Surprises in council elections BY SAMANTHA ROBIN MANY familiar faces have been returned to the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, although there were a few surprises at the weekend’s elections. The formal declaration was postponed until Monday night to enable triple checking of the results. Based on provisional results, eight of the 10 incumbent councillors who re-stood will again be council representatives. But in an unexpected fallout from the newly created Briars Ward, incumbent councillor Leigh Eustace was defeated, despite having the thirdhighest count of first-preference votes, by 25-year-old Andrew Dixon, who won on candidate preferences. Cr Dixon has made history, being the youngest councillor ever elected in the shire and the first Generation Y councillor.

Speaking to the Weekly after he was informally named as one of the three successful Briars Ward councillors, he said it was ‘‘still sinking in — I am so stoked to be able to work for the community in this way, it is amazing’’. He was looking forward to working with the two female councillors on his ward, incumbents Anne Shaw and Bev Colomb. ‘‘I have a bit to learn along the way as a first-time councillor and the youngest councillor but I have no qualms about asking questions or learning the ropes. ‘‘I didn’t get here out of luck. A lot of young people have put faith in me to give them a voice and hopefully my being on council will inspire more young people to engage in politics at all levels.’’ Mr Eustace said he was disappointed with the final vote and had thought he would be reelected. ‘‘I had a lot of projects I would have liked to continue. I

Fresh blood: New shire councillor Andrew Dixon. can only hope the future council continues to support these projects,’’ he said. ‘‘We achieved a hell of a lot in four years and I don’t know what I could have done better.’’ After treating being on the council as a full-time job, Mr Eustace said he was now looking for a ‘‘real job’’. Following a Victorian Electoral Commission recommendation earlier this year, the Mornington Peninsula Shire ward boundaries were changed. The 11 single-councillor wards

COVER: Kris and Phil Helisma with daughter Sophie. See page 15. Picture: Gary Sissons

were merged to create six new wards. Three will be multicouncillor wards on the Port Phillip Bay side while the three Western Port wards will remain as single-councillor wards. In Nepean Ward, incumbent councillor Tim Rodgers was the first successful candidate followed by Hugh Fraser, putting an end to Bill Goodrem’s more than a decade on council. In Red Hill, incumbent mayor Frank Martin narrowly defeated Neale Adams on a percentage of 56 to 44. In the new ward of Seawinds, there were few surprises, with all the standing incumbent councillors re-elected. Graham Pittock was the first successful contender, followed by David Gibb and Antonella Celi. In Watson Ward, Lynn Bowden was voted in for another term with 57 per cent after the distribution of preferences, defeating Joshua Sinclair on 43 per cent.

We need more myki readers Every weekday I, along with about 200 or 300 commuters, leave my evening peak train and try to touch off my myki and go through the barriers at Frankston railway station. There are only seven barriers available which serve commuters both entering and leaving the ticketed area: three on one side, four on the other. This is clearly inadequate. Commuters, some of whom depend on connecting transport, are held up by people struggling with the erratic myki readers. On October 22, one of the gates was broken, so staff blocked it off and forced commuters to try and cut in on the other three barriers on that side of the station. I notice that none of the other stations from Caulfield to Frankston have barriers. This is why I say Frankston railway station is the worst railway station. We deserve better.

Re: Dog walkers in national parks face wider bans I love to walk my dogs on the back beach and struggle to see the damage a dog on the lead can do.

www.reviewproperty.com.au

Humans can potentially cause as much damage to the environment and habitat of sensitive animals as a dog on or off the lead. It would be disappointing to see dog owners banned from the beach completely. Perhaps a compromise could be reached in which known breeding ground beaches were off limits to dogs while other beaches remained open to dogs. Concerned (via web)

Up the creek Friends of Tanti Creek, the prize-winning volunteer sub-group of Mornington Environment Association, has announced it has had to stop work on several projects along the creek. We have no choice but to stop work on creek restoration of habitat as Melbourne Water will not cover volunteers for work, and the Mornington Peninsula Shire has still not decided if we are insured. The shire commenced investigations four months ago and still has not been able to assure us that our volunteers are covered by any insurance if they weed or plant along the sides of Tanti Creek. This restoration work has been funded by Melbourne Water since 2007.

Our work on the estuary at Mills Beach won the shire’s heritage award for restoration of a natural place this year. New projects are midway further upstream and one involved primary schoolchildren. Again, the shire will not cover children who are under 12. We have applied to funding bodies for a grant to cover the insurance, but await results. Meanwhile, we cannot risk our organisations being sued. So we quit! MEA president Jan Oliver and Friends of Tanti Creek president Judith Martin

Hospital, thank you I would like to publicly record my thanks to Frankston Hospital and Ambulance Victoria for looking after me on two occasions recently. During my long days in the busy emergency department, I had plenty of time to observe how kind, helpful and professional the staff were with their patients. I also saw the wonderful work the volunteers do. I never thought this would happen to me, but now I realise you never know what’s round the corner. Meredith Sherlock, Frankston

