Garden opens gate for African choir mission CATE and John Jaede will open their Mt Martha garden to the public to raise money for poor African children. The open garden weekend is on 19-20 October at 38 Ellerina Rd. Entry costs $5 with all proceeds going to Kwaya Uganda Incorporated. The Jaedes’ expansive garden features hundreds of Australian native plants, complete with rocky creek and pond, and is a favourite destination for birds and butterflies. Richard Anderson of Merricks Nursery will share his extensive knowledge of Australian plants at the event. Mrs Jaede, below, will visit Uganda next year along with 40 other volunteers on a Kwaya Cross Cultural Connections choir tour as guests of the African Children’s Choir. Kwaya helps change lives in Africa through financial donations, gifts of basic essentials, educational material, and assistance with construction and renovation projects, and is a partner of the choir’s Music For Life program.

Tip at mercy of state plans By Mike Hast THE state government has released two draft plans for waste recovery infrastructure that will markedly reduce the likelihood of a rubbish tip in the old Pioneer quarry at Dromana. The plans were released on Friday by Acting Environment Minister Peter Walsh. Mr Walsh said the Statewide Waste

and Resource Recovery Infrastructure Plan provided “a 30-year roadmap for government and industry investment opportunities to improve Victoria’s waste management and resource recovery infrastructure network”. The complementary draft Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Strategic Plan for Melbourne identifies

specific waste and resource recovery infrastructure needed for metropolitan Melbourne, including the Mornington Peninsula, over the next 10 years. He said the plans were “two major milestones in implementing the government’s Getting Full Value: Victoria’s Waste and Resource Recovery Policy, which was released in April”.

Getting Full Value outlined the government’s intentions to develop a statewide waste and resource recovery infrastructure plan to improve longterm strategic waste planning, he said. The two plans will make it harder for tip proponent Peninsula Waste Management and its owner, the R E Ross Trust, to challenge the EPA’s refusal of

the quarry tip plan earlier this month. The quarry site on the Arthurs Seat escarpment does not have space for a waste recovery depot. PWM has until Friday to decide whether to challenge the EPA’s decision at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Continued Page 8

Nim’s Island author at anti-tip film benefit By Mike Hast LIFE imitates art on Sunday at Rosebud Cinemas when the film Return to Nim’s Island will be screened as a fundraiser for anti-tip protester Peninsula Preservation Group. The film stars Bindi Irwin, the 14-yearold daughter of the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, and Matthew Lillard, Toby Wallace and John Waters. Nim’s tropical paradise is simultaneously threatened by poachers and developers in an echo of what is happening at Dromana with Peninsula Waste Management seeking to turn an old quarry on the Arthurs Seat escarpment into a municipal rubbish dump. The sequel to Nim’s Island (2008) was released nationally in April. It is based on the award-winning children’s book Nim at Sea by Mornington Peninsula author Wendy Orr, who will speak before the screening at 12.30pm and also sign books. Ms Orr, who lives in Red Hill, supports the group’s anti-tip campaign. “My husband and I moved to Red Hill 13 years ago because we fell in love with its natural beauty,” she said. “Having long held a commitment to the environment, we’ve worked hard to restore our five acres of bush, and have been rewarded by the continuing presence of indigenous birds, butterflies and animals. “However, it’s been very depressing to see the areas of remnant bush and natural habitat steadily decreasing, and we want to do all we can to reverse that trend. “We were horrified to think of a tip being introduced into this ecosystem.” Ms Orr said the parallels between Return to Nim’s Island and the anti-tip campaign were quite striking. “Nim’s Island is a unique and pristine environment with different ecosystems. “In the film, a large corporation intends

to take over the island for profit, and the only way Nim and her friends can thwart it is to document three endangered species and prove to the powers-that-be that the island is worth preserving.” Ms Orr said the quarry site owned by the Ross Trust was not exactly pristine “but it supports many different species of flora and fauna, some of which are endangered, and it has been up to the community to prove this ecosystem is worth saving”. She said the Nim’s books had inspired children to join environmental campaigns in other parts of the world. “Although she hasn’t initiated this one [at Dromana], I know Nim would be right behind it!” Mary Karamitsios of PPG said the film fundraiser had been organised before the Environment Protection Authority refused a work approval for the tip on Friday 13 September. Peninsula Waste Management has until Friday to decide if it will appeal the EPA decision in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Ms Karamitsios said “it was agreed by all involved that the event should proceed until there was certainty that the proponents would not appeal the decision at VCAT, and that the site is protected from future inappropriate development”. “PPG agrees with the overwhelming community sentiment to have the site reconnected to the adjacent Arthurs Seat State Park,” she said.  Return to Nim’s Island is on Sunday 6 October at Rosebud Cinemas, 30 Rosebud Pde. Wendy Orr’s talk at 12.30pm, movie at 1pm. Tickets: Family $40, adult $15, child or concession $10 (includes small popcorn and drink). Bookings: Rosebud Cinemas, 5986 4130. Seats are limited.

Traders pay up for promotion By Keith Platt SORRENTO traders will be paying $575,000 over the next five years to boost business in the town. A special charge scheme planned by Mornington Peninsula Shire and Sorrento Portsea Chamber of Commerce will see businesses with ground floor frontage to Ocean Beach Rd pay $850 with others paying $474. The charge will rise by three per cent a year, with the shire picking up the first year’s $15,000 administrative

costs and $5000 for each of the following four years. Shire business development officer Sara Schwarz said 77 of the businesses in Sorrento, or 61 per cent, had written in support of the scheme while 27 traders had “submitted anonymously” pro forma letters opposing the charge. However, Ms Schwarz said 12 of those opposed to the scheme “had previously indicated their support of the renewal in the pro forma letters submitted by the chamber”.

In a lengthy report to council’s Monday 23 September meeting, Ms Schwarz listed “key achievements and successes” from the current fiveyear scheme (ending in December) as subsidising the Sorrento Village Life magazine (50,000 copies printed twice yearly); a map and business directory (30,000 printed yearly); Taste of Sorrento event; October Fiesta/Arts Heritage Weekend; Christmas concert; promotion Let’s Go Cruising car rally, Sorrento by Twilight, Sorrento on Sale,

An extra $160,000 had been “leveraged” in “financial and in-kind contributions” since 2009, she stated. As well as continuing “established and successful activities”, the chamber would use the “new” special charge money to continue employing a parttime business development and centre manager; communicate with all businesses; continue supporting Sorrento

Village Life magazine and township map. Property owners or tenants can avoid paying the special charge if they are a charitable or not-for-profit organisation or the property is used solely as a residence. “It is considered that all the properties within the proposed scheme boundary will receive a special benefit through increased economic activity,” Ms Schwarz stated.

Remembered and restored: James Fenton, acting Prime Minister during 1930 and a resident of Merricks and later Frankston, is buried at Mornington Cemetery. His neglected grave, left, has been restored after a campaign by Mornington and District Historical Society and federal MP Bruce Billson.

Acting PM James Fenton rests in peace again By Mike Hast THE restored grave of acting Prime Minister James Fenton will be unveiled at Mornington Cemetery at 3.30pm on Sunday 27 October. James Edward Fenton was an MP 1910-34 including acting PM for five months in 1930 during the Great Depression, one of the most tumultuous times in Australian politics. The unveiling will be the culmination of a campaign by Dunkley MP Bruce Billson and Mornington and District Historical Society to restore the grave. About $10,000 for the work came from the federal Labor government’s Your Community Heritage Program. Historical society member Val Wilson, who conducts tours of the cemetery and has been researching its old graves for many years, saw the grave

during a tour and looked up Mr Fenton. She was surprised a former acting PM’s grave had fallen into disrepair. Mr Fenton has no living relatives. James Fenton, who was awarded the Companion of the most distinguished Order of St Michael and St George (CMG), died in 1950 aged 86 at his home in Frankston, and given a state funeral in Frankston and buried at Mornington cemetery in Craigie Rd. A printer and journalist before entering Parliament, he represented Maribyrnong in the Federal Parliament from 1910 to 1934 and was acting PM in the Scullin Labor government in 1930 during James Scullin’s absence at the Imperial Conference (the forerunner of Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings – CHOGMs). He left the Labor Party in 1931 as a follower of Joseph Lyons.

