Council rates set to rise 5.9% BY ALECIA PINNER

‘While Frankston City is one of six central activity areas designated by the state government to become a hub for people, jobs and services our future is not without its challenges.’ — Sandra Mayer

FRANKSTON Council plans to raise rates 5.9 per cent in the coming financial year. Mayor Sandra Mayer said that when producing the draft budget the council struggled to keep rates at a minimum while maintaining the same level of service with a growing population. ‘‘While Frankston City is one of six central activity areas designated by the state government to become a hub for people, jobs and services our future is not without its challenges. ‘‘This level [of rates increase] allows us to maintain existing service levels, fund a number of new initiatives and continue to allocate additional funds to renew our infrastructure.’’ Cr Mayer said the council had concentrated on attracting investment to central Frankston, creating job opportunities, improving perception of the city with better streetscapes and a reduction in antisocial behaviour, protecting the environment, tip access and improving

transport connections. ‘‘This year we will welcome South East Water as they begin construction on their new headquarters. We will deliver a world-class $50 million regional aquatic centre, see the construction of the $18.5 million trade training centre and begin work to redevelop the Long Island Precinct and Frankston Yacht Club.’’ If the budget is carried, waste charges will rise 5 per cent. The document includes a proposed capital works budget of $62.19 million and loan borrowings of $29.84 million. About $15.5 million will be invested in maintaining and renewing existing community assets such as

Coming soon An artist’s impression of the aquasphere family raft ride and constrictor slide, just two of the attractions Frankston residents will be able to try out when the $49.7 million Frankston Regional Aquatic Centre opens in a year. The council says the raft ride will be the first of its kind in the world, complete with high speed twists and drops, fullyenclosed spheres with light and sound shows and 90-degree corners. The constrictor slide is a current feature attraction at Wet ‘n’ Wild on the Gold Coast. Frankston mayor Sandra Mayer said: “We are incredibly thrilled to unveil the world’s first aquasphere at our centre and know it will be an outstanding attraction.’’

Doors & Installations

buildings, parks, footpaths and drains. About $11.2 million will be invested in new and upgrade capital works and $35.4 million spent finalising the development of the aquatic centre. The council will also spend $1.86 million on the Carrum Downs Early Learning and Care Centre and $1.08 million improving air conditioning at the civic centre. The draft budget is on display at the civic centre and can be viewed on frankston.vic.gov.au, by clicking the ‘have your say’ link. The council will accept submissions until Thursday, July 11 and the budget will be officially adopted on July 24.

Re: Motorised bicycles crackdown in Frankston Forty-five kilometres per hour or 75km/h makes little difference when they ride on the footpath and run into you, or when a car backs out of the driveway and they hit it. Either way, someone may get killed. They are illegal, so there is no excuse to own one. Reality Check (via web)

The fast pushbikes are in Seaford as well. And yes, the speeds at which they travel are alarming. And because they are not registered vehicles they are impossible to identify. Do we simply have to wait until someone is injured by one of these things before something is done about them? Carol (via web)

Re: Shaw says MPs pay rise justified My comments in your article (4/6/13) have been reported out of context. The point I made in my speech was that members of parliament should not be setting their own salary levels or remuneration but that it ought to be set by an independent arbiter. This is a worthy debate to be had and it is disappointing that my position has been reported by The

Age and the Weekly in such an inflammatory way. My website contains radio interviews I gave in relation this matter and anyone interested is welcome to read my speech which is available online in the Victorian Parliament Hansard. Geoff Shaw, Frankston MP

It’s pretty rich that Geoff Shaw should compare his pay rate to someone else in another state doing a similar job and say they are ‘‘just as worthy’’ but paramedics in his own state and suburb get paid ridiculously lowered rates then their colleagues interstate. Sick of pollies (via web)

Re: Anguish for mother as she ‘loses’ her son My heart breaks for Lucy, and for Jack. The government and society must do better to support the families of people with disabilities, and particularly for the people who have the disabilities. Karen (via web)

Re: Beating odds, living life to the fullest I’ve read many articles on this issue, all which focus

Puppy carers needed!

