Seachange for doctors HASTINGS Central Medical Centre opened its doors in January this year when Dr Shamaila decided to relocate from Dandenong to work at Hastings, which resulted in the re-opening of a surgery that served the community for more than 25 years. Dr Shamaila has worked hard over the first half of the year as the medical centre’s sole GP but has hoped to attract more GPs to work alongside her to take off some work load from her shoulders. At last after many months’ effort, it was exciting to see two new doctors join the surgery from July this year. Dr Samreen and Dr Zeeshan, who decided to move down to Hastings from Queensland, are a lovely couple with two gorgeous kids. Both Dr Samreen and Dr Zeeshan have years of experi-

ence under their belts. Dr Samreen is about to complete her diploma in obstetrics and gynaecology and Dr Zeeshan has extensive experience in emergency medicine. Both have interests in Aboriginal health and chronic disease management. With this addition of two new GPs, the centre hopes to better serve the community looking after their health needs. “We also thank the community in general and our patients in particular who joined us in welcoming them to this beautiful town of Hastings.” The Hastings Central Medical Centre is accepting new patients and appointments with both male and female GPs are available. The surgery is at 5/53 Victoria Street Hastings (adjacent to the Coles car park) and is open 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday. Phone: 5979 1801.

You don’t need to travel far to see a familiar face TRAVELSCENE Westernport has relocated to its brand new premises at 87 High St, Hastings (next to Vinnies). Having been in the Ritchies arcade for 28 years, the move for the local family-owned business to the main street has given them a great street presence. Andrew, Michelle and Anne provide clients with individually tailored itineraries, using their combined travel industry experience of more than 50 years. “We are delighted with our new office. It is so bright and new! We have had so many compliments from our clients. We look forward to many years in our new office turning holiday dreams in reality,� Andrew Iredale said. As Western Port’s cruise specialist, let the team at Travelscene take care of all your travel arrangements to ensure you have a holiday remembered for all the right reasons. “We take pride in providing our clients with

expert advice and looking after their holiday from the first enquiry to them returning home. “If a client has any issue while overseas, we are available to help as part of our service to all clients. Without a travel agent, you are on your own.� You can also find them on Facebook under Travelscene Westernport. Nearly three years ago, Andrew opened an RACV shop within the travel agency. Operating as a separate business, the RACV shop opening gave the community of Western Port an avenue to speak to someone face to face about their insurance and roadside assistance needs. The shop is able to offer car insurance, home and contents insurance, and landlord insurance. In short, if the RACV do it, the Hastings shop can do it for you in a comfortable environment with good old fashioned service. So pop in and see Lisa and Di today.

Safety comes first Grieving town seeks answers By Keith Platt BETTER street lighting, protective service officers on the Stony Point train line, reporting dangerous dogs and adopting anti-hoon laws are all under consideration for making Hastings a safer place. Security cameras are already on the way for the High St shopping area and PSOs for all stations on the Stony Point line was a 2010 election promise by Hastings MP Neale Burgess. The list of security measures, including providing self-defence classes, was drawn up at a public meeting on Thursday held in the wake of the stabbing death of jeweller Dermot O’Toole on Friday 12 July. Bunches of flowers still lay outside the High St shop Mr O’Toole ran with his wife Bridget as about 200 people filed into Hastings Hall to give their sometimes angry views. “You could sense an element of tension, frustration and anger that was apparent from a couple of the questions,� Cr David Garnock said on Friday. He said the public meeting had been “a huge success�. The stabbing had left people with a “roller coaster of emotions�. “There were questions about why it happened and how to stop it. The next phase is often anger and we were braced for what could have been a tense meeting. “But when [Mr O’Toole’s son] Trent spoke, it had a very, very calming effect on the mood of the people.� Cr Garnock admitted few people at the meeting knew about the Hastings community safety working group,

Safety in mind: Trent O’Toole had a calming effect on what could have been a rowdy public meeting at Hastings. Picture: Cameron McCullough

which met every two months and had been formed eight years ago. He would discuss the list of suggested actions to make the town safer with Mornington Peninsula Shire CEO Michael Kennedy before tabling it at the group’s next meeting. Cr Garnock told The News the safety group was one of three “magnificent� community groups in the area and was looking at ways to get more people

involved. He said the group had long “pleaded� with council and other authorities to install CCTV cameras in High St. On the latest estimates, eight would be installed by October, a decision made before the stabbing of Mr O’Toole, whose shop had been fitted with its own security camera system. Cr Garnock said footage from the cameras would be recorded at Hastings

put to the safety group’s September meeting included: lobbying Metro Trains to improve lighting at railway stations on the Stony Point line; coordinating buses and trains; adopting Frankston Council’s anti-hoon policy, including dobbing in owners of illegal motorbikes and hoon riders and destroying illegal motorbikes; and drawing up strategies to report dangerous dogs.

Stolen $200,000 supercar creates media storm By Chris Brennan A MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire street sweeper found himself at the centre of a media frenzy last week after spotting a stolen luxury car in a Somerville car park. But it was the car itself that was the real focus of attention, an Audi R8 supercar valued at more than $200,000 that had been stolen a day earlier from a home 60 kilometres away in Kew. Police had appealed to members of the public to keep an eye out for the distinctive car, which had been stolen from the garage of a home in Wimba Ave, Kew, about noon on Monday, after thieves stumbled across the keys during a burglary. When street sweeper Chris Cotter spotted the metallic blue sports car in a car park on Blacks Camp Rd just after 7am on Tuesday, he quickly worked out it must be the stolen vehicle that had been the subject of multiple media reports over the previous 24 hours. “I just knew straight away that it was well out of place – it was probably worth more than a lot of houses in the area,” Mr Cotter said. “I heard about it on the radio just as I was driving into the car park and I assumed that if it was in the news, it had to be worth a fair bit of money, so I jumped on the phone to the police straight away. “But I didn’t realise just how much it was actually worth – I’ve just built my house for less than that.” Mr Cotter, 36, who lives in Clyde North, later called the radio station on which he had heard about the stolen Audi to report that he had found it. He was soon on the airwaves himself, first on 3AW then channels 9 and

10, while newspaper and online media reports around the country were saturated with reports of the “keen-eyed street cleaner” who had located the stolen sports car. “It was a bit crazy there for a while with all the media attention,” Mr Cotter said. “I just expected to report it and that would be the end of it. But it just turned into this whirlwind. You wouldn’t think a stolen car would create so much hype, but I guess it wasn’t just any old ordinary car.” The 2008 Audi R8, which is powered by a 4.2-litre V8 engine, retailed at the time of purchase for about $300,000. Mr Cotter said he’d seen the car reviewed on Top Gear. “They said it was an awesome car. It’s cheaper than a Lamborghini or Ferrari but just as powerful and drives just as well.” Detective Senior Constable Trevor

Van Styn of Boroondara crime investigation unit said the car’s owner was relieved it had been found but was still devastated by the theft of many other valuable items from his home. “He’s relieved to get it back, of course, but he’s actually had other items removed from his house like watches, jewellery, laptops and that sort of thing that were of even greater sentimental value to him,” he said. “Plus he’s still pretty upset about having his home violated and all his personal items having been gone through.” Detective Van Styn said the car did not appear damaged but was still being inspected by insurance assessors before it was returned to the owner. The car had been kept in pristine condition, and had only about 5000 kilometres on the clock.

Mums Rate The Bays Hospital Australia’s Best Private Maternity Care Medibank Private released the results of it’s annual national survey into Maternity hospital experiences in May this year. The Medibank Private Maternity Experience Index evaluated the experiences of over 1,500 patients who have given birth in private hospitals across Australia, allowing parents to rate hospital performance, environment, staff and support throughout pregnancy, birth and early parenting.

The Bays has been an Accredited Baby Friendly Hospital since 1998 The Bays is the only Private hospital in Victoria with BFHI status (2013) What is Baby Friendly? “Best practice care for all mothers” Why Baby Friendly? Gives all babies the best start in life” The Baby Friendly Health Initiative (BFHI) was developed jointly by the World Health Organisation and UNICEF in 1991. The initiative is a global effort for improving infant health by supporting mothers to breastfeed their babies. BFHI standards also ensure that a mother undecided about breastfeeding is provided with information and options, and encouraged to make an informed decision for herself and her baby. The Bays Hospital is one of those organisations committed to the care of women and their babies in the community.

Councils pressured to help business

Supporting change: Frankston MP Geoff Shaw, left, and Hastings MP Neale Burgess have backed recommendations to force more cooperation between business and local government.

