A beaut Oz Day AUSTRALIA Day on the peninsula dawned clear and sunny, and residents and holidaymakers flocked to events throughout the shire including a fun run from Safety Beach to Rosebud, and a swimming carnival at Mt Martha beach. There were activities at Sorrento, Rye and Dromana. Rosebud hosted a free breakfast and an address by Australia Day ambassador Ian Cheeseman. Also at Rosebud, Mornington Peninsula Shire announced its citizen of the year (see story below) and young citizen (Page 5).

‘Constable Mick’ top citizen By Chris Brennan LEADING Senior Constable Mick Mears is no stranger to receiving accolades and awards for his decades of work as a youth resource officer with Victoria Police. But this still didn’t prepare him for the “shock” of being named Mornington Peninsula Shire’s 2014 Citizen of the Year on Australia Day at Rosebud. The 67-year-old veteran police of-

In the seven years since its inception, the corps has grown in reputation and stature, performing at hundreds of events around the country and receiving countless commendations and awards, including the NAB Schools Impact Award and the Order of Australia Association best in show in Australia Day marches award.

Fire bans in place across peninsula

Early warning: An example of what could be coming was graphically illustrated two weeks ago when fire quickly spread from Mornington Peninsula Freeway’s median strip to a wooded gully in Dromana, threatening homes and destroying the cafe at historic property Heronswood in Latrobe Parade. Picture: Yanni

NO fires can be lit in the open across the Mornington Peninsula or in Frankston as from Monday. The CFA last week declared the Fire Danger Period (FDP) for both municipalities and warned residents to be “fire ready”. French Island has also been included in the fire ban. During the danger period, fires cannot be lit in the open air without a written permit from the CFA or the municipal fire prevention officer at Mornington Peninsula or Frankston councils. Anyone caught lighting a fire in the open without a permit faces fines of $17,000 and/or 12 months in jail. Barbecues and fires for cooking and warmth do not require a permit, but must be lit in properly constructed fireplaces and not be used in winds exceeding 10km/h. The danger period was declared after the CFA assessed fuel moisture, fuel loads, grassland curing, weather and rainfall. A glimpse of what could occur was vividly demonstrated on Tuesday 14 January when a fire that started in the median strip of Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Dromana ignited a thatched-roofed cafe at the historic Heronswood property. Police believe the fire, which had at least two ignition points, was deliberately lit. Firefighters were able to prevent the blaze reaching nearby homes. Police blocked the freeway and all surrounding roads as the blaze spread to an area known by local fireys as Wonga Gully, between the freeway and Point Nepean Rd. “The CFA looks to the community to do the right thing by their family and neighbours, and follow the fire restrictions in place throughout the FDP,” the CFA’s southern metropolitan operations manager Trevor Owen said. “Fire restrictions are in place for a reason – to help prevent fires from starting. Preventing fires is something that every member of the community should see as their responsibility. “Last season Victoria had more than 4000 grass

and bushfires, and this summer we can expect similar conditions.” Mr Owen said Victoria was one of the most fireprone regions in the world, where just two weeks of hot, dry and windy weather could create dangerous fire conditions. “While we saw several bushfires last season, grassfires should not be underestimated. They travel faster than you can run and can kill,” he said. “Living in a grassland area with dried-out – brown or golden-coloured – grass that is more than 10 centimetres high is a significant risk to people, houses and infrastructure. “It’s not too late to protect your home and property by slashing, mowing, grazing and spraying grass. On larger properties, farms and farmlets, owners can create fuel breaks by grading or ploughing down to bare earth.” Mr Owen said farmers should also take precautions with haystacks, which could self-ignite in humid conditions. “Spontaneous combustion is the leading cause of haystack fires in Victoria. Stacks become dangerous when their temperature approaches about 70 degrees and can rapidly reach ignition point,” he said. “But while preparing your property is a good place to start, it’s just as important to prepare yourself and your family for fire. Before the fire season, sit down and talk to everyone you live with. Have a fire plan in place and, most importantly, practise it. “It’s up to you to check fire danger ratings every day in summer – these help you know when the conditions are dangerous enough to enact your fire plan. Remember that if you can see smoke, you’re leaving it too late. A fire that is kilometres away could be at your door in minutes.” For more information about preparing for the fire season, visit cfa.vic.gov.au or call 1800 240 667.

Age no barrier for charity teen MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s 2014 Young Citizen of the Year Timothy Thomaidis, right, is living proof age is no barrier when it comes to helping improve the lives others. Still only a teenager, having just completed year 12 at Mornington’s Padua College, Mr Thomaidis has taken a leadership role in efforts to help the people of East Timor. He became involved in an East Timor immersion program where he worked with children, conducted English classes and workshops, and established a highly successful handicraft

venture that generates much-needed incomes for Timorese families. The Canossa Timor-Leste Shop has fostered an international business partnership between Padua and the Canossian Educational and Vocational Training Centre in East Timor. Managed by Mr Thomaidis, the retail venture sells traditional handicrafts made by East Timorese women, with all proceeds going to helping Timor families. He has also assisted in the creation of an educational bilingual film, which helps English speakers learn basic

Tetum phrases and Tetum speakers learn basic English. At the same time as conducting his international charity work, Mr Thomaidis has also been busy helping out closer to home, acting in numerous student leadership roles at Padua including:  Involvement with a reading workshop, where senior students assist year 7 students to develop reading skills.  Assisting in the implementation of the student-run 2013 St Vincent de Paul Trivia Night Winter Appeal.  Working with Ozanam Enterprises, which provides activities such as cook-

ing classes for people with intellectual disabilities.  Taking part in Leap into Law workshop run by Victoria University.  Acting as master of ceremonies at the successful public screening of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, a documentary aimed at raising awareness of the plight of asylum seekers.  Coordinating “Are You OK” mental health awareness days. Mr Thomaidis was also vice-captain of Padua College last year, year 12 social justice captain, and a debating team member.

Seascape: John Bredl is one of four Mornington Peninsula artists exhibiting at King Solomon Gallery in the Masonic Centre at Sorrento until Sunday.

Masonic gallery takes a regal name HE may have had little to do with art and even less with the Mornington Peninsula, but King Solomon is the name four artists have chosen for a new gallery in Sorrento. The quartet’s first exhibition in the heritage-listed Masonic Centre in Point Nepean Rd opened on Australia Day weekend and ends on Sunday. Foundation member John Bredl said the gallery space in the centre would in future feature “select artists from the peninsula and beyond”. The four artists involved initially are Bredl, Beverly Whiteside, Jennifer Feller and Hans Van Vlodrop. Mr Bredl said he and Mr Van Vlodrop were approached

late last year by members of the Sorrento Masons to stage a show in conjunction with a classical concert. “The combination of these art expressions was a tremendous success and the concept of continuing the gallery was put to the artists, who grasped the opportunity,” he said. The two extra artists had been invited to exhibit at the gallery “to increase the spectre of artistic style”. Mr Bredl said works ranged from “the figurative to the spectacular landscapes of the peninsula and beyond”. The exhibition at King Solomon Gallery, Masonic Centre, 3385 Point Nepean Rd, Sorrento, is from 10am-5pm until Sunday 2 February.

