Cashed up but no guarantees BY LEE OPITZ MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council has allocated $1.5 million to upgrade three of its preschools — but can’t guarantee the projects will go ahead. At its September 24 meeting, the council decided to set aside funding in its 2013-14 capital works budget. Baxter preschool will get the biggest share — $900,000 earmarked for its $1.2 million redevelopment. Bentons Square and Sorrento preschools will get $400,000 and $200,000 respectively. But any council funding will be contingent on a $300,000 grant already provided by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development for the Baxter project still being available, and if funding applications for the other two projects are successful. Last November, the shire applied to the department for capital funding of up to $300,000 for six of its centres. Three, including Baxter, were successful. The funding was also contingent on the council providing the balance for each pro-

ject and would be valid only for 12 months. This was confirmed by a department spokeswoman. ‘‘The conditions of funding specify that the applicant must have the capacity to complete the project within 12 months of receiving the funding and that any costs for the project that are not met by the grant must be met by the organisation,’’ she said. However, Baxter preschool president Sharon Howell said that after discussions with relevant departments she was confident funding from both sources would be available. ‘‘Our original plan was to increase our licensed capacity to 30 but we’re now looking to increasing that up to 48, effectively doubling our capacity. ‘‘This will be a much bigger project with a new playroom, storage and office space. We need more time to develop the plans and have been advised that we should not have a problem getting an extension.’’ While not confirming the time extension, the council’s early years community facilitator Karen McFarland said the grant for Baxter preschool was received in July this year and

COVER: Mornington twins Jackson and Samuel, 4. See page 16. Picture: Daryl Gordon

was less than three months into the funding period. ‘‘The shire will work with the preschool and the department in determining timelines.’’ Baxter preschool was already earmarked for the 2013-14 capital works program, as were Waterfall Gully and Hastings Wallaroo preschools. These last two projects are no longer seen as a high priority due to changes in population demand and the construction of the Rosebud community hub in Allambie Avenue. Bumping Bentons Square and Sorrento higher on the list is also expected to save the council about $400,000 on the projected budget. The new Bentons Square early learning centre is expected to cost $1 million and the Sorrento preschool refurbishment $500,000. In a report to the council, Ms McFarland said all three projects would benefit their communities and offer certainty to families seeking to enrol their children in future years. A second round of grants were offered in June this year and applications were made for an additional $300,000 for Sorrento Preschool and $600,000 for Bentons Square.

Plotting a spring garden gala AFTER sharing their labour of love with the community for 20 years, Reg and Elaine Smith will open their impressive Mt Eliza garden ‘Earimil’ for the final time next month. Over the years the couple have raised almost $1 million charities Redkite and Very Special Kids through the Open Gardens scheme. Mrs Smith is sad this will be the last year taking part but they intend to show Earimil for tour groups of more than 25 people. ‘‘We’re pushing 80 now and setting up for the big weekend openings is just getting too hard,’’ she said. ‘‘We’ve had an incredible time doing it and the comments from the community just kept spurring us on.’’

Crescent, Mt Eliza, will open 10am-4.30pm, November 10-11. Entry: $12.50, adults; children free. Details: earimilgardens.org.au.

October is Community Safety Month, when Victorians have a chance to take part in activities and events and learn about making our community a safer place to live and work. This year, October also gives us an opportunity to hand in any unwanted or illegal firearms and weapons without fear of prosecution. As part of a state-wide amnesty until November 30, residents can voluntarily surrender firearms, knives and any other weapons. No questions asked — we just want them off our streets. In past amnesties we’ve seen machetes, swords, handguns and air rifles handed in and hunting

knives, butcher knives and flick knives surrendered. We’ve also seen laser pointers and imitation firearms — those that aren’t so obviously a prohibited weapon. And we’ve seen cases of items — like antique firearms — being found in back sheds that are no longer needed but which could pose a threat in the wrong hands. The process can be an anonymous one. People are encouraged to ring their police station before bringing items in. All weapons must be wrapped in paper, plastic or cloth and transported to a police station in a safe and secure manner.

Swamp battle goes to tribunal BY SAMANTHA ROBIN TOOTGAROOK Swamp activist Cameron Brown has taken his battle to stop the development of the swamp to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. His lawyer Ashley Galvin said they should find out in the next fortnight whether the case would go to a hearing after the Mornington Peninsula Shire attempted to have the matter thrown out. Mr Galvin is arguing on behalf of Mr Brown that a planning permit for the development of a 42-lot subdivision at 85 Elizabeth Avenue, Rosebud West, expired in March 2009. Mr Galvin said the attempt by the shire’s planning department to extend the permit in August last year was unlawful. As a result, Mr Brown claims recent works carried out on the site have

been done without a valid permit and should be stopped. Mr Brown said the VCAT hearing came at a poignant time. “The Tootgarook Swamp is finally being recognised as a wetland of international significance,’’ he said. ‘‘The permit died a long time ago and if the landowner now wants to develop the land in a way that will dramatically affect all the flora and fauna that live there, it should go through the proper channels.” Ironically, the council passed a motion on August 27 to receive a report and work on developing a Tootgarook Wetlands strategy in conjunction with relevant federal and state authorities. The purpose of the strategy is to ensure that the ‘‘vitality and sustainability of the wetlands is protected from inappropriate development and use’’.

