All staff would be offered ongoing roles at other Peninsula Health sites. “We will make every effort to assist the people affected adjust to a major life change, find new roles and a new career,â€? Ms Child said. Meetings would be held with residents and their families or carers. Ms Child said the Peninsula Health board had set four key criteria for any new partner: ď Ž There will be no reduction in available aged care beds in the southern Mornington Peninsula catchment. ď Ž Strong commitment and demonstrated track record in the delivery of quality care in the residential aged care sector. ď Ž Robust, articulated plan for current residents to ensure continuity of care on the southern peninsula. ď Ž Approval as a provider of aged care under the Act with a capacity to meet those requirements of the application to transfer aged care places other than provisionally allocated places to another provider. Organisations registering an expression of interest would be expected to show they had successfully operated a residential aged care centre. “We expect many options to be presented, ranging from Peninsula Health retaining ownership of the facility and licences while the partner provides operational expertise through to sale of the RRACS as a going concern,â€? Ms Child said.

PENINSULA Health wants to either sell or find a partner for its 50-bed aged care centre at Rosebud. The centre in Point Nepean Rd comprises the 30-bed, high-care Jean Turner nursing home and the 20-bed, low-care Lotus Lodge. Peninsula Health has licences for another 48 beds at the 1.6-hectare site and wants a partner to pay for the centre to be expanded. It hopes to hand over management of the centre by January 2013 to a major private or public aged care provider. “The Mornington Peninsula currently requires an additional 350 aged care places and we are seeking an experienced partner who could both manage and possibly increase the number of beds in residential aged care facilities on the peninsula,� Peninsula Health’s executive aged care director Jan Child said. “There are 98 bed licences attached to the Rosebud facility but only 50 are currently in use. In order to make more beds available we need to find a partner able to finance additional growth.� Ms Child said Peninsula Health would find “a pool of experienced, financially strong, potential partners who would then be invited to enter a competitive tender process�. “In the unlikely event that no suitable organisations express interest, or we are unable to reach agreement with a preferred organisation, Peninsula Health will continue to operate Rosebud Residential Aged Care Services.� Ms Child has told the centre’s 60 staff that there would be no loss of

The power of youth A GROUP of young people from the peninsula has organised an event to raise money to help businesses convert to renewable energy. They are part of the 70,000-member Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Australia’s biggest youth-run organisation, and its national campaign “Repower Australia”. Eve Pawlik, Jet Sallmann, Joey De Backer, Minna Harrison and Lize Anthony have assembled a stellar line-up of entertainers at Hickinbotham of Dromana on Saturday 3-7pm. Performers will include Tash Parker, the band Kodo Motif, peninsula indi musician Lucky, peninsula born and bred singer Esther Holt and former Woodleigh student Rebeka Arnott. Speakers will include Sean Willmore, founder of Thin Green Line Foundation, and Frank Fitzgerald-Parker, founder of Sustainability Street. Repower Australia has seen thousands of young people start to transform pubs, schools, universities and cafes in their communities to renewable energy. Proceeds from the event will help Hickinbotham convert to low-energy lights and eventually solar power. The group aims to raise $5000, which will be matched by Hickinbotham. Jet Sallmann said the Repower program aimed to encourage “our community to become more involved in a sustainable future for the peninsula”. “Helping Hickinbotham ‘repower’ will demonstrate how investing in renewable, efficient resources is a feasible option,” he said.

Campaign to save pier By Mike Hast DROMANA pier has concrete cancer and could be closed within eight years if repairs are not carried out, says the Association for Building Community in Dromana. Members of the association inspected the pier with Reece Taranto of Parks Victoria last Friday to lobby for funds to fix the iconic structure, a version of which has existed since 1862. They have written to federal MP Greg Hunt, state MP Martin Dixon and Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors to enlist their support for a “Save Dromana Pier” campaign. Association president Bob Donaldson and secretary Ray Barnard-Brown said they had advice from a concrete expert stating repairs must be made within five years to keep the pier open. “In the long term it would be good to extend the pier to enable commercial vessel to visit Dromana, just like in the old days,” Mr Donaldson said during an inspection with The News last Friday. Mr Barnard-Brown said there were three options: very little maintenance, which would condemn the pier to closure; remedial work to save it; or replacement. “Reece Taranto told us the pier won’t be lost, but Parks Victoria had no money for it at the moment,” Mr Barnard-Brown said. “It would last 10 years with some maintenance, but then would have to be replaced.” Mr Donaldson and Mr Barnard-Brown briefed members of Rotary Club of Dromana earlier this month, seeking their support for the campaign. They told Rotarians finding money for the pier could take years and a campaign must start now. “Imagine Dromana without the pier? The township would lose its heart and soul. Mt Martha used to have a pier but it’s gone and the same thing could happen in Dromana. “If the pier is closed to the public in future, will it be left to rot away and then demolished? “The money spent on demolition would be better spent on repairing it. This is perhaps our strongest argument for a funding commitment.” Mr Donaldson said a specialist with a company that repaired concrete in the marine environment had given the association details of products to use. “He said the Flinders pier was in far worse condition before repairs were carried out last year.” The campaign to renovate the pier is supported by Crs Graham Pittock and David Gibb. Mr Taranto of Parks Victoria could not be contacted for comment. For details of the campaign, contact Association for Building Community in Dromana, PO Box 150, Dromana 3936 or email:

Pier’s colourful past

Good old days: Dromana pier in the 1930s when it was twice as long as now and was used by commercial fishermen and passenger steamers.

Tales from real life JUDGING a book by its cover can be problematical. Does the cover art fit the narrative? Rosebud Secondary College students were this week able to read potted biographies about their “books” but it was only in conversation they could discover the real stories. In a twist on talking books, the school was visited by a “living library” of 10 people who sat with small groups of students to talk about their lives and careers. Among the living books were owners of small businesses Max Johnson, of Felix in Dromana, and Annette Sanfilippo, fashion accessorymaker at Tyabb Packing House; former soldier Fred Rossborough; policeman Grant Watkins; scuba diver Des Williams; writer and comedian Daniel Burt; snake catcher Barry Goldsmith; Afghan refugee Shafiq Monis; circus performer Skip Walker-Milne; and the school’s principal, John Miller.

WHEN it was built in 1862, four years after a post office was established, Dromana pier became the epicentre of the village. Goods were transported by boat in those days when there were few roads. Travelling overland to Melbourne could take many days. The pier was extended to 1200 metres long in 1873, the second-longest on Port Phillip, and was crowded with fishing boats. It had a railway line used to move timber and other goods, and by 1880 the town was a popular seaside resort. Remains of rail lines and carts can still be seen underwater about 90 metres off the end of the existing pier. Stumps from the old pier are a diving attraction. It hosted the famous paddlesteamers Golden Crown, Lonsdale, Ozone, Hygeia and Weeroona during the golden age of sea travel on Port Phillip between the 1880s and 1942 (when Weeroona was bought by the US Navy and taken to the Philippines for use as accommodation. She carried 1900 people when plying Port Phillip). In the 1930s Melbourne gangster Squizzy Taylor and his crew travelled to Dromana by steamer, rode up Arthurs Seat in open-topped buses and indulged in wild weekends at the Garden of the Moon resort (now Arthurs Hotel). The US Navy used the pier during the Second World War and damaged a section during manoeuvers. The existing pier was built in 1960 but certainly won’t last for another 50 years.

Turtle toll rises along with temperature

Just looking: Rye surfer Mark Hill took this underwater shot of two whales just beyond the break at Portsea.

Whales strike a pose for the camera THE surf was small but the rewards were great when Mark Hill found himself the centre of attraction for two whales. While surfing at Portsea on a Saturday late last month, Mr Hill was surprised at how close the whales came when he and a friend paddled to the outside of the break.

“They were about 30 metres outside of the surf break. The waves were small so that’s maybe why they came in so close,” he said. “I’ve seen more whales than usual this year, but these were the closest yet,” said Mr Hill, a regular surfer. He was carrying a small waterproof digital video camera, which he held

underwater when the whales came close. “I didn’t really know how close they were until I got home and replayed the footage,” he said. “At one stage they came right under my board, which felt a bit scary. “But it was a good experience – one that you don’t get every day.”

SEVEN dead green turtles have been found on Port Phillip beaches in the past eight weeks. One of the turtles appeared to have struggled ashore at Rosebud but died soon after. Another dead turtle was washed ashore at Shelley Beach on Phillip Island, bringing the total to eight, about four times the normal count for this time of the year, according to Judy Muir of Sorrento-based Polperro Dolphin Swims. Ms Muir said autopsies would be conducted on the Rosebud and Phillip Island turtles to try to establish what caused their deaths. The shells of two of the turtles were more than 40cm across. A “report card” on Marine Climate Change in Australia, released on 17 August by the CSIRO, noted that the Eastern Australian Current (EAC) was extending southward, “leading to fast warming”. “Increasing water temperatures are likely to have an impact on the distribution of marine mammals and seabirds; ranges of both tropical and temperate species are likely to move southwards,” the report stated. The CSIRO-led report was compiled with data from more than 80 Australian marine scientists from 34 universities and research organisations. “Southward range extensions have been documented for seaweeds, phytoplankton, zooplankton, and demersal and pelagic fishes,” the report said.

“Protecting the Peninsula”



“Declining recruitment for rock lobster has been observed. Fisheries and aquaculture businesses are already adapting to these changes. “The intensification of flow and accelerated warming observed in the EAC is also seen in other Southern Hemisphere western boundary current systems, driven by the strengthening and contraction south of Southern Hemisphere westerlies (wind), although regional responses mean rates of warming differ among systems. “A range of species, including plankton, fish and invertebrates, are now found further south because of enhanced transport of larvae and juveniles in the stronger EAC and the high rate of regional warming.” The report predicted that flows of the Eastern Australian Current would continue to strengthen.

Victory for a low-rise McCrae By Mike Hast THE McCrae shopping strip will be protected by rules restricting new buildings to no more than two storeys and a total height of eight metres. The decision is a big win for “people power” after McCrae Action Group fought a long campaign to oppose several proposals for multi-storey buildings as well as a late-night tavern and liquor shop. Mornington Peninsula Shire’s planning scheme amendment for McCrae was approved by state Planning Minister Matthew Guy earlier this month. The shire says the planning amendment “strongly reinforces [our] position on maintaining a clear and rigid hierarchy of townships on the Mornington Peninsula”. “The hierarchy directs major developments to ‘major activity centres’ and less intensive development to the smaller centres. “The shire [has] 26 designated ‘small townships’ – ‘local’ or ‘convenience’ activity centres each with their own identity, character and history. “McCrae is of particular importance due to its natural setting between Port Phillip Bay, Anthonys Nose and Arthurs Seat.” McCrae Action Group coordinated a campaign to get the two-storey limit. It fought three applications in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal to stop tall buildings. The group was formed in 2007 when the first development was proposed. Action group coordinator Alan Nelsen said 100 residents attended a pub-

lic meeting and more than 1000 signatures were collected and presented to the VCAT. Dr Nelsen said he was annoyed at the shire’s press release of 16 August that announced the height restriction. The area’s councillor, David Gibb, was quoted saying the shire “undertook extensive background analysis in creat-

ing a design statement for the McCrae village, which was used as a platform to create the planning regulation”. “Cr Gibb told our first meeting he was in favour of three storeys,” Dr Nelsen said. “After the first McCrae case in the VCAT, which we won despite the council, we complained about the

council’s performance to CEO Dr Michael Kennedy and he appointed an independent person to report on their performance and how they could perform better at VCAT. “Cr Gibb was of no help at all. When he was needed, he went missing. He never once followed up where the amendment was with government in

the three years it took to get approval.” Dr Nelsen said Cr Gibb did not attend any of the 10 meetings the action group had with shire planners. “On one occasion Cr Gibb phoned me before a council meeting when a developer wanted a tavern licence, which would allow liquor to be served well after midnight as well as takeaway liquor after all other outlets on the southern peninsula had closed,” Dr Nelsen said. “He said we would lose at the VCAT. I told him we would take our chances at the tribunal, and we won.” Cr Gibb told The News Dr Nelsen was unaware of the significant lobbying by the shire of the state Department of Planning and Community Development for the McCrae height rules. Shire planners, acting under instructions from the council, worked hard to get the planning amendment, he said. Cr Gibb said “I led the charge with the support of my council colleagues”. He said it was not true that he had been in support of three storeys, and he had not been invited to any of the 10 meetings. Dr Nelsen said McCrae residents had a special affinity with the village and were pleased with the new height rules. “The McCrae Village with its historic lighthouse, yacht and life saving clubs, and McCrae Homestead is one of the many places on the peninsula we love. As one resident told me, ‘the peninsula is not St Kilda or Port Melbourne and that is why we live and enjoy it here’.”

30 YEARS EXPERIENCE Southern Peninsula News 23 August 2012



Wood surf class stays in shape By Keith Platt HAWAIIANS used to surf with flat wooden boards. Early etchings dating from a visit by Captain James Cook show something not too dissimilar to a wooden ironing board. Cook was killed by the Hawaiians on 14 February1779, during his second trip to the archipelago, which he called the Sandwich Islands. The drawings of Hawaiians surfing were by one of Cook’s officers, Lieutenant James King, who wrote “they seem to feel a great pleasure in the motion that this exercise gives”. King is credited with making the first written account of surfing. Missionaries who eventually followed in Cook’s footsteps failed miserably to convince the Hawaiians that surfing was a sin. The Hawaiians introduced Australians to the early forerunners of today’s short boards, which are made from a variety of chemical-based materials, all highly carcinogenic if eaten or inhaled. But fibreglass, foam and resin work wonders. They can be moulded, and are durable and light. Surfboard design has evolved along with the availability and pliability of these materials. It has long been a recognised irony that while most surfers care for the environment (they wish to surf clean water and appreciate healthy marine ecosystems), they have the petrochemical industry to thank for their equipment. Balsa wood was used to shape surfboards before foam blanks became available, but the lightweight natural material soaked up water and had to be covered with fibreglass and resin. Timber veneers have been glassed over foam to attain a natural look. In the end, about 90 per cent of the board remains the same – fibreglass, foam and resin. A few years ago, purists again started riding ironing boards, but the movement has not taken

off except as a novelty. The ironing board has nowhere near the wave-catching ease or maneuverability of a board made from, you guessed it, fibreglass, foam and resin. Last week a class of eight at Mt Eliza learnt how to make a wooden surfboard that performs the same as its environmentally unfriendly lookalikes. Gary Miller and Rob Ivers were holding their third workshop with three more already booked out. Each workshop lasts three days and at the end everyone attending walks away with a wooden, environmentally friendly surfboard under their arm. The paulownia plantation-grown timber (native to China) practically lasts forever, Miller says. Widely used in furniture, caravans, yachts and window shutters, paulownia is easy to work and, best of all for a surfboard, doesn’t absorb water, although most boards are finished off with a coat of varnish (environmentally friendly, of course). Miller and Ivers operate under the Tree to Sea Australia banner, using plans and designs from United States-based Rich Blundell, who was out here in April running a board-making workshop in the garage of Ivers’s Mt Eliza house. “We use his plans, which are selected and bought from his website,” Miller says. He said the “green push” is seeing increasing numbers of surfers showing an interest in making a hollow wooden board. Most surfers want to shape a board, but baulk at

carving into a block of foam. The Tree to Sea designs are built on a frame similar to that underlying an aircraft wing. The frames are pre-cut by Miller and Ivers after the plans are chosen by each surfer in the class. The surfers are shown how to glue the lengths of paulownia together for the top and bottom decks, with thinner strips being glued along the edges, or rails. Thin strips of cedar are used for decoration or strength as stringers. Miller says young and old surfers have signed up for the classes and some secondary colleges are showing interest. “Making these boards could cut across three departments, technical, art and multimedia,” he says. And what about the acid test – actually riding a wooden board in the surf? “It’s got a lot to do with where your head is,” Miller says. “It’s different to a foam board. A bit heavier, which gives more momentum and glide. You can push through the whitewater. “Like any board, it’s all locked in with the surfboard shape and individual style.” The three days of tuition cost $450 and the board materials are $60 a foot (surfers and real estate agents still use imperial measures), which pretty much equate to the cost of a custom-built fibreglass, foam and resin job.

Future vision: This is an illustration from a report prepared by Jackson Architecture entitled Rosebud Big Think: Design Concepts for the Rosebud Activity Centre, which was released by Mornington Peninsula Shire earlier this month. It is part of the draft Rosebud Activity Centre Urban Design Framework, which provides details of some of the key design aspects of the structure plan for the town and foreshore. It shows the proposed location of the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (red blocks) and an idea for a pier with a tidal pool in Port Phillip. Residents have 20 days to comment on the plan.

Greens enter pool debate By Mike Hast GREENS MP Sue Pennicuik has weighed into the debate about the proposed aquatic centre at Rosebud. In state parliament last week, she queried the basis of Environment Minister Ryan Smith’s granting of coastal consent for the multi-million dollar project. Her questions follow similar ones from Upper House Labor MP Johan Scheffer late last year and on 1 March and 23 May. Mr Scheffer asked Mr Smith to provide reasons for his decision and the advice he relied on to approve building of the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (SPA) on the foreshore. In parliament, Ms Pennicuik stated

the Department of Sustainability and Environment had consistently advised that the proposed use of the foreshore Crown land was inconsistent with the Victorian Coastal Strategy (VCS), which stated the criteria for use and development must be that it: Had demonstrated need to be sited on the coast and required a coastal location to function. Fulfilled an identifiable need or demand that could not be met elsewhere. Enhanced public access to the coast and would not result in a reduction of open space. She said the coastal strategy stated development should avoid developments within primary sand dunes and in low-lying coastal areas, ensured

new development was located and designed so that it could be appropriately protected from climate change risks and impacts, and ensured all plans considered the most recent scientific information on the impacts of climate change. “It is also unclear whether the minister followed correct procedure in issuing his consent to Mornington Peninsula Shire to use the foreshore for the proposed aquatic centre. “The minister had stated in his consent letter that there needed to be evidence of broad-based community support for the foreshore aquatic centre.” Ms Pennicuik said Rosebud foreshore was an integral part of the entire foreshore and coastline of Port Phillip,

“all of which needs protection from inappropriate and non-coastal-dependent development”. She said there was a requirement Mr Smith answer her questions within 30 days, but conceded he had not replied to any of Mr Scheffer’s questions. The Greens MP said she had inspected various sites in Rosebud and the best place for the centre was Rosebud Central Shopping Centre on the corner of Rosebud Pde and Wannaeue Place. The 3550 square metre centre is for sale through Fitzroys real estate and includes a Ritchies supermarket, whose lease expires next July, as well as 10 shops. It is adjacent to Rosebud Cinemas and a large car park.

Pay promise – MP targeted UNIONISTS have been called on to pressure Nepean MP Martin Dixon this Saturday to force the state government to honour a pre-election promise to make Victorian teachers the highest paid in Australia. The Australian Education Union has called for volunteers to letterbox leaflets and “provide information” in Mr Dixon’s electorate and outside his office in McCrae Plaza, Point Nepean Rd, McCrae. Mr Dixon, state education minister, is one of seven Liberal and National party MPs being targeted in the union campaign. The electorates of Frankston MP Geoff Shaw and Carrum MP Donna Bauer will be visited by the unionists on Saturday 8 September. The campaign started in the Premier Ted Baillieu’s Hawthorn electorate on Saturday 11 August. Teachers taking part in the campaign have been asked to wear a campaign shirt or red clothing during the 10am to midday protest.

PORT of Melbourne CEO Stephen Bradford suggests we read the “overwhelming body of evidence” that will refute my claims that the need for pier works and the erosion at Portsea Beach are linked to the dredging of The Heads (‘Erosion is natural’, Letters, 26/7/12). So, an excellent place for the public to start its reading would be media releases on the pier issue on the Department of Sustainability and Environment or Parks Victoria’s websites. Nothing about the now-stalled pier works is on those departmental websites. Likewise, a search of the port’s website comes up with no results. No doubt Mr Bradford will refer us to the Office of the Environmental Monitor’s report by Dr Eric Bird, which purports to have studied the erosion of bayside beaches, including Portsea. The 64-page report has less than one page on Portsea. This is despite at a Portsea public meeting on 13 December 2011 Rodney Warren, DSE Manager Port Phillip Coasts, advising:  Erosion events occur all around the coast.  Portsea has lost up to 25 metres of beach since May 2010.  Other bay beaches have lost on average 0.5 to 1 metre.  If a solution cannot be found, Portsea Beach may have to be “let go”.  There is no evidence that enlarging The Heads during channel deepening is part or any of the cause.  The cause of the loss of Portsea beach is still not known.  Massive changes at Portsea are likely all part of natural variability.  DSE has taken that advice from the Office of Environmental Monitor. Surely it is illogical and indefensible for DSE to say what is definitely not the cause while not being able to say what is likely to be the cause? I agree beaches come and go with the seasons and weather, but the point about Portsea is that it went but didn’t come back. The historical photos I have from the last 100 years of Portsea Beach shows a relatively stable beach, despite various extreme weather events.

So the events in the past few years surely fall outside the range of his “typically not permanent features”. I challenge Mr Bradford to demonstrate the studies that have been done were designed to best detect potential changes to wave and current wave speed post dredging. I outlined this argument in a paper I gave to the Law Institute in March 2012, in which I analysed the location of the wave and current buoys that were deployed for the port corporation’s overwhelming body of independent evidence. The studies were done by Cardno Lawson and Treloar (CLT), also consultants for the port’s channel deepening project. The port corporation says it dredged The Heads to allow deeper draught ships to enter the bay, but it refuses to release data on the actual draught of ships as they leave and enter. We contend that just five ships have needed to use the deepened entrance, and look forward to seeing some hard facts from Mr Bradford. Jenny Warfe Blue Wedges Coalition

MP supports change for Clean Ocean By Keith Platt FEDERAL MP Greg Hunt has praised the decision by Clean Ocean Foundation to shift its focus from the Gunnamatta sewage outfall to potential environmental effects from the desalination plant at Kildcunda, near Wonthaggi. Mr Hunt, MP for Flinders and Opposition spokesman on climate action, environment and heritage, said the desalination plant was “the most costly and environmentally damaging option to secure Melbourne’s water supply”. “I am greatly concerned about the impact of the plant’s outfall on marine life, particularly migratory whales, and will continue to work closely with the local community on this issue,” Mr Hunt said. It is understood Mr Hunt’s statement of support followed discussions with Clean Ocean president Peter Smith. A long-time supporter of Clean Ocean (workers at one of his polling booths once wore the foundation’s tshirts), Mr Hunt made no comment on the acrimonious dispute set in train by revelations by the foundation’s former CEO James Clark-Kennedy that it would be wound up. Mr Clark-Kennedy last month emailed a letter to Mr Hunt and many others, accusing Clean Ocean’s president Peter Smith of wanting to end the organisation without first asking paidup members (‘Clean Ocean heads for the exit’, The News 9/8/12). He questioned the probity of decisions on the future of the foundation – including that it be wound up – being made by the committee headed by Mr Smith without reference to its members. Mr Clark-Kennedy was sent an email by Mr Smith on Saturday 14 July saying his “contracted services” as CEO were no longer required. He said the email was sent a day after the Friday 13 July meeting of the Clean Ocean committee had decided to wind up its operations. Mr Smith susequently told The News that the foundation would continue efforts to stop pollution of the sea from an office at Wonthaggi. The decision followed “a period of necessary introspection”, which would see the closure of the foundation’s Rosebud office and his wish to remain on the committee, but not as president. Mr Clark-Kennedy last week released copies of emails from Mr Smith to back up his initial claims that members of the Clean Ocean committee had wanted to wind-up the organisation. One of the emails was sent to seven people approached by Mr Clark-

Kennedy as prospective committee members. In an email to these people and others dated Saturday 14 July, Mr Smith stated that the Clean Ocean Foundation management committee had passed a unanimous resolution “to proceed in winding up the foundation”. A second email to “committee, associates and friends” provided the same information, but added that he, Mr Smith, had been given authority to deal with several issues involved in the wind-up of the foundation. “While we understand however that this may not be acceptable to everybody it is however a unanimous decision of the committee,” Mr Smith stated. “The process will take some time and may require some input from those of you who have been more closely involved.” Since then, Mr Smith has said the foundation will continue “as normal” until a general meeting later this year. Mr Smith announced Clean Ocean would not be disbanded in a news release headed “Clean Ocean back from the brink and into the drink”. “The last month has seen some lively debate over the future direction of the Clean Ocean Foundation. With so much of the original vision almost realised, the association entered a period of necessary introspection,” Mr Smith stated. Mr Smith said Clean Ocean had worked well with a Bass Coast group of members who had an action plan “to develop a transparent testing regime to monitor this outfall and sludge” and photograph the marine environment in the proposed discharge area. “This is a major step in the continuity of the mission of the foundation,” Mr Smith stated. “This issue is as serious as the Gunnamatta problem and will require dedi¬cation and tenacity. The campaign will highlight this issue in the community and at government level.” “The outfall from this plant will be three times the volume of the daily outflow of effluent that is disposed of at Gunnamatta. “This outfall is called a ‘brine stream’ by the managing authorities, but critics call it a toxic cocktail of chemicals and waste from the desalination process. “There is also a very large volume of sludge produced and as yet there is very little information as to how this will be disposed.” He said the foundation had been formed nearly 12 years ago. In 2005 “as pressure from Clean Ocean looked likely to secure a commitment to up-

End in sight: Clean Ocean Foundation believes the time is right to move attention away from the Gunnamatta sewage outfall, above, and take on the ocean pollution potential of the desalination plant at Kilcunda, near Wonthaggi.

grade the Eastern Treatment Plant, an ambitious strategy was developed to shut down not only Gunnamatta but also all 142 outfalls around the country”. “Now, in 2012, works on the Eastern Treatment Plant [near Carrum] are well under way and tertiary upgrade is near completion [and] the association is preparing a campaign against the next target on the list – the Bass Coast desalination plant. The foundation is back from the brink and into the drink; we have had our period of introspection and we are now moving forward to tackle one of Victoria’s greatest environmental challenges,” Mr Smith stated. Mr Smith said the foundation would continue to monitor the Carrum treatment plant upgrade to tertiary standard “and keep active pressure on South East Water, which has been lagging in its upgrade program around the Mt Martha treatment process”.

“News that the Clean Ocean Foundation will continue the fight to improve our marine environment and broaden its focus to include the desalination plant is welcome,” Mr Hunt stated. “Cleaning up the Gunnamatta sewage outfall has been a major focus of mine for many years. Discharging 150 billion litres of wastewater a year into the ocean at a significantly polluted level is unacceptable. “I am delighted that with the tertiary upgrade to the Eastern Treatment Plant well underway, we are nearing the end of that community campaign. “I am committed to a National Ocean Outfalls Plan. If elected to government, I will work with the states to ensure each of our outfalls is cleaned up to an acceptable standard and that water is recycled for industry and agriculture. I hope to continue to work with the Clean Ocean Foundation on this plan.

“The Clean Ocean Foundation’s focus on the Kilcunda desalination plant will strengthen the community’s voice in calling for greater scrutiny of the environmental impacts of this plant. “In choosing to go ahead with the desalination plant, the former Brumby government chose the most costly and environmentally damaging option to secure Melbourne’s water supply. “I am greatly concerned about the impact of the plant’s outfall on marine life, particularly migratory whales, and will continue to work closely with the local community on this issue.” Mr Hunt also welcomed the foundation’s ongoing commitment to “our Clean Up Port Phillip Bay campaign”. “Our aim is to work collaboratively with the community and all three tiers of government on a plan to make Port Phillip Bay the cleanest urban waterway in the southern hemisphere by 2022.”

Parks a govt development target By David Harrison TOURIST development in Victoria’s parks – including Arthurs Seat, Greens Bush and Point Nepean parks on the peninsula – is almost certainly on the state government’s agenda following its controversial plan to open green wedge zones for business. The state government agenda could include a revival of the notorious Kennett government’s “hotels in parks” plan. Under this scheme, then conservation minister Marie Tehan proposed a 150-bed licensed lodge for Tidal River at Wilsons Promontory and a 45bed serviced lodge and four huts for the use of commercial operations in remote areas of the park. It led to fierce and widespread public opposition that saw the plan dropped. Extensive work has already been done developing Point Nepean National Park. It is one of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s top tourist priorities – “accommodation, conferencing and marine infrastructure at Point Nepean”. A boutique hotel has been mooted. Speculation about the Baillieu government’s further plans to open up Victoria for tourism stems from the main wellspring of Planning Minister Matthew Guy’s proposals for the green wedge – the 2011 report Unlocking Victorian Tourism by Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission. Under the heading “Key messages” the report states: “National parks are a popular destination for interstate and international visitors but a lack of quality accommodation on or near these parks diminishes their value to the community. “The commission recommends the government remove the prohibition on private development of tourist facilities in national parks where they provide a net benefit and complement environmental, heritage and other values.” The Labor government-initiated inquiry was

chaired by economist Dr Matthew Butlin, assisted by Deborah Cope and Bill Mountford, also economists. Understandably, their report focuses strongly on the economic aspects of tourist development. In its introduction the report states: “... the growing wealth in Asia (especially China and India) has produced strong growth in inbound tourism to Australia and Victoria from these destinations, thus creating opportunities for tourism-related businesses in Victoria. “As a result the tourism market is changing. To capitalise on the new opportunities that arise from these changes, tourism businesses need to be able to respond and adapt.” It argues “The Victorian government can directly influence the competitiveness of tourismrelated businesses ... through the way it manages state-owned attractions such as the national parks, forests and sporting and cultural facilities.” “Regulatory hotspots” the VCEC focuses on include:  Land use planning regulation and administration.  Regulations relating to the use of public land, especially state and national parks. It identifies the peninsula as the seventh-most popular tourist destination for visitors to Victoria, behind the Queen Victoria Market and ahead of Ballarat/Sovereign Hill, Bendigo and Phillip Island. The report gives the Baillieu government impressive expert opinion to support plans for park development. The VCEC report was preceded by a Howard government plan to open up national parks to private operators. In July 2007 the then minister for tourism, Fran Bailey, told the ABC she wanted “to get commercial tourism operators involved in developing facilities in national parks”.

Months later federal Labor took office and the “partnership” has not been heard of since. Mr Guy’s green wedge and other rural zone proposals strongly echo the VCEF recommendations that “regulatory barriers” to tourism ventures be removed by providing “more flexibility” in current zonings and local policies. The VCEC says this flexibility would:  Allow a wider range of tourism-related activities such as tourist accommodation, function centres, recreation facilities and restaurants.  Remove the requirement to undertake tourismrelated activities “in conjunction with” specific activities such as agriculture.  Remove the arbitrary limits on the scale of tourism-related activities, such as the limits on B&B, restaurant and residential accommodation. All this “flexibility” is provided in Mr Guy’s green wedge proposals, indicating clearly that he has studied and agrees with the VCEC approach. Mr Guy is effectively proposing abolition of all the controls on green wedge land that ban largescale development of accommodation and tourist-orientated businesses such as restaurants, convention centres and residential accommodation. It is only a short step from opening up the green wedge to permitting the same businesses to establish in state and national parks. Another critical consequence of Mr Guy’s green wedge proposals, whether intended or not, is that urban growth boundaries, which clearly separate what is urban from what is green, are blurred almost to invisibility by permitting previously banned commercial activity on small lots abutting urban areas. Mornington Peninsula Shire officers privately say they are horrified by, and will strongly oppose, Mr Guy’s changes to its valuable – economically and aesthetically – green wedge, which covers 70 per cent of the peninsula and is a substantial element in its attraction to tourists and locals. The shire had not publicly voiced its opposition three weeks after the Guy plans were released. There is also almost total silence from Labor and, more interestingly, from the Greens, for whom a matter seemingly aimed at emasculating green wedges protections should be reflexive. An assault on parks in the shire – Arthurs Seat State Park is already compromised by the planned new chairlift – should stiffen its determination to oppose the Guy plans. The chairlift group could apply for park access to build accommodation, restaurants, conven-

tion centres, a service station and possibly even a medical centre. The shire’s current local planning scheme aims to:  “Protect and conserve the rural landscape and character of the peninsula as a major recreational resource for both the local and wider metropolitan community.” (Mr Guy’s plans, and possible state government park plans, could make this almost impossible to achieve.)  “Support the continued agricultural use of land by avoiding the establishment of uses that may exclude or limit legitimate rural activities and farm management practice.” (Green wedge and park land would come under severe pressure from developers keen to cash in on the Guy vision of the green wedge hosting facilities including medical centres, schools, abattoirs, service stations and largescale accommodation – many of them as-of-right, meaning no community right to object or appeal.)  “Promote the growth of major and township activity centres and avoid inappropriate out-ofcentre commercial developments.” (The shire has tried to control the growth of camping and caravan parks – currently a permitted use on green wedge land – by proposing limits to the number of sites per park and their proximity to urban areas. It so far has been unsuccessful. Mr Guy’s plans would not only allow these parks but would encourage their development into de facto villages, complete with schools, stores and so on. A problem all councils face is that caravan parks can become highly sought low-cost housing where state law gives people the right to permanent residence. Mr Guy, by permitting shops and the like in the green wedge, signals his approval for such developments.) Current shire policy seeks to protect green wedge land by requiring that: Applicants for commercial development in the green wedge or farming zones “must demonstrate that their proposal addresses a need or gap in the tourist industry and is not dependent on the development of other residential or commercial activities on the site or in the locality.” The state government’s plan, and possible incursion into national and state parks, almost certainly renders its current policy and the shire’s still-gestating Green Wedge Management Plan redundant if not utterly impotent.

SUPER SPECIALS Malta memories: A bugler plays the Last Post as RAN chaplain Rev Graeme Watkinson, left, and Merchant Navy War Service League secretary James Taylor remember the relief of Malta.

Ceremony marks relief of Malta GC By James Taylor THE 70th anniversary of Operation Pedestal, the naval operation that on 15 August 1942 brought supplies to the besieged island of Malta in the Mediterranean during the Second World War, was commemorated at the Dromana Peninsula Club on 12 August. The operation was a major turning point in the Mediterranean theatre of the war. In April 1942 King George had already awarded Malta the George Cross for the bravery of its civilians who had endured a long blockade by the Axis powers of Germany and Italy. Military planners knew Malta would be forced to surrender if fuel, grain and ammunition did not get through as there was less than two weeks of supplies. The convoy involved 14 merchant vessels guarded by 64 warships including battleships, cruisers, aircraft carriers and destroyers. The island and its British naval base were staring down the barrel of surrender when the relief convoy limped into port, allowing Malta to go on to play a crucial role in the invasion of Italy The task of getting ships into Grand Harbour was made hazardous when the crippled tanker Ohio became wedged between two destroyers and a tug The island was saved and other convoys fol-

lowed, but a high price was paid with the eventual loss of 10 merchant ships, two battleships, two aircraft carriers, 40 destroyers, a submarine and many small craft. Attending the 70th anniversary at the former RSL in Dromana were the Consul-General of Malta, Charles Mifsud; the national president of the RSL, Rear Admiral (retired) Ken Doolan; RAN chaplain Rev Graeme Watkinson; Alan Day, Knight Commander of St John of Malta; Michael Montebello of Merchant Navy Association Malta; Lou Spiteri, Ex Servicemen’s Association Malta; Max Bryant, president of Navy Dolphins and Oberon Society; members of the Royal Navy, Royal Australian Navy, Merchant Navy, war veterans; and members of the peninsula’s Maltese community. Mr Montebello talked about the convoy, Rev Watkinson led a service of prayers and navy hymns, and Rear Admiral Doolan gave the Ode. A bugler performed the Last Post. At the end of lunch, Consul-General Mifsud gave a talk about the war and suffering of the Maltese community, which had been bombed every day and night for more than five months, and Rear Admiral Doolan spoke about the convoy and how they battled on to Malta.  James Taylor is national secretary of the Merchant Navy War Service League.

Sanctuary plan for hot springs PENINSULA Hot Springs has received $100,000 from the federal government to develop a bird sanctuary and wetlands. The project will be close to accommodation for up to 130 people in lodges and a guest house planned for the 17-hectare site in Springs Lane, Rye. Moonah trees are already being replanted around the proposed Cups Bird Sanctuary and Wetlands. The money being given to the hot springs comes from the government’s T-Qual (Tourism Quality) grant program. Hot springs director Richard Davidson said the project was a “pivotal engineering and landscaping element” in the hot springs 2001 master plan. “All planning permissions for the sanctuary and accommodation are already in place. The gardens will require a couple of years of settling, and then the accommodation will be able to commence,” fellow director Charles Davidson said. Walking tracks through the sanctuary would “facilitate indigenous flora and fauna education tours … and later provide the vital access trails for a visually delightful walk of some 300 metres between the resort lodges and the hot mineral spring pools of Peninsula Hot Springs”, Richard Davidson said. “The hot springs resort site plan ensures each lodge is carefully aligned to capture views of the

lakes, streams, flora and fauna of The Cups Bird Sanctuary and Wetlands,” Charles Davidson said. Work on the sanctuary is scheduled to start before the end of the year. “By mid to end 2013, we should be in a position to start our first tours, however, it will take a couple of years until the lakes and streams and their surrounding plant and wildlife fully settle in,” Charles Davidson said.

Meter worries go to councils

Happy hikers: The 10 members of Peninsula Bushwalking Club who made the 30-kilometre trek from McCrae to Cape Schanck.

A day’s hike across the peninsula TEN members of Peninsula Bushwalking Club spent a recent Saturday hiking from McCrae lighthouse to Cape Schanck lighthouse. On previous occasions, many club members had completed the walk in two halves, but this was the first attempt to complete the entire distance in a day. Starting in half light at 7am, the party set out along the coast to the start of the Two Bays Walking Track near Anthonys Nose at McCrae. “A steady climb up Arthurs Seat is the hardest part of the route, but presented rewarding views across Port

Phillip as the sun cast its first light,” club member John Trevillian said. “Kangaroos and birdlife were abundant and the winter wattles, golden in the bright sunshine, accompanied them all day.” Mr Trevillian said the 30-kilometre walk was “probably the longest distance any of the party had covered in a day”. “With the final six kilometres still to go, it was a welcome sight when the party was met by two more club members who treated them to a welcome bush afternoon tea. “Finally at about 3.30pm the group

emerged from one of the peninsula’s most attractive walks. “With Cape Schanck lighthouse in the background, there were many congratulatory handshakes and thoughts of a relaxing shower.” Mr Trevillian said that not all club walks were as long or as challenging “but these walkers were all seasoned bushwalking club members”. The club holds day walks and overnight walks all over Victoria. For details go to www.peninsulabushwalkingclub. or email peninsulabushwalking

Alliance plans to ‘rescue’ food AN organisation that plans to “rescue” unwanted food and distribute it to needy families is considering sites in Mornington for a warehouse and distribution centre. Eastern Food Alliance director Keith Kasimiotis said the organisation planned to work with charities to

distribute food to the needy. He claimed the group sorted 800kg of food each week at a warehouse in Kilsyth in Melbourne’s east and worked with more than 60 charities. “We are proposing a similar arrangement on the peninsula to start in February 2013,” he said.

The alliance planned to use volunteer workers and offer training to unemployed people and school students. Mornington Peninsula Shire business development officer Tania Treasure said the shire had not been in any discussions with Eastern Food Alliance.

By Mike Hast MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillors Tim Rodgers and Leigh Eustace, and Frankston councillor Glenn Aitken and will ask their colleagues to support anti-smart meter moves. The three were among more than 80 people at a protest meeting at Seaford Hall. Organised by Cr Aitken, attendees voted unanimously for a 10-point recommendation calling for the rollout of so-called smart meters to be stopped as well as related actions. Included in the recommendation was a call for the councils to support the anti-meter movement. Cr Aitken said he would take the meeting’s concerns to full council later this month. Cr Eustace confirmed to The Times he and Cr Rodgers would do the same thing at the next meeting of their council. The Seaford meeting was the latest in a battle between consumers versus the state government and the five power retailers, Powercor Australia, SP Ausnet, United Energy Distribution, Citipower, and Jemena. The key objection to smart meters is the claim of people feeling ill due to electromagnetic emissions caused by the meters sending data via a pulse to a power company. Cr Aitken said activists in the United Kingdom had forced the government to make installation of smart meters voluntary instead of compulsory as it was in Victoria. He said states in the United States and the Netherlands also were considering an opt-in system. Cr Aitken said the meeting called for the government to halt the rollout until there had been a full investigation into community concerns. Other elements of the recommendation are:

 Householders should have the right to refuse smart meters.  Remove smart meters from homes where people were experiencing health problems caused by the meters.  Premier Ted Baillieu and Minister for Energy Michael O’Brien to meet with representatives of the anti-smart meter movement.  An investigation into the alleged bullying of householders by smart meter installers.  The meeting also called for action to remove the GST from electricity and gas bills. On 31 July, Energy Safe Victoria released its final report on the safety of smart meters, but Stop Smart Meters Australia said there had been no attempt to address the problem of the health impacts of smart meters. “The issue of possible health effects received little mention in the report, simply concluded the subject was ‘beyond the detailed scope’ of the report and emissions were ‘well below the safe levels set by ARPANSA’.” The government and power companies have stated the meters, which will be installed in all Victorian homes and businesses by the end of 2013, were compliant with the electromagnetic exposure limits developed by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency. Stop Smart Meters says ARPANSA standards are only designed for protection against immediate thermal hazards (tissue heating) at high intensity exposures and not against cumulative biological effects from low intensity exposures. Don Maisch, a spokesman for Stop Smart Meters, said: “People at Energy Safe Victoria have obviously decided the health issue is in the too-hard basket and better left ignored. He said ESV had not adequately addressed concerns in its final report.

Subdivide and conquer

Permission to come aboard

YOU could realise the full potential of this property by subdividing (STCA) the 765-square metre block and put a second rental earner on the title or just simply enjoy what is a very neat property ideal for first home buyers. Positioned at the front of the block, the threebedroom, brick-veneer home had been recently renovated and includes timber floors in the dining area and a new upright electric stove in the kitchen. The separate lounge has been recarpeted and in the bathroom is a new frameless shower. The block is well-fenced and has a neat paved area at the rear with a landscaped garden area and garden shed. For investors, the property shows a good return of $275 a week.

A STRONG nautical theme emanates from this classic Australian weekender. Gleaming polished rails and timbers give you a sense of patrolling the deck of your own ship and with the waters of Port Phillip Bay about 750 metres away, the evening sounds of waves only add to the sensation. Presented in excellent condition, the home is suitable for extended families with a self-contained area downstairs consisting of a single bedroom, bathroom and kitchen. Upstairs are three more bedrooms and a second bathroom decked out with tiles and a sea-blue colour scheme. The main living area has a steepled, pine-lined ceiling with exposed beams that heighten the sense of space, and a fantastic galley-style kitchen has an island bench with stone benchtops and underbench oven. For all the vehicles, both land and water-based, there is a four-car garage.

Revamped Retro Classic

An Opportunity Not To Ignore

The current owners have invested heavily on a total internal makeover for this home and the results are a real eye opener. A dash of nostalgia blended beautifully with a full serve of modern. Crisp paintwork, highly polished timber floors, quality tiling and much much more. It is now a very pleasing home indeed. Sitting on a lovely level block of 920m2 (approx) with a large outdoor entertaining area and separate workshop/games room this is the ultimate low maintenance holiday home. You can walk to the beach with ease (800m approx) and enjoy all that the Peninsula has to offer. A property that looks good, feels right and best of all is still super affordable.

A brilliant location only 150mts from the beach on a magic corner block of approx 1000sqmts (1/4 acre) with a renovated 3 bedroom brick veneer home and garage. The home presents very well and is perfect for permanent living, rental purposes or holiday home duties. All the bedrooms are a good size, the kitchen has been upgraded, the timber floors polished and the tiling replaced throughout. Due to the quality of the location any extension carried out should enhance the value considerably and would have little chance to invest in gilt edged real estate at a bargain basement price. With the Frankston Bypass expected to relieve the traffic tensions to the Peninsula, property prices are expected to rise sharply.

Healthy Living

Improve digestion By Lyndy Saltmarsh Is your digestive system not feeling quite right? DO you only pay attention to your digestive system when there is a problem? Maybe after you have eaten a large meal and feel bloated? Or perhaps you pay attention to your digestive system only when you have had changes in bowel movements, like diarrhoea or constipation? If this is the case, some digestive support in the form of a probiotic could be useful. Probiotics are â&#x20AC;&#x153;good bacteriaâ&#x20AC;? that help keep your digestive system in good condition. Digestive problems are often a sign that the bacteria in your digestive system are out of balance, and since your digestive system is the centre of health, it is extremely important that you keep it healthy. Did you know? You have more than 400 species of good bacteria inside your digestive system and they weigh up to 3kg. In fact, you have more bacteria living inside you than you have cells in your entire body. There are about 100 trillion bacteria in your digestive system, the vast majority of which live in the bowel. The balance of all these bacteria is essential for your health and wellbeing. Good bacteria can protect you The digestive system is in constant contact with the outside environment through the food you eat. In your lifetime, you will eat about 22 tonnes of food. The food and the fluids you consume could be carrying potential pathogens that could make you sick. Good bacteria can protect people from getting sick from these potential pathogens. Balance is essential for health It is essential for health and wellbeing that the bacteria, or flora, in the digestive system is kept in a healthy balance. An imbalance of flora within the digestive system can lead to many common symptoms.

How do good bacteria keep you healthy? Good bacteria aid in: ď Ž Breaking down food and producing nutrients. ď Ž Absorption of nutrients. ď Ž Maintaining the motility of the digestive tract, ensuring good bowel motions. ď Ž Inhibiting the growth of bad bacteria. ď Ž Maintaining a healthy immune system. ď Ž Preventing chronic disease Not all probiotics are created equal Maintaining good bowel flora is an important key to maintaining health and wellbeing. Good bowel flora can be achieved by taking probiotics. However, not all probiotics are the same and it is important to use the right probiotic for you. At renewyou wellness centre we will advise the right probiotic for your health needs. The digestive system is the centre of health, so come in today and let us help you to achieve optimal health and wellbeing by restoring your digestive health. Call renewyou wellness centre on 9787 2290.

Strength training for fitness, health and vitality WORKING muscles not only builds bones but also lowers blood pressure and artery-clogging cholesterol. It can help regulate insulin levels, reduce stress, control depression and even help ward off dementia. A Curves 30-minute complete workout uses hydraulic-resistance, strength-training machines specially designed for women. They allow you to tone muscles and get a great cardiovascular workout at the same time. Hydraulic machines allow you to push forward with one muscle group and pull back with the opposing muscles. Gravity doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help or hinder your workout the way it does with free weights and traditional weight-resistance machines. As you push and

pull opposing muscle groups, the intensity easily elevates and sustains your target heart rate and works muscles symmetrically. Another bonus of hydraulic-resistance machines is there are no weight stacks to manage so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need strong muscles to start out. The Curves workout provides a strength-training program that anyone can do safely, while providing resistance and intensity levels that will challenge those who are already fit. Call Curves on the Bay, Rosebud, for a free tour and fitness assessment on 5982 0035 or drop in to the centre at 875 Point Nepean Road, Rosebud.

Yoga runs in the family at The Yoga House YOGA is great as physical exercise and at the same time relaxing for the mind. Benefits include toning the body, stretching muscles, creating good posture, working core muscles, helping with recovery and rehabilitation, and calming the mind. Yoga has been adopted by many athletes and sporting codes such as the AFL, rugby and surfers, just to name a few, as an addition to their usual training. Yoga assists top athletes to stretch out, but also helps to clear and focus the mind on the task ahead. The Yoga House provides yoga classes suitable for all levels – beginners to advanced. The style taught is Hatha yoga in a Vinyasa style. The Yoga House is the only internationally accredited yoga school on the Mornington Peninsula. It offers the 200-hour Teacher Training Course, accredited through Yoga Alliance.

The Yoga House started in Mt Eliza in 2009 and a second studio opened in Rosebud in August. The Yoga House has designed a clothing range that is comfortable leisure wear made with yoga in mind. It is for sale at both studios and soon will be available online. Anna Jorgensen, owner and founder of the studio, comes from Denmark and a family of yogis – her sister is a yoga teacher and her husband runs a busy yoga school in Denmark and is the author of three Danish yoga books. She loves providing classes to the yoga community on the Mornington Peninsula. The Yoga House supports the Yoga Aid Challenge, a charity event on 9 September at Toorak College from 9.30-11.30am where yogis from all over the world will practice yoga in relay starting in Los Angeles and finishing in Sydney.

Take a better view of health with Hemaview HEMAVIEW is a form of live blood screening, which can show changes in the blood immediately. Using Hemaview enables analysis of the size, shape and ratios of the red cells, white cells and platelets in the blood.

... and other short stories

Terminal decline of quality penmanship By Stuart McCullough IT’S tragic, really. For years, my handwriting has been in a state of ever-increasing decay. Like an ancient pullover, it has been gradually unravelling until all that remains is a single, indecipherable thread. The tragedy of my handwriting is not a story of a single minute but of a toll taken over several decades. It started out as terrible from which point it has steadily devolved. To all my primary school teachers, I’d like to offer you the sincerest of apologies. The hours you spent at the blunt end of the blackboard should not have been in vain. That my body should seemingly reject all that I ever learned about cursive script is not anyone’s fault to speak of. Not even my own. I was never a delinquent. At school I dutifully copied down the patterns on the blackboard into my exercise book, developing a style of handwriting as unique as any fingerprint. I thought my handwriting was fine until I saw the crisp, clear lines that filled the pages of my schoolmates. Even then, my handwriting was lousy. But as poor as it was, it must still have been legible. I say that because all our examinations relied on handwritten answers and I managed to progress. If I’d had then the handwriting I have now, I’d still be in year 10. But why the decline? Technology is at least in part to blame. When I was at university, laptops began to pop up like toadstools in dark corners of the classroom. I believed these contrap-

tions to be little more than a passing fad and I dismissed them as vigorously as a paid-up member of the Flat Earth Society would a globe if he got the rough end of a Kris Kringle. Resistance, however, would prove to be futile. When I started working, I found myself at a computer for most of the day. Indeed, it’s now where I spend the best part of every day. My handwriting has suffered terribly as a result. It even resulted in a co-worker once referring to my script as “chicken scratch”. In truth, my handwriting never

stood a chance. It’s genetics, you see. The fact of the matter is that my family has long harboured a dark, tragic secret – we all have terrible, atrocious handwriting. Christmas at our house was always a scene of great confusion as we struggled to decipher which gift belonged to which child. Gift cards were frequently despatched down to the team at forensics for analysis to determine precisely who the intended recipient was. It resulted in the occasional perverse outcome, but we lived with the consequences nevertheless.

By some margin, the person with the worst handwriting in our family is my father. If my father’s handwriting was a typeface, it would, without doubt, be “Wing dings”. I have dozens of wonderful books, all of which are home to the most touching and thoughtful inscriptions from my father, none of which I can read. Many appear to have gone through a couple of cycles in the Enigma Machine. Technically, it may not be handwriting so much as it is a biro out for a walk. Birthday cards were encryptions that my brothers and sisters and I would spend hours trying to crack. Either he was wishing me a ‘happy birthday’ or the Germans were planning an air assault flying out of Dusseldorf. It was impossible to tell which. This, of course, is to say nothing of postcards. The reason for such silence is that the contents of postcards were as inscrutable as our faces as we attempted to read them. There is, however, an upside. Now that handwriting has largely fallen foul of the fickle breeze of fashion, the playing field has been levelled. Soon, generations of youngsters will look on a ballpoint pen with the same kind of screwed-up incredulity we’d give a horse and buggy or the decision to bring back It’s a Knockout. Handwriting will soon be all but irrelevant, preserved only by small groups of dedicated purists who meet in secret to practise their penmanship. Either that or it will be elevated to

the level of an exotic martial art and used by street gangs as a means of settling disputes. Finally, the pen would at long last truly be mightier than the sword. Frustrations would be resolved by way of a Caran d’Ache Fleur de Dentelle fountain pen and bickering by way of the Bic Biro. But in spite of these pocket-pens of resistance, handwriting would inevitably be declared an endangered species at risk of extinction. Let me say that it can’t come soon enough. Only then will I be free from the shame and attendant mockery that only truly terrible handwriting can inspire. No longer will Christmas in our house be the slightly random presentthrowing affair that so marred our childhood years, even if I still insist that the size seven ballet shoes I received when I was 15 were intended for me. (No one had the nerve to tell me otherwise. I seemed so pleased.) From now on, people will get the presents that were bought with them in mind. It can now be said that, if not the writing, then certainly the Times New Roman is on the wall for handwriting. It will not affect my father. He will continue to gift books with indecipherable inscriptions and send postcards, the contents of which remain a mystery. I can’t say I mind so much. There’s such a thing, I think, as making things too simple. Or, as my father would write, “too simple”.

Performance VETERAN Sydney music promoter Michael Chugg is bringing back the sounds of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s with another round of “Long Way to the Top”. It has been a decade since Long Way to the Top toured Australia to packed houses and the new 10th anniversary show will present 17 legends of Australian rock who will unite and entertain Melbourne, Sydney, Newcastle and Brisbane in October. Where the 2002 tour included music released up to the ’70s, the 10th anniversary show features bands that had massive hits in the ’80s, notably Mi-Sex, Dragon, Ian Moss and Noiseworks. The reunion tour will celebrate a major landmark in Australian live music and act as a performance legacy to one of its instigating producers, the late Billy Thorpe. “Thorpey was an icon, a talented bloke who had a huge impact on music in this country,” Michael Chugg said. Some of the artist appearing include Doug Parkinson, Brian Cadd, Jim Keays, Little Pattie, Lucky Starr, Col Joye, John Paul Young, Matt Taylor, Dinah Lee and Glenn Shorrock belting out hits like Needle in a Haystack, Little Ray of Sunshine, Dear Prudence, Are You Old Enough, I’ve Been Everywhere, Take Me Back, I Remember When I Was Young, and I Hate the Music. Parkinson gave us two top 10 hits in 1969 with Dear Prudence and the double A side Without You and Hair. Perth-born Brian Cadd was a member of Axiom, Bootleg Family Band and The Groop before having a successful solo career with chart hits Ginger Man, Let Go and Show Me the Way. Matt Taylor was a member of rock group Chain with charts hits Black & Blue and Judgement. In 1973 Matt had a hit with a solo single I Remember When I was Young from his successful Mushroom album Straight as a Die. The original tour was inspired by an ABC TV documentary series. When screened in August 2001, it became the most successful television series documentary ever on Australian music and when released on DVD, A Long Way to the Top became the highest-

selling Australian music DVD in history. Tickets for Long Way to the Top are on sale now for Rod Laver Arena on Friday 5 October. Bookings: 132 849. ABC/Universal has released a special edition three DVD/CD set compilation of live performances from the 2002 show Long Way to the Top 10th anniversary edition to coincide with the ticket sales. Extra backstage interview material and a hilarious behind the scenes documentary Rockumentary If You Will are included. The DVD includes Billy Thorpe, Axiom, Marcia Hines, Russell Morris, Masters Apprentices, Spectrum, Lobby Loyde, Chain, John Paul Young, Brian Cadd, and The Twilights.

Our friends at ABC/Universal Music have given us copies of these collectors CD/DVD to give away. Tell me on the back of an envelope together with your name and address who had the big hit Little Ray of Sunshine? Send your entry to Long Way to the Top competition, MP News, PO Box 588, Hastings 3915. *** BEN Mayne is passionate about country music and has started a monthly live country music show at the Hastings Club.

Artist of the Year Tracy Killeen will perform. The Gippsland-born singer won Gippsland singer of the year in the late 1990s before making the finals of the Tamworth Star Maker contest in 1999. The following year she attended the CMAA College of Country Music. Tracy is promoting her new single, Yodelling Blues, the latest single from her successful album Driver’s Seat. The album has produced hit singles Brave, Good Lies, Vera and Metrosexual Craze. Tracy will appear between 2-4pm at Hastings Club, 155 Marine Pde, Hastings. More details call 5979 1740. *** THE Queenscliff Music Festival from 23-25 November has a great line-up of artists including Mia Dyson, Missy Higgins, The Cat Empire, Something For Kate, Shannon Noll, King Cannons, Ian Moss, Baby Animals, Diesel, Jamie Pye, The Joe Kings, The Fauves, Jordie Lane and more.

Based on Fleming’s novel, the production will feature the music and lyrics by the Sherman brothers, composers of Mary Poppins. Originally written by Ian Fleming for his son, the much-loved 1968 film starred Dick Van Dyke and Sally Ann Howes and was a part of everybody’s childhood. Tickets on sale from 1300 795 012. *** UNIVERSAL Music has released Robert Plant & The Band of Joy: Live From the Artists Den. The show was filmed as a rare, intimate performance in Nashville.

buying, moving up north; nah. Cups of coffee, beautiful, untouchable women, bought a cap, a stubby holder, smiled at passersby. Friendly Queenslanders? Where? They were too busy eating like it was the last supper. Do I feel better now? Perhaps slightly more loved. *** SOMETIMES it is so difficult to get to the truth. Worse still, you run the risk of being “up yourself” if you truly believe you have the answers. In fact the only real truth is that human nature never changes. So we apply this to our current political landscape with Labor – leftwing, right-wing – and the Greens. Seemingly they all fight against a Coalition believing in the power of wealth and obviously supported by our daily newspapers, but no, they consistently fight against each other, thereby cutting their own throats. As Mark Twain once said, “The political and commercial morals of the United States are not merely food for laughter, they are an entire banquet”. Same here. *** TOOL is a fascinating word. I am the proud owner of a toolbox. When darling went to God eight years back, it became mine. It’s in my garage gather-

ing dust. Once only a worker was here doing a job and wanted a screwdriver. Another fascinating word. I felt like a tradie when I opened my toolbox and invited him to take his pick. As I type, one of my kitchen lights has gone, which can create a feeling of gloom at night. I’ll wait until someone drops by, someone who can comprehend the world of light globes, screwdrivers, washers and toolboxes. *** THE Olympic Games came and went with a whimper. Not being a Channel 9 viewer, I hardly noticed, other than Phil Cleary and others sounding off about the use of the Aboriginal flag at medal ceremonies or whatever. What a great idea. There could be some money in it for our indigenous compatriots, not that they would seek it; not their style. Shove the Union Jack and whack in the yellow red and black? Maybe even a touch of the African flag? Isn’t that where it all began? *** DANE Swan out for two matches for drinking “just six days before the next game?” Collingwood, like all clubs, adopts this puritanical (Gestapo) routine assuming wrongly that all personalities are the same. Swan apparently signed a players’ agreement (?) on an

alcohol ban. What would be the result of Swan refusing to sign? It’s surely more of a demand decided as always by the holier than thou, in this case a leadership group of young kids. They say it will be a good lesson; come back better for it. Platitudes abound. Why penalise the team, the supporters, Swan’s Brownlow chance? Why not a fine, or was it to make them look good, strong, upholders of selfrighteousness? Some people need to let off steam in the AFL pressure cooker. What happened to giving someone a second chance? For the good of the club be buggered. Would they have done it six days before the grand final? Maybe, they’re silly enough. Unbloody-believable. Wrong Eddie; ditto Nathan. *** I BOUGHT a plug-in device for my laptop. Pay extra to be shown how to use it or do it yourself by simply following the prompts; also advised that it would be online (as in ready to use) in two hours. No problemo. “Just turn it on and follow the instructions.” I arrived at Port Douglas three days later; nothing online. Then followed a 60-minute phone call on my mobile to get it up and running. To those 1.6 million extra Telstra mobile customers over the past 12 months – beware!

By Gary Turner The DVD contains concert footage including six Led Zeppelin classics. In 1967 he formed a group called Band of Joy with drummer John Bonham, before the two joined with guitarist Jimmy Page and bass player John Paul Jones the following year to form Led Zeppelin. Tracks include Black Dog, Houses of the Holy, Tangerine, Ramble On, Down to the Sea, Gallows Pole and more plus a bonus interview with Plant, documentary and gallery. We expect a new album from Plant next month. This will be Plant’s first solo album since 2007’s six-time Grammy Award-winning album Raising Sand, which sold more than 700,000 copies in the UK and three million worldwide. Happy birthday to Robert Plant who turns 64 this week. *** ALFRED Hitchcock’s Vertigo has been named the greatest film of all time in a leading critics’ poll, knocking Orson Welles’s Citizen Kane off the top spot for the first time in 50 years. More than 800 film critics and experts took part in the poll, which has been carried out every 10 years since 1952. The 1958 film starred James Stewart and Kim Novak as well as Dallas TV star Barbara Bel Geddes, Henry Jones and Tom Helmore. Some of my favourite classics include African Queen, To Sir With Love, Rebecca, Unforgiven, On the Waterfront; Gone With the Wind, and Life is a House. Check out great movie info www.

A Grain of Salt I WENT to Port Douglas for a week compliments of my son. It meant missing the Friday night RSL meat raffle but sometimes one needs to grasp life by the scruff of the neck. As a result of his generosity, I now humbly retract (temporarily) all those nasty inferences I’ve written over the past five years about children. We bonded apparently; nice, huh? Shucks. I spent the whole weekend prior to departure packing; lots of heavy thinking. One pair of sneakers (runners?) and my case was full. How do people manage it? And what if the pilot is drunk? Was it worth it? Well, two hours to the airport, a marathon walk to gate 26, a three and a half hour flight and another hour to our boutique apartment. Boutique is a big word up there; accommodation, hotels, cafes – all boutique. The Jetstar hostesses (or hosts) have obviously passed with honours in an advanced course on how to lose one’s personality. The RSL (called the Combined Services Club) was good value, atmosphere, prices. Lots of big eating, non-smoking Queenslanders with very big necks. A three-metre crocodile at the beach apparently, but no smoking allowed so I missed it. As is the fashion, I studied the real estate prices; way down; considered

Dales shock Sorrento, Buds into finals NEPEAN DIVISION By Toe Punt SORRENTO went into safe mode against Pearcedale at the 28-minute mark of the last quarter on Saturday and paid the ultimate price. The Sharks’ 16-year-old forward Jayden Tompkins kicked a goal well into time-on in the final term at Tractor Park to give the visitors a 10-point lead. Thinking there was just a minute or so left on the clock, the Sorrento brains trust decided to put some players “on ice”. Key contested ball winner Leigh Treeby was taken from the field, as was young ruckman Jon Croad. Pearcedale, which had been well and truly in the contest all afternoon, continued to push hard in the hope of winning its fourth game in the past five weeks. The Dales kicked three goals in three minutes to snatch the lead and take the ultimate scalp in the final game of the season. The final siren sounded at the 35-minute mark of the last quarter. The Sharks interchange crew got it horribly wrong. It was a wonderful way for the Panthers to finish the season, given their poor start. Ben Cadd re-signed with the club during the week, a major coup. Finishing the season in winning form also holds them in good stead to add to their list in the off-season. On Saturday, Daniel Murray also finished the season on a high, kicking

four goals, while star players Chris Fortnam, Pat Cadd and Tony Lester dominated. Also finishing the season with yet another outstanding performer was Dean Jannsen, who was named Pearcedale’s best yet again. The Sharks have been in average form since their massive win against Rye. After that game, Sorrento consolidated top spot on the ladder. It lost the following week against Dromana, did what it had to against Rosebud and has now lost to Pearcedale. In the second semi-final, the Sharks will regain Scott Cameron and Ben Schwarze. However, it does appear they will play finals without key forward Leigh Poholke, who busted a finger on Saturday. Frankston Bombers coach Tony Blackford will sit down with the club in the next couple of weeks to discuss his future after his side was bundled out of the finals race on Saturday by Crib Point. The equation was simple: Frankston needed to win to make the finals. Crib Point needed to win and hope Rosebud lost to Rye. The Magpies held up their end of the bargain, but Rosebud beat Rye and Crib Point’s tilt at a finals berth is over. Rye, Crib Point and Frankston all finished on nine wins, but the Demons boasted the best percentage, which saved them in the end. Blackford said he believed his club had underachieved since winning the flag in 2009.

“There are some circumstances that have contributed to this but at the end of the day, we haven’t improved on the field since winning the flag,” Blackford said. “I’ll sit down with the club and they can tell me the direction that they would like to go. “I love the place and wouldn’t go anywhere else now but the club is bigger than any individual and I want to see them succeed. “If that means I’m coach, then great, but if they want to go in a different direction, then I’ll understand that also.” The Bombers led Crib Point at half-time by 11 points after taking advantage of the wind in the second term. However, with the wind in the third, Crib Point was so much more desperate than their opponent and in a 10-minute onslaught blew Frankston away. The Magpies booted five goals in eight minutes and finished with six for the term to lead by 20 at three-quarter time. Coach Dave Lawson booted two goals in the third, Jon Flack booted a couple to finish with five for the game and the likes of Brad Davidson and James Cook took control. David Cook also was outstanding and Matt Sloper did a great job on Brad Wakeling. When the Pies kicked the first goal of the final term, the game was over. Dean Wagner played a cameo role in the ruck for the Bombers and did it to great effect, while Jay Page finished the season in great fashion, as did Ben Simmons.

Rosebud simply needed to beat Rye to play in the finals and played accordingly, smashing the Demons by 39 points. The home side booted five goals to one in the first quarter, which set up the win. All expected to see Rye’s Justin Van Unen boot the two goals he needed to get his 100th early in the clash., but it took until the third quarter for the entire Rye team to kick its second goal. Van Unen was kept goalless and will have to front up this week against the same side in the elimination final to reach the milestone. Brenton Davidge caused all sorts of headaches for the Demons, and Lachy Armstrong was back in the line-up and contributed three. Jake Jarman and Brenton Payne were outstanding for the Buds, and Rogers was solid across half-back. Matt McIndoes was Rye’s most productive player with two goals, and Sam Smith was a welcome return in the middle. Andrew Dean presented in attack and worked hard. The Buds have now beaten Rye twice this season. They would have to be confident this week, especially with Ben Schultz and Daniel Giarusso back in the side. Devon Meadows booted five goals in the third quarter to set up a great win over Red Hill. It’s been a tough season for Devon in its first year back in Nepean Division, but at least the club was finished the season on a high note. Andrew Oldmeadow was outstanding for the winners with two goals while Billy Hayes and Craig Thorne were impressive.

Tyabb finished the season on a high, while Somerville ended its season in poor fashion. The Yabbies were in control of the match for much of the afternoon with Ryan Jones dominating. Matty Dimkos and Ben Gould also were outstanding performers for the Yabbies. Jess Sutton finished in a blaze of glory for the Eagles, as did Emilio Bitters and Jon Edwards. Hastings got the upper hand in the mind games with Dromana, winning a low-scoring affair in ordinary conditions. The Blues made the most of their opportunities, while the visitors hit the post five times. The Tigers are likely to lose important defender Ryan Worn for a couple of weeks after he was reported by three umpires for a late hit on Mark Deveraux five minutes before the end of the game. Guy Martin played his second game of the season for the Blues and finished with three goals. Dromana coach Gavin Artico said the game was a mud fight. “Obviously Hastings was playing for the double chance and we didn’t have a lot to play for,” Artico said. “Hastings played the better footy for longer periods and deserved to win. “Hopefully we’ll play on a better deck this week, which is more conducive to top-of-the-table footy.” Mud, inglorious mud: Reserves player Jay Leyonhjelm, below, and his senior colleagues had to work hard in the goop at Hastings on the weekend in matches against Dromana.

Cancer call to arms

VOLUNTEERS collected funds for the Cancer Council’s Call to Arms program during the Rye versus Hastings match on Saturday week at Rye. The national program is designed to tackle men’s cancer and seeks to involve all clubs from all sporting codes. At Rye, players showed their support by wearing yellow armbands. The event was inspired by Rye senior player Matthew McIndoe, whose father is seriously ill from cancer.

Seagulls hang on, Dogs bite Kangas PENINSULA DIVISION By Toe Punt JUST one week to go! That’s all you can hear at Chelsea Football Club after a disastrous season got worse on Saturday. Chelsea was held goalless for three quarters against premiership fancy Karingal. At the beginning of the MPNFL season, Chelsea had done enough in the off-season to be involved in the same conversation that included YCW and Karingal. The Gulls were left wanting at the end of the 2011 season but had recruited well and were expecting great things. The season started well, too, with solid victories over EdithvaleAspendale and Pines. However, then Frankston YCW handed out a 78-point belting. The Gulls booted three goals that day. In round four Chelsea hammered Mornington, then came from behind to beat Bonbeach. They were four and one. The VCFL championships gave everyone a week off, but the Seagulls must have relaxed too much. They were smashed by Mt Eliza to the tune of 100 points before bouncing back against Seaford. At this stage, the Gulls were in the five with five wins and two losses.

Finals venues a worry LET’S cross our fingers that the MPNFL has a very good look at the state of the selected Nepean Division finals venues very early this week, before declaring them for the weekend. Both Pearcedale and Rosebud are not conducive to good finals footy. Sorrento was extremely unimpressed with the surface at Pearcedale, despite the fact they won’t have to play there. There was a video doing the rounds on Sunday of the Pearcedale surface. It’s not good enough for finals. There were many people complaining about Rosebud as a finals venue, too. Not just Rye players and officials either. Finals should be played on the best grounds available, re-

It was the round eight belting by Karingal that sent the club backward. It had a few injuries and a couple of players walked. Although they bounced back against Langwarrin the following week, and had a win against Edi-Asp on a Sunday, not a lot has gone right since then. On Saturday against the Bulls, it was embarrassing again, much like the round 12 game against YCW when Chelsea booted just one goal. Chelsea was below par on the weekend, but Karingal was mighty once again. The Bulls had 42 scoring shots to seven with Chris Hay booting 10 goals. “Cocky” now has 77 for the season and leads Scott Lockwood by six with just one round to go. This isn’t bad for a bloke who made a comeback halfway through last year after spending three seasons on the golf course. I think people forgot how good Chris Hay was – and is. He was a junior superstar who could have been anything. Now he is a star for his beloved Karingal club. His junior combatant, Michael Burke, finished with six goals and James Tyquin, Steve Charalambous and Troy Hoad continued their dominant form. Nigel Carmody, Robbie Lancaster and Sam Carpenter were brilliant for the Gulls. Carmody and Carpenter have been sensational all season.

gardless of their location. Rye and Sorrento clearly have the best venues, while Somerville isn’t too bad. A call was put in to new league boss Jeff Jones on Sunday, but at the time of going to print, there was still no word on the intentions of the league.

Jonesy notches 1000 SPEAKING of Jeff Jones, the Southern Umpires Association chairman and MPNFL CEO umpired his 1000th game on Saturday. Starting in 1982, Jones kicked off his career as a boundary umpire at age eight. He joined SUA in 1986 and umpired his first senior game at age 13. He has umpired nine Peninsula Division grand finals, three Nepean Division grand finals, two reserves grand finals and three Under-18 grand finals. He also umpired in the VFL/ AFL for four seasons in the 1990s.

Mornington was humiliated against Karingal in the previous round, beaten by 180 points, and needed to make a stand on Saturday and they did, leading for the large majority of the day to knock over Langwarrin. The Dogs had outstanding second and third quarters, booting nine goals to three to lead by 28 points at the final change. The Kangas came back in the last quarter, thanks to the run of Dylan Luxa and Sean Herdman, but still went down by 10 points. Chris Paxino booted five for the Dogs, and Michael Braay, Chris Baker and Byron Murphy dominated. Aaron Shaw finished with five for the Kangas and Michael Parker was also at his best. Mt Eliza had to fight tooth and nail to get the job done against Pines, winning by just nine points. The Redlegs trailed by 19 points at half-time and by two points at threequarter time. Pines had the wind in the last quarter. Thanks to Ben Landry with three goals and Dan Gormley and skipper Jimmy Clayton, the Redlegs kicked four goals to two in the last against the tide to claim a good win. Guy Hendry booted three, and Stevey Ryan, Luke Potts and Shaun White two each for the Pythons, while 17-yearold Rhys Chalkley was outstanding. Chris Guganovic and Dave Marguglio

were also fine contributors across four quarters for the Pythons. With a good finish to the season, Pines could be a great place next season and shouldn’t have too much trouble recruiting. Frankston YCW geared up for its tilt at Mt Eliza this weekend, easily accounting for Seaford to the tune of 54 points. The Stonecats restricted the Tigers to just one goal in the first half and three for the match. Daniel Smith and Kyle Hutchison booted three each for the winners, and Lew Roberts contributed two. Rhys Johnson and Adrian McIntyre were outstanding for YCW. For the Tigers, Aaron Walton finished with two goals and Luke Smith, Peter Azzopardi and Chris Irving worked tirelessly. Bonbeach will play finals in 2012, a magnificent effort. At the end of last season, the Sharks lost a coach and key players. This left only stalwarts who wanted to play in the red, white and black and they started over again. The best thing the club did was appoint Stevey Capp as coach. Many in football circles doubted his footy credentials. “Cappy” wasn’t a big name or a star MPNFL senior player. He is intelligent, passionate, a football educator and a leader of men. Look at the results. The Sharks have

been the most consistent side in the competition outside of the top three. They are now two games clear in fourth place with one round to go. The Sharks should beat Mornington, but it doesn’t matter if they don’t. Chelsea play Langwarrin at Langwarrin and Seaford play Edithvale at home. If the Gulls win and Tigers lose, Chelsea will play finals. If the Gulls win and Seaford wins, the Tigers’ percentage is far greater and they get in. Regardless, the Sharks are in and can fine-tune for their first final this week. On Saturday against the EdithvaleAspendale, Bonbeach had to fight. It was good preparation. The Eagles had a sensational third quarter and led by 11 points at the final change. Bonbeach kicked four goals to two points in the last quarter to win by 17. Daniel Smith, as always, led from the front, while Shaun Foster, Mark Tyrrell and Jackson Casey were outstanding. The Eagles were far from disgraced. Tim Mannix (three goals) and Beau Turner were outstanding, and Brad Tagg also finished with three in a classy performance. Pat Poore also made a welcome return and contributed well, assisting Nick Connellan in the big man department.

He umpired the 1992 TAC Cup grand final.

Buds bag ‘JV’. IT didn’t take Rosebud supporters long to stick the boots in to Justin Van Unen on Saturday night. Social media is instant and after the match between Rye and Rosebud where Van Unen failed to kick a goal, there was picture of him with a caption placed on Facebook. The picture had been taken from the MPNFL site and the caption read: “Missing. Missing between the hours of 2pm and 5pm @ Rosebud Football Oval.” Van Unen needed two goals to make it 100 for the season. He gets another chance against the Buds this week in the do or die elimination final. I’m not sure Rosebud coach Mark Hustwaite would have been overly excited about the Facebook posting.

Good year: Sam Carpenter, above, has had a good year but not so his team, Chelsea Seagulls, which has been up and down. The team was beaten comprehensively on Saturday by Karingal. To make the finals, the Gulls must win on Saturday and hope Edi-Asp beat Seaford. Pictures: Andrew Hurst Southern Peninsula News 23 August 2012



Cup day hits $1m in prizes NEXT yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mornington Cup will be the Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first regional race day to offer $1 million or more in prizemoney. From 2013, cup contestants will be racing for a share of $350,000 as well as ballot exemption from the BMW Caulfield Cup later that year. Melbourne Racing Club chairman Mike Symons said the Mornington Cup was now â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most important on the national racing calendar to be held outside a metropolitan areaâ&#x20AC;?. The club also announced a $50,000 increase on the cupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total prize pool. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The prizemoney boost further indicates the benefit of the amalgamation of the Melbourne and Mornington clubs, and comes in the wake of the Australian Pattern Committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation that the $250,000 Inglis Premier â&#x20AC;&#x201C; part of the Mornington Cup day undercard and won this year by Snitzerland en route to placing in the Golden Slipper â&#x20AC;&#x201C; be granted restricted listed status,â&#x20AC;? Mr Symons said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Melbourne Racing Club is underpinned by a desire to provide our members and stakeholders, as well as participants and punters, with unparalleled standards in our racing product and associated services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The increase in prizemoney for the Centrebet Mornington Cup, and across the entire day, serves to satisfy that desire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should also make the cup, notwithstanding the BMW Caulfield

Cup ballot exemption, an even more appealing race for trainers across the country, where the richest country cups peak at around half of the Mornington Cup in prizemoney value.â&#x20AC;? Mr Symons said the prize offered by the cup â&#x20AC;&#x153;throws out a real challenge to the strong stables from interstate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Chris Waller, Gai Waterhouse and company â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to come and race at Morningtonâ&#x20AC;?. Mornington Racing Club advisory group chairman Tony Hancy said the Mornington course â&#x20AC;&#x153;is now considered by many to be the Mornington Peninsulaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier entertainment venueâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The consequences of this not only benefit the club and our members, sponsors and race day guests, but also the community and commercial sector of the wider peninsula.â&#x20AC;? Mornington Cup day is one of seven metropolitan-standard race meetings being held at Mornington in season 2012-13.

Trackside attraction: Melbourne Racing Club hopes increased prizemoney will lure to trainers to the Mornington Cup.

Victoria win footy title with Vickiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help YEAR 10 student Vicki Sanford was one of 25 girls representing the Victorian 16 and under team at the School Sports National Football carnival in Adelaide last month. The carnival include boys under 12 and under 15 competitions as well as the girls. All three competitions were won by Victorian teams.

FRANKSTON VFL DOLPHINS ROUND 22 Saturday 25th August Vs Northern Blues Dev League: 11am Seniors: 2pm PLAYED AT VISY PARK Come watch the Dolphins play!


Southern Swans take 2012 premiership cup By A Cobb SOUTHERN Peninsula Swans have won the grand final against Bendigo Victory at St Kilda by 54 points in a convincing display of team football. While the Swans’ midfield dominated the second half of the game, it was the uncompromising defence that set up the win in the first term. The strong breeze favoured Bendigo early but the Swans’ back line, led by Shaun Victor and Mick Matthews, absorbed early pressure and continually frustrated the Bendigo forwards. Jason Taylor got a goal for the Swans into the breeze and the hard-running Dale Perkins drilled another on the bell, to give the side a five-point lead. Dowling’s early goal in the second set the Swans in motion and Cooper started to have an influence. In 10 minutes, Cooper had five possessions and set up goals for Taylor and Perkins.

After weeks of poor goalkicking, the Swans realised the importance of conversion and the scoreboard pressure on Bendigo started to hurt. The discipline of the Swans was admirable, despite being on the receiving end of some controversial decisions. The team concentrated on the game plan, “buttoned up and let the eyes do the talking”, in difficult situations. Discipline in finals is vital and the Swans had received the message about restraint over umpiring decisions. Harvey at centre half-back provided great drive, and Harrington, Cullen and Perkins began to control the midfield. The rotations were effective and Riddock began to gather kicks and set up forward thrusts. The Swans’ second term shattered the confidence of Bendigo. The third quarter was crucial and the Swans played with great confidence. The margin widened in the third as

Bendigo began to tire and the Swans’ midfielders took control. Riddock kicked two and Cooper and Perkins one each. The Swans’ goal and field kicking were the best for the season. At three-quarter time, co-coach Wayne Pattison told his men to finish off the job and the team, sensing a flag, played safe and sure football. Ledwidge got his first for the game and when Taylor kicked his third, the Swans were home. The siren sounded and the scenes of jubilation indicated how much the win had meant. In 1973, living legend Ron Barassi wrote: “If you win a semi or better still

a flag, it makes every crunching tackle, muscle-aching run and indeed every second worthwhile.” Nothing has changed. To win a grand final in every level of our great national game demands training, responsibility, self-sacrifice and, above all, collective effort. Southern Peninsula Swans 12.10-82 d Bendigo Victory 4.4-28 Goals: Taylor 3, Perkins 3, Cooper 2, Riddock 2, Ledwidge1, Dowling 1. Best: Perkins, Harrington, Cooper, Harvey, Riddock, Matthews, Victor, Taylor, Cullen, Leonard, Whelan. 2012 Reclink Medal: John Riddock.
