5973 6424 or email: team@mpnews.com.au www.mpnews.com.au Telling tales: Simon White’s artistic talents are helping to keep history alive on the Mornington Peninsula. Picture: Yanni

Western Port history goes to the wall A STUNNING artistic depiction of Western Port’s maritime past is turning heads at Hastings. It took renowned Mornington Peninsula artist Simon White two weeks to complete the High St mural, but months to research the region’s rich history, speak to key characters and plan how best to tell the tale in images. The seven images tell the region’s fascinating narrative from 1860 to today, and reveal Mr White’s passion for connecting with history through art. “As we all rushed around preparing for Christmas and all the festivities, we have been intrigued as we watched a magnificent mural being painted in Hastings on the wall of the walkway between Woolworths carpark and High St,” Hastings MP Neale Burgess said. “The artist has skilfully depicted highlights of the history of Hastings. It is a beautiful mural.” Mr White, who also painted the mural of the original Red Hill Railway line at the entrance to The Epicurean restaurant, created the mural in collaboration with students from Western Port Secondary College, and was inspired by images from the collection of the Hastings and Western Port Historical Society. The mural is part of the Hastings Laneway improvements program and was commissioned by Mornington Peninsula Shire for the wall of Terry White Chemist. Liz Bell

Beaches top to call peninsula home Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au BEACHES, “country feel”, absence of high rise development, public open spaces and nature reserves are top of the list when it comes to what makes the Mornington Peninsula a “special” place to live. These findings are the first results of an analysis of responses to an online survey conducted by the self-described community advocacy organisation, Peninsula Speaks.

Further analysis of the “Looking Forward – Mornington Peninsula 2030” survey taken in the latter part of 2016 showed 70 per cent of respondents believe “preserving the unique character rather than economic growth (10 per cent) is vital”, organiser Peter Avery said. “Overwhelmingly, responses to the primary question ‘What makes it special to live on the Mornington Peninsula?’ nominated beaches, country feel, absence of high rise development, public open spaces and nature reserves,”

Mr Avery said. “Respondents were then requested to indicate changes that were getting worse, with congestion on the roads including tourism, and protection of green wedge zoned areas as the two issues of main concern. “This coincides with Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors generally allowing incremental incursions into green wedge areas solely in the interest of tourism and jobs - which in most cases are via 457 visas.” At their final meeting for 2016 shire

councillors called for a report which could lead to the formation of a planning committee so they can be prebriefed on planning matters before they are debated at public meetings. The report is due in March. “We don’t have the ability to have a planning committee because even a notice of motion is rejected by the CEO when I try to raise this issue,” Cr David Gill said at the November meeting. Doubts about the need for such a committee were voiced by CEO Carl

Cowie who asked “what in particular is broken for council that requires such a planning committee”. Cr Gill said democratically-elected councillors “do not have enough time” at public council meetings to discuss town planning matters and any help from council officers to set aside more time for planning discussions would be beneficial. Meanwhile, late last year council gave the go ahead to a brewery being built on green wedge land at Fingal. Continued Page 4

Two per cent cap for rates COUNCIL rates rises will be capped at two per cent for the 2017/18 financial year as part of the state government’s policy to limit any rises to the rate of inflation. The consumer price index (CPI) was forecast to be two per cent by the Victorian Department of Treasury and Finance. Local Government Minister Natalie Hutchins decided not to accept advice from the Essential Services Commission recommending a cap of 2.15 per cent for municipalities across Victoria. The Labor state government pledged to cap rates before Premier Daniel Andrews won office at the 2014 election in a policy it dubbed “Fair Go Rates”. “In the decade before we introduced Fair Go Rates, council rates increased by an average of 6 per cent per annum. This has now stopped, making things fairer for ratepayers,” Ms Hutchins said in a statement. “Victorians have told us they want more of a say in council decision-making, and now is the time for councils to speak with their communities about their budgets for next year.” Mornington Peninsula Shire says it will continue to review services to deliver “value-for-money” programs and projects “within its funding capacity”. Shire chief financial officer Matthew Green said council “has already introduced measures, including organisational reviews and restructures

and purchasing efficiencies to operate within the state government’s rate cap”. “Mornington Peninsula Shire’s rates remain among the lowest in the state, and the shire will ensure its services and community infrastructure is delivered in a financially-responsible manner,” Mr Green said. Councils across Victoria can apply to the Essential Services Commission for exemptions from the rate cap if it can be proven rate rises above inflation are needed for specific circumstances. “Council is yet to consider whether it will apply to the Essential Services Commission for a variation to the rate cap,” Mr Green said. He said council had abolished the $180 municipal charge last year. The shire dropped the municipal charge and introduced a waste service charge which it said at the time would ensure a “fairer redistribution of the rate burden”. The then mayor Cr Graham Pittock said the $193 a property waste charge would raise $19 million, an amount that “fully recovers the cost of collection and disposal of refuse”. The shire’s 2016/17 income was put at just over $214 million. The budget also shows shire staffing costs will rise by $3.067 million to $70.094 million – about 30 per cent of total expenditure.

This year’s rally will see the inaugural Brighton to Mornington Rally, with vehicles leaving Park St, Brighton, at 9am for the trip to Mornington where they will be join the public display.

Western Port News 10 January 2017


The drone factor in wildlife protection Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au REGULATIONS designed to keep boats and jet skis away from seals, whales and dolphins have been extended to include one of the latest gadgets to take off – drones. While jet skis must not be closer than 300 metres from whales and dolphins and boats 100 metres away from dolphins and 200 metres from whales drones are prohibited from flying directly over, approaching head on or landing on the water near marine wildlife. Land and sea patrols the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) are on the lookout for breaches of the regulations which can attract $233 on the spot fines or penalties up to $3109 if the matter goes to court. DELWP program manager Craig Woodbridge said the patrols were being carried out over the whole bay, with particular attention being given to waters between Blairgowrie and Mornington. “These patrols will ensure the safety and well-being of the bay’s protected inhabitants such as dolphins and seals, while also educating people on the safe and responsible use of our waterways,” Mr Woodbridge said. “Boat and jet-ski operators in particular should be aware of their responsibility to take care around marine mammals.” He said the proliferation of recreational users on the water “can disturb the behavioural patterns of dolphins and other species”.

Patrols are being made to ensure boats and other craft keep their distance from seals, whales and dolphins, while on land Melissa Varney (right) Lee French (below right) have signed on as seasonal rangers with Parks Victoria.

Boat speeds near dolphins, whales or seals should five knots “and do not approach the animal. Avoid any sudden changes in speed or direction, and move away if the animal shows any sign of disturbance such as swimming away or diving and remaining at depth”. Mr Woodbridge said people and vessels must stay at least five metres away from seals on man-made structures.

On land, Parks Victoria has added three “seasonal rangers” to its team on the Mornington Peninsula. Seasonal rangers help permanent staff with peak visitor management, threatened species monitoring, event support, pest plant control, track and facilities maintenance and providing visitor interpretation and education programs. Aaron Lee, back for a second season at Point Nepean National Park, has a

background in fisheries and natural resource management. Based in Mornington Peninsula National Park, Lee French’s role is all about protecting the threatened hooded plover. His day entails walking the beaches with volunteer friends’ groups monitoring the shorebirds and educating park visitors. Melissa Varney is helping deliver the junior ranger education program at

Arthurs Seat State Park and Devilbend Natural Features Reserve. “Without summer staff, managing the national parks in light of the peak holiday use would be difficult,” area chief ranger Kris Rowe said. For information on regulations go to www.delwp.vic.gov.au or call 136 186. To report sick, injured or distressed marine wildlife call 1300 245 678.

Surf no barrier for disabled at Pt Leo THE Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula will be holding its first event for 2017 at Point Leo on Saturday (14 January). As with past events the organisers expect hundreds of volunteers will be on hand to help more than 100 people with disabilities enjoy a day at the beach and in the surf. A new hoist-sling will be trialled to make it easier and more comfortable when transferring surfers from their wheelchairs. The DSAMP has also worked over the past year with Mornington Peninsula Shire and Mt Martha Lifesaving Club to provide matting at Mt Martha beach which allows wheelchair access to the sand as well as providing a widetyred wheelchair for use from the club. The next major project is to build a viewing platform and wheelchair access to the beach at Point Leo. The branch has also been working with a committee in South Gippsland to hold surfing for disabled days at Inverloch, with a trial scheduled for Saturday 11 February. A second event will be held at Point Leo on Saturday 4 March. Details for volunteers who want to help at Point Leo on Saturday are at disabledsurfers. org/vic/morning-peninsula-branch, email infodsamp@gmail.com. The event runs 11am-3pm with registrations being taken from 10am.

BLUESCOPE Steel is expanding, with work started on upgrading and restarting a metal coating line controversially closed in 2011 and more than 200 positions shed as part of a restructure. The upgrade has already boosted employment at the Western Port site, with BlueScope confirming that the “recruitment process� was being finalised, with more than 100 new jobs created in the past year. At the time of the 2011 closure, BlueScope was being hammered by a strong Australian dollar, rising iron ore and coking coal prices, weakening demand and competition from cheaper Chinese steel.

But BlueScope spokeswoman Jill Gregory told The News on Monday (9 January) that the company had recently embraced “lean manufacturing principles� aimed at cutting “waste� in all forms. She said the cost cutting measures had worked and improved international competiveness along with BlueScope’s market share in the competitive Australian market. Metal coating line 5 will be upgraded to produce Zincalume steel for the Australian market and will recommence operations in September. In addition, Western Port had also recently announced the increase in use of its number 2 paint line from five to seven days a week. Liz Bell

ANOTHER of the Mornington Peninsula’s historic seaside mansions, Sorrento’s Nee Morna, is being offered for sale for only the second time in more than 100 years. The sale of the largest residential landholding on the southern peninsula coast is expected to fetch $20 million-plus, and comes just months after part of the former Moondah estate in Mt Eliza sold for close to $40 million. CBRE, the agents who sold the Kunyung Rd property, has been appointed to sell the 3106 – 3118 Point Nepean Rd property on behalf of the Lipe family – headed by New York-based banker, Alex Lipe. CBRE expects the property – on four separate titles – to sell for more than $20 million. The land has views of Sorrento and Port Phillip. Expressions of interest in Nee Morna close 3pm 28 February.

Shire’s sun power MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire will install rooftop solar systems on 71 of its buildings.

Police patrol Arrest after drugs, weapons find

Sunday, 8 January, in Wooley’s Rd, Crib Point, with no number plates.

POLICE arrested a 24-year-old man in Pearcedale in the early hours of Friday (6 January) after drugs, drugs paraphernalia and weapons were found in a stolen vehicle. Cranbourne police made the discovery when they intercepted a vehicle with false number plates in a car park off Baxter-Tooradin Rd about 1.15am. Police found drugs including methamphetamine and cannabis, as well as stolen registration plates and two knives.

Stolen car

Divers with cross purpose THOUSANDS of people flocked to the Rye pier on Friday to join in the Blessing of the Waters celebration, and to escape the 33-degree heat in the cool waters of Port Phillip. The ceremony is held every year at Rye by followers of the Greek Orthodox faith to celebrate Epiphany Day and the baptism of Jesus. Divers of different ages and en-

ergy levels dived off the pier after a wooden cross was blessed by the Very Reverand Elefterios Tatsis before being tossed into the bay. Stelios Kardas, 37, from Melbourne, was first to the cross this year. Participants at a similar event at Frankston were asked to sign a waiver acknowledging the illness risk involved in diving into possibly polluted

waters after flash flooding swept waste into Port Phillip last week. Swimmers were advised to thoroughly shower straight afterwards by Coast Guard volunteers at the group’s clubhouse. The holy cross is believed to bring health, guidance and good fortune to those who retrieve it, and their families, for the year ahead.

A STOLEN car that sped from a booze bus in Western Port Highway, Somerville, two weeks before Christmas was found burnt out in Crib Point on the weekend. The red 1996 BMW sedan was taken from outside a house in Fulton Rd, Mt Eliza, on 10 December. The car was seen at a police roadside breath testing point in Somerville eight days later but, after initially pulling over when motioned by police to stop, the driver sped up and drove off erratically. Detective Senior Sergeant Alan Paxton from Mornington Peninsula CIU said the driver grabbed the hand of the police officer before speeding off, causing a minor injury to the officer. The car was bearing stolen South Australian number plates, and the driver was described as caucasion, aged in his mid-30s, chubby with brown or ginger hair. The vehicle was found burnt out on

Stolen plates UP to three number plates are stolen from cars on the Mornington Peninsula every week by people planning to commit crimes and steal petrol, according to police. The number plate thefts has prompted police to urge car owners to change to one-way, anti-theft number plate screws, and keep cars in garages where possible. Detective Senior Sergeant Alan Paxton from Mornington Peninsula CIU said two to three number plates are stolen from cars on the peninsula weekly, and was a major concern for police and car owners. “It is a major inconvenience for car owners, as they can’t drive the car without a number plate and it is unlikely they will have the cost covered by insurance,” he said. “It’s also a big problem for police as it is likely that the plates will be used to steal petrol or commit crimes.” Detective Paxton said people who had their number plates stolen should report the theft immediately. People driving without number plates could be fined $144 and be given three demerit points.

Vet burgled A WINDOW was forced open to the Mt Martha Vet Clinic, Langrigg Av, and a small amount of money taken last Thursday night. The theft occurred between 7.45 pm on Thursday 5 January and discovered at 8.15 the next morning. Nothing else was stolen.

A GROUP of Frankston and Mornington Peninsula residents are making a difference to the lives of leprosy sufferers around the globe, and are inviting others to join the cause. The Peninsula Leprosy Mission Support Group, a group of 12 people from around the peninsula, has raised more than $12,500 this year, beating its target and fully funding four projects in India, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and Nepal. Hastings member Don Johnston, who joined the group in 2008, said he was moved to tears when he and fellow members travelled to Nepal and saw the suffering and social rejection of leprosy sufferers. “In Australia a lot of people don’t realise it is still such a huge problem, but it’s a disease that’s still causing huge problems and causing severe amputations and other health problems,� he said. “When you visit places away from the tourist crowds you see that it is devastating,� he said. Mr Johnston said the peninsula group raised money by holding a range of social functions,

including restaurant nights, quiz competitions and movie sessions, throughout the year. The money raised will fund training programs for health workers, surgery and health care, rehabilitation and medicine. “You can cure leprosy with two weeks of treatment, but there are major long-term rehabilitation and medical costs required, and because of amputations and the need to help people become independent, the costs are ongoing,� Mr Johnston said. Leprosy is a long-term bacterial infection that kills the nerves, and usually results in permanent damage to the skin, limbs, and eyes. More than 2 million people are affected by leprosy in India alone, and according to Leprosy Mission Australia, one person is diagnosed with the disease every two minutes. The PLSG meets monthly at various places around the peninsula, including Hastings, Mornington, Mt Eliza and Frankston. Details: Don Johnston, 5979 2370.

New limits and lanes for safety Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au NEW lines, new rules, wooden bollards and flashing signs are all part of a comprehensive safety plan on two of the Mornington Peninsula’s busiest roads. The traffic management changes have been made along the Esplanade between Mt Martha and Safety Beach and Marine Drive to Dromana. The main attraction for many visitors to Mt Martha is the Pillars, a swimming and jumping spot on the steep cliffs off the Esplanade between Deakin Drive and Marguerita Av. But along with its popularity – increased by its many mentions on social media – the Pillars has created traffic safety issues, including parking in nearby narrow streets. In a bid to improve safety Mornington Peninsula Shire has installed wooden bollards along the Esplanade to prevent illegal parking and provide some sort of separation between traffic and pedestrians. Parking is allowed on bends on two wider sections of the Esplanade. Electronic signs give motorists and indication of their approach speeds, rewarding those dropping down to 40kph with a smiley face and a grimace for those travelling faster. Signs advising of a 40kph limit say it is because the area has high pedestrian activity. However, 60kph signs remain in place inside of the indicated 40kph section of road. The shire’s infrastructure strategy

manager David Smith said the “legal speed limit” along the Esplanade is 60kph. “Due to the increased pedestrian activity during the summer period the electronic 40kph advisory signage has been installed with VicRoads approval,” he said. “The purpose of this signage is to encourage motorists to travel at the suggested 40kph when pedestrians are present.” Mr Smith said new parking and bike lanes on Marine Drive “are in response to the recorded crash history with a high number of incidents involving cyclists and motor vehicles”. “The project was carried out in conjunction with the Victorian Community Road Safety Alliance in partnership with TAC and VicRoads. “The line marking treatment is a shared traffic lane which indicates to cyclists the space on the road in which they should aim to travel on. “In addition to this it also raises driver awareness to the presence of cyclists in the area. This is a standard treatment approved by VicRoads and is proven in reducing the types of incidents that have been occurring.” For safety’s sake: The popularity of the Pillars cliff swimming and jumping spot at Mt Martha has led to motorists being urged to limit their speed along the Esplanade to 40kph, while in Maribe Drive, Safety Beach, new lanes have been marked to separate vehicles and bikes.

A Christmas lunch for all THERE was no excuse to miss out on a Christmas lunch on December 25, with Mornington Peninsula residents invited to join one of the many community lunches around the shire. Community groups, churches and private businesses around the peninsula worked hard to provide delicious, nutritious meals and a warm, family atmosphere for the special day. Paula Creek, from Functioning Together, which organises a lunch at Mornington Senior

Citizens hall, said volunteers gave their time to help run the event, while businesses donate food and goods. Residents received a gift and a meal at Hastings Bowls Club thanks to volunteers from the Western Port community Christmas dinner group, and the generosity of Western Port businesses. Coordinator Wendy Gamble said the event was a great success, with more than 100 attendees.

Peasants are revolting By DAVID CHALKE THE Peasants’ Revolt of 1381 shook the establishment of England to its core. Fed by worsening living conditions and unfair taxation to pay for the ruling classes pet projects, the ordinary folk – artisans, labourers and officials – grew increasingly disaffected. The disconnected, uncaring and corrupt behaviour of the elites in the capital city eventually provoked the citizens of Essex and then Kent into outright rebellion. At first, the insurrection was limited to the distant rural heartland miles from the capital, but word quickly spread across the shires. So widespread was the plebeian outrage that the charismatic rabble-rouser, Wat Tyler was soon leading a march on London to overthrow the established order. Confronted by a weak and divided opposition the peasants took the royal fortress, the Tower of London, and beheaded the Lord Chancellor, the Lord High Treasurer and any other royal supporters they could find. The heads were then displayed on pikes on London Bridge, to the jubilation of the crowds. Under such pressure, the King was forced to accede to many of the demands of the rebels, including the abolition of serfdom. Move forward 600-odd years and similar forces can be detected; hopefully less violent then their medieval predecessors. In the developed, western world, the political classes and their supporting experts have become increasingly distant and disengaged from what former Australian prime minister Robert Menzies called “the forgotten people�. The gulf is of such an extent that the two groups are barely communicating with each other, resulting in a serious and increasing disconnect between public policy and the public. This is fertile ground for the modern Wat Tylers to rage and rail against the elites and the

experts and attract the disaffected, the un-heard and the fearful. Those whose concerns are basic: a good job, a hopeful future for their children, an affordable cost of living and respect for their values and beliefs. On the other hand, the rulers have appeared to become more focused on fashionable causes cÊlèbres such as globalisation, identity politics, climate change and human rights. This has been paralleled

and that’s how they see their leaders

The triumph of Donald Trump in the United States coincides with Australians’ record loss of faith in their elected represenatatives.

by an apparent distain for the hopes and fears of those they regard as “The Deplorables”. Consequently, the electorate’s suspicion of the elites is now matched by the elites’ disrespect for the electorate. A quick look at the political landscape of the western world shows the peas-

ants in revolt and the rise of the demagogues, of both right and left. Marine Le Pen in France, Geert Wilders in Holland, Nigel Farage in Britain, Norbert Hofer in Austria, SYRIZA in Greece, the Danish People’s Party in Denmark, the Law and Justice Party in Poland, Podemos in Spain and most strikingly of all, Donald Trump, the President-elect of the United States. In Australia, the disconnect between the establishment and ordinary Australians has not been as marked as in Europe and the US. However, a similar, if less virulent, condition is apparent. The agendas of the prevailing politico/social order and middle Australia mirror those of their counterparts overseas. The potential frictions between the two have been salved by 25 years of recession free, relative prosperity, but this is changing. Wages growth for most workers is minimal, while cost of living pressures are rising, particularly for essential utilities. This would be manageable with an explanatory political narrative as to why – remember the “recession we had to have” – but there has been no such thing from the leadership. The absence of a credible shared vision of the future of the country leaves a void where latent fears and uncertainties incubate and emerge unresolved. Add to this a rising suspicion that certain segments of society are more favoured than others and the

resultant resentment is fuelling a demand to be heard and listened to from “the forgotten people”. This has prompted a decline in popular support for the established major parties and the emergence of agitators, agents provocateurs, and other oddball characters being sent to Canberra with the resulting paralysis and dysfunction of the process of government. The latest AustraliaSCAN survey shows that confidence in the federal government is the lowest it has been this century. People’s uncertainty about their personal financial futures spills over into their worries about the prosperity of future generations, with nearly two-thirds of adult Australians believing that young people today will not enjoy a standard of living better than their parents. A similar proportion believe that the country is heading in the wrong direction. There is a clear and pressing need for the enunciation of a new vision for the future of Australia; one with which the majority of Australians can agree. What is certain is that Australians want a new “light on the hill” to describe where the community is heading and why. What is less certain is who among our current crop of political leaders can deliver it. For decision makers in both the public and private sectors there are three key implications for 2017:

1 Growing unpredictability both overseas and in Australia. Therefore, it would be wise to minimise irrevocable and inflexible long term commitments. While retaining the organisation’s strategic focus, endeavour to keep contingency reserves in store. 2 All established institutions, even the old household names, will be under immense pressure to perform against more nimble competitors. Large organisations should build agility into their operations, while small to medium business should take advantage of their flexibility to out manoeuvre the old dinosaurs. 3 Identity will become increasingly important. Who you are, what you stand for and how you behave will discriminate between the winners and losers in 2017. Keep in touch with your stakeholders and respond to their concerns with understanding. Incidentally, the Peasants Revolt didn’t end well for the peasants. The leaders, including Wat Tyler, were all executed by a vengeful establishment and the concessions they had won were reversed. In a similar vein, expect Donald Trump to be attacked from all sides by a vengeful establishment and don’t be surprised if he fails to run a full four year term. Let’s party like it’s 1381. David Chalke is the principal of The Strategy Planning Group and a consultant to AustraliaSCAN.

Fast food a deadly ‘treat’ for cats IT seems humans are not the only species that has an appetite for takeaway fast food. It seems feral cats and foxes are especially drawn to menu items at KFC in Hastings, although there’s a good chance that their first meal from the outlet is also their last. The role that KFC Hastings has in controlling pest animals has been uncovered along with a list of credit card expenses by Parks Victoria staff which also includes meals at the Portsea Hotel and several expensive restaurants elsewhere in the state – but presumably not for consumption by animals. Parks staff went to KFC Hastings seven times, running up a $260 bill on fried chicken to be used as bait to trap cats. No explanation has yet been given for the $1000 spent at the Portsea hotel. Exposure by the HeraldSun newspaper of the expenditure has caused state Environment Minister Lily D’Ambrosio to call on Parks to explain the past year’s $2.2 million credit card bill. Parks Victoria acting CEO Margaret Gillespie has been quoted as saying the latest credit bill was higher than the previous year’s because of the phasing out of petty cash.

Lower the speed limits on most peninsula roads As the local government representative of Red Hill ward which covers 50 per cent of the Mornington Peninsula Shire I am very worried about the state of the peninsula’s roads. I have received many complaints from residents concerned about road conditions and dangerous intersections. The accident rate on the peninsula is far too high. To alleviate all of these problems would be beyond council or state government budgets and, as we all know, VicRoads has a priority list for funding that relies on deaths before action is taken. Our local roads were not planned and built to accommodate the heavy local and tourist traffic punishing our fragile system, especially the once little used cross peninsula “tracks”, since paved and now heavily used to discover the peninsula’s delightful destinations or simply drive to work, shopping or our kids to school. Because of the obvious need for action, speed limits have been reduced along some roads, the latest being Balnarring and the Bittern-Dromana roads, but there is a lobby against these speed restrictions. Many of us like to drive our cars very fast. It is time to take a stand on this issue: We need an overall strategy, not a piecemeal approach. If roads cannot be maintained properly or fixed and intersections made safer then speed limits should be lowered. We must look at all our non-freeway arterial roads and, I suggest, reduce the speed to 80kph on most of them. Authorities must sit down together and produce a plan to make our area safer. We need to reduce the appalling number of accidents on the peninsula.

