Blues take a splattering for win in the mud HASTINGS and Dromana were wrestling in the mud for the ball on Saturday. Thomas Barclay Oval was a quagmire as Hastings got the upper hand in the mind games for the coming finals, managing a win in a lowscoring game 6.7-43 to 3.9-27. The Blues made the most of their opportunities, while the visitors hit the post five times. Tigers’ defender Ryan Worn was reported by three umpires for a hit on Mark Deveraux five minutes before the game ended.

New jobs at port By Mike Hast THERE is movement at the Port of Hastings Development Authority after almost eight months of inaction. Flush with $4 million from the state government budget, the authority on Saturday advertised for six people, the first new staff since the authority was formed on 1 January. On Monday, acting chief executive officer Ralph Kenyon said the new staff would enable the authority to start “delivering on the state government’s

promise of expanding the port”. Oddly, Mr Kenyon has not yet been confirmed as CEO of the authority even though he is hiring six people. He was CEO of the previous iteration of the body, the Port of Hastings Corporation, before it was amalgamated with the Port of Melbourne Corporation by the Brumby Labor government. The organisation will soon move to larger premises in Hastings, although Mr Kenyon said he could not say where at this stage.

The News understands the authority is moving to the first floor of the office building on the corner of High and King streets in Hastings. The authority has been operating since the start of the year with Mr Kenyon and two staff members as well as part-time consultants. The authority was created when the Baillieu government separated the Port of Hastings from the Port of Melbourne Corporation, which the Brumby Labor government joined together in late 2010 shortly before losing office.

On page 3 of The Age on Saturday, a recruitment company acting for the authority ran a large advertisement seeking:  A chief finance and accounting officer on a salary of $170,000 who will be responsible for a wide range of tasks including financial risk and auditing, human resources, occupational health and safety, and property and fleet management.  A manager of strategic and business planning with responsibility for selecting and appointing consultants, and

including calamari, prawns, homemade cakes and biscuits through to alpaca scarves and handmade children’s and adult clothes as well as plants and tarot card readings. The Police Pipe Band in the grounds and Whisky Gypsy on the homestead verandah provided musical entertainment. The market, which is the major fundraiser for the preschool, was the culmination of seven months’ planning

by the preschool’s nine-member subcommittee of parents. The money raised by the market will go toward revamping the children’s outdoor play area. “It’s hard work, but worth it. The people of Somers were fantastic with their support. It was certainly the most successful market so far,” the preschool’s fundraiser leader Vanessa Johnson said. Tony Duboudin

Meter objections go to councils By Mike Hast MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillors Tim Rodgers and Leigh Eustace, and Frankston councillor Glenn Aitken and will ask their colleagues to support anti-smart meter moves. The three were among more than 80 people at a protest meeting at Seaford Hall. Organised by Cr Aitken, attendees voted unanimously for a 10-point recommendation calling for the rollout of so-called smart meters to be stopped as well as related actions. Included in the recommendation was a call for the councils to support the anti-meter movement. Cr Aitken said he would take the meeting’s concerns to full council later this month. Cr Eustace confirmed to The News he and Cr Rodgers would do the same. The Seaford meeting was the latest in a battle between consumers versus the state government and five power retailers, Powercor Australia, SP Ausnet, United Energy Distribution, Citipower, and Jemena. The key objection to smart meters is the claim of people feeling ill due to electromagnetic emissions caused by the meters sending data via a pulse to a power company. Cr Aitken said activists in the United Kingdom had forced the government to make installation of smart meters voluntary instead of compulsory as it was in Victoria. He said states in the United States and the Netherlands also were considering an opt-in system. Cr Aitken said the meeting called for the government to halt the rollout until there had been a full investigation into community concerns. Other elements of the recommendation are:  Householders should have the right to refuse smart meters.  Remove smart meters from homes where people were experiencing health problems caused by the meters.  Premier Ted Baillieu and Minister for Energy

Michael O’Brien to meet with representatives of the anti-smart meter movement.  An investigation into the alleged bullying of householders by smart meter installers.  The meeting also called for action to remove the GST from electricity and gas bills. On 31 July, Energy Safe Victoria released its final report on the safety of smart meters, but Stop Smart Meters Australia said there had been no attempt to address the problem of the health impacts of smart meters. “The issue of possible health effects received little mention in the report, simply concluded the subject was ‘beyond the detailed scope’ of the report and emissions were ‘well below the safe levels set by ARPANSA’.” The government and power companies have stated the meters, which will be installed in all Victorian homes and businesses by the end of 2013, were compliant with the electromagnetic exposure limits developed by the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency. Don Maisch, a spokesman for Stop Smart Meters, said: “People at Energy Safe Victoria have obviously decided the health issue is in the toohard basket and better left ignored. He said ESV had not adequately addressed concerns in its final report.

Seeking fight witnesses HASTINGS police have appealed for witnesses to a fight between two teenage girls aged about 16-18 years who were aboard the Frankston to Stony Point train about 6pm on Saturday 23 June. Leading Senior Constable Rowan McKinnon said the fight occurred in the rear carriage of the two-carriage train as it was pulling in to Hastings station. The teenagers were wrestling on the floor and sustained minor injuries. They got off at Hastings. Witnesses can call 5970 7800 or email rowan. mckinnon@police.vic.gov.au


MP supports change for Clean Ocean By Keith Platt FEDERAL MP Greg Hunt has praised the decision by Clean Ocean Foundation to shift its focus from the Gunnamatta sewage outfall to potential environmental effects from the desalination plant at Kildcunda, near Wonthaggi. Mr Hunt, MP for Flinders and Opposition spokesman on climate action, environment and heritage, said the desalination plant was “the most costly and environmentally damaging option to secure Melbourne’s water supply”. “I am greatly concerned about the impact of the plant’s outfall on marine life, particularly migratory whales, and will continue to work closely with the local community on this issue,” Mr Hunt said. A long-time supporter of Clean Ocean, Mr Hunt made no comment on the acrimonious dispute set in train by revelations by the foundation’s former CEO James Clark-Kennedy that it would be wound up. Mr Clark-Kennedy last month emailed a letter to Mr Hunt and many others, accusing Clean Ocean’s president Peter Smith of wanting to end the organisation without first asking paidup members (‘Clean Ocean bows out’, The News 31/7/12). Mr Clark-Kennedy was sent an email by Mr Smith on Saturday 14 July saying his “contracted services” as CEO were no longer required. He said the email was sent a day after a meeting of the Clean Ocean committee had decided to wind up its operations.

End in sight: Flinders MP Greg Hunt, right, and the Clean Ocean Foundation believe the time is right to move attention away from the Gunnamatta sewage outfall, left, and take on the ocean pollution potential of the desalination plant at Kilcunda, near Wonthaggi.

Mr Smith said a decision for the foundation to continue efforts to stop pollution of the sea would continue from an office at Wonthaggi (‘Clean Ocean aims at Bass Coast’, The News 14/8/12). The decision had followed “a period of necessary introspection”, which would see the closure of the foundation’s Rosebud office and his wish to remain on the committee, but not as president. Mr Clark-Kennedy last week released copies of emails from Mr Smith to back up his claims that members of the Clean Ocean committee had voted to wind-up the organisation. One of the emails was sent to seven people approached by Mr ClarkKennedy as prospective committee members. In an email dated Saturday 14 July, Mr Smith stated that the Clean Ocean Foundation management committee

had passed a unanimous resolution “to proceed in winding up the foundation”. A second email to “committee, associated and friends” provided the same information, but added that he, Mr Smith, had given authority to deal with several issues involved in the wind-up of the foundation. “While we understand however that this may not be acceptable to everybody it is however an unanimous decision of the committee,” Mr Smith stated. “The process will take some time and may require some input from those of you who have been more closely involved.” Since then, Mr Smith has said the foundation will continue “as normal” until a general meeting is held later this year. It is understood Mr Hunt’s statement of support followed discussions with Mr Smith.

