Helping hand: Mornington Peninsula Young Citizen of the Year, Sam Hearn.

Fired up over honour BY SANDRA BULL A DEDICATED volunteer is the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s 2013 citizen of the year. Bruce McCallum, 62, was awarded the honour at an Australia Day ceremony for his longstanding contribution and dedication to the community. The modest recipient said: ‘‘This award recognises volunteers in general and not one person in particular.’’ Mr McCallum is still active in the Somers fire brigade — more than 39 years after signing up, including serving as captain for a decade. He has been a delegate to the Western Port group of brigades and regularly volunteered for strike teams attending major fires, including

Ash Wednesday and Black Saturday. His volunteering efforts also extend to being a member of the Somers Yacht Club for 25 years, a former member of the Somers foreshore committee and president of the Somers Primary School council. He has helped the community as a justice of the peace and as a teacher at the Woodleigh School’s senior campus at Langwarrin South for 37 years before retiring last year. Mr McCallum said his parents’ example of helping others had ‘‘rubbed off’’ on him. ‘‘My mother was a social worker in South Melbourne and the first municipal social worker in Australia.’’ He urged others to enjoy the satisfaction that came from helping others by signing up to help

out in the huge range of community-related volunteer roles available on the peninsula. ‘‘When I bought a small block of land I felt it was not fair for me to expect others to fight a fire there if one happened’’. Mr McCallum’s wife Jan and children Scott and Serrin were ‘‘pretty chuffed’’ at his award. Mornington resident and dedicated youth worker Sam Hearn was named the shire’s young citizen of the year. Mr Hearn, who was interstate and could not be contacted before deadline, works with ‘‘at risk’’ youngsters in the Mornington Park region, assists schools with youth-related programs and is involved with the Rye Red Frogs, which offers support, guidance and activities to school leavers through its ‘schoolies week’ celebrations.

Re: A roadmap for tourism Tourism operators and our council wax lyrical about the surge in tourism the new Peninsula link will bring. The vast majority of tourists will be daytrippers who will bring their own supplies and spend nothing here. They will occupy beach and park spaces, congest our roads, and be nothing but unwanted nuisances to local resident ratepayers, who have to actually pay to clean up after them. A small minority will be more of the drugged, drunken hooligans that we hear so much about already, causing mayhem, injury and vandalism.

Re: Mt Martha quarry As a new resident of Mt Martha, one of the major factors influencing our decision to move here was the beautiful coastline and serene bush surroundings of this area. The Mt Martha quarry cliff face and the adjoining land forms part of the beauty of this natural envir-

onment. It is where many species of native flora and fauna can be found. As such, the quarry area and its natural beauty should be protected against any high-rise developments being proposed by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. This would not only destroy the natural environment, but it would be lost for future generations. It is important that as residents we protect what we have and enhance this land by leveraging the natural features, such as the wetlands and making this area into a native bushland park.

Rosemary Rowlings, Mt Martha

Artwork distracts The so-called artwork on the new Peninsula Link freeway at the junction by the Peninsula Private Hospital at Cranbourne Road on the border of Langwarrin and Frankston East is a driverdistracting danger. I can see many rearenders occurring with drivers looking at the moving head of the sculpture. Rodsethjeremy (via web)

AUSTRALIADAY

Peninsula pride: glad to call our nation home out at Schapper Point Drive, Mornington, during celebrations. Police questioned a teenage boy but no charges had been laid at press time.

AUSTRALIA Day was celebrated in style on the Mornington Peninsula with something for everyone. The daytime events included the popular street parade in Mornington. A fun run ending in Rosebud attracted more than 1000 participants and there were Australia Day

ambassadors at flag-raising events across the peninsula. Festivities were capped off with spectacular fireworks, sponsored by the Weekly, at Mornington and Rye. Three people were taken by ambulance to Frankston Hospital with minor injuries when a fight broke

Jumping for joy: Mornington’s Australia Day parade in Main Street.

Aussie Ossie: One-month-old Oscar Taylor of Langwarrin is a proud Aussie, and with mum Sam and dad Stuart was in position on Mornington Pier to see the fun.

HIGH CARE NURSING HOME ONSITE

A CRITICAL shortage of taxis on the Mornington Peninsula has left passengers waiting almost two hours during peak periods. Sorrento Beachside Information Centre co-ordinator Jane McTherson said the lack of taxis, coupled with inadequate public transport, was making it difficult for residents and visitors. ‘‘Sometimes, people struggle just to get from the ferry into the main part of Sorrento and if they have luggage or a disability it can be very difficult,’’ she said. ‘‘If people are heading out at night and don’t want to drive they often have problems with taxis not arriving on time, if at all. Visitors come here expecting to be able to go out to dinner and visit the region but if they don’t have a car they will struggle.’’ Ms McTherson said event days such as the Portsea Polo really stretched services and she believed there was enough work on the peninsula to sustain more taxis all year round.

