Zoning shake-up on the way would be expected to rely heavily on existing overlays and policies to prove their case at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal when up against developers. Perhaps one of the biggest changes is the provision to allow commercial developments in residential zones to have ‘as of right’ uses. Mr Cowley said this could lead to the hollowing out of town centres and major activity areas as developers buy up cheaper land further out of town or in neighbouring areas. He said the changes were in some cases dramatically different to current planning conditions. ‘‘In some cases it will mean going from certain developments being prohibited to being as of right.’’ Mr Guy said the current planning reforms were outdated. ‘‘The aim of the zone reform package is to contemporise Victoria’s planning structure,’’ he said. ‘‘We can’t have planning reforms that were developed in the 1970s in place in 2012. We are in a very difficult economic time and this will encourage business growth.’’ He said councils worried about businesses moving out of town precincts were living in the

BY SAMANTHA ROBIN CHANGES to planning zones throughout the state could have monumental outcomes for the character of the Mornington Peninsula. In a major shake-up of Victoria’s planning zones, Planning Minister Matthew Guy has outlined a reform package which proposes significant changes to residential, commercial, industrial and rural zones. The changes, if adopted, will make it easier for developers to build within commercial precincts and will make it harder for councils to impose conditions on how developments should fit into the local area. Mr Guy told the Weekly the changes were meant to stimulate the economy through future development by making it easier for developers to get plans through the council. But some strategic planners are concerned about the changes. At a public meeting held last week by Mornington Peninsula Shire, strategic planning manager Allan Cowley said the shire was concerned about the impact the changes could have. He said if the plans were adopted councils

past. ‘‘It’s just 1970s rhetoric,’’ Mr Guy said. ‘‘This is coming from a handful of people in the planning industry who have been frustrating people for the past 30 years. That time is over.’’ Mr Guy expected the changes to be adopted the month after submissions closed on September 21. Councils would have 12 months to put the changes into effect. ‘‘The planners who are resisting these changes are probably the ones who need to pick up their socks in terms of efficiency,’’ he said. Mr Guy said the reforms had been two years in the making. ‘‘Councils have been asking for extra power and authority for nearly 10 years and they will get it through these reforms.’’ ‘‘It gives councils the ability to consider those permits they have never been able to consider before.’’ Mornington Peninsula Shire will host public information sessions on the zone reform package on Friday at Mornington library from 6.30-7.30pm and at the Rosebud Council office on Monday from 6.30-7.30pm.

Despite heavy hail and strong winds, there was minimal damage reported on the peninsula. The SES was called to two jobs in Mt Martha, both involving trees that had fallen down.

Outdoor work suits enterprising pair BY SAMANTHA ROBIN TWO young men are gaining skills and employment though apprenticeships at Mornington Peninsula Youth Enterprise. Josh Meiklem, 20, and James Deery, 23, are completing their horticulture certificate II and have a bright future ahead of them. The men, who have mild intellectual disabilities and found theoretical and classroom-based learning a challenge, are thriving in an outdoor environment. They have been supported by disability employment service provider Job Focus in Frankston, and their wages from MPYE are subsidised through the federal government’s wage connect scheme. Mr Meiklem said the experience at MPYE had been awesome. ‘‘I like working in the outdoors. The people are great here and they are very hard workers.’’ He was happy about the opportunities that had opened up since taking up the apprenticeship. ‘‘I struggled with reading and spelling at

It is more hands on and I’ve really enjoyed it.’’ Mr Deery said it had been a great experience. ‘‘For me, I think I will enjoy a job working outdoors.’’ Both men are now looking at futures in horticulture and landscaping. MPYE deputy chairman Bob Couchman said the pair were working five days a week for their apprenticeship. ‘‘They are good lads. It is easier for them to learn through experience in the outdoors than in a classroom set-up.’’ MPYE works with disadvantaged people aged from 15-25 to give them skills and experience and to bring some sense of purpose back into their lives. ‘‘We put them in touch with employers when they finish their apprenticeship and help them find work,’’ Mr Couchman said.

Development concern in national parks BY LEE OPITZ POINT Nepean and Mornington Peninsula national parks could be targeted by hotel developers after the state government last week announced a new policy to encourage tourism investment in these areas. The changes, outlined in the government’s response to the Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission’s final report into Victoria’s tourism industry, will allow ‘‘appropriate, environmentally sensitive’’ private sector tourism investment in national parks. However, while development is likely to be more in line with five-star camping, backpacker accommodation or high-end apartments, there is some concern the decision will also pave the way for hotel and resort-type development. Point Nepean National Park has been undergoing a major upgrade over the past few months. The $13.8 million investment includes new service trenches for electricity, sewerage, water, gas and telecommunications as well as upgrades to existing roads and a 140-space car park. The Friends of Point Nepean member Chris Smyth said it was obvious that major infrastructure works had been leading to some sort of development.

Protection needed: The quarantine station at Point Nepean National Park is earmarked for development. Picture: Daryl Gordon

‘‘I support a plan to conserve the quarantine station — something has to be done or it will disintegrate. But this doesn’t have to be some new development. The station could be renovated and brought up to current standards of accommodation by putting in en suites for example,’’ he said. ‘‘But I am very concerned about the possibility

of development going on in other areas of the park.’’ State Treasurer Kim Wells said the policy would bring Victoria into line with every other state in Australia, as well as New Zealand, which already allowed development in national parks. Mr Wells said any investment proposal would be subject to tight environmental controls and

approval from the environment minister. “The minister will also be able to grant up to 99-year leases in national parks to provide greater certainty for investors to help encourage investments which enhance visitor experience. “Lease conditions will ensure that proposals are consistent with the principles of ecological sustainable development and include conditions necessary to manage any environmental risks. “The guidelines developed by the government will consider values of public land categories, planning requirements for bushfire risk, climate variability and any native title implications.” Tourism Minister Louise Asher said Victoria was competing with other states, the Northern Territory and New Zealand to gain market share in the lucrative eco-tourism sector, and needed to improve its offering to travellers to induce them to stay longer in regional Victoria. ■ The Victorian National Parks Association, in conjunction with the Environment Defenders Office, will hold a seminar at the Rosebud library from 5.30pm-7pm on Thursday, September 20 to help people understand the impact of changes to environmental laws, and how community members can be heard on the issues. Bookings are essential. To register, go to edovic.org.au/ defendingenvironmental-laws-seminar-rosebud.

Brothers spring into education project THE best business ideas are often thought up over a few beers and it was no different for Charles Davidson. Meeting up with a friend while working in Tokyo he was asked what he wanted to do with his life. His immediate response was that he wanted to set up his own business in natural hot springs. The taste for hot springs he developed in Japan had become a passion and eventually brought him back to the Mornington Peninsula to a special plot of land with geothermal properties. The venture came with great risk and expense, with more than $800,000 outlayed just to locate the hot bore, more than 600 metres below the surface. Now, more than 15 years after Mr Davidson purchased land in Rye with his brother Richard, Peninsula Hot Springs has become a tourism icon. A Tourism Quality grant of $100,000 recently announced by the federal government will allow

them to develop a bird sanctuary and wetlands. The wetlands area has always been part of the master plan for the hot springs and is the next stage in the development. When completed, the wetlands will become an educational tool for school groups to learn about natural habitats, as well as the geothermal properties of the area. Mr Davidson said the grant would expand on the work they had already done to reintroduce native flora to the area and embrace the natural environment. More than 20,000 indigenous plants have already been raised at the Peninsula Hot Springs’ own nursery. ‘‘The wetlands will enable us to take on more staff and will give us the foundation to build accommodation at the hot springs,’’ Mr Davidson said. Work would begin on the wetlands as soon as possible. ‘‘We have already planted more than 30,000 trees since we bought the site and this will allow us to continue to regenerate the area and reintroduce indigenous flora and fauna.’’

New speed zones BY SANDRA BULL

Happy birthday: Nicola Roxon officially opens the new Peninsula Community Legal Centre premises. Picture: Daryl Gordon

Legal centre’s double celebration THERE were two reasons for staff to celebrate at the Peninsula Community Legal Centre earlier this month. Not only was it the centre’s 35th birthday, federal Attorney-General Nicola Roxon was on hand to officially open its larger Frankston premises. Ms Roxon praised the centre for providing those less fortunate with important legal resources, advice and support.

Starting as a volunteer-based advice and referral centre in 1977, PCLC has grown to provide key services to the municipalities covering Frankston, the Mornington Peninsula, Casey, Cardinia, Glen Eira and Kingston. The centre, now based at 441 Nepean Highway, Frankston, also has an office in Rosebud.

SEVERAL speed zones will be phased out under a state government overhaul to make Victoria’s roads less confusing for drivers. The changes include scrapping 80km/h buffer zones and fewer speed zones, with 90km/h and 70km/h zones to be phased out. Roads Minister Terry Mulder said the shakeup followed more than 600 submissions from the public and input from the Speed Limit Advisory Group. VicRoads executive director for road safety and network access David Shelton said 80km/h signs in buffer zones would be replaced with ‘60 Ahead’ signs, allowing drivers to slow down at their own rate. Guidelines would also be developed for where and when 40km/h zones were appropriate, he said. “We will review each of the areas with 90km/h or 70km/h signs on a case-by-case basis. ‘‘ This will occur with extensive consultation, and won’t happen overnight. ‘‘For now, many 70km/h and 90km/h speed limits will remain in place. “The changes to speed limits represent a balance between smoothing out travel speeds

and the safety of all road users,” Mr Shelton said. For full details of changes across the state, go to the interactive map at vicroads.vic.gov.au/ SpeedReview. Below are the changes which have been announced for the Mornington Peninsula. ■ Balnarring: Stumpy Gully Road, between Sandy Point Road and 400 metres north of Clarke Street: ‘60 Ahead’ warning signs will be installed at the change point from the unsealed road to the sealed road to advise drivers of the 60km/h limit ahead. ■ Mt Eliza: Nepean Highway between Tower and Oakbank roads. The short 90km/h zone will be reduced to 80km/h to reduce the number of speed limit changes. ■ Mornington: Mornington Tyabb Road between Mornington racecourse and Moorooduc Highway: The 90km/h zone will be reduced to 80km/h due to the road alignment and to be consistent with the speed zone east of Moorooduc Highway. ■ Mt Martha: The Esplanade between south of Strachans Road and south of Victoria Crescent: The 70km/h zone will be lowered to 60km/h to reduce the number of speed limit changes along the route.

Soil testing at swamp land site BY SAMANTHA ROBIN

‘The application was withdrawn from the DAC meeting because additional research was required to be undertaken by council officers.’ — Angela Hughes

AN application for a planning permit to expand a Rosebud retirement village has been withdrawn while the developer undertakes soil testing. Developer Chas Jacobsen is planning a 36-unit expansion of The Village Glen on what is currently swamp land. At a Mornington Peninsula Shire Council development assessments committee meeting last week, the item was taken off the agenda while council officers undertake further investigation. The council’s manager statutory planning Angela Hughes said the application had been referred to the Environment Protection Authority. ‘‘The application was withdrawn from the DAC meeting because additional research was required to be undertaken by council officers,’’ she

said. ‘‘The council understands the applicant is currently undertaking soil testing.’’ Ms Hughes said the item would be brought back to a meeting of the committee but a date had not yet been set. Environmentalists opposing the development are worried about the impact it would have on the local flora and fauna in the area, including the nearby wetlands.

Hub offers a break for parents AN occasional childcare service is now being offered at the Community Hub in Rosebud West. One of the few centres on the southern peninsula offering occasional care, the service began in April and caters for children aged 12 months to five years. Occasional childcare sessions cost $25 and generally last four to five hours. Community Hub early years coordinator Kathryn Rothacker said it was an opportunity for parents to have a break while the children enjoyed some social interaction. Children must be walking to attend the occasional care. The hub also offers kindergarten sessions and has retained staff from the former community house in Boneo Road, where they were previously based. For those with a healthcare card, four-year-old kindergarten is free, otherwise it is $210 a term. Threeyear-old kindergarten will also be offered from next year. Ms Rothacker said the kindergarten

Picture: Daryl Gordon

‘‘We will be doing some 15-hour sessions and 10.7-hour sessions for the four year olds next year and three hour sessions up to twice a week for the three year olds. ‘‘People are welcome to come along to the hub at any time for a tour of the centre.’’ The Community Hub is at 11a Allambi Avenue, Rosebud West, behind Eastbourne Primary School.

Friends of creek score top award

Our eateries hit the headlines

A GROUP dedicated to saving the endangered swamp skink has been named a winner in the 2012 Keep Australia Beautiful Victoria awards. Friends of Chinamans Creek, who revegetate and remove rubbish from Chinamans Creek and Drum Drum Alloc Creek in Rosebud West, won the protection of the environment award in the clean beaches category. Friends of Chinamans Creek member Norm McKinlay said it was a big win for such a small group. ‘‘Considering a little friends group can knock off the big councils, it is a great achievement,’’ he said. ‘‘We have a whole wall of awards that we have won over the years. It is reward for more than 20 years of hard work we have put in.’’

MORNINGTON Peninsula restaurants and cafes have again triumphed over top regional eateries in the state. At the Awards for Excellence, presented by Restaurant and Catering Victoria last Monday week in Melbourne, Salix Bistro in Merricks was named best cafe restaurant. Cape Schanck Resort won the award for top restaurant in a hotel, motel or resort and Spoon, in Mt Eliza, took out the European restaurant award. Steam, in Rye, won the modern Asian restaurant category. “It’s a bit overwhelming still. I couldn’t be happier,” Steam proprietor Jennifer Stephenson said. “Modern Asian cuisine is still something that’s developing outside of metropolitan Melbourne, so I think we have delivered the right concept at the right time.” “Steam is definitely not in the realm

of traditional Asian and we are still a bit of a new frontier to Australian diners. We have taken some great flavours and concepts and turned them into something that’s a little more familiar,” she said. Breakfast restaurant award finalists included Two Buoys in Dromana and Lilo Cafe in Mornington. The Long Table in Red Hill South was a contemporary Australian restaurant (formal) finalist. Cafe restaurant finalists included Buckley’s Chance in Sorrento, Lilo Cafe, Rye Pier Restaurant and Two Buoys. Restaurant in a winery finalists included Max’s at Red Hill Estate, Montalto, Paringa, Salix, Stillwater and Ten Minutes by Tractor. Ciao Bella Pizzeria in Balnarring was a finalist in the Italian restaurant category and Terminus at Flinders Hotel received an honourable mention in the new restaurant category.

A DROMANA couple is counting their blessings, despite losing almost all their possessions in a house fire. Angela Cavallo and her mother watched as the home continued to smoulder early Monday morning. The roof had collapsed and the entire contents of the home were destroyed in the blaze, which broke out just before 6.30am. Just hours before, Mrs Cavallo’s father had been rushed to hospital. Mrs Cavallo said it was a blessing in disguise because otherwise her parents, both in their 70s, might have been at home when the blaze broke out. ‘‘I am just glad I took mum home and didn’t leave her here,’’ she said. ‘‘We are relieved they weren’t here at the time. If they had been here I don’t think they would have made it.’’ Mrs Cavallo thanked the neighbours for their concern and support. ‘‘The neighbour across the road hurt his hand when he broke one of the windows trying to get in. I hope he is OK.’’ Firefighters pulled a handful of salvageable

Award for sea rescue A VICTORIAN man was honoured in the Australian Bravery Awards this week for saving a man trapped in a capsized fishing vessel at Point Nepean. Byron Marshall was awarded a bravery medal for his role in the December 2010 rescue. When the alarm was raised that a vessel had overturned in rough water, Mr Marshall and two colleagues boarded a boat in Queenscliff harbour and made their way towards the upturned boat. After establishing that 10 of the 12 people on the charter boat had been rescued, Mr Marshall jumped into the water and swam about 100 metres towards the vessel to search for the remaining two passengers. After reaching the fishing boat, Mr Marshall tried to untangle a deceased man floating face down with lines wrapped around his legs. Realising the conditions were worsening, and in danger of being entangled himself, he shouted into the vessel to check if the remaining passenger was nearby. A man trapped inside responded

and Mr Marshall assisted him to an opening on the vessel’s bridge. Mr Marshall pulled the man free of the boat and a rescue helicopter winched him to safety.

Murderer gets 181⁄2 years A MORNINGTON Peninsula man who hacked a woman to death with a Gurkha knife last year has been sentenced to 181⁄2 years in jail for the ‘‘foul and horrible murder’’. Social misfit and drug user Justin Patrick Hill attacked 30-year-old Erin Burriss in June last year after she went to his Dromana home and started verbally abusing Hill and his parents. The two were friends, but had argued at Ms Burriss’ unit after she accused Hill of not washing the dishes properly. Hill then went home, Ms Burriss followed him and bashed on his front door with a log splitter, before Hill charged out of the house with the knife. ‘‘The exceptional violence of the attack, especially in circumstances where there was no genuine threat from Erin which could have warranted such a response, is inexplicable,’’ Supreme Court judge Ross Robson said, before sentencing Hill last week to a minimum of 15 years’ jail. ‘‘It is in fact difficult to contemplate

any threat that would warrant the kind of injuries you inflicted on Erin,’’ Judge Robson said. Ms Burriss’ mother, Kerry, said in a victim impact statement that her daughter’s murder had a lasting and traumatic effect on her family. ‘‘No mother should ever have to experience the loss of a child, especially due to a crime. I am angry that I will never see Erin again. I still can’t believe that something so tragic happened to my girl,’’ she stated. During the trial, the jury heard that Hill, 36, slashed Ms Burriss up to 10 times in the head, face and arms after she arrived at his house at 12.45am on June 9. After attacking Ms Burriss, Hill said to his parents; ‘‘there, problem solved’’ before putting his bloodstained clothes in the laundry and sitting at a computer with a cup of coffee to play a game. Ms Burriss and Hill had had a volatile relationship, characterised by drug abuse, paranoia on Hill’s part and deepening tension. Hill’s lawyer, Mar-

cus Dempsey, argued in mitigation that he was also fearful that he and his family were going to be attacked by another acquaintance, Jason Webb. A log splitter was found near Ms Burriss’ body, but the prosecution had said there was no evidence she had threatened Hill with it, and Hill had no injuries suggesting he had been attacked. Hill was a long-time cannabis user, a former heroin user and abused prescription medication that had originally been prescribed for Ms Burriss, Mr Dempsey said. The Age revealed earlier this month that Hill’s brother, Mark James Hill, was convicted of beating his exgirlfriend’s new boyfriend to death in a jealous rage in 2004 at a Somerville property, and was sentenced to a maximum of 17 years in prison. Mark Hill was 29 when he bashed 22-year-old physiotherapist Adrian Scholes so badly a forensic pathologist at the trial said Mr Scholes’ skull was like a ‘‘broken Easter egg’’. — Dan Oakes/The Age

His story told, pilot at peace A CHANCE meeting has led to buried memories being unearthed — and a new book. Never Been Hit tells the story of Rye man Les Streete and his experiences as an Australian flying officer with the RAF during World War II. He was one of the many thousands who journeyed to Canada to train as a fighter pilot, later joining 66 Squadron RAF in Belgium at the end of November 1944. Mr Streete’s logbook became a lasting record of his war service, but preferring to forget the often painful memories, on his return to Australia he put the journal away. More than 60 years later, during a casual meeting with peninsula aviation enthusiast Peter Fitton, he was encouraged to lay some demons to rest and talk about his experiences. Fitton says Never Been Hit, his first book, is the remarkable story of a country boy from New South Wales who found himself involved in defence of Britain and Holland against a German onslaught. He was a part of the infamous Battle of the Bulge, Germany’s last stand against the Allies and the defeat of the Russian army.

‘Writing this book has been a challenge and a privilege.’ — Peter Fitton The book details Mr Streete’s flight training and combat experience and includes photographs and campaign maps. Fitton said writing Never Been Hit had not only brought peace to Mr Streete, but given new generations the opportunity to learn more about Australia’s war history through an extraordinary memoir. ‘‘Writing this book has been a challenge and a privilege,’’ he said.

INBRIEF Blue line extended The Frankston and Mornington Peninsula police service areas were last week allocated 29 extra police, the biggest share of 350 extra positions throughout the state. Senior police will decide which stations get the extra numbers that will be operational by next June. Deputy Commissioner Lucinda Nolan said that all up, 1200 extra police positions had been allocated across the state since early last year under the state government’s commitment to recruit an extra 1700 police by November 2014. “This is about providing police numbers where they are most needed — whether that is in order to tackle statewide priorities that Victoria Police has identified, such as serious and organised crime and road safety, or local crimes impacting on individuals and communities like family violence and property damage.”

Leads sought on bashing Police are appealing for anyone with information about the bashing of a Mt Martha man to come

forward. The man, 61, who was working as a security guard, was taken to The Alfred hospital with head injuries following an attack by four men in Carrum Downs on August 15. The Quad Security employee was checking a gate at the thoroughfare between Fernwren Place and Ballarto Road when he saw the men and asked them which side of the gate they would like to be on before he locked it. Detective Senior Constable Helen Vanzetta of the Frankston crime investigation unit said the victim was seriously assaulted and knocked unconscious. Nothing was taken from the man or his car, parked at a nearby bus stop. The man had remembered very little about his attackers, except that they were adults, not youths. ‘‘He was surprised they were there. He was just doing his rounds and minding his own business,’’ Senior Detective Vanzetta said. The security guard has since been released from hospital. Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

This year, the Mornington Peninsula relay raised almost $109,000 and Mr Lane, who is chairman of the 2013 event, plans to do even better. Relay for Life is a 24-hour community event that raises money for the Cancer Council in each state for cancer research, education and support programs. It started in 1985 in the United States when colorectal surgeon Gordy Klatt ran around an oval for 24 hours to raise money and cancer awareness. Similar events are now held in more than 600 communities across 20 countries. Australia joined the campaign in 1999 and raises more than $14 million each year. This year, 36 Victorian communities are holding an event. By next year, it’s hoped 26 relays will be added.

Apart from walking or running around the oval, events include entertainment and touching ceremonies such as a candlelight tribute and personal pledges to cut the risk of cancer,’’ she said. Mr Lane said he welcomed any assistance and was particularly keen to get more people on the southern peninsula involved. ‘‘Whether you have an estab-

lished area of expertise, or keen to learn a new skill, there are many ways to help at a Relay for Life. ‘‘With volunteer opportunities ranging from catering, facilities and entertainment, PR, sponsorship and treasury, survivor and carer support, there are countless options to provide meaningful support.’’ To find out more, email colin.lane @aus.salvationarmy.org or call him on 0457 773 560.

FEATURESTORY

Gone too soon: Chris Barrett’s life was cut short at just 16.

Helping hand: Nick Burbounis at his peninsula youth centre.

With a little help, it’s aniel Cox is living proof that a young life teetering on the edge can be turned around. Five years ago, an interstate move from Perth, a strained relationship with his stepfather and incessant bullying led Daniel, then 14 and living in Rosebud, to ride his bike in front of a car in an attempt to end his life. The Rosebud High School parent behind the wheel managed to stop in time. Abandoning her car and Daniel’s bike on the road, she grasped hold of the teen and walked him to the school office, refusing to loosen her grip until Daniel’s mother Claire arrived. ‘‘Daniel kept it all quiet. It is a phone call I’ll never forget. I thought my son wouldn’t do that and then realised my child has bigger problems that I can cope with,’’ Mrs Cox said. Cause of death records suggest that a Victorian dies by their own hand at least every 171⁄2 hours, an Australian every four hours and globally a person commits suicide every 30 seconds. The true number of lives lost remains unknown. As well as stigma and denial, there are often practical problems associated with determining a person’s intentions after their death or suicide attempt. Sometimes there is no evidence — no suicide note and no recorded mental health problems. Even when deaths are known to be suicide-

Every year, almost twice as many Victorians end their own lives as die in road accidents. ALECIA PINNER finds out how silence fails when lives are on the line. related, extreme secrecy surrounding suicide statistics makes it impossible to pinpoint where they happened — and for open, informed public discussion on the issue. The Weekly is aware of at least 10 people from Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula who have killed themselves over the past few years. There have undoubtedly been many more, but agencies won’t release specific figures. Although 2010 suicide data was released earlier this year, the Australian Bureau of Statistics refused to reveal the number of deaths per local council area to the Weekly, citing ‘identification fears’. A Coroner’s Court representative said they no longer kept the data. Peninsula Health, Frankston Council, Lifeline, the National Coroners Information System via the Justice Department and the Monash University Victorian Injury Surveillance Unit were also unable to provide the data. Most said they didn’t have it. So how do society, and authorities, identify who needs help?

August 29, 2012

It seems the dark reality of suicide is only known by loved ones left behind to desperately try and come to terms with the senseless death, within a system that offers very limited answers. Frankston psychologist Di McGreal said the dearth of specific statistics and previous lack of media reporting of suicide were a ‘‘very important part of the cover up’’, which she referred to as the ‘‘don’t talk about it syndrome’’. The primary fear, which deterred media outlets from reporting suicides, was that copycats would mimic these deaths. This copycat syndrome was dubbed the ‘Werther effect’ after the Goethe book published in 1774 portrayed the hero, Werther, committing suicide because he could not secure his love. Suicide rates across some European countries rose dramatically and the emerging consequences of romanticising and glamourising rising suicide led to the book being banned. Earlier this year, Australian government and welfare agencies advised that suicides should be reported sensitively, although identifying exact

locations and methods is still not advised. Dr McGreal said secrecy was more likely to encourage copycats than reporting sensibly, as vulnerable people were less likely to come forward and discuss their issues if they felt isolated. ‘‘If we brought the facts out into the light anyone feeling like they aren’t safe would be more likely to seek help. ‘‘If young people see us hiding reality and the facts — why wouldn’t they think something was wrong with what they’re feeling? ‘‘Talking to them about suicide doesn’t give them the idea to do it.’’ Dr McGreal said even if suicide had been contemplated, the act itself was usually spontaneous and committed in a disassociated state. If the person who had decided to end their life could be stopped for 20 minutes, there was a much better chance they would not go through with it, she said. ‘‘Suicide is the No. 1 reason for death for young men and women. Fifty per cent of people who successfully suicide have tried before. It is a myth that if people say they’re going to kill themselves, they won’t do it. ‘‘If you think someone’s at risk tell them you’re worried about them. Ask them the hard questions. Ask ‘how would you do it?’ If they

back from the brink have a plan act straightaway and if they don’t, act anyway.’’ Dr McGreal said the social stigma prevented some families from seeking help before it was too late, with a third of her grief counselling clients seeking help after the loss of a loved one to suicide. ‘‘They are trying to make sense of something that doesn’t make sense at all. The sad thing is some parents will try to avoid facing that there’s something wrong with their family because they are worried people will make value judgments. It is very important to realise the best parents in the world can have these difficulties occur. ‘‘Suicide is not a selfish act. It is the act of someone who is unwell. Before another sunset happens, ask your son or daughter how they’re doing.’’ McClelland College student Chris Barrett, 16, committed suicide in 2010 after a short battle with psychosis. His mother Allison said mental health education should be taught in schools, and to parents as well as students, as anyone could be affected. ‘‘Chris wasn’t the kid at school you would think had a mental illness. His teachers couldn’t believe it. ‘‘If people are more aware of symptoms and parents, friends and peers know the signs, it

might mean the person gets help earlier. It is important for kids not to be afraid of talking about it. Kids, if a friend says something, tell someone. It’s not a confidence you should keep.’’ Mrs Barrett said suicide was a permanent solution for what was usually a temporary problem, even if it didn’t always feel like it. ‘‘I don’t think they realise they aren’t just taking their own lives but a part of so many lives around them. It lasts forever and is such a waste of life. You do feel like a bad parent. If you blame yourself at least it makes sense. Don’t do it. If you can’t not do it for yourself, then don’t do it for all the other people. ‘‘Chris’ sisters have to live the rest of their lives without him.’’ There was a happy ending for the Cox family. Now 19, Daniel has returned to Perth and is studying at university and working as a pizza store assistant manger at night. Mrs Cox credits the peninsula Fight 4 Life youth club and its founder Nick Burbounis for helping turn her son around. ‘‘He could go there when there was nothing else and he could say anything to Nick. He could be who he was and it was like escaping. When he was a 14 year old he was just a mess and now at 19 we are talking about a different person.’’ A youth worker, Mr Burbounis works entirely

on a volunteer basis and the club does not get any ongoing government funding. It is operational thanks to the generosity of peninsula and Frankston individuals and businesses, including Allan Williams, who recently donated the club’s lease costs for a year. The club, which promotes a pressure-free environment for young people, recently moved to new, larger premises in Rosebud West and there are plans to extend its services from primarily physical activity. ‘‘Eventually I want to feed the homeless kids with soup or stew every night and teach literacy, numeracy and independent-living skills,’’ said Mr Burbounis, who has fond memories of Daniel’s time at the club. “Within a few months, Daniel went from being a sad, sorry young man who rode his bike in front of a car to a confident young man at peace. ‘‘He came five nights a week and was always there early. He was a great kid, a beautiful boy.’’ Mr Burbounis said young people often came to the centre with suicidal and criminal thoughts. He firmly believes suicide should be ‘‘talked about everywhere and anywhere’’. ‘‘Be there for them and listen. ‘‘A lot of people don’t want to talk about suicide because they don’t want to confront it.’’

It’s a dish we love and have toiled over and we think it’s now absolutely perfect. Consistency is important. The ribs are firstly steam roasted and then slowly braised in our own smoky-style bourbon sauce, laced with tomatoes, ginger, brown sugar, English mustard and a pinch of chilli.’’ Always serious about seafood, the Kings menu includes a seafood platter sprinkled with house-shucked oysters sourced from either Barilla Bay in Tasmania or Coffin Bay in SA.

stablished in 1990 as one of the peninsula’s family-owned and run pubs, Kings Creek Hotel in Hastings is also a regional landmark, thanks largely to its distinctive wind turbine. “We are continually expanding. Plans are in place to add a new ceiling, new carpet and a new [eastern] entry to the bistro. The room’s ‘fishing’ theme will be further developed too,” proprietor Greg Alderson said. “Our bistro’s ‘marine’ identity, that dad created, is part of Hastings’ culture so I thought it was pretty important to keep all that.’’ The eggs come from the family farm and scraps from the kitchen feed the free-range chickens. New head chef Michael Donnolley is focused on rebuilding the hotel’s menu. “I’m creating house-made relishes, tartare and mayos, made with Dijon mustard and quality oil, to help put a stamp on our style,” Donnolley said.

BY HAYDN GODONY

ell Shakespeare Company is bringing a beguiling comedy to the Frankston Arts Centre. The School for Wives, one of Moliere’s finest comedies, has been raising eyebrows since it was first performed 350 years ago. A man wants desperately to get married but is afraid a smart woman will cheat on him. His solution is to enlist the help of a local convent to raise a girl so stupidly innocent that she won’t know the first thing about cheating. In his mind she will be everfaithful. The perfect wife. Or is she? This witty love story which tangles innocence with arrogance — and the other way around — raises questions that are still relevant today. Are we all becoming fixated with controlling our destiny? We want the perfect partner. But can we design a life for ourselves and have it all go to plan? Is there any point in preoccupying ourselves with this or will fate and love pop in and take over whenever they please?

MOTORING ●

Peugeot makes styling statement Ewan Kennedy road tests French carmaker’s new compact SUV he 4008 is French carmaker Peugeot’s first entry into the booming compact SUV market. It’s part of a joint venture between Peugeot and Mitsubishi and comes from the same Japanese factory as the Mitsubishi ASX. The ASX was launched here in July 2010 nearly two years ahead of the Peugeot. Although the two vehicles are almost identical under the skin, the Peugeot 4008 and Mitsubishi ASX have their own distinctive styling. Styling is a very personal thing, but we’ve long been fans of the current Peugeot design theme, especially the wide-mouthed grille that stands out as the 4008’s dominant feature. Inside is a soft-texture fascia and lacquered piano-black centre console which add a gentle ambience. The controls are large and well-placed with an instrument panel that’s back-lit day and night. Interior space is about par for the course with reasonable rear headroom despite the dipping roof line. The rear seat is only suitable for two adults or three pre-teen children, with borderline

T

rear legroom when the front seat is well back. Boot capacity is 416 litres with a relatively high loading lip, partly the result of having a fullsized spare wheel under the floor. Storage space expands to 1193 litres with the rear seatbacks folded with the alternative of a ski hatch behind the folding armrest. Peugeot 4008 comes in two equipment levels: Active (with 2WD and AWD, manual and CVT) and Allure (AWD and CVT only). The 4008 is offered only with a 2.0-litre petrol engine. With a price range of $28,990 to $38,490, the Peugeot 4008 offers excellent value for a European SUV or, more correctly, a European-styled SUV. Overall, the Peugeot 4008 is a neat, well-built and well-engineered compact SUV that combines the best from its two source continents. It’s more at home in an urban rather than a rural environment where the combination of relatively heavy weight and small engine means that it can struggle in hilly areas. Equipment levels are high and it offers excellent value for money.

Distinctive: The Peugeot 4008 combines European style and Japanese engineering.

Trainer in clover with big double BY BRAD McGRATH LANG Lang trainer Dianne Clover will never forget last Tuesday week’s meeting at Mornington. Clover has just three horses in work and two of them saluted at the midweek meet on the peninsula — both at long odds. The well-known picnic circuit identity said she rated Mondano and To Cry For as legitimate chances heading into the meeting but had her doubts after the trial they were scheduled to run at Pakenham was cancelled. It was Clover’s first double on the ‘professional circuit’ in more than 13 years training. ‘‘I was very excited. I had a few doubles over the picnic circuit

but have never done it before on the professional circuit,’’ she said. Mondano ($21) proved too strong in the $15,000 Fastrac Foodservice Handicap (1013m), the nine year old showing she still had the passion for racing, beating home favourite Gotta Laugh ($2) and Allicanbee ($10). ‘‘It was Mondano’s first-up for me from a city trainer,’’ she said. ‘‘He’s a nine-year-old horse and we had to work out whether he still wanted to be a racehorse or not." Clover’s second victory was with a horse she part owns called To Cry For, with the injury-plagued gelding winning the $15,000 Guinot Skincare Handicap (1216m) from Ranjan and Glacier King.

