Addicts strain system BY SAMANTHA ROBIN

‘Every patient deserves the same level of care.’ — John Jukes ation and they need the acute care that a hospital can provide.’’ Across Melbourne, ambulance call-outs for patients with drug and alcohol problems jumped from 136 in 2009-10 to 282 in 2010-11. The Australian Medical Association refused to comment on the issue of drug addicts taking up emergency beds. Mr Jukes said the emergency department was

also being increasingly visited by people who no longer had a regular GP and chose to go to the emergency department. Earlier this year, Health Minister David Davis announced a $40 million injection for the expansion and reconfiguration of Frankston’s busy emergency department. South Eastern Metropolitan Region MP Lee Tarlamis said Frankston Hospital was under growing financial pressure and patient care had been affected. Mr Jukes said the hospital was working with the Department of Health for solutions. ‘‘Our performance in 24-hour waiting periods was disappointing in many months but it is improving. ‘‘We are the smallest of the metropolitan health services but we have one of the highest numbers of ambulance deliveries.’’

A diverse range of talented local firms jostled for victory at the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Excellence in Business Awards. Pictured are Jess Beckham and Judy and Ben Muir of Polperro Dolphin Swims. Page 9

FRANKSTON Hospital’s emergency department is struggling to cope with a rise in patients with substance and alcohol abuse problems. Peninsula Health’s annual report for the previous financial year states there were 402 people who spent more than 24 hours in the hospital’s emergency department, some of them affected by drugs and alcohol. Peninsula Health spokesman John Jukes said that in some cases the emergency department was the best place for patients. ‘‘It might provide the best care, or sometimes there is a delay just because we are waiting on tests. In some cases people are coming down off drug and alcohol abuse and it’s unsafe to transfer them to a ward. ‘‘These people need acute care and they need it quickly and in a controlled environment.

‘‘These are people who have problems ranging from psychotic issues to drug issues and in these cases the emergency department is the best place for them. ‘‘These people are often a life-threatening situ-

Re: Hanging with the surfies Thanks immensely for a great feature story. We need more uplifting stories like this. It brought back many happy memories for me. I loved the beach and surfies and their attitude to life, although I wasn’t one. My girlfriends and I never missed Sunday nights at Shindig for many years in the ’70s. I have been married for many years and have children and seven grandchildren. Patricia Colman, Baxter

Cut the spending Why is the voting for councillors not broadcast more widely and in a transparent manner? I am so disappointed that Frankston Council saw fit to put in two palm trees at a very extreme cost when

the council is cutting back on other services. Surely they should put such expense to a public vote and not just proceed. Frankston would be much better if we rearranged our priorities in Frankston City and not waste ratepayers’ monies. Lloyd Crompton, Frankston

Re: Karlene wants to be a mum You go, girl. Sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders. If your friends didn’t think you would cope and be a good mother, they all wouldn’t be rallying together to help you. Married couples and singles are entitled to have their wish for children when it’s not possible the ‘‘normal’’ way — otherwise the IVF process wouldn’t be there. Also, married couples use childcare centres as well; children aren’t ‘‘dumped in care’’: these childcare workers love these children like their own. Great to see friends and the community rally together for a good cause.

A Frankston resident was surprised to find this feathered family taking a dip in her swimming pool last week. After the nine ducklings were safely removed with a pool skimmer, the birds had a well-earned rest in a nest hidden at the back of the garden.

Drainage work soon BY ALECIA PINNER MELBOURNE Water will begin controversial drainage works outside the Heatherhill Road shops in Frankston early next year. Rather than closing both lanes of the road, as first planned, only the east-bound lane with be closed. Melbourne Water program manager Phil Corluka said the works would maintain access to the shops at all times. ‘‘The Frankston community is heavily impacted by flooding and these works are essential to reducing those impacts. We’ll continue to work with traders and council to minimise any potential impacts on trade for local businesses,’’ Mr Corluka said. A Melbourne Water spokeswoman said the works would begin in January or February, depending on the wishes of the traders, and was expected to take about six months. Heatherhill Road traders were concerned that six months of full road closures would destroy their businesses. Sally Head of Eliza Flowers said even with one lane closed, customers would be deterred by the traffic, noise pollution and trouble getting in and out of car parking during the works.

