two years, James Clark-Kennedy, was sent a letter the following day saying his services were no longer needed. The decision sparked a flurry of acrimonious emails between Mr ClarkKennedy and Clean Ocean’s founder and president Peter Smith and secretary/treasurer Andrew Tiller. The foundation has about $40,000 in the bank, which will be handed to another organisation listed on the National Register of Environmental Organisations. Preferably one with similar ideals. Few of the foundation’s 350-plus members have been told about the decision to cease operations. The foundation was formed to stop the daily discharge of about 300 million litres of partially treated sewerage at Gunnamatta. Since having a yet-to-completed victory at Gunnamatta – partially treated water from the Mt Martha treatment plant is still being discharged – the foundation had turned its attention to Australia’s other 144 ocean and estuary sewage outfalls. The foundation’s website says the outfalls “daily dump a toxic cocktail of more than three billion litres of semi-treated domestic, industrial,

trade and abattoir waste onto or near the shoreline”. Clean Ocean was instrumental last year in establishing a branch in Sydney and another on Bass Coast, which is monitoring pollution from the unfinished desal plant near Wonthaggi. The foundation’s website makes no mention of the decision to stop campaigning and no changes have been made to the names or status of com-

mittee members or staff, including Mr Clark-Kennedy. Committee member Jon Wilson, head of Clean Ocean sponsor Balin, said the foundation “had kind of come to the end of its agenda – the Gunnamatta outfall”. He said Melbourne Water’s efforts to purify wastewater at its Eastern Treatment Plant at Bangholme near Carrum before discharging it at Gunnamatta

meant that “the end game is in sight”. “It’s really a handover rather than a shutdown,” Mr Wilson said. “The decision now is to look for another body to hand over our constitution and money. “The money can’t go to individuals, but it is our plan to close it down.” Mr Wilson said Mr Smith, who could not be contacted by The News, was “talking to a few people” about a handover. Mr Wilson said Clean Ocean “does exist at the moment” and felt Mr Clark-Kennedy had been “indiscreet” by going public about the committee’s decision to close the foundation. Mr Clark-Kennedy has raised questions about the probity of the committee’s decision, laying much of the blame on “egos and personalities”. He told The News he did not want to enter into a public slanging match through the newspaper, but believed Clean Ocean Foundation members with young families who enjoyed days at the beach “should have been given

the opportunity to carry on the fight”. He said the Baillieu government was yet to make good its election promise to close Gunnamatta outfall and he saw the foundation’s mission statement as the basis for a much wider role than just what was happening on the Mornington Peninsula. Some years before his appointment as Clean Ocean CEO, Mr ClarkKennedy had closely followed the foundation’s campaigns while working as a journalist for the now-defunct Mornington and Southern Peninsula Mail. His writings under the banner “The Pipe” helped lift the foundation’s profile, effectiveness and popularity. Since becoming CEO he had gained a high media profile and was sought by various media for comments on water quality in Port Phillip and other issues affecting ocean sewage outfalls and wastewater. Melbourne Water’s upgrade of ETP is due to be completed next year.

Corker planning ideas topped by underground train THE shire council has been holding Plan Peninsula Conversations the length and breadth of our beloved peninsula. Ideas from hundreds of residents will go into a shire document to be sent to the state government, which has promised to prepare a “planning statement” specific to the peninsula. It is claimed this will guide the future development of the peninsula over the next 30 years. Emu has attended a few of the 15 town meetings and has been fascinated by some of the ideas:  Airships and hovercrafts for commercial deliveries.  Meditation and yoga sessions to provide artists with inspiration.  Cruise ships docking at Crib Point and Hastings to boost tourism.  An underground railway between Frankston and Rosebud.  Tourist tax toll gates on all entry roads to the peninsula.  Secede from Victoria and create our own sovereign state.

If at first you don’t secede...

THE last idea reminded Emu of a major stir in Mt Martha in 1964 (some Emus have long memories). The Shire of Mornington had proposed doubling in size the camping and caravan park beside Balcombe Creek (now long gone) and Mt Martha’s citizens were revolting. The acronym NIMBY had not yet been invented, but many locals had long been unhappy about the campers having the best spot by the creek. Led by a bloke named Frank Galbally, the Mt Martha Citizens’ League threatened to secede from the shire. Galbally was making a name as a criminal defence lawyer and was a formidable foe. (When he died in 2005, a day short of his 83rd birthday, many obituaries described him as Australia’s greatest defender of crims.) At a public meeting on a Friday night in January 1964, Galbally and other league members railed against the plan and said they would petition the Governor-in-Council for the severance of Mt Martha Riding (now called ward) from the shire. To their credit, most shire councillors attended the meeting. (Emu bets they didn’t linger in the car park after the fiery gathering.) More pressure fell on the councillors when they opened up The Age the following Monday. There on page 7 was a story about the threat to secede. Galbally had been on the phone to The Age on Sunday night. “If Mornington shire council goes

ahead with a plan to increase campers at Mt Martha, ... residents will petition for severance from the shire. Mr Frank Galbally, spokesman for the Mt Martha Citizens’ League, said this last night. Mr Galbally described himself as a resident and ratepayer of Mt Martha,” the newspaper story stated. “He said the Citizens’ League had nothing against campers, but because less than one quarter of the beach line was accessible to the public, the area could not comfortably accommodate any more than the residents, existing campers and day trippers.” The shire buckled and dumped the plan, but it was many years before the camping ground was closed. A mate of the Emu delivered ice to the campers for their iceboxes in the early 1970s. Nothing fancy like electricity in those days. The area is now public reserve with the creek estuary boardwalk running through it. Emu can’t help but think residents had more influence over their council in 1964 than in 2012, although having a QC on your side was a big help.

Send ’em your carwash invoices EMU has received correspondence from “Irate” of Moorooduc and “Annoyed” of Hastings. They are complaining about the state of some roads either side of the underconstruction Peninsula Link freeway between Frankston and Mt Martha. “Irate” wrote: “Avoid Bentons and Loders roads in Moorooduc as dozens of B-doubles are carting dirt from the freeway site off Cranbourne Rd near Karingal shopping centre to Moorooduc. Bentons Rd was a big mess the other day. Some [expletive deleted] in a water truck was trying to wash clay off the road left by the trucks, but just made it worse.” Irate reckons he’s going to send the freeway builder an invoice every week for cleaning his car. Good luck with that. “Annoyed” of Hastings says the same thing is happening on Cranbourne Rd. “It’s a mess between Karingal shopping centre and McClelland Dve. My new car looks like it’s just come back from the Dakar rally.” Annoyed said the B-doubles are doing multiple trips each day going north on Moorooduc Highway, then turning into Sages Rd, along Baxter-Tooradin

Double me up: Dozens of B-double trucks are carrying soil and clay from Frankston to Moorooduc. Picture: Yanni

Rd, McClelland Dve and Cranbourne Rd to the excavation site. Dirt is loaded into the trucks before they head west along Cranbourne Rd, left into Moorooduc Highway and back down to Bentons Rd. C’mon fellas, it’s called progress. Emu is sure the freeway builder will fix all the local roads after the freeway is completed. And then you’ll be able to cruise along the freeway between Carrum Downs and Mt Martha in just 17 minutes. But remember to set your cruise control to 99km/h as the state government allocated almost $10 million in the recent budget for fixed speed cameras on the spanking new freeway.

Can I paw you some roo?