on males with disability. It’s a shame there aren’t more male sex workers who will work with women with disabilities. Whenever the topic is discussed it always focuses on men and seems to forget that women with disabilities have sexual needs also. It’s almost a second thought for women, but a given that males need it. Jo (via web)

Re: Woodland estate subdivision bid divides Mt Eliza neighbourhood Is it safe to assume that if property owners are advised of planning scheme amendments and they do not make a submission or response, then they may not be against the proposed changes? Our family agreed with the changes and didn’t do anything. We wish to keep our 2/3-acre block as it is, so are happy for these changes. It appears to me that these people pushing their views are not trained planners (not that they get it right all the time) and those pushing to subdivide are looking to make a dollar. The value of our property will only increase when it becomes too much for us to handle. Bring it on I say. Well done to everyone involved. Betty Hamilton (via web)

Take care of a puppy and help change a life… Being a Seeing Eye Dog puppy carer is possibly the most enjoyable way to volunteer. Not only do you get to experience the joy of looking after an adorable puppy for about 12 months, without any of the associated costs – you will also enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you are assisting someone who is blind to live the life they choose. Seeing Eye Dogs Australia is urgently in need of loving homes for puppies in your area.

Ambos put pressure on Frankston MP BY ALECIA PINNER FRANKSTON and Mornington Peninsula paramedics rallied outside Frankston MP Geoff Shaw’s office last Tuesday as part of their campaign for better pay and conditions. Paramedic Danny Hill said Ambulance Employees Association union representatives and Frankston paramedics had written to Mr Shaw to raise awareness of their pay dispute with the state government and ask for a time to sit and discuss their concerns. ‘‘He has never responded to any of this correspondence, so we took the message to him.’’ Mr Hill said paramedics felt the government expected them to sacrifice sick and injury pay when they were often sick due to exposure to illness or injury on the job. ‘‘We are being expected to pay for our own small, 2.5 per cent pay rise per year by giving up conditions. ‘‘We think they’re taking a hard line. Geoff Shaw in particular is happy to stand up and say that politicians deserve more pay but we think it is a double standard.’’

Frankston paramedic David Tull said ambulances were waiting longer at Frankston Hospital than any other emergency ward in Victoria. ‘‘Ramping times in Frankston are the longest in the state and Geoff Shaw’s inactivity on the issue isn’t good enough. ‘‘Response times to code 1 emergencies are now more than 20 minutes. The whole health system is struggling with rising demand.’’ Mr Tull said paramedics had asked the premier for an independent umpire to assess their wages in April last year, but their request was denied. ‘‘Our wages are also 30 per cent lower than other states. ‘‘Fifteen hundred paramedics plan on leaving the job in the next five years. We are working so much overtime to make ends meet, it is taking its toll on our families.’’ Mr Shaw told the Weekly the paramedics did not request anything of him or his staff during their rally. ‘‘A couple came into the office, after the rally had dispersed, to drop off a couple of flyers. That was it,’’ Mr Shaw said.

Making a stand: Danny Hill leads a protest of local paramedics outside Geoff Shaw’s office. Mr Hill said protesters did not want to intimidate Mr Shaw’s staff, so dropped in flyers and hoped for a response to their letters.

Council refuses to pay for ‘yes’ vote BY ALECIA PINNER FRANKSTON Council has knocked back a request from the Municipal Association of Victoria to contribute $41,796 to its ‘yes’ campaign to have local government recognised in the Australian constitution. Although supporting the move in principle, councillors unanimously voted not to contribute financially to the campaign on the grounds the council was not in a financial position to do so. Councillors resolved to write to Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell to express ‘‘grave disappointment’’ at the state government’s lack of support of a referendum on constitutional recognition of local government. On September 14, the day of the federal election, voters will also be asked if local governments should be constitutionalised. The cost of the Australia-wide campaign is $10 million, $2 million of which the

MAV has asked local councils to contribute. Frankston mayor Sandra Mayer said the referendum was about securing the future payment of federal funds for local services and infrastructure. ‘‘Its goal is to guarantee what already occurs; that direct federal funding to our community for sporting clubs, libraries, cultural facilities, swimming pools and local road maintenance and upgrades can continue.’’ She said an amendment to the constitution would legitimise direct federal funding, which had occurred for more than a decade under Liberal and Labor governments. ‘‘It is a rare opportunity to strengthen our financial future by voting yes to cement the existing relationship between federal and local government. ‘‘I urge people to use the power they have at the ballot box to say yes to this referendum for the benefits that it will continue to bring to our community.’’