Wreckers move in on historic building BY SAMANTHA ROBIN ONE of Rosebud’s prominent community buildings is set to be demolished next week. The former Rosebud Community Centre has been deemed too expensive to maintain and has little use as a town facility now that the community hub has been completed in Allambi Avenue. It is the end of an era for a building that has played a fundamental part of community life in the town and has a rich history. As a toddler, I attended creche at the community centre in the early ’90s. Countless families and children on the peninsula will also have happy memories of the centre. Seeing the building torn down will be a sad moment for community house co-ordinator Lynette Maguire, who has been connected with it for 26 of its 28 years. ‘‘We had many happy times there. I have seen about three generations of children go through and it has been an integral part of the community.’’ Looking back, there are a few poignant

moments from the community house’s history. ‘‘There was one lady who did reiki at the centre and said it helped her overcome cancer. She came very regularly for reiki treatments and went into remission,’’ Mrs Maguire said. ‘‘When she eventually passed away many years later, her husband scattered her ashes there.’’ Mrs Maguire said the building had been a special place for many members of the community. ‘‘There have been lots of wonderful people come through the building, including some brilliant tutors and caring volunteers.’’ While Mrs Maguire admits it will be hard to see the building reduced to rubble, it is the beginning of a new chapter. ‘‘We were sad to go, but we had outgrown the building. It is nice to have a modern centre and a new home for all the community groups.’’ The radio and woodworkers groups will continue to operate from their buildings at the site and screening and revegetation will be provided to enhance the area. Removal of the external asbestos cladding of the building will be managed by the shire’s maintenance contractor.

Fireys seeking more volunteers THE CFA is recruiting volunteers across the Mornington Peninsula ahead of an expected busy summer fire season. Mt Eliza CFA brigade captain Richard Hume said: ‘‘My concern will be how quickly it turns to summer. There is a lot of fuel out there, there’s been a lot of growth. ‘‘It’s well and truly shaping up as a fire season with a high potential for grass fires.’’ Mt Eliza is just one the brigades keen to train new recruits before Christmas. Boneo, Dromana, Mornington, Mt Martha, Rosebud, Rye and Sorrento also want to add to their ranks. Firefighting is not only role where

volunteers can help out. Fund-raising, administration and community education are all areas where extra hands are welcome.’’ Mr Hume, who has been a CFA volunteer for almost a decade, said the benefits of serving the community included ‘‘phenomenal’’ camaraderie and support. ‘‘There’s people of all ages and walks of life. If I want to get my mower fixed, I give a fellow member a call. And I recently tiled a member’s kitchen,’’ he laughed. For information about becoming a volunteer, call brigade support officer Karen Wands on 0407 349 195. — Sandra Bull

A MOOROODUC winery has been stripped of its Royal Melbourne Wine Show trophies after an audit showed it failed to meet a key entry requirement. Jones Road Nepean Chardonnay 2011 had been named this year’s winner of the Francois De Castella Trophy for best young white wine and the Dan Murphy trophy for best chardonnay. But a wine show statement released on Saturday said Jones Road had since been disqualified ‘‘due to failing to meet the minimum requirements of entry’’. Under the rules, wines entered in these classes must have a minimum volume of 250 cases for commercial sale at the time of entry to the show. Jones Road founder and principal Rob Frewer told the Weekly that all those involved with the winery were saddened by what had been an honest mistake. ‘‘There was an oversight as we did not produce 250 dozen cases. It was our first

big show and just makes us more determined to keep producing first class wines.’’ Wine show committee chairman Phil Sexton said: ‘‘We are disappointed. Integrity and accuracy of our wine show results is of paramount importance. With more than 3000 wines from 557 exhibitors entered into our show, we have a random audit process that this year focused on the regions of Great Western, Victoria, and McLaren Vale, South Australia.’’ Mr Sexton said the onus was on the winery when entering the show to provide the correct details on each entry, including confirming the minimum bottle volumes for their wine. ‘‘Inaccurate entries, regardless of the intent of the winery, cannot be allowed and the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria took immediate action in this instance to validate the information it had received as part of the audit process and acted accordingly.’’

Community creates play area BY SAMANTHA ROBIN

Chicken Breast Fillet Skin On

RYE foreshore has a new attraction after a huge community project was completed on Sunday. The playground was built with the help of more than 700 volunteers and the financial backing of numerous local businesses. It is the finalisation of more than two years of organisation by the Rye’s Up community playground committee. The Rye Community Build has been steered by a dedicated group of people, headed by Miranda Gillespie, Amanda Crestani and Michael Wittingslow, supported by a team of like-minded people. Tireless work from volunteers built the playground from the ground up in just five days, led by a host of skilled construction experts. Ms Gillespie, one of the playground coordinators, said it was a tremendous feat. ‘‘A huge thank you to everyone who has given up their time to help build and provide sponsorship,’’ she said. ‘‘The community spirit has been amazing.’’ The $450,000 boat-style playground, developed by Leathers and Associates, in

BY LEE OPITZ STUDENTS of Mornington Special Developmental School are on a mission to make their world a better place. With the help of music specialist Karen Avery, primary-age pupils have produced and filmed their own rendition of Hands Across Australia to be entered in to the CREATivE CHANGE Generation One competition. In its third year, the competition aims to give young people the opportunity to use their voice to end the disparity between indigenous and nonindigenous Australians. “Our students decided to become involved in the Generation One project because we believe that every person in Australia should have equal opportunities to succeed, to be happy and healthy and to be active members in their community,” Ms Avery said. Participants created their own dance moves and designed T-shirts depicting native Australian animals. “Because many of the students at Mornington SDS cannot speak and require additional assistance to communicate, we went about learning the words to the competition song in our own unique way, through using visual aids

Making a change: Karen Avery, Joel and students at Mornington Special Developmental School are setting out to make the world a better place.