NATIVE wildlife protection groups have long been angry about people eating kangaroo, wallaby and emu. Guess where Emu stands on this? A Fitzroy restaurant has started serving wallaby tartare and native-spiced kangaroo loin. The wallaby is described thus: “A brilliantly flavoursome mound of finely sliced marsupial, served with crisp breads.” Errk. Luckily there’s no emu

on the menu. So Emu is thinking about starting a restaurant. Some of the dishes could include: Fricassee of parliamentarian – juicy legs of young MPs cooked in a rich red wine sauce and served on a bed of shredded hopes and dreams. Hot pot of unionist – gnarled pieces of union officials slow cooked till tender and served with potatoes rescued from Tasmanian farms contracted to supply fast-food giants. Premier paté – specially seasoned goose liver from animals that expect new governments to adhere to their promises. Very popular in the parliamentary dining room. Cutlet of glazed ratepayer – served with tasty a’pathy sauce, cooked as slowly as possible over four years, to be served prior to elections. Finish with dessert of half-baked and prohibitively rich entrepreneurial compote. Finger food – carefully prepared and specially selected fingers gathered from ratepayers who don’t let go of their rates payments before the steel shutter slams shut.

Bali high

EMUS, having few toes and no fingers, were innumerate until the invention of

calculators. Then we went ahead in leaps and bounds – huge, Emu-sized leaps and bounds. We started calculating everything, just for the joy of it. So when the thrifty Rhonda appeared on television, holidaying in what appears to be Bali, which she can now afford because of the 15 per cent discount on her vehicle insurance, out came Emu’s calculator. Fifteen per cent of what insurance bill would add up to the cost of a Bali break, he wondered. Let’s say the holiday’s cost is $2000. What is that sum 15 per cent of? Taptap-tap went Emu’s big left claw on the calculator. Answer: $13,333. So, what sort of vehicle costs $13,333 to insure? Emu’s mind boggles. His spanking new sedan costs about $700 a year, full comprehensive. Rhonda must be running a fleet of million-dollar Bugattis. But, Emu concludes, she is a fine example of looking after the cents and letting the dollars look after themselves. Good on you, Rhonda! Enjoy – but watch out for sunburn, and the leering valet. Speaking of sunburn, Emu bets the Cancer Council cringes when this advert comes on the telly.

Better run promise for Ironman traffic

Landslip: A Cultural Heritage Management Plan needs to be completed before work can proceed to fix the latest landslip on the Esplanade between Mt Martha and Safety Beach. Picture: Yanni

Heritage laws hold up roadworks ROADWORKS are being held up on the Esplanade at Mt Martha while VicRoads negotiates with Aboriginal “stakeholder groups” and draws up a Cultural Heritage Management Plan. The landslip, which caused part of the road to collapse on Monday 4 June, occurred at a registered cultural heritage site. VicRoads acting regional director Anita Curnow said the management “must be completed and approved before any remedial works can be

further investigated and undertaken”. Ms Curnow said the road would remain closed “to at least the end of September”. The management plan is required under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006. Ms Curnow has again thanked “motorists and residents for their patience”. The road closure means that motorists must drive about three times further than if they were able to continue along the Esplanade. Barricades have been erected on

the Esplanade, with signs directing southbound motorists up Hearne Rd onto Forest Drive before rejoining the Esplanade to continue on into Safety Beach. Vehicles heading north are diverted up Bradford Rd. It is the third time landslips have caused the road to be closed in the past two years. Mornington Peninsula Shire claimed that drains in nearby streets were blamed for one of the slips. Keith Platt

By Mike Hast NEXT year’s Asia Pacific Ironman Championship in Frankston will be better planned than the inaugural event in March, Frankston Council has promised. Analysis of the strengths and failings of the event were presented to councillors at their most recent meeting. The report stated it was an overall success, but traffic management as well as notifying residents and motorists travelling through Frankston about road closures had been inadequate. “The event resulted in significant traffic diversions and congestion” and was a major concern, the report stated. “The impact of traffic congestion has the potential to restrict the level of emergency and medical services access to Frankston and the peninsula if the 2012 traffic management plan was relied on in the future. “However, steps are being taken to improve traffic management and all emergency services continue to be actively involved in ... discussions. “The proposed route change for the 2013 bike leg is seen as a key to improving traffic congestion.” The opening of Peninsula Link would also improve traffic flow. The council wants to see traffic arrangements for next year’s event three months beforehand. The report was neutral in detailing congestion that occurred on Sunday 25 March, but the council was hit with a truckload of complaints after some

drivers spent hours in gridlock. Many motorists were furious over the long delays. Nepean Highway and EastLink tollway were closed to vehicles, which created chaos on the roads and made it a miserable day for many. The council encouraged residents and volunteers to write to local newspapers praising the event, but other residents were critical. Pat Bentley of Frankston South, a member of Frankston Beach Association, said the council had much to answer for, “causing such awful mayhem with lack of traffic management”. “If you lived south of the CAD, bad luck. No detour signs, no police, an emergency vehicle gridlocked and cars stuck for hours in an enormous traffic jam with thousands of angry drivers, of which I was one.” The council received 53 written complaints, 50 about traffic and three about negative impacts on business. It received 19 letters of congratulation. The council report stated about 30,000 spectators and supporters saw the start and “then dispersed to various locations”. The report did not reveal the event’s full cost to council, but it spent $25,000 on entertainers, tables, chairs, marquees, VIP function, “advertising and communications” and signs. “Event organisers and owners (Ironman/USM) and the state government are liaising with all key stakeholders to ensure the event is even better in 2013.”

Applause for noise walls THE first noise walls along Peninsula Link have been installed at Carrum Downs. When finished, about 20 per cent of the freeway will be fitted with the walls to reduce noise along its 27-kilometre route. The installation of the first section of noise walls was seen as a milestone by the Parliamentary Secretary for Transport, Edward O’Donohue. Mr O’Donohue said the noise walls were the first of about 5.7 kilometres of walls to be installed along the new freeway. “A lot of effort is going into making this road look good for motorists and the surrounding community, and the noise walls are just one component of Peninsula Link’s unique urban design,” he said. “The noise walls also play a very functional role as they reduce the level of traffic noise for the adjacent residents.” Mr O’Donohue said some of the noise walls on the freeway included a heavy duty and environmentally friendly plastic – polyethylene or “poly panels”. “Peninsula Link is once again setting a benchmark, as these new walls offer benefits to the environment and the community. “The poly walls are good news for local industry as they are being manufactured at a factory in Carrum Downs, supporting local jobs and reducing travel to the site.”

Volunteers sew needed VOLUNTEERS are being asked to help sew quilts for the Royal Children’s Hospital and Monash Medical Centre. The Snuggly Quilts group meets about four times a year, with volunteers taking along their own machines and lunch. “We have the materials and cotton,” organiser Betty Smith said. The next sewing day is 9.30am-3pm on 18 August at the community centre in High St, Hastings. For details call Ms Smith on 5979 3770.

Time to register for ‘life’ relay

Passing the test: Carinya nurse unit manager Cheryl Graham, left with Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency surveyors Jenny Salmond and Angela Scarlett.

Top marks for aged care THE Carinya Residential Aged Care Service on Golf Links Rd, Frankston, has received top marks from the federal government-appointed Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency. The accreditation process involved a two-day audit of all aspects of the way the unit is run and the care being given. The service must meet all 44 expected outcomes to pass. Surveyors from the agency described Carinya as having a “very calm feeling in the home and that residents and families were very impressed with care provided and felt secure and safe”. “A residential care service that is not accredited cannot admit residents and if the failure to meet standards is ongoing it cannot operate,” aged care operations director Alison Watts said.

