AWAY IN A MANGER

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, The little Lord Jesus lay down his sweet head. The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay, The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay. The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes, But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes. I love thee, Lord Jesus; Look down from the sky, And stay by my side until morning is nigh. Be near me Lord Jesus,I ask Thee to stay Close by me for ever and love me I pray Bless all the dear children in thy tender care And fit us for heaven to live with Thee there.

Party time for primary reading success

Helping eyes: Volunteer reader Mary Mitcham and Lachlan of Hastings Primary Schools at the Reading for Life celebration on Thursday. Picture: Yanni

IT’S celebration time for many people with the end of the year fast approaching and Christmas around the corner but 51 pupils from Hastings Westpark, Hastings and St Mary’s primary schools had another reason to kick up their heels on Thursday – the end of their Reading for Life program. Hastings Westpark principal Mark Watters said the program had been a great success this year, the third year of the initiative. “The program saw 51 residents, university students and school parents do a three-hour training course to provide 15 one-on-one sessions for selected students from the three schools,â€? he said. “Last year we had 24 ‘reading buddies’ but due to the great promotion and support by the three schools, in particular St Mary’s principal Richard Mucha, we had 51 trained volunteers this time, which was amazing.â€? He said the results would be quantified by Michelle Button and staff from the education charity Learning Links. All pupils were presented with books and certificates. ď Ž Hastings Westpark primary will change its name to Wallaroo Primary School for the start of the 2014 school year.

Plane flips at Tyabb A PILOT from Albury and his young female passenger escaped injury when their light plane flipped onto its roof when landing at Tyabb airfield last Saturday morning at about 7.15. The pair had flown from Albury, leaving just before 6am. The Cessna 182S Skylane was halfway along the runway when it flipped and sustained “substantial� damage, according to the Aviation Safety Network website. The cause of the incident has not been released. Police and Tyabb CFA volunteers were

called to the airfield and the plane was later removed by crane. It was the second incident at Tyabb airfield in the past month. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is investigating a minor mid-air collision between two light planes at the airfield on 10 November. The investigation is not expected to be completed until March next year. It was the first mid-air accident at Tyabb since it opened in 1965. Airfield owner Peninsula Aero Club is holding its biennial air show next March. Mike Hast

Port surveys underway Food advice: Mornington Peninsula Shire’s rural business officer Gillian Stewart, left, the mayor Cr Antonella Celi and Richard Hawkes of Hawkes Potatoes and Farm Store in Boneo.

Group to push peninsula food MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is calling for expressions of interest from individuals and businesses to represent the food industry on a Food Industry Advisory Body. Establishing an advisory group is part of the shire’s “local food strategy”, which aims to promote the peninsula as a “quality, fresh and innovative food region”. The mayor Cr Antonella Celi said an industry-led body would “enhance the story, provenance and identity” of the peninsula’s food. Cr Celi said the peninsula was “renowned worldwide” for its wine and there was on “opportunity to raise

awareness of the full range of local food and food experiences on offer”. “From a consumer perspective, there is a growing demand to better understand and appreciate the food that is on offer and produced close to home,” she said. “The Food Industry Advisory Body will guide, advise and initiate activities to promote peninsula food in a collective and holistic manner complementary to existing singleindustry associations.” Applicants to join the advisory group should “have a willingness and energy to raise awareness about local food systems through advocacy,

communication and representation at industry events”. “Ideally, applicants will also have a working knowledge of key elements of the local food supply chain and a direct connection to the peninsula’s food sector as well as have demonstrated success in their industry.” The group is expected to meet at least quarterly and use “electronic mechanisms of communication as required to progress agreed actions”. For more information, contact the shire’s rural business officer, Gillian Stewart, on 5950 1833 or email business@mornpen.vic.gov.au

SURVEYS of the seabed start in Western Port this week as part of planning for the major container port at Hastings. Equipment, crews, barges and surveying equipment will be based at the BlueScope Steel wharf as the Port of Hastings Development Authority carries out the first marine site surveys for the project. Marine geotechnical and geophysical surveys are being carried out by contractors Worley Parsons and Aurecon for the port authority. Mariners, anglers and recreational water users are being told to stay at least 100 metres away from barges and survey vessels. “The surveys will provide the critical information on the seabed conditions of Western Port that are needed to begin three to four years of detailed planning for a new, world-class, competitive and sustainable second container port for Victoria,” the authority’s CEO Mike Lean said. Two 17.2 metre by 12 metre jack-up barges being assembled at the wharf will be towed to up to 110 locations, collecting marine geotechnical data to “inform port design and detailed scientific studies”. “The commencement of marine surveys signals a key milestone in the

Husqvarna Spring Specials

progress of the container expansion project,” Mr Lean said. “Each barge and its crew vessels will remain in the water over the next six to nine months – subject to weather conditions – collecting geotechnical samples from key locations in the port area, existing shipping channels and the anchorage.” Mr Lean said most samples would be collected north of Long Island Point, “which is the focus of container expansion planning”. He said a geophysical survey vessel would take up to three months using sonar reflection and profiling techniques to map the physical features of the seabed. No surveys would be carried out between 21 December and January, and there would be no geotechnical surveys in the anchorage during the summer school holidays. Mr Lean said the surveys were allowed under the Victorian Coastal Management Act 1995 and an environmental management plan had been approved. “We are confident these works can be conducted safely and with minimal impact to the environment,” Mr Lean said.

Bitter-sweet day as toy runners honour founder IT was a bitter-sweet Peninsula Toy Run on Saturday when a record number of riders took part. Many entered for the first time to honour organiser John Smollen, who died a week before the 13th annual run at age 78. Mr Smollen of Pearcedale, a member of the Ulysses Club’s Mornington Wanderers branch and former member of Two Bays branch, devoted many hours each year finding sponsors and organising the run. His funeral was held on Monday at Peninsula City Church in Frankston before a motorcycle hearse led a cortège of cars and motorcyclists to Old Tyabb cemetery near Hastings. Toy runners on Saturday collected food and toys for more than 1500 hampers to be given to underprivileged families by Southern Peninsula Food For All. The event drew many spectators, who enjoyed seeing riders dressed in Christmas costumes on decorated bikes. Several had Santa with a photo of a smiling John Smollen. There are moves to name the event the John Smollen Memorial Toy Run as well as install a plaque on Frankston foreshore to honour his work. Bikes gathered in Frankston pier’s car park for the run. They were led by John Smollen’s son David Smollen. Mike Hast

Alas, chainsaw carver’s gnome not home WORLD renowned chainsaw carver Angie Polglaze’s Christmas gnome has been stolen from a business in Hastings. The 1.5-metre high sculpture worth $600 was taken over the weekend of 30 November and 1 December from the Tree and Stump Eater’s yard in Frankston-Flinders Rd. Polglaze, who now lives in Hastings, is hoping someone will spot the distinctive gnome and bring him home. So too is C J and Shane Bannister, owners of the business where Polglaze sells pieces on commission. She has eight in the yard. Also taken during the raid was a Polglaze pig about the height of a seat, worth $450. The theft was reported to police. The artist is hoping she is not the victim of the so-called travelling gnome prank, where someone steals a gnome, takes it on a trip and photographs it at famous landmarks. The first instance occurred in Australia in 1986 when a Sydney woman discovered her gnome had been stolen and a note left in its place: “Dear mum, couldn’t stand the solitude any longer. Gone off to see the world. Don’t be worried, I’ll be back soon. Love Bilbo xxx” Polglaze made the pelicans on Hastings’ foreshore as well as the octopus and dolphin sculptures at Rye, and four farmyard sculptures in Dunns Rd Reserve in Mt Martha, the most admired of which is a totem of four pigs and black duck.

The artist first had a go at chainsaw carving in 1997 and was hooked. She has been a full-time, self-described “chainsaw chick” since then with 50 public art projects to her credit in Australia, United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Germany. Polglaze has won numerous awards at chainsaw carving events in Australia, the US and Scotland, often defeating men. She was the inspiration behind the first female-only chainsaw carving competition in the US in 2003. Her image was depicted on the medal. In 2004 she carved for the first time as a professional at a “power carving” competition in Oregon, US, and finished third. In 2007 she was a founding member of international female carving team the Chainsaw Chix. Her work, mostly made of reclaimed cypress pine, can be purchased at Mornington Farmers Market on Saturday, 8.30am-1pm, at Mornington Park near the foreshore end of Main St. If anyone has information about the missing Christmas gnome, call Hastings police on 5970 7800 or the Tree and Stump Eater, 5978 0181.

Paladino at church carols PENINSULA residents can hear the talent of highly acclaimed singer Silvie Paladino at this year’s New Peninsula Baptist Church carols concert. Paladino is regarded as having one of the best female voices in Australia with a remarkable range that enables her to sing everything from jazz to opera. She is known to audiences around Australia and the United Kingdom through her regular stage and screen appearances, including Les Miserables, Cats, Miss Saigon, Mamma Mia and Chess as well as a regular favourite at Carols by Candlelight.

She will be performing on the peninsula for one night only at the church’s Away in a Manger concert, which will feature a host of peninsula acts. Paladino said she was looking forward to visiting the peninsula for the concert, which she described as a “unique production”. “The peninsula is such a beautiful place, especially at Christmas time,” she said. “It’s great to be a part of such a unique production; so much love is put into it each year and there’s always something for everyone.” Also performing at the free Christmas event will be eight-year-

old Lily and her 11-year-old brother Toby. “We begin playing with a nativity set and it comes to life and grows full size,” Toby said. “Some of my other toys come to life, too; it’s really funny.” The event will include free children’s activities between shows including face painting, a jumping castle and live music, and a kiosk will serve dinner at a small cost. The concert is from 5-7.30pm on Sunday 15 December at New Peninsula Baptist Church, 370 Craigie Rd, Mt Martha.

Police campaign targets drink and speed By Mike Hast POLICE will be out in force on the Mornington Peninsula over summer, targeting drink-drivers and speedsters, says Sergeant Dave Collins, one of two highway patrol bosses in the region. The region has extra money from the Transport Accident Commission for more police shifts to ramp up the longrunning Operation Back Roads, which sees officers in marked and unmarked cars patrolling minor peninsula roads to test drivers for alcohol and drugs. “We’re conducting random breath testing every day,” he said.

Booze and drug bus operations will be conducted on highways, Peninsula Link freeway and other major roads. He said a recent tactic was to set up on all roads leading to major intersections. Recent operations had been conducted in Mornington, Sorrento, Baxter, Tyabb and Hastings. “We set up at the intersection of Melbourne and Hughes roads in Sorrento, and at Coolart and Graydens roads near Hastings, and were disappointed with the number of people caught drink-driving,” Sergeant Collins said. “Some peninsula people still think

they can get away with drink-driving.” Extra police would concentrate on the southern peninsula in particular. Sergeant Collins said a new law coming in next year would allow police to impound cars of drivers caught with a blood alcohol reading of 0.10, twice the legal limit. Fixed speed cameras on Peninsula Link and mobile cameras in police cars would target speeding drivers, he said. “We’ll still be patrolling Peninsula Link despite speed cameras being turned on recently,” he said. Transport Accident Commission money would also allow more speed

camera patrols on the peninsula. Another arrow in the police quiver is the new BlueNet patrol car with its number place identification camera and computer. It started operating earlier in the month and allows police to check for unregistered cars and unlicensed drivers while the patrol car is on the move. Sergeant Collins said unregistered cars and unlicensed drivers were “over-represented in accident statistics and we want to remove them from the roads”. Operation Summer Stay would see police visually inspecting vehicles and

putting unsafe cars off the road. Inspecting vehicles has the backing of Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce, the peak automotive industry body in Victoria. A spokesman said drivers of vehicles found to be unsafe or unroadworthy being served with defect notices was fully supported by the VACC. “There are more unsafe vehicles on our roads than people realise,” the spokesman said. “Our final vehicle safety figures for the year make disturbing reading. The research shows 40 per cent of vehicles on Victoria’s roads have a defect.”

Signing up for history VISITORS to Jack Babington Park on the foreshore at Hastings can now find out about the history behind the name. A new sign at the park includes a map and history of the area known as Old Tyabb, which was added to the township of Hastings in 1889. Historian Valda Cole collated the history of Old Tyabb for the sign, which she unveiled at an informal ceremony on Thursday 5 December. The sign shows visitors the early tracks linking distinguishing features and waterholes of the area as well as acknowledging the contribution of former councillor and three times shire president of Shire of Hastings the late Jack Babington. “Acknowledging the cultural significance this area holds for the Bunurong/Boonwurrung people, we also consciously installed the signs on existing structures to avoid the potential of disturbing items of significance,” Cr David Garnock said.

Bikers at protest rally MOTORCYCLISTS from the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston joined about 2000 riders outside Parliament House on Sunday last week to protest tough new laws being introduced in Queensland. Bikers are complaining about heavyhanded treatment from Victoria Police and fear Queensland laws could be introduced in Victoria. Victorian riders met at about 10 places, including in the car park of a fast food outlet on Western Port Highway at Skye, before riding into the city for a rally that included speeches by God’s Squad leader Dr John Smith and rebel Catholic priest Father Bob Maguire. “Victorian cops are acting more like they’re in Queensland,” one rider said. In Queensland, one of most contro-

versial parts of the law is the shift of onus onto bikers to prove they’re not part of a criminal gang, instead of the other way around. In October it was announced that Federal and Victorian police had formed a special strike team to target outlaw motorcycle gangs. Premier Denis Napthine said a strong response to bikie gangs was needed. “These gangs are involved in drugs, violence, extortion and standover tactics,” he said. Dr Smith said the state was penalising all bikers for the sins of a few. We just want to show people that we’re not all crooks; there are good people affected by these laws, he said. Rally co-organiser Dale Maggs told The News police were taking anti-bikie

actions to extremes. “Police have been harassing riders who belong to social biker clubs,” he said. “Even if you’re riding on your own, police pull you over.” Mr Maggs’s family has been associated with the Cranbourne toy run for 30 years. In October, the Victorian government introduced anti-fortification laws that allow police to obtain court orders to tear down walls, fences and other defences at bikie clubhouses.

Faster mobiles TELSTRA has extended its 4G service to Sorrento, Somers, Crib Point, Balnarring, Somerville, Hastings and Pearcedale. Areas still to be provided with the faster mobile download service include Mornington, Mt Eliza, Mt Martha and Rosebud. The new areas for the 4G network were switched on last week, allowing for faster “streaming movies, downloading music and internet browsing”, according to Telstra Country Wide’s area general manager for Melbourne southeast Vicky Allen. Ms Allen said the service gave more peninsula people “speeds as fast as those in capital cities” and “four times that of any competitor”. The increased 4G coverage makes faster downloads and uploads available to 85 per cent of the peninsula’s population, up from 66 per cent at the end of June.

COMMUNITY groups and chambers of commerce on the Mornington Peninsula can borrow a “graffiti removal system” to erase unwanted “artwork” from buildings. Mornington Peninsula Shire has been given six portable graffiti removal kits by the state government’s community crime prevention program. A news release from the shire said the kits “will supplement the significant graffiti removal work already being undertaken by the shire across the peninsula”. They include a high-pressure water cleaner, electrical cords, chemicals, safety equipment and instructions on how to remove graffiti.

Hastings ‘sets standard’ in supported housing By Chris Brennan A HOUSING development program dubbed the “Hastings model”, which provides a self-supporting community for people with disabilities, will be officially opened in Marine Pde early next year but residents have already moved into some of the units. The development, 20 independent units and a supported group home providing 24-hour care, has been recognised as the first of its kind in Australia. The idea for the development came from a group of peninsula aged parents of children living with disabilities who banded together to develop a longterm solution to the accommodation crisis faced by their adult children and other people who have limited affordable housing options. The group became known as the Frankston Peninsula Carers, a volunteer organisation. It supports families in conjunction with government agencies, Mornington Peninsula Shire and Community Housing Victoria. In 2009, Frankston Peninsula Carers sourced land in Marine Pde, Hastings, and approached the shire to seek support for the proposal and to raise money from state and federal governments. Carers chairwoman Joy Jarman said the Hastings model was not just about providing a roof over people’s heads, but building a supportive community where residents could share communal areas and grow together in a self-supporting community. “Our main concern was to provide long-term appropriate housing for

adults with an intellectual disability and we are thrilled with this innovative model,” she said. “It provides good-quality, affordable accommodation for a range of people with varying abilities and backgrounds in a fantastic location close to public transport, shops and essential services. “Most importantly it gives some level of security and certainty for residents and their parents about their future accommodation and will change the lives of many people including aged carers.” Community Housing Victoria will manage the 20 social housing properties and tenancies. Karingal Konnections and Department of Human Services manage the group home. “The project is a great example of collaboration and commitment between the state government and local organisations such as Community Housing Victoria and Frankston Peninsula Carers in delivering affordable housing for those who need it in the community,” Community Housing Victoria state manager Brett Wake said. “We are pleased to see the completion of the units and the provision of another level of accommodation for those living with a disability and look forward to continuing this successful partnership in the future.” Project organisers have also raised funds for the development of a communal area, which forms a focal point for the development and includes a garden space, raised garden beds and barbecue area.

Somerville shines on the greens TWO members of Somerville Bowling Club have taken top honours in competitions outside the club’s normal arena. Brendan Elliott won a gold medal in the intellectually disabled category at this year’s Victorian Multi Disabilities Championships. In previous years he has won bronze and silver at the same event. The club’s women’s champion Anita Jenkins is the first female bowler to win the Royal Australian Navy national lawn bowls open singles competition. The competition attracted navy bowlers from all over Australia, including first division members of the navy team that has won the interservice defence competition for the past three years. In the lead-up to the final, Jenkins beat Robbie Dixon, Ross Mitchell and Murray Piggott, all first division bowlers. In the final she beat favourite Jason Smith 31-21. Smith has represented the defence force at the national level and has qualified for the Australian open for the past two years. Jenkins is also the first woman to be selected in the Australian Services Bowls Association (ASBA) national squad.

Winning rounds: Top, champion bowler Anita Jenkins with Jason Smith. Left, Brendan Elliott, Victoria Bowls president Rosemary Vardy and Ben Peachey.

Ride gets easier for disabled surfers By Keith Platt DISABLED surfers are in for a more comfortable ride when surfing at Point Leo next year. Over winter the Mornington Peninsula branch of the Disabled Surfers Association has been trialling a device that allows surfers to sit rather than lie on the board. Depending on their disability, some of the surfers at DSA events have been lying on their backs while volunteers form a line to the beach in case they wipe out. But the peninsula branch has developed a bead-filled “seat” that allows a disabled surfer to sit up and enjoy the view as they surf toward the shore. Branch treasurer John Bowers credits the idea of using a bead bag to DSA’s Ocean Grove branch president Mark Beshara “who was floating around his pool on an Aqua Duck and reckoned they would be good for participants on event days”. The bead-filled floating seat for swimming pools “proved to be really good; people could float off in them if they wiped out”. However, Mr Bowers said it was soon realised the back rest needed to be higher and the front of the circular bead bag lower. The search to make the surfboard seat functional, comfortable and safe eventually involved sitting one Aqua Duck on top of another and taking beads out of the front section. “The Western Australian DSA gr oup, with the help of the University

Test pilot: Jenny Goodall-Angliss testing the new surfing seat at Point Leo with a team from the Disabled Surfers Association’s Mornington Peninsula branch. Picture: Keith Platt

of WA, had come up with a chair made of poly tubing that could be attached to a surfboard,” Mr Bowers said. “This was brought up as an idea at [a meeting] at Collaroy in 2012 but was considered dangerous. “Gary Morton [former peninsula branch president] was inspired by the idea of having participants sit up when he changed his piloting position on the board, which allowed participants to sit up and lean back on him while he was sitting up on the board. “I worked with him at our last event earlier this year and saw that his positioning was a real balancing act that few others could manage. Also, he could damage his knees badly and if the board pearled, his weight would be on top of the participant. “With the help of Bill Hallett, who is now our secretary, and Robin and Don Ferguson of Solve Disability Solutions, the new improved Aqua Duck evolved.” Mr Bowers said the seat had been “accepted enthusiastically” at the DSA’s national annual meeting at Queenscliff in August. Sponsorship by Amway saw the marketing company donate enough money for two seats to be provided to each of the DSA’s 15 branches.

Surf’s up at Point Leo THE Mornington Peninsula branch of the Disabled Surfers Association has scheduled two events at Point Leo in the new year. The surfing events are increasing in popularity, with hundreds of volunteers helping disabled surfers have an enjoyable and safe time in the surf. Wide-tyred wheelchairs are used on the sand and lines of volunteers stand in the water to make sure the surfers

can be quickly helped if they fall off. Volunteers are asked to bring swimwear, including wetsuits and booties if required, to Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club by 9am on Saturday 18 January and 1pm Saturday 15 March. There will be a free barbecue for participants and volunteers. Register at infodsamp@gmail.com or www. disabledsurfers.org

LETTERS Project ill-conceived RECENT publicity about problems within the Western Port Chamber of Commerce and Industry should be seen in context (“Chamber accused”, The News, 3/12/13 and “Chamber pursues renew”, 26/11/13). The chamber’s funding model is not compromised because of the failure of the Renew Hastings project. That project was ill-conceived and obviously not investigated thoroughly by the chamber before an application for the funding was made. The chamber’s main source of revenue is a compulsory levy on commercial property owners using the statutory powers of Mornington Peninsula Shire under the Local Government Act, which is secure for another three years. How the benefits of that funding source are measured by the chamber appears to reinforce the contention by [chamber marketing and promotions officer] Sarah McLennan that transparency is not a priority. If it is not measured, it cannot be managed. For the record, the first female president of the Western Port Chamber of Commerce and Industry was local solicitor Jillian Brann from 1989-90. Further, the U3A (University of the Third Age) group did not obtain permission to use 26 High St for its recent art exhibition under the auspices of the renew project; it was a private arrangement between that group and my landlord who is a professional sculptor. Chris Watt, real estate agent, Hastings

Renewal reservations I HAVE been saddened to read about the comments and problems besetting the local chamber of commerce in The News. The Biblical analogy of “a house divided will fall” comes to mind. I attended the meeting held for the guest speaker and his grand plan for a special precinct [Hastings Renewal]. The speaker admitted he had just arrived and had not spent time in Hastings. He seemed more interested in describing his conquests and successes, and possible business opportunities. I wondered how he or his company could possibly assist in the rejuvenation of our local shopping precinct. There is a process to go through to ascertain if such a project will work and the first is to walk the talk of the town, its present shopowners, availability and type of shops. Then come up with a plan. I have been the chairman of a much larger chamber of commerce in central Queensland and also had some experience in similar type of ideas espoused at the meeting. Those who were the hosts, including the shire officers, were on a high over the presenter and, therefore, during question time, any matters that may have been at odds were obviously not encouraged. Therefore I asked no questions from the floor. At the end of the meeting, I approached the two people who had been hosting the meeting. Because I questioned the idea, I was basically

ignored. They did not want to know. I was interviewed on camera and also left my particulars on the sheet provided as a contact list. I have heard nothing. This type of venture requires clusters, not broken strip shopping, and the goodwill of shopowners. Strip shopping centres will not lend themselves to this type of opportunity. You need to have the present shopowners on side and this is difficult when you are espousing businesses in the Hastings precinct, who they may consider, with good reason, could be in competition on what could be seen as a nonlevel playing field. There has to be a win-win for existing business as well as potential operators. For such an enterprise to be considered, it is necessary to find a niche market, businesses that would co-exist together and also be part of a tourist conduit to bring shoppers to the region. Some empty shops could be seen by some business owners being vacant as a tax advantage in a write-off or potential negative gearing. Hastings could be poised as a special precinct for some of the local industries, tourism, agricultural for cluster industries. The town would then become a focus and window to these activities, using local shops to act as a mirror to those products. Those in charge of the meeting were more focused on a guru-type approach rather than listening to the wishes and ideals of the local community. If you have to hand back funding to government instrumentalities, it is not good and would not augur well in obtaining future funding. Those responsible for administering the funding, irrespective of their good intentions, would be seen by government departments with fear, as they don’t want to be associated with what they may perceive as failed ventures. William G T Barber, Hastings

Short-term boost IT is classic short-term thinking by estate agents to lobby for the Port of Hastings development. If the development does proceed, there will some sort of boost in employment (although there is no certainty as to where the workforce will be sourced from) and this will most likely translate into a rise in rental demand and a shortterm boost for local business. But once the operational stage is implemented, the workforce demand will decline rapidly. The Port of Hastings Development Authority has openly stated that the facilities will be designed to be as close to total automation as possible – even to the extent of minimal lighting due to the lack of people working at night. Ensuing from this will be an exodus of workers from the region, a sharp rise in unemployment and a real and sudden slump in business. Exacerbating this will be an ongoing and irreversible fall in tourism and recreational user numbers – after all, who will want to come to an industrial wasteland on the shores of a degraded and dying bay? Chris Duffy, Balnarring

Festive time for crims POLICE have warned Western Port residents to expect a spike in break-ins and thefts over the holiday period as thieves target Christmas presents and empty homes. Crime data shows Christmas presents an attractive target for thieves with more break-ins occurring over the summer holiday period than any other time of year. Police statistics show of the 28,000 residential burglaries reported to police over the past financial year, more than 2600 occurred in January. Southern Metro Region Acting Assistant Commissioner Doug Fryer said residents could do far more to protect their homes from being targeted by burglars. “We know incidents of residential burglary traditionally increase during the Christmas and New Year holiday period,” he said. “Intelligence tells us that while a lot of people take holidays and are enjoying the festive season, it seems some might drop their guard on home security. If you are planning to go away, the key is to make it look like someone is home – get your neighbours to collect the mail, close the curtains and hang some old clothes on the line. “If you see someone hanging around residential areas and acting suspiciously, it’s important that

you contact police immediately.” Thieves were also targeting Christmas shoppers’ vehicles, he said. “It’s about using common sense. Don’t leave all your Christmas shopping in full view in the car or small electronic goods like portable music devices and smart phones. “Make sure you lock your vehicle when leaving it in the car park. It’s not news to us that a lot of thefts occur when doors are left open or the stolen goods were in clear sight.” Senior Sergeant Karen Nyholm of Hastings police said Christmas presented an enticing opportunity for thieves, with the lure of desirable consumer items such as electronic gadgets, TVs and jewellery readily accessible. “Avoid attracting attention to your home by ensuring packaging is not visible in bins or nature strips,” Senior Sergeant Nyholm said. “Take the shopping straight home and avoid leaving parcels in the car. Having to re-do the shopping lists after thieves have taken your first purchases is frustrating and expensive.” She said thieves often targeted peninsula holidaymakers. “As you take the day trip to the peninsula, or head away for the weekend, remember that thieves follow holidaymakers.” Chris Brennan Western Port News 10 December 2013

Saving lives a world away By Chris Brennan WHEN Rye surf lifesavers Charles Lyne and Robyn Lain learned that 35 children drown every day in Vietnam, they felt compelled to do something to help. With many years of experience saving lives on the Mornington Peninsula as volunteers with Surf Life Saving Australia, the pair set out on a new path four years ago to help bring the skills learned through one Australia’s most respected organisations to the beaches and waterways of Vietnam. Research by the United Nations published in 2012 showed childhood drowning in Vietnam was largely unreported and not recognised as a significant health issue due to the fact it was not recorded in hospital statistics.

More disturbingly, the report found the vast majority of drownings were preventable. Not being one to sit back and wait for others to act, Mr Lyne brought together a number of concerned Victorians with either swimming or lifesaving backgrounds and formed not-for-profit company Water Safety Vietnam. All members of WSV are volunteers and contribute because they believe they can make a difference to the lives of people in Vietnam. Over the past four years, 27 volunteer teachers from Australia and seven recruited from Vietnam have joined the organisation. Since 2011, WSV has trained more than 320 teachers, 102 going on to become fully trained AUSTSWIM teachers.

“In 2011 we had one visit, in 2012 we had four visits and in 2013 we sent volunteers five times including covering the Vietnamese school holidays, which is when there is a spike in drowning due to the fact many children are at home or out adventuring during the day when their parents are at work,” Mr Lyne said. “There is an emphasis on training Vietnamese teachers so the knowledge and skills are built up within the Vietnamese community and the program is sustainable.” Four years on, WSV has established a committee of more than 20 people working toward assisting the people of Vietnam to prevent drownings. “As a not-for-profit company, and without any government assistance,

we are all responsible for fundraising,” Mr Lyne said. “We have the volunteers willing to go, all we need is funding. “We have taught more than 400 kids to swim and distributed hundreds of pairs of bathers and brought smiles to

the faces of many children and parents.” The group’s next fundraiser is a dinner on Saturday 14 December at Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club. Details: Robyn Lain, 0413 493 893.

No go for dog day afternoons By Chris Brennan NEW restrictions on walking dogs in Mornington Peninsula National Park are now in force, with pet owners warned they face hefty fines for breaches. Dogs are prohibited at all times along an additional seven kilometres of coastline between Portsea and Flinders and can only be walked on leashes between sunrise and 9am within a limited number of signposted areas in the national park. Areas where early morning on-leash walking is permitted include a 14km section of coast between Sorrento and Rye, and signposted areas at Portsea surf beach, St Andrews beach and Flinders ocean beach. There are a number of alternative dog walking areas at some Port Phillip beaches as well as public reserves managed by Mornington Peninsula Shire. Rangers have warned the new regulations, introduced in spring, would be strictly enforced and violators would be prosecuted and fined Parks Victoria head ranger Kris Rowe said the restrictions were designed primarily protect wildlife, such as the endangered hooded plover, which is particularly susceptible to dog attacks, as well as to avoid potential conflict with other visitors. “The national park’s primary purpose is to conserve native flora and

fauna,” he said. “We’re pleased that most people are adhering to the new regulations but this is a timely reminder for people as they head out to enjoy the warmer weather. “The standard fine for [breaking the rules] is $289, but recent patrols have resulted in two individuals being fined $1000 and $900 respectively plus costs. “I cannot emphasise enough the importance of reading the signs placed at every formal entry point to the national park. They always provide the correct information to follow.” One group of dog owners more than happy with the new regulations is the Rye-based 16th Beach Dog Walking Group, which has taken a protective stance toward local hooded plover populations The group was “delighted” members would be able to continue social walks on the beach within the specified hours without having a negative impact on hooded plovers. “With the breeding season now in full swing, the group’s members are keen to show that by following beach regulations and having our dogs on their leads and walking at the specified times within the pathway and, once on the beach, walking close to the shoreline, our social activities can progress in harmony along with the native wildlife,” walking group member Brenda Harding said. “We have fought very hard to keep

Canine capers: Parks Victoria ranger Kris Rowe talks with 16th Beach Dog Walking Group members during early morning walkies. Picture: Yanni

16th Beach open to dog walkers between dawn and 9am, and are very thankful to Parks for this. “We only ask that everyone makes a concerted effort to walk their dogs on their leads within the correct hours on the shoreline, and not walk up in the

dunes where you would be disturbing the nesting plovers and native fauna. “By doing this, we will all be able to co-exist and we will always be able to walk our dogs on our local back beach.” For detailed information and maps of

the areas available for dog walking in Mornington Peninsula National Park, visit www.parks.vic.gov.au or call 13 1963. For advice on alternative dog walking areas outside the national park, visit the shire’s website at www.morn pen.vic.gov.au or call 1300 850 600.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Store narrowly avoids fire disaster; Frankston garden in danger Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 20 December 1913 A SMALL fire, though one which may easily have been a serious conflagration, occurred at the rear of Mr McDonald’s store at Frankston at 4.30 a.m. on Tuesday. It appears that some rubbish was left burning, and during the night this spread to some empty cases, which ignited. Fortunately the blaze was noticed in time, and Mr Cunningham rang the fire bell. The brigade were quickly on the scene, and the fire was soon put out. A large number of cases of kerosene were stacked within a few yards of the fire, and had the flames spread to them the result would have been more serious. *** RESIDENTS of Frankston, as well as visitors to the town, to whom the beautifully kept street gardens have been such a pleasure, will regret to learn that, unless some suitable arrangements can be made, they will most likely deteriorate to what they were before. The pump has broken down; the man who did the pumping has gone away, and difficulty is experienced in getting anyone to take his place. It is too much to expect Mr Reynolds to look after the gardens and pump water too. His position is an honorary one, and has been for two years, and the work he has done in the gardens has been well worthy of substantial remuneration. Unless something is done at once and a proper supply of water kept up, the gardens, and two years’ labor, will be destroyed in a few days.

*** TO allow our staff the usual relaxation during Xmas week, there will be no publication of the Standard next week, December 27th. We take the opportunity of wishing our readers, correspondents, advertisers, and clients generally, a Merry Xmas and a bright and prosperous New Year. *** AN extra attraction in Frankston on New Year’s Day will be the Choral and Orchestral concert in the evening at the Mechanics’ Hall. *** QUITE a buzz of excitement was caused when the band stepped into Bay Street on Tuesday night, playing one of their competition pieces. *** THE Mornington Racing Club will make a profit of about £10 over their recent meeting, and in addition the whip given by Major Campbell and raffled realised nearly £20. *** ON Wednesday night after the Church of England concert, Mr Scarborough was returning home when three young men stuck him up and demanded the door takings. Fortunately he had handed them over before leaving the hall. *** THE committee of the Osborne State School are to be complimented for arranging such an enjoyable programme for the children yesterday. A concert was held in the schoolroom. Luncheon and afternoon tea was provided, and all kinds of games and races were indulged in. Every child received a prize.

*** MR Frank Jolly, of Brisbane (Q.), who will be a competitor in the Sheffield handicap and 220 yards event at the local New Year’s Day sports, last week won his heat and semi-final in the Brachenress (Q.) Sheffield handicap, and in the final ran a dead heat with F. Morris, to whom Jolly conceded 21 yards start. ***

Mr R. Bates, who has been on a tour of Great Britain, returned this week. “Bob’s” many friends were all pleased to see him back again. THE Frankston Brass Band acknowledge with thanks £1 1s, donation to uniform fund from Mr W. Williams, ‘Rupertstan,’ Langwarrin. The band will appear in uniform next Saturday night in Bay Street, and render a programme of musical items. The uniforms lately received have given general satisfaction. We regret to state a large amount is still owing on uniforms. The band hope its admirers will come forward and

show their admiration in a practical way. Donations will be gratefully received by members of the band committee:- Messrs Lawrey, Willox, Croskell, Bunney, Millard and the secretary, J. L. Guumes. Practice still continues for the A.N.A. competitions in February, and in order to get acquainted with competition work the band will be taking part in the competitions to be held at Beaufort on Boxing Day, each bandsman defraying his own expenses. *** MR Edgar Thornell, of Somerville, has been distinguishing himself in his studies at the Continuation school. He has just secured a scholarship which admits him to continue his studies at Queen’s College at the University. *** FOR a vacancy existing as patron of the Melbourne Home and Mission, Major C. W. Campbell, of Amesfield Park, Frankston, is to be nominated. The Major and Mrs Campbell have always been good loyal friends and supporters of this charitable cause. *** VERY satisfactory entries have been received for most of the events to be run off on New Year’s Day at Frankston, there being 60 for the Sheffield, 39 for the 220 yds handicap, 22 for each of the bike events, and 8 for each of the two chops. The handicaps appear in another column. *** MR S. S. Gault, of Somerville, reports having sold to Mrs Hawken, senr., three blocks of land situated in the centre of the Somerville township at a satisfactory price. It is

Mrs Hawken’s intention to erect a residence on the blocks at an early date. *** THE friends of Mr E. Worrall, of Frankston, will regret to learn of the very serious indisposition of his father, at Albury. Mr Worrall left Frankston on Saturday last, to be at his father’s bedside, and from word received from him he seems to entertain little hope of his father’s recovery. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to him in his trouble. *** AT the last meeting of the Mornington Shire Council, Cr Campbell drew attention to several matters which, he alleged, had been neglected by the Secretary, and he submitted a motion to fix the office hours of the secretary, which was not seconded. Cr Campbell appeared to feel strongly on the matter, and said he would resign, but was persuaded to hold it over for a month. *** HASTINGS Tennis Club visited Frankston on Saturday, 6th inst., and were represented by Rev. C. Eva, Mr Watt, Cr James Hodgins and Mr Alf. Boulter. Owing to the even nature of the play there was not sufficient time to finish the match, but an enjoyable afternoon’s play resulted in a win for Hastings by two games:- Hastings 42 games, Frankston 40 games. Frankston was represented by Rev. G. A. Kitchen, Mr C. Watson, Dr Maxwell and Mr Norman Jackson.

Bamboo Cottage Everybody wants to CHINESE RESTAURANT ruler the world By Stuart McCullough ONCE upon a time, there was paper. Using either a pen or pencil, it was customary to write on sheets of paper in order to communicate with others. This was before the computer made the art of handwriting almost wholly redundant. Back then, a tweet was something you wrote down, put in an envelope and mailed to another person. Several weeks later, you might receive a response to your written missive. Granted, it was painstakingly slow, but the world was a better place for it. It was an era when it was okay not to know what Lady Gaga had for breakfast and Shane Warne’s thoughts on almost everything remained his alone. It was, in other words, a paradise. In primary school, the first task of the day was always to copy down whatever the teacher had written on the blackboard. I often wish I had paid more notice. Even then I found copying down someone else’s work tiresome and really didn’t give the task my full attention. As a result, my attempts to transcribe the day’s date resembled an ant that had been dipped in ink and sent on a one-way trek. If only I’d paid more attention, I feel my handwriting could have been better. We were only allowed to write in printed script. At that time, cursive script was regarded with awe as something that only grownups were allowed to do. Our teachers argued that printing was easier to read and that I was just the exception to the rule. But it wasn’t only my handwriting that left much to be desired – my style of presentation more broadly meant I was doomed to fail. We would write in exercise books, with a different book for each subject. But before a single letter was added to the page, there was the matter of ruling a border. There were many ways to go about this seemingly simply preparatory task. Perhaps inevitably, I took the most direct and least imaginative approach possible: I placed my ruler to the left of the page and drew a red line down the side. For me, it was something I had to get out of the way before getting on with the real business of school. Others, however, spent more time preparing their borders than they did on their actual class work. They too began with a simple line. Then they broke out the big guns. I only ever had regular pens, but some of my classmates were lucky enough to own the Titanic of biros – the four-in-one pen. A simple click of a button was all it took to transport you away from everyday blue ink to something as full-on exotic as green. Truth is, green ink serves very little practical purpose and exists largely for decorative

purposes. From a simple border would spring decorative patterns and flowers that made my pages seem impossibly dull. By lesson’s end, the paper would be so heavily inked that it looked like a Comanchero. Their borders were, frankly, bordering on the ridiculous. As you go through school, your relationship to your stationery begins to change. A ruler is no longer something with which to create a very dull and uninspired border. It becomes the site on which you declare your allegiances to particular bands or, if you were particularly bold, another person. Before people announced their relationship status to the world through Facebook, they used to do it on either the ruler or pencil case. In the event that the relationship ended, of course, this would cause all manner of awkwardness, requiring either that the name be blotted out or turned into something else. Much as when people are forced to remove one of their “My Family” stickers, the results were always far from perfect. But rulers were more than just mere billboards. In the schoolyard, there were many ways in which you could settle your differences, but rulers were the weapon of choice for discerning students. There were other options, though. I lived in fear that, one day, a fellow student would issue an invitation to meet behind the shelter shed. I would avoid these confrontations, even though I knew it meant being called “chicken”. Some students preferred the brutality of the compass, but the device was eventually banished, ensuring an entire generation would be useless when it came to drawing a curved line. A ruler, however, was always to hand. It was as simple as it was cruel. All you had to do was hold out your ruler and allow someone else to use theirs to strike it as hard as they could. The object was to split your opponent’s weapon, rendering it useless. Moving your ruler out of the way at the last second was the best way to avoid a strike but was strictly prohibited. Any deviation at all would result in the other person getting a free go. The sound of splintering wood was the sound of defeat. It’s been years since I owned a ruler. The need to put a border on anything simply doesn’t arise. Soon, paper too will be a thing of the past. Even now, I regularly receive emails that invite me to think about the environment before printing it. I’m not sure if I’m supposed to sit quietly and observe a minute’s silence or just feel guilty that I’ve accidentally printed 87 copies rather than the one I needed. If I’m caught, I fear receiving an email invite to meet behind the shelter shed. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Performance GRINSPOON, one of Australia’s favourite rock bands, announced a hiatus before their final show for 2013. Seven albums, 13 ARIA nominations, over half a million records sold and a back catalogue that is etched into Aussie rock history. They’re one of our best-loved and most enduring bands. With well over 1,000 shows, six consecutive Top 10 albums and multiplatinum sales across an amazing 18year career, it’s fair to say Grinspoon have earned some time off. And so the band wishes to announce that they’re taking a long-term, indefinite break, with founding members Phil Jamieson, Pat Davern, Joe Hansen and Kristian Hopes going on a hiatus to pursue individual projects for the forseeable future. www.grinspoon.com.au *** AUSTRALIA’S number one party musical Grease arrives at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Melbourne on 2 January after electrifying sell-out seasons in Brisbane and Sydney. Due to huge demand, new tickets will go on sale on December 2 for performances from March 1-16, 2014. The high-energy, smash hit musical has taken Australia by storm and includes such unforgettable songs as You’re The One That I Want, Grease Is The Word, Summer Nights, Hopelessly Devoted To You, Sandy, Greased Lightnin’ and many more. Leading the all-star cast in the iconic roles of Danny and Sandy are born entertainer Rob Mills and rising star Gretel Scarlett. Bert Newton returns to his radio roots to play the role of slick veteran disc jockey Vince Fontaine, while Todd McKenney dusts off his dancing shoes to star as Teen Angel. The role of All-American, rockstar student at Rydell High, Johnny Casino, is played by Anthony Callea, and television and stage veteran Val Lehman returns to musical theatre

to play tough school principal Miss Lynch. Producer John Frost said: “Rarely have I seen audience reaction like the one we get every night for Grease, with everyone in the aisles dancing and singing along. Grease truly is the number one party musical. Book fast

Melbourne to see Rob, Gretel, Todd, Bert and the gang on stage.” Grease in on at Her Majesty’s Theatre from January 2. Nightly shows with matinees Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Tickets 1300 795 012. www.greaseistheword.com.au ***

indecent pleasures? A five-star hotel in Paris; you can guess the rest? The grief period lasts a year or two, returning for short spells on anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas and (for males) when washing clothes, shopping, cooking and cleaning. I’m no psychologist so I can only give my opinion: Certain attitudes are necessities to maintain a reasonable quality of life. Keeping busy obviously, living in the moment, dismissing thoughts of past or future worries (google, ASIO, early inheritance syndrome), keeping in touch with family and friends, talking, listening, laughing, walking and giving time to recording past happy memories, if any. Keep clear of sex, difficult but dangerous. Perhaps give away the cigarettes? *** WHY do so many people patronize we older people? Sometimes I get this urge to pay out on them but refrain owing to the fact of being a useless fist fighter. I only won the once, at the Preston Town Hall after a dance. I hit him and down he went; victory. Whacko the diddle-o. To use Julia’s words: “You have the right to an environment that treats you with respect as an equal and raising your voice about that is not starting a war or playing the victim. You’re just asking for what is simply right”. Yea Julia. Julia who? Outgoing Peninsula Mayor Lyn Bowden supported the positive age-

ing strategy and the scooter recharge scheme. Good girl Lyn. Oh, the Preston fellow was drunk of course, but you guessed that. *** FRENCHMAN John Lerius spent a year in Brazil around 1557. On arrival, he discovered all the men and woman were nude. Considering the beauty of the Brazilian females generally one would think lust would rear its leering head, as indeed Lerius considered, but his efforts to convince them to hide their privates was unsuccessful. He eventually concluded nakedness did less to entice lasciviousness than women’s clothes and accoutrements, coupled with sparkling eyes and effective carriage. No mention of a nice bottom? *** SUPERANNUATION is the goldmine of our time. It conjures up images of hundreds of various types called various directorial names (unions and businesses) salivating on super funds – $2 trillion and ever upwards. We are regularly informed of a review which, as far as I can see, amounts to keeping the whole massive enterprise vague and hidden from our concern. On the law of averages there lies within many crooks sifting out fees under various titles into their greedy pockets. Superannuation governance, mandatory standards, conflict of interest; be-

ONE of the most influential comedians in entertainment history, John Cleese, is a founding member of Monty Python and responsible for some of the most iconic films and television comedies ever made, including The Life of Brian, Meaning of Life and Fawlty Towers. Cleese also starred in such major Hollywood hits as A Fish Called Wanda and Fierce Creatures. Cleese will head in Melbourne to appear at the Comedy Theatreon 18-19 March. Cleese will regale fans with stories and exclusive clips from his illustrious 40-year career. It’s an opportunity to get up close and personal with a true living legend. Cleese, a force behind some of the most ground-breaking comedy of the 20th Century will perform shows in Tasmania, Melbourne and Sydney. His last national tour in 2012 was a total sell out and this encore tour will be prior to the recently announced Monty Python reunion in London in July. His distinctive English accent has been put to good use on several animated children’s films, voicing King Harold in Shrek 2, Shrek The Third, and Shrek Forever After and Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone; and of course the ever memorable television series Fawlty Towers. Few comedy troupes have reached the same fame of Monty Python, and a large part of that success was due to John Cleese and his impeccable timing and sense of humour. Cleese has mastered everything from dry wit to slapstick humour, making his type of humour one that everyone can enjoy. He is the master comedian and admired and respected by everyone. www.johncleese.com or www.abpresents.com.au *** SINGER/songwriter Aleyce Simmonds (pictured) is among the finalists in the Female Artist of the

By Gary Turner Year category of the 2014 CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia. The announcement, made at Sydney’s Hard Rock Cafe last month, follows news that Believe the title track and first single from Aleyce’s second full-length album, hits the Australian Country Tracks Top 30 and CMC Top 50 countdown. “I feel like I’m caught in a whirlwind”, Simmonds said. “It has been a crazy year recording and releasing an album whilst touring so constantly. This nomination means a real lot to me. I can’t wait to stand still long enough to breathe and take it all in!” Simmonds will appear at the Peninsula Music Festival, Morning Star Estate, Sunday January 12th. www.aleyce.com *** SHOCK Entertainment has released a special Jamie Oliver six DVD box set for Christmas. Jamie Oliver is the person many home-cooks turn to for advice on how to prepare the most important meal of the year, Christmas dinner. These six titles include special guest appearances from Gennaro Contaldo, Jamie’s Mum and even his two daughters Poppy and Daisy. So settle down and let Jamie get you in the mood for the best Christmas ever with this ultimate collection of his festive DVD’s packed full of tips for a stress-free Christmas. Titles include Jamie’s Christmas, Jamie’s Family Christmas, Jamie Cooks Christmas, Jamie’s Best Ever Christmas, Jamie’s Christmas with Bells On and Jamie at Home: Christmas Special.

A Grain of Salt THE big day is again almost upon us. Time to balance the anticipation. A free meal at Portsea, drinking restrictions and an expected behavioural attitude to be “nice”. Perhaps 150 minutes, two stubbies; sounds about right. No politics a big plus, a rest from supercilious Christopher Pyne and my general state of melancholy from both sides of politics. The holiday hordes, pleasant, atmospheric, hell at night. The little nippers on parade; kids, dogs, multiculturalism and the long hot summer; remain inside mostly after 11am, maybe venture out to the Peninsular Summer Music Festival; a drive past the Butterfly House, Dromana, catch a glimpse of Hannie Rayson. A writer-in residence? Nah, too far from the RSL. Way back, 1944, three hours at the Northcote Baths. Or 1974 at home with darling and the chaos of visitors. I did time in the public service, a month of parties; ham, seafood and females, a dangerous mix. The verdict? Even Steven, or perhaps a nostril on the good side. After all, I’m still here right, just? *** LIVING alone is a work in process for oldies who have lost a partner, with Waiting for Godot snuggled in the backblocks of the mind but easily accessed.

yond taxation, beyond accountability? The Australian Securities Investment Commission decided years ago the disclosure of fees was not necessary? Funds manager Chris Brycki says half the investment returns by Aussie savers hve been lost in management fees; ditto superannuation. Crooks all. *** AGE can catch up if you’re not careful. A cold windy morning. The milk is boiling for Vita Brits and I step outside to get the two plastic wrapped deliveries of the Saturday Age. Bugger; only the one? Five minutes of searching failed. Down the driveway to the newsagency and I remember the milk? Rush back, too late, the stove a mess. Back out I go, halfway there when it hit me. It’s Friday! *** YET another push circulating for a swimming pool at Rosebud; fast becoming a War and Peace situation. I’m for a pool on the Rye foreshore and permanent bye byes to the dreaded carnival. It will never come to pass in my lifetime and I would not be swimming in it anyway, but for families and holidaymakers, it’s surely a winner. Wasn’t this part of Nepean MP, Minister for Education Martin Dixon’s platform at the last election? Many believe the bay provides a safe spot for swimmers of all ages but the safety of a supervised pool along the foreshore provides an attractive alternative for those who are freaked out

By Cliff Ellen by sand. I’m advised of Rosebud having a dangerously high incidence of homeless kids; maybe do something about this sad problem first minister? Just a thought. *** AFTER a break of 10 years, I watched 60 Minutes on Channel Nine; missed nothing... Andrew Bolt says Tony Abbott is articulate and Tania Plibersek “spiteful” – hilarious... A strong rumour Collingwood footballers will be required to wear a collar and tie on and off the field during 2014. Perhaps they got rid of the wrong “culture”?... It could be worse: Darryn Lyons as mayor? Thank God he didn’t choose us... Aussies win the test; back to unbearable egoists... In sympathy with ABC salaries disclosures, I’ll declare mine: $21,000...

Doggies’ domination continues PROVINCIAL By IT Gully MORNINGTON continued its domination of the MPCA Provincial competition when it took Moorooduc’s bowlers to the cleaners on Saturday. The Doggies are in red hot form at the minute and it was no surprise that they batted after winning the toss. With conditions perfect at Moorooduc Reserve, Mornington openers Anthony Gapes and skipper Matt Foon put on 67 before Gapes lost his wicket for 26. Foon went on to make 61 and Ben Clements, who came in at number three, top scored with 83. Jake Pankhurst made 30 and Luke Popov blasted five fours and a six on his way to a half century. The Dogs finished their 80 overs at 6/288, which isn’t a huge score at

Moorooduc Reserve. However, with the bowling line-up it has, 288 is more than defendable for the best side in the Provincial caper at present. Michael Whincup was the pick of the bowlers for the Ducs, bowling 28 overs for 2/107. Long Island is just eight runs away from victory against Mt Martha. The Islanders won the toss and wanted to have a crack at the Mt Martha bats. Things started OK for the Reds but soon fell apart, losing 6/8 as Andrew Tweddle and Scott Phillips tore through the top order. Keeper-batsman James Walker was able to prevent further carnage when he made 23. He was well supported by Tim Bateman (19). Kade Bendle also contributed 14 at the top of the order. Mt Martha was bowled out for 75 in 51 overs, Tweedle claiming 5/10

from 14 overs and Phillips 4/30 from 21 overs. The Islanders had to face the last 21 overs for the day and obviously, sensing an outright opportunity, were looking for quick runs. Mt Martha’s bowlers were tight and determined and claimed the first three wickets for just four runs. Paul Hartle, Aaron Paxton and Peter Connell were all sent packing early, before Phillips was removed. At one stage, the Islanders were 4/15. They recovered thanks to Justin Bridgeman (30no) and Fergus O’Connor (19no) to be 4/67 heading into day two. Mt Eliza is in the box seat against Heatherhill after making 297. Luke Marshall was the star of Provincial cricket for the day, coming in with his side struggling at 4/52 and blasting 113. He made 90-odd in round two. Along with Jason Mathers (84),

Marshall was able to push the score to 242 before Mathers lost his wicket. Lyle House then blasted 24 to help his side to 297. Brett Maxwell was the best of the Heatherhill bowlers with 4/88 from 20 overs. In reply, the Hills are 0/16. The match between Langwarrin and Sorrento is in the balance after the first day’s play at David McFarlin Reserve. It is an important game for the Kangas, who were shown-up against Mornington in their last match. They need to perform well against the best in the business to gain the credibility they are looking for. The Kangas won the toss and batted, however quickly went from 0/47 to 3/47. While no Kangaroo went on to post a big score, a number contributed with the bat, including Simon McEvoy (30), Andy Johnson (37),

Mark Cooper (24), Michael Edwards (34), Mal Coutts (20) and Nathan Volpe (30). The reigning District champions were without leading run-scorer Danny Weare. CJ King was the best of the Sorrento bowlers with four wickets, while Mick Dunball and AJ King snared a couple each. In reply, Sorrento is 1/1, with Jedd Flack in the sheds. Peninsula Old Boys will need to bowl well to defend the 206 they made against Crib Point. Glenn Prendergast top scored for the Old Boys with an unbeaten 50 while John Forrest chipped in with 30. It was a good afternoon for the Pies with the ball with Brad Davidson getting 3/47, Henry Dolphin 3/60 and Luke Herrington 2/21.

Main Ridge in red-hot form DISTRICT By IT Gully MAIN Ridge is in red hot form at the moment and it continued on Saturday against Seaford in tound six of District cricket. The Ridge won the toss at Seaford Reserve and sent the home side into bat. It proved to be an educated decision by the Ridge skipper and match-day hero Brendan Rossborough, who watched his bowlers tear through the top and lower order of Seaford. While Ben Lawrence (36) performed well at the top of the order in his first senior XI game this season and

Mathew Herbert contributed 21, the day belonged to the Ridge. Seaford was bowled out for 110 in 54.2 overs. Jason Albress bowled 8.2 overs for a return of 4/25, while James Abbott snared 3/27 from 15 overs. Batting the last 25 overs for the day, what unfolded next was simply superb. The Ridge were looking for quick runs and they got them in the form of Rossborough, who smashed an unbeaten 101. This was on the back of the 64 he made in his last innings. Up the other end, Michael Holmes (20no) watched in amazement. At stumps, the Ridge were 2/147, a lead of 37 with 80 overs to play.

The match between Delacombe Park and Pines is going to be a nailbiter. The Parkers batted first on their home deck on Saturday and could muster only 115 from 53.2 overs. Andrew Christides got 22 and James Spencer 24. Nick Wilcox was at his damaging best with the ball, claiming five wickets, while Ricky Ramsdale picked up four scalps. The Parkers’ bowlers needed to produce something big with the ball to stay in the game. They delivered. Chris Brittain snared 4/25 and Shane Deal took 2/4 to have the Piners reeling at 6/75 in reply.

Flinders has given itself every opportunity to win its match against Somerville after scoring 8/234 on Saturday. Shane Beggs showed some of his best work with 41 while Tommy Clements (40) and brother Robbie Clements (36) offered some real resistance. Early wickets are the key for Flinders on day two. Boneo and Hastings are locked in a real battle. Boneo batted first on Saturday and made 209, Leigh Lowry top scoring with 77. Luke Hewitt is having an outstanding season for the Blues and helped himself to 4/68, while Isuru

Dias picked-up 3/42. In reply, the Blues are 2/40. Carrum declared its first innings at 8/194 against Ballam Park and has the opposition at 1/3 overnight. Shaun Foster top-scored for the Lions with 92 and Josh Dent hit 33. In the final game of the round, Baden Powell has plenty of work to do against Seaford Tigers. The Braves batted first on Saturday and were rolled for just 149. Elia Carter top-scored with 29 and Sam Mullavey hit 28. Jordan Watters was at his best for the Tigers with 3/29. In reply, the Tigers are 0/13.

Hillmen are a 2013 juggernaut SUB-DISTRICT

Close combat: Leigh Lowry top scored for Boneo with 77. Picture: Andrew Hurst

PAGE 50

Western Port News 10 December 2013

By IT Gully THE Sub District juggernaut that is Red Hill continues to rattle the cages of the opposition. This time it was Carrum Downs on the receiving end of the punishment. Red Hill may have started the season a little shaky and inconsistent, however, the cricket the team is playing now is inspired. The Hillmen won the toss on Saturday and elected to send the Cougars into bat. The decision paid dividends, with the home side rolling the visitors for just 78 in 33 overs. Glenn Collett was brilliant, bowling 16 overs and finishing with six maidens and a return of 6/30. Jimmy McCall and Ross Corfield claimed 2/2 and 2/8 respectively. The Hillmen then hit a quickfire 7/138 in 30 overs, with Owen McKillop top-scoring with 40 and Rheede Hopgood making an impression in his first senior XI game with 39. Red Hill then had the last 37 overs of the day to try and make some inroads into an outright win. They succeeded, Ross Corfield claiming another couple of wickets (2/3) to have the Cougars in trouble at 3/38, still 22 runs behind the Hillmen. Brad Trotter enjoyed a wonderful afternoon at the crease for Pearcedale

on Saturday, playing away to Dromana. Opening the batting, Trotter made 100 for the Panthers, while Kaine Smith (51) batted at seven and helped the opener get to three figures. At one stage, the Panthers were 5/92. Smith and Trotter then took the score to 215. Zac Clan picked up five wickets for the Hoppers while Andrew Thompson snared four scalps, including that of Trotter. Skye has set Rosebud a big total of 252 to chase down for victory. A number of Skye batsmen got starts at Rosebud Reserve, keeper Rob Gruar the best of them with 47. Rosebud dominated the early part of the day, taking 5/82. However, Stephen Smart (40) and Paul Fillipone (47) worked with Gruar to set the Buds a more-than-reasonable score to chase. Darren Kerr bowled a staggering 40 overs for the Buds for a return of 4/125 (including 10 maidens), while Brad Glenn picked-up 2/33 in only his second spell for the year. Balnarring looks to be in the box seat against Frankston YCW after setting the home side 286 for victory, while Tyabb and Tootgarook are locked in an intriguing battle. The Yabbies batted first and scrambled to 181. In reply, the Tooters are in some early trouble at 2/34.

Dunes golfers shoot it out for top medal titles THE Dunes Medal, featuring Australia’s best amateur golfers, was held over four days at The Dunes Golf Links. In a thrilling final round, played in testing conditions, Anthony Houston (5 under) of Kingswood Golf Club finished one shot clear of Commonwealth’s Zach Murray and Queenslander Taylor MacDonald (4 under). Houston battled back from making double bogey on the 14th by chipping in for an eagle on 16. Australian representative MacDonald then made a double

bogey himself on the 17th to hand the outright lead to Houston, which he never relinquished. Houston followed in the footsteps of past champions including Jason Day, Kieran Pratt and Bryden Macpherson. In the women’s event, world number 2 Minjee Lee of Western Australia produced a stunning performance to win by 9 strokes from Victorian Bianca Ling and another Western Australian, Hira Naveed. Winning duo: Kingwood Golf Club’s Anthony Houston and Western Australia’s Minjee Lee won the men’s and women’s trophies at the Dunes Medal.

RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Had a very shiny nose, And if you ever saw it, You would even say it glows. All of the other reindeer Used to laugh and call him names; They never let poor Rudolph Join in any reindeer games.

Have Orthotics? we have the shoes for them!

Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say, Rudolph with your nose so bright, Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight? Then how the reindeer loved him As they shouted out with glee, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, You’ll go down in history.