Zoo’s new unit provides safety net for seals By Keith Platt AN emergency response team has been set up by Melbourne Zoo to help seals entangled in fishing lines, rope and nets. Announced mid-December, the team was in action two days into the new year, saving a young seal tangled in plastic box wrapping. Head of the AGL marine response unit Mark Keenan said the funding would enable a two-person team to operate seven days a week for six months. When announcing the unit, Environment and Climate Change Minister Ryan Smith said it had the capacity to respond to hundreds of cases of marine mammal entanglement that occur each year in Victorian waters. Mr Keenan said the Department of Environment and Primary Industries, Parks Victoria and the fisheries department provided vessels for his team to locate and treat seals. Wind or waves would often make it difficult to catch the animals and he relied on commercial dolphin swim operators to report sightings of entangled seals. Most seal entanglements were reported at Chinaman’s Hat, a seal resting place near Port Phillip’s South Channel off Portsea. Mr Keenan said on Wednesday that he and vets connected to the zoo had developed a good knowledge about seal behaviour and tried to assess an animal’s condition before heading out. “All entanglements are bad, but some need more urgent attention than others,” he said.

Difficulties arose when trying to “dart” and sedate seals from a moving vessel. It was easier if a seal – weighing up to 250 kilograms – stayed on Chinaman’s Hat. Problems arose if it took to the water. “We have had the unfortunate experience of losing a seal, but they will certainly die a prolonged and painful death if we don’t try to disentangle it; that’s the reality.” On 3 January the response unit went to Chinaman’s Hat after Troy Muir of Polperro Dolphin Swims reported a small seal with a “plastic necklace”. It took nearly two hours to dart and catch the seal before bringing

it on board the vessel and cutting the plastic. “We were very relieved for this little guy because his entanglement was caught early, before it could cause significant pain and scarring,” Mr Keenan said. Mr Smith said the unit “brings together keepers and veterinarians from Melbourne Zoo, using their expertise to respond to sick, injured and distressed mammals in Port Phillip and along the Victorian coastline”. “The introduction of the unit will ensure Victorians always have a number to call and an expert team to respond when our marine mammals are in trouble.”

Judy Muir of Polperro Dolphin Swims said the unit was “fantastic news”. In a letter to Nepean MP Martin Dixon, Ms Muir said “distressed seals, and occasionally dolphins, entangled in the debris carelessly disposed of by humans” were often sighted by the Polperro team. “The deaths following entanglement are agonising and unusually cruel. The animals die, often of starvation or infection over a very long period. It is unnecessarily cruel,” Ms Muir stated. “Help has been hard to access and though a lot of goodwill has been displayed by those with expertise and a passion to help, budgets always determine the degree to which help can

be offered. Now we can access help and expertise. “Polperro has worked closely with Melbourne Zoo over many years and the specialised marine mammal staff there have been able to offer occasional assistance on the water. It was often most effective, resulting in an animal being freed from entrapment. There was a need for more.” Ms Muir said Melbourne Aquarium had helped collect and rehabilitate sick and exhausted turtles found on peninsula beaches.

LETTERS Young views

Dixon defended

IN response to letters published by this paper including “Dixon should go” and “Sickening image” as well as the story two weeks ago about [Briars Ward] Cr [Andrew] Dixon, alongside a photo of him on holiday holding a pistol (“Critical blog sparks call for probe”, The News 14/12/14), I write to express my concern over the seemingly blatant disregard for civility and local democracy. For the record, I don’t necessarily support SPA [Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre] in Rosebud at all, let alone on the proposed foreshore location. My grievances over SPA relate to cost and, in my opinion, I think [Mornington Peninsula Shire] council finances could be better allocated to other projects across the entire peninsula. But regardless of any councillor’s position on SPA, for a local paper to seemingly begin to run a campaign against a councillor because of a certain position they have taken on one issue is quite juvenile. Our council, to put it bluntly, is a lot older than other councils in Victoria. We need to have young people involved in local government so they can advocate for policies affecting Gen X and Gen Y, including public transport, sport and leisure, and access to education. So let’s put aside our political allegiances for just one moment. Let’s encourage young people to run for council and play a role in our community. Joshua Sinclair, Somerville Editor: Joshua Sinclair was the Labor Party candidate for Flinders in the November 2013 federal election which was won by sitting Liberal MP Greg Hunt.

DID anyone else read David Harrison’s article (“Antonella Celi should be first among equals”, The News 5/11/13)? He was actually suggesting that the democratic voting process be removed from the council chamber when electing [Mornington Peninsula] shire’s next mayor. Completely ludicrous. I applaud Cr Andrew Dixon in his defence of the integrity of the shire. He was, perhaps, a tad passionate in his responses. Should he be lambasted for being too passionate? Furthermore, I thought it strange that Mike Hast’s article (“Critical blog sparks call for probe”, The News 14/1/14) contained several wellconstructed quotes from Mr Harrison, while the only quotes from Cr Dixon came in carefully edited soundbites, delivered with very little context. Speaking of context: what does a photo of Cr Dixon holding a pistol have to do with the article? Torin Gallagher, Nollamara, WA

Wrong judgement I NOTE with interest that a Melbourne newspaper (20/1/14) has devoted its front page and an inside page to a story concerning the proposed erection of a monument by the City of Melbourne to the two Aboriginal men Tunnerminnerwail and Maulboybeenner (Bob and Jack) who were hanged in Melbourne for murder in 1842. One could question the justice of that sentence for a variety of reasons, but those who support the monument because the two men were supposedly “freedom fighters” are undoubtedly misguided. As Dr Marie Fels quite properly pointed out in this newspaper

(“Hanged Aborigines not freedom fighters”, 17/7/12), the primary source documents for the events surrounding the two Aboriginal men are contained in a book published by the Public Record Office, 1842 –The Public Executions at Melbourne (1984). No topic has been so distorted or manipulated for political purposes than that of Aboriginal history and I suggest your readers consider very carefully before accepting ideological certitude as historical fact. Ruth Gooch, Hastings

Inbuilt bias ALL credit to this newspaper for organising the opposing opinion pieces on the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (SPA). However, Cr David Gibb (“Foreshore is best place for a pool”, The News, 21/1/14) begins with a handicap because of bias in the presentation of Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s submissions on this subject and subsequent loss of confidence by the public. Here are some of the issues that can be challenged from his presentation in last week’s paper: His emphasis on public transport access to the pool is negated by the fact that the great majority of pool patrons arrive by car, schoolchildren by bus and the fact that even were this a factor, the Wannaeue site is 3-4 minutes’ walk from Point Nepean Rd where public transport is available. Who will gain by this pool primarily: businesses, tourists or locals? Locals will be the pool’s backbone of support and they know where a pool is and don’t need “high visibility”. Rosebud does need “a step up”, but is a pool with cafe going to cause people to cross the road? Most people using the shopping area are not swimmers, but they could be induced

