$15m to finish pier Wave screens make harbour 70% safer

Under cover: Ports Minister Dennis Napthine provides a bit of shelter to Mornington MP David Morris on Monday after announcing that money was available to complete the restoration of the pier. Picture: Yanni

By Mike Hast THE state government will spend $15 million to rebuild the outer 75 metres of Mornington Pier. The grant announced on Monday by Minister for Ports Dennis Napthine and Mornington MP David Morris is the lion’s share of $23 million allocated in the state budget earlier this month for “critical local port infrastructure upgrades�. The news has been welcomed by boaties, environmentalists and traders, with Mr Morris singled out for praise for getting the money during tight economic times. The grant includes money to install wave screen panels on the middle, 53-metre section rebuilt between August 2010 and September 2011 (work ceased mid-December 2010 to 1 February 2011 to enable walkers and anglers to use the pier). The rebuilt outer section also will have wave screens. Mornington Yacht Club’s Kevin Donnellan said it was a great result for the community and would make “70 per cent of the harbour safe�. The club and other harbour users have been lobbying government for almost 30 years to protect Mornington from big northerly storms. Two events in 1983 and 2008 sunk or washed onto beaches and rocks more than 30 boats each time. In February, Mornington Peninsula Shire rejected the yacht club’s plan to build a 197-boat marina in the harbour, which would have included a 210-metre wave screen running off at an angle from the pier’s end. Mr Donnellan said the club still wanted a wave wall “at least 50 to 80 metres long�. “We’d still like a refuelling facility, a pump out system for waste water from boats and a place for Volunteer Marine Rescue Mornington, coast guard and water police boats.� Mornington Environment Association president Jan Oliver welcomed the news. The harbour would be more sheltered from storms, she said. “Now we have to trust construction will not disturb the unique sea life under the pier.� Ms Oliver, a founder of the Marine Education Society of Australasia, said diving at the pier was one of the great experiences in Port Phillip. “We are lucky to have all these marine treasures – and

the pier, especially in this International Year of Marine Biodiversity.� When completed, the government will have spent about $18.5 million on the pier since August 2010. It was closed in April 2010 after a storm damaged piles and dislodged about 100 top deck planks. Two more storms in August and September – with winds of more than 60 knots – further weakened the iconic structure, a form of which has served the town for more than 150 years. In August 2010, Parks Victoria contractor K V Johnson Constructions of Carrum Downs started work on the middle, 53-metre section. It was scheduled to be completed by December, which was revised to April 2011 and then July. The delay was caused by bad weather. This work cost $3.5 million and involved replacing old wooden pylons with concrete ones and installing a three-piece reinforced concrete deck with timber planks on top. When the middle section was reopened to the public last winter, the outer section was left unconnected to the new section. In June 2011, The News reported the outer section was in danger of collapsing after engineers found 20 per cent of piles had failed or were about to fail and were not supporting the top deck. About half of the remaining 80 per cent were in “average condition� and the outer section was one big storm away from irreparable damage. Dr Napthine said “the full reconstruction of the 75-metre outer section and the installation of wave screens along the pier’s full 123-metre length� would provide protection for boaters. He said Victoria’s local ports were an important part of the state economy, generating more then $550 million each year through tourism, commercial fishing and recreational boating. The scope of the work has not been decided, but the outer section has about 125 piles. Divers would be hoping the work includes stairs and a platform near the water, items omitted when the middle section was rebuilt due to higher than expected costs. No date for completion of the work has been set.

Shire hitches $75,000 ride By Keith Platt MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire last month spent more than $25,000 on a bike “ride” that raised $6500 for the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria. The shire has a three-year agreement to provide $75,000 and “in-kind” support for the Arthurs Seat Bay 2 Bay Ride, which attracts about 1000 professional and amateur cyclists as well as families. Riders were charged $99 for the 113km course, $89 for the 65km course and $55 a person or $130 a family for the 20km course. Peninsula residents were offered a $10 discount on all rides and sponsors gave such items as sunglasses and T-shirts. While riders are encouraged to raise money for the Epilepsy Foundation, no part of their entry fees or the shire’s $25,000 was given to the foundation. A comprehensive website that provided many details of the Bay 2 Bay Ride devoted little space to promoting the foundation, although it displayed the Epilepsy Foundation logo. In the lead-up to the event the shire issued a news release on 16 April detailing the work of the Epilepsy Foundation and said “riders can choose to donate or fundraise for the epilepsy foundation”. Shire CEO Michael Kennedy was in a group of riders organised by the shire for a pre-event photo “opportunity” the following day at Arthurs Seat. Responding to emailed questions from The News, the shire stated: “Lisa Wilson, shire community and special events, advises: Shire contributes $25K (both cash and in-kind) to the event,

which is aimed at families, people with disabilities, professional riders, veterans and children the event aims to promote benefits of healthy lifestyle choices and active participation. “John Trevorrow, event organiser advises: Last year between 700 and 800 did the ride and this year we expect around 1100. “None of the ‘entry fee’ goes to Epilepsy but entrants are encouraged to donate and to get sponsored with all funds going to Epilepsy Foundation Victoria. This is the first year Epilepsy have been involved. At this stage approximately $3000 has been raised for Epilepsy.” The figure eventually jumped to $6500, according to the foundation’s development manager Jeremy Maxwell. Of this amount, $2800 was from riders and the rest was collected by volunteers at the event. While enthusiastic about the ride and Arthurs Seat State Park, Mr Maxwell said the Epilepsy Foundation had not received any money from sponsors. Further inquiries to the shire in the two weeks after the ride revealed the existence of the $75,000 three-year agreement plus “resources/officer time to assist with during and post event planning to ensure the ride is conducted safely and successfully”. On 15 May, after repeated requests for more details, the shire provided “information” from recreation and leisure manager Peter Gore. Mr Gore said the ride’s organiser Cycling Events Downunder “have a three-year grant with the shire

Trivia for wishes THE Mornington Peninsula branch of Make-A-Wish Australia is holding a trivia night at 7pm on Saturday 26 May in the Peninsula Community Theatre, Wilsons Rd, Mornington. It is one of several fundraising events held by the branch, which was formed in 2009 and has granted 30 wishes to peninsula children including trips to Disneyland, Gold Coast theme parks and a meeting with singer Christina Aguilera. Branch president Len Kelly said granting wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions provided hope, strength and joy. “A recent study showed granting wishes had a significant impact on the physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing of children,” he said. Tickets cost $20, tables of 10 available and there will be games and prizes provided by peninsula businesses. Details and bookings: Vicki Reid, 0421 542 912 (after 5pm).

(2011, 2012 and 2013)”. “They receive $25,000 each year, plus in-kind support (hire of marquee, stage and permit fee waivers) to run the event. “The officer time involved with the event is for the approval process and also approximately 3-4 meetings between the organisers and Lisa Wilson



prior to each event and this includes the debrief. “The funding is part of Priority Projects, which is part of the Annual Budget; the Annual Budget 2010 was adopted by Council on 26 July.” The 2011-12 budget adopted by council lists the Bay2Bay cost at $30,000.

MT Eliza’s new skate park in Wooralla Drive will be officially opened on Saturday 26 May with the first organised event – a Skate and BMX South Eastern League meeting for open male and female, under-16 and under-12 BMXers (register from 11am) and skaters (2pm). The opening from 1-2pm will feature a Moss Jam skate demo. A shuttle bus runs every 30 minutes from Mt Eliza Primary School, corner Nepean Highway and Wooralla Dve, as well as Mt Eliza Post Office.

Top gear needed for weed pull

CLEARING weeds has been taken to extremes by the Department of Sustainability and Environment with ropes and harnesses being used on cliffs between Frankston and Mt Eliza to reach outbreaks of the noxious bitou bush. Contractors with abseiling gear were hired to tackle the bitou along a 1.3-kilometre stretch of Crown Land between Olivers Hill in Frankston and the Daveys Bay Yacht Club – one of only two infestations in Victoria. DSE project coordinator Simon Denby said clearing the steep cliffs was part of a 10-year project. “We have the opportunity to remove this population of bitou bush for good because it is a relatively small and isolated population,” he said. “At the end of last year, bitou bush was removed from the top sections of the cliff and slope areas and replaced with 2000 native trees and shrubs to help stabilise the steep land.”

Bitou bush is listed among Australia’s top 20 worst weeds as it smothers native vegetation and eliminates native ecosystems. “One of the reasons bitou bush is problematic is that the seed and debris can spread easily so we are asking people not to remove any of the bitou bush plants themselves. DSE will provide assistance in removing it and provide replacement native plants.” Mr Denby said the plants would be cut off at the base and poisoned to minimise soil disturbance and then disposed of at quarantine landfill to prevent any spread of seeds. They would be replaced with fast-growing, deep-rooted native plants. The work at Frankston and Mt Eliza was part of a three-year national strategy and would be followed by seven years of monitoring.