6XSSO\LQJTXDOLW\SULQW GHVLJQ VHUYLFHVIRURYHU\HDUV

By Keith Platt COUNCILLORS in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula are likely to come under state government pressure to give more help to businesses. Legislative changes may also make it easier for commercial tenants to vote. The need to increase support for business at a municipal level is strongly recommended in a report by the Economic Development and Infrastructure Committee, led by Hastings MP Neale Burgess. The committee was formed in 2012 but gained its first burst of publicity last month when it was revealed its inquiries included a trip to Europe, taking in Manchester, London, Amsterdam and Berlin. Frankston MP Geoff Shaw – under investigation by the police and another government committee for allegedly misusing his taxpayer-funded vehicle – and Mr Burgess were photographed in a Manchester restaurant. The committee released its report at the end of July and Mr Shaw issued a news release summarising some of its main findings on 1 August. As chair of the committee, the government has also issued a news release quoting Mr Burgess, although as of last Friday it had not been emailed to this newspaper and was not on his website. The government release said the committee “examined the range of economic development initiatives being carried out in Victoria and how all levels of government interact with businesses and communities to achieve strong local economies�. It quoted Mr Burgess saying “the report aims to strengthen the Victorian economy by improving the way all levels of government engage in economic development strategies�. “Although some councils are performing well when it comes to economic development, it was clear that many don’t consider it a priority,� Mr Burgess stated. “Local councils are seen by many businesses as

another level of red tape, rather than an avenue for support services.� Among the report’s 43 recommendations is one calling for legislation to make it a “statutory obligation for economic development to be a priority of the Municipal Association of Victoria�. The committee said it was concerned that none of the MAV’s eight committees related specifically to economic development. During its deliberations, the committee was told by Frankston Council CEO Dennis Hovenden that community satisfaction surveys showed people believed economic development programs run by local government “have in the past been poor�. “They are critical of the performance because, in part, they do not understand the importance of why local government is involved in economic development...� The report said the “timid approach� toward economic development by Victorian councils was in “stark contrast to the robust and focused approach� of Manchester and London. Mr Shaw said he supported all 43 of the committee’s recommendations. “I am proud to have been involved with the development of this report, which has a focus on the need for stronger support for our local businesses,� he said. “It is also worth noting that while some local councils are performing well when it comes to economic development, many do not consider it a priority. “As a business owner and manager for 20 years in Frankston and now as the local member for Frankston, I would like to see the benefit of these recommendations acted upon so that our local businesses receive the encouragement and support they deserve.� The report is at www.parliament.vic.gov.au/ edic

Council backs Crib Point heritage building fix By Mike Hast THE heritage-listed former BP refinery administrative building in Crib Point is set for a spruce up as well as work to protect the place from vandalism. Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors have backed building architect Don Hendry Fulton’s submission to Crib Point Terminal Pty Ltd (CPT) seeking a greater level of maintenance to prevent deterioration. Mr Fulton also is calling for the iconic Norma Redpath bronze sculptural relief to be returned to its former location in the lobby of the building. Stair Relief was designed specifical-

ly for the building in the 1960s. CPT, jointly owned by Shell and ExxonMobil, bought the old refinery site including the building from BP in 1992. BP had closed and dismantled the refinery in 1985 when the British company rationalised its refining activities in Australia. The award-winning, Internationalstyle building has been vandalised many times over the year, Mr Fulton told councillors. Significant damage was caused last year when vandals smashed more than a dozen large windows. Mr Fulton, 88, of Brighton, has been

lobbying CPT for many years, seeking remedial works as well as erection of a fence and security lighting. “There should be CCTV, more powerful security lights and a fence around the building,” Mr Hendry told The News. Mr Fulton, who consults for a Melbourne architect part-time, said Shell had told him several years ago it would build a security fence “but nothing has happened”. “The building owner has a corporate responsibility to maintain it for the community,” he said. The heritage register states the “building features a brick ground floor

mounted on a low plinth, a cantilevered glass curtain wall on the first floor overhung by cornice-like eaves and an enclosing colonnade. It was awarded the 1966 RVIA Victorian Architecture Medal”. The building was opened in 1966 by Premier Sir Henry Bolte. The building is leased by the Western Port Oberon Association and is used as a museum. Its Otama submarine is moored nearby in Western Port, where it has been at anchor for more than 10 years awaiting permission to be brought ashore. The shire’s heritage planner, Simon Lloyd, in a report to councillors stated

the building was “listed as being of heritage significance under the shire’s planning scheme, the Victorian State Heritage Register and the National Trust’s Heritage Register”. “The building is a significant example in the development of the International style of architecture and includes technical innovations of importance at the time of its construction in 1965,” he stated. Councillors led by David Garnock and Frank Martin agreed to write to Crib Point Terminal backing Mr Fulton and informing the company it could apply for a grant under the shire’s annual heritage grant program.

Sculptural relief a Redpath classic

BP commissioned Melbourne sculptor Norma Redpath to create a large work for its building at Crib Point, a bronze sculptural relief called Stair Relief (pictured below). The National Trust states “the work is significant not only for the collaborative architectural interpretation of a creative sculptor designing for a specific site, but also for the artist’s innovative use of bronze”. “Norma Redpath used lost wax casting of significant dimension. Stair Relief is a very early example of art and architecture collaboration at the design stage of a building. The scale and set of the sculpture formed a central focus of interest for the whole interior design in its original position in the BP administration building at Crib Point. “BP was regarded as being ahead of its time in commissioning Redpath to work with building architect Don Fulton.” Stair Relief was taken from Crib Point when BP sold the building and moved to a company building South Melbourne. It was relocated to the McClelland Gallery in Langwarrin in 1997. Ms Redpath’s work is represented in 16 Australian national, regional, corporate and university collections. She won 13 major sculpture commissions, was granted eight awards and participated in two solo exhibitions, three international exhibitions, one national touring exhibition and 17 Australian exhibitions. She died in Melbourne in early 2013 after a long illness at age 84.

Archie’s school rules SOCCEROO Archie Thompson loves taking his own children to soccer training and weekend matches. He’s now using his football knowledge to develop a program aimed at promoting soccer’s fun and enjoyment to other youngsters. He was at Padua College in Mornington on Friday promoting his Archie Thompson School of Soccer, which is aimed at teenagers who are already playing at school or a club, or those keen to give soccer a try. “I have often been approached to be part of holiday and after-school soccer programs, although I have never found the one that really fitted the way I thought it could be done,” he said. “The game is bigger and better than that and I really wanted to put together something that was a terrific experience for the kids involved.” The three-day program sees training and inspiration sessions from some of Australia’s top players, including Matilda’s captain Melissa Barbieri. “I was keen to get started; hopefully we can find plenty of young people who are keen to get on-board or even get started with us,” Thompson said. The soccer camp will be held at Padua College in the second week of the spring school holidays, 1-3 October. For details and registrations, go to www.schoolofsoccer. com.au or email admin@schoolofsoccer.com.au On the ball: Soccer champion Archie Thompson shows his heading style to Padua College students.

Shire swamped with calls for help By Keith Platt MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has been swamped by calls to help finance community events. Each year the shire invites not-forprofit groups to submit requests for money, but the amount set aside in the budget falls well short of what is needed. Grant requests from 96 applications came to $646,220, while just $122,500 was set aside in the budget. Council has now agreed to finance 79 events – including regular “icon”

events – and has added $21,000 to the budget. However, details of grants have been ruled “commercial in confidence” and will not be released to the public, despite the events being run by not-forprofit incorporated community groups. In 2011, the shire agreed to pay $25,000 – plus officers’ time and shire resources – for the next three years towards running the Arthurs Seat Bay 2 Bay Ride, an event promoted as helping the Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria. Riders paid $55-$99 to enter the ride

and were encouraged to donate or be sponsored to raise money for the foundation. No part of their entry fee or the shire’s contribution went towards the charity, which received $6500 from ride organiser Cycling Events Downunder. Councillors have been told that the shire is second only to the City of Melbourne among Victorian municipalities when it comes to hosting events and festivals. “These events range from small community gatherings to larger statewide and international celebrations, all

of which play an important celebratory role in the cultural life of the Mornington Peninsula, and in local community development,” acting team leader of community and special events Luke Phillips stated in a report. He said the chosen events would be backed by the shire for three consecutive years. The events were financed separately from “larger statewide and international celebrations” such as Australia Day, Seniors Week, Children’s Week, Anzac Day and the Pet and Pony Expo. “Every community, it seems, has

something to celebrate if offered the opportunity and the tools with which to create their own event,” Mr Phillips said. “These community activities can help provide the social glue that connects community members together. For some people, these events also help alleviate social isolation and provide safe opportunities for contact with others. “Furthermore, many community events provide low-cost or free family entertainment and activities.”

