Shire rates to jump 5.9% Figures from the proposed budget also revealed people aged 60 or more make up 28 per cent of the shire’s population. This is expected to rise to 31 per cent by 2031, equating to one out of every three people living on the peninsula. The council has allocated $7 million for its home and community care program to provide services for aged and disability care. Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers and Residents Association president Alan Nelsen said the actual rate rise for residents would be more than the 5.9 per cent outlined by the council. ‘‘When you combine the municipal charge with the rates we see it as being 7.6 per cent extra,’’ Dr Nelsen said. ‘‘Raising the fees separately is a cunning way of hiding the actual amount people are paying. The council is putting a spin on what the actual rate increase is. ‘‘With the municipal charge set at a flat rate, people in the lower socio-economic groups are paying the same as people in areas like Sorrento, where property values are much higher. So people in lower-cost housing are actually paying more for their rates.’’

BY SAMANTHA ROBIN MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire rates are set to rise 5.9 per cent under the council’s draft budget now on exhibition for public comment. In what mayor Lynn Bowden described as a ‘‘tight budget’’, the shire will gain $130 million in rates and charges and deliver a small surplus of $32,000 in the 2013-14 financial year. The municipal charge will rise $20 to $180 and the opt-in green waste service of $130 a bin will generate an additional $2 million for shire coffers. Cr Bowden said the shire, which set last year’s rates rise at 4.45 per cent, would continue to live within its means in the current tight economic circumstances. The council will spend $102 million delivering services to the community, up $8 million on last year’s budget. While the shire will borrow $11 million to pay for its unfunded superannuation liability, total borrowing will fall $5 million on the previous budget. The council’s total borrowings as at June 30, 2014, would be $38 million if the draft passes unaltered.

Dr Nelsen said the rates rise didn’t reflect the cost of living. ‘‘I think it is totally unreasonable when the cost of living has gone up 10-15 per cent over the past three years but rates get snuck up every year. Even train fares only go up every two or three years.’’ The shire hopes to generate extra cash by selling council-owned properties, including the former Mt Martha quarry site. Dr Nelsen said the council had not stipulated which parcels of land it would sell off to pay for the proposed Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre. ‘‘They should sell it now to reduce the debt rather than waiting to sell the land off,’’ he said. A change on last year’s budget will be an additional $467,000 in rental income generated from the Rosebud shopping centre in Wannaeue Place, which the council snapped up late last year. High-rollers will also be forced to cough up extra funds, with bathing box rental fees to rise from $365 to $385. Written submissions on the draft must be received by 5pm on June 11. The final budget is due to be adopted on July 15.

Re: Arthurs Seat quarry landfill plan What a joke. Anyone with half a brain would know this is a completely idiotic proposal. Obviously having a landfill at this site will increase the bushfire risk. If this were to happen what would the effect be on native flora and fauna and surrounding properties? Red Hill Consolidated School is only about 6.5 kilometres from the site and there is at least one property that is within the 500-metre buffer distance from the site, on Eatons Cutting. A creek bed runs from the OT Dam right along the western edge of the quarry and then eventually into Sheepwash Creek. There is no possible way that they could prevent leaching or run-off into the groundwater and into this creek and then into the bay. Obviously, this would also have a detrimental effect on the flora and fauna surrounding this site. Peregrine falcons use the quarry’s cliff faces for nesting and there are countless species of native animals in the area, and rare flora.

May 22, 2013

This area is very popular for bush walking. It is surrounded by pristine green wedge and state park and this proposal will obviously have an extremely negative impact on the amenity of the area. If you look at the R E Ross Trust website, they pride themselves on the work they do to protect the environment and state the wishes of Roy Ross on the protection of native flora and fauna. This proposal is completely contradictory to this. Disgusted (via web)

Yeah, I’m sure me and my family won’t be negatively impacted when the liner leaks and poisons our drinking water; when the garbage goes up in flames and burns our house to the ground; when the quarry is blasted to smooth out the walls; when the surplus feral rats invade our pantry; when the birds, frogs, lizards and antechinuses in the bush are all eaten by cats and foxes; when we breathe in the toxic fumes carried on the westerly wind less than a kilometre to our home. What a load of execrable slop. Mononoke (via web)

Autumn farewell Mornington Peninsula residents shivered through a cold front that brought heavy storms across much of the peninsula last week. Last Monday week Steve Robin snapped this picture of hail covering the ground and cars in Balnarring, where primary school pupils were keen to play in the hail, which fell just as they were leaving school. Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Peter Newham said it was not unusual for colder weather to strike at this time of the year. He said warmer-than-average temperatures were expected this winter.

Father, son fined over cannabis plants BY SAMANTHA ROBIN A FATHER and son have been fined for cultivating and possessing cannabis after police found plants and drug growing paraphernalia at their Rye properties. Dominic Clarke and his son Tristan Clarke appeared before the Dromana Magistrates Court on May 9. Leading Senior Constable Steve Drew said the men were charged after he conducted a search warrant on two Rye properties owned by Clarke snr. One property was found to have cannabis plants growing in the backyard behind a shade screen that was not visible to neighbours. The other property, which was vacant, had a hydroponic set up in the back room. Dominic Clarke pleaded guilty to cultivation, possession and use of cannabis and was fined $2500 and ordered to pay court costs. Tristan Clarke, who also pleaded guilty, was convicted of possession and cultivation of cannabis and pos-

session of cocaine. He was placed on a 12 month good behaviour bond, fined $800 and ordered to pay court costs.