Drugs a prescription for record help calls By Keith Platt FRANKSTON tops the list of 29 municipalities for ambulance callouts to patients suffering adverse reactions to prescription-type drugs. While alcohol remains the biggest reason for an ambulance to be called, Frankston comes first for problems caused by benzodiazepine, antidepressants, antipsychotics and opioid analgesics. On the plus side, Frankston has been beaten from the top spot it held in 2009-10 by Hume for other analgesicrelated ambulance attendances. The latest statistics on ambulances are in a report prepared by Turning Point and Alcohol Drug with the Health Department and Ambulance Victoria. The report illustrates how the misuse of drugs causes a drain on the public purse through the increased use ambulances and demands on police needed to help control violent drug users. The report groups ambulance callouts into 18 categories including legal drugs such as alcohol and the prescription drugs causing problems in Frankston, as well as cannabis, ecstasy, heroin, GHB, crystal methamphetamine and cocaine. More than 14,000 calls made for ambulances in Metropolitan Melbourne last year involved alcohol and pre-

scription drugs. In 2009-10 there were 331 alcoholrelated calls for ambulances in Frankston, a five per cent increase on the previous year. However, this was well below the 1024 calls in central Melbourne. The Mornington Peninsula had 208 calls, with noticeable peaks between November and February. The report highlights a 107 per cent increase in the use of crystal methamphetamine, also known as ice, with 220 incidents in 2010-11. Frankston had 14 calls involving crystal methamphetamine in 2010-11, or five per cent of the total for metropolitan Melbourne. However, when it came to benzodiazepine, Frankston retained its position as the municipality with the highest number of ambulance attendances: 198 in 2010-11, ahead of central Melbourne 195. The peninsula had 112 calls, coming 12th on the list. The other areas where Frankston led the 29 municipalities were antidepressants (76 calls; 18 fewer than the previous year, but still he highest for any municipality), antipsychotics (91) and opioid analgesics (37). The peninsula had 60 calls involving antidepressants, 42 for antipsychotics,

and 13 for opioid analgesics. Heroin was among the other drugs seeing increases in ambulance calls in 2010-11 (Frankston 30, the peninsula 12). Frankston was up from 23 in the previous year while the peninsula did not rank at all in 2009-10. Frankston, 18, and the peninsula, 6, both recorded increases in calls for help over the use of GBH. Anticonvulsants saw 16 calls from Frankston in 2010 and 12 from the peninsula Frankston had 59 calls involving cannabis and the peninsula 47, both up on the previous year. The proportion of ecstasy-related calls was also up, with Frankston having 10 and the peninsula 8. Neither municipality had ambulance calls about cocaine. Across Melbourne the figures show increases of more than 10 per cent in ambulance calls for abuses of alcohol, cannabis, amphetamines and crystal methamphetamine. Turning Point director Professor Dan Lubman said an all-community approach was needed to tackle the issue. “Government, health bodies, law enforcement agencies and even local residents and businesses can all play an important role in finding solutions to the challenges we are facing.”

Football tragedy on national TV By Mike Hast THE story of Mornington’s 1892 football team tragedy is set for a national audience. The 120th anniversary service at 10am on Sunday at the memorial near the end of Main St, Mornington, will be covered by an ABC TV news crew and is likely to appear on the 7pm news nationally on Sunday night. Also, ABC national sports presenter Paul Kennedy has made a documentary about the black day in the town’s history when 15 members of the football team drowned off Mt Eliza while returning from a match at Mordialloc aboard the sailing boat Process. The Ghosts of Australian Football will go to air on Friday 25 May on ABC News 24 for a special episode of the Contact Sport segment. Mr Kennedy has also made a four-minute story about the tragic event, which will air on ABC News Breakfast (ABC1) on Monday morning between 8-8.30am. The story will be on the ABC website after the radio show. The Sunday service will see the unveiling of a new interpretive sign, which will be placed near the football tragedy memorial near the intersection of the Esplanade and Main St. The sign is a joint effort of Mornington Peninsula Shire and Mornington and District Historical Society. Mr Kennedy is also writing a book about the disaster. The senior television journalist told The News highlights of the doco included an interview with Janet Groves, a relative of Charles Ernest Allchin, one of eight teenagers who drowned. “She reads aloud a letter from Sarah Allchin to her son Tom in Queensland that describes what happened,” Mr Kennedy said. “I interviewed two football historians – Dr Rob Hess and Dr Matthew Klugman – about football in the 1890s, including styles of play and the

behaviour of the barrackers (not a title to wear proudly back then). “I have interviewed Sorrento old boat expert Tim Phillips and fifth generation fisherman Doug Beazley on a boat similar in size, shape and function to the Process. “We went for a sail on Port Phillip to get the feel for the trip. Tim and Doug gave me their opinion as to what happened and who was to blame for the accident.” The doco includes the trumpet player from the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra playing The Ship That Never Returned, which was played on the boat on the way to the match in Mordialloc. An actor reads classic parts of Love’s Tribute, the book by Alice Caldwell, whose family lost three sons. “This very moving, I believe, and brings to life in some small way a story that is not told often enough to a wider audience. It was Australia’s worst sporting tragedy and should be easily recalled by lovers or sport and history, out of respect to the sons or our pioneers.” Earlier this month, Janet Groves told The News the tragedy affected many of the families in the small community. “Ten children were left fatherless,” Mrs Groves said. “Reverend James Caldwell lost three sons; Joseph Grover, a builder, lost a son and a brother; and the boat owner and experienced skipper Charles Hooper and his 14-year-old son both drowned.”  The 120th anniversary service is at 10am on Sunday 20 May at the memorial, corner Main St and the Esplanade. Details: 5977 0027 or 5975 2958. The historical society is reissuing the booklet The Pelican Reef Disaster by C H Allchin.

Agencies align on transport A NEW multi-organisation transport group aiming to improve access to services and facilities was launched in Mornington on Monday. Mornington Peninsula Community Transport Network brings together 12 agencies, linking their vehicles, staff, volunteers and funds to support better access for people on the peninsula with limited transportation options. MP David Morris said the network would better use existing vehicles and resources to improve access to work, learning, health and social opportunities. He said Mornington Peninsula Transport Connections had received a $75,000 Transport Connections Innovation Fund grant to establish and implement the network.

An additional $25,000 comes from the Bendigo Bank as well as in-kind support from some partner agencies. “A vehicle and volunteer register will be established to pool existing resources and enable partner agencies to contribute to and borrow available resources – both vehicles and people,” Mr Morris said. Agencies in the network include peninsula health service providers and social support agencies, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Brotherhood of St Laurence, Peninsula Support Services, Peninsula GP Network, Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Primary Care Partnership, Bentleigh Bayside Community Health, and TransAccess Mobility Support Services.

Helping out: Above, Sue Slater and Bronwyn van der Merche with district administrator Sao Sary and workshop participants. Centre, dragging a cart of resources to the workshop along a dusty unmade road at Tropeanproulet. Far right, a schoolyard in Sampov Loun district of Cambodia.

Teaching on the borderline By Tony Murrell FEW will brave the bone-jarring, threehour drive to a remote Cambodian village near the Thai border to pioneer professional development workshops for Khmer teachers. Even fewer volunteers, who pay their own way to Cambodia, will stay three days in dusty surroundings where accommodation and places to eat are, at best, basic. But the experience is “a privilege and a thrill” for retired secondary school principal Sue Slater, of Mornington, and her friend, retired assistant principal Bronwyn van der Merche, of Frankston. The two women volunteer with notfor-profit Teachers Across Borders Australia (TAB), using their skills to help raise education standards with workshops for the mostly poorly trained Khmer teachers in the Cambodian provinces. TAB Australia executive director and founder Brian Allen, a resident of Rosebud, estimates workshops in three provinces over the past six years have impacted on more than 100,000 pupils. The former primary school principal candidly describes TAB programs as under resourced, limited in reach, but effective nevertheless. “The Wheeler Foundation provided funding for people to assess our programs in Cambodia and they found that what we are doing is making a difference,” Mr Allen said. “We are challenging Cambodians to rethink their teaching practice.” The programs guide teachers away

from teaching rote learning to techniques that make pupils think for themselves. Mr Allen says rote learning perpetuates submissiveness by children who are often sold or traded by parents into jobs, including prostitution. At least eight teachers from Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula have volunteered with TAB over six years. Some have been to Cambodia up to six times. These are not junkets to see a developing country on the cheap: beside paying their own way, the Aussie teachers’ out-of-pocket expenses have included attendance payments to Khmer teachers and school directors who could not otherwise afford the time for professional development. During holidays most teachers in Cambodia must find other jobs to feed their families. Their $28 to $50-a-month salary does not extend to holiday pay. Support for the program has come from the Rotary clubs of Rosebud-Rye and Camberwell, Soroptimists International and the Peace Fund. Since 2005 Soroptimists International has supported Teachers Across Borders by funding 16 teachers from the remote Hun Sen Santepheap primary school, Sampov Loun District, to attend workshops in Battambang, Cambodia’s third-largest city nearly 300km from the capital Phnom Penh. Soroptimists paid for the two teachers’ accommodation plus a stipend to staff attending workshops and some resources used in the workshops. The far-flung school is in the border village of Tropeanproulet, straddling a

