Shire probe into wine centre an ongoing battle with the council and nearby residents ever since. In 2009, Liquor Licensing Victoria knocked back an application for a general liquor licence for the facility. Original plans included a two-storey building to accommodate an epicurean centre with a distillery, cheese shop, culinary education centre, tavern, coffee shop and bakery as well as 23 serviced apartments to replace the existing retail centre near the corner of Arthurs Seat and Shoreham roads. The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal approved the development in July 2008 after Mr Alesci took his proposal there following the shire’s failure to make a determination within 60 days of receiving the planning application.

THE development of a regional wine centre in Red Hill has come to a standstill as the Mornington Peninsula Shire investigates planning permit concerns with the development. The Epicurean Centre claims on its website to be ‘opening soon’, but the shire council has already refused a retrospective planning application for the retention of an existing gas tank and wall at the site. The shire’s statutory building and planning compliance teams are investigating the development. Plans for the development of the former Centrepoint shopping centre were put forward in 2008 and developer Joseph Alesci has faced

Mayor and Red Hill Ward councillor Frank Martin said residents had expressed concern over the centre. ‘‘Residents feel that what has been happening is not in the spirit of what was intended,’’ he said. ‘‘The community are dead against the unfolding of several events but as it is in the throes of legal processes it will take some time to be resolved. ‘‘The amenity of the area is very important to the people of Red Hill and we want to ensure it stays that way.’’ He said developments at the centre were being closely monitored. Contacted by the Weekly, Mr Alesci said he wasn’t buying into ‘‘this nut-breaking exercise’’ and declined to comment further.

Re: Parking woes ‘to get worse’ Not often does an opportunity arise to improve and grow a residential aged-care facility that is not only in an extremely high area of need, but one that is close to the physical heart of a town. It is widely known there is an ageing community on the Mornington Peninsula. Benetas Corowa Court, our residential aged-care facility on the corner of Esplanade and Townsend Lane, Mornington, is home to 60 older people, and we have a wait list. At a time when some aged-care providers are moving away from residential care due to the high cost of running facilities and lack of funding, Benetas is investing millions to redevelop the site in direct response to demand and the growing needs of older people in the local community. The redevelopment will support both the community through additional services and the local economy through providing more jobs. As a not for profit aged-care provider, Benetas has been a part of the Mornington community since 1966 — we have supported and participated in the community for almost 50 years, and see that continuing well into the future. We recognise that staff and families park in Townsend Lane, with the number of cars in the street changing at various

times with the daily activities of the facility. Yet we strongly believe that the redevelopment of the site and current car park will improve parking for the area. From the day the doors open, at any one time, an additional 60 older peninsula residents will have a new home; a place they can feel safe and cared for. Their families will have peace of mind that their loved one is being supported and well looked after. And that is one of the most important issues of all. Chris Karagiannis, acting CEO, Benetas

Re: Questions for your Mornington Peninsula Shire representatives Great to hear Cr [Leigh] Eustace is going to run in the next election. He has been fantastic for Mt Eliza and has got things done. Our previous councillors have been nowhere as effective. Again, this aquatic centre is the elephant in the room. Interestingly, Cr [David] Gibb wants to finish it. Isn’t that what all councillors want? Loved the comment — at any cost — which sums it up completely. Harry D (via web)

Putting back If you belong to a service club, social, sports or church organisation or any other group where you require a free public speaker, then I am your man and it will cost you nothing. Since my retirement, I have become a volunteer free public speaker for DonateLife Victoria, which raises awareness and educates the community on organ and tissue donation. Being a transplant recipient and a member of a donor family, I find being a public speaker for DonateLife provides me with the opportunity to contributing back to the community. Twanny Farrugia twannypac@gmail.com or 0412 107 734

Can’t wait to read what the other councillors have to say. I’d have to agree with Harry and question why Cr Eustace is not our mayor. He is certainly the most proactive on the council. The deep division in the council needs to change and it appears only an election will break this voting block. Things need to change at the council table to see that matters like the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre are not rammed through with dodgy and inadequate information and, more importantly, funding. Who in the community is going to give money for the aquatic centre? Mike (via web)

Residents protest over high tipping fees BY LEE OPITZ and SAMANTHA ROBIN RESIDENTS have raised concerns over escalating tip fees, presenting a petition of more than 1700 signatures to Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. In response to the petition tabled at the council meeting on July 23, a statement from shire officers said higher fees for commercial operators and non-residents was designed to reduce the

impact of increasing cost associated with waste disposal. The petition was referred to officers for a report. Investigations by the Weekly have revealed that residents in other municipalities are paying substantially lower fees for their waste disposal. A survey of transfer stations closest to Mornington showed the shire charged the highest fees for dumping a trailer load of hard waste. For a normal 1.8 metre x 1.2 metre (6ft x 4ft standard)

trailer, Mornington Peninsula Shire charges residents $70 for a flat load of hard rubbish, rising to $100 for non-residents. Tips in the Dandenong and Kingston council areas compared far more favourably, with Clayton South refuse station charging $45 for a flat load of hard rubbish, Hampton Park $53 and Parkdale $55. None of these sites charge a higher rate for non-residents. Frankston Council has no operating transfer

station after its Frankston station closed in 2010 due to the construction of the Peninsula Link freeway. Frankston Council’s acting CEO Jane Homewood said negotiations were under way with the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council about the possibility of subsidising Frankston ratepayers’ use of shire sites in the short term. The shire had been hoping to resolve the issue in time to include any revenue from Frankston Council in its now adopted 2012-13 budget.