SPORTINGBET

to walk and relax if the foreshore precinct was inviting, with imaginative landscaping, gardens and walkways. Loss of Crown land foreshore: Cr Gibb’s accepted rise in debt and the vagueness of how the SPA is to be paid for are both negatives. Wannaeue Place, with its proximity to cinema, library and room for development of a 50-metre pool and accompanying commercial enterprises, could be the heart of Rosebud. A foreshore SPA appendage, cut off by a major road, never will be. Margaret Reid, Rye

Keep off foreshore LIKE most, I would like an accessible swimming pool for the southern peninsula, preferably in Rosebud, pronto. Cr David Gibb’s opinion piece (“Foreshore is best place for pool”, The News, 21/01/14) advocating for the Rosebud foreshore as the best location for Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (SPA) overlooks some pertinent points: 1. An aquatic centre would deliver equal community benefit whether it had Port Phillip views or was placed a mere 200 metres further inland at the Ritchies supermarket site in Wannaeue Place (Rosebud Central shopping centre). 2. High visibility may be beneficial for greater patronage of swimming pools, but this is secondary to the need for responsible management of coastal Crown land. In our case, it is pristine coastline, beaches and magnificent natural landscapes that attract visitors. 3. Connectivity between foreshore and townships is best achieved through well-planned walking and cycling tracks, innovative parks and recreational areas that complement not dominate the landscape. 4. Site assessment reports that sug-

gest best location for a development are readily disputable, as evidenced when Arthurs Seat escarpment was deemed the best location for a new rubbish tip. 5. The Victorian Coastal Strategy emphasises that further development on coastal Crown land must be coastal dependent (that is, display “a demonstrated need to be sited on the coast and requires a coastal location to function; fulfil an identifiable need or demand that cannot be met elsewhere [and] will not result in a reduction of open space” (page 56) and the eventual relocation of non-coastal dependent buildings, where practical, reinforces this policy (page 63). Additionally, any buildings must be of the highest standard in design and function, posing minimal visual and ecological impact. How would this foreshore aquatic centre and proposed add-ons meet policy? As a ratepayer, I don’t mind subsidising a pool as it would benefit many, but will it be impeccably maintained and foreshore-worthy after 20 or so years running at a loss? Crs Gibb, Andrew Dixon, Anne Shaw, David Garnock, Frank Martin and mayor Antonella Celi, most of us want a pool but any development on coastal Crown land must adhere to policy and befit its privileged location. As the coastal strategy emphasises a shift away from unnecessary and obtrusive foreshore development, and leaving only a small footprint, it would seem your vision is, at best, outdated, particularly as there are other viable sites for a pool. We want a pool. We also need greater vision, sensitivity and innovation in the management of our foreshore. Keep the pool off the foreshore and get on with it. Mary Karamitsios, Dromana

A new citizen at 90 years young

Fundraising: Rye Op Shop volunteers helping raise money for Rosebud Hospital’s appeal for a new CT scanner are, from left, Dot Vourne, Pat Schmitter, Graham Fitzgerald and Bill Mace.

NONAGENARIAN Donald Jackson took time away from his hobbies of using a computer flight simulator and writing books to become an Australian citizen on Australia Day. The former Royal Air Force fighter pilot, who moved from the United Kingdom to Australia in 1992, decided to become an Aussie last year. At his 90th birthday party he announced it to family and friends. “Citizenship is something I had thought about for a long time,� Mr Jackson said. “However, when my Australian-born wife Felicity and I decided to leave England in 1992 to settle at Red Hill, dual citizenship was not possible and my Yorkshire background remained too strong to change. “I have two sons in England and they, with their families, have visited us on several occasions, most recently for my 90th birthday last year. “We have been back a number of times, but long flights become more difficult with age and I decided after my last visit to England that it would be my last. “I have many friends and relatives here and others who visit from overseas, and I decided that, with dual citizenship now possible, it was the time to become a citizen of Australia.� Mr Jackson was born near Huddersfield, Yorkshire, to a family prominent in the textile industry. His forebears founded a mill at Skelmanthorpe in 1829. He intended to make his career in the family business but war intervened and at 18 he left school and joined the RAF, flying in squadrons over Italy, Yugoslavia, Burma, Thailand, Malaya and Singapore.

Fund’s pledge for appeal THE Rosebud Hospital Appeal has been given another boost with the announcement that the Southern Peninsula Community Fund (Rye Opportunity Shop) will match donations up to $150,000. The offer is in addition to the fund’s initial pledge of $350,000. The $1.6 million appeal was launched to enable the hospital to acquire and install an ultrasound machine and CT scanner as well as redevelop its medical imaging area. “The ultrasound machine has been purchased and is already in use. The $500,000 pledge from the Southern Peninsula Community Fund means the appeal has reached a total of $1.2 million and it is confidently anticipated the CT scanner can be acquired and installed this year,� Rosebud Hospital’s executive director Jan Child said. Fund president Graham Fitzgerald said the organisation was “totally committed� to the project and would match donations up to $150,000 until the end of March.

“We congratulate the hospital and community on having already raised the funds to purchase the ultrasound machine and now seek the community’s further support to help the hospital acquire a CT scanner and complete all the works to develop this invaluable service for the southern peninsula,� Mr Fitzgerald said. More than 1000 patients a year at Rosebud who need a CT scan or an ultrasound are transferred to another site in Rosebud or to Frankston, with many patients being returned to the hospital for ongoing care. “Transferring patients increases inconvenience to them and has the potential to delay treatment,� Ms Child said. The hospital’s emergency department treats 22,000 patients a year and admits 1800 patients each year to its medical and surgical wards.

I had ancestors in Victoria and knew about life in country Australia of the 1860s, so I was very interested to meet Australians,� Mr Jackson said. After the war he completed a degree in textile industries and joined the family textile business, which had many Australian customers including Myer Emporium and Anthony Hordern.

friends and family in Australia. He had been working with a friend who had designed innovative poultry processing equipment and while in Australia began to see possibilities for another career – selling and overseeing the installation of the equipment throughout the world. It was on a trip to see an Australian client that he met Felicity Barrett, who was to become his wife. They lived in England until 1992, when they moved to Australia and settled at Red Hill. Mr Jackson began his writing career, first penning a history of his family, The Jacksons of Skelmanthorpe, then a history of his wife’s mother’s family, which included a surgeon on the Second Fleet, which arrived at Sydney in 1790, two years after the First Fleet. Another ancestor was one of Melbourne’s first surgeons, and others became notable figures in early Australian history. The book, The Irish Orphan, was awarded first prize in the Australian Institute of Genealogical Studies’ Alexander Henderson Awards in 2001. A third book was about his wife’s father’s family, Banbury, Barley and Beer, a history of Melbourne’s early malting industry and motor car racing, was a place-getter in the awards in 2007. Mr Jackson is now writing his own memoir of a long, full and satisfying life. “I have followed the politics, business, economics and sport of this country for many years, and I am proud and honoured to be a citizen of Australia,� he said. “But there is one exception: when it comes to the cricket, I’ll still be supporting England.�

Many hands make beach access easier By Keith Platt HOW easy is it on a hot day to go for a swim or lie on a surfboard? Not very, if you happen to have a physical disability. On Saturday 18 January, close to 300 people at Pt Leo Beach were given an insight into each other’s lives when Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula held its first event for 2014. More than 230 volunteers made it possible for 41 disabled surfers to know the feeling of being on a board pushed along by the natural energy of a wave. The simple joy of being hit by a wave can be fraught with danger for someone who does not have full control or use of their body. But with volunteers to help you onto a board and then lining up to provide a human safety net, accessing this simple pleasure becomes a reality. As well as organising volunteers, carers and their charges, the DSA’s peninsula branch has come up with innovative solutions to make it easier for the disabled to get to the beach and try surfing. Over winter the branch trialled a bead-filled “seat� that allows a disabled surfer to sit up and enjoy the view as they surf toward the shore. A harness has also been developed to make it easier to pull special wide-tyred wheelchairs along the beach and through the sand dunes. “The aquaducks developed by the branch in consultation with all DSA branches throughout Australia performed above expectation and provided the surfers with a safer experience,� peninsula president Stewart Lockie said. The new harness had made beach transfers “much easier and safer�. “Heaps of people volunteered both surfers and non-surfers and all their contributions were invaluable,� branch treasurer John Bowers said. “As well as the sea, there is a really innovative approach to the problems that the terrain sets us and, fortunately, we have a committee that is keen to solve problems. There’s also a network of talented people we are able to access. “The new harnesses reduced the physical strain of moving wheelchairs through the sand.� The next DSA surfing event at Pt Leo will be on Saturday 15 March with a free barbecue for participants and volunteers.

Wind, swell rule the waves MORE often than not the waves at Gunnamatta are big and unforgiving, but two Saturdays ago they were small and crumbled from lack of power as well as unceasing southeasterly wind. Surfers competing in the Victorian Junior Series found it hard going with the lack of swell and offshore winds, although champions were decided in the under-14 boys, under-14 girls and under-16 girls. The remaining divisions were held over until Sunday but the day was cancelled due to continuing poor surf. Jan Juc’s Grace Day won the girls’ under-16 title ahead of teammate India Robinson and Isabell Cook, of Torquay, with San Remo’s Shayla Paterson fourth. The only boys division to be completed was the under-14s, which was won by Xavier Huxtable of Torquay followed by his teammate Cole Fox, Jett Dickinson of St Andrews third, and Marlon Harrision of Mt. Eliza fourth. After placing third in the under14s of the Australian Junior Titles in 2013, Piper Harrison of Mt Eliza continued her run of form and, using her experience at her local break, won the under-14 girls division. Jessie Van Niekerk of Jan Juc was second, with Bella Wilson, also of Jan Juc, third, and Poppy Corbett of Cape Woolamai fourth. The under-16 and under-18 boys divisions and the under-18 girls are scheduled to be held at the next Victorian Junior Series event at Phillip Island, scheduled for 15 and 16 February. All results at www.surfingvic.com

Hard to score: Making the most of the crumbly surf at Gunnamatta last Saturday week were, top, under-14 girls winner Piper Harrison of Mt Eliza and, above, Jett Dickinson of St Andrews, who came third in the under-14 boys division. Pictures: Surfing Victoria

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Multiple fires ravage the region; variety show comes to Frankston Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 31 January 1914 A FIRE, which threatened for a time to cause serious damage, occured at Rosebud on Sunday. The first outbreak occurred on Saturday afternoon, rapidly toward Boneo and Cape Schanck, several places in its course being saved only by great exertions. The change of wind brought the fire back towards Rosebud. Early on Sunday morning it was threatening Mr Morals’ property, where it burnt his pig sty and did other damage. Later, it crossed the road into Mr Potion’s paddock, and aided by a fresh S. W. wind, made its way to the Point Nepean road, passing close to Mr Puttun’s house, and burning right up to the unoccupied house owned by Mr Adams, which, however, was saved. The danger was to sooner seen to be over at this point than a fresh burst of flame approaching from a point further west once more threatened Mr Potton’s dwelling, which again escaped, though the flames approached too close to be pleasant. The burning of a fire break along the Jetty road to prevent a possible change of wind carrying the fire to the west caused the house occupied by Mr Chilton to be in danger for a while, but once again, the flames stopped when almost within reach of their prey. A large number of people, both residents and visitors, were engaged in fighting the flames, which several times set fire to the grass and scrub on the seaward side of the Point Nepean

road. Several house-holders either removed, or prepared to remove, their portable property when the danger was at its greatest; but, luckily, nothing more valuable than fencing was burnt, and several falls of rain have since effectually quenched the outbreak. *** A SERIOUS bush and grass fire occurred on Mount Eliza on Saturday last. The fire started at Rowans Gully, and before it was checked great damage had been done to grass and fencing on the properties of Messrs Walker Bros, Moseley, J. Smith, Fulton, L. Davey, and Ansell. Orchard and cultivation paddock fences were destroyed, with the result that the cattle wandered at will, and finished the damage commenced by the fire. It was only by very strenuous efforts on the part of a body of fire-fighters that several of the homesteads were saved. *** ON Thursday evening next, 5th February, in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall, Mr G. W. and Madame Maude Heller, well known mystifiers and entertainers, assisted by first-class artists, will make their first appearance. Mr Heller is a mystifier and laugh maker; Madame Maude Heller, clairvoyant; the Orpheus Trio, vocalists and instrumentalists; Miss Helen Gordon, dramatic soprano; Sisters Litherland, vocalists and duettists; and Mr Will Fairbank, comedian. These entertainments are described by the press as being refined, interesting and unique. *** TENDERS are invited in this issue for the work of reconstructing and

metalling the Point Nepean Road, from near Carrum to Oliver’s Hill, Frankston, under the provisions of the Country Roads Board. ***

Tenders are invited in this issue for the work of reconstructing and metalling the Point Nepean Road, from near Carrum to Oliver’s Hill, Frankston, under the provisions of the County Roads Board.

