Rosebud Community Bank® Branch 1087 Point Nepean Road, Rosebud

A man with the community at heart GARY Sanford was there from the beginning. Appointed the bank manager when the Rye Community Bank branch, the first on the southern peninsula, opened its doors. Since then he has led the community bank revolution in the area that has seen two successful banks thriving, and now a third opening its doors in Rosebud. Mr Sanford grew up Main Ridge and attended Red Hill Consolidated and Rosebud Secondary College. He joined the State Bank in Rye in 1976, beginning a career in banking. He moved to the State Bank regional office in Frankston in the late 1980’s and by 1993 he was working in business banking. Mr Sanford worked as a business banker for the Commonwealth Bank between 1993 and 2001, before applying for the role as the first manager of the Rye and District Community Bank. His appointment to this role was a watershed for his career as he embraced the new role with vigour. “We were only the 44th Community Bank to open its doors. It was a new concept and we worked hard to tap the community sentiment for the establishment of this bank. The results were nothing short of miraculous with phenomenal growth and profitability. “Unlike a traditional bank, profit is not a dirty word. It is as simple as this, the more profit we make, the more money we pump back into the community,” said Mr Sanford. And give back they have. The Community Banks on the Southern Peninsula have returned over four million dollars to community groups. “It is a unique model. It isn’t a matter of us handing out money. It is basically the local community creating their own wealth. The more they bank with us, the more gets returned. Having opened Rye branch in 2001 and Dromana in 2007, the bank net-

work had both ends of the Southern Peninsula covered. This, of course, left Rosebud with no community bank representation. “Things are a little different in Rosebud. The town has four banks already. The thing we need for success is community spirit, and Rosebud has plenty of that,” said Mr Sanford. “Through our existing branches, we already did plenty of business with Rosebud clubs and community groups. When we did the sums we realized it was enough to warrant the opening of a new branch.” Mr Sanford is not blind to the work ahead. “Opening this branch will add $360,000 in operating costs to our business each year. We need to generate between 50 and 60 million in new business to cover these costs. How will they do it? “We focus on customer service first and foremost. We are all local, and we want to get to know our customers. From there, we build on our current model. We find that once we start giving back to the local community, then people see us as not just a bank, but as a source of community funding and community service.” Mr Sanford has a grand vision for the combined three bank network. “We’ve donated a huge amount of money back into the community, but in the future we’d like to look at the grand projects that have previously been beyond our reach,” said Mr Sanford. “The peninsula survives on volunteers. We must continue the great work we have done to support those groups while lifting our sights on other projects. Instead of a project that requires $100,000 in funding, we want to look at projects that need $1,000,000 in funding. “If Rosebud kicks off nicely, we think that in three years these are the funding projects we’ll be looking at.”

Ready for action: The empty site in Rosebud ready for the building of the new bank. L to R: Trevor Lloyd, Lloyd Co. Construction, Senior Branch Manager Gary Sanford, with site foreman Steve.

Chickens killed ZOE Dellaportas and Jessica Connell inspect the empty coop at Eastbourne Primary School that once housed chickens – a vital part of the school’s kitchen garden project. Police are trying to find who killed nine of the 10 birds two weekends ago. Report Page 3. Picture: Yanni

Foul act stuns school By Chris Brennan POLICE are investigating the “senseless slaughter” of nine chickens at a Rosebud primary school. Eastbourne Primary School’s pupils, teachers and the broader school community were devastated following the discovery of all but one of their chickens dead in a pond in the school’s garden on Monday morning last week. Police said the chickens appeared to have been killed some time over the weekend but were unable to say exactly when or how they had been killed,

other than that human intervention had been involved. “We’re certain beyond a shadow of doubt that they’ve been killed by human hands,” Sergeant Tony Paterson of Rosebud police said. “It’s impossible to say how exactly they were killed, whether they were killed first and then flung into the pond, or whether they’ve drowned after being attacked, but either way it’s a senseless and cruel act. “It’s certainly very concerning both for the level of upset caused to the

children and for the level of cruelty displayed by the perpetrators. It’s hard to comprehend how anyone could do such a thing. The cruelty displayed is very concerning, as is the senseless destruction of what are children’s pets. “We’ll be continuing our investigation and we’d like to speak to anyone who can help shed light on the matter.” Principal Stephen Wilkinson said the school had kept 10 chickens and two ducks in an enclosed pen as part of a kitchen garden program, with pupils helping feed and look after the birds.

been here investigating and hopefully they’ll be able to get to the bottom of the matter. It’s been very upsetting for everyone at the school.” Mr Wilkinson refused to speculate further on who the perpetrators may be or what might have motivated them. He said the school would continue participating in the Stephanie Alexander Garden Kitchen program but had yet to decide if or when more chickens would be acquired.

Antonella Celi should be first among equals COMMENT By David Harrison THIS year’s contest for Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor appears marked by dejection and lassitude among one group of councillors, and a muted scuffle for the gold chain and perks – the $85,000-odd stipend and $12,000 official car – among the others. The sharply divided council seems to be experiencing a sub-split among its conservatives, which looks likely to block the logical mayoral choice, Antonella Celi, from assuming the role. Cr Celi’s conservative colleague, Frank Martin, is confident he will become mayor, for the second time in three years. He served in 2011-12 then lobbied for a second consecutive term in 2012-13, but was beaten by Lynn Bowden. Now, it seems, he is back in contention again. A return to the role of the shire’s First Citizen means Cr Martin would have

been paid more than $200,000 in three years of his six-year career as a councillor. Cr Celi’s basic claim to be mayor is that it is her turn. She is the longestserving councillor never to have worn the heavy gold chain. Denying her the role – by her own council faction – will break the unofficial line-of-succession pact that has run since councillors were first elected to the shire in 1997 (after three years of commissioners). The choice of Cr Celi as mayor should be automatic. In chronological order from 2006-07, the mayors have been Tim Rodgers, Bev Colomb, Anne Shaw, David Gibb, Graham Pittock, Frank Martin, and Lynn Bowden. Crs Gibb and Shaw have served twice in their careers. The councillor trio elected a year ago (Andrew Dixon, David Garnock and Hugh Fraser) must wait their turn. Cr Celi, 45, entered council at a by-

election after the retirement of Susan Beveridge in mid-2010. She was narrowly re-elected last October in Seawinds Ward. It was Cr Celi’s third tilt at the shire council. She ran in Dromana-based Kangerong Ward at the general council elections of 2005 and 2008, losing to Graham Pittock in 2008 and the late David Gregan in 2005. Cr Celi has not been a leading light in the council chamber, but is prominent in debate and busy in the Seawinds community, which she shares with Crs Gibb and Pittock. A year as mayor would be immensely beneficial for Cr Celi and may tempt her to take another tilt at state politics for the Liberal Party. It would be unfortunate and a bad precedent if Cr Martin was elected mayor after only a year away from the job. The role is largely ceremonial. It is well paid, with attractive perquisites.

Cr Martin was a moderate performer last time, with an eccentric habit for a meeting chairman of making points of order during debate. Cr Martin has run into fierce turbulence in his largely green wedge zone Red Hill Ward, challenged (wrongly in my view) by some activists frustrated at his voting pattern. He is part of the dominant group – with Gibb, Shaw, Celi, Garnock and Dixon – and almost always votes with it. His vote ensured approval of the controversial Cape Schanck brewery on green wedge land at the historic Barragunda property. He is a perennial supporter of building the proposed Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre on the Rosebud foreshore. While he attends meetings of Red Hill Ward Consultative Group, with which he is in conflict, he is not regarded as high profile in his constitu-

ency and rarely speaks out on green wedge issues. It is a struggle to recall any statement, major or minor, made by him during the long, contentious battle with the state government over the planning future of the 70 per cent of the shire zoned green wedge. And no public statement from him springs to mind over the shire’s foot-dragging in writing its green wedge management plan. Cr Celi should be elected mayor, for two reasons: firstly because of her clear claim to be next in line for the job and, secondly, because the whole shire community is entitled to the certainty of knowing the role will be equitably allocated. The take-your-turn, or rota, system of appointing mayors has the added advantage of removing the opportunity for factions to appoint their candidate to the role. It should be adopted and implemented by councillors forthwith.