Peninsula Health chief executive Dr Sherene Devanesen said the accreditation was a “wonderful result that demonstrates the excellent care that the team provides to our residents”. Carinya residential aged care cares for elderly members of the community who have dementia or mental health diagnoses and cannot be managed in generic nursing homes due to behavioural issues. The 30 residents live in three home-style units, each of which is specialised to their needs. “Due to the progressive nature of each resident’s mental health problems combined with advancing age, they are unable to live at home anymore and require a higher level of medical and psychological care than normal aged care facilities,” nurse unit manager Cheryl Graham said.

ORGANISERS of this year’s Relay for Life at Frankston hope to raise $85,000 for cancer research. Teams in last year’s event reached $60,000 in the overnight relay. The 18-hour relay will begin on Saturday 22 September at Ballam Park athletics track off FrankstonCranbourne Rd. This year’s relay was launched last week by Frankston mayor Cr Brian Cunial, St Kilda Football Club’s Farren Ray and Dunkley MP Bruce Billson. “Relay for Life is more than just a fundraiser, it’s an event that brings together the community through fitness for an extremely worthy cause,” Mr Billson said. “It’s a chance for the community to celebrate cancer survivors, pay tribute to loved ones lost, and fight the disease.” Entertainment and activities will include live bands and movies. “The event gets bigger each year because it’s so much fun and there is still plenty of time to register a team as a tribute to those dear to us who have fought cancer or as a fun way to contribute to our community spirit,” Mr Billson said. Team registrations close Friday 14 September although registrations can be made at the event. Call 1300 65 65 85 or email

Fast lane for South East Water By Keith Platt and Mike Hast FRANKSTON Council is working hard to avoid delays in approving the new headquarters for South East Water on the banks of Kananook Creek. While no designs have been produced, council has already signalled it is prepared to wave its own height limits to accommodate the needs of South East Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 700 staff. Like any major development idea over the past decade, this one is being seen as a silver bullet to encourage other projoects in central Frankston. Frankston MP Geoff Shaw, who in July beat council by two hours in issuing a news release about the South East Water project, says construction is expected to start early next year and be completed by 2015. If correct, completion of the new building will coincide with the end of the lease on South East Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heatherton office, which will be closed along with offices at Dandenong South and Lynbrook. Mr Shaw says the â&#x20AC;&#x153;win for Frankstonâ&#x20AC;? followed 18 months of discussions â&#x20AC;&#x153;and the development of a strong business caseâ&#x20AC;?. However, Cr Glenn Aitken says â&#x20AC;&#x153;good long-term planning is being sacrificed to get this deal throughâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A good proposal but wrong location.â&#x20AC;? The new building will be sandwiched between the creek and the rear of the Landmark building, stretching from Wells to Playne streets. It will be higher than Landmark and end the bay views now enjoyed by its tenants.

way. She said Frankston had won a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hotly contested bidâ&#x20AC;? to bring South East Water to the city, but would not reveal how much council would receive for the land. Cr Aitkenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns are being echoed by several community groups, which have already met with Ms Homewood, the mayor Cr Brian Cunial and councillors Aitken and Christine Richards. Speaking after the â&#x20AC;&#x153;inadequateâ&#x20AC;? briefing, Hilary Poad of Long Island Residents Group accused council of being secretive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had an hour and council officers used most of the time explaining the project. Just a few of us were able to ask questions, which were not answered to our satisfaction,â&#x20AC;? Ms Poad said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This proposal has the whiff of the fiasco over the CAD redevelopment in Beach St in the early 2000s. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to be hoped history is not being repeated.â&#x20AC;? Also at the briefing were representatives of Kananook Creek Association, Frankston Beach Association and Friends of Frankston. Ms Poad says a better place for South East Water would be councilowned land near the intersection of Beach St and Fletcher Rd close to the railway station. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s structure plan, it is earmarked as the site for a gateway building and is larger than the Kananook Creek Boulevard site.â&#x20AC;?

New horizons: The existing Landmark building will be obscured from views of the foreshore if the planned new South East Water headquarters gets the go ahead. Picture: Keith Platt

The creekside, 86-space car park chosen for the building is owned by council, although it will not say how much it will receive for the prime site. South East Water reverted to being a statutory authority on 1 July and as such will not pay rates. Cr Aitken says housing staff from South East Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three existing offices in one building â&#x20AC;&#x153;has obvious economic benefits for Frankstonâ&#x20AC;?, but believes the new headquarters is being rushed through on the wrong site. He says councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adopted planning policies envisage tall buildings being

sited closer to the railway station in Young St, dropping to â&#x20AC;&#x153;a more human scaleâ&#x20AC;? toward the creek, Long Island and the beach. Managing director of Commercial Property Services Rogan Ward said South East Water â&#x20AC;&#x153;will be a bloody good thing for Frankstonâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will have many spin-offs, including for retail and restaurants.â&#x20AC;? Mr Ward said there would be no planning obstacles caused by the new building blocking views from the Landmark building â&#x20AC;&#x153;in fact it will probably mean Landmark can be fully

Safety in numbers REFLECTIVE house numbers are available free of charge at Mornington Peninsula Shire offices as part of a campaign to encourage property owners to better identify their properties. The shire has joined with police, Ambulance Victoria, the CFA and the SES to promote clear, visible house numbers. Police and emergency services report that hidden and non-existent house numbers make it difficult to find the correct address and waste precious seconds in emergency situations. Owners and occupiers of all properties are required by law to have a street number properly affixed and displayed at the front of their property. The numbers displayed should be reflective both day and night and be attached to a letterbox, a post, a dedicated board or the boundary fence.Reflective numbers are available to all residents free of charge at shire offices at 2 Queen St, Mornington; 90 Besgrove St, Rosebud; 21 Marine Pde, Hastings; and 14 Edward St, Somerville.

tenanted for the first timeâ&#x20AC;?. Frankston Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acting CEO Jane Homewood said the South East Water headquarters would â&#x20AC;&#x153;contribute $115 million a year to the local economyâ&#x20AC;?. She said the building would be set back 13 metres from the creek walls and â&#x20AC;&#x153;may be higher than the Landmark buildingâ&#x20AC;?. Ms Homewood foreshadowed that council could at some stage build a multi-storey car park and until it was developed, parking would be provided on the Dimmeys site on Nepean High-

Spy cameras record wild life in parks REMOTE sensor cameras have captured pictures of 32 native animal species living in parks throughout the Mornington Peninsula and in Frankston. The Signs of Healthy Parks program being run by Parks Victoria is used to determine the health of parks by monitoring the plants and animals that live in them. The cameras also filmed introduced species living in Point Nepean and Mornington Peninsula national parks and Langwarrin Flora and Fauna Reserve. More than 100 locations were surveyed in habitats varying from heathland and coastal scrub to woodland and creeksides. The results were “surprising and very pleasing”, according to Parks Victoria’s Mark Antos, who helped design the survey. “We picked up dozens of rare longnosed bandicoots at a lot more sites than expected, as well as white-footed dunnarts on the coastal strip, and even some unexpected Lewin’s rail birds at five sites. They can be very difficult to find because of their secretive habits. “I guess we thought that after 10 years of drought, a lot more urban development and constant pressure from cats, dogs and foxes there wouldn’t be a diverse range or good numbers of these vulnerable little creatures around. “But we’ve been pleased to find that they’ve been breeding up again with the recent good seasons.” Mr Antos was “almost certain” a rare native broad-toothed rat was filmed.