‘‘Can you imagine 8500 cars trying to traverse one side of the road? It will be an absolute nightmare. We are pushing for them to stop at the top of Roberts Street. Representatives for the traders have met with council engineers who said it was do-able.’’ She said traders had taken their concerns to Frankston Council and state and federal ministers. ‘‘We are running out of time. I think the risk of flooding has been blown way out of proportion. There might be a few inches of water and it is certainly not going to flood at the top of the hill.’’

Seeing red: The Mahogany Rise Raiders celebrate with Cranbourne MP Jude Perera, who organised the pupils’ transport to the school’s day and presented trophies.

Tap into online hub South East Water has launched an online community hub to enable Frankston residents to keep up to date with progress about the company’s planned move to the city in 2015. The water authority plans to shift its head office and 700 staff to a new building on Kananook Creek Boulevard. Concerns have been raised about the potential height of the building. A South East Water spokeswoman said the height was yet to be decided, with an architect still drawing up plans. The website gives locals an opportunity to ask questions.

Howzat? We’ve won again DESPITE the chilly weather last Friday week, the Pines Cricket Club’s ninth annual Schools Day was a great success. For the first time in the competition’s history, two schools which won last year successfully defended their trophies. The Mahogany Rise Raiders (5-34) defeated

Kananook Crushers (7-27). In the afternoon match, the Aldercourt Astros (8-38) downed the Belvedere Park Bulls (5-34). Match awards went to Pradeep Bist, Max Peters, Ben Riddle and Josh Mitchell. The longest throw award went to Dylan Williams, who threw 46.4 metres against the wind. — Alecia Pinner

Two sought over Frankston robbery FRANKSTON police are investigating an armed robbery in Excelsior Drive, Frankston North, about 11.45pm on May 30. A 34-year-old man was walking near the intersection of Darley Court when he was approached by two men, one of whom, believed to be in his mid-30s, produced a knife and demanded money. The victim handed over his wallet and the offenders removed some cash. The men then patted the victim down and took his cigarettes before the victim ran away. The first man was described to police as Caucasian, 188 centimetres, of skinny build and clean shaven, with a fair complexion and dark, short hair. He was wearing an adidas jacket, blue jeans and white runners. Police believe the second man is in his mid-20s, Caucasian and 173 centimetres and of medium to overweight build. He was clean shaven and had dark hair with a blonde streak through the top. Police were told he had a long, pink, pointed earring in his left ear and was wearing a black hoodie and black pants.

The man was wearing blue insulated gloves, a hat and a scarf to disguise his face and was described as 185 centimetres, of slim build and with dark hair and dark eyes. Detective Sergeant Al Hanson said the 33-yearold attendant was not injured during the robbery and police believed the man ran off down Klauer Street towards the freeway.

610 vehicles seized, but hoons rev on BY LEE OPITZ FRANKSTON has come in seventh on a list of Victoria’s top 10 areas for hoon drivers. Since hoon laws were enforced in 2006, more than 20,000 vehicles have been impounded statewide — 610 of them in the Frankston police service area. And following tougher laws introduced last year, the number of cars impounded has jumped about 20 per cent to more than 4140 compared to the previous financial year. The Mornington Peninsula police service area shows 351 cars have been impounded, growing from one in 2006 to 53 so far this year. Police and Emergency Services Minister Peter Ryan said the impoundments are sending a strong message that Victorians would no longer tolerate dangerous and antisocial driving behaviour. “Hoon behaviour, including high-level speeding, poses a significant road safety risk and is something we have been working hard to stamp out,” Mr Ryan said.

“Offenders who have their vehicles impounded incur significant costs to obtain the vehicle’s release, pay penalties and incur demerit points. In certain circumstances an offender’s vehicle can be sold or disposed of and the proceeds go towards the cost of the program or other road safety measures.” Under the new laws police could impound vehicles for 30 days and extend this period for repeat offenders. The figures show: ■ Young males make up 96 per cent of hoon drivers. ■ The top three offences resulting in vehicle impoundment are: excessive speed (45 km/h or more over the speed limit), improper use of motor vehicle (loss of traction offences) and driving while disqualified or suspended. ■ The most common types of vehicles impounded include Holdens, Fords, Nissans, Toyotas and Hondas. ■ The areas of greatest concern include the police service areas of Greater Dandenong, Hume and Brimbank.