Shire probe over helicopter flights By Mike Hast TWO helicopter flights to Red Hill Estate winery on Saturday 26 October are being investigated by Mornington Peninsula Shire. Shire spokesman Todd Trimble said the winery in Red Hill South did not have a permit for flights. The flights were reported to the shire by residents living across the valley from the winery. One resident, who did not want to be named, told The News the helicopter circled the valley before landing and after takeoff. “It scares the heck out of you,” they said. The flights have revived concerns about private helicopter flights to tourism destinations and private properties on the peninsula. The shire has been wrestling with the issue for more than 10 years following a number of high-profile cases and at least two visits to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. In 2003, trucking magnate Lindsay Fox had a win when the VCAT overturned a shire decision banning a helicopter from landing at his Portsea property. At the time, Mr Fox said people who objected were motivated more by envy than legitimate concerns about disruption or noise. That same year, Visy Industries then-chief executive Harry Debney was refused a permit to land a helicopter at his Red Hill farm, which neighbours said he had been doing for some time. In 2008 the shire took air transportation company Inchalla Nominees Pty Ltd to the VCAT over flights to Martha Cove development at Safety Beach in early 2006 and won. The Fox and Inchalla cases are cited in a “practice note” issued by the state government’s Department of Planning in December 2012 that explains how helicopter activity is regulated by the planning system.

In 2003, then-mayor David Renouf and councillors asked shire officers to look for suitable landing sites on the peninsula. “It’s going to be a very hard job because I can just about guarantee that anyone living within a couple of kilometres of those proposed sites will object. However, strategically I think we need to do that.” In November 2004, five helipads sites were suggested: Truemans Rd Reserve, West Rosebud; Long Point Reserve, Boneo; White Hill Reserve, Dromana; Hastings foreshore; and Mt Eliza Regional Park. The sites were met by stiff opposition, leading in August 2005 to council effectively abandoning its search for helipads by passing the problem to the state government. The issue went quiet for a while but reared its head in late 2011 when the council dealt with a review of helicopter use by the Department of Planning and Community Development. Some of its recommendations did not suit the shire. Shire director Alex Atkins said they appeared “geared to deregulating the low frequency use of helicopters”. He said no case had been made to strategically justify the deregulation. Mr Atkins said there was a need for a better network of helicopter landing sites throughout the state and this should be dealt with by the Department of Transport. The proposals advocated by Mr Atkins were endorsed by councillors at a meeting in September 2011. Under its current policy, council has no objection to the use of helicopters by emergency services, including police and ambulance, but requires a planning permit for other takeoffs and landings, except at Tyabb airfield. Up in the air: Helicopters used by emergency services including police rescues (right) are not restricted but private flights are banned without a planning permit.

BOATERS anchoring in shipping channels or fairways face on the spot fines of $289. Transport Safety Victoria says it received reports of a dozen instances of recreational boats anchoring in shipping lanes in Port Phillip between 21 September and 21 October. “Anchoring in shipping channels is downright reckless and dangerous – for yourself, your passengers and for the safe passage of the ship. Boaters should take a safety first approach to prevent a day on the water ending in tragedy,” TSV spokesperson Paul Corkill said “It is very fortunate that the recent incidents did not result in any injuries or fatalities.” For more information, visit the TSV website at www.transportsafety.vic. gov.au

Danger afloat

mobile device can take a driver’s entire attention away from the road, and even it that’s only for a couple of seconds, the results can be deadly.” He said the influx of holidaymakers over the summer made peninsula roads especially dangerous. Drivers using hand-held GPS and other mapping devices while behind the wheel was also banned, he said. Road Minister Terry Mulder said the new regulations were some of the most significant changes to the state’s road rules in years and reflected the “growing problem of distraction, which has the potential to result in deaths and injuries on our roads”. “We want to see using mobiles while driving become as unacceptable as drink-driving now is,” he said. “We want parents to talk to young drivers about not starting the habit, and we want people who do it now to stop. “We have all sat at the lights and seen people with their heads down, playing with their phones. We have to decide as a community that this is not on, and make it as stupid as drinkdriving.” He said a majority of young and middle-aged drivers had admitted using a mobile phone at some stage while driving, with 88 per cent of young drivers reporting using mobile phones to read text messages and 77 per cent to send texts. “The message clearly isn’t getting through, which is why we are making the fines and penalties even tougher. Any driver caught using a mobile phone illegally risks losing one-third of the 12 demerit points for a single, stupid act. P-platers will risk hitting their five demerit point limit. “We know these acts can, and have, caused deaths and injury on our roads.” Assistant Commissioner for road policing Robert Hill welcomed the tougher approach, saying mobiles were the biggest cause of driver distraction on the state’s roads. He said police would ramp up their enforcement efforts leading into the Christmas and New Year period. “Taking that call, sending that text, it’s just not worth it. It just is not worth losing your life, or someone else's.” TAC research shows drivers taking their eyes off the road for more than two seconds doubled their chance of having a crash.

VALID 12/11/13 or 13/11/2013

By Chris Brennan PENINSULA drivers are being warned of an impending police crackdown on the illegal use of mobile phones. The blitz will coincide with tough new penalties introduced this month. From 25 November, drivers caught using a mobile phone handset will be fined $433 and lose 4 demerit points, up from current penalties of $289 and 3 points. P-platers caught will face a total ban on mobile phone use, including handsfree. Under sweeping changes to mobile phone rules introduced by the state government, the ban on mobile phone use is being extended from P1 drivers on red P-plates to P2 drivers on green P-plates, which includes years two, three and four of holding a probationary licence. Acting Sergeant Adrian Shelbourne of Rosebud highway patrol said police would be out in force across the peninsula over summer enforcing the new rules. “We’ll be taking a zero tolerance approach to drivers using their phones behind the wheel,” he said. “It’s such a dangerous distraction for drivers to not have their entire focus on the road, especially when they are on unfamiliar roads like many holidaymakers on the peninsula tend to be. “It is potentially even more dangerous than being behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol because a

MT Eliza’s Shiva School of Yoga and Meditation opens its gardens for the second year this weekend as part of the Open Gardens Australia scheme. This year’s event has been supported by a grant from Mornington Peninsula Shire’s community event triennial funding program. Last week, Cr Andrew Dixon visited the ashram for a preview of the gardens, followed by afternoon tea. A suburban oasis spanning 2.4 hectares (six acres), the gardens feature a series of distinct areas connected by agapanthus-lined paths, unrecognisable from the vacant horse paddocks of 18 years ago.

