Beyond the pale AN out-of-control car smashed through the fence of a Rosebud property last Sunday night, rolling multiple times across the length of the garden before smashing into a parked car and landing just metres from the front of the house. The Holden sedan, believed to be travelling in excess of 100km/h, failed to negotiate a bend on Elizabeth Drive near the corner of Rosebud Ave shortly after 8pm. The car narrowly missed a power pole after leaving the road and becoming airborne, before crashing through the property on the opposite side of the road. The impact sent fence palings flying and destroyed a number of fruit trees as the vehicle tumbled more than 30 metres, coming to rest on its wheels just short of the brick home’s front door. Homeowners Coral and Blair Miller had been enjoying a quiet Sunday evening with their children before the sound of the crash sent them scurrying outside to survey the destruction. Police said the driver, who was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries, is likely to face a range of charges. Picture: Yanni. Inset: Gary Sissons

Abandon SPA: coast report By Mike Hast THE Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (SPA) should not be built on the coastal reserve at Rosebud, says a new report commissioned by the Victorian National Parks Association. The Coast is Unclear: an uncertain future for nature along the Victorian coast says Victorians are loving the state’s coastline to death, and better planning policies are needed to avoid the “impacts of a new wave of development washing over the state’s 2000-kilometre coastline”. Building SPA on the foreshore was approved by a narrow majority of shire

councillors in December but has generated widespread opposition. The report states Mornington Peninsula Shire’s proposal for the aquatic centre “highlights the risk of municipalities managing coastal Crown land reserves when they are also promoting major development of the reserve and adjoining land”. “This mirrors the historic problems with committees of management developing revenue-generating uses such as camping grounds and caravan parks at the expense of coastal nature. “It also points to the need to review the concepts of activity nodes and net community benefit contained within

the Victorian coastal strategy 2008.” The report – the first of its kind on coastal planning and management issues along the state’s entire coastline – proposes a 100-metre buffer zone on private land abutting coastal reserves, streams, river banks and estuaries. Development would be banned in the buffer zone, boundaries between public and private land would be fenced off, and landowners would get financial help for vegetation restoration. The recommendation is among dozens in the 268-page report, commissioned by VNPA and written by veteran marine and coastal environment consultant Chris Smyth.

port and industrial development driven by rapid population growth were eroding “what we love about our coasts”, he said. It also calls for Western Port’s coastline to be protected and the proposed Port of Hastings expansion abandoned. Studies for the proposed port should be stopped and the state government should be “consolidating the ports of Melbourne, Geelong and Portland”. Successive Victorian governments have contributed to the creation of a complex, disintegrated and ineffective coastal planning and management framework that has been unable to stop the squeeze on coastal nature.

“Victorians love their rugged coastlines and seaside towns, but the very landscapes that make summer holidays in the state so special are being transformed by development encouraged and approved by successive state governments,’’ VNPA spokesman Simon Branigan said. The report calls for new and expanded state parks, greater protection for Western Port and Port Phillip, and an overhaul of the ad hoc way authorities manage the coast. Mr Branigan said comprehensive policies were needed from all political parties ahead of November’s election. Climate change and coastal, urban,

Police slam ‘disgraceful’ speedsters By Chris Brennan POLICE have slammed the “disgraceful� behaviour of rogue motorists on Peninsula Link after more than 10,000 speeding drivers were detected in just one month, including one man clocked at well over double the 100km/h speed limit. Cameras detected more than 300 speeding offences a day between 17 December and 18 January, including 114 drivers who had their licences immediately cancelled after being caught driving more the 30km/h above the speed limit, eight of whom were

clocked at speeds of more the 45km/h over the limit. Among them was a male driver clocked at 238km/h and later at 121km/h in a 60km/h zone. Police said the man would face dangerous driving charges and have his car impounded under anti-hoon legislation. Southern Metro road policing inspector Bryan Sharp said the results showed too many motorists were treating the freeway like a raceway and putting lives at risk. “It’s incredibly disheartening that some people continue to ignore the

risks and treat the freeway like a raceway,� he said. “It has been well publicised that there are cameras along Peninsula Link, and that police continually run operations to enforce the speed limits. “The fact that we are still finding such a high number of people speeding beggars belief.� Meanwhile, a suspended P-plate driver was arrested and charged and had his car impounded after being caught speeding at 162km/h in a 60 zone in Rosebud earlier this month.

spotted a vehicle travelling at 132 in a 50 zone on Point Nepean Rd and then at 162 in a 60 zone on Jetty Rd at about 1am on Saturday 1 February. The 20-year-old Rosebud man was found to be driving on a suspended Provisional 1 licence and his car was unregistered. Police recently announced they would now be targeting low-level speeding in a campaign designed to make driving above the limit “as socially unacceptable as drink-driving�. Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill said police across the state had been in-

structed to fine motorists guilty of setting their own “de facto� speed limits, including those travelling at as little as 1km/h over the limit. “The culture has shifted in respect of drink-driving; it’s now socially unacceptable for people to get behind the wheel of a motor car and drive while affected by alcohol, but the same cannot be said for speeding,� Mr Hill said. “Across our community, people don’t appreciate that low-level speeds can be just as dangerous as high-level speeding.�

Shire faces phone survey test LOCAL government minister Jeanette Powell hopes Mornington Peninsula Shire has improved its popularity with residents over the past year. With the annual community satisfaction survey underway, Ms Powell has told the shire she is looking forward “to seeing an improvement on last year’s survey”. Mornington MP David Morris says 400 randomly selected residents and ratepayers will be called to see what they think of the shire’s performance. “The statewide telephone survey, which began in late January, is an important tool used by the Victorian government and councils each year to collect direct feedback from the community about council services,” Mr Morris

said. “Community opinion is sought on four main areas: council’s overall performance, community consultation, advocacy, and customer service.” He said the results would be given to the shire in May and be available to the public on the Local Government Victoria website. He said last year’s survey found two-thirds of respondents enjoyed a council-managed recreation facility, 43 per cent participated in community and cultural activities, 16 per cent used council family support services and 14 per cent relied on support for older residents. More than half of people surveyed rated these services as average or better. Ms Powell said she looked forward

to seeing an improvement on last year’s survey result where half of the respondents also rated overall council performance as good or very good. “Local councils provide a diverse range of community services – from maintaining footpaths and swimming pools, to managing community hubs and public libraries and meeting the needs of people of all ages and abilities,” Mrs Powell said. “The annual survey assesses performance against a range of measures to help councils respond more effectively to the changing needs of their local communities.” The Community Satisfaction Survey is being conducted by the Department of Transport, Planning and Local

Infrastructure on behalf of the shire. Ms Powell said the report would follow legislation giving Victorians “an unprecedented level of transparency and accountability across local government”. “Victoria’s new Local Government Performance Reporting Framework, mandatory from July 2014, will be crucial in ensuring the proper use of public money and the provision of high-quality services for residents and ratepayers,” she said. “The new framework will reveal where councils are performing well, where they can improve and whether the community is getting value for money. The reforms will also reduce local government red tape and give the

community better access to information about how their local councils are performing across a range of areas.” Ms Powell said information about how a council was performing would be available online, helping “drive improvements across the local government sector”. She said councils would report against a set of performance indicators allowing ratepayers to compare their council’s performance including: service performance, financial performance, sustainability capacity – council’s funding and resourcing capacity to meet their community’s service and infrastructure needs – and governance and management.

Ships ahoy: The navy’s newest vessel LHD Adelaide on the semi-submersible transport ship Blue Marlin enters Port Phillip on Friday morning, dwarfing the Searoad car ferry Sorrento, left. Pictures: Andrew Mackinnon, www.aquamanships.com

Second navy ship hitches a ride from Spain arrived on Blue Marlin in October 2012 and is expected to start sea trials next month before being handed to the navy later this year. Adelaide will be fitted out by BAE Systems at Williamstown shipyard before going into service, expected to be in 2016. The ships are 230 metres long, 32 metres wide, have a maximum draught of 7.18 metres and replace the navy’s existing amphibious ships, which support land forces. Adelaide will be partially “unfastened” over about two days, floated off when Blue Marlin

submerges over about 24 hours in 23 metres and then towed by tugs to Williamstown, where shipping lanes will be closed until Adelaide has docked. She will be berthed next to Canberra. Carrying Adelaide 12,000 nautical miles around the Cape of Good Hope in 45 days was not the heaviest task for Blue Marlin but was a challenge to load and transport as the hull protrudes 55 metres at the aft of Blue Marlin, almost the length of the 60-metre long Sorrento-Queenscliff ferries.

