Westpark’s got talent STAR power wowed the crowd at Hastings Westpark Primary School’s concert last Thursday night. The Dream Catcher was the culmination of two terms of creative workshops run by MusoMagic, founded by ARIA awardwinner and former Chocolate Starfish frontman Adam Thompson. Pupils performed in the packed hall in front of parents, staff and friends of the school as well as Mornington Peninsula Shire CEO Michael Kennedy and Cr David Garnock. Principal Mark Watters said the school’s 90 pupils as well as teachers had been working with MusoMagic to learn music-making including composition, production, event management, software skill development, creative writing, filmmaking, visual art and stagecraft. The workshops were part of Arts Victoria’s “extended school residencies”. “Just to see all the kids grow and be able to perform in front of so many people made me so proud and meant all the hard work was so worthwhile,” coordinator Sheryl Forrester said. Assistant principal Nicky Fammartino said “what they achieved was quite amazing and blew me away”. School’s name change on Page 9.

West Park to Wallaroo By Mike Hast WEST Park Estate in Hastings could be renamed Wallaroo with the change being proposed by Hastings Community Alliance and West Park Residents Action Group. The proposed change follows Hastings Westpark Primary School’s announcement last week that it will change to Wallaroo Primary School for the start of the 2014 school year (see inside). Alliance co-chairman Brian Stahl said there had been a certain amount of stigma associated with the public housing estate since it was built in the early 1970s. “The estate was isolated from the

main part of Hastings due to lack of public transport and was built on floodprone land,” he said. “Housing Commission contractors had to stabilise roads to even allow access to the estate.” He said Hastings-based developer Don Hodgins once lost a cow in mud in the area before it was bought by the government for public housing. The state government has spent millions over the years repairing roads, footpaths, drains and homes. Mr Stahl, who moved to Hastings in 1966, said the Housing Commission of Victoria built estates in the region at Frankston North (Pines Forest Estate, 1950s and 1960s), Hastings (West

Park Estate) and Mornington (Tanti Park Estate, 1960s and 1970s) as well as further afield, which created pockets of disadvantage. He said public housing should have been built throughout Hastings rather than in one area, “which is what is done nowadays”. The government started selling West Park homes to individuals in the 1980s, he said. Now only about 28 per cent of homes were owned by the state government. Mr Stahl said the Victorian government’s Hastings Neighbourhood Renewal project started in 2005 and had improved West Park as well as the town as a whole.

“There has been a big increase in community pride,” he said. Mr Stahl said West Park’s negative reputation was undeserved. “There are many families who have contributed to our community over many years.” Following the end of renewal project funding in June, the state government promised $80,000 and Mornington Peninsula Shire $40,000 to revitalise West Park Reserve, an under-utilised area in the centre of the estate. Area councillor David Garnock, also co-chairman of the alliance, said the project would “provide a familyfriendly environment for local people for many years to come”. It will include park furniture, more

lights, improved paths, planting of indigenous flora, creating a “village green” where residents can socialise, and installing a range of community art. When announcing the state government money, Hastings MP Neale Burgess said “residents involved in the Community Safety Working Group and, more recently, West Park Residents Group indicated they did not feel comfortable using West Park Reserve in its current state due to a lack of adequate lighting, ageing pathways, no seats or tables and past instances of vandalism”. The work is scheduled for completion mid-2014.

High-tech tools help fight family violence

Turning worms: Students and pupils of Western Port Secondary College and Tyabb Railway Station Primary School take a close look at worms being used in a worm farm.

Students’ garden lesson IT was a case of senior students teaching younger pupils about gardening when Western Port Secondary College’s environment team visited Tyabb Railway Station Primary School. The visit was part of the statewide Kids Teaching Kids Week, which focused on environmental topics through comedy, songs, quizzes, rap, plays and experiments. Western Port team members Luke Reardon and Kody Stuven-White introduced pupils at Tyabb to the benefits of sustainable gardening. Before helping them set up a worm farm and compost area, they used magnifying glasses to examine worms.

“It’s a fantastic leadership opportunity for members of the environment team to share their knowledge,” the college’s sustainability coordinator Helen Smith said. Across the state students taught each other about topics such as climate change, water, waste, conservation, energy, drought, habitat destruction, population and pollution. The Western Port team has won a Mornington Peninsula Mayoral Sustainability Award for its efforts. In March college students participated in workshops on how to build a model of a compost station and how to prepare compost.

By Chris Brennan POLICE and Mornington Peninsula Shire officials have welcomed the launch of an online service that provides 24-hour assistance to people who have experienced domestic violence. The Ask Someone website and mobile phone application provides access to free professional support and information for anyone who has suffered family violence in any form or has used violence against a family member. Peninsula residents can use the service to access a variety of support organisations in Melbourne’s south, including medical, legal and community services as well as police. The service was developed by the Southern Metropolitan Region Integrated Family Violence Executive in response to rising concerns about increasing reports of domestic violence, with Victoria Police statistics revealing an increase of almost 400 per cent in family violence-related crimes over the past 10 years. Southern Metropolitan Regional Integration Family Violence coordinator Linda Watson said domestic violence included physical harm, sexual assault, emotional, psychological, verbal, economic and social abuse. “It also covers threats to harm another family member or pets, and children who hear, witness or are exposed to the effects of family violence,” she said. Ask Someone provided a “unique

referral pathway” designed to link practitioners in the legal and family violence support services with clients. “Support services offer a range of care from early intervention to crisis response to women and children escaping family violence though to recovery. There are also programs to change the behaviour of men who use violence against their family. “Ask Someone brings another avenue for people to access these important services from a computer, smart phone or tablet safely and confidentially for free, 24/7.” Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Lynn Bowden said Ask Someone was a welcome addition to community support networks working to curb the rising tide of family violence. “Everyone has the right to feel safe in their family and home, and the shire is supportive of actions to reduce family violence,” Cr Bowden said. The shire’s health and wellbeing committee chair Cr Antonella Celi said the new service made the most of modern tools to provide a “smart way for people to gain access to local services anywhere, any time”. “The shire has committed to the development of a prevention of violence charter and action plan, and will be liaising closely with the community in its development,” Cr Celi said. “Family violence can stop. If you have experienced family violence or used violence against a family mem-

ber, seek free professional support and information.” Mornington Peninsula police commander Inspector Bryan Sharp said authorities were gravely concerned about the rising number of family violencerelated crimes being reported. The rate of family violence-related crime on the peninsula had increased from 660 instances per 100,000 people in 2008-09 to 1100 in 2012-13, official Victoria Police statistic reveal. “Family violence is an ongoing, statewide issue that exacts a terrible toll on families and the community,” Inspector Sharp said. “These destructive behaviours will remain a priority for police and support groups. “The Mornington Peninsula Family Violence Unit will continue to target recidivist offenders and offer support to victims, so I urge all members of our community to speak out against family violence.” Chief Commissioner Ken Lay also highlighted family violence as an area of growing concern for police across the state when the latest crime statistics for the 12 months to June 30 were released recently. “We know that family violence-related crime is significantly impacting on our crime statistics,” Mr Lay said. “Over the past 10 years, family violence-related crime against the person has increased by nearly 400 per cent.”

Link cameras snap into action

PENINSULA Link speed cameras were turned on for the first time last Friday morning, four days later than originally scheduled, but just in time for the school holiday rush. Speed cameras have been installed at six sites, with two point-to-point sections and three instantaneous detection points in either direction at each of them. Messaging on the variable message signs along the freeway changed to ‘Cameras Enforcing Now’ in the early

Ageing Well Expo

hours of Friday morning. The warning will stay in place as a reminder to motorists for the next month. Road Policing Command Superintendent Dean McWhirter said drivers needed to take extra care over the busy school holiday period on the Mornington Peninsula. “This is a timely reminder to everyone to obey the speed limit and ensure you arrive at your holiday destination safely”, he said. “We are giving the public plenty of warning that the

cameras will be activated and enforcing from midnight. If you are heading down to the Mornington Peninsula for the holidays with your family, take care on the roads, drive within the signed speed limit and you won’t get fined.” A recent test of the cameras detected more than 7500 motorists exceeding the speed limit over a 14-day period. Of those, more than 500 motorists were exceeding the limit by 15km/h or more and 66 of those would have lost their licences for excessive speeding.

Joey’s Cafe first in food THE pupil-run Joey’s Cafe at St Joseph’s Primary School in Crib Point is the first school canteen to be presented with certification in all areas of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Best Bites food program. Cr David Garnock presented certificates to the school for achieving qualifications in all areas of the BestBites program: food safety, nutrition, recycling, energy and water efficiency, and access for all. He said Joey’s Cafe opened fortnightly and served healthy, tasty and locally produced meals to parents and guests. Grade 6 pupils are responsible for all aspects of the cafe including menus, budgeting, purchasing, preparation and service.

“I’m really impressed that the cafe uses herbs and vegetables grown in the school garden, and it’s a great example of a sustainable food business,” Cr Garnock said. A survey of the peninsula’s 33 school canteens found that most qualified for Best Bites because of their high food safety rating, with 20 in the gold category. Food businesses across the peninsula can nominate for any or all of the six categories in the Best Bites Food Awards. For details and nomination forms go to www. mornpen.vic.gov.au or call 5950 1050. Nominations close 18 October and the awards will be presented at the launch of the 2013 Best Bites Food Guide in November.

Good taste: Shire councillor David Garnock at Joey’s Cafe at St Joseph’s Primary School in Crib Point with Daniel, Marcus, Grace, Billie-Jean and Indigo.

Burn off law changed for fire season: shire EASING of burning off rules on the peninsula is to allow residents to prepare for the coming fire season, says Mornington Peninsula Shire. In late August, councillors led by David Gibb and Andrew Dixon voted to allow burning off without having to obtain a permit “on land less than 1500 square metres” on Fridays and Saturdays between 9am and 4pm during October this year. Rules introduced a year ago when the shire revised its Local Laws removed “as of right” burning off on Fridays and Saturdays for residents on blocks of up to 1500 square metres (about quarter of an acre).

The shire was one of the last in the greater Melbourne area to allow burning off and the new rules were widely praised. A shire spokeswoman said people on 1500 square metre blocks could burn off in October provided that:  No more than 1 cubic metre of vegetation is burnt at any one time.  The fire is not within 10 metres of any neighbouring dwelling.  General Fire Safety Provisions are followed. Shire mayor Cr Lynn Bowden said easing of restrictions would assist owners of smaller properties to reduce fine fuel in the lead-up to summer, but

warned property owners to use it responsibly. “If you value this initiative for October 2013, do the right thing and adhere to the rules,” Cr Bowden said. She said material to be burnt must not be wet or green. General fire safety precautions should be taken at all times. “It’s a great chance to clean up around your property, but ensure you do it responsibly and safely, and keep your neighbours and local authorities informed,” she said. “Council encourages residents in the first instance to compost as much material as possible, utilise the shire’s fortnightly opt-in green bin service,

and council’s twice-yearly no-charge green waste weekends. “Materials should not be left on the property to accumulate and become a future fire hazard.” Cr Bowden said easing the rules would benefit residents “without a car or a trailer to transport bulky waste, and residents in areas of the peninsula with extensive die-back of trees”. General fire safety provisions include:  Giving notice to adjoining landowners and occupiers 24 hours prior to the burn.  Calling 1800 668 511 at least two hours prior to burning to log the fire with the CFA.

 Making a fire break of at least 3 metres.  Ensuring the fire is supervised by an adult at all times.  Having sufficient fire protection equipment on site at all times  Ensuring vegetation to be burnt is dead and dry (that is, no green waste).  Not burning if wind speed exceeds 20km/h. More details are at: www.mornpen. vic.gov.au or call 1300 850 600 or 5950 1000. Residents can determine the size of their property on the shire’s website at www.gisweb.mornpen.vic.gov.au/ penmaps

Time has come for Port of Hastings expansion MUCH has been made of the potential for expansion into container freight by the Port of Hastings over the decades, but it seems like things may move along a lot faster than originally thought. Not only has the Liberals’ former ports minister Denis Napthine bought a vision for expansion of the port to Victoria’s top political job but also the new Abbott federal government is now recognising that it will need to spend money on infrastructure to ensure the economy continues to grow. Treasurer Joe Hockey is quoted on the front page of the most recent Weekend Financial Review as saying that the Coalition would start road building “so we can immediately stimulate economic growth, create jobs and ensure Australians receive the productivity benefits of better infrastructure sooner rather than later”. If this approach is carried through to other large infrastructure projects, there is every chance that expansion of the Port of Hastings will be on the federal government’s agenda. Another development is the recent announcement by Esso that it will spend $150 million extending the life of its plant at Long Island Point near Hastings and intends to maintain “the safety and integrity of our operation” and “keep secure” the buffer zone around its Long Island plant (“Esso earmarks $150m for gas plant”, Western Port News, 10/9/13). This could be seen as a rebuff to the Port of Hastings Development Authority, which has plans to place

the first container berths inside or close to the risk contours around the Esso plant. Apart from the political will, there is also the predicament being endured by the port’s former largest customer, BlueScope Steel, which no longer uses its roll-on, roll-off facility in the port. If the loss-making BlueScope was to vacate the field, it would open the way for state and federal governments to come together and build the new container facilities further away from the Esso plant but south of the previously proposed location north of BlueScope’s holdings where the water is shallower. With both levels of government seeking opportunities for productivity by building infrastructure projects, the time may finally have come for the Port of Hastings. Chris Watt, Hastings

Water bills are overrated HAVE you all received your water bills? South East Water waived its magic wand and with its various exorbitant changes changed $18 of water use into a $232 water bill. The desalination plant credit (which is not deducted from the total anyway) is washed away by the new increased charges, courtesy of the Essential Services Commission. So pensioners struggle to keep their heads above water, but those without the concessions must be drowning. Because the method of charging is so extreme, we are now given an offer to pay monthly for these increased high costs. I’ll drink to that – water, of course. Name supplied, Hastings

Mornington needs metropolitan railway I WAS reading an article about the late Alan Hunt and saw some interesting facts. Firstly, the electric train to Frankston stopped at Mornington way back in the 1950s and has not progressed since. Why has there been no expansion or progress for 60 years? Victorian Railways had decided to extend the Frankston line to Mornington with a direct route but the locals did not want it. Why on earth would they not want a metropolitan electric train service? By now it would have extended to Rosebud or even all the way to Portsea, but Alan Hunt decided to back the locals at the time. Well, times have changed and it’s time to expand the electric metropolitan rail service down the peninsula. It has been done with the freeway (Peninsula Link) and can be done with the railway. Hastings got a rail service to serve the residents and industry but the western side of the peninsula has been ignored. A railway would reduce road traffic and congestion as well and atmospheric emissions. Patrick Geeves, Mornington

Growing threat to water security By Chris Brennan THE Mornington Peninsula faces growing risk of flooding and increased threats to water security unless significant improvements to water management practices are made, shire councillors were told last week. The shire’s latest water management plan, which was presented at last week’s council meeting, warns that without further investment in new sources of water, current efficiency programs would “fail to provide water security for the community past the next decade”. Councillors voted to endorse the release of the 2013-2017 Draft Smart Water Plan for public comment for a period of six weeks to ensure it “represents community expectation for sustainable water management into the future”. The draft plan states that, with a growing population, increased tourism, changes to land use practices and climate change pressures, traditional water supply solutions were not sufficient to provide adequate water security. “Without actively addressing water management issues, the peninsula is likely to become increasingly vulnerable to the impacts of reduced potable [drinking] water availability, increased susceptibility to flood events and urban heat island impacts, and environmental degredation of waterways, beaches and other natural assets.” Key targets contained in the draft

plan include a 30 per cent reduction in the shire’s 2010 potable water consumption, a 20 per cent reduction in groundwater use, and a doubling of council investment in water quality treatment measures. The plan, which was prepared by the shire’s renewable resources department team leader, aims to ensure the shire maintains its position as a leader in sustainable water management practices. “The Shire’s Draft Smart Water Plan sets the trajectory for achieving bestpractice environmental protection of waterways and bays, while integrating whole of water cycle management objectives,” a report prepared for council accompanying the draft plan states. “Mornington Peninsula Shire is considered a leader in sustainable water management within the industry. “With significant commitment to key projects such as the Boneo Recycled Water Scheme, the Mornington Community Recycled Scheme and strong advocacy for groundwater protection in the Nepean Aquifer, the shire has successfully continued to lead by example in sustainable water management. “The shire has also reduced its water consumption by 52 per cent since 2001 and has implemented more than 100 water sensitive urban design assets, which improve the quality of stormwater entering the bays and waterways. “The Draft Smart Water Plan integrates existing sustainable water management plans that were integral to these achievements since 2001.”

Backlash looms over Balnarring land By Chris Brennan BALNARRING residents have hit out at the omission of Balnarring village common from a new draft master plan for the town’s recreation space, claiming the move indicates land in the town centre may still be sold off despite promises from the council it would be retained for community use. While welcoming plans for a $2.5 million upgrade to Balnarring Recreation Reserve, members of the Balnarring Village Common residents group said they were “bitterly disappointed” a comprehensive master plan for the village common had been omitted from draft plans approved by Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors at this month’s council meeting. BVC chairwoman Bronwyn Dick said the council had originally indicated it was looking to sell two of four vacant blocks in the town centre but public opposition had forced it to back down. Officials then told residents all four blocks of land would be retained for community use and that a comprehensive master plan would be prepared. However, a draft master plan presented at this month’s council meeting shows plans for only Balnarring Recreation Reserve, sparking anger and disappointment among concerned residents. “We’ve been waiting for the master plan for a long time and we were excited with what we’ve seen, but then in the plan that was submitted, they’ve taken those four blocks off, and they’re the most important bits,” Ms Dick said. “We lobbied a year ago for them to do a master plan for Balnarring and that master plan has ended up being

purely this recreation reserve.” The shire’s strategic planning manager, Allan Cowley, confirmed that a master plan for only the recreation reserve had been submitted and that land in the village common was still being assessed – and could still end up being sold off. “The draft Balnarring Recreation Reserve master plan that is currently on public exhibition relates to the sporting and recreation reserve located on Balnarring Road,” Mr Cowley said. “The future use of the Civic Court Precinct (located on Frankston-Flinders Rd), including four parcels of council-owned land, is the subject of a different draft master plan being developed. This draft master plan is yet to be finalised and has not yet been considered by council. “Council had previously resolved to investigate the sale of two parcels of land; the current council has asked for this to be thoroughly reviewed and comprehensively assessed. “Shire officers have discussed an early draft of the plan with community groups, and the shire has now requested the planning consultants to prepare a thorough assessment of all options to provide additional context.” However, Ms Dick said the Balnarring community would never accept sale of the public space and warned the council faced a backlash. “We’re really disappointed because they have taken the main component that we’ve been fighting for off the table, because the council still wants to sell that land, even though the community is totally opposed to that,” she said. “People are shocked and horrified. They’re bitterly upset. They feel

The good news: Balnarring Recreation Reserve will get a $2.5m upgrade, including a new pavillion, toilets, netball courts, cricket nets and walking tracks, under a draft master plan submitted to council this month that is now available for public viewing.

slighted. And I guess the next step is they’ll be getting angry – and active. “They really shouldn’t try to fight us on this because they face a losing battle. It’s just not going to happen. “The community overwhelmingly wants to keep those blocks for community use and council are not going to be able to sell that land. There’d be too much uproar. But now they’re going to waste our time and waste our money fighting them, all over again.” Following a meeting held in March between council officials and concerned Balnarring residents to discuss

future use of the land, shire recreation and leisure manager Peter Gore said any plans to sell off the blocks had been abandoned. “Council had previously resolved to sell two of the four, but then abandoned the proposal based on feedback from the community, particularly the Balnarring Village Common group,” he said at the time. He confirmed that a master plan of the precinct had been commissioned to “identify ways to support recreation and cultural activities, trail and open space connections and enhance the

township character”. Ms Dick said had worked with council officials on those plans and that they were well advanced, making the decision not to table them and to reassess the possible sale of the village common land all the more bewildering. “They’ve spent so much money on landscaping consultants, they’ve spent community money on this, they ‘ve been working for six months planning this, and now because of one department it’s all be taken off the table – and it all seems to be just about money.” she said.

Name change for West Park school By Mike Hast HASTINGS Westpark Primary School will change its name to Wallaroo Primary School for the start of the 2014 school year. Principal Mark Watters said the school had undergone “significant change” in the past two years including adopting the innovative Walker Learning Approach, a play-based and personalised learning system. The system was introduced for years prep to year 2 in 2012 and years 3-6 in 2013. Mr Watters said the school was aiming to be the only Walker Learning state government accredited school on the peninsula in coming years. “Since adopting this approach, pupils have become better engaged and

are achieving better outcomes,” he said. “As part of the changes, the school will be renamed.” He said the school community was surveyed and “the vast majority of parents agreed that with all the positive changes occurring, the time was right for change”. “The community decided on the name of Wallaroo Primary School due to the school’s close links with Good Shepherd Community House and Wallaroo Preschool. The school’s entrance is on Wallaroo Place.” Westpark primary started in 1980 to take children from West Park Estate, built in 1971 by the state government’s Housing Commission to accommodate workers building the Lysaghts steel

School council president Chris Roberts said the school community was “excited about the change”. She said there would be a new uniform, with colours decided after a survey of students, parents and staff. Mr Watters said it was an exciting time to be principal “with so many innovative changes occurring”. He said it was fantastic that parents were now volunteering to be involved with the school and its 90 pupils. Mr Watters said the school “provides a child-centred approach to learning

where the educational emphasis is to provide learning experiences that enable each child to develop at their own rate and to the best of their ability”. He said the Walker Learning Approach was “based on the knowledge that children vary in the rate and manner in which they learn”. The school has 12 permanent classrooms as well as general purpose room, staff room, library, computer lab, art and craft room, and canteen. Classrooms have computer pods that cater for 8-12 children at a time. All computers are linked and have internet access.  A wallaroo is a moderately large macropod between the size of a kangaroos and a wallaby. The word is a combination of wallaby and kangaroo.

NEWS DESK Lights for off-ramp THE state government will spend $480,000 to install traffic lights at the intersection of Mornington Peninsula Freeway off-ramp and Nepean Highway at Dromana. Nepean MP Martin Dixon said in the five years to December 2012, there have been eight crashes including one fatality and three serious injuries at the intersection. The money will come from the government’s Safer Road Infrastructure Program. He said the lights would “reduce the likelihood of motorists turning right from the off-ramp and failing to give way to eastbound traffic”. The work would start early next year and be completed in June.

Coast comment

Ready for the real thing: Frankston Hospital doctors undergoing training for the RESUS4KIDS program included Enoch Lee, Ramani Kone, Kathy McMahon, Cara Baillie and medical student Muhammad Bin Haji Adi.

New program to save the children MEDICAL staff at Peninsula Health are being taught a new program designed to resuscitate children who have suffered a respiratory or cardiac arrest. The RESUS4KIDS program is designed for health care workers attending to a child within 10 minutes of a collapse. Peninsula Health is the first Victorian health service to use the resuscitation program based on

Australian Resuscitation Council guidelines. The one-day course also teaches health professionals how to work together as a team. The program has an e-learning module and a short, practical component. “Children are not just little adults and therefore it is important for the safety and care of children that staff have access to good quality, evidencebased and user-friendly achievable education,”

paediatrics clinical director Dr Kathy McMahon said. “The e-learning component has been designed to be implemented in stages. “You don’t have to do it all in one session. However, it must be completed before you attend the practical course.” Observers came from Southern Health, The Alfred hospital, Barwon Health and Eastern Health.

PUBLIC comment is being invited for a draft planning strategy by the Victorian Coastal Council for the state’s coastline. The strategy is described as a “wholeof-government policy and long-term framework for planning and managing the coastal and marine environment”. The first stage in preparing the strategy is releasing the draft for public consultation. The draft strategy outlines a proposed approach to planning and managing the coast and marine environment. The coastal council says the draft gives Victorians a chance to have a say on how the coast is managed. The strategy can be found at vcc.vic. gov.au and submissions can be made by post or email to: Victorian Coastal Council, PO Box 500, East Melbourne 3002. The nearest public meeting being held to discuss the strategy is 6-7pm on 21 October at the Silverwater Resort in San Remo.

French Islanders hit out over ferry service By Chris Brennan STATE transport officials have committed to a review of ferry operations connecting French Island to the mainland following a heated public meeting last weekend at which residents voiced concerns over the reliability of the service. French Island residents turned out en masse to the meeting last Sunday, which was organised by Hastings MP Neale Burgess and attended by Public Transport Victoria officials and an adviser to the Minister for Transport, following numerous complaints about the high number of cancellations of ferry services. About 80 residents filled the island’s public hall to express their frustration at the impact the unreliable ferry service was having on their lives, including missed medical appointments, children being stranded on the mainland and not being able to return home from school, and food running out with islanders unable to get to shops. “How would you feel if your children went to school in the morning and were not able to return home at night? How would you cope? Worried about them and trying to make arrangements for them to stay with a friend or somewhere safe?” one island mother asked PTV officials. Mr Burgess said it was important public transport officials heard for themselves from the community about the frustrations and anxieties they were forced to endure in having to rely on Inter Island Ferries’ French Island service. “I found it very disturbing to hear that school children going through important but stressful assessment periods of their education are losing sleep worrying about whether the ferry is going to run the next day and whether they will be able to get to school,” Mr Burgess said.

Fired up: Inter Island Ferries operator Frank Denvir, left, is invited to address French Island residents at a public meeting by Hastings MP Neale Burgess, right, who convened the event.

He pledged to “continue to work to resolve this issue for French Island residents” but was unable to provide a time frame for any action. PTV spokeswoman Helen Witton acknowledged the concerns of residents and said the matter was now being reviewed. “Public Transport Victoria representatives, in conjunction with Mr Neale Burgess MP, Member for Hastings, recently attended a meeting with French Island residents to discuss their concerns,” she said. “PTV and Mr Neale Burgess MP are now reviewing the concerns raised and will provide a response back to residents once the review is complete. “PTV understands that the ferry is a crucial transport link for French Island residents and so we will look at how things can be improved.” Also attending the meeting was ferry operator Frank Denvir who reacted angrily to some of the claims made by residents.

Snowy began a decade of dedication on the stage By Jeff Cox PELICAN Theatre Company is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its first show, The Man From Snowy River performed in the Hastings Hall (pictured). With a cast of 36, the first performance was on Thursday 4 September 2003, followed by a Friday evening and Saturday afternoon matinee and evening performances. It was repeated on the same days the following weekend, eight performances in all. The Man From Snowy River was well accepted by audiences. It was a hilarious comedy spoof on the origi-

nal story. The man was the feature of the play and was brilliantly portrayed by Wayne Smith, a Hastings resident who had never been on stage before. The company has performed 28 shows with the next one, Actors For Hire, starting rehearsals this week. The enthusiasm of the many talented people, young and old, goes right back to Snowy River, and some of them still performing today were in the first show. There is a list of all the shows on the company’s website as well as photos, historical information and more. Actors For Hire will be performed in late November. Details at www.pelicantheatre.org.au

Governance manager Noel Buck to retire By Mike Hast MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s long-time governance and corporate support manager Noel Buck is retiring. Mr Buck’s job was advertised in The Age last Saturday week. The shire is offering a salary package of $160,000 for someone who will “provide strategic advice and management of customer service, risk management and insurances, and governance support for the whole organisation”. The governance manager oversees four team leaders and 42 staff. Mr Buck is also executive officer of the Mornington Peninsula Cemetery Trust. He has been in the local government sector for 38 years.

A resident of Beaconsfield Upper in the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges, Mr Buck will unlikely miss the long commute to the shire’s Rosebud office where he is based. He joined the shire after Victoria’s 1994 council amalgamations when 210 municipalities were reduced to 78. The shire was created by the merger of Flinders, Mornington and Hastings shirs. Mr Buck’s job is generally low profile but he made news in 2011 over the reappointment of shire CEO Michael Kennedy in 2004 and 2008 when a ratepayer in 2009 asked Mr Buck for Dr Kennedy’s contract. There followed months of controver-

I’m just raising it because it’s so unusual ... so unusual ... I’m not saying it’s wrong ...” Mr Buck said that “as a practitioner of 35 years in local government I think that I should have at least a view on council structures and council wards, etcetera”. “That may be true, Mr Tully said. “As I say, I’m only putting it there for you to consider.” Mr Buck then proceeded with his submission, telling the chairman: “Look, I don’t have a lot to add.”

Lessons, film for seniors CLASSES at peninsula libraries and an adventure film are part of activities being planned for this year’s Seniors Festival from 6-13 October. The movie Go Grandriders will be shown in Mornington and Rye, and libraries will run classes on writing memoirs and how to use an iPad to read digitised books. Go Grandriders follows 17 Taiwanese senior citizens on a 13-day motorcycle adventure. Most of the riders were aged in their 80s and took on everything from fatigue and arthritis to cancer and heart disease to defend their right to ride. Screenings will be introduced by Jeanette Lane, a peninsula resident and an inaugural member and executive member of Mornington Peninsula Advisory Committee for Elders. Go Grandriders starts at 1.30pm in Rye

Civic Hall, Nelson St, Rye, and at 6.30pm at Mornington Peninsula Shire council chambers, Queen St, Mornington. Gold coin donation entry includes light refreshments. Bookings essential on 5950 1685, email: spcd.admin@mornpen.vic.gov.au or online at: gograndriders-rye.eventbrite.com.au/ for Rye session or gograndriders-mornington. eventbrite.com.au/ for Mornington. Author Ed Marshall will run two-part memoirwriting workshops at libraries in Mornington, 10 and 17 October, call 5950 1820 and Rosebud, 8 and 15 October, call 5950 1230. How to find, borrow, download and read e-books will be held at Hastings library on Monday 7 October, call 5950 1710; Mornington library on Tuesday 8 October, call 5950 1820; and Rosebud library on Thursday 10 October, call 5950 1230.

Finding marine precincts MORNINGTON Peninsula Marine Alliance is holding a planning workshop at 6pm on Thursday 21 November at Hastings Community House, 185 High St, Hastings. It will identify suitable locations for the development of marine precincts with direct access to Western Port or Port Phillip. Alliance executive officer Bruce Douglas said feedback from the workshop would be included in a marine precincts study being produced by the end of the year. “The precincts will help businesses to remain here and expand rather than be coerced to other regions,” he said. “It is timely having regard to the Port of Hastings development as we want to be able to support businesses serving the port and its ancillary functions.” The alliance was formed in 2011 after Mr Douglas, the former Mornington Peninsula Shire

infrastructure director, conducted an initial study of the sector in late 2010. The sector is the largest by turnover in the shire, surpassing BlueScope Steel, the naval base at HMAS Cerberus and the shire council. Mr Douglas said the peninsula’s commercial and recreational marine industry employed about 1100 workers, served 25,000 people and contributed $200 million a year to the peninsula’s GDP. Foundation members of a board formed in 2011 were Hastings-based Crib Point Engineering, Hart Marine of Mornington, Sealite of Somerville, Wooden Boat Shop of Sorrento, Yaringa Harbour of Somerville, the shire’s economic development manager Shane Murphy and Mr Douglas. Seed money came from the five businesses and the shire. New members were Martha Cove Marina and Searoad Ferries. Details: Bruce Douglas, 0457 785 159 or email sholcons@bigpond.com

Ready to wear: Diane Falconer of Southern Peninsula Food For All with a jumper that was included in the latest delivery of garments and blankets to St Vincent de Paul Mornington Peninsula Conferences for distribution to needy families.

Knitters deliver winter warmth KNITTERS on the Mornington Peninsula have brought winter warmth to needy people. Another load of rugs, jumpers, scarves, mittens and beanies has been delivered to Rosebud-based Southern Peninsula Food For All for its winter blanket appeal. Wool for the effort was provided by the Carrum Downs branch of the Bendigo Bank.

“We are also grateful to staff at the other Bendigo Bank branches on the peninsula who have helped by accepting wool and finished articles for collection,” senior manager Len Barda said. He said hundreds of squares were also delivered to Needy Stitches at Frankston for sewing into blankets.

The club meets midday-4pm on Thursdays at Mt Martha House, corner the Esplanade and Dominion Rd. “The opportunity to do something a little different in our daily lives is something to look forward to,” member Ron McLeod said. “We enjoy good company, carpet bowls, cards and other games. From time to time we have musical groups visiting and organise bus trips with space provided for wheelchairs and walkers. “Come along and visit us, enjoy the good humour and laughter and, of course, the afternoon tea puts the icing on the cake.” For details call Ron McLeod on 59742740 or 0427 742 740.

Top spa award PENINSULA Hot Springs near Rye has won the Australasian Spa Association best natural bathing spa award. When accepting the award at a ceremony on the Gold Coast, director Charles Davidson attributed the win to the 190 “incredible staff members who make the whole experience possible”. Two spas from New Zealand – Polynesian Spa and Hanmer Springs – were runners-up. Mr Davidson said it was a “proud moment … to be recognised among world-renowned thermal mineral springs facilities and regions”.

Now open: Frankston mayor Sandra Mayer, left, Howard Hinds with his father-in-law, 15-year Baxter Village resident Frank Wootton, and Mark Brandon at last week’s opening of the renovated Stanley Lodge. Picture: Gary Sissons

Take a gander, the geese are back THEIR numbers may have been decimated earlier this year, but the geese on the artificial lakes at Civic Reserve in Mornington are on the comeback trail. More than 82 geese and 45 ducks were caught and trucked out to lodgings on private land at Devon Meadows because the lakes were unable to sustain their growing numbers. The birds that managed to evade capture have dutifully followed nature’s course and have been breeding.

Far outnumbered by native water hens, coots, chestnut teal and black ducks – with a sprinkling of domestic ducks – about 10 geese stand tall on the edges of the lakes. The three surviving goslings of one pair are a natural attraction for children and dogs, although the adult birds let out warning hisses if anyone comes too close. Passing dogs get the same treatment, with the proud parents ushering their inquisitive youngsters into the water for safety. Keith Platt

FEATURE PROPERTY

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Luxury that’s all yours THE sophisticated design of this near-new brick-veneer home is hard to beat. Set on a 798-square metre block in a new sub-division full of quality homes, this versatile home has a clever floor plan incorporating three living zones that allow new owners to adjust the living space to their requirements, rather than yield to convention. Living areas at the front and back of the home are a great example of this freedom to choose. A room at the front of the home would be great for a formal lounge or rumpus room and the same options apply to a second area that leads out to an undercover entertaining area at the rear of the home. The main open-plan living area features an elegant galley-style kitchen, complete with stone benchtops. Stainless-steel appliances include a wall oven and dishwasher. There is also a walk-in pantry. An adjoining dining and casual living zone overlooks lowmaintenance gardens that have been landscaped with yucca plants. A nice contrast to the gleaming white interior are the black plantation shutters that have been used in the second lounge at the rear of the home and along the hallway that leads to a handy study area outside the bedrooms. Three bedrooms have built-in robes, while the larger main bedroom has a walk-in robe and ensuite. Outside is a superb undercover entertaining deck – with a built-in six-person spa – that overlooks a neat bark garden and play area. A great feature of the property is an expansive sealed area at the front of the home that provides off-street parking for a number of vehicles, in addition to the double garage. Presented in perfect condition in a wonderful new estate to match, any family wanting to upgrade and plan for future growth should act quickly here. Address: 20 Hector Close, BITTERN Price: $480,000-$510,000 Agency: Ben Tallon Real Estate, 1/34 High Street, Hastings. Agent: Wendy Tallon, 0419 135 836

Enjoy being cared for Home truths: Harrison Craig is “just cruising along” after returning home to Chelsea after winning The Voice and travelling overseas. Pictures: Yanni

Harrison’s home run to fame By Hadyn Godony SINCE winning The Voice, life has been a whirlwind for Harrison Craig. The now famous teen makes fewer trips to his local shopping strip in Chelsea, preferring to avoid the many high-fives he is likely to be in for when he ventures out into his hometown hub. “I’m just cruising along today, but yep, it’s not very often that I go to the shops now because of that, but at the same time it’s quite enjoyable,” Harrison said. Harrison appears calmly focused on making the best of his somewhat mammoth win. Not long ago, while chatting with his chosen mentor Seal, Harrison asked: “How do you measure your success?” To which Seal replied “Happiness”. Reflecting on that now, with much success already behind him, the 19-year-old is humbly taking fame in his stride. “I guess that you can measure success in two ways, because I’ve kind of come to the conclusion that when you get to the point where you’re as good as everyone else, you then measure your success against your own best, not anyone else’s,” Harrison said. “Everyone has their own style and quirks. For example, it’s easier for Beyonce to do a trill than it might be for Andrea Bocelli. “So it is something that you need to think about or at least, that is the conclusion that I have come to. “Being on The Voice was just terrific. There wasn’t a dull moment; it was just terrific for the whole time. In the semi-finals, Harrison nailed his rendition of perhaps the greatest love song of all time, Unchained Melody, making the classic track a personal piece, rather than a righteous carbon copy. “When we rehearsed that, we jumped into the room and we sang through it, then Seal said ‘Oh my god, that was superb’ so I thought,great there’s not too much I need to do with it. “Then he said that you need to make this song really big and pretty much that’s what we did. The last note needed to fit the epic feel of the song. I’ve just come from a two-week writing and recording trip to the United States. “On the way back I called in to France to see Seal. I spent a week with him, so that was great. In the three weeks away I caught 10 international flights. I had a ball.”

Harrison hooked up with his manager in the United States but also travelled solo much of the time. Prior to that, he performed at about a dozen shopping centres across Australia. “Every single time I perform, I’m ‘up there’. Right now, he says his focus is on More than a Dream tour, which includes three shows at Crown Casino. “After that we are planning the next record which will come out next year. We really want to make a record that hits everyone for ten. “So planning that while also taking a writing trip was important to me. I really want to write and make my own mark on everything and so a part of that will be to use some of those songs for the album. “But keep in mind that you might write 100 songs but maybe only want to use two. It’s a fine line between a good song and a great song. “I really need to pick and know what song will work for me. What I’m doing now is my passion and my drive and a joy and a pleasure. But there is still some time to relax. “Just the other day I went with a friend to a cute little cafe in Mt Eliza. I really love the peninsula; Sorrento, Mornington, Crib Point are really beautiful.” For tour dates click on harrisoncraigofficial.com

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

America getting a crash course in Australia, man injured in landslide Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 27 September 1913. MR Fred Davison, President of the Australian Society of America, has contributed an article to “The Big Aus” in which he contends that if exhibits of Australian products were displayed in America, lantern slides of Australian country and towns shown, and interesting lectures delivered, the result would be a much more correct knowledge of Australia by Americans, a substantial increase of business between the two countries, and genuine settlers for the wasteland in Australia. Two hundred thousand Americans leave the United States every year to settle in Canada. But they do not leave because they get a vague notion that Canada is a pretty good place to go to. Last year Canada signed 7000 advertising contracts with the newspapers. She has exhibited lecturers in the States, and the lecturers get what they go after. Canada counts that the settler is worth paying good money for, and she pays it, not haphazardly, but systematically. She wants the settler, and she secures him. Australia, he adds, must do the same. “She has very much more to offer than has Canada, only the folks have nothing but wrong notions about Australia, while the Canadian sees to it that they know what there is to know about Canada - if it be good. Thousands of Americans - genuine settlers - can be induced to settle in the Northern Territory if the country and its prospects are made known to them.” *** AN accident happened last week to

one of the employees, named James, while working at the Naval Base. While on duty, a fall of earth occurred, which fell on James. Luckily although severe enough to cause the unfortunate man intense pain, nothing serious occurred. After receiving the attention of the first aid attendant, we are pleased to report the patient is progressing satisfactorily. *** THE report of the Mornington race club meeting was received too late for publication, but will appear next issue. A programme of 7 events was drawn up, and the prize money was increased from £72 to £81. *** MR Leslie Westaway, of Somerville, had a shock one day last week. A jibbing pony started off suddenly, when he slipped and fell. The wheel of the vehicle went over his leg, and somewhat bruised it. He is now limping round at his work. *** MESSRS Alex. Scott and Co., will hold their usual monthly market at Tanti on Monday, October 6th. On Thursday, October 9th, the same firm will conduct a special horse sale at the Tanti Corporation Yards when a good yarding is expected. *** MR Jos. Thompson, of Crib Point, notifies by advertisement in this issue that he has now a full stock of timber, paints and oils, and general ironmongery, and that he is prepared to give estimates for all classes of work. *** MR Rintoul, a poultry expert recently appointed by the Department of Agriculture, is to deliver a lecture at the Methodist Church, Langwarrin, on

Monday evening, the 29th inst, under the auspices of the Progress Association. As the lecturer has such a world wide knowledge of his subject, which is to be on the hatching and rearing of chickens and all poultry, all interested should attend. The lecture starts at 8 p.m., and is free to all. *** THE committee of the Somerville Mechanics’ is to be congratulated on the new departure it made on Wednesday night of last week, when arrangements were made with Mr Le Souef to give his lecture on the bird life of the islands off the coast of Queensland and the islands in Bass Straits. There was a good attendance of both young and the more matured. The pictures manipulated by Mr Searle were with one exception taken from life and were most interesting. This class of entertainment is a treat and the committee are to be complimented for this move in an educational direction. A vote of thanks was moved and carried by acclamation, to the lecturer and his assistant. *** CLARENCE H. Smith, Limited, Ardrossan, South Australia, advertises in our columns that agents are wanted everywhere to sell on commission the famous Smith ploughs. *** THE next of the series of socials in connection with St. Paul’s Church, Frankston, will take place in the Mechanics’ Hall on Wednesday evening next. A good programme has been prepared, and an enjoyable evening is assured. *** THE death occurred at Somerville on Tuesday, 23rd inst., of Mr Henry

Joseph Noble, aged 54 years. The deceased gentleman was a resident of the district for many years, and was well known and highly respected throughout the Peninsula. He leaves a widow and five children to mourn their loss, and we extend to them our heartfelt sympathy in their sad bereavement. *** THE first train to travel along the new line which is in construction from Crib Point railway station, to the Naval Base Depot ran on Wednesday. This line is to be used for Base purposes only, and is between two and three miles in length. *** THE weekly assembly that is being held every Tuesday in the local hall as well patronised last week, it being the monthly long night. These dances, which are thoroughly enjoyable, are the means of bringing many friends and neighbours together. *** THE concert and dance held in the hall on Thursday by the Hastings Variety Company was a great success. A full report will appear in next week’s issue. *** DEEP sympathy is expressed by many of the old residents on hearing of the death of Mr H. Peddle, the much valued postmaster at Hastings. Mr Peddle was much esteemed by those who had a distance to travel. When doing any business he was always willing to help them in any way. *** THE annual meeting of the cricket club was rather hurriedly called, and was held on Wednesday, 17th inst. It was intended to wait until after

the first meeting of the Peninsula Cricket Association had been held, but time would not permit any further delay. About a dozen members were present, and the necessary arrangements for carrying on the club for another season were completed. The secretary (Mr A. E. Hollier) read the annual report, balance sheet and averages for the past season, all of which pointed to the flourishing condition of the club. The highest batting average recorded by Mr J. D. Grant, was as follows:- 14 innings, 396 runs, highest score 74, not out 2, average 33. The following splendid bowling average was put up by Mr Fred Floyd:- 14 overs, 29 maidens, 808 runs, 52 wickets, average 592. The balance sheet showed a credit balance of £3 11s 11d. *** BEFORE Messrs P. Cohen P.M, J. G. Barrett, G. Flood, E. L McCaughan, A. E. Bates, E . Duffus and Dr Somers J’s.P, Mrs O. Gorman v. W. Hendricks, claim for £1 for board and lodging. An order was made for the amount with 5s costs. James White sued Thomas O’Connor, claim for £12 amount due for a pony sold and delivered. Mr McInerney appeared for complainant and Mr Cook for defendant. This case was heard before a local Bench of Magistrates on the 11th inst., and as they could not agree the case was adjourned in order that witnesses who were unable to attend, and it being also Mr Cohen’s day. After several witnesses were called on both sides, the case was dismissed with £5 costs against complainant. A number of renewals of stage, carriage and carriers’ licenses were granted.

The doctor is in at Manyung Gallery Sorrento DOCTOR of creative arts Bruce Earles opened an exhibition of his colourful paintings at the newly refurbished Sorrento arm of Manyung Gallery on Saturday 21 September. Sorrento now boasts 10 ‘art spaces’, some seasonal. “Manyung’s presence in Sorrento enhances and contributes to the precinct’s growing recognition as a regional focal point for viewing art, particularly works on canvas,” gallery director David WemyssSmith said. Earles’ established a reputation, on the peninsula during the 80s, for his astute brushwork which sometimes trumpeted environmental themes. At the

time he was a member of the Roar Studios Collective in Fitzroy. Today, with enduring creativity, his works are often held as investment pieces that are also especially appropriate for brightening up dull wall space. Highly coloured, highly textured, busy, joyful birds-eye views of urban life. Fleeting images of city experiences in a seaside setting: birds, dogs, trees, ships, planes and factories. Simple images combined with complex structure, creating a harmony, in total, that is often uplifting and encourages a curiosity to closely view. Manyung at Sorrento is at 113A Ocean Beach Road.

The meaning of existence (and other short stories)

By Stuart McCullough

The Ugly Truth About Being Ugly By Stuart McCullough IMAGINE it. There you are, minding your own business when, out of nowhere, the world’s media descends like rain, wanting to know everything about you. Not because you’ve done something spectacular or have discovered anything miraculous, but just for being yourself. It would be unnerving to say the least. But what might seem intrusive becomes downright insulting when the reason for all this unsolicited attention becomes clear – you have just been voted by a substantial margin the ‘world’s ugliest animal’. It would be difficult to know how to respond. Spare a thought, then, for Australia’s own ‘Blobfish’. The circumstances may not be ideal but, when all’s said and done, everyone loves a winner. Being crowned the world champion of anything will invariably open up a bunch of opportunities, including for this previously underappreciated creature. It begs the obvious question: if being crowned Miss Universe can get you a spot on a travel show and a sponsorship with a major department store, what bounty of riches awaits the Blobfish? Host of Deal or No Deal? Guest judge on The X Factor? Perhaps even a role on Neighbours? Let’s face it – the cast has sorely lacked diversity over the years. They may have had a ‘Toadfish’, but I don’t believe they’ve ever had a ‘Blobfish’. I, for one, look forward to the day when the Blobfish strides

across the stage to collect a Logie for ‘Best New Talent’. If it were up to me, I’d ensure that Australia’s newest hero steered clear of the soaps in favour of something with a little more class. Like TV’s The Bachelor. Forget hauling out some spruced-up male model with chiseled good looks, dimples, designer stubble and abdominals that resemble a slate roof. Being good looking has been done to death and, quite frankly, is as dull as cleaning your ears. In fact, there’s something inherently tiresome about conventionally handsome peo-

ple; so much so that’s it’s bordering on cliché. I’d go so far as to say that shows like The Bachelor suffer greatly because everyone involved is (at least externally speaking) horrifically good-looking. It’s time to mess with the formula. What it needs, more than anything else, is a different perspective. Imagine the Blobfish; dressed in a tuxedo, taking prospective life partners out on dates and dishing out roses like nobody’s business. Now that’s a television show worth watching. But for all the perks that sudden fame can bring, it’s worth remember-

ing that the poor old Blobfish did not shamelessly seek out all this attention. Presumably it did not nominate itself as the ‘world’s ugliest animal’. It wasn’t even an intruder in the Big Brother house. No, the Blobfish has become famous purely by chance. Plucked both from obscurity and the ocean somewhere off the coast of Queensland, it now has to defend itself to a world obsessed with physical appearance. That said; the humble Blobfish is used to pressure. That’s because when it isn’t busy being famous and winning awards, it lives in waters between six and twelve hundred metres deep. At that depth, the pressure is dozens of times greater than at sea level and many creatures, including other members of the Big Brother house, would be unable to survive. This, of course, is not necessarily a bad thing. The Blobfish, however, thrives in this environment by being a gelatinous mass that expends as little energy as possible on fripperies such as swimming. What it hasn’t got in muscles it more than makes up for by not being a fussy eater, consuming any edible matter that happens to float in front of it. As it happens, I took almost exactly the same approach during my teenage years. Just because the Blobfish is unlikely to be confused for George Clooney is no reason to hate him. Besides, what he lacks in traditional good looks he

more than makes up for with personality. And that goes double for the Blobfish. As for me, I feel that this pink, gelatinous mass that floats along the bottom of the ocean may well be something of a kindred spirit. So before we get caught up debating what is and isn’t ugly, allow me to be the first to say: enough! It’s time for us to lighten up. We don’t all need to be supermodels and it would be a horrible world if we were. It’s all a matter of preference anyway. Ugliness, just like beauty, is very much in the eye of the beholder. There’s no need to accept someone else’s opinion as to what is or isn’t aesthetically pleasing. Beauty is wherever you find it. Even at the bottom of the ocean. I, for one, say give me a Blobfish over The Bachelor any day of the week. Should it happen to be accompanied by chips and a light salad, then so much the better. So to any Blobfish that might be reading this, don’t let others bring you down. I think you’re terrific. I believe you should be celebrated rather than derided and I’d like to see you added to our coat of arms at the earliest opportunity. Why? Because, in a funny kind of way, you represent us all. In truth, there’s a little bit of Blobfish in each and every person. Well done on your award. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Peninsula League 2013 round-up: Eagles eye off back-to-back flags By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly EDITHVALE-Aspendale coach Troy Shannon is already looking forward to the 2014 season, just a week after tasting the ultimate success in Peninsula League football. After celebrating a sensational come from behind victory against Bonbeach in the Grand Final, Shannon said the focus was now firmly on 2014. “I was reappointed a month before the finals for 2014 and we are already a fair way down the track with a couple of recruits for next year,” Shannon said. “I have no doubt that we’ll be stronger again next season. “There was certainly some chat immediately after the premiership from some of the guys, talking about retiring. However, later in the week, the talk shifted towards going back-toback.” Shannon said 2013 was a sensational year for the club, coming from the wooden spoon the year before. “A lot of people wouldn’t have known that of the 22 who played in the premiership, 18 of those guys played juniors with our club,” Shannon said. “It just goes to show how quickly things can turn around if you recruit wisely. “Matthew Kremmer, Drew Westfield and Markham Johnson were the three big blokes we needed up forward, down back and in the ruck. All played a key role in us winning the flag. Adam Budge was the big, strong midfielder we needed. “We recruited smartly for what we needed and the results didn’t surprise.” Away from the emotion that was

grand final day, Shannon said he never lost faith in his players winning the Grand Final. Down by five goals at three quarter time and with players appearing injured or sick, Edithvale booted six goals in the last quarter to overrun the Sharks. It was an amazing feat. “We always thought that if we were close enough to them at three quarter time, we could give it a real shake. “I just told the players to believe in themselves, don’t leave anything in the tank and try anything and everything to get a spark. “We had a dozen players in the side who had lost two grand finals before and they didn’t want to make it three. From the 16-28 minute mark of the last quarter, the Eagles soared to new levels. Although he tried to play it down, Shannon also masterminded some changes that contributed to the win. He put his A-graders in Tim Mavric, Steve Mannix and Tim Mannix on the ball, Nick Connellan went from full back to full forward, Kremmer was moved out to centre half forward and Brent Bowden was moved to centre half back. “Well, in those situations, you’re either a genius or a mug,” Shannon said. “On reflection, all of those moves paid off for us. However, if we lost, people would have been asking why I did it. “They seemed like logical moves to make, given we had some blokes carrying gastro into the game and the likes of Johnson and Nathan Dunn were injured.

“It all happened for us in 10 minutes of footy. “An early goal to Connellan gave us the hope and then I think things really changed when Mavric gave Mark Tyrell a 10-metre start and chased him down on the wing. “The boys lifted, the crowd got excited and we dominated the remainder of the game. “It was a memorable victory and a great week of celebrations, but now it’s all about 2014. It will be interesting to see what the fallout of the loss will be at Bonbeach. The Sharks had defeat snatched from the jaws of victory and there would have been plenty of soul searching through the week. The finger has been unfairly pointed directly at the coach Steve Capp, who some believe allowed his side to be overrun. The fact is that Capp had good reason to believe in his team’s structures – they had, after all, won 10 in a row. They had also run over many teams in 2013. Momentum is hard to get back once a side and the crowd is up and about. Halfway through the last quarter, the Sharks were still four goals in front. The club as a whole should be hurting after the Grand Final loss, not out looking for a scapegoat. The big talk if the Sharks won the Grand Final was that the likes of Ricky Ferraro and Shane McDonald would chase the big money that has been offered to them over the years. It now appears they may stay to see if they can achieve the ultimate success with their home club.

Third placed Frankston YCW is well down the path of interviewing coaches. Two-time premiership coach Gavin Artico was seen arriving at the club’s decision makers through the week. Whilst there is plenty of speculation about the likes of Byron and Anthony Barry, the strong word is that they are not leaving YCW. That goes for the likes of Kyle Hutchison also, who is rumoured to be on the shopping list of many clubs. The same can’t be said though of forwards David Bodley and Michael Chaplin, along with a couple of younger players like Rhys Johnson, who are in talks with opposition clubs already. Mt Eliza will be looking to add some depth to their team in the off-season, as well as building up a couple of their good Under 18s. There are plenty of them. The future is bright at the Redlegs for a few more years to come and like Edi-Asp, they just need a couple of structural players to shore them up. They lost three of the game’s best last season in Michael Lourey, Sam Lloyd and Scott Simpson. Put them back in and they will challenge for the title again. Mornington needs to add some more experience and harder bodies to its list if it is to move up the ladder next season. Self-belief is something that has been missing for the Dogs for the past six years but they got this back in 2013 and with some hard work in the offseason, they will be there or thereabouts again. Pines missed out on finals by a whisker and had a very good season.

Off-field the club is in good shape and on-field, they are extremely well coached by Steve Ryan. Recruiting hasn’t been easy for the Pythons over the years but they’ll need to improve this to make a move next season. Karingal is at a crossroads. Coach Brendan Dunne has taken the job at Hastings and a number of their stars are already fielding calls from opposition clubs. These names include Steve Charalambous, Cal Dixon, Chris Hay, David Hirst and Jarrod Eames. Quite simply, with no juniors coming through, the Bulls cannot afford to lose even one player. Hirst has applied for the Karingal coaching job and many believe that if he does not get it, he’ll take the Somerville coaching role in Nepean League. Langwarrin can expect to be the big movers in 2014. The Kangas’ second half to the 2013 season was very good. They will appoint a new senior coach within the week. They plan to move heaven and earth to get back a number of the juniors that it lost two seasons ago. Seaford is also looking for a new coach. The Tigers had very strong reserves (with an average age of 22) and their Under 18s finished on top of the ladder. A good coach will see them climb up the ladder again. Braeden Irving is tipped to join his brothers at the Dolphins. Chelsea is looking for a coach. The big word already at the Gulls is that former Melbourne and Brisbane player, Travis Johnstone, is joining the Gulls. Johnstone has also been linked to Bonbeach.

Nepean League 2013 round-up: Sorrento sacks coach of the year

High flyers: Sorrento out-gunned Hastings in July. Picture: Andrew Hurst.

In a spin: Pearcedale accounted for Tyabb by 41 points in May. Picture: Doug Farr

By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly IT is always interesting to sit back and watch the fall-out of a Grand Final loss. After going through the season undefeated, Sorrento was smashed in the Grand Final by a side (Dromana) that was never going to achieve anything less than winning the flag in 2013. Sorrento played its grand final against Rosebud in the preliminary the week before and had no gas left in the tank. Was this the fault of the coach? Apparently so, because the Sorrento Football Club called Nepean Team of the Year coach Nick Claringbold on Tuesday night and told him his services were no longer required. Claringbold is the coach who was behind the moves that saw Sorrento win the flag last season, whilst being the off-field man in charge when Troy Schwarze was ‘officially’ the coach. Sorrento’s reason for sacking Claringbold? “We want to move forward next season with a playing coach.” Now, we told our readers a month ago that Sorrento was looking at midfielder Leigh Treeby to take the reins next season. However, despite all the speculation, which was gained more traction two weeks ago, Claringbold was never spoken to by the club. Not once was he asked to come in and stake his claim for the job. Despite the media reports, never was he called to be told the “club was going through a process”. Instead, Claringbold had to be given filtered information from friends at the club to understand what was going on. This is extremely poor management from a club that consistently pounds its chest about how well it does things. Regardless, Claringbold was typically professional when he spoke with us after his sacking. “I’m obviously very disappointed but the club wanted to move in a certain direction,” Claringbold said. “They want a playing coach and unfortunately I’m not young enough to play anymore,” he joked. Asked how he felt about the media knowing more about what was going

on than him, again he replied with: “that was very disappointing also”. There’s a lot of irony in football and upon hearing of Claringbold’s sacking, premiers Dromana were quickly on the telephone. Claringbold met with the Tigers last Friday and is believed to be the front runner for the job, vacated by Gavin Artico. Artico said Claringbold was an outstanding coach and would be the ideal person to take over at Tigerland. Claringbold confirmed he was “catching up for a coffee” with the Tigers and showed genuine interest in the role. “I certainly want to continue coaching,” Claringbold said. On Sorrento, it is believed that Troy Schwarze has also thrown his hat into the ring for their vacant coaching position. Treeby is in Bali on holidays. Also, there was big rumour that two of their high profile players got into a scuffle at a club function in the past week. Meanwhile, Leigh Poholke and James Hallahan are heading interstate to play together. At Dromana, it appears the likes of Ryan Slocombe and Rikki Johnson will go around again, which is great news for the new coach. However, brothers Jay and Matt Neratzoglou may be on the move after Matt was left out of the premiership side. Third placed Rosebud was a heartbeat away from a grand final berth this season and only needs a few top-ups to take it to the next level in 2014. Matthew Payne is expected to head back to Queensland, which would be a massive loss for the club. Frankston Bombers finished the season in horrible form and need to have a big pre-season to progress next season. Discipline was a massive issue with the club in the second half of the season. Club legends Nathan and Ryan Lonie, Brian O’Carroll and Haydn Moore have all retired. These four were in the best six players at the club this season. Jay Page is a star but there’s no guarantees he’ll stay with the Bombers either. Pearcedale is already in negotiation

with some players and is confident that it will not lose anyone off the list that finished fourth after the home and away season. There was some talk about Travis Sauer retiring. Ben Cadd has not yet been reappointed but it is expected to be a formality. Crib Point is without a coach after Dave Lawson left the top chair. The Magpies have been so close in the past couple of seasons but couldn’t take the next step. Hopefully the players stick together and they can appoint a playing coach in the coming weeks. There’s a bit happening at Hastings. Former Karingal coach Brendan Dunne is an outstanding leader and will bring plenty to the table. However, it appears he’s going to have a tough time keeping Tony Mirabella, Andy Kiely and Daniel Wischart, while club legend Jason Kestle is also rumoured to be on the move. Somerville offers the plum coaching job in Nepean League. The Eagles were very competitive this season and just need some experience to go with the abundance of junior talent. Its Under 18s won the flag. Former coach Leigh Stewart, who sits on 299 games, is believed to be happy staying in the Eagles’ nest. One wonders whether Crib Point has given him a call? Don’t expect to see Rye in the bottom half of the draw next season. The Demons are on a recruiting drive and its list is said to be keen to have a big pre-season. 2012 league goal kicking machine Justin Van Unen is said to be the number one target for the Demons. Red Hill will also be a big mover in 2014. Three-time premiership coach Tony Blackford is now at the helm and Andrew Brady is his right hand man. Together, they have a little black book with plenty of footy numbers and Blackford has already spoken to more than 30 possible recruits. Tyabb has appointed Ray Hallal as senior coach and according to the club, they are very financial and in a position to recruit. Time will tell. Devon Meadows was the underachiever of the league last season but is expected to recruit well in the offseason and make its way up the ladder in 2014.

Losers and winners: Crib Point (above left) went down to Devon Meadows in July and fell out of contention to play finals while Dromana (above right) beat Sorrento in the Grand Final to become Nepean League 2013 premiers. Pictures: Andrew Hurst
