Aquatic centre site backflip BY SAMANTHA ROBIN A LOCATION for the controversial Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre is again up in the air after councillors backflipped on a decision of its preferred site. At last week’s council meeting, the shire’s youngest and newest councillor, Andrew Dixon, successfully moved to rescind a motion passed on March 19 last year which named the foreshore as the preferred location for the aquatic centre, if approved by Environment Minister Ryan Smith. Cr David Garnock was absent from the meeting and Cr Graham Pittock abstained from voting, saying he was pairing with Cr Garnock. The rescission puts all locations back on the agenda. The vote came as Cr Pittock faces court action over an alleged conflict of interest over the aquatic centre. Following an investigation by the Victorian Local Government Investigations and Compli-

DUE to continuing depressed market conditions, this is the last issue of Peninsula Weekly. Metro Media Publishing has reluctantly made the decision to close in an environment where the economics of news publishing have changed rapidly. The Weekly’s associated website peninsulaweekly.com.au will continue, as will Facebook and Twitter services. The Dandenong Journal continues its proud tradition of almost 150 years in Dandenong. MMP is proud of the achievements of the Weekly and its predecessors and wishes to thank readers and advertisers for their kind support over many years. We hope that the Mornington Peninsula will continue to be well served by local press. — Greg Videon Editor, East Region ■

and resources. I welcome people to my squash court, gymnasium and restaurant to make up their own minds about whether they think there is a conflict of interest with an aquatic facility in Rosebud.’’ Two locations are currently being considered for the SPA — the foreshore and the Rosebud Central shopping centre site in Wannaeue Place, which the council bought last year for $5.1 million. Cr Dixon said he brought the motion forward so all locations for SPA could be investigated. The Wannaeue Place site would give Rosebud a commercial heart in a way the foreshore location could not, he said. Cr David Gibb said while he believed Cr Dixon had the right intentions in bringing the motion forward, it was naive. ‘‘It is being used as a way of killing off SPA,’’ he said. The council also resolved to consider whether the centre should be solely developed and funded by the council or in conjunction with another company or person.

ance Inspectorate, Cr Pittock was charged with two breaches of Section 79 of the Local Government Act for failing to declare a conflict of interest or leave the room during council meetings at which SPA was discussed and decisions made. Cr Pittock is the sole director, secretary and shareholder of Dromana Squash and Fitness Pty Ltd, a business the inspectorate said was expected to be directly affected by the development of a council-owned aquatic and leisure centre. The maximum penalty for each offence is about $16,900. Cr Pittock appeared before Dromana Magistrates Court on May 9. The case was adjourned to July and is likely to end up in the Frankston Magistrates Court for a full hearing. Cr Pittock told the Weekly on Thursday: ‘‘I feel I am innocent of any charges and [the inspectorate] is being foolhardy in trying to prosecute. I think it is total waste of revenue

I did not move to Red Hill (where I am within walking distance of the proposed site) to have a tip next door. We take great pride in showing our visitors around our beautiful area. If this goes ahead, instead of smelling the clean, fresh air when I walk in the morning, I will smell the putrid tip. Tips are usually well away from residential areas, such as the one at Lysterfield, not abutting a state park and only a short distance from residential homes. The whole idea is appalling and must be stopped. Why not ask the ratepayers what they think — it’s a disgrace. Leanne (via web)

local government to become recognised in the Constitution. Why on earth should ratepayers finance this? Why on earth should anyone want to enshrine a third tier of government in the Constitution? We are over-governed already, particularly based on the council’s past performance. Two tiers of government with associated politicians and public servants, are, in my opinion, more than enough.