In the Scullin government he served as Minister for Trade and Customs when Joseph Lyons was treasurer. With Mr Lyons, he bitterly opposed an economic plan to counter the depression, and resigned from the party in the great split of February 1931. The defection of the two men and others caused the defeat of the Scullin government. Mr Fenton and Mr Lyons formed the United Australian Party, a forerunner of the modern Liberal Party. The party won the next election in a landslide. Mr Fenton became Postmaster-General and introduced legislation to start the Australian Broadcasting Commission. He lost his seat in 1934. Mr Fenton was a long-time resident of Merricks North and lived on the cor-

ner of Tubbarubba Rd and One Chain Rd with his wife, two daughters and a son. He successfully lobbied for a post office at Merricks North and the building of a hall, which was used as a school until Red Hill Consolidated School was built in 1951. The building was later named Fenton Hall and is on the corner of BitternDromana and Merricks roads. His wife Elizabeth died at Dromana in 1926 and in the early 1940s Mr Fenton and his daughter Phyllis moved to The Crest in Frankston. His son Edward Fenton farmed at Balnarring for a time. Mr Fenton is notable for having been appointed a Cabinet minister by two governments of different political persuasions. In early 2011, Bruce Billson started

lobbying the federal government for the grave to be restored. He said at the time Mr Fenton was “an important contributor to this country’s politics and government who was afforded a state funeral, and his grave should be kept in adequate order”. An interpretative plaque is part of the restoration. Historical society president Diane White said the group had worked with Mornington Peninsula Shire’s heritage adviser on the restoration. The unveiling will be part of History Week with the historical society conducting its annual Mornington Cemetery tour, led by Val Wilson, at 1.30pm. Mrs Wilson won a heritage award from the National Trust in May for her research into and website (www. morningtoncemetery.com) of pioneer graves in the cemetery.

Grant to help retailers reap richer rewards The grant was provided to the shire on an 80:20 co-funding basis and will be used to mentor peninsula retailers in three topics: effective business management, marketing strategies for small business, and front of house. “The project will give peninsula retailers the opportunity to develop their business skills and learn to promote and manage their retail premises more effectively,” Mr Dixon said. “A focus on customer service will form an essential part of the project.”

Cheeky question fails to pass Buck Mornington Peninsula Shire Council community meeting at Somerville’s Mechanics Hall, Monday 23 September. The usual fine buffet meal. By David Harrison IT was a depleted council chamber, with shire CEO Michael Kennedy and councillors Frank Martin and David Gibb absent. Infrastructure director Alex Atkins stood in for Dr Kennedy as acting CEO. Does Mr Atkins, one wondered, receive extra money when he acts as the shire supremo? Keeping the shire ship off the rocks is a weighty responsibility, even if for only a week or two during the school holidays, and surely worth a few extra dollars. Question time can be lively, and this night had its moment. Mornington resident Roger Lambert, veteran gadfly

and frequent contender in council elections, caused a spike in excitement with a question that governance manager Noel Buck, who is retiring from the shire, declined to answer. Mr Buck, who once banned this writer briefly from asking questions at council meetings on the grounds that “you are a journalist” – fancy a journalist asking questions! – stated he would not answer Mr Lambert’s question because it did not conform to question time guidelines. In fact, the question was adjudicated to be inappropriate.

An intrigued Council Watch, always alert for a scoop, immediately questioned Mr Lambert on the wording of the question, which, of course, will not appear in the meeting minutes. So here it is – a world exclusive. “It ran along the lines of: Prior to council’s adjournment for Christmas, how did it intend to commemorate the year of passing of the Buck?” Mr Lambert whispered with a grin. Clearly more than one person is mourning the departure of Mr Buck and wishing to put that sentiment on the council record. And clearly council veteran Buck will get an appropriate shire send-off. But Council Watch, which also notes with sadness Mr Buck’s imminent departure from the shire, wondered two things.

Firstly, did Mr Buck have a conflict of interest in adjudicating that the question should not be asked on the grounds that it did not meet question time guidelines? Surely, on the basis that he was the question’s subject, he should have passed the decision to mayor Lynn Bowden or acting CEO Atkins? Conflict of interest is not a matter to be taken lightly, as Mr Buck well knows. Secondly, should not the earnest and dedicated Mr Buck have demonstrated his keenly tuned sense of humour by breaking into a broad grin and asking the question anyway, in the spirit of camaraderie that exists between senior shire staff and their question time interrogators? It was an opportunity for levity missed.

The slowly tightening rules that Mr Buck has imposed on questioners in recent times – only two questions per person, each of no more than 50 words, each signed to confirm it is the original work of the author – are now deftly handled by council meeting regulars. And most questions are just as adroitly not answered by shire staff, unless the shire deems the information sought by the question fits its notion of openness and transparency, better known as shire spin. But the passing of the Buck will likely not be final. Council Watch will be unsurprised to see Mr Buck reappearing occasionally at the shire offices. The shire is developing a tradition of calling back former staff to consult in their area of expertise.

Fun turns to fear with strangers at the gate By Stephen Taylor “GOD they’re angry,’’ I thought. “They’re out to get us.’’ It was a shock to realise I had put myself in a position where I feared a beating or worse, just for helping out at a friend’s 16th birthday party. But now, with a taunting gang apparently determined to kick down the front gate and assault us, there wasn’t much I could do about it. The host’s father, another dad and I were shocked by the abuse, threats and physical intimidation as we fought grimly to hold the front gate shut. Wave after wave of assaults proved wearying and frightening: they’d rush the gate, force it open with kicks and brute strength and threaten to storm back in, while our undermanned force fought valiantly to hold the line without doing anything to further inflame a tense situation. It felt as though we were walking on eggshells, hoping they wouldn’t break. One swore at me, adding “You’re gonna die”. “I’ve been in jail and I’m gonna stab you,’’ joined in another. “Come out here and fight; you’re gutless.’’ These big, tough 16 to 18-year-olds were high on something, angry as hell and bent on violence. We three dads were their targets. They didn’t just want to get back into the party, they wanted to bash us. The smallest and most dangerous was a foul-mouthed girl. She made several attempts to scale the gate, which prompted the others to try rushing through. That poor gate proved to be our

saviour. It was shaken and rocked, then kicked open, which broke the latch, while three dads cowering behind it were praying for the police to arrive. Gatecrashing is nothing new – I’ve probably been a gatecrasher myself – but it’s always a shock to find people you don’t know and would never invite to your party acting like they own the place, bent on causing damage and starting fights. The young host and friends had been having a great time in the suitably dim and crowded backyard. Professional dance music and strobe lighting set the scene and young bodies swayed to the beat. The atmosphere was charged. This was to be a great night. The girls in their colourful minis

riday 25

and high heels seemed oblivious to the chilly night air, while the boys gathered, cool and coiffed, avoiding direct visual contact but eyeing them off just the same. The flash of phone cameras showed everyone wanted to remember the night. But the insidious force began to make its presence felt. Jumping unseen over a side fence, the troublemakers nudged guests aside, making threats, taking the middle ground. The fun started to evaporate. “Dad, there’s gatecrashers here. Help me get them out,’’ the young host called out. He’d been punched. We ran to backyard “party central” and, as he pointed them out, began

escorting the culprits to the gate one by one in a firm, no-nonsense manner. This was early days; we were in control – or so we thought. “Get your hands off me,’’ I was told more than once as I marched my quota up the driveway to the street where the ever-growing gang gathered. “Have we called the police?’’ I whispered to the host, who had registered the party the week before. “Yes, they’re on the way.” Being Saturday night they had plenty on their hands and it would be at least a 30-minute wait. Time enough for the effects of alcohol and drugs to kick in and the battle to begin at the front gate. The three dads felt very much alone.

IF having a party at home:  Register the party with your local police at least one week in advance.  Insist that the party is invitation only to reduce the risk of gatecrashers. Ask your guests not to spread the word to others via texts or the internet.  Indicate clearly on the invitation whether the party is alcohol-free or if alcohol is provided or is BYO. State firmly that illegal drugs are not welcome.  Ask parents of party guests to call beforehand for more information.  Ask parents of guests to provide transport to and from the party.  Secure all valuables.  Have responsible adults on hand to monitor the party.  Make sure the host (and the host’s parents and other responsible adults) remain sober so any problems can be dealt with quickly and safely.  Consider hiring a security guard or guards.  Serve plenty of food.  Be vigilant if you have a swimming pool – intoxicated guests could fall in.  Turn the music down after midnight.  Have a plan of action if a guest becomes drunk or ill.  Ask gatecrashers to leave immediately or threaten that the police will be called. Follow through with your threats.  Call the police if you think a situation is beyond your control.

Tipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand final: Friday is D-Day for Peninsula Waste Management and its owner R E Ross Trust to decide whether to appeal the EPAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to reject the proposed rubbish tip, or landfill, in the old Pioneer quarry at Dromana on the Arthurs Seat escarpment. Picture: Yanni

State plans hold key to quarryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fate Continued from Page 1

The News understands Ross Trust will consider whether to appeal the EPA decision at its annual meeting this week. Mr Walsh said the plans would help prepare for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing population and maximise the economic return from our waste materials through more sophisticated planningâ&#x20AC;?. The government is proposing to set up waste collection hubs to sort waste and extract items of value such as metals, concrete, bricks, asphalt and timber. Mr Walsh said the waste and re-

source recovery industry was a diverse sector worth $2.2 billion annually to the Victorian economy and employing more than 8000 people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As we implement key actions from Getting Full Value, it is vital that the right plan is in place, including land use and transport plans,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will help guide investment decisions for waste and resource recovery, and support the future of this important industry for our state.â&#x20AC;? He said the government would seek input from industry, community, local government and waste management

groups before releasing the final plans in 2014. The draft statewide plan is open for comment until 6 December and the draft metropolitan plan until 25 November. For details, visit: www. sustainability.vic.gov.au ď Ž The government in August said it would reduce the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waste management groups from 12 to six, and force Mornington Peninsula Region Waste Management Group to join the Metropolitan Waste Management Group, which also has implications for the proposed Dromana quarry tip.