At full load, Canberra and Adelaide will each displace 27,851 tonnes, making them the largest ships to serve in the RAN. Blue Marlin can carry up to 76,000 tons, usually oil rigs, and was built in 2000 for Dockwise. It is 224 metres long and 63 metres wide. It lost its title as the world’s largest semi-submersible heavy lift ship in late 2012 when Dutch company Dockwise took delivery of Vanguard, which can carry up to 110,000 tonnes. In a statement, BAE’s Bill Saltzer said work had proceeded at a rapid pace in the past few months in

preparation for the Adelaide hull’s arrival. “Construction, consolidation and advance outfitting of the four sections of the superstructure has been undertaken at our Williamstown yard with fabrication of the mast modules undertaken at our Henderson shipyard in Western Australia.” Mr Saltzer said Canberra had “effectively been completed and has successfully conducted a number of vehicle load trials to validate the vessel’s vast storage and operational spaces”.

By Mike Hast THE world’s second-largest semisubmersible transport ship MV Blue Marlin steamed through The Heads into Port Phillip early on Friday morning carrying the newest vessel of the Royal Australian Navy. The hull of LHD Adelaide, the second of the navy’s new amphibious ships, was built at the renowned naval shipyard in Ferrol in northern Spain by Navantia and launched in July 2012 prior to further work being completed. It is a sister ship to LHD (Landing Helicopter Dock) Canberra, which

Fishermen rescued as wave tips boat By Chris Brennan TWO fishermen were taken to hospital, one in a critical condition, after a large wave capsized their boat off Point Nepean on Saturday. A 25-year-old Rowville man found floating face-down in the water was rescued by a passing commercial fishing boat operator about 9.30am. He was taken to Queenscliff where water police officers administered first aid before he was flown to Royal Melbourne Hospital. The boat’s owner, a 36-year-old Mornington man, was found washed up near Cheviot Beach by a police helicopter about 9.40am. He was winched aboard and flown to Rosebud Hospital for treatment of cuts and bruises. The incident follows three sea rescues involving the police air wing and water police already this month. Two Mornington Peninsula fishermen were rescued by police helicopter after their boat capsized about four kilometres off the coast of Tootgarook last week. A 34-year-old man of Rosebud and a 22-year-old of Rye were winched to safety after being spotted by Victoria Police air wing about two nautical miles (3.7 kilometres) north of the Tootgarook boat ramp at 1pm on Tuesday 4 February. Victoria Police rescue coordination centre launched an air and sea search

about 12.50pm after receiving reports of two people in the water. Police said the men’s boat had overturned after taking on water during a fishing trip. They were spotted within 10 minutes of the search starting, and winched to safety aboard the police helicopter. Neither sustained any injuries. Water Police Sergeant Andrew Lilly said the incident served another timely reminder of the inherent dangers of boating and was the third such rescue within 24 hours. “In this case, the two fishermen were wearing lifejackets and stayed with their overturned boat, which probably saved their lives,” he said. “It was another lucky outcome from a potentially life-threatening situation. “We cannot stress the importance of water safety enough – please always ensure you have the necessary safety equipment on board and check the weather conditions before heading out on the water.” The previous day, three yachtsmen attempting to sail from Melbourne to Tasmania were rescued 53 nautical miles off Wilsons Promontory after their 11-metre, twin-masted yacht was overwhelmed in turbulent seas. The sailors, including one man aged in his 70s, were located by an Ambulance Victoria helicopter after setting off the yacht’s distress beacon. They were rescued by a passing cargo ship at 9.45pm on Monday 3 February.

Earlier that day, a man and his threelegged dog were rescued after they became stranded in their 3.6-metre fibreglass vessel in Port Phillip near Point Cook. The Victoria Police Rescue Coordination Centre launched an air and sea search about 5pm on Monday after reports the man, 43, had not returned to shore. They were located near Point Cook about 6.20pm by the Victoria Police helicopter and rescued by a Water Police vessel a short time later. Police said the Portarlington man had not been wearing a lifejacket. Water Police Leading Senior Constable Mark Hurwood said the man and his dog were lucky to have survived their ordeal and issued a reminder to all boat users to ensure they wear an approved lifejacket. “We were concerned because of the weather conditions out on the bay this afternoon. The outcome of this rescue could have been very different,” he said. “Victoria Police urges all boat users to always wear an approved lifejacket. This is required by law for vessels 4.8 metres and under, when people are alone or at night. “We also want people to check the weather before they go out, let someone know before they go and where they are going, and make sure they always stay with their boat or craft.”

Plan to build trail’s ‘missing link’ By Keith Platt PLANS are being drawn up to complete the missing links on the Bay Trail between Dromana and McCrae. Cyclists are forced to leave the trail at the busiest time of the year because of caravans on the foreshore reserve. Unless they want to push their bikes through the crowded camping area, riders must go on Point Nepean Rd, despite there being no designated bike lane around the cliff base at Anthonys Nose. A draft plan for the Bay Trail to be made alongside the road on the outside of the camping reserve will be released in July. Mornington Peninsula Shire’s infrastructure strategy manager Alison Leighton said construction of the trail would depend on state government funding. The shire’s Bay Trail Missing Links Project is aimed at giving high priority to filling in the missing sections of the trail. “The section from Dromana to McCrae around Anthonys Nose has been identified as being a high priority for completion, and significant work has been undertaken to progress the trail at this location,� Ms Leighton said. “This work has included identifying the appropriate alignment, consulting with a range of parties – Dromana Foreshore Committee of Management, Peninsula Power Boat Club, VicRoads and the Department of Environment and Primary Industries – and completing a detailed cultural heritage assessment.� The plans being drawn up propose

ernment to ensure that at least 10 per cent of all camping sites were available to new campers to “improve equity of access� have been put on hold by the current Coalition government. Many of the campers are members of Peninsula Power Boat Club, which has been operating the adjacent boat ramp under licence from the foreshore committee since 1957. The foreshore committee has suggested moving Point Nepean Rd seven metres inland into Latrobe Reserve to allow the missing one kilometre of Bay Trail to be built alongside the camping area. Ron Elleray, chairman of the foreshore committee’s caravan park committee, last year predicted the Bay Trail would go alongside Point Nepean Rd. “The caravan park can’t be closed because we rely on the income from the campers,� he said. “It’s a known fact there are [safety] problems with cyclists and pedestrians, but there is no Bay Trail through the camping ground.� He said the foreshore committee did not want the trail going either through or alongside the camping ground until a decision had been made on how it would be built around Anthonys Nose. “There is no point sending people through to the boat ramp area if the trail doesn’t go past Anthonys Nose.�

First round goes to duck-diving Fish FLINDERS surfer Georgia Fish won the first round of the Victorian Open series in challenging conditions at Gunnamatta last Saturday week. “The waves were really fun, but there was heaps of duck-diving and paddling,” Fish said. “Last year was a real learning curve for me on the World Qualifying Series, but I’m really looking forward to this year. This is a good start.” The final saw Fish dominate with scores of 8.50 and 8.40, showing her knowledge of the break. Zoe Clarke (Jan Juc) came second with 7.67. Courtney Dunlop (Phillip Island) was third and Tabby Vockler (Mt Eliza) fourth. Jack Perry, of Jan Juc, won the men’s division after placing second in heats. “It was pretty hard out there; there were lots of close outs and wash-through sets. But when you got onto one, they were sick,” he said. The win sees Perry automatically given a spot in the 2014 Rip Curl Pro Pre-trials His trials win last saw Perry gain entry to the main event, eventually facing off against Joel Parkinson and Gabriel Medina. “It would be awesome to make it through again, but I’m just happy with winning this comp. It has been a while since I’ve won an event,” he said. Caiden Fowler, of Mt Eliza, was comfortable in his home break and rode the highest-scoring wave of the day, 8.67, in his semi-final. Fowler eventually came fourth with 9.23 points, behind Harrison Mann (Torquay) 10.13 and Steve Noble (Cape Paterson) 11.74. Perry took out the final with a 6.73-point wave in the last minute to tally 12.23. The competition’s next round is at Phillip Island on 1 March.