1000 metres, would have to be lengthened to accommodate passenger jets but he believed the proposal had some merit. ‘‘Geographically, it’s suitable. It’s flat land and Western Port would act as a natural sound barrier on one side.’’ Last year, the Victorian Employers Chamber of Commerce and Industry floated the idea of a Tooradin airport at a meeting of business leaders and government representatives in Parliament.

AN alleged robber accused of threatening to set fire to a woman in Mornington by igniting ‘‘accelerant’’ he threw in her face has been discharged of the offence. A Melbourne magistrate ruled on Friday the evidence of whether the liquid was flammable was ‘‘almost non-existent’’ and ‘‘terribly weak’’. But Adrian Mark Haggerty, 42, of Mornington, was sent for trial on other charges that included armed robbery and assaulting and injuring the woman. Wan Yi Feng, 54, told Melbourne Magistrates Court that a man splashed liquid in her face and waved an ignited lighter towards her before robbing her. Ms Feng said in a police statement that the liquid smelt strong and “something like petrol� during the attack about 10pm on January this year at the rear of a Mornington restaurant. “He waved the lighter with the flame alight in front of my face very close to me within arm’s reach,� Ms Feng said who worked at the restaurant as a kitchen hand and her husband as a cook. She said the man then punched her to her left eye, which knocked her backwards and temporarily unconscious to the ground. It was alleged Haggerty robbed her of about $650 and items including a mobile phone, a watch and a

purse and had committed other offences in an unrelated earlier matter. Asked by defence counsel Christopher Pearson about a face she identified in a photo book as the man who robbed her, and which had hair of a different length from what she described in her statement, Ms Feng said it may have been cut. “I recognised his eyes and face,� she said. Mr Pearson later revealed that she had identified his client’s face on the photo board. Detective Senior Constable Darren Paxton said in evidence that Haggerty’s fingerprints were found on a car he allegedly stole in the vicinity of the assault days before it occurred. He agreed with Mr Pearson that Haggerty became the ‘‘prime focus’’ of the investigation but denied that was to the exclusion of others. Magistrate Julian Fitz-Gerald told Haggerty that identity was clearly an issue and that the matter for the court was whether a jury could be satisfied of his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. He said there may be argument at a future trial on several issues, but he found there was enough evidence to commit Haggerty for trial on seven charges. Haggerty pleaded not guilty to all charges and was bailed to appear at a later date in the County Court. — Steve Butcher/The Age

‘Weak’ charge thrown out

BY CATHERINE WATSON THE owner of the Tooradin airfield is mystified by reports that Tooradin is in line to become Victoria’s third major airport. ‘‘It’s news to me,’’ Glen Balas told the Weekly after the Herald-Sun published a full-page report on the prospect on Friday. ‘‘No one’s contacted me about it. ‘‘They’ve been talking about an airport in the south-eastern suburbs for about 45 years. We’ll have to wait and see whether it happens.’’ On Friday, a discussion paper released by Planning Minister Matthew Guy flagged a third airport, claiming road traffic was choking Melbourne Airport at Tullamarine. Business groups have previously suggested Tyabb and South Gippsland as locations for a third airport. Melbourne’s south-eastern fringe has a population of more than one million people, who face a long and sometimes difficult drive to reach Tullamarine. Mr Balas said the Tooradin runway, currently

Against the mould ou don’t have to be able to explain the Higgs boson to recognise that Australian racing is largely bound to two factors: youth and speed. A couple of exceptions to this rule exist, for sure; the lofty prize money levels associated with the major staying races, for instance. But for the most part, thoroughbred racing — and therefore, thoroughbred breeding — in Australia is geared to favour horses that are precocious and powerful. In other words, that they show the ability to race at a young age, and that they can do so over the shorter distances that dominate race cards across the country. That makes the success enjoyed in recent seasons by Mornington trainer Pat Carey, breaking the mould set down by a speed-loving industry, all the more impressive. That all of his three group 1 victories, each with different horses, have come at or around the classic mile-and-a-half (2400 metres) distance, is nothing short of miraculous in this day and age. The first of these, with Arapaho Miss in the 2007 VRC Oaks, put Carey’s name in lights. The second, with the ill-fated Cedarberg in last year’s weight-for-age BMW Stakes, proved the first was

no fluke. The last of them, with Ethiopia in this year’s Australian Derby, had an entire nation heralding a genius. Ever-modest Carey seems to happily deflect praise, pointing to a couple of significant others for his success. One is a key client, Western Australian breeder Trevor Delroy, who bred the most recent pair of Carey’s group 1 winners, both by the uncelebrated stallion, Helenus. “A lot of the planning goes to Trevor Delroy who owns the horse,” Carey said, humbly, in the immediate aftermath of Ethiopia’s incredible Derby win. “He is inclined to hold them back and I support that strategy as it is one that suits me down to the ground and we have been thinking about this for a fair while.” One gets the feeling it is patient Pat writing the recipe, but whoever is responsible for the method, it sure works. Carey also credits his education in the caper, as a young man at the now-defunct but forever feted Epsom training complex, on his contemporary successes, recently telling Inside Racing’s Stephen Howell: “What was drummed into me by [former master, highly successful trainer] John Meagher was the importance of foundation and

