Creek work ‘definitely on’ BY ALECIA PINNER FRANKSTON MP Geoff Shaw has reiterated his promise that $2.5 million will be spent desilting Kananook Creek. ‘‘It will be this or the next budget,” Mr Shaw told the Weekly. He said Water Minister Peter Walsh was responsible for the creek and while Mr Walsh had previously said the creek fell outside his portfolio, Mr Shaw said this was due to new ministers “trying to find out who was responsible for the entity”. “It [the desilting] was a firstterm commitment and it has not taken that long at all. The impatience of some people is annoying. It is very clear the water minister is responsible and it is my responsibility to make sure the promise is delivered.’’ April has been a busy month for the beleaguered independent Frankston MP. He voted for a Labor bill amendment, prompted another minister’s resignation, spoke to police about the alleged misuse of his parliamentary car and this week is likely to hold the balance of power in the lower house. In the midst of this commotion, Mr Shaw spoke to the Weekly about life as an independent after his surprise resignation from the parliamentary Liberal Party two months ago which contributed to the departure of former premier Ted Baillieu. “It has been a little different.

‘‘There is a bit more pressure on me to read more of the bills but it has really been business as usual. Frankston comes first, so that is the same. I was elected as the member for Frankston and Frankston needs to be my focus.’’ Mr Shaw said the response from the Frankston electorate to his decision to become an independent had been ‘‘50-50 — I’m still the same me, working for Frankston’’. He said Victorians’ loss of confidence in the leadership of the party was turning around under new premier Denis Napthine. “Ted’s polling was worse than Gillard’s in Victoria and that is a feat. Polls are already showing Denis is a strong leader and his quick response to the teachers’ EBA dispute shows he is on the ball.’’ Asked if he would return to the Liberal Party if invited by the premier, he said: ‘‘He’s [Mr Napthine] got a lot of other things to do before that but I won’t close any doors. If Ted had resigned nine hours earlier, I probably wouldn’t have.” Two weeks ago Mr Shaw voted for a Labor amendment that parents who had put their children up for adoption before 1984 should not be fined $8400 for contacting their now adult children, against their wishes. The amendment was unsuccessful, as the Liberals relied on the winning vote of Speaker Ken Smith. However, if Labor won the safe seat of Lyndhurst seat on Sat-

I’d prefer not to be in that position but it needed to be done. It was what was best for Frankston,” Mr Shaw said. Last week, Mr Shaw’s office would not confirm whether he had spoken to police about the alleged misuse of his parliamentary car for his Carrum Downs hardware business. Mr Shaw is also being investigated by the parliamentary privileges committee, which included

former corrections minister Andrew McIntosh, who stood down earlier this month after Mr Shaw complained he had spoken with a journalist about the committee’s findings, which have not yet been released. Mr McIntosh allegedly told the journalist that the privileges committee had found Mr Shaw guilty. But while Mr Shaw told the Weekly that ‘‘most people would have thought they [Mr McIntosh’s comments] were inappropriate’’, he said Mr McIntosh ‘‘went a bit far, resigning from his ministerial position”.

Australia’s ‘‘worst building’’ has been transformed for the better. But it seems ironic that the lovely view in the background — which is a major selling point for these apartments — will soon be replaced by another inappropriate very large high-rise building , even closer to the foreshore: the South East Water headquarters. From the angle that this photo was taken, the lovely view would be totally blocked out by what will be dubbed ‘‘the new worst building in Australia’’ if Frankston Council allows it to go ahead on this prime foreshore site, so recently public space. A much more suitable site would be the old law courts on the corner of Davey and Playne streets where South East Water can enjoy bay views without blocking out the lovely views in this photo, leaving this space for low-rise buildings , cafes and public space for which it was originally intended.

Frankston may get speedy broadband BY ALECIA PINNER THE broadband war of words intensified last week when the federal opposition promised to push high-speed broadband to Frankston if elected in September. During a tour of the new Quest development at the Peninsula by the Bay centre last Tuesday, opposition communications and broadband spokesman Malcolm Turnbull told the Weekly that Frankston would receive high-speed broadband within three years if Tony Abbott became prime minister. “Areas of greatest need would be prioritised for broadband, particularly commercial areas like Frankston,” Mr Turnbull said. Labor’s National Broadband Network is being rolled out to parts of Karingal and Langwarrin but a date has not been set for work to begin in central Frankston. Mr Turnbull said that under a Coalition government, the Frankston and Mornington central activities areas would receive broadband with an average speed of 50 megabits (per second) and a