Investigations are being made to confirm the animal’s identity. “It’s never been recorded on the peninsula before,” Mr Antos said. “However we did see lots of introduced black rats at many sites. These aggressive rodents can raid birds’ nests and eat eggs and young hatchlings as well as native mice and baby mammals.” Rosebud-based Parks Victoria ranger Louise Bracy said the findings of the survey were a reminder of how the peninsula’s “local native residents” could be protected. “Don’t wander off walking tracks, observe dogs on lead signs, keep cats locked in at night, and don’t leave food scraps around to encourage rats and foxes,” she said. “There’s been a lot of emphasis on hooded plovers along the water’s edge where dogs and humans have a real impact, but there are also lots of other animals living on coastal strips between car parks and beaches, like wallabies, dunnarts and bandicoots.” Parks Victoria’s environment team leader Daniel Hudson said the survey results would help guide future planning. “It will really help us to make the best decisions on issues like where best to do ecological burning, what are the most important areas in a park for fox control, and which locations we need to protect from heavy use by visitors.” Footage of some of the animals filmed is at Victoria

The perfect start to a cold winter’s day OPEN from 7.30am daily, Peninsula Hot Springs is one of the most enticing reasons to rise early on a chilly winter’s day. Imagine starting your morning listening to the birdlife of Fingal while overlooking Bass Strait and Port Phillip Bay, the backdrop to the rolling hills of “The Cups”. This is the view from one of Peninsula Hot Springs’ newest offerings, the 360-degree Hilltop pool. For local residents, early bird and evening savings are available in the Bath House bathing area from 7.30am to 10am and 7pm to 10pm Monday to Friday. If you are looking to make a healthy habit of Peninsula Hot Springs bathing, early morning is the ideal time to bathe. With change room facilities that include amenities such as hair dryers, shampoo and conditioner, it is a great way to start the day. Committed to evolving the world of bathing experiences available, Peninsula Hot Springs is continually giving guests new reasons to visit. This August the eagerly awaited Lakeside Thermal Hydrojet pool will open to the public. This feature will be complemented by a new exercise circuit and walking track set to open in November. With more than 20 bathing experiences on offer in the Bath

House area, there is a lot to discover. The Hamam (Turkish steam room), sauna, natural hot thermal pools and mineral showers each provide a tempting way to warm-up, relax and rejuvenate. Peninsula Hot Springs also includes the Spa Dreaming Centre, an intimate bathing area for guests aged 16 and over. The centre is open from 9am to 9pm daily and comprises a day spa, private and public bathing areas and a cafe. For people seeking a relaxing and tranquil experience, the Spa Dreaming Centre is the perfect choice. After extensive planning and research, two Mornington Peninsula wellness providers, Hummingbird Eco Retreat and Peninsula Hot Springs, launched a four-day and three-night Wellness retreats in June. Held once a month, the retreats provide participants with a comprehensive program that combines relaxation with instruction on nutrition, stress management and fitness. All-inclusive packages with accommodation are available, as are workshop-only packages specifically designed for local residents.

Performance NEIL Diamond was a major songwriter before a producer suggested he record his own songs after hearing him playing in local coffee shops. He had penned hits such as I’m a Believer (The Monkees), He Ain’t Heavy (Hollies) and The Boat that I Row (Lulu) among many others. Diamond signed to Bang Records and released his first three singles – Solitary Man, Cherry Cherry and I’ve Got the Feeling. His big break came with the release of Sweet Caroline, which hit No. 4 on the United States charts and his first United Kingdom hit Cracklin’ Rosie. Diamond went through a slight image change from clean-cut to longer hair and had hits with I Am I Said, Song Sung Blue, as well as the Hot August Night live set and the Jonathan Livingston Seagull soundtrack album. For me another Diamond highlight was the Beautiful Noise album in 1974 produced by Robbie Roberston. Diamond also did a duet with Barbra Streisand on the hit You Don’t Bring Me Flowers and starred in the 1980 remake of the film The Jazz Singer. Albums like Primitive, Headed For the Future (1986) and Lovescape (1991) testified to his enduring success, and in 1993 he celebrated his past with On the Roof – Songs of the Brill Building. Hot August Night holds a special place in the hearts of many Australians. I remember picking up a vinyl copy of the album from Brashs; then some years down the line a CD. To mark the anniversary Universal Music will release Neil Diamond Hot August Night 40th Anniversary Edition. The album will include previously unreleased songs recorded at the show. A Modern Day Version of Love is one of his songs from 1968 finally featured on the new album. The Randy Newman song I Think It’s Going to Rain Today was left off the original. The song Gitchy Goomy he introduces as a philosophy lesson to a child learning about life. Originally recorded at Los Angeles’ legendary Greek Theatre in 1972, the 40 th anniversary edition is fully remastered, housed in deluxe packaging,

features previously unreleased additional tracks and includes new photos and new extended liner notes, personally overseen by Diamond. On its release in 1972, it stormed up the Australian charts, spending 29 weeks at No. 1. It became the Diamond album and cemented his status as a legend. The album, and its “Good Lord” catchcry from Crunchy Granola Suite, became inescapable – such was the albums unparalleled ubiquity. Still one of the biggest selling albums of all time in Australia, this amazing live performance is now expanded to mark its 40th year. Hot August Night still lives up to its reputation as the ultimate Diamond record. Tracks featured include Crunchy Granola Suite, Cherry Cherry, Red

Red Wine, Porcupine Pie, Shilo, Kentucky Woman, Play Me, Holly Holy, Song Sung Blue and previously unreleased bonus tracks. This is a truly lovingly constructed celebration of one of the most cherished recordings of recorded music history. *** ROADSHOW Entertainment has released on DVD The Diamond Jubilee HM Queen Elizabeth II: The Official BBC Highlights, the June celebrations of the Diamond Jubilee. It features highlights from the Thames River pageant, the service of thanksgiving, and carriage procession. It is 59 minutes and available now. *** GALE Edwards’s new production

of Chess, the Musical opens at the Arts Centre’s State Theatre in Melbourne on 18 August. Aw a r d - w i n n i n g Edwards is directing a new staging of the Tim Rice, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson musical. Tony Bartuccio choreographs and David Piper conducts. The life of the musical Chess has been as chequered as the board on which the game is played. It had success as a concept album in 1974 and was a smash hit when it was staged on London’s West End in 1986. It ran for three years and reviews were enthusiastic. Sir Tim Rice – who wrote the books for Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, The Lion King and Evita – collaborated with the men from ABBA, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, to create the musical Chess. In the musical, the game of chess becomes more than a tournament; it encompasses romantic rivalries and east-west political intrigue. The 33-strong cast includes Simon Gleeson, Silvie Paladino, Martin Crewes, Mark Dickinson, Michael Falzon and Bert La Bonte supported by Orchestra Victoria. Book 1300 182 183 or online *** THIS year is the 40th anniversary of the release of Deep Purple’s landmark album Machine Head. In recognition of the band’s influence, and that of the album in particular, some of rock music’s biggest names have contributed a