Innovative firm scoops business awards BY SANDRA BULL A SEAFORD company set to sell its life-saving invention overseas is the overall winner of the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Excellence in Business Awards. Equipment Safety Systems Pty Ltd, headed by Ted Parrott, also took out the manufacturing category award at the prestigious awards, held last Thursday at the Frankston Arts Centre. The company has developed a sophisticated load management system for telescopic handlers that drastically increases operator safety through features including a dynamic interactive rating chart and a stability triangle which helps the operator remain within stability limits set by the manufacturer. The home-grown innovation is especially useful for the construction and farming sectors. Mr Parrott praised his team, saying he could not have achieved this success without their dedication. ‘‘With a bit of luck we’re going to be supplying our systems to the worldwide market by about February next year. We think it’s damn smart of us,’’ he joked. More than 60 high-quality entries across nine categories were submitted for this year’s event,

Banding together: About 150 students step out in the awareness walk.

Pictures: Gary Sissons

Walking the fund-raising talk pays off BY ALECIA PINNER

Helping others: Two of the three organisers, Allanah Rulehland and Chelbe Matthews.

A TRIO of students at McClelland College in Frankston are hoping they may have saved at least one Indian girl from prostitution by completing an awareness walk last Friday. The walk was organised by Allanah Ruehland, Chelbe Matthews and Therese Hughes as part of the year 9 community placement component of their studies.

College year 9 leader Derek Kirk said students were required to complete a community placement and some had helped out at local primary schools, City Life and even travelled to Fiji. ‘‘Three students are going all out with this walk to raise money for girls in India who are sold into prostitution, usually by their parents.’’ He said the walk was inspired by a similar walk from Mornington to Frankston, earlier this year, to raise money for the

cause. A teacher at the college took part in the public walk and told the students about it. Last Friday afternoon, almost every student from year 9 nine walked along Karingal Drive and Cranbourne Road to Ballam Park and enjoyed a barbecue lunch. ‘‘I’m hoping to raise at least $800 which is the cost to free one woman. It provides housing, clothing and teaches them a trade,’’ Ms Ruehland said.

Dress to impress Opposition families, housing and human services spokesman Kevin Andrews and Dunkley MP Bruce Billson visited Jan Clarke at the Dress for Success office in Frankston last Thursday. The program provides clothes, accessories and advice for job interviews to local disadvantaged women. Mr Andrews said he was so impressed by the program he considered it could be used as a model for other areas around Australia. “These community-based programs are so important to the welfare of the community and our future generations.’’

Apathy wins hands down LET’S try a quick quiz: Who’s the Prime Minister of Australia? Can you name the Premier of Victoria? What about the mayor of your local council? Or the councillor for the ward in which you live? If you answered each of those, well done. But if not, why not? Figures from the Victorian Electoral Commission imply voters are far less engaged with local councils than other levels of government. In the 2004 council elections, almost 76.5 per cent voted in postal elections. By contrast, just 70 per cent turned out at the handful of attendance elections. For those who did vote, only 45 per cent followed candidates’ how-to-vote instructions, and 9.9 per cent of votes were counted as informal. In the 2008 council elections, just 76 per cent of enrolled voters across Victoria cast their ballots. That year, 74.18 per cent of voters cast their ballots in the Mornington Peninsula Shire

council election. In Frankston, it was 71.88 per cent. By contrast, about 92 per cent of people took part in the 2010 state election, with an informal voting rate of 4.96 per cent. And outside of election time, councils go about their business seemingly unscrutinised, with public galleries at monthly open meetings empty save for the local media and diehard ‘fans’. So why are people so disinterested in their council — and willing to cop a $56 fine for not voting — when the decisions it makes are so much closer to home than those of Spring Street or Canberra? “I think it’s that local government is misunderstood,” says Rob Spence, chief executive officer of the Municipal Association of Victoria. “I know there’s a view that councils are a waste of time, but stand out on your front lawn and look out — everything comes from the council. The roads, the footpaths, the parks, and you can have a say in shaping that. It’s so significant the role they play and it should be appreciated.”

Ken Coghill, director of Monash University’s governance research unit, says the importance of local government to people’s day-to-day lives cannot be underestimated. “They’re in charge of everything, from safe and secure roads right through to the really important decisions about the future of the community, so it’s really important councillors know they’ve got the full support or authority of the public,” Mr Coghill said. “The lack of interest weakens democracy. If a council does something you don’t like, then you’ve only got yourself to blame. If 20 or 30 per cent of voters don’t vote, then that’s 20 or 30 per cent who don’t have their views represented.” But Mr Coghill is quick to say the responsibility is not just on residents. Councillors — and candidates — need to get out and show people what they stand for, make themselves available and encourage their interest. Some argue the voting system is flawed, particularly with the use of

In the box?: Not all Frankston residents will bother casting their vote in Saturday’s council elections. dummy candidates. But this is something Mr Coghill said was “an inevitable outcome” of the preferential voting system.