MR and Mrs Hugh Robertson, who travelled to England for their honeymoon, returned to Melbourne on Monday. Their many Frankston friends will be pleased to see them back amongst them again. Mr and Mrs H. Collins, of “Gracehill” Frankston, are shortly leaving on a nine months trip to the old country. We wish them a pleasant journey and a safe return. *** MRS Jean White (matron Melbourne Boys’ Seaside Home, Frankston) desires to thank Mrs J. Guumes

for jellies, and Mrs M. Jacobs for box of sweets, donated to the Boys Xmas Treat, their names having been inadvertently omitted from list of donations. *** MISS McDonald, late of Talbot, has been appointed by the Education Department to take charge of the Moorooduc State School. Miss J. A. Morris formerly head teacher, who underwent an operation for appendicitis, at Dr Mootes private hospital, is we are pleased to state, convalescent. *** THE Dromana Sports Club annual meeting is advertised to take place on St. Patrick’s Day (17th March). The programme is a good one (see advertisement) and embraces horse and pony races, foot running, &c., for which liberal prizes are offered. Entries close 7th of March. *** OUR readers are requested to bear in mind the bazaar which is advertised to he held in the Somerville Show Shed and Grounds on Friday and Saturday next, under the auspices of the Fruitgrowers’ Ladies’ Guild. A Parliamentary contingent will start the ball rolling at 3 o’clock on Friday afternoon, and from then to the closing of the bazaar, the ladies anticipate a busy time. The proceeds are to go towards paying for the show ground. *** IT will be seen by advertisement in another column that the annual general meeting of the Westernport Progress Association will be held at the Hastings Hall, on Thursday February 12th at 8 p.m. All interested whether members or not, are invited

to attend. A most interesting report of the large amount of work done during the past year will be submitted for consideration by the meeting. *** A GARDEN Fete will be held in the Convent Grounds, Mornington, to liquidate the debt on the Central Novitiate, Ascot Vale. The Fete will be a opened on Wednesday, 4th February, at 3 p.m. by His Grace the Archbishop (The Most Rev. Dr. Carr) and His Grace the Coadjutor Archbishop (The Most Rev. Dr. Mannix), and will be continued till Saturday evening, the 7th February. St. Augustine’s Band of 30 performers will be in attendance on opening day (Wednesday). *** SNAKES have been very prevalent in the Langwarrin district this season due, it is said, by one keen nature student, to the wanton destruction of the blue tongued lizard. This harmless reptile it appears, consumes the same kind of food as the snakes, and his destruction enables the snake to obtain his food easier and when food is plentiful the species increase. They have been most frequent where the land has been followed and left without harrowing. One neighbour turned up six on one acre. They have been found in water holes and shallow wells. One dropped down a shallow well on Mrs Saunders property, and an attempt to charm the reptile out was made by Miss and Master Saunders. Lured by the invigorating strains of an accordion played by Miss Saunders the reptile rose twice to the surface of the water and was twice wounded by gunshots aimed by Master Saunders.

The evolution of the resolution By Stuart McCullough ANOTHER year is now firmly upon us. Granted, it will take me at least another six weeks before I start denoting the date with a ‘14’ instead of a ‘13’, but I’ll eventually get used to it. It’s a strange habit, but as the old calendar is replaced by the new, people make rash declarations about the year ahead that range from the well meaning to the hopelessly misguided. It’s easy to dismiss them as the inevitable result of a celebration where sobriety is generally the first casualty. But in the spirit of turning over a new leaf, then turning it over again because I preferred it the way it was, I have decided to make some new year’s resolutions of my own. But before I make a series of hasty promises to myself that I’m unlikely to keep, it’s worth asking the big question: what does 2014 actually mean? In a strict sense, it means that the earth has rotated around the sun more than two thousand times since the Gregorian calendar first recorded time as ‘Anno Domini’, symbolized as ‘AD’. The term ‘Anno Domini’ does not – as some mistakenly believe – stand for ‘after death’. Roughly translated from Latin, it actually means ‘I feel like Chicken tonight’. It must be said that two thousand odd trips around the sun is something of an achievement, to say nothing of the kind of frequent flyer points our planet must have accumulated. But after that many trips around the block, our planet knows well enough that not all years are the same.

Some arrive with a reputation. For instance, the year ‘2012’ was somewhat cruelled by claims that the world would come to a screeching, shuddering halt. The source of this woefully inaccurate tip was said to be the ancient Mayans whose calendar only went up to the year 2012. To capitalise on the threat of impending doom, Hollywood produced a movie, creatively

entitled 2012 about the end of the world. It was a film so bad that, as an alternative to watching the movie, the end of the world seemed pretty appealing. To date, no one has threatened to make a movie about 2014 AD. This, it must be said, must be regarded as a positive sign. So what should my resolution be? For starters, I think it’s worth avoiding

anything unrealistic, even if that means letting go of some of my long-held ambitions. For that reason, it’s time to surrender the dream of ever getting to sing All My Loving as a fully-fledged member of the Johnny Young Talent Team (as per it’s original incarnation and not the resuscitated ‘Glee-light’ monstrosity). My quest to invent an eight-day week, resulting in a permanent three-day weekend will now be left to wither on the vine. ‘Sunday’ will now never be followed by ‘Funday’. The less said about my mission to translate the works of Shakespeare into Klingon, the better. (‘To be or not to be’ is all well and good for conventional types, but “taH pagh taHbe’” has a real ring to it. I’m almost certain that the Bard would have been a Star Trek fan.) So what should I resolve? Conventional resolutions take the form of eating better, losing weight and spending time with family. I have nothing against any of those things, but they’re hardly very imaginative. In fact, all kinds of claims of selfimprovement are made when staring down the barrel of a new year. Finances, diet and kindness and common subjects also. I’m torn. On the one hand, I want to avoid being predictable and for my objectives to have a little glamour about them. But I’m desperate to avoid being so unrealistic as to be utterly delusional. There’s no point waiting – the time has come to declare my hand. So here’s my resolution for the New Year: I will not become embroiled in an armed skirmish in the Baltic states.