APART from building his own distinguished career, Mt Eliza surgeon Associate Professor Ian McInnes has trained and inspired budding surgeons locally and across Victoria. Some of these surgeons from Frankston Hospital, The Alfred hospital and Broken Hill are retiring after impressive careers and Associate Professor McInnes is receiving recognition for his service to medical surgery. He was named a recipient of the Medal of the Order of Australia in the Queen’s Birthday Honours on Monday. Associate Professor McInnes trained as a doctor and then a surgeon, graduating in 1955. He then travelled to England where he completed a fellowship at the Royal College of Surgeons and returned to Australia three years later as junior consultant at The Alfred. Associate Professor McInnes worked as a general surgeon for the next 40 years at The Alfred in roles including head of the gastrointestinal unit, supervisor of surgical training, director of postgraduate studies, dean of the clinical school and chairman of the division of surgery.

In the 1960s, Associate Professor McInnes and his wife Ann moved to Mt Eliza and he took a job at Frankston Hospital and opened a practice. ‘‘It was a young hospital then, it was great. We didn’t terribly like the city,’’ he said. Eventually the passionate surgeon was promoted to director of general surgery at Frankston Hospital and then to the Frankston Hospital board. He worked on getting junior medical staff to Frankston, through his connection to The Alfred. ‘‘We became affiliated with Monash University and I helped set up an undergraduate clinical school in the early 1980s,’’ Associate Professor McInnes said, adding that it was one of his proudest achievements. ‘‘I’ve always believed and been interested in training. ‘‘It is nice to be a training hospital. Now the trainees are retiring.’’ Associate Professor McInnes insisted that all those who worked with and supported him deserved credit for the award. ‘‘I feel very humbled by it. ‘‘I never expected it and I feel as though there have been many other people involved.

Steady hand: Ian McInnes at his Frankston rooms with a 60-year-old ear thermometer that he still uses. Picture: Michael Dodge ‘‘It’s not about me, it’s about all of the people who support you. ‘‘Your wife and family suffer with all of the time you spend.’’

Honours. A modest Mr Harper said he was inspired to help in 2002 when he listened to the stories of another priest who had visited from Timor Leste. ‘‘He said, our country has nothing, Indonesia has taken everything. They even took all the desks in the classrooms and beds and equipment from the hospital [and] left the country with no food or facilities. ‘‘So I put my hand up; wouldn’t everybody do the same? I’m ambivalent about it [the award]. Accolades and praise for what is being done aren’t the important part of the journey. What brings real joy and happiness is the journey, filling the container and feeding the children.’’ Among his many volunteering efforts, Mr Harper initiated a Melbourne Citymission evening meal program in Frankston and supported the St Paul’s Anglican Church breakfast program. For more information or to donate, visit lesharper.com.au.

BY ALECIA PINNER WITH the generous assistance of Mornington Peninsula residents, Frankston’s Les Harper is feeding 300 Timor Leste children in need every day. Mr Harper is a founding member of the Helping East Timor project which has sent 26 shipping containers of food, including rice, lentils and sugar, to the district of Laga. The project has also brought about the delivery of school furniture, books, computers and clothing to schools, dental clinics, orphanages and families. Father Manuel Ximenes last week made the journey from Timor Leste to the St Thomas More Catholic Church in Mt Eliza to thank Mr Harper and the Mornington Peninsula community for their help. ‘‘The food stuff has been donated by people from the Mornington Peninsula,’’ said Mr Harper, who has also played an important role in building six schools in Timor Leste. ‘‘We are halfway through [building] the seventh. We’ve given ourselves a target of two [schools] a year.’’ Mr Harper received a Medal of the Order of Australia on Monday in the Queen’s Birthday