Without it, it’s hard to get longevity; you want horses to stay up, be able to handle racing.” That type of foundation and conditioning is particularly evident in a horse like Ethiopia, who won the Derby at just his fourth start and become the first maiden in more than four decades to claim victory in the race. Ethiopia also won the classic having experienced no racing at all as a two year old, a temptation that is surely difficult to resist for racehorse owners and train-

ers given the embarrassment of riches on offer to juveniles in Australia. The third ingredient in the Pat Carey success story has been his move to Mornington, now the third-busiest training centre in Victoria. “One of the reasons I moved to Mornington was to take advantage of the undulations of the training centre and the proximity to beaches,” Carey explained to Inside Racing. That is a decision that is now reaping significant rewards, with Ethiopia representing the most exciting yet.

Express yourself, but follow the rules ashion and racing are intertwined, and the racecourse is one of the best places you can step outside your comfort zone, get dressed up, and express yourself. Here are a few tips to keep you fresh and glam all day while at the races: ■ Wear sunscreen under your makeup. Cover your face, neck, decolletage and hands — and remember the tops of the ears. Carry a small tube of sunscreen in your bag if you can. ■ Wear light makeup for a spring look. The races are a day event, so nightclub makeup will look too heavy. The sun will show the best of your skin, so keep it light and fresh. ■ Pick an outfit that suits your individual style and gives you confidence. It’s all about polished elegance mixed with your own personal flair. ■ Don’t be afraid to experiment. Racing fashion enables you to step out in something you wouldn’t normally wear, so have fun and try something exciting. ■ For the gentlemen, make sure shoes, belt and cufflinks match. A neatly pressed suit will ensure you look classy and fresh. Co-ordinate your tie and handkerchief, then add a hat and sunnies to complete the ensemble. ■ For spring racing, hats and headwear are a

Love beats bureaucracy An adoption program with Ethiopia that brought joy to Mornington Peninsula families has been abruptly closed by the federal government, SAMANTHA ROBIN reports. t has taken more than a decade of hard work and heartbreak, but Judy Gifford finally has her five ‘‘beautiful girls’’ under the same roof. The McCrae resident and well-known Mornington Peninsula wine maker has dedicated the past 12 years to bringing five Ethiopian sisters to Australia. Despite the many setbacks, hurdles and financial costs, she says the reunion is proof that persistence can pay off. In 2000, Ms Gifford received permission to adopt two sisters from Ethiopia. At the time, Egi and Rediet were aged seven and two. Ms Gifford soon discovered there were three other sisters in Ethiopia who desperately wanted to join their siblings in Australia. ‘‘After 18 months, I took the girls back to Ethiopia for their first visit. We went on a trip around Ethiopia and that was when the girls started to call me mum.’’ Ms Gifford always hoped she would eventually adopt all five sisters and started the adoption process in 2005 for the remaining three girls. But her efforts to reunite the sisters suffered a major setback when the Department of Human Services refused to allow her to adopt the remaining girls as they were aged over nine — the cutoff point for inter-country adoptions in Victoria — and already known to her as the prospective adoptive mother. Refusing to give up, Ms Gifford lobbied politicians and in 2007, Flinders federal MP Greg Hunt took up her cause, asking then Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews to review the decision. Despite the minister recommending she be allowed to apply to adopt the girls, authorities again refused the adoption. ‘‘They said it would be too difficult for the girls to adjust,’’ Ms Gifford says. ‘‘That was one of the worst moments of my life. It was devastating. The worst part was having to tell the girls back in Ethiopia that I wasn’t able to adopt them.’’ In mid-2009, Maurice Blackburn lawyers took on the case pro bono and it ended up at a fourday Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal hearing. “We won,” recalls Ms Gifford. But despite the legal victory, the girls had to relinquished by their birth father in Ethiopia, who wanted a better life for them. Then came another obstacle. During the protracted legal battle, the eldest girl had turned 19, a year over the maximum age that Australia and Ethiopia allow children to be adopted. In September, 2010 the paperwork was finished for the two girls who could be adopted and Ms Gifford was given permission to collect them from Ethiopia. Zen and Selam were 17 and 16 when they came to Australia. “That left the eldest girl, Brtukan, with no way

We tried but couldn’t get a student visa and so we had to start the court process again,’’ Ms Gifford said. After yet another hearing, this time before the Migration Review Tribunal in 2010, a visa was finally authorised in March this year by Immigration Minister Chris Bowen for Brtukan to come to Australia and join her four sisters. She has permanent residency and will eventually be able to apply for citizenship. The girls have settled into the Australian culture well despite having to make major adjustments including learning English. “It is such a big relief to finally have them all together,” Ms Gifford says. “This is my family. They are my beautiful girls.” But for many people on the adoption waiting list, there is no happy ending — on June 28, federal Attorney-General Nicola Roxon closed Australia’s adoption program with Ethiopia. While she refused to comment to the Weekly on the issue, Ms Roxon did send a link to a speech she made the day the program was closed. In the speech, Ms Roxon described the adoption environment in Ethiopia as unpredictable, complex and uncertain. “The government has concluded that this uncertainty, combined with obstacles to operating the program in a sustainable and ethical way into the future, means the program needs to be closed,” she said. “The government has also noted that within Ethiopia more and more domestic opportunities are becoming available for children to be adopted or provided long-term care by Ethiopian fam-

ilies.” Ms Roxon’s speech brought little comfort to the scores of Australians who had spent years waiting for the chance to adopt Ethiopian children. Many have now lost the chance to become parents. People applying for adoption are not

‘Before we had Sophie we were like a jigsaw puzzle that was missing a piece. She was that missing piece that made our jigsaw complete.’ — Phil Helisma allowed to explore other options, such as IVF, while they are on the program. As a result, some parents, who have waited almost a decade to adopt an Ethiopian child, are now considered too old to adopt. Rye couple Phil and Kris Helisma are thankful they were able to adopt their daughter Sophie, 8, before the program closed. They remember vividly the moment they first laid eyes on their little girl at an Ethiopian orphanage in 2004, when she was just seven months old. “We went to the orphanage, Koala House, to collect Sophie and they just brought her in and gave her to us,” Mrs Helisma says. It was a poignant and life-changing moment for the couple. “I am tearing up just thinking about it,” Mr Helisma says. From the first phone call when they found out

they had been allocated a child, to the moment they stepped on the plane returning from Ethiopia with the much-loved little bundle in their arms, they knew their family was finally complete. “Before we had Sophie we were like a jigsaw puzzle that was missing a piece. She was that missing piece that made our jigsaw complete,” Mr Helisma says. The Helismas believe the bureaucracy people face when choosing to adopt makes the process terribly difficult. “I think the Australian government has just put Ethiopian adoption in the too-hard basket,” Mrs Helisma says. “One of the most upsetting things for people who have been waiting is that they have been given no real explanation of why the program has been closed.” Greg Hunt said upset local families had contacted him to complain that the Ethiopian adoption program had been closed with no notice. ‘‘These families are devastated. This was the last option for many families. They had spent years of preparation in Australia ensuring everything was in order and now they feel like it has just been snatched from under them.’’ UNICEF estimates there are 3.8 million children in Ethiopia who are orphaned or live in households where there are no parents. Since adopting Sophie, the Helismas have had many trips back to Ethiopia. Mrs Helisma said seeing the orphanages there underlined the importance of the adoption program. “These children need a family.’’

Daveys Bar & Restaurant

The dimensions of nature

Daveys Bar & Restaurant

BY HAYDN GODONY

ONE NIGHT ONLY - WE WELCOME

cClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park will present two diverse new exhibitions next month. Photographer John Gollings’ Aftermath: Landscape photographs from Black Saturday documents the post-bushfire landscapes a week after the devastating fires. Gollings’ aerial photographs of the devastated forests of the Kinglake and Marysville region reveal the raw abstract patterns of the land. Aftermath includes 36 large-scale photographs. A video of Gollings discussing his work will also be shown on a loop during the exhibition. In contrast, Janet Laurence’s The Alchemical Garden of Desire installation merges past and present, juxtaposing collected botanical curios with living samples. Laurence’s art is a synthesis of nature, science and architecture and transverses between the disciplines of installation, photography, painting and sculpture. Aftermath and Garden of Desire open at McClelland Gallery, 390 McClelland Drive, Langwarrin, on Sunday, November 18, and will run until March. Details: 9789 1671.

Triple treat as owners open gardens BY SANDRA BULL

T

here’s a triple treat in Western Port next month for garden lovers. To celebrate Open Gardens Australia’s 25th anniversary season, three gorgeous gardens will be thrown open to the public on the weekend of November 10-11. ■ Akenfield Farm, at 237 Barkers Road, Main Ridge, is large, well-planned and handsome 1.2-hectare garden descending to Main Creek in a series of lawn terraces, defined and linked by walks, hedges and magnificent stone steps. In spring, the long, manicured photinia hedges are aglow with vibrant red new growth and there is a light dusting of fresh green leaves on the established oaks, maples and beeches that provide a framework for the garden. Huge drifts of bluebells complete the picture. Other features include two huge century-old camellias in glorious bloom and the vegetable garden flourishing with spring vegetables. ■ Roses are the signature bloom at Girrahween, 138 Arthurs Seat Road, Red Hill. Girrahween is a rambling country garden featuring a glorious collection of heritage roses and which boasts

Sight for sore eyes: Akenfield Farm is one of three gorgeous gardens open to the public next month. splendid views over the surrounding countryside. Rose arbours, a walk of rugosa roses, and a pond rimmed by white flowers contribute to the pretty picture. There is also a vegetable garden, and the adjoining orchard has some interesting and unusual varieties of apples

and quinces, many now in blossom. The Peninsula Home Hospice group will provide teas and lunches and plants will be for sale. ■ Point Leo Farm, 3815 Frankston–Flinders Road, Shoreham, is a beautiful 2 hectare prop-

erty with stunning views across Western Port and Phillip Island. A long, tree-lined driveway leads to a circular gravel drive, surrounded by large cypresses and deciduous trees with a young spreading oak at its centre. A cypress hedge and garden beds provide shelter for a manicured secluded lawn from which a path leads to the seaside of the house, where there is a wonderful view across the bay. An avenue of Chinese elms leads to a large and attractive landscaped dam rimmed by a boardwalk and plantings of shrubs and natives grasses. Further on, a row of callistomens, grevilleas and flowering gums leads to an orchid of olives, fruit and nut trees to a delightful potager garden. Sweeps of roses, in a variety of shades, circle the central plantings of fruit, and raised beds of vegetables and herbs. Akenfield, Girrahween and Point Leo Farm will be open between 10am-4.30pm on November 10 and 11. Entry: $8 (children under 18 admitted free). Open Gardens Australia is a not-for-profit organisation promoting the knowledge and pleasure of gardens and gardening.

