Garden grows from wave of confusion and sympathy THE news from Japan on Friday 11 March 2011 was horrific. An earthquake and tsunami had devastated the north of the country. News reports were full of difficult-to-believe images: cars and boats looked like toys as they were swept along by an unstoppable wall of water; houses collapsed, large buildings shook and the people supposed to be in control – the government – could do no more than express sorrow and amazement. Younger children at Crib Point Primary School confronted by these images had mixed emotions. It was a confusing day. While life went on as usual in the comfort of their regulated school environment, they knew that life would never be the same again for thousands caught up in the disaster almost half a world away. The school’s chaplain Gary Lewis could see the confusion on young faces reacting to an event of almost unimaginable proportions. The horror was so far away and yet, because of modern communications, so close and immediate. To the younger ones it was probably threatening. At Mr Lewis’s invitation, nearly three-quarters of the school’s 150 pupils gathered around the school’s flagpole in silent contemplation. The moving, ad hoc ceremony spurred discussions about the need for the school to have an area set aside for deeper thoughts. Last Friday, children were planting their own Remembrance Garden in readiness for Monday 11 November – Remembrance Day. The centrepiece of the garden is a one-tonne anchor donated by DMS Maritime, the marine services company at Crib Point, de-rusted and painted by sailors at HMAS Cerberus. Place to remember: Helping plant Crib Point primary’s Remembrance Garden are, from left, Zoe (of French Island’s Perseverance primary), Jasper, Jay, Charlise (sitting) and Simone. Picture: Yanni

Drilling start for port By Keith Platt DRILLING is about to start in the water and on the land to sample the site chosen for an expanded Port of Hastings. Once built, the container port could become the largest in Australia with thousands of ships a year coming in and out of Western Port. Bore samples will be taken from

25 sites on land owned by BlueScope Steel as well as private owners around the Whitneys Rd area in Tyabb Construction of the port north of Long Island Point is expected to start in five years after three years of detailed scientific studies. Planners see Hastings as beginning to take the overflow of containers from

the Port of Melbourne by the mid2020s. Hastings is seen as the only option by the state government for a so-called “megaport� able to cope with demand over the next century. Expanding port facilities at either Stony Point or Crib Point has been ruled out through lack of land and the

necessity for containers to be carried by road through Hastings township. Although the state government is determined to build the new port, the Port of Hastings Development Authority is using the label “feasibility� for its next phase of operations. The authority’s CEO David Lean last week outlined his view of the port’s

progress to members of Western Port Catchment Committee, including news that contractors had been chosen for geotechnical testing. Mr Lean said dredging was needed for the port to handle large container vessels, although to what extent is unknown. Continued Page 8

Councillor resists call to ‘follow orders’ By Keith Platt RED Hill Ward councillor Frank Martin is standing firm against pressure to vote according to the wishes of community groups in his ward. “It is not appropriate for various segments of the community to direct me on the way I should vote,” Cr Martin said. “The Local Government Act requires that councillors act with integrity, and impartially exercise their responsibilities in the interest of the community, both at ward level and whole of the shire. “In taking the oath of office when I was elected, I did so with the full understanding that I was representing some 12,300 electors from within the Red Hill Ward.” Cr Martin’s comments were made in response to minutes made after a meeting he had last month with the Red Hill Ward Consultative Group. The minutes reveal the meeting was held up when members of the group objected to Cr Martin being accompanied by two officers from Mornington Peninsula Shire. Discussions after the officers eventually left centred on Cr Martin’s role in representing the views of community groups and the lack of “direct benefit” the ward was receiving from the shire. Despite being told to “consider his position”, the minutes state, Cr Martin ruled out any chance of resigning. Rumblings of discontent about the performance of Cr Martin first sur-

faced in May. He was re-elected for a second term in October 2012. The sprawling Red Hill Ward stretches from St Andrews Beach in the west to HMAS Cerberus in the east and extends north-south from Merricks to Flinders. It includes Shoreham, Somers, Flinders, Cape Schanck, Red Hill, Balnarring Beach, Point Leo, Main Ridge and parts of Arthurs Seat. Some residents see the ward as being under threat from state government plans to effectively “urbanise” Melbourne’s green wedge land. Earlier this year, members of community groups said they were frustrated over some of their dealings with Cr Martin on issues including his voting pattern, his position on subjects such as the proposed Dromana quarry tip, his unknown stance on green wedge land, and support for a brewery and restaurant complex at Cape Schanck. When contacted last week by The News, Cr Martin said he was “extremely disappointed” that the minutes of the consultative group “have been forwarded to you, without my knowledge or consent”. Cr Martin described the meeting as “a private meeting between me and members of the community”. “I will continue to represent the needs of the ward and the shire, and will reject any attempt by individuals to direct me on how I should vote.” The minutes of the 9 September meet-

ing at the shire’s Rosebud office show it was attended by David Maddocks (Red Hill Community Action), Christine Haydon (Peninsula Speaks), Irene Wyld (Friends of Cape Schanck) and Peter Hall, Peter Monie and Neville Wale (Flinders Community Association). The minutes state Mr Hall “raised the concern about the voting position of FM [Frank Martin] at council meetings and in particular that there were cases where FM voted against the wishes of his constituents”. “FM explained that he had to balance up all the representations and vote accordingly,” the minutes state. “PH said that FM should ‘consider his position’ and ‘resignation’ may be an option. FM said ‘that is not going to happen’. PH pointed out there were three more budgets before the next election and the ward should get a better deal.” Cr Martin was asked to “develop a ‘personal vision’ for the ward and the peninsula rather than adopting the shire’s ‘line’ as Cr Martin represented the constituents who elected him and not the shire”. It was suggested that the group could “feed into” Cr Martin’s “vision” to demonstrate “how he has been or will be able to influence policy”. Cr Martin said there could be a way of him receiving “better input” from the ward group members before council meetings.

Epic journey takes toll on shearwaters DOZENS of short-tailed shearwaters are being found washed up on Mornington Peninsula beaches including at Flinders, Rosebud, Mt Martha and Mornington as well as further up the line at Chelsea. The sorry sight is an annual event as shearwaters, also known as muttonbirds, return to Australia from the northern hemisphere, but the cause of death is still not fully understood. Wildlife photographer Glenn Ehmke said shearwaters were the most abundant seabird species in Australian waters. “They breed on Phillip Island and on small islands in Bass Strait and Tasmania as well as on Mud Islands and the South Channel Fort in Port Phillip,” he said. There were about one million birds on Phillip Island in summer. Babel Island in Bass Strait has 2.8 million birds. “They migrate at the end of our summer to the seas off the Aleutian Islands near Alaska and return in the southern spring down the coast of California and across the Pacific Ocean.” Mr Ehmke, formerly of Mornington and now a Chelsea resident, said it was not uncommon to find dead or dying shearwaters. “We think many die of exhaustion, injuries or starvation during a journey of up to 12,000 kilometres, one of the longest migrations in the world.” He said they were “tough little birds” but lack of food and storms during their flight south take a toll.

“Two years ago, thousands of dead shearwaters were found on beaches on the east and southeast coast of Australia.” A large majority make it home and are now busy feeding on fish and squid. Mr Ehmke said shearwaters make feeding trips into the Southern Ocean travelling 1500 kilometres and leaving their chicks for up to a week or longer.

A recent problem for shearwaters is small pieces of plastic rubbish floating in the seas. This may be one reason why they die during migration. Back in Australia, they pick up plastic and feed it to their chicks. The Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service allows about 200,000 chicks to be removed from their burrows and sold by commercial operators each year. Mike Hast

Shire reveals top 20 ‘assets’ By David Harrison MORNINGTON Peninsula ratepayers can for the first time see a glimpse of the list of shire-owned and controlled land and buildings. Councillors last week agreed to release details of the 20 most valuable assets that help make up the $2 billion total listed in the annual report. Civic Reserve in Mornington tops the list at $24 million, followed by the municipal office in Rosebud at $22.3 million and Sorrento foreshore at $18.9 million. The release follows councillors being asked by The News if they believed ratepayers should know the value of properties managed on their behalf by the shire. Most councillors shied away from expressing their views, saying the mayor, Cr Lynn Bowden, would answer for them. No reply was received from the mayor. Melbourne and Frankston councils recently released lists of their most valuable properties. Cr Graham Pittock, who moved to have the shire follow their example, sought to take the matter further. At the most recent council meeting, he asked that the public be given details of the top 50 shire assets, with a longer list to come. This was opposed by a group led by Cr Anne Shaw, supported by David Garnock, Andrew Dixon – who vacillated between an asset list of 20 and one of 50 – Frank Martin and Antonella Celi. They managed to limit the public’s

Mornington Peninsula Shire’s top-priced properties Civic Reserve, Mornington $24.0m (pictured right) Municipal office, Rosebud $22.3m Sorrento foreshore $18.9m Mt Martha Regional Park $17.1m Mt Martha Community House $12.8m Pelican Park Recreation Centre, Hastings $12.7m (below right) Municipal office, Mornington $11.5m Citation Reserve, Mt Martha $9.9m Mornington foreshore, Schnapper Point Drive $9.8m Mt Eliza Community Hall $7.8m Davis McFarlan Reserve, Sorrento $7.7m Somerville Recreaction Community Centre $7.6m Peninsula Community Centre, Mornington $7.4m Municipal office, Hastings $7.3m Rye foreshore $7.2m Rowley Reserve, Rye $7.1m Rosebud central shops, Wannaeue Place $6.7m Hastings Leisure Centre, Frankston-Flinders Rd $6.6m Briars Historic Park, Mt Martha $6.5m Alexandra Park, Mornington $6.3m

view to 20 assets. Shire officers said they would have no difficulty releasing a further 30 within 30 days. Cr Pittock was supported by Hugh Fraser, Bev Colomb and the mayor, Lynn Bowden. Absent from the chamber was Cr Tim Rodgers, whose mother had died, and David Gibb. In a sometimes bizarre debate that, in the words of Cr Martin, was going in circles, councillors often appeared not to know what they were voting for while arguing on one side for transparency and the public’s right to know,

and on the other berating the fact that the debate had been initiated by “a reporter”. Cr Pittock gave examples of blocks of land that had “disappeared” off the shire register, and asked his colleagues if they knew that properties such as the Safety Beach foreshore were council owned. Civic Reserve, like many of the assets named, is unlikely to be put on the market and is in a real sense more a liability than an asset as it must be maintained and kept up to date.

Port plans on track Continued from Page 1

Mr Lean said he had spoken to four “large dredging companies who are all aware of the environment”, including Western Port being a Ramsar-listed wetland, which commits Australia to maintain its ecological character. “Geographically, we have no other options,” Mr Lean said, adding that the state would have a “crippled economy if we don’t have a gateway to the world”. He said there would be “compromises and trade-offs throughout the project”. Mr Lean said he understood the importance of mangroves but “sensed a bit of angst in the room”. “I’m telling you the truth; we don’t know what this project will look like. There’s nothing cast in stone yet and we’re doing studies to come up with a solution.” Mr Lean showed graphs to demonstrate how the Port of Melbourne was reaching its capacity and said Port Phillip could not be navigated by ships carrying 18,000 containers. These megavessels were not yet coming Australia “but it won’t be long before they do”. He predicted Hastings would be handling up to three million containers a year by 2035, rising to nine million by 2070-2080. The number of containers coming to and from the port would require Western Port Highway to be widened to six lanes with a railway line to Dandenong along the centre median strip. A tunnel was vital for containers to travel east-west across Melbourne. Mr Lean described a computer-driven port, with containers being loaded

onto trucks and trains for transport to inland ports, such as the one planned at Lyndhurst. A “very high degree of automation” would reduce the amount of light and noise usually associated with port operations. “You only need white light for the safety of humans and the best ports are 80 per cent automated.” He saw the British container port at Felixstowe as an example of a modern port being located near environmentally sensitive wetlands. The business case being made by his authority did not include exporting brown coal in bulk from Hastings, but there would be no problem if it was carried in containers. Mr Lean said the scientific investigations “need to be tempered by experience and local knowledge”. He said environmental values would be quantified – such as penguins and seals at Phillip Island. Mr Lean recommended members of the catchment committee join the three community groups being established as part of its PORTicipate network. However, in a follow-up email, one attendee described the briefing as: “Clearly the plan is predicated on a business as usual scenario, reliant on a doubling of the state’s population and a quadrupling of trade by mid-century and of course abundant fossil fuels to power the juggernaut.”

Bikes galore heading to foreshore HASTINGS is set for a one-day population explosion on Saturday when an expected 1600 bicycle riders plus cancer survivors, supporters, donors and sponsors stay overnight as part of the Ride to Conquer Cancer in aid of Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. About 5000 people will camp on the foreshore overnight. Cyclists will ride from Melbourne to Hastings on Saturday and return to the city on Sunday, a distance of about 200 kilometres. Western Port Chamber of Commerce is encouraging traders to stay open on Saturday afternoon and Sunday to serve the arrivals. The chamber is running a bus on Saturday afternoon from Hastings Information Centre to Western Port Oberon Association’s Victorian Maritime Centre in Crib Point for tours of the centre and viewing of HMAS Otama, the submarine moored off the Crib Point jetty. The 57-seat bus has been donated by Cranbourne Bus Lines and will depart at 2, 3 and 4pm. To book for the tour, call Western Port Visitor Centre on 5979 7029. The tour costs $5 and is open to everyone including locals.  HMAS Cerberus is holding an open day on Sunday 27 October.

Peninsula MPs ‘safe’ in new boundaries

Licence to spend By Chris Brennan THE state government is cashed up and ready to splash out to help improve angling opportunities for recreational fishers. Mornington Peninsula anglers are being asked to submit ideas on how to best spend revenue generated by the sale of recreational fishing licences, with grants of up to $100,000 available for projects that will improve fishing opportunities. Minister for Agriculture and Food Security Peter Walsh said the government wanted to help angling groups and local government agencies provide better fishing opportunities through the 2013-14 Recreational Fishing Grants Program. “Recreational fishing is extremely popular and contributes significantly to the economic development of regional Victoria,” Mr Walsh said. “Fishing is also a great way to spend time with family and friends in the great outdoors and helps people to stay active and connected to their communities.” Applications for grants can be lodged from this month under the categories of fisheries sustainability and habitat improvement; fishing access and facilities; fisheries-related education, information and training; and recreational fisheries research. Grants are open to fishing clubs, community groups, incorporated bodies, registered companies and government and statutory bodies. Smaller grants of up to $5000 are available all year. Recreational Fishing Grants working group member Matthew Harrington, a former president of Southern Peninsula Angling Club, said past projects included improved access, fishing platforms, family fishing days and the installation of artificial reefs in Port Phillip. “There are many possibilities and we want recreational fishermen to bring those idea to the table,” he said. “The revenue comes from our fishing licences so it’s important that the grants go back to benefit the recreational anglers who have paid for the licences. In the past there has been a lot of

research grants, a lot of fishing platforms, and cleaning tables, but all recreational fishers would like better access, from the freshwater at Devilbend Reserve to the saltwater of Port Phillip and the surf beaches. “Better access comes in many forms; it could be a walking path, a car park, an extra lane on a boat ramp. “Fishers might want fishing tables, or cleaning tables; they may want a platform, stairs or overhead protection such as a gazebo.” Large grant submissions must be received by 28 February.

By Mike Hast THE Mornington Peninsula’s three sitting state Liberal MPs will see little change in their margins following the release last Thursday of new electoral boundaries. The boundaries will be used at the state election in November next year. The trios’ former Liberal Party colleague Geoff Shaw has not been so lucky in his seat of Frankston, with his margin being slashed from 2.1 per cent to 0.4 per cent with the addition of voters from Frankston North, formerly in the Cranbourne electorate, which is held by Labor’s Jude Perera. Mr Perera’s electorate shrinks substantially, losing Carrum Downs and Sandhurst to Carrum (Donna Bauer, Liberal) and Langwarrin to Hastings. His margin drops from 1.8 to 1.1 per cent. Nepean MP (and Education Minister) Martin Dixon’s margin drops from 14.3 to 13.7 per cent in his southern peninsula electorate. He gains Balnarring and Somers voters. Mornington MP David Morris’s margin goes up – from 16 to 16.2 per cent – after gaining Moorooduc voters from Hastings electorate. Hastings MP Neale Burgess’s margin drops from 10.8 to 9.6 per cent after “losing” voters from Balnarring, Somers, Moorooduc and Langwarrin. The margin estimates have been calculated by the ABC’s psephologist Antony Green and there is an error margin of about 0.5 per cent. In Victoria’s lower house of 88 electorates (seats), 73 retain their old name, 15 names have been deleted and 15 have new names. Four electorates have been abolished. Based on 2010 election results, the Liberals could gain four seats, taking one from their Coa-

lition partners the National Party and three from the ALP. More than one million voters will change electorates. It is the first redistribution since 2001 and has been made due to population changes. Each of the 88 seats are designed to represent about 41,000 voters with voting laws requiring electorates to be within plus or minus 10 per cent of that figure. More on the redistribution including maps can be found at the Electoral Boundaries Commission website, www.ebc.vic.gov.au

Balnarring Beach plan for comment A DRAFT management plan for Balnarring Beach foreshore and parks reserve has been released for public comment. It has been created by the precinct’s committee of management and the Department of Environment and Primary Industries. Committee chair Belinda Williams said the group would “continue to manage the reserve as a natural bushland with camping allowed at strategic locations�. “The committee will investigate options to improve facilities and services in the camp grounds during the life of the plan, including the replacement of amenities blocks,� she said. It was proposed to “make the area along Merricks Creek east of the yacht club an example of local indigenous vegetation by building on the remnant vegetation cover�. Weed management and erosion control were the main issues in this area. She said trees like manna gums and

coastal banksias would need to be planted so koalas and other indigenous wildlife can survive. A hooded plover conservation program would be developed that included a public awareness campaign, signs and restricted access to breeding spots. Ms Williams said other issues raised by the public would be included in the plan. All work would be depend on the resources made available to the committee, she said Comments must be submitted in writing by 22 November and personal details will be kept private.

I READ with amusement local real estate agent Chris Watts’s call for balanced political perspective (“No port plans for Crib Point�, Letters, The News, 15/10/13). Perhaps he feels that the local populace should not receive any information about Port of Hastings expansion that is not in a press release approved by the government? Crib Point is safe – for now, thanks to public pressure, although I am quite sure residents know that if port expansion goes ahead, this valuable, deep-water jetty will be back on the menu. But then, who are we to doubt? We all know that governments always keep their promises. S Ker, Pearcedale

Western Port needs to be protected IN May, Premier Denis Napthine, commenting about the proposed Hastings container port development, dismissed the Port Phillip “Bay West� option as “requiring a massive amount of dredging and even then it would be unlikely to accommodate the large container ships of the future�. I found these comments quite curious as they intimate that no dredging will be required to make Hastings a better alternative. Perhaps Dr Napthine could join me and spend some time fishing Western Port, something I have done man and boy for more than 50 years. Both as a fisherman and a former exporter, I have absorbed a thing or two about how large shipping needs maximum space to manoeuvre. The Port Phillip channel deepening project (2008-09) dredged channels to a depth of 14 metres. Aside from the main channel leading up to Hastings, dredged to 14.3 metres, there is only one other part of Western Port that could accommodate ships, an area off Cowes about five by two nautical miles. On any given day in Port Phillip, there are many ships waiting to berth. Granted not all are container ships, nor are they 80,000-tonne monsters Port Phillip was dredged to accommodate. However, given the projected growth in container traffic, logic would suggest that at least two and possibly three of Dr Napthine’s “large container ships of the future� would

be required to await berthing in Western Port. Given the severely restricted natural depth room off Cowes and the fact these monoliths can’t wait in Bass Strait to berth, least not in the middle of a July gale, it begs the question of just how many can safely fit within the existing shipping anchorage? Dr Napthine needs to be pressed about whether Western Port will need dredging to accommodate these huge ships. Western Port marine chart clearly show the limited area available for holding these vessels and the impact on two key parts of the coastline if dredging was to take place. As is common knowledge in this area, tides in Western Port can reach speeds of up to five or six knots. Dredge Middle Bank on the western side of French Island and an outgoing spring tide will hit Cowes and Ventnor with even more velocity. All those million dollar homes at Ventnor would have more than their existing “cliff top views� in very short order. Dredge Tortoise Head Bank on the south side and retirees at Coronet Bay would be the ones with the problem. I don’t know enough about the impact of dredging on the huge sandbanks between the shipping channel and the million dollar homes around Balnarring, Shoreham and Somers, but given the east to west direction of an outgoing tide, it would be a brave soul to claim no impact. Dr Napthine also needs to tell us how Western Port’s three marine parks will be protected, how his government will meet its obligations under the Ramsar Convention, and if an expanded Port of Hastings will adversely impact on the famous penguin and seal colonies of Western Port. Western Port is home to at least three yacht clubs that use the shipping anchorage area for summer and winter racing. Recreational fishing is a major activity, with snapper and whiting fishing being major activities and money spinners for communities such as Cowes, San Remo, Tooradin, Warneet and Hastings itself. Much of the above also applies to the Bay West option in Port Phillip but the major difference is that Port Phillip does not have the “coastline killer� tides of Western Port and there would be a lesser Kevin N Chambers, The Gurdies Send letters to the editor to The News, PO Box 588, Hastings 3915 or email: team@mpnews.com.au

Alf Tallon – from shearer to real estate agent By Peter McCullough HASTINGS identity Alf Tallon died on Tuesday 15 October after a long battle with cancer. His loss will be felt by a wide range of friends and community organisations. Alfred Dominic Tallon was born in Carlton on 15 September 1937, the son of a cobbler. He left school at an early age and went up north where he became a member of a shearing gang. This resolved a dispute with his father who wanted him to become a priest. His early experience in Queensland engendered a love of the Outback that never left him. It led to a lifelong interest in hunting and, more particularly, fishing. Trips around Australia were never complete unless there was the opportunity for a spot of fishing; if it was the Murray River, all the better. After a few years in the bush, starting as an assistant cook and then as a shearer, Mr Tallon returned to Victoria and found a job as a cutter and designer with Toronto Ladies Wear. He met and married Susan Alexander and the couple moved to Warragul where he managed a dairy farm. When working on the farm, he rolled a tractor and broke his back, which put an end to farming. For a time he worked at a milk-testing plant in Warragul and then one of his friends said to him: “You have the gift of the gab, Alf. Why don’t you try real estate?” He approached John Crowder and Sons and at age 30 started selling real estate in Dromana. By this time he and Susan had two sons: Ben, born in in 1965, and Toby, born in 1967. During the Dromana years, his marriage to Susan ended.

Mr Tallon moved with the company to Hastings and, in the mid-1970s, started his own business, A D Tallon Pty Ltd. He later sold his business to John Crowder and Sons but continued to manage it along with the new Somerville branch. On an overseas holiday in 1984, Mr Tallon met Susan Rolida. The couple married and a third son, Dominic, arrived several years later. Mr Tallon returned to Hastings and set up a second real estate business, initially with Michael Cole. In April 1985, Alfred Tallon Real Estate was established, a business he operated for the rest of his life. The business will continue to run under the management of his youngest son, Dom. Interest in real estate runs strongly in the Tallon family as eldest son Ben, who was trained by his father, also has a real estate agency in Hastings. Toby Tallon followed a different path and works in the fields of information technology and telecommunications. Mr Tallon was a Justice of the Peace for about 35 years and for much of this time was a bail justice until he reached the age of compulsory retirement at 70. He served as a magistrate in the children’s court when it was held in Hastings. For more than 30 years he was a member of the Western Port Chamber of Commerce, serving on the executive on a number of occasions. In 2003 he joined the committee of the Western Port Oberon Association and was a vice-president. When Western Port Tourism was reformed last year, Mr Tallon was treasurer. He was a board member of the Hastings branch of the Bendigo Bank shortly after its establishment in 2008.

Fun turns to fear with strangers at the gate By Stephen Taylor “GOD they’re angry,’’ I thought. “They’re out to get us.’’ It was a shock to realise I had put myself in a position where I feared a beating or worse, just for helping out at a friend’s 16th birthday party. But now, with a taunting gang apparently determined to kick down the front gate and assault us, there wasn’t much I could do about it. The host’s father, another dad and I were shocked by the abuse, threats and physical intimidation as we fought grimly to hold the front gate shut. Wave after wave of assaults proved wearying and frightening: they’d rush the gate, force it open with kicks and brute strength and threaten to storm back in, while our undermanned force fought valiantly to hold the line without doing anything to further inflame a tense situation. It felt as though we were walking on eggshells, hoping they wouldn’t break. One swore at me, adding “You’re gonna die”. “I’ve been in jail and I’m gonna stab you,’’ joined in another. “Come out here and fight; you’re gutless.’’ These big, tough 16 to 18-year-olds were high on something, angry as hell and bent on violence. We three dads were their targets. They didn’t just want to get back into the party, they wanted to bash us. The smallest and most dangerous was a foul-mouthed girl. She made several attempts to scale the gate, which prompted the others to try

rushing through. That poor gate proved to be our saviour. It was shaken and rocked, then kicked open, which broke the latch, while three dads cowering behind it were praying for the police to arrive. Gatecrashing is nothing new – I’ve probably been a gatecrasher myself – but it’s always a shock to find people you don’t know and would never invite to your party acting like they own the place, bent on causing damage and starting fights. The young host and friends had been having a great time in the suitably dim and crowded backyard. Professional dance music and strobe lighting set the scene and young bodies swayed to the beat. The atmosphere was charged. This was to

escorting the culprits to the gate one by one in a firm, no-nonsense manner. This was early days; we were in control – or so we thought. “Get your hands off me,’’ I was told more than once as I marched my quota up the driveway to the street where the ever-growing gang gathered. “Have we called the police?’’ I whispered to the host, who had registered the party the week before. “Yes, they’re on the way.” Being Saturday night they had plenty on their hands and it would be at least a 30-minute wait. Time enough for the effects of alcohol and drugs to kick in and the battle to begin at the front gate. The three dads felt very much alone.

be a great night. The girls in their colourful minis and high heels seemed oblivious to the chilly night air, while the boys gathered, cool and coiffed, avoiding direct visual contact but eyeing them off just the same. The flash of phone cameras showed everyone wanted to remember the night. But the insidious force began to make its presence felt. Jumping unseen over a side fence, the troublemakers nudged guests aside, making threats, taking the middle ground. The fun started to evaporate. “Dad, there’s gatecrashers here. Help me get them out,’’ the young host called out. He’d been punched. We ran to backyard “party central” and, as he pointed them out, began

IF having a party at home:  Register the party with your local police at least one week in advance.  Insist that the party is invitation only to reduce the risk of gatecrashers. Ask your guests not to spread the word to others via texts or the internet.  Indicate clearly on the invitation whether the party is alcohol-free or if alcohol is provided or is BYO. State firmly that illegal drugs are not welcome.  Ask parents of party guests to call beforehand for more information.  Ask parents of guests to provide transport to and from the party.  Secure all valuables.  Have responsible adults on hand to monitor the party.  Make sure the host (and the host’s parents and other responsible adults) remain sober so any problems can be dealt with quickly and safely.  Consider hiring a security guard or guards.  Serve plenty of food.  Be vigilant if you have a swimming pool – intoxicated guests could fall in.  Turn the music down after midnight.  Have a plan of action if a guest becomes drunk or ill.  Ask gatecrashers to leave immediately or threaten that the police will be called.  Call the police if you think a situation is beyond your control.

AROUND THE REGION

Beach closed: Landslides and waves have taken their toll of structures along what is left of the beach at Mt Martha north. Pictures: Keith Platt

Beach closed after steps collapse By Keith Platt THERE appears to be no stopping cliffs at Mt Martha being eroded from the top and bottom. Waves constantly eat at the base of the cliffs, while cracks in the soil further up are usually followed by land slips. The latest movement has wrecked wooden stairs built from the Esplanade to Mt Martha Beach North, near Alice St. The $118,000 cost of the stairway was shared between Mornington Pen-

insula Shire and the Department of Environment and Primary Industries. No decision has been made on the future of the stairway. The waves tore concrete steps away from the base of the cliff while a landslip left a yawning gap in the steps. The top of the stairs has been boarded up by Mornington Peninsula Shire, effectively closing off access to the beach for about one kilometre between the car park near the mouth of Balcombe Creek and Craigie Rd. Repairs are planned to the seawall at the Craigie Rd beach.

The latest failure follows the loss of two other stairways wrecked by the same combination of battering by waves and landslides. The beach along that section of coast has all but disappeared, with the only access being through thick bush growing behind the boat sheds. The beach was “renourished” in May 2010, but surveys commissioned by DEPI show that much of the sand trucked from Mt Martha Beach South was lost within two months. A net loss of sand has been recorded since, with some of it coming back

naturally over summer. A beach box near the Alice St stairway also hit by the latest storms was ordered removed by the shire. In response to questions from The News, the shire said its officers had inspected all beach boxes at Mt Martha Beach North and was “working closely with licensees and Department of Environment and Primary Industries officers to ensure a coordinated response in relation to appropriate standards and the regulatory framework”. The shire said the Alice St stairs were designed by a consultant “based

on survey and a geotechnical report”. “There have been a number of reports previously undertaken in the Mt Martha north area, and further reports will be undertaken as part of a broad monitoring program. “This is coastal crown land, and the shire will work with DEPI to support efforts in addressing the ongoing land stability issues. “The stabilising behind the bathing boxes at Mt Martha North was undertaken by DEPI.”

Mamils cross for a good cause CYCLING is a huge recreation sport but true twowheel stalwarts are the ones who have cycled around Port Phillip, a gruelling 250 kilometres, on what was known as Around the Bay in a Day when it started 21 years ago. On the weekend, the event – now called Around the Bay: Fundraise for The Smith Family, and regarded as one of Melbourne’s major sporting events – again attracted thousands of mamils (middle-aged men in lycra) as well as women and those not in their middle years. A key element of the ride is the respite gained when riders cross between Sorrento and

Queenscliff (or vice versa) aboard Searoad ferries’ MV Queenscliff, MV Sorrento and MV Peninsula Princess, the original ferry that started in 1987. About 2700 riders took part in 1993, with another 1000 knocked back due to lack of ferry capacity. Last year more than 17,000 riders entered. A similar figure was expected on Sunday but strong northerlies may have put off some entrants. The wind abated in the afternoon, making the journey back to Melbourne easier. Top, riders head up Point Nepean Rd in Dromana. Above, riders come off a ferry at Sorrento on Sunday before riding on the peninsula. Pictures: Yanni

High fives for bestselling children’s author By Chris Brennan BESTSELLING children’s author Julie Davey of McCrae has created a mobile phone application that is being hailed by parents and educators as a “breakthrough tool” in helping guide young people through early life challenges. The FabFirst5 app is an interactive program that provides children with step-by-step coaching on how to “shift their focus from problems to possibilities, and frame their day more positively,” Ms Davey said. Released last week, the app teaches children aged 5-12 “emotional reframing techniques” and encourages them to adopt a more positive outlook and build betting coping mechanisms. Ms Davey is well known on the peninsula for her numerous schools visits and workshops as well as attending Mornington and Red Hill markets to promote her acclaimed children’s psychology book A for Attitude, which has sold more than 40,000 copies. She’s is a member of Rosebud-Rye Rotary Club’s youth committee and has received backing from the organisation for her “positive attitude” education crusade. Ms Davey said the app would enable her to spread her work to a wider audience, helping teach children, teachers and parents around the world the importance of resolving anxiety and building resilience in young people. She said the app’s title referred to the premise that “everyone can achieve positive possibilities from a positive outlook in the first five minutes of their day”. “For children to thrive, it helps if they can release worries, giving them the head space to consider other possibilities and solutions,” she said. “I believe this app helps kids and parents become more responsible, resilient and conscious of opportunities available to them. “Many kids feel more comfortable communicating through the screen and the app is an ideal tool to enhance the teaching and counselling of

experienced staff and parents as they reach out to kids and work through issues together.” She said one of the app’s most popular features was the “PossibiliTree”, a visual tool that encourages users to “turn worries into wishes and problems into PossibiliTrees”. “By inviting the young user to record their personal challenges onto leaves of the PossilbiliTree, the program demonstrates examples of how to manage problems and work through steps to consider more positive outcomes.” Ms Davey’s skill at simplifying adult concepts and using colourful illustrations and graphics to deliver simple, easy-to-follow positive thinking techniques for young minds has seen her popularity grow across the world. She started working life as a nurse, witnessing the power of positive attitude and how it affected both physical and mental health. She saw the need to teach young people techniques to build self-worth. This led to her writing and illustrating A for Attitude, which was self-published in 1998 and is distributed in 14 countries. She still finds time to engage with young people in her own area and recently visited Boneo, Rosebud, Rye and Tootgarook primary schools. Rosebud primary teacher Heidi Kerr has been trialling the FabFirst5 app in her classroom for the past few weeks. She said the program had already had a positive impact on pupils. “The program is very good for my students. We have been putting our worries away in the morning by posting them on our PossibiliTree,” she said. “The kids have responded in a very positive way and remind me when we haven’t ‘done our tree’ in the morning. “I have some pupils who come from very sad family lives and they are finding the tree a good way to focus on the positives in their lives and have a good day at school.”

Western Port News 22 October 2013


Founder ‘devastated’ by fuel trucks furore By Mike Hast THE founder of Cootes Transport says he is “devastated” by the furore surrounding his former company. Ian Cootes, 71, started with one fuel tanker in Frankston in 1965 and built up the business to be one of Australia’s leading tanker firms with about 800 employees before selling out 13 years ago to ION Ltd and resigning from its board 10 years ago. “First and foremost, my condolences go to the families of the two people killed in Sydney,” he told The News from his home in an inner Melbourne bayside suburb. He was also sad for employees of the company “who have worked diligently for many years”. Mr Cootes would not be drawn into criticising the company that now owns Cootes, the Queensland-based McAleese Group, which bought it from CHAMP Private Equity about 18 months ago. Dozens of Cootes-branded trucks have been taken off the road after inspections in Victoria and NSW found defects in much of the fleet. The inspections came after a Cootes tanker exploded in a northern Sydney suburb on 1 October, killing two people and injuring five. Cootes tankers being put off the road saw many service stations run out of unleaded petrol, diesel and gas when people panicked and bought extra supplies. Most trucks had been fixed and returned to work last week. The fuel “drought” raised questions about the security of supplies, especially in big cities like Melbourne,

Devastated: Cootes Transport founder Ian Cootes, who sold his former Seaford-based fuel and gas trucking company in 2000.

Sydney and Adelaide as many servos typically have just three days’ supply. The Ian Cootes story is a classic one of building up a company by hard work, safety and engineering innovations, new technology, looking after employees, and being in the right place at the right time. In 1965, Mr Cootes would drive

his tanker to collect fuel in Port Melbourne (and later from a Dandenong depot supplied by BP’s refinery at Crib Point) and deliver it to about 24 servos between Seaford and Sorrento as well as on the Western Port side of the Mornington Peninsula. His truck carried the BP colours but he owned it. He’d do three loads a day

and later employed a night driver. In 1974 Mr Cootes won a contract to deliver heating oil for BP so bought more road tankers and built a depot in McCulloch Ave, Seaford, later moving to another site nearby. Ian Cootes was known as a stickler for keeping his fleet well maintained. A Frankston man told The News he and his father were contracted to lay bathroom-type tiles in a below-ground service bay where mechanics worked on the underside of Cootes vehicles. “We’d never seen anything like it; the place was as clean as a Formula 1 pit area.” When Cootes was sold to ION in late 2000 for cash and shares, it had 106 LPG tankers, 250 prime movers and 160 fuel trailers as well as trailers for carting chemicals and bitumen. Cootes had 70 per cent of the fuel tanker market and an enviable record of 17.5 per cent compound revenue growth for the previous decade. Mr Cootes joined ION’s board, staying for three years before retiring in October 2004 and selling shares that had been part of the sale. In April 2002 it was reported under the headline “Tanker driver cashes in $5.4m worth of ION” that Mr Cootes had decided it was time to take a few profits from his shares. It proved to be a prescient move. But the ION shares he retained lost value when the company had technical problems building its alloy casting business. This was the beginning of the end as ION went into administration in 2004, another victim of the decline of Australian manufacturing.

The firm also had a vehicle transmission plant in Albury and a plant in Auckland making wheels for Ford. Mr Cootes said the company had a 50-year partnership with BP and a 35year partnership with Shell and the gas industry. In 2003, Mr Cootes was inducted into the “Shell Rimula Wall of Fame”. He was praised for introducing electronic delivery information; establishing an LPG terminal, a propylene plant, and a jet and aviation refuelling facilities at Melbourne Airport. “Ian has developed and introduced many world-class initiatives to the transport of dangerous goods, liquids and gases,” the citation stated. “Tanker construction developments have been designed and built in-house within the engineering division. “Ian has created employment conditions that have attracted a very loyal team of drivers, workshop and operations staff. “The top 60 longest-serving employees have more than 1000 years of service with Cootes.” Mr Cootes has been a member of the Australian Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association, the Australian Road Research Board, and the National Bulk Tanker Association. He was chairman of The Alfred hospital’s foundation for six years and is now deputy chairman. He supports many charities including the Variety Club. A former Cootes driver posted a comment on a Melbourne radio station’s website during the furore: “I bet these trucks would never [have] had these faults if Ian still had control of the company.”

Students battle graffiti scourge By Chris Brennan A GROUP of Balcombe Grammar School students is ready to take up the fight against graffiti after completing a training program. They identified strategies to reduce the cost and social impact of illegal “street art”. Six students took part in the Mindshop Excellence Program and were asked to provide recommendations on how to combat graffiti on the Mornington Peninsula. The five-day program, held earlier this month, was co-hosted by asset maintenance company Transfield Services and Mornington Peninsula Shire. The students assessed community attitudes toward graffiti and its root causes, conducting interviews with peninsula schools, police and residents. They came up with measures and suggestions for the most environmentally sensitive and cost-efficient means of removing graffiti and discouraging further attacks. Recommendations included reducing the visibility of graffiti by planting tree and shrub barriers at popular tagging locations, providing schoolbased education programs, and utilising a new, cost-effective graffiti removal product that is environmentally safe and quick and easy to use. Student Joel Blake said the group had gained invaluable experience during the process. “The Mindshop program was a fantastic opportunity for us to break away from the school environment and gain some real-life work experience in a local industry,” he said. “It’s great

to know the suggestions we came up might have a positive impact on our community.” Transfield, which provides graffitiremoval services and has a 15-year relationship with the shire, is reviewing the recommendations. “The task challenged the students to think outside the box as well as work in a team efficiently and productively,” Transfield’s shire maintenance con-

tract manager Karen Miller said. “It is great to get the students to come up with ideas that we sometimes don’t think of ourselves, which we can then implement in our business.” The shire’s maintenance services acting team leader Graham Riley congratulated the students on their “great work”. He said their ideas would be investigated by the council.

He said the project was valuable as it “provided an opportunity for gathering the perspectives of young people on the issue of graffiti and its removal”. The shire has a range of anti-graffiti programs and provides free graffiti removal kits and discount vouchers to residents to assist in removing graffiti attacks on private property. Instances of graffiti can be reported to the shire on 1300 850 600.

Farm deaths put focus on safety MORNINGTON Peninsula farmers have been warned to pay close attention to safety issues over the busy harvest season, especially when using machinery. WorkSafe’s Lisa Sturzenegger said three recent farm deaths in Victoria demonstrated the high-risk nature of farming. “As the warmer months are fast approaching, the hay season is about to get under way and farmers are getting busier and preparing for the season ahead,” Ms Sturzenegger said. “But we know from past experience that it only takes a moment for a rushed decision to turn into a tragic one. We want everyone to put safety at the front of their mind, reassess their systems of work and, if there’s a safety risk, make changes.” The message to peninsula farmers was a simple one, she said: “Don’t take shortcuts with safety.” “Nobody – workers, family, friends or the wider community – should have to suffer the trauma of a workplace fatality. Tell your loved ones where you’ll be if you’re working alone, carry a phone, ensure vehicles are properly maintained and wear appropriate safety gear for the task at hand.” This week during Work Safe Week, more than 100 seminars are being held offering advice on safety issues.

THE Peninsula Health and Wellbeing Expo this weekend will feature more than 60 exhibitors offering advice and guidance on a wide range of products and services to help attendees discover more fulfilling and healthy lifestyles.

Ms Schutt said the one-day expo would provide a touch, tell, taste, and try experience as well as help visitors discover the depth and range of health and wellbeing services on the peninsula. The health and wellbeing expo is from 10am-4pm on Sunday 27 October at Mornington Racecourse, Racecourse Rd. Entry is free.

THE annual Mates Day on the Bay looked like being a tough one for fishos on Sunday with strong northerlies making for choppy seas but many participants brought home nice fish for supper. Mates Day, started in 1999 by Futurefish Foundation, gives people with a disability the chance to get out on the water and snap up a feed as well as enjoy the outdoors afloat. Lynette Hogan, who manages Launching Way

at Patterson River with her husband Trevor, said more than 200 people with disabilities and their carers attended. Sixty-three boats and their skippers and deckhands ventured onto the water. Lunch for all: At the boat ramp on Sunday was Ben Reekie of Mornington (right), who caught one of the biggest snappers of the day. His mates – deckhand Jim, Ben and boat skipper Garry – were suitably impressed. Picture: Gary Sissons

THE sophisticated design of this near-new brick-veneer home is hard to beat. Set on a 798-square metre block in a new subdivision full of quality homes, the versatile home has a clever floor plan incorporating three living zones that allow new owners to adjust the living space to their own requirements rather than yield to convention. Living areas at the front and back are a great example of this freedom to choose. A room at the front would be great for a formal lounge or rumpus room and the same options apply to a second area that leads to an undercover entertaining area at the rear.

An adjoining dining and casual living zone overlooks low-maintenance gardens landscaped with yucca plants.

Carrington Park Club Poison only way for foxes, moves to Eagle Ridge says vermin catcher By Mike Hast IT’S the end of an era in Rosebud this week when Carrington Park Club leaves its headquarters of almost 50 years and moves to Eagle Ridge golf course in Rye. A developer bought Carrington Park’s clubhouse and its 10 blocks of land in Elizabeth Drive opposite Rosebud Park public golf course in March for about $3 million, saving the club from financial ruin. The News understands the developer will build seven or eight houses on the land, which is high up on the Arthurs Seat escarpment overlooking the southern peninsula, Port Phillip, Bass Strait and even the towers of Melbourne on a clear day – a million dollar view. Carrington Park Club has been under financial pressure for some time, facing rising costs including maintaining its old clubhouse, once the private residence of the Moran family of Moran and Cato grocery chain fame. It was later bought by Pat McLaren, who owned a large tract of land in the area and sold the house and land to the club. Members were confronted with a tough decision about 15 months ago – sell up or face oblivion. Recently elected president Wayne Harvey said “a majority of members voted to realise our assets”, agreeing to sell

the 80-year-old clubhouse, the old lawn bowls pavilion and surrounding land, which included two bowling greens abandoned last year when the bowls section of the club was closed to save costs. Carrington Park Club selling up and moving out of Rosebud has dismayed and angered many long-time members including life members. Emotions ran high at several meetings when the sale was being considered. One group of members will not move and has formed the nucleus of a new golf club based at Rosebud Park public golf course opposite Carrington Park Club. Carrington Park was once “the place to be” – a hive of sporting and social activity in the 1970s and 1980s. Football club sportsmen’s nights were a highlight. It had hundreds of members playing golf at Rosebud Park (or Rosebud public as it’s known) and bowls on the greens that back onto Arthurs Seat State Park. There was a pigeon racing section, thriving darts and billiards competitions, and other activities. Carrington Park Club golfers used Rosebud public. Casual golfers were able to use Carrington Park’s facilities, celebrating a good game or commiserating a shocking round. The course became so popular that a breakaway group formed and

founded Rosebud Country Club off Boneo Rd. About 30 to 40 of around 130 members will form the new golf club at Rosebud Park public golf course, which is on Crown land managed by a committee on behalf of the state government’s Department of Environment and Primary Industries. An existing meeting room next to the pro shop will be refurbished and converted into clubrooms, hopefully with a liquor licence. The breakaway group will form the nucleus of what Nick Sayle, Rosebud public’s manager, hopes will become a club with hundreds of members. Membership costs $419, one of the lowest on the peninsula. Casual golfers pay $35 for 18 holes. Members will pay $8.50 for 18 holes. Membership details: 5986 1813, 5981 2833 (pro shop) or email: rosebudpark@ bigpond.com “This is the best public golf course in Victoria,” he said. Carrington Park Club’s last hurrah is on Friday night. Then most members will load their golf clubs into the boot and head for Eagle Ridge. Rivalry between Rosebud public’s members and Eagle Ridge’s new members will have a certain edge when it comes time to play competition golf.

By Keith Platt WILD dog hunter Leigh Swan believes poison is the only solution to combating foxes on the Mornington Peninsula. “With trapping you only get 2.9 per cent; with baiting you get 78.5 per cent,” Mr Swan said. A Rosebud-based professional vermin exterminator, Mr Swan is not surprised by Mornington Peninsula Shire’s refusal to supply cages for residents to trap foxes on Tootgarook foreshore (“Volunteers ready for fox hunt”, The News, 8/10/13). Tootgarook resident David Stanton said the shire had rejected his offer to get rid of foxes on the foreshore. Instead, he has asked the state government to buy three large cages “and loan them to me for use in the Tootgarook area”. “The situation at this stage is that it’s too hard and so nothing can be done to remove the foxes, other than private individuals engaging contractors to eradicate the foxes at their own expense,” Mr Stanton said. “My neighbours and I are prepared to offer our labour free of charge and that the cost of the cages and bait used is a small cost under the circumstances.” Mr Stanton said a shire officer had given him a list of commercial feral animal controllers and told him it was “the responsibility of the landowner to control feral animals”. Leigh Swan said: “I think we have been through this before; the shire is so negative on their fox control. “I had a meeting with some of their conservation officers and they made it quite clear to me to keep my nose out of their

business as they admitted they were antibaiting.” Mr Swan said he recently baited foxes at Mornington racecourse even though it was an area used to walk dogs. “Problem easily solved – we just closed the course down for one month with letters and signs, and we got six foxes and, guess what, no dogs died.” Mr Swan said he thought the shire could temporarily close reserves to poison foxes. “I have caught lots of foxes in my big cages for residents who have foxes living under their houses. “Everywhere I go around the state, people ask me where I live and the first thing they say is ‘old fox city’. “That is what [the peninsula] is known for – our foxes. “I put that down to the negativity of the shire. “I feel for a lot of people down here with [fox] problems and this is why I work everywhere else. “People unfortunately think this work is for charity and that’s one thing the shire does not tell people. “They would die if they found out how much money is wasted on trapping.”

Church locked in power struggle By Chris Brennan IT took the Lord just six days to create the world. Then he got a day off. Bayview Community Church’s treasurer Graham Emmett has been battling for more than nine months just to get the power connected – and he’s yet to see the light. Now he’s starting to lose his faith and his patience. “I’ve certainly lost faith in Origin over this. Nine months and we’re still waiting,” Mr Emmett said. “You wouldn’t believe it could take anyone this long – it should be a matter of days to get the electricity connected, not months.” The church is now months behind schedule and thousands of dollars out of pocket for building works to create a new church in Rosebud. Origin and Mornington Peninsula electricity distributor United Energy said the delay had been caused by a series of mishaps that included the wrong address being provided and the theft of copper cables connecting the property. Power was due to be connected within days. The $4 million project began in 2009 when the Tootgarook and Red Hill Churches of Christ were sold and a combined Bayview Community Church congregation was established in Rosebud. The church purchased a disused Telstra building at 248 Jetty Rd and an ABC Learning Centre building next door for a combined price of about $2 million. The learning centre building was to serve as a community centre and offices while the Telstra building was undergoing extensive renovations at a cost of about $2 million to turn it into a place of worship. The project was scheduled for completion in February this year but a series of delays, caused

not just by the lack of power, but also flooding, thefts and planning snags, have forced the church to put forward the anticipated completion date to November. In the meantime, the former ABC building is being used to hold church services. However, the single greatest stumbling block remains the unresolved electricity issue, Mr Emmett said. “It has been a huge weight on my mind,” he said. “It’s taken hours and hours of my time and dozens of phone calls, letters and emails. And then there’s the financial cost. “We’ve had to hire a generator so the builder could have access to power, and that’s cost us thousands of dollars. All told, the electricity issue has cost us more than $8000 and put us an extra three months or so behind. “We’re all very disappointed and we lay the blame firmly at the feet of Origin.” However, a spokesman for Origin said paperwork provided by the builder had contained errors and this was the primary cause for the delay. “Origin assesses new connection applications for completeness and accuracy before sending on to a local electricity distributor for next steps,” the spokesman said. “This process has been delayed due to inconsistencies in the incoming paperwork, which have taken some time to resolve on behalf of the customer. “We’ll continue working closely with the local distributor to clear up this confusion and have this property connected as quickly as possible.” A United Energy manager said the problem had been exacerbated by the theft of copper cabling from the church work site. He said this had now

been rectified and the paperwork issues resolved. “We should have the customer connected in the next 24 hours or so,” United Energy corporate affairs general manager Jai McDermott said. “We became aware of a problem with the new connection on 2 October, when the retailer contacted us following rejection of the original request on 30 August. “On investigation, we discovered that the issue stemmed from incorrect address data provided to us dating back to 2008, following an unrelated

service visit to the site. Once we identified the issue, we moved to complete the connection as quickly as possible. “Our aim is to provide our customers with safe and reliable access to electricity at all times. Any delays are regrettable, irrespective of the reason.” After nine months waiting for connection, Mr Emmett said he would believe it when he saw it. But he’s looking forward to finally being able to enjoy a well-earned day of rest.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Crib Point land to be sold, heavy storm causes trouble for Dromana Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 25 October 1913. WORD has been received locally that the Lands department intends to hold an auction shortly of several sections of the Government township at Crib Point. This, it is thought, will be the future township of the Flinders naval base. When the Commonwealth authorities were reserving land for naval purposes the township was withdrawn from settlement in case it also should be required, but some months ago the naval authorities notified the Lands department that this land would not be required for naval purposes. It was resurveyed, and about fifty blocks are to be offered for sale in response to a request from the Crib Point Progress Association that it should he thrown open for settlement. Much satisfaction is expressed locally at the news, as it will remove doubts as to further resumptions on the eastern side of the railway line, and will enable business people and others to obtain land in closer proximity to the railway station, which the town site adjoins. *** MOSTLY all fishermen with motor boats will be up at Henley this week. *** DURING the recent heavy storms the boat landing and some of the piles at Dromana were washed away, while at Sorrento the sea encroached behind the sheet piling and washed away the piling. The Public Works Department has been notified, and asked to repair the damage immediately.

*** THE Sunday train to Mornington commences tomorrow week. *** THE Mornington and Somerville punters had a good day at Caulfield on Saturday. *** MR F. O. Chamberlin, of Frankston, is at present spending a holiday in Tasmania. *** A FINE schnapper, weighing 12 lbs., was caught by Mr T. Hutchins on Saturday last at Mornington. This was the first for this season. *** THE picnic season at Frankston commenced on Friday, when several hundred students of the Continuation School arrived by special train. With the advent of the warm weather other picnics are being arranged. *** THE Mornington lady tennis players, who were to have played Frankston at Frankston on Wednesday, did not undertake the trip, owing to the wet weather. The match is being arranged for a future date. *** THE hon. sec. of the Frankston Sports Club acknowledges the following donations:- Messrs A. E. Bates and H. Masterton, £1 is each; Messrs C. V. G. Williams, G. W.Wells. D. McDonald, and E. Worrall, 10s 6d each. *** ALL business places will be closed at Mornington on Wednesday, 12th November, in connection with the school children’s trip to the Zoological Gardens. The Brass Band will play selections in Frankston (weather

permitting) on Sunday afternoon, 2nd November, when a collection will be taken up in aid of the hospitals. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason held a most successful sale of furniture and miscellaneous goods at their mart, Frankston, on Wednesday last, when

A strange fish of the flying species was caught at Stony Point this week. Its measurements were about 6 inches long, with the head and wings of an owl and the body of a scaleless fish.

their auctioneer (Mr W. P. Mason) disposed of 355 lots in the remarkably good time of 815 minutes. *** MESSRS T. R. B. Morton and Son

advertise in this issue a great subdivisional auction sale of Tyabb Park Estate on Monday, 3rd November, when 49 choice blocks, from 1 to 10 acres each, will be offered. The sale will be conducted on the estate. *** “I CANNOT find one fact in the evidence in mitigation of the sentence,” remarked Mr Justice Hodges, imposing a sentence of 18 months’ imprisonment on Richard Charles Gray, 34 years of age, in the Criminal Court on Monday. For having deserted his children, Gray was sentenced to six months’ imprisonment, and on a charge of bigamy to twelve months’ imprisonment, the sentences to be cumulative. “Even then,” said Mr Justice Hodges, “it is a light sentence.” Mr F. Tucke, who appeared on Gray’s behalf, had asked for leniency. *** THE committee of the Frankston Brass Band desire to thank the promoters and public for their efforts in connection with the bazaar held recently, in aid of their funds, which have been augmented to the extent of £87, a fact that shows how enthusiastic the response has been on behalf of the band. The following donations have also been received:- Mrs M. R. Deane, £1 Is; Mr C. Gray, £1 1s; Mr J. Grice, £1; Mr R. T. Picking, 10s 6d; Mr G. W Wells, 10s; Mr D. McDonald, 5s; Mr Fogarty, 2s 6d The band gave a concert on the 11th inst. in Bay Street, at which four new instruments, held by the band on approbation, were heard to advantage, and no doubt added to the general improvement of the band, which was favourably commented on

by a great number of the supporters of the band. *** AN accident that luckily terminated only in a jinker being smashed occurred last Saturday to Mr Ashton Woolley. While out driving, the horse shied, throwing the driver out, and smashing the jinker. Mr Wooley escaped without any injury. *** QUITE a sensation has been caused through a number of the Naval Base employees being dismissed. Rumour had it more were about to be relieved of their duties, but this has proved to be wrong. As a great number of the men are married, and have bought and made homes for themselves, their dismissal would be very keenly felt. *** THE Rev C. H. Eva, clergyman of the Church of England, paid a visit to the local Sunday School last Sunday. He expressed himself well pleased with the progress made by the scholars. The Progress Association which has been formed here is likely to prove of great value. The first general meeting was held in the load hall, where the meetings and entertainments are to be held. *** THE boisterous weather of last week played great havoc with the fruit trees round here, the whole tree, in some cases, being stripped of its blossoms. *** A STRANGE fish of the flying species was caught at Stony Point this week. Its measurements were about 6 inches long, with the head and wings like an owl, and body of a scaleless fish.

Rage against the machines By Stuart McCullough I’VE always had an uneasy relationship with technology. Having seen the film Electric Dreams at an impressionable age, I accept that computers have a sizeable dark side and are capable of evil. Giorgio Moroder’s ubiquitous soundtrack to the film served only to reinforce the point. As we continue to outsource more and more of our everyday tasks, surely the day cannot be too far away when all the laptops and smart phones of the world rise up in a brutal takeover. Indeed, I fear that preparations are well advanced. I can only hope it’s not too late. When I was a kid, there was only one electronic gadget that was worth getting excited about – the television. Then along came video recorders and it was as though the future had suddenly arrived. These devices were about the size of a Ford Festiva; they could play videotapes and, even more excitingly, allowed you to record television programs. It was empowering. Mere mortals could watch one television program whilst taping another for future use. I say this knowing that it probably sounds about as interesting as porridge to generation Y but, once upon a time, this technology represented the cutting edge. However, possessing the power to record a television show was one thing. Figuring out how to program the device so that it began recording automatically was a different matter entirely. My father never mastered the art of programming a VCR, preferring instead to try and persuade it, first by

way of a staring competition and, ultimately, through threats of violence. Today, video recorders gather dust in millions of attics and cupboards, retained only in the unlikely emergency whereby someone desperately needs to watch a videotape. It was an age of wonder – an era in which schools kept their computers

in labs. Classes involving a computer appeared in the schedule as ‘computer science’. It was like learning a different language. I paid little attention, certain that these clunky devices – whose sole purpose seemed to be to give nerds something to talk about other than Dungeons and Dragons – would never be of much relevance to me. I am prepared to now concede that

I might have been wrong. At university, a handful of students brought laptops to class. I thought they had more money than sense. I preferred a pen and paper, despite the fact that my handwriting was (and remains) almost entirely illegible. There was no doubt in my mind that in the battle between typewriter and laptop which would ultimately prevail. I typed out my essays using corrective tape to fix up any errors. It was a solid and reliable machine that served me well. But, for the life of me, I couldn’t tell you what became of it. Chances are, I kept that typewriter long after it was sensible to do so. Now computers are everywhere and we are at their mercy. Seemingly nothing in life comes without some spurious website that’s trying to flog something or other, a point I make frequently at www.stuartmccullough. com. Many of these web pages seek to force a relationship, demanding that you set up an account. Such accounts, of course, require a password. By now, I have more passwords than I have any hope of remembering, meaning that the Internet at large refuses to believe that I am who I say I am. It’s as though it owns more of my identity than I do. It’s accepted that animals can sense fear. I’ve no doubt that computers are much the same. My laptop knows that I don’t really trust it and, for that reason, has decided to mess with my mind. Last week, the email system began demanding that I supply it with a password. This is despite my not having set a password. It’s like it’s daring

me to guess the number in its head. Things only got worse from there. Anyone who has ever typed anything into a computer knows the pain that comes from having the ‘spelling’ tuned to ‘US’ rather than ‘Australia’. This goes far beyond issues of dialect. I can accept that the term ‘schmozzle’ may not be in common usage throughout the English speaking world. But I deeply resent being told that I am misspelling ‘colour’ and ‘favour’. But for all the differences they are, at least, the same language. Then, last Tuesday, I was in the middle of writing an article when I decided to use the Thesaurus. As I clicked the button, I found that it had been set to ‘French’. Sacre bleu! Often, it’s easy to select the language but, try as I might, I couldn’t see any option for switching to English – either US or Australian. Having packed up my paper Thesaurus some time ago, I had little option but to go with French, even though I would have preferred Esperanto. It was, I fear, an act of retaliation. This means war. Every time I log on, I await the next salvo as my computer continues its campaign of terror. Whether it will demand I supply it with a password that doesn’t exist or direct me to a language other than my own is anyone’s guess. Perhaps it’s time to fight back. From now on, it’s paper and pen only. Granted, that will make it harder to update the website, but so be it. I might even dig out the old VCR and watch my copy of Electric Dreams, just for old time’s sake. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Holy cow, Ian is a stayer By Haydn Godony A STALWART performer, musical journeyman and respected singer-songwriter, Ian Treloar has performed on peninsula stages for more than a couple of decades. A recent online survey, of ‘vintage’ peninsula musicians, saw him mentioned as the peninsula’s best muso. A veteran performer at Morninton’s Main Street Festival, this year he mentored his guitar students from Red Hill Consolidated School, who performed in a couple of bands, The Black Pearls and The Drake Equation, at the fest. In the early 80s, as rhythm guitar player for hallowed ska outfit The Nicest People, he saw-in New Years Eve onstage at the inaugural rock concert at Dromana Drive In theatre. Bands that followed included the ‘wild and warped’ covers outfit Play It Again Sham, slick coversband Survival and the funky reggae combo Hot Bananaz. Since around 2002 with his originals-band Holycow and folky covers duo Mojo Pearls, where he shares musical credits with festival art director Ree Liddell, have gathered a fine following wherever they play. Which has been in mostly every corner of Australia. “In the early 80s, promoters and music people ‘in the know’ had two bands pencilled-in as likely to be big. One was Men at Work and the other was Nicest People,” said Ian from his Flinders home. “Fate ran its course and they ‘made it’ and we didn’t, that’s just the way it goes.” “Holycow is pretty much my baby that I’ve pushed and pulled for the last decade. The players have come and gone but the band has held together. At first I planned to follow a similar path to Tea Party, with a raga-rock thing, but it evolved into a more funky, roots and acoustic sound,” he said. “Six years ago Ree joined the band and brought a wonderful personality with a fresh, feminine aspect. The focus became less rock n roll and more about the lyrics and the melody. The ‘floating’ lineup also includes Aaron Roberts on keyboards, Joel Plymin on sax and vari-

ous drummers. For a number of years, before he passed away in June last year, our dear mate Chris Haylock was on drums. Losing Chris was probably the biggest setback I have encountered in my life, losing such a beautiful friend,” Ian said. The quest to be a pop star ended years ago. “Now I play to a niche market, for people who like groove and roots. Festivals have become a bit more of a focus. We sell records to so many different people, from teens to 70-year-olds.” Last year, Ian’s fourth album Don’t Get the Picture was proudly released and has sold well. “The hard part is putting the energy into promoting it yourself. A lot of artists suffer that. We get the great artwork and the video done and print the cover in re-cycled paper and then collapse in a heap with the promotion. You have to be as passionate about marketing as you are about strumming guitars and writing songs.” Holycow perform regularly at Heritage in Balnarring.

Kangas make a statement against Langy PROVINCIAL By IT Gully LANGWARRIN proved that it has what it takes to compete with the best in MPCA Provincial cricket after it knocked over reigning premier Peninsula Old Boys on Saturday. Chasing 231 for victory, Langwarrin passed the total with just four wickets down. It finished at 4/261 with 15 overs to play. Opener Taylor Smith and all-rounder Andy Johnson scored 100 each for the Kangas. Smith batted intelligently and patiently for his 100, which included 10 fours. Johnson blasted 12 fours and two sixes on his way to 105.

At one stage, the Kangas were in some trouble at 3/22 after Justin Parkes caused some early damage. Parkes finished with 3/36. Baxter left arm seamer Adrian Mack proved the old dog still had plenty of tricks as he tore through the Long Island batting line-up on Saturday. Defending a score of 165, Baxter bowled out the Islanders for 109 in the 62nd over. Mack was at his best, bowling 15 overs and picking-up 4/25. Dale Irving and Marc Uccello also joined the party, snaring two wickets each. Only four Long Island batsmen made it into double figures. Justin Bridgeman top scored with

33, Stephen Hocking scored 20, Paul Hartle 16 and Greg Lamb 12. Scott Phillips had his timber rattled for a duck off the bowling of Mack. Mt Eliza successfully defended its 263 against Rye. The Demons lost wickets regularly throughout the innings, limping to 159 in 65.3 overs. Skipper Darren Groves top scored for Rye with 43. Tom Baron was absolutely sensational for the Mounties with the ball, bowling 29.3 overs and finishing with the astonishing figures of 8/40. He bowled 15 maidens. Bobby Wilson guided Moorooduc to a fantastic victory against Heatherhill, blasting 126 to help his side to 7/281.

Chasing Heatherhill’s 260 for victory, the Ducs were in some early trouble, losing both openers with the score on nine. However, the skipper came to the rescue with a well crafted ton, while he received great support from the likes of Ben Williams (37), Mark Cordeux (35) and David Greensmith (31). Matty Meagher completed a wonderful game personally after adding 3/65 to his score of 41 in week one of the match. Crib Point fell 70 runs short of beating Mornington, bowled out for 190 in 66.2 overs. The Magpies lost their first four wickets for just 42 runs, before Brad Davidson (34) and Ricky Thompson (80no) offered some resistance.

Thompson was looking the goods for a ton but ran out of batting partners and was left stranded 20 runs short. Matty Harper was the pick of the Doggies bowlers with 6/34 from 11.2 overs. In the tightest match of the round, Mt Martha went within eight runs of beating Sorrento. After being 7/94 at one stage, chasing Sorrento’s 232, the Reds lower order dug in and almost got them over the line. Ben Schreuder finished with 71 before being the last man out as he scrambled for a run. Tim Bateman was also good with 23 and number 11 batsman, Curtis Stone, finished not out on 19.

Panther skipper was Dew a century SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully PEARCEDALE skipper Chris Dew scored 104 to help his side to victory against Carrum Downs on Saturday in Sub District cricket. Dew shared a 148-run Pearcedale partnership with Shayne Gillings, who batted at four and made 67, helping their side to 286, a win of just 10 runs after the Cougars made 276 last week. At one stage, the Panthers were 8/247, still 19 runs short of victory. However, Mitch Andrew (34) and Travis Unthank (11) made sure they got their side over the line. Chamara Perera was outstanding with the ball for the Cougars with 4/95, while Josh Harkness helped himself to 3/63 from 17 overs. Tootgarook completed the expected and easily defeated Dromana. Chasing just 127 in the first innings, the Tooters raced to 191 in 44 overs. Klint James top scored with 74 while David Timmer snared 5/30 and Zac Clan 3/34 for the Hoppers. Tootgarook then bowled Dromana out a second time for just 153. Andrew Thompson top scored with 37 and Matt Whelan was the chief wicket taker for the Tooters with 3/25. Tootgarook then needed 18 overs to score the 100 runs needed to complete the outright win. Whelan scored 39

and Gary Richardson 36. Balnarring recovered from being 5/20 to beat Rosebud. Balnarring was in all sorts of trouble early in the match, before the tale wagged. They recovered to be all out for 201. Jacob Cook made 60 batting at 10, Mitch Kleinig scored 27 batting at nine, Andrew Dowey scored 25 and batting at 11, Mitchell Skvor made 20. Jason Peirce, Jason Nagel and Brian Doughty all claimed three wickets each for the Buds. Red Hill was able to defend its first inning score of 233, bowling out Frankston YCW for 148 in 60 overs. Jason Tucker top scored for the Stonecats with 45, while Mathew Lane scored 26 before being run out. Glen Collett picked-up 3/42 and Nick Wood helped himself to 3/13. Tyabb smashed Skye but failed in its attempt to pick-up an outright win against Skye. The Yabbies made 222 in the first week of the match before bowling out Skye for just 61. Rienzie Wijeratne claimed 4/25 and Jack Raeside took 3/15 for the Yabbies. In the second innings, Skye finished on 6/110. Neil Earnshaw top scored with 28, while Sam Holland-Burch was the pick of the Yabbies’ bowlers with 3/33.

Wyatt smashes another ton for Main Ridge DISTRICT

By IT Gully MAIN RIDGE all-rounder Gareth Wyatt once again proved why is one of the best players ever to represent the Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association after he smacked 156 to guide his side to victory against Seaford Tigers. Chasing 265 for victory, Main Ridge appeared to be in a spot of bother at 3/69. However, keeper-batsman Ed Aarons and Wyatt joined one another at the crease and set about steering the Ridge ship to victory. Aarons was finally dismissed for 79 off the bowling of Corey Hand, while Wyatt went on to reach triple figures.

PAGE 52

James Abbott then played a cameo role at the end, scoring 68. Main Ridge finished their innings at 9/366, a commanding 100-run victory. Ash Mills snared four wickets for the Tigers, including the prized wicket of Wyatt. Pines made tough work of getting the 135 runs needed to beat Flinders. The Piners were 3/30 at one stage early in their innings, before Harley Peace-Stirling and Jeremy Weare got the side going again. Peace-Stirling scored 41 and Weare 35, while Ricky Anstill ensured victory with 25 runs, batting at nine. Dwayne Field bowled 28 overs and finished with 3/61, while Max Royal bowled 23 overs and finished with

Western Port News 22 October 2013

the tidy figures of 3/25, including 13 maidens. Hastings was always going to struggle to get the 329 runs needed to beat Somerville but had a reasonable crack, finishing 100 runs short. Ben King top scored for the Blues with 93, before being run out. Jake Hewitt also had a reasonable amount of time at the crease, scoring 35. Russell Wilkes was the best of the Eagles bowlers with 5/63 off 24 overs, while Daniel Kelly and Justin Allsop picked up two wickets each. Boneo did just enough to get the job done against Seaford. Resuming at 5/86, Cameron Williams (17) and Leigh Janssen (18) made sure Boneo got over the line. Chasing 117 for the win, Boneo snuck to 9/135 in 59 overs.

Ryan McQueen was the best of the Seaford bowlers, snaring 3/36. Delacombe Park made very light work of Carrum, winning by almost 100 runs. Defending 218, the Parkers rolled the Lions for just 127. Varun Singh was outstanding with the ball, picking-up 4/23 off 12 overs, while Ben Brittain was at his lightening best, taking 3/11 of 11 overs. Baden Powell went for the outright victory against Ballam Park but fell short. The Braves had to settle for the 12 points after scoring 9/164 in reply to the Knights’ 72. In their second dig, Ballam Park finished at 4/154. Jarryd Ward and Matt O’Malley each snared two wickets for the Knights.

Wickets tumble as Firsts fall to Doggies CRIB POINT CC By The Prez Provincial Firsts: Heading back to Mornington, the Firsts were full of confidence and looking to chase down the target of 263 set last week. The start could not have been worse, though, with last game’s top-scorer Matthew Blake back in the sheds for 8 and the score at 1/12. When Luke Herrington was unlucky to inside edge a ball on to off stump a short time later for 12, it looked like being one of those days for Crib. The partnership that was needed didn’t come as the score went from 2/42 to 4/42 after Luke Chapple fell for 3 and Waide Symes was trapped leg before without scoring. Brad Davidson and Henry Dolphin put their heads down and took the score to 75 before Dolphin edged one to second slip and was gone for a solid 33. At 5/75, Ricky Thompson joined Davidson and they knuckled down. After seeing off a tricky period before tea, the partnership had travelled along quite well before Davidson, on 34, flicked one off his foot and on to his stumps and was bowled. It was the beginning of the end for Crib as the team fought its way to 9/150 before some late hitting moved the score to 190 when the last wicket fell. Thompson was left unbeaten on 80. It was a disappointing day for Crib, which now sits at one and one, with a must-win game this week against Long Island. Provincial Seconds: After putting a modest total of 162 on the board, the Seconds returned to the field needing early wickets with Mornington resuming at 1/46.

Throwing the ball to youngster Will Lanigan and Neil Clarke proved a master stroke by captain Michael Cook as early wickets fell. In a disciplined bowling partnership both bowled to a plan and forced the batsman into mistakes and put the team in a fantastic position. In a tight finish, Crib Point bowled Mornington out for 146, 16 runs short of the target. Lanigan bowled with maturity beyond his years to finish with 5/48 from 21 overs, well supported by Clarke who picked up 2/25 from 10 overs. Also in the wickets were Dave Eaton with 2/18 and the “Big Cat” Scott Sparkes with 1/26. Batting again, Crib finished off a good day at 2/81, despite veteran Peter Mereszko being dismissed for a duck. Adam Keulen continued his great form to end the day on 56 not out and Neil Clarke followed his good work with the ball to make 26 not out. A3: After Rosebud scored 208 last week, the Thirds headed out to bat and got off to a shaky start, losing Brendon Budd early when he edge one to the keeper with the score on 5. This brought Travis Knott to the crease where he and captain Heath Lacey built a solid partnership. The second wicket fell with the score on 85, when Lacey was dismissed for 44, an innings that included five towering sizes. When Knott fell soon after for 33 with the score on 87, James Cook joined Craig Newton. They compiled a 127-run partnership, which took the side past the 208 needed for the first victory of the season. Craig Newton fell one run short of 50 and Cook plundered the attack to all parts of the ground for 66. C2: The Fourths played Pines in one the

team would rather forget. Captained by Kim Symes, Crib batted first and was dismissed for 83 in the 36th over. Only two batsmen made double figures – Andy Peacock 19 and Damian Moresco, batting at number 9, making 12. Pines batted and easily passed the target in the 12th over. A highlight for Crib was the bowling of Branden Wyatt returned 0/26 from his 5 overs. Under-16s: The team’s first outing for the year was at home against Rosebud. Under the captaincy of Hannah Buur, Crib lost the toss and fielded. Nick Lanigan took the ball first and was unlucky not to take a wicket with his second ball when a catch behind the stumps was missed. Club newcomer Steven Beach, playing his first game of cricket, took his first wicket in his second over. At the end of 20 overs, Rosebud had scored 3/122 thanks to some good bowling by Hanna Buur and Alex Devlin. Keenan Scott and Tyler Lewis opened but runs didn’t come easily and the side made 4/39 off its 20 overs. Lewis top-scored with 14. Under-14s: The team played Boneo with captain Jack Marshal winning the toss and electing to bat. Openers Ben Lanigan (4) and Jarrod Waddington (5) were followed by Clayton Gay, who retired at 20. Other good scores were Jack Marshal 16 not out and Nick Scott 9 not out, with the team making 3-85 after 20 over. Boneo passed the target on the last ball in a tense finish. Clayton Gay took 2/6 of 2 overs, Jack Marshal 1/2 off 2 overs and Jess Collins 1/8 thanks to a good catch from Victoria HoganKeogh. Other valuable contributions came from new players Jarrod Waddington and Ruby Hannaford.

Ben King misses century as Blues fall short HASTINGS CC By Greg Bradshaw HASTINGS’ Firsts fell well short of Somerville’s imposing 328 runs on Saturday in the first two-day game of the MPCA season. On the previous Saturday, Somie had compiled the total with the loss of 8 wickets with best bowling from Ben Johnson 2/61 and Luke Hewitt 2/63. Blues’ openers Brad Watson and Damien Smith got the innings off to a quick start but both were back in the shed by the 10th over, Watson for 20 and Smith for 12, Hastings 2/34. Ben King came to the middle and set about keeping the runs following but lost David Hull and Luke Hewitt, and Hastings was trouble at 4/84 after 28 overs. Jake Hewitt joined King and they produced a 111-run partnership and appeared to be in total control when King was run out for 93. The two young players were in a tense situation, but kept their heads and put the Somerville bowlers under pressure. As often happens with large partnerships, when one goes, the other follows soon after and Hewitt was caught after compiling 35, Hastings 6/195 with 20 overs remaining. The tail failed to wag and Hastings was dismissed for 224. This was a fair effort against this season’s pacesetters. A couple of dropped catches when Somie was batting proved costly. Man of the match: Ben King. Seconds v Somerville: Somerville 191 (Liam Bradshaw 3/51, Carey Sawosz 2/40 and Nick Guest 2/23). Hastings resumed at 1/21 but lost a wicket in the second over of the day, 2/22. Nick Guest joined Pat Foy and they put on 20 before Guest was bowled for 16. Matt Foy joined his Dad and they added another 30 runs before Pat was bowled for a patient 23, 4/72. Aaron Wilson and Matt Foy took the score to 5/98 before Wilson was dismissed and the game was in the balance. Matt Foy reached 40 before losing his wicket and at 6/115 things looked grim. Bradshaw provided a sniff of hope but when he fell to a good outfield catch for 18, the innings fell away and Hastings was all out for 152. It was a disappointing result to fall 40 runs short with 18 overs to play. Man of the match: Matt Foy. Thirds v Langwarrin: Langwarrin 108

excellent lines and Red Hill was soon in trouble at 3/33. Robb took the ball and had immediate success. After only three overs, he had figures of 4/7 and Red Hill was 6/38 in 15 overs and the game looked over. The Hillmen managed to bat through to the penultimate over and made 125. Lewis finished with 2/22 from 10 overs, Jay Austerberry 2/22, Robb 4/10, Finn 1/17 and Brodie Prestage took 1/14 and the man of the match award.

(Craig McNamara 4/24 and Jason Slocombe 2/3). Hastings resumed at 1/45 but lost Darweyn Bronsema for 12 and then Glenn Jansz for 20, 3/58. What happened from here is the stuff of nightmares as Hastings lost five wickets, including a hat-trick, to be 8/71 and facing defeat. Captain Slocombe and under-16s player Andrew Jeffs then set about scoring the runs needed and keeping out the fired-up Langwarrin bowlers, which they managed to do for 12 overs as Hastings reached 112 before Jeffs was bowled for a very important 8 runs. The last wicket fell next ball but Hastings had won. Slocombe finished with 34no and, with his two wickets, was man of the match. Fourths v Red Hill: In a rematch of last season’s grand final, Hastings batted first and scored a competitive 9/152 off its 40 overs. Under-16s player Brodie Prestage was the pick of the batsmen, scoring an unbeaten 41, batting for 27 overs and providing the backbone of the innings. Chris White opened with an impressive 37, Brett Gent hit a quick-fire 26, Stuart Burrows a solid 18 and Steven Robb 12. With runs on the board comes perceived pressure. Andrew Finn and Steve Lewis bowled

Under-16s v Long Island: Long Island chose to bat in the season’s first 20-over match. Against accurate bowling, the Islanders struggled to score and made 9/57. Aaron King took 3/14 in his first game, Lachlan Cox 3/12 and Andrew Jeffs 2/5. Hastings started its run chase with Matt Foy opening but he lost four partners in the first 9 overs and Hastings was in trouble at 4/33. Foy and Cox settled down to score the necessary runs as Foy raced to 52 retired and Cox made 6 in the match-winning partnership, Hastings finishing on 5/87 and a good win. Under-14s v Mt Martha 2: Hastings batted first, scoring an impressive 4/131 off its 20 overs. Shelby Lothian-Burdett retired after wellmade 31, Corbin Overton a handy 17no, Ryan McNamara 17, Harrison Jansz 12, Alex Walters 12no in his first game and Jackson Coles 11. Mt Martha batted steadily but was never in the contest and finished on 3/75. Lothian-Burdett grabbed 2/11 and the other wicket to fall was a run out. It was a good first-up win by the boys. Under-12s v Carrum Downs 2: Hastings batted first and scored 2/100 from its 20 overs. Patrick Wilson opened with 16 ret, Thomas Finn 15 ret, Devlin Webb 10 and Matt Dodd 8 ret. Carrum Downs batted and made 4/70. Max Bradshaw had best bowling figures of 2/7 from his 2 overs and Finn took 1/12. This was a good start by the boys playing serious cricket for the first time. Under-10s v Mt Eliza 2: Hastings made 4/33 from its 20 overs. Kade Seymour top-scored with 10 and Bailey Esler made 6. Mt Eliza replied with 6/57 with Harrison Merlmann taking 1/5, Lachlan Mitchell 1/5 and Seymour 1/7. The team is still in need of a couple more players, so come to training on Tuesdays at 4.30.