Back from brink adds perspective BY DANIELLE McFARLAND BONBEACH artist Michelle Endersby has a new outlook on life after a near-death experience. Endersby was unaware she was suffering from a life-threatening medical condition until she suddenly collapsed. ‘‘I was at home and I got a very strong headache at the back of my head and I knew something wasn���t right. I have had headaches before but nothing like this and I told my husband that something was wrong. It all happened very quickly and I was paralysed on one side.’’ Endersby was rushed to Monash Hospital and the doctors found a blood vessel had ruptured inside her brain. Emergency surgery was performed to remove a clot the size of a tennis ball. She said the medical emergency changed her life and strengthened her career as an artist. Awakening from a coma that lasted for about six days, she had an inspirational vision. ‘‘I had a vision of a beautiful garden that has been the inspiration behind my current exhibition, The Garden of Abundance. ‘‘My new work has a particular glow to it. The way I paint is different now, I have more guidance and am inspired by my experiences. ‘‘I want to paint to show people beautiful and wonderful things of the world. The incident has made me see the world through different eyes. I see beauty in everything and I want to share that with everyone. ‘‘I used to be somewhat afraid with my paintings before, afraid to express my entire self because I was scared of what people thought. But now I am not afraid, I feel like I’ve been given a second chance.’’ Endersby feels overwhelmed by the support she has received from family, friends and

Christie of the Antarctic: Christie Sinclair has the opportunity to go an expedition to the Antarctic. Picture: Michael Dodge

At Cherry Lane we provide: • Nutritious home cooked meals that are made on the premises • Nappies • Sunscreen • Play based curriculum • Large outdoor yards with gardens and chickens • Incursions

Trip to break the ice CHRISTIE Sinclair is off on the expedition of a lifetime — with a little help from her friends. The 25 year old of Mt Eliza is one of just 30 people worldwide selected as an Antarctic Youth Ambassador for 2014, and hopes to travel to the southern most continent for a four-week expedition with environmental organisation 2041. It was founded by polar explorer, environmental leader and public speaker Robert Swan, the first person to walk to the north and south poles. He chose the name because in the year 2041 the Protocol on Environmental Protection to the Antarctic Treaty can be modified or amended and the organisation’s aim is to ensure the treaty’s protection continues. Swan has dedicated his life to the preservation of Antarctica by the promotion of recycling, renewable energy and sustainability to combat the effects of climate change, and hopes to spread the word through 2041 ambassadors. Participants in the 2014 expedition will travel to Ushuaia, Argentina, before

embarking on a sea voyage to base camp on King George Island. ‘‘As a young journalist and travel writer, one of my projects will focus on communicating this message to the wider community. I would love to write a book about my experience and how people can make simple changes to help live a more sustainable life,’’ Ms Sinclair said ‘‘Most of all I am looking forward to collaborating with others on the trip who, I hope, share similar goals and passions as me.’’ Ms Sinclair is hoping to find sponsors to help her raise $22,000 for the trip, which needs to be paid in three months. ‘‘This is the craziest thing I have ever done, but I am determined to make a difference. The scope of the trip and how I choose to use this experience afterwards is really limitless, and I am so excited and honoured to be representing Australia, and the Mornington Peninsula, in this global expedition.’’ Potential sponsors can contact Ms Sinclair at christie.sinclair@hotmail.com or on 0433 919 175.

INBRIEF Police have arrested a 19-year-old Crib Point man for his role in a series of burglaries at schools around Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula. Detective Senior Constable James Keegan said laptop computers and tablets were stolen during the overnight burglaries which took place over the past two months. ‘‘Some schools were hit more than once,’’ he said. Investigations are ongoing.

