It comes after two reports commissioned by the government and released in July linked the loss of the beach and foreshore to deepening of Port Phillip Heads and South Channel in 2008 during the two-year channel deepening project. The reports – one by environmental consultant Water Technologies of Notting Hill and a CSIRO review of all report before and after dredging – re-

A similar row of rocks was placed on the beach as temporary protection to allow contractors to build the 1000-sandbag seawall in August 2010. The rocks solution is the latest attempt by the government to save Portsea’s once-popular front beach from further erosion.

By Mike Hast THE state government is drawing up plans to place huge black rocks in front of the sandbag wall at Portsea’s front beach.

The CSIRO report stated a change in the local wave conditions was the likely cause of the erosion at Portsea but this could not be measured accurately due to a lack of “long wave records at Portsea beach that predate the erosion event and CDP [channel deepening project]”.

Mixed reception for new-look Sorrento MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has finished streetscape works in Sorrento that it says have improved access for pedestrians and people who use mobility scooters. Nepean Ward councillor Tim Rodgers said the works were part of stage one of the Ocean Beach Rd Plan and cost about $350,000. “The vision was to enhance and provide high-quality public spaces in the shopping centre with a focus on pedestrian linkages and a unified landscape character to respect the coastal qualities and heritage significance of the area,” he said. But one resident said the money would have been better spent upgrading public toilets in George St, which “are in a disgraceful state during summer”. “They are overcrowded and often resemble a building you would find in a third world country,” said the resident, who did not want to be named due to their high-profile position in the community “The shire should not entice people to Sorrento if there are inadequate facilities for their day-to-day needs,” Nepean Ward councillor Hugh Fraser said the shire had been

working with a streetscape committee consisting of representatives from traders, historical society, ratepayers’ association and conservation group. “The input from this group was invaluable in developing ideas and design plans, and has ensured the works reflect the needs of the community,” he said. Cr Rodgers said the new community meeting place was an area where all generations could come together in an open, social space. “It features extensive landscaping, curved timber and metal seats and tables, combined seating/play structure, a play wall with noughts and crosses and an abacus play feature, hopscotch markings, a drinking fountain and a dog tie-up post,” he said. “It includes a number of feature trees and garden beds with indigenous planting. Three drooping sheoaks have being retained and protected. “Other works included raised asphalt platforms to reduce vehicle speeds, right of way for pedestrians, access for people with mobility or vision disabilities, timber bollards and permanent line markings.” Mike Hast

Tightening rules for pets By Keith Platt WITHIN the next four years only dogs and cats licensed for breeding will be able to escape being de-sexed on the Mornington Peninsula. A move to make it mandatory for dogs and cats to be de-sexed is among changes recommended to the shire’s Domestic Animal Management Plan. Neutering all pets is one of the suggestions being recommended to councillors to avoid community concern about the number of unclaimed stray dogs and cats being euthanised. The problem is made worse because most dogs and cats held at the pound are not microchipped or registered, making it difficult, if not impossible, to track down their owners. In a report to council, environment protection and community safety officer Claire Smith said 10 per cent of calls to the shire were pet related. “Hot topics” included aggressive dogs, barking dogs, dogs on beaches, the need for more leash-free areas and calls for rangers to collect nuisance cats trapped in cages supplied by the shire.

MAIN SAIL BAR

Aggressive rejects: Signs at leashfree dog walking areas throughout the Mornington Peninsula make it clear that aggressive dogs are unwelcome. The signs say call 1300 850 600 for help or make a note of the aggressive dog owner’s number plate.

Cases of problem pets outlined by Ms Smith included six reports involving two Staffordshire bull terriers at Sorrento, the most serious of which caused “significant fear and trauma” to two women whose Maltese terriers were attacked. The owner of the attacking dogs

troduced four years ago, thousands of pets remained unregistered. While 26,000 of the shire’s estimated 27,200 dogs were registered, more than 10,000 of its 16,600 cats were not. Ms Smith said dog registrations were increasing but cat registrations had dropped by more than 8 per cent in the past four years. Calculations made using Australian Bureau of Statistics figures showed that 95.2 per cent of dogs in the shire were registered, compared to a “disappointing” 36 per cent of cats. Ms Smith said complaints about dog attacks had dropped by 6 per cent, while enforcement actions by rangers against aggressive dogs had increased 24 per cent. “The reduction in numbers of dog aggression complaints is a pleasing indication of success for the shire’s mix of education and awareness programs, plus enforcement action when appropriate,” Ms Smith stated in her report. Rangers equipped with microchip scanners and iPads were able to quickly identify stray animals and reunite them with their owners.

was eventually fined $2200 plus $5064 costs. In another incident, a “pointer type dog” collided with a cyclist, who spent six days in hospital. The dog’s owners were fined $1600 with $214 costs. They face further costs in separate County Court cases being brought against them by the injured rider for $12,500 damage to his bike and equipment. A “good news” report detailed how rangers were able to track down the owner of a straying Jack Russell terrier, even though it had been microchipped in Germany. Implementation of the revamped Domestic Animal Management Plan may also lead to a crackdown on unlicensed backyard breeders and volunteers circulating photographs and details of cats being held at the pound. Ms Smith said suggested changes to the Domestic Animal Management Plan recognised the need to achieving a “reasonable balance” in issues for pet owners and non-pet owners. While fewer dogs and cats were being impounded since the plan was in-

The proportion of impounded dogs being euthanised had dropped from nearly 17 per cent in 2006/7 to just under 3 per cent last year, which meant 29 dogs and 103 cats were put down. Over the same period, the number of impounded cats being euthanised had also dropped, from 74 per cent to 21 per cent. Between 1 January and 28 May, 455 dogs had been held at the pound and 291 cats, with just nine of the cats being registered. Ms Smith said the dropping number of cat owners registering their pets “indicates a significant change with more cat owners failing to comply with legislation”. She said cats were being de-sexed before being released from the pound. The draft Domestic Animals Management Plan can be viewed at www. mornpen.vic.gov.au and at council offices and libraries.

Tree amigos complete ridgy-didge biolink By Chris Brennan AFTER more than five years and hundreds of hours of back-breaking work by dozens of dedicated volunteers, a wildlife corridor has been cleared along Old Main Creek Rd in Main Ridge. It will enable vulnerable native animals safe passage between the area’s few remaining patches of remnant vegetation. Main Creek Catchment Landcare Group has been working steadily since 2008 to rehabilitate more than two hectares of roadside vegetation along a 1.5-kilometre stretch to create a corridor of indigenous vegetation. More than 100 volunteers assisted during 11 formal working bees, planting more than 650 tube plants and clearing extensive weed growth, the group’s secretary, Bernie Schedvin, said. “Their contributions really made the project possible,” Ms Schedvin said. “This sort of thing can bring a community together. We hope the critters appreciate it too.” Stalwarts from the Main Creek committee, led by the group’s president, Thomas Orr, held additional smaller working bees to deal with the dense build-up of noxious weeds, which included sweet pittosporum, holly, radiata pine seedlings, mirror bush, karamu, blackberry and agapanthus, which were gradually out-competing indigenous bushland species. But the real heavy lifting involved the selective removal of about 50 large radiata pines, which were up to 1.5 metres in width, as well as numerous sweet pittosporum. Ms Schedvin said the non-indigenous species outcompeted native trees, lowering the habitat value of vegetation and resulting in lower biodiversity. The tree were removed by

professional contractors at a cost about $16,000. After removal of these enormous woody weeds, the group set about tidying and preparing the site for revegetation with plants indigenous to the area- trees, shrubs and smaller ground cover species as well as mulching the whole area. The results of their labour will take some years to be properly visible, but new plants should become well established within three years, Ms Schedvin

said. Ecologist Mal Legg said the area was an important habitat for a number of indigenous animal species, including dusky and agile antechinus (marsupial mouse), sugargliders, micro bats, echidnas and host of woodland birds such as yellow robins and whistlers. He said the Mornington Peninsula had experienced the extinction of many species of fauna due to pressures of feral animals such as cats and foxes as well as clearing for housing

and agriculture, and habitat had been destroyed and fragmented. Roadside vegetation, such as that along Old Main Creek Rd, is sometimes the only significant area of natural vegetation in an area and, while not ideal, can provide a vital habitat for fauna and a serve as a link between larger areas of remnant habitat. Ms Schedvin said the committee had been delighted with “the overwhelmingly positive response from local community members, which has made

them feel that all the hours of planning and physical labour have been appreciated”. Funding for the Old Main Creek Rd biolink project was provided by the Port Phillip and Western Port Catchment Management Authority, Envirofund and the federal government’s Caring for Country initiative. For further information on Main Creek Catchment Landcare, email: berniesched@vic.chariot.net.au

Shire swamped with calls for help Riders paid $55-$99 to enter the ride and were encouraged to donate or be sponsored to raise money for the foundation. No part of their entry fee or the shire’s contribution went towards the charity, which received $6500 from ride organiser Cycling Events Downunder. Councillors have been told that the shire is second only to the City of Melbourne among Victorian municipalities when it comes to hosting events and festivals. “These events range from small community gatherings to larger state-

wide and international celebrations, all of which play an important celebratory role in the cultural life of the Mornington Peninsula, and in local community development,” acting team leader of community and special events Luke Phillips stated in a report. He said the chosen events would be backed by the shire for three consecutive years. The events were financed separately from “larger statewide and international celebrations” such as Australia Day, Seniors Week, Children’s Week, Anzac Day and the Pet and Pony Expo.