minimum speed of 25 megabits within three years. Under this plan, faster fibre optic cable would be rolled out to the node, rather than to every household, meaning internet speeds would be slower than under the current plan. “The 25 megabit minimum will enable a household to stream four high definition videos at the same time. It is a very high speed . . . the savings will be very considerable. Broadband will be an estimated $300 a year cheaper under us,” Mr Turnbull said. Residents and businesses could “opt in” and pay for fibre optic cable “to their doors” if they felt they required higher speed internet connection, although most households would not need it. He said Labor had set a huge task by promising to run the fibre optic cable to each home. “The Labor broadband plan hasn’t ground to a halt, but it has come pretty close to it. The project is hugely behind and one of the big reasons is that it is painfully slow to take fibre down every street. Under the approach we’ve got, in

‘‘Instead of running a scare campaign, the Coalition should admit that their broadband policy short-changes the regions,’’ Mr Conroy said. ‘‘Under the coalition, people in regional and rural Australia will have to pay more for broadband than people living in the cities. And if families and businesses in the regions want world class broadband, they will have to pay up to $5000 to get it.”

RSL ‘blown away’ by Anzac Day crowds BY LEE OPITZ ORGANISERS say they were overwhelmed at the turnout to Anzac Day services around Frankston last Thursday. ‘‘Last year there were around 2500 at the dawn service and this year, I estimate we doubled that,’’ Frankston RSL president Brent Clyne said. At Seaford too, numbers were higher than ever before with an estimated 2000-plus in attendance at the main ceremony. Club president Wayne Fisher described the day as ‘‘wonderful’’. Mr Clyne said that while the unprecedented numbers at the dawn service caused some logistical problems with traffic and PA systems, he was ‘‘blown away’’ by the support and respect shown to past and present servicemen and women. He said a particularly moving part of the ceremony was an address by Violet Murphy, the granddaughter of Alec ‘Spud’ Murphy who was a survivor of the infamous Burma Railway.

Lest we forget: George Hodge of Baxter reflects before the service at Frankston.

Mateship: These two men reflect on the meaning of Anzac Day.

New generation: Defence cadets served as honour guard at the Frankston cenotaph.

Mr Fisher said the number of people who turned up at the Seaford ceremony was staggering. ‘I am a proud Australian, and think

Australia Day is very important. But Anzac Day is getting up there. It’s all about the children. We have put a lot of work into involving local schools

Running for a cause close to her heart BY SAMANTHA ROBIN IT has been a tough road for Nicole Challis over the past 12 months. After six rounds of chemotherapy, 25 doses of radiation therapy and surgery to remove a breast, Mrs Challis is in training for the four-kilometre Mother’s Day Classic fun run in Melbourne. The 41-year-old Langwarrin mother of two was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. With no history of cancer in the family, it came as a shock. She was alerted to the problem by a small lump in her armpit, which led to the discovery of a fivecentimetre tumour in her breast. She made the difficult decision to undergo a mastectomy, but said when faced with the possible alternatives it was a no-brainer. ‘‘They took out all the lymph nodes but they didn’t get a clear margin so they gave me the option to do another operation to get the rest of it or to remove the whole breast,’’ she said. ‘‘If there was still cancer, I wanted it removed. I figured I could be alive with one breast or dead

with two. After they took my breast out they found more cancer cells so I was glad I made the decision that I did. ‘‘We joked about it with the kids, when we told them the doctor was chopping one of my boobs off, my son said ‘I hope she’s not using a saw’. ‘‘My daughter still says to me ‘even though you only have one booby you are still beautiful’.’’ Even when having her hair shaved off, Mrs Challis joked about it. ‘‘The kids now refer to people with shaved heads as having ‘chemo hair’. Whenever I wore my red bandana, my son’s kindergarten friends thought I looked like a pirate.’’ Although upfront with her children about the experience, she hid the pain of treatment from them as best she could. ‘‘They didn’t understand how sick I felt from the chemotherapy, but having them gave me a reason to get up every day and keep going. ‘‘Not being there for them was and is my greatest fear. There were moments when I would tuck them into bed and read them stories that I thought ‘nobody can do this like I do it’.’’

Best foot forward: Nicole Challis trains for the Mother’s Day Classic fun run with daughter Mary. While Mrs Challis isn’t out of the woods yet she is feeling positive about the future. ‘‘Physically I am fantastic, mentally I look at life differently and value and appreciate what I have in my life,’’ she said. ‘‘I signed up for the Mother’s Day Classic because I wanted to get fit and I wanted to challenge myself to do something. ‘‘I looked at the research projects that have

been funded through the run and I can relate to it. You wouldn’t wish chemotherapy on your worst enemy so if I can prevent someone else going through that, it will be a good thing.’’ Mrs Challis has set herself a target of $5000 to raise through the run. To donate, visit mothers dayclassic.com.au and search for Nicole Challis under the online fund-raiser box. ■ Mum’s always on hand: page 13.