What are the effects of tooth loss?

3. 4.

Dissolving away of bone structure. Loss of facial support, giving an increased appearance of age and wrinkles. Damage to the remaining teeth. Once enough teeth are missing then food choices and nutritional changes begin to cause medical problems and affect your general well being.

Heat skipper blasts ton BY BRAD McGRATH

Out of action: Frankston Peninsula Heat star Jon Holland has been ruled out for the summer. Picture: Wayne Hawkins

FRANKSTON Peninsula Heat captain Matt Chasemore made his sixth century but the Premier Cricket outfit is still in a precarious spot in a clash against Camberwell after the opening day of play. The Heat star made 115 off 190 balls but it proved to be a lone hand. Matt Gapes was the only other batsman to make double figures in a total of 192. In reply, the Magpies are 2-41, paceman Scott Boland snaring 2-15 in an impressive seven-over spell. Chasemore said the pitch at A H Butler had offered some help to the Magpies’ pacemen and Will Walker (4-42) was the chief destroyer. ‘‘We lost a couple fairly early in the piece and the wicket had a lot of life in it as it does at Frankston,’’ he said. ‘‘The only ones that really dug in

were Matty Gapes, Benbow and Ashkenazi. ‘‘When someone makes a ton you probably want 250 on the board but we got a couple of wickets and we can defend the respectable total.’’ Chasemore said his knock, which was his second century for the Heat, was one of his finest batting performances and had come at an important time after his team had slumped to 3-38. ‘‘The past three years or so have definitely been my best. I was just hitting everything in the middle.’’ Worryingly, the Heat’s frail batting line-up continued its misfiring ways and Gapes’ 21 was the only hint of resistance. The match will resume on Saturday.

summer after undergoing a shoulder reconstruction. Holland suffered the injury while playing for the Heat a fortnight ago in an innocuous incident. Chasemore said it was a tough break for the talented spinner. ‘‘It’s devastating to be honest. He’ll be out for 12 months. ‘‘For it to happen to a good bloke and a class player is tough — you take it for granted that they are happy to come back to play for their club.’’ The injury is expected to sideline the 25-year-old for the remainder of the 2012-13 season. Holland has vowed to fight back. “It’s disappointing news but I have come back from this before and I believe I still have a lot of good cricket ahead of me,” he said. “I was hoping that it may have been better news, but it wasn’t to be, so I’ll start my rehabilitation and I’ll work hard to come back.”

Trainer invokes the rain gods

Slick work: Jungle Ruler, ridden by Ben Melham, wins last year’s Peninsula Cup. Picture: Wayne Hawkins

crossover nose band will fix the recent discipline issues the five year old has had. ‘‘He has had issues with his attitude and he’s been over racing with his mouth opened.’’ Melbourne Racing Club’s general manager of commercial marketing and racing Fraser Bayne does not share White’s enthusiasm for rain and is hopeful a sunny day can bring upwards of 13,000 people to the

track. He said the Fashions on the Field was shaping up as a bumper event and Natalie Isarin was named the face of the Peninsula Cup. ‘‘The fashion side of things is coming along nice and all the sponsors are locked in, which is fantastic,’’ Bayne said. ‘‘A lot of people make it a long weekend and rather than go to the Derby they come down to the Peninsula where it’s not so busy.’’

Saints continue their push into the south-east ST Kilda Football Club chief executive Michael Nettlefold has backed the Saints to continue their push into the south-east suburbs after it was announced last week they would clash with Melbourne in a NAB Cup fixture at Casey Fields. The Demons already have strong ties to the City of Casey with their VFL affiliate Casey Scorpions playing at Casey Fields. St Kilda’s training base is at Seaford. The traditional Melbourne clubs will clash in the third round of the preseason competition on March 9. ‘‘The pre-season competition is directed by the AFL, but anything we can do in the communities that build the engagement between AFL football and the broader

community is something we support wholeheartedly,’’ Nettlefold said. “We certainly have plans to build on our engagement in communities around the Frankston and Seaford areas that have so generously supported the development of our elite training centre. ‘‘We’ll also continue to work with our heartland communities in the bayside, as we have done for many decades.” Melbourne chief executive Cameron Schwab said it was exciting to bring an official NAB Cup fixture to Casey, the club having previously played a NAB Challenge match there. ‘‘We see it as a reward for our supporters in the region, as well as ongoing recognition of the strength of the club’s

partnership with the City of Casey and a key element of our club’s growth strategy. In 2008, the club signed a 30-year agreement with the City of Casey and we’re working hard to deliver community programs and business developments that provide real benefits to the region. Clearly, playing more football in Casey is a big part of our plans and a major reason as to why we pushed hard to have a NAB Cup fixture at Casey this year.” Previous pre-season matches have attracted 10,000 people to Casey Fields with the AFL continuing its push into areas that don’t traditionally see toplevel football. The NAB Cup competition will kick off on February 15 with

triple-header matches involving Collingwood, Essendon and Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium. Round one of the NAB Cup has been split across two weekends to ensure teams play in twilight or night conditions for the late summer period. The AFL’s Simon Lethlean said that in rounds two and three, the schedule would mix matches across both regional venues and major AFL venues so that the league would continue to promote the game into areas that don’t normally host AFL football. Nettlefold said it was exciting to bring football to a grassroots area and refused to rule out playing a home game in Frankston in the future. — Brad McGrath