“The gardens, maintained by volunteers, are a true labour of love,” ashram director Swami Shankarananda said. “Nature and spirituality are one; through nature we experience harmony, joy and peace. “Meditation is to seek inner harmony and peace, and when you have outer circumstances full of beauty and tranquillity, it supports meditation. Some of the most beautiful gardens I’ve seen have been attached to ashrams and monasteries. Gardens outwardly express the inner harmony of the soul.” Highlights include a Japanese Zen garden, giant chessboard, a native

Shire decision helps billionaire to save By Mike Hast MELBOURNE’S richest man has saved more than $800,000 after Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors agreed to change part of a planning permit for his multi-million dollar house at Point Leo. John Gandel, who made his $3 billion plus fortune in the real estate industry and reportedly owns half of Chadstone shopping centre, is building a huge, single-storey home on the foreshore with stunning views of Western Port and Bass Strait. The council in 2010 approved a planning permit for what will be one of the biggest houses ever built on the peninsula, reputedly at a cost of $10 million. A condition of the permit was two adjacent blocks of land had to be consolidated onto one title. Mr Gandel through his planner, Luke Chamberlain of Richmond-based Tract Consultants, told the council consolidating two of four blocks would cost him $525,124 in capital gains tax and $285,835 in stamp duty. The property billionaire stated the amounts were calculated on valuation done by the shire in January 2010. The two blocks in question are owned by separate companies associated with the Gandel Group. In a report to councillors, the shire’s senior statutory planner James Bryan stated the permit condition to consolidate “was to further the objectives of the Green Wedge Zone and to protect

the productive agricultural land”. “Also, it was required as the floor plan of the proposed dwelling (at the time of consideration) straddled both lots. It is noted the layout and design of the dwelling has since been amended and the dwelling is now wholly contained within Lot 2 (save for the screened outdoor family room).” Mr Bryan stated a driveway off Point Leo Rd had been “formed and the site for the dwelling has been levelled and construction works are currently under way”. He told councillors the high cost of consolidating the lots “is considered overly onerous and therefore unreasonable”. Removing the condition would not “affect or diminish the intent of the original planning permit condition or alter the on-ground outcome, presently or into the future, with the use of the land in the Green Wedge Zone”. Councillors led by Andrew Dixon and Frank Martin agreed and deleted the condition. John Gandel, born in 1935, is the son of Polish immigrant parents who founded clothing company Sussan. The extended family is known for its philanthropy. Mr Gandel’s philanthropy is focused on medical causes and the arts. In 2010 he donated $7.5 million to the National Gallery of Australia. In 2006, he was awarded an honorary doctorate from Tel Aviv University for his “business standing, broad leadership roles and philanthropic support in Australia and Israel”.

Asset values stay secret MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire ratepayers are still in the dark when it comes to knowing the value of any but the most expensive 20 of the shire’s properties. A senior council officer confirmed last week that while councillors last month agreed to reveal the shire’s 20 most valuable assets, no other values would be available. Members of the public can gain access to the register by giving the shire 48 hours’ notice, but the values of individual properties will not be shown. The shire’s annual report includes the total value of shire-owned and con-

trolled land and buildings, about $2 billion, but no other details. Civic Reserve in Mornington tops the list at $24 million, followed by the municipal office in Rosebud at $22.3 million and Sorrento foreshore at $18.9 million. Councillors agreed to release the top 20 only after being asked by The News if they believed ratepayers should know the value of properties managed on their behalf by the shire. While agreeing to the top 20, a slim majority of councillors shied away from making the entire register public. As reported last month (“Shire

reveals top 20 assets”, The News 22/10/13), while debating whether to let the public know about specific values, councillors often appeared not to know what they were voting for while arguing on one side for transparency and the public’s right to know, and on the other berating the fact that the debate had been initiated by “a reporter”. Cr Graham Pittock gave examples of blocks of land that had “disappeared” from the shire register, and asked his colleagues if they knew that properties such as the Safety Beach foreshore were council owned.

Avoid Christmas custody battles PARENTS on the Mornington Peninsula are being urged to ensure shared access arrangements for children over Christmas are organised as early as possible to avoid turning the holiday period into a battleground. Peninsula Community Legal Centre is urging families to try to agree on where their children will be staying during Christmas and make any court applications to change parenting orders sooner rather than later to avoid an expected court backlog. Where no arrangements have been made, many parents leave it until too late to bring applications for parenting orders over the challenging school holiday and Christmas period, the legal centre’s principal lawyer Victoria Mullings said. “Christmas can be a particularly difficult time for separated families, especially if parents are not able to communicate and agree about Christmas,” she said. “When parents leave it too late, the children might be shuttled between warring parents and Christmas becomes a difficult time for them. “We encourage parents to discuss this time of year and come to an agreement well in advance. “If necessary, parents should look at mediation services to assist them to reach a compromise. “Applying to court to make a decision for them about arrangements for

the children should be the last resort.” She said the Family Law Act made children’s interests the number one priority in any decisions made, including consideration of the benefit to the children of having a “meaningful relationship” with both parents. This meant ensuring children have the opportunity of enjoying Christmas and other special occasions with both parents at least once every two years, provided children are protected from harm. “Because there are so many court applications by parents regarding Christmas arrangements, some courts employ extra staff during late November and December to help manage the extra case load,” Ms Mullings said. “Seadlines are imposed for filing urgent applications in relation to Christmas arrangements for children. “If an application is filed after the deadline has passed, the court is unlikely to be in a position to make a decision in that particular matter in time for Christmas. “We strongly encourage parents to resolve their parenting issues before Christmas through mediation and by communication and cooperation in a civil manner, so their children are able to enjoy a stress-free and happy Christmas.

Looking ahead: Peninsula Advisory Committee for Elders deputy chair Marilyn Godley, left, shire mayor Cr Lynn Bowden and PACE chairman Dr Don Reeves are urging people to comment on the shire’s Positive Ageing Strategy.

Five-year ageing strategy for shire MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has updated and renamed a five-year plan outlining its “approach to support older people”. The draft Positive Ageing Strategy is open for public comment. The mayor, Cr Lynn Bowden, said the draft strategy proposes a “whole of council” and “whole of community” approach to support older people. She said the shire had been “one of the first councils in Victoria to develop a strategy, The Elder Citizens Strategy, to help plan its service provision for older people in the community”. Twelve years later the shire was “pleased to present this updated

strategy to continue to create a community ‘for all ages’, promoting optimal health and wellbeing”. Eight “key action areas” in the draft strategy are:  Transport.  Housing.  Social participation.  Respect and social inclusion.  Civic participation and employment.  Communication and information.  Community services and health services.  Outdoor spaces and buildings. The draft strategy was prepared with input from the community, local agencies and Peninsula Advisory Committee for Elders (PACE). PACE chairman Don Reeves said 29

per cent of the peninsula’s population was aged more than 60, the second highest of any municipality in the state. “This group is expected to increase significantly by 2030 and the strategy aims to ensure the health, participation and security of older people in the community is enhanced,” he said. “We encourage all older people on the peninsula and their families to review and have their say on the draft strategy.” It can be download at www. mornpen.vic.gov.au under “Your Say” or viewed at shire offices and libraries. Public comment closes 22 November. Details: 5950 1617.

Shire, VicRoads joust over Esplanade By Mike Hast VICROADS is trying to offload the Esplanade onto Mornington Peninsula Shire. The News understands the shire and VicRoads have been discussing the status of shire roads for many months but councillors were briefed for the first time last week. VicRoads can force the shire to take ownership of the so-called government road but it appears the roads authority is adopting a conciliatory approach. The state government authority has told the shire it wants to downgrade the Esplanade’s status from an arterial to a local road, and give it to the shire. It told the shire the road is mainly used by locals but it is common knowledge the summer season sees many tourists driving along the winding coast road from Mornington to Mt Martha and Safety Beach. VicRoads and the shire are discussing several options about “ownership” of the Esplanade. One is that the shire would take over the one-kilometre section between Main St and Wilsons Rd in Mornington. A second option is between Main St and just before Balcombe Creek at Mt Martha. Option three covers the entire road between Mornington and Bruce Rd, Safety Beach (the Esplanade’s name changes to Marine Drive at Ellerina Road West). VicRoads said it would take financial responsibility for “geotechnical” problems (that is, landslips) for the whole road as well as the tunnel under

Roses make for heady inspiration A ROSE garden was the setting for lessons in the intricate art of decorating hats. Milliner Felicity Northeast showed some of the secrets of her art last month to 15 women in Mornington Botanical Rose Garden at Civic Reserve. The workshop was hosted by the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, which is closed for an upgrade of its air-conditioning system. Gallery director Jane Alexander said workshop participants were given a millinery kit “and a bag of beautiful silks and feathers to practice the tricks of the trade and get their creation under way”. “Felicity Northeast first explained and demonstrated the fine art of shaping rose petals so they appeared to have just been gathered from

the garden,” Ms Alexander said. “The students cut petals to make up flowers – some flowers a myriad of soft pastels, others bold reds and striking oranges. The final creations were added to headbands and headpieces, others made into brooches and some simply wrapped in tissue ready to be revealed on a very special occasion.” Coming events run by the gallery include Young At Art on 12 November, a trivia night on 14 November and an excursion to McCrae Homestead on 25 November. The gallery reopens 14 December with the exhibition Sea of dreams: Port Phillip Bay 19152013 (part two). Details: Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, 5975 4395.