In the final part of our series, SAMANTHA ROBIN posed the following questions to these councillors: Are you nominating for the October 27 elections? What are the highlights of wins you have achieved so far on the council? What key issues would you like to address if re-elected?

Antonella Celi (Truemans Ward) I am definitely re-standing and hope to continue the work I have been doing during my two years on the council. With continued advocacy, I have initiated several projects, some of which include the early years learning centre, the Rosebud West Community Hub and the beautification of Rosebud West with new benches, trees and rubbish bins. There is still a lot of work left to do as there needs to be greater protection of the wetlands and more footpaths. I am really passionate about the Tootgarook wetlands which contain some important flora and fauna, about the growing concern of development in or surrounding them, and about the potential of the freeway extension. One of the constant things that requires vigilance is the urban growth boundary and green wedge; we want to support the agricultural industry and keep that fine balance to support farmers. It is also important for us to accommodate for the ageing population on the peninsula. I would also love to see the aquatic centre built at the location which has been nominated and to see Rosebud revitalised through urban design as an activities centre.

Tim Rodgers (Nepean Ward) I am standing again. During my seven years on the council I have been able to help strengthen the Nepean Ward community. One of the biggest achievements has been the management plan for Police Point. We are now at a stage where Point Nepean is getting work done on infrastructure. I am looking forward to the new ward structure as I think it will be more democratic. I think that as a council we don’t value the community enough and need to pay more attention to what community members have to say. If I am reelected, I would like to continue to implement the Sorrento streetscape scheme and see the Bay Trail completed, to allow people to walk from Portsea to Melbourne along the beach front. I want to continue the good work we are doing on footpaths. I would also like to see this ridiculous situation of the pool on the foreshore resolved. We have made an absolute shambles of the green wedge and that is why we are in trouble. We need to get serious about protecting the green wedge. I would like to see the historical Sorrento Post Office building preserved and used for community purposes.

Hospital plan ‘causes stress’ A ‘NEW’ initiative for Rosebud and Frankston hospitals is putting nursing staff under unacceptable strain and compromising patient care, the Australian Nursing Federation says. Priority Zero, a joint Ambulance Victoria and Frankston Hospital initiative, was launched in June and will soon start at Rosebud Hospital in an effort to free up ambulances for urgent cases and improve response times. A document outlining the protocol, seen by the Weekly, states that if a priority zero [life-threatening case] occurs in the Frankston catchment area and the closest ambulance is at either hospital with a patient, the patient should be immediately offloaded. ‘‘[The] crew will liaise with the emergency department floor manager, provide handover and transfer patient to the hospital trolley dedicated to the initiative. The floor manager will then assume responsibility for the patient,’’ it stated. Peninsula Health spokesman John Jukes said the process was not new and had been in practice at all Victorian hospitals. ‘‘Priority Zero is simply a document outlining a process that has

always occurred, but on an ad hoc basis. This sets down a formal procedure which will be rolled out to all other hospitals.’’ Ambulance Victoria regional manager metro east Cath Anderson said Priority Zero calls were categorised as the most urgent life-threatening cases, including cardiac arrest and severe breathing problems. ‘‘This means that we will divert or dispatch the closest available ambulance. We are proactively working with hospitals to ensure that we can reach the sickest patients first.’’ Australian Nursing Federation (Victorian branch) secretary Lisa Fitzpatrick said that while the ANF understood the increasing demand being placed on Frankston Hospital’s emergency department, Priority Zero was not the answer. ‘‘The process for an ambulance officer to hand over a patient to the floor manager — who already has the critical responsibility of ensuring the emergency department is running smoothly — is not in the best interest of the patient or the nurses,’’ she said. — Lee Opitz

Abbott’s quick field trip BY SAMANTHA ROBIN

Taxing times: Tony Abbott and Bruce Billson slam the federal government’s carbon tax. Picture: Daryl Gordon

FEDERAL Opposition Leader Tony Abbott made a flying visit to Mornington last Wednesday in a stop on the apparent pre-election campaign trail. It was a short-lived trip, just long enough for Mr Abbott to tour boat building business Hart Marine and field a handful of questions from an expectant media throng. The main aim behind his visit was to reiterate that the carbon and mining taxes would be abolished under a coalition government. ‘‘The carbon tax and the mining tax will act like a wrecking balls through the Australian economy,’’ he said. The ‘‘bad taxes’’ would hurt Australians’ cost of living and job security and Treasurer Wayne Swan’s policies attacked middle Australian families, Mr Abbott said. Malcolm Hart of Hart Marine said the pleasure boat market had all but diminished and he had very little scope to export overseas due to the strength of the Australian dollar and increased pressures of the carbon tax. ‘‘I am worried about the manufacturing industry full stop,’’ he said. ‘‘We need fairer taxes across the board, not where just one industry is being slugged with the tax.’’ Dunkley federal MP and opposition spokesman for small business Bruce Billson said the damaging effects of the carbon tax would continue to escalate — ‘‘every day after the tax was introduced it will get worse’’.