Artist sets sail with award triumph TWO Mornington Peninsula artists have been recognised in the 2012 Maritime Art Award. Mt Martha resident Jo Vautier was named winner of the 2012 Bendigo Wealth Emerging Artist Award, taking home $5000 for her piece Big Ships 5. The winning piece has already attracted a buyer. Vautier said the winnings would go a long way towards covering her materials for future art pieces. ‘‘My materials aren’t that expensive so it will cover quite a lot,’’ she said. ‘‘Where I live in Mt Martha I see ships come in all the time so many of my pieces have ships in them. I also do a lot of pieces with beach boxes and native flora.’’ Vautier was inspired to enter the competition after reading an article about another local artist, Bridgit Thomas of Rosebud West, who had participated in the award. Thomas was named a finalist for two of her pieces at this year’s awards but narrowly missed winning a title. The exhibition is on display at the Mission to Seafarers Victoria, 717

Works set for Esplanade

Tributes paid to young soldier

WORKS are scheduled to start early next month on the Esplanade in Mt Martha to repair damage from the June 4 landslide. VicRoads regional director metro southeast Peter Todd said that weather permitting, works were expected to be completed before Christmas. He said the landslip occurred after heavy rain and storms damaged a number of roads across the state. ‘‘VicRoads geotechnical engineers perform periodic risk assessments on the road network in accordance with well defined procedures relating to geotechnical hazard risk management,’’ Mr Todd said. ‘‘The slip occurred on the foreshore side of the road, where there are significant natural values, including diverse native flora and fauna and cultural heritage sites. ‘‘VicRoads has been working closely with a number of agencies to ensure that the necessary approvals and legislation requirements are met.’’ The Esplanade has been closed on the section of road between Bradford and Hearn roads, causing problems for motorists. — Samantha Robin

TRIBUTES have poured in for a Mornington soldier who died after a truck crash at Sydney’s Holsworthy Range army barracks. NSW police and the Defence Department continue to investigate the cause of the crash that claimed the life of 22-year-old sapper Jordan Ronald Penpraze (pictured) of Mornington. A Defence official revealed the soldier, who had been in a critical condition in a Sydney hospital since the accident last Monday week, died last Thursday from his injuries. Sapper Penpraze enlisted in the army on April 3 and was just days away from graduating from his training, said Lieutenant-Colonel Allan Hollink, of the Australian Army’s School of Military Engineering. ‘‘He had just completed his final field assessment and was due to graduate this week as a sapper in the Royal Australian Engineer Corps,’’ he said. “The Australian Army has lost one of its newest soldiers.’’ Sapper Penpraze was one of 18 men injured when their open-top vehicle careered off the side of the road and rolled several times during an exercise at Holsworthy. Sapper Penpraze had been in a critical condition since the accident and his family faced the

heartbreaking decision to switch off his life support on Thursday last week. Of the soldiers who sustained injuries in the accident, one remains in hospital and three others are being treated for injuries in military medical centres. All are in a satisfactory condition. The 13 other soldiers have now been released

T: 03 5979 5500 www.portofhastings.com

from hospital care and support for the soldiers is being provided by military health facilities. Lieutenant-Colonel Hollink said the young Victorian’s death had come as a shock to the army. ‘‘The army is a family, and we are in mourning. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jordan’s family, his friends and his mates. Our focus at the moment is on providing them with emotional and welfare support as they deal with this terrible loss.” A respected member of 3 Troop, the baseball and outdoor enthusiast has been remembered as a quiet and stoic sapper with a selfless commitment to his mates. At the end of question time in federal Parliament last week, MPs expressed their condolences. ‘‘A very young man, a very young soldier has died,’’ Prime Minister Julia Gillard said. Veterans Affairs Minister Warren Snowden described the death as ‘‘very sad’’. ‘‘It is a reminder to us all that being in the ADF is dangerous, whether in Afghanistan or here at home in training.’’ Mr Snowden talked of Sapper Penpraze’s ‘‘quick thinking’’ when he and another soldier resuscitated an elderly citizen when on leave in Liverpool. — The Age with Samantha Robin

PLANS for a boutique brewery at Cape Schanck have left nearby residents disillusioned. Multi-millionaire businessman and Computershare founder Chris Morris has successfully applied for a planning permit to build a boutique brewery, organic farm, restaurant and function centre at 275 Cape Schanck Road near the Bass Strait coast. Mr Morris also got approval for a caretaker’s residence and plant nursery on the site. The brewery, planned on rural land that hugs the shore near Cape Schanck lighthouse, attracted objections from residents concerned about its impact on native animals, vegetation, safety for the main entrance way and surrounding roads and the potential odours from the beer-making process. The lack of a local grain or hops supply were also points of contention. A resident, who wanted to remain anonymous, said he was considering moving out of his home of 30 years because of the turmoil he had already gone through in objecting to the project. ‘‘I have lost the will to fight against it,’’ he said. The process had been going on for more than two years and his objections had made no difference to the final outcome. ‘‘I feel greatly let down by the powers that be.’’

He said his main concerns were for safety in the area. ‘‘I’m worried about people driving down Boneo Road after visiting a brewery. There is no public transport there at all, so how do they expect people to get home after drinking there all day?’’ Colonial Leisure Group owns a string of Melbourne and Perth restaurants and has recently taken full ownership of the Portsea Hotel. Mr Morris already owns a boutique brewery, the Colonial Brewing Company, in Western Australia’s Margaret River region. About 64 objections were lodged against the Cape Schanck proposal before it went to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, where it was approved in late August after extensive mediation. The VCAT has, however, placed restrictions on the use of the land, limiting the brewery to using hops grown exclusively on the surrounding farm unless it gets approval from the council. Colonial Leisure Group director Lawrence Dowd said the Cape Schanck brewery would be bigger than its WA operation. He said the $6.8 million project would create significant job opportunities and bolster tourism in the area. — Samantha Robin with Simon Johanson/The Age

Community input sought on fires info BY SANDRA BULL

Date with the calendar girls The Southern Peninsula Players are tackling popular play Calendar Girls in more ways than one. Just like their characters, the cast of women have posed in the buff (with strategically placed props) to raise money for the group and to promote its November season. The much-loved play tells the story about the Rylstone Women’s Institute in North Yorkshire, which each year produces a calendar for the town. Following the death of one lady’s husband, 12 middle-aged women decide to pose naked for a calendar and raise a little money for the hospital. The calendar becomes a worldwide success. The cast’s fun calendar will be launched at the play’s opening night on November 8. Calendar Girls will be staged at the Rosebud Memorial Hall from November 8-18. Tickets and calendar order forms are available online at spptheatre.org, or by calling 5982 2777.

Community information guides, previously known as township protection plans, are produced by the CFA, local government and local communities, and are a key source of information about bushfire preparation and planning. “Community information guides contain detail about a town’s bushfire history, terrain, vegetation and access routes,” CFA township protection planning co-ordinator Jane Fontana said. “They also have community maps with key landmarks, routes, bushfire survival options and neighbourhood safer places-places of last resort where available. “To make these guides as local and relevant as possible, we are seeking community input so they reflect what is important and useful to the local community.” Two community sessions will be held on Sat-

A NEW wine bar in Mt Martha is capturing the attention of locals. The bar, named Mr Curtis and set up by Lyndal Barnes, the owner of the Brass Razu in Mornington, has added to the attractions of the seaside village. While Mr Curtis has been operating as a cafe for three months, a liquor licence was granted less than a fortnight ago. Although Mornington Peninsula Shire Council approved the liquor licence, objections meant the matter was taken to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, which recently granted approval. Ms Barnes said she loved the community atmosphere in Mt Martha and wanted to add something different to the market. ‘‘We want it to be a local place where people can come for a drink and relax, while taking in the sunset,’’ she said. ‘‘We felt Mornington was becoming too busy and we wanted to do something more intimate.’’

Ms Barnes gained inspiration for the name of the wine bar from her son Curtis, now aged four — much to the resentment of his younger brother, who feels it should have been named after him. ‘‘When he was a baby, we always referred to him as Mr Curtis for some strange reason. When I told friends and family I was opening another wine bar they all said I should call it Mr Curtis and no other name really felt right. ‘‘Now he claims the place as his own. He comes in and has a hot chocolate and banana bread and thinks he is pretty cool.’’ Ms Barnes is excited about having a kitchen and being able to offer a broader menu. ‘‘I wanted to focus more on the food, so we have put a big emphasis on that,’’ she said. ‘‘Looking out over the water as the sun goes down, it is a pretty beautiful place.’’

A ROSEBUD man was released on bail last week after an incident in which police fired a warning shot. The man, Jesse Cairns-Malcolm, 23, was arrested at 6.30pm on October 9 after police went to an address in Carrington Drive, Rosebud, to speak to him about a theft. Police allege that when officers arrived, Cairns-Malcolm had armed himself with a variety of weapons and made repeated advances on officers. They used capsicum spray in an attempt to subdue him, but police allege he advanced on one officer while armed with a knife. The officer fired a shot and the bullet lodged in the ground. Police also allege Cairns-Malcolm threw weapons and burned items at police, damaging at least one police vehicle. Cairns-Malcolm appeared before magistrate Julie O’Donnell at the Frankston Magistrates Court last week and was released on bail to reappear before the court next month. He is facing various assault charges, including assaulting police, weapons offences and possessing ammunition, criminal damage and theft.

Cairns-Malcolm must abide by residential and medical requirements while on bail. No plea was entered.

Mornington assault A second man has been charged over a bashing in Mornington that left a Rosebud man with serious injuries On Saturday, a 23-year-old Mornington man was charged with intentionally causing serious injury. He was released on bail and is due to appear in Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Thursday. His co-accused Kyle Pollard, 22, was arrested about 6am on October 9 and charged with assault-related offences, including intentionally causing serious injury. Pollard appeared briefly before Frankston Magistrates’ Court the same day, and again on Monday at the Melbourne Magistrates Court. His case was adjourned until January 21 next year and he was remanded in custody. The charges relate to an incident at the Empire Mall about 3.40am on September 16 after which Mical Jones, 28, was hospitalised with serious head and facial injuries.

MEMBERS of Dromana Bowls Club are providing people with disabilities the opportunity to get involved in the sport and make new friends. For the past three years the club has been running an all abilities bowls program started by member Peter Raymond and with the help of 16 volunteers. Each Monday over the summer months, about 20 clients from disability support groups Konnections in Rosebud, Focus Dromana and Blairlogie in Pearcedale visit the club for a game of bowls. ‘‘Disabilities range from cerebral palsy to sight impairment. It’s a fabulous program and we all enjoy it so much,’’ Mr Raymond said. ‘‘Our aim is to include a few clients into our Wednesday social bowls night.’’ In recognition of the program, the club received a $900 grant to buy uniforms for the volunteers through the state government’s sporting uniform grants program. ‘‘The club felt it would be better to have clearly identifiable uniforms for our volunteers to make it easier for participants and their carers to seek assistance from

It’s Torie’s business SORRENTO businesswoman Torie Mackinnon is aiming for a trifecta when she competes in the national Telstra Businesswoman of the Year awards next month. The 28-year-old managing director of Moonraker Dolphin Swims was not only declared RACV’s 2011 winner for eco-tourism and the national winner in the Qantas tourism awards earlier this year, but has also just been named as the 2012 Telstra Victorian young businesswoman of the year. Moonraker Dolphin Swims was started in 1990 by Ms Mackinnon’s mother Sandy, who has been involved in marine tourism since the 1970s. The mother and daughter team have built the business to include two tour vessels — the flag ship vessel Moonraker and a smaller boat which offers personalised tours with a strong focus on marine education. As the company’s managing director, the younger Mackinnon has a passion for the marine environment and donates a percentage of proceeds from each eco-cruise ticket sale to fund research and protection projects on the local seal and dolphin population.

State winner: Victoria’s young businesswoman of the year, Torie Mackinnon.

AUSTRALIA DAY Saturday 26th January 2013 on Mornington Peninsula

In the swim

Tash is riding high aving a passion for horse riding and a desire to help others has led Natasha (Tash) CrawleyBoevey to work with Riding for the Disabled. As a volunteer for RDA in Tuerong on the peninsula, she finds it extremely motivating to see the progress the children make and the confidence they gain while riding the horses. Ms Crawley-Boevey, who has been working at RDA for more than two years, has been awarded Aussie of the Month for September by the program sponsor, Commonwealth BankDromana. “It is so rewarding seeing the children progress and enjoy the experience, and the people who I work with are so lovely. ‘‘My experience with RDA has been part of my decision to train to be a teacher after VCE,’’ Ms CrawleyBoevey said.

H

Her nominator, Scott Wightwick of Riding for the Disabled, says Ms Crawley-Boevey has been a compassionate volunteer. ‘‘She has been giving up her Saturdays for over two years working with children with disabilities at RDA Peninsula. It takes considerable skill to interact with both rider and horse and this is not learnt quickly. It is wonderful to have such a wonderful young person give up her time to help others.” Aussie of the Month is a new initiative, aimed at under-21 year olds who have made a significant contribution to the community. This could be volunteering, being an inspiration to others, or showing community leadership. Running each month until December, the program is sponsored by the Commonwealth Bank with $250 donated to each winner.

he Mt Martha Australia Day (MMAD) swim is the Mt Martha Lifesaving Club’s major event for the season. The swim will again incorporate a five-kilometre swim, starting at 8am, as well as the regular events — 200 metres nippers 9.30am, 400 metres novice 10am and the feature race, the 1.2-kilometre MMAD swim at 11am. Swimmers assemble at the lifesaving club and the feature race takes in a challenging but enjoyable open water swim in a diamond-shaped course. For the real diehards, the Crazy Combo of the 1.2-kilometre and the five-kilometre will again have a multievent discount. The popularity of the ‘team’ entry at no extra cost means it is back again. Nominate your friends, workmates or swim club as a team and be in the running for the coveted team trophy. For more details, call Craig on 0411 129 313.

FEATURESTORY Are twins twice the fun or double trouble? SAMANTHA ROBIN speaks to parents who have experienced the ups and downs of multiple births.

Baby joy at the double hen Carrum Downs resident Milena Burridge discovered she was having twins, it came as a huge surprise — twins don’t run on either side of the family. ‘‘It was a shock,’’ she says. ‘‘My husband was excited. I was a little worried about possible complications in the pregnancy but it all went well. You forget the hard parts, otherwise you wouldn’t do it a second time round.’’ When Mrs Burridge, 28, and husband Heath went back for ‘‘one more’’, she fell pregnant with her second set of twins. ‘‘I just saw the two sacs in the ultrasound and I knew it was twins again.’’ Now happily raising her two sets of fraternal, opposite-sex twins, Austin and Madison, 4, and Makenzie and Hudson, 2, Mrs Burridge says she wouldn’t have it any other way. ‘‘Because they are different sexes, it is just like having four individual kids,’’ she says. ‘‘It’s a struggle, but I have four, healthy, beautiful children.’’ Fraternal, or non-identical twins, share 50 per cent of their DNA, the same as any other siblings. Identical twins share all of their genes. Monash University obstetrics and gynaecology associate professor Beverley Vollenhoven says if conceived naturally, there is an 8 per cent chance of having non-identical twins. ‘‘Non-identical twins occur when the woman has two eggs in one cycle and they are both fertilised into separate embryos,’’ she says. Identical twins are much rarer, with less than a 1 per cent chance of them being conceived naturally. ‘‘Identical twins is a spontaneous occurrence where the woman ovulates one egg, which is fertilised into an embryo and the embryo then divides equally,’’ Dr Vollenhoven explains. There has been one known case reported in the Journal of Human Genetics of a set of semiidentical twins in America. The journal reports that the twins are identical on their mother’s side but share only half their genes on their father’s side. They are the result of two sperm cells fertilising a single egg, which then divide to form two embryos and each sperm contributed genes to each child. It’s a bizarre and rare occurrence but it does shed some light on why twins are so fascinating to medical professionals. Help is on hand for parents through the Australian Multiple Birth Association. Its Frankston Peninsula branch offers support for parents of twins or more — with most mothers joining from pregnancy. When the children are together with other sets of twins, they aren’t a novelty. It’s a place where many of the mothers, and the children, have made lifelong friendships and as Mornington residents Tracey, 43 and Emi Pascuzzo, 50, attest, ‘‘the online forums are keeping a lot of twin mummies sane’’. Their identical twin girls Amelia and Alexandra were conceived through IVF, with the help of

Dromana duo: Identical twins Charlotte, left, and Coco. Mrs Pascuzzo’s sister, who donated eggs so her sister could have a chance at motherhood. After a few unsuccessful attempts, the Pascuzzos were happy just to find out they were pregnant. ‘‘We didn’t think it would work, so we were surprised to have one baby. But when we found out we were having twins it was a lot to take in,’’ Mrs Pascuzzo says. ‘‘When you get that first scan and find out you are having twins, it is a day that is burnt in your memory forever. My first thought was ‘how am I going to cope’?’’ But once the initial shock wore off, joy and excitement took over. She says that during the first three months after the births, she and her husband were like a tag team. ‘‘One would settle one, while the other settled the other twin and we would just continue passing them backwards and forwards. You don’t stop — it’s constant.’’ And a word of caution to parents of individual or ‘singleton’ children. ‘‘Don’t ever tell a twin mummy it is the same as having two kids 18 months apart.’’ She says life with twins is a constant power struggle. ‘‘They love each other passionately but they hate each other passionately as well. They

will be holding hands one minute and wrestling the next.’’ And because they are the same size, there is never a clear winner. Mornington resident Jen Mackenzie, 38, knows the power struggle all too well. Her fraternal twin boys Jackson and Samuel, 4, are always competing against each another —

‘The idea of them both falling for the same girl horrifies me. They already have one female friend who they both really like.’ — Jen Mackenzie whether it’s a running race, toy cars or simply for her attention. ‘‘We toss a lot of coins,’’ Ms Mackenzie says. She thinks it is going to be easier to manage the twins as they get older but does have some fears about the future. ‘‘The idea of them both falling for the same girl horrifies me,’’ she says. ‘‘They already have one female friend who they both really like.’’ But there is a special bond between twins that

remains for the most part a mystery. When Jackson and Samuel were learning the difference between a dice and its plural, die, and were asked ‘what is the special word for two of something’ their response was ‘twins’. When five-month-old identical twins Charlotte and Coco Wanless went to have their infant needles, when one was getting the jab, the other flinched in the exact place her sister was getting the needle. Dromana parents Alicia and Brendan Wanless think their daughters will be terrorising teachers and playing tricks in the schoolyard before long. ‘‘If they are anything like I was as a kid they will be pretty naughty,’’ Mrs Wanless says. They family had to move out of their house and live with her parents when the twins came on the scene. ‘‘Our house just wasn’t big enough and this way I have mum here to help out with the girls. It takes three of us to bathe them. It’s a bit of a production line.’’ With twins on both sides of the family, it was no surprise to find out they were having their own and they wouldn’t be fazed if they had more. ‘‘I want another set, boys next time to even things out,’’ Mrs Wanless says. ‘‘At least I would know what I was in for.’’

Activity: Buy a bandanna and help young people fight cancer. When: All this month, including National Bandanna Day on Friday, October 26 What: Each year, about 18,000 12-24 year-olds are confronted with a cancer diagnosis, whether it is their own or that of a parent, brother or sister. CanTeen is the only national charity dedicated to helping young people fight cancer, no matter what their cancer experience.

Hotshots out to spread fun he Sydney Hotshots will soon bring their new Funtasia show to Frankston. With a spectacular opening choreographed to Nickleback, the show includes a new line-up of Sydney’s ‘hottest’ men entertaining with their best songs and dances. From ‘firemen’ to ‘Spartans’, along with a 1960s-inspired segment, the Sydney Hotshots’ show is packed with muscular bodies, dancing, acrobatics, comedy and a little romance. “We love touring because it means we get to share the fun and excitement of our show with hundreds of ladies all over Australia, from small towns to big cities,� performer Lucas Glover said. “It has every kind of music, routine and costume you can think of — and that’s probably why we continue to be so popular. ‘‘One of our favourite things is having the ladies up on stage. Whether it’s for a competition or as part of our routine, it’s so much fun and really makes the show interactive and intimate.�

Steelers’ Goal shooter makes waves new coach WESTERN Port Steelers have appointed Lauren Cooper as head coach of the Big V division 2 women’s program for next season. Cooper is no stranger to Western Port having been a star player during its golden era in 2010 and 2011 when it made the finals. The Steelers did not reappoint Janine Davies, who had coached the club for five seasons, with general manager Marc Pirrotta excited by the vision Cooper had for the club. ‘‘It was a really hard decision to appoint a new coach to the women’s team,’’ he said. ‘‘Janine Davies has given so much to our club over her five years at the helm and all of us at Western Port sincerely thank her for all that she has been able to achieve for Western Port’s women’s program. ‘‘But once we interviewed Lauren, we realised her vision for the program perfectly met ours and we couldn’t ignore that.” Cooper, who was the 2011 Big V division 2 MVP and is a two-time allstar centre, said she was excited to be taking over the Steelers. ‘‘The vision I have for the Western Port program moving forward is very similar to that of the club,’’ she said. ‘‘The club has a great vibe and atmosphere that I really like. I have built a relationship with both players and staff at Western Port over the past three years.” Cooper said she was in the process of reviewing the team for next season and highlighted the need for some fresh blood. ‘‘There are a number of players we will keep from the 2012 team,’’ she said. ‘‘We have some great players at Western Port, but there will be some changes and new additions for 2013. ‘‘I would like to include more players from the junior program and give them the experience to play at a higher level. ‘‘All players will need to meet a strong fitness and discipline level to obtain selection in this squad.” What will be a very clear priority for Cooper and Western Port is to develop a strong pathway from juniors to seniors. ‘‘The vision moving forward for the Western Port women’s Big V team is development and to create a strong pathway for juniors to move up to the senior level,’’ she said. In other positive news for the club, Justin Bourchier and Kenny Brunner have been reappointed as head coaches for the division 2 men and youth men’s teams respectively.

PENINSULA Waves star Mwai Kumwenda has capped a brilliant Victorian Netball League season with two individual accolades. The Waves goal shooter was awarded the Hot Shots award for the being the leading scorer in the championship division and was one of three who tied for the Margaret Caldow Trophy, for the most valuable player in the competition. Kumwenda, known as MJ to her teammates, tied with Monash University’s Helen Barclay and Yarra Valley Grammar Ariels’ Caitlyn Strachan. The import from Malawi was absent from the awards night, held on October 6, having returned to her home country. Waves administrator Shelley Haynes said Kumwenda was “right up there” in terms of the club’s best players in its short history. She said team manager Dot Mace accepted the award on behalf of Kumwenda. “It took the girls a while to get used to her game style but this season they were used to it and she was great,” she said. Kumwenda’s manager Hlupikire Phiri told Malawian newspaper The Daily Times that her family

and friends were extremely proud of the 22 year old. ‘‘We are very happy with her achievement. She has done us proud. Her exploits have also lifted Malawi’s flag high. It shows that people in Australia appreciate her skill and contribution in netball,’’ she said. Haynes also confirmed the Waves were close to confirming that Kumwenda would return to the Waves for a third season. She said credit must go to outgoing championship coach Robynn Pym for taking the punt on the international and incoming coach Maxine Wauchope for spotting Kumwenda representing Malawi at the world championships in 2009. “When Maxine was going over to the Cook Islands, Robynn said: ‘look, hey if you spot someone over there let us know’,” she said. “We’re in contract talks with Mwai at the moment and we want her back.” — Brad McGrath

Stingrays reward their finest BY BRAD McGRATH CONSISTENT Dandenong Stingrays midfielder Tim McGenniss has taken out the Dandenong Stingrays’ Justin Leppitsch best-and-fairest award. The dashing ball winner was given the nod from co-captain Jason Pongracic and much-improved Robert Hill at a presentation night at Dingley International Hotel on October 5. McGenniss, 18, established himself as one of the Stingrays’ prime movers this season with his strength in the air, run and carry and precise foot skills putting him in the mix to be drafted later this year. The Frankston YCW youngster polled in nine out of 18 games for a total of 107 votes to defeat the tough Pongracic by 25 votes. Pongracic played just 11 games for the Stingrays as he juggled AIS and Vic Country duties along with injuries but it was enough for him to be awarded the Chris Newman runners-up award. Hill, who also finished third in the Stingrays’ best and fairest last year, polled 77 votes from 13 games to win the Adam Ramanauskas award after receiving 86 votes from 15 TAC Cup games the previous

All winners: Dandenong Stingrays Ryan Marks-Logan, Robert Hill, Matt Rennie, Tim McGenniss, Nathan Foote, Jason Pongracic and Lewis Pierce pose with their awards after the club’s best and fairest night. season. Key forward-defender Matt Rennie won the Graeme Yeats Coaches Award for dedication and selflessness. Rennie played the role of a true utility last season, collecting 168 contested possessions for the year, as well as taking the most contested marks for the club. Small forward Clayton McCartney won the Stephen Milne Goalkicking Trophy with 23 majors from Rennie, who booted 22. McCartney has caught the eye of a number of AFL clubs despite not being eligible to be drafted until

next season, the speedy small coming second in goal assists behind potential No. 1 draft pick Lachie Whitfield. Ryan Marks-Logan was named Most Improved Player after cementing himself in the side on the back of numerous individual match-winning acts throughout the season. Ryan Morrison was awarded the Most Dedicated Trophy through his diligence, dedication and perseverance to games, training and off-field workloads. Nathan Foote won the inaugural Young Gun Award, which recognises a bottom-aged player who contributed well above expectations. Foote played 18 of a possible 19 games as a hardnosed small back pocket, finishing seventh overall in the best-and-fairest award. Talented 18-year-old ruckman Lewis Pierce won the trainers award for his efforts to overcome his long battle with knee tendonitis and growing issues. The Stingrays also recognised long-serving administrator Bev Chalmers for her work with the under16 squad with the prestigious club person of the year award. Two other Stingrays staff — Bob Riddle and Peter Bainbridge — were recognised for 20 years of service to the club.

Two from two for Palmer as he helps Frankston remain undefeated FRANKSTON remains the only undefeated side, and Frankston ace Sam Palmer the only undefeated player after round two of the Mornington Peninsula Table Tennis Association’s spring pennant season. Palmer had no trouble accounting for respected Mt Martha pairing Phil Bolitho and Stuart Sutherland and a win in the doubles with the experienced Jim Conlon secured a 3-2 win for the ladder leader last Thursday night. Mornington chalked up its first points of the October 17, 2012

season with a hard-fought 3-2 win over Langwarrin. In a match highlighted by the clash between sixtimes club singles champion Jarryd Cathcart and last season’s leading player Mark Flavel, it was Cathcart that took honours with a 4-2 victory. A doubles win was critical for Mornington when Cathcart’s partner Neil Hicks lost to Flavel, and then went down 13-11 in the seventh to lose a thriller against Langwarrin’s Paul Davies. The return of Dromana’s Luke Bronsema after

state duties was instrumental in securing victory for his side over Somerville. Bronsema won both singles matches, while victory in the doubles and a surprise win to Shane O’Connor over Somerville’s Sean O’Meara sealed a percentage boosting 4-1 win for Dromana. Greg Price and Graham Wallis remain Dromana A2 grades only undefeated players while Colin Sim, Alan Shaw and Jos Mathot have won two rounds to — Brad McGrath lead standings in A3 grade.


Hot bats put Baxter on back foot BY MORGAN COLE MORNINGTON is in strong position after compiling 195 runs in its first innings against reigning premier Baxter in an MPCA Provincial Shield cricket league match at Baxter Park on Saturday. Mornington won the toss and wasted no time in challenging the powerful opposition. Opening batsmen Rob Hearn and Anthony Gapes punished the Baxter bowling line-up. Baxter president and opening batter Darren Uccello was pleased with his side’s resilience despite the adverse weather conditions. ‘‘We were up against it. ‘‘They won the toss and it was pretty wet but we toiled hard,’’ he said. ‘‘We were happy with the total considering.’’ Batsman Rob Hearn guided Mornington to the tally with an impressive afternoon at the crease, hitting 124 off 190 deliveries before being caught by wicketkeeper Daniel Lanti off a Sam Wolsgrove ball. The New South Welshman is in his second year at the club and proving he is worth his weight in gold with the impressive performance against the reigning premier. ‘‘He is a very good player and has hit 50-60 runs against us a couple of times before,’’ Uccello said. Baxter had no trouble making its way through the rest of the Mornington batting line-up, with Brodie Symons hitting Mornington’s next best tally with 16 in his first appearance in the first XI. Baxter had Mornington all out after 68 overs and managed to fit in six overs with opening pair Uccello

Seaford shakes off shaky start and posts solid innings SEAFORD has salvaged a solid tally to throw down the challenge to Delacombe Park after a shaky start in their MPCA District clash at Delacombe Park on Saturday. Opening batter Jai Boyd lost his wicket for a duck, being run out after a communication breakdown with fellow opener Chris Cleef. Ryan McQueen fell shortly after. Cleef and Damien Lawrence were able to put things back on track for Seaford. Cleef managed 45 and Lawrence just cracked the half century with 51. President Andrew McMannis was pleased with Seaford’s efforts, the Delacombe Park ground causing headaches for the Seaford batting line-up. ‘‘At the end of the day we were pretty happy to get to 199,’’ McMannis said. ‘‘The ground was very lush, making it really hard to score.

‘‘You would hit a ball that would normally go for two and you would be lucky to get one out of it.’’ Boyd was not alone in being run out. Seaford’s last wicket fell to another run out, tail-ender Matthew Herbert suffering the same fate. Seaford offered fierce resistance all the way down the batting order, with captain and tail-end batsman Nathan Volpe hitting 35 and McMannis chipping in with 18. Volpe crossed over from Langwarrin last season bringing some much-needed experience to the relatively green Seaford first XI and gave his side Seaford plenty of impetus on day one. Delacombe bowler Steve Anderson was at his best, taking four wickets and putting all the pressure on the Seaford batting line-up. The Cleef and Lawrence batting combination was

paramount in keeping Seaford in a threatening position. ‘‘The partnership between Lawrence and Cleef help steadied us,’’ McMannis said. ‘‘Lawrence would be close to our best player. He is just really classy player and really important to our line-up.’’ In other District matches, Baden Powell was bowled out for 102 against Boneo which had put on 52 by close of play. Carrum chalked up 152 against Somerville in their first outing at the crease with Daniel Polson leading the way with 82. Main Ridge managed to put on 152 against Langwarrin, Gareth Wyatt having a stellar day with 90. Langwarrin slowly eased its way into its first innings with just 39 off 23 overs. — Morgan Cole

Rosebud bowlers put stranglehold on Dromana’s batting attack ROSEBUD is in the box seat to eclipse Dromana after its bowlers put it in a dominant position in their MPCA Sub District clash at Olympic Oval on Saturday. Dromana struggled to get any fluency in its batting from the outset, losing opener Jed Savage to a brilliant yorker from Scott Millar early in the game and eventually was dismissed for 55. Millar and Jason Nagel played a lone hand with 18 overs each, the latter claiming the brilliant figures

of 7-17. Dromana’s innings came to a close after 36 overs. Andrew Thomson batted bravely for Dromana to survive for 60 balls but struggled to just nine runs in a disappointing day. ‘‘They just bowled really well and we didn’t bat nearly as well as we could,’’ Dromana captain Jason Clarke said. Rosebud was relentless after dismissing Dromana and wasted no time with the bat, quickly making up

the ground and finishing the day on 34, captain Darren Kerr on 24no. The Buds will wrap the clash up early on Saturday to give them two wins from as many starts. In other Sub-District Shield matches, Seaford Tigers defeated Carrum Downs by 18 runs. Tootgarook is comfortably ahead of French Island heading into day two and is more than 100 runs in front after dismissing the Islanders for a paltry 44. — Morgan Cole October 17, 2012

Lacklustre Heat goes off the boil DISAPPOINTED Frankston Heat captain Matt Chasemore has vowed to remain positive despite a lacklustre Premier Cricket performance against Melbourne University at University Oval on Saturday. An old Achilles heel surfaced with the Heat making 8-168 from their 50 overs before an even more disappointing bowling performance allowed the Students to make the runs in the 41st over with the loss of just three wickets. ‘‘I know with the start that we had 200 should have been a minimum,’’ Chasemore said. ‘‘We should have made 30 or so extra after Chris Dew and Rob Salerni set us up but then Jimmy Miller, Scott Boland and Jack Benbow were all gone in the space of five balls and we had a silly run out at mid wicket.’’ Miller (1-40) and Scott Boland (1-34) put in strangely subdued performances, with the star pacemen giving away 19 sundries between them. Without an early breakthrough the Heat were always going to struggle to defend their total and Students’ openers Jarrod Martignago (75) and Jarrod Leggett (58) cashed in on the errant bowling. ‘‘It’s the senior group that didn’t deliver and like I’ve said all season if the senior group deliver we won’t lose too many games,’’ Chasemore said. ‘‘Yesterday the young guys delivered and the senior guys didn’t. ‘‘It was a disappointing day and I just said to the lads that we’re going to have a few ups and downs with the young group.’’ But the big positive to come from the day was a gutsy 69 not out by Dew to go with his half-century in his first match of the season. ‘‘Chris Dew has had the best preseason out of anyone — he looks like he’s ready to take the next step with his career,’’ Chasemore said. On a more positive note for the Heat, Chris McCormick made 75 from 71 deliveries to guide the second XI to a 19-run win over the Students. Chasemore said McCormick was likely to earn a call up to the first XI for Saturday’s clash against Footscray-Edgewater at A H Butler Oval. The Heat clash with Dandenong Panthers at Shepley Oval on Sunday, with both matches to be 50 over one day clashes. — Brad McGrath WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE
