Take the reins, dear DANA and Allie were getting into the Christmas spirit last week as they donned festive garb while taking their horses for a stroll through the streets Rosebud. While their mounts might be unlikely to score a job pulling Santa’s sleigh, they certainly looked the part and brought plenty of festive cheer to the neighbourhood. Picture: Yanni

Bushfire warning By Keith Platt AN early warning has been issued to be prepared for bushfires on the southern peninsula. Residents should leave the Mornington Peninsula the day before a declared Code Red Day and head for Rosebud or Rye early in the morning on total fire ban days, according to Murray Homes of Blairgowrie Community Fire Prevention Group. However, Mr Homes believes many

residents do not intend to follow that advice from the CFA but instead are relying on “the bay beach option”. “Many people intend to continue with normal summer activities and only head to the beach at the first indication of a bushfire. This could be a recipe for disaster,” Mr Homes states in the bushfire group’s latest newsletter. He said Portsea, Sorrento, Blairgowrie and parts of Rye have been assessed as high fire danger areas for 2013-14, with Blairgowrie being downgraded

from being classed as “extreme”. “The race to the beach will lead to traffic jams and mass panic,” Mr Homes stated. “People have underestimated the speed with which a bushfire would move through the coastal vegetation of Blairgowrie. Many of our houses are of light timber construction with outside wooden decks and they would not survive the passage of a bushfire. “The elderly and young families would be especially vulnerable.

AUTO

“In extreme weather conditions, people staying on the beach all day and into the evening would face enormous difficulties and could be tempted to go home during the afternoon before the fire danger had passed.” Mr Homes said high fuel loads “continue to exist on public land, council and roadside reserves, vacant land and many holiday houses” with evacuation roadsides being overgrown with dead trees and weeds as well as rubbish. “With the degraded national park,

narrow roads and high fuel loads, this would be an extremely dangerous place to be on a Code Red day and other total fire ban days.” Mr Homes said Nepean MP Martin Dixon “has inspected this high fire danger area and has agreed to take follow up action”. More fire prevention work was planned between Canterbury Jetty Rd and Blairgowrie Village, including areas that “have not been touched for more than 50 years”.

Police campaign targets drink and speed By Mike Hast POLICE will be out in force on the Mornington Peninsula over summer, targeting drink-drivers and speedsters, says Sergeant Dave Collins, one of two highway patrol bosses in the region. The region has extra money from the Transport Accident Commission for more police shifts to ramp up the longrunning Operation Back Roads, which sees officers in marked and unmarked cars patrolling minor peninsula roads to test drivers for alcohol and drugs. “We’re conducting random breath testing every day,” he said.

Booze and drug bus operations will be conducted on highways, Peninsula Link freeway and other major roads. He said a recent tactic was to set up on all roads leading to major intersections. Recent operations had been conducted in Mornington, Sorrento, Baxter, Tyabb and Hastings. “We set up at the intersection of Melbourne and Hughes roads in Sorrento, and at Coolart and Graydens roads near Hastings, and were disappointed with the number of people caught drink-driving,” Sergeant Collins said. “Some peninsula people still think

they can get away with drink-driving.” Extra police would concentrate on the southern peninsula in particular. Sergeant Collins said a new law coming in next year would allow police to impound cars of drivers caught with a blood alcohol reading of 0.10, twice the legal limit. Fixed speed cameras on Peninsula Link and mobile cameras in police cars would target speeding drivers, he said. “We’ll still be patrolling Peninsula Link despite speed cameras being turned on recently,” he said. Transport Accident Commission money would also allow more speed

camera patrols on the peninsula. Another arrow in the police quiver is the new BlueNet patrol car with its number place identification camera and computer. It started operating earlier in the month and allows police to check for unregistered cars and unlicensed drivers while the patrol car is on the move. Sergeant Collins said unregistered cars and unlicensed drivers were “over-represented in accident statistics and we want to remove them from the roads”. Operation Summer Stay would see police visually inspecting vehicles and

putting unsafe cars off the road. Inspecting vehicles has the backing of Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce, the peak automotive industry body in Victoria. A spokesman said drivers of vehicles found to be unsafe or unroadworthy being served with defect notices was fully supported by the VACC. “There are more unsafe vehicles on our roads than people realise,” the spokesman said. “Our final vehicle safety figures for the year make disturbing reading. The research shows 40 per cent of vehicles on Victoria’s roads have a defect.”

No go for dog day afternoons By Chris Brennan NEW restrictions on walking dogs in Mornington Peninsula National Park are now in force, with pet owners warned they face hefty fines for breaches. Dogs are prohibited at all times along an additional seven kilometres of coastline between Portsea and Flinders and can only be walked on leashes between sunrise and 9am within a limited number of signposted areas in the national park. Areas where early morning on-leash walking is permitted include a 14km section of coast between Sorrento and Rye, and signposted areas at Portsea surf beach, St Andrews beach and Flinders ocean beach. There are a number of alternative dog walking areas at some Port Phillip beaches as well as public reserves managed by Mornington Peninsula Shire. Rangers have warned the new regulations, introduced in spring, would be strictly enforced and violators would be prosecuted and fined Parks Victoria head ranger Kris Rowe said the restrictions were designed primarily protect wildlife, such as the endangered hooded plover, which is particularly susceptible to dog attacks, as well as to avoid potential conflict with other visitors. “The national park’s primary purpose is to conserve native flora and fauna,” he said. “We’re pleased that most people are adhering to the new regulations but this is a timely reminder for people as they head out to enjoy the warmer weather.

“The standard fine for [breaking the rules] is $289, but recent patrols have resulted in two individuals being fined $1000 and $900 respectively plus costs. “I cannot emphasise enough the importance of reading the signs placed at every formal entry point to the national park. They always provide the correct information to follow.” One group of dog owners more than happy with the new regulations is the Rye-based 16th Beach Dog Walking Group, which has taken a protective stance toward local hooded plover populations The group was “delighted” members would be able to continue social walks on the beach within the specified hours without having a negative impact on hooded plovers. “With the breeding season now in full swing, the group’s members are keen to show that by following beach regulations and having our dogs on their leads and walking at the specified times within the pathway and, once on the beach, walking close to the shoreline, our social activities can progress in harmony along with the native wildlife,” walking group member Brenda Harding said. “We have fought very hard to keep 16th Beach open to dog walkers between dawn and 9am, and are very thankful to Parks for this. “We only ask that everyone makes a concerted effort to walk their dogs on their leads within the correct hours on the shoreline, and not walk up in the dunes where you would be disturbing the nesting plovers and native fauna.

Snow business: Belle Brockhoff has risen through the ranks of competition snowboarding with astonishing speed and is off to the Winter Olympics in Russia early next year.

Brockhoff has recipe for snow success By Mike Hast PENINSULA snowboarder Belle Brockhoff has snow in her genes and winning on her mind. The 20-year-old first skied as a child and took up snowboarding at age 10 with an eye to competing at the Olympics. She is off to the Winter Games in Russia in February after a stellar rise in the highly competitive world of snowboarding. Her uncle, Peter Brockhoff, competed in alpine skiing at the 1960 and 1964 Winter Olympics. Her grandfather Harold Brockhoff was one of the original pioneers of Mt Buller, and her great aunt, Joyce Brockhoff, has a run named in her honour at Mt Hotham in recognition

of her work promoting women in snow sports. Her dad Bruce Brockhoff competed in an entirely different dimension – he was an international and national gliding champion in the 1980s. The Brockhoff name may be familiar to older readers: Belle’s great-great-grandfather established the biscuit manufacturing firm A F Brockhoff & Co in Melbourne in the 1800s, and three generations worked in the company, including her dad Bruce. Brockhoff’s Biscuits merged with Arnott’s in 1966. But back to the snow: the Australian Olympics Committee says Belle Brockhoff is one of the world’s most formidable snowboard cross competitors.