Golfers line up for the 110th By Tony Duboudin FLINDERS Golf Club is about to celebrate its 110th birthday, continuing its reign as the state’s oldest with members still playing on its original course. To celebrate, the club is holding an anniversary dinner on Saturday 26 October with a past president of Royal Melbourne Golf Club, David Temple, as master of ceremonies. “This is a significant milestone for the club and one of which we are justifiably proud,” club president Graham Scoffern said. “It gives the club a great sense of continuity. We now look forward to another 110 years.” The Flinders course had its beginnings in the 1870s when English and Scottish migrants working at the nearby cable station – where the telegraph cable from Tasmania came ashore – carved out four rough golf holes on the clifftop. Their work sparked the interest of David Myles Maxwell, who had come to Flinders to manage an onion farm and also happened to be a champion golfer hailing from the holy grail of golf, St Andrews in Scotland. In 1892 Maxwell was the inaugural club champion at Melbourne Golf Club, which soon became Royal Melbourne Golf Club. Being a golf fanatic, he organised volunteers to add another two holes to the nascent course. He also organised friends from Royal Melbourne, who were among the golfing elite of their day, to come and stay with him in Flinders

at St Andrews guest house, built in 1905. Among them were Dr (later Sir) James Barrett, Justice Higgins and Dr (later Sir) John McFarland. In 1902, Maxwell put the wheels in motion to establish Flinders Golf Links on two parcels of land owned by the Union Bank and the Crown after a visit to Flinders by Dr Alister Mackenzie, who later became a world renowned golf course architect. Mackenzie made some suggestions about improving the course and within a year it had 18 holes. Maxwell’s friend Dr Barrett was made chairman of the committee with Maxwell as honorary secretary. The new club was affiliated with the Victorian Golf Association in 1903 and on opening day, the Royal Melbourne Golf Club presented a hole cutter to the newly affiliated club.

Annual membership was two shillings and sixpence and the club revenue for the first year was three pounds ($6). Melbourne members spread the word and the renowned Easter tournament began in 1905 and has continued to be held almost uninterrupted to this day. Flinders was rough and windy to play, with holes along the cliffs and even down to the beach and back. The club generated such interest that the Mornington Standard reported on 16 December 1905: “In no part of the state has any golf club made such rapid strides as that at Flinders. Though started only some three years ago by Mr D M Maxwell (who is still honorary secretary of the club) with a membership of 22, the financial year, which closed on September 30, shows a roll of 155 members.”

Over the next 15 years the club acquired freehold land abutting the course. To accomplish this, Maxwell and Barrett formed the Flinders Golf Links Land Company but, because the club was playing golf on a course primarily on Crown land, the state government was asked to form a public park. This “temporary reserve” was created in 1914 and, with some certainty in place, Maxwell started to improve the course. Land acquisitions continued until 1918 by which time the club (the Flinders Golf Links Lands Co had liquidated its assets and transferred them to the Flinders Golf Club) owned all the land on the Western Port frontage. In 1920 the club decided to offer to the Crown all 18 acres (7.23 hectares) of its valuable land along the Western Port side of the links

with two main conditions: Bass Park (now comprising 103 acres) would be permanently reserved and six trustees would be appointed, three to be nominated by the Flinders Golf Club and three by the district. In the early years the course was very much a traditional links-style one with few trees along the clifftops and bare around the fairways. Two holes in particular, the third and fourth, Niagara and Spion Kop, helped put the course on the map. In November 1926, Dr Alister Mackenzie – by now one of the world’s top course designers – returned to Flinders while in Australia to design Royal Melbourne Golf Club’s new Sandringham links. Mackenzie was impressed with the course – Peninsula Post (12/8/1928) quoting him as saying it was “equalled by only one other natural course, which is in California”. Apart from recommending the closure of Spion Kop and Niagara – Mackenzie said the beach sequence slowed play too much – he suggested altering the Coffin, adding two new holes in the “top paddock”, and building up greens and improvements to the fairways and bunkers. While the call to close the two holes was not accepted by the committee, there was a commitment to implement the plan, subject to financial constraints. David Maxwell and his greenkeepers spent years trying to put the recommendations in place. Improvements and alterations to the course have continued from Mackenzie’s day up to the present.

New award for beach ‘warrior’ ONE of the region’s leading environmentalists, Kath Hassell, has won another award – for outstanding individual achievement at the Victorian Coastal Awards for Excellence. Mrs Hassell was presented with the award at Melbourne Museum by Environment Minister Ryan Smith. She has been a member of Frankston Beach Association since 1983, including 12 years as secretary, and has been described as “the backbone of the association”. Victorian Coastal Council said Mrs Hassell had “made a significant contribution to the environmental value of the Frankston Beach dunes system using her skills to propagate and involve people in the planting of more than 90,000 indigenous plants since 1995. She has involved many school students and community volunteers in these activities and has applied for and secured state and federal government grants of more than $140,000 to continue this important work.” In 2011, Mrs Hassell received the Dame Phyllis Frost Award at the Keep Australia Beautiful Awards for her dedication to protecting and enhancing the city’s natural environment.

College’s Anzac doco set for broadcast A DOCUMENTARY about Mornington Secondary College’s preparations for Anzac Day 2013 will be shown on Channel 31 on Saturday 2 November. The doco was made by one of the school’s English teachers, Terry Cantwell, who owns Whitewater Films, which makes docos on a range of topics including for Victorian shipwreck hunters Southern Ocean Explorations. Paul Papettas, the college’s Police Youth Drum Corps coordinator, said Our Sons As Well charts the college’s efforts to make the Anzac legacy meaningful to youth of the Mornington Peninsula. “Although it focuses on the drum corps, the doco follows the entire school’s preparation for, commitment to and commemoration of Anzac Day,” he said. “For the past six years, the college has promoted the values and philosophies of the original Anzacs through continuous community involvement. “College students not only remember their forefather’s sacrifices, but also actively attempt to live their lives based on the Anzacs’ shared ideals of mateship, honesty, resilience and persistence.” Mr Papettas acknowledged the help of Leading Senior Constable Mick Mears of Mornington police in the running of the drum corps. Mr Cantwell said the film included interviews with police, youth drum corps members, students, teachers and war veterans including 96-year-old Second World War veteran Jack Green.

Spirit of Anzac: Mornington Secondary College teacher and drum corps coordinator Paul Papettas, left, Channel 7 news presenter Peter Mitchell and Year 12 drum corps student leader John Halse show the awards and the documentary Our Sons As Well.

“College students have commemorated the Anzac spirit through the drum corps, regular Anzac commemorations, a trip to Gallipoli and increased student interaction with the veteran community,” he said. “The documentary captures the

genuine respect and gratitude that students feel for our veterans’ sacrifices.” The college won an Order of Australia Association award for the drum corps’ work in the community and the doco as well as a commendation from the

federal government’s Department of Veterans’ Affairs. The Order of Australia award was presented at a dinner at Brooklands in Mornington where Channel 7 news presenter Peter Mitchell was guest speaker.

Timely seawall repairs By Keith Platt TIME and tide plus repeated battering by storms have taken their toll on the seawall at Craigie Beach in Mt Martha. The wall is separated by a rocky track from a small cluster of beach boxes huddled against the badly eroded cliff. Without the wall, the boxes would have been swept away years ago, along with much of the cliff and possibly the Esplanade above. The 460-metre long bluestone wall is about to be repaired and reinforced. Mortar will be replaced between loose bluestones in the 3.4-metre high wall, timber stairs removed and a 55-metre rock wall built in front of the existing wall to lessen the impact of waves. “The works are timely and coincide with new research that looked at alternatives for seawall materials including rock, reinforced concrete pipe and rectangular concrete blocks,” Department of Environment and Primary Industries risk and infrastructure manager Sally Patterson said. “Three designs were tested earlier this year and it was concluded that rock design was the most viable in terms of stability and longevity.” The repairs, including filling sink holes between beach sheds and the wall, will begin later this month. The wall was built between 1936 and 1946 but last month storm caused 55 metres of damage from the northern end of the seawall. “The Craigie Seawall protects high cliffs that support a coastal road and the area behind the wall provides a walking path and access to the beach boxes,” Ms Patterson said. “The seawalls around Port Phillip are an important asset that protect the foreshores and coastal assets against erosion.” Ms Patterson said seawalls lasted 25-30 years although some had stood the test of time for nearly 75 years. “When the Great Depression hit Melbourne, men looked for any work they could get. It was

then that the government set up a scheme where men worked for food vouchers. Jobs included the construction of some seawalls around Port Phillip,” she said. New seawalls have recently been built at Williamstown and Merricks Beach.

Street life: Three-piece band The Basics – bassist Kris Schroeder, drummer Wally de Backer (aka the Grammy Award-winner Gotye) and guitarist Tim Heath– is the headline act at the 18th Main Street Mornington Festival later this month.