Just to be clear, that’s without exception and even if provoked. I also declare that I will not attempt to land a manned space mission on the planet Mars without first seeking permission from the intergalactic overlords that currently rule the red planet with a green but ultimately iron-like fist. If that doesn’t sound like enough, then finally there’s this: I sincerely promise to stop writing weekly letters to Johnny Young to plead my case for a mature age entry scheme to his Talent School. This will come as a relief not only to Johnny but to my wife also who, I think, is tiring from my insistence that I sew sequins on all my clothes. I’m quietly confident that I’ll fulfill my resolutions. Truth be told, I very much doubt that it will even be a close run thing. I suppose it’s easy enough to ridicule those who go out of their way to make a new year’s resolution, but there’s something nice about it. In fact, it’s kind of inspiring. The declaration that, in future, we will do things a little better says much about the inherently optimistic nature of human beings. We want to improve because we always think we can. The heralding of a new year is as much about farewelling the old and, for me, I won’t miss 2013 much. That’s not because I was drawn into a Balkan conflict or that I resent not getting a reply from Johnny Young. It’s more that I always think I can do better. Best wishes for 2014. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Performance LISA McCune will play Anna Leonowens in the Tony Award-winning Australian production of The King and I, which is being revived this year by John Frost and Opera Australia. The King of Siam will be played by by Jason Scott Lee. The King and I also stars Chinese-born Australian opera singer Shu-Cheen Yu as Lady Thiang and Adrian Li Donni as Lun Tha, and is directed by Christopher Renshaw, with scenic design by Brian Thomson, costumes by Roger Kirk and lighting by Nigel Levings. John Frost’s now legendary Australian production premiered at the Adelaide Festival Theatre in 1991. Directed by West End director Christopher Renshaw and starring Hayley Mills as Anna, it played to sell out houses around the country. In 1996, the production went on to win four Tony Awards on Broadway: Best Revival of a Musical, Best Performance by an Actress in a Musical (Donna Murphy), Best Scenic Design (Brian Thomson) and Best Costume Design (Roger Kirk). The Broadway season was followed by a US tour. In 2000, the production opened at the London Palladium with Elaine Paige as Anna where it played for nearly two years before embarking on a UK tour. Christopher Renshaw returns to Australia to revive the production, with its stunning Thai-inspired set design by Brian Thomson, sumptuous costumes by Roger Kirk and lighting by Nigel Levings. Susan Kikuchi will recreate the original Jerome Robbins choreography as well as the choreography of her mother Yuriko who appeared in the 1951 Broadway production and the 1956 film. The King and I opens in at the Princess Theatre, Melbourne in June. Tickets 1300 111 011. www.thekingandimusical.com.au *** Many TV fans are mourning the deaths of Russell Johnson, who played Professor in Gilligan’s Island and

Dave Madden, who was the band manager Reuben Kincaid in the TV series The Partridge Family. Canadian-born Madden also appeared in Bewitched, Barney Miller, Happy Days, The Love Boat and Fantasy Island. Russell Johnson also appeared in 77 Sunset Strip, Gunsmoke, Rawhide, Wagon Train and The Twilight Zone. Johnson admitted he had trouble finding work after Gilligan’s Island, having become typecast. *** AUSTRALIA’S favourite album of 2013 was a Pink album released in 2012. Pink’s The Truth About Love has been Australia’s highest-selling album for two years straight, selling more than 560,000 copies in Australia, with about 200,000 of those sold last year. Pink’s album spent four weeks at No.1 this week and 35 weeks in the Top 10. It never left the Top 40. Pink also scored the year’s highest selling music DVD with her The Truth

about Love concert, filmed in Melbourne. 2013’s second biggest seller was Katy Perry’s Prism which sold 179,000 copies in 10 weeks. The biggest selling original Australian album released in 2013 was Russell Morris’s Sharkmouth, at No.33, which sold steadily all year despite little radio support. *** Neil Diamond, one of the world’s premier recording artists, internationally renowned and record-breaking concert performer and revered songwriter has signed a long-term recording agreement with Capitol Records. This historic contract unites Diamond’s complete Columbia, Uni/MCA and Bang catalogues of recorded music for the first time, encompassing the artist’s entire body of work, from with his earliest recordings through the present day. The agreement also returns the artist to Universal Music where he achieved numerous hit singles and albums with

the company’s labels in the late-1960s and early 1970s. Diamond – a Grammy winner, Kennedy Center honoree and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – has sold more than 128 million records worldwide, and garnered an astounding 72 multi-Platinum, Platinum and Gold album certifications in the United States alone. Diamond is currently writing songs and planning to enter the studio to record a new album later this year. Concurrently, a comprehensive plan for the artist’s catalogue is being conceived and executed by Capitol and Universal Music Enterprises (UMe), in conjunction with Diamond and his management team. Throughout an illustrious and wideranging musical career, Neil Diamond has had 37 Top 10 singles and 16 Top 10 albums in the USA. His most recent studio releases, 2008’s Home Before Dark debuted at No.1 in the U.S. and UK, and 2010’s Dreams, a collection of Diamond’s favourite songs by other composers from the rock era, debuted in the Top 10 and was highly critically acclaimed. www.theinsoundfromwayout.com *** ON 7 February 1964, The Beatles arrived at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, greeted by scores of screaming, swooning fans who rushed the gate to catch a glimpse of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as they took their first steps on American soil. Two nights later, on Sunday 9 February, 74 million viewers in the US and millions more in Canada tuned in to CBS to watch The Beatles make their American television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of these history-making events, The U.S. Albums, a new 13-CD Beatles collection spanning 1964’s Meet the Beatles! to 1970’s Hey Jude, was released on 17 January by Apple Corps Ltd/Capitol.

then bad mouthing to others; almost all chasing their tails. As Thoreau said: “Let us spend one day as deliberately as nature and not be thrown off the track by every nutshell that falls on the rails.” Another said: “To be busy with toys is small purpose.” Seneca replied: “Better to do no end than nothing.” Psychiatrist Glen Wilson did a multitasking study concluding the brain function addles. Doubtful, though likely, if watching porn. *** DIDN’T Billy Snedden get into a bit of bother when overseas years ago or am I getting him mixed up with Malcolm Fraser? I’ll bet he or they received first-class consular help. If you’re tripping off overseas make sure the Yanks like you in addition to your health insurance. David Hicks, Mamdouh Habib and Julian Assange appear to have incurred the wrath of our government in line with USA thinking. Even Greenpeace activist Colin Russell’s treatment appears to stem from a political situation. It would be nice to think all Australians who get into bother overseas are treated equally. It will never happen but we ordinary people like to have dreams. Maybe it depends how my ASIO mates look at it? Is there a country in this world where

anti-terrorist laws are not abused? The law is maintained by humans. If you watched the SBS program Persons of Interest you will have seen ASIO in action from 1945 onwards and the bully boys naive handling of innocent Australians. It’s one thing to check on persons endangering our country’s security but why all this concentration on family and friends? Puffed-up prefects of the wowser variety. There’s always been a list. No more communists, so other than real or suspected terrorists who else is on the current list? Leftists? Activists? Surely not socialists? Nobody’s nose knows. *** I SOMETIMES wonder about our politicians. Other than the odd fiddle with their travel expenses we never hear of any scandals of the “who’s on with who?” variety. There has to be impervious agreement between the Canberra press and pollies. Common sense assures us of muchos philandering. The French agreement was apparently broken two years ago, now French president Francois Hollande is supposedly having it on with an actress making worldwide headlines; no more privacy protection there. Yes, they’re a boring lot in Canberra but human nature rarely takes a holiday. My instincts tell me Christopher

Pyne in Canberra and locally Peter Ryan have no fears of gossip. Nothing even on those crooked state Labor powerbrokers in Sydney? *** Let’s hear it for Frankston. First from three former mayors followed by letters from residents on the joys of living there. I’ve always liked Frankston, not Geoff Shaw obviously, nor the way the shopping precinct has been mauled by design, nor the impossibility of getting a parking spot near the hospital or the train station but the rest is good stuff. I laughed when reading in The Age of the disrespectful comments if one mentions living there. I lived there for 5 years, Bonbeach for 7 years and currently reside in Rye. The Mornington Peninsula is wracked with a subtle form of snobbery but surely no different than anywhere else? I’m betting Navy types will think they are superior to Army types and so on. Never to be taken seriously; it’s a joke. *** Super funds aside, there are certain other things which shall forever remain a mystery. The enthusiasm of many Australians for Halloween and 20/20 cricket? Then there’s the ever constant question of the reason why so many poorer people (I’m a paid-up member) honestly believe Tony Abbott’s government will govern in their interests? Unbelievably some are smokers and