Magistrate Franz Holzer said no conviction would be recorded against Clarke jnr.

HOMICIDE squad detectives are appealing for assistance following the stabbing death of a man in Rye on Friday. Police were called to a property in Parson Street after the body of 72-year-old Barry Gray was discovered about 9.40am. They said last week they were treating the death as suspicious. Investigators announced on Monday they had found a broken

window at the property. They also confirmed a car belonging to Mr Gray was missing. Detectives are searching for a white 2006 VW Caddy van, registration number XEQ 726. Anyone with information about the car — or who had dealings with Mr Gray in the days leading up to his death — is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go to crimestoppers.com.au.

FRANKSTON and Mornington Peninsula residents are benefiting from a Peninsula Health initiative aimed at reducing alcohol-related harm in older people. Under the Australian-first program designed to address the issue, 200 clients aged 60-96 have on average halved their alcohol consumption within three months. Last week, Peninsula Health’s Older Wiser Lifestyles (OWL) team was named a finalist in the HESTA primary health care awards category for team excellence for its efforts in driving home the message that excessive alcohol posed particular risks for these age groups. Simon Ruth, who heads the OWL team, said up to 30 per cent of older Australians were at risk of experiencing health problems related to alcohol. ‘‘Alcohol can lead to cancer, diabetes and heart disease and sleeping problems,’’ Mr Ruth said. The body processed alcohol less effectively as people aged — ‘‘if you’re drinking the same at 70,

as you were at 40, you’re probably doing yourself harm’’. He warned that prescription drugs, often taken by older residents, could affect the impact of alcohol on the body. ‘‘A person over 60 on average takes about four different medications and often GPs don’t have time to educate people on what happens if you take those drugs with alcohol.’’ Mr Ruth said some people drank because they always had or were recently retired. Others turned to alcohol as a coping mechanism after a partner died or they felt isolated and bored. And older people on the Mornington Peninsula often found accessing transport difficult due to a lack of mobility or money, which commonly led to geographic isolation. ‘‘We work with them on other ways to put meaning back in their lives.’’ Most of the clients involved in the program, which has been running for three years and has early intervention and treatment arms, were selfreferred.

APPROVAL for the construction of a bus interchange in Barkly Street near the Main Street roundabout has quietly been approved by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. The project includes extended bus bays on either side of the road, shelters, bicycle parking facilities and streetscapes. A public toilet will also be built on the corner of Barkly Street and the Eastern Ring Road. The permanent closure of Blamey Place to through traffic is required to make way for the larger bays. First proposed in 2011, the project stalled after adjoining traders raised concerns including road safety issues, increased vandalism and exhaust fumes entering their premises. Cars trying to pass parked buses in either direction was also a major concern. Following objections, the council considered other locations but decided the Barkly Street site was the most appropriate for the 781, 785 and 788 bus routes to Frankston and was finally approved at a December 19 council meeting, just before councillors went on their Christmas break. It will be completely funded by a $450,000

Bus stop: Work starts this week on the new Barkly Street bus interchange. grant from Public Transport Victoria. Objectors now say they are resigned to the project going ahead, but are concerned about the effect construction will have on customers.

Briars Ward councillor Bev Colomb said all aspects had been taken into consideration when planning the interchange. ‘‘With putting in any infrastructure it is always a compromise but I believe this is the best option,’’ she said. ‘‘We have moved the shelter further down Barkly Street to lessen the impact on retailers. This is a long-term solution that will meet the public transport needs for many years to come.’’ Shire manager infrastructure strategy Alison Leighton said while there would be sufficient space for two buses, they were timetabled not to coincide and it would be rare to see two buses stop in the same direction. Ms Leighton said the council would monitor how the changed traffic flow in Blamey Place affected surrounding infrastructure. Construction begins this week and is expected to be finished within a few months. Temporary bus stops will be in place in the interim. The 784 and 785 will be rerouted via Main, Ross and Gordon streets back to Barkly Street and temporarily use the stop in Main Street just north of Barkly Street. All three routes will use the new bus interchange and the stops in Main Street will be used for car parking.

A ROSEBUD West man is facing charges for allegedly exceeding the catch limit for squid and selling it to a Mornington Peninsula retail outlet. The man, 37, was arrested in Dromana following a four-month investigation in which fisheries officers allegedly saw him exceeding the daily catch limit for squid several times near Sorrento. The officers also allege they saw him concealing the squid in his jacket and selling a total of 7.6 kilograms of squid and 5.8 kilos of flathead, some under the legal size, to the outlet. The man will be charged on summons with offences including exceeding the daily bag limit, taking and possessing undersize fish, hindering or obstructing an authorised officer and selling his catch to a retail outlet without a commercial licence. After the man’s arrest, his vessel, fish, fishing equipment and a sum of cash were seized. A search of his home revealed a further 26.4 kilograms of frozen squid in a chest freezer. The operator of the retail outlet is also facing

charges over buying the squid and fish. Recreational anglers caught selling their fish face fines of up to $14,000 and/or six months jail, forfeiture of equipment, boats and vehicles used in the offence and losing fishing privileges for a substantial time. The daily catch limit for squid in Victoria is 10 per person. It is also an offence to attempt to hinder fisheries officers by concealing fish. Commercial premises caught buying fish taken by a recreational angler can face fines of up to $28,000 and/or 12 months in jail as well as substantial penalties under food safety legislation. Fisheries Victoria acting director of education and enforcement Ian Parks said regulations governing the taking of squid were to safeguard the fishery, and those who ignored the law were jeopardising its sustainability. Anyone who sees or suspects illegal fishing can call the 24-hour fisheries offence reporting line 13 34 74.

Survey delivers joy to hospital BY SAMANTHA ROBIN

Expect to pay around half the price!

Baby boon: Midwives Kay Peeke, Margaret Joyce, Jan Collins, Georgie Shearer and Ingrid Goss, cuddling Griffin, Audrey, Evie and Fionn, are delighted that The Bays has been named Australia’s best maternity hospital. Picture: Samantha Robin ‘‘We have seen people come back for their third and fourth babies and have even delivered the babies of babies.’’ Ms Joyce said being a midwife was very rewarding. ‘‘It is a privilege to be part of such an important time in a couple’s life. We hope to make that time as special as it can be.

‘‘I still love coming to work every day, and that’s what makes the difference.’’ The hospital, which delivers about 500 babies a year, has also won praise for its staunch support of baby-friendly initiatives aimed at promoting and supporting breastfeeding.

HAPPY mums have voted The Bays Hospital in Mornington the nation’s best hospital to have a baby. The Medibank Maternity Experience Index collated the experiences of more than 1500 women who gave birth in private hospitals across Australia, focusing on core areas such as hospital performance, environment, staff and support throughout the pregnancy. Unit manager Margaret Joyce said maternity staff were chuffed to receive the accolade. ‘‘It was totally surprising considering we are a small hospital, but knowing the staff I can understand why,’’ she said. ‘‘It is lovely to think people have appreciated their time here. We try and make it the best for them so it is good to see they have been happy. When people leave and they thank us for their experience, that is what makes it all worthwhile.’’ Ms Joyce said some of the midwives had been working at the hospital, formerly Mornington Bush Hospital, since the late 1970s. ‘‘We have seen some changes in that time and delivered a few thousand babies but we still enjoy it as much as ever.

Bus boost for students BY SAMANTHA ROBIN

Naval officer steers a new course PETTY Officer Steve Lambert swapped the high seas for the long road north when he embarked on The Long Ride last Saturday to raise awareness and funds for Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia. PO Lambert of HMAS Cerberus was joined on the 3400-kilometre trek from Melbourne to Cairns by his wife Wendy Derrix and son Nathan, 11. ‘‘I’m really looking forward to it. We love riding motorcycles, but this is the furthest we’ve ridden. I wanted to do it because my grandfather passed away from prostate cancer,’’ he said before the

adventure. Since it began five years ago, riders from all over Australia have taken part in the event. Petty Officer Lambert will ride to Cairns and back over two weeks. Ms Derrix and Nathan will also ride up to Cairns, and part of the return trip to Brisbane, where they will catch a plane for the rest of the journey.

TERTIARY students on the Mornington Peninsula have a new way of getting to class. A PenBus service has been set up by the Mornington Peninsula Shire in conjunction with Ventura Bus Lines. Funded by a $1.2 million federal government grant, the service will be accessible to students, jobseekers, apprentices and trainees living on the peninsula and in Frankston. Research into alternative transport options on the peninsula were looked into following an article in the Weekly about the increasing need for better public transport. Further investigation by the shire revealed that only 35 per cent of peninsula students who completed year 12 engaged in further study, compared to a state average of 49 per cent. The lower local rate came despite more than 55 per cent of students from the shire being offered uni-

Mrs Kontos said students were also taking advantage of the free Wi-Fi on the buses to do their homework. The service is funded until June, 2015 but the shire will be advocating to have the route made permanent. Mayor Lynn Bowden said the two dedicated PenBus services would make travelling to tertiary education, training and employment opportunities easier and give passengers working or studying outside the region a convenient connection to Hastings and Frankston railway stations. “This gives travellers immediate access to the Cranbourne, Pakenham, Frankston and Stony Point lines, as well as a number of other metropolitan bus services.’’ Frankston and peninsula residents can apply for free access to PenBus services if they are a fulltime or part-time tertiary student, formally enrolled in study, a registered apprentice or trainee, or a jobseeker.

The new bus service will follow two routes, one from Hastings to Chisholm Institute in Rosebud, via Mornington, and another from Rosebud to Monash University in Clayton, via Frankston. Shire transport connections project officer Rita Kontos hopes the new bus service will encourage more students to take on tertiary studies or other training opportunities. ‘‘We hope that with the improved transport options more students will take up university placements and that the retention rate will be higher,’’ she said. ‘‘The students are delighted with the comfort of coaches and their accessibility, which means many now don’t have to swap modes of transport on their route. Some students are halving their travel time compared to public transport options.’’