Wally and mates for street festival By Debra Mar THE program for the popular Main Street Mornington Festival was launched on Friday night. The 18th annual festival starts at 11am on Sunday 20 October. About 40,000 people packed the town’s Main St last year. Highlights will include stage performances headlined by The Basics (bassist Kris Schroeder, guitarist Tim Heath and drummer Wally de Backer, aka the Grammy Award-winner Gotye), roving musicians, artists, a children’s arcade, activities and more than 70 food and wine stalls. Organisers said the festival showcased the lifestyle that

WORK on the controversial, $84 million South East Water headquarters beside Kananook Creek is underway with earthworks closing off Kananook Boulevard and creek access. South East Water managing director Kevin Hutchings said Probuild was constructing a “five-star Green Star energy rating” building that would meet strict targets for energy and water use. “There will be something for everyone at our new water precinct. Residents will enjoy the new cafes and shops wrapping around the verandah and business will benefit

from our 700 staff making the most of local goods and services,” he said. “Moving to a new office on land we own will reduce operating costs by more than $5 million a year from 2015-16.” Frankston Council sold South East Water the land between Beach and Playne streets for $4 million last year despite widespread opposition. The council agreed to ignore its own building height regulations to speed up approval for the building on land that was a car park. The 10-storey building will be completed in 2015.

The election is not until November next year and most people are electioned out by now. I know I certainly am.” Mr Shaw criticised Labor politicians who resigned after the 2010 election, costing taxpayers $1 million in by-election costs: “They’re the people who didn’t keep to a commitment.” For a man variously described as embattled, a rebel and a rogue MP on whom the survival of the Napthine Coalition government depends – and who is due in court this month over alleged misuse of his taxpayer-funded vehicle – Mr Shaw does not give the impression of being under pressure. On 17 September he issued a statement confirming he had been charged by police and also that he had the previous week appeared before the Parliamentary Privileges Committee. Mr Shaw has been summonsed to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 8 October to face 24 charges relating to the alleged misuse of his taxpayer-funded vehicle. On Wednesday, he told The News he had “paid back” $1250 but then corrected himself: “There was nothing to pay; I made a payment of $1250 out of my own pocket and goodwill.” On Tuesday night last week he was at Frank-

Geoff Shaw

ston Arts Centre for a networking night organised by Greater Frankston Business Chamber. On Wednesday last week, he was preparing for a citizenship ceremony at Frankston RSL. Mr Shaw said he was recovering from a severe cold, an illness that had seen him seek leave

from Parliament and not attend on Thursday 20 September amid claims he was angry with Premier Denis Napthine for ruling him out of being the Liberals’ next candidate for Frankston. He said the reports were incorrect. He stayed in Parliament long enough to speak on matters concerning Frankston (a rezoning to allow expansion of Peninsula Private Hospital) before being driven home by an electorate officer. “I became ill on the Tuesday and spoke [in the Legislative Assembly] three times on the Wednesday, although I could hardly speak,” Mr Shaw told The News. News reports had claimed he didn’t look ill and that his car was left in the car park. However, he had caught the train to Melbourne. “The media is always going to be there whatever I do,” Mr Shaw said. “I don’t read the dailies, only the local newspapers. “I’m not media shy. The true story is I was ill and my car was not there. “I was in the Parliament for Frankston, it was [Labor leader] Daniel Andrews who left [after being kicked out of the Parliament for three days by Speaker Ken Smith].” Although he remains a member of the Liberal Party, Mr Shaw said he cannot remember the last time he attended a branch meeting (“I don’t keep those minute details”). Elected as a Liberal Party MP in 2010, he resigned from the Parliamentary Liberal Party on 6 March, the same day Premier Ted Baillieu stepped down from the top job. Mr Shaw, whose continued support is crucial to the state government’s ability to pass legislation, has been surrounded by turmoil ever since, a situation that is unlikely to change any time soon.

Libs, ALP search for election candidates By Mike Hast NEW electoral boundaries to be approved this month will likely be the trigger for candidates wanting to contest the crucial state electorate of Frankston. Both major parties are casting around for candidates to oppose former Liberal and now independent MP Geoff Shaw. Mr Shaw is facing 23 charges of obtaining financial advantage by deception and one charge of misconduct in public office over use of his government car and fuel card. A by-election between now and the state election on 29 November next year is unlikely given the rate at which the wheels of justice turn. The former federal Labor MP Craig Thomson has not had his day in court over charges of misusing his work credit card when he was a unionist. The police probe started in late 2011. The Liberal-Nationals Coalition holds 44 seats in the 88-member Victorian lower house, including speaker Ken Smith. Labor has 43 seats and Mr Shaw holds the balance of power. The new boundaries will be gazetted in October

and used at the November 2014 state election. Based on 2010 election results, the draft changes could see a net gain of three seats for the Liberal Party, a loss of one Nationals seat, and loss of two Labor seats. Boundary changes could see Labor-leaning Frankston North and Belvedere Park become part of Frankston electorate. Liberal Party identities touted as possible candidates include 2011 mayor, current Frankston councillor and serving police officer Brian Cunial; his colleague Darrel Taylor, a project manager with the Department of Defence who was elected to the council for the first time last year; and Frankston driving school owner Jerome Breen. Another former Frankston mayor, Christine Richards, who retired from the council prior to last year’s election, has been mentioned as a possible independent candidiate but Ms Richards told The News last week she would not be standing. Another being touted is 2004-05 Frankston mayor Rochelle McArthur who works for Carrum Liberal MP Donna Bauer. Ms McArthur stood in Frankston at the 2006 state election for the Liber-

als and was defeated by incumbent Alistair Harkness. She was pre-selected for the 2010 election but withdrew to care for her husband Lucas, who died in late 2011. Ms McArthur was replaced by Geoff Shaw who beat Dr Harkness in 2010. Another candidate could be Dandenong businessman Peter Angelico, who was a candidate for the federal seat of Isaacs at the 2010 election. He was forced out of the race after a County Court ruling against his steel business when a teenager had his hand crushed. Last year he had the backing of Liberal powerbroker Inga Peulich, the MP for South Eastern Metropolitan in the upper house. In the ALP camp, names being mentioned in despatches include Frankston councillor James Dooley, who stood against Liberal MP David Morris at the 2010 state election, and recent Dunkley federal election candidate Sonya Kilkenny, who was defeated on 7 September by incumbent Bruce Billson, now the Minister for Small Business in the Abbott Coalition government.

AROUND THE REGION

Hospital expansion set for approval By Mike Hast EXPANSION of Peninsula Private Hospital is on the cusp of being approved by Planning Minister Matthew Guy. MPs debated the matter in the Parliament late last month. The hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to greatly expand its facility on the corner of Cranbourne Rd and McClelland Dve, Langwarrin, was approved by Frankston Council in early August. This followed a recommendation by Planning Panels Victoria that the rezoning and planning permit for stage one of the expansion be approved. The proposal needs a change to the planning scheme to go ahead. The hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s land at 525, 555 and 559 McClelland Dve will change from Rural Conservation Zone and Road Zone Category to Special Use Zone. This would allow hospital owner Australian Unity Healthcare Property Trust to build stage one of a $25 million redevelopment that will more than double the private hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s size. The first stage includes an intensive care unit, overnight and day surgery beds, operating theatres, allied health centre, consulting rooms and multi-storey car parking. The hospital is operated by Ramsay Health Care. An earlier attempt to get Mr Guy to declare the hospital expansion land as a so-called green wedge anomaly was unsuccessful and the hospital sought a planning amendment to change the zoning. The expansion has been on the drawing board for about six years. Chris Smith of Australian Unity Investments

said the hospital needed to expand to meet â&#x20AC;&#x153;longterm growing demand in the Mornington Peninsula and surrounding areas for additional and specialist healthcare servicesâ&#x20AC;?. He said a new intensive care unit was particularly important. Consultants working for the hospital said an extra 570 private hospital beds were needed in the region, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but only 449 are currently availableâ&#x20AC;?. Peninsula Private was investigated by Frankston Council last year for clearing native vegetation at 555 McClelland Dve in the green wedge zone. Last October, the council said it would not fine the hospital over the clearing. In the Parliament last week, Frankston MP Geoff Shaw said it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretty important Frankston Environmental Friends Network, along with the council, the Department of Transport, Planning and Local Infrastructure, and Peninsula Private Hospital and its directors were able to talk through some environmental issuesâ&#x20AC;?. He said FEFN had â&#x20AC;&#x153;accepted this current planned expansion and development, as there were some compromises by decreasing the footprint of the building and maintaining some of the local indigenous bushlandâ&#x20AC;?. Mr Shaw said the hospital employed more than 850 people â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had their first open heart surgery around this time last year â&#x20AC;Ś and they have an intensive care unit which was opened up in that same month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are expanding services with the new plans for beds, theatres and radiology, and they are ready to go as soon as it is approved.â&#x20AC;? Mr Shaw said the hospital would be expanded by 19,000 square metres. More than $80 million had been invested in the hospital, he said.

In tune for four decades THEYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;VE been in fine voice for 40 years. The Frankston-based Australian Welsh Male Choir traces its beginnings to a group of Welsh expatriates getting together for a Christmas singalong at the Pines Soccer Club in Frankston North. The choir was first known as the Cambrian Choir with its first public performance on 20 October 1974 at the dedication service for the Victoria Police Academy chapel in Glen Waverley. The event coincided with the first live outside colour broadcast by ABC TV. The choir became the Victoria Welsh Male Choir in June 1980 and the Australian Welsh Male Choir in April 1985. Since then the combined voices have toured overseas, including Wales. Last week choir members celebrated 40 years of song by assembling in the chapel at Village Baxter. A trilling trio: Three members who have been part of the Australian Welsh Male Choir since its beginnings 40 years ago are, from left, Tony Dickinson, Bernie Rumble and Glynn Thomas.

Wild winds wreak havoc By Chris Brennan DOZENS of trees were knocked down, many onto homes, buildings and roads, as wild winds and torrential rain wreaked havoc across the Mornington Peninsula late last week. The Victorian State Emergency Service recorded one of its busiest days on record, with crews responding to more than 1300 calls for assistance across Melbourne as winds of more than 100km/h lashed the city on Thursday. SES officials said it was fortunate no serious injuries were suffered as gale force winds brought down an estimated 1000 trees across the city’s south and east, causing extensive damage to

homes and building and blocking numerous roads. Frankston SES controller Brian McManus said his crews had responded to more than 100 emergency calls, the most serious being a large tree that had crashed onto a sports medicine clinic at Mt Eliza. “The prolonged nature of the storm and the heavy rain meant the damage was very widespread but we were lucky that there was nothing too serious, just a lot of them,” he said. “The combination of high winds and heavy rain brought down some pretty big trees, a lot of them were across roads and onto cars and buildings.” A home was damaged by a fallen

tree in Kingfisher Ave, Rosebud West, while the roof was ripped from a real estate agent in central Rosebud. At Arthurs Seat, two cars travelling in opposite directions crashed into a fallen trees after in came down directly in their path. Neither driver was seriously injured in the incident. SES spokesman Stefan Delatovic warned Mornington Peninsula residents to take extreme care around trees over coming days, with many having been damaged and weakened by last week’s rain and wind. “There’ll be a lot of large trees and branches that are ready to come down in even light winds, so people need to be extremely careful,” he said.

Analog TV is being switched off in Melbourne and surrounding areas on 10 December 2013*

Kilmore Macedon

Marysville

Bacchus Marsh Melbourne Cockatoo Mornington

Warragul

Sorrento Wonthaggi

The areas shaded maroon above show where the analog TV signals will be switched off on 10 December 2013*. After this date, these areas will receive digital-only signals. If you haven’t already done so, you need to get ready for digital-only TV.

How do I tell if I have digital TV? If you can see ABC2, SBS TWO, GO!, 7TWO or Eleven, you are digital ready and don’t need to do anything.

If I can’t see those channels, what do I have to do? Remember, to keep watching free-to-air TV shows, you’ll need either: • one set-top box or a digital TV recorder for each analog TV you use; or • a new TV with a built-in digital tuner. Most importantly, you do not have to buy a new TV if you do not want to. Most antennas and cabling should work after the digital switchover. However, if you have any concerns about your reception, you may consider asking an endorsed Antenna Installer to check your antenna and cabling. If you have any other questions, or to find your nearest endorsed Antenna Installer, visit our website or call the Digital Ready Information Line.

Get ready for digital TV today. *Please note: switch off may occur earlier in some towns. Residents in these towns will be informed about the switchover dates. See the website for more information.

Southern Peninsula News 1 October 2013

FRANKSTON’S old tip in McClelland Dve may be excavated to find the body of 13-year-old Prue Bird who was murdered in 1992. Last Monday week, Supreme Court Justice Elizabeth Curtain said the tip should be checked for the teen’s body. Convicted killer Leslie Alfred Camilleri told police he dumped the body at the tip in 1992. Homicide detectives took Camilleri to the site on 6 August after he finally offered to help find her body. Homicide Detective Senior Constable Nathan Toey told the court police had been contacted by Camilleri in May offering to help find Ms Bird’s body and requesting maps of the Frankston tip area from 1992. Camilleri claimed he had snatched Ms Bird off the street outside her Glenroy home on 2 February 1992, and murdered her before driving to the Frankston tip. Police said they would analyse soil from the area to see if it was used as a rubbish tip. Justice Curtain had been planning to sentence Camilleri on Thursday but adjourned the case to 16 October to give police more time to investigate his claims. Camilleri, 43, is serving two life sentences for raping and murdering Bega schoolgirls Lauren Barry and Nichole Collins in 1997. Police alleged the motive for Ms Bird’s abduction and murder revolved around payback over police statements made against the men who bombed the Russell Street police building in 1986. Ms Bird’s grandmother and her partner gave statements to police about the fatal bombing.

Small is beautiful in business stakes PENINSULA residents and visitors are being asked to “think local” and support small business operators by getting behind the state’s inaugural Support Small Business Day. On Saturday 19 October, Victorians will be encouraged to purchase from their local small businesses, including retailers, cafés, restaurants and other service providers. Nepean MP Martin Dixon said initiative aimed to raise awareness and boost trade. “This initiative will encourage consumers to shop at local traders and showcase the vital role small business plays within our communities,” he said. Small businesses will be able to use the initiative to reach out to consumers in their area and can receive assistance with marketing and online strategies to improve their business. To register, businesses can visit www.supportsmallbusinessday.com.au to create incentives for customers to visit their small business on the day. The day is also being promoted on social media channels such as Facebook (facebook.com/ supportsmallbusinessday), Twitter (twitter.com/ supportsmall), and Instagram (instagram.com/ supportsmall).


100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Frankston man suffers horse accident, booze to blame for US convicts Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 4 October 1913. MR M. Brody, of Frankston, had a rather startling experience on Friday last. He was unharnessing a young horse in the Pier Hotel yard, when the animal became frightened and made off. Mr Brody grabbed the reins, but the horse pulled him along till the trap struck an obstruction and overturned, striking Mr Brody. He was rather severely hurt, and was confined to his room for four or five days, and was attended to by Dr Maxwell. We are pleased to state that he is about again, though he has to have the assistance of a stick. *** THE chaplain of the penitentiary in Alabama asked how many of the convicts owed their position to the use of liquor, and out of 300 in the gaol, 281 rose to their feet to signify that drink was the cause of their downfall. *** THE Frankston Orchestra has made great strides under the conductorship of Mr Walter Jennings, and it is quite possible that the Choral and Orchestra will render the leading choruses from ‘Faust’ in the near future. *** AT the last meeting of the committee of the Frankston Choral Society it was pleasing to note that the hon. secretary drew attention to the increasing number of members. The Choral Society has now 40 members and the Orchestra 15 instrumentalists and it is expected that others will join. *** ON Tuesday next, October 7th, Mr R. M. Jennings, the well-known organ-

iser of the People’s Liberal Party will deliver an address in the Mechanics’ Hall, Somerville, at 8 p.m. Musical items will also be rendered, and an enjoyable and instructive evening is assured. *** FINALITY has at last been reached in connection with the agitation that has been going on for some time by Somerville residents for improved school accommodation. A communication has been received from the Department stating that tenders for the removal and re-erection of the school will be called for next week. The National Trustees Company is applying for probate in the will of Patrick Phelan, late of Cowes, Phillip Island, farmer, who died on 22nd ult., leaving estate valued at £3045, being reality £2214 and personalty £881, Testator bequeathed a legacy of £100 to the Roman Catholic archbishop towards the erection of a church at Cowes, and the residue to his nephews and nieces. *** AT a special meeting of the Mornington Loyal Celebration League, held in the Mechanics’ Institute on Monday evening last, it was unanimously decided to expend up to £12 in tickets for the school children’s trip to the Zoological Gardens, which takes place on Wednesday, 12th November. Where there are more than two children in a family those tickets will be given free to all over that number up to 16 years of age. *** THE date for the lecture on “Fish Life”, to be given by Mr H. C. Dan-

nevig, Director of Fisheries, in the Mornington Mechanics’ Institute, has been fixed for Thursday, 28rd October. Mr Dannevig is at present on a cruise, and is taking a number of views for the purpose of illustrating his lecture, which will doubtless be most instructive and interesting. Major Campbell, who is making all arrangements, and also paying the expenses, deserves the best thanks of the community for his enterprise. The admission to the lecture is free. *** MR W. Schultz, of the Pier Hotel, Frankston, has just completed an addition to his establishment which will prove a great convenience to motorists and the travelling public generally. The now building consists of a commodious garage and stables, 60ft x 16ft, built of sand and cement blocks, the latter being made by himself. When completed there will be room for three motor cars, a buggy shed, and a noose box. In the space allotted to the motors a pit has been excavated, so that the person in charge of car can get underneath with ease to effect any necessary repairs. *** A COMPLIMENTARY social do for the Hastings footballers was held in the local hall on Friday, September 26th. A very enjoyable night’s dancing was spent, interspersed with songs by Misses Hodgins, Reid and Jones and Messrs F. A. Tubbs and J. Carmichael, which were much appreciated by all. Rev. C. Eva spoke in a very efficient manner on the excellent way that the Blue and Whites had come to the top of the tree. At the start of the season we heard a lot about what