Teen robbed at bus stop An 18-year-old teenager was waiting at a bus stop in Frankston North on May 30 when she was robbed by two men. Detective Senior Constable Craig Clover said the teen was waiting in Monterey Boulevard to catch a bus to school at 6.30am when she was approached by the pair. ‘‘One of the men put a knife to her face, threatened her and took her school bag, her handbag and ran off,’’ he said. ‘‘She recovered her backpack.’’ Police last Tuesday arrested a 27-year-old Frankston South man in relation to the robbery. Police are appealing for witnesses. The other man is described as Caucasian, aged about 20, of skinny build and with brown hair. Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Crime on the increase Victoria Police crime statistics released last month showed drug-related crime rose more than 56 per

cent. Crimes against the person — which includes rape, sex offences, robbery, assault and abduction — jumped 21 per cent, theft of motor vehicles was up 14.3 per cent, and residential burglaries rose 10 per cent. Inspector Jeff Millar said a 22.7 per cent increase in assaults — up from 1295 to 1589 — was of particular concern and an issue that affected Frankston more than most areas. ‘‘In the past few years we have greatly reduced the number of assaults occurring in and around licensed premises. However, assaults are still more likely to occur between people who know each other and this is reflected in the number of family violence-related assaults. Increased reporting of family violence is a positive sign.’’

The two-kilometre walk, to mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, will start at Keast Park, Carrum, at 10am and finish at the Seaford Community Centre in Station Street, where there will then be activities including a balloon-releasing ceremony. Guest speakers will include Frankston City North West Ward councillor Rebekah Spelman, a Senior Rights Victoria representative and a local Aboriginal elder. A courtesy bus will take walkers back to Keast Park. Bookings essential to 9784 1046 or 9784 1943.

Meet Nathaniel, 18 months old and already onto the second of his nine lives. Nathaniel, pictured with Krystal Mornson, was picked up last month — skinny, homeless and badly burned — and taken to the RSPCA shelter in Pearcedale. He’s now well on the road to recovery and one of 37 adult cats at the shelter up for adoption. Supervisor Alice Currey said the shelter was keen to find homes for the adult cats before the expected influx of kittens in spring. ‘‘We take care to match the right cat with the right owner, depending on whether they have young children or the cats will be kept indoors.’’ Kittens cost $140, cats aged over four months cost $85 and ‘senior’ cats, aged over seven, are free. The shelter, at 1030 Robinsons Road, is open for adoptions from 10am-4pm daily.

FEATURESTORY

A multitude of sins Victims of child sexual abuse in government and church institutions have finally been given the chance to tell their stories at two major inquiries. LEE OPITZ looks at two men’s experiences at a Mt Eliza boys’ home in the 1960s. ore than 5000 victims of child sexual abuse in institutions, or those who bore witness or knew of cover-ups of abuse in institutions, are expected to give evidence to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse over the next year. While an interim report is expected in June next year, it will be years before the inquiry is complete. But no matter how long it takes, victims say it is time that those who abused them, and through their silence those who abandoned them, are brought to justice. ‘‘There is a quote that I heard somewhere: ‘Go forth, speak the truth, and fear nobody’. And that’s what I have to do,’’ says Len, a victim of institutional abuse in the 1960s and ’70s. ‘‘I will probably be dead by the time this inquiry is over. But they need to be held accountable for what they did.’’ Close to half a million children in Australia in the 20th century were brought up in ‘care’ as state wards or foster children, or in orphanages, children’s homes and other institutions. There are 194 state and church homes and orphanages listed in Victoria. How many will be mentioned in the current inquiry is unknown, but the infamous Bayswater Boys Home run by the Salvation Army, and Morning Star Boys Home in Mt Eliza, which was run by the Catholic Church, have already featured in testimony given. Len, not his real name, was a resident of both. He says being in jail was better. One of two children in what he describes as a ‘‘dysfunctional family’’, Len was 13 when he was surrendered into care by his mother and placed at Bayswater. ‘‘The sign on the street said it was a vocational training centre, but that was ‘taurus excreta’. There was no training. There was just violence. ‘‘I ran away whenever I could and was made to pay when I got caught. They’d make me run in the quadrangle until I was exhausted. I can still hear my mates call out ‘whatever you do, don’t go down’. But they’d keep at it until I dropped and then they’d start on me with cricket bats. ‘‘Another time I was thrown into a cell with water all over the floor and given a wet blanket. I had no water, and no food. They tried to rape me and when I went to the matron she hit the back of my hands with a ruler until my knuckles bled. She told me never to tell lies again. ‘‘The last time I escaped I surrendered to Turana [youth justice centre]. I was covered in bruises from the beatings and I hoped that they would get a doctor for me and fix me up. But they did nothing, and sent me back to Bayswater and I copped it again.’’ Virtually homeless, Len drifted in and out of the family home, in and out of the ‘system’, going bush for a while, finding a bed where he could and getting money from the proceeds of stolen goods. In 1962, he was sent to Morning Star Boys Home. ‘‘I had been sentenced for property