Play money SORRENTO Preschool has won a state government grant of $10,000 to improve play areas and facilities. The money is part of $700,000 for 87 kindergartens across the state. Nepean MP Martin Dixon said the grant would go toward a veranda that “will extend the centre’s learning space outdoors�. “These valuable projects enhance the way families and children use, enjoy and engage with their local early years services,� Mr Dixon said. Minister for Children and Early Childhood Development Wendy Lovell said the minor grants were part of the state government’s recently announced $20 million children’s capital grants program. “The capital grants will deliver modern infrastructure to parts of the state where demand for early childhood education and care services is strongest.�

Dancing Queens stepping out to help EIGHT Mornington Peninsula women are going for a walk in Melbourne next month to raise money for research at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. They hope to raise $16,000 through sponsorship of their walk during the inaugural Weekend to End Women’s Cancers as well as a movie night at Mornington. During the 60-kilometre walk on 1 and 2 March, they will join thousands of cancer survivors, their friends, family and other supporters walking through the city’s “scenic and diverse neighbourhoods�. The peninsula group was formed after Gill Raeburn’s treatment for breast cancer. “We are all her friends, but we have all been touched by family and friends who’ve had the disease,� Sue Sanders said. “We have had a great time raising money so far, doing many sausage sizzles, exercise mornings, garage sales and chocolate drive, plus donations from people we know, but we are struggling to raise the last $3000.� Statistics show that one in eight Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, and one in three Australians will be diagnosed with cancer before they are 85. The Dancing Queens have made the bold commitment to end women’s cancers by participating in the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers. The Dancing Queens team – Sue Sanders, Michelle Nagy, Sue Leake, Julie Stevens, Nikki Arnott, Karen Raeburn, Marion Wood and Gillian

“We each need to do our part in this fight. “I tackled my cancer one step at a time and hope to make a difference by completing this walk one step at a time with my great team of friends.�

Website homes in on teen violence PENINSULA Health has helped develop a website that addresses the growing problem of violence committed by teenagers against members of their own family. The website, www.avith.com.au, which will be launched this week, is a one-stop resource for adolescents, families, carers and professionals working with families where there is adolescent violence in the home. Police call-outs to family violence incidents where an adolescent was the offender more than doubled in Victoria from 2154 incidents in 2006 to 4483 last year. The violence can take the form of threats of violence by a teen against one or more family member, intimidation, damage to property, physical violence, emotional or financial abuse or any behaviour that makes family members fearful. The website was funded through a Legal Services Board of Victoria project and developed by Peninsula Health in partnership with Victorian Legal Aid and City of Greater Dandenong youth services. Peninsula Health was last year awarded a $750,000 grant from the state government to provide a three-year Keeping Families Safe program that provides support both for families where an adolescent uses violence in the home and the adolescents themselves. Peninsula Health director of complex services Bel Berry said the website was an Australian first and provided a vital resource to help curb violence committed by adolescents in the home. “Many of the families we support tell us they didn’t know what to do about their violent children because they couldn’t find any information about this particular type of violence, why it hap-

pens or what they could do to stop it,” she said. “The website will go a long way toward closing the information gap by providing practical information for parents and carers as well as adolescents affected by adolescent violence in the home, and for professionals in the field.” She said it included downloadable resources and links to specialist legal and justice services, family and adolescent violence services, crisis phone numbers, and support groups. “The website is a practical and helpful tool that will complement early intervention initiatives like the Keeping Families Safe program we provide at Peninsula Health.” A report into adolescent violence funded and developed through the same project will also be released on February 11 to coincide with the website launch. The Last Resort: Pathways to Justice report explores the experiences and perspectives of a group of adolescents aged 12 to 18 years who have used violence against family members and ended up in the justice system. It also highlights the experience of family members, mostly parents, who were victims of violence. In one recommendation, the report calls for improved communication and links between police, legal and community sectors. “One of the issues identified was that the policies and protocols used by the justice system in Victoria deal mainly with adult family violence,” Ms Berry said. “However, adolescent offenders and their families deserve a more targeted response to help break the cycle of violence that so often carries on into the adolescents’ adult relationships.”

LETTERS Traffic solution IT’S pretty obvious none of our local councillors live in Sorrento because if they had to put up with the traffic gridlock during the summer holidays they’d actually do something about it. I live near St Pauls Rd about one kilometre out of Sorrento and every day the traffic is banked up on Point Nepean and Melbourne roads. If I want to go to Portsea back beach it takes me 20-30 minutes just to get through Sorrento – it’s ridiculous. The cause of the congestion is because all these idiots want to drive up and down the main street of Sorrento looking for car parks that don’t exist, causing major traffic congestion. The simple solution is to ban cars from the main street during peak holiday times so all the traffic must keep moving. Cars can park behind Coles or even at Sorrento football ground with drivers and passengers walking into town or Mornington Peninsula Shire can provide a shuttle service from the oval to the main street. Having the main street for pedestrians only would make it so much more attractive, relaxing and safer while giving cafes the opportunity to have more outdoor tables. The shire could implement a temporary “green” space and provide options for live outdoor music and entertainment and art installations. It would make the street a more pleasant environment for everyone to enjoy. Who wants to sit outside having a coffee or meal next to a busy road breathing in carbon monoxide? The shire recently installed a children’s play area in front of the shops, which is all well and good but it’s right next to the road where they’re exposed to dangers of vehicles and

high levels of carbon monoxide and lead. It seems counter-intuitive. The shire has installed signs as you enter Sorrento saying “Live the Life” – does that mean come to Sorrento to sit in a traffic jam? It’s time this council got more creative and forward-thinking in addressing this problem. I don’t doubt many of the businesses in the main street would immediately oppose any idea of closing it off to cars, but as has been proven in other major tourist areas where similar plans have been implemented, it actually benefits them by making the street more of a tourist attraction. It could be done as a trial to see if there are benefits. Matthew Mackay, Sorrento

MP should heed community NEPEAN MP Martin Dixon’s advertising campaign is based on the statement “Protecting the Peninsula”. If he actually believes this, he should publicly renounce his previous support for the construction of the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (SPA) on the Rosebud foreshore. Foreshore areas are great assets of the Mornington Peninsula and need to be protected from a completely inappropriate development such as SPA. While we all know politicians don’t like doing backflips, Mr Dixon has a genuine “get out” position. At the time of his support for the foreshore site, the shire council had neither purchased Wannaeue Place (Rosebud Central shopping centre) nor voted on the foreshore site as the preferred location for SPA. I think community members (that is, Mr Dixon’s electorate) who want

an aquatic centre will welcome his continued support, but perhaps the largest section of the community supporting the development SPA is completely against the foreshore location. Mr Dixon should get on the front foot now and publicly support SPA on a non-foreshore location, rather than find out first-hand the level of public discontent over the proposed location during November’s state elections. Ian Bennett, Fingal

Revealing SPA views THE two articles by Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors Hugh Fraser and David Gibb about the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (The News, 21/1/14) are very revealing. I applaud Cr Hugh Fraser’s arguments (“A Rosebud foreshore pool or not?”) and find them appealing, being one of the three people at Boneo Market who refused to sign a petition to put SPA on the foreshore. I think Cr Fraser’s article has strengthened my resolve to oppose it. Rosebud is noted for its retirees. Cr Gibb (“Foreshore is best place for pool”) blithely skips over the fact that every time there is an increase in ratepayers’ costs, some find it difficult to meet the increases. Even for those who are employed, increases in rates – especially for a swimming pool – will not go down well. Some people in the Rosebud area, I believe, attend the Hastings pool for aquarobic sessions, etc. So the expected patrons for the Rosebud pool are likely to forego their Hastings visits, perhaps increasing that pool’s deficits.

Lastly, Cr Gibb’s lauding of the facility as increasing patronage of local cafes and restaurants is shot down by a cafe/restaurant being included in SPA. I can’t see patrons of the pool crossing the road to get their coffee and snacks when there is the opportunity to sit in the SPA drinking and eating while admiring the view. If SPA is built on the foreshore, it should be named Gibb’s Folly. And I think it is despicable that Cr Andrew Dixon, elected on a promise to vote against the foreshore site, has reneged. He should go far in politics. Name supplied, Rosebud

No foreshore THE scary thing about Cr David Gibb’s opinion piece (“Foreshore is best place for pool”, The News, 21/1/14) is that he believes it. If he had checked sites closer to home on his trip, he would have noted the aquatic centre site at Frankston is not on the foreshore and neither is the proposed site on Phillip Island, several kilometres from Cowes. Pelican Park at Hastings was built on a discontinued tip site. Waurn Ponds in Geelong is not on the foreshore, so where exactly is Cr Gibb’s Waurn Ponds? Since 2005, the shire had been continually told by the Labor state government to choose an inland site for the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (SPA) because the Coastal Management Act requires foreshore structures to be coastal dependent. Liberal Environment Minister Ryan Smith has given “in principle” support for the use of Crown land for this folly (I don’t know if he realises the complex is getting bigger with every council meeting) but he has set several conditions of which only one has been

met. The bus is not viable as a means of transport as it is linear. Unless you live on Point Nepean Rd, how can you access it without walking any distance from inland? Will children five years and under be allowed to travel on their own on the bus? The costings that were presented to councillors on 9 December were from 2005 and therefore out of date. The presenter could not give them an up-to-date set of figures on the night. Councillors therefore were voting for this large complex totally blind as far as costings were concerned. I have been told Rosebud Physiotherapy Centre was not allowed to include a warm water pool in its new establishment. Why? The council voted against David Gibb in 1997 when he wanted Rosebud foreshore for a very large marina (which was coastal dependent). Put SPA at Wannaeue Place or on shire (our) land in front of the shire offices in Boneo Rd if we must have our debt increased. John Cain, McCrae

Walking problems OLDER adults value the many benefits of walking. Research shows walking is their most common form of physical activity, whether it be for leisure, pleasure or to get around. However, there are many obstacles to walking that result in them missing out on improved health, wellbeing, independence, personal mobility and friendships. A Victoria Walks survey of 1128 seniors found that inadequate footpaths, dogs not leashed or under control, poor street lighting at night, irresponsible drivers and the behaviour of some cyclists on shared

paths are preventing thousands of seniors from enjoying the health and wellbeing benefits of walking and physical activity. Traffic-related and fall injuries among older pedestrians also impact on their walking, yet we expect them to just fit in. This is not good enough. We need to stop telling seniors to take extra care while walking and create road environments that take care of them. With the ageing of the population, increasing walking levels is a social and economic imperative. We need more age-friendly neighbourhoods throughout Victoria that are built for walking with better access to shops, services and public transport within one kilometre of housing.