Safe driver reward scheme cut

‘Second’ chef the centre’s drawcard

HUNDREDS of thousands of Victorian drivers will pay more for licences, with the state government’s VicRoads restricting safe driver discounts. From mid-July, only drivers under 26 are eligible for a 25 per cent saving. Eastern Victoria Region MP Johan Scheffer said responsible Mornington Peninsula motorists faced higher fees when renewing licences. Mr Scheffer said the state government had made significant changes to the VicRoads Safe Driver Scheme – introduced by the former Labor Government in 2006 – that rewards safe drivers with a 25 per cent discount on licence renewal fees if they have not incurred demerit points or committed other road safety offences. He said between January 2006 and February 2009, 45.6 per cent of Victorian drivers (about 603,600) who renewed their licence received a discount. “Premier Denis Napthine claimed motorists would save $20 million by getting rid of registration stickers, but days later he hit them with a $48.7 million bill with changes to the reward scheme,� Mr Scheffer said. “The government is punishing safe, responsible drivers by significantly

HE may have missed out on being named Australia’s top TV chef, but Chris Badenoch is the main ingredient tempting visitors to a “Foodie Fiesta� at Frankston. Runner-up in the first MasterChef series, Badenoch will show how to cook a “scrumptious and balanced meal� at Bayside Shopping Centre. The centre’s Foodie Fiesta runs 19-31 August and includes food “specials� and gifts with purchases. Badenoch’s food preparation lesson is being held midday to 2pm on Saturday 31 August. While competing on the MasterChef show Badenoch became known for his nose-totail techniques and cooking with beer and meat. A free fiesta booklet includes recipes, retailer offers and an event schedule. Cook-up: Chris Badenoch’s cooking techniques and recipes will be available at this month’s Foodie Fiesta.

slashing eligibility requirements for the discount to those aged 26 and under. “Higher licence fees will hurt pensioners. New licence-holders who apply for a 10-year licence won’t be eligible for the discount.� The MP said the changes would cost every motorist aged over 26 an extra $61.50 for a 10-year licence renewal and $17.90 for a three-year licence renewal. “If you are 18 and apply for a 10year licence, you will not be eligible for the discount when it is time to renew your licence,� he said. VicRoads’ director of vehicle and road user behaviour James Holgate reportedly said the discount wasn’t providing much benefit. “Half the drivers on the road got it, so it was a far hit on revenue,� he told a Melbourne radio station. Mr Holgate said the savings would go to the graduated licensing system for young drivers and would provide a better outcome for road safety. Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews said the government’s decision to cut the program was “tricky�, “mean� and “shortsighted�. Mike Hast

Fuel profits all round MRS Emu is furious. The scales have dropped from her eyes with a resounding clang. She has been duped, deceived and double-dealt, she hisses at her spouse. And all for a supposed saving at the fuel bowser. Emu was lying low until the storm passed, but she has tracked him down. “All these months,” she tells her cowering spouse in strangled tones, far more in anger than in sorrow, “I have been shopping at (supermarket name deleted) so I can get our fuel cheaper with their discount dockets. “Only to find we have been duped!” Her voice rises in a startling crescendo on the last word. Glasses rattle on the shelves. “We?” Emu notes he has been dragged into the fray. “The supermarket (which she will never patronise again, at least until next week) charges more for other items on its shelves to cover the cost of the fuel discount. I’ve been duped!” she thunders, a woman dangerously scorned. A glass topples. Any supermarket manager would be in terminal peril were they to enter Chez Emu at this moment. Emu decides this is not the time to remind her of the warnings he has been gently issuing for months about free-market retail practices – a sort-of Newton’s First Law of Retailing, which is that any price cutting must be accompanied by an equal and opposite price increase. An unequal price increase can be even more profitable than one that achieves a mere price balance, muses Emu after his spouse has gone off, spluttering and muttering, to scrutinise her supermarket receipt and decide where she will now shop. He has been listening to radio, hearing competition watchdog concerns – how quickly they become aware of dodgy practices – that this fuel discounting is endangering non-discounting supermarkets and independent fuel stations. Emu sets great store in caveat emptor – let the buyer beware – in his commercial dealings, knowing the increased caveatii facing incautious

emptorii in modern capitalism. He had heard a caller to talkback radio, responding to the competition watchdog’s concerns, relate his lucky escape from a parsnip price rort at his supermarket. Explaining how the emporium probably clawed back the fuel discount, the caller told of parsnips on its shelves priced at $11.99 a kilo. A bit high for a root vegetable, he thought. Later, investigating the wares of the shopping centre’s nearby greengrocer, he found the same humble vegetable, delicious when roasted with lamb, at a mere $3.99 a kilo. Suddenly interested, Emu sauntered to the family jalopy and plucked a receipt from the floor. Fifty dollars had bought 34.51 litres of distillate at 144.9 cents a litre. Discount: 4 cents a litre, or $1.38, rounded up to $1.40. Emu then calculated parsnips at $11.99 a kilo as opposed to $3.99 a kilo. The supermarket parsnips were $8 dearer. Deduct the $1.40 discount from that $8, and the supermarket’s fuel price discount has actually cost Mr Emu – or “we”, as she put it – a not inconsiderable $6.60. Emu also pondered the subsidy supermarkets were getting from shoppers who did not have a car. And what would happen to fuel discounts if independent fuel retailers were put out of business by the supermarket “competition”. You can take Emu’s word on the maths; no caveat necessary. His razor-edged actuarial mind surpasses that of many an accountant and bookkeeper in the matter of domestic management. But he decides to let Mrs Emu cool down before explaining it to her. Best to let battlefield smoke clear before collecting the wounded.

Golf invite: One of Peninsula Country Golf Club’s professionals practises putting while Menzies Caring for Kids president Phil Jones watches, hoping to pick up some tips.

Teeing off for charity PENINSULA Country Golf Club's annual charity drive is set to tee off again, with members of the public invited to take the opportunity to enjoy a day on the exclusive private course while chipping in for a good cause. About 300 guests are expected to attend this year’s Combined Charity Golf Day on Saturday 7 September, with funds raised going to Peninsula Health, Peninsula Legacy, the Rotary Club of Frankston North, and Menzies Caring for Kids. Peninsula Country Golf Club has hosted the event for the past 11 years, raising more than $215,000 for local orgainisations.

We’ll also have raffles, meet the professionals, barbecues, drinks carts and more,” Peninsula Country Golf Club operations manager Marcus Fabian said.

Menzies Caring for Kids is joining the event as one of four beneficaries for the first time this year. The organisation is one of the oldest charities in Victoria, assisting disadvantaged children for 150 years. Menzies relocated to Frankston in 1901. “The golf day is a great way for the community to support all of these worthwhile charities,” Menzies Caring for Kids president Phil Jones said. Peninsula Health has been involved in the event from the start, with funds raised going to Frankston Hospital. The entry fee is $75 a person. Registration will be held from 7am and 12 noon on Saturday 7 September, with shotgun starts teeing off from 7.45am and 1.15pm.

Emergency ACE: India Jones is paving the way for young volunteers.

India Jones’ emergency crusade By Chris Brennan INDIA Jones is on crusade – the Monash University biomedical science student is giving time to help at Frankston Hospital’s emergency department. In her role as a hospital volunteer, Ms Jones helps members of the community through what is usually a time of considerable distress, providing practical and emotional support to patients and their families attending the hospital’s busy emergency department. However, as a young person and aspiring doctor, the 21-year-old is somewhat unusual among the many members of the community volunteering through Peninsula Health’s Assistance and Care in Emergency (ACE) program, with most tending to be from older generations. Peninsula Health has more than 800 volunteers involved in a wide range of programs in the organisation. Many are in the ACE program at Frankston Hospital. Only 10 are aged under 25. Ms Jones said she had been thinking about how best to give back to the community and hopes her efforts will encourage other young people to do likewise. “All my friends have volunteered or contributed to their community at some point, so I thought it was my turn,” she said. “There are many young people volunteering for a wide range of organisations these days – we are a socially and environmentally conscious generation who wants to give back. However, people often go to the larger, well-known organisations. “Not that there is anything wrong with that,

but I wanted to give back to a smaller, local organisation. Frankston Hospital is perfect for me being just down the road.” With a keen interest in cardiology and obstetrics, Ms Jones plans to further her studies and become a doctor, and said the experience she had gained volunteering in the hospital was highly valuable. “Being in a hospital setting has given me the opportunity to gain some hands-on experience and to witness how things actually run in a hospital,” she said. But gaining experience was certainly not the main reason for her choosing to volunteer. “It’s really rewarding to be able to sit with people during their time of need and distress. Sometimes a friendly face and someone to talk with can make all the difference.” Peninsula Health’s community participation program manager Elaine Hillis said the role played by volunteers in the organisation was vital and she hoped the example set by India Jones would inspire other young people to consider ways they could help the community. “India is a great ambassador, raising the profile of the ACE program,” Ms Hillis said. “Peninsula Health is privileged to have such a diversity of volunteers in so many different roles, all bringing their individual skill and experience. “Consumers and carers who use Frankston and Rosebud emergency departments benefit from the invaluable emotional and practical support provided by the volunteers on a daily basis.”