“Every community, it seems, has something to celebrate if offered the opportunity and the tools with which to create their own event,” Mr Phillips said. “These community activities can help provide the social glue that connects community members together. For some people, these events also help alleviate social isolation and provide safe opportunities for contact with others. “Furthermore, many community events provide low-cost or free family entertainment and activities.”

However, details of grants have been ruled “commercial in confidence” and will not be released to the public, despite the events being run by not-for-profit incorporated community groups.

By Keith Platt MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has been swamped by calls to help finance community events.

Young work hard to find a job By Toni Brient LIKE many of her peers, 18-year-old Kiah Goddard was excited to take a gap year between high school and university. After completing year 12 at Mt Erin College in 2012, the young Bittern resident planned to take a break from her studies and gain experience in the workforce before starting a bachelor degree at Deakin University in 2014. “The reason I took the year off was to get lots of different jobs and see where I wanted to take the management course, because I think it’s such a broad sort of course that you could take it to management in businesses, management in law, or management in industries,” she told The News. But after months of applying for a variety of positions, Kiah’s gap year is nearing its end. While she is now working at Kooyong Vineyard in Red Hill South, she is yet to gain any practical experience in the administrative and management fields. “I wanted to go and work in an office, just to see a box-standard job. You’ve got to work your way up from somewhere, so I thought, if I do something like that and start off there, I can just keep moving along.” But after being rejected for reception and administration roles with small local businesses and bigger companies like Coles and Woolworths, Kiah decided to search for answers. She contacted the businesses that turned her down and asked what they were looking for in a candidate. It seems most were seeking the same

thing: industry experience. “How am I going to get experience without (a job)?” she asked them, but received little feedback. “I had a few phone calls, but nothing concrete. They just told me that I needed to work somewhere else before I applying somewhere like that.” Steve Wright, the CEO of Advance/ Peninsula Training and Employment Program, is not surprised by Kiah’s story. He says the problem is a “vicious cycle” that many young people would be familiar with. “It’s a constant problem. Our youth training programs are basically populated by a lot of those kids who don’t have that experience,” he said. According to a study by Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Learning and Employment Network in January 2013, around 6 per cent of 15 to 19-year-old peninsula residents were looking for work. While almost 20 per cent left school after year 10 or earlier to search for work, less than 14 per cent were employed in full time work. Around 30 per cent were currently employed in part-time roles, and 42 per cent had completed year 12. For school leavers like Kiah who are between studies, undertaking an additional course to increase employment opportunity is often costly and unappealing. She said youth employment services she looked into appeared to be strongly geared towards providing training rather than helping young people find an actual job. “They’re very sort of, we’ll train

you and then you can find a job by yourself. But I’ll be going to uni and I don’t want to do any training in my gap year.” Mr Wright said that while gaining a qualification was useful, it was not the only way to obtain employment. “The big ticket items are reliability,

attitude, and presentation,” he said. Kiah thinks young people are largely overlooked because it is assumed they don’t have these qualities. “I think businesses are using experience as sort of a lever to deter young people,” she said. “I think young people have a stereotype as being

lazy, not showing up to work and being on the phone all the time. And I think, instead of just saying ‘We’re not looking for someone young’, they’re actually just saying ‘Well, you haven’t got enough experience’.” Mr Wright said vocational-based work experience and voluntary work placements were “critical” in developing skills and preparing young people for the workforce. Voluntary work was a good way to demonstrate skills to a prospective employer and gain industry experience and references. “There is a fairly big component of work experience that we give our trainees,” he said. “One of the big pieces of advice I give to young people is to go out and do some voluntary work and put that on your resume.” Kiah volunteered at community radio station RPP FM during high school and intends to complete unpaid work placements and internships while studying for her bachelor of management course. But, she is still apprehensive about beginning the course without having gained practical experience. “I’m at a loss because I’m going to uni for something that I don’t even know if I’m going to like.” She would like to see employers change the way they viewed prospective employees, especially those in younger age groups. “Judge someone on their own merit; actually look into them, give them a phone call and talk to them. It’s not hard. I would just like to see (employers) take people at face value.”

Safe driver reward scheme cut HUNDREDS of thousands of Victorian drivers will pay more for licences, with the state government’s VicRoads restricting safe driver discounts. From mid-July, only drivers under 26 are eligible for a 25 per cent saving. Eastern Victoria Region MP Johan Scheffer said responsible Mornington Peninsula motorists faced higher fees when renewing licences. Mr Scheffer said the state government had made significant changes to the VicRoads Safe Driver Scheme – introduced by the former Labor Government in 2006 – that rewards safe drivers with a 25 per cent discount on licence renewal fees if they have not incurred demerit points or committed other road safety offences. He said between January 2006 and February 2009, 45.6 per cent of Victorian drivers (about 603,600) who renewed their licence received a discount. “Premier Denis Napthine claimed motorists would save $20 million by getting rid of registration stickers, but days later he hit them with a $48.7 million bill with changes to the reward scheme,” Mr Scheffer said. “The government is punishing safe, responsible drivers by significantly

slashing eligibility requirements for the discount to those aged 26 and under. “Higher licence fees will hurt pensioners. New licence-holders who apply for a 10-year licence won’t be eligible for the discount.” The MP said the changes would cost every motorist aged over 26 an extra $61.50 for a 10-year licence renewal and $17.90 for a three-year licence renewal. “If you are 18 and apply for a 10year licence, you will not be eligible for the discount when it is time to renew your licence,” he said. VicRoads’ director of vehicle and road user behaviour James Holgate reportedly said the discount wasn’t providing much benefit. “Half the drivers on the road got it, so it was a far hit on revenue,” he told a Melbourne radio station. Mr Holgate said the savings would go to the graduated licensing system for young drivers and would provide a better outcome for road safety. Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews said the government’s decision to cut the program was “tricky”, “mean” and “shortsighted”. Mike Hast

It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services. GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year. F•S•A/DPC0018

Easy as ABC for MP’s campaign

Talking art: Artist Cherie Leeden is helping run next month’s forum about art and culture on the Mornington Peninsula.

Art becomes a forum topic IMAGINATION, hopes and dreams may all come to the fore next month when artists gather in Mornington for the ARTALK: let’s talk art forum. Mornington Peninsula-based artists have been invited to attend the forum “which will bring together key stakeholders in the peninsula’s visual arts scene”. Geoff Carson, Mornington Peninsula Shire’s libraries arts and culture manager sees the forum as “an opportunity to strengthen connections between artists, community and the shire”. Artist Mike Green, who will speak about life as a professional artist, migrated from New Zealand to Australia in 1945 and has lived and travelled overseas. He has participated in group exhibitions and well as holding his own exhibitions in Australia and the United States. Mr Carson will talk about the shire’s arts and culture strategy, A Creative Peninsula, and outline the long-term plan for the development

of arts and culture across the peninsula between now and 2015. Lynda Newton, of Arts & Cultural Services Australia, will explain the Arts & Cultural Facilities Audit & Development Project. The shire is assessing arts and culture facilities on the peninsula and artists at the forum will be invited to say what they need. “ARTALK complements the shire’s approach to arts and culture – it’s about working in partnership with local communities and arts sectors to ensure recognition of the sector, and that arts and culture continues to have a positive influence on people’s lives and our shire as a whole,” Mr Carson said. ARTALK: let’s talk art forum runs midday4pm on Sunday 8 September at Mornington Park Pavilion. The $15 a person entry includes lunch. For more information contact Cherie Leeden at: cherieleeden@gmail.com or call 0407 362 208.

By Toni Brient FLINDERS federal MP Greg Hunt kicked off the election campaign with two high-profile media appearances on Monday. Less than 24 hours after Prime Minister Kevin Rudd set the election for 7 September, the Liberal frontbencher appeared on the ABC’s Melbourne radio (774 AM) breakfast program. That night, he was on the panel of the ABC’s national current affairs program Q&A. Mr Hunt, who has held Flinders since 2001, and is the Opposition’s spokesman for environment and climate action, spoke on a range of issues including the economy and asylum seekers. Interviewed by radio host Jon Faine on 774, Mr Hunt spoke about the dire circumstances surrounding asylum seekers drowning in vessels at sea while attempting to reach Australia. “We’ve lost at least 1100 souls, 1100 lives. That is a human catastrophe of the most extraordinary proportions.” Mr Hunt delivered a scathing assessment of Mr Rudd, saying he was unfit to tackle the issue. He accused Mr Rudd of being untrustworthy, saying a Coalition government was in a better position to manage the nation. Responding to an audience member’s question on Q&A about whether Tony Abbott could engage with young people the way Kevin Rudd has been seen to do, Mr Hunt suggested young people were not swayed by Mr Rudd’s social media activity on platforms like Facebook and Twitter. “He is the fake tan of Australian politics and it washes off overnight. Young people are onto him because they know they want jobs in the future and they don’t want to have debt,” Mr Hunt said. He said the next generation was “deeply switched on about long-term issues”. “Yes, they are on Twitter and they are engaged in social media,” he told Q&A’s Sydney audience, “but at the end of the day this is such a smart generation and they know that they want substance and things that will last. They care about the long term and the things that they talk about are jobs and debt.” According to Mr Hunt, the Coalition had a “clear national plan” to fix what he said was La-