The Beatles’ American albums differed from the band’s UK albums in a variety of ways, including different track lists, song mixes, album titles, and art. The albums are presented in mono and stereo, with the exception of The Beatles’ Story and Hey Jude, which are in stereo only. Collected in a boxed set with faithfully replicated original LP artwork, including the albums’ inner sleeves, the 13 CDs are accompanied by a 64-page booklet with Beatles photos and promotional art from the time, as well as a new essay by American author and television executive Bill Flanagan. For a limited time, all of the albums (with the exception of The Beatles’ Story, an audio documentary album) will also be available for individual CD purchase. A Hard Day’s Night (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), The Beatles’ Story, Yesterday and Today, Hey Jude, and the US version of Revolver make their CD debuts with these releases. www.thebeatles.com *** TOP 10 ALBUMS 1. The Best Of – Sunnyboys (Warner) 2. Black Coffee – Lachlan Bryan & The Wildes 3. Stillpoint – Madder Lake (Aztec) 4. Favourites – Brothers 3 and Mum (Brothers) 5. Best Of – Billy Field (Aztec) 6.

A Grain of Salt IT’S all good news readers. Petrol at $1.50 a litre, prices up on electricity, water, everything and anything, and our mate Kevin Andrews is having a close and justifiable look at welfare payments. A bonfire for shareholders and big business and we are burning up, but worry not. Eventually, interminably, we will get through it. Hope springs eternal if we live long enough. Buy up big on baked beans and spaghetti; walk to Woolies. If you smoke, buy tobacco and get out the potato peelings. If you fancy a beer, try the home brew. Bread and dripping. We on the peninsula look lovingly to the day after Australia Day and the exodus; a small ray of sunshine. How sweet it is. *** I HAVE an unsettled mind - pretty good at some things but no one particular skill. It provides me with petrol, without which the car stands still. Spending an hour at a cafe forms part of my busy schedule, as does drinking two or three pots daily. I don’t have much money but I don’t require a lot. I read the newspapers for comedy. Vain people chasing their fortune power - some succeeding for a time, walking tall or shuffling along, hoping the next person doesn’t catch up, or hiding when they are passed and

pensioners, having years of a Liberal Government behind them as clear evidence? If it wasn’t so funny it would be sad. Two of my struggling friends read The Australian newspaper, ever wary of socialists? During our last exchange I offered them the opportunity to look under my bed; declined. *** The wowsers are off the leash with the alcohol question. Expect the odd piece of questionable research (warped statistics) on the evils of drinking from questionable sources...Once it hits you of the need to be liked and you recognise your own dark side along with everyone else’s, everything falls into place...Who was the fool who suggested drivers over 70 should be subject to annual driving tests?...“Two Wongs don’t make a white” said Arthur Calwell; nothing has changed apparently...”Summertime and the yobbos are easy, hoons are jumpin’ and the bogans are high; the louts are rich and the creeps are good lookin’; so hush little baby, don’t you cry” [Michael Leunig, genius]...hooroo... www.ello8.com

At the Bendigo it starts with U.

Kangas claim big scalp, now third PROVINCIAL By IT Gully LANGWARRIN has moved to outright fourth on the MPCA Provincial ladder after beating Baxter on Saturday. The Kangaroos have joined third placed Long Island on 72 points, a game clear of Baxter and Mt Eliza, who now hold fifth and sixth place respectively on the ladder. It was an important win for the visitors, who had failed to claim a big scalp this season. In tough tests prior to Christmas, Langwarrin failed to beat both Sorrento and Mornington. However, on Saturday, they were able to defend the 8/301 they set on the first week of the match. The Kangas didn’t have things all their own way. A 107-run partnership between Daniel Warwick and Dean Sterry took the Baxter score from 2/24 to 3/131, getting the home side back in the contest. Warwick was eventually claimed by Matt Davie for 86, while Sterry was stumped by Danny Weare off the bowling of Dwayne Doig for 38. Baxter then slumped to 7/155 before the tail offered some resistance. Ben Smith stood strong at the end with a good half century, finishing not out 50. Baxter was eventually all out for 236, the last two batsmen falling victim to Matt Prosser. Davie was the pick of the bowlers yet again for Langwarrin, claiming 4/54 to give him 21 wickets for the season. Doig finished with 2/79 from 31 overs and Prosser claimed 2/52. Mt Eliza beat Crib Point as expected. But it wasn’t the pace attack that upset the Magpies, it was the unlikely Jason Mathers who caused the damage, snaring a sensational 6/4 from nine overs. In a cut-throat contest where the result was vital, the Mounties were able to bowl the Magpies out for just 110 in 46 overs.

It is going to be extremely hard now for the Magpies to make the finals, while Mt Eliza is just a game outside the top bracket. The Pies got away to a reasonable start, Henry Dolphin and Matt Blake scoring 28 and 22 respectively. They put on 51 for the opening stand. However, things turned pear-shaped after Blake was dismissed. Crib Point went from 0/51 to 7/85. Tom Baron helped himself to 2/35 while opening bowlers Sam Creffield and Justin Savio took a wicket each. Long Island had little trouble disposing of Rye. The Islanders were just eight wickets away from victory when play resumed and took little time to wrap things up. Rye was all out for 91, Ben Ashworth (25) and Aaron Fiddes (24) the only two batsmen to score double figures for the Demons. Scott Phillips snared four wickets for the Islanders, while Chris Hocking and Greg Lamb picked up a couple each. Peninsula Old Boys easily got the 187 runs needed for victory against Moorooduc. The Old Boys had a number of batsmen who were prepared to get into partnerships and the result was 261 runs in 69 overs. Brandon Lawler scored 59 at the top of the innings to be the best of the Old Boys batsmen, while Wade Pelzer (45), Jon Forrest (29) and Glenn Prendergast (24) all contributed to the scoreboard. Brayden Gleeson was the best of the Ducs’ bowlers with 5/43 from nine overs. Mornington went for the outright victory against Mt Martha but couldn’t get the result. After scoring 271 themselves, the Dogs bowled Mt Martha out for 112 in 46 overs. With a further 34 overs left in the match, the Doggies went for the outright. Stumps were pulled after 26 overs with the Reds offering plenty of resistance and finishing on 3/62.