“It’s worrying, but then if one person is vocal and another is running dead, I think voters are smart enough to see through that tactic.”

Life’s a beach, with a box seat on shore BY LEE OPITZ TREVOR and Christine Talbot reckon they’ve got the bargain of a lifetime after buying a beachfront property on Long Island in Frankston. The Langwarrin couple was the successful bidder in an auction for a new bathing box on the foreshore on October 13. The auction raised money for the Frankston Community Fund and Rotary community projects. ‘‘It’s not very big, but it’s the cheapest bit of beachfront property I know of,’’ Mr Talbot said. The Talbots said the $115,000 they paid for the box licence was great value, especially as licences came up for sale so rarely. ‘‘It’s a lifestyle thing. We have three teenage boys and do a lot of wakeboarding, so it will be great.’’ The Rotary Club of Frankston Sunrise came up with the idea to jointly build the box with Frankston Council earlier this year. It is rare to see new bathing boxes being built because state regulations don’t allow a net gain in

Room with a view: The Talbots and their new bathing box.

‘It’s not very big, but it’s the cheapest bit of beachfront property I know of.’ — Trevor Talbot the number of boxes on the foreshore. However, the council demolished two ageing concrete boxes to make way for the new timber shelter, with a second likely to follow at a later date. Materials for the 6x4 metres box were donated by Wimbledon Homes, Frankston Mitre 10, Thomas Anderson Design, Engtruss Pty Ltd, Amistead Security Fencing, Eco Garage Doors and Apex Metals Roofing.

Cutthroat Charmers: One of the South Sea Roller Derby league’s four teams.

Sisterhood of the skate The popularity of roller derby is hitting new heights and SANDRA BULL reports on the thrills and spills of a growing sport. tockings and a helmet aren’t your average sports gear. But every year more women, including in Frankston and across the Mornington Peninsula, are strapping on quad skates and literally hitting the skating track in the high energy sport of roller derby. Mary Bolling, 30, a South Sea Roller Derby member who competes as ‘Ale Mary’, estimates about 70 per cent of SSRD skaters are from Frankston and the peninsula. Others travel from south-eastern suburbs such as Dandenong for training sessions, mostly at Skateworld at Carrum Downs. Other South Sea league skaters in the fourteam league go by the distinctive monikers of Titasaurus, Inkabelle, Terror to Pieces, Harmin’ Miranda, Sailormouth-Sadie and, in a nod to vampire pop culture, Cookie Crackhouse. While Inkabelle’s name was inspired by her profession as a tattooist, other skaters include nurses, midwives, students, a lawyer and lots of mothers. In fact, a spate of pregnancies has made even more room for new recruits, known as ‘fresh meat’ in roller derby lingo. Bolling says the colourful personas often complement the skaters ‘‘bout-fits’’, which range from booty shorts to tutus. ‘‘It’s pure sport but there’s a very strong theatrical element as the skaters have such big personalities. ‘‘Some will wear [sports] skins while others

S

don’t mind if a tutu is slowing them down. ‘‘It’s a big commitment in terms of training, but because it’s such a supportive league, people get swept up into it. ‘‘It becomes part of life very quickly, and a very empowering thing for women to take on.’’ Bolling, a journalist, started skating in 2010. Despite breaking an arm in training, she was bout-ready in a year. That timeframe is not unusual for skaters, because much like martial arts, they progress in levels before being deemed fit to fight. The sport involves two teams of five women, deploying speed and strategy in multiple two minute ‘‘jams’’ in which each team works to help their ‘‘jammer’’ notch up as many laps as possible around the track. While slapping, scratching or deliberately tripping are banned, solid hip and shoulder hits are allowed. ‘‘You can’t hit the back or head but the hitting that is legal can still lay someone out flat,’’ Bolling notes matter-of-factly. Injuries of varying degrees are not uncommon in the fast-moving contact sport, and Bolling says skaters must wear helmets, mouth guards, and knee, wrist and elbow guards. One of the first lessons is how to fall safely. ‘‘I have been pretty lucky, although I come home with bruises pretty much every week. There have been all sorts of injuries some others have experienced. ‘‘Achilles heels snapping at training and ankle

CALLING FRESH MEAT Roller derby recruiting next month: South Sea Roller Derby: Fresh meat training from November 11 is for skaters with no derby experience. You must, however, be able to propel yourself around the rink without holding onto the rail before joining.