FEATURESTORY

On the job: Sergeant Bruce Buchan in front of an evidentiary breath-testing machine in a booze bus.

No joyride: One of the two booze buses at the scene.

Booze in the blood, V

eteran Frankston highway patrolman Bruce Buchan has a special gift for drivers excited by their first breath-test. ‘‘Some people want to be tested and go through the experience. So sometimes I give them the straw they blew into as a memento. It’s an icebreaker.’’ Speaking at Operation Haven, the first drinkdriving blitz on Peninsula Link, Sergeant Buchan watches as police chase down a driver who definitely wasn’t in the mood for a memento. After sudden shouts of ‘‘stop him, he’s doing a runner’’, a policeman runs beside the car and orders the driver, who was slowly but determinedly exiting the barricaded zone, to pull over at once. The result is a walk of shame to one of two booze-buses on the scene and a blood alcohol reading of .141. Sergeant Buchan is heading tonight’s operation in Frankston, between Cranbourne and Golflinks roads, which he promises is the first of many for the popular freeway that opened in January. As the traffic starts to back up for several kilometres, he hopes waiting motorists will understand the importance of the operation and not mind the minor delay. ‘‘We’re aware this type of operation causes some traffic congestion because of the nature of its set-up, but it’s important that motorists know they can be breath-tested on any carriageway.

Peninsula Link resembled a crime scene when police launched their first booze blitz there this month, SANDRA BULL reports. ‘‘As Peninsula Link has been embraced by the motoring public it has taken a lot of the volume from roads like the Moorooduc and Nepean highways and Frankston Freeway. So there’s a chance where people might be using this when under the influence of alcohol.’’ Peninsula Link’s operators were contractually required to provide the wide bay at the side of the freeway for blitzes. The design appears to be working well. Despite two massive booze buses and Frankston SES vehicles providing lighting, there’s plenty of room for motorists to be waved in by an officer brandishing a fluoro light. Six trainees from the police academy are lined up to test drivers in the surprise blitz which runs from about 8pm to midnight. Others are taking a meal break so they will be ready to swap over. Members of the Frankston, Rosebud and Hastings highway patrols are also there to lend a hand and make spot roadworthy checks. There’s no pattern: cars pulling horse floats, taxis, tradies in utes, mums with kids in the back of sedans are all politely requested to ‘‘blow, blow, stop’’ into the straw of a handheld device that provides a guide to how much alcohol, if any, has been downed.

[ 10 ] FRANKSTON WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

April 30, 2013

If alcohol over the legal limit of .05 is detected in this preliminary test, drivers are taken to a booze bus to breathe into a machine for an evidentiary test that provides a precise reading. The 13-metre behemoth is divided into three sections. The seven-seat drivers’ cabin — complete with sink, microwave, kettle and small fridge — is where the crew sit when travelling to a job. The middle and third sections, separated by a door, mirror each other with a breath-testing machine, a computer to check licences and prior offences, and a desk with a chair that doesn’t have rollers on its legs, for obvious reasons. It’s light years away from the basic minibus that Sergeant Buchan used to travel in and chairs that were lashed to boards. But the essential function remains the same: getting drunks off the road and sending the message to passing drivers that breath-testing can happen anywhere, any time. You get the feeling that the softly spoken sergeant, who has been a highway patrol member intermittently since 1986, has seen it all it his 36 years in the force. While he’s lost count of how many blitzes he’s been involved with, he never forgets the human

toll, saying knocking on a door to tell someone a loved one has been killed or paralysed in a road accident is probably the most traumatic aspect of the job. ‘‘But [overall] it’s very rewarding and one of the jobs where you can actually make a difference.’’ He’s aware of all the tricks some drivers will pull, and says the system is designed to beat them all. If a driver refuses to blow, he or she is legally required to give a blood sample. ‘‘Some people claim they can’t blow due to asthma. They also blow out the side of their mouth or put their tongue over the straw. If that happens I warn them I will charge them and they could lose their licence longer than if they had completed the breath-test, so it’s a gamble.’’ The typical excuse is ‘‘I didn’t think I drank that much’’. Experienced police know that if someone’s said they’ve downed two drinks, it’s often at least double that. Sometimes it’s been two very big drinks. A standard wine glass is 100 millilitres. But if someone has enjoyed two oversized glasses, they’ve had way more alcohol than they realise. Sergeant Buchan recommends drivers don’t drink alcohol at all, or at least be aware of how much they have had and alternate with water. But he’s also come across some innocent mishaps.