Back in the mix: Hastings managed to finish off Ballam Park at the weekend in their District match and keep their finals hopes alive after bowling out the opposition for 73 and 83 the previous weekend. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Upsets leave District wide open DISTRICT By IT Gully THE MPCA District cricket season has been thrown a curve ball after the results of Round 8. The final four is far from settled after some upsets and a couple of outright victories on the weekend. Seaford Tigers throwing away a golden opportunity against Somerville has opened the door for another five teams to make the finals. The Tigers were chasing just 97 for victory against the Eagles but fell seven runs short, bowled out for 90. A win for the Tigers would have given them a 16-point buffer over Main Ridge and Hastings. The Blues have shot back into contention after picking up an outright win against Ballam Park. Baden Powell is also back in the mix after picking-up an outright win against Seaford. However, it was Seaford Tigers who coughed up a massive opportunity to shoot clear on the ladder. After bowling out the visitors for just 90 in 60 overs, the Tigers had a golden opportunity to grab the initiative.

PAGE 38

They were resuming at 4/22 but had Corey Hand and Ash Mills ready in the sheds to come out to bat. It made little difference with Mills out for 11 and Hand 10. When Hand was dismissed, the Tigers were 7/70. David James offered some resistance and scored 15 but he was trapped in front by Aaron Kaddatz and the Tigers were all out for 90. In unbelievable circumstance, the Tigers were given the opportunity for a reverse outright. Somerville batted again and was bowled out for 64. Sam Delaney probably saved the game for the Eagles with 40 off his own bat. Needing 72 for victory off 12 overs, the Tigers had a fair crack at it but could only manage 48 runs. They lost six wickets in the process. Kaddatz finished with six wickets for the match, while Russell Wilkes claimed four. Corey Hand snared 4/19 in Somerville’s first inning and 6/16 in the second. Hastings is right back in the mix after scoring an outright win against Ballam Park.

Southern Peninsula News 28 January 2014

After making 9/240, the Blues then bowled out the Knights for 73 and 83. When play resumed on Saturday, Hastings needed to take another 15 wickets. Ballam Park was only able to add a further 18 runs to its overnight score of 5/55, Isuru Dias getting 5/20 and Mitchell Floyd taking 3/24. The Blues sent the visitors straight back into bat and things were only marginally better for them the second time around – they scored an additional 10 runs. This time it was Luke Hewitt who did the damage with the ball, helping himself to 5/12 from 9.2 overs. Ben King claimed 2/17 from 10 to help the Blues to victory. Michael Casey was the Knights’ top scorer in the second innings with 23. Matty Roach made just three after being dismissed for a duck in the first innings. Pines had little trouble knocking over Boneo. Defending 278, Pines always had the upper hand to win the match. Boneo was bowled out for just 137, Leigh Lowry top scoring with 33, while Chris Jobling at the other end of

the batting card scoring 22. Ricky Ramsdale was the best of the Piners bowlers with 3/40 from 13 overs, while Jake Prosser (2/6), Pat Jackson (2/25) and Brett Hudgson (2/34) all contributed to the win. Delacombe Park cruised to victory against Flinders. The Parkers had 9/198 on the board and certainly had the bowlers to be able to defend that total. It proved to be the case, Flinders rolled for just 136. Dwayne Field, after snaring 2/53 with the ball, backed up with the bat and top scored with 30 for Flinders, while Tom Clements was next best with 28. Shane Deal picked up 3/23 to be the best of the Parkers’ bowlers, while Chris Brittain added 3/31 to his 32 with the bat. Baden Powell is also mathematically back in the finals hunt after beating Seaford outright. Still 16 points outside of the top four, things would have to fall the Braves way for them to make it, whilst they need to find some more consistency themselves to challenge. On Saturday, their bowlers were at their best.

The game was in the balance when play resumed. Seaford had made 120 on day one and Baden Powell was resuming at 6/96. However, the Braves got to 123 before losing another wicket and immediately sent Seaford back into bat. They rolled Seaford for 134 and needed 130-odd themselves with 18 overs left to play. Rhys Elmi added 56 to his 39 in the first innings to steer the ship to victory. The Braves got the runs with four overs to spare. Main Ridge slumped from an overnight score of 2/57 to be all out for 121 to lose their match against Carrum. Carrum was defending just 162 for victory and eventually cruised to victory. Brad Rossborough was the first to go for the day after just four runs had been added, before wickets consistently tumbled after that. Travis Barker top scored with 26, batting at seven. Jackson Fry and Lachy Dobson were both superb. After relatively quiet seasons to date for the teenagers, Fry (5/31) and Dobson (5/55) dominated the Ridge batsmen.

Tooters still in the finals hunt after win SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully TOOTGAROOK is in the finals hunt after beating PEARCEDALE in MPCA Sub District cricket on Saturday. After scoring 205 in their first innings, the Tooters needed to be at their best with the ball to win the game. For the winner of the match, it meant a one-game buffer over the other and a position just outside the top four. There were stages throughout the match when it appeared Pearcedale was going to get the 206 needed for victory. However, Zac Stevenson, Luke Thompson and Mathew Whelen really took on the challenge of bowling their side to victory. They were superb, Whelan claiming four wickets and Stevenson and Thompson three each. Mitch Andrew top scored for the Panthers with 60 and Shayne Gillings and Stefan Bock each contributed 30 to the Pearcedale total. Skye has given itself plenty of confidence coming into final to beat top of the table Red Hill. Skye resumed at 8/69, chasing Skye’s first innings total of 173,

which they scored in 47 overs. The Hillmen tail did offer some resistance and added a further 53 runs to the total to get them to 122. Ken Sullivan, batting at 10, contributed 30 runs and Ross Corfield hit an unbeaten 18, batting at 11. Pat Clinch was the best of the Skye bowlers with 5/56, including the important wicket of Sullivan. Skye batted until stumps were finally drawn and finished at 9/121. Red Hill’s Luke Toy picked up 5/29 in the second innings. Rosebud held on to third place on the ladder with a 53-run victory against Dromana. The Buds were defending 268 and the Hoppers got off to a reasonable start in the chase. Mark Whitehead scored 23 at the top of the innings, Jay Hutchison scored 44 in only his second First XI game this season and Andrew Thomson scored 31. However, the Hoppers went from 1/70 to 4/72 and the game was pretty much over at that point. Jedd Savage came in and top scored with 53 and Steven Watsford hit 33 but the Rosebud bowlers were always in command.

Patrick Nagel continued his resurgence as a star of the competition, the Under 16 quick opening the bowling and claiming 4/30 from 21 overs. His ‘old man’ Jason claimed 3/83 from 32 overs and Brian Doughty finished with 3/33 from eight overs. Balnarring made light work of Carrum Downs. Balnarring set a monster total of 9/288 on week one of the match, Mark Walles top scoring with 66. The Cougars could only manage slightly less than half of the opposition’s score. Josh Harkness top scored for the Cougars with 40 and teenager Luke Broomhall was next best with 22. James Wisken was the pick of the Balnarring bowlers with 4/20. In the final game, Frankston YCW scored 279 in reply to Tyabb’s 191.