‘‘For the most part we advise people against using taxis because they are just too unreliable. We would like to see a more efficient taxi service in the area and more taxis operating.’’ Peninsula Taxis manager John Duggan agreed that more taxis were needed for the region. ‘‘We have applied to the government for more taxi licences but every time we do they knock us back. We haven’t had an increase in vehicles to our fleet in 12 years — the government just doesn’t understand country taxis,’’ he said. ‘‘We are busy every single day, even in the non-peak season. On big event days like the Mornington race meets we get help from other taxi companies, including Frankston Taxis, to work our area.’’ Mr Duggan conceded that response times were inadequate during peak periods, adding that while the company had fiercely lobbied politicians for assistance in getting more taxis it had received no help.

Rider steps up for cancer MT Martha resident Jeff Dadds is once again raising money for The Ride to Conquer Cancer. It is the second year he is tackling the 200-kilometre ride, after getting into cycling only 18 months ago. ‘‘My son saw the advertisements on television for the ride last year and encouraged me to do it,’’ Mr Dadds said. ‘‘I really enjoyed it so I thought I would do it again this year.’’ Mr Dadds aims to raise $4000 for the cause through a raffle he is organising. With the help of the Mornington Bicycle Superstore, he is selling raffle tickets for a bicycle and cycle gear from the store. ‘‘I am buying the bicycle at a discounted rate and selling raffle tickets to raise money for the ride,’’ he said. ‘‘I approached the Bicycle Superstore and they were more than willing to help.’’ All proceeds from the October

ride will go to the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre for vital research. ‘‘Last year the ride raised $6.2 million for cancer research,’’ Mr Dadds said. ‘‘Like most people, I have had friends who have lost their lives to cancer and if we can increase research funding and find a cure it will make an enormous difference to a lot of lives. ‘‘If I can do something to help people with cancer, that’s a great thing.’’ First prize for the raffle is a Schwinn Sporterra comp bike, worth $799. Tickets can be purchased from the Mornington Bicycle Superstore or by calling Jeff Dadds on 0407 744 385.

Safety to the fore in pool fence changes BY SAMANTHA ROBIN REGULATIONS around pool fences will become more stringent when new rules take effect from May. Mornington Peninsula Shire municipal building surveyor David Kotsiakos said the state government was cracking down on safety concerns and issues of non-compliance regarding pool fencing across the state. ‘‘The regulations are quite complex because there are different restrictions depending on when the pool was built,’’ he said. ‘‘From May this year, we will have our fourth set of regulations.’’ While the new regulations won’t apply to existing swimming pools, they will if residents replace pool fences. There are more than 22,000 swimming pools in the shire. Mr Kotsiakos said the days of bifold doors opening onto wide deckings with swimming pools were gone. ‘‘One of the main differences with the new regulations is that you will no longer be able to

have doors opening directly onto a pool area.’’ He said it was important people took pool safety seriously. ‘‘People think that in summer they can just put up an inflatable pool and then take it down again when warmer months are over, but in that time someone could drown.’’ Mr Kotsiakos said the changes were a positive for pool safety. ‘‘The regulations should be simplified and it should be made mandatory for every pool to be isolation fenced. I know of one pool drowning in the shire where I was required to give evidence at the coronial inquest. That is somewhere I never want to go again. ‘‘I hope everyone gets on board with the new regulations, to improve pool safety within the shire.’’ The changes also affect pool sellers, particularly those selling above ground and inflatable swimming pools. ‘‘The new regulations will require all pools, including inflatable and above-ground pools to have an isolation fence of 1.2 metres. It will also require sellers to inform customers of the fencing regulations upon sale for any pool with a depth

Safety first: New regulations on pool fences come into effect from May. greater than 300mm (30cm),’’ Mr Kotsiakos said. This meant even the big chain stores like Kmart and Target would have a duty to inform purchasers of the regulations, even for paddling pools. Mr Kotsiakos said Victoria had taken a weak approach to pool fencing in the past.

‘‘Prior to 1992, pools weren’t required to be fenced at all, then the states all took their own approach to pool fencing.’’ The shire randomly selects pools to inspect. Fences are not required for structures such as bird baths, fish ponds, fountains, dams, water storage tanks or spas that are inside buildings.

Police are seeking information after a shot was fired into a Hastings home at 11.50pm on January 20. A vehicle was driven into the driveway of the Aitape Court home and a shot was fired, causing minor damage to the front of the house. The rifle is believed to be a 12-gauge shot gun. The vehicle then sped away from what police believe was a targeted attack. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Hastings crime investigation unit on 5970 7800.

Drink-driver disqualified A man has been fined $599 and had his licence disqualified for 12 months after being caught with a blood alcohol reading of 0.128 at 8.15am on Friday. The 30 year old

Springvale man had allegedly been out drinking the night before and was on his way to work as a tradesman on the Mornington Peninsula. Police said it was a random intercept on Nepean Highway, Mornington.