Measured response: Cardinal George Pell admitted to the Victorian inquiry into child abuse on May 27 that the church had covered up allegations of child sexual abuse by its priests. Picture: Arsineh Houspian offences and had already been in the system for a couple of years. I was with another young bloke and the first thing we saw when we pulled up in the escort van was two brothers belting the hell out of some poor kid. ‘‘The first night I was there I was put in a room by myself and was woken up about 4am by one of the brothers who had his hands under the covers and moving up my leg towards my groin. Because I challenged him he left me alone. But I knew I would be targeted. I’d seen it all before and I wasn’t going to hang around.’’ Len will give evidence to the inquiry in camera. He says it is too hard for him, and unfair on his family, to speak publicly. ‘‘I still have nightmares. They did it because they could. They had no training, had free rent and treated us like dogs. We were beaten and raped and described as the dregs, parasites, recidivists. I was paraded in front of an assembly and called a yellow, mongrel dog. You never forget that. I will take it to my grave.’’ It is a familiar story to Wayne Davis, who on March 25 told the Victorian inquiry into the handling of child abuse by religious and other organisations that he thought he was going on a holiday by the sea when he went to Morning Star in 1967. ‘‘ The first thing that happened to me

‘I will probably be dead by the time this inquiry is over. But they need to be held accountable for what they did.’ — Len when I got there, I had lunch and then got punched in the mouth by a brother and told to dig. You were basically a human cultivator. You went six across, six back, up and down. I stopped and said: ‘What do you want me to do now, brother?’ He punched me again in the mouth. ‘‘They used to sneak up behind us, the brothers, and punch us in the kidneys until we urinated blood. After about the first two weeks I became of the opinion that I had to get out of there. Two other guys and I tried to escape, and we were caught by other trainees at the centre — who were given extra privileges for catching us — and they bashed us. We were locked in this dormitory ... a brother came in and bashed me and sexually abused me. He made me masturbate him.’’ One morning Davis and four others escaped again. By 10 that night they were in custody. ‘‘When they [police] opened my hands and put

them on the fingerprint paper the blood went everywhere because of the blisters all over my hands. They could not believe that, and then we told them about the kidneys. They lifted all our shirts. Every one of us had bruised kidneys. We did not mention the sexual assault ... I could not.’’ With the support of police, an inquiry was launched into the allegations of abuse at Morning Star. ‘‘I was told that everything that was said was believed and would be acted upon. I know that it was not and that’s what is destroying me. Every time I read or see on TV that some kid killed themselves because of abuse by people of all denominations and institutions, I feel guilty for not doing enough.’’ Davis told the inquiry he was an alcoholic by the time he was 16. ‘‘I’ve been a gambling addict. I hardly have any friends; I cannot keep friendships. I cannot hold down jobs. I was abused sexually, physically and mentally at Morning Star.’’ Morning Star Boys Home closed in September 1975. The property is now a boutique hotel and functions venue. The Victorian inquiry hearings have been completed and a report is expected to be tabled in Parliament by September 30.