Re: Beating odds, living life In response to your sordid article .... this is not a criticism of the disabled people but the fact you freely advocate fornication. God says in his holy word: ‘‘Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled. But whoremongers and adulterers God will judge (Hebrews 13:4).’’ The fact that a local newspaper can publish such filth, and that on its front cover in view of children, is an indication of just how far our society has degenerated.

increases, this time by 5.9 per cent or, honestly, by 7.6 per cent if you include the second rate — the ‘municipal charge’. The shire just looks at its expenses and justifies a rate increase. I guess they’ve never heard of productivity and efficiency studies to which the rest of the country is subjected. It must be asked: how many shire positions and functions are unnecessary, how many more functions can be contracted out to the lowest bidder and how many efficiencies can be gained? Even the tip is run so incompetently that they have to charge such outrageously high fees, causing people to have to dump on the roadside. The shire could probably be run by three people, a computer, and the state government.

Estate divides shire BY SAMANTHA ROBIN

G6012689AA-a4Jun©FCNVIC

A CHANGE to Mornington Peninsula Shire’s planning scheme aimed at stopping further subdivision in Mt Eliza’s Woodland estate will likely rest in the hands of Planning Minister Matthew Guy for approval. At a council meeting last week, councillors voted to adopt the amendment which limits block sizes to a minimum of 2500-squaremetres. Residents of the estate are divided over whether subdivision should be allowed there and it appears councillors too are divided on the issue. Mayor Lynn Bowden was forced to exercise her casting vote after councillors were split 5-5. Cr David Garnock was absent from the meeting. Changes to the amendment will not be reexhibited to the public. Cr Bev Colomb raised the question as to whether there were any legal ramifications associated with not re-exhibiting the amendment. Shire manager strategic planning Allan Cowley said that as far as he was aware, it was allowable to pass the amendment without re-

exhibiting. ‘‘Mandatory controls need to be put in place to keep that protection there,’’ Cr Colomb said. Further recommendations to the amendment mean the shire will also review its street tree policy and implement additional strategies to protect the neighbourhood character of the area. Cr Andrew Dixon said the C162 amendment was not sufficient to protect neighbourhood character. ‘‘The issue has been plaguing me for a while. There is a lot to protect in the area but locking it off doesn’t seem to be a fair deal to me. It is effectively locking the entire area off to my generation.’’ He said the amendment would contribute to making it ‘‘the Beverly Hills of Victoria’’. ‘‘It will become a pocket for the wealthier peninsulans [sic].’’ The question of bushfire management overlays and the right to remove vegetation on properties were also raised. Mr Cowley responded that human life was obviously the most important priority, far above neighbourhood character. Mr Guy will have the final decision on whether the amendment will be approved.

A ‘walk’ for for charity IT will be all ‘lights and sirens’ when a special group of emergency workers get together to raise money for a good cause next month. Local paramedics, firefighters and police have formed a team to take part in the 2013 Very Special Kids 24-hour treadmill challenge starting at 9am on July 12. The plan is to have one member of the team walking the treadmill every minute of the day to raise $5000 for VSK, which provides counselling and support services to more than 800 Victorian families caring for a child diagnosed with a life-threatening condition. Team captain and paramedic Shayna Gamble said most of the teams taking part were from corporate organisations and had fund-raising support from their employers. ‘‘Our team is relying on the support of our friends, family and the community to help us to reach our fund-raising goal,’’ she said.

Tip opposition grows BY LEE OPITZ OBJECTORS to a proposal to convert a former Arthurs Seat quarry into a rubbish tip say they will mobilise thousands of people to march on Mornington Peninsula Shire Council if it approves the application. Peninsula Preservation Group spokeswoman Lee Burton said there had been a groundswell of support for its campaign to have the council refuse an application from the Ross Trust, through its company Peninsula Waste Management, to convert the former Pioneer quarry adjacent to Arthurs Seat state park into a landfill. The Boundary Road site has been identified by the shire as the preferred location for a new landfill. However, the group says there are other alternatives including an existing tip in Hallam Road, Hampton Park, which has a predicted lifespan of another 30 years. Ms Burton said about 16,000 people had so far registered their opposition to the proposal through petitions, Twitter, and the PPG website and Facebook pages. ‘‘We have been told that this is the largest uprising ever seen on the peninsula and if they pass this, every one of those councillors will lose their seat at the next election. I will certainly run,’’ she said.