Father’s Day is all wrapped up!

“The Clean Ocean Foundation’s focus on the Kilcunda desalination plant will strengthen the community’s voice in calling for greater scrutiny of the environmental impacts of this plant. “In choosing to go ahead with the desalination plant, the former Brumby government chose the most costly and environmentally damaging option to secure Melbourne’s water supply. “I am greatly concerned about the impact of the plant’s outfall on marine life, particularly migratory whales, and will continue to work closely with the local community on this issue.” Mr Hunt also welcomed the foundation’s ongoing commitment to “our Clean Up Port Phillip Bay campaign”. “Our aim is to work collaboratively with the community and all three tiers of government on a plan to make Port Phillip Bay the cleanest urban waterway in the southern hemisphere by 2022.”

“News that the Clean Ocean Foundation will continue the fight to improve our marine environment and broaden its focus to include the desalination plant is welcome,” Mr Hunt stated. “Cleaning up the Gunnamatta sewage outfall has been a major focus of mine for many years. Discharging 150 billion litres of waste water a year into the ocean at a significantly polluted level is unacceptable. “I am delighted that with the tertiary upgrade to the Eastern Treatment Plant well underway, we are nearing the end of that community campaign. “I am committed to a National Ocean Outfalls Plan. If elected to government, I will work with the states to ensure each of our outfalls is cleaned up to an acceptable standard and that water is recycled for industry and agriculture. I hope to continue to work with the Clean Ocean Foundation on this plan.

Wood surf class stays in shape By Keith Platt HAWAIIANS used to surf with flat wooden boards. Early etchings dating from a visit by Captain James Cook show something not too dissimilar to a wooden ironing board. Cook was killed by the Hawaiians on 14 February1779, during his second trip to the archipelago, which he called the Sandwich Islands. The drawings of Hawaiians surfing were by one of Cook’s officers, Lieutenant James King, who wrote “they seem to feel a great pleasure in the motion that this exercise gives”. King is credited with making the first written account of surfing. Missionaries who eventually followed in Cook’s footsteps failed miserably to convince the Hawaiians that surfing was a sin. The Hawaiians introduced Australians to the early forerunners of today’s short boards, which are made from a variety of chemical-based materials, all highly carcinogenic if eaten or in-

haled. But fibreglass, foam and resin work wonders. They can be moulded, and are durable and light. Surfboard design has evolved along with the availability and pliability of these materials. It has long been a recognised irony that while most surfers care for the environment (they wish to surf clean water and appreciate healthy marine ecosystems), they have the petrochemical industry to thank for their equipment. Balsa wood was used to shape surfboards before foam blanks became available, but the lightweight natural material soaked up water and had to be covered with fibreglass and resin. Timber veneers have been glassed over foam to attain a natural look. In the end, about 90 per cent of the board remains the same – fibreglass, foam and resin. A few years ago, purists again started riding ironing boards, but the movement has not taken off except as a novelty. The ironing board has nowhere

Patients’ art diversion PATIENTS at Frankston Hospital’s dialysis unit are receiving art therapy while undergoing treatment. Limited by the use of one arm and being connected for up to five hours at a time to a machine, patients are encouraged to allow space for selfreflection through art by painting, drawing, sculpture and visual stimulation with art journals. The weekly two-hour Art in Dialysis program started in September 2011 and is paid for by Frankston Arts Centre and the Brotherhood of St Laurence. An anonymous donor recently pledged money to keep the program running for another year. “Painting is made more accessible for patients with easels that attach to the hospital side tables or lap stands to

hold the working canvas in place,” art therapist Melissa Lucas said. “One patient is even sculpting the dialysis unit, slowly but surely bringing to life an original concept.” Ms Lucas said the extra money meant patients can “devise a public outcome, book or documentary to share with the greater community on the work they have accomplished with art therapy at Frankston Hospital”.

near the wave-catching ease or maneuverability of a board made from, you guessed it, fibreglass, foam and resin. Last week a class of eight at Mt Eliza learnt how to make a wooden surfboard that performs the same as its environmentally unfriendly lookalikes. Gary Miller and Rob Ivers were holding their third workshop with three more already booked out. Each workshop lasts three days and at the end everyone attending walks away with a wooden, environmentally friendly surfboard under their arm. The paulownia plantation-grown timber (native to China) practically lasts forever, Miller says. Widely used in furniture, caravans, yachts and window shutters, paulownia is easy to work and, best of all for a surfboard, doesn’t absorb water, although most boards are finished off with a coat of varnish (environmentally friendly, of course). Miller and Ivers operate under the Tree to Sea Australia banner, using plans and designs from United States-

based Rich Blundell, who was out here in April running a board-making workshop in the garage of Ivers’s Mt Eliza house. “We use his plans, which are selected and bought from his website,” Miller says. He said the “green push” is seeing increasing numbers of surfers showing an interest in making a hollow wooden board. Most surfers want to shape a board, but baulk at carving into a block of foam. The Tree to Sea designs are built on a frame similar to that underlying an aircraft wing. The frames are pre-cut by Miller and Ivers after the plans are chosen by each surfer in the class. The surfers are shown how to glue the lengths of paulownia together for the top and bottom decks, with thinner strips being glued along the edges, or rails. Thin strips of cedar are used for decoration or strength as stringers.

Miller says young and old surfers have signed up for the classes and some secondary colleges are showing interest. “Making these boards could cut across three departments, technical, art and multimedia,” he says. And what about the acid test – actually riding a wooden board in the surf? “It’s got a lot to do with where your head is,” Miller says. “It’s different to a foam board. A bit heavier, which gives more momentum and glide. You can push through the whitewater. “Like any board, it’s all locked in with the surfboard shape and individual style.” The three days of tuition cost $450 and the board materials are $60 a foot (surfers and real estate agents still use imperial measures), which pretty much equate to the cost of a custom-built fibreglass, foam and resin job.

Cup day hits $1m in prizes NEXT year’s Mornington Cup will be the Victoria’s first regional race day to offer $1 million or more in prizemoney. From 2013, cup contestants will be racing for a share of $350,000 as well as ballot exemption from the BMW Caulfield Cup later that year. Melbourne Racing Club chairman Mike Symons said the Mornington Cup was now “the most important on the national racing calendar to be held outside a metropolitan area”. The club also announced a $50,000 increase on the cup’s total prize pool. “The prizemoney boost further indicates the benefit of the amalgamation of the Melbourne and Mornington clubs, and comes in the wake of the Australian Pattern Committee’s recommendation that the $250,000 Inglis Premier – part of the Mornington Cup day undercard and won this year by Snitzerland en route to placing in the Golden Slipper – be granted restricted listed status,” Mr Symons said. “The Melbourne Racing Club is underpinned by a desire to provide our members and stakeholders, as well as participants and punters, with unparalleled standards in our racing product and associated services. “The increase in prizemoney for the Centrebet Mornington Cup, and across the entire day, serves to satisfy that desire. “It should also make the cup, notwithstanding the BMW Caulfield

Cup ballot exemption, an even more appealing race for trainers across the country, where the richest country cups peak at around half of the Mornington Cup in prizemoney value.” Mr Symons said the prize offered by the cup “throws out a real challenge to the strong stables from interstate – Chris Waller, Gai Waterhouse and company – to come and race at Mornington”. Mornington Racing Club advisory group chairman Tony Hancy said the Mornington course “is now considered by many to be the Mornington Peninsula’s premier entertainment venue”. “The consequences of this not only benefit the club and our members, sponsors and race day guests, but also the community and commercial sector of the wider peninsula.” Mornington Cup day is one of seven metropolitan-standard race meetings being held at Mornington in season 2012-13.