Family day care has been providing quality early childhood education and care for more than 30 years and there are almost 14,000 family day care educators around Australia who care for about 112,000 children. It is considered the most affordable childcare option for families, with an average daily cost of $57, compared to long day care which has an average daily cost of $80. Carers are required to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;childproof â&#x20AC;&#x2122; their

ANN Zani loves children and it appears the feeling is mutual â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she has been recognised as Family Day Care Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s educator of the year for the Mornington Peninsula. Ms Zani has provided childcare in her Balnarring home for 21 years, 17 as a one of 40 family day care educators with support from Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. The families of her current four charges think sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty special, so much so they nominated her for the award. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It was lovely that they took the time to nominate me and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to know that I am appreciated,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. Family day care providers look after up to seven children in a private residence, under strict guidelines and with support from organisations such as local councils. Ms Zani started caring for other children when her own two were still small. Since then, she has cared for more than 80. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I was only planning to do it until my children went to school, but it just snowballed and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing it ever since. I really enjoy it and working for the council I have back-up and security and the camaraderie of other educators.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

$1000 fine for ‘ruining’ holiday Winter warmer: Ann Haynes, Juanita Aikken and Judy Doolan celebrate Christmas in July with a host of other lunchers at the Community Hub in Rosebud. Picture: Daryl Gordon

Christmas lunch comes early at hub MORE than 30 people have feasted on traditional Christmas delicacies at the Community Hub in Rosebud. The Christmas in July function was a special treat for regular lunchers and visitors. The hub hosts a lunch every Wednesday for all community members. Manager Judy Doolan said it was a great opportunity for people to meet

other members of the community while enjoying a home-cooked lunch. ‘‘Many members of the community are socially isolated and may not have a strong support network of friends and family nearby. We share lunch and at the end we always share a joke or a story or have some sort of entertainment.’’ Ms Doolan encouraged anyone to

attend the hub and check it out. ‘‘If you haven’t got someone to have a coffee with, come in and have a coffee with us,’’ she said. Hot lunches are put on every Wednesday from noon at the Community Hub, 11a Allambi Avenue, Rosebud West, behind Eastbourne Primary School. Cost is $5. For more information, call 5982 2204. — Samantha Robin

BY SANDRA BULL THE owner of the Blairgowrie Caravan Park has been fined $1000 after a tribunal found he had ruined a family’s holiday. James Galea of Reservoir took caravan park owner Ross Hartnett to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal in a dispute over a holiday booking. Mr Galea told the tribunal that after initially being told a site was available, Mr Hartnett refused the booking, saying he was concerned Mr Galea’s two sons, aged 18 and 21, could cause trouble if left unsupervised. Mr Hartnett denied a booking had been made or that discrimination was involved, saying he had many young people stay in the park. In her ruling last month, VCAT member Anna Dea found Mr Galea had been discriminated against under

‘That amount is significant enough for Mr Hartnett and the broader community to appreciate the seriousness of discrimination of this kind.’ — Anna Dea the Equal Opportunity Act’s parental status provisions and ordered Mr Hartnett to pay him $1000 plus $90 for a wasted trip to Blairgowrie in which he was supposed to finalise the booking. ‘‘That amount is significant enough for Mr Hartnett and the broader community to appreciate the seriousness of discrimination of this kind,’’ Ms Dea said.

Registrations close at 5pm Monday, 27th August 2012. Terms and conditions apply. Entrants must live on the Mornington Peninsula. Visit mrc.net.au for details.

Appeal on antiques

presents

BUMPS, BUBS & MUMS

BY SAMANTHA ROBIN POLICE are appealing to sellers associated with Tyabb Packing House Antiques to come forward to claim 12 items they may be missing. The call comes after a 61-year-old woman was given a suspended sentence earlier this year at Frankston Magistrates Court after being convicted of stealing more than $10,000 worth of antiques from the antiques house. The Cranbourne woman stole more than 22 items over an 18-month period, beginning in 2009. Items varied from a glass dinner set to pricey porcelain figurines. Police worked closely with an antique packing house in Melbourne where the woman had been selling many of the items. Senior Constable Gabi Hawkins of Hastings police said the woman had discerning taste, stealing only quality antiques, including two Epergnes dining centre pieces worth $3000 each. ‘‘She also kept some items at her home for decoration, which were also seized by police.’’ Many of the thefts had not been reported to police. ‘‘It is a good outcome that the

Recovered items: Gabi Hawkins with some of the stolen antiques. Picture: Daryl Gordon woman was caught but we might have been able to catch her earlier if we had been informed of the thefts.’’ The woman was caught on CCTV footage at Tyabb Packing House Antiques. ‘‘CCTV cameras are a great tool for any shop owner and I would strongly encourage shop owners to install them,’’ Senior Constable Hawkins said. Police would retain the items for a month before auctioning them off. For more information, call Senior Constable Hawkins at Hastings police station on 5970 7800.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the big picture for graphics firm BY SANDRA BULL Mindless vandalism: This rubbish bin near the Barkly Street bus stop was set alight.

Bus patrons blamed over â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;messâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; MORNINGTON shopkeepers are continuing to deal with vandalism in Barkly Street, which they claim is directly linked to people using the bus stop. Nonie Harvey was forced to extinguish a blaze outside her shop after a rubbish bin was set on fire. She said she was sick and tired of the vandalism, rubbish and general appearance of the area caused by people using the buses. Ms Harvey said she had lost some customers because they were too scared to enter the shopfront.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have written several letters to the council about the matter. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It has been this way since the bus stop was moved five or six years ago. We never had these sorts of problems before the bus stop was there. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It is an ongoing battle for shopkeepers.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ms Harvey said it was further evidence against building a major bus interchange in Barkly Street. A report on the interchange that was circulated at a January 30 council meeting was deferred and is yet to come back to the council. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Samantha Robin

GREATER confidence and credibility have been extra â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;prizesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for the winner of the young entrepreneur category of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Excellence in Business awards. Lachlan Coates, now 20, is urging other young business owners to enter this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awards, run jointly by the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire councils. As much of Mr Coatesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work is done on his computer, his Burst Graphics clients come from across Melbourne and even interstate. Mr Coates said he used the $1000 cash prize to pay for advertising material to promote his Frankston-based firm, which offers promotional services ranging from graphic and web design to signage. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;But the other important things the award gave me were extra credibility and confidence, which I used to get out there and promote the business even more,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Winning an award like that backed up my credibility by showing potential clients that we

Bursting out: 2011 Excellence in Business award category winner Lachlan Coates. Picture: Gary Sissons offered fantastic products and services and good customer service. One of the first things I did was to was to order new business cards with the award logo on them.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Coates advised other young entrepreneurs to to take the plunge and enter. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A lot of people are a little to nervous to go for it. But I would say the only way to win is to go for it. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It really opens a lot of doors for networking.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

FEATURESTORY

The team that sniffs Dog squad handlers and their four-legged crime-fighting partners both love the thrill of the chase, SANDRA BULL reports. police dog’s bark is worse than its bite. Mostly. Dog squad trainer Senior Constable Gary Murray says it’s a misconception that police want angry, aggressive hounds straining on the leash. ‘‘People think we want dogs to be aggressive and ready to bite. But we want our dogs to have a good temperament and nature and be able to interact with the community.’’ But as experienced criminals know, when a police dog is sniffing around it’s better to come out of hiding than run away. ‘‘Biting is not common, but it happens. It has to be justified, just as when a police member uses a baton or [capsicum] spray. Dogs will only bite if someone is struggling or fleeing or assaulting the dog or its handler,’’ Senior Constable Murray says at the squad’s Attwood base in Melbourne’s west. There is a strong sense of history at the base. Office walls are plastered with photographs of past and present handlers and their dogs, some dating back to the mid-1970s when the squad began. Members of the tightly knit team also have their own catchphrases. Offenders are often referred to as ‘‘crooks’’, play items used to reward dogs are ‘‘articles’’ and successful apprehensions are ‘‘catches’’. A dog’s reward for a catch is never food — they are delighted with a bit of playtime with a ball or old shoe and the sheer satisfaction of catching their ‘prey’. The squad also has outposts at police stations in Springvale, Glen Waverley, Footscray and Northcote. Its 45 members, and their canine partners, can be sent anywhere in Victoria, whether it’s to catch a ‘‘crook’’, track down a missing child or lost senior citizen or help control an unruly crowd. The squad was responsible for more than 1500 arrests in 2011 and is on target to achieve similar results this year. Leading Senior Constable Ryan Porter, 36, and his German shepherd Vice, are based at Springvale, which means they are more likely to be called on for jobs in the region spanning from St Kilda to Dandenong, Pakenham, Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula. Vice is Leading Senior Constable Porter’s second dog in his four years in the dog squad. He is typical of handlers who, like their canine companions, would rather be jumping fences than ploughing through paperwork. ‘‘I originally thought I wanted to become a detective, but once I did that I found it meant a lot of time behind the desk; that didn’t suit my nature. The police force gives you the opportunity for lots of different roles,’’ he says. ‘‘The dog squad isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but for me it’s a perfect fit. I love it.’’ The bond between handlers and their dogs becomes evident when he reminisces about his

On the beat: One of the dog squad’s canine crime fighters in action. Picture: Victoria Police first police dog, Zol, who was at his side for about three years before being euthanised in December after an immune disease attacked his spine. ‘‘It was very sad. He had a really good tracking ability. It was a terrible Christmas.’’ The bond is unsurprising as the dogs are never far from their handlers. They live at the family home in a purpose-built kennel and travel in ‘doggy div vans’, where they are safely restrained in the back. If a dog is retired or injured, handlers have to go through an intensive training process with their replacement to ensure they are a good match and learn to pick up each other’s cues. ‘‘Zol was a very big, strong placid dog, a bit like a big bear, and I like to think he tried to please me by doing what I asked. He was quite happy to do his job and quite happy to relax when we were at home,’’ Leading Senior Constable Porter says. ‘‘Vice is like a 16-year-old boy — he’s certainly a lot younger, very active and on a higher gear.’’ The pair are working well together, with Vice recently giving him an early ‘‘heads up’’ to a man wielding a metal pole. ‘‘He wouldn’t put the pole down and kept coming at me pretty aggressively so I let Vice go and he bit him. The man dropped the pole but kept punching and hitting at Vice. ‘‘But generally, while people may not have any issues in trying to fight police members, the presence of a dog is usually enough to de-escalate situations. Handlers and their dogs need this seamless communication, especially as they often search at

Following his nose: Vice in tracking mode. night and need to dodge obstacles ranging from garden stakes to tree branches. ‘‘Every dog is different with their body language. When Vice is tracking and knows he is getting close to whatever we’re searching for, the tail comes up and he is very focused. It’s a real team effort. The dogs have abilities well beyond our own, but they can only do so much. They’re telling me one thing and I have to interpret it.’’ Officer in charge of the dog squad, Senior Sergeant Shaun McGovern, says one of the strongest attributes of a police dog is its ability to track human scent. ‘‘A great example was in Hoppers Crossing in June where an offender, wanted in relation to dumping a stolen car around 2am, was tracked by police dog Kaos some 20 minutes later,’’ Senior Sergeant McGovern said.

Picture: Gary Sissons

‘‘The track, approximately three kilometres long, led the handler along bike tracks, railway lines and across both lanes of the Princes Freeway. It continued through fences, across paddocks, through factory yards to where the offender was finally located.’’ Playful German shepherd pups at Attwood are months away from being fully fledged general duties police dogs — if they make the cut. Tumbling over each other and mouthing at toys, a trio of pups stick their heads a little under a wire fence and start pulling out grass as Senior Constable Murray looks on approvingly. These are the full-on, high-energy hounds that have the best chance of making the grade. Timid couch potatoes are soon weeded out as potential crime fighters. ‘‘We want the X factor . . . the drive to want to

work. It’s like some people are naturally lazy or workaholics. We want the dogs to be happy to work and train hard.’’ The furry raw recruits are already in training, although they don’t know it. A tape in the background blares out a cacophony of sounds: fireworks, gunshots, thunder, a screaming baby, all things which could disconcert a dog if it hears them for the first time out on a job. Plastic bags attached to fences serve the same purpose of desensitising the dogs to unexpected sights and sounds, with Senior Constable Murray keen to add a garden gnome to the array. Field trips to hear the police helicopter and see the mounted branch in action are also part of the training. Senior Constable Murray says while squad members have an affinity for dogs, die-hard ‘dog lovers’ aren’t wanted. ‘‘With us, dogs are not a commodity but they are a tool and we have to utilise them in the best possible way for Victoria Police. A dog is a tool of my trade. It sounds harsh but you make sure you have an end product that you can use and they’re a very clever tool.’’ Leading Senior Constable Ryan Porter will keep Vice at home when the dog retires at the end of his working life, a gesture of respect that most handlers make. A strong, alert animal, with an impressive bark, Vice is devoted to his handler and there’s plenty of playful licks on the face when the pair pose for the Weekly. But as with all police dogs,

Picture: Victoria Police

anyone apart from the handler who feels tempted to give them a friendly pat risks being bitten. While not going so far as attributing dogs with the capacity to love their handlers, Leading Senior Constable Porter says an undeniable bond exists. ‘‘I think that bond really does contribute to dogs and their handlers being persistent. There’s only so much a dog is going to do for a tennis ball or a football. To keep driving and going, there’s got to be something more. ‘‘And I would say handlers are very alike. We’re a tightly knit little group and a lot of that would come from sharing the same qualities. We like an active lifestyle and the thrill of the chase. ‘‘I think a lot of the time when we’re at a job, it’s come down to me and the dog and there’s no other real means of finding this person. So you definitely have the adrenaline of chasing and then it’s also a mind game — you’re reading the dog and other signs of things as you go, trying to piece it all together. It definitely becomes a challenge. ‘‘You’re out in the cold and wet. There are long hours — it’s nothing to do 10 kilometres in a night, dodging obstacles and carrying all your equipment. So you really have to love what you do.’’ Leading Senior Constable Porter is happy to stay on the beat with a four-legged partner for the rest of his policing career. ‘‘As long as I can keep jumping fences,’’ he says with a laugh.

HEROIC TALES Police dogs also put their life on the line 2009: German shepherd Salem recovered after being bashed with a baseball bat by three youths caught painting graffiti at the Newport railway yards. 2005: Digger died from massive internal injuries after being accidently hit by car while pursuing four armed robbers in Syndal. 1998: Butch survived after being stabbed in the throat after protecting his handler from an offender armed with two knives in Williamstown. 1978: Aaron was searching for an offender on a Brunswick roof when he lost his balance and plunged 20 metres to his death.

CAREERS

A lifetime’s learning aids out miners This science ‘geek’ has followed numerous career paths, writes Rebecca Miller s a child, Dennis Franklin dreamed of being a marine biologist or a lawyer. He says he’s always been a science geek with a heightened sense of justice. Achieving big things was always on his professional agenda. ‘‘I’ve had a strange career pathway,’’ Mr Franklin, of Gisborne, says. ‘‘I started in the navy then after 10 years went back to university to study a doctorate in geology. After that I worked in oil and gas exploration and later in the information technology industry. ‘‘Now I’m a mining consultant. I help mining companies — mostly overseas, South African gold miners and Canadian miners — adopt new technology that will make their operations more effect-

A

ive.’’ Mr Franklin says his career highlights, although not linked to mining, have shaped the person he is today and expanded his knowledge. ‘‘I did scientific research in Antarctica. My seven-month stint at Davis Station working in the field was a life-changing experience. ‘‘It’s impossible not to be affected by Antarctica with its thousand shades of blue, its silence and, in those days, lack of digital distractions. It was easy to live in the moment and appreciate the sublime. ‘‘Mostly, my work involves finding and chasing leads for new customers and jobs, but when I’m on an assignment it’s pretty full-on. I run workshops, write reports and

read a lot about new developments in the mining sector.’’ He says there are many ‘good bits’ to his career. ‘‘It’s a great feeling to be able to tell a customer how much money they can save by doing things differently.’’ His skills also stretch to musical talents, something he enjoys in his spare time. ‘‘I’m teaching myself to play the ukulele; it’s great fun to have some music in your life. I also enjoy pottering in my vegetable garden, and I keep some chickens.’’ The next step in his career involves another new challenge unrelated to geology or mining. ‘‘I’m hoping to get elected to the Macedon Ranges Shire Council in October so I can give more back to the community.’’

MOTORING ●

Supercar — the next generation Ewan Kennedy and Derek Ogden road test the Lexus GS 350 F Sport aving driven the Lexus LFA supercar at Sandown Raceway last year, we were well aware of the stunning capabilities of this aristocratic Japanese automobile manufacturer. Noted initially for superbly built but somewhat bland vehicles, Lexus has shown its LFA to be the harbinger of a whole range of raw-edged premium product. Now comes the car that’s the next step in the Lexus line-up, the GS 350. Our car was an F Sport, which, at $107,497, falls in the middle of the new GS 350 range. It’s easy to spot the Lexus LFA supercar DNA in the GS 350 F Sport jigsaw — large mesh side grilles, with central upper and lower grille helping to gulp cooling air into the engine compartment. That, and the daytime running lights, present an aggressive face to oncoming traffic. Air flow is put to work in other ways with ‘aerodynamic damping’, in which air is brought closer to the body to enhance handling. A clever design of rear spoiler, narrow panel gaps and minimal protrusions add to aerodynamic efficiency.

H

The sporty look is finished off by dark-coloured 10-spoke, 19-inch alloy wheels incorporating black Lexus ‘L’ logo centres. The Lexus F Sport is a four-door, five-seat sedan/coupe, whose interior includes matching door and seat upholstery. While occupants settle into 20-way electrically adjustable front bucket seats, the driver can take advantage of an LFA-inspired dimpled steering wheel and gear knob, and aluminium pedals and dashboard trim. The 3.5-litre engine of the GS 350 produces 27 per cent more power and 22 per cent more torque than the previous Lexus GS 300, plus improved fuel economy and lower carbon dioxide emissions. The GS 350 is capable of reaching 100km/h from rest in 6.0 seconds on the way to a top speed of 235km/h. Expect F Sport fuel consumption to drop under eight litres per 100 kilometres cruising on the open road. But in built-up areas the V6 can take care of close to double that volume of fuel.

Son of supercar: Lexus GS 350 F Sport, with LFA DNA.

Stingrays stay in line for flag

Cathcart turns table on Dromana pairing

BY BRAD McGRATH

MORNINGTON’S Jarryd Cathcart returned to top form in round four of the MPTTA’s A1 winter pennant competition with comprehensive victories against the respected Dromana pairing Stuart Sutherland and Luke Bronsema. A win in the doubles rubber with partner Craig Entwistle resulted in a 3-2 victory and lifted Mornington to fourth on the ladder. Langwarrin’s Mark Flavel has jumped two games clear on the leading player standings after securing singles wins in his side’s 4-1 win against Frankston. After a hard-fought 4-3 victory against Frankston’s Paul Davies, Flavel lined up against Sam Palmer and gave the club’s singles champion a table tennis lesson on the way to a 4-0 victory. Mt Martha has moved two games clear at the top of the ladder after a 3-2 win against Somerville. Dromana’s Sean O’Meara secured wins against Phil Bolitho and Greig Whitelaw, but the Mt Martha pair turned the tables on O’Meara’s partner Dan Bainbridge and a nail biting 11-9 win in the deciding fifth game of the doubles encounter was enough to get Mt Martha over the line and move two games clear at the top of the A1 ladder. Langwarrin remains undefeated and on top of A2, thanks to the continued good form of Geoff Lloyd and John Fedmowski who have six wins from the eight games played to date. Mornington is second, with Greg Price out in front as leading player board and remains undefeated after four rounds. Rye’s Darren Smales and Sandy Kouroupidis have inflicted Skye’s first loss of the season and in doing so moved their side into second place on the A3 grade ladder. Mornington’s Lucy Fowler and Mt Eliza’s Des Gamble have moved to equal second spot on the leading player board with six wins from the eight matches played to date. Len Gorfine leads the way.

DANDENONG Stingrays recorded a fourgoal victory over North Ballarat Rebels at Shepley Oval in Dandenong on Saturday. The Stingrays emerged as a serious TAC Cup premiership contender as they handed the ladder-leading Rebels their third loss of the season, 15.13 (103) to 12.7 (79).. The Rebels won the third term but the class of Lachie Whitfield, Jason Pongracic and Ryan Marks-Logan proved too much. Whitfield and Ryan Morrison booted three majors and Robert Hill, Billy Rolfe and Nick Tuddenham were also solid performers. ‘‘We had a pleasing win and I thought we played close to our best,’’ Stingrays coach Graeme Yeats said. ‘‘You never say that you have played your best but the areas we’ve been looking for improvement which is sustained workrate we were pretty good.’’ The Rebels were best served by Kyle Hendy and Jake Neade. Yeats said the Stingrays had set themselves for a big performance against the Rebels who have been the pacesetters in the TAC Cup this year. ‘‘We always respect Ballarat and it was a really good standard of gam. ‘‘We’re not getting ahead of ourselves by any means. We’re continually looking for improvement and if we achieve incremental improvement across the board we’re happy.’’ The Stingrays have this weekend off before travelling to Wangaratta to play the Murray Bushrangers on Sunday, August 19 before closing out their season against Geelong Falcons at Highgate Recreation Reserve the following Saturday. Yeats said the Stingrays’ players would not represent their local clubs this weekend with their young bodies needing the rest. Stingrays star Billy Hartung has nominated for the pool of 17 year olds eligible to be considered for the Greater Western Sydney Giants incentive trading rules. Under the list establishment rules for the Giants that were approved by the AFL Com-

mission, the Giants do not have the right to claim any of the players who have nominated, but can trade with any of the other 17 AFL clubs for those teams to have selection rights from this pool of players. This is the final year of the incentive trading rules and a total of two selections can be traded by the Giants to the

other teams in the competition. Hartung, who is from Mornington, is a member of the Australian Institute of Sport AFL academy and is one of 16 youngsters who have nominated for the pool. ‘‘He is going to be a very good player,’’ Yeats said.

Young Steelers cruise into semis WESTERN Port Steelers have stormed into the semi-finals with a 72-53 win over Altona in their State Youth Championship 2 men’s elimination final at Mornington Basketball Stadium on Saturday. The Steelers started in emphatic fashion and put the heat on right from the get-go. Steelers coach Kenny Brunner credited his team’s commitment and defence for playing a pivotal role in the victory. ‘‘The guys came out really focused,’’ Brunner said. ‘‘When we are focused we are one of the best defensive teams in the league.’’ The Steelers up-tempo game style, which Brunner likens to an American style of play, is what he believes gave his undersized team an edge. [ 38 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

‘‘We don’t have a lot of big guys,’’ Brunner said. ‘‘We like to get it out onto the open court where we can run it.’’ Key scorers Rikki Deehan and and Sean Hogenbirk had a slow day on the the scoreboard but Brunner was pleased they found other ways to contribute. ‘‘Rikki didn’t score that much but he got other players involved,’’ he said. ‘‘Hogenbirk was a monster on the glass.’’ Kade Marra was at his best, chipping in 19 points and Rhys Featherston was hot from beyond the arc, knocking down seven threes and top-scoring with 21 points. The Steelers will now come up against Cranbourne in the semi final at the Casey Indoor Leisure Complex. Brunner says his team can defeat the Cavaliers.

Noonan fifth in ‘Gun’ MORNINGTON jockey Jake Noonan finished fifth in the Asian Young Guns Challenge at Macau’s Taipa racecourse on Saturday night. The Victorian apprentice headed over with the job of defending the title won by countryman Jordan Mallyon at Flemington last year, but he was always behind the eight-ball after his ride in the second of three heats was scratched. That left Noonan needing a top-two finish in the other two heats to be any chance in the series that brought together the best young riders from nine countries. Noonan had to settle for fourth in both those events. His first outing was aboard Happy Strength in the heat won comfortably by local jockey Martin Cangas. Noonan again finished just behind the placegetters in the final heat, won in runaway style by Malaysia’s Kamal Yazid. Noonan collected seven points in each of those events and was allocated six points in the heat that he watched from the sidelines — which was won by Ka Chun Ng — to give him 20 points for the series. Ng’s fifth placing in the final heat secured him series victory on 40 points, clear of Yazid (35) and South Korea’s Seung Un Seo (31). Noonan also had a ride in the feature event on the seven-race card, in which he logged yet another fourth placing, beaten by more than three lengths aboard Easy Money. [WPW]


In-form Tigers shock the Sharks BY MORGAN COLE DROMANA has staged a massive coup with a 33-point victory over league benchmark Sorrento in their Nepean League clash at David McFarlane reserve on Saturday. This is only the second time this year Sorrento has dropped a game and the first time they have lost at home since round one of last year, which also came at the hands of Dromana. The Tigers have now won four straight, which includes wins over other finals contenders Crib Point and Rosebud. Tigers coach Gavin Artico was delighted with his side’s form. ‘‘We are playing some good footy at the right time of the year,’’ Artico said. ‘‘The challenges are coming at the right time. These are the tests that you want.’’

Incident stops game A JUNIOR football match in Mt Eliza was cancelled on Sunday after an umpire was allegedly struck by a player. The alleged incident occurred in the under-16s game between Mt Eliza and Chelsea at Emil Madsen Reserve. Frankston and District Junior Football League president Stuart Mason confirmed the game had been abandoned and the incident was being investigated. The Weekly understands a player from Chelsea was penalised by the umpire for verbal abuse before the player allegedly retaliated physically. Mason would not give specific details about the alleged incident. ‘‘There was an incident between an umpire and a player,’’ he said. ‘‘The independent tribunal is investigating it and we will know more later in the week.’’ Mason said the FDJFL has ‘‘zero tolerance’’ as its policy on umpirerelated abuse and believes the alleged incident is an isolated event. ‘‘It disappoints us to have any incidents,’’ he said. ‘‘We have 3500 kids and thousands of games of football and unfortunately it is just one of those things and we have young adults who get hot under the collar. ‘‘Occasionally, a kid might drop an F-bomb or stub a toe.’’ Mason said the tribunal was expected to meet tonight to make a ruling on the alleged incident. — Brad McGrath

Sorrento battled hard despite the Tigers applying plenty of pressure, Leigh Treeby and Tyrren Head doing their best to keep Sorrento involved in the contest. Sorrento coach Nick Claringbold was disappointed with the Sharks’ lacklustre performance. ‘‘The application and attitude just wasn’t there like it has been in weeks before,’’ he said. ‘‘Not to take anything away from Dromana, who put in a super effort.’’ Dromana controlled the tempo for most of the day, the Sharks going goalless for most of the third term before making up some ground in the final quarter to save some face. Ryan Worn was a standout for the Tigers, keeping Sorrento danger man Leigh Poholke to a modest one goal tally and managing one goal himself. Liam Hogan and Braeden Dennis were also

among the Tigers’ high achievers, the midfield duo providing plenty of supply for forwards Jerryd Savage and Steven Gaertner. Sorrento playing coach and former St Kilda defender Troy Schwarze was forced off the ground with a fractured cheekbone after a collision with Tigers forward Paul Minchington. Dromana will play its last home game of the season when it hosts Red Hill. In other Peninsula League matches, Crib Point easily disposed of Devon Meadows with a comfortable 45-point margin. Pearcedale notched up its fourth win of the season with a 58-point defeat of Tyabb. Somerville added to Red Hill’s woes, upsetting the Hillmen by 21 points. Hastings continued its march towards the finals, defeating the Frankston Bombers by 35 points.

Superb Stonecats looking sharp FRANKSTON YCW has sharpened its claws for September action with a 47-point victory over finals contender Bonbeach in their MPNFL Peninsula League clash at Jubilee Park on Saturday. The young Sharks were brave early and challenged the Stonecats all over the ground, but it didn’t take long for the dam wall to burst, the Stonecats sending through five unanswered goals in the second term. Bonbeach coach Steve Capp was pleased with his side’s resilience early, but lauded the work and class of the experienced Stonecats midfield. ‘‘We were competitive early in patches,’’ Capp said. ‘‘Their clearance work is second to none. ‘‘There were times were I wanted to put the board down and applaud.’’ Stonecats ruckman Ash Eames demonstrated why he is the most revered big man in the league with a powerful performance of tap work, and his ability to cut off attacks caused the Sharks headaches. Stonecats on-baller Ben Tellis took full advantage of Eames’ dominance, kicking two goals and putting in another outstanding performance in the centre. YCW coach Tony Barry praised the efforts of the midfielder. ‘‘[Tellis] has been our most consistent performer this season,’’ Barry said. It was again the Stonecats’ ability to spread the load in front of goal that proved telling. Michael Chaplin kicked three goals while Ricky Morris and Lewis Roberts added two each. ‘‘Chaplin has been really impressive,’’ Barry said. Shane McDonald led the way for the Sharks with two majors, covering well

in the absence of key forward Nathan Hicks. The Sharks are now hanging on just inside the top four with Chelsea and Seaford breathing down their necks. Bonbeach comes up against Pines, who have turned their season around since snapping a nine-game losing streak in round 10, while Frankston takes on Edithvale-Aspendale. In other Peninsula League games, Pines continued its late season resurgence and dealt a critical blow to Seaford’s finals chances, upsetting the Tigers by 22 points on Sunday.

Edithvale-Aspendale lifted itself off the bottom of the ladder with a 20-point victory over struggling Mornington. Mt Eliza returned to the winner’s list with a 112-point demolition of Chelsea, forwards Michael Lourey and Scott Lockwood kicking six goals apiece. Karingal crushed Langwarrin to the tune 92 points, Bulls key forward Chris Hay having a field day with six majors. For more pictures from the MPNFL, visit peninsulaweekly.com.au.