Life-like dinosaurs delight the Downs BY ALECIA PINNER

Cracking up: Hayden tries out a dinosaur egg for size.

FORGET Jurassic Park. The surprise arrival of huge, growling dinosaurs in Carrum Downs was a traffic-slowing spectacle as passers-by just had to stop to take a look. Showtime Attractions staff unloaded the first of seven containers of dinosaurs and prehistoric props last Tuesday for a production they have kept under wraps for 18 months. The computerised cast includes the terrifying tyrannosaurus rex and three horned triceratops. They were assembled in China for the Dinosaur Adventures production, which was developed at the Showtime Attractions head office in Frankston-Dandenong Road. Many children were thrilled to touch the realistic dinosaurs, running through a giant dinosaur mouth and climbing inside dinosaur eggs. Others appeared a little apprehensive about the towering animatrons. Showtime owner and director Keith Brown said a lot of thought was put into how to bring the dinosaurs to ‘life’.

What big teeth you have: Kody gives a dinosaur a dental check. “The movement sensors go off when the children walk up to them,” he said. The excited mastermind sourced parts from Germany and America and said a prehistoricstyle forest setting had also been created to show how the creatures lived. The travelling preview show will begin at East-

Portrait contest puts young talent in frame BY SAMANTHA ROBIN BUDDING artists are putting their hats in the ring for the inaugural Friends of Mornington Peninsula Regional Art Gallery portrait prize. The winners, to be announced at an awards ceremony at the gallery next month, will be given a private viewing of the much-awaited Archibald Prize exhibition. Last week, Vincent Fantauzzo was named the 2013 Archibald People’s Choice recipient for his portrait Love Face of his girlfriend Asher Keddie. Keddie is one of Australia’s most popular actors, best known for her award-winning portrayal of Nina Proudman in the television series Offspring. ‘‘I had so many ideas about how to paint it that I didn’t quite know which way to go,’’ he said. ‘‘In the end I decided it needed to be honest and simple. A face can display so much emotion and Asher’s eyes tell you so much of the story.’’ It is Fantauzzo’s fifth time as an Archibald Prize finalist. He won the 2011 Packing Room Prize with a painting of Matt Moran and the

People’s Choice Award in 2008 and 2009 for paintings of actors Heath Ledger and Brandon Walters. The portrait art competition for students was open to all school children on the Mornington Peninsula in years prep-12, with more than 900 artists aged five to 18 submitting pieces. Mornington Peninsula Regional Art Gallery director Jane Alexander said the portraiture prize was designed to involve the younger generation in the gallery. ‘‘It has been amazing what they are doing — there’s a great selection of works, including paintings, photography and mixed media. There are a lot of self portraits and portraits of public figures. ‘‘I would say there are definitely some future Archibald Prize entrants. Even the little preps have come up with some fabulous pieces, so it will be interesting to see where they take art in the future. If children have an appreciation for art early on, it stays with them for life.’’ A total of $2800 will be awarded in prizes to the winners. The entrants will be whittled down

FEATURESTORY

Snooker champs right on cue Australia has had few world champions at billiards or snooker. One, Walter Lindrum, was a 1930s poster boy alongside Bradman and Phar Lap. Two others met while playing local snooker in Melbourne’s east. DAVID SCHOUT finds where cue sport fits into Melbourne’s sports scene. obby Foldvari knows what it’s like to be Australia’s cue sport king. The 1986 world billiards champion toured the world in the ’80s and ’90s, playing hundreds of international snooker and billiards tournaments. During one off-season in the mid-90s, Foldvari returned home to Melbourne after a long season overseas. It was at this time that Neil Robertson, who would later become a world-beater, was a pimply teen trying to make his mark on the eastern suburbs snooker scene. Some shrewd recruiting by a local club led the two Melburnians together and started a relationship that, by the time they went to either ends of the earth, signalled a passing of the baton as Australia’s hope to take on the world. ‘‘There was a snooker room in Knox and at this time, in between playing in England, they asked me to play pennant for them in a six-man team,’’ Foldvari explains. ‘‘Neil was only a kid and was the No. 6. I didn’t have any idea what he’d be like. That was my first meeting with him.’’ As Robertson moved up the ranks, the two got to know each other and toured the Australian snooker circuit together. ‘‘He used to practise all the time back then. He loved the game. You could see he was talented at a young age because he’d pot a lot of balls. He just had to refine his skill. ‘‘We used to talk a lot, especially in the long train trips to tournaments. One day his dad ran out of petrol on a trip home from Sydney, so we had even more time to talk,’’ Foldvari says with a laugh. Then, in 2000, the two met in the Oceania snooker championship final in New Zealand. Foldvari’s international career was winding down while Robertson’s career was just kickstarting. It signalled a changing of the guard in Australian snooker. ‘‘I was playing really well and had won the semis 8-1. ‘‘In the final I was putting him on the top cushion [the other end of the table] but he just kept potting the long ball. I didn’t think he could keep doing it but he did, and he has ever since. He’s well known for being probably the best long potter in the world.’’ Robertson, who grew up in Ringwood, went on to win the 2010 world snooker champion and break a 30-year British stranglehold on the tournament. It was an Aussie beating the Poms at their own game, in their backyard. Foldvari puts it into context. ‘‘The BBC televises the world championships for 10 hours a