Trackside attraction: Melbourne Racing Club hopes extra prizemoney will lure more to trainers to the Mornington Cup.

Happy hikers: The 10 members of Peninsula Bushwalking Club who made the 30-kilometre trek from McCrae to Cape Schanck.

A day’s hike across the peninsula TEN members of Peninsula Bushwalking Club spent a recent Saturday hiking from McCrae lighthouse to Cape Schanck lighthouse. On previous occasions, many club members had completed the walk in two halves, but this was the first attempt to complete the entire distance in a day. Starting in half light at 7am, the party set out along the coast to the start of the Two Bays Walking Track near Anthonys Nose at McCrae. “A steady climb up Arthurs Seat is the hardest part of the route, but presented rewarding views across Port

Phillip as the sun cast its first light,” club member John Trevillian said. “Kangaroos and birdlife were abundant and the winter wattles, golden in the bright sunshine, accompanied them all day.” Mr Trevillian said the 30-kilometre walk was “probably the longest distance any of the party had covered in a day”. “With the final six kilometres still to go, it was a welcome sight when the party was met by two more club members who treated them to a welcome bush afternoon tea. “Finally at about 3.30pm the group

emerged from one of the peninsula’s most attractive walks. “With Cape Schanck lighthouse in the background, there were many congratulatory handshakes and thoughts of a relaxing shower.” Mr Trevillian said that not all club walks were as long or as challenging “but these walkers were all seasoned bushwalking club members”. The club holds day walks and overnight walks all over Victoria. For details go to www.peninsulabushwalkingclub. org.au or email peninsulabushwalking club@hotmail.com

Shocking gift to sports clubs SOMERVILLE Lions Club has donated a portable defibrillator unit, which was presented to Somerville sporting clubs at the Somerville Oval on Sunday 24 June. Defibrillators are used to resuscitate a person who has suffered a cardiac arrest. They stabilising their heart rhythm until medical assistance arrives. The unite is simple to use and allows an immediate response in an emergency where every minute is crucial. Lions club vice-president David O’Reilly presented the unit to representatives of sports clubs, who will keep the unit at the Somerville clubrooms ready for use. “While we hope the unit will never have to be used, it is reassuring to have it available in a medical emergency,” Mr O’Reilly said. “The Lions club collected the money within the community to purchase the defibrillator by hold-

ing sausage sizzles, and was pleased to be able to return the money to the community through this purchase.” Representatives of Somerville football, netball and cricket clubs thanked the Lions for providing the equipment. Hastings MP Neale Burgess also thanked the Lions club members and was pleased to see Somerville clubs working together to fulfill a community need.

Gift from the heart: Paul McDonald (President, Somerville Football Club), Corrine Howath (Somerville Netball), David O’Reilly (Somerville Lions vice-president), Kerrie Brodie (Somerville Netball), Geoff Tozer (President, Somerville Junior Football), Peter Alp (Somerville Cricket) and Neale Burgess show off the defibrillator.

Mental health goes ‘home’ THE state’s first purpose-built treatment centre for young people with mental health problems has opened in Frankston. The new Youth Prevention and Recovery Centre – Youth PARC – was opened on Wednesday by the Minister for Mental Health, Women’s Affairs and Community Services Mary Wooldridge. The Youth PARC in Yuille St will provide early intervention for 16-25 year olds with mental illness who are too unwell to be at home but not in need of hospital care and for those in

the early stages of recovery from an acute psychiatric episode. Young people are expected to stay at the 10-bed centre for a minimum of two weeks or up to 28 days. The centre – run by Peninsula Health, Mind Australia and Peninsula Support Services – will be staffed full time by clinicians and mental health recovery workers. Peninsula Health will next year open an adult PARC in Beach St. “The youth-friendly centre is designed as a large house, so young people can receive care in a more

home-like setting rather than a hospital facility,” Peninsula Health’s executive director of mental health services Jan Child said. “This design is based on feedback from Victorians with mental illness, their families, carers and professionals who work with them. “Frankston has a relatively high population of young people. The Youth PARC is an opportunity to intervene early with young people to optimise their social and educational chances.”

The advertisement states the authority “has been tasked by the Victorian government to develop the Port of Hastings over the next 10-15 years” to provide more container handling capacity for the state. None of the jobs include any mention of protecting and enhancing Western Port’s important environmental and recreational values, which opponents of port expansion insist must be a crucial element of expansion. Last year, Simon Branigan of the Victorian National Park Association said an expanded port would transform the area into a highly urbanised industrial zone that would become busier than the Port of Melbourne. Port of Hastings’ figures show the port will move 3.7 million containers a year by 2035, 1.2 million more than Port of Melbourne last year. “Making Hastings into a container port must include protecting and enhancing Western Port’s immense environmental and recreational values,” Mr Branigan said. “The development authority should have the protection of the bay’s environmental values as its core operating goal, not just fast-tracking development based on a projected growth in container shipping traffic.” The Baillieu government is under pressure from business and industry to fast-track the expansion of Hastings, which the previous government planned to do over 25 years in three stages. The Labor government commissioned a land use and transport strategy (PoHLUTS, archly dubbed “pollutes” by environmentalists), which was completed in September 2006, but stalled its release until March 2007 and

PoHLUTS floated the idea of building a new rail link between Hastings and Dandenong through farmland and near residential areas in Tyabb, Pearcedale, Devon Meadows and Clyde. It met with furious opposition and sparked public meetings and protest rallies. The government quietly shelved the plan. Baillieu government ports minister Denis Napthine floated a new idea last October – huge driverless trucks running up and down Western Port Highway between Hastings and Dandenong South, where a so-called inland port would be developed for smaller trucks to take goods to other parts of Melbourne and the state. Port of Melbourne handled two million containers in 2008 and 2.5 million last year. Pressure is mounting to keep Melbourne exports and imports moving, and an interim measure will be the development of Webb Dock, which is at the entrance to the Yarra River, as Melbourne’s other key docks – Swanson, Appleton and Victoria – are fast running out of land. On current figures, Port of Hastings will cost at least $10 billion to build. The Baillieu government’s 2012 submission to Infrastructure Australia, which advises the federal government, has money for Hastings high up on its wish list, along with Melbourne projects such as the East-West Road Link, a rail tunnel from Footscray to South Yarra, and expansion of the Dandenong railway line.

Crib Point Community House chalks up 30 years

Captain Running Man visits: As part of the first birthday celebrations of Anytime Fitness Somerville, mascot Captain Running Man (alias Luke Marshall PT @ Somerville) has been dashing around Western Port streets. He has been busy handing out flyers and balloons and celebrating their birthday in true super-hero style. Picture: Jenny Wilson

A cut above the rest: The first coordinator of the community house, Patricia Millar, and current coordinator Mary Budd cut the birthday cake.

