Let’s get together TAHLIA James, 9, hoed into a sizzled sausage supplied by the Rotary Club of Hastings Western Port during the family fun day at Hastings Westpark Primary School last Friday. Even though it rained during the first half of the event, spirits were undamped. When the sun reappeared, Let’s Get Together activities such as jumping castle, facepainting and storytelling were enjoyed with enthusiasm.

Three new councillors By Mike Hast MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has three new councillors after Saturday’s election – David Garnock, Hugh Fraser and Andrew Dixon. Hastings-based Cerberus Ward was

won by David Garnock. He replaced Reade Smith who did not stand. Lynn Bowden was returned in Watson Ward in the north of the Western Port side of the peninsula and outgoing mayor Frank Martin, facing the elec-

tors for the first time, won Red Hill Ward. On the Port Phillip side of the peninsula, Tim Rodgers of Sorrento was returned and was joined by new councillor Hugh Fraser of Rye in the new

multi-councillor ward of Nepean, which replaced Nepean and Rye wards. Mr Fraser, a Melbourne barrister, replaced veteran councillor Bill Goodrem. In Seawinds Ward, the amalgama-

Alarm over slain dog By Keith Platt TOP chef Max Paganoni is heartbroken. While he was making sure customers left his restaurant at Red Hill Estate satisfied with their meals, something dark and sinister was happening just kilometres away at his home. Each day when Mr Paganoni leaves the house, he first lets out his miniature daschund dogs, Levi and Zucker. The dogs are in at night, but enjoy time together in the garden by day. On Sunday, four-year-old Levi was shot dead. Her still-warm body was found by a shocked Mr Paganoni at about 8pm. “I had just come home from the restaurant and went outside to feed the dogs when I found her,” Mr Paganoni said on Monday. “She was still warm, so I think she was probably shot about 7 o’clock.” Mr Paganoni, who was raised on a farm, said he was concerned that “someone is walking around here with a gun and this is a residential area” . He said there was no exit wound and believes the weapon might have been a slug gun, or air rifle, rather than a firearm. As for Zucker, he appeared to be wondering why his mate was not getting up. “I called the police straight away and a vet will look at Levi to see what killed him,” Mr Paganoni said. Constable Kerry Thomson of Rosebud police said one of Mr Paganoni’s neighbours had reported hearing “something unusual” on Sunday night. She said detectives would probably be investigating the case once the autopsy results identified what kind of weapon was used to kill Levi.

Picture prizes YOUNG photographers are being urged to enter their best shots of the Mornington Peninsula’s “beaches, boats and bays” in a competition being run by the Rotary Club of Sorrento. The competition has three age categories – 5-9, 10-14 and 15-18 – and, according to a club spokeswomen, is designed “to give children an opportunity to showcase their skills as well as have the parents involved and raise the profile of Rotary in the community”. Entries will be judged by photographer for The News, Yanni. An encouragement award will also be presented in conjunction with the club’s 29th annual art show being held at Sorrento Community Centre 11-19 January. Prints (A4 size preferred, $5 an entry) can be dropped off by 9 December to: Sorrento Community Centre, Marlene Miller Antiques or Travelscene in Sorrento; IGA supermarket, Blairgowrie; Squeekie Clean, Rye; Office Choice, Rosebud; Wardrobe, Mornington; Promenade, Flinders; and Hastings Newsagency, Hastings.

Backyard horror: Max Paganoni cuddles his remaining miniature daschund, Zucker, while telling the RSPCA’s Maree Crabtree about finding his other dog, Levi, dead from a gunshot. Picture: Yanni

On show: Faye Doherty, Rosslyn Warman and Janette MacGregor with some of the works they will show in a combined exhibition.

Three artists show shades of difference THREE artists who met at Chisholm Frankston while doing visual art and illustration courses will show their work at Oak Hill Gallery in November. Faye Doherty of Hastings, Rosslyn Warman of St Andrews Beach and Janette MacGregor of Rosebud are exhibiting paintings, prints and sculpture. Ms MacGregor described herself as “originally a hobby potter” but, after attending Chisholm, thought about art in a different way, seeing colour all around her. She promotes her paintings, which have a strong environmental message, as “usual subjects – unusual results”.

Ms Doherty expresses her love of nature painting in oils, watercolour, acrylic and pastel. She also enjoys the process of printmaking, working mainly with linocuts, woodcuts, monoprints, collographs and drypoints. Her work has moved from mainly traditional works to more contemporary, expressionistic styles, experimenting with techniques, textures and mediums. Ms Warman draws ideas from her travels around Australia. She is noted for “Rozzies Ozzies” – emus and camels in hats, and gentlemen warming themselves in the morning sun.

The three – two Virgos and one Libran – are great friends, enjoying sharing their love of art. Ms Warman jokes they represent perfection, prolificness and “still puddling” (defying the rule of no self-deprecation). Each has exhibited widely individually and in Rotary shows, winning numerous awards. This is their first outing together. “Shades of Difference, an exhibition of diverse contemporary work by the local artists” will be at Oak Hill Gallery, Mornington-Tyabb Rd, Mornington, 11-4pm (except Mondays) 4-28 November.

Govt takes flight in push for southeast airport By Mike Hast THE state government’s blueprint for the future growth of Melbourne includes a proposal for an airport in the southeast, with Tooradin listed as an option. Planning Minister Matthew Guy released the Metropolitan Planning Strategy discussion paper on Friday. It stated the southeast region had a population larger than Adelaide, but did not have a commercial airport. “Access to Melbourne Airport from the east and southeast is becoming increasingly difficult due to congestion on the M1 corridor, and a lack of alternative routes,” the paper stated. “An airport to the southeast of Melbourne would serve one-third of Victoria’s population, including the 300,000 residents of Gippsland. Major international and domestic tourist attractions such as Phillip Island and the Mornington Peninsula are nearby.” The peninsula’s population is about 150,000. The discussion paper stated a southeast airport “would have the benefit of good road connections and the potential of rail access”. The region would “benefit from the improved international tourism and trade connections that would come from the development of a new airport. The employment benefit to the

Matthew Guy

region might also be significant”. The notion of a southeast airport is not new. In the 1960s, when the Bolte Liberal government earmarked Western Port as the site for heavy industry and a deep-water port, a proposal was floated to establish an airport on French Island. In the 1980s it was suggested an airport by built on Manks Rd at Dalmore, north of Tooradin. In January, the Victorian Employers’ Chamber of Commerce and Industry proposed a third airport at Tooradin, Tyabb or South Gippsland. VECCI chief executive Mark Stone, formerly head of Parks Victoria, said a third airport was needed to cope with growing demand, traffic congestion, and expansion of the Port of Hastings.

Melbourne Airport at Tullamarine would stay the main airport, and Avalon near Geelong would service the western part of greater Melbourne, he said. Avalon was given a new lease by the federal government in early October and upgraded to full international airport status. Work on a new terminal is expected to start soon and the Baillieu government is lobbying the federal government for money for a rail link. In January, Mr Stone’s suggestion of an airport at Tyabb was given short shrift by Peninsula Aero Club, which owns the airfield, grandly named “Mornington Peninsula Airport at Tyabb”. PAC president Peter Bernardi said the club had not been consulted by VECCI, did not have enough land to expand and was not interested in becoming an airport. Tyabb’s unsuitablity as an airport was confirmed by the Department of Civil Aviation in 1982 and by CASA in 2008. Mr Bernardi said the idea of an airport in the Tooradin area made more sense. “The air force had a satellite field near Koo Wee Rup during the Second World War and you can still see the landing strip from the air.” Several problems would have to be overcome to build an airport at Tooradin airfield.

The existing 1000-metre single runway would have to be extended by at least 500 metres to handle 300-seat domestic planes, and extended further to take international planes. The runway runs northeast–southwest, and the historic property Harewood is on the eastern side. It is a National Estate-listed property with its 1871 house in remarkable condition. On the western side are private properties. On the southern side is Western Port and a rural conservation zone with protected mangroves. To the north is the South Gippsland Highway. There is simply no room for a north– south runway. A more likely location for an airport is in the hinterland between Tooradin and Dalmore, the site proposed almost 30 years ago. A second problem is the town is served by only one major road, the South Gippsland Highway, a four-lane arterial road with many uncontrolled crossings. A third problem is aircraft noise. Any state government that allowed flight paths over residential areas would be at risk of losing MPs and federal MPs could go in the backwash. Melbourne’s population is expected to reach 6.4 million by 2050, hence the government putting a southeast airport back on the agenda.

Warnings about identity fraud MORNINGTON Peninsula residents are being urged to take precautions to make sure they are not added to the list of victims of identity fraud. Statistics show 1.2 million Australians aged over 15 lost $1.4 billion through identity fraud in 2010-11. The principal lawyer at Peninsula Community Legal Centre, Victoria Mullings, says the impact of identity fraud cannot be understated. “Once identity fraud has occurred, it can be very difficult to prove that you are not responsible for incurring a debt,” Ms Mullings said. “We strongly recommend that measures be taken to prevent this by practising responsible personal security habits.” Examples of security measures included using locks on mail boxes, having security software, being cautious with personal and financial information and always asking to read the privacy policy of a business. “Be very conservative when posting personal information on social networking sites,” Ms Mullings said. “Victims of identity fraud may be eligible for a Commonwealth Victim Certificate that can help support a claim that they have been subject to personal fraud.” For details about victim certificates visit www.ag.gov.au and the Australian Federal Police website www.afp. gov.au Peninsula Community Legal Centre, 441 Nepean Highway, Frankston, has copies of the brochure Protecting Yourself Online.

Bathing box sells THE licence for a bathing box on Frankston beach built by the Rotary Club of Frankston Sunrise and Frankston Council has sold at auction for $115,000. The money will be split between the Frankston Charitable Fund and the Rotary club, although the split has not yet been decided. The fund gives grants to Frankston charities and the Rotary club’s recent work includes constructing a mobility garden at a rehabilitation hospital, a foreshore boardwalk and helping maintain historic Ballam Park Homestead.

Early warning ends worm harvest By Keith Platt SHIRE council officers last Thursday brought an enterprising extractive industry at Balnarring Beach to an abrupt halt. The first site to come to a standstill was the foreshore and later a small reserve at the corner of Campbell and Highview courts. Not known as a mining area, the two reserves were nevertheless giving up buckets of saleable items – earthworms. “It’s amazing how many worms there are in the ground, they were everywhere,” a resident who did not want to be identified told The News. “I’m sure removing this many worms from one spot can’t be good for the environment. “The people [collecting the worms] did not speak to anybody, so I can only guess they were selling them for worm farms or bait. They certainly looked to be well organised.” The worm miners were first spotted on the foreshore, inserting electrical probes powered by a small generator into the earth. Within minutes the ground was covered in wriggling worms, obviously coaxed into the daylight by the electrical charge. The foreshore ranger expressed his doubts about their rights to harvest worms on such a scale and the miners packed up their two vehicles and moved on – to the reserve on the outskirts of Balnarring Beach. Once again the ground was pegged out in strips and the electrical probes again inserted with the wriggling results again ready to be scooped into buckets.

Worms turn: Worms head to the surface after electrodes are planted in the ground at a reserve at Balnarring Beach. The harvest ended after the intervention of council local laws officers.

This time, alerted by the foreshore ranger, Mornington Peninsula Shire local laws officers attended and stopped the work. “Foreshore regulations and the shire

local laws apply and operations of this nature, if they are commercial, may require planning permission,” environment protection manager Claire Smith said.

“Penalties, both on-the-spot infringements or court action, can result depending on the nature of the incident or activity. In this instance the matter is considered resolved.”

temporary curriculum and attract the best teachers to provide the best results, then excellent teaching must be supported by infrastructure that meets its needs.” Schools needed more permanent classrooms, not portables. An example was Mornington Secondary College, which would have 12 classes of Year 7s next year and had recently had two portable classrooms delivered. “Mornington has the most land and would be the logical place to build permanent classrooms,” she said. Ms Fenselan said the Smarter Schools group was formed about four months ago and had been meeting in private homes. Members had met with peninsula MPs David Morris and Martin Dixon, who is the Education Minister, as well as senior departmental officers. It had been liaising with principals and teachers from the three secondary schools on the Port Phillip side of the peninsula and a lecturer from Monash University. Ms Fenselan is a secondary school teacher who trained at the University of Melbourne and has taught woodwork and metalwork at Melbourne Girls College in Richmond as well as at schools in Sydney and Shepparton. She has been president and on the board of the Technical Teachers Association of Victoria, and taught at Australian Catholic University for a year.

SMARTER Schools Peninsula held its first public event in mid-October, a talk by Chris Bonnor, co-author of What makes a good school? with Jane Caro. Mr Bonnor, an education writer and consultant, a former principal and Fellow of the Centre for Policy Development, talked about the themes of the book including:  Can we sustain a quality, diverse, inclusive and free public school system alongside schools that can pick and choose students and obligations? What are the educational and wider social consequences?  To what extent does choice of schools create advantages for some at the expense of opportunities for others? What must we do to sustain both choice and equity – where does the balance lie?  The hurdles facing a breakthrough are huge. If little or nothing is done, current inequities in student outcomes will only increase, along with all the personal, community and national consequences. We have an opportunity for reform, but the prospects for success can’t be taken for granted. Smarter Schools Peninsula has a website (smarterschools.weebly.com), Facebook page (search “Smarter Schools Peninsula”) and email address (smarterschools@ymail.com).

Call for change: Rachael Fenselan, with sons Leroy, 3, and Douglas, 5, is one of the parents calling on the state government to maintain the integrity of secondary schools on the Mornington Peninsula.

STOTTS LA

By Mike Hast A GROUP of peninsula parents has started lobbying the state government to improve public secondary schools in the region. The Smarter Schools Peninsula group is worried about the public school system not receiving sufficient resources as children move from primary to secondary level. A population boom on the peninsula combined with more families moving to the area is putting pressure on primary and secondary schools, the group says. A second cause for concern is the high number of parents losing faith in the public system and sending their children to private schools, putting added strain on family budgets with some schools costing up to $20,000 a year for fees alone. Smarter School spokeswoman Rachael Fenselan says the group was kicked off by Mt Martha parents concerned about there being no public secondary school in the rapidly growing town. “We’re not anti-private school, but there appears to be a certain amount of ‘status anxiety’ and aversion to sending children to public schools,” she said. A marker of this was 60 per cent of children in Mt Martha going to private schools after primary school – twice the state average, she said. “There are parents who are working long hours, renting not buying homes and making other sacrifices so they can send their kids to private school, fearing they will not get a good education at public schools.” Smarter Schools is 12 “committed parents who are lobbying the government for a review of schools, especially Dromana, Mornington and Mt Eliza secondary colleges”, which are on the more populous side of the peninsula, as well as Somerville secondary, Ms Fenselan said. “We hope to get support to establish an expert review panel comprising representatives from the schools, community and experts in education.” The review should consider funding and how “it can be done better”. The group thinks peninsula schools should be encouraged to work together more closely. An example was pooling resources to offer less popular subjects such as specialist maths and philosophy. “There might be five Year 12 philosophy students at Mt Eliza and five at Dromana, and there should be a way for them to do the subject. “Our children deserve the best education and reducing subject choices does not provide this.” Ms Fenselan said most of the population growth on the peninsula was occurring in Dromana, Mt Martha and Mornington. In the next 25 years at least 1974 more secondary students will attend schools on the peninsula. More than 1300 students will come from Mt Martha, Mornington, Safety Beach and Dromana. “The public school sector will need to adapt to cope. We know quality facilities are not enough to deliver quality education, but if the public school system is to continue to develop a con-

Hypnotic vision in magenta for last meeting Rosebud council chamber, 22 October 2012. Final meeting for the Class of 2008. Start: 4pm. Agenda: light. Surprises: one. FIRST sign that something unusual was to occur was the appearance of a dark-haired female vision wrapped in a filmy magenta cloak. She waited in the half-shadow at the back right-hand corner of the Besgrove St, Rosebud, council chamber during a presentation to Peninsula Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Information and Support Services. Then the music started â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sensual, exotic, Middle Eastern; hardly the sort of sound commonly heard in

a room more usually echoing to Cr Anne Shawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Part B suggestions and Cr David Gibbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expositions on substantive motions. Then, into the brightly lit semi-circle of space that separates the councillorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; desks from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;top tableâ&#x20AC;?, where sits shire CEO Michael Kennedy, his trusty governance sidekick Noel Buck and the mayor, undulated the hypnotic magenta-wrapped form, revealed as a most attractively shapely belly dancer, hips jingling with gold discs. The diaphanous cloak was dispensed with in a provocative swirl and the dancer began her performance before the galleryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s astonished and bemused gaze. Some were thunderstruck. Who was this woman? Why was she here? No mention of her on the agenda. No explanation of her presence before or after the performance. But, heck, what a talent.

Dr Kennedy, clearly a man accustomed to viewing sophisticated dance performance, leaned back in his chair, wearing a sophisticated half-smile and joined the rhythmic undulating, as did sustainable infrastructure director Alex Atkins Director who confined himself to an appreciative smile and fingertapping. Council Watch watched the councillors. Tim Rodgers, head down, was taking a close interest in the attachments to the agenda; Bev Colomb wore what might be described as a stony or stunned expression; Leigh Eustaceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visage clearly indicated he was an aficionado of the performing arts; Bill Goodrem and Lynn Bowden had their backs to your scribe so their expressions cannot be described. Little could be seen of Cr Reade Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reaction to this frivolity at his final council meeting. But as a former

Family First candidate, he was no doubt shocked by this sudden gyrating semi-nudity just centimetres from his desk. Graham Pittock, perhaps accustomed to lycra clad female forms at his Dromana squash courts and gym, took it in his amused stride, as did David Gibb, whose paddocks are full of shapely heifers. The chiselled profile of Antonella Celi gave little away; nor did her neighbour Anne Shaw. At the high table, outgoing mayor Frank Martin appeared to be enjoying the show, which went on, mysterious and unexplained, for perhaps five minutes. Those wishing to discover the precise length of the performance can time it on the recording of the meeting when it is posted on the shire website. Readers may like to use the music as a light accompaniment to romantic evenings.

In the public gallery, one elderly gentleman suddenly muttered â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to goâ&#x20AC;? as he rose swiftly and left the chamber soon after the dance started. One would have needed good reason to miss such a spectacular interlude in a shire meeting. Perhaps he had a dicky ticker or moral objections. Finally, and far too soon, the music, the jingling and the undulating ceased. The dark-haired beauty â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who, it is believed, serves alcoholic refreshments in a golf club bar in her day clothes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; took up her gauzy magenta raiment and swayed out the back door to polite applause. The agenda was resumed, and dealt with. The meeting was closed. The era of 11 councillors each in their own ward ended, not with a bang but with a whirl of wild erotic exotica, which had finally claimed the attention of the studious Tim Rodgers.

Cr Garnock, a Mt Eliza resident who told The News he would be moving to somewhere near his ward, won almost 50 per cent of first preference votes. Ms Roper received 28 per cent and Mr Antoine 22 per cent of first preference votes, so Mr Antoine was eliminated and his second preferences allocated, with 1337 votes going to Cr Garnock and 488 to Ms Roper, giving Cr Garnock 5427 (66 per cent) and Ms Roper 2824 (34 per cent). On the roll for Cerberus Ward were 12,391 voters with 8452 voting (68 per

cent of total) and 201 informal votes (not counted) for a total of 8251 formal votes. In Watson Ward based around Somerville, Lynn Bowden was returned, but only after a battle with Labor Party tyro Joshua Sinclair, a 20-year-old studying a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Laws at Monash. The former Peninsula School student and soccer umpire polled 27 per cent of first preference votes to Cr Bowdenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 39 per cent. After distribution of preferences

from Wayne Etcell and Ben Loois, Cr Bowden had 5051 votes (57 per cent) and Mr Sinclair 3752 (43 per cent). On the roll for Watson Ward were 12,636 voters with 9039 voting (71 per cent of total) and 236 informal votes (not counted) for a total of 8803 formal votes. In Red Hill Ward, outgoing mayor Frank Martin and former councillor Neale Adams had a good battle, with preferences from the third candidate, Rob Jones, determining the result. Cr Martin polled 3851 votes (46.3

per cent) and Mr Adams 3250 (39 per cent) with Mr Jones 1217 votes (14.7 per cent). Second preferences from Mr Jones flowed about 2:1 in favour of Cr Martin with final results being Martin 4658 (56 per cent) and Adams 3660 (44 per cent). On the roll for Red Hill Ward were 12,349 voters with 8516 voting (69 per cent of total) and 198 informal votes (not counted) for a total of 8318 formal votes. ď Ž See â&#x20AC;&#x153;How two councillors lost their seatsâ&#x20AC;? on Page 9.

In Briars Ward, the amalgamation of Balcombe (Mt Martha), Mornington and Mt Eliza wards, Mt Elizaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardworking councillor Leigh Eustace was surprisingly ousted, replaced by a 25-year-old university student, Andrew Dixon. Bev Colomb of Mornington and Anne Shaw of Mt Martha were returned. David Garnock had a resounding victory in Cerberus Ward over Kate Roper and John Antoine.

Western Port News 30 October 2012


How two councillors lost their seats COMMENT By Roger Lambert* MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council election produced some surprises and three new councillors on Saturday. On the Western Port and Bass Strait side of the peninsula, Lynn Bowden was returned in Watson Ward and Frank Martin in Red Hill Ward with David Garnock winning Cerberus Ward, appropriate perhaps for a former commanding officer of HMAS Cerberus at Crib Point. The three multi-councillor wards on the Port Phillip side produced the most interesting results. Seawinds Ward has, by a very narrow margin, chosen to stay with the existing three councillors – Antonella Celi, David Gibb and Graham Pittock. Nowhere has the surprise been greater than in Briars Ward, covering Mt Eliza, Mornington and Mt Martha. The knowledgeable, industrious and energetic Mt Eliza councillor Leigh Eustace has been replaced by a young man about to complete his university education, Andrew Dixon. This seems a very poor reward for Leigh Eustace who had made quite an impact on the council and the preservation of Mt Eliza’s neighbourhood character as well as enhancing its facilities, particularly for the young. Bev Colomb and Anne Shaw were returned after sharply contrasting campaign styles. Cr Colomb maintained a low, but ever-present profile, while Cr Shaw’s posters were seen in many unusual places. Analysis of the Briars Ward result

shows Crs Colomb and Shaw enjoyed a very high primary vote, some 2000 to 2500 higher than Eustace, with candidates Andrew Dixon and Roger Lambert only 500 votes behind Eustace. Distribution of preferences from some of the lesser-known candidates soon had Dixon ahead of Lambert. This was a senate-style election; how many voters knew that? Distribution of preferences from John Woodman, the managing director of Watsons, the Mornington-based developers’ consultancy, went mainly to Cr Shaw, guaranteeing her election. Cr Shaw’s excess votes went overwhelmingly to Dixon by which he was then 1500 votes ahead of Lambert, and 1000 votes ahead of Eustace. Further distribution of preferences

brought Lambert to within 700 votes of Dixon, but this was the closest he reached. Cr Colomb by this stage was within 200 votes of being re-elected, which she duly was. Distribution of Cr Colomb’s excess votes was evenly split between Eustace and Dixon, with Lambert still heading Eustace by about 400 votes. The final preference distribution was from Eustace, which went to Dixon by a ratio of 5:1 over Lambert, and so Andrew Dixon was elected. Under the new electoral system, Lambert would become the replacement of any Briars Ward councillor if any left office. In Seawinds Ward, covering Dromana, McCrae, Rosebud, Rosebud West and part of Tootgarook, voters decided

to retain their existing councillors. By the time of the next election in 2016, Cr Gibb will have been a councillor for almost 20 years. Cr Celi managed to just hang on to her seat despite at one stage being only 100 votes ahead of the extrovert “Big Joe” Lenzo, who is committed to reforming the council. Big Joe should have bought more doughnuts for the elderly. Cr Gibb clearly outpolled all his rivals on primary votes with Crs Pittock and Celi, and, surprisingly, Lenzo, all being about 1500 votes behind him. Perhaps a further surprise was the low vote for Ray Gibb. Obviously the voters knew their Ray from their David. It took the elimination of nine of the 14 candidates before Cr Pittock was

re-elected; overtaking Cr Gibb whose cumulative votes languished. Cr Pittock’s excess votes were evenly split between Cr Celi and Joe Lenzo. Only the elimination of Peter Holloway, the 11th of 14 candidates, enabled Cr Gibb to eventually be reelected with Holloway’s preferences favouring him over Cr Celi and Joe Lenzo by a ratio of 4:1. Cr Gibb’s preferences flowed to his protégée Cr Celi on a 3:1 ratio, thus ensuring her re-election. Nepean Ward, now covering the southern tip of the peninsula, where in some parts there are more houses than voters, seemingly was in two minds. It returned to the fold the muchtravelled Cr Rodgers while retiring the veteran, and nowadays venerable, Bill Goodrem. All the candidates save one polled well with Cr Rodgers well in front, followed by barrister Hugh Fraser. It took the elimination of five of the eight candidates for Cr Rodgers to be re-elected. It was only Cr Rodgers’ excess votes that saw Hugh Fraser elected ahead of Heidi Duell. How the new council will function remains to be seen. The first council meeting will occur on 21 November, when the new mayor will be elected. * Roger Lambert was a candidate in Briars Ward and finished fourth. A peninsula resident for 30 years, he is a retired business analyst and a former member of the shire’s audit committee.

Flower power: Marion Trevellyan and sections of her garden Girrahween at Red Hill, one of three peninsula open gardens opening on Saturday and Sunday 10 and 11 November. Pictures: Yanni

Labours of blooming love THREE spectacular gardens in the peninsula hinterland are open the weekend after next – Point Leo Farm, Girrahween in Red Hill and Akenfield in Main Ridge. The trio are part of the Open Garden Scheme’s peninsula weekend. Girrahween (“Place of flowers”) at 138 Arthurs Seat Rd, Red Hill, is the labour of love of Marion Trevellyan and David Harrison. The property was once an apple orchard but when the couple bought it in 1992 no apples remained and it was used for grazing and for “growing blackberries”. Now the organic garden has a 20-year old orchard, a newer mixed orchard with olives, apples, quinces and nectarines as well as nut and plum trees, shrubs and trees underplanted with perfumed herbs, a vegetable garden where roses, herbs and flowering plants co-exist, a sculptured area among several silver birch and two beautiful Euc. Citriodora, a casuarina grove, exotic and indigenous trees, a pond bordered by a white garden, a citrus walk and more. Point Leo Farm at 3815 Frankston-Flinders Rd, Shoreham, is the work of owners George and Jill Pappas, and their gardener John Ryder. Originally a sheep farm, the garden was established 60 years ago by the previous owners, whose large trees including polars, cypress, cedar and oaks remain.

Features include a 300-metre driveway lined with European and Australian trees as well as agapanthus and red hot pokers, and spring displays of daffodils, and a circle with a young oak tree surrounded by other trees and hedged by hebe, iceberg roses, hydrangeas, abelia and Leyland cypress. A seaside garden contains native shrubs and trees. There is an avenue of immature Chinese elms. The pond, once a dam, is native shrubs and trees. The orchard has been planted in two stages and has almonds, plums, apples, a pear, fig, an apricot, hazelnuts, plums, nectarine and peach trees, a medlar, quince and persimmon. Akenfield at 371 Barkers Rd, Main Ridge, is the work of Robin Hunt. Established trees are the framework for this well-planned 1.2-hectare garden that descends to Main Creek in a series of lawn terraces defined and linked by walks, hedges and stone steps. It has oaks, ancient camellias, maples, birches, beeches and a crab-apple walk. There are also knot gardens and spring bulbs as well as a vegetable garden. The three gardens are open from 10am4.30pm. Entry is $8 with proceeds going to the Open Garden scheme, community groups and charities. Western Port News 30 October 2012

NEWS DESK

Days of flying saucepans long gone By Cameron McCullough GREG Brown was Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most famous chef during the 1990s. Browns Restaurant was the place to be seen, frequented by the rich and famous. There were awards and accolades such as chef of the year and restaurant of the year. He was a bestselling author, caterer to the stars, patron of awards and designer of airline menus. He had it all. Brown learnt his trade in Europe between 1984 and 1987 under the wing of some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest chefs such as Raymond Blanc at the Manoir aux Quatre Saisons and Michel Roux at the Waterside Inn. He studied at Ecole Lenotre in Versailles, famed for its patisserie and boulangerie (bakery). In 1987 he returned to Melbourne full of passion, knowledge and ambition. He started Paysan and rapidly became Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first celebrity chef of the modern era, although he was not as tame as todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raft of made-for-television versions. They say his quest for perfection had a body count. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tales abound of rages and flying saucepans, and quivering apprentices weeping into their sauce bordelaise,â&#x20AC;? stated one newspaper report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A mad chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ego, and volatile personality,â&#x20AC;? claimed another. Heady days were lived at a frenetic pace. During a medical check-up, a doctor asked him how many coffees he drank in a day. Unsure of the answer, Brown was asked by the doctor to have a sous chef follow him for a day to count his intake. It was a staggering 45 cups. He was a fearsome man; a perfectionist with, it was said, appalling kitchen manners. There were tales of infamous stoushes with food critics who dared question his techniques. He was the enfant terrible of Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant scene. Now meet Greg Brown in 2012. He sits in a cafe in Hastings. It could be one of a number of cafes. He does the rounds. If you are unsure where to find him, just look for Basia the basset hound out the front, his loyal companion. Always patiently waiting for her master. Brown is neither fearsome nor wild. His manners are impeccable. He is quiet and somewhat withdrawn. He sips his coffee and reads or writes. He looks down more often than up. On occasion, though, he is willing to engage an attentive ear and tell his story â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a story of riches to rags; of battles both personal and financial; of a slide from the heady heights toward sickness and a new battle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the battle to

A man and his best friend: While Greg drinks coffee inside a cafe in Hastings, Basia waits patiently outside.

save his own life. By his own admission, Greg Brown was and still is a wonderful chef, but a questionable businessman. His food empires could best be described as rollercoasters. Highs and crashing lows saw him forced to reinvent and relaunch a new business in the late 1990s, Browns Bakery and Patisserie,

A part explanation for the collapse had been revealed by a simple scan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a scarring of tissue along the covering of the nerve cells was affecting signals to the brain, commonly referred to as MS. As a result of his illness and financial collapse, Brown went from being a connoisseur of French antiques to

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lost my wife. I lost my children. I lost my business. I lost my house. Hang on a minute, I did gain something â&#x20AC;&#x201C; multiple sclerosis.â&#x20AC;? a string of bakeries and stores. Then, in 2002, it all came crashing down again â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his $7 million business collapsed. Brown recalls how he lost everything: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lost my wife. I lost my children. I lost my business. I lost my house. Hang on a minute, I did gain something â&#x20AC;&#x201C; multiple sclerosis.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bum on the streets of Sydney with only my dog for companyâ&#x20AC;?. Eventually he moved to Canberra where he continued treatment for the MS. He participated in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;longitudinalâ&#x20AC;? study at the Curtin Clinic, where the disease was stabilised. He moved to Hastings to live on his sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property.

Greg Brown is fast becoming known to residents, but few know about his past. Many a time it is Basia who breaks the ice with people and starts the â&#x20AC;&#x153;conversationâ&#x20AC;?; the droopy-eyed basset hound engages passersby and this starts a conversation between Brown and the dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s admirer. He has his admirers, a select few who know his story, but treat him at face value: Greg at the cafe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want people to know my story so they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I am just â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the bum in the coffee shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; they see every day,â&#x20AC;? he said. He is still working on food â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a website, All In Bread by Greg Brown, that offers ingredients and cooking techniques to make artisan breads without expensive equipment. It also offers five flavours of the Italian granita, a semi-frozen dessert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will be launching it soon, and am committed to getting the monkey off my back,â&#x20AC;? he said.

His biggest battle, though, is the one to save his life. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consumed with the need to cure a body in which is trapped a still-fertile mind. He researches and plans for an elusive cure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stem cell treatment is the cure. It can be done. It has been done. In my situation, it is the cost that is prohibitive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $75,000.â&#x20AC;? Can he do it? Looking at the history of Greg Brown, you see a man who has been knocked down over and over again; a man who has been on the canvas and written off by the referee many a time only to raise himself back up to go another round. Beaten down by his illness he may be, but the man is far from beaten by it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Determination and dogma have served me well. I have MS, it ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t got me.â&#x20AC;? Next time you see him, say hello. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d appreciate it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No more flying saucepans,â&#x20AC;? he promises.

FEATURE PROPERTY

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

Appeal of dual living runs deep IF you are looking for a rural setting that offers the diversity of two homes for the extended family, this property is a must-see. The one-hectare property has a picturesque ornamental dam as the centrepiece and the areas around both homes are well maintained. Both residences have their own driveways branching off from the main entrance. The larger, main home is a masterclass in superb country living. Built of attractive brick, it has a full-length verandah and a feature portico covering the front door. An impressive triple garage under the roof line is in the south wing. A large kitchen has striking blackwood timber cupboards and stainless-steel appliances include a wall oven and double-drawer dishwasher. Through double glass doors, the spacious living room opens into the family and dining area. Three of the four bedrooms have built-in robes and the incredible master bedroom suite has a renovated ensuite and a walk-in robe. Entertaining will be a joy in the resort-style â&#x20AC;&#x153;outdoor roomâ&#x20AC;? with its hardwood decking and cafe-style tinted blinds. There is an impressive list of features here with ceiling fans, ducted heating, a built-in fridge, a barbecue and preparation area. Recently built and council-approved, the second dwelling has its own distinct character, opting for a more traditional timber look. The verandahs that run around all sides are a delight. There are two bedrooms and a study, plus dual-entry bathroom and an equally fine blackwood timber kitchen. In the open-plan living area is air-conditioning and a wood heater. The entire property has been completed to the highest standard; you would be proud to call either home your own. A massive work shed and surrounding gravel yard add another dimension to this outstanding small acreage property.

Once upon a time LIKE a storybook cottage, this delightful home is surrounded by lovely gardens and is enhanced by quaint character features such as bay windows and soft pastel exterior. There is a great sense of space that is heightened by the interesting architecture. Warm, rich timber floors feature in most living areas and bedrooms, and in the gleaming kitchen are stainless-steel appliances including a dishwasher. The main open-plan living and dining area has a soaring, high-pitched ceiling with exposed beams and a skylight. Every part of the 700-square metre block seems to have been utilised. In addition to the lush gardens at the front is a well-established vegetable garden at the back. Outbuildings include a 200-square metre workshop.

BUSINESS FEATURE

Frankston company out to ‘crush’ the US FRANKSTON-based Bin Buddie Company has developed, registered and patented a new product called Garden Bin Buddie. The company says it was formed to manufacture and market an innovative and inexpensive garden and household tool in Australia, with the objective of tackling the massive United States market. It has a design patent pending, has applied for a trademark in the US and has had interest from a number of American manufacturing companies as well as from one of the nation’s leading hardware retailers. Garden Bin Buddie was created to assist homeowners to safely and easily compress the contents of garden wheelie bin by up to 70 per cent, the company states. “No more cuts and scratches from manually trying to crush the garden and grass clippings, and no more danger of falling while jumping in it to try and create more space in an overflowing wheelie bin. “People would be surprised at the number of householders who undertake this practice so they can get more of their garden rubbish collected each fortnight,” said Jimmy Rylands, owner of Nu Age Tube Bending, which manufactures Garden Bin Buddie for the company. “It ends in many broken bones and bruises, without even counting the serious cuts, scratches and infections that are often sustained by handling the sharp sticks, thorns and prickles in the garden waste.” Mr Rylands said Garden Bin Buddie would work effectively on any wheelie bin so is useful in compacting general rubbish and recycled refuse bins as well, but it is on garden waste where it is really necessary. “The garden bin is never big enough for the cuttings, clippings, fallen leaves and broken branches found even in smaller gardens,” he said. “Garden Bin Buddie will allow the avid gardener to get so much more in their bin without causing it to become stuck. In two years of extensive testing on all types of waste bins, no bin

compacted with a Garden Bin Buddie, either on garden or household waste, has ever failed to empty under normal collection conditions.” Mr Rylands said this is due to the unique tamper plate and lever design of Garden Bin Buddie, which causes the contents to be “pulled away” from the bin walls, while also easily breaking the sharp sticks and branches that are the main offenders in causing the rubbish to stay stuck in the bin during pickups. The product isn’t available in stores yet, but is being offered to consumers via the internet or telephone ordering, with an offer of free home delivery in the Melbourne and Mornington Peninsula areas. “At $49.95 including GST it is a robust, superbly designed, superbly manufactured product with a three-year guarantee.” Bin Buddie can be contacted on the internet at www.binbuddie.com or by phoning or faxing 9783 6422.

Mum’s message goes viral LAUREN Ostrowski Fenton – life coach, personal trainer and single mother of four – was recently granted prestigious “YouTube Partner” status on YouTube for her popular videos on personal development, meditation and healthy living. Lauren’s videos have broken the 100,000 hits mark, putting her videos in the top eight per cent of popularity of YouTube internationally. “I started off with the idea that I wanted to change people’s lives through video meditation, exercise and wellbeing. One day one of my videos went viral with 40,000 hits and then another and another,” she said. “I think what people like is that I am a normal person; a single mother of four and that I am older. I think because I am just an ordinary

person people identify with me and realise that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. Just have a go.” Lauren is soon to turn 48 and has been personal trainer and life coach for 30 years but it has only been with the YouTube videos that she has become internationally recognised. “I love waking up in the morning and reading all the lovely letters I receive from people around the world writing about their exercise and wellbeing needs.” Lauren has found that when a person combines careful goal-setting with meditation and weight-bearing exercise, they have the perfect recipe for success not only in fitness but also in life.

My life as a tyrannical older brother By Stuart McCullough THE worm has officially turned. For safety’s sake, it has used its indicator and checked its mirrors before doing so, but there can be no doubt. From this moment on everything is different. Assumptions that have set like concrete over the past four decades now count for nothing. It is officially year zero. That’s because my brother, Cam, turns forty this week. Although many families would celebrate this milestone with cake and some kind of present, I choose to recognise it in an altogether different fashion. Forget signing a card. Or even buying a present. This year, my brother’s birthday is about one simple thing: sweet, sweet revenge. That may sound a little ungenerous, if not downright rude. But this is no mere random attack on a sibling but, instead, a universal karmic alignment of a far greater magnitude. For as long as I can remember, my position as the eldest child in our family has been unassailable for three hundred and sixty one days out of every year. I enjoyed all the perks of office – the right to travel in the front seat on the way home from school, the right to administer a ‘pinch and a punch’ on the first day of every month and the right to have possession of the television remote control. But for four, gruesome days a year, this splendid existence would come under threat. The reason for this rather major disturbance in the Force is simple – each year my brother and I are the same age for four days. To say we fought like cats and dogs is possibly, of itself,

an act of animal cruelty. Determined to make as much hay as four days of sunshine would reasonably allow, my brother took every available opportunity to remind me that we were now the same age and I was no longer the boss of him. My attempts to point out that I had a three hundred and sixty one day lead over him were to no effect. He was entirely unmoved and took possession of the remote control to reinforce the point. Suddenly

my big brother powers were rendered completely useless. It was like forcing Superman to strap on a pair of Kryptonite underpants. He did not so much challenge my authority as he did my entire reason for existence. At the time, it felt like a massive injustice – the kind that deserves if not a pre-emptive military strike then the strictest of sanctions. But in the years since, I have taken time to reflect and, I’ll admit, I now see things differently.

In retrospect, it is little wonder that Cameron took every chance he could – no matter how fleeting – to cast off the chains of my oppressive reign of terror. Because it is true to say that in those years I was not just an older brother. I was a despot. There are many different kinds of older brothers. There are those who are simply disinterested and treat younger members of the family as though they don’t exist. That was never really an option for me. Our geographical isolation meant I was unable to traipse off to the local shopping centre to hang out with a bunch of like-minded malingering youths. Even getting to the nearest milk bar required an overnight hike. Like it or not, we were stuck with each other. It’s little wonder that we went a little stir crazy from time to time. Some older brothers trade in violence and beat their siblings into submission. Not me. My preferred theatre for sibling warfare was the mind. It was there that I acted out my treacherous schemes and plots. To think of it now makes me cringe with embarrassment. Indeed, the list of cruel and unusual taunts I directed at my various brothers and sisters is simply far too appalling to publish here. It is enough to say that I once enraged my brother so much that he knocked a hole in my door. A brown patch of Selley’s disturbingly named ‘Spakfiller’ on an otherwise white door would continue as a reminder in years to come of my ability to be awful. Once, I emptied my money box onto the top of the Coonara heater

and invited one of my brothers to help himself. For those of you unfamiliar with it, the Coonara wood-fire heater is a large black metal box that radiates heat. It is so hot to the touch that you generally place a protective grill at the front to prevent the unfamiliar from losing a layer of skin. Naturally, coins soak up heat like a metal sponge and my brother’s enthusiasm for collecting abandoned coinage was suddenly balanced by a burning sensation. It is often said that itchy palms mean that you’re about come into some money. Burning palms, however, means that you will shortly require some kind of medical treatment. No wonder my brother thought he should rise up against me by claiming the mantle of ‘eldest child’. As richly as I deserved it, I can stand the annual mutiny no more. But, as with most things in life, there is a tipping point and that tipping point is forty years of age. For the next four days, my brother and I will both be forty. I know he won’t call to say I’m not the boss of him as those days are far behind us. It is time to seek revenge for every time he tried to challenge my authority. This year, it will be me that rings him. Yes, I will be the one who takes pleasure in the fact that we are the same age. That may sound cruel, but old habits die hard before producing a series of ever-less successful sequels. But that is beside the point. For now it is enough to say that by teasing my brother in this manner, I will once again become the tyrant I was always supposed to be. Happy birthday, Cam. www.stuartmccullough.com

Performance FOR more than 30 Port Fairy Folk Music Festival has celebrated folk, roots, blues and world music to become one of the staples of the Australian musical year. It is known as one of the great folk festivals of the world and this year’s line-up was described as mind blowing. The 37th festival will add to the rich tapestry of the summer music season and already confirmed for 2013 are Arlo Guthrie, Gurrumul, Kate Miller-Heidke, Ruthie Foster, Christine Anu, Eric Bogle, Finbar Furey and Glen Hansard. Like his father Woody Guthrie, Arlo Guthrie has carved out a career as a folksinger and songwriter with a social conscience who leavens political messages with humour. His 1967 album Alice’s Restaurant established him as more than just the son of Woody. Scottish-born Eric Bogle is considered to be one of the finest songwriters in the modern folk tradition and many international artists such as Joan Baez, The Dubliners and The Pogues have recorded his material. His classics include And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda and The Green Fields of France, with many cover versions recorded by Slim Dusty, John Williamson and Deniese Morrison. The festival is on Labor Day long weekend, 8-11 March 2013. Tickets (03) 5568 2227 or www.portfairyfolkfestival.com *** TO celebrate a life-changing year, a number of artists from the television show The Voice have collaborated for The Voices of Christmas, a collection of Christmas songs to be released 9 November. The album features many favourite performers from the show including a rendition of Merry Christmas Baby from winner Karise Eden. Darren Percival sings Winter Wonderland, Rachael Leahcar performs Jingle Bell Rock, Sarah De Bono sings All I Want For Christmas Is You plus many more from the entire cast. Sarah De Bono said: “I’m honoured to be singing one of the greatest and most popular Christ-

Poppy’s Problem-solving mas songs ever written. I love this song and if there’s one thing this song is sure to do, it will get you up and dancing and enjoying what Christmas is all about.” The Voices of Christmas (Universal) is out on Friday 9 November. www.getmusic.com.au *** DARREN Percival, runner-up of The Voice Australia 2012 and resident soul singer, is set to release a new album, A Tribute to Ray Charles, covers of the late great American musician. Long-time friends soul songstresses Prinnie Stevens and Mahalia Barnes as well as acclaimed trumpeter James Morrison stepped in to add their Midas touches and make this a special record. It’s been a wild ride in 2012 for Percival – capturing the hearts of Australia on The Voice and having his debut album Happy Home storm into ARIA album chart at No 3 and being certified gold. Having embarked on a national tour in September, which continues through to December, Percival is performing songs from Happy Home

By Gary Turner and A Tribute to Ray Charles including I Can’t Stop Loving You, Georgia On My Mind, Unchain My Heart, Hit the Road Jack, and Shake a Tail Feather. www.mrpercival.com *** THE Rolling Stones release a new album GRRR! (Universal) on 12 November. It is a must for Stones fans featuring the new One More Shot as well as classic tracks Gimme Shelter, (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Street Fighting Man, Start Me Up, Beast of Burden, Tumbling Dice, and Love Is Strong. GRRR! also will be available to pre-order on iTunes. Fans who pre-order the album will receive an instant download of the single Doom and Gloom. www.rollingstonesstore.com.au

A Grain of Salt LIKE most men, I was indoctrinated into male superiority at birth. True, females were better at playing jacks and excelled in class up to year eight, but thankfully a move to an all-male high school quashed any doubts I may have had. Some males retained these doubts and joined the Greens, but we, the majority, walked tall; social custom prevailed. It was never misogyny, simply a realisation of the state of play on Planet Earth. Julia’s speech to Tony was a gem devoid of motivational comments, apparently? From a long, long build up she was simply giving Tony what he earned. You can twist and turn Julia’s verbal payout any way you like, depending on your political bias, but it was galvanising and deserved the international attention. Like most males, it’s not easy to play second fiddle to a female. Tony resents this, moreso because day after day, despite his verbal attacks, she remains the Queen Bee, and it hurts. Some things are best looked at from a simplistic point of view. We overrate politicians. Human nature is common to all and in that respect politicians are no Einsteins. *** SPEAKING of politics, where is the inspiration? With previous leaders on both sides, their respective followers would have faith, trust even, in their visions and ideals. Can the same be said of Julia and Tony? More likely the support for one (aside from birth bias) is because they do not support the other, state and federal. And all these side issues steeped in hypocrisy: the gambling, from which they make millions and repay probably less than 1 per cent to warn us of the evils? The tobacco with billions to them and ugly drawings to warn us? Rudd did the first big price hike on cigarettes with the superior belief that we required educating? Who is “we”? Lately it’s beer and wine casks, the thrust of costing us more in the guise of our good health but resulting in more for government coffers. In fact, it becomes a form of prohibition with the bottom line always being that it’s unfair on the poorer people. Are you listening pollies? Pity the single mothers

who like a smoke and the odd glass. Is that evil? Pity we can’t legislate against morality. But they don’t think that way. They are above thinking. And state politics? Well, the mention of Matthew Guy and Geoff Shaw is sufficient. “When a state becomes a croupier, it is closer to its end than its beginning.” John Raulston Saul *** I LOVE a good Catholic, don’t you? I’m never sure what it means but I love the sound. Some of my friends, my late wife, were (are?) Catholics. Some good, some simply Catholics. All embracing. Tony Abbott, Christopher Pyne, Eric Abetz and honest Joe Hockey; all good Catholics. Even Tony’s replacement in the near future, Malcolm Turnbull, is a good Catholic. Cardinal George Pell is best described as an extra good devout Catholic. And then we have Kevin Andrews, declaring marriage may help prevent cancer, unless of course you’re gay. Amazing stuff. When the Liberals gain power in 2013 we will be in good hands, religiously speaking. And Julia, well, she’s a non-believer. St Peter will be waiting for her. Nobody learns from history, or are we in good hands? Me? I have no opinion whatever their religious beliefs and my hands are ageing fast. *** A FORMER head of the Futures Fund on 7.30 was saying Australia could go down the same financial path as the Greeks. But we pay taxes? Nope, they go in welfare payments one way or the other. The problem is our ever-increasing balance of payments, as in overseas debt, the housing market and the Australian dollar, I think? My 1965 accountancy qualifications were no help. He wasn’t blaming either party or the banks, simply we walk a tricky path. Labor did well during the financial crash aftermath but erred in giving cash handouts apparently. Telling it like it is (or was) without political bias. So who will we blame if matters get worse? The politicians and the banks obviously, as did the Greeks without cause. Strangely, while the Irish blamed the same culprits (and paid

By Cliff Ellen

taxes), they did not hit the streets like the Greeks; they simply voted the government out at the next election or, as they do, emigrated. *** CREATIVITY in writing is quite simple when you subtract all the rubbish written about it. It’s about letting your imagination out to play. Easier perhaps when you’re young, so stay young forever. No imagination, no creativity, and we all have imagination. Use it. Arm yourself with your ideas, ignore any criticism, have faith, and your imagination, history, unique point of view will feed your soul. Care about your work, that’s the whole point. Don’t expect anyone else to get fired up if you aren’t. Okay? The same goes for visual and performing arts. Culture; never be frightened. It’s only a word. Over to you, before it passes you by. 80 is the cut-off point. *** NUMBER 4 in the Melbourne Cup. I pick it every year so eventually I’ll be spot on. Evening Peal was my last winner, 1956; I’m overdue. Prince Charles and Camilla in town; heaven on a stick? Readers may recall my reference to my seven teeth. Make that six, which is six more than the UN Security Council. “I believe imagination is stronger than knowledge, myth is more potent than history, dreams are more powerful than facts, hope always triumphs over experience, laughter is the only cure for grief and love is stronger than death.” Robert Fulghum I’m taking a break, returning mid-December. Keep yourselves nice... cliffie9@bigpond.com

ALISTAIR bought a new fishing boat as advised by Poppy. He made sure the motor was a four-stroke so he would not add to an already polluted bay system. He also bought “local” on the peninsula. This set him back a lot of “thousands”, three or four more than disclosed to his wife, the lovely Aubrey. He also purchased a yearly ticket for boat ramps, or actually just some of them on the peninsula (funny that!), figuring this was the best option. As you cannot catch fish without gear, he also spent a couple more of those four nought things on getting the right rods and reels, lines, lures and tackle. Boy was he ready to supply his family and friends with fresh fish and delectable calamari. Bring it on, he said. He heard about the Tea Tree festival at Mornington where big snapper are presented to the weighmaster for prizes and thought he might give that a go. First, though, he needed a bit of experience in getting the snapper in the boat. Off (to a boat ramp near you) he went at an ungodly hour in the morning. He was excited and ready to go. Fresh bait had been purchased, together with soft plastics and fish-attracting sprays. The lovely Aubrey had made coffee and sandwiches, and Alistair had some stubbies on ice to celebrate the catch. What could possibly go wrong? On arrival at the entrance to the parking area for boats and trailers, Alistair could not believe his eyes – the whole place was gridlocked. He parked in the non-moving queue 400 metres from the ramp, and did what the other drivers were doing – walked down to check out the action at the ramp. He could not believe what he saw. In lane one was the bonnet and roof of a white Mazda four-wheel drive just visible above the water with a boat sort of trying to float still attached to its trailer. Alistair did not think this was quite normal, but a lot of onlookers were laughing and cheering. In lane two were two cars with boats on trailers wedged up against each other, and two men were “punching the stuffing” out of each other. To add to the pandemonium, blokes were tooting car horns and shouting obscenities. Alistair asked an older gentleman standing quietly on the side if this was normal. He replied it was for the whole snapper season, and that it was great entertainment every day and that he would not miss it for quids. Alistair went back to his boat, drove most of the way home, pulled up on the side of the road, ate his sandwiches, drank the coffee, and then the stubbies (he was almost home and hoped that blue highway patrol car was not around) and drove the last 200 metres and into his driveway. The lovely Aubrey asked him about his fishing trip and he told her it was the most amazing experience of his life, and could she go shopping as he had to make a phone call. That’s when the phone rang at my place! Funny that. Poppy’s solution I told Alistair that what he witnessed was normal because the shire spent heaps of money on bike tracks, and nothing on boat ramps and parking facilities, while at the same time, promoting the beach and water activities. I explained the reason boat owners had to pay to use the ramps, and bike riders didn’t to use the tracks, was because of a lack of planning and forethought, but the council needed the ramp money to spend on self-advertising. I told him to wait until February when everyone had done enough damage to their cars and boats, and were recovering from assault injuries, and then he could fish to his heart’s content. I explained big snapper are not great eating anyway, and to further his experience to take his stubbies and watch the carnage at the boat ramp for entertainment until then. I also pointed out that the council could have insisted that “Cove” place at Safety Beach include a much bigger public boat ramp that was not “daylight hours only” when they approved the original development to relieve the congestion, but that’s another story.  Poppy will solve problems every fortnight.

Ducs peck Sharks, Reds knock off Ballam PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully MOOROODUC is in a strong position to cause the first big upset of the season against Sorrento. Winning the toss and batting first, the Ducs made steady progress throughout the afternoon, eventually being bowled out in the 64th over for 235. Mark Cordeux played a match-saving innings at the bottom of the order with 68, while the tail of Justin McCleary (21) and Nick Williams (20) supported him extremely well. Cordeux, McCleary and Williams took the score from 8/120 to 235. Luke Sheenan was solid at the top of the order with 47 and Stuart Plunkett

made 26. Skipper Bobby Wilson was removed for a duck, courtesy of Anthony Blackwell, who snared 5/58 off 20 overs. Sorrento openers Jedd Falck and Nick Jewell have been getting their side away to a flyer this season, but both are back in the sheds after McLeary claimed Falck and Plunkett had Jewell trapped leg before for 25. The Sharks will resume at 2/39. Mt Martha has already picked up the victory against Ballam Park. Looking for an outright, the Reds won the toss and batted first, making 5/106 in 35 overs. Martin Hand top-scored with 34, Mitch Darville hit 27 and Jason Jacoby was not out 22 before skipper Chris

Holcombe declared the innings closed. The Knights were bowled out for 102 in 40 overs. Matty Roach topscored with 43. Justin Pomeroy was the pick of the Mt Martha bowlers with 4/16 from 11 overs, while Tim Bateman snared 4/39 from 14. David Sands chipped in with 2/21. The Reds will be going all out for the outright this weekend. Mt Eliza has plenty of work to do with the ball to get the points over neighbour Peninsula Old Boys. The Old Boys won the toss and elected to bowl, which proved to be a good move by the end of the day. POB restricted the Mounties to 9/166 off 75 overs.

Justin Grant with 46 was the best of the Mounties’ bats, while Adam Mikkelson was a contributor yet again with 27. Adam Jones, Zac Fillipone, John Forrest and Dylan O’Malley all claimed two wickets each for the Old Boys. Mornington faces an uphill battle against Rye after being bowled out 142 in 66 overs. Rob Hearn opened the innings with 48 for the Dogs, and Luke Popov contributed 22. Rhys Wynne was clearly the best of the Demons’ bowlers with 4/47 from 29 overs, while Aaron Vernon and Justin King each claimed two wickets. Darren Groves bowled 13 overs for just 16 runs.

In reply, the Demons are 0/14 from nine overs. A century to Justin Bridgeman has helped Long Island to 9/229 against Heatherhill. Joel Stevenson and Andrew Tweedle played great supporting roles to Bridgeman (102) with 33 and 30 respectively. Brett Maxwell was the best of the Hills’ bowlers with 3/75 from 28 overs, while James Bolletta claimed 2/32. In the final match of the round, Baxter’s ground was unplayable for its match against Crib Point and the teams will play a one-day match this weekend.

Burdett and Weare wind back clock as Blues struggle against Braves DISTRICT By IT Gully TWO of the MPCA’s best-ever batsmen, Keith Burdett and Danny Weare, wound back the clock on Saturday by scoring centuries in MPCA District cricket. Burdett smacked 129 for Somerville against Boneo in its round three match, while Weare hit an even 100 as Langwarrin took on Flinders at B A Cairns Reserve. The triple figures ensured that both Somerville and Langwarrin passed 300, making life very difficult for the opposition. Main Ridge has set Pines a big total of 272 for victory, Delacombe Park smacked 259 against Frankston YCW, Baden Powell needs just 98 runs with nine wickets in hand to beat Hastings, and Seaford is staring down the barrel against Carrum, which needs just 46 runs to claim the 12 points.

With no points from its opening two matches, Somerville needed to produce something special against Boneo. Knowing the opposition wasn’t in the greatest of touch, Boneo sent the Eagles in to bat after winning the toss. Burdett opened the innings, rather than batting in the middle order, and out on 123 with opening partner Nick Marshall, who helped himself to 48. Andrew West then came in the middle order and hit 63, helping the home side to 7/317 from 75 overs. Stewart Mathieson, Leigh Janssen and Ryan Jellie all claimed three wickets each for Boneo. With the likes of Ben Wells and reigning league medallist David Ross unavailable to play, Danny Weare made an earlier than expected return to Langwarrin’s First XI in the game against Flinders. Coming in at three, Weare cracked 100, while Andy Johnson hit 70 after

coming off a ton the match before. Jarryd Amalfi made 46 and coach Mark Cooper 32 as Langwarrin amassed 8/319 in its 75 overs. Tom Clements was the pick of the Flinders bowlers with 4/62 off 18 overs. Hastings will need to produce something special with the ball to beat Baden Powell. Winning the toss and batting first, the Blues were scratchy early. Coach Scott Phillips got things back on track with 69, but quickly ran out of partners. With Brad Watson (23), Jake Hewitt (18) and Luke Hewitt (15) the only other three batsmen to score double figures, the bottom quickly fell out of the Blues. Hastings lost 6/10 when Tim Birch was dismissed for six. Anjula Perera was the X factor for the Braves, snaring four wickets, while John Harrison snared a couple. The Braves faced the last 12 overs

of the day after bowling the Blues out for 141. Perera made 18 before he was dismissed by Isuru Dias. Adam Landry was aggressive from the start and will resume on 26 with the Braves 1/44. Delacombe Park bounced back from an ordinary performance in its last match with the majority of the batting line-up having an impact against Frankston YCW. Nick Christides opened with 26, Connor Glendinning top-scored with 43, Joel Malcolm hit 42 and Jon Guthrie spent some time in the middle to compile 31. Shane Deal made a solid contribution at the end of the innings with 23. The Parkers were bowled out in the second last over for 259. Damien Lawrence was again the star for Seaford, this time against Carrum, scoring 51 of the team’s total of 125. A handy 14 from Andy McMannis, 13 from newcomer Warren Clark and

14 from Geoff Smith ensured the home side got passed 100. The Lions shared the wickets around, Dean Polson snaring three, and Lachy Dobson and Jeremy Graves two each. In reply, the Lions are 2/79, Shaun Foster out for 31, while Josh Dent is still at the crease on 33. McMannis and Chris Cleef were the wicket-takers. Main Ridge has set Pines a reasonable task after making 8/271 from its allotted 75 overs. Peter Mereszko was outstanding at the top of the order with 64, Gareth Wyatt backed up his 90-odd from the week before with 60, Brendan Rossborough had an impact with 49 and Travis Barker made 37. Brett Hudgson was the pick of the Pines bowlers with 4/86 from 24 overs, and Ricky Ramsdale claimed 2/54.

Hillmen and Islanders slug it out SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully THE match between Red Hill and French Island will go down to the wire after 15 wickets fell on the first day in the Sub-district round three match. The game was expected to be one-sided in favour of last year’s grand finalists, but the Islanders bowled well, dismissing the highly fancied visitors for 94 in 55.4 overs. Skipper Simon Dart, coming off a couple of tons, was the first man to go for 11. Only two other players, Riley Shaw (35) and Matthew Merrifield (21), reached double figures. Aaron King bowled 10 overs and snared 3/9, Ben King picked up 2/26, including the wicket of Dart, and Tom Sullivan snared 3/8 from 11 overs. Unfortunately for the Islanders, the batsmen could not emulate the bowlers’ good work.

At stumps on day one, the home side is 4/38. Dart has two wickets and caused a run-out, and Glenn Collett clean bowled Sullivan. Rosebud has set Skye a big run chase after scoring 218 from its 75 overs on Saturday. Openers Darren Kerr (36) and Greg McCann (64) got the visitors away to a great start before lower order players Danny Helybut (42) and Leslie Parslow (32) resurrected things after the middle order collapsed. After being 0/97, the Buds slipped to 6/133 at one point. Paul Fillipone was the best of the Skye bowlers with 4/49, and Phil Clinch and Ben Milano claimed three wickets each. Balnarring has set Dromana an unreachable total of 325 for victory. Jedd Savage and Zac Klan picked up two wickets each for the Hoppers. Tyabb will have to be at its

best with the ball to defend 166 against Seaford Tigers. Teenager Jordan Watters picked up three of the first five wickets for the Tigers, while Corey Hand took the other two. David James and Ash Mills were the other multiple wickettakers for the Tigers. Jarrod White top-scored for the Yabbies with 53, Ben Van Wees opened the innings with 30, Geoff Glaum scored 28 and Craig Conlan made 22. In reply, the Tigers are 1/14. In the final game, Pearcedale is in a strong position against Carrum Downs, despite falling just short of 200. The Panthers finished on 9/197, Lachlan Cross topscoring with 49, Brad Trotter making 33, Kaine Smith 27 and Warren TeGiffel 29. Chamara Perera, Steve Worker and Josh Harkness all snared two wickets each for the Cougars.

Hastings bats fail to fire at Baden Powell HASTINGS CRICKET

By Greg Bradshaw HASTINGS Firsts travelled to Baden Powell to play the first two-day game of the season. As mentioned in last week’s report, batting the whole 75 overs was imperative to winning the game. Hastings chose to bat but lost both openers in the seventh and eighth overs, 2/29 with Brad Watson making 23. Scott Phillips and Jake Hewitt then set about consolidating the innings, adding 28 runs before Hewitt was dismissed for 18. Luke Hewitt then joined Phillips and they combined well taking the score to 101 when Hewitt was given out LBW, the first of four. Hewitt made 15. Phillips was batting well but with wickets tumbling around him he was dismissed for 69, 7/140. The tail offered no resistance at all, Hastings all out for only 141 off 63 overs.

Baden Powell had 12 overs to bat and wiped 44 runs off the target with the loss of only one wicket and now is in the box seat to win the game. Issy Dias took the wicket to fall, 1/16 off 6 overs. Hastings Seconds also played Baden Powell and, after being forced to make five changes to the previous week’s team, chose to bat first. After two overs the score was 2/1 with two ducks. Liam Bradshaw and Craig McNamara then combined for a 48-run partnership but both fell within five overs of each other, 4/59, with Bradshaw making 23 and McNamara 22. Jason Slocombe then compiled 30 as the rest fell like flies, all out for 93 in only 38 overs. Hastings’ bowlers were made to work hard, and claimed only one wicket, but kept the runs down as Baden Powell reached 1/78 off 36 overs at stumps. McNamara took the wicket, 1/15 off 7 overs, while Peter Dale bowled with-

out luck, finishing with 0/12 off 9 tidy overs. Hastings Thirds travelled up the road to take on Tyabb. Hastings batted first, losing Pat Foy early, 1/5. Glenn Jansz batted very well, hitting a timely 63, and 13-year-old Matt Foy batted 28 overs to finish with 33no. Chris Marsh had a slog at the end and made 32 valuable runs. Hastings finished with 5/160 off 40 overs. Tyabb came out firing and was going at six runs an over before losing the first wicket at 66. The next pair added another 64 runs, 2/130 off only 21 overs, that was it. Tyabb finished with 6/166 off only 29 overs win. P Foy gave himself a bowl, taking 3/27, and Kayne Lewis, back from Thailand, took 2/23 off 6 overs in his first game of the season. The previously undefeated fourths played Rosebud on Sunday. Hastings batted for just 21 overs scoring just 80 with Chris Lehmann making 33. Rose-

bud rattled off the runs in 22 overs, finishing with 4/84. Aaron Vinson took 2/22, Michael Phillips 1/3 and Lehmann 1/13. The team plays its next game on 18 November and will have to train hard to improve. The Under-15s played a combined Rosebud-Boneo team, a very talented outfit. Hastings elected to bowl in drizzly conditions and the opposition started solidly, racing to 2/60 off 14 overs. The boys then pegged them back with some tight bowling from the younger bowlers, 6/104 off 33 overs. After 45 overs they managed 135, which included 30 wides and no-balls, which equates to 30 extra runs and 5 extra overs to score, the only downside to the team’s performance. Sean Hewitt had the best figures with 4/23 while Zach Bradshaw took 1/7, Lachlan Cox 1/9, Andrew Jeffs 1/10 and Jesse Moffatt 1/15. The Under-13s travelled to Mt Mar-

tha. Hastings batted first with Shelby Lothian-Burdett making a fine 36no, Ryan McNamara also batted well, making 34 while under-11 player Patty Wilson made a solid 27 and Thomas Finn 12 as Hastings reached 10/160 off 34 overs. Mt Martha was 1/12 at stumps with McNamara taking 1/5. The Under-11s played Balnarring on a wet Friday night with Balnarring making 11/38 off its 20 overs. Wickets were shared around with Max Bradshaw taking 1/3, Lachie Robertson 1/4, Thomas Finn 1/1, Matt Dodd 1/2 and Jake Maxted 1/3. Hastings batted well, making 1/99 off its 20 overs with Devlin Webb scoring 17ret, Patty Wilson 14ret. Finn 8ret and Thomas Buckley 6ret. Coming event: This Thursday 1 November, Hastings versus Crib Point in a Twenty20 game starting at 5.15pm sharp under lights at Hastings.

Cream of Chantilly chases Cup repeat ABOUT an hour’s drive from Paris in the beautiful forests of Chantilly is one of the world’s most famous training centres. Winding through a canopy of trees are tranquil training tracks described as heaven for horses. Over the years the tracks have proven their worth where they count most, on the racecourse. The last two winners of the Melbourne Cup – Americain and Dunaden – are testimony to this and they will be right at the forefront of next Tuesday’s 152nd edition of the race that stops a nation. A magnificent specimen, Americain, who is trained by Alain de Royer Dupre, created a lasting impression with his cup win two years ago. After winning the Moonee Valley Cup last year, he was set a virtually impossible task by jockey Gerald Mosse when a fast-finishing fourth. He stamped his credentials for another victory when a courageous fourth behind Dunaden in the Caulfield Cup after racing wide throughout. Significantly he wasn’t as “trained up” as Dunaden and will be much tougher for Dunaden to beat at Flemington. Over the past 12 months Dunaden, who is in the care of former Alain de Royer Dupre assistant Mikel Delzangles, has done everything asked of him. He followed his Melbourne Cup victory with a win in the prestigious Hong Kong Cup and scored a devastating last to first win in the Caulfield Cup. This year de Royer Dupre, who is acknowledged as one of the world’s greatest trainers, is launching a twopronged attack with the rejuvenated Shahwardi. An impressive winner of the Herbert Power Handicap at Caulfield, Shahwardi has shown his ability and

stamina this year by finishing third in the Prix Kergorlay – a race that Americain and Dunaden came through on their way to Melbourne Cup success – as well as running second over 4300m at Royal Ascot. Another prospective challenger from Chantilly is the quality stayer Brigantin. Trained by Andre Fabre, who is renowned as the little genius, Brigantin missed the opportunity to qualify for the cup when he was outsprinted in the Geelong Cup last Wednesday. However, if he managed to secure a start he would be a serious contender. While France and Ireland have two Melbourne Cup victories to their credit and Japan has one, a Britishtrained stayer has yet to win. But Newmarket-based Luca Cumani is right in the running to remedy the situation with Mount Athos. Cumani, who just missed four years ago when Bauer was nosed out by Viewed, has brought Mount Athos with a perfectly timed preparation. Since being added to Cumani’s stable earlier this year, Mount Athos

has won at each of his three outings up to 2800m. What appeals most about the Montjeu six-year-old is he has tactical speed and can quicken, which is an important ingredient in the Melbourne Cup. Like Bauer, another British-trained horse, Red Cadeaux, came agonisingly close last year when beaten by a matter of centimetres. Taking a line through his success in the Yorkshire Cup and second in the time-honoured Coronation Cup at Epsom Downs, the signs are Red Cadeaux will be even better than 12 months ago. Once again Sheikh Mohammed’s Godolphin has two noteworthy entries – Lost In The Moment and Cavalryman. So far the operation has only managed two seconds and a third, but Lost In The Moment, who was sixth last year, and Cavalryman – a placegetter in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe – will carry the dark blue colours honourably. Canny Irishman Dermot Weld – a winner with Vintage Crop in 1993 and

Media Puzzle in 2002 – has prepared the lightly raced Galileo’s Choice with this race in mind. However, unlike earlier Weld visitors, Galileo’s Choice hasn’t travelled well and is causing some prerace concern. Like last year when the first seven horses home were imported, of which six were northern hemisphere-trained, overseas stayers are again expected to dominate. The brightest Australian prospects are Maluckyday and the Morningtontrained Ethiopia. After being runner-up to Americain, Maluckyday suffered a series of problems but recent efforts suggest he is back on track. The muddling pace was against him in the Geelong Cup but his closing sectionals were pleasing. The lightly raced Ethiopia was the Australian Derby winner at Randwick in the autumn and underlined his potential with a fighting fourth in the nation’s premier weight-for-age race at Moonee Valley last Saturday. However he has only had seven

starts and lack of experience could tell in the hustle and bustle over a demanding 3200m. Keys chance in other feature races at Flemington are: Derby – It’s a Dundeel, Honorius, Super Cool. Oaks – Dear Demi, Summerbliss, Zydeco. Coolmore – Sizzling, Snitzerland, Fire Thunderbolt. Mackinnon – Ocean Park, December Draw, Prairie Star. Myer Classic – Soft Sand, Streama, Secret Admirer.  International form expert Peter Ellis provides weekly racing tips online at the Tatts website.

How to win the snapper comp ON THE LINE By Paul “Tracker” Pingiaro ON Friday and Saturday many people will be venturing out onto our two bays hoping to bag a snapper in the 29th annual Tea Tree snapper fishing competition. Anglers from all over the state will converge on Port Phillip and Western Port seeking to become Victorian Amateur Snapper Fishing Champion. So where to fish? The competition is strictly for snapper caught in Port Phillip and Western Port. In Port Phillip, when the sun is up, look at fishing in 18-21 metres of water. If it’s night or the wind is blowing, try 8-16 metres of water. In Western Port, fish in 18-21 metres during the day or above shallow reefs in the evening or in the rough stuff. Some of my preferred hotspots in Port Phillip would include Ansetts, in 16 metres off Mt Eliza; Morrisons Reef off Mt Martha and in 21 metres of water off Carrum. In Western Port, try Lysaghts off Hastings, near Cowes, or Eagle and Crawfish rocks. Now for the rigs. I prefer a running sinker rig as this presents the bait in

Call the boys: Luke Russell with an 8kg snapper caught in Port Phillip last weekend. Picture: Paul Pingiaro

the most natural way. My running sinker rig typically consists of 60lb crane swivel followed by 1-2 metres of 30-60lb fluorocarbon leader and two 4/0-6/0 chemically sharpened hooks in an octopus/suicide pattern. The size of the hooks is dictated by the size of baits you’re using. Now I’m different to most when it

comes to sinkers. In Port Phillip I use three different sized sinkers – a size 1 bomb on an ezy rig cast out the side of the boat into the current, a size 1 ball on a 45-degree angle in the stern and a size 0 or 00 cast directly into the burley. In Western Port I use an ezy rig to make sinker changes easier. I tie a 50-100cm dropper off the ezy rig and attach my sinker to this. Make sure your dropper is at least 20 per cent weaker than your main line. If the sinker gets snagged, you bust off your sinker not the main line. The boys at Peninsula Total Tackle (11 Boneo Rd, Rosebud, or call 5981 1994) have sent in a squid report. “It’s the time of the year when the southern end of Port Phillip has been seeing some big squid. Most of the action has been in the tidal areas around Queenscliff and Lonsdale Bight and if you can organise a session on the slack water, Point Lonsdale and Nepean Bay has been pretty good, too. “Fishos are using a variety of means from the old baited jigs through to standard artificial jigs. Gancraft has been popular this year and will no doubt continue to account for fish over the coming month.

“Snapper are clearly the other species on everyone’s mind. Most of the action is from a little further up the bay. The best catches have been off Mt Eliza in 16-18 metres of water although some fish have been coming from Mornington to Mt Martha. It still slow but will change in the next few weeks.” Mornington Boat Hire clients caught some lovely fish over the weekend with quite a few snapper to 4.5kg and one monster of 8kg. Best locations have been B buoy, Ansetts and C buoy. Pinkies are also in great numbers around the mussel farm. Flathead are in good numbers and squid and whiting have returned to Mornington and Mt Eliza area, with best results in 3-6metres of water. Fishing in the deep water and the channels of Port Phillip and Western Port has yielded some great school and gummy sharks of up to 25kg. The change of tide and fresh bait is best. Jonny of Yaringa Boat Hire reports snapper to 6kg from Lysaghts and up to 9kg at Joes Island, gummy sharks in the mouth of Watsons Inlet and Eagle Rock, and good numbers of whiting from Hastings all the way to Warneet. He said the top of the tide and ebb

tide had been best. Other fish boated last week included leatherjacket, flathead, pike, salmon, gurnard, mullet and mackerel. From Carrum the number one topic has been snapper with lots of fishos trying their luck. Many snapper to 8kg have been boated and some of the most popular locations have included in 11 metres of water off Seaford, 16m and 19m off Mt Eliza, 14m and 21m off Frankston and Carrum. The best results are coming from lightly weighted rigs fished in the burley trail.  Paul “Tracker” Pingiaro has been fishing since he could hold a rod and stay in the boat. He was introduced to the sport by his father. Tracker has boat hire businesses in Mornington and at Yaringa Boat Harbour in Somerville. He has been a fishing writer for several magazines and now brings his knowledge to MP News Group papers for season 2012-13.

Juke on the way NISSAN Australia can confirm that the popular Juke will be on-sale in Australia for the first time in 2013. The introduction of the Juke will form part of an impressive wave of new models for Nissan, which will see new products introduced into Nissan dealerships roughly every two and a half months for the next two years. This product offensive is spear-headed by the return of the Nissan Pulsar and the release of the all-new Nissan Patrol. The Pulsar sedan and Patrol will both go on-sale from 1 February 2013, with the Pulsar hatch, which will include the sporty SSS, to follow roughly 100 days afterwards. “Adding the Juke to our line-up will give

Nissan another injection of innovation and excitement as well as strengthening our alreadyimpressive SUV range,” said Nissan Australia Managing Director and CEO William F Peffer Jr. “The Juke is a car that fits with our brand and has been highly anticipated in the Australian market for quite some time. I’m pleased to meet that anticipation with confirmation that the Juke will be turning heads on Australian roads from 2013.” Further information and Australian specification details for Juke will be announced at a later date, with Nissan confirming that the Juke will be sold in both two-wheel-drive and all-wheeldrive configurations in Australia.

Holden Cruze welcomes a new sibling THE new Holden Cruze Sportwagon has made its Australian debut at the Australian International Motor Show. The much anticipated sibling to the locallymade Cruze hatch and sedan will join the popular line-up early next year delivering a highly specified, flexible and safe, stylish vehicle. Cruze Sportwagon will be available in two models, a CD with the choice of two fuel efficient engines, a 1.8 litre petrol engine or a 2.0 litre turbo diesel, or a premium CDX with a 1.8 litre petrol engine. The entire range boasts generous load space, Bluetooth connectivity with voice recognition, cruise control and iPod integration with steering wheel controls as standard. The versatile Cruze Sportwagon boasts the same safety features and robust body structure that earned the Cruze sedan and hatch a five star safety

rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). Safety features include six airbags, rear park assist and electronic stability control including anti-lock braking system and traction control. John Elsworth, Holden’s Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, said the imported model would be the third variant of Holden’s popular small car and gave Holden a fantastic opportunity to reach new customers. “For customers looking for more versatility out of a mid-size vehicle Cruze now offers the perfect solution – the practicality of a wagon with the high-tech features and sporty styling that has made Cruze an Aussie favourite,” Mr Elsworth said. “This wagon is the perfect addition to the Cruze range and like the Commodore Sportwagon before it; it will put excitement back into this traditionally conservative segment.”