Victoria Walks calls on all levels of government to work together and get serious about supporting seniors to stay active and healthy and connected to their communities. We urge them to follow the recommendations of the Senior Victorians and walking: obstacles and opportunities report (www.victoriawalks. org.au/seniors).

Election-bound: Reade Smith is the Mutual Party’s candidate for the upper house seat of Eastern Victoria Region at the state election. He is pictured at a climate rally in Frankston last year. Picture: Gary Sissons

Reade Smith stands for Mutual Party By Mike Hast FORMER shire councillor Reade Smith is the Mutual Party’s candidate for the upper house seat of Eastern Victoria at the state election in November. Mr Smith represented Western Port-based Cerberus Ward 2010-12 on Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and was Mt Eliza Ward’s councillor in 2000-10. The Tyabb resident and self-described social entrepreneur, community developer and farmer stood for Family First Party in the Flinders electorate at the 2010 federal election, winning 2198 votes, or 2.4 per cent, of 94,000 votes. He quit Family First last year after disagreeing with its climate policy, which he said did not support the concept of human-induced climate change. Mr Smith unsuccessfully ran for pre-selection for the Liberal Party at the 2006 state election in Eastern Victoria. The Mutual Party was formed late last year by Centre for Civil Society director Vern Hughes who co-founded the short-lived People Power Party with shareholder activist Stephen Mayne in 2000. Mr Hughes said it was “a broad-based, centrist political party that aims to win seats in federal, state and local governments, and enable ordinary citizens to reclaim ownership of our democracy�. “We welcome people from across the traditional left-right spectrum by emphasising the empowerment of citizens and civil society; collaboration across social divisions and political backgrounds; local initiatives and practical solutions to economic, social and environmental challenges; and stronger community relationships and responsibilities.� Mr Hughes has reportedly said he was confi-

dent the party would hold the balance of power after the election. He said the party planned to field candidates in all upper and lower house seats, and about half were current or former councillors. “Our aim is to get community people with strong local connections,� he said. “We want to enable ordinary citizens to reclaim ownership of our democracy.� Mutual Party member Joanne Stuart said Mr Smith is “a social entrepreneur, community developer and farmer�. “He is a former senior constable in the Victoria Police, a youth worker, and facilitator of community projects in community safety, men’s health, social capacity building and social enterprise. “He co-founded the Mornington Peninsula branch of Dads in Distress and leads Be the Change Australia.� Mr Smith said his “current passions include community and small business development, sustainable development, innovative waste management, alternative energy and fuels, support for craft brewing, aquaculture, wild and native foods, food security, urban food gardens, and cycling�. Mr Smith told The News he would be running a “frugal campaign� and would be his own campaign manager. He said he had known Vern Hughes since he first joined the shire council and admired his philosophies. Mr Smith works on two peninsula farms, as property manager of a property in Tyabb and as a worker at the Mt Martha commercial hydroponic business of former colleague Cr Anne Shaw and her husband Chris.

Southern Peninsula News 11 February 2014

PAGE 13


NEWS DESK

Time to face facts on SPA OPINION By David Harrison DEBATE on the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (SPA) has become a bewildering storm of claim and counter-claim, fact and fiction. In a debate as important as this – a $35-plus million centre, the costliest project councillors have yet voted on – ratepayers, who will foot the bill, are entitled to know what is fact and what is not, and who is spinning dream and fantasy. Cr David Gibb's article (“Foreshore is best place for pool”, The News, 21/1/14) favoured the foreshore site for SPA but contained some inaccuracies that need correcting to ensure an informed debate occurs. The article contained a series of points, some correct, some not so reliable, and some completely unreliable. Here are some facts – indisputable and checkable. The list is far from exhaustive. First, the need for public transport for pool users was dealt with at great length and lauded as a plus for the foreshore site. Fact: the foreshore and the alternative Wannaeue Place site are about equidistant from the Point Nepean Rd bus route. The foreshore has no advantage. Second, Cr Gibb deplored the locating of facilities far from public transport, citing Monash University and a new magistrates' court complex in Highett. Fact: the Highett courts are 10-15 minutes’ walk from Highett railway station and a bus route. Third, studies have found that only

a few per cent of pool patrons use public transport. The article produced no facts to counter this. Fourth, the claimed 60,000 to 100,000 potential pool users could be considered a gross exaggeration, considering the first figure is 40 per cent of all permanent peninsula residents and the second is about the 33 per cent of the total summer population. Are these facts? No. Believable? No. Not even the shire case argues such massive potential patronage. Fifth, the claim of shops and offices being built on the Queenscliff foreshore may refer to buildings at the Queenscliff marina – hardly “foreshore” in the SPA context. At least two councillors have argued that “foreshore” is between the low and high water marks. So has Environment Minister and lFlinders MP Greg Hunt. “Foreshore” is “coastal Crown land up to 200 metres [inland] from the high water mark”, according to the draft Victorian Coastal Strategy and the Melway street directory. The strategy actually mistakenly says “seaward” not “inland”. Sixth, and very important, is the government’s requirements for any proposed foreshore development. The draft coastal strategy states:  “Because coastal Crown land is a precious and limited resource, only buildings and infrastructure that functionally need to be located near the water, or which significantly contribute to the social values of the area ... should be located on coastal Crown land. For example: jetty, marina, mooring, boat ramp, boathouse, port,

harbour, lookout towers of life saving clubs, marine rescue facility” (p 53). SPA at Wannaeue Place (also known as Ritchies supermarket, at Rosebud Central shopping centre) would contribute equally to the area’s social values, with the added social benefit of not occupying precious coastal Crown land.  Facilities that “do not need a coastal location and [do] not support coastal activity, [are to] be relocated as the opportunity arises – [for example] function centre, community hall, nonmaritime industrial plant and storage, non-waterbased sporting facility e.g. bowling green, sports field” (p 53). So Rosebud Memorial Hall and the derelict preschool should be moved off the foreshore as soon as feasible.  Use of coastal Crown land must demonstrate the “need to be sited on the coast, based on support for, and direct linkage to, coastal activities”.  It must also demonstrate that “the use and development cannot be feasibly located elsewhere”.  And it must demonstrate “responsiveness to the site values and that net community benefit results from the use and development being located on coastal Crown land"  Net community benefit “will be determined by considering the likely environmental, social and economic outcomes of the proposal” (p 54), On these criteria, SPA – with no proper business case yet done, no comprehensive plans and as a lossmaking venture – has only a slim claim to the foreshore site, based solely on “net community benefit”, a

case so far made almost exclusively by assertion, not by facts. Seventh, foreshore site proponents have so far merely claimed it would be more expensive to build at Wannaeue Place. Where are the facts to prove this? Eighth, a “warm water” pool is not a “hydrotherapy” pool, as the article claimed, and it is unfortunate that people needing hydrotherapy would be misled. Fact: the shire dropped plans for a hydrotherapy pool when it realised the expense of heating it to 34 degrees, the need for intensive filtering, changing the water frequently, and the cost of physiotherapists and other trained staff. Ninth, the assertions made about costs, borrowings and repayments barely rise above financial gibberish. But the facts of that argument need another article at another time. Tenth, it is misleading to claim that Geelong’s Waurn Ponds aquatic and recreation centre owes its success to high visibility. As one of only two aquatic centres serving Geelong (population 225,450), demand is high for this inland complex, which is surrounded by high-growth suburbia; has extensive features including a 50-metre pool, sauna, water slides, gym and other attractions; and is in extensive parkland next to a large shopping precinct. SPA on Rosebud foreshore will have little expansion space for popular features such as water slides, a raft ride, and a Spacebowl unless it takes over even more precious Crown land. And that’s a fact.