Cathcart in top form but Mornington goes down THE career-best form of Jarryd Cathcart was not enough to secure the four points for Mornington in round four of the Mornington Peninsula’s Table Tennis Association’s spring pennant season. Cathcart crushed Dromana’s Luke Bronsema and Shane O’Connor without dropping a game but partner Neil Hicks went down in his singles encounters and a loss in the doubles translated to a 2-3 loss for the home side. Frankston’s Sam Palmer chalked up easy victories [ 46 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

against his Langwarrin opponents, including a 4-1 thrashing of last year’s leading player Mark Flavel and a win in the doubles with veteran Jim Conlon resulted in a 3-2 victory to top of the ladder Frankston. Frankston will now face off against Mornington on Thursday night at the David Collings Lesure Centre in a match that will pit Palmer (8-0) against Mornington’s Cathcart (7-1) in a mouthwatering clash between the two top players on the Mornington Peninsula. In the remaining match, Somerville managed to take

Freereturn looking to Adelaide

BY BRAD McGRATH MORNINGTON trainer Peter White is doing his rain dance before Sunday’s Peninsula Cup with his ageing warrior Jungle Ruler gunning for his third successive victory in the $80,000 feature. White said the nine year old would only run in the 1600 metre race if the conditions mirror those that have seen the grey win the past two Peninsula Cups. ‘‘I have nominated him for it,’’ he said. ‘‘He likes the wet track and that’s what has happened the past two times that he has won it. Hopefully, it will be soft and the radar is saying there is a chance of some rain, and this time of the year it is almost traditional to have a bit of rain.’’ Since winning the Peninsula Cup on October 30 last year in his 100th start, Jungle Ruler has had 12 starts, with his latest win coming on a wet track at Warrnambool on May 3. The lively Jungle Ruler is always a favourite on course and White admits it is a thrill to have a horse run in one of the Mornington Turf Club’s biggest races of the year. ‘‘It’s pretty exciting — he’s got a lot of fans because he’s a grey and because he’s local. ‘‘He also leads, which gives you a bit of value for your dollar. He’s going fairly well — he’s won 20 races — so we have nearly got enough out of him.’’ White said he was likely to run Glacier King in the 0-68 handicap on Peninsula Cup day and hopes a

the points against a disappointing Mt Martha after Sean O’Meara secured a solid win over the experienced Phil Bolitho. Bolitho, returning to competition after state duties at the Australian veterans championships, had no answer to O’Meara’s aggressive, attacking game and went down 4-2. Bolitho’s partner Stuart Sutherland fared no better against O’Meara who has moved into third place in the leading player standings with five wins from his eight matches to date.

JASON Warren never expected Freereturn to deliver him 10 wins, let alone be in contention for the group 1 $500,000 Goodwood at Morphetville next May. The Mornington trainer took on Freereturn after five starts for Flemington trainer Mike Moroney, with the six year old now boasting 25 starts for 10 wins, five seconds and three thirds. Freereturn produced a withering final 400 metres in the $100,000 City Jeep Handicap (1000m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday to narrowly beat Paul Perry’s favourite I Get Around and Peter Healey’s Galbraith. ‘‘He did a terrific job,’’ Warren said. ‘‘He has come to us after five starts with another trainer and since then he has barely missed the placings.’’ The lightly-raced six year old will now go to the paddock with Warren now eying the Goodwood Handicap, which was won by champion mare Black Caviar this year. ‘‘He’s going to spell and then I’ll be targetting the Goodwood in Adelaide next year and that will be his main focus,’’ he said. ‘‘I didn’t think he’d win 10 races. ‘‘If Black Caviar wasn’t in the Goodwood this year you don’t know what would have won. ‘‘It’s a race that the real elite horses don’t usually run in. ‘‘I think he [Freereturn] can run a place in a race like the Goodwood.’’ Warren said stable star Bel Sprinter had endured a luckless run in the $750,000 group 1 Manikato Stakes at Moonee Valley on Saturday, finishing seventh after trailing the favourite Buffering ($2.60) for most of the 1200m journey. ‘‘He just had no luck. He was behind Buffering and Buffering never kicked.’’ Bel Sprinter will next run in the group 1 Patinack Stakes on Saturday week, when he is likely to renew acquaintances with Buffering, who has been given a clean bill of health after his poor showing in the Manikato. — Brad McGrath

Ineligible player: Mounties set to appeal BY BRAD McGRATH MT Eliza will appeal the Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association’s decision to strip it of all points after a player was found to be ineligible. The breach of rules relates to recruit Adam Mikkelsen, who played in the Mounties’ opening two rounds victories over Mt Martha and Moorooduc. The Mounties failed to apply to the MPCA for a permit for Mikkelson, who crossed to the club

from Bentleigh ANA over the off-season. MPCA vice-president and pennant committee chairman Adam Jones said the decision had been made to take the harsh action after launching an investigation. ‘‘What happened is that he was a first-time player to the association,’’ he said. ‘‘Any new player is required to have a permit from the MPCA and they didn’t have a permit. ‘‘It’s not what we like to do but for transparency in these matter they have to abide by the

rules just like any other club and they have the right to appeal.’’ He said Mt Martha and Moorooduc would be awarded the points for the games against Mt Eliza. The ruling ruins a dream start to the Mounties’ return to the Provincial division after a 15-year absence. The club is expected to lodge an appeal within the two-week window. Various Mounties’ officials were reached but did not want to comment on the decision.