The $21 chance has endured a string of injuries to his legs, meaning Clover has employed aqua training techniques to get fitness levels up. ‘‘He’s a very high-maintenance horse and he doesn’t gallop a lot, he swims a lot and does some bush work which isn’t too hard on his legs,’’ Clover said. ‘‘He won his last start at the Cranbourne night meeting and then we stepped him up to 1800m but it was too far. We’ll keep him over 1200-1400m.’’ Mornington trainer Jason Warren scratched Bel Sprinter from a trial at Cranbourne. The stable star was due to resume in last Saturday’s listed Carlyon Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley but a burst hoof abscess left him short of a gallop.

Stingrays in the mix with win

— Brad McGrath

Mornington’s Wayne Gordon is fouled during the Seagulls’ 1-1 draw with Malvern at Dallas Brooks Reserve on Saturday. The Seagulls remain in fifth position with three matches remaining in the FFV state league 2 south-east season.

on the ladder with three rounds in the winter pennant season to play. In a round of upsets, Mt Martha’s Phil Bolitho won a thriller against the highly ranked Sam Palmer and led his side to a 4-1 win against Frankston, who are now out of contention for the medal play-offs at the end of the home-and-away season. In the other match, second-placed Dromana scored a percentage-boosting 4-1 win against Somerville. Dromana’s Luke Bronsema won a tight seven-game match against Sean O’Meara before

Tripping up

Smashing victory puts Mornington in second spot MORNINGTON ace Jarryd Cathcart cruised to a 4-0 win against Mark Flavel in round seven of the Mornington Peninsula Table Tennis Association’s winter pennant competition. Flavel, who tasted defeat for only the second time this season, was outclassed by his hard-hitting opponent but still kept a stranglehold on the leading player award, with a two-game buffer on his nearest rival. Cathcart’s victory helped Mornington to a 3-2 win against Langwarrin and a share of second spot

O’Meara turned the tables on Bronsema’s partner, Stuart Sutherland, and won 11-9 in the seventh. Mornington has settled into second position on the A2 grade ladder, with Geoff Lloyd and Jim Furness on top of the leading player standings with 10-4 win-loss ratios. In A3 grade, Mornington has moved to the top of the ladder and looks set for a gold medal play-off in four weeks, thanks to Lucy Fowler, who has chalked up 12 wins from her 14 games to date.

DANDENONG Stingrays secured their top-four berth with a 28-point victory over Geelong at Highgate Recreation Reserve on Saturday. The Stingrays now clash with Gippsland Power at Visy Park on Saturday in a qualifying final and have a handful of players who could be recalled. Small forward Clayton McCartney is an almost certain inclusion but the Stingrays will closely monitor Nathan Wright (hamstring), Tim McGennis (knee) and Nick Newman (knee), who all suffered slight injuries in the victory over the Falcons. Stingrays regional manager Mark Wheeler said the coaching staff had placed a high emphasis on the match, as a loss could have had them plummet as low as eighth. ‘‘We had to control our own destiny,’’ he said. ‘‘It was an important game for both sides — they were pushing for a topfour spot and we could have drifted to eighth.’’ The Stingrays did not have it all their own way. At half-time they trailed by nine points but a few crucial positional changes sparked them in the second half. Lachie Whitfield’s move into the midfield was the turning point, with the highly rated youngster dominating the contest in the second half. Fellow star Billy Hartung was also instrumental in the victory, his run and poise helping the Stingrays kick seven goals to one in the second half. ‘‘Lachie was brilliant. He just jumped into the midfield in the second half and just turned it on,’’ Wheeler said. ‘‘He and Billy Hartung were excellent — it’s a real strength of our team that we have so many players who can go through the midfield.’’ A highlight of the contest was when ruckman Lewis Pierce took a strong mark on the boundary line and threaded a goal to seal the victory in the final term. Pierce received a heavy knock in the opening term and was below his best for much of the day but, like his team, roared to life in the final term. Wheeler said the Stingrays were primed for the clash against the Power, whom he described as a tough opposition. ‘‘Very, very strong team,’’ Wheeler said. ‘‘I rated them top two at the start of the season and it’s no surprise that they finished on top.’’

Pirates fall at last hurdle PENINSULA Old Boys have have come up short by the smallest of margins against Old Geelong in their division 1 Victorian Amateur Football Association match on Saturday at Como Park. While the game’s final result was only slim, the match was played at an underwhelming tempo with the teams set to finish second (Peninsula) and third (Old Geelong) regardless of the day’s result. Peninsula was without key players Ben Southam, Gary Carr and tagger Stan Grigg, with the trio being rested for next week’s final against top-placed North Old Boys-St Patrick’s. Midfielder Alex Wood and Stefan Barbour were at their best out of the midfield, the pair showing top form going into the business end of the year. The Pirates went into the final term trailing by 18 points but worked their way back into the clash. They had a chance to snatch victory with a shot on goal after the siren through young gun Jordan Pommeroy, but he was unable to convert. The Peninsula reserves have also clinched a finals berth, knocking off the top-placed Geelong reserves by three points. The under-19s have also secured their place in September. This is the first time all three sides have made finals for the Pirates. Club president Phillip Coghlan is thrilled with the result in what has so far been a successful season.. ‘‘We have always believed that as a club you need an under19s team,’’ he said. ‘‘It’s really starting to bear fruit in the seniors.’’ Mornington has gone down to Swinburne University in just its second loss for the year in its division 4 VAFA match-up at St James Park on Saturday. Despite the loss to second-placed Swinburne, the Tigers have held top spot with 16-2 win record and go in to the finals as well deserved flag favourites.

Resurgent Rye ends Rosebud’s run BY MORGAN COLE RYE has slammed the door on Rosebud’s finals campaign with a 66-point win in their MPNFL Nepean League elimination final at Pearcedale Recreation Reserve on Sunday. It was only week ago that the Buds stunned the Demons with 39-point win, making Rye senior coach Ben Holmes very cautious going into the match. “Last week they got away from us early, so it was important that we matched their intensity,’’ Holmes said. “We wanted to try and maintain that same level of intensity all game, which we did.” Rosebud defender Chris Rogers held Rye star forward Justin Van Unen goal-less the week before and again kept the forward modest early. Defenders Cody Mulcair and Luke Farrelly provided plenty of support for Rogers. “A lot of people forget that he [Van Unen] is only 22 and playing on a pretty big strong bloke in Chris Rogers,” Holmes said. Rye slowly chipped away at the Buds, the Demons controlling most of the play in the second quarter. Rye midfielder Hagan Rice worked tirelessly to send the Demons forward. The Demons midfield took control in the third term, Adam Kirkwood and Sean Cain starting to find the footy. Van Unen took full advantage of the midfield dominance breaking away from Rogers, booting six majors in the third quarter, finishing the day with seven and taking his season total to 105. The Buds were bolstered by utility Lachie Armstrong who was a shining light up forward

providing a reliable target and booting three majors, despite the lack of supply. Rosebud coach Mark Hustwaite was saddened by the loss and called it a day after his third stint at the helm in over 10 years of loyal service at the club. “I’ve had two premierships and four finals appearances so I’ve been pretty successful, But they definitely need someone new,” the club stalwart said. “My work really isn’t finished here. I’ll be around to help with the next coaching appointment.” Rye’s 17-year-old ruckman Brady Egan was lively for the Demons and the young gun filled the void left by big man Lyle House. Rye will now face off against Hastings in its semi-final clash at Pearcedale Recreational Reserve on Sunday. Sorrento will make its first finals appearance against Dromana, which is coming off the back of a 70-point victory over Hastings at Olympic Oval.

Stonecats sweat it out on windy day A FAST-finishing Frankston YCW overran fellow flag contender Mt Eliza by 13 points in an MPNFL Peninsula League match at Emil Madsen Reserve on Saturday. In what was a potential grand final preview the two top sides locked horns in a low-scoring affair in very windy conditions in the final match of the regular season. The stakes were not high on the result. Mt Eliza was locked in to finish second and the Stonecats were to finish first no matter what the outcome. Stonecats director of football Neil Reddaway was pleased with the result but believed the focus for both clubs was elsewhere. ‘‘It was a bit of a dead rubber,’’ he said. ‘‘Both teams are probably more focused on finals at the moment.’’ Mt Eliza pushed hard early but was cruelled by inaccuracy and kicked 1.8 in the first term, the conditions not helping the match as a spectacle. ‘‘It was really tough out there,’’ Reddaway said. ‘‘Even your really skilled players by foot had trouble out there.’’ The Stonecats willed themselves back into the game in the second half, Frankston ruckman Ash Eames pivotal in bringing the Stonecats back into the contest. Mt Eliza utility Justin Grant was dynamic for the Redlegs, plugging holes across the ground and his handy work guiding them to a 14-point buffer at the main break. Brad Ulms continued his rich run of form presenting hard off half-forward. The key forward was the only multiple goalkicker for the Stonecats. The defending premiers showed why they are the team to

PENINSULA LEAGUE FINALS Saturday: Qualifying Finals Seniors: Karingal v Mt Eliza, 2.15pm Reserves: Mt Eliza v Langwarrin, 12.15pm Sunday: Elimination Final Seniors: Bonbeach v Seaford, 2.15pm Reserves: Seaford v Frankston YCW, 12.15pm

beat, rising to the challenge in the final term, booting four unanswered goals to steamroll Mt Eliza. The Redlegs come up against Karingal at Frankston Park in the qualifying final on Saturday. The Bulls are the only team to defeat the much-improved Redlegs twice this season. The elimination final will be played between Seaford and Bonbeach at Eric Bell Reserve. Frankston will take a week off and await the results of the first week of finals. In other Peninsula league matches, Mornington saw out its season with a 10-point win over finalist Bonbeach. Langwarrin added to Chelsea’s second half blues, smashing them by 51 points. Karingal outclassed a brave Pines outfit, edging them out by 23 points. Seaford clinched the last spot in the final five, keeping Edithvale-Aspendale to last place on the ladder with a comfortable 28-point margin.

Dromana dishes out drubbing to thwart Hastings’ challenge DROMANA started its finals campaign with a ruthless 70-point crushing of Hastings in an MPNFL Nepean League qualifying final at Olympic Oval on Saturday. The Tigers are now set to take on premier Sorrento in the first semifinal on Saturday while Hastings will face off against (Rye/Rosebud). The Tigers applied plenty of heat on the Blues early, Hastings responding to the pressure through former Western Bulldogs forward Matthew Robbins, who was prominent early. The cracks didn’t start to show until the second term, the Tigers starting to break free, kicking seven majors to three. Dromana coach Gavin Artico credited his side’s versatility for the win. ‘‘We had 20 blokes play really solid performances,’’ he said. ‘‘We just kept grinding away and were able to get the win.’’ Dromana spread the goalkicking, key forward Steven Gaertener lead-

ing the way with five majors, influential pair Kierran Voelkl and Jerryd Savage both chipping in three. ‘‘Gaertener was solid and we had him play through the ruck a bit, as well as up forward.’’ After half-time, it was all oneway traffic. The Tigers stretched their lead out further with defenders Jay Neratzoglou and Rikki Johnston giving plenty of run off halfback. The Blues struggled to score and had only two goalkickers for the day. Robbins finished with three and Dylan Hand booted six and was best afield for the Blues. While Artico was delighted with his team’s massive win he was insistent he wouldn’t keep the same mix of players for each week of the finals.