Healthy outlook Diabetes Australia-Victoria is celebrating its 60th year of providing community education, information and support for the prevention and management of diabetes. It is a service that Lorraine Phillips, of Bittern, has needed since being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes two months ago. ‘‘It was a shock when I got the diagnosis, particularly as I wasn’t feeling unwell. It just goes to show that it is important to be tested regularly.’’ Ms Phillips, also 60, is one of more than 250,000 Victorians living with the disease. For information, go to diabetesvic.org.au.

About 700 people attended a public meeting last week to hear speakers including PPG members Mary Karamitsios, Dr Mark Fancett, Dr Janet Stanley, local farmer Andrew Duncan and lawyer Kathryn Downs. Objections raised included fears of groundwater pollution, bushfire risk, threat to local flora and fauna and affect on local tourism. Opponents also say the proposal breaches Environment Protection Authority guidelines which state new landfills must deposit wastes at least two metres above the groundwater. The quarry lies 25 metres below groundwater level. The meeting voted to ‘‘strongly reject’’ the proposed landfill in Boundary Road, Dromana, and called on the shire and the EPA to refuse the relevant planning works approvals. Peninsula Waste Management development manager David Maltby last month told the Weekly he was confident the application met ‘‘all the necessary requirements’’ and expected the project to take months to go through the necessary protocols. ‘‘We expect the project to go to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, so it could be up to a year before anything happens. ‘‘Over the coming months we will be responding to issues people have raised and meeting with members of the community to discuss their concerns.’’

Louise embraces her curves

HVOOLUCHER

G4043515AK-dp23Nov

BY SAMANTHA ROBIN LIKE most girls her age, 11-year-old Louise Frith likes drawing, playing on her iPad and socialising with friends. But unlike her peers she has to wear a hard plastic torso brace for 23 hours a day. The Tyabb teenager has scoliosis, a medical condition that affects mostly young women. The condition causes abnormal curvature of the spine. In an attempt to halt this, Louise must wear a brace for the next two years, which limits what activities and sports she can participate in. Living with scoliosis is something mother Sarah Frith can relate to. ‘‘I had it as a teenager, so I know how isolating it can be,’’ she said. ‘‘For girls that age it can be quite hard and they feel self-conscious about wearing a brace.’’ So when her daughter was diagnosed, Mrs Frith went searching for something to help Louise. ‘‘After a huge amount of searching, I found Curvy Girls, a support group for young girls with scoliosis. ‘‘There are support groups in America and

Canada and one in Perth, but there is no group in Melbourne.’’ With the aim of supporting girls like herself, Louise has started up a Victorian chapter of Curvy Girls. ‘‘The idea of Curvy Girls is that it is a network, a point of contact and an online forum,’’ Mrs Frith said.

‘‘We are looking at having monthly meetings where girls can get together and share their experiences, challenges and practical advice on how to live with the condition.’’ To get involved, visit the website at curvygirlsscoliosis.com or email Louise at curvygirlsmelbourne@gmail.com.

Leash tightened on dog ban

SALE

NOW ON

DOG walking has been further restricted in the Mornington Peninsula National Park to protect wildlife including the endangered hooded plover population. Parks Victoria has announced that after extensive public consultation new restrictions would include permanent bans on dog walking in additional parts of the park. Dogs on leads, however, would be allowed in some areas from sunrise to 9am. ‘‘Under the new restrictions, around 14 kilometres of coastline will still be available for dog walking, with an additional seven kilometres of hooded plover breeding habitat being protected from the threats posed by dogs,’’ Parks Victoria district manager Libby Jude said. BirdLife Australia spokeswoman Grainne Maguire said the changes did not go far enough. “This is a devastating decision for the hooded plovers. These beaches are under such enormous human pressure and we need to address the severe threat that dog disturbance is posing to the birds on the Mornington Peninsula,” Dr Maguire said. “Only with a total ban in the breeding

months and appropriate enforcement can we be sure that the birds will be safe to breed. Our data shows that unless we reduce threats in this region, the birds are facing extinction in the next 25 years.”