Pass or fail: Drivers line up to be tested.

hands on the wheel ‘‘It’s pretty rare. But we had one person who had been eating those beautiful cherry liquor chocolates and it did register high. Mouthwash can also indicate alcohol if you’ve just had a swig and driven down the road.’’ In both cases, a 15-minute wait before being re-tested means the alcohol is out of their system and they can continue on their way. Those who have been caught drink-driving, however, must leave their cars behind and arrange a lift. Sergeant Buchan is philosophical but unforgiving about the risks people are prepared to take behind the wheel. ‘‘Humans have failings. Why do they speed when they know there are speed cameras? ‘‘But there is an apathy out there. There’s big [road safety] campaigns every year and the next day you catch someone who has had a skinful . . . in this day and age of instant news gratification, people can see the results of carnage and yet people still drink and drive.’’ Hastings highway patrolman Leading Senior Constable Adrian Shelbourne, who is helping out at the operation, is equally frustrated by drivers willing to risk lives. He often gives road safety lectures at schools and the HMAS Cerberus training base and has plenty of hair-raising on-the-job examples to share with his audiences. ‘‘A lady in her 70s was driving about three weeks ago in Somerville and blew .16 at

CRUISYLINK

TESTING TIMES

IN an unexpected benefit, Peninsula Link has drastically cut the number of major accidents in the Frankston region. Frankston SES controller Brian McMannis said: ‘‘Since Peninsula Link opened, we’ve been very quiet for the major road accidents where we’re called out to use the Jaws of Life to cut out people trapped inside.’’ Mr McMannis, who was with a Frankston SES crew to assist with lighting at Operation Haven, said a range of factors may be driving down the accident rate. ‘‘Peninsula Link is a better road and there’s not the stopping and starting at intersections. Drivers may also feel that as they’re getting to their destination faster they don’t need to make time up.’’ As alcohol plays a role in many accidents the SES attends, Mr McMannis was happy to be involved with the first Peninsula Link blitz. ‘‘I think it’s a good thing. If we can get drinkdrivers off the road it’s going to help our cause.

EVIDENTIARY breath-tests in the Frankston police service area in 2012: 406. Of these, 27 were within the limit. The rest were over .05 or P-platers who should have had a zero blood alcohol content. The highest reading was .306 from a 46 year old man. The highest reading from a female was .216. Evidentiary breath-tests in the Mornington Peninsula police service area in 2012: 564. Of these, 29 were within the limit. A 40-yearold woman who blew .281 had the highest reading for females in both police service areas.

11.30am. She had already lost her licence after a medical review. ‘‘When I asked her why she was driving she said ‘I had to go to the bottle-o to get more wine as I had drunk it all’. She was that far gone she had no idea she was heading home.’’ Another breath-test in Somerville about a week ago resulted in a man blowing .233

despite ‘‘looking as sober as a judge’’. He is particularly frustrated by P-platers who flout the law by drinking alcohol. Although the offenders are mostly male, there are a few young women too. ‘‘It’s just a game to them . . . it’s a misconception of indestructibility.’’ Leading Senior Constable Shelley’s main message is that drink-driving affects all of us.

Infringement notices are issued for first offences under .15. Drivers with readings of .15 or more must appear before a magistrate and their licence can be cancelled for at least 15 to 48 months. Varying financial penalties apply in both cases.

‘‘The most risk people will be exposed to in their daily life is in the car as you have no control of what’s around you.’’ As the operation winds up, there’s one last ‘customer’ being tested. Three passengers, aged 13, 15 and 17, shiver by the side of the road as the driver — the father of two of them — waits for his result. By the time the dad emerges from the booze bus, the youngsters have been picked up by a family friend. Sergeant Buchan asks the father if he passed the breath-test. ‘‘Yeah, with flying colours, not,’’ is the response. But the consequences of doing the walk of shame to the booze bus where he blew 1.02 — about twice the legal limit — has chastened the country Victorian who came to the peninsula to visit a mate. ‘‘Long story short, it was a bad, bad, decision,’’ he tells the Weekly while waiting for a lift. ‘‘It was my fault and you’ve got to wear on the chin what you do. ‘‘It’s the worst decision I ever made.’’