The house of daily miracles By Lesley McMillan MANY people know the highlights of Hastings – the historic pier, lush green foreshore and lively High St – but there is another treasure in town little is known about. As you wander down High St on market Thursdays, selecting fresh strawberries, native plants or perhaps a leather belt, you may be oblivious to the fact that just around the corner in Victoria St lives are being changed. There is a little place in the old nursing home that I call “The house of daily miracles”. The sign out front reads Abacus Learning Centre and behind a deceptively bland facade, amazing work is being carried out as autistic children are given a better chance in life. Most of us have heard of autism these days, especially since the incidence is now quoted at 1 in 110 Australians. But unless we have a personal connection, we may not have much understanding of autism. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) describes a group of complex developmental disorders with a similar pattern of behaviour in three key areas: communication, social interaction and imaginative thought. Many people with ASD also have different ways of learning, paying attention or reacting to sensations. The word “spectrum” is used because no two people with an autism

spectrum disorder are exactly alike. Each child or adult diagnosed with an ASD is developmentally delayed, has significant difficulties participating in day-to-day life, and requires sensitive understanding and specialist support and intervention for the best possible outcome. Abacus Learning Centre’s logo shows a little kid with an abacus, that most basic of counting and learning devices. It’s symbolic of the core principals of the Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) therapy in use at the centre, where the skills a child needs to function successfully and enjoy life to its fullest are broken down to the simplest and easiest level for the child, and taught in a precise and systematic way. I know from first-hand experience the devastating heartbreak a diagnosis of autism can bring to a family. My adorable grandson Oscar was diagnosed at the age of two. Our little boy had seemingly disappeared into a black hole and no longer looked us in the eye, or even seemed to hear us when we spoke to him. He just lined up cars and spun their wheels. So it seems miraculous to us that after two years of ABA early intervention therapy at Abacus, Oscar now attends mainstream four-yearold preschool, plays beautifully with other children, talks in sentences and is embracing learning about the bigger world around him. His mum says she feels blessed and

that she’s one of the lucky ones now that Oscar’s future has a little ray of light shining on it. This little place in Hastings was the first centre in Australia to offer ABA therapy. It’s another impressive boast for Hastings. As a not-for-profit charity, Abacus funds about 20 per cent of the total cost of the therapy sessions to lessen the financial burden on families. To maintain this level of “charity”, Abacus is continually fundraising. Currently, however, the centre is concerned about its deficit and needs

support. On Saturday 7 September, a gala dinner is being held at Mornington Racecourse, with 100 per cent of profits raised going directly to Abacus. Why not “glam up” and join us for a lively evening? Matt Tilley of FoxFM is volunteering his time to host the event, which will include a live band and DJ. We would like to hear from businesses able to donate products, services and gift vouchers to auction on the night or perhaps sponsor a table. All businesses will be acknowledged and promoted at the dinner.

The children of Abacus today and in the future need you. For more information, to book tickets or donate to the Abacus Gala Dinner, contact Danielle on 0409 133 825 or email danielle@peakpt.com.au Abacus also could do with some help in day-to-day practical ways and there are lots of empty garden beds begging for loving attention. If you have time to share, call Abacus on 5979 8891. To learn more about Abacus go to www.abacuslearning.org.au

Tree amigos complete ridgy-didge biolink By Chris Brennan AFTER more than five years and hundreds of hours of back-breaking work by dozens of dedicated volunteers, a wildlife corridor has been cleared along Old Main Creek Rd in Main Ridge. It will enable vulnerable native animals safe passage between the area’s few remaining patches of remnant vegetation. Main Creek Catchment Landcare Group has been working steadily since 2008 to rehabilitate more than two hectares of roadside vegetation along a 1.5-kilometre stretch to create a corridor of indigenous vegetation. More than 100 volunteers assisted during 11 formal working bees, planting more than 650 tube plants and clearing extensive weed growth, the group’s secretary, Bernie Schedvin, said. “Their contributions really made the project possible,” Ms Schedvin said. “This sort of thing can bring a community together. We hope the critters appreciate it too.” Stalwarts from the Main Creek committee, led by the group’s president, Thomas Orr, held additional smaller working bees to deal with the dense build-up of noxious weeds, which included sweet pittosporum, holly, radiata pine seedlings, mirror bush, karamu, blackberry and agapanthus, which were gradually out-competing indigenous bushland species. But the real heavy lifting involved the selective removal of about 50 large radiata pines, which were up to 1.5 metres in width, as well as numerous sweet pittosporum. Ms Schedvin said the non-indigenous species outcompeted native trees, lowering the habitat value of vegetation and resulting in lower bio-

diversity. The tree were removed by professional contractors at a cost about $16,000. After removal of these enormous woody weeds, the group set about tidying and preparing the site for revegetation with plants indigenous to the area- trees, shrubs and smaller ground cover species as well as mulching the whole area. The results of their labour will take some years to be properly visible, but new plants should become well estab-

lished within three years, Ms Schedvin said. Ecologist Mal Legg said the area was an important habitat for a number of indigenous animal species, including dusky and agile antechinus (marsupial mouse), sugargliders, micro bats, echidnas and host of woodland birds such as yellow robins and whistlers. He said the Mornington Peninsula had experienced the extinction of many species of fauna due to pressures of feral animals such as cats and

foxes as well as clearing for housing and agriculture, and habitat had been destroyed and fragmented. Roadside vegetation, such as that along Old Main Creek Rd, is sometimes the only significant area of natural vegetation in an area and, while not ideal, can provide a vital habitat for fauna and a serve as a link between larger areas of remnant habitat. Ms Schedvin said the committee had been delighted with “the overwhelmingly positive response from local

community members, which has made them feel that all the hours of planning and physical labour have been appreciated”. Funding for the Old Main Creek Rd biolink project was provided by the Port Phillip and Western Port Catchment Management Authority, Envirofund and the federal government’s Caring for Country initiative.

From the adjacent dining area you can access the undercover timber deck that seamlessly intergrates the casual living space inside with a user-friendly ‘outdoor room’ that is perfect for any season with overhead heaters and ceiling fans. There are three bedrooms, two with built-in robes while the larger main bedroom has an ensuite and walk-in robe. A separate study adds an extra dimension to the property and could be used as a fourth bedroom if required. Packed with additional features that ensure buyers receive nothing but the best in value, there are ceiling fans in most rooms, and an economical wall-panel heater and split-system heating and cooling unit in the main living area. A fitted storage room and spacious laundry have plenty of bench and cupboard space for use as a hobby room, and there is internal access to the double garage.

Weekly Tips from Andrea & Tim - Now could be the time to invest With interest rates at an all time low and property prices more affordable, now could be the perfect time to invest for the future. With attractive tax benefits on offer, the opportunity to set up future equity now in property for your retirement is very appealing. By making wise choices when sourcing an investment property, a steady rental income stream will make holding the property more affordable and could eventually cover your mortgage re-payments. Planned with the help of your trusted accountant, when your mortgage is paid off by retirement, any income from rental returns can be used to cover living expenses. If you plan well and start early, you could have your-self set up comfortably with multiple investment properties summing up to multiple income streams for later in life. Another smart option is to look out for properties with sub-division potential where splitting the property can often significantly increase your equity with minimal outlay

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Improvements to come for Mornington jetty, Local overhaul planned Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, August 9th 1913. THE contract for extensive improvements to the Mornington jetty, costing about £1000, by the Public Works Department, is in the hands of Mr S. Patience, of Footscray. The local jetty is undergoing a thorough overhaul, a new parapet or breakwater being constructed on the outside of existing decayed timber for 90 feet, 47 new piles driven in line, and 9 new piles to strengthen the main structure, firmly held with iron tie rods. Nine double rows of new transverse beams are being placed under planking, which is also to be renovated. The work includes the extension of the existing stone and concrete wall and parapet 4ft Gin in cement at inner end of new timber breakwater, and 60 cubic yards of stone and rubble to make the wall secure. *** A SIGN of future developments is the starting of a Progress Association at Crib Point. The first thing they will ask for will be wharf accommodation, and the future of Crib Point as a deep sea port is only challenged by the fact that the Naval authorities have not enough room on Han’s Inlet, but by developing the space between Coolan Island and Crib Point, a large deep sheltered area could be obtained, which is, in view of the fact that Westernport will be the chief naval base of Australasia, absolutely necessary in the opinion of experts. *** E. C. HAMMOND’S advertisement, on page 4, tells how to guard against small pox, after vaccination.