Climate fire future not news on peninsula ANALYSIS By Mike Hast CLIMATE change bringing increased fire risk is not news to many peninsula residents. A report issued mid-2008 by Western Port Greenhouse Alliance and its founding member councils, which included Mornington Peninsula Shire, warned the Western Port region was at risk of more bushfires, rising sea levels, higher temperatures and “oncein-a-century” storms becoming annual events unless measures were taken to combat climate change. The report received wide coverage in the peninsula’s local newspapers and was followed by the shire running 12 “climate change conversations” attended by more than 2000 residents.

The shire produced a booklet, Climate change: What we are doing about it? It provoked self-confessed climate change sceptic Andrew Bolt to write in the Herald Sun the shire had pulled a “sick stunt” and terrified its residents. Mr Bolt wrote “global warming prophets have had great success in screaming at us to repent or die”. The shire’s then-mayor, Cr Bev Colomb, challenged the Bolt story: “The council’s climate change booklet provides the local community with the results of research by the CSIRO into the potential impacts of climate change on the Mornington Peninsula. “Its findings are consistent with the overwhelming weight of scientific opinion, nationally and internationally.”

Greg Hunt of the greenhouse alliance weighed in to the debate: “Perhaps the blinkered Mr Bolt can tell us about the 37,000 heat-related deaths in Europe in 2003 and why we shouldn’t prepare for this possibility.” Seven years earlier, the shire first put on the agenda changing climate as well as actions to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. A 2001 report provided a framework for community action. Early actions included addressing topics such as water and energy efficiency, renewable energy, land sustainability and protection of the peninsula’s green wedge. In 2006, the shire held a climate change forum called Your Community Your Future. Arguments can be put up that the

shire has not done enough but it certainly cannot be accused of ignoring climate change issues. The shire said some of its actions included “committing $30 million to develop and implement an integrated drainage strategy” to cope with “increased rain intensity and sea level rise”. It has doubled its fire management budget, and achieved “a 60 per cent reduction in potable [drinking] water use”. The shire said average annual temperatures would increase by up to 1.3 degrees in 2030 and 3.5 degrees in 2070. There would be “increasing frequency and severity of intense rainfall events, heat waves, droughts and bushfires”. The 2008 report – People, Property and Place: Impacts of Climate Change

on Human Settlements in the Western Port Region: an Integrated Assessment – stated Hastings, parts of Tyabb and Somerville near Western Port, Crib Point, Stony Point, north of Somers and Shoreham were at risk of damage from rising seas. It stated temperature rises would place greater stress on elderly people and those living in homes with inadequate insulation. A greater demand for air-conditioning would place stress on the power grid, resulting in more frequent and longer electricity blackouts. The greenhouse alliance changed its name to South East Councils Climate Change Alliance in 2009 when Baw Baw, Kingston and Bayside councils joined. Frankston Council left this year and Greater Dandenong joined. Details: www.seccca.org.au

Brave new world for library users MORNINGTON Peninsula library users can enjoy enhanced online services following the launch of a new website this month. The shire’s Our Library’s homepage remains at the same address (ourlibrary.mornpen.vic.gov.au) but a new design and upgraded features make it easier to book items, access information and download eBooks or eTalking books. New features allow users to see book covers for most titles on the catalogue, post book reviews or comments, recommend books or get recommendations on titles. The website uses responsive design that automatically adapts the website layout to best fit the type of device being used.

The website forms part of a strategy that also incorporates the importance of cyber safety in an era where a rapid growth of technology has changed the way in which our community communicates. The mayor, Cr Lynn Bowden, said libraries offer much more to the community than just books. “The use of free library digital services has become more and more popular,” she said. “The library service provides more than books. It offers eBooks, magazines, DVDs, WiFi and computer access. It has fast become a meeting place for all generations and the new website allows even greater access and features for library lovers.”

Spring festival at heritage gardens GARDENERS wanting to follow tradition rather than grow hybrid vegetables and plants can have a field day at Heronswood. The gardens and nursery growing around the National Trust-listed Gothic revival house in Dromana date back to the 1860s and are home to heirloom seed supplier the Diggers Club. The Heronswood spring festival on

Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 November will allow visitors to explore the gardens, join workshops and have gardening questions answered by experts. The house, built above a beach where explorer Captain Matthew Flinders landed in 1802, will be open for inspection. The property has perennial flower borders, herb garden, vegetable

parterre, cafe production garden, subtropical food border and dry climate garden. There is a thatch-roofed cafe serving meals containing vegetables grown on the property. The nursery shop sells Diggers Club plants, seeds, bulbs and books. Heronswood is at 105 Latrobe Pde, Dromana, and opens 9am-5pm. Details: 5984 7321.

‘Who dares wins’ for adventurers By Cameron McCullough THE weather was terrible– low cloud and driving rain. Marc Perdu and Christian Tiriault, pilots of Spirit of Nouméa, discussed turning back to Adelaide, but they had an appointment to keep. Besides, anyone willing to circumnavigate Australia in a tiny plane isn’t lacking in a sense of adventure. This wasn’t the first expedition undertaken by the New Caledonian men. In 2011, they flew from Paris to Nouméa and in 2012 flew the same route in reverse. This year, it was Australia, with an expedition from Nouméa, counter-clockwise around Australia, and then back home again. “We had clear and sunny weather all the journy so far” said pilot Perdu, a surgeon by trade. “But today’s conditions were difficult. As luck would have it, this event was the only scheduled one planned for our trip, so we didn’t

want to miss it.” Under the cover of a hangar at Tyabb Aero Club, they were treated to wine and cheese as they discussed their adventure with fellow pilots. Their plane sits in the hangar and is admired not because it is large but for the opposite reason. The Dynamic the men pilot is described as a “light sports plane” and seems a bad choice of vehicle for long distance flying. “We can fly 1500 kilometres, or eight hours on one tank, but it is a small plane” Perdu said. The men had a tour of the Old Aeroplane Company before staying the night in Tyabb. Then it was off to Melbourne, Tasmania and then up the east coast. Why do it? “We want to spread the word about New Caledionia, but also accumulate knowledge we can take back home to the kids in schools.”

Season opens for abalone ABALONE aficionados can legally harvest their favourite shellfish from reefs in Port Phillip and Western Port for 61 days over the coming season. Most of the open days fall on weekends or public holidays, including 12 days in a row over the Christmas break. The daily recreational bag limit is five abalone of which no more than two can be greenlips. Greenlip abalone cannot be taken at any time in Port Phillip. Divers can only take abalone between sunrise and sunset and must use a blunt instrument with rounded edges to harvest them. The first two days of the season are 16 and 17 November, also the start of the recreational rock lobster season. Fisheries Victoria executive director Ross McGowan said the number of open days had been increased by one day, 60 to 61, “to ensure a continuous recreational open season that included all public holidays”. “Most of the open days are on weekends and public holidays. Recreational fishers have 12 consecutive days over Christmas and four days over Easter on which they can harvest abalone from central Victorian waters,” Mr McGowan said. Anyone collecting abalone must also carry a measuring device when in the water to ensure

the catch meets minimum size regulations. Abalone must be measured before being removed from their original location. It is illegal to take abalone from the intertidal zone, or waters less than two metres deep. The nominated open days printed on a waterresistant pocket card as well as yellow plastic abalone measuring devices are available free by calling the Department of Environment and Primary Industries on 136 186. A full list of abalone open days is at www. depi.vic.gov.au

Red Cross unit’s success IT may have few members, but the influence of Sorrento/Portsea/Rye Red Cross unit is large. In the past year the 55-member unit has raised $28,000 for Red Cross through a variety of ways including a golf day at Portsea Golf Club, a card day a Sorrento Golf Club and functions at Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron and Rye Hotel. The unit meets at 2pm on the second Thursday of the month at Sorrento Elderly Citizens rooms, Old Melbourne Rd, Sorrento. For information about joining the unit, call Coralyn Wickham on 5988 0880 or Kaye Hafey on 59 84 1672.