Vandals hit new freeway Authorities are hunting for those responsible for vandalism and graffiti on the newly opened Peninsula Link freeway. Last Sunday week dozens of wall panels and signage at the Carrum Downs end of the freeway were tagged with spray paint. Linking Melbourne spokeswoman Gemma Boucher said the authority was working with a Melbourne street artist to organise workshops for a mural to be created at the Pines Flora and Fauna Reserve underpass in coming months. Other vandals caused $15,000 damage to a field device cabinet containing electrical and computer equipment, which operates the Peninsula Link control help phones.

Esplanade reopens to traffic The Esplanade between Bradford Road and Stanley Crescent, Mt Martha, has been reopened to traffic following a landslide on June 4 last year. VicRoads regional director metro south-east Peter Todd said the landslip occurred due to heavy rain and storms.

Sculpture missed IT was probably the shortest tenure for a permanent display in Mornington’s history when a sculpture to mark the town’s 150th anniversary disappeared just days after it was installed. The piece, titled Letters, was officially unveiled outside the Mornington Historical Society’s headquarters on the corner of Main Street and the Esplanade in early December, but within weeks it was gone. A spokeswoman for the society said it was noticed during the ceremony that the sculpture was unstable and it was decided to remove it and reinforce its base. The society last week was hoping the sculpture would be reinstalled in time for the Australia Day weekend. Created by Bittern North artist Gwen Bridges Mulder, Letters depicts a young girl holding letters behind her back and pointing to a vintage letterbox acquired by the society. Ms Bridges Mulder said the sculpture depicted a time when letters were vital in maintaining communication between people. ‘‘I am very pleased with the result,’’ she said.

COMMUNITY REFERENCE GROUP

Soldier’s surprise

Background The R E RossTrust is a philanthropic organisation that has donated over $80 million to the community over the last 40 years. The Trust has owned and operated Hillview Quarries, Dromana, since 1970, and also owns the disused Old Pioneer quarry site in Boundary Rd. The disused Old Pioneer quarry has for many years been included in the EPA-approved Regional Waste Management Plan as the next Mornington Peninsula landfill, following the current Truemans Road, Rye facility.

BY CATHERINE WATSON A CRANBOURNE East resident with strong links to Dromana says it was ‘‘a very delightful surprise’’ to learn that he was to receive the Medal of the Order of Australia. While Ian McKeown did not come from a military family background, he was always interested in soldiering. He joined the army in 1950, with the support of his father but against the wishes of his mother. He was posted to Korea in 1954 at the end of the war, and had another dose of overseas service in Vietnam in 1964-65 with the Australian Army training team, an elite corps that trained and advised the Vietnamese units. Although he had a long spell in the army, the OAM is primarily recognition of his postmilitary career of voluntary service to the community and veterans. Military life is far from his only interest. A long-time member of the Dromana and District Historical Society, he is also researching a book about his great uncle, Ernest McKeown, who went from Dromana in 1900 to fight in the Boer War. The McKeown family of parents and 12

With the Rye landfill approaching closure over the next few years, work has begun to prepare the submission to the authorities for permits for the new landfill site. The new landfill will serve the Peninsula community, and will be operated in a similar way to Hillview Quarries, in that 100% of all profits will go back into the community via the RE Ross Trust’s philanthropic grants programs. These grants are made to disadvantaged and vulnerable people, children’s early years education, and the protection and preservation of flora and fauna. Peninsula Waste Management, a new subsidiary company of the Trust, will manage the landfill.

Community Consultation

PWM is establishing a Community Reference Group, made up of local residents and other interested parties, designed to allow a thorough exchange of information and views, such as: -Receive and review detailed information from PWM regarding its proposal -Provide advice on aspects of the proposal that could be changed to work better for the community -Provide advice on the best way to provide information to the broader community about the proposal -Make recommendations to PWM regarding community engagement activities -Assist with community consultation activities.

G5682533AA-a29Jan©FCNVIC

The Trust wishes to consult with the community as part of Peninsula Waste Management (PWM), setting up this landfill facility.

Members of the community who are interested in nominating for the Community Reference Group should visit the website at:

Award winner: Ian McKeown always wanted to be a soldier. Picture: Wayne Hawkins children settled in Dromana in 1854 and Mr McKeown said the great-aunts, his grandfather’s sisters, ran a large guesthouse named Aringa from the 1880s until the late 1940s. Although he did not grow up in Dromana, he spent summer holidays there from the age of one. Turn to pages 16-17 for full details of other Australia Day honours recipients