Spirits move this distiller BY HAYDN GODONY hile vacationing at his holiday home in Shoreham, Wayne Klintworth got talking to neighbour Bob Laing about the world of spirits — the distilled alcoholic essence of fermented grains and fruits. The neighbourly chat led to a serious business venture and what became the peninsula’s only dedicated distillery in 2009, set up in leased space at Darling Park Winery in Red Hill. “I had been to Italy and when I came back I wanted to make some limonchello and, chatting with Bob, we really got to realise that there was an opportunity on the peninsula for a distillery, using regional wine,” Mr Klintworth said. “Whisky is made at a couple of spots in Tassie, but Australia is known for little more than that, nobody else has yet taken on the challenge of making brandy.” The Red Hill brandy is barrelled and matured in French oak using long-established techniques for creating the finest tipples. The brandy is now still in the process of maturing before being ready

Espavo Natural Mineral Boutique Health Spa — now open in Frankston — is the missing link in the search for what busy women want from a health spa. Espavo, just outside Bayside Shopping Centre, is the creation of Vanessa Shaw, a Langwarrin mother of three young children who also owns and runs the Peninsula’s only salt therapy clinic, Salts of the Earth, for respiratory and skin conditions. The clinic now shares its location with Espavo. Espavo is an ancient greeting that means ’’Thank you for taking your power back’’. After years of observing the hectic and exhausting lives of parents doing it all, bringing sick children to the salt rooms but getting so run down and unwell themselves, Vanessa saw the need for women to have a place of their own to go. Her empathy comes from being one of those parents herself — running a business and raising her children, juggling pick-ups and dinners, house cleaning and homework, meetings and reports, and still having a gentle smile, patience and cuddles with a storybook at bedtime.

So she created a place that ts your schedule, budget and needs. A place to take your power back. Understanding that balancing out stress levels with relaxation and correcting toxicity with nutrition and detoxifying treatments — and nding some peace within your usual chaos in a space that motivates and inspires you — is just as important, if not more important, than pushing yourself to physical limits. Whether you have 30 minutes or three hours to spare, enter another world, lit solely by Himalayan salt lamps and let it all go. Come in for a cup of herbal tea (or a coffee) and chat with one of Espavo’s staff.

One on one with Lauren BY ROY WARD ASPIRING south-east Melbourne basketballers will get the chance to hone their talents at the newly established Lauren Jackson Basketball Academy later this year. Four-time Olympian Lauren Jackson has joined with training company Smart Connection Training to create a 12-week training academy. The program includes key tactics for on-court success, techniques to improve conditioning, and being guided through drills that will improve their overall performance and skill set. The academy will be open to all 15-18 year olds. Academy lessons also focus on teaching players how to plan for their future career and study options, especially those in the sports industry with those who finish the program receiving a certificate I in vocational preparation.

The academy will host an initial phase of programs at the highly popular basketball centres of Dandenong, Kilsyth, Knox and Nunawading. The highlight of the academy is a twoday intensive Jackson Jam Super Camp at which players will work directly with Jackson and other professional men and women players during the school holidays. Jackson said she was excited about her new academy. “I have always wanted to give more back to the sport of basketball and the youth of Australia,’’ she said. ‘‘This is an exciting initiative for me and gives me the chance to pass on my experience and life lessons to help youth reach their goals and dreams. ‘‘I don’t believe there are any limitations to what can be achieved personally and professionally and I strongly believe in having fun and enjoying

the journey along the way.” Smart Connection Training managing director Martin Sheppard said the program offered a broad blend of basketball and life skills. “It’s not often students get the chance to be trained in their own backyard by one of the world’s top athletes,” Sheppard said. “This program has everything — life skills to help students gain a career in an exciting and fast-paced industry. ‘‘It is also an opportunity to train one on one with Lauren Jackson and have her share coaching tips to improve the way they play basketball.” The program is expected to expand nationally later this year.

New routine snaps Langy’s losing streak BY MORGAN COLE LANGWARRIN has enjoyed its second win of the year with an upset victory over Bonbeach in the Peninsula League match at Bonbeach on Saturday. The breakthrough victory comes as a relief to senior coach Paul Wheatley, who was desperate to end the Kangaroos’ seven-game losing streak. ‘‘It was a great win for the boys and a great win for the club,’’ Wheatley said. ‘‘We’ve been in winning positions a lot over our last month of footy. ‘‘You keep putting yourself in those positions and eventually you will break through.’’ Wheatley said changes to his side’s pre-game routine seemed to have helped his players.