pot-holed, unmade and busy main road jammed with trucks trading goods between Cambodia and Thailand. Sue Slater and Bronwyn van der Merche, both members of Mornington Peninsula Soroptimists International, visited the village in January. It was Ms Slater’s sixth visit to Cambodia, once as part of the Wheeler Foundation review team “We were keen to continue TAB’s work and build on support from Soroptimists International by trialling a professional development model of workshops at a remote school,” Ms Slater said. What they encounter is challenging: a school of 1352 pupils with more than 50 to a class. Nine of the 24 teachers did not reach Year 9. Outside, the thick, dry-season dust coats everything and rubble is everywhere. Roadworks and drainage are haphazard. More than 75 per cent of Sampov Loun citizens live in poverty. Mr Sao Sary, an administrator from the district education office, underscores the remoteness of the border district as well as a paucity of educational resources when he tells the Australian women that this is the first training workshop ever for teachers in Sampov Loun district. “Education in the provinces is hampered by poorly paid untrained staff, lack of leadership, poor attendance – particularly in harvest season – and poorly resourced schools,” Ms Slater said. “Some lack basic facilities such as toilets, running water or a well.

“There is little school security: partially fenced grounds mean that livestock and vandals cause regular damage and child kidnapping is not uncommon. “Student completion at lower secondary is a major issue with grade nine completion rates less than 30 per cent in some rural schools. “Community participation is limited because parents are generally poor rural workers with no time to spare.” But there is a big plus, too, says the former principal. However formidable the difficulties appear, the Khmer teachers are very keen to improve their skills and their schools. “Teachers reacted positively to our workshops, concentrating on consistent classroom practice across the school as well as teaching and learning techniques,” Ms Slater said. “We hope to return to continue work at the school and also hope that teachers complete future TAB workshop programs in Battambang.” Ongoing development of the school library and online coaching support for teachers are among strategies to help improve teaching and learning at Hun Sen Santepheap. Over the past six years Teachers Across Borders has run 15 six- to eightday workshops in three Cambodian provinces – Battambang, Kampong Thom and Kampong Cham where they have trained more than 2000 Khmer teachers and directors. At Battambang, the Khmers say that TAB workshops are the only profes-


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?

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

sional development they can access. Professional development opportunities are limited and unplanned because schools generally rely on nongovernment organisations for training. Teachers Across Borders Australia had its start when executive director Brian Allen took up a challenge from a United States woman he met while visiting South East Asia for World Vision in 2006. “She had started Teachers Across Borders in the US, suggesting I could do the same in Australia. “I had never seen such poverty. When you see it – when you’re there it’s a whole different world.” Mr Allen was shocked into action. Thirty people responded to an article about Mr Allen’s ambition in Education Age in August 2006. By Christmas that year, TAB’s work was formalised in a project agreement with the Cambodian Ministry of Education: the new organisation was committed to provide professional development for teachers and school directors for a 10-year period. The committee of management is already contemplating the organisation’s future beyond the decade-long accord. Mr Allen’s personal dream is to spread TAB’s work to Australia’s near neighbours like East Timor and the Pacific Islands, depending on need. TAB’s status as a registered charity in Australia means that donations are tax deductible. Details: Email or online at www.

Young musos grab mic THE fifth Lineup event for aspiring professional musicians is at Cube 37 at Frankston Arts Centre on Sunday evening 27 May. Lineup is a musical mentoring program created by Mt Eliza-based The Little Theatre Company and has been dubbed “an affray of young musicians”. The first one was in late 2010 and one was held in March. Others will be held in August and December. The four events in 2012 are being hosted by James Reyne, former Australian Crawl singer and now acclaimed solo artist. Sally Baillieu of the theatre company said the events “develop and showcase young musicians, and give them a point of entry to move toward a career in the music industry”. “We started Lineup because of the many talented young performers we knew in the region and how difficult it is for them to take the next step and play outside their bedrooms and homes. “The music industry can be an intimidating and daunting prospect. There is not enough encouragement for musical artists outside Melbourne

‘Rebel’ pool meet attracts 250 By Mike Hast MORE than 250 people packed Rosebud Memorial Hall on Friday 4 May for a passionate discussion about the shire council’s proposed aquatic centre on the foreshore at Rosebud. People came from all over the peninsula to voice their opinions about the controversial $28 million project. It was the first meeting about the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (dubbed SPA by the shire) since the shire was given permission to build on the foreshore by state environment minister Ryan Smith. The shire had been trying since 2005 to get government permission to build on the foreshore, but had been blocked by the Department of Sustainability and Environment supported by various environment ministers. The meeting was organised not by the shire, but by two rebel councillors on the Port Phillip side, Graham Pittock whose ward is based around Dromana and Tim Rodgers of Sorrento Ward. Against the wishes of the shire’s executive and six other councillors, they decided the people should be heard on SPA after a majority of their colleagues in March voted to not have public meetings about the project. More than 50 people had their three minutes on the microphone, perhaps the most comprehensive display of people power ever seen in the shire since its formation in 1994. A big majority said it was good to

have the chance to express their views and praised Crs Pittock and Rodgers. The meeting was recorded and speeches were gathered by the two councillors, who will present a report to the council and put the information on Facebook at “Seawinds Ward”. Speakers were required to register prior to the meeting, and more than 40 did so, but Crs Pittock and Rodgers received a large number of requests just before the meeting started and handed out numbered tickets. Everyone who wanted to speak got the chance to. When the meeting started, Cr Pittock looked at the full seats and people standing around the edges and said it was community grass roots at work. Cr Rodgers said it was gratifying to see so many people. “This is one of the biggest issues of the next 10 years [in the shire]. It’s not often this council spends $30 million.” He said he had put up the motion to conduct a roadshow that had been rejected by six of the 11 councillors. It was important for all peninsula residents to find out about the project. After the meeting, Cr Rodgers said more than 70 per cent of speakers were opposed to the foreshore pool site. Pro-foreshore speakers said Rosebud had been promised the pool seven years ago and the town needed an iconic seaside tourism drawcard to revive the area. Rosebud was a struggle street town, one speaker said, and it would help to

have the pool near the shopping centre. It was only a small part of the foreshore “which is there to be used by people”. Another said SPA would help solve unemployment and keep young people in the area. Rosebud was a dowdy town, said one Rosebud resident; the ugliest place on the peninsula and it needed a spark; a place of high visibility on the foreshore to attract tourists who would use

it during summer only. Other speakers said the pool would be a great asset for health and fitness. Many anti-foreshore speakers, including environmentalists, said the site selected by the shire would be subject to inundation due to the effects of climate change. Public buildings should no longer be erected on precious foreshore given what we know about storm surges, one

said. The coastal strip, beaches and reserves were the shire’s most precious assets, said another. Other speakers questioned the cost of the project, estimated by the shire to be $28 million. Would it cause rates to rise and other projects to be put on the backburner? The shire is working on plans for SPA and they will go on public exhibition, although no date has been provided.

Councillor sets sights on Rio By Keith Platt MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillor Reade Smith has launched a public campaign to raise $5000 to attend two environment themed conferences in Brazil. Donors will be able to tell “friends & associates that today you have personally contributed to reducing the negative human impacts on this planet”, Cr Smith states on the website Funding 4Learning. The website, run by Spanish-based 4People Media, gives instructions on how to raise money “destined to finance an educational venture”. While there is no charge to list a campaign on the Funding4Learning website, it will charge five per cent if Cr Smith succeeds in raising $5000. On Monday last week, with 32 days left, he had received $159 from six donors. Cr Smith is no stranger to overseas conferences, having attended the third World Conference of Biosphere Reserves in Madrid, Spain, in 2008 and, with Cr Tim Rodgers in 2009 the United Nations climate change conference in Copenhagen and its “global civil society counterpart”, KlimaForum09. It cost ratepayers $10,000 to send the two councillors to Copenhagen. Cr Smith extended his trip to include a “selffunded study tour of submarine tourism and national galleries in Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Paris and Barcelona as well as the Port of Rotterdam”. In his request for donations on the Funding4Learning website, Cr Smith says he is a volunteer facilitator and trustee with the Australian-based environment and social change organisation Be The Change and “hosting” the development of a Transition Towns network on the peninsula. The Transition Network – based in the UK – describes 2006 to 2010 as “a period marked by the failures of Copenhagen, an increasing sense of continuing economic contraction and further reports from highly influential sources on the threats from fossil fuel depletion”. On their return from Copenhagen, Cr Smith and Rodgers, among other things, recommended the shire set vehicle fleet targets, install energyefficient street lighting; set greenhouse emission reduction targets; establish a renewable energy target; increase renewable energy use; and protect biodiversity. Cr Smith, the councillor for Cerberus Ward, is a director of the Mornington Peninsula and Western Port Biosphere Reserve Foundation, a member of the Municipal Association of Victoria’s strategic environment advisory group and the shire’s representative on the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives’ (ICLEI) cities for climate protection program. He has announced he will not seek re-election in October, but will run an internet campaign to keep an eye on candidates and the election. Cr Smith served three terms in Mt Eliza Ward before moving to Tyabb and winning Cerberus