AN event which allowed disabled people to enjoy a day of beach games and surfing has been named the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s community event of the year. ‘Let’s Go Surfing’ — the first event held by the Mornington peninsula branch of the Disabled Surfers Association — was attended by 18 people with a range of disabilities and 180 volunteers, including local school children, at the Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club on March 17. The DSA provided wet suits and an allterrain wheelchair with balloon wheels to take the participants across the sand and down to the water’s edge where volunteers were waiting with a surf board and formed a cordon to guide the surf board and rider to and from the waves. Accepting the award for the DSA, Ash Gardner thanked the shire for its support. He said he strongly believed in having a go, helping mates, having a laugh and giving everyone a fair go. ‘‘I think our event represents that.’’ Due to the success of ‘Let’s Go Surfing’, two more events will be held at Point Leo on

teeing rates revenue, the existence of effective alternative payment strategies, and the severe impact of legal action on disadvantaged ratepayers. In the past eight years, the number of people the Mornington Peninsula Shire has sued to recover unpaid rates has jumped from 59 in 2003-04 to 229 in 2010-11. This represents 0.25 per cent of the shire’s rate base of 95,000 properties. However, communications manager Todd Trimble said legal action was only taken when a ratepayer ignored all notices and did not make contact with the council, and that these were often repeat offenders. Mr Trimble said once the final payment date of February 15 had passed, the council would issue a ‘‘friendly’’ overdue notice, without interest, allowing a further seven days for payment. Following that, the council would charge interest and issue a final notice, giving an additional seven days. If the rates remained unpaid, letters of demand were issued through a debt collection agency. He said all outstanding accounts were individually reviewed before proceeding with any legal action. — Lee Opitz

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council took legal action against 229 property owners over unpaid rates in the 2010-11 financial year. The figures were released in the Council Debt Collection: Alternatives to Suing report by the Federation of Community Legal Centres and Footscray Community Legal Centre. While substantial, Mornington’s figure was far below Frankston which sought payment from 442 households and the City of Casey (760). The report showed that combined, the state’s councils sue about 6000 people a year in the Magistrates Court for unpaid rates. The number of claims has tripled over the past eight years, and 15 of the court’s top 25 most prolific litigators for debt claims under $10,000 are councils. The report found that legal costs and court fees for small debt matters typically exceed $650 and often make up a significant proportion of the original debt of unpaid rates and, in some cases, exceed them. It concluded Victorian local councils were rushing unfairly to legal action to recover unpaid rates despite legal protection guaran-

Residents lauded for while when she successfully nurses an animal back to health and releases it back into the wild. ‘‘It’s all about alleviating their pain and distress. And when you set them free to where they came, that’s the best bit of all.’’

A diverse bunch of Frankston and Mornington Day honours. The Weekly team asked Pictures by Gary Sissons

Frank Roberts, Mt Martha OAM for service to community health, particularly through patient support services

Jennifer Bryant, Tyabb Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for service to wildlife conservation Jennifer Bryant smiles as she points out her ‘‘war wounds’’ — the scars and tooth marks she has acquired during years of native wildlife rescues. ‘‘I call them my war wounds. I still climb trees to get koalas down and this tooth mark was from a koala which bit me through the bag when I was carrying it down. They just get frightened — these things happen,’’ she says matter-of-factly. The 59-year-old resident lives on a sprawling 4.45-hectare property with partner James Walker that’s home to their two toy poodles, two pet sheep, nine miniature ponies and two cats. More unusually, Ms Bryant also cares for injured koalas, possums, kangaroos and birds at the Koala Rescue and Rehabilitation Hospital at the property, with her injured charges also coming from other parts of the peninsula, including Red Hill, Arthurs Seat, Dromana, Rye and Rosebud. A wildlife carer since the 1970s, Ms Bryant estimates the animals she nurtures have a 50 per cent survival rate as so many arrive with horrific injuries and need to be euthanised. She believes the koala population in her area is drastically falling as humans encroach on the marsupials’ territory. ‘‘It’s too populated for them . . . it’s a massacre out there. In a decade there may be none left in the area.’’ While koalas tend to be injured by cars, kangaroos often receive horrific injuries after becoming entangled in wire fences. Ms Bryant pays to keep the facility running herself, with the assistance of donations from the public and the Brigette Bardot Foundation. The animal lover says the cost is all worth[ 16 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

After suffering a brain hemorrhage in 1992, Frank Roberts asked doctors at The Alfred hospital what he could do to help them. ‘‘I could have lost my life, but as a result of the amazing treatment I received, I recovered. The doctors were taken aback when I asked what I could do to repay the favour but asked if I could help set up a support service for neurosurgery patients.’’ He formed the Neurosurgery Patient Support Service, along with other ex-patient volunteers at the hospital, and was convener of the group from 1994-2010. Through the support service, Mr Roberts and a dedicated group of volunteers went to the hospital and sat at the bedsides of people recovering from neurosurgery. They had conversations with patients and sometimes simply provided company for the patients and family members. ‘‘It does a lot of good for their recovery to have someone to talk to,’’ Mr Roberts says. ‘‘I found it a thoroughly worthwhile thing to do, having

director until last year. ‘‘It is great to really be able to put something back into the community and help people in need. ‘‘There is a terrible amount of sickness out there and it is important that we provide for people in ill health.’’ Mr Roberts feels honoured to have received the award. ‘‘With anything you do in life you don’t expect recognition but it is a very nice thing to have happen.’’