Tigers nose out Dolphins WERRIBEE Tigers produced a stunning second half to defeat Frankston Dolphins by 39 points at Frankston Oval on Saturday. The Dolphins have produced some brilliant football this year but have not been able to produce it for long enough. This was the case again against the Tigers. The Dolphins led by as much as five goals in the second term with forward Michael Lourey in ominous touch, booting 4.3 in the opening half. But it was the Tigers who seized the momentum. Ben Warren, who was to prove the match winner, helped them trim the margin to 13 points by half-time. The pendulum never swang again as the Tigers booted eight goals in the third quarter to take a 29-point buffer into the final term. The Dolphins had solid servants in Shane Hockey, Tom Purcell, Luke Potts, Corey Buchan and, of course, Lourey, who will be catching the eye of AFL scouts. The Frankston Dolphins’ next match is against Northern Blues at Preston City Oval on Saturday. — Brad McGrath

Going down: Frankston’s Ziggy Alwan is taken down by Werribee’s Jackson Davis during their VFL match on Saturday.

‘‘We mixed up things a little bit and did a few different things at training. ‘‘We shortened our warm up and had our pregame meeting a little bit earlier.’’ The changes paid immediate dividends. Langwarrin took an early edge and jumped out of the blocks to get to a 19-point lead at the first change. The Sharks steadied in the second term, coach Steve Capp sending swing-man Shaun Foster forward to help provide another avenue to goal. Foster finished with three goals. Bonbeach managed to hold the Kangaroos off for most of the third term, maintaining the edge and going into the final quarter with a eightpoint lead. Sharks captain and star forward Shane

McDonald had tough afternoon. The skipper was shadowed by Langwarrin tagger Dylan Luxa and managed three majors from his limited opportunities. ‘‘He [McDonald] lowered his colours a little bit,’’ Capp said. ‘‘He still managed three goals but they were goals that only Macca could kick.’’ Kangaroos forward Luke Damon was at his best with five majors, the former Chelsea gun helping his side get over the line by 17 points. ‘‘It was close to his best game for us,’’ Wheatley said. ‘‘He really stood up in the final term.’’ The loss has put Bonbeach back into equal second place on points, shared with six other teams: Karingal, Mt Eliza, Edithvale-Aspendale, Pines, Seaford and Mornington all sit on five wins and four losses.

In other Peninsula League matches, the upsets continued with Edithvale-Aspendale recording a stunning 50-point victory over an injurydepleted Frankston YCW. Mornington strung together its second win in a row, defeating Pines by 11 points. Mt Eliza continued its resurgence with a 73-point smashing of Chelsea. The Redlegs have now won five of their past six matches. Karingal added to Seaford’s woes, the Bulls defeating the Tigers by 17 points and sending them to eighth place on the table. Sorrento beat Rye in the stand-alone Nepean League match on Saturday. For a full report on Nepean League visit frankstonweekly.com.au.

Tables turned on Frankston MYLES Collins avenged his round 3 loss to current club singles champion Sam Palmer in another classic clash in Mornington Peninsula Table Tennis Association action last Thursday night. With the annual club championships to be held on Thursday, Collins’ stirring 4-3 win at the David Collings Leisure Centre could not have come at a better time for the Somerville ace. Collins sent out a clear message that his eyes are firmly focused on championship glory in his first season at the Mornington club. The win against Palmer and partner Gary Anderson was instrumental in his team’s 3-2 win over Frankston, inflicting defeat on the ladder leader for the first time this season. In other matches, second-placed Carrum Downs crushed a lacklustre Mornington 5-0 to retain second place on the ladder and give their percentage an all-important boost as they struggle to hold off Somerville for a gold medal playoff game against Frankston at the end of the season. Phil Bolitho and Mark Flavel had surprisingly easy wins against Jarryd Cathcart. Neither player had any difficulty in disposing of Cathcart’s partner Peter Du Plooy, who continues to struggle for form in the local competition. In other matches, Mt Martha’s Sean O’Meara and Chris Robinson have taken the points against bottom club Langwarrin. Luke Bronsema finally found some form, notching wins against both O’Meara and Robinson. But comfortable wins by the Mount Martha pair against Bronsema’s partner Shane O’Connor and a hard-fought win in the doubles translated to a 3-2 win to the Mounties.