Art show for life experiences

Survival program: John Bloggs joined a rehabilitation program as part of his recovery from the effects of cancer treatment.

Life-changing program for cancer patients JOHN Bloggs’ life was turned upside down when he was diagnosed with bladder cancer. He was left feeling “lost” and unsure of the future after the cancer was removed and he was in remission. On the advice of a dietician, Mr Bloggs joined five other participants in a seven-week cancer rehabilitation program run by Peninsula Health. The program aims to improve quality of life, in particular the physical function, fatigue, stress or anxiety and diet of cancer survivors. It includes exercise, education settings and selfmanagement strategies. “After I had received my treatment I felt cut off. It

was more of a mental feeling than a physical one,” Mr Bloggs said. “I knew I could exercise but I needed the strength of mind to help me push through it. The rehab program helped me to do this. “It gave us the chance to become experts in our own disease. I needed to take control of the illness.” Mr Bloggs said he and the other participants “learned about ourselves and became accepting”. “I felt I recovered quickly after I embraced the program. I got my independence back, I felt more connected, I continued my yoga and meditation – something I did before I was diagnosed with cancer and, most importantly, I learnt to not overdo it.”

Cancer rehabilitation coordinator Anita Lloyd said most people completing the program felt motivated, paced themselves and managed fatigue. “They coped better with stress, gained confidence to exercise regularly and ate better than when they started the program. “The program showed us that many concerns cancer survivors had at the start of the program were addressed effectively and they continued to use the strategies, combined with regular exercise.” The cancer rehabilitation program runs in Rosebud on Tuesdays and Fridays and in Frankston on Wednesdays and Fridays.

PAINTINGS, carvings and ceramics by indigenous artists are being exhibited and sold to raise money for Aboriginal students and elders to participate in Woodleigh School’s exchange program. The program enables Aboriginal students and Woodleigh students to experience a different way of life but it is under threat because of funding cuts by the Northern Territory government. The program has for the past five years provided two-way learning for Aboriginal students from Ampilatwatja, in the central eastern deserts of the NT, and Miwatj communities of northeast Arnhem Land. The exhibition will be at the Langwarrin South school 15-17 November. Money raised from the exhibition goes toward travel and accommodation expenses of Aboriginal students coming to the Mornington Peninsula. The exhibition includes more than 50 works from the Miwatj and Ampilatwatja communities provided by 20 arts centres of the Western, Central, Eastern deserts, Utopia, the APY lands, Canning Stock Route, the Kimberley, Queensland and Arnhem Land. Susan and Emily McCulloch will conduct curators’ floor talks during the weekend. Little Bit Long Way opens at 7pm on Friday 15 November in the Dame Elisabeth Murdoch Gallery, Woodleigh School, 485 Golf Links Rd, Langwarrin South. Entry $20.

Crowds sail in to navy’s open day By Chris Brennan TRAFFIC was brought to a standstill as record-breaking crowds descended on Australia’s largest navy training establishment, HMAS Cerberus, for its biennial open day. More than 15,000 visitors flocked through the gates at Cerberus last Sunday week, well up on the 5000-7000 guests the previous open day. “Traffic was extreme from both entry points to the base and we thank residents in the wider Crib Point area for their patience throughout the day,”

a navy spokesperson said. Visitors enjoyed a wide range of activities including demonstrations by navy and army aviation squadrons, RAAF working dogs, navy clearance divers, army heavy and combat vehicles and RAAF and army communications specialists as well as performances by the Royal Australian Navy Band and the time-honoured ceremonial sunset parade. Cerberus commanding officer Captain Katherine Richards said the open day provided an ideal opportunity for members of the public

to gain an insight into life in the military. “The open day is a great opportunity for members of the public to see the range of training we offer and chat with officers and sailors about naval life,” Captain Richards said. St Joseph’s pupils got an early taste of the action when a navy Seahawk helicopter touched down last Wednesday. Pupils had the chance to chat with pilot Lieutenant Jordan Taylor, who attended Balnarring Primary School and Flinders Christian Community

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Missing motorboat returns after a month, farmer looses sheep to dogs Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 8 November 1913. MR Hanton’s motorboat, which broke away from the wharf at Frankston about a month ago, during a severe storm, has been found at Hampden. *** SIR John Madden has again suffered rather severe loss through the worrying of his valuable sheep by dogs, and it has been found necessary to shoot several wandering canine mutton experts found on the property. Surely some steps could be taken to abate the nuisance, as several other sheep breeders in the district have also suffered lately. *** MR James Henry McComb, C.E., shire secretary and engineer at Lilydale, died in a private hospital in Melbourne on Sunday afternoon. Mr McComb, who was 61 years of age, discharged his duties as usual at the meeting of Lilydale shire council on Monday last, but on Thursday he became suddenly ill, and a local doctor ordered his immediate removal to a private hospital in the city. An operation for appendicitis was performed on Friday, but death ensued on Sunday afternoon. Deceased had held the position of secretary and engineer to Lilydale shire for about 16 years, and in addition to a similar position in the local water trust he was secretary to the Lilydale to Warburton Railway Construction Trust during the most troublous era of its existence. He was also a local preacher and an officer in the Lilydale Methodist Church, and by all sections of the community he was held in high esteem. He leaves

a widow and a family of six daughters and one son, most of whom are grown up. *** MR C. Grice, of Frankston, rode four winners at a picnic race meeting at Corowa last week. *** MR S. S. Price, dentist, has notified us that, owing to a rush of business at his city rooms, he has been unable to visit Frankston during the last three weeks, but he will be in attendance at Nurse Jackson’s on Sunday, November 16. *** MR Andrew Male has sold his brick villa, in Main Street, Mornington, to Mr Blair, and the latter has disposed of the residence in Barkley Street to Mr R. Ford, at satisfactory prices. *** THIS (Saturday) evening, in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall, the last of the series of socials in connection with St. Paul’s Church will be held. A good programme has been prepared, and an enjoyable evening is assured. *** A TEAM of gentlemen tennis players from Mornington visited Frankston on Saturday last to try conclusions with the locals. The weather was beautifully fine, and after an interesting afternoon’s play, Frankston proved victorious. A dainty afternoon tea was provided by the local ladies, and was much appreciated. *** ON Wednesday last, 5th inst., Mr Walter Male, son of Cr Male, of Mornington, was united in the bonds of matrimony with Miss Katie Thorne, second daughter of Mr and

Mrs James Thorne, of Green Island. *** SIR John Madden has again suffered rather severe loss through the worrying of his valuable sheep by dogs, and it has been found necessary to shoot several wandering canine mutton experts found on the property. Surely some steps could be taken to abate the nuisance, as several other sheep breeders in the district have also suffered lately.