Coast conservation grants up for grabs CONSERVATION groups on the Mornington Peninsula can apply for a share of $200,000 in state government funding for marine and coastal protection projects. Successful applicants for the Coastcare Victoria Community Grants Program will receive up to $20,000 to fund projects that protect and enhance coastal and marine environments. Nepean MP Martin Dixon said the grants program aimed to help groups take “practical local action to protect critical habitat, manage erosion and enhance knowledge about coastal protection on the peninsula”. “We’re looking for applications that focus on works such as biodiversity and habitat protection, revegetation, weed and pest control, and community engagement,” he said. Previous projects on the peninsula had proved highly successful in helping reinstate natural ecosystems, which had allowed the return of species such as native orchids and small native animals, Mr Dixon said. “Thousands of Victorians do a fantastic job along the coast in volunteer groups such as Coastcare, Landcare, foreshore committees of management, education providers and environmental groups. “In recent times I have been able to inspect areas of our coastal scrubland after removal of invasive weeds has been funded through similar programs. The funding we provide for local land care really does make a difference.” Applications close 21 February. To apply or for more details, visit www. depi.vic.gov.au/coastcare

From peninsulaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot sands to dark Arctic days By Mike Hast AS the peninsula copes with a long, hot summer and record-breaking temperatures, Mornington scientist Amelia Travers has been rugged up to cope with the frozen world of the Arctic where the sun makes only a brief appearance each day. During January, Ms Travers, 26, was on Norwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Svalbard Island in the Greenland Sea close to the Arctic Circle, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most northern permanently inhabited island. She was part of an international team of scientists studying marine life with the Marine Night field campaign, part of Mare Incognitum. The team used high-tech underwater robots, autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs for short) as well as other high-tech equipment including time lapse photography. Ms Travers is studying for a Masters of Antarctic Science at Tasmania Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies. A prolific writer, she has been producing a blog charting what she calls a â&#x20AC;&#x153;once in a lifetime adventureâ&#x20AC;?. The robots were at the high-tech end of tools used for the research but the scientists, Ms Travers included, also donned polar survival suits to install equipment to guide the AUVs. Divers investigated species such as the ghost shrimp to dispel the misconception that the dark polar night is best compared with a biological desert void of any activity. Weather on the island ranged from below freezing with heavy snow to days of above zero, which saw the islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s runway closed due to ice,

trapping a radio crew from France and delaying the arrival of a TV crew from Norway. The Marine Night expedition is big news in Europe. On 20 January, Ms Travers wrote about the light: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was incredibly bright (relatively speaking, my sunglasses are still in their case) this morning with a beautiful â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sunriseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. This was followed by an incredibly sudden drop of the sun and pitch blackness, the kind of dark where you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see your hand in front of you, although you can see some amazing stars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A few hours later, the full moon rose. This all happened within a matter of hours, and I think it must have a

pretty amazing impact on the creatures living here to have such different light environments within such short periods of time.â&#x20AC;? Three days later, Ms Travers described herself for the expanding readership of her blog: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you see someone slipping on ice, tripping over snow in the dark or staring in wonder at icicles, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably me. I was raised in southern Australia during one of the longest periods of drought so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still amazed by all this frozen water just sitting around not doing anything. On the other hand, I am mentally well equipped to deal with the water shortage weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re currently experiencing! (4 minute showers every 2 days, just

like being at home!).â&#x20AC;? On Australia Day, Ms Travers spotted some bioluminescence off the pier near the laboratory at Kongsfjord: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what it was, some kind of jelly-like critter, bobbing and flashing away. It was pretty awesome and surreal! The divers have got some completely amazing footage of creatures we landlubbers could almost never imagine. These creatures make the aliens on Star Trek look dull.â&#x20AC;? Ms Travers compared her frozen workplace with the Australian desert in one entry: â&#x20AC;&#x153;But being here is most akin to being in the middle of the Australian desert. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fine as long as the electricity keeps

running and the water fills the pipes, but something fails or you walk a bit too far from home, everything changes. They are equally stark, harsh and dangerously beautiful places. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The walk to the lab, along maybe 100 metres of dark road, can be so different depending on the situation. Alone it can be beautiful and tranquil with a peaceful silence that seeps under your skin until you can feel the isolation as a blanket that reminds you how close the wilds are, how fresh the air is and how untamed some places still are. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Or it can be the freakiest 100 metres of your life where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re absolutely convinced a polar bear is going to eat you and every shadow is a harbinger of doom and death.â&#x20AC;?

PENINSULA HAPPENINGS Maintaining your mobility TODAY’S seniors have never been more on the go. Between postponing retirement and participating in sports and activities once relegated to the young, most people over the age of 65 are living much more active lives than their parents did. Given this trend, it is clear that mobility plays a critical role for the geriatric population. Yet by their 70s and 80s, many seniors develop certain disabilities or chronic medical conditions that can seriously impact their ability to stay active. Fortunately, because of advances in mobility aids, a wide array of products are available to help the elderly live as independently and actively as possible. In addition, a great number of resources from Web sites to funding programs can now help

THE Peninsulas FRESHEST MARKET

seniors in their quest for more fulfilling lives. Three-wheeled mobility systems, also known as scooters, are becoming increasingly popular among the elderly. Scooters are useful for individuals who can walk short distances but need help for long distances. Even though scooters have been around for a long time, they have undergone some of the biggest improvements. Power seats, flip-back arms, adjustable bases, gear drive systems that provide 60 kilometres to a charge, and attractive colors are enhancements found in today’s scooters. Western Port Mobility are your local experts on mobility devices and home living aids. They are located at 5/1 Bray Street, Hastings. Phone: 1800 449 452.

WHAT’S NEW

Getting kids back to nature A NEW Kids’ Adventure Festival being launched today aims to tackle ‘nature deficit disorder’, which some experts argue link children’s declining engagement with the outdoors to a myriad of childhood issues from depression to obesity. The inaugural Kids’ Adventure Festival will provide children (and parents) with the opportunity to experience adventure activities specifically designed for the younger generation, with walks, runs, climbs, rides and plenty more ‘wild’ play planned for the weekend event. Taking place at the Mt Baw Baw Alpine Resort on 5-6 April 2014, the Festival will feature

all manner of activities aimed at re-engaging children with nature while introducing them to the huge variety of adventure pursuits that make the most of nature’s playground. Please refer to the attached Media Release for more information, and should you require more details or have promotional opportunities available, please do not hesitate in contacting myself or the Mt Baw Baw events team. Further updates and news will be available on www.kidsadventurefest.com.au and on the ‘Mt Baw Baw Kids Adventure Festival’ Facebook Page

A holistic approach to health ACUPUNCTURE is an ancient treatment that has been used in India, China, Japan, Vietnam and Korea for thousands of years. It started by using needles to stimulate meridian points that lie approximately 0.5mm under the skin. More recently in the past 40 or so years laser technology also became part of the treatment regime. Acupuncture is the treatment that underpins a complex and sophisticated style of diagnosis and practice, called Traditional Chinese Medicine, T.C.M. for short. This involves essentially balancing out these different meridians in the body. There are 12 in all, and represent underlying organs and functions of the body. The organs have energy, emotions and symptoms attributed to them. Interestingly the 2 styles of medicine share many similarities in the understanding of the human body. The unique way that TCM looks at the human body is a great addition

to western diagnostic skills and for treatment purposes where Western Medicine doesn’t have as much to offer. At Peninsula Holistic General Practice we often choose to use acupuncture to support many imbalances such as hormonal imbalance, energy imbalance, sleep disorders, migraine headaches, digestive issues, soft tissue injuries and stress to name but a few. Laser Acupuncture is also very effective for children, as there are no needles and therefore no fear or discomfort at all. Acupuncture can be fantastic for acute illnesses and injuries and children in particular show a rapid response due to their inherence vital energy. Acupuncture is available at Peninsula Holistic general Practice by Dr Michelle Woolhouse and Dr Calan Khong and attracts a Medicare rebate. For appointments please call 5986-4229

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Menacing bush fire season continues; painful accident befalls boy Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 14 February 1914 DURING the last fortnight bush fires that have been raging here, and on several occasions, strenuous efforts had to be made to save homesteads from destruction. The weather for some time having been so hot and dry, has caused the grass and scrub to be highly in flammable condition, so much so that a fire once started in grass or scrub soon gets beyond control and becomes a menace to property. *** MAURICE Taylor, one of the inmates of the Melbourne Boys’ Seaside Home, Frankston, met with a serious accident on Friday morning. He, with other children, was being driven into school by a sister of Mrs Ferguson, Mornington road, and it appears that when the boy was getting into the buggy the horse moved forward, and he in some manner became caught in the wheels. Mr Claude Grice, who drove along at the time, with great difficulty extricated him, and then drove him to Dr Maxwell’s, who found that he had sustained a compound fracture of the leg. The sufferer was taken to the hospital in Melbourne by the mid-day train. *** SINCE the beginning of the year no less than three bazaars have been held at Mornington, the total amount realised being £460. The Catholic bazaar and sale of gifts made a net profit of over £150. St Peter’s church, (Renovation Fund) benefited to the extent of £95, and the Convent Garden Fete £150.