She said that with so much beach left open to free-roaming dogs, it was essential for the state government to provide extra funds for full-time enforcement officers during the hooded plover breeding season to ensure dogs were kept on leads and away from breeding birds. Ms Jude said an independent analysis of submissions showed there was community support for both banning dogs in the park and continuing to allow dog walking. ‘‘Dog walking has been a long-standing activity within the park, and we feel that the new restrictions balance the community support for dog walking in the park with the need to conserve the hooded plover and other native fauna. ‘‘The new restrictions will protect key threatened species habitat areas from threats posed by dogs. The park’s hooded plover breeding population is one of the highest across Victoria but has a consistently low comparable breeding success to other parts of the state.’’ The changes start from September. Ms Jude said the restricted areas would be closely monitored and patrolled for compliance.

Pulling no punches for disadvantaged BY ALECIA PINNER THE homelessness experience of a Rye man is helping turn around the lives of disadvantaged young people on the Mornington Peninsula. As a 14 year old, Glenn Baptist’s family ‘‘fell apart’’. He was attacked twice in short-term care, abandoned by a foster mother and began living on the streets of Melbourne. ‘‘The short-term unit was hell with a door. ‘‘I didn’t know if I was going to get killed or not. They do support you with bed and food but it’s not enough, it’s not safe,’’ he told the Weekly. Mr Baptist was a ward of the state for eight years, had run-ins with the police and during the 2 1 ⁄ 2 years he was on the streets, would split money received from passers-by with his friends. ‘‘I had mates on the same predicament so we’d get $10 here or there and split it between us.’’ Mr Baptist, who has never touched drugs, saw six of his closest friends die from their addictions. Afraid to go back to the accommodation where he had been attacked, Mr Baptist would have secret meetings with his sister, to catch up

At 32, Mr Baptist, who has since met partner Annie and has four young daughters, is mentoring young people from the peninsula, who have found themselves in similar situations, through the Fight 4 Life youth centre in Rosebud West. After a chance meeting with club creator Nick Burbounis, Mr Baptist started boxing training at the club, which he credits with keeping him on the straight and narrow. ‘‘Boxing was the missing piece of the puzzle. It was my grandfather’s dream to train his first grandson, but he died when I was about four.’’ Without Fight 4 Life and Mr Burbounis, Mr Baptist believes he would have ended up back on the streets.

Farewell from the Weekly’s Mornington office crew. The Weekly’s heritage stretches back to 1984 when the Mornington Peninsula Independent was started. The venture expanded to include the Frankston Independent and the Hastings Independent, which were later joined by the Mornington & Southern Peninsula Mail. The papers were sold to the Fairfax Community Network in 2006, and rebranded as the Weekly in 2010. Metro Media Publishing took up a 50 per cent stake last year. I never thought I’d quote singer Celine Dion, but goodbye is indeed the saddest word.

On point: School vaccination programs help to keep diseases in check.

Vaccination plan on track BY LEE OPITZ SEVEN out of 10 students on the Mornington Peninsula are taking part in the national secondary school immunisation program, figures show. The free program includes inoculations for hepatitis B, human papillomavirus (HPV), and a booster for chicken pox (varicella) in year 7, and a diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (whooping cough) booster in year 10. Statistics for the nine local government areas in southern region — including Frankston and Mornington — shows that the region has the lowest participation rate in the state. The statistics were revealed in the Department of Health’s Secondary School Immunisation Participation Rates by State, Region & LGA 2010-2012 report. It showed that 75 per cent of students received the hepatitis B vaccine last year. But it will not be given this year as it was considered that most year 7 students would have had the vaccine as a baby. If a 12-13-year-old child was not vaccinated, they can get a free catch-up vaccine this year through their doctor or council immunisation service. However, this will be the last time the vaccine will be given free of charge. An ongoing HPV vaccine program for boys also began this year which will mean that boys and girls in year 7 will benefit from the Gardasil vaccine. Year 9 secondary school boys will be targeted in a catch-up program for two years only, ending next year. Mornington Peninsula Shire’s manager for child, youth and family Robin Adams said the shire visited every secondary school on the peninsula three or four times a year to provide immunisation to students in years 7, 9 and 10. ‘‘An education and information pack is provided to all parents but without parental consent, immunisations cannot take place. Schools are also encouraged to promote the immunisation information and sessions in their newsletters.’’ Mr Adams said there could be a number of reasons why vaccination numbers had fallen. To encourage greater participation in the program, the shire this year is trialling a program with two secondary schools offering a $100 voucher to the class with the most consent cards returned.