We are pleased to state that the Rev R. Jackson, who has been laid aside for a fortnight with a sever cold, is now convalescent, and able to resume his duties. *** THE monthly committee meeting of the Frankston Mechanics’ Institute, was held on Monday evening last, 3rd November, the principal business being in connection with the proposed additions. The committee at the previous meeting decided to issue debentures to cover the cost of the building, which embraces a members’ library room, a public reading room, and a large entrance hall. The vice-president, Mr A. E. Bates, at the request of

the committee, undertook to distribute the debentures, and reported at the meeting on the 3rd inst., that the full amount had been disposed of, principally to local residents. *** MISS Queenie Young returned to Frankston on Thursday after an extended holiday in Tasmania. On the eve of her departure from Stanley, a pleasant social evening was tendered her. *** WE are pleased to state that the Rev R. Jackson, who has been laid aside for a fortnight with a severe cold, is now convalescent, and able to resume his duties. *** “NOTHING doing,” is the answer obtained from residents of Frankston in reply to inquiries as to what is being done re the annual Frankston show. Surely it is time a move was being made to get the preliminary arrangements under way. *** WE have received a letter signed “Fairness,” Somerville, complaining that the Frankston Choral Society has not published balance sheets of their concerts held at Somerville and Frankston, and stating that they ought to do so, in justice to those who support the society. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold their monthly market at Somerville on Wednesday next, when they will offer a good yarding of cattle, pigs, and sundries. The same firm will also offer for sale, at Frankston, on Saturday, 22nd inst., a camper’s complete outfit, consisting of tents, furniture, and a lot

of sundries. *** A LARGE number of visitors took advantage of the Sunday train service to Mornington, which started last Sunday, and from appearances it seems likely that it will be well patronised during the summer months. *** THE secretary of the Frankston rifle club (Mr C. Dalman) acknowledges with thanks the following trophies and donations:- C. G. V. Williams, Esq., president, of “Mayfield,’’ Toorak, is presenting his annual beautiful gold medal for competition. Mr W. Williams, vice-president, “Rupertetan,” Langwarrin, is presenting for competition a trophy, to be called the “Rupertstan”. Donations from H. Masterton, Esq., vice-president, Frankston, H. Collins, Esq., vice president, Gracehill, Frankston, R. Ford, Esq, Mornington, £l 1s each; Dr Maxwell. “Thalassa,” Frankston, 10s 6d. *** IT is with profound regret that we have to record the death of Mr Wm. Nicholls, youngest son of Mr Thos. J. Nicholls, of Frankston. The deceased, who was only 21 years of age, and a strong, healthy looking young fellow, left this district about seven months ago, and went to New South Wales, remained there six weeks, and then went to Queensland, where he died. No news has yet come to hand as to cause of death, excepting that he was operated on in the Station hospital at Bundaberg on Saturday morning last, and expired the same day. The deceased was buried on Monday.

FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

When Kris Kross ruled the earth By Stuart McCullough ONCE they were everywhere. Highspirited rappers roamed free across the earth, bringing joy into the lives of others through their ability to bust a rhyme. But almost without warning they were gone. Whether they were wiped out by an asteroid or a sudden change in temperature, I couldn’t say. One day, they dominated the airwaves with pulsating beats and exhilarating lyrics. The next they were silenced by a chronic infestation of boy bands and Celine Dion. It was no longer enough for a rapper to be funny – you had to be shocking in order to drag attention away from all the pre-fabricated pop artists who rolled off the assembly line. The era of the friendly rap artist was over. I love rap music, particularly the early stuff. It was welcome reprieve from the airbrushed arena rock of the era. Back in the eighties, rock music mostly meant men with long hair and make up who dressed like the world’s ugliest gymnastics team. Both the musicians and the music were airbrushed past the point of recognition. Rap music, however, was raw and untamed. It hadn’t yet fallen into the clutches of the multinationals that treat music like any other commodity; as something to be packaged, traded and ultimately consumed. Back then, rap music felt genuine. Not only did it lack the machinery associated with the music business, it lacked instruments too; relying instead on drum machines and samples taken from other people’s records.

Forget fifteen-minute drum solos and song cycles. Such extravagances are surplus to requirements in the world of hip-hop. Forget, too, dazzling costumes and rhinestone-encrusted jumpsuits. Rappers didn’t dress like gymnasts. They dressed like regular folks who just stepped off the street. Albeit regular folks with a lot of gold jewel-

lery and very nice sneakers. Except, of course, for Kris Kross. Chris Kelly and Chris Smith were better known as Mac Daddy and Daddy Mac respectively. Discovered whilst rapping in a shopping mall in Atlanta in 1991, they released their debut single the following year. Sampling the Jacksons Five, the Ohio

Players and the Honey Drippers, Jump is three delightful minutes packed full of exuberant, dexterous rhyming that topped the charts in countries across the world including Australia. They were just twelve and thirteen years old at the time. There was more to Kris Kross than their music. They also made a distinctive mark on the fashion world by wearing their clothes back to front. Sadly, this failed to catch on more broadly, except for my nephew Noah who, when he was five, preferred his jeans the wrong way round because he considered the pockets at the back to be of superior quality and wanted them to ride up front. As for me though, I simply lacked the courage to go backwards. I can’t say exactly what I was doing at the age of twelve, but I certainly wasn’t producing a world-straddling pop colossus like the boys of Kris Kross. Most likely I was spending my time trying to master the art of the necktie (it was part of the high school uniform) and pulling the perfect mono on my dragster. In retrospect, I should have been rocking the microphone with my clothes on back to front. The song Jump clocked in at just three minutes and seventeen seconds and their time at fame’s apex lasted only slightly longer. They sold millions of copies of the single and truckloads of the accompanying album, Totally Krossed Out, but it was all downhill from there. Isaac Newton’s Law of Diminishing Returns took ef-

fect and subsequent releases did not fare so well. Just like when the Village People gave up their kooky costumes and turned all arty and serious or the tragic day when KISS removed the makeup and the world was confronted with exactly how plug-ugly they were, a lot of the fun vanished when the duo began to wear their clothes the right way round. After a couple more albums they broke up in 1996. Fame is a curious thing. It’s as elusive as lightning and just as dangerous. To have achieved it so early in life must be a very strange thing. Most of us live our lives hopeful that our best days lie ahead. That’s hard to do when you achieve your first and only number one hit at the age of twelve. Sadly, Chris Kelly – or ‘Mac Daddy’ to his fans – passed away earlier this year. He was just 34 years old. Pop music has always devoured its young; from Frankie Lymon onwards. But despite whatever personal tragedy might befall those who taste fame too young, there is always the music to remind of that brief, glittering moment when the world was theirs. Recently, I celebrated ‘rap music appreciation week’. I prepared a playlist stuffed full of songs by The Sugarhill Gang, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, RUN-DMC and the exquisite Kurtis Blow. There was House of Pain and Young MC too. And, of course, Kris Kross. As a small tribute, next week I will wear my clothes backwards. A fitting compliment to a true pioneer of hip-hop. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

A CONSORTIUM of business focused organisations including Frankston City Council, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Greater Frankston Business Chamber, St Kilda Football Club, Proudly Frankston, Monash University and Mornington Peninsula Regional Tourism Board have come together to deliver major business events in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region. The group considers it essential that major business events are held to service one of Victoria’s most important economic regions. With enormous growth anticipated in Frankston, and the many lifestyle and tourism options on the Peninsula, these events will put the region on the map as a key business destination. The first event on 22 November is a major address by Federal Small Business Minister, Bruce Billson, who will be preceded by the AFL’s government relations manager, Phil Martin. Channel 9’s Brodie Harper will host the business breakfast. It is expected that over 300 business people from across the region will fill the Frankston Arts Centre. The concept will be taken into 2014, with four breakfasts organised to offer keynote addresses from prominent industry and government representatives.  Bookings at www.businessfrankston. com.au or call 9781 1422 Business speakers: Small Business Minister Bruce Billson (top) and AFL government relations manager Phil Martin (right) will address a business breakfast at Frankston Arts Centre this month.