No haven Drivers were given 1140 preliminary breath tests during Operation Haven. Six of those were caught drink-driving, with .141 the highest reading. Six penalty notices for unregistered vehicles and 10 defect notices were issued.

MOTHER’SDAY

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Traditions vary but the message is the same nother Mother’s Day is approaching where mums all around Australia are spoilt with breakfast in bed and homemade gifts from their little ones. Mother’s Day is marked in more than 46 countries and with different traditions. In Belgium, children make little presents at primary school, which they give to their mothers in the morning of Mother’s Day. The father will often buy croissants and other sweet breads and pastries and bring these to the mother while she is still in bed. In Japan, people typically give their mothers flowers such as red carnations and roses. Celebrations for mothers are believed to date back hundreds of years ago to ancient Greece and Rome. A particular day is much more recent, and mainly credited in the United States to Anna Jarvis and Julia Ward Howes. The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in America. She then campaigned to make Mother’s Day a recognised holiday.

Julia Ward Howe tried to establish a Mother’s Day for Peace in the 1870s. In Australia, Janet Heyden is credited with starting the tradition of giving gifts to mums. In Sydney in 1924, she visited a patient at the Newington State Home for Women and was inspired to encourage schoolchildren and businesses to donate or bring gifts to lonely mums. While we salute our mothers in Australia on the second Sunday of May, other countries celebrate at different times.

Injury a blow for top ruckman BY MORGAN COLE FRANKSTON YCW champion Ash Eames’ career hangs in the balance over a serious knee injury he suffered in the Stonecats’ 16-point win over Karingal at Ballam Park on Saturday. The ruckman hyperextended his knee in the third quarter of the victory and took no further part in the clash. He was due to undergo scans yesterday to determine the extent of the injury. Eames, 33, said he was preparing himself for the worst-case scenario. It would mean one of the most highly regarded ruckmen in country football would be forced to have a knee reconstruction on a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament. But he is hanging on to hope that it might be a posterior cruciate ligament and he could return late in the season as the Stonecats chase a fourth straight premiership. ‘‘I landed awkwardly and hyperextended my knee and it locked up,’’ Eames said. ‘‘It could be a PCL, which would keep me out for about six weeks. ‘‘I won’t really know anything until after the scans. Hopefully it’s just some bone bruising, but I

am preparing for the worst: the ACL, which would keep me out for the year.’’ Eames has been a regular MPNFL interleague player and enjoyed a stellar VFL career with Springvale and Frankston Dolphins. Mt Eliza ended its three-game losing streak, overcoming Bonbeach by 18 points in a Peninsula League match at Bonbeach on Saturday. Redlegs coach Jason Watts was relieved to end the rocky start and put his side’s season back on track. ‘‘The boys acquitted themselves really well,’’ he said. ‘‘We had our backs against the wall and they came out and played really good footy.’’ The first half produced some scrappy football with the swirly conditions not favouring either end. Mt Eliza went in with a slightly different forward line with defender Sam Gill moving to the goal square and former captain Dave Willett playing deep in attack with plenty of effect to finish with four majors. Bonbeach coach Steve Capp was disappointed with the loss but paid full credit to the desperate Mt Eliza side. ‘‘It was one we really wanted to win, but they handled the conditions a lot better than we

did. We just couldn’t match them in the important parts of the game.’’ The second quarter was far more free-flowing with goals starting to come for both sides. Mt Eliza forward Ben Lean made the most of his chances with four goals. Bonbeach ruckman Dylan Jones lodged another strong performance for his new club and got the better of talented Mt Eliza ruck duo Matt Lillie and Will Suhr. Despite the Sharks’ ruck dominance Redlegs onballer Karl Lombardozzi was a class above through the midfield, earning him the Anzac Day medal. Willett had a stellar final term, giving Mt Eliza the edge when going forward, allowing them to run out winners by 18 points. In other Peninsula League matches, Mornington steamrolled Chelsea by 78 points, Bulldogs forward Adrian Speedy dominating with five goals. Pines smashed Langwarrin by 68 points. Seaford made it three wins on the trot, defeating Edithvale-Aspendale by 28 points. For more MPNFL reports and pictures visit frankstonweekly.com.au.

Howzat for a Thai cricket vacation CRICKET is not usually something you associate with Thailand — the mind usually leaps to tuc tucs, full moon parties and shopping. Eight senior cricketers, who play for Baden Powell’s B3 team, travelled to Thailand to play in the Hua Hin International Cricket Sixes Tournament. While Baden Powell won the over-50s division the open grades had former Australian or state representatives such as Mick Lewis, Sean Graf, Dan Worrell and David Bandy playing for various teams.