FEATURESTORY

A nice day at the office The difference between the best and worst jobs can simply be a matter of perspective, SAMANTHA ROBIN reports hen choosing a career path there are many aspects to consider. Job security, flexible working hours or a large pay packet are among many factors to be considered. But have you ever wondered how your job and working conditions stack up? American website CareersCast recently released its annual list of the best and worst jobs. Using data from government agencies it ranked 200 jobs from best to worst in terms of five key criteria: physical demands, work environment, income, stress and hiring outlook. Surprisingly, the top career was being an actuary — a finance expert specialising in risk analysis for insurance premiums. High ranking careers included biomedical engineer, software engineer, audiologist, financial planner and dental hygienist. Hearing Life Mornington audiometrist Lynette Elligate says being able to give people a better quality of life by helping them to hear again makes her job extremely rewarding. “The working environment is good, the working hours are generally 9-5pm and there isn’t much overtime,” she says. The job involves conducting hearing tests and rehabilitation as well as fitting hearing aids, mostly for the elderly. Mrs Elligate got into the profession by chance after working as a receptionist in the field and being encouraged to get the necessary qualifications to take on her own clients. “I wanted to be a nurse originally but realised I didn’t have the stomach for it. “This way I am still helping people and I can see the difference it makes in their lives. Most of the time I love what I do.” The difficulties of the job are dealing with people who can’t communicate well, which Mrs Elligate says can be stressful. But she finds the career rewarding. “Sometimes clients come in not being able to hear and by the time they leave they can hear again so that gives you a good feeling.” At the other end of the scale, careers rated as the worst jobs included meter reader, dairy farmer, oil rig worker and actor. Main Ridge Dairy proprietor and farmer Damien Noxon says he can understand why dairy farming was near the bottom half of the list but didn’t expect it to be among the six worst jobs. Early starts, long days and few holidays are all part and parcel of life on the land. But Mr Noxon says there are many positives. ‘‘Most people would see 5.30am starts as a negative but I see it as a positive, I love that part of the day. ‘‘I chose dairy farming as a way to sustain a living off the family property. It is a very satisfying pursuit working off the land and with the animals.’’ Mr Noxon milks goats and uses the milk for cheese which he sells from his property as well as retail and wholesale. He also offers tours of his farm, where people

Job satisfaction: Main Ridge dairy farmer Damien Noxon with his goats. can see all aspects of production from the paddock to the plate. While not your typical dairy farmer, he admits there are challenges facing the dairy farming industry in Australia. ‘‘Dairy farmers in Australia are struggling big time due to financial hardship. It is hard work: the typical dairy farmer would start at 5.30am and finish at 6pm, 365 days a year. ‘‘I probably wouldn’t recommend it as a career. The return would not be there for most people. It is a lifestyle thing and you really have to love it to make it work. ‘‘I wouldn’t say I have the worst job in the world. If you have the right mix of scenarios to make it work it can be a good job.’’ Mark McCrindle, from McCrindle Research, says when considering a career path it is important to move into a industry that is expanding. “One thing people need to think about is moving into growing industries rather than shrinking ones — retail and manufacturing industries are under strain at the moment,” he says. “We will have multi-careers in our lifetime and being able to adapt and up-skill is important.” Mr McCrindle says there is no one perfect career. “It’s about finding the best fit for each person, based on skills and temperament. “We can’t future-proof our careers by choosing an industry for life, but by keeping an eye on trends and keeping skills honed we can respond to what is needed.’’ He says career developments, however, aren’t exclusively linked to technology. ‘‘There is a massive need for traditional trades,