bor’s “$30 billion debt”. The current government had delivered “eight consecutive [budget] deficits”, and a Coalition government would “live within our means” to return the budget to surplus. “Australia started the global financial crisis two laps in front of everybody else. We are now half a lap in front.” While his media appearances made no reference to local initiatives on the Mornington Peninsula, Mr Hunt issued a media release early on Monday detailing his election platform for the Flinders electorate, much of which discussed initiatives under state and local government control. Mr Hunt pledged to “ensure the community’s voice is heard on the Arthurs Seat tip issue” and “secure aquatic centres for Rosebud and Phillip Island”, neither of which directly involve federal government. The planning laws for these projects are governed by local government, with some overlap at state level for environmental regulation. The list also included law and order, with plans to “improve community safety at Hastings” and “complete work on a 24-hour police station for Somerville, Baxter and Pearcedale”. The station will be built in Somerville on the corner of Coolart Rd and Eramosa Rd West It is unclear what contribution Mr Hunt would make to the projects, given the state government earlier this year promised to construct a 24-hour police station in Somerville, setting aside $12 million in its 2013-14 budget for this and other police stations across the state. Mr Hunt’s other initiatives include prioritising high-speed broadband for peninsula residents and securing funds for the Coalition’s so-called Green Army, which seeks to engage young people in conservation work. Mr Hunt is being challenged by Labor candidate Josh Sinclair and the Greens’ Martin Rush in the seat of Flinders, where he has a 9.1 per cent margin according to ABC polling data. At the 2010 election, Mr Hunt gained 54.3 per cent of the primary vote, which translated to 59.1 per cent after distribution of preferences. See “Greens candidate slams tip” on Page 16.

NEWS DESK Church changes: An architect’s impression of the renovations and extensions planned for the historic St Andrew’s church site in Lyons St, Rye.

Church appeals for building money A BUILDING appeal is about to be launched to raise $650,000 to extend and improve the hall and offices at St Andrew’s Church in Rye. If successful, the money will be used to complete the first stage of a nearly $1 million plan, which includes extending the church. St Andrew’s, in Lyons St, is the administrative centre for the Anglican Parish of Sorrento and Rye. Both St Andrew’s and St John’s at Sorrento are listed by the National Trust, although all running and maintenance costs are met by the church. “We are launching this parish centre building appeal because our current hall, office space, kitchen and toilets at St Andrew’s are totally inadequate for parish and community needs,” building committee convenor Shirley Goldsworthy said. “As St Andrew’s is a local historic landmark, we wish to maintain its heritage. In 1855 it was first

built by the Church of England and called the Tootgarook Common School No 623. “In those early days it was also a civic centre and today it is still a community centre where church volunteers provide outreach programs such as play groups with music and storytelling. “A Friday mental health group is organised where a meal and social activities are provided. A weekly painting group is available with local artist Jim Uhe. Food for the disadvantaged is collected and distributed to Food For All in Rosebud.” On the first Sunday of each month a 4pm “messy church” was held for children and adults, including craft, children’s worship and a shared meal. An informal family service is held on the third Sunday each month at 10.30am. Ms Goldsworthy said the committee had sent 600 letters about the building plans to businesses and

families who may have had involvement with the church. “They may be people who are descended from the pioneers, or worked on the building, or were married or baptised in one of our historic churches, or attended services.” Ms Goldsworthy said the upgrade was “fitting for today’s standards” and would provide a better venue for special events. The second stage of the renovation and refurbishment included a $270,000 extension of the church. Plans about to be submitted to Mornington Peninsula Shire included both stages. Ms Goldsworthy said the public and anyone connected to the church could attend the building appeal launch at 2.30pm on Sunday 25 August at Rye Primary School, opposite St Andrew’s in Lyons St, Rye.

Portsea rocks Continued from Page 1

“It is conceivable that the CDP may have increased the height of waves impacting the beach at Portsea and therefore some degree of attribution to the CDP is possible,” the CSIRO stated It called for additional wave data to be collected at Portsea. Nepean MP Martin Dixon said “further monitoring of wave characteristics will be carried out over the next 12 months”. “The Department of Environment and Primary Industries is hopeful that the data from this offshore monitoring will help identify the root cause of the increased swell at Portsea and will inform a long-term approach to successfully restoring the beach,” Mr Dixon said. Southern peninsula councillor Tim Rodgers said he was “filthy” when told about the rocks. “It’s another nail in the coffin of Portsea beach,” he said. “The money would be better spent on the government’s proposed extra monitoring.” He said the beach would not return to normal unless the wave action could be stopped or deflected. Cr Rodgers said one sandbag in the middle of the wall had been damaged. Nepean Ratepayers Association president Colin Watson said the government was about to choose a company to programme wave modelling buoys. The seawall on the western side of the pier would be repaired, he said. Mr Watson along with Cr Rodgers and Portsea residents lobbied the government to commission the Water Technologies report.

Councils pressured to help business

Supporting change: Frankston MP Geoff Shaw, left, and Hastings MP Neale Burgess have backed recommendations to force more cooperation between business and local government.

By Keith Platt COUNCILLORS in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula are likely to come under state government pressure to give more help to businesses. Legislative changes may also make it easier for commercial tenants to vote. The need to increase support for business at a municipal level is strongly recommended in a report by the Economic Development and Infrastructure Committee, led by Hastings MP Neale Burgess. The committee was formed in 2012 but gained its first burst of publicity last month when it was revealed its inquiries included a trip to Europe, taking in Manchester, London, Amsterdam and Berlin. Frankston MP Geoff Shaw – under investigation by the police and another government committee for allegedly misusing his taxpayer-funded vehicle – and Mr Burgess were photographed in a Manchester restaurant. The committee released its report at the end of July and Mr Shaw issued a news release summarising some of its main findings on 1 August. As chair of the committee, the government has also issued a news release quoting Mr Burgess, although as of last Friday it had not been emailed to this newspaper and was not on his website. The government release said the committee “examined the range of economic development initiatives being carried out in Victoria and how all levels of government interact with businesses and communities to achieve strong local economies�. It quoted Mr Burgess saying “the report aims to strengthen the Victorian economy by improving the way all levels of government engage in economic development strategies�. “Although some councils are performing well when it comes to economic development, it was clear that many don’t consider it a priority,� Mr Burgess stated. “Local councils are seen by many businesses as

another level of red tape, rather than an avenue for support services.� Among the report’s 43 recommendations is one calling for legislation to make it a “statutory obligation for economic development to be a priority of the Municipal Association of Victoria�. The committee said it was concerned that none of the MAV’s eight committees related specifically to economic development. During its deliberations, the committee was told by Frankston Council CEO Dennis Hovenden that community satisfaction surveys showed people believed economic development programs run by local government “have in the past been poor�. “They are critical of the performance because, in part, they do not understand the importance of why local government is involved in economic development...� The report said the “timid approach� toward economic development by Victorian councils was in “stark contrast to the robust and focused approach� of Manchester and London. Mr Shaw said he supported all 43 of the committee’s recommendations. “I am proud to have been involved with the development of this report, which has a focus on the need for stronger support for our local businesses,� he said. “It is also worth noting that while some local councils are performing well when it comes to economic development, many do not consider it a priority. “As a business owner and manager for 20 years in Frankston and now as the local member for Frankston, I would like to see the benefit of these recommendations acted upon so that our local businesses receive the encouragement and support they deserve.� The report is at www.parliament.vic.gov.au/ edic

Quarry landfill

Aquatic centre name

I REFER to Peninsula Waste Management’s halfpage advertisement headed “The Old Pioneer Quarry Site At Dromana” in the most recent issue of The News (page 29, 25/7/13). The sub-heading “No practical long-term alternatives” and copy following are totally misleading. Landfill is not a long-term sustainable solution to waste. This is fact. Governments and cities around the world recognise this and are taking steps to divert waste away from landfill. Cities such as San Francisco and Seattle have set targets of zero waste to landfill by 2020. Victorian government media releases in 2012 and 2013 from Environment Minister Ryan Smith indicate the government also recognises the need to live sustainably. The government is providing funds for programs to divert food scraps from landfill into nutrient-rich compost. Suppliers of goods will need to ensure in the future that packaging materials used are all recyclable. We the community of the Mornington Peninsula need to wake up and stop buying products that are packaged in materials that can’t be recycled. If possible, compost food scraps. If not, ask Mornington Peninsula Shire to implement collection of food scraps in conjunction with green organic matter. Live sustainably, minimise your carbon footprint. There is a real alternative to landfill. Graeme King, Arthurs Seat

IT is interesting to note Frankston Council has named its new swimming pool complex using the name “Peninsula” (“City takes ‘peninsula’ for pool name”, The News, 25/7/13). It is also interesting the council refrained from using the word Frankston in the name to avoid a rude acronym, but the initials for Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre (PARC) in reverse are a worry. Tony Lovelock, Rosebud