and knee injuries are a common problem.’’ The SSRD is among more than 50 roller derby leagues across Australia in what is arguably the fastest-growing women’s sport. The home-grown league has about 120 members, mainly skaters but also referees and officials. Its two home teams are the Cutthroat Charmers and the Dolly Rogers. SSRD also fields two travel teams: the South Sea Sirens (A team) and South Sea Banshees (B team). The SSRD has flourished since its humble beginnings in 2009, when it was founded by former Victorian Roller Derby League member, Misty Meaner. From a few core members, some with more enthusiasm than skill, persistence and practice enabled the league to compete this year in its first national tournament, where the skaters triumphed in one of their two bouts. Bolling jokes the SSRD will make its first ‘overseas’ journey next month when the South Sea Sirens head off for a bout in Tasmania.

Training is Friday nights and Sunday afternoons in Carrum Downs, and new skaters receive basic skills coaching. Details: Go to southsearollerderby.com. Rosebud Rebels: The next intake is at the end of next month. Details: rosebudrebels.com.

Also travelling across the Tasman for the competition will be Rye resident and co-founder of the Rosebud Rebels league, Erin Cameron. Cameron, known in the roller derby community as Red Whiner, started the league with her friend Caitlin Foster (Cat Fatale) in March last year as they didn’t want to travel all the way to Carrum Downs to train with the SSRD. The pair were inspired by a bout they saw in the city about two years ago. Despite fierce rivalry on the track, SSRD members occasionally skate with the newer Rosebud Rebels, which is building up a full team. Its 30 members are all peninsula based, hailing from Mornington, Safety Beach, Dromana, Rosebud and Rye. ‘‘Roller derby is all about the grassroots community; it’s like a sisterhood,’’ Cameron, a midwife, says. ‘‘There’s a freedom to it. When I hit the track I’m not worrying about my kids or my husband or what’s happening at work. I just go out and skate hard.’’

An ‘oldie’ with new talent

Daveys Bar & Restaurant

ONE NIGHT ONLY - WE WELCOME ollowing the successful Rock Show tour, Aussie rock icon Jon English is bringing his new show, Rock Revolution, to Frankston. The show features more classic hits from the 1960s and ’70s performed by his hand-picked cast of nine young multi-talented musicians and singers. “There are a few new faces in this show,� English said. “After three years, some of the original cast decided it was time to move on to other things, which is of course great for them, but it’s also a chance for some fresh faces to shine and experience performing in a live touring show. We’ve got some fantastic talent to show off and a whole new swag of songs.� Tunes include hits by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Bob Dylan, Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Meatloaf, Janis Joplin, Billy Joel, The Easybeats, Jackson 5, Joni Mitchell, T Rex, Tina Turner, Suzi Quatro and The Doors. A dash of humour is included.

Get Involved Activity: Become a volunteer and help make ailing children’s wishes come true.

After starting just three years ago, the branch has already helped grant 30 wishes and raised more than $60,000. President Len Kelly said: ‘‘I think the enthusiasm of our volunteers stems from the knowledge that we will receive strong support in our local area, but we always need more volunteers to continue to make dreams a reality for local children. We also don’t have many male volunteers at our branch and a few more men would be most welcome, as would applicants from local business and corporate communities. Volunteers, who meet once a month, can take part in activities such as wish-granting, fund-raising, public speaking and helping with administrative duties.’’ Where: The branch, which extends from Frankston and Hastings to Portsea, is holding an information session for prospective volunteers from 7.30-8.30pm on Wednesday, November 14 at Mornington Golf Club, Tallis Drive.

SPORT ●

Dun and dusted at the Caulfield Cup SPRING FEVER by ROY ASPINALL CRAIG Williams produced an outstanding ride on a remarkable horse to win Saturday’s 135th running of $2.6 million group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup (2400 metres) on last year’s Melbourne Cup winner, Dunaden. It was one of the best Caulfield Cups since the race was first run in 1879 and the winner rewrote the record books. The Mikel Delzangles-trained seven year old became the first original topweight to take out the race when he powered over the top of his rivals. The French son of Nicobar joined Viewed (2009) as the only Melbourne Cup winners to