PROUDTRADITION NEWSPAPER reporter was the worst-rated job on the CareersCast list. The ability to access news instantly from smartphones and computers has eroded the tradition of opening a newspaper delivered to your doorstep and reading the latest headlines as you eat breakfast. For this newspaper reporter, it is sad to see that tradition gradually slip away, and even sadder that this article is appearing in the last edition of the Peninsula Weekly. We will miss our readers, letters to the editor and conversations with the community about their trials and triumphs. My colleagues and I have gone to great lengths to bring you the most relevant, interesting and thought-provoking stories in the community. We hope you have enjoyed our articles and appreciate your support. As I bid you farewell I can only urge you to continue to be curious about the world around you and engaged in the community. Thank you; it has been a pleasure. — Samantha Robin

and with population growth this will continue to be an area of high demand.” The top search results in Google are for jobs that pay well, involve travel, make a difference and help people — indicating that money is not the sole motivation for jobseekers. “The top job of actuary for a lot of people would be a nightmare. It might pay well and is in

a growth area but it is still a desk-bound job dealing with numbers. While actor is near the bottom of the list, many people in the industry love it beyond anything else.” Mary Toogood’s profession, service technician, wasn’t on the list but she says it’s something more people should consider. Removing and rotating sanitary bins may be perceived by some as among the worst jobs, but she says it’s under-rated. ‘‘I don’t have to pay for my travel expenses or phone and I can work the hours I want,’’ she says. Having previously owned a hairdressing salon, she says her current job is much easier and less stressful. ‘‘Try being a hairdresser and having to remove nits from someone’s hair and constantly dealing with people’s problems.’’ Mrs Toogood rotates the sanitary disposal bins for large and small companies on the Mornington Peninsula from Mt Eliza to Portsea. Her role includes about 30 jobs a day and she drives about 1000 kilometres a week. Mrs Toogood gets up early and beats traffic by starting at 5.30am but is finished by 1.30pm. Running up and down stairs keeps her fit. ‘‘It’s great exercise, it saves me having to pay for a gym membership.’’ She says people are especially nice to her because of her profession. ‘‘They think here comes the poor sanitary removal lady, I’d better be nice to her. I get to meet some great people.’’ When people ask what she does for a living she jokingly responds: ‘‘I do period furniture. ‘‘I don’t have any qualms, it’s a part of life.’’

First jazz festival is music to the ears BY HAYDN GODONY HE inaugural Mornington Winter Jazz Festival has been declared a huge success, jamming more than 30 musical events into the town over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. “The festival attracted locals and visitors from far and wide and provided a welcome boost to traders on what is a traditionally quiet long weekend,” festival committee member Lisa Walton said. Headline acts — Vince Jones, Andy Cowan, James Morrison, Frank Bennett and Flap! — performed to sold-out shows, and shows at Mornington library were also a full house. Along Main Street and at the Mornington Farmers’ Market, dancers, trumpeters and jazz ensembles entertained fans of all ages. “Our creative team included Melanie Sayers and Jeni Doherty of the Mornington Chamber of Commerce, Andrea Ebsworth from the shire and Simon Mills of Powerhouse Entertainment along with booker Marty Williams,’’ Ms Walton said. ‘‘Everyone worked long and hard to get this festival up and running. ‘‘From the first responses it looks set to

Living with MS? Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system, often striking young adults at a time when they’re leading busy lives. It’s estimated that more than 23,000 Australians are living with MS, with three out of every four people diagnosed being women. While a cure is yet to be found, there are a number of treatments available, including oral and injectable therapies that could help manage certain forms of the disease. If you’re living with MS, talk to your doctor about treatment options that might be right for you.