Gillian Nikakis, Mornington OAM for service to nursing through mental health support programs

She says working with people who have been abused is extremely rewarding. ‘‘Once they start drawing and tapping back into those feelings, often their lives open up. Many clients have been bottling up these emotions for many years and it becomes very draining, to the point where it stops them from doing certain things in their lives. When they learn to let it go, it frees them and many are able to return to study, complete university degrees and achieve things they had never been able to before.’’ Mrs Nikakis says helping people achieve their goals is what her work is all about. ‘‘I have worked with some really brave people, and I feel I have an obligation to them, to inform the community of the enormity of the crimes that have come to my attention. The extent of institutional and clergy abuse in our community is beginning to come to the surface but there is a long way to go in other areas. ‘‘There are a lot of people more deserving of an Australia Day award than me, but I am most honoured to receive it.’’

been through it myself. It is an experience the doctors don’t have. It is marvellous to see people make a full recovery.’’ Mr Roberts also joined the foundation board of the Royal District Nursing Service in 1997 and was there until 2004. After moving to Mt Martha, he was asked to join the Peninsula Home Hospice board in 2008 and remained a

A keen interest in mental health and a passion for helping people has gained nurse and therapist Gillian Nikakis an Australia Day award. One of her greatest achievements was putting together an exhibition of artwork by people who had experienced sexual abuse and trauma. The exhibition, which showcased more than 400 pieces of art, ran alongside an international conference on trauma and abuse. ‘‘Clients can often draw things that they cannot speak about, and seeing their work on paper helps them acknowledge what has happened to them, and helps the healing to begin. It also helps them to see it was not their fault and to break through the wall of silence which surrounds abuse,’’ she says. Mrs Nikakis’ passion for painting and drawing came from her art teacher Dorothy Braund, who donated money towards the exhibition.


making a difference Peninsula residents have received Australia these achievers what makes them tick. and Daryl Gordon

Ms Wilson, who has an honorary PhD from RMIT University, credited hard work and a great upbringing to her success. She says she is honoured to accept the award for herself, her family and also for Hastings, where she grew up. ‘‘Hastings was the most fabulous town to grow up in, we had rabbits, fish and we could go wandering wherever we wanted as long as we were home for dinner. Though we were very poor we had a really happy, healthy childhood.’’ She praises her mother, who still lives in Hastings, as a pillar of strength and a great role model. ‘‘She brought us five kids up on her own and she did a really good job. She worked in a fish and chip shop to support the family.’’ Ms Wilson had to leave school at 15 ‘‘because I had holes in my shoes and mum couldn’t afford new ones’’. She returned to complete night school six years later and achieved her law degree. As health commissioner, Ms Wilson was involved in resolving disputes and exposing people who had misled community members for financial gain. In 2001 she helped conduct an investigation into the Royal Melbourne Hospital about allegations of night shift nurses and their treatment of patients, which led to many positive changes at the hospital. ‘‘I have been involved in cases where babies have died unnecessarily at hospitals and surgery that has gone wrong. What I saw was a lot of health professionals who tried their best but have made a mistake. Sometimes things will go wrong but how people are treated and what we learn from our mistakes is important so that we don’t repeat them. ‘‘The aim is always to improve the quality of health services.’’ Ms Wilson has also been involved with the Beacon Foundation at Western Port Secondary College, a national non-profit organisation which works with secondary schools across Australia to encourage students to stay in school or choose a positive pathway into employment, further education or training. Ms Wilson says she still has plenty left to achieve in the health sector, despite no longer being the health commissioner. ‘‘I would like to see a negative licensing scheme introduced to deal with unregistered health providers. The scheme would see a code of conduct drawn up and if health professionals breach it, they will be fined or go to jail.’’ The scheme is being considered by the Victorian health minister.

saved many who were experiencing total despair,’’ Dr Murphy says. Mr Ardley has received other awards, including Mornington Peninsula Shire citizen of the year, the Tattersall’s award for enterprise and achievement, and a Pride of Australia. He and wife Debbie have also fostered many disadvantaged children.

Russell Ardley, Mornington OAM for service to youth through Mornington Peninsula Youth Enterprises For almost two decades, Russell Ardley transformed the lives of young people at the MPYE nursery, which he created. Inspired by his son, Mr Ardley created an alternative space for young people who struggled in the traditional school setting through providing self-esteem, a sense of ownership and practical qualifications. ‘‘I’m a bit nervous about getting the award. I’m excited too. I actually never ever thought I’d deserve something like that. I’m sure there are people out there much more deserving than me. I didn’t start this for anything like that. I just wanted to help people but if this helps me help people, then good.’’ Mr Ardley recently finished up at MPYE and is embarking on a new mission to help young people at the Fight 4 Life youth club in Rosebud West, started by volunteer youth worker Nick Burbounis. ‘‘I’m really looking forward to working with Fight 4 Life, they are good people. I think we’re going to marry together really well. In a way Nick and I are the same — we’re off beat,’’ Mr Ardley says. Peninsula resident John Murphy has been a big supporter of both groups for many years. ‘‘Not only did Russell transform the lives of hundreds of young people over the years, he

his three daughters, for putting up with the time he spent working. ‘‘It’s a complete crew effort, you get a good camaraderie with the people you are working with. Volunteers are just wired differently.’’

David Wright, Flinders OAM for service to the visual arts using the medium of stained glass

Peter Mill, Frankston OAM for service to the community, particularly in the field of radio communications

Peter Mill trained as a radio technician in the 1980s, then joined Victoria Police. When they no longer required radio technicians, he worked his way up through the ranks. Mr Mill is now working as a sergeant in Moorabin but uses the skills he learnt in the police force to volunteer his spare time to consulting and installing radio communications equipment for St John Ambulance. He has been involved in setting up some of the biggest and most complex communication systems at events and venues, including the Ash Wednesday fires, Grand Prix, World Youth Day and the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Mr Mill says police and paramedics used to sit on the boundary line and receive messages, passed through the crowd, about where help was needed. ‘‘Now, the doctors say the MCG is the best place to have a heart attack in the world.’’ Mr Mill’s work ensures paramedics treat their patients in the fastest possible time. ‘‘The best doctors in the world can be sitting around but if they don’t know about their jobs they can’t save anyone. It’s great to be able to help,’’ he says. Extremely modest about the award, Mr Mill was quick to credit the work of other St John volunteers and his supportive family, including

In high school David Wright was asked to create a fake stained glass window for a production set and thought afterwards it would be fun to try and create the real thing. With the support of a good art teacher, Mr Wright started an artistic adventure which would see him create intricate works of art, sometimes taking years, for buildings including Queen’s College — the University of Melbourne, Temple Beth Israel, new Parliament House and St Peter’s Cathedral in Adelaide. Mr Wright’s work is intricate — as well as cutting the glass he places glass in moulds and into the kiln to create textures in a similar style to indigenous art pieces. He feels honoured to receive the award. ‘‘After a long working life it is really nice to get that recognition.’’ Speaking at his Flinders studio, Mr Wright

describes his work as challenging and labour intensive but always interesting and a pleasure. He is working on eight windows for Ballarat Grammar School, which include the theme of looking after the planet. ‘‘It is lovely that I get to come to work and make little shells and krill,’’ he laughs.

ormer Split Enz frontman Tim Finn will perform at the Between the Bays festival at Penbank School next month. “I’ve been doing a few of these festival shows over the past few years,’’ Finn said from his Auckland home. ‘‘Last summer I did The Falls. I love them, you get a range of ages and probably half the crowd has never seen me, so I kind of reach out with songs that they are going to click with. ‘‘It’s a pretty crowd-friendly set. I do songs from Split Enz, Woodface, Big Canoe — most of the songs are well known.’’ The numbers will include One Step Ahead, Poor Boy, Six Months in a

Leaky Boat and I See Red. “It just becomes an amazing connection between me and the crowd. They love it and I love it. And I throw in a few songs that I’m just enjoying playing or reinventing at the moment.’’ Finn says with a ninth solo album completed, a fresh chapter is starting. ‘‘I think my solo albums are behind me and I’m really interested now in theatre. I did the Poor Boy show in Melbourne and Sydney with director Simon Phillips and Guy Pearce onstage. That all gave me a real taste for it. I’m collaborating with a couple of different writers at the moment, on some theatre shows. One is about

identity of place, family and country, another one is a straight-up musical.’’ The diverse musician has also hit the right note on a movie soundtrack. One of his songs, Winter Light, was included on the Narnia soundtrack. “I didn’t pitch for Narnia, particularly. I told my publisher in the US to have a go. It was a new publisher and a new deal so I thought now is the time to get him working.’’ Finn will join The Hoodoo Gurus, James Reyne, Troy Cassar-Daley and Combo La Revelacion with The Latino Dancers at Between The Bays, Penbank School, Moorooduc on Saturday, February 23.

Delightful, inside and out underground concrete tank, plus full irrigation and sprinklers, fed from the centrally located bore. An executor’s auction, the property, which has been in the same family for more than 30 years, must be sold on the day.

three-hole golf course, abundant bird life, the smell of the bush, the ornamental lake and a sweeping circular driveway add appeal to this well loved family home. You will feel the trials of city life evaporate as you drive down the meandering concrete driveway. A huge brick-veneer residence of almost 30 squares awaits with four or five bedrooms, two bathrooms, three or four living areas, a double carport under roof line and a wine cellar. There is a brick machine shed with workshop, smokehouse and service bay, undulating lawns and abundant water from a 20,000-litre

Red Hill upends Seaford to break into top four BY MORGAN COLE RED Hill has made its way into the top four, defeating the Seaford Tigers in their MPCA Sub District Shield match on Saturday. Red Hill set a modest tally on the first day of play, making just 143. Captain-coach Simon Dart was keen to back up his side’s Twenty20 win over Sorrento. ‘‘The first wicket of the day was paramount,’’ Dart said. ‘‘We were lucky enough to get that early wicket. It was really important that we backed up that win against Sorrento in the two-day format.’’ Seaford started the day four wickets down, giving Red Hill plenty of leeway to set aggressive fields. Red Hill bowler Glenn Collett was moving the ball both ways in taking 4-20 in his 13 overs. Dart was also dangerous, taking 3-21. Tigers middle order Batsman Tom Burgdorf did his best to keep his side afloat, making 29 runs before being dismissed by Collett. ‘‘We bowled pretty consistently throughout the whole day,’’ Dart said.