Pressure from the public state and federal MPs will serve to highlight forgotten peninsula safe parliamentary seats and may force action before further carnage erupts on our roads. David Gill, councillor Red Hill ward

Autocratic VicRoads VicRoads has erected 80kph speed limit signs for the entire length of Dunns Creek Rd (Moats Corner, Dromana to Red Hill Rd intersection). I have no issue with the existing 80kph limit in the road’s windy section, however, the change relates to the perfectly straight section from Moats Corner to the bend at Melway 161 D6. I’m not aware of any community consultation on Dunns Creek Rd. If the council or a minister made such unannounced, unilateral changes there would be an uproar. Does VicRoads simply just do its own thing regardless of affected residents and the wider community? I object to this unadvertised and unnecessary change to Dunns Creek Rd because it is a major arterial road abutting farmland with few crossovers. The crash statistics for this road relate to the previously mentioned windy section mentioned. I have lived on Dunns Creek Rd for more than 60 years and have never had difficulty entering the road from the crossover. There is not the volume of traffic to cause a problem. VicRoads said that the Coolart Rd speed limit was reduced because it didn’t have the funds to maintain the road. There is no such problem with the quality of Dunns Creek Rd on this straight length. Dunns Creek Rd, for all the minimal risk issues I’ve listed, will have people uncon-

sciously exceeding the speed limit because it’s so plainly safe to do so. It will breed frustration and disrespect for the speed limits, which surely VicRoads does not want. VicRoads had the suggestion of 90kph as a compromise for the other major arterials changed in November. The community is desperately trying to maintain the peninsula for farmland and as a rural part of the state. It can be said that VicRoads is contributing to the suburbanisation of the peninsula. David Gibb, Dromana

Beach for dogs With each year the permanent human population on the southern Mornington Peninsula increases and with this comes an increase in the number of dogs. Summer holidays brings another huge swell in both populations. While I applaud the Mornington Peninsula Shire for providing dog parks which are available for dog and human recreation all year round, I conversely find the restrictions imposed during daylight saving on access to the single off-leash dog beach in Rosebud to be problematic. The result of these restrictions is that with each passing year more dogs are being crowded onto a few hundred metres of beach, in the midst of increasing numbers of human beachgoers. This summer I have encountered visitors with dogs who, even after speaking with a dog ranger, erroneously believed they could exercise their dog off leash on any beach after 7pm. Another dog owner had been unable to make sense of the shire’s website regarding dogs on Rosebud beaches. Members of a third group were insistent on their rights to picnic on the off-leash dog beach, across the narrow strip of dry sand at high tide. This group was not dog friendly and seemed to have no understanding of dog behaviour. The dogs which benefit from exercise on a beach are more likely to be those breeds which have high energy and tendencies to bark, swim, run and chase. These are all natural dog behaviours which need to be expressed in order for these dogs to be good, social members of the

community. A solution to all these problems would be a dog beach which is designated off-leash all day, all year round. Simplify the rules and there will be less confusion for dog owners and less unwelcome confrontations for beach goers. Mary Ryan, Rosebud

No change to dog nights A dear friend of mine from Rye declared until his dying day that his illness was caused by stress incurred from insufficient sleep because of a constantly yapping dog. Pleading with the owners to do something was futile. The first time I lived in Dromana I had a constantly barking dog next door for six years. In both cases nothing was achieved by complaining to the council and it was impossible to get through directly to the rangers. Unable to stand it anymore I relocated, losing money in the process, to a council where the rangers cared and were vigilant. Unfortunately I had to return only to find that in nine years nothing has changed, except the rates which keep increasing while the services decrease; our complaints are still dismissed. Something needs to be done. New by-laws; new council and/or new rangers or perhaps we could get together and sue the council for the negative affect its lack of due diligence has on our health, both mental and physical. It’s a sad but proven fact that often nothing is done until legal action is taken. Name and address supplied, Dromana

Port not so deep I read with dismay (“State to take over Port”, The News 20/12/16) that the CEO of the Port of Hastings Development Authority, Malcolm Geier, persists in promoting the incorrect view of “The Port of Hastings ... as Victoria’s deepest bulk port”. This has been constantly debunked by the facts. Overwhelming evidence of charted depth levels of Western Port and maritime maps clearly show the bay and the Port of Hastings do

Introducing not offer a deep water port. Waxing lyrical about significant development opportunities “as a key bulk port for Victoria,” is also misleading and misrepresents the state Labor government, which has clearly put this proposal on the bottom of the pile in favour of maintaining the environment and recreational and eco-tourism jobs and businesses. It is a worry when the CEO persists in this line of thinking and misinformation. He and the port authority would have so much support if they auspiced or developed partnerships with the community to develop the many potentially positive areas that would enhance, rather than destroy our unique Western Port environment. Esther Gleixner, Flinders

Dredging is forever In the article “State to manage port” (The News 20/12/16) a former harbourmaster states the required dredging is not as much as environmentalists think. The surface area is the issue. The seagrass, salt marsh and mangroves are critical to the permanent care of our biosphere. Whether you did one metre or 10 metres the destruction of plants is the same and guess what that destroys - the animals depending on them and changes the geology and ocean movement. We saw what happened at Somers beach when they messed with the tides before. Our ecosystems are forever, we are doing well if our ports last a couple of hundred years. If we all just bought what we needed we would not even be thinking of a second port, that is unless we are importing fresh air from China to deal with the pollution. Sue King, Somers

Expansion applauded In response to Rupert Steiner (“Green wedge threat”, Letters 19/12/16) I support Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s decision on [extending] the Willow Creek winery. I do this because: 1 What better way to protect our green wedge than to ensure sustainable agricultural and horticultural industries? 2 Such industries will provide our young people with jobs and long term meaningful careers.

3 We need to enhance our tourism industry, our biggest employer and provider of investment, so that it becomes strong and viable all year round. Protecting both jobs and the green wedge are not mutually exclusive goals - we can, and must, do both. Martin Dixon, MP for Nepean

Misogynist peninsula John Cain’s (“As a man, there’s no way I’d choose to be a woman”, Letters 20/12/16) brought to mind the Flower Drum Song from the movie “I enjoy being a Girl”. He makes a serious point on inadequate funding to protect abused women and children. If you’re out and about on the Mornington Peninsula you can’t miss it: The arrogance of the male, the assumption of superior intelligence coupled with a God given right in the decision making process, including how to bring up “the kids”. My observations, without any research and hopefully, no disrespect, is that it’s more prevalent among our tradies. Coming from 40 years of marriage equality I’ve found it a fascinating, yet ugly problem. I’ve seen the odd one or two escape from it, others to accept the impossibility of change, particularly with children, making their lot liveable as best they could. It’s a small number, but nevertheless seemingly insoluble. One can’t help wondering if there was government help, a form of escape, whether or not this small number would increase? I’ve only been living down here the past 17 years, living in employment and wages equality in Melbourne the previous 40 years, so from my perspective it sticks out like a sore thumb. A sad, traditional reality? Cliff Ellen, Rye

In recognition of the Rotary Club of Mornington’s ‘sailability’ program, the show will be opened on the Thursday night by two naval officers from HMAS Cerberus, in a nautical-themed setting at Mornington’s Peninsula Community Theatre. Throughout the show art from VCE students at Toorak College, Mornington Secondary College and Balcombe Grammar will be on display, demonstrating a wide range of art forms. There will be a display of art colourful glass work by Roberta Easton, who has been glass blowing for more than 20 years. Her work includes platters, vases, plates and paperweights and a range of animalinspired shapes. Visitors to the show will have the opportunity to buy an original piece. Feature artists at this year’s show, Gary Davy and Ron Brown, are both professionals but with differing styles. Davy is an award winning artist with an impressionistic approach featured in his seascapes, while Brown paints in a contemporary style with colour featured strongly.