sation, the crooked financial advisers – the list is long. The homeless druggie who steals from a shop; we lower the boom, a permanent fabric of society. Media moralist Mark Robinson of the Herald Sun was satisfied that PP Chris Judd showed genuine remorse, so why not be convinced of genuine remorse for non-PP Sharrod Wellingham? From the highest to the lowest, I simply make the point. *** I SHOP at Woolworths. It’s easy and the staff are always nice, so what don’t I like? I don’t like the four for $10 offer on soups. How about looking after single people? Perhaps one for a quarter of the price on production of a pensioner card? I only want one, or maybe two, so I buy none. This two for, three for or four for grates. I don’t like those specials blocks with a similar item underneath but not part of the special; cunning. What advantage the “everyday rewards” after five years? Very, very little; maybe four cents a litre off if I queue up for a saving of 80 cents. I get the image of tarantulas in suits at computers planning how to increase profits; improve their nice guy image while at the same time destroying small businesses and any other competition. They want to be chemists, opticians; maybe have

poker machines for waiting spouses? Who selects the music? I buy a brand of cream for five years then it disappears from the shelves. Pressure applied to suppliers or insufficient sales? Mind you, if Woolies spent a fortune on advertising in this newspaper, the theory of editorial independence would be swept aside. [Editor’s note: No it wouldn’t, Cliff.] *** ILLUMINATI, as in people claiming to have special enlightenment or knowledge of something, are fit and well among us. The “third eye”, which is located in the middle of your forehead, is feminine I’m told. It receives extrasensory, intuitive impressions and transcends the boundaries of the five physical senses. It is the seat of clairvoyance, clairsentience, etc. Through this centre you can feel the energy of someone else – emotions, pains, joys – as your own. With the ability of empathy, you transcend the boundaries of the ego and connect with “that which is not you”. I knew all this years ago. Do I believe in it? Yes, of course. But just once, tell me the Powerball numbers. *** REMEMBER the show The Perils of Pauline with Betty Hutton? I compare it to the perils of moi when I have a

day of seeing all three of my kids, now all 40 plus and highly qualified to advise me on anything and everything. They’re adults! Yeah? What am I? Happily I participated in their introduction to Earth, I think. One had a birthday recently where I met three of her city friends who listened and advised along the same lines with complete disinterest on anything I had to offer, leading me to conclude that it is not only one’s children, it is almost all the under 50 brigade, bless them. So be it. Leave me be. My life is still my life, as is yours. Go sail your boats. I won’t interfere. Pondering, as always. *** WHY do they want more? In a way I’m fortunate as I have rarely been struck with this almost universal need for “more”. Double good fortune in not being sent to a boarding school in the Ballarat area, I suppose. I’ve had three moves of necessity in life, but never the thought of more space, second living areas, open plan and the like. I often wonder why. Advertising indoctrination, the thought of a Powerball win, something better for the kids who leave as soon as they’re old enough anyway? Why a house overlooking the sea or a Mercedes or crayfish? Well, perhaps crayfish. I

There are two wildly differing versions of the album’s most famous track Smoke on the Water, one from guitar hero Carlos Santana with vocals by Jacoby Shaddix, and one from alternative rockers Flaming Lips. Metallica has contributed its own special take on When a Blind Man Cries, a track recorded at the Machine Head sessions but originally released by Deep Purple as the B side to Never Before. This is a unique release that will appeal to rock fans everywhere. It features specially recorded tracks from former Deep Purple member Glenn Hughes with Chad Smith of Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Chickenfoot, Black Label Society, Carlos Santana and Jacoby Shaddix, Jimmy Barnes and Joe Bonamassa and the supergroup Kings Of Chaos featuring Joe Elliott, Steve Stevens, Duff Mckagan and Matt Sorum.

A Grain of Salt I’M writing from Port Douglas so am presently adrift from happenings on the Mornington Peninsula. Somebody once said if you’re everywhere you’re nowhere. With a column of this type you have no idea where it will all end when you begin, well aware that it is almost impossible to put the pieces together if you do not have the idea of the whole. You’re not quite sure how you will manage not to become self-obsessed, diverted, lost and with a number of necessary stops and starts, try to evade the real problem of ending up – nowhere. I’ve been regularly asked what my column is about. Ralph Waldo Emerson had a sign on the door of his study: Whim? There lies the answer. *** I’VE previously mentioned impartiality, as in a law for the rich and a law for the poor, PPs being protected persons. Stealing a loaf of bread and being sent to New Holland, leaving behind a family to starve to death. Or the sheep stealer who was freezing, starving and with another family to feed; hanged while the lawmakers were free to practice oppression, lust, tyranny and held up as honorable gentlemen, often with titles. In this day and age it is merely in a different form; the cardboard king saga, the asbestos compen-

By Cliff Ellen look at all those balconies and they’re always empty. It’s a mad, mad world; no doubt about it. Even so. *** SHORT random thoughts: Our government only hands out brothel licences to applicants of good repute? Christmas in July; sheer nonsense. Professor Emeritus Boris Schedvin complains about the capital cost of the proposed aquatic centre in a letter to one of the other local newspapers; why the full title? Maybe I’ll sign as Certified Practising Accountant, Health & Safety Certificate Holder and Lifestyle Counsellor Cliff Ellen. On the occasions where trouble looms, we regularly say “life’s too short to worry”, but the thing is, for me, life really is too short. “We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office.” Aesop Cheers, I’m off for a swim.

Saddle up! Taking the high horse out for a gallop By Stuart McCullough DUST off the saddle. Strap on the riding boots, prepare the bridle and slip into your best pair of jodhpurs. While you’re at it, oil up the spurs and fix your preferred crash helmet firmly to your noggin. Why? Because it’s time to get on the high horse. And once firmly seated astride that mighty steed, I plan to ride that thing into the sunset; its hooves cracking against the bedrock of reason and logic, together we will gallop great distances until all those who resist us collapse with exhaustion. There’s nothing I love more than a little bit of righteous indignation. Frankly, any excuse that I have to get up on my high horse is welcomed. It used to be that I assumed an air of moral superiority only in the most pressing of circumstances. However, I have noticed a disturbing trend in which I will immediately seek refuge on the high moral ground with the slightest provocation. Take my ring tone. I don’t particularly remember how it was that I settled on the ringtone for my mobile. For all I know it’s the default setting. But as far as I’m concerned, its default status has been well earned and deserves a little respect. Recently, however, someone else in my immediate office area has adopted the very same ringtone. I consider this an act of absolute barbarism. It means that I am forever thinking that my phone is calling my name from various geographical points. There should be rules against such acts of naked aggression. Or, if not rules, then an unfettered right to re-

taliate. Granted, I could probably reset my ringtone but why should I? Or, for that matter, how do I? While I realise that kids today change their ringtones as frequently and as easily as they change their shirts or violate international copyright law, these are things to which I have given the scantest of scant attention. Previously, I never really gave any thought to my ringtone. Now it is all that I think about. I hear it in my dreams. At first I thought that I would do as everyone else seems to do and set up

Do you have items to sell?