TRIPPING

Walking the gauntlet Crossing the road in Saigon provides an adrenaline rush that puts some adventure sports to shame, writes David Bonnici espite doing everything the guide books told me not to do, which meant I caught a shonky taxi and paid well over par, the drive into town from Tan Son Nat International Airport was a wonderful introduction to Ho Chi Minh City. The trip into Vietnam’s largest city, otherwise known as Saigon, had me sticking my head out the window in wide-eyed wonderment. Being part of the city’s notoriously congested arterials made this routine trip an adventure in itself. The traffic here somehow manages to flow despite the tide of motorbikes and scooters, which weave around each other and scatter from the path of unyielding larger vehicles. Bikes often negotiate the wider boulevards 10 abreast in each direc-

D

tion and criss-cross in similar breadth at uncontrolled intersections like an endless, meticulously choreographed motorcycle stunt show. Adding to the spectacle are scooters carrying whole families or loads that would have trouble fitting in the back of a Ford Falcon. Despite the mayhem, everything flows because everyone is aware of what is in front and around them. Crossing this madness is an excellent demonstration of their attentiveness. Pedestrian crossings are the safest places to cross. This might sound obvious until you realise nothing stops at pedestrian crossings unless they’re at controlled intersections — they are simply there to alert motorists to the fact that someone may attempt to enter the fray on foot. This means, as a pedestrian, all you

can do is hope everyone goes around you, though this doesn’t seem to apply to any vehicle with four wheels. First rule of crossing busy Saigon thoroughfares: don’t cross in front of anything bigger than a motorbike! Second rule of crossing busy Saigon thoroughfares: walk in a slow, but steady pace and for goodness’ sake don’t stop or make any rash moves! Simply look at the traffic and walk; don’t worry, they’re looking for you, anticipating your moves and aiming for the spot you’re about to vacate. My first attempt at playing human Frogger was across Ton Duc, a wide, busy boulevard beside Saigon River. It’s a rush to walk into moving traffic, to be enveloped by the roaring, beeping mechanical herd and emerge on the other side of the road unscathed.

Bike built for three: With cars out of the reach to most Vietnamese people, motorbikes and scooters are the main form of family transport. Picture: David Bonni

Heat hopes to retain UK star Matt Lineker BY BRAD McGRATH FRANKSTON Peninsula Heat captain Matt Chasemore has refused to concede star Englishman Matt Lineker will not play for the club next season. Lineker has relocated to Geelong and has indicated to the Heat that he is highly unlikely to return next season. But Chasemore says the opening batsman will not play for another Premier Cricket club and would still be chased by the Heat. ‘‘As far as I’m aware he won’t play for Geelong or another club,’’ he said. ‘‘He will have to drive from Geelong — he did a great job — and I’m going to push all the boundaries to try and get him to come back. ‘‘It is a big commitment for him to drive from Geelong for training on Tuesdays and Thursdays and he knows my philosophies about not training. He’s a great player and we’d love to have him back.’’ Chasemore has confirmed Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association star Justin Grant is firmly in his plans for next season. Grant signed with the Heat last month after

dominating for Mt Eliza last summer in Provincial division. ‘‘I’m excited because I’ve heard great things about him,’’ he said. ‘‘I’ve spoken to him and he seems like a really good guy — hopefully, the local comp will understand that he won’t come in and dominate. ‘‘It can take a few seasons to click but he did play a second XI game for Victoria, so he can obviously play cricket.’’ The Heat have also lured home-grown talent Mick McClean back to Jubilee Park after a sting with rival Premier Cricket club Camberwell. McClean scored 636 runs at 42 for the Magpies’ 2nd XI last season but failed to fire in the senior line-up with 63 runs in five innings last summer. ‘‘He went over to Camberwell because of work and now he’s come back to try and fill a batting spot,’’ Chasemore said. ‘‘He’s a Frankston boy and his dad’s our junior development co-ordinator and he’s coming back to have another really good go at it. ‘‘I’ve spoken to some other batsmen but nothing is confirmed yet.’’ The Heat are seeking sponsors for next season. For information, call the club on 9789 3084.

Coming back: Matt Lineker is weighing up whether to return to the Heat next season.