‘‘We created a lot of opportunities for ourselves and we took them.’’ The Seaford tail offered some resistance but were all out by the early afternoon after just 44 overs. In his first appearance in the first XI this season Mark Carroll was the second-highest contributor with 11 runs. Red Hill went back in to bat for a second innings with Dart keen on sharpening up his side for the remaining rounds and his side’s coming Twenty20 grand final. ‘‘We mixed up the order a little bit, gave some guys some extra exposure out there,’’ Dart said. ‘‘There are some guys that haven’t spent a lot of time batting and we want to give them as much exposure as we can.’’ In other Sub District Shield matches, Tyabb just held on to win against Skye by four runs. Elsewhere, Carrum Downs defeated French Island. Balnarring defeated first-placed Rosebud by 10 runs, Balnarring bowler Jake Cook having a day out with 7-71. Pearcedale spoiled Tootgarook’s 50-year celebrations with an easy win.

Out of the hat Sorrento star Andrew King had a day out on Saturday. The Sharks paceman cleaned up the Ballam Park tail, along the way claiming a hat-trick. The spearhead finished with 12 wickets for the match to help the Sharks get home. For more MPCA reports turn to page 39.

Cup pushing for group status BY BRAD McGRATH THE Melbourne Racing Club will attempt to have the Mornington Cup upgraded to group 3 status for next year. The listed race will be run on February 13 with another bumper field expected with several international raiders set to take the carrot of automatic entry into October’s Caulfield Cup. The Mornington Cup has prize money of $350,000 this year which is the minimum for a group race in Australia. Melbourne Racing Club’s general manager of commercial marketing and racing Fraser Bayne said he was confident the Mornington Cup would again attract a strong field and push its case for an upgrade. He said the 2400-metre feature would be

brought before the Australian Pattern Committee later this year when a decision would be made. ‘‘If we get another good field we’ll certainly be knocking on the door of being upgraded to a group 3,’’ Bayne said. ‘‘It is judged on things like horses going on to do well in group races that have placed in the Mornington Cup. ‘‘In the past couple of years horses in the Mornington Cup have gone on to do well.’’ The Mornington Cup also fits into a growing push to upgrade some middle distance and staying races into group races with a disproportionate number of Australia’s group races catering for sprinters. There has been a call for a $1 million middledistance race in the spring and autumn which would guarantee the top three placegetters auto-

matic entry into the Melbourne Cup and Caulfield cups. This year, the Mornington Cup meeting has its biggest ever prize pool with the day boasting more than $1 million in prize money across the 10-race card. Bayne said marquee and corporate sales had been strong over the past few weeks with the club hopeful more than 10,000 people would attend one of the biggest social days on the Mornington calendar. ‘‘It will depend on the weather. If it’s a nice day people will come out and it if it’s raining or overcast people will stay in,’’ he said. Mornington Cup day also boasts the $250,000 2YO Inglis Premier (1200m), the $120,000 Hareeba Stakes (12oom) and the $70,000 final of the Mornington Mitavite Summer Challenge (1600m).

Tooters celebrate 50 years of cricket TOOTGAROOK Cricket Club celebrated its 50th anniversary on Sunday. The proud Mornington Peninsula club held a dinner at the Rosebud Country Club with many past officials and players travelling from around the country. The function featured former Australian player Rodney Hogg as its guest speaker with several other club greats also telling stories. Tootgarook president Jason Lane said the club existed because of the dedicated and thoughtful people that ran it in the past. ‘‘It’s probably just the fact that the people within the club pass on the knowledge to the next generation,’’ he said. ‘‘We’re probably one of the few clubs that don’t have a football club. ‘‘Through the hard times we’ve been able to keep the cricket club alive.’’ Club legends Tom and Kevin Rickard were some notable names to attend, along with current great and 10-times club champion Paul Stevenson. In 1963, Eddie Rickard and Herb Clements

The club relocated to Quinns Park, which is now home to Tootgarook Primary School, before

the shire council developed Truemans Road where the club is now entrenched. Lane said the club was in a strong position with four senior teams and four junior teams playing in the MPCA this year. — Brad McGrath