They confirmed Mikkelsen’s permit was now approved and he was eligible to play. The Mounties face a tough ask in the second week of their clash against Peninsula Old Boys after being restricted to 9-166 from their 75 overs. ■ The MPCA is desperately seeking volunteers for Country Week. The annual tourament runs from February 18-22. For more information visit the MPCA website. — Brad McGrath

Moorooduc sets imposing target for Sorrento MOOROODUC has set a hefty task for Sorrento with an impressive first innings of 235 in its MPCA Provincial Shield match on Saturday. Sorrento had Moorooduc all out after 63 overs but the damage was already done with some impressive batting putting them in a position of strength. Moorooduc all-rounder Myles Cordeux led the way with 68, being the last wicket to fall. Opener Luke Sheenan and Stuart Plunkett formed an impressive partnership, giving Moorooduc plenty of momentum at the crease. Sheenan and Plunkett both lost their wickets to Sorrento bowling ace Anthony Blackwell, who was impressive with 5-58 off his 20 overs. Sorrento faced 11 overs before stumps were drawn, getting off to a fairly rocky start. It lost opener Jedd Falck for just four with Nick Jewell falling on the second-last ball of the day for 25. With the pressure now squarely placed on Sorrento, coach Nick Davern is relishing the challenge that has been laid down to his team. ‘‘If we want to play finals these are the totals we have to chase down,’’ Davern told the Weekly. In other Provincial Shield matches, Long Island completed its first innings in style with 229 against Heatherhill, Justin Bridgeman cracking 102. Mt Martha has secured first-innings points against Ballam Park. Mt Martha will be chasing quick runs in an attempt for an outright victory with an overall lead of three heading into day two. Rye was poised to take victory after bowling Mornington out for 142, Rhys Wynne taking 4-47.

Tailenders help save the day for Pearcedale PEARCEDALE has set itself a defendable 197 going into day two of play against Carrum Downs in an MPCA Sub-District Shield match on Saturday. After some mixed results from the top-end batsmen, Pearcedale was able to resurrect its innings through tailenders Brad Trotter (33) and Lachlan Cross (49). Despite winning the toss, Carrum elected to bowl first. Opener Warren TeGiffel got Pearcedale off to a good start, surviving a number of fierce deliveries before falling for 29. Pearcedale struggled without a steady partnership

in the middle order. Captain Kaine Smith got Pearcedale back on track with 27, losing his wicket to Ashley Worker before Trotter and Cross stepped in. ‘‘The openers really struggled,’’ Smith said. ‘‘The ball was moving around a fair bit but that sorted itself out after about 15 overs.’’ Steven Worker kept Pearcedale on its toes, snaring 2-29 with his 13-over spell, including five maidens. Carrum Downs kept a fast rotation with its attack, cycling its bowlers in and out with three-to-four-over stints to keep Pearcedale guessing. Smith is very optimistic that his side will be able to

defend its tally, putting full faith in Pearcedale’s attack. ‘‘I’ll always back our bowlers in whatever total we get. I think that’s our real strength,’’ Smith said. In other Sub-District Shield matches, French Island is on the verge of causing a massive upset, bowling Red Hill all out for just 94. Rosebud has given Skye plenty to think about after putting 218 on the board. Balnarring has come out firing in its first innings with an imposing 314, leaving Dromana to pull off a huge batting performance. — Morgan Cole

Langwarrin batsmen get cracking LANGWARRIN is poised to grab its third straight win after notching up 319 in its first innings against Flinders in their MPCA District Shield match at B A Cairns Reserve on Saturday. After a effort with the willow against Main Ridge last round, Langwarrin made all the right moves at the crease with Daniel Weare making a fine century. Weare was eventually dismissed by Tom Clements, one of his four scalps. Andrew Johnson continued his impressive run of form, making 70 before being dismissed by Clements. Langwarrin got off to slow start with opener Simon McEvoy falling for just five , caught off a Dwayne Field delivery. After the early loss of McEvoy Langwarrin’s fortunes quickly changed with captain Mark Cooper and Weare setting the tone with a solid partnership. After Flinders dislodged Langwarrin’s top order they found even more resistance in the lower end with all-rounder Peter Edwards hitting out. Clements was by far Flinders’ best bowler with 4-62. In other District Shield matches, Baden Powell had Hastings all out for 144, Anjula Perera taking four wickets. Delacombe Park amassed 259 against Frankston YCW to be in the box seat for victory. Main Ridge smashed 271 against Pines with half-centuries by Paul Mereszo and Gareth Wyatt. Carrum is set to overrun Seaford after cleaning them up for 125. Somerville is well on top against Boneo after Keith Burdett struck 129, in their total of 317. — Morgan Cole