MRS Emu is furious. The scales have dropped from her eyes with a resounding clang. She has been duped, deceived and double-dealt, she hisses at her spouse. And all for a supposed saving at the fuel bowser. Emu was lying low until the storm passed, but she has tracked him down. “All these months,” she tells her cowering spouse in strangled tones, far more in anger than in sorrow, “I have been shopping at (supermarket name deleted) so I can get our fuel cheaper with their discount dockets. “Only to find we have been duped!” Her voice rises in a startling crescendo on the last word. Glasses rattle on the shelves. “We?” Emu notes he has been dragged into the fray. “The supermarket (which she will never patronise again, at least until next week) charges more for other items on its shelves to cover the cost of the fuel discount. I’ve been duped!” she thunders, a woman dangerously scorned. A glass topples. Any supermarket manager would be in terminal peril were they to enter Chez Emu at this moment. Emu decides this is not the time to remind her of the warnings he has been gently issuing for months about free-market retail practices – a sort-of Newton’s First Law of Retailing, which is that any price cutting must be accompanied by an equal and opposite price increase. An unequal price increase can be even more profitable than one that achieves a mere price balance, muses Emu after his spouse has gone off, spluttering and muttering, to scrutinise her supermarket receipt and decide where she will now shop. He has been listening to radio, hearing competition watchdog concerns – how quickly they become aware of dodgy practices – that this fuel discounting is endangering non-discounting supermarkets and independent fuel stations. Emu sets great store in caveat emptor – let the buyer beware – in his commercial dealings, knowing the increased caveatii facing incautious

emptorii in modern capitalism. He had heard a caller to talkback radio, responding to the competition watchdog’s concerns, relate his lucky escape from a parsnip price rort at his supermarket. Explaining how the emporium probably clawed back the fuel discount, the caller told of parsnips on its shelves priced at $11.99 a kilo. A bit high for a root vegetable, he thought. Later, investigating the wares of the shopping centre’s nearby greengrocer, he found the same humble vegetable, delicious when roasted with lamb, at a mere $3.99 a kilo. Suddenly interested, Emu sauntered to the family jalopy and plucked a receipt from the floor. Fifty dollars had bought 34.51 litres of distillate at 144.9 cents a litre. Discount: 4 cents a litre, or $1.38, rounded up to $1.40. Emu then calculated parsnips at $11.99 a kilo as opposed to $3.99 a kilo. The supermarket parsnips were $8 dearer. Deduct the $1.40 discount from that $8, and the supermarket’s fuel price discount has actually cost Mr Emu – or “we”, as she put it – a not inconsiderable $6.60. Emu also pondered the subsidy supermarkets were getting from shoppers who did not have a car. And what would happen to fuel discounts if independent fuel retailers were put out of business by the supermarket “competition”. You can take Emu’s word on the maths; no caveat necessary. His razor-edged actuarial mind surpasses that of many an accountant and bookkeeper in the matter of domestic management. But he decides to let Mrs Emu cool down before explaining it to her. Best to let battlefield smoke clear before collecting the wounded.

Portsea erosion REGARDING your article “Dredging caused beach loss”, (The News, 11/07/13), I would like to advise of further activity between Nepean Ratepayers Association and the Department of Environment and Primary Industries. On 19 July, another meeting, chaired by me, was held at Portsea with representatives of DEPI, a representative of Nepean MP Martin Dixon’s office, a representative of Mornington Peninsula Shire and four ratepayers association members. Plans are being put in place to further monitor the wave pattern now being experienced at Portsea front beach. Additional data gathered will hopefully assist us find out as best we can what is happening with wave patterns off Portsea and determine the best options for the future in managing the foreshore. The process will take several months using world-class, state-of-the-art scientific modelling. In the interim, maintenance will be carried out on the sandbags and surrounding areas at the beach. I am very pleased with the cooperation and understanding we have experiencing with DEPI. Both parties are striving to find a solution to the problem. The ultimate goal is to find the problem, then a solution and eventually regenerate the beach. Colin Watson, president, Nepean Ratepayers Association

Boating zones OUR family has been a member of Safety Beach Sailing Club for many years and we wholeheartedly support [club commodore] Ross Martin’s idea of creating specific zones for specific activities (Letters, The News, 25/7/13). One Sunday last summer we counted 48 PWCs [jet skis] in and around the junior yacht school boats and close to the shoreline. On the Monday we had TV news helicopters with Environment Protection Authority officers circling constantly. They were supposed to be viewing an algal bloom at the mouth of Tassells Creek, the entrance to Martha Cove, and well out into Port Phillip. This was not an algal bloom but oil on the surface caused by the many PWCs from the day before. I have photographs and a news article about this. Can we please have some action before next summer? Martin Dixon, please do what you promise and “protect the peninsula”. All beach users including young children, sailors young and old, and swimmers would say a big thank you for the return of clean beaches.

JPs ease workload JUSTICES of the Peace at police station signing centres on the Mornington Peninsula and in Frankston and Carrum Downs can witness documents destined for the Victorian Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. They also can witness affidavits, statutory declarations, power of attorney documents and wills. Ian Lyons of the Mornington Peninsula branch of Royal Victorian Association of Honorary Justices said JPs are authorised to witness international documents. “The program reduces the administrative burden on police at signing centres,” he said. “The free service is mostly offered by senior citizens who have retired from the workforce and have been sworn into the office of JP by the Chief Magistrate.” Signing centres are at these police stations: Mornington – Monday 11am-2pm and Thursday 11am-2pm. Rosebud – Thursday 11am-2pm. Hastings – Wednesday 5-7pm. Frankston – Monday to Friday 10am-3pm and Thursday 4.30-6.30pm. Carrum Downs – Tuesday 5-7pm.

0429 161 164 About 40 warships and 20 tall ships will participate. Tall Ships Victoria president Peter Harris, who is also in charge of the restoration of Alma Doepel at Victoria Harbour in Melbourne, said tall ships from the northern hemisphere rarely visit Australia. Most of the vessels sailing to Australia are undertaking world voyages, visiting Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, Antarctica and the Americas. Stephen Moss, president of the Australian Sail Training Association said, it would be the largest gathering of tall ships in Australia and New Zealand for a generation.

“This will help to establish a vision of sail training in Australia and convey the excitement, challenge and romance of tall ship sailing to millions of young Australians,â€? he said. The Melbourne festival is a joint venture of Tall Ships Victoria, Seaworks Foundation, Royal Yacht Club of Victoria, the Victorian sailing community and Hobsons Bay City Council. At least five ships will be berthed at Seaworks. ď Ž For more information, visit Tall Ships Victoria’s website www.tallshipsvictoria.org www.melbournetallships2013.yachting.org.au www.seaworks.com.au For more information on how to join a voyage, visit www.tallshipfestival2013.com

Theft reports up as drivers open door for thieves – police A SPATE of thefts from cars has hit Mt Martha, prompting police to issue a warning to residents to ensure their vehicles are properly locked and valuables not left on display.

By Mike Hast EIGHT tall ships sail into Port Phillip in early September for the Melbourne International Tall Ship Festival. Mornington Peninsula residents will have the best seats in the house as the ships enter The Heads and sail up the South Channel, turning toward Melbourne at Hovell Pile just a few hundred metres off the end of Rosebud pier. It will be the largest fleet of tall ships to visit Melbourne since the bicentenary in 1988. Lord Nelson will be first to arrive on 6 September after sailing from the United Kingdom via Fremantle to the festival site at Williamstown. She will be followed next day by three Dutch ships – Europa, Oosterschelde and Tecla – from the Netherlands via Fremantle and Adelaide. On 8 September, KRI Dewaruci arrives from Indonesia via Fremantle, Young Endeavour from Sydney and Windeward Bound from Hobart, to be joined next day by Soren Larsen from Sydney. They will be joined by Melbourne-based Enterprize. The fleet leaves Melbourne for festivals in Hobart, Sydney and Auckland at 10am on Saturday 14 September and is expected to anchor overnight off Capel Sound between Rosebud West and Tootgarook before sailing through The Heads at high tide on Sunday 15. Hundreds of modern yachts and motor vessels are expected to accompany the ships on arrival and departure. Some ships are selling berths on the voyage to Melbourne and there will be day trips on Thursday 12 September. David Wharington, a peninsula resident and founding member of Tall Ships Victoria, said Lord Nelson would likely attract the most attention as it was designed to be sailed by people with disabilities. “Usually about half the crew have disabilities. Lord Nelson has several innovations to cater for this. For example, the steering compass makes a sound so that completely blind people can steer. The bowsprit is wide enough to take a wheelchair,� he said. The genesis of the Melbourne festival as well as similar events between July and October in Fremantle, Adelaide, Hobart, Sydney and Auckland was when the Royal Australian Navy invited 50 nations to send warships and tall ship to Sydney for the International Fleet Review in October to commemorate the centenary of the first entry of the RAN’s fleet into Sydney.