return and win the Caulfield Cup in the past 50 years. It matched the efforts of Gay Icarus (1971), Ming Dynasty (1980) and Northerly (2002) as the only horses in the past 45 years to carry 58 kilograms to victory. And he did it all from the outside barrier in the field of 18, with Williams becoming just the ninth jockey to win back to back Caulfield Cups after scoring last year on Southern Speed. “He’s a remarkable horse,” Williams said. “I was confident the way he was working”. From his wide barrier Williams dropped him out and steered across to the rails and bided his time until the final stages, making a sizzling run around the field to win going away. Dunaden scored by half a length from Alcopop with Lights of Heaven 11⁄4 lengths away third. The Caulfield Cup is always considered a great guide to the Melbourne Cup and this year it is even more so. Much interest will centre of what penalty the Racing Victoria handicapper gives Dunaden at 11.30am on Monday. Apart from the other placegetters there were

great runs from 2010 Melbourne Cup winner, Americain (fourth), My Quest For Peace (fifth), Folding Gear (seventh) and Jakkalberry (13th). This week is full of action with Wednesday’s $315,000 group 3 Centrebet Geelong Cup (2400 metres) featuring several Melbourne Cup contenders, including some internationals and most notably Gatewood, who caught the attention at Caulfield last Saturday week. Remember that both Dunaden and Americain won the race before their Flemington success. This year the Cox Plate meeting at Moonee Valley will be run over two days, starting on Friday evening. Saturday will see the $3,050,000 group 1 Tatts Cox Plate (2040m). The Spring Racing Carnival concludes on November 17 with Sportingbet Sandown Guineas Day on Sandown’s Hillside track. Riding high: Jockey Craig Williams celebrates after riding Dunaden to win the BMW Caulfield Cup from Alcopop at Caulfield in 2012. Picture Mal Fairclough/The Age

MOTORING ●

A coupe de grace The Volkswagen CC is all style, says Ewan Kennedy. our-door coupes make a lot of sense in today’s world. As the baby boomers get older and their limbs get stiffer they want the convenience of a four-door sedan but love the idea of driving a sleek, stylish two-door coupe. Mercedes-Benz began the four-door coupe trend with its CLS in the early years of the 21st century. Volkswagen’s Passat CC was the first of the affordable cars in the class. In an interesting move, the German giant has decided not to call the all-new model a Passat, but simply a ‘CC’. The CC follows the latest VW design theme, with sleek lines that give it a low profile.The large VW badge in the bootlid acts as the boot handle and also houses the rear-view camera. Despite the low, sleek exterior, cabin headroom has not been compromised. Those in the rear compartment greatly appreciated being able to get in and out through normal doors, instead of having to crawl past folded front seats, as is the norm in a two-door coupe. They added that you have to be aware of the

F

lower-than-average door opening, particularly when getting into the CC. Soft-touch cabin surroundings and leather trimmed seats continue the feel of the exterior quality. The boot is relatively shallow but, cleverly, it can be opened by making a kicking movement under the rear of the car. You need to have the key in your pocket or bag so that the CC senses you’re authorised to open the bootlid in this manner. Volkswagen CC comes with the choice of two engines — a 3.6-litre V6 FSI petrol putting out 220kW of power and a 2.0-litre TDI commonrail turbo-diesel delivering 125kW. Both engines produce 350 Nm of torque: the petrol between 2400 and 5300 rpm, the diesel from a low 1750 revs. Both engines sit beside a six-speed DSG double-clutch automatic that has a semi-manual mode using either the gear lever or steering wheel-mounted shift paddles. Our test car was the petrol, which not only has

The latter provides added traction on slippery surfaces or when pulling sharply out of a side street into a small gap in heavy traffic.

accelerate the big coupe to 100 km/h from rest in just 5.6 seconds. Yet on test we found the VW CC using only eight to ten litres per 100 kilometres around town. Getting petrol consumption below seven litres per hundred when touring was simple with a bit of attention to economy driving.

Holland hurt in fielding mishap BY BRAD McGRATH FRANKSTON Peninsula Heat and Victorian star Jon Holland has suffered a shoulder injury and the Premier Cricket club is sweating on the results of a scan. Holland was playing for the Heat in its loss to Footscray-Edgewater on Saturday and the allrounder was in the field when the injury occurred. Heat general manager Glenn Davey said the injury ‘‘didn’t look good’’ but the club was hoping the scan results, which are due this morning, would be positive. ‘‘He batted really well and then bowled three overs and just threw a ball in from the outfield and it aggravated his shoulder,’’ he said. ‘‘He contacted the Victorian physio straightaway