*** THE secretary of the Frankston Tennis Club acknowledges with thanks a donation of £1 1s from Mr A. D. Box towards the Club funds. *** THERE was a splendid attendance at the Picture Show held in the Mechanics’ Institute, Mornington, on Wednesday night last, in aid of the Catholic Church debt. *** ON Sunday afternoon last, Mr W. Hailes received a double dislocation of the elbow, caused by falling from a see-saw. His injuries were attended to by Dr Somers, and he is now doing well. *** BY 12 votes to 9, the offer of a barrel of beer for inmates of Braintree Workhouse, Essex, was declined, and for the first time for many years, the paupers had no beer with their Christmas dinner. Most Boards of Guardians now adopt this wise course. *** AT the recent departmental examinations at the Mornington State School, the following pupils received certificates:- Merit-Donald Hulchins, Albert Coxhell, and Winnie Bradford. Qualifying Certificates-Percy Doherty, Keith Dreyor, Alex Hutchins, Ronald Walker, Daiy Swann, and Josephine Pitchford. *** AT a combined meeting of the Mornington Loyal Celebration League and delegates from the State Schools committees, it was decided on Tuesday night last that all arrangements for the trip to the Zoo, which is to take place next November, be left in the hands of the following delegates:- Mornington

State School, Messrs Blair and Ford; Moorooduc State School, Messrs

Things in general have been dull; the roads are in a bad state, and if councillors are going to wait until the Main Roads Board takes over the roads, the ratepayers will pray for eternal summer.

Sanders and Male; Osborne, Messrs Sherlock and Wilson; L.C.L., Messrs Ferber and Jenkins. *** MESSRS A. Scott and Co. held their usual monthly market at Tanti on Monday last, when there was an average yarding of cattle, a good attendance of buyers, and a spirited demand for all classes. Milkers to £7 5s; springers to £7 7s 6d; backward springers to £5; lines of heifers, £1 16s, £1 13s, and £1 11s; porkers, £2 8s. A truck of good quality springers, from various

owners, was bought to go to South Gippsland. *** ON Wednesday last, the second euchre party and dance in aid of the Frankston Brass Band eventuated in the Mechanics’ Hall. There was a very good attendance, and cards occupied the first part of the evening. Mr Bert Roberts, who did not lose a game, annexed the first prize, and Mrs Walser was successful in winning the ladies’ prize, while the “booby’’ prizes went to Mrs Williams and Mr Meldrum, junr. Before the dance commenced, a tasty supper was had all round, and thoroughly enjoyed. Dancing, to music provided by Mrs Millard (piano) and Mr Guume (cornet), was then indulged in, and a very pleasant time was spent. The playing of the band for a couple of the dances was very favourably commented upon. During an interval, the bandmaster (Mr E. C. Hammond) thanked the ladies for the help they had rendered the band, and hoped that very liberal support would be rendered at the forthcoming bazaar. The secretary of the function (Mrs Millard) and her committer had everything in apple pie order, and an very enjoyable evening was spent *** OUR readers are reminded of the concert and ball to be held at Hastings on Friday, the 15th inst., in aid of the Roman Catholic Church. The programme will include Irish and Scotch pipers, dancers, singers, and comedians from Melbourne, besides local talent. The arrangements for the ball are proceeding, and from appearances, those at ending should pass a most

pleasant evening. Visitors from a distance will have the benefit of a good moon both going and coming. *** THINGS in general have been dull; the roads are in a bad state, and if councillors are going to wait until the Main Roads Board takes over the roads, the ratepayers will pray for eternal summer. One fact is evident, that the public hall has faded out. The offer made to build the hall has not been carried out, and there is talk now that it would have been better to have looked the gift horse in the mouth, although advised to the contrary. If certain promises had not be made, the Bittern Hall might have been put upon a letter site by the local people. Ways and means can always he found where the future prosperity of a locality is assured. *** WE regret to announce the death of Mr Wm. Thornell on Saturday afternoon last. He was the second eldest son of Mr and Mrs Mark Thornell, who are old and respected residents of this district. The deceased has been a popular local resident. He has suffered very acutely of late, but all that love and trained nursing under medical supervision could do was not sufficient to ward off death. We extend our deepest sympathy to his parents and brothers and sisters. The funeral is at Somerville at 2 o’clock for the Frankston Cemetery, where the interment took place, the Rev. Father O’Hagan officiating at the graveside.

It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services. GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year.

HISTORY

The Bryants – A Hastings pioneering family Part Three The names of two of the more recent generation of Bryants appear quite regularly in the local papers. They are Jenny (eldest daughter of Carl and Jean) and Max (second son of Dick and Joan).

Jenny Bryant ON her 10-acre Tyabb property, Jenny Bryant has established the Koala Rescue and Rehabilitation Hospital, which cares for injured koalas, possums, kangaroos and birds. Her ‘patients’ come from all over the peninsula, including Red Hill, Arthurs Seat, Dromana, Rye and Rosebud. Jenny has been a wildlife worker since the 1970’s and estimates that only 50 per cent of

the animals that arrive at her property actually survive; so many have horrific injuries and need to be euthanised. For her service to wildlife conservation, Jenny Bryant was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in this year’s Australia Day honours list. Wildlife warrior: Jenny Bryant with one of her patients.

Max Bryant

ON leaving school, Max Bryant did a carpentry apprenticeship with Ron Fitzgerald of Somers and then worked on ship maintenance on both coastal and international vessels. Over the next 40 years, Max spent time in both the building and fishing industries. A severe knee injury sustained in his younger days when racing motor cycles forced him out of the building industry for a time. He went to Flinders Island where he ran abalone boats while sitting exams for his Maritime Masters Certificate and by 1980, he had gone into partnership in a fishing vessel catching scallop and shark out of St Helens in Tasmania. By 1981, he had joined Allied Fisheries and was eventually in charge of the company’s Victorian fleet of 11 vessels, which operated mostly out of Hastings. About 1985 Max returned to the building industry and over the next few years, he designed and built the marina at Hastings (completed in 1988), aeroplane hangars at Tyabb, and carried out hotel renovations. In the meantime, Max had taken up flying and a trip to America in the late 1980s led him to consider a development at Seal Rocks on Phillip Island. The project was completed under Max’s supervision in 1998 and the running was handed over to Seal Rocks Sea Life Centre, which was

the beneficiary of a large government settlement. During the 1990s, Max became involved in offshore power boat racing and was the navigator on a boat that set the record of 5 hours 34 minutes for the crossing of Bass Strait (Melbourne to Launceston). From the 1990s Max has worked as a project manager with a number of building companies, including the ISIS group. In 1998, Max wondered what could be done to provide jobs and give the Hastings economy a lift. At the same time, he felt there was a need to reinforce the bond between the town and HMAS Cerberus. The following year, the Western Port Oberon Association was formed and, with the assistance of the then member for Flinders Peter Reith, a submarine was procured; the HMAS Otama duly arrived in Western Port in April, 2002. After 11 years of hard work by a small team of dedicated enthusiasts, it now appears their efforts are to be rewarded; the current projection is that the submarine will be ashore in 18 months.

Western Port News 6 August 2013


The Barclays and Graydens CORALINA Bryant’s parents were John Barclay, orchardist, and Rosina (nee Grayden). Initially, the Grayden family lived in a tent on the north side of King’s Creek but then bought land further up in what became Graydens Road. Subsequently, they moved to Newhaven. After Rosina married John in 1881, they lived in the Barclay home ‘Heroville’, which was built in Barclay Crescent by James Barclay senior. It was so-named because the name of James’ boat was The Hero. This marriage linked two of the earliest Western Port families. Some information on the Barclay family was included in the story referred to previously (Who killed Jim Barclay?). Because the Graydens had left the area around the time of Rosina’s marriage, not much is known about this family. However, some old photographs have come to light during the writing of this story and they have been included as they reflect the conditions of the times.

Ode to a Selfie – by K. Rudd –

Gazing on my own reflection With loving, naked, pure affection I must have been a touch distracted As the steel on skin impacted ’Cos in an instant, before I knew it I was well and truly skewered Trickling blood, a crimson creek It struck me dumb, I could not speak!