Beer fest taps into thirsty market THE Mornington Peninsula’s premiere event for beer lovers, Beers by the Bay, is back. This year’s festival aims to build on the success of 2012’s inaugural festival. Visitors can expect up to 100 different beers and ciders, lots of great food as well as an improved selection of some of the finest wine from the region. Live music from some of Victoria’s finest acts will keep people entertained while they enjoy and learn about beer. The peninsula’s own Kisschasy, in their first show in nearly two years, will headline the bill. Also featured are Twin Beasts (formerly the Toot Toot Toots), Fauves and The Quarry Mountain Dead Rats plus other acts to be announced. “We are excited to be able to bring the festival back for a second year,” event director Rod Stoller said. “We had loads of great feedback from last year so we are looking forward to bringing an even bigger and better festival for 2013. “Several additions have been made for this year. Most notably this year’s festival will be a family-friendly event, with a designated children’s area featuring kids rides, face painting and other amusements. “There will be several new breweries, a larger focus on wine, lots of new food stalls and a renewed focus on all things beer.” The one-day festival is at Mornington Racecourse, Racecourse Rd, on Saturday 16 November. Tickets are on sale at www. beersbythebay.com.au Picture: Robert Williamson

Shutterbugs Photo Competition The Rotary Club of Sorrento 2nd Annual Shutterbugs Beach Boats and Bays competition is one of many projects organised by our Rotary club members to embrace the community of the Mornington Peninsula. The competition, Beach Boats and Bays, is a project designed for school children who have an interest in photography. The competition runs from 5th October until 12th December 2013 - a fun educational opportunity for children to showcase their skills in this highly popular art form. Awardees gathered with Rotary President Bob Donaldson

Pride Of Workmanship Awards – Rotary Club Of Dromana October is Vocation Month in the Rotary calendar world wide. In recognition of this, the Rotary Club of Dromana conducted an Awards Night, for twelve recipients of the Pride of Workmanship Awards. This is in recognition to the signi¿cant contribution that they made in their place of work, or with a community group. They were joined by their families, friends and nominators for the presentations and to enjoy ¿nger food and drinks. They exchanged stories about their various professions and trades – a distinction that is surely anachronistic in today’s world. Whilst not going into each individual citation given by the nominator, the following words, cropped up regularly for many Awardees: team player, polite, commitment, people skills, positive, punctual, excellent phone manner, productive, caring & compassionate, assists workmates, nothing is a problem,

happy, tidy workplace, community minded, good customer service, organises social events, craftsmanship, engineering skills, goes the extra yard, motivated, high ethical standards, instantly addresses problems. No doubt many other accolades could be offered, for this very ¿ne group of young people. The worthy recipients and their sponsors were: Chris Dykes – nominated by Steve Jeffrey, Dromana Roadworthy & Service Centre James Bendle – nominated by Richard Bendle, Daytona Sports Cars, in Dromana John Hebbelthwaite – nominated by Richard Bendle, Daytona Sports Cars, in Dromana Joanne Tyrrell – nominated by Val Jarman, Dromana Sea Scouts

Chris Watt – nominated by Paul Stenner, Arbsafe Tree Services, in Dromana Ray Wilson - nominated by Paul Stenner, Arbsafe Tree Services, in Dromana Jonathon Palmer – nominated by Troy Palmer, Palmer Automotive, in Dromana Mark Whinney – nominated by Pam Fisher, P.I.P.E.S. in Dromana Troy Cazaly – nominated by Mark Gysi, Easycrete Industries, in Dromana Ian Gosling (jnr) – nominated by Ian Gosling (Snr), Dromana Mower Service Daniel Johnson – nominated by Cr. Graham Pittock, Tonic Squash & Gym, in Dromana Tim Doyle – nominated by Laurie Harrington, Peninsula Farm Supplies, in Red Hill Congratulations to everyone All told, it was a very exciting and interesting night.

Great prizes for the most outstanding entrants in each category and a Rotary Club of Sorrento Encouragement Award will be awarded. The photographs will be displayed at the 30th Annual Rotary Club of Sorrento Art Show, Sorrento Community Centre, Sorrento, from 11th-18th January 2014. The inaugural event last year saw over 140 entrants which were of a very high standard from age groups- 5-9 , 1014 and 15-18 year old students from schools all over the peninsula. The judge is a well-known peninsula photographer Yanni. Entry forms are available all over the peninsula, in cafes, milk bars, shops, cinemas, and Sorrento Community Centre. Selected collection points are indicated on the entry form. 3RPP community radio has been a strong supporter of Rotary activities on the peninsula for many years and warrant particular recognition. Also the Rotary Club of Sorrento appreciates the ongoing support of Searoad Ferries, 3AW/Magic1278, Sorrento Community Centre, Peninsula Surf and Trigger Bros for this competition.

At the Bendigo it starts with U.

Old Boys in early strife after third loss PROVINCIAL By IT Gully REIGNING MPCA Provincial champions Peninsula Old Boys are in some early season strife after their third straight loss this season. The Old Boys are currently in last position on the ladder and look certain to miss the finals, given the talent of the sides holding the top six positions on the table. The champions have taken just 15 wickets in their three games, clearly highlighting a deficiency at the club. Runs against are also a concern, leaking the third most runs (689) this season behind Rye (734) and Moorooduc (701). On Saturday, the Old Boys were humiliated by Sorrento, the side they beat in last year’s Grand Final.

Set 254 for victory, the Old Boys were bundled out for just 129. The Old Boys may have been ‘lippy’ in the grand final last season, but they were sent packing from their home ground with their tails between their legs on the weekend. Unlike Peninsula Old Boys, new kids on the block Langwarrin made light work of Rye and as a result sits on top of the Provincial table. The Kangas set the Demons the massive task of scoring 308 for victory, however, as expected, they were lucky to get half way. The home side was bowled out for 153 in the chase. 18-year-old left arm quick and First XI debutant Matt Davie, the son of Alan, was electric early, removing both openers and finishing with the tidy figures of 3/26.

Dwayne Doig wasn’t needed as much as usual but still managed to snare 2/31, while opening batsmen Mark Cooper and Taylor Smith both picked up a wicket also. Mornington star all-rounders Luke Popov and Matt Harper were significant in their side’s 65-run victory against Mt Eliza. Popov picked-up 4/48 and Harper 3/47 for the Doggies, who are currently undefeated and in second position on the ladder. The Mounties’ top order failed to fire, except for Ben Tracy with 43, leaving the bulk of the scoring to the middle order and tail. Tristan Faithful was the best of the Mt Eliza batsman with 56, but was forced to retire hurt. Sam Creffield offered some resistance at the end with 28.

The match between Long Island and Crib Point went down to the wire, the Islanders getting home by just two runs. After making 205 in week one of the match, the Magpies had the Islanders on the ropes at 8/158. However, Jake Middleton (36) and Zac Clements (21), batting at nine and 10, ensured that the Islanders got over the line in a thriller. The Magpies’ Luke Herrington picked-up four wickets, including those of Paul Hartle (11) and Scott Phillips (16). Glen Barclay also helped himself to four wickets. Baxter did what was expected and got the job done against Moorooduc. Set 288 for victory, the Ducs were never in the hunt, losing their first three wickets for 25.

Keeper Nick Williams was the shining light in what was a bleak day for the Ducs, top scoring with 52. Dale Irving was superb for Baxter with 5/79 from 18 overs, while Adrian Mack made it nine wickets in three matches with 4/33 off 17 overs. Mack is in devastating form at the moment. Heatherhill’s 174 last week didn’t look like enough to beat Mt Martha, however it proved to be 60-odd runs more than what they needed to get the points. The Hills bowled out the Reds for just 106. Matty Meagher was the star with 5/28 off 22 overs. Meagher has taken 11 wickets in three matches this season. Opening partner Daniel Woods snared 2/20 from 16.5 overs.

Thrashing: Hastings made fantastic use of the ball to bowl out Seaford for just 91 runs on the way to an impressive District win over Seaford Tigers. Pictures: Andrew Hurst

Tigers, Knights still searching for first win DISTRICT By IT Gully SEAFORD and Ballam Park remain winless in MPCA District cricket after the opening three rounds of the season. The Knights were relegated from Provincial last season and haven’t fared much better in the lesser grade, while Seaford has not been able to recover from the player losses it experienced in the off-season. At the other end of the table, Somerville, Delacombe Park and Pines all remain undefeated. Carrum and Hastings both have two wins from three matches and five sides have notched up one win each. Main Ridge and Flinders played a one-day match on Saturday after a rain-affected day one. It was a vital game for the Ridge, who came into the clash without a win.