Table topper: Robby Foldvari was once ranked in the world’s top 50 in billiards and snooker. day, two weeks straight in much the same fashion as Channel Seven televise the Australian Open tennis.’’ The win put Robertson on Australia’s congested sports pages and gave the sport the air time it craved. While cue sports like snooker, billiards and pool at present don’t seem to grab the attention of the average punter in Australia, it wasn’t always like this. The games have experienced peaks of popularity and troughs of seeming obscurity. Comparisons with basketball and baseball, which have also had ebb and flow popularity in Australia, are not too far off the mark. It seems, however, that every peak comes on the back of Australian success overseas. Foldvari agrees, and, while sitting at the bar of a quiet Moorabbin pool room, explains the heyday of billiards, starting in the 1930s with the seemingly unbeatable Australian, Walter Lindrum. ‘‘It’s a long story but to cut it short, when Bradman came along, they called Bradman the Lindrum of cricket — that’s how big Lindrum was,’’ he says. ‘‘In the ‘30s, there were three main icons — Phar Lap, Bradman and Lindrum. The public followed that story because it was an amazing story. He cut his finger off as a kid and had to change to left hand and became the world’s best.’’ He goes on to explain how snooker then started to ‘‘get big’’ in the 1970s in Australia primarily because of British television show Pot Black and another hero, Eddie Charlton. The BBC show featured snooker tournaments that, despite carrying no official ranking points,

Robby’s 5 basic tips 1. Keep your head still. 2. Separate each finger and place on the table. Bring your thumb against your index finger and use that as the channel for the cue to slide. 3. To work out angles, imagine a line to the pocket from where the object ball is. 4. Smooth cue action. Slow back swing and accelerate through — just like golf. 5. Grip the cue like a hammer. Take pressure off when swinging back and tighten when striking the ball.

can be attributed for popularising the modern game. ‘‘For Australia, Eddie Charlton was playing and he won it a few times. That was good TV and really good for the game.’’ Charlton became a national hero for beating the British at their own game, much like Robertson 30 years on. Then, in 1986, Foldvari won the world billiards championship and finished runner-up to Pat Cash to become the ‘Herald Caltex Sportsman of the Year’, so popular was the sport. The emergence of Robertson, Foldvari says, gives Aussies ‘‘someone to follow’’. While it may be too early to assess the impact of Robertson’s win, at the very least it brought the game into living rooms across the country. More importantly, it provided the impetus for world snooker executives to include the Australian championships — the Australian Goldfields Open — as one of 10 international ‘ranking’ events as part of the 2011 season. It was the first time international players had played for official

ranking points Down Under since 1975 and the Bendigo tournament is now part of the world snooker calendar. Eastern Districts Pool League president Claude Welson says that at a local level, while participation has dropped slightly in recent years, demand for ‘eight-ball’ — the traditional pub game in Australia — is still high. ‘‘I don’t know why numbers have gone down,’’ he says. ‘‘There’s been a few pool halls close. I guess it [popularity] goes in phases. ‘‘Our numbers are still healthy and we have five divisions that play on a Tuesday night. We’re still ambitious and looking to expand, especially our juniors.’’ Welson says while the sport may have previously been masculine, the EDPL has about 10 per cent female participation. And they play against the guys. ‘‘We’ve got a good number of women playing, which is great. They play against the men because it’s such an even sport that just requires hand-eye co-ordination.’’ Foldvari still fronts up for the RACV Club in Melbourne and says the local snooker competition is very strong. He operates his own business, World Cuesport Billiard Academy, in Melbourne and offers coaching and trick shot exhibitions. Foldvari says the various cue sport disciplines have been detrimental. ‘‘If it was one game, it’d be as big as golf. There’s too many to choose from.’’ The Australian Goldfields Open — with Robertson as a headline act — begins in Bendigo on July 8.

Get in fast to offer a home to slow racers BY LEE OPITZ THEY are gentle, but large. They don’t jump on people, spend most of their time lounging about, are extremely clean and only need a short walk each day. And they rarely bark. Based on this description, greyhounds would be perfect residents at the Mornington Retirement Village. Hoping to convince some of the residents to adopt a pet, members of Greyhound Safety Net (GSN) visited last week to talk about the organisation’s Retirees for Retirees program. Adoption co-ordinator Julie Mathieson said that, as the name suggested, the group aimed to provide a safety net for greyhounds that have been abandoned or rejected after finishing their racing career. ‘‘Greyhounds race only for two years — until they are about four years old — and have a life expectancy of 12 years or more,’’ she said. ‘‘Most of them have nowhere to go after racing. Some aren’t fast enough and are up for rehoming as young as 12 months. Our mission is

to find homes for as many of these beautiful creatures as we can.’’ GSN has found homes for almost 500 greyhounds that would have otherwise not been saved. Christina and Martyn Pickersgill have adopted two greyhounds and started Retirees for Retirees to encourage others to do the same. ‘‘After they finish their racing career they are considered a liability, unless kept for breeding for a few years,’’ Mrs Pickersgill said. ‘‘Some don’t even make it to the track and are expendable as they can’t bring in any money. These dogs have never lived a normal life. ‘‘Martyn and I are really passionate about educating people about just how beautiful, in both nature and looks, these dogs are.’’ To find out more about the program, call Ms Mathieson on 0431 747 130. Perfect companions: Sarah Lawson of Greyhound Safety Net shows Mornington Retirement Village resident Pat Hyde what great pets greyhounds can make. Picture: Gary Sissons