I did it without fear or favour Just so you could sit and savour Some say in exasperation ‘This is too much information!’ But I think those folks are mistaken So take this picture I have taken Of me and my shaving cut Behold, my friends, my bloodied nut!

Yes with the blood upon my cheek I didn’t cry, I did not shriek I tore a tiny piece of Sorbent Thought, ‘Perfect time to take a portrait’ For though I’d cut myself whilst shaving I thought the moment one worth saving I saved it, yes, so I could prove That if I’m cut I bleed, like you

Some may claim that it’s unhealthy For a man to send a selfie To more than a million folks And cause them on their toast to choke Confronted with my bloodied image Haunted by my beaming visage I did it not to cause you fear But to remind you all I’m here

And in that awe-inspiring moment Where I chose to mobile phone it I did not turn to get a bandage But turned it to my own advantage For I’ve had many wounds before In bathrooms and on Caucus floor And with a click the deed was done Soon to be seen by everyone

Mirror, mirror on the wall Who can resist the siren’s call? Of joy and love and pure devotion That comes along with self-promotion The shock was not that I had nicked it But that the wound was self-inflicted So now I’ve shared the razor’s nip That’s all from me – I’ve gotta zip

I took this wounded face of mine And put the image up online Where it got a million hits I tweeted it to all the twits! I shoved it up on Instagram To show the world all that I am (Sure, for some, it would have grated But mystique’s sorely overrated)

Eurogliders are back in town

A Bard farce heading our way A FIRST-TIME collaboration between Bell Shakespeare and State Theatre Company of South Australia, brings to life one of Shakespeare’s earliest plays, The Comedy Of Errors, directed by rising star Imara Savage - national tour starts 28 June 2013. A wealthy merchant’s wife bears him identical twin boys. On the same day, a poor couple also have twins who are purchased by the merchant as servants to his sons. A shipwreck splits the family apart until, many years later, they find themselves in the same city – Ephesus; a transitory, shifty, border-town, a place of transaction, both monetary and sexual. Confusions ensue as the two sets of twins are constantly mistaken for each other. Sharp banter and comical word play lure us into a world

By Haydn Godony A SUCCESSFUL band, live and in the studio, in the 1980s, The Eurogliders are reuniting for a run of Victorian shows. “Today is quite a different time in music than it was back in Eurogliders heyday,” singer Grace Knight said from her Healesville home. “For a start, we had more venues to play – we could make a living out of being a musician or a singer.” “The advent of the pokies meant a lot of venues lost what was the ‘stage real estate’. That shut down the earning capacity for a lot of performers.” Knight not only does occasional Eurogliders tours but is these days better known for her jazzbased solo shows. “When I look at television shows that make kids stars, I find it a bit sad that for most of them the stardom is short, just a few will ever find a career out of it. “Onstage I’ve always perceived myself as a storyteller. Whether I’m singing ‘Gliders hits or something from Porgy and Bess, I choose songs because of the story and how it relates to me. I think that if it resonates with me, it will resonate

with the listener. The thing that I need to maintain is honesty,” she said. In cartoon form, on Knight’s website, she is to be seen wearing what’s become a hallmark floral dress in shades of pink. “I make my own clothes and I made the clothes for Eurogliders too. I like to create a look,” Knight said. “When I recorded the last album, Keep Cool Fool, I really wanted a fifties feel. The dress and the website are all a part of that. The look helps to put me in character. Knight will be teamed up for this tour with fellow Euroglider, long time musical partner and former husband Bernie Lynch along with a full band. “We like the sound of our voices together and he likes the way I interpret his lyrics.” The band will perform all Eurogliders’ hits including Heaven (Must Be There), We Will Together, City of Soul and Can’t Wait to See You, along with some new material, at Chelsea Heights Hotel on Thursday 8 August.

where characters are reinvented, individuality is fluid and the boundary between what’s real and what’s imagined becomes even more tenuous. “The Comedy Of Errors is a farce, but there is darkness in the light. Shakespeare raises questions of identity, sameness and difference. It’s about the fear of the other, fear of the unknown. And it’s about brotherhood and reconciliation,” said Director Imara Savage. Imara says, “I’m looking forward to touring the country with a diverse cast of 10 Australian actors who will reinvent themselves in different guises to populate the eclectic town of Ephesus.” The Comedy of Errors will be playing at Frankston Arts Centre on 17 August.

Performance THE Red Hill Country Music Festival will undergo a makeover and become The Peninsula Music Festival in 2014 with a variety of music, including rock, country, blues and jazz. A new venue has also been announced, the Morning Star Winery in Mt Eliza, for the event, which is on January 12. Stay tuned for more announcements. For more info email peninsulamusicfestival@ gmail.com *** THOUGH multi-Grammy Award winner Charley Pride was by no means the first African/American to play and sing country music – black harmonica player DeFord Bailey was an Opry star way back in the 1920s – Pride was certainly the most successful from the 60s through the 80s, racking up a string of hits including ls Anybody Goin’ to San Antone, Me and Bobby McGee, Wings of a Dove, Mountain of Love, and his biggest crossover hit , Kiss an Angel Good Mornin’. Pride has a smooth, warm voice and a genuine devotion to country music and its heritage, a combination that helped him win the hearts of even the most conservative fans, despite the fact that prejudice was still rampant throughout the American south. Pride was born in Sledge, Mississippi in 1938 and raised on a cotton farm, where his parents were sharecroppers. He began playing guitar as a teenager and was a handy baseball player, doing a stint with the Negro American League team the Memphis Red Sox. Pride started playing music in small cafes after some encouraging words from Red Sovine and eventually came to the attention of RCA record producer Chet Atkins, who signed him up. His first single was The Snakes Crawl at Night, a song about a man who shoots his cheating wife. Sony Music Entertainment Australia is releasing a new greatest hits collection from this true superstar of country music. 40 Years of Pride will be released this week, ahead of his Australian tour in November. Charley Pride is one of the biggestselling country music artists of all time. He has sold an incredible 70

million albums, including 31 gold and four platinum albums, as well as one that achieved quadruple-platinum status. On RCA Records, Charley Pride is second in sales only to Elvis Presley. 40 Years of Pride features 40 of his most loved tracks on 2 CDs. Thirty of the tracks were international country number ones. This incredible legacy is a powerful reminder that ‘The Pride of Country Music’ remains one of the greatest legends in popular music – and he’s still going strong. 40 Years of Pride is the No.1 album on the New Zealand album charts this week. Charley Pride will appear at the Palais Theatre on Saturday 9 November. Bookings: 136 100 or www.ticket-

Warner Bros Home Entertainment (WBHE) will release a limited and numbered The Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary Collector’s Edition on 2 October, featuring the 3D version of the film and more. Adapted from L Frank Baum’s timeless children’s tale about a Kansas girl’s journey over the rainbow, The Wizard of Oz opened at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on 15 August 1939. The film was directed by Victor Fleming (who that same year directed Gone with the Wind), produced by

Mervyn LeRoy, and scored by Herbert Stothart, with music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E Y Harburg. Dorothy was portrayed by a 4’11” sixteen-year-old girl who quickly earned her reputation as the world’s greatest entertainer, the incomparable Judy Garland. Ray Bolger appeared as the scarecrow, Bert Lahr as the cowardly lion, Jack Haley as the tin man, while Frank Morgan was seen in six different roles, including that of the wonderful Wizard of Oz himself. The Wizard of Oz 75th Anniversary Collector’s Edition will be released as a three-disc set that will include Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Ultraviolet versions of the film, as well as a new documentary, The Making of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, collectables and additional bonus features. Four more editions will be available separately: a three-disc 3D/Blu-ray/ DVD, a one-disc Blu-ray, a single disc DVD with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L Frank Baum paperback book and the single disc DVD. All five will contain the new documentary, extra content and Ultraviolet copy. Special features will include all previously released special features, along with the all-new documentary, The Making of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, a candid overview of how a troubled production overcame the odds to become an integral part of American culture, which features contributions from historians John Fricke and Sam Wasson, composers Stephen Schwartz and Marc Shaiman, critics Leonard Maltin and Michael Sragow, Bert Lahr’s son John as well as revealing interview clips with Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Buddy Ebsen, Margaret Hamilton and Mervyn LeRoy, among others. Visit www.thewizardofoz.com or www.warnerbros.com.au for further details. *** ROADSHOW Films has announced it will release the sequel to the highest grossing Australian R18+ film of all time, Wolf Creek, on 20 February, 2014. Excited fan boys and girls were the first to hear word of the upcoming