CRIB Point Community House has celebrated 30 years of serving the community. Past and present committee members, coordinators, shire staff and house participants were joined by Greg Hunt, Neale Burgess and Reade Smith to celebrate the milestone. Captain Katherine Richards, Commanding Officer of HMAS Cerberus, also attended and proudly showed her children where she went to school. From humble beginnings in a little house at 1 Park Rd, the community house moved to the old school building in 1989.

Over the years it has helped many people return to study and employment and it’s been great to see them go on to better things. We have seen children grow up and then bring their own children to community house childcare, which was discontinued after the funding was stopped. The community house is holding a celebration day for the community on Saturday 27 October. There will be a free sausage sizzle and people can try out activities including folk art, cake decorating, yoga, tai chi and crafts. Mary Budd

The Western Port Whisperer THE whisper is Hastings Library has employed a security guard to protect patrons and property from a group of young kids. They have been terrorising the town for more than a week and nothing has been done to stop the brats. Where the heck are the parents? Reading this newspaper last week indicated the kids were only aged 8-12. How does it come to be that we have to live in fear of kids this age? It wouldn’t have been an issue in Hastings 30 years ago, let me tell you. *** CRIB Point Football Club has not made the football finals this season. The Hastings team is still in the mix after a strong finish to the season. The Whisperer suggests people take time out during the finals season to catch a game or two. *** REBUILDING of Hastings jetty is now complete and it looks great. Pity the poor sods in Mornington – they got a new pier that extends only halfway, then breaks for five metres or so, and then the old one continues. It is a disgrace and an eyesore. *** SPEAKING of Hastings jetty, the whisper is that tenders have been called for someone to take over the lease of the fish shed at the start of the jetty. It could become all manner of things; retail, cafe, information. Time will tell, so keep your ears open for the whispers and let me know. *** THE whisper is the Otama submarine people have a new plan to bring the submarine to Hastings. Time must be slipping away to get the project going or the opportunity may be lost. Over the years, alternate sites have been suggested including Docklands and Frankston.

The submarine also was listed on eBay a few years ago and ASIO got involved after it was thought a foreign power were enquiring to buy the sub. *** SPEAKING of things sitting in Western Port endlessly, does anyone know the whisper about the hovercraft sitting above the high tide mark near Long island Point? It can be seen across the water if you look down High St, and must have been sitting there for the best part of a year. The Whisperer read in this paper many months ago that the owner had simply parked it there while it was undergoing sea trials. The whisper is the vessel was being built for the Singapore police. Maybe they have the submarine under surveillance. *** THE Liberal Party has criticised a cost blowout of the National Broadband Network. The Whisperer things it is quite amusing that the only place on the peninsula to currently have the NBN is a retirement village in Mornington. *** OFTEN, public art installations look very much like fancy graffiti. The difference? The artist is being paid. *** A CALL came into Whisperer HQ from a disgruntled diner after visiting a certain fast food chain. He claims the condition of the place was appalling, with food all over the floor, disgusting toilets and ambivalent staff. Standards have slipped. *** A WHISPER was heard that Peninsula Link Freeway is ahead of schedule and could be opening before next year. This would be a monumental achievement considering the wet winter (summer, spring and autumn). thewhisperer@y7mail.com

Spencer fights back after stroke SPENCER White is pushing himself toward his goal of recovering from a debilitating stroke. Just 12 months ago, the Bittern resident suffered a stroke on his 70th birthday and was rushed to Frankston Hospital by ambulance. The stroke caused severe damage to the left side of his brain, leaving him unable to speak. “I knew something was wrong. I knew I wanted to say something, but couldn’t,” Spencer said. He underwent three weeks of inpatient rehabilitation at Peninsula Health’s Golf Links Road Rehabilitation Centre. This was followed by three sessions a week with speech pathologists through the Frankston Community Rehabilitation Program. He was provided with support, counselling, goals and tasks like speech drills, conversation practice and confidence-building exercises. After eight months of intensive therapy, Spencer has moved from not being able to utter a word to being able to engage in conversation. “The speech pathologists, together with family and friends, were so encouraging and pushed me to achieve my goals. They don’t realise how much they have done for me,” Spencer said. Speech pathologists and his wife Marj are extremely impressed with how far he has come. “We started off with a piece of paper in front of us with the ABCs on it and Spence would point to what he thought the letter being pronounced was because he couldn’t say it,” Marj said.

Ten things you should know about stroke

On the road to recovery: Spencer White running through speech drills with Peninsula Health speech pathologist Taryn Strumpman, right, watched by his wife Marj.

“The girls would give him tasks and he’d complete them and ask for more. They just couldn’t believe how persistent and motivated he was.” After reading the newspaper aloud to Marj, Spencer is slowly building the confidence to pick up the house phone too. “I know I should speak on the phone more than I do, but sometimes the person on the other end does not realise that I cannot speak quickly and I clam up. I prefer to speak to someone face to face.”

“So I make him give the order to the waitress when we go out for a meal or a coffee, just like he used to before the stroke,” Marj said. “She is a hard taskmaster,” Spencer said. Peninsula Health speech pathologist Taryn Strumpman asserts that maintenance is now the key for Spencer. “Spencer has come a long way since he first came to us,” she said. “The reality is that some people do not always recover completely, so it’s all about setting realistic and achiev-

able goals, taking the time to speak slowly and maintaining the level he is at right now.” The Social Communication Group is available to Spencer and others like him to continue engaging in conversation and build confidence. “The group is great because he can see for himself that he is not alone and he is excited to join the group in the coming weeks,” Marj said. The initiative has been running for five years and is operated by Peninsula Health speech pathologists.

1. Stroke is Australia’s secondgreatest killer after coronary heart disease and is a leading cause of disability. 2. In 2010, Australians will suffer about 60,000 new and recurrent strokes – that’s one stroke every 10 minutes. 3. One in five people having a firstever stroke die within one month and one in three die within a year. 4. The number of strokes will increase each year due to the ageing population unless something is done to improve health. 5. The FAST test is an easy way to recognise and remember the signs of stroke. Using the test involves asking three simple questions: Face – Check their face. Has their mouth drooped? Arms – Can they lift both arms? Speech – Is speech slurred? Do they understand you? Time – Time is critical. If you see any of these signs call 000 now. 6. In the next 10 years, more than half a million people will suffer a stroke. 7. Stroke kills more women than breast cancer. 8. About 88 per cent of stroke survivors live at home and most have a disability. 9. Close to 20 per cent of all strokes occur to people aged under 55. 10. Strokes cost Australia an estimated $2.14 billion a year. Source: strokefoundation.com.au

FEATURE PROPERTY

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

Resort living with eco qualities COMBINING the beautiful, natural characteristics of stone and timber, this sweeping ranch-style property offers an enviable lifestyle with comfort and private tranquil surroundings on an 8000-square metre block. The property has been carefully crafted to blend in with the surroundings. While it would have been easy to blaze a trail with no forethought as to the flora and erect a home, here the main residence and the tall gum trees naturally complement each other and the property is all the richer for it. Superb polished ironbark timber floors and cathedral ceilings with exposed beans feature throughout the main living area. A dining area has been combined with the kitchen, which boasts blackwood cupboards, a dishwasher and a 900mm Lajermani oven and cooktop. A few steps from the lounge is a timber deck undercover entertainment area overlooking the paved aggregate pool and fern garden water feature. The “stone wing” of the home, so evident from outside, is a wonderful step-down rumpus or games room. The only item missing from the feature stone wall is a big marlin that could hang above the open fireplace or, if your pursuits don’t extend to big game fishing, a big screen television would work fine. Under the roofline is a total of 325 square metres (35 squares), which also includes three bedrooms, the main with an ensuite and walk-in robe, and a double carport. Separate from the home is a one-bedroom, self-contained dwelling and other outbuildings including a double garage. The property is serviced by a 30,000-litre water tank and mains water is available for connection. If you want your own piece of paradise within reach of wineries, golf courses and Bittern and Hastings, this outstanding lifestyle property will be hard to go past.