other clubs were going to do, but Hastings is still on top, and likely to stop there, too. Mr J. D. Hodgins (the President) responded on behalf of the footballers, and said that they did their best and all pulled together with excellent results. *** THE son of the local storekeeper, Willie Berry, whilst in charge of a horse and cart at the Military reserve met with a painful accident. The horse took fright at the noise of a motor and bolted. The lad was thrown to the ground and had his arm broken. *** THE poultry lecture as announced to be given by Mr Rintoul, an expert attached to the Department of Agriculture, fell through owing to the lecturer not putting in an appearance. There was only a moderate attendance. The President of the Progress Association, Mr J. Archibald, however, proved equal to the occasion, and opened a discussion on poultry, and related reminiscences of an amusing character. Others also contributed items on various matters appertaining to poultry keeping, and although disappointment was felt at the absence of Mr Rintoul, a pleasant social evening was enjoyed. *** LARGE quantities of eggs and poultry are being used daily at the Military Camp here, and poultry keepers will find a ready sale for their produce there in any quantities at top market rates. Very satisfactory progress is being made at most of the poultry yards, and larger quantities of eggs are being despatched weekly from the district. At Mr C. W. Clarke’s Skye road,

hatching is now in full swing, and it is intended that 4000 more birds will be added to the flock this season. An immense quantity of eggs have been daily gathered for some time, the cross that Mr Clark introduced with last year’s hatching having fully come up to his expectations as early and prolific layers. *** MRS J. Clark, of Langwarrin, scored three first prizes and one second at the recent Royal Show with Plymouth barred Rocks. *** A QUESTION arising out of the purchase of certain allotments of land at Frankston was argued in the Practice Court on Monday before Mr Justice Hood. The vendor was John William Thomas, of Scottish House, William Street, and the purchaser was Francis William Tatley, of Frankston. The complaint of the purchaser was that under the wording of the contract of sale he was not given the right of carriage way over a lane at the rear of the allotment. As the lane was shown on the subdivision plan produced at the sale, Tatley claimed that he should be given right of traffic over it. His Honor held that the contract of sale must be obeyed. No doubt if the plan were exhibited at the sale it would form part of the contract, and ought to have been included in it; but to make that order now would mean rectification, and his Honor had no power under these proceedings to deal with such a matter. Mr Schutt (instructed by Mr John Martyn) appeared for the vendor; and Mr Macindoe (instructed by Messrs Blake and Riggall) for the purchaser.

Hope springs eternal for romance By Stuart McCullough IT’S here. After months of relentless, driving rain that has twice had me building my own ark, we have finally turned the corner. The scent of freshcut grass fills the air. The sun lifts its sleepy head above the horizon before you’ve opened your eyes. The sound of birds fills the garden. Yes, spring has well and truly arrived. For some it’s a time for cleaning and for taking stock, but I see it differently. Spring, in my view, is the season of romance. As I break out the shorts and long socks, it’s time to indulge in a remembrance of things past and recall the great, lost love affairs of my youth. I still remember the first time I kissed someone. Even now, it remains one of the key defining moments of my entire life. Without doubt, I was nervous. But she was older and, frankly, a great deal more experienced than I was and did not bat an eyelid. That, partly, was due to the way she was moulded. Her hair was the colour of straw and, keeping with the style of the time, she wore a blue, zip-up tracksuit top. Unlike most of the girls I knew, she also folded neatly away into a suitcase. We had only met that morning, but I had felt the connection instantly. It was only a matter of time before our lips met. With my entire class watching on, I closed my eyes and leaned forward. She remained as still as a rock. Clearly, it would be up to me to take the initiative. As our lips connected, I felt a jolt of electricity rush through my body. Given that the carpet in our portable classroom was the cheapest that money could buy, this was not uncommon,

but I’d like to think that the magic of the moment was a contributing factor. I could hear my friends sniggering and making comments behind me, but I didn’t care. They could mock me all the wanted, but I had found something real; something that I knew would stand the test of time. Something beautiful. But before I knew it, the moment over and I was left to stare longingly into her eyes. In a reaction that I come to expect from all my subsequent romantic endeavours, she did not utter a single word to me after our lips parted. With the taste of antiseptic still on my lips, I watched on in horror as she went right ahead and kissed one of my classmates. Naturally, I was devastated.

Without a moment’s hesitation she had torn my heart from my chest like a ring-pull from a chocolate snack pack. I learned then that love can be cruel just as surely as it can be wonderful. Over the years, some of the scars of that fateful day have healed and, from time to time, I wonder how she might be doing. Has she married? Is she still doing the same kind of work? Does she still fit in the suitcase or, like the rest of us, has she stacked a little bit of weight over the years? Yes, these are just some of the questions I’d like to ask Resusci Annie – the girl who first broke my heart. She arrived at the grade 5 classroom to teach us the finer points of resuscitation, but she ended up teaching me so much more. Resusci Annie must have

had someone helping her, but I can’t for the life of me picture what she or he might have looked like. It’s fair to say that the moment they opened that suitcase and I glimpsed her blue tracksuit and even bluer eyes, I was something of a goner. Perhaps it was the face. Rather than just a random bunch of features, Resusci Annie was based on a real person. In the late 1880s, a young girl was dragged from the Seine River in Paris. The cause of her demise was a mystery and, as was the custom back then, a death mask was made. That the face of a young French girl who, herself, drowned is now used to teach people how to perform mouth-tomouth resuscitation is a sizable irony. Not that I knew all this when I met all

those years ago. I only knew that I was captivated. Despite that first, powerful encounter, we haven’t kept in contact. It’s understandable, really, when you consider the way things ended between us. In an earlier age, that would simply be that. But now, thanks to the internet, it’s easier than ever to get back in touch. I could do things the old fashioned way, but I’m reluctant to call. Besides, unless she’s changed, Resusci Annie was never much of a conversationalist, preferring instead to let her actions do the talking for her. I checked Facebook but there was no sign of her. A search of the White Pages failed to turn up any trace. Perhaps it wasn’t meant to be. Sometimes the past should remain exactly that. But before I abandoned any hope of finding someone who played such a huge part of my life, I decided to Google her. There she was. Unchanged by the years and still resplendent in her blue tracksuit, Resusci Annie (or, to use her full name, Laerdal Medical Resusci Anne CPR Training Inflatable Manikin) was available on eBay for $260. How the mighty have fallen. It was difficult to see her there, photographed both in and out of her trusty suitcase, counting down the hours before highest bidder was declared. It won’t be me. I prefer to remember as she was, back in the springtime of my youth. God’s speed, Resusci Annie, wherever you may go. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Performance HUNTERS & Collectors became a huge hit with Melbourne audiences in the early 80s playing their unique brand of rhythmic music, evolving from the cult band, the Jetsonnes. They signed to Mushroom Records in late 1981 and the following year released the World of Stone EP. Hunters & Collectors have announced their first tour since 1998, kicking off on the Australia Day long weekend in January 2014. The tour news comes amid a burst of recent Hunters & Collectors activity, including their performance at the AFL Grand Final, their special guest appearances at two Bruce Springsteen concerts in Melbourne in February, and the release of Crucible – The Songs Of Hunters & Collectors, a lovingly curated album featuring 15 stunning tribute cover versions from the likes of The Living End, Birds Of Tokyo, Neil Finn, Eddie Vedder and Paul Kelly accompanied by 15 original Hunters & Collectors songs (Liberation Music). The album is a testament to the extraordinary Hunters & Collectors legacy, one that was built not only on their uniquely Australian songs and Mark Seymour’s razor sharp lyrics, but also on their commanding and powerful live performances. The album has been the impetus for the band’s reformation. When they called it a day in 1998, Hunters & Collectors was a multiplatinum selling band, with five top 10 albums boasting classic songs like Throw Your Arms Around Me, Talking to a Stranger, Holy Grail, When the River Runs Dry, Do You See What and l See, Say Goodbye. In 2005 the band was inducted by Peter Garrett into the ARIA Hall of Fame. In March 2009 the Sound Relief benefit concert at the MCG brought them temporarily out of retirement, with a set that won rave reviews. Mark Seymour has continued pursuing a vibrant and successful solo career but he is currently looking forward to rejoining his former band mates Jack Howard, Michael Waters, Jeremy Smith, Doug Falconer, Barry Palmer and John Archer for their longawaited reformation tour. Hunters & Collectors will appear at

The Hill Winery in Geelong on Saturday 25 January, All Saints Estate in Rutherglen on Saturday 5 February and the Palais Theatre in Melbourne on Friday 11 April with support from The Panics.