INBRIEF Arrest in school burglary Hastings police have charged a 23-year-old Rosebud West woman in relation to a burglary at Hastings Primary School on April 22. The woman has been bailed to appear in Dromana Magistrates Court on August 8. Detectives are also seeking to interview a 34-year-old man about the break-in.

Thieves take computers Strumming along: Alan Blyth, Karen Doyle, Ron Willis and Jack Kirby with their ukuleles.

Move over, guitar man The orchestra is an offshoot of Verandah Music, whose members play a variety of instruments, including banjos. ‘‘We wanted to play music from the earlier days, often played on verandahs, and that is how we came up with the name Verandah Music’’, Kirby said. Verandah Ukulele Orchestra practises in room 8 at the Old Shire Offices, corner of Verdon Street and Nepean Highway, Dromana, from 1-3pm every second and fourth Saturday of the month. Beginners welcome. Inquiries to Jack Kirby on 5983 5922. For information, visit verandahmusic.net.

BY DANIELLE McFARLAND AN old-fashioned instrument is making a comeback on the Mornington Peninsula. Verandah Music band members Jack Kirby and Ron Willis have started the Verandah Ukulele Orchestra and say there’s already plenty of interest. ‘‘You don’t hear much of the ukulele down this area and I thought it would be a good idea to put a group together and share the music,’’ Kirby said. ‘‘I already have people from everywhere contacting me to join and we should have about 20 members.’’

Computers have been stolen from Dromana College for the second time in a month. On Friday night thieves smashed a computer room window and stole four Apple Mac computer monitors. It follows a similar incident on April 21 when a window was forced open and 30 laptop computers were taken. Police believe the thefts are linked. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Auction to help hospital Real estate agent Barry Plant Rosebud will tomorrow auction goods donated by local businesses as a fund-raiser for Rosebud Hospital. Items to be auctioned from 6pm at 28A McCombe Street, Rosebud, include knitted goods, household items, local vouchers and a signed St Kilda Football Club cap. Light refreshments provided. Details: Sally Richards, 5986 8880.

Interfaith festival The Mornington Peninsula Interfaith Festival

theme on Sunday, June 9 will be ‘a celebration of community’. The event will be held from 12.30-5.30pm at the Mornington Community Theatre, corner of Nepean Highway and Wilsons Road. The annual festival celebrates the diversity of cultures and faiths through music, dance, art, film, workshops and food. Particular recognition will be given to Probus clubs on the peninsula. Activities will include whale dreaming song-telling, boomerang painting and throwing, African drumming and dancing, choir singing, arts drawing and laughter yoga. For more information about the free event go to interfaithfestival.org.au or call Judy O’Donnell on 0400 088 410.

Maldives film screening Mornington Peninsula Shire will present a special screening of The Island President to mark World Environment Day from 6-9.30pm on Wednesday, June 5 at the Southern Peninsula Arts Centre, Eastbourne Road, Rosebud. The film tells the story of President Mohamed Nasheed of the Maldives, who faces a great challenge: a rise of 0.9 metres in sea level would submerge the 1200 islands of the Maldives. After the film, Greg Hunt of the South East Councils for Climate Change Action and Luke Taylor of the Sustainable Living Foundation will discuss climate change in the local context. Supper will be served before the free screening. To book, go to islandpresidentmps .eventbrite.com.au or call 5950 1685.

I want the people who come along to say ‘wow, that was great’. Ever since I was young I wanted to be the best at whatever I did. My mum and dad worked three jobs to give me the best possible life. So I’m working hard for my kids. I didn’t win [MasterChef]. I came fourth, but I haven’t given up — we’ll see what’s to come.�

Injuries cast doubt on line-up

Focus on youth for interleague clash

BY BRAD McGRATH

PENINSULA League coach Stephen Ryan says a youthful team will confront the Ovens and Murray Football League at Visy Park on Saturday. The Peninsula League has several injury concerns, with Frankston YCW ruckman Ash Eames and Karingal star Dave Goodall ruled out. Mornington gun Warwick Miller is not available for the clash, the winning team of which will play off for the No. 1 ranking in country Victoria next year. ‘‘We’ve had a few injuries and a few blokes pull out, which is not good,’’ Ryan said. ‘‘We’ll keep soldiering on and pick the best team that we can. ‘‘Young Dylan Jones will play — we’ll probably have a pretty young team.’’ The Peninsula League will have significant star power with Langwarrin guns Shane McDonald and Beau Muston and Frankston YCW pair Byron and Anthony Barry committing to the cause. The MPNFL recorded a thrilling twopoint win over the O and M two seasons ago when it fielded a team boasting players from the Peninsula, Casey Cardinia and Nepean Leagues. But after pressure from the Victorian Country Football League, each league under the newly named PCN Sports Alliance will field its own interleague team, meaning not much can be read into the victory. Ryan said he is wary of the traditionally strong O and M outfit which is likely to boast several ex-AFL players. ‘‘I wasn’t part of the competition last time but I have played against the O and M before,’’ he said. ‘‘I’ve seen a rough list that they’ve put together and they will be strong.’’ McDonald and Pines star Jimmy Messina are contenders to captain the Peninsula League. The Peninsula League under-18 team also plays the O and M from noon at Visy Park on Saturday. Peninsula League clashes with the Ovens and Murray Football League at Visy Park, Carlton, from 2.10pm on Saturday.