Waves add to attack PENINSULA Waves will have an even more potent attack this season with Sarah Hogan joining the Victorian Netball League club. Hogan joins the Waves from fellow VNL club North East Blaze where she was a regular with the mid-table outfit. Waves coach Claire Houben said Hogan would give them another option alongside star goal shooter Mwai Kumwenda and Stacie Proctor. ‘‘She’s a young goaler from the Blaze, she’s very quick on the court and very accurate in her goaling,’’ she said. ‘‘It gives us a bit more depth and having the tall timber there always helps.’’ The Waves are also set to give several youngsters an opportunity throughout the pre-season tournament which begins on February 6. Several places on the Waves roster have opened up, with Kellie and Emma Sommerville departing the club because of university and travel commitments. But the signs have been positive, with fitness coach Nathan Bonney putting the team through a rigorous pre-season campaign and Kumwenda set to arrive from Malawai before the pre-season tournament. ‘‘The pre-season has been going really well and I’m happy with how the girls are committing themselves,’’ Houben said. ‘‘Nathan got such good results last year and I think he is just carrying on from there.’’ Houben said she wouldn’t be making wholesale changes with the championship line-up after taking the reins from Robynn Pym. ‘‘I think I will carry on from where Robynn left off because the team was so successful but as I mentioned we have lost the Sommerville girls so there will be a few changes.’’ The Waves were just one win away from a grand final appearance last year. — Brad McGrath

Mounties serve notice as genuine finals threat BY MORGAN COLE

MT ELIZA has rejoined the winners’ list keeping itself firmly in the hunt for finals, crushing Heatherhill by 110 runs in their MPCA Provincial Shield match on Saturday. The Mounties welcomed the return of coach Jason Mathers and gun allrounder Justin Grant to their first XI after the pair were coaching and playing for Victoria Country in Bundaberg. Heatherhill was chasing a daunting 271 and felt the full sting of the Mounties’ attack early on with Justin Savio taking the wicket of Heatherhill opener Dean Shaw (4). The wickets continued to fall with John Hille jnr (2) and Brett Maxwell (2) both dismissed cheaply, Heatherhill finding themselves at a dangerous 3-17. ‘‘We got a couple of wickets early on which put them on the back foot,’’ Mathers said. Heatherhill managed to stop the slide with captain Matt Meagher (49)

forming a lengthy partnership with opener Christian Heath (53). In-form all-rounder Grant got the breakthrough wicket removing Meagher. Christian Heath batted for most of the day, eventually being felled by second gamer Paul Coldrey, his first wicket playing in the first XI. Scott Creffield continued his sharp run of form bowling nine maidens from his 15 overs, the paceman taking two wickets helping guide the Mounties to victory. ‘‘He bowled really tight and he got a bit of movement,’’ Mathers said. Mathers was pleased with the win and looking forward to the test ahead of his team as they fight for a place in the finals. Mt Eliza faces off against the experienced reigning premiers Baxter this Saturday. ‘‘We have to keep playing at our best if we want to play finals,’’ Mathers said. Our destiny is very much in our own hands these are sides you have to beat if you want to get in [to finals].’’

In other Provincial Shield matches, Rye upset Baxter by 39, Rhys Wynne applying plenty of pressure on the veteran Baxter side bowling 6-66. Peninsula Old Boys kept their finals chances alive with a crushing win over Crib Point. Long Island made short work of Mount Martha. Moorooduc was unable to chase down the intimidating 294 set by Mornington, the bulldogs bowling them all out for 160. Sorrento steamrolled Ballam Park with an outright win firming its grip on the top of the ladder. Sorrento Bowler Andrew King had a day to remember finishing with 12 wickets, taking five in the first innings including a hat-trick to clear the last three batsman, and another seven in the second innings. This Sunday Red Hill will play off against Baden Powell in the Twenty20 Jack Peacock Cup final with the venue likely to be Alexandra Park, Mornington.

Dogged Seaford fights to the end but falls to Main Ridge target, Seaford pushed Main Ridge right to the end, finishing on 350. Opener Clint Cleef was at his absolute best making 127, combining with Nick Simpfendorfer to form the partnership that kick started Seaford’s innings. After losing Simpfendorfer (89) from a Glen Wyatt delivery, Damien Lawrence (73) came and proved equally as damaging for the Tigers. Cleef formed another long-term partnership

with Lawrence as Seaford crept closer to the Main Ridge tally. The breakthrough finally came with Main Ridge bowler Daniel Jennings getting the better of Cleef to claim one of his five wickets for the day. Once Cleef was removed, Main Ridge regained the ascendancy, slowing the Seaford run rate right down. Seaford’s tail offered some resistance with Damien Lawrence leading the way. He refused to

back down but despite his best efforts Main Ridge was determined to not give up its lead. In other District Shield matches, Baden Powell easily accounted for Frankston YCW. Hastings defeated Boneo by 61 runs. Langwarrin won comfortably over Carrum. The Pines held on to defeat a late surging Delacombe Park to win by 16. Somerville defeated Flinders by 24. — Morgan Cole

MAIN Ridge narrowly held off a spirited Seaford to win by 12 runs in their MPCA District shield match on Saturday. The Tigers seemed set to go down heavily chasing 362 and losing two early wickets. Seaford appeared to be in plenty of trouble. Scott Manders and Ryan McQueen both lost their wickets before they could trouble the scorecard. Despite the rocky start and the intimidating