left to trot gently by, firmly seated in my saddle, nose aloft as the ringtone that sounds a lot like mine echoes across the office. If only my desire to seat myself on the elevated equine was limited to ring tones. Recently, a sticker appeared on my milk that declared it was “permeate free”. I was unsure if this meant that the product contained none of the substance in question or whether I was getting a supply of permeate for nothing. As some kind of a bonus. The sticker did not see fit to explain. Despite this scarcity of information, I was supposed to know whether having permeate in your milk was a good or bad thing. I don’t recall being taught anything about permeates in school. To me it sounds like a particular kind of hairstyle from 1987. As I recall, back then, all the girls in my class had remarkable permeates. I can picture them now, hair aloft and reaching for the ceiling in our school photo. But if a permeate is not a hairstyle, then I am officially flummoxed. They assume I know too much. If there’s one thing that gets me on my high horse, it’s assumed knowledge. In fact, more than just putting me on my high horse, it also gets my goat. This, of course, becomes quite difficult, as trying to restrain a live, belligerent goat on an equally hostile thoroughbred is no easy task. In fact, it’s so difficult that I have begun to resent it. And resentment is something that totally gets my gander. It’s not just the fact of getting my gander as much as what it does with my gander once

a website to protest my cause, www. I’m yet to get any hits as such and the forum page remains as empty as the world’s loneliest bar. Clearly, the power of the internet has been greatly overstated. There must be another way. It is difficult to know how to settle such a dispute. The days of challenging others to a duel are, largely speaking, behind us. Even an invitation to “paper, rock, scissors” can be regarded as inappropriate for the workplace. Instead, I am

it’s in its nasty little hands. Those who take ganders that don’t belong to them are clearly a societal menace and should be stopped as a matter of priority. Now on my high horse, balancing my goat and searching for my gander, which has been kidnapped by person or persons unknown, I am determined to get to the bottom of things. I am, in fact, like a dog with a bone. This frightens the goat, which immediately scarpers. The absence of anything resembling opposable digits means that the horse is now nigh-on impossible to control. This makes me feel like a complete goose. Having found my goose, I am still in search of my gander, albeit on a directionless nag that is wandering about the countryside. I tell you, it’s a state of affairs that has really put the cat among the pigeons. The goat, naturally enough, thinks this is hilarious. All this mayhem because of a lousy sticker on my milk telling me that it is permeate free. It is clear what I should do. I must give up the gander, surrender the goose, yield the goat and put the high horse out to pasture. It is time to give it a rest, at least for a while. I should start by being a little kinder to myself, to various metaphorical animals and, indeed, to other people. In fact, perhaps I’ll make some phone calls and cheer some people up. If they don’t answer, I’ll leave a message. I will, of course, turn my phone to vibrate. I suppose I don’t really need that ringtone after all. Not every battle is worth fighting. Not every affront deserves the high horse.

At the Bendigo it starts with U.

Tigers down premiers as Blues, Somie, Crib Point win NEPEAN DIVISION By Toe Punt SORRENTO will be without ruckman Scott Cameron until the finals begin after he was reported in the last quarter in his side’s 37-point loss to Dromana on Saturday. Cameron was reported by the goal and field umpires after striking Tigers ruckman-forward Steven Gaertner. Gaertner left the field after the incident, but returned to be a key influence in the game in the final quarter. It was tough day on the ground for the team of the year ruckman, who was comprehensively beaten by Tigers duo Gaertner and Seamus Thompson. However, Cameron wasn’t the only player well beaten by Dromana on Saturday; there weren’t too many winners for the Sharks. Premiership coach Troy Schwarze left the field in the third quarter and didn’t return after Paul Minchington split him down the middle for the second time this season. The first time saw Schwarze miss a number of weeks with a shoulder injury. On this occasion, it looked like he sustained a cracked cheekbone. He was due to join St Kilda in his role as an assistant at the MCG on Saturday night, but didn’t make it, spending hours in Rosebud Hospital. Full-back Chris Bagot was vomiting prior to the game due to a virus, which also affected Josh Moore. Mitch Nibbs was a noticeable absentee. Dalton Sanderson was probably the standout player, along with Leigh Treeby, and Kayle Stringer-Morris pushed hard all afternoon, but the day belonged to the Tigers. Despite missing a couple a regulars, including Aaron Coyle and Scott Joyce, the Tigers were up and about from the start.

They won the contested footy all afternoon, their run and spread was too difficult for the Sharks to combat, and they had more players prepared to commit themselves at the contest. Trailing by just 11 points at the first change, Sorrento coach Nick Claringbold told his charges to start getting in first for the footy, get a little lower at the contest and tackle the ball carrier. The message was clear, simple and well delivered. It seemed to be a consistent message in the backs, mids and forward huddles too. However, the message must have gone in one ear and out the other. Sorrento continued to look for the easy ball, didn’t want to get their knees dirty and paid the price. Dromana had winners all over the ground. The Tigers started in the middle with ruckman Thomson and Gaertner. They controlled the air in the middle, around the ground and from boundary throw-ins. Sorrento’s second-string ruckman Jon Croad was the better of the two Sharks’ big men. Terry Wheeler was easily best player on the ground. His ability to win the contested ball, outside ball, and run and carry was a feature of the match. Rikki Johnston was outstanding in defence. He was pretty much left to his own devices, which was a poor tactic. Jay Neratzoglou towelled up Kenyon, Ryan Worn gave Leigh Poholke a bath, and midfielders Damon Lawrence, Braeden Dennis, Liam Hogan and Ryan Slocombe had a mortgage on the footy. This quartet is the engine room of the Tigers with the likes of Wheeler, a brilliant Paul Minchington, Toby Banks and Co using their speed and skill to carve up Sorrento on the outside. Jay Hutchison, Jedd Savage and Anthony Bruhn lead up all afternoon

and provided aerial strength as well as dominanting at ground level. It was a comprehensive victory from Dromana. 27 scoring shots to 14 accurately reflecting the dominance. Dromana now has to keep a lid on things. All they have proven to this point is they have what it takes to mix it with the reigning premier. Finals and premierships aren’t won in round 14. Coach Gavin Artico agreed, but said he believed the victory would be good for his charges leading into finals. “At this time of the year, you want to be playing the best sides and being competitive against them,” Artico said. “Confidence plays a huge part at this time of the year and if you’re playing good footy, then it gives you the drive and motivation to keep doing the work. “This has been a long and tough process for everyone at the club, but I think we can all see it has been worth it. “We have good depth, we all understand what it takes to win big games of footy and I honestly believe we still have some improvement to come.” If the Tigers can improve, beating them from this point is going to be extremely difficult. It appears that both Dromana and Hastings have sealed a spot in the top three after the Blues knocked over Frankston Bombers on Saturday. In what was a scrappy contest for most of the afternoon, the Bombers didn’t have the manpower in the last quarter to match it with the home side. The Bombers lost Luke Lewis in the first three minutes of the match and Haydn Moore before quarter time. Moore has been a standout performer for the Bombers this season. Ryan Lonie also succumbed to injury and the Bombers were left with very few options in the final term. The Blues took advantage, booted

five goals to one in the final term and recording a 35-point victory. Jason Kestle was a nightmare for the Bombers when he moved into the forward half and finished with three goals. Paul Rogasch was outstanding across half-back, Daniel Wishart played one of his best games for the season, and Mark Deveraux continued his outstanding season. Jay Page played on a wing for the Bombers and was arguably the best player on the ground. Brian O’Carroll was good over four quarters, Brad Wakeling booted three and tried hard, and James Degenhardt fulfilled his tagging role. The Bombers remain outside the top five and must win their final two games against Somerville and Crib Point to have any chance of playing finals. One club that would love nothing more than to prevent Frankston Bombers playing finals is Somerville. Eagles coach Leigh Stewart is a former coach of the Bombers and the split wasn’t amicable, to say the least. The Eagles were expected to just drift through the remainder of the season and not have too much influence, but on Saturday, Somerville came from eight points down at three-quarter time to easily account for Red Hill to the tune of 21 points. The Eagles booted seven goals to two in the final quarter to win just their fourth game of the season. Ben Sedgewick and Caleb Cox kicked three goals each for the Eagles, and Rowan Hogenbirk kicked two. Will Jolley was outstanding for the Eagles over four quarters, Jason Baxter continued his outstanding run, and Justin Allsop continued to shine. Jed Sutton and Guy Austin also were very good. Stewart would have been happy to have these two for the majority of the year.