THE Nepean League has been forced into rethinking its line-up to tackle the Heathcote and District Football League after a raft of injuries over the weekend. Nepean League coach Gavin Artico said Sorrento stars Jonathon Croad, James Hallahan, Ryan Jeffery and Daniel Grant had all withdrawn from the team due to play Heathcote at QE2 oval, Bendigo, on Saturday. Frankston Bombers coach Duncan Proud and Dromana star Christian Ongarello have also pulled out of the interleague clash. ‘‘The team is coming along well even though we copped a few blokes over the weekend that haven’t pulled up to play,’’ Artico said. ‘‘Those blokes were pretty prominent in our plans for the game so it’s going to be a bit of a juggling act. ‘‘It is what it is and we’ll just get one with it.’’ The Nepean League will have several experienced interleague campaigners in the line-up with Rikki Johnston (Dromana), Darren Booth, Rhett Sutton (Rye) and Leigh Poholke (Sorrento) all indicating they are available to play. The Peninsula, Nepean and Casey Cardinia leagues will field separate interleague teams this year. The Peninsula League has been ranked the highest out of the leagues under the PCN Sports Alliance banner and will clash with the Ovens and Murray for the right to play off for the No. 1 ranking in country Victoria next year. Last year, the MPNFL played off for the top ranking against the Goulburn Valley Football League with players from all three leagues while second-string teams from the Casey Cardinia and Peninsula leagues also played a match. Artico knows the Nepean League team will need to be at its best to defeat Heathcote which is expected to field an experienced line-up. ‘‘From what I can find out we’ll be up against a heavier set squad, stronger and bigger bodies,’’ he said.

Star power: Rye’s Rhett Sutton will represent the Nepean League against the Heathcote and District Football League on Saturday. Picture: Sam Stiglec ‘‘The Nepean League is quick and plenty of running so we expect them to try and play a game with a lot of stoppages.’’ An under-17 team from the Nepean League

will play the curtain-raiser against the Heathcote and District Football League from 11.30am at QE2 oval, Bendigo. The senior match will start at 2pm.

Mornington too wet

Rays lose their sting in second half DANDENONG Stingrays coach Graeme Yeats knows his team can’t afford to continue playing patchy football, despite the TAC Cup team defeating Bendigo Pioneers by 17 points at on Saturday. Playing at Epsom Huntly Reserve in Bendigo, the Stingrays busted the game open in the first half and took a 34-point break into the long change, but the Pioneers lifted to win the final two quarters. Yeats said the intensity shown in the first half — when the Stingrays kicked 8.8 (56) to 3.4 (22) — was required throughout the game. “This is the second time we have travelled to Bendigo this year. The Pioneers are a stronger side at home and defiantly challenge other TAC Cup sides up here,’’ he said. “Our second half wasn’t that flash. I’m not sure if we switched off or ran out of steam. We [ 38 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

will address that in the next few days.” Despite the Pioneers having the better of the centre clearances, the Stingrays controlled the contested and uncontested ball. The back six also stood tall. Tyle Williams, Daylan Kempster and Kyle Gray dominated the aerial contests while captain Nathan Foote, Zak Jones and Sam Crawford provided the dash from the back half. The Stingrays now clash with North Ballarat Rebels at Shepley Oval on Saturday and talent manager Mark Wheeler is urging the players to consolidate positions in the team. “We brought in three players today. One for his first game for the year in Billy Hartung, who will be better for the touch,’’ he said. ‘‘Today was a good lesson for the boys in never to give your opposition a sniff . . . this competition is so close that being slightly off can really

May 22, 2013

hurt you and they defiantly had a real crack in that last quarter.” “Next week but have a few players out who have Vic Country duties meaning the match committee will have to bring in players who are capable to play at this level . . . some may get their first opportunity; for others it may be close to their last chance if that can’t cement their spot into the team.” ■ Eight Dandenong Stingrays have been named in the the Victorian Country squad to play at the NAB under-18 national championships. Clayton McCartney, Billy Hartung, Zak Jones, Josh Pickess, James Harmes, Daniel Capiron, Tom Lamb and Brady Egan were named in the 40-man squad. Vic Country will play its first game of the championships against Western Australia at Blacktown International Sports Park, Sydney, on July 6.