Greens candidate slams tip By Mike Hast RETIRED pharmacologist Dr Martin Rush is the Australian Greens candidate for Flinders at the 7 September election. Dr Rush (pictured) was a last-minute candidate after Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced the election date on Sunday. The Greens man wasted no time commenting on peninsula issues, slamming the proposed rubbish tip on the Arthurs Seat escarpment at Dromana. Dr Rush said he was “particularly concerned about the proposed development of the rubbish tip adjacent to Arthurs Seat State Park, the future of Hastings as a port and its impact on Western Port wetlands and marine sanctuaries, the despoilment of the Tootgarook Swamp by inappropriate development, and the general running down of public health, education and public transport services by out-of-touch governments at both state and federal levels”. “The Greens’ recent success in state and local elections indicates voters are looking for a political party that will represent the community, stand up for what’s right, and not be influenced by developers, industry or other unrepresentative pressure groups, at the expense of the ordinary person,” he said. “Many federal issues require a Greens member of parliament to be actively in there representing Flinders voters, but one issue particularly stands out – the Greens strongly support more than 20,000 people opposing the tip planned for Dromana. “The Greens want clean air, clean water and a healthy environment. The Greens federal waste management policy is clear – processes should adopt a zero waste goal to conserve natural resources for future generations, avoid the build-up of toxic and noxious substances, conserve water and achieve deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions.” He said the proposal for a rubbish tip in the

former Pioneer quarry was “a poorly conceived plan and the very real threat to the pristine environment that the Mornington Peninsula enjoys”. “The quarry should never have been listed as a site for a future tip. “The proposed tip is completely inappropriate against all waste management principles. Among many problems, it has no recycling facility, has a high risk of polluting the state park, air, groundwater and Port Phillip itself, is in a high fire danger area and is in an area with threatened native flora and fauna. “Technologies are now available and are being used that render tips such as this redundant. “The Greens policy is the most forward-thinking political strategy on this issue. “We believe that: 1. Avoiding, reducing, reusing and recycling waste is integral to effective waste management and to achieving zero waste. 2. Waste should be treated as a resource and reused in a way that achieves the maximum economic and environmental benefit. 3. The full social, environmental and economic costs must be measured and factored in to decisions about creating, managing and disposing of waste.

4. The transportation of hazardous waste must be minimised, and the Australian community must be fully informed about its location, disposal and transportation. 5. Manufacturers, distributors and retailers should be required to adopt extended producer responsibility, taking financial and/or physical responsibility for a product at the end of its life.” The father of two and grandfather of four stood in the state election in 2010 in Mornington electorate, up against the Liberal Party’s sitting MP David Morris and the ALP’s James Dooley, now a Frankston councillor. Mr Rush had less than four weeks to campaign in Mornington as the Greens were unable to find a candidate. Dr Rush is taking on incumbent Greg Hunt, the Opposition’s spokesman on the environment and climate action, and Labor’s Joshua Sinclair. The Greens man has a PhD in pharmacology and is a life member and fellow of the Institute of Public Administration, Victoria. He lives in Mornington and is a member of several community groups including environment and historical groups and a foreshore restoration group. Dr Rush said his passions were “ethical politics, the economy, the environment and singing with choral group Mornington Musicale”. A long-standing member of the Greens, Dr Rush is on the party’s state council, convenor of the disputes panel and a member of the Greens’ constitutional review panel. He said the issues that inspired him to stand included “local community influence in environmental planning processes; education being given top priority for our children’s future; better public transport services for all; hospitals and community health services being accessible and affordable; and humane approaches to refugee assessment and resettlement”.

EPA meeting for quarry tip SAFETY Beach Sailing Club and Community Centre will be packed to the rafters on Wednesday night for the Environment Protection Authority’s conference to discuss the proposed rubbish tip at Dromana. More than 850 people have objected to the Peninsula Waste Management proposal but not all are expected to speak. The conference runs from 6.30-9pm at the centre on Marine Parade. Tim Eaton, the EPA’s manager of development assessments, said the meeting would “enhance understanding of the proposal and any issues and concerns from all perspectives”. He said the EPA would answer questions about the policies and process affecting the decision on the works approval. “Submitters will highlight key concerns and questions about the application and raise additional matters relevant to EPA’s assessment.” Peninsula Waste Management executives Vince Latham and David Maltby would clarify details of the proposed works and “explain how the concerns may be addressed”. The meeting will be chaired by independent facilitator Bruce Turner with support from Kimbra White. Late last month the EPA asked Peninsula Waste Management to provide additional information for 26 areas of concerns in its works approval application including ground water, leachate pumping, noise, fire management, air quality, the quarry liner, the tip’s impact on Sheepwash Creek (which runs into Port Phillip at Safety Beach), impact on flora and fauna, landfill gas and asbestos.

FEATURE PROPERTY

True statement of style STUNNINGLY stylish, this gorgeous home is set on a landscaped, 2000-square metre allotment in Peninsula Sands Estate. With class to spare, the smooth lines and contemporary feel of the property will resonate with all who inspect. A flowing open-plan design seamlessly integrates indoor and outdoor living, with all rooms offering an enticing glimpse of outdoors where landscaped gardens and a superb in-ground pool await. The living space is impressive – there are a host of rooms that will easily cater for any family dynamic. A separate study is on the right as you enter, and either side of the wide, tiled hallway is a formal lounge and potentially a formal dining room or games room. For zoned living, the front section of the home can be closed off from the larger family area and kitchen. High ceilings accentuate the sense of space and this complements the large kitchen perfectly. There is plenty of bench and cupboard space, and stainless-steel appliances include a wall oven. From the adjoining lounge you step out to the undercover patio surrounded by landscaped gardens – your own private blue lagoon. At the top of the upstairs landing is a rumpus room, perfect for a parent’s retreat or library, Branching off are four bedrooms, including the main bedroom with ensuite and spa. Other bedrooms have built-in robes and share the main bathroom. Complete with a double garage, monitored alarm system and water tanks, this wonderful home is in a peaceful location away from town but still handy to shops and schools as well as easy freeway access for commuters.

Archie’s school rules SOCCEROO Archie Thompson loves taking his own children to soccer training and weekend matches. He’s now using his football knowledge to develop a program aimed at promoting soccer’s fun and enjoyment to other youngsters. He was at Padua College in Mornington on Friday promoting his Archie Thompson School of Soccer, which is aimed at teenagers who are already playing at school or a club, or those keen to give soccer a try. “I have often been approached to be part of holiday and after-school soccer programs, although I have never found the one that really fitted the way I thought it could be done,” he said. “The game is bigger and better than that and I really wanted to put together something that was a terrific experience for the kids involved.” The three-day program sees training and inspiration sessions from some of Australia’s top players, including Matilda’s captain Melissa Barbieri. “I was keen to get started; hopefully we can find plenty of young people who are keen to get on-board or even get started with us,” Thompson said. The soccer camp will be held at Padua College in the second week of the spring school holidays, 1-3 October. For details and registrations, go to www.schoolofsoccer.com.au or email admin@schoolofsoccer.com.au On the ball: Soccer champion Archie Thompson shows his heading style to Padua College students.

India Jones’ emergency crusade By Chris Brennan INDIA Jones is on a crusade – the Monash University biomedical science student is giving time to help at Frankston Hospital’s emergency department. In her role as a hospital volunteer, Ms Jones helps members of the community through what is usually a time of considerable distress, providing practical and emotional support to patients and their families attending the hospital’s busy emergency department. However, as a young person and aspiring doctor, the 21-year-old is somewhat unusual among the many members of the community volunteering through Peninsula Health’s Assistance and Care in Emergency (ACE) program, with most tending to be from older generations. Peninsula Health has more than 800 volunteers involved in a wide range of programs in the organisation. Many are in the ACE program at Frankston Hospital. Only 10 are aged under 25. Ms Jones said she had been thinking about how best to give back to the community and hopes her efforts will encourage other young people to do likewise. “All my friends have volunteered or contributed to their community at some point, so I thought it was my turn,” she said. “There are many young people volunteering for a wide range of organisations these days – we are a socially and environmentally conscious generation who wants to give back. However, people often go to the larger, well-known organisations.

Cheeky corellas light up Emergency ACE: India Jones is paving the way for young volunteers.

“Not that there is anything wrong with that, but I wanted to give back to a smaller, local organisation. Frankston Hospital is perfect for me being just down the road.” With a keen interest in cardiology and obstetrics, Ms Jones plans to further her studies and become a doctor, and said the experience she had gained volunteering in the hospital was highly valuable. “Being in a hospital setting has given me the opportunity to gain some hands-on experience and to witness how things actually run in a hospital,” she said. But gaining experience was certainly not the main reason for her choosing to volunteer. “It’s really rewarding to be able to sit with people during their time of need and distress. Sometimes a friendly face and someone to talk

with can make all the difference.” Peninsula Health’s community participation program manager Elaine Hillis said the role played by volunteers in the organisation was vital and she hoped the example set by India Jones would inspire other young people to consider ways they could help the community. “India is a great ambassador, raising the profile of the ACE program,” Ms Hillis said. “Peninsula Health is privileged to have such a diversity of volunteers in so many different roles, all bringing their individual skill and experience. “Consumers and carers who use Frankston and Rosebud emergency departments benefit from the invaluable emotional and practical support provided by the volunteers on a daily basis.”

WITH its distinctive baby-like cry and playful nature, the little corella (Cacatua sanguinea) can be heard and seen in large numbers all over the Mornington Peninsula. Large flocks are often seen grazing on nature strips or filling gum trees with their noisy antics. One place you don’t often see these comical parrots is in a traffic light. A pair of the pink and white birds was spotted canoodling in the amber section of the traffic lights at the entrance to Bunnings opposite Mornington Secondary College on the Nepean Highway in Mornington last week. They played in and around the lights for about 20 minutes, appearing to be testing each of the three different coloured lights. They eventually settled on the amber light. Words and picture: Yanni

Mums Rate The Bays Hospital Australia’s Best Private Maternity Care Medibank Private released the results of it’s annual national survey into Maternity hospital experiences in May this year. The Medibank Private Maternity Experience Index evaluated the experiences of over 1,500 patients who have given birth in private hospitals across Australia, allowing parents to rate hospital performance, environment, staff and support throughout pregnancy, birth and early parenting.

The Bays has been an Accredited Baby Friendly Hospital since 1998 The Bays is the only Private hospital in Victoria with BFHI status (2013) What is Baby Friendly? “Best practice care for all mothers” Why Baby Friendly? Gives all babies the best start in life” The Baby Friendly Health Initiative (BFHI) was developed jointly by the World Health Organisation and UNICEF in 1991. The initiative is a global effort for improving infant health by supporting mothers to breastfeed their babies. BFHI standards also ensure that a mother undecided about breastfeeding is provided with information and options, and encouraged to make an informed decision for herself and her baby. The Bays Hospital is one of those organisations committed to the care of women and their babies in the community.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Improvements to come for Mornington jetty, local overhaul planned Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 9 August 1913. THE contract for extensive improvements to the Mornington jetty, costing about £1000, by the Public Works Department, is in the hands of Mr S. Patience, of Footscray. The local jetty is undergoing a thorough overhaul, a new parapet or breakwater being constructed on the outside of existing decayed timber for 90 feet, 47 new piles driven in line, and 9 new piles to strengthen the main structure, firmly held with iron tie rods. Nine double rows of new transverse beams are being placed under planking, which is also to be renovated. The work includes the extension of the existing stone and concrete wall and parapet 4ft 6in in cement at inner end of new timber breakwater, and 60 cubic yards of stone and rubble to make the wall secure. *** A SIGN of future developments is the starting of a Progress Association at Crib Point. The first thing they will ask for will be wharf accommodation, and the future of Crib Point as a deep sea port is only challenged by the fact that the Naval authorities have not enough room on Han’s Inlet, but by developing the space between Coolan Island and Crib Point, a large deep sheltered area could be obtained, which is, in view of the fact that Westernport will be the chief naval base of Australasia, absolutely necessary in the opinion of experts. *** E. C. HAMMOND’S advertisement, on page 4, tells how to guard against small pox, after vaccination.

*** THE secretary of the Frankston Tennis Club acknowledges with thanks a donation of £1 1s from Mr A. D. Box towards the Club funds. *** THERE was a splendid attendance at the Picture Show held in the Mechanics’ Institute, Mornington, on Wednesday night last, in aid of the Catholic Church debt. *** ON Sunday afternoon last, Mr W. Hailes received a double dislocation of the elbow, caused by falling from a see-saw. His injuries were attended to by Dr Somers, and he is now doing well. *** BY 12 votes to 9, the offer of a barrel of beer for inmates of Braintree Workhouse, Essex, was declined, and for the first time for many years, the paupers had no beer with their Christmas dinner. Most Boards of Guardians now adopt this wise course. *** AT the recent departmental examinations at Mornington State School, the following pupils received certificates:Merit – Donald Hutchins, Albert Coxhell, and Winnie Bradford. Qualifying Certificates – Percy Doherty, Keith Dreyor, Alex Hutchins, Ronald Walker, Daisy Swann, and Josephine Pitchford. *** AT a combined meeting of the Mornington Loyal Celebration League and delegates from the State Schools committees, it was decided on Tuesday night last that all arrangements for the trip to the Zoo, which is to take place next November, be left in the hands of the following delegates:- Mornington

State School, Messrs Blair and Ford; Moorooduc State School, Messrs

Sanders and Male; Osborne, Messrs Sherlock and Wilson; L.C.L., Messrs Ferber and Jenkins. *** MESSRS A. Scott and Co. held their usual monthly market at Tanti on Monday last, when there was an average yarding of cattle, a good attendance of buyers, and a spirited demand for all classes. Milkers to £7 5s; springers to £7 7s 6d; backward springers to £5; lines of heifers, £1 16s, £1 13s, and £1 11s; porkers, £2 8s. A truck of good quality springers, from various

owners, was bought to go to South Gippsland. *** ON Wednesday last, the second euchre party and dance in aid of the Frankston Brass Band eventuated in the Mechanics’ Hall. There was a very good attendance, and cards occupied the first part of the evening. Mr Bert Roberts, who did not lose a game, annexed the first prize, and Mrs Walser was successful in winning the ladies’ prize, while the “booby’’ prizes went to Mrs Williams and Mr Meldrum, junr. Before the dance commenced, a tasty supper was had all round, and thoroughly enjoyed. Dancing, to music provided by Mrs Millard (piano) and Mr Guume (cornet), was then indulged in, and a very pleasant time was spent. The playing of the band for a couple of the dances was very favourably commented upon. During an interval, the bandmaster (Mr E. C. Hammond) thanked the ladies for the help they had rendered the band, and hoped that very liberal support would be rendered at the forthcoming bazaar. The secretary of the function (Mrs Millard) and her committee had everything in apple pie order, and an very enjoyable evening was spent *** OUR readers are reminded of the concert and ball to be held at Hastings on Friday, the 15th inst., in aid of the Roman Catholic Church. The programme will include Irish and Scotch pipers, dancers, singers, and comedians from Melbourne, besides local talent. The arrangements for the ball are proceeding, and from appearances, those at ending should pass a most

pleasant evening. Visitors from a distance will have the benefit of a good moon both going and coming. *** THINGS in general have been dull; the roads are in a bad state, and if councillors are going to wait until the Main Roads Board takes over the roads, the ratepayers will pray for eternal summer. One fact is evident, that the public hall has faded out. The offer made to build the hall has not been carried out, and there is talk now that it would have been better to have looked the gift horse in the mouth, although advised to the contrary. If certain promises had not be made, the Bittern Hall might have been put upon a letter site by the local people. Ways and means can always he found where the future prosperity of a locality is assured. *** WE regret to announce the death of Mr Wm. Thornell on Saturday afternoon last. He was the second eldest son of Mr and Mrs Mark Thornell, who are old and respected residents of this district. The deceased has been a popular local resident. He has suffered very acutely of late, but all that love and trained nursing under medical supervision could do was not sufficient to ward off death. We extend our deepest sympathy to his parents and brothers and sisters. The funeral is at Somerville at 2 o’clock for the Frankston Cemetery, where the interment took place, the Rev. Father O’Hagan officiating at the graveside.

FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

Performance THE Red Hill Country Music Festival will undergo a makeover and become The Peninsula Music Festival in 2014 with a variety of music, including rock, country, blues and jazz. A new venue has also been announced, the Morning Star Winery in Mt Eliza, for the event, which is on January 12. Stay tuned for more announcements. For more info email peninsulamusicfestival@ gmail.com *** THOUGH multi-Grammy Award winner Charley Pride was by no means the first African/American to play and sing country music – black harmonica player DeFord Bailey was an Opry star way back in the 1920s – Pride was certainly the most successful from the 60s through the 80s, racking up a string of hits including ls Anybody Goin’ to San Antone, Me and Bobby McGee, Wings of a Dove, Mountain of Love, and his biggest crossover hit , Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’. Pride has a smooth, warm voice and a genuine devotion to country music and its heritage, a combination that helped him win the hearts of even the most conservative fans, despite the fact that prejudice was still rampant throughout the American south. Pride was born in Sledge, Mississippi in 1938 and raised on a cotton farm, where his parents were sharecroppers. He began playing guitar as a teenager and was a handy baseball player, doing a stint with the Negro American League team the Memphis Red Sox. Pride started playing music in small cafes after some encouraging words from Red Sovine and eventually came to the attention of RCA record producer Chet Atkins, who signed him up. His first single was The Snakes Crawl at Night, a song about a man who shoots his cheating wife. Sony Music Entertainment Australia is releasing a new greatest hits collection from this true superstar of country music. 40 Years of Pride will be released this week, ahead of his Australian tour in November. Charley Pride is one of the biggestselling country music artists of all time. He has sold an incredible 70

million albums, including 31 gold and four platinum albums, as well as one that achieved quadruple-platinum status. On RCA Records, Charley Pride is second in sales only to Elvis Presley. 40 Years of Pride features 40 of his most loved tracks on 2 CDs. Thirty of the tracks were international country number ones. This incredible legacy is a powerful reminder that ‘The Pride of Country Music’ remains one of the greatest legends in popular music – and he’s still going strong. 40 Years of Pride is the No.1 album on the New Zealand album charts this week. Charley Pride will appear at the Palais Theatre on Saturday 9 November. Bookings: 136 100 or www.ticket-

master.com.au *** MARKING the 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz, Warner Bros has produced a 3D remastered version of the film. Warner Bros Home Entertainment (WBHE) will release a limited and numbered The Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary Collector’s Edition on 2 October, featuring the 3D version of the film and more. Adapted from L Frank Baum’s timeless children’s tale about a Kansas girl’s journey over the rainbow, The Wizard of Oz opened at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on 15 August 1939. The film was directed by Victor Fleming (who that same year directed Gone with the Wind), produced by

Mervyn LeRoy, and scored by Herbert Stothart, with music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E Y Harburg. Dorothy was portrayed by a 4’11” sixteen-year-old girl who quickly earned her reputation as the world’s greatest entertainer, the incomparable Judy Garland. Ray Bolger appeared as the scarecrow, Bert Lahr as the cowardly lion, Jack Haley as the tin man, while Frank Morgan was seen in six different roles, including that of the wonderful Wizard of Oz himself. The Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary Collector’s Edition will be released as a three-disc set that will include Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Ultraviolet versions of the film, as well as a new documentary, The Making of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, collectables and additional bonus features. Four more editions will be available separately: a three-disc 3D/Blu-ray/ DVD, a one-disc Blu-ray, a single disc DVD with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L Frank Baum paperback book and the single disc DVD. All five will contain the new documentary, extra content and Ultraviolet copy. Special features will include all previously released special features, along with the all-new documentary, The Making of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a candid overview of how a troubled production overcame the odds to become an integral part of American culture, which features contributions from historians John Fricke and Sam Wasson, composers Stephen Schwartz and Marc Shaiman, critics Leonard Maltin and Michael Sragow, Bert Lahr’s son John as well as revealing interview clips with Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Buddy Ebsen, Margaret Hamilton and Mervyn LeRoy, among others. Visit www.thewizardofoz.com or www.warnerbros.com.au for further details. *** ROADSHOW Films has announced it will release the sequel to the highest grossing Australian R18+ film of all time, Wolf Creek, on 20 February, 2014. Excited fan boys and girls were the first to hear word of the upcoming

those voters who didn’t like the look of her for multiple reasons but really because she was simply a chooky female bringing with it a form of male hostility rarely seen before. Couple this with the ‘born to rule’ crowd who would never let a male or female from Altona become a member of their club anyway. Thus three years of lost policies degraded to a malefemale affair. *** MY son had a 50th birthday recently, taking me back to his birth, when I but a lad of 19 years, and way, way back to 1870. Charlie Godwin’s horse shied at a snake at The Gap; fell off and died after a happy marriage to Sarah and three children. Sad that Charlie died, but no snake, no Cliffie. Sarah married great grandfather William Ellen three years later; had another seven little darlings. And so the rot set in. Let’s hear it for the snake. *** PEPPER: Apparently, there’s 40 million refugees living in harsh poverty and we take 20,000 a year. In reading the letters to the newspapers and listening to talkback radio, I wonder why so many people resent the boat people? Apart from the men on the boats (bad enough) there are women and children there, desperate for a decent life, risking everything. The number of ignorant and misin-

formed reasons why these sad people should not come is frightening. The policies of both political parties since 1996 are an embarrassment and a disgrace. Young kids, desperate mothers and lost fathers. Do they want them to drown? When did drownings become ‘border protection’? Egalitarianism, multiculturalism, a fair go? Like fun! *** I HAVE coffee most mornings at Maggies and sometimes at Ricks, both good. Across the road on the foreshore is the Sea Scouts and Guides building. I have never seen one sea scout or girl guide in 13 years of drinking coffee. Is this a front for ASIO? Stranger things have happened, and if it is, what are they doing in Rye? Maybe the odd murder or two, late night violence during the six weeks of mayhem over Christmas/January, thousands of marijuana pot plants, the odd brothel appearing out of nowhere, but otherwise all is quiet. ASIO is stretching it; maybe secret men’s business? I’ll ask the ranger. Do we have a ranger? Or Geoff the barber? If Geoff doesn’t know, nobody knows. *** ONE would surely have to be a ‘born to rule’ Liberal voter to believe in the east-west tunnel idea. I assumed Doctor Den was joking with his “game changing” rubbish. At least with Peninsula Link we could see the advan-

tages alongside the disadvantages re third world public transport beyond Frankston. What’s the real story here Doc? The golden rule “privatise profits, socialise costs”? *** I’M told the SMS number for reporting anti-social behaviour at AFL matches is flashed on the big screen at Etihad Stadium before the game commences. Full marks for a classy idea. My query is, what happens if I’m next to a tatooed bruiser (male or female) who screams abuse at Collingwood and I report him? Best I attend a BonbeachChelsea match where anti-social behaviour is normal, and mostly good fun. *** I HAVEN’T bothered giving Frankston MP Geoff Shaw column space. He was doing a fine job with his own digging, albeit his slick move to switch to being an independent, luxuriating in his balance-of-power status, complete with overseas holiday. Geoff asks and the Libs comply, unlike Marty’s pluses here in the safe Mornington Peninsula seat. Anyway, the Frankston voters don’t need my help come the election. *** NEAR midnight, 22 July, Kate rushed to hospital. Anxiously, an embracement of the concept of a monarchy. Hallelujah. Welcome Master George. As long as I live (which won’t be all

By Gary Turner release, as Wolf Creek 2 director Greg Mclean announced the release date at Melbourne’s Oz Comic-Con. “Our goal is to create an even more suspenseful, chilling and unforgettable experience for audiences and we feel very confident they will not be disappointed,” Mclean said. “I’m so excited to be once again working with Roadshow Films on the new movie and look forward to unleashing the next instalment of this thriller across Australia early next year.” Roadshow Films managing director Joel Pearlman said: “Wolf Creek wowed audiences when it released in Australia in 2005. It is exciting that Greg and his team have found a way to bring the next chapter in the story of Mick Taylor to the screen and we are looking forward to bringing Wolf Creek 2 to audiences in 2014”. Wolf Creek was the No.1 Australian film in 2005 and also became the highest-grossing Australian R18+ film of all time. www.roadshow.com.au Top ten albums 1. 40 Years of Pride – Charley Pride (Sony) 2.

A Grain of Salt YOU do realise you can’t win don’t you? Someone must win, you say. Depends what winning means. Powerball, Tattslotto, the pokies, little fish are sweet? Sometimes, but the bottom line still holds: they get you in the long run and likely the little fish were yours in the first place. The rich, the super rich, go to great lengths to win, to be remembered beyond the croak. Shane Warne’s house is for sale at $15 million; luxury beyond fantasy, “not that there’s anything wrong with it”. Shane’s off to the big smoke, England, heavily into advanced narcissism in the steps of Barry Humphries et al. I like Tootgarook, croaking frog country, one street down from Point Nepean Rd, worth a fortune in 2060. Sorrento will become the new Portsea, which will disappear into Port Phillip Bay. I passed up Somers way back, direct access to the beach for a song, 1960. Also one at Bonbeach beachside; dopey Dan. I’ll pop across to the RSL; two pots, Carlton Draught, ponder. My ashes settled on buried Portsea in Port Phillip Bay? Post Mortem. Ever onwards. *** WHEN you think of human nature, apart from all those hoo haa reasons thrown up against her by Murdoch’s crowd, Lady Julia certainly started a long way behind scratch. We had all

By Cliff Ellen that long) I’ll remember the crowd outside the hospital singing my alltime favourite song, made famous by my all-time favourite singer Sir Cliff Richard OBE, Congratulations. My thanks to the Herald-Sun for the 12-page baby liftout; pride of place alongside my extensive collection of Sir Cliff’s CDs. Historic day, 23 July 2013. Bert turned 75, a future monarch is born and the Herald-Sun, after six years of daily ALP attacks, had a rest day... It’s not Essendon’s fault, is it? *** I HAVE no problem with attractive young mums breastfeeding in public... I know people who swear by garlic, ginger and lemon; apparently they haven’t heard of a salt and warm water gargle... It’s not what you gain but whatever you give that measures the worth of the way you live, and if that doesn’t work, try the big three: music, laughter and good company.

Gazing on my own reflection With loving, naked, pure affection I must have been a touch distracted As the steel on skin impacted ’Cos in an instant, before I knew it I was well and truly skewered Trickling blood, a crimson creek It struck me dumb, I could not speak!

I did it without fear or favour Just so you could sit and savour Some say in exasperation ‘This is too much information!’ But I think those folks are mistaken So take this picture I have taken Of me and my shaving cut Behold, my friends, my bloodied nut!

Yes with the blood upon my cheek I didn’t cry, I did not shriek I tore a tiny piece of Sorbent Thought, ‘Perfect time to take a portrait’ For though I’d cut myself whilst shaving I thought the moment one worth saving I saved it, yes, so I could prove That if I’m cut I bleed, like you

Some may claim that it’s unhealthy For a man to send a selfie To more than a million folks And cause them on their toast to choke Confronted with my bloodied image Haunted by my beaming visage I did it not to cause you fear But to remind you all I’m here

And in that awe-inspiring moment Where I chose to mobile phone it I did not turn to get a bandage But turned it to my own advantage For I’ve had many wounds before In bathrooms and on Caucus floor And with a click the deed was done Soon to be seen by everyone

Mirror, mirror on the wall Who can resist the siren’s call? Of joy and love and pure devotion That comes along with self-promotion The shock was not that I had nicked it But that the wound was self-inflicted So now I’ve shared the razor’s nip That’s all from me – I’ve gotta zip

I took this wounded face of mine And put the image up online Where it got a million hits I tweeted it to all the twits! I shoved it up on Instagram To show the world all that I am (Sure, for some, it would have grated But mystique’s sorely overrated)

Tigers embarrass Buds as Michie sees Blues over the line NEPEAN LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly DROMANA once against highlighted the significant difference between the top sides in Nepean League and those in the lower half of the top five. Expecting a cracking contest at Pier St Oval, Dromana held Rosebud goalless in two of the four quarters of the match. Despite the atrocious conditions for football, Dromana managed 37 scoring shots and finished with 19 goals. After the match, a couple of Rosebud players labelled their performance “embarrassing”, while Dromana coach Gavin Artico was very happy with his team’s performance. “We had four players out of the side today [Braedan Dennis, Aaron Coyle, Liam Hogan and Matt Neratzoglou] and gave some others the opportunity to make a claim a week out from finals,” Artico said. The four players who came into the side were Beau McMurray, Toby Banks, Jay Hutchison and Ryan Slocombe. “It’s going to be a tough task to fit 27 players into 22 next week but I guess it’s a healthy position to be in. “Players are really fighting for spots and I think it showed in their endeavour across the four quarters today. “There are still some areas that I wasn’t pleased with but, overall, a 99-point win against a side in the top five is a great result.” Daniel Gormley was best player on the ground with four goals, closely followed by Daniel Waddell, who dominated at centre half-forward and kicked four. The Tigers had 59 tackles in their attacking 50, largely due to the defence work of forwards including Waddell and Gormley, along with Paul Minchington and Toby Banks. Michael Hunter and Rikki Johnson dominated across half-back and Terry Wheeler again brought his own footy to the game. Brenton and Matty Payne were clearly the Buds’ best while Rhys Bancroft typically didn’t stop working. Ben Schultz booted three goals in the second quarter, but was well beaten by Jay Neratzoglou. Greg Bentley missed again with a shoulder injury while at Dromana, Christian Ongarello was taken to hospital after landing awkwardly in a marking contest and knocking himself out. There was no serious damage and he’ll miss only the one week. Hastings booted nine goals in the second quarter against Frankston Bombers on Saturday and held on to win in a thriller by five points. Blues’ coach Glenn Michie booted the match-winner with three minutes left on the clock to seal the win for the visitors. It was a bittersweet moment for Michie, who has been widely criticised by the club in recent times for his honest approach with the media. After the match, Michie said the win was one of his “proudest moments” on the footy field. Taylor Stratton and Luke Hewitt dominated again for the Blues, who led by 27 points at the major interval. The Bombers came storming back in the third and at three-quarter time, things were all locked up, 10.7 to 9.13.

PAGE 40

Hastings had the wind advantage in the final quarter and with Tony Mirabella booting five goals and Kane Stratton and Peter Mawson working tirelessly, the visitors were able to hang on. Ryan and Nathan Lonie booted three goals each for the Bombers while Matt Harris and Jake Foster picked up the votes. It was a sensational performance from the Blues and once again highlighted that its best is good enough to match it with the top teams. It’s been a wasted year for the Blues and now it’s time to start building for 2014. Mission number one, start locking in players. There was bad news for Sorrento on Saturday with Ben Schwarze dislocating his shoulder against Rye. Making his return to the side, Schwarze went down in the second quarter and didn’t reappear. He could be out for the season, but we’ve thought this before and he’s made a miraculous return. Trevor Mattison went down with a hamstring injury and will be racing the clock to make it back. In better news for the Sharks, Myles Pitt made a return and finished with five goals. Pitt has struggled with injury at Port Melbourne this season and, with his side having a bye, asked his home club if he could play. Obviously, the Sharks were delighted to help out a favourite son. Pitt was one of the best players on the ground, while Mitch Nibbs and Troy Schwarze also dominated. Ben Holmes, Rhett Sutton and Darren Booth were the best of the Demons, along with Adam Kirkwood. Sorrento led by three goals at half-time, by 26 points at three-quarter time and ran out winners 10.15-75 to 4.9-33. Somerville held off a fast-finishing Devon Meadows, winning by 17 points. The Eagles kicked off the day in sensational fashion, booting seven goals to one in the first quarter, before the Panthers hit back in the second. However, keeping the Panthers scoreless in the final quarter was enough to get the Eagles home. Leigh Stewart has done a magnificent job with this young side all season and has led well on the ground. He was Somerville’s best on Saturday, along with Justin Farrelly and Travis Bravo. Andrew Oldmeadow, Heath Black and Chris Thorne were the best of the Panthers. Pearcedale did what it had to against Red Hill, winning by more than seven goals. The Dales booted 6.5 to a point in the opening term and by three-quarter time, the margin had blown out to 71 points. The Hillmen rallied in the final quarter through Harry Larwill, Josh and Jake Mold and Ben Maguinness and reduced the margin. Pat Cadd kicked four and Pat Heijden and Dylan Hoare three for the Dales while Ben Mitchell and Chris Fortnam dominated. Crib Point won its final home game of the year, leading all afternoon to beat Tyabb 8.16-64 to 4.5-29. Brad Davidson and Jon Flack with three goals dominated for the Pies while Luke Herrington and Dave Lawson played well. Tim McGrath and Ben Gould were the best of the Yabbies and Matty Dimkos finished with three majors.

Stonecats mauled by Mt Eliza, Kangas jump Eagles PENINSULA LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly MT Eliza is a game clear in the top five after smashing Frankston YCW by a whopping 55 points in Peninsula League. Coming off two straight losses, the Redlegs’ place in the five was looking vulnerable until Saturday. Once again, Mt Eliza proved that its best is devastating and the Stonecats were on the receiving end of it. It’s hard to remember the last time Frankston YCW was beaten by nine goals. The Redlegs set-up the win with nine goals to one in the first quarter and by half-time the margin had blown out to 50 points. With Rohan Heasley dominating the match with six goals and Josh Norman carving up the opposition through the middle, the visitors extended their lead to 14 goals at three-quarter time. By this time, things had become embarrassing for the Stonecats and they needed to make one last effort. As expected, YCW dominated the last quarter, but inaccuracy (3.12

to one point) failed to impact the scoreboard significantly. Redlegs’ coach Jason Watts said he was always confident his team could bounce back against the competition’s yardstick. “You always worry a little when you lose two games in a row but the reality is it’s a really even competition,” Watts said. “We have systems and processes, and we just needed to get back to those. “You only need to be five or 10 per cent off your game and you’re going to get beaten in this competition. “We think we match-up pretty well against YCW and the boys were certainly confident in their ability to beat them. “With a more settled side than we’ve had recently, I was confident we would put in a good showing.” Ryley Hodson and Tony Lester flew the flag for the Stonecats. Langwarrin proved once again its best is good enough to compete with the top teams when it easily accounted for Edithvale-Aspendale. In the second half of the season, the Kangas have beaten Mt Eliza

and Edithvale, and lead YCW at the 10-minute mark of the last quarter. The Kangas kept the Eagles goalless in the opening quarter while dominating the term with 4.7. Ruckman Matty Naughton played arguably his finest game for the Kangas while Michael Parker and Jarryd Amalfi continued their dominant form. Dan Wehner finished with two majors in another faultless display. By three-quarter time, Langwarrin had completely locked down the game, extending the lead to 50 points. The Eagles rallied in the final quarter through Stevey Mannix and Zac Muschialli, reducing the final margin to 36 points, 10.12-72 to 6.1248. Pines has grabbed fifth place on the ladder and is a game clear of six- and seventh-placed Karingal and Mornington. The Pythons got the job done on Chelsea, winning by 75 points. The win lifted the Pythons’ percentage by seven per cent. While Pines was getting the job done at Chelsea, Mornington kept its finals hopes alive and at the same

time knocked Karingal out of the top bracket. The Pythons were never in any danger of losing this one and with Jake Prosser dominating once again and Brendan’s Neville and Cowell doing as they liked, the visitors extended their lead at every change. Shaun White and Guy Hendry booted four goals each. Fia Tootoo was the best of the Gulls, while Jesse Odell also worked tirelessly. Chelsea coach Paul Carbis said he was hoping to be reappointed for next season. “It’s been a tough year but I believe there has been some improvement and I’d really like to see where I can take the club next year,” he said. “I really want to see the Chelsea Football Club successful.” The club must not wait any longer and lock Carbis in now. Mornington had a season-defining match on Saturday on its home deck and simply had to beat Karingal. A loss would have ended the Bulldogs’ season. To win in such an emphatic way was super impressive.

Mornington won every quarter. In fact, the Doggies dominated every quarter. Keeping the Bulls to one goal in each of the two halves says a lot about the domination. Jackson Calder booted three goals in tough conditions, Adrian Speedy kicked a couple and a further seven players contributed on the scoreboard for the Dogs. Grant Goodall was clearly the best of the Bulls, who only had two goalkickers for the day. Bonbeach was made to work hard to get the four points against Seaford. The Sharks trailed the Tigers at half-time by three points, before booting 3.11 to 2.5 in the second hour to win 7.17-59 to 7.8-50. Jackson Casey and Dylan Jones were the catalysts in the win while Ricky Ferraro, Paul Rebeschini and Mark Tyrell continued their outstanding seasons Harry Czarnecki and Dylan Crump were the best of the Tigers, while Joe Hallal played well.

Fatima aerobics girls stay true to school motto WITH the school motto of “Dream Believe Achieve” firmly in their minds, the senior aerobics team from Our Lady of Fatima in Rosebud embarked on a journey at the beginning of the year that now has them travelling to the Gold Coast to participate in the Australian Nationals of the School Aerobics Championships on 17 and 18 August. The senior aerobics team (pictured), consisting of eight students from grades 5 and 6, participated in two state championship events in Geelong earlier in the year to place second in the state and receive the invitation to compete at the nationals.

The school’s junior team also competed and placed a very impressive fourth in the state. Our Lady of Fatima principal Monica Coyle said: “It is a really great accomplishment for a small school from the Mornington Peninsula to be representing at nationals. “The team, as well as Rebecca Thomas who is coaching the team, have shown a terrific level of enthusiasm and commitment, giving up a lot of their lunch times as well as training after school to prepare for the championships.” “Whatever the result in Queensland, the whole school community is very proud of their achievements.”