Ward where he is completing his second term. On the Funding4Learning website Cr Smith said a $1 contribution would receive “a big, warm, honest thank you”. “I am passionate about the importance and need to create an environmentally sustainable, socially just and spiritually fulfilling human presence on this planet and am driven by the need to help others to find their passion to be the change they want to see in this world,” Cr Smith states. “This is why I wish to attend at both the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives World Congress in Belo Horizonte in Brazil and the Earth Summit in Rio in June. “Both events will bring together many experts in the climate, environment and social justice arena and therefore the learning opportunities are vast.” Cr Smith says he is frustrated by “the current Australian consumption driven culture … hindering our ability as a nation to make any cultural and behavioral changes that will reduce our impacts on the environment”. Describing his occupation as a farmhand at Peninsula Aqua Growers (a commercial hydroponic business owned by fellow councillor Anne Shaw and her husband Chris), Cr Smith says he is saving toward his planned trip to Brazil. “I do hope that, with the information and knowledge I gain at these events, I can educate and inspire people with the same passions and desires to create a better future for our children and grandchildren. “I also hope that you are as equally passionate to help me to achieve this fundraising goal.”

Celebrating organ’s return THE refurbishment of Mornington’s St Peter’s Church organ will be celebrated with a concert at 2.30pm on Sunday in the church. Accomplished organist John Mallinson will play works by Charles Stanford, J S Bach and Cesar Franck. Until retirement, Mr Mallinson was organist at St Patrick’s Cathedral in Melbourne for 24 years and director of music at Camberwell Grammar. Also performing will be the Peninsula Piano Trio – Peninsula School teachers Simon Stone (piano), Megan Smithies (cello) and year 12 student Ben Spiers (violin) performing works by Mendelssohn and Shostakovitch. Church warden Richard Clarke said it was hoped the organ would be ready for St Peter’s 150th anniversary last year, but organ builder Australian Pipe Organs had a heavy workload.

Mr Clarke said the church was using St Peter’s as a venue for younger and aspiring musicians and other artists to showcase their talents. “Our Afternoon Concert @ St Peter’s series also lets the community see the depth of musical talent on the peninsula,” he said. Three successful concerts this year including one with the Australian Welsh Male Choir before it travelled to the United Kingdom had been encouraging, he said. There would be two more concerts this year and a series next year.  Afternoon Concert @ St Peter’s, 2.30pm, Sunday 20 March, St Peter’s Church, 3 Queen St, Mornington. Afternoon tea following the concert. Tickets $20 adult, $15 concession. Book on 5975 0198, email or at the door.

Storms bring final flight for albatross Appealing: Captains Colin and Anne Lane of the Mornington Salvation Army receive donations for the Red Shield Appeal. Picture: Yanni

The Salvos are appealing THE federal budget has placed emphasis on this year’s Salvation Army Red Shield appeal. The Salvos have set a target of $81.5 million – $25 million in Victoria – to be collected before the end of June. The annual doorknock will be held in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula over the weekend of 19-20 May. As well as appealing for donations, the Salvation Army is also looking for volunteers to rattle its tins and collect the money. After Wednesday’s budget was revealed by Treasurer Wayne Swan, the Salvation Army “welcomed” some measures, but expressed concern about there being “no real relief for the most

disadvantaged … We are particularly concerned about those most vulnerable who are already barely surviving on income support payments like Newstart or Youth Allowance. “While the lack of housing affordability continues and housing stress has become an accepted part of people’s lives, those on the nation’s lowest incomes need our help more than ever,” its budget reaction statement read. “Sadly missing in this budget is the relatively meagre $50 a week increase to these allowances recommended by the Henry Tax Review and supported by almost every agency and peak body connected with those who are doing it tough.”

WAS it shot or a victim of a storm? Birdwatchers on the southern peninsula are awaiting results of an X-ray to determine the final moments of a shy albatross (Thalassarche cauta) found dead on a Blairgowrie roadside. Looking as much like road kill as anything, the size and grandeur of the bird led to its body being preserved for posterity and scientific examination. The story of its arrival in Blairgowrie remains a mystery, although thanks to a metal band on its leg we know it was last touched by humans 27 days before its death. The shy albatross had been banded by albatross biologist Dr Rosemary Gales 224 kilometres away on 29 March at Albatross Island, off Tasmania. Dr Gales classed it as a nestling, possibly 16 years old, but did not know its gender. The Bass Strait island is an 18-hectare nature reserve and home to an estimated 5000 pairs of shy albatross, about 40 per cent of the world’s population. When it crashed to earth in Blairgowrie, the albatross wearing band 132-38674 weighed about three kilograms and a 2.2 metre wingspan. Nepean Conservation Group president Ursula de Jong spotted the dead bird on Anzac Day morning. “When we jumped out of the car, we found it still warm, but having lost a lot of blood, dead,” she said. “It was such a beautiful bird, in per-

fect condition. We moved it off the road and found one small wound – consistent with a gunshot wound – on the side of its head. There was no exit hole. “We photographed it, noted its tag details to post and were going to prepare a burial place. It disappeared before we could do so.” It later emerged that the bird had also been spotted by Dr de Jong’s near neighbour, Ben Muir. Mr Muir – also intrigued by the bird’s fate – sent the band to the Australian Bird and Bat Banding Scheme, run by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities in Canberra, and kept its body in a fridge so it could be preserved and displayed by the Melbourne Museum. Vet Dr Katrina Gregory diagnosed a broken wing and affirmed 132-38674 was a “perfect specimen”. Her report stated: “The bird was found to be well nourished and ap-

peared to be ‘fat’. Recently deceased. Neck was fractured. LS beak bruising. RS mid shaft radius-ulna fracture.” The cause of death has been recorded as “unknown”. “This amazing story of recovery leaves us wondering what could have happened to this shy albatross,” Dr de Jong told The News. “What had its journey been like across Bass Strait? Weather conditions had been poor: gale force winds of 35 knots, gusting over 39 knots. Conditions on Bass Strait may have been fierce. “It had been windy for three days, unabating. Where was it going? How did it die? “Albatrosses can live up to 100 years. An autopsy has been ruled out as it would damage the bird. We await X-rays from the museum to determine what caused its death. “We mourn this life cut short. RIP shy albatross 132-38674.” Keith Platt

Fair cop: Sergeant Ian Christensen and vet Heather Kingston retrieve and later release the seal found wandering in a Rye street 500 metres from the beach. Pictures: David Farthing

Freedom for arresting seal By Julie Farthing THE cries of a young Australian fur seal startled residents of a street in Rye more than 500 metres from the beach last week. Residents of Rex Ave were woken early on Saturday morning 5 May by a strange noises and discovered the young seal wandering in their front gardens. The seal pup did not appear to be injured, but was obviously disoriented. Later investigation showed it had crossed Point Nepean Road before travelling inland up a significant hill, no mean feat for a creature on flippers.

Fearing the worst if the seal wandered onto busy Melbourne Rd, residents herded the animal into a safe spot, then made several unsuccessful attempts to contact wildlife authorities. They then called Rye police station and Sergeant Ian Christensen was soon on the scene with a divisional van. Sergeant Christensen also tried to contact local animal rescue people. He then contacted Adrian Howard, senior zookeeper at Melbourne Zoo, and received advice about how to safely capture the seal and where to release it. Heather Kingston, a veterinarian of Rye Veterinary Clinic, arrived and she

and Sergeant Christensen scooped up the seal in a blanket and carried it to the police van. It was driven to a Rye boat ramp, the rear doors were opened and the seal jumped from the van and walked down the ramp and into the water. It was last seen dipping and diving in the waves, seemingly none the worse for wear after its big adventure. Sergeant Christensen said he was surprised to receive a call about a seal at large. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have seen seals off the beach before, but never this far inland,â&#x20AC;? he said. It is not known why the seal ventured so far inland.

During the previous night a fur seal of similar age and appearance was found off the beach in Dromana. After seeing photos of the Rye rescue, Mr Howard said the seal appeared to be in reasonable condition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is likely to be the same animal that was found in Dromana. It is a very small animal for its age, possibly an underdeveloped yearling.â&#x20AC;? Mr Howard said anyone finding a seal in any location on the peninsula should not attempt to pick it up.

Putting last touches to lifesavers’ home

Easy does it: Volunteers use a wide-wheeled wheelchair on the sand at Pt Leo during the Disabled Surfers Association event in March.

Gala night to help charities DISADVANTAGED young people in Mornington, Hastings, Crib Point and Rosebud West look set to benefit from money raised at this year’s Mayoral Charity Gala Dinner. Foundation 59 is one of two charities chosen by the mayor Cr Frank Martin to receive money raised from the dinner. The foundation’s website says it “works to support at-risk or chronically disadvantaged young Australians on the southern peninsula in all areas of education, personal welfare, personal safety and emotional and physical wellbeing”. The other beneficiary is the Mornington Peninsula branch of the Disabled Surfers Association, which has already received $5500 from the shire. Foundation 59 says Hastings, Crib Point and Rosebud West are among Victoria’s 20 most disadvantaged postcodes. “Rosebud West now has the dubious honour of

being in number two position. So many kids from Dromana use the telephone counselling service Kids Helpline that it puts the Dromana and Safety Beach area as number four on their list.” “The new surprise is the back of Mornington where, in the sprawling housing development, there are young families with children with almost no community infrastructure. “All these communities can also report significant numbers of families who have been living off welfare for up to three generations.” The dinner is at Mornington Racing Club with entertainment by Ray Johns and his Red Hill Baker Boys swing and jazz band and MC Tony Barber. There will be live and silent auctions, pre-dinner drinks, canapés, three-course meal and drinks. Tickets are $110 a person or $1000 for a table of 10. Call 5987 3078 or visit www.

DROMANA Bay Life Saving Club’s long-awaited new home is nearing completion. It is hoped the $1 million building on the foreshore near the scout hall will be ready for the club’s 15th birthday celebrations on 16 June. The club will go from boiled lollies to chocolates after spending recent years operating out of two shipping containers. Club treasurer Megan Goldsworthy said members were rapt with their headquarters and there was no shortage of people to complete the project, which involved painting inside and out with landscaping work to follow. Money for the two-storey clubhouse came from Mornington Peninsula Shire ($260,000), the state government’s Community Safety Emergency Support Program and Sports and Recreation Victoria ($700,000) and the club’s coffers ($40,000).

About $70,000 from other sources, including the shire, had been spent in recent years on planning, architects, engineers, an Aboriginal heritage study and legal fees when the site of the clubhouse was challenged in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Ms Goldsworthy said 90-95 per cent of money spent on the building stayed on the peninsula. A lift from a Melbourne company cost about $45,000. She said the building did not have a commercial kitchen and scotched suggestions there would be a public restaurant or cafe on the first floor, as had been rumoured. The clubhouse is likely to be officially opened in November during Water Safety Week. Dromana Bay is known for its Dromana Bay Pier Swim in February. Mike Hast

Biosphere’s $2.2m for habitat THE Western Port Biosphere Foundation has won federal government funding of $2.26 million over six years to connect and improve habitat corridors. The money comes from the Biodiversity Fund, whose citation stated: “Western Port Biosphere (a UNESCO-designated reserve) includes two large Ramsar wetlands and hundreds of small but key biodiversity reserves in a fragmented urban, peri-urban and rural coastal region of southeast Australia threatened by climate change and human population growth. “Its vegetation types are under-represented in reserves nationally. It has many threatened vegetative communities and species protected by international, national, and state legislation.

“A multi-stakeholder steering committee will develop a new regional biodiversity action plan, enhance key reserves, revegetate landscape gaps to establish habitat links, improve low-cost integrated pest control, and provide and audit carbon storage with new enabling systems.” The Biosphere Foundation receives funding from Frankston, Mornington Peninsula, Casey, Cardinia and Bass Coast councils as well as Melbourne Water, Parks Victoria, and Port Phillip and Westernport Catchment Management Authority. Gillian Collins, the Frankston Round Table director of the biosphere foundation, said she was “very excited about what the grant will enable us to do for our natural environment in the region”.

Set and forget freehold

DON’T go for second-best, go for this very well-known and popular Mornington business. Operating for 22 years, the salon trades 5½ days a week and has a regular clientele. A long lease is available and the rent is reasonable. The shop measures 60 square metres and has six cutting stations. For ease of changeover, senior staff are willing to continue on with the new owners.

HERE is a rare opportunity to purchase a freehold business with a three-bedroom residence as part of the sale. Set over two levels, the apartment on the top floor and shop at ground level measure 200 square metres in total. The tenant is Peninsula Pantry, which has three years remaining on its current lease with a further 3 x 3-year option.

OPERATING out of near-new premises, this Indian restaurant has 15 years remaining on its lease. A set of bifold doors open onto a patio area, with an outlook across parklands to the foreshore, which creates extra dining space during the warmer months. The restaurant has seating for 150 with scope to increase this to 200, which is in line with the current liquor licence. The business lends itself to corporate lunches and dinners with a full sound system, projector and visual display units, which are all included in the substantial chattels list. Opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner.

VERY popular with locals and visitors in the busier summer months, including many campers who come to the area, the Balnarring Beach General Store sells takeaway food and various mixed lines plus coffee. Stock is also carried for camping and fishing. Current takings are about $8000 a week and still showing growth potential. Set directly behind the shop is an adjoining four-bedroom home, which would serve as the owner’s residence and is included as part of the lease of the business. The store is being sold on a walk in, walk out basis with all fixtures, fittings and stock included.

The group then travelled to the US Space & Rocket Centre in Huntsville, Alabama where the Advanced Space Academy is located. The students spent six days training to be either a Pilot or a Mission Specialist. This involved completing numerous activities such as rocketry, high and low ropes courses, scuba diving, g-force, gyroscope rides and space experiments. 7KH\KDGWROHDUQWRĂ \DVSDFHVKXWWOHDQGSHUIRUP simulated missions such as deploying satellites into space.

Keyhole hernia repair Macular degeneration What is a hernia? An inguinal or femoral hernia is a weakness or defect in the abdominal wall in the groin area. Internal organs may push through the weakness or defect, causing discomfort, pain and a noticeable bulge. The anatomy of a hernia can be compared to a bulge in the inner tube of a tyre. When the tyre is damaged, the inner tube pushes and bulges through the opening if the tyre. Similarly, when a hernia occurs, the inner layer of the abdominal wall may push against and through the abdominal wall defect. In some cases, the hernia may cause only slight discomfort. In other cases, a hernia may block digestion and may cause severe pain requiring immediate medical attention. How can you get a hernia? Some hernias may be acquired hernias while others are caused by a congenital weakness, which means a weakness that one was born with. Acquired hernia may be caused by lifting heavy objects, extreme weight gain or persistent coughing. What can be done about a hernia? Whether your hernia is congenital or acquired, surgery is the only way to repair a hernia.

Inguinal and femoral hernia repairs are the most commonly performed hernia surgeries. In Victoria, about 10,000 hernia procedures are performed each year, but only a small percentage are done by keyhole method. Why is keyhole hernia repair recommended? Keyhole hernia repair allows a return to normal activity in a few days. Incision length is 0.6cm to 1.3cm. Recuperative pain is minimal, and the risk of the hernia coming back is very low. Traditional hernia repair means a return to normal activity in 3-5 weeks. Incision length is 7cm to

15cm, and recuperative pain can be significant. The risk of the hernia coming back is also low. In conclusion Keyhole hernia repair minimises post-operative discomfort and scarring, promotes faster healing, allowing for a much quicker return to normal duties. The three surgeons at LAPSurgery Australia have performed more than 3500 keyhole hernia repairs over the past 12 years. Ask your doctor for a referral to LAPSurgery Australia Phone 9760 2777 for an appointment.

a hereditary condition MACULAR Degeneration Awareness Week is from 27 May-2 June. Research released for the awareness week shows Australians significantly underestimate the role of family history in developing macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness and vision loss in the nation. Bentons Square optometrist John Old says: “All those at risk, people over 50 or with a family history of macular degeneration, should have their eyes tested and macula checked. “Family history is a risk factor, just as it is with other conditions such as heart disease and breast cancer. This is why it is critical for family members to also have their eyes tested and macula checked. “We also want Australians to know macular degeneration

is not a normal part of ageing. “Never ignore any changes in vision and always seek help immediately as early detection can be critical to saving sight.” Research shows there is a 50 per cent chance of developing macular degeneration when a family history of the disease is present. More than two million Australians over the age of 50 are unaware that having a parent with

macular degeneration increases their chances of developing the disease. Research shows that one in seven Australians over the age of 50 have some evidence of macular degeneration. There are simple steps everyone can take to reduce their risk of developing the condition. These include having an eye test and adopting a healthy lifestyle and eating foods that are good for eye health, which

include fish and dark green leafy and coloured vegetables. “All Australians should make their family’s macular health a priority by having their eyes tested and macula checked,” Mr Old said. “Everyone should talk to their family about risk reduction measures.” For more information or to book an eye examination, call John Old Optometrist on 5975 5720.

Keeping fit feet for life YOUR feet are one of your most important and relied on assests, yet they are often the most neglected. Nearly all of our physical activities involve the feet, that is standing, walking, running, sports, work and recreational activities, but your feet also play an important part in your mental and emotional health. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move around freely and easily to do all the things you need and want to do in life, it can take a huge toll on your mental and emotional wellbeing.

Feet also can be the cause of all sorts of physical problems in other parts of the body including ankle, knee, hip and back. Bad foot posture can continually pull your body out of alignment. The feet can be one of the most indicative signs of an individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health. Early symptoms of diabetes, arthritis, nerve and circulatory problems can often show initially in the feet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so foot ailments can be the first sign of more serious medical problems. There are many good reasons to look after your feet and ensure you have any foot or leg pain checked by an experienced professional. Paul Dowie, one of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foremost sports podiatrists and founder of Foot + Leg Pain Clinics said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to put up with foot and leg pain; there is nearly always a simple solution if you get the right treatment and advice.

Twitter: how I loathe you By Stuart McCullough FOR people who genuinely believe in their heart of hearts that Twitter is important and a legitimate part of our broader social fabric, look away now â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for no earthly good can possibly come from reading any further. If you think the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twitterverseâ&#x20AC;? is greatest thing to happen since people stopped eating sliced bread, pack up your eyes and take them somewhere else without delay. Shoo! Shoo, I say to you! For everybody else, huddle up, come close and listen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I think Twitter is a colossal waste of time that threatens to undo much of the good work evolution has done up until now. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stupid, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nasty and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s narcissistic. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a medium that not so much pitches itself to the lowest common denominator as plunges headlong beyond zero and deep into negative territory. Phew! There is no way on earth that I could have gotten all that out in only 140 characters. Or, if I did, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to sacrifice a whole bunch of perfectly innocent vowels and end up with â&#x20AC;&#x153;twttr, u sckâ&#x20AC;? or something equally horrifying. Not for me. I much prefer to say too much than to risk saying too little. When it comes to writing, give me rolling hills of unedited rambling in which I can hike for hours and mountains of prose as dense as the person who wrote it. Anger needs plenty of room to operate and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d much rather enjoy my hatred in all its unedited and splendid glory. That said, despite the ubiquitous nature of all that is Twitter, I deeply sus-

pect that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know what it is. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve no idea if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something you get on, like a bike or Facebook or, for that matter, a morphine drip; or if, instead, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not something you choose so much as it chooses you. Whether, much like the priesthood, it is less a choice than it is a calling. Perhaps thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why they have â&#x20AC;&#x153;followersâ&#x20AC;? on Twitter. For me, it remains a process so mysterious that I have found myself starting to resent it. It now seems that I have reached a stage in my life that something apparently so vital to the rest of humanity has left me wholly untouched. Despite my Twitter-free existence, I otherwise manage to lead a fairly normal life. Or as normal as is reasonably possible under the circumstances. I get up, go for a run, eat breakfast and go to work. The next day, the

whole carnival repeats itself. At no time do I find my text finger beginning to itch or become gripped with the desire to find out what happening in the Twitterverse. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I like the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twitterverseâ&#x20AC;? much. It sounds like a galaxy of idiots. But the term is simply one of many corruptions of the term Twitter, all of which are designed to make it sound much more important than it actually is. There are tons of variations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; tweets (noun), twittering (verb), etc. But despite this, those who participate in Twitter are not referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;twitsâ&#x20AC;?. I would have thought it was obvious. And incredibly accurate. Perhaps Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the wrong person to ask â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I have never been that quick to adapt to technology. After all, I still eye the microwave

with suspicion and regard the internet as a form of witchcraft. Not since I got burned by the whole laser disc debacle of the mid-1990s have I been able to trust new technology (thanks for nothing, DVD!). In fact, technology is a cruel mistress â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the kind that boils your rabbit in crystal clear high definition in a tragically redundant format, but a cruel mistress nevertheless. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, I belong to a generation that gleefully disregarded vinyl records in the belief that they were as useless as a mouthful of marbles in favour of getting our hands on as many compact discs as we could, only to find 20 years down the track that long-playing records are treated with a reverence more befitting a relic of a lost Incan civilisation while CDs are â&#x20AC;&#x201C; once theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re loaded onto your iPod

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only good for landfill. So perhaps I can be excused if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a little bitter, a little gun-shy. Technology has made a fool of me before, and I am yet to forgive it. Perhaps thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I despise Twitter so much. I find it deeply ironic that so many musicians are devoted to Twitter. Lady Gaga has more than 10 million followers on Twitter, but is yet to release a decent single. Or, at least, one that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound eerily like Madonnaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Express Yourself (which is itself a pretty weak-at-the-knees facsimile of Respect Yourself by the Staple Singers). For those who love Twitter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who tweet and retweet, who await news of trending hashtags with all the breathless anticipation of an asthmatic trumpet player, I would gladly apologise if I thought any of you were able to get this far with your tragically depleted attention spans. No doubt by now youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been distracted by a bottletop or a passing car or have asked the question unique to those cursed with far too little to do: I wonder what Nicky Minaj is up to? Let me put it this way â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what use is it? Exactly. For me, I continue to resist. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s follower. If you disagree, please let me know. In fact, feel free to tweet me at â&#x20AC;&#x153;#i donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t particularly care what you thinkâ&#x20AC;?. After that, go and get a book.

This book has none of these things. What it does have is short stories and long laughs. The Meaning of Existence (And Other Short Stories) is a thoughtful collection of everyday insights from Tyabbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite author, Stuart McCullough. A perfect summer read.

Performance MELBOURNE radio gets another station format change from 21 May when 91.5 becomes 91.5 Smooth FM. The playlist will include greatest hits and contemporary music from artists such as Michael Bublé, George Michael, ABBA, Elton John, Adele, the Bee Gees, Bruno Mars, Phil Collins and Jason Mraz. David Reyne, actor, musician and television presenter, will host Wind Down at 8pm weeknights. Other presenters include Richard Wilkins, David Campbell and Jason Donovan. Reyne, who attended the Peninsula School in Mt Eliza, has graced Australian television screens for three decades as a host, reporter, actor, writer, producer and musician. He is narrator of Nine Network’s Celebrity Apprentice, returning this year for a second series. From 2006 to 2009, he was co-host of 9am With David and Kim on the Ten Network. Before joining Ten, he travelled the world for 14 years on Australia’s longest-running prime time television travel program Getaway. Reyne also wrote and produced for the show. While on Getaway he wrote a column, Reyne’s World, for the Herald

Sun and contributed to the travel section of The Age. Reyne’s acting credits include The Man from Snowy River, Flying Doctors and Sweet and Sour, for which he won a TV Week Logie for best new talent in 1984. He hosted The Midday Show with Tracy Grimshaw and was a presenter at the AFI Awards, the Logies and the People’s Choice Awards. He was the original drummer for Australian Crawl and drummer with the Chantoozies. *** THE Production Company’s three musicals this season are The Producers (10-15 July), Chess the Musical

(21-26 August), and Promises, Promises (3-7 October). “In planning the season we have kept our thinking light and bright. The season opens with probably the funniest musical ever to grace the stage, Mel Brooks’ The Producers,” chairman Jeanne Pratt said. “The second show is the rock classic Chess The Musical, with a brilliant score from ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. Tim Rice wrote the book and lyrics.” Promises, Promises is a romantic comedy with songs by Burt Bacharach and script by Neil Simon, and based on the Oscar-winning Billy Wilder film The Apartment. All performances at the State Theatre feature Orchestra Victoria. The Producers opens on 10 July. *** LONDONER George Michael (born Georgios Panayuiotou) is healthy after a battle with pneumonia at the end of 2011 that led to the postponement of his Australian tour. He is preparing for the trip Down Under and will perform his hits and favourite songs from other

artists. He has had one of the most successful and enduring careers, selling more than 110 million records. Michael joined up with school friend Andrew Ridgeley in 1981 to form the successful pop duo Wham. They made the charts with their second single Young Guns (Go for it) in 1982. This was followed by the re-release of the first single Wham Rap, which, along with Bad Boys and Club Tropicana, gave them three UK top 10 hits. Their United States chart debut was Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, the top US single of 1985. Wham was the first Western pop act to sing in China. In 1986 after five years and 38 million sales, the duo split. George Michael performs at Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday 21 November. Tickets 132 849. *** FORMER Eagles band member Glenn Frey will release a new album, After Hours (Universal), this week. Ultravox will release Brilliant (EMI) on 25 May. EMI will also release The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine on DVD and

Even today, with a chap of similar age alongside at our coffee shop, we look and comment, nicely. No charges have been laid to date. Sexual harassment can and frequently is a dangerous, sometimes frightening experience. Hopefully the wowser element of our society will show some commonsense. *** CARLTON coach Brett Ratten was apparently going through hell awaiting the birth of his first child. We were kept updated all through the week before the Carlton-Fremantle game and when it was on television. I felt for Ratten. I went through similar pressure with my first-born while slaving away in the public service with no help from darling for my added stress. We men do not have it easy. Ratten’s baby arrived safely two days after the game. Well done, Brett. Let’s hear it for Brett. *** I TOLD my wife 12 years ago just before we moved to Rye: “Dromana is the go, darling. Prices will rise.” She did not listen (no surprise) so in accordance with our happy marriage watertight agreement (Rule 1: Always let the wife decide where you live), we chose Rye. Dromana is showing 14.4 per cent growth in property val-

ue. Sadly, darling went to God seven years ago so I’ve missed my big opportunity to say, just once, “I told you, love. Didn’t I tell you?” I can hear her retort as I type: “When did you say that? I don’t remember.” One accepts defeat gracefully, even spiritually. *** I WAS shocked when I heard old Clive James had been at it with lovely Leanne Edelsten. He’s as old as me and 25 years older than Leanne. Dirty old man or lucky old man? This is one of life’s big unanswered questions and Clive is not saying. Still, I’ve suspected him for many years. One look at those eyes told me everything. *** IT’S that time again – the Continental Hotel annual art prize in Sorrento is on this month. Good for peninsula artists and good value for those with a taste for culture. Have a squiz if you can. True, you’ll have to rub shoulders with the hoity-toity people of Sorrento, but I’ve found that after a while they become quite normal, almost. *** HERE’S a conundrum: how is it I can talk with a group of people at, say, the coffee shop or the RSL and, leaving aside football, religion and politics, we agree on almost everything under

the sun (and sometimes the moon), but whenever I come across a fully paid-up member of the Self-righteous Brigade, always heavily aligned with Wowsers Incorporated, we agree on nothing? Not only do I regularly disagree, but also there comes the necessity to agree to escape. Brrrr. *** THE federal government’s postponement of its National Cultural Policy, which was to be released with the budget, is a sad indictment of Labor despite Arts Minister Simon Crean’s efforts. Fortunately, Julia’s wonderful idea of a Prime Minister’s Cup, for the winner of the Western Bulldogs and Greater Western Sydney AFL match, allows us some compensation, I don’t think. While on government matters, let’s be honest – if Brumby’s Labor had presented us with Ted’s latest budget, Rupert’s newspapers would still be screaming blue murder, with baa-baa letters to the editor for a week. *** WHAT’S wrong with my Mighty Magpies? Can I blame umpires? Well, yes, as always. The scribes go out of their way to say what a fine job umpires are doing, but as I see it they are just as bad and seemingly unintelligent

By Gary Turner Blu-Ray Disc next month. ABC/Roadshow will release Top Gear: The Great Adventures – The India Special & Supercars across Italy on DVD and Blu-Ray on 7 June. ABC has already released Top Gear USA – Complete Season One on DVD. Top Gear Australia – The Second Series on 9 is also on DVD. Warner Home Video has released an anniversary edition of the 1944 film Casablanca, which won three Academy Awards including best picture, on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc. Joe Walsh, who gave us the classic rock hit Rocky Mountain Way, will release his first solo album in two decades, Analog Man (Fantasy), on 1 June. The album was produced by Jeff Lynne and Joe Walsh with Tommy Lee Jones co-writing some tracks.

A Grain of Salt I’M not big on Anzac Day ceremonies. I attend the service and watch the men and women march with their medals proudly displayed in memory of loved ones, but it always brings me back to what really happened on the Gallipoli Peninsula and my father’s memories of 1350 days on the frontline in the Second World War. From historical writings and firsthand from my father, we got a raw deal in both world wars and it was the unsuspecting Australian servicemen and women who paid so dearly. Then there’s the week of AFL football presided over by El Presidento Andrew Demetrio and a form of brainwashing with truth the loser.

Mounties face true test after four wins By Toe Punt MT Eliza continued its dominant start to the MPNFL Peninsula Division season on Saturday, belting EdithvaleAspendale by almost 100 points. Full-forward Scott Lockwood’s 10 goals and the elusive and creative Sam Lloyd’s eight helped the Redlegs wallop the Eagles 22.10-142 to 6.11-47. After four rounds, the Redlegs have an average winning margin of 73 points, having thrashed Bonbeach, Mornington, Seaford and now Edithvale. As impressive as that average is, three of those four teams are not expected to challenge for finals. The big challenge for the Redlegs comes in the next two matches – Karingal and Chelsea. The Round 9 match against Frankston YCW also will be a beauty. At this stage of the season, Mt Eliza has all the hallmarks of being able to challenge for the flag. The team has good structures, enormous talent, great depth and quality across every line. In years gone by, Lockwood was expected to work his backside off, playing both ends, having a number of opponents and kicking multiple goals. This year, the Redlegs have the luxury of plonking him at fullforward. The result is 21 goals in four games. Lloyd is a freak; there is nothing this bloke cannot do. He is never trapped on one side of his body, can sit on blokes’ heads and can win his own footy through the middle. He has quickly become the most dangerous player in the competition. The Magician has kicked 27 goals in four games. On Saturday, Mt Eliza won without skipper Jimmy Clayton and playmaker Rohan Heasley. It gave opportunities to the likes of Kyle Docherty, who played well across halfforward in his second game back, and Jack Egan, who played in defence and then through the midfield and attack as part of rotations in the second half. The team is looking very slick and coach Jason Watts is very aware of what he has “in his backyard”. “At the moment, I don’t think we’ve got a weak link in our side,” Watts said. “Our structures are sound, we have great depth, a lot of talent and a willingness to get better and keep improving. “We are under no illusions that YCW, Karingal and Chelsea are the sides to beat and we haven’t played them yet. “We thought we could win the first four games and we have achieved that. Now we set ourselves for the next month.” The eight-goal half-time

Coach’s lot: There were more headaches for Mornington coach Josh Beard and his brains trust against Chelsea. After a stirring win over Pines, the Dogs came back to earth with a thud against the Gulls.

margin allowed Watts to experiment a little in the second half. “We were in control of the game and it gave us an opportunity to have a look at a few blokes in different roles and swing things around a bit,” he said. “Dylan Emmons played in a few areas and did really well and Egan was very good. “Flexibility is the key in modern footy and it was important that we tried a few things.” James Anwyl and Jack Cole were outstanding for the Redlegs yet again while Ben Lean has been a more than handy acquisition. The undermanned Eagles had few answers. Jordan Derbyshire, skipper Pat Poore and Beau Turner were their best players, while Timmy Mannix continued to work hard despite playing injured. An undermanned Mornington came back to earth with a thud on Saturday, belted by Chelsea to the tune of 93 points. It was always going to be a tough task for the Dogs, missing the likes of Byron Murphy, Matthew Johnson, Ryan Smith, Barry Smeeton and Chris Baker, all important players at different stages.

While not conceding defeat before the game, Mornington’s coach Josh Beard said it was going to be a tough day. “Chelsea was coming off a big loss against YCW the week before and was going to come out and try and prove something,” Beard said. “Unfortunately, we were missing four or five of our best, which was going to make things tough. “It gave us the chance to have a look at other players, while rewarding blokes in the seconds who had been in good form.” Chelsea star Luke Damon booted 10 goals in a best on ground performance, and Sam Carpenter was again dominant. Fabian Deluca, who played in Port Melbourne’s flag last season, dominated at the centre bounces and around the ground, and Niz Abdallah booted three goals. Jackson Calder is a player of the future for the Dogs and can’t be rushed. Like Geelong’s Tom Hawkins, he is a big kid who dominated junior ranks. With experience and strength, Calder will be a star of the MPNFL inside three seasons. Aaron Rixon was up from the magoos and played well for the Doggies, and Michael

Altenkirch and Jack Dixon acquitted themselves well. Mornington is on the up. Josh Beard has done a masterful job, the list is gaining experience and talent and their time will come. With a young list comes peaks and troughs. Patience and support is the key. Bonbeach won its first game of the season, a credit to coach Stevey Capp and the team. The Sharks had been

competitive without getting across the line and controlled the match against Langwarrin on Saturday from start to finish. The Kangas challenged in the third term and got within a couple of goals, but the Sharks steadied in the last to win by 20 points, 12.18-90 to 11.4-70. The story of the match was the appearance of former Hawthorn player Beau Muston, who booted two goals for the

Kangas and was one of their best. The Kangas’ best player, Dan Wehner, was out with a finger injury, and Bonbeach’s best, Shane McDonald, was serving the second week of a six-week suspension. Dale Donkin was outstanding for the Sharks with four goals, and Nate Robinson contributed three in a best on ground performance. Jason Ferraro and Josh Bull in the ruck were also standouts for the Sharks, and Mark Tyrrel and Shaun Foster found plenty of the footy. Kangas’ key forward Dale Eames was well held, but Mark McGill and Jarrod Amalfi led from the front. They are the future of the club and emerging as two of their finest. Andrew Withers, as usual, was outstanding, and Shane Urbans continues to shine at his new club. Seaford’s season is back on track after knocking over Karingal. With Chris Irving back from Sandringham, the Tigers dominated the clearances and the first half. Karingal regained the momentum late in the third and came charging in the last, but undisciplined acts cost them and Seaford was able to capitalise and run away with the match. Brayden Irving and Michael Kraska booted three each for the Tigers, and Luke Smith and Aaron Walton were outstanding. Stephen Charalambous and Justin Peckett were superb for the Bulls, and Dan Noble made it two good games in a row. As expected, Frankston YCW got the job done against Pines, winning 14.20-104 to 3.4-22. In an uneventful game, the Stonecats booted five goals to one in the first half and at threequarter time it was seven goals to two. The reigning premier booted 7.6 to 1.1 in the last to record an 82-point win.

Blues’ Michie one of three happy coaches By Toe Punt YOU don’t have to look too far in MPNFL Nepean Division to see how things can change in seven days, that old footy adage about a week being a long time in the game. A week ago, three coaches were in despair. Hastings’ Glenn Michie was tearing his hair out, Crib Point’s Dave Lawson was left bewildered and Frankston Bombers’ Tony Blackford was questioning whether he could still coach at the top level. Wind the clock forward and “Mouse” (Michie), “Plugger” (Lawson) and “Blackers” (Blackford) are all up and about again. Hastings got the job done against Somerville, Crib Point beat Devon Meadows in a thriller, and Frankston Bombers got home by the smallest of margins against Dromana. Once again, Round 5 proved how tight this competition is in 2012. In other Nepean Division matches, Rosebud held off a fast-finishing Rye to win by three points, Sorrento managed a comfortable victory against Tyabb, and Red Hill got the job done against Pearcedale. In the 98.7FM Radio Port Phillip broadcast match of the round, Frankston Bombers turned around a horror week by hanging on in the dying minutes to beat Dromana. The Bombers were coming off their most embarrassing loss in memory against Devon Meadows, facing the unenviable task of playing a rampant Dromana. At quarter time, the scoreboard suggested the Bombers were in for another tough day, trailing by 23 points. However, the statistics of inside 50s and clearances clearly showed the Bombers were getting their hands on the footy just as much as the opposition. Haydn Moore in the ruck, Shawn Wilkey and Nathan Lonie took the game by the scruff for the Bombers in the second term. Lonie, the former Hawthorn and Port Adelaide defender, booted four goals in the second, one of seven for the Bombers in the term. They led by five points at half-time, despite losing Ryan Lonie to a shoulder injury. Jay Hutchison, Jarryd Hunter, Tommy Wright and Shaun Clarke were the only four quarter performers for the Tigers. Others such as Steven Gaertner and Toby Banks floated in and out of the game and made an impression, but were inconsistent. The second half was a see-sawing battle, the lead changing more than a dozen times in the last hour. Bombers recruit Brad Wakeling, who had been disappointing in his previous four appearances, was at his best at full forward on Saturday. “Wako” had more than 15 touches, about 10 marks and finished with four goals, including the one that put the Bombers in front with two minutes to go. Dromana took the ball forward and hacked a behind, but the siren sounded with the scoreboard reading 14.14-98 to 14.13-97. Bombers coach Tony Blackford was both emotional and animated after the match. “It’s been a big week, Toey,” Blackford said. “You know me; I wear my heart on my sleeve and footy means so much to me. I haven’t been able to think about anything else this week. “Contrary to what some, the leaders of this club and the players have been


Mornington News 17 May 2012

very supportive of me and it showed on the field today. “The leaders stood up and played great football and the kids had a fair dinkum dip. “That’s all I ask for every week. The challenge now is to maintain consistency. “It doesn’t get any easier – Rosebud this week and we need to bring the same effort to the table.” Hastings coach Glenn Michie was equally as happy after his side overcame a slow start against Somerville to win 12.10-82 to 4.2448. After playing the “worst six quarters of footy in my time at the club”, Michie was happy with the way his side went about winning in the final three quarters. Somerville booted with a gale in the opening term and managed 3.10 to no score. While some chances were wasted, Michie said he wasn’t overly concerned at the break. “The wind was extremely strong and I thought we played the kind of footy we wanted to in the first quarter, despite not being able to get the ball forward,” he said. “We tried a couple of things with Jason Kestle forward and Paul Rogasch back and that seemed to work well. “Troy Glass came into the side and his touch was superb, and young Steve Robb was fearless. “Troy (Glass) proved that he belongs in the seniors and young Robb was really impressive. I wanted to play him last year, but he was too small. However, with another year of experience and a stronger body, he’ll play a lot of footy for the club.”

The Blues took a stranglehold on the game in the second half, booting 9.7 to 1.10 to run out comfortable victors. Their last quarter was dominant, kicked off by a Brad Arnold goal in the first 10 seconds. Cory Meloury booted three for the Blues in another solid performance, and Dave and Steve Hull and Adam Hurst shone. Teenager Troy Jacobson was outstanding for the Eagles, as were Emilio Bitters and Chris King. As expected, Sorrento had to work hard, but proved too strong for Tyabb. The Sharks kicked with the wind in the second and final quarters, finishing with 5.7 to zip in the last to win 14.17101 to 5.3-33. Leigh Poholke booted five for Sorrento and debutante Tommy England finished with a couple. Dion Phillips and Mitch Nibbs were outstanding. The Sharks went into the game without Brendan Cairns, Kayle Stringer-Morris, Ben Schwarze, Brent Kenyon, Ben McCormack and Chris Bagot. Without these key players, a 10goal victory at Tyabb was a mighty performance. Ethan Rahilly, Ryan Jones and Brendan Miller were the best of the Yabbies. Red Hill proved too strong for Pearcedale, winning 11.8-74 to 3.1432. The Hillmen kicked clear with a five goal to one second term and controlled the match from that point. Jarryd Douglas was lively in attack for the Hillmen with three majors while Harry Larwill enjoyed some time in the middle and in attack, finishing with a couple. Robbie Mace and Daniel McNamara

had outstanding games for the winners and the more experience Josh Mold and Peter Dal Lago led from the front. Pearcedale made a run in the third, but inaccuracy in front of goal stoped them bridging the gap. Brendan Fortnam was among the best for the Panthers, while his brother Chris, along with Pat Cadd, were also fine performers. Rosebud controlled its match all afternoon to get the points against Rye. Trailing by four goals with about 10 minutes left, Rye stormed home with the aid of the wind, but fell five points short, losing 11.12-78 to 12.11-83. Tom Baker booted four for the Buds against his old side while Ryan Spooner was best on ground with three goals. Buds’ coach Mark Hustwaite said it was a luxury to play both Greg Bentley and Spooner up forward as well as through the middle. “The form of youngsters Jamie Clarke, Mitch Wells and Daniel O’Heir means that we are much more flexible through the middle,” he said. “Cade Egan is in red hot form, playing as a permanent defender, Lachy Armstrong came in and did a great job at half-forward and Paul Lewis was super against Rhett Sutton.” Hustwaite said his side was starting to play the kind of footy he wanted from them. “We’ve been a bit of a kick and mark side in the past, but with a more potent forward line and settled defence, it allows us to run, carry and spread a lot more quickly. “We showed some good passages of that new style today.” The Buds were in control of the

match for all but the final 10 minutes. Darren Booth continued his outstanding season for the Demons, while Leigh Morse was back after being at the birth of his baby the week before. Justin Van Unen booted four goals. Crib Point was involved in another thriller, kicking the last two goals to beat Devon Meadows by three points, 11.15-81 to 11.12-78. The tight finish prompted coach Lawson to quip “if we keep this up and I’ll end up with more grey hair than ‘Anners’ [Duane Annable]”. “They’re killing me; these close matches,” Lawson said. “With five minutes left on the clock, we were two goals down. Dean Warry kicked one to get us within a kick and then Sam Adams scrapped for the footy, shrugged off two players and snapped a goal to put us in front.” Lawson said he was happy to win. “I didn’t think we were at our best, but I thought we were consistent in our performance, rather than dropping off for 10 minutes here and there. “We now have three away wins, which is pretty pleasing, but it’s important now to perform against Rye this weekend.” David Cook and Luke Herrington were superb for the Magpies, while Brad Davidson and James and Jacob Cook were outstanding. Daniel Velardo booted five goals for Devon, and Andy Johnson and Jess Dehey were among the team’s best. In bad news for the Pies, John Ransom is out for the year after tearing the muscle from his shoulder. Jay Munday is back and preparing to play.