Executives at Paramount Pictures appeared ready to shelve the movie out of respect for Scott’s legacy, but Bruckheimer has now renewed his promise to complete the sequel. Tom Cruise is keen to reprise his role as fighter pilot Maverick and the film shooting location has been set for Nevada. *** Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters has spoken for the first time about his fall out with other band members. Waters says he regrets taking legal action against his former band mates. Waters told the BBC he was wrong to have

tried to stop the continued use of the band’s name after he left Pink Floyd in 1985. Waters founded the band with Syd Barrett, Nick Mason and Richard Wright in 1965. David Gilmour joined in 1967. Pink Floyd was one of the most celebrated rock bands of all time, causing so much excitement in the UK in the late sixties by being one of the first bands to come on stage armed with a light show. They were one of the first English groups to play San Franciscostyle psychedelic rock. They finally took on the world with their monumental album Dark Side of the Moon selling more than 2 million copies worldwide and still selling well to this day as newly indoctrinated fans continue to buy Floyd albums from the past. Pink Floyd has remained high on the rungs of rockdom’s finest. *** GREAT family fun day ‘Feast & Family Field Day’ will be held at the Morning Star Estate on 5 and 6 October, featuring over 70 stalls including farming demonstrations, vintage cars, music, food, beer and wine, cooking demonstrations, animal farms, face painting, a CFA display, craft activities and much more. Parking is free. The event

nesia, Thailand and Egypt, anywhere other than Australia. And if I stretch my average brain I convince myself that capitalism is in fact all about democracy and nothing to do with plutocracy. *** THE ancient Greeks, after examining human corpses, decided our brain was a cooling mechanism for our body and thought and emotions came from the heart. Science might understand something about the brain but there is much we don’t know, and consciousness heads the list. Science hasn’t been able to find or prove the existence of this God in me but it does not mean it doesn’t exist. Can we predict future actions of the brain? Anyone married for more than a week knows it cannot, and any parent will tell you predicting the thoughts of children is impossible. When a human being dies science finds a way to re-use the organs but I doubt it will ever find a way to reinsert a brain, or a soul thankfully. For the record my brain froze around the same time as hanky panky ended. *** MY support for the Labor Party began with a philosophical commitment to

social justice. Well, not quite; more like family influence to the point where I began to think for myself on reaching 60. The problem is recognising this same commitment amidst the disunity with Labor’s leadership squabbles and “on the run” policies unconnected with social justice. Presently Tanya Plibersek and Mark Dreyfus stand out for consistency but for the life of me I fail to see how Labor’s policies on the boat people and single mothers lined up with social justice. On the other hand the messages coming from the likes of arts minister George Brandis and his media friends (Andrew Bolt, Janet Albrechtsen) not to mention the IPA are further removed from my thinking. Nothing a “nobody” can do other than wait, watch and hope for at least one inspirational leader rising to the top. And then there’s the mess at the Collingwood Football Club. Thank God for summer? Hah! No, thank God for Foreign Correspondent (ABC TV) for giving me perspective. *** INDIA has this traditional teaching method of rote learning producing

The album features a brilliant selection of classic songs including Dream A Little Dream with Lily Allen, I Wan’na Be Like You with Olly Murs and Little Green Apples with Kelly Clarkson. Brand new tracks include Soda Pop with Michael Buble and Swings Both Ways written and performed with Rufus Wainwright. The album sees Robbie reunite with producer Guy Chambers, with whom he wrote 6 new songs. Other tracks include Puttin’ on the Ritz, Minnie the Moocher and Shine My Shoes. “First of all, I wanted to do a swing album because I wanted to do a swing album,” Robbie has said. “I always knew I’d do another and I think now is the perfect time to do it. I’m enjoying showbiz and I’m enjoying my life and my understanding of where I am now is that there needs to be an event every time I bring out a record.” Robbie’s previous swing album Swing When You’re Winning was re-

A Grain of Salt AS an avid viewer of murder mysteries I’m often confronted with dialogue along the lines of “God will punish” or “answering to God”. I have no answers as to the antics of other people but I suspect (allowing for degree) we are all sinners and I’m certain we are all hypocrites. So if it’s true about God we all must face up to our Register of Bad Deeds, hoping credits are included as a form of balance. I quite like the idea, a future type of thing, a rose garden with prickles, but the real plus (after spending my allotted time “in my room”) would be finding some answers. Such a lovely positive thought for spring. And if not, blankety blank, a noboby’s nose knows sort of thing. *** I CAN convince myself to ignore the greed of bank shareholders by way of housing mortgages, credit cards and bank fees.

many thousands of graduates but in fact many of them unemployable in the real world. I used the rote system to pass accountancy in the 60s, came out qualified but knew nothing of the reality for another five years. An accounts clerk with a year’s experience knew twice more than I. Sure, it helps pass exams, but teaches very little. The same applies to acting, as in learning a part. Short term maybe for television in a small role, but even then it shows up. In becoming a full blown character, particularly on the stage, never. Rote learning initially may be of some use, but until you understand the meaning of what the words are saying you will proceed no further. *** BEAUTIFUL Rye cemetery (where I’m booked in) is running out of space, soon the excellent staff will no longer have a job, which is where FORCE (Friends of the Rye Cemetery) come into play.

At the Bendigo it starts with U.

Sorras and Old Boys the ones to beat PROVINCIAL By IT Gully THE Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association’s Provincial grade season begins on Saturday and promises to be one of the most exciting yet, with many teams capable of making the finals. There wasn’t a lot between the top seven sides last season while the likes of Rye and Mt Martha were capable of big things on a good day. Langwarrin comes into the competition after four seasons and three straight grand final appearances in District grade. The side will be straight into the mix. Reigning premier Peninsula Old Boys will obviously be one of the teams to beat yet again. The Old Boys scraped into the top four last season, nudging out Crib Point, but brought their best cricket to the table in the finals to win the silverware. The team knocked over Baxter in the semi-final before easily beating Sorrento in the grand final. Handy bowler Justin Parkes joins the Old Boys, which already had a very good outfit under the guidance of Glen Prendergast. With the likes of Dylan O’Mally, Wade Pelzer and John Forrest, as well

as exciting youngsters Eivion Bowen and Zac Fillipone (although Fillipone is injured and will miss the season’s start), the Old Boys again will be close to the top of the tree. Sorrento will be looking to go one better this season. Former Victorian Bushranger Nick Jewell steps up as captain. Despite rumours to the contrary, Anthony Blackwell is going around again, while Nick Davern is the coach. The Sorras have lost David Smith and Klint James, and they’ll be looking for improvement from youngsters Andrew “AJ” King, Jedd Falck, Liam O’Connor and Leigh Poholke. There is no question that with Jewell and Blackwell, the Sorras will be right in the mix yet again. Baxter is rolling the dice for last big season. There was talk of retirements but the players are all fronting up again. Adrian Mack appears to be finishing his senior career at Baxter, turning his back on an opportunity to play at Langwarrin. Baxter’s top-liners – led by captain Daniel Warwick, with the addition of Dale Irving, Sam Woolsgrove, Darren Uccello, Adrian Mack, Travis Sawers and Shane McComb – will see the side challenge again. The team finished a game clear on

top last season with nine wins and two losses (including an outright victory) but crashed out of the finals. The club needs to find some more up and coming stars. Big things were expected of Mornington last season and although it finished in third place, it too crashed out of the finals, beaten by Sorrento. Matt Foon will coach the team, but Robert Hearn has been lost to Premier cricket. It’s a massive year for the Doggies, who are celebrating their 150th anniversary year. Ben Clements (Wally Wedgewood medallist) and Anthony Gapes are obviously the keys with the bat. Mornington will be looking for improvement from young bowlers Matt Harper, Jack Heseltine and Glenn Wood. There is also plenty of chatter around that the Dogs may unleash an overseas player. New club Langwarrin is expected to be competitive. Mark Cooper is again at the helm after winning the flag in his first season, while top-liners in Andy Johnson, Dwayne Doig and David Ross are looking for big seasons. Nathan Volpe returns after coaching Seaford and left-arm seamer Andy McMannis joins the Kangas.

Scott Phillips is obviously the big in for Long Island, returning to his home club after a few years at Hastings. The Islanders are celebrating their 40th season in the MPCA. Paul Hartle, Justin Bridgeman, Greg Lamb and skipper Andrew Tweedle are the obvious stars, while the club will be looking for continued improvement from Aaron Paxton. Michael Burke isn’t playing this season, looking to have a monster football season in 2014. Mt Eliza has Jason Mathers as coach and Lyle House as captain. House missed a lot of cricket last season with an ankle injury. Tom Baron has returned from Frankston Peninsula, which is another big gain for the Mounties. Tim Strickland and Scott Creffield will be keys to the Mounties’ success this season, while Justin Grant will be a loss, due to a knee reconstruction following a football injury. Corey Harris is a key signing for Mt Martha, crossing from Rye. Chris Holcombe is not playing this season and David Sands is suffering from a serious illness. Youngsters Jordan Pomeroy and Mitch Darville will be ones to watch. Luke Chapple is the headline recruit for Crib Point, which missed out on the finals by just half a game last

season. An outright loss really cost the Magpies in 2012-13. Luke Herrington is again the man in charge, while the Pies will also rely on Glenn Barclay, Henry Dolphin, Matty Blake and Brad Davidson. Heatherhill struggled to get its best players consistently on the park last season. Its list was better than four wins and seven losses. From all reports the Hills are up for a much improved season. With Jedd Sutton coming from Baxter and Nathan Martin returning from Frankston Peninsula, there’s no reason to argue. Word is the Hills have picked up a useful bowler from Ballarat. Gun quick Ben Frith is trying his luck at Premier level. There’s not a lot of news coming out of Moorooduc. Bobby Wilson will again be in charge, on and off the field, while Miles Cordeux will be his deputy. The Ducs will rely on Dave Greensmith with the ball and Ben Williams with the bat. Success will come from the ability of the bottom six players supporting the big top five. At Rye, Darren Groves goes around again as coach. The Demons will feel the loss of Corey Harris to the Reds. They will rely again on Rhys Wynne, Tommy Barrand and Justin King.