A fine blend

ABSOLUTELY immmaculate, this three-bedroom villa is set at the front of a secure unit complex. At the front is a double garage with internal access and rear access to a private backyard. The open-plan living areas are bright and spacious, and comprise a lounge and dining zone with a nearby kitchen featuring a dishwasher and plenty of cupboard space. All bedrooms have built-in robes. A handy extra, on top of the family bathroom, is the ensuite bathroom off the master bedroom. The property presents in as-new condition and for retirees it is a wonderful proposition when considering downsizing to a more manageable home. For investors, the unit is leased and bringing a return of $1343 per calendar month.

WITH space and comfort, this is a fine opportunity to secure a first home or rental investment property. The interior is surprisingly large with a main open-plan area running the width of the home. Incorporating a nice kitchen with dishwasher, wall-oven and pantry, there is an adjoining casual meals area to the left and to the right a more formal area with carpeted floor that leads into the lounge room. The three bedrooms are all double size and have space to install built-in robes. The bathroom is very presentable with a corner vanity, large glass shower and toilet. The block has been kept neat and tidy and is perfectly flat with garden paths leading to a series of sheds. The cobbled driveway at the front merges with a concrete driveway that extends to a second, steel double garage. The property has been set up for wheelchair access with ramps at the front and side of the home.

Where’s the mouse?: Tiger has the run of Tigertel, the company in Carrum Downs named after him. He’s “boss” of Optus Business Centre and has raised a few eyebrows wandering across the boardroom table during meetings. Tiger is pictured left with Ashlee Boaler, recently promoted to the Optus business unit from the Optus retail store. Above: Tiger with another sales representative Kristy Herdman. Below, Optus Business Centre co-owner Wes Bourke and Tiger.

From stray to ‘CEO’: this Tiger has telco by the tail By Keith Platt TIGER is a working cat. While he has no job description or official title, everyone knows Tiger has the run of the office. Why, they even named the company after him, Tigertel, the Optus Business Centre in Carrum Downs. A wellproportioned ginger cat, Tiger has his own door, a place to sleep and all meals supplied. There are toys, scratch poles and the hands of 15 staff ready with a pat. He’s a lapcat (when he chooses) and frequently finds a comfortable nestling space between someone’s back and the back of a chair. Unlike many working animals, Tiger isn’t expected to herd, lift or pull anything. He’s just there. The benefits of having animals at home and in the workplace are

acknowledged by the medical profession. Pets are used for therapy in hospitals and have been known to help people overcome depression and introversion. “There is evidence to show people who own pets are healthier and are less stressed,” Lort Smith Animal Hospital general manager veterinary service Dr Russell Harrison said. “We spend half of our waking hours at work, so it makes to sense to have a pet in the workplace. As with people, there comes a time when work pets need to retire. As the pet gets older, it may be better to be in a quieter home environment.” Tigertel is the business run by Wes Bourke and Brian McCue behind the Optus Business Centre in Carrum Downs.

luckiest cat in the world”. In 1999 Bourke and McCue were running the Optus World store in Frankston when staff heard a strange noise in the office. It took a few days to track down, but eventually one of them found a stray, undernourished kitten in an unused storage space under a stairwell. “Seeing he was in a bad way, the team leapt into action,” Bourke recalls. Milk and cat food were bought “to keep the little fella alive”; its bed was a box and rags; and, finally, a trip to the vet for a check-up and advice. A heart-winner from day one, the stray was named Tiger. Staff offered to take him home, but Bourke and McCue decided he should stay at the office.

... and other short stories

Terminal decline of quality penmanship By Stuart McCullough IT’S tragic, really. For years, my handwriting has been in a state of ever-increasing decay. Like an ancient pullover, it has been gradually unravelling until all that remains is a single, indecipherable thread. The tragedy of my handwriting is not a story of a single minute but of a toll taken over several decades. It started out as terrible from which point it has steadily devolved. To all my primary school teachers, I’d like to offer you the sincerest of apologies. The hours you spent at the blunt end of the blackboard should not have been in vain. That my body should seemingly reject all that I ever learned about cursive script is not anyone’s fault to speak of. Not even my own. I was never a delinquent. At school I dutifully copied down the patterns on the blackboard into my exercise book, developing a style of handwriting as unique as any fingerprint. I thought my handwriting was fine until I saw the crisp, clear lines that filled the pages of my schoolmates. Even then, my handwriting was lousy. But as poor as it was, it must still have been legible. I say that because all our examinations relied on handwritten answers and I managed to progress. If I’d had then the handwriting I have now, I’d still be in year 10. But why the decline? Technology is at least in part to blame. When I was at university, laptops began to pop up like toadstools in dark corners of the classroom. I believed these contrap-

tions to be little more than a passing fad and I dismissed them as vigorously as a paid-up member of the Flat Earth Society would a globe if he got the rough end of a Kris Kringle. Resistance, however, would prove to be futile. When I started working, I found myself at a computer for most of the day. Indeed, it’s now where I spend the best part of every day. My handwriting has suffered terribly as a result. It even resulted in a co-worker once referring to my script as “chicken scratch”. In truth, my handwriting never

stood a chance. It’s genetics, you see. The fact of the matter is that my family has long harboured a dark, tragic secret – we all have terrible, atrocious handwriting. Christmas at our house was always a scene of great confusion as we struggled to decipher which gift belonged to which child. Gift cards were frequently despatched down to the team at forensics for analysis to determine precisely who the intended recipient was. It resulted in the occasional perverse outcome, but we lived with the consequences nevertheless.

Bamboo Cottage

By some margin, the person with the worst handwriting in our family is my father. If my father’s handwriting was a typeface, it would, without doubt, be “Wing dings”. I have dozens of wonderful books, all of which are home to the most touching and thoughtful inscriptions from my father, none of which I can read. Many appear to have gone through a couple of cycles in the Enigma Machine. Technically, it may not be handwriting so much as it is a biro out for a walk. Birthday cards were encryptions that my brothers and sisters and I would spend hours trying to crack. Either he was wishing me a ‘happy birthday’ or the Germans were planning an air assault flying out of Dusseldorf. It was impossible to tell which. This, of course, is to say nothing of postcards. The reason for such silence is that the contents of postcards were as inscrutable as our faces as we attempted to read them. There is, however, an upside. Now that handwriting has largely fallen foul of the fickle breeze of fashion, the playing field has been levelled. Soon, generations of youngsters will look on a ballpoint pen with the same kind of screwed-up incredulity we’d give a horse and buggy or the decision to bring back It’s a Knockout. Handwriting will soon be all but irrelevant, preserved only by small groups of dedicated purists who meet in secret to practise their penmanship. Either that or it will be elevated to

the level of an exotic martial art and used by street gangs as a means of settling disputes. Finally, the pen would at long last truly be mightier than the sword. Frustrations would be resolved by way of a Caran d’Ache Fleur de Dentelle fountain pen and bickering by way of the Bic Biro. But in spite of these pocket-pens of resistance, handwriting would inevitably be declared an endangered species at risk of extinction. Let me say that it can’t come soon enough. Only then will I be free from the shame and attendant mockery that only truly terrible handwriting can inspire. No longer will Christmas in our house be the slightly random presentthrowing affair that so marred our childhood years, even if I still insist that the size seven ballet shoes I received when I was 15 were intended for me. (No one had the nerve to tell me otherwise. I seemed so pleased.) From now on, people will get the presents that were bought with them in mind. It can now be said that, if not the writing, then certainly the Times New Roman is on the wall for handwriting. It will not affect my father. He will continue to gift books with indecipherable inscriptions and send postcards, the contents of which remain a mystery. I can’t say I mind so much. There’s such a thing, I think, as making things too simple. Or, as my father would write, “too simple”. www.stuartmccullough.com