— it’s just a disappointing time for him considering the recent media for him with [Australian selector] John Inverarity saying he was in line to play Test cricket.’’ To compound a tough day for the Heat, FootscrayEdgewater cruised to victory in the 41st over, narrowly missing out on a bonus point as the top order compiled 1-203. Davey said Footscray-Edgewater had batted sensibly and put away the bad balls, with Dean Russ making a classy 109. Earlier in the day Frankston Peninsula Heat had a mini batting collapse. After English import Matt Lineker (31) and Ben Hillard (32) got the Heat off to a solid start a sudden tumble of wickets had the side in trouble at 6-107. But as is often the case skipper Matt Chasemore

Frankston’s grip tightens FRANKSTON has strengthened its hold on No.1 spot on the Mornington Peninsula Table Tennis Association’s A1 spring pennant ladder after thrashing Somerville 4-1 at the David Collings Leisure Centre on Thursday. Frankston captain Sam Palmer chalked up another two singles victories and is undefeated after three rounds, while partner Jim Conlon has three wins from six matches and is proving to be the perfect foil for his younger team mate. While Somerville’s Sean O’Meara managed to take two games off Palmer before going down 4-2, Palmer was always in control and a win for the Frankston star never looked in doubt. However O’Meara did manage to tame the wily Conlon to save his side from the indignity of a complete whitewash at the hands of the strong Frankston outfit. Mornington has cruised into second spot on the ladder led by the in-form Jarryd Cathcart, who was untroubled in winning his matches against Mt Martha. A win in the doubles with partner Neil Hicks made it a 3-2 win for the home side. In the remaining match, Dromana defeated Langwarrin 3-2 in an encounter that could have gone either way. Dromana ace Luke Bronsema was pushed all the way by Langwarrin’s Paul Davies in a match that was finally decided in the seventh. However Bronsema had no such trouble in the return singles when he demolished Barry Emsley 4-0 to secure the four points for Dromana after an earlier doubles win with stand-in partner Les Dawson.

dragged his team back into the contest with a measured 48 from 81 balls. He was joined in the rearguard action by experienced campaigner Holland, who made 50 from 43 balls to boost the Heat. The Heat was 8-102 in its one-day clash against Dandenong at Shepley Oval on Sunday, still needing a further 76 from 54 balls. Chasemore was on 53 not out and looming as the Heat’s only hope of securing a miracle victory. Youngster Ben Ashkenazi claimed 4-34 to help restrict Dandenong to 177 in their innings.

New talent gets a leg-up ASPIRING tennis pro Aaron LeederChard sees the new Asia-Pacific Tennis League Victorian competition as a major stepping stone into the summer season. The ATL was created to give emerging players some money and some tough competition in the lead-up to the major tennis tournaments of the summer while giving local supporters the chance to see tennis in a new format. Sets are played to four games instead of six and each club hosts a full round of matches. The competition, which has both men’s and women’s leagues, begins on November 11 with NSW, Queensland and South Australia also hosting versions. The best Australian teams will play at Melbourne Park during the second week of the Australian Open against competition winners from New Zealand and Asia in the ATL playoffs. Each team will have nine players who will play in four singles ties and two doubles matches with older, former tour veterans mixing with current and aspiring players. Leeder-Chard, ranked 1233 in the world, was asked by Waverley Warriors team manager Lyn Gillen to join the team, which will be run by the Waverley Tennis Association and play its home round at the association’s base at Doveton Tennis Courts. The 21 year old, who comes from Mt Eliza, said the format of the competition and the offer of match payments made it a winner in his eyes. ‘‘Being a tennis player is quite hard and really expensive. So giving us player payments helps us out and, if we can be at home and pick up a bit of money, it will help us afford the travel to tournaments later in the year.’’ Leeder-Chard said playing in a team event also appealed to him after playing in futures events in Thailand and Japan along with other events in Cairns, Alice Springs and Western Australia. ‘‘I’ve never played with this format before,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s pretty interesting and exciting. You have a coach on court and the team spirit is always refreshing because it’s not just about yourself — it’s about the team.’’ Waverley Tennis will host a ATL super round, featuring men’s and women’s matches, at Doveton Tennis Club on November 25, starting at 1pm.