She is a member of the Australian Watercolour Institute, an exhibiting artist and a judge. Art works on sale range from around $150 to more than $4000, and can be bought using bank card facilities. Over the 44 years of the Mornington Rotary Art Show more than $1million has been raised, with most going to support peninsula community projects, including schools, leadership programs, health services and sailing programs for the disabled. The remainder has been spent on International Rotary and Australian Rotary health projects such as research, the eradication of polio throughout the world, tsunami relief, and support for bushfire and flood affected communities. Opening night tickets can be bought online from morningtonarts.com.au, from Farrell’s bookstore, Mornington, or at the door on the night. Liz Bell

THE WARBLER

SOMETHING WORTH RAVING ABOUT There are many wonderful things happening right across the Mornington Peninsula but one which I want to rave about is the regional gallery’s latest incredible exhibition Birds: Flight paths in Australian art which brings together 74 works from private and public collections across Australia. The Gallery is supported by the Shire and I am very excited about its latest major exhibition. A number of local community groups have worked together to contribute: artists Kate Daw and Stewart Russell collaborated with the Mornington Peninsula pigeon racing club to create a pigeon club house in the gallery. Early –career artist Kenny Pittock was a resident at the Shire’s artist in residency cottage at Portsea and went birdwatching with the local BirdLife Mornington Peninsula group as research for his specially commissioned colourWing book. The Gallery’s Educator worked with Mornington Park Primary school students to create bird sculptures for the exhibition and the Gallery is holding school holiday programs and talks at The Briars Park. There are also creations by local artists in the Gallery shop. Drop in, grab a sheet of stickers and place a bird on Juan Ford’s work showcasing the view from Arthurs Seat – a celebration of one of our iconic Mornington Peninsula views. This is one exhibition not to be missed and I encourage you to visit the Gallery with your family and friends over the coming weeks.

The Mayor, Cr Bev Colomb

We need to react! We need to be moved! Did you know that according to reliable sources, such as the Australian Wildlife Conservancy, there are around 4 million feral cats in Australia. These feral cats kill millions of native animals every night, including Australian native birds which are increasingly under threat as their natural habitats shrink.

Art is not always about the pretty or comfortable; it can function as a beacon that emits warning signs and alerts. It also embodies the fundamental tenet ‘freedom of expression’ something highly valued in our society and something which most would hold onto with absolute resolve. With Petrina Hicks’s image one might ask: Why would any human allow a budgerigar to put its head in their mouth and why would someone photograph this and then have the gall to call it art? Maybe a better starting point is to ask: Why are we so uncomfortable with this image? What is it about this image that so unsettles us? These are not easily answered but I will give it a go!

Firstly, a budgerigar placing its head in the mouth of a human is not normal everyday behaviour. It is an aberration of sorts, but it does happen! Secondly, the human mouth is usually associated with consumption of food (not budgerigars); the receptacle for liquids that sustain and nourish us and, thirdly (but by no means lastly), we are discomforted by the internalising of this act – the eyes of neither the girl or bird are visible. The eyes, ‘the mirror of the soul’, are absent – we are only able to imagine ... and, when we do this we come to a conclusion (maybe þDZHG EDVHGRQRXURZQOLIH experiences and knowledge. The real challenge with Hicks’s work is to pause a moment DQGUHþHFWDQGQRWWRUHDFW

too hastily. What if you knew that strong bonds are formed between owners and pets and this is a sign of trust? What if you knew the bird had a YLWDPLQGHýFLHQF\DQGZDV trying to balance this? What if the budgerigar was in the mouth of a feral cat and you knew that the feral cat was the biggest threat to these delightful birds? You may then think that this image is more than appropriate to trigger debate and discussion about our unique Australian birds that are disappearing at an alarming rate. Hicks’s picture is one of many in the amazing, and occasionally provocative, themed exhibition Birds: Flight paths in Australian art which showcases historical and contemporary works and important stories.

Terwit terwoo Over a hundred Mornington Park Primary school students, grades 3â&#x20AC;&#x201C;6, have created avian works for the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery forecourt as part of the Birds: Flight paths in Australian art exhibition. Artist and MPRG educator Jill Anderson says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mainstream and Steiner students enthusiastically took up the challenge to design their own avian creature. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In the interests of caring for the environment and bird habitat, recycled drink bottles

Q&A WITH ARTIST JUAN FORD: Artist Juan Ford in front of his work We fill the sky showcasing the view from Arthurs Seat

Please tell us about the work youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re exhibiting as part of Birds: Flight paths in Australian art at MPRG. How did you come up with the idea? This idea is an extension upon a work I originally exhibited at the National Gallery of Victoria in 2013â&#x20AC;&#x201C;14, for Melbourne Now. I then also made another version of it for the Nakanojo Biennale in Japan in 2015, and this will be the 3rd iteration. I was thinking about the sheer numbers of us that have existed through history, and how there are probably more people alive

What have you found interesting about the way audiences have engaged and responded with this work? What insights has it given you into human behaviour? and into a forest of eucalypts.

OBITUARY

Farewell to Nick the Greek By Peter McCullough NICOLAS Ambatzidis died on 7 September, 2016 at the age of 72 after a battle with motor neurone disease. Known universally as “Nick the Greek”, he was a highly respected member of the Hastings community. The Greek Orthodox church in Mentone was filled to capacity for the funeral service on 13 September, and this was followed by the burial at the Mornington cemetery. Stavros, the eldest member of Nick’s family, compiled the eulogy on which this obituary is based. NICOLAS Ambatzidis was born on 6 December, 1943 in Theodorio, Greece, the youngest of four children. After the death of his mother (Varvara) when he was two, Nick’s father (Stavros) remarried (Anastasia) and a further three children were added to the family. As a consequence of the death of his father when he was eleven, Nick and one of his brothers were sent to an orphanage. There he attended school, was a member of the soccer team, and learned to play the clarinet, an instrument for which he had a lifelong passion. At the orphanage he also became familiar with the fundamentals of wrestling. After leaving school Nick worked for a short time as a mechanic in a textile factory at Vilka before being called up for National Service at the age of 18. He was allocated to the airforce where he trained as a helicopter mechanic. Nick continued to work on his clarinet playing and on one occasion he was a member of a trio asked to play before the King of Greece. Soon after his discharge Nick emigrated to Australia on the Canberra, arriving in Sydney on 29 July, 1966. En route all passengers were invited to participate in a Zorba the Greek dancing competition; no prizes for guessing who won! Nick delighted in displaying this trophy for the rest of his life. Nick’s first job in Australia was with Lysaghts in Wollongong and over the next few years he moved around the country working in places such as Port Kembla and Whyalla

and, whenever the opportunity arose, entertaining his Aussie mates with the clarinet. Wrestling was experiencing something of a resurgence in Australia and Nick decided it was time to display the holds that he had executed on his long-suffering brother at the orphanage. Before long he was appearing on television and the overly dramatic Jack Little made sure that most households were familiar with “Nick the Greek”. Now something of a celebrity, even if a minor one, Nick was prompted to move to Melbourne where he lost no time in forming a band. For three years The Delphins performed mainly at functions within the Greek community with Nick cutting loose on the clarinet. But the world changed for Nick one day in 1969 when, rushing around a corner in Brunswick, he literally bumped into a young lady named Konstadina. Although he received a reprimand to watch where he was going, Nick was smitten. A month later they eloped and were married on 13 January, 1970. Over the next 46 years Nick and Dina, as she was known, were blessed with great faith and neither was afraid of hard work. In the first seven years of their marriage they were joint proprietors of a number of milk bars, fish and chip shops, and BBQ chicken shops, moving from Brunswick to Hampton, then Carnegie and Ashburton. These were all labour-intensive businesses and Nick’s days as a wrestler and band leader were soon in the past; his only indulgence was a fishing boat which he was able to get out in occasionally. While Nick and Dina were the proprietors of the famous “Nick the Greek” fish and chip shop in Brunswick the eldest of their four children, Stavros, was born. He was followed by Varvara (Barbara), Yiorgos (George), and Fotini (Fiona), all of whom inherited their parents’ strong work ethic. A big change took place in 1977 when Nick purchased a small ten acre poultry farm in Graydens Road, Tyabb. As well as operating the poultry farm, Nick and Dina opened Far left: Nicolas Ambatzidis playing clarinet in his national service days in Greece. Left: Nick and Dina, married in January 1970.