They restricted Flinders to 7/153 from 40 overs, Jason Albress the best with the ball, taking 2/31 from 10 overs. Louis Gillies was the chief run scorer for Flinders with an unbeaten 54, while Tim Clarke opened with 30. In the chase, Michael Holmes got his side away to a flier with 52, while Gareth Wyatt made sure of the win with 35. The Ridge got the runs with seven overs to spare. Charlie Gillies was the best of the Flinders’ bowlers with 2/27 from seven overs. Last year’s runner-up, Somerville, sits on top of the ladder after smashing Ballam Park. Aaron Kaddatz tore through the Knights’ batting line-up, finishing with 5/18, while Keith Burdett had a trundle and picked-up 2/14.

Former Langwarrin Third XI player Zac Pedderson proved he has what it takes to play at the higher level, top scoring for the Knights with an unbeaten 41. Delacombe Park made light work of Boneo, belting them by more than 150 runs. Resuming with the bat after bowling out Boneo for 115 in week one of the match, the Parkers lost a couple of quick wickets before Jon Guthrie and Nick Christides steadied the ship. Guthrie made 92 while ‘Chikko’ finished on 91. Ben Brittain had some valuable time in the middle, scoring 28 and Simon Dignan finished not out on 18. The Parkers ended at 6/274 off its 85 overs. Carrum and Seaford Tigers played out the closest two-day game of the round.

Carrum made 8/186 in week one of the clash and were able to bowl out the Tigers for 179 in the 60th over. After losing Gavin Gardiner-Smith early, the Tigers got their innings back on track through Gavin Whyte (32) and Mark Carroll (19). However, the Tigers found trouble again, losing three quick wickets before Dave James (30) and Ash Mills (68) provided a glimmer of hope for Seaford. Jeremy Graves was simply superb for Carrum, picking up 7/52, while Matt Ryan snared two very timely wickets when the game appeared lost, first getting Mills and then closing down the innings, leaving the Tigers eight runs short of victory. Hastings thrashed Seaford, winning by 90-odd runs. The Blues made a more than competitive 188 last week and followed

up being superb with the ball, bowling out the opposition for just 91. Ben King, Tim Birch and Luke Hewitt all picked up two wickets each for Hastings. King snared 2/0. Ryan McQueen was the best of the Seaford batsmen, scoring more than half of the team’s runs with 56. Pines was poor with the bat in week one of the match against Baden Powell, scoring just 153. It proved to be enough runs to notch-up yet another win though after bowling out the Braves for just 105. The Piners shared around the wickets, Ricky Ramsdale claiming three, Brett Hudgson helping himself to three and Pat Jackson and Brett Remy picking up a couple each. Elia Carter and Sam Mullavey were the best of the Braves’ batsmen with 28 runs each.

Perfect record has Hillmen on top SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully RED Hill sits on top of the MPCA Sub District ladder with three wins from three matches. Rosebud, Carrum Downs, Tyabb and Balnarring all have two wins while Dromana is the only side not to have registered a win this season. On Saturday, Red Hill somehow defended its 110 against Tootgarook at the Red Hill Showgrounds. At one stage, the Tooters were 5/6. Klint James (16) and Travis French (25) offered a little bit of resistance before they lost their last five wickets for 21 runs. Tootgarook was all out for 68. Simon Dart, Glenn Collett and Brent Martin all picked up three wickets, while James McCall took 1/4 from 3.1 overs. Red Hill had another bat and performed shockingly again, scoring just 115 in 56 overs. Balnarring successfully defended its 98 against Dromana. The Hoppers were bowled out for 87 with Jacob Cook claiming 4/37 and Mitchell Skvor 3/10 from 13 overs. In their second dig, Balnarring batted for 48 overs and made 4/177, Tom Hilet top scoring with 43. Rosebud got the win against Tyabb. Chasing 142 for victory, the Buds resumed in a reasonable position and with Mathew Maher scoring 59 and Brian Doughty 26,

they were able to cruise to victory. They were eventually bowled out for 202. Sam Holland-Burch was the best of the Yabbiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bowlers with 4/37 from 11 overs. Frankston YCW enjoyed a rare win, beating Pearcedale by 20 runs. Chasing just 97 for victory, the Stonecats looked shaky all the way through their innings, but managed to make 113 in 57 overs. Shayne Gillings was the pick of the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bowlers with 5/39, while Kaine Smith snared 3/21. In the final match of the round, Carrum Downs cruised to victory against Skye in a one-day match. Skye batted first and made 9/123 in its 40 overs. Patrick Beckham top scored for Skye with 32, while Steven Worker took 3/20 for the Cougars. The Cougars then got the runs with five overs to spare, thanks largely to the innings of Shane Walford (46) and Josh Spittal (38).

Rosebud Community Bank Experienced banker takes opening - 29th October 2013 the reins at Rosebud

Cutting the cake: (l to r) Board Chairman Shane McCarthy, President Rosebud Chamber of Commerce Kevin Sheaves, Rosebud Branch Manager Julie Nolo, Senior Manager Gary Sanford, Roy Doueal OAM, Bendigo Adelaide Robert Musgrove. Winners are grinners: Rosebud Primary School colouring competition winners.

JULIE Nolo has been part of the southern peninsula community bank story from the beginning. Starting in 2001, Julie’s first role was as Gary Sanford’s assistant, where she witnessed the impressing growth and strength of the community bank concept. “It was unique and exciting, and something I was very glad to be a part of,” said Julie. She became the manager of the Rye branch in 2007 after the opening of Dromana, and has managed Rye until this year. On the opening of the new Rosebud branch, Julie will be moving there. “Everyone was looking forward to the opening of Rosebud. I know it will be a great success.” Such things do not happen overnight, and much planning has gone into the new branch. “Rosebud has been in the planning for three to four years,” said Julie. “It is such an incredible effort by so many people, just to get the doors open. It will be a great relief to get started on what we do best.” Julie’s approach to banking is simple. “We provide people with the best service. People then refer others, and that is how we grow.” “I am looking forward to getting out into the community and telling our

wonderful story.” Julie is no stranger to many of the people in Rosebud. She raised her family on the southern peninsula, and has dealt with many of the community groups and sporting clubs in Rosebud through the Rye branch. “I’m looking forward to catching up with the many people I already know in Rosebud, and meeting lots of new ones. Make sure you come in and say hi!”

Bronwyn heads back home as manager of Rye branch BRONWYN Ralph started her community banking career as a teller in the Rye branch in 2003. In 2007 when Dromana branch opened she moved upstairs to become Gary Sanford’s personal assistant. Following two years in this position in 2009-2010 Bronwyn was appointed manager of the Dromana branch. Now with the opening of Rosebud, she is heading back to where it all began for her, as manager at Rye. “Of course, it is wonderful for me. We live in Rye. My kids go to school there, and play there sport there, so it really is a great fit,” said Bronwyn. “I spent four years working in Rye before moving to Dromana. There are lots of familiar faces there.” Bronwyn is looking forward to the move for more reasons that just being closer to home. “It is a much bigger branch, with about double the business and customers than Dromana, so it will be a great personal challenge for me,” said Bronwyn. “Also, I have huge shoes to fill replacing Julie in that branch. Having been in Rye for 12 years, she was really tuned into the local community.” Bronwyn wants everybody to know it is business as usual in Rye. “There will still be the same familiar faces. Our customers will still come

in and receive the high level of customer service on a day-to-day basis, which is very important.” Bronwyn is well equipped to look after all your banking needs, both business and personal. “I am here to help, so am looking forward to meeting new people and reacquainting myself with those I dealt with in the past.” Pictures: Barry Irving