District cricket set for sensational season DISTRICT By IT Gully MORNINGTON Peninsula District cricket was sensational viewing last season and there is no reason to believe it will not be the same in 2013-14. There wasn’t a lot between the top nine sides last season, although eventual premier Langwarrin proved to be at the top of the tree. There were just two wins separating fourth-placed Baden Powell and ninthplaced Boneo, while Main Ridge was just one game further back in tenth. Frankston YCW was relegated to Sub-district after a winless season and Seaford is the new side in the competition. Consistency will be the key this season for all clubs. Runner-up last season was Somerville and the club again will be looking to get the best out of its list. Ryan McQueen crossed from Seaford to Somerville but returned to Seaford a few weeks back.

Andrew West remains the coach and Somie again has a strong batting lineup with Keith Burdett, Ben Delaney and Nick Marshall. It is a dependable top order. Aaron Kaddatz was superb last season with the ball and, with Russell Wilkes, will lead the attack. Carrum has lost run-machine Dan Polson to Cranbourne. The Lions finished in second place last season and will be looking for continued improvement from their youngsters, led by Jackson Fry and Lachy Dobson. Shaun Foster and Josh Dent will lead the batting. Baden Powell is looking strong after winning the T20 competition. The Braves will again be led by Rhys Elmi (captain) and Elia Carter, while Josh Waldron is expected to join his teammates in round 3. Anjula Perera is back and John Harrison, dare we say, is going around again. Delacombe Park has been the big underachiever in the past couple of seasons, last season especially.

Chris Brittain goes around again as captain and a fitter and stronger Simon Dignan will be important. The Parkers’ bowling will be led by Varun Singh and Shane Deal. The new kid on the block is Ballam Park, which was relegated from Provincial last season after being beaten outright five times. MPCA legend Rob Bedford heads the club as coach and Matty Roach is captain. The Knights have picked up a few players and should be more competitive than previous seasons. Boneo coach Leigh Lowry has the youngsters training hard. The batting will be led by Ryan Jellie, Alex Petrovic, Jayden Sholl and Cam Williams. Williams will also be a prime bowler, along with Leigh Janssen. Pines might be the ones to jump out of the box. The Piners have snared Josh Wilcox back from Frankston Peninsula, while Jake Prosser crosses

from Langwarrin as assistant coach. Former Langwarrin premiership player Jeremy Weare has come out of retirement. These players will be nice additions to the likes of Ricky Ramsdale, Brett Hudgson, Brett Remy, Harley PeaceStirling and Nick Wilcox. Scott Millar returns to Main Ridge after a stint at Rosebud. Ian Rossborough has had a very good preseason and the likes of Gareth Wyatt and Jason Albress are stars. Keep a look out for youngster James Abbott. Seaford Tigers have kept all of their Sub-district premiership stars. The Tigers have outstanding juniors who will be a year older and wiser. Two-time medallist Corey Hand will lead the side, and the Tigers have also picked up a couple of handy types, including Jason Hartigan from Skye and former Melbourne District player Kane Perry. Scott Philips is a massive loss for

Hastings, who single-handedly won the Blues games last season. The team will rely on Luke Hewitt to step up. Isi Dias will lead the bowling and will be supported by Langwarrin recruit Ben Johnson, who took five wickets in last year’s grand final win. Ben King is also a very good recruit from French Island. Flinders finished eighth last season, two games outside the four. Dwayne Field remains as captain-coach and the likes of Shane Beggs, Tom Clements, Tim Clarke and Andy Power will be running around again. Simon Parrott may also return after a big injury last season. A month ago it appeared Seaford was in some strife with many players said to be leaving. However, at this stage it appears only Nathan Volpe and Andy McMannis have gone to Langwarrin. Damien Lawrence (captain), Nick Simpfendorfer and Ryan McQueen are all staying.

Subbies will be tight at the top in season 2013-14 SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully MPCA Sub-district cricket is expected to again be tight at the top of the table. Balnarring was the bolter last season, finishing on top, and Rosebud went into the finals as favourite. Red Hill was also expected to challenge for the title, which was eventually won by Seaford Tigers, the side coming from nowhere to “steal” the flag. Tyabb was the unlucky team to miss out on the four while Pearcedale and Tootgarook weren’t that far off the

pace. French Island is no longer in the competition after winning just two games last season, which eliminates the bye. Here’s how the clubs shape up for the coming season: Rosebud – The Buds lose Scott Millar to Main Ridge. He snared 35 wickets last season. Scott Clark also departs. Darren Kerr will be in charge and Dean Collins has crossed from Rye. The Doughty brothers will be relied on to have a big year. Red Hill – Simon Dart is playing another season for the Hillmen and

will be ably supported by Glenn Collett and Nick Wood. The club will be looking for continued improvement from Riley Shaw, Matt Merrifeld and Lincoln Toy. Balnarring – The club should be in the mix once again, although Luke Chapple is a big loss to Crib Point. There’s still a lot to like with Chris Murphy as coach, Brendan Saker in the middle order, the exciting Tom Hilet, and Jacob Cook leading the attack. Tyabb – The club has lost Nick Taranto to Frankston Peninsula. Luke Rus is the key to success with Nathan

Hudgson leading the attack. Pearcedale – The Dales should improve under new coach Chris Dew, who has crossed from Frankston Peninsula. The preseason has been strong with Travis Unthank, Mitch Andrew and Aidan Bock carrying the bowling. Calvin Bypost and Matt Cousland are keys with the bat. Tootgarook – David Smith is a great recruit from Sorrento. The Tooters also keep extremely important players Matt Whelan, Luke Thompson and Ash Rickard. Frankston YCW – The Stonecats will improve this season after being

relegated from District cricket. They have a host of young stars led by Jack Greenwood. Captain-coach Paul Bradley will give the kids every opportunity. Skye – The club has lost coach Jason Hartigan, but Leigh Smith steps up to the plate to captain-coach the team. Dromana – Mark Whitehead is at the helm of the Hoppers. Ben Slocombe is a big loss. Carrum Downs – The side be looking to improve on two wins last season. Steve Worker remains and Chamera Perera is clearly the key bowler.

DROMANA premiership coach Gavin Artico has returned to where it all began – Langwarrin. Artico started his coaching career with the Kangas in 2005, winning a premiership in his first season. While many people were speculating the deal between Langwarrin and Artico was done two months ago, it was only announced last Saturday at the Langwarrin end-of-season dinner. The big tip was Frankston YCW but it wasn’t a job Artico seriously considered.

Tigers on prowl DROMANA offered Nepean League coach of the year Nick Claringbold the coaching position vacated by Artico, but “Bolder” said no thanks. Claringbold and his wife are expecting a child and he decided to take a year off for personal reasons.

Eagles sign Hirst SOMERVILLE has signed David “Budda” Hirst as coach. As reported a few weeks ago, Hirst was also keen on coaching his home club Karingal but wasn’t considered. Hirst last played at Somerville two seasons ago. It is expected he will bring Karingal teammate Cal Dixon with him, while outgoing coach Leigh Stewart is finishing his career at the Eagles. “Stewie” plays his 300th in round one.

Pies appoint ‘Annas’ DWAYNE Annable is the new coach at Crib Point. “Annas” has done the job before and

IT appears there are plenty of hands going up for the Sorrento coaching gig. We reported last week that Leigh Treeby and Troy Schwarze were keen on the job. We also hear Ryan Jeffrey is keen to take on the role. Late last week the rumour was doing the rounds that Sorrento was close to appointing a retired Essendon player. David Hille certainly has links with the peninsula, being an old boy of the Peninsula School in Mt Eliza where his father was headmaster. Sorrento advertised the job in the Herald Sun last weekend.

Buds are training ROSEBUD has begun preseason training – but not under the direction of coach Nick Jewell. Jewell said the boys had taken it upon themselves to start preparing for 2014 early, supported by the club’s fitness adviser, who also happens to be a former Richmond and Carlton fitness guru as well as the coach of the Australian weightlifting team. “We were just two points away from a grand final, so I can understand their desire,” Jewell said. Jewell said Matty Payne was still a 50/50 chance of playing next season. “It’s family and friends versus lifestyle in Queensland. Hopefully he stays and helps us have another crack next season,” Jewell said. Rosebud has also re-signed forwardruckman Ben Dwyer, who has been coaching in Gippsland, along with key defender Ben Shelton. Both have played with the Buds before. Gun Sorrento under-18 player Luke Shultz has also signed with the Buds after a year off. He is a Glen Boyington-type player. “We also hope to sign a couple more in the coming weeks,” Jewell said.