*** THE Garden Fete organised by the Sisters of Mercy at Mornington, for the purpose of reducing the debt on the Central Novitiate at Ascot Vale, terminated on Saturday night last, and the exceptionally large crowd that was present thoroughly enjoyed the musical programme so capably arranged by Messrs Fogerty and Aitchison, and the selections rendered by St Vincent De Paul’s Band were highly appreciated. A great amount of business was done, and after the various raffles were drawn, the remaining articles were disposed of by auction. It is estimated that £150 profit will be realised from the effort. *** MR Allen Doherty, son of Mr W. J. Doherty, Mornington, sustained a nasty cut under the eye through the pony he was riding running him against a tree on Sunday last, and on Monday evening, Mr James Noble had the misfortune of cutting his arm so badly with the knife of a bacon cutter at Messrs A. Nunn and Sons, that it was necessary to insert six stitches. Both patients were attended to by Dr Somers. *** A GOOD many consignments of fruit have left here lately for Sydney, and prices have been good, but as large consignments are now arriving at Sydney and Brisbane a big fall in prices will result. Oversea markets will now receive most attention. The quality of fruit this season is not up to the average, black spot being much more in evidence. However, some orchards are free from spot and will benefit accordingly. Owing to the

degenerate mail service now existing here, the despatch of fruit for export is being diverted from the Langwarrin to the Frankston Railway Station. ***

Mr Allen Doherty, son of Mr W. J. Doherty, Mornington, sustained a nasty cut under the eye through the pony he was riding running him against a tree on Sunday last.

A SOCIETY which should prove a great advantage to the district has just been formed here in the form of a concert party of variety entertainers. All necessary officers have been elected, and practices, rehearsals, etc., will be held in the hall weekly on Monday evenings. Great difficulty has always been experienced when arranging a concert programme in securing enough local talent, and this

method should prove one of the best ways of training vocalists. *** THE fruitgrowers show committee have just about completed the schedule for the forthcoming show. Some further additions have been made to last year’s list, including some champion sections for competitors who have never previously won a champion prize. Arrangements are also being made for the engagement of some first-class city talent to appear on the evening of the show. Should weather permit, this forthcoming evening should eclipse all previous exhibitions. During the Saturday afternoon (April 4th), a very interesting cricket match will take place on the recreation ground between the local team and Rhyll. A large number of visitors is expected from the Island, which will add pleasure to the event. *** THE Methodist Sunday School celebrated their anniversary on Sunday last, when Mr A. C. Bowman preached three times. The congregations were good, and the children sang special hymns effectively, Miss A. Barber officiated at the organ. On Monday evening the annual concert and distribution of prizes took place. Rev. R. Jackson occupied the chair. A number of items were given by the children under the baton of Mr G. Reed. Song, “’Ring Bells Ring,” the children; recitation, Miss Nellie Unthank; solo, “Auntie,” Miss Dorothy Reed; song, “Shepherd’s Lullaby,” Kindergarten class; recitation, Master Normann Unthank; solo, “The Gift of Life,” Miss Florrie Vines; song. “Little Children,” Miss Mary Evans;

Song, “The Gum Tree,” children; recitation, “Mother’s Almanac,” Miss Dorothy Overton; solo, “Land across the Sea,” Miss Nellie Reed; song, Kindergarten class. The chairman presented the prizes. The secretary, Mr W. Barber, read the secretary’s report, which showed a great amount of work having been done, and a credit balance of some £10 in hand. *** THE annual meeting of the Mechanics’ Hall was held recently, and the balance sheet showed a credit balance of £101, This is due to the energy of the committee of management, which includes in its members Mr “Bob” Kelly. He is the indefatigable worker; he never strikes. The election of officers resulted as follows:- President, Mr G. W. Reed; Vice-president, Dr Griffih; Treasurer, Mr W. Martin; Secretary, Mr A. G. Carver; Dr Griftith and Mr Percy Thornell were re-elected on the committee. *** MR G. F. Coop suffered a severe loss last week when his father, Sir Geo. Coop, of Williamstown, died. The funeral took place at the Williamstown cemetery on Saturday last, and was largely attended. Deceased, who was 70 years of age, during his twenty-four years’ residence at Williamstown was successively licensee of the Rifle Club, Steam Packet and Bristol Hotels. In his early days, the late Mr Coop earned a reputation as a wrestler, and, was associated with Professor Miller. His father was the founder of the first shot factory in Victoria, an establishment in Little Collins Street.

FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

I am man, watch me barbecue By Stuart McCullough ON a technical level, a man is a man solely by dint of chromosomal composition. Slap an X and a Y chromosome together and before you can say “Leyland brothers”, you’ve got yourself a living breathing male. But this is too technical a definition for some. Luckily, there’s a simpler test; one that allows the mechanical nitty gritty to be ignored if not wholly disregarded. I speak of the barbecue. I’m not suggesting for one moment that access to the altar of burnt meat should be restricted along gender lines. Far from it. In fact, I feel strongly that all who wish to stand in front of the outdoor grill should strap on their apron of choice, pick up a pair of tongs and get down to it. There’s room for everyone. It’s more that I am never more aware of my masculine self then when attending to what might broadly be referred to as ‘barbecue duties’. For some mystical reason, standing inertly in front of an open grill brings with it a surging sense of machismo that you never get with soup. We were never the type of family that did our cooking outdoors for the sake of it. Only when the remaining alternative was starvation would the tongs and apron emerge and, even then, it was still very much a line ball proposition. There are several compelling reasons for our ‘in case of emergency, break glass’ approach to outdoor cooking. Chief amongst these was my father, whose deplorable ineptitude

when it came to any culinary art not involving toast made it the option of last resort. It’s often said that too many cooks spoil the broth. Although no one ever cooks broth on a barbecue, my father was responsible for a lot of groundbreaking research that proved poor results are not necessarily caused by the weight of numbers. You can spoil the broth and pretty

much anything else as a solo effort, so long as you really put your mind to it. These days, barbecues are massive; built like armoured vehicles and able to encase not just an entire pig but all its Facebook friends too. These monstrosities each have their own satellite and are more or less idiot-proof. The barbecue we had when I was growing up was tiny. It could barely be controlled at ground level much less from

outer space. Its size and rudimentary nature owed a lot to the fact that we took it camping – a place where options for cooking were necessarily limited. It was orange and sat on a tripod. The cooking surface was about the same size as a long-playing record. It was here that my father was expected to cook a meal for seven people. In retrospect, it was a mission doomed from the outset. It was without any modern extravagance. Forget glowing coals, briquettes or wire shelves where the cooked chops can ‘relax’ and bathe in their own juices before being hoisted onto the plate. Not that my father believed in ‘resting’ anything; when it came to cooking he prized one thing above all else — speed. This required the hot plate be cranked up to such an extreme level that birds unlucky enough to fly overhead wilted, so extreme was the heat. Whilst the pace was awesome, the end product left much to be desired. The sausages my father cooked all suffered the same fate: perfectly black with a crunchy charcoal exterior encasing raw sausage meat within. To burn your food is one thing, to undercook it another. But to succeed in doing both simultaneously is a feat few can master. Some may think Heston Blumenthal is some kind of wonderful for using a propane torch to bring cooking to life, but my father was doing much the same with a barbecue thirty years ago, with similarly inedible results. As something we did only when

camping, the barbecue was simply one more trial in a broader ordeal. The cramped living quarters, the lack of a television and the vampire mosquitoes were all part of two weeks we spent at Wilson’s Promontory each summer. At the time, all I wanted was to survive the experience and return home to the creature comforts to which I was so accustomed. But now I see it differently. When I think about it now, I can see my father standing beside our little orange barbecue, tongs in hand – raised as though preparing to fend off an attack. He always dressed for the occasion. By that I don’t mean that he put on a suit or a shirt with a collar. Rather, for reasons that will always remain unclear, my father would dress like a homeless person when he cooked sausages. A flannel hat that had seen better days (and a great many of them), his Rainbow Football Club socks and a pair of shorts that were hanging on for dear life. Despite the lack of technology, the disheveled appearance and the almost certainly dire results, my father never looked happier than when he was doing battle with the barbecue. Somehow, I’ve managed to reach middle age without ever owning a barbecue of my own. But, every once in a while, circumstances conspire and I am called upon to cook the sausages. It’s a responsibility I am willing to accept. I put on my flannel hat, football socks and shaggy shorts and get to work. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

WITH just over four weeks to go until Between the Bays Music Festival on Saturday 22 February, tickets for this year’s festival are selling fast. Between The Bays is not your average festival, set on a delightful 35-acre rural property in Moorooduc on the Mornington Peninsula, just a short 1-hour drive from Melbourne, it offers music lovers an all-inclusive community feel good festival option with a chilled out vibe that is inexpensive for the whole family. Now in its ninth year, Between the Bays is firmly established as Mornington Peninsula’s best annual summer music festival that also gives back to the community. All proceeds raised go to Penbank School’s partnership with the Wugularr School in the Northern Territory. This year’s massive line-up includes Tex Perkins with The Ape, Diesel, Daryl Braithwaite, The Basics, Boom Crash Opera and local act Russell Beggs kicking off the entertainment. “Our philosophy for Between the Bays Music Festival is that it is an all-inclusive, family affordable showcase of Australian music, and all things Mornington Peninsula. Whether you are five or 50, you will enjoy your day in a relaxed and safe atmosphere. It’s for everybody,” festival director Paul Thompson said. “It is not pretentious, exclusive and certainly not unaffordable. Tex Perkins, Diesel, Daryl Braithwaite and Boom Crash Opera with great food and beverages on hand and fun for the kids as well all for an adult price of $69.95….just show me better value for that price!” “I encourage people from Melbourne to jump on the new Peninsula Link, and 45mins later you will be at Between the Bays Music Festival - you won’t be disappointed”. Between The Bays is not just about music. There is something for everyone including children, food lovers and the wine and beer connoisseur. As the sun sets over the picturesque 35 acres in Moorooduc, broad range of culinary delights to keep you going throughout the day can be sampled - from a simple sausage sizzle, icecream treats, to yummy delights such as wood

fired pizzas, calamari, vegetarian options and wonderful coffee - including plenty of kidfriendly options as well. This year, you won’t be let down by the range of beverages as Between the Bays have employed festival specialists to run their bar. There will be an array of local beer and wine on hand with drinks available from gates open and for those not drinking alcohol, you are welcome to bring your own water bottle to refill throughout the day at the free water station. If you would rather bring your own food, feel free to pack your own gourmet picnic and bring it along (just remember no glass). The festival will once again have a great variety of kid’s rides; children will be able to purchase a wristband for unlimited rides throughout the day. Between the Bays takes place at Penbank, located at the end of Rickards Road in Moorooduc, Mornington Peninsula approximately 1 hour south of Melbourne. There are 35 beautiful acres to spread out in and enjoy the day, nestled between the bays (Western Port and Port Phillip Bay) and just five minutes from Mornington, which has many different accommodation options. If driving, there is parking on the site on the day, managed by The Lions Club on the day. The parking fee is just a gold coin donation. If you prefer not to drive, Between The Bays will again be running a shuttle bus to and from the festival site, with two-pick up/drop off points connecting with public transport running throughout the day and into the evening.  Between The Bays 2014, Saturday 22 February. Featuring Tex Perkins with The Ape, Diesel, Daryl Braithwaite, The Basics, Boom Crash Opera & Russell Beggs. Gates open at 2pm. Music will begin at 2.45pm and finish at about 10:30pm. Access to Between the Bays is via Rickards Road, Moorooduc. For more information and to buy tickets visit www.betweenthebays.com Facebook at www.facebook.com/betweenthebays


A Grain of Salt IT doesn’t take much for Labor to shoot themselves in the foot, helped considerably by the antics of left and right wing faction leaders Senators Kim Carr and Stephen Conroy posing as representatives of working people. 81 per cent vote for Christian Zahra in Macedon including the support of Daniel Andrews and Paul Keating and the pseudo democratic boys think differently. Then there’s Tea Party Tony in for the old sucker punch “are you with us or against us?” type of thing and away we go with the ABC taking the bait. Great Barrier Reef not in danger, says a Government report, similar to the Port Phillip Bay dredging. Crooked Union management inferences but no mention of crooked big business management. Geoff Shaw’s workcover injury. A main course of fun and (power) games with a heatwave for sweets. Moving on... *** THE true blue spirit of Australia Day, my day. I loaded up with Aussie flags on my car windows including the indigenous flags, a koala hanging from my inside rear vision mirror and a kangaroo sticker on the back window, hoisting the flag in my backyard flagpole; up and running. No point being half hearted. I treated myself to veal parmigiana to cap off the nationistic fervour. Our Aussie of the year said “We need to celebrate who we are as a nation”. Not sure what he meant, but if Adam said it, like Tony, or Peter Cosgrove, it’s OK by me. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie bloody Aussie. ***

Picture: Yanni

I WAS thinking back, as one does at my age approaching the 70s with little else on my mind, or is it the 80s? No matter. I finished school late December, had Chrissy and come 3 January, Dad took me to the city on the train for an interview, beginning my 20 years as a public servant. I wasn’t consulted on any career choice. School’s finished: time to get a job and pay board. Dad was generous, lent me 10 pounds to buy a suit, repaid so much each payday. Ambition? Never thought about it. I fell in love a few years later and did accountancy, but only because it apparently paid better. I can remember my ambition to win Tattersalls, and females, but beyond that very little. *** THE Peninsula Short Film Festival was run and won at Rosebud on 1 February; a fine idea to encourage our budding filmmakers. The judges were big names in Kerry Armstrong, Lachy

Hulme, Shane Jacobsen, Jane Hall, Debra Byrne and Anthony Hayes. Who selected them and the process of selection remains a mystery; I suppose a minor complaint. After all, when the Australian Academy of Film and Television Arts awards The Great Gatsby as best film and best director (Baz Luhrmann) what hope have we got? Kings by Thom Neal won the big prize, which was great for Thom, but I personally found others equally as good and some better. A question of taste. A great night and congratulations to Steve Bastoni and Meg Pascoe. *** THE Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre battle rages on. Geoff the barber assures me it’s fantasy and who in their right mind would challenge Geoff? Peter Curtain from Sorrento got stuck into Cr Andrew Dixon (Briars Ward) who voted for the pool (“he

SPORTINGBET

should resign, vote him out, his attitude needs to change”). Red Hill Ward Cr Frank Martin continues to cop his share. Christine Haydon says “we are getting tired of the same old answers (from Frank), 99 per cent of the constituents are apathetic”. Surely because the answers are not in agreement with her thinking? Hugh Fraser (Nepean Ward) joins the throng in opposition to the democratic vote followed by David Gibb (Seawinds Ward) setting out the reasons in favour of this mirage. I have no fixed opinion other than saying goodbye to the Rye Carnival and perhaps building the Aquatic Centre with an undercover 50-metre pool in its place. *** I LIKE the one about the sheep stealer hanged for stealing food, compelled by necessity because of intolerable hunger, thirst and near starvation. And the great man in office who may tyrannise, rob thousands and enrich himself (and his relatives), be uncontrollable in his actions, get titled, and no-one dare find fault. Maybe build a stature like they did for former great Generals in wars. Alexander the Great was sorry because there were no more worlds for him to conquer. He got a few statues; none for the thousands who died for and against from his madness. We’re over all that nonsense now, right? We live in the “fair go” country. Anyone can get ahead if they are prepared to “have a go”. The egalitarian ethos? The announcer asked the question of six lovely true blue Aussies: “Why are you proud to be an Australian?”. I must have missed something years back on

By Cliff Ellen

this question of pride. Every year prior to Australia Day I’m reminded. Eureka, the apology to Aboriginal Australians, sporting prowess, Australian flags flying: jingoism, nationalism? “Something to be proud of” appears to be the catch cry. On being an Australian? No! I’m not proud. I’m happy enough, lucky to have been born here, really lucky if the kids aren’t asking for money; happy for them and particularly myself. *** THE late great Phillip Hoffman in his Oscar acceptance speech (for the movie Capote) said “Be proud Mom, ‘cause I’m proud of you”. Nice. To each his or her own, but pride, as I see it, is nonsense...A Liberal Party voter is one who believes Tea Party Tony’s “efficiency study” really is an efficiency study...It’s one thing to be saddled with four more years of Tony, but signing Nathan Buckley for another two beyond this year is going too far... AFL football fast approaches and with it being “in the mix” and “ticking all the boxes” and “taking us through it” return to haunt us… “Sanity and happiness are an impossible combination” [Mark Twain] hooroo... www.ello8.com cliffie9@bigpond.com

At the Bendigo it starts with U.