Trainer convicted on two charges

Toorak team meets Snowgum challenge A GROUP of Toorak College students will compete on the national stage after winning the Snowgum Hillary Challenge. The inter-school adventure has several categories, with the Toorak girls crowned the state champions after the completion of the event. “It is one of the most amazing events that young people can be involved in,’’ said Lee-Anne Marsh, who is the head of health and physical education and co-ordinator of wellbeing at Toorak College. ‘‘It takes them outside their comfort zone, and draws on their resilience and ability to work as a team.’’ The Victorian qualifier was held from May 24-26 at Camp Marysville, which is just out of Marysville bordered by the Marysville state rorest and rolling farmland. Eight teams from schools across Victoria competed in the event. ‘‘I heard about the event last year and it sounded like a lot of fun so I thought this year I would try out

Winning feeling: Matilda Davis, Abby Lethlean, Sinead Waterson, Ruby Phillips, Renee Cocks and Elly Jackson took out the Snowgum Hillary Challenge. for the team,’’ said Sinead Waterson, a year 10 student at Toorak College. ‘‘There were three trials to get through, and I was a little worried about exams, but I was thrilled to get into the team.’’ Day one comprised a series of five 60-minute challenges, designed to test a range of outdoor skills

Picture: Sam Stiglec

and teamwork. The teams received scores based on how well they performed the set tasks, as well as skills in communication, problem solving and team support. ‘‘Everyone had their strengths so we allocated positions in the challenges to suit people’s best strengths,’’ Waterson said. Day two comprised a rogaine, which is a crosscountry navigational challenge, in which students had to find as many checkpoints as possible in the allocated time of three hours. Scoring was based on the total number of checkpoints they reached. ‘‘At the end of day one, Toorak College was fifth out of eight schools so they knew they had to really push themselves in the rogaine the following day,’’ Marsh said. ‘‘To their credit, the girls put in an amazing effort and won the rogaine.’’ Toorak College will now compete in a three-day national event against schools from South Australia and New South Wales.

MORNINGTON trainer Mark Riley has been found guilty by the Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board of two charges relating to an incident at Mornington racecourse on May 13. The charges relate to an incident involving Riley and track rider Jack Dunne. Riley was found guilty of conduct prejudicial to the image, interests, or welfare of racing while the second charge related to misconduct, improper conduct or unseemly behaviour. Riley entered a guilty plea on both charges and was subsequently convicted and suspended for two months on each charge. The penalties are to be served concurrently and suspended for 12 months on the condition that Riley does not commit a further breach of these rules in the next 12 months.

Two peninsula table tennis teams claim Country Week shield success EIGHTEEN players and six teams represented the Mornington Peninsula Table Tennis Association in the annual Country Week competition held at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre over the Queen’s Birthday weekend. The tournament brings together the top players from regional Victoria in team and individual events, all eager to achieve success for the Victorian town or area that they represent. All grades are represented, with the top grades showcasing some of the best talent in the state.

Following one of the best performances by the Mornington club in its 50-year history, two shields will now hang in the clubrooms. Chris Robinson, Luke Bronsema and Sean O’Meara won the B1 division title and Lucas Seguel, Jay Debernardi and Richmond Reyes achieved success in the E2 division. The incredibly strong A grade combination of Myles Collins, Jarryd Cathcart and Sam Palmer also came heartbreakingly close to taking the title in the top division but had to settle for second

place after losing on a countback to Ballarat. In a clear indication of the current strength of table tennis on the Mornington Peninsula, the individual singles championship was fought out by two of Mornington’s best and it was Collins who ultimately secured the title when he defeated 18-year-old Bronsema in the final. Another club champion, Jarryd Cathcart, was a losing semifinalist in the same event. With Country Week commitments stretching into Monday, the Mornington Peninsula Table

Tennis Association’s autumn pennant competition was temporarily suspended to enable the club to conduct its annual club championships. Perhaps not surprisingly, Collins will have his name etched on the club’s honour board for the first time after he defeated the ageless Mark Flavel in the A grade final. Six-time club singles champion Cathcart teamed with O’Meara to take out the doubles title. Max Coulthard overcame a chronic shoulder injury to win the A2 division singles.