Red Hill was shellshocked. Daniel McNamara and Ben Maguiness worked hard, and David Maplestone kicked three goals. Pearcedale moved off the bottom of the ladder on Saturday after comprehensively beating Tyabb by eight goals. The Panthers started the game full of running courtesy of the likes of Damien McCormack and Chris Fortnam, and Dean Jannsen slipped straight back into the good form he has been displaying. At quarter time the Panthers had a handy 16-point break and extended this to 23 points at the major break. McCormack finished the afternoon with four goals, and Daniel Murray enjoyed good supply and kicked five. Glenn Anderson was solid all afternoon, and Pat Cadd had some real influence on the contest. Ash Watersone kicked four goals for the Yabbies, Andrew Driscoll booted three, and Chris Doria was outstanding once again. Ryan Jones and Simon and Ethan Rahilly also worked hard all afternoon. Crib Point is still a mathematical chance of playing finals after defeating Devon Meadows. The Magpies were superb all game to record a comfortable 45-point win. Brad Davidson was at his mercurial best, finishing with six goals, Luke Herrington and Jon Flack each kicked three, and Zac Dekleuver played his best game for the club. Devon was never in the contest, despite the efforts of Daniel Velardo, Jess Dehey and Brett Armitage. Up there, boys: Hastings Blues defeated Frankston Bombers in Nepean Division on the weekend.

Edi-Asp fly flag as Redlegs kick Gulls PENINSULA DIVISION By Toe Punt BONBEACH was unable to maintain its run of good form when it came up against the best side in the business on Saturday, Frankston YCW. The Sharks had a fantastic run of form in recent weeks, winning three of four games and going down to Karingal by just 10 points. Bonbeach had worked its way up to fourth place on the ladder before the round 15 game against YCW. Obviously, the team was hoping for a solid performance. The first time the sides met, the margin was nine goals in favour of the Stonecats. At quarter time on Saturday, Bonbeach had kicked four goals, but trailed by 16 points. By half-time, the margin had blown out to seven goals. In the end, the Sharks were fortunate to work their way back into the game and lose by 57 points. Bonbeach coach Steven Capp told The News after the game that it was a pretty tough day at the office. “They’re a pretty good side I think,” Capp joked. “Their big fellas got hold of us and there was little we could do about it. “Our first quarter was pretty good

and I thought we worked hard in the third quarter, but we just struggled to contain them all day. “We weren’t overly surprised with the result. “Their bottom five or six players are better than most teams and that was the difference in the end. “We lost concentration at times and their class showed through. “We need a couple of monsters to be able to compete with YCW’s. Ash Eames and Brad Ulms really dominated. Eames’s tap work is as good as a handball.” Michael Chaplin booted three goals for the Stonecats, and Ben Tellis, David Bodley, Kyle Hutchison and Lew Roberts kicked two each. Anthony Barry provided plenty of run from half-back, and Paul Wintle and Dale Carroll also were instrumental in the win. Jason Ferraro and Tom Payton were among the Sharks’ best, and Shane McDonald and Jackson Casey also worked tirelessly. Mt Eliza bounced back from its horror defeat last week at the hands of Karingal to demolish Chelsea by 112 points. The Redlegs had mixed fortunes leading into the game with the news that star forward Sam Lloyd had

agreed to join Bendigo Bombers in the VFL. With AFL aspirations still there, Lloyd, who has booted 59 goals for the Redlegs this season, decided to try his hand with the Bombers. However, the Redlegs had a stroke of luck following the Lloyd move. Sandringham listed-player Michael Lourey asked for permission to head back to Mt Eliza to play out the rest of the year. It is almost a straight swap. Both are goalkicking midfielders, good overhead and hard at the footy. On Saturday Lourey booted six goals in a dominant performance for the Redlegs. Scott Lockwood also booted six as the Redlegs amassed 41 scoring shots to 14. Scott Simpson dominated through the middle for the visitors, and Dylan Emmons and Dave Barton continued their good form. Mt Eliza went into the game without prime movers Rohan Heasley and Josh Norman. Both are expected back for the pointy end of the season. Coach Jason Watts said he was pleased with the way his side bounced back. “We had a dirty day last week against a very good footy side [Karingal],” he said.

“We were a bit flat; they came to play and we didn’t. “Today was about getting back to the basics, getting our structures right and trying a few different things. “The reality is that we are a bit predictable to Karingal and we need to change that before we meet them again in the second semi-final. “Now is about gearing up for finals. The boys are going through a heavy training load at the moment and we want to be ready.” Sam Carpenter was once again Chelsea’s best player, and Scott McLeod and Chris Worner booted two goals each. Karingal did the expected and comfortably beat Langwarrin. The Bulls booted five goals to one in the first quarter, led by 38 points at half-time and stretched this to 92 by the final siren. Chris Hay booted six goals and Michael Burke five. Brendan Dunne, David Hirst and Troy Hoad continued their domination in the back line. Dylan Luxa along with the everreliable Shane Urbans and Daniel Wehner were the best of the Kangas. Edithvale-Aspendale won its third game of the season when it knocked over Mornington by 20 points. The Eagles got their noses in front

early in the game and were able to sustain the intensity over four quarters. Nick Connellan and Beau Turner dominated for the winners, and Tim Mannix and Jordan Derbyshire also had good games. For the Doggies, Kallum Searle, Daniel Villani with three goals and Byron Holt in the ruck all worked hard. It was a great result for the Eagles, especially without captain Pat Poore, who was out due to suspension. Pines made it four wins from its past five matches with a sensational 22-point win over Seaford in the traditional Sunday clash. The Tigers led by four points at halftime before the Pythons kicked seven goals to three after the main interval to record another win. Seaford had everything to play for on Sunday, including a spot in the five, but couldn’t dig deep enough and stop the likes of Brendan Neville, Jimmy Messina and Leigh Houldcroft, who dominated all afternoon for the Pythons. Shaun White was also solid with three goals. Michael Kraska was the only multiple goalkicker for the Tigers with five, and Luke Smith, Kieran Shaw and Luke Davenport were among the best.

Out for the season?

Is there conflict? IT will be interesting to see how long MPNFL club presidents put up with newly appointed league chief executive officer Jeff Jones continuing his role as Southern Umpires Association chairman. While many in the league community accepted the fact Jeff Jones would continue to umpires to reach 1000 games, I’m not sure how many would be as accepting of him managing the league and the umpires association. Surely the two bodies need to be independent of each other? After all, the SUA is a service provider to the league. If there’s an umpiring pay dispute before finals, does Mr Jones declare a conflict of interest and remove himself from dealing with the situation? Surely Mr Jones needs to concentrate on the deficiencies and increasing issues that MPNFL clubs experience from day to day. Jones told The News prior to the Sorrento and Dromana game on Saturday that it wasn’t a conflict because the SUA role is voluntary. For mine, that makes zero difference.

Lopsided Casey-Cardinia WHAT a joke the Casey-Cardinia division has become. In one of the most lopsided competitions in MPNFL history, it’s now a case of the haves and have nots. And what about the goalkickers? Cranbourne full-forward Marc Holt booted 22 goals last week against Hampton Park for a season total of 116. Former Hampton Park and Pearcedale full-forward Kerem Baskaya booted 13 goals on the weekend for Narre Warren to move to 109 goals. Top of the table Narre Warren is averaging 168 points for and 49 points against this season, while second-placed Cranbourne averages 156 points for and 53 points against. At the other end of the scale, Hampton Park averages 30 points for and 188 points against.

SORRENTO premiership coach Troy Schwarze may miss the rest of the season it looked like he had busted his cheekbone on Saturday against Dromana. For the second time this season, Dromana’s Paul Minchington copped Schwarze with a fair hip and shoulder. The first time saw Schwarze miss weeks with a shoulder injury. The hot rumour around the ground on Saturday was that he would be airlifted to the city immediately after the game to carry out his duties as an assistant at St Kilda Football Club. Sorrento would not confirm or deny this rumour on Sunday morning, although it was reported as fact in a Melbourne daily newspaper. However, a club spokesperson said Schwarze spent a few hours in Rosebud Hospital with what appeared to be a cracked cheekbone. Scans on Sunday were to determine the full extent of the injuries.

One in, one out MT Eliza is certainly in the mix for the 2012 MPNFL Peninsula Division premiership. However, VFL team Bendigo Bombers has been on the heels of Redlegs gun Sam Lloyd to join them for a kick all season. On Saturday, the forward-midfielder took his opportunity at VFL level, continuing to live the dream of playing AFL. The Bombers are obviously keen to have Lloyd for the remainder of the season with the outside chance of taking him in the next draft. He has been training with the Bombers for the past four weeks. While Mt Eliza coach Jason Watts is confident Lloyd will return for the Redlegs “at the pointy end of the season”, he was more than willing to allow Lloyd to follow his dream. “He’s a quality player and it is a great opportunity for him,” Watts said. Lloyd has booted 59 goals this season. The news gets better for the Redlegs – they have been able to lure Michael Lourey from Sandringham, where he was coached by Seaford dual premiership coach Paul Kennedy. Lourey booted six goals on a Saturday against Chelsea in what Watts described as a “quality performance”.

Cats head West to keep momentum Round 20 Previews Friday 10 August West Coast v Geelong, Patersons Stadium, 8.40pm To kick off a pretty good week of footy, the Cats head west, looking to continue their recent scintillating form. Geelong, despite have one of the toughest runs home, hasn’t let anyone stand in its way. Three top-eight wins in three weeks, and in their last win, a goal after the siren from Tom Hawkins elevated their premiership chances another notch. The only negative was surrendering a nine-goal lead from the first half. West Coast went down to a traditionally low-scoring Fremantle team by 65. Veteran midfielder Daniel Kerr was excellent, racking up 36 touches, but didn’t have any support from his fellow midfielders. On form Geelong should win easily, but something has to give for the Eagles. West Coast by 11 points. Saturday 13 August St Kilda v Melbourne, MCG, 1.45pm St Kilda this week plays a rare home game at the MCG, and the club be looking to win as a loss will rule out finals chances. The Saints let a golden opportunity slip against Collingwood; they had the ascendency heading into the last term, but failed to maintain it.

Now, they’ve got to win all their games and rely on rivals to lose to make the finals. As for Melbourne, they had a relatively easy win against Gold Coast. With a game against the GWS coming up, they have a great chance of finishing the year in good spirits. Overall the Saints have more to play for. St Kilda by 64 points. Adelaide v Fremantle, AAMI Stadium, 2.10pm In another fantastic game in round 20, the top-two Crows play a Dockers side in striking distance of the top eight. The Crows produced a come-from-behind win against Essendon; Taylor Walker was a beacon of light in their forward line, kicking four goals and producing a few clutch marks late in the game. The Dockers were sensational in the derby against the Eagles; captain Matthew Pavlich is in career-best form and has kicked more goals than anyone this season. Michael Barlow and David Mundy are getting near the form they showed before injuries last year. This game is very hard to call, but the home ground advantage and the possibility of top spot should get the Crows over the line. Adelaide by 21 points. Gold Coast v GWS Giants, Metricon Stadium, 4:40pm Saturday afternoon in Queensland presents a match between the two minnows of the league. The Suns were generally disappointing last weekend; it didn’t help losing Dion Prestia and Zac Smith early on, but they still had

very poor first and third quarters. The Giants played their best match of the season, beating Port Adelaide by 34 points. If both teams are playing to win, the Giants would win easily on current form, but I don’t think GWS has a lot to benefit from by winning this match. They want the number one draft pick and the loser here will almost certainly get it. The Suns need a confidence booster and this is their chance. Gold Coast by 15 points. Carlton v Brisbane, Etihad Stadium, 7.40pm With the season coming to a close, the top eight spots up for grabs are dwindling each week, which doesn’t benefit the Blues. On the weekend they were beaten by a much better side in Sydney. It was a game crucial to Carlton’s finals aspirations; now like a few other teams it has to keep winning and rely on other teams to lose. Brisbane has continued its losing ways, as players continue to run out of puff. They probably only put in one good quarter for the match and were consistently beaten in the midfield and they seem too Jonathan Brown conscious. Carlton must win this match; if not the consequences will be dire. Carlton by 24 points. Sydney v Collingwood, ANZ Stadium, 7.40pm In the match of the round, two top-four teams play for a mental edge heading into finals, where they will most likely meet. Collingwood has been Sydney’s

bogey team for the better part of a decade; they haven’t won since their last flag. This season is a different story with Sydney playing at its best and the Pies not looking as powerful as last year. However, Jude Bolton injuring his leg is a blow for Sydney, which relies on its in-and-under midfielders. Another factor is the Swans generally don’t play well at ANZ Stadium and Collingwood has won seven of nine games at the ground. It comes down to who has the potential to play better and that is Collingwood. Collingwood by 2 points. Sunday 12 August Hawthorn v Port Adelaide, Aurora Stadium, 1.10pm In Tasmania this weekend, the mighty Hawks will have a point to prove and hapless Port Adelaide will cop the brunt of it. The Hawks had a chance to break their Geelong hoodoo, but failed in a titanic battle. There was a lot to like about the game; at one stage in the second quarter the Hawks were behind by 50 plus points but managed to get in front by the last quarter. One thing I didn’t like was the lack of physical pressure from key defender Ryan Schoenmakers. Yes, he has improved out of sight this year, but it could cost him come finals time. As for Port Adelaide, what can I say? They lost to GWS. Hawthorn by 89 points. Richmond v Western Bulldogs, MCG, 3.15pm Sunday presents a game between two Victorian teams entrenched in the

Essendon v North Melbourne, Etihad Stadium, 4.40pm To end a fantastic round, two sides on the fringe of the eight play for a spot in the finals. The Bombers finally showed some fight in a tight four-point loss to Adelaide. But again another soft-tissue injury threatens to derail their season, with the consistent Ben Howlett going down. It took the Kangaroos half a game to wake up and play some decent football. Drew Petrie continues to kick bags and the evergreen Brent Harvey doesn’t seem to be slowing. With their best teams on the park the Bombers would win this hands down, but that’s not the case. The Roos are only missing Ziebell and look likely to get a bit of breathing space the winner will receive at the end of this game. North Melbourne by 32 points.

bottom 10 and with both their seasons over, they are playing for pride. The Tigers got the job done against Brisbane in convincing fashion. A defender, Luke McGuane, proved a surprise packet up forward kicking three goals. For the Bulldogs, consistency was the enemy; they put in a great first half, but faded against North Melbourne. They certainly aren’t afraid of blooding youngsters; they added two more on the weekend in Johannisen and Talia, and both played well. The MCG hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for the Dogs over the year, and Tigers are in much better form. Richmond by 23 points.