Mounties a real championship threat PROVINCIAL By IT Gully MT ELIZA has stormed into the MPCA Provincial top four after smashing Long Island on Saturday. The Mounties replaced the Islanders in the top bracket after going within one wicket of claiming an outright win. Somehow, the Islanders were able to survive the final 49 overs of the day, finishing on 9/75 in their second innings. Seasoned campaigners Andrew Tweddle and Greg Lamb had to survive some tense moments before the end of play. Mt Eliza resumed on Saturday at 6/145 after bowling out Long Island for just 78 in 31.5 overs on day one. Rob Maskiel made 22, Jason Mathers 42 and Nicholas Baron 19 before the Mounties declared their innings at 9/225. Scott Phillips was the pick of the

Islanders’ bowlers with 5/72 from 31 overs. When Long Island openers Aaron Paxton and Paul Hartle were both removed for ducks, the Mounties got a sniff of an outright win. Peter Connell went for one and the Islanders were in all sorts of strife at 3/1. Justin Bridgeman (28) and Phillips (17) offered some resistance in the middle order, as well as bat through some overs. Long Island just needed to hang on, which it just managed to do. Scott Creffield (whose new nickname at the club is Sam) and Tom Baron each claimed two wickets for the Mounties. Mt Eliza is a real threat to top sides Sorrento and Mornington and with remaining games against Moorooduc and Mt Martha, should maintain its position in the top four. Long Island will face off against Langwarrin in the second last round

this weekend in what is a season-defining game for both clubs. The loser of this match can kiss goodbye to the 2013-14 finals. The Kangas were chasing a tricky Crib Point total on Saturday of 195 for victory. The Magpies bowlers were superb and rolled the home side for 148. It was a wonderful victory for the Pies, who at one stage on day one of their match were 5/29. On Saturday, the Pies’ key bowlers in Glenn Barclay (three wickets), Luke Herrington (four wickets) and Brad Davidson (three wickets) all stepped up to the plate. Mal Coutts was the best of the Kangas’ batsmen with 28, while Simon McEvoy opened with 26. The Magpies are too far outside of the top four to make a late dash for finals, but their best cricket is good enough to knock off any team. They play Sorrento this weekend. Baxter bounced back from its shock

loss to Langwarrin to claim one of the competition’s biggest scalps in Sorrento. Defending 301, Baxter’s bowling attack got to work and rolled the home side for 244. Nick Jewell top scored for the Sorras with 78, while Mick Dunball helped himself to 31. Adrian Mack was the pick of the Baxter bowlers with 3/34, while Dale Irving, Marc Uccello and Ben Smith all picked up two wickets each. Mornington rolled Heatherhill with ease. After scoring 8/293 on the first day of the match, the Doggies made light work of the Hills in response. The Hills had no answers for the Dogs’ Michael Heib, who claimed six wickets. Nathan Martin was the standout performer with the bat for Heatherhill, scoring 62. Mt Martha is every chance now to avoid relegation after picking up their

first win of the year against Peninsula Old Boys. The Reds successfully defended their 248, bowling out the Old Boys in a thriller for 245. Rye almost pulled off a reverse outright win against Moorooduc. Moorooduc scored 188 in response to Rye’s first innings total of 100 to claim first innings points. However, Rye made a whopping 8/217 in just 36 overs in its second innings before sending the Ducs back in to bat to face the last 23 overs of the day. Aaron Fiddes top scored for the Demons with 75 while Andrew Hitchener scored 38. Rye went within four wickets of getting the reverse outright, snaring 6/77 in the Ducs’ second innings. Rye play Mt Martha in the final twoday game of the season. The loser of the match will drop down a division and play in District grade next season.

Tigers set for finals DISTRICT By IT Gully AN OUTRIGHT victory for Seaford Tigers was predicted last week against Ballam Park and that’s exactly what unfolded on Saturday. The win sees the Tigers cement their position in the top four, a wonderful performance in their first season up from Sub District. On Saturday against the hapless Knights, the Tigers resumed their second innings at 5/191. They eventually declared at 6/292 with Ash Mills belting the Knights attack to all parts of the ground. He finished unbeaten on 111, while Dave James smacked 74. The Tigers’ bowlers then went to work and rolled the Knights in their second innings for 153. David Roach top scored for the home team with 45 while Michael Casey scored 34 batting at three. At one stage the Knights were going alright at 1/89. Mark Carroll was the one who turned the game for the Tigers, coming on late, bowling 13 overs and snaring 6/40. The Tigers then took just one over to score the 10plus runs it needed for outright victory. Main Ridge staged a wonderful comeback to win its season-defining game against Boneo. Chasing 302 for victory, Main Ridge resumed at 1/2 and were up against it. However, its top order impressed with Michael Holmes scoring 73, night watchman Nick Gage hit 68, Brad Rossborough scored 79 and Gareth Wyatt 54 to help the Ridge to 5/307 and victory. The Ridge are just a game outside the top four with two matches remaining. Pines is another team that locked itself into the finals, easily accounting for Hastings. Scoring 234 after at one stage being 8/114, Pines was always in control of the match against the Blues. Early wickets (5/77) put the Blues on the back foot,

although Luke Hewitt (34), Jake Hewitt (25) and Brad Watson (39) all offered some resistance. Nick Wilcox and Ricky Ramsdale each claimed three wickets for the Piners while Pat Jackson snared 2/13. Flinders got the job done against Carrum, losing only six wickets on the way to victory. Flinders deserved to win the match after having the Lions against the wall on day one of the match. Lachy Dobson (76) and Jackson Fry (29) put on more than a 100 for the final wicket for Carrum last week. However, the Sharks made sure they didn’t have to rely on the tail to get the job done. Luke Adams top scored with 71 while Tim Clarke scored 58. Baden Powell was always up against it to chase down the 314 needed for victory against Delacombe Park. The Braves did have a reasonable crack at it though, finishing on 234. Anjula Perera played his best innings for the season, scoring 68, while Josh Waldron fell just one short of his half century (49). Chris Brittain finished off a sensational game personally for the Parkers, taking 4/46 to go with his 104 with the bat. Shane Deal was his usual impressive self with 3/20. Somerville smashed Seaford, winning by almost 180 runs. After scoring 6/311 on day one of the match, the Eagles needed to take 17 wickets in extremely hot conditions to claim the outright win. It was always going to be tough for the home side. Resuming at 3/20, Seaford managed to get to 127 in their first innings. The Eagles’ Justin Allsop had figures of 2/0 overnight and finished with 3/16, while Keith Burdett snared 2/5 to go with his unbeaten 74. In the second innings, Seaford finished on 3/91, teenager Damien Lawrence belting an unbeaten 60 for Seaford, their only saviour all season.

Buds open gate on finals SUB-DISTRICT

Tiger chases tail: Seaford put the pressure on Ballam Park’s batting order to snare an outright win in their District match. Picture: Andrew Hurst

By IT Gully ROSEBUD is sitting in third place on the MPCA Sub District ladder after toppling top of the table Red Hill on Saturday. The Buds’ win has set up an exciting finals campaign after it appeared as though it was going to be a one-horse race. Tootgarook belting Skye has also set a cat amongst the pigeons, while Pearcedale rolling Balnarring for just 85 has opened the door for eight clubs to play finals this season. Red Hill is the only team safe in the four. The Hillmen are on 92 points with two matches remaining. Balnarring, Rosebud and Frankston YCW all make up the four and are on 60 points. Skye is just outside on 60 points, while Tootgarook is banging on the door, four points behind in sixth place on 56 points. Pearcedale and Tyabb are a game outside the top four on 48 points. Carrum Downs (36 points) and Dromana (24) have no hope of making the finals. There are just two games remaining this season, a two-day match starting this weekend before we finish with a one-day game to end the home and away season. On Saturday, Rosebud needed just six wickets to get the win against Red Hill. The Hillmen were reeling at 4/68, chasing Rosebud’s first innings total of 166. Brian Doughty ended with 5/22 and Jason Nagel 3/51 as

the Buds rolled the Hillmen for 105. Rosebud then batted for the remainder of the afternoon and finished on 4/94. Skye made 300 chasing Tootgarook’s monster total of 407. After Rob French blasted 130 for the Tooters and Matt Whelan belted 116 on day one of the match, someone from Skye needed a big score. Pat Beckham scored 98 and Paul Fillipone 77 for Skye, however, they both needed to turn them into big hundreds if they were to win. French topped off a fantastic game personally with four wickets for the Tooters. Frankston YCW went for the outright against Dromana but fell just short. The Hoppers made 131 in their first innings before YCW responded with 3/237 declared. The Hoppers then held the Stonecats off, finishing at 6/156. Tyabb did the job on Carrum Downs but also failed to get the outright win. After scoring 254 on day one, the Yabbies needed to take 20 wickets in one day to get the outright win. They were able to take 14 wickets. The Yabbies rolled the Cougars for 121 in the first innings and had them 4/126 in the second. Sam Holland-Burch claimed 5/31 for the Yabbies in his second best bowling performance for the year (his best was 5/29). Shayne Gillings finished with 4/18 and Chris Dew 3/43 in Pearcedale’s (115) win against Balnarring (86).