Western Port News 10 January 2017


a number of businesses in Hastings including a BBQ chicken shop, a cafe and delicatessen, a fish and chip shop, a fresh fish shop, and a florist shop, which traded as “Nikodinas Flowers”, on three different occasions. Part of the folk lore amongst Hastings traders is that the first thing Nick did when he opened the BBQ chicken shop in High Street was to alter the exhaust vent from the ceiling to a position above the front window; passing pedestrians found the aroma irresistible! In more recent times the Ambatzidis family has conducted a farm store on their Graydens Road property, selling flowers, honey and eggs. In 1984 Nick suffered a setback when he was forced to have a laminectomy to relieve constant back pain. The prognosis was not good; there was only a 15% chance that he would walk again. Within a fortnight he was back at work on the farm. Local GP, Dr. Rush, was driving down Graydens Road when he looked across and saw Nick on the roof of the poultry sheds which he was transforming into glass houses. He swung the car into the yard and shouted at Nick: “Get down from that roof. You are not allowed to be working.”Nick looked down and replied: “And who is going to provide for my family?” After the transformation of the poultry sheds, the flower farm flourished and, as well as the Hastings florist shops, Nick became a stall holder in 1985 at the Wholesale Flower Market in Footscray and from 1987 he became a familiar face at the Richmond market. His specialty was Arum lillies and he became the largest grower in Australia; one of his boasts was that, because they were out of season in the UK at the time, Nick’s lillies were placed on the coffin of Princess Diana in 1997. Nick’s first fishing boat had been sold when he was trying to raise money to buy the poultry farm. However he never lost his interest in fishing and around 2000 he bought another boat which he took out on Western Port Bay at every opportunity. Nick was an active member of the Greek community and was involved in the establishment of the Greek Orthodox church at Red Hill. He was Vice President of the Frankston

branch of the Greek Society. Nick loved to entertain and his guests included his neighbours as well as members of the Greek community. A few sheep were always kept at the rear of the property and one of these would be barbecued on a contraption which only Nick Ambatzidis could have devised and which Heath Robinson would have expressed dismay at; it consisted largely of a power driven bicycle wheel and the motor from a washing machine which somehow kept the spit turning. The end result was always worth the wait. In December, 2015 Nick felt rather unwell and, as time went on, he had difficulty walking. Although he was hospitalized on several occasions and many tests were carried out, it was not until May of 2016 that he was diagnosed with motor neurone disease.

Although he rallied in early August and was able to attend the wedding of his son, George, and the christenings of two of his grandchildren, Nick’s health declined rapidly and he was placed in palliative care. Eight days later, on 7 September, he passed away, surrounded by the family he adored and who adored him in return. Nick’s wife, Dina (Konstadina), was a great support during their 46 years of marriage; together they saw all their children get married, had 14 grandchildren, and made many lifelong friends. Decency, reliability, dignity and respect were all qualities that Nick not only held in high regard, but practised daily. He enjoyed the simple things in life: family, good company, a good joke, music, and his beloved fishing.

Above: Wedding of Stavros and Xenia Ambatzidis, 1995, (from left) Fiona, Barbara, Stavros, Xenia, Nick, Dina, and George. Below: A lifelong fisherman, Nick loved nothing more than getting a boat on the water and throwing a line in. It provided relaxation and enjoyment, and fish for his family and many friends! It was always said that if he caught two fish, he would always give one of them away.

WORDS OF WISDOM THOSE who knew Nick Ambatzidis will readily recall some of his favourite sayings. The meaning was sometimes obscure, but they reflected the character of the man. Perhaps his best known was said with a smile and a hand on your shoulder: “You are number one...after me.” A few others were: “A fish that doesn’t open its mouth won’t get caught.” “Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are.” “Where you are, I have been. Where I am, you will come.” “You can’t hold two watermelons under one arm.” “No bananas on the boat, not even Banana Boat sunscreen. It’s BAD LUCK.” and finally, from the wall of one of his fish and chip shops: “I’ve done a deal with the bank. They won’t sell fish and chips and I won’t cash cheques.”

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Nine foot shark caught at Frankston Pier Compiled by Cameron McCullough BATHERS are warned to be cautious while bathing at present as there are a number of sharks about. Mr E. McComb captured one measuring 9 feet 4 inches in length at the Pier in the beginning of the week. *** REV. E. Tonkin will conduct both services at the Frankston Methodist Church on Sunday next, and will also preach at Langwarrin in the afternoon. Visitors are heartily welcomed. *** A GRAND concert and dance will be given in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Saturday, 20th January, by the Essendon City Concert Band Entertainers, vocalists and instrumentalists. The programme is a varied one, and promises a good evening’s amusement. *** A WORKING bee is advertised to take place at the Frankston cemetery on Saturday afternoon. 20th Jan., at 3 p.m. It is to be hoped that a good number of helpers will make a point of attending, as the cemetery presents a very neglected appearance. *** MR. J. Wells notifies by advertisement that he has commenced business at the corner of Wells street and Melbourne road as a wood, coal and coke merchant, and is prepared to supply any quantity of firewood in suitable lengths at moderate charges. All orders entrusted to him will receive prompt attention. ***

AS showing the advantages of advertising. Mr H Robertson, of “Selencia” informs us that he lost a golf brassey stick some two or three weeks ago, and gave it up as “gone for ever”, but a friend recommended him to put in an advertisement in the local paper, stating his loss. He acted on the suggestion, and within two days the lost stick was returned to him! *** SOME steps should be taken by the local Council to have the bathing boxes on the shore kept in a clean condition. General complaints are made by visitors that they are in a filthy state and unfit to go into. If the nuisance is caused wilfully the police slould be informed, and if two or three of the culprits were caught and severely dealt with it would materially lessen the evil. *** THE return cricket match between the Langwarrin Military Camp Cricket Club and Frankston Cricket Club will he played at Frankston today Jan 18th. Keen interest is displayed in this match and the soldiers are determined to avenge their defeat. Afternoon tea will be provided for the players by the ladies. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason beg to announce as per advertisement appearing in another column, that after the current month they will conduct sales at their Somerville yards on the second and fourth Wednesday in

each month. Owing to Mr Leaumont’s sale at Frankston on the 24th inst. the January sale will be held on the 31st., (Wednesday.) The salesman announced this at the yards on Wednesday, 10th, which appeared to give satisfaction generally. Messrs Brody and Mason will hold an important sale on Wednesday, 24th January, on the premises, Cranbourne Road, on account of Mr Leaumont, who is relinguishing his poultry industry, of high class poultry, etc., consisting of 400 laying hens and pullets, principally white leghorn, of the best known strains, and 150 muscovy ducklings. Also a mile of wire-netting, brooders, incubators, corrugated iron tanks, etc. Five sheds, mostly of good iron, will also be sold (for removal). A good buggy mare, jinker, rustic cart, and several milkers are among the lots offered. *** THE residence of Mr Von Klitzing, situated in Mitchell street, Ouyen, was totally destroryed by fire on Monday night. The outbreak was caused by one of the daughters throwing down a lighted match. The house, which was the property of Mr Nitschke, was only quite recently erected, having been removed from St. Arnaud. There was no insurance on either the building or the contents. In addition, the tenant lost £37 in notes. Owing to the delay on the part of

the Water Commission in reticulating the town, although ample water is available, no fire brigade has yet been established. Mr Von Klitzing has just recently sold his property in Frankston where he had lived for some time and was well known. *** Frankston Court of Petty Sessions. Monday, January 8th 1917. Before Messrs Sherlock, W. J. Oates, C. W. Grant and C. G. V. Williams J’s.P. A DISPUTED DEBT CASE William Henry Millar v Edwin J. Foster, Tyabb–Claim for £50, money due on promissory notes. Mr Utber for complainant and Mr J Barrett for defendant. Mr Barrett raised an objection to the Court hearing the case, contending that as defendant’s residence was at Tyabb, the proceedings should have been brought to Hastings court. After lengthy argument by Council the Bench adjourned the case to Hastings court, on 23rd of January. TRAVELLING WITHOUT TICKETS Patrick Henry Roy, an officer of the Victorian Railways Commissioners proceeded against Walter Williams and James Wilson for travelling from Melbourne to Frankston, on 2nd January, without tickets. Both defendants pleaded guilty. Evidence for the prosecution was given by Corp Macartney (Military Police) Porter Lidgerwood, and Const. E. C. Ryan. It appears that the defendants were arrested for misbehaviour on the

railway platform after the arrival of the 1am Melbourne train. When searched at the watchouse by Const Ryan they were found to have only platform tickets in their possession. The excuse given by defendants was “That they thought the train had gone so bought platform tickets at Flinders St intending to pay their fares at this end.” Each defendant was fined 10s with 5s costs default distress. They had already been dealt with on the misbehavour charge. A ROGUE AND VAGABOND Const Ryan charged William Fullerton, an aged man, with wilful obscene exposure at Victoria St Frankston on 2nd January, and defendent was therefore deemed to be a rogue and vagabond, Fullerton pleaded not guilty. Const Ryan informed the court that a penalty of two years imprisonment and a flogging was provided for this offence. Evidence for the prosecution was given by Lance Cpl Robert Macar tney and Pte Major (military police) and Const E. C. Ryan. Accused was convicted. Const put in 5 previous convictions against him for various offences and informed the court that a warrant was in existence for him on another charge. The Bench imposed a sentence of seven days imprisonment. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 13 January 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Deck the Hollis - a run (DMC) down of Christmas By Stuart McCullough IT used to be so easy. Once, Christmas happened as if by magic. All I had to do was wake up and it was there, in all its shiny, glittering glory. Not anymore. Christmas now is not magic but a looming deadline for a whole range of tasks. From that moment in about mid-October when you hear the first strained snippet of a Christmas Carol seeping from the supermarket speakers, the weight of an awesome responsibility begins to settle on your shoulders. It’s both a test of endurance and race to the finish line. That’s because Christmas requires the kind of planning ordinarily reserved for a landbased invasion. And almost as many casualties. Last year, we offered to host. In that sense, we had only ourselves to blame. Let me say now that we drastically under-estimated what it takes to stage a family event of this magnitude. Previously, I thought the preparations would largely consist of clearing space on the table for the turkey and a few bon bons. I accept that I was entirely deluded. It was not helped by the fact that we elected to set the bar quite high. We were determined to do something different; to try and put our own indelible stamp on the day. My wife was quite keen on the idea of games to keep kids of all ages entertained. Consequently, we scoured Southland shopping centre the week before Christmas for Yuletide-themed piñata. Upon reflection, I’m not sure that such things even exist. It’s hard to imagine anyone selling a paper mache Santa that children then beat with a

PAGE 38

stick until it breaks in half. We briefly contemplated making our own Father Christmas piñata, but I was concerned that we might overdo things, creating something that was too close to indestructible. The only thing worse than beating Santa with a stick is upgrad-

Western Port News 10 January 2017

ing to a baseball bat with a nail in it. Assaulting Saint Nick, even in paper mache form, may not be in the best possible taste. Owing to the size of my family, Christmas meals have always involved two distinct teams. Diners

were, like post-war Berlin, cruelly divided into groups: there were those on the big table and then there are the rest, consigned to the ultimate ignominy that was ‘the kids table’. For as long as I can remember, the primary aspiration of my life was to escape the clutches of ‘the kids table’. To be elevated to the big table would, so I believed, be all the confirmation I would ever need of my burgeoning maturity. Besides, it’s hard to eat Christmas dinner when you’re crammed around a card table and sitting in miniature plastic chairs which, for anyone older than five, are basically something you wear rather than sit on; like a pair of brightly coloured moulded underpants. How I longed to sit on a real chair. Unfortunately, we don’t own a table that seats twenty-five people. But neither to we own a card table, ensuring that the quality of any subsidiary furniture was bound to be more suited to dinner than a game of Texas Hold ‘Em. But we still didn’t have much in the way of seating. First, we contemplated seating people in shifts. In reality, this is perhaps a more extreme response to having a ‘big’ and ‘little’ table. It would never suffice. It was clear that we needed chairs and lots of them. Having seen ‘MacGyver’ in several three-second bursts whilst changing channels, I knew that the answer would have to be improvised. Using string, household baking soda and a decorative cushion, I managed to fashion something that resembled all those items after they’d tripped over each other. It didn’t make for much of anything, much less

something you’d deposit your backside on. Instead, we did the honourable thing and threw ourselves on the mercy of our neighbours. Lucky for us, they came through in fine style. As did members of the family, who arrived with plates of food and gifts that transformed our Christmas tree from a glittering Lone Pine to something from which an extraordinary bounty of gifts appeared to have fallen. And then there were the people themselves. There is nothing better at Christmas time that the hum of happy conversation over lunch. It was nothing short of spectacular. When the time came, family members marched to the clothesline from which we’d hung a homemade piñata. Ultimately, it was a crepe paper globe rather than an effigy and kids took delight in thumping it until it spilled its chocolate payload onto the grass. This Christmas, we were back at the farm in Tyabb and the festive spirit was alive and well within my family. A few weeks before the big day, I received a phone call from my fouryear old nephew, Tyler. He’d decided that he wanted to sing me his all time favourite festive carol: Christmas in Hollis by RUN DMC. There are, I believe, far too few rap Christmas carols. I was impressed both by the message and by my nephew’s lyrical flow. I can’t wait until we’re all together again, gathered around the tree and the Pianola, belting out our rendition of Christmas in Hollis, after which I will take my seat at the big table. Hope you had a a wonderful Christmas and all the best for 2017. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

MENTAL AS ANYTHING Nearly 40 years of recording and non stop touring. 25 top 40 hits in Australia. Sustained international airplay and Mentals are still at it. Martin Plaza and Greedy Smith are always writing songs. They can’t stop! Here comes a loony chunkabilly track from Plaza. Slide guitar harmonica and laconic vocal take us to his bedlam. -Goat Tracks In My Sandpit-. A troubled soul? Recorded in Martin Plaza’s Sandpit and A Sharp In Riverwood. Plaza obliquely pays tribute to Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys referencing his famous living room sandpit where Brian wrote his songs and faced his personal demons.

and Steve James who produced Mentals take on RocknRoll Music for Young Einstein. In the can and just around the corner is a five track EP featuring the Mentals current lineup of Martin Cilia From the Atlantics on guitar, Jacob Cook on drums and from Mondo Rock, Casey Chambers and Jimmy Barnes James Gillard on bass and bvs. Five new songs Written by Greedy and Martin that Show the range and depth of two lifetimes in pop songwriting. Mental as Anything will be playing at The Grand Hotel, Mornington, on Friday 10 February. Tickets at grand.oztix.com.au or www.grand. net.au

Plaza’s demons?: phantom footprints? unseen goats drinking all his cans beer? Shades of the Nips perhaps. Produced by Martin

Sore Feet or Legs? Call

Feet and legs fit for 2017 WITH a new year upon us, its the perfect time to ensure you’re in good shape to tackle the year ahead. Our feet, ankles and knees are relied upon for our daily mobility, yet they’re often the cause of pain, discomfort and neglect. We asked the experts at Foot & Leg Pain Clinics for some tips to help keep you pain free and active in 2017! 1. Always get foot and leg pain checked. Simple soreness can be a symptom of more serious underlying issues and a podiatrist who specialises in Musculoskeletal issues has the most appropriate and specific medical expertise to treat such issues. 2. Evaluate your footwear. Summer footwear such as thongs and slips-ons can be stressful to the feet and ankles, if worn too long. Choose shoes that are comfortable with straps or laces (that hold to the feet), and have decent cushioning and support, especially for prolonged activity. 3. Choose activity/sport appropriate shoes for sport & recreational activities. 4. Don’t rely on technological advances in footwear to treat pain & discomfort or decrease the risk of injury. Proper advice and treatment from an experienced musculoskeletal podiatrist is the best way to prevent and treat problems. 5. Don’t buy shoes that require a “break-in period”. Shoes should be comfortable immediately. 6. Shop for footwear at the end of the day to accommodate for normal swelling. Feet can swell by up to 10% during the course of a day. 7. Be careful of off-the-shelf foot products including mass produced orthotics, innersoles and arch supports. Only devices prescribed by an experienced musculoskeletal or sports podiatrist should be used to ensure correct, effective and safe use. 8. Get a second opinion, if you’ve been prescribed surgery or medications. Thanks

to the latest medical research and regenerative treatments many surgeries for foot, knee and leg concerns can be avoided, even knee replacements if caught in time.

Most foot & leg pain, injuries and arthritis can now be assisted quite easily and effectively. We can actually heal injuries and repair damaged or degenerated tissues. See a musculoskeletal podiatrist who provides Prolotherapy or PRP treatments for your best treatment options.