those voters who didn’t like the look of her for multiple reasons but really because she was simply a chooky female bringing with it a form of male hostility rarely seen before. Couple this with the ‘born to rule’ crowd who would never let a male or female from Altona become a member of their club anyway. Thus three years of lost policies degraded to a malefemale affair. *** MY son had a 50th birthday recently, taking me back to his birth, when I but a lad of 19 years, and way, way back to 1870. Charlie Godwin’s horse shied at a snake at The Gap; fell off and died after a happy marriage to Sarah and three children. Sad that Charlie died, but no snake, no Cliffie. Sarah married great grandfather William Ellen three years later; had another seven little darlings. And so the rot set in. Let’s hear it for the snake. *** PEPPER: Apparently, there’s 40 million refugees living in harsh poverty and we take 20,000 a year. In reading the letters to the newspapers and listening to talkback radio, I wonder why so many people resent the boat people? Apart from the men on the boats (bad enough) there are women and children there, desperate for a decent life, risking everything. The number of ignorant and misin-

formed reasons why these sad people should not come is frightening. The policies of both political parties since 1996 are an embarrassment and a disgrace. Young kids, desperate mothers and lost fathers. Do they want them to drown? When did drownings become ‘border protection’? Egalitarianism, multiculturalism, a fair go? Like fun! *** I HAVE coffee most mornings at Maggies and sometimes at Ricks, both good. Across the road on the foreshore is the Sea Scouts and Guides building. I have never seen one sea scout or girl guide in 13 years of drinking coffee. Is this a front for ASIO? Stranger things have happened, and if it is, what are they doing in Rye? Maybe the odd murder or two, late night violence during the six weeks of mayhem over Christmas/January, thousands of marijuana pot plants, the odd brothel appearing out of nowhere, but otherwise all is quiet. ASIO is stretching it; maybe secret men’s business? I’ll ask the ranger. Do we have a ranger? Or Geoff the barber? If Geoff doesn’t know, nobody knows. *** ONE would surely have to be a ‘born to rule’ Liberal voter to believe in the east-west tunnel idea. I assumed Doctor Den was joking with his “game changing” rubbish. At least with Peninsula Link we could see the advan-

tages alongside the disadvantages re third world public transport beyond Frankston. What’s the real story here Doc? The golden rule “privatise profits, socialise costs”? *** I’M told the SMS number for reporting anti-social behaviour at AFL matches is flashed on the big screen at Etihad Stadium before the game commences. Full marks for a classy idea. My query is, what happens if I’m next to a tatooed bruiser (male or female) who screams abuse at Collingwood and I report him? Best I attend a BonbeachChelsea match where anti-social behaviour is normal, and mostly good fun. *** I HAVEN’T bothered giving Frankston MP Geoff Shaw column space. He was doing a fine job with his own digging, albeit his slick move to switch to being an independent, luxuriating in his balance-of-power status, complete with overseas holiday. Geoff asks and the Libs comply, unlike Marty’s pluses here in the safe Mornington Peninsula seat. Anyway, the Frankston voters don’t need my help come the election. *** NEAR midnight, 22 July, Kate rushed to hospital. Anxiously, an embracement of the concept of a monarchy. Hallelujah. Welcome Master George. As long as I live (which won’t be all

It is exciting that Greg and his team have found a way to bring the next chapter in the story of Mick Taylor to the screen and we are looking forward to bringing Wolf Creek 2 to audiences in 2014”.

A Grain of Salt YOU do realise you can’t win don’t you? Someone must win, you say. Depends what winning means. Powerball, Tattslotto, the pokies, little fish are sweet? Sometimes, but the bottom line still holds: they get you in the long run and likely the little fish were yours in the first place. The rich, the super rich, go to great lengths to win, to be remembered beyond the croak. Shane Warne’s house is for sale at $15 million; luxury beyond fantasy, “not that there’s anything wrong with it”. Shane’s off to the big smoke, England, heavily into advanced narcissism in the steps of Barry Humphries et al. I like Tootgarook, croaking frog country, one street down from Point Nepean Rd, worth a fortune in 2060. Sorrento will become the new Portsea, which will disappear into Port Phillip Bay. I passed up Somers way back, direct access to the beach for a song, 1960. Also one at Bonbeach beachside; dopey Dan. I’ll pop across to the RSL; two pots, Carlton Draught, ponder. My ashes settled on buried Portsea in Port Phillip Bay? Post Mortem. Ever onwards. *** WHEN you think of human nature, apart from all those hoo haa reasons thrown up against her by Murdoch’s crowd, Lady Julia certainly started a long way behind scratch. We had all

Tigers embarrass Buds as Michie sees Blues over the line NEPEAN LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly DROMANA once against highlighted the significant difference between the top sides in Nepean League and those in the lower half of the top five. Expecting a cracking contest at Pier St Oval, Dromana held Rosebud goalless in two of the four quarters of the match. Despite the atrocious conditions for football, Dromana managed 37 scoring shots and finished with 19 goals. After the match, a couple of Rosebud players labelled their performance “embarrassing”, while Dromana coach Gavin Artico was very happy with his team’s performance. “We had four players out of the side today [Braedan Dennis, Aaron Coyle, Liam Hogan and Matt Neratzoglou] and gave some others the opportunity to make a claim a week out from finals,” Artico said. The four players who came into the side were Beau McMurray, Toby Banks, Jay Hutchison and Ryan Slocombe. “It’s going to be a tough task to fit 27 players into 22 next week but I guess it’s a healthy position to be in. “Players are really fighting for spots and I think it showed in their endeavour across the four quarters today. “There are still some areas that I wasn’t pleased with but, overall, a 99-point win against a side in the top five is a great result.” Daniel Gormley was best player on the ground with four goals, closely followed by Daniel Waddell, who dominated at centre half-forward and kicked four. The Tigers had 59 tackles in their attacking 50, largely due to the defence work of forwards including Waddell and Gormley, along with Paul Minchington and Toby Banks. Michael Hunter and Rikki Johnson dominated across half-back and Terry Wheeler again brought his own footy to the game. Brenton and Matty Payne were clearly the Buds’ best while Rhys Bancroft typically didn’t stop working. Ben Schultz booted three goals in the second quarter, but was well beaten by Jay Neratzoglou. Greg Bentley missed again with a shoulder injury while at Dromana, Christian Ongarello was taken to hospital after landing awkwardly in a marking contest and knocking himself out. There was no serious damage and he’ll miss only the one week. Hastings booted nine goals in the second quarter against Frankston Bombers on Saturday and held on to win in a thriller by five points. Blues’ coach Glenn Michie booted the match-winner with three minutes left on the clock to seal the win for the visitors. It was a bittersweet moment for Michie, who has been widely criticised by the club in recent times for his honest approach with the media. After the match, Michie said the win was one of his “proudest moments” on the footy field. Taylor Stratton and Luke Hewitt dominated again for the Blues, who led by 27 points at the major interval. The Bombers came storming back in the third and at three-quarter time, things were all locked up, 10.7 to 9.13.

Hastings had the wind advantage in the final quarter and with Tony Mirabella booting five goals and Kane Stratton and Peter Mawson working tirelessly, the visitors were able to hang on. Ryan and Nathan Lonie booted three goals each for the Bombers while Matt Harris and Jake Foster picked up the votes. It was a sensational performance from the Blues and once again highlighted that its best is good enough to match it with the top teams. It’s been a wasted year for the Blues and now it’s time to start building for 2014. Mission number one, start locking in players. There was bad news for Sorrento on Saturday with Ben Schwarze dislocating his shoulder against Rye. Making his return to the side, Schwarze went down in the second quarter and didn’t reappear. He could be out for the season, but we’ve thought this before and he’s made a miraculous return. Trevor Mattison went down with a hamstring injury and will be racing the clock to make it back. In better news for the Sharks, Myles Pitt made a return and finished with five goals. Pitt has struggled with injury at Port Melbourne this season and, with his side having a bye, asked his home club if he could play. Obviously, the Sharks were delighted to help out a favourite son. Pitt was one of the best players on the ground, while Mitch Nibbs and Troy Schwarze also dominated. Ben Holmes, Rhett Sutton and Darren Booth were the best of the Demons, along with Adam Kirkwood. Sorrento led by three goals at half-time, by 26 points at three-quarter time and ran out winners 10.15-75 to 4.9-33. Somerville held off a fast-finishing Devon Meadows, winning by 17 points. The Eagles kicked off the day in sensational fashion, booting seven goals to one in the first quarter, before the Panthers hit back in the second. However, keeping the Panthers scoreless in the final quarter was enough to get the Eagles home. Leigh Stewart has done a magnificent job with this young side all season and has led well on the ground. He was Somerville’s best on Saturday, along with Justin Farrelly and Travis Bravo. Andrew Oldmeadow, Heath Black and Chris Thorne were the best of the Panthers. Pearcedale did what it had to against Red Hill, winning by more than seven goals. The Dales booted 6.5 to a point in the opening term and by three-quarter time, the margin had blown out to 71 points. The Hillmen rallied in the final quarter through Harry Larwill, Josh and Jake Mold and Ben Maguinness and reduced the margin. Pat Cadd kicked four and Pat Heijden and Dylan Hoare three for the Dales while Ben Mitchell and Chris Fortnam dominated. Crib Point won its final home game of the year, leading all afternoon to beat Tyabb 8.16-64 to 4.5-29. Brad Davidson and Jon Flack with three goals dominated for the Pies while Luke Herrington and Dave Lawson played well. Tim McGrath and Ben Gould were the best of the Yabbies and Matty Dimkos finished with three majors.

Stonecats mauled by Mt Eliza as Kangas jump the Eagles PENINSULA LEAGUE By Andrew â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Toe Puntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kelly MT Eliza is a game clear in the top five after smashing Frankston YCW by a whopping 55 points in Peninsula League. Coming off two straight losses, the Redlegsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; place in the five was looking vulnerable until Saturday. Once again, Mt Eliza proved that its best is devastating and the Stonecats were on the receiving end of it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to remember the last time Frankston YCW was beaten by nine goals. The Redlegs set-up the win with nine goals to one in the first quarter and by half-time the margin had blown out to 50 points. With Rohan Heasley dominating the match with six goals and Josh Norman carving up the opposition through the middle, the visitors extended their lead to 14 goals at three-quarter time. By this time, things had become embarrassing for the Stonecats and they needed to make one last effort. As expected, YCW dominated the last quarter, but inaccuracy (3.12

to one point) failed to impact the scoreboard significantly. Redlegsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coach Jason Watts said he was always confident his team could bounce back against the competitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yardstick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You always worry a little when you lose two games in a row but the reality is itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really even competition,â&#x20AC;? Watts said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have systems and processes, and we just needed to get back to those. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You only need to be five or 10 per cent off your game and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to get beaten in this competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think we match-up pretty well against YCW and the boys were certainly confident in their ability to beat them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a more settled side than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had recently, I was confident we would put in a good showing.â&#x20AC;? Ryley Hodson and Tony Lester flew the flag for the Stonecats. Langwarrin proved once again its best is good enough to compete with the top teams when it easily accounted for Edithvale-Aspendale. In the second half of the season, the Kangas have beaten Mt Eliza

and Edithvale, and lead YCW at the 10-minute mark of the last quarter. The Kangas kept the Eagles goalless in the opening quarter while dominating the term with 4.7. Ruckman Matty Naughton played arguably his finest game for the Kangas while Michael Parker and Jarryd Amalfi continued their dominant form. Dan Wehner finished with two majors in another faultless display. By three-quarter time, Langwarrin had completely locked down the game, extending the lead to 50 points. The Eagles rallied in the final quarter through Stevey Mannix and Zac Muschialli, reducing the final margin to 36 points, 10.12-72 to 6.1248. Pines has grabbed fifth place on the ladder and is a game clear of six- and seventh-placed Karingal and Mornington. The Pythons got the job done on Chelsea, winning by 75 points. The win lifted the Pythonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; percentage by seven per cent. While Pines was getting the job done at Chelsea, Mornington kept its finals hopes alive and at the same

time knocked Karingal out of the top bracket. The Pythons were never in any danger of losing this one and with Jake Prosser dominating once again and Brendanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Neville and Cowell doing as they liked, the visitors extended their lead at every change. Shaun White and Guy Hendry booted four goals each. Fia Tootoo was the best of the Gulls, while Jesse Odell also worked tirelessly. Chelsea coach Paul Carbis said he was hoping to be reappointed for next season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a tough year but I believe there has been some improvement and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d really like to see where I can take the club next year,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really want to see the Chelsea Football Club successful.â&#x20AC;? The club must not wait any longer and lock Carbis in now. Mornington had a season-defining match on Saturday on its home deck and simply had to beat Karingal. A loss would have ended the Bulldogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; season. To win in such an emphatic way was super impressive.

FRANKSTON VFL DOLPHINS ROUND 17

Mornington won every quarter. In fact, the Doggies dominated every quarter. Keeping the Bulls to one goal in each of the two halves says a lot about the domination. Jackson Calder booted three goals in tough conditions, Adrian Speedy kicked a couple and a further seven players contributed on the scoreboard for the Dogs. Grant Goodall was clearly the best of the Bulls, who only had two goalkickers for the day. Bonbeach was made to work hard to get the four points against Seaford. The Sharks trailed the Tigers at half-time by three points, before booting 3.11 to 2.5 in the second hour to win 7.17-59 to 7.8-50. Jackson Casey and Dylan Jones were the catalysts in the win while Ricky Ferraro, Paul Rebeschini and Mark Tyrell continued their outstanding seasons Harry Czarnecki and Dylan Crump were the best of the Tigers, while Joe Hallal played well.

Fresh Tasmanian Scallops

By Gale Loveridge EACH year the Heritage closes for two weeks after the June school holidays. The staff head off to somewhere warm for some well-eared R and R and Mick becomes a project manager. This year has seen us lay new floors, paint inside and out, design, build and plant out a new garden and deep clean and paint out the kitchen. This has been done all by local trades people as investing in the local community is one of my strong philosophies. During the break we also catch up with friends. This reinforces the importance that, despite facebook and email, there is nothing so pleasurable than to visit with favourite people and enjoy a good laugh over food and wine. I want the Heritage to enable our customers to do this. If you are a local, please make use of our courtesy bus and come out for a meal and a catch-up with friends and family. The chef and his staff are excited with the purchase of a heavy duty mixer. Typical boys with their toys, they have great plans for housemade bread of all different styles, pizza bases and exploring what

this new machine can assist us with. It’s nice to see our young chefs get excited about making meals from scratch when the trend so much is to purchase pre-prepared food and assemble on the plate. We have decided to invest in the wages of these young people and hopefully our customers will appreciate the effort everyone has made. The Balnarring Business Group continues to evolve and reinforce how many talented people live on the peninsula. Networking is imperative for the small business owner and every first Friday of the month, people gather for a $10 lunch and talk about their work. This group has been joined by active retirees and people working in charity looking for skills and assistance. People are able to actually describe their work and quite often the ripple effect goes into operation. I invite you to come along and tell us about your work. Meet at 12.30pm, start at 1pm, finish at 2pm. “Word of mouth” in the country can be very active. Remember, Heritage Tavern hosts some of the peninsula’s top LIVE MUSIC on Sundays from 3-6pm. Entry is free.

A martial arts heavy hitter By Peter Smedley, Zen Do Kai Martial ArtsBalnarring and Red Hill IT was with the stirring fanfare of bagpipes that the founder of Zen Do Kai martial arts, ninth degree black belt Bob Jones, entered the Balnarring Hall to take part in a family fun day on Saturday 20 July. Some of you may remember the name Bob Jones. More than 40 years ago, Bob went about developing the most successful freestyle martial arts systems in Australia, Zen Do Kai Freestyle. During this time, he was a personal bodyguard to The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Joe Cocker, David Bowie and good old Billy Thorpe. He made appearances on the Don Lane Show and the Bert Newton Show and even Sixty Minutes did a story on his organisation. With a prime physique and long flowing red hair, he was the talk of Melbourne and the martial arts world through the 70s, 80s and 90s. He developed further curriculums for the Bob Jones Corporation, such as BJC Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing), BJC Arnis Escrima Kali (Phillipino weaponry), and BJC Kids Kara-te. Bob has since written a book, Let the Good

Times Roll, about his bodyguarding days, which is a “must read” for rock’n roll fans. He has spent the past two years abroad, studying martial arts and his Celtic ancestry, which is a massive personal passion of his. During the fun day, the students all took part in some sharp looking training drills, then some Celtic style games, which delighted Bob and the parents as they observed. This also made a whole lot of children excited and quite noisy! ‘The Chief’, as he is affectionately known by his peers, moved about the room taking part in photos, giving training tips to the adult students and meeting the Zen Do Kai club in Balnarring, as well as students from surrounding Red Hill, Hastings and Somerville schools. The family fun day was just as it was named and a great example to all onlookers as to what a superb organisation Bob Jones has built through his career. Bob spent the afternoon being interviewed by the local radio station, 98.7 RPP FM, where he told many of his bodygaurding stories of the past. This special went to air on Friday 2 August from 9am and 11am.