MORNINGTON Racing Club was forced to abandon its meeting on Sunday because of the state of the track. It was rated a heavy nine on Saturday night but 14mm of rain overnight forced Racing Victoria stewards to call off the meeting. The three jumps races, the $20,000 Robert Fitzgerald Memorial Maiden Hurdle (3300m), the $100,000 Jack Dow Memorial Hurdle and the $100,000 Great Southern Steeplechase (3300m), have been re-programmed to run at today’s Sportingbet Park meeting. While all Sunday’s flat races were abandoned, trainers had the option to nominate for the flat races at Sandown, which will now feature 11 races. Champion jumper Black And Bent, who was set to return to the track in the Jack Dow Memorial Hurdle at Mornington, had to wait until today to chase his 10th consecutive win over hurdles, and what would be a new Australian winning record over jumps.


Rousing win puts Redlegs in reckoning

FINALSCORES TAC Cup: Dandenong Stingrays 10.16 (76) d Bendigo Pioneers 9.5 (59)

MT Eliza got its season back on track with a stunning 24-point victory over Frankston YCW in their Peninsula League grand final rematch at Emil Madsen Reserve on Saturday. Last year’s runner-up has struggled to find its feet this season, mustering up just the two wins up until the upset over the premier. Mt Eliza coach Jason Watts was seething after last week’s narrow loss to the Pines, swinging the axe on his senior line-up and bringing some fresh faces to breathe new life into his side. ‘‘We had a few players who just weren’t performing,’’ Watts said. ‘‘We made some tough calls at the selection table and the guys who came in really performed for us.’’ Veterans Nick Cattanach and Tim Groot as well as young gun Mitch Wilson were among the names brought into the Redlegs side. The match was played at slightly subdued pace to what was anticipated and the Redlegs took full advantage of the weary-looking Stonecats. The Redlegs led at every change with onballers Josh Norman and Rohan Heasley dictating the play out of the centre. Mt Eliza ruckman Will Suhr added a string to his bow, Watts moving the big man into defence with plenty of effect. The youngster closed down Stonecats forward Brad Ulms. In spite of the loss Frankston YCW coach Tony Barry was optimistic about what his side was able to take away from the match. ‘‘If someone was to say to us at the start of the year that we would be six wins and one loss by the break you would certainly take that,’’ Barry said. ‘‘You learn a lot more from a loss than you do a win, so we’ll take plenty away from the game.’’ Frankston YCW suffered another blow to its ruck stocks. Josh Leary copped a knock to his arm and ended his day at quarter-time, with 18-year-old Brenton Credlin forced to shoulder the ruck. The Stonecats have limped to this Saturday’s interleague bye. The premiers are looking forward to the return of a number players, including defender

Byron Barry. ‘‘The break has come at the right time for us,’’ Tony Barry said. The win came at the perfect time for the ailing Redlegs and keeps their finals dream alive. ‘‘Wins like these really give you a lot of belief,’’ Watts said. In other Peninsula League matches, Karingal muzzled the inaccurate Bulldogs to win by 14 points and inflict Mornington’s third successive defeat. Pines escaped with an 11-point win over the fast

Bombers repel threat from young Eagles BY MORGAN COLE FRANKSTON Bombers remain undefeated with a 10-point win over Somerville in a Nepean League clash at Somerville Recreation Reserve on Saturday. The Bombers join fellow Nepean heavyweight Sorrento at the top of the table as the only sides without a loss to their name. Both have seven wins. Somerville has shown its growing maturity this season with youngsters Rowan Hogenbirk, Rhys Palmer and Justin Allsop all major contributors. The young Eagles matched the Bombers’ physical intensity in the first term.

The Bombers appeared to have taken control by half-time after a scrappy first half. The Eagles showed plenty of bite as they kept themselves well in the contest. Frankston Bombers innovated up forward, playing-coach Duncan Proud switching ends in the third term and stretching the Eagles’ defence, the defender snagging two majors before returning to the back half. ‘‘They lacked a few talls down back,’’ Proud said. ‘‘We saw an opportunity to stretch them and it paid off.’’ The Eagles were relentless with their pressure, giving them the edge in the centre clearances, Hogenbirk working hard at the coal face.

‘‘They [Somerville] are a lot better than what people give them credit for,’’ Proud said. ‘‘They’re a young group and are really headed in the right direction.’’ Bombers Zac Longham and Scott Foster were dangerous up forward, Longham bagging four majors in one of his best performances for the season. The final term was a tense physical finish with the Bombers grinding out a win over the surging Eagles. Justin Farrelly put in another best-onground performance for Somerville. ‘‘It was a hard-fought win and a real testament to the boys to get over the line,’’ Proud said. ‘‘We’re really getting the reward for our work

over the pre-season.’’ In other Nepean League matches, Crib Point overran Devon Meadows by 11 points after trailing at three-quarter-time. Sorrento thumped Rosebud to the tune of 106 points, Sharks forward Leigh Poholke again in fine touch slotting six majors. Dromana handed Rye a 64-point smashing. Pearcedale accounted for Tyabb with a 41-point victory, Panthers forward Patrick Heijden dominating with a 10-goal haul to take his season tally to 38 from just seven games. Hastings notched its second win for the year destroying struggling Red Hill by 96 points. Blues forward Dylan Hand had six majors.