At the Olympic test event in Russia, she placed sixth and finished the 2012-13 season ranked ninth in the world. A breakthrough bronze at a world cup in Austria gave her the confidence to chase a medal at her first Olympics. “I definitely want to finish on the podium at the Games,” Brockhoff said before departing for a training camp in Austria. She has been training in Australia and New Zealand to prepare physically and technically for the final weeks of competition and the Games next year. Fractions of a second make a difference in snowboard cross, where competitors pull themselves out of a starting gate and hurtle down a

course of jumps and turns, jostling for position. She has been perfecting starts at a specialist facility at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra and has made great time gains. The discipline requires strength and endurance, and Brockhoff has been powering up sand dunes and lifting weights. Brockhoff is the only openly gay Australian athlete at the Winter Olympics. Olympic spokesman Andrew Reid said her stance for equality and against discrimination was celebrated by most people in 2013. “Anti-gay propaganda laws introduced in Russia this year have caused outrage around the world.

There were initial calls for boycotts and concerns for how openly gay athletes, officials, spectators or media people would be treated,” he said. Brockhoff said she had not considered boycotting her Olympic dream. “The Olympics have always been my dream ever since I was a little girl and picked up my first snowboard. I’ve been training for 10 years for this,” she said. Brockhoff will be in Sochi to snowboard faster than her competitors and not as a pro-gay protester, Mr Reid said. She plans to be an ambassador for gay rights in Australia after the Olympics.

Saving lives a world away “In 2011 we had one visit, in 2012 we had four visits and in 2013 we sent volunteers five times including covering the Vietnamese school holidays, which is when there is a spike in drowning due to the fact many children are at home or out adventuring during the day when their parents are at work,” Mr Lyne said. “There is an emphasis on training Vietnamese teachers so the knowledge and skills are built up within the Vietnamese community and the program is sustainable.” Four years on, WSV has established a committee of more than 20 people working toward assisting the people of Vietnam to prevent drownings. “As a not-for-profit company, and without any government assistance,

we are all responsible for fundraising,” Mr Lyne said. “We have the volunteers willing to go, all we need is funding. “We have taught more than 400 kids to swim and distributed hundreds of pairs of bathers and brought smiles to

the faces of many children and parents.” The group’s next fundraiser is a dinner on Saturday 14 December at Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club. Details: Robyn Lain, 0413 493 893.

More disturbingly, the report found the vast majority of drownings were preventable. Not being one to sit back and wait for others to act, Mr Lyne brought together a number of concerned Victorians with either swimming or lifesaving backgrounds and formed not-for-profit company Water Safety Vietnam. All members of WSV are volunteers and contribute because they believe they can make a difference to the lives of people in Vietnam. Over the past four years, 27 volunteer teachers from Australia and seven recruited from Vietnam have joined the organisation. Since 2011, WSV has trained more than 320 teachers, 102 going on to become fully trained AUSTSWIM teachers.

By Chris Brennan WHEN Rye surf lifesavers Charles Lyne and Robyn Lain learned that 35 children drown every day in Vietnam, they felt compelled to do something to help. With many years of experience saving lives on the Mornington Peninsula as volunteers with Surf Life Saving Australia, the pair set out on a new path four years ago to help bring the skills learned through one Australia’s most respected organisations to the beaches and waterways of Vietnam. Research by the United Nations published in 2012 showed childhood drowning in Vietnam was largely unreported and not recognised as a significant health issue due to the fact it was not recorded in hospital statistics.

Food advice: Mornington Peninsula Shire’s rural business officer Gillian Stewart, left, the mayor Cr Antonella Celi and Richard Hawkes of Hawkes Potatoes and Farm Store in Boneo.

Group to push peninsula food MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is calling for expressions of interest from individuals and businesses to represent the food industry on a Food Industry Advisory Body. Establishing an advisory group is part of the shire’s “local food strategy”, which aims to promote the peninsula as a “quality, fresh and innovative food region”. The mayor Cr Antonella Celi said an industry-led body would “enhance the story, provenance and identity” of the peninsula’s food. Cr Celi said the peninsula was “renowned worldwide” for its wine and there was on “opportunity to raise

awareness of the full range of local food and food experiences on offer”. “From a consumer perspective, there is a growing demand to better understand and appreciate the food that is on offer and produced close to home,” she said. “The Food Industry Advisory Body will guide, advise and initiate activities to promote peninsula food in a collective and holistic manner complementary to existing singleindustry associations.” Applicants to join the advisory group should “have a willingness and energy to raise awareness about local food systems through advocacy,

communication and representation at industry events”. “Ideally, applicants will also have a working knowledge of key elements of the local food supply chain and a direct connection to the peninsula’s food sector as well as have demonstrated success in their industry.” The group is expected to meet at least quarterly and use “electronic mechanisms of communication as required to progress agreed actions”.

Bikers’ protest rally MOTORCYCLISTS from the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston joined about 2000 riders outside Parliament House on Sunday last week to protest tough new laws being introduced in Queensland. Bikers are complaining about heavy-handed treatment from Victoria Police and fear Queensland laws could be introduced in Victoria. Victorian riders congregated at about 10 places, including in the car park of a fast food outlet on Western Port Highway at Skye, before riding into the city for a rally that included speeches by God’s Squad leader Dr John Smith and rebel Catholic priest Father Bob Maguire. “Victorian cops are acting more like they’re in Queensland,” one rider said. In Queensland, one of most controversial parts of the law is the shift of onus onto bikers to prove they’re not part of a criminal gang, instead of the other way around. In October it was announced that Federal and Victorian police had formed a special strike team

to target outlaw motorcycle gangs. Premier Denis Napthine said a strong response to bikie gangs was needed. “These gangs are involved in drugs, violence, extortion and standover tactics,” he said. Dr Smith said the state was penalising all bikers for the sins of a few. We just want to show people that we’re not all crooks; there are good people affected by these laws, he said. Rally co-organiser Dale Maggs told The News police were taking anti-bikie actions to extremes. “Police have been harassing riders who belong to social biker clubs,” he said. “Even if you’re riding on your own, police pull you over.” Mr Maggs’s family has been associated with the Cranbourne toy run for 30 years. In October, the Victorian government introduced anti-fortification laws that allow police to obtain court orders to tear down walls, fences and other defences at bikie clubhouses. Mike Hast

Christmas concert: Silvie Paladino will be performing with Lily and Toby at New Peninsula Church carols.

Paladino at church carols PENINSULA residents can hear the talent of highly acclaimed singer Silvie Paladino at this year’s New Peninsula Baptist Church carols concert. Paladino is regarded as having one of the best female voices in Australia with a remarkable range that enables her to sing everything from jazz to opera. She is known to audiences around Australia and the United Kingdom through her regular stage and screen appearances, including Les Miserables, Cats, Miss Saigon, Mamma Mia and Chess as well as a regular favourite at Carols by Candlelight. She will be performing on the peninsula for one night only at the church’s Away in a Manger concert, which will feature a host of peninsula acts. Paladino said she was looking forward to visiting the peninsula for the concert, which she described as a “unique production”.

“The peninsula is such a beautiful place, especially at Christmas time,” she said. “It’s great to be a part of such a unique production; so much love is put into it each year and there’s always something for everyone.” Also performing at the free Christmas event will be eight-year-old Lily and her 11-year-old brother Toby. “We begin playing with a nativity set and it comes to life and grows full size,” Toby said. “Some of my other toys come to life, too; it’s really funny.” The event will include free children’s activities between shows including face painting, a jumping castle and live music, and a kiosk will serve dinner at a small cost. The concert is from 5-7.30pm on Sunday 15 December at New Peninsula Baptist Church, 370 Craigie Rd, Mt Martha.

LETTERS Science reassures

Guarantee wanted

NOT for the first time, we read again the bold headlines about threats to sue over beach erosion at Portsea by hotelier Chris Morris following the outside broadcast of 3AW’s Neil Mitchell program at Rosebud pier on 29 November (The News, 3/12/13). While the program was comprehensive, some callers and listeners were confused with findings cited in the Water Technologies report, which should not be read as a standalone document. It is actually considered as part of the CSIRO report as it undertook a peer review of it and all other studies. The CSIRO’s report should rightly be considered as the most authoritative on the subject of beach erosion and potential causation. As Port of Melbourne Corporation has always been guided by the science rather than anecdote, it’s a view we share. However, the interpretations of the report’s conclusions differ wildly and ultimately pivot on the use of the word “conceivable” with regard to attributing erosion to dredging. Surely, those forming a considered view on the matter, including any potential litigant, would need to assess the rational strength of an argument that relies on the use of the terms “conceivable” or “possible” articulated in a scientific document. The credible studies on coastal processes all suggest that beaches are inherently dynamic and subject to a wide range of natural forces, which ultimately shape the foreshore. In short, there are a multitude of natural forces at work as there has always been. Indeed, “Mother Nature” would probably need to be a co-defendant in any court action. While it’s not for us to determine the probability of litigation or its outcome, any paranoia on our part was shed long ago with the weight of the publicly available scientific evidence, which has been accumulated before, during and after the completion of the channel deepening project. Future legal action is a matter for Mr Morris. Stephen Bradford, CEO, Port of Melbourne Corporation

INTERESTING to read that according to Cr David Gibb, if the foreshore site is accepted [for the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre site], concept plans, costs, ministerial approval, feasibility study and funding are all in hand – although some councillors are only getting a couple of days to read about it (“Aquatic centre”, Letters, 26/11/13). If this is the case, then the estimated cost, mentioned variously between $35 million and $45 million, could be confirmed by Cr Gibb as a firm cost. Allowing, say, a 10 per cent contingency (for such things as groundwater), will Cr Gibb go guarantor if the cost blows out over this? It is to be hoped that if it is built on the foreshore it will contain a cafe, as it would be very dangerous to have children trying to get across the busy highway and a dangerously narrow service road parking area to cafes. Keith Murley, Blairgowrie

SPA supporters I WRITE in response to a sentence written by Mike Hast making reference to a loose alliance of Rosebud people, which is fair enough I suppose, but there is nothing loose about us. We are six ratepayers who are volunteers in many community activities and groups. We are not lobbyists for these groups. We are not financially supported by any group, and pay for our own expenses. Three [of us] work full time. Since 2000, five of us have been interested in the progress of the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre through council meetings and reports. So, in other words, we are six communityminded individuals who, as part of a silent majority, decided on the spur of the moment to get a petition going. In 16 days of petitioning our expectations of a reasonable result have been well reached. These signed petitions have been lodged with the shire’s governance department for the 9 December council meeting. Despite the cut off time and date, I am still being asked for petitions to be distributed.

Unknown demand WHILE Cr David Gibb was able to provide a comprehensive response (The News, 26/11/13) to certain issues contained in David Harrison’s article (The News, 19/11/13) about the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre, it is somewhat surprising that Cr Gibb and his Seawinds Ward council colleagues were unable, unwilling or not permitted to provide a response to a question concerning the aquatic centre that was raised at the recent ward councillors’ meeting. The tenor of the question concerned the extent of demand analysis the shire had undertaken to support the need for the aquatic centre. Cr Antonella Celi indicated that such information was on the shire website and, if it had been removed, she would have it reinstated. The only piece of website information outlines the extent of community consultation that had been undertaken, which is clearly inadequate for the purposes of developing patronage levels and revenue forecasts that will underpin the business case. Given that the primary facilities contemplated within the aquatic centre’s current design – 25-metre lap pool and gymnasium – are provided by the private sector in reasonably close proximity to central Rosebud location, one must assume that these businesses are “bursting at the seams” and cannot cater for the current, and therefore the future, level of demand. If these businesses are not currently operating

at peak capacity and not having to turn patrons away, it begs the question why the shire would wish to invest tens of millions of dollars in a capital project that replicates facilities that are readily available within a five kilometre radius? If the shire’s project leads to a reduction of business activity by those private sector entities that currently provide the range of facilities and services that are to be replicated within the aquatic centre, or the shire will be required to subsidise the day-to-day operational costs through the rate base, it could be arguable that the shire is in breach of National Competition Policy. The principles of competitive neutrality contained in the policy indicate the shire should not use its “position of power” – such as cheaper access to funds, provision of operational subsidies (sourced from the rate base), admittance and pricing policies, etc – to the detriment of private sector businesses. While it is unlikely the shire would publicly release its project feasibility and/or business case prior to it making its decision – irrespective of the location – it would be pleasing if council was to confirm that: 1. The demand for all elements of the project is clearly established. 2. The project is financially viable without the need to provide year-on-year operational subsidy through the rate base (assuming that operational revenue is highly unlikely to be sufficient so as to cover debt servicing and investment return of equity contributed). 3. Admittance and associated pricing structures will not be detrimental to nearby private sector providers of comparable services. 4. Competitive neutrality principles will be adhered to. Stuart Allen, Dromana

Police alarm on power ski hoons WATER police are ramping up patrols on Port Phillip to crack down on “hooning” power skiers, while police on bicycle and foot patrols will target theft and anti-social behaviour on beaches. Police have voiced growing concern at the dangerous behaviour displayed by many operators of high-powered vessels such as power skis – also known as jet skis or personal water craft (PWC) – when around swimmers at otherwise peaceful beaches. Uniform and plain-clothes police will be patrolling Port Phillip. Sergeant Mark Greenhill said jet skies were “extremely powerful machines” and that the potential for something to go wrong was high, particularly around swimmers or other recreational boaters. “If you are operating a PWC, remember it is an offence to speed in swimming zones or operate within 50 metres of another vessel,” he said. Sergeant Greenhill said carrying appropriate safety equipment when on the water was not only essential but also could turn out to be a lifesaver. “Every year we see boats breaking down or capsizing, and having safety equipment could mean the difference between life and death,” he said. “Last week, we launched an air and sea search after we received a mayday call from a sinking boat.

“The sole occupant was very luckily located in the water by a passing fisherman, however without flares or beacons it made him very difficult to spot. “There is simply no room for complacency with safety on the water; life jackets will keep you afloat if something goes wrong, and flares or beacons will make you easily visible to emergency services.” Sergeant Darren Joy said Operation Sandsafe would run from December until late February.

Independent state proposed for peninsula By Chris Brennan FRANKSTON and the Mornington Peninsula should secede from Victoria and form a new independent state with its own government, laws and flag, a Melbourne academic has suggested. Swinburne University lecturer Matthew Mitchell said the wishes and democratic rights of the people of the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston City were being ignored, especially when it came to planning and development issues, and that this could be resolved by the two municipalities uniting to become a separate state. “At every community consultation, the one issue that nearly everyone agrees on is that the area is being overdeveloped and that people do not want that,” he said. “So why is that, despite this being raised, development rolls on with proposals for even more high density living? Why is it that in this ‘democractic’ country, what the people want is ignored?” The answer, he said, was that local governments were not recognised under the Australian Constitution and thus held little real power, while state bodies beholden to powerful business interests were able to overturn locally enacted laws and planning schemes. Under the Australian Constitution, only two levels of government are recognised – state governments and the federal government – with no mention of local government or local councils, he said. “So local residents can spend a lot of time working with councils to create local planning laws to protect their communities and their local environment, but the laws can be overturned, either by VCAT or the planning minister.” “People spend a lot of time going to council forums, writing objections, writing letters to newspapers, all with little effect. “The answer is that there is something wrong with our democracy.” The only way to reclaim the legal authority for residents to determine their own future was

State of play: Matthew Mitchell is proposing Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula become an independent state to ensure residents’ wishes are upheld. Picture: Gary Sissons

through the formation of a legally constituted state within the Australian federal system. Dr Mitchell, who lives in Seaford and is a proponent of sustainable development, said that while the idea of forming an independent state on the Mornington Peninsula, with Frankston as its capital, might sound unfeasible, there was actually nothing stopping residents calling for a referendum to vote for their own independent government. This was in fact the exact process by which the state of Victoria had been created. “The State of Victoria was created in response

to the demands of Melbourne residents in 1850 to be governed by local people who understood their problems,” he said. “This provides a precedent for the creation of the State of Mornington Peninsula. “People on the peninsula would seek the right to govern themselves as they see fit, by locals. “A new state will allow peninsula people to take control of their own future, and will provide immediate economic and environmental benefits.” Dr Mitchell said the creation of the State of Mornington Peninsula would lead to “immediate significant economic benefits” through creation

of more jobs and opportunities in the area. Revenue and employment opportunities that currently went to Melbourne would be relocated to Frankston and the peninsula, with an independent state requiring its own education, transport and planning departments, as well as courts and police. “The flow-on effects of this would significantly boost local business and open up very attractive opportunities to the people of Mornington Peninsula State,” Dr Mitchell said. “These systems would be far more responsive to the needs of the people on the peninsula than current state services. “In fact, if this process was to be conducted across Victoria, this would achieve the decentralisation and revitalisation of rural communities that has been discussed and previously attempted by the state government over recent decades. “The conversion of the entire state of Victoria into a set of smaller regional states could also be done via a state referendum.” This could result in about 18 to 20 regional governments that could then create a “coalition of Victorian governments” that would supervise and manage the reorganisation of former state of Victoria assets, services and responsibilities. But it was in the areas of environmental management and development planning that the “micro-state” proposal was most critical. The creation of one or more regionalised state governments within Victoria would give communities direct control over the environment and natural resources. “For example, communities would have complete control over the use of genetically modified crops and coal seam gas fracking,” he said. “We can see the problems, we can see where they come from. What we need to know now is how to get back control of our lives and our suburbs.” For more details of the Mornington Peninsula State proposal, visit www.8thstate.net

Ride gets easier for disabled surfers By Keith Platt DISABLED surfers are in for a more comfortable ride when surfing at Point Leo next year. Over winter the Mornington Peninsula branch of the Disabled Surfers Association has been trialling a device that allows surfers to sit rather than lie on the board. Depending on their disability, some of the surfers at DSA events have been lying on their backs while volunteers form a line to the beach in case they wipe out. But the peninsula branch has developed a bead-filled “seat” that allows a disabled surfer to sit up and enjoy the view as they surf toward the shore. Branch treasurer John Bowers credits the idea of using a bead bag to DSA’s Ocean Grove branch president Mark Beshara “who was floating around his pool on an Aqua Duck and reckoned they would be good for participants on event days”. The bead-filled floating seat for swimming pools “proved to be really good; people could float off in them if they wiped out”. However, Mr Bowers said it was soon realised the back rest needed to be higher and the front of the circular bead bag lower. The search to make the surfboard seat functional, comfortable and safe eventually involved sitting one Aqua Duck on top of another and taking beads out of the front section. “The Western Australian DSA group, with the help of the University

of WA, had come up with a chair made of poly tubing that could be attached to a surfboard,” Mr Bowers said. “This was brought up as an idea at [a meeting] at Collaroy in 2012 but was considered dangerous. “Gary Morton [former peninsula branch president] was inspired by the idea of having participants sit up when he changed his piloting position on the board, which allowed participants to sit up and lean back on him while he was sitting up on the board. “I worked with him at our last event earlier this year and saw that his positioning was a real balancing act that few others could manage. Also, he could damage his knees badly and if the board pearled, his weight would be on top of the participant. “With the help of Bill Hallett, who is now our secretary, and Don Ferguson of Solve Disability Solutions and Don’s wife Robin, the new improved Aqua Duck evolved.” Mr Bowers said the seat had been “accepted enthusiastically” at the DSA’s national annual meeting at Queenscliff in August. Sponsorship by Amway saw the marketing company donate enough money for two of the seats to be provided to each of the DSA’s 15 branches. Test pilot: Jenny Goodall-Angliss testing the new surfing seat at Point Leo with a team from the Disabled Surfers Association’s Mornington Peninsula branch. Picture: Keith Platt

Surf’s up at Point Leo THE Mornington Peninsula branch of the Disabled Surfers Association has scheduled two events at Point Leo in the new year. The surfing events are increasing in popularity, with hundreds of volunteers helping disabled surfers have an enjoyable and safe time in the surf. Wide-tyred wheelchairs are used on the sand and lines of volunteers stand in the water to make sure the surfers

can be quickly helped if they fall off. Volunteers are asked to bring swimwear, including wetsuits and booties if required, to Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club by 9am on Saturday 18 January and 1pm Saturday 15 March. There will be a free barbecue for participants and volunteers. Register at infodsamp@gmail.com or www. disabledsurfers.org

Sky’s the limit as men get on a role IT was a man’s world – for a weekend at least – as boys big and small from Eastbourne Primary School pitched tents and fired up barbecues for an annual camp out at Rosebud West last weekend. The manly affair, dubbed Men Behaving Dadly, is held for the fathers, stepfathers, uncles and male carers of Eastbourne pupils to highlight the importance of male role models. The camp, which was held overnight from 29-30 November, was organised by the school in conjunction with Anglicare Victoria’s Parent Engagement, Transition and Support Project, a program that aims to enhance community and family connections. Lions Club of Rosebud pitched in, providing a barbecue dinner and breakfast for 83 dads and their children. After an action-filled day of sport and other manly pursuits, the focus shifted to women, with the release of 100 balloons in recognition of White Ribbon Day. The national violence prevention campaign aims to raise awareness among men and boys about the roles they can play to prevent violence against women. “In letting the balloons go, it’s a reminder that violence against women is not okay,” Eastbourne primary principal Steve Wilkinson said. Sue Weatherill of Anglicare Victoria said the importance of relationships between men and fathers and their children in particular were often overlooked. Events such as the school’s Men Behaving Dadly camp played a vital role in highlighting the importance of positive male role models and

Manly pursuits: Eastbourne Primary School dads joined their children for a weekend of male bonding at the Men Behaving Dadly camp-out at Rosebud West. The event, which was organised by the school in conjunction with Anglicare Victoria, culminated in the release of 100 white balloons to mark White Ribbon Day. Pictures: Andrew Hurst

the need for more services for men. “We hoped to validate the importance of dads and other male role models while promoting respectful relationships,” she said. “Many funded services exist for mothers in Mornington Peninsula Shire but there is a gap in services for fathers, who play such a vital role in the lives of children.” She said the presence of positive male role models increased the “resilience and protective factors in children” and reduced the likelihood of children engaging in risk-taking behaviours such as alcohol and drug abuse, sexual activity and the prevalence of mental health disorders, such as anxiety and depression. “In pre-adolescent years where children are establishing a sense of identity, it is particularly important for the interactions with male role models to be positive,” she said.

Bells jingling at radio studio RADIO Port Phillip’s recording studio was filled with excitement when primary school children recorded a Christmas CD. Thirty-six pupils from Woodlands, Mornington Park, Somerville Rise, Kingsley Park, Rosebud and Frankston Heights primaries performed traditional and modern Christmas carols. Proceeds from CD sales will go to State Schools’ Relief, an independent charity that helps needy students at government schools. Woodlands primary assistant principal Michael Block said the event gave “children a full recording experience, while helping others”. RPP-FM manager Brendon Telfer said the station was happy to make the BlueScope studio available for the day. “It’s a super project for a very worthy cause and the kids were great. Hopefully this was the first of an annual event,” he said.

The project was a great way to develop links between peninsula schools and its community radio station, he said. Music director Malcolm Boag said it was “a terrific recording session” and praised the singers and the studio’s facilities. The CD features classics like Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and Jingle Bell Rock. It is available at the primary schools and at the station, next to Peninsula Community Theatre, corner Nepean Highway and Wilsons Rd, Mornington. Tracks will feature on the station’s Christmas playlists. Debra Mar Xmas factor: Pupils recording Christmas carols for a charity CD at Radio Port Phillip included, back row from left, Miki (Somerville primary), Liam (Woodlands), Max (Mornington Park) and Madi (Rosebud) and, front row, Kayla (Kingsley Park) and Bree (Frankston Heights).

Dolphins under scrutiny HASTINGS-based Dolphin Research Institute has started a “citizen science” program to provide a three-hour snapshot of the activities of dolphins, birds and seals as well as humans. The initial program is looking at activities in Port Phillip from Mt Eliza to Mt Martha. On Sunday 24 November volunteers worked at the Ranelagh Club in Mt Eliza, Mills Beach and Schnapper Point Lookout in Mornington and Mt Martha Yacht Club. “We had a fleet of special marine binoculars with built-in compasses and sight-lines that enable the precise location of sightings,” the

institute’s director Jeff Weir said. He said the sighting of dolphins at three of the four sites “validates the methodology and the involvement of volunteers”. Mr Weir said the citizen science program would next year be extended and held on regular days at more locations. For details about joining the dolphin watching program or the institute’s Adopt-A-Dolphin gifts for Christmas, call the Dolphin Research Institute on 1300 130 949 or visit www. dolphinresearch.org.au

Healthy recipe wins top prize: A RYE Primary School pupil’s recipe for fruit salad has been

chosen as one of 12 best entries for a national pharmacy chain calendar.

She won $1000 for her school. Hannah is pictured with her entry and Rye Beach Pharmacy retail manager Michelle Cincotta. Picture Barry Irving

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Store narrowly avoids fire disaster; Frankston garden in danger Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 20 December 1913 A SMALL fire, though one which may easily have been a serious conflagration, occurred at the rear of Mr McDonald’s store at Frankston at 4.30 a.m. on Tuesday. It appears that some rubbish was left burning, and during the night this spread to some empty cases, which ignited. Fortunately the blaze was noticed in time, and Mr Cunningham rang the fire bell. The brigade were quickly on the scene, and the fire was soon put out. A large number of cases of kerosene were stacked within a few yards of the fire, and had the flames spread to them the result would have been more serious. *** RESIDENTS of Frankston, as well as visitors to the town, to whom the beautifully kept street gardens have been such a pleasure, will regret to learn that, unless some suitable arrangements can be made, they will most likely deteriorate to what they were before. The pump has broken down; the man who did the pumping has gone away, and difficulty is experienced in getting anyone to take his place. It is too much to expect Mr Reynolds to look after the gardens and pump water too. His position is an honorary one, and has been for two years, and the work he has done in the gardens has been well worthy of substantial remuneration. Unless something is done at once and a proper supply of water kept up, the gardens, and two years’ labor, will be destroyed in a few days.

*** TO allow our staff the usual relaxation during Xmas week, there will be no publication of the Standard next week, December 27th. We take the opportunity of wishing our readers, correspondents, advertisers, and clients generally, a Merry Xmas and a bright and prosperous New Year. *** AN extra attraction in Frankston on New Year’s Day will be the Choral and Orchestral concert in the evening at the Mechanics’ Hall. *** QUITE a buzz of excitement was caused when the band stepped into Bay Street on Tuesday night, playing one of their competition pieces. *** THE Mornington Racing Club will make a profit of about £10 over their recent meeting, and in addition the whip given by Major Campbell and raffled realised nearly £20. *** ON Wednesday night after the Church of England concert, Mr Scarborough was returning home when three young men stuck him up and demanded the door takings. Fortunately he had handed them over before leaving the hall. *** THE committee of the Osborne State School are to be complimented for arranging such an enjoyable programme for the children yesterday. A concert was held in the schoolroom. Luncheon and afternoon tea was provided, and all kinds of games and races were indulged in. Every child received a prize.

*** MR Frank Jolly, of Brisbane (Q.), who will be a competitor in the Sheffield handicap and 220 yards event at the local New Year’s Day sports, last week won his heat and semi-final in the Brachenress (Q.) Sheffield handicap, and in the final ran a dead heat with F. Morris, to whom Jolly conceded 21 yards start. ***

Mr R. Bates, who has been on a tour of Great Britain, returned this week. “Bob’s” many friends were all pleased to see him back again. THE Frankston Brass Band acknowledge with thanks £1 1s, donation to uniform fund from Mr W. Williams, ‘Rupertstan,’ Langwarrin. The band will appear in uniform next Saturday night in Bay Street, and render a programme of musical items. The uniforms lately received have given general satisfaction. We regret to state a large amount is still owing on uniforms. The band hope its admirers will come forward and

show their admiration in a practical way. Donations will be gratefully received by members of the band committee:- Messrs Lawrey, Willox, Croskell, Bunney, Millard and the secretary, J. L. Guumes. Practice still continues for the A.N.A. competitions in February, and in order to get acquainted with competition work the band will be taking part in the competitions to be held at Beaufort on Boxing Day, each bandsman defraying his own expenses. *** MR Edgar Thornell, of Somerville, has been distinguishing himself in his studies at the Continuation school. He has just secured a scholarship which admits him to continue his studies at Queen’s College at the University. *** FOR a vacancy existing as patron of the Melbourne Home and Mission, Major C. W. Campbell, of Amesfield Park, Frankston, is to be nominated. The Major and Mrs Campbell have always been good loyal friends and supporters of this charitable cause. *** VERY satisfactory entries have been received for most of the events to be run off on New Year’s Day at Frankston, there being 60 for the Sheffield, 39 for the 220 yds handicap, 22 for each of the bike events, and 8 for each of the two chops. The handicaps appear in another column. *** MR S. S. Gault, of Somerville, reports having sold to Mrs Hawken, senr., three blocks of land situated in the centre of the Somerville township at a satisfactory price. It is

Mrs Hawken’s intention to erect a residence on the blocks at an early date. *** THE friends of Mr E. Worrall, of Frankston, will regret to learn of the very serious indisposition of his father, at Albury. Mr Worrall left Frankston on Saturday last, to be at his father’s bedside, and from word received from him he seems to entertain little hope of his father’s recovery. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to him in his trouble. *** AT the last meeting of the Mornington Shire Council, Cr Campbell drew attention to several matters which, he alleged, had been neglected by the Secretary, and he submitted a motion to fix the office hours of the secretary, which was not seconded. Cr Campbell appeared to feel strongly on the matter, and said he would resign, but was persuaded to hold it over for a month. *** HASTINGS Tennis Club visited Frankston on Saturday, 6th inst., and were represented by Rev. C. Eva, Mr Watt, Cr James Hodgins and Mr Alf. Boulter. Owing to the even nature of the play there was not sufficient time to finish the match, but an enjoyable afternoon’s play resulted in a win for Hastings by two games:- Hastings 42 games, Frankston 40 games. Frankston was represented by Rev. G. A. Kitchen, Mr C. Watson, Dr Maxwell and Mr Norman Jackson.

Everybody wants to ruler the world By Stuart McCullough ONCE upon a time, there was paper. Using either a pen or pencil, it was customary to write on sheets of paper in order to communicate with others. This was before the computer made the art of handwriting almost wholly redundant. Back then, a tweet was something you wrote down, put in an envelope and mailed to another person. Several weeks later, you might receive a response to your written missive. Granted, it was painstakingly slow, but the world was a better place for it. It was an era when it was okay not to know what Lady Gaga had for breakfast and Shane Warne’s thoughts on almost everything remained his alone. It was, in other words, a paradise. In primary school, the first task of the day was always to copy down whatever the teacher had written on the blackboard. I often wish I had paid more notice. Even then I found copying down someone else’s work tiresome and really didn’t give the task my full attention. As a result, my attempts to transcribe the day’s date resembled an ant that had been dipped in ink and sent on a one-way trek. If only I’d paid more attention, I feel my handwriting could have been better. We were only allowed to write in printed script. At that time, cursive script was regarded with awe as something that only grownups were allowed to do. Our teachers argued that printing was easier to read and that I was just the exception to the rule. But it wasn’t only my handwriting that left much to be desired – my style of presentation more broadly meant I was doomed to fail. We would write in exercise books, with a different book for each subject. But before a single letter was added to the page, there was the matter of ruling a border. There were many ways to go about this seemingly simply preparatory task. Perhaps inevitably, I took the most direct and least imaginative approach possible: I placed my ruler to the left of the page and drew a red line down the side. For me, it was something I had to get out of the way before getting on with the real business of school. Others, however, spent more time preparing their borders than they did on their actual class work. They too began with a simple line. Then they broke out the big guns. I only ever had regular pens, but some of my classmates were lucky enough to own the Titanic of biros – the four-in-one pen. A simple click of a button was all it took to transport you away from everyday blue ink to something as full-on exotic as green. Truth is, green ink serves very little practical purpose and exists largely for decorative

purposes. From a simple border would spring decorative patterns and flowers that made my pages seem impossibly dull. By lesson’s end, the paper would be so heavily inked that it looked like a Comanchero. Their borders were, frankly, bordering on the ridiculous. As you go through school, your relationship to your stationery begins to change. A ruler is no longer something with which to create a very dull and uninspired border. It becomes the site on which you declare your allegiances to particular bands or, if you were particularly bold, another person. Before people announced their relationship status to the world through Facebook, they used to do it on either the ruler or pencil case. In the event that the relationship ended, of course, this would cause all manner of awkwardness, requiring either that the name be blotted out or turned into something else. Much as when people are forced to remove one of their “My Family” stickers, the results were always far from perfect. But rulers were more than just mere billboards. In the schoolyard, there were many ways in which you could settle your differences, but rulers were the weapon of choice for discerning students. There were other options, though. I lived in fear that, one day, a fellow student would issue an invitation to meet behind the shelter shed. I would avoid these confrontations, even though I knew it meant being called “chicken”. Some students preferred the brutality of the compass, but the device was eventually banished, ensuring an entire generation would be useless when it came to drawing a curved line. A ruler, however, was always to hand. It was as simple as it was cruel. All you had to do was hold out your ruler and allow someone else to use theirs to strike it as hard as they could. The object was to split your opponent’s weapon, rendering it useless. Moving your ruler out of the way at the last second was the best way to avoid a strike but was strictly prohibited. Any deviation at all would result in the other person getting a free go. The sound of splintering wood was the sound of defeat. It’s been years since I owned a ruler. The need to put a border on anything simply doesn’t arise. Soon, paper too will be a thing of the past. Even now, I regularly receive emails that invite me to think about the environment before printing it. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to sit quietly and observe a minute’s silence or just feel guilty that I’ve accidentally printed 87 copies rather than the one I needed. If I’m caught, I fear receiving an email invite to meet behind the shelter shed. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Performance GRINSPOON, one of Australia’s favourite rock bands, announced a hiatus before their final show for 2013. Seven albums, 13 ARIA nominations, over half a million records sold and a back catalogue that is etched into Aussie rock history. They’re one of our best-loved and most enduring bands. With well over 1,000 shows, six consecutive Top 10 albums and multiplatinum sales across an amazing 18year career, it’s fair to say Grinspoon have earned some time off. And so the band wishes to announce that they’re taking a long-term, indefinite break, with founding members Phil Jamieson, Pat Davern, Joe Hansen and Kristian Hopes going on a hiatus to pursue individual projects for the forseeable future. www.grinspoon.com.au *** AUSTRALIA’S number one party musical Grease arrives at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne on 2 January after electrifying sell-out seasons in Brisbane and Sydney. Due to huge demand, new tickets will go on sale on December 2 for performances from March 1-16, 2014. The high-energy, smash hit musical has taken Australia by storm and includes such unforgettable songs as You’re The One That I Want, Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To You, Sandy, Greased Lightnin’ and many more. Leading the all-star cast in the iconic roles of Danny and Sandy are born entertainer Rob Mills and rising star Gretel Scarlett. Bert Newton returns to his radio roots to play the role of slick veteran disc jockey Vince Fontaine, while Todd McKenney dusts off his dancing shoes to star as Teen Angel. The role of All-American, rockstar student at Rydell High, Johnny Casino, is played by Anthony Callea, and television and stage veteran Val Lehman returns to musical theatre

to play tough school principal Miss Lynch. Producer John Frost said: “Rarely have I seen audience reaction like the one we get every night for Grease, with everyone in the aisles dancing and singing along. Grease truly is the number one party musical. Book fast

Melbourne to see Rob, Gretel, Todd, Bert and the gang on stage.” Grease in on at Her Majesty’s Theatre from January 2. Nightly shows with matinees Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Tickets 1300 795 012. www.greaseistheword.com.au ***

indecent pleasures? A five-star hotel in Paris; you can guess the rest? The grief period lasts a year or two, returning for short spells on anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas and (for males) when washing clothes, shopping, cooking and cleaning. I’m no psychologist so I can only give my opinion: Certain attitudes are necessities to maintain a reasonable quality of life. Keeping busy obviously, living in the moment, dismissing thoughts of past or future worries (google, ASIO, early inheritance syndrome), keeping in touch with family and friends, talking, listening, laughing, walking and giving time to recording past happy memories, if any. Keep clear of sex, difficult but dangerous. Perhaps give away the cigarettes? *** WHY do so many people patronize we older people? Sometimes I get this urge to pay out on them but refrain owing to the fact of being a useless fist fighter. I only won the once, at the Preston Town Hall after a dance. I hit him and down he went; victory. Whacko the diddle-o. To use Julia’s words: “You have the right to an environment that treats you with respect as an equal and raising your voice about that is not starting a war or playing the victim. You’re just asking for what is simply right”. Yea Julia. Julia who? Outgoing Peninsula Mayor Lyn Bowden supported the positive age-

ing strategy and the scooter recharge scheme. Good girl Lyn. Oh, the Preston fellow was drunk of course, but you guessed that. *** FRENCHMAN John Lerius spent a year in Brazil around 1557. On arrival, he discovered all the men and woman were nude. Considering the beauty of the Brazilian females generally one would think lust would rear its leering head, as indeed Lerius considered, but his efforts to convince them to hide their privates was unsuccessful. He eventually concluded nakedness did less to entice lasciviousness than women’s clothes and accoutrements, coupled with sparkling eyes and effective carriage. No mention of a nice bottom? *** SUPERANNUATION is the goldmine of our time. It conjures up images of hundreds of various types called various directorial names (unions and businesses) salivating on super funds – $2 trillion and ever upwards. We are regularly informed of a review which, as far as I can see, amounts to keeping the whole massive enterprise vague and hidden from our concern. On the law of averages there lies within many crooks sifting out fees under various titles into their greedy pockets. Superannuation governance, mandatory standards, conflict of interest; be-

ONE of the most influential comedians in entertainment history, John Cleese, is a founding member of Monty Python and responsible for some of the most iconic films and television comedies ever made, including The Life of Brian, Meaning of Life and Fawlty Towers. Cleese also starred in such major Hollywood hits as A Fish Called Wanda and Fierce Creatures. Cleese will head in Melbourne to appear at the Comedy Theatreon 18-19 March. Cleese will regale fans with stories and exclusive clips from his illustrious 40-year career. It’s an opportunity to get up close and personal with a true living legend. Cleese, a force behind some of the most ground-breaking comedy of the 20th Century will perform shows in Tasmania, Melbourne and Sydney. His last national tour in 2012 was a total sell out and this encore tour will be prior to the recently announced Monty Python reunion in London in July. His distinctive English accent has been put to good use on several animated children’s films, voicing King Harold in Shrek 2, Shrek The Third, and Shrek Forever After and Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone; and of course the ever memorable television series Fawlty Towers. Few comedy troupes have reached the same fame of Monty Python, and a large part of that success was due to John Cleese and his impeccable timing and sense of humour. Cleese has mastered everything from dry wit to slapstick humour, making his type of humour one that everyone can enjoy. He is the master comedian and admired and respected by everyone. www.johncleese.com or www.abpresents.com.au *** SINGER/songwriter Aleyce Simmonds (pictured) is among the finalists in the Female Artist of the

By Gary Turner Year category of the 2014 CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia. The announcement, made at Sydney’s Hard Rock Cafe last month, follows news that Believe the title track and first single from Aleyce’s second full-length album, hits the Australian Country Tracks Top 30 and CMC Top 50 countdown. “I feel like I’m caught in a whirlwind”, Simmonds said. “It has been a crazy year recording and releasing an album whilst touring so constantly. This nomination means a real lot to me. I can’t wait to stand still long enough to breathe and take it all in!” Simmonds will appear at the Peninsula Music Festival, Morning Star Estate, Sunday January 12th. www.aleyce.com *** SHOCK Entertainment has released a special Jamie Oliver six DVD box set for Christmas.

A Grain of Salt THE big day is again almost upon us. Time to balance the anticipation. A free meal at Portsea, drinking restrictions and an expected behavioural attitude to be “nice”. Perhaps 150 minutes, two stubbies; sounds about right. No politics a big plus, a rest from supercilious Christopher Pyne and my general state of melancholy from both sides of politics. The holiday hordes, pleasant, atmospheric, hell at night. The little nippers on parade; kids, dogs, multiculturalism and the long hot summer; remain inside mostly after 11am, maybe venture out to the Peninsular Summer Music Festival; a drive past the Butterfly House, Dromana, catch a glimpse of Hannie Rayson. A writer-in residence? Nah, too far from the RSL. Way back, 1944, three hours at the Northcote Baths. Or 1974 at home with darling and the chaos of visitors. I did time in the public service, a month of parties; ham, seafood and females, a dangerous mix. The verdict? Even Steven, or perhaps a nostril on the good side. After all, I’m still here right, just? *** LIVING alone is a work in process for oldies who have lost a partner, with Waiting for Godot snuggled in the backblocks of the mind but easily accessed. We wish for a comfortable finale, a powerball windfall to indulge my

yond taxation, beyond accountability? The Australian Securities Investment Commission decided years ago the disclosure of fees was not necessary? Funds manager Chris Brycki says half the investment returns by Aussie savers hve been lost in management fees; ditto superannuation. Crooks all. *** AGE can catch up if you’re not careful. A cold windy morning. The milk is boiling for Vita Brits and I step outside to get the two plastic wrapped deliveries of the Saturday Age. Bugger; only the one? Five minutes of searching failed. Down the driveway to the newsagency and I remember the milk? Rush back, too late, the stove a mess. Back out I go, halfway there when it hit me. It’s Friday! *** YET another push circulating for a swimming pool at Rosebud; fast becoming a War and Peace situation. I’m for a pool on the Rye foreshore and permanent bye byes to the dreaded carnival. It will never come to pass in my lifetime and I would not be swimming in it anyway, but for families and holidaymakers, it’s surely a winner. Wasn’t this part of Nepean MP, Minister for Education Martin Dixon’s platform at the last election? Many believe the bay provides a safe spot for swimmers of all ages but the safety of a supervised pool along the foreshore provides an attractive alternative for those who are freaked out

By Cliff Ellen by sand. I’m advised of Rosebud having a dangerously high incidence of homeless kids; maybe do something about this sad problem first minister? Just a thought. *** AFTER a break of 10 years, I watched 60 Minutes on Channel Nine; missed nothing... Andrew Bolt says Tony Abbott is articulate and Tania Plibersek “spiteful” – hilarious... A strong rumour Collingwood footballers will be required to wear a collar and tie on and off the field during 2014. Perhaps they got rid of the wrong “culture”?... It could be worse: Darryn Lyons as mayor? Thank God he didn’t choose us... Aussies win the test; back to unbearable egoists... In sympathy with ABC salaries disclosures, I’ll declare mine: $21,000... Many of the words said or printed before the word “but” are poppycock... “Poverty palls the most generous spirits; it cows industry, and casts resolution itself into despair.” [Addison] ... hooroo... cliffie9@bigpond.com www.ello8.com

At the Bendigo it starts with U.

Doggies’ domination continues PROVINCIAL By IT Gully MORNINGTON continued its domination of the MPCA Provincial competition when it took Moorooduc’s bowlers to the cleaners on Saturday. The Doggies are in red hot form at the minute and it was no surprise that they batted after winning the toss. With conditions perfect at Moorooduc Reserve, Mornington openers Anthony Gapes and skipper Matt Foon put on 67 before Gapes lost his wicket for 26. Foon went on to make 61 and Ben Clements, who came in at number three, top scored with 83. Jake Pankhurst made 30 and Luke Popov blasted five fours and a six on his way to a half century. The Dogs finished their 80 overs at 6/288, which isn’t a huge score at

Moorooduc Reserve. However, with the bowling line-up it has, 288 is more than defendable for the best side in the Provincial caper at present. Michael Whincup was the pick of the bowlers for the Ducs, bowling 28 overs for 2/107. Long Island is just eight runs away from victory against Mt Martha. The Islanders won the toss and wanted to have a crack at the Mt Martha bats. Things started OK for the Reds but soon fell apart, losing 6/8 as Andrew Tweddle and Scott Phillips tore through the top order. Keeper-batsman James Walker was able to prevent further carnage when he made 23. He was well supported by Tim Bateman (19). Kade Bendle also contributed 14 at the top of the order. Mt Martha was bowled out for 75 in 51 overs, Tweedle claiming 5/10

from 14 overs and Phillips 4/30 from 21 overs. The Islanders had to face the last 21 overs for the day and obviously, sensing an outright opportunity, were looking for quick runs. Mt Martha’s bowlers were tight and determined and claimed the first three wickets for just four runs. Paul Hartle, Aaron Paxton and Peter Connell were all sent packing early, before Phillips was removed. At one stage, the Islanders were 4/15. They recovered thanks to Justin Bridgeman (30no) and Fergus O’Connor (19no) to be 4/67 heading into day two. Mt Eliza is in the box seat against Heatherhill after making 297. Luke Marshall was the star of Provincial cricket for the day, coming in with his side struggling at 4/52 and blasting 113. He made 90-odd in round two. Along with Jason Mathers (84),

Marshall was able to push the score to 242 before Mathers lost his wicket. Lyle House then blasted 24 to help his side to 297. Brett Maxwell was the best of the Heatherhill bowlers with 4/88 from 20 overs. In reply, the Hills are 0/16. The match between Langwarrin and Sorrento is in the balance after the first day’s play at David McFarlin Reserve. It is an important game for the Kangas, who were shown-up against Mornington in their last match. They need to perform well against the best in the business to gain the credibility they are looking for. The Kangas won the toss and batted, however quickly went from 0/47 to 3/47. While no Kangaroo went on to post a big score, a number contributed with the bat, including Simon McEvoy (30), Andy Johnson (37),

Mark Cooper (24), Michael Edwards (34), Mal Coutts (20) and Nathan Volpe (30). The reigning District champions were without leading run-scorer Danny Weare. CJ King was the best of the Sorrento bowlers with four wickets, while Mick Dunball and AJ King snared a couple each. In reply, Sorrento is 1/1, with Jedd Flack in the sheds. Peninsula Old Boys will need to bowl well to defend the 206 they made against Crib Point. Glenn Prendergast top scored for the Old Boys with an unbeaten 50 while John Forrest chipped in with 30. It was a good afternoon for the Pies with the ball with Brad Davidson getting 3/47, Henry Dolphin 3/60 and Luke Herrington 2/21.

Battle stations: Hastings are 2/40 chasing Boneo’s 209. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Main Ridge in red-hot form DISTRICT By IT Gully MAIN Ridge is in red hot form at the moment and it continued on Saturday against Seaford in tound six of District cricket. The Ridge won the toss at Seaford Reserve and sent the home side into bat. It proved to be an educated decision by the Ridge skipper and match-day hero Brendan Rossborough, who watched his bowlers tear through the top and lower order of Seaford. While Ben Lawrence (36) performed well at the top of the order in his first senior XI game this season and

Mathew Herbert contributed 21, the day belonged to the Ridge. Seaford was bowled out for 110 in 54.2 overs. Jason Albress bowled 8.2 overs for a return of 4/25, while James Abbott snared 3/27 from 15 overs. Batting the last 25 overs for the day, what unfolded next was simply superb. The Ridge were looking for quick runs and they got them in the form of Rossborough, who smashed an unbeaten 101. This was on the back of the 64 he made in his last innings. Up the other end, Michael Holmes (20no) watched in amazement. At stumps, the Ridge were 2/147, a lead of 37 with 80 overs to play.

The match between Delacombe Park and Pines is going to be a nailbiter. The Parkers batted first on their home deck on Saturday and could muster only 115 from 53.2 overs. Andrew Christides got 22 and James Spencer 24. Nick Wilcox was at his damaging best with the ball, claiming five wickets, while Ricky Ramsdale picked up four scalps. The Parkers’ bowlers needed to produce something big with the ball to stay in the game. They delivered. Chris Brittain snared 4/25 and Shane Deal took 2/4 to have the Piners reeling at 6/75 in reply.

Flinders has given itself every opportunity to win its match against Somerville after scoring 8/234 on Saturday. Shane Beggs showed some of his best work with 41 while Tommy Clements (40) and brother Robbie Clements (36) offered some real resistance. Early wickets are the key for Flinders on day two. Boneo and Hastings are locked in a real battle. Boneo batted first on Saturday and made 209, Leigh Lowry top scoring with 77. Luke Hewitt is having an outstanding season for the Blues and helped himself to 4/68, while Isuru

Dias picked-up 3/42. In reply, the Blues are 2/40. Carrum declared its first innings at 8/194 against Ballam Park and has the opposition at 1/3 overnight. Shaun Foster top-scored for the Lions with 92 and Josh Dent hit 33. In the final game of the round, Baden Powell has plenty of work to do against Seaford Tigers. The Braves batted first on Saturday and were rolled for just 149. Elia Carter top-scored with 29 and Sam Mullavey hit 28. Jordan Watters was at his best for the Tigers with 3/29. In reply, the Tigers are 0/13.

Hillmen are a 2013 juggernaut SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully THE Sub District juggernaut that is Red Hill continues to rattle the cages of the opposition. This time it was Carrum Downs on the receiving end of the punishment. Red Hill may have started the season a little shaky and inconsistent, however, the cricket the team is playing now is inspired. The Hillmen won the toss on Saturday and elected to send the Cougars into bat. The decision paid dividends, with the home side rolling the visitors for just 78 in 33 overs. Glenn Collett was brilliant, bowling 16 overs and finishing with six maidens and a return of 6/30. Jimmy McCall and Ross Corfield claimed 2/2 and 2/8 respectively. The Hillmen then hit a quickfire 7/138 in 30 overs, with Owen McKillop top-scoring with 40 and Rheede Hopgood making an impression in his first senior XI game with 39. Red Hill then had the last 37 overs of the day to try and make some inroads into an outright win. They succeeded, Ross Corfield claiming another couple of wickets (2/3) to have the Cougars in trouble at 3/38, still 22 runs behind the Hillmen. Brad Trotter enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at the crease for Pearcedale

on Saturday, playing away to Dromana. Opening the batting, Trotter made 100 for the Panthers, while Kaine Smith (51) batted at seven and helped the opener get to three figures. At one stage, the Panthers were 5/92. Smith and Trotter then took the score to 215. Zac Clan picked up five wickets for the Hoppers while Andrew Thompson snared four scalps, including that of Trotter. Skye has set Rosebud a big total of 252 to chase down for victory. A number of Skye batsmen got starts at Rosebud Reserve, keeper Rob Gruar the best of them with 47. Rosebud dominated the early part of the day, taking 5/82. However, Stephen Smart (40) and Paul Fillipone (47) worked with Gruar to set the Buds a more-than-reasonable score to chase. Darren Kerr bowled a staggering 40 overs for the Buds for a return of 4/125 (including 10 maidens), while Brad Glenn picked-up 2/33 in only his second spell for the year. Balnarring looks to be in the box seat against Frankston YCW after setting the home side 286 for victory, while Tyabb and Tootgarook are locked in an intriguing battle. The Yabbies batted first and scrambled to 181. In reply, the Tooters are in some early trouble at 2/34.