Blues tame Tigers, Crib dumps Bombers NEPEAN DIVISION

By Toe Punt SORRENTO went into safe mode against Pearcedale at the 28-minute mark of the last quarter on Saturday and paid the ultimate price. The Sharks’ 16-year-old forward Jayden Tompkins kicked a goal well into time-on in the final term at Tractor Park to give the visitors a 10-point lead. Thinking there was just a minute or so left on the clock, the Sorrento brains trust decided to put some players “on ice”. Key contested ball winner Leigh Treeby was taken from the field, as was young ruckman Jon Croad. Pearcedale, which had been well and truly in the contest all afternoon, continued to push hard in the hope of winning its fourth game in the past five weeks. The Dales kicked three goals in three minutes to snatch the lead and take the ultimate scalp in the final game of the season. The final siren sounded at the 35-minute mark of the last quarter. The Sharks interchange crew got it horribly wrong. It was a wonderful way for the Panthers to finish the season, given their poor start. Ben Cadd re-signed with the club during the week, a major coup. Finishing the season in winning form also holds them in good stead to add to their list in the off-season. On Saturday, Daniel Murray also finished the season on a high, kicking

PAGE 30

four goals, while star players Chris Fortnam, Pat Cadd and Tony Lester dominated. Also finishing the season with yet another outstanding performer was Dean Jannsen, who was named Pearcedale’s best yet again. The Sharks have been in average form since their massive win against Rye. After that game, Sorrento consolidated top spot on the ladder. It lost the following week against Dromana, did what it had to against Rosebud and has now lost to Pearcedale. In the second semi-final, the Sharks will regain Scott Cameron and Ben Schwarze. However, it does appear they will play finals without key forward Leigh Poholke, who busted a finger on Saturday. Frankston Bombers coach Tony Blackford will sit down with the club in the next couple of weeks to discuss his future after his side was bundled out of the finals race on Saturday by Crib Point. The equation was simple: Frankston needed to win to make the finals. Crib Point needed to win and hope Rosebud lost to Rye. The Magpies held up their end of the bargain, but Rosebud beat Rye and Crib Point’s tilt at a finals berth is over. Rye, Crib Point and Frankston all finished on nine wins, but the Demons boasted the best percentage, which saved them in the end. Blackford said he believed his club had underachieved since winning the flag in 2009.

Western Port News 21 August 2012

“There are some circumstances that have contributed to this but at the end of the day, we haven’t improved on the field since winning the flag,” Blackford said. “I’ll sit down with the club and they can tell me the direction that they would like to go. “I love the place and wouldn’t go anywhere else now but the club is bigger than any individual and I want to see them succeed. “If that means I’m coach, then great, but if they want to go in a different direction, then I’ll understand that also.” The Bombers led Crib Point at half-time by 11 points after taking advantage of the wind in the second term. However, with the wind in the third, Crib Point was so much more desperate than their opponent and in a 10-minute onslaught blew Frankston away. The Magpies booted five goals in eight minutes and finished with six for the term to lead by 20 at three-quarter time. Coach Dave Lawson booted two goals in the third, Jon Flack booted a couple to finish with five for the game and the likes of Brad Davidson and James Cook took control. David Cook also was outstanding and Matt Sloper did a great job on Brad Wakeling. When the Pies kicked the first goal of the final term, the game was over. Dean Wagner played a cameo role in the ruck for the Bombers and did it to great effect, while Jay Page finished the season in great fashion, as did Ben Simmons.

Rosebud simply needed to beat Rye to play in the finals and played accordingly, smashing the Demons by 39 points. The home side booted five goals to one in the first quarter, which set up the win. All expected to see Rye’s Justin Van Unen boot the two goals he needed to get his 100th early in the clash., but it took until the third quarter for the entire Rye team to kick its second goal. Van Unen was kept goalless and will have to front up this week against the same side in the elimination final to reach the milestone. Brenton Davidge caused all sorts of headaches for the Demons, and Lachy Armstrong was back in the line-up and contributed three. Jake Jarman and Brenton Payne were outstanding for the Buds, and Rogers was solid across half-back. Matt McIndoes was Rye’s most productive player with two goals, and Sam Smith was a welcome return in the middle. Andrew Dean presented in attack and worked hard. The Buds have now beaten Rye twice this season. They would have to be confident this week, especially with Ben Schultz and Daniel Giarusso back in the side. Devon Meadows booted five goals in the third quarter to set up a great win over Red Hill. It’s been a tough season for Devon in its first year back in Nepean Division, but at least the club was finished the season on a high note. Andrew Oldmeadow was outstanding for the winners with two goals while Billy Hayes and Craig Thorne were impressive.

Tyabb finished the season on a high, while Somerville ended its season in poor fashion. The Yabbies were in control of the match for much of the afternoon with Ryan Jones dominating. Matty Dimkos and Ben Gould also were outstanding performers for the Yabbies. Jess Sutton finished in a blaze of glory for the Eagles, as did Emilio Bitters and Jon Edwards. Hastings got the upper hand in the mind games with Dromana, winning a low-scoring affair in ordinary conditions. The Blues made the most of their opportunities, while the visitors hit the post five times. The Tigers are likely to lose important defender Ryan Worn for a couple of weeks after he was reported by three umpires for a late hit on Mark Deveraux five minutes before the end of the game. Guy Martin played his second game of the season for the Blues and finished with three goals. Dromana coach Gavin Artico said the game was a mud fight. “Obviously Hastings was playing for the double chance and we didn’t have a lot to play for,” Artico said. “Hastings played the better footy for longer periods and deserved to win. “Hopefully we’ll play on a better deck this week, which is more conducive to top-of-the-table footy.” Mud, inglorious mud: Reserves player Jay Leyonhjelm, below, and his senior colleagues had to work hard in the goop at Hastings on the weekend in matches against Dromana.

Seagulls hang on, Dogs bite Kangas PENINSULA DIVISION By Toe Punt JUST one week to go! That’s all you can hear at Chelsea Football Club after a disastrous season got worse on Saturday. Chelsea was held goalless for three quarters against premiership fancy Karingal. At the beginning of the MPNFL season, Chelsea had done enough in the off-season to be involved in the same conversation that included YCW and Karingal. The Gulls were left wanting at the end of the 2011 season but had recruited well and were expecting great things. The season started well, too, with solid victories over Edithvale-Aspendale and Pines. However, then Frankston YCW handed out a 78-point belting. The Gulls booted three goals that day. In round four Chelsea hammered

Mornington, then came from behind to beat Bonbeach. They were four and one. The VCFL championships gave everyone a week off, but the Seagulls must have relaxed too much. They were smashed by Mt Eliza to the tune of 100 points before bouncing back against Seaford. At this stage, the Gulls were in the five with five wins and two losses. It was the round eight belting by Karingal that sent the club backward. It had a few injuries and a couple of players walked. Although they bounced back against Langwarrin the following week, and had a win against Edi-Asp on a Sunday, not a lot has gone right since then. On Saturday against the Bulls, it was embarrassing again, much like the round 12 game against YCW when Chelsea booted just one goal. Chelsea was below par on the week-

end, but Karingal was mighty once again. The Bulls had 42 scoring shots to seven with Chris Hay booting 10 goals. “Cocky” now has 77 for the season and leads Scott Lockwood by six with just one round to go. This isn’t bad for a bloke who made a comeback halfway through last year after spending three seasons on the golf course. I think people forgot how good Chris Hay was – and is. He was a junior superstar who could have been anything. Now he is a star for his beloved Karingal club. His junior combatant, Michael Burke, finished with six goals and James Tyquin, Steve Charalambous and Troy Hoad continued their dominant form. Nigel Carmody, Robbie Lancaster and Sam Carpenter were brilliant for the Gulls. Carmody and Carpenter have been sensational all season. Mornington was humiliated against Karingal in the previous round, beaten by 180 points, and needed to make a stand on Saturday and they did, leading for the large majority of the day to knock over Langwarrin. The Dogs had outstanding second and third quarters, booting nine goals to three to lead by 28 points at the final change. The Kangas came back in the last

quarter, thanks to the run of Dylan Luxa and Sean Herdman, but still went down by 10 points. Chris Paxino booted five for the Dogs, and Michael Braay, Chris Baker and Byron Murphy dominated. Aaron Shaw finished with five for the Kangas and Michael Parker was also at his best. Mt Eliza had to fight tooth and nail to get the job done against Pines, winning by just nine points. The Redlegs trailed by 19 points at half-time and by two points at threequarter time. Pines had the wind in the last quarter. Thanks to Ben Landry with three goals and Dan Gormley and skipper Jimmy Clayton, the Redlegs kicked four goals to two in the last against the tide to claim a good win. Guy Hendry booted three, and Stevey Ryan, Luke Potts and Shaun White two each for the Pythons, while 17-year-old Rhys Chalkley was outstanding. Chris Guganovic and Dave Marguglio were also fine contributors across four quarters for the Pythons. With a good finish to the season, Pines could be a great place next season and shouldn’t have too much trouble recruiting. Frankston YCW geared up for its tilt at Mt Eliza this weekend, easily accounting for Seaford to the tune of

Good year: Sam Carpenter, above, has had a good year but not so his team, Chelsea Seagulls, which has been up and down. The team was beaten comprehensively on Saturday by Karingal. To make the finals, the Gulls must win on Saturday and hope Edi-Asp beat Seaford. Pictures: Andrew Hurst

54 points. The Stonecats restricted the Tigers to just one goal in the first half and three for the match. Daniel Smith and Kyle Hutchison booted three each for the winners, and Lew Roberts contributed two. Rhys Johnson and Adrian McIntyre were outstanding for YCW. For the Tigers, Aaron Walton finished with two goals and Luke Smith, Peter Azzopardi and Chris Irving worked tirelessly. Bonbeach will play finals in 2012, a magnificent effort. At the end of last season, the Sharks lost a coach and key players. This left only stalwarts who wanted to play in the red, white and black and they started over again. The best thing the club did was appoint Stevey Capp as coach. Many in football circles doubted his footy credentials. “Cappy” wasn’t a big name or a star MPNFL senior player. He is intelligent, passionate, a football educator and a leader of men. Look at the results. The Sharks have been the most consistent side in the competition outside of the top three. They are now two games clear in fourth place with one round to go. The Sharks should beat Mornington, but it doesn’t matter if they don’t. Chelsea play Langwarrin at Langwarrin and Seaford play Edithvale at home. If the Gulls win and Tigers lose, Chelsea will play finals. If the Gulls win and Seaford wins, the Tigers’ percentage is far greater and they get in. Regardless, the Sharks are in and can fine-tune for their first final this week. On Saturday against the EdithvaleAspendale, Bonbeach had to fight. It was good preparation. The Eagles had a sensational third quarter and led by 11 points at the final change. Bonbeach kicked four goals to two points in the last quarter to win by 17. Daniel Smith, as always, led from the front, while Shaun Foster, Mark Tyrrell and Jackson Casey were outstanding. The Eagles were far from disgraced. Tim Mannix (three goals) and Beau Turner were outstanding, and Brad Tagg also finished with three in a classy performance. Pat Poore also made a welcome return and contributed well, assisting Nick Connellan in the big man department.

Cancer call to arms

VOLUNTEERS collected funds for the Cancer Council’s Call to Arms program during the Rye versus Hastings match on Saturday week at Rye. The national program is designed to tackle men’s cancer and seeks to involve all clubs from all sporting codes. At Rye, players showed their support by wearing yellow armbands. The event was inspired by Rye senior player Matthew McIndoe, whose father is seriously ill from cancer. To get involved, call 1300 65 65 85 or look up www.calltoarms.com.au Pictured are umpires and senior team captains with Karen McIndoe. Picture: Simone Redfearn

Hastings to field under-16s HASTINGS Junior Football Club will field an under-16 team next season and has already appointed a coach. Former senior Hastings player Dean Reagan has been given the task and will work closely with under-18s coach Scotty Williams and senior coach Glenn Michie. Junior football club president Brian Tanner said the decision to field a team was made following a high level of interest and enquiries received by the club. “Dean is an experienced coach who is keen on individual and team improvement,” Tanner said. “At this stage our main priority is recruiting and we would like to hear from interested players.” For details, call Dean Reagan on 0432 402 061 or coaching director Pat Foy 0414 925 595. New man: Glenn Michie, right, welcomes Dean Reagan, coach of Hastings Junior Football Club’s proposed under-16s team.

Warriors’ first loss – the grand final By Andrew Brady THE Westernport Warriors tasted defeat for the first time in the Reclink 2012 season – in the big one, the A grade grand final against Doveton Cobras at the Peanut Farm Reserve in St Kilda on Wednesday last week. As expected, the Cobras went into the contest with a far more skillful outfit than in their final round encounter with the Warriors where the boys from Westernport held on to win by two points. The Cobras turned the tables on the Warriors in an enthralling encounter, winning 18.6-114 to 15.12-102. The Warriors went into the game without the competition’s star forward

Tim “Buddy” Churchin who was left stranded on 80 goals for the season after failing a fitness test on his troublesome hamstring on the morning of the game. The Warriors were confident they could cover the loss of Buddy with the inclusions of Chris “Head” Bastin – who to the relief of supporters took the field after a two-month sabbatical – and Zac “Borat” Milenkovic, who it was hoped would hold down the vacant full-forward position. The game started at a cracking pace and despite the Warriors having the wind, it was the Cobras who scored first. Things looked grim when Borat

Milenkovic tore his hamstring the first time he led for the ball and “Jumping” Joey Robb – arguably the Warriors’ best player – had to be subbed off after heavy attention from the Cobras. Despite the setbacks, the Warriors persisted and the likes of Kyle “Armed” Robb and Jordan “Hungry” Hendrix started to exert their influence on the game. Jake “Lleyton” Hewitt was performing to his usual high standard and Travis “Ditch” Dyke was dominating in the ruck. Danny “Ashley’n” Martin was finding the going tough in the key defensive post against a player who finished the game with seven goals.