Climbing high: Mt Eliza knocked off Peninsula Old Boys in the last game of 2016 and sit on the top of the Provincial ladder. Picture: Rab Siddhi

New year brings new challenges By IT Gully HAPPY New Year to everyone involved in MPCA cricket. No doubt everyone has had a sensational break and are looking forward to an exciting back end of the 2016-17 season. There is little doubt that there is plenty of excitement and challenges for clubs in every grade across all divisions. There are just two one-day matches and three two-day games left in the season, kicking off this Saturday with a one-day match to launch the New Year. Provincial In Provincial, the fight for a spot in the top four is well and truly on with six teams with realistic chances of making finals. Mt Eliza sits on top of the Provincial table with 70 points after recording two outright wins in the opening half of the season. Despite leading the table, they have lost one game this season. Baxter, who have the best two players in the competition right now in Chris Brittain and Daniel Warwick, are in second place on 66 points after recording five wins from six matches. The draw came from a wash-out. Baxter are still the team to beat in the back half. Langwarrin have been the surprise packet of the season, also sitting on 66 points and holding third place. When you talk of teams playing to their potential, the Kangas have done it to a

tee. Whether they can sustain in for another five rounds is questionable. Peninsula Old Boys are just lurking in fourth place on 54 points after recording four wins, a draw and a loss. The Old Boys know they just need to make it and they are in with a mighty show to defend their title. Mornington are a game further back and has probably been the disappointment to this point. The Dogs had a shocker last season and haven’t fared much better this season, sitting on 42 points with three wins, two losses and a draw. The only other side capable of playing finals outside of the top five is Sorrento, who are in sixth place on 38 points. An outright victory has saved the Sorras’ bacon though, having recorded three losses and a draw from its six games. Pearcedale, Crib Point and Pines are all on 30 points and while they’ll play a role on shaping the four, are highly unlikely to miss out. Somerville is on 18 points and have also been a little disappointing, while Long Island and Moorooduc will fight out relegation. Run Scorers: Chris Brittain (480), Daniel Warwick (404), Shamith Kannagarra (319), Bobby Wilson (291), Matt Foon (272). Wicket Takers: Kaine Smith (20), Jon Forrest (19), Shaun Knott (18), Nick Baron (17), Rob Parslow (17), Pat Jackson (17), Russell Wilkes (17). Champion Player: – Chris Brittain (98), Daniel Warwick (74.40), Bob-

by Wilson (65.10), Travis Campbell (56.30), Justin Grant (53.90), Keith Biggs (51.20), Shamith Kannagarra (50.90), Wade Pelzer (50.20), Matt Foon (48.20), Jon Forrest (46.70). This Saturday (Rnd 7): Long Island v Baxter, Pearcedale v Mt Eliza, Moorooduc v Somerville, Crib Point v Mornington, Pines v Sorrento, POB v Langwarrin. District The race is well and truly on in District with nine sides all boasting finals claims. The first game of the New Year will certainly sort out the log-jam of teams all vying for a spot in the finals. There are some season-defining matches this Saturday. The top two in Red Hill (68 points) and Mt Martha (62 points) look to have the competition covered at this stage, although Delacombe Park in third place and Flinders in fourth place are less than a game behind on 54 points. The Hillmen have won five from its six matches, including an outright, while losing to Mt Martha. The Reds have four wins from six games, as well as a loss and draw. Outside of the top four, Baden Powell and Heatherhill are just hovering in fifth and six place respectively, sitting on 50 points. Rosebud are still in the mix, just a game outside the four on 42 points and given Main Ridge’s talent, sitting on 38 points gives them a sniff – everything would need to go right for them,

as it would for Seaford Tigers, who are 14 points outside the top bracket on 36 points. Seaford will be looking to make a move from third bottom while Boneo and Rye will fight out relegation. Having lost four games outright, Rye is facing an uphill battle to prevent falling to Sub District next season. Run Scorers: Jon Guthrie (385), Rhys Elmi (304), Nick Christides (292), Riley Shaw (280), Shaun Foster (260). Wicket Takers: Rhys Whitling (30), Lincoln Toy (18), Jake Theobald (18), Luke Collins (18), Chris Cleef (18). Champion Player: Rhys Whitling (83.70), Jon Guthrie (78.50), Rhys Elmi (68.40), Ash Mills (60.80), Riley Shaw (56), Simon Dart (55.70), Blake Hogan-Keogh (48.90), Jake Theobald (48.70), Nick Christides (48.20), Shaun Foster (48). This Saturday (Rnd 7): Boneo v Seaford, Rosebud v Delacombe Park, Seaford Tigers v Main Ridge, Red Hill v Baden Powell, Mt Martha v Flinders, Rye v Heatherhill. Sub District The second half of the season in Sub District is going to be breathtaking, given all but one team is capable of playing finals. At the halfway mark of the season, just one game separated fourth placed Dromana from second bottom Carrum. The bottom would need to fall out of the Hastings (four wins from six matches including an outright, as well

as a draw) and Ballam Park (five wins from six matches) buckets for them not to play finals, sitting on 62 points and 60 points respectively and holding the top two places on the ladder. Tootgarook and Dromana are in third and fourth place respectively after recording three wins, a draw and two losses in the first half of the season. There are then five sides on 30 points – Balnarring, Tyabb, Frankston YCW, Carrum Downs and Carrum, all separated by percentage. Skye is on the bottom with just one win. Given the closeness of the season, getting away to a good start in round seven is critical. Run Scorers: Travis French (322), Stuart Plunkett (315), Nick Taranto (286), Lai Leaunoa (261), Aidan Pateman (246). Wicket Takers: Stuart Plunkett (18) Jye Voelkl (17), David Dervan (16), Andy Kitson (15), David Cross (15), Mitch Floyd (15). Champion Player: Stuart Plunkett (92.5), Matt Whelan (69.10), Travis French (66.20), David Dervan (65.70), Nick Taranto (57.60), David Cross (48.10), Aidan Pateman (46.60), Brett Hudgson (44.70), Lai Leaunoa (44.10), Rob Hearn (44). This Saturday (Rnd 7): Carrum Downs v Carrum, Hastings v Skye, Balnarring v Ballam Park, Tootgarook v Frankston YCW, Tyabb v Dromana.

Annual Steve Wallace Cup January highlight SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie PRE-SEASON preparations for the 25 March kick-off to the 2017 league season go into overdrive this month. The highlight is the annual Steve Wallace Cup on Saturday 28 January, which will again be hosted by Mornington at its Dallas Brook’s Park headquarters. The event commemorates the life of local soccer icon Stephen William Wallace who was 54 years old when he died on 19 July 2011 and was a former Langwarrin player, coach, president, life member, club council representative and Bayside League referee. The charity event is a showcase for the local game and always draws a large crowd. This year’s round-robin format involves 10 clubs in two groups with each team playing four group games of 15-minute halves and the top teams in each group playing off in the Grand Final. The participating clubs are Mornington, Langwarrin, Casey Comets, South Springvale, Berwick City, Seaford United, Peninsula Strikers, Skye United, Rosebud Heart and Baxter. On the transfer front Mornington has agreed terms with former star Simon Mur, who is due to return in mid-March from a two-year stint in England. Mur scored 24 goals in the 2014 season and Mornington head coach Adam Jamieson is delighted to welcome back the pacy striker. English imports Jack Truelove and Nathan Smith arrive on Wednesday 1 February and Jamieson has agreed terms with central midfielder Matthew Wade from Blyth Spartans in England’s Northern Premier League Premier Division. The 24-year-old is a former South Shields, Washington and West Allotment Celtic player. Striker Gino Defeo is trialling with Mornington. The 35-year-old has had stints with Port Melbourne, Brunswick City, Bulleen Lions, Clifton Hill, Diamond Valley United, Kingston City and Doncaster Rovers. Brad Zealley has been confirmed as Mornington’s goalkeeping coach. Teenage goalkeeping prodigy Cooper Bankes-Fay is likely to leave Mornington. He has been training with Bentleigh Greens and flies to the UK this week with the Australian schoolboys squad. Frankston Pines start training for

the upcoming season on Thursday and the club hopes to complete the capture of two young Mauritian internationals to join fellow Mauritian visa players Cedric Permal and Christopher L’Enclume at the Monterey Reserve outfit. New vice-president Daniel Plaiche was awaiting confirmation of their signing this week before arranging visas and flights for the duo. Skye United could sign five new players for its State 3 South-East campaign after its 2016 championship success. Among those targeted by senior coach Billy Armour are two Brazilians and an accomplished striker.

“I can’t give you their names because I don’t want other clubs chasing them but the striker is a former Division One player and he could still play at that level although he’s been playing down the leagues lately,” said Armour. Rosebud Heart expects big things from English recruit Will O’Brien, a central midfielder who played in the Bayside League last year and was on the books of Swaffham Town. Defender Callum Richardson has rejoined after a season with Peninsula Strikers and big Chris Sibson has returned from Seaford United. Senior coach Scott Morrison has retained all of last year’s squad.

Newly formed Somerville Eagles are hoping to hear from FFV this month that their application for membership of State 5 South has been successful. The club is based at Somerville Secondary College and is backed by Ultra Fine Foods whose director Felix Arena is Eagles’ president. “We just felt that there was an opportunity to establish a club in the broad Tyabb, Pearcedale, Somerville area and if FFV accepts our application we are likely to run around six sides this year,” said Arena. Zach Peddersen is director of coaching. Here are some pre-season schedules:
