Walking tall at Wallaroo IT was the dawn of a new era at Wallaroo Primary School on Monday as a new batch of prep pupils, including twins Xander and Callum, took the first steps on their learning journey. Previously known as Hastings Westpark, the state primary school has undergone a transformation with a new name, new uniform and new approach to learning. The rebranded and reinvigorated school has introduced an innovative new learning system, the Walker Learning Approach, which principal Mark Watters said had already brought promising results and had been quickly embraced by teachers, parents and pupils. Walker Learning is based on years of research to “personalise teaching and learning, combining the need for children to be active participants in their education through handson, creative exploration and investigation alongside formal instruction�. Mr Watters said Wallaroo was looking forward to a “bright and successful future� as the only state government school on the peninsula to fully implement the Walker Approach across all grades.

Abandon port: coast study By Mike Hast A NEW report calls for Western Port’s coastline to be protected and the proposed Port of Hastings expansion to be abandoned. The recommendation is in The Coast is Unclear: an uncertain future for nature along the Victorian coast released on Sunday by Victorian National Parks Association. It calls for the western shoreline of Port Phillip to be protected from port development, the so-called Bay West

option that rivalled Hastings until the Coalition government declared it favoured Western Port for a new container facility. The Port of Hastings should be left as it is and the state government should be “consolidating the ports of Melbourne, Geelong and Portland�. Another recommendation that affects the Mornington Peninsula is a call to abandon construction of the proposed Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre on the coastal reserve at Rose-

bud, approved by a narrow majority of shire councillors in December. The report says Victorians are loving the state’s coastline to death, and better planning policies are needed to avoid the “impacts of a new wave of development washing over the state’s 2000-kilometre coastline�.

lines and seaside towns, but the very landscapes that make summer holidays in the state so special are being transformed by development encouraged and approved by successive state governments,’’ association spokesman Simon Branigan said. The report calls for new and expanded state parks, greater protection for Western Port and Port Phillip, and an overhaul of the ad hoc way authorities manage the coast.

CFA News Fire Restrictions are now in force CFA declares the Fire Danger Period at the onset of warmer weather when fires in the open air are legally restricted. This is to help prevent fires from starting as dry vegetation and hot weather increase the incidence of fires accidentally starting and spreading. These restrictions are in place until 1 May unless revoked or varied. In State forests, National, State and Regional Parks and on protected public land, fire restrictions are in force all year round. Contact local DSE and Parks Victoria offices for advice on fire restrictions for these areas. The penalties for lighting fires illegally during the Fire Danger Period and on Total Fire Ban Days include large fines and possible imprisonment. During this period, permits are required for anyone to light a fire in the open. Permits can be downloaded directly from the CFA website or you can call your CFA Regional Office on 9767 1800.

Fire Danger Ratings The Fire Danger Rating predicts how a fire would behave if one started, including how difficult it would be to put out. The higher the rating, the more dangerous the conditions. The rating is your trigger to act, so to stay safe you need to stay aware of the Fire Danger Rating in your district. During the fire season, the Fire Danger Rating will feature in weather forecasts and be broadcast on radio and TV and appear in some newspapers. It can also be found on the CFA website or by calling the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667

Total Fire Bans Total Fire Bans are declared by CFA on days when fires are likely to spread rapidly and be difficult to control.

Western Port News 4 February 2014

On a day of Total Fire Ban you can’t light any kind of fire outside, including campfires or bonfires. The same goes for your barbecue if it uses liquid fuel, or a solid fuel such as wood, charcoal or briquettes. To find out exactly what you can and can’t do on a Total Fire Ban day, go to cfa.vic.gov.au or call the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667.

Reporting Illegal Burn off During the declared Fire Danger Period Residents who suspect illegal burning off during the Declared Fire Danger Period should report it to the Police on 000. The CFA website cfa.vic.gov.au provides information on what people can and can’t do during the Declared Fire Danger Period and Days of Total Fire ban.

Cricketers stump up for the cause CRIB Point Cricket Club president Ricky Thompson had no hesitation in joining hundreds of other clubs using pink stumps to help the McGrath Foundation’s efforts to help women with breast cancer. “Pink Stumps Day is something that really hits home for me personally as my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2008,” Thompson said. “Fortunately, she was one of the lucky ones and by October 2008 she was in remission. “It’s been a constant battle for the past five years and I can safely say my mother is without a doubt the toughest person I know. She is my hero. “The thing is, this is just my story. There are many families who have been affected by breast cancer in and around our club with hero stories of their own.” Thompson said playing with pink stumps on 22 February was “the perfect way for the club to show its support and do its bit to help such a great cause”. Crib Point is one of 1000 teams around the country participating on the day, which has been an annual event since 2011. In that time, more than 2500 clubs, schools, communities and businesses have raised more than $2.3 million for the foundation. This year’s $1 million target comes at the same time as the foundation

announced it had 100 McGrath breast care nurses working nationally. The foundation wants every family experiencing breast cancer in Australia to have access to a breast care nurse. Pink Stumps Day sees clubs invite friends, family and the community to join them at a women’s “high tea”, live entertainment, raffles, auctions and guest speakers. The foundation was set up following the death in 2008 of Jane McGrath, wife of former Test cricketer Glenn McGrath. She was 42 when she died, 11 years after being disgnosed with breast cancer. Her experience saw a team of passionate and dedicated people come together to take on the challenge of making life easier across Australia for families experiencing breast cancer by funding McGrath Breast Care Nurses nationally. To find out more about the foundation, visit www. mcgrathfoundation.com.au or on Facebook (mcgrathfoundation), Twitter (mcgrathfdn) or Instagram (mcgrathfoundation).

Stellar summer for tourism business TOURISM operators on the peninsula have had a stellar season so far with many reporting a 20 per cent or higher jump in sales and bookings on last year. Final figures are still being compiled for Mornington Peninsula Shire’s annual summer round-up, which will be presented to the community and the council this month. Some accommodation operators have reported a large increase in visitors from Asia, and many tourists from overseas and Australia stayed longer and spent more. Not everything has been smooth sailing with unseasonal windy weather and rough seas hampering Port Phillip cruises. Some operators reported the highest-ever number of cancelled boat trips in December and January. The four-day heatwave mid-January, the hottest ever recorded, was a double-edged sword with some holiday village owners reporting sales of pre-prepared meals, salad and wines “going through the roof”. But the blistering heat kept golfers away from the peninsula’s world-class courses. Late or last-minute bookings influenced by the weather are becoming the norm. Foreshore campers are increasingly extending their bookings through to Easter. The cherry on the tourism cake was just that – cherry farmers said the season had been a bumper one with farms sold out on many days due to increased numbers of visitors. Peninsula Link freeway being opened all summer has been partly responsible for the increase in business. Many Melburnians have realised they can drive to the peninsula in about an hour. Final figures are likely to show that the peninsula’s population increased by more than 70,000 people over summer. The number of day-trippers also is likely to be far higher than last summer.

CFA issues bushfire warning PROPERTY owners in the Western Port region are being urged to prepare for bushfires. Somerville CFA Captain Allan Monti says there have already been hundreds of fires across the state and “being prepared makes you safer from bushfires”. “Mornington Peninsula’s mix of a booming holiday population and resort towns with just one road in and one out makes it important that every member of the community – residents and holidaymakers – is ready,” Captain Monti said. His warnings came in the same week that fire bans came into force on the peninsula. “Having a good plan for your family’s safety means every member is alert on days of high fire danger and knows what to do straight away if there’s a fire in the area,” he said. “Good preparation means you’re not caught out if something goes wrong – a missed warning, a power failure, a road closure or just bad decisions made in a hurry.” He said the “simple message” was that “fire safety starts with you”. “Somerville fire brigade volunteers have a simple tip to get you started: have a batterypowered radio and a torch where you can easily find them. They will come in handy if there is a power failure, whether it is bushfire-related or not. Captain Monti said weather conditions and fire warnings were available at the state gov-

ernment’s www.emergency.vic.gov.au website and an information kit could be ordered by calling the bushfire information line on 1800 240 667. “Your local CFA volunteers are trained, qualified and ready to protect the community, and we want you to be ready, too, because fire safety starts with you,” he said. Victoria has 60,000 CFA volunteers, and CFA brigades protect 60 per cent of suburban Melbourne, regional cities and all of country Victoria every day and night of the year. Fires bans now in place mean no fires can be lit in the open air across the peninsula, Frankston or on French Island. During the ban, fires cannot be lit in the open air without a written permit from CFA

or the municipal fire prevention officer at Mornington Peninsula and Frankston councils. Anyone lighting a fire in the open without a permit faces fines of $17,000 and or 12 months’ imprisonment. Barbecues and fires for cooking and warmth do not require a permit, but must be lit in properly constructed fireplaces and not used in winds exceeding 10km/h. For more information about getting ready for the fire season, visit cfa.vic.gov.au or call 1800 240 667.

Families struggle to meet school costs By Chris Brennan RECORD numbers of Western Port and peninsula families are seeking emergency assistance as back-toschool costs push household budgets beyond the brink. Charity groups warn that more families are unable to meet basic living costs, especially after the Christmas holiday period, and the added burden for parents of school-aged children of uniforms, textbooks, camps and school service fees was proving too much. Mornington Community Information and Resource Centre manager Lisa Elliott said families were often being forced to cut back on food and other essentials to pay schooling costs. “Over the past two weeks, we’ve given out 60 per cent more food vouchers than in the preceding weeks, so that’s up on the Christmas period, which is traditionally our busiest period of the year for emergency relief,” she said.

“We’re also seeing a lot of people accessing our services for the first time, so that tells us more and more people are being pushed into crisis. “Many families have exhausted their finances over Christmas and the holidays and simply can’t afford back-toschool expenses. “It’s terrible to see families forced to make the choice between buying a pair of school shoes or going without food, but that’s the position many of them are in now.” Ms Elliott she warned things were set to get even worse for parents of school-aged children, with state and federal governments cutting off hundreds of dollars in payments designed to help meet school expenses. “I can’t imagine how people are going to make ends meet when the school bonus is cut off,” she said. “They’ll be forced to make even tougher choices than they do now. It will bite families

very hard and we’re very concerned about where things are heading.” Good Shepherd’s Mornington Peninsula family solutions manager Colin Valentine agreed, saying children forced to miss out on activities such as school camps or excursions due to limited money often felt excluded and isolated, which could have a dramatic effect on their overall education. “It’s a very tough time of year for parents,” he said. “Finances are already stretched in meeting just the basics of life such as rent, utilities and food, so the added cost of school expenses can be a cause of great distress. “There are often school camps at the start of the year, which are important for bonding and building a sense of belonging within the school environment, but parents might not be able to send their children, which can leave children feeling excluded.” Mr Valentine also warned of a

growing “digital divide”, with many families unable to afford laptops and tablets, which are becoming essential learning aids in schools. “These children will be left behind unless we address the issue,” he said. In a submission to an inquiry into approaches to homework in Victorian schools, Good Shepherd called on the state government to take responsibility for the payment of laptops for school children. Good Shepherd chief executive Robyn Roberts said technology costs threatened to exacerbate divisions between society’s haves and have-nots with serious long-term implications for education outcomes for students from less well-off families. “The facts are plain and simple. Many families cannot afford to pay for laptops and iPads,” she said. “They struggle to make ends meet and live day to day, many are single

parents, and unless something changes, many will continue to make the choice of spending their money on laptops or basic necessities such as food and clothes. Good Shepherd has called for the introduction of a student resource package to cover the costs of student’s technology needs. “This issue needs to stop being handballed. We need a real plan where we respond to the reality of what families are facing,” Ms Roberts said. “More and more kids from poorer families are dropping out of education. We now need a strong government to step up and arrest this slide. “The standard curriculum program should include provision of the technology software and hardware required for structured learning activities. “This includes at school and home, recognising that the same equipment is required across both sites of learning.”

School numbers break records By Chris Brennan RECORD numbers of Mornington Peninsula children took the first steps on their 13-year school education journey last week, with close to 2000 prep pupils entering the classroom for the first time. They joined more than 23,000 students returning to school to start the 2014 year at the peninsula’s 29 primary and six secondary schools. State Education Minister and local MP Martin Dixon said statistics showed this year’s intake of prep pupils was the biggest ever on the peninsula, with more young families choosing to move to the region, due in large part to the opening of Peninsula Link freeway. The Department of Education forecast about 1500 prep enrolments in state schools this year in Mornington Peninsula Shire, with hundreds more joining the Catholic and independent school systems. This compares with 900 students starting year 7 and 800 entering year 12 at state secondary schools in the shire. Mr Dixon said peninsula schools were well equipped to deal with the extra numbers, and welcomed the influx of families to the region. “It just shows how the peninsula is becoming even more popular with

young families who are now able to commute to work in much less time thanks to Peninsula Link while enjoying the fantastic lifestyle the peninsula offers,” Mr Dixon said. The Nepean MP said that in Victoria, more than 75,000 preps had joined the school system, in addition to more than 820,000 students who last week returned to school to start the year. “The start of the school year is an exciting time – and I am sure everyone is eager to get the year going,” Mr Dixon said. “It’s the start of a new chapter for many and I’m sure right across Victoria there will be plenty of proud parents waving goodbye at the school gate or the bus stop. There may also be some nerves – for parents and preps alike – but I’m sure they’ll settle in to school life quickly.” However, charity groups have warned that back-to-school costs were pushing many peninsula families over the brink as parents struggled to find extra funds to pay for uniforms, textbooks, camps, school service fees and other costs. About 890,600 students will attend Victorian schools this year – the highest on record – with 498,200 in primary schools and 392,400 secondary students. About 562,900 students are attending government schools, com-

erage participation rates at school and in higher education, with the retention rate for students going on from year 10 to complete year 12 now at 83.5 per cent, compared with the national average of 81.8 per cent; Mr Dixon said the findings showed Victorian students placed a high value on education. “It is pleasing to see Victoria has the highest retention rate for years 10-12 of any state … and also pleasing that

Victoria is the only state with higher than 90 per cent school attendance rates in Years 1-10,” he said. The report also showed Victoria had the best quality early childhood education and care in the country, with higher kindergarten enrolment rates than any other state. More than 70,000 Victorian fouryear-olds started preschool this week and last, with participation rates at record highs.

Diabetes camp a life saver FIFTY teens from across Victoria came together over the school holidays for a unique camp at Somers that aims to empower people with type 1 diabetes by teaching them to self-manage their illness. Participants in the program not only gain valuable education and guidance into how to looking after their own health, they’re also able to connect into a large network of other teens living with type 1 diabetes. Activities at the annual Diabetes Camp Australia event included swimming with dolphins, surfing, bowling and a disco on the last night. The camps are fully supervised with about 32 volunteers, 13 diabetes nurse educators, doctor, dietitian and dietitian assistant. Among those at this year’s camp was Langwarrin teen Brii Kapetanovski who said the experience had taught her to never give up because “even at the darkest of times, even if you don’t believe it, or see it, there are people who have not given up on you”. “There are people who are there to give every last bit of advice or help they can, just to make that little bit of difference to you – which is simply amazing,” After being first diagnosed with type 1 diabetes while in year 7, she

Keep on swimming: Langwarrin teen Brii Kapetanovski was able to swim with seals and dolphins while learning valuble skills at Diabetes Camp Australia in Somers.

was forced to remain in hospital for a week and was told she wasn’t allowed home until she could do her multiple daily insulin injections and blood glucose testing by herself. While she said the experience of living with diabetes was challenging, it was also often rewarding, and had in many way enriched her life. “Diabetes gets in the way and shows up at the most awkward, inconvenient time, however to some extent it makes you, you,” she said. “It makes you value your life more and makes you look at things differently. ‘Just keep swimming’ as Dory [from Finding Nemo] would say.”

Brii said the best part of the camp had been swimming with seals and dolphins, but she also valued having honest conversations with fellow campers, leaders and health professionals and to “know that, 100 per cent, you are not judged”. In a few years when Brii turns 18, she plans to return to camp as a leader, offering the same vital support she received. Every year, 200 young people living with type 1 diabetes miss out on camps due to funding shortfalls. To help or for more information, visit www.diabetesvic.org.au Chris Brennan

LETTERS Fire details YOUR paper carried a lead article concerning a fire on board a vessel in Rutherford Inlet at Warneet. I am the owner of the vessel and I would like to fill in some of the details (“Firefighters join forces to control boat blaze”, The News, 21/1/14). The first call that I can trace was made to 000 at 1.35pm and within minutes someone had made contact with Paul Elliott who grabbed his extinguisher and headed to the jetty to see what he could do. As my tender was tied to the pontoon, he realised I was off the boat and not in personal danger. Despite this, he proceeded to Sholem and tried to extinguish flames through the forward hatch. By this time I was on the jetty and he picked me up and took me back to a fiercely burning vessel. I boarded and removed four petrol containers (the locker where gas containers and other inflammables were stored on the aft deck was alight) before smoke, heat and pleading from Paul drove me from Sholem. The CFA was prompt and took over the situation efficiently. However, being land-based, there was little they could do at the time. I watched from Warneet Motor Yacht Club as 16 years of building and 12 years of being alive while I was on board Sholem succumbed to a very fierce fire. Believe me, the boat cost me a lot more than mere money. [Charter boat skipper] Glen Harvie had been informed of the situation while driving back from the peninsula. Typical of Glen to come to the aid of another, he arrived, launched his tender and with Paul proceeded to Sholem, cut the mooring lines and dragged her to shore where the CFA could attack the flames. Both Paul and Glen I believe did this without regard to their own safety and among exploding gas bottles and canisters, flares going off and the risk of an even greater explosion. In due course the Coast Guard arrived and reduced the flames to a more acceptable level. The equipment and training both of the CFA crew

from Warneet and the Coast Guard should instill a lot of confidence in these volunteers who come to the aid in situations like this. My heartfelt thanks to these fellows (and at least one CFA lass who did much to ensure that I was safe and well). I cannot close without saying how moved I was by the care, concern and consideration given to me by the people of Warneet. Both Paul Elliott and Glen Harvie deserve a special thanks for taking the risk in endeavoring to help Sholem and me in my hour of need. Sholem travelled the east coast of Australia, around Tasmania and made many visits to Bass Strait, leaving me with many stories to tell. And so ends 26 years of love and enjoyment and frustration. I don’t believe Sholem will sail again but, as the insurance company has already had offers, who knows? Mark Levenspiel, Warneet

Missing the point IN response to Joshua Sinclair’s letter last week regarding Cr Andrew Dixon (“Young views”, The News, 28/1/14), he has missed the point. Criticism of this young councillor has arisen from his foul language blog that clearly indicated his lack of vocabulary, and hence education, and some semblance of maturity, to enable him to adequately fulfil the role for which he was elected. In response to Torin Gallagher’s letter in the same edition (“Dixon defended”), the context of Cr Dixon holding a pistol in the picture accompanying the article “Critical blog sparks call for probe” (The News, 14/1/14) requires closer inspection, particularly of the target. It will reveal that Cr Dixon is not a straight shooter.

Emma gets an appetite to eat WHILE eating an apple seems normal to most people, biting into the fruit is a major step forward for Emma Coles. Seven-year-old Emma has started eating solid food after a prolonged battle with food aversion. Efforts to overcome her fear of eating over the past six years have involved treatment in the United States and at Peninsula Health’s feeding clinic. Emma was born at 27 weeks and began refusing all solids at 10 months before being diagnosed with a severe food aversion. The condition caused her to become distressed by the sight, smell, touch and taste of food. “Emma’s food aversion appeared to have been caused by difficulties with processing sensory information such as smell, touch and taste,” Peninsula Health speech pathologist Danielle Surwald said. “Consequently, as a young infant, Emma made strong associations between eating and negative experiences – feeling uncomfortable, nauseous – and developed a fear or phobia around food and eating.” Ms Surwald has been working with Emma since 2007 in conjunction with dieticians. The results have led to Emma now eating two small meals a day, with her lunchbox consisting of soup and yoghurt, replacing her previous formula-only diet. She now requires

one fortified formula drink during school. Ms Surwald said Emma was also learning how to bite and chew more solid foods. Emma underwent a comprehensive food education program at a dedicated sensory therapy centre in the US known as STAR (Sensory Therapies And Research) at the beginning of 2012. “The specialised non-profit centre in Colorado provides children and their families with education about sensory regulation, social engagement and coaching,” Ms Surwald said. “During her time at the clinic, Emma underwent an intensive program through which she achieved numerous feeding, physical and sensory tolerance goals. “Most significantly, Emma gained the ability to hold and play with food products as well as sitting at a table with food without high levels of stress or anxiety.”

Step forward: Emma Coles, right, is finally able to eat apples after years of treatment for food aversion. Speech pathologist Danielle Surwald, left, is part of the team that has been helping Emma get an appetite.

A welcome to geeks bearing laser printer savings By David Harrison OWNERS of laser printers, especially colour ones, are turning increasingly to non-genuine toner cartridges or refilling their empty ones, ignoring manufacturers’ warnings that this could invalidate the printer warranty. With branded cartridges costing more than $100, refills or non-genuine cartridges can cost half as much or less. A quiet revolt against high toner prices appears to be worldwide. My printer – requiring cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK) cartridges, each costing a threefigure price – recently told me it would print nothing further until I replaced the colour cartridges. Plenty of black, because the cartridge was fairly new, but no C, M or Y, according to the printer message. A quick look on the internet proved useful: the geeks have been at work on the ink problem. Some black ink cartridges can be brought back to life temporarily by simply removing and shaking them to redistribute toner. This does not necessarily

work with colour laser printers, which are generally more sophisticated. With colour printers, manufacturers build in ways of letting people know toner cartridges have run dry. But have they really run out? Some printers have laser beams that check toner level. The beam is aimed horizontally through a window in the cartridge: when toner empties sufficiently, the beam strikes a reflector in the cartridge opposite the window. This triggers a “low toner” message. The geek solution: block the laser beam with a bit of putty-like material so it can’t monitor the toner level. Downside: you might run out of toner at an inconvenient time. One printer owner reported his 3750 pages-percartridge mono printer produced several thousand more pages per cartridge when the beam was blocked. Another printer has CMYK cartridges each with a cog that revolves as printing occurs. All cogs

Enrolling online

revolve at the same rate. When cogs reach a mechanical stop, the “out of toner” message is activated, presumably even if toner remains in most of the cartridges. This may occur if most of your printing uses just black toner. Geek solution: remove the cartridges and carefully reposition the cogs to their starting point, so the printer thinks that toner remains – which it does. Then the toner will keep flowing until it runs out, or the cogs again reach the stop. It makes sense for printer makers to include ways to warn of imminent lack of toner. But it is expensive stuff, not to be wasted by premature cartridge replacement. Check online, by searching for your printer make and model, to see if the geeks – clever people, all – have found a way to help you get the most out of your cartridges. Or you might decide to refill your cartridges at home, or have it done professionally, rather than buying new ones. Many do that now. Either way you might save hundreds of dollars a year.

MORNINGTON’S University of the Third Age has installed an online enrolment system. It has enabled the group to place members in 168 courses and activities for the beginning of 2014 in a process completed in days rather than weeks using the old paper-based system. Months of planning and installation was led by tutor and computer expert Peter Norton. “We are the first of more than 100 U3A branches in Victoria to install a more efficient, member-controlled system,” he said. “In the past, volunteer members had to manually process large volumes of data over the summer break. The system is part of an upgrade of administrative and teaching facilities to meet the needs of a growing membership.” Details: 5975 9773.

Reade Smith stands for new party By Mike Hast FORMER shire councillor Reade Smith is the Mutual Party’s candidate for the upper house seat of Eastern Victoria at the state election in November. Mr Smith represented Western Port-based Cerberus Ward 2010-12 on Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and was Mt Eliza Ward’s councillor in 2000-10. The Tyabb resident and self-described social entrepreneur, community developer and farmer stood for Family First Party in the Flinders electorate at the 2010 federal election, winning 2198 votes, or 2.4 per cent, of 94,000 votes. He quit Family First last year after disagreeing with its climate policy, which he said did not support the concept of human-induced climate change. Mr Smith unsuccessfully ran for pre-selection for the Liberal Party at the 2006 state election in Eastern Victoria. The Mutual Party was formed late last year by Centre for Civil Society director Vern Hughes who co-founded the short-lived People Power Party with shareholder activist Stephen Mayne in 2000. Mr Hughes said it was “a broad-based, centrist political party that aims to win seats in federal, state and local governments, and enable ordinary citizens to reclaim ownership of our democracy�. “We welcome people from across the traditional left-right spectrum by emphasising the empowerment of citizens and civil society; collaboration across social divisions and political backgrounds; local initiatives and practical solutions to economic, social and environmental challenges; and stronger community relationships and responsibilities.� Mr Hughes has reportedly said he was confident the party would hold the balance of power after the election. He said the party planned to field candidates in all upper and lower house seats, and about half were current or former councillors.

The Mornington Peninsula Shire Council invites the community to provide input in the development of its draft 2014/15 Annual Budget, for consideration by Council. A community meeting will be held at the 6KLUHÂśV5RVHEXGRIÂżFHRQ:HGQHVGD\ 12 February 2014, commencing at 4pm. The meeting is an opportunity for interested persons to learn more about the budget process and for verbal presentations to be made in support of written submissions. Submission forms may be completed online or downloaded from the Shire website at www.mornpen.vic.gov.au. Submission forms will also be accepted by post or at the meeting. If you wish to make a verbal presentation of your written submission at the community meeting, please register your interest via email to budget@mornpen.vic.gov.au by 5pm, February 10, 2014.

“Our aim is to get community people with strong local connections,� he said. “We want to enable ordinary citizens to reclaim ownership of our democracy.� Mutual Party member Joanne Stuart said Mr Smith is “a social entrepreneur, community developer and farmer�. “He is a former senior constable in the Victoria Police, a youth worker, and facilitator of community projects in community safety, men’s health, social capacity building and social enterprise. “He co-founded the Mornington Peninsula branch of Dads in Distress and leads Be the Change Australia.� Mr Smith said his “current passions include community and small business development,

Website homes in on teen violence PENINSULA Health has helped develop a website that addresses the growing problem of violence committed by teenagers against members of their own family. The website, www.avith.com.au, which will be launched 11 February, is a one-stop resource for adolescents, families, carers and professionals working with families where there is adolescent violence in the home. Police call-outs to family violence incidents where an adolescent was the offender more than doubled in Victoria from 2154 incidents in 2006 to 4483 last year. The violence can take the form of threats of violence by a teen against one or more family member, intimidation, damage to property, physical violence, emotional or financial abuse or any behaviour that makes family members fearful. The website was funded through a Legal Services Board of Victoria project and developed by Peninsula Health in partnership with Victorian Legal Aid and City of Greater Dandenong youth services. Peninsula Health was last year awarded a $750,000 grant from the state government to provide a three-year Keeping Families Safe program that provides support both for families where an adolescent uses violence in the home and the adolescents themselves. Peninsula Health director of complex services Bel Berry said the website was an Australian first and provided a vital resource to help curb violence committed by adolescents in the home. “Many of the families we support tell us they didn’t know what to do about their violent children because they couldn’t find any information about this particular type of violence, why it happens or what they could do to stop it,� she said. “The website will go a long way toward closing the information gap by providing practical

COMMUNITY MEETING - 2014/15 BUDGET PROCESS

information for parents and carers as well as adolescents affected by adolescent violence in the home, and for professionals in the field.� She said it included downloadable resources and links to specialist legal and justice services, family and adolescent violence services, crisis phone numbers, and support groups. “The website is a practical and helpful tool that will complement early intervention initiatives like the Keeping Families Safe program we provide at Peninsula Health.� A report into adolescent violence funded and developed through the same project will also be released on February 11 to coincide with the website launch. The Last Resort: Pathways to Justice report explores the experiences and perspectives of a group of adolescents aged 12 to 18 years who have used violence against family members and ended up in the justice system. It also highlights the experience of family members, mostly parents, who were victims of violence. In one recommendation, the report calls for improved communication and links between police, legal and community sectors. “One of the issues identified was that the policies and protocols used by the justice system in Victoria deal mainly with adult family violence,� Ms Berry said. “However, adolescent offenders and their families deserve a more targeted response to help break the cycle of violence that so often carries on into the adolescents’ adult relationships.� “We hope this report will contribute to strengthening partnerships between health, community services and the justice system, and result in more positive responses to incidents of adolescent violence in the home,� she said.

sustainable development, innovative waste management, alternative energy and fuels, support for craft brewing, aquaculture, wild and native foods, food security, urban food gardens, and cycling�. On Monday, Mr Smith told The News he would be running a “frugal campaign� and would be his own campaign manager. He said he had known Vern Hughes since he first joined the shire council and admired his philosophies. Mr Smith works on two peninsula farms, as property manager of a property in Tyabb and as a worker at the Mt Martha commercial hydroponic business of former colleague Cr Anne Shaw and her husband Chris.

Sky the limit for Western Port Festival By Sarah McLennan, festival vice-president THE Western Port community is excited to invite you and your family to the 45th Western Port Festival at Hastings foreshore over three days from 21-23 February. We will have a number of amazing displays over the course of the weekend, including our famous street parade, fireworks displays, hot air balloons, art and craft show, mini-motorbike stunts, woodchopping competition from the Royal Melbourne Show, water-ski display team, and car show. Also appearing will be the Enterprize, a replica sailing ship commemorating the 1835 arrival of the original Enterprize, which carried some of the first white colonists who founded Melbourne. Supporting these amazing displays will be live music all weekend as well as amusement rides for adults and children, including a large Ferris wheel that will overlook Western Port – not to mention numerous community food and market stalls. Our family focus includes free children’s activities in Kidz Corner, with a teddy bear’s picnic on the Sunday morning, and the combined local churches-run Oasis Tent, which will provide a great resting place for adults to enjoy a fee cuppa or cold drink while the kids enjoy a range of free art and craft activities as well as various games, including stilt walking, water balloon catching, and a tug-of-war. Among those attending last year’s festival were Ella, 11, of Tyabb Primary School who said it was “Awesome!”, Olivia, 12, of St Mary’s Hastings, who said: “I loved the movie on Friday night and all the music”, Zack, 9, of Tyabb Primary School, who said he loved the food and “scary rides”, and Tessa, 7, also of Tyabb primary, who said: “I loved the fairy floss and the scary ride on a sort of big boat thing that rocked from side to side and went high and twisty”. “The Sky’s the Limit” is the festival’s 2014 theme, so don’t miss this alcohol-free, family-friendly event run by the community for the community.

Hair’s to safe families mission By Chris Brennan WHEN Hastings hairdresser Rebecca Wood heard Good Shepherd was running out of money for its Safe Families Fund, which provides help to Western Port and other peninsula women and children who have been subjected to family violence, she was determined to help. Having received assistance from Good Shepherd in the past after being subjected to domestic violence, Ms Wood knew first-hand the importance of assistance provided by the charity. So the owner of Hair About Town decided to organise a fundraising drive through her salon to ensure the vital work carried out by Good Shepherd was able to continue. With the help of staff member Craig Robinette, Ms Wood organised a raffle over the holiday period and raised $500. “Being subjected to and surviving domestic violence, Good Shepherd was there for me and my newborn baby girl,” she said. “When I read in the paper about its plight and that funding for the Safe Families Appeal was running out, I knew I had to do something to help. This cause is so close to my heart and I really think we need to take the reins and start supporting it more.” Good Shepherd chief executive Robyn Roberts said the charity relied on generous contributions from members of the community like Ms Wood to continue its work helping women and children escape family violence. The Safe Families Fund has been running short of money and late last year, Good Shepherd called on the “kind generosity of the public to make sure this vital program continues” by helping raise $40,000 for services in the Frankston and peninsula region (The News, 28/11/13). “The fund provides emergency assistance to women and children facing crisis,” Ms

Roberts said. “It is for transport, accommodation, food, financial aid and counselling.” Domestic violence affects one in five Victorian women and is the leading cause of death, disability and illness in women aged 15 to 44 as well as a leading contributor to women facing homelessness. “I know far too many stories of women suffering violence from the men they have left or tried to leave,” Ms Roberts said. “These women could have been made so much safer

if they’d had access to emergency financial relief.” Good Shepherd, which has been helping people overcome poverty and disadvantage since 1976, receives no government money for its Safe Families Fund. It assists about 18,000 people each year, the majority on the peninsula. To donate, go to www.goodshepvic.org.au, email support@goodshepvic.org.au or call 8412 7370.

Safe and secure: Pallets carrying rice for the Philippines are readied for transportation.

Rice supply off to Philippines RICE collected in Hastings is on its way to the Philippines to help people whose lives were devastated by a typhoon. Typhoon Haiyan swept across the island nation on 8 November last year, leaving more than 6000 dead, wrecking homes and infrastructure. The worst-hit areas are still recovering from the typhoon, regarded as the most powerful to ever hit the Philippines. The 10 tonnes of rice trucked out of Hastings resulted from an appeal launched by Western Port Oberon Association. The association also sprang into action by collecting 300 boxes of clothing for survivors in Sri Lanka of the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami. The Oberon association’s Max Bryant said the rice would be delivered to people in areas

Motorcyclist killed A MT Eliza motorcyclist died after a head-on collision with a four-wheel drive at Cape Schanck on Saturday afternoon. Police said the 36-year-old rider was on Boneo Rd when the collision occurred about 3.40pm. The man was declared dead at the scene by paramedics. The male driver of the car and his two passengers, a man and woman, were uninjured. Police will prepare a report for the Coroner. The fatality takes the road toll to 26, 12 more than at the same time last year


First round goes to duck-diving Fish FLINDERS surfer Georgia Fish won the first round of the Victorian Open series in challenging conditions at Gunnamatta on Saturday. “The waves were really fun, but there was heaps of duck-diving and paddling,� Fish said. “Last year was a real learning curve for me on the World Qualifying Series, but I’m really looking forward to this year. This is a good start.� The final saw Fish dominate with scores of 8.50 and 8.40, showing her knowledge of the break. Zoe Clarke (Jan Juc) came second with 7.67. Courtney Dunlop (Phillip Island) was third and Tabby Vockler (Mt Eliza) fourth. Jack Perry, of Jan Juc, won the men’s division after placing second in heats. “It was pretty hard out there; there were lots of close outs and wash-through sets. But when you got onto one, they were sick,� he said. The win sees Perry automatically given a spot in the 2014 Rip Curl Pro Pre-trials His trials win last saw Perry gain entry to the main event, eventually facing off against Joel Parkinson and Gabriel Medina. “It would be awesome to make it through again, but I’m just happy with winning this comp. It has been a while since I’ve won an event,� he said. Caiden Fowler, of Mt Eliza, was comfortable in his home break and rode the highest-scoring wave of the day, 8.67, in his semi-final. Fowler eventually came fourth with 9.23 points, behind Harrison Mann (Torquay) 10.13 and Steve Noble (Cape Paterson) 11.74. Perry took out the final with a 6.73-point wave in the last minute to tally 12.23. The competition’s next round is at Phillip Island on 1 March.

Mr Branigan said strong and comprehensive policies were needed from all political parties ahead of November’s state election. Climate change and coastal, urban, port and industrial development driven by rapid population growth were eroding “what we love about our coasts�, he said. “The rate of coastal urban sprawl over the past 20 years is alarming. We now face new pressures such as major port expansions at Western Port and Port Anthony, a breakwater at Mallacoota’s Bastion Point, the spread of coastal towns, and the opening up of national parks along the coast to large-scale commercial tourism developers.� Successive Victorian governments have contributed to the creation of a complex, disintegrated and ineffective coastal planning and management

framework that has been unable to stop the squeeze on coastal nature. Other findings include: ď Ž Of the 95 habitats found within 500 metres of the shoreline, more than 70 per cent are either endangered or vulnerable, including coast banksia woodland and estuarine wetland. ď Ž Threatened coastal habitats have become fragmented and vulnerable to pressures such as invasive plants and animals, grazing, intensification of land use in adjacent rural areas, and altered coastal processes. ď Ž The urbanised coast has expanded by 15 per cent over the past 20 years and now covers 311 kilometres, about 17 per cent of Victoria’s coastline. ď Ž Future population growth, urbanisation and climate change will be the key drivers of future declines in Victoria’s coastal nature.

Action urged on phone coverage MORNINGTON Peninsula residents enduring inadequate mobile phone coverage are invited to make submissions to a new federal government program that aims to improve networks across regional and outer metropolitan areas. The $100 million program includes provisions for $20 million to be spent on improving mobile coverage in locations with “unique coverage problems�, including tourist destinations such as the peninsula where there is high demand for services during holiday periods. About $80 million has been set aside for improvements to mobile networks along major transport routes, in small communities and in areas prone to natural disasters. The program aims to finance up to 300 new or upgraded mobile base stations across

Australia. Flinders federal MP Greg Hunt said residents and visitors could make submissions through his Hastings electoral office. “I have had many residents come to me with concerns over inadequate or non-existent mobile phone coverage, especially during the holiday period,� Mr Hunt said. “This is an opportunity for people to make a submission about why their area should be prioritised for network upgrades.� Submissions identifying locations with poor or non-existent mobile coverage can be sent by email to greg.hunt.mp@aph.gov.au with “Mobile coverage� in the subject line or in writing to PO Box 274, Hastings 3915 by 5pm Friday 28 February.

A magical night with a reborn Roach RESPECTED and admired Aboriginal singer–songwriter Archie Roach shared both poignant and light-hearted stories of growing up in the Australian outback and memories of life with his large family with about 150 people at Hickinbotham winery in Dromana on Friday night. Roach even managed to throw in some inspiring tunes he’d written over a long and distinguished career. The all-female a cappella group Ling Marra opened the night with an hour of harmonies and magical arrangements of songs from traditional and world music styles. In February 2010, Roach suffered immeasurably. Many people will remember the venerable and dignified performer, who captured the hearts and minds of a nation in 1990 with Charcoal Lane and the landmark

song Took the Children Away, lost his partner and soulmate Ruby Hunter. She was 54. However, a seeming new lease of life has seen him bounce back with new songs and a wonderous new live show. Together with his friend, guitarist and producer Craig Pilkington, Roach performed songs from a new album, Into The Bloodstream. They also played some of his best-known tracks including Took the Children Away and A Beautiful Child. Toward the end of the night, Roach brought Ling Marra back on stage to join him on one of his songs. The women’s voices sat perfectly with those of Roach and Pilkington, creating a stirring and beautiful finish to a wonderfully special concert. Words and picture: Yanni

Junior Players Wanted The Hastings Junior Football Club which was founded in 1971 is looking to recruit more players for the 2014 season. The club is a proud and active part of the Hastings community. It has a real family feel about it which encourages particaption for both boys and girls. Over the years many junior players have gone on to play for the proud and successful senior club. The senior club take an active interest in the junior club and help with coaching and a smooth transition into the u/18’s. Last season we ¿elded 3 teams U/10’s, U12’s and U/14’s. Next season we are aiming to ¿eld 5 sides, U/10’s, U/11’s, U/12’s, U/13’s and U/15’s. As well as boosting player membership we need extra so that current boys and girls can play in their correct age group, not having to play up an age group as some are currently doing. Another option is amalgamation which we would prefer not to do. The committee are dedicated to ensuring all resources are exhausted to recruit new players and families to our fun club. The league requires us to have our sides registered with a minimum of 16 players by Feb 14th , so with this is mind we will be having another registration/training session for the above age groups on Thursday 6th of Feb at 4:30 pm at the Hastings Football club. Also registration will be taken Friday 7th of Feb and Thursday 7th of Feb. It will no be to full on just about making a start and getting the word out there that we’re in recruiting mode. Spread the word and sign up.

The rose

JOHN Blanchard stood up from the bench, straightened his army uniform, and studied the crowd of people making their way through Grand Central Station. He looked for the girl whose heart he knew, but whose face he didn’t – the girl with the rose. His interest in her had begun 13 months before in a Florida library. Taking a book off the shelf he found himself intrigued, not with the words of the book, but with the notes pencilled in the margin. The soft handwriting reflected a thoughtful soul and insightful mind. In the front of the book, he discovered the previous owner’s name, Miss Hollis Maynell. With time and effort he located her address. She lived in New York City. He wrote her a letter introducing himself and inviting her to correspond. The next day he was shipped overseas for service in the Second World War. During the next year and one month the two grew to know each other through the mail. Each letter was a seed falling on a fertile heart. A romance was budding. Blanchard requested a photograph, but she refused. She felt that if he really cared, it wouldn’t matter what she looked like. When the day finally came for him to return from Europe,

they scheduled their first meeting – 7pm at Grand Central Station in New York. “You’ll recognise me,� she wrote, “by the red rose I’ll be wearing on my lapel.� So at 7pm he was in the station looking for a girl whose heart he loved, but whose face he’d never seen. A young woman was coming toward him, her figure long and slim. Her blonde hair lay back in curls from her delicate ears; her eyes were blue as flowers. Her lips and chin had a gentle firmness, and in her pale green suit she was like springtime come alive. He started toward her, entirely forgetting to notice that she was not wearing a rose. As he moved, a small, provocative smile curved her lips. “Going my way, sailor?� she murmured. Almost uncontrollably he made one step closer to her, and then he saw Hollis Maynell. She was standing almost directly behind the girl. A woman well past 40, she had greying hair tucked under a worn hat. She was more than plump, her thick-ankled feet thrust into low-heeled shoes. The girl in the green suit was walking quickly away. He felt as though he was being split in two, so keen was his desire to follow the girl, yet so deep was his longing for

the woman whose spirit had truly upheld his own. And there she stood. Her pale, plump face was gentle and sensible, her grey eyes had a warm and kindly twinkle. He did not hesitate. His fingers gripped the small worn blue leather copy of the book that was to identify him to her. This would not be love, but it would be something precious, something perhaps even better than love – a friendship for which he had been and must ever be grateful. He squared his shoulders, saluted and held out the book to the woman, even though while he spoke he felt choked by the bitterness of his disappointment. “I’m Lieutenant John Blanchard, and you must by Miss Maynell. I am so

glad you could meet me; may I take you to dinner?” The woman’s face broadened into a tolerant smile. “I don’t know what this is about, son,” she answered, “but the young lady in the green suit who just went by, she begged me to wear this rose on my coat. And she said if you were to ask me out to dinner, I should go and tell you that she is waiting for you in the big restaurant across the street. She said it was some kind of test.” It’s not difficult to understand and admire Miss Maynell’s wisdom.

Health and wellness centre marks birthday with special giveaways THERE’S a place in Somerville that is taking care of people’s health naturally and the word about this haven for wellbeing is beginning to catch on. The Natural Health and Wellness Clinic is a multimodality centre that offers people the opportunity to receive treatments for just about any concern that arises. Sunday 9 February is the centre’s open day. This coincides with the centre’s first birthday celebration and is a great opportunity to check out what’s on offer. Rebecca Milham, owner and nutritionist-naturopath at the centre, set up the clinic in memory of her mother who used to own the health food shop in Mt Eliza. “The open day gives people a chance to receive mini consultations with our practitioners as well as attend complimentary 30-minute yoga, Pilates and meditation classes,” she said. “Food demonstrations and delicious samples will also be passed around for tasty treat ideas. “Kids love the food and parents are surprised by what they’re made with. “During our birthday month in February, we are drawing one winner a week from our ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ Facebook promotion. “Four lucky people will win a different treatment or class a week for eight weeks. Every person who enters the front door offers something unique to the centre and this is one way we can give back. That’s 32 treatments or classes we’re giving away. “You may start by going in for osteopathy and go on to join a yoga or Pilates class. “A consultation for nutritional guidance may be beneficial alongside acupuncture, counselling, meditation, massage, kinesiology or Reiki. “Take your treatments as standalone or in conjunction with another modality, The Natural Health and Wellbeing Clinic definitely has your health covered ... naturally.” We’re one: Clinic staff are getting ready for the first birthday celebration including giveways.

FEATURE PROPERTY

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

Grand manor TAKING its name from a suburb in south-east London, Bexley Heath is set in peaceful Balnarring, a world away from its Old Dart namesake and the busy A2 motorway that weaves through it. Totally private, the property is accessed via a tree-lined driveway that slowly reveals a grand, stately home. The house is surrounded by an expansive lawn area and an incredible variety of trees and shrubs that are sure to keep the green thumb of the family happy for many hours. From the wide entry, resplendent with gleaming floor tiles, is a large formal lounge featuring a fireplace with beautiful marble surrounds, a separate study, and magnificent formal dining room with large windows that provide a serene outlook to the ornamental lake. Also on the ground floor is a spacious kitchen with a walk-in pantry and a delightful dining area with garden views through a bay window. A separate family room opens out to an alfresco timber deck, and along one side of the home is an undercover entertaining area with fabulous bar and barbecue facilities. There are three double bedrooms upstairs; two share a second bathroom while the palatial master bedroom is complete with an ensuite and spa, and access out to a private verandah. The rumpus room on this level provides handy extra living space or a play area for children. The property measures about 2.75 hectares and the grounds and surrounding outbuildings are excellent. A boat-house style dwelling set on the banks of the lake features a lounge, kitchen and bathroom, and can accommodate up to eight people. There is a cubby house with swings and a slide, and a secondary house with two mezzanines that will sleep a further four to six people. The property is set up for equestrian pursuits, with space for two horse floats. In addition, there are two stables, loose boxes, arena and round yard, as well as many other facilities for a home business. Beautifully private, this tranquil property is surprisingly close to Balnarring village, and be sure to experience the wisteria walk set in a water lily alcove on the lake.

New page in history set to be written VICTORIA’S most lucrative country cup meeting is growing in stature every year, as the Melbourne Racing Club continues to invest in Sportingbet Mornington Cup Day. In 2014, $1 million will be up for grabs on the 10-race card, headlined by the richest non-metropolitan cup in Australia, the listed $350,000 Sportingbet Mornington Cup (2400m). A ballot-exempt race for one of Australian racing’s grand slam events, the group one $3 million Caulfield Cup, the Mornington Cup this year is shaping as an exciting prospect, with several promising stayers aiming for cup glory at the picturesque peninsula jewel. Racing’s leading lady, Gai Waterhouse, learnt a lot in her first visit to Mornington last year and will again take aim at the top prize with dashing front-runner Laidback Larry. Last year a fairytale story began in the Mornington Cup when elite jumper Tuscan Fire made the transition back to flat racing with a bang, grinding his rivals into the ground with an all-the-way win to earn his connections a Caulfield Cup dream. This year will bring a mix of imported gallopers and gifted local talent from around Australia facing off in a true staying test, which has earned the Mornington Cup the tag as one of the hardest races to win on the national racing calendar. A superb undercard is headed by the listed $120,000 Hareeba Stakes (1200m), while the $250,000 Inglis Premier (1200m) will again prove a nursery for future stars of the turf when the Inglis-purchased babies race for the rich prize. The day’s features will round out with the culmination of the Mitavite Summer Challenge, the $80,000 Mitavite Summer Challenge Final (1600m), a race trainers from all round Victoria have targeted through some exhilarating heats in order to compete in the lucrative final. Experience the thrill of racing, Peninsula style at the 2014 Sportingbet Mornington Cup!

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Rails to be overhauled; houses threatened by another bushfire Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 7 February 1914 IN the next few months, the railway department will spend £79,000 in additions and improvements to various lines by relaying with heavier rails and providing extra sleepers and ballast. Among the lines affected will be the line between Mornington Junction and Stony Point, a distance of 14 miles. *** A BUSH fire that may have been attended with very serious consequences, started near the Mile Bridge, Melbourne road, on Sunday last. Several properties were threatened, but owing to the splendid efforts of a band of fire-fighters, no serious damage was done. *** IN our report of the Frankston show, a slight error occurred. Miss Q. Cameron was credited with taking second prize for best piece of plain sewing, it should have read Miss Q. Gamble. *** THE net proceeds of the concert given by Lady Madden last week in the Frankston Hall, in aid of St. Paul’s church funds, amounted to over £23. This constitutes a record in Frankston, and is highly gratifying to the guardians of the church. *** THE Hastings branch of the Australian Women’s National League held their first meeting this year in the hall, on January 29th, with a fair attendance of members present. A resolution was carried that the donation to “Central” this year be increased by 10s, making it £2. The president

read a paper by Mrs Arthur Robinson, entitled “Duties of Citizenship,” and the meeting closed with “The National Anthem.” *** MISS Betty Plowman has matriculated at the Melbourne University. She qualified for matriculation by passing in eleven subjects (two with distinction) at the Junior Public and in Group “A” at the Senior Public Examination. The subjects in the junior embraced three in Science, viz. Physics, Chemistry and Botany. She proposes to prosecute her studies at the University in the School of Architecture with the view of obtaining the University Diploma on that subject. *** MR J. A. Middleton, who for the past 16 years has been in the employ of Messrs A. Nunn and Sons, Somerville, has been appointed manager at the Federal cash store in Mornington. *** THE anniversary social of the Tyabb Methodist Church is advertised to take place in the Tyabb Hall on Friday, February 13. A good programme has been arranged, and the Somerville choir will render the cantata “A Day With The Lord.” Owing to the length of the programme, patrons are requested to be punctual. *** THE death occurred at Frankston on Wednesday evening of Mrs Halford, mother of Mrs Bath, of Frankston. The deceased lady has been ailing for some time, and her death was not unexpected. Our readers will join with us in extending heart-felt sympathy to Mrs Bath and other relatives of the

deceased in their time of bereavement. The funeral took place on Thursday, the remains being interred at St. Kilda.

The defendant said that he had forgotten that his ticket was out of date, and when called back by the station master, he had offered to pay excess.

*** AT the Mornington police court on Thursday, before Messrs Vivian Tanner, P.M., George Flood, A. E. Bates, J. D. Somers, and J. G. Barrett, J.’sP., Thos. Scott Berwick sued Harold Miller for 19s 9d, claim for meat sold and delivered. Order for amount with 2s 6d costs. Constable Banks v. John Howell, charged with driving a motor cycle in Main street, Mornington, on 26th January, at a speed dangerous to the public. The defendant, who did not appear, was fined 40s, in default distress, and ordered to

produce his licence for endorsement. Helen McMahon v. Thos. O’Connell. Defendant was charged with perjury committed at Mornington on 18th September, 1913, in connection with the sale of a pony. Major McInerney appeared for the prosecution, and Mr W. S. Cook for defendant. After a good deal of evidence on both sides, the Bench were unanimous in dismissing the case, no costs being allowed. *** THE bathing fatality which occurred at Sorrento on 17th January was investigated at the Morgue on Saturday by the City Coroner, Dr. R. H. Cole. The facts have already been published. Charles Rutherford Browne, 39, single, manager of Mangaroon Station, Western Australia, dived into shallow water, and, striking his head heavily on the sandy bottom, was killed. Allan Phillip McLean, auctioneer, Claremont avenue, Malvern, said that he and Mr Browne went bathing in a private bath at Sorrento, and arranged a temporary springboard. In diving Browne appeared to over-jump the board, and he fell head foremost into about 4 feet of water. When he came to the surface he was dazed and breathing heavily. He died before medical aid was obtained. Constable R. Brennan said the insecure way in which the board was fixed contributed to the accident. A verdict of accidental death was returned. *** DURING the week, three highly esteemed families of Mornington, who have recently disposed of their properties, have taken their

departure, and the best wishes of the community has been extended to them. Mr and Mrs A. McLellan intend residing in the Metropolis, and their property in Main street has been purchased by Mrs Williams. Mr G. T. Jenkins, who for many years has been in the employ of Mr R. Nunn as manager at the Federal cash store. and who recently purchased a business at Maffra, left for that town on Thursday. Mr Jenkins’ property was purchased by Mrs S. Bradford. Mr and Mrs Board have taken up their abode at Mentone, and their villa in Barkly street has been purchased for the Presbyterian manse. *** A DEPUTATION of dairy farmers on Wednesday requested the Railway Commissioners to permit milk from Carrum to be conveyed to the city by the 8.28 a.m. train, as was the custom some time ago. This train is the through train from Mornington, and owing to the department’s refusal to permit milk from Carrum to be carried by it, the deputation stated that it could not be despatched before 9.46 a.m., and thus arrived in the city during the hottest part of the day. As a result, losses were being sustained by the farmers, and the city venders were complaining of the bad condition of the milk. The Commissioners said they had refused to carry milk from Carrum by the 8.28 a.m. train in order to prevent delaying passengers, but nevertheless the milk was landed in the city by the 9.46 a.m. train as was milk from other districts. Therefore there was not much cause for complaint. However, they would give the request consideration.

FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

True tales of a ‘tin eater’ By Stuart McCullough SECRETLY, I am ashamed. I watch others eat their meals with knives and forks, and feel something of a pang, wishing that I, too, could accept the conventional approach to eating a meal. But it’s too late for me. Years of training mean that I must take the road less travelled and consume my meals, not at the table with a fistful of cutlery, but in the pantry and directly from the jar. For I choose to consume my ingredients not in combination but one at a time. For I am a tin eater, plain and simple. The life of a tin eater is one filled with subterfuge and stealth. Having two brothers and two sisters meant there was very little I could do that escaped detection. For some reason, siblings feel oddly compelled to announce everything you do at a volume somewhere just below “air raid siren” and a pitch slightly beneath dog whistle. You could be forgiven for thinking in such a harsh environment that I’d be unable to get away with anything, but that would be to underestimate the inexhaustible nature of human ingenuity. We’d be sitting together in the lounge room, all five us, watching a movie. Without so much as a word, I’d attempt to slip out of my chair. I say “attempt” as the seat in question was not the conventional four-legged variety but a beanbag. It’s a scientific fact that getting out of a beanbag is akin to attempting to break a bear hug executed by an actual bear. You can no more slip out of a beanbag

than you can throw a tennis ball and land it on the moon. Getting out of the upholstered, velour quicksand required you to roll over several times to the floor before pushing yourself to your feet. At first, my brothers and sisters would say nothing. I would then make my way to the kitchen and begin a process I like to think of as “visual grazing”. This involved a full reconnaissance of the pantry.

For many families, the pantry is an expansive area that permits you to observe all the food your family has to offer. Ours, however, was something of an afterthought, squeezed into a space that was originally intended for a broom cupboard. The first challenge, however, was to open the door without alerting my siblings. I am sure that we possessed oil. Given that we had a shed that preserved everything including a used

plaster cast from when I broke my leg, there was bound to be a can of WD40 somewhere. And yet, for some reason, the hinges of our pantry were forever squeaky. To open it was to unleash a sound that resembled a choir of mice after someone had poured a bucket of cold water on them. Perhaps that was exactly the point. No matter where our parents were, they could instantly tell when the pantry was being violated. My father could be off in the back paddock and using a chainsaw, but would cease as the sound of a mouselike chorale drifted across the valley. If it was impossible to put anything past someone in the back paddock, there was no hope of eluding those in the living room. Using the kind of care normally associated with detonating an explosive, I would begin to prise open the pantry. No matter how careful I was, it would never fail to emit a tortured squeal. At the very first note, there would be a challenge from my brothers and sisters. The words “what are you doing?” rang out like a demand to stand and deliver. In truth, they knew full well what I was up to. The only thing more ridiculous than the question was my standard response of “nothing” when, in fact, nothing couldn’t be further from the truth. When faced with all manner of foodstuffs, most people would be tempted to create some kind of snack or meal. I, on the other hand, thought this would simply delay the inevitable. Rather than mess around with the

black magic that is actual cooking, I preferred to jemmy the lid off various containers and eat directly from the tin. The trick was to complete stuffing my mouth before curiousity got the better of one of my brothers or sisters who, having failed to be satisfied by my earlier response of “nothing”, would decide to come to the kitchen to personally investigate. Milo was a particular favourite. Truth be told, I ate more of it from the tin than I ever did as a drink. Sometimes our parents would mess with the formula and purchased drinking chocolate instead. Although the drinking chocolate was exquisitely tasty, the power was much finer and meant that if you were to breathe in at the wrong time, your throat would convulse, causing you to choke and a small cloud of chocolate drinking powder to burst over your lips like an eruption from a long-dormant volcano. Truth be told, some of the finest meals I ever ate were consumed behind the pantry door. It’s something I’ve since given up. Whether that’s because I grew out of it or because our current pantry doesn’t have a door, and is all the less thrilling as a result, I truly couldn’t say. Whenever I go to a restaurant, I am often left to lament that the meals arrive fully prepared and guests are denied the elicit joy that comes from sampling the ingredients individually while the chef is in the back paddock. www.stuartmccullough.com

Performance LISA McCune will play Anna Leonowens in the Tony Award-winning Australian production of The King and I, which is being revived this year by John Frost and Opera Australia. The King of Siam will be played by by Jason Scott Lee. The King and I also stars Chinese-born Australian opera singer Shu-Cheen Yu as Lady Thiang and Adrian Li Donni as Lun Tha, and is directed by Christopher Renshaw, with scenic design by Brian Thomson, costumes by Roger Kirk and lighting by Nigel Levings. John Frost’s now legendary Australian production premiered at the Adelaide Festival Theatre in 1991. Directed by West End director Christopher Renshaw and starring Hayley Mills as Anna, it played to sell out houses around the country. In 1996, the production went on to win four Tony Awards on Broadway: Best Revival of a Musical, Best Performance by an Actress in a Musical (Donna Murphy), Best Scenic Design (Brian Thomson) and Best Costume Design (Roger Kirk). The Broadway season was followed by a US tour. In 2000, the production opened at the London Palladium with Elaine Paige as Anna where it played for nearly two years before embarking on a UK tour. Christopher Renshaw returns to Australia to revive the production, with its stunning Thai-inspired set design by Brian Thomson, sumptuous costumes by Roger Kirk and lighting by Nigel Levings. Susan Kikuchi will recreate the original Jerome Robbins choreography as well as the choreography of her mother Yuriko who appeared in the 1951 Broadway production and the 1956 film. The King and I opens in at the Princess Theatre, Melbourne in June. Tickets 1300 111 011. www.thekingandimusical.com.au *** Many TV fans are mourning the deaths of Russell Johnson, who played Professor in Gilligan’s Island and

Dave Madden, who was the band manager Reuben Kincaid in the TV series The Partridge Family. Canadian-born Madden also appeared in Bewitched, Barney Miller, Happy Days, The Love Boat and Fantasy Island. Russell Johnson also appeared in 77 Sunset Strip, Gunsmoke, Rawhide, Wagon Train and The Twilight Zone. Johnson admitted he had trouble finding work after Gilligan’s Island, having become typecast. *** AUSTRALIA’S favourite album of 2013 was a Pink album released in 2012. Pink’s The Truth About Love has been Australia’s highest-selling album for two years straight, selling more than 560,000 copies in Australia, with about 200,000 of those sold last year. Pink’s album spent four weeks at No.1 this week and 35 weeks in the Top 10. It never left the Top 40. Pink also scored the year’s highest selling music DVD with her The Truth

about Love concert, filmed in Melbourne. 2013’s second biggest seller was Katy Perry’s Prism which sold 179,000 copies in 10 weeks. The biggest selling original Australian album released in 2013 was Russell Morris’s Sharkmouth, at No.33, which sold steadily all year despite little radio support. *** Neil Diamond, one of the world’s premier recording artists, internationally renowned and record-breaking concert performer and revered songwriter has signed a long-term recording agreement with Capitol Records. This historic contract unites Diamond’s complete Columbia, Uni/MCA and Bang catalogues of recorded music for the first time, encompassing the artist’s entire body of work, from with his earliest recordings through the present day. The agreement also returns the artist to Universal Music where he achieved numerous hit singles and albums with

the company’s labels in the late-1960s and early 1970s. Diamond – a Grammy winner, Kennedy Center honoree and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – has sold more than 128 million records worldwide, and garnered an astounding 72 multi-Platinum, Platinum and Gold album certifications in the United States alone. Diamond is currently writing songs and planning to enter the studio to record a new album later this year. Concurrently, a comprehensive plan for the artist’s catalogue is being conceived and executed by Capitol and Universal Music Enterprises (UMe), in conjunction with Diamond and his management team. Throughout an illustrious and wideranging musical career, Neil Diamond has had 37 Top 10 singles and 16 Top 10 albums in the USA. His most recent studio releases, 2008’s Home Before Dark debuted at No.1 in the U.S. and UK, and 2010’s Dreams, a collection of Diamond’s favourite songs by other composers from the rock era, debuted in the Top 10 and was highly critically acclaimed. www.theinsoundfromwayout.com *** ON 7 February 1964, The Beatles arrived at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport, greeted by scores of screaming, swooning fans who rushed the gate to catch a glimpse of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr as they took their first steps on American soil. Two nights later, on Sunday 9 February, 74 million viewers in the US and millions more in Canada tuned in to CBS to watch The Beatles make their American television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of these history-making events, The U.S. Albums, a new 13-CD Beatles collection spanning 1964’s Meet the Beatles! to 1970’s Hey Jude, was released on 17 January by Apple Corps Ltd/Capitol.

then bad mouthing to others; almost all chasing their tails. As Thoreau said: “Let us spend one day as deliberately as nature and not be thrown off the track by every nutshell that falls on the rails.” Another said: “To be busy with toys is small purpose.” Seneca replied: “Better to do no end than nothing.” Psychiatrist Glen Wilson did a multitasking study concluding the brain function addles. Doubtful, though likely, if watching porn. *** DIDN’T Billy Snedden get into a bit of bother when overseas years ago or am I getting him mixed up with Malcolm Fraser? I’ll bet he or they received first-class consular help. If you’re tripping off overseas make sure the Yanks like you in addition to your health insurance. David Hicks, Mamdouh Habib and Julian Assange appear to have incurred the wrath of our government in line with USA thinking. Even Greenpeace activist Colin Russell’s treatment appears to stem from a political situation. It would be nice to think all Australians who get into bother overseas are treated equally. It will never happen but we ordinary people like to have dreams. Maybe it depends how my ASIO mates look at it? Is there a country in this world where

anti-terrorist laws are not abused? The law is maintained by humans. If you watched the SBS program Persons of Interest you will have seen ASIO in action from 1945 onwards and the bully boys naive handling of innocent Australians. It’s one thing to check on persons endangering our country’s security but why all this concentration on family and friends? Puffed-up prefects of the wowser variety. There’s always been a list. No more communists, so other than real or suspected terrorists who else is on the current list? Leftists? Activists? Surely not socialists? Nobody’s nose knows. *** I SOMETIMES wonder about our politicians. Other than the odd fiddle with their travel expenses we never hear of any scandals of the “who’s on with who?” variety. There has to be impervious agreement between the Canberra press and pollies. Common sense assures us of muchos philandering. The French agreement was apparently broken two years ago, now French president Francois Hollande is supposedly having it on with an actress making worldwide headlines; no more privacy protection there. Yes, they’re a boring lot in Canberra but human nature rarely takes a holiday. My instincts tell me Christopher

Pyne in Canberra and locally Peter Ryan have no fears of gossip. Nothing even on those crooked state Labor powerbrokers in Sydney? *** Let’s hear it for Frankston. First from three former mayors followed by letters from residents on the joys of living there. I’ve always liked Frankston, not Geoff Shaw obviously, nor the way the shopping precinct has been mauled by design, nor the impossibility of getting a parking spot near the hospital or the train station but the rest is good stuff. I laughed when reading in The Age of the disrespectful comments if one mentions living there. I lived there for 5 years, Bonbeach for 7 years and currently reside in Rye. The Mornington Peninsula is wracked with a subtle form of snobbery but surely no different than anywhere else? I’m betting Navy types will think they are superior to Army types and so on. Never to be taken seriously; it’s a joke. *** Super funds aside, there are certain other things which shall forever remain a mystery. The enthusiasm of many Australians for Halloween and 20/20 cricket? Then there’s the ever constant question of the reason why so many poorer people (I’m a paid-up member) honestly believe Tony Abbott’s government will govern in their interests? Unbelievably some are smokers and

The Beatles’ American albums differed from the band’s UK albums in a variety of ways, including different track lists, song mixes, album titles, and art. The albums are presented in mono and stereo, with the exception of The Beatles’ Story and Hey Jude, which are in stereo only. Collected in a boxed set with faithfully replicated original LP artwork, including the albums’ inner sleeves, the 13 CDs are accompanied by a 64-page booklet with Beatles photos and promotional art from the time, as well as a new essay by American author and television executive Bill Flanagan. For a limited time, all of the albums (with the exception of The Beatles’ Story, an audio documentary album) will also be available for individual CD purchase. A Hard Day’s Night (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack), The Beatles’ Story, Yesterday and Today, Hey Jude, and the US version of Revolver make their CD debuts with these releases. www.thebeatles.com *** TOP 10 ALBUMS 1.

A Grain of Salt IT’S all good news readers. Petrol at $1.50 a litre, prices up on electricity, water, everything and anything, and our mate Kevin Andrews is having a close and justifiable look at welfare payments. A bonfire for shareholders and big business and we are burning up, but worry not. Eventually, interminably, we will get through it. Hope springs eternal if we live long enough. Buy up big on baked beans and spaghetti; walk to Woolies. If you smoke, buy tobacco and get out the potato peelings. If you fancy a beer, try the home brew. Bread and dripping. We on the peninsula look lovingly to the day after Australia Day and the exodus; a small ray of sunshine. How sweet it is. *** I HAVE an unsettled mind - pretty good at some things but no one particular skill. It provides me with petrol, without which the car stands still. Spending an hour at a cafe forms part of my busy schedule, as does drinking two or three pots daily. I don’t have much money but I don’t require a lot. I read the newspapers for comedy. Vain people chasing their fortune power - some succeeding for a time, walking tall or shuffling along, hoping the next person doesn’t catch up, or hiding when they are passed and

pensioners, having years of a Liberal Government behind them as clear evidence? If it wasn’t so funny it would be sad. Two of my struggling friends read The Australian newspaper, ever wary of socialists? During our last exchange I offered them the opportunity to look under my bed; declined. *** The wowsers are off the leash with the alcohol question. Expect the odd piece of questionable research (warped statistics) on the evils of drinking from questionable sources...Once it hits you of the need to be liked and you recognise your own dark side along with everyone else’s, everything falls into place...Who was the fool who suggested drivers over 70 should be subject to annual driving tests?...“Two Wongs don’t make a white” said Arthur Calwell; nothing has changed apparently...”Summertime and the yobbos are easy, hoons are jumpin’ and the bogans are high; the louts are rich and the creeps are good lookin’; so hush little baby, don’t you cry” [Michael Leunig, genius]...hooroo... www.ello8.com

Mounties winners after first day PROVINCIAL By IT GULLY MT Eliza has already taken first innings points against Long Island in MPCA Provincial cricket. In a must-win game for Mt Eliza to ensure it stays in touch with the top four, the bowlers stepped up and tore through the Long Island batting. After winning the toss and electing to bat, only three Long Island batsmen made double figures in a team total of 78. Aaron Paxton opened with a top score of 25, while Michael Chaplin contributed 15 and Peter Connell 14. Justin Bridegman and Paul Hartle were both dismissed without contributing to the scorecard.

The day certainly belonged to the bowlers. Robert Maskiell had his best return for the season with 4/20 for Mt Eliza, only the second time this season he has taken multiple wickets. Sam Creffield was just as damaging with 3/36 from 13 overs while Lyle House finished things off with 2/12 from 4.5 overs. In the chase, the home side got away to a shaky start, losing openers House and Ben Tracey early, but Tim Strickland and Chris Wisbey got things back on track and shared an 84run partnership. Another mini collapse, though, saw the Mounties slump to 6/145 by the end of the day’s play. It was still enough to give them the

points and it’s highly unlikely that there will be a reverse outright. Crib Point escaped jail against Langwarrin, thanks largely to Adam Kuelen (37), Luke Chapple (58), Ricky Thompson (25) and Warren Herrington (31). The Magpies were in all sorts of trouble early in their innings, reeling at 5/29 at one point. Left-arm opening bowler Matt Davie got the Kangas away to a flier, taking the first five wickets of the match. At one stage he had figures of 5/17, and finished with 6/40. Dwayne Doig bowled 28.4 overs and finished with 4/40. Crib Point batted for 75 overs, which netted 194 runs. A great result for the Pies considering where they

were at one stage. Crib Point then got the start it was looking for with the ball, snaring the wicket of David Ross. Langwarrin will resume next weekend at 1/7. Mornington continues to rackup the runs, this time scoring 8/293 against Heatherhill. The Hills are no chance in this one. Moorooduc already has victory against Rye. The Demons batted first and made just 100, Darren Groves top-scoring with 25. Sushant Gupta picked up 4/23 for the Ducs and Bobby Wilson snared 3/35. With the bat, the Ducs were in real trouble at 5/40 with Wilson back in the sheds, but Jarryd Bailey (49

not out) and Nick Williams (37 not out) resurrected the innings and took Moorooduc to 5/129 at stumps. A massive 139 from Baxter skipper Daniel Warwick has his side in the box seat against top-of-the-table Sorrento. Warwick almost played a lone hand in the innings, although Travis Sawers was back in the First XI after a long spell in the seconds and contributed 36. Ryan O’Connor was the pick of the Sorras’ bowlers with 4/89, while Nick Davern claimed 3/73. The match between Mt Martha and Peninsula Old Boys is sure to go down to the wire after the Reds scored 248 on Saturday.

Relief as Boneo reverse a losing trend DISTRICT By IT GULLY BONEO said goodbye to its ordinary batting this season and racked up a massive 301 in 74.1 overs against Main Ridge on Saturday. Knowing the visiting Boneo had been ordinary at best this season with the bat, Main Ridge did not hesitate to send them in after winning the toss. Boneo skipper Leigh Lowry (18) has shouldered a lot of the scoring responsibility but on Saturday those around him dug deep. Jack Fowler opened with 60, Ryan Jellie hit 42, Glen Peterson (69) made it two half centuries in three matches and Cameron Williams clubbed 41, which included four sixes. Jordan McCully was the pick of the Ridge bowlers with 4/47. With the ball, Boneo couldn’t have asked for a better start either, Jellie picking up opener Jacob McWilliams for a duck. The home side will resume at 1/2. The teenagers who Carrum rely so heavily on to take wickets were asked to resurrect a poor day with the bat against Flinders. When teens Jackson Fry and Lachy Dobson were bought to the crease together on Saturday, the Lions were in all sorts of trouble at 9/78. When Dobson lost his wicket for 76, the scorecard read all out for 184 off 79 overs. While Dobson did the bulk of the scoring, Fry hung around and contributed 29. Earlier, Matt Burns had torn through the Carrum batting line-up. He finished with 6/48 from 29 overs. The Sharks ended up using eight bowlers in a bid to separate Dobson and Fry. Jon Guthrie hit an unbeaten 109 and Delacombe Park skipper Chris Brittain hit 100 against Baden Powell. The Parkers finished the day at 6/313, far too many for the Braves to track down. Anjula Perera was the best of the Braves bowlers with 4/67, while Nathan Rice claimed 2/68. Seaford Tigers have already won their match against Ballam Park. The Knights batted first and made 149, before the Tigers belted a quick-fire 5/191. Expect a massive attempt at an outright on day two. Somerville will be looking for an outright win against Seaford. The Eagles batted first on Saturday and compiled 6/311, Keith Burdett winding back the clock with an unbeaten 74, Andrew West scoring 60, Justin Allsop 54 and Ben Delaney 32. Damien Lawrence was the best of the Seaford bowlers with 4/98. After declaring its innings, Somerville ‘s bowlers snared 3/20, Allsop picking up 2/0.

Hastings lets Pines off the hook Plenty of fight in HASTINGS CC By Greg Bradshaw HASTINGS Firsts travelled to Pines to take on the second-placed team for a must-win game. Pines won the toss and batted in trying heat. Issy Dias and Mitch Floyd opened the bowling with Dias making the first breakthrough at 19. With the bowlers operating in short spells, Luke Hewitt claimed the next two wickets and when Tim Birch claimed the number four, Pines was struggling at 4/51. Pines then put together a 55-run partnership before part-time spinner David Hull took his first wicket, 5/105. Ben King was introduced with immediate impact, three wickets quickly reducing Pines to 8/114. The tail wagged with the next pair contributing 40 before Dias claimed his second wicket, 9/154. Three runs later they should have been all out but a dropped catch on the boundary proved costly as the last pair smashed another 80 runs to give Pines a very competitive 234 off 75 over. At the end the heat took control with minds wandering, heads down and the Pines batsmen won the day. King bowled superbly, finishing with 4/51 off 17.4 overs, Dias 2/39 off 13 overs, Hewitt 2/44 off 12 overs, Hull 1/20 off 7 and Birch 1/40 off 16 tight overs. Hastings faced five overs, scoring 10 runs for no loss. The season is on the line and Hastings will need to bat 80 overs this weekend to win. The Seconds also played Pines, separated by percentage on the ladder, with both teams needing to win to stay in touch with the top four. Winning the toss, Hastings batted and capitulated against a swinging ball bowled in the right areas. At drinks the score was to 6/20, which became 8/33 shortly after before Jake Ryan and Steven Robb shared a 77-run partnership, 9/110, then all out for 117. Robb was undefeated on 39, and Ryan made 28. No other batsman reached double figures. Pines had 44 overs to bat and smashed 4/201. Catches went down left, right and centre and with them any chance of winning the game. Thirds played second-placed Skye, won the toss and sent Skye in to bat. With a nice sea breeze, the bowlers swung the ball with great effect as Stephen Thomson skittled the stumps twice in his second over, 2/6. Every Skye batsman came out playing shots from ball one, which was the downfall of many. Kayne Lewis bowled well with the wind behind him and claimed two wickets, both caught at slip by Lachie Trench, 4/54. Chris Helweg and Chris Dalmau kept the pressure on, both claiming wickets, 7/109 at tea. Thomson was reintroduced after tea, only bowling 10 balls, claiming two wickets, while Dalmau took the other and Skye was all out for 137 off 38 overs. Thomson finished with 4/23 off 8.5 overs, Lewis 2/25 off 12, Helweg 2/44 off 10 and Dalmau 2/35 off 7 overs. Hastings set about the chase with Scott Williams and Trench opening. They put on a partnership of 76 before Trench was stumped for 19. Williams reached 54no at stumps with Hastings on 1/99 and in a good position for

victory. Fourths played Ballam Park and were sent into bat. Losing both openers it was 2/31 before Pat Foy (25) and Stuart Burrows (45) took the score to 3/98. The wheels fell off as Hastings was reduced to 7/120 in the 28th over. Luke Gibbons (25) and Andrew Jeffs (12) took the score to 156 before both were dismissed. Hastings was bowled out for 159 in the 36th over. Ballam Park batted but fell to 4/53 in only the 11th over but runs continued to come and they bashed their way to 7/163 and a win. Andrew Finn toiled hard, taking 3/51 off his 10 overs, Stephen Lewis 2/42 off 10, Matt Sawosz 2/10 and Gibbons 1/26, which included a 12-ball over. Losing drops the side from top to third with three teams breathing down their necks and four rounds to play. Under-16s played Mt Eliza and batted. Having lost Mason Mail with a broken finger, it was left to others to step up and a run spree followed with the side scoring 5/272 off 44 overs. Openers Archie Lobato and Brodie Prestage put on a brilliant 122 before Prestage was dismissed for 56. Another wicket fell quickly before Aaron King joined Lobato and they continued the run spree, putting on 133 for the third wicket. When King was dismissed for 79, it was 3/258. On 99, Lobato played across one and was bowled one short of his first 100. Under-14s played top-placed Mt Martha in a weather reduced game of 30 overs a team. Hastings batted first and amassed a competitive 9/159. Shelby Lothian-Burdett continued his good form, making 55no, Alex Walters was solid with 27, Harrison Jansz improves every innings and opened with made 16, and Corbin Overton made 13. Under-12s played Crib Point and made 5/131. Only one wicket was taken by a bowler, four boys retiring to give teammates a bat. Patrick Wilson continues to plunder attacks and retired on 21, Devlin Webb 20no, Thomas Buckley 18ret, Matt Dodd 15ret and Traye Gent 11ret. Under-10s finally played their first game since Christmas, against Baxter. Hastings made 4/53 and Baxter 5/18. Coming events: Sunday 16 February, Sandown Greyhounds bus leaves at 12.45pm sharp. Friday 7 March, junior presentation night.

Panthers’ bowlers SUB-DISTRICT

Frankston YCW is just 36 runs shy of victory against Dromana. The Hoppers batted first and made just 131. YCW will resume at 0/95. Tootgarook scored a monstrous 407 against Skye. Tyabb has set Carrum Downs 255 for victory. The Yabbies batted for 75 overs while the Cougars used eight bowlers for the afternoon. Josh Spittal was the best of them with 3/25 from 6.4 overs, while Chamara Perera claimed 2/45.

By IT GULLY PEARCEDALE showed plenty of fight in its match against Balnarring. In a must-win game for the Panthers, they performed terribly with the bat, bundled out for just 115. Matt Cousland top-scored at the top of the innings for Pearcedale with 26, and skipper Kaine Smith (18) and Pat Gamble (19) did their best to take the score to three figures. The Panthers then needed to produce something special with the ball if they were any chance of defending 115. Shayne Gillings, Chris Dew and Kaine Smith all brought their best to the pitch, Gillings snaring 3/12 from 10 overs, Dew 2/28 from 10 overs (as well as a run-out) and Smith grabbing 1/11 off six. Balnarring will resume this week in big trouble at 7/52. Rosebud has placed itself in a wonderful position to upset the all-conquering Red Hill. The Buds batted first and although they didn’t bat their overs, still scored 166. Matty Maher top-scored for the Buds with 55 and Jason Nagel contributed a timely 32 batting at number 10. Ross Corfield was the best of the Hillmen bowlers with 3/18 off 14 overs, and Nick Wood claimed 2/11. The Buds bowlers then took the Hillmen apart, picking up 4/68 in 18 overs. Simon Dart (27) and Andrew Brown (23) are both back in the sheds, as are openers Riley Shaw and Ken Sullivan. James Magee and Brian Doughty each took two wickets for Rosebud.

FRANKSTON Bombers has appointed last year’s Under-18 coach Ben Hall as its senior coach. The appointment came after the resignation of Duncan Proud, who quit the job after just one season. Proud said that he resigned for “personal reasons”. He said leaving had nothing to do with the fact that between 15 and 20 players have left the club. Nathan and Ryan Lonie, Shaun Wilkey, Shane Vandervalk, Haydn Moore, Brian O’Carroll, Luke Lewis and a host of under-18 players are among those to leave. Proud said he would stay with the Bombers as a player in 2014.