During the game only a few points separated the sides as the likes of Travis “Lord” Maher, James “Crown” Cascini, Chris Bastin and Mathew “Spaghetti” Caruana gave their all to keep the Warriors in the contest. Troy “The Boy” De Vries impressed up forward but every time the Warriors looked in control, the Cobras would strike back and their accurate kicking for goal hurt the Warriors. In the last quarter there seemed to be Cobra players everywhere and the Warriors were out of run. The Warriors seemed outnumbered at every contest and Warriors skipper Chris “Posters” Helweg called for a count of players.

The players came to the centre of the ground where a count revealed the Cobras had been playing with an extra man. The resultant free kick and 50-metre penalty produced a goal for the Warriors and it was game on again. With the crowd on the edge of their seats, it was the Cobras who prevailed with some excellent forward pressure enabling them to kick the final two goals to seal the game. Despite the loss, the Warriors can be proud of their season. The team would like to thank sponsors, helpers and supporters for their backing during the season.

Swans v Hawks, Eagles v Pies best games Round 22 previews Friday 24 August Richmond v Essendon, MCG, 7.50pm Round 22 starts off with a blockbuster at the MCG between two of the big Victorian clubs. The Tigers for the 11th straight season miss the finals. The only thing the club can take from the year is the improvement of several key players. The Tigers gave it a good crack against Fremantle in Perth, but weren’t strong enough to win. For the Bombers, their season isn’t over yet, but the way they’re playing won’t get them anywhere near the eight. The Blues disposed of them in a crucial clash by 96 points, a disappointing result for Essendon. Same story as last week, on current form the Tigers are the better side, despite what the ladder says. Richmond by 23 points. Saturday 25 August St Kilda v GWS Giants, Etihad Stadium, 1.45pm With two weeks remaining in the home and away season, there are going to be a few dead rubbers and this is one of them. On the weekend the Saints played to keep their season alive, but failed dismally in losing to Geelong by 42 points. Small forwards

Milne and Saad were pretty good, but received no help from big men Koschitzke and Wilkes who were kept goalless. The Giants put up a decent fight against Melbourne. The margin should have been higher but due to errant goalkicking the Giants stayed in the game. Toby Greene was outstanding with 38 disposals and Power with 25 in his 300th. Saints shouldn’t have any problems here. St Kilda by 57 points.

Mumford stepped up, kicking three goals each. It was a slightly different story for the Hawks; they looked pretty sloppy against the Suns. Luke Hodge and Brad Sewell were at their usual best with 35 disposals each. Last time these teams met, Sydney upset Hawthorn in Launceston by 37 points and the fact they’re playing in Sydney will favour the Swans. Sydney by 4 points.

Port Adelaide v Brisbane, AAMI Stadium, 2.10pm In the Power’s last home game for 2012, they come up against Brisbane, a side they haven’t beaten since 2009. Under caretaker coach Garry Hocking, Port has shown more aggression and enthusiasm in recent matches and this is a good chance to win. As for the Lions, according to coach Michael Voss they had their win of the season when upsetting Adelaide by 10 points. Young midfielder Jack Redden is pushing hard for his first best and fairest win; it’ll be out of him and Tom Rockliff. Overall the Lions are playing closer to their best football at the moment than the Power. Brisbane by 37 points.

West Coast v Collingwood, Patersons Stadium, 7.40pm In a cracking clash in the west, the Magpies and Eagles play for a topfour spot with only two weeks till finals. The Eagles did what they had to do against the Power. Scott Selwood was excellent with 34 disposals. There are doubts over injuries to Andrew Gaff and Adam Selwood for this week’s game. Collingwood played one of its worst games of the season and was squashed by North Melbourne. The Magpies had no forward line, with Cloke, Dawes and Tarrant all struggling. The Pies have the wood on West Coast, having beaten them in every game since 2007 and they also travel very well. Collingwood by 2 points.

Sydney v Hawthorn, SCG, 4.40pm In the match of the round, the two best teams in the competition play for top spot. The Swans recovered from a slow start to smash the Bulldogs by 82 points; Josh Kennedy was scintillating with 34 disposals. Tall players Goodes, Roberts-Thomson, Pyke and

Gold Coast v Carlton, Metricon Stadium, 7.40pm It has been 16 months since these teams have met and that clash was the Gold Coast’s inaugural football match. Sixteen months on and not a lot has changed for the Suns; in fact the Suns have won fewer games than

this time last year. For the Blues they got their revenge on the Bombers in a 96-point win. From the opening bounce Carlton monstered Essendon with Kade Simpson and Marc Murphy starring. The Blues are on the verge of entering the eight and need to win one more game than Fremantle, their percentage guaranteeing them a spot. The Blues have something to play for and will win easily. Carlton by 62 points. Sunday 26 August Geelong v Western Bulldogs, Simonds Stadium, 1.10pm For the first time since round 18, the Cats return home to Simonds Stadium, this time to play the Dogs. On the weekend the Cats crushed St Kilda’s finals chances with an impressive 42-point victory. Tom Hawkins bounced back from concussion and kicked six goals, and James Kelly was excellent, notching up 27 disposals. Top four is probably beyond the Cats but a win gives them a sniff. The Bulldogs played an excellent first quarter against Sydney before being overrun and losing by 82 points (the story of their season). Ryan Griffen was best on ground with 47 disposals and young midfielder Lin Jong played a great game. Geelong by 79 points. North Melbourne v Fremantle, Etihad Stadium, 3.15pm In a top eight clash with the seventh and eighth ranked teams, both will be looking to cement a spot in the finals.

For North Melbourne, they’re pretty much guaranteed a spot after an upset win against Collingwood. The Roos were excellent in the five-goal win, especially big men Todd Goldstein and Scott Thompson. The Dockers had one of their ugly victories, this time against the Tigers by 22 points. It wasn’t special, but they got the points and jumped into the eight. The fact they’re playing in Melbourne will be a huge advantage to the Kangaroos. North Melbourne by 14 points. Melbourne v Adelaide, MCG, 4.40pm Sunday night at the ’G will be the last time we see former Melbourne captain Brad Green in the red and blue as the forward has announced his retirement. The Demons will be looking to continue a run of good form to end a disappointing 2012. They degeated the Giants in Canberra; Jack Trengove was his team’s best with 23 disposals. The Crows failed to take advantage of their soft draw and a top two position on the ladder is at risk. Against the Lions they struggled to deal with the pace of the game and Rising Star favourite Daniel Talia went off with a thigh injury. The Crows should win this easily. Adelaide by 58 points.

Mazda design praised as CX-5 wins European award READERS of the Auto Bild Group have chosen the Mazda CX-5 as the winner and most attractive vehicle in the “SUV, van and all-wheel” category at the publication’s 2012 European Design Awards. About 200,000 readers from all Auto Bild subsidiary publications in 15 countries voted on which European car had the best design in various categories. The Mazda CX-5 sprinted away from its SUV and all-wheel competitors with 17.8 per cent of the votes to take home the European design trophy in its segment ahead of the Audi A6 Allroad and the Audi Q3. The Mazda CX-5 was voted as the most attractive new car in its category by readers from several countries and this was enough to secure the overall category win when the votes from all European countries were tallied. The win follows the Mazda3’s success in the 2009 Auto Bild European Design Awards where it was voted the most attractive new car in the “small and compact car” category even before official market launch in Germany. It was Mazda’s second European design award in recent weeks with the Takeri concept honoured earlier in the month by a jury of international car journalists at the 2012 Automotive Brand Contest. The Mazda CX-5 is the first production model to feature the company’s new “KODO – Soul of Motion” design language, which combines motion with the beauty and power of nature.
