PARENTS in Western Port are set to fork out more to get their children to and from school while transport options are reduced. In drastic changes to travel assistance subsidies for schoolchildren announced recently by Education Minister Martin Dixon, the conveyance allowance will be means tested from next year and available only to families who receive the education maintenance allowance or hold health care or pensioner concession cards. Western Port Secondary College principal Andrew Nicholls said the school had already been notified that three of its nine bus routes would be cut next year. ‘‘Our bus routes will be cut back from nine routes to six next year,’’ he said. ‘‘I am a bit concerned about the capacity of these buses.’’ The urban growth boundary that determines eligibility for the allowance will also be altered. The changes will not apply to students who are receiving the conveyance allowance but will apply to new students from next year. ‘‘The bus boundaries have also been redrawn so if students live outside those boundaries they won’t be able to catch the buses,’’ Mr Nicholls said. ‘‘They will just have to make their own way to school and won’t receive any assistance to pay for their fares. ‘‘If the older brother or sister is still receiving the allowance they will be able to catch the school bus but new siblings starting in year 7 won’t be able to catch the same bus.’’ Mr Nicholls said the lack of available public transport in the area put additional pressure on students. ‘‘With the public routes the timing doesn’t work very well,’’ he said. ‘‘If a student was living in Crib Point they would have to wait an hour and a half to catch the train home after school.’’ He hoped the guideline changes would encourage more students to attend schools closer to home. ‘‘It may mean some students who were previously busing out of the area to attend other

Re: Dog walkers in national parks facing wider bans Regarding a letter in the Weekly on October 31, a dog on a lead doesn’t cause the damage. Unfortunately, as per half the dog walkers I encounter while walking my dog on a lead, the majority of owners seem to not care that having control of your dog, national park or street, is the law. I have now restricted my walks to few areas due to my dog being attacked numerous times by dogs wandering the streets, so I can only imagine the concern to protect our national parks and the wildlife. Even the sensitive area off Craigie Road, where it’s so obviously an on-lead area, has the same idiots walking their dogs off lead. I’m sick of it. Can’t imagine how the rangers are feeling. Sally, Mt Martha

represent every single one of you, regardless of age. I sincerely apologise for implying otherwise. My door will always be open, whether for a casual chat or serious policy discussion — I hope to hear from you soon. Mornington Peninsula Shire councillor Andrew Dixon

I thank all who voted for me and who asked their friends to vote for me. Had I known that I would receive so much support I would have put in a better effort and from that point I feel I have let you, and myself, down. Came in fourth by less than 200 votes. I did achieve my main goal of helping an excellent councillor, Graham Pittock, get re-elected. I completely failed in my goal in getting [councillors] Gibb and Celi unelected, but did manage to ‘get to them’ and rattle their chain. I want to particularly thank Peter Holloway for his allocation of 596 preference votes. Again, thanks for your support and hopefully the shire, and one councillor in particular, will take notice that we are not one or two ratbags causing trouble. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Thousands ‘are at risk of drowning’ BY LEE OPITZ

                                                                                                                                              

IT is estimated that one in five children will leave primary school this year without the ability to swim. Royal Life Saving Society of Australia chief executive Rob Bradley said that nationwide, 600,000 young adults aged 15-24 had completely missed out on a water safety education, had little or no swimming and water safety skills and were at ‘‘extreme risk’’ of drowning. ‘‘Fifty thousand children will leave primary school this Christmas with virtually no swimming skills. These children will not be able to swim 50 metres or even stay afloat for just two minutes,’’ Mr Bradley said. ‘‘And the problem will only get worse unless governments act.’’ The society and Life Saving Victoria are calling on federal and state governments to make swimming lessons compulsory at all primary schools throughout Victoria. While learn-to-swim programs have never been a compulsory part of the Victorian primary

school curriculum, they were conducted at most schools during the 1960s and ’70s. However, Mr Bradley said that as more private pool centres began to spring up, particularly over the past 10 to 15 years, schools gradually dropped their programs. ‘‘I have no doubt these swim schools do a great job, but we estimate that only about 20 per cent of primary-school aged children are having lessons at private centres.’’ There are about five swimming schools on the Mornington Peninsula, including one at the council-owned Pelican Park pool in Hastings. Sorrento Primary School, Red Hill Consolidated School and most private primary schools on the peninsula have their own pools and charge a pool levy at the start of the year which varies from school to school. A Weekly survey of 22 primary schools on the peninsula found that all but one offered a noncompulsory swimming program of some sort. Two offered lessons to pupils in prep to grade 2 only, and one only had a senior grade program.

Life saving: Royal Life Saving Society of Australia is campaigning for compulsory swimming lessons in all primary schools. Most coastal schools included a beach water safety component in their program. Programs ranged from just two water safety sessions at a beach run by teachers, to 10 sessions at a pool. Costs ranged from $48 to $70 while private lessons ranged from $12.50 to $19 per half hour. ‘‘Thousands and thousands of families cannot afford swimming lessons,” Mr Bradley said. ‘‘We’d like to see a return to the days when every child got tested practising CPR, diving for bricks and swimming in pyjamas. Swimming

ability and confidence in the water are skills every child needs.’’ Mr Bradley said a national benchmark of swimming and water safety skills needed to be urgently established and supported by all governments. ‘‘Reinvestment in long-standing school and vacation programs needs to be a major priority.’’ RLSSA is asking all Victorians to go to swimandsurvive.com.au and pledge their support on a petition calling for swimming lessons to become mandatory in all primary schools.

BALNARRING shopping centre is the latest area to be named a neighbourhood safer place in the event of a bushfire. Balnarring and Flinders shopping centres are the only two designated areas in the Western Port region, compared with 10 around the remainder of the peninsula, including another late addition, McCrae Plaza. The establishment of Neighbourhood Safer Places — Places of Last Resort (NSPs) was a recommendation of the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission in 2009. In a report to Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, its municipal fire prevention officer Damien Taylor stated that, as the name suggested, NSPs should only be considered a place of last resort. He stated that council officers and the Country Fire Authority had a number of concerns about NSPs, including the fear that many residents considered them a major part of their bushfire survival plan. ‘‘NSPs may provide some protection

from the effects of radiant heat, but they offer no guarantee of safety or survival. They only cater for a small number of individuals and should only be used as a place of last resort. ‘‘The community needs to be prepared for bushfires by undertaking appropriate fire measures. They need to plan ahead, leave the area early and relocate to family or friends who do not live in a high-bushfire-prone area.’’ Mr Taylor told the council that the Western Port area did not need as many NSP locations because it was at less risk of a major fire. ‘‘Unlike the [rest of] Mornington Peninsula, grass fires are more prevalent than bushfires in Western Port.’’ The current sites are: Balnarring shopping centre; Blairgowrie shops car park; Dromana Recreation Reserve; Flinders shopping precinct between Norman and Wood streets; McCrae Plaza; Emil Madsen Reserve, Mt Eliza; Mt Martha shopping precinct; W E Newton Reserve, Portsea; Olympic Park, Rosebud West; Tootgarook Recreation Reserve; Rye shopping strip and foreshore; and David McFarlan Reserve, Sorrento.

Phil enjoys having a Dickens of a time HASTINGS resident Phil Zachariah has made his mark on the stage with a well loved Christmas tale. He has put on Charles Dickens Performs A Christmas Carol 92 times, but it still brings him joy to perform it. ‘‘That is one of the wonderful things about it, I keep coming back to it and finding new things,’’ he said. ‘‘Contemporary accounts of the way Dickens performed it state that you could see each time he performed he was genuinely excited that he was going to hear the story again. That is how I feel.’’ Zachariah said the classic Christmas tale still held some surprises for the audience. ‘‘We have all seen versions of it and have enjoyed it in various forms but unless you have read the book recently it is full of surprises,’’ he said. ‘‘People are surprised by the complexity and beauty of the story. It has death, misery and oppression but it also has a lot of humour in it. ‘‘Dickens was very playful and there are

a lot of playful asides that carry the story.’’ Speaking to the Weekly before heading off on a world tour to perform the play, Zachariah was as excited as ever. As Dickens, he slips into 20 characters throughout the course of the play, including mothers, wives and girlfriends. Without costume changes, he recreates the characters marvellously with only his voice, bringing to life every nuance of the story. Having trained at the National Theatre in Melbourne, Zachariah has worked hard to get where he is. ‘‘I was very interested in science at school but when I didn’t get my applied physics degree because I was too tied up in theatre at the time, I realised I wasn’t going to be a scientist and acting was my second love,’’ he said. ‘‘I’ve worked almost exclusively in theatre but I’ve also done a few short films and a bit of television.’’ But theatre is still his greatest passion. ‘‘I’d much prefer the stage, you can make mistakes on the stage and it is part of the experience.

Festive play: Phil Zachariah stars in Charles Dickens Performs A Christmas Carol. ‘‘I once introduced the ghost of Christmas past as the ghost of Christmas present. The audience laughed and they enjoyed it.’’ While he loves travelling the globe to perform, including to audiences that don’t speak English, he is always happy to come home to Hastings.

INBRIEF Man’s body in car for three days

The National Broadband Network supports better wi-fi

A 42-year-old Dromana man found dead in his car may have been there for up to three days. Bruno Vassiliou was last seen at a Rosebud pharmacy in Point Nepean Road on Friday, October 19 and was found in the passenger seat of his vehicle on October 21 about 2.10 pm by a Rosebud shop assistant who alerted police, who suspect Mr Vassiliou died on the Friday and that his body had been in the car all weekend. Rosebud’s Acting Sergeant John Anderson said the car had been parked in a busy shopping precinct and may not have been noticed by passers-by. ‘‘People don’t tend to pay much attention to those types of things,’’ he said. The site was originally treated as a crime scene but later deemed as not suspicious. ‘‘A specific cause of death won’t be known until the coroner’s report is released,’’ Acting Sergeant Anderson said.

Bid to rob ATM fails Police are searching for two men who tried to steal an ATM in Balnarring Village. They first went to the NAB ATM on Saturday at 2.45am and tried to take money. The men then went to the ANZ ATM and reversed a Holden utility, threw a strap around the free-standing machine and attached it to the tow bar in an attempt to drive off with it. They left empty-handed after causing significant damage to both machines, which will need to be replaced. One of the men was wearing a long-sleeved fluoro shirt and dark pants. The other wore a dark hoodie and pants. The men are believed to be aged between 18 and 35. Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Hastings CIU on 5970 7800.

Spate of car fires in Somerville Police are investigating three car fires in the past week in Somerville. The cars, which were burnt out, were taken from One Chain Road, Angelina Way and Montrose Avenue. Police suspect the fires may be linked. Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Two Rosebud men have been charged with robbery following an incident on November 4. Detective Senior Constable Peter Butland said six teenagers, aged 14-15, were approached in Point Nepean Road by the pair who demanded they hand over two backpacks. The men, both aged 26, then headed along Seventh Avenue, where police say they found one asleep by the side of the road and the other trying to wake him up. The first man allegedly had one of the stolen backpacks and the other had the contents of the second backpack in his pockets. They were bailed to appear before the Frankston Magistrates Court on December 4.

Somerville fire controlled CFA crews managed to contain an out-of-control burn-off on a private property in Somerville on Sunday. Half a hectare and rubbish were burned before firefighters managed to contain the blaze just after 3pm. Two brigade vehicles and 10 fire trucks attended the incident in Eramosa Road and the fire was controlled before it could threaten homes. Fire restrictions were not in place on the day. A CFA spokeswoman encouraged people to register burn-offs with the authority. Tips on how to conduct burn-offs safely can be found at cfa.vic.gov.au/register-burnoff.htm.

Cheers for the Orange team BY LEE OPITZ AT least 600 people can vouch that volunteers with Sorrento State Emergency Service deserve recognition during National SES Week. This is the number of emergency calls volunteers have responded far this year. Unit spokesman Mike Ringham said the team of highly trained volunteers was working tirelessly to ensure that Mornington Peninsula residents were kept as safe as possible. Thirty-seven per cent of call-outs were to Rosebud and Rye. Other suburbs bordering Port Phillip accounted for 40 per cent. Calls to Red Hill and Main Ridge, which were mainly for trees down on roads, contributed 13 per cent. The Sorrento crew also helped Lilydale, Emerald, Nunawading, Shepparton and Nathalia units in work after storms and flooding. ‘‘The most significant and pleasing figure is a 25 per cent reduction in the number of road crash rescue incidents,’’ Mr Ringham said. “More than 400 trees were blown down during this time and more than half of these fell across roads, creating potentially danger-

Cars could have crashed into them, particularly on dark, wet nights.” The number of flooding incidents was already double the 2011 total, he said. “The SES would like to reinforce its message that the community can reduce this by

ensuring that gutters, downpipes and drains are kept clear of dead leaves and other obstructions.” National SES Week runs until next Sunday. For details on how to take part, go to ses.vic.gov.au.

RACEGOERS at the Peninsula Cup generally behaved themselves on November 4, with less arrests than at last year’s event. Five patrons were arrested, two of them after being involved in a fight in the Mornington racecourse car park. Four arrests in Mornington after the event included an incident in which two men were apprehended at the McDonald’s restaurant after a fight broke out between two groups. Four police arrived at the restaurant about 7.30pm and capsicum spray was used to subdue one of the men. Mornington’s Senior Sergeant Neil Aubert said 39 people were ejected from the racecourse, down from 76 last year. The fine weather brought out the crowds, with more than 10,000 people attending the cup. Many continued partying in Mornington, with several people refused entry to popular nightspots due to intoxication. Extra police were put on to manage the crowds

‘If you don’t plan properly, you won’t be able to get out of town.’ — Neil Aubert and traffic, and restaurateurs put on additional staff. A few retailers in Main Street reported smashed windows and damage to their shop fronts following the cup. Nobody was arrested for drinking offences and no racegoers were injured during the day’s festivities. Senior Sergeant Aubert said the increased police presence helped deter people from antisocial behaviour. He advised racegoers to nominate a designated driver as public transport was limited and taxis were unable to cope with the demand. ‘‘If you don’t plan properly, you won’t be able to get out of town.’’

FEATURESTORY CATHERINE WATSON visits the Moonlit Sanctuary and finds herself in rare company. Photos GARY SISSONS

The stuff of legend: Birdwatchers are making a beeline for the Moonlit Sanctuary to see the orange-bellied parrots.

Animal attraction: Michael Johnson always dreamed of running an animal sanctuary.

Parrots find a rare haven I

’m doing my best not to be over-awed by the occasion but it’s not easy. The last time I felt remotely like this was in 1981 when Prince Charles drove past and looked straight at me. Even that fades into insignificance . . . you’re much more likely to meet a prince in the wild than you are an orange-bellied parrot. An orange-bellied parrot sounds like something out of a Monty Python skit, and the parrot really has become the stuff of legend. In 2004, it halted a wind farm and these days it’s used as a kind of shorthand for greenies who allegedly find traces of an orange-bellied parrot any time they want to stop a new development. Australian experts believe there is a single population of less than 50 birds left in the wild, making it the world’s most critically endangered parrot and one of the world’s rarest birds. And here I am looking at seven of them, in Pearcedale’s Moonlit Sanctuary. Serious bird-watchers have been beating a path to Moonlit since the birds arrived a couple of months ago. One man came from Adelaide just to see the parrots. I’m far from an expert but I’ve heard so much about this bird for so long that I find myself unexpectedly thrilled to see one at last. I notice that Weekly photographer Gary Sissons, who is much more knowledgeable about birds, is grinning too. It’s not just the bird’s rarity but its [ 12 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

HAPPYSANCTUARY SOMETIMES Michael Johnson has to pinch himself to be sure he’s not dreaming: he really is running an animal sanctuary. As a child, inspired by Gerald Durrell’s My Family and Other Animals, he dreamed of working in a zoo or running a sanctuary. Life got in the way, as it does for most of us, and he went to work in the family boat-building business. It was only after a divorce that he took stock and decided that if he was ever going to do it, now was the time. Eleven years ago, Mr Johnson bought a 10-hectare bare paddock at Pearcedale and started work on his dream. These days it houses wallabies, wombats, snakes, dingoes and a host of birds, endangered and otherwise, and attracts

gorgeousness: the yellow and green body and face with a violet blue edge to the wing. It’s only when they take off that you notice the splash of orange on the belly. They could have been designed byWalt Disney. Sanctuary owner Michael Johnson shares the joy: he says his heart soars when he watches them flying. One of the real pleasures for him is knowing that this area, just 500 metres from Western Port, is actually the parrot’s winter territory. ‘‘That helps from a climatic point of view and makes it easy to get their natural food.’’ In fact,

November 14, 2012

a steady stream of school and tour groups. At least half the visitors are from overseas. The sanctuary has also won a host of awards: a Victorian Tourism Award for ecotourism and a Zoo Aquarium Association of Australia award. Asked if running a sanctuary is a profitable business, Mr Johnson laughs. ‘‘What do they say? If you want to make a small fortune, just start with a big one.’’ No, he says, it will never make a fortune but it does make him — and visitors — extremely happy. Sitting near the wetlands, with Cape Barren geese honking behind him and a Tammar wallaby and her joey lying in the sun nearby, he says: ‘‘This is exactly what I envisaged.’’

neighbours of the sanctuary have been bringing in saltbush, glassworts and other marsh plants that grow on the edge of the bay to supplement the diets of the very important guests. Until the early 1900s the parrots were common in south-eastern Australia. They have disappeared from NSW and are now found only in south-west Tasmania (where they return to breed) and a coastal strip of Victoria and South Australia. Securing the birds from the official breeding program at the Healesville Sanctuary was a real coup for Moonlit and recognition that

it can play an important role in the protection of endangered species. In the early years of the captive breeding program, there was a very low success rate, with most of the young birds dying, but the survival rate has improved as the recovery team has learned more. There are now more than 200 captive-bred birds and the team is working towards building numbers up to some 350 with a view to releasing 20-30 captive-bred birds into the wild each year. The director of the orange bellied parrot recovery program, Dr Peter Menkhorst, visited Moonlit for the official launch of the parrot exhibition. He had good news for the guests about the wild population: at least 14 young birds fledged last season. The seven parrots at Moonlit are all past their prime breeding age but certainly not beyond breeding and Mr Johnson is hopeful they will produce young. Next year the sanctuary will build an off-limits breeding facility for 10 pairs—the only one actually within orange-bellied parrot habitat. After that, who knows? Perhaps, if numbers build up, wild orange-bellied parrots will one day visit Moonlit Sanctuary to forage for food. For more information about the recovery program, visit birdlife.org.au/projects.

Aboriginal pride as new gallery opens BY HAYDN GODONY n Aboriginal arts centre was officially launched in Mornington last week with a smoking ceremony and weaving, jewellery making and wood-burning demonstrations. Baluk Arts, a non-profit and artist-owned Aboriginal art centre, has a gallery and studio space for Aboriginal artists from within the region. Indigenous jazz singer Liz Cavanagh and didgeridoo player David Dryden performed at the event which also featured the launch of a workshop program which the public can attend and work with the artists to create a more personal piece of work. “The opening was fantastic,” gallery manager Tracey-Lea Smith said. “I’ve just been looking through the photos, with a smile from ear to ear. The group felt so much pride.

A

“One of the artists came in this morning and said they felt like their ancestors were ‘with’ them. On the opening day they felt blessed, supported, by their ancestors, which is pretty nice.’’ Ms Smith said the community support was encouraging. ‘‘We are looking forward to having a busy tourist season. We’ll be open right through. We want people to come in and connect with this artist-run space. “We have been displaying in Melbourne and as it develops we hope to sell overseas as well. ‘‘The [Aboriginal art] industry has had a rough time over the past few years due to the global financial crisis.”

Baluk Arts is open from Tuesday-Friday at 6 Bruce Street, Mornington. Details: 5975 5000 or balukarts.org.au.

Strong entry: Rye artist Bob Kelly displays his piece, Stronger in Numbers, at the Baluk Arts opening.

rier and after biding his time near the tail Bowman brought the daughter of Dubleo with a powerful finish along the inside to score. Specked in the betting to start at $26, after $31 was earlier available, Koonoomoo scored by 1 1⁄2 lengths from Sydney visitor Cabernet ($13) with Stradbroke Handicap winner Mid Summer Music ($8.50) running an improved run to finish third, a further neck back. “I thought today was a very even race and she was at great odds for her form,” the trainer said. “In a big stable she’d be much shorter, but I couldn’t have been happier with her leading into today. “It was a beautiful ride. ‘‘The instructions were to go back and ride for luck because she’s happier ridden quietly, last start she was ridden a bit too close to the speed, but

today ridden quietly she hit the line superbly.” Fellow Mornington trainer Pat Carey was also successful at Flemington, despite Ethiopia breaking down in the Melbourne Cup. Carey’s six year old Kasane won the $100,000 TAB Trophy (1700m) with eventual Melbourne Cup winning jockey Brett Prebble on board. The fast-finishing mare beat home Mabsam and Aliyana by half a length. Carey said in a statement on his stable’s website that Ethiopia, who finished last in the Melbourne Cup, had been pulled up by jockey Rhys McLeod after he ‘‘didn’t feel everything was right’’. The statement went on to say that Ethiopia jumped awkwardly from the barriers and returned to the mounting yard with a cut above the pelvis, tenderness in the hind quarters and missing a front shoe.

Sharks youngster makes national team ELLA Hellessey is set to become the first Southern Peninsula Sharks’ basketballer to represent Australia. The prodigiously talented Hellessey was named in the under-16 national outfit to play at the FIBA Oceania Pacific youth championship at Churchill this month. ‘‘We’re obviously very proud to have someone that started all their juniors at Southern Peninsula Sharks,’’ Sharks head coach Gerard Hillier said. ‘This serves as a great reward for all the extra training and hard work Ella has put into basketball, and a clear sign of the strength of the Southern Peninsula Sharks junior program.” It was a long selection process for Hellessey. After being chosen in the Victorian Country team, the youngster impressed at the Southern Cross Challenge and Australian Junior Country Cup earlier this year. She then represented Victoria Country at the Australian under-16 nationals at Tamworth before being identified as one of the top 20 prospects and being given the opportunity to attend a camp at the Australian Institute of Sport. The Sharks boast a handful of players who will represent Victoria Country at the Australian Junior Country Cup in Albury next year. Hillier said they would also attend the Southern Cross Challenge in Ballarat. — Brad McGrath

Blues pick up Ranger Louis

Trainer breaks 10-year hoodoo MORNINGTON trainer Simon Vercoe broke through to the big time when Kooonoomoo won the $200,000 Group 3 Herald Sun Stakes (1400m) at the Melbourne Cup meeting last Tuesday. It wasn’t just Vercoe’s first big race victory but his first win on a metropolitan track in more than a decade of training. ‘‘This is a great day to break the duck,” Vercoe said. “I couldn’t be happier. “We’ve had a few seconds and thirds, close calls with some bad luck stories and all that, but I just thought that the horse is going well enough to have a go and the result’s there.” Koonoomoo atoned for luckless second placings at her past two starts to register the fifth win of her 22-start career. Vercoe instructed top Sydney jockey Hugh Bowman to snag Koonoomoo back from her wide bar-

FRANKSTON Blues coach Alan McAughtry has wasted no time using his links with the Australian Institute of Sport by signing talented guard Ben Louis for next season. Louis, 24, crosses from rival SEABL club Dandenong Rangers to boost the Blues’ backcourt and take some pressure off stalwart guard Mitch Chapman. McAughtry renews his ties with Louis after coaching the promising youngster at state and national under-17 teams before he joined the US college system with James Madison University. “Ben is a real character-driven guy and is a great pick up for our program moving forward,’’ he said. ‘‘It is great to get the opportunity to coach Ben again.’’ Louis was a starting guard for the Rangers, who won the east conference title this year. He is regarded as a strong contributor in both offence and defence. ‘‘I am very happy and proud to be part of the Frankston Blues program,’’ he said. The Blues also announced that they had re-signed Mike McInnes last week. The recent signatures also include Chapman, Grant Dennis and Matt Witherden, who were all long-time servants of the Blues under outgoing coach Bill Runchey. McAughtry said McInnes had all the attributes to become an elite SEABL player in the coming seasons. ‘‘Signing Mike is another coup for our club and senior Blues program,’’ McAughtry said. ‘‘Mike is a hard worker and will develop into a very good player if he continues to work at his game in the right areas.’’ McInnes said it was an exciting time for the Blues under the guidance of McAughtry after the shock dismissal of long-time coach Runchey. ‘‘It’s great to again be representing the Blues next season,’’ he said. ‘‘It is good to see the core group back which will give us a good foundation to build on. ‘‘With the appointment of Alan as coach it is exciting and with his background am looking forward to drawing on his experience.’’

YCW coach signs up again to try for four flags in a row REIGNING premier Frankston YCW has reappointed Tony Barry as its senior coach for next season. The three-time premiership coach signed recently when his nephew, star player Byron Barry, indicated he was not ready to step into the senior role. Football manager Neil Reddaway said the ball had always been in Barry’s court and said he had deliberated long and hard before committing [ 38 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

himself to another season. ‘‘He was weighing it up at the end of the year and it just took a bit of time,’’ Reddaway said. ‘‘There was a suggestion we were going with Byron but Byron decided he couldn’t do it because he has got a big year ahead of him. ‘‘You don’t get an opportunity to win four premierships in a row as a coach or as a player very often.’’ The Stonecats have retained the bulk of their

premiership-winning squad, although Lewis Roberts has returned to Wagga to be with his mother, who is ill. ‘‘Adrian McIntyre is reconsidering his plans to retire and the Stonecats are confident the tough small man will continue. ‘‘We’re out chasing some recruits because we’d like to have a fair dinkum crack at four in a row,’’ Reddaway said.

Baxter bowlers aim for revenge BY MORGAN COLE LONG Island has stunned Baxter by bowling out the premier for 107 on day one of the MPCA Provincial Shield match at Ballam Bark on Saturday. But after the unusually early departure from the crease, Baxter’s bowling line-up was merciless on the counter-attack, taking 6-36 in Long Island’s first innings. The premier batting line-up of Baxter, boasting the likes of Darren Uccello and Daniel Warwick, was unable to gain a foothold with the Long Island attack going on the rampage. All-rounder Paul Hartle led the charge with 5-44 from his 20 overs, including the scalps of Warwick and Uccello. ‘‘We didn’t start well at all,’’ Uccello said. ‘‘We were about 9-70 at one point. ‘‘The last couple of batters [Adrian Mack and Sam Wolsgrove] put on our best partnership for the day.’’ Being in the unfamiliar position of being bowled out for just over 100, Baxter responded with a relentless attack from Adrian Mack (2-9) and Darren Irving (4-27). ‘‘Our opening bowlers did a great job,’’ Uccello said.

‘‘This is the first time we’ve played a team in the top four this year. ‘‘During the week we spoke about how important the game was. ‘‘Things just didn’t go our way. Our shots were ordinary and they bowled well.’’ Ballam Park has been a less-thanhappy hunting ground for Baxter, which has struggled to win there since losing the 2007 grand final against Ballam Park. ‘‘We haven’t been in this position for a while,’’ Uccello said. ‘‘Hopefully, we can come back and pull off a great victory.’’ In other Provincial Shield matches, Moorooduc scored 9-277 in its clash against Heatherhill with the match to resume on Saturday. Mt Eliza gave Rye plenty to think about, making 245 in a productive first innings. Crib Point has placed itself firmly in control against Mornington, making 258. Sorrento set a huge task for Mt Martha by making 286 on day one. Youngster Jedd Falck led the way with 129. Peninsula Old Boys managed 202, the tail saving the day after a top-order collapse had them reeling.

six wickets, putting the heat on Flinders early before they were able to steady through middle-order batsman Andrew Power. Power began a revival with Shane Beggs (32), Tom Clements (35) and Nathan Hunt (30) all contributing to give Flinders some breathing space. After clearing the Flinders middle order, Pines had no trouble removing the tail.

But Pines then struggled to make an impact, Flinders bowler Matt Burns (4-10) tearing through the top order. Pines will have to rally on Saturday after finishing the first day in a tough position on 5-24. In other District Shield matches, Seaford has placed itself in a strong position over Boneo, making 218 in its first innings. Carrum has made a conservative 18 and former Casey-South Melbourne

so it was good to get back on the front foot.’’ Red Hill was bolstered by a win in the Twenty20 Jack Peacock cup over District Shield team Boneo. ‘‘We set ourselves up to have a good game,’’ Dart said. ‘‘Beating a District side [Boneo] gave us plenty of momentum going forward. ‘‘We are really happy with the way we bowled.’’ In other Sub-district Shield matches, Seaford Tigers are on the cusp of chasing down a slender total of 78 set by Dromana. Balnarring is in a strong position against Skye, defending a fruitful first innings of 238. Rosebud has brought French Island back from the clouds, making 297 in its first innings, Darren Kerr unbeaten with 129 and Leslie Parslow made 99. — Morgan Cole

Middle order saves Flinders as Pines steps up pressure FLINDERS has set a defendable total of 181 after a rocky start to its first innings against Pines in the MPCA District Shield match at Eric Bell Reserve on Saturday. The middle order was the saving grace for Flinders after Pines bowler Nick Wilcox forced their backs against the wall, taking the prize wickets of opening pair Brennan Gillies and Tim Clarke. Wilcox was unstoppable and took

declare at 9-212. Tootgarook was forced back into bat for 10 overs before stumps, finishing at 1-13 in its second innings. ‘‘We had a go at them to see if we could pinch another wicket, and we did,’’ Dart said. ‘‘Tootgarook is a strong club, so we will need to work doubly hard on day two to get the points. ‘‘We know that it won’t come easily.’’ Dart was delighted with his team’s turnaround after going down to French Island, the toughest trip in the Sub-District competition. ‘‘It was a great response after last week. It’s like the Bermuda Triangle down there. ‘‘It was just the strangest game of cricket. [French Island] have a bright future and they are a well-led team. We didn’t play our best cricket last round,

FRANKSTON Peninsula Heat captain-coach Matt Chasemore has put faith in his batsmen to chase down a massive total at Junction Oval in Premier Cricket this Saturday. Despite five wickets from Victorian paceman Scott Boland, St Kilda smashed 339 against the Heat. Saints captain and former first-class batsman Graeme Rummans led the way with 152 in nearperfect batting conditions. Chasemore remains very optimistic his outfit can chase the total down. ‘‘It’s a real chance for someone to stand up,’’ Chasemore said. ‘‘We just need to make sure that we bat for the full 90 overs.’’ The Heat will look to Chasemore, who made a season-high 115 against the Camberwell Magpies in the previous round. Frankston got off to a strong start, taking the wickets of St Kilda openers Peter Handscomb (13) and Matt Firth (17) through the dynamic bowling of Boland. Boland’s hot start continued when he snared No. 3 Tim Moffat leg before wicket for a duck, earning the praise of Chasemore. ‘‘Scotty bowled right through the top order,’’ Chasemore said. ‘‘It was one of the best displays of bowling I have ever seen. He was 3-5 at one stage. He didn’t get the call-up to the state team, so he had a real point to prove.’’ Boland was the standout for the Heat and finished with an impressive 5-40 off his 20 overs, including 10 maidens. He had the pressure firmly on St Kilda at 3-36, causing all sorts of headaches, but the Saints rallied through the work of Rummans. The captain combined with Daniel Forbes (77) to form a 162-run partnership for the fourth wicket, putting the Saints back in the box seat. Forbes lost his wicket to Chasemore, opening the door for Andrew McGuinness, who hit 46 to further blow out the total. ‘‘He [McGuinness] came in and had no pressure and was able to just whack them,’’ Chasemore said. Rummans was eventually caught by Tom Baron off Boland. With Rummans gone, St Kilda’s run rate quickly declined but the damage had been done.

Red Hill puts Tootgarook through the wringer RED Hill is on track to score an outright win after bowling Tootgarook out for 72 in a MPCA SubDistrict Shield match at Red Hill Reserve on Saturday. After the previous round’s shock loss to French Island, Red Hill was keen to bounce back and made no mistake with its attack, wiping out the Tootgarook batting line-up in just 33 overs. The Red Hill attack was at its most fierce and captain Simon Dart (5-37) and Glenn Collett (5-20) did Tootgarook no favours. Red Hill got off to a poor start, losing opener Rheede Hopgood for a duck but was quick to recover through opening partner Riley Shaw. Led by Shaw (58) and middle-order batsman Collett (57), Red Hill had no trouble in reaching the target, going on to