Somerville left empty-handed BY MORGAN COLE CARRUM held off a spirited Somerville by 28 runs to secure its first win for the season in a MPCA District Shield match at Roy Dore Reserve on Saturday. After Somerville got off to a flyer in the run chase, Carrum managed to steady through some fierce bowling. Jackson Fry and Cory Foster snared important wickets to bowl the visitors out for 124. Earlier, Carrum appeared to be up against the wall when it lost openers Josh Dent (4), Liam Hullet (8) and captain Shaun Foster (7) for minimal contributions. Daniel Polson steadied the ship for Carrum, racking up an impressive 82 and giving his team a small but defendable total of 152. Somerville had a rough start with Andrew West losing his wicket to a Fry bullet, keeper Dylan Steed taking the catch. Somerville, which went down to Delacombe Park in a desperate finish in round 1, was unlucky again, leaving president Peter Alp disappointed at the second narrow loss in a row. ‘‘It was just very disappointing we had our chances,’’ Alp said. ‘‘It was a slow ground but there are no excuses. ‘‘That’s sport though — at the end of the day there can only be one winner. ‘‘You have to give credit to Carrum. They just played better.’’ Somerville struggled to gain any momentum in its innings with several partnerships threatening to blossom but collapsing under the Carrum attack. Somerville skipper Ben Delaney made a classy 48 before he was removed and seemingly ending any chance of chasing down the meagre Carrum total. Delaney was eventually dislodged by Cory Foster, one of his his three wickets for the day, and the rest of the Eagles line-up struggled with the slow ground. ‘‘We batted OK but they bowled really well,’’ Alp said. ‘‘It’s very disappointing because this is the second game that we have been in a winning position but have lost. ‘‘It’s a very tight comp. There are no easy games; every team has improved out of sight.’’ Somerville takes on Boneo this Saturday in a must-win game to get its season started and Carrum comes up against the in-form Seaford. In other District Shield matches, Hastings defeated Flinders in a low-scoring affair. Boneo had a important win over Baden Powell, captain Leigh Lowry leading the way with 109 not out to guide Boneo home. The Pines secured its first win over Frankston YCW. Langwarrin made it two wins on the trot with a huge victory over Main Ridge, Langwarrin opening batsman Andrew Johnson making 115.

But when Rus and youngster Nick Taranto (18) back in the sheds the Yabbies struggled to gain any momentum.

MT ELIZA’S dream start to its Provincial Shield return gathered more pace with a six-wicket win over Mt Martha at Emil Madsen Reserve on Saturday. The Mounties easily chased down Mt Martha’s 128 with opening batsman Shane Speedie top-scoring with 41 as they reached the target in the 37th over. Mt Martha chose to bat and opener Mitch Darville was the only batsman to take advantage of the near-perfect conditions. Darville was eventually dismissed for 50. Remarkably, the last eight Mt Martha wickets fell for 38 in a huge batting collapse. Mt Eliza bowlers Justin Savio and Lyle House ran rampant and tore apart the lower end of the Mt Martha batting order, House taking 4-32. Captain House said it gave him confidence to have Speedie at the top of the order. ‘‘He is a lot more suited to the twoday style game,’’ House said. House said the bowling performance was important because the Mounties were wary of Mt Martha’s powerful bowling line-up. ‘‘The ground was quick, so we were confident going in. ‘‘We were still wary because we know how good their attack is.’’ Mt Martha young gun Jordan Pomeroy was damaging with the ball, the speedster claiming 2-15 from his 10 overs including the key wickets of Tim Strickland and House. Despite the sharp bowling from the dynamic Pomeroy, Mt Eliza had no trouble chasing the slender target. Its coach Jason Mathers was productive with the bat and contributed 34. ‘‘It was a really hard-fought win’’ House said. Mt Eliza takes on local rivals Peninsula Old Boys this Saturday for the first time since returning to the Provincial Shield in what is promising to be a fiery clash. In other Provincial Shield matches, Crib Point overran Heatherhill by 47 runs, Glenn Barclay making the best of the surface and taking eight wickets. Baxter carried on its shield defence, finishing off Mornington with an 80-run victory. Peninsula Old Boys made it two straight wins, knocking over Rye by 43 runs. Sorrento put Long Island to rest, star recruit Nick Jewell backing up his round 1 performance with another century. Mooroduc overcame Ballam Park to claim its first win for the season.

Yabbies stumble early in chase against Balnarring BALNARRING has managed to hold off Tyabb to win by 25 runs in a MPCA Sub-District Shield match at Balnarring Reserve on Saturday. Balnarring set a competitive total of 9-152 with its middle order doing most of the damage, Chris Murphy leading the way with 42. The challenge fell to a young Tyabb side that stumbled early, losing opening batsman Ben Van Wees run out for just six and the Yabbies never really recovered, eventually being dismissed for
